  1. September 27 2021 Dutch PM target of organized crime attack, abduction: Report
    https://nltimes.nl/2021/09/27/dutch-pm-target-organized-crime-attack-abduction-report
    Prime Minister Mark Rutte has been under extra security these past weeks because he may be the target of an attack or abduction by organized crime, sources told newspaper De Telegraaf. Spotters – “suspicions persons affiliated with the Mocro mafia – was seen around the Prime Minister, the newspaper’s sources said.
    The extra security consists of visible and invisible measures. Security guards from the Royal and Diplomatic Security Service were increasingly seen in the Binnenhof around cabinet meetings, according to the newspaper. An “elite security guard” was prominently visible during the Budget Debate last week. “For Wilders, everyone thought. But he also turned out to be keeping an eye out for Rutte,” the newspaper wrote.
    PVV leader Geert Wilders has been under high security for years.
    Both the Public Prosecution Service (OM), which would investigate possible threats against the Prime Minister, and the National Coordinator for Counter-terrorism and Security (NCTV) refused to comment to the newspaper about this matter. “We never make statements about security situations and security measures,” an OM spokesperson said.

    September 27 2021 Extra security for Rutte amid fears of growing underworld threat
    https://www.dutchnews.nl/news/2021/09/extra-security-for-rutte-amid-fears-of-growing-underworld-threat/
    Caretaker prime minister Mark Rutte has been given extra personal protection amid concern that gangsters may be plotting to kidnap him. The Telegraaf reported that intelligence agencies acted after ‘spotters’ – people hired by criminal gangs to prepare the ground for an attack or kidnap – were observed in Rutte’s vicinity. The public prosecution service and intelligence agencies would not say whether Rutte’s security detail had been stepped up, but other media organisations including NOS and nu.nl confirmed the reports through their own sources. ‘We never disclose anything about security situations and protective measures,’ a spokesman for the prosecution service said. The Telegraaf reported that specially trained officers from the Royal and Diplomatic Protection Service (DKDB) had been assigned to the prime minister, with a combination of ‘visible and invisible’ measures. A security officer took up a more prominent position than usual in the temporary parliamentary chamber during the two-day budget debate last week. It was assumed to be extra cover for PVV party leader Geert Wilders, who has had high-level protection since the assassination of film-maker Theo van Gogh more than 15 years ago, but the Telegraaf reported that the officer was also assigned to Mark Rutte. Rutte has kept his security detail low-key during his 11 years as prime minister, travelling to and from work by bicycle and walking around The Hague unguarded. But the assassination of public figures such as journalist Peter R. de Vries and lawyer Derk Wiersum have raised fears that ministers and politicians could be targeted. Last week finance minister Wopke Hoekstra announced an extra €400 million would be spent next year on measures to combat organised crime, including more extensive personal security.

  2. SEPTEMBER 27, 2021 “Wouldn’t wish it on anyone,” Wilders says about PM Rutte’s extra security
    https://nltimes.nl/2021/09/27/wouldnt-wish-anyone-wilders-says-pm-ruttes-extra-security
    PVV leader Geert Wilders responded to reports of Prime Minister Mark Rutte getting extra security because he may be the target of an abduction or attack from the organized crime world, by wishing him luck on Twitter.
    “Terrible. I wouldn’t wish this on anyone. Good luck Prime Minister Rutte,” the PVV leader tweeted. Wilders has been living with high security for years because he faces constant threats, mainly due to his very vocal opposition to Islam.
    Newspaper De Telegraaf reported that the Prime Minister was given extra security because people from the organized crime world was targeting him. “Spotters” linked to the “Mocro-mafia” were observed near Rutte “at various times”, De Telegraaf journalist Mick van Wely said on TV program Goedenmorgen Nederland on Monday morning. “We know it’s taken very seriously and there are really big concerns about this.”
    In the criminal world, “spotters” refer to people who hang around potential crime scenes or victims to scout out how to best tackle an attack or abduction, so that a plan can be drawn up.
    After the murder of criminal defense attorney Derk Wiersum in 2019, extra security was given to dozens of people in the criminal justice chain. Sources told NOS that between 20 and 30 people were given extra security, including judges and prosecutors involved in the Marengo trial against Ridouan Taghi . Wiersum was representing Nabil B., the key witness in the Taghi case, when he got murdered. Taghi and the alleged gang around him are suspected of multiple assassinations.
    After crime reporter Peter R. de Vries, who acted as Nabil B.’s confidant, was also murdered earlier this year, the Dutch cabinet promised to push extra money into fighting organized crime. This extra money was reflected in the national budget for 2022, which was presented last week.
    According to De Telegraaf, an “elite security guard” was prominently visible during the Budget Debate last week. “For Wilders, everyone thought. But he also turned out to be keeping an eye out for Rutte,” the newspaper wrote.
    In both the murders of Wiersum and De Vries, suspicious people were seen following them in the period before they were gunned down.

