Gates of Vienna News Feed 5/16/2019

Last year an Oklahoma woman named Taheerah Ahmad tried to murder her 11-year-old daughter by stabbing her at least 100 times. Ms. Ahmad then set her house on fire and abducted one of her other daughters. She has been convicted on multiple felony counts, and today a judge sentenced her to serve three concurrent life terms plus ten years for arson.

In other news, the European Court of Justice has ruled that migrants must not be deported even if they are known security threats, in cases where they may face torture in their country of origin.

Brandon Smith: America Will Lose the Trade War Because That is What Globalists Want to Happen

For globalists, the great prize is, of course, OPEN global economic management (rather than covert management), a one world currency and cashless society, as well global government. They want a veritable worldwide feudal plantation state — and they want the masses to embrace it willingly, or perhaps even beg for it. To obtain this prize, they will need a considerable economic disaster. The US economy and the dollar would have to be undermined, for Americans would not consent to global governance as long as our society remains relatively affluent and comfortable.

But how is this being accomplished by the elites…? And, what does the trade war have to do with their plans?

Global Banking Elites And The Controlled Demolition Of The US

I have been writing extensively on the controlled demolition of the US economy for some time now. In January of 2018 I predicted in my article ‘Party While You Can — Central Bank Ready To Pop The Everything Bubble’ that Jerome Powell and the Federal Reserve would pursue policy tightening and would continue until the bubble in fundamentals, corporate debt, consumer debt, housing, retail, stock markets, etc. collapsed. So far I have been proven correct; the fundamentals are plunging, and only stock markets remain. In the 2nd quarter of 2019 the Fed is still cutting assets exponentially from its balance sheet and still refuses to pull interest rates back from their neutral rate of inflation, despite the predictions of many in the mainstream and alternative media.

The Fed has used the tactic of addictive stimulus measures and artificially low interest rates to create massive financial bubbles in the past. And, they almost always use tightening policies in times of economic weakness to deliberately pop those bubbles. For example, this is exactly what happened at the onset of the Great Depression. As former Fed Chairman Ben Bernanke openly admitted in 2002 in an address in honor of Milton Friedman:…

Donald Trump is following almost the exact same path as Herbert Hoover, and Trump’s trade war with China is being used by the banking elites as cover for their sabotage of the US economy. In the end, it will be Trump and all of his “populist” followers that will get the blame for the destabilization of our financial structure. The central bankers have a perfect scapegoat.

But how could the banking elites and globalists possibly predict Trump’s behavior in order to take advantage of it? Well, if you look at Trump’s background as well as the number of elites he has placed within his own cabinet, the reality if the situation becomes clear: Trump is a puppet, and always has been.

The World’s Central Banks Are Buying Gold at the Fastest Pace in 6 Years!

The central banks of the world have been buying up gold at the fastest rate in 6 years. This is flashing warning signs for the future of the United States dollar.

Central banks (the Federal Reserve) and foreign governments hold literally trillions of dollars of reserves which they traditionally they acquire by buying U.S. government debt. To big institutions and banks, U.S. government debt is considered as an equivalent to cash and they use it as a form of money. U.S. debt is, therefore, extremely liquid. In fact, the $22 trillion US debt market is the biggest and most liquid market in the world.

More importantly, central banks hold U.S. dollars because that’s the global standard: the U.S. dollar has been the world’s primary international reserve currency for seventy-five years. But it sure looks like the elitists of the world want to buy a lot of gold removing it from circulation amongst the public.

We Have 3 Years Before the National Debt “Death Spiral”

According to the U.S. Treasury Department’s Office of Debt Management, the U.S. government is just five years away from the point of no return. With the national debt spiraling quickly out of control, there are only a few years left before every single dollar the government borrows will go toward funding interest payments on the national debt.

The Independent Blog said that the main takeaway from the Debt Management Office’s Fiscal Year 2019 Q1 Report, which featured the Office of Management and Budget’s latest projection of the U.S. government’s borrowing from the public, is shown in the chart below:

2A Attorney: 70% of N.J. Gun Laws Could Go Away if SCOTUS Takes Up This Case on May 23rd.

WASHINGTON, D.C. — There’s a major challenge to New Jersey’s gun control regime which could get taken up by the U.S. Supreme Court. A decision will be made on May 23rd.

