“Europe on the Brink: “ 70,000 Czech Protesters Flood Prague Over Energy Crisis

More than 70,000 Czechs are protesting in Prague, the capital, demanding the ruling coalition take a neutral stance on the Ukraine war to ensure energy supplies from Russia aren’t cut off ahead of winter. Protesters are outraged at the European Union for sanctions against Russia that have sparked soaring electricity bills and triggered a cost-of-living crisis.

“The aim of our demonstration is to demand change, mainly in solving the issue of energy prices, especially electricity and gas, which will destroy our economy this autumn,” event organizer Jiri Havel told local news iDNES and quoted by Reuters.

The protest, held at Wenceslas Square in the heart of the capital, comes one day after the Czech government survived a no-confidence vote over opposition claims of inaction to protect citizens against energy hyperinflation.

“Exorbitant Rise in Energy Prices” Forces Europe’s Top Steelmaker to Close Plants

Even though European power and natural gas prices have subsided this week, Germany, the largest economy in the bloc, still faces historically high energy costs that have forced cuts in industrial output.

The latest example is the world’s largest steelmaker, ArcelorMittal, which released a statement Friday about shutting down two plants and idling one.

Europe’s top steelmaker said two plants in Germany (one in Bremen and the other in Hamburg) would be partially closed at the end of September. A plant in Asturias, Spain, will also be idled.

Dutch Inflation Jumps to 13.6%; To Remain High for a While: DNB President

Daily life in the Netherlands was 13.6 percent more expensive in August than the same month last year, Statistics Netherlands (CBS) reported. Inflation in the Netherlands and the rest of the eurozone has been high for months, and that will be the case for a while yet, expects Klaas Knot, president of De Nederlandsche Bank (DNB).

At 13.6 percent, inflation was even higher than in July. Sharply rising gas and electricity prices are the main culprits. But those higher energy costs are also increasingly affecting food prices. According to CBS, food, drink, and tobacco were almost 11 percent more expensive in August than in the same month last year.

Sweden, Austria Start Bailing Out Energy Companies Triggering Europe’s “Minsky Moment”

Last weekend, Credit Suisse repo guru published what may have been the most insightful snippet of the entire European energy crisis (to date) when he extended the infamous “Minsky Moment” framework to Europe, and specifically Germany, which he said “can’t cover its payments without Russian gas and the government is asking citizens to conserve energy to leave more for industry.” He then elaborated that “Minsky moments are triggered by excessive financial leverage, and in the context of supply chains, leverage means excessive operating leverage: in Germany, $2 trillion of value added depends on $20 billion of gas from Russia… …that’s 100-times leverage — much more than Lehman’s.” (Zoltan’s entire note is a must read for everyone with a passing interest in what comes next).

But while Germany still pretends it can somehow avoid a devastating crisis this winter besides bailing out Uniper, one of the country’s biggest utilities (after all, admission would make Trump’s 2018 warning accurate and prescient, and everyone knows that according to Western intellectual snobs Trump can’t possibly ever be correct), other European nations are succumbing to what Zoltan dubbed a “supply-chain Minsky moment.”

“They Are Trying to Assassinate”: Bannon Accuses Biden of Stirring Anti-Right Hatred After Home ‘SWATed’ Again

Authored by Eva Fu via The Epoch Times (emphasis ours),

Former White House adviser Steve Bannon has accused President Joe Biden of stoking hatred after police descended on Bannon’s Washington home over a fake report of a gunman on the loose. The incident occurred shortly before Biden’s Thursday speech attacking MAGA Republicans.

Firefighters and police officers were sent to Bannon’s home on Sept. 1 evening, where he broadcasts his “War Room” radio program, DC’s Metropolitan Police Department told The Epoch Times. They left after finding no shots fired and no one hurt.

It was the second time Bannon has been a victim of swatting, a harassment tactic of calling the emergency police line with a false claim of criminal activity so as to dispatch a law enforcement team to a particular address. Such practices can be traumatizing for the targeted person and have turned fatal in the past.

5-Month-Old Baby Injured in Shooting

The Tampa Police Department is investigating a shooting that left an infant injured on Saturday.

Shortly after 1 PM on September 3, 2022, officers were called to a home located on the 8300 block of 17th St in Tampa in reference to a 5-month-old baby who was shot in the hip. The child was immediately transported by EMS to Tampa General Hospital. At this time, the child’s injuries do not appear to be life threatening.

Paula Marie Concepcion Santos, 25, and a 3-year-old child were in the home at the time of the incident. According to Concepcion Santos, the 3 year old accidently fired the gun after getting ahold of the weapon. Detectives are still working through the details to determine how the shooting occurred. Concepcion Santos was arrested and charged with child neglect with great bodily harm.

Amazon Shuts Down Reviews of Its Highly-Criticized Rings of Power Series

Amazon’s billion-dollar fantasy series Lord of the Rings: The Rings of Power has delayed showing reviews for the new show after receiving negative reviews from viewers.

