Gates of Vienna News Feed 10/16/2018

Italian Interior Minister Matteo Salvini expressed outrage after French gendarmes dropped off two migrant men in a forest on the Italian side of the border. The French government said the incident was a mistake, but Mr. Salvini was skeptical.

In other news, a new tranche of 3,000 Honduran migrants is attempting to make its way north to the border of the United States.

Trump is Right: The Federal Reserve is Crazy and Here Are 101 Reasons Why it Should be Shut Down

Donald Trump just made one of the most brilliant moves of his entire presidency. By accusing the Federal Reserve of “going loco”, he is placing the blame for the coming stock market crash and horrifying economic downturn squarely where it belongs, and he is firing up millions of true conservatives among his base at the same time. For many, many years, a lot of us have been trying to educate the American people about the deeply insidious Federal Reserve system. As Ron Paul once so astutely observed, it is actually about as “federal” as Federal Express is. The Federal Reserve is an unelected cabal of central bankers that is running our economy into the ground, and the only way we are going to fix our long-term economic and financial problems is if we abolish it. So for those of us that understand these things, it is extremely exciting to hear President Trump use language such as this… President Donald Trump knocked the Federal Reserve for continuing to raise interest rates despite some recent market turbulence.

“I think the Fed is making a mistake. They are so tight. I think the Fed has gone crazy,” the president said after walking off Air Force One in Erie, Pennsylvania for a rally.

That may be one of the greatest things that Donald Trump has ever said.

And if Trump feels like his base is really responding to this sort of rhetoric, he may start using it as a campaign tactic.

Could you imagine thousands upon thousands of supporters chanting “End the Fed” at Trump rallies leading up to the 2020 election?

That would definitely be a beautiful thing.

Without a doubt, the Federal Reserve has created “the everything bubble”, and when it bursts the economic pain is going to be off the charts.

Of course the left is going to want to blame Trump, and so Trump is being very smart by pointing a finger at the Fed for aggressively raising rates at a time when the U.S. economy is already slowing down.

And you know what? CNBC’s Jim Cramer actually agrees with Trump…

“I Think I Can Beat Her”: Lindsey Graham Taking DNA Test to Challenge Elizabeth Warren

Senator Lindsey Graham (R-SC) seems to have a newfound “Trumpian” swagger of late, all starting with his fiery speech during Justice Kavanaugh’s confirmation — and culminating in several recent clips of the South Carolina Senator giving Democrats what for.

On Tuesday, Graham “2.0” told Fox & Friends that he plans to take a DNA test to see if he has more Native American DNA than Senator Elizabeth Warren (D-MA). Warren has claimed to be Native American for decades — and was identified by Harvard Law as a “woman of color” — which promoted her as a diversity hire with a “minority background,” prompting Trump to refer to her as “Pocahontas.”

“I’m going to take a DNA test,” said Graham, adding: “I’ve been told my grandmother was part Cherokee Indian. It may all just be talk.”

4Chan Sparks Mass Triggering With NPC Meme; Twitter Responds With Ban Hammer

The “weaponized autists” at 4Chan have done it again, because they can; a new meme suggesting that liberals are soulless idiots who can’t think for themselves has gone viral. The concept compares Democrats to “nonplayable characters,” or NPCs — the recurring characters in video games with repetitive lines and limited knowledge. Lack of an “inner voice” is a dead giveaway that someone may be an NPC.

An Analysis of the “National Strategy for Counterterrorism”

By Clare M. Lopez

[…]

Where the Strategy falls especially short, however, is in the continued failure to name, identify, and describe the primary global enemy we face and that enemy’s threat doctrine. We are not fighting terrorism. We fight to defend the U.S. Constitution and to live free of Islamic Law (shariah), the universal imposition of which by means of jihad to establish a global Islamic State is the openly stated goal of all Islamic authorities and terrorists alike. This objective is not “extreme,” or “radical” but mainstream, normative, orthodox Islamic doctrine, taught to Muslim children in America and around the world beginning in the first grade.

Whereas this Strategy emphasizes violent enemy action throughout the document, it is rather in fact the non-violent subversion of civilization jihad that is the far greater threat to U.S. national security as well as Western Civilization overall. There are some vague references to “a hateful ideology” and a “violent extremist ideology” that somehow never get around to explaining exactly what that “ideology” is: it is shariah, Islamic Law, which is the all-encompassing, binding, immutable set of commandments that is obligatory for every Muslim to obey. Jihad, whether the violent kind or the subversive civilization kind, is a binding commandment of the Islamic faith. But nowhere in this National Strategy is that reality ever stated or explained. …

Our recommendations to improve this National Strategy for Counterterrorism begin with a reversal of the Great Purge, under which all accurate spoken and written articulation of the Islamic Movement threat doctrine in official U.S. government discourse was methodically removed. An entire generation of diplomatic, intelligence, national security, and military intelligence officials has risen to present rank bereft of an accurate understanding of the Islamic Movement, its doctrine, history, law, or scripture. This situation must be reversed on an urgent basis or America will become an Islamic State under rule of shariah.

