Police said that looters had turned the shopping area in the Port Richmond neighborhood into a “total loss”. Meanwhile, hundreds of rioters took to the streets in Brooklyn, vandalizing police vehicles and businesses and doing battle with police.

Greg Mannarino: “They Want People Desperate. People Aren’t Desperate Enough”

Greg Mannarino says the stock market will continue to rise for now and expect more debt after the election to spur inflation. The big goal now is to destroy the middle class and make people desperate. And they aren’t yet desperate enough.

Another lockdown that impoverishes more and takes the livelihoods of hundreds of thousands more people could very well be coming down the pike. Already, “more Americans are going hungry today than we have seen in the last 75 years. That’s pretty profound,” says Mannarino.

That says a lot about the current financial state of affairs in this country right now. But unless people get more desperate, they won’t be taking the central bank’s new digital dollar, which will be tracked, traced, taxed, and tied to a social credit score. You can be eliminated at will and prevented from spending money if the powers-that-shouldn’t-be decide it.

This should honestly horrify everyone. Our permanent enslavement is around the corner if we don’t wake up and stop letting political psychopaths and central banks dictate our lives. If you want a clear picture of what the establishment ruling class wants, it’s the New World Order and can be summed up by reading this article:

If America had any sense, we would be locking down again now

Poverty must occur to create dependence on the system in order for this to work in the elitists’ factor. Once you understand the end game, you should know their next moves, at least to some extent.

Hungary: Finance Minister: GDP Could be Down by 6.4% in 2020

The GDP of Hungary could fall by 6.4 percent this year and economic trends could start to change from the second quarter of 2021 with a vaccine against the coronavirus possibly available by that time, Finance Minister Mihaly Varga said at an annual hearing before a parliamentary committee on Tuesday.

The finance ministry is working to restore the country’s growth momentum and a proposal covering the years 2020 to 2023 is being drawn up for financial restructuring, the minister said, adding that it is clear the economy will only recover at a slow pace from the coronavirus pandemic.

“Antifa” Sympathizer Linked to Dayton Shooter Gets Job at NATO

A far left activist who came to be known for his work at Right Wing Watch is now a researcher at the Atlantic Council, a prominent NATO think-tank.

Jared Holt, who extremism researchers such as Dr Eoin Lenihan have previously linked to the “antifa” movement — a group of loosely organized anarchists and communists who believe in the use of violence and institutional censorship to silence opposing political views — is featured as a fellow at the Atlantic Council’s Digital Forensic Research Lab.

While Holt has never publicly confirmed or denied his links to the anarchist movement, he found himself immersed in controversy last year when it emerged that self-described “antifa” activist Connor Betts, who killed 10 people in a shooting spree at a Dayton, Ohio bar, repeatedly interacted with him on social media.

“Who is Miles Taylor?” — Trump Assails White House Mole: “They Should Fire, Shame & Punish Everybody Associated With This Fraud”

Update (1850ET): More criticism of the NYT’s characterization of Taylor’s status as a “senior” administration official is rolling in.

Digging back through Internet history, several twitter users pointed out that Taylor’s name wasn’t listed on the DHS’s “leadership” page — which included dozens of names — on the day the NYT report was published. At the time, he hadn’t yet achieved his most-senior rank as chief of staff.

And just like that — all the NYT’s reporting sourcing “senior” administration officials has been possibly called into question.

Another point: If Taylor was so ‘senior’ how come nobody knows who he is?

Update (1745ET): President Trump just took a minute away from the campaign trail to weigh in on the ‘coming out’ of Miles Taylor, the formerly “anonymous” op-ed writer and self-proclaimed leader of the internal White House #resistance.

[Comment: Seen on Twitter: Nobody had any clue who that lowel-level idiot is or was, which is why “Who is Miles Taylor” is one of the top searches on Google right now.]

1,000 Looters Turn Philly Retail Zone Into “Total Loss”

In the second night of unrest in Philadelphia after the Monday shooting of Walter Wallace Jr. by police, police say 1,000 looters descended on retail stores in the Port Richmond neighborhood.

Police told CBS Philly that the area was “a total loss.”

