Gates of Vienna News Feed 9/18/2021

Today’s “Justice for J6” rally in Washington DC attracted a lot fewer Trump supporters than expected. Media and undercover cops were said to outnumber the actual demonstrators. An undercover federal agent was detained by Capitol Police for carrying a firearm. After he showed them his badge, the cops went through the motions of arresting him to keep up appearances.

In other news, anti-lockdown demonstrators in Australia defied police orders and turned out by the thousands to protest totalitarian COVID measures. Protesters overwhelmed police in Richmond, a suburb of Melbourne, and hundreds were arrested.

Lion or Gazelle?

The aristocrats of the ecology movement are the predators, while ordinary people like you and me are the prey. In order to Save the Planet, we will be culled the same way a pride of lions culls a herd of gazelles.

The elite 1001 club behind the eco-agenda

Prince Bernhard [of the Netherlands] created “The 1001: A Nature Trust” together with Prince Philip to finance the activities of the WWF [World Wildlife Foundation]. On board was Anton Rupert, an African tobacco billionaire of Dutch descent who was involved in the secret society “Afrikaner Broederbond”, which controlled South Africa and which had implemented apartheid.[16]

For a long time, public information about 1001 was almost completely unavailable, and all that was learned was that handpicked members had to pay a membership fee of $10,000.

Similar to the Bilderberg Group, the principle of confidentiality applies, and you can at least learn from a leaked internal report that the 1001 Club holds regular meetings in Windsor Castle, at the residence of the Spanish royal family, and in distant places like Nepal.

According to leaked membership lists, the 1001 Club includes people such as:

Maurice Strong: Member of the Privy Council in Canada (British Commonwealth), Fellowship of the Royal Society of Canada.

In the early 1970s he was Secretary General of the United Nations Conference on the Human Environment before becoming the first Director General of the United Nations Environment Program in 1972.

He is considered the inspiration for former US Vice President Al Gore, who released the eco-propaganda film An Inconvenient Truth.

Sir Max Aitken: Politician and Chairman of Beaverbrook Newspapers Ltd. His father was Max Aitken, First Lord Beaverbrook, member of the Privy Council, owner of the extremely influential Daily Express newspaper and sometime Minister of Information. His friend Winston Churchill made Max the Senior Minister for Aircraft Production during World War II.

Sir Eric Drake: Chairman of British Petroleum (BP)

Baron Conrad Black: He owns major newspapers and companies and has been involved in many scandals. At times he was on the Privy Council of Canada. His friend, US President Donald Trump, pardoned him in 2019.

King Juan Carlos of Spain: Juan Carlos, who came from the house of the Bourbons, is a member of the powerful eco-organization the Club of Rome.

He is the eldest son of Juan de Borbón y Battenberg, whose mother was Victoria Eugénie von Battenberg, from the Welfen lines Hessen-Darmstadt as well as Saxe-Coburg and Gotha (the same lines as Prince Philip and Queen Elizabeth).

Henry Ford II: From the highly controversial family of automakers. The Ford group goes back to the scientific network of the Royal Society or the Guelph nobility (see chapter in this book about the auto industry). His grandfather Henry Ford was one of the leading anti-Semites, supported the NSDAP and provided both the Nazis and the Soviets with technology that was essential to the war effort.

45,000 Deaths Within 72 Hours of Being Vaxed?

DISCLAIMER: I have no idea whether the number of vax deaths cited in the story below is accurate. First of all, the author (who is not a native English speaker) has misinterpreted the 45,000 deaths within 72 hours of “vaccination” as being for Hawaii alone, which is obviously absurd. The lawsuit was filed in Hawaii, but the figure is plainly meant to refer to the whole of the USA.

I spent some time looking around the web for other articles about the lawsuit. All the mainstream reports that mention it consisted of “fact-checking”, and (surprise!) concluded that the figure given was false. Those numerous fact-checks made my spider sense tingle, because we’ve all seen what the professional fact-checkers have identified as “fake news” in the last few years, and especially in the last nine months. And I know for certain that the adverse effects of the “vaccine” are being deliberately under-reported, as Mr. Green says — I’ve seen multiple independent reports attesting to that fact.

So make of this what you will.

