Gates of Vienna News Feed 12/15/2019

Three Italian senators for the 5-Star Movement (M5S), which is part of the governing coalition, have defected to the Lega, the party of former Interior Minister Matteo Salvini. The three senators are said to be unhappy with their party’s position on the European Stability Mechanism (ESM).

In other news, Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn says he is proud of his party’s performance after its record-breaking loss in Thursday’s general election in the UK.

Hundreds of Billions in Gold and Cash Are Quietly Disappearing

Something strange is going on: at the same time that central banks are injecting $100 billion each month in electronic money to crush volatility and ramp markets, a similar amount in hard physical currency and precious metals is literally disappearing.

Take gold: as we reported last week, it was none other than Goldman Sachs which recently laid out the case for gold, saying “gold’s strategic case still strong.” One reason for this is that the same central banks that are “full tilt” printing cash, they have also been splurging on gold, and as a result of “geopolitical uncertainty” there has been a record surge in gold demand by central banks themselves. As Goldman notes, “CBs globally have been buying gold at a very strong pace” and “2019 looks to be a record year for CB gold purchases with our target of 750 tonnes combined purchases likely to be met.”

Peter Schiff: Inflation Tsunami Will SLAM the U.S.

According to Peter Schiff, chief executive officer and president of the Westport, Connecticut-based Euro Pacific Capital, an inflation tsunami will slam into the United States. The Federal Reserve’s easy money policies are going to bring the inflation boogeyman back to America with a vengeance.

Costs are already rising and wages have not kept up with the spending of the average American. But it will get much worse according to Schiff’s predictions. “The reason the Fed had to start cutting rates was because last year the air really started to come out of that bubble,” Schiff told FOX Business’ Liz Claman on Wednesday. “So the Fed had to blow some air back in so this is not a strong economy, it’s never been a strong economy. The whole thing is an illusion.”

Schiff, who accurately predicted the subprime mortgage crisis of a decade ago, which lead to the Great Recession, has been warning of glaring problems in the U.S. economy ever since. “We are going to be hit with a tsunami of inflation in this country,” Schiff said, adding that he sees the U.S. spiraling into an “inflationary depression.”

Anti-Impeachment Protesters, Rep. Adam Schiff Clash at Glendale Event Celebrating Passage of Armenian Genocide Bill

GLENDALE, Calif. (KABC) — A heated confrontation erupted Saturday when anti-impeachment protesters disrupted an event in Glendale featuring Congressman Adam Schiff.

Rep. Schiff was speaking at a town hall celebrating the recent passage of a bipartisan bill he co-authored recognizing mass killings of Armenians by Ottoman Turks a century ago as genocide.

Shortly after he took the podium, a group of protesters started shouting and calling him a liar. Schiff shared his thoughts on the latest developments in the impeachment proceedings againt President Trump.

Organizers of the event tried to calm them down but police eventually removed the demonstrators from the room. No arrests were made.

Bloomberg Vows to Shut Down All Coal-Power Plants, Kill New Gas Facilities

Democratic presidential candidate Mike Bloomberg on Friday unveiled his climate change plan, which includes shutting every coal plant in America and stopping the construction of any new natural gas plants.

“We have to start working as hard as we can building a 100 percent clean energy economy because the alternative is just too bad for all of us,” the former New York City mayor said during a speech in Alexandria, Virginia, according to his website. “As president, I will accelerate America’s transition to a zero-carbon economy.”

“First, I will push for an 80 percent reduction in electricity emissions by the year 2028, and 100 percent clean electricity shortly thereafter,” he said. “To get it done, we’ll replace all U.S. coal plants with clean energy. We’ll also replace existing gas plants and we’ll stop the construction of new gas plants. “

Democrat Rep. Van Drew Burns Pelosi, Switches Parties to GOP — After Meeting With President Donald Trump

Rep. Jeff Van Drew, a moderate Democrat who is strongly opposed to impeaching President Donald Trump, is expected to switch parties and become a Republican, according to multiple sources familiar with the situation.

Van Drew is one of two Democrats who voted against opening the impeachment inquiry into Trump and has remained against the effort, even as the House prepares to vote to impeach the president next week. Van Drew’s decision comes after a meeting with Trump on Friday.

Glenn Greenwald Blasts U.S. Media Over Perpetuation of the ‘SpyGate’ Hoax, Calling it ‘Scandal of Historic Magnitude’

Journalist Glenn Greenwald is a liberal who is no particular fan of President Donald Trump or Republicans, but he does not allow that to cloud his judgment when it comes to fair and unbiased reporting.

In fact, since Trump won office, Greenwald has steadfastly refused to join the stampede of other journalists seeking to promote one lie after another about the president, personally, and his administration.

