Hungarian Economy Outperforms Most European Peers During Pandemic

Although the Hungarian economy suffered an over 5 percent setback in 2020 due to the cumulative effects of the coronavirus pandemic, it still fared better than most other EU member states, whose average GDP shortfall was 6.4 percent, financial journalist Csaba Szajlai writes in daily Magyar Nemzet.

Amazon Redesigns Logo to Look Less Like Hitler After Complaints

Amazon was forced to redesign a new logo for its app after Twitter users claimed that the image resembled Adolf Hitler.

Yes, really.

The newly re-worked app logo, which was released in January, featured a cardboard box design with a strip of blue tape on it.

After the launch, Twitter users complained that the image reminded them of the toothbrush mustache worn by the Nazi dictator.

Amazon, Allah is Dead, And Easy Meat

by Rebecca Bynum

It has been argued, and I agree, that we are living during a period of cultural revolution; a time when the insidious political-correctness movement has finally morphed into outright book banning on the part of what has become the largest book retailer on the planet, Amazon.

Shortly after 9/11, I searched Amazon for books to explain the motivation of the attack. I found Robert Spencer’s Onward Muslim Soldiers, Ibn Warraq’s Why I am Not a Muslim, and Bat Ye’or’s Islam and Dhimmitude. Soon thereafter, I located Jihad Watch and began working for Robert Spencer to support his efforts to elucidate what seemed to be Islamic insanity rampaging all over the world.

Now I know it is not insanity, but the result of human beings believing in a false and evil religion which caused them to place obedience to the dead doctrine of Islam over their belief in, and experience of, Truth, Beauty and Goodness — the true spiritual values which guide, or should guide, human destiny.

My 2011 book, Allah is Dead: Why Islam is Not a Religion, was my first attempt to analyze religion and to explain why Islam is in error. Ironically, it was Amazon which allowed me to launch an independent publishing company, New English Review Press. Because of the strong sales of Allah is Dead, we were able to go on to publish over three dozen more books on many topics — political, cultural and literary.

On February 9, almost ten years to the day after Allah was first published, I received a notice that this book had been removed from sale on Amazon, then a week later, I received notice that the meticulously researched 2016 book, Easy Meat: Inside Britain’s Grooming Gang Scandal by Peter McLoughlin, had likewise been removed — book, e-book, audiobook — everything, just gone.

Are We All Controlled Opposition Now?

by Diana West

On the matter of whether President Trump’s speech at CPAC uplifted or depressed:

I could not have been more depressed while listening to Part 1. It was a stump speech without a stump. Every reference to the terrible things “the Biden administration” is doing to our country without first and foremost establishing the regime’s illegitimacy has the effect of normalizing that regime. It wasn’t enough for Trump to flick at maybe having to win the presidency for a “third” time, either. I felt as though we were watching the debut of Trump’s capitulation to the Narrative. C-PAC, after all, has a long tradition of enforcing capitulations when it comes to the existential threats of the moment, including immigration, Islam, subversion. I had to turn off the President altogether during what turned out to be his lengthy paeon to “the vaccine.” Is it be possible he is unaware of the peril involved in injecting untested and unneccessary gene therapies into human beings? The role the vaccine(s) plays in the Great Reset agenda to turn humanity into digital slaves? These remain open questions.

When I dared to turn the sound back on, Trump was into Part 2: the stolen election. No longer was he blinding us to the nightmare that paralyzes the nation by pretending Biden won office freely and fairly. This I found uplifting the way truth is uplifting. Trump ran through some of the stunning election anomalies and fraud events, he excoriated SCOTUS and the courts for their cowardice (I prefer “treachery”) in refusing to hear the cases presenting evidence of same, and tossed out other choice items in the red meat category, including shout-outs to warmonger Liz Cheney and other GOP monsters. I, for one, gobbled it all up hungrily, and listened as he laid out a series of essential steps Republicans “must” take to restore free and fair elections in the USA, and “Save America,” his new mission. He looked tanned, rested and ready, and that was uplifting, too.

But ready for what? Was it really red meat or junk food? That is, came the dawn, no bounce. Without having Trump before me, without seeing him under the lights, on stage, where I could marvel at his undimmed confidence and charisma, the glow was gone and the message was cold. He went back to being President-in-exile and we were still captives of the circus ring that American political arena has become…

CNN Criticized for Chris Cuomo Double Standard

At the top of his Monday evening broadcast, CNN anchor Chris Cuomo spoke briefly about the scandals enveloping his brother, New York Governor Andrew Cuomo, explaining that he won’t be talking about them personally.

