Gates of Vienna News Feed 5/28/2019

A 95-year-old woman in France was not allowed to vote in the EP elections because she was listed as dead. When the polling-place employee couldn’t find her name on his computer, he dug deeper, and discovered that she had reportedly died in 2017. As a result he was required to turn her away.

In other news, a German high school has banned the wearing of camouflage clothing by students, because seeing such apparel might traumatize refugees who came to Germany from war zones.

Illinois Pushes New ‘Wealth Tax’ As High Earners Flee the State in Droves

Cash-strapped Illinois is one step closer to passing a new income tax with the potential to seriously accelerate the exodus of high-earning taxpayers from the most financially dysfunctional state in America.

Lawmakers in the Illinois House of Representatives on Monday approved a constitutional amendment aiming to get rid of the state’s flat income tax, clearing the way for the amendment to be included on the November 2020 ballot for ratification by the voters. Governor JB Pritzker is widely expected to sign it the amendment, which has already been passed by the State Senate.

According to the Democrats who backed it, the tax will help fix the state’s recurring deficits by creating a sorely needed new revenue source: The higher taxes on those earning more than $250,000 would raise more than $3 billion annually while leaving taxes on 97% of the state’s residents unchanged.

“Large Portions of America Need to Really Wake Up… “ Dan Bongino Backs Up Liz Cheney’s Claim of Treason by Obama’s Key Intel Leaders [Video]

Liz Cheney was mercilessly attacked by the left yesterday after she spoke out, to tell the truth about what Obama’s intel leaders attempted to do.

18 Earth-Size Planets Found in Our Galaxy— All Hiding in Plain Sight

But even though Kepler is done collecting data, scientists are still finding treasures in its vaults, including 18 new, relatively small worlds. Many of these previously overlooked planets are similar to Earth in size, and one of them even lives in an orbit that could be life-friendly.

Breaking: Dossier Author Christopher Steele Refuses to Cooperate With US Attorney John Durham in His Investigation Into Origins of SpyGate

Christopher Steele, the former British spy who was paid by Hillary Clinton and the DNC to compile a 35-page dossier smearing Donald Trump during the 2016 presidential campaign is refusing to cooperate with US Attorney John Durham in his investigation into the origins of Spygate.

Reuters reported:

The former British spy who produced a dossier describing alleged links between Donald Trump and Russia will not cooperate with a prosecutor assigned by U.S. Attorney General William Barr to review how the investigations of Trump and his 2016 election campaign began, a source with knowledge of the situation said.

Christopher Steele, a former Russia expert for the British spy agency MI6, will not answer questions from prosecutor John Durham, named by Barr to examine the origins of the investigations into Trump and his campaign team, said the source close to Steele’s London-based private investigation firm, Orbis Business Intelligence.

However, last week the majority of CNN’s Atlanta division, which focused on health care, was let go.

Now it is being reported that the network will make “substantial” cuts to its London-based operation, with a least a dozen employees losing their jobs.

Colluders, Obstructionists, Leakers, And Other Projectionists

By Victor Davis Hanson

Before the defeat of Hillary Clinton, the idea that the Russians or anyone else could warp or tamper with our elections in any serious manner was laughed off by President Obama. “There is no serious person out there who would suggest that you could even rig America’s elections,” Obama said in the weeks leading up to the 2016 election.

Obama was anxious that the sure-to-be-sore-loser Trump would not blame his defeat on voting impropriety in a fashion that might call into question Clinton’s victory. After Clinton’s stunning defeat, Russian “collusion”—thanks initially to efforts by Obama holdover Deputy Attorney General Sally Yates to go after Michael Flynn and the successful attempts of the CIA and FBI to seed the bogus Steele dossier among the government elite—became a club to destroy the incoming Trump Administration.

Colluders, Inc.

How ironic that Russian “collusion” was used as a preemptive charge from those who actually had colluded with Russians for all sorts for financial and careerist advantages.

The entire so-called Uranium One caper had hinged on ex-President Bill Clinton, Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, and their Clinton Foundation uniting with Russian or Russian-affiliated oligarchs to ease restrictions on the sale of North American uranium reserves to a Russian company with close ties to Vladimir Putin. Coincidentally what followed were massive donations from concerned Russian parties to the foundation, as well as a $500,000 honorarium to Bill Clinton for a brief Moscow speech. Note that no more money has been forthcoming from Russia to either of the Clintons or their foundation.

