Eight European nations pause AstraZeneca coronavirus vaccinations after reports of “serious” blood clot

The European Medicines Agency (EMA), Europe’s equivalent of the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA), confirmed that no fewer than 30 patients who received AstraZeneca’s China virus jab suffered this adverse outcome. At least one of the cases, in Denmark, resulted in death.

“This AstraZeneca story isn’t getting enough attention,” tweeted ForexLive. “It’s going to undermine vaccine takeup. If people are dying it’s a disaster for the company too.”

It is apparent from this tweet that ForexLive is more concerned about the profits of AstraZeneca than it is about people’s lives. ForexLive is also more worried about other people refusing vaccination based on the news than it is about the people who already did get vaccinated and are now suffering.

Denmark, Norway, Estonia, Lithuania, Luxembourg, Latvia, Italy and Iceland have halted administration of the vaccine due to this deadly side effect.

Five countries halt use of one batch of AstraZeneca jab after fatal blood clot

Austria’s national medicines regulator has suspended use of a batch of the AstraZeneca vaccine after four patients were diagnosed with dangerous blood clotting conditions after receiving their jab.

One person died of multiple thrombosis – formation of blood clots within blood vessels – 10 days after their vaccine, the European Medicines Agency (EMA) said.

A second patient was diagnosed with pulmonary embolism – where blockages form in the arteries in the lungs – but is now recovering.

As of Tuesday this week, two other clotting conditions had been identified in patients that had received a dose from the same batch.

The EMA said there is currently no evidence that the vaccine caused the conditions, and that thrombosis is not listed as a potential side effect of the vaccine.

NATO Fleet Reportedly Enters Ukrainian Port of Odessa for First Time in 2021

The alliance has intensified its military presence in Black Sea waters following a rift in relations between the western states and Russia triggered by a 2014 coup and the start of an internal conflict in Ukraine.

A fleet of at least four NATO warships has docked in the Ukrainian port of Odessa on the shores of the Black Sea, Dumskaya.net online media outlet reported. The ships arrived around 9 am GMT on 10 March, according to the media. The commanders of the fleet are reportedly expected to meet with the leadership of the Ukrainian Navy during the visit to Odessa.

Dozens arrested at Dutch anti-lockdown protest as demonstrators carried mock coffin mourning demise of ‘democracy’ (VIDEOS)

At least 28 people have been arrested at anti-lockdown protests in Amsterdam, after around 700 gathered in the city on Sunday to vent their fury at the Dutch government’s handling of the pandemic.

Three individuals were detained for public violence offences, seven for defying police orders, and the rest for flouting the government’s Covid-19 restrictions, local news site NL Times reported, citing a police spokesperson.

Amsterdam Mayor Femke Halsema reportedly helped officers break up the protests in the central Museum Square, before riot police were called in to disperse the remaining demonstrators.

In footage posted on social media, dozens of law enforcement agents could be seen marching in front of riot vehicles to clear the area, with some appearing to hit demonstrators with batons.

China's 7,500-Mile Undersea 'Peace Pipe' To Connect Belt And Road Countries 

The Trump administration spent the last several years bashing China's Belt and Road Initiative (BRI) and called it a 'debt trap', and urged countries worldwide to resist allowing China to build infrastructure projects in their respected countries. With the Biden administration now in power, there has yet to be a visible protest from the White House of Beijing's new plan to construct a 7,500-mile submarine communications cable from Pakistan to Africa to Europe.

The high-speed, 7,500-mile Pakistan and East Africa Connecting Europe (PEACE) subsea communication cable system will offer high-capacity, low-latency routes connecting China, Europe, and Africa. In addition to France, the cable will land in Malta, Cyprus, Egypt, Djibouti, Kenya, Pakistan, and other countries with ultimate connectivity to China.

Radioactive Dust Is Sweeping Over Parts Of Europe From The Sahara

An alarming health disaster could be in the making as it's being widely reported this week that radioactive dust has been sweeping out of the Algerian desert and broader Sahara region across the Mediterranean. Further scientists say the ominous sounding 'radioactive Saharan dust' is causing a pollution spike even over parts of Southern Europe.

The Association for Control of Radioactivity in the West (Acro) reported that scientists have observed the phenomenon happening since February when the dust was found to be over parts of France. Samples confirmed what was found to be radioactive particles in the dust which had been kicked up by a major storm that recently swept Morocco, creating huge dust clouds that picked up the radioactive material that had been left over from past nuclear tests conducted by France on its then colonial possession of Algeria in the early 1960s.

Dozens of Italian teachers fall ill after getting vaccinated for coronavirus

Several dozen teachers in Italy called in sick from work after Wuhan coronavirus (Covid-19) vaccines from AstraZeneca left them violently ill.

Students enrolled at two middle schools near Treviso in northern Italy actually had to be sent home an hour earlier than normal because their teachers were too sick to continue educating them.

At the Duca degli Abruzzi high school, 15 of the school’s 130 teachers were absent, complaining of malaise, fever and pain deep in their bones. At San Domenico Savio, a local primary school, two of the three teachers called in sick with similar complaints about vaccine side effects that left them incapacitated.

Many other schools in the area are reportedly suffering from a similar lack of healthy teachers, prompting them to close until they can find proper replacements.

Local Italian media reported that some 3,000 teachers were vaccinated on Saturday...

Spain: Another 9 care home residents dead and 78 infected with COVID-19 days after receiving Pfizer’s MRNA jab

Nine elderly care home residents in Spain have died and a further 69 tested positive for COVID-19 10 days after they were given the first dose of Pfizer’s COVID vaccination.

