‘Illegals a jackpot for dozens of non-profit organizations’
The European Fund for Asylum, Migration and Integration (AMIF) provides money to European countries for the implementation of a program aimed at "handling migration flows efficiently". Flemish federal representative Ellen Samyn (Vlaams Belang) said the money goes to funding illegal immigration.

“Belgium received 183 million euros between 2014 and today of the more than 3 billion euros that the European Commission has earmarked for this.”
Of this 183 million euros, almost 150 million euros remained at the federal level, while Flanders and Wallonia each received 16,6 million euros. “What eventually happens to all that money is highly unclear,” said Samyn, who addressed a written question about this to State Secretary for Asylum and Migration Sammy Mahdi (CD&V). “Unfortunately, the response was as short as it was disappointing. We were none the wiser.”
“In a manner of speaking, there are more subsidized staff members in non-profit organizations working in projects concerning the voluntary return of illegal immigrants than the number of illegal immigrants they actually return,” Samyn said.
“Our tax money goes to 280 different projects just like that. So this is yet another subsidy carousel for ‘friendly’ non-profit organizations that eat from the Purple-Green coalition hand,” continued Samyn. “There are 35 projects that are allegedly committed to the return of illegal immigrants. But during the first five months of this year, 764 people have returned ‘voluntarily’ out of an estimated 100 000 to 150 000 illegal immigrants residing in Belgium. So there are probably more subsidized staff members working in such projects than the number of illegal immigrants they send back.”
Purple is the term for a government coalition of social democrats and liberals, excluding Christian democrats. It is derived from the combination of the colour of the social democrats (red) and liberals (blue) in Belgium and the Netherlands.
And it is clear from Mahdi’s answer that he does not want anyone snooping around his budget. “He has seven ongoing projects that are referred to as ‘special cases’ and that consume 61 million euros,” said Samyn. “But it is unclear what those ‘special cases’ are, [but] money flows there anyway.” A special service has been set up within the FPS Home Affairs to monitor these subsidies. But as yet no answer has been received to a written question to Minister of the Interior Annelies Verlinden (CD&V).
“People throw money away by not acting unambiguously and decisively”, concluded Samyn. “The illegal immigrant industry is a business model for many dozens of non-profit organizations in which the Purple-Green just like the previous government has joined in. And meanwhile, Europe’s borders are under increasing pressure. As long as this pamper policy is implemented, they will continue to come en masse.”

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.
