‘Defection Could Topple Communist Party’: Chinese Chief Spymaster Rumored To Have ‘Defected to the West Offering Secrets about Covid Origins & Wuhan Lab’

Geller Report - Sun, 06/20/2021 - 15:00

Let’s pray “Biden” doesn’t serve his CCP masters and send him back.

Rumors that China’s top “spy catcher” has defected to the United States and is giving the Biden information about the Wuhan Institute of Virology and the leak of the coronavirus, if proven true, could “even lead to the fall of the Communist Party,” China expert Gordon Chang told Newsmax on Saturday.

“This is so explosive it could lead to a chain of events, which would sever relations between China and the United States,” Chang, the author of “The Coming Collapse of China,” told Newsmax‘s “The Count,” adding Bejing appears to be in a panic over the reports.

The reports claim Chinese official Dong Jingwei, a vice-minister who took over responsibility for the country’s counter-intelligence three years ago, reportedly flew from Hong Kong to the United States in February with his daughter, reports South Asia news service ANI quoting SpyTalk, a newsletter covering U.S. intelligence, defense, and foreign affairs policy.

There has been no official comment from China, but according to SpyTalk, Dong reportedly gave the Biden administration information that caused it to change its stance on the Wuhan laboratory and to reconsider the potential the coronavirus that caused the worldwide COVID-19 pandemic came from the lab, rather than from nature.

If the rumors turn out to be true, Dong’s defection would be the highest level in the history of the People’s Republic of China.

Han Lianchao, a former Chinese ministry official who defected after the 1989 massacre at Tiananmen Square, said the issue of Dong’s defection was brought up during the summit between China and the United States in Anchorage earlier this year.

Han, citing an unnamed source, tweeted China’s Foreign Minister, Wang Yi, and Yang Jiechi, who is in charge of the Communist Party’s foreign affairs, demanded of Secretary of State Antony Blinken that Dong be returned, but he refused.

Toiwnhall reports:

Not only does Dong have detailed information about China’s special weapons systems, the Chinese military’s operation of the Wuhan Institute of Virology and the origins of SARS-CoV-2, and the Chinese government’s assets and sources within the United States; Dong has extremely embarrassing and damaging information about our intelligence community and government officials in the “terabytes of data” he’s provided to the DIA.

[…]

In addition, Dong has provided DIA with the following information:

  • Early pathogenic studies of the virus we now know as SARS-CoV-2
  • Models of predicted COVID-19 spread and damage to the US and the world
  • Financial records detailing which exact organizations and governments funded the research on SARS-CoV-2 and other biological warfare research
  • Names of US citizens who provide intel to China
  • Names of Chinese spies working in the US or attending US universities
  • Financial records showing US businessmen and public officials who’ve received money from the Chinese government
  • Details of meetings US government officials had (perhaps unwittingly) with Chinese spies and members of Russia’s SVR
  • How the Chinese government gained access to a CIA communications system, leading to the death of dozens of Chinese people who were working with the CIA

This goes well beyond COVID and bioweapons. It’s a window into the extensive and entrenched intelligence network China has established here. He knows the spies, who’s getting paid to be a rat, and much more. The alleged studies showing the damage COVID can inflict on the world only bolsters the lab leak theory. That it was intentional to curb China getting rolled in the socioeconomic arena. Trump had them on their heels, and this pandemic gave them breathing room. If China couldn’t win or succeed, then no one can. A totalitarian government that is conducting a high-tech genocide against the Uighur population is bound to do anything to accomplish its nefarious goals. Oh, and the Bidens are in this intelligence dump as well. As Jen noted, “Dong also has provided DIA with copies of the contents of the hard drive on Hunter Biden’s laptop, showing the information the Chinese government has about Hunter’s pornography problem and about his (and Joe’s) business dealings with Chinese entities.”

Petition To Free The Political Prisoners of January 6, 2021

Geller Report - Sun, 06/20/2021 - 15:00

Ethan Nordean is being held in Federal custody as a political protester for attending the January 6th election fraud protest.

You can find the petition here or click here: US v. NORDEAN

Sign the petition here.

June 13, 2021

The Honorable Timothy J. Kelly
U. S. District Court for The District of Columbia E. Barrett Prettyman U. S. Courthouse
333 Constitution Avenue, N. W.
Washington, DC 20001

IN RE: UNITED STATES OF AMERICA v. NORDEAN Dear Judge Kelly:

We the undersigned, each, individually, and also as a united group of steadfast American Citizens come before you today by way of this Petition to beg your indulgence and ask that you reconsider the decision and set aside the verdict reached regarding the continued and ongoing detainment and confinement of Mr. Ethan Nordean.

Mr. Nordean, as you recall was taken into custody and arrested on Wednesday, January 6, 2021. He, along with thousands of other citizens was exercising his First Amendment Right, afforded to him under The Constitution of The United States of America to peaceably assemble, and to petition the Government for a redress of grievances. Period. The Protest was a mostly peaceful protest.

Mr. Nordean is a father, a son, a husband, a brother, a Patriot. He is a man who deeply loves his country, and everything it stands for. He is proud to be an American. He enjoys the rights and privileges being an American Citizen afforded to him, by the blood, sweat and tears of the millions of Patriotic Citizens who came before him, and no doubt will come after him.

The American Citizens who attended the Protest on January 6, 2021 were there of their own free will. They were not brain-washed; nor were they forced or coerced to be there. Free will with which we have all been endowed by our Divine Creator.

Should there be any question whether Donald J. Trump, then President of the United States could force anyone to attend this peaceful protest? Could Mr. Ethan Nordean – father, son, husband, probably an UNKNOWN man to many of the thousands of attendees of this peaceful protest force anyone to be there against their will? Or were they there of their own volition? More likely than not, the latter is true.

It would seem that there was a rush to judgment by some Federal Agencies, in their zest and their zeal to apprehend people or persons responsible for the aftermath of the peaceful protest. In their far and over-reaching authority, using information obtained by them, from their sources, or shared between agencies, they quickly rounded up members of groups who had been mentioned in the media as being members of “Far- right Extremist” Groups. The FBI and DOJ, even went so far as to make a pre- emptive strike, taking into custody another man Enrique Tarrio, BEFORE the protest of January 6. Mr. Ethan Nordean has not ever been, NOR is he currently a member of any Far-right OR Extremist group. Even more disturbing, it has come to light, that the Prosecution withheld exculpatory evidence from Mr. Nordean’s Defense Counsel. This is tantamount to prosecutorial misconduct, and should demonstrate, just how far the FBI and DOJ are willing to go to stack the deck in their favor.

Much has been made about the so-called, “Storming of The Capitol”. Although this is the most recent example, it is certainly not the first time that something like this has happened. At least ten other times during the history of our country between the years 1814 – when on August 24, 1814 invading British Troops marched into Washington, DC and set the U. S. Capitol ablaze. They also set fire to the Presidents’ Mansion and other U. S. Landmarks leaving the Capital city in ruins – to 1970 when The Weather Underground planted a series of explosives around Washington, DC. On March 1, 1954 four (4) Puerto Rican separatists entered the House Floor during an upcoming vote. The Puerto Rican Nationalists, armed with handguns, shot indiscriminately into The House, wounding five Congressmen. November 7, 1983 there was a bombing outside of the Chamber of the U. S. Senate causing $250,000 in damages. After the 9/11 attacks in 2001, deadly bacteria Anthrax was found on Capitol Hill, including in the office of Senate Majority Leader Tom Daschle. Senator Patrick Leahy was also sent Anthrax spores.

