Gates of Vienna News Feed 7/7/2022

Giving in to inexorable pressure from his fellow “Conservatives”, British Prime Minister Boris Johnson has resigned. I’m disappointed that we won’t have BoJo to kick around anymore. It’s not clear who is most likely to succeed him at No. 10.

In other news, law enforcement authorities in Georgia are still searching for the person or persons who blew up the Georgia Guidestones.

Cash Ban: Belgium Obliges All Shops to Accept Cards

A law came into force in Belgium which obliges every shop to accept card payments. Paying only in cash is no longer possible. Those responsible assert that a no-cash ban is planned in the medium term. Critics worry about a possible attempt to create consumption and movement profiles. It is probably also the next step for the nationwide introduction of the digital euro — and thus total control over citizens

Corona as a springboard for a digitized world: Hardly in any other area was this as obvious at the beginning of the “pandemic” as with cash.

In the fear of a supposed “killer virus” people were told that banknotes were contaminated. In some cases, shops instructed their customers to pay by card in anticipatory obedience.

Unemployment in Poland Lowest in 32 Years, But Inflation Highest Since 1997

Poland’s economy appears to be going strong, with unemployment tremendously low, but at the same time, inflation remains a major headwind.

According to data released for the end of June 2022, the number of Poles registered as unemployed had fallen to 4.9 percent in June from 5.1 percent in May, the lowest unemployment figure in 32 years. Poland had 819,700 people out of work, down 30,500 from May and over 173,000 fewer than at this time last year.

Commenting on the new figures, Labor Minister Marlena Malag said, “Today, we have over 100,000 fewer unemployed than before the pandemic in February 2020, and the unemployment rate has fallen by 0.6 percent over that period.”

Authorities Searching for Whoever Set Off Explosion at Mysterious Georgia Monument

(CNN) — A mysterious Georgia monument was damaged Wednesday when an explosive device was detonated near the attraction, prompting authorities to then demolish it for safety reasons, the Georgia Bureau of Investigation said.

Investigators are now searching for whoever set off the explosive at the nearly 20-foot monument known as the Georgia Guidestones, the GBI said.

The blast happened around 4 a.m. in Elberton, about 100 miles east of Atlanta, according to the GBI. No one was injured, officials said.

A large section of the granite slab at the site sometimes referred to as “America’s Stonehenge” broke apart and collapsed, according to a video released by authorities.

A car left the site shortly after the explosion, a second video shows.

The monument then was demolished for safety reasons, the GBI said.

The four vertical slabs that dominate the Guidestones were inscribed back and front with 10 principles, each side in a different modern language. The capstone is inscribed in the alphabets of early human civilizations — Egyptian hieroglyphics, Babylonian cuneiform, Sanskrit and classical Greek.

CNN Suggests Gun Shops Should Check Buyers’ Social Media Pages Before Agreeing Sales

In the wake of the shooting on July 4th at Highland Park, and the fact that the shooter had multiple disturbing posts on social media prior to the attack, a CNN host suggested Tuesday that gun shops should check customers’ personal pages before agreeing to sell them firearms.

CNN Newsroom co-host Alisyn Camerota made the suggestion while interviewing former Philadelphia police commissioner Charles Ramsey and former FBI supervisory special agent Steve Moore.

Camerota noted that “these suspects … are starting to look alike,” before suggesting “is it too much to ask the gun seller to do a cursory check on social media?”

Highland Park Suspect’s Father to be Investigated for Signing Gun Application

Robert Crimo Jr denies any responsibility for the attack, saying ‘I had no — not an inkling, warning — that this was going to happen’

The father of the Highland Park gunman will be criminally investigated in connection with the Independence Day attack for signing an affidavit supporting his son’s application for a gun license, police said.

Robert Crimo Jr, the father of Robert Crimo III — who is suspected of killing seven people at a Fourth of July parade in a suburb of Chicago — sponsored his son’s firearm owner application in 2019.

Speaking to media before the announcement of the investigation into him, Crimo Jr denied any responsibility for the attack. “I had no — not an inkling, warning — that this was going to happen,” Crimo told ABC News.

