“Why Don’t They Go Back… Help Crime Infested Places From Which They Came” — Trump Trashes America-Hating “Progressive” Democrats

For months Progressive Democrat leaders Ilhan Omar and Rashida Tlaib have been trashing America and Israel on a weekly basis.

Rep. Ilhan Omar is a refugee from Somalia, of all places, and HATES her adopted country.

Rep. Rashida Tlaib is the eldest daughter of Palestinian immigrants in Detroit, Michigan.

Rep. Praila Jayapal is a migrant from India and frequently trashes her adopted country.

On Sunday President Trump slammed “progressive” Democrats immigrants who continue to trash the United States.

Another Record for U.S. Crude Oil Production: 12 Million Barrels Per Day in April!

Two recent reports confirmed the preeminence of the United States in its production of crude oil and its related derivative, natural gas. Earlier this month British Petroleum (BP) released its “Statistical Review of World Energy” for 2019 in which it reported that the United States extended its lead as the world’s top oil producer to a record 15.3 million bpd (barrels per day): 11 million bpd of crude and 4.3 million bpd of natural gas liquids (NGL) in April.

BP added that the United States led all global oil producers by increasing its production by more than two million bpd in 2018, 98 percent of the total new global production.

Antifa Activist Identified as Man Armed With Rifle Who Tried to Set Fire to ICE Center

Yesterday, a man armed with a rifle and Molotov cocktails at the ICE Tacoma Northwest Detention Center in Tacoma, Wash., was killed by responding police officers, according to the authorities.

At around 4 a.m. on Saturday, the Washington State man threw “incendiary devices” at the ICE detention center and nearby cars, setting one on fire.

“The male attempted to ignite a large propane tank and set out buildings on fire,” a statement released by the Tacoma police department said. “The male continued throwing lit objects at the buildings and cars.”

Four officers arrived at the scene and were involved in the shooting. Police initially called out to the man and then shots were fired. It remains unclear who began firing first.

An ICE spokesperson confirmed that no employees were hurt at the shooting, according to The Daily Beast.

The man who attacked the ICE center has now been identified as 69-year-old Willem Van Spronsen of Vashon Island, Washington.

Brownback Wants Religious Freedom Summit to Spark ‘Global Grassroots Movement’

WASHINGTON (RNS) — As he prepared for the State Department’s second summit on global religious liberty next week, Sam Brownback, the U.S. ambassador on religious freedom issues, defended the event against critics who say that the first summit failed to accomplish more than creating new statements about helping religious minorities.

In a telephone briefing with reporters on Friday (July 12), Brownback, the U.S. ambassador-at-large for international religious freedom, cited efforts in Iraq, where a partnership that includes the U.S. Agency for International Development has begun to assist “the redevelopment and repopulating of northern Iraq by Yazidis and Christians that had been run out during ISIS.”

Democratic Governor Blames Trump for Leftist Who Firebombed ICE Facility

The Democratic Governor of Washington State believes there is one person to blame for an incident in which a far-left activist tried to firebomb an ICE facility; President Trump.

Governor Jay Inslee was responding to the attack, during which 69-year-old Willem Van Spronsen, who was armed with a rifle, was shot dead after throwing Molotov cocktails at the building and nearby cars.

Van Spronsen was an Antifa activist and reportedly wrote a manifesto explaining the motives behind the attack.

However, according to presidential candidate Inslee, President Trump is to blame.

Homeless People Reject Developer’s Offer of ‘Free Money’ To Leave Area

In a bizarre stunt Friday, an elf-costumed real estate developer threw money at residents of a homeless camp in California in an effort to entice them to leave.

“Free money! Free money!,” Gene Gorelik shouted from a boom lift as he dropped dollar bills on the encampment, SFGate reported. He was also reportedly offering $2,000 to anyone who agreed to leave.

But none of the residents, who live in cars, RVs and tents, accepted his offer.

Internal Dem Poll: Just 9% of Swing Voters Have Favorable View of Ilhan Omar

A newly released internal poll of Democratic swing voters found that just 9 per cent have a favorable view of Rep. Ilhan Omar while just 22 per cent view Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez favorably.

The poll “included 1,003 likely general-election voters who are white and have two years or less of college education,” reports Axios.

The results validate the concerns of many Democrats that the party is moving too far left and losing moderate voters in the process.