The news adds to the growing number of reports of people dying shortly after receiving the experimental vaccine.

El Salvador care home in Toledo in Spain, run by the “Messengers of Peace,” began administering the first doses of the Pfizer experimental vaccine on January 13.

After six days, ten residents began to demonstrate symptoms of COVID-19, which swiftly resulted in a large number of residents and staff presenting with symptoms.

As of February 2, there had been a total of nine residents who had died following their injection, 5 more in hospital, and 33 members of staff who were found to have tested positive according to PCR tests.

Vega C, a new generation launcher

Vega C is the next generation of the European small lift launcher developed by Avio and is now ready for the maiden flight. The rocket will also launch the Space Rider in the near future and a new smaller and versatile version is under development.

Since the beginning of the Vega program, improved versions of the European small lift launcher were envisioned by the developer and main contractor: Avio. The first of these versions is Vega C (Vega Consolidated). The new rocket is more powerful than its predecessor, being capable of lifting up to 2,300 kilograms in Low Earth Orbit, about 60% more than the previous version. Vega C has the same configuration in common with Vega, consisting of three solid propelled stages and one liquid propelled upper stage. All the components have passed the scheduled tests needed before the first flight.

Merkel: EU Leaders Agree to Introduce Vaccination Certificates, They Will Be Ready Within 3 Months

The concept of vaccination certificates was rolled out as an idea that could facilitate travel between the countries of the bloc during the ongoing coronavirus pandemic.

German Chancellor Angela Merkel said on Thursday that the leaders of the European Union have agreed on the need to introduce a certificate of coronavirus vaccination, noting that the bloc will need three months to prepare.

"Everyone agreed that we need a digital vaccination certificate," Merkel said during the press conference after the virtual EU summit.

Europe's Rare Earth Dependency Dilemma

Solar panels. Wind turbines. Electric vehicle batteries and motors. These are just four of the things that need one or more of a group of minerals known as rare earths. Incidentally, these are also four of the things the EU is basing its future on. And it produces next to none of these critical rare earths.

Like lithium, rare earths are abundant. Deposits large enough to make economic sense, however, are only found in a limited number of areas around the world, with the largest deposits discovered so far in China. Rare earth exports are a lucrative business for Asia’s biggest economy, where it has virtually established world domination. And this domination is not good news for Europe—or the United States, for that matter.

In 2020, China mined 140,000 tons of rare earths. The United States was a distant second with an output of 38,000 tons, and Burma was third with 30,000 tons. Europe doesn’t even figure in the list of rare earth producers globally.

Belgians warned to shun govt-distributed masks as they may contain TOXIC chemicals

Millions of cloth facemasks distributed by the federal government in Belgium in 2020 may contain toxic chemicals according to a newly-leaked report from Sciensano, the Belgian Institute for Public Health.

The Belgian government purchased 15 million Avrox masks and dispensed them through private pharmacies to its 11.5 million citizens. However, due to additional mask sales and delivery efforts by local authorities and private companies, only an estimated third of the federally-distributed masks were actually used.

The masks were produced in Asia by Luxembourg firm Avrox and now an investigation is underway following complaints from rival Belgian mass manufacturers about the possible contamination of the Avrox masks with toxic nanoparticles of silver and with titanium dioxide, used to dye the masks white.

If these toxic nanoparticles are indeed found to be present, then Belgians who wore the government-issued masks may suffer respiratory tract damage.

Switzerland REJECTS AstraZeneca coronavirus vaccine, citing lack of sufficient data to prove effectiveness

The main medical regulator of Switzerland has rejected the Oxford-AstraZeneca Wuhan coronavirus (COVID-19) vaccine. According to the regulator, there is a lack of available trial data to prove that the vaccine is safe to use.

“With regard to the AstraZeneca vaccine, the data submitted and analyzed so far are not yet sufficient to permit authorization,” said the Swiss Agency for Therapeutic Products (SwissMedic) in a statement released on Wednesday, Feb. 3.

“To obtain more information about safety, efficacy and quality, additional data from new studies are needed.”

Is Switzerland Sliding into Dictatorship? Social Coercion, Privileges to Those Who Accept the Covid Vaccine

A secret paper from the Swiss Federal Council (Swiss Executive) was leaked to the Swiss Newspaper “Der Blick” divulging that the Federal Council is considering granting owners of restaurants, theatres, cinemas, and more, as well as private event organizers, the right to allow access to those people only, who have had their corona virus shots.

In addition to the Blick, Swiss Radio and Television (SRG) repeated this news item in the morning of 23 February. SRG, the Swiss fear-inducing propaganda broadcasting system, also linked so-called “corona deniers” to alleged “anti-Semitism”, referring to an article in Swissinfo, “Covid Pandemic Fans Flames of anti-Semitism in Switzerland”. Anti-Semitism has often been used to intimidate free opinions that run counter the official narrative.

Norway May Become Battleground Between U.S. and Russia, Says Expert

Colonel Tormod Heier highlighted that strengthening the U.S. military presence in Norway would have negative consequences for the Scandinavian country. According to Norwegian state-owned media NRK in an article titled “Can Joe Biden become dangerous for Norway?” Colonel Heier, a professor at the Norwegian Defence College, said Norway could turn into a battlefield if tensions broke out between the U.S. and Russia.

“Norway is part of the great power rivalry between the United States and Russia. The probability increases that Norway will become a battlefield in the event of a conflict or a crisis becoming out of control between the Russians and Americans,” he said.