The Association of New Jersey Rifle & Pistol Club previously initiated Rogers v. Grewal, a challenge to New Jersey’s restriction on carry licenses, and the case has worked its way through the federal judiciary. Next week, the Supreme Court will finally hold a conference at which time the Justices will sit around a giant conference table, discuss the points of law implicated by cases awaiting action, and ultimately vote on any pending petitions of certiorari (a request for SCOTUS to review a lower court’s decision).

Bank-Card-Slurping Malware Sneaks Into Forbes’ Mag Subscription Website

The Magecart credit-card-skimming malware that is the bane of internet shoppers has been spotted again, this time on the Forbes magazine subscription website.

The infection was clocked by net security watcher Troy Mursch at around 0400 UTC on Wednesday. It appears hackers unknown somehow installed malicious JavaScript on forbesmagazine.com so that any bank card details entered into the site by would-be-subscribers would be siphoned off to another web server to be used later by crooks and fraudsters.

Bernie Tells College Students Climate Change Will Cause ‘International Havoc and War’

Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-VT) said at a rally to promote the Green New Deal at Howard University in Washington, DC, on Monday night that climate change is an “existential threat” that, if not stopped will lead to “international havoc and war.”

Climate change, Sanders said, is considered around the world a national security issue “because if people cannot grow the crops they need, if people cannot find clean water to drink, there will be massive migrations of people all over the world. It will put increased pressure on limited natural resources and cause international havoc and war.”

Sanders joined Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY), who introduced the Green New Deal resolution in February, at the rally. The proposal calls for a radical transformation of the United States economy and infrastructure, including ending air travel, cattle ranching, and fossil fuel production.

It also guarantees jobs and universal health care.

[Comment: “Boys and girls what Sanders is pushing is called Communism. Now lets review the historical horrors of communism…” That is what teachers should be telling students after Sanders speech. Instead teachers at university will be gushing with praise of Sanders.]

Christian Student Forced to Write Islamic Conversion Creed Appeals Case to Supreme Court

During the 2014-2015 school year, a Christian teenage girl was forced to recite the Islamic conversion creed — the Shahada — in writing for her 11th-grade class. She was also taught that “Most Muslims’ faith is stronger than the average Christian.” The Thomas More Law Center (TMLC) sued the school responsible, and the Fourth Circuit Court of Appeals ruled with the school. TMLC appealed to the Supreme Court, filing a Writ of Certiorari on Monday.

Colorado School Shooting Suspects Appear in Court to Face Murder Charges

Two students suspected of shooting nine classmates, one fatally, in their Colorado charter school appeared in court Wednesday to face dozens of criminal charges that include murder, attempted murder, theft and arson.

The parents of the teen who was killed in the attack looked on in court before heading to their son’s memorial service. Senior Kendrick Castillo was just days from graduating when he was slain while trying to stop one of the gunmen during the May 7 attack at the STEM School Highlands Ranch, which is not far from the scene of the 1999 Columbine massacre.

Investigators say Devon Erickson, 18, and Alec McKinney, 16, used handguns in the assault. Eight students were wounded.

Prosecutors said both would be tried as adults. McKinney’s attorney, Ara Ohanian, said she would seek to move his case back to juvenile court.

Court documents are sealed, but charges are listed in electronic court records. Judge Theresa Slade denied the prosecution’s request to make some of the documents public but said she would address the issue at the next hearing on June 7.

Family Sues After Video Shows Cop Mow Down Boy With Cruiser for Improper Bicycle Light

As TFTP previously reported, the Sacramento police department released the body and dashboard camera footage from an incident last July in which an officer attempted to cause grave injury to a child by running him over with his cruiser. The child’s crime? He was riding his bicycle without the proper lighting. Now, the taxpayers are going to be held liable for this cop’s actions.

Oakland attorney John Burris filed the lawsuit this week citing a a “string of recent excessive force incidents” by Sacramento police. The lawsuit alleges the officer’s use of excessive force, assault, battery and negligent infliction of emotional distress.

The deeply disturbing video shows a police officer pursuing a 16-year-old boy for riding his bicycle without the proper front-facing light. When the cop tried to stop the child, the child kept peddling.

