Gates of Vienna News Feed 9/3/2019

The defection of a “Conservative” member of Parliament to the opposition has cost Prime Minister Boris Johnson his majority, and brought a snap election closer. Nigel Farage, the leader of the Brexit Party, said he will throw his support behind Mr. Johnson if the latter pledges to scrap the Brexit deal negotiated by Theresa May with the EU.

CNN Keeps Pro-Trump Latino Off Air While Far Left Opinions From Donna Brazile, Shep Smith and Juan Williams All Over Fox News

The 2020 presidential election is only 14 months away, and the leftist media appears to be to ramping up their efforts to make only anti-Trump messaging available to their audiences. CNN, in particular, appears to be sending a message to guests who partake in their panel discussions—if you support President Trump, or even hint that you agree with anything he says or does…you’re no longer welcome on the low-ratings cable news network.

Meanwhile, the new FOX News can’t seem to get enough opinions from Trump-hating hosts like Shep Smith, Neil Cavuto, Juan Williams and debate cheating queen, Donna Brazile.

Less than two years ago, Fox News’ Tucker Carlson trashed the former interim DNC Chair Donna Brazile for giving Hillary Clinton the debate questions while she was employed by CNN. Now, Brazile is a regular host on FOX News, where she regularly spews anti-Trump on “The Five” as a guest co-host.

President Trump tweeted about his disgust with FOX News for hiring Donna Brazile, who was fired by CNN for cheating to give Hillary debate questions while she was employed by the anti-Trump network.

Homes of Crooked Union Presidents Who Donate Millions to Democrat Party Raided by Feds

For decades, the United Auto Workers (UAW) have shamelessly been funneling funds collected from dues-paying members to help elect Democrats. In return, Democrat lawmakers have done absolutely nothing to help keep manufacturing jobs in America.

In 2012, we stood side-by-side with Michigan union workers in Lansing to defend their right to not belong to a union who funneled their dues into the campaigns of Democrat lawmakers with whom they were not politically aligned. We were shoved, screamed at, threatened, and even had marine distress horns blown directly into our ears. Union leaders walked around the Lansing Capitol building dressed in suits, whispering in the ears of union members, making sure they were keeping the pressure on lawmakers and keeping anyone who dared to support anti-union workers in line. As a woman, who was under constant physical threat by hundreds of men, it was one of the scariest days of my life.

In 2016, Open Secrets revealed that the UAW donated over $1.2 million to Democrat candidates and $0 to Republican candidates.

In 2018, the UAW threw their financial support behind some of the most anti-Trump, pro-impeachment Democrats in Congress, including United States Representatives Nancy Pelosi, Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, Jerry Nadler, Elijah Cummings, Eric Swallwell, Sherrod Brown and James Clyburn.

The crooked leaders of the UAW who’ve been funneling money into the Democrat coffers for decades.

On August 5, 2019, former UAW President Norwood Jewell, was sentenced to 15 months in jail for his part in a wide-ranging multi-million dollar corruption scandal.

Detroit Free Press reports — Feds painted him as a “big shot and a fat cat” who on one occasion spent two months living in a Palm Springs, California, villa using thousands of dollars in training center money supplied by Fiat Chrysler Automobiles during conferences.

Hurricane Dorian Lashing Central Florida’s East Coast; Hurricane Warnings Extended Into North Carolina

Hurricane Dorian has finally begun its long-awaited march up the Southeast coast, prompting hurricane and storm surge warnings from Florida’s east coast to eastern North Carolina. Outer rainbands are lashing central Florida’s east coast with heavy rain and gusty winds.

Dorian’s wind intensity has backed off from Sunday’s peak, currently a Category 2hurricane. Regardless of its intensity and track, Dorian will have a significant, damaging impact from Florida’s Atlantic coast to parts of Georgia, South Carolina, North Carolina and possibly southeastern Virginia this week.

Lawyers for the John Doe filed the letter Tuesday — just a day before Epstein’s self-proclaimed “sex slave” Virginia Roberts Giuffre is expected to join her lawyers in court as they continue efforts to unseal thousands of pages of documents related to her civil lawsuit against the dead pedophile’s alleged procuress.

