Gates of Vienna News Feed 9/16/2022

Florida Governor Ron DeSantis flew fifty illegal migrants to Martha’s Vineyard, causing a severe crisis. The island’s homelessness director said that there is no way to accommodate the arrivals, because there is a lack of affordable housing. Meanwhile, the governor of Massachusetts sent in 125 members of the National Guard, who flew the immigrants to temporary housing on a military base on Cape Cod.

In other news, representatives of European heavy industry warned the European Commission that the current energy crisis could result in the permanent de-industrialization of the EU if urgent action is not taken.

1.3 Million Jobs Were Result of Double-Counting This Year, Heritage Economist Says

Authored by Andrew Moran via The Epoch Times (emphasis ours)

The monthly U.S. jobs reports have topped market estimates many times this year, including the July and August non-farm payrolls reports, which showed 528,000 and 315,000 new jobs, respectively, higher than what many economists and analysts had initially projected.

White House officials have taken victory laps on the data, noting that these numbers are proof the economy is strong and that President Joe Biden’s policies are supporting post-pandemic growth.

But economists had questions about discrepancies between Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS) data and the various labor-related numbers revealed throughout the month. Plus, why has the Federal Reserve’s quantitative tightening campaign failed to diminish labor demand?

Several experts may have determined what is causing better-than-expected labor numbers. The answer may have to do with double-counting.

Bank Robbers Become Heroes Amid Lebanon’s Financial Crisis

Lebanon citizens have been forced to become armed bank robbers to withdraw their own money from their bank accounts, while fellow citizens look on and applaud.

The dire situation comes to light in a viral video where a woman claims she had to “rob her bank” at gunpoint to withdraw her own money. She was forced to become a bank robber to pay for her sister’s cancer treatment, but she later told the media the gun was a toy.

According to a report from Al Jazeera, “In August, an armed man also held employees and customers hostage at a Beirut bank after he was told he could not withdraw $200,000 from his account for his sick father’s treatment.”

“The man was cheered on by a crowd outside the bank.”

Alex Jones Rants That Judge From his Sandy Hook Trial Who Ordered Him to Pay $45m in Damages is a George Soros Operative Because She Has ‘Purple and Blue Hair’

Alex Jones once again claimed that the judge from his Sandy Hook trial who ordered him to pay $45million in damages is a George Soros operative because she has ‘purple and blue hair.’

During a rant on Steven Crowder’s YouTube show, Jones made a rambling argument that Judge Maya Guerra Gamble ‘admits’ she is a tool of the liberal megadonor on Facebook.

Although Crowder told Jones he mostly agreed with him, he did push back on his claim that Gamble admitted being a Soros operative on her Facebook page. Crowder warned Jones that would be an accusation the media will ‘take out of context.’

Jones continued to argue that Gamble has ‘purple, blue hair and has all these Soros-funded PACs on the site. And she gets money out of the packs that are funded by Soros.’

He accused the city of Austin, where the ruling was made, of being a ‘Soros bastion’ but Crowder again clarified that Gamble did not literally call herself a Soros operative.

However, Jones did eventually calm down enough to agree that Gamble ‘did not say ‘I am a Soros operative.’ You’re correct.’

Crowder responded by joking, ‘You don’t know if Soros paid for her blue hair dye. We cannot confirm nor deny, but we’ll assume so.’

Calls Grow Among Prominent Figures to Create a New ‘Church Committee’ To Probe FBI Abuses

A half century ago, Americans held grave concerns that J. Edgar Hoover’s FBI and other U.S. intelligence agencies had abused civil rights, improperly targeted enemies and illegally gathered evidence, so Congress set out on a great cleansing mission. It formed a special committee chaired by Idaho Sen. Frank Church that laid bare the wrongdoing, overhauled the bureau and created new guardrails to protect civil liberties.

