Andrew Yang Becomes First Democratic Candidate to Condemn Antifa Attack on Conservative Journalist

Andrew Yang became the first Democratic presidential-primary contender to condemn last weekend’s mob attack in Portland that hospitalized a gay Asian journalist.

Andy Ngo, a right-leaning journalist who regularly records and reports on “antifa” protest activity, was treated for brain damage and for cuts and bruises to his face and neck after being mobbed Saturday by black-masked activists who grabbed his camera and pelted him with milkshakes and projectiles, as shown in video of the episode.

“I hope @MrAndyNgo is okay. Journalists should be safe to report on a protest without being targeted,” Mr. Yang tweeted Monday afternoon.

Andy Ngo: I’m Having Cognitive Issues Due to the Severity of That Attack by Antifa

You won’t doubt him after listening to him speak here. He doesn’t sound good.

He describes what he’s going through as “cognitive hiccups” but that risks minimizing the extent of it. Last night he told Tucker Carlson that he suffered a brain hemorrhage, so badly was he beaten. Some of his attackers used objects. Asked to estimate how many there were, Ngo could only guess from five to … 20.

Antifa Children of Hell Foretold in 1870

Eerily accurate prediction

Antifa’s creation, manufactured by government institutions, was foretold 150 years ago.

The fallacy of government neutral, “secular education,” and the hateful intolerance it would produce were predicted as inevitable by a pastor shortly after the Civil War.

He has since been proven right.

Antifa Member Threatens to Acid Attack Attendees of DC Free Speech Event

“I just want to blind as many of you c***suckers”

An Antifa supporter is threatening to acid attack attendees of the Demand Free Speech rally on July 6 in Washington DC.

The individual posted the threats to social media messaging app Telegram, commenting “I just want to blind as many of you c***suckers are possible [sic],” adding, “We already have the Muriatic acid, wax, and balloons.”

“I just want to toss as many balloons of Muriatic acid in the faces as many Proud Boys I can,” he added.

The threats prompted event co-organizer Enrique Tarrio to contact the FBI and DHS, who will now apparently be on site to provide security at the event.

Arizona Blocks Nike After Kaepernick-Complaint Sparks Virtue-Signaling Sneaker Ban

Just a week after Nike appeared to bow to Chinese authorities’ demands, halting the sale of a range of sports shoes in China after its Japanese designer showed support for Hong Kong protests in an Instagram post; the sportswear company has been implicitly banned from Arizona after nixing the launch of its “Betsy Ross Flag” sneakers after former football player Colin Kaepernick complained.

As The Wall Street Journal reports, the sneaker giant created the Air Max 1 USA in celebration of the July Fourth holiday, and it was slated to go on sale this week.

Austin Goes From Harmlessly Weird to Dangerously Stupid by Legalizing Camping on City Streets

Austin has long been the weird, liberal capital of Texas. The rest of Texas just sort of shrugs and puts up with it. Austin is quirky. Austin is odd. Austin lives in its own little world. Austin is also home to some of the best live music joints anywhere and you have to work pretty hard to find a bad restaurant in the city, so it’s not without its charms. The joke about Austin is that it’s nice because it’s so close to Texas (its the capital, a deep blue dot surrounded by a vast red sea). Austin is like that oddball cousin we all have. He’s there. He picks his nose and argues with light posts. But he’s nice and basically no threat to anyone, so whaddyagonnado?

Well, Texas’ weird cousin just became a threat to itself and others.

On June 20, the Austin city council passed what has to be one of the dumbest, most nonsensical ordinances since the city’s last idiotic, nonsensical ordinance (they pass a lot of ‘em, bless their hearts).

The city council made it perfectly legal to camp out on the city’s public spaces and sidewalks, under bridges and overpasses and, well, everywhere all over town — except, notably, parks and Austin City Hall.

Harmeet Dhillon later accused Mayor Ted Wheeler of calling on police to stand down.

Obama-Appointed Judge Orders VidAngel to Pay $62.4 Million to Hollywood for Trying to Protect Viewers From Graphic, Violent Content on Its Streaming Service

District Court Judge André Birotte Jr., an appointee of Barack Hussein Obama, has reportedly ruled that the family-owned digital streaming service VidAngel must fork over $62.4 million to several large Hollywood studios for the “crime” of editing out sex, violence, bad language, and other filth from mainstream television shows and movies.

