Gates of Vienna News Feed 8/10/2019

Jeffrey Epstein, the notorious proprietor of the “Lolita Express”, was found dead in his cell in a Manhattan jail while awaiting trial on sex trafficking charges. Mr. Epstein reportedly died by suicide. He was on a suicide watch, so evidently the Manhattan correctional authorities did exactly that: they watched him commit suicide.

In other news, another bomb exploded in Copenhagen, this time outside a police station. The building sustained significant damage, but no injuries were reported.

“Don’t Play Games With Me, Kid!” Biden Snaps at Young Conservative Girl at Iowa State Fair — Then Grabs Her Arm! (Video)

2020 Democrat front runner Joe Biden was at the Iowa State Fair on Thursday and apparently he couldn’t handle any questions asked by conservatives.

Biden snapped at a young conservative girl who simply asked him, “How many genders are there?”

“There are at least 3,” Biden told the young Iowa college student named Katie.

Biden then snapped at the young woman for following up with asking, “What are they?” — “Don’t play games with me, kid!” Biden retorted.

But Biden wasn’t finished.

The former Vice President then grabbed Katie’s arm and said, “Oh by the way, the first one to come out for marriage was me.”

Katie said that she was “very mad” that Biden treated her that way.

Banks Give Congress Documents on Possible Trump Dealings With Russians

A group of banks has turned over documents on Russians who may have done business with President Donald Trump following a request from Congress, a Thursday report states.

According to the Wall Street Journal, Bank of America, JPMorgan Chase, Wells Fargo, and Deutsche Bank gave lawmakers thousands of documents as part of a joint investigation by the House Financial Services and Intelligence Committees into possible foreign influence over President Trump and members of his family. The former committee is chaired by none other than impeachment crusaders Rep. Maxine Waters (D-CA). These financial institutions are expected to transfer more documents to congressional investigators in the coming weeks, the Journal said.

Lawmakers issued subpoenas for the information in April.

Ben Rhodes: Trump ‘Absolutely’ a Threat to National Security

Friday on MSNBC’s “Deadline,” former Obama administration Deputy National Security Adviser Ben Rhodes called President Donald Trump a threat to national security.

When asked if Trump was white supremacist, Rhodes said, “Well, I certainly agree. Check the videotape. This is a man who built the program where my old boss wasn’t born in the United States. Would he possibly be saying that if Barack Obama was white? No. In his first speech, he calls Mexicans rapists and on and on. The fact the massive uptick in white supremacy violence is somehow just coincidental that they say the same things the white supremacists say on message boards, you know beggar’s belief here, Nicolle. We have to call a thing what’s they are.”

He continued, “This is a national security crisis I would say, Nicolle. The number one threat to the American people in terms of their personal security is a threat of white supremacist terrorism. That’s not just my view, that’s the view of the director of the FBI.

[Comment: Lie. And lie repeatedly. Lie big. Lie all the time. Eventually people will believe. Classic communist strategy. Notice how he uses the FBI director’s lie as foundation to justify more persecution of patriotic people. That’s how the deep state rolls. Use one lie as “evidence” to push another lie.]

Marc Fernich, an attorney for Jeffrey Epstein, issued a blistering statement on the death of his client by an apparent suicide while in federal custody at the Manhattan Correctional Center in New York City early Saturday morning. Fernich blamed prosecutors, judges, jailers, the media, politicians and “greedy plaintiff’s lawyers” for Epstein’s death, saying they have “blood on their hands.”

Fernich said he was not speaking as a member of Epstein’s defense team, but as an “outraged citizen and defense lawyer”.

Boom! Rudy Giuliani Unloads on Deep State: You Can’t Believe What’s Coming Out!…

These Are Crimes that Are SHOCKING! (VIDEO)

Rudy Giuliani: Sean we’ve known this for a year… You can’t BELIEVE what’s going to come out! And this is dramatic revelation now. But Bruce Ohr should have been prosecuted and his wife for conflicts of interest ten months ago because we had a Justice Department that was completely warped. The fact is that these are crimes that are shocking! These are crimes that go to the very heart of our republic. These people had a plan to stop the Republican candidate from getting elected and then they executed a plan to remove from office on false evidence, false testimony. The whole thing was made up from the very beginning and they sold it to 90% of our media! It’s a tragedy… The dimensions of it you still don’t realize. There’s plenty of evidence of what happened in Ukraine. Plenty of evidence of what happened in UK. In Italy. This was a massive conspiracy!

