Gates of Vienna News Feed 7/6/2022

The Georgia Guidestones were badly damaged early this morning by an explosion from an unknown source. One wing of the monument was reduced to fragments, as was part of the capstone. The owner of the site brought in earthmoving equipment later in the day to demolish the rest of the monument.

In other news, a woman was stabbed to death at a political event on the Swedish island of Gotland. A neo-Nazi is thought to be responsible for the attack.

Canada Could Face Prolonged Recession Beginning Next Year

Economists are predicting that should a recession arrive within the next year, Canada will fare worse than the United States.

Canada’s situations is far more precarious due to how much its economy relies on residential investment according to Macquarie Group economist David Doyle.

“When [Canada] has recessions, the lion’s share of the weakness in gross domestic product tends to come from residential investment,” said Doyle.

According to Doyle, Canadians could see much higher unemployment and lackluster GDP performance meaning that a recession would be more drawn out.

Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis’s office is pushing back on a false claim about a new state law that Twitter users, including author Stephen King and several journalists with large followings, have been spreading, despite it being debunked a year ago.

The law, which calls for “intellectual freedom and viewpoint diversity” at state colleges, says schools in the Florida College System must conduct an annual survey of “the extent to which competing ideas and perspectives are presented” and students, faculty and others “feel free to express their beliefs and viewpoints on campus and in the classroom.”

Explosion ‘Destroyed’ Large Portion of Georgia Guidestones, GBI Says

ELBERT COUNTY, Ga. — The Georgia Bureau of Investigation said an explosion damaged a controversial northeast Georgia landmark.

The Georgia Guidestones, a granite attraction in Elbert County, are located off of Guidestone Road just east of Ga. Highway 77. Elberton Granite Association Executive VP Chris Kubas said drone footage showed the monument was significantly damaged.

Explosion Partially Destroys Georgia Guidestones

The controversial Georgia Guidestones, a monument located in Georgia, has been partially destroyed after reports of an explosion.

“Investigators said unknown people detonated an explosive device at around 4 a.m,” reports Fox 5 Atlanta. No one was injured as a result of the incident.

One of the “wings” of the monument was completely destroyed by the blast, which occurred despite constant monitoring of the site with cameras that feed back to a 911 call center.

The Georgia Bureau of Investigation responded to the explosion by sending the bomb squad. Drone footage shows that the tourist attraction has suffered extensive damage.

The monument has attracted opposition amongst some due to its creepy inscriptions, which call for “maintaining humanity under 500 million,” a figure which the world hasn’t seen since the 1500’s and would require outright mass genocide to achieve.

The stones also call for the imposition of a “world court” and demands humans “be not a cancer on the Earth.”

San Diego Loses 22% of Its Police Force Due to Vax Mandates

San Diego is witnessing the largest exodus of police officers from the city since 2009 and the majority of them are quitting because of the city’s continued obsession with covid vaccine mandates.

Perhaps the smartest move the people of Los Angeles County ever made was to elect Sheriff Alex Villanueva, who refused to enforce unconstitutional vax mandates. The decision probably saved them from losing a quarter or more of their law enforcement officers within the sheriff’s department.

Contrast this with the LAPD, which was not so lucky. Officers have quit in droves or were fired, with over 2200 employees refusing to comply. This has been a repeating situation across California, and San Diego is the latest region to suffer considerable losses of LEO’s over vax mandates.

More than 230 San Diego police officers have left city employment in the 2022 fiscal year alone (252 sworn deputies in 2021), totaling around 22% of all deputies in active service.

Pandemic Pets Are Being Returned to the Shelter and it’s Heartbreaking

Adopting a pet is a huge responsibility. When doing so, people need to prioritize their money and time to make sure that their animal is well taken care of.

My experience as a dog owner is that they are such loyal creatures and they do get attached easily to the person they live with. It’s infuriating hearing how so many people are now surrendering their ‘pandemic pet’ back to the shelter.

According to CP24, the number of pets surrendered to Toronto shelters so far this year is up 75% compared to the first half of 2021.

The Toronto Animal Services (TAS) say that 709 pets, including cats, dogs and others, were given to city shelters from January 1 to June 23 this year, compared to 404 during the same time period last year.

The EU Approves Legislation That Requires Apple to Accept Side-Loaded Apps and More

The European Parliament has formally adopted the Digital Services Act (DSA) and the Digital Markets Act (DMA), now collectively called the Digital Services Package. The acts were first proposed to the European Commission in 2020.

Ukraine Latest: Price Cap on Russian Oil Mulled; Doubts on Grain

The US and its allies have discussed trying to cap the price on Russian oil between $40 and about $60 a barrel, according to people familiar with the matter, as they seek to limit the Kremlin’s ability to finance its war on Ukraine.

German Chancellor Olaf Scholz accused Russian President Vladimir Putin of using natural gas deliveries as a political weapon. European natural gas resumed its rally as traders focused on the risk of potential disruptions from top supplier Russia.

Ukraine’s foreign minister cast doubt on a near-term breakthrough in talks to unblock grain exports from the war-ravaged nation’s Black Sea ports, as fears of a global hunger crisis intensify. Foreign ministers from the Group of 20 nations began arriving for a two-day meeting in Bali where Russia’s war is expected to dominate discussions.

Australians Urged Not to Charge Their Electric Cars

The world is plagued by record high energy and fuel prices at the same time as energy supply is becoming increasingly strained. It can be seen not least in the southern hemisphere where winter now reigns. At the same time, the globalists’ mandatory “green” change is taking place all over the world, which has created and is driving the energy crisis and the now rampant inflation.