And who could EVER forget, the true insurrection, which occurred on October 4, 2018. Taking place during the Confirmation Hearing of Brett Kavanaugh. Senator Diane Feinstein invited Alyssa Milano – to be her “guest”. Anti-Kavanaugh protesters took over the Hart Senate Office Building Atrium on Capitol Hill, Senators were under assault; Jeff Flake was quite literally held hostage by rage-filled, screaming women in an elevator, we had Handmaids in full regalia, and who can even remember how many times the proceedings were interrupted by screaming and unruly protesters, right in the Judicial Chambers. MORE than 300 persons were taken into custody.

While this is the most recent time the U. S. Capitol has weathered political upheaval, it most certainly IS NOT the only time. NOR was it, as many believe, the most violent. In actuality only ONE PERSON WAS “KILLED”. An unarmed, female veteran, who was shot by a U. S. Capitol Police Officer.

You cited some reasons for your decision as, Destruction of Federal Property, Facilitation of Political Violence, and you determined that, “No conditions or combination of conditions outside prison would reasonably assure the safety of any other person or the community.” As noted previously, Mr. Nordean possesses a great respect for this country. He is a Patriot in the truest sense of the word. Without direct, irrefutable, first-hand knowledge, there can be NO ASSUMPTION MADE by anyone that Mr. Nordean participated in the “Destruction of Federal Property.” This is aberrant to his nature, it is an affront to his beliefs and it is an attack on his character

Rest assured, Mr. Nordean poses no threat to anyone, any institution, any rule of law, any thought, any feeling or any social construct which any person or individual may hold near and dear to their existence.

Your Honor, with all due respect, time is of the essence regarding this matter. It has been reported by at least two verifiable sources that Mr. Nordean, as well as a number of others taken into custody on January 6, 2021, has been mistreated and abused by the guards.

For your reference, I provide: Exhibit “A”

An article published by, “Insider”, April 10, 2021.

~ “A Proud Boys leader is arguing he shouldn’t be sent back to jail, since other accused Capitol rioters are being beaten and threatened by guards.

An alleged Capitol rioter who is out on bail does not want to go back to jail, court documents show.

His attorneys argued that other defendants charged in the Capitol riots have been abused by guards.

Nordean, a Proud Boys leader, was released from jail in March.

Lawyers for a self-proclaimed “Sergeant of Arms” of the far-right Proud Boys asked a federal judge to keep his client out of jail, in part because other accused Capitol rioters have alleged abuse and mistreatment behind bars.

In a court filing on April 8, which was first reported by Law and Crime, lawyers for 30-year-old Ethan Nordean cited a recent Politico article, (3) describing alleged violence other Capitol siege defendants have experienced from guards.

According to the article, one defendant told a judge that another defendant “was severely beaten by correctional officers, [is now] blind in one eye, has a skull fracture and detached retina.” The defendant reportedly added that many other of the accused Capitol rioters have experienced violence, threats, and verbal harassment from the guards — including one episode where a guard said, “I hate all white people and your honky religion.”

A judge released Nordean — who is also known as Rufio Panman — on bail in March, according to court documents. He is charged with a slew of offenses related to the January 6 insurrection, including conspiracy, obstruction of law enforcement during civil disorder, destruction of government property, and disorderly conduct. Nordean has pleaded not guilty to the charges and is awaiting trial.

Nordean’s lawyers also said in the filing that they have personally learned of another Capitol riot defendant who was neglected, humiliated, and threatened by the guards at a DC facility.

According to the documents, the unidentified defendant said guards would flash lights in his eyes at night and prevent him from sleeping, and that he was placed in a cell with a broken toilet and given baby wipes instead of a shower.

“Guards would snap photographs of the defendant with their phones without his consent, which they appeared to be sharing with other parties through their phones,” Nordean’s lawyers wrote.

Prosecutors have sought to put Nordean behind bars, pending his trial, and previously argued that he was a flight risk.

According to court documents, Proud Boys organization members planned for the Capitol breach months in advance. As Insider previously reported, Nordean was the “ultimate leadership of the Proud Boys’ activities on January 6, 2021.” (1)

Exhibit “B”
An article published by, “Law & Crime”, April 9, 2021

~ “‘Proud Boy’ Ethan Nordean Says He Should Stay Out of Jail Because Guards Are Beating Capitol Siege Defendants.

Ethan Nordean, the Seattle-area Proud Boys member also known as Rufio Panman to audiences on InfoWars with Alex Jones, is joining a chorus of complaints about defendants’ treatment behind bars as they await further proceedings on charges connected to the breach of the U.S. Capitol Complex on Jan. 6. Nordean, who is free on bond, says the alleged mistreatment of other inmates should be taken into account by a federal judge. Prosecutors are asking that judge to send Nordean back to jail as he awaits trial.

A three-page court filing by Nordean’s lawyers directly references a Politico report which claims guards at Washington, D.C.’s Correctional Treatment Facility have targeted capitol breach defendants with alleged physical and verbal abuse. The accusations came to light when one Capitol siege defendant, Ronald Sandlin, told a judge this week that his fellow Jan. 6th defendants “are scared for their lives” behind bars.

Sandlin said Jan. 6 defendant Ryan Samsel “was severely beaten by correctional officers” and is now “blind in one eye, has a skull fracture, and detached retina.” He also alleged that racial tension existed between minority guards and the various white defendants, some of whom are alleged or admitted white supremacists. Samsel’s attorney subsequently threatened litigation against the jail facility, the Politico report said.

Nordean’s attorneys piled on to the accusations in a April 8 court filing:

Undersigned counsel can add that these reports are consistent with what they have personally learned in connection with another Capitol protester defendant, who is not even included in the above reporting. This defendant advised counsel that, during his pretrial detention at the D.C. facility, guards would flash lights in his eyes at night so that he could not sleep; that when he was held in solitary confinement for the duration of his stay, he was not given a shower and placed in a cell with a broken toilet; that when he asked for a shower, was handed baby wipes; that he was verbally threatened by guards on multiple occasions; and that guards would snap photographs of the defendant with their phones without his consent, which they appeared to be sharing with other parties through their phones.

It is unclear whether Nordean directly suffered any alleged harms while he was detained pending trial, but he is using the accusations in a legal strategy aimed at remaining free on bond. His argument, put simply, is that he fears being targeted because of his ties to an alleged white supremacist group if he is forced to return to jail. Federal prosecutors have consistently asked that Nordean be locked up; however, but for a brief emergency detention order, judges have thus far refused to acquiesce to those demands.

Federal prosecutors filed charges against Norden on Feb. 2, and he was arrested on Feb. 3. Though a magistrate judge in Washington State ordered Nordean to be released from custody, a federal judge in Washington, D.C., ordered him detained and transported back to the capital to face trial on Feb. 8. Nordean’s attorneys continued to argue that he should be released from jail because, in their view, the charges against him were not supported by probable cause, the charges he faced did not constitute “crimes of violence,” and Nordean’s conduct wasn’t serious enough to warrant the degree and level of charges he faced.

“Nordean, 30, has no criminal history,” his defense attorneys argued on Feb. 23. “He has been gainfully employed in the Seattle area since his graduation from high school, where he has long and strong ties. The government’s argument here is merely that Nordean belongs to the Proud Boys group and should therefore be detained.”

