After Lying About Her 1/1024th Indian Heritage for Years — Liz Warren Hopes She Can Buy Off Indians for Their Vote

Elizabeth Warren has made up elaborate stories over the years to bolster her claims that she is Native American. The Massachusetts Senator even claimed her parents had to elope because her father’s parents were racist and didn’t approve of their son’s Cherokee girlfriend — she shamelessly claimed her Pawpaw’s high cheekbones were proof she is of Native American descent.

In 1996 the Harvard Crimson identified Elizabeth Warren as a woman of color and Native American.

In 1998 Harvard bragged Elizabeth Warren, “who is Native American”, was their only minority tenured woman on staff.

The Washington Post obtained Elizabeth Warren’s registration card for the State Bar of Texas, revealing Warren identified as an “American Indian.”

It was a lie.

Elizabeth Warren took what could have been given to a REAL Native American — she’s a white woman who stole from minorities and now she’s claiming she will fight for ‘people of color.’

On Monday Liz Warren is hoping to buy the Indian vote for in 2020 after lying for years about her Cherokee heritage.

On Monday Warren will announce her plan to buy the Indian vote with your tax dollars.

Cherokee genealogist Polly Granddaugter tweeted this out on Warren’s plan.

When she no longer needs us, she will forget we exist. She had 6 years to work on these things while she was a Senator. They only became important when she decided to run for POTUS and only then because she has the fake claim/DNA problem.

Airport Worker is Fired for Handing Passenger a Note Saying ‘You Ugly!!!’ as He Passed Through the Security Screening Area

A passenger was shocked when a worker handed him in a note saying, ‘You ugly!!!’ as he passed through a an airport screening area in New York.

Neal Strassner, said a worker at Greater Rochester International Airport in Monroe County, New York, gave him the note as he was passing through the security checkpoint.

Footage of the incident obtained by Strassner which happened in late June shows the as yet unidentified worker handing him the note and she laughs as he passes by.

Another Google Whistleblower Reveals More Evidence of Censorship and Political Bias

A Google insider turned whistleblower has come forward revealing even more evidence of the tech giant’s censorship and political bias after the tech giant tried to use force and intimidation to get him to comply. Zachary Vorhies has gone on record as having grave reservations about the path Google is taking in burying search results, blacklisting websites, and demonstrating political bias in their artificial intelligence algorithms.

Vorhies, who is a Google insider who anonymously leaked internal documents to Project Veritas made the decision to go public in an on-the-record video interview, made the decision after receiving a letter from Google. He says Google called the police to perform a “wellness check” on him. Along with the interview, Vorhies asked Project Veritas to publish more of the internal Google documents he had previously leaked.

Said Vorhies:

“I gave the documents to Project Veritas, I had been collecting the documents for over a year. And the reason why I collected these documents was because I saw something dark and nefarious going on with the company and I realized that there were going to not only tamper with the elections, but use that tampering with the elections to essentially overthrow the United States.”

Vorhies says that releasing the information detailing the lengths Google is going to in order to become a highly biased political machine has been a huge relief. “[Google] was intending to sculpt the information landscape so that they could create their own version of what was objectively true,” said Vorhies.

And based on the fact that Google sent SWAT teams to Vorhies home, it is safe to say they don’t like the fact that he’s spreading the truth about their attempts to decide what is the truth and what information the American people will be exposed to. Google is stooping to the same lows as the mafia to silence any news of their nefarious actions.

Antifa Smuggled in Concrete Slabs to Throw at Trump Supporters During Portland Event

A video out of Portland illustrates how Antifa used broken up concrete slabs to attack Trump supporters during this past weekend’s protests.

“We caught Antifa smuggling concrete slabs within a black case then breaking up the slab & using it to throw at buses carrying right wingers stuck in traffic. This is further evidence of their pre-meditated violence & criminal activity in Portland,” tweeted Elijah Schaffer.

The video shows how Antifa avoided any police scrutiny by transporting the slabs inside a hard black case.

Chicago Democrat Martin Sandoval Raises Funds by Pretending to Assassinate Trump

Pretending to put the president in mortal danger is important national news, unless he’s a Republican. That’s why a rodeo clown in Missouri got fired in 2013 for doing a sketch while wearing an Obama mask, even though that same rodeo had done the same bit with previous presidents. It was branded a hate crime because the national media hated seeing it. But they don’t care if anybody does the same thing or worse to a Republican president, because they hate Republicans.

That’s why they’re not concerned about this. Mark Maxwell, WCIA in Champaign, Illinois:

A series of pictures posted online after a Friday night political fundraising event for state Senator Martin Sandoval (D-Chicago) show an event attendee pointing what appears to be a fake assault weapon at another person wearing a Mexican costume and a mask of President Donald Trump…

The mock assassination pose drew quick, bipartisan condemnation from Governor J.B. Pritzker, the Illinois Democratic Party, and from the Illinois Republican Party alike.

Election 2020: It’s the Crowds, Stupid!

Crowd sizes serve as a good metric again in the run-up to the 2020 election. The Drudge Report joined the fake news brigade with this misleading front-page banner this week.

Did Senator Elizabeth Warren really “pack a crowd” in New Hampshire? Despite the misleading banner, Drudge linked to an article with this headline, “Warren speaks to crowd of hundreds in Franconia.” She “spoke to a crowd of more than 700 voters,” according to the article.

How much more? Certainly, less than 800 or else the headline would have said she “spoke to a crowd of nearly 800 voters.” How did that crowd compare to another campaign rally in the same state on the next day?

Is Warren just another of the 20 desperate Democrats seeking the nomination? Hardly, as she is only one point behind front runner Joe Biden. Warren is not a bottom of the barrel candidate like Bill de Blasio who drew only 15 people to a recent campaign event in Iowa, with more media in his audience than voters.

