Gates of Vienna News Feed 10/29/2020

Multiple jihad attacks took place throughout France as angry Muslims reacted to statements by President Emmanuel Macron. Three people were killed — one was beheaded — by a mujahid shouting “Allahu Akhbar” in a church in Nice. Police in Avignon shot an armed attacker dead when he tried to assault them. Meanwhile, a man was arrested in Saudi Arabia after allegedly attacking guards at the French consulate with a knife.

In other news, former Malaysian Prime Minister Mahathir Mohamad said that Muslims have the right to kill millions of French people.

Did You Know Bill Gates is Part of the Stimulus Negotiations?

As the U.S. Congress debates a second, but stalled, stimulus bill to help Americans hurt by the pandemic shutdowns, one odd figure is playing a role in the negotiations: none other than Microsoft billionaire Bill Gates.

If it makes you wonder why Gates, who isn’t an elected official, would have anything to do with the stimulus, you’re probably not alone. But he is, and he told Andy Serwer of Yahoo Finance’s All Market Summit virtual event that he is working to get billions of dollars added into the stimulus package to give to Gavi, the Vaccine Alliance.

If he’s successful, that money would not go to struggling Americans but, rather, outside of America for vaccines in developing countries. Gates admitted that he wants “billions” for Gavi, evidently beyond the $1.6 billion that the current administration has already pledged to Gavi for the fiscal years 2020-2023.

U.S. GDP for Q3 Increased at 33.1% Annualized Rate, Beating Expectations

U.S. gross domestic product increased at an annualized rate of 33.1% in the third quarter of 2020, surpassing the 32% estimate produced by a Dow Jones survey of economists.

The economic boom was a record for the U.S. in the post World War II era. Previously, the record was 16.7% growth in the first quarter of 1950.

14 DC Police Officers Injured During Wednesday Riots — One Lost Eyesight

Rioters in Washington, D.C., injured 14 police officers in the chaos that ensued during the city’s second night of protests over the death of Karon Hylton. The injuries include one officer losing eyesight after being targeted with a laser.

DC Metropolitan Police Chief Peter Newsham told reporters on Thursday that 14 of his officers sustained injuries during overnight protests, according to a tweet from Associated Press reporter Mike Balsamo. The injures included eight officers being struck by incendiary devices, one eye injury from a laser, four struck by rocks or bricks, and one sprained ankle, the chief stated.

79% of Americans Think the News Media is Politically Biased

A survey published by the Pew Research Center, from data collected earlier in the year, shows that Americans have little faith that they are receiving fair and balanced reporting from their media outlets.

The poll, conducted in February and March, shows that as many as 79 percent of Americans think news organizations are biased toward one side in the political and ideological schism. This is an increase of 7 percentage points compared to just a year before.

AIER Hosts Top Epidemiologists, Authors of the Great Barrington Declaration

From October 1-4, 2020, the American Institute for Economic Research hosted a remarkable meeting of top epidemiologists, economists, and journalists, to discuss the global emergency created by the unprecedented use of state compulsion in the management of the Covid-19 pandemic. The result is The Great Barrington Declaration, which urges a “Focused Protection” strategy.

After a brief explanation of the strategy, and a discussion of the astonishing costs of lockdown, the Declaration concludes: “Schools and universities should be open for in-person teaching. Extracurricular activities, such as sports, should be resumed. Young low-risk adults should work normally, rather than from home. Restaurants and other businesses should open. Arts, music, sport and other cultural activities should resume.”

The primary authors and signers of the document are:

  • Dr. Martin Kulldorff, Professor, Medicine, Harvard Medical School.
  • Dr. Jay Bhattacharya, Professor, Medicine, Stanford University.
  • Dr. Sunetra Gupta, Professor, Theoretical Epidemiology, University of Oxford.

Anti-American ‘Orders Project’ Is Encouraging Military to Stand Down to Leftist Terrorists After the Election

This is another aspect of the color revolution coup against Trump.

An organization of attorneys, calling themselves The Orders Project, is effectively encouraging military personnel to refuse orders to keep peace in the streets following the election if left-wing ANTIFA and Black Lives Matter terrorists lay waste to cities.

Washington D.C. National Guard Major Adam DeMarco, a Democrat operative who ran unsuccessfully for U.S. Senate in Maryland in 2018, is exploiting his military bona fides to push his left-wing partisan agenda against President Trump with the help of the fake news media. He is complaining that the National Guard did too much to prevent rioting terrorists from spreading their orgy of destruction following the death of crackhead serial felon George Floyd in Minneapolis.

