ABC’s Karl: Mueller Report Shows ‘Significant’ Trump-Russian ‘Contact, ‘ ‘Collusion’

Thursday on ABC’s News special coverage of the release of special counsel Robert Mueller’s report, chief Washington correspondent for the network Jonathan Karl said the report details “significant contact,” even “collusion,” between Donald Trump’s presidential campaign and Russia.

Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez Urged That Cop-Killing Terrorist Judith Clark be Paroled

The wildly underappreciated Tina Trent hits it out of the park again.

In the below new post from her website, TinaTrent.com, Dr. Trent points out that the Left’s shiny new plaything du jour, Congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-N.Y.), has come to the aid of a dusty old folk heroine of the Left, communist terrorist and cop-killer Judith Clark. .

You see, Ocasio-Cortez vouched for the unrepentant militant, urging she be released from prison. Why? Because at root there isn’t much difference between the two women. Of course AOC would want Clark freed. It makes perfect sense.

As More States Confiscate Guns, Dad Shoots Pedophile Who Broke Into Daughter’s Room

Every time we hear the argument about “how society doesn’t need guns to protect themselves” another example surfaces of a member of society protecting themselves with a gun. Recently, on NPR, a guest claimed that she didn’t understand why someone would need a gun because she had never heard of anyone preventing a crime or defending themselves with one. Obviously this is a complete farce, not true, and as the incident below illustrates, it happens quite often.

Tina Burton explained to WDRB this week that she was horrified when she woke up around 7 a.m. on April 14 to a text from her daughter saying that 38-year-old Donald Oliver was in her room — getting naked. He’d broken in, made his way to the 12-year-old’s bedroom and began stripping as if he was preparing to rape her.

“He got undressed in my daughter’s room,” Burton said. “Like, what was your intentions? … You are sick.”

Given Oliver’s history of sexual abuse, the threat was grave.

Carlson: Mueller Report ‘Single Most Humiliating Thing’ To Happen to White House Press Corps in History of U.S.

Thursday on Fox News Channel’s “Tucker Carlson Tonight,” host Tucker Carlson castigated the Washington, D.C. press corps for its handling of the Department of Justice special counsel probe headed by Robert Mueller on the heels of the release of the report generated by the probe.

Carlson accused the media of lying to the American public and offered examples of reporters congratulating themselves for reporting despite the report claiming no collusion between President Donald Trump’s 2016 campaign and Russia.

He called the handling of the Mueller Report release “humiliating” for the White House press corps.

“These are hysterical children,” Carlson said. “They should not be in journalism, but they are. In fact, they run journalism, and they have no plans on giving up their power. The Mueller Report is probably the single most humiliating thing that has ever happened to the White House press corps in the history of this country. So how did reporters in Washington respond today when it finally came out? Well, they did what they do best — they celebrated themselves.”

Holding Politicians Accountable and the Danger of Political Correctness

by Amil Imani

America is faced with an insidious, multifaceted, and the deadly threat of Islamic fundamentalism. Since Islam has been around for centuries, there is a tendency to ignore or even deny the threat it poses to humanity. Various concessions are made, some of them as good faith offerings and some in the hope of placating devout Muslims. Yet, concessions to threats are appeasement. And appeasement has never solved any problems. They only whet the appetite of the aggressor, give it more power, and make it even more dangerous.

Frankly, if the candidate of your choice has no knowledge of Islam’s Stealth Jihad that currently moves at the speed of light in the US and refuses to be direct and transparent with his constituents, that candidate has absolutely no business to run for office. In fact, he would be a disaster. It falls into your hands alone to decide whether you to vote for the survival of America or for your favorite candidate no matter what.

You must keep in mind that the vote you cast will not simply replace one politician with another. At this point in time, every vote has great existential implications. Whether we like it or not, we are truly in a war of survival in the era of Islamic terrorism. You cannot negotiate co-existence—live and let live—with Muslims. Eradication of the Islamic ethos is a daunting task, since Islam is truly a virulent persistent pandemic disease. Muslims have been deeply indoctrinated since they were babies. They will never assimilate. You need to elect a person who will stand and fight against Islamism and not cut and run!

Is the Mueller Report the Son of the Steele Dossier?

by Diana West

Hesitant about working my way through the Mueller report, I found myself gratified to hear Rep. Devin Nunes’s assessment of the thing.

According to Nunes, there is only one item of relevance in the entire 450-page document. While it is an item of significance, it confirms something many have long suspected.

