Hungarian Inflation Hits 24-Year Record in June

Annual inflation in Hungary was 11.7 percent in June, a level not seen in the country since 1998, the Central Statistical Office (KSH) announced on Friday.

The rise in the cost of living is steadily moving towards the 14-16 percent level predicted by the Hungarian Central Bank (MNB) for September.

Seasonally adjusted core inflation was even higher at 13.8 percent in June. This does not include products with rapidly changing prices such as fuel, energy, and medicine.

According to KSH, in the last 12 months, food and durable consumer goods rose in price the most, while the price increase for household energy and clothing was less pronounced.

Food prices rose by 22.1 percent compared to last June, while alcoholic beverages and tobacco products cost an average of 7.3 percent more. Durable consumer goods cost 12.4 percent more, while the price of services increased by 5.6 percent, within which taxi fares showed the highest increase of 26.1 percent.

Illinois Economy, Jobs Suffer Under Potential Presidential Candidate J.B. Pritzker

By Ted Dabrowski of Wirepoints

With rumors heating up about Gov. J.B. Pritzker’s potential run for president and the federal governments’ recent release of GDP numbers for the first quarter of 2022, it’s a good moment to review the governor’s economic performance since he took office in 2019. Polls today consistently show economic issues as the biggest concern for Americans.

Illinois’ growth and jobs numbers aren’t pretty for Gov. Pritzker and they’re dwarfed by the much better numbers coming from Illinois’ neighboring states.

14-Year-Old Accused of Shooting 12-Year-Old With Gun Pulled From Under Go-Kart Seat in Detroit

Child treated for non-life-threatening injuries, officials say

DETROIT — A 14-year-old boy is accused of shooting a 12-year-old boy with a gun he pulled from underneath a go-kart seat in Detroit, police said.

Officials said the two boys, both from Detroit, were playing with a go-kart around 2:25 p.m. Sunday (July 10) in the area of Alcoy Avenue and Fairmount Drive on the city’s east side.

The 14-year-old was pushing the 12-year-old in the go-kart when he tried to retrieve a handgun from underneath the seat, according to authorities.

While he was grabbing the gun, the teenager fired it once, striking the other boy in the calf, police said.

The 12-year-old was taken to a nearby hospital for treatment of non-life-threatening injuries, according to officials.

On Monday, the 14-year-old was charged as a juvenile with one count of carrying a concealed weapon and one count of careless discharge of a firearm causing injury.

AG Merrick Garland Shows ‘Little Urgency’ in Protecting SCOTUS Justices: Ted Cruz

Sen. Ted Cruz has asked for Attorney General Merrick Garland to come to Capitol Hill and explain why the Justice Department isn’t enforcing a federal law banning protests outside the homes of Supreme Court justices.

In a July 7 letter to Senate Judiciary Committee Chairman Dick Durbin (D-Ill.), Cruz wrote that Garland “has shown little urgency to protect Supreme Court Justices despite calls from the Supreme Court Marshal and multiple governors to do so.”

“[D]espite clear evidence that federal law was violated by mobs of protestors at the Justices’ homes, the head of the Department of Justice, and chief law enforcement officer of the United States, flatly refused to enforce federal law,” he added.

A preliminary hearing was held Monday in the Lincoln Hall of Justice where a judge set a $10,000 cash bond for the youth, the Wayne County prosecutor’s office said.

The boy later was arrested and is charged with manslaughter—aimed with intent but without malice. He also is charged with using a firearm during a felony…

Explosive Device Targeting New York Mosque is Being Treated as a Hate Crime

After the incident, hundreds of people showed up outside the mosque in solidarity with the community to show there is “no hate”

ust days before the Islamic celebration of Eid al-Adha, two people threw something resembling a molotov cocktail at a large metallic crescent moon symbol outside the Fatima al-Zahra Mosque in Long Island, New York. Local authorities are now treating the incident as a hate crime.

On 3 July, the mosque’s imam, Ahmed Ibrahim, heard a big explosion and then saw flames. A neighbour came running to help put out the fire.

No one was injured but it was later determined that an ignited device was deliberately thrown at either the general vicinity of the mosque or specifically at the crescent moon symbol.