In Illinois, individuals must be at least 21 to independently obtain a Firearm Owners Identification (FOID), which is generally needed to legally own a gun.

Anyone under 21 can apply for a FOID with the written consent of a parent or legal guardian who is not prohibited from having a FOID card themselves.

In doing so, they agree to be held liable for “any damages resulting from the minor applicant’s use of firearms or firearm ammunition”…

British Prime Minister Boris Johnson Resigns

British Prime Minister Boris Johnson on Thursday resigned from his post, after days of resignations from his government left him unable to govern.

“I want you to know how sad I am to be giving up the best job in the world,” Johnson said from outside the prime minster’s official residence at 10 Downing Street, in London.

Johnson up until Wednesday, was steadfast about remaining as prime minister. But he finally agreed to step down after close ally Treasury Chief Nadhim Zahawi told him to do so for the good of the country, according to the Associated Press.

Zahawi’s intervention followed two more members of Johnson’s Cabinet recently resigning, along with three junior officials, bringing the number of those who have left the government this week to over 50.

Johnson will remain as prime minister until a successor is in place, according to The New York Times.

The 58-year-old Johnson was able to remain in power for nearly three years, amid allegations that he was too close to party donors, misled Parliament and was dishonest about government office parties that violate pandemic lockdown rules.

However, recent disclosures that Johnson knew about sexual misconduct allegations against Chris Pincher, a Conservative lawmaker, before he promoted Pincher to a senior position appeared to a final mistake, the wire service also reports.

Poland Shocked After Dutch Farmers Shot at by Police; Expert Warns of Violence Seen in Western Liberal Democracies Coming East

The Dutch government, pursuing its climate and environmental policy of reducing the emission of nitrogen, is squeezing agricultural production with agricultural targets farmers argue are impossible to meet. These measures come on top of other policies that have affected the sector, such as a ban on fur farming.

According to Monika Przeworska, the director of Poland’s Agriculture Institute, Poland needs to take careful note of what is happening in the West. She argues that Poles need to be aware that what happens in the West is often later transferred eastward as official EU policy. Przeworska told Polish Catholic broadcaster Radio Maryja that the Dutch government is treating farmers like “terrorists.”

In typical Boris-like fashion, the prime minister issued a statesman-like, composed statement during his address to the nation, in which he highlighted the perceived successes of his administration during his almost three years in office. Johnson spoke of his Brexit agreement with the European Union, the U.K.’s efficient coronavirus vaccine roll-out, and the unlocking of the country following the pandemic, which he said was the fastest in Europe; he also highlighted Britain’s unrelenting support for Ukraine in standing up to Russian aggression.

Caroline Glick: How to End Israel’s Political Instability

For the past three and a half years, dysfunctional politics have rendered Israel hard-pressed to identify and seize opportunities or respond adequately to rising threats, whether they emanate from Tehran, Washington, Europe, Saudi Arabia or beyond.

Last Thursday, the Bennett-Lapid government dissolved Israel’s parliament, the Knesset, setting elections for November 1. Prime Minister Naftali Bennett resigned from the premiership after a year in office and announced he would not run in the coming elections. Foreign Minister Yair Lapid stepped in to serve as interim prime minister. These will be Israel’s fifth elections in three and a half years.

This raises the key question: What explains Israel’s political deadlock, and what must happen for it to end?

The deadlock isn’t between the right and left sides of the spectrum. A significant majority of Israelis identify with the Right. The deadlock stems from the appearance of the NeverNetanyahu Right three and a half years ago as the kingmaker of Israeli politics…

Turkey Arrests Kurdish Journalists Under the Guise of “Anti-Terrorism”

Under the guise of counter-terrorism, police arrested 19 journalists, two media employees, and one citizen who was being interviewed after raiding their homes in Diyarbakir, in Kurdish, eastern Turkey. Criminal investigations were launched against them to target “the Press Structure of the Kurdish Workers Party (PKK) and Kurdistan Communities Union (KCK).”

