Angela Merkel’s longevity masks the disintegration of Germany’s political center

The economic data is staggeringly positive. Strong annual growth, a huge budget surplus and close to full employment. And even Berlin, the much-maligned “poor but sexy” capital city is finally prosperous. So how come Germany’s two main establishment political parties were barely able to cobble together half of the vote, between them, in last year’s federal election?

Merkel, Seehofer & Schulz named ‘worst German politicians’ of 2017 – poll

Germans have named their worst politicians of 2017. Angela Merkel, Horst Seehofer and Martin Schulz, who are struggling to form a ruling coalition, have scored the best of the worst, a new poll has found.

The results of the survey, conducted by the Kantar Emnid pollster on behalf of the Funke media group, was published by German media Thursday. Merkel, Seehofer and Schulz were named the three worst politicians of the year, spurred on by the inconclusive general election outcome in September which triggered a lengthy political crisis. All three 'losers' of the poll are, however, currently in negotiations to form a government. So far, all attempts to create a coalition have been in vain.

British PM Wants London and Brussels to Work Jointly to Resolve Security Issues

The 2018 Security Conference is under way in Munich, where British Prime Minister Theresa May is due to deliver a speech titled Road to Brexit: A Security Partnership.

In an upcoming address to world leaders attending the 2018 Munich Security Conference, UK Prime Minister Theresa May will tout a new UK-EU treaty on intelligence and security. She will also say that the safety of European citizens should not be jeopardized by "rigid institutional restrictions" and "deep-seated ideology."

"The challenge for all of us today is finding the way to work together, through a deep and special partnership between the UK and the EU, to retain the co-operation that we have built and go further in meeting the evolving threats we face together," according to May.

The demonstrators shouted slogans including "No to War," "Dismiss NATO," "There Are No Winners in War," according to the media reports.

Sub-Par: Not a Single German Navy Submarine is Seaworthy

Germany’s military hardware woes continue worsen: the German Parliament has announced that none of the German Navy’s submarines are in operational condition. The navy maintains six submarines, but accidents and wear and tear have rendered all of them unusable.

"It's a real disaster for the navy, it's the first time in history that there will not be any submarine operating for months," said Hans-Peter Bartels, parliamentary commissioner for the armed forces in the Bundestag, in an interview with Berlin newspaper Bild am Sonntag.

Bartels added that the primary culprit behind the crisis was a failure of the German military to maintain the subs and replace outdated equipment.

But Germany can build new ships and subs for Israel!

Undercover Israeli journalist travels to Germany as Syrian refugee to 'join' Islamists

Prominent Israeli journalist Zvi Jecheskeli, who went undercover as a devout Muslim, has revealed how easy it may be for Islamists to pass through Germany's borders and become a "Syrian refugee.”

Jecheskeli spent several years risking his life to film a documentary on the role and influence of the Muslim Brotherhood in the streets of Germany, France, Britain and Turkey. While the organization is legal in some countries and has affiliated political parties, its outlawed as a terrorist group in others, including Russia, Saudi Arabia and Egypt.

Infiltrating the ranks of the Muslim Brotherhood is a challenge indeed, as the group is “known for its distrust” of outsiders, whom they would “never” allow a glimpse into their plans, Jecheskeli told Die Welt.

Germany Building More Ships to Boost Israeli Maritime Missile Shield – IDF

Germany is building four ships to add to Israel’s sea-based missile shield called Iron Dome, according to a spokesperson for the Israel Defense Forces.

"A ceremony which marked the construction initiation of the Saar 6 Class Corvettes was held in Kiel, Germany. Four Saar 6 Class Corvettes will be integrated gradually into the Israeli Navy over the next three years," it was announced Wednesday on the official IDF Twitter account.

Israeli Navy Commander Aluf Eli Sharvit has described the German-build corvettes as key to the maritime missile shield.

The People Who Were Burned to Ashes on Ash Wednesday

It was Shrove Tuesday, 1945 in the magnificent German art city of Dresden, which was packed with helpless Christian refugees fleeing the Red Army of the Stalinist USSR. Dresden’s native Lutheran and Catholic children, dressed in their festive Saxon folk costumes, were aboard a train taking them home after Mardi Gras parties at different points in the far-flung city. Still merry from the night’s festivities, they cavorted on the train prior to Ash Wednesday, February 14, and the solemnities that would be observed even in wartime, in memory of the passion and death of Jesus. In the sky Allied fighter planes caught sight of the civilian train and opened fire on the children inside, whose blood was soon pouring out of the wreckage.

Germany has no budget for its elderly, but will spend 93 billion on migrants

We’ve heard a lot of stories from Germany’s elderly. Some have to pay thousands of euros a year on healthcare, amounts they either cannot pay or amounts that lead to family struggles.

