Eurozone Inflation Hit Two Per Cent in May

FRANKFURT, Germany (AP) — Eurozone inflation rose to 2.0% in May, driven higher by rising oil prices as other inflationary pressures appeared to remain subdued.

The modest price rise in Europe compares with a much stronger jump in the US that has led to discussion about the inflationary impact of stimulus and relief policies from government spending and central banks.

2nd Man Pleads in Destruction of Police Car Amid Protests

PITTSBURGH (AP) — A second western Pennsylvania man has pleaded guilty to federal charges in the destruction of a Pittsburgh police car set afire during last year’s protests over the death of George Floyd.

Da’Jon Lengyel, 23, of McKees Rocks pleaded guilty Monday to conspiring to set fire to property of an organization that receives federal funding” and “unlawful interference with a law enforcement officer during a civil disorder.” The Pittsburgh Post-Gazette reports that when asked by a federal judge whether he had done what he was accused of, he said “I did, your honor.”

Court Documents Show Google Admits Privacy is Almost Impossible on Android

Unredacted court documents revealed Google employees admitting the company makes it difficult for Android users to keep their location data private. Google executives admitted the same thing in court testimonies.

Last year, the Arizona Attorney General’s office filed a lawsuit against Google, accusing the tech giant of unlawfully collecting Android users’ location data, even for users that have opted out. Last week, a judge ordered Google to unredact some sections of documents submitted in court, at the request of digital rights groups News Media Alliance and Digital Content Next. The groups argued un-redacting the documents was in the interest of the public, pointing out that Google was using its substantial legal resources to hide its questionable data collection practices.

A judge released an FBI agent accused of shooting a Metro passenger last December — on good faith he returns in two weeks to face charges of second-degree attempted murder.

GOP Rep’s Home Vandalized With Profanity and Anarchist Symbols

South Carolina Representative Nancy Mace’s home was vandalized in the early hours of Memorial Day Monday with vile insults and anarchist graffiti.

Photos posted to her Twitter show the street, sidewalks, and foundation of her house spray painted with the phrases “f*ck you Nancy,” “pass the pro act,” “no gods, no masters,” and “all politicians are b*stards,” along with the anarchy “A” symbol.

“In the early morning hours of Memorial Day, my home, where I’m raising my two children, was vandalized with Antifa symbols and profanity,” wrote Mace.

Hate Hoax: BLM Activist Claimed She Was the Victim of Hate Crimes Including Arson — Video Shows She Started the Fire

A student at Viterbo University in La Crosse, Wisconsin, claims she had been the victim of racist incidents, including arson. However, police discovered that the alleged victim of framed hate crimes was the one caught on surveillance video starting the fire in the university’s residence hall.

Viterbo University student Victoria Unanka is reported to have texted a friend on April 18, claiming that a small fire started in the girl’s residence hall must have been directed towards herself because it began in the next room over.

When police investigated the fire and reviewed security footage, authorities discovered that it was the same student who set the fire.

Infamous DeSantis Conspiracy Theorist Announces Run for Florida Governor

Democrat Nikki Fried, who serves as Florida’s Agricultural Commissioner, is primarying to become the state’s governor.

Fried made the announcement via a Twitter video. In addition to an English version she made alternates with Spanish and Haitian subtitles.

It’s unclear why Nikki Fried didn’t fully commit to speaking Spanish and Haitian in these versions. “Those in power will do whatever harm it takes to stay there,” Fried says in English.

This statement alludes to the controversial background of Fried’s political career.

As the Daily Caller points out, Nikki Fried comes with an airport’s worth of baggage and history.

Maryland Governor Announces End of Enhanced Pandemic Unemployment Benefits Amid Worker Shortages

Maryland Gov. Larry Hogan announced Tuesday that the state will be ending enhanced pandemic unemployment benefits and reinstating the job search requirements as early as next month amid an uptick in COVID-19 vaccinations and worker shortages.

Via press release, Hogan stated that the combination of reaching the 70 percent vaccination-rate threshold in the state and the 12 consecutive months of job growth brought about the discontinuation of the program.

