Big Employment Gaps for EU Natives vs. Non-EU Workers in Many Member States

Not only has the employment rate in the EU fallen in 2020, but immigrants from outside the EU are also a growing challenge in the EU labor market, news and opinion portal Mandiner writes.

In 2020, the employment rate for the age cohort of 20 to 64 among those born outside the EU was 61.9 percent, while for intra-EU workers and indigenous nationals it was already 73.5 percent, according to Eurostat.

Hungary Q1 GDP Shows Decline But Exceeds Expectations

Hungary’s upwardly revised first-quarter GDP data showed surprisingly positive developments, analysts told national news agency MTI on Tuesday.

In the second estimate issued by the Central Statistical Office (KSH), Hungary improved its GDP indicators for the first quarter upwards compared to its first estimate, which were published two weeks ago and were already a pleasant surprise. The volume of gross domestic product was 2.1 percent lower than in the first quarter of last year, which is 0.2 percent less than in the first estimate.

According to seasonally and workday-adjusted data, the performance of the economy increased by 2 percent in the previous quarter from 1.6 percent in the previous quarter, decreasing by 1.6 percent compared to the same quarter of the previous year, which is 0.4 percentage points less than in the previous quarter. Analysts expected a 0.3 percent decline from the previous quarter and a 3.7 percent decline from a year earlier before the first estimate was published.

“I’m Holding Myself Accountable”: California Teacher Cancels Herself as a White Person Teaching Spanish

Authored by Jonathan Turley

We have seen in recent years that public attestations of being a racist have become more common among academics. Last year, we discussed the controversy over the acting Northwestern Law Dean declaring publicly to “I am James Speta and I am a racist.” He was followed by Emily Mullin, executive director of major gifts, who announced, “I am a racist and a gatekeeper of white supremacy. I will work to be better.” Recently, Brandeis’ Assistant Deans, Kate Slater, has triggered a similar controversy after declaring “all white people are racists.” Some have gone further. At CUNY, the Law Dean Mary Lou Bilek cancelled herself for once referring to herself as a “slaveholder” in a meeting jn arguing for greater protections for minority students. Now, an Oklahoma State PhD student and teacher Jessica Bridges has cancelled herself from teaching Spanish because she is white.

Breaking: Andy Ngo Speaks Out After Being Brutally Assaulted by Antifa in Portland Streets

Prominent journalist Andy Ngo, an expert on the Antifa movement, is speaking out after he was chased and assaulted by black-clad Antifa extremists Friday night while covering the latest far-left protest in Portland. The recent assault is the second time Ngo was brutalized by Antifa militants in the Rose City.

“No journalist in America should ever face violence for doing his or her job,” Ngo tweeted Wednesday following the attack. “Yet on Friday, May 28, Antifa tried to kill me again while I was reporting on the ongoing protests and riots in Portland…”

Change: Majority of Americans, Plurality of Dems Now Believe Lab-Leak Theory is Probably True

Here’s another reason why Leana Wen, however well-meaning, probably shouldn’t worry about what might happen if Americans come around to believing that the coronavirus leaked from a Chinese lab.

Most already believe it. And a near-majority believed it right from the start.

Republicans were all-in on the lab-leak possibility since 2020 but Democrats and especially independents have come around lately now that the expert class has grown newly credulous about it.

CNN Bleeds Viewers as Fox News Dominates

As CNN falls below a million average viewers during prime time hours, Fox News dominated ratings as the only cable TV channel with more than 2 million viewers.

In the newly released Nielsen ratings for the month of May, Fox dominated above every other all cable news channel. Fox News has 14 programs with higher ratings than CNN’s top rated show. Fox was the only channel with more than 2 million viewers in the 8pm — 11pm slot. MSNBC finished second with an average of 1.5 million and TNT, ESPN and HGTV rounded out the top five.

While Fox News surges, CNN saw two thirds of viewers leave from their three most popular programs: Anderson Cooper, Chris Cuomo and Don Lemon. CNN’s total day viewers is down more than 70% from January. Fox News also dominates total day viewers with 1.2 million viewers while No. 2 MSNBC settled for only 835,000.

Coverage of Portland Violence Blasted After Media Dismissed Unrest: ‘Same Phenomenon as the Lab-Leak Theory’

Media outlets who previously reported that violent unrest in Portland, Oregon, was exaggerated are facing criticism after a new report on how the city’s minority communities are reeling from crime.