“They did not achieve anything but they expressed hate. Why?” Ibrahim said at a press conference days after the incident.

Asiya, who only wanted to use her first name, is a resident in Ronkonkoma, the hamlet where the incident took place. She said that firebombing has left the community on edge…

Up to 500,000 Dead From a Headache Pill: The Pharmaceutical Mafia and Merck’s Drug of Death

In an interview with Maria Zeee, Robert F. Kennedy, Jr. harped on the pharmaceutical industry’s long history of prioritizing profits over people.

“Big Pharma is as corrupt as the mafia. Since 1980, the pharmaceutical industry has paid $86 billion in criminal penalties for lying to regulators, defrauding government officials and doctors, falsifying the science, lying to the public, for killing hundreds of thousands of Americans with products that they knew were lethal.

“For example, Vioxx, which was Merck’s blockbuster drug until 2006, killed between 100,000 and 500,000 Americans. It was a drug that Merck marketed as a headache pill, knowing that it caused heart attacks, fatal heart attacks. They knew it from their clinical trials, and they hid that fact from the public.

“Most people who took that drug, if they knew that it could kill them, would have said,’ You know what. I think I’ll take an aspirin.’ But they weren’t given that choice because Merck lied to them and knowingly lied to them.”

Free Speech a ‘Rallying Call for the Far-Right,’ Says Canadian ‘Expert’

An “expert on hate crime and right-wing extremism” said that free speech is a “rallying call for the far-right” that has been “amplified by the emergence of the alt-right” in Canada.

The comment came after the findings of a survey that polled Canadians on their beliefs around free speech. The survey, which was conducted nationally via phone calls by the Canadian Hub for Applied and Social Research at the University of Saskatchewan, found that there was a strong corelation between a person’s political leanings and their views on the state of free speech. Those who lean right had a higher likelihood of believing there should be no limits on speech, (which would make it “free”) including the right to express opinions considered offensive.

After Swedish Study Reveals Pfizer Vaccine Changes Human DNA, Doctors Discuss Liability and Lawsuits

In a roundtable discussion featuring the likes of doctors Peter McCullough and Richard Bartlett, a study coming out of Sweden was discussed that revealed the COVID shots from Pfizer have the propensity to modify human DNA.

The study in question was conducted by the Department of Clinical Sciences at Lund University, where the authors “investigated the effect of BNT162b2 on the human liver cell line Huh7 in vitro.”

According to the results of the study, during which the tests were run in a petri dish and not inside of a living human body, the DNA contained within the human liver could change within hours of exposure to the Pfizer jab.

“Our results indicate a fast up-take of BNT162b2 into human liver cell line Huh7, leading to changes in LINE-1 expression and distribution. We also show that BNT162b2 mRNA is reverse transcribed intracellularly into DNA in as fast as six h upon BNT162b2 exposure.”

BBC Claimed 8% of the UK Unvaccinated (It’s 30%)

BBC’s Prof Hannah Fry claims 8% of the UK’s population is unvaccinated. But this is a lie. UK Health Security Agency’s (“UKHSA’s”) latest report shows that almost 30% of the population, of all ages, has not had even one dose of Covid injections, with 20% of the population over the age of 18 being vaccine free.

Why is this important? Because accurate estimates of the proportion of people who are unvaccinated is critical in determining both vaccine efficacy and vaccine safety. BBC’s lie clearly has a major impact in exaggerating claims about “vaccine” safety and efficacy.

“Within 2 hours of me posting this article and tweeting it, the BBC updated the article (see below) so it’s just as well I grabbed a screenshot of the original,” wrote Professor Norman Fenton.

Brussels: Capital of Europe or Eurabia?

While Lieven Verstraete, an acclaimed Belgian journalist who hosts the program, “De Zevende Dag” (“The Seventh Day”), was recently interviewing two members of the Green Party, he raised the issue of immigration and called Brussels “the perfect example of a city whose neighborhoods are conquered one by one by newcomers”.

Newcomers? Conquered?

“How?” replied Nadia Naji, a politician of Molenbeek’s Green party.

“Well,” Verstraete, visibly uncomfortable, tried to explain, “more and more people with immigrant origins come to live there and claim their place. Do you feel Belgian in Molenbeek?”

