European Establishment BTFO! Austria Elects Conservative As Chancellor, While Nationalist Party Comes In Second Place Reader 10/15/2017 (Sun) 16:29:21 Id: 4a7592 [Preview] No. 2402 [Reply] [Last 50 Posts]
In another stunning defeat for Europe's establishment, as previewed earlier this morning Austria's 31-year-old Sebastian Kurz is assured victory in the Austrian National Council elections, becoming Chancellor with his center-right People's Party set to take roughly 30.2% of the vote - the best result in almost two decades - according to exit polls by Austrian broadcaster ORF, while just as shocking is that the anti-immigrant, nationalist Freedom Party appears set to top the Social Democrats in 2nd place with 26.8% of the vote: the two parties are expected to form a coalition government. If confirmed out by final results, that would be its strongest performance for the Freedom Party since the 26.9% it won in 1999 when the party was led by the charismatic Jorg Haider. Meanwhile, Chancellor Christian Kern's Social Democrats are looking at another devastating - for Europe's establishment - loss, sliding to 3rd spot with just 26.3% of the vote.

The full breakdown from the initial exit polls vs the last election results in 2013:

People’s Party (Foreign Minister Sebastian Kurz) 30.5% vs 24% (fiscal conservative party)
Freedom Party (Heinz-Christian Strache) 26.8% vs 20.5% (real nationalist party: https://archive.fo/ffOpp)
Social Democrats (Chancellor Christian Kern) 26.2% vs 26.8% in 2013-------(Former Establishment Powerhold)
Neos (Matthias Strolz) 5.3% vs 5%
Greens (Ulrike Lunacek) 4.7% vs 12.4%
Liste Pilz (Peter Pilz) 4.3% (didn’t run in 2013)

It remains to be seen if and how Kurz will form a coalition with the anti-immigrant Freedom Party - a historic outcome for the nationalist party which could enter government for the first time in history - however one thing is clear: just like in Germany, where Merkel's CDU/CSU suffered its worst result since 1949, so in Austria the "establishment" SPÖ, or Social Democrat party just suffered what Europe Elects described as the "worst result since Hitler rule."

We now await the market's reaction to the news that Europe's populist anti-establishment, anti-immigrant revolt, considered to have been dead and buried following the French elections, was not only revived after last month's German election, but is once again thriving.

World’s Youngest Leader Elected In Austria Vows To Destroy ‘New World Order’, Leave EU Reader 10/16/2017 (Mon) 15:03:28 Id: 42d790 [Preview] No. 2417 del
The world’s youngest world leader, 31-year-old Sebastian Kurz, has vowed to destroy the New World Order and leave the European Union.

The Austrian foreign minister and leader of Austria’s People’s Party, declared victory in the national election on Sunday after over 90 percent of the ballots had been counted.

Kurz, an anti-immigrant and eurosceptic Conservative, said: ‘I would of course like to form a stable government. If that cannot be done then there are other options,’ adding that he planned to consult with all parties but would first wait for a count of postal ballots that begins on Monday.

Kurz wants to slash Austria’s red tape and has repeatedly said during his campaign that the Austrian people are sick of ‘New World Order globalist policies by EU elites’ – which he says he will end when elected.

Dailymail.co.uk reports: As well as his pledge on payouts to migrants, Kurz wants to slash Austria’s red tape and keep the EU out of national affairs.

At 31, Kurz is young even by the standards of Europe’s recent youth movement, which saw Macron enter the Elysee Palace at the age of 39 and Christian Lindner, 38, lead Germany’s liberal Free Democrats (FDP) back into the Bundestag.

Kurz and Lindner showed that young new faces can inject dynamism into old establishment parties that have lost their way with voters.

Kurz rebranded the OVP as the New People’s Party and changed its colours from black to turquoise.

Lindner used trendy black-and-white campaign posters that showed him staring at his smartphone to revitalise the FDP’s image.

War Against Fake News Propaganda Begins: Record Americans Are Now Cutting Cable TV As Hollywood Stocks Tumble Reader 10/15/2017 (Sun) 14:05:04 Id: 1ab3b6 [Preview] No. 2396 [Reply] [Last 50 Posts]
There is only one way — one! — to finally and forever destroy Hollywood and much of the mainstream media. You have to cut your cable or satellite cord. You have to cancel your pay TV package. The one-legged stool propping up ESPN, CNN, MSNBC, Disney, MTV, and the entire Tinseltown crime syndicate is you paying for cable TV.

If you want to know how this scam works, read all about it here: https://archive.fo/Gtb51

If you want to know what do to after you cut the cord for America, read all about it here: https://archive.fo/xnqCH

Not to put too fine a point on it, but there is no single act any American can perform that will do more damage to the institutional left than to cut your cable/satellite cord. So please do so today. If that sounds like hyperbole, look at the recent news, look at what cord-cutting is already doing to Hollywood:

Pay-TV Companies Are in Crisis Mode

Investors in traditional TV providers are reeling as companies from AT&T Inc. to Viacom Inc. fail to stop the desertion of customers lured away by cheaper entertainment options such as Netflix and Snapchat.