Larry C. Johnson: The Obama Administration Manufactured the Case Against General Flynn

The newest piece of information comes courtesy of Sundance at The Conservative Treehouse in his piece, Flynn Case Highlights Multiple Insurance Policy Motives by DOJ and FBI Operatives. Up to this point, I confess, I bought into the story that Michael Flynn was working on behalf of Turkey and failed to register under the Foreign Agent Registration Act. In short, he was guilty of a FARA violation. But that’s not the real story. Flynn was set up. What do I mean?

There is no evidence that Michael Flynn sought out Government of Turkey representative and asked to go to work for them. That has been the conventional wisdom. But it turns out that Flynn was not working for the Government of Turkey. Flynn’s firm was hired by INOVO in September 2016. Here is what USA Today reported in March of 2017:

As part of its contract with Inovo, the Flynn Intel Group hired researchers to examine Fethullah Gulen, a reclusive Islamic cleric who lives in exile in rural Pennsylvania. Erdogan has blamed Gulen’s opposition group for an attempted 2016 coup and has sought his extradition. On Election Day, The Hill newspaper published a Flynn op-ed that called Gulen “radical cleric” and said the U.S. government should “not provide him a safe haven.”

At least three possibilities exist with respect to the motive for producing this report-1) it was initiated by the Government of Turkey using INOVO as a cut out, or 2) INOVO was asked by someone linked to the Clinton Campaign or the US Government to hire Flynn’s company to do the work, or 3) INOVO did this on its own.

Regardless of the motive, what we now know is that the US Government, courtesy of either an FBI FISA or the NSA, was monitoring communications with Michael Flynn. The FBI Director of the National Security Division, David Laufman, led the charge in pressing Flynn to file a belated FARA. That filing was then used as “evidence” that Flynn lied.

Meet the Madam: Epstein Arrest Casts Spotlight on Clinton-Linked Socialite

Questions swirl around role of Ghislaine Maxwell in Epstein’s trafficking crimes

Following the arrest of pedophile financier Jeffrey Epstein last Saturday, many outlets have turned their attention to his longtime confiante, socialite heiress Ghislaine Maxwell — who has been accused by three women of procuring and training young girls to perform massage and sexual acts on the 66-year-old registered sex offender and his associates.

Maxwell, 57, comes from money. Her father was publisher Robert Maxwell — who himself faced accusations of being a Mossad double (and possibly triple) agent and a “bad character” who was “almost certainly financed by Russia,” according to the British Foreign Office.

Robert Maxwell died in 1991 when he fell from his yacht, the Lady Ghislaine — however the circumstances surrounding his demise have been rife with speculation (including that it was a Mossad assassination — a theory which attorney and longtime Epstein associate Alan Dershowitz slammed in a 2003 op-ed).

It is unknown exactly how Epstein and Ghislaine Maxwell met — however they reportedly dated around 1992, shortly after her father’s death. After breaking up, they remained good friends. In 1995, Epstein renamed a now-defunct Palm Beach company “Ghislaine Corp,” which was dissolved in 1998 per the Wall Street Journal. In 2003, Epstein described Maxwell as his “best friend,” who was not on his payroll — yet “seems to organize much of his life.”

Pushing Back Against Anti-Americanism

For decades, Republicans and Christians have passively allowed leftists to infect our youth with anti-Americanism and instill a culture of glorified debauchery while systemically secularizing our government. All references of America’s Christian founding have been removed from public education. Historian David Barton is pushing back by publishing his Founder’s Bible.

Democrats sought to destroy Bernie Marcus, co-founder of Home Depot, for donating to Trump’s reelection campaign. Unlike most Republicans, Trump pushed back. He boldly defended Marcus and Home Depot with the following tweet:…

Sexual Predators Within America’s Power Elite: What You’re Not Being Told

Politics, religion, sports, government, entertainment, business, armed forces: it doesn’t matter what arena you’re talking about, they are all riddled with the kind of seedy, sleazy, decadent, dodgy, depraved, immoral, corrupt behavior that somehow gets a free pass when it involves the wealthy and powerful elite in America.

In this age of partisan politics and a deeply polarized populace, corruption — especially when it involves sexual debauchery, depravity and predatory behavior — has become the great equalizer.

Take Jeffrey Epstein, the hedge fund billionaire / convicted serial pedophile recently arrested on charges of molesting, raping and sex trafficking dozens of young girls.

