The elephant in the room: The deadly flu epidemic of 2017/2018

Covid-19 is undoubtedly a dangerous virus from which the aged with previous illnesses as well as younger people can die in exceptional cases. But the coercive measures ordered by globalist politicians in Europe override the basic rights of citizens, ruin the economy and by extension the livelihoods of large swathes of the population.

    The main argument for these draconian measures is a possible overload of hospitals, especially the intensive care units, due to an inflated number of Corona patients.

    When a former Chief Science Officer for the pharmaceutical giant Pfizer warned however that “there is no science to suggest a second wave should happen,” his video was taken down from YouTube in less than 2 hours.

    The insider, Dr Michael Yeadon, believes that false positive results from inherently unreliable Covid-19 tests are being used to manufacture a “second wave” based on “new cases”. Yeadon’s warnings are confirmed by a new study from the Infectious Diseases Society of America.

    The German government’s argument about overflowing hospital emergency rooms, has since been refuted by a study in which 421 clinics participated anyway. Almost 2,8 million hospital cases during the “first corona wave” from March to August 2020 were evaluated.

    With regard to the feared overloading of the hospitals, it turned out that there were fewer patients with a severe acute respiratory infection (SARI) in the period mentioned than in the comparison months of 2019. In addition, there were in 2020 fewer sick people in the intensive care unit and overall less ventilation than in 2019.

    The details of the study are available on Boris Reitschuster’s blog, who first came across this information, which was hushed up by the mainstream media.

    Covid-19 has therefore neither led to more clinically registered SARI patients in Germany nor to more intensive care admissions or ventilation. Overall, the German health system saw no more such patients than it had during the normal flu season last year.

    Nevertheless, with the active help of the mainstream media, the government has been hammering German citizens day after day to deprive them of their basic rights, pretending that there is no alternative to the latest coercive Corona measures.

    But there is also another proverbial elephant in the political and media room, which cannot be overlooked and yet is hushed up by the mainstream. This elephant is called Influenza and it begs the question of why Corona is being singled out as the only danger.

    Even the World Health Organization now admits that Covid-19 is significantly less dangerous than previously thought. There are at least as many long-term and after effects from Influenza as have been found with the Coronavirus.

    In Germany to date, no significant excess mortality related to the Coronavirus has been signalled, whereas during the flu epidemic in winter 2017/2018 more than 25 000 lives were lost. During this flu epidemic, the hospital system actually collapsed in parts – in contrast to Covid.

    If there had been similar scenes in German hospitals like the one in a video that was filmed during the flu wave in the winter of 2017/2018, the Merkel administration would have locked up all citizens and thrown away the key.

    The result of an observation study at the University Medical Center Hamburg-Eppendorf showed how dangerous the Influenza strain that caused the flu epidemic in winter 2017/2018 had been. The period from December 25, 2017 to April 8, 2018 was observed.

    The main results revealed that 24 percent of the Influenza smears in the emergency room of the university hospital were positive. In total, an Influenza infection was found in 255 patients. Of these 255, 179 were treated as inpatients and 51 in intensive care. Of the 255 patients who tested positive for Influenza, 23 died, that is 9 percent. Of those who had died, four had been vaccinated against the flu.

    During this flu epidemic, the health system in Germany was actually brought to the edge of a cliff. Nevertheless, nothing, absolutely nothing, was done to better prepare for such cases in the future. Media coverage of this most serious flu epidemic in almost 30 years was also limited. Most people never realized how dramatic the situation had been back then.

    Shutting down public and economic life using “Corona” as an excuse and accepting the devastating consequences, while at the same time shrugging off one of the most severe flu epidemics, strips any coercive Corona measures of logic, credibility and acceptance.

    The so-called recent “Civil Protection Act” was pushed through the German Bundestag at record speed and many MPs did not know what they were voting on, and only a few had the courage to evade parliamentary group pressure. The law is not well received by citizens, but those who had tried to demonstrate peacefully in Berlin, were hosed with water cannons.

    And in the event of a quarantine violation (completely healthy people can now be quarantined) there is a risk of fines of up to 25 000 euros or imprisonment.

    Swedish military wants to remilitarize the Åland Islands

    The demilitarized autonomy has previously been known as 'the islands of peace.

    DESTRUCTIVE HAILSTORMS will become more frequent and violent with increasingly larger hail, predicted solar researcher Valentina Zharkova back in 2019 when she stated that it's one of many signs of an impending Grand Solar Minimum. This is exactly what we have witnessed this year in both Europe and the world. Here is the German town of Benediktbeuern in Bavaria after a hailstorm on August 26th. Almost all rooftops and cars were damaged. The centuries-old church and monastery were damaged for the first time ever. Interestingly, the monastery was rebuilt in 1699 during the Maunder Minimum. Combined with heavy rainfall, extreme weather will devastate a significant portion of our food production. For instance, heavy rainfall destroyed a quarter of all crops in Greece in just two days in September. However, mainstream media remains silent. Photo: X @safe0007/Sandor Feher

    NOAA Predicts Zero Sunspots for Almost the Whole 2030s

    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.

    NATIONALIST COLLABORATION TAKES SHAPE. Six parties met in Budapest on August 26th to sign a joint declaration confirming the friendship and political unity among the parties. The goal is to either form a new group in the European Parliament after the EU elections in June next year or to reconstitute the existing Identity and Democracy (ID) group with the new parties. Pictured from left to right: Mikael Jansson (Alternative for Sweden), Thierry Baudet (Forum for Democracy, Netherlands), László Toroczkai (Mi Hazánk, Hungary), Kostadin Kostadinov (Vazrazhdane, Bulgaria), and Josef Nerušil (Svoboda a přímá demokracie, Czech Republic).

    European Nationalist Parties Forge Cooperation Ahead of EU Elections

    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.

    Turkey Believes Sweden Hasn’t Done Enough

    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.

    Swedish Weapon Takes Down Russia’s Best Attack Helicopter

    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 held its conference during the last weekend of July in the thousand-year-old city of Magdeburg, located by the Elbe River in the eastern German state of Saxony. The first of the two conference days began with a strong program speech by the party's male spokesperson. Subsequently, party officials were elected and motions were addressed. The second day was entirely devoted to candidate selection and positioning for the EU election in June next year. Screenshot: AfD on Facebook

    Strong Confidence in German AfD

    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.

    Maximilian Krah is one of the AfD politicians who is singled out as an ethnonationalist, as he has stated that there is a distinction between ethnic Germans and immigrants who have obtained German citizenship. Krah is a Member of the European Parliament and AfD's top candidate for the upcoming European Union election next year. Still image: AfD on Facebook

    The Establishment Wants to Ban Germany’s Second Largest Party – for the Sake of Democracy

    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."

    FvD was quick to support the protests against covid restrictions. Today, the party also stands behind the farmers protests against the governments’ plans to close a big portion of the farms in the country for the sake of “climate”. The picture is from a protest against covid restrictions in Amsterdam in January of last year. Photo: Wion

    The Ursula von der Leyen Affair

    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.

    Publisher of Unique Literature Worldwide Blocked by International Distributor

    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.