Even as Facebook continues to unlawfully censor content willy-nilly without consequence, VidAngel is now being punished for trying to clean up Hollywood entertainment and make it more family-friendly by cutting out all of the perversion.

According to reports, Disney, Lucasfilm, Warner Bros., and 20th Century Fox, all of which have been trying to destroy VidAngel for many years now, will soon be divvying up this $62.4 million judgment among themselves — assuming VidAngel is unsuccessful with its planned appeal of the ruling.

Back in March, a federal judge decided that VidAngel had violated “copyright laws” by allowing users of its service to watch Hollywood movies and television shows with all of the violence, sexuality, and profanity removed. This latest ruling sets the amount of damages owed for this violation — an amount that’s likely to put VidAngel out of business.

Report: Antifa Made up of ‘Privileged White Dudes’

Antifa bullies cover their faces partly to conceal the mostly white constituency of the organization, which has its roots in the far left of the English punk scene in the 1980s, a new report asserts.

“But when members of Antifa are arrested, the masks come off. And, as recent mugshots of Portland Antifa members show, these people are about as diverse as the Washington Generals,” writes David Marcus in a July 1 article in the Federalist.

While the mainstream media tend to treat Antifa as an ethnically diverse group of warriors against fascism and racism, this is an “absolute fabrication,” Marcus notes.

“Anyone with even a passing knowledge of Antifa has seen videos of their violent antics and can see for himself or herself that almost all of them are white dudes. Anyone who has ever been in their presence knows this too,” he said.

Brexit MEPs Take Seats in EU Parliament Three Years After Leave Vote, Turn Backs on Euro Anthem

STRASBOURG, France: Newly-elected Brexit Party Members of European Parliament turned their backs during the playing of the European Union’s anthem on Tuesday morning as they took their seats for the first time.

The Brexit Party, which was founded as a response to the failure of the British government to honour the result of the 2016 referendum where the British people voted for the country to leave the European Union, won the 2019 European Parliament elections in May. Its 29 Members of the European Parliament (MEPs) took their seats in the EU’s parliament for the first time Tuesday, three years after the country voted to leave the bloc, and over three months after the country was officially meant to withdraw.

Brexit Party MEPs Turn Their Backs on EU Anthem

STRASBOURG (Reuters) — Members of Britain’s Brexit Party turned their backs on the EU anthem on Tuesday as it was played live at the opening of the European Parliament in Strasbourg, in a move that other lawmakers branded disgraceful and pathetic.

The party launched by prominent Brexiteer Nigel Farage in April won 29 seats in the assembly the following month, more than any other party in Britain, as it rode a wave of public anger over Prime Minister Theresa May’s failure to deliver the country’s departure from the bloc on schedule.

Seated in the back rows of the assembly, its parliamentarians turned their backs as musicians played the “Ode to Joy” from Ludwig Van Beethoven’s Ninth Symphony.

Delingpole: What I Learned on My Undercover Mission Among the Greenies at Glastonbury…

Look closely and you’ll see that it’s just a painted hardboard cut-out. But it does give you an idea of what we’re up against. Hanging on the wall nearby was a painting of Sir David Attenborough with a halo around his head. None of this, it goes almost without saying, was in any way tongue-in-cheek.

Whoever painted these pictures genuinely, sincerely believes that Greta Thunberg is a latter day Jesus whose every utterance we should aim to follow. And that Attenborough, far from being a whispery-voiced, gorilla-hugging, alleged walrus-murdering Malthusian, is in fact right up there with St Francis of Assisi.

Scarier than that, though, is the assumption behind those paintings. It’s one that pervades the whole festival, namely: every good and decent person in the world — including all 135,000 people at Glastonbury — knows that we have only 12 years left to save the planet and that if we don’t put on our hair shirts, drink Oatly instead of milk [bit ironic that, given that the festival is held on a dairy farm and was founded by a dairy farmer…], abandon plastic, recycle everything, and bomb the economy back to the dark ages, we are all totally doomed.

I find the intolerance of this green totalitarianism utterly terrifying.

