German Politicians Cash in on the Corona Hijab

Never let a pandemic go to waste! It seems that German politicians in Angela Merkel’s party have been caught making money from the Corona mask business. Obviously, it’s just a coincidence that Mrs. Merkel’s government made masks mandatory…

Alice Weidel: Unreservedly and completely clear up mask scandals

Another member of the Union (CDU/CSU), this time from Baden-Württemberg, has received six-figure commissions for brokering purchases of corona masks, according to media reports. The group leader of the AfD in the German Bundestag Alice Weidel explains:

“Every new mask scandal is another blow to the credibility of the corona policy of this federal government. The damage is not repaired with unctuous circular letters and appeals. Now it must be fully clarified who in the governing parties has benefited from these and similar deals.

“In view of the lobbying work of a CSU team around MEP Monika Hohlmeier, who, according to media research, had campaigned for government contracts for questionable mask suppliers, the non-transparent procurement policy of the Federal Ministry of Health and the role of the responsible minister himself must also be examined.

“It is unacceptable for citizens to be harassed with barely comprehensible mask obligations, hunted down by law enforcement officers and subjected to stiff fines, while a few are enriched by the politically generated demand for masks. In German Corona policy, the return to honesty, reason and a sense of proportion is long overdue.”

Photo-journalist attacked in Reims: A suspect in custody for “aggravated attempted murder”

Anes Saïd K. (21) placed in provisional detention after having remained silent during his custody.

by Aude Bariéty
March 3, 2021

This Wednesday, 3 March, the Republic Prosecutor of Reims, Matthieu Bourrette, announced the indictment of the principal suspect in the attack on the photo-journalist Christian Lantenois. Anes Saïd K., an Algerian, 21, who has lived in Reims for three years, was charged with “aggravated attempted murder” and placed in provisional detention. He faces life imprisonment.

This ultra-violent attack took place Saturday, 27 February in the afternoon, in the space of 57 seconds, in a parking area of the library of the Croix Rouge quarter of Reims. Shortly after 3pm, while the photo-journalist of the Union-L’Ardennais was trying to take some photos of a group of youths who were obviously preparing to fight with other youths, he was spotted by several individuals.

Christian Lantenois then tried to get back into the passenger side of his vehicle, but didn’t have time. A youth rushed up to him, struck him with blows from a stick, then with his own camera. “A second individual was seen swinging a baton in the direction of the victim, but it appears that the blows struck the ground and not Christian Lantenois,” declared the prosecutor during a press conference.

Attacked because of his profession

“It is obvious that the presence of Christian Lantenois embarrassed the individuals who were preparing to commit violence, and that he was attacked as he was exercising his profession as a photo-journalist, and for this reason,” emphasized Matthieu Bourrette, all while noting that “this element is not an aggravating circumstance on a strictly legal level.”

“It is probable that the group of individuals who spotted him wanted not only to attack him, but also to recover the memory card of his camera and the photos taken,” continued the magistrate. After the events, the camera was recovered without its memory card.

The personnel at the library came to the assistance of the wounded man before emergency personnel arrived at the scene at about 3:30. The 60+-year-old man was treated at the scene for an hour and a half before being transported to the CHU. His vital prognosis is today still engaged (urgent/unstable). Placed in an artificial coma, he suffers notably from very severe cranial trauma and cerebral hemorrhaging.

The 21-year-old man suspected of beating the photo-journalist was identified and apprehended on Monday, March 1, “on the public highway”. Placed in custody, Anes Saïd K. maintained “complete silence”. “No hearing could be held,” explained the prosecutor, who described, “a rather irritated individual.”

German Professor Invents New Antigen, Threatens the Vax Narrative, Gets Prosecuted

A German virological researcher named Professor Winfried Stöcker has invented a new vaccine which is proving safe and effective against COVID-19. Strictly speaking, it’s an antigen rather than a vaccine — a peptide that confers immunity against the coronavirus without the risks associated with the mRNA vaccines.

It’s no surprise that Prof. Stöcker has aroused the ire of the German medical bureaucracy, to the point where criminal proceedings have been initiated against him. His response is to make the process for manufacturing the new antigen public, without filing for a patent and without asking for payment.

