NOT FUNNY: German comedian calls for the “culling” of German and Austrian conservative politicians

German comedian and television host Jan Bohmermann has come under fire for allegedly advocating for the killing of conservative politicians in Austria and Germany.

Bohmermann, host of the late-night satirical comedy show “ZDF Magazin Royale,” recently targeted conservative politicians from the Austrian Freedom Party (FPO) and the German Alternative for Germany (AfD) party.

Bohmermann, who earns over €682,000 ($739,000) per year from the mandatory fee Germans pay to support public television programs, expressed outrage over the FPO’s surge in the polls and how the conservative party is the most popular party in Austria in the run-up to new elections to be held before the end of 2024.

In his show, Bohmermann equated both the AfD and the FPO with the Nazis and advocated for his viewers to take weapons to beat AfD and FPO politicians.

“Don’t always bring out the Nazi club, but maybe just club a few Nazis,” he said at the conclusion of his show.

Bohmermann’s choice of words is what has drawn concern here. His use of the German verb “keulen,” which refers to the culling of animals to prevent or contain disease, along with “Nazi-keulen,” strongly indicates that Bohmermann wants politicians from the AfD and FPO to be “culled” to avoid an “epidemic.” (Related: Top German official promotes law that would target bank accounts of “right-wing extremist” donors.)

Conservative politicians condemn Bohmermann’s call for violence

In response to Bohmermann’s call to violence, FPO Chairman Herbert Kickl wrote a statement calling Bohmermann’s comparing his party to animals that need to be culled “disgusting” and “absolute madness.”

Kickl also strongly criticized how Bohmermann compared him with Nazis, claiming that he is similar to dictator Adolf Hitler and “speaks like” Nazi propagandist Joseph Goebbels.

FPO Secretary General Christian Hafenecker also sharply criticized Bohmermann, noting that his statements have gone “beyond all previous dimensions” of acceptable satire and should not remain without consequences.

Hafenecker added that calls for physical violence against politicians “were previously only known from terrorist regimes.” He has called for Bohmermann to be investigated by German authorities.

“Where is the outcry from [Austrian] Federal President [Alexander Van der Bellen]? Where are the condemning statements from the OVP, Greens, SPO and NEOS, who always accused the FPO of hatred and incitement? Where is the Office for the Protection of the Constitution?” said Hafenecker in a statement calling out politicians with the liberal-conservative Austrian People’s Party, the Greens, the socialist Austrian Social Democratic Party and the liberal NEOS party, respectively.

Bohmermann has been warned repeatedly that his so-called “satire” could lead to actual acts of violence. Just one week before his show aired, an AfD politician was forced to withdraw from participating in German electoral politics due to receiving serious threats against his life and the lives of his family members. Numerous other AfD supporters have already been brutally assaulted, targeted at their homes and have had their vehicles set on fire.

Study reveals the power of COFFEE against COVID-19 infections – NaturalNews.com

Whoever thought a hot cup of joe could help address Wuhan coronavirus (COVID-19) infection? Indeed, two studies have shown the power of coffee against this pathogen.

The first study published in Cell & Bioscience last November found that drinking approximately one to two cups of coffee daily is enough to inhibit COVID-19 infections caused by different strains of SARS-CoV-2. In particular, it found that the consumption of coffee addressed infections caused by the original SARS-CoV-2 strain and its subsequent variants – the B117 alpha strain, the B16172 delta strain and the B11529 omicron strain.

The study authors from Taiwan examined coffee’s ability to fight off COVID-19 infection by purchasing three kinds of coffee – ground, instant and decaffeinated – from supermarkets. They discovered that all the coffee types they scrutinized possess the ability to inhibit viral infection in cells.

The study authors also found that adding milk or sugar does not impact coffee’s antiviral properties. Even decaffeinated coffee “still has the capability to interrupt SARS-CoV-2 infection, which is important to know for caffeine-sensitive populations.” Moreover, they mentioned in their paper that “the optimal timeline for coffee to inhibit SARS-CoV-2 infection is within six hours” after drinking. (Related: Adding milk to coffee can help fight inflammation, suggests study.)

