Talks on forming a coalition government in Germany have collapsed, leaving Angela Merkel facing her biggest challenge in 12 years as chancellor.......

She lost votes in the last election and the AfD party which opposes the migrant tidal wave that swept over Germany under Merkel's leadership, moved from zero seats to more than 90 in the parliament.
German elites are jumping through hoops of fire trying to disenfranchise the 13+ percent of the population that voted for AfD. I hope they all burn.
As you read into the article and from the way this played on NPR a few minutes ago, the possibility of Merkel being replaced as leader of her party is very real, also the likelihood of new elections.
They’ll have to decide how to deal with this. New elections, some arm twisting the Socialists into joining her or a new CDU leader to replace her, who knows.
Breitbart News Daily on XM just did a story on this from one of their England office reporters.
Add this to the things we are starting to see under the radar here, but all the buzz in the Arabic language news sources. Mueller’s bunch going after documents from current and former Justice officials. Hollyweird in meltdown. Sex scandals blowing up in DC. The political hit job by the establishment of both sides on Roy Moore.
My guess is that Merkel will try to convince Schultz and the SPD to commit organizational suicide by agreeing to yet another “Grand” coalition. That’s about the only way she can keep her job.
If I’m an AfD voter in Germany (and I would be), I’d be mighty p.o.’d about now.
Germany’s Chancellor and Britain’s Prime Minister are both on the ropes right now.
President Trump made reference to the “calm before the storm” at the White House some time back.
Looks like we’ve reached “the storm”.
Stick an apple in die Sau’s mouth and roast her rotten carcass. Die Fuehrerin.
more likely a new CSU leader and then a easy coalition.
Coalition? Ha! Run her out of town on a rail.
Merkel is the most powerful leader of ISIS
In Denmark, Norway and Sweden, each for its own reason, there are minority governments.
CDU/CSU with or without FDP should attempt a minority government. Then, seek enough votes from the members of the other parties on a case by case basis. This can be done.
The problem FDP has (and also CSU) is appeasing the Greens on immigration and fiscal policy. But, since she has verboten AfD, she cannot form a coherent majority government. So, minority government is the best option.
I read that the Green Party, due to its soft heart for Muslim immigrants, is demanding that the families of the Muslims now in German be allowed to come in. I would suggest that all the Muslims be returned to their home countries, and the Green Party members can go back with them and demand special treatment themselves in the Muslim countries. The special treatment would, no doubt, involve getting their heads cut off.
The Establishment must stay in power at any cost.
Zu wenig, zu spät, Deutschland! Du hast schon alles verloren.
Et tu as tout perdu aussi, la belle France!
Guess the people aren’t thrilled with her cheap labor express... it’s not to ‘die for’...
Sounds pretty friggin clear to me. 🙄
“German elites are jumping through hoops of fire trying to disenfranchise the 13+ percent of the population that voted for AfD.”
Its almost comical to see them twist themselves in knots, to ignore the 800 lb gorilla in the room.
I saw a Deutsche Welle article posted yesterday by Berlin Freeper, in which they could not bring themselves to even acknowledge the existence of AfD. They gamed all the possible combinations, except the obvious one, of bringing the AfD voters back into the CDU coalition.
Goodbye Mutter, time for the Government to grow up.
