Gates of Vienna News Feed 9/20/2020

A woman suspected of sending an envelope addressed to President Trump that contained ricin was arrested by the US border patrol at the crossing from Canada in Buffalo, NY. Canadian authorities believe the poisoned letter originated in Canada, but it is not yet clear whether the arrested woman is a Canadian citizen.

In other news, in remarks made in Philadelphia, former Vice President Joe Biden said that 200 million people would die of COVID-19 by the time he finished his speech, and it would all be President Trump’s fault.

“Protesters” In Philadelphia Chase Down and Assault Random Citizens for Being “Nazis”

Just when we thought we had seen peak boredom from America’s misinformed Marxists disguised as some kind of anti-fascist freedom fighters, three new videos out of Philadelphia have surfaced showing that now, more than ever, there’s too many art students and unemployed millennials that need to find hobbies.

The first video shows a group of several people chasing a man through a park.

“Holy shit you made a bad mistake,” one ‘protester’ says before another, cloaked in a hood of what appears to be a $500 REI jacket, tries to kick the man they’re chasing and then falls over.

“This is Ludicrous” — Newt Gingrich Slams ‘The Soros Cover Up’

Americans can’t let Twitter noise overwhelm political reality…

I have been watching a truly curious phenomenon over the past few days.

It seems there is suddenly a movement in media to silence anyone who speaks out against George Soros — and, specifically, his funding of radical prosecutors seeking to change the criminal justice system by simply ignoring certain crimes.

This happened to me personally this week while I was being interviewed on Fox’s Outnumbered. When I brought up Soros’s plan to get pro-criminal, anti-police prosecutors elected across the country, two of the show’s participants interrupted me and forcefully asserted that Soros was not involved.

12 Steps to Create Your Own Pandemic

12 Steps to Create Your Own Pandemic (Or How to Turn a Harmless Virus into Boundless Profits for You and Your Friends)

Imagine that you had the resources and influence sufficient to create a global pandemic, what would you need to do? How would you get started? And how best to turn it to your advantage and boost your profits?

We have the answers right here.

A simple 12 step plan.

1. Find some vague criteria for what constitutes the symptoms that you want people to look for. Anything subjective that a lot of people can identify with is ideal. Let us take memory problems and/or confusion + a few common ones from the Covid list. Tiredness, aches and pains are common and subjective enough. (For covid19 the symptoms are: fever, dry cough, tiredness. Less common symptoms: aches and pains, sore throat, diarrhoea, loss of taste or smell, a rash, or discolouration of fingers or toes)

It would be a good idea to take something that is very common in old people so that we can use death from old age as proof of the lethality of the new virus.

2. Then we would need something biological to test. Any RNA sequence would do, as long as it is not present in the whole population. If it were, someone might claim herd immunity very quickly. Actually it could be an RNA sequence that does not really exist in humans but something that could exist as contamination in labs, e.g. in dust or water.

That would be enough for a RT qPCR test to pick up as a false positive. Many RT PCRs have false positive rates of 3-5 % and that would be plenty to create a scare. (When it comes to Covid, the false positive rate is impossible to know for sure, since we don’t have a gold standard to check against, but for many other similar tests, the average false positive rate is over 3%. And different labs are testing for different sequences.

We can count on over-stressed labs to be more prone to contamination than labs taking part in research knowing they will be checked for accuracy, the ones that gave over 3% false positives. Maybe the error rate for the average stressed lab is as high as 8%. BMJ counts 5% as a reasonable estimate. With 8% we would have all positive tests in the US explained by false positives)

3. Then we are all set to go. We just have to claim that we have discovered a new cluster of symptoms and that is related to a new RNA sequence. It starts with memory loss, and confusion. In other words this is a neurotoxic virus, and it leads to death in all the ways old people can die, by strokes, heart attacks, pneumonia, kidney failure, sepsis, organ failure, dehydration.

It doesnt matter if the patient was close to deaths door anyway, because of existing problems. We can always claim that without our new virus, they would not have died. Who could counter that?( just like Covid; People die from all kinds of disorders that they already had before the got the Covid test).

4. By some miracle we have already discovered exactly the virus that is responsible among the millions of different viruses that exist in any cubic centimeter of air. So we already have a RT PCR test read to go. This makes us look like very competent researchers. Of course we have bought stock in the major testing labs ahead of time.

