“Wake Up, Motherf***er, Wake Up!” — BLM-Antifa Rove Into Residential Neighborhood in North Portland, Shine Lights Into People’s Homes (Video)

A marching band of screaming BLM-Antifa terrorists roved into a residential neighborhood in north Portland late Friday night and shined lights into people’s homes.

“Wake up, motherf***er, wake up!” the Biden voters screamed as they terrorized residents trying to sleep.

Portland has been under siege by left-wing terrorists for several months but FBI Director Chris Wray says the biggest threat we face are from so-called white supremacists.

Biden Slams CBS Reporter for Asking About the Hunter Biden Scandal

For years, many of us have criticized President Donald Trump for his attacks on the media when they asked him about controversies involving him or his family. The media however has been largely silent as Democratic leaders have ratcheted up attacks on any journalists who question their positions or the party lines.

That was evident recently when Speaker Nancy Pelosi bizarrely attacked CNN anchor Wolf Blitzer as an apologist for the Trump Administration simply because he pressed her on blocking the stimulus package. Other liberals piled on Blitzer for daring to challenge the party line. Now Joe Biden has attacked the first reporter from one of the networks who simply asked for a response to the unfolding scandal involving his son Hunter Biden.

Free Speech Rally Marred by Violence as Counterprotesters Storm Event, Beat Pro-Trump Demonstrators

A rally called to promote free speech and denounce big tech censorship turned ugly Saturday in San Francisco, when hundreds of alleged Antifa counterprotesters showed up and berated and attacked demonstrators, leaving one missing a tooth.

The conservative group Team Save America organized the event to protest Twitter, which it argues censors free speech. They planned to rally at United Nations Plaza before moving the protest to Twitter’s headquarters a few blocks away. But the event quickly devolved into a shouting match and violence as hundreds of counterprotesters stormed the scene.

Meet the Pros at ‘Transforming’State Courts Into ‘Legislative Backstops’

If you’re wondering why Joe Biden still won’t say whether he supports packing the U.S. Supreme Court if he’s elected president, it’s because he doesn’t have to. His Democratic Party has been actively transforming state courts into legislative backstops for years — and will undoubtedly pressure Biden to do the same to our nation’s high court, if given the chance.

In states across the country, where Democrats have failed to achieve their increasingly radical agenda at the ballot box, leftist groups have spent millions of dollars installing on state supreme courts liberal, activist judges, who are all too willing to legislate from the bench. In 2020, that means helping to elect Biden president by ignoring critical election security laws designed to protect against voter fraud.

Look no further than in battleground Pennsylvania, where Democrats in 2015 seized on turmoil created by three resignations from the state’s highest court and spent millions of dollars to win those seats for liberal judges. The Democratic Party, state and national labor unions, and billboard trial lawyers all chipped in, knowing the stakes — and the opportunities — were high.

Michigan Court Restores Strict Deadline for Absentee Ballots

In a blow to local Democrats, judges in the swing state of Michigan ruled Friday that absentee ballots must reach county and local clerks offices by Nov. 3 in order to count in the general election.

The decision by a three-judge Court of Appealspanel means that ballots arriving later than 8 p.m. on election day won’t be counted, even if they were postmarked by Nov. 2.

The decision reverses a lower court ruling that would have allowed an extra two weeks, so long as the ballots were postmarked before election day.

Also reversed are provisions that would have let intermediaries deliver ballots to clerks’ offices.

The decision is the latest court action in a lawsuit brought by the Michigan Alliance for Retired Americans and other voting rights groups, seeking to overturn what they saw as a deadline that had become unconstitutionally restrictive, given the constraints of the pandemic.

The appellate judges — all three of whom were GOP appointees — found that sufficient steps had been taken by the state to accommodate voters, including the addition of satellite clerk’s offices and some 1,000 new ballot boxes.

Paul Craig Roberts: Life Within the Matrix is Our Future

Public health authorities know that the Covid death rate is greatly exaggerated. Hospitals are economically incentivized to report all deaths as Covid deaths. The CDC itself let the cat out of the bag when it reported that among the 200,000 US Covid deaths, only 9,000 were due to Covid alone. All others had in addition to Covid 2.6 fatal comorbidities. Deaths are concentrated in an elderly population with comorbidities, and those infected, if they were and it wasn’t a false positive, could as easily have died from seasonal flu.

Perhaps without meaning to, the World Health Organization (WHO) seems to have confirmed that Covid is no more dangerous than flu.

So, why do public health authorities withhold this information from political authorities and the public, and why do reporters not ferret it out? The information exists. It just isn’t reported.

