Hong Kong Protest Slogans Break China's New Security Law: Government

Authorities in Hong Kong on Thursday warned that slogans and speech related to last year's protest movement or calls for independence for the city fall within the scope of draconian security legislation imposed on the city by the ruling Chinese Communist Party on June 30.

"Some people participating in illegal and violent activities ... [on] July 1 displayed or possessed items bearing the words 「光復香港 時代革命」 ," the government said in a statement referring to a popular protest slogan which translates as "Free Hong Kong! Revolution Now!"

"[This] slogan nowadays connotes "Hong Kong independence", or separating the Hong Kong Special Administrative Region (HKSAR) from the People's Republic of China, altering the legal status of the HKSAR, or subverting the State power," it said

The government said it "strongly condemns any acts which challenge the sovereignty, unification and territorial integrity of the People's Republic of China."

It cited the national security law, which bans actions or activities promoting "secession, subversion of state power and other [dangers to] national security."




Massive protests will rock our cities on july 4th as a penumbral lunar eclipse is visible above America

The level of hatred that we are witnessing all over America right now is extremely chilling, and it is rising with each passing day

Organizers are planning on making July 4th one of the biggest protest days so far, and law enforcement authorities all over the nation are bracing for the potential for more violence. 

Usually, July 4th is a day of great celebration in this country, but this year the mood is completely different, and many on the left are hoping to use one of our most important holidays to make a very memorable statement.

It is being anticipated that some of the largest protests will be in Washington D.C., and the White House in particular has been chosen as a focus.

One protest will end with large numbers of protesters “occupying The Ellipse just south of the White House”, and another protest which is being called a “million man march” will proceed directly in front of the White House and will end at the U.S. Capitol.

Meanwhile, a very unusual sign in the sky will occur on July 4th as well.  As long as clouds don’t block it, people all over the country will be able to view a penumbral lunar eclipse…




Poland's "safe elections” see record turnout despite pandemic

Voting stations were equipped with necessary health measures to ensure the safety of voters

More than 19 million people (64.51 percent of voters) participated in Sunday’s first round of presidential elections, one of the highest turnouts in Polish democratic history.

Janusz Cieszyński, Deputy Minister of Health, stated that the Polish government was able to organize safe elections due to delivering voting stations with protective equipment supplied by the Ministry of Health.

“There were 5 million pairs of gloves, hundreds of thousands of liters of disinfectant liquid and masks, especially in the regions where the levels of infections were the highest,” he said. The deputy minister added that polling stations were also able to minimize crowds within the buildings.

The deputy minister added that owing to the hard work of voting commissions, a visit to the voting station was safer than a trip to a local shop.




Bill Gates admits the problem with a vaccine is convincing people to get it

Bill Gates, who has been front and center of the coronavirus vaccine controversy, says that the “final hurdle” he will have to jump is getting people convinced to take the injection. Microsoft billionaire Bill Gates lamented the United States is “not even close” to committing enough crimes against humanity for his liking.

The reason rational people didn’t hear this from Gates is because he said it to Anderson Cooper on CNN and rational people don’t watch CNN. At that town hall, Gates insisted the US was “experiencing a rebound” in COVID-19 infections even accounting for the increase in testing. That increase, the software tycoon reminded his interviewers, was accomplished by local governments in spite of the White House.

There WILL BE A Second Lockdown: COVID-19 Cases “SPIKE”

The media has also done its job and made sure the public is terrified of the virus.

UK: Half of Imported Coronavirus Cases Come from Pakistan

People arriving from Pakistan brought half of all the imported coronavirus cases in the United Kingdom since March, a report has found.

As a result of the United Kingdom refusing to close down travel from virus hotspots during the pandemic, over 65,000 people from Pakistan — most of whom are believed to hold British passports — arrived in the country since March 1st.

Pakistan, which is reporting around 4,000 new cases of Covid-19 per day, is considered a “high-risk” country for the virus, but despite the inability or unwillingness of the Pakistani government to introduce effective containment measures, travellers from the Islamic Republic have been free to flood into the country.

Officials in Whitehall are reportedly worried that the revelations could spark a backlash against attempts to establish so-called open-air bridges with EU nations. British officials are also concerned that they will now have little ground to criticise countries like Portugal for failing to block imported cases from its former colony of Brazil.

“We can’t take people off the list because they might import cases from their former colonies”, a Whitehall official told the paper.