New York Times Writer Scolds Americans Over Social Gatherings in Memorial Day Column, Celebrated BLM Protests

New York Times writer Margaret Renkl scolded Americans in a Memorial Day weekend column who “refused” to give up social gatherings to prevent the spread of the coronavirus, but alternatively celebrated gatherings of Black Lives Matter protestors in various columns she wrote last year.

The liberal writer seemingly ignored her past writings lauding the number of people attending Black Lives Matter protests amid the early months of the pandemic. She blasted those Americans she sarcastically referred to as “patriots,” blaming them for the lack of “another kind of Memorial Day,” in which the lives saved from the coronavirus by Americans joining together in a commitment to national service may have otherwise been known.

Police Chief Pleads Guilty After Allegedly Threatening Arrest of Citizen Over a Facebook Post

A Police Chief in Pennsylvania has pleaded guilty to a civil rights violation charge after threatening a private citizen who posted negative comments about him and his department with “fake arrest.”

The private citizen, Paul DeLorenzo, posted critical comments on Facebook about the West Hazleton Police Department and its Chief Brian Buglio because of the slow response to make an arrest in a case involving him, according to the Middle District of Pennsylvania’s US Attorney’s Office. In his posts, DeLorenzo also accused Buglio of “committing a violent crime.”

Pontiac Stabbing Victim Jumps Out of Second Floor Window to Escape Attacker

A 49-year-old man who had been stabbed Monday escaped from his attacker by jumping out of his Pontiac home’s second floor window, officials said.

Oakland County deputies and medics were called about 11 a.m. Monday to a home in the 300 block of South Jessie Street near Woodward and Auburn for a report of an assault with a knife, according to authorities.

The caller told deputies a man who lived nearby came to his house for help and claimed to have jumped out of a second story window. The caller said the man had been stabbed and said his girlfriend was being sexually assaulted.

Deputies found the victim with multiple stab wounds. Medics rendered aid to the victim.

Deputies said the screen from a second story bedroom window was in the driveway next to a pair of shoes. They also saw blood on the home’s vinyl siding below the window.

During an interview with the male victim and his 37-year-old girlfriend, they told deputies they were at a Detroit laundromat earlier when they asked a man they knew as “Steve Sleeves” for a ride home.

After they arrived at their home, they said that man helped them carry their laundry to an upstairs bedroom where he demanded sex from the woman, officials said. Her boyfriend came to her aid, police said, and he was stabbed multiple times during the struggle.

The female victim told police she threw a lamp at the man and fled the home to get help as her boyfriend jumped out of the window. Deputies said the man fled the home in his vehicle.

The wounded victim was taken to a hospital where he was treated for non-life-threatening injuries.

Washington Court Rules YouTubers Aren’t Members of the News Media

The Washington State Supreme Court rules that YouTubes are not a member of the “News Media,” and therefore do not qualify for press privileges. The ruling shows how existing legislation works against individual and independent journalists whose medium is online platforms.

In the Green vs. Pierce County case, the Washington Supreme Court ruled that the YouTuber is not a member of the “News Media.” Green runs a news YouTube channel called “Liberty’s Champion,” which has more than 18k subscribers. He submitted a public records request to Pierce County after he had a disagreement with a security guard employed by the county. The purpose of the request was to get more information about the county’s security force.

Watch: Students Sign ‘Cancel Memorial Day’ Petition; “it’s a Celebration of U.S. Imperialism and Colonialism”

Students in Washington DC eagerly signed a fake petition to ‘cancel Memorial Day’, agreeing that the holiday “celebrates American Imperialism.”

Smith managed to get 50 signatures in a short time, with some condemning the holiday before even reading the petition.

One student said “I don’t think Memorial Day should be a thing that we celebrate… I feel like it’s a celebration of U.S. imperialism and colonialism.”

‘We Have a Lot of Work to Do. No One is Celebrating, ‘ Supt. Brown Says

After one of the least deadly Memorial Day weekends in recent years, the city’s top cop on Tuesday praised his officers as well as community outreach workers for making the difference.

