Merkel in TURMOIL: Chancellor insists her tactics work as leader QUITS over election

Mrs Merkel’s CDU party had its worst parliamentary election result since 1949 in the September poll, as well as experiencing devastating losses in regional votes.

However the German Chancellor has doubled down, claiming: “I do not see what we should do differently.”

The general secretary of the CDU’s Bavarian sister party, the CSU, has made equally oblivious comments, claiming the Austrian election results show “that elections can be won right from the middle” - despite huge gains for the right in both Austria and Germany.

Meanwhile the CDU regional president of Saxony has stepped down after especially disastrous local election results.

Tarred and feathered, lynched in the street and locked up in internment camps: The tragic plight of Germans in AMERICA during the First World War

A fascinating collection of photos have resurfaced showing the hardships faced by German-Americans at the brutal height of the First World War.

As Europe was ravaged by fighting, German immigrants in the US suffered harassment, internment, lynchings - and even the humiliation of being tarred and feathered.

Although a little-remembered part of history today, America was wracked by the fear and paranoia that swept from coast to coast during the Great War.

Wounded and weakened, Merkel starts coalition talks with awkward partners

Chancellor Angela Merkel, damaged by poor election results, will from Wednesday seek to forge an unlikely governing coalition from a motley crew of parties that span the political spectrum.

Merkel's conservatives, who won a September 24th vote without a clear majority, will hold exploratory talks with the liberal and pro-business Free Democrats (FDP) from 12pm and then the left-leaning and environmentalist Greens from 4.30pm.

To avoid a breakdown that would force new elections, all sides will in coming weeks have to hammer out tough compromises on thorny topics from immigration to EU reform and climate policy.

German neo-Nazi convicted of Holocaust denial _ again

A well-known German neo-Nazi has been convicted again of Holocaust denial and sentenced to six months in prison. Ursula Haverbeck was sentenced at a Berlin district court Monday for saying at a January 2016 event in the German capital that the Holocaust didn't take place and that there were no gas chambers at the infamous Auschwitz death camp.
Note: Fact check. There were no homicidal gas chambers but there was a swimming pool, soccer field, orchestras, brothel, theaters.

Catalonia: What’s Next? – Justin Raimondo

Spain’s repression has failed.

While the elites are pushing an agenda of centralization, and concentrated power, the worldwide trend is actually going in the opposite direction, toward decentralization and self-determination.

At a time when supra-national bureaucracies and globalist initiatives are being foisted on ordinary people, the Catalan people are rising up and taking their destiny into their own hands.

British MP Joins Calls for Germany to Pay Billions in Second World War Reparations to Poland

The hopelessly corrupt structure of the Eurozone & the Eurogroup

Follow the money. The Eurogroup rules the Eurozone and its 19 member states. The first rule of Eurogroup is: ‘You don’t talk about Eurogroup!’

Part of the problem of criticizing the “pan-European project” is that you have multiple bodies which overlap. And you also have some nations which are part of one, but not another. Or which pay into one body, but abstain from another.

A clear analysis is needed of the most important part of the pan-European project: the Eurozone. The Eurozone is the most important because it controls the money in the world’s largest macro-economy.

Is Germany as well: Bavaria - to leave or remain the question now?

Do you really think that the Catalans and the Basques in Spain, or the Corsicans in France, will always suffer that they are ruled from Brussels by "tailoring" and taking money? Or imagine, for example, that a German government is at the head of some of the Brussels government? Well, that would smash Europe!
Germany has its equivalents to Catalonia - in the extreme, at least in economic terms. But how likely is the Catalan scenario?

Champions League in Independence: Bayern holds the fist of Barsi

"Should I stay or should I go?" (Whether to leave or to stay) - this verse from the hit of the punk band "Klech" embodies the issue raised in a referendum last week in Catalonia:

"Stay or go?"

Ninety percent of Catalans voted for secession from Spain. The Spanish Government does not recognize the results of the vote. Can a similar referendum be held in Germany?

Railfan captures pictures of US tanks crossing Germany by the trainload: officials are saying nothing

Reichenbach: A train laden with tanks rolled through the Vogtland in the direction of Dresden or Leipzig on Thursday between 9 and 10 o'clock.

Though news of conspicuous train movements usually get around among the railfans and hobby photographers along the route, it was different this time.

The homeland researcher and author Gero Fehlhauer was out for a stroll and accidentally witnessed the train's entrance to Reichenbach and photographed it with his cellphone.
Fehlhauer wondered that he wasn't running into the usual railfans. "Perhaps the tank train was unpublished this time," he says.