“Anarchists and an increase in violent crime hijack Portland’s social justice movement,” a Washington Post headline read on Monday.

“After months of social-justice activism that made Portland a vivid, sometimes violent focal point for a nation debating the same issues around police accountability and reform, the movement here has splintered into bickering groups, at odds over tactics, goals and an overall direction for how to make the city safer, with the police force still at the debate’s bitter center,” reporter Scott Wilson wrote.

At least 30 homicides had been committed by May and by the end of the year, the Post reported, Portland “could see more slayings … than in the past four decades.”

New York Magazine writer Jonathan Chait encouraged his followers to read the “very upsetting” report about the crime wave’s disproportionate impact on the city’s Black community. The piece also delved into the effects of anarchists and anti-police reform efforts in the liberal city

But those who have followed the media coverage of Portland over the past year shared tweets from reporters last year that suggested that the city was largely peaceful. Pundits carried that narrative despite over 100 consecutive days of riots in the city last year following high-profile police-involved deaths, including the murder of George Floyd in Minneapolis. Those riots devastated the city’s reputation and led to a sharp decrease in morale among its police officers.

DeSantis on NCAA Threat to Pull Events From States That Protect Girl Sports: ‘To Hell’ With Your ‘Events’

Florida Republican Governor Ron DeSantis slammed the NCAA during a Fox News interview on Tuesday night that highlighted a bill that DeSantis signed earlier in the day that protected girl’s sports in the state.

“I think as these bills were going through various legislatures, I remember the NCAA put out a statement saying any state that enacts this, we’re not going to hold events there,” DeSantis said. “And so I called the Speaker of the House in Florida and I said, ‘did you hear what they said?’ And he’s like, ‘yeah,’ I said, we definitely got to get this done.”

“You can’t be cowed by these organizations, or particularly by woke corporations from doing the right thing. And so my view was throughout this whole time, we have to protect our girls, it is discriminatory to force them to compete against biological males,” DeSantis continued. “And so if the price of having a tournament is that I have to deny equal opportunity to hundreds of thousands of young girl and women athletes throughout Florida, I am much more willing to stand with the girls. And to hell with these events.”

Google Bans Dr. Vladimir Zelenko From Sharing Google Docs

Google has been expanding censorship around Covid topics and users it disapproves of from the public-facing platforms like YouTube and Search — to Google Docs.

Dr. Vladimir Zelenko — a Westchester, New York-based US physician who became known last year for proposing alternative Covid treatments that was endorsed by then President Donald Trump — is on the receiving end.

After Facebook and YouTube restricted Zelenko’s presence on the social networks and Twitter suspended his account, the doctor is now prevented from sharing documents — six in all — using Google Docs.

The documents once again concern the Covid pandemic, discussing Zelenko’s own approach to the outbreak that included the use of hydroxychloroquine, azithromycin, and zinc, which he says played a significant role in preventing the need to hospitalize patients, Newsbusters reported.

Judge Rules Against Noem in Fireworks Lawsuit; Noem Vows to Appeal for 2022

SIOUX FALLS, S.D. (KELO) — A federal court has ruled there will be no Fourth of July fireworks at Mount Rushmore.

Judge Roberto A. Lange said today in the ruling that while fireworks on July 3 “at first blush” seems like a good idea, the “Court is not called upon to determine whether such a fireworks display is a good idea.”

In short, Lange said that the state did not meet requirements for him to rule in Noem and the state’s favor.

In a post on her Governor’s Twitter Account, Noem said “The Biden Administration cancelled South Dakota’s Mount Rushmore Fireworks Celebration on completely arbitrary grounds. I am disappointed the court gave cover to this unlawful action with today’s decision.”

They allowed the resulting creature to live and grow for 19 days before terminating it. The researchers responsible for the technology used in the experiment said their work aided the study of embryonic development.

I’m not saying he is a jihadi. He seems like a nut, with a smorgasbord of subversive material of all kinds. But why does the Post not deign to mention that some of that material was Islamic? Why does the establishment media always consider it a duty to cover up for Islam and the crimes done in its name and in accord with its teachings?

“China wanted the world to believed that their Herculean quarantining efforts contained the outbreak,” the physicist wrote, adding, “However, I don’t think this is true.”