We’ve bought stocks in the biggest vaccine manufacturers also of course. That will be the biggest money maker finally, hopefully for years since it will be difficult to get antibodies to something that doesn’t really exist.

Baltimore Teacher Fired When Anti-Trump Facebook Post Went Viral

A history teacher at John Carroll in Baltimore was fired when a two-year-old photo showing her waving the middle finger at a Trump-Pence campaign banner resurfaced online.

The school administration, which also changed its social media policy, claimed the photo was not the reason for the termination — yet, few are convinced.

Najia Stallworth, who has been teaching since 1996, was fired from the Bel Air Catholic School that hired her in the summer. She claims the photo showing her waving the gesture at a Trump-Pence bumper sticker was taken by her husband two years ago after a concert they had attended.

California Judge Strikes Down Trump’s WeChat Ban Over First Amendment Concerns

In what has become a sideshow to the TikTok drama consuming the business press, President Trump gave his “blessing” to the proposed deal to spin off TikTok’s global business into a US-based company, averting a Sunday night deadline that would have forced Apple and Google to remove the app from their app stores, an American judge has blocked Trump’s attempt to force WeChat from the US market.

US Magistrate Judge Laurel Beeler, a judge based in — where else? — San Francisco, argued that the ban raised serious questions related to the constitution’s first amendment, guaranteeing free speech in the US. The Trump Administration, meanwhile, alleges that the app threatens American national security by creating a conduit for Beijing to siphon up the private data of American citizens.

GOP Senators Introduce Bill to Make Attacking Law Enforcement Officers a Federal Crime

Over a dozen Republican senators introduced a bill this week called the Protect and Serve Act which would make attacking a law enforcement officer a federal crime.

The bill proposes:

  • Making it a federal crime to knowingly cause, or attempt to cause, serious bodily injury to a law enforcement officer. Offenders are subject to imprisonment for up to 10 years.
  • An offender could receive a life sentence if a death results from the offense, or the offense includes kidnapping, attempted kidnapping, or attempted murder.

The law would apply to federal officers as well as state and local officers in cases where the federal government can establish jurisdiction.

Bottom line: these Soros-backed prosecutors are making the nonstop riots possible because they refuse to prosecute the rioters.-More…

‘Virtual School’ Dangers: The Hazards of a Police State Education During COVID-19

Apart from the technological logistics of ensuring that millions of students across the country have adequate computer and internet access, consider the Fourth Amendment ramifications of having students attend school online via video classes from the privacy of their homes.

Suddenly, you’ve got government officials (in this case, teachers or anyone at the school on the other end of that virtual connection) being allowed carte blanche visual access to the inside of one’s private home without a warrant.

Anything those school officials see-anything they hear-anything they photograph or record-during that virtual visit becomes fair game for scrutiny and investigation not just by school officials but by every interconnected government agency to which that information can be relayed: the police, social services, animal control, the Department of Homeland Security, you name it.

After all, this is the age of overcriminalization, when the federal criminal code is so vast that the average American unknowingly commits about three federal felonies per day, a U.S. Attorney can find a way to charge just about anyone with violating federal law.

It’s a train wreck just waiting to happen.

Woman Suspected of Mailing Ricin to White House Arrested at U.S.-Canada Border

RCMP says ‘initial information … suggests that the letter originated in Canada’

Three U.S. law enforcement officials say a woman suspected of sending an envelope containing the poison ricin, which was addressed to White House and President Donald Trump, has been arrested at the New York-Canada border.

The officials say the woman was taken into custody by U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) officers and is expected to face federal charges. The officials were not authorized to discuss the ongoing investigation publicly and spoke on condition of anonymity.

Aaron Bowker of the CBP confirmed with CBC News that the arrest took place at the Peace Bridge in Buffalo and that the individual was travelling from Canada into the U.S.

The letter had been intercepted earlier this week before it reached the White House.

An RCMP spokesperson told CBC News on Saturday that it was assisting the FBI in the investigation and that “initial information from the investigation suggests that the letter originated in Canada.”

New Report Says 5,000 Turkish-Backed Syrian Rebels Deployed to Libya

by Alex Kassidiaris

According to a Janes report from early September approximately 5,000 Turkish-backed Syrian mercenaries have been deployed to Libya to support the Government of National Accord (GNA).

The report quotes sources from the US Africa Command and the US Office of the Inspector General. The same sources reveal that dozens of military advisors of the Turkish company SADAT are also in Libya, training the Syrian fighters and monitoring the day-to-day operations of Turkish-affiliated militias.