It is believed that Epstein operated his own personal sex trafficking ring not only for his personal pleasure but also for the pleasure of his friends and business associates. According to The Washington Post, “several of the young women.say they were offered to the rich and famous as sex partners at Epstein’s parties.” At various times, Epstein ferried his friends about on his private plane, nicknamed the “Lolita Express.”

This is part of America’s seedy underbelly.

As I documented in the in-depth piece I wrote earlier this year, child sex trafficking — the buying and selling of women, young girls and boys for sex, some as young as 9 years old — has become big business in America. It is the fastest growing business in organized crime and the second most-lucrative commodity traded illegally after drugs and guns.

Stunning Video Maps Out All of the 4,000 Exoplanets Discovered by NASA Since the First Distant World Was Spotted in 1992

NASA has released a stunning visualisation of all the exoplanets it has ever spotted, including those from dedicated world-hunting crafts Kepler and TESS.

The first exoplanets — a world not in our own solar system but orbiting another star — was spotted in 1992 going round the pulsar PSR 1257+12.

Since then NASA has found more than 4,000 — crossing the landmark figure last month.

The incredible visualisation of where each exoplanet is in the night sky was made by NASA using data from System Sounds, a science outreach project.

Terrorist Who Firebombed ICE Facility Wrote in Manifesto: “I Am Antifa”

The terrorist who firebombed an ICE facility in Washington State yesterday released a manifesto before the attack stating, “I am Antifa” and said the attack was motivated by his opposition to “concentration camps” in the U.S.

69-year-old Willem Van Spronsen was shot dead by police after he threw Molotov cocktails at the building and nearby cars on Saturday morning.

According to his manifesto, a copy of which was obtained by Jack Posobiec, Van Spronsen was armed with an AR-15 and stated, “I am Antifa”.

The Epstein Scandal: The Elites Tremble

by Davide Malacaria

Billionaire financier Jeffrey Epstein was arrested by Federal prosecutors in New York on charges of sex abuse and trafficking of minors. And the elite trembles. Epstein had already been condemned on similar charges in the past but had got off with a light sentence thanks to a plea deal brokered by former US attorney and current Labor Secretary Alexander Acosta. Acosta is now being highly criticized for the decision and is facing calls to resign.

Besides Acosta, Trump is also being accused of entertaining relations with Epstein whom he praised in a declaration some years ago…

A Question of Trust: Ursula Von Der Leyen Recruits Team to Win Over Brussels

Until recently, Ursula von der Leyen was largely unknown in Brussels. Now the German defense minister needs to win over a majority of the EU Parliament to secure the presidency of the European Commission. She remains an enigma to many, but is hoping some high-profile advisers can help change that.

By Markus Becker, Matthias Gebauer and Peter Müller

Ursula von der Leyen, who is currently being shielded from journalists like a pop star from groupies, is taking a break in front of the International Press Center in Brussel’s European Quarter. She repeatedly throws her arms around. “Now I need a bit of movement,” she says.

It is shortly before midnight on Tuesday, and the aspiring president of the European Commission, the European Union’s executive, is on her way to her hotel after many hours at her desk and phone. It is cold this late in the evening, and the center-right Christian Democrat (CDU) politician is wearing only a pink cardigan. But the cold doesn’t seem to bother her. Von der Leyen is bursting with energy, and gushes about her new job: The young people working for the transition team, the languages, the international surroundings.

After her years at the head of the stiff and scandal-plagued German Defense Ministry in Berlin, von der Leyen seems like she has been liberated. In her steep political ascent, she was often protected by people at the very top, but now she has to fight for herself, and conduct a campaign on her own — or almost alone, given the small, occasionally colorful flock of advisers at her side…

France: Nice Has First Fireworks Show Since 2016 Terror Attack

The first firework display in Nice since the terrorist attack of July 2016 has taken place in celebration of today’s July 14 Fête Nationale.

Almost three years to the day since the deadly attacks on July 14 2016, authorities in Nice organised the first official fireworks display to take place in the city since. The display was launched from a boat in front of the Quai des Etats-Unis (an extension of the famous Promenade des Anglais).

The display took place on July 13, however — not July 14 — in response to requests from associations representing the families of the terrorist attack victims.

Germany: Merkel Honors Hitler Assassins, Laments Rise of Far Right

The chancellor said Germans have a “duty” to stand up to right-wing extremists just as the resistance faced down Adolf Hitler. July 20 is the 75th anniversary of the failed assassination attempt on the Nazi dictator.

