Brooklyn: Man Arrested for Egging Synagogue Turns Out Not to be a White Supremacist

The New York Post reported Thursday that “a teenager who threw an egg at a Brooklyn synagogue and chucked another one at a woman in Borough Park has been arrested on a number of hate crime charges, police said.”

This took place in a neighborhood where many Orthodox Jews live. The young activist’s name turns out to be Mohib Hoque, and he was “hit with three counts of hate crime assault, three counts of hate crime aggravated harassment, three counts of hate crime harassment and hate crime reckless endangerment.”

Mohib Hoque. A white supremacist, perhaps? An avid consumer of “far-right” news analysis?

CNN Whistleblower: Liberal Media’s Charlottesville Hoax Was My ‘Red Pill’Moment (Video)

Cary Poarch, the former satellite uplink technician at CNN’s Washington, D.C. bureau who secretly recorded hundreds of hours of undercover footage exposing the vehement, anti-Trump bias of the network’s executives, says CNN’s effort to smear the president as racist ushered in a life-altering “red pill” moment of extraordinary clarity.

“There was multiple little — I call them grains of rice — that led to the tipping of the scale,” Poarch explained in an exclusive interview with The Gateway Pundit.

“‘Let’s cover the story in this light, this way or that way, to cast the president or Republicans in a certain light,’“ Poarch said, describing CNN President Jeff Zucker’s routine of directing his staff to bombard viewers with propaganda. “I thought that was obviously kind of weird because I always like to pride myself as a seeker of truth — whatever the facts are, let’s get them out and go from there.”

“Even though I didn’t like the president,” he continued. “I just thought that was kind of weird that a major media company would be trying to tip the scale. That kept my antenna up.”

Denver Business Owner Fined for Not Cleaning Up Vagrant Poo and Used Needles

The city of Denver fined a local business owner after he and his staff refused to continue cleaning up after homeless people behind his building, according to CBS Denver.

“There’s food, trash, drug deals,” said Jawaid Bayzar, who added “In the alley we get, ya know, the defacation, drug needles, prostitution” behind his internet company, Forethought.net. One night an employee was sitting in his car when someone smashed the window and tried to stab him, according to Bayzar.

And when Bayzar and his crew stopped cleaning up the constant hazardous mess left by the vagrants, telling CBS he’s not equipped to deal with it, Denver fined him.

Gun From Chicago Buy-Back Program Found Near Dead Gang Member in Police Shooting

Chicago, Illinois— According to an AGG report, William Stewart Boyd traded his father’s old .38 caliber Smith & Wesson snub nose for less than $100 in a gun buyback in 2004. It was supposed to be destroyed, but somehow the same handgun with serial number J515268 was found next to a dead body involved in a police shooting eight years later.

Boyd, a judge in Cook County, had taken the handgun to a South Side church in Chicago, Illinois where he handed it over to a pair of plainclothes officers with badges on their belts.

It’s Trump vs the Deep State vs the Rest of Us

One of the best side effects of the Trump presidency has been the hostility of the so-called “deep state” or “intelligence community” directed at the president.

This, in turn, has led many Americans to realize that America’s powerful, un-elected secret police agencies serve an agenda all their own. Consequently, polls show one’s views of the CIA and the FBI depend largely on one’s ideological bent. Polls from Fox News and NBC news in recent years show that as various government bureaucracies have ratcheted up their hostility to Trump, more Democrats and Hillary Clinton voters have said they trust the CIA and the FBI.

Pew: Religious Americans Distrust Clergy Advice on Climate Change

Americans who go to church think the clergy can be very helpful in providing guidance on growing closer to God, but distrust their advice on issues such as climate change, the Pew Research Center reveals in a new study.

A full 68 percent of U.S. adults who attend religious services at least a few times a year say they have “a lot” of confidence in the advice of their clergy on growing closer to God, yet just a small fraction of this number (13 percent) say they have this confidence when the topic is climate change, Pew found.

Why the World Needs a Google Detox

In this interview, Google whistleblower Zach Vorhies, who worked as a senior software engineer at Google and YouTube for over eight years, shares his inside knowledge of this global monopoly, revealing why Google is not a reliable source of information anymore.

Google’s monopoly over search is matched by a continued reassurance that it is an unbiased search platform. Google is actively suppressing and censoring information, proving it is anything but unbiased.

While some of the information revealed is related to politics, you can read about my views about the two-party U.S. federal government here.

