Gates of Vienna News Feed 8/11/2019

The late Jeffrey Epstein, a friend of Bill Clinton’s and an alleged sex-trafficker, was taken off suicide watch ten days before he committed suicide in his jail cell. Also, a security camera malfunction means that no video recording of his suicide exists.

In other news, according to the latest poll, support for a no-deal Brexit currently leads support for Remain by 17 percentage points.

Is China Hoarding Food, Gold, & Other Commodities in Anticipation of a Global Collapse?

Does China believe that we are on the verge of a major global crisis? The communist Chinese government has always been very big into planning, and it appears that they have decided that now is the time to hoard food, gold and other commodities.

Of course in recent days the fact that China is completely cutting off U.S. agricultural imports has made headlines all over the globe, but at the same time China is dramatically increasing the amount of food that it is importing from the rest of the world. The end result is actually a substantial surge in Chinese imports, and this is starting to show up in the official numbers.

[comment: Thats also why China built all those massive ghost cities in the heart of China. In war, when coastal cities are destroyed China have entire backup cities ready for repopulation.]

This is the Same Pattern the Fed Followed Before the Great Depression

There is immense confusion surrounding July’s Federal Reserve meeting and the rather insane aftermath that has been spurred on in the trade war. The Fed’s latest rate decision of a mere .25 bps cut was seen as “disappointing”, this was then followed by Jerome Powell’s public statements making it clear that this was only a mid-year “adjustment”, and that it was not the beginning of a rate cutting cycle and certainly not the beginning of renewed QE. This shocked the investment world, which was expecting far more accommodation from the Fed after 7 months of built up expectations that the central bank was about to unleash the stimulus punch bowl again.

The question that very few people are asking, though, is why didn’t they? What is stopping them? Everyone from daytraders to the president wants them to do it, yet they continue to keep liquidity conditions tight. In fact, they even dumped another $36 billion in assets from their balance sheet in July. Why?

Keep in mind that the latest Fed decision does two things:

First, it is an indirect admission that the U.S. is entering recession territory.

Second, it is also an admission that the Fed doesn’t plan to do anything about it, at least, not until it’s too late.

In other words, all those people who thought the central bank was about to kick the can on the current crash in economic fundamentals were mistaken. As I have been predicting for many months, the Fed has no intention of trying to delay the effects of negative conditions any longer. The crash is now a reality that the mainstream will have to accept.

In order to understand why the Fed is withholding liquidity at this time instead of opening the floodgates, it is important to understand central banker motives. First and foremost, the assumption that the Fed is always concerned with keeping the financial system afloat is incorrect. The Fed has allowed the U.S. system to crash multiple times in its 106 year history. In truth, the Fed has created bubble after massive bubble through stimulus and low interest rates, and then crashed these bubbles using liquidity tightening policies.

The latest example of this is the most egregious — The Everything Bubble conjured in the past decade is the largest and most destructive bubble ever devised…

I find it hard to believe that the Fed is oblivious to the consequences of these actions. Former Fed chairman Ben Bernanke openly admitted that the Fed caused the Great Depression through interest rate manipulation and asset purchases in an address in honor of Milton Friedman in 2002.

So, if they are aware that the actions they took in the 1920s triggered the Great Depression, why are they following nearly the exact same pattern today?…

As expected, the trade war circus has only escalated and there will be no end to it before the next U.S. election. It has also provided perfect cover for the actions of the Fed, and the current economic downturn is being consistently attributed to trade tension rather than the central bank’s policies.

Essentially what the Fed has done is create an economic time bomb, a sensitive explosive that could be set off by the slightest tremor. Any new geopolitical shock event could trigger this bomb. A No Deal Brexit, a shooting war in Iran, etc. The public will look to these events as the “cause” of the economic crisis, when it was actually the central bank that made it all possible.

7 Reasons to Oppose Red Flag Gun Laws

Here are seven reasons red flag laws should be opposed, particularly at the federal level.

1. There’s No Evidence Red Flag Laws Reduce Gun Violence

Most people haven’t heard of red flag laws until recently—if they have at all—but they aren’t new.

Connecticut enacted the nation’s first red flag law in 1999, followed by Indiana (2005). This means social scientists have had decades to analyze the effectiveness of these laws. And what did they find?

“The evidence,” The New York Times recently reported, “for whether extreme risk protection orders work to prevent gun violence is inconclusive, according to a study by the RAND Corporation on the effectiveness of gun safety measures.”

The Washington Post reports that California’s red flag went basically unused for two years after its passage in 2016. Washington, D.C.’s law has gone entirely unused. Other states, such as Florida and Maryland, have gone the other direction, seizing hundreds of firearms from gun-owners. Yet it’s unclear if these actions stopped a shooting.

With additional states passing red flag laws, researchers will soon have much more data to analyze. But before passing expansive federal legislation that infringes on civil liberties, lawmakers should have clear and compelling empirical evidence that red flag laws actually do what they are intended to do.

2. Congress Lacks the Authority

The Founding Fathers clearly enumerated the powers of the federal government in the Constitution. Among the powers granted in Article I, Section 8 are “the power to coin money, to regulate commerce, to declare war, to raise and maintain armed forces, and to establish a Post Office.”

