Gates of Vienna News Feed 8/2/2018

A Spanish maritime rescue vessel saved 87 migrants off the coast of Libya, and is now trying to find a country willing to take them in. Meanwhile, the boatload of 40 migrants that was turned down by Malta has landed in Tunisia.

In other migration news, so many migrants have collected in Bosnia waiting to resume their journey north that there are concerns that a “Jungle” situation may develop, like the one in Calais.

In other news, according to the latest poll, President Trump’s approval rating has risen to 50%, which is higher than Hussein Obama’s at the same time in the latter’s presidency.

Expert: Rarely Has So Much Wealth Been Destroyed in Peacetime as Under Merkel

Economist Daniel Stelter, has savaged Angela Merkel in an article for German magazine Cicero. Stelter says that Germany’s next generation will inherit billions of euros in debt and that Merkel and her government has destroyed a record amount of wealth.

“Rarely has so much prosperity been destroyed in peacetime as by the government under Angela Merkel (… ) They are the costly legacy of 13 years of political wrong decisions,” Stelter writes in an article called ‘The Bill’.

Italy: Over 600,000 Entire Families Jobless in the South — Report

All the members of around 600,000 families in southern Italy are looking for work, almost double the 362,000 totally jobless households there in 2010, according to a report released on Wednesday by the Svimez institute.

This compares to 470,000 totally jobless families in the centre and north of Italy. Svimez warned of “growing pockets of margination and social degradation, in part due to the weakness of the public services in the periphery areas”.

CFR President: “Serious Degree of Anarchy” On the “Wild West” Internet

“The United States… has been the great preserver of international order… now we are the great disruptor…” stated Haass.

Haass continues to lament the demise of the TPP agreement and suggest that the United States under Trump is moving toward authoritarianism.

Regarding the internet Haass says “…In some areas we don’t have rules or institutions… take cyberspace, that’s the wild west… there aren’t enforcement mechanisms… there’s a serious degree of anarchy…”

Haass stated in 2006 that “Globalization thus implies that sovereignty is not only becoming weaker in reality, but that it needs to become weaker. States would be wise to weaken sovereignty in order to protect themselves…”

[Comment: Translation — “The internet is too effective at countering globalist propaganda — we have to shut this down.” Note Haass threat — “States would be wise to weaken sovereignity in order to protect themselves.”]

CNN’s David Gergen: Blood on Trump’s Hands if There’s Violence Against MSM

CNN political analyst David Gergen said on Wednesday evening that blood will be on President Donald Trump’s hands if there is any violence committed against mainstream media reporters.

Speaking to host Anderson Cooper about Trump supporters who heckled and chanted “CNN sucks” at CNN reporter Jim Acosta before Trump’s Tuesday evening rally in Tampa, Florida, Gergen accused Trump of using “Stalinist” language for calling left-wing journalists in the establishment media “enemies of the people.”

[Comment: Nope. It’s on MSMs own hands — for continually lying and fomenting sedition against Trump violence and his supporters. /classic communist tactic — “accuse the other that which you do.”]

Court Rules San Jose Police Will Go to Trial for Forcing 20 Trump Supporters to Walk Into Violent Anti-Trump Rioters, Who Beat Them After Rally

Attorney Harmeet K. Dhillon appeared on the Tucker Carlson show tonight to discuss her case against the San Jose Police Department, who Dillon claims sent 20 Trump supporters directly into a mob of violent anti-Trump rioters following a Trump rally when they should have protected them. Dhillon shared her news that the US Court of Appeals for the Ninth Circuit will not allow the police officers to seek immunity in the case.

The 20 Trump supporters who Dhillon is defending, were beaten and bloodied by the violent San Jose, CA mob who kicked in cars, carried Mexican flags, chased down and beat Trump supporters. Harmeet Dhillon claims they threw eggs and hit supporters in the backs of their heads with bags of rocks. She also claims that elderly people were attacked, while others were sucker punched as they tried to walk to their vehicles. The video shows the angry mob kicking and attacking vehicles as the Trump supporters attempted to leave the mob scene.

Dhillion told Tucker that they believe the order to send the Trump supporters into the violent mob came “from the top”.

Democratic Socialism and Mob Rule

Are you ready to vote for “Democratic Socialism” in November? Ready to surf the Blue Wave? Ready for open borders, and no more immigration law enforcement?

