Cashing in on the ChiCom Flu

Instead of commercial email services, I maintain my own mail server and use it for most of my email accounts. As a result, I have to deal with a lot of spam — I don’t get the low-spam benefits that Gmail or Yahoo customers enjoy.

For years spammers have been taking advantage of not-so-bright preppers. At least that’s what it seems like, based on the amount of “tactical” this-and-that spam I have to deal with. But for the last month or so the coronavirus-related scams have been appearing more and more in the flow of spam. Face masks in particular seem to be a hot item for spammers, and also disinfectants and other commercial products related to medical hygiene.

I’m posting the email below because of its astounding chutzpah — not only does this “Israeli scientist” want to sell some sort of anti-coronavirus snake oil, but he is charging $3,000 for two bottles of it!

And buyers are required to pay him in Bitcoin, of all things.

You have to wonder how brisk business is for this enterprising fellow (or chick — there’s no way to tell):

Coronavirus Drug Update: The Latest Info On Pharmaceutical Treatments And Vaccines

Coronavirus Resource Center

The rapid spread of the virus that causes COVID-19 has sparked alarm worldwide. The World Health Organization (WHO) has declared this rapidly spreading coronavirus outbreak a pandemic, and many countries are grappling with a rise in confirmed cases. In the US, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) is advising people to be prepared for disruptions to daily life that will be necessary if the coronavirus spreads within communities.

An Israeli scientist works at a laboratory at the MIGAL Research Institute in northern Israel, where efforts are underway to produce a vaccine against the coronavirus adapted from one for infectious bronchitis virus, on March 1, 2020. To boost the immune system, physicians can use drugs like interferons. These are signaling proteins that serve as alarm bells in the body, activating an immune response. Interferons have been used to treat autoimmune diseases and viral hepatitis. “It’s a double-edged sword,” said Shi from the University of Texas Medical Branch. “If you activate them at the wrong time or if you activate it too much, it causes a lot of inflammation, which can cause disease.”

So to treat a virus, doctors have to balance attacking the virus directly without causing any collateral damage to the body, or they have to strengthen the body’s defenses while preventing the virus from causing even more harm. Interferons have already been used to treat Covid-19 cases in China, but it’s unclear how effective they are on their own.

After our research at the MIGAL Institute in northern Israel, we are able to produces drugs for coronavirus.

This drugs is to help you prevent coronavirus ONLY.

Here’s a drugs to some of the most talked-about efforts to treat or prevent coronavirus infection, with details on the science, history, and timeline for each endeavor.

We present two bottles of a natural covidrug which also come with coronavirus emergency kit to you today.

Religion vs Religion

In his latest essay, our Israeli correspondent MC wades into the deepest swamps of the Culture Wars.

Religion vs Religion

by MC

Perhaps my love of America and all things American has its roots in the regular supply of US comics sent to my brother and me by various relatives in the ’50s and ’60s, and amongst which was the occasional edition of MAD magazine.

Much of MAD was over my young head, but Spy vs Spy was always amusing and sticks in my mind, especially their pointed snouts clamped together when investigating a box (trap) from opposite sides.

However, Religion vs (political) Religion is not so amusing, nor is it confined to ink and paper, for the successful side of Western culture is defined by its (Christian) religion, and its demise is defined by the political religions which seek to destroy Christianity and all that goes with it.

The Christian revolution (I am not a Christian but I believe in the Bible) occurred when the Bible was translated into local languages and printed for all to read, and the Church was dragged out of its roots of feudalism (slavery) into what became democracy and even republicanism.

An important part of this process was the separation of Church and State; the Church having been responsible for many abuses that had held the communities of Europe in thrall for over a thousand years.

The feudal system over which the Church held suzerainty was a typical product of tyranny: a small elite, the aristocracy, owning most of the people as serfs, to do with as they please, and a tiny middle class of tradesmen to manufacture those things consumed by their betters. This was just a slight variation on the ‘warlord’ culture that has run most of the world from time immemorial and to this day in some places.

