Gates of Vienna News Feed 11/4/2018

Italian Interior Minister Matteo Salvini announced that Italy will save €400 million by cutting the daily allowance for migrants. Mr. Salvini’s popularity has increased so much that the 5-Star Movement, his coalition partner, is being eclipsed by the Lega Nord.

Three Events That Could Change the Face of America

The deeper issue at hand is that globalists are seeking an end to the U.S. dollar as the world reserve currency and the petro-currency, and Saudi Arabia is a key catalyst to breaking the dollar’s back in a way that makes it appear as though global banks had nothing to do with the situation…

To be clear, the Fed has indeed acted as a destructive force within the U.S. economy. Fed officials have openly admitted on numerous occasions to creating and then bursting financial bubbles that have led to disastrous results for the American public. Jerome Powell, the current Fed chairman, warned in 2012 of the eventual and pervasive market crash that would occur if the Fed raised interest and cut balance sheet assets while markets were still addicted to easy credit. Now, he is enacting those exact policies knowing what will happen.

While I fully support the dismantling of the Federal Reserve as a saboteur of the U.S. economy, what I am concerned about is who will rebuild the U.S. system afterwards? A White House war on the Fed will help cause the death of the dollar’s world reserve status. This is a guarantee. Our economy is utterly dependent on this status for it’s continued stability.

You see, the globalists have created a Catch-22; if conservatives do not shut down the Fed, the Fed will continue raising rates and cutting its balance sheet into economic weakness just as they historically always have. The “everything bubble” will burst and a collapse will result. If we shut down the Fed our currency will lose reserve status and dollars held overseas will come flooding back into the U.S. through various channels causing hyperinflation (among other things). A collapse is unavoidable.

“Never Forget”: Gov’t Said the Air Was Safe, Now Thousands of 9/11 First Responders Have Cancer

As Americans prepare for the 17th anniversary of the 9/11 attacks, nearly 10,000 first responders and New York City residents have reported 9/11-related cancers.

In early August the New York Post reported on newly released numbers of reported 9/11 related illnesses, including 9,795 total case of 9/11-related cancer. The numbers were released by the federally funded World Trade Center Health Program.

According to the program there have been more than 400 documented cases of death from 9/11-related cancers. However, unfortunately, the plight of the men and women who rushed into “Ground Zero” on September 11, 2001 and the following months is often forgotten in the public conversation. Seventeen years after the attacks the first responders are still fighting for their lives.

90% of Google Employee Contributions Went to Dems…

Americans are rightly concerned that Big Tech companies in Silicon Valley have an outsized influence over the news and opinions we see on social media platforms and in Google searches. The fact that most of these platforms originate in some of the most liberal strongholds in the country — Mountain View, San Francisco, and Menlo Park, California — raises questions about whether they’re either intentionally or subconsciously putting their oversized thumbs on the scales to promote points of view they agree with and hide views they find odious or dangerous. A study released today from GovPredict shows that more than 90 percent of political donations by Alphabet employees went to Democrats. This news will only amplify fears that everything we read, see, and hear is being controlled by tech industry employees with a left-wing political bent.

Average American Works More Hours Than Medieval Peasant

Think you’re working less than peasants did way back in the medieval ages? Although jobs have changed significantly since then, chances are, you’re probably wrong.

Research from Juliet Schor, currently a Professor of Sociology at Boston College, from her text The Overworked American: The Unexpected Decline of Leisure, shows this isn’t the case. The average American worker in 1987 was working about 1,949 hours annually, while an adult male peasant in 13th-century U.K. racked up approximately 1620 yearly. Schor provides details in the text about how working hours have changed over centuries, and why. You might be thinking, “that’s nice and all, but it isn’t the ‘80s anymore — how are we doing in the 21st century?”

‘Die Jew Rats’ Synagogue Vandal Was Anti-Hate-Crime Intern & Democratic Activist

In a bizarre twist, the man who spray painted anti-Semitic graffiti on a Brooklyn synagogue turned out to be “queer,” black, former anti-hate-crime intern, James Polite: a 26-year-old with loving Jewish foster parents.

Less than a week after a gunman murdered 11 worshippers at a Pittsburgh synagogue, anti-Semitic graffiti was found scrawled inside Union Temple in Brooklyn’s predominantly Jewish Prospect Heights neighborhood. The graffiti read “Die Jew Rats” and “Hitler.”

