Numbers of non-deported migrants in Germany keep rising
The number of foreigners in Germany listed for deportation has increased to over 240 000. As of March 31 this year, 241 932 unwanted persons were registered in the Central Register of Foreigners, according to a response by the Federal Government to a request of the AFD-deputy Lars Herrmann.

Since joining the Bundestag in autumn 2017, the AfD has requested this figure every quarter. Accordingly, the increase in the last quarter of 6 000 people was the strongest since the beginning of the query. The number has risen steadily since the end of December 2017 (228 859).
Of the 241 932 foreigners obliged to leave the country, some 166 464 either lacked papers, had an unexplained identity or had health reasons.
Most of the exiles come from Afghanistan (19 117) and Iraq (16 944). “The burden on our welfare state and social peace is getting heavier. These people should actually have been deported according to current legislation long ago,” Herrmann told the Berlin weekly Junge Freiheit.
Instead, the AfD member of the Interior Committee fears that they would remain in Germany due to the recently passed bill known as the Fachkräftezuwanderungsgesetz of the Federal Government. “Breach of law is first made acceptable and then subsequently legalized,” the police chief commented.
Germany spent a record 23 billion euros last year on helping to “integrate” more than one million asylum seekers and fighting the root causes of migration abroad, Reuters reported. That marks an increase of nearly 11 percent on the 20,8 billion euros that Germany spent in the previous year, a document prepared by the Finance Ministry showed.
Chancellor Merkel has repeatedly defended her 2015 decision to open German borders to hundreds of thousands of migrants, mainly from Muslim countries, as a “humanitarian necessity”, but has since vowed to prevent a repeat of such mass migration by tackling its causes.
The government spent a total of 7,9 billion euros in 2018 on measures aimed at keeping migrants outside the European Union and improving living conditions in their home countries – a 16 percent increase compared with 2017.
Germany’s 16 federal states, which are mainly in charge of funding housing and integrating the arrivals from countries such as Syria, Iraq and Afghanistan, received 7,5 billion euros from the government last year, according to the report. This marked an increase of 14 percent.
Alice Weidel, parliamentary leader of the Alternative for Germany (AfD), criticised Merkel’s government for spending billions on migrants. “This is a costly welcome party at the expense of citizens.”
But Annette Widmann-Mauz, Minister of State for Migration, Refugees and Integration, called Weidel’s comments “stupid” and in bad taste. “Whoever dismisses humanitarian protection as a party has understood nothing at all,” she added.
In a new European survey, 41 percent of Germans say they would welcome more asylum seekers despite being the largest recipient of migrants during the height of the migrant crisis, while more than half of Swedes say they do not want to see the country take in more migrants, making it one of the most migration-sceptic nations.
Some 8 000 people in Germany, Poland, Spain, Hungary, Italy, Belgium, France and Sweden were asked a series of questions in the survey by YouGov, including:
“Do you agree with the statement: ‘My country should not receive more refugees from conflict areas.’?” to which 51 percent of the Swedish respondents said yes, Spanish newspaper El Pais reported.
While both Poland and Italy were tied with 53 percent, Swedes were more negative about the prospect than even Hungarians, at 49 percent.
More than one-third, 35 percent of the respondents across all of the countries surveyed, said that immigration was the most important issue facing the European Union today but only 14 percent said that the European Union had handled the migrant crisis in 2015 and 2016 well.

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.
Top Researchers Push Back Against Climate Lies."The correlation is as clear as day," explained the Israeli astrophysicist Nir Shaviv, who was hailed by the establishment, before his interview with Forbes was hastily deleted. What he says contradicts the climate narrative, which points to humans as responsible for Earth's climate. Shaviv firmly asserts that it is the sun that controls the climate, something that can be scientifically proven in many ways. Contrary to the popular belief, the sun's influence on Earth has, in recent years, caused unusually cold and rainy weather, a trend that solar researchers warn will worsen significantly in the coming decades. The sun has exhibited an unusually low activity since 2016, during Solar Cycle 24, which was the weakest in a century.
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. The judge responsible for the investigation will likely gain access to the secret messages exchanged between Ursula von der Leyen and Albert Bourla, CEO of Pfizer, at least if they haven't been deleted.
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.