In the UK the feudal system was broken first by the Black Death, which killed off some 30% of the workforce. The subsequent competition for labour destroyed the idea of ‘ownership’ of people. Secondly, and as a consequence of this pandemic, a growing equality of opportunity was provided by increasing access to quality education. Ex-slaves and serfs used their newfound freedom to better themselves.

Under the feudal system, the church provided education and the higher-IQ peasant children were syphoned off into the cloisters. To a great extent this provided the stability required as potential peasant leaders were ‘kidnapped’ into religion (Janissaries, anybody?). Heresy invited a death penalty and life was cheap. In feudal times the Church was very much a political religion, and the Pope reigned over all the monarchs of Europe.

All this emerging freedom from under the tyranny of political religion, however, took hundreds of years to get to the idea of individual liberty. The cultural and economic impacts were minimised by being spread over such a genteel timescale. My paternal grandfather was a boy coalminer at age 12, but his sons went to grammar schools, receiving a quality education, and his youngest son even got a bachelor’s degree in engineering.

But do not think that the ‘elites’ did not fight back. Their main ploy was to create another politicized version of the feudal system that the church had failed to sustain. This took the form of ‘socialism’ where the elite claimed to be working in the best interests of the ‘working class’ by controlling all aspects of their lives. This was yet another political religion, of which we have now seen quite a few forms. Each causes its own mayhem, because there is no separation between political religion and state, and thus there is nothing to stop the killing when it inevitably starts.

Kirk Douglas, Zionist

The following article from Italy was translated by FouseSquawk. After I read it, out of curiosity I looked up the wiki on Kirk Douglas. He was a Jew, and a lifelong Democrat. Some of his charitable gifts were directed to Israel, but not overmuch for an American Jew who supports the state of Israel. So I don’t get the preoccupation with his “Zionism”.

The translator includes this note:

Not everybody is mourning the death of Kirk Douglas, the famed American actor who died on Wednesday at the age of 103. Gabriele Rubini, better known in Italy as Chef Rubio, is attacking Douglas as a Zionist. Rubini is a supporter of the Palestinian cause, and is reportedly spending time in Gaza to support the Palestinian people, etc. etc.

Please note that Rubini a.k.a. Rubio makes a few comments in the Roman dialect, which I was unable to translate. They are in parentheses.

The translated article from Il Giornale:

Chef Rubio against Kirk Douglas: “A Zionist has died”

Chef Rubio posted on Twitter against Kirk Douglas, dead yesterday: “One of the greatest Zionist actors in history has died. Thanks to him religious and historical revisionism was possible also in film.”

by Roberto Vivaldelli
February 6, 2020

Gone from television, Chef Rubio has turned to Twitter to yet again put out polemics inflaming social networks.

In the sights of the most talked-about cook in Italy this time is Kirk Douglas, dead yesterday at the age of 103. The legendary actor and producer, born Issur Danielovitch Demsky in Amsterdam (New York) on December 9, 1916 into a very poor family of Russian-Jewish emigrants, was “saluted” by Chef Rubio in a farewell tweet that is causing much discussion. “One of the greatest Zionist actors in history is dead. Thanks to him, religious and historical revisionism has been possible also in films, and the public, cuddled by lies, has thus stopped asking questions and passively accepts everything.”

This time, however, even those who follow him are rapping him, and he replies thusly: “ I have written it often, and I repeat it in the farewell. It is also because of him, his funding, and how history and religion has been presented on film with his face, if today we are like this, and if public opinion does not fight for the only people in the world still under siege (Palestinians).” But the controversy on Twitter continues, and Chef Rubio doesn’t give in and goes on the counterattack. This time in Roman [dialect]: “When you speak the truth, they break your [manly member], there is nothing to do. Even if in 2020, #Chef Rubio, according to the Zionists, is suddenly an a*****e, Kirk’s poranima in 2016 was praised and celebrated by the Zionist comrades. Words fly, social remains #sionistisquadrish#fascisti” And still in another tweet, also in Roman [dialect], “What then I don’t say that er poro Kirk was a Zionist. The facts say it! It makes me laugh that the Zionists are ashamed of them and if you (say) this, they make you an anti-Semite. Don’t you want to be told that you are oppressed fascists? Stop being (that way).”