This reinforces my correlation of crowd sizes and electoral popularity. Warren had 700 attendees and she’s the co-front runner. De Blasio is polling at zero percent and his “crowd” of 15 reflects as much.

Who else held a rally this week in New Hampshire? Another presidential candidate who drew over 11,000 voters to his rally, filling the auditorium to capacity. That’s 15 times the audience that Warren drew. As usual, many more showed up to see the president but couldn’t watch the rally in the actual venue, instead watching outside in the overflow space.

From the photos in this article, it’s safe to conclude that more voters were watching the Trump rally on a big screen television outside the auditorium than were attending Senator Warren’s rally the previous day, in the same state, as a photo from this tweet shows.

Video from Trump’s Thursday night rally shows the size and enthusiasm of the audience.

How Former Antifa Member Says ‘Terror’ Group Label Could Affect Some College Profs (Video)

Former Antifa member Gabriel Nadales, an employee of Campus Reform’s parent organization the Leadership Institute, reacted Sunday to President Donald Trump stating again recently that he is strongly considering labeling Antifa a domestic terror organization.

“Major consideration is being given to naming ANTIFA an “ORGANIZATION OF TERROR,” Trump tweeted Saturday ahead of planned Antifa protests in Portland, Oregon. “Portland is being watched very closely. Hopefully, the Mayor will be able to properly do his job.” It’s at least the second time that Trump has tweeted about consideration being given to labeling Antifa a terror organization.

According to Nadales, doing so would be a good idea for two reasons, as the former Antifa member highlighted Sunday on Fox & Friends.

“First of all, it’s going to dissuade people from joining and it’s going to help us track people down, “Nadales pointed out. “The second part, it’s also going to send a strong message to college professors who think that it’s OK to defend Antifa.”

Nadales named one of the numerous examples where a college professor has advocated for Antifa, which often uses violence.

A professor at the University of Wisconsin-Whitewater, in a recent op-ed, stated that Antifa does not engage in terrorism. Rather, he said, the group engages in “self-defense.”

“I have no idea how trying to pull people out of a bus is a form of self-defense,” Nadales said Sunday while reacting to the Portland protest.

‘It’s a Large Real Estate Deal’: Trump Confirms He’s ‘Looking at’ Buying Greenland

On Sunday, President Donald Trump confirmed reports that he is “looking at” purchasing Greenland from Denmark, what he characterized as “a large real estate deal.”

“We’re very good allies with Denmark. We protect Denmark like we protect large portions of the world. So the concept came up and I said certainly it’s strategically interesting,” Trump told reporters on his way back to the White House.

“We’re looking at it, it’s not number one on the burner,” the president said.

“It’s not number one on the burner, I can tell you that. … Essentially, it’s a large real estate deal,” the former real estate tycoon added. Former presidents Andrew Johnson and Harry Truman tried to buy Greenland from Denmark, but neither of them were real estate tycoons before entering the Oval Office.

Jeffrey Epstein’s Will Leaves $577 Million to Mysterious Trust

Jeffrey Epstein signed his last will and testament on Aug. 8—two days before the 66-year-old sex-offender killed himself in his Manhattan jail cell.

According to the document, which was first revealed by the New York Post, the mysterious money-manager left behind $577,672,654 in personal property.

Epstein is giving all of his property to the “acting Trustees of The 1953 Trust,” though the members of the trust weren’t named in the document.

Left-Wing Protesters Adopted ‘Gauntlet’ At New Hampshire Rally

Hundreds of left-wing protesters formed a gauntlet outside President Donald Trump’s campaign rally in Manchester, New Hampshire, last Thursday, forcing Trump supporters to walk through on their way to the SNHU Arena, and endure taunts of “shame” and “KKK.”

The tactic is similar to one used by left-wing rioters outside the San Jose Convention Center in June 2016, when Trump supporters were assaulted in full view of the media as they attempted to leave the event.

There was apparently no violence in Manchester, thanks in part to the left’s use of so-called “peacekeepers,” who were monitors wearing orange or yellow jerseys. But police — who otherwise did an outstanding job — allowed the gauntlet to form, risking potential confrontations.

Police officers set up a perimeter immediately around the SNHU Arena, but no further, allowing protesters to come face-to-face with Trump supporters. Two officers stood at the end of the gauntlet, apparently monitoring what was happening and conversing with the “peacekeepers.”

The goal of the “gauntlet” tactic appears to be to intimidate and humiliate Trump supporters — and to reflect a sense of moral superiority among Trump opponents.

A secondary goal may be to provoke Trump supporters into responding with violence.

The Authorities Should Assume That Epstein Was Murdered

Given the choice of choosing between human genius or human stupidity for someone being caused harm, you are almost always better off selecting stupidity. That’s a truism, and it underlies the argument that, as a result of an unfortunate string of irresponsible and negligent actions by the MCC federal jail in New York City, accused pedophile Jeffrey Epstein was able to kill himself in custody. However, “almost always” is not the same as “always”, and in this case logic, both legal and practical appears to point otherwise.

At the very least, in investigating Epstein’s death, federal authorities should pursue the case not as an accidental death, but as murder. Murder requires proof of intent to kill. Ordinarily, a series of negligent actions that led to a suicide would rule that out, leaving the worst available potential charges against Epstein’s jailers some form of negligent homicide or manslaughter.

But the law recognizes that in cases of extreme negligence (or recklessness) intent to kill can be imputed. This theory is often termed “depraved heart murder.”

The Nuclear Option: Lives at Stake as Left Blames Law-Abiding for Shootings

It really takes uncommon depravity for someone to use a tragedy such as a shooting to score political points. It is a level of disregard for human life that the vast majority of decent people in America cannot comprehend.

Yet, we seem to have a political stage full of such abjectly depraved people. It is so bad that these people may as well support live-birth abortion. Oh, wait. They do.

