Gates of Vienna News Feed 6/2/2019

Fidesz, the party of Hungarian Prime Minister Viktor Orbán, will not join Matteo Salvini’s new populist group in the European Parliament, at least not for the moment. Mr. Orbán’s party currently belongs to the European People’s Party (EPP) group, which also includes German Chancellor Angela Merkel’s CDU.

In other news, 74 migrants were intercepted yesterday as they attempted to land on the southern coast of England in Kent and Sussex, prompting Home Secretary Sajid Javid to announce that he will do whatever it takes to stop the flow of immigrants.

A Constitutional Crisis, Part 3

We have the 2nd Amendment that states A well-regulated Militia, being necessary to the security of a free State, the right of the people to keep and bear Arms, shall not be infringed. Pay close attention to the “shall not be infringed” part. Requiring a permit to buy, keep, carry a fire arm falls into the category of ‘infringed’. Some states require a permit to just buy ammo! None of our Founders believed that here should be restrictions on a citizen’s right to own a gun. In 1788 Zacharia Johnson, in a speech in the Virginia Ratifying Convention he stated: “The people are not to be disarmed of their weapons. They are left in full possession of them.” Gouverneur Morris, a Founding Father of the United States, and a signatory to the Articles of Confederation and the United States Constitution, stated: “Americans need never fear their government because of the advantage of being armed, which the Americans possess over the people of almost every other nation.” Even Cesare Beccaria, an Italian jusrist, knew that a persons right to carry arms should never be taken from them. Simple common sense deducts this. He stated: “Laws that forbid the carrying of arms … disarm only those who are neither inclined nor determined to commit crimes… Such laws make things worse for the assaulted and better for the assailants; they serve rather to encourage than to prevent homicides, for an unarmed man may be attacked with greater confidence than an armed man.” The Father of our Nation, George Washington, stated: “Firearms are second only to the Constitution in importance; they are the peoples’ liberty’s teeth.”

I could go on and on with quotes from the Founders concerning this and our history has proven that the common population has been far better off because we have been armed. I mention this because virtually every Democrat that has jumped into the race for president in the 2020 election is calling for gun control, jail for anyone who won’t turn in their guns. In Cory ‘Sparticus the Groper’ Booker’s warped mind, tearing up the Constitution and stripping Americans of their rights is the key to establishing “justice” for all. And how does Booker intend to make justice a reality? Well, he has what he calls a 14-point plan that is actually 15-points:

Anti-Trump Traitors Rip Blindfold Off Lady Justice

What anti-American zealots in government and media are doing to president Trump is unprecedented and should scare the heck out of every American. They have created a parallel universe void of truth and reality. In the midst of Trump actually making America great again, millions of Americans believe Trump is a Russian agent, mentally ill, and leading America to destruction.

Trump brought back jobs that Obama decreed were gone forever. Black, Hispanic, and female unemployment are at historic lows. Trump pulled us out of bad deals with foreign governments. Thanks to Trump eliminating absurd regulations and oppressive taxes, businesses are coming home to America building factories. The average American wage is $27 per hour. Americans are enjoying an economic boom. All this incredible good news is for the most part being hidden from Americans.

Instead, Democrats, fake news media, Hollywood, and social media flood the airwaves with their lie that Trump is horrible for America. They claim he obstructed justice in the Mueller investigation. Hogwash! The truth is the Mueller so-called investigation was really an illegal witch-hunt, a silent coup undermining Trump’s presidency; to reverse the 2016 presidential election.

Mueller’s investigation was based solely on the Steele Dossier, a bogus document written in 2016 and paid for by Hillary Clinton.

College Admission Scandal CFO Pleads Guilty, Agrees to Cooperate With Prosecutors

The body count of participants in the largest college admission scandal of all time continues to pile up.

The chief financial officer of mastermind William “Rick” Singer’s firm has now pleaded guilty to racketeering charges and is cooperating with federal prosecutors, according to Bloomberg. Steven Masera, 69, assisted Singer in laundering fees and bribes that parents paid to fix their children’s college entrance exams and designate non-athletes as recruited athletes to get them preferential treatment. The cash was funneled through a sham charity called the Key Worldwide Foundation.

Daily Beast Journo, Facebook Doxx Black Trump Supporter Over ‘Drunk Pelosi’ Video

The Daily Beast on Sunday was ecstatic after contributing editor and ex-con hacker Kevin Poulsen doxxed 34-year-old Shawn Brooks, a black Trump-supporter who posted a viral video on Facebook of House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) which was slowed down so she appears drunk.

On May 22, Brooks — a blue collar day laborer from New York — posted an initial, unedited clip to his personal Facebook page of Pelosi stammering her way through a news conference, with the caption “Is Nancy Pelosi drunk?” 13 minutes later, he posted a different video of Pelosi to a political Facebook page he operates, Politics WatchDog, which had been deliberately slowed down to make her appear as though drunk.

And how did Daily Beast come to know this? Facebook told them it was Brooks (who The Beast was sure to note is currently on probation for domestic battery, future employers.)

DARPA Can Exterminate Humanity: “You Could Feasibly Wipe-Out the Human Race”

One of the most dangerous experiments that mankind has ever embarked upon is DARPA’s desire for gene drive technology. Scientists now have the knowledge and the tools they need to create and deliver “Doomsday genes” which can selectively target and exterminate an entire species.

According to Sputnik News, and as previously reported by SHTFPlan, the United States highly-secretive and advanced military research body DARPA (Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency) announced that it will invest tens of millions of dollars into genetic extinction research. While the official aim of this research is said to be fighting harmful insects, like mosquitos which carry Malaria, there are significantly darker implications and speculations surrounding the possible use of such a tool.

Joe Joseph of The Daily Sheeple said a quick Google search would give you enough information to let you know how horrific this kind of technology can be.

“… and you’ll find it fascinating just at how unbelievable a weapon this could be, how unintentionally mistakes can be made that can cause irreversible damage… irreparable damage… to the human race. And I mean, FAST!” Joseph said.

“A gene drive… if let’s just say there’s a mistake, you could feasibly wipe out the human race in a very very short period of time. It’s an unbelievable tool at the disposal of madmen.”

Globalist German Chancellor Angela Merkel Gives Commencement Speech at Harvard, Brazenly Attacks President Trump for Putting America First

German Chancellor Angela Merkel took aim at Donald Trump’s worldview in a speech on U.S. soil, saying unilateralism risks bringing down post-World War II alliances and trade wars threaten the “foundations of our prosperity.”

If this story doesn’t make you mad, congratulations, you’re a globalist Democrat. Can you imagine the unmitigated gall of this women, Angela Merkel, coming to the the United States to give the commencement speech at Harvard, and then attack our president because he is not a globalist and is putting the interests of America ahead of the interests of the rest of the world?