Forensics Investigation Finds Cops Shot Each Other, Then Murdered Houston Couple

The murder of an innocent Houston couple made national headlines earlier this year as police took to smearing their names and threatening those who didn’t believe their official narrative. As the months passed, we learned that the Houston police department’s raid on the home of Dennis Tuttle and Rhogena Nicholas was based on lies and they were murdered for no reason. Now, the case has reached turning point after the family hired a forensics expert to examine the home and found that there is no evidence the officers encountered gunfire.

According to the forensics experts hired by the family of the victims, the officers who suffered bullet wounds during the raid on the innocent couple’s home were shot by their fellow cops. This is a direct challenge to the official narrative which states the officers were forced to kill the couple after the couple opened fire on them.

It is important to point out that even if the couple did open fire on the officers, the officers were in plainclothes when they kicked in the door to the home and fired first, killing their dog. They did not announce themselves as police and the couple had no way of knowing they were cops. The couple was merely defending themselves from armed home invaders who came in shooting. However, it now appears that the couple never defended themselves and were simply murdered by cops who shot each other.

How the Tech Giants Contributed to the Coup Against Trump

The role of the Masters of the Universe (“MotU”) in the coup d’état is overlooked. As long as they are in control of the internet — the main communication line in our modern society — the coup is alive. With this control, handed to them by the Obama administration; huge financial resources; troves of private information on ordinary citizens, politicians, and officials; and most revenues coming from abroad, their power cannot be overestimated. Even a glimpse reveals an enormous contribution by MotU in launching and sustaining the coup. That includes but is not limited to the development of the conspiracy theories purporting to justify the coup: the allegations of Trump-Russia collusion and of Russian interference in the 2016 election. The impact is so pervasive that its many components need to be separated into multiple categories. Here, only Google, Facebook, Twitter, Microsoft, and Yahoo are considered.

1. MotU denied the U.S. government, including law enforcement and counterintelligence, access to their expertise in network and information security.

Almost immediately after Trump’s inauguration, MotU and more than a hundred other tech corporations converged in opposition to the government. According to the MSM, they were triggered by the travel ban. Such extreme animus toward the elected administration, combined with extensive knowledge about its members and employees (practically everybody in the tech industry is on Microsoft LinkedIn), intimidated the whole industry against saying or doing anything perceived as beneficial to Trump, including challenging cyber-attribution and social media components of the Russian hoaxes. The climate of fear in the cyber-security community was almost palpable, although not entirely caused by Big Tech.

2. Google and Microsoft put their weight as technological powerhouses behind the DNC contractor CrowdStrike and its fraudulent methodology of cyber incidents attribution.

Google endorsed and propped up CrowdStrike by investing (together with other parties) $300M in the company in 2017—2018. Microsoft, Facebook, and Twitter took it upon themselves to “protect democracy” and “election integrity” in the U.S. and other countries.

3. Facebook and Twitter falsely “admitted” Russian government interference in the elections via their platforms, manufactured “research” purported to show that it was in Trump’s favor, and then widely spread these false allegations.

Joe DiGenova: I Believe Some Russia Hoax Architects Will Go to Prison

Joe diGenova expressed optimism that “some of the people responsible” for using federal intelligence assets to surveil and subvert Donald Trump — as a presidential candidate and as president — “are going to go to prison,” offering his remarks in a Wednesday interview on SiriusXM’s Breitbart News Daily with host Alex Marlow.

“This is an unfolding American tragedy,” said diGenova of the Obama administration’s surveillance of Trump’s 2016 presidential campaign and the subsequent Robert Mueller-led operation. “For the first time in this entire almost three years, I now believe that some of the people responsible for this are going to go to prison, and that, to me, is a beautiful thing.”…

DiGenova went on, “It’s really fascinating to watch Rosenstein now pretend to be deeply offended by Comey. He worshiped Comey. Comey was his idol. This type of preposterous, arrogant, self-absorbed putz that James Comey was is an example of the kind of person that Rosenstein would adulate.”

“Bill Barr is the perfect person to be attorney general [because] he has been attorney general before,” assessed diGenova. “He is a seasoned, well-known, respected lawyer in America, and the people in the FBI building and the Department of Justice building feared him — underscore feared him — because they knew you couldn’t lie to him — because they knew you couldn’t lie to him like you could lie to [Jeff Sessions]. They fear him now, and watching him appoint John Durham to investigate this monstrous conspiracy against the president is a true delight.”