It is our conviction that briefing, education, and training efforts should be focused at the local and state level right now, although to the extent that federal agencies and organizations are open to re-installing the knowledgeable instructors removed during the Great Purge, they should be accommodated.

Official U.S. government reliance on advice, guidance, and support from Islamic Movement operatives, whether domestic or foreign, must end. Instead, we should turn to non-Muslim experts in counterinsurgency, counterintelligence, Islamic Law, the Muslim Brotherhood, and other elements of the Islamic Movement, for the educational efforts so critical to arousing our collective national security-mindedness.

The Center for Security Policy and our colleagues in the counterjihad fight stand ready to offer this expertise.

Chaos in the Streets: The Civil Unrest That So Many Have Been Predicting is Coming to America is Now Here

Nobody should want to see Americans beating the daylights out of other Americans in our city streets, but it is starting to happen with alarming regularity. Americans have become more radicalized politically than ever before, and there is certainly nothing wrong with being passionate about what you believe, but way too often these very strong feelings are leading to outbursts of anger and violence. The “left” hates the “right” and the “right” hates the “left”, and the mainstream media and many of our leading politicians are having a good old time stirring the pot on a continual basis. It is almost as if they actually want violence to happen. For a very long time, many of us have been warning that civil unrest is coming to America, and now it is here. If you doubt this, please consider what just went down in Portland on Saturday night…

Elizabeth Warren Savaged on Social Media as DNA Gambit Backfires; Cherokee Nation Furious

Update: The Cherokee Nation has issued a statement slamming Warren for her “continued claims of tribal heritage.”

“A DNA test is useless to determine tribal citizenship. Current DNA tests do not even distinguish whether a person’s ancestors were indigenous to North or South America. Sovereign tribal nations set their own legal requirements for citizenship, and while DNA tests can be used to determine lineage, such as paternity to an individual, it is not evidence for tribal affiliation. Using a DNA test to lay claim to any connection to the Cherokee Nation or any tribal nation, even vaguely, is inappropriate and wrong. It makes a mockery out of DNA tests and its legitimate uses while also dishonoring legitimate tribal governments and their citizens, who ancestors are well documented and whose heritage is prove. Senator Warren is undermining tribal interests with her continued claims of tribal heritage.”

— Cherokee Nation Secretary of State Chuck Hoskin, Jr.

Elizabeth Warren just owned herself after releasing a DNA test confirming that she’s as little as 1/1024th Native American — about half the percentage of the average white person.

Epstein: ‘Google is the Most Powerful Mind-Control Engine Ever Created’

Psychologist Dr. Robert Epstein argued that Google is the “most powerful mind-control engine ever created” in an interview with Breitbart News Tonight on SiriusXM.

Dr. Robert Epstein appeared on Breitbart News Tonight this week to discuss his appearance in the new documentary, The Creepy Line, which focuses on overreach and censorship by social media giants like Facebook and Google.

“In a piece I published in US News and World Report, I identified Google as the biggest censor that has ever existed in human history. And I identified nine types of censorship in which this company engages,” Epstein said, referring to an internal Google document published by Breitbart News. “Here, they are confirming that they are aware that they are doing this.”

“What my research has shown beyond any doubt is that the search engine is the most powerful mind-control machine that’s ever been invented in the history of humankind,” he said. “We are able to shift thinking and opinions and voting preferences and shift thinking about almost anything. We are producing enormous changes in people without them being aware that they are being manipulated.”

“Take that another step further and now you have the Google home device which they are trying to get people to put in every room in their house,” Epstein continued. “The Google home device, like Amazon’s Alexa, gives you the answer to a question. That produces enormous shifts as well in people’s thinking and behavior.”

Fake Outrage: Dems Cut a Deal So They Could Go Home and Campaign

Democrats agree to confirmations of 15 Trump judges

In exchange, Dems facing reelection can go home to campaign.

Senate Democrats accepted an offer from Senate Republicans to confirm 15 lifetime federal judges on Thursday in exchange for the ability to go into recess through the midterms so endangered Democrats can campaign.

The calculation by Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer and his caucus was simple: That Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.) would be able to confirm roughly 15 judges if he kept the Senate in session for the next few weeks anyway. So Democrats OK’d an offer to confirm three Circuit Court judges and 12 Circuit Court judges as the price to pay to go home for election season.

