“There is No Good News Across This Report” — A Shocked Wall Street Reacts to Today’s Scorching CPI Print

As we noted in our preview last night, so confident was Wall Street that today’s CPI print would be a miss — driven ostensibly by a plunge in energy prices — that the Y/Y whisper dropped as low as mid/sub 7%, with Goldman saying the “Headline number most likely shows some disinflation and wont impact mkt meaningfully after tape’s recent run higher, unless shockingly cool…call it sub 7%…then keep your rally caps on“ and JPM piling on that “a 7-handle CPI YoY we would likely to see a strong rally tomorrow.

In retrospect, pretty much everyone was wrong, with headline CPI coming in at a “shocking”, red hot 8.3%…

[…] a number which 47 of 50 economists missed, and which just BMO (and two other smallish banks, SMBC Nikko and Berliner Sparkasse) predicted correctly.

Danish Inflation Hits Four-Decade High as Food, Energy Prices Go Through the Roof

Denmark’s inflation rate reached its highest level in nearly four decades amid a rise in food and energy prices that threatens to halt economic growth in the Nordic country.

In August, the consumer price index soared 8.9% from last year, which is the fastest pace since 1983, Statistics Denmark said. In July, the price index rose 8.7 percent.

According to Sydbank senior economist Mathias Dollerup Sproegel, who called inflation “the Achilles’ heel in both the Danish and the European economy,” given the current price level, an average Danish family will have to spend an extra 40,000 DKK ($5,400) per year on consumer goods, compared with 2021.

European Food Industry Warns: ‘No Energy Means No Food’

The European food industry is sounding the alarm. In a recent statement, companies in the European agri-food industry warn of plant closures and supply bottlenecks as a result of the energy crisis.

In the joint statement released on Thursday, FoodDrinkEurope, the EU’s farmers’ association COPA-COGECA and the EU’s primary food processors’ association warned that some companies could soon shut down production. The first to be affected are small and medium-sized businesses, especially those in energy-intensive sectors such as bakery, vegetable processing and dairy.

A Summary of the Peiter “Mudge” Zatko, Twitter Whistleblower, Hearing

During a Senate Judiciary Committee hearing titled “Data Security at Risk: Testimony from a Twitter Whistleblower,” famed ethical hacker and former head of Twitter security Peiter “Mudge” Zatko answered questions on the trove of alleged Twitter security vulnerabilities that were made public in a whistleblower disclosure last month.

In the disclosure, Mudge, who worked at Twitter from November 16, 2020 till January 19, 2022, suggested that Twitter had been penetrated by foreign intelligence agencies multiple times, accused Twitter employees of repeatedly installing spyware on their work computers at the request of external organizations, and alleged that around half of Twitter’s employees were given access to sensitive data.

Blood-Covered Man Walks Into Davenport Publix After Stabbing 2 People: Deputies

DAVENPORT, Fla. (WFLA) — A Davenport man was arrested early Tuesday morning after stabbing two people after a party, according to Polk County deputies.

The Polk County Sheriff’s Office said it all began at a birthday party celebration Monday night at an apartment on Charo Parkway when suspect Derrick Charles Emery, 32, left the party with two other people.

According to the arrest report, Emery was very intoxicated so the host of the party decided Emery should go home. Meanwhile, his fianceé stayed behind.

Two people, identified as Victims 1 and 2, volunteered to take him home. The sheriff’s office said Victim 1 knew Emery since they were in high school while Victim 2 had just met him.

The arrest report said during the walk home, Emery pulled out a pocket knife and stabbed the two victims for no reason. He then yelled ‘F— you’ to the victims while they made their way back to the apartment to get help.

Deputies said victim 2 had been stabbed in the neck, chest, and left forearm while victim 1 was stabbed in the chest and arm. Both were able to be treated and stabilized without surgery.

The sheriff’s office said Emery told deputies that he admitted to being at the party and being intoxicated.

Emery said that during the walk home, the two victims became “plain” with him, meaning that he was “done and would not be coming back.”

According to the suspect, he believed the victims were going to hurt or kill him, but the sheriff’s office said the victims never threatened him.

“At some point he was reaching into his fanny pack for his phone, however, for reasons unknown to him, he reached into the compartment where his pocket knife was, and before he knew it, he was stabbing the two subjects,” the arrest report said.

Emery said the ordeal was a “blur.” Deputies said the suspect eventually walked into a Publix, still wielding the knife with blood on his shirt, and asked management for help.

