Gates of Vienna News Feed 5/11/2021

A gunman entered a school in the Russian city of Kazan, in Tatarstan, and began shooting, killing at least nine people and wounding dozens of others before he was subdued and detained. He is reportedly a 19-year-old former student of the school, who vowed on social media to kill a lot of people.

Meanwhile, the East Coast Pipeline shutdown has caused disruptions in the supply of gasoline in the eastern United States, prompting panic buying among the citizenry. Fortunately, my tank was full when the crisis began, so I’m OK for the time being.

In other news, police fined lockdown violators in Manitoba, Nova Scotia, England, and Thailand.

“His Womanizing Was Well Known”: Flood-’Gates’ Open as Biographer Details Microsoft Founder’s Salacious Past

Before Bill Gates was known as an elitist nerd masquerading as a leading vaccine expert, the Microsoft co-founder was a hard-partying womanizer who recruited local strippers to attend naked pool parties, and had major issues with infidelity even after marrying Melinda, according to a biography.

The Microsoft co-founder’s wild lifestyle was well known among his inner circle — but newspapers like the New York Times hid the unflattering reports to continue getting “spoon-fed stories,” James Wallace wrote in the 1997 biography, “Overdrive: Bill Gates and the Race to Control Cyberspace.”

They “didn’t report on the wild bachelor parties that Microsoft’s boyish chairman would throw in his Seattle home, for which Gates would visit one of Seattle’s all-nude nightclubs and hire dancers to come to his home and swim naked with his friends in his indoor pool,” Wallace wrote.

It was a continuation from his time at Harvard, where he “did like to frequent Boston’s notorious Combat Zone, with its porn shows, strip joints, and prostitutes,” Wallace wrote. —NY Post

Community Demands Answers After Another Violent Weekend in Minneapolis

MINNEAPOLIS — KG Wilson admits he’s worn down.

“I haven’t stopped crying since Day One of 2021,” the longtime Twin Cities peace activist said. “It has not stopped. It has not stopped. It has been continuous.”

Wilson said he’s devastated by the citywide increase in violence this year, including another homicide and half-dozen injuries from shootings this weekend that led to two arrests.

Minneapolis Police have investigated 26 homicides so far in 2021, double the amount at this time in 2020 (13 homicides) and almost quadruple the level of homicides at this time in 2019 (seven homicides).

Controversy Erupts as Senator Asks First Muslim Nominee for Federal Judgeship About Sharia

Joe Biden nominated the first Muslim-American in history as a candidate for federal district court judge. Zahid Quraishi was among a “diverse slate of 11 judicial nominees put forward by Biden.”

Last month, Quraishi went before the Senate Judiciary Committee as part of the selection process, and was asked by Committee Chair, Senator Dick Durbin, a Democrat: “What do you know about Sharia law?

Quraishi answered that he knows “nothing about Sharia.” Nothing? Virtually everyone knows something about the Sharia. In his position, Quraishi is likely to know a lot, and was probably fibbing, and not in an intelligent way, either. It isn’t possible that a man of his standing, who “has served as a military prosecutor and Army captain in Iraq, as an assistant U.S. Attorney who has tried cases of public corruption, organized crime and financial fraud, and as a white-collar criminal defense lawyer”, would know “NOTHING” about Sharia.

One thing for certain: Sharia is incompatible with American law, and in fact, incompatible with every free society. A statement to this effect from this potential federal judge should have been automatic and non-controversial.

The Biden White House’s new deputy director for political strategy and outreach encouraged people to “look up your nearest ICE office and shut-it-down” and said ICE “doesn’t have to exist” in 2018 tweets.

“If you’re looking for a way to help — look up your nearest ICE office and shut-it-down,” Natalie Montelongo wrote on Twitter on June 21, 2018, in response to a story about anti-ICE protests in Portland.

