Andrew Gillum, the once-rising Democratic star, says in a new interview that he didn’t recognize himself in a photo in which “I was literally lying in my own vomit” that emerged after a night of partying, according to a report.

The 40-year-old — who narrowly lost the 2018 Florida governor’s race — was found inebriated inside a Miami Beach hotel room with another man who allegedly overdosed on crystal meth.

Gillum was found vomiting in the bathroom of Mondrian South Beach, while the other man was treated for a possible drug overdose. Police found three baggies of crystal meth on the bed and floor at the time.

FBI Says Reports of Antifa Arson in Oregon Are ‘Conspiracy Theories, ‘ But Someone is Starting Fires

As wildfires burn throughout Oregon and close in on Portland, a number of arrests and reports suggest that some of these fires may have been started intentionally. The FBI has dismissed reports of arson as “conspiracy theories.”

Multiple wildfires are ripping through Oregon, with local media reporting seven dead as of Friday. Governor Kate Brown has evacuated more than 40,000 people, and the state’s emergency management director, Andrew Phelps, said on Friday that authorities are preparing for a “mass fatality event.”

How to Steal an Election — Part II

The very publication of the Transition Integrity Project (TIP) report and the subsequent news media reporting about it are components of psychological warfare within the broader information warfare campaign aimed at spreading demoralizing rumors to Trump supporters.

Insurrection Underway, Bloody Civil War to Follow

THIS IS STARK REALITY RIGHT NOW. Democrat Communist shock troops known as Black Lives Matter, Antifa, et al, have started an insurrection by burning, looting, killing and destroying our cities. Their objective is clear, to make life miserable for Americans so they will accept a Chinese Communist Type Dictatorship rather than freedom under our Constitution. If Biden wins, it will be clear sailing for the Communists, but if President Trump wins we have a chance to keep our Republic without a Bloody Civil War. If Biden wins or loses, the Communists will continue the insurrection for they have too much invested to quit.

YOU MUST KNOW YOUR ENEMY. You must know who is directing and paying for this Treason with impunity. It is the elites who consider themselves entitled and superior to you and me. The elites consist of most of the following: major corporations, banks, teachers unions, trust funds, media, professional sports organizations and athletes, Facebook, Twitter, Youtube, Hollywood personalities, federal bureaucrats, universities, military flag officers, et al.

YOU MUST KNOW WHY YOU AND PRESIDENT TRUMP ARE HATED. It is because we stand in the way of their absolute power to profit and enslave the people. President Trump is the only president in modern times to try to return our government to the people. He has ended policy, after policy, that enrich the elite while impoverishing the people. Trump has infuriated the elites by ending the export of manufacturing, replacement of American workers with cheaper foreign labor, restrictions on illegal migration, new trade deals, ending profit from needless wars. et al. He did all of this while working within a nest of vipers, liars, and traitors who are well paid by the elites to resist his programs.

The Coming Coup?

Democrats are laying the groundwork for revolution right in front of our eyes.

As if 2020 were not insane enough already, we now have Democrats and their ruling class masters openly talking about staging a coup. You might have missed it, what with the riots, lockdowns and other daily mayhem we’re forced to endure in this, the most wretched year of my lifetime. But it’s happening.

[…]

So why are the Democrats—publicly—talking about the conspiracy?

Because they know that, for it to succeed, it must not look like a conspiracy. They need to plant the idea in the public mind, now, that their unlawful and illegitimate removal of President Trump from office will somehow be his fault.

Never mind the pesky detail that the president would refuse to leave only if he were convinced he legitimately won. Remember: Biden should not concede under any circumstances.

The second part of the plan is either to produce enough harvested ballots—lawfully or not—to tip close states, or else dispute the results in close states and insist, no matter what the tally says, that Biden won them. The worst-case scenario (for the country, but not for the ruling class) would be results in a handful of states that are so ambiguous and hotly disputed that no one can rightly say who won. Of course, that will not stop the Democrats from insisting that they won.

Will New COVID Vaccine Make You Transhuman?

According to Madej, right now, today, we may be standing at the literal crossroads of transhumanism, thanks to the fast approaching release of one or more mRNA COVID-19 vaccines.

Many of the COVID-19 vaccines currently being fast-tracked are not conventional vaccines. Their design is aimed at manipulating your very biology, and therefore have the potential to alter the biology of the entire human race.

Conventional vaccines train your body to recognize and respond to the proteins of a particular virus by injecting a small amount of the actual viral protein into your body, thereby triggering an immune response and the development of antibodies.

