Lockdown Blow as German Industrial Production Drops Almost Twice as Much as Expected

BERLIN (AP) — Industrial production in Germany, Europe’s biggest economy, stagnated in December after seven consecutive months of gains, official data showed Monday.

The figure from the Economy Ministry followed data on Friday that showed factory orders dropping nearly 1.9% in December compared with the previous month, nearly double the drop economists had expected.

Alt-Tech Got the Blame for the Capitol Riots, But the Data Tells a Different Story

The Capitol Hill events may have served as no more than a handy justification to obliterate Parler, a free speech app popular among conservatives from the internet, results of a new study indicate.

Parler, an alternative to Twitter, started to gain in popularity shortly after the disputed November presidential election in the US, as censorship increased on Big Tech corporate platforms. A thorn in the side of many media and political circles, it was effectively destroyed in the wake of the January 6 violence in Washington, vilified as the main place where protesters organized.

The New York Times also said that Gab was a place where the riots were organized and has yet to issue a retraction.

But now, a paper published by the George Washington University’s Program on Extremism shows that 73 out of 223 government documents looking into pressing charges against participants in the Capitol Hill unrest mention Facebook as that online platform where they communicated and organized.

“Republicans came within 31,751 votes of winning the majority,” Wasserman wrote in a tweet, shortly after Democrat Anthony Brindisi conceded to former GOP Rep. Claudia Tenney (R-NY) in the race for New York’s 22nd Congressional District.

AOC Lies, Claims She Never Accused Ted Cruz of Inciting Her Murder, Refuses to Apologize

“So, um, that’s not the quote,” responded AOC, adding, “And I will not apologize for what I said.”

Big Brother is Spying on You in Thousands of Ways, And All of That Info Now Goes Into Centralized “Fusion Systems”

Big Brother is watching you. Sadly, most people don’t realize how extensive the surveillance grid has now become. As you drive to work or to school, license plate readers are systematically tracking where you travel. In major cities, thousands of highly advanced security cameras (many equipped with facial recognition technology) are monitoring your every move. If authorities detect that you are doing something suspicious, they can quickly pull up your criminal, financial and medical records. Of course if they want to dig deeper, your phone and your computer are constantly producing a treasure trove of surveillance data. Nothing that you do on either one of them is ever private.

In the past, compiling all of that information would take a great deal of time. But now tech giants such as Microsoft, Motorola, Cisco and Palantir are selling “fusion systems” to governments all over the planet. These “fusion systems” can instantly integrate surveillance data from thousands of different sources, and this has totally transformed how law enforcement is conducted in many of our largest cities.

Arthur Holland Michel is a senior fellow at the Carnegie Council for Ethics in International Affairs, and he was given a tour of a “fusion system” that is used by the city of Chicago called Citigraf…

CDC: Mask Order Will be ‘Further Enforced’ By ‘Federal Authorities’

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention’s (CDC) latest order, requiring individuals to wear masks when using public transportation or residing in transportation hubs, will be “further enforced by other federal authorities,” the agency announced in its order, which went into effect this week.

Under the order, individuals are required to wear masks while using public transportation, which includes “awaiting, boarding, disembarking, or traveling on airplanes, ships, ferries, trains, subways, buses, taxis, and ride-shares as they are traveling into, within, or out of the United States and U.S. territories,” per the CDC.

COVID-19: Request Investigation at State Legislatures Health/Science Committees

The lives of Americans continue to be destroyed over COVID-19. Our freedom and liberties have been under constant, non-stop assault by governors, mayors and non-elected officials for a whole year next month.

A COVID-19 vaccine has and is being touted as the only way to stop the spread. On Friday, Sean Hannity was on his vaccine promotion kick, again. I switched to music. At the bottom of this column are new items in case you missed them.

I can’t stress strongly enough: Before you get a COVID-19 experimental vaccine, you need to get facts about the number of deaths and severe reactions already recorded. Safe is not a word to be associated with this COVID-19 experimental vaccine regardless of who manufactured it.

This column is about science. You know, science — the god for Democrats when it comes to destroying this country over COVID-19. For the past year, governors, mayors and state health “experts” have all relied on one of the most despicable characters one can imagine: Dr. Anthony Fauci.