DHS to Scan Social Media Posts Looking for “Domestic Terrorists” After Capitol Breach

The Department of Homeland Security (DHS) plans to launch a warning system to detect “domestic terrorism” threats by gathering and analyzing intelligence on public social media posts and making predictions on future actions.

The purpose of the system is to detect the sort of posts that allegedly proceeded the breach of the US Capitol on January 6. Law enforcement agencies were criticized for ignoring or missing the posts.

East Coast, Southern U.S. See Gas Shortages After Cyberattack on Major Pipeline

Motorists across the American east coast and south are struggling to find diesel and gasoline as gas stations run dry amid the Colonial pipeline disruption caused by a criminal hack.

Convenience stores and gas stations are turning customers away as many are panic-buying petrol, causing tanks to run dry amid the shortage.

A Washington D.C.-area fuel distributor warned that “catastrophic” shortages are imminent, calling on government officials to order school buses to stay off the roads.

On Friday, Colonial Pipeline ceased operations and notified the federal government that it had been targeted by a ransomware cyberattack. Colonial has said little about its next steps, leaving oil refiners and distributors out of the loop on what will happen over the next 48 hours.

Hundreds in Orange County Protest COVID Vaccine Passports: ‘You’Re Not Going to Brand Us’

On the same day that Orange County recorded some of its most positive coronavirus statistics to date — nearing the least restrictive yellow tier in the state’s reopening blueprint — hundreds of protesters gathered to blast the Board of Supervisors for a proposal to create “vaccine passports,” or digital records that document COVID-19 vaccination status.

The public backlash began in April after the county announced plans to launch a pilot program for credentialing. Almost immediately, a vocal group of opponents expressed concern that the digital records would be used to “track” people and reveal private healthcare information. Opponents also said it would allow the county to favor residents who chose to get vaccinated.

County officials have repeatedly said the claims are not true.

‘It is Time to Unmask.’ Manatee County Students to Go Maskless in Parent Led Protest

May 11—As Manatee County schools near the finish line for the year, some families are renewing their push to end a district-wide mask mandate.

On Monday, with less than two weeks before the semester ends, some parents will send their children to school without masks, protesting a requirement that everyone wear a face covering in district schools, offices and buses. And while the School Board was already moving toward ending its mandate before the new school year in August, the process was too slow for some parents.

Men Charged With Murdering Ahmaud Arbery Plead Not Guilty to Hate Crime

The three men accused of hunting down Ahmaud Arbery in Georgia and fatally shooting him pleaded not guilty to federal hate crime charges Tuesday afternoon.

Greg McMichael, his adult son Travis McMichael, and William “Roddie” Bryan appeared before US Magistrate Judge Benjamin Cheesbro in a hearing at the Brunswick federal courthouse. The trio is already facing state murder charges in the killing.

The men, charged with violating Arbery’s civil rights and attempted kidnapping, made no statements to the court beyond basic answers to the judge before entering not guilty pleas to all charges.

Last February, the McMichaels saw Arbery, 25, running past their home and suspected he was a burglar who’d been recorded on video inside a nearby home under construction — so they armed themselves and chased him in a pickup truck.

Michigan Students Report Other Students to School for Wearing Sombreros in Social Media Posts

It all started with denouncing acts done in a more clearly derogatory, race-based context, like wearing black or brownface costumes — but then started to incorporate even what might look like innocent enough cases of people wearing clothes typical of another culture.

Now, the New York Times of all outlets is calling out the Centers for Disease Control (CDC) for a bulls**t claim that “less than 10 percent” of COVID-19 transmission happens outdoors.

In reality, it’s more like 1% or less, and the Times nails them on it.

Amid declining COVID-19 cases, and readily available vaccinations to adults, the Republican governor claimed it goes against “all logic” to continue to force children to wear masks against their parent’s wishes.

Suspect Identified in Times Square Shooting That Left 4-Year-Old, Two Others Injured

The man suspected of a shooting in New York City’s Times Square that injured three bystanders, including a 4-year-old girl, has been identified but is still on the run, police said Monday.

