Angela Merkel and the Destruction
of German Democracy

These thoughts reflect the writer's concern about the worsening political and social conditions in Germany, a nation whose importance — for America, Europe, and the world — should require no laboring to a readership of politically sophisticated Americans. What's happening today in Germany is deeply disturbing. And it's not for the reason casual American observers, including many conservatives, might think based on information derived from the mainstream English-language media. Contrary to these purveyors of globalist, multi-cultural propaganda, the reason for growing unease about Germany is not the presence in the German parliament (Bundestag), and persistent electoral strength, of "Die Alternative für Deutschland" ("The alternative for Germany," or AFD)

Comments:

This is well worth reading. IMO.
I am no expert on Germany, but hitchhiked around in the 70s and found many Germans to be extremely friendly. A number went far out of their way to show a young American their country and a good time for a day. And I found a beautiful countryside (in Bavaria, mostly). Recently visiting the Porsche factory museum, and the same for Mercedes, it was pleasant. And I have owned Porsches since the middle 1980s, lusted after them since the late 60s, when I drove VWs before I could afford Porsches.
I am dismayed that Merkel has the power to override local elections by just a wave of her hand, and orders that the election outcome is "unforgiveable" and "must be reversed". Imagine if Obama had the power to override a Texas election because the voters "elected the wrong people"?
How are Merkel's totalitarian actions materially different than Hitler was in his takeover?

Merkel came from East Germany, a communist country. When West Germany gobbled up East Germany, suddenly Merkel was seen as a savior similar to Hitler. Merkel has made Unified Germany basically into a unified communist country ruled by fiat. Can you just imagine all the voter fraud keeping her there? Demonrats are so envious and wish the USA was Germany.

It’s the importation of Muslims that is causing change. Angela Merkel thought the could replace with the Germans they abort with non-Westen peoples. This did not work because Muslims are different animals from German civilization. With Germany the entire European Global domination project is circling down the drain. Including Pope Francis the First.

I have visited at the windmills at the ridges of the Mosel Valley. You can feel the Earth shake under your feet. The noise is grave and will drive a sane person crazy. Enjoy, Germans, what your cowardice in war begot you. As you pay for The Paris Climate Agreement you will preside over the dissolution of the European Globalist project. May Brexit cast a long shadow on Germany so that we will not have to unconditionally defeat you again. The Muslims will do it for US.

First, Merkel was born in the West, then her family went to East Germany when she was little. IMO, this is even more suspicious since what would Merkel's family be doing going the wrong way? Second, Germany has been importing muslims (Turks) since the end of WWII. It was a necessity since the German male population had been decimated during the war. The problem is once German manpower reached sustainable levels, the Turks remained in the country. I remember in the 70s Turk areas of cities would just throw trash and sewage into the street around the nearest drainage grate. It's the first place I ever encountered the third world smell. I think Germans grew too accustomed to their own cheap labor model.

Germany is getting what it fully deserves. Socialism is nothing new in the West. Every town has its Karl-Marx-Strasse or Engels-Platz. It has been "trending left" since the Kaiser abdicated. The question is whether the Thuringians will vote differently. I am surprised that the usual shouts of "Nazi!" didn't stop Merkel's denouncement of a democratic result in a state election. We'll see how this works out. I'd like to think as Thuringia went to dump the "centrists", so will go the nation. Somehow, I don't think it will.

Denny Hamlin emerged victorious at the Daytona 500 on Monday night, winning the iconic NASCAR race for a third time, but it was overshadowed by a string of frightening crashes -- including a fiery wreck that sent Ryan Newman to the hospital. Newman flipped several times; his car ultimately crossed the finish line engulfed in flames.    Fortunately, his injuries were not life-threatening, according to NASCAR Executive Vice President Steve O'Donnell, who read a statement from Roush Fenway Racing Monday night.

A New York City man who’s now been arrested 139 times thanked Democrats for guaranteeing his immediate release despite repeatedly swiping hundreds of dollars from unsuspecting subway commuters since the state’s new bail reform law went into effect Jan. 1. Charles Barry, 56, has been arrested six times since the start of this year. He’s been released each time without having to post bail under New York’s new bail reform law since his alleged offenses were nonviolent, the New York Daily News reported. In the past, Barry’s served several stints in state prison and has a lengthy record, including six felonies, 87 misdemeanors and 21 missed court hearings,

The Justice Department said Friday it will not pursue criminal charges against former FBI deputy director Andrew McCabe, after a nearly two-year-long investigation into accusations brought by the agency's independent watchdog who claimed that he lacked "candor" when questioned about leaking to the media. In a letter to McCabe attorney Michael Bromwich obtained by Fox News, Justice Department attorney J.P. Cooney said the investigation is now “closed.” “We write to inform you that, after careful consideration, the Government has decided not to pursue criminal charges against your client, Andrew G. McCabe,’” Cooney wrote.