As despicable as it was watching all the Democrats running for president scramble over dead bodies to offer the first and most depraved reactions to the recent shootings, it was a political thug in Philadelphia who proved to be the worst.

Six cops were shot last week while risking their lives to make the city safer. A gunman held the officers at bay for hours.

The cesspool city’s mayor — a man named Jim Kenney — flew to the microphones to level blame for the shooting and demand justice.

Did he blame the shooter? The shooter’s parents, who obviously raised some kind of monster? Did he blame his city for the culture of crime that it inspires? Did he blame the pervasive message pushed by his fellow politicians that cops are racist and evil?

No. He blamed law-abiding gun owners.

The Planned ‘Mass Roundup of Americans’ Is No ‘Conspiracy Theory’! With Politicians Pushing ‘Red Flag Laws’, This Flashback to ‘Rex 84’ And ‘Main Core’ Helps Complete the Story

By Stefan Stanford — All News Pipeline — Live Free Or Die

In this very important August 7th story over at the website of Paul Craig Roberts, Ronald Reagan’s former Assistant Secretary of the Treasury for Economic Policy, Roberts reports that much of what we’ve been witnessing across America recently has been an open invitation to tyranny following the release of an FBI document which characterizes ‘conspiracy theories’ as a potential form of ‘domestic terrorism’, with Roberts warning: In effect, the FBI’s document reduces the First Amendment, that is, free speech, to the right to repeat official and prevailing explanations. Any other speech is a conspiratorial belief that can lead to the commission of a crime.

For those who haven’t yet read it, we’ve embedded that FBI document at the very bottom of this story in full for you to read yourselves to form your own opinion about what their document means yet as we had reported on ANP back on August 3rd within this story titled “Is This The ‘Atom Bomb’ That Will Take Down The 1st Amendment And America? With The FBI Dropping This New Bombshell, Let’s Talk ‘Conspiracy Theory”, corrupt politicians and corrupt government agencies will quickly label any true stories about their corruption as ‘conspiracy theories’ in an attempt to destroy those who are seeking truth.

As Roberts points out within his story, the FBI document says that conspiracy theories “are usually at odds with official or prevailing explanations of events.” Note the use of “official” and “prevailing.” Official explanations are explanations provided by governments. Prevailing explanations are the explanations that the media repeats.

And then comes the big BUT which we’ll be happy to emphasize again and again.:

Official and prevailing explanations do not have to be consistent with facts. It is enough that they are official and prevailing. Whether or not they are true is irrelevant. Therefore, a person who stands up for the truth can be labeled a conspiracy theorist, monitored, and perhaps pre-emptively arrested.

And as we’ll explore within the remainder of this ANP story, with ‘truth now treason in the empire of lies’ and the globalists who’ve long been hiding ‘truth’ pushing to have it vanquished from America, much of what has long been called ‘conspiracy theory’ by the mainstream media and ‘official agencies’ is very real indeed, with our focus within the remainder of this story on ‘Rex 84’, ‘Main Core’ and official US government plans for the ‘mass roundup of Americans’ most would still call ‘conspiracy theory’ in 2019 at a time when Democrats are pushing ‘red flag gun laws’ which basically amount to a repeal of the 2nd Amendment ‘Soviet-Union-style’…

Perfectly explaining for us how Democrats could use ‘red flag laws’ to confiscate guns from their political enemies by using the ‘mental health’ of an individual as their excuse to do so, as Susan Duclos had reported on ANP back on August 1st in her story titled “The Designed Destruction Of America — We Were Warned Of The ‘45 Communist Goals’ That Would Destroy America Back In 1963”, we see a perfect example of goal “#39: Dominate the psychiatric profession and use mental health laws as a means of gaining coercive control over those who oppose communist goals”, within this Guns In The News story.:

The idea of confiscating firearms from people who are suffering from mental illness, at first glance, has merit. Nobody wants “crazy” people getting their hands on a gun and going on a shooting spree. It is also a convenient way for the masses to brush away the consequences of red-flag laws. If it doesn’t affect them, they will happily keep their heads down to not draw attention to themselves. Leventri Beria stated in the Russian textbook on Psychopolitics that being labeled insane is so thoroughly feared in capitalist countries that no one, for fear of being labeled themselves, takes the time to thoroughly investigate it.

Mental health has long been used as a repressive tool to silence political opposition. Especially in communist countries. In the Soviet Union people who disagreed with the ideals of the state were labeled insane and incarcerated against their will. According to The Journal of the American Academy of Psychiatry and the Law a study investigating psychiatric abuse in the Soviet Union was conducted in 1989. The study determined that many people incarcerated against their will for being mentally unstable were imprisoned for possessing ideological beliefs that went against the ideals of the communist state and that they, in fact, did not suffer from any mental disorder.

The Role of Gun Control in Dictatorship

The object, of course, is not addressing actual white supremacy. That is a lie told to dim-witted people who think that “others” whom they are taught to hate and fear are living in an entirely different version of the country than they live in, one they can’t see but believe is there. The object is polarization and demonization, though not simply to whip up progressive hatred for normal Americans. The larger purpose is to facilitate the oppression and eventual eradication of normal Americans who refuse to worship the golden calves of socialism and communism.

For years, the Democrats have smiled and told us that they have no intention of infringing rights, or taking anything away, or incarcerating their enemies, and we have known every time that they were lying. We have watched them redefine the language to change the foundations which we used to share as a country and have known why they are doing it. We have seen them progressively attack those who obey the laws, protect their families, pay their taxes, and wish to be left in peace.

Overthrowing a society is dirty work, however, and it has become clear that peace will only come with our surrender or their failure, and even then, failure will be temporary. Eventually, there will be conflict, which brings us to the Second Amendment. The fate of everything the Left intends depends in the end on whether normal, non-communist Americans have the power to make the price of dictatorship so high that the Left will be unwilling to force it to completion. If Americans can be disarmed and neutralized, they can be imprisoned without trials. If they can be made powerless, they can be shot at without fear that they’ll shoot back. If they can be conquered, they can be subjugated and made to serve their totalitarian masters.