Had Donald Trump been caught, as President Obama was in Seoul in March 2012, on a hot mic assuring the Russians that he would be more flexible with Russia after the 2020 election (“On all these issues, but particularly missile defense, this, this can be solved—but it’s important for him [Putin] to give me space”) he would likely now be facing real impeachment charges.

Imagine the cries of outrage from Representatives Jerrold Nadler (D-N.Y.) and Adam Schiff (D-Calif.) had Trump inadvertently blurted out to the world that he was willing to warp U.S. security interests to fit his own reelection agenda. (Remember: “This is my last election . . . After my election, I have more flexibility.”) Such a stealthy quid pro quo certainly would have been the crown jewel of Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s report.

The locus classicus of Russian collusion, however, is Hillary Clinton’s effort in 2016. The facts are not in dispute. Using the three firewalls of the Democratic National Committee, the Perkins Coie law firm, and Glenn Simpson’s Fusion GPS, the Clinton campaign paid a foreign national, British subject Christopher Steele, to compile a smear dossier against Clinton’s then-opponent, Donald J. Trump.

Steele then bought Russian and Russian-related sources to produce supposed dirt on Trump. None of these Russian-generated smears would ever be verified. In fact, almost immediately most slurs proved to be outright lies and completely made up in their details—if not the stuff of a Russian disinformation campaign.[…]

Mark Cuban Suggests Changing Second Amendment in Three Ways

Dallas Mavericks Owner Mark Cuban recently made a series of suggestions about how to “update” the Second Amendment to give states more power to regulate guns.

Contradictorily, though, Cuban also said the Second Amendment must be made more explicit that the federal government cannot prevent the ownership of guns.

“One, every American citizen has the right to own a gun,” Cuban said. “Two, the federal government will never be allowed to ever confiscate that gun from an individual.”

Note that Cuban says the Federal government should be banned from confiscating guns, but he did not say if he thinks the states have a right to confiscate guns. So, on the one hand, he seems to be saying that the federal government should operate with a hands-off-guns rule, while the states are free to do whatever they want with them. It appears that Cuban would allow the states to nullify the Second Amendment at will.

At a weekend protest in Bellevue WA, Ilhan Omar supporters chanted at a conservative, black veteran that “right-wing bigots have got to go.” He was trying to have a conversation with them. That’s not what they wanted.

States Sue to Block 1st Amendment Rights as Unconstitutional

Proof that progressive politics now defines education is walking the halls of justice and Congress. Disinformation regarding our founding documents has reached the point that 20 states are crying “foul” because the Trump administration is enforcing First Amendment rights.

Say again?

The ultimate in upside-down reasoning now stands before district courts across the United States. New York to California and 18 states in-between have filed lawsuits claiming that Department of Health and Human Services rules protecting healthcare professionals’religious beliefs are unconstitutional.

This is no joke. These states are enraged that the Trump Administration has made accommodation for doctors, nurses and other clinicians to decline participating in taking the life of a baby (unborn and upon delivery as New York and Vermont have approved).

Why Environment Minister Catherine McKenna Never Protests China’s Ozone-Killing CFC Pollution

The global initiative to cut down on substances that deplete the ozone layer — things called CFCs or chlorofluorocarbons was signed by 197 countries, including the United States, China and Canada.

But despite that accord, global emissions of one of these forms of CFCs has been rising since 2013. After analyzing wind and weather patterns, scientists were able to determine the gases were originating from mainland China.

So far, Canada’s high profile climate warrior, Environment Minister Catherine McKenna, has nothing to say about this covert pollution violation by the Chinese.

That might be because McKenna is a bit of a Sinophile, just like her boss Justin Trudeau who once praised the Chinese “basic dictatorship.” McKenna has also praised the Chinese in the past for their commitment to fighting climate change and for signing onto the Paris Accord, while a study from the US-based Effects Institute shows that 1.6 million Chinese meet an early death each year because of real pollution, like smog and smoke.

McKenna also co-chairs the China Council on climate change, a Communist Party organized panel to help the oppressive dictatorship meet its “five-year plans” and her association with the China Council costs the Canadian taxpayer a million and a half dollars, in payments to China.

