Antifa militant and convicted pedophile Blake David Hampe was arrested in the early hours of Saturday following his alleged stabbing of a black Trump supporter in Portland.

The Trump supporter and conservative, who goes by the name Black Rebel on social media, posted several updates to his condition from the ambulance and hospital. In the Periscope livestream, he alleged that Hampe had stalked him and his group of friends for several blocks in Portland before stabbing him.

Black Rebel stated that Antifa militants doxed his identity and posted his location on social media and advised each other to "watch out" for him.

"That knife was long enough. He stabbed me to kill me," said Black Rebel, who says that he spotted Hampe, who was part of a group of Antifa following his group of friends for several blocks before he approached Hampe to ask why he was following them.

Comment: The incident was caught by Black Rebel's cameraman.

Thousands protest outside Israeli PM Netanyahu's official residence as unrest rises over economy, handling of coronavirus

Huge crowds calling for the resignation of Israeli PM Benjamin Netanyahu rallied outside his home in Jerusalem on Saturday amid growing discontent over the government's Covid-19 response, high unemployment, and corruption.

More than 5,000 people gathered on Balfour Street, now a site of frequent anti-government demonstrations, according to Haaretz newspaper, making it the biggest of several protests this week. Demonstrators also rallied elsewhere in Israel.


Comment: Netanyahu's apathy, corruption and incompetence towards his own is so obvious, to so many, that even a portion of the Israeli public has had enough of the erstwhile IDF "hero".

The real NHS crisis: 250,000 nurses consider quitting because of low pay

EXCLUSIVE: The worrying stats come days after Chancellor Rishi Sunak was slammed for failing to give frontline NHS staff payrise - despite rewarding other key workers
Up to a quarter of a million nurses are now considering quitting their jobs because of pitifully low pay.

Many of them erupted in fury days ago when the Chancellor Rishi Sunak announced wage rises for 900,000 public sector workers but left them out.

Boris Johnson and Matt Hancock have been quick to praise nurses during the pandemic - but the warm words have not been matched by more pay.

Nurses are threatening to leave in their droves unless the Government quickly comes up with significantly more than the 2.8 per cent rise promised to doctors.

Comment: The government's treatment of the NHS likely reflects it's intentions to sell it off to the highest bidder, in the meantime it will abuse it for publicity purposes all the while running it into the ground:

Government-mandated masks and vaccines are unreasonable, unethical, unconstitutional, and unhealthy. I absolutely refuse to participate in either

coronavirus
What I'm going to say is based on my experience thus far and the research I do. I've noticed that there's a grave disparity between what we see on the mainstream news - as well as some independent, online sources - and what many other doctors and scientists who are not promoted by the MSM are saying.

The government and their affiliated "experts" have gone back and forth on whether masks actually prevent the spread of Covid. They have gone back and forth on whether asymptomatic people can transmit Covid. They have gone back and forth about whether it is actually airborne or not. How are we to actually believe what we're told?

I've seen video after video after video of doctors and field experts saying that when they test people in hospitals six times and all six are positive, that all six are counted as new cases. I've seen doctors and nurses saying that they are made to put suspected patients in the same rooms as patients who have tested positive. I've seen videos of people saying they've submitted unused test swabs in and they all tested positive. I've seen many reports about Florida alone saying that all the clinics "messed up" by only including positive tests in their press releases. I've seen reports about animals and fruit testing positive when submitting human test samples in other countries.

Pushing edgy people to the fringes of the internet silences free speech and silos discourse

edgy content creators

The goal of removing the opposition entirely from mainstream platforms is to censor discourse and to close off avenues of debate or inquiry.
It is virtually an axiom of intellectual discourse that voices considered too dangerous or disruptive to be allowed on television, radio, and in print tend to maintain a high demand for their material. The goal of removing the opposition entirely from mainstream platforms is to censor discourse and to close off avenues of debate or inquiry.

Another effect is that discourse will be siloed, relegated to echo chambers, and neither side of the division line will hear the views of the other. The progressive left has entirely forgotten that free speech is essential and foundational to any healthy democracy.

Gavin McInnes' Censored TV and the emergence of the social media alternative, Parler, are two platforms created as a way to combat YouTube and Twitter. Their aim is to give a platform for voices that have been forced out of the mainstream for what the progressive left would consider to be insensitive, extreme, or just plain dangerous.

Burning Christianity: Europe's churches are under attack

church burn
Conspiracy theories aren't something I take seriously. But when flames engulfed Notre-Dame cathedral in Paris on the evening of April 15, 2019, my mind momentarily wandered down that path. After all, attempts to incinerate, vandalize and rob Christian churches and shrines have become so commonplace in France over the past three years that one could be forgiven for concluding that something even more sinister was afoot.