Emery was arrested on a charge of attempted second-degree murder.

Democrat-Run Tourist Town in North Carolina Sees Violent Crime Spike as Police Dwindle: ‘Perfect Storm’

Asheville, North Carolina — Multiple local law enforcement sources who spoke to Fox News Digital laid partial blame for the deteriorating condition of a North Carolina tourist town on the city’s liberal political leadership and on left-wing activists who undermine police.

“I think what you’re seeing in Asheville right now is a culmination of the last several years of pulling police back and not letting them do their jobs like they’re able to do,” former Buncombe County Sheriff Van Duncan told Fox News Digital in a phone interview.

Asheville, a city of approximately 90,000 people nestled in the Blue Ridge Mountains of Buncombe County, North Carolina, has seen a 31% surge in violent crime per 100,000 people from 2016 to 2020, according to statistics released in the spring. Asheville’s growth in violent crime is nearly double that of the national average and ranks among the highest in North Carolina, where violent crime has increased 13% statewide.

DHS Chief Says Biggest Terror Threat is Americans Radicalized by ‘Online Narratives’

The demonization of Americans continued on the anniversary of 9/11, when DHS chief Alejandro Mayorkas suggested the biggest terror threat was ‘domestic extremists’ radicalized by “false narratives propagated on online platforms.”

The Homeland Security Secretary made the comments during an appearance on MSNBC.

Speaking from ground zero in New York, Mayorkas said “the threat landscape has evolved considerably over the last 20 years,” and that foreign terrorism has now taken a back seat to domestic extremism.

And that it’s over.

Well, US Department of Homeland Security (DHS) Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas doesn’t seem to be on board with such “ideations” of a return to the normal.

Durham Shocker: Steele Dossier Primary Source Was Paid FBI Informant

Authored by Techno Fog via The Reactionary

Today, Special Counsel John Durham moved to unseal this motion in limine in the false statements case against Igor Danchenko.

This motion provides new information on the details of Danchenko’s lies to the FBI, further information on how Special Counsel Mueller ignored Danchenko’s false statements, expected testimony from Clinton-connected executive Charles Dolan, and one crazy development.

But we’ll start with the the most damning development: Danchenko [ZH: introduced to Steele in 2010 by none other than Russiagate impeachment witness Fiona Hill] was on the FBI payroll as a confidential human source from March 2017 through October 2020.

Father Shoots Family, Killing Wife; Daughter Blames QAnon

WALLED LAKE, Mich. (WXYZ) — Police in Michigan say a man opened fire on his family, killing his wife and injuring one of his daughters. His other daughter says he was spiraling out of control before the shootings, blaming it on Qanon.

Rebecca Lanis, 21, says her grandmother called her Sunday morning, asking if she was at the hospital. At a friend’s sleepover and unaware of the tragedy that had just unfolded at her home, she found that a strange question.

But she soon learned that early that morning, her father, 52-year-old Igor Lanis, had shot and killed her 56-year-old mother and critically injured her 25-year-old sister, Rachel Lanis.

The sheriff’s department says Igor Lanis also killed the family dog.

“It was like I was in a movie or nightmare or something. How could this happen to me?” Rebecca Lanis said. “I had a really close bond with my mom, and I just can’t believe that she’s not here.”

The Oakland County Sheriff’s Office says when officers responded to the family’s home in Walled Lake, Igor Lanis opened fire on them. A Walled Lake police officer and an Oakland County deputy returned fire, killing the man.

Rebecca Lanis says her father had never been physically violent, but his behavior started spiraling about two years ago after former President Donald Trump lost the 2020 presidential election.

FBI Shows Up on Trump Supporter’s Doorstep, and She Wasn’t Even at the Capitol on Jan. 6

If you thought it was bad enough that any Trump supporter near the Capitol on Jan. 6, 2021, might expect the FBI to come knocking at his door, the situation is a lot worse than you think. And I’m not just talking about the unprecedented raid on Mar-a-Lago.

The Biden administration is going far beyond that.

According to recent reports, the FBI has been conducting raids on Trump allies, executing search warrants on their homes, and issuing subpoenas to individuals as part of a pressure campaign.

But, now it looks like they’re not limiting themselves to Trump allies, but they’re even targeting Trump supporters who did nothing wrong.

Lisa Gallagher, a Trump voter in New Jersey, has come forward with the claim that the FBI visited her home the morning after Joe Biden’s fascistic speech at Independence Hall in which he declared Trump supporters to be enemies of our democracy.