Prosecutors countered that Nordean was a flight risk and that he needed to remain locked up to ensure the safety of the community.

Judge Beryl A. Howell on March 3rd agreed that Nordean could be released on a personal recognizance bond and ordered him to remain on home detention pending trial. He agreed to GPS monitoring, and the court docket makes reference to a “High Intensity Supervision Program.”

Indictments against Nordean were handed up on March 3rd and on March 10th. Prosecutors again moved to lock him up pending trial on March 20th. A judge said on March 23rd he could remain out on bond. A flurry of arguments from prosecutors and from Nordean’s defense attorneys continued to jockey the issue in the ensuing days and weeks.

A judge took the arguments “under advisement” on April 6th but allowed Nordean to remain out on bond.

His attorneys complained about his treatment behind bars to bolster their record should the judge ultimately issue a ruling on whether he should remain free pending trial or should be remanded into custody.

Nordean currently is charged with conspiracy; obstruction of an official proceeding and aiding and abetting; obstruction of law enforcement during civil disorder and aiding and abetting; destruction of government property and aiding and abetting; entering and remaining in a restricted building or grounds; and disorderly conduct in a restricted building or grounds.” (2)

Exhibit “C”

A “Politico” Article published on April 6, 2021.

~ “Capitol riot defendant alleges beating by jail guards

A man accused in the Jan. 6 unrest was left partially blind and moved to another facility, lawyers say.

Tensions are running high between guards and inmates at a D.C. jail housing many of the defendants in Jan. 6 cases, with at least one of those prisoners alleging that he was brutally beaten by correctional officers.

For weeks, Capitol riot defendants being held in Washington have complained that they are locked in their cells with virtually no human contact for 23 hours a day. But a startling, graphic account offered publicly in court on Tuesday by one such inmate, Ronald Sandlin, went further: alleging that guards have subjected those charged in the Jan. 6 events to violence, threats and verbal harassment.

“Myself and others involved in the Jan. 6 incident are scared for their lives, not from each other but from correctional officers,” Sandlin said during a bail hearing conducted by video before U.S. District Court Judge Dabney Friedrich. “I don’t understand how this is remotely acceptable,” he added, saying he was being subjected to “mental torture.”

In an unusual direct plea to the judge, Sandlin said another Capitol riot defendant, Ryan Samsel, “was severely beaten by correctional officers, [is now] blind in one eye, has a skull fracture and detached retina.”

Sandlin also described racial tension between minority guards and the largely white defendants, some of whom have been publicly accused of membership in or association with white supremacist groups.

Sandlin said guards tackled “to the ground” one high-profile prisoner, Richard Barnett, 60, who was photographed with his boot up on a desk in Speaker Nancy Pelosi’s office. Sandlin said one of the guards declared, “I hate all white people and your honky religion.”

The three defendants raising alarms are charged with a wide range of crimes related to the Capitol breach. Sandlin, who posted images of himself smoking a joint in the Capitol Rotunda, is accused of tussling with multiple U.S. Capitol Police officers guarding the Senate chamber and trying to rip the helmet off of one of them. Samsel, who is currently on parole in Pennsylvania and is wanted for an unrelated alleged assault in New Jersey, is charged with toppling barricades on top of police officers, telling one, “We don’t have to hurt you, why are you standing in our way?”

Barnett is charged with entering the Capitol armed with a stun gun, entering Pelosi’s office and putting his feet on the furniture, as well as stealing a piece of mail from her office.

Defense attorneys for Samsel and Barnett confirmed the episodes described in court by Sandlin, which they said they learned about from their clients, clients’ family members and other attorneys.

“There is a pattern of abuse and of targeting of the defendants who are being held pursuant to what happened on Jan. 6,” said Joseph McBride of New York, a defense lawyer for Barnett. “It is targeted. It is ruthless. It is nonstop.”

Steven Metcalf, a lawyer for Samsel, said that after his client complained last month about slow delivery of toilet paper, he was zip-tied, moved to a cell outside the view of surveillance cameras and brutally beaten by guards.

“I have seen Ryan. He has two black eyes to this day, two weeks later. All the skin is ripped off both wrists, which shows the zip ties and how tight they were,” said Metcalf, also from New York. “Other inmates said his face looked like a tomato that was stomped on.”

“We intend on filing a lawsuit against the two specific guards and the facility responsible for this scenario because Ryan Samsel did not deserve to get targeted and treated like this,” Metcalf added.

Another attorney for Samsel, Elisabeth Pasqualini, said that her client was moved to another “undisclosed” location earlier on Tuesday and that the episode in which he was injured last month was under investigation by the FBI.

A spokesperson for the jail system said the matter was under federal investigation.

“The Department of Corrections takes the safety and well-being of all residents, staff, and contractors extremely seriously,“ Keena Blackmon, a spokesperson for the D.C. Department of Corrections, said in an email statement. “We are aware of the allegation made by an inmate and it is under investigation by the Department of Justice.“

An FBI spokesperson would not say what the agency is doing about Samsel’s allegations, but said agents had been advised about them.

“The FBI is aware of the allegations; however, as a matter of policy, we can neither confirm nor deny the existence of an investigation,” the spokesperson said by email on Tuesday evening.

Nearly all the Jan. 6 defendants who have reached Washington and remain in custody are being held at the Correctional Treatment Facility, a complex in southeast D.C. typically used for prisoners with health needs or who require isolation from the

general jail population. About 40 Capitol riot defendants are currently at the CTF, defense lawyers said.

A D.C. jail spokesperson and an attorney who represents the D.C. government on such issues did not immediately respond to requests for comment on the allegations. Jail officials have previously informed the court that the Jan. 6 defendants have all been held in “restrictive housing” in order to protect them from potential altercations with other inmates.

“For their own safety and security, all of the detainees who are being held at the Jail in connection with the events that occurred on January 6, 2021 at the Capitol Building have been placed in restrictive housing,” Deputy Warden Michelle Jones said in a declaration submitted last month to Judge Royce Lamberth, who is presiding over a separate case related to Jan. 6.

One veteran D.C. defense attorney said many Capitol rioters were new to the District’s jail system and might believe they’re being specifically targeted when they’re simply unfamiliar with being in jail at all — particularly in the harsh conditions of 23-hour-a-day isolation.

During the hearing on Tuesday, Friedrich made no direct response to Sandlin’s complaints about the jail, but she set a further hearing for Thursday on his possible release from custody.

Pasqualini said she recognized that many people might have little sympathy for those accused of storming the Capitol, but that people who haven’t been convicted of any crime shouldn’t face such harsh conditions or abuse.

“For anyone inclined to think as a charged ‘Capitol Rioter,’ Mr. Samsel got what he deserved, I say get down from your mountain top, the hypocrisy in that air is distorting your vision,” she said in a statement. “Either we live in a democracy that believes in due process and equal justice before the law or we do not.”

At another hearing on Tuesday, the chief judge of the court handling the Jan. 6 cases openly bristled at a recent appeals court ruling that made it harder to hold those defendants in jail pending trial.

Chief Judge Beryl Howell said the March 26 decision from the D.C. Circuit Court of Appeals was inscrutable, and she repeatedly expressed disappointment that prosecutors did not appeal it further, but quickly agreed to release the two Jan. 6 defendants who brought the appeal, Eric Munchel and Lisa Eisenhart.