Dore Gold Speaks About Jew-Hatred in Europe

Dore Gold is an Israeli diplomat, a former ambassador who is currently the President of the Jerusalem Center for Public Affairs.

The following video was recorded during the same event in Italy at which Matteo Salvini spoke. In it Mr. Dore discusses Jew-hatred in Europe, and also the threat to Israel posed by Iran. He is speaking in English, but the Italian voice-over in the video all but obliterates the audio of his remarks.

Matteo Salvini’s Complete Speech on Israel and Jew-Hatred

On Monday I posted an excerpt from a speech about Jew-hatred given in the Italian Senate by former Italian Interior Minister Matteo Salvini. The video below shows the entirety of Mr. Salvini’s remarks.

The full text hasn’t completely assuaged my reservations about outlawing opposition to the existence of the State of Israel. I can (grudgingly) admit to a very narrow window of necessity to criminalize any interference in the execution of a sovereign state’s foreign policy as it pertains to Israel — but that’s it. And even that gives me First Amendment heartburn.

In any case, the complete speech is now available, and you can judge for yourselves. Many thanks to FouseSquawk for the translation, and to Vlad Tepes for the subtitling:

Matteo Salvini Speaks Out Against Jew-Hatred

I have a high regard for Matteo Salvini, the former Italian Interior Minister and the leader of the Lega. However, in the following video (which is an excerpt from a speech given on January 16 in the Italian Senate) there is a significant point on which I disagree with him.

Among other things, Mr. Salvini puts forward the idea that it should be against the law to “oppose the existence of the State of Israel as the home of the Jewish people”. There are several reasons why I find this idea repugnant.

Firstly, as far as I know, the only such laws being proposed concern the Jewish people and Israel. I don’t think anyone wants to criminalize, say, opposition to the creation of Kurdistan as a homeland for the Kurds. And there are so many others — Frisia, the Sami, the Navajo, Tibet, Chechnya, and Baluchistan, just to name a few. Should we pass laws against opposition to the creation (or re-establishment) of homelands for all those peoples? If not, how can we pass laws against opposing the State of Israel and still keep any semblance of fairness?

Secondly, as a dyed-in-the-wool American I have a deep loathing for any legal restrictions on speech. I’m willing to concede that it may be a good idea to outlaw explicit, direct, and immediate incitement to violence, but that’s about it. I find Jew-hatred to be vile, but I think Jew-haters should be able to express their vitriol whenever they want without legal hindrance.

This video is a brief segment from a much longer speech. Vlad thinks a complete transcript might show that Mr. Salvini only intends to criminalize organizations that attempt to interfere with Italian foreign policy concerning the sovereign State of Israel. If that turns out to be the case, then it’s a somewhat different matter. But for the nonce all we have is what you see below.

Many thanks to FouseSquawk for the translation, and to Vlad Tepes for the subtitling:

Below is an interview with Mr. Salvini on the same topic from La Stampa, also translated by FouseSquawk:

Salvini: “Anti-Semitism in Italy? It’s the fault of Muslim immigrants”

Ex-minister of Interior: “With me as prime minister, Jerusalem will be recognized as capital of Israel”

Tel Aviv: If he becomes prime minister, Matteo Salvini will recognize Jerusalem as the capital of Israel. That is what the secretary of the Lega said in an interview today with the newspaper Israel Ha-Yoom, in which he called on the EU to ban BDS, the boycott movement against Israel. A few days after the Senate conference on anti-Semitism, Salvini has reiterated to the newspaper — considered close to Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu — that the Lega has no ties with political organizations like Casa Pound, Forza Nuova and Fiamma, which are defined by the newspaper as “anti-Semitic.”