Portland, Oregon, is ready, big-time. Last month a “protest camp” set up by a mob calling itself “Occupy ICE” blockaded the offices of Immigration and Customs Enforcement, putting federal employees in fear of their lives. This went on for a month, because the mayor of Portland ordered police not to intervene.

Now the employees have sent the mayor a “cease and desist” letter, saying they will sue the city if they can’t get police protection from the mob. They’re tired of getting harassed and threatened and don’t see why they have to put up with it. The 14th Amendment to the Constitution—isn’t that supposed to be the law of the land?—promises all American citizens equal protection of the laws. Even immigration law enforcement personnel.

A government that will not protect its own citizens or enforce its own laws has no reason for existing. Such a government in Portland, say the ICE employees, created “a zone of terror and lawlessness” around their building.

That’s Democrat America: mob rule. Please don’t tell me that you want to vote for that.

Dinesh D’Souza Flips Narrative on Democrats: Exposes Racism, Violence, Intolerance of Left… Importance of Trump in New Movie: “Death of a Nation”

Conservative filmmaker, author, and speaker, Dinesh D’Souza has done it again. In Dinesh’s first movie, “2016: Obama’s America”, he was able to expose the truth about Barack Obama’s upbringing and how it affected his view of America. D’Souza brilliantly laid out Obama’s radical agenda for America and warned every one of the danger the man Americans knew so little about when they elected him, posed to our nation. In his next political movie, “Hillary’s America: The Secret History of The Democratic Party”, D’Souza set out to expose the dirty little secret of the Democrat Party and how throughout history, Republicans have fought against the Democrat Party to give minorities equal rights. D’Souza’s movies, directed by Gerald R. Molen, are visually stunning and filled with inconvenient facts about the Left, the dirty tactics they employ to win at all costs and the truth about their radical agenda for America.

On Friday, D’Souza’s most recent film, “Death of a Nation” will make it’ debut, and the Left is already circling the wagons in an attempt to destroy its credibility. Every American needs to see this movie and understand the truth that the media won’t tell you about the Democrat Party and the leftist agitators who support them…

Dinesh D’Souza, a filmmaker, and author of several New York Times bestsellers has debunked powerful political myths that are alive in our culture. In previous works, he has shown that the claim that the Republican Party is the party of racism is a lie. He has also shown that the notion that fascism and Nazism are ideologies of the “right,” rather than the “left,” is based on a false framing of history.

Economists Approve Statistical Model That Finds Harvard Discriminates Against Asians

Harvard University has the support of the higher education establishment, and Students for Fair Admissions has the support of statistics that the establishment would prefer to ignore.

That’s the narrative told in friend-of-the-court briefs that side with SFFA in its lawsuit against Harvard’s race-conscious admissions policy, which claims that Harvard discriminates against Asian-American applicants.

Both parties are seeking summary judgment from the U.S. District Court in Boston ahead of trial this fall. Most of the briefs recently filed by outside parties are siding with Harvard, portraying race as essential to “holistic” admissions policies designed to produce a diverse student body.

They were challenged by a group of “leading economists and econometrics scholars,” who told the court that the statistical model used by the Asian-American plaintiffs’ expert witness is “methodologically sound.”

Evil Spirits in High Places

So much of what we see going on around us borders on the unexplainable. The absolute madness that the Trump haters display is one of those things. Many of us had a strong dislike for the Obama administration but, we didn’t take it to the streets in order to undermine what we viewed as an anti-American administration.

We simply swallowed hard and complied. The day Obama left office was a time of great joy for many of us. As things begin to unfold in all of the investigations surrounding President Trump it is becoming obvious that for the previous eight years the American government has bordered on lawlessness. There is so much to be revealed I am not sure we will be able to handle it once it is fully exposed.

How could government of, by, and for the people become so diabolical? Where did America go wrong? Why do so many Americans look the other way at wrong doing simply because their “party” is in power? How have Americans become so divided?

Facebook Concealed Racially-Charged Trolling From Foreign Influence Report

When Facebook released its report on “co-ordinated inauthentic behavior,” it seems they left a few perpetrators out.