“The government just folded,” Howell declared. She complained that District Court judges were “being put through the paces” by prosecutors and urged the rank-and-file prosecutor at her hearing to take the complaint to John Crabb, a top official in the U.S. Attorney’s Office in Washington.

The appeals court decision emphasized that the events of Jan. 6 occurred in an almost unique context and that predictions about the future actions of riot suspects needed to be assessed through that prism.

However, Howell called aspects of the D.C. Circuit ruling “irreconcilable” and suggested that in the wake of the ruling, only those who were videotaped engaging in hand-to-hand combat with police on Jan. 6 were likely to be held as they await trial.

“The Circuit’s view is, gosh, take a taser, take some zip ties, walk around the Senate chamber — not a sign of future dangerousness,” Howell said.

Similar issues were aired on Tuesday in one of the government’s highest-profile Jan. 6 cases, the prosecution of four Proud Boys leaders. The D.C. federal judge assigned to that case appeared skeptical about prosecutors’ efforts to detain defendants Ethan Nordean and Joseph Biggs ahead of trial.

Though prosecutors have described the pair as uniquely dangerous, able to assemble a violent mass of Proud Boys to do their bidding at a moment’s notice, U.S. District

Court Judge Timothy Kelly said that so far there appeared to be little evidence that either of the men committed or encouraged violence on Jan. 6 itself.

“The evidence of violence on that day is pretty muted,” Kelly said of Biggs and Nordean.

“I’m not saying that at a future hypothetical trial, the government’s not going to be able to stitch together all of this and lay a lot of what happened that day … at their feet,” Kelly continued. “Maybe you will. But in terms of weighing the question of dangerousness and detention … when we get down to the day in question, there isn’t anything that is very clearly an invocation of violence. It does say something about the strength of the case at this moment.”

Kelly issued no immediate ruling. The two men will remain under home confinement until another hearing the judge set for Friday.” (3)

Therefore, we the undersigned, fervently and respectfully request Your Honor, to revisit and reconsider your decision to revoke Mr. Nordean’s Pre-trial release.

We thank you for your time and consideration in this most important matter.

BOOM: Lauren Boebert Responds to Washed-Up Singer’s Attack on Old Glory — ‘Find a Country With a Flag You Like and Go Live in it!’

GatewayPundit - Sun, 06/20/2021 - 15:00

Washed up singer Macy Gray has penned an op-ed slamming the American flag as “tattered, dated and divisive” and argued for it to be replaced in honor of Juneteenth.

Naturally, the patriotic Rep. Lauren Boebert had something to say about it.

“There are 195 countries in the world. 194 of them don’t have the American flag. If @MacyGrayslife or anyone else hates the American flag so badly, they should pick a flag they like & go live in the country that flies it!” Boebert tweeted.

There are 195 countries in the world.

The one hit wonder’s anti-American tirade read like a standard Facebook rant from a Black Lives Matter nut — but it was published by MarketWatch on Thursday.

“The Confederate battle flag, which was crafted as a symbol of opposition to the abolishment of slavery, is just recently tired. We don’t see it much anymore. However, on the 6th, when the stormers rained on the nation’s most precious hut, waving Old Glory — the memo was received: the American flag is its replacement,” Gray wrote.

“President Biden, Madame Harris and members of Congress: the American flag has been hijacked as code for a specific belief. God bless those believers, they can have it. Like the Confederate, it is tattered, dated, divisive, and incorrect. It no longer represents democracy and freedom. It no longer represents ALL of us. It’s not fair to be forced to honor it. It’s time for a new flag,” Gray whined.

Her biggest issue? She doesn’t want the color white on the flag.

“The Smithsonian documents that the ‘white’ stripes represent purity and innocence. America is great. It is beautiful. Pure, it ain’t. It is broken and in pieces,” she wrote.

“What if the stripes were OFF-white? What if there were 52 stars to include D.C. and Puerto Rico? What if the stars were the colors of ALL of us — your skin tone and mine — like the melanin scale? The blue square represents vigilance and perseverance; and the red stripes stand for valor. America is all of those things. So, what if those elements on the flag remained? What if the flag looked like this?”

Gray included her own art of what she wants the flag to look like — apparently she is wishing for something that looks a little more like a middle schooler’s first decoupage project.

Frank Luntz’s Roomie – Weakling Kevin McCarthy – Says Trump Should Not Be Speaker of House in 2022 – He Thinks He Should Be

GatewayPundit - Sun, 06/20/2021 - 14:49

On Friday Kevin McCarthy came out against President Trump as Speaker.
This should come as no surprise.

In February Republican lawmakers voted 145-61 to keep Liz Cheney in a House leadership position.
House lawmakers put nasty Never-Trumper Cheney before their voters.

Cheney then went out and trashed Republican voters and President Trump for the next four months before the GOP lawmakers finally voted her out of leadership.

The Republican lawmakers really don’t care about their voters.

McCarthy was quick to toss President Trump under the bus after Democrats stole the 2020 election.

Meanwhile, the Marxists are destroying the country.

In early June former Trump Chief Strategist Steve Bannon promoted the idea that President Trump should be voted in as US Speaker after the 2022 election and take the gavel from Nancy Pelosi.

Conservative Brief reported:

Kilmeade asked McCarthy about the prospect of Trump leading as Speaker of the House, highlighting talk that had been going around Mar-a-Lago.

“…if you guys do take the House and finish the job, uh, that you almost shocked the world by doing a few months ago and take the house, — you’re only five seats down that maybe he runs for a seat or just appointed as Speaker – would you be for President Trump becoming Speaker?”

McCarthy replied, laughing somewhat nervously about the question, that he had spoken to Trump who had voiced his desire to become Speaker. He said:

“You know, I’ve talked to President Trump many times. He tells me he wants to be Speaker and I think he should be President. But most importantly, if you’re worried about the filibuster, the best way to stop it is win the House. You won’t have to worry about the filibuster again, cause those bills won’t get over there.”

And if you work in time and again, what are the Democrats doing with this majority? Not only do they want to change the election law, they want to make Puerto Rico and Washington D.C. states. Why? They’re doing everything they can to change the structure and constitutionality of our State—of our country—so they can maintain control illegally. That’s something we never want to see happen.”

New Book Alleges Mike Pence Praised Trump Aide For Unloading on Trump Over Charlottesville Response

GatewayPundit - Sun, 06/20/2021 - 14:00

A new book from Wall Street Journal reporter Michael C. Bender alleges that Mike Pence praised former Trump advisor Gary Cohn for blowing up on the president over his response to Charlottesville.

President Donald Trump had gained the ire of Cohn for saying that there were “very fine people” on both sides of the debate between people who wanted to remove the Robert E. Lee statue and the people who wanted to keep it.

An excerpt of Bender’s book, “Frankly We Did Win This Election’: The Inside Story of How Donald Trump Lost,” was published in Politico Magazine on Friday. In it, he describes a confrontation between Cohn and the president.

“Gary Cohn, the president’s top economic adviser—and a registered Democrat—was even more despondent. Raised Jewish on the East Side of Cleveland and a longtime New York resident, he stood next to Trump for the infrastructure news conference and grew increasingly alarmed and uncomfortable. Later, in a private meeting inside the Oval Office, Cohn unloaded on the president,” the excerpt says.

The author continued on to write, “Cohn told Trump that his lack of clarity had been harmful to the country and that he’d put an incredible amount of pressure on people working in the White House. He told Trump that he might have to quit. No one backed Cohn up. Others in the room, including Pence, remained quiet.”