Leftist Ideologues Call for the Abolition of White Men

“Most black people hate white people. This hate, also promoted by mainstream media, academia and Hollywood, is really a hatred of men, of Christianity, of American freedom, law and order. Whites, especially straight, white, conservative, Christian men of power, tend to hold these values and stand in the way of socialism, globalism and moral decay.” —Black American, Reverend Jesse Lee Peterson

America has gone from inclusion to division after eight years of President Obama. Civil society has been hijacked! Today we are more divided than we were before Barack Hussein Obama became President in 2008. Obama’s former National Security Advisor, Susan Rice told college graduates there are too many whites in key government posts. Maybe she’s right, but black Americans make up only 12.3 percent of our population, yet minorities hold 35.3 of federal government jobs. Black employees represented 18.1 percent (343,663) of the permanent Federal Workforce as of September 30, 2014, four years ago.

The beginning of the Revolution may be upon us, France is lost, Great Britain is lost, Sweden is lost, Germany is lost…truly the Revolution is here, and … what we’re seeing is the same thing that happened in years prior to the 1917 Russian Revolution. But first comes the racial hatred of white Europeans which is becoming increasingly common in universities and main stream media. It has now taken center stage in America.

White men are targets and are hated and profaned by mass media and social outlets, and that same media claims white men are privileged. Yet, white men have been rejected in order to allow affirmative action to our black American brothers, some of whom were not as qualified as the whites applying for the same universities or positions. Affirmative action has been around since 1961. Misandry is the hatred of men, and today especially of white men. Why? Because it was white Europeans and their descendants who built this nation and the establishment socialists want it destroyed…

Nelson Mandela is held up as an icon of justice, equality, and the peaceful struggle for righteousness. Hollywood and the entire left have portrayed Mandela as a hero for blacks. The problem with this image, however, is that it is entirely false. His record demonstrates beyond a shadow of a doubt that Mandela was not a peace-loving Freedom fighter, but a communist revolutionary who reveled in violence, promoted white genocide, and facilitated the Marxist subversion of South Africa. The armed struggle Mandela led was not to give every South African an equal opportunity to enjoy the fruits of liberty. It was a will-to-power struggle to give the Communists dominion over the country. Link

Nelson Mandela is in the center, with his wife Winnie to the left and then head of the South African Communist Party (SACP), Marxist-Leninist KGB Colonel, Joe Slovo. Mandela was the head of the Marxist African National Congress (AFN). Communism was, and remains, the animating ideology of the ANC. That makes it the enduring tragedy of South Africa. The ANC, however, were no freedom fighters.

Spear of the Nation is their military wing, and the members have pledged themselves to “kill the whites” in their often-sung anthem. Mandela had been out of prison for about two years in September 1992 when, fist clenched in the “black power” salute, he was filmed singing the anthem with a number of his comrades. Interestingly, but not ironically, as Mandela and others repeated the refrain about killing Boer farmers, there was a white Soviet trained terrorist at his side with the communist clenched fist.

Unremembered by the world is the reason why Nelson Mandela was arrested, tried, and served years in prison. He was in prison for terrorism and acts of violence and he did not even attempt to deny the charges. Mandela was proud of his extremely violent past and believed, as true communists do, that violent revolution is the only path to change…

Alex Newman, foreign correspondent for the New American Magazine wrote, “In stark contrast to the myth of Mandela as peaceful, his writings glorify violence and bloodshed with ghoulish glee, writing that one day soon, “the sweet air will smell of gunfire, elegant buildings will crash down and streets will be splashed with blood.”

Marine Colonel Infantry Officer Shreds Radical Democrat Abigail Spanberger for Teaching at ‘Terror High’ In Ad

Retired Marine Colonel Infantry Officer Phillip Amiss slams Democrat congressional candidate in Virginia Abigail Spanberger for teaching at a high school that produced terrorists, saying she “failed” the “test” of what it takes to protect America’s national security.

“With 23 years as a Marine Colonel Infantry Officer, I know what it takes to keep America safe,” Amiss says in the new ad from Congressional Leadership Fund (CLF) hitting airwaves on Tuesday in Virginia’s seventh congressional district. “Abigail Spanberger fails that test.”…

Col. Amiss, after his opening remarks in the ad, rips the Democrat for having “no business teaching at an Islamic school that was a terrorist breeding ground” while the text “Terror High” flashes on screen. Breitbart News has reported extensively on Spanberger’s connections to this Islamic school that produced multiple actual terrorists.

“And Spanberger was wrong to support the Iranian deal, giving billions to the leading sponsor of terrorism made no sense but Spanberger she supported the Iranian deal anyway,” Col. Amiss says in the CLF ad. “Abigail Spanberger does not get my vote.”

More of the Unrelenting Data Collection Toward Totalitarian Rule

We have almost reached the point where the country can be referred to as “totalitarian” in accordance with the definition provided. Incrementally, it creeps forward: the “soft” tyranny. Curing, refining itself, and hardening, there will be a point of no return that is reached…a point where it has metastasized until it is both all encompassing and ubiquitous.

