Gates of Vienna News Feed 4/15/2018

A judge in the UK has ruled that a refugee family from Sri Lanka will be awarded millions of pounds in damages from the National Health Service because of the death of a newborn baby. The baby’s mother speaks no English, and the NHS was deemed liable because its midwife failed to give the mother instructions in her native language on how to feed her child.

In other British news, since the beginning of this year, a machete attack has been committed in Britain every 90 minutes, on average.

It’s Official: Trump Tax Cuts Are Boosting Growth and Mostly Paying for Themselves

Taxes: When the Congressional Budget Office released its updated budget forecast, everyone focused on the deficit number. But buried in the report was the CBO’s tacit admission that it vastly overestimated the cost of the Trump tax cuts, because it didn’t account for the strong economic growth they would generate.

A New Law is Needed to Protect Lawyer-Client Communications

by Alan M. Dershowitz

The raid on President Trump’s lawyer dramatically demonstrates the need for new legislation to assure that no FBI agents or US attorneys ever get to read privileged communications between a lawyer and a client, a doctor and a patient, a priest and penitent, or a husband and a wife.

Under current law, confidential material is read or listened to by a taint team comprised of FBI agents and prosecutors. The taint team then sends over to prosecutors all non-privileged material. But a number of FBI agents and prosecutors have already read and listened to the privileged material. They must be trusted not to leak it or misuse it in any way. Even if they don’t, the very fact that government agents have been given access to the most confidential and sacred materials should trouble every American, because the government does have the right to seize material that is not privileged, and such material may be comingled with privileged material.

America Has Lost Her Constitution, Part 4

The encroachment of the federal government into the States rights and the rights of the American people has been done a little at a time as so not to be noticed by the people. Our rights have been slowly eroded by those in power that want America to be part of the New World Order. This includes virtually all of the Democrat Party and the RINO’s like John McCain, Lindsey Graham, Orrin Hatch, Jeff Flake just to name a few. These Republicans also include George H.W. Bush and George W. Bush. This should have become very evident in the last general election when none of the former Republican presidents voted for the Republican candidate, Donald J. Trump. They vigorously opposed him and still do. We can also see why they oppose him because he is exposing the massive corruption that is deeply embedded in the federal government from the so-called justice department, the FBI and even the IRS. Its ugly tentacles reach deep and they don’t want to let go.

There are other factors that we need to address as well. Our original Constitution along with its amendments are not the same as we have today. Today’s 13th Amendment refers to slavery but in a copy of the Constitution that was printed in 1825 referred to the prohibition of lawyers from serving in government. In 1983 David Dodge and Tom Dunn were searching for evidence of government corruption in public records in a Belfast Library on the coast of Maine. They uncovered probably the most explosive evidence ever uncovered in our history. They uncovered the United States Constitution printed in 1825, which was to prohibit lawyers from serving in Government.

Extensive research since then has uncovered the following:

1.) The unlawful removal of a ratified 13th Amendment from the US Constitution.

2.) The Amendment had been printed in at least 18 separate publications by 11 different states and territories from 1819 to 1868.

3.) The Amendment was secretly removed from documents by a group of lawyers and bankers. In its place was entered the slave Amendment, which was the 14th amendment, which was changed to the 13th Amendment. All of this occurred during the turmoil of the civil war.

4.) Since the Amendment was not lawfully repealed, it is still the law of the land.

5.) Colorado printed the correct 13th Amendment in 1668. [This probably should read 1868.]

What we are experiencing is a complete side-stepping of our Constitution by people who are looking to keep the American people in ignorance concerning our rights. That is one reason why we no longer teach our Constitution in our schools. I grew up in the 50’s and 60’s graduating in 1968 and they were still teaching the Constitution then but by the time my kids started school it was no longer part of the curriculum. For America to stay free, we must keep our heritage alive and that can only be done by keeping it in front of our eyes and the eyes of our youth. Noah Webster stated “Every child in America should be acquainted with his own country. He should read books that furnish him with ideas that will be useful to him in life and practice. As soon as he opens his lips, he should rehearse the history of his own country.” We have failed to do this and in doing so we have failed our children.

American Parents, Fight for Your Children

For at least five years, American government school educators have been indoctrinating students. The long ago abandoned the concept of making sure the young Americans receive the best education possible. No longer are most educators making sure their students are tops in math, science, American history, language skills, etc. Now their focus is anti gun rights, a 57 variety of sexes and gender bending, hatred toward the United States, Christianity, fatherhood and the free market. In fact, many educators proudly instruct elementary students on how to have oral sex and sexually pleasure each other in other ways.

