Gates of Vienna News Feed 9/21/2020

Rachel Johnson, the sister of UK Prime Minister Boris Johnson, suggested that alcohol should be banned until a vaccine for COVID-19 is found. Meanwhile, a borough council in West London banned its employees who work from home from smoking on the job, even at home.

In other news, a 102-year-old woman in New Hampshire has survived both the Spanish Flu and the Wuhan Coronavirus. She contracted the Spanish flu in 1918, when she was an infant, and COVID-19 earlier this year. She recovered from both, and is now feeling fine.

45 Shot, 10 Fatally, Across Chicago This Weekend

Ten people were killed and 35 others, including a 16-year-old boy, were injured by gunfire this weekend across Chicago.

The weekend, which lasted from 5 p.m. Friday to 5 a.m. Monday, was less deadly than the previous weekend, which saw 12 killed and 42 wounded during the same timeframe.

But, overall, shootings and murders are up 50% compared to last year, according to Chicago Police Department statistics. Through Sept. 13, police have recorded 544 murders in 2020 compared to 364 murders during the same time in 2019.

A Telling Sign? Vaccine Top Executives Dump Their Stock

After cashing in stock options and raking in tens of millions of dollars in personal profit, top executives at Moderna have now dumped all or nearly all of their stock holdings. What do these executives know that we don’t as their COVID-19 vaccine enters Phase 3 trials?…

Early warning signs that something might be amiss have already started emerging. As detailed in “Gates Tries to Justify Side Effects of Fast-Tracked Vaccine,” results7 from Moderna’s Phase 1 human trial revealed 100% of volunteers in the high-dose group suffered systemic side effects. Side effects included fatigue, chills, headache and myalgia (muscle pain); 21% suffered “one or more severe events.”

According to Bill Gates, those side effects are largely due to the high dosages Moderna had to use in order to achieve desired antibody levels. But, if high dosages are required to create a robust-enough immune response, and higher dosages also cause systemic side effects in nearly all people, just how safe will this vaccination campaign be?

In the 20 years that vaccine makers have tried to develop a coronavirus vaccine, efforts have failed due to dangerous, many times lethal, side effects.

Dialogues With the Devil

I’m going to mention the death of Ruth Bader Ginsburg as it’s germane to this column. Her death has thrown the Democrat/Communist Party USA into indescribable shock, although it shouldn’t. Ginsburg spent the last several years battling cancer and other serious health issues not to mention sleeping on the bench. Their panic is reverberating across this country like a massive tsunami.

Her death isn’t just a shock because she died but rather because of when she went.

Our voting system, because of the usual electronic and human vote fraud is now even worse with the massive mail-in voting and ballot harvesting. Both parties know it and both parties are preparing their legal teams for a show down with the expectation it likely will end up in the U.S. Supreme Court. Unless, it’s such a landslide for Trump the Democrats have no choice but to accept defeat. Which they won’t, of course, just as when Hildebeast was declared the loser.

DOJ Designates New York City as an ‘Anarchist Jurisdiction’

New York City is one of three places that “have permitted violence and destruction of property to persist and have refused to undertake reasonable measures to counteract criminal activities,” leading to its designation as an “anarchist jurisdiction,” the Justice Department said Monday.

Rather than idle words, the designation has potential financial consequences. President Trump issued a memo earlier this month directing the DOJ to identify jurisdictions that, in its view, were not enforcing the law appropriately. Designated cities could lose their federal funding.

MIAMI — Jonathan Guerra thought that he was communicating with a romantic interest who he could involve in his efforts to promote multilingual ISIS propaganda, but the person in Miami who he was really sending information to was a covert FBI employee, according to the FBI.

Guerra, who was born in Cuba and is a U.S. naturalized citizen, is also known as Abu Zahra Al-Andalusi, federal prosecutors said. While he enjoyed the safety of a home in Lee County’s Lehigh Acres community and vacationed with his family in Cancun, Mexico, Guerra was promoting suicide bombing, prosecutors said.

What’s the Worst That Could Happen?

“James Kirkpatrick presents several possibilities in the September 15, 2020 V-Dare article, “Dems Planning To Enslave White America If Trump Loses,” said Elbel. “I hadn’t expected to see a heading like that for another 20 years when White Americans become a minority in the country that their ancestors founded. But with the escalation of racial conflict and divisive identity politics, things have changed over the course of months.”