But here’s the thing I learned during my three days among the green enemy: they are not hateful or evil, just woefully ill-informed.

Germany: Some Hate Speech ‘More Equal Than Others’

In June, the “Al Quds Day” march took place in Berlin. Al Quds Day, in the words of the late historian Robert S. Wistrich, is “The holiday proclaimed by Khomeini in 1979 to call for Israel’s annihilation” which “has since been celebrated worldwide…”

In Germany, Al Quds Day marches have been taking place in the country’s capital since the 1980s[1], first in Bonn and since 1996 in Berlin. On Al Quds Day in December 2000, more than 2,000 demonstrators in the Kurfürstendamm — a central boulevard in Berlin — called for “the liberation of Palestine and the holy city of Jerusalem”. In November 2002, only one year after 9/11, the march featured slogans such as “Death to Israel” and “Death to the USA”. At the march in 2016, the slogans were, among others, “Death to Israel”, “Zionists kill children”, and so on.

Despite nearly four decades of such rhetoric — the kind that is arguably capable — according to paragraph 130 of Germany’s Criminal Code, which prohibits hate speech — “of disturbing the public peace” by inciting “hatred against a national, racial, religious group or a group defined by their ethnic origins”, German authorities have continually refused to ban the Al Quds Day march.

Greek Election: Tsipras Under Pressure as Polls Point to Win for Centre-Right Rivals

GREECE’s under-pressure left-wing Prime Minister Alexis Tsipras is on course to lose the country’s impending general election to the centre-right New Democracy party, latest polls have indicated.

And New Democracy leader Kyriakos Mitsotakis has struck a confident note with five days to go before the vote, claiming the country was on the cusp of a “big leap forward”. A succession of surveys have put New Democracy on course to take between 38 and 39 percent of the vote, which, if replicated on July 7 — the date of the election — would put them close to an overall majority. Mr Tsipras’s party, Syriza, by contrast, is struggling to break the 30 percent mark.

Insects Are Dying Off in Europe in Apocalyptic Wildlife Omen, New Study Suggests

Amateur German researchers have been collecting bugs in the industrial area along the Rhine for decades. Their findings, which have been independently verified by other scientists, suggest that the world may witness its worst die-off since the dinosaurs were wiped out. Scholars have confirmed that over 40 percent of insect species could vanish.

The website points at the disturbing findings by ecology professor Hans de Kroon from the neighbouring Netherlands that he made around this time. He has studied the decline of birds, and suggested that this was a result of food shortages, and Krefeld’s enthusiasts offered him their data for the analysis.

Although he admits that the exact cause for the alarming trend was not determined, he expressed his belief that “the cause is anthropogenic”.

[Comment: There you go… anthropegenic — man caused climate change. It may be in a few months that it will be discovered the research was flawed and there is no mass extinction of insects.]

Italy: Whip-Round to Bury Murdered Sex Worker

In Modena

(ANSA) — Modena, June 25 — The northern Italian city of Modena has organised a whip-round to pay for the funeral of a murdered sex worker whose body has been lying unclaimed in the city morgue for a year and a half.

“We hope we get enough,” authorities said.

Hungarian prostitute Arietta Mata, 24, was strangled near Modena in January 2018.

Her family, who live in a remote part of Hungary, have told the consulate they can’t afford to have the body brought back for burial.

Italy: ASPI Concession Revocation Will be ‘Total’ — Toninelli

Company says compensation will have to be paid

(ANSA) — Lecco, July 1 — The revocation of the motorway concessions of Autostrade per l’Italia (ASPI), deemed at fault in the Genoa bridge collapse that killed 43 last August, will be “total”, Transport Minister Danilo Toninelli said Monday.

The revocation is strongly backed by Toninelli’s 5-Star Movement (M5S) while the M5S’s government partner, the League party, is against stripping Autostrade and its parent company, the Benetton controlled Atlantia holding company, of the concessions.

Toninelli said Monday that “the League should not act as lawyer for ASPI”.

ASPI, for its parts, said that if its concession were revoked there would be compensation to pay, by law.

ASPI also said that a transport ministry appointed commission’s report into the case had been diffused to the media “in a piloted and partial” way, before it was communicated to ASPI, allegedly flouting procedural requirements.

