More and more Germans are realizing the terrifying urgency of this age. To them, it’s time to stand up and fight!

Germany has been pushed to the brink. In 2014, it was about to pull Ukraine further from Russia’s orbit to form an alliance with the European Union.

Keep a close watch on Europe. Events are pointing to a dramatic change that will shock the world.

Strong leaders are rising on the world scene today in several nations, including Russia, China and Iran. But what about Europe? And what about Germany?