Just one day after the first two episodes premiered on Prime Video, on Rotten Tomatoes, the series has an average audience score of 37%. Reviews on Amazon have reportedly been suspended to “weed out trolls,” suggesting that criticism of the show, which is accused by some of bastardizing the lore that J.R.R. Tolkien created, is not legitimate.

Amazon appears to be trying to protect itself against fallout after allegedly spending over $1 billion on the production of the show.

A source at the company told The Hollywood Reporter that reviews of the series have been suspended and are being held for 72 hours to remove “trolls” and to ensure that all reviews are legitimate.

It’s not clear how Amazon plans to ensure the criticism is “legitimate.”

In comparison, the series has an average score of 83% on Rotten Tomatoes from critics.

Feds on Parade: Mysterious Patriot Front Members March in Khakis and Masks in Indianapolis (Video)

The mysterious Patriot Front group marched in Indianapolis today for Labor Day.

The boys were out in the khakis and blue T-shirts again. They were all wearing masks.

The group invested in several flags for today’s march. It would be interesting to discover who paid for the travel, the flags and the uniforms.

New ATF Document Reveals Gun Owners Who Own ‘Pistol Braces’ Could be Forced to Register

Readers know the Biden administration has weaponized the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms, and Explosives (ATF) to wage war on law-abiding gun owners and manufacturers.

AmmoLand News reported the latest move by the ATF could force law-abiding gun owners who own pistol braces to register them with the federal government.

The plan (or request) for a registry of pistol braces was buried within a document about a budget justification from the ATF to the Office of Management and Budget (OMB). Here’s what the document says:

Due to the upcoming Amnesty Registration of Pistol Brace weapons, photos of the weapon being registered will be required to prove the weapon does utilize a pistol brace in its configuration and would qualify for an amnesty registration.”

EU Politicians Intentionally Drive Up Energy Prices

Policy decisions by the EU are leading to increased energy prices. A leaked strategy report by a large German company, showed how politics and business are deliberately influencing prices on the energy market — to the detriment of end consumers.

The report, quoted by Austrian weekly Wochenblick, revealed for example that the allocation of Co2 certificates has reached a new level, German nuclear power plants will not be reopened, France’s nuclear power plants are intentionally producing less and the German gas surcharges increase the relevant price for electricity. Of course, the suicide sanctions against Russia are also helping to drive up prices.

The Kremlin’s refusal to declare a state funeral reflects its uneasiness about the legacy of Gorbachev, who has been venerated worldwide for bringing down the Iron Curtain but reviled by many at home for the Soviet collapse and the ensuing economic meltdown that plunged millions into poverty.

Taiwanese Billionaire Puts Up $32 Million to Train Army of ‘Civilian Warriors’ Against Chinese Invasion

The founder of a major microchip producer has reinstated his Taiwanese citizenship and pledged to spend $32 million of his own money to train “civilian warriors” to prepare for a Chinese invasion.

Wearing a bulletproof vest, billionaire Robert Tsao, founder of United Microelectronics Corp, announced at a Thursday press conference that the Chinese Communist Party’s threat to Taiwan was growing. The 75-year-old says he plans to train “three million people in three years,” and will work with the island’s civilian defense organization — the Kuma Academy.

“Given the Chinese Communist Party’s record of atrocities against its own people and its brutal domination of those like the Uyghurs who are not even Chinese, the CCP’s threats have only ignited among the Taiwanese people a bitter hatred against this threatening enemy, and a shared determination to resist,” he said in a prepared statement.

Australian Academy of Science Demands Social Media Platforms Ban Climate “Misinformation”

In a public submission to tech giants in the 2022 review of the Australian Code of Practice on Misinformation and Disinformation, the Australian Academy of Science and the Australian Academy of Technology and Engineering called on online platforms to crack down on “climate denialism misinformation.”

The academies want online platforms to fight what it calls “climate denialism” by “actively promoting reliable, peer-reviewed, and appropriately labeled material from trusted sources.”

‘Seven Hundred’ Migrants Including Tiny Babies and a Woman in a Wheelchair Have Crossed the Channel So Far Today as Total Number to Have Landed in the UK This Year Already Rockets Past 25,000

Around 700 migrants were intercepted crossing the English Channel in small boats as the total number of people who have illegally landed into the UK this year has surpassed 25,000.

The approximately 700 individuals arrived at the Port of Dover in Kent on Saturday, Mail Online sources confirmed. Photographs show young children, sleeping infants and a woman in a wheel chair among the arrivals.

Government officials were unable to confirm the exact number of Saturday arrivals as processing is still under way. However, the Ministry of Defence did confirm five boats carried 221 migrants into the country on Friday.

£120m ‘Festival of Brexit’ Infested With Woke Events on Childhood ‘Gender Fluidity’ And Decolonising Gardening

The so-called ‘Festival of Brexit’ intended to promote the United Kingdom post-European Union, funded by taxpayers to the tune of £120 million, is infested with woke events featuring drag queens and harping on the imperial roots of gardening — and failing to attract visitors.

While Leave-voting members of the public may have expected that the generously-funded event, rebranded ‘Unboxed: Creativity in the UK’ under Boris Johnson, the supposed Brexit Prime Minister, would be a World’s Fair style showcase of the best of British manufacturing and traditional culture. what their money has actually bought seems very far from any such vision.