ASPI also said that a new video on the collapse of the Morandi Bridge did not clarify its causes.

Italy Won’t Back German-French EU Divvying Up — Salvini

No Italian support for deal for EC to Germans, ECB to French

(ANSA) — Vibo Valentia, July 2 — Italy will not back a German-French backroom deal to divvy up the top EU jobs between themselves, Deputy Premier and Interior Minister Matteo Salvini said as appointments talks went into their second day Tuesday.

“The important thing is that Europe’s future is not decided in talks between Berlin and Paris alone,” he said.

“But this morning too we got up to see divvying up hypotheses: the Commission to the Germans and the central bank to the French.

“There are 28 states in Europe.

“So we don’t understand why the decision must always pass from Berlin to Paris, from Merkel to Macron.

“A pre-arranged backroom solution that excludes all the others and satisfies only the French and the Germans will not have Italian support”.

The talks were forced into a second day after Italy and the Visegrad Group vetoed Dutch Socialist Frans Timmermans as new EC president.

Italy: Big Economic Damage From FCA Move to London — Antitrust

Tax dumping costs Italy $5-8 bn a yr says Rustichelli’s report

(ANSA) — Rome, July 2 — The transfer of Fiat Chrysler Automobiles’ tax HQ to London caused Italy “significant economic damage,” Antitrust authority chief Roberto Rustichelli said in the authority’s annual report Tuesday.

Italy “is one of the most penalised countries” from fiscal competition, the report said.

Tax dumping costs Italy 5-8 billion dollars a year, Rustichelli said.

Fiscal competition caused a “grave disadvantage” for Italian businesses, he said.

In the last year and a half, the annual report said, the authority meted out sanctions totalling some 1.27 billion euros.

For the protection of competition, a total of 29 proceedings were completed, Rustichelli said.

Orban Rejects “Soros’s Man” Timmermans as EC-President

The possible nomination of Frans Timmermans for European Commission president could be rejected solely because he is “George Soros’s man”, but the main reason for the Visegrad countries not to support him is because “he is a fighter of ideologies and he is against anyone who has a different view of the world”, Hungarian Prime Minister Viktor Orban told the V4NA news agency.

Orban referred to developments at the recent European Union summit as “thrillerlike”, and insisted that “some European leaders” including Timmermans, Spitzenkandidat of the European Socialists and Democrats, and Manfred Weber, that of the European People’s Party, have “decided that the EC should be led by an unfaltering supporter of the NGO network of George Soros and of liberal democracy”.

UK Publisher Stops Printing ‘Rothschild Conspiracy’ Book Following Allegations of Anti-Semitism

Hit by allegations of anti-Semitism, a major British publisher has conducted a review of one of its books, which has been severely criticised for containing multiple speculations about one of the world’s most famous Jewish dynasties, the Rothschilds.

Penguin Random House UK, one of the world’s leading publishers, will no longer print “How They Rule the World: The 22 Strategies of Global Power” by Pedro Baños after an external review found that the English translation omitted a chapter in the Spanish-language edition that contains “echoes of Jewish conspiracy theories”.

The major British publisher initially brushed off allegations of anti-Semitism in the book, which was published by its imprint Ebury Press in April.

Things changed after a number of organisations, including the Campaign Against Anti-Semitism, a UK-based NGO, pressed for the book’s withdrawal from sale, which made Penguin commission an external review, led by Baroness Julia Neuberger, a member of the British House of Lords.

The controversy erupted earlier this month when British author Jeremy Duns questioned why passages from the book’s Spanish-language version had not been included in the English edition.

Duns raised concerns about references to the famous the Rothschild banking dynasty, who often appear in the context of conspiracy theories, and their “capacity to intervene in key global decisions” in the original version.

Likewise, he drew attention to the book cover, which features octopus tentacles — the mollusc is widely considered a common element in anti-Semitic imagery.

Dangerous growth of Jihadi Madrasas in WB….from 2004 to 2019.

Sanket Mitra | HENB | New Delhi | July 3, 2019:: The Ministry of Home Affairs (MHA) in its reply today on whether there are reports that madrasas in West Bengal are preaching religious extremism and helping the terrorist organisations revealed that there are some inputs on Bangladeshi terror outfit Jamaat-ul-Mujahideen using some madrasas in the state for “radicalization and recruitment activities”.