Finally, some parents have had enough. Many throughout the United States and beyond are beginning to turn their quiet frustration into bold action. Admittedly, some parents have tried to quietly express their disappointment in the demented direction government schools have taken. To add insult to injury, American taxpayers fork over more money per student than almost every other nation on earth. But unfortunately, Students in this republic are among the least truly educated yet most indoctrinated. Through the years I have identified the government school system as the number one enemy of the United States of America.

For the first time in American history, most college students believe is ok to destroy the free speech of those who for example likes America and President Trump. On college campi throughout the land if someone simply wares a MAGA hat, they may be beaten into a coma. That kind of behavior is permissible, as long it is pro American, pro legal immigration, pro Trump supporters, etc. being beaten and deprived of their right of freedom of expression. The root of moral corruption is deeply ensconced within government schools and are morally destructive to students before nine years of age. Students are now indoctrinated with material that would make many adults blush from embarrassment.

America Has Lost Her Constitution, Part 2

One has to set back and think about what happened in America where the respect for our Constitution was lost. Personally, I believe it was the Democrat Party as they have been the biggest violators of that sacred document. One just has to look at the condition of the country after Democrats have been in control for a while and you can see why I make that comment. California has gone bankrupt under Jerry Brown and RINO Arnold Schwarzenegger, Detroit has been under Democrat rule since 1962, it looks like a third world country. The top ten ghettos are the result of Democrat ‘leadership’. A man by the name of N. Grigsby who died in 1890 had this comment placed on his gravestone: “Through this inscription I wish to enter my dying protest against what is called the Democrat Party. I have watched it closely since the days of (Andrew) Jackson and know that all the misfortunes of our nation has come through this so-call party. Therefore, beware of this party of treason”.

When we look at presidents FDR, LBJ, Jimmy Carter, Bill Clinton, Barack Obama and president wanna-be Hillary Clinton we see that treason runs in that party. Even Norman Mattoon Thomas, a six time presidential candidate for the Socialist Party of America stated in 1944: “The American people will never knowingly adopt socialism. But, under the name of liberalism they will adopt every fragment of the socialist program, until one day America will be a socialist nation, without knowing how it happened. I no longer need to run for the Socialist Party, the Democrat Party has adopted our platform.”

Some may call me an alarmist, but facts don’t lie! Jimmy Carter’s National Security Advisor, Zibignew Brezinski, was, in my eyes, a traitor. His father was a Polish nobleman that served in Nazi Berlin and Soviet Moscow. It is never a good idea to allow those that favor the overthrow of your government to be involved in your government. Brzezinski was active in many establishment foreign policy institutions, such as the Council on Foreign Relations, and the Bilderberg meetings. In 1973, with the backing of David Rockefeller, he helped to found the Trilateral Commission, where he consistently advocated moderation in US policies. All three institutions were the target of paranoid suspicion on the American right. It was through the Trilateral Commission, which advocated co-operation between the US, Europe and Japan, that he met Carter, then known mainly as a liberal governor of Georgia. In 1975 Brzezinski became Carter’s chief foreign policy adviser, and in 1977, when Carter was inaugurated president, his national security adviser. [2] All of these organizations are fighting for a One World Government. That means that the government of the United States must be removed to attain this.

McCabe and Strzok Contrived to Destroy Lt. General Flynn

We’re in a world war against a messianic mass movement of evil people, most of them inspired by a totalitarian ideology, Radical Islam. But we are not permitted to speak or write those two words, which is potentially fatal to our culture. — The Field of Fight by Lt. General Michael T. Flynn

The above quote by General Flynn is one of many reasons he is a threat to the massive intel community and was targeted for removal from the Trump administration by Mueller and the traitorous partisan ilk within the FBI.

It is becoming obvious that this man who bleeds red, white and blue never lied to anyone, including VP Pence. For over a year we have watched what has happened to this great American patriot, who served his country with dedication and honor for nearly 35 years while those who have committed multiple crimes are never prosecuted.

What has happened to Mike since he left the Trump administration is an American tragedy and his siblings have started the Mike Flynn legal defense fund. The exorbitant cost of legal defense has financially broken this family, and they need our help.

After AG Sessions recused himself, Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein appointed Mueller nearly a year ago to lead an investigation without parameters. Mueller’s job is to obscure the abuses of the US surveillance apparatus that occurred under the Obama administration.

President Bush: Islam is the “Religion of Peace and Tolerance”

One of the strangest and most misleading statements ever uttered by an American President occurred when George W. Bush described Islam as “a religion of peace and tolerance.” He was probably told to make that statement by his controllers who were busily planning the New World Order.

The true nature of Islam is found in the 109 verses of the Koran that demand war against all non-Muslims, or so-called “infidels.” Many verses are quite graphic, and command believers to sever heads and fingers and kill infidels wherever they may be.