DeMarco is a posterchild for The Orders Project, a left-wing lawfare group that is attempting to convince U.S. troops to stand down and allow the country to be decimated by anarchists who want President Trump removed from office following the election.

‘Damning’ Hunter Biden Documents Mysteriously Vanish in Transit to Los Angeles, Tucker Says

An employee at a sorting facility noticed that the package had been opened and arrived empty.

“There is always a lot going on that we don’t have time to get to on the air,” the “Tucker Carlson Tonight” host told his audience, “but there is something specific going on behind the screens that we did feel like we should tell you about.

“On Monday of this week, we received from a source a collection of confidential documents related to the Biden family,” Carlson went on. “We believe they are authentic, they’re real and they’re damning.”

Carlson added he was contacted by the source while in Los Angeles preparing to interview Tony Bobulinski, a former business associate of Hunter Biden, who detailed Joe’s purported knowledge of his son’s foreign dealings on the Fox News show Tuesday night.

“We texted a producer in New York and asked him to send those documents to us in L.A, “ Carlson explained. “And he did that, so Monday afternoon of this week, he shipped the documents overnight to California with a large national carrier, a brand-name company that we’ve used, you’ve used, countless times with never a single problem.”

But the documents never arrived in Los Angeles, Carlson said.

“Tuesday morning we received word from the shipping company that our package had been opened and the contents were missing. The documents had disappeared.”

Disney Considers Suing Newsom as California Governor Doubles Down on Closures

When California public health officials announced guidelines for reopening theme parks that essentially guarantee that parks in Los Angeles, Orange, and San Diego counties won’t be able to open until perhaps mid-2021, heads of the respective theme parks rightfully blasted Gavin Newsom, citing their successes in reopening in other states and countries and alleging that his guidelines have no scientific basis.

The next day, the Executive Director of the California Attractions and Parks Association, of which Disney is a member, said “that a lawsuit was under consideration and ‘all options are open at this point.’“

By Thursday, sources within the industry and within Disney, speaking on condition of anonymity, stated that one option Disney was looking into was was moving as many jobs as possible out of California. Obviously the company can’t pick Disneyland up and move, but the company has a massive footprint in California, both in Los Angeles and Orange counties. WDW Pro alluded to that potential in a Thursday evening blog post.

Glenn Greenwald Quits the Intercept Over ‘Censorship’ Of Hunter Biden Article

Prominent journalist Glenn Greenwald on Thursday resigned from The Intercept, a news organization he co-founded, after editors sought to “censor” an article he wrote about The Post’s exposé on documents retrieved from a Hunter Biden laptop.

Greenwald is best known for his 2013 reporting on leaked mass-surveillance documents from former National Security Agency contractor Edward Snowden. His work for The Guardian won the Pulitzer Prize.

“The Intercept’s editors, in violation of my contractual right of editorial freedom, censored an article I wrote this week, refusing to publish it unless I remove all sections critical of Democratic presidential candidate Joe Biden,” Greenwald wrote in a blog post.

“[T]he brute censorship this week of my article — about the Hunter Biden materials and Joe Biden’s conduct regarding Ukraine and China, as well my critique of the media’s rank-closing attempt, in a deeply unholy union with Silicon Valley and the ‘intelligence community,’ to suppress its revelations — eroded the last justification I could cling to for staying.”

Last Friday, Mayor Ted Wheeler’s campaign released a statement taking challenger Sarah Iannarone to task for “writing in violent despots like Ho Chi Minh and Joseph Stalin on her 2016 ballot.” The tweet, from May 1, 2016, also includes write-in votes for Mao Zedong, Che Guevara, Fidel Castro, Vladimir Lenin, plus others.

Irresponsible State Leadership Caused Many COVID-19 Deaths

Another major error that drove up the death toll was state leadership’s decision to place infected patients into nursing homes, against federal guidelines.9 According to an analysis10,11 by the Foundation for Research on Equal Opportunity, which included data reported by May 22, 2020, an average of 42% of all COVID-19 deaths in the U.S. had occurred in nursing homes, assisted living and other long-term care facilities.

This is extraordinary, considering this group accounts for just 0.62% of the population. By and large, nursing homes are ill equipped to care for COVID-19 infected patients.12 While they’re set up to care for elderly patients — whether they are generally healthy or have chronic health problems — these facilities are rarely equipped to quarantine and care for people with highly infectious disease.

