Investigation launched into Ursula von der Leyen’s vaccine procurement

The EU's multi-billion dollar Corona "vaccine" purchases, which were sealed by the EU Commission under the leadership of the Germans, have come under the scrutiny of the European Public Prosecutor's Office.

    German daily BILD Aktuell reported that “the European Public Prosecutor’s Office confirmed that it was investigating the purchase of Covid-19 vaccines in the European Union”. The authority announced this on Friday. This probe is “due to the extremely high level of public interest”.

    During the “pandemic”, the EU Commission negotiated and concluded contracts worth hundreds of millions of vaccine doses on behalf of the member states. This was led by Ursula von der Leyen, who has been President of the Commission since December 1, 2019. “The procedure was repeatedly criticized because the contracts were only partially made public or because there were delays in the delivery of the vaccine,” according to the daily.

    A deal for up to 1,8 billion doses from Biontech/Pfizer from spring 2021 was criticized in particular. The contract volume was estimated at 35 billion euros at the time. And as the New York Times reported, the personal contact between EU boss Ursula von der Leyen (64) and Pfizer boss Albert Bourla (60) was decisive for the deal. They are also said to have exchanged text messages.

    The EU Commission has refused to give journalists access to the text messages in question. According to a September report, the authority did not provide the European Court of Auditors with the requested information about the transaction. The European Ombudsman Emily O’Reilly sharply criticized the actions of the EU Commission.

    This week, MEP Mislav Kolakušić also questioned the EU Commission’s vaccine deals and said that “the purchase of 4,5 billion vaccine doses for 450 million EU citizens is the biggest corruption scandal in human history”. It suggests that even “every child in the EU should be given ten doses of something whose effectiveness and safety has not been proven”.

    This is not Von der Leyen’s first scandal. The French newspaper Le Monde reported already in 2019: “Three weeks after taking office as President of the European Commission, Ursula von der Leyen was caught up in an affair that had severely weakened her during her last year at the German Ministry of Defense.

    “The parliamentary commission of inquiry created in Germany to shed light on the conditions under which her ministry used highly paid external consultants, learned on Thursday, December 19, that the data on Ursula von der Leyen’s former cell phone had been deleted – the members of the commission wanted to consult them as part of their investigation.”

    FREEZING IN THEIR HOMES is the new grim reality for many Brits and Northern Europeans. Margaret is 92 years old and has just come in from the winter cold, but no warmth awaits her at home. She fears her own home more than the icy streets. Next to her are four thick blankets, and on the shelf above the fireplace, which she can no longer afford to buy wood for, is a meter showing the daily cost of electricity (inset). It shows £1.03, about 13 SEK. When it reaches £3, about 38 SEK, she is forced to turn off the little heat she has to afford it. Still image: ITW News

    Brits Forced to Live in Darkness and Cold

    Food prices are rising at a furious pace, fastest in Scotland in almost half a century. At the same time, energy prices are at record highs. People are forced to choose between freezing or going hungry, and a majority of Scots are forced to live in cold and darkness to cope with bills. Old generations' tricks for saving and keeping warm are returning. Nevertheless, it is feared that 10,000 Brits will die of cold homes this winter. We present the Swedish Public Health Agency's guidelines on indoor temperature. Governments in Europe are introducing rationing and monitoring of food purchases. Net-zero emissions are a lie that, in practice, de-industrializes the West and dramatically lowers our standard of living.
