    European Union leaders have softened their stance on the Brexit talks with Prime Minister Theresa May out of fear that prolonged problems may bring down her government. According to the British newspaper the Daily Telegraph, Angela Merkel now says that she has "absolutely no doubt" that the EU and the UK can both make concessions. That's new. Until now, Merkel and her friends made clear that they would not take a step back. The UK would have to give in, that was all. Now, suddenly, it's this: "If we are all clear in our minds, I have absolutely no doubt...
  • Angela Merkel forced to agree to a German limit on migrants

    As discussed here previously, German Chancellor Angela Merkel may have won another term in the recent elections, but she came away damaged with her previous coalition in tatters. In order to rebuild her alliance in the Bundestag she had to make some new friends and offer concessions to historical allies who were refusing to support her over immigration policy. One of the biggest changes coming out of the recent negotiations is that her former hard line on open borders and no limits on the number of migrants they would accept is out the window. Moving forward, there will be a...

    On Saturday night, at the end of a speech on immigration, I was asked by a lady in the audience about Sunday's impending election in Germany. She had met a young Teutonic chappie who said he was voting for Angela Merkel, and she couldn't understand why. And I said that Frau Merkel was certain to win the election, but what would be important to watch would be the respective strengths of the losing parties: my questioner's chum was voting Merkel because he feared the rise of the "far right" - ie, AfD, Alternative für Deutschland - but I suggested that...

    The German Chancellor Angela Merkel has said she wants to win back the voters who deserted her party for right-wing nationalist AfD. Mrs Merkel is set for a fourth term in office, despite heavy losses for her party. She now faces months of coalition talks with several parties in order to form a stable government. After winning its first parliamentary seats, AfD vowed to fight "an invasion of foreigners" into the country. "We want a different policy," co-leader Alexander Gauland said following the historic surge. Mrs Merkel's conservative CDU/CSU alliance recorded its worst result in almost 70 years.

    Although Angela Merkel's Christian Democrats have lost 9 percent compared to the last elections, her party has yet again become the largest party in Germany's parliament today. Merkel's CDU won 32.5 percent of the vote. That's significantly less than four years ago, but because Germany's electorate is more divided than ever before, it's enough to make her chancellor once more. Well, if she's able to form a coalition with the liberal Free Democrats and the Greens, that is, who finished the day with respectively 10.5 and 9.4 percent of the vote. For Merkel, the results will leave a bitter taste...
  • 'NO CASH!' Merkel's lawyers say Germany can REJECT Polish claim for WW2 reparations

    GERMAN lawyers have concluded that there is no basis to Poland’s demands for billions of pounds in reparations to cover damage done to the country during World War Two, it was reported today. A legal team at the Bundestag scoured through an agreement signed by the two countries back in 1990, called the Two Plus Four Treaty, which paved the way for the reunification of East and West Germany. They came to the conclusion that the wording of the legal document specifically “blocks any reparation demands against Germany to the present day," according to the Frankfurter Allgemeine Zeitung newspaper.

    German Chancellor Angela Merkel has said she regrets nothing about her response to the migrant crisis of 2015. More than a million people from across Asia, Africa, Europe and the Middle East entered Germany two years ago after Mrs Merkel opened her country's doors to Syrian refugees. Her party's support dropped as a consequence and led to a surge in support for the right-wing Alternative for Germany (AfD) party, which pollsters say could win up to 10 percent in the September election. But in an interview with the Welt am Sonntag newspaper, the chancellor said she would do everything 'the...

    German Chancellor Angela Merkel on Monday slammed as “disgusting” the role of white supremacists in a violent protest in Virginia and an “evil attack” against counter-demonstrators that left one woman dead, her spokesman said. In sharply worded remarks, Merkel’s spokesman Steffen Seibert expressed shock at the weekend rally by Ku Klux Klan members and other white nationalists in Charlottesville. “The scenes at the right-wing extremist march were absolutely repulsive — naked racism, anti-Semitism and hate in their most evil form were on display,” he told reporters. “Such images and chants are disgusting wherever they may be and they are diametrically...
  • Why Germany Is Once Again a Threat to the West

    [I]t is important to point out that the popular image both of Angela Merkel and of modern Germany is deeply flawed. Because far from representing a negation -- or a misguided attempt at negation -- of past German policies and attitudes, the modern German mentality is in many ways a mutation or an update of the same mentality that has guided Germany since the eighteenth century, and especially since the unification of the country in 1870. Let us begin with the more obvious parallel: German support for further European integration. Despite all the German talk about subordinating narrow national interests...