The true nature of Islam is found in the 109 verses of the Koran that demand war against all non-Muslims, or so-called “infidels.” Many verses are quite graphic, and command believers to sever heads and fingers and kill infidels wherever they may be.

If Islam were subjected to the same scrutiny and historical standards by which the West is routinely judged and condemned — — based on such considerations as slavery, imperialism, warfare, intolerance and misogyny — the verdict would be devastating for Islam.

Some Westerners accept the notion that Islam is simply another monotheistic religion, and thus similar to Christianity and Judaism: They believe that Islam preaches the New Testament virtues of peace, love, and tolerance. Many are shocked or embarrassed to discover the bloody genesis of Islam and its history indicate otherwise.

Paying “lip service” to peace and tolerance may win over naïve infidels, but when every twelfth verse of the Koran speaks to Allah’s hatred of non-Muslims — or else calls for their death, forced conversion, or subjugation — it is little wonder that sympathy for terrorism and violence runs deeply in the broader Muslim community. Very few Muslims can bring themselves to roundly condemn Islamic terrorism.

The Deep State Closes in on the Donald, Part 2: Mueller’s War

What is going on in the eastern Mediterranean and over the skies and on the ground in Syria is absolutely nuts; it’s also scary dangerous and utterly unnecessary, too.

After all, the imminent Russian/American military clash is over the skeleton of an artificial backwater nation confected in 1916 by two swells in the British and French foreign offices. At length, what was never a nation anyway has finally been reduced to rubble, misery and sectarian fragments.

So there is nothing to contest now, and, in fact, there never was. The sovereign government of Syria long ago invited the Russians in and Washington out. Period.

Why, then, are commercial aircraft being warned to stay out of Syrian airspace, while the Russian fleet at Tartus scrambles into defensive redeployments?

Likewise, why is the Syrian air force being forced to hide its planes and helicopters in its own country, while Washington steams an armada of warships toward the Mediterranean that is larger and more lethal than the entire Navy of almost every other country in the world?

The answer is simple and terrible: Washington has become the War Capital of the planet and now teems with a whole generation of war-obsessed bureaucrats, think-tankers, consultants, lobbyists, militarists, imperialists, neocon belligerents and the legions of military/industrial/spy complex racketeers who feed off a hideously bloated national security budget.

Of course, you also have thousands of politicians — —both those now in office and those who hang-around afterwards and get prosperous by hanging-out a shingle to ply the business of operating Washington’s global empire. Among them are the brainwashed, the stupid, the larcenous, the sanctimonious, the venal, the flag-wavers, the sunshine patriots and the ideologues of American exceptionalism, responsibility-to-protect (R2P), democracy propagation and plain old imperial hegemony.

Needless to say, our purpose here is not to play the name game. Instead, we are trying to color, characterize and concretize what we mean by the Deep State, and to explain why the latter is carrying on such a relentless, vicious and dark campaign to take the Donald down — —even at risk of war with Russia and nuclear armaggedon for the entire planet.

The Power of Images

According to a Chinese saying, “an image is worth a thousand words.” So, an image that has generated several thousand words is a photo of ultra-capitalist David Rockefeller warmly smiling while shaking hands with ultra-communist Fidel Castro. Several explanations have been advanced to explain this seemingly obvious incongruence, all them unsatisfactory. How can we explain this anomaly?

In his Memoirs, David deceptively refers to this October 23, 1995, photo as the result of a chance encounter with Castro at a reception commemorating the fiftieth anniversary of the U.N. as his first one. According to David, he knew that Castro wanted to meet him, but a convenient time had not been found. Then,

“At the formal reception hosted by Secretary-General Boutros-Ghali at the U.N., Castro spotted me, charged across the delegates’ lounge, and grabbed my hand, shaking it warmly. I was chagrined, sensing the photo frenzy about to erupt. But I smiled as the paparazzi snapped away. Predictably, the photo of “the Capitalist and the Communist” appeared on the front page of newspapers from Ankara to Zanzibar; and just as predictably I was criticized for appearing with a man considered one of the nation’s bitterest enemies.”

In his Memoirs, David also mentioned how he enjoyed meeting leaders of the most undemocratic, dictatorial countries, such as Romania’s Nicolae Ceausescu, Poland’s Wojciech Jaruzelski, Paraguay’s Alfredo Stroessner, Algeria’s Houari Boumedien, Zaire’s Mobutu Sese Seko, Chile’s Augusto Pinochet, Iraq’s Saddam Hussein and Soviet Union’s Nikita Khrushchev. Last, but not least, he enjoyed visiting his buddy Fidel Castro. No wonder some of his critics have said, as David himself mentioned in his Memoirs, “David Rockefeller has never met a dictator he didn’t like.”