Far from being an archetypal tattooed skinhead, Polite is a black former Democratic intern who had his college education bankrolled by the New York Times’ ‘Neediest Cases Fund.’

Georgia Dem Candidate Stacey Abrams Backpedals on Past Strict Gun Control Measures [Video]

Stacey Abrams has been the darling of the media and the local Democrats in Georgia because she would be the first black female governor if elected. That’s pretty much all you hear from anyone and everyone about Abrams. Identity politics is a favorite tactic of the left. They just love the thought and emotion behind election the first black female governor.

Do Georgians know the policies that this candidate would support if elected, or do they just care about electing the first black female governor?

Do they know she supported strict gun control measures in the past?

Abrams has made some startling statements during the campaign against Republican Kemp but you never hear them. The media is so focused on electing the first black female governor…

Don’t voters deserve a more informative media that sticks to the facts? The propaganda in the Georgia media is off the charts. Let’s hope the voters see through this and elect the BEST CANDIDATE with THE BEST POLICY for Georgians.

Judge Orders Release of Antifa Leader Yvette Felarca’s Emails

Last year the group Judicial Watch filed a request for Berkeley Unified School District’s emails related to Antifa leader Yvette Felarca, who is a teacher at an area Middle School. Felarca sued the school district arguing that releasing the emails (anything with her name or the name of her Antifa group “BAMN”) would violate her rights. Just under two weeks ago a judge issued a terse order saying the released of documents would not violate Felarca’s rights and adding, “It is not a close question.” Berkleyside reports that Felarca was not pleased with the decision.

Largest Voting Machine Vendor in US Admits Its Systems Had Remote-Access Software Installed

A bombshell revelation on the security of voting in the United States has just surfaced in the form of a letter from the country’s largest voting machine manufacturer. The company, Election Systems and Software (ES&S) admitted that despite denying previous allegations of its voting systems coming installed with remote-access software, their systems did, indeed, allow for remote connections.

In a letter to Sen. Ron Wyden (D-OR), written in April, but only released this week, the company acknowledged that it had installed software that made the systems remotely accessible from anywhere.

“Prior to the inception of the [Election Assistance Commission] testing and certification program and the subsequent requirement for hardening and at customer’s request, ES&S provided pcAnywhere remote connection software on the [Election-Management System] workstation to a small number of customers between 2000 and 2006,” wrote Tom Burt, ES&S president…

For those who may be unfamiliar, pcAnywhere was a remote-access software by Symantec which allowed people to remotely access other computers from anywhere in the world. In 2012, Symantec issued a press release telling all users to disable and uninstall the software after admitting that it had been hacked years prior in 2006 — at the same time ES&S was selling voting systems with pcAnywhere pre-installed on them.

Photo Emerges of Democrat Congressional Candidate Jokingly Pointing Gun at Head of Soldier

A photo has emerged showing Democrat Congressional candidate George Scott (PA-10) pointing a gun at an American soldier in what was allegedly a prank about handling captives.

According to Penn Live, Scott indicated that pointing the gun at the soldier’s head was to produce what was “intended as a comic image.”

Scott indicates the photo of him pointing a gun at a fellow soldier was taken in 1989 or 1990, “near [the] completion of Operation Just Cause in Panama.”

Talk radio host, and Rush Limbaugh guest host, Ken Matthews posted the picture of Scott to Facebook and said, “I don’t want this guy anywhere near our U.S. Congress.”

Roger Stone Rips Michael Cohen for Claims About Trump’s Racist Talk: He’s ‘Become a Tool of His New Handlers’

“I’ve known him for 40 years. I have never heard him say anything of the kind.”

Roger Stone swiped at former Trump lawyer Michael Cohen for dishing to Vanity Fair about more examples of President Donald Trump’s racist statements in private.

To recap, Cohen claimed that Trump made a number of shocking racist statements in private over the years, including “black people are too stupid to vote for me.”

CNN’s Michael Smerconish spoke with Stone this morning to ask him about the scrutiny surrounding his connection to Julian Assange, and towards the end he directly asked Stone if he’s ever heard Trump say anything racist.

“I’ve known him for 40 years. I have never heard him say anything of the kind,” Stone said, going on to talk about black support of Trump and touting how well the President did with African-Americans in certain parts of the country.

