Gates of Vienna News Feed 7/10/2019

Germany and the European Commission are insisting that EU member states take in their share of migrants. The new demands come as a response to the latest “rescues” of Mediterranean migrants by NGO migrant-ferry vessels.

In other news, Sir Kim Darroch, the British ambassador to the US whose derogatory remarks about President Trump were leaked, has resigned.

Antifa Thug Arrested and Indicted on Multiple Charges for Brutal Beatings at Portland Protest in June

One of the violent, far-left thugs who participated in the Portland Antifa beatings was arrested identified and arrested by police on Tuesday. The antifa thug was involved in the lesser publicized mob assault on Adam Kelly, whose head was split open and required stitches and staples.

Even more incredible, Multnomah County district attorney Rod Underhill’s deputy DA, Melissa Marrero, actually pursued the case and has now returned an indictment against the perp.

Big Tech Leftists Are Eliminating Conservative Content on the Internet: Here is What Trump Can Do to Stop the Bias

Who could have imagined just three years ago that Facebook, Twitter, Amazon and Google would set out to eliminate free speech in America today?

Since the 2016 election the tech giants have worked diligently and cooperatively to eliminate conservative voices online.

The Gateway Pundit has written extensively about the blatant discrimination against conservative publishers online. This influence map below by Columbia Journalism Review shows the top influencers during the 2016 election.

And here, after two years of purposeful targeting, is that same map showing the conservative publishers who have been targeted and censored by Facebook since 2017.

Breaking: Appeals Court Dismisses Emoluments Clause Lawsuit in Huge Win for President Trump

The Fourth Circuit Court of Appeals on Wednesday dismissed a lawsuit filed by DC and Maryland claiming President Trump is violating the Emoluments Clause of the Constitution because foreign government officials stay at Trump’s DC hotel.

The attorneys general of DC and Maryland brought the lawsuit against Trump two years ago and the ruling from a unanimous three-judge panel asserting they lack the legal standing to bring the lawsuit is a big win for Trump.

The emoluments clause is a provision that bars US presidents from accepting gifts from foreign governments without permission from Congress first.

Don’t be Fooled: Tulsi Gabbard is a Globalist in Sheep’s Clothing.

For all the hype about Gabbard’s “moderate” and “reasonable” policies, a look at her stances reveals her to be just as radical as the majority of her fellow Democratic presidential hopefuls.

Furthermore, Gabbard’s policies on key issues come right out of the globalist playbook. That is, they are designed to subtly push America further down the path to world government.

Gabbard is, as her own website puts it, “a top leader in fighting for urgent action to address climate change.”

“I support the carbon neutrality goals of the Green New Deal and the awareness it has brought across the country on the critical issues of energy independence and the climate crisis,” Gabbard has said.

The Green New Deal is the latest spin put on the effort to bring America under the heel of a totalitarian, Big Brother socialist state with the power to tell us what we can eat, what type of car we can drive, and what job we’re allowed to have.

As The New American has detailed, The Green New Deal is nothing more than a rebranding of the UN’s Agenda 21, a “comprehensive blueprint for the reorganization of human society” that seeks to completely restructure government, economy, and social institutions with the purported aim of combatting climate change and establishing “sustainable development.”

The proponents of world government love the climate-change issue because it gives them the perfect justification for eliminating national sovereignty. Individual countries can’t be trusted to regulate their own carbon emissions, they argue. We need a global regulatory body with the power to keep every country in line!

Climate change hysteria also justifies totalitarianism. Since every human action can be said to affect the environment in some way, all human activity must then be subject to government control in order to prevent mankind from destroying the planet.

Gabbard’s take on border and migration issues is far from what any conservative or patriot would consider “moderate” or “sane.” The Hawaii congresswoman’s immigration platform is the same open-borders agenda being pushed by most of her party.

Elizabeth Warren Targets a Prominent GOP Donor to Pro-Israel Causes

Liz Sheld at American Greatness noticed a tweet from 2020 Democratic presidential candidate Senator Elizabeth Warren (D-MA), where she takes credit for urging the Justice Department to open an investigation into a prominent Republican donor on the Trump Inauguration Committee.

I called for an investigation into Elliott Broidy’s actions surrounding president Trump’s inauguration last year. Now a real investigation is happening. This is exactly why I’m fighting to end corruption in Washington. https://t.co/x7I43PuwQo

— Elizabeth Warren (@ewarren) July 8, 2019

Regardless of the merits of the case, it’s unseemly—and un-American—for Democrat politicians to use their Deep State friends in the US Attorney’s office to target their political opposition.