Below is the statement issued by Prof. Stöcker, also translated by MissPiggy:

The Best Vaccine Against COVID-19

February 5, 2021

In the past, under my leadership, an extremely efficient research and development department was established at Euroimmun, dealing, among other things, with the diagnostics of infectious diseases. Our scientists were among the first to create reagents for the detection of a number of emerging infectious diseases, often in collaboration with specialists from international infectious disease research institutions, in Germany including the Bernhard Nocht Institute in Hamburg and the Robert Koch Institute in Berlin: Crimean-Congo, West Nile, Japanese Encephalitis, Usutu, Dengue, Chikungunya, Mayaro, MERS-Corona, Zika, SARS 1, Ebola.

Based on our extensive experience in reagent development for the diagnosis of novel viral diseases, we have rapidly and accurately created and recombinantly produced an antigen construct that can reliably produce antibodies against SARS-CoV-2. It is based on the receptor-binding domain within the S1 subunit of the spike protein, which the virus uses to bind to receptors on target cells. It seemed obvious to me that immunisation with this protein would have a protective effect.

There are vaccinations with a large potential danger and others with a very small one. There is a difference between injecting a healthy person with attenuated viruses or viral RNA, and injecting a small inconspicuous recombinant protein that cannot do much in the organism except for specific immune stimulation. For decades, recombinant antigens genetically engineered in culture cells have been used in immunisation against infectious hepatitis A and B. In the past, the immunisation antigen was obtained from blood donations of people formerly suffering from hepatitis, but the recombinant antigens come from the retort, they are easy to produce and carry no risk of infection — a major advance. I myself have immunised thousands of my employees with them. However, you have to take three injections in the first quarter of the year, then measure the antibody level every five to ten years and give a booster vaccination if necessary.

This uncomplicated vaccination scheme, which has been tried and tested for decades, with a trivial antigen that has long been available, would be the order of the day in the case of Covid-19. Completely new approaches are being pursued here, which may be very effective. These approaches introduce viral RNA into the body of the vaccinated person, which is supposed to synthesise the immunisation antigen in the person’s own organism first, but many people are afraid of this because they fear that the viral RNA will take on a life of its own in the body and cause unexpected damage. Lengthy vaccination studies have therefore had to be set up, during which the virus has been able to spread through the population like an avalanche. And the active ingredient is very difficult to produce, requires a continuous deep-freeze chain from production to vaccination, many people are allergic to the polyethylene glycol additive needed for stabilisation, and half of those vaccinated report sick after the second injection. Above all, however, it takes years to manufacture the vaccine until demand is met and everyone is immunised. Scientists can make a name for themselves and the patent holders can make a lot of money, while millions of people die because they cannot be vaccinated in time.

Migrant-Rescue NGOs Being Prosecuted in Italy for Human Trafficking

As reported in recent news feed items, various NGOs are being prosecuted in Italy for people smuggling as a result of their work in the Mediterranean “rescuing” migrants. Prominent among these groups are several based in Germany.

Many thanks to Hellequin GB for translating this article from PolitikStube. The translator notes that the same legal system is prosecuting former Italian Interior Minister Matteo Salvini for “kidnapping” because he refused to give landing rights to the migrant “rescue” vessels when he was in government:

“Allegation of human smuggling”! Italy: Public prosecutor’s office charges German “sea rescuers”

The migrant ferry Iuventa from “Jugend rettet” was confiscated by the Italian authorities in August 2017 and has since been moored in the port of Trapani. The seizure marked the beginning of the investigation; the allegations concerned suspicious modalities of the rescue operations. After the investigation, the public prosecutor’s office in the Sicilian port city of Trapani brought charges of smuggling and aiding and abetting illegal immigration against 21 “sea rescuers” from the NGOs “Jugend rettet”, “Save the Children” and “Doctors Without Borders”. If convicted, they face up to 20 years in prison. Ten of the accused are crew members from Iuventa, and are Germans.

As reported by ilgiornale.it , the Iuventa was one of the first ships to set sail for the central Mediterranean in 2016, and immigration reached worrying proportions during that time. In the summer of 2016, more than 20,000 migrants landed every month. Many of them had just been brought to Italy by NGOs. Rescue operations, which, according to Trapani investigators, were sometimes discussed directly with the traffickers.

The Vos Hestia and Vos Prudence, deployed by Save The Children and Doctors Without Borders respectively, would have participated in some of the suspected operations. That is the case of the operation on May 4, 2017: “After we learned of the departure of several boats in the afternoon — so states a document from the public prosecutor, which is reported in the Repubblica — the ship is heading for a certain section of the sea, without giving any notice to the relevant authorities.” Then, at 6:45 am the next day, 548 migrants boarded the Vos Hestia.

