  • Swiss antisemitism shock at Davos shop sign saying no skis for Jews

    Swiss police have opened an investigation into a ski hire shop's announcement it would no longer rent skis and sledges to Jewish customers. The shop, in the famous resort of Davos, has now reversed its decision. It has taken down the signs, translated into Hebrew, which informed customers of the ban. But many have argued the case is a clear violation of Switzerland's laws against discrimination and incitement to racial or religious hatred. The Swiss Federation of Jewish Communities has launched its own legal action, condemning the signs as clearly discriminatory. Posters in the sports shop window informed customers that,...

    An Open Letter to the Davos CrowdDear self-styled “global elites:”No doubt, should this missive ever come to your attention, you will simply dismiss me as a “conspiracy theorist.” But no theorizing is necessary when the conspirators keep admitting to it, repeatedly speaking the quiet part out loud.Your creepy Bond-villain in chief, Klaus Schwab, Chairman of the World Economic Forum, has openly called for “permanent interaction between governments and regulatory agencies on the one hand, and business on the other”—in other words, for a kind of global fascism 2.0. Meanwhile, Schwab’s oily henchman, Yuval Harari, asserts that “human rights exist only...

    May the WEF Plot Suffer the People’s ResistanceThe World Economic Forum had its annual conference last week in Davos, Switzerland. Once again, the Davos crowd ran a demolition derby for the destruction of liberty around the globe.The WEF seized the Covid pandemic to champion a “Great Reset” to radically increase the power of politicians over every aspect of modern life. In June 2020, the WEF announced that “the world must act jointly and swiftly to revamp all aspects of our societies and economies, from education to social contracts and working conditions. Every country, from the United States to China, must...

    Joel Kotkin reports from Davos that things are not well with Klaus Schwab’s World Economic Forum. Says he: The growing irrelevance of what Adrian Wooldridge has labelled “the progressive aristocracy” can even be seen in the less than enthusiastic press coverage. Politico describes the contemporary Davos crowd as a “smart set” which “sounds dumb.” Then he sticks in the shiv: The grandees don’t have to travel far to see the results of their “reset” as nearby Germany’s industrial machine collapses, with even its last solar panel plant about to go belly-up. But then there was Javier Milei’s rousing speech in...

    In a year marked by dwindling public trust in key institutions and heralded by the theme “Rebuilding Trust” at the World Economic Forum’s annual Davos assembly, Emma Tucker, the Wall Street Journal’s Editor in Chief, has called for a reevaluation of how traditional media operates. Recalling a point when the mainstream press was the chief adjudicator of information and facts, she highlighted its demise that came with the rise of alternative media platforms. Tucker, during a Davos panel supposedly dedicated to the preservation of truth, offered a lament for the era when the press held exclusive dominance over news and...

    It is Davos (World Economic Forum) week and the MSM hysterical propaganda push from the globalists regarding “Disease X” is in full swing. Just take a gander at a few of the Corporate Mockingbird Media headlines today. (IMAGES) Almost every major news outlet in the world has run black propaganda pieces about Disease X. Why do I write black propaganda – because the “experts” aren’t actually named, the peer-reviewed papers supporting the thesis of “a deadly pathogen causing 20 times more deaths than COVID-19” or “killing 20 times more people than COVID-19” or “killing 50 million people” are non-existent.

    On Thursday, a panelist at the World Economic Forum's Davos conference suggested creating "exclusion lists" to demonetize sources sharing so-called "disinformation," the Daily Caller News Foundation reported. Jeanne Bourgault, the president and CEO of Internews, an international nonprofit that provides "support" to independent media outlets in more than 100 countries, addressed how to prevent the spread of what she considers inaccurate information during a Davos conference panel titled "Defending Truth." "Global trust in institutions is eroding, reflected in how 40% of people consistently trust news. Empowering internet users with media information literacy, advancing information integrity and enhancing transparency are vital...

    The introduction of biometric digital identity cards could be used by governments to track “who actually got a vaccination or not,” Queen Máxima of the Netherlands said at the annual World Economic Forum meeting in Davos this week. Queen Máxima, a longtime social justice campaigner who has served as the United Nations Secretary-General’s Special Advocate for Inclusive Finance for Development (UNSGSA) since 2009, urged for the wider adoption of biometric digital ID cards globally during a WEF panel discussion titled “Comparing Notes on Financial Inclusion” on Thursday. “When I started this job, there were actually very little countries in Africa...