It’s a crippling shame how Germany treats the people who reconstructed the country after World War II. Here is just one of many examples of how the country treats its elderly:

Angela Merkel not safe yet: SPD could REJECT coalition deal as poll ratings slide

German coalition CRISIS: Schulz to hand over the reins of SPD after shock resignation

Ms Nahles, 47, is the head of the SPD’s parliamentary group and is expected to become caretaker leader before she is confirmed as leader at the party conference.

Mr Schulz, 62, announced he would step down as leader of the party last week to become foreign minister under a new coalition with Angela Merkel.

But he has since withdrawn from the race to become foreign minister, after promising not to service in a Merkel-led government before the election, according to German publication Suddeutsch Zeitung.

The embattled leader of the SPD abruptly gave up plans to become its next foreign minister on Friday, hoping to shore up support among SPD members for a new coalition with Mrs Merkel's conservatives.

Court Rules Facebook Violates Users' Rights With Illegal Default Privacy Settings and Data Sharing

By Aaron Kesel

A German court has ruled that Facebook is breaching data protection rules with privacy settings that “over-share” by default and by requiring its users to give their real names, a consumer rights organization said, AFP reported.

According to German law, one’s own personal information can only be stored and used by a company who has an agreement from the individual...

German court rules Facebook is using personal data ILLEGALLY as consumer rights group claims the site 'hides default settings that are not privacy-friendly'

A German consumer rights group said on Monday that a court had found Facebook's use of personal data to be illegal because the U.S. social media platform did not adequately secure the informed consent of its users.

The verdict, from a Berlin regional court, comes as Big Tech faces increasing scrutiny in Germany over its handling of sensitive personal data that enables it to micro-target online advertising.

The Federation of German Consumer Organisations (vzvb) said that Facebook's default settings and some of its terms of service were in breach of consumer law, and that the court had found parts of the consent to data usage to be invalid.

'Disaster for the navy': Germany ‘running out’ of warships

A German defense official warned the country’s navy is running out of combat-capable vessels & will be unable to deploy overseas. He said that several frigates & auxiliary ships were already decommissioned due to their age.

“The Navy is running out of deployment-capable ships,” Hans-Peter Bartels, chief of the German parliament’s defense committee, told the Bild am Sonntag newspaper. He said that the problem has snowballed over time, because old ships were taken out of service but no replacement vessels were provided.

Bartels, an influential Social Democratic Party (SPD) MP, said that six out of fifteen frigates were already decommissioned, adding that “none of the new Type-125 frigates are able to join the navy.” Auxiliary ships suffered the same fate, with two German Navy replenishment vessels, ‘Berlin’ and ‘Bonn’, being sent for a 1.5-year refit.

Regime change? Germans call on Putin for Chancellor

The Evangelical Church of Germany (a union of Lutheran and Reformed communities, which today unites 25 million German Protestants) must rethink its "pro-Russian or anti-American sentiments," says Die Welt's observer for Eastern Europe, Gerhard Gnauk.

"The Evangelical Church is very politicized, this is often expressed in questions of social matters and world problems," writes Gnauk. "However, it's position regarding the war in Ukraine is that there is no position. On the website of the Church, there were hundreds of press releases over the past three years. In them, the Church spoke out about Iraq, the Philippines, Africa, the massacre of Armenians in 1915, Brexit and many other problems. Bishop Kessman traveled to Lebanon, Poland, the Sudan, the Balkans, all over the Middle East. And not one word was said on the account of Ukraine. "

German SPD Leader Turns Down Foreign Minister Post in New Cabinet

Martin Schulz, the leader of the Social Democratic Party of Germany (SPD), had previously decided he would accept the post of foreign minister in the country's new cabinet, counter to still earlier claims that he wouldn't do so, after the coalition talks with Merkel's CDU/CSU alliance succeeded.

Schulz has turned down the post of the foreign minister under increasing pressure from his own party, because of his earlier pledge that he will not become part of the cabinet headed by Angela Merkel.

"I hereby renounce joining the federal government and at the same time implore that this should be an end to debates about personalities" within the SPD, Schulz said in a statement.

German AfD Party to Set Up Newsroom in Spring to Bypass 'Fake News'

The parliamentary group of the right-wing Alternative for Germany (AfD) party is going to redirect its communication to its own newsroom scheduled to be launched in spring in order to avoid any misinterpretations of party's positions by mainstream media, AfD parliamentary leader Alice Weidel said Thursday.

"As long as the AfD is ignored by many media or deliberately targeted by fake news, there can only be this way," Weidel told the Focus magazine, commenting on the party's move.

Worries for tourism as huge hole in north German autobahn doubles in size

Experts from the State Office for Road Construction said in the autumn that they expected a further decline in the road’s condition, but they were unable to say when this would happen.