“Warren is now making a campaign issue of an investigation that she demanded of a political opponent who has yet to be charged with a crime, much less convicted,” RedState’s Streiff wrote about Warren’s tweet.

The Democrats’ aggressive targeting of Trump donors is an effort to frighten large contributors from funding the president’s 2020 campaign, non-profits or SuperPACS. They hope to use the threat of federal prosecution to starve their political opposition of money.

Googlers Petition “To End Google’s Business With Breitbart, “ One Thousand Employees Co-Signed

Google employees work to damage Breitbart News for political reasons

Project Veritas has received and published documents from an insider at Google. The documents show Google employees discussing a letter asking Google leadership “to end Google’s business relationship with Breitbart.” This is the fifth release in a series of document releases from insiders at Google.

According to the documents, the letter was co-signed by over one thousand Google employees. Breitbart News has published similar materials which reportedly show a group at Google “sought to strike at Breitbart News’ revenue by kicking the site off Google’s market-dominating ad services.”

Said Project Veritas founder James O’Keefe:

“Google basically says they are impartial publishers of content and therefore are not liable for any content they publish. But these documents show that they are anything but impartial.”

Islam: America’s Trojan Horse

The Islamic doctrine of Hijrah or conquest via immigration is still alive, active and well. The recent arrival of Muslim migrants in Western countries, who don’t migrant here to embrace our Western civilization, but to enforce their own barbaric dogma on the host country has been compared to a Trojan Horse.

The Islamic hydra, with Saudi Arabia and the oil-money bloated Emirs and Sheiks of the Persian Gulf lead the Sunni charge from one side and the end-of-the-world bomb-seeking Shiites of the Islamic Republic of Iran along with its proxies of Hamas, Lebanese Hezbollah, Houthis of Yemen and the Sadrists in Iraq closing from the other side, have the intention of devouring the free world.

Meanwhile, America is under the effect of Islamic subversion, Muslim escapees of the misery of Islamic countries, exhibit such incredible gall and audacity as to shamelessly demand that their benevolent hosts surrender their liberty and legalize and adopt Sharia in our society.

The Muslims’ presence in countries such as Canada, Great Britain, the Netherlands, Sweden, Norway and Belgium, represent the tip of the sword of the Islamists protruding from the Trojan horse. Once Sharia is recognized to any extent, it will reach out to rule, not only on matters that concern Muslims, but also those that may involve a Muslim and non-Muslim. Presently, America is faced with a formidable enemy in a Trojan Horse: Islam.

Koch Brother Joins Forces With George Soros to Change America

The latest scuttlebutt in the U.S. capital is the allegation that at least one of the Koch Brothers, Charles — while differing politically with far-left Soros — is finding common ground with his fellow multi-billionaire.

While the libertarian-oriented Kochs — who believe in small and limited government — and the radical socialist George Soros have found a point of agreement: America’s end to its wars.

Soros has been a key source of funds through his Open Society Foundations for a number of left-wing protest groups, including the Center for Popular Democracy, a group that helped pay for demonstrations against the confirmation of Supreme Court Justice Brett M. Kavanaugh.

He is also suspected of funding more violent groups such as Antifa, who claim to be opposed to fascism but are involved in violence against President Trump’s supporters and against law enforcement.

Laura Loomer Sues Facebook for $3 Billion After Being Banned

Earlier this year, Facebook booted a batch of users including InfoWars founder Alex Jones, Nation of Islam founder Louis Farrakhan, conspiracy theorist Paul Joseph Watson, and conservative provocateur Laura Loomer. The social media service claims they violated company policies against dangerous individuals and organizations. The company’s announcement prompted a string of Twitter rants from President Donald Trump; a bizarre, widely panned “remember us” plea from Watson; and now a $3 billion lawsuit from Loomer.

In a lawsuit filed Monday in the Southern District of Florida, the self-described “most banned woman in the world” claims Facebook defamed her by labeling her dangerous. Loomer’s attorney, Larry Klayman, a right-wing activist who once filed a birther-fueled lawsuit to keep Barack Obama off the ballot in 2012, says his client is an “American heroine” who has been smeared by the tech giant.

“When you call someone a dangerous person, you’re in effect making them a pariah,” says Klayman, founder of Judicial Watch and Freedom Watch. “You’re making them untouchable.”