Mass death in paradise: Hawaii records 45,000 COVID-19 vaccine deaths in 72 hours

A group of lawyers filed a giant class action lawsuit against the US state of Hawaii. One of the hired lawyers made a statement at a press conference and named the unbelievable number of 45,000 vaccine deaths in 72 hours as the reason for the lawsuit.

by Günther Strauss

Renowned Hawaiian lawyer Michael Green made a name for himself last week with a class action lawsuit against the US government’s vaccination campaign, to which he is demanding an immediate stop, and wants claims for damages. The lawsuit is now also joined by around 1,200 employees of the Hawaiian healthcare system — paramedics, nurses and doctors — who have been campaigning for weeks against the “indirect vaccine requirement” imposed by the governor and mayor of Honolulu. It is believed that thousands more citizens will join Green’s lawsuit in the US island state alone.

According to the plaintiffs, contrary to the official figures, there are now 45,000 fatalities in the USA alone as a result of the experimental Covid vaccinations. The US portal Rumble.com quotes Green as follows:

“The tests we saw by doctors across the country show that nearly 45,000 people who received these vaccinations were dead within 72 hours,” attorney Michael Green said at a news conference Thursday.

In addition, it is completely unnecessary to test asymptomatic people, as required by the Center for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) — because they could not spread the virus, either.

Still Waiting for That Curve to Flatten

In the following video Paul Weston discusses the mysterious fact that the number of Wuhan Coronavirus cases in the UK is much higher this year than it was during the same period last year, despite the fact that massive numbers of people have been “vaccinated” (with an experimental mRNA treatment that the government says has no adverse effects):

Want to get Rid of Your Criminals? Here’s How.

Many thanks to Hellequin GB for translating this article from the Austrian tabloid Exxpress:

“Cannot be integrated”: Gambia refuses to take back migrants

The government of the West African mini-state Gambia is not even considering taking back its own citizens in the course of repatriations — the argument: this would lead to “social unrest”.

Although 6,000 of the 15,000 Gambians who are currently in Germany have long been required to leave the country due to a negative asylum decision, the deportations cannot be carried out. The reason: The Gambian government under President Barrow has not issued a landing permit for deportation pilots from Germany or other EU countries since 2019. The reason: The returnees are “unintegrable”; they would only bring turmoil and unrest to the small West African country.

When thousands of Gambians return, “social unrest” can be expected: “We are trying to consolidate peace, stability and democracy in our country,” said a spokesman for the Gambian government.

Criminals sending money home

In African countries, as in Europe, migration is a policy. Barrow, the incumbent President of the Gambia, has repeatedly announced through spokesmen and the media that he is not interested in taking back Gambian emigrants. The reason: Large parts of the three million Gambian citizens do not want to see the young men back in their country. It seems that the departure of many young men for Germany is seen as a discharge of crime and violence from their home country.

The argument of crime is not enough, however, because: The money sent from Germany makes a significant contribution to the gross domestic product — more than a fifth, exactly 21 percent, comes from the diaspora. Anyone who is deported to Gambia no longer receives any social benefits from Europe. “Many livelihoods depend on money transfers from Europe,” said an activist from an aid organization, Julian Staiger.

Social ostracism for returnees

As Die Welt reports, for example, a 25-year-old Gambian who returned voluntarily was excluded from his family and ostracized. He had saved some money through German welfare and benefits and was fulfilling his dream of having his own farm in his home country. But this displeased his wife, and she left him. “She still thinks that I was deported from Germany and came back empty-handed,” complained the Gambian.

Landing bans could have precedent effect

The fear among German and Austrian authorities that these landing bans could also become a growing trend in other African countries. It remains to be seen whether these deportation stops have a precedent effect. 85 percent of the Gambians who applied for asylum in Germany last year received a negative decision. But nobody has been deported since 2019.

A New Cabinet? Not Bloody Likely.

It turns out that the débacle in Afghanistan has caused casualties in the interim Dutch cabinet. Our Dutch correspondent H. Numan has the report.

A new cabinet? Not bloody likely.

by H. Numan

At the beginning of March the Dutch went to vote. That’s a cool six months ago. A new cabinet coming soon? No, that will take a while. A very long while. Yesterday the Dutch vice-premier and minister for foreign affairs, Sigrid Al Qaq, was forced to resign. Again, as the current cabinet is demissionary. It had already resigned. She was the first Dutch victim of the US surrender in Afghanistan.