“Cohn returned to his office after the meeting broke up. Following a few minutes behind, Pence climbed the flight of stairs and appeared at the threshold of Cohn’s door,” the book claims. “‘I’m proud of you,’ Pence told him, safely out of earshot of the president.”

Hanson: A Chinese Lab Virus? So Now What?

Geller Report - Sun, 06/20/2021 - 14:00

Stolen election? Now what?

A Chinese Lab Virus? So Now What?

In some way, many Americans are naïvely hopeful that COVID-19 was a one-off, ill-thought-out, gain-of-function laboratory accident. But what if it wasn’t quite so simple ?

By Victor Davis Hanson, June 16, 2021:

For over a year, the American establishment and media borg have ostracized anyone who dared to connect the origins of the COVID-19 pandemic with the Chinese military-sponsored, level-4 biosafety Wuhan Institute of Virology.

Then, suddenly and without apologies for their past demagoguery, “journalists” and “experts” concede that the nearby Wuhan lab may well be the most likely genesis.

Why the abrupt change?

Donald Trump is no longer president.

There is now no need for progressives to declare everything Trump once asserted as truth a lie. And that paradox includes Trump’s spring 2020 insistence that the lab, not a wet market of sliced-up bats, was the source of the outbreak.

The recent release of Anthony Fauci’s emails, along with the new information about Dr. Peter Daszak’s gain-of-function research, make it indisputable that both were knowingly channeling U.S. taxpayer dollars to the Chinese for coronavirus research in Wuhan.

So now what?

We are left with a number of lose-lose scenarios about China’s failed efforts to lie about the origins of COVID-19.

One, will China continually deny what is appearing to be undeniable? Perhaps, if we remember it is a country with a Communist Party hierarchy that once killed 60 million under Mao, and whose present apparat has put over 1 million Muslim Uyghurs into camps.

A stonewalling Beijing likely will conclude that the risk of appearing guilty for causing one of the greatest “natural” global disasters in a century is not nearly as destructive to its interests as admitting it.

Will China then wait us out, in O.J. Simpson fashion, denying the obvious facts—until wearied Americans move onto another of their media frenzies?

Or, two, could China confess that its SARS-CoV-2 virus was birthed in the Wuhan lab, but claim its appearance was a “joint” effort with the United States? They would then point to Fauci himself, who approved funds for Wuhan coronavirus enhancement to be channeled by Daszak. The Chinese would further insist their combined efforts were aimed at finding a “cure” for coronavirus epidemics. And thus Beijing should not be blamed—or at least not solely blamed.

Beijing could retort that it, too, was misled by its own sloppy researchers. Or the communist government might even preposterously answer that its prior code of silence was meant to shield the role of U.S. funders of the pandemic disaster.

Americans then would end up wondering to what degree our own doctors and institutions, at the highest levels of the U.S. government and of global medical establishment, not only lied to us throughout the crisis, but, in some bizzarro way, may have shared responsibility for the engineering of the Satanic virus itself.

Or three, Chinese officials could privately wink and nod to our intelligence and military communities that their researchers were, in fact, pursuing “legitimate” viral gain-of-function research until a terrible Chernobyl-like accident took place. Such things have also happened, they might unofficially remind our officials, at Bhopal, Three Mile Island, and Fukushima. In back channels Beijing then would regret the resulting global economic catastrophe, the millions dead, the even more millions sickened, the billions of lives harmed by the lockdown, and the apparent 2020-21 American political, economic, social and cultural meltdown.

China additionally would lament its “mistaken” lack of transparency and the “confusion” that accounted for misleading the world. And yet China would still smile, and sort of promise off the record that such an unforeseen disaster would never, ever—or at least almost never—happen again.

Four, we tend to block out the unthinkable. Nonetheless, in a few weeks more information from within China could leak out that the virus was a joint weaponized creation of civilian virologists and the Chinese military. How the virus escaped would not be clear, but millions the world over would suspect the worst of any involvement of the Chinese military.

In all these scenarios, we are left with the suspicion that an embryonic engineered virus was mysteriously released that did more damage to the Western world than any weapon deliberately employed since World War II. And we will become terrified that, in theory, it could happen again. More importantly, we still have no idea what to do: whether to act in a punitive or deterrent fashion, or both or neither.

Washington strategists are no doubt gaming all these rumors and unthinkables.

In some way, many Americans are naïvely hopeful that COVID-19 was a one-off, ill-thought-out, gain-of-function laboratory accident.

But some are most terrified that it was a proto-bioweapon that, regardless of whether it was accidentally released at some point, became a “never let a crisis go to waste” moment—an attitude that not only explained Chinese lying, but also the entire terrible year of 2020, and the near destruction of American society itself.

CDC Senior Scientist and Whistleblower: ‘We trashed data showing vaccine-autism link in African-American boys’

GatewayPundit - Sun, 06/20/2021 - 13:07

Current CDC Senior Scientist Dr. William Thompson revealed in a shocking statement that top US doctors hid and destroyed data that showed a vaccine-autism link in African-American boys.

The doctors actually sat in a room and tossed the hard copies of the documented evidence into a garbage can.

Thompson said he was told to destroy the evidence but kept it because he believed it was against the law.

Via Sharyl Attkisson:

Here is the full statement by current CDC Senior Scientist on Vaccine-Autism questions: Dr. William Thompson. Stay tuned to this website for an update on the story, soon.

I regret that my [CDC] coauthors and I omitted statistically significant information in our 2004 article published in the Journal of Pediatrics.

My primary job duties while working in the immunization safety branch from 2000 to 2006 were to lead or colead three major vaccine safety studies. The MADDSP MMR-Autism Cases
Control Study was being carried out in response to the Wakefield Lancet study that suggested an association between the MMR vaccine and an autism-like health outcome.
There were several major concerns among scientists and consumer advocates outside the CDC in the fall of 2000 regarding the execution of the Verstraeten study.

One of the important goals that was determined upfront in the spring of 2001 before any of these studies started was to have all three protocols vetted outside the CDC prior to the start of the analyses so that consumer advocates could not claim that we were presenting analyses that suited our own goals and biases.

We hypothesized that if we found statistically significant effects at either 18- or 36-month thresholds, we would conclude that vaccinating children early with MMR vaccine could lead to autism-like characteristics or features.

We all met and finalized the study protocol and analysis plan. The goal was to not deviate from the analysis plan to avoid the debacle that occurred with the Verstraeten Thimerosal study published in Pediatrics in 2003.

At the September 5 meeting, we discussed in detail how to code race for both the sample and the birth certificate sample. At the bottom of table 7, it also shows that for the
nonbirth certificate sample, the adjusted race effect statistical significance was huge.

All the authors and I met and decided sometime between August and September 2002 not to report any race effects for the paper. Sometime soon after the meeting, where we decided to exclude reporting any race effects, the coauthors scheduled a meeting to destroy documents related to the study.

The remaining four coauthors all met and brought a big garbage can into the meeting room and reviewed and went through all the hard copy documents that we had thought we should discard and put them in a huge garbage can.

However, because I assumed it was illegal and would violate both FOIA and DOJ requests, I kept hard copies of all documents in my office, and I retained all associated computer files.

Are Young Palestinians Really Suffering From Israeli Discrimination?

Geller Report - Sun, 06/20/2021 - 13:00

Former CIA director John Brennan’s recent remarks about Israel and of Jews have been criticized by Ira Stoll here.