AT&T, whose ownership of the DirecTV satellite service makes it the biggest U.S. pay-television provider, said late Wednesday it will report a third-quarter loss of 390,000 satellite and cable customers, echoing a similar warning weeks earlier from Comcast Corp. The same night, Viacom cautioned that its distribution deal with Charter Communications Inc., the second-biggest cable U.S. company, may lead to a blackout, potentially testing whether millions of viewers are willing to go without MTV and Nickelodeon.

But wait, the news gets even better!

Besides Neflix of Hulu, look into Tigerstream. It's a one-time-only payment service that provides you with a box you hook up to your TV and internet. You pay $400 for the box (NO monthly fees!) and it provides you with EVERYTHING. All cable channels, premium channels included, free 'pay-per-viewing' at no cost, comes with a Neflix AND Hulu account built-in so you can watch streaming services, all sports channels and much much more.

Fair enough. This was just a tip I give normfags to convince them to cut the cable. I myself don't buy this, I just download and rip shit I get over the internet most of the time. My favorite sitcoms or movies I buy on DVD - IF they are on sale or IF I can't pirate them anywhere else online.

Otherwise if you don't give normfags an incentive to cut cable usually they'll end up wasting their money and keep feeding the greedy beasts.

We need a cable-cutting movement like this, if the networks start hurting this means the propaganda is not working very well.



Alex Jones: 'I Was Sexually Abused By Hollywood Elite' Reader 10/15/2017 (Sun) 21:48:47 Id: fe018e [Preview] No. 2405 [Reply] [Last 50 Posts]
Infowars founder and host Alex Jones claims he was “molested” by powerful Hollywood executives on “multiple occasions,” and that he feels the sexual assaults were part of a “weird handshake ritual of dominance.“

“I’ve had Hollywood producers grab me by the genitals, twice, and I’ve had them pat me on the butt many other times, and that’s why, one reason, I don’t go out there,” Jones said Friday on his radio show.

“I was just thinking about it — I had suppressed it, I had repressed it — one other Hollywood producer, three of them, grabbed my genitals,” he added, as reported by The Washington Times.

Jones did not name those he accused of sexual assault, but did mention that he had considered one of them to be “a good person — one of the few people in Hollywood,” before the alleged assault.

Western Journalism reports: Film producer Harvey Weinstein is the the latest major Hollywood figure to be accused of sexual misconduct. Weinstein denies many of the allegations he faces, including charges from three women that he raped them.

But similar accusations have been made against other Hollywood producers and well-known figures in the industry as far back as the mid-twentieth century, according to Time Magazine.

While the recent allegations have come from female victims, Jones argued that assaulting women is a “secondary” act.

“Going after the women is only secondary and only to humiliate them. It’s really about men dominating other men, and its not even for the gay sex. It’s an act of domination,” Jones said.

He added that he felt the assaults were meant to test him, explaining, “It was like a weird handshake ritual of dominance to see what I’d do.”

Although the "anti-semitic" fears are likely hyperbole as usual, I endorse the US withdrawing from the UN completely. It is an unelected bureaucracy who lobbies to change our laws, our foreign policy and even domestic economic policies. The UN has also have been lobbying politicians to push their UN "Agenda 21" (seriously look that shit up, its wicked) and amnesty policies to financially rape the US. Not to mention lobbying for disarming the American public.

So I could really care less is we cut off one of the many UN tentacles.

I'm not saying UNESCO was wrong in drawing this conclusion, in fact recently the UN has been correct pointing out some of the corruption and crimes of the Israeli government.

What I do know is there are still a lot of bad bureaucrats within the UN trying to undermine sovereign nations (not just the US, but around the globe). Such as supporting Soros' amnesty/open border destabilization policies. Their communistic Agenda 21 manifesto. Promoting Saudi Arabia (which have ties to CIA & MOSSAD) as a symbol for "human rights" (which is backwards as fuck because they torture and kill their own citizens and neighboring populations like Yemen).

So don't be assured just because they have beef with a country you don't like that it somehow translates to them being on your side when it comes to other issues. The UN is still 100% for white genocide and destroying national sovereignty.

British Gestapo Arrest 3,395 Citizens For Being 'Politically Incorrect' Online Reader 10/15/2017 (Sun) 02:23:03 Id: 5a5373 [Preview] No. 2393 [Reply] [Last 50 Posts]
In the last year, British police have arrested at least 3,395 citizens – nine people per day – for being “politically incorrect” on social media.

