Antifa Celebrates After Washington State Police Officer Shot in the Head and Killed

A deputy sheriff in East Vancouver Washington was killed in a shooting incident on Friday evening. Local Antifa have taken to social media to celebrate the officer’s death.

Three distinct gunshots rang out in The Pointe Apartments, on NE 109th Av. and I-205 in Vancouver Washington, close to the Oregon border. The deputy, who remains anonymous at the time of this writing, was severely injured, and, later that same night, died of his wounds.

Beware the Ideology Pimps

The politicians, corporation executives, media personalities and activists who are trying to move the United States toward Globalism and Democratic Socialism are heartless careerists and power hungry con artists. they are selling collectivism. Call it what you like, social justice, anti-fascism or woke, all forms of collectivism are just suave modern cousins to murderous Communism (Maoism, Stalinism, Khmer Rouge, North Korea’s Kim family), brutal Socialism (Nazism, Mussolini) and blood- thirsty Islamofascism.

They are all Utopian, New Man/New World Order ideologies that deny the realities of human nature. They intend to destroy the family and replace religion as the sacred belief system. The process begins with economic control and ends with mind control. The most important similarity, though is often overlooked.

That thing they all have in common is the Pimp(s)…

Cardinal Burke Reproves Pope Francis for ‘Severe and Revolutionary’ Attack on Latin Mass

ROME — U.S. Cardinal Raymond Burke has expressed his “profound sorrow” over Pope Francis’s recent letter drastically restricting the celebration of the Traditional Latin Mass.

On July 16, The pope issued an apostolic letter titled Traditionis Custodes (“Guardians of Tradition”) banning the celebration of the Traditional Latin Mass in Catholic parishes and eliminating existing accommodations to priests who wish to use the extraordinary form of the Catholic liturgy.

Critical Race Theory to Face First Major Political Test in Virginia

Virginia has, for years, been viewed as turning blue, but the recent debate over critical race theory (CRT) has led some to believe Democrats’ longstanding lead could fall into the red.

The stark contrast between candidates in this year’s gubernatorial race and the off-year nature of the election offer a unique opportunity to glean potential impacts of the controversy.

Former Gov. Terry McAuliffe, who is seeking the job again after holding it from 2014-2018, has largely ignored the issue, at one point stating that it was a “conspiracy” concocted by Republicans. Meanwhile, Republican Glenn Youngkin has made anti-CRT advocacy a prominent part of his campaign.

DeSantis’ Appeal Successful, Court Sides With Florida Against CDC’s COVID-19 Protocols for Cruise Industry

MIAMI — Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis scored a big victory in the courtroom on Friday.

This comes after a judge previously reversed a ruling on the cruise industry’s attempted comeback amid the COVID-19 pandemic.

The decision, which had to do with safety protocols, was appealed, and on Friday a judge sided with Florida against the CDC’s no sail orders.

The cruise industry will now be able to resume operations in Florida without adhering to the CDC’s COVID-19 protocols.

The ruling was effective immediately.

Authored by Isabel Van Brugen via The Epoch Times (emphasis ours)

An electrical engineer from Los Angeles who plotted to steal missile technology and sell it to a Chinese company has been sentenced to more than five years in prison.

Firefighters End Search for Bodies at Surfside Condo Collapse Site

Firefighters ended their search for bodies at the site of a collapsed Florida condo building on Friday, after a month of painstaking work among the dangerous debris that was once piled several stories high.

At least one more missing person is yet to be identified, following the collapse of the 12-story Champlain Towers South in the early hours of June 24. If found, Estelle Hedaya, 54, would bring the death toll to 98.

“As we enter month two alone, without any other families, we feel helpless,” her younger brother Ikey told the Associated Press on Friday.

The site has been mostly swept flat and the rubble moved to a Miami warehouse. Forensic scientists are still at work, some examining the debris at the warehouse, but there are no more bodies to be found where the building once stood…

Judge Tosses Lawsuit by Candace Owens Over Facebook Fact Checks

DOVER, Del. (AP) — A Delaware judge has dismissed a lawsuit filed by conservative political commentator Candace Owens against USA Today and another media organization over fact-checking coronavirus posts she made on Facebook.

The judge ruled earlier this week that Owens had failed to state an actionable claim against USA Today or Lead Stories LLC, a Colorado-based entity. Lead Stories, like USA Today, is paid by Facebook to publish fact-check articles examining whether certain posts contain false information, according to the court ruling. Dozens of outside organizations, including The Associated Press, participate in Facebook’s fact-checking program.

Philadelphia’s Murder Rate Highest Among Largest US Cities

Last spring, Philadelphia Mayor Jim Kenney announced a series of police reforms within the 6,500-member police department. A year later, his administration has succeeded in implementing several of those changes, while others are a work in progress. But over the last year, did those meaningful police reforms result in better public safety?

The answer is no, as Philadelphia was just ranked the highest murder rate per capita among the US’ top largest cities.

Poll: Majority of Unvaccinated Indicate They Will Not Get the Jab

A majority of Americans who have not yet been vaccinated for the Chinese coronavirus indicate they will likely not get the shot, according to The Associated Press-NORC Center for Public Affairs Research survey released this week.

Eighty-one percent of Americans who have not received the vaccine yet say they will “probably” or “definitely” not get the shot. Of those, 45 percent say they “definitely” will not, and 35 percent say they “probably” will not. On the flip side, 16 percent say they “probably” will get the jab, while just three percent say they “definitely” will, indicating that the vast majority of those who have yet to get the vaccine are solid in their decisions.