To a question about the resurgence of anti-Semitism in Europe, which will be discussed January 22-23 on the 75th anniversary of the liberation of Auschwitz, Salvini said, “In my opinion, this has to do with the strengthening of extremism and Islamic fanaticism in recent years. It is very important to stress,” he added, “that this is connected to the fact that certain elements in the academic world and the media are mobilized against Israel and they create a hatred towards Israel in order to justify anti-Semitism.”

“Currently, the massive presence of immigrants coming from Muslim countries,” he continued after also recalling the existence of minor political Nazi and communist political movements, contributes to the spread of anti-Semitism also in Italy. “There is,” he complained, “an anti-Semitism on the extreme right and the extreme left. We think of Jeremy Corbyn or leftist activists in Germany who don’t want to be like the Nazis, yet they are found boycotting Israeli products.” To a question on the relations of the Lega with “anti-Semitic political groups”, Salvini answered that “we have no connections with those organizations. In the elections, parties like Casa Pound, Forza Nuova, and Fiamma come out against us.” This shows “we have no ties to them.”

The Iranian Heydrich

Ehud Yahari is an Israeli journalist and political commentator. In the following video from Israeli TV Mr. Yahari asserts that the killing of Qasem Soleimani — the Iranian general who was killed in a targeted attack in Iraq a few days ago — is the most significant political assassination, from a Jewish perspective, since the killing of Reinhard Heydrich during the Second World War.

The Forbidden City

Chances are, anyone who is having the problem described below is unable to read this post.

I’ll explain what happened: Late Monday night I started to get reports on skype and by email that people were getting a “403” error when they tried to access Gates of Vienna. The actual text of the message varied, depending on the browser and operating system, but it would look something like this:

You don’t have permission to access this resource.

Additionally, a 403 Forbidden error was encountered while trying to use an ErrorDocument to handle the request.

Since I am a technical dunce when it comes to website mechanics, I consulted with Vlad Tepes and Henrik Clausen about what was happening. They looked into it, and it seemed that a crucial setting on the site was disabled for some reason, and needed to be enabled. Henrik enabled it, and over the next 36 hours people reported back to me that they were once again able to access Gates of Vienna. So everything was fixed.

But only for about 36 hours. I started getting messages today from the same people, and also additional ones, that the same error message was popping up when they tried to visit this site. It’s only happening in Europe and Israel, as far as I know. I’m getting no emails from the USA, Canada, or Australia about the “403 Forbidden” message. Countries affected include the UK, Germany, Denmark, Sweden, Hungary, Romania, and Israel. And probably others that I’m forgetting. But not on this side of the Atlantic.

I consulted at length with the hosting service, and the setting that Henrik enabled was still enabled. They can’t recreate the problem, since they’re in the USA. So there’s nothing more they can do unless I can give them specific instructions about what needs to be changed.

Something is fishy here. One time could be just a random glitch, but twice? And all within less than 48 hours.

My paranoid intuition says that when whatever it was the major ISPs in Europe tried to do two days ago failed — that is, when Henrik enabled the setting. So they decided to try something else to accomplish the same purpose. I don’t believe this is a coincidental, accidental malfunction — I think it is deliberate.

But then, I’m paranoid.

So… If you have friends, relatives, or acquaintances that report this problem, please explain what I have posted here. And most of the significant content I post is also posted at Vlad’s place, so they can go over there to stay somewhat up-to-date.

I don’t think this is an issue in the USA because not many people are very interested in what’s going on in Europe. I don’t report on Adam Schiff, Jerrold Nadler, Nancy Pelosi, Bill Barr, or any other facet of the impeachment circus. I leave that to the specialists, and that’s where all the American traffic tends to go.

But this blog has a wide readership in Europe. Or rather, had — I think my European traffic is probably significantly reduced by now.

It’s Poppy Time

It’s Poppy Time

by MC

“Religion is the opiate of the people,” said a man who was busy creating his own political religion.