Screaming “Reverend” Has Embarrassing Meltdown Over Trump’s Visit to Tree of Life Synagogue

In what can only be described as the most intolerant display of “tolerance”, a seriously unhinged Presbyterian minister, Rev. Susan Rothenberg, who lives a few houses away from the Tree of Life Synagogue where 11 Jews were killed by a deranged, Trump-hating anti-semite, was seen screaming at the top of her lungs at the President of the United States.

After watching this video, it truly makes one wonder how such a person has been entrusted with leading a Christian congregation to teach tolerance, love, acceptance, and compassion. If the Reverend Susan Rothenberg is the best example that the Squirrel Hill Presbyterian Church has of tolerance, love, or compassion, their congregation is truly in trouble.

Watch, as Rothenburg screams at the top of her lungs at what appears to be President Trump’s motorcade, as he and First Lady Melania Trump, along with Trump’s Jewish daughter, Ivanka and her Jewish husband Jared Kushner pay their respects for 11 innocent victims of a madman whose heart was clearly filled with hate. Rothenburg screams as two young people stand by and listen to her hateful rant.

Soros’ Role in Social Media Censorship Revealed in Leaked Document

Censorship is not the American way, and while people today may think that the ‘other’ side is dead wrong and shouldn’t be allowed to speak up, it takes a special kind of influence to achieve the level of social media and platform banning that we’ve seen in recent weeks.

It turns out, according to a leaked 49-page document, that this special influence may be none other than George Soros himself, the world’s wealthiest liberal political agitator. Soros has long been known to exert influence, via his immense personal wealth, at the grass-roots level of many political struggles around the world.

The full confidential memo, which reads like a subversive political manifesto, was written by American liberal political activist and author, David Brock, also the founder of Media Matters for America.

Entitled, Democracy Matters: Strategic Plan for Action, and composed in early 2017, it lays out the Democratic plan to oppose Trump’s presidency at all costs by waging a daily media war, and we have been feeling the results of this strategy since Trump took office, and after nearly two years as president, the media landscape is in utter chaos, and the population is more divided than it has been since the American Civil War.

Regarding Soros, he is a known financier of Media Matters, of which he has supported since 2010 in an overt effort to counter news organizations like Fox News. Soros has developed the reputation of being the world’s leading agit-prop bankroller.

Furthermore, the memo discusses how big tech companies like Google, Facebook and Twitter (all of which are openly censoring user accounts today) will be recruited and called upon to collude with the Soros and Brock agenda in order to manipulate the political landscape.

Collusion between Media Matters and social media platforms runs rather deep, as noted by WND:

This Election May be the Most Important of Our Time

by Roger Anghis

Nobody really knew Barack Obama, still don’t, but what was available on him proved he was a horrible candidate. Obama even stated what he was going to do to take America down several notches.

On Meet the Press on September 7, 2008 he stated: “It’s my intention, if elected, to disarm America to the level of acceptance to our Middle East Brethren. If we, as a Nation of warring people, conduct ourselves like the nations of Islam, where peace prevails — — — perhaps a state or period of mutual accord could exist between our governments ……” We need to conduct ourselves ‘like the nations of islam’? Seriously? That should have scared the heck out of all of American voters. This didn’t bother the Democrats. If that wasn’t enough, in his book Audacity of Hope he stated: ‘I will stand with the Muslims should the political winds shift in an ugly direction.’ Any one that would stand with our enemy instead of the nation he was elected to serve as leader, doesn’t deserve to hold that position. But, again, this didn’t bother the Democrats. Then we had the flag pin moment.

He stated: “As I’ve said about the flag pin, I don’t want to be perceived as taking sides.” “There are a lot of people in the world to whom the American flag is a symbol of oppression…” “The anthem itself conveys a war-like message. You know, the bombs bursting in air and all that sort of thing.” Obama continued: “The National Anthem should be ‘swapped’ for something less parochial and less bellicose. I like the song ‘I’d Like To Teach the World To Sing’.[1] 1 He felt that wearing the flag was taking sides? Isn’t that what the President is supposed to do? Then he states he wants to feminize our National Anthem! What more did any God-fearing patriot need to hear to know this anti-American lowlife was not fit for the office? Again, the Democrats had no problem. They wanted power and didn’t care who got hurt to get it.