K-12: Educrats Are Parasites

Unnecessary administrators swarm through the system, and superintendents are notoriously overpaid, many above $200,000 a year. Principals and administrators hardly deign to negotiate with the community except to say, “No, you can’t.” The Education Establishment has changed public education into a lucrative private business. Why do taxpayers tolerate this underperforming but overcharging colossus?

For all of these questions, one obvious answer is parasitic mind control. John Dewey and his true believers wanted to use the school system for social engineering. They had to rewire, intellectually speaking, the system so it would pursue new goals in new ways. Dewey’s plot has been successful.

The school system, at a casual glance, appears to lumber on as it did a century ago. But there is now a vast disconnect as educrats have altered every part of the system, discarding intellect and sincerity and using a vast but empty husk to perpetrate social schemes on a broader population. In short, the K—12 system is severed from its original intentions, just like the doomed caterpillar.

Mother Accused of Stabbing Child, Abducting Another Receives Life Sentence

A year after a family member found Taheerah Ahmad’s kitchen on fire and her 11-year-old daughter laying in a pool of blood, a judge sentenced the Tulsa mother to life in prison Thursday morning.

District Judge Dawn Moody sentenced Ahmad to three concurrent life sentences on counts of child neglect and assault by means likely to produce death, with a consecutive 10-year sentence on the charge of first-degree arson.

At the sentencing hearing, Moody said the court was lucky it wasn’t hearing a first-degree murder case and that Ahmad deserved the life sentence because her daughters will have the scars she left, both physical and psychological, for the rest of their lives.

Socialists Ganging Up With Islamists to Bring Down America

Bernie Sanders continues with Obama’s Fundamental Transformation of America

The biggest mainstream/social media-ignored story of our day: The Socialists and Islamists have OFFICIALLY ganged up against America in the prelude to the 2020 presidential election.

The not so long ago suspected nightmare of Socialists and Islamists working in tandem against the American people is now a reality unfolding before our very eyes that can no longer be written off as just another conspiracy theory.

Crickets followed Glenn Beck’s announcement on his radio show yesterday that “Faiz Shakir is Bernie Sanders’ new campaign manager.

“Socialists and Islamists are working together for the destruction of the Free Market in the West and Israel,” Beck said.

“That’s exactly what I laid out in the last chalkboard I laid out on Fox for the last year.”

The Real Omar Suleiman

On Sunday, the Dallas Morning News published an op-ed by Muslim Brotherhood linked anti-American Omar Suleiman. In this editorial, the Dallas-based imam claims that the accusations of anti-Semitism by Rep. Lee Zeldin of New York, Fox host Lou Dobbs, and others following Suleiman’s delivery of the invocation last Thursday, May 9 are motivated by hate and are comparable to the hate that led to the New Zealand, Sri Lanka, Pittsburgh, and San Diego massacres.

After giving the invocation in Congress last week, I have been attacked online and threatened with violence. This hate is similar to the hate that led to the other massacres above. It’s a hate that seeks to fracture the communities it targets. It’s a hate that takes the most vulnerable communities in the country and intimidates them into silence so that the only thing they can do is brace for another attack.

From his rhetoric it’s easy to forget that Suleiman has provided no direct evidence of any threats of violence and that he has also neglected to mention that the criticisms lobbed against him are based on his social media footprint. In other words, the “haters” are using fact-based evidence to make an argument.

Trump Mulls Booting Bolton Over His Hawkish Views on Iran, Venezuela — Report

The US president’s national security adviser has long been known for his hawkish views on Iran, North Korea, and recently — Venezuela. According to a recent media report, he was the mastermind behind the alleged plan to send 120,000 troops to the Middle East in a bid to counter Iran — something that Trump denied.

Donald Trump could be considering ousting National Security Adviser John Bolton over displeasure with him pushing for forceful regime changes in Iran, Venezuela, and North Korea, as well as attempting to draw the US into another war, The National Interest reported, citing two anonymous sources. According to the media outlet, he is currently the main driver of the Trump administration’s confrontations with countries around the world.

Trump Gets Another Judge on the Ninth Circuit Over Democrat Objections

President Trump has been remaking the Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals, shifting further and further to the right. On Wednesday he got another victory with the confirmation of Kenneth Lee in a 52-45 vote. And Democrats are really miffed about this one.

