Gates of Vienna News Feed 2/1/2022

As might be expected, most of tonight’s news once again comes from Canada, including reports on the smaller convoy that is blocking the border crossing between Alberta and Montana. The premier of Alberta has declared it illegal, and the RCMP is acting against it.

In other news, a 3-year-old boy in Cyprus has been denied urgently-needed heart surgery because his parents are unvaxed.

Biden Supreme Court Front-Runner Ketanji Brown Jackson Faces Scrutiny for Overturned Decisions

Ketanji Brown Jackson, one of the women reported to be on President Biden’s short list to replace Supreme Court Justice Stephen Breyer, is facing heightened scrutiny over a judicial record that includes high-profile rulings later overruled by higher courts.

Brown Jackson’s record was a focal point last year during her confirmation for a seat on the U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia, where she now sits. The 51-year-old judge is widely considered one of the favorites to replace Breyer.

“Judge Jackson’s record of reversals by the left-leaning D.C. Circuit is troubling for anyone concerned about the rule of law,” Judicial Crisis Network president Carrie Severino told Fox News Digital on Tuesday. “For example, in Make the Road New York v. Wolf, a D.C. Circuit panel composed of a majority of Democratic nominees concluded that Jackson had set aside a Trump administration rule where there was no legal basis to do so.”

“Cases like these suggest that Jackson might be willing in politically charged cases to ignore the law to deliver a particular policy outcome, and that’s not what we want to see from a Supreme Court justice,” she continued.

Denver Dropping Mask or Proof of Vaccine Requirement: Omicron Has ‘Run Out of Fuel’

Denver’s mask or proof of vaccine requirement to enter businesses is set to expire this week as health officials in Colorado say the omicron coronavirus variant has “run out of fuel within our community.”

The development comes as residents in the capital of Colorado have reached a 78% vaccination rate, Denver Mayor Michael Hancock announced Monday, adding that “this virus is something we are going to have to manage and learn to live with.”

“Following extensive discussions with our regional partners as well as current health advice and the downward trajectory of cases, positivity and hospitalizations, Denver will not be extending our public health order,” Hancock said during a press conference. “So beginning Friday, people will no longer be required under the public health order to wear masks or show proof of vaccination for entry into a business in Denver.”

Oklahoma Gov. Kevin Stitt, R., who banned critical race theory from state classrooms in May, said outlawing the controversial curriculum was a no-brainer.

Lockdowns Only Reduced COVID-19 Mortality by .2%, Study Finds: ‘Lockdowns Should be Rejected Out of Hand’

Lockdowns during the first COVID-19 wave in the spring of 2020 only reduced COVID-19 mortality by .2% in the U.S. and Europe, according to a Johns Hopkins University meta-analysis of several studies.

“While this meta-analysis concludes that lockdowns have had little to no public health effects, they have imposed enormous economic and social costs where they have been adopted,” the researchers wrote. “In consequence, lockdown policies are ill-founded and should be rejected as a pandemic policy instrument.”

WGHP-TV reported that the fire started Monday night at the Weaver Fertilizer Plant on North Cherry Street. City officials have confirmed small explosions at the plant.

Bright orange flames could be seen shooting into the sky along with thick plumes of smoke as lights from firetrucks and other first responder vehicles surrounded the fully engulfed building.

The Winston-Salem Police Department said in a news release that a portion of the road was closed while emergency crews, including about 90 firefighters and 150 others from different agencies, responded to the fire around 8:20 p.m. on Monday and it remains closed.

New Bipartisan Bill Aims to Break Up Google’s Ad Dominance

More bipartisan bills are coming up in the US Congress as some lawmakers are trying to find ways of legislatively containing the enormous power that the likes of Google and Facebook have over the internet — in this instance, over the super lucrative digital ad market.

It’s no secret that there, these two giants form what’s effectively a duopoly, while their financial might relies on it, drawn from a business model crafted to continuously harvest data and track users.

According to The Information, we are now weeks away from Senator Mike Lee, a Republican, introducing a bill that aims to separate various segments of the advertising business, preventing monopolistic behavior. The report, based on unnamed sources, also said that Lee has the backing of Senator Amy Klobuchar, a Democrat who chairs the antitrust committee, and several others across the aisle.

Two Officers Shot and Killed at Bridgewater College, Suspect in Custody

BRIDGEWATER, Va. (WHSV) — College officials report that there was an active shooter on the Bridgewater College campus. A Bridgewater College Campus Law Enforcement Officer and Campus Safety Officer were shot during this incident. A suspect is now in custody.

Updated: Trump Issues Statement on ‘2000 Mules’ Film That Alleges Election Fraud

Update 4:37 p.m.