This isn’t your 2016 Bernie Sanders. Yes, he won New Hampshire. And yes, the PredictIt market has him winning every state on Super Tuesday. But the biggest takeaway from last night as far as the Bernie Sanders campaign goes is that he lost half his voter base from the last election. The question now is whether he can recover that and beat President Trump. Wall Street highly doubts it. It’s already celebrating, coronavirus be damned.
Assuming Sanders is begrudgingly nominated by the powers-that-be in the Democratic Party (he is an I-VT, in the DNCs mind), this is a man who has lost a significant part of the mojo he had

As desert locusts ravage African crops, EU-funded NGOs maneuver in the Kenyan parliament to leave farmers defenseless. Caught flat-footed by the emergency, the FAO struggles to purchase enough pesticides to avert catastrophe. Experts fear it may be too late to avert famine. The worst locust swarms in 70 years descended on East Africa barely a month ago and have already devoured hundreds of thousands of acres of staple crops throughout the region. Every day, the swarms grow larger and travel further into the African continent. As the crop losses mount, experts fear that this new plague, which is hitting African food systems already challenged by epidemic infestations of Fall Armyworm

A comment published last week in Nature, a leading scientific journal, has thrown a monkey wrench into hundreds of studies and media stories that previously predicted dire climate consequences in the future due to increased carbon dioxide (CO2) in our atmosphere. The consequences were predicted by a computer model called Representative Carbon Pathways (RCP), and the worst-case scenario model, RCP8.5, had been cited more than 2,500 times in scientific journals and in hundreds of media stories as the primary need for "urgent action" on climate. Predictions from the RCP8.5 model suggested maximum global temperature increases of nearly 6°C (10.8°F) by the year 2100, shown in Figure 1.

A day after a team of World Health Organization (WHO) medical experts arrived in China to help investigate the deadly coronavirus outbreak, the health agency’s director said the virus poses “a very grave threat for the rest of the world.” Over 1,000 people in China have died after contracting the virus, which has sickened over 43,000 others globally. Just under 400 of those cases have been confirmed in countries outside of China. “With 99 percent of cases in China, this remains very much an emergency for that country, but one that holds a very grave threat for the rest of the world,” WHO director-general Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus said

Minutes after Chief Justice John Roberts gaveled out President Trump's impeachment trial, which had consumed the Senate for almost three weeks, Majority Leader Sen. Mitch McConnell, R-Ky., got right back to what he's said is his top priority -- confirming judges. Less than half-an-hour after TV networks cut away from the Senate to dive into the ramifications of the body acquitting Trump, McConnell filed cloture on the nomination of Judge Andrew Brasher to the 11th Circuit Court of Appeals, a procedural step that moved the controversial nominee one step closer to confirmation. The body took the next step to confirming Brasher Monday by approving the motion with a 46-41 vote,

Charging that so-called "sanctuary" cities that protect illegal immigrants are jeopardizing domestic security, Attorney General Bill Barr announced a slew of additional sanctions that he called a "significant escalation" against left-wing local and state governments that obstruct the "lawful functioning of our nation's immigration system." Speaking at the National Sheriff’s Association 2020 Winter Legislative and Technology Conference in Washington, D.C., Barr said the Justice Department would immediately file multiple lawsuits against sanctuary jurisdictions for unconstitutionally interfering with federal immigration enforcement, and implement unprecedented national reviews of left-wing sanctuary governments and prosecutors.

A bill that would make Washington, D.C., the 51st U.S. state was approved by a Democratic-led House committee last week, setting the stage for a vote by the full chamber in the near future. If it passes, as expected, it will be the first time the campaign to bestow statehood on the nation’s capital has been endorsed by one of the chambers of Congress. Republicans in the Senate are expected to swiftly reject the bill, however, continuing a legacy of partisan sparring over the District of Columbia that has been going on for more than two centuries.

Former President Barack Obama appeared to take a rare political jab at his successor in a tweet Monday that cast aspersions on President Trump's claims that he deserves credit for recent economic gains, a key reelection platform for the 45th president. "Eleven years ago today, near the bottom of the worst recession in generations, I signed the Recovery Act, paving the way for more than a decade of economic growth and the longest streak of job creation in American history," Obama said, including with the tweet a picture of his signature on the 2009 stimulus package.