An investigation by NBC News has revealed that Facebook “excluded [its] most divisive rhetoric” when it announced the banning of 32 pages and accounts run by “bad actors” on the platform. While the social media giant did make some of the content public, it seems that some of the most controversial content was excised.

The aforementioned content was revealed by web archives of the deleted pages. The material targeted people with liberal politics, as well as those of Hispanic or African descent.

“Resisters” posted a June 27 rally event entitled “Stop Ripping Families Apart! Take over ICE HQ,” which 131 people later confirmed having attended. “Aztlan Warriors” posted disinformation about Mexican child labor during the Great Depression, intended to increase racial tensions.

Freeing People From Left-Wing Lies

The majority of Democratic voters are victims of a deliberate conspiracy by the leftist media, academia, and the Deep State to mislead them through lies of omission and commission.

A recent Pew survey shows that leftists are much more likely not to want to associate with people who don’t share their political views than are conservatives. Furthermore, leftists are more likely not to know any conservatives.

Look at the electoral map from 2016 — the blue areas are all tiny and tightly grouped.

Essentially, most leftist voters live in an intellectual bubble where the fake news media provide the propaganda, and their friends repeat, hence reinforce, the lies, making them seem credible. This even impacts the fake news reporters themselves.

Mueller Uses Manafort as a Tethered Goat to Ensnare the Lion

Judge Andrew Napolitano was a guest on Fox and Friends on July 31st, to talk about the Manafort case. What he told was explosive. Manafort’s defense is that he was investigated by the government for all these charges eight years ago and was exonerated. His attorneys are going to put on the witness stand the young lawyer who exonerated him, and that was Rod Rosenstein…

Mueller was forced to admit in court filings that his case against Paul Manafort has exactly nothing to do with his Russia mandate. The Hillary Clinton/DNC funded unverified Steele dossier accuses Manafort of directing the Trump campaign’s efforts to coordinate with the Kremlin to help Trump in the 2016 election.

The DOJ has literally turned the Russia investigation into a puzzle designed never to be solved. Link

[…]

Paul Manafort is accused of multiple financial crimes in connection with lobbying work he performed in Ukraine. The first of his two upcoming trials has begun. This is the Virginia trial and is being heard by Judge. T. S. Ellis. The former campaign manager for Donald Trump is sitting in solitary confinement 23 hours per day after being investigated by Robert Mueller regarding the bogus 2016 Russia election collusion.

Manafort was allegedly put in solitary so that other prisoners don’t “make their bones” by killing him. Never Trumpers seem to feel no shame about cheering on the American prison system for keeping Manafort locked in a windowless cement box all day when he has never been convicted.

Despite Manafort cooperating in every way with Mueller’s team of hit men, the Obama appointed DC judge has put him in jail until the DC trial in September. This happened the day after the Inspector General’s report came out. They want him to flip. Manafort served as Trump’s campaign manager for 49 days. The evidence that he tried to tamper with a witness is based on a one minute, 27 second phone call. They’ve got him on ice. No bail.

Manafort had nothing to do with Russia and the Trump campaign because there wasn’t any collusion. Yet the out-of-control former Director of the FBI and his group of “Hillary loving lawyers” are out to destroy anyone who had the temerity to offer their services to outsider candidate Donald J. Trump. Paul Manafort was a big target.

Remember the Donald Trump Jr. meeting with Russian lawyer Natalia Veselnitskaya? It was another set-up job. Loretta Lynch had Paul Manafort’s phone tapped during the meeting which he and Jared Kushner both attended.

It was Mueller’s leftist thug Andrew Weissmann who arranged for the middle of the night break in of the Manafort home by 12 FBI agents with drawn guns who stayed for hours.

Patriotism: The Secret of Trump’s Success

The driving force behind Trump’s winning for America is his powerful patriotism. Patriotism is a virtue that our politicians talk about a lot, in utterly empty ways. Many Democrats think it is a vice. The left wing of the Democratic Party mistakes it for white nationalism. Trump lives American patriotism. It is the reason he ran for president and the reason he won. He knows we are a great country.

Trump recognizes and is comfortable with power — his personal power, America’s power. He does not think power is toxic. He thinks American and presidential power is wonderful and meant to be used for our common, national good.

Our president loves to build. He used to build big apartment and hotel towers with his name on them. Now he is building up America, because he loves America. President Trump’s patriotism has these two equal parts: a strong economy and a strong military. His eye is always on the prize of jobs and security.