Rumors around SADAT have started circulating shortly after the publication of the report, and some recent comments of the company’s President Adnan Tanriverdi for the Daily Telegraph did not provide any further clarity. We shall now have a brief look into the company that according to many commentators could be the Turkish counterpart to the Russian Wagner Group on the Libyan front.

Who is Adnan Tanriverdi?

KYIV, Ukraine — Tens of thousands of Belarusians calling for the country’s authoritarian president to resign marched through the capital Sunday as the country’s wave of protests entered its seventh week.

Hundreds of soldiers blocked off the center of Minsk, deploying water cannons and armored personnel carriers and erecting barbed wire barriers. Protests also took place in several other cities, including Brest and Grodno.

The crowd in Minsk included about 100,000 people, said Ales Bialiatski, head of the Viasna human rights organization. He said dozens of demonstrators were arrested in Minsk and Grodno.

“The Scene Was Horrific”: Persecution of Christians, August 2020

Rape and Forced Conversions of Christians in Pakistan

In late August, Maira Shahbaz, a 14-year-old Christian girl, escaped from the home of Mohamad Nakash—her kidnapper, whom the Lahore High Court had recently ruled is her legitimate husband despite her objections—and fled to a police station, where she gave testimony, including on how she was being “forced into prostitution” and “filmed while by being raped,” with threats that the tape would be published unless she complies with the demands of her rapist/husband and friends. “They threatened to murder my whole family,” the girl said. “My life was at stake in the hands of the accused and Nakash repeatedly raped me forcefully.” In an interview, a friend of Maira’s family described how the family is in hiding and constantly on the run, adding:

“Maira is traumatized. She cannot speak. We want to take her to the doctor, but we are afraid we might be spotted. We are all very frightened, but we place our trust in God.”

Thai Protesters Challenge Monarchy as Huge Protests Escalate

BANGKOK (Reuters) — Openly challenging the monarchy of Thai King Maha Vajiralongkorn, thousands of protesters marched in Bangkok on Sunday to present demands that include a call for reforms to curb his powers.

Protesters have grown ever bolder during two months of demonstrations against Thailand’s palace and military-dominated establishment, breaking a longstanding taboo on criticising the monarchy — which is illegal under lese majeste laws.

The Royal Palace was not immediately available for comment. The king, who spends much of his time in Europe, is not in Thailand now.

Taiwan: The Threat That the World Ignores

China openly threatens Taiwan with invasion. The world assumes it will never follow through. Yet as Beijing flexes its muscles at home and abroad, is that being dangerously complacent?

Taiwan’s Foreign Minister Joseph Wu is ringing the alarm, hoping that the world will pay attention to the profound threat emanating from China.

“The threat is very real and therefore Taiwan’s preparation is also very serious,” he told DW. “We are trying to deal with the military threat, day in and day out.”

China’s aggressive military probing has been going on for years — an unending stress test for the democratic island it claims as its territory.

Spider-Like Venom Found in Australian Stinging Trees

(CNN) Australia is synonymous with venomous spiders and snakes — but scientists have discovered new toxins in what they label a “truly venomous” plant.

A team of researchers from the University of Queensland have discovered a previously unidentified neurotoxin that is similar to the venom found in spiders and cone snails.

Unlike its American and European counterparts, being stung by a dendrocnide tree — which means “stinging tree” — can cause pain that lasts for days — or even weeks.

At least 50 “boomerang” migrants have been granted asylum in Britain, despite having been previously rejected as fraudulent and deported.

The number of known boomerang migrants is more than double the figure for 2018, when 19 migrants were given asylum after being removed and coming back again.

EU to Push for Radical Changes to Existing Migration Rules for All Nations

The European Union is working to repeal the Dublin Regulation, which regulates asylum cases within the EU, and replace it with a system that will see migrants shared across Europe, suggested the European Commission President Ursula von der Leyen in a speech in the European Parliament on Wednesday.

“We will abolish the Dublin rules and replace them with a new European migration management system,” said von der Leyen.

The current Dublin Regulation stipulates that asylum seekers must have their application processed in the country where they first arrive, but that could soon change.

If the European Commission chooses to force migration quotas on member states, it is likely to face substantial pushback from countries opposed to illegal migration like Hungary and Poland, which recently joined five other European countries in a letter to the Commission voicing their opposition to migrant quotas.

