Gates of Vienna News Feed 1/19/2022

With British Prime Minister Boris Johnson floundering due to the “Partygate” scandal, England has scrapped all vaccine passports, mask mandates, and work-from home requirements. Meanwhile, some Dutch museums are offering haircuts and manicures so that they may be classified as salons, which are permitted to remain open under the new lockdown rules. Also, after the recent Supreme Court decision against the OSHA mandates, Starbucks has withdrawn its requirement that employees be “vaccinated” against COVID-19.

In other news, the British government has been warned that 65,000 migrants are likely to cross the English Channel and land in the UK this year.

Alec Baldwin Sued for $25 Million by Family of Fallen US Marine

The family of a U.S. Marine killed in a suicide bombing in Afghanistan is suing Alec Baldwin for allegedly mislabeling his sister as a participant in the Capitol riot Jan. 6, 2021.

The 63-year-old actor is named in a lawsuit seeking $25 million and alleging defamation, invasion of privacy, negligence and intentional infliction of emotional distress, according to court documents obtained by Fox News Digital.

The lawsuit stems from a post that Baldwin shared on Instagram earlier this month after he gave $5,000 to the widow of a fallen soldier to help her with their newborn daughter. Marine Lance Cpl. Rylee J. McCollum was killed Aug. 26 in Kabul in a suicide bombing as he was processing refugees amid the United States’ controversial withdrawal from the country.

When the actor heard of McCollum’s story, he reached out to McCollumn’s sister, Roice, and gave her $5,000 to give to her brother’s widow, Jiennah Crayton. He later called the check a “tribute to a fallen soldier.” However, on Jan. 3, Roice shared a photo on Instagram that clearly gave Baldwin second thoughts about his tribute.

Democrats’ New Bill Targets “Surveillance Advertising”

If passed, the bill sponsored by Congress members Anna Eshoo and Jan Schakowsky and Senator Cory Booker — would usher in major changes to the way companies like Facebook and Google operate their digital ad business, which is the core of their financial might.

Several Democrat lawmakers believe there is a “good chance” the Department of Justice will act to prosecute Trump, knocking him out of the race before his campaign can even begin.

The move is being plotted despite there being no evidence that Trump (unlike certain federal agents) orchestrated or encouraged the January 6 raid on the Capitol.

Former Democratic Congresswoman Tulsi Gabbard called on the Federal Bureau of Investigation to stop “trying to be woke” by investigating parents at school board meetings and to instead focus on “actual threats” like the terrorist attack at a Texas synagogue over the weekend.

“Instead of trying to be ‘woke’/politically correct and targeting parents who care about what schools are teaching their children, the FBI/Dept of Homeland Security should focus on actual threats like the jihadist who terrorized the Texas synagogue,” Gabbard tweeted Wednesday after, Malik Faisal Akram, a Muslim with radical ties took a rabbi and several others hostage on Saturday while demanding the release of Aafia Siddiqui, a Pakistani national in prison for trying to kill U.S. troops in Afghanistan who was dubbed “Lady Al Qaeda.”

Moment Briana Kupfer’s Handcuffed ‘Killer’ Is Hauled in After 31-Year-Old Was Arrested at Pasadena Bus Stop: Career Criminal Was Out on $50,000 Bond for ‘Firing Weapon Into a Car’ When He Allegedly Stabbed to Death UCLA Student at La Furniture Store

Pasadena police have arrested the man suspected of stabbing a UCLA student to death at the LA furniture store she was working at last week.

Shawn Laval Smith, 31, was arrested in the California city a day after the Los Angeles Police Department named him as the top suspect in the random, unprovoked slaying of Brianna Kupfer.

He has not yet been booked, LAPD told DailyMail.com.

Pasadena PD confirmed that Smith was nabbed about 15 miles away from the scene of Kupfer’s slaying. They arrested him after a pedestrian called to report a man matching his description sitting on a park bench, Fox News reported.

