    STOCKHOLM — Swedish Crown Princess Victoria has tested positive for COVID-19 and is experiencing mild symptoms, the Royal Court said on Saturday, adding that the heir to the throne was fully vaccinated.Earlier this week her parents, the king and queen of Sweden, both also tested positive amid a mounting fourth wave of the virus, driven by the highly contagious Omicron variant, that has seen the country repeatedly report record daily case numbers. The Royal Court said in a statement that the crown princess, who is 44 and has contracted the virus once before , was isolating at home with her...
  • Sweden creates Swedish Psychological Defense Agency to combat disinformation

    Ahead of the country’s Sept. 11 general election, the agency was created on Jan. 1 to fight against disinformation and undue election influence, The Associated Press reported. “We defend our open and democratic society and free opinions by identifying, analysing and responding to inappropriate influences and other misleading information directed at Sweden or Swedish interests,” the agency’s website states. The group says it will “offer support to agencies, municipalities, regions, companies and organisations and contribute to strengthening resilience within our population.”

    Among other things, the essay suggested that white milk takes away the unique properties of black coffee, "domesticates", and "controls" it, making a point about "drink-based colonisation". The author of the essay went on to rhetorically ask readers "what on earth was happening to our bastions of education".

    Finland’s President Sauli Niinistö on Saturday reiterated his country’s right to join Nato if it wants to, in a dismissal of Russian demands for no further expansion of the Western military alliance near its borders. “Finland’s room to manoeuvre and freedom of choice also include the possibility of military alignment and of applying for Nato membership, should we ourselves so decide,” President Niinistö said in his New Year address. Last month Russian President Vladimir Putin sought guarantees that Finland would not join Nato. In a statement released by the Kremlin, President Putin said Russian wants “international legal security guarantees” ruling...

    (CNSNews.com) – The Kremlin has reiterated that it regards the further expansion of NATO into former Soviet countries as a “life and death” matter, but Moscow is also making clear that it objects to Sweden and Finland, nations that were not part of the USSR, joining the alliance. Ahead of talks with the West next month, which Russia hopes will result in a halt to additional NATO enlargement, Kremlin spokesman Dmitry Peskov told the Russia 1 television network on Sunday that the prospect of Ukraine, Georgia, or Moldova being admitted into NATO was a question of “life and death for...

    Earlier this month, Swedish Minister of Finance Magdalena Andersson delivered her maiden speech as head of the Swedish Social Democratic Party... “If you are young,” she said, “you must obtain a high school diploma and go on to get a job or higher education.” If you receive financial aid from the state, “you must learn Swedish and work a certain number of hours a week.” The Social Democrats now deploy the harsh language only far-right nativists of the Sweden Democrats party used in 2015... all major parties today stand for a restrictive migration policy with a strong focus on law...

    Last week, the world glimpsed a future in which vaccine passports are implanted under the skin. A viral video from South China Morning Post profiled a Swedish start-up hub, Epicenter, that injects its employees with microchips. “Right now it is very convenient to have a COVID passport always accessible on your implant,” its chief disruption officer, Hannes Sjöblad, told the interviewer. Oddly enough, he repeatedly spoke of chipping “arms” when we clearly see a woman opening doors with her hand. Two years earlier, Sjöblad told ITV, “I want us humans to open up and improve our sensory universe, our cognitive...

    Weren’t we just talking about Sweden’s Gävle goat aka Gävlebocken 2 weeks ago? Why, yes, we were.Unfortunately, Sweden's giant straw yule goat is like catnip for arsonists; it’s been torched again. The Gävle Goat spokesperson says she doesn't understand why people want to destroy it. I see her point, BLM doesn’t even have a field office in Gävle. A lot of people just shrug it off as part of the tradition. Socialists - of all colors and stripes – do seem to enjoy destroying tradition.Appropriately enough, this defaced statue stood in Druid ParkThe problem might be the Swedes commitment to...

    Swiss authorities in Zurich put Vladislav Klyushin, a Russian businessman widely noted for his Kremlin ties, on a flight bound for the U.S. on Saturday, ending a months-long extradition fight that cast a pall over this summer’s Putin-Biden talks in Geneva. Swiss reporters first confirmed Klyushin’s extradition Saturday night; the U.S. Justice Department on Monday said the 41-year-old, a top official at Moscow-based IT firm called M-13, would stand trial on charges of insider trading, citing information allegedly “stolen from U.S. computer networks,” netting “tens of millions of dollars in illegal profits.” The charges carry potentially decades’ worth of prison...