A few hours after the broadcast, he apologized.

“In twenty years”, the French newspaper Le Figaro predicted about Brussels, “the European capital will be Muslim”.

Documents Reveal Dutch Government is Working With World Economic Forum to Implement ‘The Great Reset’

‘The Netherlands is the proud host of the Global Co-ordination Secretariat (“GCS”) for the worldwide network of Food Innovation Hubs’, wrote Foodvalley; the leading European innovation hub in this network.

“It was great to have support for the initiative by Foodvalley members Mengniu Dairy, DSM and Unilever this week at the online WEF Davos panel session on the transformation of food systems,” Dutch Prime Minister Mark Rutte said on 26 January.

Foodvalley’s article continued: “More than 20 organisations are already working together as Food Innovation Hubs in Colombia, India, Europe, South-East Asia and several countries in Africa. The Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation has provided multi-year support for the development of a Food Innovation Hub in India and several public and private sector partners have committed in-kind resources to support the development of hubs in various regions.”

What Foodvalley did not mention is that the Netherlands was host to the GCS because the Dutch government was planning to fund it.

Foodvalley also avoids pointing out that the initiative has “special attention for development and implementation of key enabling technologies e.g., Digitalisation…

The Dutch government wrote a letter to WEF “on behalf of the Dutch Ministers of Economic Affairs and Climate Policy and Agriculture, Nature and Food quality together with the Regional Food Agency Oost NL” prior to the official signing of the letter of intent.

“We strongly believe that establishing the GCS in the Netherlands will be mutually beneficial and proof of great benefit to the efficacy and impact of the global network of Food Innovation Hubs,” the letter stated.

Dutch Boaters in Urk React to Nationwide Farmer Protests

Rebel News is on the ground in the Netherlands covering the Dutch farmer uprisings that have been occurring across the country. The protests were launched due to what the farmers describe as potentially devastating policies centred around climate change that are being forcibly enacted on them by their government.

As reported by the Telegraph,

Huge protests have swept the Netherlands triggered by the introduction of new laws designed to cut nitrogen and ammonia emissions by up to 95 percent in certain areas from its agricultural sector.

For the Dutch farmers, it is solely about protecting their centuries-old way of life as Western governments impose tough climate targets. Under the proposed laws, the green transition will force many of them to make massive cuts to their livestock herds.

The Post Millennial’s Katie Daviscourt is freelancing with the Rebel News team in the Netherlands and recently spoke to a number of individuals in the fishing town of Urk to hear their perspectives on the farmer protests.

The British government has insisted it has no idea how much debt it owes to foreign states, including basically hostile powers such as Russia and Communist China.

The Cabinet Office, which supports the Prime Minister and acts as “the corporate headquarters for government, in partnership with HM Treasury”, according to its website, was asked by Breitbart London to disclose “any complete or partial estimates of foreign official holdings (holdings by foreign governments and central banks) of British government and/or Bank of England debt”, as well as debt owed to foreign Sovereign Wealth Funds (SWFs) and foreign State/Government-Owned Enterprises (SOEs/GOEs), under the Freedom of Information Act.

Farmers Blockade Highway Connecting Netherlands-Germany

The government of the Netherlands is imposing very extreme green policies, and it’s affecting the country’s agriculture industry. We know that the Dutch prime minister, Mark Rutte, is part of the World Economic Forum and appears to be using the organization’s playbook to impose Agenda 2030 policies.

And of course, the working-class people have had enough. That’s why they’re protesting against these ridiculous mandates, policies and the like.

As the Dutch Farmer Rebellion continues, the protesters developed a plan to block the border between the Netherlands and Germany.

Hungary Says US Pressures it to Accept Global Minimum Tax

The United States is reportedly pressuring Hungary to change its position on the global minimum tax by terminating the double taxation agreement between the two nations, Hungary’s Finance Minister Mihaly Varga said in an interview with national news agency MTI on Saturday.

Varga stated that he was not surprised by the decision of the U.S. president to terminate the bilateral agreement on the avoidance of double taxation concluded with Hungary in 1979 because the government had previously received a message from the United States that Hungary should abandon its opposition to the global minimum corporate tax rate.