A majority of Germans have expressed concern that the German government taking in large numbers of migrants from Greece after the Moria migrant camp fire could trigger a new wave of migration.

The German government, under Chancellor Angela Merkel, pledged to take in 1,500 migrants following the Moria fire, seemingly started by migrant arsonists, that left around 13,000 of them homeless on the island of Lesbos.

Netflix’s “Cuties”: It’s Not the First Attempt by Hollywood to Normalize Pedophilia

Hollywood has proven itself over the years to be a haven for evil people. Not so much in terms of the celebrities (though many of them are narcissistic and sociopathic), but more in terms of the people that control the industry. The entire edifice was designed as a haven for subhuman tendencies. They have celebrated this openly in the past, though these days they pretend as if they are cleaning house.

The machine of Hollywood is a vampire’s trap, a shining beacon luring in talented (or at least hopeful and starstruck) people, draining them of all life and then spitting them out once the feeding has finished. This is particularly true of children, and the number of cases of child abuse in the industry is staggering. If it were any other business, the media would be up in arms in terms of the number of convictions and allegations. If the fast food industry had as many pedo charges as Hollywood, the MSM would be writing thousands of articles a year admonishing the burger barn molestation epidemic. But when it comes to Hollywood, mainstream journalists rabidly defend the people at the top and attack critics as “conspiracy theorists”.

The propensity for psychopaths to value children as their most sought after targets is well known. It’s not necessarily always sexual, sometimes it’s only physical or mental abuse. But, children are a delicacy to them none-the-less. What could be more enthralling to evil than to destroy the life of a purely innocent person and take their childhood away?

It is only in recent years that pedophilia in Hollywood has been taken more seriously by the general public. The Hollywood elites that dominate high level corporate positions have been the purveyors and controllers of America’s cultural expression for almost a century, and yet they are rarely subject to scrutiny. It is their own actions that have created the recent groundswell movement to root out organized child abuse…

I have now watched portions of this film, including dramatic story scenes to get a fair sense of the total content as well as come clips of the notorious scenes that have enraged the public. And, I can say WITHOUT A DOUBT, this film is in fact child pornagraphy according to the Department of Justice’s legal definition. A warning — I do NOT recommend watching this movie yourself, but if you do, be warned that the content is highly upsetting.

If you heard from the mainstream media that the reaction to this film was “overblown” and part of a “right wing conspiracy”; then I’m here to tell you that you were lied to.

Solar Panels Generate Mountains of Waste

The problem of solar panel waste is now becoming evident. As environmental journalist Emily Folk admits in Renewable Energy Magazine, “when talking about renewable energy, the topic of waste does not often appear.” She attributes this to the supposed “pressures of climate change” and alleged “urgency to find alternative energy sources,” saying people may thus be hesitant to discuss “possible negative impacts of renewable energy.”

Ms. Folk admits that sustainability requires proper e-waste management. Yet she laments, “Solar presents a particular problem. There is growing evidence that broken panels release toxic pollutants … [and] increasing concern regarding what happens with these materials when they are no longer viable, especially since they are difficult to recycle.”

    im starting to think Britain will be the first to collapse under all of this

    • Yes, and Australia isn’t much better. Why such hysteria, such blatantly excessive fear mongering? It’s starting to seem like governments there are itching to take on fascist powers. Add to that the glaringly obvious descent into lawlessness and chaos by Democratic Party officialdom in the US. It makes me wonder if the long Marxist march through the institutions in all 3 countries has succeeded beyond radicals’ wildest dreams.

  2. “Biden Says 200 Million People Will Die From COVID by the End of His Speech”

    Does this mean it takes only about 38 more speeches of Joe Biden to depopulate Earth? The mind boggles…

    “The two responsible for the heinous murder will have to pay for their actions, actions that have nothing to do with their nationality or their status as asylum seekers, but simply because alcohol can drive you crazy.”

    “….According to the Synergie-Officier Police Union, which communicated on Twitter, the two murderers of a young Lyonnais in the metro at Stade de Gerland station in Lyon this Sunday, September 20, 2020 after midnight, would be of Tunisian nationality and Libyan.”

  4. Well it’s looking more and more like the more islamised and equalised we force the less capable we are. Nature will have to take over and just slash burn and root and boot until a sense of sanity starts to make its way back to the centre again. “Nature” meaning….I guess we will have to wait and see.