“They are out there until 2, 3 and 4 in the morning with our Chicago police officers, intervening in ways that Chicago police officers can’t to reduce the violence,” Supt. David Brown said during a briefing at police headquarters.

Three people were killed and 34 others suffered nonfatal gunshot wounds over the weekend.

While the overall tally was the same, this weekend was less deadly than in 2018 when seven were killed and 30 others wounded. Last year, 10 people were shot dead and 39 others wounded over the holiday weekend.

Canada’s War on Churches

Police in Alberta, Canada, have illegally jailed three religious leaders since the start of the year for holding worship services in violation of public health guidelines. Other churches have had their services illegally disrupted, and all have been hit with heavy fines. These actions highlight an intensifying campaign against religious freedom in Canada.

International headlines picked up on one of the most dramatic of these stories. Artur Pawlowski, pastor of a church near Calgary, Alberta, became famous after a viral video from April 4 in which a health inspector, accompanied by police officers without a warrant, interrupted his Easter service. The video shows the pastor confronting the police and telling them to leave the property, calling them “Communists” and “gestapo.”

“I grew up under communism and my grandparents lived under the Nazis,” Pawlowski told the Toronto Sun. “My family escaped the Communists in Poland and first went to Greece and then to Canada to get away from it.”

Yet this was not the end of Mr. Pawlowski’s ordeal.

COVID Jails Legal Battle: Rebel News, JCCF Suing to End Mandatory Quarantine Program

Today in federal court in Toronto, lawyers for Rebel News, alongside lawyers from the Justice Centre for Constitutional Freedoms, are suing the federal government to put an end to Justin Trudeau’s illegal and unconstitutional COVID jail system.

Healthy Canadians arriving by air, who already tested negative for COVID before flying, have been required to quarantine for three days at the cost of thousands of dollars while they await a second PCR test upon landing in Canada. Upon the results of that second PCR test, these healthy COVID-free people are then required to finish out a 14-day quarantine at home.If travellers don’t submit to arbitrary COVID detention, which appears to be up to the discretion of the health agents at the border, or a second COVID test upon arrival, these law-abiding Canadians then face thousands of dollars in fines and possible jail time. Completely healthy people are being arrested, detained and — as we found out today in court — denied the knowledge that they have a right to contact a lawyer, all in the name of “two weeks to flatten the curve.”

The Quebec Curfew is Finally Over!

It’s over, it’s finally over! After almost five months the “four-week” curfew has finally come to an end!

Much like two weeks to flatten the curve has taken over 15 months (and counting), the Quebec curfew lasted for almost five months. The curfew was enforced with heavy-handed policing; if you were caught outside at night without valid paperworkto prove your exemption, and sometimes even if you had those papers, you got a $1,550 fine.

The curfew was arbitrary and served no purpose. All it established was that the political class had complete control over the people.

Demographic Crisis: Newborn Numbers in Romania Drop to 90-Year Low

The demographic crisis is deepening in Romania, with recent data from the National Statistics Institute (INS) showing that the number of citizens in the under-18 age cohort dropped by one-percentage point last year.

Those under the age of 18 now make up 17.6 percent of the population registered as residents in Romania, but this number also includes a significant proportion of those who in fact live abroad.

Last year, 178,609 live births were registered in the country, 24,500 less than in 2019. In comparison, the number of deaths in 2020 approached 300,000. The last time so few children were born in the country was in 1930, the INS pointed out. The Statistical Institute has no data for the period between 1941 and 1945.

Germany: Hamburg Police Shoot Attacker With Knife Shouting ‘Allahu Akbar’

While shouting “Allahu Akbar”, a man in Hamburg attacked car drivers with a knife in Hamburg on Friday afternoon last week. The police were unable to pacify the man with a taser and pepper spray, and the intervention unit eventually shot the attacker, reports the Bild daily.

