US State Department Will Pay Hungarian Media Outlets to Promote Mass Immigration in Hungary
The State Department has authorized $700,000 US taxpayer dollars to fund Hungarian media outlets that oppose Prime Minister Orbán’s conservative government, which is pushing back against the European Union’s policy of mass migration. He also is exposing the European politicians who Soros has called “reliable allies”. -GEG
The U.S. State Department has courted controversy by announcing it will plough $700,000 into Hungarian media, angering the country’s anti-globalist, conservative government.
The funding was announced by U.S. Chargé d‘Affaires David Kostelancik, who has previously appeared to openly criticise the Trump administration by alluding to “apparent inconsistencies in [U.S.] foreign policy” and remarking that “not every criticism of the government is ‘fake news’.”
Breitbart London spoke to a State Department official who confirmed it supports what it calls “democracy and human rights programming” in many countries, and that its intentions in Hungary — a NATO ally — are to “support media outlets operating outside the capital … to produce fact-based reporting and increase their audience and economic sustainability”.
The State Department also echoed Kostelancik’s claim that too many Hungarian news outlets are sympathetic to Prime Minister Viktor Orbán’s popular conservative government — which has earned powerful enemies by opposing the European Union on mass migration, building a highly effective border wall, and exposing the network of European politicians deemed “reliable allies” by billionaire open borders campaigner George Soros.
The obvious subtext to all of this is that the State Department funding effort is intended to bolster anti-government and opposition media. This suggests it is still pursuing Obama era, anti-conservative policy objectives internationally in defiance of President Trump, who has praised Prime Minister Orbán — the first European leader to back him — as “strong and brave”.

Rabbi Condemns Israel’s Treatment of Palestinian Children
Rabbi Laurie Zimmerman, who leads a congregation in Wisconsin, is exhorting her fellow Jews to support ending the violence against Palestinian minors by what she calls the “brutal Israeli occupation”. Each year, an estimated 700 Palestinian children aged 12 to 17 are arrested, interrogated, and detained by Israeli army, police, and security agents. In many cases, their treatment is brutal. Zimmerman supports proposed US legislation that would prohibit American taxpayer dollars from being used to support the military detention, interrogation, or abuse of Palestinian children that now is being carried out in violation of international law. -GEG
A mother and father panic as soldiers burst into their home, pull their teenage son out of bed, handcuff and blindfold him, and drive away with him, leaving them with no information about where he is going, what he is accused of, or when they will see him again. The soldiers interrogate him for hours with no access to a lawyer or parent present. His requests for food and water, or use of a toilet, are denied. Terrified, he is subjected to physical and verbal abuse and he is detained for weeks or more in pretrial detention. He has no knowledge of his rights, and he signs a confession written in a language he does not understand. He will do anything to return to his family.
It’s a parent’s worst nightmare. Yet this nightmare is a reality for hundreds of Palestinian parents whose children, sometimes as young as 12-years-old, are arrested and interrogated by Israeli soldiers in the occupied Palestinian territories.
My heart breaks when I read these stories. No parent — and no child — should have to endure this kind of trauma. I feel a particular responsibility to speak up not only as an American citizen whose tax dollars support the occupation’s infrastructure, but also as a rabbi who believes in the inherent dignity and worth of all human beings. As a leader within the American Jewish community, which pours extraordinary resources into Israel, we should be the first to stand up and condemn Israel’s unjust treatment of children, making sure that funding to Israel does not go to support for human rights abuses.
That is why I applaud Rep. Betty McCollum (D-MN) for introducing legislation on November 14 seeking to guarantee that the annual aid provided by the US government to Israel is not used for the detention of Palestinian children. The bill, Promoting Human Rights by Ending Israeli Military Detention of Palestinian Children Act, would prohibit taxpayer dollars from being used to support the military detention, interrogation, or abuse of Palestinian children carried out in violation of international law.
I have traveled to Palestinian villages in the West Bank several times, and spent a fair amount of time with Palestinian children and teenagers. I shudder when I think that they could be among the thousands of young Palestinians who have suffered from this systematic abuse. These children are like any children; they are learning to navigate their world, explore the consequences of their actions, and build relationships with their peers. They can be impulsive, absent-minded, and oblivious to others in one minute and empathetic, thoughtful, and full of laughter in the next.
They are also quite different from children who grow up in relative safety. They are forced to learn survival skills under the weight of the Israeli military occupation — skills my children will hopefully never have to learn. Skills like how to pass through a checkpoint to get to school, how to avoid settlers who taunt them, how to endure curfews that keep them cooped up for days. Skills like how to wake up, day after day, when they, or their loved ones, have been forcibly taken into military detention, tortured, and imprisoned.