Gallagher didn’t work in the Trump White House, nor was she present at the Capitol riot, yet she somehow ended up in the Biden administration’s crosshairs. She told her story to Tucker Carlson on Monday evening.

Judge Allows PETA Lawsuit to Proceed Against Texas A&M University After Comments Were Blocked on Social Media

Is there really much doubt about what the policy must be, when it comes to US government and entities falling in the same “speech category” — like public colleges — and their actions leading to “moderating” content to suit their subjective preference/interest, against the freedom of speech test?

Nevertheless, there has been so much legal and political gray area recently on the baseline question of what is, and isn’t, public in the new digital public square of the internet age of massive monopolies.

But when it comes to Texas A&M University (TAMU), a public research university, there really should be no such qualms.

In the case of the animal rights group PETA v. Texas A&M University, it still happened. The university’s medical experiments involve dogs. And that is something that PETA, given its nature, strongly objects to.

Meta Wants Its Competitors to Hand Over Sensitive Data, to “Prove” It’s Not a Monopoly

To defend an antitrust lawsuit filed by the Federal Trade Commission (FTC), Meta has made a brazen choice to subpoena 132 companies for competitively sensitive information.

FTC filed the antitrust lawsuit in 2020, accusing Meta, then Facebook, of monopolizing the social networking market, through the acquisitions of WhatsApp and Instagram. Meta claims it does not have a monopoly over the market, citing the success of Clubhouse and TikTok.

Soros-Backed DA Gives Texas Man 10 Days in Jail for DUI Crash That Killed Passenger

A man who pleaded guilty to driving drunk in a crash that killed his female passenger was sentenced to 10 days in jail in Austin, Texas by a district attorney’s office led by a George Soros style prosecutor which has drawn criticism from law enforcement.

Leo Anthony Carreto-Lopez, 19, was originally charged with intoxication manslaughter in May after drunk driving at a high speed before crashing into a tree in a fiery accident that killed his 19-year-old passenger Teresa Gonzales.

Court records reviewed by Fox News Digital show that the office of Travis County District Attorney Jose Garza negotiated a plea deal with Lopez that sentenced him to a misdemeanor and 10 days in jail in a move that has drawn criticism from law enforcement.

CBC in Lockstep With Liberal Attacks on Poilievre

After a landslide victory for Pierre Poilievre, the CBC and the Trudeau Liberals are in lockstep with their attacks that the new Conservative leader is “divisive.”

“You’re either with him or against him,” reads one headline by Aaron Wherry, a pollster for the state broadcaster.

Wherry framed Poilievre as being “resentment-driven” and divisive while citing the new leader’s criticism of mainstream media’s biased coverage favouring Justin Trudeau. Poilievre’s criticism of the legacy media extends to the CBC, which he promised to defund in campaign rallies across the country.

In a July document published by the EU Commission, Hahn wrote in a note to other commissioners that a “70 percent suspension of commitment” from the current EU budget would be a proportionate response by Brussels should significant changes not materialize after talks between the commission and Viktor Orban’s administration.

Estonia Parks Climate Ambitions to U-Turn on Shale Oil Extraction

Estonian Prime Minister Kaja Kallas’ government, trapped by its own total ban on Russian energy, has decided to return to oil shale.

“In extraordinary circumstances, extraordinary measures must be taken. Fortunately, we have an alternative solution,” said Economy Minister Riina Sikkut.

The union representing oil shale workers was most pleased with the news. As part of the green program pushed by the climate-championing government, huge layoffs within the industry had already begun: 1,700 of the 6,500 workers had been dismissed, and the downsizing would have continued if the war had not intervened. However, since February, 500 people have already been put back to work, so from their point of view, the sudden change in climate policy came at the best time.

Greek Coast Guard Opens Fire on Turkish Vessel

A Turkish cargo vessel had a run-in with a Greek coast guard patrol off Turkey’s Aeagean coast on Saturday, with the two nations providing conflicting accounts of the incident.

The Comoros-flagged ro-ro vessel ‘Anatolian’ sustained minor damage from Greek small arms fire, according to the Turkish side. The Greek coastguard, however, insists that only warning shots were fired at the vessel.

Turkish media circulated video footage of the incident, captured by the crew of the ‘Anatolian’. It shows a Greek coast guard boat sailing alongside the ro-ro vessel. The video also shows several bullet holes in the windows and walls of the vessel’s superstructure, purportedly left as the result of Greek small arms fire.