Regulating firearms is not among the powers listed in the Constitution (though this has not always stopped lawmakers from regulating them). In fact, the document expressly forbids the federal government from doing so, stating in the Second Amendment that “the right of the people to keep and bear Arms, shall not be infringed.”

Ann Coulter: Epstein’s Powerful Sponsors Have Escaped Justice Again

Convicted pedophile Jeffrey Epstein’s powerful friends have escaped justice following his apparent “suicide” on Saturday, Ann Coulter has warned.

The accused child sex trafficker was found in cardiac arrest shortly before 7am on Saturday at the Metropolitan Correctional Center in lower Manhattan. He was rushed to a nearby New York Downtown Hospital where he was pronounced dead.

His death follows an unsuccessful suicide attempt on July 23, where Epstein was found semi-conscious in his jail cell.

“Epstein’s crimes have been fully known by state and local authorities for 13 years, and yet he was never brought to justice. His powerful sponsors have escaped justice again,” Coulter tweeted minutes after the news about his death broke.

“Man of honor, Jeffrey Epstein didn’t kill himself to protect Ghislaine. In fact, he probably didn’t kill himself at all,” she tweeted, alluding to the theory that Jeffrey Epstein was likely murdered in order to stop him from implicating powerful people.

Chillingly, in July Ann Coulter predicted that Epstein would likely be “suicided” by “the people who want him dead” in order to hide their role in his child sex crimes.

Bannon Slams Castro Doxxing Trump Donors: ‘Radicalized’ Democratic Party Now ‘Turning on Private Citizens’

The “radicalized” Democrat Party weaponizing donations of private American citizens in an intimidation campaign is a “very dangerous” escalation that must “be stopped,” according to former White House Chief Strategist Steve Bannon.

“What you’re seeing now is elected officials, Democrats, turning on private citizens who support President Trump,” Bannon told “Sunday Morning Futures” host Maria Bartiromo.

“We’ve never had this in this country. This shows you the stability and order that Donald Trump represents versus the chaos and anarchy of the radical left.”

Beto O’Rourke Calls for Federal Gun Licensing

Sunday on CNN’s “State of the Union,” 2020 Democratic presidential candidate former Rep. Beto O’Rourke (D-TX) called for a federal gun license program.

When asked about federal gun licensing, O’Rourke said, “We should do it. We should have a national licensing program in this country. I also said at the time, it is something that is worth discussing, looking at. I want to learn more. I have. I’ve listened to my fellow Americans, my fellow Texans, my fellow El Pasoans and this will save lives and in conjunction with universal background checks, closing all loopholes, ending the of weapons of war into our communities like the one that was used in El Paso, and red flag laws that stop people who own a firearm before it is too late, before they hurt themselves or someone else. We can end this epidemic of gun violence that will claim more than 40,000 lives this year, happening every single day in almost every single community. So I think it is a proposal that makes sense and one that I would want to implement as president.”

[Comment: Robert Francis O’Rourke proves daily that he is a globalist stooge and puppet seeking to disarm the American people. After all, you can’t impose tyranny at the point of a gun if your potential victims end up shooting back.]

Democrats & Republicans Party in Israel After Jeffrey Epstein Allegedly ‘Commits Suicide’

Some members of Congress have a cause to celebrate

Epstein was allegedly funded by pro-Israel billionaire Les Wexner, who owns Victoria’s Secret.

Epstein’s alleged madam, Ghislaine Maxwell, is the daughter of media mogul Robert Maxwell, who has been dubbed “Israel’s Superspy.”

Maxwell died under mysterious circumstances at age 68 after “going overboard from his yacht” and was buried on the Mount of Olives in Israel with then Prime Minister Yitzhak Shamir and President Chaim Herzog and other elites attending his funeral.

Gordon Thomas and Martin Dillon state in their 2002 book, “Robert Maxwell: Israel’s Superspy,” that evidence shows the Mossad ordered Robert Maxwell’s assassination after he piled up mountains of debt and outlived his usefulness.

Facebook ‘News’: A Bold Step Toward Total Control of Reality?

Facebook’s plan to hook ad-cash-deprived mainstream outlets on licensing payouts seems to be an attempt to hijack narrative control en route to total domination of the infosphere — the ultimate safe space, Zuckerberg-style.

More than two thirds of American adults get their news from social media at the same time that more than half expect that news to be “largely inaccurate.” Perhaps sensing a business opportunity, Facebook has moved in to manage that news consumption, reportedly offering mainstream outlets millions of dollars per year to license their content in order to present it to users authoritatively, as “Facebook News” — having long since ceased trusting users to share news among themselves.

But trusting Facebook to deliver the news is like trusting a cheetah to babysit your gazelles — all that’s left at the end is likely to be a pile of bones. Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg warned legacy media last year that if they did not work with his plan to “revitalize journalism,” they would be left dying “like in a hospice.”

Former MCC Inmate: There’s ‘No Way’ Jeffrey Epstein Killed Himself

There’s no way that man could have killed himself. I’ve done too much time in those units. It’s an impossibility.

Between the floor and the ceiling is like eight or nine feet. There’s no way for you to connect to anything.