The incident took place around 4:00 p.m. near Hamburg’s city park in the Winterhude district. The unknown man threatened drivers and stabbed cars while shouting “Allahu Akbar”. As he approached the police with a knife, one of them fired at him. The attacker died of his injuries.

According to police spokeswoman Sandra Levgrün, a religious motivation behind the attack has to be considered.

Map of Islam Project Leads to Controversy and Death Threats in Austria

In Austria, an interactive map of Islam displaying over 600 mosques, prayer houses, and Muslim associations operating in the country is sparking controversy and leading to those behind the project to require protective police custody.

According to the creators, it is intended to provide an overview of those locations which spreads a potentially dangerous interpretation of Islam. However, some domestic and foreign critics claim the map is racist despite the fact that it only has to do with religion and not ethnicity.

The map of Islam was prepared by the Documentation Center for Political Islam (Dokumentationsstelle Politischer Islam), established last year by the current government of ÖVP and the Greens, in collaboration with theologians from the University of Vienna. The goal is to “scientifically document and research” political Islam.

The union’s COVID-19 verification certificate will provide a single system for citizens in member countries to prove their COVID-19 status as they cross borders within the region. The digital pass uses digital signatures and QR codes, with a public key cryptography to prevent forging. Those without smartphones can get paper-based certificates.

Google’s Global Lead in Diversity Called Israelis ‘Jewish Extremists’ Hungry for Violence

A new story from the Free Beacon unearthed a 2007 blog post from someone who is now Google’s Head of Diversity Strategy, Kamau Bobb.

He wrote as if he was a Jewish man in modern times. Bobb mentions that it was nearly 80 years after Kristallnacht in order to make a loose comparison to the Jewish identity.

“If I were a Jew I would be concerned about my insatiable appetite for war and killing in defense of myself. Self defense is undoubtedly an instinct, but I would be afraid of my increasing insensitivity to the suffering [of] others. My greatest torment would be that I’ve misinterpreted the identity offered by my history and transposed spiritual and human compassion with self righteous impunity.”

Church Attacked and Desecrated in Eastern Turkey

05/14/2021 Washington D.C. (International Christian Concern) —International Christian Concern (ICC) has learned that on May 11, 2021, it was discovered that Marta Shimoni Church in Turkey’s village of Mehr was attacked and desecrated by unknown persons. This is the same village where the elderly parents of a Chaldean Catholic priest were kidnapped last year. The wife, Simoni Diril, was later found deceased. Her husband, Hormoz Diril, remains missing.

Marta Shimoni is a cave church built into the mountains, and thus cannot be destroyed in the same way as other churches. Video footage obtained by ICC shows that the destruction was primarily against the Christian items and relics inside the church. Crosses, pictures of Jesus, and rosaries were strewn across the path leading away from the mountain church’s entrance.

Former FDA Commissioner: China Should Have Blood Samples From Sick Wuhan Lab Workers, Where Are They?

Appearing on CBS News’ ‘Face The Nation’ Sunday, former FDA Commissioner Scott Gottlieb pointed out that “definitive” proof that a coronavirus outbreak occurred in the Wuhan lab could be found in blood samples from workers who are now known to have fallen sick and been hospitalised in November 2019.

When asked if he believes China knows where the virus really originated, Gottlieb replied “They would know the answer to the question because they would have blood samples from the workers in that lab.”

“And that’s the evidence that they haven’t made public,” he continued, adding “If, in fact, the blood samples show that a high prevalence of people in that lab have been exposed to this virus, that’s pretty definitive proof that this coursed through that lab.”

Japanese Researchers Use Soybean Compound to Turn Male Fish Into Females

A team of researchers in Japan has succeeded in using a compound found in soybeans similar in effect to female hormones to turn male catfish into females.

“The team, from Kindai University’s Aquaculture Research Institute and based at the institute’s Shingu Station in Shingu, Wakayama Prefecture, used isoflavone — a compound found in soybeans similar in effect to female hormones — to create the all-female groups of catfish. The feat is a Japan first, according to the university,” reports The Mainichi.

