German Chancellor Angela Merkel on Thursday rebuffed calls to reverse her welcoming stance toward refugees after a series of brutal attacks in the country.

Merkel, who interrupted her summer holiday to face the media in Berlin, said the four assaults within a week were "shocking, oppressive and depressing" but not a sign that authorities had lost control.

Armed police officers have launched a raid on a mosque and several homes belonging to a group believed to be radicalising Muslims in Germany.

Apartments belonging to eight board members of the radical German-speaking Islamic group DIK were searched by officers in Hildesheim, Lower Saxony.

It comes as part of a crackdown on the group, which is thought to have been encouraging people to travel to Syria and Iraq to join ISIS.

The group ran sermons, seminars and lectures entitled 'the hatred of infidels', according to German media.

Is Europe Doomed By Vassalage To Washington? — Paul Craig Roberts

World War II resulted in Europe being conquered, not by Berlin but by Washington.

The conquest was certain but not all at once. Washington’s conquest of Europe resulted from the Marshall Plan, from fears of Stalin’s Red Army that caused Europe to rely on Washington’s protection and to subordinate Europe’s militaries to Washington in NATO, from the replacement of the British pound as world reserve currency with the US dollar, and from the long process of the subordination of the sovereignty of individual European countries to the European Union, a CIA initiative implemented by Washington in order to control all of Europe by controlling only one unaccountable government.

With few exceptions, principally the UK, membership in the EU also meant loss of financial independence. As only the European Central Bank, an EU institution, can create euros, those countries so foolish as to accept the euro as their currency no longer have the power to create their own money in order to finance budget deficits.

Germany May Use Internal Army to Combat Terrorism As Europeans Told to “Expect Attacks” On a Daily Basis

Germany is preparing to use their internal army, as well as increased police forces, in the event of a large scale terror attack:

But attack after attack strains everybody’s ability to respond with the levels of emotion such atrocities demand.

In the previous week in Germany alone there has been a fatal machete attack, an axe attack on a train, a suicide bombing and a shooting rampage in a shopping mall.

Germany May Use Internal Army to Combat Terrorism As Europeans Told to “Expect Attacks” On a Daily Basis, by Mac Slavo

Mass murder and shocking acts of terrorism have become commonplace – and are happening on a daily basis now. The EU is facing an all-out war against foreign invaders who are picking off random targets and fueling chaos, and they are ready to institute a police state in desperate attempt to control it.

Things are getting quite serious.

As RT reported:

Webmaster's Commentary: 

The one thing European countries should be doing, in a concerted way, and with one very loud voice, is telling the US government that it MUST stop these horrific wars of conquest which are driving this massive influx of refugees in the first place.

And yes, these attacks are horrific and repugnant; but they are so random as to probably not be able to be controlled by ramping up a police state and martial law.

My answer to the question of "cui bono?", meaning, who benefits, who can effectively bend the narrative to fit their desired outcome, is very clear to me.

Martial law, as a way of controlling even the good, decent people in a country, is seen as very attractive by some leaders who know that their present and future programs will not be popular with the people who elected them.

And what better way to suppress domestic unrest at those policies than prevent the free and honest discussion of those policies ideas, or - horror of horrors - demonstrate peacefully against them?!?

These terroristic acts are just the excuse to invoke martial law; but the reason for the problem in the first place is the ham-fisted, pig-headed quality of American foreign policy, the authors of which never see a war they don't want to start in order to control resources to which they have no moral right.

GERMAN “OFFICIALS” CALL TO CHANGE CONSTITUTION AFTER MUNICH SHOOTING; MILITARY ON STREETS, GUN CONTROL

The bodies of the victims of Munich’s recent mass shooting barely cold, German “authorities” and politicians have wasted no time in calling for more police state measures and the further clamp down on access to gun ownership in Germany.

Bavarian Interior Minister Joachim Hermann is now pushing for going so far as to revise the German Constitution so that limits placed on using the military domestically can be removed, allowing the German military to be used inside Germany for “large-scale terrorist situations.”

The limits on Germany’s military were put in place after World War II and in response to Germany’s experience with the Nazi regime with all its excesses, totalitarianism, violence, and genocide.

Hermann stated that Germany is “an absolutely stable democracy” and, as such, Germans should be perfectly fine with having their military deployed on German streets.