‘World will change’: Trump likely to pull out of Iran nuclear deal next week – German FM

Germany’s foreign minister has expressed concern that US President Donald Trump is “likely to quit” the Iranian nuclear deal next week. Germany along with other EU states has been a staunch supporter of the agreement brokered by Barack Obama’s administration.

Breaking the 2015 nuclear agreement with Iran, also known as the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA), is a great concern to Germany as it brings new risks to international security and effectively would change the world, German Foreign Minister Sigmar Gabriel said Sunday.

Schauble Out as German FinMin Paves the Way for Lifting Russian Sanctions

The news hit the wire this morning that the first casualty of Sunday’s German elections is Finance Minister Wolfgang Schauble. Coalition talks between Chancellor Angela Merkel and both the Free Democrats (FDP) and the Greens led to this.

Merkel’s weak showing forced this change. Christian Lidner, head of the FDP, has been angling for the finance minister job during this entire election season. He has also, along with former SDP head and current Finance Minister Sigmar Gabriel, been an outspoken advocate of normalization of relations with Russia.

“We have to get out of the dead-end sitution,” Lindner told the Funke Mediengruppe newspaper chain. “To break a taboo, I fear that we must see the Crimea as a permanent provisional arrangement, at least for now.”

Germany investigating 2 former SS death squad members

BERLIN – Two suspected members of Adolf Hitler's mobile "Einsatzgruppen" death squads identified by the Simon Wiesenthal Center have been tracked down by German reporters but deny participating in wartime massacres.
One suspect, 94-year-old Kurt Gosdek, told broadcaster ARD's Politikmagazin Kontraste program that he was part of a special SS unit in Einsatzgruppe C in Ukraine in 1941, but had worked behind the lines repairing vehicles.
Herbert Wahler, 95, confirmed that his name was on the Einsatzgruppen roster, but refused other comment

How to Bring Down the Elephant in the Room

First, a painful, but needed, clarification:

Basement crazies. Neocons. Zionists. Israel Lobbyists. Judaics. Jews. Somewhere along this list we bump into the proverbial “elephant in the room”. For some this bumping will happen earlier in the list, for others a little later down the list, but the list will be more or less the same for everybody. Proper etiquette, atleast in the West, would want to make us run away from this topic. I won’t. Why? Well, for one thing I am constantly accused of not discussing this elephant. Furthermore, I am afraid that the role this elephant is playing is particularly toxic right now. So let me try to deal with this beast, but first I have to begin with some caveats.

Just as in the case of the Russian military police unit recently attacked near Deir ez-Zor, the Russians are accusing the Americans of being behind this attack. To make things even worse, the Russians are now also officially accusing the Americans of actively collaborating with ISIS:

Voter Fraud detected in the German election

They are stating that the AFD party got 0.0% of the votes in a district, in which the districts next to it voted 18% and 24% respectively for AFD. They are stating how very strange it is.

Only a fool would think that vote fraud was not a big part of the last election in Germany. It also happened in the last USA election but Trump’s landslide overcame it.

The German Election: The West’s Nervous Breakdown Continues

Following Sunday’s nationwide parliamentary election here in Germany I can hear the mocking laughter of 1989’s ghost, echoing throughout Europe and around the world.

Merkel Defends Open Borders Migrant Policy After Election Shock

German Chancellor Angela Merkel defended an election campaign that left her conservative bloc in first place but significantly weakened as she embarked Monday on what could be a lengthy quest to form a new government.

Merkel said the success of a nationalist, anti-migrant party that finished third in Sunday’s election won’t influence her foreign, European and refugee policies. She once more defended her decision to let in large numbers of migrants, saying Germany wouldn’t again face the humanitarian crisis that let to it.

2017 German Parliament Elections: A View from Russia

The main result of these elections is undoubtedly the relative failure of the three major parties, the Christian Democratic Union, Christian Social Union, and Social Democratic Party. The 2017 parliamentary elections are the worst in history for the oldest German party, the Social Democratic Party, and for CDU/CSU the smallest margin since 1949. Although the CDU/CSU bloc has kept its position in parliament as the biggest faction, its leader, Angela Merkel, has not hid her disappointment, admitting that she hoped for a better outcome for her bloc.

Major parties face heavy election losses, as Germany shifts to the right

A poll published by public broadcaster ZDF on Friday shows that both the major parties are likely to suffer major losses, while the small right-wing parties are on the rise.

The ZDF Politikbarometer poll shows Angela Merkel’s Christian Democrats (CDU) on 36 percent support, with the Social Democrats (SPD) on a miserable 21.5 percent.

Germany’s two largest parties have been united in a “grand coalition” since 2013, a fact which appears to have led to an erosion in support for both of them.