FBI Continued to Use Steele Dossier to Obtain FISA Warrants Despite State Dept. Official’s Warnings of False Claims by Steele

Fox News is reporting that despite warnings about using the unverified Steele Dossier to obtain FISA warrants that were used to spy on Trump campaign officials, the FBI continued to use the dossier created by the anti-Trump British ex-spy.

Sean Hannity laid it all out last night during an explosive interview on his Fox News Hannity Show.

This is just the beginning…What I have read—is damning and revealing on multiple levels.

Judicial Watch president Tom Fitton made a stunning revelation to Sean Hannity, “Top levels of the State Department under Obama were working with the Clinton campaign operative in this ‘get Trump’ effort. “

Flashback: This is Why Trump Should Not Support “Red Flag” Gun Laws

Man shot and killed by police who were confiscating firearms without due process

A Maryland man was killed after being shot by a police officer during a “Red Flag Law” gun confiscation in November of 2018.

The 61-year-old, Gary J. Willis, was asked by Anne Arundel County police to surrender his firearm after a family member requested the “protective order” following an argument.

Essentially, without any due process, an American was forced to hand his guns over to the state under threat of death by armed “officials.”

While many will argue this tragedy is exactly why these “Red Flag” orders are dangerous, for the citizens and officers, the county Police Chief Timothy Altomare said the shooting was a sign the laws are necessary.

Police said Willis answered the door with a gun in his hand when they came knocking at five in the morning, but set the weapon down and talked with the officers.

After being served with the “Red Flag” order, Willis allegedly became irate and grabbed the gun again.

A struggle for the weapon ensued and a round was discharged from the firearm, striking nobody, but causing one of the officers to draw his gun and fatally shoot Willis.

Family members said Willis wasn’t dangerous, but he was “strongly opinionated.”

Gregg Jarrett on Epstein’s Death: If You Are on Suicide Watch — it’s Hard to Commit Suicide Unless Prison Violated Its Own Protocol (Video)

Gregg Jarrett: Given evidence of an attack most recently against him they’re going to want to conduct an investigation that this was indeed self-inflicted, that this was suicide. But the fact that he was in a solitary cell most recently and on suicide watch I agree with Deroy that it is baffling how somebody on suicide watch who is routinely checked every hour and usually there are cameras, could manage to accomplish a suicide. And not only that, when you’re on suicide watch in a jail cell, under normal protocol they remove absolutely everything in the cell that could be used for hanging. It’s always problematic about bedsheets that they use weaker sheets that wouldn’t sustain the weight of an individual. So I’m not quite sure how he managed to accomplish this unless they violated their own protocol.

Jeffrey Epstein Dead in Apparent Suicide

Certain powerful people likely breathing sigh of relief

Jeffrey Epstein has died after having reportedly committed suicide in his jail cell, according to multiple news reports, after a gurney carriny what is believed to be Epstein was seen wheeled out of the Manhattan Correctional Center around 7:30 a.m., according to the New York Post.

The 66-year-old Epstein was was previously placed on suicide watch after he was found “nearly unconscious” inside his cell with ‘marks on his neck,’ according to a Post report from late July.

Investigators questioned former Orange County police officer Nicholas Tartaglione, suspected of killing four men in a cocaine distribution conspiracy, in connection with the incident. The former cop claimed to have not seen anything nor touched Epstein.

The apparent suicide comes just hours after a massive trove of documents was unsealed in a case linked to Epstein, in which one of his victims said she was forced to perform sex acts with high profile individuals, including former Maine Sen. George Mitchell, former New Mexico Gov. Bill Richardson, money manager Glenn Dubin and MIT professor Marvin Minsky.