  3. Yesterday was a beautiful day in these parts. We drove south of the city. Late summer slides to autumn ushering, almost imperceptibly, the move to lateral light as the sun slings lower in the sky, enriching the blues and greys and browns. We pulled over beside a farmer’s rapeseed field on a county road. In the distance were monolithic wind turbines. We wanted to see if we could hear them churning, and we did. Their low thrum carried on the air like something ‘going forward’. Beyond the massive arms turning in the wind I saw dark clouds capping these giants. The turbines evoked in my mind Godzilla, his legs trying to break free of his concrete footings so that he could roam the earth.

  4. AUSTRALIA – NSW QR code ‘likely’ to remain ‘beyond’ the December 1 reopening date for unvaccinated

    NSW Premier Gladys Berejiklian says QR code check-ins will likely remain until ‘beyond’ the December 1 reopening date for the unvaccinated.

    “We’re considering the future of QR codes in the context of tracking and tracing and isolation and quarantine; so, they are decisions we haven’t yet taken,” Ms Berejiklian said in a media conference on Monday.

    “We have time to consider what is the best way to monitor positive cases, what is the way to protect communities, what is the best way to manage the isolation or tracking, tracing and isolation process, what is the best way to advise business, vice versa.

    “We know they will be around until at least December 1 and likely to be there, I suspect, beyond that as well because there’ll always be a system in place until COVID’s around to make sure we’re monitoring the positive cases.”

    • AUSTRALIA – Unvaccinated set to lose freedoms ‘unless you get vaccinated’

      New South Wales Deputy Premier John Barilaro says those who remain unvaccinated against COVID-19 will not achieve any further freedom “unless you get vaccinated”.

      This will include people living in parts of regional NSW that are currently open, with the unvaccinated in those regions set to lose freedoms.

      “The 70 per cent roadmap does apply to the whole state – so there will be individuals in regional and rural NSW who will lose their freedoms on the 11th of October,” Mr Barilaro said.

      Mr Barilaro also announced a slight change to the NSW reopening roadmap, with travel to the regions from metropolitan areas now set to occur from an 80 per cent vaccination rate instead of the previously flagged 70 per cent.

    • AUSTRALIA – ‘Discussions taking place’ about fines for unvaccinated people

      NSW Minister for Finance and Small Business Damien Tudehope says there are “discussions taking place” regarding fines for unvaccinated people trying to enter a business.

      “Public health orders will make provision for the circumstances under which people will not be allowed to enter a business premises,” Mr Tudehope told Sky News host Sharri Markson.

      “As I understand it, they can be as much as $5000 for a person entering in circumstances where they’re unvaccinated.

      “I think it ranges from $1000 to $5000 depending upon the level of breach.

      “They’re the sort of discussions taking place, but when the public health order is drafted it’ll be clear as to its terms.”

      “Be My Apostles” To The Unvaccinated, “Who Aren’t Listening To God”

      -TRANSCRIPT HIGHLIGHT–

      We are not through this pandemic. I wished we were, but I prayed a lot to God during this time. And you know what? God did answer our prayers. He made the smartest men and women, the scientists, the doctors, the researchers, he made them come up with a vaccine. That is from God to us. And we must say, “Thank you, God. Thank you.”

      And I wear my vaccinated necklace all the time to to say “I’m vaccinated.”
      All of you. Yes, I know you’re vaccinated. You’re the smart ones. But, you know, there’s people out there who aren’t listening to God and what God wants. You know this. You know who they are. I need you to be my apostles. I need you to go out and talk about it and say: “We owe this to each other.”

      We love each other. Jesus taught us to love one another. And how do you show that love but to care about each other enough to say, “Please get vaccinated, because I love you. I want you to live.” I want our kids to be safe when they’re in schools. I want you to be safe when you go to a doctor’s office or a hospital and are treated by somebody. You don’t want to get the virus from them. You’re already sick, or you wouldn’t be there.

      We have to solve this, my friends. I need every one of you. I need you to let them know that this is how we can fight this pandemic, come back to normal, and then start talking about the real issues that we have to: fighting systemic racial injustice.

  6. sky news australia – Lancet cover story ‘totally dehumanises’ women

    Commentator and lawyer Caroline Di Russo says women have been “totally dehumanised” by a cover story in The Lancet medical journal which described them as just “bodies with vaginas”.

    “The Left have said for a long time that historically women were treated like chattels … well at least they were sentient beings,” she told Sky News host Andrew Bolt.