The point of sharing this information is that Google is manipulating search results to reflect its views, and to influence our social behavior while denying this is happening…

Using Google’s internal search engine, Vorhies set out to determine what Google’s definition of fake news was. He found several examples in a presentation. However, in it were actual, verifiably real news events. “I went, ‘Wait a minute. Is this about fake news or is this about controlling the narrative for like political purposes?’“ Vorhies says.

He began collecting these documents because he knew they were explosive enough that Google would remove them if word ever got out about them. In his continued search for real news presented as fake, he started unearthing other disturbing projects…

What this manipulation ultimately ends up doing is presenting a twisted and false view of the world. What you’re seeing in your search results is what the AI algorithm decided is most fair — not what’s actually happening in the real world.

This is how you now end up getting automated search suggestions such as “men can have periods” and “men can have babies,” even though these are biological impossibilities. However, the algorithm deems the idea that only women can menstruate and bear children as “unfair” and basically “sexist,” and thus it’s pushing these ridiculous search suggestions to the top.

This obnoxious discrepancy is clear when using search terms like “men can …” The manipulation of reality will not be as transparent when using health or political search words, when you cannot be absolutely sure, ahead of time, about what the absolute truth is.

Delingpole: Climategate 10 Years on — The Bastards Got Away With It!

Climategate was the biggest scandal in the history of climate science. Modesty forbids me from identifying the guy who broke the story in the mainstream media — ten years ago this month — took it viral on the internet and brought it to worldwide prominence.

Sorry, but I refuse to name the handsome, brave, witty, intelligent, funny, clever, spectacularly endowed, bravura writer, beloved parent, adored husband, and skilled horseman responsible for this veritable Scoop of the Century, if not the Millennium.

No, absolutely not. Only from my cold, dead hands will you ever prise this secret information. Unless, maybe, you twist my arm just a tiny bit more and —

Yeah, all right. I admit it. That godlike hero was me.

Of course, if you believe the mainstream media, Climategate was little more than a fake news story concocted by a small cabal of wicked deniers in order to discredit the noble cause of climate science.

This is a lie and a particularly dangerous lie at that. If we allow it to prevail then the bad guys will have won, as they are close to doing already…

DUBAI, United Arab Emirates — Iran’s supreme leader on Sunday cautiously backed the government’s decision to raise gasoline prices by 50% after days of widespread protests, calling those who attacked public property during demonstrations “thugs” and signaling that a potential crackdown loomed.

The government shut down internet access across the nation of 80 million people to staunch demonstrations that took place in a reported 100 cities and towns. That made it increasingly difficult to gauge whether unrest continued. Images published by state and semiofficial media showed the scale of the damage in images of burned gas stations and banks, torched vehicles and roadways littered with debris.

The “Great Pleasure in Destroying Christians”: The Persecution of Christians, September 2019

Canada’s Immigration and Refugee Board sought to deport a refugee family — a mother and three children — that had fled their native country of Nigeria after they were attacked and threatened with death for leaving Islam and converting to Christianity… “They face a ‘fatwa’ (a pronouncement of death) against them for converting to Christianity from Islam. They believe they face certain death if they are returned to Nigeria. They are quite fearful.” … Supporters of the family said the government was not taking the time to establish the family’s humanitarian status or perform a proper risk assessment. “They’re trying to boot [them] out of the country before then.” The family’s current status is unclear.

  1. Stockholm Syndrome: A condition which causes hostages to develop a psychological alliance with their captors during captivity.

    Malmo Syndrome: When a native population develops a psychological cuckholding to an aggressive and hostile immigrant population.

    Oh, and Jeffrey Epstein didn’t kill himself.

    • You are right.

      But did you heard about the Toxoplasmose parasites?
      Cats had it mostly,when Rats are infected they had no more fear for cats!!!

      Experts say this works perhaps also with Human Brains.

  2. Pope Francis is an idiot. I have no respect for him at all, nor any for that queer pack of hypocritical pedophiles calling itself the Roman Catholic Church. Lose the communist pope and allow your clergymen to marry and raise families! Isn’t it already in the catechism that not marrying and raising kids is a sin? Practice what you preach!

    Speaking of religion, that’s why the Canadian commies are discarding that Nigerian lady and her kids. Everyone knows how much communists detest Christianity. If you want to survive in a communist [sump], you have to be willing to tell the idiots in charge whatever they want to hear. Tut-tut me all you want, but your high horse won’t save that lady and her kids from being skinned alive in Nigeria.