It would be principled for McKenna to resign from the China Council in protest of the country’s violation of the Montreal Protocol. But I won’t hold my breath.

This is the same bright bulb that congratulated Syria for joining the Paris Accord…

Analysis: ‘Perverse Reality’ of EU Order Triggered Swiss Gun Vote

The Swiss government has been more supportive of citizens owning guns than just about anywhere else.

But they voted in a referendum over the weekend for more restrictions, and an analyst explains it was under extreme pressure from the European Union.

EU officials told “gun-friendly nations — the Czech Republic and Switzerland” — to make changes in their laws or lose the benefits of easy cross-border access.

“In essence, the EU provided a solution in search of a problem,” wrote Bill Wirtz of Young Voices Advocates at the Foundation for Economic Education. “And somehow, they got people to agree with it.”

He said “gun rights activists lobbied against tighter rules and pushed the vote in an attempt to oppose new agreements between Switzerland and the European Union.”

But the EU was dictating the terms, putting more restrictions on gun owners and centralizing surveillance.

EU Elections: Was Brexit the Beginning of the End for the European Union?

The desire of the British people to reassert their national sovereignty, and leave the increasingly dictatorial European Union (EU), was reiterated in European Parliament elections, held this past week. This desire to leave the EU (Brexit) was loudly proclaimed in a 2016 British national referendum, and the failure to carry out the wishes of the British electorate has so far cost two prime ministers — David Cameron and Theresa May — their lofty positions.

Just as eastern European nations (Hungary, Poland, East Germany, Romania, and Czechoslovakia) escaped Soviet tyranny in the 1980-90s, nations across Europe are now voicing their desire to rule themselves (which, in essence, was what the American Revolution was all about). Political parties and leaders that are advocating freedom from the shackles of the EU made huge gains in the United Kingdom, France, and Italy.

In Great Britain, the governing Conservative Party is imploding because it has been unable, or unwilling, to carry out the mandate of the 2016 Brexit to leave the EU. But the Labour Party that has been the main opposition to the Conservatives for almost a hundred years also took a beating in the European Parliament elections. Emerging first in the balloting was the Brexit Party, which captured 28 of the 73 seats that the United Kingdom is entitled to in the European Parliament — an astounding feat for a political party that is only a few weeks old.

French Senate Says Notre Dame Cathedral Must be Restored Exactly as it Was Before Fire — No Islamic Minarets or Swimming Pools

Following the disastrous fire on April 15th, modern architects made plans for the new and updated Notre Dame Catholic Cathedral in Paris, France.

This came after President Emmanuel Macron’s prime minister announced there would be a competition in design to rebuild the infamous cathedral.

On Monday the French Senate approved the government’s Notre-Dame restoration bill — but added a clause that it must be restored to the state it was before the blaze.

French Woman Denied Vote Because She ‘Was Dead’

A French woman from the Lot-et-Garonne (Nouvelle-Aquitaine) who tried to vote in person in the recent European elections was told she could not do so, because records showed she had died.

The 95-year-old woman, a resident of Nérac, was forced to re-register as a voter on the electoral roll after officials told her that they could not find her on the commune list.

She joked: “I hope I’m not dead, in your computer!”

But, after checking the computer records, the election manager present then said: “Contrary to appearances, you unfortunately appear to have died on December 14, 2017.”

The elderly woman reportedly laughed and said: “Oh well, they will build Europe without me. I did not think I would have to re-register myself on the electoral roll at the age of 95!”

And apparently, the the loss of the CDU/CSU’s position as the largest party in the bloc’s largest legislative body was the last straw for Chancellor Angela Merkel, who reportedly regrets her decision to step aside as party leader last year — a decision she made to clear the way for her chosen successor, Annegret Kramp-Karrenbauer, or AKK.

According to media reports, Merkel is so frustrated with AKK over a series of missteps by the new CDU party leader that the chancellor has decided to withdraw her political support, throwing her well-laid succession plans into disarray.

Merkel’s determination that AKK is not ‘up to the job’ of being chancellor comes as AKK and others within the CDU have pressured Merkel to step down early to give AKK a better shot at securing a full term in 2021.