    “I was appalled a few months back talking about ‘people who menstruate’. Well at least ‘people who menstruate’ are sentient beings.

    “So now not only have we been deprived of our womanhood, we’ve been totally dehumanised.

    “How did we get here?”

  7. SPAIN – Incident of African witchcraft and cannibalism in Sevilla

    An incident involving African witchcraft and cannibalism has occurred in the Poligono Norte area of the city of Sevilla

    National Police officers in Sevilla were deployed last Saturday, September 18, to deal with what they have since described as one of the most bizarre incidents in the recent history of the force, as they became embroiled in a case involving African witchcraft and even cannibalism.

    They have previously dealt with cases that involved criminal gangs using voodoo or other similar forms of witchcraft to threaten girls they are looking to sexually exploit, but they had never encountered something like this event, with such violence.

    According to a police statement, the incident occurred at around 6.15am, in an apartment on Calle Virgen de Escardiel, in the Poligona Norte district of the city, with a patrol responding after neighbours had reported hearing shouting and what sounded like a fight taking place in one of the blocks.

    Upon entering the apartment, an officer encountered two women on the floor, one on top of the other, with the latter clearly seriously injured, and all witnessed by the six-year-old daughter of the alleged aggressor.

    Accused of being the perpetrator of the attack is a 45-year-old Kenyan woman, while the victim is a 48-year-old woman from the Congo, who were reportedly sharing the apartment, with police sources explaining to diariodesevilla.es that the fight had broken out after one of the women threw a bottle of water containing salt at the other, and exchanged accusations of witchcraft.

    The aggressor allegedly believed that her roommate was possessed, striking her on the head with a stone, and once they fell on the floor she proceeded to bite off and eat two of the woman’s fingers. After this, the aggressor, in an attempt to rid the other woman of the supposed demon, inserted the stone into her anus to try and extract her guts.

    It was the intervention of the National Police officers that was undoubtedly key to saving the life of the victim, who was treated at the scene by medics, and subsequently transferred to a hospital in Sevilla, while the aggressor was detained as the alleged perpetrator of attempted murder, before being taken to a hospital, where she was admitted to the psychiatric department.

    Once discharged, she will go to prison, and after an investigation by the Family and Attention to Women Unit (UFAM) of Sevilla Police, the judge has cautiously withdrawn the guardianship of the six-year-old daughter who witnessed the events.

  8. Sudanese FM downplays Israel ties, says no plans for Israeli embassy in Khartoum

    Sudan’s foreign minister has downplayed the country’s emerging ties with Israel, saying that there are currently no plans to establish an Israeli embassy in Khartoum.

    In an interview published with The National Sunday, 11 months after the announcement of normalization between the countries, Mariam al-Sadiq al-Mahdi said that there is “not any sign of normalization with Israel.”

    Nonetheless, in April, the Sudanese cabinet abolished a 63-year-old Israel boycott law. And last week, Sudanese authorities seized assets of companies linked to the Hamas terror group, which rules the Gaza Strip.

    “There is no talk at any official level,” al-Mahdi said, adding that “abolishing a law on boycotting Israel does not mean that we consider opening an Israeli embassy in Khartoum.”

    Al-Mahdi said that Sudan agreed to normalization so as to improve economic ties with the rest of the globe by becoming a member of the World Trade Organization.

    …Ties with Israel are “completely linked to lifting Sudan off the US state sponsors of terrorism list….”

  9. Three injured in fire at Iran Guards’ research facility

    Three people were injured Sunday in a fire at a research center belonging to the Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps, Iran state TV reported. Citing a statement from the IRGC, the report said the fire, at a site west of Tehran, was brought under control.

    …The report did not indicate the extent of the damage from the blaze, or the possible cause. The powerful IRGC controls major aspects of Iran’s security facilities and operations. Several mysterious incidents have in recent years damaged Iranian facilities, including those tied to its defense establishment or its nuclear program.

  10. Israel’s West Bank raid proves Hamas is trying to have it both ways

    Analysis: While the terror outfit is negotiating an agreement with Israel on the reconstruction of the Gaza Strip following their last standoff in May, it is also scheming plots against the Jewish state to create a unified front against it

    Hamas has been working to establish armed, well-organized terrorist capabilities in the West Bank with help from the group’s leadership, operating from Turkey and Lebanon.

    Building such capabilities took many months, and included funneling funds for the purchase of weapons by terror units that have already begun training for an attack, and conveying the know-how necessary to produce homemade explosives….

    Through a combination of human and technological intelligence gathering, the scale of such infrastructure – which took shape under the nose of the Palestinian Authority, and of Israeli security forces to some extent – became clear.