Lady Michèle Renouf on Professor Robert Faurisson

Last month Professor Robert Faurisson faced a landmark trial in Paris, where Lady Michèle Renouf appeared as the sole defence witness. France is one of many countries where normal historical research is criminalised: this latest trial related to Prof. Faurisson’s speech at the Teheran International Conference 2006, (more than 3,000 miles from Paris and ten years ago!). Then French President Jacques Chirac insisted that a way must be found to prosecute the half-Scot, half-French Professor for his heretical investigation of the alleged mass murder of 6 million European Jews in presumed homicidal gas chambers.

In Signal to Military, Hillary Clinton Picks Senator Tim Kaine as Running Mate

In selecting Kaine, Clinton is making clear that she plans on running a right-wing, pro-war campaign targeted at winning over the military and sections of the Republican Party dissatisfied with Trump, and particularly with the Republican candidate’s attitude toward Russia. Clinton also wanted to repudiate any association with the issues of social inequality that motivated the widespread support for her main rival in the primaries, Vermont Senator Bernie Sanders.

Kaine is among the most hawkish figures among Senate Democrats. As governor of Virginia from 2006 to 2010, Kaine oversaw billions of dollars in cuts to the state budget. The state of Virginia is a major center for the military and defense industry, and is home to the Pentagon and the headquarters of the CIA.

Between 2009 and 2011, Kaine served as the head of the Democratic National Committee, the leadership body of the Democratic Party. He is close to Wall Street, having recently backed measures to deregulate banks.

Refugees have affectionately referred to Angela Merkel as "Mutti" (mama), praising the chancellor for her open door policy that has allowed more than a million of asylum seekers to settle in Germany.

Munich Shooting Sparks Push to End Post-WW2 Limits on Using German Military Domestically

Once again underscoring how quickly security officials will look to parlay any incident into an increase of power, Bavarian Interior Minister Joachim Hermann is pushing for a revision of the German Constitution after Friday’s mass shooting in Munich to remove limits on using the military domestically, limits that were put in place immediately after the destruction of the Nazi government.

The German Constitution currently limits the military’s domestic deployments, only allowing their use in cases of “national emergency.” Hermann insisted this was “absolute” and that Germany, as “an absolutely stable democracy,” should be perfectly comfortable with their military deployed on the streets.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

What's that phrase, "Never let a good crisis go to waste"?!?

It feels like that is what is happening right now in Germany.

And given Germany's history, were I a German citizen, or visitor, NO, I WOULD NOT BE PERFECTLY COMFORTABLE WITH GERMAN "MILITARY DEPLOYED ON THE STREETS".

Paul Craig Roberts Warns "Armageddon Approaches" After German Leak

The Western public doesn’t know it, but Washington and its European vassals are convincing Russia that they are preparing to attack. Eric Zuesse reports on a German newspaper leak of a Bundeswehr decision to declare Russia to be an enemy nation of Germany.

According to a report issued on June 6th in German Economic News (Deutsche Wirtschafts Nachrichten, or DWN), the German government is preparing to go to war against Russia, and has in draft-form a Bundeswehr report declaring Russia to be an enemy nation. DWN says: “The Russian secret services have apparently thoroughly studied the paper.

In advance of the paper’s publication, a harsh note of protest has been sent to Berlin: The head of the Foreign Affairs Committee of the Russian State Duma, Alexei Puschkow, has posted the Twitter message: ‘The decision of the German government declaring Russia to be an enemy shows Merkel’s subservience to the Obama administration.’”

Bavarian interior minister does not rule out blast in Ansbach was terrorist attack. 14 people injured in Ansbach blast

"At least, this cannot be ruled out," Herrmann said. "The obvious intention to kill as many people as possible points to Islamist footprint," he added. The person suspected of organizing the blast was a 27-year-old Syrian refugee who came to Germany two years ago and applied for asylum. One year ago his application was rejected. Herrmann said he will contact the federal Office for Migration and Refugees to learn the reasons for rejection. The minister added that the suspect attempted suicide twice and received treatment in a psychiatric hospital. The attacker planned to detonate the explosive device at the music festival with about 2,500 in attendance. However, he did not manage to enter the territory of the festival. The concert was interrupted, people were evacuated, and the city center was cordoned off. Some local residents could return to their homes for several hours.

Over 2,000 people evacuated from music festival in Germany’s Ansbach after blast

A blast in the German city of Ansbach was most likely caused by an explosive device, the police told TASS earlier on Monday. "It was most likely an explosive device," the police said adding that the version with a gas explosion was ruled out. One person suspected of organizing the blast died, the police told TASS. There is no evidence yet that the person who died was a suicide bomber, the police added. "As of now, one person died, and he is the suspect. Eleven people were injured," the police said. The blast occurred near a restaurant in the city center, in close proximity to Ansbach Open music festival. The festival lasted for three days and ended on Sunday.