Though her ability to influence the party is limited now that she has handed over control of the party’s machinery, Merkel can still throw a massive wrench in the works by deciding to spend no more political capital helping AKK, whose chances of winning the chancellorship are fading.

Most people have no clue about the scale of the climate emergency because they “have not been told, or more importantly, told by the right people,” said Thunberg, who has inspired millions of young people across the globe to participate in the Fridays for the Future school strikes.

UK: ‘Absolute Tosh!’ Nigel Farage Loses His Temper and Blasts GMB Host for Repeating False Claims That Remain Votes ‘Add Up’ To a Majority in Euro Elections — Even Though Brexit Party Won Outright

Nigel Farage today angrily dismissed ‘absolute tosh’ claims that Remain parties came out on top in the European elections.

The Brexit Party leader raged that pro-EU politicians were just ‘moaning about every single election which they lose’.

The furious rebuke came after some Remainers argued that adding up the votes for anti-Brexit parties could be taken as an indication that the public did not want to leave the EU.

Former No10 spin doctor Alastair Campbell was among those trying to push the interpretation today, insisting it showed why there must be another referendum.

The Brexit Party romped home in the elections today, raking in 31.6 per cent of the vote despite being formed only six weeks ago. The Lib Dems were a distant second on 20.3 per cent, ahead of Labour on 14.1 per cent, the Greens on 12.1 per cent and the Tories, who came fifth with a dismal 9.1 per cent.

Presenter Charlotte Hawkins challenged Mr Farage about the argument as he appeared on ITV’s GMB programme, saying: ‘If you add up all the pro-Remain parties they did get a bigger percentage — 35.8 per cent versus the Brexit party 31.6 per cent. So the pro-Remain parties altogether did get a bigger percentage.’

But a clearly livid Mr Farage — who will be leading the joint largest party in the European Parliament when MEPs take up their seats in July — shot back by pointing out the obvious flaw in the argument, underlining that the results can be portrayed in various different ways to make political capital.

‘I’m sorry this is absolute tosh, he said. ‘It is not a fact.’

Mr Farage said: ‘Add up the Brexit vote, add up the Ukip vote. add the Conservative vote, who are still a party that says we are going to leave, and you will find that Leave beat Remain.

‘In fact what you will find is that overall the country is 52-48 in favour of leaving.’

UK: ‘To All the MPs Who Told Me They Were Not Voting Labour, Your Secrets Are Safe With Me’:

‘Lifelong’ Labour member Alastair Campbell hits back with veiled threat as he is expelled from party for voting Lib Dem at EU elections

Alastair Campbell was today expelled from Labour after he admitted he had not voted for the party for first time in his life, in disgust at the party’s stance on Europe.

Tony Blair’s former spin doctor said he had backed Liberal Democrats at the European elections last Thursday because he wants to stop Brexit.

Hitting back at Corbyn and his leadership he said: ‘To all the Labour staff, MPs, peers and councillors who told me they were not voting Labour fear not; as I believe in loyalty to the tribe, your secrets are safe with me’.

The Labour leadership threw him out of the party over his vote — but Mr Campbell will appeal saying Jeremy Corbyn was never expelled despite spending years voting against Labour in Parliament from the backbenches.

UK: Poll Reveals Majority of Tories Voted Brexit Party, Hunt Would Freeze Out Farage From Negotiations

Sorry, but you needn’t think this changes anything. Just because a third of you supported the Brexit Party, it doesn’t mean you’re going to get Brexit.

Is there much more of this?

Forgive me, but this is what most of the post EU-election commentary amounted to yesterday. Just because you’re paranoid, and all that.

It was almost as if Thursday’s vote had never happened. You wouldn’t have thought that Farage’s Brexit Party had gone from 0-32 per cent in six weeks from a standing start.

UK: Viewers Accuse Channel 5 of ‘Glorifying Grooming’ For Featuring a Man, 44, Who Started a Relationship With a 16-Year-Old Girl in a Show About ‘Age Gap Love’

Channel 5 has come under fire from viewers for ‘normalising grooming’ after posting a clip of a show about age gap relationships, featuring a man in his 40s who met his wife when she was 16.

The broadcaster tweeted a clip from Age Gap Love, which first aired in November 2018, to tease the return of the documentary series in June.