The Second Amendment was always about exactly this scenario. The Founders did not insist on the Second Amendment so that they could hunt in perpetuity but because they feared a large, authoritarian government controlled by unethical and immoral politicians and their mobs.

Climate Change Activists Hold ‘Funeral’ For Defunct Glacier in Iceland

Icelandic officials joined climate change activists Sunday in bidding farewell to the nation’s first extinct glacier in what was touted as a “funeral” service for the ice mass.

The ritual, attending by around 100 people, weaved together poetry recitation, moments of silence, and ardent political speeches about the crucial need to battle climate change, which has been blamed for the demise of the Okjökull glacier.

EU Chaos: Italy’s Political Crisis Could Spread to Europe, Warns France’s EU Adviser

ITALY’S political upheaval could spread its tentacles across the European Union, France has warned months after fighting broke out between Rome’s coalition partners.

As the Italian government edges towards collapse, France’s EU adviser Sandro Gozi said Europe should brace itself for “further changes” as the bloc faces yet another challenge in the months leading up to Brexit. At a summit on Sunday, Italy’s anti-establishment Five Star Movement (M5S) attempted to set out its course for the future as the chances of reviving the coalition with the far-right League remains in tatters.

Italian Psychologist Proposes Electric Shock Treatment to Eliminate Prejudices

ROME — An Italian psychologist has proposed modifying people’s unconscious prejudices and stereotypes by subjecting parts of the brain to electric and magnetic impulses.

Over the past 20 years, researchers have attempted to alter people’s ethnic and racial stereotypes and prejudices by providing information that counteracts the prejudice, writesMaddalena Marini, yet these interventions, while effective to some extent, have produced only limited results, especially regarding duration.

[…]

“Studies have allowed us to define a network of brain regions causally involved in these processes, showing that “by increasing or decreasing the activity of some of these areas it is possible to reduce the strength of unconscious stereotypes,” she writes, like “the prejudice that leads to associating acts of terrorism with being of Arab origin.”

Italy: ‘Salvini Sorry But Damage is Done’ Says Di Maio

League leader pulled plug due to high poll rating says M5S chief

(ANSA) — Rome, August 16 — Anti-migrant Euroskeptic League leader Matteo Salvini is “sorry but the damage is done” after pulling the plug on Italy’s first all-populist government over policy differences with the anti-establishment 5-Star Movement (M5S), M5S leader Luigi Di Maio said.

Citing persistent divisions over a high-speed rail link with France, Salvini’s League filed a no confidence motion in Premier Giuseppe Conte on August 9, effectively ending the 14-month alliance with the M5S.

Di Maio reiterated that Salvini had done so because the League was riding high in the opinion polls with 38%, compared to 17% in the March 2018 general election, whereas the M5S’s support has slipped from 33% to 16%.

Di Maio said the M5S, the biggest parliamentary group, would vote against the no confidence motion in Conte on August 20, spelling its probable failure since the second-biggest group, the centre-left opposition Democratic Party (PD), is also expected to vote against it.

That would leave President Sergio Mattarella, the arbiter of the government crisis, in a quandary.

He may try to appoint a PD-M5S caretaker government if those parties can iron out their own apparently irreconcilable policy differences.

PD House Whip Graziano Delrio said Friday a German-style government contract was needed if the two parties were to team up in government.

Italy: German-Style PD-M5S Written Govt Accord Needed Says Delrio

Salvini sorry but damage has been done says Di Maio

(ANSA) — Rome, August 16 — A German-style written government accord is needed between the centre-left opposition Democratic Party and the ruling anti-establishment 5-Star Movement (M5S) for a new government after the far-right League pulled the plug on its alliance with the M5S sparking a government crisis, PD House Whip Graziano Delrio said Friday.

“What is needed is a German-style accord, like that between the CDU and the SPD, something written down,” said Delrio, former PD chairman.

“We sit down, we negotiate, we analyse point by point for the good of the country, calling on the best minds, to give a different approach.

“This country has thus far been obsessed by issues that have not brought anything good, like immigration.

“I’m glad that (Premier Giuseppe) Conte has recognised this”.

Anti-migrant Euroskeptic League leader Matteo Salvini is “sorry but the damage is done” after pulling the plug on Italy’s first all-populist government over policy differences with the M5S, M5S leader Luigi Di Maio said Sunday night.

Citing persistent divisions over a high-speed rail link with France, Salvini’s League filed a no confidence motion in Premier Conte on August 9, effectively ending the 14-month alliance with the M5S.

Di Maio reiterated that Salvini had done so because the League was riding high in the opinion polls with 38%, compared to 17% in the March 2018 general election, whereas the M5S’s support has slipped from 33% to 16%.

Di Maio said the M5S, the biggest parliamentary group, would vote against the no confidence motion in Conte on August 20, spelling its probable failure since the second-biggest group, the centre-left opposition Democratic Party (PD), is also expected to vote against it.

That would leave President Sergio Mattarella, the arbiter of the government crisis, in a quandary.

He may try to appoint a PD-M5S caretaker government if those parties can iron out their own apparently irreconcilable policy differences.

An M5S-PD alliance faces strong internal opposition from many in both paries.

Di Maio and PD leader Nicola Zingaretti have thus far not said anything in public about such a possible tie-up, although former PD leader and ex-PD leader Matteo Renzi, still a force in the party, has come out in favour of it.

On Friday Renzi said the PD should wait and see what the M5S does after Salvini “offered Di Maio everything” after allegedly becoming “really scared” of the government crisis he triggered.

“Everything is great and also absurd,” said Renzi on Facebook.