Deep State’s Collusion with Iran and Other Enemies of U.S.

Deep State’s Collusion with Iran and Other Enemies of U.S.

When all of the media’s attention focused on the Trump-impeachment-obsessed Democrats and the majority of their news media minions were focused on the House and Senate testimony given by the fired FBI director James Comey, no one seemed to pay attention to the credible evidence of former President Barack Obama’s propensity for rewarding America’s enemies.

The President Donald Trump-hating leftists in Congress and throughout the nation were disappointed when Comey’s testimony showed that: Trump is not now, nor has he ever been, under investigation by the FBI; President Obama’s attorney general, Loretta Lynch, told Comey not to call the probe into Hillary Clinton’s endless scandals an “investigation,” but rather a “matter”; and that Comey himself leaked his own memo about meetings with Trump, giving them to a leftist university professor to secretly turn over to a news media denizen.

At the same time there was another hearing held in Congress that uncovered much more explosive and disturbing information and evidence: President Barack Obama and his administration disbanded national security units which were originally charged with investigating Iran’s network of Islamic terrorism funding.




Polish President Vows to Oppose “Social Experiments” Designed to Harm Family Unit

Polish President Andrzej Duda has vowed to oppose the kind of “social experiments” performed on children in some western countries that have led to the erosion of the traditional family unit.

Speaking during a campaign rally in the town of Poronin before elections on June 28, Duda asserted that he would continue to pursue pro-family policies.

“These were policies of dignity for Poles and Poland — a dignified fight for Polish interests anywhere, where the truth about those interests had to be spoken. I never feared doing that,” he said.

Same-sex marriage, which is opposed by the majority of the population, is banned in the Polish constitution, and Duda emphasized his concern over how the LGBT movement has grown in other countries as a political power grab, not a civil rights cause.

“They are trying to persuade us that LGBT is a category of people, but it’s an ideology,” he said.




Austria: Green Party says taxing the rich is necessary to pay for coronavirus crisis

The Greens, which are members of Austria's ruling coalition government, say that the country cannot exit the coronavirus crisis without a significant contribution from wealthy Austrians, who will have to pay extra money into the state treasury in addition to current taxes.

Vice-Chancellor for the Greens, Werner Kogler, is now in the unenviable role of pioneering higher taxes for wealthy Austrians.

"Of course, when the time comes, millionaires will have to contribute. And it will be in this legislative period," Kogler said in the Zeit im Bild 2 program of the Austrian television ORF.

The Greens have been pushing for higher taxation of the rich for a long time, but after joining the government with the conservative People's Party led by Chancellor Sebastian Kurz, the Green party leadership said that such a measure needed preparation and its implementation is therefore a question of the future.

But now they claim that the rich will have to dig deeper into their wallets much earlier and that a proposal to change the legislation could probably be made in the fall.




Italian Epidemiologist: Coronavirus Has Gone from ‘Tiger’ to ‘Pussy Cat’

ROME — The once-potent coronavirus “has gone from being a tiger to a pussy cat,” according to Dr. Matteo Bassetti, director of Infectious Diseases at the San Martino Hospital in Genoa.

“This infection that was devastating three months ago now resembles a form of the flu,” writes Prof. Bassetti, who expressed concern Sunday that retaining policies of isolation for non-contagious carriers of the virus is counterproductive and “embarrassing.”

Asymptomatic cases of the virus that are emerging thanks to extensive testing should be treated differently than the once-rabid, symptomatic cases of months ago, insists Bassetti, who is also president of the Italian Society of Anti-infection Therapy (SITA).

“In Lombardy, 50 percent of swabs are now ‘weakly positive,’ with a viral load so low that the carriers are not contagious,” Bassetti notes, a phenomenon that is mirrored in the Veneto region of Italy.

Citing a recent report by the World Health Organization (W.H.O.), Bassetti said that after 3 days from the disappearance of symptoms for the symptomatic and 10 days for the asymptomatic, even if testing positive for the SarsCoV2 virus for many weeks, they are no longer contagious and therefore are not able to transmit the virus to another person.”




Belgium: Conservative journalist threatened by Muslims because of news article

A Belgian journalist is being threatened by Muslims for an article he wrote earlier this month about a three-year-old girl who was slaughtered by Islamic extremists using machetes in Nigeria.