Then there is another mission, that of May 22nd, during which the lights on the ship’s deck remained on, a circumstance that is prohibited under the 2015 Self-Regulation Code. On this occasion, 120 migrants came on board. Instead, on June 26, 1,066 people were loaded on board in six hours. Among them, the judges said, the smugglers were found to be present. Those who stepped onto the deck of the ship were also forced to wear Save The Children life jackets, with the old jackets being returned to the traffickers.

On June 18 2017, the return of three small boats tied to the tugs with a rope by the Iuventa activists would have been documented in some of the photographs available to the public prosecutor. There were 264 migrants on board on this occasion.

In addition to interception measures and expert reports on the instruments on board the ships concerned, the investigations also made use of the activities of an undercover investigator on board the Vos Hestia.

No Terror in Vetlanda, Just Allahu Akhbar

I reported yesterday that Swedish police have backtracked on their original announcement of a terror investigation into Wednesday’s knife rampage by an Afghan culture-enricher in Vetlanda.

Well… It may or may not have been “terror”, but witnesses say Allah was invoked by the misguided “youth” with the knife.

Lamotte: Tamim Sultani screamed “Allahu Akhbar” during attack in Vetlanda

March 5, 2021

During Wednesday’s knife attack against 7 persons in Vetlanda (Småland), perpetrator Tamim Sultani, 22, screamed the Muslim battle cry “Allahu Akhbar” while he stabbed his victims. This is what sources told the citizen-journalist Joakim Lamotte.

Lamotte has interviewed one of the persons who were stabbed in Vetlanda. According to Lamotte, this is a man who wants to be anonymous, and he says he is now afraid to be outdoors.

“The man also describes in detail the course of events when he was attacked, and that what he remembers most clearly is that Tamim Sultani screamed ‘Allahu Akhbar’ before he stabbed him,” writes Lamotte on Facebook, and he continues:

“The man I interviewed now wonders why it is not being investigated as a terror crime even though Tamim Sultani screamed ‘Allahu Akhbar’ before he stabbed people with a knife. The man also says he has difficulty talking about what happened, but he still wants me to publicize his account so the truth will come out.”

Fria Tider revealed on Thursday that Tamim Sultani had been granted a residency permit in Sweden through the so-called “high school amnesty,” a set of rules that makes it possible for unaccompanied young men from Afghanistan to stay in Sweden despite not having grounds for asylum, so long as they choose to attend high school.

It’s a Taboo: German ICUs Are Being Overwhelmed by Culture-Enrichers

The following translations (all done in a mammoth effort, in record time, by MissPiggy) concern an exposé published by the German tabloid Bild showing that the government was aware that intensive care units in hospitals were overwhelmingly inhabited by migrants, did nothing to address the issue, and covered up the news about it.

The report has caused shockwaves to spread through the alternative media in Germany. (I haven’t heard of any other MSM outlets following Bild’s lead on it.)

First, a summary of what happened from Politically Incorrect:

Are the Coercive Corona Measures “Thanks” to the Failed Integration Policy?

The COVID Taboo: 90% of ventilator patients have a migration background

[Photo caption: It is mainly migrants who are in intensive care units during the corona crisis]

by the Analyst

THE BILD newspaper is unrecognisable. For quite some time now, the flagship of the mainstream press has been doing exactly what its job is supposed to be: exposing grievances and criticising the accompanying government actions. A brand-new article, which is unfortunately only accessible behind a paywall, proves that THE BILD newspaper dares to touch the very hot poker concerning facts that are taboo in our country.

In the article the reader learns about a conversation that the head of the Robert Koch Institute, Professor Lothar Wieler, recently had with a group of chief physicians. The subject: MD Thomas Voshaar, the chief physician of the lung clinic in the Bethanien hospital in Moers, arranged an internal evaluation of the months between November and December 2020, as well as the beginning of January 2021. This showed that more than 90 percent of the intubated, critically ill Corona patients in the intensive care units had a migration background. Internally, it was agreed to refer to these patients as “patients with a communication barrier”.

The head of the RKI already knew about it

Prof. Wieler was already aware of this problem beforehand. He commented:

“I heard the same thing, but it’s a taboo. I have tried to approach certain people. We have to reach out to this religious group through imams. The whole thing has huge implications for Berlin. It’s a real problem.”

