French military reserve refuses Marion Maréchal-Le Pen
Marion Maréchal-Le Pen, who had asked in July - after the assassination by jihadists of Father Hamel in a church - to be incorporated into the military reserve, has just been denied entry on the grounds that a legal provision precludes the recruitment of a parliamentarian.

Maréchal-Le Pen had called all the “young patriots” to do the same, just as president François Hollande had requested after the jihadist attack on Nice.
The reason for excluding the young blonde Front National deputy of Vaucluse sound officious enough, but unfortunately, it is false. There is no such provision.
Charlotte d’Ornellas on Boulevard Voltaire reports that the Military Zone site, opex 360 – usually well-informed on such matters – said the exact opposite in July, maintaining that a number of MPs are currently part of the operational reserve.
The Electoral Code is quite clear on the matter: Article L.46 (2) of the Electoral Code states that “the reservist of the national gendarmerie can exercise this activity [of being a parlementarian] within his constituency”.
In September last year, Le Dauphiné Libéré reported that the young MP had filed her application with the recruitment center of the army in Avignon, and was called the following Monday to complete the aptitude tests.
But last Friday, Marion Maréchal-Le Pen received an e-mail from the head of the recruitment and selection group Sud-Est: “Madam, the Army thanks you for your application and commitment to to serve. However, I regret to inform you that a legal buycialisquality.com provision prevents the recruitment of a parliamentarian into the operational reserve. You will be notified by mail shortly. Under these circumstances, we can not act on your application and the terms of your convocation on Monday, February 6, are therefore obsolete.”
The army will have to explain its refusal in more detail soon. The decision is particularly shocking, coming on the same day as a French soldier was assaulted by a jihadist in Paris at the Louvre.
An insider at the French Ministry of Defense, commented on why the decision took so long: “They had to ask the legal department to dig to find a reason get rid of her and therefore needed time!”
As leftist daily Libération noted at the time: “Marion Maréchal-Le Pen, if she joins the military reserve as she wishes, would not be the first member of Parliament to do so. She would join the ranks of Nicolas Bays, Socialist deputy and commander of the operational reserve in the Army, and Loïc Hervé, senator of Haute-Savoie, member of the reserve of the French Navy.”
A young French citizen has just been deprived of an opportunity to serve her country because she is a nationalist.

CLIMATEThe United States' government scientific organization, the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA), predicts zero sunspots from 2031 to 2040. This is an extreme situation that has not occurred in as long as humanity has been counting sunspots, and it leads us into uncharted territory in terms of our solar system. However, this prediction aligns with the warnings of the world-renowned solar researcher Valentina Zharkova for many years, who indicated in 2019 various signs of this catastrophic phenomenon, including the extreme hailstorms we have seen in Europe and the world this summer. The forecast and various observations this year give cause for very significant concern. In this unique analysis, Free West Media explains why.
EUROPEAN ELECTIONSOn Saturday, August 26, representatives of six European nationalist parties gathered in Budapest. The meeting was initiated by the Hungarian party Mi Hazánk and took place in the national parliament. Representatives of the parties signed a joint declaration that not only reaffirms the parties' friendship but also their unity on a range of complex political issues. A surprisingly clear and radical manifesto was established. The hope is that this cooperation will lead to success in the EU elections and eventually result in the formation of a group in the European Parliament. For Swedish nationalism, this meeting marks a success as Sweden, for the first time, has a party represented in a leading nationalist cooperation in Europe. Free West Media was present at this historic event.
Sweden will have to wait a bit longer for NATO membership, according to Turkey's Justice Minister Jilmaz Tunc. First, Sweden must extradite the "terrorists" Turkey wants and stop the desecration of the Quran.
The Russian attack helicopter Ka-52 is considered one of the world's best and has struck fear in Ukraine, where it has hunted down tanks and other armored vehicles, often beyond the range of many light anti-aircraft systems. However, it has met its match in the Swedish air defense missile system RBS 70, which has quickly led to significant losses for the Russian helicopter forces.
Alternative for Germany (AfD) held a party conference on July 29-30 to select candidates for the upcoming EU election next year. EU Parliament member Maximilian Krah, belonging to the party's more radical, ethnonationalist faction, was appointed as the top candidate. The party's two spokespersons delivered powerful speeches criticizing the EU's failed migration policy and trade sanctions that isolate Europe and Germany from the rest of the world. They argued that it's time for the EU to return a significant portion of its power to national parliaments. However, they have dropped the demand for Germany to exit the EU.
The rising popularity of AfD has raised strong concerns within the establishment. Despite lies and demonization in the media and isolation from the overall political establishment, the party continues to grow. Certain representatives of the party are accused of becoming increasingly "extreme," and in an unusual move, the influential weekly newspaper Der Spiegel demanded that AfD be "banned."

After a criminal complaint in Belgium against the President of the European Commission, the so-called SMS-case, now takes a new turn.

Arktos has distinguished itself by publishing groundbreaking philosophers and social critics. Now, the publisher's international distributor has abruptly terminated the cooperation, and more than 400 already printed titles cannot reach their audience. There is strong evidence that the distributor has been under pressure, something that has also happened in Sweden. We have spoken with Arktos founder Daniel Friberg about the ongoing struggle for freedom of speech in a shrinking cultural corridor.
