Gates of Vienna News Feed 11/6/2018

An Afghan culture-enricher in Milan was sentenced to three years in prison for beating his baby daughter because he was unhappy she was not a boy. He also kicked, punched, and raped his wife, whom he had married when she was 15. Actually, I don’t know how he could possibly be said to have raped her, since they’re both Muslims.

In other news, there’s the midterm election results, but I’ve been dreading them so much that I didn’t look at them yet.

Bombshell: Women Discussed Vegas Massacre, “Shooting Fish in a Barrel” Shortly Before Shooting, Says Final Report

In an interview with Big League Politics Thursday, a former CIA Chief of Station and the President of Americans for Intelligence Reform discussed a bombshell revelation buried within the police final report regarding a premeditated conversation about the shooting, which occurred at the venue 30 minutes before Stephen Paddock rained bullets on the crowd.

“This is actually out of the [final] police report,” said Brad Johnson.

“So there was a young woman — I’ve exchanged phone calls with her, she doesn’t want me to use her name so I’ll respect that wish of hers — but she is a Department of Homeland Security TSA employee, so she’s trained in security and observing and so on.”

“Almost exactly a half hour before the shooting takes place, she’s at the back of the concert and looking forward towards the stage with all of the people with their backs towards her,” Johnson said. “At the back there had been a previous concert — there were some bails of hay and some things being put away — but it was a pretty big stack and on top of that stack there were two young women.”

After relaying the in-depth description of the two women provided by the TSA agent, Johnson dropped the bombshell:

“The first woman says, ‘Those stupid f****** white people, they’re going to know how it feels. They deserve this. Wait until later,’“ according to Johnson and the report.

“The second woman, who’s the rambunctious one, says ‘YO, like shooting fish in a barrel! Are you getting this, baby? I love you!’“ he said.

According to Johnson and the TSA agent, the women were live-streaming the occasion. Police have never followed up with the women described by the TSA employee.

Election Monitor in Montana Pleads Guilty to Drunken Driving

HELENA (AP) — An international organization observing the U.S. midterm elections decided on Monday to pull its two Montana-based election monitors from the state after one of them pleaded guilty to drunken driving.

Ognjen Domuz, a 30-year-old citizen of Bosnia and Herzegovina, pleaded guilty Monday to driving under the influence after he was stopped early Saturday morning in Helena. He was fined $785 and ordered to be evaluated for chemical dependency, Helena municipal court officials said. Specific details on his blood-alcohol level were not immediately available. The legal limit in Montana is .08.

Domuz is one of 36 observers with the Organization for Security and Cooperation in Europe dispersed across the U.S. to monitor and report on campaign activities, media coverage, voter registration and Election Day procedures for the midterm elections.

Thomas Rymer, a spokesman for the OSCE’s Office for Democratic Institutions and Human Rights, said all OSCE observers must follow a strict code of conduct that requires them to obey the laws of the country being observed and to comport themselves in a respectful and professional manner.

“This is unacceptable,” Rymer said of the charge against Domuz. “We are currently making arrangements to withdraw the observer from the field and immediately send him home.”

The OSCE observers work in two-person teams, and the second member of Domuz’s team also will depart Montana to work with the OSCE team in Washington, D.C., Rymer said.

The presence of the observers in Montana drew the attention of Montana Secretary of State Corey Stapleton, whose office sent out a notice last week to county election administrators to report any interactions they have with the observers.

Stapleton’s director of elections and voter services, Dana Corson, wanted to know a range of information from where the observers were staying to what information they were seeking.

Corson and Stapleton’s chief of staff, Christi Jacobsen, declined comment.

Formerly Funny Actor Jim Carrey Tweets Support for Beto O’Rourke… Cruz Destroys Him With Hilarious Response

Remember when Jim Carrey was funny? Yeah, neither do we.

Actor Jim Carrey — famous for playing a pet detective who talks out of his butt —and now, for his communist views, took to Twitter to post one of his pieces of “art” depicting Senator Ted Cruz burning, with his Democrat opponent, Beto O’Rourke watching.

