Calls for altmedia to be demonetized from an unelected free-speech fiend
The EU Commission, elected by no one, currently consists of a President, three Executive Vice-Presidents, a High Representative (Josep Borrell), four other Vice-Presidents (one Vice-President resigned because she is in prison) and 17 other commissioners plus a commissioner-designate.

One of the vice-presidents is the Czech extreme left politician Vèra Jourovà. She of all people was given the post of EU Commissioner for “Values and Transparency”. In the recent past, she has become known above all for her striking hatred of Hungary and everything Hungarian.
In September 2020, she described Hungary as a “sick democracy”. Hungary did not put up with this and demanded the replacement of the Vice President and ended bilateral relations.
The Süddeutsche Zeitung wrote at the time that Hungary’s Prime Minister Viktor Orbán had demanded the resignation of Vice-President of the European Commission, Vera Jourová. “By calling Hungary a ‘sick democracy’, the Vice-President of the Commission insulted Hungary and the Hungarian people,” wrote the right-wing politician in a letter to the President of the European Commission, Ursula von der Leyen.
His country has therefore “suspended bilateral relations with the Vice President of the Commission,” Orbán added, according to a report by the state news agency MTI. Her removal from office was “essential and necessary”.
Vera Jourová has not resigned. Instead, she took part in this year’s World Economic Forum (WEF) in Davos. There she behaved like a megalomaniac. In all seriousness, she demanded that all alternative media worldwide (!) be demonetized and thus be robbed of their economic foundations. This is the preliminary stage to the final ban. Greetings from the USSR.
According to Report24, an Austrian portal, only altmedia offered reality-based insights. “It was above all the alternative and free media that repeatedly pointed to critical insights, while the mainstream remained well-behaved and obedient to the government line. This could also be described as a total failure of the so-called ‘fourth estate’.
But this failure of the corporate and state media is to be rewarded by politicians by wanting to finally turn off the money supply (namely financing via advertising) to the free alternatives.”
It stated further:
“‘The European advertising industry […] has confirmed that it will not monetize or support those who spread disinformation,’ Jourová proudly declared. And this despite the fact that the alleged ‘disinformation’ of the alternative and free media has proven to be correct and true time and again in recent times, while the mainstreamers were those who only followed the narratives of the elites over and over again and became disinformation peddlers themselves. Censorship still takes place in Europe today – just enforced by other means.”
So let’s summarize: Jourovà wants to pull the plug on all media that do not spread government propaganda, i.e. that in their opinion engage in “hate speech” and “disinformation”. It is precisely the pro-government media that have failed completely in recent years by spreading lies.
Just think of the Covid19 reporting, false reports about mRNA gene injections, ignoring the Hunter Biden laptop story, the Twitter files, the Relotius fairy tales, the Great Reset of the WEF, etc. According to Jourovà, “false opinions” will no longer be censored in the future, but may not appear in the first place. The authors should know they must shut up!
She obviously does not realize that her plan violates the First Amendment to the US Constitution.
The EU Commission is more like a criminal network that wants to order us all to remain silent, like with the mafia the law of “omerta”.
The example of Maria, the chic influencer who invented the refugee drama, is a case in point regarding mainstream fables we are supposed to swallow.
A desperate Syrian woman fleeing to Greece, and according to Spiegel itself, her tale about the deceased refugee girl Maria was probably fictitious. It turns out this Syrian is actually a cosmopolitan influencer.
The latest embarrassment after the Relotius scandal, is that the German magazine had to remove three articles and a podcast about the deceased refugee girl Maria from its website in November. The tragic story in the Turkish-Greek border area made international headlines in August, but it probably never happened because the five-year-old refugee girl does not exist.
It turns out that the German news magazine apparently continues to deceive the public. Baidaa S., the 27-year-old Syrian told journalists a made-up story. Although this young woman actually exists, she was presented to the public as the desperate spokeswoman for a group of 38 refugees, including Maria, who were themselves fleeing.
However, according to the latest findings, it seems doubtful that Baidaa had to flee to Germany at all. On her social media channels (all of which have been blocked in the meantime) she has been posting lovely pictures from all over the world. She was seen particularly often in Istanbul and Germany, always well dressed and with make-up on, and certainly not with swollen eyes, as in Spiegel. The contrast could hardly be more stark. Baidaa is now emerging as a cosmopolitan influencer who has already written six books.
The Neue Zürcher Zeitung uncovered the scam. It took screenshots of the influencer’s Instagram and Tiktok accounts, which are no longer publicly accessible. “In March 2021, for example, she published a picture on Instagram of a woman holding a coffee cup and reading a book, her legs covered with a fluffy fabric. ‘Germany’ is given as the location,” according to the NZZ.
The Swiss daily mauled its German colleagues. “Spiegel is launching a campaign […] which is presumably based on fake news and the staging of a young woman. Instead of honestly coming to terms with its own failure, it continues to deceive the public to this day.” The NZZ added: “Are the creators of the leading medium with the highest circulation and most frequently cited in Germany just naive – or are they intentionally hiding the fact that they have been taken in by a witness who is more imaginative than trustworthy?”
Shortly after her arrival in Greece, Baidaa suddenly disappeared. The NZZ was however able to locate her apartment. The native Syrian carefully opened the apartment door: “No, she no longer wants to talk about the island and about Greece.” Quite unsurprisingly, Baidaa is suddenly no longer interested in talking to (real) journalists.

Yes, prices are rising, but not for the reasons the Federal Reserve says. When I say inflation is a hoax, I mean the purported cause is a hoax. The Fed is fighting a consumer inflation, a “demand-pull” inflation. But what we are experiencing is a supply-side inflation caused by the Covid lockdowns and economic sanctions that closed businesses, disrupted supply chains, and broke business relationships while reducing energy supplies to the UK and European countries, thus forcing up costs in a globalized economy.