Former president Donald Trump has issued a statement regarding the release of the trailer for 2000 Mules:

Highly respected Dinesh D’Souza, working together with Catherine Engelbrecht of True the Vote, just released a trailer to their new movie, “2,000 Mules,” that shows the world exactly how the 2020 Presidential Election was Rigged and Stolen. The movie exposes the lies of the Democrats, RINOs, and Fake News who say it was the “most secure election in history.” It was, perhaps, the least secure in history. The ballot box was stuffed, and stuffed like never before—and it’s all on video. Ballots were trafficked and sold in a massive operation in each Swing State. The evidence is so damning, what will the cowards who sat and did nothing about the stolen election say now? The way our votes were taken away is a disgrace to our Nation. It must be fixed.

User Who Downloaded a Skyrim Mod Could Lose Internet Access Unless Court Rules on the Side of Common Sense

More and more people argue that internet access is nowadays a basic utility, and even a human right — but that’s not the sentiment shared by a growing number of US Internet Service Providers (ISPs) who are habitually looking to protect their own interests above any other consideration.

To their mind, it must be particularly easy to justify cutting off a customer when their transgression has to do with copyright infringement — even without having rock solid proof that the infringement has in fact occurred.

But the very fact the option to take away people’s internet connection has been in the DMCA for several decades, yet was until recently very rarely enforced, speaks to the radical, and controversial nature of such a policy.

Austrian Constitutional Court Demands Real COVID Data From Government

On Wednesday, the Austrian Constitutional Court sent the Ministry of Health a list of questions about the pandemic that the official media and their henchmen have considered taboo.

The Constitutional Court sent Austrian Health Minister Wolfgang Mückstein some questions about the alleged “burden on the health system”. The background is an ordinance review procedure regarding the Corona measures taken by the government in Vienna. The catalog of questions can only be described as explosive due to the political narrative that has been cultivated in the Alpine republic.

The court wanted to know if the figures for deaths and hospitalizations during the pandemic cover all infected people. The question points to the typical manipulation of the data confounding the dead and hospitalized “with Covid” or “from Covid” that has also been used in Austria. “If so, why was this counting method chosen?” the judges demanded.

In addition, the court wanted a breakdown of Covid deaths and hospitalizations, specified by age. Was Covid the cause of the hospitalizations? Had they unnecessarily hospitalized healthy people, due to a positive test exclusively?

Another set of questions was devoted to the effectiveness of wearing the so-called protective masks. Against the background of the spreading Omicron variant, Austria tightened restrictions at the beginning of January. These now also provide for wearing an FFP2 mask outdoors if the minimum distance, which has long been mandatory, cannot be maintained.

Europe Seeks Alternative Gas Supply Routes to Reduce Reliance on Russia

At a time of growing tensions around Ukraine, the European Union is struggling to secure alternative sources in the case of a gas outage from Russia. Azerbaijan, among other countries, offers help and could partially supply gas and oil.

“If there is an urgent need as we saw in Turkey, some volumes, of course, would be made available,” Elin Suleimanov, Azerbaijan’s ambassador to the U.K. told Bloomberg on Friday.

The diplomat referred in his statement to a ten-day-old shortage of Iranian supplies to Turkey, which was caused by a technical defect.

Exclusive — Boris Saying He ‘Got Brexit Done’ is ‘A Joke’ To Northern Irish: DUP MP

Boris Johnson has been scorned by a senior Northern Irish politician for boasting of a so-called Freedoms Bill on the two-year anniversary of Brexit, with Brexit never having really been executed in the British province.

While the Tory prime minister bragged about finally having “Got Brexit Done” two years ago — long after the people’s vote to Leave the European Union in 2016 — on social media, many in Northern Ireland believe the process is far from over, given the government agreed to leave their region subject to swathes of EU regulations and custom controls, enforced against the British mainland, as part of the Brexit deal.

Freedom Convoys Revving Up in the Netherlands for ‘Prelude to National Action’

Dozens of trucks and tractors kicked off a series of freedom convoys in Leeuwarden on Sunday morning. The Dutch action is a follow-up to the Freedom Convoy in Canada with tens of thousands of truckers protesting against Corona measures.

In Zeeland, the activists gathered in the parking lot of the ANWB near Kapelle. After consultation with the police, the procession, the ‘Freedom Convoy Zeeland’, left for a tour through the province.

A procession of truckers and motorists also travelled on the busy A59. The convoy departed from the carpool area at Maarheeze to pass through the province of Brabant. The participants fear that they will lose their freedom and the vaccine will be used as a means of coercion. They carried banners stating “We are not an experiment”.