You have sheets, but they’re paper level, not strong enough. He was 200 pounds — it would never happen.

When you’re on suicide watch, they put you in this white smock, a straight jacket. They know a person cannot be injurious to themselves.

The clothing they give you is a jump-in uniform. Everything is a dark brown color.

Could he have done it from the bed? No sir. There’s a steel frame, but you can’t move it. There’s no light fixture. There’s no bars.

They don’t give you enough in there that could successfully create an instrument of death. You want to write a letter, they give you rubber pens and maybe once a week a piece of paper.

Nothing hard or made of metal.

And there’s a cop at the door about every nine minutes, whether you’re on suicide watch or not.

There’s up to 80 people there. They could put two in cell. It’s one or two, but I’ll never believe this guy had a cellmate. He was too blown up.

The damage that unit can do to someone.

It’s like you’re an animal and you’ve been brought into a kennel. A guy like Jeffrey, it’s like, “Holy sh-t.”

I told my parents not to come there. God wasn’t in the building.

I’ve had some heavy incidents in the building. What happened is permanent.

Some of the guards are on a major power trip. They know guys there are suffering. They know something the rest of the world hasn’t seen, that a place like this exists in this country, and they get off on it.

If the guards see that the guy is breaking, they’re going to help you break.

But it’s my firm belief that Jeffrey Epstein did not commit suicide. It just didn’t happen.

Former Warden: ‘Shocking’ For Jeffrey Epstein to be Taken Off Suicide Watch

Cameron Lindsay, an ex-warden who worked at three federal prisons, said in an interview with NBC News:

For them to pull him off suicide watch is shocking. For someone this high-profile, with these allegations and this many victims, who has had a suicide attempt in the last few weeks, you can take absolutely no chances. You leave him on suicide watch until he’s out of there. It’s too early to say what I think should happen, but if this did occur as we believe that it did, some staff are going to have some hard questions to answer.

Group Sex App With ‘Worst Security Ever Seen’ Exposes Users in White House & Downing St

A massive vulnerability has been exposed in the group dating app 3fun, with researchers gaining access to a trove of information on its users. In a further twist, users were uncovered in the corridors of power in the US and UK.

The app is described as a “Curious Couples & Singles Dating” platform. One would think that security would rank fairly high on the agenda for such a service; however that was clearly not the case as the Pen Test Partners security researchers, who discovered the vulnerability, described what they felt was “probably the worst security for any dating app we’ve ever seen.”

Personal information, sexual preferences, private photos, chat data and users’ real time locations were all exposed due to 3fun’s shoddy security practices.

Here it Is… Complete List of Clinton Associates Who Allegedly Died Mysteriously or Committed Suicide Before Testimony, Including Jeffrey Epstein

On Saturday multimillionaire Jeffrey Epstein, the highest profile prisoner in US custody, was found dead in his prison cell in Manhattan.

This occurred the day after two thousand previously sealed court documents involving the Jeffrey Epstein child sex abuse case were released to the public.

The documents described how Bill Clinton held a private party on Jeffrey Epstein’s pedophile island.

Clinton made at least 27 times trips on Jeffrey Epstein’s private plane. Most of those flights were with underage girls.

Despite a previous attempt on his life just three weeks ago the prison guards skipped the 30 minute required checks on Epstein’s cell last night.

Early this morning they found him dead.

Jeffrey Epstein is the latest in a long list of Clinton family associates and acquaintances who died mysteriously or committed suicide before their public testimony.

In 2016 CBS Las Vegas posted a list of Bill and Hillary Clinton associates alleged to have died under mysterious circumstances.

Jeffrey Epstein Was Not on Suicide Watch Before Death, Official Says

Jeffrey Epstein was not on suicide watch when he apparently killed himself in the New York jail where he was being held on child sex trafficking charges, a spokesman for the Federal Bureau of Prisons told the New York Post Saturday.

Lee Plourde told the Post that Epstein, 66, was not “currently” on suicide watch, but declined to give further details. The Associated Press reported that Epstein had been taken off suicide watch at the end of July, adding that he had been placed on watch and given daily psychiatric evaluations following an incident in which he was found with bruising on his neck. It remains unclear whether those injuries were the result of an assault or a suicide attempt.

The wealthy financier was found unresponsive in his cell Saturday morning at the Metropolitan Correctional Center in Manhattan, officials said. Epstein was taken to a nearby hospital where he was pronounced dead.

Mass Shooting Events Follow Pattern of “FBI Terror Plots” Documented by the New York Times… Agents Recruit Social Media Extremists to Frame as Scapegoats for Engineered Violence

The FBI is running a massive, coordinated psyop on America. The goal is to demonize all Trump supporters, paint illegals aliens as victims and enraged the mind-controlled Left to the point of a mass armed insurrection led by Antifa terrorists (i.e. civil war). The deep state knows it is about to be exposed by Trump, Durham and William Barr, so it is running every “Hail Mary” operation imaginable to try to control the minds of the masses and depict Trump supporters as enemies of civil society…

Antifa is planning mass violence and terrorism in El Paso on September 1… and the FBI is trying to spark a civil war

Here’s the flyer Antifa has circulated for the Sep. 1 terrorism event they are planning to carry out in El Paso. Is there any doubt the FBI is involved in pushing this terror plot?