Governments around the world are being admonished by globalists in order to avoid an alleged climate catastrophe in the form of global warming. This is despite the fact that the earth’s average temperature is now falling and harvests around the world are being decimated by increasingly colder weather.

In Greenland, climate alarmists had warned, the ice would melt. Instead, once again, they are experiencing record volumes of snow and ice.

Australian leaders are now urging the already hard-pressed population not to charge their electric cars. This is due to the ongoing energy crisis, which has affected the whole world but especially Western countries.

A woman riding the ghost train at a fair in the Saint-Germain-en-Laye commune in France was sexually assaulted by an Algerian migrant dressed as a clown, according to police.

The woman was riding the ghost train ride at 1:30 a.m. on July 3 at the Fête des Loges, billed as the largest fair in France. As her wagon entered the labyrinth area of the ride, a clown reached out and grabbed her, and began to grope her breasts, “caressing them incessantly,” as the woman described to the police.

As the U.S. Supreme Court nears the end of its term with a slew of major rulings on abortion, gun rights and environmental regulation, media personalities have doubled down on their provocative rhetoric questioning the legitimacy of the Court.

Jackson Women’s Health Organization last month, sparking nationwide protests and questions about abortion rights in states across the country.

  1. In other news, a woman was stabbed to death at a political event on the Swedish island of Gotland.

    Please postpone all the coming civil wars in Europe so that we can focus on annihilating our “manufactured enemy”. We have to put off all civil-wars-in-waiting because we respect islam.

    https://www.dailyrecord.co.uk/news/uk-world-news/brother-girl-cut-up-kebab-27412048

    islam is our soul, our life, our halal banks, the darling of our girls and political parties. How come we did not bring it here 14 centuries ago?

  2. German officials are wrestling over how much of the cost of rescuing troubled energy giant Uniper SE they can pass onto consumers as they rush to put together a bailout package for the company squeezed by Russia’s gas war.

    Notice the diabolical word : SQUEEZED by Whom?

    the company squeezed by Russia’s gas war.

    Did they squeeze Hitler the same way?

    Did they squeeze the MINSK Agreement

    ——————— What did the Minsk agreement say?
    This agreement consisted of a package of measures, including a ceasefire, withdrawal of heavy weapons from the front line, release of prisoners of war, constitutional reform in Ukraine granting self-government to certain areas of Donbas and restoring control of the state border to the Ukrainian government.

  3. Autism is related to age of the father as genetic polymorphisms increase. Western countries have allowed housing to increase to such a level, by selling it to the Chinese, that people can’t afford children when they are young. Also, Hollywood/the Left has sold the idea that you can be a parent at 40, 50, 60 and it’s OK. Actually it’s not, as you get older the genetic material has more abnormalities and these are passed on to your children. Most developmental delays are genetic in cause but children are not routinely tested. They are just diagnosed then streamed either mainstream or into special schools. We have 100’s of special schools and I think the number will increase as Melbourne has some of the highest property prices in the world. I know someone who had to ask for the DNA test, not offered by govt clinic. I work with children and often see children with delays and think, gee you could have been healthy if your parents could have got married and had kids in their 20’s. Genetic abnormalities can be from genetic deletions and genetic deletions with mosaicism, also genetic mutations that are passed on. Many are De Novo, do not occur in the parents.

  4. Autism and I think all mental health problems have an immune system component, certainly depression and psychosis are affected by Vitamin D levels and Cytokine levels. people need to focus on keeping their immune system healthy. This is where the globalist diet will destroy everyone’s mental and physical health.
    https://www.autism.org/immune-system-function-autism/
    I’ve read high levels of Cytokines , inflammation, over time alter the brains’s architecture which is what happens in autism and schizophrenia. This is not reversible.

  5. Was in fact waiting for that to happen to the Guidestones. People get out of their minds in mad rage over the stupidest beliefs. Nobody bothers to think twice anymore. R.C. Christian actually released a book after the monument was erected where he explained in more details what its message meant, most notably -not- the active extermination of people for the purpose of reaching the proposed stability number. In case anyone is interested, it’s called “Common Sense Renewed” and can be easily found for free download, probably not even a copyright violation in this case.

  6. The idiocy of the “equal value of all” reaches new heights in the kretinocracy of Sweden.

    Sweden pledges to fight racism against all but Swedes

    Published 7 July 2022 Fria Tider

    The government has adopted five programmes to combat racism against all major ethnic groups in Sweden except Swedes, writes Dagens Juridik.

    The action programmes contain concrete measures aimed at countering Afrophobia, anti-Semitism, anti-Gypsyism, Islamophobia and racism against the Sami respectively.

    However, no measures are proposed to combat Swedishophobia and discrimination against Swedes, despite the fact that the problems of anti-Swedish crime are very real, according to surveys by, among others, Brå. However, prosecutors rarely choose to prosecute perpetrators of hate crimes.

    Minister of Culture Jeanette Gustafsdotter explains the approach as “equal value for all”.

    – We must never accept any form of racism. It’s about human dignity. Racism separates people and contributes to a dangerous polarisation. That’s why we are raising the bar on equal value for all,” she says in a press release.

    Poor stupid woman(?).

    • Maybe they did it themselves.
      I dont know for sure but I have a creeping feeling when something fishy happens, like Epsteins “suicide”, the Georgia Guidestones, etc that by some miracle all cameras stop working.