“I’ve never seen a (government) crisis managed like this. If it weren’t a serious thing it would be laughable! “Salvini feels his post slipping away and realises that only with power can he still have a (brief) future. The captain is really scared. And so he offers everything to Di Maio. Scenarios that put the soccer transfer market in the shade.

“Now we’ll see what the M5S will do: anything can really happen.

“We have only one lodestar: respecting the institutions. Only that”.

Italy: Meeting Between Alitalia, Delta Planned in US — Sources

No date scheduled yet but meeting expected ‘by end of August’

(ANSA) — Rome, August 13 — Work on an industrial plan for troubled Italian airline Alitalia is ongoing and after meetings between representatives for State railways FS, highways operator Atlantia and US carrier Delta, a new meeting with Delta has been planned in the US, financial sources said Tuesday.

The meeting is expected to take place in the coming weeks in Atlanta, the sources said.

No date has been set yet but representatives for the companies are working on a meeting to be held by the end of August, they added.

State railway Ferrovie dello Stato last month chose highways operator Atlantia to be its partner in a consortium to take over troubled Italian airline Alitalia.

The State and US carrier Delta are also set to be involved in the operation to revive the airline.

The former flag-carrier has been in extraordinary administration for two years.

Swedish Courts Cannot Handle the Rise of Criminal Cases, More Police Resources Explained as Cause Behind Increase in Crime

Not enough judges, not enough time, not enough administrative possibilities for Swedish courts to cope with the rise of criminal cases which now are up by 19%.

The Svea Court of Appeal in the Stockholm region alarms that its bunch of unsolved court cases is growing at an incomparable pace and that the court’s burden is becoming increasingly heavy to carry.

UK: Delingpole: Remainers Launch Desperate ‘Operation Yellowhammer’ — A.K.A. Project Fear 3.0

Remain-supporting ex-government ministers led by Philip Hammond have leaked to the press a secret document warning of the perils of No Deal Brexit.

The document — codenamed Operation Yellowhammer — was prepared by civil servants who war-gamed the various possible disaster scenarios if Britain crashes out of the EU on October 31, falls off a cliff edge and is left isolated and without friends on the world stage.

Here are some of their findings:…

You’ll forgive me if I’ve got some of the details wrong. Unfortunately, they were leaked to the Sunday Times — a paper I no longer read since it got so oppressively woke and abandoned its previous pro-Brexit stance in favour of Remain. But I think my list gives a pretty good idea of the flavour of Operation Yellowhammer, whose prognostications are so utterly risible that only a Remainer civil servant could have invented them, and only a diehard Remoaner would be gullible enough to believe them.

What this non-story shows — and it really is a non-story: the only reason anyone is taking it seriously is because of the Sunday Times’s residual prestige dating back to the days when it was still a credible and influential newspaper — is the increasing desperation of the forces of Remain as they mount their last-ditch defences against the inevitable Brexit on October 31.

Operation Yellowhammer is just a warmed-over rehash of Project Fear.

The United Kingdom is due to withdraw from the European Union — as promised by the government for over three years — in October 2019, but the process has been persistently attacked and derailed by vehemently anti-Brexit members of Parliament. While the former Theresa May government survived for years while promising Brexit but doing little to deliver, the new Boris Johnson government has made the clearest promise yet to deliver Brexit by the end of October, and moves are underway to bring the administration down before it has even enjoyed one month in power.

Abbas Accidentally Admits: According to Bible, Palestinians Must Leave Israel

At a speech in Ramallah on Saturday, Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas perpetuated a myth that is one of the main Palestinian talking points.

“We are the Canaanites,” Abbas was quoted in Asharq Al-Awsat as saying.

“We will remain in our homeland, and the outsiders on this land has no right in this country. The land is for its inhabitants, this land is for the Canaanites who were here 5,000 years ago, and we are the Canaanites.”This claim has been made frequently by Palestinian leaders despite its blatant lack of historical veracity.

Dr. Mordechai Kedar, a senior lecturer in the Department of Arabic at Bar-Ilan University, stated that all Arab peoples first arrived in the land of Judea with the Muslim invasion from the Arab Peninsula in 637 CE.

Dr. Kedar explained that tall-tales, or constructive fibbing, was an inherent part of the culture.

“Imagine a Bedouin tribe whose water has dried up,” Dr. Kedar explained. “They move at night to a place where there are trees and water. They settle in and pitch their tents. In the morning, when the residents show up and ask what they are doing there, the Bedouins answer that they have lived there for thousands of years and they are indigenous.”

“They do it because they have to live because if they admit that they are not from this place, they must go away and they will die. They create history just as any culture creates something they need to survive. And they don’t even blink when they say it. Whether they believe it themselves or not is irrelevant.”

Is Russia Hiding Another Chernobyl?

Breaking news from Russia’s frozen Northwest, where a total of four nuclear-monitoring stations have been silenced. The Wall Street Journal says that’s twice as many as last week, “heightening concerns among observers that Russia is trying to hide evidence from an explosion at a missile-test site this month.”

Some background.

Russia has been developing a nuclear-powered cruise missile, the 9M730 Burevestnik or “Petrel” missile. To be clear, that’s a missile powered by nuclear fission, not a missile “merely” carrying a nuclear warhead. On August 8, it’s believed that a Petrel exploded during testing, killing five employees of Rosatom, Russia’s state-owned nuclear energy producer. Three others were injured. That we know of.

Two Rape Jihadis Raped and Murdered a Hindu Teacher in Islamic Bangladesh

After the multiple rape, teacher Jayanti Chakrabarty was killed by Two Rape Jihadis.

Sumita Rodriguez Paul | HENB | Chandpur | July 18, 2019:: When Police had recovered the throat-slit body of a female teacher from Chandpur’s Water Development Board staff quarter area, on Sunday evening, they were even clueless.