A growing number of influential figures in Washington are arguing it’s time for another Church Committee after a tumultuous six years in which the FBI admitted it misled the FISA court while spying on Donald Trump’s campaign, had executives who lied, doctored evidence or usurped prosecutors’ authority, and employed agents who dropped the ball on a sexual abuse scandal involving Olympians and overcollected evidence in a raid of a former president’s home.

The revelation this week that the bureau secretly paid a Russian businessman as a confidential informant against Trump even though he was suspected of lying and having ties to the Kremlin’s intelligence agencies only accelerated support for a sweeping, independent probe of the FBI now under the control of Director Christopher Wray.

Facebook Blocks Holocaust Movie Beautiful Blue Eyes

Facebook has banned ads for Holocaust film Beautiful Blue Eyes. The film’s distributor MovieFarm, told the film’s director Joshua Newton that Facebook had banned the film’s ads for violating its policy against content that, “includes direct or indirect assertions or implications about a person’s race.”

The movie, which is Roy Scheider’s final performance, is said to be based on Newton’s father’s experiences as a holocaust survivor, as reported by Rolling Stone.

It centers on an NYPD officer who has been haunted by the murder of his family during World War II. He believes he has found the Nazi who killed his family and asks his son to help him in his quest for vengeance.

The film’s title references the eye color of a kid who was killed by Nazis. It is not clear why Facebook deemed the movie racist.

‘Fauci Knows’ He Funded Gain-of-Function Research, ‘Misled Congress, ‘ Former CDC Director Says

The former Center for Disease Control and Prevention director who was cast as a conspiracy theorist for saying the evidence supported the lab-leak explanation for COVID-19 — allegedly provoking death threats — claims that the real “conspiracy is Collins, Fauci, and the established scientific community.”

Robert Redfield told former Senate Finance Committee investigator Paul Thacker that National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases Director Dr. Anthony Fauci “knew” he funded gain-of-function research that makes viruses more dangerous, and “misled Congress” when he denied it,” but “[n]othing’s going to happen as long as the Biden administration is here.”

Fifth Circuit Rejects First Amendment Challenge to Texas Social Media Common Carrier Law

Just released, Netchoice v. Paxton; I’m traveling and likely won’t have time to digest the 113 pages of opinions for a while, but here’s the opening from Judge Andrew Oldham’s opinion, which is a majority on most points:

A Texas statute named House Bill 20 generally prohibits large social media platforms from censoring speech based on the viewpoint of its speaker. The platforms urge us to hold that the statute is facially unconstitutional and hence cannot be applied to anyone at any time and under any circumstances.

In urging such sweeping relief, the platforms offer a rather odd inversion of the First Amendment. That Amendment, of course, protects every person’s right to “the freedom of speech.” But the platforms argue that buried somewhere in the person’s enumerated right to free speech lies a corporation’s unenumerated right to muzzle speech.

The implications of the platforms’ argument are staggering. On the platforms’ view, email providers, mobile phone companies, and banks could cancel the accounts of anyone who sends an email, makes a phone call, or spends money in support of a disfavored political party, candidate, or business. What’s worse, the platforms argue that a business can acquire a dominant market position by holding itself out as open to everyone—as Twitter did in championing itself as “the free speech wing of the free speech party.” Then, having cemented itself as the monopolist of “the modern public square,” Packingham v. North Carolina (2017), Twitter unapologetically argues that it could turn around and ban all pro-LGBT speech for no other reason than its employees want to pick on members of that community, Oral Arg. at 22:39—22:52.

Today we reject the idea that corporations have a freewheeling First Amendment right to censor what people say. Because the district court held otherwise, we reverse its injunction and remand for further proceedings.

Florida Woman Accused of Attempting to Murder Her Roommates After Stabbing Them Multiple Times, Deputies Say

MARION COUNTY, Fla. — A 31-year-old woman has been arrested for attempted first-degree murder after deputies found two people who were stabbed Friday morning.