The problem is twofold: the incremental spread as mentioned, and the complacency and inability of people to recognize it for what it is. Someone posted a comment recently with a paragraph from Solzhenitsyn’s “Gulag Archipelago” where the author regretfully lamented the complacency displayed by the Russians as the country turned Communist overnight. His regret was that the citizenry could have stopped it with hatchets and pitchforks at that point if they had acted and been of one accord. I have recommended it as a “must read,” and strongly advise you to consider it as a “window” to what is happening in the U.S.

Two articles surfaced this week that are astonishing: they show the surveillance and data-collection “culture” that is being inflicted upon us, dulling our already stultified public into vapidity and inaction by desensitization. This latter term: the outrage of yesterday becomes the “accepted” and commonplace of today, and even further/worse tomorrow. Paradigm shift.

First, one written by Betsy Mikel entitled “Walmart just made an announcement that may make you never want to shop there again,” published on 10/9/18 by Inc. Here is an excerpt:

Walmart is interested in what’s going on in your body while you shop.

The company wants to collect this data in a particularly creepy way: through the handles of their shopping carts. Walmart recently submitted a patent to the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office called “System and Method for a Biometric Feedback Cart Handle,” CBInsights reports.

These innovative shopping cart handles would collect your biometric data, meaning your stress level, your body temperature, and heart rate — all while you’re strolling through the aisles of your local store, filling your cart with Walmart’s everyday low-priced items.

The article proceeds to explain Walmart’s “spin” on it is to provide a way to “check on a customer with a physical problem.”

Since when has Walmart ever been concerned about anyone’s physical well-being? Isn’t this the company that settled out of court for millions to pay for stolen labor time and breaks from employees? Isn’t this the same Walmart that twenty years ago put small stores in to break local competitors (Mom and Pop stores) in small towns…and when they went belly up, closed their small Walmarts and “plopped” a Super-Walmart down in the center of where five small ones used to be? Then all the little serfs could come from miles around to service the monolith with their play money, as the local economies of the small towns died, right? Worse. Being a “too big to fail” type of business, they’re deep in bed with the governments, federal and state. Simple data collection “for your own safety and well-being,” right?

Paul G. Allen, Microsoft’s Co-Founder, Is Dead at 65

Paul G. Allen, the co-founder of Microsoft who helped usher in the personal computing revolution and then channeled his enormous fortune into transforming Seattle into a cultural destination, died on Monday in Seattle. He was 65.

The cause was complications of non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma, his family said in a statement.

The disease recurred recently after having been in remission for years. He left Microsoft in the early 1980s, after the cancer first appeared, and, using his enormous wealth, went on to make a powerful impact on Seattle life through his philanthropy and his ownership of the N.F.L. team there, ensuring that it would remain in the city.

Trump Haters’ Real Goal for All the Riots is the Elimination of the Electoral College

Many seem bewildered by the anti-Trump riots and demonstrations that have covered the nation since the 2016 election. And many keep trying to find a reasonable response. Give it up. You can’t reason with them with words.

Here is my take. They know full well that they aren’t going to overturn the election. These privately funded forces are being used to create pressure to destroy the Electoral College so they won’t have to deal with it next election. This is how the Left operates. Make a big deal over here to force the hidden agenda over there. The plan is to make enough trouble that Congress will move to abolish the EC to get some peace.

For clues on who is behind this effort one only has to watch to see which member of Congress would propose such action. The answer, of course, was California Senator Barbara Boxer. It only took a week after the election for her to come to the rescue of the broken and distraught Left.

The danger is real and gaining ground. But it didn’t start with the 2016 election result. A campaign to eliminate the Electoral College and “let the people elect the president,” has been gaining steam for several years. A group called “National Popular Vote Interstate Compact,” started in 2006, has won commitments from eleven states to award their electoral votes to the winner of the popular vote. These include Maryland, New Jersey, Illinois, Rhode Island, Vermont, Washington, Massachusetts, California, New York, Hawaii, the District of Columbia and Connecticut. These states control 172 electoral votes. They only need states representing 98 more electoral votes to join and the Electoral College will be a thing of the past. Meanwhile, such legislation is under consideration in Missouri, Oklahoma, and Arizona, to name a few.

When a state passes legislation to join the National Popular Vote Interstate Compact, it pledges that all of that state’s electoral votes will be given to whichever presidential candidate wins the popular vote nationwide. These bills will take effect only when states with a majority of the electoral votes have passed similar legislation. States with electoral votes totaling 270 of the 538 electoral votes would have to pass NPV bills before the compact kicks in and any state’s bill could take effect.