It’s logical to assume that comingling infected patients with noninfected ones in a nursing home would result in exaggerated death rates, as the elderly are far more prone to die from any infection, including the common cold. We also learned, early on, that the elderly were disproportionately vulnerable to severe SARS-CoV-2 infection.

Yet ordering infected patients into nursing homes with the most vulnerable population of all is exactly what several Democrat governors decided to do, including New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo,13 Pennsylvania Gov. Tom Wolf, New Jersey Gov. Phil Murphy, Michigan Gov. Gretchen Whitmer and California Gov. Gavin Newsom.

ProPublica published an investigation14 June 16, 2020, comparing a New York nursing home that followed Cuomo’s misguided order with one that refused, opting to follow the federal guidelines instead. The difference was stark.

By June 18, the Diamond Hill nursing home — which followed Cuomo’s directive — had lost 18 residents to COVID-19, thanks to lack of isolation and inadequate infection control. Half the staff (about 50 people) and 58 patients were infected and fell ill.

In comparison, Van Rensselaer Manor, a 320-bed nursing home located in the same county as Diamond Hill, which refused to follow the state’s directive and did not admit any patient suspected of having COVID-19, did not have a single COVID-19 death. A similar trend has been observed in other areas.

[Comment: Wilful murder, not irresponsible leaders. Akin to the old days of tossing an infected body into the fort that was under seige.]

Following a failed outrage campaign to have Rogan’s podcast with Jones deplatformed altogether, critics then turned to the content itself, accusing Rogan of facilitating dangerous conspiracy theories about COVID-19 vaccines.

Looking Back on 35 Years as an Amiga User

I had owned the Mac for just one week when I went to a different local computer store, Chaney Computer in Newport News, Virginia, to purchase a ($45) 10-count box of 3.5-inch floppy disks. My mother waited in the car while I ran in.

And there on the table I saw it.

The Amiga — the first one I had ever encountered. It was sitting there, fired up and running an animation demo of some sort. All of the things that made me so excited about the system before flooded back to me right there. I bought the box of floppies, but they never made it into that Macintosh.

Later that night at the dinner table, I started off a conversation I had been frenziedly honing in my mind all afternoon. And, I carried it off well, it seems; my parents agreed to changing gears, and the next day my father returned the Macintosh to the Apple dealer and we went and put a deposit down on the $1,285 Amiga. (Incidentally, It was always called the “Amiga 1000”, but no one really noticed until the Amiga 500 and 2000 landed in 1987.)

Mindlessness Fuels Tyranny

It’s no surprise that Dr. Anthony Fauci, with a vested interest in perpetuating the current Covid-19 narrative, has called the Great Barrington Declaration “nonsense and very dangerous.” Just as angry and closed-minded are the social media reactions from some ordinary people.

We will lose many lives, they warn, if we give credence to the Declaration. The fearful are sure only they, not the signers of the Declaration, care about the lives of others.

As Don Boudreaux writes, “Much of humanity today appears to perversely enjoy being duped into the irrational fear that any one of us, regardless of age or health, is at the mercy of a brutal beast categorically more lethal than is any other danger that we’ve ever confronted.”

Those reacting against the Declaration seem to be stuck in time, living in March 2020 when ignorance of the virus’s virulence was peaking. There is so much more we now know about Covid-19, yet the fearful will not consider new information or alternative theories.

NSA Remains Silent on Secret Backdoors in Popular Tech

The National Security Agency (NSA) is refusing to reveal its new policies on the placing of back doors into commercial tech products. While the agency may argue these backdoors are valuable for national security, they present privacy concerns and are a risk to national security should foreign adversaries manage to exploit them.

Edward Snowden, a former NSA employee, now labeled a traitor, revealed how the NSA enters into agreements with US-based technology companies to give them special access (back doors) to their products. These backdoors allow the NSA and other government agencies to access personal data without a warrant.

Our COVID-19 Plan Would Minimize Mortality and Lockdown-Induced Collateral Damage

The “Focused Protection” plan in the Great Barrington Declaration would minimize both COVID-19 mortality and lockdown-induced collateral damage on other health outcomes. In line with pre-2020 pandemic preparedness plans, the declaration calls for better protecting the old and other high-risk groups, for whom COVID-19 is more dangerous than influenza. By contrast, for children, COVID-19 is less dangerous than influenza. Children and low-risk young adults should be allowed to live near normal lives as they face greater medical, psychological and economic harms from lockdowns than from COVID-19. Immunity among low-risk young adults could also shorten the length of the pandemic, making it easier for older people to protect themselves.