According to the researchers, there are two ways coffee protects human cells against SARS-CoV-2 infection. First, compounds in coffee inhibit the spike protein’s ability to bind with human angiotensin-converting enzyme 2 (ACE2) in human cells. Second, they reduce the activity of transmembrane serine protease 2 (TMPRSS2) and cathepsin L (CTSL).

“Taken together, drinking one to two cups of coffee as well as decaffeinated coffee daily can potentially reduce SARS-CoV-2 infection – including wild-type, alpha, delta and omicron variants,” the researchers concluded.

Same antiviral properties also present in coffee leaves

Another study by the same research team from Taiwan focused on the ability of Coffea arabica leaves to address SARS-CoV-2 infection. Their earlier study published in July 2022 in the International Journal of Biological Sciences found that C. arabica leaves can inhibit the entry of the pathogen behind COVID-19 and its various strains into human cells.

This is because C. arabica leaf extracts have several phytochemicals that are also present in coffee beans. These include chlorogenic acid, caffeine, quinic acid and mangiferin. They inhibit infection by preventing the viral spike protein from binding with ACE2 receptors in human cells and reducing the activity of TMPRSS2.

During an appearance on the Taiwanese program “Health 1+1”, professor emeritus Jin-Jian Zhang of the National Taiwanese University‘s College of Medicine expounded on the benefits of coffee. The professor with years of research experience in coffee under his belt said daily coffee consumption can alleviate inflammation, enhance immunity, and reduce the risks of cardiovascular diseases and cancer.

According to Zhang, coffee’s association with longevity is linked to the various bioactive compounds present in it – the same compounds that contribute to its antiviral properties. These compounds such as chlorogenic acid, caffeic acid, trigonelline, cafestol and melanoidins form during the roasting process, and exhibit antioxidant properties to some extent.

The professor also pointed out that coffee can help address depression, citing two mechanisms. First, coffee can increase the population of beneficial bacteria in the gut – with higher populations of good bacteria contributing to improved sleep quality. Second, the aroma of coffee beans can trigger the release of feel-good hormones in the body – enhancing overall happiness in turn.

Zhang shared that he consumes coffee with added milk, mainly to mitigate its potential effects on the digestive system. However, newer research has found that coffee with added milk offers greater benefits as the cysteine in milk combines with coffee’s polyphenols, enhancing the drink’s anti-inflammatory activity.

However, the professor advised against adding non-dairy creamer or sugar to coffee. Non-dairy creamer mainly contains trans fats that aren’t good for the body, while sugar may contribute unnecessary calories.

UN experts call for investigation into Israeli human rights violations against Palestinian women and girls – NaturalNews.com

UN experts call for investigation into Israeli human rights violations against Palestinian women and girls

A group of experts with the Office of the United Nations High Commissioner for Human Rights (OHCHR) has called for an urgent investigation into “credible reports” of Israel committing grave human rights violations against women and children in the Gaza Strip and the occupied West Bank.

According to the reports, the Israel Defense Forces (IDF) allegedly subjected Palestinian women and girls who have been seeking refuge and fleeing conflict zones to arbitrary detention, extrajudicial killings, sexual assault and other degrading treatment.

In an official statement on Feb. 20, UN experts – including Reem Alsalem, special rapporteur on violence against women and girls, and Francesca Albanese, special rapporteur on the situation of human rights in the Palestinian territories occupied since 1967 – revealed the alleged arbitrary detention of hundreds of Palestinian women and girls, including human rights defenders, journalists and humanitarian workers, since Oct. 7.

“We are shocked by reports of the deliberate targeting and extrajudicial killing of Palestinian women and children in places where they sought refuge, or while fleeing. Some of them were reportedly holding white pieces of cloth when they were killed by the Israeli army or affiliated forces,” the experts said.

