Germany’s Merkel to Voters: “No Change to Migration Policy”

No matter what you see in words (or EU deals) from German politicians, especially Merkel, the actions speak louder and are indicative of the true direction leadership is taking the nation — and Europe as a whole.

 

  • Chancellor Angela Merkel ‘s migration policy is causing security mayhem in Germany, where mostly Muslim migrants are raping and assaulting women and children with virtual impunity.
  • Merkel’s party was defeated in two out of the three federal states voting in March 13 regional elections. By contrast, the Alternative for Germany (AfD) — an upstart anti-establishment party campaigning against Merkel’s liberal migration policy — surged to double-digit results in all three states.
  • Political and media elites are ramping up a months-long campaign to delegitimize AfD voters as agitators, arsonists, far-right extremists, fascists, Nazis, populists and xenophobes.
  • Vice Chancellor Sigmar Gabriel has called on German intelligence to begin monitoring the AfD, presumably in an effort to silence critics of the government’s migration policy. Gabriel has called for Germany to take in even more migrants by airlifting them into the country directly from the Middle East.

German Chancellor Angela Merkel has vowed to continue her open-door migration policy — despite heavy losses in regional elections that were widely regarded as a referendum on that very policy. Continue reading

The Islamization of Germany in 2015

“We are importing religious conflict”

  • A mob of a thousand men of “Arab or North African” origin sexually assaulted more than 100 German women in downtown Cologne on New Year’s Eve. Similar attacks also occurred in Hamburg and Stuttgart. Cologne’s Mayor Henriette Reker, said that “under no circumstances” should the crimes be attributed to asylum seekers. Instead, she blamed the victims for the assaults.
  • “There is nothing wrong with being proud German patriots. There is nothing wrong with wanting Germany to remain free and democratic. There is nothing wrong with preserving our own Judeo-Christian civilization. That is our duty.” — Geert Wilders, Dutch politician, addressing a rally in Dresden.
  • “We are importing Islamic extremism, Arab anti-Semitism, national and ethnic conflicts of other peoples, as well as a different understanding of society and law. German security agencies are unable to deal with these imported security problems, and the resulting reactions from the German population.” — From a leaked government document, published by Die Welt.
  • Germany will spend at least €17 billion ($18.3 billion) on asylum seekers in 2016 — Die Welt.
  • Saudi Arabia is preparing to finance the construction of 200 new mosques in Germany to accommodate asylum seekers. — Frankfurter Allgemeine.

Germany’s Muslim population skyrocketed by more than 850,000 in 2015, for the first time pushing the total number of Muslims in the country to nearly six million.

Military Reforms Bolster Russian Army to ‘Unprecedented Levels’

This is precisely why Russia can claim such things as the ability and need to invade Europe as far as Poland within 30 minutes before NATO planes could even take off.

Meanwhile, on the Western front, the free world has lost a leader as the American military suicides itself and Americans continue to be sold New Lies for Old.

As Russia has been carrying out airstrikes in Syria on terrorist targets, launching strategic bombers, and holding operability tests every several weeks, the US has started to “beat the alarm” over the country’s defense capabilities, according to Der Spiegel.

United States Army in Europe Commanding General Ben Hodges said that he has “strong concerns” over the Russian air defense systems and anti-ship missile complexes which can deny access to larges swaths of areas. He pointed out that in case of conflict, Russia could create a defense zone over the Black Sea, keeping NATO away from Russia. Continue reading

Israel is working at speed to convert Boeing 767 into a long-flight refueling tanker

American sources point out that if Israel wants to retain the option of attacking Iran’s nuclear facilities when Barack Obama exits the White House in January 2017, it can’t wait for the brand-new US Pegasus tanker, which doubles as a military transport plane, to come off the Boeing production line and be delivered to its air force. The Boeing 707 in current service, after a multibillion investment in its conversion to a long-flight refueling tanker, no longer meets the fluctuating conditions in the Middle East. Work is therefore going ahead on the conversion of the Boeing 767 as its replacement. Continue reading

Ya’alon: Israel ‘not responsible’ for Iran nuke scientists’ lives

The point of no return has now been reached because of the nuclear deal and Israel is now left with no choice. What should be interesting to see in the near future is how the United States will defend Iran, as it’s now obligated by terms in the ‘deal’ to do so. A hostile Obama administration has also reportedly threatened to shoot down Israeli fighter jets to prevent a strike in the past.

 

Defense minister hints assassinations may resume, says Israel considering air strikes against nuclear facilities

Israel is not responsible for the lives of Iranian nuclear scientists, Defense Minister Moshe Ya’alon said in an interview published Friday, making a less-than-veiled threat that covert assassination missions blamed on Israel could resume.