Denying in-person teaching to students is harmful to their education and physical and mental health, with working-class children hardest hit. Online schooling puts a disproportional burden on our children, despite their own minimal risk.

For ages 1 to 15, Sweden kept day care and schools open throughout the height of the pandemic, and among the 1.8 million children of that age, there were zero COVID-19 deaths without masks used or physical distancing. Neither was there any excess risk for in-person teachers compared with the average of other professions.

Some argue that it is impossible to separate older and younger generations. While 100% separation is impossible, lockdowns have “successfully” shifted infection risk from the professional class to the working class and nursing home residents.

It is no more challenging to shift infection risk from high-mortality-risk older people to low-mortality-risk younger adults, including the young bankers, attorneys, journalists and scientists who are now protected.

The Dems’ Deplorable Word

“If we can’t rule America, then let there be no America!”

Is this the corner into which the Democrats have driven themselves? I think it is.

In 1955, the world lived in fear of a nuclear war that would destroy all life on earth. Memories of World War II were quite vivid, and people didn’t find it hard to imagine something even worse.

In that year C.S. Lewis published another Chronicle of Narnia, “The Magician’s Nephew.” In it he told of a world called Charn. There, in ancient times, two queens battled for supremacy. When she was about to lose that war, Queen Jadis spoke a magic spell, The Deplorable Word, which wiped out every living thing in Charn, leaving only dust and ruins.

Are Democrats getting desperate enough to speak their own Deplorable Word? Consider their policies, as proposed by their candidates…

They have reached a point where there is almost nothing they won’t do to get power. Power to impose their socialist fantasies on 350 million people. Power to stifle even the most trivial dissent. Power to re-engineer all our basic social institutions. Power to end America as we know it-forever.

Communists have always liked to say you have to break eggs to make an omelet, although never in history did they ever get past the egg-breaking stage. But what we’re talking about here is breaking all the eggs. All of them. And depend on this: if they ever do get back into power, Democrats will change the rules so that they’ll never be turned out of power again. Not without a mammoth expenditure of blood, toil, tears, and sweat.

Trump’s Electoral Path to Victory: Will it be Enough to Overcome “The Steal”?

Big City voter fraud is an acquired skill of the Democratic Party. Any Republican national candidate has to overcome a percentage of stolen votes. But this year, the Covid-19 “plandemic” has provided the Democrats with the perfect backdrop for massive cheating: mail-in ballots. The use of fraudulent mail-in ballots and post-election ballot harvesting is well-documented and will occur at unprecedented levels.

In addition to the normal Democratic Party cheating, Tom Fitton of Judicial Watch has recently exposed that 353 out of 3,141 of the nation’s counties have more registered voters than their current population.

So the question is how far will the fraud go and where will it occur? The real concern is in the eight swing states of Florida, Ohio, Pennsylvania, Michigan, Wisconsin, Minnesota, Nevada, and New Hampshire. These eight states will determine the election.

Viral Video Shows Philly Cops Smash SUV Windows, Pull Driver Out

Viral video from a night of raucous protests in Philadelphia shows baton-wielding cops smashing a car’s windows, yanking the driver out and removing a kid from the backseat.

The edited 37-second clip posted to Twitter — recorded just before 2 a.m. Tuesday, according to the Philadelphia Inquirer — begins with at least a dozen people running down a street ahead of dozens of uniformed cops.

The Inquirer, which obtained a two-minute video of the incident, reported that crowds of people were throwing objects at the officers.

The cops then approach an SUV in the middle of the street, surround it, smash some of its windows out and pull the driver and a passenger from the car, the video shows.

Attacker Shouting ‘Allahu Akbar’ Killed by Police in Avignon, France — Reports

An armed man has been shot dead after attacking a group of police officers who were patrolling the streets of Avignon in southeastern France.

The incident took place at approximately 11:15 local time. According to media reports, police initially deployed non-lethal munitions to stop the assailant but were forced to open fire with live rounds after he lunged at officers.

The exact nature of the incident remains unclear as French media outlets have issued conflicting reports about whether the man was armed with a knife or a firearm.

Numerous French media outlets reported that the man shouted “Allahu akbar” during the incident. However, in the hours following the incident it was subsequently reported that the man was a member of the far-right Mouvance Identitaire (Identitarian movement).

