Crazy Woman Who Banned Her State From Buying Seeds and Punished Barbers Now Wants a Bailout From Trump

Michigan Governor Gretchen Whitmer is famous for her tyrannical rule, her blind ambition, and her raw hatred for those who disagree with her.

In March crazed Democrat Michigan Governor Gretchen Whitmer prohibited big box retailers from in-person sale of seeds because according to her, plant seeds were non-essential.

Whitmer also called on Home Depot and Lowes to close off certain sections like flooring, garden centers and plant nurseries.

In late March Michigan Democrat Governor Gretchen Whitmer limited access of doctors from prescribing the lifesaving drugs hydroxychloroquine and Z-Paks to save senior citizens in the state from Coronavirus. Then she continued to send coronavirus patients to nursing homes. This is still happening in May!

USSA Central Bankers Stole $7 Trillion After Government Locked People Down

The truth is that Trump has only helped enrich the bankers and the elitists with the constant passage of more stimulus to cover for the central bank’s collapse. Those central bankers stole at least $7 trillion, primarily from poor people during the government-forced COVID-19 lockdown which destroyed small businesses all over the world. Poor people all over this planet are now starving while the fat cats in Washington rest easy after the printing of unlimited money for the world’s biggest wealthiest bankers. It bailed them out of their debt crisis and gave them the right to give themselves and their friends as much money as they want by printing it out of thin air and they are doing that even as we speak.

It will also be convenient to repossess all the land and building when those payments to the banks are not made later this year. The fact that people cannot see that the New World Order is progressing at a rapid rate and Donald Trump isn’t even putting speed bumps in the way is alarming, in and of itself.

This is the biggest robbery in the history of the world, and ordinary people are suffering horribly. They were locked down and they felt like they couldn’t breathe. Their economic lives have been destroyed. They feel like they couldn’t breathe.

And so then suddenly, just at the moment when they should have risen up and revolt and stormed Wall Street, stormed Washington, DC and overthrown these thieves who just conducted the biggest robbery in the history of the world, suddenly this conversation changes to race, and the ordinary working white people and black people are being turned against each other, talking about race, rather than this robbery, conducted under the premeditated pretext of a COVID pandemic which was almost certainly manufactured in a biological warfare lab, under the direction of the very bankers who have stolen six, seven or more trillion dollars based on this pandemic which they obviously plotted out in great detail ahead of time, as part of an effort for them to centralize their wealth and power to stop the rise of China by blowing up the globalized world economy that is the engine of China’s rise and to allow them to impose a top-down police state on the people of the West so they can be ready to continue to centralize and strengthen their control of the West and the world. That’s what COVID really was. And they’ve changed the conversation to race so that we don’t notice it. —ALWAGHT News

A petition to officially change the name of Ohio’s capital city of Columbus to “Flavortown” is nearing 20,000 as protests over police brutality and racism have begun to target statues of Christopher Columbus.

Tyler Woodbridge, a 32-year-old former Columbus resident, started the petition to rename the city after the catch-phrase of television restaurateur Guy Fieri, a native of Columbus. Woodbridge pointed to Fieri’s charitable work and contributions to LGBT causes, saying it stands in sharp contrast to the “tarnished legacy” of the city’s current namesake.

Andy NGO Demolishes WaPo’s Anti-Trump ‘Fact-Check’ Claiming No Antifa-Led Violence in the Riots.

Yet on Monday, The Washington Post fact-checker claimed that Trump’s statements about antifa were lies. The Post Millennial’s Andy Ngo definitively shot down that ludicrous claim in one tweet.

Caroline Glick: John Bolton’s Temper Tantrum

Former US national security adviser John Bolton’s critics routinely refer to him as a neoconservative. But they are wrong. Bolton was never part of the neoconservative clique of Bush administration officials.

Neoconservatives are messianists and American imperialism is their replacement theology.

Neoconservatives view America as the Promised Land and Americans as the Chosen People. From their perspective, the Torah was superseded by the Declaration of Independence. The Torah will not go forth from Zion, but from Washington, and the world will reach a redemptive state — what Jews refer to as “Tikkun Olam” not when the nations of the world accept God’s reign, but when the American empire brings democracy to all corners of the world.

Bolton, like President Donald Trump, disdains messianism. Like President Trump, his view of foreign policy is cut and dry. America is the good guy. It has enemies and allies. It is supposed to be good to its allies and bad to its enemies so that the people will want to be its allies and won’t want to be its enemies.