Here are possibilities as listed in the article:

Eliminate the Electoral College [It’s time to abolish the Electoral College, by Darrell West, Brookings Institute, October 15, 2019] (Which means California and New York would control who becomes president.) Make Puerto Rico and Washington D.C. states[that will give them four Democrat senators in perpetuity.] — plus possibly the Virgin Islands — thus allowing coastal elites to rule Middle America like a conquered territory [Journalist: Dems should push for Puerto Rico, DC statehood after 2020, The Hill, July 30, 2018] Auto-registering Americans to vote, making Election Day a holiday and thus making it easier for uninformed people to vote Eliminate the Senate filibuster [The Senate Filibuster Is Another Monument to White Supremacy| Tear it down,by David Litt, Atlantic, June 27, 2020] Packthe Supreme Court [Democrats’’hunger to break the old political system grows ahead of 2020 election, by Sahil Kapur, NBC News, August 16, 2020] Increase legal immigration (Dems doubled it to 2,000,000 (million) annually in the 2013 Senate Bill 744 that passed the senate, but failed in the house.) Drastically increase the refugee inflow now virtually cut off under Trump Enact Amnesty, providing the Democrats with tens of millions of new voters, especially as amnestied illegals begin sponsoring their relatives under our absurd (and unreformed by Trump) “family reunification” laws Another proposal: an “anti-racist amendment” to the Constitution that would allow the government to punish any racial inequality, which would automatically be evidence of “racist policy.” Given that we never have equal outcomes in multiracial societies, this would mean virtually every social interaction would become a potential federal case.

Elbel continued, “I would add the virtual abolishment of the Second Amendment. The fact that millions of Americans own firearms will not matter.”

Hungarian Prime Minister Viktor Orban publicly endorsed Donald Trump Monday, underscoring the need for right-thinking politicians and academics to reject cancel culture and groupthink.

Hungary is “very familiar” with the foreign policy of U.S. administrations under the Democrats, “built as it is on moral imperialism,” Mr. Orban said in a bracing essay in the Hungarian daily Magyar Nemzet. “We have tasted it — albeit under duress. We didn’t like it, and we don’t want a second helping.”

Polish President Duda: The Livelihoods of Farmers and Their Families Should Come Before That of Animals

During the harvest festival in Warsaw, in a speech delivered by Polish President Andrezj Duda, he emphasized that while it is important to treat animals in a humanitarian way, the well-being of Polish farmers must come first.

The president was referring to a new bill concerning animal rights passed on Friday in the Polish Parliament. The new bill foresees a ban on breeding animals for fur and restricts ritual killings of animals.

The amendment is now being debated over by the upper chamber of the Polish parliament, but the issue has triggered a political crisis that is a threat to the stability of ruling coalition of Law and Justice (PiS), United Poland and Agreement.

Reducing Emissions by 55% is Unrealistic for Czechia, Says Minister Havlicek in Response to EU Proposal

Reducing greenhouse gas emissions by 55 percent by 2030, as requested by the European Commission, is unrealistic for Czechia, said Minister of Industry and Trade Karel Havlicek, who further pointed out that the Commission should first discuss its objectives with the member states and only then draw conclusions.

According to Minister Havlicek, achieving this goal this will be only possible later if the country is to maintain energy self-sufficiency, not destroy industry in the coming years and work with real numbers in pure mobility.

The EU Wants to Give Itself Greater Powers to Punish Tech Companies That Don’t Censor Enough

The European Union (EU) wants more powers to apply stricter policies on US Big Tech companies if they don’t do enough to censor what the EU decides is “misinformation.” These companies could soon be forced to sell or break up operations in Europe if they don’t police content effectively.

Speaking to the Financial Times, EU commissioner Thierry Breton said the new powers the union is fighting for are in the interest of reducing the market dominance of these Big Tech companies.