This is what we’ve been up against forever.”

“The leaked DNC emails are the smoking gun that the Democratic establishment was rigging the game against Bernie the whole time,” Stein said in a press release issued by her campaign. “Instead of running the process impartially and letting the voters decide, top Democratic officials were doing all they could to ensure a Clinton victory, including collusion with journalists to present a pro-Clinton, anti-Sanders narrative.”

Questions Surrounding The Munich Shooting

By Brandon Turbeville

Days after the German mainstream press attempted to portray the Munich shooter both as an ISIS fighter and a right wing extremist, more information has come to light surrounding the history of the shooter and his motives. But, the more information reported by the mainstream press regarding the incident, the more questions that arise in connection to the incident itself.

To be clear, there is not enough evidence to clearly label this attack as a false flag or as a lone nut incident. Still, there are a number of questions that need to be answered and there are a number of aspects to this case that need to be addressed as potentially more than merely striking coincidences. We must avoid the temptation to label every attack as a false flag but we must never ignore the signs that we are witnessing one...

Outrage over German university’s dismissal of anti-Semitism expert

n unleashed a firestorm of criticism from scholars, students and Jewish organizations when it did not extend the employment contract of Dr. Samuel Salzborn - one of the most prominent academic experts in German anti-Semitism.

“It is a scandal! It shows that critical research on right-wing radicalism/anti-Semitism is not desired in Germany," Julius Schoeps, a leading German Jewish historian and a descendant of the 18th century philosopher Moses Mendelssohn, wrote The Jerusalem Post by email in early May. "One can only shake his head.”

Americans fed up with the bullshit they've been fed for many years. They want the truth.

Flynn: This is where I think the world has misread Donald Trump. He has no intention to step away without examining all relationships that we have. His intent is to relook at the way we are organized globally, where the US is sort of expected to be a global leader, but relook at these alliances and these charters that we are under to make sure that they are still viable for the 21st century. It doesn’t mean that President Trump comes into office and NATO goes away. But I would say that NATO as a political alliance does need to be relooked at in terms of everything — resourcing, capabilities.

Republican delegates and party leaders gathering in Cleveland for next week’s national convention praised Donald Trump’s selection of Indiana Governor Mike Pence as his running mate, saying it would stabilize the ticket and calm social conservatives.

It adds significant government experience to Trump’s outsider campaign for the White House.

“Principled Conservative” … “Solid Grasp On Policy” … “A Home Run” … “Could Not Have Made A Better Choice”

Vladimir Putin Is The Only Leader The West Has — Paul Craig Roberts

Putin does not want war. He is doing everything in his power to avoid it.

The trip-point of World War III will be the installation of Washington’s missiles in Poland and Romania. As Putin recently made clear to the imbecilic Western journalists, these missiles can easily and secretly be changed from anti-ballistic missiles to nuclear attack missiles that can strike their Russian targets within 5 or fewer minutes of launch, thus depriving Russia of its retaliatory deterrent. Once these missiles are in place, Washington can issue orders to Russia.

Whatever the evil men and women in Washington who are gambling with the life of the planet think, Russia is not going to accept these missiles.

Brexit campaigner David Davis to lead Britain out of the EU in Theresa May’s new Cabinet

Mr Davis, a former Tory leadership rival to David Cameron, has described Brexit as one of the biggest issues facing Britain.

“The biggest issue over coming years will be managing Brexit, improving UK trade position, controlling borders and enhancing democracy,” Mr Davis tweeted last month.

Making trade deals with countries outside Europe should be a top priority.

“That needs vision, optimism, energy and drive – that is why I am backing @BorisJohnson for Conservative leader,” he added.

Vladimir Putin Is The Only Leader The West Has — Paul Craig Roberts

Putin does not want war. He is doing everything in his power to avoid it.

A Reuters news report under the names of presstitutes Robin Emmott and Sabine Siebold shows how devoid the West is of honest, intelligent and responsible journalists and government officials.

First we will examine the dishonesty or incompetence of the reporters and then that of Western government officials.

NATO rift intensifies as Germany threatens to withdraw troops from Turkish air base

GERMANY has threatened to withdraw hundreds of troops from a NATO base in Turkey after authorities there blocked access for German diplomats.

