European Parliament condemns Hungary
Hungary is being condemned by the European Parliament because its people have decided "that we won’t become a country of immigrants", Prime Minister Viktor Orban said.

In a European parliamentary debate in Strasbourg on Tuesday, he said he rejected that the pro-migration forces threaten, blackmail and slander Hungary and the Hungarian people.
The EU report, authored by Green MEP Judith Sargentini, claimed that “there is a clear risk of a serious breach by Hungary of the values of the EU”, and called for launching the Article 7 procedure which suspends a member state’s rights.
Orban said all nations and EU member states had the right to determine their way of life in their own country.
“We protect our borders and we alone will decide whom we want to live together with. We’ve built a border fence and stopped hundreds of thousands of illegal migrants. We protected Hungary and we protected Europe,”Orban said.
Orban added that this was the first time in the EU’s history for a community to condemn its own border guards. He reminded his audience that he had been elected democratically.
“You want to pass moral judgement on and stigmatise a country and its people based on a quantitative majority,” Orban told the EP. In 2009, the Fidesz-Christian Democrat alliance captured 56 percent of the vote and in 2014 it won with 52 percent of the vote, as the EP’s most successful party.
“You shoulder a serious responsibility when wanting to exclude a nation from the European decision-making process. You would strip Hungary of its right to represent its interests in the European family to which it belongs,” he said.
In his annual State of the Union message, European Commission President Jean-Claude Juncker said that the EU needs to take in more migrants.
Manuela Carmena, the mayor of Madrid, agreed. She said that immigrants are “heroes” and make better workers than Spaniards, and she wanted to fill depopulated areas of the country with them.
Poland meanwhile said that it will veto any attempt by the EU to deprive Hungary of voting rights.
Italian MEP, Mario Borghezio, a member of Matteo Salvini’s Lega party, has expressed support for Hungary. He criticised the EC following the vote of MEPs, who were 448 to 197 in favour of invoking the Article 7 procedure against Hungary, in response to what it describes as “flouting EU rules”.
Another 48 MEPs abstained from the vote.
Nigel Farage, the Ukip MEP who leads the EFDD political group in the European Parliament, noted in response: “The authoritarian grip of the EU gets even tighter.”
ALDE, the political group led by Brexit coordinator Guy Verhofstadt, said it was “glad” the European Parliament voted against Hungary.

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.
