‘Refugees welcome – but only from the West!’
Another controversial message from Viktor Orbán: the Hungarian Prime Minister has now expressed concern about developments in Germany in an interview with the German-language Budapester Zeitung – and in this context expressly invited German citizens to emigrate to Hungary.

Orbán also took the opportunity to settle accounts with the established parties. Orbán was asked by the publisher and editor-in-chief of the Budapester Zeitung, Jan Mainka, whether the Hungarian government was aware of a migration movement from Germany and whether it was planning countermeasures.
Orbán surprised his audience with a frank reply: “On the contrary! We know about this development and encourage Germans and other Western Europeans to come to us. In the next 10 to 20 years, more and more western Europeans will come to us who prefer to live with us because Hungary is a safe, Christian and tradition-conscious country. We don’t think that’s bad, but rather extremely good and welcome. […] Western Europeans who want to live freely and in a different milieu than at home should move to us. We welcome them here with open arms. Hungary is a country where many more people could live than the number of people currently living here. We are happy when foreigners who like our way of thinking come to us.”
Mainka wanted to know whether this should be understood as “Refugees Welcome!” – the much-maligned slogan under former chancellor Angela Merkel in 2015 to open the borders to 2 million illegal foreigners. Orbán replied: “Yes, exactly!” But he quickly added: “But from the West! Western refugees welcome!”
In the further course of the conversation, the Hungarian head of government recalled that in European history it had always been beneficial for the receiving countries when immigrants came from the West. He spoke of the advantage of welcoming the French Huguenots in Germany and the Germans in Hungary.
Orbán made it clear that he “respected” Germany. But compared to Germany, Hungary is now “an island of peace and freedom”. In Germany, on the other hand, freedom to speak out has been completely censored. “There is currently a liberal hegemony – only one narrative has space in public. Anyone who deviates from this no longer exists for this public.”
Referring to a recent visit to Berlin, Orbán was amazed at some of the observations there. For example, he was surprised by the many armed security forces in front of synagogues. Once again it became clear to him “that Germany has become a multicultural society”.
The Hungarian Prime Minister did not hide his disillusionment with the established German parties, the SPD, CDU/CSU and the EPP group in the European Parliament. And he did not even bother to mention the Greens in his evaluation.
The SPD is “today the most hostile party in Europe”. And the previously conservative CDU – including the Bavarian CSU – is actually “a left-wing party”. He has no hope that the Union would ever again become a sensible, conservative party like it used to be under Helmut Kohl: “The CDU is going its own way, which is not ours.”
In the same vein, he said the CSU under Prime Minister Söder was also “difficult for us to understand”. And the EPP group in the EU Parliament (the association of European Christian Democrats) under its boss Manfred Weber (CSU) is even “doctrinaire left”.
Orbán took the opportunity to once again refuse any foreign interference in Hungarian affairs. “Outside powers kept coming and wanting to dictate how we should live. When something like this happens, resistance forms instinctively in the Hungarians,” he said.
“Today, the German left wants to dictate to us through the EU Parliament how we should live and think, about migration, about genderism, the nation, the family and so on. It’s none of your business – that’s our business!”

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.
Top Researchers Push Back Against Climate Lies."The correlation is as clear as day," explained the Israeli astrophysicist Nir Shaviv, who was hailed by the establishment, before his interview with Forbes was hastily deleted. What he says contradicts the climate narrative, which points to humans as responsible for Earth's climate. Shaviv firmly asserts that it is the sun that controls the climate, something that can be scientifically proven in many ways. Contrary to the popular belief, the sun's influence on Earth has, in recent years, caused unusually cold and rainy weather, a trend that solar researchers warn will worsen significantly in the coming decades. The sun has exhibited an unusually low activity since 2016, during Solar Cycle 24, which was the weakest in a century.
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."
What is happening in the Netherlands? It is often difficult to follow events in other countries, especially when distorted by system media.

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.
