Thought for the day

"The conscious and intelligent manipulation of the organized habits and opinions of the masses is an important element in democratic society. Those who manipulate this unseen mechanism of society constitute an invisible government which is the true ruling power of our country. We are governed, our minds are molded, our tastes formed, our ideas suggested, largely by men we have never heard of." -- Edward Bernays

Germany Sleepwalking Into Another Migrant Crisis, Warns Leading EU Politician MikeRivero Tue, 12/06/2022 - 08:10

The President of the European People’s Party (EPP) in the European Parliament has warned that Germany is “sleepwalking” into another migrant crisis as more waves of Ukrainian refugees are expected to flee the country during the winter.

Amid dropping temperatures and Russia’s continued assaults on Ukraine’s energy infrastructure, Germany is facing the prospect of hundreds of thousands more refugees seeking shelter within its borders.

 The German government will adopt a new national security strategy that will take into account ‘threats from Russia’ in a few months, German Chancellor Olaf Scholz said in his article for the Foreign Affairs magazine.

"For the last three decades, decisions regarding Germany’s security and the equipment of the country’s armed forces were taken against the backdrop of a Europe at peace. Now, the guiding question will be which threats we and our allies must confront in Europe, most immediately from Russia," the chancellor said.

Recent comments by former German Chancellor Angela Merkel shed light on the duplicitous game played by Germany, France, Ukraine and the United States in the lead-up to the Russian invasion of Ukraine in February.

Among the Nazis’ first actions after taking power was to dismantle the German trade unions and labour power. By March 1933 the first concentration camp was erected at Dachau, soon to be followed by others, where numerous communists, socialists and other undesirables were interned.

Prescott Bush was a partner of Brown Brothers Harriman & Co and director of Union Banking Corporation which had close relations with German corporate interests including Thyssen Steel, a major company involved in the Third Reich’s weapons industry. 

A German nurse was accused of injecting more than 10,000 patients with saline solution rather than the COVID-19 vaccine.

She was sentenced to 6 months probation this week.

The nurse was identified as Antje T, the 40-year-old Red Cross nurse from the German district of Friesland.

It is still unclear how many who were injected with the saline eventually came down with COVID-19. 

Look for authorities to hide this number from the public.

Volkswagen’s CEO wrote that electric vehicle battery plants in the European Union are “practically unviable” at this moment due to soaring energy costs.

Qatar has announced its first major gas deal with Germany, as countries in western and central Europe attempt to move away from reliance on Russian gas.

Qatari Energy Minister Saad Sherida al-Kaabi said on Tuesday that up to two million tons of Qatari liquefied natural gas per year would be transported to Germany beginning in 2026.

The gas contract is set for 15 years, while QatarEnergy, a state-run company, is eyeing other gas deals with European countries.