Farrakhan Muhammad was identified by two senior New York City Police Department officials as the person of interest in the Saturday afternoon shooting on West 45th Street and 7th Avenue, NBC New York reported. The officials said detectives think Muhammad was trying to shoot his brother but missed, hitting the pedestrians in the busy tourist hub.

Police on Saturday released a video of the person of interest.

The girl, identified as Skye Martinez, was shopping for toys with her family when she was struck in the leg, police said.

Wendy Magrinat, 23, was struck in a thigh, and Mạrcela Aldana, 43, was hit in a foot, they said.

Magrinat, a Rhode Island resident who was on a Mother’s Day trip to New York City, told NBC New York that doctors told her she will likely have a bullet lodged in her leg for the rest of her life because more damage would be done if it was removed.

None of the victims’ injuries were life-threatening, but Skye had to undergo surgery, authorities said.

Texas: Muslim Who Helped His Father Evade Capture After Murdering His Sisters Gets Ten Years

But no one is facing up to the reality of Islamic honor killing in the U.S. My latest in FrontPage:

In Fort Worth, Texas on Tuesday, a 32-year-old Muslim named Islam Said was sentenced to ten years in prison for spending the last thirteen years helping his father, Yaser Said, one of the FBI’s Most Wanted criminals, evade capture. Yaser Said was wanted for murdering his two daughters, Islam Said’s sisters, Amina and Sarah Said. What kind of man would know that his father had murdered his two sisters and then help his father avoid justice, rather than turning him in? The answer to that question is far too uncomfortable and inconvenient for law enforcement officials to face honestly.

Whitmer Threatens Enbridge as Refinery Workers Protest Line 5 Closure Deadline

Lansing — While the state’s Democratic attorney general is saying she can’t close Line 5 without a court order, Michigan’s Democratic governor is insisting Enbridge will be considered a trespasser if it continues to operate the oil pipeline in the Straits of Mackinac after Wednesday.

Gov. Gretchen Whitmer warned an Enbridge executive Tuesday that if the Canadian company continued to operate in the Straits past Wednesday, the state would seek its profits if it eventually prevails in its legal fight to revoke the pipeline’s easement. Continued operations would be considered “an intentional trespass,” she said.

The company, Whitmer said, “will be liable for unjust enrichment, which will require disgorgement to the state of all profits derived from its wrongful use of the state’s property.”

The group, whose stated aim is to use nonviolent protest to force government action on climate change, has staged numerous high-profile protests in the UK, US and other developed nations including Germany.

Why was she arrested?

The group said Bradbrook had been arrested on charges relating to its action campaign against financial institutions known as “Money Rebellion.”

“Extinction Rebellion cofounder Gail Bradbrook was arrested by officers from the Metropolitan Police at her home in Stroud at around 5:30 a.m. this morning for conspiracy to cause criminal damage and fraud in relation to Money Rebellion’s debt disobedience,” a spokeswoman for the group said.

“A civil war is brewing in France and you know it perfectly well,” the military members warn, adding that the French government must take swift action to ensure “the survival of our country.”

Ignoring Privacy and Civil Liberties Concerns, UK Pushes Ahead With Vaccine Passport

Despite continuous warnings from experts, the UK government has decided to go ahead with using the NHS app for validating the vaccination status of individuals. Several privacy advocate groups and security researchers have argued against such a move as identifiable private medical information of UK citizens would be made vulnerable to theft, not to mention the civil liberties implications.

The NHS App, launched back in January 2019, is now going to be used as the vaccine passport starting from May 19 in the UK. “You can access the app through mobile devices such as a smartphone or by tablet. Proof of your COVID-19 vaccination status will be shown within the NHS app,” said the UK government this week.