Public heath authorities also know that the number of Covid cases is vastly overstated, because the PCR test produces more false positives than correct positives.

Why? Because they accuse him of being a Proud Boy because the Proud Boys don’t beat him up when he films their events.

Rep. Ilhan Omar Has Directed 70% of Her Campaign Expenditures to Her Husband’s Firm

Ilhan Omar is no stranger to scandal and alleged corruption.

During her short tenure as a legislator, she’s been connected to voter fraud allegations, investigated for alleged campaign finance violations and accused of having an affair with a married man (Tim Mynett, who is now her husband).

Speaking of campaign finance and Omar’s husband, the Democratic Minnesota representative’s campaign funneled roughly $1.1 million to E Street Group, a political consultant group co-founded by Mynett, between July 23 and Sept. 30.

That represents almost 70 percent — 69 percent to be exact — of the roughly $1.6 million disbursed by the campaign in that time period, the Washington Free Beacon reported Thursday, citing Federal Election Commission filings.

San Diego Unified School District Changes Grading System to ‘Combat Racism’

“This is part of our honest reckoning as a school district,” says SDUSD Vice President Richard Barrera. “If we’re actually going to be an anti-racist school district, we have to confront practices like this that have gone on for years and years.”

Wow — Outrageous! Chris Wray’s FBI is Investigating Whether Hunter Biden Emails Are “Russian Disinformation Operation”

It’s time to shut down the FBI and chain the doors.

The FBI is investigating the damning Hunter Biden emails — not for the myriad of crimes they expose but to see if they are a “Russian disinformation operation.”

  • The Hunter Biden emails expose a multi-million dollar pay-for-play scandal involving Joe and Hunter Biden.
  • The emails came from Hunter Biden’s computer.
  • Already, at least one person in the exposed email chains has corroborated the content of the emails.
  • FBI Director Chris Wray hid this information from Congress and the executive branch during the Trump impeachment hoax. The information would have absolved President Trump on day one!
  • The American patriot John Paul Mac Issac who was given the computers spoke with Larry Johnson for The Gateway Pundit on Friday.

And now the FBI is investigating the scandal for Russian fingerprints?

Several BC schools that run a Chinese government-affiliated program were asked to report to Chinese officials assessments on local politics and community leaders.

The Confucius Institute, which critics accuse of being an international front organization for the Chinese Communist Party, runs after-school and bilingual programs at Walton Elementary School, Scott Creek Middle School and five local high schools.

Numerous schools across Canada have cut ties or banned the group from operating entirely due to its suspected ties with Beijing.

Attacker Asked Kids to Point Out Teacher He Then Beheaded: French Cops

The 18-year-old who beheaded a history teacheroutside the school in France where he taught asked students in the street to point out his victim before the gruesome slaying, a French prosecutor said Saturday.

The Russian-born attacker also posted a photograph of the teacher’s body on Twitter, accompanied by a message saying he had carried out the killing, anti-terrorist prosecutor Jean-Francois Ricard said during a news conference, Reuters reported.

French police brought nine people in for questioning the suspected Islamist sympathizer killed the teacher, 47-year-old Samuel Paty, in broad daylight in a Paris suburb, in apparent retaliation for the use of a controversial image of the Prophet Mohammad in his classroom.

The Moscow-born Aboulakh A, who was of Chechen origin, according to The Sun, ran from the scene after killing Paty but was chased down and fatally shot when he confronted cops with a pellet gun.

Coronavirus Fraud Scandal — The Biggest Fight Has Just Begun

Story at a glance:

The German Corona Extra-Parliamentary Inquiry Committee (Außerparlamentarischer Corona Untersuchungsausschuss), launched July 10, 2020, was founded by four trial attorneys to investigate and prosecute those responsible for implementing the economically devastating lockdowns around the world, as well as using fraudulent testing to engineer the appearance of a dangerous pandemic.

The Corona Extra-Parliamentary Inquiry Committee will be working with an international network of lawyers to argue the most massive tort case ever — a case described as “probably the greatest crime against humanity ever committed”.

They argue that pandemic measures were intended to sow panic so that the pharmaceutical and tech industries can generate huge profits from the sale of PCR tests, antigen and antibody tests and vaccines, and the harvesting of our genetic fingerprints.

Lockdowns were unnecessary, and any claim to the contrary is wrong, the Inquiry Committee insists. The virus was already in retreat and infection rates were starting to decline when lockdowns were imposed; scientific evidence shows a majority of people already have built-in protection against the virus due to cross-reactive T cell immunity, and the PCR test cannot be used to identify an active infection with SARS-CoV-2 or any other virus.