Minnesota State Fair Attempts to Shut Down Hilarious Pro-Trump Flag Display

The Minnesota State Fair Organization has gotten involved to shut down a grassroots movement to fly pro-Trump flags while riding on the SkyGlider at the fair.

Pro-Trump fairgoers were greeted by police officers on Aug. 30th and told they would be arrested if they continued to display their flags. The police even jumped on the SkyGlider with the group of Trump supporters to make sure they stopped displaying their Trump 2020, Thin Blue Line, and Betsy Ross flags. That didn’t stop them. They flew the flags anyway but no one was arrested…

The Minnesoa GOP responded to the order by not defending the pro-Trump activists and bowing to the State Fair Organization:

“While we appreciate the enthusiasm of Republicans across the state, The Republican Party of Minnesota had no knowledge of the flag/banner drop, does not condone the activity, nor was our organization involved in any way, shape, or form with that effort,” the MNGOP said in an email.

Ocasio-Cortez Tries to Help Bail Out ‘Activists’ Arrested for Assaulting Police, Carrying Weapons

On Saturday, about 200 people participated in a much-publicized and much-maligned “straight pride” parade in Boston put on by a group calling itself “Super Happy Fun America.” There to greet them were about five times as many “anti-fascist” counter-protesters ready to “protect” the city from the “homophobic” paraders. By the end of the day, the Boston police arrested 36 people, including “activists” who came armed with dangerous weapons and who proved they were prepared to get rough, even with police. In response, two members of the “Squad” of far-left freshmen Democratic congresswomen urged their supporters to donate to help bail out the “allies & accomplices” who “put themselves on the line protecting the Boston community.”

Proposed Federal Agency Would Create Criteria to “Identify” Potentially Violent People

There is a push on for the creation of another unconstitutional federal agency that would create systems to identify “early signs of changes in people with mental illness that could lead to violent behavior.”

Coupled with “red flag” laws, this sounds like the beginning of a dystopian nightmare.

According to the Washington Post, the proposal is part of a larger initiative known as the Health Advanced Research Projects Agency (HARPA). The agency would operate under the Health and Human Services Department. According to the HARPA website, the agency would be modeled after the Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency (DARPA) that operates as a research arm for the Pentagon.

HARPA would work with private companies, other federal agencies, and academia, to coordinate and promote health-related research. According to the HARPA website, the federal agency would “develop biomedical capabilities — detection tools, treatments, medical devices, cures, etc. — for the millions of Americans who are not benefitting from the current system.”

In the wake of the recent highly publicized shootings and calls for the federal government to “do something” to prevent gun violence, supporters of HARPA have proposed adding a “SAFE HOME” project to HARPA. SAFE HOME stands for “Stopping Aberrant Fatal Events by Helping Overcome Mental Extremes.”

You have give the people pushing HARPA credit for their ability to seize on tragedies in order to garner political support for their proposal. The HARPA plan apparently hadn’t really gained much traction since it was initially proposed in 2017. By focusing on gun violence, the supporters of HARPA may have found the political lever they needed to push their plan forward and get the agency created.

Rep. Ilhan Omar’s Husband Wants Divorce After Affair Bombshell: Source

Ilhan Omar’s marriage appears to be headed for the rocks, a longtime friend of the couple told The Post.

The congresswoman’s husband, Ahmed Hirsi, the source said, is poised to file for divorce after the revelation in a bombshell court filing that she allegedly had an affair with DC political consultant Tim Mynett.

The Minnesota congresswoman and her husband allegedly separated in March, and Omar asked Hirsi to divorce her around that time because she didn’t want to file the papers — but Hirsi refused, telling her if she wanted a divorce she should do it herself, said the source, who has known both parties for 20 years.

Seinfeld Actor Rips Will & Grace Actors Request to Publicize List of Hollywood Trump Supporters: “I’m Embarrassed for Both of Them” [Video]

John O’Hurley, perhaps best known for his role as J. Peterman on “Seinfeld,” says that “Will & Grace” stars Eric McCormack and Debra Messing should be ashamed of themselves for appearing to advocate for the doxxing and blacklisting of Hollywood Trump supporters.