Both the (demissionary) ministers of defense, Ank Bijleveld, and for foreign affairs, Sigrid Al Qaq, had to explain themselves in parliament about Afghanistan. Before the surrender parliament had asked both to take measures for proper evacuation, which they hadn’t followed up. Parliament didn’t like the answers, and approved a motion of censure. Ank Bijleveld refused to resign, but Sigrid Al Qaq did. A motion of censure is not a motion of no confidence. In the first case, a minister can resign. In the second case, a minister must resign. It took a while to get some sense into Mrs. Bijleveld, but after 24 hours she finally resigned as well.

That makes the already very difficult cabinet negotiations next to impossible. Why? The voters voted for the impossible. Let’s have a quick look at the results: the VVD won (= didn’t loose a lot) with 34 seats. Runner-up was D66, with Sigrid Kaag — Al Qaq, they got 24 seats. Next was the PVV with 17 seats. Those are the big parties. CDA (Christian democrats) lost massively; they have 15 seats left over.

On the right side of the ballot a lot of new parties gained and lost seats. But none of them got over 7 seats. On the left side everybody lost. Some not so much, others a lot.

The powers-that-be don’t want a conservative government. In real life, that’s impossible anyway. To form a truly conservative cabinet you need no less that seven parties. That has never happened. The largest Dutch coalition had five parties, and collapsed within a couple of months.

The most logical solution would be a continuation of the present coalition, as it could be a workable cabinet. However… before the elections began, the Christian Union (Communist Calvinists) explicitly ruled out working together with D66. Sigrid Al Qaq retaliated likewise. So that option is a clear no-no.

The next option was a progressive cabinet. That might work, too. However, the lame (PvdA, our Labour party) firmly hold hands with the blind (GreenLeft, the communist party). They want to rule together or not at all. That demand is completely unacceptable for the VVD, for a very obvious reason. In such a cabinet they would become the minority party. Such a cabinet would effectively be a communist cabinet, with the VVD as a convenient scapegoat.

That leaves only two options: a minority cabinet or new elections. Calling for new elections has never happened. But it seems painfully clear this option is the only workable one. Why? Because the results of the elections are already old hat!

Since March a lot has happened. The Christian Democrats (CDA) committed suicide by ousting their enfant terrible, Pieter Omtzigt. They have 15 seats at the moment, but are polling at 9. Right now, that is. Because they are in the political elevator going down. Fast. I have no idea why they committed suicide. With Omtzigt as leader, they would have won the elections. Possibly enough to have him as the new prime minister. They would at least have recovered from their downward track. I wrote about this just after the elections.

However, they kicked him out. Or rather, they forced him out. He wasn’t ousted from the party, but they made him resign. Which he duly did. Now he’s running as an independent. We don’t know what he will do. If he sets up his own party, which is almost certain, that party is already polling at 20-26 seats. At least six of those seats will come from the CDA.

Psychogram for Chancellor Merkel

Germany is fast approaching the time when it won’t have Angela Merkel to kick around anymore. What will political life be like without Mutti?

Many thanks to Hellequin GB for translating this op-ed from Politically Incorrect:

Psychogram for Chancellor Merkel

by Mario Berthold

Chancellor Angela Merkel, before your era comes to an end in a few days, I would like to sweeten your farewell with a short psychogram, “Angela Merkel 2015”.

Do you still know why in 2015 you did so without authority — that is, “over the heads” of the other European member states — and loudly with audacity not only in Europe, but in particular in Germany, when you opened the doors wide for personae non gratae — oops… I meant the mentally ill, of course! — from the Islamic and African “hemisphere”?

No one has yet recognized the real motives for your behavior at the time, and if they did, they did not publicly denounce them. Because if that had become public, this matter would have been tantamount to a political earthquake and you would have had to vacate your beloved Chancellery immediately. Of course you will contradict my psychogram, and you must, if you didn’t want to lose face globally even in retrospect.

Do you have any idea what I’m getting at? No? I would be happy to help you on your way of enlightenment. You just have to read on!

First, let’s look back together to January 2009, when Barack Obama became the first African American president to move into the White House. He was the 44th President of the United States from 2009 to 2017. In addition, an American president is always referred to as the most powerful man in the world.

A few months later, in December 2009, Barack Obama received — for whatever reason — the Nobel Peace Prize, which is considered the most important international peace prize. Barack Obama himself was surprised by this honor, as he writes — according to Wikipedia — in his autobiography.