McCain was bad, but he wasn’t that bad. A friend of mine that was one of our State Senators commented that elections have consequences. That they did. In 2008 we elected a British subject, literally, as President of the United States. He may have been born in Hawaii, which is greatly questionable, and we don’t have time to cover that in this article, but because his dad was a British subject, international protocol acknowledged by the United States dictated that Obama was also a British subject and citizen of Kenya. Again, the Democrats didn’t have a problem with violating the Constitution and neither did the Republicans. That shows you how many globalists are in the Republican Party. Elections have consequences.

The worst part about Obama was he was re-elected in 2012. People ignored the fact that he did two world tours apologizing for the actions of America. You know, saving the world from German domination in WWI and German/Japanese domination in WWII, being the most prosperous nation, the world has ever seen without giving our wealth away to nations that won’t let their people access the resources of their nation, what cads we are, giving aid to nations that hate us and the list goes on.

Then we have the ‘most transparent administration in the history of America’. People either forgot or ignored the Chrysler bailout,[2] and who could forget Obamacare? You know the, If you like your doctor you can keep your doctor lie,[3] the political profiling by the IRS,[4] the assault on free speech and due process on college campuses,[5] then we have the EPA’s Cap and Trade on carbon emissions.[6] Elections have consequences. Do we even have to talk about Fast and Furious?, Benghazi?, the Iran nuclear deal and the pallets of money he sent them. By the way, when Loretta Lynch was asked where Obama got the money, she pleaded the 5th. So we’re sure that it was an upright transaction. Remember Eric Holder being held in contempt of Congress for refusing to hand over documents? We still don’t have those documents. Elections have consequences.

Watch: Democrat Lets His Mask Slip… Says People With Differing Opinions Need to be “Dealt With”

Democrat Chris Hahn makes the rounds on Fox News to give the leftist opinion on just about everything. He just let his fascist mask slip when he said that people who disagree with specific opinions that are widely believed should be “dealt with”…Yes, he really said what the left claims they are fighting against. It’s like the irony of Antifa aka anti-fascists who beat people up who don’t agree with them.

Hahn said people should be “dealt with”:

“Look, I believe you have to get everyone to come around at the idea that all men and all women are created equal in this country and should be treated with dignity and respect. When there are people who are not willing to treat people with dignity and respect, they need to be dealt with in society because this is not what we have in a welcoming open society, people who are actively trying to hurt people based on their race, sex, religion, gender or sexual identity.”

Sweden: Rape Wave in Karlstad: 7 Rapes and Attempts of Rape in Couple of Week Time in the End of October

It looks like that some sort of rape wave is going on in Karlstad and surrounding areas. Two more rapes have been reported in the end of this month in addition of five rapes that made the news couple days a go.

Previous rape happened saturday 20th of october, but police officials haven’t given basicly any information of this incident. All that is known this far is the fact that young under aged girl was attacked on saturday night. Unknown man attacked the girl and raped her.

Yet another incident happened on thursday 18th in the middle of the day. This deed ended to be only an attempt of the rape. Women was walking the dog, when again a unknown man assaulted her. Man punched her and tried to pull off womans clothes “like a madman” as local newspaper NWT tells. Womans small dog started barking loudly and with that women was able to hit the man and was able to run away, as did the attacker.

Karlstad became known couple years a go when in winter 2016 a group just-arrived-migrants and gang of “youths who came alone” roamed through the city and assaulted local youth (boys as well as girls) who ever came across. Then came to known the fact that these attackers were arrogant especially towards girls. Whole winter lasted “taharrus” started in new years eve. (Big taharrus-night across Europe)…

Alice Weidel is the leader of the anti-migration German party, the AfD, and is whom the Oxford Labour Muslim Network have organised and signed a letter in attempts to block Alice from speaking. The letter was signed by students, professors and alumni.

Jihadists Open Fire on Buses of Egyptian Christians, Killing 13

Militants of the Islamic State massacred 13 Christians in Minya, Egypt, opening fire Friday on busloads of pilgrims traveling to the monastery of St. Samuel the Confessor.

The jihadists fired upon three buses, ultimately blocking two of them while the third escaped. The gunmen ordered everyone to get out of the buses and then began shooting them in cold blood, the Vatican newspaper, L’Osservatore Romano, reported Saturday.

