Human traffickers shoot at Hungarian police during highway chase
To keep illegals flooding into the EU, human traffickers are now willing to accept the deaths of police officers. During a chase on the Hungarian highway, alleged Iraqi traffickers opened fire at the police. In the end, the traffickers could only be arrested and disarmed by a counter-terrorism unit.

The Austrian outlet eXXpress reported on the police operation.
Drivers who were driving on M1 highway towards Budapest on Monday morning must have literally felt like they were the real actors in the wrong violent action movie. What unsuspecting motorists experienced was not the usual traffic. It became a life-threatening journey instead.
Hungarian police on Wednesday released on-board camera footage of the patrol car chasing a van carrying two Iraqi smugglers and 21 migrants on the M1 highway. During the chase, shots were fired from the van at the moving police car.
The shooting continued even when the smugglers had to jump out of the van to escape because of a traffic jam: While trying to escape, they kept shooting at the police car. Counter-terrorism forces eventually arrested the two men posing as Iraqi citizens.
The Hungarian police had their hands full
The increasing violence by migrants and people smugglers poses a serious threat to Hungary’s internal security, Prime Minister Viktor Orbán’s chief adviser for internal security, György Bakondi, told Hungarian state television last week.
Bakondi pointed out that the Hungarian border guards had already picked up 244 000 cross-border entrants this year. In 2021 there were 105 000 in the same period. According to Bakondi, the figures clearly show that the pressure to migrate is increasing.
Orbán’s security adviser pointed out that Hungary had massively strengthened border protection this year. This is all the more necessary as the border police are increasingly being attacked by groups of migrants.
A recent study by the Hungarian Migration Research Institute confirmed Bakondi’s statements. According to the institute, attacks by human traffickers on the border police are increasing – and not just on the border, but also in the interior. Security expert József Horváth told the Magyar Nemzet newspaper that smugglers were under increasing “pressure to perform”, leading criminals to become more militant and violent.
Talks with Serbia and Austria
In October the Hungarian Prime Minister started a series of talks with the Austrian Chancellor and the Serbian President at the Castle Garden Bazaar in Budapest on illegal immigration.
The leaders of the three countries were being affected by it in the most severe possible way, according to Orbán: “We all three are suffering from illegal migration.” He observed that this absorbed much energy and live force as well as enormous amounts of money.
Hungary initiated this meeting “because we are in the most complex situation,” given that the country has a migration problem from two directions. In consequence of the Russo-Ukrainian war, more than a million refugees have arrived from the easterly direction, from Ukraine, and meanwhile the borders are also “under permanent siege” from the south, he said.
“We see no change in the Brussels policy that encourages migration, the re-distribution quotas are placed on the agenda time and again,” he added.

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.