Why German parties are flyering and advertizing in languages from Russian to English

With so many voters apparently still undecided about who to pick on Sunday, parties have taken to advertizing in several languages, desperate for every vote they can get.

When readers in Germany opened their newspapers earlier this month, they likely weren't surprised to see a full-page campaign advertisement from Chancellor Angela Merkel. The country’s Bundestag elections are, after all, this Sunday.

But if most Germans had started to read the advert, they would have found the text unintelligible. Merkel’s message to voters was written in Turkish, and was printed in Öztürk – a monthly newspaper for Turkish Germans.

Published on Sep 22, 2017SHOW NOTES AND MP3: https://www.corbettreport.com/?p=24001

In the early 20th century, the world’s dominant superpower looked warily on the rise of a competitor to its supremacy. The machinations of the British to contain the rise of Germany led inexorably to the First World War. Once again in the early 21st century, the world’s dominant superpower is looking warily on the rise of a competitor. Will the American Empire’s machinations to contain the rise of China lead to the Third World War? Or is the American/Chinese conflict another engineered conflict for the benefit of the few at the expense of the many?

Merkel booed on final day of campaign rallies in Munich (VIDEO)

Two days before German federal elections, Angela Merkel, who is going for a fourth term as Chancellor, found her closing campaign rally in Munich crashed by right-wing protesters, who booed and heckled her for half an hour as she made her speech.

The loud heckling and whistling was audible on RT Ruptly’s live feed from the Friday rally even before Merkel began to speak, and the organizers eventually had to raise the mic’s volume. This did not prevent the German leader from giving her prepared 30-minute speech, but she added an improvised detail as an opening remark to her opponents.

“With whistling and yelling, one will surely not shape Germany’s future,” Merkel told the protesters on the last day election campaigning is allowed to take place.

Tillerson State Dept. Demanding Israel Hand Back Millions in U.S. Military Aid

Secretary of State Rex Tillerson has been pushing the Trump White House to demand that Israel give back to the United States millions of dollars in military aid, prompting pushback in the West Wing and further fueling ongoing tensions between Foggy Bottom and the White House over a range of key diplomatic issues, according to multiple sources briefed on the situation.

The Washington Free Beacon first reported on Friday that the State Department has been lobbying the White House to call for Israel to hand back some $75 million in U.S. military aid that was awarded to the Jewish state above the Obama administration’s financial request in 2016.

The Bombast of Nikki Haley

She’s a lightweight, and a warmongering globalist.

As Governor of South Carolina, and a member of that state’s House of Representatives, Haley’s foreign policy experience is absolutely nil. Nor does her degree in accounting from Clemson University inspire confidence. Her record thus far has consisted of giving voice to the neoconservative tendency in the GOP – the very people Trump defeated in the GOP primaries. The conventional Republican foreign policy clichés we’ve heard for years pour forth from her mouth like vomit from a drunk. Her recent speech before the American Enterprise Institute on the nuclear deal with Iran is a perfect case in point.

America’s Jews Are Driving America’s Wars

We don’t need a war with Iran because Israel wants one and some rich and powerful American Jews are happy to deliver. Seriously, we don’t need it.

They have been very successful at faking the Iranian threat, so much so that nearly all Republican and most Democratic congressmen as well as much of the media seem to be convinced that Iran needs to be dealt with firmly, most definitely by using the U.S. military, and the sooner the better.

And while they are doing it, the issue that nearly all the Iran haters are Jewish has somehow fallen out of sight, as if it does not matter. But it should matter.

As the clock ticks down to elections Sunday, Germany's cyber defence nervously hopes it'll be third time lucky after Russia was accused of meddling in the US and French votes.

There would be nothing unusual about these posters, if it wasn’t for the photo of the Russian President Vladimir Putin and the text that reads “Vote Putin for Chancellor” right below it.

Angela Merkel embroiled in refugee scandal in huge blow days before German election

A LEAKED internal German government report appears to condemn Chancellor Angel Merkel for opening the country's borders to refugees without first gaining parliamentary approval.

The admonishment comes two days before she seeks a fourth term in power in Sunday's general election - with 20 percent of voters still undecided who they will support.

The report by the Bundestag Scientific Office - a team of non party political legal experts - stated it is the role of the Bundestag to decide on all "matters of essential relevance to the state".

Experts said the opaque diplomatic language used in it signals parliament should have had the final say on the matter "as the decision led to a change in the proportion of non-Germans to Germans in the country".

Influential news magazine Der Spiegel said: "Bundestag lawyers clearly see an unclear legal situation for the border opening.