Note the extreme violence depicted in this flyer:…

We also know that there were multiple shooters in El Paso, as described by multiple eyewitnesses. This means the official fake news narrative about the El Paso shooting is largely fabricated, even though the violence and the killings were quite real.

Politics and Pedophilia: A Demonic Mix.

The upper echelons of the Israeli political and intelligence structure also feature prominently in Epstein’s circle of associates and friends. Epstein’s mysterious links to unidentified national security interests were heightened after revelations that Acosta, while he was the US Attorney in Miami, was instructed by higher authority “back off” with regard to the Epstein case because Epstein “belonged to intelligence” and that Acosta should just “leave it alone.”

While the use of sexual blackmail by intelligence agencies is as old as intelligence operations themselves, the use of minors in such “honeytrap” cases in generally in the purview of only a few espionage organizations, the major one being Israel’s Mossad. And in reviewing Epstein’s Israeli connections, there is a very good chance that it was Mossad for whom Epstein was gathering political blackmail…

Epstein always had a ready supply of money and a lot of it. He used it to buy two islands in the US Virgin Islands and outfit one with a massive mansion and guest houses. Epstein also had a fleet of jets, including a Boeing 727, nicknamed the “Lolita Express,” a Gulfstream IV, a Gulfstream GV, and a helicopter. Epstein built a huge ranch in New Mexico, complete with an aircraft hangar and runway. He also owned an apartment on Avenue Foch, near L’Arc de Triomphe in the most expensive neighborhood of Paris. Epstein’s seven-story townhouse in Manhattan’s Upper East Side was used to entertain the nobility of politics, entertainment, and even science. While some of Epstein’s wealth was undoubtedly made from handling the portfolios for Wexner and investments for the now-defunct Bear Stearns Wall Street securities firm and the late Saudi business tycoon Adnan Khashoggi, the steady stream of Epstein’s finances, during both bull and bear markets on Wall Street, has puzzled financial experts. Epstein’s use of a series of shell companies to move his money around strongly suggests that some of it originated from Israeli intelligence with other cash flows originating from blackmail payments by those implicated in Epstein’s activities…

“The Miami Herald” and its reporters and editors who uncovered details of the Epstein case have been threatened. So, too have politicians who have pursued Epstein’s political enablers in Florida. Among those threatened has been Florida State Senator Lauren Book. Because of her dogged pursuit of pedophiles in Pennsylvania state government, Commonwealth Attorney General Kathleen Kane was indicted on trumped up charges, forced to resign from office, and sentenced to prison. The Isle of Jersey’s former health minister, Stuart Syvret, was branded by the media a “conspiracy nutter” for his investigation of child sexual abuse at the Haute de Garenne orphanage on the island. In a 2007 interview with a French magazine, French President Nicolas Sarkozy shocked France by saying he was “inclined to think that people are born pedophiles, and that it is also a problem that we do not know how to manage.” There is also the strange matter that the current French president, Emmanuel Macron, began a relationship, while he was 15, with his schoolteacher, who is now his wife and First Lady of France. Even though Epstein was arrested at a New Jersey airport after returning on his private plane from Paris, French authorities have been slow to open an investigation into Epstein’s activities in France.

Prison Worker Claims an Unmarked Van and Unknown Military Personnel Showed Up at the Metropolitan Correctional Center Friday Night Where Accused Sex Trafficker Jeffrey Epstein Was Being Held in and “Switched Him Out” With a Dead Lookalike.

(INTELLIHUB) — Jeffrey Epstein was handcuffed and wheeled into medical at the Metropolitan Correctional Center at around 4:15 p.m. Friday night just before an unmarked van containing unknown military personnel showed up unannounced to “switch him out”, according to an anonymous post timestamped nearly 10 minutes prior to the actual mainstream news release of the accused sex trafficker’s death by “suicide” which hit the press Saturday morning around 8:53 a.m. on Saturday.

Not to mention, based on widely circulated photographs, the nose and left earlobe/hole of the dead guy who was wheeled out of the prison Saturday morning does not match Jeffrey Epstein’s actual nose or left ear. By comparison, the man wheeled out on a stretcher is simply not Epstein.

Prison Warden and Psychologist Signed Off to Confirm Epstein Not Suicidal — Then the MCC Prison Guards Skipped Required Checks

66-year-old financier and convicted pedophile Jeffrey Epstein was found dead in his prison cell on Saturday morning.

Epstein was the highest profile prisoner in the US prison system at the time of his death.

The multi-millionaire financier was hospitalized in July after he was found unresponsive in what appeared to be a possible suicide attempt.

According to reports Epstein told authorities someone tried to kill him in a previous incident weeks earlier.

After the July incident he was reportedly put under suicide watch.

On Saturday he hanged himself.

Epstein was reportedly in good spirits.

There was no indication he would take his life.

And, according to reports, the prison guards did not make required checks on Epstein overnight.

Buried in the Reuters report was the admission that the guards skipped checks on Jeffrey Epstein last night — the most notorious prisoner in the US who was found unconscious less than 3 weeks ago!

