Gates of Vienna News Feed 7/6/2020

Ghislaine Maxwell, the one-time girlfriend of the late Jeffrey Epstein, has been put on suicide watch in her jail cell. Perhaps the process is like bird-watching, with eager enthusiasts on site carrying binoculars and cameras, waiting for the long-expected event.

In other news, the newly-inaugurated Archbishop of York, Stephen Cottrell, said that Jesus was a black man. Mr. Cottrell is white.

A Man That Saw the Catastrophic Events of 2020 in Advance is Now Warning About What Will Happen in November…

A few weeks ago, hardly anyone in America had ever heard of Pastor Dana Coverstone, but now hundreds of thousands of people all over the country are buzzing about him. He leads a very small church in Burkesville, Kentucky and on June 25th he posted a video on Facebook about some remarkable things that he had seen in some of his dreams. He probably thought that only a handful of his friends would see the video, but it quickly went viral. At this point it has been watched by more than a million people on Facebook, and a copy that was posted to YouTube has now been viewed more than 600,000 times. Personally, I have had countless people share his video with me over the past week, and it still hasn’t stopped. But even though this video is spreading like wildfire, the mainstream media has been completely silent about it. In fact, if you do a search on Google News for “Pastor Dana Coverstone”, you won’t find a single news story about his video. What he was shown definitely does not fit their agenda, and so I expect that they will continue to generally ignore this phenomenon.

So what is it about his video that has people so excited?

Well, it is because he saw the catastrophic events of 2020 in advance, and he was also shown that more catastrophic events are coming.

Army of Morons: Media Out of Control — USA Going Down!

Yesterday and today, for the first time in my life, I watched the mainstream media in order to understand what people, who are clearly INCAPABLE OF CRITICAL THINKING, allow CNN to brainwash them with. I was an experiment in tapping into the intellect of the average voter.

I have to say that, at different times, I thought LONG AND HARD about the contempt of the editors and script writers, who come up with the narrative for the news, towards the viewers. Clearly, they must be ABSOLUTELY CERTAIN that they are speaking to people with the understanding of a three-year-old.

I sat there and thought this was a prank.

Two conclusions that any self-respecting American needs to draw in 2020:

The media has NO RESPECT for its audience. They are literally engaged in dumbing down people that already probably do NO READING, NO THINKING AND NO STUDYING and are susceptible to propaganda and mind manipulation.

The media is not media at all. What I saw from CNN borders on a lawsuit that ought to be filed against them for irresponsibly spreading junk around.

I had to laugh, since it was so awkward. It was troubling to view the words they chose to deliver their propaganda, and my biggest concern is that America is TOO DIVIDED and TOO MISPLACED to come back from this into the realm of real debate. There are millions of people who are TRULY SUFFERING and I don’t think that there’s any REAL INTENTION to come together.

Barack Hussein Obama is Running for a Third Term

One thing is clear: Obama and his people are calling the shots, literally, behind the Biden for President campaign. He wants a third term in office, and he may get it, using Biden as his front man. He will then reinstate his China-friendly policies.

Why, President Trump has to ask, did U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) officers seize a shipment from China that contained over 10,000 assault weapons parts being smuggled into the country? The parts were seized at Express Consignment Operations hub in Louisville, Kentucky, in a parcel described as containing 100 Steel Pin Samples. On a separate occasion, more than 5,000 counterfeit driver’s licenses and 2,909 counterfeit IDs were seized there. They also came from China and were headed to New York.

All of this looks like China is outfitting a communist insurgency on American soil. The Red Chinese are already killing our people through exports of fentanyl.

Looking at their political operations, Trump said, “One of their political weapons is cancel culture, driving people from their jobs, shaming dissenters, and demanding total submission from anyone who disagrees. This is the very definition of totalitarianism, and it is completely alien to our culture and to our values and it has absolutely no place in the United States of America.”…

Analyst Trevor Loudon has done a very good job of analyzing this problem in his latest piece, “‘People’s War:’ Pro-China Communists Claim Credit For ‘Sparking’ US Riots.” He names the names and identifies their foreign connections. He explains, “Developed by Chairman Mao, the ‘people’s war’ was a strategy whereby Maoist insurgents could use attrition and unconventional warfare to defeat much more powerful conventional armies.”

