Italy: EU Resources to Pay Recovery Fund Debt — Gentiloni

Commissioner calls for EU-wide minimum wage

(ANSA) — ROME, SEP 8 — European Economic Affairs Commissioner Paolo Gentiloni said Tuesday that debt generated by the Recovery Fund would be paid “via the EU’s own resources and digital and green taxation”.

Italy is set to be the biggest beneficiary of the EU’s 750-billion-euro fund to help States recover from the economic earthquake caused by the COVID-19 pandemic.

Gentiloni told the Brussels Economic Forum that “we will go back to normality” in relation to the easing of State aid and Stability Pact rules due to the emergency.

“It’s now forever,” said Gentiloni.

“But first of all we must decide on the time frame because we must give the economies the necessary time to recover”.

He added that “we are working on a minimum wage, I think the time is right”.

Biden Plans Would Raise Taxes by $3.4 Trillion by 2030

Democratic nominee Joe Biden’s taxation plan would amount to an additional $3.4 trillion in taxes paid by 2030, shows a study by University of Pennsylvania’s Wharton School.

Most of the money would come from corporations and wealthy Americans. The study also reports that Biden’s platform would raise federal spending approximately $5.4 trillion in the same period of time. That is about 24% of the nation’s gross domestic product and more than double the spending increase Democratic candidate for president Hillary Clinton proposed before the 2016 election.

Black Appraisals of Black Lives Matter — Part I

A previous series revealed the anti-American agenda of Black Lives Matter, which, under the guise of fighting racism, seeks to transform the United States into a communist dystopia. BLM’s leaders openly admit that they want to abolish the nuclear family, police, prisons and capitalism. BLM leaders have threatened to “burn down the system” if their demands are not met.

The series also documented, in Part II, BLM’s ideological influences and sources of funding. BLM has lifted much of its agenda from radical leftist groups active in the United States during the 1960s and 1970s. BLM is an ideological descendant of the Black Power Movement, the Black Panthers, the Black Liberation Army and the Weather Underground, all of which sought to overthrow the U.S. political system. BLM’s focus on racial issues appears to be a smokescreen for a much larger effort to dismantle the American economic, political and social systems and rebuild them from scratch — according to Marxist principles.

BLM and Antifa: Death to America

It is a fundamental human trait to locate the source of anything bad happening and try to neutralize it. There are, however, times that the source of the harm cannot be pinpointed or when successfully recognized, it cannot be eliminated. Failure to recognize the source or neutralize it can devastate our cities.

The current rioters’ sense of victimization is a reaction that frequently goes hand-in-hand with displaced aggression on a convenient safe target. The aggression can be verbal, physical, or a combination of the two.

The longstanding slogan “Death to America and Israel” vilifying the U.S. and Israel started in Iran by the occupying rulers. No ordinary Iranian has ever used that filthy phrase. When the media unknowingly attributes or refers that Iranians on the anniversary of the Islamic Republic chanted Death to America, they are being deceitful. They are not making a distinction between the people of Iran and the regime. Iranian people respect both the US and Israel. These paid regime’s apparatus and agents, like (ANTIFA and BLM) who incessantly and by the order of Ayatollah Khamenei keep using the phrase “Death to America” on special occasions and anniversaries perhaps for psychological reasons.

If you look at both videos, you will see the similarities between the two. Antifa and BLM chanting Death to America. It is obvious that the Islamic Republic of Iran is very involved in training these domestic terrorists. After Forty-one years, it is easy to figure out their modus operandi…

Here is the disturbing question, what if this violent domestic group known as Antifa offers perfect cover for jihad and secretly works with the Islamic organizations as an arm of violent jihad? On numerous occasions, Antifa has openly threatened to massacre American patriots and even President Trump. This group is one of Obama’s legacies, created to inflict more pain on the American people. “Eight years of Obama’s leadership has left America demonstrably weaker and more divided. Rather than the promised “healing”-racial and otherwise-the Obama era frayed the ties that bind us.”