As he mentioned in his Memoirs, many people criticized David for meeting Castro, but I haven’t found any criticism of Castro shaking David’s hand, allegedly considered one of Cuban tyrant’s bitterest enemies, so warmly and affectionately as you can verify in the photo of their “chance” encounter. Obviously, the love and admiration was mutual. I haven not found, however, a single mention of the fact that, as David never met a dictaor he didn’t like, Castro never met a member of the Council of Foreign Relations he didn’t like. Key CFR members Castro loved were Herbert Matthews, Dean Acheson, Dan Rather, Barbara Walters, Peter Peterson, Robert McNamara, George McGovern, Jesse Jackson, Julia Sweig. John Kerry, William Rogers, and, of course, David Rockefeller himself, who always maintained a cozy relationship with the Cuban “Communist” tyrant.

The Shot Heard Round the World That Prevented Gun Confiscation in America

“What a glorious morning this is!” said Samuel Adams to John Hancock at the Battle of Lexington, Massachusetts, 243 years ago on April 19, 1775. It was the day of the “The Shot Heard Round the World”.

Indeed, that first bloodshed in the American War for Independence was an extremely important event. Due to the modern day revisionist history tactics of education textbooks in America, we are rarely told that this day was really about gun confiscation. You see, King George III was all about gun control for the colonists.

He had instructed his generals to begin rounding up the guns of the colonists in our land for one reason — so he might oppress them with the measures of a tyrant. The fact is the Red Coats went to Lexington and Concord that day to confiscate the guns, ammunition, and gunpowder of the American colonists.

Shocking to many modern-day pastors, ministers, and Christians alike is the location of the guns and munitions of the Colonists. The arsenal of this freedom-loving militia was in the Church Meeting House on Lexington Green. In fact, a militiaman testified that Captain Parker said to his men, “Every man of you, who is equipped, follow me; and those of you who are not equipped, go into the meeting-house and furnish yourselves from the magazine, and immediately join the company.”

And the Pastor of that church, Jonas Clarke, was a significant voice calling on his people to resist the British. The members of the militia on that Green that April day in 1775, were members of the Congregation, which met at that Meeting House. You might say that this church launched the War for Independence.

Americans need to remember this history, especially today when a new style of Red Coats disguised as educators, politicians, and now many high school students (being manipulated by delusional thinking) are all rallying for federal government gun control. These groups descend upon our nation’s capital or on our own village green. The agenda is the same, though the style of clothing has changed. Tragically, these factions in the modern American society have left off true constitutional understanding.

The Stories That Government is Afraid to Tell

Dateline High Point, North Carolina:

In June, Kay Council of High Point, NC came home one night to find a note from her husband, Alex: “My dearest Kay — I have taken my life in order to provide capital for you. The IRS and its liens, which have been taken against our property illegally by a runaway agency of our government, have dried up all sources of credit for us. So I have made the only decision I can. It’s purely a business decision… You will find my body on the lot on the north side of the house.” At the end of a nine-year battle over a disallowed tax shelter, the IRS claimed that the Councils owed $300,000 in taxes, interest, and penalties.

When their financial resources were exhausted, Mr. Council committed suicide to provide Mrs. Council with $250,000 insurance money to continue the battle. Ironically, Mrs. Council eventually won a court ruling that she and her husband owed the IRS nothing. Mrs. Council, 48, said, “I was cheated out of growing old with the man I love.”

Dateline Columbia River, Washington State:

Raven bought her land in 1999, not knowing the horror she would endure at the hands of the U. S. Fish and Wildlife Service (USFW) and two non-governmental organizations (NGO’s) known as the Columbia Land Trust (CLT) and another NGO, Ducks Unlimited (DU). Armed with millions of dollars of federal grant money, USFW and the two NGO’s set about to restore the Grays River to its pre-human days, in the pursuit of salmon habitat recovery.

Women Still Made Dupes by Reds

I have no idea where it came from but on my desk this morning I found a May 21, 1962 San Francisco Examiner article entitled: Peace Demonstration — Bay Women Made Dupes by Reds. And what is all over the news today? (Jan. 20) Women protesting President Trump and calling for his impeachment.

The 1962 article told of scores of well intentioned dedicated women throughout the Bay area and in major cities elsewhere had been made the dupes of known Communists and left wing sympathizers operating openly and behind the scenes in the much publicized Women for Peace demonstrations. These allegedly “spontaneous” demonstrations with their manufactured signs have for the most part been pre-conceived and organized by Communists and their supporters. Many housewives and mothers, sincere in their contributions of time and money for what they have construed as a worthy cause, are totally unaware of the influence wielded by the commies and their cohorts. It went on to say the record is clear and named all the women who are communists. The role of the active and pro-communists in Women for Peace is more than routine participation. They are calling the shots. (This picture of two young ladies was taken at the Grants Pass, Oregon Women For Peace rally on Saturday Jan. 20, 2018).