    People with a liking for white furniture. Children in designer wear. Social media hotel-gym reviewers called things like Brianna. People who eat at Nobu on a non-ironic basis. Paulo Coelho readers. There is a prejudice about the crowd that Dubai attracts. I won’t pretend, during a trip here this week, not to have seen them at all. But the visit has been a better education in global affairs than was available in Davos over the same time. A landlocked town in a landlocked nation is a damn fool place to host the World Economic Forum. As the Houthis are giving...

    President Javier Milei of Argentina took the World Economic Forum by storm with a provocative keynote speech on Wednesday. The libertarian leader delivered a blistering critique of socialism and a fervent endorsement of capitalist principles before a crowd of the world’s most influential political and economic figures. Milei, having been introduced by Klaus Schwab himself, then proceeded to confront the elites with his fiery speech. The 53-year-old president did not hold back in his rebuke of the West’s slide toward collectivism — a political theory associated with communism. “I am here today to tell you that the West is in...

    The climate change agenda can only be fully if international carbon taxes are implemented on the global population, Saudi Arabian Finance Minister Mohammed Al-Jadaan proclaimed at the World Economic Forum meeting this week. During a panel discussion on the “Global Economic Outlook” on Friday during the annual WEF meeting in the Swiss ski resort town of Davos, Al-Jadaan argued that in order to solve the supposed climate crisis, a global carbon tax will be required.

    The keynote speaker of the World Economic Forum’s 2024 annual conference in Davos was Ursula von der Leyen, European Commission President. She stated the top global risk for the EU is disinformation and misinformation, declaring disinformation destroys trust and limits the ability to “tackle the big global challenges.” In plain English, trust can only be restored by censoring inconvenient facts and evidence. Below is a short clip (1:39) highlighting her disinformation sermon. The top risk in the WEF’s 2024 Global Risk Report is disinformation. If not controlled, societies will be polarized, elections will be disrupted, and there will be mistrust...

    Who would have guessed freedom of speech would become the biggest barrier to saving humanity? Luckily, a fix is pending from the billionaires, political poohbahs and other weasels attending this week’s World Economic Forum in Davos, Switzerland. WEF has two big goals this year: “rebuild trust” and “crush dissent.” OK, that last one is a paraphrase. Instead, WEF is proclaiming the greatest peril humanity faces is “misinformation and disinformation.” And how can we recognize “misinformation”? Easy: It denies that Davos cronies should rule the world. OK, that’s another paraphrase.

    A group of House Republicans, led by Pennsylvania Rep. Scott Perry, introduced legislation Thursday to defund the World Economic Forum (WEF). The Daily Caller first obtained a copy of the bill, which is titled the Defund Davos Act. The legislation would specifically block the State Department, USAID, and any other federal agency from providing funding to the (WEF). The U.S. has spent millions on the WEF over the years, something Perry and other GOP lawmakers say needs to end. “Forcing American Taxpayers to fund annual ski trips for insular, global elitists is absurd – not to mention reprehensible,” Perry told...

    A wise old friend once said to me that if Christianity died out, what would come next would not be atheism but polytheism. That is, instead of worshipping one God, people would start worshipping a whole range of gods. I thought of that yesterday while watching a Brazilian shaman called Putanny Yawanawa performing a native spiritual ceremony onstage at the World Economic Forum in Davos. The leaders onstage all managed to keep a straight face — in fact, they looked deeply humbled and impressed — as Yawanawa did her incantations and blew her sacred breath into their faces. All behaved...

Because as WEF Stooge Boy Yuval Noah Harari admitted, the election of Trump this year means the "deathblow" to their planned global economic order which is actually comes out as an election endorsement. Oh, and KUDOS to Rebel News of Canada for having an INDEPENDENT media on the scene in Davos covering this event and actually asking challenging questions of the attendees in stark contrast to controlled media such as CNN and BBC which...

(snip) The moderator, British international affairs expert Sir Robin Niblett, at one point asked Roberts about former President Trump's promise of "retribution" if he regains office, and that the World Economic Forum's purported defenses of liberal democracy could be "swept under the rug" by the mogul.

    It's that time of year again: Our betters are in Davos, Switzerland, at the World Economic Forum annual meeting, devising ways to tell us what to drive, eat, and cook with. All manner of bigwigs are in attendance, including our own Secretary of State, Antony Blinken. Unfortunately, Blinken's plans to return to the U.S. hit some turbulence: It seems the Boeing 737 he was set to take back to the homeland has sprung a leak. I'm not sure exactly what that's a metaphor for, but surely, it's something. US Secretary of State Antony Blinken was unable to fly home from...
