German secret service brand Corona critics ‘enemies of the state’
According to the President of the Federal Office for the Protection of the Constitution, which is the domestic spy agency, demonstrators in the Corona protests can no longer be clearly assigned to right-wing or left-wing extremism since they all "fundamentally reject the democratic state". The pandemic is only an excuse for rising up against the state, it claimed.

Spy chief Thomas Haldenwang believes the “enemies of the state” are the demonstrators against the government’s Corona policy. Haldenwang told the Frankfurter Allgemeine Sunday newspaper that these could no longer be clearly assigned to previous categories such as right-wing or left-wing extremism. They are not linked by ideological definitions, but by contempt for the democratic constitutional state and its representatives. “They fundamentally reject our democratic political system.”
These “extremists” only use the pandemic as an excuse to rebel, he said. “Whether it’s Corona or refugee policy. Or the flood disaster: You saw some of the same people trying to give the impression that the state was failing and not doing anything for the people,” said Haldenwang. It was not yet possible to reliably say how big the scene is because it is extremely heterogeneous.
More people are taking to the streets
Haldenwang described the “increasingly strong parallels between PEGIDA and the ‘Corona walks'”. Sometimes the same slogans are shouted. For a long time it looked as if right-wing extremists were trying unsuccessfully to shape the demonstration but “that is currently changing”.
In Saxony, for example, the Freie Sachsen [Free Saxons] group has succeeded in exerting a significant influence on the multifaceted protest movement in the region. In this respect, one can say that right-wing extremists are gaining influence, at least regionally, he complained.
Freie Sachsen is a micro-party that is viewed as “right-wing extremist and anti-constitutional”. The AfD federal board has not put the group on its incompatibility list and has not distanced itself from the group. Instead, the AfD adopted the following formulation: The party is “a bogus giant that the AfD does not have to deal with any further”.
Its representatives have urged resistance to ridiculous police measures during protests against the Corona measures. The “dangerous” Freie Sachsen has developed into one of the many platforms for anti-Corona protests in the state and, according to their own statements, now only have 1000 members.

The dynamics of the protests against the Corona policy in Germany have been changing. In the past, there were mainly large demonstrations but currently things are more decentralized and more and more people are taking to the streets for “walks“. In the first week of January alone, there were more than 1000 events with more than 200 000 people in one day.
The “radical nature” of some participants, which is not only expressed through “violence against the police and media representatives”, but also through hate speech on the Internet, is also a cause for concern, Haldenwang added. Haldenwang’s disconnect from reality is quite extraordinary.

“It is striking that the police are increasingly coming into focus as an enemy. Task forces are increasingly being attacked not only during the protests, but also in virtual space and defamed, for example, as ‘mercenaries’ or ‘murderers of the system’,” said Haldenwang.
The head of the Office for the Protection of the Constitution expressed the fear that “extremists” could look for a new cause after the end of the pandemic in order to exploit it for their purposes. These could be government measures to protect the climate, he said. “It is also conceivable that the topic of climate protection will be instrumentalized. Intensifying government measures to curb climate change could be perceived as unlawful and rejected.”
The irony of Haldenwang’s statement is not lost
Haldenwang’s outrageous statement led to fireworks on Twitter. The hashtag #Ichbinstaatsfeind [#I am an enemy of the state] soon trended on Twitter with witty and stark messages. The messages are a beacon of hope in these dark times, when even a chancellor no longer knows that his task is to protect citizens, uphold the law and enforce borders.
All systems, more or less authoritarian and disconnected from reality, reach a point where they are ridiculed, laughed at by the intelligent and then implode. Reading these tweets, the suspicion arises that Germans are heading for an exit.

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.
The Catholic bishops of the Scandinavian countries presented an open five-page letter criticizing transgender ideology on March 21, just before Easter. The document primarily expresses care and advice and was read aloud in Catholic churches in Sweden, Norway, Finland, Denmark, and Iceland. Cardinal Anders Arborelius, Bishop of Stockholm, is one of the signatories of the document.