And now you come into play, Ms. Merkel, because it has been claimed that you are the most powerful woman in the world. And you felt extremely upset, as a socially incompetent woman. But something was still missing in your political career, the icing on the cake, so to speak. And that was the Nobel Peace Prize, which you absolutely wanted to have, no matter the cost. After all, Obama got it, too, for virtually nothing.

The situation in the Middle East came at just the right time for you, and you then misused your humanitarian aid as an argument for the Norwegian Nobel Committee. According to its founder, it should be awarded to the person who, for example, works most or best towards the fraternization of peoples etc. Multi-colourism seems to be a prerequisite here.

Booster Trouble

A nursing home in the German state of North Rhine-Westphalia is reporting a significant rate of serious side effects (including death) from booster shots of the experimental mRNA treatment against SARS-CoV-2.

Many thanks to Hellequin GB for translating this article from Politically Incorrect:

Oberhausen: One dead and two resuscitations after a third vaccination

According to the North Rhine Association of Statutory Health Insurance Physicians, there have been numerous serious complications in an old people’s home in Oberhausen after 90 booster vaccinations against Corona, including one death and two resuscitations.

“A total of nine out of 90 vaccinated people are seriously ill, most of them with cardiopulmonary problems,” writes Dr. Arno Theilmeier, Chairman of the Mönchengladbach Association of Statutory Health Insurance Physicians, in a circular on Tuesday to colleagues who are making the rounds on the Internet (see below).

This means that ten percent of those who have been vaccinated would be “seriously ill” and three percent would have died or been resuscitated. The incidents are worrying because “there is currently neither a drug approval by the EMA ( European Medical Association ) nor a STIKO recommendation for these booster vaccinations!”

“I would like to ask you to make a medical decision yourself whether you prefer to wait for approval or a recommendation, or whether the third vaccinations are now so urgent for your own patients that you have to do them without a recommendation,” says Theilmeier.

“It is irritating that the Association of Statutory Health Insurance Physicians is apparently not concerned about serious illnesses in ten percent or death or near-death in three percent of people vaccinated with the third dose, but rather focuses on the liability of doctors,” said the deputy group leader of the AfD [Alternative für Deutschland, Alternative for Germany], Beatrix von Storch. ”This document is the perfect task of any medical ethics. A policy that directly or indirectly forces people to expose themselves to such a risk is fundamentally wrong.”

The WDR [Westdeutscher Rundfunk, regional public broadcaster] reported on the issue on Tuesday — but without mentioning the dead person and the two resuscitations.

How Many Polacks Does it Take to Pull Out of the EU?

Donald Tusk is a much-despised (depending on who you talk to) former president of the European Council, and currently a Polish opposition leader. Mr. Tusk is evidently well-enough attuned to the political winds in his country to understand how close Poland is to saying “Sayonara” to the European Union.

Many thanks to Hellequin GB for translating this German-language article from PolitikStube:

Next exit candidate? Tusk does not rule out Poland leaving the EU

Brussels is dissatisfied with Poland, or rather with the judicial reform, so this week the EU Commission applied for a fine against Poland at the European Court of Justice (ECJ) in Luxembourg. “The judicial systems in the European Union must be independent and fair,” said Commission President Ursula von der Leyen. For years, the EU has been arguing with Poland about its judicial reform; it is about a disciplinary chamber created in 2018 at the country’s highest court. The EU sees this as a means for the Polish government to unduly influence the judiciary.

In the Federal Republic of Germany, Merkel brings the judges of the Federal Constitutional Court into line and invites them to a feudal dinner before the decision “Intervening in the elections of a federal state”. Numerous judges are also completely independent with their party books.

Does the ECJ even have jurisdiction over the constitutional courts of the EU member states, and does European law take precedence over national law? The unconditional precedence of European law, including over national constitutional law, is not included in any of the European treaties to this day; it was introduced by the ECJ itself in the early 1960s — even then, judge and jury at the same time in its own cause. And universally accepted, since European law at that time did not yet shape the life of every person, but essentially concerned details of customs policy. There is actually no constitution that could easily accept this right of priority.

The financial sanctions do not exactly trigger understanding in Poland, and so the exit from the EU is already brought into play. A possible Polexit would be another setback for the EU, but also a sign of common sense.

n-tv.de:

From the perspective of Brussels, Poland is one of the European Union’s problem children. Most recently, the EU Commission applied to the European Court of Justice (ECJ) for financial sanctions against the country, whose judicial reform, according to the ECJ, violates European law in parts.