Peat deposits under the motorway have been identified as responsible for the collapse, but it is still unclear what exactly happened in the ground that led to the roadway sinking. Experts have speculated that the foundations of the road were too weak to support it.

Meanwhile, the timetable for the rebuild of the road has been published. A spokeswoman for the ministry said that construction companies can apply for the contract until February 22nd. The applications will then be evaluated over six weeks, before three bidders are asked to submit a more detailed plan. Within six weeks the successful bidder will then be chosen.

Transport Minister Christian Pegel (SPD) has said that the motorway will be completely restored by 2021.

Merkel, the eternal Chancellor now past her zenith

Angela Merkel has survived multiple crises but her obstacle-strewn path to a fourth term has prompted suggestions she is past her peak, leaving Germans to ponder life without the veteran chancellor.

After 12 years at the helm of Europe's biggest economy, the leader who is often called the world's most powerful woman is facing a battle for her political survival - and all she can do is wait.

Her hope of forming a new government now lies with some 460,000 rank-and-file members of the centre-left Social Democrats, who will vote on whether to approve a hard-fought coalition deal hammered out with her conservative bloc.

Organising the postal ballot is slated to take around three weeks, prolonging the uncertainty that has dogged Germany and drained Merkel's influence since September's inconclusive general election.

Here's why it is becoming ever harder to create stable German governments

If and when a German government is finally welded together, it will be more or less half a year since the election. With populist parties waiting in the wings, the future of German politics as we know it looks ever less certain.

On Wednesday afternoon, a mere 136 days after the election, Angela Merkel was able to announce that she had reached a deal with the Social Democrats to form a new grand coalition government. The deal still isn’t sealed though - we will now have to wait three weeks before it's put to a vote of the SPD membership.

Professor Stephen F. Cohen: Rethinking Putin – A Critical Reading

Professor Cohen is right: the real Putin has absolutely nothing, nothing at all, in common with the pseudo-Putin the Western media presents to its infinitely gullible and zombified audience.

I do believe that Professor Cohen will eventually go down in history as the most intellectually honest and courageous Russia expert in the US. In the meanwhile, the West is still stuck in its old, ideological ways: imperialism, nationalism and messianic exclusivism on one hand, and a complete surrender to post-modernism, cultural self-hatred, petty minority politics and moral relativism on the other.

“IT’S TOO LATE FOR GERMANY”: GERMAN FEMINIST SJW ADMITS SHE GOT IT WRONG ON IMMIGRATION, PLANS TO EMIGRATE FOR HER RETIREMENT

…”I thought their medieval view was going to change with time…but after having seen these situations occur repeatedly and observing what was happening around me, as a volunteer, I have had to recognise that the Muslim refugees have grown up with values that are totally different, they have undergone brainwashing from childhood on and are indoctrinated by Islam and absolutely do not intend to adopt our values. Worse, they regard we infidels with disdain and arrogance.”

“It was a jarring perception when I noticed that these people I had helped, who were eating, drinking, dancing and laughing with me, who didn’t pray, who didn’t go to the mosque, who didn’t respect Ramadan, who made fun of religion and deeply religious people, called me ‘the stupid German whore’ when they were eating my food and were in my garden.”

German Coalition Gov't Deal to Speed Up 'Downfall' of CDU/CSU, SPD Parties - AfD

The coalition government deal reached by the CDU/CSU union and the Social Democratic Party of Germany (SPD) earlier on Wednesday will only speed up the decline of the three participants and boost the right-wing Alternative for Germany (AfD) party, the AfD spokesman, Joerg Meuthen, told Sputnik.

Germany's two largest parties, the union of the Christian Democratic Union of Germany and the Christian Social Union in Bavaria and the SPD, each saw the number of their seats in Bundestag go down at the latest parliamentary election in September, following the previous so-called Grand Coalition government, while the AfD, a Bundestag first-timer, became the third largest force in the German parliament with 94 seats out of 709.

Germans Increasingly Opposed to Sanctions Against Russia - AfD Party Lawmaker

Ordinary German people are increasingly taking a critical attitude toward EU sanctions against Russia, a member of the North Rhine-Westphalia state parliament, Christian Blex, said Tuesday.

A group of German lawmakers from three regional parliaments arrived in Crimea on Saturday and are set to stay there until February 9. The delegation consists of Alternative for Germany (AfD) party members.

"The ordinary people are gradually more critical toward anti-Russia sanctions, and we have seen recently, especially in the eastern German states, that more and more criticism is taking place," Blex told reporters.

Germany Takes the Lead in Breaking EU Rules

The largest country of the European Union has found itself holding first place as the most frequent violator of the union's rules. While Germany is in the proverbial pillory in Brussels with 74 cases, the opposition is calling the country's leadership to account.

