Top German Politicians Want US Nuclear Weapons Out: Did Anti-Nuclear Actions Propel Issue Into National Elections?

Germany Launches Probe After Pentagon's Syrian Arms Smuggling Story Goes Viral

The German government has opened a probe into an illegal Pentagon arms trafficking operation after a bombshell investigative report on the secret program went viral this week.

On Wednesday we reported on the continuing Pentagon arms pipeline to Syria which runs through Europe, the Balkans, and Caucuses, and which is based on a shady network of private contractors and altered US government paperwork. The Organized Crime and Corruption Reporting Project (OCCRP) and the Balkan Investigative Reporting Network (BIRN) produced conclusive evidence and internal memos proving that not only is the Pentagon currently involved in shipping up to $2.2 billion worth of (mostly old Soviet) weapons from private dealers to US-backed Syrian militants, but is actually manipulating paperwork such as end-user certificates in order to conceal the ultimate destinations of the weaponry (in this case Syria).

Brexit is already damaging Germany’s trade with the UK and it is set to get worse, according to the Association of German Chambers of Commerce and Industry.

But new research from the Cologne Institute for Economic Research (IW) has now revealed the drastic extent to which Germany could face economic disaster following Brexit.

According to the study, many German manufacturers are dependent on the production of goods abroad – with many partners being based in Britain.

In 2014 alone, the British supplied intermediate goods worth EUR 200 billion to the EU, of which 36 billion went to Germany.

Refugees welcome? Merkel flip flops on migrants as chancellorship at stake

Despite receiving thousands of asylum-seekers annually, Germany has been safeguarded by its geographic location and the Dublin agreement (which regulates asylum procedures in the EU), which left most refugees stranded in the EU’s coastal states, such as Greece and Italy. Berlin, however, began facing a new reality two years ago. As the migrant influx into Europe from the Middle East and North Africa gained momentum, the German chancellor announced a “humanitarian move,” opening Germany’s borders to migrants in August 2015.

The co-chair of the populist Alternative for Germany (AfD) party has been widely condemned after the publication of an allegedly leaked email, in which she reportedly calls the German Chancellor a “pig tasked with keeping Germany down”.

Just weeks before the German parliamentary elections, Alice Weidel, who is also one of the two leading candidates from her party, found herself at the center of a high-profile political storm after the Die Welt daily published the email, in which she allegedly cynically questioned German sovereignty and accused the German government of deliberately instigating a civil war.

“These pigs are nothing other than puppets of the WWII Allied Powers tasked with keeping the German people down by instigating civil wars in the metropolitan areas by flooding them with foreigners,” Weidel allegedly wrote in an email to a confidant, referring to Angela Merkel and her government, as reported by Die Welt.

German hackers find security hole in software used for vote counts

Voting in Germany is done with pen and paper, and the results are counted by hand and then organised by computer. The hackers said while final results could not be changed, a false early result could easily be sent out, prompting chaos and confusion.

“First of all I thought this can’t be possible,” Tschirsich told hessenschau.de. “Trust in the election process could be destroyed if the official result was to differ significantly from the preliminary ones.”

He said he acted out of the need to protect the democratic process by informing the authorities of the vulnerabilities, which he believed could have been spotted by “even the most average” IT student.

The company that runs the software, vote iT, said it was working to fix the problems.

Tschirsich said he had gone to the media with his findings after being spurned by both vote iT and the electoral offices.

Germany’s HUGE export secret: The one economy fact Merkel does NOT want the world to know

There has been growing scrutiny over Angela Merkel’s nation’s trade surplus, which has provoked anger from the United States’ president, but the balance sheet for 2017 will add fuel to that fire.

Over the course of the year Germany will sell more across its borders than even they expected with reports claiming exports have hit a “breathtaking rate since the financial and economic crisis”.

While firms, employees and the treasury have all seen the benefit, anger is growing from trading partners over the burgeoning account surplus.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

The problem isn't that Germany makes and sells products other nations want, but that the United States no longer does!

Update on an earlier post: WW II bomb found results in mass evacuation

Earlier this morning this site had a link to pictures of WW II damage in German cities. (http://www.yourdestinationnow.com/2017/09/harrowing-never-before-seen-...)