Chris Cuomo’s suggestion that he “cannot cover” the issues involving his brother raised several eyebrows given the fact that he has covered him with sympathetic interviews throughout the COVID-19 pandemic.

Many commentators across the political spectrum agreed that the double standard was not a good look for CNN or the integrity of media in general.

College’s Lockdown-Violation Snitching App That Uses Public Relief Funds Faces Scrutiny

The pandemic and subsequent lockdowns have brought out the snitch in many citizens. But legal experts warn that a COVID “violation” reporting app being used at University of North Carolina (UNC) and the surrounding community violates privacy, could result in discrimination, and could be used to target specific students for disciplinary action.

Both the University and the app’s creator dismissed the privacy and discrimination concerns.

DeSantis at CPAC: ‘Florida Got it Right and the Locked-Down States Got it Wrong’

On Friday, Republican Gov. of Florida Ron DeSantis addressed the audience at the 2021 Conservative Political Action Conference and asserted that Florida “got it right” on COVID-19 handling, whereas “the locked down states got it wrong.”

“Now we are stronger as a state and much happier as a people because of this leadership. Florida has lower per capita COVID mortality than the national average and lower than 27 other states,” [Despite being much older.] DeSantis said. “Our unemployment rate is lower than the national average, even though tourism isn’t fully back. And our budget is in great shape — we have not touched one red cent from our rainy day fund throughout this whole time. Florida got it right, and the locked-down states got it wrong.”

Federal Law Prohibits Employers and Others From Requiring Vaccination With a COVID-19 Vaccine Distributed Under an EUA

When the FDA grants emergency use authorization for a vaccine, many questions about the product cannot be answered. Given the open questions, when Congress granted the authority to issue EUAs, it chose to require that every individual should be allowed to decide for himself or herself whether or not to receive an EUA product. The FDA and CDC apparently consider this fundamental requirement of choice important enough that even during the height of the Covid-19 pandemic they reinforced that policy decision when issuing their guidance related to the Covid-19 vaccines.

This means that an organization will likely be at odds with federal law if it requires its employees, students or other members to get a Covid-19 vaccine that is being distributed under emergency use authorization.

State law often prohibits retaliating against an employee for refusing to participate in a violation of federal law. Organizations that require Covid-19 vaccination in violation of federal law may face lawsuits under these state laws not only to block the policy but also for damages and attorneys’ fees. Such potentially costly lawsuits can be avoided by refraining from adopting policies that require vaccination or penalize members for choosing not to be vaccinated.

Harvard/Harris Poll: Americans More Concerned Over Summer Violence Than January 6 Riot

A new Harvard/Harris poll has found that Americans are more concerned over the violence that happened last summer in the aftermath of the death of George Floyd than the Capitol riot on January 6.

Although the media has consistently tried to fan the flames of hysteria over the Capitol breach, which led to the deaths of four Trump supporters and one police officer, the survey reveals that Americans are more unsettled over the months-long riots across major cities that were responsible for at least 19 deaths.

Asked, “Which do you find more concerning — the violence in American cities during the summer or the riots at the Capitol on January 6th?” 55 per cent of respondents said they were more perturbed by violence in the cities compared to 45 per cent who said the January 6 riot.

At the CPAC conference of conservative activists, quite a few stars of the GOP have come out to shine. Compared to the Democrats, conservatives have a surfeit.

One stood out yesterday, Gov. Kristi Noem of South Dakota, under whose leadership, her state came out among the best on the COVID response.

Looking like a million bucks, she spoke of freedom, constitutionality, liberty, state’s rights, fiscal discipline, and cited the facts and figures of her gubernatorial record:

But perhaps the second-best part was when she compared her record to that of the Democrats’ fallen Lucifer, New York’s Gov Andrew Cuomo, who seeded nursing homes with COVID patients and ended up with the world’s second-highest death rate, a failure all around who was praised in the press and is now going down.

Los Angeles School District Partners With Microsoft to Introduce COVID-19 “Daily Pass” App for Kids

The Los Angeles Unified School District has partnered with tech giant Microsoft to introduce a COVID-19 “Daily Pass” app which requires students as young as 13 to complete daily in-app health checks in order to gain access to the school.

Students that pass the health checks will be given a scannable QR code “entrance ticket” which gives them access to the school for the day as long as they have a negative test result for COVID-19, show no symptoms, and have a temperature of under 100 degrees. Even after obtaining this entrance ticket and being granted access to the school, students will still be required to wear masks and social distance.

In addition to requiring students to complete daily health checks, the Daily Pass will also encourage students to schedule weekly COVID-19 tests, get a vaccine when it’s available, and store any external test results in the app.

Joe Biden has scrapped an Executive Order by President Trump that required new Federal buildings to be built only in beautiful classical styles.