Meloni: The European Left Branded Poland and Hungary as the ‘Bad Guys of Europe’

By attacking Poland and Hungary, the Italian left is diverting attention from the most urgent problems in the European Union, said Giorgia Meloni, president of the conservative Brothers of Italy party (FdI), who made the comments while debating with her number one political rival, Enrico Letta, secretary general of the Democratic Party (PD), on the Corriere della Sera internet television channel on Monday.

Regarding the European Union, Giorgia Meloni believes that anyone who tries to formulate constructive criticism will immediately be called a sovereignist and anti-European. However, recent years have pointed out the weak points of the EU, first with the coronavirus epidemic and then as a result of the shock caused by the war in Ukraine. Meloni said that the EU should deal with the really important issues, as Europe is currently a “political dwarf and bureaucratic giant,” while it should be the other way around.

Not Everyone Who Protests Against the Czech Government is an Extremist or Russophile, Says Favorite to Win Presidential Election

After 70,000 people protested against the Czech government last Saturday over the government’s stance on the Ukraine war and surging energy prices, Czech Prime Petr Fiala hit back by claiming those protesting were pro-Russian, going so far as to say there is a “fifth Russian column” in Czech society. Fiala’s claim has already been criticized by a number of politicians, with a former general, Petr Pavel, also now coming out against Fiala’s remarks.

Pavel is a significant figure in the Czech political scene, and polling shows him winning the presidential election, which is set to take place in January 2023.

Poland Has to be Christian to Survive, Says Education Minister

Poland’s conservative Education Minister Przemyslaw Czarnek has claimed that “all the unhappiness in the world can be traced to a failure to observe the Lord’s commands.”

Speaking at a religious pilgrimage for men, he also said that “man cannot be understood without Christ and that to be a believer means one must be loyal to God and country.”

Czarnek added Poles must be prepared to put up a fight against atheism. “If we don’t want to be Western in the sense of cultural decadence and hostility to religion, we have to be ready to act as counterrevolutionaries,” he told a Warsaw audience.

Poles Don’t Believe the Country’s WWII Reparations Claim Will be Successful

On Sept. 1, the anniversary of the start of World War II, a detailed report was presented by Poland as the basis of a claim for $1.3 trillion worth of reparations from Germany. It was announced that the Polish government would now pursue this claim through diplomatic efforts. Germany has claimed that Poland waived its rights to reparations in 1953.

Polish daily Rzeczpospolita commissioned SW Research to ask Poles to assess the chances of securing the reparations claim from Germany. The results of the research suggest that Poles are highly pessimistic about the chances of securing any pecuniary damages from the Germans.

‘Production in Germany is No Longer Competitive’ — CEO at World’s Largest Steel Manufacturer Warns of Crisis as Plants Shut Down

At ArcelorMittal’s steel plant at the port of Hamburg, workers are coordinating production to ensure it does not interfere with peak electrical loads — seen during the morning and evening — for residents in the city of Hamburg. The Hamburg steel plant consumes an enormous amount of energy. For example, in one of the smelters that makes crude iron, it uses 76,000 kilowatt-hours of electricity in just one hour, which is the equivalent of half a million televisions, according to German newspaper Die Welt.

“We have the gas needs of the city of Lübeck and the electricity needs of Kiel,” said Ansgar Jüchter, an engineer at the plant.

UK: Arrests of Protesters Prompt Free-Speech Concerns

The arrests of protesters after the death of Queen Elizabeth II are “deeply concerning”, free-speech campaigners have said.

Police in Scotland have charged two people, while a man was arrested and de-arrested in Oxford.

The arrests came at events to mark the Queen’s death and proclaim King Charles III Britain’s new monarch.

In London, as queues began for the lying in state, the Met Police said people “have a right to protest”.

US Nuclear Power Offer to Poland on the Table, But South Korea and France Are Still Contenders

Poland’s Climate Minister Anna Moskwa met with U.S. Ambassador to Poland Mark Brzezinski and the CEO of Westinghouse Poland on Monday in order to discuss the U.S. offer to build nuclear reactors in Poland.

The U.S. offer is for Westinghouse to build AP1000 type reactors, with the company already building four such reactors in China and two more in the United States. The proposal presented to the Polish government also includes the description of the strategic framework for U.S.-Polish cooperation on nuclear power. That document marks the fulfillment of the U.S.-Polish agreement on intergovernmental cooperation on nuclear power signed back in October 2020.