This worldview stands at the base of Bolton’s longstanding and firm support for Israel. Rightly, he views Israel as the US’s only loyal ally in the Middle East. He recognizes that the stronger Israel is, the stronger the US is. For this reason, Bolton opposed the peace process with the PLO and Israel’s unilateral withdrawals from its security zone in southern Lebanon and Gaza Strip. He rightly recognized that all of these moves weakened Israel and empowered its enemies, which are also America’s enemies.

When Bolton ran a quixotic campaign in the Republican presidential primaries in 2012, many of his supporters hoped that at a minimum his run would help to position him as the Republican Party’s national security standard-bearer. And when President Trump appointed Bolton to serve as his national security adviser in 2018, many were certain that working together, the two men would take America’s superpower stature to new heights.

Alas, the two men’s common sense of the general thrust of US national security policy did not translate into a good working relationship. And truth be told, the person most responsible for their inability to work together was Bolton, not Trump…

It Happened Again! New Jersey Republicans Receive Mail-in Ballots With Only Democrat Choices

Gateway Pundit readers may recall a recent report we published that shed light on hundreds, possibly thousands, of Oregon voters who mysteriously had their party changed, most from Republican to Non Affiliated, without their permission, consent or knowledge, effectively denying them the right to vote in their party’s primary and disqualifying them from being Precinct Committee Persons.

The ballots were mailed to their home by state officials.

The Democrat state leaders in Oregon denied they were at fault and asked Facebook to delete all mentions of the story. This was despite OVER 2,000 Oregon voters speaking out on the violation.

Despite hundreds of people coming forward with similar stories about how they received a non affiliated ballot, and despite many screenshots from the Facebook group mentioned in our article, Facebook’s infamous far left “fact checkers” later deemed the story as “misinformation” at the request of the Oregon state government.

Well it happened again… And only to Republican voters!

It’s Time to Cancel the Democratic Party for Its Long History of Racism

by Francis Menton

We are living in the age of cancel culture. All icons from the past associated in any way with mistreatment of minorities are in the process of being eradicated.

Statues of Confederate figures? They’re mostly already gone. But that was just the start. How about statues of George Washington or Thomas Jefferson? In New York, First Lady Chirlane McCray will decide on their fate. How about a statue of Ulysses Grant (who may have done more than anyone other than Lincoln to free the slaves, but also once briefly owned a slave before freeing him)? His statue in San Francisco was toppled yesterday. How about the weathervane atop the Dartmouth College library (featuring a sculpture of a Native American)? It now must go (it “do[es] not reflect Dartmouth’s values” says the president). Aunt Jemima? Uncle Ben? They are now unacceptable racial stereotypes.

And God forbid you are a conservative at a U.S. university who fails to toe the official party line, such as by criticizing Black Lives Matter. You will be subject to an unrelenting campaign to get you fired and silenced. (Read about the case of William Jacobson of Cornell Law School here.). Or a journalist who dares to publish something critical of Black Lives Matter. (Read about the case of Lee Fang here.)

Readers can undoubtedly come up with dozens of additional recent examples of social media mobs descending to ostracize well known individuals or institutions for conduct deemed insufficiently sensitive, often conduct that is far in the past.

But what American institution of all those existing today has the longest and deepest association with violent bigotry and grotesque racism, including slavery, segregation, Jim Crow, and the Ku Klux Klan? The answer is the Democratic Party.

When we consider the history of racism in the Democratic Party, we are not talking about some debatable lack of “sensitivity” or uncaring use of stereotypes. No, this is something fundamentally different. This is the most overt, explicit and direct sorts of actions targeted specifically at the oppression of African American citizens.

Isn’t it time that this institution with a long history of the most vicious racism gets canceled?

In a post back in August 2017 (at the time of demonstrations about Confederate statues in Charlottesville, Virginia), I compiled a small sample of some of the most egregious racist conduct of the Democratic Party. Rather than re-do that work, I will include a substantial excerpt here:…

Right Now There is a “Mad Rush” To Get Out of the Cities

So many wealthy people are rushing to move away from the big cities that it is creating a bit of a “real estate boom” in many suburban areas, small towns and rural communities. Fear of COVID-19, a collapsing economy and the tremendous urban violence that we have witnessed in recent weeks have combined to create a frenzy of activity. Last week, my wife and I heard from a friend in New York City that is all of a sudden desperate to move to another state, and I certainly can’t blame him for wanting to relocate. If I was in his shoes, I would be wanting to move too. But at this point so many people are all thinking the same thing that the demand for housing in certain areas threatens to greatly exceed the supply. In fact, one real estate agent in the San Francisco area is describing it as “a mad rush to get out of the city”…

US Attorney General Barr Accuses Social Media Platforms of Censorship “Bait and Switch”

William Barr, the US Attorney General, says that social media companies have to make their censorship policies clear and a “reasonably-based reason” for pulling down content. His remarks reiterate the White House and Department of Justice (DOJ) recent attacks on Section 230, which shields tech companies from liability due to user-generated content.