German Chancellor Angela Merkel on Saturday urged strong opposition from all sections of German society against the resurgence of right-wing extremism.

In her weekly video address, a week before the 75th anniversary of the assassination attempt on Nazi dictator Adolf Hitler, she paid tribute to those who opposed the Führer’s rule, and took action.

“They followed their conscience and thereby shaped a part of Germany’s history that otherwise would have been solely defined by the darkness of National Socialism,” Merkel said.

The Eurostat data, published on July 10, predicts that the population of the EU as a whole will decline rapidly after peaking at 525 million in 2044, falling to 492.9 million by around 2100.

If correct, it means the Polish population has already peaked at 38 million and will steadily decline to 27.5 million in 2100; losing over a quarter of its population.

Authorities Grill Members of Terrorist Cell Busted in Kuwait

Following the arrest of eight members of a terrorist cell linked to Egypt’s outlawed Muslim Brotherhood in Kuwait on Friday, security sources yesterday said state security investigations with them focused on three basic elements — the visas on which they entered Kuwait and their relationship with the sponsors who issued them; the meetings they had in Kuwait with Kuwaitis or others and whether they were held with good or bad intentions; in addition to the nature of work and activities they practiced in Kuwait. According to sources, some of the suspects — all Egyptians — worked for a charity organization in Kuwait.

The sources added that investigators want to know whether the cell had planned any operations outside Kuwait while they were here. The sources said after confiscating the group’s laptops, mobile phones and documents, state security detectives are currently examining and analyzing them to prepare a complete case file. The sources said the terrorist group had been tracked down after state security received tips from local and foreign sources, including suspects arrested in Egypt, concerning the cell members and the danger they pose due to their military training.

A statement by the interior ministry on Friday carried by the state-run news agency KUNA said the militants were allegedly members of a “terrorist cell”, including some who have been “convicted of terrorism” and sentenced to jail in Egypt. “Those arrested carry Egyptian nationalities and belong to the Muslim Brotherhood organization,” the ministry said.

The suspects, it said, are wanted by Egypt where some of them have been sentenced to up to 15 years in jail. During interrogations, the suspects admitted to carrying out terrorist operations in Egypt. Investigations are ongoing to determine their accomplices, the statement said, warning that it will crack down ruthlessly against saboteurs.

Egyptian authorities have led a crackdown on Muslim Brotherhood members after the military overthrew Islamist president Mohamed Morsi in 2013. Later that year Egypt outlawed the Muslim Brotherhood and declared it a “terrorist organization”. Egypt and its allies, including Gulf powerhouses Saudi Arabia and the United Arab Emirates, consider the Muslim Brotherhood a “terrorist” organization.

Bharat Sevashram Sangha Monk and Devotees Attacked in Jammu-Twai Humsafar Express in Lucknow Station by RPF as Provoked by Two Muslim Women, While Returning From Amarnath Yatra

Hindu Monk and Devotees of Bharat Sevashram Sangha are badly ‘assaulted’ by RPF in Lucknow under provocation of Muslim Women and their husbands in Govt service. No action taken so far.

Upananda Brahmachari | HENB | Haridwar | July 13, 2019:: This is very embarrassing that a Bharat Sevashram Sangha Monk and devotees were attacked, assaulted and humiliated in Jammu-Twai Humsafar Express in Lucknow Station by RPF as provoked by two Muslim women, while returning from Amarnath Yatra. But, there is no time for the Union Railway Minister, Union Home Minister and UP Chief Minister, anyway.

Bharat Sevashram Sangha is a internationally famed philanthropic organization which is mostly renowned for its relief work in any calamity or disaster with various social welfare activities as run by the organisation.

A Hindu monk who is in charge of the Kaliaganj branch of the Bharat Sevashram Sangha in North Dinajpur and nine other devotees returning from the Amarnath yatra, including three women, were allegedly beaten up by a group of Railway Protection Force personnel at Lucknow station on Wednesday past Thursday midnight.

Swami Jyotirmoyananda (popularly known as Utpal Maharaj) and some of the devotees lodged a complaint with the Government Railway Police in Sealdah on Thursday and have also tweeted to Union railway minister Piyush Goyal and Uttar Pradesh chief minister Yogi Adityanath about the incident. But, any reaction, intervention or appropriate steps yet to be reported unfortunately.