Today, during his appearance on Fox News, conservative actor John O’Hurley, who’s best known for his role as Elaine’s boss, “J. Peterman,” on the hit “Seinfeld” show, was asked to share his thoughts on the “Will & Grace” stars asking for the names of the attendees at Trump’s fundraiser to be released. O’Hurley said he was embarrassed for both of the Will & Grace stars.

“Let me just say that I’m embarrassed for both of them,” O’Hurley told the Fox News host. “And I’ll say this because I know them both and I’ve worked with Debra before. They’re both smart people, and they do wonderful work.”

“But they’re pushing a case that falls apart from the sheer weight of its lunacy, as though the Hollywood community needs to be purged of this social and intellectual hygiene problem called ‘conservative thinking,” O’Hurley said, as he laughed. “It underscores the fact that we aren’t receptive to diversity of thought, which is the exact opposite of what you feel the liberal way would be. I find that obscene.”

Sheriff Mistakes Innocent Man for Suspect, Dumps 10 Rounds Into Him—no Charges

Kimble County Sheriff Hilario Cantu is taking fire in the form of criticism after he opened fire on an innocent man, dumping 10 rounds into him and his truck. Quite unlike what the general public would face, in the form of criminal charges, Cantu will likely face no charges, serve no time in jail, and will potentially not even be disciplined for shooting up the wrong moving vehicle. What started out as a traffic stop for a missing license plate nearly turned deadly for both one police officer and one hapless innocent bystander.

When officer Lee Meadow pulled over a Gray Chevy Colorado pickup he had no idea the motorist would allegedly pull out a gun and shoot at him as he was standing beside the driver’s side window. After the certain brush with death, the suspect fled. Meadow then radioed in that a suspect in a Gray Chevy Colorado had shot at him and then fled.

Hearing the call come over the radio, Cantu and another deputy grabbed some long guns, and ran out of the police precinct to intercept the wanna-be cop killer. Cantu and his deputy took a position along an exit of the highway and noticed a truck coming in their direction and believed it to be the suspect vehicle. Cantu took aim and fired 10 rounds of .223 ammunition from his AR-15 into the truck. But there was one major problem. The truck Cantu shot was a White Silverado not a Gray Colorado. It also had only two doors—not four.

Despite there being a difference in size between the two vehicles, and the fact the truck was a completely different color, Cantu fired at the truck nonetheless. The sheriff’s bullets found their mark with at least one of the bullets piercing the side of Hugo Reyes, an oil field worker from West Texas. Reyes was on the phone with his wife, Amparo Villareal, at the time he was shot. She told reporters:…

‘So Shocking and Brazen’: 3 People Shot Outside Minnesota State Fair, Police Say

Three people were shot outside the Minnesota State Fair on Monday night, as authorities are investigating the gunman’s whereabouts hours after the Labor Day shooting sent thousands of fairgoers into panic, police told The Washington Post.

St. Paul Police spokesman Steve Linders said no arrests have been made and that the identity of the gunman remains unknown. The three injured men — two 20-year-olds and an 18-year-old — suffered nonfatal injuries and are expected to survive, Linders said.

“It was truly a chaotic scene,” he said early Tuesday. “To see something like this is nothing short of outrageous.”

The shooting near the nation’s second-largest state fair concludes a summer marred by a stretch of mass shootings that killed more than 50 people in August and injured dozens more. It comes days after a mass shooting in West Texas that killed at least seven people and injured 22 renewed calls from Democrats and 2020 presidential candidates for President Trump and Republicans to tighten gun regulations…

Patient Sentenced for Scorning Arab Employee

According to the facts reported in the judgment, the complainant, of Arab origin, worked as a nursing assistant in a hospital in the Montreal area. During an exchange with a patient, the patient aggressively asked him to leave, told him to return home and treated him with contempt for his ethnicity.

The hospital coordinator had to intervene, but the patient refused to apologize and asked to be served by other employees who were not of Arab origin, which was refused.