Looters also hit stores in other parts of the city.

Philadelphia County’s District Attorney Larry Krasner has reportedly charged dozens of suspect with felony burglary related to Monday’s looting.

Despite the prosecutions a Fox29 reporter tweeted that police were ordered not to arrest looters Tuesday night.

32 Arrested as NYC Protests Erupt Over Police Killing of Black Man in Philadelphia

Hundreds of protesters took to the streets in Brooklyn Tuesday night, marching in response to a police shooting in Philadelphia that left a Black man dead following a domestic dispute call earlier this week.

Nearly 40 commercial properties and nine NYPD vehicles damaged by vandals over the course of the night, NYPD officials said, with the damage including broken store windows and small fires set. Five department members suffered minor injuries, mostly while effecting arrests during the protests. Police said that 32 people were arrested and five sumonses were issued throughout the evening. The most serious charges included assaulting a police officer, obstructing governmental administration, disorderly conduct and graffiti-related activities.

One NYPD spokesperson said a car attempted to drive through a group of cops at one point, causing some minor injuries.

BLM supporters and other criminal opportunists reacted to the police shooting of Walter Wallace Jr., who was killed after advancing towards officers with a knife, by staging violent unrest, attacking police and looting stores.

After targeting a local Walmart and Footlocker, looters turned their attention to Chick-fil-A, smashing into and damaging a branch of the food chain.

Tacking her own self-interests on to a bill originally intended to expunge the records of those convicted of marijuana possession before the state moved to decriminalize the drug, Lucas hopes to extend the bill’s benefits to those tried and convicted in monument attacks, expunging the convictions from their records after a period of 8 years.

Heads Up, Liberal Jews — Don’t be Jews With Trembling Knees

“Don’t threaten us with cutting off your aid. It will not work. I am not a Jew with trembling knees. I am a proud Jew with 3,700 years of civilized history. Nobody came to our aid when we were dying in the gas chambers and ovens. Nobody came to our aid when we were striving to create our country. We paid for it. We fought for it. We died for it. We will stand by our principles. We will defend them. And, when necessary, we will die for them again, with or without your aid.”

Those words were spoken by Menachem Begin in June of 1982, directly to the Democrat senator from Delaware, Joe Biden, who had confronted the Israeli Prime Minister during his Senate Foreign Relations Committee testimony by threatening to cut off aid to Israel.

That’s right, only 32 years after the establishment of the tiny Jewish state, which was surrounded by 22 war-mongering, Israel-loathing Arab states, and only 35 years after the Holocaust savagely murdered — tortured and gassed-to-death — six-million Jewish men, women, children and infants, Senator Biden was once again terrorizing the Jews of the world with his menacing ultimatum.

Not a fluke, not a misstatement, not an error in judgement, but vintage Joe Biden, whose longtime antagonism and belligerence toward Israel has been exhaustively documented, most recently by Shmuel Klatzkin (Biden’s Hostility to Israel — read the whole article) and Janet Levy in AmericanThinker.com (Is a Vote for Joe Biden in the Interest of American Jews?).

Idaho Leftists Shutter BSU Campus Coffeeshop Owned by Fiancé of Paralyzed Cop, Cite Anti-Cop Sentiment

The Marxist-based cancel culture was on the move again, this time blindly causing the closure of a popular campus coffee shop that provided 20 students with employment simply because the shop’s owner openly supported law enforcement.

The Big City Coffee recently opened a second location in Boise, Idaho, located in Albertsons Library on the campus of Boise State University. But last Thursday, woke student government activists bullied the small business into shutting its doors because they didn’t execute due diligence to fully understand the owners’ support for law enforcement. As a result, more than 20 female students who were employed by Big City Coffee found themselves without jobs.

Joe Biden: Through the Eyes of World Leaders

Elected Democrats as well as their media are trying to convince voters they should vote for Biden over Trump because of Trump’s personality, his tweets, he’s the orange man.

But what about world leaders? You know, the ones the next president will have to deal with at summits and other events where world leaders gather?

What do they see watching Joe Biden?