Amid a fast-escalating dispute between Berlin and Ankara, Turkey has continued to refuse German MPs permission to visit the Incirilik air base.

Relations soured in May after the German parliament passed a resolution declaring the 1915 massacre of Armenians by Ottoman forces was genocide, causing deep anger in Turkey.

NATO LOSES COUNTENANCE

F. William Engdahl
The NATO summit in Warsaw is a part of the nuclear “chicken game”. Washington and the NATO Generals are trying to provoke Russia into an escalation of tensions, because certain circles in the US are becoming desperate over their diminishing power over the world. And they are really losing it. They see a military escalation as the only thing to save their control.

Civil Unrest Explodes In Berlin - Over 3500 People Riot Against Police

The biggest and most violent protest in Germany erupted in Berlin over the weekend exactly with our models calling for an explosion in civil unrest.

Jul 11 10:35

CIVIL UNREST EXPLODES IN BERLIN - OVER 3500 PEOPLE RIOT AGAINST POLICE

Some 1800 police were called in and at least 120 policemen were injured in what is becoming a street battle. This has been the most aggressive and violent protest in Germany for the past five years.

Protesters were throwing bottles, cobblestones and fireworks, as well as they destroyed cars in addition to attacking police officers. It appears at least 3,500 rioters took part in the uprising and possibly more than 4,000.

The protest is against police operations and involved mostly young people who have risen up against the police operations in the Riga street area. Protesters wore black hoods carrying banners with slogans like “Riga defend 94” and “Housing solidarity against state terror.”

Webmaster's Commentary: 

One has to wonder who these people will be voting for in their September elections; or if they think that the German political process has failed them so utterly that voting is an act of complete irrelevance.

The same kind of thing happened earlier this year in France.

But one thing is very clear; the leadership in both countries needs to adapt, and change, or they will be out on their collective ears, come the next election.

US veterans on Chilcot: we need our own inquiry to avoid repeating mistakes

UK’s investigation into Iraq invasion is ‘example of what we could do with political courage’, says codirector of Iraq Veterans against the War.

Following the devastating British inquiry into the 2003 invasion of Iraq, American veterans and their families have warned that the US is liable to repeat the mistakes without a similarly comprehensive investigation.

The UK’s Chilcot inquiry was released on Wednesday, and while it is no secret in the US that the invasion was a failure, nothing so damning as the 2.6m-word British inquiry has been released by an independent US government body.

Chilcot and the End of the Anglosphere – Justin Raimondo

Bush’s poodle subordinated British sovereignty – and precipitated a disaster.

Do we really need a 2.6 million word report on how Bush’s poodle, a.k.a. former British Prime Minister Tony Blair, allowed his country to be pulled into a conflict that claimed hundreds of British lives, thousands of American lives, and at least 150,000 Iraqi lives, while plunging the entire region into a maelstrom of terroristic chaos?

A good decade after being announced, the Chilcot report has finally been released, and what it shows is that the phrase “Bush’s poodle” is blatantly unfair to poodles: after all, even a poodle is known to have gone off its leash every once in a while – but not Tony.

Merkel Urged to Temper NATO’s Belligerence

U.S. intelligence veterans are calling on German Chancellor Merkel to bring a needed dose of realism and restraint to the upcoming NATO conference, which risks escalating the dangerous new Cold War with Russia.

MEMORANDUM FOR: Angela Merkel, Chancellor of Germany

We longtime U.S. intelligence officers again wish to convey our concerns and cautions directly to you prior to a critically important NATO summit – the meeting that begins on July 8 in Warsaw. We were gratified to learn that our referenced memorandum reached you and your advisers before the NATO summit in Wales, and that others too learned of our initiative via the Sueddeutsche Zeitung, which published a full report on our memorandum on Sept. 4, the day that summit began.

NATO Marches Toward Destruction

The Brexit is just one rumbling of such discontent.

As the West’s elites growl about “Russian aggression” – as they once did about Iraq’s WMD – NATO leaders meet in Poland to plan a costly and dangerous new Cold War, while shunning the few voices of dissent.

German Foreign Minister Frank-Walter Steinmeier’s cry of distress is that of a man watching a tidal wave of destruction gathering force, similar to ones that have engulfed his country twice in the Twentieth Century.

An unknown number of German and Canadian troops have recently arrived in the northern Syrian town of Tell Abyad in the northern Raqqa province, sources in the Kurdish opposition told Sputnik on Thursday.

