Media Contrives New Hysteria Out of Violent Trump Meme Video

The media has contrived yet more hysteria over a meme video being played at an event hosted by Trump supporters which depicts Trump as an assassin carrying out violence against the media and his political enemies.

“A video depicting a macabre scene of a fake President Trump shooting, stabbing and brutally assaulting members of the news media and his political opponents was shown at a conference for his supporters at his Miami resort last week,” reports the New York Times.

The origin of the original video is a scene from the 2014 movie Kingsman: The Secret Service wherein members of a church congregation are massacred.

Project Veritas’ Alleged CNN Whistleblower Claims Network is ‘Pumping Out Propaganda’

Undercover recordings made by an alleged ‘whistleblower’ capture CNN employees casually confirming the network’s anti-Trump bias and show company president Jeff Zucker telling top news executives to focus solely on impeachment even at the expense of other important news, according to the conservative activist group that posted the bombshell footage online.

Project Veritas, whose founder, James O’Keefe, describes himself as a “guerrilla journalist” — built up the release on social media with an “#ExposeCNN” hashtag, and Monday published the first segment of what is billed as a multi-part series. The video features Cary Poarch, who claims he was a satellite uplink technician at CNN’s Washington Bureau before, he says, his “dream job” quickly turned into a nightmare due to CNN’s blatant bias.

In the tapes, Zucker orders CNN staffers to ensure blanket coverage of attempts to impeach President Trump simply for ratings, admitting that the impeachment process itself will go nowhere.

EU Can Order Facebook to Remove ‘Hate Speech’ Even if it’s Outside Europe, Top Court Says in Landmark Ruling

Facebook must comply with demands from EU nations to remove content deemed illegal, even if the material falls outside of their jurisdiction, a top court has ruled. The decision could undermine freedom of speech on the internet.

The European Court of Justice, the bloc’s top court, said on Thursday that an individual country can order Facebook to remove posts, photographs, and videos, and even restrict access to these materials to people all over the world.

According to the Luxembourg-based court, a national court of any EU country has the right to instruct the social media giant to take down posts considered defamatory in regions beyond its jurisdiction.

Germany Election 2019 Polls Latest: AfD Expected to Soar in Vote in Huge Merkel Blow

Residents of the German state of Thuringia will head to the polls on Sunday, October 27. According to the latest voting intention polls, the AFD could sweep up votes, continuing a trend in state elections seen this year already.

Voters will elect the 91 seats making up the Landtag of Thuringia.

The last vote in the state saw the AFD in fifth with just 10.6 percent, well behind the Angela Merkel’s Christian Democrats (CDU) on 33.5 percent.

But the most recent Politico poll, which accumulates all available public polls, puts AFD ahead in Thuringian voting intention with 24 percent.

Romanian Justice Has Decided to Play “Hide and Seek”, for Fear That This Case Might Influence the Presidential Election

I have finally received a reply from the Romanian High Court of Justice, after a delay of a full month. But this letter only came because I have already sent my Appeal Letter to them, and a similar letter was sent to the Central Electoral Bureau, complaining about the Justice System and the irregularities regarding the organizing of the Romanian Presidential Election of this year.

This letter didn’t tell me anything that I didn’t know already, that they rejected my case one month ago as groundless. But the mystery of this delay is not the only mystery.

Imagine having two cases at the Romanian High Court of Justice: let’s call them Case 1 and Case 2. And imagine being invited (one month ago) in a Court Meeting for the Case 1, while simultaneously, holding a secret Court Meeting for Case 2, where you are not invited, and about whose existence you will only find out several days later.

Now, imagine that both cases were rejected as groundless, and Case 1 completely disappears from their website, for which you can still make an appeal in 5 days time, but their letter arrives one month latter. After a week, you got angry and send them an Appeal Letter anyway, which will normally take 5 days to reach its destination.