Breonna Taylor’s Family to Get $12 Million & Louisville Police Reforms in Wrongful Death Settlement

Louisville, Kentucky has reached a $12 million settlement with the family of Breonna Taylor, a medic killed in a “no-knock” raid earlier this year, sparking major Black Lives Matter protests.

The financial part of the settlement, which also includes police reforms, was announced on Tuesday by Sam Aguilar, the attorney representing Taylor’s family in their wrongful death civil suit against the city.

Taylor, a 26-year-old emergency medical technician, was shot and killed by police in March as they were raiding her apartment on a warrant related to a drug investigation. Taylor’s boyfriend, Kenneth Walker, fired on police when they entered the home on the “no knock” warrant, saying he believed them to be intruders. One officer was shot in the leg, and Taylor was killed by returning fire from police. No drugs were found in the home.

CDC Plans ‘Critical Race Theory’ Training Despite Trump Ban

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention is moving ahead with a “critical race theory” training program in violation of President Trump’s recent executive order.

Christopher Rufo, the director of the Discovery Institute’s Center on Wealth and Poverty in Seattle, said he’s obtained leaked documents that outline the CDC’s plan to “examine the mechanisms of systemic racism” and address “White supremacist ideology.”

“The final session teaches CDC employees how to become activists,” he said in a thread on Twitter.

The employees will be encouraged to join an “Anti-Racism Collaborative with eight Collective Action Teams” focused on “communications,” making scientific publications “anti-racist” and influencing “policy and legislation.”

In general terms, critical race theory is a post-modern theoretical framework rooted in Marxist principles that views individuals through the lens of oppressed or oppressor based largely on their skin color.

From this blanket of surveillance law enforcement then try to figure out which phones may be tied to suspects or possible witnesses.

Injectable Biochip for SARS-Cov-2 Detection Near FDA Approval

Hydrogel is a DARPA invention that involves nanotechnology and nanobots. This “bioelectronic interface” is part of the COVID-19 mRNA vaccines’ delivery system.

The biochip being developed by Profusa is similar to the proposed COVID-19 mRNA vaccines in that it utilizes hydrogel. The implant is the size of a grain of rice, and connects to an online database that will keep track of changes in your biochemistry and a wide range of biometrics, such as heart and respiratory rate and much more.

A September 2019 paper describes how the injectable sensor can help improve monitoring for peripheral artery disease. However, while it might be convenient, this kind of technology will also have immediate ramifications for our privacy. Who will collect and have access to all this data? Who will be responsible for protecting it? How will it be used, and when? As noted in a SteemKR article discussing the implants:

“Along with the advent of in-body nanotechnology, and sensors which tie the human body to an artificial intelligence platform, the possibilities for misuse by totalitarian governments has not been lost on technology watchdogs. With advanced biosensors, artificial intelligence may be able to read the subject’s every mood and activity, heart rate, respiratory rate, body temperature, even sexual activity.”

Judge Sets Bail to $1 Million for Lancaster Protesters; Lt. Gov. Fetterman Calls it ‘Unconstitutional’

A Lancaster County judge set bail at $1 million for some of the protesters arrested for arson and riot-related charges early Monday morning following the police shooting of 27-year-old Ricardo Munoz.

The protesters are each charged with felony arson, riot and vandalism charges, among other protest-related charges. At least six of the eight people arrested Monday morning had bail set at $1 million by Magisterial District Judge Bruce Roth on Monday night, according to court documents. One of the protesters was not eligible for bail, and another person’s docket had not yet been updated.

An additional five people — four adults and one juvenile — were arrested on Monday after further investigation, police announced Tuesday. They are still waiting for a judge to set their bail.

Kennedy Jr.: CHD Sue Facebook, Zuckerberg and 3 Fact-Checkers

Censorship continues to run rampant in the U.S. and elsewhere, particularly when it comes to information regarding public health. It was for this reason, along with their unscrupulous data mining efforts, that I left Facebook in 2019.