Some might call Biden’s gaffes funny. They are not funny when considering electing the next leader of the free world. What’s also NOT funny is watching an old man with advanced dementia struggle to try and sound coherent when he’s not. When Biden can’t unscramble his thoughts, desperately searching to speak without breaking down.

A frail old man with the power to order a nuclear attack on a foreign country. To send our men and women into war which we all hope will not happen any time soon. An individual who should be in a nursing home, not being dragged out of his basement by his wife and handlers to make a fool of himself to the world.

Imagine Putin, Macron, Merkel, Xi Jinping, Trudeau and other world leaders watching the two videos below. What are they to think? That the American people would be so stupid as to elect someone staring at potential criminal charges (son’s computer and influence peddling, perhaps trouble with the IRS and more) who is unable to concentrate or sound coherent enough to cite even half the alphabet.

NBA Braces for Record 40% Drop in Revenue in 2020-2021 Season

Amid crashing NBA viewership now that basketball has become a venue for “in your face” (whether you asked for it or not) political activism, it will not come as a surprise that NBA revenues are also slumping and according to financial numbers shared with teams and obtained by ESPN, NBA’s revenues dropped 10% to $8.3 billion for the 2019-20 season.

Among the biggest reasons for the revenue loss were an $800 million loss in gate receipts and a $400 million loss in sponsorships and merchandise, and in a “surprise” twist, the NBA’s losses also included $200 million “net negative impact” from the loss of a partnership with China following Daryl Morey tweet promoting Hong Kong freedom a year ago.

This explains why some of the NBA’s most vocal domestic social justice warriors are also so bizarrely mute when it comes to China’s trampling of basic human rights: all players have a vested financial interest and incentive to keep their mouths shut when it comes to any China criticism. Which may also explain why said SJWs are so much more vocal when it comes to bashing injustices in their own country as a diversion for their hypocrisy.

But if the 2019-2020 disaster was bad, 2020-2021 is shaping up to be nothing short of horrific: as the NBA and National Basketball Players Association discuss start dates and financial amendments to the collective bargaining agreement, ESPN writes that “the potential for a grim financial landscape without fans in the 2020-21 season looms over the league.”

The Mobilization of the Mob — Including ‘Deep-Staters’

Ready or not, here they come. The ground troops of the anti-Donald Trump resistance aren’t just biding their time until Election Day for Hidin’ Joe Biden. Hell no. They’re making their direct action checklists and checking them twice. They’re training for instigating.

No matter the outcome at the ballot box, the left-wing mob is prepared to disrupt and destroy nationwide in the name of preserving “democracy.”

Four weeks ago, I exposed the pot-bangers and lawn-crashers of the Sunrise Movement. That’s the constantly morphing, full-time front group for the Sierra Club that nurtures rent-a-rioters to agitate for everything from the “Green New Deal,” to Black Lives Matter and the “defund the police” movement, to the attacks at private homes of Senate Republicans — who just delivered the confirmation of Supreme Court Justice Amy Coney Barrett. Another key social justice player, ShutDown D.C., is teaming with Sunrise Movement guerrilla warriors to mobilize students, community organizers and even federal employees to take to the streets on Nov. 3.

Twitter “mistakenly” flagged a tweet about voting by former Attorney General Eric Holder. It seems even Democrats are on now the wrong side of Twitter’s censorship system on the subject of voting.

“It’s too late to use the mails. Given Supreme Court rulings, I urge everyone to now vote in person; early vote, or use drop boxes. Protect your health, but don’t let the Court and the deliberately crippled Postal Service deprive you of your most precious civil right. Plan your vote,” Holder wrote on Twitter yesterday.

When the Media Lies, The Constitution Dies!

The press in all forms (and social media) didn’t become socialist Democrat propagandists by accident. It has been a centuries-long effort, dating back to the early 1900’s, to brainwash an entire culture in the flawed, anti-American ideology of Progressivism. All that was necessary to complete the transformation was to infiltrate socialist policies (and later added, environmental, one-world policies) into the public school system and then into academia. Generation after generation of America’s school children have been immersed in socialist swill until the body politic has become socialists in their thinking, socialists in their actions and socialists in their politics.