Patriotism overflows in his speech on achieving a quarter of 4.1% growth for the economy and the return of fallen heroes’ remains from North Korea.

The Wicked Witches of Silicon Valley

Republican leaders in Washington are finally starting to figure out what conservative publishers — big and small — have known for years: we are targets of banning and censorship based solely on our ideology. All of this is made possible by the monopolistic powers of America’s biggest liberals, all while YouTube, Facebook, and Twitter deny it on one hand, then explain why it is necessary on the other.

Instead of listing all the conservative web and news sites that have seen their traffic and business slashed in half by the liberal-anarchist-socialist hive mind — including Breitbart, American Thinker, Alex Jones, Dennis Prager, Jared Taylor — it would be easier to say that no conservative publisher knows any conservative leader who has not been censored, banned, removed, or thwarted.

Everyone. All at great financial expense.

Let’s admit this, too: the threat of censorship is causing a lot of people to pull a lot of punches. This is true especially in the area where they feel most vulnerable: black violence and denial wildly out of proportion.

Meanwhile, traditional liberal sites flourish with their newfound placement privilege in the algorithms of these information bullies. All at great profit. All by people who never figured out the difference between fact-gathering and spell-weaving.

No matter what they say or how they say it, the liberal sites are largely immune to this intellectual blackmail. How else do you suppose Salon, the Young Turks, and the hundreds of their clones stay in business?

Hamilton Paramedics Face Criminal Charges in Good Samaritan Case

The two paramedics who responded to the shooting of Yosif Al-Hasnawi last December are facing criminal charges of failing to provide the necessities of life, according to the president of the union representing them.

Mario Posteraro, president of OPSU Local 256, said he went with the pair — who have not been named — to the police station Wednesday where they were photographed and fingerprinted, before being released on a promise to appear in court at a later date.

Al-Hasnawi, 19, died in hospital after being shot Dec. 2, 2017, when he tried to stop two men from harassing an older man.

Posteraro, who called the charges against paramedics for on-duty work “unprecedented,” declined to immediately provide the court appearance date.

Yosif Al-Hasnawi’s father, Majed Al-Hasnawi, also confirmed the family was notified of criminal charges Wednesday and they were meeting with police Thursday.

The family is also suing police, paramedics, St. Joseph’s Hospital for $10 million, alleging negligence…

4 Lessons We Need to Learn From the Tommy Robinson Case

Tommy Robinson is free, for now.

The Lord Chief Justice decided Tommy was improperly tried, improperly convicted, improperly sentenced and improperly treated in prison. For many of us watching around the world, the decision feels like a little victory.

Now the case will be re-heard under a new judge — the third judge for this case — and yet another decision will be made.

If I were a betting woman I’d say Tommy will be found guilty of contempt of court to spare the blushes of the Establishment, but will have served sufficient time in HMP Onley under duress to be allowed to walk free.

France, The Nazis, And Gun Control

In 1935, French prime minister Pierre Laval, who later served in the Vichy government during the Nazis’ four-year occupation of France, commanded French citizens to surrender their firearms. Laval and France’s ruling parties feared social revolution and banned “war” weapons, instituting strict gun registration policies. They believed that repressive limits on civilian gun ownership were necessary at a time of Depression-sparked unrest and ongoing conflicts among various political factions. Strict time limits for firearms registration and harsh penalties for noncompliance, including forfeiture, fines, and imprisonment, were put in place. Laval’s government did not foresee the impact these restrictive measures would have on a Nazi-conquered France just five years later, when firearms surrender would be required under threat of death.

In Gun Control in Nazi-Occupied France: Tyranny and Resistance, attorney Stephen P. Halbrook explores the impact and efficacy of gun control measures on Wehrmacht-controlled France and how these measures hindered the French Resistance’s fight against Nazi tyranny. The author asserts that Laval’s 1935 gun control efforts left the French people vulnerable to the Nazi invaders and ill equipped to deal with the Nazi invasion of 1940, plus simplified the Nazi efforts to confiscate firearms and impede a French resistance.