Trump’s order from December mandated that buildings be designed in only classical, Neoclassical, Art Deco, Georgian, Greek Revival, and Beaux-Arts styles.

The order was an attempt to stop the trend of government buildings being soulless brutalist concrete boxes (see above), rather than constructions reminiscent of the buildings of ancient Athens and Rome.

New York Legislators Move to Strip Andrew Cuomo of Emergency Powers Amid Sexual Harassment Scandal

Legislators in the New York State Assembly and Senate have agreed to remove the emergency authority given to Gov. Andrew Cuomo during the pandemic, which gave him unilateral power over the state.

The removal of Cuomo’s emergency powers comes in the wake of a sexual harassment scandal in which three women have come forward to accuse the governor of unwanted sexual advances.

The deal between the State Assembly and the Senate will effectively reverse Cuomo’s emergency powers that were granted to him exactly one year ago in the early days of the pandemic, which gave him the ability to enact quarantines and quarter the state into various zones without the approval of legislators.

Rabid Marxists Dominate America’s Judiciary

Communists and socialists are evil proponents of big government who would willingly sacrifice human liberty and freedom to advance their concept of “social justice.” From the beginning of time, this evil has paved the way and devolved into what we’re seeing today. The hatred of God and the elevation of man is the very core of communism.

Rep. Greg Steube (R-FL) expressed these sentiments perfectly when he accused Democrats of trying to define what it means to be male or female. “The gender confusion that exists in our culture today is a clear rejection of God’s good design. Whenever a nation’s laws no longer reflect the standards of God that nation is in rebellion against him and will inevitably bear the consequences,” the congressman said. “We are seeing the consequences of rejecting God here in our country today.”

That comment drew a fiery response from Rep. Jerry Nadler (D-NY). “What any religious tradition describes as God’s will is no concern of this Congress,” added Jerry Nadler (D-NY).

There you have it; God’s will and the Holy Scriptures are no concern of America’s Congress. For nearly a century, the country has been turned over to godless men and women who care nothing for the rule of law. Yes, a century and longer.

The Coming ‘Great Reset’

Well its been just over a month now, and Joe Biden has been very busy writing his name. Maybe in a few weeks he’ll be ready to move on to learning shapes and colors. So far, he’s signed more than forty Executive Orders — more (by FAR) than any president in history. But that was just his first two weeks. It seems he’s gotten quite adept at signing his name, circumventing Congress by issuing presidential edicts.

On his first day, he signed an order establishing the position of a “COVID 19 Response Coordinator.” He signed an order for the US to rejoin the World Health Organization, which we now know has been complicit in using their own invented virus to lock down the entire world. Then there was the order providing federal agencies more flexibility in implementing federal requirements to combat COVID 19.

He also signed an order to rejoin the US to the Paris Climate Agreement. This will most certainly stifle US industries and put more federal restrictions on all citizens, under the guise of working to stop “climate change.” He also stopped oil and gas drilling in the US and halted the Keystone Pipeline project, putting thousands out of work with a stroke of his pen.

Also on his first day, he reinstated federal funding for so-called “sanctuary cities” for illegal immigrants. Foreign nationals from seven Islamic terrorist nations may now, once again, enter the country freely; no questions asked. By the way, he also brought the construction of our southern border wall to a screeching halt. On his FIRST day

  • Edmunds was a co-author of one of the primary modelling papers that have been used to convince the masses that vigilance against new variant B.1.1.7 should be their top priority
  • GSK is collaborating with mRNA-vaccine company CureVac to spend 150 million euros — approximately $180 million — to make vaccines for the new variants; this effectively gives them first-entrant advantage in vaccines for the new variants
  • The intricate web of money and influence surrounding Edmunds and other modelling-paper mafiosi, and their effect on the public good, are explored

Twitter Locks Out Dr. Naomi Wolf After She Questioned Coronavirus Narratives and Lockdowns

Dr. Naomi Wolf, DailyClout CEO and a prominent and long-time Democrat supporter and adviser, has experienced online censorship because her stance on Covid lockdowns and more does not toe the official line relentlessly enforced by Big Tech.

For decades, Wolf, a feminist and former President Clinton staffer and Al Gore adviser, was “allowed” to speak her mind unhindered by censors, but when she started to question the way the Covid pandemic has been handled, one after another social media networks started temporarily restricting her accounts and removing her content, including when reposted by other accounts.

Video: Candace Owens Slams Dems’ “Unbelievably Offensive” Equality Act

Appearing on Tucker Carlson Tonight, author and commentator Candace Owens tore into the Democrats’ ‘Equality Act’, calling it “unbelievably offensive” and “a terrifying agenda that eliminates women.”

