Gates of Vienna News Feed 7/23/201

Nigel Farage, the leader of the Brexit Party in the UK, said that he is confident that the new prime minister, Boris Johnson, will deliver Brexit, but not necessarily by October 31. Mr. Farage warned Mr. Johnson that if he treats the Brexit Party as an enemy, he can expect a vigorous fight.

Italy: UniCredit ‘Mulls 10,000 Lay-Offs’ In New Plan

‘It wd lead to a punch-up’ says union boss

(ANSA) — Milan, July 22 — Italy’s biggest bank UniCredit is considering making 10,000 staff redundant in a new strategic plan that will be presented in December, Bloomberg News reported Monday, citing persons close to the situation.

It is also planning a 10% cut in operational costs, the agency said.

The cuts are still being reviewed and may be much lower, it said.

A UniCredit spokesman declined to comment.

Banking trade union FABI General Secretary Lando Sileoni told ANSA “a message to Jean-Pierre Mustier, UniCredit CEO: if these rumours were confirmed this time we’ll have a punch-up and if we need to we’ll use other means”

It’s Over: The Democrats and the Republicans Are Both Conspiring to Bankrupt America and Destroy Our Future

Both major political parties are working together to destroy America’s financial future, and most Americans don’t seem to care. Once upon a time, the Republicans were considered to be “the party of fiscal responsibility”, but now they are just as bad as the “free spending” Democrats. As you will see below, a “compromise” budget deal was just reached which will dramatically increase federal spending and will suspend the federal debt limit until after the next election. In other words, both sides are conspiring to make our debt problem much, much worse over the next year and a half, and this should be causing howls of outrage all across America. But instead most Americans seem content to go along with the free spending ways of our political leaders, and only a handful of voices are sounding the alarm as we steamroll toward financial oblivion.

When Barack Obama was inaugurated on January 20th, 2009, the U.S. national debt was sitting at a grand total of $10,626,877,048,913.08.

[Comment: To whom does the US owe the debt? By chance is large portion owed to the owners of the Federal Reserve? Fed was created explicity to trap the USA into a debt spiral from which there is no escape. ]

Big Tech Hit With Broad U.S. Antitrust Probe as Scrutiny Mounts

The Justice Department said it’s investigating whether dominant technology companies are thwarting competition in their markets, stepping up scrutiny of the industry’s biggest names as they come under fire in Washington.

The department’s antitrust division will look at concerns that consumers, businesses and entrepreneurs have expressed about search, social media, and online retail, according to a statement Tuesday. The statement didn’t name any companies.

“Without the discipline of meaningful market-based competition, digital platforms may act in ways that are not responsive to consumer demands,” said Makan Delrahim, the head of the department’s antitrust division. “The department’s antitrust review will explore these important issues.”

California Launches Creepy “Cradle-to-Career” Data System to Track Everything About Children

Just in case we haven’t provided you with enough creepy dystopian news lately, the nation’s leader in Creepy Dystopia, California, has a brand new program. The “Cradle to Career Data System” will study and document everything about a child born in the state.

What the heck is the “Cradle to Career Data System”?

Beginning at birth and stalking the child until he or she joins the workforce, California wants to keep on eye on all sorts of demographics and variables. They’ll do this by collecting information from “partner entities.” They’ll use this information, according to the Pasadena Star, to “provide appropriate interventions and supports to address disparities in opportunities and improve outcomes for all students.”

Who are these partner entities, you ask?

The “partner entities” include (but are not limited to) “state entities responsible for elementary and secondary education data, entities responsible for early learning data, segments of public higher education, private colleges and universities, state entities responsible for student financial aid, childcare providers, state labor and workforce development agencies, and state departments administering health and human services programs.” (source)

So, your kid’s teachers, principles, professors, babysitters, and the purveyors of any state services you happen to use will all cough up every detail of your child’s life.

Of course, California just wants to help.

This to me has hints of communist countries who pluck the brightest students from their home and educate them to work for the state. However, the admitted goal is data collection for the folks who make the rules.

Comey’s Cyber Spy in White House Stole Classified White House Material — is Now Working for CNN

In March 2019 CNN reported that their cyber expert Anthony Ferrante was used by Buzzfeed as an expert in the lawsuit against them by Aleksej Gubarev. Guberove denied the allegations and Buzzfeed used Ferrante as an expert in their defense.

If corrupt Comey and his spy Ferrante tried to frame the President, it wouldn’t be the first time that the Obama — Comey Deep State gang was accused of attempting to frame President Trump through a cyber crime.

We reported a month ago that the recent firings of top Italian spies were related to Obama and a plot to set up candidate and then President Trump. Obama’s Deep State reportedly tried to frame President Trump by inserting Hillary emails on a related party’s servers.

Courtroom Chaos: Shouting Erupts as Former Judge Dragged Out of Court After Being Sentenced to Jail (Video)

Cincinnati, Ohio — Former Juvenile Court Judge Tracie Hunter went limp and was dragged out of court by a bailiff after being sentenced to jail on Monday.

Chaos erupted in the courtroom and Hunter’s supporters began shouting as the former judge was forcibly taken out of the building.

Hunter was sentenced to 6 months in prison and one year of community service after she used her position as a judge to give her brother, who was also an employee of the juvenile court and about to be fired for allegedly striking a young offender, confidential records.

Tracie Hunter was actually convicted and found guilty in 2014 and was supposed to be sentenced in 2016, but several appeals have delayed her sentencing.

Rudy Giuliani: Epstein Investigation May Implicate Several Prominent Individuals

Former New York City Mayor and Trump Attorney warned on Monday that the renewed investigation into Jeff Epstein may implicate several prominent individuals.

The case against the multi-millionaire could possibly expand to involve several top politicians and Hollywood elites.

Epstein’s former house manager tried to sell his black book of contacts years ago. Gawker got a copy of the book and published the 93 pages of contacts in 2015.