Report: ‘Camera Malfunction’ In Epstein’s Prison Cell Prevented Recording of His Alleged Suicide

Does it get any fishier than this?

The reported suicide of Democrat-affiliated sex predator Jeffrey Epstein earlier this morning has journalists and other concerned citizens demanding answers.

But they shouldn’t expect any to arise soon, if ever, as a report from New Right founder Michael Coudrey indicates that a mysterious camera malfunction has prevented any footage of Epstein’s alleged suicide from being captured.

Sasse Tells Barr That DOJ ‘Failed’ And ‘Heads Must Roll’ After Epstein Apparent Suicide

Sen. Ben Sasse of Nebraska sent a furious letter to Attorney General William Barr following the apparent death by suicide of Jeffrey Epstein, telling the nation’s top law enforcement chief that the Justice Department “failed” in its duty to keep the alleged child sex trafficker alive while in prison and so “heads must roll.”

The Bureau of Prisons released a statement on Saturday stating that the jet-setting financier and sex offender was found “unresponsive in his cell” located in the Special Housing Unit at around 6:30 a.m. following “an apparent suicide.” Officials said lifesaving efforts were immediately undertaken and that Epstein was brought to a local hospital where he was pronounced dead. NYC’s Office of Chief Medical Examiner said that they “are investigating the cause of death” and “have an open case.”

‘The Hunt’ Canceled by Universal Following Significant Backlash

“We understand that now is not the right time to release this film.”

Universal Pictures has canceled the September 27 release of the controversial movie “The Hunt,” in the wake of significant backlash over the film that depicts privileged vacationers hunting “deplorables” for sport.

NBC’s Universal Pictures, which shares parent company Comcast with NBC News and MSNBC, told Fox News on Wednesday that the movie’s marketing campaign would be “temporarily paused” on the heels of the tragic mass shootings in El Paso, Texas, Dayton, Ohio, and Gilroy, California.

At that time, it had no plans to shelf the movie itself.

But in a statement released to Fox News on Saturday, a Universal Pictures spokesperson said: “While Universal Pictures had already paused the marketing campaign for The Hunt, after thoughtful consideration, the studio has decided to cancel our plans to release the film.

President Trump added fuel to the conspiracy theories surrounding multimillionaire Jeffrey Epstein’s apparent suicide on Saturday when he retweeted a post that implied former President Bill Clinton was linked to Epstein’s death.

“Died of SUICIDE on 24/7 SUICIDE WATCH ? Yeah right! How does that happen,” the tweet read, alongside a photo of Epstein and one of the Clintons. “#JefferyEpstein had information on Bill Clinton & now he’s dead I see #TrumpBodyCount trending but we know who did this! RT if you’re not Surprised.”

Twitter’s Evil Double Standard

“I was told today that Reza Aslan’s calls to violence were not in violation of Twitters rules. Yet here you are suspended for merely retweeting a video of someone else actually threatening to murder an American citizen. Twitter is a platform that openly condones leftist hate.”

Exactly! For some unknown reason, Twitter bans a video calling for violence against Mitch McConnell, but allows plenty of other tweets supporting violence against Mitch, as well as tweets supporting Islamic Jihad, calls for violence against President Trump and his supporters, etc.

It needs to be pointed out here that Twitter is headed by an out and out Leftist ideologue. Jack Dorsey fully supported the Ferguson protests and also is a huge Black Lives Matter supporter. Twitter under the guidance of Dorsey just makes it up as they go along. There is no such thing as fairness or even a genuine concern for other people’s safety on Twitter’s platform, except as Jack Dorsey sees fit. If you are on Dorsey’s radar as a relevant Leftist hater, an Islamic jihadist, or a true blue Trump hater, you are safe, protected even. If on the other hand you oppose liberalism and Leftist values, then it is perfectly OK to allow threats including death threats against you on Twitter, not to mention doxing. In other words, if you are a conservative and/or God fearing man or woman — it is open season on you on Twitter.

The poll, carried out days ago, asked voters: “If Boris Johnson is unable to make changes to the Withdrawal Agreement that enables it to pass the House of Commons before October 31st, which of the following should he do?”

46% want to see a No Deal Brexit delivered at the end of October, whilst only 29% would want to see the UK’s EU exit cancelled. That’s a 17-point lead for a WTO Brexit compared to overturning the referendum result.

The Muslim Brotherhood, Mother of Islamist Terror Groups

When the average American hears the term “radical Islamists” or thinks “terrorism,” the first notion that comes to mind is groups like Al Qaeda, ISIS, Taliban, or Hamas.

In reality, the world’s wholesale terror producer is none of the above, is headquartered in Jordan, works hand-in-hand with the monarchy there, and has evil tentacles that stretch across the globe wherever democracy and free choice thrive. Named the Muslim Brotherhood (MB), they are the quintessential terrorist organization, and are evil by sheer definition — they, strike fear into the hearts of man.

Unknown to many Americans, the MB was established over 80 years ago in Egypt, and is clearly the largest, most organized, wide-spread and best-financed radical Muslim group in the world today.

The MB is so large and important to the history of the region that they boast a very specialized group of graduates: Osama Bin Laden, Ayman Zawahiri, and ISIS caliph Abu Baker Baghdadi — to name a few.