The image of being at the helm of Europe, which Germany has held for many years, is now overshadowed by numbers provided by the country's economy ministry upon the request of the Green Party. As the German news outlet Handelsblatt reports, 74 cases have been opened against the largest EU economy for breaking the union's regulations. This is 20% more than Germany faced in 2013, when the new coalition government with the Christian Democratic Union (CDU) and the Socialist Party of Germany began its term.

German Pro-Refugee Feminist Says She Was Wrong On Immigration, Plans to Emigrate to Poland

In 2012 Rebecca Sommer founded the refugee aid association Arbeitsgruppe Flucht + Menschen-Rechte (AG F+M) [Working Group Asylum + Human Rights]. At the end of 2015, this artist, photographer and journalist and documentary maker applauded Angela Merkel’s decision to open German’s borders to the “refugees” who had been blocked in Hungary, despite the vacuum effect this would create. “At that time I wanted to help everyone and truly believed that all these people were fleeing hell and were in a state of complete distress,” the German activist explained in an article published by the conservative Polish weekly Do Rzeczy on 15 January, discussing how she woke up to reality.

Why has an Israeli Nazi-hunter embraced Germany’s neo-Nazis?

While the Israeli government continues to feign outrage at Poland’s law tacitly protecting Holocaust revision and denial, modern-day Nazi politicians and their Israeli colleagues continue to tighten their embrace.

In the latest incident exposing their ideological affinities, Rafi Eitan, the Mossad agent credited with capturing the leading Nazi Adolf Eichmann in 1961, recorded a video praising Alternative for Germany, the neo-Nazi party that surged to almost 100 seats in Germany’s general election last September.

Almost 100 Attacks Against Christians Registered in Germany in 2017 - Report

The success of Germany’s multiculturalism policy has been questioned after statistics from the German Federal Police Office appear to show that a traditional Christian state is no longer a safe place for the believers.

The number of crimes targeting Christians in Germany reached nearly 100 cases last year, according to a report by the Federal Police Office. These stats have been gathered for the first time after a demand by the country’s Ministry of Internal Affairs and its head Thomas de Maizière after several notorious cases.

A homicide, grave and minor bodily injuries and arson are listed in the dossier. In a quarter of attacks churches and Christian symbols were hit and damaged. The murder case in the report is the one in Bavarian Prien am Chiemsee in April 2017, where a failed Afghan asylum seeker is said to have stabbed to death an Afghan Christian convert woman in front of her children.

“La GroKo allemande,” a headline in France’s Libération declared, is “the chance for Macron’s Europe.”

WATCH: German Women Launch Campaign Highlighting Increased Violence Against Women as a Result of Mass Migration

A group of German women have launched a campaign called #120db to lend a voice to women who have been physically or sexually attacked as a result of mass migration policies.

The group, which calls itself 120 Decibels after the sound intensity of rape alarms, launched a video this week in which several members list the names of recent victims of violence committed by asylum seekers.

The women in the video reference the recent case of a young girl called Mia, who was stabbed to death by her former asylum seeker boyfriend in the German city of Kandel, as well as Maria Ladenburger, who was raped and killed allegedly by migrant who lied about being underage, and 11-year-old Ebba Akerlund, who was torn in half after being struck by a lorry during the Stockholm terror attack last year.

Bundeswehr breakdown: What’s gone wrong for Germany’s army?

The Bundeswehr, one of NATO’s largest militaries, is now a steady source of news about planes that can’t fly, tanks that break down and troops that admire the Nazis. So what exactly has gone wrong in Germany’s army?

It emerged last week that the German military can’t find enough money to fund a long-awaited modernization of its newest Puma infantry fighting vehicles – which to many didn’t exactly come as a surprise.

Indeed, the news added to a steady stream of stories describing how poorly the Bundeswehr is performing, both in peacetime and during overseas deployments in conflict zones. Local newspapers are full of accounts about combat aircraft that lack vital parts or suffer technical failures, tanks and armored vehicles that can’t operate, or soldiers that sympathize with the Third Reich and its armed forces, the Wehrmacht.

USA wants to bury Nord Stream 2 project in Europe, but not in Germany. Russia tells the constantly complaining Poland to source its own gas

Washington does not stop its attempts to bury the Nord Stream-2 gas pipeline project, which is supposed to transport Russian gas to Europe bypassing Ukraine. US Secretary of State Rex Tillerson said during his recent visit to Poland that the Nord Stream 2 project represents a threat to the overall security and stability of Europe in the field of energy policy, because the project is part of Russia's plan to monopolise energy supplies. The US Secretary of State made the statement in the Polish capital, and it was not accidental. Polish Prime Minister Mateusz Moravetsky is an ardent adversary of the project. Washington's motives are also understandable: the US is striving to reduce Europe's dependence on Russian natural gas to increase exports of its liquefied gas to the countries of the Old World. Recently, however, ten countries in the EU Council advocated the adoption of a directive that could block the construction of the Russian gas pipeline.
