German churches celebrate migrant crisis as a success
The two large churches in Germany have drawn a positive interim assessment of the 2015 wave of migrants. Around half of those who came at the time are being trained or have jobs today, said the Council President of the Evangelical Church in Germany, Heinrich Bedford-Strohm.

But the clergyman did not mention that integration courses have been ineffective. Less than half of all migrants that completed one of the courses were able to pass even a basic language test in 2018.
The Catholic Cardinal Reinhard Marx from Munich told the Catholic news agency KNA in Munich: “The fears, accompanied by some undertones, that this would increase the crime rate in Germany have not been proven true. Our community is not threatened by migrants, but by the right wing.”
The two clergymen also praised Chancellor Angela Merkel. Her message “We can do it” was “absolutely right,” said Marx. But Merkel herself said that the crisis of 2015 “must not be repeated”.
Germans today have the lowest private wealth in the euro zone, the highest taxes in the world, record electricity prices and the lowest home ownership rate.
Bedford-Strohm also reported to the KNA he had “never received so much positive news” as after the EKD’s decision to launch its own migrant rescue ship. The Sea Watch 4 is scheduled to set sail in early August to bring more illegal Africans to the EU.
Vice president of the Bundestag, Claudia Roth (Greens) had previously warned against mentioning that migrants were more criminal than Germans, but the AfD member of the Bundestag and police officer Martin Hess disagreed. Anyone who still denies the migrant crime problem either has no idea or deliberately lies to the German population, wrote Hess on Twitter.
“Statistically speaking, refugees are more likely to be criminals than Germans, and about ten times as often for crimes that particularly affect our internal security.” Hess insisted that the mainstream media had a political agenda. “The disproportionately high crime rate of refugees can be demonstrated, on the basis of the data collected and listed in the police crime statistics,” he said.
“This is not rocket science at all: crime statistics show the number of suspected Germans, non-Germans and immigrants for certain crimes,” Hess explained to Berlin weekly Junge Freiheit. During the migrant influx, 80 percent of the new arrivals were young men. At that time, the AfD warned that this was statistically a group of people who were disproportionately involved in crime.
“The point is that the refugees who have come to us – mostly young, single men from Islamic cultures – are significantly more criminal than the average German,” Hess added. The AfD politician previously served in the police in Baden-Württemberg, and lectured at the University of Police in Baden-Württemberg.
In the past few weeks, rioting mobs of young men, the majority of them with a migration background, had made headlines after clashes with law enforcement in Cologne, Stuttgart and Frankfurt am Main. The police were often violently attacked.
Worse still, the Berlin police record an average of around a dozen sexual offenses… every day. From March 1 through July 7 this year, officials recorded more than 1 600 cases of sexual harassment, rape, pornography and assault, according to a parliamentary response to MP Marcel Luthe (FDP). In the case of rapes in particularly serious cases – if they were particularly humiliating or gang rapes – the majority were foreign suspects (54 percent). The migration background of German suspects was not specified, suggesting the numbers may even be higher.

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. 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.