While mortality statistics during the pandemic have been within the norms of any given year, meaning the pandemic has not resulted in an excess number of deaths or a death toll higher than normal, the collateral damage from pandemic response measures is nearly incalculable.

France: Macron Confirms Street Beheading an ‘Islamist Terrorist Attack’, Victim Targeted for Teaching ‘Freedom of Expression’

The unnamed victim, reported to be a teacher of history and geography, is said to have been targeted because he showed images of the Islamic prophet — Muslims were said to have been asked in advance to leave if they might be offended — during a “moral and civil education” class centred on freedom of speech and expression.

History Teacher Beheaded by Radical Islamist in France Leaves French Wondering if Terror Attacks Will Ever End

A French history teacher, 47-year-old Samuel Paty, was murdered and then beheaded in Paris, on Friday, Oct. 17. An 18-year-old suspect with a Chechen background was shot and killed by Parisian police soon after the incident. The Islamic radicalism inspired murder has allegedly been committed as vengeance for the high-school teacher’s lecture on the freedom of speech during which he showed a cartoon of the Prophet Mohammad.

After the murder, the killer made a post on Facebook in which he confessed to the murder and posted a picture of the head of his victim, while addressing President Macron directly.

Reportedly the teacher’s conduct has angered a number of Muslim students and their parents as the depiction of the founder of Islam is forbidden according to Islamic beliefs. His murder mirrors a number of previous terrorist attacks related to French citizens’ and media outlet’s attempts to exercise their freedom of speech, when images regarded as blasphemous by Muslims have been shown or published in order to challenge some archaic religious beliefs. The deadliest of such attacks has been the 2015 Charlie Hebdo incident, in which 12 people have been murdered and 11 injured.

Sex Banned Indoors for Some UK Couples Amid COVID-19 Restrictions

UK couples living in areas with ‘tier 2’ lockdowns are now prohibited from visiting romantic partners for the purposes of sex.

The major city centres of London and Essex are now included in the tier 2 lockdowns, after a 3-tier system was introduced to vary rules and regulations by area depending on the level of outbreak.

At a briefing, the Prime Minister’s official spokesman said, “The rules on household mixing in tier 2 set out that you should mix with your own household only unless you’ve formed a support bubble and that obviously does apply to some couples.”

A ‘support bubble’ refers to the creation of contact between two, single-family households. People in tier 2 areas are only allowed to socialise in close contact with one other household, with the government of the UK insisting that support bubbles not be changed at any time.

Slovenia: Activist and Radical Leftist Zlatan Cordic, Better Known as Rapper Zlatko, Attacked a Cameraman From the Conservative-Oriented Nova24tv and Stole His Camera!

“That’s the way it is with peaceful protesters?” commented Nova24TV editor Aleksander Rant

Zlatan Cordic, also known as rapper Zlatko, attacked the cameraman from Nova24TV and stole his camera, our journalists report from the protest of leftists against the government in Ljubljana.

They also report that police spoke to rapper Zlatko, a well-known provocateur and extreme left-wing activist, to return the camera.

Our journalists report that the cameraman is completely in shock because of the violent rapper. It is obvious that it was a deliberate act, as the mob, which considers itself as protesters, surrounded him, attacked him, and rapper Zlatko stole his camera.

“Well, that’s the way it is with peaceful protesters. Tonight, the protesters clearly and deliberately surrounded the cameraman Nova24TV, and Zlatko Cordic snatched the camera from his hands. They did this to a man who doesn’t create a program, who has nothing to do with programmatic orientation, and who just filmed protests. So much about Janša’s dictatorship and attacks on the media. The only media attacked, even physically, is @Nova24TV, by people whose violence and intolerance are the only threat to democracy in Slovenia!” commented Nova24TV editor Aleksander Rant.

“After the verbal attacks of the leftists on Demokracija and Nova24TV and their incitement, the violence with the physical attack on the cameraman has now obviously materialized. It is no surprise that he was attacked by Zlatan Cordic, who is a kind of rapper and considers himself an artist. When a man looks at him and listens to what he is saying, he easily recognizes in him a street bully who can hardly wait to cause an incident or attack someone. This time it ended with a stolen camera. I am worried that Zlatko and similar left-wing fanatics will draw their knives next time,” the editor of Demokracija Jože Bišcak commented the attack on the Nova24TV cameraman…

Victoria Woman Arrested Over Anti-Lockdown Facebook Post is Still Banned From Social Media

It’s one thing to play apparently endless cat-and-mouse with coronavirus by curbing its spread through draconian restrictive lockdowns (only to see it flare up again) but it’s quite another to burst into people’s homes and arrest them in front of the their children merely for expressing doubt that this may be the right way to go about fixing this global catastrophe.