Nunes explained that on page 11 there is a veiled disclosure to the effect that the “scope memo,” the directive Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein gave Special Counsel Robert Mueller in August 2017, included “the Steele dossier, the Clinton dirt, the Clinton-paid-for dirt as part of the memo for the special counsel that directed the special counsel what to do.”

Nunes elaborated on the implications:

“The Mueller report ignored a wide range of abuses committed during the FBI’s investigation of the Trump campaign. And now, with the revelation that the Special Counsel was authorized at the outset to investigate Carter Page for allegedly colluding with Russians to hack the election, it’s clear that false allegations from the Steele dossier played a major role not only in the FISA warrant application on Page, but in the appointment of the Special Counsel as well.” (Emphasis added.)

As numb as we are to the machinations of the anti-Trump conspiracy, this is a crowning outrage…

Windows 8 Will No Longer Get App Updates After This Summer

Last year, Microsoft announced when it would be killing app updates and distribution in the Windows Store for Windows Phone 8.x and Windows 8.x. At the time, the blog post stated that Windows Phone 8.x devices would stop receiving app updates after July 1, 2019, while Windows 8.x devices would get app updates through July 1, 2023.

However, it seems as though plans have changed a little bit, as the blog post has quietly been updated earlier this month. As spotted by Nawzil on Twitter, Microsoft has changed the wording in the post to state that Windows 8 devices will stop getting updates for their apps at the same time as Windows Phone 8.x, that is, July 1 of this year. Windows 8.1 devices will continue to receive updates through the previously announced date in 2023.

Delingpole: ‘Climate Change: The Facts’ Was the BBC’s Biggest Lie Ever

The increasingly unwatchable and slavishly woke BBC plumbed new depths last night. It gave a prime time slot to a piece of environmental propaganda so blatant, shameless, and dishonest it might just as well have been a political broadcast on behalf of Extinction Rebellion.

Even the programme’s title was a lie.

Climate Change: The Facts was a farrago of alarmist cliches, exaggerations, and untruths which have been debunked on numerous occasions.

It lied about the cause of wildfires; it lied about heatwaves; it lied about storms and floods; it lied about polar melting; it lied about sea levels; it lied about coral reefs; it lied about droughts.

Yet many viewers may well have been taken in because the programme was presented with breathy earnestness and apparent authority by the doyen of TV wildlife ‘experts’ Sir David Attenborough. And accompanied by the kind of dramatic footage and stirring music guaranteed to bypass the brain and appeal directly to the emotions — as all the most effective propaganda does.

Fmr. Notre Dame Chief Architect: Ancient Oak Doesn’t Burn Like That

Expert casts doubt on official narrative

A former chief architect and general inspector of French historical monuments has cast doubts on the official narrative that the Notre Dame fire was likely an electrical short that set the iconic cathedral ablaze.

Benjamin Mouton, who served as Chief Architect of Historic Monuments in France and oversaw restoration work of Notre Dame until 2013, says that it is highly unlikely an electrical short circuit took place, and that it would take an extraordinary effort to ignite the ancient oak of the cathedral.

“So, you’re telling us that this type of timber doesn’t burn like that?” Mouton was asked by an LCI host.

“Oak that is 800-years-old is very hard — try to burn it,” Mouton said. “Old oak, it is not easy at all. You would need a lot of kindling to succeed… It stupefies me.”

Asked to present an explanation for how the blaze spread so quickly and with such strength, Mouton asserted that there were no additional precautions that could have been taken to ensure such a “quick” incineration could be prevented.

“In the Nineties, we updated all the electrical wiring of Notre Dame,” Mouton said. “So there is no possibility of a short circuit. We updated to conform with the contemporary norms, even going very far — all the detection and protection systems against fire in the cathedral.”

[Comment: Official narrative is a lie. Since the building is still closed, the conclusion of electrical short is a political conclusion, not an investigative conclusion. ]

Notre Dame: Symbol of a Failing Culture

Like many I was horrified on so many levels by the news of the fire which engulfed the iconic Notre Dame cathedral in Paris.

The thing that makes me truly sad is that my first reaction to the news wasn’t basic human safety concerns. My first reaction was to jump to the political ramifications and ask cui bono?

Who benefits from this?

In this hyper-politicized world, every act has an agenda. And with so many false flags, failing governments, simmering (or actually boiling) culture wars and rampant ideological insanity it is nearly impossible to dismiss them.