He writes, “the United States needs to tell Israeli leaders to cease provocative settlement construction and … oppressive security practices.”

Settlements are not “provocative” unless you are a Palestinian or, like Brennan, rooting for them and indifferent to the rights of Jews in their ancestral homeland. The Mandate for Palestine states clearly — in Article 6 — that Jewish immigration is to be “facilitated” and “close Jewish settlement on the land” is to be encouraged. What land? The land assigned to the Mandate for Palestine, that was intended to become the Jewish National Home and then, finally, the Jewish state. That land extends from the Golan in the north to the Red Sea in the south, and from the Jordan River in the east to the Mediterranean in the west. All of Judea and Samaria – what the Jordanians renamed the “West Bank” in 1950, to try to efface the Jewish connection to the land – was meant to be included in that future Jewish state. I have the distinct impression that John Brennan, who was Deputy Director and then Director of the CIA under Obama, has never read, much less understood, the Mandate for Palestine. And I wonder if he has studied UN Resolution 242, with the helpful gloss on it by its eloquent author, Lord Caradon – the resolution which provides Israel with another, independent claim to those parts of the “West Bank” that Israel will need to retain if it is to have, in the key phrase of Resolution 242, “secure [i.e. defensible] and recognized borders.”

Brennan mentions that these young Palestinians grow up suffering “discrimination.” What does he have in mind? There is not a single Israeli in Gaza, so Israeli “discrimination” against Palestinians in Gaza is not possible. In the West Bank, 90% of the Arabs live in Areas A and B. In Area A, the PA has complete control of daily life. In Area B, the PA has complete control of all aspects of the Arab inhabitants lives except for security. It is only in Area C, where Israelis retain control, that fewer than 10% of the West Bank Arabs live. What kind of “discrimination” does Brennan think they must endure in Area C? Are they denied schooling, medical care, the right to practice their (Muslim) religion, the right to employment? No. They can’t vote in Israeli elections, granted – but why should they? They are not Israeli citizens.

Could Brennan possibly think that Israeli Arabs suffer discrimination? They have full equality with Israeli Jews, the same civil, religious, and political rights. Israeli Arabs sit in the Knesset, serve on the Supreme Court, go abroad as diplomats. The chairman of Israel’s largest bank, Bank Leumi, is an Arab. Jews and Arabs in Israel study in universities together; they work in the same factories and offices; they ride on the same busses and trains and planes; they are treated in the same hospitals. There is only one thing in which they differ: Israeli Arabs, unlike Israeli Jews, need not serve in the military, though they may do so if they so desire.

The response to Brennan’s vaporings came fast – and they were furious:

The lesson of 2000 years of persecution of the Jewish people is that Israel should live up to John Brennan’s moral standards. The level of stupidity and arrogance here is unbelievable,” wrote David Bernstein, a law professor at George Mason University.

“John Brennan shares his thoughts about Jews’ has become a full-blown genre,” commented the national security adviser to Senator Ted Cruz, Omri Ceren.

Noah Pollak, executive director of the Alliance Initiative, commented sarcastically, “On behalf of The Jews let me sincerely apologize for letting you down. Indeed we haven’t been living up to your ideals of giving land & power to terrorists trying to kill us. We should be more generous. We hope to earn your praise soon by dropping our objections to Hamas.”

Sara Yael Hirschhorn was succinct: “Two words: HAMAS rockets.”…

Ira Stoll continues:

It’s hard to top what’s been said, but let me venture a longer-than-tweet-length explanation of my own take on precisely why Brennan’s tweet was such a clunker. First, one of the whole [sic] founding ideas of Zionism was that of the “new Jew” — not “scarred,” but muscular, tanned, and strong. Second, the idea that the experience of suffering translates into morality is a classically Christian idea; think of Jesus on the cross. Jews would prefer not to suffer. After we have, we prefer not to be lectured by non-Jews about how we’ve failed to properly learn our lessons. And the symmetry of Jewish victimhood and Palestinian victimhood that Brennan draws is actually asymmetrical, as the scales are vastly different. Contrary to Brennan’s suggestion, Jews are still victims in various contexts.

It’s flabbergasting that this was the man who for four years headed the CIA. Or perhaps not, since at that time, the president was Barack Obama. Their views on Israel (thumbs down) are remarkably similar. They were –  don’t you agree? — made for each other.

GHOULISH: Bodies of Confederate General and His Wife Dug Up and Moved From Memphis Grave

GatewayPundit - Sun, 06/20/2021 - 13:00

The remains of Confederate Gen. Nathan Bedford Forrest and his wife Mary Ann Montgomery have been dug up as part of the lefts efforts to remove all markers and monuments to the historic cancelled.The bodies are now being held in an undisclosed location until they can be brought to their new resting place at the Sons of Confederate Veterans’ National Confederate Museum in Columbia, Tennessee.

The museum is roughly 200 miles from their previous grave in Memphis.

“The Forrest family felt that the remains of Forrest and his wife should be some place where he can be respected, protected, and visited without any danger, which is not the case here,” Lee Millar with the Sons of Confederate Veterans, told the local news.

The agreement for the bodies to be exhumed took years of negotiation between Memphis Greenspace, who owns the park, and the Sons of Confederate Veterans.

The park where the Forrest’s were laid to rest was called Forrest Park until a name change in 2013. A statue of him in the park was removed in 2017, after Greenspace bought the park.

The Hill reports that in April, Atlanta’s school board unanimously voted to rename Forrest Hill Academy, named after the Confederate general, to the Hank Aaron New Beginnings Academy.

This is not the only grave the left is digging up.

The city of Richmond, Virginia is also planning to dig up the grave of Confederate General Ambrose Powell Hill.

Bogus Fact-Check Site Used by Google Lists All Conservative Outlets as “Low Credibility” – But Lists All Far Left and Liberal Mainstream Outlets as High Credibility

GatewayPundit - Sun, 06/20/2021 - 12:35

Amid rampant censorship and demontization of the truth, conservatives are being purged from the internet.

Left-wing propaganda is brazenly permeating the airwaves, dominating the narrative in mainstream media, entertainment and academia.

In an effort to bolster the iron curtain and reinforce misinformation, an explosion of “fake-news” fact-checker sites devoted to delegitimizing The Gateway Pundit to continue to emerge.

The self-appointed gatekeepers of facts operate under the guise that they have no bias whatsoever and are typically cloaked behind a veil of anonymity.

In reality, they are merely liberal activists with, no actual journalism, experience intent on reinforcing their preconceived narratives and opinionating news.

Fact-checking is an imminent necessity because “you’re not intelligent enough to adequately read, research and or rationalize for yourself,” the socialist arbiters of truth proclaim, “so, you must rely on us to filter out the ‘fake news.'”

Exhibit A: MediaBIasFactCheck.com, a fact-checking that prides itself as “the most comprehensive media bias resource in the Internet,” despite being run by an owner who was previously exposed for misleadingly claiming to be a journalist.

According to the fact-checking site, The Gateway Pundit is not “right-center” or “right,” but “extreme” and ranks “very low” in factual reporting for premising its reports on “failed facts on a near-daily basis.”

 

MediaBiasFactCheck.com also claims The Gateway Pundit reports “propaganda,” “conspiracy,” “Nationalism” and “Some Fake News” and shares its “low credibility” rating with every prominent centrist or right of center media organizations.  These “fake-news”-selling media organizations include the Daily Caller, Breitbart, The Blaze, The Daily Wire, The Daily Mail, Epoch Times, The Federalist, Louder With Crowder, Project Veritas and Washington Free Beacon.