Christina Adams, 31, was arrested shortly after the stabbing in Marion County after one of the victims called 911 to report the incident, deputies said.

When deputies responded to the 911 call around 8:03 a.m., one of the victims said Adams was the person who stabbed her and another person. Adams allegedly fled the scene, but was located by deputies near where the stabbing happened, deputies said.

Adams initially denied any involvement, but she later told detectives that she was “angry over being asked to leave the home that she shared with the victims.”

Adams then told detectives that she grabbed a large knife and then attacked both victims, stabbing them multiple times, deputies said.

She thought both victims were dead, she attempted to destroy evidence, and then left the scene, deputies said.

After the attack, Adams told detectives that she changed her clothes and went shopping. Deputies said they located Adams, who was driving back toward the location of the stabbing.

Adams was arrested on two counts of attempted first-degree murder and tampering with evidence. She is being held in the Marion County jail without bond.

In a press release shared exclusively with Breitbart News, Marco Rubio said the legislation would aim to protect “commuters, first responders, and other travelers on our nation’s roadways.” Though some states have adopted their own laws to protect against such protests, no federal law exists.

Marine Corps Rescinds Penalties for Service Members Seeking COVID Vax Religious Accommodations

The U.S. Marine Corps is rolling back strict punishments for service members seeking religious exemptions to the COVID-19 vaccine, including ending involuntary terminations and delays of promotions for some of those refusing the shot.

According to a new “interim guidance,” signed Sept. 14 and posted quietly online, the message “amends actions” directed toward unvaccinated Marines whose religious accommodation requests were denied and who appealed the decision.

The memo states that the amended guidance comes after a U.S. Federal District Court in Florida issued a preliminary injunction on Aug. 18 prohibiting the Marines from taking “certain actions” against those seeking religious exemptions.

The University of California, Los Angeles (UCLA) School of Law in August launched its “CRT Forward Tracking Project,” a database that will allow users to “track attacks on critical race theory” at the “local, state and federal levels.”

Launched over a year ago, CriticalRace.org houses a database that tracks critical race theory in higher education, private schools and medical schools.

Virginia Judge Dismisses Youth Climate Change Lawsuit

A Virginia judge on Friday dismissed a lawsuit filed on behalf of 13 young people who claim that the state’s permitting of fossil fuel projects is exacerbating climate change and violating their constitutional rights.

The lawsuit filed by Our Children’s Trust, an Oregon-based nonprofit public interest law firm, asked the court to declare portions of the Virginia Gas and Oil Act unconstitutional. It also seeks to find the state’s reliance on and promotion of fossil fuels violates the rights of the plaintiffs, who range in age from 10 to 19.

But Richmond Circuit Court Judge Clarence Jenkins Jr. granted the state’s request to dismiss the lawsuit, finding that the complaint is barred by sovereign immunity.

Will, Kankakee Counties File Lawsuit Over SAFE-T Act

WILL COUNTY, Ill. — Two lawsuits were filed by Will and Kankakee county officials Friday over the SAFE-T Act.

Officials in the counties claim the bill, signed by Gov. Pritzker, is unconstitutional.

The nearly 800-page bill eliminates cash bail in Illinois and that is set to begin on Jan. 1, 2023.

As election season roars, the bill has been described by conservatives as a “Purge law.” It’s become a central issue in GOP candidate for governor Darren Bailey’s campaign — framing cash bail elimination as a law that will make it difficult to detain accused offenders and allow criminals to run rampant.

Gov. Pritzker said the law implements necessary criminal justice reforms.

On Friday morning, Kankakee County State’s Attorney Jim Rowe filed a lawsuit naming two defendants — Illinois Attorney General Kwame Raoul and Gov. JB Pritzker.

The lawsuit says the SAFE-T “violates the single subject rule” which mandates that a piece of legislation contain only one topic. It also alleges the “statute is unconstitutionally vague” and that the general assembly violates the “separation of powers principle” by effectively changing the state constitution without a referendum or constitutional convention.