The social media outlet, however, continues to censor posts from organizations seeking to share health truths, including Children’s Health Defense (CHD), whose mission is to end childhood health epidemics by eliminating harmful exposures, holding those responsible accountable and establishing safeguards to prevent further harms.

As a result, the nonprofit organization, which was founded by Robert F. Kennedy Jr., sued Facebook, its CEO Mark Zuckerberg and three of its “fact-checking” partners for censoring their truthful public health posts and fraudulently misrepresenting and defaming CHD…

The documentary “Plandemic” by Mikki Willis, which features Judy Mikovits, Ph.D., a cellular and molecular biologist whose research showed that many vaccines are contaminated with gammaretroviruses, thanks to the fact that they use viruses grown in contaminated animal cell lines, is a prime example.

The film has been banned from social media platforms and hidden by Google to the extent that if you do an online search for it, all you find are dozens of pages with articles calling it a hoax, a fraud or the dreaded old “conspiracy theory.”

Twitter also falsely labels Mercola article links as unsafe and malicious, warning potential readers my site might steal passwords and other personal data, or install malware on your computer, which is absolutely false.

On the contrary, my site now has a firewall preventing Google analytic scripts from running on our pages, thereby protecting you from Google’s intrusive data mining. Unfortunately, by declaring our pages dangerous, they successfully suppress about 95% of our Twitter views.

In an op-ed for Newsweek, Professor Sergiu Klainerman wrote, “By yielding to the manifest falsehood that Princeton is a racist institution, he makes it impossible for him to defend Princeton’s values.”

“Princeton is not in the least racist,” Klainerman continued. “Most people know this. Certainly the president does, and I suspect most of the signatories of the July 4th letter do as well.”

U.S. Federal Judge Strikes Down Pennsylvania’s COVID Mandates as Unconstitutional

A federal judge ruled on Monday that Pennsylvania Gov. Tom Wolf’s and Secretary of Health Rachel Levine’s coronavirus orders, which shut down the state, closed businesses and limited gatherings, were unconstitutional.

U.S. District Judge William Stickman IV agreed with the plaintiffs claim that Wolf’s business shutdown and stay-at-home orders violated certain constitutional rights.

The plaintiffs include Butler, Fayette, Greene and Washington counties, four Republican lawmakers and several small businesses in those counties.

Stickman said in his opinion that COVID-19 orders from Wolf and Pennsylvania Secretary of Health Rachel Levine violated and continue to violate the First Amendment right to freedom of assembly and the due process and equal protection clauses of the 14th Amendment.

Stickman wrote that he believes Wolf and state Secretary of Health Rachel Levine:

“undertook their actions in a well-intentioned effort to protect Pennsylvania from the virus. However, good intentions toward a laudable end are not alone enough to uphold governmental action against a constitutional challenge.”

Stickman also wrote that the government engaged in a dangerous strategy where rights were taken away.

“Yes, its a novel virus but its very closely related to at least four other viruses that circulate freely in the population, which are all corona viruses and contribute to the common cold, so bluntly it was naive of them (government etc) to assume everyone was susceptible.”

Matteo Salvini’s European Vision

If Italy held an election at the moment, the polls recommend Matteo Salvini would turn out to be the subsequent prime minister. However on a balmy night in late August, the Lega chief appears as if he’d be extra comfy on the seashore than the Chigi Palace. The informal look—boat sneakers, shorts and a white button-down—belies his seriousness. Mr. Salvini, 47, says he held 5 rallies that day, with yet one more deliberate for the night. Though nationwide elections aren’t scheduled for one more three years, he doesn’t imagine he’ll have to attend that lengthy for the federal government to break down. And he already has concepts for what he’d do within the high job.