In a recent piece, Greenwald — founder of The Intercept — blasted his colleagues in the American media for the perpetuation of a massive lie that he believes constitutes a “scandal of historic magnitude” for the damage these hacks have done to their reputations and to the field of journalism in general:

Hillary Clinton Looks Like an ‘Evil Potato’ After Latest Cosmetic Surgery

The beast has morphed again.

Daily Mail reports that last Thursday night, Dec. 12, 2019, Hillary Clinton, 72, “looked wonderfully youthful” and “radiant” with “a wrinkle-free complexion and plumped-up cheeks” as she joined Bill Clinton at the “Ain’t Too Proud: The Temptations Musical” on Broadway in New York.

Daily Mail quotes two plastic surgeons (“aesthetic experts”) on Hillary’s new face:

“If it had started to make her look weird, she would have stopped it immediately.”

Clearly, Hillary is now ignoring that rule because she is looking weird after this latest round of “cosmetic” procedures.

More than weird, she is the stuff of nightmares.

See for yourself (you are forewarned!).

It’s Not a Coup. It’s a Civil War.

At least since the 1960s, a faction of people have been looking for a chance to make our government conform to what they think it should be. This faction has identified itself in many ways, and its members always embrace Marxist ideals with a top-down government run by a few. A “law-based” government, on the other hand, would have a constitution to protect the rights of the minority from the “tyranny” of the majority. That is what the United States of America is: a law-based government founded on the belief that those working in government are employees of the people, and not that the people are subservient to them. And all decisions are to be based on our agreement to form such a government — that is, as spelled out in our Constitution.

When a group, no matter how large or small, decides it wants to step beyond the constitutional means for changing the government and change it to fit their own ideals of government, and superimpose those ideals on everybody else, we have a true conflict. If that conflict cannot be resolved to their satisfaction through the instrumentalities of the provisions to do so, and so they decide to overthrow it and replace it with their own views or ideas, we have a war. We have those circumstances playing out before our eyes (and ears).

James Comey Admits He Was Wrong for Defending FBI’s FISA Process After IG Report

Former FBI Director James Comey admitted fault following last week’s Justice Department Inspector General’s report that detailed at least 17 serious errors during the launch of the agency’s investigation into Trump’s campaign.

Comey had previously defended the FBI’s use of the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act (FISA) courts during the investigation, but Inspector General Michael Horowitz found that the FBI’s investigative team made errors and omissions when applying for a warrant to surveil Carter Page, a former Trump campaign aide. Horowitz, in a Senate hearing, criticized the “entire chain of command” at the FBI and Justice Department for their failures in handling the warrant. Comey was in charge of the FBI when the investigation was launched.

“He’s right, I was wrong,” Comey told “Fox News Sunday” about how the FBI used the FISA system, adding that “I was overconfident as director in our procedures.”

Mainstream Media Stopped Talking About the Steele Dossier. Here’s Why.

When then-candidate Donald Trump first started talking about the “fake news” media, I’ll admit I was skeptical. I knew mainstream media has been left-leaning for at least a couple of decades, but I never considered the possibility they would extend their bias into full-blown lies and propaganda. Unfortunately, I was absolutely incorrect. Even before he was the President of the United States and the subject of every attack possible from the media, he knew the reality (or lack of reality) the fake news media represented.

The Steele Dossier has been discredited numerous times over the last three years with the culmination of the debunking coming at the hands of Inspector General Michael Horowitz and the report on his investigation into how the FBI handled their Russia investigation 2016 and early 2017. In the report, the IG dropped the bombshell that not only was the dossier used as the basis for their FISA warrants, but they were aware it was inaccurate when they were using it. They even checked in with the subsources who contributed much of the information and they acknowledged there was nothing of substance. Yet, the FBI pretended like it was fully corroborated and the anti-Trump media echoed the same lies for three years.

That is, they echoed the lies until now. Suddenly, mentions of the dossier have disappeared from mainstream media reports. They’re pretending like it doesn’t exist and never existed in their Orwellian spin on the truth. Thankfully, we have videos like the one above that clearly demonstrates in just over two minutes how deranged the media has been in defending this ridiculous dossier.

National Guard Speaks Out After Democrat Lawmaker Suggests Using Troops to Enforce Gun Control

The Virginia National Guard is hedging on comments made by a Virginia Democrat that it could be used to enforce future gun control laws in the state.

Democratic Rep. Donald McEachin said using the Guard to enforce anti-gun laws was an option for Democratic Gov. Ralph Northam, according to the Washington Examiner.

“And ultimately, I’m not the governor, but the governor may have to nationalize the National Guard to enforce the law,” he said. “That’s his call, because I don’t know how serious these counties are and how severe the violations of law will be. But that’s obviously an option he has.”

That resulted in a Twitter statement from Maj. Gen. Timothy P. Williams, the Adjutant General of Virginia.