Virginia Teacher Sues District Over Pronoun Policy: They Think They Know Better Than Parents

A group of parents and teachers in Virginia are suing Harrisonburg City Public Schools to temporarily block a pronoun policy that prevents teachers from “misgendering” a student or disclosing to a parent if a child picks pronouns that adhere to a different sex than the one they were born with.

Deb Figliola, one of the teachers involved in the lawsuit, joined “Fox & Friends First” Friday to elaborate on her fight for parental rights in the classroom.

“I fought back because I basically don’t want to lie to kids,” Figliola said. “I don’t want to lie to the parents. I want to make sure that the people who are most important in their lives are involved in their lives.”

  1. Dutch inflation jumps to 13.6 % ………

    That is a load of nonsense. Im on a tight budget and see the minced /ground meat (cheapest red meat ) is up from E4,90 to E9,90 per kg ( 100 % ) . The cheapest tinned sardines from Morocco is up from 79c toE1,29 ( 60 % ), eggs from 1,20 to 1,99 for 10 (80 % ) . Fruit and vegies up at least 50 % . That is priced at ALDI or Albert Heinz chain supermarkets. Gas is up so high in the 100s of % that I bought a cheap 2 plate electric stove and that has saved me a lot too. As of gas heating, Im shutting it down for winter and will go electric or Agga stove if I must.

  2. Ukraine. An incident at a weapons exhibition.

    The footage captured the moment of the explosion of a grenade launcher in Chernihiv

    There, yesterday, a child came to a weapons exhibition, grabbed an RPG-18 grenade launcher, which was freely available without guards, and accidentally fired into the crowd.

    Eight people were injured, including four children. One child is in critical condition.

    Such a mess. Not surprisingly, weapons supplied by the West end up in the hands of illegal arms dealers.

  3. URGENT ANNOUNCEMENT

    URGENT ANNOUNCEMENT

    “And until people notices —because some people think the TV is God himself—, and turn off the TV and read a report coming from a professor working in a public university in Spain, that says that there is solid evidence, more than verifiable, that there is a derivative of graphene, specifically graphene oxide.

    Only then they will say: “OK, if graphene oxide causes us within the body thrombi, thrombogenicity, blood coagulating action, alteration of the immune system —that is, when there are more graphene oxide toxicants than glutathione in reserve, it causes the collapse of the immune system and cytokine storm—, if it spreads by inhalation uniformly through the lungs and generates bilateral pneumonias…” People will ask: “What is this?” What does this sound like to me? To me, the disease sounds like severe COVID-19 to me; the real, unique, extraordinary severe COVID-19.”

    So, people will understand that all the protective elements that have been provided to the population, like the masks that had graphene nanoparticles and they were withdrawn, do you recall? But they are still being marketed to this day!

    Yesterday we discovered two companies in Spain. One has quickly withdrawn the item from the store, but will be denounced anyway because it has already contacted FACUA communication and consumer service agencies. The masks, the PCR tests, probably the antigen tests, in the anti-flu vaccination, in the new intranasal vaccines made by Nanografi, all of them contain graphene oxide. So how is it possible? Carlos and those people who are listening to me: how is it possible that after those masks that were withdrawn because they contained graphene oxide and caused lung diseases, graphene oxide has been introduced in the vials, in those famous anti-COVID vaccines anyway?

    This would certainly be something for Baron Bodissey to explore.

    Yesterday’s video with Dr Ruby on Stew Peters’ show has gone viral.
    A Serbian subscriber saw it and put me onto the source, a group in Spain called “La Quinta Columna” (“The 5th Column”), who put out this video by biostatistician, Ricardo Delgado. It is an excellent Spanish-language resource, along with Orwell.city, which did the English-language translation of this video (upon which I improved, slightly).
    Delgado and his team of scientists have concluded that the symptoms of “COVID-19” are, in fact the symptoms of graphene oxide poisoning and that the graphene oxide nanoparticles discovered in the Pfizer vials by Dr. Pablo Campra Madrid at the University of Almería are also found in surgical masks, thus confirming of the suspicions of a British doctor, featured here last April. Surgical masks produced by Shandong Shenquan New Materials were taken off the market in Spain by the national health authority, Sanidad last April, due to the discovery of graphene oxide.
    In addition, the 5th Column confirms other videos posted here last March, that graphene oxide is found in the testing swabs used in both the PCR and the antigen tests, as well as in all the flu shots after 2019.
    In other words, everybody using Chinese surgical masks and taking COVID tests has been getting hit with graphene oxide – not just the vaccinated people!
    This video also mentions that that NAC (N-acetyl cysteine), an antioxidant food supplement that is a precursor to glutathione, counters the toxic effects of graphene oxide and has also been shown to cure “COVID” in scientific studies.

    Glutathione is found in very high levels in children. Therefore, “COVID” has hardly any impact on the child population. Glutathione levels drop considerably after 65 years of age, which is why “COVID” is more prevalent in older people.