The book contains entries for Alec Baldwin, Ralph Fiennes, Griffin Dunne, New York Post gossip Richard Johnson, Ted Kennedy, David Koch, filmmaker Andrew Jarecki, and all manner of other people you might expect a billionaire to know.

The list also included:

  • Billionaire Leslie Wexner
  • Former New Mexico Governor Bruce King
  • Former New Mexico Governor and Democratic presidential hopeful Bill Richardson
  • Peter Soros, the nephew of George Soros
  • Former Miss Sweden and socialite New York City doctor Eva Andersson Dubin

According to an FBI affidavit, Rodriguez described the address book and the information contained within it as the “Holy Grail” or “Golden Nugget” to unraveling Epstein’s sprawling child-sex network — as reported by Gawker.

Sanders White House Campaign Hit With Federal Labor Complaint

Sen. (I-Vt.) 2020 presidential campaign has been hit with an unfair labor practice complaint alleging illegal employee interrogation and retaliation against staffers.

The July 19 complaint to the National Labor Relations Board, filed by an unnamed individual in Indiana, was posted to the agency’s website late July 22. It comes as tense negotiations between the Sanders campaign and the union representing staffers recently boiled over publicly. The Washington Post reported July 23 that unionized organizers for the campaign had won a pay raise and reached a compromise to reduce the hours of some workers.

A copy of the charge has not yet been made public, but the agency’s July 22 docket lists five potential violations of the National Labor Relations Act. The charge also alleges that the campaign unlawfully discharged an employee, modified a labor contract, and engaged in illegal discipline.

Stupid Politically Correct Decisions From Our Public Schools

There has been a concerted attempt over the past several years by progressive teachers and school administrators to unilaterally make decisions about eradicating vestiges of our culture, because they alone have determined that these symbols or icons of the past may be offensive to others. This disconcerting practice by progressive vanguards has become more prevalent and absurd, the latest example manifested in Colin Kaepernick’s suddenly taking offense at Nike’s use of a Betsy Ross colonial flag emblem on one of its shoe models.

Recently, the San Francisco School Board voted to remove a mural of George Washington at one of its public schools because they divined it racist and degrading for its depiction of black Americans and American Indians.

The rationale offered for the mural’s removal is instructive, as it reveals not only the pernicious nature of the identity politics underpinnings of modern-day progressivism, but also the inevitable censorship practices that logically flow from a philosophy that views America as an irredeemably racist country.

The Democrats Plan to Nationalize Land, Democratic Socialism in Action

A Wall Street Journal editorial of July 10th lays out what the House Democrats’most recent socialist scheme (H.R.3195 — Land and Water Conservation Fund Permanent Funding Act) is all about. In June, the Democrats who sit on the House Natural Resources Committee passed H.R.3195, which is currently winding its way through the House. This bill mandates permanent funding of $900 million to the Land and Water Conservation Fund (LWCF) each year. This would be a whopping two and a half times greater than the Fund’s average annual expenditures over the past 15 years. Just what does the LWCF do? The Fund was created in 1964. It is primarily funded by federal oil and gas drilling royalties. Its main activity has been to gobble up private land (read: nationalize) and put it under government ownership, management, and political control. Among other things, this means that the newly nationalized lands will be poorly managed.

The government’s poor land management practices should come as no surprise. After all, Adam Smith diagnosed the problems associated with government ownership of land in his classic treatise, the Wealth of Nations(1776). Smith concluded that “no two characters seem more inconsistent than those of the trader and the sovereign” since people are more prodigal with the wealth of others than with their own. In that vein, he estimated that lands owned by the state were only about 25% as productive as comparable private holdings. Smith believed Europe’s great tracts of crown lands to be “a mere waste and loss of country in respect both of produce and population.”

As the Wall Street Journal indicated, the Democrats in the House are not the only ones who favor more nationalization, political control, and bureaucratic management of land. For example, two Republicans are on board: Colorado Senator Cory Gardner and Montana Senator Steve Daines.

The Radicalism Behind the ‘Racism’ Charge — Over-Played and Over-Used

Media & Dems Screams Of ‘Racist’ Ring Hollow For All But Their Own Cheerleaders

So with the constant fails in their attacks against “Teflon Don” using their “racist” hammer, why the all-out constant loop of “racist, racist” racist” over the President telling America-haters to love the country or leave it, at this particular time? It reeks of panic and that is because they are panicking.

The WalkAway and Blexit movements are growing, ignored by the media with their ‘pretend it isn’t happening therefore it isn’t happening’ mentality, like a child laying in the middle of the room, covering their face and thinking no one can see them, along with the recent polls showing that race relations are actually improving under Trump, are all eating away at a few percentage points of multiple voter demographics that Democrats seem to think they “own.” The media understands that a Trump re-election is possible, and if the economy keeps growing, could be considered probable.

After four solid years of the media’s overwhelmingly negative coverage of Donald Trump, they failed to prevent his election, they failed to turn the majority of his supporters away, they see support for Trump coming from even some former NeverTrumpers, and that even a small percentage of traditional Democrat voters are being peeled away to support a Trump re-election.

Forget racism fatigue, it appears that a significant amount of Americans are suffering from the “outrage fatigue,” because when everything is treated like an outrage, nothing is outrageous anymore and more and more Americans are just tuning out the constant flow of media propaganda.

The media has become just as radical as the “Jihad Squad,” the America-hating freshmen congresswomen to whom President Trump called out for their own words, comments and radical policies, with the Democrat party leaders now standing staunchly side-by-side with them, making them the face of the Democrat party.

The options for 2020 are now set in stone… Socialism or President Trump for four more years. Choose accordingly.