In the Netherlands, It’s ‘Civilized’ To Empower Terrorists

How a jihadist entered the inner ranks of the Dutch ruling party.

by Bruce Bawer

Her name is Soumaya Sahla. Born in The Hague in 1983 to Moroccan immigrants (her father was the founder of a mosque in that city), she joined a jihadist terror organization, the Hofstad group, at a young age, and along with another member of the group, Noureddine el Fahtni, to whom she’d been married in an Islamic ceremony, acquired an Agram 2000 submachine gun, which they were reportedly planning to use, at the direction of the leaders of the Hofstad group, to kill various politicians. Among their intended victims were Geert Wilders, then a relatively new member of the Dutch lower house, the Tweede Kamer, who’d made a name for himself as a critic of the Islamization of the Netherlands, and the Somali-born Ayaan Hirsi Ali, who’d rejected her Muslim faith after 9/11 and been elected to the Tweede Kamer in 2002.

The year was 2005. The previous few years had been a busy time for assassination and assassination plots. On May 6, 2002, nine days before a general election from which he was expected to emerge as prime minister of the Netherlands, Pim Fortuyn had been murdered by an activist named Volkert van der Graaf who was appalled by his criticisms of Islam. In the summer of 2004, Sahla’s husband, Fahtni, had been arrested in Portugal on suspicion of planning to kill that country’s then prime minister, José Manuel Durão Barroso, but there had not been sufficient evidence to hold him. A few months later, on the morning of November 2, 2004, a fellow member of the Hofstad group, Mohammed Bouyeri, had slaughtered the celebrated writer and filmmaker Theo van Gogh — perhaps the Netherlands’ most prominent critic of Islam — on a busy street in Amsterdam.

Sahla and Fahtni’s plans, however, did not prove as successful as Bouyeri’s. On June 22, 2005, they were both arrested by Amsterdam police.

Fahtni ended up serving six months. Sahla spent nine years in and out of court. First, she was convicted by a Rotterdam court of illegally possessing weapons and of membership in a terrorist organization with the intent to commit murder. Later, the Court of Appeal in The Hague found her guilty, in addition, of planning to murder Wilders and others. In 2011, however, the Supreme Court annulled that ruling and transferred the case to the Amsterdam Court of Appeal, which in 2014 found Sahla guilty of membership in a terrorist organization and possession of firearms but not of intention to kill anybody. Although sentenced to three years, she didn’t have to spend any time in prison because of the time she’d already served in detention.

During that long trial period, Sahla had studied political science, African Studies, and Islamic theology. She’d also, curiously enough, become the protegée of Frits Bolkestein, a legendary figure in the center-right VVD (People’s Party for Freedom and Democracy). As the newspaper Het Parool put it the other day, Bolkestein “led her into the party” in 2011 — that is, while her case was still under adjudication — “unseen and without causing a fuss.” It’s been established that Bolkestein knew about her history. So did other VVD leaders. Not one of them, apparently, considered it a reason not to give her a responsible party position. Sahla began her career in the VVD as head of its deradicalization and terror group; as of the beginning of this year, she’d risen in the party ranks to become — simultaneously — head of the VVD’s security and justice division, chair of a party advisory committee on deradicalization and terror, and “right-hand” woman to Bolkestein.

It’s worth noting that the current head of the VVD, Mark Rutte, is also prime minister of the Netherlands, a position he has held since 2010…

Julian Assange: MPs Push for WikiLeaks Founder to be Granted Political Asylum in France

Four French MPs are pushing for Julian Assange to be offered asylum in France amid the WikiLeaks founder’s ongoing fight against extradition from the UK to the US.

Jennifer De Temmerman, Jean Lassalle, Cedric Villani and Francois Ruffin are due to speak at a press conference in Paris on 1 February where they will explain why Assange — currently in prison in the UK — should be given sanctuary in France.

Assange’s defence team announced in February 2020 that it would be seeking asylum for him in France, ahead of the hearing in the UK on whether the 50-year-old should be extradited to the US for trial.

New Leader of Germany’s Greens Said Parts of Sharia Law Are Compatible With Country’s Constitution

It has been announced that Omid Nouripour will lead the Greens together with Ricarda Lang, but the male portion of the male-female leadership duo is being singled out for comments he made in the past.

The Muslim Nouripour seems to have a special connection to the Sharia, with him saying in 2017 that parts of it should be integrated into Germany’s basic law. The former Muslim civil rights activist Ali Utlu pointed out his speech on Twitter, writing: “The color of this party is the same as that of Islam. Green. Will homosexuals eventually be killed and have their limbs cut off? Resist this from the beginning!”

UK: Exclusive — Fishermen Slam Boris for Saying He ‘Got Brexit Done’ Despite Being ‘Sold Out’

British fishermen have reacted with fury to Boris Johnson praising himself for having “Got Brexit Done” on the two-year anniversary of Britain’s belated break with the European Union, reminding Breitbart News of how they were “sold out”.