Moscow disappointed by EU's move to prepare new illegitimate sanctions - Foreign Ministry

Russia has been disappointed by the decision of the Council of the European Union to prepare new illegitimate unilateral sanctions against Russian citizens, the statement by the Russian Foreign Ministry made public on Monday said.

"The decision to prepare new illegitimate unilateral restrictions against Russian citizens approved by the Foreign Affairs Council of the European Union on February 22 of this year over a contrived excuse causes disappointment. Another opportunity was missed by the European Union to rethink a course of artificial connections, sanctions and pressure in relations with Russia which over the past years has demonstrated its complete inadequacy," the Foreign Ministry pointed out. "Instead, following the bloc’s discipline and anti-Russian stereotypes, Brussels again instinctively pushes the inoperative sanctions ‘button.’ Moreover, defying logic, first a political decision is made and then it is planned to arbitrarily find candidates for it," the statement noted.

Italy: Dozens of Teachers Sick After Receiving Coronavirus Vaccine

Dozens of Italian teachers called in sick Monday after getting inoculated with the AstraZeneca vaccine against the coronavirus over the weekend in Treviso, northern Italy, local media report.

Students in two area middle schools were sent home an hour earlier than usual due to insufficient teaching staff. At the Duca degli Abruzzi high school, 15 teachers out of 130 were absent, complaining of fever, malaise, and pain in the bones.

In a local primary school, San Domenico Savio, two out of three teachers called in sick with similar complaints of aggravated side effects from the vaccine that had left them incapacitated.

Now there is talk of some schools being forced to close for lack of teachers, the Tribuna di Treviso reports Monday, since “dozens and dozens” of local teachers find themselves unable to report for work.

Psychotherapist appeals to European Court after UK university cancels his PhD on transgender regret

A researcher whose university cancelled his study of sex-change regret has taken his case to the European Court of Human Rights.

James Caspian, 61, a psychotherapist who had counselled transgender people for a decade, was prevented by England’s Bath Spa University from pursuing a project it had initially accepted: a study entitled “An examination of the experience of people who have undergone Reverse Gender Reassignment Surgery.” A former teacher training college, Bath Spa was not permitted to grant university degrees until 1992.

Supported by the Christian Legal Centre, Caspian first challenged the Bath Spa University’s decision in the British courts. Now he is taking his case to the European Court of Human Rights (ECtHR).

“I have been faced with no alternative but to take this case to Europe,” Caspian stated in a press release.

Biden's Post-Trump NATO-Reset Points To Fading US Global Power In Multipolar World

A month after his inauguration, President Joe Biden’s administration formally engaged on the international stage this week to set out key foreign policies.

His Secretary of Defense Lloyd Austin addressed a two-day NATO summit via video link in which he relayed the message from Biden that the US would re-engage with transatlantic European allies. Four years of Donald Trump’s abrasive America First policy was being jettisoned in place of a more smooth, consensual approach under Biden.

Pfizer-BioNTech tried to gouge the EU with 65-DOLLAR vaccine doses, German media report

Drugmakers Pfizer and BioNTech wanted to charge the EU Commission €54.08 per dose of their Coronavirus vaccine, according to German media reports. The jab would have cost more than 20 times that of a rival shot from AstraZeneca.

The prospective price tag was revealed on Thursday by German broadcasters NDR and WDR, and the Suddeutsche Zeitung newspaper. The paper claims that Pfizer and BioNTech submitted a bid to the EU offering 500 million doses at €54.08 ($65.58) per dose, for a total cost of €27 billion ($32.74 billion).

Marines Will Stay, Train in Norway After Big Military Exercise Canceled

About 1,000 Marines who arrived in Norway last month -- only to have their military exercises canceled due to the pandemic -- will remain in the country for arctic training.

The Marines will be in Norway's high north region until spring, continuing "valuable arctic and mountain warfare training," Maj. Adrian J.T. Rankine-Galloway, a Marine Corps Forces Europe and Africa spokesman, said Thursday.

While a small number of Marines headed back to the U.S. after Norwegian officials canceled a pair of multinational exercises there last month, most of the members of 3rd Battalion, 6th Marines, who arrived in the country last month stayed put, he said.

No Lockdown Sweden Sees COVID Deaths Plummet Quicker Than UK

While the media in the UK is asserting lockdown measures caused COVID-19 deaths and cases to plummet, Sweden saw an even greater drop off in deaths despite enforcing comparatively minor restrictions.

This morning, UK broadcaster Sky News declared “Lockdown is working! COVID-19 infection rate plummets in England.”

“One of the largest and most authoritative coronavirus surveys has found that infections are quickly falling in England, confirming that lockdown is working to suppress the virus,” states the report.

The report claims that vaccines aren’t a factor in the reduction in deaths and cases because they are observed across all age groups.

Draghi Says New Italian Gov’t to Be Pro-European, Atlanticist in International Relations

The new Italian government will be pro-European and Atlanticist in its foreign policy, Prime Minister Mario Draghi said Wednesday.

"As for our international relations, this government will be firmly pro-European and Atlanticist, in line with historic ties of Italy: the European Union, Atlantic alliance (NATO), the United Nations. …Our commitment to efficient multilateralism is deep and based on indispensable role of the United Nations," Draghi said at the Senate where the vote of confidence in the new government would take place later in the day.

The prime minister added that Italy would continue to pay particular attention to the relations with the Balkans, greater Mediterranean region, Libya and Africa.

EU officials in Brussels will be vaccinated in separate centres

People working for international institutions based in Brussels, such as the European Commission and NATO, will be vaccinated against the coronavirus in separate vaccination centres, not the ones used for the rest of the city.

NATO and the European Commission and Parliament will vaccinate their own staff, around 31,000 people in total, in line with the timing put in place for the rest of the country.

