Sweden has a population of about 10.5 million, about the same as North Carolina. It has long had a tradition of liberal immigration policy, but this has accelerated tremendously in the last three decades. Previously, the largest share of immigrants was from neighboring Northern European countries. This has changed dramatically.  From 2011 to 2021 Sweden received approximately 1.3 million immigrants, accounting for more than the population growth since 2011. More than 573,000 of these arrived during the Syrian War crisis years of 2014 to 2018. These mostly came from the Middle East, West Asia, and North Africa, and were predominantly Muslim. The estimated Muslim population of Sweden is now close to 6 percent. Close to 26 percent of the population is foreign born, and only 67 percent of Swedes were born of Swedish parents. One area of Sweden (Malmö, 325,000 population) is nearly 50 percent foreign born, and these are predominantly Muslim. Just over 6.5 million voters participated in the 2022 election, and over 200,000 of these were recent immigrants. The Muslim population has a strong affinity for voting for the Social Democrat Party or the Left (socialist) Party.

2022 Russian Invastion Of Ukraine Map

According to military consultant, retired Army Colonel Douglas MacGregor, on Friday, September 2, the Biden Administration asked Congress for another $11.7 billion in aid to support Ukraine in its war with Russia. $4.5 billion of this is for budgetary support of the Ukrainian government. Another $4.5 billion is to replace military equipment stockpiles being transferred by US Armed Forces to Ukraine. $2.7 billion is for defense and intelligence aid for Ukraine. The US continues to be the principal provider of military, financial, and intelligence aid to Ukraine. A substantial part of the military aid will be HIMARS multiple rocket launchers, M777 Howitzer artillery guns, and combat drones.

Combined Air, Rocket, and Artillery Attacks

On August 27, the Russian Federation Defense Ministry announced completion of major combined air, rocket, and artillery attacks against Ukrainian forces,  It was led by Russian Air Force bombing and major rocket and artillery forces bombardment on key Ukrainian military positions. The fact that the Russian Air Force led such a significant combined attack is strongly indicative that the Russians are launching a major campaign to defeat and drive out Ukrainian forces in Eastern and Southern Ukraine. All information in war is subject to emotional bias, distortion, and perpetrated deception. A Sherlock Holmes approach to interpretation is advised.

Inflicting Irreversible Damage on Teenage Girls

There is a social contagion of insane evil sweeping the United States, Canada, and much of the Western world, and it is inflicting irreversible harm on thousands of teenage girls and devastating their families.

In 2007, there was only one pediatric gender clinic in America. Today there are over 300. Clinical gender dysphoria (confusion) is real, but in the past it was  largely confined to young boys beginning at ages two to four.  This occurred in only one in ten thousand young boys and resolved itself without clinical treatment in over 70 percent of cases.  

Today, gender dysphoria appears almost exclusively among teenage girls,  a full two percent of teenage girls nationwide, most typically those having  social adjustment problems common among teenagers.  According to science and social journalist and author, Abigail Shrier, it typically occurs among groups of friends in the same school classrooms. The prevalence of this social contagion may reach 15 to 20 percent or  higher in some of the most vulnerable social and cultural school settings.  Social media platforms are significant channels of contagion, where trans activists, often not trans themselves, push the idea that starting a course of testosterone will solve their problems.  Dr. Lisa Littman of Brown University has termed the recent spike in transgender identification “rapid onset gender dysphoria,” an indication of mass social delusion.