God of War: Artillery Once Again Rules the Battlefield

The war in Ukraine has now been going on for over six months with widespread destruction and death. It has not developed as either side believed or hoped for and has offered even military experts many surprises. Artillery—not air combat—rules the battlefield, countered primarily by spades and pickaxes. The Napoleonic Wars as well as the First World War come to mind. We demonstrate unknown power ratios and indicate four weapon types that more or less go to the grave with this conflict. We also predict what it will take to dethrone the “God of War”, artillery.

Losses Around Kharkiv Stymie Russia’s Offensive Capabilities, Analysts Say

Ukraine’s successful counteroffensive in the northeastern region of Kharkiv has severely reduced Russia’s military capabilities and means Moscow will be unable to achieve its current war aims, analysts said Tuesday.

“The overall situation for Russia is becoming increasingly difficult,” said Konrad Muzyka of Poland-based Rochan Consulting.

“It will be up to Ukraine to decide when, where and how it will regain territory.”

Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky said in his nightly address Monday that Kyiv’s forces had taken back 6,000 square kilometers of territory as a result of fighting in the country’s Kharkiv and Kherson regions. Video footage and photos from the battlefield suggested Russian troops abandoned large amounts of equipment — including tanks and armored vehicles — in their retreat.

As the scale of Russia’s defeat became clear, analysts said losses of men and equipment meant Moscow would be unable to mount any major attacks in the near future.

Ukraine to Supply Poland With Coal After Russian Embargo

Ukraine is willing to export 100,000 tons of coal to Poland in September, according to Ukrainian Prime Minister Denys Shmyhal.

Poland is currently seeking to import coal to make up the shortfall sparked by its decision in spring to stop any further coal imports from Russia. Up until then, Russia had been a major supplier of coal to Poland, an energy source that fuels over 70 percent of Poland’s energy needs, power and heating.

India: Bareilly (UP): Sunil Kumar Murdered Brutally by Muslim Ex-Girlfriend’s Family Over WhatsApp Status

Ramnath Tiwari | HENB | Lucknow | Sept 13, 2022:: The much discussed Sunil murder case under Shishgarh police station area of Bareilly (Uttar Pradesh) has finally been settled in a primary conclusion by the police. Sunil from Hindu community was killed by his Muslim girlfriend’s family brutally. The police have arrested 5 Muslim people including the girlfriend’s family members and sent them to jail.

At the same time, the name of the deceased Sunil’s friend has been revealed in the viral photo of his girlfriend, and a police team is looking for him. Although the police have sent the five accused to jail, the police are still searching many clues related to the murder.

Even after the agreement, he was killed

It is worth noting that the body of a Hindu youth named Sunil Kumar (23) from village Jiangala in Shishgarh, was found hanging on a tree in a field on the morning of September 3. Sunil was having an affair with a girl from Muslim community of the village. After a dispute between the two sides in March, an agreement was reached to keep peace in the village. But, since then, the family of the Muslim girl had a grudge against Sunil, as reported.

In this dispute, Sunil was killed in brutal torture by stuffing a cloth in his mouth, tying hands and feet from behind and finally hanging him from a tree to prove it a suicide case. Sunil returned home at around 12 to 12.30 am on Sept 3, and he went away after receiving a phone call or being lifted by the miscreants.

About which there was a lot of fuss. During this time, the relatives and villagers had blocked the highway for a long time. The deceased’s father had filed a case of murder against Fazal, Yasin’s son of Alladin, Guddu alias Abrar son of Nisar Ahmed, Israr Ahmed, Sarfaraz Ahmed. After 10 days of investigation, the police today finally arrested all the accused and sent them to jail…

Denmark’s Left-Wing Government Will Begin Sending Asylum Seekers to Rwanda After Groundbreaking Agreement

Instead of migrants waiting in Denmark for their asylum request to be processed, the country’s left-wing government will now begin deporting them to Rwanda after the African country agreed to accept them in a bilateral agreement.

The plan, which has long been a goal of Denmark’s right-wing parties, took more than a year of negotiations, but the policy goal is now closer than ever to being realized. The deal does not apply to only Rwandan migrants — instead all asylum seekers would be forced to wait in Africa until their asylum procedure is finished. The fact that the plan is being implemented by a left-leaning government points to the strange circumstances in Denmark in which the left has embraced many of the anti-immigration polices of the right.