Major Red Flags Are Causing Many to Doubt Whether Justice Will be Done in the Jeffrey Epstein Sex Scandal

It won’t just be Jeffrey Epstein that will be on trial in the months ahead. As this scandal unfolds, the entire U.S. legal system will be on trial, and if justice does not prevail many Americans will lose faith in the system for good. And of course the rest of the world will be watching too, and so what are they supposed to think about us if we are not able to put Epstein and all of his dirty friends in prison? As I detailed in part three of this series, the evidence against Jeffrey Epstein and his partners in crime is mounting. If Jeffrey Epstein is put behind bars that will be a step in the right direction, but it will not nearly be enough. At this point it is exceedingly clear to everyone in America that many of Epstein’s famous friends also regularly had sex with underage girls, and they must be held accountable. In my most recent book I talked about how fundamentally broken our current legal system is, but if federal prosecutors are able to nail Epstein and all of his elite friends that were involved in these sex crimes, I might have to reconsider my position.

However, at this point I am not holding my breath.

Let me try to explain why. As I have already discussed in this series, one of Epstein’s closest friends during the heyday of “the Lolita Express” was Bill Clinton. And it turns out that the federal judge that will be presiding over Epstein’s case was appointed to his position by Clinton in 1998…

Richard Berman was appointed by Bill Clinton in 1998. He presided over Dinesh D’Souza’s case where D’Souza was convicted of re-imbursing friends to evade campaign contribution limits in a New York election.

Meanwhile, disgraced former FBI director James Comey’s daughter Maurene is one of the prosecutors in the case.

So will Berman recuse himself?

He should, but I doubt that it will actually happen.

Also, the fact that James Comey’s daughter is one of the prosecutors is a major red flag. I have a gnawing suspicion that something is up, and hopefully I am wrong.

But on a positive note, it was encouraging to see prosecutors call for anyone that has “information about Epstein’s conduct to come forward”…

Media Downplaying Crucial Autism Data

Autism surge coincided with overuse of childhood vaccines

Paul Patterson, a researcher who studied something called maternal immune activation (MIA), long ago established that there is a relationship between prenatal infectious or environmental exposures and ASD-like neurodevelopmental deficits in the offspring. When the CDC stepped up its efforts to vaccinate pregnant women in the mid-2000s, Patterson warned that it would be impossible to “predict how often a prenatal immune response might lead to fetal brain damage” and suggested that “vaccinating an entire population of pregnant women could affect thousands of children.”

In 2014, pharmaceutical industry authors alluded to the potential for a pregnant woman’s response to vaccination to trigger detrimental consequences in babies, admitting that “long-term follow-up data on the incidence of neurodevelopmental disorders in the offspring of mothers vaccinated during pregnancy” were “scant.”

Work by Harvard researchers indicates that the risks of undue immune stimulation are not confined to the prenatal period. These researchers hypothesize that exposure in early life to infection or environmental toxins prompts dysfunction of important, long-lived brain-immune cells called microglia and thereby contributes to the development of neurodegenerative disorders later in life. Proposing a sort of one-two punch, they suggest that a “first hit” that “likely begins perinatally” creates an “underlying vulnerability,” and a “second hit” later “unmasks the full pathology” and “kicks the microglia into overdrive.” They also propose that someone who has not received the “first hit” may not react with the same kind of “exaggerated” inflammatory response later on. Drawing out the implications of this work, a researcher has argued that it “certainly should make us rethink our vaccine policy, especially when it comes to vaccinating pregnant women and newborn babies.”

Chicago officials confirmed an alligator is living in Humboldt Park Lagoon after several people reported seeing the animal there Tuesday morning and others shared photos of it.

Chicago police were called to the 1400 block of North Humboldt Drive about 12:15 p.m. after someone called 911 “saying they saw a Facebook post saying there is an alligator in the lagoon area,” said Chicago police spokeswoman Karie James.

Police had “independently confirmed the alligator is in the lagoon and state reptile specialists” said it was 4 to 5 feet long, police spokesman Anthony Guglielmi said in a tweet. The animal was expected to be trapped Tuesday night “and relocated to a zoo for veterinary evaluation.”

Presidential Hopeful De Blasio’s Aide Sentenced for Child Pornography

A former close political associate of Democratic presidential hopeful and current New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio is expected to spend up to three years behind bars after pleading guilty to possessing kiddie porn.

Democratic Party operative and de Blasio aide, 31-year-old Jacob Schwartz, pleaded guilty to the most serious count against him: promoting a sexual performance by a child. He entered his plea in exchange for one to three years in prison, which is far less than what’s usually given to those convicted of child sex crimes and kiddie porn.

For months, Schwartz’s lawyers had been pushing for a no-jail sentence, but prosecutors wouldn’t budge on their recommendation of prison time.

Jacob Schwartz, who is said to have been a faithful employee in New York Mayor Bill de Blasio’s administration, was busted by New York police detectives and charged with child pornography for his alleged obtaining and storing of 3,000 images and 89 videos on his laptop computer.