‘It is About the Survival of Our Country’ — French Soldiers Publish Second Open Letter Warning of Civil War

In the wake of an open letter directed to the government of President Emmanuel Macron on April 21 by 26 retired French generals and 7,600 retired military personnel warning about an impending civil war in France, French news portal Valeurs Actuelles has published another one, this time signed by active members of the French armed forces, essentially repeating the stern warning of the previous one about Islam, parallel societies, and spiraling violence threatening to destroy French society.

In the original letter, which made national headlines and sparked a fierce public debate, the signatories warned that “if nothing is done, laxity will continue to spread inexorably in society, ultimately causing an explosion and the intervention of our active comrades in a perilous mission to protect our civilizational values and safeguard our compatriots on the national territory.” This is why, according to them, “it is no longer time to procrastinate. Otherwise, tomorrow, the civil war will put an end to this growing chaos, and the dead, for whom you will bear responsibility, will count in the thousands.”

Merkel’s Successor Claims Czechia, Hungary, Poland Must ‘Return to Europe’

In a sign that conservative countries in Central Europe may come under increasing pressure regardless of who wins Germany’s upcoming federal elections, Angela Merkel’s successor, Armin Laschet, has called on Czechia, Hungary and Poland to return to the core of Europe.

Laschet, who is portrayed as representing conservatives in Germany as the chancellor candidate of Christian Democratic Union (CDU) is expected to continue the left-ward shift the party experienced under Merkel. At the same time, he has also been portrayed as a candidate seeking compromise and would likely continue the close economic cooperation with Central European nations that Germany has increasingly pursued. As the CDU has shifted left, the Alternative for Germany (AfD) has taken up the mantle on conservative positions related to immigration and patriotism.

Socialist politician Jean-Luc Mélenchon has vowed to “purge” the military if he is elected president after active servicemembers wrote a letter warning that France is on the verge of “civil war.”

The letter was initially released by an unknown number of serving soldiers but attracted the support of over 250,000 members of the public within 24 hours.

It warns President Macron that “a civil war is brewing in France and you know it perfectly well” due to the fact that “hatred for France and its history (is) becoming the norm” thanks to the “anti-racism” movement and millions of immigrants who have failed to integrate into society.

Far-left politician Mélenchon, who came fourth in the 2017 presidential election, reacted strongly by vowing to uncover and purge any members of the military who signed the letter.

Social Media Leads to Lack of Trust and Division, Says Speaker of Hungarian Parliament

Social media and the spread of fake news undermines public trust, polarizes societies and is a means of manipulation,said President of the Hungarian Parliament Laszló Kövér at a conference of European Union speakers of the house on Monday. The conference was chaired by the presidents of the two chambers of the German federal Parliament, the Bundestag and Bundesrat, and is part of a year-long series of events designed to discuss the future of the European Union.

Kövér said that the handling of the series of conferences, which will run until the spring of 2022, with the participation of the EU institutions, member states, local authorities and EU citizens, gives the impression that the whole process is a spectacle, with a pre-written scenario and a pre-determined outcome. He emphasized that it was not the European Parliament, the European Commission or the European Council that had the strongest democratic legitimacy in the EU, but national parliaments.

UK: Jailed Would-be Jihad Mass Murderer Tells Judge: ‘I Hate You Very Much, You Are an Evil Man’

It would be salutary and illuminating for British officials to ask themselves why Ahmed Hassan thinks Michael Evans is an evil man, and to allow the answer to be dictated by the evidence, rather than by their own wishful thinking and politically correct prejudices. It would shed a great deal of light on the motives and goals of Ahmed Hassan and others like him. But British officials are not going to ask themselves that question, which in itself indicates that they know where such an inquiry would lead.

UK: Workers ‘Stuck’ Due to Extinction Rebellion Newspaper Protest

Workers were stuck at a newspaper printing plant for up to seven hours after members of Extinction Rebellion staged a protest outside the main gates, a court heard.

A group erected two bamboo structures and parked two vans across the entrance to The Sun’s printing plant in Hertfordshire on 4 September.

It is estimated the blockade stopped 3.5 million newspapers being delivered.