In fact, many forget that Hamas was originally founded as the “Palestine Chapter of Jordan’s Muslim Brotherhood”. This was confirmed by Osama Abu Irshaid, a Jordanian, PhD in his dissertation at a renowned British university.

The evil spawned by the MB has spread throughout the Middle East, and since its inception, has proudly carried out hundreds of terror attacks against Israeli civilians. The MB has also been a strong participant in the creation of at least 2 wars between Israel and Gaza along with dozens of skirmishes, and their Hamas branch was responsible for carrying out a bloody coup in 2006 when it took Gaza by force and butchered Palestinian civilians.

Jihadi Ploy to Create Hindu-Phobia Will Annihilate Pakistan Ultimately

Huge Hindu-phobia rocks Pakistan spreading lies in Jihadi liabilities. That may be dangerous for the residual Hindu-Sikh minorities in Pakistan. But, it indicates the annihilation of Pakistan too.

Upananda Brahmachari | HENB | Haridwar | Aug 11, 2019:: The bankrupt and globally cornered Pakistan is now using its only lifeline of Hindu-phobia to win the game of Kashmir.

The abrogation of Art 370 and 35 A from Indian Constitution and controlling the Jihadi situation in the Kashmir valley by Indian military has cast a traumatic spell over the epicenter of Jihad, named Pakistan.

Though the Political parties, Media houses and the Islamist forces in Pakistan are jointly trying an upheaval in the country to make another genocide in the country to finish the rest of minority Hindus and Sikhs in the arised situation; it is quiet difficult to do that as the global forum like UN and the major powers like US, UK, Russia, China and France finally welcomed the decision of India for the removal of Art 370 and watching the ill developments there in Pakistan.

By this time Pakistan reached in the conclusion to end all bilateral relations with India. India reciprocated all those as a composed counterpart.

From the very day of Aug 5, when in Rajya Sabha (upper house of Indian Parliament), Indian Home Minister Amit Shah declared the removal of Art 370 and tabled the proposal of bifurcating the State of Jammu and Kashmir as two union territories viz J&K UT and Ladhak UT; the Pakistan PM Imran Khan, his party leaders, Jihadi leaders like Masood Azhar and Hafiz Saeed and obviously the Pakistani media started an anti-India campaign and provocative Hindu-phobia, only to exist anyway in a volatile situation embarked in Pakistan due to a possible end of subversive Jihad in the Kashmir valley.

Leave the statement of Jihad leaders and anti-Indian political parties in Pakistan; the so-called secular media in Pak like Dawn, Tribune and others started hatred campaign against BJP -the ruling party and RSS -the right wing Hindu organisation in India with crude lies and concocted facts…

Maharaja Ranjit Singh’s Statue Vandalized by Two Jihadi Youths in Pakistan

Statue of Sher-e-Punjab Maharaja Ranjit Singh Vandalized in Lahore by Two Fanatic Muslim Youths of Tehreek-Labbaik Pakistan.

Ravikiran Singh | HENB | Chandigarh | Aug 11, 2019:: In an very unfortunate situation, on August 10, two fanatic Muslim youths belonging to Tehreek-Labbaik Pakistan of Maulana Khaim Rizvi reportedly vandalized the recently installed statue of Sikh ruler Sher-e-Punjab Maharaja Ranjit Singh outside the Sikh gallery in Lahore fort. Notably, this life size (9-feet) statue of Maharaja Ranjit Singh was unveiled at the Lahore Fort on June 27 this year. The statue was gifted to the people of Punjab from the UK-based S.K. Foundation.

Taking an immediate action against the Jihadi culprits namely Adnan Mughal and Asad, the Police is learnt to have arrested duo of them by after registering an FIR under charges of blasphemy. Wielding clubs and bricks, the Muslim culprits entered Mai Jinda’s Haveli where the statue was installed and damaged a part of it.

It is learnt that the duo youths were upset over revocation of the special status of J&K with scrapping of Article 370 by the BJP led saffron Indian government.

Shocked over the move, the Walled City of Lahore Authority has said that this is an unfortunate incident. “We will enhance security at the Lahore Fort so that no such incident should take place in the future,” said Tania Qureshi, the spokesperson of Walled City of Lahore Authority while vowing to repair the statue soon after Eid.

But, the pet dogs of Pakistan like Babbar Khalsa and Khalistani Tiger Force are not protesting against the desecration of Maharaja Ranjit Singh’s statue in Lahore fort. These separatist pro-Khalistani groups who generally take the help of Pakistan to disintegrate India did not show any concern for the desecration of Majaraja Ranjit Singh’s statue in Lahore Fort.

Eminent Hindu interlocutor and Hindu Existence Web Editor, Upananda Brahmachari vehemently condemned the vandalism on Maharaja Ranjit Singh statue in Lahore Fort and tweeted+, “A wave of Hinduphobia is perpetuating in Pakistan. It is not due to Kashmir tension or removal of Art 370. Pak has generic enmity c’ India. So, it’s a new scope to run d last lap of ethnic cleansing of Hindus and Sikh in Pak. Attack on Maharaj Ranjit Singh’s statue is symbolical.”