As the world moves closer to ratifying a nuclear deal that Jerusalem says won’t keep Iran from obtaining a nuclear arsenal, Ya’alon told German newspaper Der Spiegel that Israel would do anything necessary in order to assure Tehran does not get atomic weapons, including taking military action.

Spiraling levels of violent crime perpetrated by immigrants from the Middle East and the Balkans are turning parts of Duisburg, a key German industrial city, into “areas of lawlessness” — areas that are becoming de facto “no-go” zones for police, according to a confidential police report that was leaked to the German newsmagazine Der Spiegel.

The report, produced by the police headquarters of North Rhine-Westphalia, the most populous state of Germany (and also the state with the largest Muslim population in Germany), warns that the government is losing control over problem neighborhoods and that the ability of police to maintain public order “cannot be guaranteed over the long term.” Continue reading

“Cash Is Coined Freedom”: War on Cash Becomes Official in Germany, Reaches G-7, Draws Withering Fire

It came from a voice that has, by law, the ear of the German government. Peter Bofinger is a member of the German Council of Economic Experts – the “Five Sages on the Economy” – which in its official function advises the government and parliament on economic policy issues. These folks are taken seriously.

So Bofinger told the German magazine Der Spiegel in an interview (full interview behind paywall) that cash should be done away with. Continue reading

Europe braces for David Cameron’s EU demands after Tory election win

PM receives congratulations from European centre-right leaders but German paper says Tory victory is bad news for Europe

The rest of Europe rubbed its eyes in astonishment at the stunning UK election outcome and braced itself for two years of gruelling negotiations over Britain’s future in the European Union.

Following 18 months of shadow-boxing and what senior diplomats in Brussels called the “phoney war” over David Cameron’s EU referendum gamble, the prime minister’s second-term mandate clears the air. He will now have to come clean on what concessions he hopes to win from the rest of the EU in order to keep Britain in the union.

“The ball is very much in the court of the UK now,” said a senior EU official. “It’s up to the British to define what they want.” Continue reading

Germans Are Paranoid that the US Is Spying on Their Data

The idea of personal data privacy is deeply ingrained in German culture. Germans even have a word for it: Datensparsamkeit, the principle of only collecting the bare minimum of data necessary.

In June 2014, the German Bundestag, or national parliament, canceled its internet-service contract with US telecom Verizon, opting to entrust its data to German company Deutsche Telekom, instead. The alleged tapping of Angela Merkel’s personal cell phone in Dec. 2013, has led the German chancellor to compare the NSA to the East German secret police, and German citizens remain outraged at the NSA’s actions in their country—just yesterday, Apr. 23, national news magazine Der Spiegel revealed (link in German) that the agency had monitored Western European businesses for more than a year.

The Fourth Reich, really?

 

Where does Germany stand in Europe? And are its downtrodden southern neighbours justified in comparing its current dominance to the dark days of Nazi rule? These are the questions that a group of journalists attempt to answer in a special enquiry for German weekly Der Spiegel. They draw from Germany’s troubled past to argue that Europe’s “reluctant leader” paradoxically considers itself both too big and too small to fulfil its current role:

The eurozone is clearly ruled by Germany, though Berlin is not unchallenged. It does, however, have a significant say in the fates of millions of people from other countries. Such power creates a significant amount of responsibility, but the [German] government and other policymakers nevertheless sometimes behave as though they were leading a small country.

Greece on the verge of default: flirting with Russia, quarrels with the EU

Petrakos told Spiegel that Greece wants “to deepen its relations with Russia in the energy sector” and get significant mutual benefit from this. The Greek delegation will talk to the Russian Minister of Energy, Alexander Novak, and the head of Gazprom, Alexei Miller. The periodical reminds that Gazprom controls about 70% of the Greek gas market. Continue reading

Deal-Breaker? Germany, NATO in First Open Conflict Over Ukraine Crisis

Normally it isn’t a big and considered business as usual, like the NSA spying revelations, since every country is doing it to another. The difference however, like the NSA spying ‘scandal’, is that the situation is way overblown. The intention behind this is to foment a split as it’s Germany’s desire to control the continent via its wanted EU Army.

Steinmeier, speaking on a visit to the US, said to Kerry at a joint press conference in Washington: “It is far too early to pat our shoulders and take pride in what we’ve achieved.”His comments come days after an official in German Chancellor Angela Merkel’s offices had complained of US Air Force General Philip Breedlove’s “dangerous propaganda” over Ukraine, and that Steinmeier had talked to the NATO Secretary General Jens Stoltenberg about him.