“We have received multiple questions regarding proposed legislation for the 2020 General Assembly session and the authority of the Governor of Virginia to employ the Virginia National Guard in a law enforcement role. We understand and respect the passion people feel for the U.S. Constitution and 2nd Amendment rights,” the statement said.

“We will not speculate about the possible use of the Virginia National Guard. I encourage everyone to be patient while we allow our elected officials to work through the legislative process. We have not received any requests from the Governor, or anyone on his staff, about serving in a law enforcement role related to any proposed legislation.”

The statement also warned National Guard members to exercise care in talking on this hot-button issue.

“I expect our Soldiers, Airmen and members of the Virginia Defense Force to be professional and respectful in their discussions about this subject. As private citizens, our personnel are free to express their opinions to their elected officials, but they should not engage in any political activity while in a uniformed status,” the statement said.

Officials Say Savage Beating of Pro-Trump Boy is Not a ‘Hate Crime’

Despite appalling video evidence, officials say the brutal pummeling of a young pro-Trump boy does not meet the criteria for a hate crime.

The savage beating spread like wildfire earlier this week as conservatives and even liberals were shocked by the ferocity of it. The clip can be seen here.

While the mother claims the brutality was over her son’s support of President Donald Trump, officials have only given those behind the attack a virtual slap on the wrist with misdemeanor charges.

Second Jeffrey Epstein Victim ‘Could Go Public With Claims She Slept With Prince Andrew in a Press Conference Next Month’

Prince Andrew could face fresh embarrassment in the Jeffrey Epstein saga next month if a second woman’s claims against him come to light.

Andrew already faces accusations of sleeping with a 17-year-old Virginia Roberts in 2001 — who has frequently spoken out on the matter.

But now a second alleged sex slave of Epstein is being probed by lawyers who are looking to speak out in January if her claims prove plausible.

A source told the Sun: ‘The claims will be thoroughly investigated. In January, if the lawyer believes her account to be credible and takes on the client, there will be a press conference.’

The woman claims she had sex with the Prince but did not accuse him of coercing her.

She has contacted lawyers for Epstein’s victims, who will investigate her claims during a phone call in the next few weeks.

The Duke of York has always denied any impropriety.

The Carter Page/Ukraine Lie That Kept on Lying — and Spying — For Mueller and the FBI

The FBI and Special Counsel Robert Mueller repeatedly kept alive a damning narrative that investigators knew to be false: namely, that a junior Trump campaign aide as a favor to the Kremlin had “gutted” an anti-Russia and pro-Ukraine plank in the Republican Party platform at the GOP’s 2016 convention.

Federal authorities used this claim to help secure spy warrants on the aide in question, Carter Page, suggesting to the court that he was “an agent of Russia” — even though investigators knew that Page was working for U.S., not Russian, intelligence, and that they had learned from witnesses, emails and other evidence that Page had no role in drafting the Ukraine platform plank.

The revelation is buried in the Justice Department watchdog’s just-released report on FISA surveillance abuses. RealClearInvestigations fleshed out this unreported story with footnotes from the Mueller report and exclusive interviews with Trump campaign officials who worked on the convention platform.

The Democrats Are Engaged in a Coup. What Do We Do About it?

The behavior of the Democrat party over the last decade has been that of an overt criminal enterprise.

Attempting to subvert the will of the people (as expressed through our electoral process) by creating impeachable offenses out of whole cloth is not merely a breach of decorum, a “mistake,” or “wrong-headed.” It’s sedition.

The behavior of the Democrat party over the last decade has been that of an overt criminal enterprise, using the power of government to shield themselves from prosecution while engaging in eye-popping levels of corruption.

The articles and charges put forward by the Democrats spring from a laughable pretext, requiring a willful suspension of rational thought to accept.

Presumably, those elected to office as Democrats are not so intellectually disabled as to be unable to see through the obvious charade, a reality that leaves only one other conclusion to explain their behavior: they are fully and knowingly engaged in this seditious scheme and intend to reap the benefits of absolute power should they succeed.

This is not the behavior of a political party. These are not the activities of a “loyal opposition,” but rather the acts of an organized revolutionary element attempting to overthrow our government.

It is my opinion that the Democrat party has rendered itself illegitimate in the extreme by not only crossing the line of illegality, but by obliterating it entirely.

Canadian Tundra Was Once Covered in Thick Forest

Dec. 13 (UPI) — Today, Canada’s Ellesmere and Axel Heiberg islands are treeless. The tundra’s grasses and shrubs rise no more than a foot or so off the oft-frozen ground.

New research suggests the island weren’t always quite so barren. Analysis of some 5,000 fossil samples from the Canadian Arctic — the largest such survey — showed Canada’s northernmost islands were once covered in rich temperate forest.