The technique is being applied in order to boost production efficiency because females grow quicker to a required shipping weight of around 600 grams.

Revealed: Peter Daszak Previously Thanked Dr. Fauci for Calling Wuhan Lab Leak Theory a ‘Myth’

The backlash against the main public figurehead of America’s response to the COVID pandemic, Dr. Anthony Fauci, continues to intensify this week.

The situation overall renewed its traction after Fauci publicly flip-flopped late last month on the theories about where COVID came from.

For someone who is attempting to stay vague and hold on to some ignorance, he’ll be having a harder time with that thanks to newly uncovered evidence.

Today we’re learning of the close relationship between Peter Daszak and Fauci.

“I think all of the evidence points towards those labs in Wuhan, and if we find out that that’s the origins of this virus, then China really needs to pay,” Cotton urged.

Trinidad and Tobago Islamic Scholar Imran Hosein: COVID-19 is Not Compatible With the Quran, Hence it is Biological Warfare by the Zionists, Who Wish to Annihilate the Arabs in the Holy Land

mam Imran Hosein, an Islamic scholar from Trinidad and Tobago said that the Zionists manufactured the coronavirus in order to wipe out the Arabs from the Holy Land. He made these remarks in a video that was posted on his official YouTube account on May 5, 2021. Hosein claimed that the virus was designed to target only Arab DNA and not Jewish DNA.

Imran Hosein: “Those who are behind this virus… it’s not from nature, it is from a laboratory. And they are in fact pursuing biological warfare. This could not have come from nature. This is my first point, that it is in conflict with our [inaudible] that the virus could then reach all of mankind at the same time. That’s not possible, from the truth which has come from the Quran. If the virus has come from a laboratory, it’s manufactured, it constitutes, as I said, biological warfare. I have given the analyses many, many times so far in this last one year or so that we’ve been living with the virus, that we can recognize the end game. The end game is located in the holy land. And so this virus has Zionist roots in it.

15 Dutch Mayors Unite Against Parallel Societies

The mayors of 15 Dutch cities, including Amsterdam, Rotterdam, Utrecht and the Hague, are calling for a national recovery plan to curb the emergence of parallel societies in migrant communities in the Netherlands. The mayors’ proclamation was published online by the Dutch daily Algemeen Dagblad under the title “Bridge the gap”.

The politically correct term of “vulnerable districts”(“kwetsbare wijken”) used in the Netherlands to describe the phenomenon typically associated with the living areas of non-Western immigrants is often seen as a term that translates to poverty, crime, and unemployment. A similarly vulnerable district is the eastern part of Leeuwarden, whose mayor is also among the petitioners.

Migration Costs France Approximately €25 Billion a Year, Many Migrants Remain Unemployed After Years: Academic

Employment data shows that it is a myth that immigration to France has economic benefits, French author and academic Jean-Paul Gourévitch said in an interview with Radio Sud.

“I have studied this topic extensively and today everyone in France, from the left to the right agrees that immigration costs more than it brings in,” Gourévitch said. “There is a major difference between left and right (oriented) economists regarding the costs: the leftist economists say the deficit is six to ten billion [euros per year], while those on the right say it is 40 to 44 billion. My own scientific research shows that the deficit is 20 to 25 billion [euros].”

Gourévitch also spoke about the debate in Europe and France whether worsening demographic figures should be improved via immigration or domestic demographic incentives.

Spain: 92% of Contacted Moroccan Families Don’t Want Their Children Back From Ceuta

On May 17, there was a rush for the Spanish border by thousands of migrants, including many minors. Now, despite Spanish authorities reaching out to parents whose children illegally crossed the border to reach Spain, these Moroccan parents have little interest in having their children return home.

Last week, authorities in the Spanish city of Ceuta began to focus on the issue of more than a thousand unaccompanied Moroccan minors left in Ceuta in the wake of the migration crisis unleashed on May 17. As El Faro Ceuta reported, there are still hundreds of young people who remain on the streets. The local administration already has 1,125 minors sheltered, and police are reviewing the status of another 920 individuals.