Meanwhile, one of the great symbols and repositories of human achievement was nearly destroyed by either carelessness, neglect, malicious intent or a sinister combination of all three.

And people were cheering this.

While I’m lamenting my cynical initial reaction there were people all across the globe cheering the destruction of an integral part of human history.

That should frighten you.

It shows just how deeply ingrained the current divides are.

It shows how fallen and corrupt of spirit the culture has become.

It’s religious significance is secondary to this. If it was just an expression of the rivalry between Islam and Christianity that would be regrettable if understandable.

What’s worse to me is descendants of those that built Notre Dame cheering this event because they’ve been inculcated to hate religion of all forms by their Marxist education.

Notre Dame vs. European Secularism

Centuries of the European faithful have sacrificed to build exquisite monuments to their faith that subsequent generations would cherish as much as they did. It was a legacy that unfortunately secular Europe has destroyed for decades. The transformation has been visible to any visitor who cared to observe the change.

Secular Europeans today value venerable old churches as cash cows, to the extent that they provide millions of visitors annually who spend a lot of tourist money to marvel and admire their remarkable history, art and architecture, while climbing to the top for a breathtaking view of the surrounding city. Each visitor must pay a fee to climb to the top. .

According to the CIA World Factbook, the population of France in 2014 was approximately 66.3 million. France is mainly Catholic Christian, with 63-66% Christians, 23-28% secular people, and 7-9% Muslims. Some areas of Paris like St. Dennis are 40% populated by African Muslims.

There are pockets left of the faithful who are still attending church on a regular basis while the rest may attend Easter services, Christmas, weddings, baptisms, and burials.

While strolling in during service, I often noticed with regret the small crowd of worshippers and their advanced age. The young Europeans seemed to be missing among the parishioners. They were found outside, enjoying their atheist existence devoid of God. The financial donations came from tourists and the burning candles were lit by visitors in memory of the loved ones who had departed the earth.

Notre Dame Fire May be Occult Ritual Says Investigative Journalist a Look Into the Cause of the Tragic Inferno

Leo Zagami joins Alex Jones live via Skype to lay out how the Notre Dame fire may or may not be an occult ritual, predicted by Nostradamus in one of his infamous quatrains, that is being used to usher in a new era of “Chrislam” where Christians and Muslims are forced into a culture collision.

Zagami also breaks down the speculation surrounding the discovery of a mysterious figure on live television cameras walking across a very high level of the Cathedral while the spire and wooden elements burned on the other side of the great Notre Dame.

Alex Jones presents a video of Lou Dobbs during his Fox program where he warns viewers that the French investigation into what exactly started the Notre Dame fire may be covering up the very real possibility of arson for what he calls, “political reasons.”

[Comment: Am reminded of William Guy Carr’s book, Pawns In the Game. Written in 1952 the book outlines a globalist plot to trigger WW3 between western Christianity and Islamic world. Out of the ashes, like their fictitious phoenix, would arise the globalist one world “benevolent” government and their one world “religion — really just luciferianism. It would not be surprising to learn those who started the fire were operatives of deep state apparatus seeking to trigger this conflict. Many of the globalists are luciferians, so to them this would be an occult ritual. And a double bluff — knowingly lie that it is “electrical”, to get public to believe it was islamic, while it was actually done by elites foot soldiers.]

Chinese State Media Reveals Mysterious Hypersonic Aircraft

China’s China Central Television has briefly revealed the country’s new hypersonic aircraft under development. According to the report, the China Aerospace Science and Technology Corporation is currently working on a hypersonic vehicle, which is capable of traveling on the speeds of about 5-20 mach for about 5 hours.

Source: CCTV

China’s aggressive push into hypersonic technology began in early 2018, when Chinese researchers first revealed a novel design for an ultra-fast plane they say will be able to take dozens of people and tonnes of cargo — “anything from flowers to bombs, and likewise, passengers could be tourists or military special forces” — from Beijing to New York in about two hours.

The plane would travel around 6,000km/h (3,700mph) or about five times faster than the speed of sound, according to the team, which is also “involved in China’s top-secret hypersonic weapons programme,” according to the South China Morning Post. Today’s current journey from Beijing to New York depending on the jet stream is roughly 13 to 14 hours. An 80% reduction in travel time is a game changer for civilian aviation, but also a red flag if the aircraft is converted into a hypersonic heavy bomber.