Mr. Salvini’s clearest path to energy runs by means of a center-right coalition with the conservative Fratelli d’Italia and Silvio Berlusconi’s pro-business Forza Italia. His personal get together has been described as nationalist, populist, conservative, far-right and even fascist. “In Italy the left-right, fascist-communist distinctions don’t rely a lot,” he says in Italian. “I feel that the Lega is way past ideologies.” However he doesn’t reject all labels: “I can settle for ‘sovereigntists.’ That’s, the Italian id, its tradition, historical past, legal guidelines, faith. I also can settle for ‘populist,’ which some individuals take into account an insult, however I feel it’s a praise.”

He additionally could be a pragmatist. Lega was based in 1991 as Lega Nord—the Northern League—a regional get together targeted on in search of extra autonomy for the nation’s wealthier north. Mr. Salvini has led the get together since 2013 and gave it nationwide attraction by emphasizing strict opposition to unlawful immigration and skepticism of the European Union. “Till I die, I will probably be a federalist,” he says. “But we should unite the nation with a purpose to compete with the others. In any other case the northern areas alone can’t be profitable.”

In 2018 Lega rode Europe’s migrant disaster, and Brussels’ insufficient response, to a power-sharing settlement with the far-left 5 Star Motion, which lasted a bit over a 12 months. Mr. Salvini turned deputy prime minister and inside minister in June 2018 and rapidly moved to close down Italy’s coasts to migrant vessels. Sea arrivals fell to 60 in February 2019 from practically 4,000 the month earlier than he got here to energy, based on United Nations data. The numbers rose once more throughout his tenure however didn’t get better to earlier highs. Mr. Salvini’s succesful however controversial administration generated criticism on humanitarian grounds from Brussels and the Vatican. It additionally made Lega Italy’s hottest get together…

During a debate in the European Parliament about the rule of law and LGBT rights in Poland, Conservative Law and Justice (PiS) MEP Patryk Jaki slammed what he said was a left-wing attempt to attack freedom of speech and impose its will on the sovereign Polish nation.

Erdogan’s Ottoman Aspirations

And how to stop them.

The growth of Islamism in Turkey is the work primarily of one man, President Recep Tayyip Erdogan. In power as prime minister and president since 2003, he has shown time and time again that he is an anti-Christian and anti-Western despot dedicated to removing the legacy of Kemal Ataturk, the founder of modern Turkey, who spent decades building a pro-European and secular Turkey.

One of Mr. Erdogan’s most effective weapons is people. In March 2017, he spoke to supporters in the Turkish city of Eskisehir about their duty to have children. He urged this duty especially on Turks living in Europe, because having children is “an act of revenge against the West’s ‘injustices’.”

In China, Smart Locks Are Being Used to Track Citizens and Enforce Lockdowns

The Chinese Communist Party has found a new way of controlling the population with smart locks. These locks are becoming a mandatory requirement for residential properties under the pretext of increasing safety and preventing the spread of the coronavirus.

However, in reality, smart locks are being used by the government to increase surveillance. With preventing the spread of coronavirus being the main promoted narrative, smart locks are giving the government more data they can use to control residents. These locks, which require an ID, facial recognition, or a smartphone app, are linked to the various big data platforms run by the government.

The high-tech locks are slowly being introduced in residential properties in various parts of China.

Unusual Features of the SARS-Cov-2 Genome Suggesting Sophisticated Laboratory Modification Rather Than Natural Evolution and Delineation of Its Probable Synthetic Route

The COVID-19 pandemic caused by the novel coronavirus SARS-CoV-2 has led to over 910,000 deaths worldwide and unprecedented decimation of the global economy. Despite its tremendous impact, the origin of SARS-CoV-2 has remained mysterious and controversial. The natural origin theory, although widely accepted, lacks substantial support. The alternative theory that the virus may have come from a research laboratory is, however, strictly censored on peer-reviewed scientific journals. Nonetheless, SARS-CoV-2 shows biological characteristics that are inconsistent with a naturally occurring, zoonotic virus.