Delingpole: Rejoice! Rejoice! Britain Just Dodged the Marxist Bullet!

So Britain doesn’t, after all, want to be run by an antisemitic, terrorist-supporting Marxist and his gang of nasty, aggressive, intolerant, historically illiterate Social Justice Warriors who think the only problem with Communism is that it hasn’t been tried properly yet…

Who would have thought, eh?

Well, I did, for one. I’ve been calling a big Conservative win ever since this general election was announced: not because I’m Nostradamus but because it seemed to me that all the Tories’ stars were so obviously in alignment.

Unelectable Opposition led by crabby hard-left ideologue with very dodgy friends? Check.

Charismatic, entertaining, optimistic former Mayor of London, household name, with track record of winning elections? Check.

Massive public desire to Get Brexit Done? Check.

Tory party united behind a common goal? Check.

Voters — especially the working classes — just sick of rampant PC? Check.

Ruthlessly effective Tory election machine? Check.

But just because it was inevitable doesn’t stop it being an amazing result.

Maybe a Corbyn victory was never a likely possibility, but that wasn’t how it felt yesterday when all manner of polls and rumours were predicting all sorts of strange things and even the most unflappable among us began wondering whether the time had come to pack our bags for Costa Rica or Switzerland or frankly anywhere where John McDonnell wasn’t going to be Chancellor and Diane Abbot Home Secretary.

Had these people won, it really would have been curtains for Britain. (And the markets knew it: which is why sterling plummeted yesterday on rumours of that Labour stood a chance).

Germany: Train Company Claps Back at Greta Thunberg Over Floor Pic, Notes ‘First Class’ Seat

BERLIN — Climate activist Greta Thunberg and Germany’s national railway company created a tweetstorm Sunday after she posted a photo of herself sitting on the floor of a train surrounded by lots of bags.

The image has drawn plenty of comment online about the performance of German railways.

Thunberg posted the tweet late Saturday with the comment “traveling on overcrowded trains through Germany. And I’m finally on my way home!”

But German railway company Deutsche Bahn suggested that Thunberg may not have spent the whole time sitting on the floor. And the 16-year-old Swedish activist later sought to draw a line under the matter by tweeting that she eventually got a seat and that overcrowded trains are a good thing.

With 162 seats more in the House of Commons than their next closest rival, Labour, the Conservatives’ pro-Brexit stance has redrawn the political map. Labour lost 60 seats — gaining only one, in London.

As revealed by the BBC below, it’s the subtle changes in the shift in Labour Red to Conservative Blue that reveal how Boris Johnson managed to break apart the Red Wall in the North of England.

Hungary’s Prime Minister Viktor Orban: Europe’s Solitary Defender of Persecuted Christians

“There is an ongoing persecution of Christians. For months, we bishops have been denouncing what is happening in Burkina Faso” Bishop Kjustin Kientega recently said, “but nobody is listening to us.” “Evidently”, he concluded, “the West is more concerned with protecting its own interests”.

In a recent series of a transnational tragedies, 14 Christians were murdered in an attack on a church in Burkina Faso, 11 Christians were murdered in an attack on a bus in Kenya and seven Christians were murdered by Boko Haram in Cameroon. These three deadly attacks by Islamists in the same week give an idea of the intensity and frequency of global anti-Christian persecution.

In Europe, The Muslim Murder of Jews is a Mental Illness

Martin Colmans was selling furniture in the Albert Cuyp market in Amsterdam when he was stabbed in the thigh. His son, Sharon, ran out to help him and protect his mother and was stabbed in his back and chest. But he succeeded in preventing the stabber from getting to his mother, Orly.

Tarik Ghani, the Muslim man who stabbed him, ran a hookah shop in the market. The victim said that he noticed a sudden change in his attacker after he returned from the Middle East and was often seen, “reading the Koran.” “He stopped talking to us, shaved his head and prayed all the time. He also began giving us nasty looks.” Other vendors in the Cuyp market stated that Tarik hated Jews. There had been warnings that he might turn violent and attack someone. Those warnings were however disregarded.

Instead of sending him to prison, a Dutch judge sentenced Tarik to a year of psychiatric treatment. The Colmans had asked the judge to take his anti-Semitism into account, instead the judge accepted Tarik’s claim that he was mentally ill and had been hearing voices. There was no evidence for this claim.

“Many people who are psychotic read the Koran,” a psychiatrist explained.

Tarik hadn’t been obsessively reading the Koran before the attack because he was a terrorist, but because he was psychotic.

Around the same time as a Dutch court was exempting Tarik from responsibility for his anti-Semitic attack, a French court was giving Kobili Traore another pass for the brutal murder of Sarah Halimi.