Employees Fired from Essentia Health for Refusing the Flu Shot
Duluth, Minnesota: Essentia told employees, volunteers, students, and vendors that they have three options: get the flu shot, get a religious or medical exemption, or lose their jobs. Dr. Rajesh Prabhu, the company’s Chief of Patient Quality and Safety, says it is essential to take a mandatory approach in order to get high compliance. The nurses’ union will fight any terminations for a policy it says is unnecessary, intrusive, and may not even be effective. -GEG
For dozens of employees at Essentia Health, Monday meant coming to work not knowing whether they would make it to Tuesday. All because of the flu shot.
“Purely voluntary or more education doesn’t get you those high levels of immunization compliance,” said Dr. Rajesh Prabhu, the company’s chief of patient quality and safety. Prabhu said it was essential that he take a mandatory approach.
Since September, Essentia has told employees, volunteers, students and vendors that they have three options: get the flu shot, get an approved religious or medical exemption, or leave Essentia.
So far, he said 99.5 percent of employees have chosen the first two options. But 50 or so have been terminated, with more left waiting to hear back on their exemptions.
Minnesota Nurses Association Duluth Chair Steve Strand said with so many employees in that limbo, his union doesn’t know how many members have lost their jobs just yet.
Was 1960s ’Hippie Revolution’ a Deep-State Psy-Op to Neutralize the Anti-War Movement?
Los Angeles was the birthplace of the folk-rock and hippie movement that has many strange ’coincidences’ including an incredible number of early rock stars who came from military-intelligence families and families that were highly connected politically. Some of the musicians had little prior experience in music and appear to have been selected and groomed for their roles.
Author, Dave McGowan, theorizes that the hippie movement was a Psychological Operation by the deep state to create controlled opposition to itself and its global wars. It did this in the form of a movement that was so repulsive to most Americans that they would feel compelled to support the wars. [An analogy would be that the violent Left vs. Right clashes we see today are being allowed and even orchestrated by the deep state to cause Americans to recoil from the violence and support martial law as the solution.] -GEG
Dave McGowan, author of Weird Scenes Inside the Canyon: Laurel Canyon, Covert Ops & the Dark Heart of the Hippie Dream, exposes deep-state ties to iconic rock stars, actors, and even Charles Manson, in the tumultuous 1960s. Laurel Canyon, in Los Angeles, is the site of Lookout Mountain Laboratories, a once top-secret Air Force facility to protect Los Angeles from an aerial attack during World War 2. Later, it was re-purposed into a film studio. Lookout Mountain labs processed raw footage from nuclear bomb tests and more. Actors including Jimmy Stewart, John Wayne and Marilyn Monroe, and several heavyweight producers had clearance at the facility.
Many rock stars from that period came from career military families. Jim Morrison, who emerged as an anti-war icon, was the son of a Navy Admiral who oversaw the Gulf of Tonkin false-flag incident that launched the Vietnam war. Frank Zappa’s father was a chemical-warfare specialist. Other rock bands, singers, and songwriters with deep-state ties include the Byrds, the Doors, Buffalo Springfield, the Monkees, the Beach Boys, Steppenwolf, Love, the Turtles, the Mamas & the Papas, the Flying Burrito Brothers, the Eagles, America, Jackson Brown, Joni Mitchell, James Taylor, Linda Ronstadt, and Carol King.
An industry was built around these musicians with nightclubs, radio stations, and record labels all clamoring to help them before they became known. Vito Paulekas, who married into the Rockefeller family, was influential in shaping the hippie trend. He led a dance troupe, known as the Freaks, that went from club to club as patrons (admitted free) to draw crowds to the clubs where the unknown musicians were playing.
Young Hollywood stars on the rise like Jack Nicholson, Warren Beatty, Peter and Jane Fonda, Sharon Tate, Bruce Dern, and Dennis Hopper also were part of the Laurel Canyon scene, and most of them descended from military families also. Charles Manson had close relationships with Neil Young, the Beach Boys, and the Mamas & the Papas, and was accepted as a peer at the Laurel Canyon music scene. Sharon Tate’s father also was a military intelligence officer.
Dave McGowan concludes that the hippie movement was created to undermine the budding anti-war movement. Prior to the hippie phenomenon, there already existed an anti-war movement consisting of conservative, straight-laced, and educated college professors who were taken seriously, but soon they were replaced by school dropouts who became hooked on drugs and free love. It is significant that none of the Laurel Canyon rock stars, who were of the age to be drafted, were ever called into the service. If the hippies had been a threat to the establishment, the state easily could have taken them down. Many were openly involved in trafficking drugs, but none were ever punished for this crime.