Mega Group, Maxwells and Mossad: The Spy Story at the Heart of the Jeffrey Epstein Scandal

The picture painted by the evidence is not a direct Epstein tie to a single intelligence agency but a web linking key members of the Mega Group, politicians, and officials in both the U.S. and Israel, and an organized-crime network with deep business and intelligence ties in both nations.

As billionaire pedophile and alleged sex-trafficker, Jeffrey Epstein sits in prison, reports have continued to surface about his reported links to intelligence, his financial ties to several companies and “charitable” foundations, and his friendships with the rich and powerful as well as top politicians.

While Part I and Part II of this series, “The Jeffrey Epstein Scandal: Too Big to Fail,” have focused on the widespread nature of sexual blackmail operations in recent American history and their ties to the heights of American political power and the U.S. intelligence community, one key aspect of Epstein’s own sex-trafficking and blackmail operation that warrants examination is Epstein’s ties to Israeli intelligence and his ties to the “informal” pro-Israel philanthropist faction known as “the Mega Group.”

The Mega Group’s role in the Epstein case has garnered some attention, as Epstein’s main financial patron for decades, billionaire Leslie Wexner, was a co-founder of the group that unites several well-known businessmen with a penchant for pro-Israel and ethno-philanthropy (i.e., philanthropy benefiting a single ethnic or ethno-religious group). However, as this report will show, another uniting factor among Mega Group members is deep ties to organized crime, specifically the organized crime network discussed in Part I of this series, which was largely led by notorious American mobster Meyer Lansky.

Rosenstein Runs Cover for Clintons and Top Dems After Epstein’s ‘Suicide’ — ‘Pedophiles Facing Federal Criminal Charges Are at a High Risk for Suicide’

Billionaire pedophile Jeffrey Epstein was found dead in his prison cell in Manhattan early Saturday morning from an apparent suicide.

Epstein was reportedly put on suicide watch after he tried to take his own life last month.

According to reports, Epstein committed suicide, however, many close to him fear he was murdered.

Epstein was found dead a day after documents were unsealed implicating several elites and Democrats including Al Gore and former Governor Bill Richardson.

Attorney General Bill Barr said he was appalled to learn of Epstein’s apparent suicide while in federal custody.

The DOJ and FBI are currently investigating Epstein’s death, according to Barr.

Clinton protector and former Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein brushed off Epstein’s suicide as something that was to be expected.

“Pedophiles facing federal criminal charges are at high risk for suicide. It happened in several of my Maryland cases when defendants were released on bail. Detained pedophiles require special attention. Stopping people from harming themselves is difficult,” Rosenstein said in a tweet Saturday afternoon.

Scandal Erupts Over Murder-Porn Movie Where Elite Liberals Hunt Trump Supporters

It took several weekends of mass shootings for Universal Pictures to yank ads for (but not postpone, or cancel) an R-rated ‘murder-porn’movie in which elite liberals hunt Trump supporters for sport.

“Did anyone see what our ratf***er-in-chief just did?” asks one character early in the screenplay for The Hunt — set to open Sept. 27. “At least The Hunt’s coming up. Nothing better than going out to the Manor and slaughtering a dozen deplorables,” is the reply.

The film from producer Jason Blum — a former executive with Bob and Harvey Weinstein’s Miramax — was also behind The Purge, a movie similarly about hunting human beings.

“The same people who want you to give up the right to bear arms are the same people making movies about killing Trump supporters for sport,” tweeted OANN Chief White House Correspondent Emerald Robinson.

Unconstitutional, Tyrannical Red Flag Gun Confiscation Laws Are Coming Fast

Indeed, the truth is that, while no one wants a severely mentally ill person walking around with a gun, mentally ill people still have rights. And if they have not committed a crime, they have the same rights as everyone else.

And thus we arrive at the second frightening aspect of Red Flag laws — the further weaponization of mental health and psychiatry. This is precisely the methods used by the Soviet Union when critics of the government were deemed mentally ill and forced into “treatment” where they remained or where “re-educated/medicated” into conformity.

But abuse of psychiatry and the mental health/law enforcement meld is by no means unique to the Soviet Union. The mechanisms are already in place in the United States and have been for some time. Indeed, every day in the United States countless people are forcibly hospitalized having committed no crime whatsoever.