The products of this purposeful indoctrination became journalists, educators, teachers, professors, union workers, politicians, bureaucrats, lawyers, psychologists, psychiatrists, engineers, code writers, technicians and even housewives, until one day, there was ONLY ONE frame of thought …. Progressivism. Those graduates of the public schools and colleges eventually occupied the halls of the now all-powerful Social Media. All other thoughts, ideas and policies that did not agree with the ONE frame of thought, were demeaned, maligned, squelched and rendered irrelevant, or silenced by censorship, or sometimes threatened by violence, or violence itself…

Besides the financial interests of the billionaires that own the news outlets, a fatal disease has infected journalism throughout the entire industry. Journalists now want to change the world with their power, in other words “make” the news, instead of reporting the news accurately.

Besides the inherent bias, now predominantly liberal, the success or failure of the news media is driven by five factors: advertising revenues, paid subscriptions, ratings, the 24-hour news cycle and the impact of the internet and social media. No business model allows success without sufficient revenues to support all of the activities of the news outlet. Print media is suffering from lower advertising and subscription revenues and many have folded, or are on the brink of bankruptcy because of TV, the Internet and social media. Radio, which offers a combination of music and talk, appears to be healthy but only from a local perspective. National talk radio is not doing all that well, unless merged with TV, Rush Limbaugh being the exception. The TV media requires a little more detail.

National television has become talk radio, only in video form, with endless debate and analysis, camouflaged as news. No TV platform is immune from this malady. Turn on any TV news program and instead of the all-around broad news we were expecting, we get endless opinions and analysis by so-called experts, reporters and correspondents, better suited for the newspaper opinion page. If you are looking for national and international news reported accurately, you will be hard pressed to find it. And the analysis and opinions are heavily slanted towards the left side of the political aisle with just a pointless token segment from the other side.

Belgium: Police Take Down Muhammad Cartoon Posters, Check CCTV Cameras to Find Those Responsible

“The police denied they were infringing the right to freedom of expression….’The caricatures themselves are absolutely not punishable, but the infringement here is illegal posting,’ the police spokesperson said.”

Yeah, sure, that’s it. Meanwhile, it would be interesting to see how Brussels police would react if posters attacking Trump (who is widely hated all over Western Europe) went up in the same places. Maybe the cops really aren’t infringing upon the freedom of expression, and it’s just a coincidence that all over Europe and North America, more and more people are counseling submission and surrender in the face of threats of violence from some Muslims over the Muhammad cartoons. Maybe.

Conservatives Must Defend Poland’s Churches From Violent Protestors, Says PiS Leader Jaroslaw Kaczynski

The leader of Law and Justice (PiS) and current Deputy Prime Minister Jaroslaw Kaczynski is calling on conservatives to defend the Church against radical left-wing and pro-abortion protesters who have rioted over the Polish Constitutional Court’s verdict outlawing eugenic abortion.

The recent verdict, which has sparked violent protests from left-wing and pro-abortion groups, has now made it illegal to abort babies who may be born with disabilities such as Down’s syndrome.

“These events also have a different aspect. Attacks on churches are being carried out. This is a terrible and new event on this scale in Polish history,” Kaczynski said about the protests.

France: Finance Minister Accuses Mayors of Giving in to ‘Political Islam’ With Women-Only Hours at Pools

Bruno Le Maire stated:

“There is terrorism, yes — the crime that must be judged and condemned….And there is the ideology that is at the root of terrorism and which is more insidious — political Islam, which has had its accomplices for years in France.’“

And that is precisely the same ideology that declares women to be inferior; yet those who seek to advance the Sharia present female coverings or segregation in the West as merely a matter of modesty.

In Islam, women are commanded to be fully covered….

(Quran 24:31) And tell the believing women to reduce of their vision and guard their private parts and not expose their adornment except that which appears thereof and to wrap [a portion of] their headcovers over their chests and not expose their adornment except to their husbands, their fathers, their husbands’ fathers, their sons, their husbands’ sons, their brothers, their brothers’ sons, their sisters’ sons, their women, that which their right hands possess, or those male attendants having no physical desire, or children who are not yet aware of the private aspects of women. And let them not stamp their feet to make known what they conceal of their adornment. And turn to Allah in repentance, all of you, O believers, that you might succeed.