“We are particularly distressed by reports that Palestinian women and girls in detention have also been subjected to multiple forms of sexual assault, such as being stripped naked and searched by male Israeli army officers. At least two female Palestinian detainees were reportedly raped, while others were reportedly threatened with rape and sexual violence.”

Detainees have faced inhuman and degrading treatment, denial of basic necessities such as menstruation pads, food, and medicine, and severe beatings. Palestinian women and girls were also sexually assaulted and raped, while images of humiliation were uploaded online.

Moreover, the experts revealed disturbing reports that Palestinian women and children, including girls, have gone missing after contact with the IDF in Gaza.

“There are disturbing reports of at least one female infant forcibly transferred by the Israeli army into Israel and of children being separated from their parents, whose whereabouts remain unknown,” they said.

The UN experts called on the government of Israel to uphold the rights of Palestinian women and girls, urging it to cooperate with an independent, impartial, prompt, thorough and effective investigation into the allegations.

“We remind the Government of Israel of its obligation to uphold the right to life, safety, health, and dignity of Palestinian women and girls and to ensure that no one is subjected to violence, torture, ill-treatment or degrading treatment, including sexual violence. Taken together, these alleged acts may constitute grave violations of international human rights and humanitarian law, and amount to serious crimes under international criminal law that could be prosecuted under the Rome Statute. Those responsible for these apparent crimes must be held accountable and victims and their families are entitled to full redress and justice,” the group said.

IDF denies UN allegations of human rights violations

The IDF promptly denied the accusations in a statement, claiming that it is not possible to examine the accusations in depth “without precise details or proof of individual cases.”

Israel’s mission to the UN in Geneva likewise rejected the claims, labeling them “despicable and unfounded.” They pointed out that no complaints of abuse had been received but emphasized Israel’s readiness to investigate credible allegations with evidence.

Israel’s Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu’s office pointed to the official Israeli statement when asked to respond to the call for an independent investigation into the allegations.

Meanwhile, the Hamas militant group responded to the UN statement, claiming that it serves as evidence of Israel committing genocide in Gaza. The group insisted that these findings should be part of the case against Israel at the International Court of Justice (ICJ).

“The statement issued by a group of UN experts, which documented the blatant human rights violations to which Palestinian women and girls are specifically subjected in the Gaza Strip and the West Bank, is confirmation and additional evidence of the crime of genocide and ethnic cleansing committed by the occupation,” the group said on Telegram.

Thailand to RECRIMINALIZE recreational marijuana following spike in cannabis-related hospitalizations and criminal incidents – NaturalNews.com

Thailand to RECRIMINALIZE recreational marijuana following spike in cannabis-related hospitalizations and criminal incidents

Thailand is set to recriminalize recreational marijuana use just 18 months after the country decriminalized it.

The major reversal in government policy regarding cannabis consumption follows a spike in hospital admissions and a rise in crime linked to marijuana, as well as the perception that more and more Thai children are consuming the drug. This comes 18 months after becoming the first country in Asia to decriminalize the consumption of marijuana.

The previously relaxed laws saw Thailand create a lucrative cannabis industry in less than two years. This industry catered both to locals and tourists alike and created a small cannabis boom within the Southeast Asian nation.

But the new conservative coalition government of Thailand, which came to power late last year and promised to tighten rules, has followed through on its campaign pledge and is now restricting cannabis use to medical purposes only. (Related: Study links legalization, commercialization of cannabis to increased road accidents).

A draft bill released recently by Thailand’s Ministry of Public Health has outlined penalties for offenders, from hefty fines to imprisonment for up to one year.

Cannabis and cannabis-related products will be limited to medical and health purposes only, the bill states, echoing Prime Minister Srettha Thavisin’s pledge that his new government will “rectify” laws on cannabis upon taking office.

Under the relaxed laws, smoking marijuana in public remained illegal. The proposed new laws will not only retain this but will go further by banning all advertising and marketing campaigns for cannabis buds and extracts and other cannabis products.