The victim, Jayanti Chakrabarty, 45, was a teacher of Shologhar Government Primary School.

Mostafa Kamal Babul, headmaster of the school, said Jayanti was teaching there since 2014. She had taken a day off on Sunday, he added.

“Students who went to her house for home tuition that day (on July 21, 2019) found her lying in a heap of blood on the floor inside,” Babul said.

Later, Additional Superintendent of Chandpur Police Mizanur Rahman, and Officer-in charge of Chandpur model police station Nasim Uddin rushed to the spot. They started investigation.

By then, Jayanti’s husband Alak Chakrabarty lodged an complaint in Chandpur Model Police Station against some unknown persons for the gory murder of his wife. Afterwards, Police arrested Jamal Hossain and Anishur Rahman on suspicion as some neighbors told the police that they saw the suspects coming out from the house of Chakrbarty.

Police arrested Jamal and Anishur from their workplace and residence near Al Rashida areas and Shologhar Pucca Masjid (Mosque) areas, on July 24…

“An Unprecedented Evil Persecution” — Chapter Five: Falun Gong’s Influence on China’s Politics

[…]

The ever-growing movement to quit the CCP and its affiliated organizations, initiated by spiritual practitioners of Falun Gong practitioners, is disintegrating the CCP at its foundation. Spreading like wildfire, it is capturing the hearts of the public. In truth, quitting the CCP is Chinese people’s way to liberate themselves from the ideological shackles. It is a monumental uprising in the spiritual realm and will ultimately manifest into political changes that will alter the course of history.

[The Epoch Times is proud to republish “An Unprecedented Evil Persecution: a Genocide Against Goodness in Humankind” (eds. Dr. Torsten Trey and Theresa Chu. 2016. Clear Insight Publishing). The book helps with the understanding of forced organ harvesting in China by explaining the root cause behind this atrocity: the genocide committed by the Chinese regime against Falun Gong practitioners.

‘An Unprecedented Evil Persecution’ — Chapter Three: Suppressing the Truth is the Root of All Evil

[…]

The CCP, through political, economic and editorial manipulation, let alone the threatening violence against media personnel, has exerted critical impacts on most media in free societies. For instance, the 2014, Freedom House Report ranked Hong Kong’s press freedom as 74 among 197 countries, classified as a “partially free” country. In contrast, in 2002, Hong Kong was ranked 18th and well known as one of the freest countries in Asia. Ever since Hong Kong reverted back to Chinese rule in 1997, subjected to various CCP’s manipulations through the years, Hong Kong has sadly slipped backwards from 18 to 74 in twelve years!

The freedom of the press in Taiwan, similarly influenced by the increasing “exchange programs between China and Taiwan,” has, to some extent, declined as well every year. The 2014 Freedom of the Press Report released by Freedom House ranked Taiwan 47th, ahead of Hong Kong, and classified Taiwan as a “free country.” However, in 2007 Taiwan was placed 32nd, and since then has declined by 15 places! The report suggested that the aforementioned acquisition of Taiwan’s media by a Taiwanese-China tycoon has significantly impaired the press freedom in Taiwan.

Ian Johnson, a former Beijing bureau chief for the Wall Street Journal, who won a Pulitzer Prize for his reporting on Falun Gong, has lifted a number of curtains on the party-state persecution of Falun Gong in his 2005 book Wild Grass:

Declaring Falun Gong a cult was one of the regime’s “most brilliant moves” because it put Falun Gong on the defensive to prove its innocence and “cloaked the government’s crackdown with the legitimacy of the West’s anti-cult movement. The government quickly picked up the vocabulary of the anti-cult movement, launching Web sites and putting forth overnight experts, who intoned that Master Li was no different from Jim Jones, the head of the Peoples Temple who in 1978 allegedly killed 912 members, or the Church of Scientology, whose members are allegedly brainwashed into giving huge amounts of money.”

China Attacks Hong Kong Protesters With Fake Social Posts

IN RESPONSE TO widespread pro-democracy demonstrations in Hong Kong, the Chinese government launched an online disinformation campaign casting the protesters as members of ISIS and cockroaches, according to disclosures made by Twitter and Facebook on Monday. Since the two social networks are blocked on mainland China, the propaganda efforts appear designed to influence perception of the protests overseas. Solidarity demonstrations backing Hong Kong have taken place around the world in recent weeks, and some have been met by counterprotests supporting Beijing.

Twitter announced Monday it had removed over 900 accounts it believes were established by the Chinese government, which were “deliberately and specifically” attempting to sow political discord and undermine “the legitimacy and political positions of the protest movement on the ground.” The accounts were part of a much larger network of around 200,000 accounts Twitter took down before they were “substantially active” on the service.

Chinese Social Credit Score Prevents 2.5 Million “Discredited Entities” From Buying Plane Tickets

Coming to the west soon.

The Communist Chinese government is bragging about its social credit system preventing 2.5 million “discredited entities” from purchasing plane tickets and 90,000 people from buying high speed train tickets in the month of July alone.

“China restricted 2.56 million discredited entities from purchasing plane tickets, and 90,000 entities from buying high-speed rail tickets in July,” tweeted the Global Times, a Chinese government mouthpiece.

As I document in the video below, Chinese citizens are punished by having their social credit score lowered for engaging in a number of different behaviors, including;

— Bad driving. — Smoking on trains. — Buying too many video games. — Buying too much junk food. — Buying too much alcohol. — Calling a friend who has a low credit score . — Having a friend online who has a low credit score. — Posting “fake news” online. — Criticizing the government. — Visiting unauthorized websites. — Walking your dog without a leash. — Letting your dog bark too much.

As of November 2018, 6.7 million Chinese people had already been banned from buying air and train tickets. That number now appears to be surging.

