Merkel lies about rescuing Afghan allies
German soldiers flew many people from Afghanistan to Germany, especially with the A400M aircraft of the German Federal Air Force. Now it has become known that among the “rescued” Afghans “were hardly any local staff”.

Bild-Zeitung reported that according to its own information, the Bundeswehr has flown out more than 4000 Afghan nationals since the fall of Kabul. But the German daily has now learned that only a fraction of them were actually “local staff” who worked for the Bundeswehr and other German organizations and these allies have been in danger since the Taliban’s triumphant advance.
Bild learned from a conference between the Ministry of the Interior, the Foreign Office and other authorities on Thursday, that of almost 3600 Afghans who had been flown out since August 17, only around 100 were actually local staff, and around 370 of their family members had been taken on the flight.
Is the German federal government lying?
It appears as if the Merkel administration had been caught lying, because on Wednesday the Foreign Office had declared that there were “a considerable number of former local workers” among the Afghans who had been rescued from the Taliban.
Chancellor Angela Merkel had also announced that the government wanted to ensure that “above all” local Afghan workers were brought to Germany.
“This project failed,” according to information from the Bild newspaper, because a total of more than 13 000 local employees and their family members had received an acceptance letter from the federal government. In the past few months, only a small number have been brought to Germany on the Bundeswehr evacuation mission.
From these indications one can conclude that masses of “refugees” are coming to Western Europe from Afghanistan, the vast majority of whom travel with modern cell phones, but surprisingly without valid papers.
From generally well-informed circles it is said that the Afghans who made it to the transport aircraft of the Federal Air Force at the Kabul airport were not strictly checked for their identity. Representatives of the federal government announced that such precise checks would only take place after their arrival in Germany.
Thousands land at Ramstein
Around 20 500 evacuees from Afghanistan already landed at Ramstein Air Base in Rhineland-Palatinate – the world’s largest US air force base outside of America – by this weekend. Ramstein has been a US hub for refugees from Afghanistan since August 20.
About 100 aircraft of the United States Air Force have arrived at the air base, reported a spokeswoman for the base. More than 5000 evacuees had traveled from there on around 22 flights. The flights are expected to last for the whole weekend, reported the Epoch Times.
‘How many Afghan women actually care about a German dead soldier?’
On Wednesday the Bundestag debated the Afghanistan mission. Right after Chancellor Angela Merkel, who may have given her last speech in parliament as her last term nears its end, AfD parliamentary group leader Alexander Gauland replied.
Gauland described the international Afghanistan mission as wrong from the start. The idea of exporting the Western way of life had totally imploded, he pointed out. Gauland said the notion of “One World” has been shattered by the events in Afghanistan. “The majority of Afghans don’t give a damn about westernization. Anyone who thinks that one can treat deep, ethnic and cultural imprints with education courses and gender mainstreaming is only attesting to a monstrous ignorance,” he said.
The AfD co-leader also stated that his parliamentary group only supported the evacuation of former local armed forces to a very limited extent. In addition to the former Bundeswehr auxiliaries and their families, Germany should not accept any further refugees.
Then Gauland talked about the 59 dead German soldiers who had given their lives for nothing in the Afghanistan mission. “In order to bring gender equality into the Muslim world, German men had to lose their lives there. How many Afghan women in the highest offices or girls in schools actually care about a German dead soldier? ”
And finally he said: “Instead of defending women’s rights against the Taliban in the East, the Bundeswehr should rather protect the German borders from the dangers that arise from the influx of people to whom our way of life is completely alien: 2015 must not be repeated!”

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.

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.