I am fully cognizant this column will upset people. It upset the hell out of me once I started reading about viruses and how they are scientifically detected. How not just Americans, but humans around the globe have been lied to. It has sickened me to my soul for months.

F-35 Pilot Reveals the Disappointing Truth About the Fighter’s Cockpit

Touchscreens, magic helmets, voice input… — the pilots don’t want any of it

Facebook’s Growth Stalls in the US and Canada

Constant censorship on Facebook seems to be having a major effect as Facebook is losing Daily Active Users in the US and Canada.

Towards the end of January, Facebook released its annual performance update report. The report showed that Facebook’s main platform added 299 million active users in 2020, which is not surprising considering the pandemic forced people to stay home.

However, a closer look at the data reveals that the social media giant lost Daily Active Users (DAU) in the US. Overall, Facebook added 5 million DAU on 2019 but it lost daily actives in the US throughout the year.

Investigating Super Bowl ‘Farmer Protest’ Ad: Greta Toolkit, Ties to George Soros and a Track That Glorifies Bhindranwale

Social media was abuzz on Monday after it was claimed by many international sympathisers of the ‘farmer protests’ in India that an ad in support of the protests was aired during the Super Bowl, a mega sporting event in the United States of America. The claims were only partially accurate but there is a lot more than what meets the eye here.

The immediate reaction from people on social media was that Super Bowl ads are extremely expensive. According to reports, a 32-second national ad cost $5.5 million. Therefore, how did the ‘protesters’ manage such a hefty amount?

As it turns out, it was not a national but a regional ad. And as such, cost only ten thousand dollars since it was aired only in the Fresco County area in California. According to reports, the ad was created by Indian-American Raj Sodhi-Layne with a couple of her friends and it was she who signed the contract for air time with CBS.

Leftists Have Collective Meltdown Over Tom Brady Not Wearing a Mask

Leftists on Twitter had a complete meltdown over the fact that Tom Brady didn’t wear a mask at any point before or after the Super Bowl.

Brady led the Tampa Bay Buccaneers to an easy 31-9 victory over the Kansas City Chiefs to extend his record-breaking Super Bowl winning streak to seven.

Considered to be the greatest NFL player of all time, Brady is despised by the left because of their perception that he once supported President Trump and has managed to remain apolitical over the last five years of the culture wars.

Nevada Bill Would Allow Tech Companies to Create Governments

CARSON CITY, Nev. (AP) — Planned legislation to establish new business areas in Nevada would allow technology companies to effectively form separate local governments.

The zones would permit companies with large areas of land to form governments carrying the same authority as counties, including the ability to impose taxes, form school districts and courts and provide government services.

Terraria Creator Cancels Stadia Version After Google Disabled His Account, Deleted His Data, Locked His Gmail

Google’s game streaming service Stadia has been met with a mixed response from fans and enthusiasm among some of its users has started to wane. With over 30 million sales, Terraria is one of the best selling games of all time and would likely have been a valuable addition to the Stadia platform.

Yet even as the founder of the company that could have brought this popular game to Stadia, Spinks wasn’t immune from Google’s unexplained account restrictions.

Fox News host Tucker Carlson slammed Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau the latter’s comments in September praising COVID-19 fears as an “opportunity for a reset” to “accelerate our pre-pandemic efforts to reimagine economic systems that actually address global challenges like extreme poverty, inequality, and climate change.”

“Watch this video from September, you may not have seen it — it wasn’t played much in this country,” Carlson said before rolling the footage. “This is the Prime Minister of Canada Justin Trudeau speaking to the United Nations.”

“Oh, ‘this is our chance,’ says Justin Trudeau,” Carlson noted, mockingly. “Not our chance to save you from a virus with a 99% survival rate, you’ll almost certainly be fine, and they’re fully aware of that.”

Carlson continued, “‘This is our chance’ to impose totally unprecedented social controls on the population, in order to bypass democracy and change everything to conform with their weird academic theories that have never been tested in the real world, and by the way don’t actually make sense. This is their chance.”