    With these capabilities, Hamas is trying to achieve two strategic goals. First, as mentioned above, is positioning itself as a leading Islamist armed group that is true to its basic ideology.

    Second is its attempts to drag the IDF into open conflict in key areas throughout the West Bank, thereby discrediting the Palestinian Authority and its security apparatus as Israel collaborators….

  11. Amb. Dore Gold:
    The Iranian Nuclear Threat Is Not Years Away – It Is Now

    There are three elements involved in having an operational nuclear weapons program.
    First, Iran needs a delivery system to carry its nuclear weapons to a target. Iran has the Shahab-3 missile with a range of 1,300 km. – the distance required to strike Israel from bases located on Iranian territory. Iran has created a system of underground missile bases, where it could launch its missiles from silos.

    Second is the weaponization of uranium into an actual explosive device. The International Atomic Energy Agency reported in May 2011 on Iranian military research that included “the removal of the high conventional explosive payload from the warhead of the Shahab-3 missile and replacing it with a spherical nuclear payload.”

    Third, to build a nuclear warhead, the uranium has to be in the form of metal. In August 2021, the IAEA verified that Iran was producing uranium metal…

  12. ‘My friends joined the Islamic State, I enlisted in the IDF’

    Until a few years ago, Yoel Levi, 21, never thought that one day he would live in Israel and enlist in one of Israel Defense Forces’ (IDF) combat units.

    He was born in Melilla, an autonomous Spanish city located on the northwest coast of Africa next to Morocco where the majority of the population is Muslim.

    “Everyone thought my mother was a Muslim and my father a Christian. Had they known I was Jewish, it would not have been good for me … Melilla has changed. In the past, there were many Jews there but now there are almost none.”

    Levi claims that Melilla has turned into an Islamic State hub in recent years. “If you ask children what they want to do when they grow up, the answer for many would be to wage a ‘holy war,’ which means terrorist attacks.”

    As he was about to graduate high school, something began to change inside the young man after he had learned that three of his classmates joined the jihadist group. “Every time they talked about Israel, which of course they would call Palestine, I would see the hatred in their eyes,” he recalls.

    “One day, a boy from my class did not show up to school, and I saw the other classmates were really sad. I asked what happened, and they said the police arrested him after they found out he had joined ISIS. It was not an unusual thing, but it made me think about what I wanted to do next. After seeing the hatred of the people who grew up with me, I decided to enlist in the IDF….”

    His parents remained in the Spanish city, still unaware of their son becoming an IDF soldier. Levi says he feels it “will be too much for them to bear….”

  13. Retired Wisconsin Supreme Court Justice Blows Whistle On The 2020 Election

    (Tea Party 247) – Despite the fact that the mainstream media and Democrats have insisted there was absolutely no fraud in the 2020 presidential election there have been mountains of evidence proving the exact opposite.

    Of course there were outright fraudulent schemes like ballot harvesting, dead voters and the whole mail-in voting scam but there were other, more nuanced, approaches to rigging the election that are much harder to prove.

    In Wisconsin, Joe Biden narrowly “won” the state but according to retired Wisconsin state Supreme Court justice Michael Gableman, who has been appointed to review the state’s election integrity, there is “some evidence” that state officials did not follow the laws in place last November.

    This could end up being a pretty significant issue for state officials. Similar allegations have been made in several other key states that Biden narrowly “won” like Pennsylvania, Michigan and Georgia.

    Glenn Beck: Here’s how the 15k Haitians got to our border and WHO they are
    BlazeTV Staff
    2-3 minutes

    Todd Bensman, senior national security fellow at the Center for Immigration Studies, joined Glenn Beck on the radio program to share the new information he’s gathered after spending time with the thousands of Haitians who arrived at our southern border earlier this month.

    Bensman explained how the Haitian migrants got to Del Rio, Texas, where they actually came from, and why Democrats should stop pretending this group is in “dire straits” for a better life.

    “Most of the Haitians that are coming are not fleeing earthquakes in Haiti. And they’re not fleeing presidential assassination. Or even grinding poverty. They have been living in Chile and Brazil for many years … in relative prosperity. And with resident cards. And with permission to work in those countries,” Bensman said. “But they saw the Biden administration opening the border, bang, in January [and] February and they started to come en masse. And that is really what is behind this. These people are not asylum seekers, like a lot of Democrats are saying. Lawmakers on the progressive left [are] talking about, you know, we have to bring in these poor people who are in dire straits. They are not in dire straits at all. And I think people need to understand that, when they apply for asylum, they will be lying and committing mass asylum fraud, because they’re going to skip over the fact that they were living safely and securely in these other countries.”
