Deutsche Bank Just Predicted ‘A Major Recession’ Weeks After Forecasting a ‘Mild’ One

Less than a month after saying the U.S. would experience a “mild” recession, Deutsche Bank has doubled down, saying the recession will be worse than it previously imagined.

The bank now expects “a major recession” in late 2023 to early 2024, according to a Tuesday note to investors titled “Why the coming recession will be worse than expected.” Although the bank predicts the economy could pick up in mid-2024, things will get worse before they get better, according to the report.

The bank had previously raised eyebrows in early April as the first major bank to predict a recession would hit the U.S. by late next year. The Tuesday report, written by a team led by Deutsche Bank’s chief economist and head of research David Folkerts-Landau, questions why other major banks maintain rosier projections for the U.S. economy.

Hungarian Central Bank Continues Interest Rate Hikes

The Hungarian Central Bank (MNB) on Tuesday again raised interest rates by a full percentage point to 5.4 percent as it continues to fight against inflation.

MNB Governor György Matolcsy spoke at the press conference following the interest rate hike to explain the decision. He said that in addition to the base rate, both sides of the interest rate corridor had been widened 100 basis points to 5.4 and 8.4 percent respectively.

“With this, the fight against inflation has reached an advanced stage, as the MNB was one of the first to start the rapid monetary tightening,” Matolcsy said.

Biden Youth Approval Hits Record Low

Joe Biden’s approval rating has dropped by 20 per cent in a single year, with his approval amongst 18-29-year-olds sinking to a new record low.

Polling from the Harvard Institute of Politics reveals that only 41 per cent of young Americans in that age bracket approve of Biden’s job performance.

Data released by Harvard CAPS and Harris also found that 63 per cent of voters “did not want Biden to run for a second term.”

Tracking by Morning Consult Political Intelligence also shows that Biden has a net disapproval rating in 40 out 50 states, including every single one of the key battleground states in the 2024 mid-terms.

Documentary Recounts Recent Baltimore Police Corruption

We Own This City, based on the book of the same name by Baltimore Sun reporter Justin Fenton, chronicles the real-life story of the Baltimore Police Department’s Gun Trace Task Force (GTTF), an elite unit that ruled the city like a roving gang of thieves. They wrongfully searched civilians and stole money from them, planted drugs and guns, and generally acted with brutal impunity, all with the protection of a badge. In 2017, all eight members of the GTTF were arrested on charges of federal racketeering and all were eventually sentenced to multiple years in prison.

We Own This City will inevitably draw comparisons to The Wire, given their shared Baltimore setting… We Own This City specifically focuses on policing, and suggests that it’s actively worsened since the early 2000s when The Wire was set.

We Own This City premieres on HBO in the US on 25 April.

Elon Musk Receives Multiple Death Threats After Purchasing Twitter

Following his purchase of Twitter, Elon Musk, who is no stranger to criticism, has faced dozens, if not hundreds of death threats and countless more wishing bad things to happen to him. And it’s all because he supports free speech.

As Rebel News reported earlier Wednesday, Musk has been accused of promoting misogyny, homophobia, and other “-isms” for his acquisition of the platform, which his critics in the mainstream media say is dangerous to democracy due to his advocacy for free speech.

As Twitter user Dataracer posted, here are some of the death threats Elon Musk is getting after buying Twitter.

Joe Rogan and Spotify See Substantive Growth Despite Repeated Attempts at Cancellation

Every leftist effort to cancel Joe Rogan has failed. Despite its constant drive to deplatform the popular podcaster from Spotify, the platform’s refusal to abide by cancel culture has resulted in a massive gain for both Rogan and Spotify.

Spotify, which released its new quarterly earnings report this week, revealed that the platform exceeded its expectations for all-new subscribers. Refusing to cave under pressure has certainly been a boon for the platform, which saw a 2 million increase in premium subscribers, up from 180 million the previous quarter, and 15% higher year on year.

According to CNN, the total revenue for Spotify was up 24% over last year.

Megan Fox Admits Hollywood A-Listers Drink Human Blood (Videos)

“It’s just a few drops, but yes we do consume each other’s blood on occasion for ritual purposes only,”

“It is used for a reason and it is controlled.”

Megan Fox is the latest Hollywood A-lister to speak out about Satanic blood rituals.

