    The scientist from the Pasteur Institute in Paris shared the 2008 Nobel Prize in Physiology or Medicine with Francoise Barre-Sinoussi and Germany’s Harald zur Hausen. He will be remembered as a scientist who spoke the truth to power.

    Critic of vaccines for children

    Already on November 7, 2017, Montagnier participated with Henri Joyeux in a press conference where he agreed with several arguments of the anti-vaccine speakers which were hotly refuted by the medical community at the time. He said vaccines were responsible for sudden infant death syndrome and announced that he had “a US legal file concerning a baby who died in the United States after being vaccinated” because adjuvants based on aluminum salt were “responsible for an immune storm in infants”.

    He added that the “paracetamol which we give to infants when they have a reaction to the vaccine, is poison”.

    A hundred academicians of science and medicine co-signed a column following this event, stating that Montagnier “was using his Nobel Prize to disseminate, outside the scope of his competence, messages dangerous to health, in defiance ethics which should govern science and medicine”.

    According to the Swiss Medical Review, the professor — “seduced by the irrational” — was “disowned by the Institut Pasteur, of which he is still professor emeritus, and denounced by the National Academy of Medicine, of which he is still a member without ever setting foot there”.

    For French daily Le Figaro, Montagnier had “signed his scientific death warrant” after his declarations on the memory of water, or those on Africans and HIV.

    But Montagnier persisted in attacking vaccinations: “Some children die 24 hours after being vaccinated. We still have the right to wonder about this temporal correlation. It’s just common sense. Even if we cannot demonstrate causality, there is a temporal relationship.”

    HIV Aids

    In the 2009 documentary House of Numbers Montagnier denied the causal relationship of HIV to AIDS, saying that with a good immune system, supported by good antioxidant nutrition, the body defends itself better against viral attacks and that one can “be exposed to HIV several times without being chronically infected” if one has a “good” immune system.

    The un-cut footage from the documentary revealed the truth about AIDS  because nutrition, not expensive medication, was actually the answer.

    “I believe this is one of the ways to approach the problem to decrease the rate of transmission. I believe you can be exposed to HIV multiple times without becoming chronically infected. If you have a good immune system, it will get rid of the virus in a few weeks. And that is also the problem of Africans: their food is not very balanced, they are under oxidative stress, even if they are not infected with HIV. Basically, their immune system is not working well, and therefore can allow the virus to enter the body and stay there.”

    Coronavirus SARS-CoV-2

    In April 2020, Luc Montagnier hypothesized that the severe acute respiratory syndrome Coronavirus 2, the cause of the Covid-19 pandemic, “came out of a Chinese laboratory with HIV DNA”. A sequence of the virus of human immunodeficiency was introduced into the genome of the Coronavirus in an attempt to justify a vaccine.

    This thesis was agian hotly refuted by the “scientific community” because the sequences “are very small elements that are found in other viruses of the same family, other Coronaviruses in nature. These are pieces of the genome which in fact resemble a lot of sequences in the genetic material of bacteria, viruses and plants,” the pharma shill and virologist Étienne Simon-Lorière from the Institut Pasteur maintained.

    However, according to an analysis published on March 17, 2020, in the journal Nature Medicine by a group of researchers from five different universities (Columbia, Scripps, Edinburgh, Sydney and New Orleans), SARS-CoV-2 “it is currently impossible to prove or disprove [other theories]”.

    According to the newspaper Le Monde, only “conspiracy theories relayed among others by Professor Luc Montagnier suggest human intervention”.

    Luc Montagnier also stated in the documentary Hold-up that “it was vaccination that created the variants”.

    Public commitments

    In his youth, Montagnier was a communist and member of the French Communist Party (PCF).

    DESTRUCTIVE HAILSTORMS will become more frequent and violent with increasingly larger hail, predicted solar researcher Valentina Zharkova back in 2019 when she stated that it's one of many signs of an impending Grand Solar Minimum. This is exactly what we have witnessed this year in both Europe and the world. Here is the German town of Benediktbeuern in Bavaria after a hailstorm on August 26th. Almost all rooftops and cars were damaged. The centuries-old church and monastery were damaged for the first time ever. Interestingly, the monastery was rebuilt in 1699 during the Maunder Minimum. Combined with heavy rainfall, extreme weather will devastate a significant portion of our food production. For instance, heavy rainfall destroyed a quarter of all crops in Greece in just two days in September. However, mainstream media remains silent. Photo: X @safe0007/Sandor Feher

    NOAA Predicts Zero Sunspots for Almost the Whole 2030s

    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.

    NATIONALIST COLLABORATION TAKES SHAPE. Six parties met in Budapest on August 26th to sign a joint declaration confirming the friendship and political unity among the parties. The goal is to either form a new group in the European Parliament after the EU elections in June next year or to reconstitute the existing Identity and Democracy (ID) group with the new parties.

    European Nationalist Parties Forge Cooperation Ahead of EU Elections

    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.

    Turkey Believes Sweden Hasn’t Done Enough

    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.

    Swedish Weapon Takes Down Russia’s Best Attack Helicopter

    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 held its conference during the last weekend of July in the thousand-year-old city of Magdeburg, located by the Elbe River in the eastern German state of Saxony. The first of the two conference days began with a strong program speech by the party's male spokesperson. Subsequently, party officials were elected and motions were addressed. The second day was entirely devoted to candidate selection and positioning for the EU election in June next year. Screenshot: AfD on Facebook

    Strong Confidence in German AfD

    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.

    Maximilian Krah is one of the AfD politicians who is singled out as an ethnonationalist, as he has stated that there is a distinction between ethnic Germans and immigrants who have obtained German citizenship. Krah is a Member of the European Parliament and AfD's top candidate for the upcoming European Union election next year. Still image: AfD on Facebook

    The Establishment Wants to Ban Germany’s Second Largest Party – for the Sake of Democracy

    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."

    FvD was quick to support the protests against covid restrictions. Today, the party also stands behind the farmers protests against the governments’ plans to close a big portion of the farms in the country for the sake of “climate”. The picture is from a protest against covid restrictions in Amsterdam in January of last year. Photo: Wion

    The Ursula von der Leyen Affair

    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.

    Publisher of Unique Literature Worldwide Blocked by International Distributor

    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.