The bill, which passed the House last week outlines a framework for dismissing biological differences between men and women.

“I find this to be unbelievably offensive: the idea there is nothing different between men and women,” Owens urged, adding that Democrats “don’t know what equality is. They don’t know what equality means.”

Why COVID Vaccine Testing is a Farce

Story at-a-glance:

  • Vaccine makers rarely use inert placebos (such as a saline shot), which is the gold standard for drug trials. Instead, they typically assess the safety of a new vaccine against another vaccine. This hides side effects, as most vaccines have side effects and risks
  • The Oxford/AstraZeneca COVID-19 vaccine is being tested against a meningitis vaccine, which shares many of the side effects reported from COVID-19 vaccines
  • Pfizer and Moderna have started offering placebo recipients in their trials the real mRNA gene therapy, which means it will be even more difficult to tease out which side effects are actually caused by the shot and which ones aren’t, over the long term
  • In one clinical trial for the Moderna vaccine in Lenexa, Kansas, virtually all of the 650 volunteers who initially received the placebo have opted to get the real vaccine, which means there’s essentially no comparison group left for the ongoing study, which was slated to run for two years
  • Some argue that placebo arms aren’t needed in COVID-19 vaccine trials, but their argument hinges on the idea that the vaccine being tested is known to be safe, which it absolutely is not at this point, and won’t be for many years

Why the Communists Are Winning

Vietnam was abandoned to the communists when Democrats in Congress, organized in a group that later became known as the Progressive Caucus, objected to further aid to anti-communist South Vietnam.

General George S. Patton had warned the U.S. that Russian communism was as big a threat as Nazism. But the American government didn’t want to hear that. And that made Patton a target. The book, Target Patton, by Robert Wilcox, argues that Patton was assassinated. Later, President Kennedy was assassinated by a Marxist, Lee Harvey Oswald, and Robert F. Kennedy suffered the same fate. His assassin was a Palestinian Marxist.

Robert Orlando’s film, “Silence Patton,” says, “Patton’s legacy confronts us with one haunting question about World War II: why did the allies spend years spilling the blood of thousands of men to oust a dictator in Germany and recapture the land from the German Reich only to surrender those liberated lands to a Russian tyrant in a matter of months?”

The Greatest Generation, in other words, gave their lives to make the world safe for communism. It’s a terrible tragedy. The major change in communist strategy has been the replacement of China over Russia as the leader of the world communist movement. The Sino-Soviet split was a ruse, a dialectical maneuver, that was gladly accepted by traitors in government and the corporate sector.

As this began to unfold, Senator Joe McCarthy was trying to understand the nature of communist infiltration. The Communists demonized him, coining the term “McCarthyism.” On the eve of investigating communist infiltration of the CIA, as documented by J.C. Hawkins in the book Betrayal at Bethesda, McCarthy went in Bethesda Naval Hospital for a knee problem and came out in a body bag, dead from hepatitis.

Police Crash Three Illegal Parties in Cantley

OTTAWA — Police in west Quebec broke up three illegal gatherings at short-term rentals over the weekend, issuing nearly two-dozen tickets.

In one of the cases, the property had been rented under the false pretense that it was going to be occupied by a family of five, MRC des Collines police said.

On Sunday, police visited that home on d’Oslo Road in Cantley and found 11 people there, only two of whom shared the same address. All 11 people were fined $1,550 each. Their ages ranged from 19 to 28 years old, police said.

On Saturday, police visited an apartment building on Bouvrette Road and found two gatherings in separate units, one with four people and another with six people. They were also all fined.

A 32-year-old man at that site was also in breach of his probation.

Under COVID-19 restrictions in the Outaouais, visitors from other addresses are prohibited with some exceptions, including for people who live alone and those requiring care.

Victim of Alleged Sexual Assault Details Nightmare Experience at COVID Jail

In just over a month, the Trudeau government’s decision to force travellers arriving to Canada by air to be detained in a federally funded quarantine hotel (and pay a ridiculous amount to do so) has gone from concerning to frightening.

Not only are these laws infringing on Canadians’ mobility rights, which dictate that “every citizen of Canada has the right to enter, remain in and leave Canada,” people being detained in this fashion are starting to report that necessities like food, medical attention and personal safety are no guarantee during one’s confinement.

“Startling reports of multiple sexual assault allegations within Justin Trudeau’s travel quarantine system” have now surfaced, with one woman alleging that she was sexually assaulted inside one of these quarantine hotels.

In today’s report, you will hear from one of those women, who we will refer to as Sarah, who says that after being detained against her will in one of Trudeau’s COVID jails, she was left powerless and ended up being sexually assaulted by another detainee. An Ontario man named Robert Shakory has since been charged in the alleged assault.