Daily Mail –

Notoriously left-leaning publications including Huffington Post, NPR, Daily Beast, The New York Times, The Young Turks, Southern Poverty Law Center and LA Times were all deemed “Left-Biased” or “Left-Center” and ranked favorably with “high credibility” by the formidable “experts” of fake news.

Dave Van Zandt, a healthcare industry worker from North Carolina and owner of MediaBiasFactCheck.com, touts his site as frequently being referenced by reputable center-left sources including “USA TodayReuters Fact CheckScience FeedbackWashington Post, and NPR, among dozens of others.”

According to Zandt’s bio, you can trust his arbitration of facts because “since High School (a long time ago), Dave has been interested in politics and noticed as a kid the same newspaper report in two different papers was very different in their tone.”

Yet, in an astounding example of deceptive hypocrisy, Zandt was forced in 2017 to amend his biography for including outright false information about his credentials following a fact-check of MediaBiasFactCheck.com conducted by the conservative news site World Net Daily.

Zandt had previously claimed in his biography that he was a veteran journalist with over two decades of experience:

“Dave has been freelancing for 25+ years for a variety of print and web mediums (sic), with a focus on media bias and the role of media in politics. Dave is a registered Non-Affiliated voter who values evidence-based reporting,” his biography stated in 2017, as WND reports. “Dave Van Zandt obtained a Communications Degree before pursuing a higher degree in the sciences. Dave currently works full-time in the health care industry. Dave has spent more than 20 years as an armchair researcher on media bias and its role in political influence.”

Yet, not a single or byline or article written by Zandt could be found on the web to corroborate Zandt actually worked as a journalist.

Pressed on his purported “25+ years” of experience writing for print and web media, Zandt admitted the information he provided about his journalism background was fabricated.

“I am not sure why the 25+ years is still on the website. That was removed a year ago when I first started the website. All of the writing I did was small print news zines from the ’90s. I felt that what I wrote in the ’90s is not related to what I am doing today so I removed it. Again, I am not a journalist,” he told WND. “I simply have a background in communications and more importantly science where I learned to value evidence over all else. Through this, I also became interested in research of all kinds, especially media bias, which is difficult to measure and is subjective to a degree.”

Like MediaBiasFactCheck.com, its competitors, which are deemed by big tech as the nation’s most prominent fact-checking organizations, tilt to the political left.

PolitiFact, which has previously the assertion “people can change their sex just because they feel that they are not their biological sex” is a “fact,” is heavily funded by leftist institutions including the Ford Foundation, the Tides Foundation, the Omidyar Network Fund.

The Washington Post’s Fact Checker, which uses Pinocchio ratings to rank the truthfulness of statements, is owned by Amazon.com CEO Jeff Bezos. In 2016, Bezos, a Democratic Party donor, deployed an army of 20 newspaper staffers to scour Donald Trump’s life for any dirt they could find on the presumptive GOP nominee.

Snopes’ “principal fact-checker” Kim LaCapria is a former sex-and-fetish blogger who described her routine as smoking pot.

The fact-checkers are giving their funders a bang for their buck. After all, low-information voters believe their fact-checking is legitimate.

OUTRAGEOUS: Georgia Secretary of State Raffensperger Received Report Showing Egregious Election Issues Yet He Concealed Report and Claimed State Had “Safe, Secure, and Honest Elections”

GatewayPundit - Sun, 06/20/2021 - 12:15

As reported earlier this week, back in January Georgia Secretary of State Brad Raffensperger told “60 Minutes” the state of Georgia, “Had safe, secure, and honest elections.”

Of course, NOTHING could be further of the truth.

The Gateway Pundit wrote several reports on the likely fraud and corruption in the November 2020 Georgia election.
In May, Georgia Judge Brian Amero asked to unseal more than 145,000 Fulton County absentee ballots for an election audit.

This was after a Gateway Pundit report exposed Georgia election officials repeatedly feeding thousands of ballots through the voting machines late at night in Atlanta, Georgia after the election observers were sent home.

UPDATE: Georgia Judge Orders 145,000 Absentee Ballots from Fulton County to Be Scanned to Determine Legitimacy — Case Revolves Around Explosive Dec. Report from Gateway Pundit

Then earlier this week a Fulton County Georgia election official admitted that the chain of custody documents that are legally required per state law are missing from 24% of the ballots from the 2020 election.  

Brad Raffensperger, the corrupt Secretary of State in Georgia is ultimately responsible (see picture above).  For the first time an elections official admitted the chain of custody documents are missing in Georgia per the Georgia Star.

Then today John Solomon and Just The News reported that an audit of documents found that more than 100 batches of absentee ballots are missing in Fulton County Georgia!  In the report it shows the report was created for the Secretary of State’s Office:

This seems like a massive chain of custody problem,” the contractor Carter Jones warned in the memo delivered by his firm Seven Hill Strategies to Raffensperger’s office shortly after the election.

Later this morning John Solomon told the War Room that Brad Raffensperger’s own team was saying that “bad, bad things” were coming out of Fulton County.

Raffensperger continuously claimed Georgia had a perfect election.  But his own report which he kept concealed until now shows rampant abuse, potential criminal activities, and corruption.  

Raffensperger hid this memo from the people of Georgia and the people of the United States and claimed he oversaw a safe, secure, and honest election knowing he did not.

“Palestinianism” (Islamic Terror) is Fuelling Both Antisemitism and Islamisation in the West

Geller Report - Sun, 06/20/2021 - 12:00

Cartoon depicting Jews as rats gnawing at foundations of al Aqsa mosque; from Fatah’s Information, Culture, and Ideology Commission website, 2014. In Palestinian Media Watch archive
We, the screamers.

THERE is a dream which keeps coming back to me at almost regular intervals; it is dark, and I am being murdered in some kind of thicket or brushwood; there is a busy road at no more than ten yards distance; I scream for help but nobody hears me, the crowd walks past laughing and chatting.

I know that a great many people share, with individual variations, the same type of dream. I have quarreled about it with analysts and I believe it to be an archetype in the Jungian sense; an expression of the individual’s ultimate loneliness when faced with death and cosmic violence, and his inability to communicate the unique horror of his experience. I further believe that it is the root of the ineffectiveness of our atrocity propaganda.

For, after all, you are the crowd who walk past laughing on the road; and there are a few of us, escaped victims or eyewitnesses of the things which happen in the thicket and who, haunted by our memories, go on screaming on the wireless, yelling at you in newspapers and in public meetings, theatres and cinemas. Now and then we succeed in reaching your ear for a minute. I know it each time it happens by a certain dumb wonder on your faces, a faint glassy stare entering your eye; and I tell myself: Now you have got them, now hold them, bold them, so that they will remain awake; but it only lasts a minute. You shake yourself like puppies who have got their fur wet; then the transparent screen descends again and you walk on, protected by the dream-barrier which stifles all sound.

WE, the screamers, have been at it now for about ten years. We started on the night when the epileptic Van der Lubbe set fire to the German Parliament; we said that if you don’t quench those flames at once, they will spread all over the world; you thought we were maniacs. At present we have the mania of trying to tell you about the killing, by hot steam, mass-electrocution and live burial of the total Jewish population of Europe. So far three million have died. It is the greatest mass-killing in recorded history; and it goes on daily, hourly, as regularly as the ticking of your watch…….. read the rest.”