Speaking to Fox News, the AG said that social platforms are censoring content based on what they deem right. Therefore, they have become publishers instead of maintaining neutrality. According to Barr, the lack of neutrality means these companies should no longer enjoy the liability shield of Section 230.

Farewell

Dear Followers,

The editorial staff at Voice of Europe’s regrets to inform you, our readers, that we will be ceasing our news publishing operations indefinitely. Our decision, of course, comes with the heaviest of hearts and follows months of increased censorship from Google, Facebook, and Twitter. Furthermore, our ability to monetize our content, which had already been greatly diminished as a result of the virus’s economic effects, was recently taken away completely when our ad platforms banned us outright. Unfortunately, we do not receive nearly enough financial support from you, the readers, to cover the costs of our operation. For all of these reasons, we’ve decided end Voice of Europe.

Like you, we at Voice of Europe are also deeply concerned about the dark place that our society seems to be headed. We have clearly entered a time where sharing facts which aren’t in line with the mainstream narrative is no longer tolerated.

We are grateful for the support that you’ve shown us over the years.

Farewell.

VoE Team

France: 10 Children of Jihadists Return From Syria

Were in camps in northeast managed by Kurds

(ANSAmed) — PARIS, JUNE 22 — Ten children of French jihadists, all minors, arrived in France from Syria overnight Sunday, said the French foreign ministry. The children were in camps in northeast Syria under the control of the Kurds. They are orphans and are considered “humanitarian cases” and they will now be placed in the custody of the judicial authorities who will ensure they receive medical care and social services, as needed. Since the defeat of ISIS in March 2019, France has repatriated 28 children of jihadists from Syria. The government “thanked the semi-autonomous administration of the Kurds for their cooperation”.

Authorities quickly concluded that the incident was a terrorist attack and later carried out a raid and a controlled explosion at the suspect’s home.

Hungary and the Rest of Central Europe Shouldn’t Follow ‘Fashionable’ Western Liberal Ideas

Hungary should not blindly follow the recent Western European pattern of Black Lives Matter protests and the associated vandalism, Magyar Hirlap columnist Katalin Kondor writes:

Ever since Europe has been, for lack of a better world, “modernized”, every single fashionable idea, or rather folly, that comes from the very educated and very modern West, inevitably reaches us. And these trends have more than their fair share of followers in Hungary and Central Europe. In fact, these ideas pervade every aspect of our lives, whether it’s about the #MeToo movement against male dominance and abuse, the latest wonder diets, or the freshest Black Lives Matter trend.

These type of news items make headlines all over the world, including, strangely enough, Hungary. It does not follow why anyone in Hungary, a country that has a small share of black workers and students, and never brought black slaves to its territory, should launch their own BLM protests.

PM Babis Accuses European Parliament of Putting Pressure on Czech Judiciary

According to Czech Prime Minister Andrej Babis, the European Parliament resolution on his possible conflict of interest aims to influence audit procedures in the EU, with the European Parliament exerting political and media pressure on the Czech judicial system.

Members of the European Parliament approved the resolution disapproving of Babis’s possible conflict of interest on Friday. According to MEPs, the Czech prime minister challenges the independence of his post by participating in the EU budget decision-making and, at the same time, controls the Agrofert holding, which received EU agricultural subsidies.

However, Babis has repeatedly said that he no longer has any influence in the Agrofert company he founded. In 2017, before becoming the prime minister, he transferred the holding into a trust.