As usual, it’s easy to get people to join this cause — yet another sound bite based on emotion rather than knowledge or logic. “Let the people decide.” “It’s the American way.” “It’s Democracy at work.” Yep, that’s why America was never set up as a democracy. Here’s another sound bite for you — “Democracy is a lynch mob.” Here’s another one — “Democracy is three wolves and a sheep voting on what to have for lunch.” Majority rule violates the rights of minorities. It’s not a good thing. Get the picture?

Video Shows ‘ANTIFA Started the Fight’ In NYC, But NYPD Looks to Charge 9 Proud Boys

There appears to be five masked antifa members present, though several fled immediately as the violence broke out

Gavin McInnes says newly released surveillance video shows it was “antifa who started the fight” Friday night in New York City between masked antifa and the Proud Boys.

The video released by the NYPD on Monday shows a group of masked suspected antifa approaching towards the Proud Boys as they were leaving a speech put on by McInnes and one suspected antifa member can be seen throwing what may be a bottle at the Proud Boys before a fight breaks out.

While throwing a “bottle” at someone might not seem like a huge deal, it is an initiation of violence and antifa are well known for bottling their own waste to use as a weapon.

Such an attack happened earlier this month to journalist and filmmaker Ford Fischer:

Scientists Freak Out Over Pandemic Potential of Genetically Engineered Smallpox

Following the release of a paper earlier this year which describes how researchers stitched together segments of DNA in order to revive horsepox — a previously eradicated virus, scientists have been flipping out over the possibility that bad actors may use the study as a blueprint to revive smallpox.

The disease killed an estimated 300 million people before the World Health Organization deemed it eradicated following a long vaccination campaign. Thus, the publication of a method for reviving a closely related disease has understandably raised some red flags within the scientific community, reports futurism.com.

Critics argue that the paper not only demonstrates that you can synthesize a deadly pathogen for what Science reported was about US$100,000 in lab expenses, but even provides a slightly-too-detailed-for-comfort overview of how to do it.

Some of the horsepox scientists’ coworkers are still pretty upset about this. PLOS One’s sister Journal, PLOS Pathogens, just published three opinion pieces about the whole flap, as well as a rebuttal by the Canadian professors.

Overall, everyone’s pretty polite. But you get the sense that microbiologists are really, really worried about someone reviving smallpox. — futurism.com

Prior to its eradication, smallpox was primarily spread by direct and fairly prolonged face-to-face contact between people. Once the first sores appeared in the mouth and throat (the early rash stage), they were contagious until the last smallpox scab fell off. According to the CDC, “these scabs and the fluid found in the patient’s sores also contained the variola virus. The virus can spread through these materials or through the objects contaminated by them, such as bedding or clothing. People who cared for smallpox patients and washed their bedding or clothing had to wear gloves and take care to not get infected.”

Delingpole: Never Mind ‘Green GB Week’, Theresa. Where is Our Brexit?

Here are some of the bold, exciting initiatives Theresa May’s government has proposed recently in order to stave off the threat of Jeremy Corbyn and his raging Communists:

  • NHS doctors to provide old people with free cookery lessons/dance classes to stop them feeling lonely.
  • Calling the elderly rude names to be made a “hate crime”.
  • “Austerity” to be ended by hiking the tax bills of the “rich”.

But my favourite so far has got to be the one launched yesterday by Greg Clark, Secretary of State for Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy. It’s called Green GB Week.

To get an idea what an amazing job it has done to revitalise the Conservative base, here are some of the comments below a piece Clark published in the former shires Tory journal the Daily Telegraph, headlined “It’s time to reap the benefits of a low carbon economy”.

This article is utter rubbish by an over promoted MP with no real knowledge of what is involved. His claim about 50% of our energy from low carbon sources is nonsense and obviously came from a civil servant manipulating data which is false.

and

Most of the world now, and a lot of people here, get the fact that the global warming scare is a scam designed to transfer wealth from the taxpayers of rich nations into the pockets of hucksters and charlatans.

And politicians like you are their useful idiots. …

Does this government have any idea, any idea, how much it is hated?

In the two years since Britain voted Brexit, about the only thing that Theresa and her crew have done which is useful and good is to remind us, day in, day out, of the establishment arrogance, the sclerosis, the spinelessness, the creeping bureaucracy, the high level disdain for ordinary people which serve so well to remind us precisely what we were voting against in that EU Referendum two years ago.

By heavens, the dreadful woman must go — and take all her Remainer cabinet with her. I’m not sure how much longer any of us can take it.

F-16 Jets Explode After Mechanic Fires Cannon From Another Parked Jet in Bizarre Accident

An almost unbelievable accident occurred at a Belgian military air base days ago which involved one F-16 jet destroying two others — all while stationary on the ground.

Stunning photos of the aftermath show a completely destroyed Belgian Air Force F-16 fighter and another severely damaged one after a third fired its M61A1 Vulcan 20mm cannon across the flight line while parked. “You can’t help thinking of what a disaster this could have been,” base commander Col. Didier Polome told a Belgian television news station in the aftermath.