The posthumous Nazi front against the Jews

Palestinianism is fuelling both antisemitism and Islamisation in the west

By: Melanie Phillips. June 18, 2021:

The Palestinian war against Israel is no longer something that the west can regard as a quarrel in a far-away country between people of whom they know nothing.

At a recent congressional hearing in America, Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-Minn.), who has a long history of antisemitic and anti-Israel remarks, equated the United States and Israel with Hamas and the Taliban in committing “crimes against humanity.” When 12 Jewish Democrats accused her of bigotry, she and her allies accused them of racism and Islamophobia.

Any criticism of Muslims elicits such taunts from so-called progressives, many if not most of whom also regard Israel with distaste or worse.

Emboldened by such impunity, the lies and incitement continue. This week, Rep. Rashida Tlaib (D-Mich.) slandered Israel by saying it “doesn’t value Palestinian lives” and accusing it falsely of “a decades-long ethnic-cleansing project.”

Meanwhile, as a direct result of such demonisation of Israel and its associated Jew-baiting, attacks on American Jews are at record levels — and the Democratic Party is fast losing its moral and political moorings as it allows itself to be dragged behind the narrative of Palestinian lies.

The way in which Palestinianism is driving antisemitism and Islamisation is on even more shocking display in Britain, where attacks on Jews are running at even higher levels.

Such attacks are disproportionately committed by Muslims. These are also disproportionately represented at pro-Palestinian marches where they scream for the destruction of Israel and chant in Arabic “Khaybar ya yahud” — a threatening reference to Mohammed’s slaughter of the Jews of Khaybar in the seventh century.

Antisemitism and Palestinianism feed each other. Britain’s Jewish Chronicle has obtained a recorded tape of remarks made by members of a convoy travelling from Bradford to London for a pro-Palestinian demonstration last weekend. At this rally, where speakers made repeated claims that Hamas was a legitimate resistance force, there were placards calling Israel a “Nazi state” and which asked: “What is antisemitic in saying that all Jews support violence and imperialism?”

On the tape, Muslim activists referred to Israel’s new prime minister, Naftali Bennett, as “a bigger Satan” than Benjamin Netanyahu, claimed that the United Nations was being manipulated by a shady network in favour of Israel and called these Israel supporters dajjals, or mythological demons. A month previously, a convoy flying Palestinian flags drove through Jewish areas of London with activists shouting “f*** the Jews, rape their daughters” out of car windows.

Yet a number of Labour Party politicians are helping fuel this venomous hysteria and incitement. During a debate on “Israel-Palestine” on Monday, Labour MPs called for a boycott of Israel.

Addressing Bennett, Bradford MP Naz Shah, who has a history of anti-Jewish remarks, described Israel’s understanding of the right to self-defence as “perverted” and said if any more “Palestinian blood” was “unjustly spilled” she would push for Israel to be tried for war crimes in the International Criminal Court.

Labour MPs regularly take part in demonstrations where marchers chant for the destruction of Israel and the killing of Jews. At one such rally in Bradford earlier this month that featured an appearance by Shah, activists chanted in Arabic: “God, make us part of the mujahideen in Palestine” and “God, lift the curse of the Jews off the Muslims in Palestine”.

Not only is Palestinianism fuelling anti-Jewish hysteria and attacks, but it is also increasingly cowing the British into acceding to its dictates which fly in the face of fairness, decency and reason.

Following last month’s violence in Israel and Gaza, pupils at a high school in Manchester raised money for charities aiding Palestinians. But there was uproar when it was revealed that the funds were to go to the Red Cross, which aids Israeli and Palestinian victims of violence alike.

One parent said: “Imagine funding terrorists who kill babies, children and elderly innocent people. The IDF exactly do that.” Another parent, named Tom Price, said: “A nuclear superpower that subjugates and murders an indigenous people and gets away with breaking international law on a daily basis has no need for the money.”

Yet the head teacher “unreservedly” apologised for having inadvertently “caused offence to some members of the wider community” — grotesquely, just for supporting aid to Israelis alongside Palestinians — and thanked “leaders of our local mosques, our governors and the wider community who offered support and counsel”.

Even more eye-opening is how the Palestinian cause has become a major issue in the imminent parliamentary by-election in the Yorkshire seat of Batley and Spen.

This is because of the constituency’s significant proportion of Muslim voters, who have been galvanised by the demagogic George Galloway—a virulent pro-Palestinian extremist, who was expelled from the Labour Party almost two decades ago and who is standing for election on an anti-Zionist platform that whips up hostility to Israel and hysteria over “Islamophobia.”

So extraordinarily, a foreign issue in which Britain is not involved is insinuating itself into the centre of British politics and culture, corrupting both with its agenda of obsessional bigotry against Israel and the Jewish people.

In driving the spike in antisemitism, Palestinianism is opening up a posthumous Nazi front against the Jews.

If this sounds outlandish and monstrous, it is. But the evidence suggests that it is nevertheless an all-too realistic description of what is now taking place.

When Hitler was defeated, the war against the Jewish people seemed to be over. But it wasn’t. Western antisemitism merely went underground, waiting to be released again as the natural order of things.

And in one part of the world, the war against the Jews was about to enter a new phase. Under the Grand Mufti of Jerusalem, Haj Amin al-Husseini, the Arabs of British Mandatory Palestine had become Hitler’s legion in the Middle East. Fusing Nazism and Islamic fundamentalism, al-Husseini incited the Palestinian Arab masses to murderous pogroms with the lie that the Jews were about to destroy the Al-Aqsa mosque.

Exactly the same rhetoric emanates today from the Palestinian Authority and incited the recent terror upsurge by Palestinians and Israeli Arabs. The PA, led by the Holocaust-denier Mahmoud Abbas who on his own account hero-worships al-Husseini, pumps out Nazi-themed antisemitism week in, week out, brain-washing its people into murderous hatred against the Jews.

Furthermore, both the Palestinian cause and Palestinian “identity” itself are based on the attempted theft and appropriation of the historic homeland and history of the Jews— the indigenous people of the land of Israel.

So it’s not just that the demonisation and delegitimisation of Israel are fundamentally anti-Jew. What’s not properly understood is that Palestinianism is antisemitism.

Western liberals who support the Palestinian cause are supporting a profoundly anti-Jewish agenda, not only to steal the land of the Jewish people but to wipe out their history and thus their identity.

Far more ominously, this is also the passionately held default narrative for millions of Muslims who have settled in Britain and other western countries.

As they become more assimilated, and their children enter the professions and political life — in itself a welcome development in terms of social acceptance — they are unfortunately seeding this poisonous narrative throughout British society.

A lethal obsession once confined to the far left is now gaining enormous cultural traction through the number of British Muslims developing public influence (with the sterling exception of those few British Muslims who take a brave and principled public stand against Jew-hatred). But anyone who dares point this out is denounced as a racist and Islamophobe.

This strategy of cultural manipulation and intimidation threatens to push British politicians into hostility towards Israel. It is actively imperilling the security of British Jews. And it is undermining the integrity and values of Britain itself, as its cultural leaders increasingly kow-tow to its dictates through ignorance, ideology or fear. And America is going in the same direction.

Palestinianism is no longer just about the Middle East. It’s now providing cultural rocket boosters behind both antisemitism and Islamisation in the west.