In this report, we describe the genomic, structural, medical, and literature evidence, which, when considered together, strongly contradicts the natural origin theory. The evidence shows that SARS-CoV-2 should be a laboratory product created by using bat coronaviruses ZC45 and/or ZXC21 as a template and/or backbone. Building upon the evidence, we further postulate a synthetic route for SARS-CoV-2, demonstrating that the laboratory-creation of this coronavirus is convenient and can be accomplished in approximately six months.

Our work emphasizes the need for an independent investigation into the relevant research laboratories. It also argues for a critical look into certain recently published data, which, albeit problematic, was used to support and claim a natural origin of SARS-CoV-2. From a public health perspective, these actions are necessary as knowledge of the origin of SARS-CoV-2 and of how the virus entered the human population are of pivotal importance in the fundamental control of the COVID-19 pandemic as well as in preventing similar, future pandemics.

Australia is a Full Scale Pilot Test for the New World Order

Several journalists and content creators have noticed that Australia looks like the most totalitarian police state that has existed in recent history. It has become a full-scale pilot test for the elitists to see how well they can implement the New World Order.

Australians have been subjected to some of the most horrendous basic human rights and dignity violations during this entire scamdemic.

The elitists are using Australia to test out these authoritarian measures, such as getting the public used to a police state in which the military and police both patrol the streets ready to commit violence against other humans for refusing to quarantine when not sick or not wearing their New World Order issued muzzle…I mean, face mask.

“These guys know full well what they are doing. They are psychopaths, but they aren’t stupid,” says Brian in the above video. The politicians are redistributing both wealth and power away from the public and consolidating it into their own hands. We are in big trouble if we cannot get the military and the police who are committing violence on behalf of the tyrants to realize what they are doing to humanity.

All of this is over 17 new cases of COVID-19. This absolutely horrifying that people continue to buy this scam.

Greece said Sunday it hoped thousands of asylum seekers left homeless by fires at Europe’s largest migrant camp on the island of Lesbos could be rehoused within a week.

The announcement came as a new so-called tent city at Kara Tepe opened to the first people.

At least 300 people were expected to move into the 3,000-capacity camp by the end of the day on Sunday.

Greek Migration Minister Notis Mitarachi told reporters Sunday that: “In five days the operation will be concluded. Everybody will be inside the new camp.”

But a large number of migrants, who were residents of the destroyed Moria camp, have refused to enter the new facility, demanding asylum to other EU countries or better living conditions.

Lesbos: Five Migrants Arrested for Fire at Moria Camp

Homeless refugees lament being forced to stay on Greek island

ATHENS — Five migrants have been arrested on charges that they started the fire that destroyed the Moria migrant camp — Europe’s largest — on the island of Lesbos, the Greek government announced Tuesday. “Five young foreigners have been arrested and a sixth who has been identified is still being sought,” said Greek Civil Protection Minister Michalis Chrysohoidis.

‘We don’t want another Moria’, say Lesvos migrants

ATHENS — Thousands of refugees and migrants who were left homeless last week by huge fires which destroyed the Moria reception center where they were staying are pleading for an alternative solution to staying on the island.

Over 12,000 people, including families with small children, have been living in makeshift tents on the side of busy roads and in nearby fields for five days following the devastating blazes which ripped through the Moria facility.

Greece’s Prime Minister has promised that “a new, permanent migrant reception centre on Lesvos” will replace the overcrowded and squalid refugee camp destroyed last week — calling for closer European involvement, while Migration Minister Notis Mitarakis has also ruled out the transfer of people to the mainland, indicating that such a move could spark unrest at camps on other islands.

A temporary camp has already been set up on an army firing range to provide shelter for those sleeping rough, with the priority given to families with children, while the government continues to plan to build a new reception and identification center, one where residents will not be allowed to come and go freely, thus bolstering the sense of security among locals on Lesvos. But, for all of these efforts in the wake of a truly miserable situation, the answer on the ground from refugees in Lesvos is that they would rather be anywhere else but there.