As per the ministry’s reply to questions put up by BJP MPs — Khagen Murmu and Sukanta Majumdar of Maldaha Uttar and Balurghat Parliamentary constituencies respectively — several madrasas in Burdwan and Murshidabad are being used for terror-related activities. The MHA, Govt of India further added that relevant inputs in this regard are shared with the state governments in the country.

“There are some inputs of Jamaat-ul-Mujahideen Bangladesh using some Madrasas in Burdwan and Murshidabad for radicalization and recruitment activities,” the MHA also said in a written reply in Lok Sabha.

“Government has notified Jamaat-ul-Mujahideen Bangladesh or Jamaat-ul-Mujahideen India or Jamaat-ul-Mujahideen Hindustan and all its manifestations as a Terrorist Organization on 23.05.2019 in terms of the Unlawful Activities (Prevention) Act, 1967,” the Ministry said.

Earlier today, the Special Task Force of the West Bengal Police arrested a member of the Jamaat-ul-Mujahideen from the same Burdwan district where MHA flagged the radicalisation in madrasas by the banned outfit. According to reports, the accused has been arrested in connection with January 2018 Bodh Gaya blast.

The Jamaat-ul-Mujahideen is a terrorist organisation that has links with Pakistani terror group Lashkar-e-Tayyaba (LeT). The organisation was allegedly involved in 2016 attack in a cafe in Bangladesh’s capital city Dhaka…

Guaido and Maduro had both sent representatives to Oslo in May for discussions that Norway’s government had encouraged, but they were unable to reach any agreement. On Saturday, people familiar with the negotiations told Reuters that talks would restart this week.

But Guaido on Tuesday said there had been “no official statement that we would attend a new round” of dialogue.

German FM Asks Italy to Release Sea Watch Skipper

German govt had said can’t intervene in Italian justice

(ANSA) — Berlin, July 1 — German Foreign Minister Heiko Maas on Monday asked Italy to release Sea-Watch3 captain Carola Rackete who is being held on charges of abetting immigration and ramming a police cutter.

At the end of a rule of law process, he said “from our standpoint there can only be the release of Carola Rackete: I will clarify this yet again to Italy,” he said on Facebook.

Maas reiterated that Germany is “against criminalising the activities of rescue at sea” and said that at a European level “the haggling over the redistribution of migrants is shameful and must end”.

Germany said earlier Monday it cannot intervene in the case despite a plea from Rackete’s father. “We cannot intervene on Italian justice,” government spokeswoman Martina Fiez said.

But she reiterated that Berlin is “against the criminalisation of sea rescuers”.

Fiez said “the charges must be verified, and we are following the situation very attentively.” She said that “the German government is currently working for a European solution”.

Italian foreign ministry sources have said that more than four EU countries are willing to take some of the 40 Sea-Watch migrants, including France, Germany, Luxembourg and Portugal.

Rackete’s father said earlier he hoped the German government would intervene on behalf of his daughter.

Carola Rackete, 30, forced a ban Saturday to land her 40 migrants on the island of Lampedusa saying she was afraid some might commit suicide after being at sea for 17 days following a rescue off Libya.

Rackete now faces a prison term of between three and 10 years for ignoring Interior Minister Matteo Salvini’s closed-ports policy and hitting a Guardia di Finanza ship, which she said she could not avoid and had not rammed deliberately.

Carola’s father Ekkehart Rackete told the DPA news agency that he thought “the international pressure on the Italian government will make the difference” and get his daughter released.

He said Italy was governed by “the rule of law” and he was not worried about Carola, with whom he had spoken by phone on Sunday.

“She is good fun as always and she seemed tranquil to me,” he said.

The captain has become a hero to those opposed to Salvini’s policy and a villain to those who support it.

The Sea-Watch3 is run by the German migrant rescue NGO Sea-Watch and flies a Dutch flag.

Rackete left Lampedusa Sunday for Agrigento where she will be questioned Monday ahead of the ratification of her house-arrest warrant.