Lee’s confirmation came despite neither Sen. Dianne Feinstein (Calif.), the top Democrat on the Judiciary Committee, nor Sen. Kamala Harris (D-Calif.), a 2020 presidential contender, returning a blue slip on his nomination.

The blue-slip rule — a precedent upheld by Senate tradition — has historically allowed a home-state senator to stop a lower-court nominee by refusing to return the blue slip to the Judiciary Committee. How strictly the precedent is upheld is decided by the committee chairman, and enforcement has varied depending on who wields the gavel.

Lee who had a unanimously “well qualified” rating from the American Bar Association, is Trump’s 40th circuit judge to be confirmed, even though Democrats were hoping to block his nomination.

WhatsApp: Malicious Spyware Has All the Markings of “Government Sponsored Surveillance”

WhatsApp has asked users to update their systems after a malicious attack. The cyber attack is complete with all the hallmarks of a “government-sponsored surveillance” attempt.

The messaging and audio app owned by Facebook said Monday that malicious hackers were able to install spyware on Android smartphones and Apple iPhones and is asking users to make sure their security is up to date. But more alarming, is that this looks like the government wants to spy on its own people who use the WhatsApp app. “The attack has all the hallmarks of a private company reportedly that works with governments to deliver spyware that takes over the functions of mobile phone operating systems,” a WhatsApp spokesperson told MarketWatch.

“No matter your views, if you suspect political bias caused such an action to be taken against you, share your story with President Trump,” the website reads.

The “blue light” in LED lighting can damage the eye’s retina and disturb natural sleep rhythms, France’s government-run health watchdog said this week.

New findings confirm earlier concerns that “exposure to an intense and powerful [LED] light is ‘photo-toxic’ and can lead to irreversible loss of retinal cells and diminished sharpness of vision,” the French Agency for Food, Environmental and Occupational Health & Safety (ANSES) warned in a statement.

The agency recommended in a 400-page report that the maximum limit for acute exposure be revised, even if such levels are rarely met in home or work environments.

Germany: Islamic Sex Slavery Painting Stirs International Controversy

An American museum is vociferously calling on a German political party to stop using one of the former’s paintings in the latter’s campaign poster for the European elections.

Titled “Slave Market” and painted by a Frenchman in 1866, the painting “shows a black, apparently Muslim slave trader displaying a naked young woman with much lighter skin to a group of men for examination,” probably in North Africa (AKA “Barbary”).

The Alternative for Germany (AfD) party, founded in 2013 and first elected to Germany’s national parliament in 2017, has been putting up posters of the painting with the slogan, “So that Europe won’t become Eurabia.”

“We are strongly opposed to the use of this work to advance any political agenda,” objected Olivier Meslay, director of the Clark Art Institute in Williamstown, Massachusetts, which houses the original painting. He said his museum had written to AfD, “insisting that they cease and desist in using this painting.” Despite the rather legal tone, the painting is in the public domain; even Meslay acknowledges that “there are no copyrights or permissions that allow us to exert control over how it is used other than to appeal to civility on the part of the AfD Berlin.”

For its part, the AfD said the U.S. museum’s call is “a futile attempt to gag the AfD,” adding that “[t]he German public has the right to find out about the truth about the possible consequences of illegal mass immigration.” Even so, other elements in Germany are even more hostile to the AfD’s poster: “party workers have had to repeatedly put up new copies, only to see them destroyed again the following night.”

What to make of all this? Objectively, the “Slave Market” painting in question portrays a reality that has played out countless times over the centuries: African and Middle Eastern Muslims have long targeted fair “infidel” women — so much so as to have enslaved millions of them over the centuries (as copiously documented in my recent book, Sword and Scimitar: Fourteen Centuries of War between Islam and the West, from which the following quotes and statistics are derived).

Italy: Salvini Sees Too Much Agreement Between PD, M5S

Di Maio says ‘God forbid’

(ANSA) — Verona, May 14 — Deputy Premier and Interior Minister Matteo Salvini said Tuesday that he thinks the 5-Star Movement (M5S), the alliance partners of his League party in the coalition government, may be moving too far to the left.