Senator Ted Cruz, who has some of the best comebacks, tweeted the most hilarious response to Carrey’s gruesome image and comment:

Hollywood liberals all in for Beto. But (self-described socialist) Jim Carrey made a mistake here: Vampires are dead, and everyone knows the dead vote Democrat…

Home Resident Killed by Maryland Police Trying Confiscate His Guns

Maryland Governor Hogan disregarded veto requests and signed “red flag” bill (HB 1302) in Spring of 2018. Under that bill as it became law, virtually anyone can ask a law enforcement officer to file an ex parte petition with a state district court judge or commissioner and allege that the gun owner poses an immediate danger to himself/herself or others because (and only because) he or she possesses firearms. If the court issues the order, the police can show up on the doorstep and seize the person’s firearms without notice or warning.

All it takes is a family member, dating partner, or roommate to claim that someone is a danger to themselves or others to have his or her Second Amendment rights stripped away by a secret court hearing.

Right advocates predicted that this new movement of taking your rights with Red Flag Orders might have deadly consequences and called for vetos of this law and others in multiple states.

Keith Ellison Pictured With Portland Antifa Leader at Minnesota State Fair

On the heels of an unprecedented Minneapolis Police press conference this week in which officers warned citizens to not vote for Keith Ellison, photographs obtained by Big League Politics contributor Laura Loomer show Ellison and Luis Enrique Marquez, a notorious leader of the Portland ANTIFA who has a criminal record and has carried the Communist flag.

Ellison’s support of ANTIFA is no secret, but as a candidate for Attorney General, his relationship with a violent member of ANTIFA, which has been designated as a domestic terrorist organization by the US Department of State, is concerning.

As a result of his criminal actions as the leader of Portland ANTIFA, Luis Enrique Marquez was booked into the Multonomah County Jail and Conditionally released June 30, 2018 having been charged with two counts of theft (one 2nd degree and one 3rd degree) and 3rd degree assault per Jail Employee ID 93275.

Luis Enrique Marquez was one of those nine people arrested in what police described as violent protests.

Luis Enrique Marquez not only has a history of arrests, but he is the subject of several YouTube videos which display his ANTIFA associations and violent behavior. Again, this is who Keith Ellison was spotted hanging out with at the Minnesota State Fair. Sources who wish to remain anonymous for the sake of their safety told Big League Politics that Ellison spent over an hour with Luis Enrique Marquez, whose next court date is scheduled for November 28, 2018 according to Multonomah Court employee Anthony Tran.

Lowering the Voting Age to Sixteen

The Washington D.C. City Council will soon hold a vote on a bill that would lower the voting age to 16. The measure, which has already passed the Judiciary and Public Safety Committee by a margin of 3-0, will, unless sanity somehow reenters the council, likely pass.

The result will be a victory for the glories of democracy as suffrage is extended to a group with a high-school graduation rate of 42%.

Extending the privilege of voting to young people is never the scheme of careful consideration. Nobody who takes the art of civics seriously thinks it’s a wise idea to give younger people the vote; if anything, they see the standard age of 18 to be too young. If 18 wasn’t the earliest age for military eligibility, there’d be no reason to keep the voting age below 25.

But as Charles Cooke of National Review points out, there is legal consistency in maintaining the voting age at 18. It’s the same age you can buy a gun, die for your country, or even be tried as an adult. Being allowed to vote seems only fair.

Lowering the age to 16 is a crude attempt at injecting the voting populace with a more liberal bloc. Conservatism is an understanding for the aged, who appreciate the accrual of wisdom. Left-liberalism is for the young, who find no need for the hard-learned lessons of yesteryear and desire immediate change.

Aristotle said as much, writing in Nicomachean Ethics,

A young man is not a proper hearer of lectures on political science; for he is inexperienced in the actions that occur in life, but its discussions start from these and are about these; and, further, since he tends to follow his passions, his study will be vain and unprofitable, because the end aimed at is not knowledge but action.

Teenagers are tyrants with high time preferences and volatile emotional states.

Maryland: Cops Shoot Man to Death in His Home for Resisting Gun Confiscation

Americans who oppose this lunacy need to get out and vote GOP today like their lives depend on it

Police in the Democrat haven of Maryland shot and killed a man in his home on Monday while serving a “protective order” under a new law which allows them to seize people’s guns without due process.