Six defendants deny a charge of wilfully obstructing a highway.

The trial at St Albans Magistrates’ Court was delayed for a second time in as many days as one of the accused, Sally Davidson, left the court room after judge Sally Fudge said her co-defendant Liam Norton would be tried in his absence.

On Monday, 36-year-old Mr Norton delayed proceedings for three hours after he glued his hand to a table and filmed himself on his phone in court.

School Shooting in Russia Kills 9 People; Suspect Arrested

MOSCOW (AP) — A gunman launched an attack on a school in the Russian city of Kazan that left at least nine people dead Tuesday — including seven youngsters — and sent students running out of the building as smoke poured from one of the windows.

At least 21 others were hospitalized, six in extremely grave condition, authorities said.

The attacker, identified only as a 19-year-old, was arrested, officials said. They gave no immediate details on a motive.

But Russian media said the gunman was a former student at the school who called himself “a god” on his account on the messaging app Telegram and promised to “kill a large amount of biomass” on the morning of the shooting.

Attacks on schools are rare in Russia, and President Vladimir Putin reacted by ordering the head of the country’s National Guard to revise regulations on the types of weapons allowed for civilian use.

Four boys and three girls, all eighth-graders, died, as well as a teacher and another school employee, said Rustam Minnikhanov, governor of the Tatarstan republic, where Kazan is the capital.

Footage released by Russian media showed students dressed in black and white running out of the building. Another video depicted shattered windows, a stream of smoke coming out of one, and the sound of gunfire. Dozens of ambulances lined up at the entrance…

India: Muslim Civil Engineer Wishes Death on Modi, ‘I Just Hope Modi Never Gets to Live Central Vista’

An interesting and provocative Facebook post surfaced yesterday. In a public post made on the social media site, Shoaib Naqvi, a resident of New Delhi, India, wishes death upon the Indian Prime Minister, Narendra Modi.

He writes, “I just hope Modi never gets to live Central Vista.”

Central Vista is India’s central administrative area, located near Raisina Hill, New Delhi. The concerned “Central Vista Project” refers to the construction of a new triangular Parliament building that will be able to accommodate central government offices allotted to key positions, and will include the Prime Minister’s residence. Given that the initiative was taken by the present Prime Minister, who is detested by the liberal camp with a passion, media platforms have been slandering the project in every way they can.

What’s the Origin of COVID? Did People or Nature Open Pandora’s Box at Wuhan?

The COVID-19 pandemic has disrupted lives the world over for more than a year. Its death toll will soon reach three million people. Yet the origin of pandemic remains uncertain: the political agendas of governments and scientists have generated thick clouds of obfuscation, which the mainstream press seems helpless to dispel.

In what follows I will sort through the available scientific facts, which hold many clues as to what happened, and provide readers with the evidence to make their own judgments. I will then try to assess the complex issue of blame, which starts with, but extends far beyond, the government of China.

By the end of this article, you may have learned a lot about the molecular biology of viruses. I will try to keep this process as painless as possible. But the science cannot be avoided because for now, and probably for a long time hence, it offers the only sure thread through the maze.

The virus that caused the pandemic is known officially as SARS-CoV-2, but can be called SARS2 for short. As many people know, there are two main theories about its origin. One is that it jumped naturally from wildlife to people. The other is that the virus was under study in a lab, from which it escaped. It matters a great deal which is the case if we hope to prevent a second such occurrence.

I’ll describe the two theories, explain why each is plausible, and then ask which provides the better explanation of the available facts. It’s important to note that so far there is no direct evidence for either theory. Each depends on a set of reasonable conjectures but so far lacks proof. So I have only clues, not conclusions, to offer. But those clues point in a specific direction. And having inferred that direction, I’m going to delineate some of the strands in this tangled skein of disaster.[…]

  1. “detained”
    “UK officials detained 49 migrants in three small boats.”
    Here “detained” is a dishonest euphemism for “accommodated in hotels”.