Three people have died in a knife attack at a church in Nice, in what French President Emmanuel Macron said was an “Islamist terrorist attack”.

Scotland: Government Threatens Prosecution of ‘Hate Speech’ In Homes

Scotland’s justice minister says he intends to clamp down on “hate speech” in private homes under a new bill that critics warn could make possessing the Bible a crime.

The bill leaves out a crucial defense included in other U.K. hate crime legislation, which protects conversations in the home from police intervention, free speech advocates point out, according to the U.K.’s Christian Institute.

Humza Haroon Yousaf, the cabinet secretary for justice, issued the warning in a conversation with the Justice Committee about the proposed legislation.

The Christian Institute said Yousaf is refusing to provide a “dwelling defense,” insisting that “hateful speech” in the home should be criminalized.

Lord Bracadale, the judge whose recommendations led to the bill, later advised members of the Scottish Parliament that they should think carefully about allowing a public order offense to extend into the private sphere.

He said concern about such actions are “well-founded.”

The Times of London reported the justice secretary said conversations over the dinner table that incite hatred must be prosecuted under the law.

A Letter to Time Magazine Editors

Have you noticed that Joe Biden intends to open our borders to unlimited illegal and legal immigration? Have you noticed what’s happening to our country, its quality of life, our culture, our cities and our language? Have you noticed what’s happening to our children rioting and the rule of law? Have you noticed the latest lootings and riots in Philadelphia? Do you think any of it will improve with the current onslaught of immigrants streaming into America?

This past week, Time CEO and publisher Edward Felsenthal promoted “The Great Reset” of America toward a better future. What he didn’t do: actually deal with what is really happening to us. Why? He sits in his plush leather seat in a plush office in New York City, but doesn’t have a clue as to what’s happening to all of us average Americans. He then published an article by Ciara Nugent about how we’re going to make it a better future by building better cities. Both of them would not touch the fact that we remain on course to add 100 million immigrants to our country from a world exploding with more immigrants to-be as the third world adds 83 million new babies, net gain, annually.

None of the top mainstream media will educate Americans as to what’s coming. Therefore, I responded with two letters. I urge you to make these letters your own and write Time with demands to address our future. Thank you, Frosty

It’s now confirmed that the jihadist in Nice, who yelled “Allahu Akbar” during the attack, arrived in Europe as a boat migrant.

“He entered France from Italy — travelling through the southern Italian city of Bari on 9 October — after reaching the Mediterranean island of Lampedusa on 20 September,” reports Sky News.

Kaczynski’s Video on Pro-Abortion Protests in Poland Goes Viral, Bypasses Media and Opposition Narrative

We are living in an era where the media is increasingly adept at manufacturing reality. What a politician actually says is less important than how journalists later portray it and how commentators and other political players use it to further their political goals.

The opposition is trying to use this time-tested strategy since Tuesday evening following Law and Justice (PiS) leader Jaroslaw Kaczynski’s online speech concerning abortion and the ongoing anti-abortion protests.

PiS’s leader referred to facts. He stated that the protesters are attacking churches, profaning statues and interrupting church services. He evaluated that we must defend ourselves in such cases and urged people, just like other nationalist politicians are doing, to oppose the vandalization of religious sites.

What You Need to Know About ‘The Great Reset’

Story at-a-glance

“The Great Reset” is a new “social contract” that ties you to it through an electronic ID linked to your bank account and health records, and a “social credit” ID that will dictate every facet of your life

While the COVID-19 pandemic is being used as a justification for the Great Reset movement, the agenda has nothing to do with health and everything to do with a long-term plan to monitor and control the world through digital surveillance and artificial intelligence.

The Great Reset and the Fourth Industrial Revolution are rebranded terms for technocracy and the old “New World Order” melded with the transhumanist movement.

Technocracy is an economic system of resource allocation that revolves around technology — in particular artificial intelligence, digital surveillance and Big Data collection — and the digitization of industry and government, which in turn allows for the automation of social engineering and social rule, thereby doing away with the need for democratically elected leadership.

While the real plan is to usher in a tech-driven dystopia free of democratic controls, they speak of this plan as a way to bring us back into harmony with nature…

In his report, Corbett summarizes the Great Reset thus:

“At base, the Great Reset is nothing more, and nothing less, than a great propaganda, marketing rollout campaign for a new brand that the would-be global elite are trying to shove down the public’s throats … It’s just a fresh coat of lipstick on a very old pig. This is The New World Order, just redefined. It’s just a new label for it.”