The Prelude to World War II: The Spanish Civil War and Today’s America

America is definitely not Europe, but we can find a number of parallels between European history and contemporary America. For example, we’ve previously written about the Italian Years of Lead as a possible template for urban unrest and low-level inter-tribal warfare in the United States. Another example of how things might play out in the United States is the Spanish Civil War. The Spanish Civil War is known to historians, amateur and professional alike, as the “dress rehearsal for the Second World War.” It is so termed because it pitted one side — which was equipped, armed and funded by Europe’s fascist regimes (Germany and Italy) — against a government largely funded and propped up by the Soviet Union. However, it is worth noting that General Francisco Franco’s nationalist forces were not themselves fascist (though there were fascists within their ranks) and that Spain remained neutral during the Second World War, later becoming a close ally of the United States in the fight against Communism internationally. While there are few perfect analogs to be found anywhere in world history, there are parallels between the contemporary domestic political situation in the United States and the period immediately before and during the Spanish Civil War. And while the situation in the United States might play out in a much similar way to the Spanish Civil War, it is worth noting that our previous Civil War was the bloodiest in human history. There is little doubt that a Second American Civil War would not be significantly more destructive.

UK: Oxford Researchers Call for Facebook to Fact-Check Even More “Coronavirus Misinformation”

A new study from The Oxford Internet Institute and Reuters Institute for the Study of Journalism at the University of Oxford has blamed a “failure of fact-checking” on Facebook for amplifying what they deem to be “coronavirus misinformation” videos on YouTube and is calling for more aggressive fact-checking to ensure that users receive “accurate and trustworthy” information.

The study looked at over one million coronavirus YouTube videos that had been shared on Facebook, Reddit, and Twitter between October 2019 and June 2020 and found that 8,105 of those videos had been removed for violating YouTube’s community guidelines. It then found that Facebook placed warning labels on 55 of these videos (0.7%) before they were removed by YouTube.

Hungary’s PM Orban: George Soros Wants to Create Mixed Ethnic Societies, Dismantle Nationalism, And Hand Power to the Global Elite

“The greatest threat to national self-determination today is the global network of open society advocates which seek to abolish national governance. The goals of George Soros’s network with unlimited financial and human resources are clear. By accelerating migration, they will create mixed-ethnicity, open societies in order to dismantle national decision-making and put it in the hands of the global elite,” writes Orban.

PM Orban: 20% of Europe’s Population Will be Muslim by 2050 But Central Europe is Choosing a Different Path on Migration

In a long-form article for Magyar Nemzet, Hungarian Prime Minister Viktor Orban warns that by 2050, Europe will have a huge Muslim population as a result of Western Europe’s pursuit of multiculturalism and mass migration — a stance that Hungary and Central Europe continue to reject.

“Another estimate was that by 2050, 20 per cent of the population of Europe — excluding Russia — would be Muslim. Today it seems likely that by 2050 we can expect majority Muslim populations in major Western cities,” Orban wrote “It is not surprising that Central European countries have chosen a different future, free of immigration and migration. Nor is it surprising that the focus of V4 policy is on improving competitiveness, even if Brussels wants to move in precisely the opposite direction: climate goals pursued to the point of absurdity, a social Europe, a common tax system, a multicultural society.”

  1. “The president was referring to a new bill concerning animal rights passed on Friday in the Polish Parliament. The new bill foresees a ban on breeding animals for fur and restricts ritual killings of animals.”
    Furtrade and Jewish/muslim slaughter has hardly anything to do with the wellbeing of farmers…

  2. “The Hammersmith and Fulham Council in West London has banned employees from smoking at working desks even when working online from home. Campaigners call the move a “moral crusade” and accused the council of “waging a war on choice.”

    This comes as no surprise to me. Of all the Local Authorities I ever worked for. LBHF was by far the worst, the very, very worst. Who was the best ? you might ask, CAMDEN.

    • Hi Peter, hope you’re well.

      Were you at Camden when Roy Shaw was running the Council? I knew him as a fellow-record collector, and liked him a lot; sadly he’s no longer with us.

      • Hi Mark, I’m fine. Hope you are too.

        Sadly, Roy Shaw had passed away a few years before I got to Camden but, during the ten or so years that I worked there, his name came up quite frequently. There is even a Roy Shaw Centre in the borough. He is very highly spoken of and is well-remembered by those who knew him.

  3. The 102 year old lady who has survived both the Spanish flu and Covid-19 is a shining testimony to lifelong immunity of a person who must live a very healthy lifestyle. So it’s all about personal health choices nd NOT government-imposed circumstances.