In the same day, after sending the Appeal Letter, you realize that Case 1 has reappeared, but now, Case 2 vanishes mysteriously. At this point you don’t know what to do and decide to wait for a week to see what might happen. After one week, Case 2 reappears as “Case Closed”, for which you can ask for a reexamination, so you decide to write another letter.

After another two weeks, you finally receive a letter informing you that you have 5 days to send your Appeal Letter, which you’ve sent already weeks before.

Can anyone make any sense of this?…

Triumph of Traditionalism: Poland’s Law and Justice Party Increases Majority in National Elections

Poland’s governing Law and Justice Party (PiS) has increased its vote share in national elections, despite being hounded by the European Union and the global left.

The populist-leaning national conservative party, which is pursuing a policy programme “far from neoliberalism, and equally far from socialism”, has secured enough votes for an absolute majority in Poland’s Sejm — equivalent to Britain’s House of Commons — and cleared the soft-left globalist Civic Platform/Civic Coalition (PO/KO) founded by neoliberal EU Council President Donald Tusk by a comfortable margin.

UK: Climate’s “Extinction Rebellion” And the Child Stalking Horse

Just when you thought it was safe to travel into London again without getting caught up in the mayhem of yet another protest, climate change activists have organised a whole two weeks of it, which kicked off on October 7.

“Extinction Rebellion UK” appears to be a rag-tag collective of millennial and post-middle-aged eco-warriors, with three attributes in common — conservation, the love of the sound of their own voices, and having not enough to do with their time.

UK: Pro-EU Corbyn Praises EU Arrest Warrant He Used to Oppose

Far-left Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn used his response to the Queen’s Speech in the House of Commons to praise the European Arrest Warrant (EAW) he once fiercely opposed, particularly when it was used against Julian Assange.

Mr Corbyn claimed that the European Arrest Warrant — really an EU-wide extradition treaty, which requires EU member-states to hand over suspects wanted in other EU member-states with little need for them to prove to domestic courts that there is satisfactory case against them — was an important tool for protecting public safety which could be lost after Brexit.

“The EU pays Turkey €3 billion every year for the so-called Refugee Pact, while Recep Tayyip Erdogan still sends thousands of illegal migrants to the Greek isles and threatens to swamp Europe with even more. In addition, the EU will pay Turkey €9 billion between 2007 and 2020 for an EU accession nobody wants, while Turkey turns away ever more from the Western community and values,” Bystron said.

Zakir Naik Speeches Inspired Majority of 127 People Arrested for ISIS Links

Most of the 130-odd people arrested by security agencies in India for suspected ISIS links were inspired by the speeches of controversial Islamic preacher Zakir Naik, a top official of the National Investigation Agency Alok Mittal told a conference of anti-terror teams on Monday.

Mittal said security agencies had arrested 127 people from different parts of the country in recent years due to ISIS links. The largest number of people were arrested from Tamil Nadu, 33, Uttar Pradesh, 19 and Kerala, 17, Telangana 14, Maharashtra 12, Karnataka 8 and Delhi 7.

    Did you know that the desecration of state symbols, including the National Anthem of the Russian Federation, is subject to prosecution only if it happened on the territory of the Russian Federation. so these trumpeters are beyond jurisdiction)))