Ireland: Three Arrests After Anti-Racism, Free Speech Protests in Dublin

Three people were arrested during rival demonstrations by anti-racism and free speech groups in Dublin on Saturday.

The arrests followed minor scuffles between the two protest groups which were then separated by a large force of gardai.

Two men and one woman were arrested. One of the males, a teenager, and the woman were questioned and then received an adult caution.

A second male in his forties has been charged with public order offences and is due to appear before court at a later date.

Several hundred people took part in the demonstrations outside Leinster House on Saturday afternoon.

One of the demonstrations was a protest against proposed new hate speech legislation and was organised by groups including the Irish Freedom Party and Yellow Vest Ireland.

Trades unions, faith groups and anti-racism organisations in turn organised a counter demonstration, the Solidarity Alliance against Racism and Fascism’s (SARF) rally.

Italy: Three Five Star Movement Senators Defect to Salvini’s League

Three Five Star Movement senators have defected to populist Matteo Salvini’s League as the leftist Five Star-Democratic Party government coalition continues to struggle.

The first senator to defect to the League (Lega) was Senator Ugo Grassi, who explained that he left the Five Star Movement (M5S) due to his severe disagreement with changing the European Union’s European Stability Mechanism (ESM), a move some have said could undermine Italy’s economy and sovereignty, Il Giornale reports.

Netherlands: Police Drag Environmental Protesters From Hall of Amsterdam Airport

AMSTERDAM (Reuters) — Dutch military police began forcibly removing a group of environmental protesters from the main hall of Amsterdam’s Schiphol airport on Saturday after they refused to leave.

Hundreds of protesters had arrived for a demonstration against “the big polluter” Schiphol organized by Greenpeace, which had been granted a permit to protest outside the building only. The group rejected that condition, saying citizens’ rights to peaceful protest should not be restricted.

Stockholmers Consume More Amphetamine Than Any Other European City

Residents living in Stockholm, Sweden consume more amphetamines than any other city in Europe, a new study has revealed.

A test of the city’s wastewater has determined that amphetamine use is more widespread in Stockholm than “all comparable European cities”, Swedish broadcaster SVT reports.

The test, which measured amphetamine levels in Stockholm’s wastewater, was carried out earlier this year in October and found an average of 675 milligrams of amphetamine per 1,000 inhabitants per day. This places Stockholm as the number one European city in terms of amphetamine consumption.

Sweden: Confronting Reality

Back in February and March 2017 BBC News ran a number of articles about Trump’s much vilified remarks about Sweden, including one with the headline, “Trump’s wrong, it’s ‘quiet and safe’ in Malmo.” One article in particular, “All eyes on Malmo but not because of Trump” painted an idyllic picture of the lives of expats in Malmö. It spoke, among others, about a young American woman working in Malmö, Susanna Lewis, in the following way:

“As a woman, she is also used to being prepared and watchful as she walks alone in other places, yet she does not feel afraid in Malmö city centre or its outer suburbs”.

The article went on to quote her: “I never have had that fear in Sweden. This is the safest place I’ve ever lived.” 8

Now, however, even the BBC appears to have discovered that Sweden suffers from serious problems. In November, the BBC published an article headlined, “Sweden’s 100 explosions this year: What’s going on?”…

One problem is that the Swedish state itself contributes indirectly to the spread of extremism. The Swedish Security Service (Säpo) has found that a “relatively large” number of organizations with links to violent extremism have been using Sweden’s state and municipal grant systems, which Säpo says could “contribute to radicalization and thus growth in extremist environments in Sweden.”

UK: Delingpole: If Boris Can’t Counter the Red Menace in Education, This is the Last Ever Conservative Government

My biggest disappointment with the British general election result is that it has denied us the exquisite pleasure of watching young Corbyn voters being reduced to eating their household pets.

Had Jeremy Corbyn’s Marxists won — as so many 18-24-year-old voters hoped — it would, of course, have been a disaster for Britain.

But at least it would have proved a salutary lesson to all those university-brainwashed kids who think the only problem with communism is that hasn’t been tried properly yet.

“Well we did warn you!” we could have said to Araminta in her tattered ‘ Boris’ t-shirt, as she tucked ruefully into her pony Che. “Now you know what fully automated luxury communism tastes like.”

This isn’t a joke, either.

Just have a look at this terrifying map of how the General Election result would have turned out based on the 18— to 24-year-old vote.

How the results of the GE would have looked if only 18-24 year olds voted.

If these kids had had their way, then the world’s fifth-largest economy would have been reduced within a few months to the status of Venezuela-style basket case, with private property confiscated, freedom of speech muzzled, taxes rocketing, Jews persecuted, terrorists appeased, national security surrendered…

What, then, can the Conservatives do to stop universities becoming madrassas for leftist revolutionaries?