The refrain of the song “El Diablo” (The Devil) written by Thoms Stengaard, Jimmy Thornfeldt, Laurell Baker, and Oxa and performed by Elena Tsagrinou, is as follows:

“I fell in love I fell in love I gave my heart to El Diablo, El Diablo

Oh, El Diablo, El Diablo

First Doses of Russia’s Sputnik Vaccine Arrive in Slovakia

Slovakia has received 2 million doses of the Russian Sputnik V vaccine against COVID-19, which would be enough for a complete vaccination for less than a fifth of the country’s population. The vaccines were delivered by a Slovak army plane to Kosice on Monday.

The vaccine will be used based on an exemption granted by the Minister of Health Marek Krajci, making Slovakia the second EU country after Hungary to approve the use of the vaccine. According toKrajci, this step will make it possible to speed up vaccination by 40 percent, which has been hampered by a lack of vaccines.

The Russian direct investment fund, which participates in the production of Sputnik V, has meanwhile issued a statement saying that Slovakia has become the second country of the European Union after Hungary and the 39th country in the world to give consent to the use of its vaccine.

The anti-coronavirus shot, developed jointly by the British-Swedish firm AstraZeneca and Oxford University, showed inconclusive results in trials, with its efficacy ranging between 62% and 90%, depending on the dosage and the timeframe between the two shots required for immunisation.

Despite recent success in securing several million doses of coronavirus vaccines, some European countries are still struggling to vaccinate people with them. But the problem is not the logistics or the lack of jabs — many people in France and Germany are simply reluctant to get a specific shot — the one developed by AstraZeneca, the AFP points out, citing statistics.

ICANN Has a Monopoly on Domain Names and is Unaccountable

But at the end of February, Peter Sunde Kolmisoppi, co-founder of The Pirate Bay, now an entrepreneur and politician in Sweden, posted a series of tweets detailing how ICANN, a US based non-profit that controls some of the key internet infrastructure operates, concluding that it, too, exhibits monopolistic behaviors characteristic of a centralized internet.

Sunde discovered this during his lengthy application process, started in 2019, to become a registrar, that’s possible only with accreditation by ICANN that controls the internet’s root (DNS) servers, and therefore represents its central backbone, he writes.

Italy: Did Salvini Betray His Electorate by Joining the Draghi Government?

Why on earth did Matteo Salvini decide to join the Draghi government when all opinion polls show the right-wing bloc winning in the event of an election?

The first reason, the one given by people from the League, is that to have new parliamentary elections, President Sergio Mattarella would need to call them. Mattarella is from the left — he comes from the Democratic Party (PD) — and the last thing he wants to see in Italy is an absolute majority of the three right-wing parties with Salvini as prime minister.

New elections were Salvini’s preferred solution, but his ally Silvio Berlusconi, leader of the center-right pro-EU party Forza Italia, loudly proclaimed his willingness to participate in the government whose formation Mattarella had entrusted to “Super Mario”. Besides, together with the Italia Viva party of former prime minister Matteo Renzi, who brought down the second Conte government but supported the formation of a Draghi government, the left alone still had an absolute majority in the Italian parliament.

Poland Must Abandon Green Energy or End Up Like Texas, Says Polish Writer Living in the US

The dangers of adapting to green energy in Poland have been revealed by the recent tragedy in Texas, warned influential conservative writer Wojciech Cejrowski during an interview with Polish media outlet Do Rzeczy.

“Texas led to the situation in which people were dying due to green energy. They were freezing in their homes because the green wind turbines were freezing. Everything in American houses, including heaters, requires electricity,” Cejrowski, who lives in the United States, explained.

The writer underlined that electricity cannot be dependent on climate and pointed out that Texas made a mistake by basing its electricity supply on green energy over political reasons.

He warned that producing 25 percent of Texas’s energy on wind turbines was politically correct but incredibly dangerous.

Hungary has every right to procure coronavirus vaccines from other sources than those approved by the European Union, Minister of Freign Affairs and Trade Péter Szijjartó said on Monday in Slovenia at a meeting with his counterparts from the other four states of the Vienna Five Group (Austria, Czechia, Slovakia and Slovenia).

“We will not allow either Brussels or the Hungarian left to discuss with Hungarian experts the ability and the right to decide what vaccine can be used in an emergency in Hungary,” Szijjartó said. “The question has arisen as to who can decide whether a vaccine is safe or not. There are clear European rules for this. This may be decided by the European Medicines Agency or, in the event of an emergency, by the national authorities. The latter is undisputedly a European solution.”