Since the new gun confiscation law went into effect on October 1st, police have carried out 19 such confiscation orders, which comes out to around one such seizure every other day…

The subject of the protective order, Gary J. Willis, 60, answered his door in the 100 block of Linwood Ave. at 5:17 a.m. with a gun in his hand, Anne Arundel County police said. He initially put the gun down next to the door, but “became irate” when officers began to serve him with the order, opened the door and picked up the gun again, police said.

“A fight ensued over the gun,” said Sgt. Jacklyn Davis, a police spokeswoman.

One of the officers struggled to take the gun from Willis, and during the struggle the gun fired but did not strike anyone, police said. At that point, the other officer fatally shot Willis, police said…

This is what Democrats want for every state in America.

In the demographically transformed state of Georgia, Stacey Abrams wants to ban AR-15s and is open to gun confiscations:…

MI Newspaper Reporter Leaves Stunning, Accidental Voicemail for Mi GOP Sen Candidate John James…

“F**king John James … that would suck.”

Is She A Racist, A Liberal, Or A Racist Liberal?

A reporter for a Michigan newspaper called Michigan Senate Republican candidate John James’s campaign looking for an interview and thought she hung up the phone before leaving a voicemail saying “f*cking John James … that would suck.”

Brenda Battel, a reporter for Huron Daily Tribune, left the voicemail on James’s campaign offices phone number at 3:40 PM Monday, requesting the interview for Wednesday, the day after the Nov. 6 midterm elections. In the voicemail, she expresses her interest in interviewing James, believes she hung up the phone, and then goes on to curse about a possible James victory, saying she doesn’t think it will happen.

“I’m looking to set up an appointment with Mr. James for some time on Wednesday for a phone interview regarding the election results,” Battel continued. “I’m probably going to send an email over to the info@johnjamesforsenate.com with some details. Um, if you’d like to call me back, my number is … extension … Thank you.” —Daily Caller

Paul Craig Roberts: What This Election is Really About

It is about whether “the deplorables” have been brainwashed by the Establishment’s media whores and fail to support Trump in the House and Senate elections. If the Democrats, whose politics is Identity Politics, get the House and/or Senate, Trump will be completely impotent. The Establishment hopes to drive the lesson home to every future presidential candidate to never again appeal to the people over the vested interests of the Establishment.

In America democracy is a scam. The oligarchy rules, and the people, no matter how they suffer under the oligarch’s rule, must submit and accept. No more presidential candidates, please, who represent the people. This is the lesson that the Establishment hopes to teach the rabble in the midterm elections.

Reporter Fired After Caught on Tape Saying ‘F**k Could You Imagine John James Winning’

A reporter for a Michigan newspaper was fired Friday night after calling Michigan Senate Republican candidate John James’ campaign looking for an interview and thought she hung up the phone before leaving a voicemail saying “f***ing John James … that would suck.”

“I have listened to the voicemail left by Brenda Battel to Mr. James’ campaign, and find no reason to defend this behavior,” Huron Daily Tribune editor Kate Hessling said in a statement. “Brenda Battel’s employment has been immediately terminated.”

“The Huron Daily Tribune sincerely apologizes to Mr. James and to the public,” she continued. “These statements do not represent the views of the Tribune as a whole, nor do they reflect the actions of a responsible journalist.”

Secret LVMPD Officer Text Messages Revealed From Night of 1 October Shooting

The 5X5 News channel on YouTube has done an excellent job enhancing private police text messages captured by an officer body-worn camera on the night of the 1 October Las Vegas shooting in which 58 people were reported to be shot dead by a single shooter named Stephen Paddock.

In the video published on Thursday, an officer can be seen sending and receiving text messages in a private four person closed group and the messages appear to contain major intel from that night not known to others at the time.

One of the four officers names and phone numbers has been made visible after enhancement as the video’s introduction points out.

The first visible text message is from 2:30 a.m. on the morning of October 2. The message reads:

More people involved.

I don’t think it was only from the hotel. Not with that damage.

Another text says: “suspect.”