“It will take only a couple of hours to travel from Beijing to New York at hypersonic speed,” head of hypersonic research Cui Kai wrote in a paper this month in Physics, Mechanics and Astronomy, published by Science China Press.

The team said they had tested a scaled-down prototype of the hypersonic plane in a wind tunnel at the Chinese Academy of Sciences in Beijing. Researchers carried out aerodynamics evaluations on the aircraft pushing it to 8,600km/h (5343 mph) and discovered it performed exceptionally well, with low drag and high lift.

A new clothing line features shirts that allow men to proclaim that they are “cucks” who share their wives and girlfriends with other men.

The CuckAndBull shop features dozens of designs, including a t-shirt that says “CUCK — proud sponsor of a hotwife” and one for women that says “my husband likes to watch”.

Another t-shirt which says “BULL” appears to be mainly modeled by black men, while another, worn by a white model, says “Sissy Husband”.

[Comment: Yet another assault on the western male psyche — designed to turn western men into eunuchs that are incapable of defending their nation.]

Time-Traveling AOC Delivers “How I Saved the World” Message From the Future

While Ocasio-Cortez trumpets how in 2019 she entered the most “diverse” Congress in history, every representative “depicted in the video is female. The ‘children’ from her district are all female. All the fat-cat oil and banking and political figures she demonizes are white men,” American Thinker also reports.

The site continues, “Writing for the Jacobin magazine in February 2019, the film’s writer, Kate Aronoff, called America’s energy CEOs ‘mass murderers.’ The artist incorporates this sentiment and the message ‘white men are the bad guys’ in the film’s drawings. The anti-capitalist, anti-corporation theme runs through the video from start to finish.”

Just as how “diversity” here, Newspeak-style, excludes certain groups, this is a complete inversion of reality. It’s not just that Ocasio-Cortez’ Green Leap Forward would have an estimated price tag of $93 trillion, four times our national debt. It’s that the “whole climate crisis is not only Fake News; it’s Fake Science,” as former president of Greenpeace Canada Patrick Moore put it; moreover, pursuing Ocasio-Cortez’ prescriptions globally could “result in the death of nearly all humans on Earth,” as he also warned.

Unfortunately, while it’s easy to poke fun at the congresswoman (and sometimes justifiable), demagoguery that could kill millions is no laughing matter.

Earth Day Network Wrong to Connect Extinctions With Global Warming

You have no reason to fear global warming-induced species extinction. We should focus our efforts on protecting wildlife from real human threats, not fictitious ones.

Earth Day Network wrong to connect extinctions with global warmingMonday is Earth Day, an annual event celebrated globally since 1970. Dedicated to demonstrating support for environmental protection, this year’s Earth Day includes events in over 193 countries, coordinated by the Earth Day Network (EDN).

For Earth Day 2019, EDN is concentrating on species extinction. That appears to be a good change from the years EDN focused on the highly debatable issue of dangerous man-made climate change. However, EDN lists climate change as the first cause of the supposed extinction problem. On their Web site, they assert: .

“The unprecedented global destruction and rapid reduction of plant and wildlife populations are directly linked to causes driven by human activity: climate change, deforestation, habitat loss, trafficking and poaching, unsustainable agriculture, pollution and pesticides…”

In reality, there is no meaningful, real data to support the contention that “unprecedented global destruction and rapid reduction of plant and wildlife populations” is occurring. Regardless, linking extinctions to the past century’s climate change makes no sense. Despite recent claims that the Australian brown rat is the first mammal to have been killed off by human-induced climate change, not a single species has been shown to even be threatened or endangered by so-called man-made global warming.

Solar Storm Alert: Earth to be Bombarded by Solar Particles in a Few Days

There is an upcoming solar storm expected this weekend. Researchers have noticed a sunspot that will bombard the Earth with solar particles on Monday.

Sunspots are patches of darkness on the Sun which are caused by an underlying magnetism beneath the surface. A solar storm occurs when that magnetism bubbles up and is released in the form of solar flares, which spew cosmic particles into space. Earth is in the path of these particles, so we can expect an exceptional aural display at the poles soon!

One thought on “Gates of Vienna News Feed 4/19/2019

  1. Emmanuel Aranda remains an enigma. Is he Chicago-born where he terrorized patrons in a restaurant, or from a foreign land? Does he have parents? Did he attend any school? His sister is in Minnesota but she doesn’t have a name?

    Why the cover up as a 5 year old white boy fights for his life?

    Why do our gendarme hide everything bad about bad people, same as the French do?