Among those slaughtered by the militants were at least three children and seven women

George Soros Funds Groups ‘That Defame the Jewish State’

Although some pundits, mostly on the left, have denounced criticism of left-wing billionaire George Soros as anti-Semitic, it is important to note that Israel has officially stated that criticism of Soros is legitimate because he “continuously” seeks to undermine the Israeli government and he funds organizations “that defame the Jewish state.”

These same Soros-funded groups also seek to prevent Israel from defending itself, according to the Israeli government.

65 Years Ago, The CIA Conspired With the UK to Overthrow Iran on Behalf of Big Oil

Aug 20th marked the 65th anniversary that the west carried out a coup in Iran that destabilized the county by overthrowing the country’s democratically elected leader, Mohammad Mossadeq, and installed a CIA-groomed dictator.

What was once considered a conspiracy theory is now a fact as the government has since admitted to carrying out Operation Ajax that was planned by the CIA in conjunction with MI6 in the UK to exploit the Iranian people and steal their oil on behalf of the Anglo-Iranian Oil Company (AIOC) — the British state-owned oil company established in 1908 with this objective in mind and the forerunner of today’s global oil conglomerate BP.

As TFTP reported last year, the State Department released a trove of documents that give insight into the CIA’s role in the 1953 coup d’état that led to the overthrow of Iranian Prime Minister Mohammad Mossadeq.

The newly declassified documents, titled “Foreign Relations of the United States, 1952-1954, Iran, 1951—1954,” provide a notable difference from the State Department’s 1989 version of the coup, which left out any involvement from American and British intelligence.

Kuwait Looking to Bring Home Fighters From Syria: Report

Kuwaiti security authorities are currently working on bringing a number of Kuwaitis fighting in Syria home to be tried in courts of law, although many of them have been avoiding the return, well-informed sources said. The sources added that the majority of those fighters are affiliated to Hayat Tahrir al-Sham (HTS), formerly known as the Al-Nusra Front headed by Abu Mohammed Al-Jolani in Idlib, while a lesser number are in the Aleppo countryside. The Kuwaiti fighters include a former imam with the ministry of awqaf who joined Al-Nusra and became one of its top five leaders, before he broke up with it and exchanged accusations with Jolani, the sources said. The fighters also include one of Jolani’s assistants who had previously fought in Afghanistan, said the sources, adding that he disagreed with a member of the Egyptian wing of the army, Abul Fath Al-Farghali, over the withdrawal from Idlib according to the Sochi agreement between Turkey and Russia. The sources added that this person is still in contact with extremists in Kuwait, including those who had been indicted in the Peninsula Lions case. Finally, the sources said that the total number of Kuwaiti fighters still in Syria is 12, including IS members and others.

Paleontologists Discovered Six New Species in the East African Rift

Sometimes hidden clues beneath our feet can reveal intriguing stories about the impacts of environmental change.

Six new species of invertebrates were discovered during a paleontological exploration of rift deposits in southwestern Tanzania by Ohio University professor, Nancy Stevens and her research team. After analyzing invertebrate fossils that were alive 24 to 26 million years ago in the Rukwa Rift Basin, OHIO paleontologists published the first documentation of a rapid diversification of freshwater gastropod species at a time of pivotal environment change in this specific area. Their article, “Morphological diversification of ampullariid gastropods (Nsungwe Formation, Late Oligocene, Rukwa Rift Basin, Tanzania) is coincident with onset of East African rifting,” was published in Papers in Palaeontology.

20,000 Armed Migrants Ready to Enter Via EU Border — Report

The planned breakthrough will reportedly take place ahead of signing a proposed UN Global Compact for Safe, Orderly and Regular Migration pact. Several countries such as the US and Austria have already backed out of the treaty.

Some 20,000 migrants are currently preparing to break through the Bosnian-Croatian border near Velika-Kladusa, Kronen Zeitung reported, citing an anonymous department head from the Austrian Interior Ministry. The migrant crowd is purportedly made up of young men of Pakistani, Iranian, Algerian and Moroccan descent as opposed to earlier migrant “waves” from Syria. And there are almost no women in this group.

No Truth Allowed About the Asylum Scam?

What The Left Doesn’t Want You To Know About How We’re Getting “Played” At The Border

A spokesperson for USCIS told the truth to The Daily Caller about how we’re being played at the border by Central Americans. He’s being hammered on Twitter for doing so. The left is hoping Americans will ignore the facts listed below from Michael J. Bars…

It isn’t fair to people with true “credible fear” who really need asylum and it’s not fair to the American taxpayers. Michael J. Bars tweeted out a series of truthful statistics and was promptly slammed by people who called The Daily Caller a “white NATIONALIST publication”.