“We do not have food, we do not have much water, but we prefer the road to the camp,” said a group of Afghans, quoted by Greek national newspaper EFSYN. The migrants added that they “do not trust the police”. “I have been in Lesvos for two years, now I finally want to go to Athens or Thessaloniki, where there are jobs and we can find a house,” EFSYN quoted a 30-year-old Afghan man named Sahram as saying.

Miserable scenes of babies and toddlers sleeping on the side of the streets have shocked the world and brought Lesvos and Greece into the spotlight once more concerning the ongoing migrant crisis. And the situation is not changing quickly. The army are handing out food and water but there is also a heavy police presence with skirmishes breaking out between groups of migrants and riot forces. The police continue to stop migrants from moving towards the main town of Mytilene, even using tear gas over the weekend.

Until late on Sunday night, approximately 350 tents with a capacity of 6-8 people each were set up in the new center with the assistance of the army, from a total of 600 tents which were donated by the UNHCR. In parallel, there’s also the troublesome situation with positive Covid-19 cases — the cause of the initial trouble and fires. Before the fires broke out, 35 positive cases had been confirmed, and then when restrictive measures were put in place, the camp was set on fire. Up until Sunday evening, there were 12 fresh positive Covid-19 cases confirmed, and all of the people have been quarantined.

Karl Marx, The Satanic Prophet of Darkness

Socialism is precisely the religion that must overwhelm Christianity… In the new order, Socialism will triumph by first capturing the culture via infiltration of schools, universities, churches and the media by transforming the consciousness of society. —Antonio Gramsci (1915) Italian Marxist philosopher

The mainstreaming of Marxism in US colleges and universities 30 years ago is now showing devastating results to the Republic. Karl Marx is the satanic prophet of darkness for the founders of Black Lives Matter (BLM), Antifa and every other communist organization.

BLM has now led to a record number of mass shootings. Mass shootings are inescapably tied to the BLM violence that crippled police, wrecked public safety, and led socialist democrats to call for an end to cops.

“The BLM riots aren’t just a struggle session or cancel culture. They’re doing a lot more than terrorizing diners or burning down stores. The BLM riots and movement are killing people.Democrats had spent years falsely claiming that guns, rather than criminals, kill people. Now they’ve moved on to blaming gun violence on social ills that will be remedied by defunding police and shifting even more money into the same broken and corrupt welfare state.” See Daniel Greenfield’s article, Black Lives Matter Led to Record Number of Mass Shootings.

The radical anarchists who are burning, looting and murdering are embracing Marxist theoretician and Italian communist, Antonio Gramsci who called for the very elimination of Judeo-Christian societal norms and morals in order to institute socialism, i.e. Marxist communism.

Domestic terrorists have now started fires in Washington, Oregon and California with losses of 3.1 million acres burned in California, 954,000 acres lost in Oregon and 500,00 in Washington state. Thirty-five people are dead, and many more are missing. This is satanic evil perpetrated by those who hate God.

Melinda Gates Warns Social Media Platforms Are Due a “Reckoning” For Not Censoring Enough

If one Gates wasn’t enough, proselytizing his ideas on anything from technology to education to viruses — there’s another.

The wife of Bill Gates, Melinda, revealed for Axios on HBO that she is extremely unhappy with the state of social media today, which she accuses of spreading disinformation, and warns they might be in for “a reckoning.”

Her dissatisfaction with what’s allowed on the internet these days in terms of speech is driven by personal reasons, as Bill Gates, although a darling of corporate media, often comes under fire on social media for his policies and ideas around the coronavirus pandemic.

Obamas Under Fire for Silence Over Netflix Film “Cuties”

Barack and Michelle Obama are coming under increased scrutiny for their silence regarding the Netflix airing of the foreign film “Cuties,” which has caused public uproar over the sexualization of underage girls.

The Obama ties to Netflix run deep. Both are Netflix producers, having inked a lucrative $50 million deal with the company last year. Additionally, Obama confidant and former National Security Adviser Susan Rice sits on the Netflix board of directors. Ted Sarandos, one of the Netflix co-CEOs, was a prominent fundraiser for Obama in 2012 and his wife served as his ambassador to the Bahamas.