The Left Has Begun the Great Game for the Souls of Young Poles

Young leftists have begun their offensive in Poland, warns Wojciech Wybranowski in his commentary for Remix News

The Left in Poland is at times hilariously and even primitively infantile. Once, Left MP Anna Maria-Zukowska publicly complained that the dog of the daughter of communist general Wojciech Jaruzelski peed in her shoe. Another left activist proclaimed that the time for rebellion had come and glued herself to the doors to parliament.

The issue is that the Polish Right, by seeing the young Left through the prism of groups like Antifa or other such infantile acts, is making a terrible mistake that may lead to it losing power in the near future.

In 2015, the supporters of the Right in Poland were able to strip power away from the destructive and inept reign of the liberal-left PO-PSL government. This was accomplished mainly with the help of the votes of young people. Today, close to six years after those elections and after the United Right’s second victory, we can state that there is a problem.

UK: MHRA Data Shows 11 Women Have Lost Their Baby After Being Vaccinated… So Far

We’re sorry to have to report that as a result of receiving a dose of either the Pfizer vaccine or Oxford vaccine a total of eleven women have so far suffered the grief of losing their unborn children in the process. But the question everyone should be asking is why?

Why is it that pregnant women are getting one of the Covid “vaccines” when it even goes against the UK Government’s own advise to do so?

Here’s the Government’s advice on the Oxford / Astrazeneca jab —

‘The vaccine should only be considered for use in pregnancy when the potential benefits outweigh any potential risks for the mother and baby. Women should discuss the benefits and risks of having the vaccine with their healthcare professional and reach a joint decision based on individual circumstances.’

The reason for this line is that the Oxford jab has done absolutely no research into whether their experimental vaccine is safe for use in pregnant women.

Biden Sanctions Russia Over 2020 Assassination Attempt of Putin Critic Alexei Navalny

The White House announced sanctions against Russia on Tuesday for the nerve agent poisoning of opposition leader Alexei Navalny in August 2020.

“The Kremlin’s use of chemical weapons to silence a political opponent and intimidate others demonstrates its flagrant disregard for international norms,” said Treasury Secretary Janet Yellen. “We join the EU in condemning Alexei Navalny’s poisoning as well as his arrest and imprisonment by the Russian government.”

Navalny became violently ill last summer after Kremlin agents allegedly broke into his hotel room and laced his underwear with the nerve agent Novichok. Traces of the nerve agent were found in his hotel room. The German medical team that treated him also found the lethal chemical weapon — which is illegal under international treaty — in his bloodstream.

Navalny was recently arrested upon his return to Russia.

India: Communists Join Forces With Muslim Leaders Against Hindus

Communist demigod Karl Marx famously said, “Religion is the sigh of the oppressed creature, the heart of a heartless world, and the soul of soulless conditions. It is the opium of the people.”

As the Indian state of West Bengal inches towards its legislative elections, the Communist Party of India (Marxist) has now joined forces with influential Islamist personality, Abbas Siddiqui. Siddiqui is a cleric from West Bengal’s Muslim dominated region Furfura Shariff; he was seen praying for the death of 500 million Indians due to the coronavirus.

In India, Communists have done everything in their power to eradicate the Hindu religion, while working hand in glove with the Islamists. The Islamists are drunk on their religious sermons and promises of an afterlife — paradise and the amenities it comes with. With their lack of consideration for science, their coalition with the Communists is quite confusing to the casual observer.

Mr Johnson, speaking during a visit to Stoke-on-Trent, said that UK officials were “working with the French auth orities and others to stop the trade”. The crackdown is being masterminded by Home Secretary Priti Patel.

  1. GERMANY: RAPIST GOES TO JAIL FOR 13.5 YEARS
    Judge: “You specifically hunted down young women”

    Men hunt people in packs at night in Berlin. Dragging young women into an SUV. Attack them one by one. Rape her for hours …

    Berlin – One of them was sentenced by the regional court on Monday: Wisam B. (33), formerly a police officer in Iraq. The sentence: 13 years, six months imprisonment for particularly serious rape, hostage-taking, deprivation of liberty, bodily harm.

    Not only Wisam (33) B. was charged, but also his brother Karrar (25), both born in Baghdad, Iraqi citizens. The older brother lives in Charlottenburg (Berlin), the younger in Spandau (Berlin).

    The cases according to the indictment;

    ► His first victim on March 27, 2018, his brother’s 14-year-old ex-girlfriend. Crime scene in his apartment. Four more followed …

    ► A young woman he met at a club drove him home out of sympathy. To be told about his difficult life in his homeland …

    ► The next time the accused was in the car with an accomplice. Two Australians thought it was an Uber taxi. After the woman’s boyfriend was shaken off, she too was raped – in the back seat.