Hawaii Warns Tourists of Parasitic Worm That Can Burrow Into Human Brains

The parasitic worm in these cases is the rat lungworm, aka Angiostrongylus cantonensis. As its common name suggests, the wandering worm primarily takes up residence in rats’ lungs, where female worms lay their eggs. Young worms leave the nest early to find their own windy homes, though. Larvae get coughed up into rats’ throats then swallowed. The hosting rat eventually poops out the young parasites, which then get gobbled up by feces-feasting snails and slugs (intermediate hosts). When other rodents come along and eat those infected mollusks, the prepubescent parasites migrate to the rats’ brains to mature before settling into the lungs and reproducing. The cycle then starts again.

Humans are an accidental host, typically infected when they inadvertently eat an infected slug or snail that has slid into their salad fixings or other produce. Officials have blamed the recent boom in human cases, in part, on an explosion of an invasive “semi-slug,” which is particularly good at picking up the parasite.

Liberal Media Silent as Explosive New FBI Memos Allege Martin Luther King Jr. Had Affairs With Over 40 Women and Watched as a Pastor Raped a Woman

According to The Times, an FBI memo accompanying the tape alleges King “looked on and laughed” as a pastor of Baltimore’s Cornerstone Baptist Church raped a woman in the hotel room. The pastor died in 1991. The FBI documents say King had a conversation in which he “discussed which women among the parishioners would be suitable for natural and unnatural sex acts,” The Times wrote, citing Garrow’s article.

[… ]

In conclusion, we live in a day and age where radical Leftist groups like ANTIFA and Black Lives Matter seek to ‘correct the record’ about the Confederacy, offensive racist statues and everything else they want to expose and bring to light. OK, so as long as we’re doing all that, let’s also bring to light the truth about JFK and MLK. Both men led scorchingly scandalous and unrepentant double lives that are also part of their legacy. Yes, let’s remove the statues that glorify a racist past, and let’s also remove the statues of the idols that we created in Kennedy and King. If you do one, you have to do all three if you want to be fair about it.

Why is the fake news media silent on this matter? I thought that we should ‘believe all victims’, stand for the oppressed, and give a voice to the people without a voice? Why isn’t the fake news media right now investigating these allegations, and seeing if there is truth that Martin Luther King Jr. had affairs with 40 women and watched a pastor rape a member of his own congregation? Talk about selective outrage. I think they are silent because the allegations about King, like with Kennedy, are all true.

LOL: NYU ‘Reporting on the Far Right’ Class Canceled After Only Two Students Enroll

New York University has canceled a course, titled “Reporting on the Far Right,” after only two students enrolled.

The course was scheduled to be taught by Talia Lavin, a former fact-checker for The New Yorker who resigned after falsely reporting that an Immigration and Customs Enforcement agent and U.S. war veteran who lost his legs in combat had a Nazi tattoo, as Campus Reform previously reported. Lavin confirmed on Twitter that her scheduled course was canceled. New York University spokeswoman Shonna Keogan also confirmed that the class was canceled because not enough students enrolled.

Mueller: ‘I Couldn’t Find a Trump-Crime… So it’s Time to Impeach Him!’

I have never before witnessed such a sham of a legal system or — even worse — experienced the horror that the real criminals were the ones running it. The additional horror is that other gangsters have and/or are replacing those who have been fired (some likely awaiting the day when they will be arrested) or have run for the proverbial hills upon realizing what may soon be revealed. Having personally experienced this lifetime for not quite — but getting closer each day — a century, I do have some small perspective with regards to history. Mueller — with all of the Trump-haters on his staff — could find that President Trump committed no crime. So, in his own rather sleazy way, he turned it over to Congress to impeach him. This is the caliber of human being we currently have in upper management within the bowels of the US government.

Scientists Splice Spider Gene Into Fungus to Kill Mosquitoes

Researchers from the University of Maryland (UMD) genetically modified a fungus to produce a spider toxin that quickly kills mosquitoes. And in an out-of-lab trial, the fungus reduced a mosquito population by more than 99 percent, according to NPR — though the team’s controversial use of genetic engineering has some worried the method is too dangerous for the real world.

According to a paper published Thursday in the journal Science, the fungus the UMD researchers modified kills mosquitoes in the wild — but it isn’t particularly fast, meaning the insects might have time to infect someone with malaria before meeting their demise.

To give the fungus a boost, the team engineered it to produce a toxin derived from the venom of the Australian Blue Mountains funnel-web spider, which kills mosquitoes far more quickly. The team then tested the fungus in a “MosquitoSphere,” a screen-enclosed setting in West Africa designed to mimic a village.

[Comment: What could go possibly go wrong? Mosquitos adapt and become carriers of fungus as well as malaria.]

Stacey Abrams Joins Globalist Elite, Anointed by CFR, Bilderberg Group

The globalists’ talent agents spotted Abrams as an articulate, marketable commodity who could effectively play the race card

The Fake News organs that regularly shower Stacey Abrams with adulatory coverage are now mum about her entry into the secretive, shadowy corridors of power.

Stacey Abrams has really arrived. The former Minority Leader of the Georgia House of Representatives and the Democrat Party candidate in the 2018, hotly-contested Georgia gubernatorial election, Abrams scored a double anointing by major globalist groups during the month of May. First, on May 10, she was chosen to deliver the keynote address at the Council on Foreign Relations’ Seventh Annual Conference on Diversity in International Affairs. She received the royal rock star treatment during that conference, as the great and the good packed into “A Conversation With Stacey Abrams,” a Q&A session emceed by New York Times reporter and editorial board member Eduardo Porter.

Then, on May 28 the Bilderberg Group issued a press release announcing its annual conference, which this year is taking place May 30-June 2 in Montreux, Switzerland. Accompanying the release is a list of the participants, an A-list of some of the planet’s wealthiest and most influential movers and shakers in the worlds of banking, business, media, academia, and politics, as Bob Adelmann noted in a May 29 report for The New American. And lo and behold, heading the list is none other than Stacey Abrams. Quite a coup for an unemployed former minor politician.

Being invited to join the CFR is a big thing in a politico’s career, signifying that one has received the Deep State’s basic seal of approval. Abrams is not merely a CFR member, but as the following will show, she has been selected and groomed for special boosting by the CFR’s network of power, including the Brookings Institution, the Aspen Institute, TED Talks, PowerPAC+, the Fake News media matrix, and now, of course, Bilderberg.

[… ]

Some time back, obviously, the globalists’ talent agents spotted Abrams as an articulate, marketable commodity who could effectively play the race card. A noteworthy milestone in her vita includes being selected in 2013 by Aspen Global Leaders Network (AGLN) to be a member of the Aspen Institute’s Rodel Fellowship Class of 2013.