The vaccination of EU officials is part of the region’s overall strategy, and will start at the same time as phase 1B, at the beginning of March, meaning they will not receive their jabs before other people in Belgium.

“For vaccinations, we treat them like we do a large hospital, where we deliver the vaccine quota, and people are vaccinated on the spot,” Inge Neven of the Brussels health inspectorate told BX1, adding that the decision has been made in agreement with the regional authorities.

Let us never forget the miracles performed by the Donald Trump Dating Agency.

For a little while in 2020, we could stop worrying about a deadly virus and celebrate the peace agreements between Israel and countries with which it had never been at war. By arranging those accords, Trump could seek a second presidential term posing as part-Cupid part-Gandhi.

That election didn’t go as well as he would have hoped. But the beautiful love story that Trump scripted has now endured beyond Valentine’s Day.

Next week it will continue with a weapons fair in the United Arab Emirates.

Is a Revolutionary Movement Developing in Europe? Rejecting the Lockdown and the Mask

US media provides little news of Europe. What is provided is strictly “narrated.” Consequently, Americans are unaware of what seems to be a spontaneous, leaderless, popular uprising against mandated lockdowns and masks.

There are large demonstrations in Germany, and they have spread to Vienna and to Copenhagen. The people have more sense than the public authorities and reject the Covid mandates.

In The Netherlands, the Hague Court has ruled that the Covid curfew has no legal basis and “is a far-reaching violation of the right to freedom of movement and privacy and limits, among other things, the right to freedom of assembly and demonstration.” See this.

EU Craves New 'Clearing House' Body to 'De-Escalate' Brexit Tensions Over Northern Ireland

The Democratic Unionist party is planning to get rid of the Northern Ireland Protocol, part of the Brexit withdrawal agreement, as it believes the clause undermines the country’s position within the United Kingdom with custom checks and border controls in the Irish Sea.

Tensions in Northern Ireland have been on the rise since the end of the Brexit transition period, so the European commission has decided to establish a new committee, dubbed a “clearing house”, to evaluate solutions to issues arising from the implementation of the Northern Ireland protocol, the EC’s Vice-President Maroš Šef?ovi? told MPs in Ireland’s lower chamber.

Speaking in front of lawmakers at Dáil’s European affairs committee, the official noted that the protocol’s introduction has been “administratively extremely challenging” but said that many of the arising issues were anticipated by UK and EU partners.

France is Urgently Buying Russian Gas Amid Europe's Cold Weather Crisis

Europe has been hit by extreme amount of snow and cold temperatures this year, which have exhausted countries' own fuel reserves and prompted them to seek additional help elsewhere.

Russia’s energy giant Gazprom has increased its export of gas to France by almost 1.5 times since the start of the year, the company said on its Telegram channel, linking Europe’s surging demand for natural gas to the “cold, frosty winter..

France’s gas reserves in underground storage have declined below 30%, the gas producer added, citing data from Gas Infrastructure Europe. In Germany, the gas reserves reportedly dropped to 34.17% and to 45.28% in Austria.

NATO ready for peace with Moscow…or confrontation, Stoltenberg claims after ordering funding boost for troops on Russian border

Despite its growing military presence and war games in Eastern Europe, the question of whether NATO troops stationed in the region come as allies or enemies is really up to Russia, the head of the US-led bloc has insisted.

Jens Stoltenberg, the secretary general of the organization told the Spanish newspaper El Mundo on Tuesday that it was open for dialogue with Moscow, but also prepared for hostilities. In comments quoted in the Russian media, he insisted that “we need to send a clear signal to Russia… If they want clashes, we are ready. If they want to co-operate, we will be glad.”

According to the military chief, Russia “is our neighbor. They have interests – we need to avoid incidents, especially at the borders.”

Dutch court REINSTATES coronavirus curfew in break-neck reversal of earlier order to end ‘illegitimate’ policy

A Dutch appeals court has revived the country’s Covid-19 curfew just moments before it came into effect, overturning a ruling handed down hours earlier ordering the government to lift the “illegitimate” measure immediately.

A three-judge appellate panel granted an emergency injunction following a request from the Dutch government on Tuesday, agreeing to vacate the earlier order from a lower court to end the nightly curfew, DW reported. The decision came just moments before the 9pm curfew was set to take effect, with the judges scheduling a full hearing on its legality for Friday.

The appeals judges argued that they wanted to avoid what they called a “yo-yo effect,” referring to public confusion around whether the curfew was still in force, adding that “in this case, the state’s interests weigh more than that of Virus Truth’s,” the activist group that brought the initial complaint against the curfews to court – also known by its Dutch name, Viruswaarheid.

'Western Elites Want a World Without Religion and History': Publisher Slams Repurposing of Churches

While religious venues all over the Netherlands are often being "recycled" into apartments and bars, some Dutch observers see outside pressure – namely the anti-religious strategy of Western elites as the key driver behind this process.

Dutch churches are in a deep crisis. According to public broadcaster RTL News, some of them are unable to afford maintenance costs. Others suffer from a lack of attention by parishioners. In addition, almost all religious venues in the Netherlands recently fell victim to COVID restrictions, resulting in staggeringly low attendance and smaller contributions.

As a result, many venues placed "For Sale" signs on their premises, with some rural Dutch churches going for as low as 35,000 euros.

"Far-Reaching Violation": Dutch Govt Ordered To Lift 'Illegitimate' Pandemic Curfew By Hague Court

A top court in The Hague issued a "shock" ruling that curbs the power of civic authorities to impose sweeping coronavirus-related curfews which should have significant reverberations legally for similar scenarios in other countries.