Watch DARPA Test Out a Swarm of Drones

The Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency (DARPA) is experimenting with using a swarm of autonomous drones and ground robots to assist with military missions. In a video of a recent test, DARPA showed how its robots analyzed two city blocks to find, surround, and secure a mock city building.

DARPA conducted its test back in June in Georgia, featuring both drones and ground-based robots. The demonstration was part of DARPA’s OFFensive Swarm-Enabled Tactics (OFFSET) program, which is designed to eventually accompany small infantry units as they work in dense urban environments, and could eventually scale up to 250 drones and ground robots. The test back in June was the second of six planned tests, which DARPA says will increase in complexity as they happen over the next couple of years.

Armed, Machete-Wielding Gang Robbing Teens in Sweden

A gang of youths armed with a machete, gun, and other weapons carried out a “brutal” robbery of fellow teens in Täby, Sweden, according to local media.

“At least six black-clad young robbers armed with a gun, baton, knives and machete forced a handful of teenagers and three adults to hand over mobiles, money, jewelry and name-brand clothing,” Mitt i reports.

The victims were reportedly forced to strip off any designer clothing.

“What I understand is that they more or less put a gun to their heads,” said a relative of one of the victims.

“They were afraid to come forward. It was quite a traumatic experience to be so violently robbed. The robbers had appeared very, very threatening.”

Despite the crime taking place nearly a week ago, none of perpetrators have been identified or located.

“We are working on the case, but no one is arrested,” said a police spokeswoman. “It is a very serious crime. We have to get hold of them.”

Brexit Party Leader Nigel Farage has struck out over an internal government email that apparently warned the British government may not be able to stop illegal fishing from EU boats after a No Deal Brexit.

In such a case the UK could take back full control of an exclusive area, giving the battered British fishing industry the chance to make a recovery after being decimated by the EU’s Common Fisheries Policy.

But Sky News have seen a document that queries about “a lot of uncertainty” when it comes to whether the government could police the seas as the country has just “12 vessels that need to monitor a space three times the size of the surface area of the UK”.

France Did ‘No Harm’ Deal in 1982 With Palestinian Terrorists Who Killed Jews

Yves Bonnet, who headed the now-defunct DST service in the 1980s, said this in January to a judge investigating the 1982 attack in which six people were murdered and 22 injured at a kosher restaurant on Rosiers Street in Paris, Le Parisien reported Thursday.

Germany: Car of AfD Politician Torched Deliberately in Krefeld

In the early hours of Friday night, the car of an AfD party official was set ablaze in Krefeld, Germany.

In addition to destroying the grey BMW, the flames also damaged another car that was parked nearby.

Witnesses say that they noticed a suspicious man in a hooded sweatshirt, who upon being noticed, ducked behind a car and fled the scene.

The suspect is described as tall and has a broad physique. According to witnesses, he was wearing dark clothes and a hoodie, with hood drawn in the face.

According to reports, the state security police have already started their investigation of the politically motivated crime. Experts have alsoi concluded that the fire was started deliberately.

Some have surmised that the many politically motivated attacks against the national populist AfD party have been fueled by hostile rhetoric coming from the German media.

This isn’t the first time that a car of an AfD politician has been set ablaze by presumably leftist terrorists.

Prime Minister Boris Johnson has written to civil servants telling them to make preparations for a no-deal Brexit “top priority”.

Mr Johnson wrote a letter, published in The Telegraph, to the country’s some-400,000 career bureaucrats telling them:”My approach to Brexit is simple, and I want you to be in no doubt about it.”

“I would very much prefer to leave with a deal — one that must abolish the anti-democratic Irish backstop, which has unacceptable consequences for our country.

“But I recognise this may not happen. That is why preparing urgently and rapidly for the possibility of an exit without a deal will be my top priority, and it will be the top priority for the Civil Service too,” Prime Minister Johnson said.

Morocco: Belgian Volunteer Girls in Shorts Threatened With Beheading by Islamists

A group of Belgian students volunteering for the summer has been targeted by Moroccan Islamists because “they work in shorts”.

An elementary school teacher urged on social media to behead the girls “so that nobody can challenge Islam’s teachings”.