“I have kept my word with the Italian people and with the M5S for 11 months,” Salvini said during a visit to Verona. “I start to note too many hook-ups between the (opposition, centre-left Democratic Party) PD and the M5s, too much agreement. “(They are saying) no to the flat tax, no to (regional) autonomy, no to the new security decree. “Maybe they want to reopen the ports (to NGO-run migrant-rescue ships) too.

“Someone should explain to me whether they want to agree with the PD or with the Italian people and the League, respecting the pact (of government)”. Fellow Deputy Premier and M5S leader Luigi Di Maio said this analysis was off the mark.

“Has the M5S moved to the left? If the left is the PD, then God forbid,” Di Maio told Mediaset television in an interview that will be screened later on Tuesday.

“No political leader has attacked the PD as much as me.

“The PD is still that of (ex-premier Matteo) Renzi… I don’t want to have anything to do with it”.

Italy: Fontana Presents Pro-Family Package

Widened baby bonus, tax breaks for nappies, powdered milk

(ANSA) — Rome, May 14 — Family Minister Lorenzo Fontana on Tuesday presented two amendments to the government’s growth decree containing a slew of measures in favour of the family.

The so-called ‘baby bonus’ will be broadened to include more of the middle class, he said.

The new means-tested threshold to get the benefit will be raised to 35,000 euros a year, the minister said.

As well as this “incentive to have children”, Fontana said, there will be tax breaks for buying nappies and powdered milk.

“We are continuing a serious and concrete policy for relaunching births after almost a year everyone in government has realised that a demographic boost is the challenge for the country’s development and future.

“They have become my disciples,” said the conservative League party member.

League leader Matteo Salvini, the deputy premier and interior minister, said “concrete help for families has finally come, from the League”.

Smallest Pixels Ever: Gold Nanoparticles Give Crystal Clear Images

Precious metal delivers a sharper image at greater efficiency

This is another in a long list of technological innovations using gold that researchers have developed over the last several years.

The pixels created by Cambridge researchers are about 1 million times smaller than those in your phone. New Atlas reported that this development could soon make your modern hi-res display “look decidedly retro.”

“These new pixels could be used in huge, flexible displays that are relatively easy to manufacture and cheaper to run.”

The pixels start with a tiny grain of gold. The gold particle is then coated with a polymer. Once that process is complete, the particle is placed onto a reflective surface that traps light under each pixel. Electrical pulses create a chemical change that alters the color of the pixel.

“Once a pixel is switched to a certain color, it holds that color until it’s instructed to switch again. That makes them potentially very energy efficient — if a still image is frozen on the screen, for example, it’s not using any energy.”

What’s Wrong With the European Central Bank?

by Andrew Rosenbaum

As Mario Draghi’s term as president comes to an end, the battle over who will succeed him has brought all of the flaws that plague the European Central Bank to the fore.

“The Eurozone will endure, but it will not prosper,” writes London School of Economics professor John Ryan. With growth sluggish, interest rates kept at near-zero per cent for years, bonds at negative yield levels, the Eurozone economy grinds on, never losing, but never really winning.

So what’s wrong with the ECB? It’s inelastic: it can’t change policies easily. It has put so much money and effort into strategies that have not changed for years, that it now has very little left in its arsenal to effect more change, and Europe needs more without delay…

Tucker Carlson: ‘The Usual Suspects’ Are ‘Agitating’ For War With Iran

“How is a war with Iran in America’s interest in any way?”

Tucker Carlson spoke out against the prospect of a war with Iran on Tuesday night during an interview with Colonel Douglas Macgregor.

“How is a war with Iran in America’s interest in any way?” Tucker asked.

“We’ve got a manufactured crisis,” Macgregor said. “There’s nothing new in this intelligence [which was given to the US by Israel — ed]. We’ve been operating in this area for several years now, the Iranians and we, we were both interested in destroying the same target, ISIS.”

“It’s hard to buy the notion that we now have to have a Carrier Battle Group in the Persian Gulf, along with hundreds of aircraft flying in from all over the world in order to deter Iran from attacking us,” Macgregor said.

“There’s no evidence that Iran wants to attack us. Quite the contrary, I think they’d like very much to avoid any conflict with us under any and all circumstances.”

Tucker said “the usual suspects” agitating for war — neocons like Max Boot and Bill Kristol — do not “have the country’s interests at heart.”