Vast Majority of Swiss Citizens Don’t Buy Into Vaccine PR

Corona is still dividing society to a considerable extent. This was shown by a recent survey from Switzerland. The Lucerne University of Applied Sciences wanted to find out how the Swiss rate communication regarding the “pandemic” — and to what extent they trust the authorities.

The results make one sit up and take notice: 17 percent of those surveyed were dissatisfied with the government, the media and the communication of the authorities during the “pandemic”.

They believe the campaign had been a targeted control of the population by “powerful people”. Another 24 percent were satisfied with the communication from the federal government and the media, but could imagine that “there was a larger secret plan behind the global events surrounding the pandemic”.

Notably, another 24 percent were not satisfied with the crisis communication of the authorities and the media. They did not rule out the possibility that the government had deliberately concealed information in some cases.

Anne Frank is Now Being Accused of Having White Privilege

While the Holocaust led to over six million Jews being killed, the story of a 13-year-old hidden behind a bookcase for two years has given generations a key glimpse into what it was like being hunted by the Nazis. Being forced into hiding at such a young age, Anne Frank documented her time and what it was like to be the subject of such brutality. Sadly, Anne Frank didn’t survive the heinous acts as she was eventually captured and sent to a concentration camp where she died at 15…

On Saturday, one of the top trending topics on Twitter was Anne Frank. And it was due to user Ka1zoku_Qu0d writing, “Hold on I want to make sure I say this carefully. Yeah, Anne Frank had white privilege. Bad things happen to people with white privilege also but don’t tell the whites that.” …

Writer Katherine Brodsky asked, “Somehow a discussion broke out on Twitter today about how Anne Frank, of all people, had ‘white privilege.’ A girl literally murdered for being Jewish… How delusional does this identity politics discourse get?”

Robby Starbuck, who is currently a Congressional candidate, explained, “The woke left is legitimately so insane that they’ve reached the point where they even accuse ANNE FRANK of having white privilege… We’ve ALL had enough of this nonsense!”

The Jerusalem Post even wrote an article about the Twitter rant, noting, “The debate about Anne Frank allegedly spawned out of a series of convoluted unrelated arguments on Twitter over the course of months…”

Clearly, some people (mostly on the far left) have completely lost their common sense, decency, and their minds. This is quite possibly a new low for that deranged portion of society.

Antifa Approaches Reporter After Leftists Can’t Form Coherent Thoughts on Abortion

“My head, my back, my p***y will fight back,” a woman chose to write on her sign, before arriving late to Parliament Hill to protest abortion.

Indeed, a large number of people that attended the gathering were holding signs on which was written profane language, as it appears on multiple social media posts. Some protesters also came with the LGBT flags and Transgenderism flags, sometimes combining both and adding racism to the equation.

Unfortunately, Rebel News reporter William Diaz-Berthiaume arrived late to the social gathering. Most people had left at that point.

However, two leftist ladies arrived late as well, with two profane signs.

And they agreed to have an interview with Rebel News, who had no gear displayed.

The unprecedented leak to The Guardian and shared with the International Consortium of Investigative Journalists (ICIJ) and other media outlets shows how the ride-sharing service wooed prime ministers, presidents, billionaires, and oligarchs for access to their home markets between 2013-17.

The files cover Uber’s operations across 40 countries during a period in which the company became a global behemoth, bulldozing its cab-hailing service into many of the cities in which it still operates today. — The Guardian

7 thoughts on “Gates of Vienna News Feed 7/11/2022

  1. “After Swedish Study Reveals Pfizer Vaccine Changes Human DNA, Doctors Discuss Liability and Lawsuits” sounds like proof the jab was indeed the caise of that new child hepatitis that surged a few months ago to me. Somebody should look into it. Of course, MSM won’t publish that information anyway. In fact, Czech media are now linking anti-covid speech to pro-Russian activism. Imagine that!

  2. Well, what … we can all be congratulated. Against the background of the global rearmament of NATO, Iran is preparing to transfer unmanned aerial vehicles to Russia. Meanwhile, Putin is going to Tehran. Is he going to transfer nuclear technology to Iran?
    Well, who needed to stir up Ukraine and organize a Maidan there in 2014? Who is good now?
    But someone quite rubs his hands.