“We boarded the Sealdah-bound Humsafar Express from Jammu Tawi on Wednesday morning and all of us had reservations in an AC coach. Two Muslim women named Mehnaj Rahaman and E. Rahaman (in reserved seat no 26 and 28 in no coach no 13) with another two Muslim women requested us to let them sit in our berths. We agreed,” Swami Jyotirmoyananda said.

According to the monk, at about 3 pm, they asked the women to sit in their reserved seats, as some elderly persons with the monk extremely needed some rests.

“Surprisingly, their behaviour changed all on a sudden and they refused to vacate the berths. They also threatened us that we would be taught a lesson when the train reached Lucknow. One of them claimed that her husband was a senior government official in Indian Railway Personnel Services (IRPS). We did not get into any further argument and accommodated ourselves in the remaining berths,” said Swami Jyotirmoyananda…

Democratic Governor Blames Trump for Leftist Who Firebombed ICE Facility

Yes, really

The Democratic Governor of Washington State believes there is one person to blame for an incident in which a far-left activist tried to firebomb an ICE facility; President Trump.

Governor Jay Inslee was responding to the attack, during which 69-year-old Willem Van Spronsen, who was armed with a rifle, was shot dead after throwing Molotov cocktails at the building and nearby cars.

Van Spronsen was an Antifa activist and reportedly wrote a manifesto explaining the motives behind the attack.

However, according to presidential candidate Inslee, President Trump is to blame.

Inslee said Trump was “intentionally trying to create anxiety and fear among undocumented families”.

He also tried to deliberately mislead people about the nature of the attack by claiming it is unknown whether Van Spronsen was targeting detainees or staff, when it was established almost immediately that the incident was an anti-ICE attack.

EU Should Charter Migrant Flights, Says Italian FM

Italy’s foreign minister has called for recent problems posed by mass migration to be solved within a European framework. Italy has borne the brunt of a huge influx of migrants to Europe that erupted in 2015.

Italy’s foreign minister on Sunday unveiled a raft of proposals aimed at restructuring the European Union’s response to a migrant crisis that has strained relations between Italy and its EU neighbors.

Asylum applications should be filed at EU centers located outside the bloc, Enzo Moavero Milanesi told Sunday’s Corriere della Sera newspaper. Those deemed eligible for asylum would be flown on chartered flights into the bloc, bypassing people traffickers and perilous sea journeys, the minister suggested in the interview.

“Those who have the right to asylum must be able to travel in dignified conditions, not in the hands of criminals,” he said.

The boat capsized after setting off for Europe from neighboring Libya. Survivors told the Tunisian coast guard last week that it had been carrying 86 people.

Tunisian fishermen rescued four people but one later died in hospital, the U.N. refugee agency UNHCR said last week.

Illegal Alien Accused of Killing Illinois Father of Two Locked Up on $1m Bail

An illegal alien accused of killing father of two, Corey Cottrell, is now being held on a $1 million bail after pleading not guilty following a deadly hit-and-run in the sanctuary state of Illinois.

Jose Rodriguez, a 27-year-old illegal alien from Honduras, is accused of running a red light on June 22 in Bloomington, Illinois, causing him to hit and kill 39-year-old Corey Cottrell, a father of two daughters, who was riding his motorcycle at the time and was on his way to see his mother, Kathy.

Prosecutors said Rodriguez fled the scene of the crash after hitting Cottrell. The following day, the illegal alien turned himself into law enforcement officials and has since been charged with causing a deadly hit-and-run and driving without a license.

Rep. Ilhan Omar Claims She Probably Loves America More Than Any Natural-Born Americans

During a panel discussion at the Netroots Nation Conference, Rep. Ilhan Omar defended her past anti-American comments by questioning the patriotism of natural-born Americans:

“It is that I am anti-American because I criticize the United States.”

I believe, as an immigrant, I probably love this country more than anyone that is naturally born and because I am ashamed of it continuing to live in its hypocrisy.”

“We export American exceptionalism, the great America, the land of liberty and justice. If you ask anybody walking on the side of the street somewhere in the middle of the world they will tell you, ‘America the great,’ but we don’t live those values here. That hypocrisy is one that I am bothered by. I want America the great to be America the great.” Of course, there was no question asking what she means by “hypocrisy”. Omar just spews rhetoric against her adopted country with political grandstanding that’s sickening.

