German secret service operates fake accounts to lure ‘right-wing extremists’
Anyone who criticizes the German system is quickly labelled as an "extremist". But because the state still has not found enough "right-wing extremists", it has decided to help a little bit.

The Office for the Protection of the Constitution apparently maintains fake accounts in social networks, which serve the purpose of creating a certain mood.
Online hate speech in the pay of the state
As the Süddeutsche Zeitung (SZ) reported, the German Federal Office for the Protection of the Constitution is now running hundreds of fake right-wing extremist online accounts. Massive investments have been made in the campaign since 2019. That means: Agents paid by the state – i.e. financed from tax money – bully and agitate on social media, and are even allowed to commit crimes.
There are said to be so many that they have to coordinate in order not to shadow each other while they increase the record of alleged “right-wing extremist crimes”, mostly “propaganda crimes” actually.
What do they do?
These agents post racist slogans on migrants as well as hated “system politicians” and “traitors to the people”.
In addition to supposedly right-wing chat groups, the professional “troll group” primarily targets social media channels of Islamist, but also the “ideological conspiracy” milieu.
In order to gain the trust of other users, you have to come across as authentic as possible. “In order to be really credible, it’s not enough to share or like statements from others, you also have to make statements yourself. That means that the agents also bully and agitate.”
According to the agent, many victims of these infiltration methods had no idea how many accounts in their chat groups are now being run by agents for the protection of the constitution.
There are now so many fake accounts operated by the authority that nationwide agreements are necessary. Otherwise, they could target each other. But there is no doubt that the enormous mass of fake accounts is necessary, according to the Secret Service.
Over time, there is a growing danger among the fake right-wingers that they may become convinced by the ideas and slogans they simulate seriously and “succumb to the narratives there themselves”. A high-ranking spy officer conceded to the SZ: “Anyone who moves in a ‘closed worldview’ all day long must always work to keep their distance.”
The system’s ‘divide and conquer’ strategy
The fact that the “Alpine Pravda” as the SZ is known, is now coming out with this news, is presumably about possible coming unrest, because the system fears protests in autumn and a subsequent “winter of anger”. By spreading information about “countless spies”, they are trying to fuel a situation in which dissidents accuse each other of working for the state.
It is in essence a divide and rule strategy, an ancient principle of sowing distrust.
‘EU has instruments against right-wing parties’
In fact, EU Commission President Ursula von der Leyen (CDU) has confidently alluded to such “tools” that the EU has at its disposal. She spoke of certain measures against Italy in view of the possible victory of the right-wing parties in the parliamentary elections on Sunday. “We will see the result of the vote in Italy. If things go in a difficult direction, we have tools like in the case of Poland and Hungary,” she said.
Not only online infiltration, but rule-of-law mechanisms provide for money cuts for member states that violate “EU values”. Such proceedings have been under way against Hungary since April.
Von der Leyen’s comment met with outrage
The leader of the conservative-leaning Lega, Matteo Salvini, was outraged by the statement made by the Commission President. It was a “disgusting and arrogant threat” against his country. Von der Leyen represents all Europeans and is also paid by them. According to the Ansa news agency, the Lega MPs in the EU Parliament now want to have the statement checked. The CDU politician should apologize for making such threats, he said.
In recent polls, an alliance of Lega and the right-wing party Fratelli d’Italia is way ahead. The leader of the latter, Giorgia Meloni, is its lead candidate.
Von der Leyen threatens the Italians: “We will see the result of the vote in Italy. If things go in a difficult direction, we have tools, as in the case of Poland and Hungary.” A desperate attempt to influence the vote in Italy that runs towards the far right.

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.