Breaking Point: Europe is in Revolt Against Lockdown

Protests, riots and civil unrest across the continent. People want their lives back

Across Europe, Covid restrictions have changed life beyond recognition. From London to Ljubljana and most places in between, people have been shut up indoors and huge economic, educational and health sacrifices have been made.

But something is starting to stir among the people of Europe. There has been a wave of protests — and, in some cases, riots — across the continent.

In the Netherlands, there is a national lockdown. Pubs, bars and non-essential shops are shut. There is also a 9pm curfew, enforced by fines. Last week, there were several days of rioting against that curfew. Rioters burned cars and pelted police with stones.

These riots helped expose two things: the public’s growing impatience with lockdown rules on the one hand and the arrogance of the ruling elite on the other.

Following the coronavirus vaccines from Pfizer-BioNTech, Moderna and AstraZeneca, this is the fourth vaccine approved in Hungary.

In EU Boom of Electric Cars

ACEA, major gains in Germany, France Italy

(ANSA) — BELGRADE, FEB 4 — In the fourth quarter of 2020, nearly one in six passenger cars registered in the European Union was an electrically-chargeable vehicle (16.5%), the European Automobile Manufacturers Association (ACEA) said today.

“Stimulus packages introduced by governments to boost demand, following the unprecedented impact of COVID-19 on car sales, sought to stimulate alternatively-powered vehicles in particular, further driving demand for low and zero-emission cars,” ACEA said.

According to the association’s data, major gains were posted by Germany (+236.6%), France (+156.7%) and Italy (+108.9%).

Over a Dozen People in German Nursing Home Test Positive for COVID Variant After Pfizer Jabs

More than a dozen elderly care home residents in north-western Germany have been infected with the UK coronavirus strain around a week after receiving the second dose of the Pfizer vaccine, local authorities have said.

The first positive Covid-19 cases in the care home in the town of Belm, near Osnabrueck, were discovered on February 2 following routine daily rapid testing, the local authorities said in a statement. The care home administration then tested all the facility residents and employees to discover that a total of 14 people were infected.

Analysis of the test samples also revealed that all those infected had a strain of coronavirus first detected in the UK and considered to be much more infectious than the original. Even more worrying was the fact that all those infected received their second dose of the Pfizer-BioNTech vaccine no later than January 25.

Petition Against COVID-19 ‘Vaccine Passports’ Hits 37,000 Signatures Amid Reports UK Govt Hatching Travel Scheme

A petition calling on the UK government to commit against implementing a so-called Covid-19 vaccine ‘passport’ has received more than 37,000 signatures, as Boris Johnson’s cabinet refuses to rule the idea out.

The latest petition demanding that the government not roll out the controversial ‘passport’ idea was heading towards 40,000 signatures on Friday, amid reports that such a system was being actively developed for travel abroad.

A vaccine passport would allow Brits who have been vaccinated against the coronavirus to regain a certain level of freedom — including the ability to travel — that would be prohibited to others.

Poland and Hungary in the Crosshairs of the EU’s Commission, Says Vera Jourova

Remix News reported earlier on a study showing that countries that emerged from behind the Iron Curtain are severely underrepresented in the top leadership of EU institutions. Yet, for even the few who did achieve a high-ranking position, those picks seems to be an alignment with the ultra-liberal ruling opinion elite and have an unconditional loyalty to the powerful “old-member” bureaucracy represented by liberal member states like Germany and France.

A prime example of such total conformity with the EU’s liberal ethos is Poland’s Donald Tusk, the former president of the European Council, who is known to have joined ranks on party-political lines with forces critical of his native Poland’s Christian values and stance against uncontrolled mass migration. Another personality from the former Eastern bloc, the Slovakian vice-president of the European Commission, Maros Šefcovic, has been showering praise at the embattled leader of the Commission, Ursula von der Leyen, praising what is widely regarded a shambolic vaccine acquisition process even as EU member states still facing a severe shortage of the drug. Despite the widely criticized failure of the European Commission, in a recent statement he had famously tried to reassure critics of the European vaccination process saying, “We should not have any concerns about whether we will have enough good quality, safe and tested vaccines in Europe, and I am sure that in a few weeks or months we will have discussions about how to share even these vaccines with our neighbors…”

Report: UK Government Considering Knocking on Doors of Vaccine Refusniks

The UK government is considering a plan to despatch council staff to knock on the doors of those who have refused to take a coronavirus vaccine, in an effort to coerce refusniks into taking the shot, according to a report.