FBI Director Christopher Wray recently said, “…we are looking carefully at the prospect of foreign influence or foreign interference in all the protest activities (that’s) occurred over the last few weeks.” If they really don’t have that data, let them call Trevor Loudon and consult his KeyWiki online encyclopedia on the left.

Disney Plus’ Hamilton is the Latest Target of Cancel Culture Complaints

As America is deciding what or who to cancel next, the Broadway musical film Hamilton that just arrived on Disney Plus is now facing backlash as its lead character is the eponymous Founding Father Alexander Hamilton and who was a slave trader.

As a matter of fact, Hamilton, despite not owning any slaves, married into a family that was in the slave trade. He went on to manage the sale of slaves and also did accounting for a trading company that was engaged in slave trade. The Broadway musical, however, shows Hamilton as a “young, scrappy, and hungry” immigrant who wanted to abolish slavery.

Former Reddit CEO Ellen Pao Admits “We Knew” About Ghislaine Maxwell Sex Trafficking Underage Girls

Former Reddit CEO Ellen Pao admitted in a tweet “we knew” about Ghislaine Maxwell sex trafficking underage girls but attended a party where Maxwell was present anyway.

“Pao, a former partner at venture capital firm Kleiner Perkins, said Maxwell was at the firm’s holiday party in 2011, more than two years after Epstein was first convicted of soliciting sex from a 14 year old,” reports Business Insider.

“[Maxwell] was at the Kleiner holiday party in 2011, but I had no desire to meet her much less have a photo taken with her,” Pao tweeted last night. “We knew about her supplying underage girls for sex, but I guess that was fine with the ‘cool’ people who managed the tightly controlled guest list.”

How ‘Elementary Truth’ Is Verboten for BLM

We have arrived at the unthinkable: “America’s Jacobin moment,” as an editorial in the Wall Street Journal aptly put it. What has happened to our republic?

Our talking heads, the so-called “chattering classes,” pretend that this eruption of insanity has something to do with the quest for racial justice. That could not be further from the truth. Black Lives Matter — the movement, not the slogan — is in fact a racialist and ideological organization that denies common humanity and a morality applicable to all human beings. Professed enemies of decency and restraint, these Maoists and para-Marxists demonize all white people and anyone of any race or religion who challenges their bizarre and fanatical worldview, as well as the police (whose immediate abolition they demand). Of course, they do not believe that all black lives matter: Those black people, including children, cut down by urban violence in Chicago or Baltimore every weekend, or aborted at higher numbers than they are born in New York City, don’t pass ideological muster. Black lives matter, of course, because all lives matter, but that elementary truth is now verboten. All races are equal, but in BLM’s universe, some are more equal than others. This is a recipe for hatred and perpetual social conflict.

In Addition to Everything Else, Now “Bunny Ebola” Is Spreading Rapidly in the United States

In 2020, it has just been one thing after another. The COVID-19 pandemic has paralyzed countries all over the globe, there has been tremendous rioting, looting and civil unrest in major U.S. cities, and millions of Americans have lost their jobs as we have plunged into the worst economic downturn since the Great Depression of the 1930s. It has been such a challenging year, and we certainly don’t need any more problems, but now there is one more crisis that we can add to the list. An outbreak of a virus that is known as “bunny ebola” erupted in the southwestern United States in April, and since that time it has “moved like mad” from one location to another. At this point, cases have been confirmed at 146 different locations in the states of Arizona, California, Colorado, Nevada, New Mexico, Texas, and Utah. The good news is that this virus does not infect humans, but it is absolutely deadly for rabbits, hares, and pikas. Thousands have already died, and it appears that this pandemic is just getting started.

Once rabbits start exhibiting symptoms, it is usually already too late to do anything. According to one expert in New York, the cases that he personally witnessed earlier this year all ended horribly…

Portland Rioters Target Federal Courthouse in Consecutive Nights as Protests Stretch Into Sixth Week

While most cities have either gotten back to mostly normal or have at least seen a dramatic decrease in protest and riot activity, the jobless cretins who infest Portland have been at it every night for over six weeks now. At best, these “protests” devolve into “unlawful assemblies” before police clear them. At worst, they are declared riots and police end up making several arrests.