"This is an explosive opinion on the refugee crisis shortly before the election."

Right-wing AfD party looks set to become Germany’s main opposition party in Sunday’s election as Merkel sees a fall in support following open-door migrant policy

The right wing Alternative for Germany, or AfD, may achieve a third-place finishin elections on Sunday, which would make it the lead opposition party in the next parliament.

It is a prospect viewed with trepidation by many in Germany. Chancellor Angela Merkel recently described heckling she received from members of the party during a recent election meeting as 'a kind of intolerance that is very, very difficult'.

Merkel is on course to win a fourth term in office, but her conservative Union bloc is predicted to fall short of the 41.5 percent support they won in 2013.

Sure, the Americans talk a lot, but at least they are doing nothing. That paralysis, which is a direct consequence of the internal infighting, is a blessing for the rest of the planet

Collapse of Iran deal would send a 'terrible signal': Germany

German Foreign Minister Sigmar Gabriel has warned that any US move to scrap Iran's nuclear deal would discourage other countries from going to the negotiating table to discuss their nuclear activities.

A collapse of the accord, known as the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA), would send a “terrible signal” for other diplomatic efforts, Gabriel said on the sidelines of a UN meeting in New York on Thursday.

“What should motivate countries like North Korea or others to enter into negotiations in the future when the one example of such a deal is being destroyed?” he asked.

Gabriel: Germany will strive to save Iran nuclear deal

Germany will do all it can to persuade the United States not to abandon the Iranian nuclear agreement, whatever the outcome of German elections on Sunday, Foreign Minister Sigmar Gabriel said on Thursday.

Gabriel told reporters any US move to cancel the Iran deal and impose new sanctions on Tehran would discourage powers such as North Korea from negotiating an end to their own nuclear programmes.

Germany would work with the European Union, France, Britain and where possible China and Russia to press Washington to preserve the deal, under which Iran curbed its nuclear work in exchange for the lifting of sanctions, he said on the sidelines of a UN meeting in New York.

How the UN Covers for US Aggression

UN is not out to get the U.S. Rather, it has largely been America’s tool since its inception, it has repeatedly covered Uncle Sam’s overly-exposed butt as he (a.k.a. “the royal we”) has gone around the world on a three decade-long military bender since the end of the Cold War.

And therein lies the truly pernicious part of the Trumped-up case against the U.N. … because, like so much of America’s growing cult of grievance, it reflects an ever-widening gap between America’s stated ideals and its self-serving behavior around the world.

German federal elections are Sunday, September 24. The most likely outcome of the election is another “Grand Coalition” but it will be a much-weakened coalition. And If that coalition forms again, the rightwing AfD party is poised to become the largest opposition party.

As German election looms, attacks on AfD increase

As the German federal election is approaching, there is a sharp increase in attacks on Alternative für Deutschland (AfD) and its supporters.

The right-wing party is mostly being targeted due to its staunch opposition to Merkel's immigration policies.

On Saturday, around a dozen of camouflaged persons attacked a group of AfD campaigners in the German city of Rostock.

A 4-member campaign team that was promoting the local candidate Stephan Schmidt, was trying to put on posters, when it was attacked by five darkly dressed and partly hooded assailants that were carrying stones.

Removing Offensive Monuments

The eyesore presidential libraries

The social justice warrior charge to purge the United States of all monuments relating in any way to the Confederacy has been rapidly expanding to include the scourge represented by all white people all through history.

Now, I would suggest that turnabout is fair play so if we are all agreeing that monuments must be destroyed to right historic wrongs, I am interested in making up my own little list based on the things that I disapprove of. As readers of this site are aware, I am a critic of illegal behavior by the United States government, to include torture, targeted assassinations by drone and starting wars without any reason to do so, so that would be a good place to start.

A Letter to My American Friends

What would it take for you to switch sides and join the rest of mankind in what is a struggle for the survival of our species?

I asked you to name me a single successful US military intervention since WWII and you could name none. Good!

Did you notice that there was no Islamic State in Iraq before the US invasion?

I don’t think that millions of murdered people, including hundreds of thousands of children, are “mistakes” (how would you react it somebody conceded to you that Hitler and Stalin made “mistakes”?). But there is something even more insidious in this notion of “mistake”.

Germany Launches Probe After Pentagon's Syrian Arms Smuggling Story Goes Viral

The German government has opened a probe into an illegal Pentagon arms trafficking operation after a bombshell investigative report on the secret program went viral this week.