Former EU Council President and Polish opposition leader Donald Tusk believes that his country’s exit from the EU can no longer be ruled out. Poland could no longer be an EU member “faster than it seems to anyone” if the current campaign slipped out of the hands of the national-conservative ruling party PiS, Tusk told TVN24. Two days ago, a high-ranking representative of the PiS questioned Poland’s further cooperation with the EU, thus triggering a nationwide debate.

Running With Scissors

Many thanks to Gary Fouse for translating this article from the Giornale di Rimini on the attack in Rimini:

Rimini: Knifeman on bus, the “trigger” was the check and the sanction

September 13, 2021

Tomorrow morning the 26-year-old Somali who unleashed panic on Saturday in Rimini will face a late interrogation due to a delay in finding an interpreter. First, on board a trolley bus, stabbing two female conductors who asked him to show a ticket. And then fleeing on the street and wounding three other people — among them a 6-year-old child, originally from Bangladesh — gravely but now out of danger.

From what has been obtained thus far from the investigators, Rimini prosecutor Elisabetta Melotti explained to the press this afternoon, with Police Chief Francesco De Cicco at her side, “Based on previous behavior in reference to miscellaneous information from the police, as to the results of the search and subsequent behavior, no elements of any kind have emerged.”

What is certain is that from 2015 the man, traveling around Europe, requesting asylum in five different nations, Germany, Sweden, Denmark, Austria, and Switzerland, eventually arriving in Italy on August 9, was in possession of five knives, three of which were kitchen knives found on the bus, and a pair of scissors, while the initial toxicological and alcohol tests of his urine have given no results.

Now the results of blood tests are pending. The attacker, moreover, during a psychiatric interview, declared that he has “a persecution experience” in his history, while on the morning of the episode, he had gone to the police headquarters to report an attack he suffered in the building in which he was a guest of the Red Cross of Riccione. “Verifications at this time seem negative.” In brief, “Some dynamics of the behavior remain to be reconstructed in detail and also the type of wounds,” argues the prosecutor, to try to also understand “the reasons for his behavior.”

Corona Fascism in Slovenia

Earlier today our Hungarian correspondent László sent this note about the Coronamadness in Slovenia:

Yahoo fails to mention what Hungarian state TV claims about Slovenia: if you are unjabbed, you are a de facto pariah in Slovenia, effective from today. If you have no “immunity card” or a negative Covid-test not older than 48 hours, you will be excluded from the following services: buses, trains, gas stations, banks, post offices, shopping malls, hairdressers, cosmeticians, restaurants, hotels, events, healthcare facilities, employment offices, social administration centres, public administration offices, GPs, nursing homes. You can still buy food without the Corona-papers.

Imagine: if this is true (please check it out with locals), you can travel only by bicycle because you cannot even refuel your car or motorbike, and you cannot get on a train or bus. You cannot enter a bank… You cannot buy clothes. If you are fired for being unjabbed you cannot get unemployment benefits. You cannot visit your sick relatives in the hospital. You get no healthcare! etc. Life becomes nearly impossible there without the Mark of the Beast.

As László suggested, I asked our Slovenian correspondent Andrej Turjaški to confirm the report. Here’s what he said:

In brief, it is true. But it also needs a longer clarification to understand it.

Disclaimer: I got the jab.

Just as the pandemic was starting in March 2020, the new coalition was suddenly formed in Slovenia. So a new government was formed. Instead of a left government, led by the demi-intelligent comedian Marjan Šarec, a center-right one was formed with a prime minister named Mr. Janez Janša, who is a staunch opponent of communism.

Even before the new government was formed there were protests against it fueled by NGOs and media. Media in Slovenia are 90% leftist, and they constantly attack everything the government does. So the left politicians and media started to undermine measures that were taken in order to prevent the spread of the coronavirus. Nothing that the government did was right. This, coupled with the fact that Slovenians don’t exactly abide by the laws and bylaws, meant that protective measures were mainly on paper but were not enforced. This all led to a dramatic increase of new Corona cases at the end of August and beginning of September, so the government indeed decided that enough is enough, and that percentage of vaccinated people has to increase. Currently the percentage of fully vaccinated population is just under 50%.