It featured bus driver Andy Telford from North Wales who was 44-years-old when he started a relationship with Beth Telford, 16, after becoming friends with her mother.

The pair were forced to move 170 miles from Llandudno in North Wales to Lancashire after neighbours branded Andy a ‘paedo’ when news of their controversial affair got out.

The couple have now been married for three years and have two children together, but Twitter users hit out at the channel for ‘glorifying the grooming of an underage girl and the inappropriate relationship that follows.’

One viewer wrote: ‘This is not entertainment it is grooming, and reading between the lines, I’m going to suggest he was her ‘step dad’ or mum’s partner at one point

‘She doesn’t seem him as a “dad”, probably because he didn’t behave as a dad and groomed a child.’

UK: What if Euro Poll Was a General Election? Farage Would be PM With a 200-Seat Majority — But in Reality Higher Turnout Would Keep Nigel Out of No 10 (Probably)

Nigel Farage might have delivered a political earthquake in the EU elections — but it would be nothing to the shock if he could replicate the performance in a Westminster election.

The Brexit Party would be sitting on a 200-plus seat majority if the votes broke down the same way in a general election, according to the Electoral Calculus website.

Such results would spell disaster for key Conservative strongholds — with constituencies held by Cabinet ministers Sajid Javid and Brandon Lewis among those most at risk.

The figures will come as a brutal wake-up call to the Tories, although experts have played down the likelihood of a Westminster election having the same outcome.

Frightening System Targets Anyone Not Behaving to Gov’t Standards

Many Americans have issues with receiving a news report produced by artificial intelligence. Or having videos censored because some tech geek has created an algorithm that defines it as inappropriate.

They should thank their lucky stars they’re not in China.

Human Rights Watch has uncovered the “inner workings” of software used by police in the autonomous territory of Xinjiang that monitors people for any deviation from “an algorithmically determined norm.”

The Electronic Frontier Foundation said the app is used by authorities to communicate with the Integrated Joint Operations Platform, IJOP, which collects information from all surveillance in the territory.

The system targets “just about anyone” who isn’t behaving according to the government’s standards.

EFF noted IJOP “requires a massive amount of manual labor, all focused towards data entry and translating the physical world into digital relationships.”

Xinjiang is home to the Uighurs and other Turkic minority groups that have been targeted in crackdowns by the Chinese communists.

Illegal Health Care Worker Murders 12 Patients

Did you know that Democrat-Communists accuse anyone as being a racist who inquires about someone’s legal status? Yes, this is the latest, despite the fact that intruders from Central America are mostly connected with the cruel murderous gang, MS-13. Gang-style murders committed by illegal aliens have become common both on the Maryland and Virginia sides of Washington, D.C.

Yet nobody in the George Soros “main stream” media have reported on the immigration status of these roaming killers. The ‘press’ has been silent on that point. And of real concern is the close proximity to Washington, D.C., the most important area of The United States. It would not take much for them to show up to interrupt and cause havoc in the houses of Congress and Senate.

Last week, three teens, including two confirmed illegal aliens from El Salvador, were charged with first degree murder in Prince George County, Maryland for literally butchering to death a 14 year old with a bat and machete. So when was the last time this happened? It did not until now. This grisly crime has taken place now as the Democrats feel it is their duty to open the borders and overwhelm America with illegal hoodlums, for the purpose of weakening America. The Democrats are an evil party who want only evil to infect our country. Their obvious connection to Satan is compelling. Here is the full story with embedded links documenting that this is COMMON:

The Soros owned media has refused to inform the public that an illegal, who had barged into this country and obtained employment as a health care worker murdered at least 12 elderly women in Texas. Billy Chemimir (the name he gave), a 46 year old healthcare worker, had already been charged with capital murder in March of 2018 in the death of Lu Thi Harris, 81, according to One News Now, but was indicted on Tuesday for 11 additional deaths. Chemimir, a citizen of Kenya (like Obama) was living illegally in the United States and smothered his victims with a pillow and then robbed them. This illegal savage killed them to rob them.