Twitter Sued, Accused of Being “Deputized” To Carry Out Censorship on Behalf of Biden Administration

The American Freedom Law Center (AFLC) is suing Twitter and the company’s CEO Jack Dorsey, as well as US President Joe Biden, for colluding to impose online censorship of criticism of the government’s policy on COVID, the vaccination-related issues in particular.

The lawsuit alleges that the current US administration is using major social networks to work around the fact that the constitution prohibits it from censoring speech critical of its policies; instead, as AFLC Senior Counsel David Yerushalmi put it, privately owned platforms have been “deputized” to carry out that work.

The platform did not provide a reason for deleting the tweet and restricting the mRNA technology expert.

“I believe the ‘shedding’ idea is that the vaccinated shed spike protein, not virus. And, it’s certainly true that people vaccinated with mRNA vaccines shed spike protein, but in miniscule amounts that almost certainly can’t cause disease/malaise in others,” Luigi Warren wrote on Twitter on May 26.

It is an ‘Accursed Sect’: Archbishop Viganò Strongly Denounces the Promoters of the ‘Great Reset’

Archbishop Carlo Maria Viganò, the former Apostolic Nuncio to the U.S., unmasked once again, at the Venice Summit, the plan of a group of billionaires to impose a world tyranny, in his speech “Great Reset: the last great lie.”

Viganò relates the Great Reset to the so-called New World Order and explains its action: “to spread the infernal chaos, in which everything that civilization has laboriously built over the millennia, under the inspiration of [Divine] Grace, will be overturned and perverted, corrupted and erased,” he said on May 30.

He further explains that this is the continuation of ancient combat led by “a few tyrants,” and the Great Reset is the last stage.

He adds, “And to achieve this end, the last step is the establishment of a synarchy in which a few faceless tyrants, thirsty for power, dedicated to the cult of death and sin, to the hatred of life, of virtue and of beauty, rule.”

He also specifies the names of some powerful family members who for centuries have secretly hatched the destructive plan, now also availing themselves of the controversial worldwide vaccination plan.

“The members of this cursed sect are not only Bill Gates, George Soros or Klaus Schwab, but those who have been plotting in the shadows for centuries to overthrow the Kingdom of Christ: the Rothschilds, the Rockefellers, the Warburgs …”.

Szymon Holownia’s Poland 2050 has also solidified its lead of the opposition with 22.9 percent of the vote. Holownia’s party is far ahead of the Civic Platform (PO) which can expect only 15.9 percent of support.

The Left Party would also pass the election threshold and receive 9.4 percent of the vote, as would the right-wing Confederation with 7.3 percent.

Top German Green Party Leaders Favor Proxy War Against Russia

In a recent interview for the German newspaper Frankfurter Allgemeine Zeitung, Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky has reaffirmed his country’s intention to purchase military equipment from Germany. The US and European NATO members were thus far reluctant to sell state-of-the-art equipment to Ukraine in fear of this leading to further escalation in the region, and of retaliatory measures from Russia.

In 2019, an agreement was signed for the purchase of US-made Javelin anti-tank missiles, and the Biden administration has pledged more for 2021, namely some patrol boats and counter-artillery radars. However, the amount of defense equipment that trickles through to Ukraine from the West is little more than a political than a statement of intent from NATO members, and can hardly make a dent in the amount of equipment needed to defend against a possible threat from Russian-backed separatists. According to Zelensky, his country is facing a new threat from Belarus as well, since its totalitarian regime is entirely dependent on Russian support for its survival and could engage in provocations at Moscow’s behest.

During a visit to Ukraine, the leader of the German Green Party, Robert Habeck, had signaled to Zelensky that his party would be willing to support the export of state-of-the-art German defense equipment to Ukraine. Although Habeck himself did not specify what kind of military gear would he be willing to sell to Ukraine, sources listed assault rifles, missile patrol boats and counter-artillery radar as the ones being on their shopping list.

UK May Extend Length of School Days to Make Up for Lessons Lost to Lockdown

Britain’s education minister has said the government is mulling whether the school day should be extended as part of a £1.4 billion project to ensure kids don’t lose out on education due to school closures during the pandemic.

Speaking to Sky News on Wednesday, Education Secretary Gavin Williamson said the government would be working with schools, teachers, and parents to deliver the best outcome for Britain’s kids.