The Unleashing of a Three Pronged Attack Designed to Destroy America (Part 1)

I have previously reported on an emerging story involving the Chinese Foreign Minister and his speech to the CCP, in which the transcript was leaked. Fenghe’s message focused on colonizing America after committing genocide against Americans with race-specific bioweapons. Wei Fenghe stated that the Chinese were developing these weapons in joint research with the Israeli’s. It turns out, the we have had the same weapons all along an as I was told six years ago, these weapons would one-day be unleashed upon the United States people. Here is a linked summary of the 5 part series where these facts were established:

Part 1— The domestic reasons the Chicoms feel it necessary to send millions of colonists to the United States. Part 2— The planned methodology for the elimination of the American threat by committing genocide against the United States through the use of bioweapons that are genetically based. Part 3— The Chinese are facilitating a Chinese takeover of the planet on behalf of the globalists. Part 4— The Chinese are beta testing the use of bioweapons against the United States through the weaponization of selected immigrants. Interview with Paul Martin. Part 5 of this series dealt with the number one economic reason that Chinese want hundreds of millions of colonists to occupy the United States.

My confidence call on this planned Chinese plot to erase America and its inhabitants can be placed at100%. As I moved beyond the stunning discovery of the Chinese plot, I realized that I had been walked down this road in 2012, I was just a little slow in making the connection. The Chinese plot against America was revealed to me in 2012. No, the Chinese were not specifically mentioned, but the intent and the MO was the same. The Deep State threat was so dramatic, that it caused key personnel inside of agencies like FEMA to bug out and go into hiding in order to protect themselves from being murdered for what they knew.

In the 1990’s, I volunteered to be a Maricopa County “first responder” in the event of a chemical or biological attack. People ask me what motivated me to volunteer? Self-preservation motivated me to become a volunteer as we were promised first access to antidotes to the substances being applied by would-be terrorists.

Eventually, FEMA took over the program. In actuality, from my perspective nothing really materialized except that I attended a few meetings and learned more about disaster planning. In the interim period of the takeover by FEMA, I became friends with a FEMA official and that friendship continued for nearly 20 years. I knew the family, watched his kids grow up and then he hit me with a bombshell in October of 2012 when I had just completed basketball practice at the college I was coaching at as he and his wife were waiting for me outside my office door. We talked until 2AM…

All but a few elements of the plot to take down America have been covered on the CSS. However, in retrospect, we can now see a distinct plot following a prescribed set of steps has been set into motion.

As this series moves forward into subsequent parts, it will become apparent that the takedown of America will follow three distinct phases with several subplots.

First, the United States will be drawn into a war. Despite the fact that Trump is resisting a war with Iran, that will encompass Russia and China, it is clear that for all intents and purposes the war has already started. We are awaiting escalation.

Second, the United States will be hit with chemical, biological and regular terror attacks. The carnage will be horrific. This will weaken America to the point that we will be vulnerable to further action. The most horrific attacks are already being beta-tested. Civil disobedience is escalating. Antifa is training in chemical and biological warfare. We could easily slip into civil conflict in this phase. There is a brewing holocaust at the border that will be covered in Part 2.

Third, when America is sufficiently weakened and our air power has been negated, a Red Dawn style invasion will take place.

The evidence for this three part plot is already in the public arena, it just needs to be organized to tell the story of what is unfolding as I write these words.

[Comment: Should the UAS collapse economically, Demoncrats will seek to ensure Chinese troops on Amercian soil. China will want hard assets for the dollars they hold. Expect Antifa to welcome their fellow comrades…]

Trump Says He Prefers Pakistani Reporters in the Oval Office in Latest Attack on US Media

Donald Trump has taken another swipe at the US media, saying he’s happy to see Pakistani reporters in the Oval Office because he “liked them much better” than the usual American press pool.

Prime Minister Imran Khan’s visit to the White House apparently came with an added bonus for the US president: the presence of non-American journalists in the Oval Office — a break from the routine which Trump apparently very much enjoyed.

After the Pakistani prime minister complained that he faces “unprecedented” criticism from the press, a disbelieving Trump quipped that “there’s no way” Khan was “treated worse” than he is.

Unsettling Animation Reveals the Immense Power of California’s Ridgecrest Earthquake as it Shattered the Desert Floor

Dramatic satellite images show the impact of the magnitude 7.1 quake that struck California earlier this month.

Animated slides show how the quake permanently jolted a huge block of earth northwest, while the other side of the fault moved southeast.

The clear images show part of the 30-mile long scar along the surface of the Mojave Desert.

According to the report, released by the California Geological Survey, the cracks appeared moments after the quake, the biggest to hit the region in two decades.

The images show how land on one side of the fault moved between 3 and 13 feet (91cm— 396cm) from the other side.

Domineering Muslims Want ‘Offensive’ Memorial With Prophet Muhammad’s Name Removed in Norwegian City

Local Muslims in Norway’s third-largest city of Stavanger say that a nameplate honoring Bangladeshi Nobel Peace Prize winner Muhammad Yunus is offensive since the Prophet’s name is being stepped upon.

Angry members of the Muslim Joint Council — an organization which has about 8,000 members — have called for the plate which has been set up to memorialize Nobel Peace Prize winner Muhammad Yunus to be removed from the ground.

The group’s rationale is that the since Yunus shares the name of the Islamic prophet, people walking over the holy man’s name is a sign of abject disrespect.

European Union: A Massive Expansion of Top-Down Powers

Former German Defense Minister Ursula von der Leyen has been narrowly confirmed as the next President of the European Commission, the powerful administrative arm of the European Union.

In a secret ballot in the European Parliament on July 16, von der Leyen, a close ally of German Chancellor Angela Merkel, received 383 votes, only nine more than the 374 required — the lowest margin since the position of President was established in 1958. She will take over from Jean-Claude Junker in November 2019 for a five-year term.

Before the vote, von der Leyen promised an ambitious left-leaning policy program on climate change, taxes, migration and the rule of law. Many of her pledges — which would require transferring yet more national sovereignty to unelected bureaucrats in Brussels — appeared aimed at enticing support for her candidacy from Greens and Socialists in the European Parliament.