And a Senator with the conservative pro-Islamist Justice and Development party raised the case in parliament: “Is construction work in Europe ever carried out in a bathing suit?”, he said.

The teacher was arrested while the lawmaker formally asked the interior ministry to examine the documentation and ascertain the true nature of the initiative.

The young women, who were working to build a street, are part of a Belgian non-profit organisation called the Bouworde which has been promoting humanitarian projects for over 14 years in the North-African country.

[Comment: These girls are brainwashed woke buffoons. Surely there are lots of volunteer activities they could be doing in Belgium instead.]

With Venezuela in a Free Fall, Its Bishops Call Out the Government

WASHINGTON, D.C. — Bishop Jose Trinidad Fernandez has seen up close the downward spiral of his native Venezuela.

The capital city of Caracas, where he has worked for the last two decades, has in recent years seen tear gas attacks, physical assaults on citizens by government forces, and hungry and malnourished crowds asking for help in streets that once boasted some of the most well-off masses in all of Latin America.

Several members of the bishop’s family studying abroad have chosen not to return because of the uncertainty of securing a job, much less food or medicine in the country that each day approaches financial and political collapse. Even some of his family members who weren’t living abroad have left, he said.

In a late July interview with Vatican Radio, the country’s Cardinal Baltazar Enrique Porras Cardozo called Venezuela, a “failed state.”

Five Migrants Who Gang Raped a 13-Year-Old and Filmed it Convicted by Austrian Court

Five migrants between the ages of 17 and 22 have been convicted by an Austrian court of raping a 13-year-old girl.

The attack happened in October of 2018 after the 13-year-old girl was lured to an apartment by the young men after meeting them at the central railway station in Graz. According to a report by Austria’s Kronen Zeitung, once the girl was inside of the apartment, the five migrants are said to have given her alcohol and other substances before they forced her to undress.

Before this incident, two of the migrant rapists had previously been convicted on drug charges.

As the 13-year-old victim tried to resist the 5 men, the rape is said to have become progressively more violent and aggressive as each one of them took turns raping her.

Italy: Salvini Rages as Richard Gere Demands Migrants Accepted ‘Take Them With You to Hollywood’

ITALIAN deputy Prime Minister Matteo Salvini has delivered a withering put-down to Richard Gere after the movie star urged the Italian government to stop “demonising” migrants — telling him to “take them back to your Hollywood villas”.

The leader of Italy’s far-right Lega party, now preparing for a snap election, was speaking after Gere visited Spanish charity boat the Open Arms ship in a show of support on Friday, before joining a news conference on the Italian island of Lampedusa to call for the 160 migrants stuck on the boat to be allowed to disembark. However, Mr Salvini, who this week pushed through parliament tougher sanctions on charity ships that seek to bring migrants rescued at sea to Italy, rapidly issued a statement in which he said: “Given this generous millionaire is voicing concern for the fate of the Open Arms migrants, we thank him.

“He can take back to Hollywood, on his private plane, all the people aboard and support them in his villas. Thank you Richard!”

Spanish Aid Boat Blocked by Italy Rescues 39 More Migrants

A private rescue ship that has remained at sea with 121 migrants after being denied permission to enter ports in two European countries rescued 39 more people Saturday, a Spanish aid group said, further complicating conditions on and off board.

The Open Arms made its latest rescue in international waters in the central Mediterranean Sea, where it has idled for nine days after picking up two other groups attempting to make the perilous crossing.

Italy and Malta both refused to allow the aid group’s ship into their ports after the Aug. 2 missions. Malta offered to let the ship disembark the 39 new passengers Saturday, but continued to reject the original 121, aid group founder Oscar Camps said.

  1. I am saddened over all of the young lives that were ruined without a thought for their future. Epstein got off light, at least here. What he is facing for an eternity I wouldn’t even want to consider, though what I can imagine is the stuff of nightmares, (no not the horses).

  2. Actually, Madame Hillaryous is resembling the Red Queen more and more with Billy Boy as her Black Knight. Jeffrey Epstein must have been the Mad Hatter in the updated Alice in Wonderland, or was that Alles en Underland? Jah!