The London Metro reports that Vaccines Minister Nadhim Zahawi told MPs he wanted to identify ‘at an individual level’ those who have been offered the vaccine but turned it down.

The report states that the plan is being hatched amid fears that a sizeable amount of the population are ‘sceptical’ of the vaccine.

Space: Di Stefano: Italy at Forefront in Aerospace Sector

At Czech-Italian Aerospace Business Forum, 45 B2B meetings

(ANSA) — TRIESTE, 03 FEB — Italy is “at the cutting-edge” of the aerospace sector, a sector that can be “one of the divers of economic development,” said the outgoing Undersecretary for Foreign Affairs, Manlio Di Stefano, participating today in the ‘Czech Italian Aerospace Business Forum,’ an online event organized by the Embassy of Italy in Prague and by the Transport Ministry of the Czech Republic. During the meeting, Di Stefano underlined the strength of the Italian production sector and its leading “experiences” in aerospace technologies, with genuine prospects in the fields of satellite navigation, agriculture, geo-observation, and environmental protection.

Di Stefano emphasized this strength, which is also based on the Italian model of ‘aerospace clusters,’ such as the Lombard and Apulian ones, was in the spotlight at the business forum.

Space is “one of the biggest drivers of innovation,” said Czech Deputy Minister of Transport Jan Sechter. The forum agenda also includes speeches by leading experts, including Giorgio Saccoccia, president of the Italian Space Agency, and more than 45 B2B virtual meetings between companies in the sector. There “large participation of companies” confirms the sectors’, Saccoccia underlined.

Spain’s Far Right Gains Ground Ahead of Catalan Regional Election

The upcoming election in Catalonia on February 14 is poised to change the political landscape of the northeastern region. At the last regional poll in 2017, the center-right party Ciudadanos received the highest number of votes, but did not win enough seats to form a government. Two pro-Catalan independence parties, Junts per Catalunya (Together for Catalonia) and the Catalan Republican Left (ERC), with the support of the anti-capitalist party CUP, instead joined forces to take office.

But four years on, the situation has changed dramatically. The most striking difference is that this year the far-right party Vox is set to enter the Catalan parliament for the first time.

Spain: Police Station Attacked With Molotov Cocktails

A Police Station in Barcelona has been attacked with Molotov cocktails.

On Saturday night the municipal police station of Matadepera in Spain’s Barcelona was attacked by two men who cannot yet be identified. They threw two Molotov cocktails at the police station.

The incidence was recorded on CCTV, and shows two people approach the rear the police station before launching two Molotov cocktails. The attack was at around 4:30 am in the morning, and the incendiary devices were shown on the CCTV to hit one of the police station’s windows.

The attack is being taken seriously by the Mossos d’Esquadra, and an investigation is being carried out which has been taken over by the General Information Commission. So far no motives have been ruled out.

According to La Vanguardia, it is possible that the attack on the police station could be in retaliation of the Matadepera police enforcing coronavirus restrictions. Recent weeks have seen restrictions in many places across Spain increased, which has led some people to have illegal parties.

Sweden: Romanian Beggar Prosecuted for Attacking 83-Year-Old Woman at ATM

After an 83-year-old woman with a walker withdrew money from an ATM at Olof Palme’s place in Malmö three days before Christmas Eve, she was pushed to the ground and robbed. A 45-year-old Romanian beggar is now prosecuted for aggravated theft and assault at Malmö District Court. The attacker confessed to the crime during police interrogation, Nyheter Idag reported.

A surveillance camera at the ATM captured the man in a group with other men becoming interested in the actions of a woman who withdrew 500 Swedish Krona (€49.48) banknotes and put them in her pocket. The woman then withdrew 100 Swedish Krona (€9.89) banknote, which the robber managed to get after pushing the resisting woman.