Was the COVID-19 Test Meant to Detect a Virus?

We’ve been hijacked by our technologies, but left illiterate about what they actually mean. In this case, I am in the rare position of having known, spent time with, and interviewed the inventor of the method used in the presently available Covid-19 tests, which is called PCR, (Polymerase Chain Reaction.)

His name was Kary B. Mullis, and he was one of the warmest, funniest, most eclectic-minded people I ever met, in addition to being a staunch critic of HIV “science,” and an unlikely Nobel Laureate, i.e. a “genius.”

One time, in 1994, when I called to talk to him about how PCR was being weaponized to “prove,” almost a decade after it was asserted, that HIV caused AIDS, he actually came to tears.

The people who have taken all your freedoms away in recent weeks, they’re social engineers, politicians, globalist thought leaders, bankers, WHO fanatics, and the like. Their army is composed of “mainstream media,” which is now literally a round-the-clock perfect propaganda machine for the Gates-led Pandemic Reich…

I conducted a two-hour interview with David Crowe— Canadian researcher, with a degree in biology and mathematics, host of The Infectious Myth podcast, and President of the think-tank Rethinking AIDS. He broke down the problems with the PCR based Corona test in great detail, revealing a world of unimaginable complexity, as well as trickery.

“The first thing to know is that the test is not binary,” he said. “In fact, I don’t think there are any tests for infectious disease that are positive or negative.”

The next part of his explanation is lengthy and detailed, but let’s push through:

“What they do is they take some kind of a continuum and they arbitrarily say this point is the difference between positive and negative.”

“Wow,” I said. “That’s so important. I think people envision it as one of two things: Positive or negative, like a pregnancy test. You “have it” or you don’t.”

“PCR is really a manufacturing technique,” Crowe explained. “You start with one molecule. You start with a small amount of DNA and on each cycle the amount doubles, which doesn’t sound like that much, but if you, if you double 30 times, you get approximately a billion times more material than you started with. So as a manufacturing technique, it’s great. What they do is they attach a fluorescent molecule to the RNA as they produce it. You shine a light at one wavelength, and you get a response, you get light sent back at a different wavelength. So, they measure the amount of light that comes back and that’s their surrogate for how much DNA there is. I’m using the word DNA. There’s a step in RT— PCR test which is where you convert the RNA to DNA. So, the PCR test is actually not using the viral RNA. It’s using DNA, but it’s like the complimentary RNA. So logically it’s the same thing, but it can be confusing. Like why am I suddenly talking about DNA? Basically, there’s a certain number of cycles.”

This is where it gets wild.

Calls to Get Europe to Join in the Facebook Boycott Are Unfounded

The prospect of Huawei using alternative components, certainly Chinese, “fundamentally changes” the situation, according to a Whitehall source speaking to The Times.

Italy: Silvia Romano Says Islam Comforted Her During Captivity

Began to accept fate with serenity says former hostage

(ANSA) — ROME, JUL 6 — Silvia Romano, an aid worker who converted to Islam during an 18-month detention by Somali Islamist militants,, said Monday her new faith had comforted her during her ordeal.

Speaking to online daily La Luce two months after being freed, Romano said “after accepting the Islamic faith, I began to look on my destiny with serenity in my soul”.

Romano was crticised by rightwingers after converting, and a nationalist opposition League MP called her a “neo-terrorist” in parliament.

In the interview with La Luce, Romano said “I was desperate because I was living with the certainty of my destiny”.

She added: “faith has different gradations, and mine developed over time”.

Prosecutors have opened a probe into a campaign of Web-based hate against 25-year-old Milan native Romano, and police cars are patrolling the street where she lives.

Romano was freed at the weekend after 18 months in captivity by the Somali Al-Shabaab group, to whom she was handed over by a kidnapping gang who snatched her in Kenya in November 2018.

Foreign Minister Luigi Di Maio has denied an Al-Shabaab spokesman’s statement that the militants had received a four-million-euro ransom for Romano.

Hatred on social media has been directed against Romano’s conversion to Islam, the fact that has did not overtly criticise Al-Shabaab, her alleged naivety in travelling to a hotspot without proper protection, and the fact that her case has allegedly ended up funding terrorism.

