Germany

First World War ended 100 years ago with an atrociously false and unfair peace

ON THE 11TH DAY OF THE 11TH MONTH OF NOVEMBER 1918, a German government delegation led by Mathias Erzberger crossed into France and signed a cease-fire at the 11th hour in the presence of Marshall Ferdinand Foch and other French and British military commanders. Yet this is now called by official historians a German surrender.

Germany never intended to surrender militarily, but between this date and 28 June, 1919 when a peace treaty was signed in the Hall of Mirrors at the Versailles palace outside Paris, the United States, Britain, France and Italy colluded in separating Germany from her allies, bullying and blockading (starving) her into accepting unacceptable conditions of peace. They did the same with Austria and Hungary, in separate treaties.

President Trump led in rejecting UN Global Migration Pact—Hungary and now Austria follow

Austrian chancellor Sebastian Kurz (left) and vice-chancellor HC Strache announce they are following in the footsteps of leaders from the United States and Hungary by a decision not to sign the UN Migration Compact in December.


By Carolyn Yeager

THE UN MIGRATION COMPACT FOR SAFE, ORDERLY AND REGULAR MIGRATION was approved in July by all 193 UN members except the United States. Later Victor Orban of Hungary said he would not sign the final document, which signing ceremony is to take place in Marrakesh, Morocco in December. Now Sebastian Kurz, chancellor of Austria, has announced that his country has decided not to sign it and will not send a representative to Morocco for the event. Poland is also indicating that it will probably decide the same. [Update: https://www.dw.com/en/merkel-meets-polish-pm-as-he-threatens-withdrawal-from-un-migration-pact/a-46135819]

The compact, which calls mass migration “inevitable, necessary, and desirable,” is made up of 23 goals, some of which definitely infringe upon the sovereignty of first world nations. Austria, in making its Oct. 31 announcement said that 17 of those goals are unacceptable to its government, led by Kurz's conservative Peoples Party in coalition with vice-chancellor Hans-Christian Strache's populist Freedom Party.

UPDATE - Angela Merkel has announced she will not run again for CDU Chairman at the party's annual meeting in December. At last, at last! She says she will remain Chancellor until her term expires in 2021 but, of course, if her government coalition falls apart at any time, there could be a call for new elections. The CDU made a historically poor performance in the last two state elections.


by Carolyn Yeager

BUT YOU WOULDN'T KNOW IT FROM READING THE GERMAN NEWS OUTLETS, who are all playing down the Alternative for Germany's success since it wasn't the big winner of the night and “only came in 4th” out of six parties that earned the minimum 5%. They fail to mention the AfD's +9 point increase from 2013, which is greater than the 8.5 point increase being so wildly celebrated for the liberal Green Party.

The fact that the Greens won between 19 and 20 per cent of the total vote in this Western Germany state, equaling the result for the declining Social Democratic Party (which lost eleven percent from 2013 – the biggest loser in that regard!) is enough reason for the press to accord them the title of big winner of this election. Well, the Greens probably took their substantial increase directly from the Reds!

Monica Schaefer given 10-month prison sentence; set free with time served

BOTH MONICA AND HER BROTHER ALFRED RECEIVED PRISON SENTENCES on Oct. 26 at their trial in Munich, Germany, for "denying the Holocaust."

Monica, 59, (left) was given a sentence of 10 months and was set free immediately as she has been incarcerated for that long already. Alfred, 63, was sentenced to 3 years, 2 months - obviously seen as the more 'dangerous' of the two.

According to the Canadian Jewish News (the only media coverage I have found so far other than a brief email from Lady Michele Renouf who was personally contacted by one of their attorneys):

The siblings were tried together on six counts of “incitement to hatred” for producing and posting at least one video in which Monika Schaefer denied the Holocaust.

AfD's Gauland says Merkel's demand for election campaign control is absurd

Published by carolyn on Thu, 2018-10-18 21:35

CHANCELLOR ANGELA MERKEL HAS ANNOUNCED GUIDELINES FOR DEALING WITH PARTIES that allegedly engage in disinformation in election campaigns, which would bring financial sanctions into play.