Italy: Use of Psychotropic Drugs Rises in Post-Lockdown

Triple compared to last year says ISS?s SNAP alert system

(ANSA) — ROME, OCT 22 — The recreational use of psychotropic drugs has risen in Italy in the post-lockdown period, the Higher Health Institute’s SNAP early alert system said Thursday.

SNAP detected 33 new substances being used in the five months from May to October.

This was triple the data from the same period last year.

There were no reports during lockdown.

Among the new drugs are two new synthetic cannabinoids, Mdmb-4en-Pinaca and 4F-Mdmb-Pinaca, which have been subjected to intense monitoring in Europe because of their elevated public health risks.

They are currently being evaluated by the Expert Commitee on Drug Dependence in view of possible international controls.

The anti-poisons centre of the Fondazione Salvatore Maugeri in Pavia has also reported a growing number of drug intoxications, linked to the circulation of the new substances in Italy.

From March to today there have been 16 cases of intoxication, compared to four in the same period last year.

SNAP has found 16 cases of acute intoxication or death since 2016.

Muslim World Condemns Macron Over Cartoons, Iran’s Zarif Says ‘Muslims Are Primary Victims of Cult of Hatred’

France is experiencing backlash from across the Muslim world, including Pakistan, Libya, Gaza, Lebanon, Morocco, Jordan, Turkey and Iran, for standing up for the freedom of speech. And once again, Pakistani Prime Minister Imran Khan is discussing the pain Muslims feel when Muhammad is insulted, just as he did when he was first elected in August 2018. This time, Imran Khan absurdly compared the pain Muslims feel over insults to Muhammad to the pain suffered by Jews during the Holocaust.

Complaints were also heard from Muslims in the U.S. Hamas-linked CAIR demanded that France be investigated for “collective punishment” of Muslims for the measures it has taken after the jihad beheading of Samuel Paty.

Amid all this, note that there have been no significant protests against the actual abuse of Uighur Muslims by China. It is also stunning that Muslim victimology continues and even intensifies in the wake of the beheading of a man for offending Islam. The ruthless attack against France that is proceeding now is what any country can expect if it stands up against Islamic supremacism.

Scotland’s new odious hate crime bill would go so far as to criminalize dinner table conversations if their ‘offensive’ content is reported to police.

“Conversations over the dinner table that incite hatred must be prosecuted under Scotland’s hate crime law,” reports the Times.

Such conversations were previously protected under the Public Order Act 1986, which includes a “dwelling defense” that shields conversations that take place in private homes from being prosecuted, however that would be removed under the new law.

Egypt’s Sisi: Erdogan ‘Now Openly Uses the Islamic Factor, ‘ Warns of ‘Wave of Terrorists in Greece in the Future’

The warning from the Egyptian President should put the EU on alert to not tolerate jihadist expansion by Turkey, which is aiming to revive the Ottoman Empire. Back in 2016, Foreign Policy Magazine warned that “Turkey’s new Maps” were “reclaiming the Ottoman Empire” and that Erdogan’s “aggressive nationalism” was “spilling over Turkey’s borders, grabbing land in Greece and Iraq.” But the Turkish threat has been ignored for years. The EU has been aware for quite some time of the deep threat that Turkey poses not just to the region, but to global security. Nevertheless, it has continually bowed to Turkey, which has already opened the gates for illegal Muslim migrants to enter Europe. Turkey also consistently threatens to release more Muslim migrants to invade Greece and the EU.

Now Erdogan is using Syrian mujahideen and has virtually declared war on Greece. In July, Turkey accused Greece of showing “enmity towards Islam” because of its opposition to the conversion of Hagia Sophia to a mosque; in September, Turkish spy planes violated Greece airspace 45 times.

Forced Gender Equality in Politics? German Courts Say it is Unconstitutional

German activists and politicians enacted forced gender parity laws in certain German states, which in theory would result in equal numbers of men and women in politics, but now German courts are striking down these laws as unconstitutional.