At one time we had the House Committee on Un-American Activities and in executive sessions they heard sworn testimony linking at least one of the women to the pro-Communist Women for Peace. Immigration officials charged her with becoming a Communist following her entry into the United States. She lost an appeal and was ordered deported on Nov. 18, 1958 but obviously was still here in 1962.

Martin Dies, as chairman of the House Committee on Un-American activities, fought a desperate battle to expose red subversives and when he made it clear he intended to fully investigate communism, liberal reaction was sure and swift. Every federal department especially the Department of Justice which Dies had expected would provide information rejected his requests and refused to cooperate. And so it is today when we are learning the Department of Justice UNDER President Barack Obama has been involved in trying to dig up dirt on President Trump with illegal FISA warrants.

Windsor Police Extend the “Dark Side” of Habibullah Ahmad’s Vicious Attack

On April 21, residents of Windsor, Ontario, will participate in a cleanup of the Ganatchio Trail, a volunteer event to recall Anne Widholm. As the Windsor Star reports, she is the 75-year-old victim of “a vicious, unprovoked assault on the trail last October.” Anne Widholm used to walk the trail and pick up trash, but the vicious, unprovoked assault calls for more than a cleanup day.

The Star report does not mention the man who attacked the 75-year-old woman. That would be Habibullah Ahmad, 21, a “Windsor man,” who also calls himself “Daniel.” Ahmad inflicted “the worst skull fractures I’ve seen in my 12 years here in Windsor,” as neurosurgeon Dr. Balraj Jhawar told reporters. The victim’s lacerated scalp, bruised face and fractured neck vertebrae were “among the most brutal things I’ve seen in my career.”

Machete Attack Every 90 Minutes in ‘Gun-Free’ Britain

Recorded machete attacks in the UK have shot up by nearly five times in just three years, with the majority in the capital, London.

The huge number of crimes committed with the deadly, sword-like weapons means there is an average of 15 a day in the UK, or one every 90 minutes.

Figures uncovered using freedom of information requests by the Daily Mail show that police dealt with 928 crimes involving machetes in the last two months of 2017.

71 Out of 103 Destroyed: Here’s How Syria’s Air Defense Repelled West’s Missiles

Perhaps the most surprising news surrounding the US, British and French strike on Syria Saturday morning was the report that the country’s Air Defense Force managed to shoot down just shy of 70% of the Western cruise missiles launched. Sputnik looks at how the Syrians managed to do it.

The Western attack, executed this morning at 4:00 am Syrian time on April 14, saw US Navy warships in the Red Sea and Air Force B-1B bombers and F-15 and F-16 aircraft rain dozens of ship and air-launched cruise missiles down on the Syrian capital of Damascus, an airbase outside the city, a so-called chemical weapons storage facility near Homs, and an equipment storage facility and command post, also near Homs. B1-Bs are typically armed with JASSM cruise missiles, which have a 450 kg warhead and a range of 370 km. US Navy warships launched Tomahawks, which have 450 kg warheads and an operational range of between 1,300 and 2,500 km.

Pretext for Strike on Syria ‘Obvious Hoax’ — US State Senator Black

The strikes on Syria ordered by US President Donald Trump are immoral and based on a clear fraud, US State Senator from Virginia Richard Black told Sputnik following the attack.

“US ordered a brutal attack on Syria tonight. Children’s arms and legs will be blown off; Syrian soldiers will be blinded and crippled. The war is a disgrace,” Black said on Friday. “How many wars will we fight? I fought for this country, but this war is immoral. It is an unjust war of aggression.”

Earlier in the day, the United States, the United Kingdom and France launched airstrikes at Syria over the reports of a chemical attack in the Syrian suburb of Duma. The Western countries are accusing the Syrian government of being behind the alleged chemical attack while Damascus refuted the allegations. Russian officials said that the chemical attack was staged as a pretext for the use of force against the Syrian government.

“Syrians wouldn’t possibly use gas, since terrorists were quickly surrendering,” Black said on Friday after the airstrikes. “Syria certainly wouldn’t gas civilians and leave soldiers untouched. It was an obvious hoax.”

Black, who personally met with President Bashar Assad during a visit to Syria in April 2016, warned that Trump’s increasingly rash actions risk escalating into nuclear war.

Russia Has Indisputable Evidence Douma CW Incident Fake

Sergey Lavrov explained indisputable evidence proves the April 7 Douma CW incident was staged by special services of a foreign country.