Ezra Levant: My Visit With Tommy Robinson in Prison (Quick Update)

Here, Tommy Robinson is being held in isolation as a political prisoner, found guilty of committing journalism.

This is my first report, and it’s a quick update; I’ll have a more detailed video later today.

But for now I can report that Tommy seems to be in good shape, although I have my concerns about how long this will last.

Farage Warns Boris to ‘Clear Out’ Govt Europhiles as UK Participates in EU Navy After Snubbing U.S.

Nigel Farage has warned of the depth of pro-European Union feeling at the top of the Conservative Party, as it was revealed the government had turned down U.S. military assistance with Iran in preference to participation in a European maritime force in the Persian Gulf.

The role, size, and importance of Britain’s Royal Navy has shot to the top of the political agenda after the single Royal Navy first-rate warship patrolling the Persian Gulf and Strait of Hormuz was unable to reach a British-flagged oil tanker transiting the region in time to prevent it being captured by Iranian commandos last week.

Breitbart London reported yesterday on claims that the Theresa May led government had turned down President Trump’s offer to help protect British-flagged shipping in the region because she didn’t want to upset Iran or the European Union.

I Like Boris Johnson Says Salvini

‘More dangerous than League tag’ pleases deputy PM

(ANSA) — Rome, July 23 — Deputy Premier and far-right League leader Matteo Salvini said Tuesday he liked new British Conservative Party leader and incoming Prime Minister Boris Johnson.

Salvini said he appreciated Johnson all the more after ex-prime minister Tony Blair said Johnson would be more dangerous than the nationalist populist League.

“All the best in your job Boris Johnson,” Salvini tweeted.

“The fact that from the left they’re painting him as ‘more dangerous than the League’ makes him all the more likeable to me”.

Italy: Won’t Find Peace Until Bibbiano Kids Go Home — Salvini

And all the rest across Italy unduly taken from families

(ANSA) — Bibbiano, July 23 — Deputy Premier Matteo Salvini said Tuesday he would not “find peace” until all seven of the children taken from their families in a controversial fostering case involving alleged malpractice by social workers return to the family fold.

“I won’t find peace until the last kid in Italy unjustly taken from his family doesn’t go home to mum and dad,” Salvini said at this town near Reggio Emilia where social workers are accused of coercing kids to tell lies about alleged parental abuse in order to get them stripped from their family and entrusted to ‘friendly’ families for profit.

Salvinis said his far-right League party’s proposal for a commission of inquiry into foster homes would be approved by the “first few days in August”.

“We’ll go all the way, not only on the 10,000 children taken from their families in Emilia Romagna, but all over Italy,” he said.

““It’s a disgrace that there are people who have made a business even on the backs of children”.

He added: “I urge anyone who knows of other abuses, anywhere in Italy, to report them to the interior ministry, if they want remaining anonymous, and we will make all the necessary checks”.

Earlier Tuesday it was reported that four of the seven children involved in the Angels and Demons probe into allegedly coerced evidence of untrue parental abuse at Bibbiano had returned to their natural families from foster homes.

The decision by the Bologna minors court was taken some time ago, sources said.

Social workers are alleged to have coached and coerced kids into saying their parents were abusing them so that they could be entrusted to ‘friendly’ families for a profit, according to police.

The case has gained headlines and sparked political rows with the ruling 5-Star Movement (M5S) accusing the centre-left Democratic Party (PD) of involvement in the alleged coercion because the local mayor is PD.

The PD is suing the M5S for the allegations.

There has even been an unsubstantiated allegation that kids were given electric shocks to train them to provide the desired answers by the Turin-based Hansel and Gretel association.

The PD has pointed out the association received some M5S funding.

Salvini, for his part, said at Bibbiano Tuesday that “I will not attack the PD” on the Bibbiano children and the alleged fostering irregularities.

“I don’t come here on a Tuesday afternoon to attack Renzi or Zingaretti on the Bibbiano children, clearly,” he said.

“I’m not interested in the political solour, but saving children”, he added.

M5S leader Luigi Di Maio, the other deputy premier, said on Bibbiano Tuesday “I’m disgusted by the PD’s silence on the Bibbiano case”.

Di Maio has previously called the PD “the party of Bibbiano”, prompting former PD leader Matteo Renzi to say that Di Maio “disgusts me”.

According to a report by Il Giornale, the attack which caused hours of delay happened in Rovezzano, just outside of Florence. Police investigators believe the three separate fires were started with some kind of flammable liquid.

Due to commonalities with another attack on rail infrastructure that happened in 2014 not far from Rovezzano, investigators think that extreme-left anarchists could be responsible for the attack.

Sweden: Warning for Lack of Imams at Prisons — Detainees Might Become Radicalised

The presence of imams in Swedish prisons is important to avoid prisoners from becoming radicalised, Swedish Public Service states. But despite every third detainee being Muslim at some Swedish prisons, imams are still missing in every fifth prison and custody unit. However, imams making duty behind bars must first have been clarified by the Swedish Security Police, Säpo. Some imams do not get access.

According to the Swedish Prison and Probation Service, the number of radicalised prisoners in the country have increased the past years. To prevent radical opinions from spreading inside the prison walls, the authorities are pointing out the importance of religious representatives present to serve the increasing Muslim population at the country’s prisons.

The New Europe of the “Failures”

by Lorenzo Vita

The new Europe has certainly not been born under the best auspices. You can forget about politicians capable of managing a split, forget about European spirit, forget about an understanding of the new wind that blows over the states of the European Union. This new Europe, born of the negotiating table of the European Council, of the Franco-German axis and of the secret machinations of the political parties, is an institution that is already born lame. Moreover, it already symbolizes the decline of an institution that seems completely to have lost perception of how much Europe is changing.