According to the courts, such laws, which require parties to have both sexes equally represented on lists of candidates, serve as an unjustified interference with the constitutional rights of political parties.

The Supreme Administrative Court in Brandenburg last abolished the so-called “mandatory parity” on lists of candidates. Unlike most politicians in the state parliament, the court did not agree with the opinion that if there are practically the same number of men and women in society, then both sexes should have the same representation in political bodies. The court has therefore struck down the so-called “half and half” goal for gender representation in the management of public and government affairs.

    • A character in Ayn Rad’s “Atlas Shrugged”; also the name of a commenter here, as “John Galt III” if I recall correctly.

      • He is the author of the book “Ringan Gilhaize”; a story of three generations of Scotsmen who fought for the right of Scots to follow the reformation teachings and not the imposed Roman Catholic religion of the Stuart kings.
        It is based on the history of that time although John Galt was born a little later in 1779. It is a story of a man burning with a desire for justice after his wife and two daughters are killed by the Dragoons under the command of the General (Bloody) Claverhouse. Finally he gets his justice (and revenge).

    • In the near future they hunt Greeks.You know why?Because no country in Europe did punished the Turks for the Genocide of 3 million Christians(Greeks,Armenians,Assyrians).
      On the contrary,the Germans helped them,the Italians also and when the poor Greeks were trying to climp up the French ships to be saved the french sailors cut their hands.
      I was told many such stories from relatives who came having lost everything and family members,killed and raped in front of their eyes.
      Now every EU country,except France, is supporting Turkey against Armenia and Greece in the Aegean,especially Germany.

      • You know who’s really supporting Azeris against Armenia? As in actually supporting, not simply not attacking them? Israel. Funny, you don’t mention them.

        • For anyone who’s going to foolishly challenge this: go ask the mangled corpses of countless Armenian tankers how they felt under the receiving end of all those Israeli Harpy 2’s

  1. “liberty, equality, fraternity” and the Muslim ideology as set of in that hate rag the so called Koran and practiced is just not possible. Just look at these Muslim creatures and how they are in the world. “liberty, equality, fraternity” is everything this lousy fourteen hundred year rotten Godless abomination stands against. When does the alarm go off? When a Pakistani nukes somewhere? Stupid Merkel! Grrrrr.

    • The bloody turk really has no idea of what naxis are, but what is coming is going to make the naxis look like Sunday school children in comparison. Deo Volente!

      • The sneering cannibalism bullying and pushy savage behaviour everywhere.
        Unfortunately childless Frau Angela has convinced the Muslim other-
        wise. How is it possible that so many millions of Europeans could be so incredibly blind deaf and dumb as to not act to make sure Europe could never turn into another bloody. Balkans. Hope-fully PC will evaporate in the emerging war zones.

        • Why you separate the Balkans from Europe,if this is what you mean?
          The Balkans although orthodox(i know that the west Christians do not like the east Christians) and Serbs had given a very good lesson to Nazis during the war along with the Greeks( battle of Kriti)and they are a part of Europe.
          This year the Greeks have saved Europe,from the vandals trying to come north to you and even now the Turks constantly besiege our borders in the River Evros by using Jihadjists,Pakistanis and Afganis
          We are all the time on alert.Only Austria and France are with us.
          As if God has put us in this part of the continent as a breakwater,to suffer from every attack of the savages from the East.
          Try to understand us and pray for us because we will come to war with these savages.

  2. I know that Israel helps the Azeris by giving them weapons and the reason is that they want to use the numerous Azeris who live in Iran against the Iranians,but what this has to do with the help that the West gave to Turkey during the genocide of the Christians in Pontos and Asia minor?
    I refer to natives who were living there before the invasion of the Ottomans from Mongolia.
    You know something?The Greeks are(only 2 thousand live now in Konstantinople) in Asia Minor since the 8th century BC and in Pontos(Black sea)since the days of the Argonauts,that is,Prehistory.The same applies to Armenians*,until the barbarians came and since then are supported by all the big countries of the West.
    Now the West will experience what we have suffered all those centuries .

    *Armenia took the name of the Thessalian Argonaut Armenos who lived there and ruled the country.