He was arrested without incident at a bus stop near Fair Oaks and Colorado Boulevard about 11:50 am, Pasadena Lt. Sean Dawkins told DailyMail.com. It’s not clear if he was armed.

Prior to last weeks slaying, Smith was arrested and charged with violent crimes in at least three states. At the time of Kupfer’s muder, he was free on a $50,000 bond after allegedly firing a weapon toward an occupied vehicle in Charleston, South Carolina in November 2019.

300,000 March in Germany’s COVID-19 Protests, Four Times Higher Than News Media Estimates

On Monday evening, the number of participants in the Covid-19 protests in Germany was significantly higher than reported by many media outlets, according to research conducted by German newspaper Junge Freiheit. For example, the Tagesschau.de news outlet’s headline claimed there were thousands of people in the streets, but that is more than an understatement. At best, “thousands” would apply maybe to the counter-demonstrators.

According to research conducted by Junge Freiheit, more than 300,000 people took part in the demonstrations against the Covid-19 measures across Germany. However, the figures from the German state of Hesse are still missing. Numerous media outlets, above all the DPA news agency, wrote that around 70,000 people had taken part in the protests.

On Tuesday, Junge Freiheit asked the relevant police departments in all federal states and city-states about the number of protesters involved, which produced a far higher number than figures being presented by outlets like DPA.

By Lily Zhou of the Epoch Times

Restrictions including COVID-19 passes, mask mandates, and work-from-home requirements will be removed in England, UK Prime Minister Boris Johnson announced on Wednesday.

German Conservatives Look on With Envy After UK Prepares to Abolish BBC’s License Fee

Across the Western world, public broadcasting leans overwhelmingly left, and both Germany and Britain’s conservatives have been well aware of this thorny problem for years. In Britain, in particular, the country’s conservatives have long chafed over mandatory fees that are paid into a massive news media complex that many view as categorically opposed to their values.

Still, the BBC has a storied history and has produced a large catalog of content, documentaries, films, and television series, much of it beloved by the British public, including conservatives. The BBC’s name alone has made it difficult to pull the taxpayer plug on an organization with a firm place in Britain’s establishment.

Italy: Must Verify Support for Berlusconi President — Salvini

MPs, regional reps start voting new head of State next week

(ANSA) — ROME, JAN 17 — League leader Matteo Salvini said Monday that it will be necessary to verify whether ex-premier Silvio Berlusconi has the necessary support to become Italy’s next president before lawmakers from both houses of parliament and regional representatives start voting for a new head of State on January 24.

Salvini and Giorgio Meloni, the leader of the right-wing Brothers of Italy party (FdI) party, have said they are in favour of the Forza Italia leader and media billionaire succeeding President Sergio Mattarella, whose seven-year term is coming to an end.

But Berlusconi has not confirmed he will stand amid doubts whether he has enough votes among the ‘grand electors’.

The centre-left Democratic Party (PD) and the 5-Star Movement (M5S) have said they will not vote for Berlusconi to be president, saying the head of State should be a more impartial figure.

“It is necessary to verify if Berlusconi has the numbers before the start of voting next week,” Salvini said.

“When the voting starts, the League, as a responsible party of government, now and in the coming years, will make a proposal that I think can be convincing for many people, if not everyone”.

A majority of two-thirds of the ‘grand electors’ is needed to vote in a new president in the first three ballots, after which a simple majority is sufficient.

UK Prime Minister Boris Johnson’s leadership is under threat, as a number of MPs from the premier’s Conservative Party plot an overthrow.

Ever since news of a number of allegedly lockdown breaking gatherings emerged in the press, Johnson has since been — increasingly desperately — working to recover his party’s popularity as well as his own, deploying so-called “Operation Red Meat” policies to win back wavering voters.

However, another food-based term has entered British politics in recent days — the “Pork Pie Putsch”.