The four latest names brought forward by the European Council and the leaders of the Union only serve to confirm the slow death of Europe. The future president of the European Commission, Ursula von der Leyen, is widely considered to be the worst (or at least the weakest) minister in Angela Merkel’s government. It is true that she is her heir apparent, but this in itself is not necessarily a source of pride. Firstly, the fact that the Commission President is a faithful follower of the leader of one of the member countries condemns her to be a weak leader herself, and absolutely not impartial. Then, considering that Berlin’s armed forces declined to one of the lowest levels in recent history during her leadership of the German Defence Ministry, it is quite clear that Brussels is not entering a time in which it can rest easily. Forget about a strong leader for the post-Juncker period: Europe’s leadership has been given to a woman who has proven to have the right profile, but also a series of skeletons in the closet that represent a handicap of no small importance.

Another name, another problem: Charles Michel, President of the European Council. The outgoing Belgian prime minister, who will inherit the post of the Pole Donald Tusk, can hardly be called a charismatic or strong leader. Indeed, what appears clear is that Michel leaves a country in disarray, widely considered to be the soft underbelly of the European Union. It is riven by the winds of separatism and by ever weaker government, and with a domestic security problem that has run out of control, with attacks repeatedly hitting Belgium, starting with the capital, Brussels. Belgium will now be the country that supplies the President of European Council, one of the fundamental organs of this Union, which brings together all the EU heads of state and government. In short, the premier of a country with a clear identity crisis, close to internal collapse, will represent the EU to the world and will try to define the policies of Brussels. A situation that, if it were not critical for us European citizens, would be comical to say the least.

The High Representative for Foreign Affairs and Security, Josep Borrell, is no better. Although he has an institutional profile of a certain weight, certainly greater than that of the Italian incumbent Federica Mogherini, Borrell is another example of this European Union governed by “failures”. Firstly the Spanish Foreign Minister comes from a non-winning party (the European Socialist Party), but above all comes from a government, that of Pedro Sanchez, which still risks not having a parliamentary majority. So much so that the Spanish Prime Minister, considered the rising star of the European Left with his PSOE party, is taking some time to try to arrive at his investiture on 23rd July with a majority that at least allows him to achieve the passing of the first parliamentary step. If you add to this situation the total inertia of Spain of in recent years, with a flood of elections, non-existent majorities and Catalonia pushing for secession, in reality the representative of EU foreign policy will be a very much weakened man.

Then comes the Italian: David Sassoli leading the European Parliament. The selection of Sassoli should be of great relief to Italy, who comes out of this merry-go-round of appointments having lost the presidency of the European Central Bank and the High Representative, and with the consolation of having maintained the presidency of the European Parliament after the end of the mandate of Antonio Tajani. However, even here, the presidency of the European Parliament has a significant handicap from the start. Sassoli is not a member of the Italian government, he does not represent a majority party, and, most importantly, he is outside the field of thinking that is changing Europe. The Democratic Party claimed victory with his selection, as did the European Socialist Party, but we are talking about a representative of two parties that were defeated at the European elections, both at national and European level. Yet it will indeed be a member of a defeated party to lead in Strasbourg.

Finally, Christine Lagarde, the new head of the European Central Bank. The managing director of the International Monetary Fund is one of the personalities considered most negatively by the parties that rebel against the status quo in Europe and elsewhere. Lagarde herself even made a public apology for how the IMF behaved at the time of the Greek crisis. However, we must not forget that she is French, and a woman linked to former President Nicolas Sarkozy, who destroyed Libya during his time in power, brought scandal upon the Élysée. Lagarde wrote him a letter to say: “Use me for as long as it suits you and suits your plans and casting call,” and then continued, “If you decide to use me, I need you as a guide and a supporter: without a guide I may be ineffective and without your support I may lack credibility.” If this is the new Europe…

Libya Seizes Italian Trawler

The Tramontana seized in Gulf of Sirte, Moavero ‘swift release’

(ANSA) — Rome, July 23 — A Libyan motor launch on Tuesday seized an Italian trawler in the Gulf of Sirte, the Italian foreign ministry said.

It said Foreign Minister Enzo Moavero Milanesi had instructed Italian Ambassador Giuseppe Buccino to “work promptly with the utmost efficacy to ensure the correct treatment and rapid release of the crew members and the vessel (the Tramontana), which has been forced to head for Misrata”.

The ministry added: “the reasons for the seizure are still not clear, likely linked to fishing activities, in waters which are defined as high risk and therefore warned against by the Interministerial Committee for the Safety of Transport and Infrastructure”.

The Tramontana is from Mazara del Vallo and has a crew of seven, sources said.

Will Trump Let the US Army Stand by While 100,000 Christians Are Killed?

U.S. troops and approximately 100,000 Christians are endangered by a pending Turkish attack on northeastern Syria. The situation has prompted a Christian self-defense force to beg the American army for protection.

A partner of the Christian force, the Syriac Military Council, sent a message to Clarion Project asking for help. The SMC’s public statement says:

“We urge the Christians in the U.S. to ask that the U.S. Army that is present in North-East Syria will not allow the Turkish army and jihadists to invade North-East Syria. Will the U.S. Army stand by idly while we are killed?”

Aram Hanna, the commander of the Syriac Military Council, told the Clarion Project that the SMC is 3,000-strong (including its police branch named Sutoro). It also includes a Christian female unit as well as Christians identifying as Syriacs, Assyrians, Chaldeans and Aremenians.

The Christians fought in the campaign against ISIS, including the Battle of Raqqa.

The force expects to be targeted for destruction by the Turkish military and its jihadist proxies, putting the entire Christian population in the area “under direct threat.”

Pakistan: Muslim Employers Accused of Raping, Killing Christian Boy for Demanding Salary

A ten-year-old Christian boy in Pakistan was allegedly raped, tortured, and killed by his Muslim employers at a dangerous scrap metal factory for demanding full pay to help support his mother, brother, and drug-addict father, a media outlet reported over the weekend.