After India Province, Islamic State Proclaims a New Province in Pakistan

The group calling itself the Islamic State has announced the establishment of a new overseas province in Pakistan, just days after proclaiming another new overseas province in northern India. Until recently, the Islamic State’s operations in Asia were conducted under the banner of the Islamic State-Khorasan Province, or IS-KP. The shadowy group was founded in early 2015 and was led by former Taliban warlords who pledged allegiance to Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi, the spiritual leader and self-proclaimed emir of the Islamic State. Since that time, at least two of IS-KP’s leaders have been killed by United States forces, while the group has been engaged in a war against rival militant groups in Afghanistan and Pakistan, notably the Taliban.

China Says Its Social Credit System ‘Will Restore Morality’ After Blacklisting 13 Million ‘Untrustworthy’ People and Banning Swathes From Trains and Planes

China’s social credit system, which rates its 1.4 billion citizens based on their daily behaviour, will help the country restore morality, state media reported.

‘China’s ongoing construction of the world’s largest social credit system will help the country restore social trust,’ a report published in the state-run tabloid Global Times on Monday said.

As of March, 13.49 million individuals in China have been classified as untrustworthy, according to data released by the National Development and Reform Commission.

Authorities have blocked more than 20.47 million attempts to buy plane tickets and more than 5.71 million attempts to buy high-speed train tickets from these ‘discredited individuals’, according to the NDRC at a press conference last month.

If the Chinese Were Upset Before, Now They Are Going to be Absolutely Furious After Trump’s Latest Move

President Trump is doubling down on his tough approach with China, and apparently he has decided that now is the time to cripple their most important tech company. Huawei Technologies sells more telecommunications equipment than anyone else in the entire world, and it was anticipated that they would be one of the global leaders in the rollout of 5G networks all over the planet. The company ranks 72nd on the Fortune Global 500 list, and at this point they sell more phones than Apple does. Essentially, Huawei is China’s version of Apple, and the company is greatly loved by the communist government in China. So if President Trump really wanted to piss off China, taking a sledgehammer to Huawei would be a great way to do it, and that is precisely what he just did.

On Wednesday, Trump’s Commerce Department officially added Huawei to their “Entity List”…

The U.S. Commerce Department said on Wednesday it is adding Huawei Technologies Co Ltd and 70 affiliates to its so-called “Entity List” — a move that bans the telecom giant from buying parts and components from U.S. companies without U.S. government approval…

If the Chinese have been using Huawei equipment to spy on us, then this move is certainly justified.

But timing is everything in life, and this comes at a time when negotiations on a new trade deal have just broken down.

One hopeful sign is the fact that Huawei immediately released a statement after they were put on the “Entity List” which stated that they are willing to work with the U.S. government to “come up with effective measures to ensure product security”…

Italy: In New Ruling, Same-Sex Couples Can’t Register Children Born Abroad From Surrogates

Italy’s Court of Cassation handed down a judgement that prohibits same-sex couples from inscribing foreign-born children in the civil registry.

Italy’s highest court issued a ruling today that prohibits same-sex couples with children born abroad from surrogacy to inscribe them in the country’s civil registry. The Supreme Court ruled that adoption through conventional channels will remain available for same-sex couples looking to expand their family. The decision seeks “to protect the pregnant woman and the institution of adoption”.

More specifically, the Supreme Court decision (no. 12193) asserts that “the provisions of a foreign judge with which the relationship of filiation was ascertained cannot be transcribed in the Italian civil registry between a minor born abroad through surrogacy and a person who has no biological relationship with him, the so-called parent of intent”.

The sentence rejected “the request to recognize of the effectiveness of the aforementioned provision”, in a case concerning two children that were conceived by surrogacy for a same-sex couple despite one of the partners providing her eggs to the gestational carrier…

Transgender Tragedy: This Baby Died Because the Mother’s Medical Records Listed Her as Male

A “transgender man” entered a hospital with severe abdominal pains. Because she was identified as a man, the doctors naturally did not think to treat her for labor and delivery, so she tragically lost the baby. Rather than emphasizing the danger of placing gender identity over biological sex, both the journal and The Washington Post made the absurd claim that the hospital should not have ruled out pregnancy for a man.

“He was rightly classified as a man” in the medical records and appears masculine, Dr. Daphna Stroumsa at the University of Michigan-Ann Arbor, wrote in the journal article. “But that classification threw us off from considering his actual medical needs.”