Additionally, images of a white male can be seen displayed on the screen. In one of the images, two younger white females can also be seen. It is unknown who these people are or how they tie in and that’s if they tie in at all.

It also looks as if the words “Video Gallery” appear above the images.

Security Manager Admits 1 October Shooter “Came Out of the Room and Went Down the Hallway”

“The guy came out of the room and went down the hallway and hit one of our officers.”

Mandalay Bay Cheif Security Operations Manager Tony Sottile told a Las Vegas Metropolitan Police Department officer sometime after 11:30 p.m. on the night of the 1 October massacre that a shooter had emerged into the 100-hallway from a 32nd-floor Vista Suite where he proceeded to move down the hallway possibly while firing rounds as Sottile appears in the footage to be motioning with his arms and hands…

If Sottile’s account is accurate, his encounter with a shooter marks another inconsistancy with the latest and greatest LVMPD investigative report in which never once was it mentioned in the report that Stephen Paddock or anyone else entered the hallway from the Vista Suite to open fire. In fact, it was always reported by the LVMPD that Paddock fired through the door of his 32nd-floor suit down the hallway striking Mandalay Bay Security Guard Jesus Campos in the leg. There was never mention of a shooter traversing down the hallway.

The 2018 Midterms: Christians vs. Communists

Long ago, from the past of a distant America, during another election year, a man named Ronald Reagan gave a speech that set him on a journey that would eventually lead to him becoming president of the United States. On October 27th, at the height of the presidential campaign of 1964, Ronald Reagan delivered a rousing speech at the GOP National Convention to support Barry Goldwater’s effort to receive the Republican Party’s nomination. While endorsing Goldwater, Reagan stressed his own convictions in his now famous speech, “A Time for Choosing” that is also known as “The Speech.” In this address, he argued:

We’re at war with the most dangerous enemy (former Soviet Union)that has ever faced mankind in his long climb from the swamp to the stars, and it’s been said if we lose that war, and in so doing lose this way of freedom of ours, history will record with the greatest astonishment that those who had the most to lose did the least to prevent its happening. Well I think it’s time we ask ourselves if we still know the freedoms that were intended for us by the Founding Fathers.

Reagan, previously a Democrat, had converted and become a Republican just two years before he gave that speech. Although today, he could be looked upon as one of those who “Walk Away” from the “Democratic” Party, Reagan often explained: “I didn’t leave the Democratic Party. The party left me.” Despite joining numerous Hollywood political groups that had leftist leanings, he had his own “Walk Away” moment because he realized that Communists were actively organizing such groups. He switched his political affiliations because he understood that Communism was a deeper extension of Socialism, and both had infiltrated California by the 1960s.

Unfortunately, Ronald Reagan’s realizations did not stop the advancement of Marxist ideology in California, nor the political organizing in the labor unions all across America.

Italy: Recover ICI Not Paid by Church Says ECJ

Montessori School, Radicals hail success of appeal

(ANSA) — Milan, November 6 — The European Court of Justice on Tuesday ordered Italy to recover ICI property tax not paid by the Catholic Church.

The ruling quashed a 2012 decision by the European Commission and an EU court sentence of 2016 that stated “the impossibility of recovering the aid because of organisational difficulties” with respect to non-commercial bodies like schools, clinics and hotels.

The ECJ judges said these circumstances constituted “mere internal difficulties in Italy”.

They rejected, however, an appeal on another property tax, IMU.

The heads of Rome’s Montessori School, which filed the appeal against the exemption for the Church’s non-commercial bodies, told ANSA “we’re very happy, it has been a long battle, but in the end David has beaten Goliath”.

They said “we waged this battle representing non-religious and democratic businesses which wanted to fight the privileges which distorted and still distort the country’s economic life”, said the directors of the school which has some 150 students in Rome’s Balduina district.

“This is an historic sentence,” said one of the school’s two lawyers, Edoardo Gambaro, told ANSA.

Together with another lawyer, Francesco Mazzocchi, he presented the appeal to the ECJ.

Gambaro said “if Italy were not to recover the aid (for the Church), it would pave the way for an infraction proceeding (by the European Commission)”.

“This would have high costs for Italian citizens,” he told ANSA.