This despite evidence that shows some 500,000 migrants —mostly from Central America— will get across the U.S./ Mexico border without being apprehended, including women and children. The United Nations reports that in 2018 the United States took in around 23,000 refugees from all over the world.

Report: AOC Screamed at Border Patrol

Witnesses report it was in ‘threatening manner’

(Washington Examiner) Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, D-N.Y., screamed at federal law enforcement agents “in a threatening manner” during a visit to a Border Patrol facility in El Paso, Texas, and refused to tour the facility, according to two people who witnessed the incident.

“She comes out screaming at our agents, right at the beginning [of the tour] … Crying and screaming and yelling,” said one witness who said he was stunned by the outburst in front of approximately 40 people.

“The agents, they wanted to respond, but they held back because she’s a congressional delegate. But when you have someone yelling at you in a threatening manner … “ the same person said. “They were like, ‘Hey, you need to kinda step back.’“…

The agent on scene said the congresswoman misrepresented why a person in custody had drunk from a toilet.

“So this is what happened with the migrant and drinking water from toilet: she wanted water, didn’t know how to use the faucet in the cell, and drank from the toilet. She never told AOC that we made her drink from the toilet. AOC, of course, changed it … This was when she [the migrant] was apprehended and brought into the facility,” according to the agent.

Ikea Faces Probe in Poland After Sacking Anti-LGBT Worker

A Polish branch of home furniture retailer IKEA is facing a public backlash and an official inquiry, after it fired a worker who refused to support and posted a denunciation of a pro-LGBT corporate event.

A man named in Polish media as Tomasz K., a long-term employee at IKEA’s Krakow store, was recently dismissed after he’d posted a quote from the Bible in response to a notice on the retailer’s intranet that advertised a gay pride event. The verses in question denounced homosexuality. The fired worker then filed a lawsuit accusing the furniture retailer of religious discrimination. His move immediately drew the attention of the predominant and devout Catholic community in Poland.

“I regard the [case] as discrimination and a violation of freedom of conscience and religion,” the country’s vice-minister of justice Marcin Romanovsky wrote in a statement.

On Friday, Poland’s justice minister Zbigniew Ziobro announced he had ordered the country’s prosecutor’s office to probe the case. He described the incident as “unacceptable” and “absolutely scandalous, if confirmed.”

Following the news, the retailer said it had sacked Tomasz K. for insulting the feelings of LGBT people “using quotes from the Old Testament about death and blood in the context of what fate should meet homosexual people.”

However, the former employee, together with the legal group Ordo Iuris, which is representing his interests, deny that his statement contained any threat or insult.

They claim instead that the actions of the retailer were legally unacceptable and that IKEA was attempting to “censor the Holy Bible” by justifying the dismissal of a worker based on a quote from it.

The company planned to release shoes featuring the Betsy Ross American flag with 13 stars in a circle, but nixed the launch because Kaepernick said that this particular version of the flag was flown during a historical period that included slavery.

“Nike has chosen not to release the Air Max 1 Quick Strike Fourth of July as it featured an old version of the American flag,” the company said in a statement.

Public Education in America Has Sunk So Low it is Now Nearly Indistinguishable From Pedophilia Indoctrination

Thanks to the Left’s multi-decade campaign to completely take over the American primary education system, the “pop culture,” the entertainment industry, and the Washington federal bureaucracy, the mainstreaming of what used to very obviously be considered ‘deviant’ behavior is nearly complete.

The Left’s adult infatuation with children — sexually — is a case in point. For some reason, as political commentator Jon Bowne observed recently, “The emancipation of the hardcore lifestyles of sexual deviants has become a political priority in America.”

And, of course, not just for adults. These lifestyles have gained a strong foothold in our education system, as evidenced by course work now being forced upon our children at a very young age.

“An entirely new phase of pedophiles have carved out a social media space where they are fighting for acceptance…while magazines like Teen Vogue offer teenage girls articles legitimizing the sex trade industry,” Bowne notes.

Beginning with a push to legitimize and even promote homosexuality in the classroom, the extreme American Left has moved into the promotion of the so-called “LGTBQ” lifestyle, actually pushing children to ‘self-identify’ as the opposite sex and to push back hard against any attempt by rational adults to fight it.