If telling the truth and not wanting wide open borders is being a white nationalist then lots and lots of Americans would be in that category. The race card is gone and in its place is the “white nationalist card”. It’s an Alinsky tactic often used by the left to shame people for what they rightly believe in. Shouldn’t Americans want borders? We think so and we believe Americans need to know the truth about what’s going on at our southern border. Thank you to Michael J. Bars for being honest with us…

Pope Francis: Migrants Are ‘Ignored, Exploited, Raped, And Abused’

Migrants today are “ignored, exploited, raped and abused before the guilty silence of many,” Pope Francis said Friday.

In his address to the World Social Forum on Migrations, the pope said that just as in the days of the prophet Jeremiah, today “there are evils to be eradicated, injustices to be obliterated, discriminations to be destroyed, privileges to be overthrown, dignities to be rebuilt, and values to be inculcated.”

Why Do Middle Eastern Refugees Vandalize Christian Structures?

Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan, in his speech at the United Nations General Assembly in September, launched a scathing attack on the European Union. He accused the EU of having not done enough to support the refugees and claimed that the EU should pay Turkey more than it pledged (three billion euros).

Erdogan has often argued that Christian Europe should admit more Muslim refugees. In a 2016 speech, he angrily threatened to open the floodgates of migrants into Europe again (in 2015 alone, three quarters of a million migrants passed through Turkey on their way to Europe).

Women in Migrant-Heavy Paris Area Complain Harassment Getting Even Worse

“The situation has worsened. Of course, since these men are more and more numerous.”

Women living in a heavily migrant-populated Paris area who complained about constant harassment from men last year are saying the situation has become even worse, with some refusing to even leave their homes.

Last year a group of local women signed a petition in an attempt to call attention to the situation in the Chapelle-Pajol district in northern Paris, but now they claim the situation has become even worse than before, Le Parisien reports.

“The situation has worsened. Of course, since these men are more and more numerous. Like many others, I gave up taking the metro to La Chapelle, to cross the square … Even at a running pace,” a local woman who did not wish to be identified said.

“And do not talk about cafes. They do not say ‘Women Prohibited’ on the front, of course, but who would risk it? The police are more present, it’s true, but the fights are also more and more numerous and violent. I have the impression that these traffickers won the game: they took possession of the place,” she added.

Texas: Both Partners Carry the Fetus in Artificially Fertilized Lap

It is a first time in the history of artificial insemination: “It is a revolutionary method, more natural and less expensive”

(by Giovanni D’Agata) In the Center for Reproductive Medicine in Dallas, Texas, a new technique of in vitro fertilization has allowed two women, partners in a same-sex couple, to bring their future baby into the womb. Even for a short time, and obviously at different times. The two women, Ashleigh and Bliss Coulter called their little ‘miracle baby’: “The way our son came into the world is really special,” he told US Ashleigh TV.

In the technique, called ‘Effortless IVF’ (Effortless In Vitro Fertilization ‘, ed), the Bliss eggs were fertilized by a donor’s seed. Then, instead of being placed in an incubator, as is normally the case with in vitro fertilization, the eggs and sperm were transferred to a device and implanted in Bliss’s uterus for a few days, and then removed. At that point one of the embryos brought into the womb by Bliss was implanted in Ashley’s uterus, which led the rest of the pregnancy until delivery. “It’s a revolutionary method, more natural and less expensive than artificial fertilization,” says clinic founder Kevin Doody. In its center already 200 pairs have used the procedure ‘Effortless IVF’, but this time it is the first for a couple of the same sex. For Giovanni D’Agata, president of the “Rights Window”, this is obviously an extreme case, which however highlights the paradoxical nature of the story. In Italy the techniques of heterologous fertilization, surrogate motherhood, freezing and pre-implantation genetic diagnosis are prohibited.

  1. Russia on the international stage is posing as a fighter for the right idea. Russia welcomes Wilders, Robbins, Le Pen, interviews with which only publishes (!) In English.

    In Russia, there is a “list of extremist materials” – books, music and video clips, pictures. If the police find them on your account, then you can be fined or have criminal or administrative proceedings.