The Italian Radical Party, which has long campaigned to make the Church pay property tax on its non-commercial buildings, said “the Court gave justice and we want to dedicate this victory to (late leader Marco) Pannella, who taught us all what a fight for rights means”.

The party presented the first appeal against the Church not paying ICI 12 years ago.

Socialist Party leader Riccardo Nencini urged the government to “move to get the ICI back”.

He said it amounted to at least four billion euros.

But Italian Bishops Conference (CEI) Secretary-General Stefano Russo said the commercial activities of the Catholic Church like hotels are duty bound to pay taxes but this should not affect services to the community.

Russo said the ECJ sentence “recognises the tax exempt status of not-for-profit activities”.

He reportedly beat her because she is a female and not a male as he wanted. He also subjected his wife — who he married when she was 15 in Pakistan — to violence, including by kicking, punching, belting and raping her. The woman and her daughter are now in the care of social services.

Italy: Man Gets 10 Yrs for Raping Woman, Beating Boyfriend in Milan

He had been in jail since March after raping a 19-year-old woman and beating up her 23-year-old boyfriend while threatening them with a pistol that later was found to be a toy gun. The two students had been in an isolated area of an outlying area of the city in a car.

The girl had recognized their attacker from a photo he posted on Facebook.

The Colombian did not have official papers to be in Italy and the judge has ordered that he be deported after his sentence is served. He had previously been reported to the police for carrying a knife.

He was charged with robbery, rape and having kept the two students hostage for almost two hours that night.

The man denied the charges, saying he had approached the couple for a lighter and that he had reacted after a rude response by the man and that he had taken hallucinogenic mushrooms that night and could not remember almost anything.

The judge sentenced the man to pay damages to the two victims, setting a provisional figure of 25,000 euros for each.

The boy’s father said that he approved of the sentence given.

Merkel’s Flawed Legacy

by Srdja Trifkovic

Angela Merkel announced on October 29 that she would make a two-stage exit from the political scene. She is first giving up her chairmanship of the Christian Democratic Union (CDU), which will select a new leader at its party congress on December 7-8. She is to step down as chancellor next, but not before the end of her fourth term in the fall of 2021. Her plan is characteristically shrewd. It may not work.

The Leaderin’s hoped-for successor is a steadfast Merkel loyalist Annegret Kramp-Karrenbauer, CDU’s secretary-general. The 56-year-old former Saarland prime minister managed Merkel’s 2017 election campaign and exudes about the same level of charisma as her mentor. A staunch CDU establishmentarian (which translates into someone to the left of Bernie Sanders), she has supported Merkel’s open-door immigration policy ever since the migrant tsunami of 2015. Her social program is indistinguishable from that of Merkel’s social-democratic coalition partners (SPD). Her selection would ensure further realignment of German politics, to the likely benefit of the Alternative for Germany (Alternative für Deutschland, AfD).

The initial challenge from what passes for the Right inside the CDU came in the person of Jens Spahn, health minister critical of Merkel’s policies. On all really important issues Spahn is eminently mainstream, however. He wants a European Union “with strong institutions . . . with the surrender of national sovereignty in areas where we are stronger together, but as a network of sovereign nation states.” Immigration “is an issue that in the eyes of many voters has not been ended or solved,” he says, but offers no solution and insists that “there can never be cooperation with left- and right-wing parties that fuel anti-American resentment, adore Russian autocrats, who are undermining European unification . . . “ To Spahn, Austria’s ruling coalition — which includes the Freedom Party (FPÖ)—should be a “warning, not a role model.”

In a two-way contest Kramp-Karrenbauer would easily win. Enter Friedrich Merz, ex-CDU/CSUgroup parliamentary leader who retreated to the back benches in 2005 after falling out with Merkel…

Outgoing German Spy Chief Fired for Calling Social Democrats ‘Radical Left’, Security Policy ‘Naive’

Germany’s outgoing intelligence chief has been forced into early retirement over a speech he gave in private denouncing “radical-left forces” in Chancellor Angela Merkel’s coalition.

Hans-Georg Maassen had been set to take up a special advisory role in the interior ministry after left-wing political pressure saw him fired from his role as chief of the Federal Office for the Protection of the Constitution (BfV) in September.