This is not what happens with an mRNA vaccine. The theory behind these vaccines is that when you inject the mRNA into your cells, it will stimulate your cells to manufacture their own viral protein. The mRNA COVID-19 vaccine will be the first of its kind. No mRNA vaccine has ever been licensed before. And, to add insult to injury, they’re forgoing all animal safety testing…

“According to researchers at University of Pennsylvania and Duke University, mRNA vaccines have potential safety issues, including local and systemic inflammation and stimulation of auto-reactive antibodies and autoimmunity, as well as development of edema (swelling) and blood clots.”

Systemic inflammation, auto-reactive antibodies and autoimmune problems are not insignificant concerns. In fact, these are in large part why previous attempts to create a coronavirus vaccine have ALL failed.

Our Restaurants is a campaign organized by the Canadian Chamber of Commerce in association with various food and beverage industry leaders.

“A further 31% will only able to remain operational for up to 90 days with distancing measures in effect. In other words, up to 60% of the industry could fail within three months,” the statement goes on to say.

Agricultural Industry and Forests Devastated as Wildfires Hit Syria

by Nidal Kabalan

Two weeks into battling the raging wildfires that have devoured large agricultural lands particularly in western Syria, the sheer size of the unprecedented ecological disaster and its grave effects on some of the country’s most cherished and historical forests as well as fertile agricultural regions has started to settle in among hundreds of thousands of heartbroken farmers as well as the population as a whole.

Fortunately, by now most of the fires exacerbated by shifting strong winds have now been put out following the collaboration of fire brigades from all over the country, civil defense units, local volunteers and most recently Syrian army units aided by locally-modified helicopters as firefighting machines. Over the past couple of days, it was reported that servicemen from the Russian Hmeimeem air base near the coastal city of Latakia, along with fire-fighting tanker planes from Iran and Russia (Syria’s strongest allies) were also taking part in efforts to contain the raging inferno.

InsideOver Firsthand Account of Syrian Wildfires

Initial investigation into the fires which broke out in a number of agricultural areas in many central and western Syrian forested and agricultural areas including some of the richest natural reserves, have revealed some deliberate arson attacks as well acts of negligence that have resulted in a number of arrests.

Sputnik V Launched: Russia Dispatches First Batches of Pioneering COVID-19 Vaccine to All of Its 85 Regions

Russia has sent out the initial batches of the world’s first registered coronavirus vaccine to all parts of its vast territory, as authorities test the delivery system of the much-needed drug.

The formula is expected to be delivered on Monday, said Russia’s Health Minister Mikhail Murashko. “The first small batches have already been shipped,” Murashko said, explaining that the government is testing the supply chain to ensure a robust delivery system across the country’s 85 regions. As well as testing the efficacy and safety of the vaccine itself, the government believes it is paramount to ensure the efficient distribution to citizens, especially to those at high risk.

Russia’s homegrown Covid-19 formula is currently in the third and final stage of clinical trials, in which 40,000 Muscovites will take part. While three-quarters will receive the jab, another quarter will be given a placebo. On Wednesday, Moscow’s Deputy Mayor Anastasia Rakova announced that testing had begun, and over 35,000 residents had applied.

Kerala Will be an Islamic State in 10 Years Through Caliphate: Hindu Hater Mujahid Balussery

‘We can turn Kerala into Islamic State within next 10 years through Friday Prayers’: Jihadi preacher calls for ‘caliphate’.

P Viswanathan | HENB | Thiruvananthapuram | Sept 11, 2020:: The district of Mallapuram was formed by then CM and legendary CPIM Leader E. M. S. Namboodiripad on 16 June 1969 to make an exclusive district for the Muslims (first ever in Independent India) by incorporating southern parts of the erstwhile district of Kozhikode and northwestern parts of the erstwhile Palakkad in Kerala.

Mallapuram set an example of mass conversion of Hindus, encroachments of Hindu Temple lands, persecuting Hindus, expanding Love Jihad and Land Jihad, spreading radical activities in an extreme subversive Jihadi module under ISIS network and to make Sharia above the constitution of India.

The successive Govts in Kerala, whether it is Communist led LDF Govt or Congress led UDF Govt, both the alliances allowed Islamic fundamentalism to retain the power in the State even taking support from IUML (Indian union Muslim League).

Now, Kerala preacher Mujahid Balussery, who is known for giving hate speeches, has once again come under the scanner after he allegedly called for ‘caliphate’ in the state as Hindu and Christian groups raise alarm over the threat.

In one of his videos, Balussery can be heard inciting so-called ‘Mujahids’ to convert Kerala into a ‘caliphate’. “Send all Muslims of Kerala to Mujahid mosques just on Fridays and we can turn Kerala into an Islamic State within 10 years,” he says.