Well for a start, as Andrew Roberts argues here, they could try ensuring that some of the top jobs in academe go to conservatives for a change.

Roberts asks:

Why do the masterships of so many colleges of Academe go to former Labour cabinet ministers and the ex-editors of Left-supporting newspapers and media enterprises?

Why indeed.

Why, for example, did the position of Master at Cambridge’s most illustrious college, Trinity, go to the achingly second-rate, drearily leftist Dame Sally Davies, formerly the hugely undistinguished, nanny-statist killjoy Chief Medical Officer?

Why is ex-Guardian editor Alan Rusbridger the head of Michael Gove’s old Oxford college?

Because these jobs only ever go these days to lefty-liberals — which means, unlike in the past, there are no “sound” Oxbridge colleges or universities to counter the effects of all the left-wing ones.

UK: Defiant Jeremy Corbyn Says He’s ‘Proud’ of Labour’s Disastrous Election Campaign

Jeremy Corbyn has doubled down on his support for Labour’s wildly left-wing policies despite the party’s spectacular election defeat.

The outgoing opposition leader grudgingly shouldered some personal responsibility for the catastrophic collapse in votes, but used two newspaper columns to pin the blame on Brexit and the media.

Labour suffered its worst performance at the polls since 1935 after Boris Johnson reduced the party’s Red Wall of traditionally northern strongholds to rubble.

While accepting the result was ‘desperately disappointing’, Mr Corbyn said he was ‘proud’ of the radical anti-rich and spending spree platform he stood on during the campaign.

Insisting his tax-hiking government blueprint was popular, he wrote in the Observer: ‘I am proud that on austerity, on corporate power, on inequality and on the climate emergency we have won the arguments and rewritten the terms of political debate.

‘But I regret that we did not succeed in converting that into a parliamentary majority for change.

Dozens Injured in Beirut Amid Anti-Government Protests

Dozens of Lebanese citizens were injured Sunday after anti-government protesters clashed with police in the nation’s capital.

Reuters reported that as many as 46 were treated for injuries after protesters reportedly threw fireworks and stones at police who used tear gas canisters and rubber bullets on anti-government demonstrators.

Protests have ground the nation to a halt for weeks over allegations of corruption that forced the country’s prime minister, Saad al-Hariri, to resign in October as his government faced anger directed at political elites and a devastating economic crisis.

Turkish Military Gets Drones With Machine Guns

The Turkish military is about to take delivery of a fleet of 55-lb. drones equipped with a machine gun and 200-rounds of ammunition.

Made by Ankara-based firm Asisguard, the ‘Songar’ drone can strike a 6” target at roughly 650 feet and has a range of 6.2 miles, and can operate in groups. A newer version is expected to be able to hit targets from over 1,300 miles away. Accoridng to Ayhan Sungar of Asisguard, a swarm of three Songar drones can be operated from a single remote control — with all three firing simultaneously at a target.

Held aloft by eight rotating blades, the drone uses a series of sensors, cameras and lasers to calculate distance, angle and wind speed — along with robotic arms that can help to deliver accurate fire on target with minimal recoil, according to New Scientist.

Hong Kong Mall Protests Flare With Leader Lam in Beijing

HONG KONG (Reuters) — Small groups of protesters gathered in shopping malls across Hong Kong on Sunday amid brief scuffles with riot police as attention turned to an upcoming meeting between Hong Kong’s leader and China’s president.

Hong Kong leader Carrie Lam is scheduled to meet Chinese leader Xi Jinping in Beijing on Monday and some observers say the visit could yield fresh directives including a possible cabinet reshuffle.

Lam, however, appeared to play that down before she left, saying the first task was to curb violence and restore order.

On Sunday in the peak shopping season ahead of Christmas, groups of masked protesters, clad in black, marched through several malls chanting slogans including “Fight for freedom” and “Return justice to us”.

Hongkongers Hold ‘Christmas’ Protests to Renew Their Demands

HONG KONG—The shouts of “five demands, not one less” reverted across Hong Kong on Dec. 15, as protesters pushed their six-month-old protests at a public square and multiple shopping malls.

On Sunday in peak shopping season ahead of Christmas, groups of protesters marched through several malls shouting slogans and urging people to boycott businesses that support the Hong Kong government or Beijing.

At night, several hundred protesters held a vigil to remember a demonstrator who fell to his death outside a shopping mall exactly six months ago, after unfurling a protest banner. …

A middle-aged woman surnamed Yang also said Hongkongers should be “mentally prepared for a long-term battle,” adding that she hoped foreign governments could pressure the Chinese regime on the Hong Kong issue. “I hope the international community can pay attention to Hong Kong,” she said.