Jakob Kürüm writes for SCEPTR, a popular Flemish conservative news portal. On June 12 he published an article about a 3-year-old Nigerian Christian girl, Elizabeth Samaila, who was cut to pieces by Islamic extremists wielding machetes when they attacked her village.

Nine other villagers were also killed and several others are missing. Additionally, an 8-year-old girl was severely injured.

The attack was carried out by Fulani shepherds, Nigerian Muslims who are known to carry out terror attacks on Christian villages.

Christians are frequently the targets of Islamic violence in Nigeria, with international human rights groups reporting that nearly 12,000 Christians have been murdered by Muslims in the country over the past five years. 

After Kürüm’s article was published, he began receiving hate mail and death threats on social media. He said that Muslims have been sending him messages like “dirty whore,” “I’ll fuck you when I see you,” and “Do you want me to fuck you or something?” He said that while the messages don’t trouble him, some extremists even contacted his parents and his siblings, threatening to kill them if Kürüm continues with his work, which was more disturbing.




Russia accuses leading Arctic researcher of spying for China

Moscow (CNN)Russia has accused one of its leading Arctic researchers of treason, alleging that he gave sensitive information to China.

This is the latest in a string of cases where high-profile Russian scientists have found themselves in a standoff with the security services over suspected foreign contacts.

Investigators allege that Valery Mitko, President of Arctic Academy of Sciences in St. Petersburg, gave a document containing state secrets to Chinese intelligence in early 2018 at China's Dalian Maritime University, where he was a visiting professor, his lawyer Ivan Pavlov told CNN.

According to Pavlov, the document in question dealt with hydroacoustics,the study of sound in water commonly applied in underwater navigation, communications and monitoring submarine activity, among other things.

Mitko, 78, denies any wrongdoing. His lawyer maintains that all information the scientist brought from Russia to China for his lectures was openly available. The press service of the Federal Security Service did not respond to a request for comment. 




European Commission Vows to Make EU Institutions More Racially ‘Diverse’

The EU Commission will “fight” to make European institutions more racially diverse, its spokesman has said.

In an interview with France24 on Monday, Margaritis Schinas was challenged by the left-wing state-owned news channel on a lack of racial diversity in European institutions, the Commission’s plans for a bloc-wide migration policy, and on the treatment of illegal immigrant “children” in Greece.

Noting the death of American George Floyd, protests against which have sparked weeks-long protest and violence in cities across the West, interviewer Catherine Nicholson lamented that Europe has not yet appointed a black commissioner.

She added that less than five per cent of Members of the European Parliament come from a non-European racial background.

Schinas said that EU nations have “a strong tradition of protecting minorities”, but noted that Brussels’ “competition-based” system for selecting commissioners makes it difficult for ethnic groups to have representation exactly equal to their demographic proportions.




South Australia will open its borders TOMORROW to three states - but most Australians will still be turned away

The move will give hope to ailing tourism businesses desperate for visitors

South Australia will let in visitors from Western Australia, the Northern Territory and Tasmania without quarantine from midnight in a bid to kickstart the economy.

The move will give hope to ailing tourism businesses desperate for visitors after months of lockdown.   

Border controls requiring 14-day quarantine will remain in place for visitors from the other states and the ACT, although the government is considering letting Queenslanders in from next week.

Those not on board with french revolution were chopped, chaz protesters warn after renaming their camp

Those who refuse to embrace their movement could face a violent end, a group of protesters in Seattle have declared. The unsettling warning comes after their encampment in the city was renamed to CHOP.

A group of demonstrators who gathered outside Seattle’s West Precinct on Sunday night had a chilling message for anyone who hasn’t pledged fealty to their radical demands, which include the abolition of the city’s police department and a complete transformation of the criminal justice system.

One demonstrator with a megaphone explained a possible secondary meaning behind the decision to rebrand their camp, the Capitol Hill Autonomous Zone (CHAZ), to ‘CHOP’ (‘Capitol Hill Organized Protest’ or ‘Capitol Hill Occupied Protest’, depending on who you ask).

“Does anybody know what happened to the people who did not get on board with the French Revolution?” he shouted. “Chopped,” his compatriots yelled in reply.

The proclamation was met with considerable skepticism – and mockery – on social media. 