Vucic Triumphs in Serbia, His Party Surpasses 60%

But boycott goes well for opposition, reduced voter turnout

(ANSAmed) — BELGRADE, JUNE 22 — Serbian President Aleksandar Vucic triumphed in elections on Sunday, as expected, with his Serbian Progressive Party (SNS) winning a large majority in both the parliamentary and administrative vote. Initial partial election results were announced on Sunday evening by state broadcaster RTS, based on processing by Ipsos and Cesid, giving SNS more than 60% of the vote. The first figure, 63.4%, was subsequently reduced to 62.5%, as further results came in, but Vucic’s success appears irrefutable, also considering that second place went to the Socialist Party (SPS) of Foreign Minister Ivica Dacic, allied with the government, which obtained 10.7%, less than the forecast, which spoke of figures higher than 12%. Initial partial results showed that only three political forces surpassed the 3% threshold for obtaining seats in the 250-member unicameral parliament. In addition to SNS and SPS, the movement SPAS, a moderate, centre-right opposition force led by former water polo player Aleksandar Sapic, obtained about 4%.All the 18 political forces in contention came in with less than 3% of the vote. The opposition, which initially in recent months seemed as if it wanted to united forces against SNS and Vucic — the opposition front was credited with between 13% and 14% — it later decided to boycott the vote, maintaining that in Serbia conditions didn’t exist for free and democratic elections. The opposition later had an internal split, with the more hardline and radical forces confirming the boycott, while other parties and movements with more moderate positions decided to participate, even after the lowering of the threshold from 5% to 3%. The result, however, wasn’t the best for Vucic’s adversaries, given that, according to initial polling results, only one opposition force will enter into parliament. Dragan Djilas, one of the leaders of the radical opposition, maintained that the boycott was nevertheless successful because it reduced voter turnout, which he said was much less than the 50% reported by SNS, and said this doesn’t give legitimacy to Vucic’s power. Djilas said voter turnout was just over 40%, with Belgrade at only 36%. The most recent official figure from the electoral commission at 6 p.m. on Sunday evening spoke of turnout at 40.82%. Vucic’s party reported on Sunday evening that voter turnout was just over 50%. According to initial partial returns, Vucic’s SNS took 180 seats out of the 250 overall, SPS garnered 30 seats, and SPAS took 11. SNS therefore has an overwhelming majority that will allow the president’s party to govern alone and to continue — as Vucic said several times during his campaign — its programme of reforms to modernise the country and the creation of necessary infrastructure, together with the chapter regarding Kosovo and the difficult search for an accord on normalisation of relations with Pristina.

  1. Today was the 79th anniversary of Hitler’s Invasion of the Soviet Union. In retrospect, maybe it would have been better to have backed him to defeat Stalin, then let Hitler fall on his own.

  2. https://kalakazo.livejournal.com/3395812.html

    Look what a horror. Yesterday, Patriarch Kirill “congratulated everyone” on the terrible tragedy – the beginning of the Great Patriotic War.
    Look at the photo. The Patriarch, along with Putin and the Minister of Defense, conjured a giant soul-eater. And they laid flowers on a triangular stone that looked like a pyramid.

    People in the comments write that this temple is the place of worship of Moloch.

  3. Two NGO Ships With Nearly 280 Migrants Arrive in Sicily as Migration Wave to Europe Grows.

    Germany again!
    I am asking once more ,why on earth do not take them to a German safe port?
    This Mr Conte of Italy sounds to me a very weak little man, tool of the NWO.
    In the port of Embedokles? Poor philosopher,he will turn upside down inside his grave.
    Italy and the rest of Europe should be prepared to receive nearly 700.000 north Africans from Libya,pushed into E.U by Turkey.
    These are today’s news from a reliable Greek newspaper.
    They will try to land them to the island of Crete but the people of this island are like the Spartans,if you understand what i mean.

    I have written before,this time the Turks will not stop outside Vienna.
    P.S
    Non profit NGO? I like that!

    • I dunno, maybe because for all your railing about the “German NGO”, it’s a non-profit non-government organization so it isn’t tied to any state in loyalty or otherwise?

      How about Italy stop trying to give them passports for Schengen Zone from there and naturalizing them all? It’s been proven Italians have tried to shuffle them to the Alpine French border before. Those same poor poor Southern Europeans threaten to use immigrants as weapons against Northern Europe all the time without punishment.

      • There is not a not profit NGO since the persons of these organization are paid by Soros ( in my country,2000 euros).
        Yes the poor South Europeans suffer from this invasion which takes place with the blessing of Merkel who in the same time gives 4 submarines to Turkey to use against my country and when you see the east Mediterranean in flames and at the same time lmmigrand uprising in all thr European cities then you should remember what I write here.
        There is only one solution to safety.Send back all the immigrants and said to Merkel a stendorian SHUT UP you idiot woman and leave Europe to survive.

        • They are a part of the EU to leach off better economies.

          Also learn some history.

          https://www.telegraph.co.uk/news/worldnews/islamic-state/11459675/Greeces-defence-minister-threatens-to-send-migrants-including-jihadists-to-Western-Europe.html

          “Greece’s defence minister threatens to send migrants including jihadists to Western Europe.

          Panos Kammenos, Greece’s defence minister, threatens to open country’s borders to refugees – including potential members of Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant (Isil) – unless Athens receives debt crisis support”

          March 2015, before the migrant crisis.