However, the 83-year-old woman paid a much higher price as she received a wound in the head and suffered heavy bleeding. When she was admitted to the hospital, complications arose, and she had to stay for at least four weeks. Through her legal representative, she stated that she wants to participate in the trial’s main hearing.

UK Govt Source: Bosses Could Sack Workers for Not Getting Vaccinated

British government sources believe bosses will be able to use Health and Safety regulations to sack workers who do not get vaccinated.

Nadhim Zahawi, the government minister for vaccines, suggested back in December that “restaurants, bars, and cinemas, and other venues” could end up demanding some sort vaccine passport or other documentation before providing services, and anti-Brexit magnate Charlie Mullins has recently said he would introduce a “no vaccine, no job” policy, terminating workers who do not get vaccinated.

Vaccine Minister: Britons May Need THIRD Shot This Year, Annual Vaccination

Britain’s Vaccine Minister Nadhim Zahawi has said that Britons may need to have a third coronavirus shot in the space of one year to protect against new strains of the Chinese coronavirus, adding that people may need annual boosters.

So far all of the available vaccines licenced for use in Britain require an initial injection and then another some weeks later, with the first rollout of jabs having started in December. Mr Zahawi said that he and England’s Deputy Chief Medical Officer, Professor Jonathan Van-Tam, believe that there will “probably” be another vaccination in the autumn, and then an annual shot, akin to the seasonal flu vaccine programme.

114,000 Needless Military Suicide Deaths Via Iraq and Afghanistan Wars

But then, 9/11/01 hit us. Bush sent American troops over to Afghanistan to find bin Laden, and shortly thereafter, he sent more troops over to Iraq with his lie of “weapons of mass destruction.” Since that fateful decision, 114,000 American kids in uniform or veterans have committed suicide from their military experience. Another 7,100 died from combat. (Source: www.stopsoldiersuicide.org)

The Iraq Health Survey shows that 1.033 million Iraqis have suffered death from the 20-year conflict instigated by G.W. Bush and Congress. That includes soldiers and civilians.

Additionally, 20 percent of military service members who have returned from Iraq and Afghanistan — 300,000 in all — report symptoms of post-traumatic stress disorder or major depression, yet only slightly more than half have sought treatment, according to a new RAND Corporation study.

According to www.stopsoldiersuicide.org, an average of 22 U.S. soldiers kill themselves daily. That count has reached as many 40 suicides in one 24-hour period.

PM Modi Speaks Up on Global Propaganda Against India, Refers to Greta Thunberg Toolkit in Assam

Prime Minister Modi while inaugurating development programmes in Assam, launched a scathing attack on the global conspiracy to defame India.

PM Modi said that people who are conspiring to defame India have stooped so low that they are not sparing even Indian tea. Assam produces more than half of India’s tea. PM Modi, while addressing the gathering, said that they must have heard in news that these conspirators are vowing to malign the image of Indian tea in a systematic manner across the world. “Will you accept this attack? You will accept the people involved in this attack? Will you accept those praising these attackers?,” PM Modi said.

Without naming it explicitly, PM Modi talked about the toolkit leaked by professional child-protestor Greta Thunberg on February 3, 2021 which exposed several organizations, celebrities, and leaders for conspiring against India. One of the documents shared was prepared by Poetic Justice Foundation which had a dedicated plan going back as far as 3rd January 2021.

South Africa Halts Vaccine Rollout as Astrazeneca Jab Ineffective at Combating Mutant COVID

As we previewed over the weekend, a new study suggests that AstraZeneca’s COVID vaccine, developed in partnership with Oxford, is significantly less effective at preventing patients from being infected by a new “variant” — aka mutant — strain first isolated in South Africa. We posited that the new data could be used by European regulators, as well as regulators from elsewhere, to justify another round of lockdowns and other restrictions even as cases and infections continue to decline worldwide.

Belgium: Migrants Again Occupy Catholic Church in Brussels

Migrant squatters have once occupied the St. John the Baptist Church in downtown Brussels as they have many times in the past, demanding direct negotiations with the Belgian federal government, Hungarian newspaper Magyar Nemzet correspondent Tamara Judi reports.