Since the early 1980s, journalists in Kurdish have been targeted by Turkish authorities because of reporting on rights violations by the government. The conflict between the PKK, which advocates for the rights of Kurdish people, and the Turkish authorities has resulted in over 400,000 deaths. The government, the US, and EU consider the PKK a terrorist organization.

India: Communal Clash in Kerur Over SC Observation on Nupur Sharma, 3 Stabbed, Crpc 144 Imposed

Three stabbed and several injured in communal clash at Kerur town in Bagalkot district of Karnataka. Prohibitory orders have been clamped to contain the communal violence between Hindus and Muslims. Nine arrested so far.

B Upendran | HENB | Bangalkot | July 7, 2022:: injured in a clash between two groups of different communities in Kerur town on Wednesday evening.

A war allegedly broke out between members of Hindu and Muslim communities at a bus stand over the issue connected to Justice Surya Kant and Justice Pardiwala’s observation on suspended BJP leader Nupur Sharma that turned into a communal clash when both the warring parties tried some vegetable carts and a bike on fire. All these happened after stabbing with knife upon some members of right wing Hindutva group members by a ‘particular community’ mob all of a sudden.

At least ten push carts and five vehicles were torched by angry mobs. J.B. Majjigi, Tahsildar, Badami, has clamped prohibitory orders under CrPC 144 from Wednesday night to Friday night. All schools and colleges in the town will remain closed on Thursday and Friday.

Arun Kattimani, Lakshman Kattimani and Chungi Yamanur with stab wounds were told as Hindu Jagaran Vedik members. Bande Nawaz Gokak received a head injury. All four are admitted to a local hospital and are said to be out of danger. Other injured persons were treated by local dispensaries.

S. Jayaprakash, Superintendent of Police, and P. Sunil Kumar, Deputy commissioner, visited the town, and the police have taken five persons into custody.

An official release from the Tahsildar office said that a verbal duel between Arun Kattimani and Yasin Pendari turned into an incident of communal violence.

While the police maintain that a street harassment incident involving a woman led to the clash, some others argue that the fight was over a social media post by a woman doctor belonging to anti-BJP group.

The doctor allegedly posted a message opposing former BJP spokesperson Nupur Sharma’s statement against Prophet Mohammad, questioning the inaction against her in the line of recent oral observations made by a supreme court bench headed by Justice Surya Kant, comprising Justice JB Pardiwala. This allegedly angered members of a right-wing group who went to the police seeking the arrest of the doctor. The local police did not entertain them and refused to register an FIR.

But, many media houses wanted to depict the matter of clash as cases of ‘personal issue’ or ‘eve teasing’…

India: Jihadi Killers of Umesh Kolhe Might be ‘Self-Inspired’ By ISIS Module, Officials Say After Raids

NIA raids 13 places in Maharashtra, seizes pamphlets spreading hate messages. Officials say killers might be ‘self-inspired’ by ISIS module. Autopsy reveals, Umesh Kolhe died of 8-inch stab wound that reached his spine.

Upendra Bharti | HENB | Mumbai | Jul 7, 2022:: The National Investigation Agency (NIA) on Wednesday conducted searches at 13 locations across Maharashtra around Amravati in connection with the murder of Amravati based chemist Umesh Prahladrao Kolhe. Kolhe (54) — who had allegedly been attacked with a knife by a group of three Jihadi minded men between 10pm and 10:30pm on June 21 — died during treatment at hospital.

The chemist had put out a post on social media in support of Nupur Sharma, who had made controversial comments on Prophet Muhammad during a TV debate in May.

The probe agency also seized digital devices, pamphlets spreading hate messages and other incriminating materials including knives, reported ANI.

The seven are Muddassir Ahmad (22), Shahrukh Pathan (25), Abdul Taufiq (24) Shoaib Khan (22), Atib Rashid (22) and Yusuf Bahadur Khan (44) and alleged mastermind Shaikh Irfan Shaikh Rahim (32).