“Purification and Regimentation of Sikhs are deep rooted in Hinduism and never in Islam. The Guru Parampara and historic struggle in Sikh tradition to protect Dharma and Rashtra legacy put most of the Gurus under the perpetual persecution and brutal killings of them one by one by Mughal rulers. Sikhs Gurus and warriors have the history to fight against fanatic Islam. But, these dogs of Pakistan like Babbar Khalsa and Khalistani Tiger Force are making friendship with anti-Sikh, anti-Hindu Pakistani people. Consequently, fanatic Muslims are attacking Sikh and Hindu people in Pakistan. The Jihadi elements in Pak are desecrating the Maharaja Ranjit Singh’s statue in Lahore. These must be stopped anyway, Minority Hindus, Sikhs, Christians and Ahamedians in Pakistan always under dangerous Jihadi threat. The minority people in Pakistan must be protected by India and International Rights lobbies,” Brahmachari told HENB.

China ‘Can’t Just Stay Out’ of Kashmir Dispute, Will Play Peacemaker

With Pakistan’s foreign minister in Beijing to discuss the Kashmir crisis, and his Indian counterpart following on Sunday, China looks set to involve itself in the high-stakes standoff between its two nuclear neighbors.

The Kashmir dispute is one that has remained impervious to foreign mediation for decades. US President Donald Trump’s casual offer to step in last month was dismissed, and Pakistani Prime Minister Imran Khan’s efforts to get Gulf states on his country’s side fell on deaf ears, with Saudi Arabia and the United Arab Emirates all considering the issue an internal matter, well aware of the can of worms they could open up by involving themselves.

Beijing, however, doesn’t have that luxury, China strategist Andrew Leung told RT. “Staying out of this dispute will see the powder keg being ignited,” he said. “China cannot just stay out with folded arms.”

Advice to the College-Bound From the Old, White Professor

In a few weeks, some of you will be going off to college. But before you commit yourself to the decision and the ensuing financial burden, there are a few things you should know.

Nearly all college experiences begin with a series of orientation sessions. Most start with the assumption that you are the cursed offspring of a flawed society. You come to college not to be educated but to be reeducated. You have imbibed of racism, sexism, and homophobia. And for some outrageous amount of tuition that will send many of you into perpetual debt, the modern-day Gletkins of academia will purge you of these impure thoughts.

The brainwashing will begin in orientation but will not end there. If you live in a dormitory, there will be required sensitivity sessions run by minions from the office of residence life. These generally are graduate students who are shouldering the intellectual rigors of a degree in education administration.

The aim of these sessions, which are reminiscent of those imposed on Soviet factory workers to remove their “mechanistic thinking,” is to reeducate you to rid yourself of the values your parents taught you.

Many of you, irrespective of discipline, will be compelled to complete a multicultural requirement. These courses are compulsory because otherwise no rational person would sit through them.

Your multicultural requirement might be taken in African-American studies where, being a white person, you will learn that only whites, by definition, can be racists and all whites are racists.

Apostasy is Destroying the Church, Part 1

Today’s pastors, for the most part, give milk toast sermons that won’t even get you out of the door of the church let alone through the rest of the week. Today’s pastors have literally thrown God’s rules and principles out the window. We were warned about this by Paul: 1Timothy 4:1 Now the Spirit speaketh expressly, that in the latter times some shall depart from the faith, giving heed to seducing spirits, and doctrines of devils. Some may ask what doctrines of the devil are the churches pushing? Well, in case you haven’t been paying attention I will just scratch the surface of the apostasy that has engulfed the church. Keep in mind the definition of apostasy: an act of refusing to continue to follow, obey, or recognize a religious faith; abandonment of a previous loyalty: DEFECTION! This may sound harsh but a simple look at what churches are allowing is far from the biblical principles laid out in scripture.

I testified against a ‘Civil Unions’ bill in my home state of Colorado a few years back that would allow same-sex ‘marriages’ which is a violation of our State Constitution not to mention the Word of God. At that hearing, there were more pastors there to endorse the bill than to oppose the bill. You can see a YouTube clip of my testimony here. We were able to defeat the bill two years in a row and then we lost control of both houses and the governor’s seat and the bill was passed. This is an example of how the devil doesn’t stop his attack on our moral values and we must continue our vigilance in upholding the morals laid out in scripture. My wife grew up Lutheran and the pastor of one of the biggest Lutheran churches in Denver was there to endorse the bill. His mistake. My wife confronted him in the hall outside the hearing room and grilled him to the point where he literally ran away from her because he could not defend his position.

When the studios refused, he filed human rights complaints against them. One of the women shut down her business because of his complaint. The case is currently before the British Columbia Human Rights Tribunal.

Old White Male Professor Advises College-Bound

I don’t go to American Thinker often, but a recent post there from an “old white professor” has some good advice…though I have a bit to add.

So, there’s my advice that trumps everything else: go to a school you can afford. That’ll keep you out of more trouble than anything the old white professor has to say. If you’re not academically inclined (which is why you should take the SAT/ACT even if the college doesn’t require it, so you can know this), seriously consider learning a trade. Even if don’t go into debt, spending a few years learning about things you don’t care about isn’t going to help you anyway.