The incident happened last Friday at Florennes Air Base in Southern Belgium during routine maintenance of the jet that fired, and reportedly involved the crew servicing an F-16 accidentally triggering the heavy aircraft cannon.

After two days of non-stop news pertaining to the widening backlash to the disappearance of Saudi insider-turned dissident journalist Jamal Khashoggi, who is widely suspected to have been murdered inside the Saudi consulate in Istanbul during a trip to obtain a marriage license, the New York Times waited until 6:30 pm ET to drop one of the biggest bombshells yet. Citing sources from within the Turkish government (who have taken the lead in directing the international outrage by first leaking information about Khashoggi’s killing, then following that up with claims that they had substantive evidence), the NYT reports that Turkish officials have linked four members of the 15-man Saudi hit squad purportedly sent to ambush Khashoggi to Crown Prince Mohammad bin Salman, who earlier today denied having any knowledge of the killing during a conversation with President Trump and Secretary of State Mike Pompeo.

Cyber Saturday— Doubts Swirl Around Bloomberg’s China Chip Hack Report

In last weekend’s column we discussed Bloomberg Businessweek’s recent, explosive reportalleging that Chinese spies had planted surveillance chips on the motherboards of computer servers that ended up inside more than two dozen companies, including Amazon and Apple. Just about all of the parties named in the piece issued strong denials. I urged readers to approach the story with skepticism. “It’s likely there is truth in the piece, but in which parts remains an open question,” I wrote.

A week later, I remain deeply troubled by this story—not because of its substance, but because of its lack of substantiation. It seems a little odd that no one has reported identifying a single one of these spy chips in the wild since Bloomberg’s report appeared, no? Wouldn’t it have been easy for any companies using servers containing components from Supermicro, the company whose products were allegedly backdoored, to send an engineer into a data center, pry open a server, pluck out an offending implant, and reveal China’s alleged subterfuge to the world? Instead, we hear cricket chirps.

Talks Begin on Disarming Korean Border Village

SEOUL, South Korea — Officials from North and South Korea and the United Nations began talks on Tuesday to turn a border village into an unarmed neutral enclave where military guards and tourists from both sides would move freely across the demarcation line.

The village of Panmunjom, also known as the Joint Security Area, lies inside the Demilitarized Zone, a buffer zone one and a half miles wide that has divided the Korean Peninsula since the Korean War was halted in a truce in 1953. Panmunjom was originally created as a neutral area. But since North Korean soldiers wielding axes killed two American Army officers there in 1976, it has been divided by a demarcation line like the rest of the DMZ, with armed guards from both sides engaged in a tense, daily standoff.

The Coming War With China?

by Srdja Trifkovic

Over the past few weeks we have witnessed a rapid and (for the past half-century) unprecedented worsening of relations between the United States and China. It is uncertain, for now, whether this is the result of a deliberate shift in strategy by Washington or the cumulative effect of a series of incremental moves and counter-moves which create the impression of a dangerously worsening, fundamentally adversarial relationship.

In his remarks to the UN Security Council on September 26, President Donald Trump accused China point-blank of “attempting to interfere in our upcoming 2018 election . . . against my administration.” With Chinese Foreign Minister Wang Yi listening impassively only yards away, Trump asserted that Chinese “do not want me or us to win, because I am the first president ever to challenge China on trade, and we are winning on trade, we are winning at every level.” Wang subsequently tried to shrug off Trump’s charges, asserting later in the UNSC session that China’s long-standing policy is to not interfere in the domestic affairs of other countries.

The incident reflected a constant theme in this year’s UN General Assembly, “the increasingly pitched rivalry between the world´s two superpowers.” Trump’s remarkable Security Council accusation was preceded by his gutsy UNGA speech on September 25 in which he declared that Beijing’s economic policies “cannot be tolerated” anymore. Trump was much harsher on China than in his first UN address a year ago. “I have great respect and affection for my friend president Xi [Jinping], but I have made clear that our trade imbalance is just not acceptable,” Trump said…

Using Google Tools, ‘Alien Base’ Said to be Found on the Moon

Odd-looking structures which appear to be artificial have been spotted on the Moon using Google tools. This discovery has been leading some alien conspiracy theorists to believe that extraterrestrials have established a lunar base — or several of them.

According to The Express UK, UFO hunter Sandra Elena Andrade wrote about the discovery on her YouTube page. “Large buildings in the craters of the Moon were discovered by the Argentine researcher Marcelo Irazusta,” Andrade wrote. “The images are very clear. Some with a pyramid shape. Their forms show that they were built by [sic] intelligent civilization.”