    ► On January 18, 2020, at around 3:30 am, the three of them grabbed a high school graduate from behind when she came from the club “Mensch Meier” in Storkower Strasse (Berlin-Friedrichshain), dragged her into an SUV, choked her and raped her.
    First in the car. Later in the defendant’s home.

    The judge spoke of “four hours of hell”, “fear of death”. And severe psychological consequences. At 7:20 a.m., they are said to have thrown the injured young woman on the street in Berlin-Charlottenburg.

    The judge: “By January 18, 2020 at the latest, the hunt for young women was targeted.”

    ► February 23, 2020. Five weeks later, four brutal rapists were on the way. At the techno club “Berghain” they grabbed a 21-year-old, shoved 3 ecstasy tablets into her throat, and repeatedly fell upon her unprotected. Before they threw their victim with the most serious genital injuries out of the car, they deleted all location data on their mobile phone.

    The high school graduate was able to remember parts of the license plate and details of the apartment, the perpetrators left genetic fingerprints in the form of DNA. They have been behind bars since March 25, 2020.

    Deep contempt for women

    The judge: “The accused destroyed the lives of five young women.” His actions were marked by deep contempt for women. “And an expression of sadistic power.” He acted with a feeling of superiority, without a human impulse.

    He was silent in court, denied, lied … So that his victims were once again degraded. “Words are lacking in view of the insane suffering he has caused,” the judge continued.

    The court reserved the right to impose preventive detention. Until one knows more about the accused, who has so far refused to be an expert, through observations in jail. His brother, who was initially also accused, was acquitted.

    https://m.bild.de/regional/berlin/berlin-aktuell/13-5-jahre-knast-sie-haben-gezielt-jagd-nach-jungen-frauen-gemacht-75579826,view=amp.bildMobile.html

    An unusual case. These animals were accused (unusual), caught (unusual), charged (unusual), convicted (unusual) and jailed (unusual). They may still come free and will never be deported.

    These are the predators childless Angela Merkel and her communist EU has imported into Europa by the millions. If you raise your voice against these invaders you are a Nazi and will be prosecuted and persecuted. If you say nothing, you pay for your own replacement.

    Only 3% of children world-wide are white. The West will not recover from this development. This molecular warfare will end in full blown war across Europe. The outcome uncertain.

    And the communists EU regime under Angela Merkel is to blame fully.

  2. “Germany: ‘Let’s Build Robust Communities So We Don’t Need the Police, ‘ Urges Black Green Party Politician in Berlin”
    The communities people like him and his party destroyed all over the world?

  3. Stalin deleted people. So does Facebook. I won’t be disappointed if this translation is publishes as an article rather than a comment.

    GERMANY – The third wave of intimidation

    The “Freedom of Opinion on the Net” fund litigates against Facebook, Google / YouTube, Twitter, the Foreign Office, the Correctiv “fact checker” or the state media authorities in matters of freedom of expression.

    We win a lot of cases, although on the other side there are large international law firms with thousands of lawyers and the unlimited financial and personal possibilities of the IT giants Google (YouTube), Facebook (Instagram), Twitter etc. Now the state media authorities are joining in as a further powerful opponent. If we want to defend ourselves against this apparent superiority, we need your help . We therefore ask for financial support about twice a year and at the same time report on our successes .

    Please prepare yourself for further, long-planned and insidious attacks on freedom of expression the closer you get to the 2021 federal election. As if we weren’t exposed to enough encroachments on fundamental rights as a result of the Corona crisis, “are sharpening the social media” and the government parties are presenting a law that will leave you speechless. Now your license fees are used to finance state harassment against journalists and encroachments on fundamental rights – more on this below.

    1. What kind of self-image must prevail in the executive suite of an IT giant when a user is banned from a cartoon with Lucy from the Peanuts for 30 days, while the identical content is allowed to stay online at Dunja Hayali (ZDF)? Arbitrariness, arrogance, hubris. A Nuremberg entrepreneur who produces factories for solar systems was banned for 30 days for the same graphic.

    Your fine notice is none of your business!

    He finances his process himself. The same user was switched off from Facebook for a week in the news feed. But the company refuses to say why. You read that right. We sue for information. In the process, Facebook stands by its arbitrariness with great serenity and believes it is above the law. You can punish the user as you see fit, but refuse to give reasons. Punishment without action. Worse than with Kafka’s “The Trial”. That is the pure arrogance of power and pure arbitrariness in addition. Motto: Your notice of the fine where you allegedly parked incorrectly is none of your business. Only the courts can help here. And the public.