But on Monday, Federal Interior Minister Horst Seehofer announced he had retired the veteran civil servant from all offices with immediate effect, asserting Maassen had “crossed a line” with comments made during a farewell speech to intelligence chiefs in October, which was leaked to the German media.

‘Polexit is Possible’: Eurocrat Says Poland Could Leave the EU Like Britain

Alluding to then-Prime Minister David Cameron not expecting the UK would leave the EU, Tusk said he hoped Poles would “come to their senses” and accept their place in the bloc before they accidentally find themselves leaving it, reports Reuters.

Sir Tim Berners-Lee Launches ‘Magna Carta for the Web’ To Save Internet From Abuse

Sir Tim Berners-Lee has launched a “Magna Carta for the web”, warning that tech giants must change their ways to save the online world from the dangerous forces they have unleashed.

Sir Tim, who invented the World Wide Web in 1989, called for a “revolution” in how the internet is regulated and monetised in order to stem abuse, political polarisation and fake news.

The 63-year-old was speaking at the Web Summit in Lisbon to launch a new “contract for the web” which asks internet companies to uphold a set of principles such as protecting privacy and being transparent about their algorithms.

Facebook and Google have backed the contract, which will be agreed in detail next year, despite both companies being mentioned by its creator as examples of how “the web we know and love” is under threat.

Sir Tim said: “For the first 15 years, most people just expected the web to do great things. They thought ‘there’ll be good and bad, that is humanity, but if you connect humanity with technology, great things will happen…

“What could go wrong? Well, duh: all kinds of things have gone wrong since. We have fake news, we have problems with privacy, we have problems with abuse of personal data, we have people being profiled in a way that they can be manipulated by clever ads.”

Sir Tim, who developed the Web as a “side project” while working at the Cern research laboratory in Switzerland in the Eighties, has become increasingly vocal about what he sees as a perversion of his original vision.

Salvini says working on case ‘with discretion’

(ANSA) — Rome, November 6 — The husband of Asia Bibi, a Pakistani Christian woman condemned to death by hanging for blasphemy eight years ago but recently acquitted by the Supreme Court, but who cannot leave the country because of fundamentalist Islamic protests, on Tuesday appealed to Italy for help in getting out of Pakistan.

China’s Corporate Espionage Looms Large in Its Battle With the U.S.

Concerns about Chinese corporate espionage are rising to the fore in the United States. Late last week, senior officials in the U.S. Department of Justice announced an initiative to counter the major threat posed by Chinese spying that has raised alarm in both Washington and farther afield. The espionage (and counterespionage) struggle between the great powers spans a number of areas, including those falling into traditional national security categories such as intelligence collection efforts that target military plans and preparations, not to mention diplomatic initiatives and stances, sanctions and trade negotiations. The U.S. government’s recent release of court documents and statements has shined a light on Chinese efforts to acquire critical technologies, as well as the U.S. efforts to counter them. Such counteractions are just the latest salvo in the brewing battle between China and the United States, and given that Beijing is likely to alter its strategy in response, they won’t be the last.

Take Battisti Away, Bolsonaro Tells Italy

He’s a criminal, Brazil’s president-elect quoted as saying

(ANSA) — Pescara, November 6 — Brazilian President-elect Jair Bolsonaro on Tuesday reportedly reiterated his desire to see former leftist terrorist Cesare Battisti return to Italy.

Bolsonaro had pledged to extradite Battisti during the election campaign. “We already have lots of bandits in Brazil, now take away this criminal,” Bolsonaro told Italian Ambassador Antonio Bernardini at a ceremony for the 25th anniversary of the ‘Comunità Italiana’ Italian-Brazilian magazine, reporters for the publication said.

“If it were for me, Battisti would already be in Italy. He was protected by leftwing governments, but that won’t happen again.

“We know how hard this case has been for Italy”. Battisti is wanted to serve out several life sentences for murders in the so-called ‘Years of Lead’ of leftist and rightist terrorism.

He has said he does not fear being extradited as he is protected by Brazilian justice.

Battisti, whose extradition was formerly halted by ex-president Luis Ignacio Lula da Silva, has always denied committing murder.