Spanish Coast Guard Travelling Hundreds of Miles to Fetch African Boat Migrants

Migrants departing from African shores are being picked up at sea by Spanish authorities and transported long distances to European soil, according to reports.

Spain’s Sociedad de Salvamento y Seguridad Maritima (Maritime Safety and Rescue Society) has reportedly been executing costly and complex missions to fetch boat migrants and bring them to the Canary Islands, an archipelago off the northwest coast of Africa.

Evidence compiled by political analyst Rubén Pulido indicates Salvamento Maritimo is sending ships and planes hundreds of miles from the Canaries in search of migrants.

Pulido asserts the government agency is effectively colluding with ‘mafias’ to facilitate an ongoing migrant invasion of Europe.

  1. UK: You can now be imprisoned for simply having the wrong thoughts.

    53 yo man, who lives with his mother, is imprisoned for 5½ years, for simply having the wrong thoughts. He committed no crimes whatsoever. Nor did he threaten to.

    An old white man.

    Recall, MUSLIM Anjem Choudry, who for 20 years called for JIHAD against the west, recruited ISIS terrorists, trained the man who beheaded Lee Rigby, a soldier in London, served only 2 years.

    Marxist English Justice System.

    • @Ned Kelly
      It would seem we are in the process of forming an intersectional Top Trumps judicial system.
      Judges, police even, will require a card of ethno/religious/skin colour charts (with access to suspect’s drug use, tough upbringing etc which can mitigate his behaviour – an idea we’ve seen that played to the max in France, when a joint-smoking jihadi murdered an old Jewishwoman and was not held criminally responsible).

      The Sentencing Council in the UK (judges and courts are bound to follow its guidelines) has suggested that non-white youths could be treated more leniently, essentially to make up for racism.
      Of course another way of looking at this is that young white people should be treated more harshly.
      https://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-4288278/Youths-ethnic-minorities-softer-sentences.html
      No equality before the law in other words (and as we’ve learnt in several instances the truth is no defence).

      Muslim girls suffer more than non-Muslim girls when they have been subjected to the heinous crime of rape according to one judge.
      However when white or Sikh girls for example suffered racist rapes at the hands of Muslim-background males, while enduring forced drugging, at times torture and branding, then co-erced into life of prostition, while authorities blamed them for decades and did nothing, suffer less apparently….oh and according to another judge these gang-rapes weren’t ‘hate-crimes’ at all.

      It seems in no small way our police force, (if not already), IS on its way to becoming systemically racist, just not in the way leftists would have us believe.

    Science told us since the 1950’s masks don’t prevent viral spread.
    Science told us since the 1950’s asymptomatic viral spread doesn’t happen…….

    and yet I was labelled the science denier; even got a Facebook ban for posting the actual science, even when I posted articles and links back to the actual science research and reports, not just opinion links. Or that many people made ludicrous statements that didn’t have any science backing up their claims – that I was going to be responsible for getting millions sick by not wearing a mask, not social distancing or just traveling whenever and wherever I pleased. You can’t get anyone sick unless you are actually symptomatic with COVID-19.

    When I was following the science and rejecting “mask” wearing despite over 60 years of scientific research that hasn’t changed regarding the common cold and even with the coronavirus’s newest variant COVID-19….. the masks were pushed by Fauci strictly as a form of kabuki theater to interfere and control peoples lives.

    When I was following the science and rejecting “social distancing” that with over 20 years of scientific research that a bare minimum indoors is 32 feet and over 20 feet in the outdoors, even with regards to the common cold and the coronavirus’s newest variant COVID-19….. the social distancing was pushed by Fauci strictly as a form of kabuki theater to interfere and control peoples lives.

    When I was following the science and rejecting “asymptomatic” spread despite over 100 years of scientific research that hasn’t changed regarding the common cold and even with the coronavirus’s newest variant COVID-19….. the fear mongering of “asymptomatic” spread was pushed by Fauci strictly as a form of kabuki theater to interfere and control peoples lives.