The guilty one is either America, Britain, France, Israel, or perhaps elements from these countries working together.

Lavrov said the following:

“The mission of the Organization for the Prohibition of Chemical Weapons (OPCW) has set off to Syria not so quickly and without abundant enthusiasm but under our and Syrian pressure. It is due to arrive in Damascus in the morning of April 14.”

“We expect the mission to go without any delay to Douma where Russian specialists who examined this place have not found any confirmations of the use of chemical weapon.”

“We have the irrefutable data that this (CW incident) was staged. (S)pecial services of a country, which is now seeking to be in the first ranks of the Russophobic campaign, were involved in this staged event.”

The incident was fake, no evidence of toxic substances found in Douma, no one ill or hospitalized from chemical exposure, no one dead.

Syria’s UN envoy Bashar al-Jaafari said US-supported terrorists “acquired chemical substances from Libya a long time ago from the Libyan stock.”

“This operation was facilitated by the Turkish intelligence, Saudi intelligence and the American and French intelligence services. They smuggled chemicals from Libya to Istanbul on board of civilian airlines and the guy who was in charge of transporting these substances was a guy named Haitham al-Qassar,” adding:

We Have Evidence of UK’s Role in Staging Douma Provocation — Russian MoD

An apparent false flag chemical attack in the Syrian town of Douma on April 7 has served as a pretext for the United States to threaten the Middle Eastern country with a missile strike; Russia has been calling for a transparent investigation while local doctors have said no one has requested any medical treatments for poisoning.

The Russian Defense Ministry held a press briefing on what the Western narrative describes as an alleged chemical attack in Syria’s Eastern Ghouta. No evidence has been presented to support the claim. A Russian chemical corps commission that has been sent to Douma reported that no traces of chemical poisoning were found. On April 12, the US defense secretary acknowledged that the Pentagon had no evidence of chlorine or sarin use in Douma.

Speaking at the briefing, Russian Defense Ministry spokesman Igor Konashenkov said that the ministry has enough evidence that the planned provocation with the use of chemical weapons was carried out in Syria’s Douma on April 7.

‘Planned Provocation’

He added that the United States and Western countries continue their “indiscriminate and unfounded accusations” against the legitimate Syrian government over the alleged use of chemical weapons against civilians in Eastern Ghouta.

However almost a week on, the United States and some European countries have failed to provide any evidence, according to him.

“The Russian Defense Ministry has plenty of evidence that on April 7, a planned provocation was carried out in Douma with the aim of misleading the world community. The provocation’s real purpose today is clear to everyone — to prod the United States to launch missile strikes against Syria,” Konashenkov stressed.

7 Surprising Things You Didn’t Know About North Korea

Here are seven real facts about North Korea you probably don’t know that may reshape the way you think about this reclusive nation.

1. North Korea ranks 51st in population, but has one of the largest standing militaries The North Korean military. KCNA/Reuters

CIA data ranks North Korea’s estimated 25 million-person population 51st out of the world’s nations. North Korea’s outsized military is among the most powerful in the world, boasting approximately 1,190,000 active-duty troops, according to Newsweek.

China, the world’s leader in both population (over 1.3 billion) and military size (2.3 million), has a military that employs about 0.18% of the population.

North Korea’s military, on the other hand, employs about 4.7% of the total population…

5. North Korea holds political elections every five years

Strange as it might seem for a dictatorship to hold elections, North Korean citizens go to the polls every five years. However, the ballots they receive only list one candidate name, for the office of Supreme People’s Assembly deputy in their district, according to The Economist.

The only decision the voters have to make is whether to vote for the sole candidate listed or to vote against them, which involves placing their ballot in a separate box from the positive votes and having their identity noted, which could be considered an act of treason, The Economist reports.

Lesbians in Migrant-Heavy French Suburbs Forced to Hide Their Sexuality

French sociologist Salima Amari claims in a new book that homosexual women growing up in migrant-heavy French suburbs are forced to hide their sexuality and many are even forced to move elsewhere if they “come out”.

Amari spent six years interviewing 52 women of primarily North African descent who live in some of the heavily migrant populated suburbs across the country and found many wanting to remain “invisible” so as not to provoke homophobic attacks or be shunned by their families, L’Express reports.

UK: Refugee Family Set to Win Millions From NHS for Not Using Foreign Language to Explain Importance of Feeding Newborn

A refugee family is set for a multi-million-pound NHS payout because a mother spoke no English and hospital staff did not explain to her how to care for her newborn in her native language.

The child of the Rajatheepan family, originally from Sri Lanka, has been left with severe brain damage because midwives did not explain the importance of feeding the newborn regularly, a judge has ruled.

