    BERLIN (AP) — Meet one of Germany’s newest residents: Angela Merkel Muhammed. The little girl was born last week to a migrant couple who fled Syria’s bloody war and decided to name her in honor of the 63-year-old German chancellor whose policies allowed them to start a new life in 2015.

    Angela Merkel is essentially the de-facto global head of modern political liberalism.  The central tenet, almost religious-based in its importance, is the lunacy within “climate change”.  However, as most reasonable people have concluded, the ‘climate discussions’ are more about controlled global economics than any actual concerns about planetary climatology.   Bottom line, it’s the economics that really matter beyond all else.
  • Merkel condemns 'disgusting' far-right violence in US

    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...

He was nicknamed “Sankt Martin”, the man who had the potential to topple Angela Merkel... *snip* The polls show Schulz’s SPD trailing Merkel’s CDU/CSU alliance by about 14%, having been almost neck-and-neck just a few months ago.
  • Merkel condemns 'verbal escalation' with North Korea after Trump tweets

    Chancellor Angela Merkel said on Friday that she opposed any use of force to resolve the conflict with North Korea, after President Donald Trump said the US military was “locked and loaded”. “I don’t envision a military solution to this conflict, but rather consistent work as we’ve observed at the United Nations Security Council,” Merkel told reporters. “Germany will very intensively take part in the options for resolution that are not military, but I consider a verbal escalation to be the wrong response,” she said when asked about Trump’s latest tweets on North Korea. Merkel called for “very close cooperation”...
  • 'Europe must not follow Trump's military build-up logic': a chat with Merkel's main election rival

    Angela Merkel’s main rival in the upcoming election opened up this week in an interview about the balance between freedom and security, as well as about what Europe’s military strategy should be. Six weeks before Germany’s national election in which Merkel will seek a fourth term, her main rival Martin Schulz is lagging behind in the polls. In the most recent survey at the end of July by Stern, RTL and Forsa Institute, Schulz sank to his lowest level of support since being nominated as the Social Democrats’ (SPD) chancellor candidate. Just 21 percent of respondents said that hypothetically speaking,...

    It is little wonder that people like the Obamas, the Clintons, Justin Trudeau, Theresa May, Angela Merkel, Emmanuel Macron and the growing, elite group of emerging, 'socialist' kings and queens are all real tight buddies What made America the greatest economic and social powerhouse in the world was the ability to work for what you want and to enjoy the fruit of that labor. It is called incentive. Karl Marx loved to sit in coffee shops and whirl out plans for a government that he had no intention of living under. In his spare time he constructed a long, drawn...

    It wasn’t a bad week for the eurozone. Greece was able to borrow money from the bond market for the first time in two years, securing €3 billion ($3.5 billion). The International Monetary Fund increased its growth forecast for the eurozone as a whole, especially for southern European members, which were hard hit by the financial crisis. But despite the positive signals, the eurozone is hardly crisis-proof and much work remains to shore up the currency union. This was made clear by German Chancellor Angela Merkel two weeks ago, when she visited French President Emmanuel Macron in Paris. “We will...

    BERLIN (Reuters) - German business morale hit a record high in July as "euphoric" manufacturers, shrugging off the impact of a strong euro, anticipated a surge in already robust exports from Europe's biggest economy. The Munich-based Ifo economic institute said on Tuesday its business climate index, based on a monthly survey of some 7,000 firms, hit its third record high in as many months with a rise to 116.0 from 115.2 in June.

    Dear Federal Government, I turn on the TV and I see “refugees”. I open up the newspaper and I read “refugees”. I go online and I see an ad banner in which the German economy is advertising for what? Right, for “refugees”. I walk through my home town and I see “refugees”. I drive my car and what do I see on the side of the road, walking in crowds? “Refugees”. I have had enough. What, really, have you done to us? Who among us was asked if they wanted this all and called it good? Who or what are...
  • German economy to grow by around 0.6 percent in second quarter: Finance Ministry

    BERLIN (Reuters) - The German economy is humming and set for solid growth despite external risks such as the unknown outcome of Brexit negotiations and U.S. President Donald Trump's future trade policies, the German Finance Ministry said on Thursday. "The current picture of economic indicators suggests that the economic upswing continued vigorously in the second quarter," the ministry said in its monthly report, pointing to rising industrial output and buoyant business morale. German gross domestic product (GDP) likely expanded in the second quarter by a similar rate as in the previous three months when the economy grew by 0.6 percent...

    It seems you can’t talk about Germany these days without dragging Turkey into the conversation and that’s particularly true of the ongoing refugee crisis. Chancellor Angela Merkel sat down for an interview this week and was asked about the refugee situation and whether or not she might consider a cap on incoming immigrants in light of all the problems they’ve been experiencing. Despite some of her previous statements during the current election campaign, Merkel flatly rejected the idea of limiting the number they would accept

    BERLIN (Reuters) - German SPD leader Martin Schulz set out plans to boost investment and enhance European unity, accusing Chancellor Angela Merkel of making empty promises. Schulz, the former European Parliament President, is hoping to beat Merkel in a Sept. 24 election but his center-left Social Democrats (SPD) have lost momentum in the polls after initial gains following his nomination in January. Presenting a 10-point plan for a modern Germany and a better Europe, Schulz told supporters in Berlin that he would compel the state to raise spending on infrastructure and education. "Germany can do more," Schulz said.

    France and Germany agreed Thursday to begin work on a joint fighter jet, a major advance in their relations designed to underline their united front in the face of fracturing Western relations. Newly elected French President Emmanuel Macron welcomed German Chancellor Angela Merkel to the Élysée Palace in Paris on Thursday for a joint cabinet meeting between their governments. Among a host of measures agreed between their economy, culture and education ministers, the joint fighter jet proposal underscored their plans to create a new dynamic in the Franco-German motor at the heart of the European Union.

    German Chancellor Angela Merkel on Saturday defended President Trump’s daughter Ivanka for briefly sitting in for her father during a Group of 20 summit meeting in Germany. Merkel, who served as the host leader of this year's summit, said at a news conference that it was up to individual nations to decide who represented them, Bloomberg reported. "The delegations themselves decide, should the president not be present for a meeting, who will then take over and sit in the chair,” Merkel said, according to the report. “Ivanka Trump was part and parcel of the American delegation, so that is something...

    The fall of Western Europe marches on with the speed of a possessed automaton. From Italy to Great Britain, millions of migrants from the war torn Middle East and countries in Africa have stormed ashore, across the Alps, while advancing like colonies of red ants into Germany, Sweden, Denmark, France, Austria, Italy and the United Kingdom. The millions of Islamic migrants who have invaded Europe since 2015 are not coming to Europe to uphold democracy. They are coming to destroy democracy and usher in a new caliphate from Palermo to Manchester. The invasion of Western Europe has become tantamount to...

    World leaders made concessions on trade and climate language to Donald Trump Saturday at the end of the most fractious and riot-hit G20 summit ever, in exchange for preserving a fragile unity of the club of major industrialised and emerging economies. But the gesture opened the door for others, with Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan warning that Ankara was now leaning towards not ratifying the landmark Paris climate accord. Erdogan’s threat brought further disarray to a summit that was marred by bilateral quarrels and strife over climate protection and trade. […] In a departure from final summit declarations that tend...