A former League councillor in Veneto said she should be hanged, and League MP Alessandro Pagano spurred a row with his “neo-terrorist” remark.

Di Maio, former leader of the ruling anti-establishment 5-Star Movement (M5S), said “spine-chilling things have been said about Silvia, they have gone beyond any acceptable limit.” Romano has responded to the criticism by saying she adopted Islam freely and intends to remain in the faith.

New German Tanks Represent 50 Year Leap in Military Technology for Hungary

The Leopard 2A4 main battle tanks for training purposes will propel the Hungarian ground forces twenty years in time, while the combat duty Lepoard 2 A7+ variants will add another thirty years to that, putting Hungarian armor at the top of the world, an army general told conservative news portal Origo on taking delivery of the first training tanks.

Croatia Conservatives Hail ‘Great’ Re-Election Victory

Third place for right-wing Homeland Movement

(ANSA-AFP) — ZAGREB, JULY 6 — Croatia’s conservatives scored a re-election victory in a parliamentary vote on Sunday, official results showed, putting them in a strong position to build a government that will inherit the economic fallout of the coronavirus pandemic. The vote was held under the shadow of the global health crisis, with the Adriatic country’s tourism-dependent economy on course for its steepest decline in decades.

The Croatian Democratic Union (HDZ), which has dominated the country for most of its nearly 30-year independence, fell short of an absolute majority but outperformed its main rival by a longshot. The party took 68 seats in the 151-member house, followed by 42 for the centre-left coalition led by the Social Democrats (SDP), according to official results with nearly 90 percent of the ballots counted. In third place with 15 seats was the new ‘Homeland Movement’ party led by a folk singer who appealed to hardliners on the right with nationalist rhetoric.

“Our victory is not only great but binding,” Prime Minister Andrej Plenkovic said of his HDZ party’s task to “work with all our hearts for Croatia”. “We had a difficult mandate full of challenges behind us and the challenges ahead of us are even greater,” he said. The ruling party had campaigned on its relatively successful containment of the country’s virus outbreak so far, reporting some 110 deaths and 3,000 infections in the country of 4.2 million. Plenkovic, a former MEP with strong backing from Brussels, was cast as a safe pair of hands to navigate the coming economic downturn. The SDP-led opposition had accused their right-wing rivals of endangering citizens by “rushing” to hold the elections even as the country logged a new uptick in infections in recent weeks. They had also highlighted HDZ’s history of corruption, which was brought back to the spotlight by a recent scandal involving a top official. But despite polls putting the two camps neck-and-neck, the conservatives prevailed with a resounding lead. After the results came in Social Democrat leader Davor Bernardic said he was ready to step down and congratulated the “electoral winner which is HDZ and Andrej Plenkovic”. Their camp was also hurt by the rise of a new green-leftist group, Mozemo, who garnered some seven seats in its parliamentary debut. — Corruption, emigration — The HDZ’s outgoing environment minister Tomislav Coric said he expected the party to find coalition partners in the coming days. There are “political options that are close to us from both ideological and program point of view”, he told local television. One path to the 76-seat majority would be to ally with eight ethnic minority MPs. In that case HDZ would not need the votes of the ‘Homeland Movement’ led folk singer Miroslav Skoro, who lured away traditional HDZ voters disappointed with Plenkovic’s more moderate stance. The singer founded the party after he finished third in the country’s presidential election in December. “We are on a good path and voters have recognised that,” Skoro said of his third-place ranking. During the campaign the 57-year-old drew sharp criticism from the left for sexist remarks, an anti-migrant stance and tolerance of Croatia’s pro-Nazi past. While the coronavirus crisis dominated the campaign, older problems like corruption and high emigration were also on the minds of some voters. “There is not enough focus on Croatians leaving for abroad, unemployment and poor salaries of young people,” retired teacher Branka Tekavec told AFP. Voters were advised to wear masks and bring their own pens to polling stations while officials paid home visits to collect the ballots of 500 people — some 10 percent of those in self-isolation — who requested to vote. Others infected with the virus were able to cast ballots through a proxy.