When the patient was contacted by an investigator from the Human Rights and Youth Rights Commission to obtain his version of the facts, he reiterated his remarks and threatened to physically attack the complainant.

During the hearing, the patient tried to justify himself because he was under the effect of morphine, but the judge concluded that anger or intoxication can not serve as a valid excuse for holding discriminatory remarks…

Hungary Charges Syrian IS Suspect With Imam Beheading

Hungarian prosecutors on Tuesday charged a Syrian man arrested in Budapest last year of terrorism and crimes against humanity including the beheading of an imam in Syria in 2015.

According to a statement from the Budapest Chief Prosecution Office, prosecutors are seeking life imprisonment without parole for the 27-year-old man, identified as F. Hassan.

The authorities believe he commanded a small unit of the Islamic State group in Homs province in 2015 tasked with terrorising and executing civilians and religious leaders who refused to side with the terror group.

He is accused of personally taking part in the beheading of an imam in the town of al-Sukhnah, as well as the murders of three other people in the area between May 13 and 15 in 2015.

His unit also killed at least 25 people in the town during the period including women and children, according to the prosecutors’ statement.

(by Andrea Pinto) Yesterday a small appetizer of what could happen with a yellow-red government. Luigi Di Maio, after the meeting with the prime minister in charge Giuseppe Conte put the ball back in midfield raising with 20 proposals of the MoVimento essential. We do not touch the security decree bis, we will have to proceed with the progressive autonomy, remove the management of the highways to Atlantia and cut the parliamentarians. These are the most indigestible points for the Democratic Party that have sent on a rampage Nicola Zingaretti: “Slogans are not enough for us, we need concreteness. We do not look at the colors of political forces, we work for the country “. Zingaretti, then explained to his parents: “He told me he has to ask others. It does not even have the power to decide”. The group leader Stefano Patuanelli throw water on the fire: “Nothing to worry about, a solution will be found”. Yet it was he, in an interview with the sheet, who explained that if the Democratic Party wants a solid government, it must know that Di Maio’s presence in a prestigious role is a guarantee of stability. The basic problem is the role of Di Maio within the new government: vice-premier? Minister of the Interior, Defense and Labor? The Pd, therefore, wants to understand if there is or not the veto on Di Maio: “It is unacceptable, we did not put it on Zingaretti “.

Di Maio’s accusations: the Democratic Party does not want the law on conflict of interest, does not want to stop the drills, does not want to stop the incinerators. The prelude to a marriage with divorce already written…

UK: ‘Parliament Has Betrayed the People’: Brexiteers React to Remainer MPs Taking Over the Commons

Brexiteers have called out the “betrayal” of MPs voting to take over Commons business in order to push a bill that could make a no deal Brexit illegal.

MPs voted late on Tuesday night 328 to 301 on the motion to “give backbench MPs control of parliamentary time tomorrow to pass legislation aimed at preventing a no deal Brexit” and forcing another delay to Brexit.

The vote is to happen tomorrow, and Prime Minister Boris Johnson confirmed that the government would be tabling a motion calling for a snap General Election if MPs voted to thwart his Brexit plans.

VP Pence Tells Truculent Ireland to Cooperate With Britain on Brexit

Online Protests Against Killing of Turtledoves in Morocco

Probe opened after videos and photos posted online

(ANSAmed) — RABAT, AUGUST 29 — Animal activists and regular citizens in Morocco are protesting online after videos and photos were posted showing five hunters proudly standing by more than a thousand turtledoves they had killed in the region of Marrakech.

“This isn’t the jungle, why should we tolerate something so senseless?” one online protester said.

“Why should we allow these Bedouins into our country when they don’t deserve it?” another said.

The group of tourists depicted in the photo had come from Persian Gulf countries to hunt migratory birds.

Greenpeace Maroc is fighting the agency that promotes trips for hunters.

The wave of protest is so strong that the Moroccan Water and Forestry Ministry has opened an investigation identifying the place where the men hunted and the agency that brought them there.

A formal charge of poaching made against the tour operator states that the agency “assumes responsibility for acts committed by its clients”.