Let’s get to his advice:

Nearly all college experiences begin with a series of orientation sessions. Most start with the assumption that you are the cursed offspring of a flawed society. You come to college not to be educated but to be reeducated.

The above isn’t really advice, but reinforces my idea: if you’re going to a school like this, you’ve probably already lost the battle. In “the olden days” orientation was just an afternoon learning where everything on campus was, but for many campuses, ideology is everything and orientation has blossomed (wilted?) into preliminary re-education.

The brainwashing will begin in orientation but will not end there. If you live in a dormitory, there will be required sensitivity sessions run by minions from the office of residence life.

Pew: Two Thirds of U.S. Catholics Do Not Believe Eucharist is Body of Christ

Two thirds of U.S. Catholics do not believe what is arguably their Church’s most distinctive teaching: that the Eucharist is the actual body and blood of Jesus Christ, the Pew Research Center has found.

Seven in ten American Catholics (69 percent) believe that what they receive in Holy Communion at Mass on Sundays is ordinary bread and wine that merely symbolizes the body and blood of Christ, Pew revealed.

The Catholic Church teaches that the bread and wine used in Mass actually become the body and blood of Christ during the consecration, when the priest repeats the words that Christ uttered at the Last Supper: “This is my body… This is the chalice of my blood… Do this in memory of me.”

Twilight Zone Nation

A few years ago my husband and I (having left our GPS charger at home) got lost in Montana — which is a thing not to do. The miles are much longer there and the spaces between towns take hours to cross. We knew we’d gone wrong somewhere because the Rockies, which should have been on our left, were straight ahead, looming ever closer and closer. The first town we came to was a ghost town, which provided a Twilight Zone flavor to the whole adventure. Eventually we found a real town with real people who could tell us where we were — our map had left us clueless. After our correction miles, we had added over 100 Montana miles to our trip. How did that happen?

We hadn’t noticed when the road started to bend to the left ever so gradually — it was straight up noon and the mountains too far off to register. We should have veered right, but we missed the opportunity.

I think of this incident because I’m feeling the same unsettling unease about this country. What?! How in the world did we get to this Rod Serling place where drag queens are reading to our children in our libraries? How, in a rational universe, did four ignorant, left-wing, lunatic women attain breathtaking power in less than a year? When did sex trafficking become such a huge crisis? How is it that facts and evidence and law have no pull at all anymore?

Earth’s Last Magnetic Field Reversal Took 22,000 Years, Longer Than Expected

Aug. 8 (UPI) — New research suggests Earth’s last magnetic field reversal was slow-going. Scientists found the reversal of Earth’s magnetic poles took 22,000 years to complete, much longer than previously predicted.

The Earth’s magnetic field and its magnetic poles aren’t static. Over the last few years, the planet’s magnetic north pole has been drifting more than usual, shifting erratically — so much so, that scientists had to redraw the magnetic maps that enable modern navigational systems.

  1. “Pope Francis: Doors ‘Must be Opened, Not Closed’ To Migrants” I disagree, doors must be slammed shut and locked in face of migrants. Definitely to illegals, in the current situation propably to any and all.

    • No reason to listen to anything that escapes his yap until he puts his money where his mouth is and throws open the gates of the Vatican to hordes of african and mid-eastern savages, allowing them to burn, rape and pillage to their heart’s content.

  2. “This is the Same Pattern the Fed Followed Before the Great Depression” but would they really risk to endanger their faithful pets among the leftists? There’s no doubt a recession would hit those the hardest. Imagine no more avocado sandwich, how horrible! (haha) And people in cities generally would be hit more. People in rural areas might loose jobs, but they at least still have land that can feed them until the situation gets better.With the current situation I kind of doubt rural folk is going to be eager to share.

    • Yes, the “wealth skew” (uneven distribution of financial resources) is even greater than during the 1920’s according to Wilfred Hahn. What we are seeing is an attempt to impose economic socialism in which those that have make slaves of those who don’t. Actually, what the elite want is nothing more than latter-day feudalism, (the same old but this time it’s different [only worse!]). The air is being let out of the “Everything Bubble” and all that most of us will be left with is a deflated balloon. Well, at least it didn’t blow up in our faces.

  3. My Pope sounds more and more like Lenin, approaching ever closer to the Marxist Creed but not quite getting there?

    • Still, I translated it through two online translators. I liked the end of Aftbladet’s article: rich white (and not only) men are to blame for everything, and poor gypsies do not succumb to terrorist attacks.
      What a crude brainwashing! Why can’t they work gracefully?

      I don’t know about you, but in our area Gypsies are engaged in drug trafficking. High-profile criminal stories with their participation regularly occur in Russia and Ukraine.

  4. With regard the second article concerning the fed – economic fundamentals are strong in the US, not many other places on the globe.
    Lets get the facts straight before we allow bunkum.
    GDP over 2% per quarter – higher in the next quarter, 1.8million jobs advertised that noone is applying for, increasing wage growth for those at the low end.
    Corporate America can go [swive] itself. For the past 30 years they have raped the American people. Now those goons are toast.
    That is the real story. Not made up stuff as the writer in the 2nd article has proferred.