He goes on to say, “We have a duty here. If we shut down some of the other Muslim religious branches in Kerala and bring them under Mujahids, we can turn Kerala into Islamic State within 10 years. A man can be morally perfect in every way but will be denied heaven if he worships other gods.

Because saying ‘Guruvayurappa save me’ is shirk and is a bigger sin than adultery, homosexuality or lending money for interest and the person will go to hell.”

In a video accessed by the Times Now from 2017, he can be heard comparing a Hindu temple to a brothel. “If you donate money to a Hindu temple or festival, you’re encouraging shirk which is the gravest sin. You wouldn’t donate money to a brothel or a pub,” the preacher says in the video…

As a complete lock-down was declared on Sept 11 in West Bengal, Masudur took the advantage of loneliness of the field and he knew that the victim would not be able to rise an alarm even by shouting and crying loudly as she was almost deaf and dumb.

Masudur grabbed Sushila from behind and raped repeatedly. Sushila tried to resit Masudur but failed to check the rape. When Masudur tried to strangulate Sushila after rape and even tried to push her face into muddy water and slurry in the filed, Sushila managed to escape anyway from the scene.

Acquiring some courage anyway, Sushila reached the house of Masudur and narrated (through body language) her ordeal to Masudur’s wife Sohagi Khatun. But, Sohagi washed the mud in the body and specially the lower part of Sushila for removing the semen of Masudur, if traced there anyway. Taking the side of her rapist husband, Sohagi thrashed again Sushila on spot and handed over the victim lady to her parental house.

Sushila broke down to her father and hearing all these the Hindu neighbours of Sushila thronged by this time to lodge a heavy protest to Gazole Police station unitedly.

Seeing the large scale Hindu protests, the Gazole and Malda Police took the cognizance of the complaint of Victim’s father, Subal Halder and arrested Sohagi (wife of the rapist for trying to destroy the rape evidences) and arrested Masudur in the evening.

Police sources confirmed the medical test of Sushila and promised to the protesters to file charge sheet against the culprits within a limited period including custodial trial.

Public vehemently condemned this Islamic rape in the Lock-down in WB but praised for prompt police action.

A Chinese virologist who has reportedly been in hiding for fear of her safety has stepped out into the public eye again to make the explosive claim that she has the scientific evidence to prove COVID-19 was man-made in a lab in China.

Dr. Li-Meng Yan, a scientist who says she did some of the earliest research into COVID-19 last year, made the comments Friday during an interview on British talk show “Loose Women.”

When asked where the deadly virus that has killed more than 900,000 around the globe comes from, Yan — speaking via video chat from a secret location — replied, “It comes from the lab — the lab in Wuhan and the lab is controlled by China’s government.”

Rise of ‘Technosexuals’ — 14% of Men Are Aroused by Amazon Alexa

A new study commissioned by WeVibe, a sex toy company, found loneliness and anxiety during the virus-induced lockdowns has likely resulted in the emergence of “technosexuals.”

Readers must be confused about what exactly the term means. Well, it turns out that anyone who is sexually attracted to machinery, robots, and or, in this case, smart-speakers, is a technosexual.

WeVibe surveyed 1,000 men and discovered 14% of respondents confessed their Amazon smart-speaker sexually aroused them.

Also known as “Alexa,” Amazon’s smart-speaker is no longer just fulfilling questions about the daily weather or telling lame jokes, but rather the Chinese-made device is fueling men’s sexual fantasies.

    • Sir Winston Churchill’s statue in London being defaced again is quite fitting, given he played a major role in creating the current criminal Turbo-Liberal world order alongside all of the other criminals at Yalta.

      • I don’t think Churchill could have foreseen a world where traditional English names like Charles, William, and Arthur were displaced in popularity by names like Mohammad, Abdul and Khalid on a regular basis.

  1. I mentioned yesterday Germany should take the parasite ogres from Greece.
    Excellent, continue Germany,it’s in your destiny to auto destroy

    • I
      This country is destroyed already, thanks to Merkel&CO , it’s just awful, looks like you are living in 3th. World [sump] very sad for generations to come ,

    • Yes I agree, the 1 or 2 million mostly military aged males imported by our beloved leader has destroyed Europe…..I mean….there were already well over 20 million in Western Europe to begin with, but I suppose a time machine explains that part.

    • Jan, what bloody part of the German people don’t want this, never voted for it and their voices silences about this 3rd world invasion don’t you quite get or understand?

  2. Germany must take them all because the NGOs who help migrants to cross the sea from Turkish coast to Lesbos are all German.
    These NGOs are responsible for what the Afgans did to Moria.

    • When the fun and festivities of the backlash on steroids with a rich deep Balkans flavors kicks in, those 4 out of 5 native Brits will either be statistics or get with the program.