How the 1960s Made Everything Worse

While the Vietnam War became inseparably intertwined with Johnson’s name and was a defining mark of his presidency, he really viewed his Great Society agenda as the legacy for which he wanted to be remembered. In his mind, he was attempting to fulfill and complete the New Deal programs initiated by his mentor, FDR, in the 1930s.

What guided the Great Society agenda was an arrogant pretense of knowledge. There was a general attitude among many economists and a large number of self-proclaimed social critics that most of the “evils” of the world — poverty, illiteracy, lack of decent housing or medical care, and environmental degradation — were all due to a lack of willpower and well intentioned and implemented policy. The guiding premise was that the private sector had failed in meeting these problems and, indeed, may have contributed to them due to a disregard for “national needs,” while pursuing private purposes.

In a speech in May of 1964, President Johnson proposed a series of “activist” government policies that would create a “Great Society” for America. He told his audience that he was determined “to assemble the best thought and broadest knowledge from all over the world to find [the] answers” to these social ills. In 1965, following Johnson’s reelection to the presidency, he initiated a wide variety of pieces of legislation to fight his declared “wars” on these social ills. Government programs and spending were either introduced or expanded in almost every domestic direction.

Among the leading Great Society programs were:

Progressivism is Neo-Communism

By Dr. Ileana Johnson Paugh

The obsessed and irrational infatuation of intolerant Millennials with neo-communism they euphemistically call progressivism can be understood when one takes into account academia’s professorial and administrative cadre of communist indoctrinators and the world-wide curricula similar to Common Core, developed with advice, textbooks, and funds from elitist billionaires who want to re-engineer societies around the globe in the borderless and diabolically mish-mashed coexist image of their totalitarian dreams of control. The common denominator of this infatuation is unrestrained globalism and aggressive green growth environmentalism

People must like the globalist direction because they keep electing scruples-less people who will do anything for power, control, and money and will push the globalist agenda through stealthy “consensus.” And the political swamp gets deeper and deeper, swallowing the few honest individuals inclined to fight the corrupt behemoth.

This neo-communism is not unlike the totalitarian communism that allegedly died in Eastern Europe in 1989, with the fall of the Berlin Wall. Communism re-emerged in the European Union under the commercial and trade guise of one market, one currency, no passports, and no borders.

After careful planning, the communism that went underground re-emerged with a new image as a softer and gentler form of government tyranny. There is no plan to starve and gulag 100 million people like they did previously in the old communist system. They just want to reduce the planet’s population by a few billion because overpopulation, they say, is destroying the planet.

Progressivism is still a form of oppression by government control, confiscation of guns, punishment for “hate speech and hate crimes” as decided by the powers that be, diluted education which shapes a compliant global citizenry with no recognition or much knowledge of who they are and their real history, no distinct nationality, and no divergent opinions from those expressed by the government in power and its mouthpiece, the zealous press corps.

U.N. Plan for Your Mental Health

Eakman says schools find every excuse to refer pupils for psychiatric counseling — an activity that usually results in prescriptions for psychiatric drugs having questionable track records. Some of them are over diagnosed. Nor is the drugging of Americans limited to children. This new hyper-invasive nature of technology is a distraction also for the elderly. In 2006, a local Statesman Journal reporter wrote this new technology is driving us nuts. Phones ringing, e-mails arriving at the computer, and, of course, since then, Iphones, Facebook Google, etc. While the so-called “experts” indicate disorders often start in young people and go untreated for years, this new technology is the cause of “mental illness” in the elderly and in 2008 we learned that the Veterans Administration lured exhausted returning veterans into lethal psychotropic drug tests. [Read]

Under psychiatry’s invented criteria, there isn’t a single normal childhood behavior which doesn’t fall within the broad “symptoms” which comprise so-called “mental illness.” Some of the commonly seen psychiatric labels for children are: Attention Deficit Disorder (ADD), more recently called Attention Deficit Disorder (ADHD), Minimal brain Dysfunction (MB), Learning Disability (LD) or Impulse Disorder (ID). If, for any reason, a teacher decides there is a problem with a particular child, there is no way the child can escape “diagnosis.” Labeling the child insane takes blame away from incompetent teacher. In addition, a student’s values must be unfrozen via values clarification by change agents teachers, those disagreeing with the need for “common values (those values we all have in common) will be labeled as in need of mental health services, because they will be identified as having “oppositional deficit disorder.” [Read]

The Dec. 22, 2006 SEATTLE TIMES said “Mental Health practioners say they regularly confront extreme forms of racism, homophobia and other prejudice in the course of therapy, and some patients are disabled by these beliefs. The DSM-V Diagnostic Manual that was published in 2012, sponsored by the American Psychiatric Association, according to critics comes close to pathologizing the entire American population. With government having taken full advantage of such expert opinion from the Psychiatric indujstry, tens of millions of Americans could be placed on the mental illness list for just being moody, and declared to be too active or inactive… Mandatory drugging of noncomformists, slow learners, and naughty kids is now part and parcel of a nasty and little publicized agenda to engineer uniformity of opinion without appearing blatant about it. Children, always happy to talk about themselves, are busy filling out opinion polls and surveys— especially in social studies and “health” (sex education) classes…Even toddlers are being assessed in “early childhood programs.”