Italy: We Don’t Accept France’s Apology for Migrant Drop — Salvini

Minister says ‘sickening’ incident is ‘international shame’

(ANSA) — Rome, October 16 — Deputy Premier and Interior Minister Matteo Salvini said Tuesday that Italy had not accepted Paris’s apology after a French gendarmery police van was seen dropping off two men in woods on Friday near the border at Claviere — as Italian prosecutors said they were investigating a second such incident. The men are suspected of being migrants of African origin. A French official said the incident was a “mistake” committed by two officers who were new to the area. “Abandoning immigrants in an Italian forest cannot be considered a mistake or an incident,” Salvini said.

“What happened in Claviere is an unprecedented offence against our country and I wonder whether the international organizations — starting with the UN and Europe — find it ‘sickening’ to leave people in an isolated area with no assistance.

“We are faced with an international shame and Mr (Emmanuel) Macron cannot pretend nothing has happened.

“We don’t accept the apology”. Meanwhile Turin prosecutors said they were investigating another French foray to Claviere in August, when French officers allegedly checked up on two Italians living there.

The Italians were checked by four armed men in camouflage jackets who were “in all likelihood French”, said Turin Chief Prosecutor Armando Spataro.

The incident took lace on August 2 and was reported by Carabinieri on August 20, he said.

“Who were these immigrants? Where did they come from? Why were they abandoned? And again: for civilian Paris, is it normal to dump people in the woods?

Turning America Into Everybody Else’s Country: Cultural Suicide

In the past month, Congress carved up a Supreme Court justice’s life like a butcher might carve up a beef carcass. U.S. Senators Diane Feinstein, Dick Durbin, Charles Schumer, Cory Booker and others lacerated Brett Cavanaugh’s impeccable life of integrity with cruelty of Jack the Ripper. They trashed him on speculation. They demeaned him via accusation. They quartered him without “due process.”

At the same time, 535 members of Congress don’t mind hacking up America’ culture, tearing the underpinnings of America’s English language and ripping its ethos into millions of shards of foreign human imports.

Not a word from any of our leaders! Not a word from American citizens! Not a peep from top media people watching the invasion of America by millions of foreigners!

At the current rates of Mexican-Latino-Hispanic immigration into the United States and their extraordinary birth rates, Mexicans will become the new 51 percent majority ethnic group in America by 2042 according to http://www.PewResearchCenter.org.

While Brett Kavanaugh, along with his wife and kids, watched his life torn to shreds by an accusation, Congress failed to lift a finger to stop 22 to 25 million illegal alien border jumpers racing across our borders for the past 30 years.

No matter how many laws they break, no matter how many rapes they committed, no matter how many acts of burglary, shoplifting, killing, drunk driving deaths and forged identifications—illegal aliens in America get a pass, go free and enjoy immunity from prosecution. Additionally, their employers, landlords and bus drivers never see prosecution or jail time.

“The majority in our country is diverse and open — we are for solidarity and against division! When haters try to divide us we move closer together. Great!” Foreign Minister Heiko Maas tweeted.

‘I Stand for the Flag, I Kneel at the Cross’: Allegheny Co. Democratic Party Chair Forced to Resign Amid Controversy

PITTSBURGH (KDKA) — Mark Salvas says he was forced to resign over two social media posts, one that he posted a year ago and one that his wife posted in July.

“I was asked by the chair of the Allegheny County Democratic Party to resign my position due to the controversy that was taking place on social media, and I did,” Salvas told KDKA political editor Jon Delano on Wednesday. “It’s never easy when people you have never met accuse you of things and call you names, and you’ve never met them.”

A former Marine and Gulf War veteran, Salvas was just hired in September as executive director of the county party, long after he posted a picture of his wife and him on Facebook with the words, “I stand for the flag, I kneel at the cross.”

“I’m not ashamed of my patriotism, not one bit. I fought for this country. I think I have a right to have a voice and be patriotic,” says Salvas.

But he says NFL players can take a knee.

“That’s part of what the flag stands for. It gives them the right to do that,” says Salvas.

But Salvas chooses to stand.

Salvas: “I stand for the flag, I kneel for the cross.”

Delano: “No apologies?”

Salvas: “Not at all. Not at all.”

But some on social media called that inappropriate for a Democratic party leader, including a second post from Salvas’ wife asking for support for their close friends, the family of officer Michael Rosfeld, who is accused of killing Antwon Rose II.

“What happened to Antwon Rose was a tragedy. I don’t think anybody doubts that. I think we can all agree on that. A young man lost his life and that’s a shame,” says Salvas. “Officer Rosfeld, Michael Rosfeld, is as close to me and my family as anyone could be. I have known that young man since he was literally 3-years-old. They are family to us.

Salvas says, like the Rose family, the Rosfeld family is struggling with the tragedy.