And yet that’s exactly what happened to an Australian woman, who was in September arrested for allegedly organizing an anti-lockdown protest in Ballarat, Victoria. 28-year-old Zoe Buehler, who has young children and is currently pregnant, was detained by the police and taken away from her own living room over a Facebook post that was seen as incitement to what you might call “coronavirus sedition.”

Austria: Court Sentences East African Serial Rapist to Just 13 Years

A court in Austria has sentenced a 30-year-old migrant from the small East African island of Comoros to a mere thirteen years in prison after he confessed to raping ten women outside a Klagenfurt techno club between 2015 and 2019.

On Thursday, the Klagenfurt Regional Court heard how the man from Comoros sexually assaulted a total of ten victims — all in the area of the Disco Bollwerk on Klagenfurt Südring, Austria’s largest newspaper Kronen Zeitung reports.

Authorities were finally able to identify the serial rapist in early October after a trace of his DNA was found on one of the victims. Shortly after, police were able to track down and arrest the East African migrant. It wasn’t until Thursday’s court hearing, however, that the man finally confessed to the crimes in front of presiding Judge Gernot Kugi.

Is the New EU Migration Pact a Backdoor for Settling Migrants in Countries Like Czechia, Hungary and Poland?

Amid the pandemic, European Union states are about to start negotiations about asylum policy reform in Europe, but concerns remain that the EU’s proposed “New Pact for Migration and Asylum” will serve as a backdoor to migrant relocations.

The European Commission is launching a PR blitz in countries where resistance to the pact remains strong, such as the Czech Republic and Poland, with Vice-President of the European Commission Margaritis Schinas conducting a joint interview for Czech and Polish Radio on Thursday.

“The dispute over refugee quotas divided Europe four years ago. We want to try to unite it again,” said Schinas.

What’s Behind the Success of Belgium’s Anti-Immigration Vlaams Belang Party?

Poll after poll shows the conservative Vlaams Belang party holding strong to its first place position in the Flanders region of Belgium. Meanwhile, the party’s following on social media has exploded higher.

How can the success of Tom Van Grieken’s party be explained?

In the last elections in May 2019, the party received more than 18 percent in Flanders, which was behind the Nieuw-Vlaamse Alliantie (N-VA) party, the second-best result among the Flemish parties, the RTBF news outlet reported. Since then, all polls show Vlaams Belang would win in Flanders, the mostly Dutch-speaking northern half of the country.

Lies, Fake News and Politicians

We all relied on news reporters to give us accurate news. They were in the know, we thought. But today? NO. We are given false, and slanted news to persuade readers to come to their way of thinking and yes, they are pledged to change the way that we think. So instead of being classified as reporters, they should be classified as simply persuaders. As an example, take a look at the political news.

The news today is like the cotton candy at the carnival. It has a lot of fluff, but no substance. Notice how they refer to a man and his wife as a man and his partner. Well, “partner” instead of spouse, husband, wife, fiance, is LGBT language, meaning a same-sex ‘couple.’ Indeed every couple today are “partners” and we the public are using their language to indicate to them that we support their homosexuality, which is the point.

This is what the democrats want to enforce. They intrude into our minds by correcting the way we talk and think. A couple is a man and a woman…period. It is a man and his wife, or fiance, or even girlfriend. Not today. News currently is used to manipulate people into accepting their views (the liberal reporters) and immoral life styles by changing our language which will be forced upon us so that we comply.

  1. Re: UK: Sex banned indoors for some UK couples…

    Well, at our age (70+), and with winter coming on, I guess we’ll have to risk it…

  2. Question one: Are you now it have you ever been a Muslim or a supporter of the Muslim Brotherhood – etcetera etcetera etcetera.

  3. Thank goodness for the upstanding moderate. 🙁

    Such a wonder, in following the “perfect man”. 🙁

    Sweden is held up to be such a great example to follow, and believes in practicing the “kindness” of ‘super diversity’. 🙁

    By the way, my short excerpts are making ready for the future, of “hate speech” laws, and so practicing self censoring. 🙂
    There is a coming of more laws in my country, that such can not be disseminated to any others.
    Whoops forgot to change the link, as that is a give away.
    Oh well, next time.

  4. The German concentration camps were super diverse. Today’s society is becoming a concentration of super diversity with lock ups and lockdown jail time for the uncooperative. Is there a limit? Of course there is. Lazy cowardly uncooperative Muslims and unimaginative females bring it on.

    • Forcing a polygon into a round. Forcing pre-historic head shapes. Forcing minorities over majority. Forcing once recognisable UK and Ireland into silent retreat. All to people please shallow thinking imported chaps.