France: Congolese Migrant Arrested for Serial Rapes of Hospitalized Pensioners and Schoolgirl

A 27-year-old Congolese migrant was arrested on Friday; he had evaded authorities since July following a double rape of two elderly patients at a hospital in Hauts-de-Seine, a suburb of Paris.

The suspect was arrested at the Gare de Lyon in Paris by the police of the Ile-de-France force. The arrest occurred at approximately 7:30 a.m. as officials approached the man while he was waiting for a metro.

Germany: Calls for a ‘Refugee Summit’ As New Migrant Wave Strains Cities and States

After the travel restrictions due to the pandemic were lifted, migration pressure is noticeably increasing again in Germany, with some experts predicting that Germany may once again need to resort to housing migrants in hotels and gyms as seen during the height of the 2015/16 migrant crisis. Due to a large majority of German states blocking new refugees, some German politicians are now calling for a “refugee summit” to help coordinate during the crisis before it grows out of control.

Currently, the Balkan route is particularly affected, with significantly more people coming to Germany from Syria and Afghanistan, which are two groups known for their poor integration record. A leaked report from the German security services, which was made available to Die Welt, shows that illegal migration to Germany has increased by 47 percent this year. Meanwhile, in Austria, the number of illegal migrants is already comparable to 2015 numbers.

Immigration Making Sweden Democrats Into Major Party

by Harri Honkanen

Could something finally be going right for Sweden? Could one of the most Woke countries in the world, in which a leading bishop urged that crosses be removed from churches so as not to offend immigrants and in which the website of the electoral commission is headed by a large picture of a black man (one of a rotation of four “voter pictures”) have finally had enough?

In the 2018 Swedish Parliamentary Election, the results for the anti-immigration Sweden Democrats were slightly disappointing. They increased their vote share—under a system of Proportional Representation—from 12.8% to 17.6%, but they still came in third, to the mainstream conservative “Moderates” and the victorious Social Democrats, who have come first in every Swedish general election since 1914.

But now their long-awaited breakthrough—after four years of out-of-control gang violence, Africa-like rape rates and muggings in what has been transformed, by Third World immigration, from Europe’s safest to its most dangerous country in just 20 years—may have finally come.

Immigration Watchdog Slams ‘Staggering’ $20.4 Billion U.S. Taxpayers Spend Each Year on Schools, Hospitals and Other Services for the 2.3 Million Migrants Who Entered Under President Joe Biden’s Watch

An immigration watchdog has slammed the ‘staggering’ $20.4 billion U.S. taxpayers spend each year on the education, healthcare and other services for the 2.3 million migrants who have entered the country under President Joe Biden’s watch.

The Federation for American Immigration Reform (FAIR) said the Biden administration had let 1.3 million undocumented aliens across the southern border since January 2021 and an estimated 1 million had snuck in undetected.

Each of those newcomers costs taxpayers $9,232 in education, healthcare, welfare, justice, law enforcement and other government schemes each year, the group said in a statement on Tuesday.

A responding police officer demanded the assailant stop his vehicle and get out, and when he began driving away, the officer opened fire, killing the driver.

Video of the case has been posted to social media.

  1. How Rockefeller Created the Business of Western Medicine

    As an alternative medicine practitioner I have a lot of conversations with patients who are disenchanted with the current Western medicine system. This disenchantment is both related to the quality of care they receive and also the way in which the business of Western medicine is conducted. This post is a brief historical look at the business of Western medicine. This article will not directly address aspects of patient care, instead it will focus on the origins of our current medical business model.

  3. OK – Sweden is lost, even if the Right won the election this time – Magdalena Andersson resigns

    Published 14 September 2022 at 19.20

    INRIKES. Ulf Kristersson’s team has snatched another mandate in the ongoing vote count and now the right wing is proclaimed the election winner. Magdalena Andersson (S) announced at a press conference that she is resigning as prime minister.

    The right-wing bloc leads with 176 seats to the Red-Greens’ 173.

    That lead is expected to be virtually impossible for the left to regain.

    Prime Minister Magdalena Andersson (S) held a press conference at 19:20. She confirmed that the election results will not change.

    – Tomorrow I will ask for my resignation as Prime Minister, she said.

    SD leader Jimmie Åkesson comments on the election result on Facebook.

    “Enough of the failed Social Democratic policies that have continued to lead the country in the wrong direction for eight years. It’s time to start rebuilding security, welfare and cohesion. It’s time to put Sweden first. The Sweden Democrats will be a constructive and driving force in this work,” he writes and continues:

    “Now the work to make Sweden good again begins”.
