Germany pauses AstraZeneca vaccine again with 31 new cases of blood clotting
The EU recently decided to resume vaccination with AstraZeneca's vaccine, but new reports of blood clots are already coming in.

Germany’s vaccine coordinator announced on Tuesday that it has registered 31 cases of blood clots in the brain, nine of which resulted in death. Most (seven) of dead were women, and all casualties were aged between 20-63.
Germany has now once again decided to suspend vaccination with AstraZeneca’s vaccine for anyone under the age of 60 as the blood clots mainly affected this age group. However, the elderly continue to receive the vaccine, Reuters reported.
In total, AstraZeneca has issued 2,7 million doses of vaccine in Germany.
A 58-year-old woman died in Dessau-Roßlau after an AstraZeneca vaccination. The press office of the city administration announced this on Wednesday. “There is a suspicion that there is a possible connection between the vaccination and the death of the citizen,” said city spokesman Carsten Sauer after the meeting of the pandemic staff. That must now be clarified.
The woman was vaccinated on Friday March 19. An initial report that the vaccination took place on March 29 was corrected by the city in the late afternoon.
At the instruction of the pandemic staff, AstraZeneca vaccination in Dessau-Roßlau was therefore suspended for the time being. “Instead, the BioNTech vaccine will be used,” said Sauer.
The already existing vaccination appointments, including on Easter Saturday, will remain, according to the city administration.
Similarly, the district of Euskirchen in the state of North Rhine-Westphalia, announced on Monday that vaccinations with the AstraZeneca vaccine for women under 55 years of age will be suspended with immediate effect. Men will be able to get the jab however. Two women in the district had previously developed sinus vein thrombosis after the vaccinations, and one 47-year-old patient died, RT reported.
The other patient is being cared for in a special clinic and is in stable condition, according to a statement from the district. Investigations into both cases have been launched, the responsible state and federal authorities announced.
The decision to halt the AstraZeneca vaccine came from the head of the health department and the chief vaccinator. According to District Administrator Markus Ramers it was simply a precautionary measure however. “No vaccine is destroyed – all women who cannot be offered a vaccination today or tomorrow will be re-vaccinated in a timely manner.”
It is a precautionary measure until the responsible specialist departments have come to a final assessment. Thus the vaccinations for men as well as vaccinations with the vaccines of other pharmaceutical companies are also expected to continue.
But notably, none of the three other experimental Covid-19 vaccines now being distributed in the US and Europe have been demonstrated to protect against infection with or transmission of the virus believed to cause SARS-CoV-2, or even prevent symptoms of the disease from developing.
The benefit from any of the vaccines distributed currently is being touted as the vaccinated showing lesser or fewer symptoms after becoming infected. While this is an important consideration, this benefit evidently has nothing to do with preventing the spread of the virus SARS-Cov-2 or mandating vaccine “passports”.
On February 27, 2021, the US Food and Drug Administration (FDA) announced it had “issued an emergency use authorization (EUA) for the third vaccine” which is the Janssen (Johnson&Johnson) jab, identical to the EUAs previously issued for Pfizer-Biontech and Moderna.
In each of the EUAs, the FDA has avoided any claim that the vaccines provide protection against infection or transmission of the virus. Also, the Centers for Disease Control (CDC), the World Health Organization (WHO), and the National Institutes of Health (NIH) have each publicly stated that the vaccines do not prevent infection or transmission. On January 29, 2021, the WHO admitted: “We do not know whether the vaccines will prevent infection and protect against onward transmission.”
In the FDA’s own Briefing Document on clinical trial data for the Pfizer vaccine, it stated that “data are limited to assess the effect of the vaccine against asymptomatic infection” and “data are limited to assess the effect of the vaccine against transmission of SARS-CoV-2 [virus] from individuals who are infected despite vaccination”. Ditto for Moderna and the Janssen vaccine for which it cited the same “limited” data.
A vaccine obligation therefore, may require people who are already immune to still get vaccinated, which makes no sense, while plans for a future clinical trial to measure infection prevention, will not be completed until December 31, 2023.

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.
The Catholic bishops of the Scandinavian countries presented an open five-page letter criticizing transgender ideology on March 21, just before Easter.