Opioids are very dangerous and powerful drugs. They sit in the bodies’ pain receptors and calm them, but at the same time they distort those receptors so that that the bodies’ own natural painkillers no longer work. This is why ‘cold turkey’ is very painful.

Karl Marx was building a religion, a religion aimed at bringing down Judeo-Christianity and free market capitalism and replacing it with a revised form of secular feudalism and an associated cartelism.

He identified an enemy: the ‘class’ enemy, consisting of any nebulous personage who disagreed with his doctrine or offered a threat to it.

He also discarded conventional morality, a morality based upon the journey, not the destination. His doctrine held that the desirability of the destination justifies any immoral action required to get there.

In this, he, Marx, whether knowingly or unknowingly, was following the same path as his predecessor, Mohammed, over a thousand years earlier.

We do not have much actual history about Mohammed, but we can see the results of his religion. It, too, was primarily a political religion, and it, too, expanded massively and violently and without mercy. Convert, be enslaved or die.

And the ‘cold turkey’ of political religion is also very painful.

We are looking here at the highly intoxicating effects of the same, but deeper problem of humanity — the innate desire to be part of something, to enslave and maybe to be enslaved by a ‘good’ cause; to be part of something exciting.

Historians tend not to use the word ‘slave’. It is too emotive, so they use euphemisms: vassals, serfs, workers, peons, the proletariat, indentured servants, and the like. We reserve the word ‘slave’ for use when we want to emphasize a negative cause.

But slavery is the normal state of mankind, and what was so exceptional about the Bible was that it described the way Yahovah took His people out of slavery. That was the real revolution. It was that revolution that inspired Protestant Christianity in the West, along with the translation/printing of the bible in the common languages — the real revolutionaries being the likes of Luther, Tyndale, Cranmer, Latimer and Ridley, whose ideas led King James to authorise a public version of the Bible in English.

So the great British anti-slavery movement had its roots in the Exodus of the King James Bible, and likewise in the USA.

No Need to Turn Off the Lights and Don’t Bother Closing the Door

This week’s selection from Dymphna’s Greatest Hits discusses the antics of the Church of England as put on display back in June of 2005. I wish I could say that the situation in the Anglican Church has improved since then, but as far as I know it has deteriorated even further.

Note: Only one of the embedded links in the original post is still live. I had to remove the rest.

The Pharisees are in the driver’s seat of the Mini Cooper that has become the Anglican Church in England. Following the map printed up for them by the Anglican Peace and Justice Network, the C. of E. is busy driving over the cliff. How could anyone with a lick of common sense believe one word coming from a “Peace and Justice” committee? Did these people sleep through the birth and (Deo gratias) death of Communism? Do they not see the bright neon socialist signage in “Peace” or “Justice” — good Lord, never mind the double whammy PEACE and JUSTICE.

Does the Anglican Communion in England have any idea how irrelevant it is? The Incredible Shrinking Church has just shriveled another centimeter or two. It’s sooo bad it’s embarrassing. You could go read the report here (it’s a PDF. You’ll need version 7), but why bother. You can recite the p.c. lines from memory by now: poor Palestinians, bad Jews. Let’s take our money away from the bad Jews and give it to the deserving Palestinians who only want peace but the Jews are too mean to let them have it. Blah. Blah.

Well, we knew it was coming; this was just a matter of waiting for the final mainstream sheep farm to sell out. The only surprise is that it took so long. Here’s Melanie Phillips’ take on this “defining moment” —

The APJN report is full of the most inflammatory lies, libels and distortions about Israel — and the fact that the amended resolution that was finally passed only welcomed part of it (a weaselly caveat to provide deniability) does not alter the fact that it provided the ammunition for a poisonous onslaught against Israel. The document uncritically reproduced the Arab propaganda version of Israel’s history and the present circumstances of the Middle East conflict, presenting the Arab perpetrators of genocidal mass murder as victims and their real victims as oppressors merely for trying to defend themselves. But then what can one expect of a report which concludes by referring to ‘the honor of meeting the President of the Palestinian Authority, the late Yasser Arafat, who so warmly welcomed us in what turned out to be one of his last days among us’?