Trump campaign says ticket requests for Oklahoma rally surpass 800,000

Trump campaign manager Brad Parscale said Sunday that several hundred thousand people have requested tickets for President Trump’s looming Oklahoma rally, while some public health officials are fretting over the rally and Mr. Trump’s return to the campaign trail amid the coronavirus outbreak.

“Just passed 800,000 tickets,” Mr. Parscale tweeted on Sunday morning. “Biggest data haul and rally signup of all time by 10x. Saturday is going to be amazing!”

Mr. Parscale previously tweeted that the campaign was looking to add a second event in Oklahoma to accommodate the throngs of people eager to see the president.

Mr. Trump’s coming rally in Oklahoma on Saturday has rankled some public health officials that worry about the spread of coronavirus. Dr. Scott Gottlieb, former Food and Drug Administration commissioner until 2019, told CBS on Sunday that he does not think holding the rally is a good idea.

“If I was giving advice to the administration on this, I would say that they should withhold large political rallies right now,” Dr. Gottlieb told CBS. “They also need to lead by example, and so encouraging people to social distance, encouraging people to wear masks, that’s what we should be engaging in right now.”




Claim: French Police Refuse Arrest Over Fears of Being Sacked for Racism

French police have allegedly refused to arrest an individual in the city of La Rochelle, fearing that accusations of racism could get them sacked or the arrest could spark fresh riots.

The incident took place on Tuesday evening when a young cyclist shouted  “ACAB”, an acronym for “all cops are bastards”, at a police patrol several times.

When the police turned around to confront the young man he unleashed a torrent of insults on them, but the youth was eventually, politely, let go.

The reason the young man was not arrested, according to a report from newspaper Valeurs Actuelles, was that the police feared being labelled racist or that an arrest could spark fresh riots in the wake of Black Lives Matter protests in France and across the globe.

Officers are also allegedly concerned that accusations of racism could see them lose their jobs. The fears were sparked by French Interior Minister Christophe Castaner stating on Monday that “a suspension must be systematically considered for each proven suspicion of a racist act or speech” made by police.




Italy's coronavirus epicenter nears "herd immunity" as more than half of people tested show antibodies

The northern Italy city of Bergamo, the epicenter of the coronavirus outbreak and the hardest hit region in the country, is nearing "herd immunity" after more than half of its residents tested positive for COVID-19 antibodies.

A new study conducted by Italy's National Institute of Statistics revealed that 57% of 10,000 Bergamo residents who had blood tests performed between April 23 and June 3 had antibodies for COVID-19.

These findings suggest that nearly two-thirds of the population may be resistant to the virus, indicating possible herd immunity.

Health authorities said the results of the antibody tests were based on random samples from some of the city's worst-hit areas. They believe those tested are a reliable indicator of how many people had been infected.

With more than 235,000 positive coronavirus cases and more than 34,000 deaths, Italy has been one of the hardest-hit countries.




Prof at Hillary Clinton's alma mater makes the case for political violence

Kellie Carter Jackson is a professor of Africana studies at Wellesley College, Hillary Clinton’s alma mater.

As riots and looting desecrate America’s cities, one professor is defending political violence, claiming that it is sometimes necessary and suggesting that it is racially biased to criticize African Americans for violent acts. 

During an interview with Slate, Wellesley College Africana Studies professor Kellie Carter Jackson makes several claims regarding American social change, including that violence is often necessary to solicit desired societal outcomes. 

“If violence is a political language, white Americans are native speakers."    https://ws.sharethis.com/images/2017/twitter_16.png");">Tweet This

Slate shared the interview on Twitter, claiming that “Non-violence is an important tool for protests, but so is violence.”




Manufacturer that burned as Minneapolis protests turned violent plans to relocate from city

'They didn't protect our people,' 7-Sigma owner says of city officials. 

A Minneapolis manufacturing company has decided to leave the city, with the company's owner saying he can't trust public officials who allowed his plant to burn during the recent riots. The move will cost the city about 50 jobs.

"They don't care about my business," said Kris Wyrobek, president and owner of 7-Sigma Inc., which has operated since 1987 at 2843 26th Av. in south Minneapolis. "They didn't protect our people. We were all on our own."

Wyrobek said the plant, which usually operates until 11 p.m., shut down about four hours early on the first night of the riots because he wanted to keep his workers out of harm's way.

He said a production supervisor and a maintenance worker who live in the neighborhood became alarmed when fire broke out at the $30 million Midtown Corner affordable housing apartment complex that was under construction next door.
