EU politician would like to see faces of BioNtech founders on banknotes
The European Central Bank could adorn its banknotes with the mugs of two Turkish vaccine producers. The proposal has come from the EU Parliament. The faces of the founders of BioNtech must be on the notes, said a German politician.

The European Central Bank (ECB) has received a suggestion from the EU Parliament for fresh designs on its legal tender from the FDP politician Moritz Körner. He has called for the two BioNtech founders Ugur Sahin and Özlem Türeci – sponsored by Bill Gates – to be pictured on one of the banknotes.
“Important European personalities” such as the founding couple of the pharmaceutical company should be printed on the new banknotes, the member of the European Parliament told German weekly Welt am Sonntag. Their work allegedly “saved the lives of millions of Europeans“. He offered no evidence for this lofty claim, perhaps because none exist.
The fawning Körner added: “Their lives are an impressive story of integration, advancement, entrepreneurship, academic excellence and the potential of an open immigration society.” Until about 2018 this company had recorded neither successes nor any profits, but that changed suddenly with the appearance of Sahin at the World Health Summit together with Bill Gates, Angela Merkel and WHO boss Tedros and the €50 million gift from the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation.
In the wake of the Corona pandemic, the Mainz vaccine manufacturer BioNtech managed to develop an approved vaccine against Covid-19 based on the so-called mRNA technology, he said. But it could also be an indictment rather than a promotion. How did they know that a pandemic was about to sweep across the globe?
Some twenty years after the introduction of the Euro, the European Central Bank has started a process of redesigning the banknotes. Citizens have been invited to share their thoughts on this. It will take years, however, before these revised notes are released into circulation. In 2024, the Governing Council will decide on the production of new banknotes and when they will be released, according to dpa.
All qualifications are equal
Meanwhile, an editor of the German business daily WirtschaftsWoche has been busy manufacturing consent for a multicultural society, soon to be reflected on the banknotes: “Germany must finally become a country of immigration!”
Sophie Crocoll, like Moritz Körner, also fantasizes about skilled workers welcomed into the country in as large a number as possible in order to prevent Germany’s economic strength from diminishing. Turks, Africans and Arabs should pay for the pensions of the baby boomers who will be exiting the labor market in the coming years.
Any well-informed person who is reasonably familiar with the reality of German immigration policy, however, will be alarmed at the sheer stupidity of Crocoll’s notion of a “skilled worker”.
She argues that the central problem is the fact that the professional qualifications of many immigrants are not recognized in Germany.
But if the car dealer from Rabat has been unable to work in Germany as a mechatronics technician and the medicine man from Burkina Faso as a surgeon, it may be because their qualifications are lacking. Crocoll dismisses such distinctions. The “skilled workers” who have not turned their poverty-ridden homelands into thriving economic landscapes, will somehow manage to do so in Germany according to her.
The truth is that Germany’s immigration policy has been hinged only on one single issue: the generous German social system. It attracts people who make a living from government benefits and there are several million of them worldwide willing to drown in the Mediterranean for these hand-outs.

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.