[Comment: She is in love with the Amerika in her mind, not the constitutional Republic of the United States.]

Reports: ICE Has Begun Raids to Round Up Undocumented Migrants

Immigration authorities have begun conducting raids, a senior administration official said Sunday, in an operation expected to target about 2,000 undocumented migrants ordered by courts to be removed from the country.

The Wall Street Journal also confirmed the development, citing a source.

The raids, which will focus on recent arrivals to the country, are slated for Atlanta, Baltimore, Chicago, Denver, Houston, Los Angeles, Miami, New York and San Francisco, a senior immigration official said. New Orleans is also on the list, but the city tweeted last week that U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement said it would suspend operations through the weekend in areas hit by Tropical Storm Barry.

Syrian Refugees in Lebanon Forced to Demolish Their Own Homes

by Randa Ghazy

“Demolish your home or we’ll do it for you.” This, in a nutshell, is the ultimatum that was given to the Syrian refugees living in camps in the village of Arsal, northeast of Beirut.

Last week, the Lebanese army demolished at least 20 concrete settlements in three Syrian refugee camps in the village, but before the army’s intervention, several refugees had taken the matter in their own hands and had already destroyed their own homes.

The demolitions follow a decision by Lebanon’s Higher Defence Council in April to take down refugee structures made of any material other than plastic and wood. According to the head of the Arsal municipality, Bassel al-Hujeiri, the order applies to 3,500 to 3,600 refugee families in Arsal…

Tucker Carlson Rips Into Ilhan Omar’s Censor Squad as Insincere Race-Baiters

Carlson called Rep. Ilhan Omar a “living fire alarm” of the danger of welcoming immigrants who hate the United States

Fox’s Tucker Carlson Tonight made some waves at the end of Tuesday’s program, when Carlson called Rep. Ilhan Omar a “living fire alarm” of the danger of welcoming immigrants who hate the United States. It was certainly a hot take, and it underlined once again that the liberal elites — the ones who claim to love democracy and free speech — will not tolerate criticism of Omar…

Carlson responded in kind on Wednesday:

CARLSON: Needless to say, the Left went berserk…Ilhan Omar and her allies in Congress immediately demanded that this show be pulled off the air. They didn’t rebut what we said, any of our points or even acknowledge them. They just tried to silence us. That’s how they operate. And of course they called us racist.

On one level that’s amusing given how absurd the charge is. This show more than any other show on television has taken an aggressive position in favor of colorblind equality and against racism, particularly the casual racism of the modern world left.

We despise the current habit of judging people on the basis of their skin color. It’s wrong. We say that virtually every night. Racist? No. We’re against racism, adamantly.

Omar consistently puts her own race at the center of the conversation, but to us, it’s irrelevant. Ayaan Hirsi Ali, for example, would by the standards of identity politics by Omar’s standards seem to have everything in common with Ilhan Omar.

Like Omar she was born in Somalia, moved to Kenya and eventually came to this country. Unlike Omar, Ali loves and cares about the United States. She believes our country is superior to the country she came from and she says that.

For saying that, the left despises her. Omar’s friend Linda Sarsour once tweeted that Ali deserves to be mutilated for her beliefs. So two Somali immigrants, one among the most impressive people in America, the other among the least, it’s not about race.

But of course Omar and her friends already know that. Nothing they say on the subject race is sincere. It’s all a hustle designed to get them what they want.

Omar has made a career of denouncing anyone and anything in her way as racist. That would include virtually all of her political and personal opponents. It includes even inanimate objects like the proposed border wall, that’s racist. So is the United States Congress, so is the entire state of North Dakota, she once tweeted.

Liberal 9th Circuit Rules for Trump’s Effort to Defund Planned Parenthood

The U.S. 9th Circuit Court of Appeals, typically liberal-leaning in its rulings, came down July 11 on the side of President Trump and his ban on federal funds going to “family planning” facilities where abortions are performed.

In its 7-4 decision, the 9th Circuit ruled in favor of allowing the Trump administration’s Title X “Protect Life” rule to stand while a Planned Parenthood lawsuit against it makes its way through the courts.