A Wake-Up Call for Every Family and Church in the United Stares

The Making of a “Happy Slave”

The following blatant words taken from the G20 Sustainable Development Declaration, 2018, Argentina, serves as a wake-up call for every family and church in the United Stares:

“… education represents a strategic policy area that has a profound impact on people, the planet and the prosperity of nations. Education is the foundation of personal development as it provides children, youth and adults with the knowledge, skills, values and attitudes necessary to reach their full potential. Education helps to reduce poverty and promote active citizenship, therefore contributing to peaceful, inclusive and prosperous societies across the world.” And to educate and train people to have the … “necessary skills for the future of work, the importance of opportunities to re-and upskill throughout their working lives, and assist them to successfully adapt to change.” ( Emp. Noted.)

Is education really the foundation of personal development?

The UN Declaration eliminates parents, families, and churches to develop personal values and attitudes for this new world order. Eliminating traditional family values is the goal. Belief in God, loyalty to your country and the authority of parents will be erased. Children will be transformed and molded into the new global citizen through education. It’s mental health. It’s nationwide. It’s worldwide.

“… Successful strategists aim for the heart first” — Jeroen De Flander

Nothing in current history has ever been so plain, yet hidden behind deceptive phrases that ooze betrayal. Our children are a target, but the agenda is very clear. Schools in the United States have been used in experimental research in the area of the affective domain including the spiritual aspect of a child’s being, the heart. The teaching method is called the “whole child.” This has been the area where values, attitudes, beliefs, and dispositions have been the focus for behavioral conditioning and value change. United States citizens must have their individualist qualities, their freedom loving values, and their individualistic competitive personalities changed. Change in America is a must to conform the U.S. into a socialistic country including global compromise. Americans must become global citizens. Re-engineering education has toppled academics for the new psyche wards claiming to be your neighborhood school. The churches have closed their eyes.

How is it being done? Experimental and illegal data collection targets the individual needing behavioral change and identifies how much mental health interventions are needed to meet government goals processed in the classrooms of your local school. This system recycles children in a continuous feedback loop control model until the goals are accomplished.

[… ]

Children were placed in hypothetical situations and asked what action (behavior) they would take. Questions were posed by positive and negative responses and through reward and punishment where a threshold could be determined and scored at what point a child would change their behavior.

Call to “Steal From Walmart” Over Abortion Controversy Goes Viral

A call by abortion activists to mass loot Walmart stores over the company’s donations to pro-life lawmakers has gone viral.

Earlier this month, the Alabama Legislature passed the Human Life Protection Act, which imposes a near blanket ban on abortion including in cases of rape and incest.

Last week, it was revealed that six corporations had funded lawmakers responsible for pushing anti-abortion laws in Georgia, Mississippi, Alabama, Kentucky, Missouri, and Ohio.

One of those companies is Walmart, which donated $57,700 in total, including $7,000 to Ohio Governor Mike DeWine and $10,000 to Ohio Senate President Larry Obhof.

This led one Twitter user to tweet a call to, “STEAL FROM WALMART 2019.”

Cultural Marxism: The Corruption of America

Produced by James Jaeger, the documentary shows how a group of Marxist theoreticians, calling themselves The Frankfurt School, plotted the corruption and overthrow of non-Communist nations by systematically undermining their cultures. Called Cultural Marxism, its goal is the use of art, music, education, and media to condition people to accept the essential elements of Marxism without identifying them as such. After a few generations of this conditioning, Marxism becomes the new reality without a violent revolution and even without awareness that a revolution has occurred.

If you want to know how the nations of the world became increasingly Marxist in form, if not in name, here is the strategy.

The film’s opening statement by Pat Buchanan prepares the viewer for what is to follow: “The United States has undergone a cultural, moral, and religious revolution. … We are two countries now. We are two countries morally, culturally, socially, and theologically. Cultural wars do not lend themselves to peaceful co-existence. One side prevails, or the other prevails. The truth is that, while we won the Cold War with political and economic Communism, we lost the war with cultural Marxism, which now is dominant. Those of us who are traditionalists, we are the counterculture.”

Police now say the gay man was the aggressor who was spitting on passengers. The two men who approached him were trying to calm the man down.

Leftist Lunacy at Cannes

This year’s Cannes Film Festival in France opened with a new Jim Jarmusch movie from Focus Features (owned by the reliably liberal NBC Universal) called The Dead Don’t Die, filled with in-your-face attacks on Republicans, conservatives, and people/states who vote for them. The plot is spurred by an environmental apocalypse caused by “polar fracking.”