The images included those of “young nude females between the approximate ages of 6 months and 16, engaging in sexual conduct…on an adult male,” according to court papers.

Conservative Social Media Commentator Mike Cernovich wrote on Twitter that the news media’s silence on Jacob Schwartz could have something to do with Schwartz having been a guest on CNN blaming Hillary’s loss on “racism” and Russia and his close ties to major players in the Democratic Party including former President Barack Obama.

Video: Trump Distances Himself From Accused Pedophile Epstein

‘I Haven’t spoken to him for 15 years…I wasn’t a fan’

President Trump commented on the ongoing Jeffrey Epstein case Tuesday, saying that he has not had contact with the accused sex trafficker for over fifteen years.

Answering a question thrown at him during an Oval Office meeting, Trump said “I knew him like everybody in Palm Beach knew him.”

“I mean, people in Palm Beach knew him. He was a fixture in Palm Beach. I had a falling out with him a long time ago. I don’t think I’ve spoken to him for 15 years. I wasn’t a fan.” Trump continued.

“I was not — yeah, a long time ago. I’d say maybe 15 years. I was not a fan of his, that I can tell you. I was not a fan of his.” Trump added.

The press has seized on comments made about Epstein by Trump way back in 2002, when he said “I’ve known Jeff for fifteen years. Terrific guy. He’s a lot of fun to be with. It is even said that he likes beautiful women as much as I do, and many of them are on the younger side. No doubt about it — Jeffrey enjoys his social life.”

Trump distanced himself from Epstein some time ago, however, and even banned Epstein from Mar-a-Lago years ago for inappropriate behavior toward young women.

Those facts have not prevented the press from desperately attempting to link Trump to Epstein and his sick perversions.

[Comment: Falling out — probably since the time Trump threw Epstein out of Mar-a-Lago because Epstein was hitting on a minor.]

British Ambassador to Washington Sir Kim Darroch Quits After Anti-Trump Comments Leaked

The controversial British Ambassador to the United States whose caustic remarks about President Donald Trump were leaked to the media at the weekend has resigned from his post.

Noting the enormous media storm generated around his remarks about President Trump and his administration, which he called “dysfunctional”, “clumsy”, and “incompetent” in a series of confidential briefing notes, Sir Kim resigned on Wednesday morning.

In a letter to his Foreign Office boss, Sir Kim said “the current situation is making it impossible for me to carry out my role as I would like”. The Foreign Office told Sir Kim he had acted with “dignity, professionalism and class”.

Responding to the resignation in Britain’s House of Commons Wednesday afternoon, Theresa May — to be replaced as Prime Minister this month — maintained her position of absolutely backing Sir Kim, thanking him for a “lifetime of service”. The Prime Minister also implied that the nation’s “values and principles” are “under pressure”, which is already being interpreted in the UK mainstream media as a further attack on President Trump…

Brexit leader Nigel Farage, who earlier called for Darroch’s resignation after his anti-Trump opinions became known, said Wednesday the resignation was the “right decision” and that he should be replaced by a diplomat who didn’t favour Britain remaining in the European Union, and who wanted to negotiate a good trade deal with the United States.

German Chancellor Angela Merkel Seen Shaking Uncontrollably Again, Renewing Health Concerns

Chancellor Angela Merkel of Germany was seen again shaking uncontrollably, the third time in less than a month, renewing concerns about her health.

Merkel, 64, was attending an event Wednesday with Antti Rinne, the prime minister of Finland. As the pair watched a military honor guard, her arms and legs trembled and she seemed to be mouthing something repeatedly. At one point, she clasped her hands in front of her, trying to control the shaking.

An hour later, at a press briefing with reporters, she declared: “I am well.”

[Comment: Kuru. Symptoms can only be delayed so long by expensive medication available to elite globalists. Best comment and reply to the comment: Seriouslady: “The German people would be well advised to send her packing. She has damaged Germany and Europe most likely irreversibly. The same would have happened here if Hillary had won.” The reply by pb2: “Definitely irreversibly.

Italy’s Salvini Denies His League Party Took Money From Russians

ROME (REUTERS) — Italy’s Deputy Prime Minister Matteo Salvini on Wednesday denied a media report that his far-right League party had sought millions of euros from Russian investors via a secret oil deal.

The U.S. website Buzzfeed said it had received an audio recording of talks in Moscow in October among three Italians including a close aide of Salvini, Gianluca Savoini, and three unidentified Russian men.

During their 75-minute meeting, the six men discussed a possible deal involving a Russian company selling oil worth some $1.5 billion at a discount to enable the League to pocket part of the difference, Buzzfeed said.