While many on the left and in the media decry China’s Orwellian social credit score system, they simultaneously advocate for a similar thing in the west, where people are deplatformed and have their right to engage in commerce revoked because of their political views.

Illegal Workers Flee Georgia Food Plants After Mississippi ICE Raids

Illegal workers fled a number of Georgia food processing plants this past week after highly-publicized raids by the Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) agency at five Mississippi plants.

This month, ICE agents conducted the largest workplace raid in more than a decade across five food processing plants in Mississippi, netting the arrests of 680 illegal aliens. That same day, though, ICE officials said they released about 300 of the illegal workers back into the U.S. on “humanitarian grounds.” More than 200 of the illegal workers had prior criminal records and a federal criminal investigation is expected to result in convictions of the employers at the plants. The raids have already resulted in job fairs at some of the plants seeking to hire locals.

Those ICE raids, according to reports compiled by the Atlanta Journal-Constitution (AJC), spurred illegal workers in Hall County, Georgia — where numerous food processing plants are located — to flee their jobs in fear that they could be arrested for illegally working in the country.

Immigration as Punishment

[…]

Increasingly, we are told, the worse the immigrants the better. Immigration policy isn’t supposed to benefit you, it’s supposed to hurt you. It should hurt so good.

The madness of this masochistic logic is seen as proof of its holiness.

But, sensible as the new Trump policy is, welfare usage by immigrants is a bit of a red herring. I see too many Americans say in response to open-borders insanity that they only oppose letting in welfare chiselers, while anybody who wants to work hard should be welcome to America.

This rhetoric sounds good, but it is actually a dumb idea founded upon boastful theories of American exceptionalism. We Americans really aren’t anything special on a man-for-man level, we just own a nice big country. As Benjamin Franklin pointed out in 1754, the real reason Americans live better than Europeans is because there aren’t many of us.

Invade, Invite, Implode

Today, American elites continue to subscribe to the post-1754 grand strategy of invade the world/invite the world.

Of course, the U.S. hasn’t added any terribly desirable new territory for Americans to settle since Hawaii in the 1890s, so the benefits to average Americans of continuing to invade the world seem nugatory. On the other hand, Washington, D.C., has become more or less the world capital, with obvious career benefits for Washington elites. So anybody, such as Tulsi Gabbard, who objects to either aspect of the invade/invite consensus is a pariah.

One of the less understood problems facing America is why the native white population has become the despised target of ethnic activists from all the immigrant groups. Why the assumption in the U.S. that all “people of color” should be united against whites when African-Americans and newcomers obviously have numerous different interests?

The Spanish government has announced that the Spanish NGO Proactiva’s ship ‘Open Arms’ — which is currently holding 107 migrants the south Mediterranean — can make its way to Spain to offload the migrants in Algeciras.

Salvini believes that the ship ‘Open Arms’ is anchored off the coast of Italy’s southern island Lampedusa “just to provoke me and Italy.”

AOC, Omar, Tlaib Silent as Palestine Outlaws LGBT Activity in West Bank

Reps. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-N.Y.), Ilhan Omar (D-Minn.), and Rashida Tlaib (D-Mich.) have remained silent after the Palestinian Authority banned LGBT activity in the West Bank. These members of “The Squad” have supported legislation praising the Boycott-Divestment-Sanctions (BDS) movement against Israel and voted against legislation condemning it. PJ Media reached out to them for comment on the move, and they have remained silent.

Early Monday morning, The Jerusalem Post reported that the PA and Palestine Police had outlawed LGBT activity in the West Bank and threatened to arrest members of the LGBT group Al-Qaws for Sexual & Gender Diversity in Palestinian Society. Al-Qaws was planning a gathering for members in Nablus at the end of the month. The group only has offices in Israel — in East Jerusalem and in Haifa.

NYC Mayor’s Wife Nixes Popular Saint to Honor Drag Queens

New York City Mayor de Blasio’s wife has rejected the results of a public vote calling for a statue of Mother Cabrini (pictured), a Catholic saint, and instead opted to honor other “women,” including two drag queens.

Chirlane McCray, the mayor’s wife, launched a “She Built NYC” program and invited the public to vote on the names of women they want the city to recognize with a statue. Mother Cabrini got more votes than any other woman (219), yet McCray’s panel rejected the public’s choice.

The Brain-Washing War on America’s Mind and Soul

by Diana West

There is a sinister war underway, a war of mental conditioning, as a new united front of communists, socialists, and liberals in media and politics attack the American mind and soul as something immoral and hateful—something to be reviled as “racist” in every tweet and every news story, and demonized as “white nationalist” over every airwave, all to a point of reflexive consensus in the public square. …

The question then becomes, should the cataclysm come upon us and Trump not win re-election, how, in a Democratic administration of a President Kamala Harris, Elizabeth Warren, or Cory Booker et. al., do millions of American patriots not become the new kulaks of Stalin’s USSR, the New Jews of Hitler’s Germany?

It’s quite clear that in the Democrats’ cold, hard eyes, it is not only “racist” and “white nationalist” to build a wall, it’s “racist” and “white nationalist” to survive.

UK: Gay Wedding is Broadcast on Songs of Praise for the First Time as Two Men Tie the Knot in Front of Congregation and TV Cameras

A gay wedding was broadcast for the first time on Songs of Praise yesterday.

The ceremony for Jamie Wallace, 27, and Ian McDowall, 39, took place at the Rutherglen United Reformed Church, near Glasgow. It is one of the few Christian denominations to allow same-sex marriage.

Such services are currently banned by the Church of England and the Church in Wales.

Mr Wallace and Mr McDowall are the first gay couple to marry at the Rutherglen church and did so after the local congregation gave its backing.

Mr Wallace, a sociology lecturer, said: ‘Jesus preaches about love, inclusion, kindness, compassion.

‘A good lady who comes to this church told us in one of our discussions, people will change, and don’t underestimate older people, either. They just need to think about it, and they’ll get there one day.