The church, just meters from Sainte-Catherine Square in Brussels, has been the location of amazing scenes for days. The Catholic church, erected in the 17th century, was occupied by nearly 150 immigrants staying in Belgium illegally who wanted to negotiate directly with the federal Belgian government in order to stay in Europe.

While visiting the site, Magyar Nemzet spoke to one of the security guards currently guarding the church, who said that the migrants had no intention to leave, and as they were in “God’s house”, they occupied the church in the belief that they were untouchable by the police.

Tensions Grow Between Migrants and Locals on Spain’s Canary Islands

The Canary Islands, specifically the island of Gran Canaria, have been on the brink of an outbreak of violence between locals and migrants. Since last autumn, thousands of refugees have been arriving on the island where they have been ever since due to the coronavirus pandemic. This, coupled with the European Union’s inability to solve the wider problem of migration, is leading to a major crisis, according to Focus weekly.

As the number of migrants increases, fierce and bloody skirmishes between locals and asylum seekers are occurring daily. The prosecutor’s office also is investigating a case in which locals on WhatsApp organized attacks against migrants, according to Novinky.cz.

Major Creators Aim to Deplatform and Destroy Income of YouTuber Over Medical Disorder Concerns

Cancel culture has taken an even nastier turn than usual, calling for Big Tech to ban a YouTuber for a medical disorder.

Multiple content creators on YouTube have signed a petition calling for the de-platforming of Eugenia Cooney, a popular YouTuber who appears to have an eating disorder. But, as in most cases, de-platforming her would amount to discrimination and, according to experts, it will not help as depriving her of her livelihood would likely make things worse.

Cooney, 26, has been uploading content on her channel since 2011. Over that period, she has amassed a huge following; her channel has more than 2 million subscribers.

However, she is often criticized about her appearance, with critics alleging she has an eating disorder. She confirmed it in 2019 when she took a five-month break to seek treatment. Somehow, critics believe that deplatforming here, depriving her of her income and creative outlet would somehow help.

North Dakota Bill Would Legally Define Abortion as First-Degree Murder

A bill introduced to the North Dakota state legislature would, if passed, define abortion as a form of first-degree murder, the legal equivalent of murdering an infant child.

House Bill 1313, introduced by Representative Jeff Hoverson, declares “a person guilty of murder of an unborn child” if they intentionally cause the death of that human being. If someone knowingly performs an abortion that is not intended to save the mother’s life, it would be classified a Class AA felony.

    The inscription “To The German People” on the Reichstag has a history worth knowing. Conceived by Huguenot Paul Wallot, commissioned by Jewish civil servant Theodor Lewald, produced (from melted down cannon tubes) by Jewish bronze foundry Samuel Abraham Loevy.

    But that’s not where the story ends. A Muslim named Tareq Alaows (who was privileged enough to study law under Assad’s regime) registered as a “refugee” in Germany in 2015. He wants to enter the Bundestag this year for the Green neo-communists to become “spokesman for all refugees.”

    Although FRG “citizenship” is only granted after at least 8 years, U-Boot Alaows now got it early after 6 years due to “outstanding merits.” He has founded a smuggling organization that brings even more Muslims to Europe.

    Now he has announced that his first official act in Berlin would be to replace the words “To the German people” with “To all who live in Germany”. As a member of the Bundestag, he gets €10,000 a month and a pension for life.

    • I had not heard of this disturbing story until you called it to attention and I live here so thanks for that but it also deviates.

      ‘He had therefore applied for German nationality. Of course, this is very important for my election campaign. I must be a German citizen by the day of the election at the latest.’

      ‘Note: In an earlier version, it was said that Tareq Alaows wanted to change the inscription on the Bundestag. To WORLD, a spokeswoman said that the interview statement of Alaows ‘It should no longer be called ‘The German People’ there [in the Bundestag] – but ‘For all people who live in Germany’ does not refer to the inscription.’

      Most here are too dumb and cowed to vote properly anyways but there are migrants from 1970 who dont have citizenship, maybe hes just a very skilled infiltrator rather than ignorant jihadi.

      Tareq can dream on though, proof of citizenship is a requirement to vote. Does he want to change this law? I don’t think he could. I hate Greens and I hate this constant tolerance weirdness.