This was announced today jointly by Koelnmesse, organiser of gamescom, and the German Trade Association of Interactive Entertainment Software (BIU) as gamescom sponsor. “We consider it a great honour and a sign of recognition that Chancellor Dr. Angela Merkel will this year participate in the opening tour of gamescom”, says Felix Falk, Managing Director of the German Trade Association of Interactive Entertainment Software (BIU). “The visit of Dr. Merkel underlines the importance of...

    "...there are 7.89 million Muslims in Germany, all immigrants (1st, 2nd, or rarely 3rd) or refugees—14.7% of Germany’s population ages 32 and under is Muslim... ...according to the CIA World Factbook, there are 2,986,743 in Germany at the end of 2016... More troubling is the fact that when I looked at their archived page, I found that their website said in 2010 that there were 3,044,370 Muslims in Germany—the percentage of population (3.7% did not change), although the population estimates did. So according to this US government source, we are led to believe that there are fewer Muslims in Germany...

    What does a real negotiator negotiate? Pretty much everything. Just ask German Chancellor Angela Merkel, she came for tea and left having to commit to ponying up her overdue NATO dues. Trump told Merkel he supports a "strong NATO" but added that her country and other European nations must pay their "fair share" of the costs of the alliance. "Many nations owe vast sums of money from past years and it is very unfair to the United States," Trump said in a joint news conference with Merkel after their meetings. "These nations must pay what they owe."Merkel said Germany is...

    Since the early days of the Cold War, the president of the United States has been known as the "Leader of the Free World." According to several media outlets, this is no longer true. The title originated in the late 1940s after World War II but did not become popular until the early 1950s. The "free world" first consisted of the Allied powers that stood up against the Axis powers during the Second World War. As the Cold War took shape, the free world became non-communist countries, led by the United States, that resisted the Soviet Union and pursued capitalism...

    Bosses of German companies including engineering group Siemens (SIEGn.DE) and carmaker BMW (BMWG.DE) will travel with Chancellor Angela Merkel to meet U.S. President Donald Trump this week, sources familiar with the matter told Reuters. Faced with Trump's "America First" policy and threats to impose tariffs on imported goods, the captains of industry will stress how many U.S. jobs are tied to "Deutschland AG". Trains-to-turbines group Siemens employs more than 50,000 people in the United States, its single biggest market, where it makes 21 percent of its total revenue, while BMW's South Carolina plant is its largest factory anywhere in the...

    The embattled leader says Europe has an obligation to take more displaced people from Syria and Iraq. She also said Islam "is not the cause of terrorism" and that combatting extremism needs the cooperation of Muslim countries. In a wide-ranging speech at a Munich security conference, the German chief also vowed to work closely with Vladimir Putin's Russia in the fight with ISIS in the Middle East. Mrs Merkel has come under fire for taking in up to one million refugees amid security concerns and a string of migrant sex attacks across Germany. After the Berlin lorry attack at a...

    Backtracking If there’s a poster child for the implementation of a disastrous immigration policy, her name is Angela Merkel. By throwing Germany’s doors wide open, the Chancellor has become the face of a refugee free-for-all that has left her country - and much of Europe - in turmoil. Now, Merkel is facing re-election. You can tell it’s not going well for her because, after years of anything-goes rhetoric, she’s trying to backpedal. Apparently, she’s decided it’s time to get rid of a good chunk of the 1.2 million refugees who entered Germany. The problem is (go figure) they’re reluctant to...

"I think we Europeans hold our destiny in our own hands," she said. "We know what his position is," Merkel said in response to Trump slamming her refugee policy as a "catastrophic mistake." "My position is also known," she added. In an interview with Germany's Bild and the Times of London, Trump also threatened to impose a hefty tax on German carmakers for selling vehicles in the...