Mehwish Bhatti, the national executive for the British Asian Christian Association (BACA), reportedly declared:

“Badil lived a life of poverty and has been killed simply for working [too] hard and asking for [a] just reward. His tormentors and exploiters knew he was a Christian and used that to treat Badil as they wanted, but his vulnerability in life will be his strength in heaven, as this church-attending young child always retained his love for Christ gaining him entry to heaven. The evil men who beat this young child must be brought to justice so that they cannot deliver their evil actions on any more innocent children. “ […]

Two days before his death, the boy came home later than usual with only half of his wage, infuriating his mother who scolded the child and allegedly urged him to quit his job and focus on his education instead.

The boy’s brother reportedly witnessed the factory’s Muslim employers attack Badil on July 10 but did not intervene out of fear for his safety.

Police Arrest 16 Muslims, Foil Jihad Attacks and Plot to “Establish Islamic Rule in India”

There is a problem with Islam worldwide

Police in India have foiled a plot to “establish Islamic rule” in India. 16 suspects were arrested and taken into custody; they were plotting a jihad attack in the country. They were reported to adhere to the “ideologies of Al Qaeda, Islamic State and Students Islamic Movement of India.”

In a statement by the National Investigation Agency:

Accused persons have been actively recruiting individuals to strike terror in India and have also been routinely posting videos and other jihadi propaganda material exhorting their supporters to conduct terrorist attacks using various methods including the use of explosives, poison, knives and vehicles, as means of attack.

There is a problem with Islam worldwide; “terror” is being struck into the hearts of disbelievers (Qur’an 8:60) — either the terror of jihad violence and attacks or the terror of being afraid to speak truth about the atrocities that are being committed in the name of Islam and being branded “Islamophobic.”

NGO: Fulani Killings of Nigerian Christians Amount to ‘Genocide’

Another American Killed as a Result of a Democrat ‘Sanctuary City’ Policy in California

Santa Clara County officials ignored no fewer than nine U.S. ICE detainer requests for the illegal alien

Immigration enforcement advocates are outraged over the death of yet another American citizen by an illegal alien who was shielded from a longer jail term and deportation by a Democrat-imposed “sanctuary city” policy in California.

Police in San Jose say that Carlos Eduardo Arevalo Carranza, 24, stalked 59-year-old Bambi Larson before breaking into her home and killing her in her bedroom in June. Reports noted that Larson’s body was discovered by her son on Feb. 28, when he checked in on her after she failed to show up for work.

Law enforcement officials have deeply criticized not only California’s sanctuary law before the murder but also pointed to Santa Clara County officials for ignoring no fewer than nine U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement detainer requests for the self-professed gang member.

As for Carranza, he was finally arrested Monday after police investigators tied him to the crime scene using DNA evidence from Larson’s home.

AOC: U.S. Must Have ‘Lifelong Commitment’ To Migrant Children-Healthcare Services for Life

Speaking at a town hall event in Queens, New York, Ocasio-Cortez, who has referred to migrant detention centers as “concentration camps,” reportedly argued that the U.S. government must make a “lifelong commitment” to migrant children because “even if you separate a kid from their parents for two days, you have already created life-long lasting trauma.”

[Comment: Luigi comments: “When asked how mental & health services to illegals will be paid for, OAC insists on nationalizing our private accounts, savings, retirements, 401K, investments & equity in our homes to pay for all of this.

Canada Led the Way for Refugees, But Times Are Changing

by Barry Ellsworth

Canada took in more refugees — 28,100 — than any other country in 2018, according to United Nation statistics. The United States was second with 22,900 and in all, 25 countries resettled 92,000 people. Canada’s refugee numbers fall into line with Prime Minister Justin Trudeau’s oft-repeated mantra that “diversity of our country is actually one of our greatest strengths.”

When US President Donald Trump enacted a ban on people from some Muslim countries in 2017, the Canadian prime minister’s response was swift. “To those fleeing persecution, terror and war, Canadians will welcome you, regardless of your faith,” Trudeau said in a tweet. “Diversity is our strength.” Shortly after his election in 2015, Canada accepted more than 39,000 Syrian refugees.

Trudeau seemed in tune with Canadians — a Forum Research poll in of 1,369 Canadians in December 2015 indicated that 48 percent supported the government’s plan to bring thousands of refugees to Canada in the next few months. Another 44 per cent were opposed. But that was then and this is now.

A massive Canadian Broadcasting Corporation poll of 4,500 people earlier this month found that 57 percent of those asked said that the country should not be accepting more refugees, although 75 percent of respondents were in favour of the government encouraging skilled labourers to immigrate to the country.

In other words, the times have changed and so has public opinion on refugees.

A federal election is set for Oct. 21, and polls conducted by various Canadian organizations place Trudeau’s Liberals trailing behind the Andrew Scheer-led Progressive Conservatives. And just when Trudeau may have thought it couldn’t get any worse, it did.

The poll found Canadians want a change in government and that if the election were held today, the Conservatives would win. Immigration is shaping up as a key issue in the election, and Trudeau’s tweet in 2015 has come back to haunt him. Trump’s anti-immigration utterings and Trudeau’s “welcome” tweet created a surge of thousands of people walking out of the United States and into Canada at irregular crossing points.

Pundits say that media coverage of the illegal crossings has turned Canadians’ opinion against asylum seekers. At first, there was sympathy for those fleeing to Canada, particularly when the crossers did so in the coldest of winter weather and lost toes and fingers to frostbite. Those who crossed in the harshest months at a rural area in the province of Manitoba were at first welcomed, but attitudes have changed.

“There has been a drastic decline in the acceptance and the welcoming, specifically of refugees,” Dorota Blumczynska, executive director of the Immigrant and Refugee Community Organization of Manitoba, said this month. But there was also been a world shift in public opinion against refugees and immigration, not just in Canada.