TENSE: German and Canadian troops entered Syria

An unknown number of German and Canadian soldiers recently arrived in the city in northern Syria Tel Abijad, in the northern province of Cancer, said Sputnik sources from the scene.

Military personnel have been deployed in recent days in the area where the US-led coalition fighting against the terrorist organization Daesa.

Syrian television reported last month that German commandos entered Syria to join the French and US forces in the offensive on the city of Manbij controlling Daesa.

Manbij, a town located between the self-proclaimed capital Daesa-a Rake and the Turkish-Syrian border, is strategically important to terrorists.

GERMANS DEMAND EU REFERENDUM: Merkel told to not be 'arrogant' and hold Brussels vote

ANGELA Merkel is facing a nightmare scenario after a leading German MP said Berlin needs to hold an EU Referendum.

Sahra Wagenknecht called for Germany to let the people have their say on whether they want to sever ties with Brussels.

The deputy vice president of Die Linke, the Bundestag's third main party, said it would be "arrogant" to not trust the electorate with the decision.

Because it is in Germany where we find what may be the next domino to fall as part of Europe's latest banking crisis incarnation: Bremen Landesbank, whose contingent convertible bonds have just cratered as a result of speculation that the bank's bailout is suddenly in jeopardy.

ANGELA Merkel has launched a scathing attack on Vladimir Putin amid fears the growing verbal conflict between the two leaders will soon escalate into a large-scale, brutal conflict.

Hillary Rebuffs Bernie’s Policy Demands

Eager to hold the political “center,” Hillary Clinton has budged little on Bernie Sanders’s policy proposals beyond nice-sounding platitudes, a strategy that could lead to clashes at the Democratic convention, says Lawrence Davidson.

Hillary Clinton has pursued the presidency for almost a decade with a tenacious determination. She almost achieved the nomination in 2008 only to lose to Barack Obama. That led to an eight-year stifling of this ambition.

Finally, in the long run-up to the 2016 election, she was convinced the nomination was hers.

Jeremy Corbyn gives #Chilcot statement

The much-edited Chilcot Report finally arrived and Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn has issued a pretty-sounding apology for his party’s decision to go to war in Iraq in 2003. He called it the most serious foreign policy calamity of the last 60 years and “a stain on our party and country”.

It’s unfortunate that he dignifies the evil Iraq war conspiracy by suggesting it had anything to do with policy of the British people. It was a private venture, pledged in secret, by a Labour prime minister and his closest henchmen, and backed by the Cabinet.

Jul 07 12:30

Iraq Verdict: Trouble if heads don’t roll

First and foremost it was not so much a foreign policy disaster as a flat-out war crime for which Blair as chief perpetrator must be tried. And so must his Cabinet, who carry collective responsibility.

There will be mega-trouble if heads don’t roll.

Germany set to tighten rape laws after Cologne sex attacks by migrant mobs

GERMANY is tightening its rape laws in response to a spate of sex attacks by migrant gangs on New Year's Eve.

New 'No means No' legislation will widen the definition of sex crimes and make it easier to deport foreign nationals who commit them.

It re-classifies groping as a sex crime carrying a two-year jail sentence and targets assaults committed by large groups of men.

The reform also covers cases where a victim withholds consent but does not fight back. Under previous laws women reporting a rape had to show they not only verbally declined sex but also physically resisted as well.

German migrant crisis: Row erupts over cost of Angela Merkel's integration policy

The massive influx of more than a million refugees is costing the country billions and local government leaders are demanding at least €8bn from Berlin to help pay for the training courses, nursery spaces and health and social care provision which form part of Angela Merkel's integration policy.

But Finance minister Wolfgang Schäuble, dubbed the Mad Executioner of Europe because of his hardline stance during the Greek economic crisis and a secret plan to give Berlin control over EU budgets, has rejected the cash claims.

Trump Hammers On Brexit, “Independence Day” And Repudiation Of Rule By The Global Elite

One thing is clear, whether or not everyone will agree with what is said, Trump is at least speaking more directly than most politicians do

It turned out that Trump wasted no time in making sure that the people of America understood that what had been done in the UK can be done in the United States.

Globalists and Neocons Prove Incapable of Understanding Reality

If Trump wants to put America first, he needs to start firing the Neoconservatives and their lackeys from the White House and putting them on trial for making Americans look really bad.

Rather than listening and learning and modifying their actions, the ruling elites stick to “more of the same.” This process clearly emblematized by the endless procession of Bushes and Clintons replacing each other in the positions of power.