She was also chosen as a keynote speaker at the 2014 PowerPac+ conference entitled “Race Will Win the Race: The Progressive Path to Victory.” As one might gather from the conference title, the power-mad folks at PowerPAC+ don’t mind being explicitly and shamelessly racist, as long as exploiting race results in “progressive” victories. PowerPAC+ is the very serious hobby horse of radical activist Steven Phillips and his billionaire heiress wife, Susan Sandler. According to Ballotpedia, Sandler’s PowerPac+ pumped $10 million into supporting Abram’s campaign, while George Soros (CFR) dropped $1 million into the Georgia Democratic Party to aid her.

Still on YouTube: Lefty Who Calls for Violence, Purge of Conservatives

Conservatives have been booted for tweeting “learn to code,” meanwhile a liberal calling for violence against conservatives has gotten a free pass.

Far Left Watch claimed that Steven Bonnell, better known as Destiny, “participates in political debates and is very outspoken about his proclivity towards political violence.” They complained about the double standard of exposing extreme right-wing views, but ignoring left-wing ones.

Bonnell has made statements such as wishing he had followed up on previous death threats and that conservatives need to be violently purged from America.

Peter D’Abrosca at BigLeaguePolitics wrote that “Bonnell is using his large platform to continue to radicalize the already-violent political left against conservatives.” He added that “Violent behavior towards the political right has become commonplace, while legacy media turns a blind eye.”

Bonnell has a substantial audience with 203k YouTube subscribers and 422k subscribers on video game streaming platform Twitch.

In a video compilation made by Jørn Hansen that was viewable on Youtube as of May 31, Bonnell made statements such as “I’ve moved full on to the real violence level when it comes to conservative people, yeah, I think they need to be excised from my ing country, I think they are demonstrably ing evil people.”

He brazenly said in another clip, “I’m personally ashamed, that I didn’t follow up and actually didn’t find where that kid lives and in’ murder him.” He lamented that only reason he could not follow up on that murder threat was because “I have a kid of my own, I can’t afford to go to jail and do time.” He later added, “I regret making a threat I couldn’t follow up on” and speculated that in another universe he would have gone “full Batman” and “f***in’ kill him.”

The History and Results of America’s Disastrous Public School System

Authored by Justin Spears via The Foundation for Economic Education

All across the nation, students are being prodded like cattle into classrooms, and the one-size-fits-all approach is failing them.

There is a popular saying that “the proof is in the pudding.” In the first part of this article set, my colleague Mike Margeson spelled out the historical roots of the American schooling system. He clearly laid out the blueprint that men like Horace Mann used to build a system that does anything but “educates.” Factor in that trillions of dollars have been spent on schooling, and it makes it even harder to justify.

A Broken System

Yet we continue to hear the “Red for Ed” crowd scream for more funding. Here in the state of Indiana, the superintendent of public education is leading an assault on the state legislature for a meager 2 percent increase in state funding. Many educators are characterizing this as a decrease in funding! In no other walk of life would we continue to pour so many resources into a failed system. If you had any doubt about this after reading Part One, let me present you with some facts.

Trump Declares War on Silicon Valley: DOJ Launches Google Anti-Monopoly Probe

For months now, the FTC has appeared to be gearing up for a showdown with big tech.

Just before midnight on Friday, at the close of what was a hectic month for markets, WSJ dropped a bombshell of a story: The paper reported that the DoJ has opened an anti-trust investigation of Alphabet Inc., which could “present a major new layer of regulatory scrutiny for the search giant, according to people familiar with the matter.” The report was sourced to “people familiar with the matter,” but was swiftly corroborated by the New York Times, Bloomberg and others.

For months now, the FTC has appeared to be gearing up for a showdown with big tech. The agency — which shares anti-trust authority with the DoJ — has created a new commission that could help undo big-tech tie-ups like Facebook’s acquisition of Instagram, and hired lawyers who have advanced new anti-monopoly theories that would help justify the breakup of companies like Amazon.

But as it turns out, the Trump administration’s first salvo against big tech didn’t come from the FTC; instead, this responsibility has been delegated to the DoJ, which has reportedly been tasked with supervising the investigation into Google.

That’s not super surprising, since the FTC already had its chance to nail Google with an anti-monopoly probe back in 2013. But the agency came up short. From what we can tell, it appears the administration will divvy up responsibility for any future anti-trust investigations between the two agencies, which means the FTC — which is already reportedly preparing to levy a massive fine against Facebook — could end up taking the lead in those cases.

Why So Many Americans Call Evil Good and Good Evil

Best-selling author David Kupelian exposes secret root of Trump Derangement Syndrome

To begin with, Kupelian asked Rabbi Eric Walker during a recent appearance on “Revealing the Truth”: “What happens when you begin to fall away from common sense and your conscience, doing what’s right? Things go badly, you have conflict, you feel depressed, you’re angry.”

Now, he continued, what if a wildly irrational worldview somehow becomes enmeshed in all of America’s major institutions, leading millions of people away from common sense and their consciences? Logically, you will have a whole nation full of depressed and angry people, said Kupelian. In fact, that argument is the premise of his most recent book, “The Snapping of the American Mind.”

“Not only is the left irrational, but it is leading America — good Americans — over the edge,” he told the show’s host.

This deluded leftist worldview, he said, has led to a situation in which depression is “through the roof” on college campuses, adding that a staggering 130 million Americans are now dependent on some type of mind-altering substance just to get through life. The core reason for all this misery, he said, is very basic: As people move away from what their conscience tells them is right, they come into conflict with their true selves.

Worse, when people reach the point that they not only are at war with their own conscience, but actually glorify and justify their own perverse beliefs and behaviors, they begin to see the goodness in others as evil.

Canada and Mexico Begin USMCA Ratification

Both Canada’s and Mexico’s executive branches have formally begun the process of asking their country’s legislative bodies to ratify the USMCA.

[… ]

With Canada and Mexico officially starting the process for their respective ratifications of the USMCA, it will likely not be long before a USMCA Implementation Act is introduced in Congress. However, the USMCA is much more than a simple agreement for “free trade” between three countries; it is the architecture for the regional and economic integration of North America, similar to the early trade deals and treaties in Europe that gradually morphed into the supranational European Union of today.

[Comment: USCMA is a turd — it is TPP warmed over and actually worse than TPP. Do not ratify it — unelected bodies will usurp national sovereignity. It will be birthing a North American version of the totalitarian EU.]

Edward Snowden: With Technology, Institutions Have Made ‘Most Effective Means of Social Control in the History of Our Species’

NSA whistleblower Edward Snowden said Thursday that people in systems of power have exploited the human desire to connect in order to create systems of mass surveillance.