          Those poor Southern Europeans everyone!

          • You do not know who is Kammenos.
            I will tell you.He was a politician who spoke a lot and who nobody trusted him.He said that to please the people not to actually do it.He had not the guts.He is the opposite of a brave man.I say he was because after his part in the FYROM problem he is considered a traitor and he keeps a low profile hoping in vain off course that he will escape punishment.
            He was the most unreliable politician.
            As for the “poor southern Europeans”,come and live here like a native and not only for your hollydays,and after express your opinion.
            Come and experience the replacement of the natives by Islam,and see the future of Europe.We in the south are the first,you will follow and this please believe me i pray not to happen.

      • In the island of Lesbos German members of NGO with 2000 euros for each member bring and shelter illegals from Turkey. With what right?So why not send them up north to You?
        Tell me why not?

          • With what happens in America,i do not envy you.
            The only safe place in which one lives happy is up in the mountains .With wolfs and bears is safer than with humans and especially with politicians.

    • Sink the bloody ships and that will end the problem! For the love of all that is Holy! You ain’t going to get out of this by depending on other people to get the job done for you! If you want the job done!? Do it yourself! I hear way too much crying, whining, wringing hands and no bloody action! You ain’t going to get out of this without getting your own hands dirty. So getter done!

  4. UK: London to Erect Statues Celebrating Mass Migration

    Boris Jhonson’s Great gran father was a Turk by the name Ali Kemal,his paternal gran father is Zeki kuneralp father of the British
    politician Stanley Jhonson, probably that is why he is pro Turkish,but he spend his H
    hollydays in my country in a house he has
    in Mount Pelios(the mount of Centaurs) in central Greece.
    The statue shows also that he is a descendant of a migrant.

    Poor Enoch!

    • His ancestry is also partly Jewish, for what it’s worth; anyway, he’s shown himself to be totally incompetent, and is likely to be ditched by his party before the next election.

      • I agree.

        Simply being better than Theresa May is not much of a compliment. I have defecated feces that were superior to her and likely would have led the UK better than she did.

        Boris is no Churchill, but then again, Churchill was the product of a unique set of circumstances and culture that was murdered in the catastrophe of the First World War. Churchill had personally fought in what is now Pakistan, during the Boer War in South Africa, and in the Sudan against the armies of the Mahdi. He was an accomplished writer and had a depth of experience to draw on that would have humbled The Most Interesting Man in the World. This day and age just simply does not make men of his caliber, and so the leaders of the West come to their jobs with a dearth of experiences to draw upon, and a lack of character that was forged in armed conflict and adversity. Also, the society has completely changed from the days of Churchill’s leadership. I doubt if he were alive today he would have any better success leading the pathetic dregs of Western civilization that we have been transformed into.

        • Sadly, I’m inclined to agree. Many British politicians of the generation after Churchill, Conservative and Labour, had a gravitas and credibility which I suspect came from serving in WW2, and which is sadly lacking today.

          Short diversion: I knew a Labour politician (and fellow-classical record collector), Roy Shaw, now deceased; he commanded a Sherman tank in Normandy in 1944 (inferior to the German tanks, but we and the Americans had more). He told me that they would go into combat with the hatches open, so if they got a direct hit, they might just have time to bale out before it exploded.

          • The British called them “Ronsons” after a popular brand of cigarette lighter that was known for its ability to light every time.

            Regarding the numerical superiority if not technological superiority of Allied tanks over the Germans, Stalin purportedly had quipped a relevant comment. “Quantity has a quality of its own”.

          • In a previous life I was the gunner on an M1 Abrams MBT. Tanks have always fascinated me, but the reality was far less satisfying.

    • I see those statues getting pulled down or blown up as they rightly should, nothing some det cord can’t handle and makes little pieces of those abominations.

    • Way back when with that smiley smug David Frost on TV chatting so condescendingly with Enoch Powell. “Oh come now…a little bit of competition is a good thing”. Maybe a statue of Enoch. I can’t imagine BJ……no wait.

  5. Too bad Robin Williams isn’t around to disavow and apologize for his portrayal of Teddy Roosevelt in the Night at the Museum movies. Maybe they can get Ben Stiller to grovel but I think he is Jewish so maybe, maybe not. There seems to be a split there on all of this. Maybe the producer will grovel. I think it would be interesting to see how people react to the movie now.

  6. In my last comment I made an orthografic mistake.
    It is Stentorian by the name of the Trojan hero Stentor who had a very powerfull voice.

  7. Not difficult to picture feminised western utopian defence mechanisms refusing to fire on armed “migrants”.
