  • Senators in Bipartisan Push to Block F-16 Sale to Turkey, Unless It Relents on NATO Admissions

    President Biden’s plan to sell F-16 fighter jets to Turkey faced another potential roadblock on Thursday when 27 U.S. senators, most of them Democrats, informed him in a letter that if Ankara does not stop blocking Sweden and Finland’s entry into NATO, Congress will not support the sale. “Congress cannot consider future support for Türkiye, including the sale of F-16 fighter jets, until Türkiye completes ratification of the accession protocols [for the two countries’ admission into NATO],” wrote the senators. Sweden and Finland last year applied to join the transatlantic alliance, jettisoning long-held neutrality in response to the Russian invasion....

    Hunter Biden’s monthly rent of $49,910 matches a rental deposit at the House of Sweden related to the Biden family business venture with the infamous CEFC China Energy Co. Hunter’s $49,910 deposit also matches the amount of money he logged on a 2018 background check document unearthed by the New York Post’s Miranda Devine. In an email on October 13, 2017, Cecilia Browning, the general manager of House of Sweden, an office complex in Washington, DC, emailed Hunter about a lease that Hunter and his Chinese business partners were trying to terminate, according to emails unearthed from Hunter’s “Laptop from...

    Underwear giant Victoria's Secret has been shaken by controversy because of its politically correct campaigns with obese feminists. Now the Swedish business has gone bankrupt, reports Ecommerce. The company Amarla Retail AB, which runs the Swedish company, has been hit with significant loss figures lately according to Ehandel. The stores in the Mall of Scandinavia, the Galleria in Stockholm and Femman in Gothenburg will be open for a while. Bankruptcy manager Lars Lundberg says the plan is to "try to keep the stores open and maintain sales as before, but now under the hat of the bankruptcy estate".
  • Sweden finds Europe’s largest deposit of rare earth metals, which could become ‘more important than oil and gas’

    Swedish mining company LKAB discovered one million metric tons of rare earth oxides, which are used in electric vehicles and wind turbines. CEO Jan Moström said it was good news for Europe, which imports 99% of its rare earth elements from China. State-owned Swedish mining company LKAB said it has found what it believes to be Europe’s largest known deposit of rare earth elements. However, the company said the road to mining would be “long,” with an exploration license still to be submitted and several more years of exploration needed to discover the full extent of the deposit. “If we...

    The beginning of the end of Europe’s dependency on China for precious rare earth materials may lie buried deep under the rugged reaches of northern Sweden, well above the Arctic Circle. Sweden’s iron-ore miner LKAB said Thursday it has identified "significant deposits" in Lapland of rare earth elements that are essential for the manufacture of smartphones, electric vehicles and wind turbines. The government-owned company that mines iron ore at Kiruna, almost 1,000 kilometers north of Stockholm, said there are more than 1 million tons of rare earth oxides....

    Sweden is to reinstate formal civil duty that will see people conscripted into municipal rescue services in time of war. According to news site SVT on Monday, January 9 the announcement was made by Prime Minister Ulf Kristersson (M), Defence Minister Pål Jonson (M) and Minister of Civil Defence Carl-Oskar Bohlin (M) at a press conference entitled People and Defence in Sälen. Kristersson said: “We are going back to a situation where we have a formalised civil duty,” which according to Bohlin is the first step in preparing people with rescue service expertise. He said: “We don’t know exactly how...
  • Sweden, Turkey not expected to back down in NATO accession tug of war

    Sweden said on Sunday that Turkey is asking for too much in exchange for allowing it to join NATO, as Ankara effectively demands the impossible – that Stockholm override a decision by its own Supreme Court. But analysts say Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan is unlikely to retract its condition, at least not before the all-important presidential elections scheduled in June. Sweden’s new conservative Prime Minister Ulf Kristersson said that, as far as he is concerned, Stockholm has done enough for Ankara. “Turkey confirms that we have done what we said we would do. But they also say that they...

    Three bishops in the Lutheran Church of Sweden say to refuse to ordain a priest who sees marriage as a union between one man and one woman. The bishops respond to a survey by the Swedish newspaper Syre. They indicate that they do not accept that people who oppose same-sex marriage become priests in the Church of Sweden, Varlden Idag reports. EmployabilityAndreas Holmberg, a bishop in Stockholm, writes in an e-mail to Varlden Idag that he would not ordain a priest who is clear about not ordaining same-sex couples.

    On this date in 1573, the Swedish commander of Weissenstein (present-day Paide, Estonia), Hans Boije af Gennäs was executed when his fortress was overrun by Russian troops, during the Livonian War. A walled city with a Teutonic Knights-built keep, Weissenstein sat at a crossroads in interior Livonia and changed hands several times during this decades-long multilateral conflict involving Russia, Sweden, Denmark-Norway, Poland, and Lithuania — the latter two of which united into a Commonwealth during the war. Big picture, the Livonian War ran from 1558 to 1583; the stakes were, as one might guess, control of Livonia — essentially, the...
  • Sweden has the lowest excess mortality rate after the pandemic, despite refusing to lock down

    Serious holes have been poked in the world’s response to the pandemic, with Sweden emerging atop a telling list of nations least affected by Covid-19. In a list of countries studied by the Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development, the Scandinavian nation ranked lowest for overall cumulative excess deaths from 2020-22 at 6.8 per cent, compared to Australia (18 per cent), the UK (24.5 per cent) and the US (54.1 per cent). The results are even more poignant considering Sweden was one of the few developed nations that opted against widespread lockdowns. As governments scrambled to make the idea of...

    As the Biden administration and deeply ideological publications such as the New England Journal of Medicine push for treating children with gender dysphoria with nothing but affirmation — and castigate mental-health treatment for gender dysphoria, considering it equivalent to “conversion therapy” — less politicized institutions in other liberal societies are hitting the brakes. Sweden’s national board of health just updated its guidelines on the care of children with gender dysphoria, and “caution” is its new watchword. It declares that extended psychosocial explorations are key. From its announcement (Google translation): Young people suffering from gender dysphoria need to be able to...

    A Swedish zoo said Thursday it had to shoot dead three chimpanzees after they escaped from their enclosure, with the situation still not under control. A fourth primate was injured by gunshot, according to the company that runs the Furuvik Zoo around 200 kilometres (125 miles) north of Stockholm. "A chimpanzee is considered a high-risk animal. If this kind of animal gets out into the zoo, it can pose a threat to people's lives", Annika Troselius, a spokeswoman for Parks and Resorts, told AFP. Five of the zoo's seven chimps managed to escape from their enclosure on Wednesday shortly after...