Snowden appeared at Dalhousie University in Halifax, Nova Scotia via livestream from Moscow to give a keynote address for the Canadian university’s Open Dialogue Series.

Right now, he said, humanity is in a sort of “atomic moment” in the field of computer science.

“We’re in the midst of the greatest redistribution of power since the Industrial Revolution, and this is happening because technology has provided a new capability,” Snowden said.

“It’s related to influence that reaches everyone in every place,” he said. “It has no regard for borders. Its reach is unlimited, if you will, but its safeguards are not.”

Without such defenses, technology is able to affect human behavior.

[… ]

“We don’t sign up for this,” he added, dismissing the notion that people know exactly what they are getting into with social media platforms like Facebook.

“How many of you who have a Facebook account actually read the terms of service?” Snowden asked. “Everything has hundreds and hundreds of pages of legal jargon that we’re not qualified to read and assess — and yet they’re considered to be binding upon us.”

“It is through this sort of unholy connection of technology and sort of an unusual interpretation of contract law,” he continued, “that these institutions have been able to transform this greatest virtue of humanity — which is this desire to interact and to connect and to cooperate and to share — to transform all of that into a weakness.”

“And now,” he added, “these institutions, which are both commercial and governmental, have built upon that and… have structuralized that and entrenched it to where it has become now the most effective means of social control in the history of our species.”

“Maybe you’ve heard about it,” Snowden said. “This is mass surveillance.”

“The Coalition Has Come to an End”: Merkel’s Government on Verge of Collapse After SPD Chief Resigns

Merkel’s shocking announcement last week that she was “unretiring” after the CDU’s abysmal showing in last week’s EU Parliamentary election — the party’s worst result ever in a national election which cost the CDU/CSU’s position as the largest party in the bloc’s largest legislative body — and as a result the Chancellor would withdraw her support from her own hand-picked successor, Annegret Kramp-Karrenbauer, or AKK, has itself been throw into chaos after the leader of Chancellor Angela Merkel’s junior coalition partner, the SPD, resigned on Sunday from her party’s top posts, raising the possibility that Germany’s embattled government could collapse.

Andrea Nahles, who heads — or rather headed — the centre-left Social Democratic Party (SPD), came under intense pressure after voters handed the party its worst European election results a week ago as Europe continues to revolt against establishment parties.

As Smoke Clears on EU Elections: CFR Highlights Nationalist-Globalist Clash

Laura Trevelyan, an anchor and correspondent with BBC’s World News channel, played host to a Council on Foreign Relations conference call on May 28 regarding the results of the recent elections for Members of the European Parliament (MEPs). The featured experts for the conference call were CFR senior fellow Charlie Kupchan and James Goldgeier, a visiting senior fellow at the CFR. Following their initial analysis, Kupchan and Goldgeier took questions from callers — academics, journalists, activists — all of whom were clearly on the anti-nationalist, Europhile wavelength.

On the same day, May 28, the CFR’s Council of Councils issued a Global Memo on the elections entitled “The Battle for Europe’s Soul.” Not surprisingly, both of the CFR evaluations of the MEP races heaped scorn on the nationalist and populist parties that had scored huge gains in the elections, repeatedly referring to the growing opposition to the European Union’s dictatorial rule as being inspired by “far right” ideology. By contrast, the globalist/socialist coalition of parties that have dominated the EU since its birth are referred to as “centrist,” “center-left,” and “center-right” — you know, the supposedly sensible, rational people who believe in political-social-economic “integration” and “an ever closer union.” Even the radical Greens, who would push Europe back into the Stone Age with their enviro-fanaticism, are now considered “mainstream” by the CFR analysts.

[… ]

Of course, we wouldn’t expect the CFR double-domes to admit that the so-called horror and chaos that Britain has been experiencing for the past three years has resulted not from Brexit, but from the sabotage of Brexit by the globalists of the CFR and their COC sister organizations, who have been determined from the start to insure that the Brexit never actually happens.

CFR Globalists Openly Revealed Their Delay-Delay Sabotage Plan

The New American has repeatedly reported on statements by leading globalists concerning their strategy to prevent the carrying out of the will of the British voters, as expressed by the Brexit referendum.

In an August 18, 2016 article entitled, “Is New Brit PM Theresa May Sabotaging Brexit With Endless Delays?” we quoted a number of prominent one-worlders who advanced the idea that Brexit could be turned into “Bremain” by thwarting the exit process with non-stop delaying actions.

‘Ashamed’ of Brexit, Elton John Declares He’s ‘Not an English Idiot’

Sir Elton John doesn’t like being a Brit anymore because so many of his countrymen do. He’s upset that the U.K. voted for Brexit and, according to The Guardian, he told an audience in Verona, Italy that “I’m ashamed of my country for what it has done.”

The musical memorialist for “dead blondes” went on “I am sick to death of politicians, especially British politicians. I am sick to death of Brexit.” You hear that, Britain, get your act together, because Elton just can’t work like this!

But the hissy fit’s big crescendo was yet to come. “I am a European,” he exclaimed. “I am not a stupid, colonial, imperialist English idiot.”

Aren’t you Brits ashamed? You nurtured him and gave him the freedom and security to become a musician. Then you bought his records and made him a rich man who can and does live wherever in the world he wants. You even made him a Commander of the Most Excellent Order of the British Empire (quite the ceremony: Elizabeth, Britain’s longest reigning monarch, honoring Britain’s longest reigning queen.) But you refuse to let go of the last shreds of your culture. Won’t you for once think about what this is doing to Elton?

Pompeo Again Threatens Germany: Drop Huawei or Intelligence Sharing Blocked

Secretary of State Mike Pompeo has again put Germany and the rest of Europe on notice regarding China’s controversial telecom giant Huawei, warning they could be cut off from crucial US intelligence sharing over Huawei’s 5G networks now being built.

Pompeo issued the ultimatum following a meeting with German Foreign Minister Heiko Maas on Friday, saying the decision on whether to allow Huawei equipment would have severe consequences, according to Reuters. His words came at the start of a five-day European tour: “They [Germany] will take their own sovereign decisions, [but we] will speak to them openly about the risks… and in the case of Huawei the concern is it is not possible to mitigate those anywhere inside of a 5G network,” Pompeo said.

UK: ‘Historic Moment’ As Brexit Party Tops Westminster Polls for First Time

Nigel Farage’s newly-formed Brexit Party have sensationally topped the opinion polls in national elections for the first time, with Nigel Farage hailing it as a “historic moment”.

The poll by Opinium showed that, in the event of a general election, the Brexit Party would be the largest party in Parliament with 26 per cent of the vote.

The Labour Party came second on 22 per cent and the governing Conservative Party in third place on 17 per cent, followed by the Liberal Democrats on 16 per cent. The Green Party received 11 per cent — a significant rise for them from just four per cent in the last Opinium poll.

