Andy Ngo Donors Have Names Released, Doxxed by Antifa Radicals

The names of numerous donors to journalist Andy Ngo’s GoFundMe have been released by antifa activists on Twitter, doxxing the names of those donating to the journalist’s medical funds.

Ngo is one of America’s foremost hoax specialists, consistently debunking false claims and stories such as the Jussie Smollett fiasco.

The doxxing was done on the belief that Andy Ngo faked a brain hemorrhage after being subjected to a public beating on June 29 at an Antifa protest in Ngo’s hometown of Portland.

If Impeachment Fails, Will the Elite Crash the Economy in Order to Prevent Four More Years of Trump?

By now, it is exceedingly obvious that the global elite absolutely hate Donald Trump. No president in U.S. history has faced such a relentless assault by the corporate media, and there have been attempts to sabotage his presidency at every turn. Miraculously, Trump has survived all of these attacks so far, but now the specter of impeachment looms large over his administration.

The Democrats have a solid majority in the U.S. House of Representatives, they are working quickly toward drafting articles of impeachment, and they actually hope to have Trump impeached by Christmas Day. But in order to have Trump removed from office, 67 votes will be needed in the Senate, and right now Democrats only control 47 of those seats. It was always going to be tough for Democrats to get 20 Republicans in the Senate to turn on Trump, but they have bungled this process so badly that they might not end up getting any at all.

That scenario will become even more likely if House Republicans stand solidly united behind Trump, and at this point, even the Washington Post is admitting that there is a possibility “that not a single House Republican” will vote for the articles of impeachment…

Marg Helgenberger, Robert Kennedy Jr. Arrested in Latest Jane Fonda-Led Climate Protest

As much of the media attention on Capitol Hill was focused on the latest impeachment hearing, Jane Fonda was continuing a weekly climate protest.

She was not arrested, but other activists were after they staged a sit-in at the Russell Senate Office Building. Those arrested included actress Marg Helgenberger and activist Robert Kennedy Jr., as well as June Diane Raphael, who portrays Fonda’s daughter on the Netflix series Grace and Frankie. Demonstrators have typically been charged with obstructing and incommoding, and cited and released.

Roger Stone Found Guilty on All Counts in Trial Stemming From Mueller Probe

Trump confidant and GOP operative Roger Stone was found guilty on all seven counts of obstruction, witness tampering and making false statements to Congress in Washington, D.C., federal court on Friday, after a weeklong trial on charges that stemmed from former Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s Russia investigation.

Stone was charged with providing false statements to the House Intelligence Committee about communications having to do with WikiLeaks, obstructing a congressional investigation of Russian interference during the 2016 presidential election, and witness tampering.

Roger Stone Fears He’s Going to be ‘Epsteined’ In Jail

The former Trump confidant was found guilty today of all 7 counts against him, including witness tampering and making false statements.

Stone’s supporters assert that the charges were just another aspect of the witch hunt conducted by the deep state against Trump and his allies as part of a coup to overthrow the president.

Seattle’s Course: Harder Left

Three weeks before the elections for Seattle city council, moderate candidates appeared to be poised for victory. An opinion poll from the Seattle Metropolitan Chamber of Commerce showed widespread discontent with the existing council. Voters in every district told pollsters that Seattle was on the “wrong track,” and they expressed an unfavorable opinion of city leadership. According to the conventional wisdom, this would be a “change election” that pitted a slate of moderate, business-backed candidates against progressives and socialists who promised to revive the failed “Amazon tax” and to impose rent control, legalize homeless camping, and even abolish the Seattle Police Department. The business community, united with moderate Democrats, neighborhood groups, and public-safety unions, appeared successfully to have framed the election as a choice between a “dangerous, divisive status quo” and a “return to responsible government.”

But just as ballots were going out, Amazon, believing that victory was within reach, made the mistake of contributing another $1 million to the Chamber’s political action committee—and the entire narrative collapsed.

Trump Hater Tom Arnold’s Veiled Threat: Roger Stone “Died in Prison”

Trump hating actor Tom Arnold launched another bizarre Twitter outburst when he appeared to wish for Roger Stone’s death by suggesting the former Trump confidant would end up like Jeffrey Epstein.

Stone was convicted on 7 counts in his federal trial today and faces a jail sentence of up to 50 years.