In 2017 alone, according to France's Interior Ministry, 878 acts of vandalism were committed against Christian places of worship, cemeteries and shrines. That's an average of nearly two and a half sites being targeted every day.

Government officials play down the problem. As one French bishop told me, they believe that directing attention to church burnings and theft could encourage copycat behavior. But, he added, they also fear publicity might fuel an existing concern among the population: that the state isn't fully in control of law and order. This perception is underscored by realities such as no-go areas for the police in some French cities and ongoing gilets jaunes protests. Most French newspapers have acquiesced in this silence. That's why you need to turn to organizations like the Vienna-based Observatory on Intolerance and Discrimination against Christians in Europe to discover what's going on.

Comment: The reaction to the Notre Dame arson shows that a significant proportion of people still feel, deep down, despite claims that society is now dominated by the irreligious, that these spaces represent a spiritual and cultural heritage that is as important, likely even more so, than any museum:

nantes cathedral fire

A Rwandan refugee faces up to 10 years in prison after confessing to an arson attack on Nantes cathedral last week.
A Rwandan refugee could face up to 10 years in prison after admitting setting fire to Nantes cathedral.

The 39-year-old man, who has solely been identified by his first name Emmanuel, worked as a volunteer security guard at the 15th-century Cathedral of Saint Peter and Saint Paint which set alight last week.

Three fires had been started at the site on July 18 and it took 104 firefighters to control the blaze which tore through the building and caused millions of pounds worth of damage.

Covid-19 Pandemic: The Ultimate Divide-and-Conquer

social distancing
It has frequently been observed that terror can rule absolutely only over people who are isolated against each other and that therefore one of the primary concerns of tyrannical government is to bring this isolation about. Isolation may be the beginning of terror; it certainly is its most fertile ground; it always is its result. This isolation is, as it were, pretotalitarian; its hallmark is impotence insofar as power always comes from people acting together, acting in concert; isolated people are powerless by definition."

Hannah Arendt, The Origins of Totalitarianism
Western civilization, led by the US government and media, has embarked upon a campaign of mass psychological terrorism designed to cover for the collapsing economy, set up a new pretext for Wall Street's ongoing plunder expedition, radically escalate the police state, deeply traumatize people into submission to total social conformity, and radically aggravate the anti-social, anti-human atomization of the people.

The pretext for this abomination is an epidemic which objectively is comparable to the seasonal flu and is caused by the same kind of Coronavirus we've endured so long without totalitarian rampages and mass insanity.

The global evidence is converging on the facts: This flu is somewhat more contagious than the norm and is especially dangerous for those who are aged and already in poor health from pre-existing maladies. It is not especially dangerous for the rest of the population.

The exodus begins: Joe Rogan is leaving LA for Texas because he wants "a little bit more freedom"

joe rogan
We have often wondered why people pay for the "privilege" to live in places like California; where taxes are sky high, likely heading higher, the government is bloated and intrusive and Democratic leadership seems to have no real interest in either being fiscally responsible or (lately) maintaining law and order.

Perhaps that's what the world's most popular podcaster, Joe Rogan has also wondered. Because according to a new report by The Blaze, Rogan is on his way out of California and heading to Texas because he wants "a little bit more freedom".

On one of his latest podcasts, Rogan said: "I'm outta here. I'm gonna go to Texas. I just want to go somewhere in the center of the country, somewhere it's easier to travel to both places, and somewhere where you have a little bit more freedom."

Ontario lawyer files lawsuit against feds, province & CBC over Covid-19 measures & masks

Rocco Galati
Rocco Galati recently discussed the upcoming lawsuit against members of the Canadian Government, the CBC, as well as the topic of mandatory masking. Galati is a constitutional lawyer in Ontario and has been practising law for 31 years, he began his career with the federal department of justice.

During a July 17 interview with Amanda Forbes he said he has filed a constitutional challenge in the Ontario Superior Court on behalf of his clients seeking declatory and injunctive relief against Covid19 measures.

Galati said that both the federal as well as provincial governments have "effectively dispensed with parliament and are ruling by royal decree as it were which is unconstitutional." He is especially concerned about Ontario's Bill 195 in which the government can implement executive orders on an ongoing basis with the extension of emergency measures possible for years to come. Galati said this is "unheard of."

In the claim Galati has named the Trudeau government, Ford's provincial government and the mayor of Toronto John Tory.

Apart from constitutional breaches which Galati said are "freedom of conscience, association, belief, right to life, liberty and security, your right against unreasonable search and seizure for the closure of businesses in an arbitrary and irrational manner, the right against arbitrary detention when bylaw officers stop you and ask you for information they are not allowed to ask. But also for the discriminatory way in which people with physical and neurological disabilities have been left out in the cold."