Evening Tensions

Around 9 p.m., black-clad protesters appeared in the Mongkok neighborhood. Police arrived and raised the blue flag, urging people to leave. At around 10:30 p.m., riot police on Nathan Road fired pepper spray and made several arrests. At one point, officers surrounded a man in a white helmet and fired pepper spray at him, then beat him with batons. Typically, journalists or first-aid medics wear such helmets.

After 11 p.m., dozens of residents engaged in a standoff with police, who then fired multiple canisters of tear gas.

Another Ignored Genocide of Christians Plagues Burkina Faso

On Sunday, December 1, 2019, Islamic terrorists raided a Protestant Christian church in Burkina Faso during the service and massacred 14 worshippers. The pastor and several children were among those killed.

This is but the latest of many lethal attacks on the Christian minority of the small nation located in West Africa, a region better known for the persecution of Christians in Nigeria.

Discussing the situation in Burkina Faso — which is approximately 60% Muslim, 23% Christian, and 17% animist or other — the BBC reported that “Jihadist violence has flared in Burkina Faso since 2016… Fighters affiliated to al-Qaeda and the Islamic State group as well as the local Ansarul Islam [Champions of Islam] have been active in the region.”

However, while a total of 12 Islamic terror attacks were registered in 2016, nearly 160 were reported in just the first five months of 2019.

How Modern Psychology Destroyed Traditional Christian Morality

At first the West didn’t accept Freudism and even was formally opposed to it. But the “seeds” of the “plague” brought forth “shoots” as early as fifty years later; we are speaking of the so-called “sexual revolution”, a socio-cultural phenomenon in the Western world that entailed the reappraisal of traditional (family) values.

To understand its origins we should refer to Sigmund Freud’s theory of psychoanalysis, namely his method of treating patients with mental disorders. According to the theory, a patient has all the instruments for his cure—for this he can become a psychoanalyst himself.

Supposedly some members of the human community in return for “social good” develop neuroses as their desires, suppressed by the yoke of public morality, remain unsatisfied.

And here the question arises: What will a society, some members of which decide to disregard social and ethic norms for the sake of their “mental health” be like? A split in society becomes inevitable.

Luciferianism: A Secular Look at a Destructive Globalist Belief System

The vast majority of people have an intuitive relationship with good and evil. They feel anxiety when confronted with evil actions or thoughts, and they feel personal guilt when they know they have done something evil to other people. Some might call this a “moral compass”. I would refer to it as part of the soul or spirit.

In any case, there is a contingent of people in the world that do not have it — a small percentage of the population that is born without conscience, or that finds it easy to ignore conscience. We’ll get to those people in a moment, but first, we should probably define what evil is.

Evil is first and foremost any action that seeks to destroy, exploit or enslave in the name of personal gain or gratification. Unfortunately, evil actions are often misrepresented as advantageous for the group, thereby making them morally acceptable. The needs of the many supposedly outweigh the needs of the few, and thus evil is rationalized as a means to a “positive end” for the “greater good”.

In most cases, however, destructive actions do not end up serving the interests of the majority, and only end up giving more wealth and power to an elitist minority. This is not a coincidence…

I have written extensively on narcissistic sociopaths and the globalist establishment in numerous articles. I have also outlined how such people, contrary to popular belief, are not isolated from one another. They do in fact organize into groups for mutual gain.

There is an ideology or system of belief that argues for the exact opposite of what conscience tells us is “good”, and that system is Luciferianism. In fact, luciferianism appears to be the source influence for most existing destructive “isms” in our society today (including socialism and globalism). It is my theory that luciferianism is a religion or cult designed by sociopathic narcissists for the benefit of sociopathic narcissists.

It is sometimes difficult to identify the true “sacraments” behind luciferianism because, for one, luciferians refuse to admit that the system is a religion at all. They prefer to call it a philosophy or methodology, at least in public. The system also seems to encourage active disinformation in order to dissuade or mislead non-adherents. The historic term for this religious secrecy is “occultism”. I would call it “elitism”.

Who Are the Globalists and What Do They Want?

The argument on whether or not a globalist agenda “exists” is OVER. The liberty movement and the alternative media won that debate, and through our efforts, we have even forced the establishment into admitting the existence of some of their plans for a completely centralized global system managed by them. Now, the argument has changed. The mainstream doesn’t really deny anymore that the globalists exist; they talk about whether or not the globalist agenda is a good thing or a bad thing.

First, I would point out the sheer level of deception and disinformation used by the globalists over the past several decades. This deception is designed to maneuver the public towards accepting a one-world economy and eventually one-world governance. If you have to lie consistently to people about your ideology in order to get them to support it, then there must be something very wrong with your ideology.