In 1999 an anonymous source secretly filmed Angelina Jolie, then aged 23, speaking to two close friends about Illuminati initiation rituals she had recently taken part in while attempting to establish herself in Hollywood…

She explains that she killed a snake as a sacrifice and was tattooed as part of the initiation ritual. It is well known that many Illuminati members get tattoos as part of the ceremony, as a way of sacrificing more blood to Satan.

In the secretly filmed video Angelina can be heard telling her friends that she has encouraged other celebrities to go through the initiation.

Michigan RINO Leadership Expel Popular MAGA Representative 3 Days After Establishment GOP Bloodbath

Late in the day on Tuesday, the MI House Republican Caucus, under the leadership of Speaker Jason Wentworth and House Caucus Chair Matt Hall, has expelled the popular conservative MI State Representative Matt Maddock (R)…

We spoke with Rep. Matt Maddock, who said he was “never given a reason” for the decision to expel him from the caucus…

On Saturday, Michigan establishment Republican lawmakers were humiliated when 2,000 GOP delegates voted at the state convention to choose Kristina Karamo as their secretary of state candidate and Constitutional Attorney Matt DePerno as their candidate for Attorney General to run in the general election. Both are grassroots candidates, and with a few exceptions, like Rep. Matt Maddock, they got no support from members of the GOP majority Republican House.

The majority of House and Senate Republicans in Michigan fought hard to convince delegates to support DePerno’s strongest opponent, Tom Leonard, for the AG spot. Leonard is a fellow establishment Republican who ran for AG in 2018 and lost to Dana Nessel, giving Michigan America’s most lawless attorney general.

Michigan GOP delegates, who’ve openly expressed their frustration with Republican leadership in Lansing for refusing to conduct a forensic audit of the 2020 election, rebuffed attempts by establishment Republicans, and overwhelming chose the Trump, and Meshawn Maddock endorsed candidates, leaving GOP leadership in Lansing with egg on their faces.

[ DePerno was the attorney who successfully won a case in Michigan that showed that 16 Dominion machines in one county were at fault for switching thousands of votes changing the outcome from Biden winning the county to Trump winning that county by a large margin. The court mandated a forensic study of the machines and accepted its results. This got little coverage except in alternate media as discussed here: https://www.thegatewaypundit.com/2020/12/fox-news-fbn-block-attorney-matthew-deperno-appearing-hannity-lou-dobbs-explosive-antrim-county-report-dominion-voting-machines/ ]

Perpetual race grifter Reid proclaimed that Musk “misses the old South Africa in the 80s. He wants that back,” adding “Elon Musk’s companies have a history of open racism.”

She also charged that Musk’s “idea of freedom means freedom to be a jerk and to be cruel and to have no one be able to stop you.”

Two High Court judges said the policy from March and April 2020 was unlawful because it failed to take into account the infection risk that non-symptomatic carriers of the virus posed to older or vulnerable people.

Joint Swedish and Finnish Application for NATO Membership

On Monday, the Finnish newspaper Iltalehti reported that the Swedish government had expressed a wish to Finland to submit simultaneous applications for NATO membership. The newspaper reported that it was now agreed between the countries to announce such an application during week 20, sometime between 16 and 22 May.

According to Swedish daily Expressen, Swedish government sources have confirmed the information, which is further supported by the fact that Aftonbladet reported that it had received information about concrete promises of military protection from the United States and Great Britain in a NATO application. Furthermore, the information on the dates coincides with the arrival of Finnish President Sauli Niinistö in Stockholm on 17-18 May.

Muslim Mothers and Children ‘Threw Stones Together’ During Violent Swedish Riots, Chief Prosecutor Claims

It was not only young men but also mothers and children who took part in the violent riots in Sweden on Easter weekend, said Eva Nemec Nordh, the chief prosecutor at Linköping’s Public Prosecutor’s Office,,

The Muslim riots took place in Skäggetorp in Linköping, where around 200 people participated — mainly young men but also burka-clad women and children. The rioters burned police vehicles and injured dozens of officers, some severely. They were protesting Danish far-right supporters organized by Stram Kurs who vowed to publicly burn a Quran.

Sweden has long suffered from disastrous immigration policies and Muslim migrants especially have been responsible for large increases in crime, a reality the establishment media has often sought to obfuscate.