The agency’s license was revoked because the hunters “surpassed by nearly three times the regulatory quota for prey”.

The case will now be handled by regular judicial authorities.

If I Can Hit a Six With a Bat, Can’t I Kill a (Kaffir) Man With a Sword? — Former Pak Cricket Captain

Former Pak cricket captain Javed Miandad’s threat to India over Kashmir.

India Today Web Desk | New Delhi | Sept 1, 2019:: While Pakistan Prime Minister Imran Khan continues to threaten India with war over the Kashmir issue, another Pakistani cricket captain has now gone viral for spewing vitriol against India.

A video is doing the rounds on social media in which popular former Pakistan cricketer Javed Miandad can be seen brandishing a sword as he claims to show solidarity with Kashmiris.

In what can be seen as a demonstration, Miandad, wearing the Pakistan cricket team’s jersey, can be heard saying that if he can wield a bat, he can also wield a sword.

“Kashmir bhaiyo fikar mat karo hum aapke saath hai. Mere paas balla bhi hai, pehle chakka maara tha, ab yeh [sword] bhi hai (Kashmiri brothers don’t worry. We are with you. Earlier I used a bat to hit a six, now I can use this sword)” Javed Miandad said.

As Miandad sheathes the sword in his hand, a voice in the background can be heard saying, “Balla bhi tez tha ab talwar bhi tez hai. (The bat was sharp, now the sword is sharp)”

To this, Javed Miandad proudly shows off his sword again and exclaims that if he can use a bat to hit a six, he can use the sword to kill a man. “Jab main balle se chakka maar sakta hoon tu iss [talwar] se insaan kyu nahin maar sakta, (if I can hit a sixer with a bat, can’t I kill a man with a sword)” is his smug admission.

This is not the first time Javed Miandad has made controversial remarks. He had previously too bayed for blood, asking Kashmiris to pick up arms. After India decided to abrogate Article 370 which gives special power to the state of Jammu and Kashmir, Miandad had claimed that the Indian government is a “coward” and that Pakistan has not kept a nuclear arsenal for show but to deploy on India. “Hume mauka chahiye aur hum saaf kar denge+ (we just need a chance, we will wipe out India)” he told the media.

Earlier, the former Pakistan cricketer also said he will visit the Line of Control (LOC) with other sportspersons to propagate peace at the border…

Colombia: FARC Terrorists Assassinate Local Politicians After Declaring War

Police found a mayoral candidate, her mother, and four others dead in western Cauca, Colombia, on Monday, victims of an ambush by Marxist FARC terrorists.

The Colombian government is offering 150 million pesos ($43,574.25) for information on the whereabouts of a terrorist known as “Majimbu” or “Majin Boo,” and his accomplice known only as Marlón, who authorities have blamed for the massacre.

The killings follow the release of two videos depicting fugitive leaders of the Revolutionary Armed Forces of Colombia (FARC) calling for all-out war against the Colombian government, which they refer to as an “oligarchy,” for allegedly violating the 2016 peace deal. The deal offered uncontested senate seats to FARC leaders, including the two now declaring war: “Ivan Marquez” and “Jesús Santrich.” Santrich appears to have abandoned the peace deal after being indicted for attempting to smuggle thousands of kilograms of cocaine into the United States.

Investigation: Anti-ICE “Never Again Action” Not the Spontaneous Grassroots Group it Claims to be

Over the past several months, Never Again Action (NAA), a purportedly spontaneous grassroots Jewish group, has burst into the public eye by staging and videotaping protests at Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) and other government facilities across the country.

But, as a joint investigation by the Legal Insurrection Foundation and the Washington Free Beacon has revealed, NAA is not what it purports to be. NAA is a repackaging of the same activists who organize with far-left, anti-Israel groups such as IfNotNow (INN), American Muslims for Palestine (AMP), Jewish Voice for Peace (JVP), and CodePink. There is every reason to believe that these obsessive anti-Israel activists have a hidden agenda: to insert themselves at the forefront of the immigration issue to hijack the movement and turn it against Israel, as has been done repeatedly since the Ferguson riots in 2014. NAA is not just astroturf, it’s a deception.