Caroline Glick: For Israel to be Safe it Must Bury the Oslo Delusion

The Deputy Commander of the IDF’s Nahal Reconnaissance Unit, Maj. Bar Falah, was killed Tuesday night when two Palestinian terrorists, one an officer in the U.S.-funded and trained Palestinian Authority security services, opened fire on Falah and his soldiers. Falah’s soldiers returned fire and killed the two men. Falah’s tragic death must precipitate a national reckoning with hard but obvious realities.

Major Falah and his soldiers were positioned by the Jalameh checkpoint in northern Samaria, close to the city of Jenin, which has been the hub of Palestinian terrorism, directed by Iran through its proxy Islamic Jihad for much of the past year. Jalameh is located adjacent to the checkpoint, which regulates traffic from northern Samaria crossing the 1949 armistice line.

Earlier that day, Palestinian terrorists had opened fire on IDF engineers carrying out work on the separation barrier, which blocks Palestinian terrorists from infiltrating Israeli population centers. That shooting was part of a steep rise in Palestinian terror attacks over the past several months. On Monday, Itamar Cohen, an Israeli shepherd, was attacked by a lynch mob of Palestinians and critically injured by a scythe near the Maon Farm in the South Hebron Hills.

Shin Bet Director Ronen Bar said this week that terror attacks have risen 30% over the past year. According to Channel 14, inn the past month alone, Palestinians carried out 70 shooting attacks and hundreds of firebomb and rock assaults against Israelis in Judea and Samaria. Terror has also risen in Jerusalem and throughout the rest of the country.

In other words, when Falah and his soldiers identified two suspicious men crouching near their position, they had every reason to assume that they were terrorists planning to attack them. And they did. But the IDF’s high command reportedly rejected their assessment…

AI Image Generator in China Blocks “Sensitive” Terms Like “Tiananmen Square, “ “British Government”

ERNIE-ViLG, a text-to-image AI developed by Chinese tech firm Baidu, blocks Tiananmen Square and other politically sensitive names. Tiananmen Square is likely being blocked because of the Tiananmen Massacre, which is heavily censored in China.

A demo of the image-making Ai was released in August on Hugging Face, and users quickly noticed that some words, which are sensitive in political contexts, were labeled as “sensitive” and blocked.

Users got the warning: “Sensitive words found. Please enter again.”

Since September, the warning has been reworded to: “The content entered doesn’t meet relevant rules. Please try again after adjusting it.”

Single Photo Exposes the Major Issue With Electric Cars Amid Fears They Could Become a ‘Lawyer’s Picnic’

Astonishing footage has put a spotlight on the potential dangers of electric vehicles amid fears they could become ‘a lawyer’s picnic’.

An electric car parked on a street in Manly, on Sydney’s northern beaches, was spotted being charged by a lengthy trail of power cord.

The cable loops over the front fence, which snakes from the road up a driveway and into a nearby home.

The owner even kindly installed a hazard cover over the section of the cord running across the public footpath so locals don’t trip over the cord while walking past.

A close-up photo shows the car surrounded by electrical cables.

  1. How much does the position of homelessness director pay on Martha’s vineyard? Sounds like good job if the pay is good. Is US citizenship or a green card required? I think he was fearing some outsourced competition.

  2. no affordable housing in Martha’s Vineyard? Who would have guessed.
    That very space should be available on Cape Cod? In both places, the liberal dogooders may enjoy the presence of cultural enrichement other than an opening night at a fine art gallery or a saturday trophy tournement at their country club.

  3. In Central Asia, another mess. Tajiks vs Kirghiz. Previously, all these problems were resolved by Russia. I looked through the thematic telegram channels. The Kirghiz are Turks, they are helped by Turkey. Tajiks are a people related to the Persians, they seem to be assisted by the Iranians. Afghanistan (also related to the Tajiks) and drug trafficking are pressing in from the south.