Meanwhile, the anti-Brexit Change UK (CUK) party achieved just one per cent.

UK: Tory Leadership Shock: Key Brexiteer Candidate Surges Ahead of Rival Boris Johnson

THE Tory leadership race has taken an unexpected turn as Boris Johnson has been overtaken by one of his rivals, despite being labelled as the early contender to be the next Prime Minister.

Following Theresa May’s resignation announcement, the former Foreign Secretary was the instant favourite to replace her as next the Prime Minister. According to The Daily Mail, Environment Secretary Michael Gove has now edged ahead of Mr Johnson despite criticism from some within his party over his no deal Brexit stance. Mr Gove has now received the support of 26 MPs despite not publicly outlining his Brexit strategy.

One campaign source said: “Michael is ready to deliver Brexit at the earliest possible opportunity.

“Simply trying to go for a No Deal before the UK is properly prepared will lead to a general election with Jeremy Corbyn in Downing Street and risks Brexit being cancelled altogether.

“It’s not enough to believe in Brexit — you’ve got to be able to deliver it.”

Mr Gove received criticism for his caution over a no deal Brexit namely from Brexiteers, Priti Patel and Iain Duncan Smith.

In “Jaw-Dropping” Speech Malaysian PM Says “No Evidence” Russia Shot Down MH17

In unexpected statements Malaysia Prime Minister Mahathir Mohamad has questioned the methodology behind Dutch investigators who produced what the West considers the authoritative report on the tragic shoot down of Malaysian Airlines flight MH17 in 2014 while flying over war-torn eastern Ukraine. He criticized that the Dutch-led Joint Investigation Team (JIT) seems “to be concentrated on trying to pin it on the Russians”.

The Malaysian leader told reporters at the Japanese Foreign Correspondents Club (FCCJ) in Tokyo on Thursday “They are accusing Russia but where is the evidence?” Mahathir said his country accepted that a “Russian-made missile” shot down its civilian airliner, killing all 283 passengers and 15 crew members on board, but that “You need strong evidence to show it was fired by the Russians.”

Muslim Taxi Driver in Meerut Admits to 250 Murders of Non-Muslims in Last Four Months; On an Average Two Murders Per Day

Jolly Sharma | HENB | Meerut | July 2, 2019:: In a shocking confession, a Muslim man arrested on charges of murder has claimed to having killed about 250 people in the past four months, police said on Thursday, adding that the matter was being investigated.

The accused, identified as Salim, is a middle-aged taxi driver in this Uttar Pradesh district who, along with an accomplice, used to murder his passengers and pocket away all valuables, according to police. The murdered passengers are mostly non-Muslims and obviously from Hindu community. The count of murders stands on an average two murders per day. The Taxi driver also used to offer five Namaj as per reports so far available. But, the Drivers Namaz and Murder could not coincide anyway by the grace of Allah!

“During the interrogation, Salim said that he had killed about 250 people in the past four months,” Meerut Senior Superintendent of Police Dipesh Juneja said.

“We laid hands on the killer during the course of investigation of a dual murder that took place on February 14,” he said.

“The bodies of a medical representative and a junior engineer were found on the city outskirts. While we were still carrying out the investigation, the cell phone of the slain medical representative was found to be back in use, prompting us to track down the caller.”

Police were now trying to trail Salim’s accomplice in the crime…

The Forgotten Genocide Awaiting Again?

South African whites are easily hoodwinked. This of course is because the international media usually turn a blind eye to atrocities committed against whites by Africans, because it is not the “flavor of the month”. Even so-called political scholars will tell you in detail about the genocide of the Huti’s and Tutsi’s, but they are totally ignorant about a white refugee crisis a mere 40 years ago.

The flight of 500 000 Portuguese from Angola and 750 000 from Mozambique after vicious racial attacks is one of history’s “secrets”. It is now 40 years later — will the white flight from South Africa also become one of the world’s political “secrets” because it is politically incorrect even talking about it? It is, after all, again a racist, African scenario which the United Nations choose to ignore.

The Portuguese call it the greatest exodus in the history of Africa. Not even the Congo during Uhuru in the 1960’s where 90 000 whites had to flee for their lives between January and July, can compare with the human tragedy of the Portuguese in Angola and Mozambique in 1975.

South Africa, Brazil and Portugal at the time rushed to the aid of the more than one million Portuguese trapped in Angola and Mozambique. In July the Brazilian airline, Varig, however, ceased its flights through Luanda to Rio, which were already fully booked to mid-October.

Latest Outrageous Request From Indicted Judge Who Released Criminal Illegal Alien Shows No Remorse

The Boston Herald is reporting on the latest request from the Massachusetts judge who is suspended for allowing a criminal illegal alien to go free. In fact, she let the man go free down a back stairway of the courthouse!

Her lawyers just requested that her pay be reinstated:

Joseph, who has pleaded not guilty to charges, has an annual salary of $181,328.

In a motion to reconsider filed Thursday, first reported by the Boston Globe, her attorneys Michael Keating and David Kluft ask that Joseph’s suspension be with pay. They argue withholding her salary runs counter to the presumption of Joseph’s innocence and undermines the court’s stated position about not offering an opinion on the case.

Prior to this, request the judge refused to take a plea deal so now she faces up to 20 years behind bars. Either this judge is in denial about how much trouble she’s in or she is just stubborn. She’s clearly an activist judge who believes in open borders and sanctuary cities hence the release of a criminal illegal alien onto our streets.

An Excerpt From George Neumayr’s New Book, “The Political Pope.”

Leftists frequently turn up at the Vatican, often invited by one of Pope Francis’s closest advisers, the socialist Honduran Cardinal Oscar Rodriguez Maradiaga. Before the pope’s visit to the U.S., a group of left-wing activists and officials from unions and organizations such as the SEIU and PICO (an Alinskyite group founded by the liberal Jesuit Father John Baumann) descended on the Vatican to confer with curial officials about the trip. Around the same time, over 90 members of the U.S. Congress sent Pope Francis a letter, urging him to focus upon politically liberal themes. The leader of this group was Rosa DeLauro, a Catholic who supports abortion rights.

In 2016, it was revealed through disclosures by WikiLeaks that the billionaire socialist George Soros bankrolled much of this lobbying. He spent hundreds of thousands of dollars in an attempt to shape the pope’s visit to the U.S. According to the leaked documents, Soros’s Open Society Foundation sought to create a “critical mass” of American bishops and lay Catholics supportive of the pope’s priorities. The documents made special mention of Maradiaga, a champion of PICO, as a useful ally for ensuring that the pope’s speeches in the U.S. pushed socialism

The hacked e-mails exposed the depth of the plotting:

Pope Francis’ first visit to the United States in September will include a historic address to Congress, a speech at the United Nations, and a visit to Philadelphia for the “World Meeting of Families.” In order to seize this moment, we (Open Society) will support PICO’s organizing activities to engage the Pope on economic and racial justice issues, including using the influence of Cardinal Rodriguez, the Pope’s senior advisor, and sending a delegation to visit the Vatican in the spring or summer to allow him to hear directly from low-income Catholics in America.