“Canada is not unique,” said Mireille Paquet, a political science professor at Concordia University. “Canada might have been more protected from some of the trends we see in Europe or in the United States, for example, but recent events show that Canadians also react the same way to this kind of politicalization of immigration.”

And all this comes at a time of unprecedented need.

While the 25 countries took in a total of 92,400 refugees, it pales beside the UN numbers that suggest 1.4 million refugees were in need of resettlement in 2018.

The UN estimates there are 70 million people who have had to flee their homes because of violence and persecution, and 25.9 million are refugees.

Turkey alone is host to 3.7 million refugees.

The problem is only going to get worse, and the question is, how long will host countries take on the responsibility of providing food and shelter as they become inundated with refugees?

If Trudeau loses the election, it could be a bellwether of misery for refugees hoping to come to Canada.

Scheer has already said that on immigration levels, he will be guided on Canada’s best interests.

Chuck Schumer Gives ‘Thumbs Up’ Support to Illegal Immigrants

Senator welcomes his party’s future voters

Democrat leader Sen. Chuck Schumer was caught on camera giving a ‘thumbs up’ to illegal immigrants during a visit to a holding center in McAllen, Texas.

Schumer wants the migrants to be released to Catholic Charities and other non-profit welcoming groups as part of the Democrats’ plan for universal catch and release.

“Many of the migrants at the center welcomed by Sen. Schumer are being trafficked by the cartels, which expect to profit once the migrants repay their smuggling debts with wages from U.S. jobs,” reports Breitbart. “The migrants get the jobs by being released from detention, and then accepting work with longer hours and lower wages than the hours and wages sought by the young Americans whom Schumer is expected to represent and champion.”

ICE Arrest Thwarted by Neighbors Forming ‘Human Chain’ Around Suspect

An apprehension by Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) agents was derailed by residents of a Nashville, Tennessee, neighborhood who formed a human chain around a suspected illegal alien and his son in their driveway after a lengthy standoff.

Metro Police say they were contacted after ICE agents attempted to arrest a man who refused to exit his vehicle, eventually locking himself in a van with his 12-year-old son.

“ICE agents did not have a criminal warrant, instead they came with a civil warrant (or detainer) signed by an administrator, not a judge,” Fox17 News reports. “Because this was a civil matter, ICE agents are not able to enter someone’s home or vehicle and citizens are not committing a crime by interfering.”

New Report Spells Trouble for the Open Borders Policy of 2020 Democrats

Remember when the Democratic candidates for president in 2020 all raised their hands to vouch that they believe illegal entry into America should be decriminalized? Well, that open borders policy is spelling trouble for them.

A shocking new report from a liberal think tank is predicting that Americans will vote for laws and NOT unlawful entry into the US. If the Democrats want to win in 2020, they need to start lying again to the American people and pretend they aren’t for open borders.

The Democratic party has swung so far left that they are pandering to people who aren’t even citizens of this country!

This all comes down to open borders vs. having a sovereign nation. Which will Americans vote for in 2020?

Refugee Kids Praise ISIS.”We Will Stand on the Heads of the Apostates and Crush Them One by One”

Remember when Democrats attacked President Trump and his administration for refusing to allow an ISIS wife that attended the University of Alabama to return to the United States? Shamima Begum, was a teenager when she traveled to Syria to marry an ISIS fighter. Now that our military, under their direction of their Commander in Chief have decimated ISIS, she wanted to come back and pretend that she never joined the most evil group of terrorists roaming the Middle East.Secretary of State Mike Pompeo told her to stay where she is, that she is not even and American citizen and we don’t want her back. The left went nuts.

Fox News is now reporting that even though ISIS has been decimated, the kids and wives of ISIS haven’t given up, and that they’re determined to snuff out “the enemies of god.”

Trump and ICE Issue Reports on Incidents of Local Cops Who Purposely Ignore Detainers for Criminal Aliens

While many jurisdictions across the country cooperate with ICE’s detainers and work closely with the agency to ensure the safety of local communities, in some cases, state or local laws, ordinances, or policies restrict or prohibit cooperation between local law enforcement and ICE. Additionally, some jurisdictions willfully decline to honor ICE detainers and refuse to timely notify ICE of an alien’s release, and may do so even when an alien has a criminal record. Unfortunately, a number of aliens who have been released under these circumstances have gone on to commit additional crimes, including violent felonies. ICE maintains that most of these crimes could have been prevented if ICE had been able to assume custody of these aliens and remove them from the country in accordance with federal immigration laws.

The following is a list of illegal alien cases in which local law enforcement ignored ICE “detainers” and allowed dangerous felons to return to U.S. streets:

Franklin Graham: ‘Equality Act’ Will Lead to Christian Persecution ‘As Never Before’

Evangelical leader Rev. Franklin Graham is speaking out against one of the LGBT lobby’s top congressional priorities, warning that the so-called Equality Act would have “catastrophic consequences” for both religious freedom and women’s rights if it became law.

The Equality Act would amend the 1964 Civil Rights Act to include “sex,” “sexual orientation,” and “gender identity” among expressly recognized “non-discrimination” categories in “public accommodations” (the definition of which would be dramatically expanded); and force employers of 15 or more people to recognize their claimed “gender identity,” forbid them from “discriminating” based on “sexual orientation” or “gender identity,” and mandate transgender “access” to sex-specific facilities.

In May, the Democrat-controlled House of Representatives voted to pass the bill, which Graham warns could become law depending on the outcome of next year’s elections, WND reports.

I Was Banned for Trans Heresy

Free-speech activist Lindsay Shepherd was permanently banned from Twitter earlier this week, following a clash with trans-woman Jessica Yaniv. Responding to Yaniv’s misogynistic comments about her uterus and vagina, Shepherd ‘misgendered’ Yaniv, which led to Shepherd’s permanent suspension.