A warm welcome from the late pederast himself. How charming. Arafat was the father of terrorism, a diabolical Communist and one of the most truly evil people of his generation, so of course the Anglican Peace and Justice Network loved him. What’s not to love? Do you suppose they have a position paper on Castro, too? Another honorable sweetie-pie.

There are not words to describe the moral revulsion the name Arafat engenders. You could perhaps see why the naïve could be taken in by the man-in-the-street Palestinian: they’ve had years to work on and perfect their royal sense of resentful entitlement. And you might even decide to overlook the festering sores on a culture which produces suicide bombers who want to attack the hospital that treated them. But information on Arafat is readily available; his shameful history is there for the reading. One has to be willfully blind to refuse to acknowledge the depth and breadth of his malevolent iniquity.

A Second Son of Hamas Defects

Back in 2010 a Palestinian named Mosab Hassan Yousef caused a sensation by defecting from Hamas and converting to Christianity. His case was significant, because he was the son of Hassan Yousef, one of the founders of Hamas.

Now a second son of Hassan Yousef has made the news by defecting from Hamas. His name is Suhaib Yousef, and he differs from his brother in that he did not convert to Christianity, nor did he ever work for Israeli intelligence.

Suhaib moved to a South Asian country (it looks like it might be Malaysia or Indonesia) to live in exile, and there he agreed to meet with an Israeli journalist. The resulting documentary is below.

Hypocritical Jewish Organizations and the Armenian Genocide

Hypocritical Jewish Organizations and the Armenian Genocide

by David Boyajian

“It’s all about the Benjamins [$100 bills], baby,” Tweeted Congresswoman Ilhan Omar in February. She was the accusing super-wealthy AIPAC (American Israel Public Affairs Committee) of bribing Congress into supporting Israel.

AIPAC, ADL (Anti-Defamation League), AJC (American Jewish Committee), B’nai B’rith, and Congress condemned Omar as anti-Jewish.

2,153 persons at JewsWithIlhan.org, however, defended her.

AIPAC can’t legally donate to politicians. Its Congressional Club members, however, must do so. AIPAC members ‘bundle’ individual political contributions. Some AIPAC officials head political action committees (PACs) which back candidates. And an AIPAC affiliate flies Congresspersons to Israel.

After Israel, the Jewish organizations’ imperative is the Holocaust.

They’ve steered Holocaust legislation — regarding commemorations, education, monuments, museums, reparations, and war crimes — through Congress, state and foreign legislatures, and the U.N.

America has special Holocaust and Anti-Semitism envoys.

Diminishing/denying the Holocaust is a crime in many European countries.

Yet leading Jewish organizations have long diminished/denied the 1915—23 genocide Turkey committed against 1.5 million Christian Armenians on their ancient homeland.

Also, AIPAC, ADL, AJC, B’nai B’rith, and JINSA (Jewish Institute for National Security of America) have colluded with Turkey to defeat Armenian Genocide resolutions in Congress. Demanding Holocaust legislation while thwarting recognition of another genocide is hypocrisy and moral bankruptcy.

“The Holocaust,” says Israeli journalist Yossi Melman, “is often an instrument of policy, not a moral compass.”

Turkish-Israeli-American Jewish collusion

Beginning in or before the 1980s, Turkey sought help against critics, including Armenian and Greek Americans, of its human rights abuses. Turkey’s then-ally Israel enlisted Jewish American organizations into defending Turkey. Jewish/Israeli/Turkish media have penned millions of words confirming this.

JINSA’s Yola Habif Johnston confessed in 2006 that AIPAC, AJC, B’nai B’rith, and her organization “have been working with the Turks” for more than 15 years. “The Jewish lobby has quite actively supported Turkey to prevent the so-called Armenian genocide resolution from passing.” ADL was similarly guilty.