In the e-mails, the Soros operatives make it explicitly clear that they view Pope Francis as a propagandist for their causes:

At the end of the day, our visit affirmed an overall strategy: Pope Francis, as a leader of global stature, will challenge the “idolatry of the marketplace” in the U.S. and offer a clarion call to change the policies that promote exclusion and indifference to those most marginalized. We believe that this generational moment can launch extraordinary organizing that promotes moral choices and helps establish a moral compass. We believe that the papal visit, and the work we are collectively doing around it, can help many in our country move beyond the stale ideological conflicts that dominate our policy debates and embrace new opportunities to advance the common good.

After the meeting, they rejoiced at the success of the meeting, informing John Podesta, the chairman of Hillary Clinton’s campaign:

‘As in the Days of Noah’

A short time ago, my wife and I were having lunch in a small restaurant on a Sunday, and nearby was a lady pastor, dressed in black clergy garb and collar. She was sitting with several couples around a large round table. It appeared this was a group from her church, having lunch after their service. As they ate, there was a lively discussion about “fundamentalist” Christians, and how deluded they are. “The problem,” this lady pastor laughed, “is that so many people are stuck in the mindset of what they have always been taught. But now we KNOW so much more. Now we have SCIENCE, which explains so many things that were mysteries to the Bible writers. If only these fundamentalists would open their eyes and adapt to the times!”

Here we had a modern, ultra-liberal lady pastor, (and very likely a practicing lesbian, based on other things we observed), surrounded by adoring members of her congregation, and she was instilling doubt in the minds of her flock — doubt that the Bible could be trusted, and more than that, she was actually holding Biblical Scripture up for open mockery and ridicule — along with anyone who would believe God’s Word. Now, you might think this was maybe a Unitarian Universalist gathering, and it could have been, but it wasn’t. It was a group of people from a MAINLINE so-called “Christian” denomination, and if I shared that denomination with you, you might be surprised. I won’t do that here. I’m trying to be tactful.

Bozell & Graham Column: Campus Crusade Against Christianity

A new survey of college students by the liberal-leaning Knight Foundation shows the future of the First Amendment doesn’t look so bright in America. It found 41 percent said “hate speech” should not be protected by the Constitution. Only 58 percent thought it should.

In fact, a 2017 survey out of UCLA found that out of 1,500 college students who were asked whether “hate speech” is protected by the First Amendment, only 39 percent correctly said yes. On campus today, it can be defined as “unsafe” to hear an opinion you don’t like. Unwelcome speech is compared to a physical attack.

Make no mistake. The Thought Police are gaining ground, dangerously.

The central question is what qualifies as “hate speech”? The standards can shift quickly. The Knight Foundation poll found that 68 percent of students believe the campus climate prevents students from expressing their opinions because of fears they might offend other classmates.

Justin Trudeau in Canada Moves to Ban Christians From Demonstrating in Public Under New Pro-Islam and Pro-LGBTQ+ Anti-Hate Speech Proposal

Legislation proposed in the Canadian province of Ontario would criminalize public displays by Christians deemed hateful to Muslims, the LGBT community and other victim groups designated by the radical Canadian Left.

While Christians in the U.S. were given a reprieve with the election in 2016 of Donald Trump; Canadian Christians have been suffering under the Globalist/Marxist rule of Justin Trudeau.

FROM BIG LEAGUE POLITICS: The bill, “Prohibiting Hate-Promoting Demonstrations at Queen’s Park Act, 2019,” bans any demonstration, rally or other activity that is deemed hateful by the Speaker from being permissible on legislative grounds — effectively insulating the government from Christian speech.

The nebulous nature of Canada’s anti-hate laws essentially give leftist legislators carte blanche to ban all Christian protest:

Louisiana’s Democratic Governor to Sign Pro-Life “Heartbeat Bill” Into Law

Louisiana’s Democratic governor, John Bel Edwards, will be signing the state’s fetal heartbeat bill into law, marking a significant break from the Democratic Party on the subject of abortion.

The heartbeat bill is similar to others that have recently passed throughout the country. It ultimately bans abortions once a fetal heartbeat is detected, typically around six weeks. This bill does not include exceptions for cases of rape and incest.

“Even though I know there are horrible crimes that are committed with rape and incest.… The child should not be killed and terminated because of the crime of the father,” said state Representative Valarie Hodges, who carried Senate Bill 184 in the House.

Governor Edwards has been a vocal supporter of pro-life legislation, ABC News reports. Following the state’s passage of the heartbeat bill on Wednesday, Edwards released a statement defending his decision to sign the bill.

Meet the LGBTQ Movement’s Biggest Sugar Daddy

Gill has poured approximately $422 million into LGBTQ causes over a period of three decades — more than any other one person including George Soros

As with many things, just follow the money … much of which, in this case, can be traced to one person.

His name is Tim Gill, 63, a software developer, one of many who rode the wave of the 1990s tech explosion to a spot near the top. Born in 1953 in Indiana, he moved to the Denver, Colorado area with his parents when he was a child, and has resided there ever since. He attended the University of Colorado at Boulder where he majored in computer science. Initially he cut his teeth with Hewlett-Packard. Then, in 1981, he used a $2,000 loan from his parents to start his own company, Quark, Inc., based in Denver.

Quark began producing quality desktop publishing software. The company’s flagship product was QuarkXPress, the first version of which was introduced in 1987. QuarkXPress quickly earned an industry-wide reputation as the best software package able to handle complex, graphics-intensive page layouts, and by the mid-1990s subsequent versions had been adopted by major newspapers and other print publications across the country. Tim Gill became a multimillionaire, whose name appeared on Forbes Magazine’s well-known 400 list.

A gay man, Gill had already begun involving himself in gay rights issues. The convergence of political and popular cultures of the 1990s were already tilting sharply leftward. In 1994, Gill created the tax-exempt Gill Foundation and, ten years later, the Gill Action Fund, the former in response to a 1992 ordinance, Colorado Amendment 2, which blocked the application of antidiscrimination laws to gays and lesbians. Thanks to the massive success of QuarkXPress, Gill was able to sink more and more money into gay rights causes, which included founding the Gay & Lesbian Fund of Colorado in 1996.