Leftists in Congress — who have hijacked the Democrat Party — are leading the push. In recent days, for example, Sen. Doug Jones (D-Ala.), noted on the chamber floor that “there is still work to be done with regard to gay rights,” especially LGBT rights, and this, despite the fact that lawmakers have passed, and presidents have signed, civil rights legislation mandating the equal treatment of all Americans successively since the 1960s. So what, at this point, ‘remains to be done?’

Answer: To mainstream deviancy, not simply tolerate it.

Shocking Photos: Kids Lie on Man Dressed as Woman at ‘Drag Queen Story Time’

PORTLAND, Oregon, July 1, 2019 (LifeSiteNews) — A west coast public library “Drag Queen Story Time” has evolved beyond drag queens reading pro-gay and pro-transgender books to kids to permitting children to frolic on the floor and lie on top of a man dressed as a woman.

Photo evidence of children having inappropriate contact with drag queen Carla Rossi at Portland, Oregon’s St. John’s Library last October has been brought to the attention of LifeSiteNews. The photos are posted on the Multnomah County Library’s own Flickr account (Note: photos have been removed after LifeSiteNews published this report. The photos can be found here WARNING: Link leads to images of child abuse).

Source: Twitter Doesn’t Consider Antifa Accounts to be Rule-Violating

Twitter does not currently believe accounts expressing support for the violent extremist “Antifa” movement, including the account linked to last week’s brutal assault on journalist Andy Ngo, are in violation of its terms of service according to a person familiar with the situation.

According to the source, Twitter believes that the “Rose City Antifa” account, the official Twitter presence of the Portland-based mob behind the attack on Ngo, is not currently in violation of the platform’s terms of service. This seems at odds with Twitter’s rules in a section titled “violent extremist groups” which reads, “Groups included in this policy will be those that identify as such or engage in activity — both on and off the platform — that promotes violence.”

Support 10-Year-Olds Suspended for Asking to be Excused From LGBT Lesson

Two UK pre-teens were expelled from school for a week after asking to be exempted from a ‘Pride’ month lesson in their UK public school, Heavers Farm Primary School in Croydon, South London.

When 10-year-old Kaysey, and another student, Farrell, asked if they could be excused from a lesson on LGBT ‘Pride’ month, they were allegedly subjected to accusations of ‘homophobia’ by the teacher.

And then, later, they were suspended from school by the principal of the school, Susan Papas, who allegedly subjected the children to more harassment and haranguing, and 5 hours of detention.

Please read more below about the circumstances leading to Kaysey and Farrell’s dismissal from class and school.

And then, please send a message of support to Kaysey and Farrell, by signing this petition.

The laughable irony is that the school’s website claims that the ‘British Values’ of “individual liberty and mutual respect and tolerance of those with different faiths and beliefs” will be reinforced and respected.

But, this obviously doesn’t apply to those who don’t want to be force-fed with the LGBT agenda, nor to Christians, nor to Muslims, nor to Orthodox Jews, etc…

Since the incident, brave Kaysey has recorded a video to defend her beliefs and actions. In the video, the precocious Kaysey, says:

“Before anybody knew what LGBT meant, everybody knew what gender they were,” explained Kaysey, who, along with her classmate, Farrell, was suspended from the Heavers Farmer Primary School, located in Croydon, South London.

“But now people are confused,” continued the precocious 10-year-old, “and they’re saying that they’re bisexual and trans because they’re confused.”

“It’s really affecting other kids,” explained Kaysey, “because now they’re losing confidence in [them]selves and looking at [them]selves and asking, ‘Why am I this person? Why can’t I be someone else?’“

“Before all this happened, people knew who they were,” said Kaysey. “School children are now facing the choice of what gender they are by the age of four.”