“They have been there for us in hard times, and my wife and I felt it was necessary to be there for them because family backs family,” he said.

Is it Okay to Celebrate Halloween? For Many Americans, It is a Time for Blood Rituals and Unspeakable Acts of Evil

What I am about to share with you is incredibly disturbing. Every year on October 31st, some of the most horrifying acts imaginable are carried out in dark corners and back rooms all across America. In this article, you are going to read about some of those acts. But for most Americans, Halloween is a supposedly “innocent” holiday that is all about dressing up, eating lots of candy and having fun. When I was growing up, I gladly participated in the festivities too, because I didn’t understand what the holiday was all about. According to the National Retail Federation, approximately 70 percent of all Americans celebrate Halloween, and a total of somewhere around 9 billion dollars will be spent on the holiday this year. But most Americans do not understand that almost all of our modern “Halloween traditions” have their roots in a bloody ancient pagan festival known as Samhain…

The origins of Halloween are Celtic in tradition and have to do with observing the end of summer sacrifices to gods in Druidic tradition. In what is now Britain and France, it was the beginning of the Celtic year, and they believed Samhain, the lord of death, sent evil spirits abroad to attack humans, who could escape only by assuming disguises and looking like evil spirits themselves. The waning of the sun and the approach of dark winter made the evil spirits rejoice and play nasty tricks. Believe it or not, most of our Halloween practices can be traced back to these old pagan rites and superstitions.

Of course most Americans have never even heard of Samhain, but for those that are into witchcraft it is one of the most important days of the year. The largest witchcraft tradition in America is known as “Wicca”, and if you do a Google search for “Wicca” and “Halloween” you will quickly discover that it is one of the key dates on their “wheel of the year”…

US School Bans Christmas Carols Containing Word “Jesus” In Fear They May be Offensive to ‘Diverse Students’

Students at Robious Middle School in Chesterfield County, Virginia have been told they won’t be singing any songs representing Jesus due to the “sacred nature” of Christ.

“We had a few students who weren’t comfortable singing a piece I have done many times in the past, but it is of a sacred nature and does mention Jesus”, the school’s chorus teacher tells a concerned parent in an email.

In an astronomical first, four gigantic planets have been detected around a very young star, a new study reports.

The star in question is CI Tau, which lies about 500 light-years from Earth. CI Tau is just 2 million years old and is still surrounded by a swirling clump of dust and gas known as a protoplanetary disk.

Sperm Counts Continue to Fall

Men’s sperm have been decreasing in number and getting worse at swimming for some time now—and, at least in the United States and Europe, new research says it’s getting worse. A pair of new studies unveiled this week at the Scientific Congress of the American Society for Reproductive Medicine (ASRM) in Denver suggest that American and European men’s sperm count and sperm motility—that is, the “swimming” ability of sperm cells—have declined in the past decade, which follows a similar, broader trend observed by many scientists over the past few decades.

  1. Little Dennis is probably too pale to be of any interests to Sweden’s bureaucrats…

    In other news a 38-years old Slovak woman was aparently raped in a tent in an Italian “refugee” camp. According to the report she was drinking with the man and when she wanted to leave he raped her, beat her and didn’t allow her to go until after several hours she plead to go to the bathroom and used the chance to escape and contact the police. It’s unknown whether she was helping in the camp or is working in Italy, Slovak authorities aparently weren’t informed by the Italian police or the woman so far. The source was in Czech, so I assume there’s no point in linking it.

  2. “Leftist Ideologues Call for the Abolition of White Men”

    Based on Senator Warren’s recent example of microscopic Indian heritage, I would think the average American White man probably has as much statistical right to claim they are not white, but “native American.” And if you doubt it, you’re a racist.

    • Didn’t SJWs have something like “trans-race” too? Everyone can just claim they feel to be black, Asian or native American on the inside and that’s that.

  3. “The government is looking to expand the number of “protected characteristics” for hate crimes to include men, old people, and Goths, as the number of recorded hate incidents in every category increased to a new record high.”

    Perhaps the Hate Crime department could add “small people” and lefthanders to the list of the “protected characteristics”.

  4. The Proud Boys are being lynched by the crooked NYPD and DA Cider Vance, Jr. who could find nothing wrong with Harvey Weinstein’s predations. No NYC jury will convict the victims and not the Far Left, violent, Antifa anarchists.

  5. “Leftist ideologues call for the abolition of white men .”
    Yes , that is all very true but unfortunately too few people know or care what Mandela really was and did . Communist killers all of them and it wont stop until they are destroyed.
    Meanwhile the murders continue at alarming rates .

    • Whilst in the Australian Senate a motion ” it’s OK
      To be white” was discussed and Defeated.
      Green light for the Somalia gangs and non white folk
      To carry on as usual.

      A nation voting for their own destruction – the world
      Has just got even crazier.