In 1940, when the Vichy government negotiated an armistice with Germany after the successful German blitzkrieg, Laval’s pre-war firearms registration proved to be a boon to Nazi disarmament efforts. Halbrook explains that Hitler based his occupation model on the historic premise that conquerors who allowed subjugated populations to possess arms were ultimately defeated. So, when he rose to power in 1933 Germany, Hitler disarmed all “enemies of the state,” including all Jews.

B Upendran | HENB | Mangaluru | Aug 2, 2018:: In a case of moral policing, a gang of eight to ten Muslim men attacked a man from Hindu community in Bantwal here on Sunday afternoon.

Police said the victim Suresh, a resident of Farangipete has been admitted to the government hospital in Puttur.

According to police, around 3 pm on July 29th, the gang saw Suresh talking to a burkha-clad woman near the Farangipete bus stand and took offence to it. Police said Suresh, who was en route to Mangaluru from Bantwal, bumped into the woman he was acquainted with. Hence, he stopped by and started a conversation with her.

After the chat, as turned on the car and moved ahead, but the gang waylaid him and launched an attack in addition to hurling abuses for talking to the Muslim woman.

Police from Bantwal Rural station have recorded the statement of Suresh and registered a case under IPC Sections 144, 323, 504 r/w 149.

Police said that they had definite information on the identity of the accused and they arrested the accused immediately.

Sources said that the brother of the victim is also working in Mangaluru Police and the police took the action hectically.

Though the victim Suresh was released from Hospital later, police did not divulge about the arrested persons on the incident. Further Police action was not disclosed in details when our HENB Mangaluru representative wanted to know this matter from police authority.

When Bantwal Rural Police Station Sub Inspector Prasanna M S (Mob. 9480805368) was contacted over telephone, he told HENB, six persons were arrested from the spot and produced to the court of law whereform the accused got bail by court order in the very next day. “The scuffle was not a big at all. Police reached the spot within couple of minutes and took strong action,” Prasanna told HENB.

But, think the situation…. One Muslim man was thrashed by some Hindu young men as the Muslim man talked with a Hindu girl. And that was poured in the media and protests raised from Muslim society. Just imagine.

But, as the situation is quite opposite, now no pseudo-secular or media channel will come out to support the victim, as he is Hindu. Media, Police, intellectuals just likely to deny, ignore or to suppress it. If same thing would have happened with a Muslim or Christian man, then there would have been lot of cry about ‘increasing intolerance’, ‘moral policing by Hindus’, ‘radicalHindu groups’, ‘minorities in danger’ and so on.

War is a Racket: After 17 Years and Billions Wasted, US Seeks Peace With Taliban

Afghanistan, long acknowledged to be America’s “forgotten war”, has finally returned to the news of late. But this time, in a shocking twist on the now 17-year long conflict, the US is negotiating with the Taliban.

Perhaps this is why the mainstream media has by and large not given this bombshell story the coverage it deserves? Or do the major networks feel the American public has long ago stopped paying attention and will therefore yawn at any headlines containing the words ‘US Troops/Afghanistan’?

As Daniel McAdams explains, last week US State Department officials met with Taliban leaders in Qatar. At the request of the Taliban, the US-backed Afghan government was not invited. The officials discussed ceasefires and an end to the war.

Meanwhile, the US inspector general charged with monitoring US spending on Afghanistan reconstruction has reported that since 2008, the US has completely wasted at the least $15.5 billion. He believes that’s just the tip of the iceberg, though.

On Sunday, Reuters had this report on the latest surprising developments:

Whistleblower Reveals Google’s Plans for Censored Search in China

The search engine would filter sites like Wikipedia and information about topics like freedom of speech

Google is reportedly planning to relaunch its search engine in China, complete with censored results to meet the demands of the Chinese government. The company originally shut down its Chinese search engine in 2010, citing government attempts to “limit free speech on the web.” But according to a report from The Intercept, the US tech giant now wants to return to the world’s biggest single market for internet users.

According to internal documents provided to The Intercept by a whistleblower, Google has been developing a censored version of its search engine under the codename “Dragonfly” since the beginning of 2017. The search engine is being built as an Android mobile app and will reportedly “blacklist sensitive queries” and filter out all websites blocked by China’s web censors (including Wikipedia and BBC News). The censorship will extend to Google’s image search, spell check, and suggested search features.