AfD national spokesman Alexander Gauland  (right) said in Berlin on Oct. 18:

"If it is up to the Chancellor, opposition parties will soon have to submit their campaign material to the government for consideration. Presumably, a 'Ministry of Truth' will be set up for this purpose. That is not an absurd statement.”

He added, “Merkel's announcement shows how tense the nerves of the old parties are in the face of their continuing decline. Apparently, the current popular parties no longer trust their own arguments, but see in them their last chance to discredit the political opponent.

Mixed results in Bavaria's election indicate typical German caution

Published by carolyn on Sun, 2018-10-14 14:27

33-year-old Bavarian Green party leader Katharina Schulze is young and vivacious.  Neither the AfD nor the other parties had such a charismatic leader on display.


By Carolyn Yeager

The biggest gainer in today's Baravian state election is the left-wing Green Party with a current gain of around 9 points over its 2013 result. That is, if you don't include the gain of over 10 points by the Alternative for Germany (AfD) party, which rose from zero in 2013 since they were not on the ballot then.

The AfD was only formed in 2013 and in those five years has risen to a position hovering between 2nd and 3rd most popular in Germany as a whole. In conservative Bavaria today, though, they came in fourth, following closely behind a right-leaning Southern Germany party called "Free Voters."

RICHARD EDMONDS, FRIEND OF URSULA HAVERBECK and of revisionism, sent round this letter he received from Ursula, which he translated into English. He said:

Below you will see UH's reply to me: she first wrote some personal lines of thanks to me, then gave me the statement which she intends reading out at her Hamburg trial.

Intel chief Maassen turns in report to Seehofer, while far-left wants him sacked

Published by carolyn on Mon, 2018-09-10 14:57

Interior Minister Horst  Seehofer (right) listens as his intel chief Hans-Georg Maassen  speaks. Maassen turned in a report on Friday explaining his position on a controversial video used by Chancellor Merkel and the left parties to denounce "nazi violence" in the city of Chemnitz during the past two weeks.


UPDATE 9-12: Maassen survives grilling in Parliament; given vote  of confidence by Interior Minister Seehofer. Maassen came under fire for not being tough enough against the so-called far-right during the anti-migration protests in the eastern German city of Chemnitz. At the hearing, the head of the domestic intellegence agency is reported to have aimed his criticism at the media, stating that terms like "hounding" should not be used lightly in writing because they can redefine reality. Seehofer praised Maassen for his work and stated that he had argued convincingly and with nuance. Naturally, the left and far-left were not satisfied, saying they had lost confidence in him.

Today's Germany is run by Stalinists

Among the thousands who demonstrated in Chemnitz last week, some carried this very explicit sign. No message could be more deplorable to the majority parties.


By Carolyn Yeager

UPDATE 9/7 - Well, golly gee. Germany's top federal domestic security chief, Hans-Georg Maassen, President of the Federal Office for the Protection of the Constitution, has stated that reports that right-wing "extremists" were chasing down non-Germans during demonstrations in Chemnitz cannot be verified.

"I share the scepticism towards media reports of right-wing extremists chasing down [foreigners] in Chemnitz," Hans-Georg Maaßen told Bild.

A video that was shared online claimed to show far-right protesters chasing after people who looked non-German.  Maaßen said: "There is no evidence to suggest that the video of this alleged incident circulating online is authentic."

Interview: AfD's Alexander Gauland accepts that Hitler 'killed six million Jews'—How is never asked

Published by carolyn on Thu, 2018-08-16 15:51

By Carolyn Yeager

I SUPPORT AND APPLAUD THE AfD (Alternative fuer Deutschland party) because it's the only thing that is moving Germany out of it's stuck state of post-war guilt and perennial apology. Since I know it is not possible for a politician to defend Adolf Hitler or question a single element of the Holocaust false narrative in Germany—nor in any Western country, for that matter—without committing political suicide, I don't expect any to do so. Still, someone like Bjorn Höcke manages to criticize indirectly these very sacred cows and party head Alexander Gauland has always defended him and prevented him from being excluded from the party. So overall, Dr. Gauland (born in 1941) is a seasoned politician and positive force; I wish him continued vigor and ability to lead the party.