‘My Vegan Diet Brought on Early Menopause’: She’s a Poster Girl for the Meat-Free Revolution. But in a Shocking Confession, Cookery Author and Social Media Guru Virpi Mikkonen, 39, Admits it Ruined Her Health (So She’s Eating Burgers!)

Early last year, Virpi Mikkonen was alarmed by the appearance of a rash on her face.

There were other problems: a bout of flu that was hard to shift; crumbling nails; feeling low; and, most worrying, her periods stopped. A blood test revealed her follicle-stimulating hormone (FSH) levels had sky-rocketed to the level at which women hit the menopause. Virpi was 37 and having hot flushes.

‘I thought, what’s wrong with me? I am healthy, I exercise,’ Virpi says. ‘I was really scared.’

At the time, Virpi believed herself to be eating the healthiest of all diets: gluten-free, grain-free, dairy-free, meat-free, refined sugar-free. And what’s more, she’d built a career inspiring others to eat it, too.

NPR Talk Show ‘1A’ Devotes Hour to Pro-Abortion Viewpoint, It’s Just ‘Pregnancy Tissue’

The National Public Radio talk show 1A did an hour on new “restrictive” laws on abortion on Tuesday, but it was not a debate, it was a pro-abortion show. Substitute host Sasha-Ann Symons announced “we want today’ s conversation to focus on the impact and likely consequences of these laws. Our guests are here to answer your questions, not to debate the topic.” The guests were two liberal journalists and an abortionist, who described she can “remove all the pregnancy tissue.”

Who Needs Debate? CNN’s ‘United Shades’ Spiked Pro-Lifers to ‘Stop the Patriarchy’

Kira Davis at RedState reports that the “woke” CNN documentary series United Shades of America wasted the time of two pro-life activists as the host, comedian W. (Walter) Kamau Bell, decided to air an almost entirely one-sided lecture about “reproductive justice.” There are no “united shades” on this show. It’ s divisive agitprop from the get-go.

  1. “German School Bans Camouflage Clothing to ‘Respect’ Refugees” well, time for the parents of the students to move them to a different school or buy lots of camo clothing for them.

    • yes, and citizens were asked not to throw firecrackers or – works on holidays in presence of traumatized refugees!
      Now guess who are the keenest fireworkers on new years eve and waste amounts on taxpayers expense that I wouldn’ t dare to spend!

  2. The EU parliament is a fraud (despite this is nothing new).
    The formation of a new political group (of populist inspiration) at the EUparliament is not even possible:

    This is like excommunication by another authority (bigger ? higher ?) because they said that such a group would be against the human rights.

    This is the PACE (Parliamentary Assembly of Council of Europe) site:
    http://www.assembly.coe.int/nw/Home-EN.asp

    It is a strange beast, made by 47 states (many more then EU itself, likle Russia and Turkey too):
    https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Parliamentary_Assembly_of_the_Council_of_Europe

    But they (PACE) can say who can form a group and who cannot at european parliament: this is the biggest scam ever in the last “elections”, so voting at european election is pure fraud, because despite higher number of populist parties, they are unable to form a block, that means that EPP + S&D + ALDE is continuing its power with no possibility to change anything by voting.

  3. Germany is a sick country, where war zone ???, war is Syria is over , and the others are illegal invaders by this unbelievable stupid politicians, I’m speechless..

    • They rely on the majority of people believing whatever the evening news tells them, without checking the information or doing at least some research on their own.
      To be fair, this behaviour isn’t exclusive to either side of the political spectrum. Even though conservatives tend to be a bit more suspicious than liberals, the majority is still dumb enough to blindly trust whichever source they consider reliable.
      People who follow both sides, check the presented information on various sources and compared it to get as close to the truth as possible are a teeny tiny minority.
      And it’s not because people don’t have time for that, checking several sources doesn’t take more than maybe 15 minutes a day, it’s just that people simply don’t care as long as they have something to eat and a place to sleep. Why else do you think tabloids and reality shows sell so much better than serious media?

    • What’s even more concerning is that SPD was second and the Greens third. Since those parties would definitely join a coalition, that gives them a solid 65,93%. That’s really dangerous, to say the least!