UK: Woman Who Tried Boris Johnson’s ‘I Didn’t Realise it Was a Party’ Defence Fined £250

Boris Johnson’s excuse that ‘nobody told me what we were doing was against the rules’ does not seem to work for everyone.

Just like the prime minister, Nancy Rush, 23, said she ‘didn’t realise’ a party was going to happen when she went to visit her friend in January last year — during the third lockdown.

When a neighbour tipped police off, officers busted them drinking in the front garden of her friend’s home in Eltham, south-east London.

Vanishing Hindu Temples, Shrines and Heritage Sites of Islamic Pakistan

Tilla Jogian is a hill in district Jhelum (Punjab) in Pakistan. It means the Hill of Jogis or Yogis. It is an ancient place sacred to Hindus for over two thousand years. It houses a big complex of several Hindu temples and built caves of Nath Monastic Order, which are now crumbling. It is told That Guru Nanak alo visted this place and meditated for long 40 days. Local persons tell that until 1947 it was a very busy place and Hindu monks (Nath Yogis) prayed here and looked after it and a large number of Hindu yatris regularly visited this place. The path up the hill was very good and safe, ladies often used horses or mules to travel. In short it was a bustling place. After the upheavals of 1947, Hindus left the area and now place is almost totally abandoned. The stone path is also crumbling. The trail starts from the village Bhet, on the northern side of the hill and goes winding up for almost 3 kilometers, ascending for nearly 500 meters. Now, the place is abandoned and the relics of it are turning almost untraceable under utter negligence of the Pakistan authorities, which could be preserved well as heritage site undoubtedly.

Pakistan’s vanishing Hindu Temples, Shrines and Heritage Sites.

by Upananda Brahmachari

It’s a tragic story that fanatic Muslim people performed their best role to erase Hindu signs from it map after India-Pakistan partition.

In that row the Islamist people destroyed and drove away the Hindu population, degenerated the Hindu culture and heritage and damaged maximum Hindu temples and signs to make a success of the mission of ‘Kafir Free Pakistan’ as a whole. This victimization has been affected upon all other minorities including Hindus and Sikhs.

It was not a new episode to persecute and perish the non-Muslim people in that region of Pakistan on just before and after 1947, according to Islamic history of barbarity every land of Islamic dominance had its own Jihadi tradition to eliminate non-Muslims by forceful conversion or culpable genocide.

Once Pakistan was a land of glorious Hindu and Buddhist antiquity and famed for its rich culture and tradition. Not only Taxila, many places in Gilgit Baltistan. Gandhara. Takht-i-Bahi, Mingora and Swat valley were famous for its Buddhist period. In the same way, research can establish the Hindu inheritance in the lands of Pakistan throughout the regions of Sindh, Punjab, Balochistan, Part of Pak occupied Kashmir, Part of Khyber Pakhtunkhwa and even in many places in Karachi and Islamabad. But those Hindu reminiscence merged in the oblivion due to planned operation of Islamic evacuation or in utter negligence to protect those. Though many these Hindu and Bhuddhist civilization got the blow of time and calamity, the Islamic attacks on Hindu and Buddhist people were rampant and abundant for which victim non-Muslim people and their practices were perished pitiably. Many declared heritage sites of Hindu and Buddhist roots are not maintained properly.

The condition of persecuted Hindus are so pathetic in present Pakistan, it is difficult to prepare a list of existing temples in Pakistan with their pictures, location and present situation prevailing there.

Many renowned Hindu sites as mentioned in the pages in the history, annals and gazetteers related to Pakistan have no trace at present and those are not listed in any current record.

As per rough estimation Pakistan had more than mentionable 2500 Hindu temples, shrines and pilgrimages before 1947 which has come down to less than 500 in present days many which luckily survived from the fanatic spate of attacks in 1992 and 1993 after the Babri structure demolition in India. Though the issue of Babri demolition in India was used to be a point of Islamist fury, Hindu religious establishments in Pakistan are always turned as subject to Jihadi attack with fabricated or mere communal causes…

China’s Olympics App is Mandatory for Heath Data, Has Privacy Flaws, And a Censorship Blacklist

The Beijing Winter Olympic Games, set to start on February 4, have an official and obligatory-to-use app — MY2022 — but security researchers found that it may not be safe due to poor encryption.