Journalists who spoke to Stone in recent days says he fears being ‘Epsteined’ in jail, a reference to the “suicide” of the billionaire sex trafficker which many people think was a deliberate assassination.

In response to Mike Cernovich, who tweeted, “Roger Stone was prosecuted more aggressively than Jeffrey Epstein, that tells you all you need to know about the rule of law in America,” Arnold responded, “Roger Stone & Jeffery Epstein were very close to Donald Trump. Then they died in prison. Who’s next Pizzagate?”

Twitter Has Suspended Several Accounts That Tweeted “I Hired Donald Trump to Fire People Like Yovanovitch”

The phrase “I hired Donald Trump to fire people like Yovanovitch” trended on Twitter on Friday morning as Marie Yovanovitch, former US ambassador to Ukraine, testified in front of the impeachment inquiry held by the House Intelligence Committee. And while it may have seemed like a spontaneous outcry from the president’s supporters, the phrase has spread at a rate consistent with the coordinated inauthentic behavior expected from a network of bots or sock puppet accounts.

To be sure, many human users are sharing the phrase, including Donald Trump Jr., who tweeted a version of the phrase an hour after the first tweet surfaced: “America hired @realDonaldTrump to fire people like the first three witnesses we’ve seen. Career government bureaucrats and nothing more.”

Watch: Epic Brawl at Popeye’s Drive-Thru Ends in Arrests and No One Getting Their Chicken Sandwiches

The buzz about Popeye’s new chicken sandwich has officially gone viral — and its internet popularity is translating into a full on free-for-all at various Popeye’s locations across the U.S. as obese fast food customers have come to fisticuffs at various locations, arguing about who will have access to the coveted sandwiches and in what order, of which there has been a limited supply.

“Popeyes struck when the chicken sandwich iron was hot. But it also used the most visible player in the game to generate its own noise,” QSR Magazine said, referring to the chain’s ongoing Twitter feud with sandwich rivals Chik-Fil-A.

It’s a marketing strategy straight out of the movie Idiocracy — and it’s working.

White House Releases Transcript of April Ukraine Call, Shows No Pre-Conditions for Meeting

The White House has released a transcript of the April 21 call between President Trump and then-Ukrainian President-elect Volodymyr Zelensky.

“When you’re settled in and ready, I’d like to invite you to the White House. We’ll have a lot of things to talk about, but we’re with you all the way,” Trump said during the call, without making any pre-conditions for the White House meeting. Testimony from the Democrats’ witnesses have suggested that a White House meeting was predicated on Zelensky making a public anti-corruption statement, which many saw as part of the so-called quid pro quo.

France: An “Inverted Colonization”

On October 12, 2019, a meeting of the Regional Council of Bourgogne-Franche-Comté was held in Dijon, a quiet town in central France. A woman wearing a long black veil was in the audience, apparently accompanying a group of students. All at once, the head of the National Rally party group at the Regional Council, Julien Odoul, rose and said that the presence of a woman wearing an Islamic headscarf in a public building was incompatible with the values of the French Republic:

“We are in a public building, we are in a democratic enclosure. Madame has all the time to keep her veil at home, in the street, but not here, not today. It’s the Republic, it’s secularism. It’s the law of the Republic, no ostentatious signs.”

Greta Getting Flak for Taking ‘Plastic Yacht’ Back to Europe

“Greta sets sail on new plastic yacht,” said the free-market Committee for a Constructive Tomorrow in a post.

The catamaran, the Outremer 45, has four solar panels that produce about 130 amps per day, according to a January video on the couple’s Sailing La Vagabonde channel on YouTube.

Labour’s takeover by a radically left-wing, London-centric hardline faction fronted by party leader Jeremy Corbyn appears to have had the opposite to intended effect as the key demographic the party has been able to rely upon in election after election for 90 years increasingly give their trust to Boris Johnson’s Conservatives instead.

Globalist Magazine ‘The Economist’ Tells Plebs to Eat Bugs

Globalist magazine ‘The Economist’ published an article encouraging people to live on a diet of bugs like citizens in the conflict-torn Congo in order to save the planet.

Entitled ‘Why eating bugs is so popular in Congo’, the piece champions the consumption of caterpillars, crickets and grasshoppers as being “richer in protein than beef or fish.”