Only Half of Czechs Perceive the Media as Free

Media freedom across Central Europe is deteriorating according to most inhabitants of the Visegrad Group, with just 38 percent of people considering the media to be independent.

Data published by the Median agency reveals the rising distrust in the freedom of the press across the four countries.

Within the group, Czechs are the most likely to reject state or owner intervention in the functioning of the media. At the same time, Czechs most often see their media as free.

Almost half of Czechs think that the media can do their job currently without government intervention and censorship. In contrast, a quarter of people do not consider the media free.

Shroud of Turin Dated by Modern WAXS Method

Italian scientist Liberato De Caro explained that he managed to discover the age of the Shroud of Turin using a technique called “Wide-Angle X-ray Scattering” (WAXS).

As reported by CBN News, the findings under the WAXS method contradict a 1988 carbon-14 study that determined that the Shroud was only 700 years old.

“Fabric samples are usually subject to all kinds of contamination, which cannot always be controlled and completely removed from the dated specimen,” De Caro explained to NCR.

“If the cleaning procedure of the sample is not thoroughly performed, carbon-14 dating is not reliable,” he continued. “This may have been the case in 1988, as confirmed by experimental evidence showing that when moving from the periphery towards the center of the sheet, along the longest side, there is a significant increase in carbon-14 (radiocarbon dating).”

According to Aleteia, De Caro argued that the WAXS method produces more accurate findings. He also noted that the technique has been used on different samples of ancient fabrics dating from 3000 BC to 2000 AD.

Following a comparison with the samples, De Caro found that the Shroud of Turin matched a piece of fabric dating back to the siege of Masada, Israel, in 55-74 AD.

Ukraine: No to Aid That Exceeds Defence Right — Conte

Draghi, Guerini must brief p’lmt on arms to Kyiv says M5S chief

(ANSA) — ROME, APR 26 — 5-Star Movement (M5S) leader Giuseppe Conte said Tuesday its national council had decided against Italy sending military aid to Ukraine that exceeded the legitimate right to self defence enshrined in the Charter of Human Rights.

The M5S has opposed Rome’s upping its military spending to 2% of GDP and sending more and more arms to Kyiv.

“The M5S opposes sending military and counter-offensive arms that exceed the perimeter of legitimate exercise of defence rights described in article 51 of the Charter of Human Rights”, said Conte.

The populist party also wants Premier Mario Draghi and Defence Minister Lorenzo Guerini to report to parliament on the issue, Conte added.

Illegal Immigrant Population Increased by One Million in Biden’s First Year in Office and Cost the Taxpayer an Extra $9.4billion, Conservative Group Research Reveals

The number of illegal immigrants living in the U.S. grew by one million during President Biden’s first year in office, according to research by a conservative group.

A study by Federation for American Immigration Reform (FAIR), which advocates for cracking down on immigration overall, found that the undocumented immigrant population in the U.S. grew from 14.5 million in 2020 to 15.5 million now and cost the American taxpayer an additional $9.4 billion.

FAIR roughly estimates that the U.S. now spends $143.1 billion on public services for undocumented migrants, including on public schools, migrant schools, English language proficiency, uncompensated hospital stays, Medicaid, law enforcement and other welfare programs.

Germany: Deutsche Bahn Must Offer Third Gender Option for Train Tickets, Court Rules

The Higher Regional Court in Frankfurt is forcing Deutsche Bahn to offer customers a third gender option when buying tickets.

The court, concurring with a lower court ruling, found that the company should not require people who do not identify as being either a man or a woman to choose between the two classic gender categories, according to NTV. Deutsche Bahn has six months to implement the new ruling, or it can appeal to the Constitutional Court, which is Germany’s highest court.

The decision came following a lawsuit filed by a woman who described herself as “non-binary.” The gender entry on her birth certificate read “unspecified” and the customer felt discriminated against when buying a BahnCard because she had to choose between male and female categories on the form.

Italy: Don’t Automatically Give Kids Father’s Name Says Top Court

Both parents’ name shd be given to children says Const Court

(ANSA) — ROME, APR 27 — Italy’s Constitutional Court ruled Wednesday that all norms that automatically attribute a father’s surname to his children are illegitimate.

The court said that both parents surnames should be given to their children.

The top court said the norm attributing the father’s name to his children “is discriminatory and injurious of the child’s identity”.

Children should be given both parents’ surnames in the order the parents agree on, the court said.