In 2000, Gill sold his 50% holdings in Quark for around $500 million, exiting the company to devote nearly all his time (and money) to the gay-lesbian agenda via his foundation. This included creating Connexion.org in 2003 to serve as a vehicle for engaging gays and lesbians in political activity. Connexion.org closed in 2011; by then much of its mission and that of other “transformative” organizations was accomplished. Popular culture now viewed homosexuality with fascination, and the political universe was coming around. Gill would “marry” his partner in Massachusetts in 2009 after “gay marriage” was legally recognized there. Shortly thereafter, we began seeing the letters LGBT — now LGBTQ.

According to Rolling Stone, Gill has poured approximately $422 million into LGBTQ causes over a period of three decades — more than any other one person including George Soros. This money has been used to create an extensive network of state-level organizations. The Gill Foundation has bankrolled academic studies, and has doubtless been a force behind the rise of “queer theory” in academia. It has also bankrolled litigation, field organizing, candidates for state and local offices, and supported outfits often with tame-sounding names like the Coalition for a Better Colorado that, to an outside observer, would seem to have come out of nowhere, full-blown, and with plenty of money.

Via his network, Gill contributed more than $1.3 million to Media Matters, $733,000 to the leftist Citizens for Ethics and Reform based in D.C., $175,000 to the leftist Center for American Progress and $519,000 to ProgressNow. Moreover: “Gill’s fingerprints are on nearly every major victory in the march to marriage,” writes Kroll in Rolling Stone, “from the 2003 Goodridge v. Dept. of Public Health case, which made Massachusetts the first state to allow gay marriage, to the Supreme Court’s Obergefell v. Hodges decision two decades later that legalized it in all 50.”

His Colorado Democracy Alliance, a collection of outfits founded in 2003 with three other leftist multimillionaires and structured to avoid campaign finance laws, flipped the Colorado state legislature from Republican to Democrat in 2004; a CDA-affiliated outfit with the Orwellian name Colorado Freedom Fund spent $500,000 to defeat a Republican gubernatorial candidate, Scott McInnes, primarily through negative ads. Gill’s activities have not been limited to his home state, obviously. He has flooded states such as Iowa and Pennsylvania with money “to stop the Rick Santorums of tomorrow before they get started.” In the former, his efforts led to the defeat of Danny Carroll, the Republican Speaker Pro Tem of the House; the latter, a much bigger target, cost him over $20 million, but in 2006 Santorum, whom Gill despises passionately because of past anti-gay remarks, went down to defeat.

Gill, who began as a shy, introverted, stereotypical tech nerd who shunned publicity, clearly became a master organizer promoting the LGBTQ agenda and targeting its enemies for defeat, which typically meant promoting Democrats over Republicans. His methods employed three basic principles.

Brethren, can you imagine how our Lord feels when He sees the emotional and physical abuse of the little children; and he sees the parents of these children being complicit — all in the name of Political Correctness? How did we arrive here at Drag Queen Story Hour at the Public Library?

It’s bad enough that some libraries encourage little children to perch on the laps of transvestite males as they hear fables about well-adjusted homosexual families, in the so-called “Drag Queen Story Hours” featured in some communities. And then those guys turn out to be convicted child molesters, as recently happened in Houston.

But other libraries have devised another method for mental molestation of youth. Middle and high-schoolers are invited to a private “safe space” session with a garishly —dressed she-male to explore what “drag” is all about. And adults are excluded — until the public hears and cries “foul.”

The outrageous promotion of depravity by this library doesn’t end with private corruption sessions. The teen page is dominated by pro-homosexual and pro-gender confusion propaganda, with an entire “LGBTQIA” section that links to many groups specializing in child endangerment: GLSEN, the Human Rights Campaign, the local “gay” youth center (open to children as young as 12 without parent knowledge), the Nationwide Children’s Hospital THRIVE program, which has only one answer to gender confusion in kids — start the dangerous drugs of “transition” ASAP; pro-homosexual legal groups like ACLU and Lambda Legal, and information trashing “conversion therapy.”

Are there no conservatives or people of faith in Delaware County? This page has not a single resource with an opposite ( aka, safe) viewpoint. They are uniformly urging minor children to go full steam ahead into the high-risk behaviors of homosexuality or gender “transition.”

The LGBT Juggernaut: Time for Christians to Face Our Failure

Note: The following contains candid discussion of male homosexual behavior.

The dreaded moment is upon us. The Equality Act has passed out of committee in the U.S. House of Representatives. It will pass the House and move to the Senate. The White House (a house divided) has criticized the bill, but has not threatened to veto it. Christians who backed this president must contact him and demand that. Call your congressmen and your senators. If we stay silent, this may become law. And that would be the end of freedom for Christians in America.

Read the bill for yourself here.

“Public accommodation,” “federal funding,” “education,” and “anti-discrimination protection” … all nebulous words that regulators can expand to mean anything.

LGBT activists will demand access to children through school curricula. They will insist upon the right to groom them and coax them into identifying as gay or trans. In essence they lay claim to the right to prepare them to be their future sex partners. They will force people who experiment with gay sex to remain in the gay sex pool, via laws that ban any counseling to help them leave.

The Equality Act will force everyone to lie. We will have to tell innocent children that they have two daddies, when they do not. Then we will have to tell confused teenagers that they are girls when they are boys. We will have to tell miserable and suicidal homosexuals that their unhappiness derives from external homophobia. The solution to their unhappiness would actually be to stop engaging in homosexuality and pursue a normal heterosexual life.

People should oppose this act with all their energy because it will affect everyone in America. So speak up and oppose it. Call your congressional representatives. Be vocal.

The Transformed Lives of Former LGBT People

The “straight” world — shorthand for those who do not identify as LGBT — has bought into lies asserting the normalcy of homosexuality, transgenderism, and the redefinition of marriage to such an extent that disagreeing with the new LGBT dogma is no longer just a violation of “political correctness” but is increasingly criminal.

To not honor sodomy is seen as perverse, and to seek to prevent the mutilation of the sexual organs of your children is deemed “child abuse,” an offense that can trigger losing custody of your child.

The “straight” world is lost, having made itself subservient to LGBT masters who have dubbed them “Cisgender,” a term that makes being in harmony with nature sound abnormal.

What is the answer for a beguiled world that lacks the requisite intellectual curiosity, allegiance to truth, and will to free itself? Where will it come from?

The beacon that will lead society out of this thick darkness may very well arise from a surprise source: former homosexual and transgendered persons.

Transgenderism: Dangerous Child Abuse

The “transgender” mental illness currently favored by the establishment and pushed by the controlled media is exceptionally dangerous for children, is child abuse, and must be stopped, the American College of Pediatricians (ACP) has announced.

The ACP—which is America’s respected and official organization of pediatricians and child healthcare professionals—has called on all educators and legislators to definitively reject the “transgender” madness once and for all.