"The curfew must be lifted immediately," the court said in a statement, underscoring that the Dutch government is abusing its powers by violating freedom of movement and assembly in particular. The pandemic curfew must be reversed immediately, the government has been told, which comes after weeks of fierce protests by an angry population which seems to have rejected it in unison.

EU has been breaking off relations with Moscow for years, says Russian Foreign Minister Lavrov amid growing tension with Brussels

Worsening ties between the EU and Russia are the fault of Brussels, Sergey Lavrov has claimed, saying that the bloc blames Moscow for its woes in Ukraine and has unilaterally torn up beneficial diplomatic agreements.

Speaking at a press conference in St. Petersburg on Monday and citing what he called Brussels’ failed political intervention in Ukraine during the country’s 2014 Maidan protests, Lavrov said that “it was then that the real humiliation of the EU took place.”

Since then, Lavrov said, its politicians have been “by and large indifferent at the attacks that the inhabitants of Crimea and eastern Ukraine were subjected to by the ultra-radicals and neo-Nazis who came to power.”

At the same time, he said, the EU “blamed the Russian Federation for everything that is happening” and “has consistently destroyed all mechanisms without exception that existed on the basis of an agreement on partnership and cooperation.”

EU Solidarity Cracks as Merkel’s Germany Tightens Borders Against Neighbours

Germany on Sunday implemented tighter border controls on its frontiers with the Czech Republic and Austria’s Tyrol province in an effort to stem the spread of more contagious coronavirus variants.

The new restrictions that took effect at midnight limit entry from those areas to German citizens and residents, truck drivers, transport and health service staff and a few others, who have to register online and show a negative coronavirus test.

Interior Minister Horst Seehofer told the Bild am Sonntag newspaper that the new checks may cause some delays at the border and German police “will not just wave traffic through.”

Infection rates in Germany have been declining steadily in recent weeks but officials are concerned about the possible impact of variants first discovered in Britain and South Africa. Both variants have been reported in Germany but so far appear to account for just a small proportion of cases.

White House Reportedly Holding Internal Talks on Nord Stream 2 as Russian Pipelayer Resumes Work

Washington has slapped two rounds of sanctions on the $10.5 billion Russian-European energy infrastructure project, and has threatened its Western European allies with secondary restrictions. Berlin has rejected the idea of extraterritorial sanctions, but has also reportedly agreed to negotiate with the Biden administration on possible concessions.

Germany and the United States have not yet start direct negotiations on Nord Stream 2, Handelsblatt reports, citing officials and sources in government circles.

The newspaper says the key reason that negotiations have yet to start is that key positions in Washington have yet to be filled, among them counterparts to the staff of Federal Minister of Economic Affairs and Energy Peter Altmaier.

No Way Nord Stream 2 Won’t be Used as Russia’s Partners in EU Need Project, Official Says

The joint project by Russia’s Gazprom and European energy giants has faced harsh criticism and pressure from the US, who is demanding that the EU ditch the pipeline and buy American or other foreign LNG instead, threatening sanctions otherwise.

The Nord Stream 2 pipeline doesn’t face the risk of being unused as EU countries are interested in it, Russian Deputy Prime Minister Alexander Novak said in an interview with the TV channel Rossiya 1. He stressed that the pipeline is in full compliance with European laws and that all of the issues it faces are related to competition with the US over gas markets.

"It is simply a competition on the part of American partners who want to sell their liquefied natural gas [LNG] to Europe. So, in essence, we're witnessing non-market methods of competition [on their part]", Novak said.

Soros-Funded NGO Demands Punishment for Hungary Migrant ‘Pushbacks’

Andras Lederer from the George Soros-backed Hungarian Helsinki Committee has called on the European Union to punish Hungary after accusing the country of engaging in migrant pushbacks in contradiction of a European Court of Justice (ECJ) ruling.

Mr Lederer criticised the European Commission for inaction over the alleged pushbacks along the Serbian border with Hungary, saying that the central European nation was acting in defiance of an ECJ ruling from December that stated that pushbacks were unlawful.

“It’s not very often in the legal field that things are crystal clear,” Leder told German broadcaster Deutsche Welle and added: “But that is the case with ECJ rulings. They are binding, and Hungary must obey and implement them. But the Hungarian government is not doing it.”

More Than Five Million EU Migrants Have Applied to Stay in UK

More than five million migrants from the European Union have applied to live permanently in Britain under the EU settlement scheme, with applications still open until June 2021.

Of those, nearly 2.5 million (2,497,600) have already been granted permanent leave to remain, and more than two million (2,039,800) have been granted pre-settled status, meaning that they can apply in five years for full legal residency.

Another 38,900 had their applications refused, 50,600 were deemed invalid, and 51,400 were withdrawn or void, according to provisional Home Office figures reported by The Telegraph on Thursday.

"Show Of Force Unseen Since Cold War": US Military Flexes In Norway

Amid mounting tensions between Russia and the West and as the Kremlin has lately placed strategic emphasis on its military readiness in the far north Arctic Circle, AFP reports that "The United States is deploying long-range B-1 bombers to Norway to train in the strategically important High North in a new show of force unseen in the region since the Cold War."

As we described last week ahead of the deployment, the US Air Force announced that for the first time ever it will send multiple B-1 Lancer bombers along with 200 airmen to Norway, which comes amid greater NATO calls to "confront Russia".

Germany, Hungary back Israel in opposing ICC ruling on war crimes probe

The Foreign Ministries of Germany and Hungary on Tuesday denounced the International Criminal Court’s ruling last week that the court has jurisdiction to open an investigation into alleged war crimes by Israel and the Hamas terror group.