Thavisin has been vocal about banning recreational cannabis and stated in several media interviews that drug abuse is “a big problem for Thailand.”

“We drafted this law to prohibit the wrong usage of cannabis,” said Public Health Minister Cholnan Srikaew. “All recreational usage is wrong.”

Marijuana was dropped as a controlled substance in 2022

Thailand dropped marijuana’s classification as a controlled substance in June 2022. Since then, hospitalizations for cannabis-induced psychological problems have doubled. Now, over 63,000 people go to the hospital for cannabis-related medical problems each year. Furthermore reports of violence, abuse and other criminality linked to cannabis have also risen.

Thailand became the first country in Asia to legalize recreational marijuana in 2019, when the previous government promised doing so would be a boon to crop farmers in northern Thailand.

While there have been some limited economic benefits, legalization has given rise to a large unregulated black market. Data shows that more than 6,000 cannabis dispensaries have sprouted in the country, many working without government licenses.

There has also been a boom in tourists visiting the country to use marijuana recreationally, helping to fund cannabis-themed cafes and hemp spas.

The new bill will be putting an end to all this and will impose a minimum fine of 60,000 Thai baht ($1,673) for using cannabis “for entertainment or pleasure.”

This is on top of the ban on public marijuana use, which carries a fine of 25,000 baht ($700).

The new restrictions also toughens punishment for people who farm cannabis without a license, ranging from jail terms of one to three years on top of fines of 20,000 to 30,000 baht ($560 to $840).

Biden’s post-pandemic “job recovery” driven almost entirely by MIGRANT LABOR, study finds – NaturalNews.com

Biden’s post-pandemic “job recovery” driven almost entirely by MIGRANT LABOR, study finds

A study from the Center for Immigration Studies (CIS) has found that the “job recovery” following the Wuhan coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic touted by President Joe Biden is driven almost entirely by migrant labor.

The Feb. 13 study noted that the entry of foreign-born workers into the U.S. labor force is responsible for Biden’s “job recovery.” It pointed out that the 2.7 million “additional” individuals joining the workforce in the fourth quarter (Q4) of 2023 was only made possible due to an increase in 2.9 million immigrant jobs – both legal and illegal – and a reduction of 183,000 native-born American jobs.

It also mentioned that the 77 percent overall labor force participation rate of all U.S.-born adults aged between 18 to 64 in Q4 2023 matches the 2019 pre-pandemic participation rate. However, this is still markedly lower than the prior peaks of 78.1 percent in 2006 and 79.2 percent in 2000.

According to the paper, the number of U.S.-born workers entering the labor market has yet to return to pre-pandemic levels since the economic recovery began in late 2020. Despite the sluggish job recovery among native workers, the U.S. experienced a hot job market mainly driven by a flood of cheap, foreign labor, the CIS study shows. Immigrant labor recovery has far outpaced native-born recovery when comparing fourth-quarter numbers at the end of each year since 2020. (Related: Job APOCALYPSE continues: Layoffs announced at Walmart’s drone delivery partner.)

The National Pulse previously said the influx of immigrants both legal and illegal has likely had a “cooling” effect on inflation by depressing wages across the country. The downward wage pressure creates a degree of “demand destruction” – and declining demand should correlate to falling prices.

Depressed wages also contribute to lower quality of life

While cheap migrant labor lowers inflation numbers, it also depresses the wages of American workers. Inflation ticked up slightly in December, but the overall trend has shown prices falling for the most part as the demand for labor is easing and wages drop.

“Competing with cheap, immigrant labor can be difficult for native-born Americans regardless of whether the job is blue-collar or white-collar,” the Pulse pointed out. “A look at salaries for H1B visa holders working in technology versus the industry average shows a significant difference in compensation, with the gap sometimes being ten thousand dollars or more.”