Poland Must Fight Political Correctness and LGBT Ideology or Face the Fate of Other Western Nations, Says PiS Leader Kaczynski.

Unless Poland defends itself against ideological aggression, it will meet the same fate as many European countries, argues Law and Justice (PiS) party leader Jaroslaw Kaczynski.

The PiS leaders says that Western Christian civilization is the most humane in history and that attempts to persuade the public that the abnormality presented by LGBT activists is the ‘new normal’ threatens to damage the fundamental basis of that civilization.

This is why he contends there is a need to “sensibly combat” those who want to undermine Christianity and the traditional family.

Twitter Mob Calls for Scientific Journal to be Canceled After Studying Why Black People Face More COVID Risk

JAMA, an international peer-reviewed medical journal, has been attacked by some Twitter users for publishing a study entitled, “Racial/Ethnic Variation in Nasal Gene Expression of Transmembrane Serine Protease 2 (TMPRSS2).”

This is one of the many scientific papers dedicated to researching coronavirus. But the way the journal announced it on Twitter, by referencing “Black individuals,” has caused what looks like a knee-jerk reaction among the activist-prone subset of users, with some posts implying racism as they called for the study to be “canceled” by the journal.

  1. Germany will take in 2,750. In the first tranche. Not 1,500. Then of course there will be relatives who will be flown in. (One woman flew in 44 relatives. Sadly, I can no longer find the news report source to this. Believe what you will.)

    Merkels Flüchtlingsplan „gefährlich“? Griechen reagieren auf Medienbericht
    https://www.focus.de/politik/ausland/moria-merkel-und-seehofer-einigen-sich-deutschland-nimmt-rund-1500-weitere-fluechtlinge-auf_id_12409411.html

    Merkel is destroying the whole of EUROPE.

  2. It’s perhaps not easy to find in this text, scroll down:

    “Scholz und Seehofer einigen sich – Deutschland nimmt insgesamt 2750 Flüchtlinge auf”

    ENGLISH

    “Scholz (finance minister) and Seehofer (home secretary) agree to take 2750 refugees.”

    NOTE

    “refugees” means illegal immigrants, Muslim invaders.

  3. “In the politically charged debate, the European Commission was represented by its liberal vice-president, Vera Jourova, who once again lashed out at Warsaw’s policies, saying that Polish judicial reform remained a concern and the independence of Polish judges was not guaranteed at all.”
    I’m ashamed of this woman, as most Czechs support Hungary and Poland and she’s going against her own homeland.

  4. A new migrant camp is opening in Kent, showing British people that the government is “getting tough” and you won’t just get a 5-star hotel for breaking the law by crossing the channel instead of applying legally…or at least that’s what is being advertised.

    What it really is: a more private place to pay and house these people to get it out of sight form the public and more importantly away from Farage’s verbal wrath, albeit in cheaper accommodations. It’s for processing their asylum applications by the way, which is what worries me more — they are expecting to be processing people in large numbers, no one will be turned away at sea at least for a very long time. It’s recognition that this is somehow a legitimate way to claim asylum even though there are many legal ways to do so. Lawyers prevent any deportations that occur.

    https://www.google.com/amp/s/www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-8737217/amp/Deportation-18-migrants-blocked-11th-hour-lawyers-lodge-human-rights-claims.html

    Just put today, 14 were prevented from being deported back to Germany and 10 back to France. Inevitably a large number of Mutti’s latest importation will end up in dinghies crossing the channel, why they are all desperate to get here I don’t know, but it’s a fittingly sardonic gift from our Saxon cousins across the pond.

  5. The Revolution won’t happen with guns, rather it will happen incrementally, year by year, generation by generation. We will gradually infiltrate their educational institutions and their political offices, transforming them slowly into Marxist entities as we move towards universal egalitarianism.