Croatia’s Center-Right HDZ Wins Election

Incumbent Prime Minister Andrej Plenkovic’s center-right Croatian Democratic Union (HDZ) has won the elections in Croatia, securing between 61 and 65 seats in the 151-seat single chamber legislation, with the opposition Social-Democrats second with 44 seats.

The election — normally due in autumn of every fourth year — was brought forward to early July at the proposal of the governing HDZ, which argued that the uncertainties regarding the coronavirus pandemic and more specifically a potential second wave in autumn could severely reduce attendance. While the opposition parties reluctantly agreed to the move, most political analysts said Plenkovic brought forward the elections to capitalize on his government’s good handling of the pandemic: Croatia, with a population of just over four million so far had only 3,151 confirmed coronavirus cases and 113 casualties.

Suicides and Violence Rising in Lebanon Amid Crisis

Beirut roads blocked and workers protesting

BEIRUT — Streets were blocked once more Monday in the Lebanese capital and other cities in the country by protests amid a severe economic crisis and social tensions.

Local media report that three people committed suicide in a 48-hour period in Beirut and the southern part of the country, “due to worsening economic conditions”.

There has also been a rise in organised crime, which local media attribute to the “desperation” of much of the population among surging living costs.

The local currency, the lira, has lost over 75% of its value and the steep rise in the price of basic necessities has surpassed 50% in some cases.

Workers in Beirut on Monday morning who had been laid off by Lebanon’s main cement factory staged a protest in the center of the capital, bringing their mixers to Martyrs’ Square.

The Al-Sabeh Cement company, the largest in the country, had announced that it would be laying off 95% of its employees.

Alongside the workers were their counterparts from stone quarries, whose activities have been suspended for months due to restrictions brought in to counter the spread of COVID-19.

Protesting on Monday morning in front of the interior ministry offices in the Hamra area were members of the national taxi drivers union, who are urging the government to update transportation fees in line with the devaluation of the local currency and to get rid of several direct taxes on taxi drivers.

Over the weekend there were clashes on Mount Lebanon between anti-government protestors and followers of government parties in the Chouf, as well as between activists and the military in Metn. About a dozen people were reportedly injured.

The Mullah’s Spies and Assassinations in the West

Another spy from the Iranian regime, Mohammad Davoudzadeh Loloei, 40, has been sentenced to prison in a European court — this time, Denmark — for being an accessory to the attempted murder of one or more individuals who are opponents of the Iranian regime. What is unusual is that this is all taking place while Europe’s leaders continue to pursue a policy of appeasement with the ruling mullahs of Iran.

According to Roskilde District Court, in Denmark, Loloei had collected information on a dissident, so far unnamed, and given it to Iran’s intelligence service, who planned to murder the man. The information included photos of the target’s house, street and surroundings. “The court found that the information was collected and passed on to a person working for an Iranian intelligence service, for use by the intelligence service’s plans to kill the exile,” the court’s statement read.

Yet another stunning revelation about the true origin of COVID-19 — China Lied People Died!

Guest post by Lawrence Sellin, Ph.D.

In 2013, Zheng-Li Shi, the “bat woman,” and her team from the Wuhan Institute of Virology were asked to investigate the virus profile of a mine shaft in Yunnan Province after six miners contracted pneumonia with symptoms similar to Severe Acute Respiratory Syndrome (SARS). [We were the first to report on Dr. Shi back in April.]

After sampling the mine shaft for a year, the researchers identified a diverse group of bat coronaviruses, one of which was designated RaBtCoV/4991 (GenBank KP876546) and partially sequenced as a 440-base pair fragment targeting the RNA-dependent RNA polymerase gene (RdRp).

Former UK Spy Chief Tells Security Services: Don’t Dismiss Theory Coronavirus Came From Chinese Lab

The former head of MI6 has warned his former colleagues in the intelligence service and the scientific community not to dismiss the theory that the Chinese coronavirus came from a lab in Wuhan, after last month revealing that a study claimed COVID-19 had elements “inserted” into it.

Sir Richard Dearlove, head of Britain’s foreign intelligence service from 1999 to 2004, doubled down this week on his assessment that coronavirus may have been manufactured in a lab in Wuhan and had accidentally escaped.