Or the parents may agree that their children should bear the surname of just one of them, the supreme court added.

Failing an agreement on the order of name attribution, the court said, a judge should decide.

    That’s still about five times the estimate of transsexual individuals in the population. Would be interesting to compare data with the US and a country like Japan, that’s modern, but not subjected to propaganda. Would expose the US system really well.

  2. Paludan’s new election rallies stopped – freedom of expression expert critical

    Published 28 April 2022 in Samnytt

    On Wednesday, it became clear that lawyer, party leader and free speech activist Rasmus Paludan will not be allowed to hold the town hall meetings on Valborg = April 30, that he applied for. This time, the police rejected the applications on the grounds of lack of time – they said they did not have the staff resources to process them. Freedom of expression expert Nils Funcke is critical.

    After thousands of Muslim extremists, assisted by gang criminals, took to the streets over the Easter weekend and staged violent Koran riots in six cities in which over a hundred police officers were injured and police vehicles were stolen and set on fire, the Social Democratic government and the party-affiliated police leadership have acted to stop further Koran burnings that risk inciting Muslim civil society to new riots.

    The police’s pretexts for now saying no to Rasmus Paludan vary. In several cases, they have referred to the previous disturbances and said that they cannot guarantee the safety of the organiser or the public. However, this argument has weak legal support.

    Police change refusal tactics
    With regard to the two applications submitted by Palaudan for demonstrations on Valborg on 30 April, the police are now changing their tactics in explaining why they are refusing. Several police districts have coordinated their efforts, saying that the applications were submitted too late and that the police do not have time to process the cases due to time constraints and insufficient staff resources.

    The current applications concern Trollhättan and Örebro, the latter in the immigrant-dominated, problem-ridden and “vulnerable” area of Vivalla, where Paludan was forced to cancel his authorised demonstration because of the immigrant violence over the Easter weekend. However, despite the fact that the date of a rally for which a permit had already been granted has been brought forward, it has now been refused.

    Recently, Paludan was also refused an application for a square meeting in Borås. The organiser has appealed against this decision to the Administrative Court.

    In his applications, Paludan has stated that he is a parliamentary candidate for the newly registered party Stram Kurs Sweden – sister party to the party he previously successfully ran in Denmark – and that the purpose of the meetings is to communicate the party’s policies, not just to burn a Koran.

    Criticised by freedom of expression expert
    But the police still say no. These are generally controversial decisions from a democratic point of view, but even more so in view of the fact that it is an election year. The police have been harshly criticised by high-profile freedom of expression expert Nils Funcke, who urges the police to reverse the no-decision and grant permission instead.

    Funcke is critical of the way the police have argued on the basis of what happened over the Easter weekend. This is not the way to do it, he says.

    – You can’t really argue like that. Every situation, every application for a demonstration permit must be examined on its own merits and not based on what has happened in the past.

    Politicians want to hide problems
    In several parts of the country, politicians have also put pressure on the police to deny permits because of the political sensitivity of religious and gang-related riots, which show both a failure of integration and a lack of resources in society to defend democracy against violence from these groups.

    It is also inconvenient for the government to deal with in an election year. The simple, urgent and symptom-based solution is to say no to Paludan’s demonstrations so that Muslim civil society is not triggered into new violence. But that’s not legally tenable, Funcke argues.

    What the police may do if they fear disorder at a certain place or time is to hold a dialogue with the organiser about changing the place and/or time. According to Funcke, categorically saying no is not in accordance with the law. Nor can you move an event to a place or time that is detrimental to the organiser – for example, midnight in the woods.

    – Freedom of demonstration must be allowed to express itself. The starting point is that if he applies again, he should get a yes, Funcke states in a comment to the state television.

    • Well, I admire Rasmus’ courage and commitment, and of course support his wish to make his point, but burning books you disagree with has unpleasant associations, from the Nazis’ literally doing so to the online censorship of conservative views we’re all familiar with.

      • Burning the devil’s book is a righteous act. Normally I would agree with you where book burnings are concerned, but we no longer live in normal times. Keep provoking the bloody savages so they act more and more to the point that people will get off their backsides and do something about it. You place your faith in government, I place my faith in people.

  4. Sometimes I check Facebook. Now it is difficult for me to do this, because Facebook is recognized as an extremist social platform in Russia. And so I have to do it through TOR.
    Sometimes I look at the page of a Russian Muslim woman, the ex-wife of a well-known Dagestan Muslim extremist and the mother of his children.