And, as explained by Corbett, for those who forgot about what the New World Order was/is all about, it was all about “centralization of control into fewer hands, globalization [and] transformation of society through Orwellian surveillance technologies.”

In other words, it’s technocracy, where we the people know nothing about the ruling elite while every aspect of our lives is surveilled, tracked and manipulated for their gain. Four key take-aways from Corbett’s research into the Great Reset are:

1. The Great Reset has NOTHING to do with a virus, the COVID-19 pandemic or anything else related to public health.

2. The Great Reset is a coordinated agenda that has been years in the making — The pandemic is simply being used as a convenient “cover” for an elitist, globalist agenda that has been planned for decades.

3. The Great Reset is NOT the end of globalization — On the contrary, it is globalization turbo-charged. As noted by Schwab in the policy book, “COVID-19: The Great Reset,” co-written with Thierry Malleret and cited in Corbett’s report:

“If no one power can enforce order, our world will suffer from a ‘global order deficit.’ Unless individual nations and international organizations succeed in finding solutions to better collaborate at the global level, we risk entering an ‘age of entropy’ in which retrenchment, fragmentation, anger and parochialism will increasingly define our global landscape, making it less intelligible and more disorderly.”

In other words, there’s no room for the spontaneously arising social order that occurs when people are allowed to freely interact. Instead, there must be “one power” to enforce whatever the desired social-environmental-economic-geopolitical order is.

4. This process is not meant to end — The end of the pandemic will not be the end of this totalitarian, digital enslavement agenda. The plan is not to “reset” the world back to some earlier state that will allow us all to start over with a cleaner environment and more equitable social structures. The plan is to circumvent democracy and shift global governance into the hands of the few.

  1. (“An organization of attorneys, calling themselves The Orders Project, is effectively encouraging military personnel to refuse orders to keep peace in the streets following the election if left-wing ANTIFA and Black Lives Matter terrorists lay waste to cities.”)

    Is this not sedition, or is the law no longer being enforced in the USA?

  2. “NEON NETTLE) — Officers will enter people’s homes and break up their Christmas dinners if families are suspected of breaching COVID-19 lockdown rules over the festive period, UK police chiefs are warning.”

    Pity they are not so enthusiastic about addressing real crime. Non law enforcement is one of the reasons I left theUK.

  3. “The former Prime Minister of Malaysia reacted to a series of Islamic terror attacks in France by tweeting, “Muslims have a right to be angry and to kill millions of French people for the massacres of the past.”

    Mahathir Mohammed is a despicable creature who has during his career demonstrated that he is anti British, anti Western and anti white – while remaining within the British Commonwealth of Nations and taking British grant aid hand over fist. When I was in Malaysia, there were many rumours of his corruption and abuse of power yet he was eventually allowed to step down with dignity, something he did not deserve.

  4. I suspect that this recent terrorism attack in France has to do with the Franco-Turkish confrontation. Erdogan may be more dangerous than French people thought.

  5. “France and the entire world are waking up. Paris WAS cautious about calling those assaults Islamic / Muslim terror. Now it is changing. The virus of political correctness is gone and people are no longer shy to spell it out”. The Walrus.

  6. News of F**kistan, which is still marked as Russia on the world map.

    The mufti of Chechnya warns French tourists in Russia and calls Macron’s supporters enemies

    The Mufti of Chechnya Salah-Haji Mezhiyev said that he considers all the French who support French President Emmanuel Macron to be enemies, regardless of where they are – in France or in Russia.

    “Ordinary French people who do not support Macron can be calm both in Moscow and in Grozny. And if they do, they are our enemies too! ” – declared Mezhiev.

    The mufti admitted that the Chechens might have questions to the French supporters.

    “How do we know about the mood of this or that Frenchman? We will ask, – said Mezhiev. “And then … Macron is far away, he is close, so it may turn out that he will have to answer for the words of his president.”

    • Hmmm, let me do some simple math for you, rounds cost about 25 cents, deporting one of these bloody savages costs over 100,000 grand per savage, so there ya go! ?

      • One hopes that massed free world
        nukes are ready to respond at a moments notice to any Pakistani nuclear shot for the misfit evil Lala.

    Investigators say it could be a reaction to a video that called for “Islamic resistance”.
    Resistance against what?
    Those low lives and their families get pampered and sugar coated by our society for decades now.