Israel has denounced the Friday ruling and the US objected to it, while the Palestinians supported the move. Israel and the US are not members of the ICC; the Palestinian Authority joined the court in 2015.

Heiko Maas, the German foreign minister, said “the court has no jurisdiction because of the absence of the element of Palestinian statehood required by international law.”

Youths hurl FIREBOMBS at riot police in Athens as Greece debates controversial education reforms (VIDEO)

Anger over proposed legislation that would ramp up security at Greek universities spilled over into the streets of Athens, as activists tossed Molotov cocktails during pitched battles with police.

Thousands of protesters faced off with law enforcement near the Hellenic Parliament building in Syntagma Square on Wednesday, as lawmakers debated a bill that would place uniformed, unarmed security personnel on university campuses. Currently, police are prohibited from entering the grounds of higher-education institutions, due to a law adopted after the country’s right-wing dictatorship violently crushed a student uprising at Athens Polytechnic in 1973.

OBEY: Europeans will soon be eating bugs after mealworms get the green light from food regulators

Mealworms just got an inch closer to European dining tables after the European Union‘s (EU) food safety watchdog, the European Food Safety Authority (EFSA), found the insects safe for human consumption.

French company EAP Group Agronutris submitted the application for the approval of mealworms in 2018. Despite their name, mealworms are not actually worms – they are the larvae of the mealworm beetle.

Rich in fat and high-quality protein, mealworms offer a sustainable source of food with a lower carbon footprint. However, the bug may not be advisable for consumption among people with seafood and dust mite allergies.

EFSA experts are hopeful that the European Commission will soon approve mealworms as a food product fit for supermarket shelves, kitchen pantries and restaurant menus across the EU.

Europe's Debt Cancellation Would Mean Recognition Of Insolvency

Economist Thomas Piketty, creator of some of the most absurd proposals embraced by the extreme left, has published an article in which he demands a cancellation of government debt in the hands of the European Central Bank “in exchange for greater public investment” ... which, by the way, would be paid with more issuance of public debt. Fascinating.

Luís de Guindos, vice president of the ECB, has settled the controversy with two pieces of evidence.

“Cancelling the debt (in the ECB balance sheet) is illegal and also does not make economic sense,” he explained to Reuters on February 4th, 2020.

The first part is obvious. It is prohibited by the bylaws of the European Central Bank. I will explain the lack of economic logic here.

Exclusive Interview: Hungary Scrapping Income Tax for Under-25s to Support Youth, Families

The Hungarian government is scrapping income tax for under-25s to help young people “to have a future in Hungary, to start a family, raise children, prosper, and live” the country’s families minister told Breitbart in an exclusive interview.

This is part one of two part-part interview with Katalin Novák, Hungary’s Minister for Family Affairs.

Katalin Novák, who has been helping to drive Prime Minister Viktor Orbán’s pro-family agenda for seven years now, told Breitbart London that, according to preliminary calculations, the policy could help some 460,000 people in the country of roughly ten million, and estimated that “the income of youngsters will increase by 22 per cent” as a result.

'The EU is an unreliable partner' Russian Foreign Minister Lavrov:

Russia had recently said that it would take a more assertive stand against the sanctions and Navalny nonsense the 'west' is throwing at it.

Today the EU's foreign policy chief Josep Borrell visited Moscow. He had a talk with Russia's Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov.

It was showtime:

Borrell said he had conveyed the EU’s unhappiness about the jailing of Navalny. “I have conveyed to Minister Lavrov our deep concern and reiterated our appeal for his release and the launch of an impartial investigation of his poisoning,” he said.

But his remarks were overshadowed by Lavrov’s forceful rebuke, in which he repeated his doubts about the West’s conclusion that Navalny was poisoned with a military-grade nerve agent — a conclusion that German Chancellor Angela Merkel personally announced in Berlin, where Navalny was treated. Laboratories in France and Sweden, as well as the Organization for the Prohibition of Chemical Weapons, confirmed the German findings.

The UK-EU Clash Over Northern Ireland Will Have Grave Consequences

"Get your retaliation in first,” is a cynical old saying in Northern Irish politics that means you hit your opponent whenever you can without waiting for a provocation. It neatly captures the violent traditions of the province and explains why the political temperature there is always close to boiling over.

Imagine then the pleasure of those unionists who had always opposed the Northern Ireland Protocol, which places the new EU/UK commercial frontier between Northern Ireland and mainland Britain, to find that they had been genuinely provoked by the European Commission. In a classic cock-up, but one with grave and lasting consequences, Brussels had briefly called for a “hard border” between Northern Ireland and the Republic of Ireland, something it had repeatedly told Britain was an anathema because it would endanger the Good Friday Agreement and open the road to communal violence.

Fury at Gove as exports to EU slashed by 68% since Brexit

The volume of exports going through British ports to the EU fell by a staggering 68% last month compared with January last year, mostly as a result of problems caused by Brexit, the Observer can reveal.

The dramatic drop in the volume of traffic carried on ferries and through the Channel tunnel has been reported to Cabinet Office minister Michael Gove by the Road Haulage Association after a survey of its international members. In a letter to Gove dated 1 February, the RHA’s chief executive, Richard Burnett, also told the minister he and his officials had repeatedly warned over several months of problems and called for measures to lessen difficulties – but had been largely ignored.

EU chief von der Leyen compares fight for Covid vaccine supplies to the Cold War space race - hours after bloc turned to Russia for help with their inoculation disaster

EU Commission President Ursula von der Leyen today compared vaccine nationalism to the Cold War space race.