The web is heavily censored in China, with the country’s so-called Great Firewall stopping citizens from accessing many sites. Information on topics like religion, police brutality, freedom of speech, and democracy are heavily filtered, while specific search topics (like the 1989 Tiananmen Square protests and Taiwanese independence) are censored completely. Advocacy groups report that censorship in the country has increased under President Xi Jinping, extending beyond the web to social media and chat apps.

The whistleblower who spoke to The Intercept said they did so because they were “against large companies and governments collaborating in the oppression of their people.” They also suggested that “what is done in China will become a template for many other nations.”

South Africa Moves to Change Constitution to Legalize Theft of White Property

If you want to take a glimpse into the future of our brave new multicultural world, i.e. what is going to happen to any country formerly dominated by “whitey”, look no further than South Africa. Also, I would strongly recommend you to watch Lauren Southern’s documentary Farmlands, it will red-pill you forever (the link’s at the bottom of the article).

Moving along with today’s news story, South African whites, also known as Boers, are currently facing murder, rape and robbery on an industrial scale. Speaking of murder rates, white South African farmers are going to become extinct in a few years. The thing is, being a farmer in South Africa is among the most dangerous jobs in the world, as they’re constantly murdered and robbed by gangs of feral blacks. There’s no other way to put it. And keep in mind that we’re working with “guesstimates” here, because South Africa’s government refuses to keep track of the murders, and conceals and buries the statistics and so on and so forth; also, political leaders were filmed singing genocidal songs, while demonizing the white minority, Christian Afrikaners that is.

Since the early 1990’s, when the Boers committed national-suicide as they voted to surrender power to blacks, white-owned farm murders exploded, with estimates varying between 2000 and 4000 since. There are approximately 4.5 million whites in South Africa by the way, or 9 percent of the population.

In the same period of time, there were more than 15,000 farm attacks. As per 2017 statistics, there was one farm attack per day on average, and that’s the number reported by the South African media. White South African farmers are more likely to be killed than US soldiers serving in Afghanistan or Iraq. According to a former anti apartheid activist, Genocide Watch chief Gregory Stanton respectively, who visited South Africa in 2012, the country is showing signs that precede genocide:

“Things of this sort are what I have seen before in other genocides,” he said of the murdered white farmers. “This is what has happened in Burundi, it’s what happened in Rwanda. It has happened in many other places in the world.”

And now, South African President Cyril Ramaphosa has asked the ruling African National Congress to initiate a procedure to create a new amendment in the Constitution, which would pave the way for white-owned land grabs without compensation.

Here’s from a BBC report:…

“A delegation consisting of some 30 South African farming families arrived in Russia’s farm belt Stavropol Region last month, asking the local authorities to consider resettling up to 15,000 Boers. Moving “is a matter of life and death” for them the head of the delegation told the media.”

If you ask me, as the situation spirals out of control, eventually the whites will completely flee South Africa, the economy will go bust, and they will end up like every other African nation. Sorry, but that’s the truth. This is the final stretch for the world that helped end apartheid. The circle is complete: Whites in South Africa are now the victims of racism, but the outcry from the liberals is missing.

Whether black people like it or not, the white settlers created South Africa and shaped it into Africa’s jewel in the crown. South Africa was a first world country under apartheid, and they even had their own space program and atomic weapons. Getting rid of whites, one way or another, is simply suicide. It will be a depressing show to watch, and it will end in tears for everyone.

And it’s coming to us:

New Hampshire is 94% white. It is now trying to figure out how to change that. t.co/aVB7YkkKFD

Meet China’s “Secret” Space Control Listening Base in Argentina Now Alarming US Officials

A recent New York Times piece has sounded the alarm over what Washington perceives as China’s “expanding reach into Latin America,” related to a space mission control center located in the heart of the Patagonia region of Argentina.

It begins with an eerily beautiful description of an imposing structure, guarded by Chinese military personnel, unexpectedly rising out of Patagonian desert:

The giant antenna rises from the desert floor like an apparition, a gleaming metal tower jutting 16 stories above an endless wind-whipped stretch of Patagonia. The 450-ton device, with its hulking dish embracing the open skies, is the centerpiece of a $50 million satellite and space mission control station built by the Chinese military. The station began operating in March, playing a pivotal role in China’s audacious expedition to the far side of the moon — an endeavor that Argentine officials say they are elated to support…

Perhaps, in what would be a nightmare scenario for Western officials who’ve been caught off guard, China has indeed already staked out a new massive intelligence-collecting outpost south of America’s border under the guise of space exploration.