“Why Do They Think Islam is a Religion of Peace?”

Muslim Persecution of Christians: October 2017

Three Muslim men kidnapped a 12-year-old Christian girl, gang-raped, and sadistically tortured her, including burning her body with cigarettes. When her mother of went to police the same day, they refused to start a criminal investigation or even to file a complaint. — Pakistan.

“These attacks are being carried out daily…” — A villager in Nigeria.

“I fled from Pakistan to escape violence such as this, but more and more the same violence is coming into Britain. Freedom of religion should be the right of any British citizen but today I feel unsafe…” — Tajamal Amar, Derby, England.

“Why do they [Western people] think Islam is a religion of peace? These people have been killing us for decades and your media just ignores it. Now they are killing you and still your President Obama [had] called it a peaceful religion. We see Western leaders saying that over and over again. Why?” — A Nigerian Christian.

  1. Does the Sri Lankan woman not have mammaries? How could a mother be so obtuse as to not know that she has to nurse her infant?

    Hopefully the judge who decided the case has not reproduced; such idiocy is likely hereditary and should lead to disbarment as well as sterilization to ensure no more fools are inflicted upon the British taxpayer.

          • They certainly know how to suck on the the teat
            Of the ever giving welfare state though.
            No doubt this case was covered by legal aid too!

            Meanwhile pensioners who have paid into the
            System all their working lives are denied hip
            And knee replacements, being told they are
            Non essential procedures.

            When oh when will the British Tax payers wake up
            Forgiveness sake and demand and to this

            No doubt they were awarded legal aid too.

    • If you look at this map of London, you will see the blue in the upper right hand corner, marking the area in London with the highest density & greatest geographical coverage of people who speak Tamil.

      This is the very region of London where this clueless woman lived. That is, she was surrounded by other Tamil speakers. Outside of Sri Lanka, this woman could not have found a more suitable place for her to give birth.

      For over a decade I had Bengali neighbours on either side of me when I lived in London. In that entire time, they never learned to say anything in English. Today I was in a Post Office while a woman was collecting her “Job Seekers Allowance”. She looked Turkish. She had a 16yo son with her who acted as linguistic go-between. He spoke flawless English with the local accent. Again, the indication is that his mother had been here 10 to 16 years and never even learned enough English to ponce off the British tax-payers.

      The linguistic ghettos mean that these immigrants are surrounded by friends and relatives who speak their own language. That’s why after 10 or more years they still are unemployable and can’t even ponce off us without the aid of a linguistic intermediary. There are no excuses for this woman to have been awarded millions of pounds of tax-payer money.

      • A good point Peter. The champions for multiculturalism paint a picture of all races and ethnic groups living and working together in harmony. The reality is never like that, and rather than some swirling “alphabet soup” all mixed in together the communities separate into sectors living with people from their group. The older generation (particularly the women), usually never learn the language of the host country. And consequently they rarely find a job (even if they are allowed to).

        • Monica Ali’s novel “Brick Lane” (a central London district with many Bengali and other immigrants) gives an insight into how some Muslim men positively discourage their women from learning English, as they might get ideas above their proper station in life.

  2. The mother was 21 years old when she gave birth-not exactly a child. Surely she would know that you have to feed a baby for it to thrive. She stated that the baby had nothing for 15 hours- how would she have felt had she not eaten for 15 hours? Why didn’t she call her Mother, Aunt, friend? They had the capacity to file for asylum to the U.K. from their native Sri Lanka. When and where does common sense come into play? Tragically, the already beleaguered NHS will be a few million short.

    • They are industrial kids makers. This one was the price for a long, happy life.

  3. “A judge in the UK has ruled that a refugee family from Sri Lanka will be awarded millions of pounds in damages from the National Health Service because of the death of a newborn baby. ”

    No sweat. Infidel taxpayers will finance just about everything. Like their British cousins, the Germans merrily pick up the tab for the downtrodden of the Earth:

    Tell me honestly dear GoV porch people, that I am not the only one heading for a depression.

  4. Bill Gates was right. Doesn’t matter where you’re born. If you die poor, is only your fault.