‘As a committed Christian, being able to marry the man I love with all my heart and soul, before God, in the church I love, with my family, friends and the congregation around us, is something I’ve dreamed of.

‘Now it’s actually happened, I’m proud my church is welcoming and open to same-sex couples.’

Mr Wallace went on to praise the church for being ‘in tune with modern Scotland’.

UK: LGBT Activist Appeals to Human-Rights Court in Cake Fight

An LGBT activist who lost a years-long fight in British courts over his demand that a Christian baker create a cake promoting same-sex marriage contends the ruling violates his “human rights.”

And he wants the European Court of Human Rights to rule.

It was the U.K. Supreme Court that ruled Ashers bakery had a right not to promote same-sex marriage and the decision had nothing to do with the homosexuality of activist Gareth Lee.

Christians have a right not to promote messages that violate their religious beliefs, the court rule. U.S. courts have ruled similarly.

Now Lee claims the Supreme Court “failed to give appropriate weight” to his own rights under the European Convention of Human Rights.

His lawyers said the new case won’t affect the Ashers, because it is targeting U.K. law.

‘We Are Moving Into a New, Controlled Society Worse Than Old Totalitarianism’ — Zizek on Google Leak

Modern censorship is more dangerous than open totalitarianism, it being concealed and incorporated in our daily routine, says Slovenian philosopher Slavoj Zizek, commenting on the insider leak detailing Google’s news blacklist.

The intellectual told RT he’s not advocating for online anarchy, comparing it to snuff movies in hardcore pornography — some regulation should be in place to block harmful content on the internet, he says. But hiding political motives for suppressing voices online is what worries Zizek the most.

“We all know we have to censor things at some level, but the main rule for me is that the process should be transparent. Not in the way — I’m talking about the developed West — it is done now, when all of a sudden somebody is prohibited and you are not even allowed to debate it,” Zizek explains. The “false choice” between politically correct censorship and radical liberalism is a trap, he believes.

This week, conservative transparency group Project Veritas published documents it received from an ex-Google employee. The documents appeared to confirm that Google can boost or de-rank news sources based on a seemingly biased set of internal rules. Calling the practices “dark and nefarious” the whistleblower, Zachary Vorhies, also leaked a doc detailing Google’s “blacklist” that lists nearly 500 websites, including both conservative and leftist media outlets.

  1. I could do big (very big!) News reviews from Russia, but I have difficulty translating. Here is one such news.

    Butovo is one of the districts of the Moscow Region that was swallowed up by the agglomeration of Moscow. In addition to high-rise buildings, there are still private households. Muslims are very fond of such places and set up their places of worship there (in Moscow there are only 4 mosques).

    In the residential complex “Buninsky” a woman from a traumatic weapon was wounded by a Friday prayer participant

    A native of Central Asia nearly killed a mother with a child in New Moscow. The man shot the woman with the stroller in which the baby was in cold blood. It is reported that the incident happened when a resident of New Moscow made an Asian comment because he shouted and cursed. In response, the migrant took out a pneumatic gun and went to the woman. The Muscovite took the child into her arms and ran into the porch to save herself from the aggressive man. She managed to run into the elevator, but an armed guest from Central Asia managed to shoot a victim before the lift doors closed. The bullet hit the woman’s head.

    The neighbors called an ambulance for the victim. Eyewitnesses of the state of emergency state that after the attack on the mother with the child, the Asian shot several times towards the playground, and also broke the mirrors of several cars. Deboshira was detained in hot pursuit. A criminal case has been instituted on the fact of his antics

    People are outraged in social networks: how gently the police detain this Central Asian. If you compare how they recently beat peaceful protesters in the center of Moscow.

  2. Here is another monstrous story from Ingushetia (the North Caucasus near Chechnya). There is a lot of noise in the Russian media on this subject

    Here is what I managed to find in English

    The Russian media has been gripped by the story of a seven-year-old girl, Aisha Azhigova, who was crippled by constant beatings of the aunt that raised her. Aisha was born and lived in Ingushetia, a republic within Russia in the North Caucasus.

    The inhumane treatment of this child has made the discussion of domestic violence in Russia in general and in the Russian North Caucasus in particular an object of the media’s attention.

    Maybe you will find more.

    One of the latest articles in Russian.
    https://www.kavkazr.com/a/30117247.html

    n Ingushetia and Chechnya, it is customary for children to remain with their father’s family after the divorce. Most often, human rights activists say, paternal relatives are involved in children if the children went to him, and not the father of the children.

  3. “Cardinal Francis Arinze: ‘Europeans Must Stop Encouraging the Migration of Africans’

    Cardinal Francis Arinze has slammed left-wing religious leaders pushing mass migration, urging people in the west to encourage young Africans to stay in and improve their own countries.

    86-year-old Arinze, who was one of the principal advisors to Pope John Paul II, told the Catholic Herald, “Europeans must stop encouraging the departure of young Africans. Africa needs them.”

    Cardinal Francis Arinze for Pope!

  4. Horst Seehofer has a known track record of announcing things that sound popular and then more or less quietly reneging on them when there is political headwind against implementation. In certain circles he is called “Drehhofer” (“Turnaround-Hofer”) for this.

  5. Ah, and Trump. As much as I like how he rips through the politicos most of the time, this wasn’t the brightest moment. Buying Greenland is not “a large real-estate deal” since the land is not vacant. It is more akin to how classic monarchies traded their subjects, with or without violent conquest. People are living there for whom a change of jurisdiction would mean drastic changes, beginning with having no more public health insurance. If they wanted to become Americans, they would say so themselves. If Trump thinks of the historic Alaska deal, well, to the lives of indigineous people there it made really no difference back then whether the Tsar or the President held a piece of paper that said it owned their country. This is very much different today.