“Oh God, Oh God, Oh God.”

So obviously it is mainly Muslims who cannot be reached because of the “communication barrier”. The head of the RKI calls a spade a spade and the BILD prints it. Respect.

Moreover, Wieler speaks of parallel societies in the middle of our country, four million people who cannot be reached. The RKI boss literally says: “And that’s crap.” Although this group makes up only 4.8% of the population, it represents 50% of the patients in intensive care units.

MD Thomas Voshaar informed Federal Minister of Health Jens Spahn about the facts. Voshaar to BILD:

“Everyone I’ve spoken to, up to and including Mr. Spahn, has said “Oh God, oh God, oh God.”

However, as the BILD has learned from a government spokesman, Spahn did not find it necessary to pass on this information to the Chancellor’s Office. Consequently, it was never an issue at the chancellor’s Corona summits with the governors of the states. “O God, oh God, oh God”, is also the answer concerning the politics during this pressing crisis.

Lockdown due to “patients with communication barriers”?

Keep in mind that the compulsory Corona measures are imposed ostensibly to avoid overcrowding in intensive care units. So now we learn by mistake that migrants predominantly occupy intensive care units due to COVID, because the government is unable to make it clear to them how they should behave. It is euphemistically called a “communication barrier”.

A better expression would be: “Disastrously failed integration policy,” the results of which — as we now know — significantly lead to the fact that we have been locked up, businesses have gone bankrupt and our senior citizens have died of loneliness in nursing homes.

Nothing to See Here, Move Along

As reported here on Wednesday, an Afghan culture-enricher went on a stabbing rampage in the Swedish town of Vetlanda. Eight people were reported injured in the attack, but the number was later reduced to seven. Police were investigating the incident as an act of terrorism.

Yesterday the police changed their minds and said they no longer considered the attack to be terrorism. After the Sweden Democrats (Sverigedemokraterna) called for an end to mass immigration, Prime Minister Stefan Löfven retorted that the knife rampage had nothing to do with immigration.

So what did it have to do with, then? A later report (hat tip Steen) said that the attacker was alleged to have shouted “Allahu Akhbar” during his stabbing spree. As we all know by now, the phrase means “I feel marginalized and discriminated against” in Arabic.

Many thanks to Gary Fouse for translating two additional articles about the knife jihad in Vetlanda. First, from Fria Tider, Prime Minister Stefan Löfven’s remarks on the irrelevance of immigration to the terror attack in Vetlanda:

Löfven on the Vetlanda act — Has nothing to do with immigration

March 4, 2021

The 22-year-old Afghan high-school student’s attack in Vetlanda is not “a migration issue”. That is the message of Prime Minister Stefan Löfven (S/Social Democrats) now.

Seven persons were injured when they were attacked by the 22-year-old Afghan in Vetlanda on Wednesday.

Earlier today, Fria Tider was able to report that the Afghan is an illiterate who was granted a residence permit with the support of Stefan Löfven’s so-called high school act.

At a press conference, a journalist mentioned that the Sweden Democrats on Twitter had linked the incident with immigration policy and demanded a “complete stop to all asylum-and family immigration, including quota refugees.” The journalist asked what Löfven thought about it.

“That the Sweden Democrats are out speculating is on them. We don’t do that. We will await the police investigation and listen to what emerges as to motive and everything else,” answered Löfven.

He continued:

“Since this is not a migration issue, as the Sweden Democrats want it to be.”

Also from Fria Tider, an excerpt from an article about the lack of connection with terrorism:

Gran Canaria: Gang rape of a 36-year-old woman — four North Africans arrested

In the town of Puerto Rico on Gran Canaria, part of the municipality of Mogán, the handcuffs clicked on four migrants yesterday. The men of Maghrebian origin are accused of raping a 36-year-old woman in a local park on Friday.

As reported by La Provincia, the victim is an Irish national who has lived with her family in the community for years. After the incident, the woman first went to a health center and filed a complaint with the doctor’s report on Sunday.

Thanks to a good personal description, all four men who recently came illegally on a boat to Gran Canaria were arrested yesterday on Monday. They previously lived in tourist facilities in the municipalities of San Bartolomé de Tirajana and Mogán but were expelled from there. One of them was no stranger to the officials. He has already had several relevant criminal records.