Before and after: Female Ryland Whittington on the left, “male” Ryland Whittington on the right. From the “Progressives Today” website article “Transgender Toddlers: The New Parenting.”

In a positon paper published on the ACP website, titled “Gender Ideology Harms Children,” the organization “urges educators and legislators to reject all policies that condition children to accept as normal a life of chemical and surgical impersonation of the opposite sex. Facts—not ideology—determine reality.”

The paper, signed by ACP president, Michelle A. Cretella, M.D.; Vice President Quentin Van Meter, M.D.; and University Distinguished Service Professor of Psychiatry at Johns Hopkins Medical School, and the former psychiatrist in chief at Johns Hopkins Hospital, Paul McHugh, M.D., goes on to list eight points why the promotion of the “transgender” mental illness is such a danger.

Firstly, the ACP says, “human sexuality is an objective biological binary trait: ‘XY’ and ‘XX’ are genetic markers of health—not genetic markers of a disorder.”

The “norm for human design is to be conceived either male or female. Human sexuality is binary by design with the obvious purpose being the reproduction and flourishing of our species. This principle is self-evident,” the paper says, before continuing:

“The exceedingly rare disorders of sexual differentiation (DSDs), including but not limited to testicular feminization and congenital adrenal hyperplasia, are all medically identifiable deviations from the sexual binary norm, and are rightly recognized as disorders of human design. Individuals with DSDs do not constitute a third sex.”

Secondly, the ACP says, “no one is born with a gender. Everyone is born with a biological sex. Gender (an awareness and sense of oneself as male or female) is a sociological and psychological concept; not an objective biological one.

“No one is born with an awareness of themselves as male or female; this awareness develops over time and, like all developmental processes, may be derailed by a child’s subjective perceptions, relationships, and adverse experiences from infancy forward. People who identify as ‘feeling like the opposite sex’ or ‘somewhere in between’ do not comprise a third sex. They remain biological men or biological women.”

Thirdly, the ACP addresses the increasingly common idea among some elements of society which lay undue emphasis on children, who, encouraged by mass media promotion of “transgenderism,” simply play along with nonsense because they are easily led.

5G: A Plan to Depopulate Earth?

Consumer use of the technology which has made our lives so much easier is not the only important reason you need this information. A new 5G (5th generation) technology is about to inundate us with EMFs (electromagnetic fields/forces) which, according to scientific research, are much higher than allowed in most of the technologically sophisticated world. Will they de-populate America?

Comparison of our limit alongside other countries’ standards:

USA\Canada = 1000 microwatts /cm2 (same as ICNIRP 1998) Australia = 200 microwatts /cm2 Auckland (New Zealand) = 50 microwatts /cm2 Italy, Russia, Poland, Luxembourg, Paris (France), Hungary, Bulgaria, China, Switzerland = 2.4 to 10 microwatts /cm2 Salzburg (Austria) = 0.0001 microwatts /cm2

The research studies say that Russia, France, China, Italy, et al, set a legal limit of 10 microwatts emitted by towers. America’s limit is 1,000 microwatts — 100 times greater than other high tech nations allow out of concern for the health of their people. Brussels, Belgium, has banned 5G altogether… as have several California cities (northern California where the tech geniuses live).

This is not just a hard article to write, it is all but impossible — so please stay with me while I explain the difference between 1G, 2G, 3G, 4G and 5G EMFs and why it is critically important for you to know and understand why autism, Alzheimer’s, cancer and other diseases are rising at such alarming rates (scroll down to health risks). Scientific studies prove there is a connection between these diseases and EMFs and there are some things you can do to protect yourself. Use the links throughout this article and at the end of it.

[… ]

5G waves are ultra high frequency and ultra high intensity penetrates things like trees, buildings… and human bodies. In fact, scientific evidence has clearly found that human perspiration attracts 5G EMFs to our bodies. Thus, 5G towers will be much smaller but they will be much closer to one another… like every few houses on your block. In fact the street lamps outside of your home will probably become 5G towers.

According to CBS News, it is estimated that the big cell phone companies will be putting up at least 300,000 of these small towers at a cost of hundreds of billions dollars to meet 5G activation requirements. Guess what that will do to your monthly cell phone bill. The new 5G uses an as yet untested bandwidth called “millimeter wave” (MMW) and poses more health risks than 4G — and according to hundreds of scientists internationally, the risks of 4G are substantial. MMW is a pulsed radio wave of extremely high frequencies of 30 GHz and 300 GHz. There have been no government safety tests for 5G technology — which is why so many nations limit the microwatt frequencies to 10 while America considers microwatt exposure up to 1000 to be safe. And that is the information that has been given to President Trump: “It is safe to expose the public to up to 1000 microwaves.”

Paul Craig Roberts: Western Supremacy is on Its Way Out

Countries without a homogeneous population are already disadvantaged by disunity, but to bring in massive numbers of peoples who have every reason to hate you is insanity. Once here, the hatred is weaponized against white people by Identity Politics.

  1. IMPORTANT

    A German politician, a member of Angela Merkels CDU, who told critics of her illegal mass immigration policy, they “can leave Germany if they don’t like it”, has been found shot dead in his garden at the weekend (head shot). The police are puzzled about the motive.

    Walter Lübcke CDU Kassel empfiehlt Kritikern der Asylpolitik Deutschland zu verlassen 14.10.2015 – YouTube

    BILD: Regierungspräsident Dr. Lübcke stirbt durch Kopfschuss – Hintergründe?

    https://osthessen-news.de/n11619325/bild-regierungsprasident-dr-luebcke-stirbt-durch-kopfschuss-hintergruende.html

    These are just some of the most recent reported crimes committed by immigrants.

    • It’s a good start. I wonder if he remembered to say his shahada, otherwise no virgins for him.

    • I am positive the German security forces can turn this into a Reichstag Fire event.

      Forensic evidence notwithstanding.

      • That’s a myth.

        Even official German State TV send a Docu. where it was said that the guy who was caught must be the firemaker.

  2. In Moscow, a special forces soldier who fought in Syria was killed in a mass brawl with 10 immigrants from the Caucasus.

    When Putin justified the “Syrian campaign,” he said that it was necessary “to defeat the enemy on the far approaches.” The irony is that now the enemy in the “heart of the country” is killing Putin’s soldiers.

    • 20 years ago i saw a docu.
      A reporter asked a Moscow Citizen what he want for the future.
      He said: Move away from Skinheads and Caucasians…

      • Skinhead movement destroyed. For them, invented a “Russian” article 282.
        Caucasians multiplied, spoiled, raised their tails and released them on the streets.

  3. “Home Secretary Sajid Javid to announce that he will do whatever it takes to stop the flow of immigrants.”

    No he won’t. If it comes to the point in which the Navy has to sink the boats to keep them from coming the politicians won’t do “whatever it takes”.