Yaniv is the central figure in a major controversy in Canada. He is currently suing 16 female beauticians for discrimination after they refused to provide him with waxing services — many were asked to wax his male genitalia. Feminists like Meghan Murphy — also banned from Twitter for misgendering Yaniv — have long argued that this case exposes the dangers of men ‘self-identifying’ as women and demanding access to women’s spaces.

spiked caught up with Shepherd to find out more about her Twitter ban and the balls-waxing controversy.

Library Deletes Photos of Children Fondling Drag Queens During ‘Story Hour’

A public library has deleted photos of small children lying on top of drag queens and fondling their false breasts at a Drag Queen Story Hour.

Multnomah County Library, the library system serving Portland, Oregon, quietly removed from Flickr the photos of the Drag Queen Story Hour that took place at St. John’s Library and then circulated on Facebook, leading to a backlash.

Young children attended the October event that featured drag queen Anthony Hudson, aka “Carla Rossi.”

LifeSiteNews archived the photos of a laughing Hudson lying on the floor, arms outstretched, as young children buried themselves in his body and fondled him.

“Activist Mommy” Elizabeth Johnston observed the photos were first noticed when a Facebook user posted them along with a statement: “I wouldn’t let my kids crawl on top of random strangers no matter how said strangers are dressed.”

The Pedophile Project: Your 7-Year-Old is Next on the Sexual Revolution’s Hit Parade

We cannot dismiss the campaign to legalize pedophilia as fringy stuff that will get nowhere. It’s real and it’s here and it’s gaining strength.

As with any propaganda campaign that pushes outrageous changes on an unwary public, it’s all about timing. Academics might refer to timing as the Overton Window or the Availability Cascade. But we should all be able to understand the process of conditioning the public to accept the unacceptable.

First, the groundwork is laid through carefully planned propaganda. There are various types of messaging for various audiences: the medical establishment, the education establishment, legislators, judges, the general public, and so forth. Then the agitation begins with poster people who are “just like you.” And before you know it, it’s all over.

Unveiling pedophilia as “just fine” will likely be an ambush if we aren’t prepared. It promises to be as swift as the “transgender tipping point” campaign that shrewdly coincided with the Supreme Court’s Obergefell decision in 2015. It will be accompanied by a defiant campaign to paint any resistance as a relic of outdated morality that oppresses the rights of an identity group and the civil rights of any children caught in it.

So, when that inevitable time comes, will we just sit back and cower in confusion? Or will ample voices be able to break through the pressures of political correctness beforehand and shout “Enough!” Be prepared to make that happen, because the pitcher is full and they are mixing the Kool-Aid.

We’ve already being desensitized to the sexualization of children and implanting gender confusion in them. Parents from Long Beach, California to Queens, New York are taking their toddlers to drag queen story times at local libraries. Some, like the mother of nine-year-old Lactatia, now actually groom their boys to be drag queens and encourage them to get other children to do the same.

Media outlets spread the idea. For example, “Good Morning America” recently celebrated an 11-year-old drag queen who danced suggestively on the show and does the same at adult night clubs. The studio audience looked groomed to be a picture of Middle America. They cheered his gyrations on cue, and approvingly.

A majority of American parents are already tacitly okay with sex “education” that pushes early sexual activity on their kids, along with developmentally inappropriate teachings about various sexual practices. They’re also getting on board with having the transgender hoax imposed on their kids, with a bunch of cool moms modeling that behavior. Most parents who are disturbed by all this are overwhelmed and keep their concerns to themselves, which only perpetuates the trend.

Our public schools, with the backing of the highly politicized American Academy of Pediatrics, are also now in the business of nudging any young child to get injections of puberty blockers if he or she claims to be transgender. Some states are now threatening to take away custody from any parent who is not on board with that. K-12 classrooms are becoming labs in which kids are being programmed to serve such agendas.

There are two main avenues to legalizing adult sexual relations with pre-pubescent children: 1) to designate it as a sexual orientation; and 2) to lower-or abolish-the age of consent for sexual activity. Both efforts are on track by pedophilia advocates, especially in academia and in the mass media. Take a look at this TED Talk released last year, in which the speaker chides us: “Let’s be mature about pedophilia.”…

In 2013 the APA “erroneously” referred to pedophilia as a sexual orientation on page 698 of the first printing of the DSM-V. After a public outcry, the APA said it would correct the error in subsequent printings, changing the term “sexual orientation” to “sexual interest.” Their public relations folks also added for good measure that the APA still considers acts of pedophilic disorder to be criminal.

Okay. But ask yourself this: With all of the meticulous attention the APA applies to every controversial aspect of the DSM, and the bated breath the news media holds for any new edition, how exactly does a reference to pedophilia as a “sexual orientation” end up in there by accident?

Sadly, the error smells more like a trial balloon. Both the American Psychiatric Association and the American Psychological Association have long been politicized to promote every outgrowth of the sexual revolution. Groupthink is deeply embedded in both organizations.

Bottom line here: if you track the promotion of pedophilia in academia and the media, all that remains is for the medical establishment to officially proclaim that pedophilia is a sexual orientation. Then anti-discrimination laws kick in to protect it in its entirety, and children are at the mercy of some judge’s interpretation of “penumbras” to determine what constitutes harm.

UK: Muslim TV Station Faces Ban After Broadcasting Anti-Gay & Child Marriage Content

A TV station based on Islamic teaching could have its UK broadcast license revoked after four of its programs breached restrictions on broadcasting hate speech and incitement to crime, according to British regulator Ofcom.

Four programs aired on the Dubai-based Peace TV fell afoul of Ofcom’s broadcasting rules, including a show named Valley of the Homosexuals. The program told viewers that LGBT people are more “corrupted and contaminated” than the pig — which is considered unclean under Islamic law — and describes them as “worse than animals.”

In another program, a Muslim scholar advocated the death penalty for those who practice “magic.” Ofcom also took issue with two other shows, including one that promoted the death penalty as the correct punishment for leaving Islam, and another that said marriage to underage girls is “no problem at all.”