    2. On YouTube, the deletion of videos and channels is rampant when the central topic of our day, the Covid-19 crisis, is raised. The “ Guideline on Medical Misinformation about COVID-19 ” is cited as a justification . In short, it says there: We delete anything that violates the position of the World Health Authority. I beg your pardon?

    This categorical ban is a clear violation of academic freedom, freedom of expression and freedom of the press. But it gets worse.

    The WHO is an agency of the United Nations, the majority of which are not democracies. And the (scientific) positions of this authority should now be the yardstick for the scope of fundamental rights in a democratic constitutional state? If it were up to YouTube, this would mean nothing more and nothing less than that authoritarian regimes at least indirectly have an essential say in what can and cannot be said in Germany. Incidentally, the Chemnitz Regional Court thinks that’s completely okay.

    We carry out numerous processes here, and users often pay for them themselves. Boris Reitschuster, for example, is the victim of such a deletion in one of his videos. We obtained an injunction from the Berlin Regional Court that prohibited the deletion, YouTube has lodged an objection.

    Digital book burning as in “Fahrenheit 451″.
    3. Have you heard of ” Stalin’s retouching “? Stalin, Ulbricht and others simply made politically unpleasant people disappear everywhere, they were erased from memory, removed from photos and so on. Facebook is on the same path. All you have to do is mention certain names – regardless of the context – and the posting will be deleted.

    What do you say about this? A political dictator parody, recognizable even to someone with the IQ of a chicken, is quickly banned. Argument: “In order to prevent harm in the offline world, we do not allow any organization or person who advocates or practices violence to be present on Facebook .” Facebook means this seriously. Names and people should disappear. With every documentation, criticism, discussion, you risk your profile. Modern, digital book burning like in ” Fahrenheit 451 “.

    This is facebook. It’s no better with YouTube. A ZDF / ORF production disappears and the channel goes with it. Although Hitler is satirically destroyed in the highly acclaimed video with Helmut Qualtinger, which YouTube does not understand even after the explanation. The identical content remains online at Suhrkamp-Verlag, the publisher of the DVD, however. I’m looking forward to the trial before the Ellwangen Regional Court.

    It is threatened with costly administrative proceedings
    4. Finally, the sad climax. As if the arbitrary actions of the network giants and the unconstitutional network enforcement law were not enough, the federal and state governments have now stepped up. With Section 19 of the State Media Treaty . The federal and state governments have let loose on bloggers of all stripes. Under the guise of “journalistic due diligence”, they are supposed to “telemedia with journalistic and editorial offers”. And the wave of intimidation is already running. Currently, there are letters to bloggers in which one can read that one has come across “passages that may violate journalistic due diligence.” Possibly? And still an official letter (which I have at hand) threatening costly administrative proceedings?

    This is how free speech is intimidated. First you sort out pages that you think you can sell to the public as problematic. But who is stopping the institutions when they are done with these offerings? Thereafter, politicians have inconvenient portals with a readership in the millions on the hit list: Achgut.com or Tichy’s insight. The perfidious: The stations are financed by your voluntarily and gladly paid TV license fees. You pay for taking action against bloggers or providers of YouTube channels! With the license fee, the competition of the public law is taken into a pincer. Of course only if “possibly” the journalistic duty of care is violated. Have you ever been threatened with a fine for possibly parking incorrectly?

    A very recent example shows how important competition is with public broadcasters, even if mistakes are made here and there. On February 24th, 2021 Federal Health Minister Spahn came under massive criticism. “Jens Spahn had journalists researched,” reported by Tagesspiegel , Bild , Welt and many others. On the evening of February 24th, 2021, after all these reports were published, Spahn appeared in an interview with Marietta Slomka in “ heute-journal ”. Slomka did not say a word about Spahn’s spying on journalists. A total journalistic failure. The is a violation of the “journalistic duty of care”, but the state media authorities have others in their sights.

    We consider the State Media Treaty to be unconstitutional and want to have this clarified in court. If necessary before the Federal Constitutional Court. Please help us with it! A supporter recently wrote: “I am now setting up a standing order and support ‘freedom of expression on the web’ every month with one euro more than I have to pay the public service providers.”

    “Freedom of Opinion on the Net” thanks you warmly for your support, without which these successes would not have been possible!

    • Well, I’ll miss some aspects of the lockdown; you can usually get a (socially distanced) seat on the tubes and trains, and nearly always on the buses. That’s about all though.

  4. To some the impression is given of Euroeons just standing there on the beach looking gormless with their limp spears. Women and cash goodies with all needs up for grabs. If the Muslims can go this far imagine what the Chinese have in mind. We’ve been saying this can’t continue for a good few decades now.