“Others around the world should catch up,” writes the unnamed author. “Bug farming takes up less land, requires less food and does less damage to the environment than meat or fish farming.”

“Hunting insects is easy, too. Anyone can wander into the forest—or, indeed, to the airport—and gather caterpillars, ants and grasshoppers,” he adds before admitting that “The wrong variety of insect can poison consumers.”

Chile’s Stock Market Jumps on Plans to Dump Dictatorship-Era Constitution

SANTIAGO (Reuters) — Chile’s stock exchange posted its biggest daily gain in 11 years after lawmakers agreed on Friday to hold a referendum on replacing the country’s dictatorship-era constitution, bowing to protesters furious over inequality and social injustice.

The deal, struck in the early hours of the morning, also boosted the Chilean peso following its slide earlier this week to a historic low that prompted concerns of a recession.

Protests have raged for a month in the South American nation, once the region’s most stable economy. Riots, arson and looting have paralyzed Santiago, a city of 6 million, crippling its bus and metro system. The unrest has wrought billions in damages to both private business and public infrastructure. More than 20 people have died in the chaos.

      If you don’t surrender your nation, banks, curricula, power, Then it is not democracy.

      BOris bin Johnson, the descendant of the Ottomans, will continue inviting invaders. If he doesn’t there is always someone else who invites colonizers and will be elected.

      Every policy and the west, every step taken, any decision, and caucus, and forum or discussion, anything opened or closed in the west must be done with interest and sensitivities of muslims in mind or it will not fly.

      Everything is designed or labelled according to islam taste and stan dards or they are wrong.

      European Union was created for a noble goal: to prevent europeans from slaughtering themselves by themselves. No EU has designed a plan to be slaughted by those who are poised to wipe out israel

      By the way, Iran and indonesia do not have any border disputes : why do they inveterately hate Israel?

      Ok western lame, muslim driven “democracies” continue with your
      madness and see what will happen :

      Now we are all israel: besieged like israel.

      In the Middle Ages people hated the plague. Today we are clapping the arrival of the plague.

      Is this the New Stage of Renaissance.

      Or is this the anti- renaissance. Anti reason, aniti common sense..

      or psychonomy.

      The first time in the history of the miserable earth and humanity that happens to be ruled by one single aggressive ideology, namely … you guessed it.

  1. “Mr. Johnson declined to promise to reduce the current high level of immigration into the UK.”

    So out he goes. Like Cameron and May.

    • I’ve recently developed the crazy belief that the political leaders of all of the elective dictatorships, and the movers and shakers of the news media, are under the mind control of malevolent extraterrestrials.

      There exists no evidence of rational thinking on the subject of immigration by the rulers of any of those polities. There’s nothing the powerless people of these polities can do to stop this farce from progressing towards its blindingly predictable and very bloody conclusion.

  2. How dare anyone criticize Saint Greta. When she is führerette there will be a price to pay for such blasphemy. Forward!

    Re: “There’s nothing the powerless people of these polities can do to stop this farce from progressing towards its blindingly predictable and very bloody conclusion.”

    The besieged peoples of nations like Sweden, Germany, France and the U.K. have been brainwashed by the ruling class to believe themselves to be powerless; that is a very different thing than actually being powerless.

    The globalists at the EU and elsewhere – Macron, Merkel, May, Juncker, et al. – are relatively few in number, and so have become out of necessity masters of propaganda, divide-and-conquer tactics and other such methods in order to create docile populations cowed into silence and inaction by political correctness.

    However, there is a fatal weakness at the heart of any regime built upon lies – as this one most-certainly is – namely, that even a single person who knows the truth and is determined to spread it, can undermine and ultimately topple an unjust order.

    Told again and again by state-approved propaganda and disinformatzia that the Muslims and other “migrants” in their midst are no threat, these lies are beginning to wear thin as ordinary Europeans see through them as the untruths they are.

    Once the ruse has been uncovered and is openly known for being a lie, at that time, these “powerless” people will again be heard from – and probably in ways that traitorous European elites will not like.

    In short, the European “silent majority” has not yet been heard from, only their globalist opposition. The fact that the former have not yet been heard from does not prove that they will always remain silent or inactive. Reality always gets a vote – always.