Second, the establishment may be going public with their plans for globalization, but they aren’t being honest about the consequences for the average person. And, there are many misconceptions out there, even in the liberty movement, about what exactly these people want. So, we need to construct a list of globalist desires vs globalist lies in order to define who we are dealing with. These are the beliefs and arguments of your run-of-the-mill globalist:

Centralization

A globalist believes everything must be centralized, from finance to money to social access to production to the government. They argue that centralization makes the system “more fair” for everyone, but in reality, they desire a system in which they have total control over every aspect of life. Globalists, more than anything, want to dominate and micro-manage every detail of civilization and socially engineer humanity in the image they prefer.

Sustainability As Religion

Globalists often use the word “sustainability” in their white papers and agendas, from Agenda 21 to Agenda 2030. Environmentalism is the facade they employ to guilt the population into supporting global governance, among other things. As I noted in my recent article ‘Why Is The Elitist Establishment So Obsessed With Meat’, fake environmentalism and fraudulent global warming “science” is being exploited by globalists to demand control over everything from how much electricity you can use in your home, to how many children you can have, to how much our society is allowed to manufacture or produce, to what you are allowed to eat.

The so-called carbon pollution threat, perhaps the biggest scam in history, is a key component of the globalist agenda. As the globalist organization The Club Of Rome, a sub-institution attached to the United Nations, stated in their book ‘The First Global Revolution’:

“In searching for a common enemy against whom we can unite, we came up with the idea that pollution, the threat of global warming, water shortages, famine and the like, would fit the bill. In their totality and their interactions, these phenomena do constitute a common threat which must be confronted by everyone together. But in designating these dangers as the enemy, we fall into the trap, which we have already warned readers about, namely mistaking symptoms for causes. All these dangers are caused by human intervention in natural processes. and it is only through changed attitudes and behavior that they can be overcome. The real enemy then is humanity itself.”

In other words, by presenting human beings as a species as the great danger, the globalists hope to convince humanity to sublimate itself before the mother earth goddess and beg to be kept in line. And, as the self-designated “guardians” of the Earth, the elites become the high priests of the new religion of sustainability. They and they alone would determine who is a loyal servant and who is a heretic. Carbon pollution becomes the new “original sin”; everyone is a sinner against the Earth, for everyone breaths and uses resources, and we must all do our part to appease the Earth by sacrificing as much as possible, even ourselves.

The elites don’t believe in this farce, they created it. The sustainability cult is merely a weapon to be used to dominate mass psychology and make the populace more malleable.

8 thoughts on “Gates of Vienna News Feed 12/15/2019

  1. Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn is correct. His political appeal has become much more selective.

    And the chocolate rations went up from 20 grams / month to 10 grams /month.

  2. The teacher is Russian, but her surname is her husband, Armenian. It is difficult to call her Nazi. Чурка churka (chock) – despicable name for asians/
    ================

    “Life was broken because of some word “chock ”: the court refused to justify the teacher who ordered the migrant to learn Russian
    A labor veteran from the Novosibirsk region, who worked at school for 40 years, was recognized as an extremist. The reason is the incident at the parent meeting

    The story began with the mother of a student of the Bolotninsk school – a migrant from Uzbekistan – started a debate about the school menu. Word for word – a scandal erupted. Witnesses say that teacher Natalya Hovhannisyan called her parent a chock and reproached her for not knowing the Russian language. The teacher denies: he says she didn’t use any rude words and was stunned to find out that she was under the article.

    – What shocked me the most is the most important accusation: “it made me speak Russian.” I didn’t force anyone to speak Russian. The only thing, the director says: “I remember, you said to learn to speak Russian.” I have been teaching for 42 years! All my life, a love of the Russian language, respect for the Russian language, pride in the Russian language, raised children in a miserable teacher’s salary, ”said Natalia Oganesyan, KP-Novosibirsk.

  3. That article on rioting Muslims is just precious. I’m sure the violent protests will soon persuade Indians that islam is a religion of peace.
    The sick irony is that an eagerness to affirm this (in the west) is renewed with every new episode of Islamic violence. Apparently the Indians are not so gullible.

    • Just the Chinese and Indians live in other cultural realities.
      And they have become quite strong and do not want to endure the Abrahamic dictatorship.

  4. It is difficult to understand this text in English for various linguistic reasons stemming from the nature of English.

    However, what is a “labor veteran”, an experienced worker?

    What is “to be under the article”, does this mean” to be prosecuted pursuant to an article (of the Russian penal code)”?

    What does “recognized as an extremist” mean, is this the same as being convicted under the Russian penal code as having committed hate speech or racial vilification or similar? If so, what does the conviction mean?

    There are two apparent Armenian surnames. Oganesyan and Hovhannisyan, and both seems to be female teachers, both are called Natalya/Natalia, which is which?

  5. Islam has become synonymous with sickness and mental illness.
    It needs to be placed in quarantine. For the greater good of course. A major climate change is way past due.