The beleaguered Brussels chief said this 'old confrontational mindset' akin to US-Soviet tensions was not helping global efforts to beat coronavirus.

She told students at Warwick University: 'Some countries see the quest for a vaccine as a race amongst global powers, like the space race in the 1960s.'

Denmark May Soon Force Churches to Submit Their Sermons to Government

Christian leaders in Denmark say religious liberty and the freedoms of speech and expression have come under fire after a proposed law would require leaders of all faiths to translate their sermons into Danish and submit them to the government.

La Croix International reports the new measure is primarily aimed at radical Islamic groups, but it will also affect churches. It is scheduled to be reviewed this month at the Folketing, the Danish Parliament. The country has more a population of more than 270,000 Muslims, and most of the sermons in the mosques are preached in Arabic.

The government of Denmark has said the law is necessary to curb the growth of Islamic extremism. CBN News sources explain the measure is aimed at getting the preaching of jihad out of mosques, but because Europe is so politically correct they won’t just pinpoint mosques. They’re including churches and casting a broad, politically correct net.

Criminal Conspiracy Probe Launched After Greta Thunberg Accidentally Posts Her Marching Orders

[Link to the now deleted document is in this Web page ]
Environmental extremist Greta Thunberg sparked a criminal conspiracy probe after sharing the wrong document with her nearly 5 million Twitter followers.

The investigation began after the 18-year-old Thunberg accidentally tweeted apparent orders advising her on what to post and say about sensitive world issues.

The Wednesday post was quickly deleted, but not before being saved and shared by multiple accounts. Pictures of Thunberg’s document reveal one of the suggested posts included a manufactured response in support of Indian farmers violently protesting their government.

Screenshots of the tweet show the document was accidentally posted by Thunberg as she offered her supporters a “toolkit” to help support the protests.

After deleting her post, Thunberg tried to spin the marching orders as an “outdated” document in a follow-up.

Greta Thunberg exposed: Leaked toolkit for protests sparks row in India

The leaked document is adding fuel to the view that there is an international conspiracy afoot to defame India and the Modi government over the farmer protests.

By IBT News Desk February 4, 2021 04:16 IST

Swedish youth activist Greta Thunberg shared a toolkit on social media for the farmer protests in India which indicates that a widespread campaign may have been on much before January 26.

Twitter erupted in India after the toolkit surfaced which included a document on details of January 26 protests and online and street protests. The document was restricted thereafter and the tweet was deleted, as per reports.

This document is adding fuel to the view that there is an international conspiracy afoot to defame India and the Modi government over the farmer protests.

The document details how and where the protests should be done outside Indian missions abroad, media houses, government buildings and even Adani-Ambani offices.

EU’s Coercive Kulturkampf on Hungary and Poland Is Just Starting Up

The EU is talking tough on Hungary and Poland. Shortly after a fragile truce was reached in the bitter rule-of-law budget dispute, the European Court of Justice found both nations guilty of breaking EU law. In an interview with German newspaper Der Tagesspiegel, Vera Jourova, the European Commission’s vice president for values and transparency, confirmed that the EU plans to use its new rule-of-law mechanism against Hungary and Poland this year.

Hungary and Poland had vetoed the most recent EU budget over the rule-of-law mechanism. They then thought they had arrived at a compromise with the EU.

But opinion about the compromise remains divided. Some commentators characterise it as a defeat for the two rebellious member states. Others lament that it represents the complete undermining of the mechanism.

FORMER ECB CHIEF MARIO DRAGHI TAPPED TO LEAD ITALY AS GOVERNMENT COLLAPSES

The day may have finally come for "Super Mario" to take the reins in his chaotic home-country of Italy and lead it back to the path of capitalism-driven prosperity before its banking system collapses. But what will the "whatever it takes" central banker ethos mean with Draghi now responsible for one of the most fiscally-frayed major powers in Europe?

After a series of earlier votes, Giuseppe Conte, who was brought in as an apolitical compromise PM just a couple of years ago by a tenuous coalition of the Five Star movement and The League, Italy's popular right-wing anti-migrant party. The League's leader, Matteo Salvini, was ousted in the summer of 2019 after attempting to force another election in which The League would (at least in theory) walk away with enough votes for Salvini to expel his pesky coalition partners.

But that's not how it went.

Criticism Pours in as Norway Confirms Historic Deployment of US Bombers

The first deployment of American bombers at a Norwegian air base has been met with criticism from several parties, who warned that an escalation of US activity on Norwegian soil is not in the country's interest amid a negative spiral of ever-increasing tensions between the US and Russia.

American bombers will be deployed to the Ørland Air Base during the course of February. Crews numbering some 200 airmen have already arrived at the base, the Norwegian Armed Forced stressed, finally confirming previous reports.

"The planes will arrive in February, depending on how long it will take to get through preparations for crews, among other things with regard to infection control and coronavirus", the head of 132th Air Wing at Ørland Air Base, Øivind Gunnerud, told national broadcaster NRK.

Lawsuit Filed Against Denmark PM For COVID-19 Restrictions & Killing 17 Million Minks

A major lawsuit has been filed against the PM of Denmark for strict COVID-19 restrictions and for killing almost 17 million minks. According to the lawsuit, authorities did not recommend a major shutdown, as the PM Mette Frederiksen claimed. It was herself and Barbara Bertelsen, the Prime Minister’s Head of Department, who would send alarm emails with attached articles from the media to the heads of department, creating the panic.

