On June 2, a violent brawl broke out between thousands of migrants on an Italian beach in Peschiera del Garda. A party organized by migrants from all across Lombardi via social media ended in fights, robberies, vandalism, stabbings, and police intervening with full riot gear.

The mayors of Peschiera and Castelnuovo had already put the prefecture and law enforcement on notice. But only in the late afternoon, when the party had degenerated into a violent brawl with pipes, bottles, and knives, did police the intervention drive the migrants back towards the train station they arrived from. It is a custom that has been in vogue for some years now: every summer weekend, groups of hundreds of migrant children or, as the media calls them, “new Italians,” gather to terrorize families on a trip to the Lake. But they had never been as many as this year. There were about two thousand – explains the mayor of Peschiera, Orietta Gaiulli. Almost all of them come from the Lombardy region. Once they got off at the Peschiera train station, “They bought large quantities of alcohol and headed to the meeting place, the free beach,” stated Gaiulli. “The first year there were 200, the year after that 500 and yesterday 2,000 thousand”. The warning signs that something big was boiling were all there.

They’re Trying to Shut Us Down
Over the last several months, I’ve lost count of how many times the powers-that-be have tried to shut us down. They’ve sent hackers at us, forcing us to take extreme measures on web security. They sent attorneys after us, but thankfully we’re not easily intimidated by baseless accusations or threats. They’ve even gone so far as to make physical threats. Those can actually be a bit worrisome but Remington has me covered.
For us to continue to deliver the truth that Americans need to read and hear, we ask you, our amazing audience, for financial assistance. We have a Giving Fuel page to help us pay the bills. It’s brand new so don’t be discouraged by the lack of donations there. It’s a funny reality that the fewer the donations that have been made, the less likely people are willing to donate to it. One would think this is counterintuitive, but sometimes people are skeptical because they think that perhaps there’s a reason others haven’t been donating. In our situation, we’re just getting started so please don’t be shy if you have the means to help.
Thank you and God bless!