Britain’s fishing industry was infamously sacrificed by Prime Minister Edward ‘Ted’ Heath during negotiations to join the European Economic Community (EEC), as the EU then was, in the 1970s, with the Tory leader agreeing that European fishing stocks would be shared out by Brussels as a so-called “common resource” after Britain’s entry.

Russian Orthodox Archbishop Blames U.S. For Stoking Fears of Ukraine War

George Soros Expresses Hope for Regime Change in Hungary and China

Billionaire U.S. oligarch George Soros has given a useful insight into his own thinking and plans during a Hoover Institution address this week, in which he outlines what he thinks are the greatest threats to his plans for a global open society. In this, the American businessman, who magnanimously calls himself a “political philanthropist,” points his finger firmly at China as the number one enemy. It is worth pausing at some of Soros’ remarks in order to understand the thinking of one of the most influential players in U.S. and European politics.

His self-description as a “political philanthropist” is a staggering contradiction in words that in a way characterizes his entire analysis of our current historical landscape. Pairing the concept of philanthropy, that is best described as selfless giving stemming from empathy and humanistic values with politics is a hypocrisy that is at the core of Soros’ quest for global influence, and one that runs through his entire Hoover Institution address.

Scientists Speak Out on Being Silenced When Raising Concerns About COVID Lab Leak Theory

Some scientists have begun speaking out about efforts to silence researchers who raised concerns about the possibility that COVID-19 could have originated in a Chinese lab.

“It shot from every direction from people who we now know were actually thinking exactly the same thing but have chosen to say the opposite, which is extraordinary,” Australian Dr. Nikolai Petrovsky, a Flinders University Medicine professor, told Fox News of the backlash he received for voicing concerns that the pandemic may have originated in a lab.

Petrovsky was not alone, according to reporting from Fox News’ Benjamin Hall, who spoke with scientists from Israel, the U.S., Australia, Germany, the U.K., Australia and Germany. The scientists told Fox News that they received backlash and resistance to getting their work published, even from those who quietly believed in the possibility of the “lab-leak theory.”

Unvaxxed Parents in Western Australia Banned From Visiting Sick Children in Hospital

Unvaccinated parents in Western Australia will not be able to visit their own sick children in hospital, with news anchors discussing the rule celebrating it as an excellent way of forcing the unvaxxed to ‘change their philosophy’.

From yesterday onwards, parents who haven’t received at least two doses of the vaccine will be barred from visiting their own kids, unless on compassionate ‘end of life’ grounds.

In other words, their child has to literally be on its deathbed for unvaxxed parents to be allowed into hospitals in Western Australia.

Nearly 2,700 illegal aliens arrived in the Canary Islands during the first four weeks of January, prompting Spanish media to warn the busy migration route has been ‘reactivated.’

Between 2020 and 2021, more than 45,000 migrants reached the archipelago off the coast of Morocco, often with the assistance of Spanish authorities or non-governmental organizations.

Michigan High School Student Suspended for Privately Discussing Religion, Sues the School

Students talking about their Christian beliefs with their friends might make other students “feel unsafe,” according to Plainwell High School in Michigan.

Some of the things he discussed were the love God has for sinners, Stout’s love for his friends, and, here is where the “problems” began, Stout said he believed homosexuality is a sin and… drum roll… there are only two genders!

  1. Talking about Internet censorship,
    I wanted to e-mail a couple of books with Shaw cable and all the e-mails containing key words, like Death of a Nation, Suicide of a Superpower and such were outright rejected.
    Wonder why?

  2. Hey Yanky..Do you know your cousins from Poland ?https://twitter.com/i/status/1488881636288696320

    ..”During World War I, occupying German troops killed 600 of the European bison in the Poland Białowieża Forest for sport, meat, hides and horns. A German scientist informed army officers that the European bison were facing imminent extinction, but at the very end of the war, retreating German soldiers shot all but nine animals. The last wild European bison in Poland was killed in 1921. The last wild European bison in the world was killed by poachers in 1927 in the western Caucasus. By that year, fewer than 50 remained, all held by zoos.”..

    • For folks worried about the fate of the wisent, it improved later. There are many now living in the wild, including many thriving herds in the Chernobyl area.

      By the way, the Nazis were quite interested in their survival, and took good care of the Bialowieza Forest. So I have heard.

    • Mathooey, Ole Goring bought a couple hundred bison from America and as far as I know are ranging as far as Russia since the Russians let them loose from Goring’s wildlife preserves. You might want to get Poland to get some bison from America and expand your own herds. They are excellent for meat.

      • I do not know why Baron let you spreed all of this falsehood , lies and deceptive info?
        Baron Anglo-Saxon double standard integrity ? or Ubermansch race associations ?

  3. “The Lamentation of Christ” by Lucas Cranach the Elder (1472-1553), stolen during WWII has been officially returned to the National Museum in Wrocław, Poland…from ???…Sweden National Museum :-))..who would taught so..