  2. Of the Facebook group led by Valentina Chupik, a migrant “human rights activist” and UN grant recipient. https://www.facebook.com/groups/836357869854835/permalink/1426811717476111/
    ================
    Valentina Chupik:
    The Kazakh and Chinese military have reached an unprecedented level of migrantophobia. Imagine, they arranged the exercises, according to the scenario of which they accuse LABOR MIGRANTS of TERRORISM and plan AIRLANDS on them!
    “The exercises consist of two stages. Each unit is given three days to complete. According to the scenario, illegal armed formations ACCIDATED THE COUNTRY UNDER THE COVER OF LABOR MIGRANTS. They CARRY OUT PROVOCATIONAL ACTIONS and DIVERSIONS. To prevent further complications of the situation, a decision was made to conduct a special operation liquidation of a conditional adversary’s unit, ”the press release of the Kazakh Defense Ministry said in a press release.
    The first – the preparatory stage includes the formation of a combined tactical detachment and the march-throw to the area of ​​the joint operation.
    The second stage of the exercises involves night reconnaissance, and then an AERIAL SHOCK on the basis of a conditional enemy. Aerial reconnaissance will be carried out using unmanned aerial vehicles. ”
    ——————
    Marina Popova:
     This is a study of a hypothetical situation when ILLEGAL ARMED FORMATIONS penetrated a country that was MADE by labor migrants. And not the accusation of labor migrants in terrorism! Absolutely different accents! And the action to destroy ILLEGAL ARMED FORMATIONS is absolutely lawfully and fairly included in the exercise plan. No need to look for a black cat in a dark room, especially if she is not there

    Valentina Chupik;
     Marina Popova, why didn’t illegal armed groups penetrate under the guise of police officers? or mixed martial arts fighters? or presidential administration staff? Experience shows that the environment of these groups gives far more members of illegal armed groups than the environment of labor migrants.

    Marina Popova:
    Marina Popova Valentina Chupik I am not an expert in illegal entry into neighboring territory) But it seems to me that in such a situation it is easier for terrorists to penetrate into a neighboring state in the form of labor migrants, according to legend. Because athletes or administration officials do not cross the border into China and Kazakhstan.

    Valentina Chupik:
    Marina Popova, you suffer the same migrant-phobia as the authors of the “scenario” of air strikes on labor migrants

    Valentina Chupik:
     It is a way of promoting migrantophobia and promoting violence against migrants. Goebbels propaganda, colloquially

    Of course of course. The last explosions in the subway were carried out by a migrant cook.
    Every week, ISIS recruiters and financiers are detained – also most often “labor” migrants.

    • “The Kazakh and Chinese military have reached an unprecedented level of migrantophobia.”

      Thank you for your contributions from Russia, Elena, Now I can understand why the Chinese would worry about labour migrant terror, but I thought that Kazakhs are migrants themselves to Russia?(Western presstitutes are happy to smear any ethnic Russian resistance as racist, Nazi, etc.

      Which it may be at times, but young single male labourers have always had a higher crime rate all through history, e.g. the Greek army had to patrol Athens due to crimes of imported Greek construction labour 150 years ago when Athens was expanding.

      So is the Kazakh government faced with inward labour migrants from other countries under Islamic influence which also send migrants to China, so that there is a common interest on the part of the 2 armies/governments?

  3. “Kurt Eichenwald Posts 1983 Image of Child Earthquake Victims to Bash Trump Over Syria Pullout” scum like him do it because they know the leftist sheep won’t care if the photo is real or not, they will still believe it, and he knows there won’t be any consequences for lying. That’s how deep America has sunk in just a few years now…

  4. “Pakistan. It’s not exactly on every solo female traveler’s bucket list. But that doesn’t mean that it shouldn’t be,” states the article, which serves as promotional material for Vlogger Eva zu Beck, who made a video asserting that Pakistan “could be the world’s #1 tourism destination.”
    Ah yes, in 2013 we had two young women who had the same bright idea, ended up getting kidnapped and eventually, two years later, our state had to pay a juicy amount (6 mil.$) to have them released (though officially they still mud the water). Which I don’t understand to this day. They willingly underwent a high risk trip and should’ve faced the consequences. And you can really see how they’ve been indoctrinated on the released footage. They are muslim now. One of them aparently works with children, begs the question if she’s indoctrinating them too. The other aparently had some problems with the law, when she was arrested in Turkey. One claim was that she wanted to go back to her kidnappers, the other that she was just going for vacation with her family. Both refuse to give any interviews.
    The other story that comes to mind are those globalist cyclists that ended up being slashed on a remote road somewhere around that region.