    Please note that it is included recently in this list:

    Image of two men fighting and signatures under him: “Slavs! Protect your children from the Caucasian threat!” (In our country, Caucasian means a resident of the Caucasus)

    Photo of Muslims performing a religious ceremony (namaz) and signatures: “ISLAMIZATION is the last stage of social degradation”

      • Jehovah’s Witnesses have a rather bad reputation and are generally considered an extreme type of Christianity because of cases of parents leaving their children to die because their beliefs didn’t allow organ transplantation and so on. Anything negatively involving children is extremely frowned upon in Czechia and I imagine it’s the same in all Slavic countries, making Russia no exception.

  2. Hopefully, women in the West will be sickened by Third World men raping them by the thousands. Of course, they’re 86ing their own unborn babies by the millions. Bloodthirsty subsets of a troubled society. We can do without both groups, can’t we…and then prosper?

    • You may sincerely disgree with women’s right to choose abortion, but to call them “bloodthirsty” is abusive. It’s not a decision most people make lightly.

      • But it is a decision some do make lightly, and I suspect that that grouping is far larger than than is suggested. Furthermore, I wouldn’t classify ‘bloodthirsty’ as abusive in this case but a cry of horror from someone who is having difficulty encompassing the inhumanity of such an act which, in practice, is bloody and far more horrific than can be be comprehended by those good souls who have not been able to steel themselves to look at the photographs or read about the procedure.

  3. “Pope Francis: Migrants Are ‘Ignored, Exploited, Raped, And Abused’” if we exchange the word “migrants” with “native Europeans”, he speaks the truth.

  4. Concerning the article on Mossadeq and the 1953 coup d’etat [sic]:
    Maybe this is not the biggest problem of Westerners, especially in the horrible situation of being trampled under feet of barbarians. But that event is somehow connected to the horrible situation of today. So I feel I should elaborate on that. Also, I don’t like it when American Conservatives are fed with lies.

    What US did that day was not overthrowing Mossadeq, but Islamic forces. Mossadeq was already overthrown and, by the time, Tehran was under control of Islamic forces.

    The true story of 1953 is like this:

    There was a wretched man named Mossadeq who was a memeber of Qajar dynasty that ruled these lands before Pahlavi dynasty. He had one dream in life: to overthrow new royalty. Being an unprincipled man, he surrounded himself by a bunch of dangerous Islamic people and Social Democrats. One of his main men, Mozzafar Baghai, is actually the guy who wrote Khomeini’s books for him. Mossadeq’s affiliation with such people should be enough to know his filthy character.

    He was not a democratically elected prime minister either. There was no such thing those days. He was a premier directly appointed by monarch. Why Pahlavi agreed to appoint his father’s nemesis as the Premier is a mystery. Maybe he was too timid to reject the person univocally proposed by political parties.

    After his appointment, Mossadeq immediately started his subversive actions. He abolished Senate by help of Islamic mobs who entered the building and threw Senators out of the windows. Basically this was necessary for him, since only monarch or Senate could impeach him legally. Then he started fighting with the British company. British company several times announced they agree with new terms, but Mossadeq was not satisfied. Finally he unilaterally confiscated properties of the foreign company. He didn’t even feel it’s a good idea to submit an appeal to a court.

    But what happened that day in 1953? Mossadeq and his Islamic allies finally dethroned the monarch. Mobs climbed his mansion’s walls and followed him with daggers. He was lucky to escape and he was lucky he could fly a plane when captain was not around. After his departure, immediately the second coup inside the first coup activated. Islamics started taking over Mossadeq. They killed chief of Tehran Police and conquered the city. Tehran was under control of Islamic mobs when US forces entered the scene and Mossadeq was absolutely NOTHING by the time the alleged coup took place. Actually the Islamic Republic could be established in 1953 if President Eisenhower didn’t take appropriate action. And to me, it’s a mystery how President Eisenhower could unilaterally take action that day. Some say Harry Truman had a campaign against him and he wanted Islamic forces to win.

    God bless President Eisenhower, he is my hero. Still I’m a bit sad that conservatives and patriots in USA support Mossadeq and publish such bad articles in a patriotic website. Mossadeq is the idol of liberals, and I hope American patriots study more and understand they are not supporting a worthy person. He was simply a rich mob who was played by Islamic forces.