He noted there was “a debate to be had as to whether children should be exiting the school gate — as they do in some schools — at 2.45pm, or whether they should be in school later.”

UK: Leading Immunologist: ‘We Can’t Hide Down a Hole Every Time There’s a New Variant’

A leading immunologist has advised the UK government to “move on” with reopening society, warning that coronavirus is “here to stay” and that it makes no sense trying to hide every time a new variant emerges.

The BBC reports the comments by Sir John Bell, a Chair of Medicine at the University of Oxford, member of the Office for Strategic Coordination of Health Research (OSCHR), and a leading member of the government’s vaccine taskforce.

In an interview with BBC Radio Four, Bell urged that “If we scamper down a rabbit hole every time we see a new variant, we’re going to spend a long time huddled away.”

UK: Liberties Groups Warn People Being Convicted Without Trial for Lockdown Breaches

A coalition of liberties rights groups has warned that people in the UK are being convicted of breaking coronavirus “laws” without being provided the means to plead innocent.

The London Independent reports that cases are being processed under a system known as the ‘Single Justice Procedure’ where one magistrate decides the outcome of a case based solely on evidence supplied by police.

This means that anyone accused of breaching lockdown restrictions could be found guilty and notified by letter without even getting a court hearing.

Iran’s Largest Warship Mysteriously Catches Fire and Sinks in Gulf of Oman

Just as negotiators were preparing to meet in Vienna on Wednesday to wrap up the latest round of talks on reviving the Iran nuclear deal, Iran’s largest warship caught fire Wednesday in the Gulf of Oman and sank under unclear circumstances.

The Fars and Tasnim news agencies reported that efforts to save the support warship, named Kharg (after the island where Iran’s main oil terminal sits), were a failure. The fire started around 0225 local time roughly 1,270 kilometers (790 miles) southeast of Tehran in the Gulf of Oman, not far from the Strait of Hormuz, where several Saudi oil tankers have been attacked in recent years (the US Navy accused the Iranians of using limpet mines to carry out these attacks).

China’s Belt and Road Being Built With Forced Labor

“The entire Belt and Road initiative is based on forced labor,” according to Li Qiang, director of China Labor Watch. “Chinese authorities want the Belt and Road projects for political gain and need to use these workers.”

Twitter Censors Nigeria’s President

On Wednesday, Twitter removed a post by Nigeria’s President Muhammadu Buhari that threatened punishment on a separatist group blamed for recent attacks on police stations and electoral offices in the Biafra region. Twitter claimed the tweet violated its policy on “abusive behavior.”

It’s worth noting that Buhari’s government has in the past also been accused of censorship.

In the tweet, Buhari referenced the 1967-1970 civil war in the nation’s southeastern Biafra region, which killed about one million people. He served in the army at the time, claiming that those now misbehaving in Biafra are too young to recall the death and destruction the previous civil war caused.

“Those of us in the fields for 30 months, who went through the war, will treat them in the language they understand,” he warned in the tweet.

Britain Braced for Summer of Migrant Mayhem: ‘Phenomenal’ Numbers Continue to Arrive Despite Priti’s Border Crackdown

Britain is braced for a summer of migrant chaos after more than 1,600 arrived across the Channel in the past month — more than double last year’s total for May — and 500 were brought in over the final four days of last month alone.

This is despite Priti Patel’s announcement of an immigration crackdown in March, and following an agreement with the French authorities to crack down and effectively stop migrant crossings by last spring.

But the Home Secretary’s vow lies in tatters this summer as Home Office sources blame the French for not doing enough to stop the crossings and intercept boats before they even set sail, despite being handed a £28million fund of UK taxpayers’ money to do so.

One thought on “Gates of Vienna News Feed 6/2/2021

  1. “We have seen in recent years that public attestations of being a racist have become more common among academics.” – Things may lay deeper. The US can appreciate the enormous progress China has made. And how it started – by the Cultural Revolution, where the teachers had to kneel before the Hunweibin and repent for being… well for everything. Maybe US wants to repeat the same, so that the big leap forward comes to the Land of the Free as well.
    But – except for public penitence, those guys in the Cultural Revolution had to go to the “reeducation camps”, to toil on the field, to collect cow dung by hand etc – a lot of other than “quality time”.
    So, to believe the likes of Spada, Mullin, and others academics mentioned in the article, I would like to see them not only announcing “I am a racist” but also going to the reeducation brigades…