According to data obtained by The Times through the Freedom of Information Act, 29 police forces arrested thousands of citizens under section 127 of the Communications Act 2003, which makes it illegal to “cause annoyance, inconvenience or needless anxiety to another.”

The true figure is likely to be significantly higher, as thirteen police forces refused to provide the requested information and two did not provide usable data.

Around half of the investigations were abandoned before being brought to prosecution, which critics say is an indication that the authorities are being excessively strict in their interpretation of the law’s restrictions on freedom of speech.

Nevertheless, many forces have massively stepped up their focus on so-called trolls, with the number of arrests by West Midlands Police having increased by an astonishing 877 per cent since 2014.

With Home Secretary Amber Rudd’s announcement of a special national police hub focused on online hate last week, it is expected that these numbers will only increase.

Jim Killock, executive director of the Open Rights Group, said: “the problem is ‘grossly offensive’ is not something you should normally be prosecuted for. It’s not showing harm to other people. It’s not showing that somebody is being … attacked or threatened.”

The seeming inconsistency in the enforcement of free speech restrictions has also been a source of contention, with the Metropolitan Police — who detained 867 people in 2016, according to the Times figures — appearing reluctant to investigate people such as Nadia Chan, the self-described Islamist who was revealed as having made a number of deeply racist remarks about white people on social media after an appearance on public broadcaster Channel 4.

Trump Ends Socialist Obamacare Bailouts: No More Subsidies For Corrupt Insurance Racketeering Reader 10/14/2017 (Sat) 19:10:22 Id: a915ca [Preview] No. 2388 [Reply] [Last 50 Posts]
In this day and age, it’s interesting to see all three branches of government agree on something. Bailing out insurance companies against the will of the court and Congress is coming to an end.

The payments had specifically been denied by Congress but President Obama had made them anyway, drawing a rebuke from a court who said he was overstepping his powers. The case has raged for months, and both the Obama and Trump administrations had continued making payments — until now.

White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders, in a statement, said the Justice Department has concluded the judge’s ruling is correct, and there is no valid legal ability to make the payments.

What does this mean for ObamaCare?

Without that estimated 7 billion in rent-money, insurers would have to go to customers to cover the actual cost of the coverage ObamaCare mandates. Already sky-rocketing rates would go higher. Or maybe not.

The move comes just hours after Mr. Trump signed an executive order pushing his administration to allow association health plans, which would allow individuals and small businesses to join up and purchase insurance on the group market across state lines.

Association plans are a boon for those struggling with high-cost plans, though analysts say it could sap those customers — and their high premiums — from existing markets, leaving the sick and elderly to pay more because their costs are no longer subsidized by the healthy.

Combined, the association health plans and the renunciation of cost-sharing payments amount to Mr. Trump ripping the band-aid off Obamacare, forcing Congress to confront the program with all the warts it’s sprouted over the years.

ObamaCare gave s much authority to the executive branch that Presidents and Secretary’s shall-ing this or that in and out of existence will continue to plague us until Congress “takes T-Bird away.”

Good! Donald Trump Bypasses Cucked Congress, Signs EO To Allow Citizens To Buy Cheaper Health Insurance Across State Lines Reader 10/12/2017 (Thu) 19:01:09 Id: af8578 [Preview] No. 2379 [Reply] [Last 50 Posts]
President Donald Trump signed an executive order Thursday that will allow Americans to purchase health insurance across state lines.

The order is intended to expand choices to current Obamacare plans and increase competition so that costs come down for consumers.

"The time has come to give Americans the freedom to purchase health insurance across state lines, which will create a truly competitive national marketplace that will bring costs way down and provide far better care," President Trump said.

Under the order, the secretary of labor will consider allowing American employers to form groups across states, which will expand access to Association Health Plans.

This action is intended to make it easier for employers to come together and give workers more options at lower rates in a large group market.

The executive order instructs three agencies—the Department of Health and Human Services, Treasury, and Labor—to consider increasing health care coverage through short-term limited duration insurance, which is not subject to the Affordable Care Act's rules and mandates. This type of insurance usually has high coverage limits and more providers.

The order also directs the same three agencies to make changes to Health Reimbursement Arrangements—employer-funded accounts—so workers would have more control and flexibility with spending on their health care needs.

According to Ed Haislmaier, a senior research fellow at the Heritage Foundation, the executive order Trump signed today is just the beginning of the process, but it's a move in the right direction for those who have been adversely affected by Obamacare.

"There won’t be any actual changes until they complete the regulatory revision process," Haislmaier said. "An executive order by itself doesn’t change regulations."

While I agree that competition in a good thing, this isn't realistically something any insurance company would utilize. It's pretty hard to fund the marketing and in-state regulatory compliance for different states, not to mention health insurance is basically already consolidated to four major companies. Great idea in concept, worthless in practice (unless someone in the cucked congress uses the anti-trust laws...)