On Wednesday we reported on the continuing Pentagon arms pipeline to Syria which runs through Europe, the Balkans, and Caucuses, and which is based on a shady network of private contractors and altered US government paperwork. The Organized Crime and Corruption Reporting Project (OCCRP) and the Balkan Investigative Reporting Network (BIRN) produced conclusive evidence and internal memos proving that not only is the Pentagon currently involved in shipping up to $2.2 billion worth of (mostly old Soviet) weapons from private dealers to US-backed Syrian militants, but is actually manipulating paperwork such as end-user certificates in order to conceal the ultimate destinations of the weaponry (in this case Syria).

Brexit is already damaging Germany’s trade with the UK and it is set to get worse, according to the Association of German Chambers of Commerce and Industry.

But new research from the Cologne Institute for Economic Research (IW) has now revealed the drastic extent to which Germany could face economic disaster following Brexit.

According to the study, many German manufacturers are dependent on the production of goods abroad – with many partners being based in Britain.

In 2014 alone, the British supplied intermediate goods worth EUR 200 billion to the EU, of which 36 billion went to Germany.

Refugees welcome? Merkel flip flops on migrants as chancellorship at stake

Despite receiving thousands of asylum-seekers annually, Germany has been safeguarded by its geographic location and the Dublin agreement (which regulates asylum procedures in the EU), which left most refugees stranded in the EU’s coastal states, such as Greece and Italy. Berlin, however, began facing a new reality two years ago. As the migrant influx into Europe from the Middle East and North Africa gained momentum, the German chancellor announced a “humanitarian move,” opening Germany’s borders to migrants in August 2015.

AfD co-chair calls Merkel ‘pig & puppet of WWII winners tasked to keep Germany down’ – report

The co-chair of the populist Alternative for Germany (AfD) party has been widely condemned after the publication of an allegedly leaked email, in which she reportedly calls the German Chancellor a “pig tasked with keeping Germany down”.

Just weeks before the German parliamentary elections, Alice Weidel, who is also one of the two leading candidates from her party, found herself at the center of a high-profile political storm after the Die Welt daily published the email, in which she allegedly cynically questioned German sovereignty and accused the German government of deliberately instigating a civil war.

“These pigs are nothing other than puppets of the WWII Allied Powers tasked with keeping the German people down by instigating civil wars in the metropolitan areas by flooding them with foreigners,” Weidel allegedly wrote in an email to a confidant, referring to Angela Merkel and her government, as reported by Die Welt.

German hackers find security hole in software used for vote counts

Voting in Germany is done with pen and paper, and the results are counted by hand and then organised by computer. The hackers said while final results could not be changed, a false early result could easily be sent out, prompting chaos and confusion.

“First of all I thought this can’t be possible,” Tschirsich told hessenschau.de. “Trust in the election process could be destroyed if the official result was to differ significantly from the preliminary ones.”

He said he acted out of the need to protect the democratic process by informing the authorities of the vulnerabilities, which he believed could have been spotted by “even the most average” IT student.

The company that runs the software, vote iT, said it was working to fix the problems.

Tschirsich said he had gone to the media with his findings after being spurned by both vote iT and the electoral offices.

Germany’s HUGE export secret: The one economy fact Merkel does NOT want the world to know

There has been growing scrutiny over Angela Merkel’s nation’s trade surplus, which has provoked anger from the United States’ president, but the balance sheet for 2017 will add fuel to that fire.

Over the course of the year Germany will sell more across its borders than even they expected with reports claiming exports have hit a “breathtaking rate since the financial and economic crisis”.

While firms, employees and the treasury have all seen the benefit, anger is growing from trading partners over the burgeoning account surplus.

Germany disputes size of Russian wargames, predicts 100,000 troops

Germany said on Thursday that Russia was planning to send more than 100,000 troops to war games on NATO’s eastern flank this month, disputing Moscow’s version that only 13,000 Russian and Belarussian servicemen would participate.

The Sept. 14-20 exercises known as Zapad, or “West” in Belarus, the Baltic Sea, western Russia and the Russian exclave of Kaliningrad, are stirring unease in NATO despite Moscow’s assurances troops would rehearse a purely defensive scenario.

“It is undisputed that we are seeing a demonstration of capabilities and power of the Russians,” German Defence Minister Ursula von der Leyen told reporters at an EU defense ministers’ meeting in Tallinn.

“Anyone who doubts that only has to look at the high numbers of participating forces in the Zapad exercise: more than one hundred thousand,” she said in a joint news conference with her French counterpart Florence Parly.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Methinks Germany protests too much; and where in the world did she get that number of 100,000?!?

These Zapad exercises have been carried on by the Russians for a number of years; why the big panic now?!?

And BTW, why has NATO seen fit to envelop Russia's borders with NATO troops over the last several years?!?