Here, an update on that as a week ago some 60,000 people in Frankfurt were forced to evacuate when a WW II bomb was found.

https://www.reuters.com/article/us-germany-frankfurt-evacuation/frankf...

They even used 'heat-detecting' devises to find anyone who did not evacuate. Well, I guess the DEEP State can now detect anyone, anything, anywhere and put their will upon us all.

Germany disputes size of Russian wargames, predicts 100,000 troops

Germany said on Thursday that Russia was planning to send more than 100,000 troops to war games on NATO’s eastern flank this month, disputing Moscow’s version that only 13,000 Russian and Belarussian servicemen would participate.

The Sept. 14-20 exercises known as Zapad, or “West” in Belarus, the Baltic Sea, western Russia and the Russian exclave of Kaliningrad, are stirring unease in NATO despite Moscow’s assurances troops would rehearse a purely defensive scenario.

“It is undisputed that we are seeing a demonstration of capabilities and power of the Russians,” German Defence Minister Ursula von der Leyen told reporters at an EU defense ministers’ meeting in Tallinn.

“Anyone who doubts that only has to look at the high numbers of participating forces in the Zapad exercise: more than one hundred thousand,” she said in a joint news conference with her French counterpart Florence Parly.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Methinks Germany protests too much; and where in the world did she get that number of 100,000?!?

These Zapad exercises have been carried on by the Russians for a number of years; why the big panic now?!?

And BTW, why has NATO seen fit to envelop Russia's borders with NATO troops over the last several years?!?

German Chancellor Angela Merkel was greeted with shouts of "traitor" by a rowdy group of right-wing protesters in east Germany on Thursday as she defended her decision to allow hundreds of thousands of refugees into the country.

Roughly five weeks before an election in which she is expected to win a record-tying fourth term, Merkel veered from her stump speech, acknowledging "difficult times" in 2015 when a flood of asylum seekers, many from the Middle East, entered Germany.

It was her first campaign stop in eastern Germany, parts of which have been fertile ground for anti-immigration politics.

"Many people were worried. They said to themselves: 'What about us? Are we still important or are only the refugees important'?" she told a crowd of several thousand in the central market square in Annaberg-Buchholz, a town in the state of Saxony near the Czech border.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Notice that this question remains unanswered in the rest of her speech.

Immigration ultimately means votes; that is what Merkel's party is counting on, in the long term, regardless of the harm and displacement it is causing German nationals now.

Ex-German chancellor says Russia will not change stance on Crimea

German people are interested in building normal relations with Russia, former German Chancellor, member of the German Social Democratic Party Gerhard Schroeder said in an interview with the Swiss newspaper Blick published on Thursday. According to the politician, the debate on Crimea’s status will end in nothing and should not be linked to other issues. Schroeder supported leader of Germany’s Free Democratic Party Christian Lindner who called for seeing Crimea’s status as "a long-term temporary phenomenon." "The chairman of the Free Democratic Party turned out to be more sharp-eyed that those who believe that demonizing Russia will help them in their election race. The German people needs normal relations with Russia, and Lindner realized that," Schroeder said. "Nothing will change in the Crimean issue, while the remaining issues should be tackled separately. I would like to help improve relations between Russia and the EU.

German foreign minister warns New START and INF Treaties termination will affect Europe

The termination of the Treaties on missile armament cuts and liquidation will affect Europe’s security, German Foreign Minister Sigmar Gabriel said on Wednesday. Germany’s top diplomat made this statement after a meeting with experts of the Commission on Challenges to Deep Nuclear Weapons Cuts from Russia, the United States and Germany. "The possible termination of the Intermediate-Range Nuclear Forces (INF) Treaty and the non-prolongation of the New START Treaty [the Treaty on Measures for the Further Reduction and Limitation of Strategic Offensive Arms] are what will eventually threaten Europe, in the first place," Gabriel said. The German foreign minister also said he shared the experts’ opinion that "the worst Cold War mistakes are repeated" and the world is at the stage of "Cold War 2.0." According to him, European countries should become active participants in the disarmament discussion.