There was no evidence the transaction took place, the website reported.

Salvini had been in Moscow at the same time as the alleged meeting in a city hotel, but there was no suggestion he took part in the discussions. He denied on Wednesday that his party had received any illicit funding.

“Never taken a ruble, a euro, a dollar or a liter of vodka in financing from Russia,” Salvini said in a statement, adding that he would sue anyone who accused him of such crimes.

One Out of Seven Swedish Wildfires in 2018 Arsons — Four Out of Ten Started by Unknown Causes

Last year, Sweden was struck by the warmest summer in 200 years and forest fires broke out all over the country. Barbeques, smokers, lightning and sparks from trains and forest machines got most of the blame for the fire outbursts. Figures show that 14% of the Swedish wildfires were deliberately planted. In addition, another 39% of the fires started without any evident cause.

The causes of the fires devastating Swedish forests last year were debated all over media. The narrative of climate change raising temperatures and increasing draught was, and still is popular at Public Service and other left-wing MSM channels, claiming that Swedes are more and more worried about climate change.

Hindu Girl Abducted in Pakistan by a Sexually Driven Muslim Teacher

The endangered minority Hindu community n Islamic Pakistan.

Ramkumar Dalpat | HENB | Karachi | July 7, 2019:: A Hindu teenage girl has allegedly been abducted by her jilted Muslim teacher in Pakistan.

Pakistan Hindu Welfare Seva Trust president, Sanjesh Dhanja on Tuesday informed+ HENB a little bit later that the girl, identified as Payal, was allegedly abducted when she left home for her tuition class conducted by the sexually perverted Muslim teacher. The alleged abduction of Payal Devi D/O Manghu Mal Kohistani by Pakistan Hindu welfare society reported the matter in their website accordingly+.

In March this year, the abduction of two Hindu teenage girls had led to a war of tweets between the then external affairs minister of India Sushma Swaraj and Pakistan’s then federal minister for information and broadcasting Chaudhary Fawad Hussain.

Sindh chief minister’s special assistant Veerji Kolhi, a bonded labourer who is now a human rights activist and advocate for minority Hindus community in Pakistan, too uploaded the news about Payal’s abduction on his Facebook page late on Tuesday evening.

“A 18-year-and-7-month-old student Payal Kumari was allegedly abducted by her teacher Kamran Soomor from Thatta. She went for tuition on June 29 at 8am but didn’t return home by 2.30pm. Then her parents came to know that her teacher, Kamran Soomro was also missing,” he wrote on Facebook.

According to Veerji’s post, the police have registered an FIR and have also arrested the brothers of the alleged kidnapper — Imran, Amjad and Ayoob…

Illegal Alien Living in Sanctuary State Kills 39-Yr-Old Father of Two Young Girls on Way to Church Picnic

Two young girls will have to live the rest of their lives without their daddy because an illegal alien from Honduras who had already been ordered to be deported killed him. We hear an awful lot about the horrors of kids being held in detention centers on our southern border, who are forced to remain in custody until immigration agents can prove they aren’t victims of human trafficking. What about the kids who are American citizens, who’ve lost their mommy or daddy to an illegal alien who should never have been living in the United States in the first place? What about those kids AOC?

The Prarie State Wire reports — Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) has confirmed that Jose Rodriguez struck and killed Corey Cottrell, 39, of Normal, Illinois, on June 22, and is in the United States illegally. Border Patrol agents, in fact, issued the 27-year-old from Honduras an expedited removal order all the way back on April 17, 2013, according to a statement from ICE.

“Then on March 6, 2014, a federal immigration judge ordered him removed in absentia,” the statement said. “He is considered an ICE fugitive.”

Cottrell family friend and spokesperson Cheryl Wendland said the family was shocked at the news.

“It’s much worse than we all expected,” she said. “It means he’s been in Bloomington illegally for at least five years.”

Immigrant Invasion

Better late than never. Finally, President Trump woke up the Mexicans and said they better stop the mass migration of illegal aliens from Central America. In early June, he threatened tariffs of five percent, and increasing to 25 percent, if the siege continued. Mexico quickly promised, as the Washington Post called it, an “unprecedented crackdown.”

What that will mean in practice is anyone’s guess, but at least Trump made his point. He won’t let illegal aliens erase the borders of the United States.

And erasing it they have been. Some 670,000 illegals crossed the border between October, the beginning of fiscal 2019, and May.