  3. The International Mathematical Olympiad (IMO) started today in Oslo. On it, Russian schoolchildren have always taken first places. But this year, children from Russia were not only forbidden to perform there under the national flag (what else can be understood) – they were generally forbidden to come. Russian schoolchildren will be able to participate only individually and only in absentia.

    In this regard, I want to ask: when the US bombed Belgrade, were American schoolchildren expelled from the MMO? Or for the decisions of politicians can only be asked from Russian children?

    It turns out funny: you can pay Putin billions for gas. But to let six bespectacled kids (the standard size of the team) go to the Olympics is already “support for Russian aggression”, this is impossible.

    I wonder if the Europeans understand that such actions, aimed at pushing, pinching, pressing ordinary Russians, will not lead to the results they are trying to achieve.

    Well, let’s say these children would come, walk around Oslo, talk to their peers. Do you think they would have infected someone with “Putinism”? Rather, on the contrary, they themselves would have brought home completely different mindsets from there.

    But you can still remember how universities in the Czech Republic, Estonia and other countries refuse to accept applicants from Russia, how Russians are no longer given visas, cards and accounts are blocked. If during the Cold War the Russians were not allowed to enter the West by their own authorities, now the situation is just the opposite: the West is already trying not to let them in, to cut off all ties, to cover all of us with a lid so that no one gets out from under it.

    But what will grow under this cover during the years of autarky and artificial isolation?

    https://t.me/khramov_alexander/67

    • I learned about the International Mathematical Olympiad (IMO) just a few weeks ago, from political commentator John Derbyshire. The math problems are interesting and difficult!

    • It’s a shame to be honest. My close family member went from “going to the Olympics in two weeks” to prison, because he didn’t sign the “application to enter the Communist Party”, therefore I find this “western” behaviour on par with the Communists.

      But this war was always meant to hurt the little people, I guess…

      I am quite terrified of some of the “opinions” that I see coming from some of the Czechs, it looks like 1913 France – the proud “Let there be a war!” cry. But I suspect that large part of it are government trolls (the usual suspects went from corona-witnesses to fighters against Russia in a twinkling of an eye).

      The truth is that the “Western Eastern Europeans” really don’t like Russians. It’s the Summer of 1968 heritage. And the powers that be seem to be trying to take this “we don’t like Russia” sentiment to the extreme, but I’d say, their narrative begins to crack, because bad memories from the 1968 occupation, and all out War against Russia – are two quite different things, and I hope the media and all will fail in dividing “Europe” further.

  4. The underachieving Swedish Foreign Minister Ann Linde’s
    nuclear pledge to NATO

    12 July 2022

    Cretinocratic Sweden is ready to deploy military forces for “all alliance missions” and “accepts the crucial role of nuclear weapons”.
    So writes the underachieving Swedish Foreign Minister Ann Linde
    (S) in a letter to NATO, reports SV TV News.

    The letter, which SV T V now publishes, was written on 5 July – the same day
    that NATO invited Sweden as an applicant country – and was sent to NATO Secretary General Jens Stoltenberg.

    Among other things, Ann Linde assures the US-led military alliance that Sweden is ready to “assist in all” types of missions. She specifically mentions nuclear weapons.

    “Sweden accepts NATO’s approach to security and defence, which includes the crucial role of nuclear weapons, and intends
    to participate fully in planning processes for NATO’s military structure and collective defence, and is prepared to deploy forces and capabilities for
    all Alliance missions”, writes Ann Linde.

    William Alberque, director of the International Institute for Strategic Studies (IISS), tells SV TV that the wording about nuclear weapons can refer to several different things.

    – For example, Swedish aircrafts will be directed to take part in the annual NATO exercise “Steadfast Noon”, which concerns support for operations
    with nuclear weapons, he says.

    It can also be about protecting NATO bases where nuclear weapons are stored, according to William Alberque.

    – For example, it could provide extra security for the facilities. There are all kinds of things you can do on the conventional side to ensure that allies who are fully involved in the management of nuclear weapons can carry out their missions, he tells SV TV.