“We have created refugee shelters for tens of thousands of people, but there are hundreds of thousands of illegal migrants in our country. This has heavily impaired the security situation. They include terrorists, criminals, and human traffickers who do not care about human rights. It’s horrible.” — Libyan leader Fayez al-Sarraj.

Society Under Siege From Maoist Totalitarians

NYU professor Michael Rectenwald warns that western civilization is under siege from Maoist totalitarians and that we are on the verge of “completely losing our culture.”

In a blistering Facebook post, Rectenwald provided perhaps the most succinct summary of the threat facing the west ever written.

“We’re undergoing a Maoist-like Cultural Revolution — with the power of the corporate mass media, corporate social media, the academy, most of corporate America, the deep state, the shadow government, and most of the legal apparatuses behind it,” wrote the professor, adding that, “Anti-western, anti-individual, anti-Christian, anti-liberty monsters are ravaging our cultural legacies as well as our contemporary arts and letters.”

“Our entire culture is under siege and undergoing an utter and relentless social justice dismantling,” warned Rectenwald. “Leftist totalitarianism is running amok. We’re on the precipice of completely losing our culture, the benefits of western civilization, and the entire legacy of western civilizational history.”

He ended the post by asserting, “A major resurgence and counter attack is necessary and soon.” In a follow up post, the professor doubled down on his warning, remarking, “How dare the left have pretensions of moral superiority. Leftists in power have mass-murdered and imprisoned more people than any other contingent in political history. Don’t come around here acting morally superior to me or anyone else, you monsters.”

The View: Abortion Not One of ‘Most Important Issues’ For Followers of Jesus

Followers of Jesus should agree to disagree on abortion and focus on the more important biblical issues of climate change, care for the poor, and immigration, said “pro-life” Democrat Sunny Hostin on The View Tuesday.

Hostin, co-host of the View, said it is time for Democrats to realize “there’s no moral party” and so Republicans should not have the corner on setting the moral objectives for the country.

“If you really are looking at Jesus’ words, the most important things to him were justice and mercy, so real biblical sort of perspectives are saving the earth, welcoming strangers, taking care of the poor,” she said.

  1. “Google is reportedly planning to relaunch its search engine in China, complete with censored results to meet the demands of the Chinese government.”

    Google are either corporate cowards or sold out to a totalitarian regime for the sake of profit.

    • How about both? They don’t have their corporate motto anymore: “don’t be evil” – which in itself showed their deep ignorance of communication skills. “Be a force for good” can at least do no harm, even if it’s not their real reason for being. But a “don’t be” is merely translated by the human brain as a command minus the negative – i.e., “be evil”…

      They’ve shown this facility for translation in a number of studies. Thus, if you want your kid to succeed at whatever task you’ve allotted him, it is the wise parent who says “when you finish your homework you may watch TV” – rather than “you can’t watch TV until you’ve done your homework”…the first communication is phrased as a reward; the second as a type of deprivation.

      • You are a smart lady !
        You’re also a mother/parent. So, grace building on your nature, the ‘ladies’ on The View have no hope in Hades of competing with you.

        How many children does Whoopi have, or those other ‘ladies’? (Natural, not adopted? [Adopted will do, though.])

        You’d make mince-meat of them, Dymphna. They’d run screaming from the dais. Or, screaming AT _you_, they’d chase you from the building, hurling curses, as Judge Janine Pirro experienced !

        Stay safe in the Schloss ! With us. Don’t accept any invites from the View.

        • I’ve never seen The View. I have noticed them on my sidebar on YuToob, but it appeared they could have more aptly been designated,”Cats Who Claw” – always seemed to be fighting about something.

          Is there a similar program for men, something like “Disputin’ Dudes”? Somehow I don’t think heterosexual men would sign up for it…though if you give enough whiskey to a group of Irishmen, they’d all transmogrify into Dennis the Downshouter in short order, followed by punching until they passed out.

          Too bad those View-wimmen don’t imbibe. I’d have to drink to watch ’em.

  2. “A Spanish maritime rescue vessel saved 87 migrants off the coast of Libya, and is now trying to find a country willing to take them in. ”
    How about Libya?