  1. “Insects Are Dying Off in Europe in Apocalyptic Wildlife Omen, New Study Suggests” well what do you expect? This has nothing to do with climate change, but it sure has to do with human activity. Every last patch of grass it well groomed, with no blooming flowers whatever. There’s no rotting wood left anywhere, not in parks and not in forests near urban areas. Old trees with natural cravices or sick ones are cut down immediately. Fallen leaves are collected and burned. Streams and lakes are regularly cleaned of mud. Fields are artificially fertilized instead of dropping dung on them. Even gardens tend to sprayed or otherwise protected from pests. Where exactly are the insects supposed to live? What are they supposed to feed on?
    Go out late in the evening and compare the buzz between a groomed grass patch and a naturally growing one and you’re going to be amazed!
    My city recently started a project where they leave patches ungroomed and I sure hope other people notice the difference too. They also began to leave some rotting wood behind in certain areas, though homeless people have already destroyed some of them as they used it as firewood. Perhaps the current dry years is going to help, because from what I’ve seen many cities leave their grass uncut this summer, as it (oh what a surprise) retains more moisture in that way. In my opinion it also looks far better than grass cut almost to the ground.

  2. “‘Virginity is a Social Construct’: Satanic Miley Cyrus Video Promotes Far-Left Feminism” oh yes, because for a woman’s mental well being it makes no difference whatsoever if she looses her virginity to a violent migrant gang rape or to a loving partner inside a steady relationship. Yep, no difference at all, let’s just turn the world into one big swingers party! I mean we can always abort the potential babies at any given moment, am I right? And those baby boys that will end up being born can just be raised as drag queens because it’s so hot and masculinity is toxic anyway, wouldn’t you agree? Jesus, this is pretty hardcore even for the far left! Though I guess it’s just a first taste of how far they are willing to go.
    (And I sure hope everyone understands I was being sarcastic until the last two sentences.)

  3. Rouen, France

    POLICE STATION attacked “Come out, we’re going to burn you up”

    EXCLUSIVE – Fifteen people launched projectiles, pyrotechnic devices and cobblestones on the police station south of Rouen, on the night of Thursday to Friday, insulting officials who came to defend the scene.

    The scene is impressive. On the night of Thursday to Friday, the Val-de-Reuil-Louviers police station (Eure), south of Rouen, was stormed by a gang of young people. Around two o’clock in the morning, about fifteen hooded individuals attacked the establishment by launching projectiles in number, also firing mortars, according to police reports, consulted by Le Figaro. On the video surveillance images that we were able to consult, we see two guards trying to contain the shooting of the attackers using shields. In shirts, the officials do not seem at all prepared for such an assault. Smoke, “pyrotechnic elements” of all colors and paving stones are thrown at the police.

    During the assault, several of them shouted “Allah Akbar”, others insulting the police

    Individuals seem determined to enter the police station. Their attacks last for about half an hour, both against the officials and the building. They respond with tear gas, before police officers of the Anti-Crime Brigade (BAC) and the Departmental Directorate of Public Security (DDSP) do not reinforce. Around 2:30, calm finally returned. If no agent was injured, some material damage was found: three windows were hit, a damaged vehicle.

    “Come out, we’re going to burn you up”

    A flagrant investigation was opened on the counts of “deliberate damage to public utility property in meetings” and “willful violence against any person holding public authority with weapons by destination”. A complementary police report, consulted by Le Figaro, indicates that several officials heard cries of “Allah Akbar” during the assault. “Strip of French *******”, “Come out we are going to burn you”, chanted the suspects before fleeing, says the same document. On the spot, the remains of 115 projectiles were found, one specifies.

    The attack sparked a wave of anger in the profession. In a statement released Friday, the Alliance union denounced an assault of “incredible violence”. Evoking “police officers at the end, on the verge of rupture”, the union is worried about the “suffering” situation of this police station in Eure, lacking staff and resources. According to a union source, contacted by Le Figaro , the same building was the target of an offensive of the same type in July 2018.

    The town hall denounced Saturday, June 29 “exaggerations”, “rumors” and “fake news” broadcast after this attack. “If a situation seems explosive, it is the social situation” of the police station, said the mayor who speaks of an incident “amplified and used to testify to the great misery of the police of one of the four major cities of the Eure “. The city evokes “a limited incident and, unfortunately, become commonplace when the heat of the summer leads young people to remain in the street,” according to a statement from Mayor PS Marc-Antoine Jamet.

  4. If the Portland cops had been there doing their job in the first place they wouldn’t be needing to ask for the public’s help in finding the attackers. Actually, the real blame belongs on the mayor who reportedly ordered them to stand down. The police union is publicly complaining about it.