Meanwhile, Yahoo Finance said the number of foreign-born workers in December 2023 were almost 10 percent higher than before the pandemic. It added that 20 percent of the U.S. labor force in December 2020 was comprised of immigrant workers. According to the outlet, the increase in foreign-born workers has also driven down the wages of American workers – and arguably decreased their quality of life.

The influx of immigrants also means an increase in consumers. This translates to an increase in demand for products and, in turn, higher prices. While finance industry experts cited by Yahoo Finance fail to mention this problem, they also lament the potential negative economic impact of non-productive immigrants “such as elderly relatives, stay-at-home mothers, and students.”

Moreover, this influx of immigrant labor has also likely fueled negative perceptions about the economy for groups of native-born Americans being displaced in the job market. CNN commentator and former Obama administration advisor Van Jones blasted Biden for this. He claimed that the incumbent president, who espouses an “open borders policy,” has only made “crappy” jobs available to the Black community.

12 Jeffrey Epstein victims file lawsuit against FBI over its failure to investigate complaints lodged against the pedophile as early as 1996 – NaturalNews.com

12 Jeffrey Epstein victims file lawsuit against FBI over its failure to investigate complaints lodged against the pedophile as early as 1996

A group of 12 victims of the late pedophile financier Jeffrey Epstein has filed a lawsuit against the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI), accusing the agency of inadequately investigating the notorious sex offender.

The plaintiffs claim that over two decades, the FBI failed to act on reports about Epstein’s activities, resulting in the victims being subjected to trafficking, abuse, rape, torture and threats. (Related: PEDO BLACKMAIL: Biden regime HIDING EVIDENCE implicating Jeffrey Epstein, intelligence agencies in CHILD ABUSE activities.)

The lawsuit, filed in a federal court in New York by 12 women identified as anonymous Jane Does, alleges that the FBI allowed Epstein to sex traffic and sexually abuse children and young women by neglecting its responsibilities. The complaint seeks to unravel the FBI’s role in Epstein’s criminal sex trafficking ring.

This lawsuit comes following the unearthing of evidence strongly indicating that Epstein’s pedophilia and sex trafficking crimes were being conducted decades before his final incarceration and supposed suicide.

“For over two decades, the [FBI] permitted Jeffrey Epstein to sex traffic and sexually abuse scores of children and young women by failing to do the job the American people expected of it,” the complaint alleges. “As a result of the continued failures of the FBI, Jane Does 1-12 bring the lawsuit to get to the bottom – once and for all – of the FBI’s role in Epstein’s criminal sex trafficking ring.”

FBI ignored Epstein victims who spoke out for decades

According to the lawsuit, the FBI received tips, reports and complaints about Epstein’s alleged trafficking and abuse of minors starting in 1996 but did not initiate a case or share the information with other law enforcement agencies until 2006.

This was two years before Epstein pleaded guilty to a child prostitution charge in Florida under a controversial plea deal, which saw him register as a sex offender and serve 13 months on supervised release.

Despite Epstein’s conviction and the multitude of other sex trafficking charges he evaded, the FBI allegedly continued to disregard tips over the next decade. The lawsuit claims that the FBI’s negligence directly contributed to the ongoing sex trafficking, abuse, rape, torture and threats against the plaintiffs.

Epstein was arrested in 2019 on charges of trafficking dozens of minors and died in a Manhattan jail cell awaiting trial, officially ruled as suicide. His associate, Ghislaine Maxwell, was sentenced to 20 years in prison for child sex trafficking in 2022.

Testimonies from victims revealed that Epstein and Maxwell recruited girls to perform sexual acts on themselves and associates, instructing them to recruit additional victims. Among those accused of abusing the girls was Britain’s Prince Andrew, who settled out of court with an accuser in 2022.

The plaintiffs in the lawsuit seek unspecified compensation and damages from the U.S. government. The FBI has faced accusations of negligence in handling the Epstein case, prompting an internal investigation promised by agency Director Christopher Wray during a Senate Judiciary Committee hearing last December.