Hong Kong: Police Allowed Warrantless Searches, Internet Control, And Communication Interception

It seems that the trouble with China’s new National Security Law (NSL) has just began, especially when it comes to Hong Kong.

Hong Kong Chief Executive Carrie Lam has made a decision to invoke the law, which came into force in late June, in order to allow the territory’s police to enter premises without warrant, restrict movement, and freeze or forfeit assets — but also intercept communication, and request ISPs or platforms to remove information online.

Hong Kong has until now enjoyed a special status within China, including being left out of some of the most restrictive online censorship rules applying to the mainland, like the Great Firewall.

Now They Are Trying to Tell US That COVID-19 is “10 Times More Infectious” Than it Was at the Beginning of the Pandemic

If the elite really do intend to use COVID-19 to fundamentally transform our society, they are going to need to continue to find ways to make it sound a lot more scary than it really is. Over the past couple of weeks, we have been endlessly barraged with news stories that boldly declare that “the second wave” is here, and now we are being told that this coronavirus is “10 times more infectious” than it was when it first started spreading in China. And we are also being told that COVID-19 “causes infected human cells to sprout tentacles loaded with viral venom to help it spread around the body”. All of that definitely sounds quite frightening, and over the past couple of weeks a lot of people have really been freaking out as the number of confirmed cases has surged.

But it has become clear that this virus is not going to kill more than 50 million people like the Spanish Flu pandemic of 1918 to 1920 did.

So far, the death toll from this virus has surpassed half a million, and more will keep dying every day. However, we need to keep in mind that millions of people die from various diseases every single year. According to the WHO, the flu kills between 290,000 and 650,000 people each year, but we don’t shut down everything because of that.

Yes, COVID-19 is more serious than the flu. But there is absolutely no reason that it should be paralyzing our society at this point.

If millions upon millions of people were suddenly dropping dead all over the globe, avoiding this virus would be a matter of survival. That is not the scenario that we are currently facing, and we need people to understand that.

Someday a pandemic will come along which will be that serious, but as far as COVID-19 is concerned, fear of the virus has been even worse than the virus itself.

[Comment: Re: 10X — this sounds like another lie to cover up the first lie.]

8 thoughts on “Gates of Vienna News Feed 7/6/2020

  1. “In other news, the newly-inaugurated Archbishop of York, Stephen Cottrell, said that Jesus was a black man. Mr. Cottrell is white.”

    This is getting weirder every day…

    • If only we could get away with “weirder”. Mad. At least one deepLy conservative Irish Christian city has huge paintings of extremely radical looking African and Middle eastern Muslim females “watching” everyone from what might otherwise be prime advertising space. Reminds one of those Hitler shots at height of Nazi power in Germany. Whatever is going on here I hope I can get out in time.

  2. Jesus was a Galilaean and Galilaea was inhabited mainly by Greeks who became Jews by force.It is said that he was a Grecojew.

    Now if this is true or not i do not know,but Julian the Apostate never called him a Jew but he called him contemptuously ,Galilaean.
    The whole story about blacks and whites is becoming ridiculous and dangerous.

    • “Galilean”? Now I’m no expert on the Bible, but I’m pretty sure it says Jesus was descended from King David on his mother’s side.

      • He has two genealogies in the New Testament and both make it clear he was of the tribe of Judah and a descendant of David.

  3. Can’t say never, but I would be very surprised if Chislane Mawxwell was to take her own life-on the contary that, someone else might endeavour to kill her, they knowing what she knows. The beans she will spill, will rock many a loaded boat-but I doubt she will say much about Prince Andrew that would throw certain evidence the prosecutors way.

  4. Kabuki theater of the absurd. Nothing will happen to anyone affiliated with the deep state.
    The one world government will happen whether we like it or not.

    “We shall have World Government, whether or not we like it. The only question is whether World Government will be achieved by conquest or consent.”. ~ James Paul Warburg.

  5. What if Putin is Rasputin! How dare he criticize Globohomo.
    We need WWIII with Russia right now so we can improvementate them with cultural enrichment.
    Our elite 69th rump ranger units will smash those SPEZNAZIS with force and fury.
    Forward (shouted from a safe space in the rear with the gear)!