    Swedish Company Implants Covid Passport Microchips in Hands.. A Swedish company is making headlines by calling to mind a nightmarish image for Christians around the world. A video from the South China Post went viral Friday for showing the microchip technology recently introduced by the Stockholm-based startup, Epicenter. The company’s “chief disruptor” Hannes Sjoblad demonstrated how their product, the size of a grain of rice, has been adapted as a Covid passport, implanted under the skin in the arm or hand. Sjoblad said the company developed the tech for other purposes, but quickly realized it had potential for use as...
  • Young Swedish rape victim slapped with hate crime over illegal courtroom gesture

    "A young Swedish rape victim has been slapped with a hate crime after he responded to his victimizers mocking him in the courtroom with an illegal Nazi salute. Kenny Friberg, aged 21, has been convicted for incitement against an ethnic group after he responded to his foreign victimizers mocking him in the courtroom by standing up and giving the “Sieg Heil” salute, a widely reviled gesture that has been banned throughout much of Europe, Swedish news outlet Fria Tider reports. The incident took place earlier this month in a Malmö courtroom, during the trial of those who are accused of...

    Republican Sen. Lindsey Graham (S.C.) on Sunday said Democrats must "quit lying" about the cost of the Build Back Better Act and called for the House to revote on the massive social spending package. Appearing on "Fox News Sunday," Graham claimed that the electric vehicle tax credits included in the bill would exacerbate inflation and hurt companies like BMW and Volvo. Both companies have recently announced commitments to rolling out new electric vehicles, with Volvo aiming to be all electric by 2030.

    Sweden and Germany: No Deaths In Children Due to CovidThe decision by parents to vaccinate their child against Covid is really a question of risk management. Parents must seriously consider that Covid-19 is a less dangerous illness for children than influenza. It has shown to be so and quite stably near 20 months now. Children do not readily acquire this pathogen, spread to other children, spread to adults, take it home, get severely ill, or die from it. It is that simple. We know children tend not to transmit Covid-19 virus and that the concept of asymptomatic spread has been...

    Professors from Sweden’s Lund University are facing prosecution from the country’s Ministry of Education for their “ethics” behind a paper demonstrating how most rapes are committed by migrants. Professor Kristina Sundquist and her colleagues are under investigation by the Board of Appeal for Ethical Review, a body that reports directly to the Swedish Ministry of Education, over whether or not they had “ethical license” to handle “sensitive data.” The data in question relates to the identities of rapists in Sweden, which culminated in the paper “Swedish Rape Offenders — A Latent Class Analysis.” The published results reveal that immigrants are...

    Professor Kristina Sundquist, Lund University, Sweden and two of her colleagues are facing prosecution by the Board of Appeal for ethical review, a body that reports to the Swedish Ministry of Education. The reason behind the investigation initiated by the body is the research paper that was submitted by Sundquist that shows most rapes that happened in Sweden were committed by immigrants. The body would not investigate whether Sundquist and the co-author of the paper, Professor Ardavan Khoshnood, were given “ethical license” to handle “sensitive data” on the ethnicity of the criminals accused of rape in the country. Interestingly, the...

    Last week, a former Iranian judiciary official charged with war crimes in Iran testified in a Swedish court. The first person to date to face trial for the horrific 1988 massacre, Hamid Noury’s testimony offered revelations that laid bare Tehran’s vulnerabilities and revealed important insights into the regime’s domestic affairs. Noury, who is accused of participation in the massacre of more than 30,000 political prisoners in Iran in 1988, 90 percent of whom were members of a singular opposition movement – was arrested in Sweden in 2019. In heated exchanges with confused prosecutors, the defendant doggedly refused to speak the...

    Sweden’s new Schools Minister Lina Axelsson Kihlblom on Tuesday became the first transgender person to become a government minister in the Nordic country, a year after the appointment of Europe’s first transgender minister. The 51-year-old former school principal and lawyer was added to the Social Democratic government by Prime Minister Magdalena Andersson, who also became the first woman to hold that post. In her 2015 book “Will You Love Me Now?”, Axelsson Kihlblom described growing up as a girl in a boy’s body and her physical transition to a woman’s body, which was completed when she was 25. “Trans people...

    For the first time ever, significant light is being shed on one of the most horrendous human rights atrocities of the second half of the 20th century. In 1988, more than 30,000 political prisoners were senselessly massacred by Iranian officials. More than 30 years later, one of the people who participated in the massacre, Hamid Noury, is on trial in Sweden. The Noury trial should spark more media and public scrutiny about the 1988 massacre, and ultimately trigger a long overdue international investigation. Hamid Noury has been incarcerated in Sweden since November 2019 when he visited the country for personal...
