“F**k Joe Biden” Chants Heard Across US College Football Stadiums

Having garnered the most votes of any presidential candidate ever in November, Americans appear to be losing faith in President Biden’s ability to ‘build back better’.

From the embarrassment of his chaotic Afghanistan withdrawal to increasing concerns over his tyrannical plans to ‘control’ the pandemic; and from soaring violent crime to anything-but-transitory food inflation, Americans (both young and old) are seemingly suddenly unafraid to express their dissatisfaction, as from coast to coast, college football stadiums on Saturday were packed with fans chanting “F**k Joe Biden.”

911 Callers in Portland Face Lengthy Hold Times Amid Efforts to Defund the Police

Portland residents calling 911 for emergencies are facing a dramatic increase in hold times, with officials saying that the system is “broken.”

According to The Oregonian, starting in the late spring, the riot-gripped city has faced a sharp increase in 911 calls placed on hold for two minutes or longer.

The national standard for 911 hold times is 15 to 20 seconds, but according to data from the Portland Bureau of Emergency Communications obtained by The Oregonian, 574 of the 911 calls in the city had to wait on hold for more than five minutes in July. This number is more than double that of May, in which 221 calls waited that long, and is drastically more than the figure in March, when only eight 911 calls took more than five minutes to answer.

Parents, Students Protest School Mask Mandate in Genesee County

FLINT, MI — For the first few weeks of this school year, siblings Emmery and Elliott Abraham got on the bus in the morning ready to learn.

Emmery, 10, is in fifth grade, while Elliott, 12, is in seventh.

While living under the same roof at home, and attending the same school, the expectations for safety protocols amid COVID-19 brought stress on the pair of Davison students, said their mother, Jessica Abraham.

One would have to put on a mask, and the other could take it off to go into the same building. Now, they both have to mask up, she said.

“I’m mad. I’m mad. I’m not trying to stop the people that want to wear a mask. I just want a choice for my child,” Jessica Abraham said.

Texas Latest State to Crack Down on Big Tech Censorship

Texas is the latest state to take aim at Big Tech, enacting a law that bans social media giants from censoring content based on political views.

“We will always defend the freedom of speech in Texas,” Gov. Greg Abbott declared as he signed the legislation into law late last week.

“Social media websites have become our modern-day public square. They are a place for healthy public debate where information should be able to flow freely — but there is a dangerous movement by social media companies to silence conservative viewpoints and ideas,” he added. “That is wrong, and we will not allow it in Texas.”

The Texas Legislature passed HB20 during its recently completed special session. The law requires social media companies with 50 million or more users to publicly disclose their content management practices and policies and expressly prohibits them from targeting users solely because of their political or ideological beliefs.

Italy: ENI Announces Magnetic Fusion Breakthrough

First plant could start producing energy over the next decade

(ANSA) — ROME, SEP 8 — Eni announced on Wednesday that CFS, a spin-out company of the Massachusetts Institute of Technology that the Italian energy giant is a major shareholder in, has made a breakthrough towards achieving magnetic confinement fusion.

It said CFS (Commonwealth Fusion Systems) has successfully completed a test aiming to demonstrate the operation of the innovative magnet for plasma fusion confinement, for the first time made with HTS (High Temperature Superconductor) technology.

Magnetic confinement fusion, a technology never tested or applied on an industrial scale before, reproduces the principles through which the Sun generates its own energy, ensuring an enormous quantity of it with zero emissions.

It is potentially a safe, sustainable and inexhaustible energy source and the breakthrough could be a turning point in the path towards decarbonization.

Eni said that CFS intends to build the first experimental device with net energy production named SPARC by 2025, followed by the first demonstration plant, known as ARC, which could start feeding energy into the grid over the next decade.

“For Eni, magnetic confinement fusion holds a pivotal role in the technological research for decarbonization, as it will consent humanity to access large quantities of energy produced in a safe, clean and virtually inexhaustible way, without emissions and changing for good energy generation standards, while contributing to an epochal breakthrough in the direction of human progress and quality of life,” said Eni CEO Claudio Descalzi in a statement .

“The extraordinary result obtained during the test once again demonstrates the strategic importance of our research partnerships in the energy sector and consolidates our contribution to the development of game changer technologies”.

The City of Cape Town warned on Sunday it would intensify its clampdown on illegal events in the coming weeks.

The city said its events department had over the past five months identified 49 planned “unpermitted events” through social media and tip-offs, leading to the arrest of some event organisers.

The events permit office had issued a number of warning letters to event organisers which resulted in eight of them submitting applications for permits while five others decided to cancel planned events.

“During a site inspection at a venue in Salt River in June, an event organiser was found hosting an event without a permit. He was detained and fined R3,500 for contravening the Disaster Management Act regulations and the Liquor Act for the sale of alcohol without having a liquor licence,” the city said in a statement.

Germany: Muslim Migrant Screams ‘Allahu Akbar’ On Train, Train Stopped, Train Station Cordoned Off

German officials were acting with an abundance of caution that jihad enablers might label “Islamophobic.” After all, the establishment media made a full-court press a few years ago to convince Americans that “Allahu akbar” was a benign phrase that only greasy Islamophobes could possibly be concerned about.

In the New York Daily News, Zainab Chaudry of the Hamas-linked Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR) argued that non-Muslims shouldn’t “believe the worst” about “Allahu akbar” because Muslims don’t just scream it while murdering non-Muslims, but use it in a variety of contexts. She even offered this chilling advice, certain to get people killed were it ever heeded: “So the next time you hear Allahu Akbar — whether it’s in a media report, on an airplane, or in a shopping mall, remember that the phrase used by millions of Muslims and Christians daily to praise God regardless of their circumstances, can never be justified for use when harming His creation.” So stay put, evidently; fleeing would be “Islamophobic.”

On CNN, Omar Suleiman — the imam who prevailed upon Google to alter their search results so as to bury any negative information about Islam — also argued that Muslims say “Allahu akbar” in a variety of contexts, many of them positive. And the New York Times actually tweeted that the phrase “Allahu akbar” had “somehow” become “intertwined with terrorism.”

Somehow! How could this have possibly happened? Could it have anything to do with the thousands of Muslims who have screamed “Allahu akbar” while in the process of murdering or trying to murder infidels?

One thought on “Gates of Vienna News Feed 9/12/2021

  1. In case anyone thought that Australia had cornered the market on Marxist fascism, here is a list of NY City’s vax rules.

    Notice that there are no exceptions or exemptions.

    I wonder how many businesses will enforce this when they realize how many customers they will lose. For the time being it doesn’t affect retail stores but I don’t doubt that is coming soon.

    Every day I wish I was younger so I could leave without a second thought. This state is nothing but a beautiful gulag. I honestly think NY is the worst, most repressive in the entire USA.

    As far as resistance- I refer back to your magnificent essay on being played.