Officials on Thursday suspected that the Amravati chemist might be murdered by gang ‘self-inspired’ by ISIS. Officials noted that the killers might have been ‘self-inspired’ by the violence carried out by ISIS. A probe is going on to ascertain if the accused has any links with any terrorist organisation.

Notably, Amravati chemist Umesh Kolhe was killed by two motorcycle-borne assailants for allegedly putting out a post on social media in support of the suspended BJP leader Nupur Sharma.

An official said that the manner in which Kolhe was killed indicated that the killers might have been ‘self-inspired’, taking a cue from ISIS…

No Role for Australia in Assange Case: Brandis

Australia has no legal grounds in which to intervene in the Julian Assange case, says former attorney-general George Brandis.

The WikiLeaks founder and Australian journalist has appealed to the High Court in London to block his extradition to the United States to face criminal charges in the latest step in a legal battle that has dragged on for more than a decade.

Assange, 50, is wanted by US authorities on 18 counts, including a spying charge, relating to WikiLeaks’ release of vast troves of confidential US military records and diplomatic cables which US officials have said put lives in danger.

No Longer a Conspiracy Theory: Dutch Farmers Must Make Way for Asylum Seekers

Flevo member of parliament Niek Beenen (JA21) has shared a document on Twitter from the province of Flevoland in the Netherlands about the purchase of “nitrogen space” in the Noordoostpolder.

“The province of Flevoland has bought nitrogen space in the Noordoostpolder. With the nitrogen space that has been freed up, the province can help a number of PAS claimants in the Noordoostpolder. This opportunity has arisen because the government has bought an agricultural business in the Noordoostpolder. The government wants to set up a registration centre for asylum seekers at the location of the farm,” reads the document.

“In this country, farming families who produce food are being exchanged for asylum seekers,” tweeted Beenen.

Texas Governor Orders Troopers, Guard to Remove Illegal Migrants to Border in Major Escalation

In a major escalation to address the border crisis, Texas Gov. Greg Abbott ordered National Guard troops and state troopers on Thursday to arrest illegal immigrants and forcibly return them to the border.

Abbott’s executive order came two days after a half dozen wary Texas counties declared they have been overrun by an “invasion” of illegal migrants and pleaded for more action from the state.

Abbott’s new action stopped short of declaring an invasion — an invocation under the U.S. Constitution that would allow him to use state militia to defend against the wave of illegal immigrants and keep them from crossing.

Neighborhood Angst Grows as Protests in Front of Kavanaugh’s House Continue

Angst among the neighbors of Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh is growing as weekly protests continue at his Chevy Chase home in the wake of last month’s overturning of Roe v. Wade.

The protests became frequent after a draft opinion was leaked in May signaling the likely overturning of Roe. Since the landmark abortion rights case was reversed on June 24, the protests have generally been occurring on Wednesdays and sometimes on weekends. Kavanaugh was among the justices who voted to overturn Roe.

On Wednesday night, more than 30 protesters marched in front of Kavanaugh’s home, moving constantly from one side of the street to the other. After marching for several minutes they continued on to Chief Justice John Roberts’ home in the neighborhood on the other side of Connecticut Avenue, less than a mile away.

  1. Another step closer to a totalitarian, but already citizen hostile, tyrannical society, i.e. today’s Kretinocratic Sweden.

    Don’t come to Sweden as a tourist, student, researcher, businessman, or visitor in general, and think that you will be able to buy and get an access to the internet!

    From 08.01. 2022 this is only possible for persons who are residents, i.e. registered by and in the Kretinocracy of Sweden.

    Anonymous prepaid cards banned in August

    Published 7 July 2022 Fria Tider
    Internet surveillance will be tightened considerably on 1 August when the sale of anonymous prepaid cards will be banned. The change will make it impossible to make calls or use the internet without the authorities being able to see who is doing what. Cards that are not registered within a certain time will be suspended.

    The rules, introduced on 1 August, mean that users who opt for a prepaid mobile or mobile broadband prepaid card will have to register certain subscriber information before the service can be used.

    Prepaid cards or similar prepaid services purchased before 1 August can be used without registration until 1 February 2023 or until a new prepayment is made.