Danish PM accused of illegally killing 17 million minks

The Danish Prime Minister Mette Frederiksen has been accused by its citizens and advisory for strict COVID-19 restrictions which led to the killing of millions of minks related to the coronavirus mutation.

The strict lockdown measure which was implemented was also very unconstitutional and now she is under scanner for such tyrannical measures undertaken by her.

Numerous Small Businesses in Poland Have Reopened in a Mass Civil Disobedience Campaign

A map has been launched by anti-lockdown activists showing the growing number of businesses in Poland that are reopening in violation of the government’s restrictions.

While a number of struggling businesses have taken to open defiance of rules – and some have successfully challenged them in court – others have also sought creative workarounds, including an ice rink that declared itself a flower shop and nightclubs posing as political party headquarters.

According to the current restrictions, hotels, restaurants and bars, shopping centres, as well as most sporting facilities and cultural venues have been ordered to stay closed until at least the end of this month.

Many struggling business owners have, however, begun protesting against the lockdown. Some argue that the rules are not only unjustly strict, but are also an illegal encroachment on constitutional freedoms because the government has not introduced a state of emergency that would justify them.

Europe's Unforeseen Renewables Problem

Earlier this month, something happened in Europe.

It didn’t get as much media attention as the EU’s massive funding plans for its energy transition, but it was arguably as important, if not more.

A fault occurred at a substation in Croatia and caused an overload in parts of the grid, which spread beyond the country’s borders. This created a domino effect that caused a blackout and prompted electricity supply reductions as far as France and Italy. The problem was dealt with, but it’s only a matter of time before more problems like this occur—the reason: the rise of renewables in the energy mix.

Bloomberg reported on the incident citing several sources from Europe’s utility sector. While no one would directly blame the blackout and the increased risk of more blackouts on renewables, it is evident that Europe’s change in the energy mix is raising this risk.

Swedish capital sees 79% spike in shootings as govt laments ‘high levels’ of violence in the Scandinavian country

Sweden recorded a surge in gun-related violence last year, according to new figures released by the government amid accusations that authorities have turned a blind eye to rising crime in the country.

Interior Minister Mikael Damberg disclosed on Monday that 47 people were killed and 117 injured in 366 shooting incidents in 2020, marking a 10 percent increase in gun violence when compared to statistics from 2019.

Damberg noted that in nearly half of the shootings registered last year, someone was injured or killed. “We will neither accept nor get used to such high levels of violence,” he said.

The situation in Malmo, a city with a large migrant population that has struggled with gang violence, has improved, while crime is surging in Stockholm, the interior minister pointed out. According to Damberg, the Swedish capital saw a staggering 79 percent increase in shootings in 2020.

Authorities Respond to Lockdown Protest with 300 Preventative Arrests

Belgian police arrested more than 300 people in Brussels before two banned demonstrations against coronavirus lockdown measures were due to take place.

Police made the arrests outside the Gare du Nord and Gare du Midi railway stations on Sunday before protesters could take part in the demonstrations, with many of those detained reportedly football supporters.

According to a report from newspaper Le Soir, the police surrounded the train stations and arrested many of the football supporters as soon as they got off their trains.

In total, at least 400 people were arrested, either before or during the planned demos, and police said that all of those involved were subject to identification checks.

Brussels was not the only European capital to see anti-lockdown protests over the weekend. In Vienna, around 10,000 took to the streets, with an estimated 5,000 people gathering in a square in the centre of the city near the Hofburg Palace.

Austria to ease Covid-19 lockdown by opening schools and shops, while tightening borders to hinder arrival of new variants

Schools and non-essential shops in Austria will reopen next week as the country loosens its lockdown, though border measures will be tightened to stop Covid-19 variants coming in, Chancellor Sebastian Kurz has said.

From February 8, schoolkids will have to furnish negative coronavirus test results in order to attend their classes, while shoppers will have to wear the higher-grade FFP2 face masks, which are already mandatory on public transport and in essential shops.

Austria will also reopen museums, galleries, libraries and zoos, and will switch from its current 24-hour ban on movement to overnight curfews between 8pm and 6am.

Hairdressers, tattoo parlors and massage services will also be permitted, but only people who have presented a negative Covid-19 test from the last 48 hours will be allowed in.

[VIDEO] Part II of Steve Hilton’s Investigative Deep Dive on Fauci Has People Calling For an Arrest

Hilton said everything started with a study using "ferrets" -- that's how this pandemic was born and Fauci was at the center of it all

In an ironic twist, Obama created a “safety mechanism” that would halt research that had the potential to create a worldwide pandemic.

The research centered around a study involving ferrets of all things.

The study started some 10-years-ago at a lab in the Netherlands, but it quickly gained steam, and labs all over the world were studying how ferrets (who have a similar respiratory system to humans) reacted to viruses. They wanted to see specifically if they could “mutate” a virus and make it transmittable through the air.

(Yes, they could, apparently).

The important thing to note here is that researchers made the COVID virus highly contagious – it didn’t start out that way. They muted it, so they could study highly contagious viruses in ferrets

Woman is left with a fractured skull after police blast her in the head with a water cannon and send her flying into a wall during Dutch lockdown riots – even though ‘she was not protesting’

A woman needed 15 stitches after being blasted in the head with a water cannon during Dutch anti-lockdown protests.

Footage filmed on a street in Eindhoven showed the moment that Denisa Stastna took the full force of a jet of water that was fired from a police truck on Sunday.

The Czech national was left with a fractured skull, more than 15 stitches in her head and an injured lip after the blast of water flung her against the side of a building.

She and her boyfriend claim they had merely been filming and were not taking part in the protests - but authorities say they should have left the area under an emergency order to disperse the crowds.
