Macron lobs a grenade at the French, which social media explodes in his face
It was both astounding and to be expected: the President of the Republic, in an interview with a French daily, lobbed a grenade at all French citizens, not just the unvaccinated.

It is quite staggering because a sitting president has never gone that far in an official statement, but not unexpected because Macron has been showing signs of mental fog. It seems that the relentless resistance of antivaxxers, fed by the growing mistrust of the double-vaccinated in booster shots, have been vindicated. Vaccine acceptance has fallen from 80 percent for the first two jabs to 35 percent for the third booster shot.
Even those French deputies, who have steadfastly been behind the vaccination campaign, were flabbergasted.
The advantage of the French president declaring that he “really wants to piss off the unvaccinated” to make their lives unbearable, was first of all to wake up the slumbering Yellow Vests, left stunned for two years by the violence of police repression (2018-2019) and then the pandemic: They will be protesting again on January 8.
That both the antivaxxers and the Yellow Vests are angry with the inadmissible remarks of a President in office, is understandable. What is less so, is the panicked reaction of the pro-Macron sycophant Raphael Glucksmann: “Since the beginning of the pandemic, I’ve been avoiding any easy criticism of an extremely difficult health management task. But a President should never speak like that.” Macron’s minions do not appear as confident as before.
Macron’s childish ultimatum reported by le Parisien will have dire consequences… for Macron himself. It has now become possible to insult the President. Until now, there has been a sort of verbal non-aggression pact between the politico-media representatives and the regime. His provocation has however unleashed a flood of invective on French social platforms, even from the most serene public figures.
“How crazy do you have to be to put your masked mug in a thumbnail?”
“How much did Pfizer pay this scumbag?”
“France is presided over by a sociopathic retarded teenager. Now you can’t say you didn’t know.”
“These people [leaders] are increasingly dangerous!”
“Macron and his clique of Playmobils, like all dictators, are wiping their asses with the few crumbs of democracy that might remain in this ravaged country.”
“He has never even spoken like this about terrorists, drug dealers, paedophiles, criminals… It’s disgraceful, he’s gone mad. Disgusting.”
“The policy of loss of citizenship is now fully accepted at the highest level of the state. A major turning point.”
Are the unvaccinated ‘more dangerous than terrorists’?
Republican MP Eric Ciotti, another vaccine pusher, described an organized debate on this issue by the executive as “ridiculous” citing “administrative difficulties” after a massive blowback in the National Assembly as well as on social media. Ciotti is evidently worried about the devastating impact that Macron’s threats could have on vaccine adherents and tried to soften the blow.
He explained on public broadcaster France Inter: “Either it’s a provocation, or it’s amateurism, maybe a bit of both,” The “provocation”, according to him, were the words of Emmanuel Macron who not only wanted to “piss off” the unvaccinated, but also affirmed that the latter, because they were “irresponsible”, were “no longer citizens”.
Denouncing an “electoral strategy” of “rupture and division”, Ciotti recalled that Macron had refused in 2016 “the deprivation of nationality for Islamist terrorists based on the fact that everyone is a citizen”. “Now suddenly, the unvaccinated are more dangerous than terrorists?” he lamented. Ciotti nevertheless confirmed that he would vote for the vaccine pass.
Florian Philippot was not baffled by Macron’s taunts: “Contrary to what we often read, the number of nonvaccinated will not decrease but will only increase, with a drop week after week of French people who refuse new doses.” He added: “Macron’s comments deserve a revolution of 1789 to the power of 10! This guy is crazy!”
Professor Didier Raoult warned in his latest video against this madness: “This crisis reveals temptations that we have already seen in the past. When one is no longer able to distinguish facts from one’s own opinions, then one is in a dangerous business.”
The government wants to impose the vaccine pass without a vote of Parliament. “We’re looking at all this,” a minister told BFMTV recently. Many in the opposition fear that the government will impose Article 49.3 to enforce the vaccine pass.
Article 49 paragraph 3 of the French Constitution allows the government to pass the text of the law without a ballot. “In this case, this project is considered adopted, unless a motion of censure, filed within the next twenty-four hours, is voted under the conditions provided for in the previous paragraph”, explained the government website.

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.