    If a user wishes to transfer their prepaid card to someone else, the new user must be registered. There are some exceptions, including for close relatives. Otherwise, the mobile operator will have to suspend the service, under the new rules, which are similar to the banks’ “customer due diligence” requirements for using bank accounts.

    Basic subscriber data to be recorded are name, postal address, personal identity number, coordination number, organisation number or other identifying number and the number or other designation of the service in question.

    Anonyma kontantkort förbjudna i augusti

    Publicerad 7 juli 2022 Fria Tider

    Övervakningen på internet kommer att skärpas avsevärt den 1 augusti då försäljningen av anonyma kontantkort förbjuds. Förändringen kommer att göra det omöjligt att ringa samtal eller använda internet utan att myndigheterna kan se vem som gör vad. Kort som inte registreras inom en viss tid kommer att dras in.

    Reglerna, som införs den 1 augusti, innebär att användare som väljer ett förbetalt kort för mobiltelefoni eller mobilt bredband måste registrera vissa abonnentuppgifter innan tjänsten kan användas.

    Förbetalda kort eller liknande förbetalda tjänster som köpts före den 1 augusti kan användas utan registrering fram till den 1 februari 2023 eller tills en ny förskottsbetalning görs.

    Om en användare vill överföra sitt kontantkort till någon annan måste den nya användaren registreras. Det finns vissa undantag, bland annat för nära släktingar. I annat fall måste mobiloperatören stänga av tjänsten enligt de nya reglerna, som liknar bankernas krav på “kundkännedom” för användning av bankkonton.

    De grundläggande abonnentuppgifter som ska registreras är namn, postadress, personnummer, samordningsnummer, organisationsnummer eller annat identifikationsnummer samt nummer eller annan beteckning för tjänsten i fråga.

  2. BoJo de Posh liar cheat degenerate greasy piglet is still the PM of the UK. He resigned maybe as leader of what he refers to as “the herd”. What is going on is a total mind duck. Brings Jimi’s 6 9 number to mind. The population is mentally ill. No wonder the Muslims forge ahead.

  3. Re Sky News and Canada. Unfortunately, most Australians watch mainstream crap news and get the news from facebook/social media. So they are completely ignorant of what goes on in the world. Only small minority are actually well informed. Viz the recent election when many unknowingly voted for a Green Profiteering oligarch called Simon Holmes a Court. He was one seat short of having control of the Australian Parliament and government policy, a very close shave. Maybe he will run Australia after the next federal election if the morons here still keep voting for his party. He’s a bit like Kolomoisky, but I don’t think he’s Jewish. I wonder who he will appoint as his puppet Prime Minister if he controls government?

  4. I seriously doubt that the authorities are really looking for whoever blew up the Georgia Guidestones. they have security camera footage from two different angles showing the actual explosion. Any such footage would also show the individuals who did it walking up to the site, placing the bomb, and walking away. Yet they are not showing us that footage, are they?

    And isn’t it interesting how quickly the rest of the stones were pulled down, due to supposedly being declared “unsafe”?

    I suspect this was an inside job. The most likely reason being that the Elite are realizing that we unwashed masses are finally on to them and their agenda. Thus a decision was made that these stones had to come down because they were too obvious of a statement of the true agenda of the WEF Elite.

    • totally agree
      (so many things do not fit in the whole story from beginning; I think the same owner/s of the garden and/or of the stones simply decided to tear it down)

  5. As to the Guidestones, you are probably correct. The very short video of the blast shows a flash of the street light immediately before the blast, and there seems to be a few frames missing between the flash and the smoke cloud, though the seconds counter doesn’t have missing time.
    Another site (.mil / veterans focussed) suggested that the blast looked like an RPG or anti-tank weapon. The flash of glare at the street light could be the exhaust of a weapon.
    That the .gov tore down the remaining stones of the henge before any proper crime scene evidence collection or analysis could be conducted. Blast at 4 AM, backhoe that afternoon. Maybe they don’t want to have solid evidence of who did it. Hmmm.