That terrifying number, fast approaching 700,000, invites some obvious practical questions, such as how many murderers or tuberculosis cases crossed the border, and where the government is housing and feeding the horde. But more abstractly, it invites another. Given that hard-left Democrats and Deep State globalists want to keep the border open to permit the entry of future voters who could permanently alter the country politically, and given that Trump has done little, promises notwithstanding, to stop the invasion, does the border mean anything? That is, does a real nation with a sense of its history and purpose permit an invasion force the size of a midsize American city to cross its frontier illegally every two months?

Italian MP Wants NGO Migrant Ships ‘Seized and Demolished’

An Italian official has called for the seizure and demolition of ships operated by NGOs which are collecting migrants and ferrying them to Europe.

Giorgia Meloni, who serves in the Chamber of Deputies as leader of the nationalist-populist Brothers of Italy party, also asserted that NGO boats which defy bans on entering Italian waters should be sunk.

“The only way to stop the ships from leaving is with a naval blockade along the coast of Libya,” Meloni said in a video posted to social media. “Second, the NGO ships that violate Italian borders — yes, sink them. [They should be] seized and demolished.”

“Third, we need to activate guarded centers in Italy. What are guarded centers? Guarded centers means, when an illegal migrant arrives here, they don’t go wandering around.”

Meloni said migrants should be held in these centers for as long as it takes to evaluate if they have a legitimate claim to stay in Italy — or if they should be repatriated, which she believes should almost always be the case.

Meloni slammed fellow MP Erasmo Palazzotto, who oversaw a mission by an NGO vessel to defy a ban on bringing illegal migrants to Italian ports — the second violation of its kind in recent days.

Alert to All Private and Religious Schools

The Trump/DeVos Choice Plan is NO CHOICE at all.

If the $5 billion Tax-Credit Scholarships are passed in the Trump budget, say good-bye to your individuality as a private school or religious school because you must teach Common Core and Social and Emotional Learning. The future of your school will morph into a federal government charter school. Read more about the Trump/DeVos/Cruz Tax-Credit Scholarships here:, and here.

Equitable CHOICE means that ALL children under the school-wide definition can apply for these scholarships. Title I does not only mean poor children who are able to take advantage of tax-credit scholarships to enroll in ANY school of his/her CHOICE. Please recall DeVos’s guilty plea of tax credit dollars being “public” here:

“… any education program funded with taxpayer dollars is “public,” even if it is a private religious school that accepts students funded with publicly funded vouchers or tax credit programs.” (Emp. added.) (Source)

[…]

With the exodus of children from their neighborhood school, it appears that public schools will eventually financially collapse as children flee with 50% of funding from the local treasury that goes with them. As more public schools collapse financially, more charter schools are funded and expanded. We must question why money is being funneled into charter schools and NOT into our public school system. There’s something bigger in the works.

Thus, the expansion of charter schools with unelected boards, many for-profit and funded by investment companies, foundations, and private sources, will get a cut of your hard earned tax money which proves this is a move away from having local representatives invested in our schools. No voice, no vote for you the parent or citizen, which means privatizing education. As more Common Core Title I children continue to flood charter, private, and religious schools, accountability expands the “enforcement” mechanism of Title I in ESSA. This in turn, forces accountability toward an authorized charter school management team for all schools…charter, private, religious, daycare, and home schools with the possibility of elimination of public schools all together.

The monitoring and enforcement mechanism is called the ombudsman, the boogeyman in the ESSA regulations who devours your freedom.

Private and religious schools have stated repeatedly, we will NOT take the federal money! Guess what? You’ve been fooled. The money is side-stepped through a parent ESA. The “public” money is diverted by coming through the parent’s education savings account. If a school rejects the application of a federal Title I Tax-credit choice child, that’s a Civil Rights violation. See you in court…

When the “CHOICE” Ombudsman comes to town and cracks the whip…that means obey. Remember, there’s no such thing as a free lunch. The merger of all of these ESSA conditions drive home an idea that most people aren’t thinking about…total federal control of education in the United States.

Paul Joseph Watson: Facebook Issues New Policy Saying it’s Acceptable to Post Death Threats Against Me

Yes, really

Facebook has issued a new policy update saying it’s acceptable to post death threats and incite violence against me, despite this being a crime in the United Kingdom.

No, I’m not joking.

A Community Standards update published by Facebook states (emphasis mine); “Do not post: Threats that could lead to death (and other forms of high-severity violence) of any target(s) where threat is defined as any of the following:

Statements of intent to commit high-severity violence; or

Calls for high-severity violence (unless the target is an organization or individual covered in the Dangerous Individuals and Organizations policy)….”

Back in May, Facebook and Instagram banned me under the justification that I was a “dangerous individual”. They provided no evidence whatsoever that I had behaved in a “dangerous” manner or violated any of their policies.

