Austria: Prosecutors indicted 10 leaders of the anti-immigration Generation Identity activist group, and seven sympathizers, who are being charged with incitement to hatred, forming a criminal organization, property damage and harassment. Generation Identity’s media stunts have been entirely peaceful. Martin Sellner, leader of Generation Identity, was deported from the UK in March with his American girlfriend, Brittany Pettibone, for attempting to give a speech. Austrian law is based on precedent, and Sellner says that the Generation Identity case is being used to set a precedent for ‘criminal association’, which is a way to criminalize being a member of any organization the government does not like. He says the law will be used to intimidate and prosecute members and supporters of the populist Austrian Freedom Party that recently gained power in the latest election.
Austrian prosecutors announced criminal charges Monday against 17 members of the far-right “Identitarian Movement” (IBÖ) connected to several of the group’s activities in recent years.
The state prosecutor in the city of Graz said 10 prominent members of the group and seven other “active sympathisers” were being charged with various counts of hate speech, criminal association, damage to property and coercion.
The charges follow raids last month at the houses of several members of the group, including one of its leaders Martin Sellner.
The group has staged several stunts in recent years to publicise what prosectors called its “xenophobic ideology”.
One such event cited by prosecutors was an incident in March 2017 where members gained access to the roof of the Turkish embassy and hung a banner from it bearing the slogan: “Erdogan, take your Turks back home”.
Another example from June 2016 is mentioned in which members stormed the stage during a talk on refugee policy at Klagenfurt University and unrolled banners reading “Stop Immigration” and “Integration is a lie”.
Nancy Pelosi, who has refused to fund the US-Mexico border wall, refused to meet with the Angel Moms as her staff said she was not there. However, Pelosi was reported to be hiding behind the wall in her office as someone who had an appointment was escorted into her office.
Some critics have argued that the definitions of cyberbullying are not as clear cut as they may sound and that clever attorneys could interpret them in such a way as to violate the First Amendment or to imprison someone for merely hurting others’ feelings.
Stacey Abrams expects Democrats to “surge” and “reclaim power”. A demographic shift is happening all over Georgia and, in most counties, white populations soon will become the minority. Abrams also says she would not oppose allowing illegal aliens to vote in local elections.
The Trafficking Victims Protection Reauthorization Act and a Clinton-era court settlement, called the Flores agreement, requires that children traveling without parents must be quickly released to social workers who administer benefits.
The FBI secretly began an investigation in 2017 into whether President Trump is a Russian agent who committed treason. No evidence was found, but the investigation and rumors of the instigation were widely used by the media to mar the President’s image.
An activist group stepped over the wall surrounding Nancy Pelosi’s California mansion and demanded access to her home. A small group of Guatemalans put up a tent with the word ‘immorality’ printed on it and attached photos of people who have been murdered by illegal aliens.
Last week, KUSI, a local San Diego television station, said that CNN asked them to provide a “local view” of the existing wall at the US-Mexico border, only to cancel when CNN learned that past reports from the station showed that the wall is effective.
Ron Paul says that Congressmen must sell their souls to have influence in government. He explains that if he had wanted to be the chairman of the Banking Committee, for example, he would be expected to raise $5 to $10 million for the party.
New migration from a DACA amnesty would allow the entry of 9 million foreign nationals, because every two newly naturalized citizens bring about seven foreign relatives with them. If this were to happen, a border wall could not stop the invasion. No wonder the public was outraged.

Cottbus, a small university center with just over 100,000 residents, has taken in around 3,000 asylum seekers since German Chancellor Angela Merkel opened the country to refugees in 2015. Several incidents of violence and a growing sentiment against immigration has led to the ban. Cottbus joins the towns of Salzgitter, Delmenhorst, and Wilhelmshaven in prohibiting new migrants.
President Trump blamed Obama’s weak immigration laws at the border, known as “catch and release,” which, instead of deporting illegal aliens, allowed them to be released into the US while they await a court hearing. Trump says that the border will be guarded by the US military until the wall is built. He threatened Mexico with pulling out of NAFTA [which he should do anyway], and Mexico says it will support him. Tucker Carlson says this promise cannot be trusted.
Judge Napolitano says that the Supreme Court that validated President Trump’s travel ban that affects people from Iran, Libya, North Korea, Somalia, Syria, Venezuela, and Yemen. Chad was dropped from the list in April. He said that this reaffirms Trump’s absolute right to exclude people or groups from certain areas from immigrating to the US. The case will be referred back to Hawaii, as they accused Trump of discrimination against Muslims, while he was a candidate, but they will not be allowed to use Trump’s words before the election.