‘Lion King’ is ‘Fascistic,’ ‘White Supremacist, ‘ Says WashPost

The Lion King, which takes place in Africa with only animal characters, is specifically depicting a white supremacist society

Well, it was bound to happen. One of the woke writers at The Washington Post found something political to nitpick about Disney’s remake of The Lion King. Rather than let everyone enjoy one of childhood’s great classics, Dan Hassler-Forest tried to burst the bubble, pointing out how it’s a “fascistic story” that “incorporates the white supremacist’s worldview.”

Good grief.

Texas Court Orders Father to Raise His Son as a Transsexual

With every passing day it seems more like we are simply in a battle between the forces of good and the forces of evil

A Texas father has been legally prohibited from raising his son as a boy because his ex-wife allegedly decided their son is a transgender girl and is preparing him for “chemical castration at age 8” and a future sex change surgery, which the father may be forced to help pay for.

[Comment: The mother (a doctor) is a woke fool. When her son finally comes to his senses when he grows older he will come to resent his mother for putting him through this insanity…]

U.K. Guardian Melts Down Over Prospect of Canadians Being Allowed to See Pro-Life Film

Left-wing newspapers certainly aren’t the defenders of free expression they used to be. Canada-based journalist Tracey Linderman filed a fear-mongering report for the U.K.’s Guardian newspaper Tuesday, “Activists condemn Canadian cinema chain for screening anti-abortion film: Cineplex Entertainment criticized for screening Unplanned, which is said to promote falsehoods about reproductive health.”

Previously, the movie’s producers said the pro-life film had been effectively “banned” in Canada due to several prominent Canadian distributors, including Cineplex, refusing to pick up the film because of its pro-life content. Cineplex has evidently changed its mind and will now run the film. Now the left-wing U.K. paper is furious at the cinema chain’s audacity to actually screen a movie with a premise liberals find to be suffused with wrongthink (the few liberals that have actually bothered to watch it, anyway, rather than condemning it sight unseen).

It’s bizarre to see a journalist denigrating “freedom of expression laws,” but there it is, in paragraph one:…

5 thoughts on “Gates of Vienna News Feed 7/14/2019

  1. New Syphilis Cases Now Outnumber HIV Across Europe

    Islam, opportunistic immigrants, STDs, all have this in common. They are:

    The gift that keeps on giving.

  2. Texas Court Orders Father to Raise His Son as a Transsexual

    [Comment: The mother (a doctor) is a woke fool. When her son finally comes to his senses when he grows older he will come to resent his mother for putting him through this insanity…]

    Only if the poor child doesn’t first commit suicide. Remorse over gender reassignment drives transsexual death rates at multiple times that of the unaltered population.

    I’ll go waaay out on a limb here and bet the farm that suicide rates, even among many of the most self-destructive homosexuals (e.g., “bug chasers” or HIV-positive needle freaks), nevertheless exhibit nothing remotely close to the same per capita rate of self-inflicted fatalities.

  3. “Poland’s Population to Shrink by More Than 25 Percent Says EU” so what? That’s roughly the same amount Poland had in the 50’s and aside from socialism they weren’t doing that bad. And with modernization they probably won’t even feel the decline, similar to how the Japanese don’t. Plus there’s always the possibility to promote birth rates.

  4. I found a funny article. Divine service and anathema to Mohammed and Allah by the Orthodox Church. Tomos 1180
    I am afraid it cannot even be translated into English.

    “The All-Sovereign and God-Offensive of the Muslim Turkish Faith, and, Muslims of wicked wisdom, a teacher, a false prophet of demons, the son of Satan, Muhammad, an infernal dog, an indomitable wolf, a cruel of Christ, a destroyer of Christians, a headless serpent, a beast of souls and bodies that destroy the soul human and plunges into the abyss of hell…

    Also, the text of the renunciation of Islam and the transition to Orthodox Christianity

     The priest asks:
       – Do you deny Mohammed, whom Muslims worship as God’s Messenger and Prophet, and curse him as a servant of the Devil, not God, and as a false prophet?
       Replies:
       “I renounce Mohammed and curse him as a servant of the Devil and as a false prophet.”
      
       “5. The priest asks:
       – Do you renounce all the blasphemous writings of the accursed Muhammad, which is called the Koran, and all the teachings and regulations, and legends, and his blasphemy, and curse all this as things that are godless and soul-destroying?
       Replies:
       “I renounce the Qur’an and all the writings and teachings of the accursed Muhammad, and I curse all of this as things that are ungodly and erect a lie.”

    ============
    Now Orthodox priests are silent about this – they are afraid.