Facebook has designated me a “dangerous individual” and now says it’s acceptable for its users to issue death threats against me.

This is a crime in the United Kingdom under the 1988 Malicious Communications Act which states, “Any person who sends to another person a letter, electronic communication or article of any description which conveys….a threat….is guilty of an offence.”

The largest social media company in the world with over 2 billion users literally says its fine to incite violence against me, despite this being illegal.

They are painting a target on my back.

Today’s America Takes ‘Pride’ In the LGBTQ Agenda, Infanticide, Debauchery, And Destroying Those Who Stand for God

Debauchery at every level is openly celebrated everywhere such as in the “gay pride” parades. Those attempting to witness to these people, trying as Paul did to save who ever he could reach with the message of the Gospel — these are treated worse than criminals. They are spit on, punched, shoved, swore at, and even laughed at and directly or indirectly abused by even the police. Just ask Rob Pue, publisher of Wisconsin Christian News how nasty, mean, and vile these lost souls can be. Rob’s recent article on ICB reveals in detail what goes on at these supposed “pride” parades.

Where has our “pride” in being a godly nation gone? What ever happened to We the People being a nation of good and kind-hearted people? Instead this nation as a whole has devolved into a people wallowing in a cesspool of filth — and celebrating that fact loudly and proudly. The more disgusting and perverted the actions and speech displayed publically — the better people seem to like it.

The U.S. is the largest exporter of porn in the world, and it is also the largest consumer of drugs, and close to or at the top for consumers of alcohol. The U.S. is also the world’s salesman for pushing the approval and support of all things LGBTQ.

The LGBTQ agenda is slowly taking over this country and everything in it. Lest you think this is an exaggeration, think on this: most major corporations have signed on to supporting the LGBTQ, and anyone speaking against them in a public setting can have their advertising pulled. Private citizens that dare to speak out can face violence against them, doxing, hate mail, death threats, and harassment on social media.

What about the transgenders in female sports, the gay Boy Scout leaders, the gay, lesbian, and transgender so-called pastors in the Church? How about the constant non-stop stream of LGBTQ indoctrination within our schools and even public libraries such as “Drag Queen Story Hour” for kids as young as three-year-olds?

The U.S. used to be the largest exporter of missionaries into the entire world, no longer. Do you see what and where our priorities as a nation have inexorably moved too? Perversion.

World Religion, the Last Piece Needed to Establish a World Order

“Dumb down enough of society to have critical mass; that is the only way Americans will be willing to having their values, attitudes, and beliefs transformed”

America is like a healthy body and its resistance is threefold: its patriotism, its morality, and its spiritual life. If we can undermine these three areas, America will collapse from within. —Joseph Stalin

Why a world religion?

The fate of mankind, as well as of religion, depends upon the emergence of a new faith in the future. —Pierre Teilhard de Chardin, New Age theologian and Jesuit priest

Marx understood that the state must control the children from infancy in order to instill the values and beliefs that would most benefit a totalitarian state. He also held the mistaken belief that he needed to destroy the churches. That was a mistake. Today, those who are trying to wrest control of the world realize they must control the religions of the world if they are to succeed. To that end, their scheme is to merge all religions together and, using the Hegelian Dialectic, bring them to an all-new world religion. Their journey to this end has taken an enormous amount of work and time, but it seems to be close to paying off.

Who dreams up a one-world religion?

Over the ages many have tried to conquer the world. Today, they are on course to achieving this Machiavellian plot. The Fabians, Bilderbergers, George Soros, United Nations, US Deep State, and various other nefarious people, groups, and NGOs (non-governmental organizations affiliated with the UN), have learned from Marx and others what is needed to accomplish the control of the world. They have learned from Helena Blavatsky, Annie Besant, Alice Bailey, Mikhail Gorbachev, Robert Muller, Aleister Crowley, and many more (including the ‘enlightened others’ through telepathic means) the teaching of the modern occult movement in the West. I will call them Globalists, because ‘all of the above’ are (or were when they lived) working to bring about a world government backed by a world religion.

As the New Age movement has spread around much of the globe, the easing of social mores, and a ‘let it all hang out’ attitude in movies and songs, a melding stew pot of churches seems to be a natural outcome. Yet it is unfolding, not by any symbiotic interaction, but by great scheming, planning, and seduction.

