German MPs applaud Zelensky’s shameless stunt in the Bundestag

Last week in Berlin's House of Representatives saw a grand entrance by Ukrainian ambassador Andrij Melnyk. The man has become notorious in recent weeks for demanding more and more weapons from Germany and insulting the pro-Ukrainian German Chancellor Olaf Scholz on talk shows.

    But for Melnyk, like his president, enough is never enough: NATO should establish a no-fly zone in Ukraine– that means a direct military confrontation with the Russians. In plain language: the Third World War.

    On 27 April 2015, Melnyk laid flowers at the tomb of Nazi Stepan Bandera in Munich. Germany’s hyper-strict anti-Nazi laws never came into play somehow. Wikipedia

    What does an opposition party do when someone like that enters parliament? Protest with signs saying “warmonger”? Do they stage a walk-out? At least remain silent in their seats? The Berlin AfD parliamentary group did nothing of the sort. Like all the old parties, their MPs rose dutifully from their seats and applauded the deluded Melnyk.

    There were two only exceptions: the MP Gunnar Lindemann and his caucus colleague Harald Laatsch had wanted to remain seated when the Kiev extremist took to the podium. But the embarrassment for the rest of the AfD people would have been to great. It was therefore agreed that the two did not have to be present during Melnyk’s appearance and could go off and drink coffee.

    On Thursday morning, the same comedy was performed in the German Bundestag: Ukrainian President Zelensky spoke (via live video link) to the MPs.

    The Ukrainian president shamelessly appealed to Germany’s “historical responsibility for Ukraine” during his speech to the German Bundestag. Some 80 years after the Second World War, cities like Kharkiv were being destroyed again, he lamented. In view of what he sees as Germany’s still strong economic ties to Russia, he wondered whether the words “Never again!” were still worth anything.

    Germany and other countries had put the brakes on many sanctions before the Russian invasion, thus encouraging Russia, he whined. For some, only “economy, economy, economy” counts. The clown singled out the Nord Stream 2 gas pipeline, which has been put on hold in the meantime.

    The Ukrainian President renewed his accusations that Russia was “waging a war of extermination in Ukraine”. Schools, hospitals and churches were allegedly being shelled. In this context, he recalled the massacre of Jews by German soldiers in in 1941. He explicitly thanked the companies that put “the lives of children” above economic interests. He ended his speech to standing applause from all factions with the words “Long live Ukraine”.

    His Russian counterpart had earlier denounced the ruling clique in Ukraine as a “bunch of neo-Nazis”, but according to Zelensky that was impossible because he is Jewish. On the sixth day of the conflict, he had accused Russia of having bombed the Babi Yar memorial where the Jews had been massacred by the Nazis.

    The Yad Vashem Memorial, the Israeli institution that preserves the memory of the Nazi “final solution of the Jewish question”, issued an angry statement condemning the bombing in the strongest terms. Except that the whole thing had been faked.

    “Then Israeli journalists went to the crime scene to find that it had never been bombed. The Ukrainian president had lied. Then the Kremlin spokesman, Dmitry Peskov, invited the Yad Vashem Memorial to send a delegation to Ukraine to see for themselves, under the protection of the Russian army,” Thierry Meyssan explained.

    A great silence followed.”

    German editorialist Jürgen Elsässer meanwhile expressed his frustration with overly subservient politicians. “German patriots must represent German interests, not Ukrainian ones. There are arsonists ruling in Kiev who want to drag the whole world into the abyss in order to save their regime. Ukraine’s strongest fighting units like Azov are real Nazis who dream of their own power but only do the dirty work for NATO.”

    He said peace with Russia was in Germany’s interest. “Whenever there has been peace between the two peoples, whether under Chancellor Bismarck or Chancellor Brandt, it has been good for the two peoples – and for the German continent. If there is one lesson to be learned from history, it is this: Germans and Russians must never again allow themselves to be set against each other.”

    He said Germany should withdraw from the NATO war front right away. “Not a soldier for NATO, not a cent for NATO, no sanctions against Russia, no hatred of Russia. Instead, open Nord Stream 2, the pipeline of peace. Even in the coldest times of the Cold War, Moscow never misused its energy supplies to blackmail Germany.”

    He added that only neutrality would ensured the survival of German-speaking people. “Without NATO, we can initiate a belt of non-aligned states from the Baltic to the Black Sea – at peace with America and Russia.”

    The Green Economics Minister Robert Habeck is aware of the changing mood in Germany and has warned of the unforeseeable social upheaval that would result from an immediate cessation of oil and gas supplies from Russia. In terms of domestic policy, this could have catastrophic consequences similar to those of a no-air zone enforced by NATO over Ukraine in terms of foreign and military policy.

    Do Germans really value solidarity with a regime of the multimillionaires Zelensky and the mayor of Kiev, Vitali Klitschko? The social question is inevitably linked to the war, because voters will ultimately receive the bill for solidarity with the Zelenskys and Klitschkos.

    Swedish military wants to remilitarize the Åland Islands

    The demilitarized autonomy has previously been known as 'the islands of peace.

    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.
