A secret Dutch deal with the Rothschilds raises eyebrows
In the Netherlands, the outgoing culture minister Ingrid van Engelshoven (D66) said that her ministry wanted to make the artwork by a white male “accessible to everyone” again. She had secretly informed all party leaders in the House of Representatives of the cabinet's plans to purchase a Rembrandt painting. All party leaders were contacted, except FVD leader Thierry Baudet.

It turned out to have been a conscious choice to keep the deal secret: “We had to be sure that the purchase would remain under wraps.” With Baudet there were no guarantees, because of “the way in which he conducts politics with his party”, said the retiring minister. She also claimed not to have been influenced: “I made a decision for myself: the importance of confidentiality weighed more heavily.” But why should such a purchase be kept secret?

Van Engelshoven is close to WEF pet and D66 party leader Sigrid Kaag. A letter from the WEF, a private organization addressed to Kaag, specifically noted that the participation of her party members would “become a major force in shaping the Great Reset”.
The purchasing process surrounding the canvas, De Vaandeldrager, is surrounded by mystery. No less than 175 million euros is involved in the deal that the Dutch state has concluded with the Rothschild family with Dutch tax money.
Curious concern from a die-hard feminist
Van Engelshoven is a die-hard feminist and a harsh critic of the “white patriarchy”. According to her, there are too many “white men” working at colleges and universities in the Netherlands. Her sudden concern over a painting of a white man by a white man seems strange, to say the least.
Until recently, the minister maintained that the presence of white men at institutions of higher learning leads to “nasty incidents involving intimidation of female employees” and had qualified the decision of the TU Eindhoven to no longer accept white men for new vacancies as “courageous”.
The Dutch Institute for Human Rights later ruled that this decision violated Dutch equality laws.
The deal raises questions
Baudet, together with MP Simone Kerseboom, have been asking questions about the state of affairs. They wanted to know why FVD was not informed and also had questions about the motives of the wealthy Rothschild family. It turns out that no French museum had been willing or able to pay the asking price.
“Were there perhaps certain aspects and/or interests of the Rothschild family involved in the discussions about which you did not wish to receive critical questions?” the MPs ask Van Engelshoven. “In general, how do you view the political positioning of the Rothschild family?”
Kerseboom and Baudet also wanted to know from the minister how this powerful family was connected to the Dutch government. “Do you see the family as an international economic power? If so, how did you factor in this power factor in your decision to transfer a total of EUR 175 million (of which in any case approximately EUR 150 million in tax money) to them?”
“Are you aware that with this amount you could support the Rothschild family in pursuing their political and social goals?” they asked. “So can we assume that the cabinet shares the political goals of the Rothschild family?”
The FVD MPs also asked the minister whether other things had been promised to the Rothschild family in addition to financial compensation. Think, for example, of promises or political-social guarantees, but also access to top civil servants and ministers.
The number one trending hashtag on Twitter in Dutch over the last day has been #wefpapers.
Baudet confirmed through his spokesperson that he was indeed kept in the dark by Van Engelshoven. “Apparently the minister watches and listens too much to the mainstream media, because she has a completely distorted image of Mr Baudet. The minister should know how many secrets he has been keeping.”

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.
Top Researchers Push Back Against Climate Lies."The correlation is as clear as day," explained the Israeli astrophysicist Nir Shaviv, who was hailed by the establishment, before his interview with Forbes was hastily deleted. What he says contradicts the climate narrative, which points to humans as responsible for Earth's climate. Shaviv firmly asserts that it is the sun that controls the climate, something that can be scientifically proven in many ways. Contrary to the popular belief, the sun's influence on Earth has, in recent years, caused unusually cold and rainy weather, a trend that solar researchers warn will worsen significantly in the coming decades. The sun has exhibited an unusually low activity since 2016, during Solar Cycle 24, which was the weakest in a century.
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."
What is happening in the Netherlands? It is often difficult to follow events in other countries, especially when distorted by system media. We give Forum for Democracy (FvD) the opportunity to speak out on the political situation in the Netherlands and the staunch resistance they face in trying to save the country.
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.