Those who have been leading us to a world government understand that the beliefs of the people must be erased and replaced in order to exchange the old religions with one that will allow the world leaders to control the worshippers. Bishop William Swing, founder of the United Religions Initiative (URI), decided that, “Since the purpose of religion is the service and worship of God, all religions and spiritual movements need to have a common language and common purpose — for all to worship a shared god.”[3] (emphasis mine)

[…]

To achieve a religion that fits all people, one of the key strategies will be to dumb down enough of society to have critical mass; that is the only way Americans will be willing to having their values, attitudes, and beliefs transformed from free-thinking individualists who put their beliefs in the Constitution and the Rule of Law to preserve Western culture, and become useful idiots to the UN. How do they go about this? Our values, attitudes, and beliefs must be “removed from our minds”. In simple language, brainwashing and programming.

“To achieve world government, it is necessary to remove from the minds of men, their individualism, loyalty to family traditions, national patriotism and religious dogmas.” [5]

[…]

How do the globalists plan on achieving a world religion? I have written about the mind-altering program BSTEP here. This is the modern version of John Dewey’s and the Frankfurt School’s work here. All of this is being carried out in our schools in order to wipe out our children’s values, attitudes, and beliefs, and replace those with the morally relative, political correctness of human animals.

Two Potentially Life-Friendly Planets Found Orbiting a Nearby Star

A tiny, old star just 12 light-years away might host two temperate, rocky planets, astronomers announced today. If they’re confirmed, both of the newly spotted worlds are nearly identical to Earth in mass, and both planets are in orbits that could allow liquid water to trickle and puddle on their surfaces.

Scientists estimate that the stellar host, known as Teegarden’s star, is at least eight billion years old, or nearly twice the sun’s age. That means any planets orbiting it are presumably as ancient, so life as we know it has had more than enough time to evolve. And for now, the star is remarkably quiet, with few indications of the tumultuous stellar quakes and flares that tend to erupt from such objects.

    «A public debate about these findings is not taking place. »

    [2] GROUP RAPE EXPLOSION

    Police «We did not know these group rapes before 2015, it came with the refugees and is exercised mainly by Arabs.»

    “Percentage suspected migrant Gang Rapers”

    2016 : 67,8%
    2017 : 67,1%

    «almost all were refugees»

    [3] Police Statistics 2018 no longer count group rapes.

    (This has been politically decided)

    The police basically say, that the rape explosion has meant that group rapes only account for 3% of all rapes.

    [4] Rapes currently being carried out by children as young as 11 years old. They raped a disabled woman, were sent home to their mummy and told not to do it again.

    Who’s to say they are 11 years old? They didn’t bring a passport when the arrived in the welfare system.

  3. Re: Media downplaying critical autism data.

    This piece refers to immunisation of pregnant women and babies. Can’t speak to the first, but the second sounds odd. Babies, I believe, cannot be vaccinated; in the Philippines, according to a recent report I heard, they are dying of measles because parents of toddlers, panicked by such reports, are not having them treated, so “herd immunity” is lost and the babies die.

  4. Ariana Grande Thinks She’s Risking Her Music Career by Criticizing Trump

    This, from a thankless, nether thoracic cavity whose fans flipping perished at the hands of fanatical zealots Trump is spanking like no other American President in this nation’s history?

    Methinks it’s her audience that is taking bigger risks by feeding the ego of this self-aggrandeizing Alpha Hotel.

  5. Major Red Flags Are Causing Many to Doubt Whether Justice Will be Done in the Jeffrey Epstein Sex Scandal

    Scanning through the comments from all four parts of the must-read series, it becomes clear that Epstein’s continued existence isn’t worth a plugged nickle. Why he hasn’t already succumbed to Arkancide defies the odds in Vegas.

    What really needs a dose of seriously disinfecting sunlight is the presence of (now) Labor Secretary Acosta after his own supposedly earlier role in Trump’s modeling agency and its importation of younger Eastern European women.

    If any mud begins spattering on Trump, little (aside from solitary confinement and singing like Pavarotti) may be left standing in the way of this billionaire teeny pimp cum blackmailer-of-the-stars taking the dirt nap.

    Look for this whole house of marked cards to come tumbling down if Maureen Comey doesn’t recuse herself from this trial—if only for reasons slightly more obvious than just facing potential jail time.

    This case has more third rails than the New York Metro subway. It’s no longer a matter of “who gets deep fried?”, it’s more of, “who’s on today’s captain’s plate?” If Trump can keep his nose clean and leave other more rapacious entities (e.g., that NYC corruption squad) free to ride herd on this entire shooting match, a merrily roiling cesspool should await 2020 voters. If anything, watching the MSM fall all over itself to NOT cover this appropriately should have immense entertainment value all on its own.

    If everything is timed exactly right, by then, merely appearing in the primaries with just a cardboard cutout of any Clinton should serve to radioactively enrich every DNC candidate within a country mile.