That means that users’ voice audio and file transfer data can be easily compromised, Citizen Lab said in a report presenting the findings of cross-country exposure analysis of MY2022.

Additionally, the group claims that the vulnerability also affects passport details, demographic and medical, and travel history, as well as server responses, that could allow a malicious actor “to display fake instructions to users.”

California Agrees to Stop Telling Children to Pray to Aztec Gods in Legal Settlement

California has settled litigation against its inclusion of prayers to Aztec and Yoruba gods that were approved in the state’s ethnic studies “model curriculum” this spring.

The lawsuit alleged that children were expected to participate in these prayers or “face the social implications of declining to participate,” a violation of their free exercise. The plaintiffs claim the California Constitution is stricter than the U.S. Constitution on separation of church and state.

The settlement requires California to remove the “In Lak Ech Affirmation” and “Ashe Affirmation” from the online ESMC and notify “all school districts, charter schools and county offices of education” that the prayers were deleted.

House of Lords Votes to Make Misogyny a Hate Crime in UK

The House of Lords delivered a blow to the UK government on Monday evening, backing making misogyny a hate crime despite the Prime Minister rejecting the proposal in October 2021.

With a significant majority of 242 to 185 votes, the House of Lords backed making misogyny a hate crime, returning the legislation to the House of Commons for MPs to consider the amendment.

If misogyny was made a hate crime, judges would be given the ability to hand down harsher punishments to those convicted of prejudice against women. It would also require police to make it known on criminal records if offences were motivated by the hatred of a person’s gender.

Major New Report Finds Online Censorship is Self-Defeating

A major new report by the esteemed Royal Society finds that online censorship is self-defeating and only causes individuals to distrust authorities even more.

Of course, the more cynical observer would assert that online censorship isn’t driven by the benevolent motivation to halt “dangerous misinformation.”

But by the very malevolent motivation to bury the truth.

  1. Freezing for Their Faith: Orthodox Christians Plunge Into Icy Waters for Epiphany Celebration Despite Sub-Zero Temperatures

    Yekaterinburg priest during the blessing of water remembered Winnie the Pooh and called him a “theologian”

    “Remember how the undeservedly forgotten “theologian” of the 20th century named Winnie the Pooh once said: “poetry is not what you go and find, like mushrooms on the road, poetry is what finds you, but you can only come and stand on this place where you can be found.”

    I don’t like Orthodox, but this one is pretty nice.

  2. UK: Tories vs Labour Latest Polls: Starmer on Course to Win Next Election as Johnson Flounders.
    God help us all if Starmer were to become Prime Minister-let it not be forgotten that Starmer also had a drinks party in his HQ whilst the UK was in lockdown-nothing heard of this by main stream Media apart from Daily Mail.
    The saying; better the devil you know than the devil you don’t-hang onto Johnson for the moment. The Labour Party are controlled by women and its unlikely in that case that Kier Starmer would ever become Prime Minister.

    • You silly, stupid, tea drinking, crumpet eating Brits actually think you can vote your way out of this mess? Actually electing that commie Starmer wouldn’t be a bad idea, he would drive Britain into the abyss faster.

      • If Starmer’s a commie, I’m a Dutchman. I’d likely vote for him, but never for his predecessor Corbyn, who was somewhat closer to being one; it seems such subtleties are lost on you.

        • Marky ole boy, let me inform you old son, that all those of any political party currently in once Great Britain are all traitors to their own, if you think labor will give you more free stuff so you vote for them, get doing what you have always done, vote for people who will kill you in the end. There is a reason the aristocracy in Britain developed weak chins and are spineless jelly fish these days. [insult redacted]