Revealed: Illinois Democrat Congresswoman Bribed Rival to Not Run Against Her, Offered Six-Figure Job at Congressional Office

Democrat Illinois Rep. Marie Newman admitted to a federal judge that she offered a six-figure job at her congressional office to a potential political rival, an apparent bribe that may be a federal crime.

The broken contract in question was offered to Iymen Chehade, a local Palestinian activist who was considering running against Newman in the primaries last year.

According to legal filings obtained by the Washington Free Beacon, “The contract between Newman and Chehade promised the activist a senior role in Newman’s congressional office should she be elected. The role did not require Chehade to maintain specific hours at the office, despite paying a $140,000 salary. The contract also gave Chehade complete discretion about the selection and employment termination of staff members under his supervision.”

Students Are Facing Facial Recognition Watchlists in Texas Schools

After a mass shooting in 2018, the Santa Fe Independent School District in Texas decided to try facial recognition as an added layer of security.

While the reason for installing the system was reactive, it is hard to ignore the privacy concerns, and the fact that facial recognition is not reliably accurate in identifying people.

The Markup obtained documents detailing how the facial recognition system the school district installed works. In the test run, back in 2019, more than 5,000 student photos were uploaded to the system, and the results, according to the tech company, were impressive.

UK: Farage: Far From Opening Up, We’re Locking Down, As 600,000 Pinged by NHS App

Brexit leader Nigel Farage has said that since ‘Freedom Day’ on Monday, England appears to be locking down rather than opening up, as hundreds of thousands of Britons are told to quarantine after being pinged by the NHS coronavirus app.

The National Health Service app alerts users if they have been in proximity to anyone, also with the phone app, who has tested positive for the Chinese coronavirus and instructs them to self-isolate. Recent weeks have seen an increasing number of people told to quarantine, giving rise to the term ‘pingdemic’. In the first week of July, the NHS app pinged more than 500,000 people; the following week, 600,000.

Facebook Says Users Can Say “Death to Khamenei” For the Next Two Weeks

Facebook has decided to turn a blind eye to a certain type of speech on Facebook. And it doesn’t mean it will suddenly allow users’ political opinions or thoughts about Covid. Instead, people will be able to post “death to Khamenei” on Facebook’s platforms, at least for the next two weeks.

The company had been censoring “death to Khamenei” posts, amid ongoing protests in Iran, for violating its policies on incitement to violence.

Over the past few days, there have been anti-government protests in Iran, including in its capital Tehran, sparked by water shortages in the southwestern region of Khuzestan. During the protests, people have been chanting “death to Khamenei” (Iran’s supreme leader), to express their discontent with the government.

Durban Food Riots Turn the Wheel of History

South Africa’s social crisis has erupted as the people Cyril Ramaphosa and Jacob Zuma deem expendable, those who bear the brunt of the past and of the social costs of Covid-19, appropriate the bread of life.

At the time of writing the riots engulfing Durban and other towns in KwaZulu-Natal, and also present in parts of Gauteng and the Eastern Cape, have the kind of scale and velocity that makes definitive statements unwise. There are sure to be local differences in how things are playing out, and new developments can and will happen at any moment. The full consequences of the decision to send in the army, made just as this article went to press, are not yet clear.

But one thing is: Durban has been engulfed by food riots. New Frame spoke to grassroots activists across the city on 11 and 12 July and without exception every one of them said the riots are about food, not Jacob Zuma. It is food shops that have been consistently targeted, and food that has been appropriated at a massive scale.

Of course, the spark was lit by the displays of impunity and acts of disruption and arson carried out by Zuma supporters, but this was the spark to the tinder. With mass impoverishment, unemployment and hunger, the only surprise is that this did not happen earlier.

The scale of the riots is not the only new development. The protests that have regularly been organised from shack settlements across the country since 2004, and in Durban since 2005, have generally taken the form of road blockades — of disruption rather than appropriation. Now there is popular appropriation of food on an extraordinary scale…

10 thoughts on “Gates of Vienna News Feed 7/24/2021

  1. So, if I understand it correctly, South Africa is crazy, California is crazy, EU is locking down in the middle of summer and there are protests against that everywhere, Australia…

    I have a feeling that the “great reset” is near.

    I do wonder whether current “crazy weather” has anything to do with weather modifications. For all those affected by “big unusual storms”, I can only say that I know for a fact that the Czechoslovak “airforce” was making “great big storms” by seeding clouds with bromium silver oxide (not sure if its the correct english name) – as early as in the 1950’s.

    • Judging by the electoral support for the AfD, the likelihood of the beheaded being a part of the solution for what ails Germany is fairly low. In which case the death, while unfortunate for those who were family and friends of the deceased, removes one vote for the political factions competing with one another for which can make Germany part of the caliphate the fastest. And likely might convince a few amongst the brain dead there that they need to be voting against importing yet more orcs into the country.

      “Sometimes one’s whole purpose in life is to serve as a warning to others.”

    • As far as I understood, the victim is a local disadvantaged. I once came across an article on an Italian resource about how migrants drove all the poor Italians out of shelters. And now these people are quietly dying in the streets.

    • Well theresa, it’s not for me to speculate why the Baron let this through, but please give it a rest.

      My ancestry was Quaker and Presbyterian on my mother’s side, and Methodist on my father’s, so all protestant nonconformists, and the Methodists were not only bigoted and hateful, causing my mother (who was “illegitimate”) and my sister distress, but (as we found out after my parents’ deaths) hypocritical. No-one has a monopoly on virtue.

    • Theresa, naught girl! Thinking that the oldest church is satanic is downright blasphemous and heresy at it’s bloody evil core. I would choose more wisely if I where you sunshine, God does not like to be mocked.