This video is so alarming that it almost doesn’t look real. We investigated further and found Getty photos from this scene via USA Today. There are 216 photos of the caravan that are pretty shocking. It’s mostly young men and they are riding on big trucks or hitching rides however they can. There is more than one caravan moving towards us. One has reached Mexico City.

10 thoughts on “Gates of Vienna News Feed 11/6/2018

  1. ” In other news, there’s the midterm election results, but I’ve been dreading them so much that I didn’t look at them yet.”

    Dreading? Exactly, You stole my word and sentiments. Praying that The good and common sense would prevail in a significant LANDSLIDE. But no.

    After all atrocities across Europe May, Merkel, Macron, and their counterparts in Sweden, Holland, Norway, Denmark, Aussie, NZ, . . . are elected as if nothing had happened.
    Seems “democratic” elections are like a lottery.

    Keep USA safe from jihadis, secure the borders, energize the economy, equality for all, sensible foreign policy, fighting fake new, all of this under Pres. Trump who shows reason and sound judgment about the issues that will benefit USA in the long run, have no significance to many.

    Non-angelika Merkel won as if by a lottery while we expected her to lose when Germany was in turmoil.

  2. I awoke to an America that has a different face, one with pride and arrogance, one that is self-serving with no thought of the consequences of the choices that have been made. It seems that in the near future the only thing that will separate America from Europe will be about 5,000 miles of ocean.

  3. “Mandalay Bay Cheif Security Operations Manager Tony Sottile told a Las Vegas Metropolitan Police Department officer sometime after 11:30 p.m. on the night of the 1 October massacre that a shooter had emerged into the 100-hallway from a 32nd-floor Vista Suite where he proceeded to move down the hallway possibly while firing rounds as Sottile appears in the footage to be motioning with his arms and hands…”

    The whole bloated, ragged sentence/paragraph above is a perfect example of “JD’s” writing. It’s so packed with contradictions, meaningless vagaries, grossly-misused words, grammatical clumsiness, punctuation blunders, and even a simple misspelling (“Cheif”??) that I, quite honestly, would have been ASHAMED to hand such gibberish in to my 5th-grade teacher.

    Baron, PLEASE DUMP [ad hominem redacted] “JD,” *all* of [ad hominem redacted] darken *every* otherwise-illuminating article, in *every* GOV post in which they appear. PLEASE STOP wasting your readers’ valuable time and freedom with JD’s [ad hominem redacted]!

    • Joe Jew, thank you for volunteering to send me good, reliable, accurate articles for the news feed! I could really use some.

      But JD didn’t write that excerpt you quoted, someone at “intellihub” (whatever that is) did. JD just excerpted from it and sent it to me with the link.

      The thing about the news feed is that it is reader-generated. People send me things they like, and I glance at them to make sure they aren’t totally obnoxious (or, more fully, as each news feed says: “We check each entry to make sure it is relatively interesting, not patently offensive, and at least superficially plausible. The link to the original is included with each item’s title. Further research and verification are left to the reader.”).

      I don’t have time to vet everything thoroughly to make sure that it’s something that I like, nor do I want to. The point of the news feed is that it contains what our READERS like. And if you don’t like something, the solution is easy: you don’t have to read it!

      I don’t mind that JD sends badly-written paranoia. That’s what he likes.

      As for the possibility that his choices might hurt our reputation, I’ll say what I’ve said for many years in answer to similar complaints: I spit on the grave of my reputation.

  4. The head of the FSB Bortnikov: Migrant attacks lead to an increase in radical youth groups

    “A new fact can be an acute public reaction to migrants committing terrorist attacks or actions that go beyond the norms and rules of conduct adopted in specific countries,” he said Wednesday at the opening of a meeting of heads of special services, security agencies and law enforcement.

    In addition, according to him, “militants penetrating into migration flows deploy extensive propaganda and recruiting work among the local population.”

    “As a result, as a response, the activity of various social groups and radical youth, including fan groups, groups that are supporters of right-wing and left-wing extremism and calling for force actions against migrants and immigrants who practice Islam is dramatically increased,” said the head of the FSB.