    Somehow she managed to escape from the FSB. From Bosnia, where she lived in poverty, she moved to Sweden.
    I wonder how? Surely someone helped her, because her ex-husband is wanted by Interpol.

    So Sweden denied her asylum. Oh, if you could only read what Muslims write in the comments. “How dare they! You must apply to the Strasbourg court and demand justice!”. “They have no right to send you to Russia – it’s inhumane!”

    At the same time, this woman published a post on Facebook against Rasmus Paludan.
    Swedes, do you need such a “refugee”?

    EU Commission: more legal routes for migrants to the EU

    Foreign 28 April 2022

    There will be more legal ways for migrants to come to Europe, the European Commission announced on Wednesday.

    The new policy aims, among other things, to prevent migrants from making a dangerous journey across the Mediterranean. At the same time, it is claimed to provide a solution to the serious shortcomings of the European labour market.

    The Commission’s proposal is politically sensitive as anti-immigration campaigners see it as an unwanted boost to migration. According to the Commission, the policy will allow Europe to bring in desired workers and make it easier to combat illegal migration.

    To promote legal migration routes, the EU is making funds available for humanitarian aid and other purposes. Member States also receive financial support to bring migrants in for study or work. Member States will be encouraged to allow citizens, communities and civil society organisations to sponsor migrants.

    Health care
    The European Commission will initially focus on labour migration in the health and ICT sectors. In the health sector in particular, the aim is to get people from outside Europe to work here for a longer period of time in order to alleviate labour market shortages. In the last quarter of last year, 2.6% of vacancies in the EU remained unfilled, the highest rate for several years.

    A pilot project involving migrants from some North African countries has been successful, according to Greek commissioner Margarítis Schinás. That’s why the commission has also committed to partnerships with Morocco, Tunisia and Egypt. The Commission also wants to create a “talent pool” for the millions of Ukrainian refugees expected to stay in the EU for a long time, where employers can then see who they might have use for.

    Easier to get a visa
    For less well-educated migrants, the EU offers language training in their home countries, says Swedish EU commissioner Ylva Johansson. But to prevent all skilled workers from leaving a country, legal migration plans must go hand in hand with development aid.

    It will also be made easier for migrants to apply for visas to the EU and the visa process will be digitised. At the moment, that procedure is still “difficult”, Johansson said. An applicant has to hand in their passport at an embassy or consulate, sometimes in another country, after which a paper visa is attached to the passport. Both the application and the visa itself will be digital in the future.

    • Sosseledare is tired of diversity: “Does not feel like I’m in Belgium”

      Published April 27, 2022 at 7:32 p.m.

      FOREIGN. Conner Rousseau, leader of the Flemish Social Democratic Party Vooruit, has stirred up a storm in Belgium after commenting on the Arabization of the country.
      Ahmed Laaouej.
      It is in an interview with the Belgian newspaper Humo that Conner Rousseau talks about the vulnerable Brussels district Molenbeek.

      – When I drive through Molenbeek, it does not feel like I am in Belgium, says the Social Democratic party leader.

      In the interview, Rousseau states that a large part of the inhabitants of Molenbeek were born in Belgium, but that they are still not assimilated and barely learn the language.

      – Due to the shortage of teachers, there are people in Brussels who teach Arabic because they do not speak French. This is unacceptable, he says.

      The outbursts have hit like a bomb within the Belgian establishment and aroused hot feelings.

      Vooruit’s French-speaking counterpart is the Socialist Party (PS) and its group leader in parliament, Ahmed Laaouej, strongly condemns Conner Rousseau. According to Laaouej, Rousseau’s words are “unacceptable, stigmatizing and xenophobic”.

      – Brussels is a cosmopolitan region with districts that have a large population diversity. They deserve better than this contempt worthy of a pub discussion. Sorry and unacceptable, says Ahmed Laaouej according to Remix.

      Molenbeek’s mayor Catherine Moureaux describes Rousseau’s attitude towards the municipality as “caricatured” and “contemptuous”. Several federal left-wing ministers also condemn his statements – and even some members of his own party have joined the critics’ chorus. However, the Flemish nationalist right defends only 29-year-old Conner Rousseau, writes Remix.
