Software used to tabulate election results might be hacked, the CCC warns. Analysis of the PC-Wahl software package used in many states to capture, aggregate and tabulate the votes during elections threw up a number of vulnerabilities.

Gold Fever: Bild Issues 'Semi-Fake News' on Return of Precious Ingots to Germany

The newspaper Bild has deliberately misled the public by publishing fake news about the early return of Germany's gold reserves, finance expert Peter Boehringer told Sputnik.

Boehringer, who is also a Germany gold repatriation activist, referred to Bild's article titled "The gold is finally in Germany. Bundesbank brings German gold reserves from abroad three years earlier than planned."

He said that "this is semi-fake news" as only fifty percent of Germany's gold reserves were returned. Given the sluggish schedule Bundesbank has set itself, this is hard to label a success, according to him.

Merkel, called 'traitor', defends refugee stance in rowdy east Germany

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.

STUDY SUGGESTS DRUGGING UP GERMANS TO ACCEPT MORE MIGRANTS

Drugging up Germans with oxytocin will help make them “friendlier” to migrants and more susceptible to open borders, a study suggested.

Oxytocin, known as the “cuddle hormone” due to its generosity effects on humans, was suggested as part of a “treatment” for Germans who oppose EU migrant quotas, according to University of Bonn researchers.

“It appears that pairing oxytocin with a social norm can help counter the effects of xenophobia by enhancing altruistic behavior toward refugees,” the study stated.

The leader researcher, Prof. Rene Hurlemann, claimed that “given the right circumstances, oxytocin may help promote the acceptance and integration of migrants into Western cultures.”

In other words, let’s just drug Germans into accepting a globalist agenda.

The study asked 100 native Germans their opinions on migrants, then gave half of them a dose of oxytocin while the other half received a placebo.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Are you flipping kidding me?!?

No.

What has to happen here is a mandate by the German people that no more open borders shall exist; every single immigrant MUST be housed by the politicians who proposed this open borders policy, including Angela Merkel, and all the rest need to be housed on whatever lands George Soros owns in Germany.

THAT should sort the problem, within a couple of months!!!

His book caused a sensation in Germany, was a best-seller despite being completely ignored by the same media he was implicating, and was a major factor in turning German public opinion against the Ukraine war.

"We are in a situation when we need to tell the US government clearly that verbal sabre rattling leads to the exacerbation of the conflict." In his view, European politicians should make it clear to Washington that they do not share this approach. "We need to use all channels to achieve de-escalation, to get the message across to the US president that his rhetoric is dangerous," the German politician said. He noted that "the North Korean dictator’s irrational moves require a rational response"...

US Sanctions — a Looney Tunes Bad Remake

By F. William Engdahl
5 Aug 2017

The ever-so-wise members of the Congress of the United States have just passed one of the most bizarre pieces of legislation in US history. Unilaterally, it makes illegal and severely punishable investments by European companies in international energy projects where Russia is involved. But it does far more. Unlike earlier US sanctions acts, the EU countries were not even consulted on the new act. It may well be that the bill, HR-3364: Countering Americas Adversaries Through Sanctions Act (sic) and its Senate counterpart will mark the irreversible decline of the United States as a global power and forge new ties between Russia, China, Iran and, yes, the major states of the EU including Germany .

German techno band faces charges for Crimea concert: Ukraine envoy

German techno band Scooter faces significant legal consequences for performing at a festival in the Crimea region of Ukraine that was annexed by Russia in 2014, the Ukrainian ambassador to Germany said an interview published Saturday.

Andrij Melnyk, Ukraine's envoy to Germany, told the Funke Mediengruppe newspaper chain that the band's decision to enter the Crimea region "illegally" on Thursday was "not only a scandal, but also a crime with serious legal consequences."

Melnyk said Ukrainian prosecutors had already begun legal proceedings against the band.

"This isn't some minor infraction, but a serious crime that will be punished," he told the newspaper group.

The band was due to appear at the ZBFest rock festival in Balaklava on Friday.

Scooter front man H.P. Baxxter told German media last month the band was going to Crimea to perform music, not engage in politics.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Andrij Melnyk, a word (or two), please.

First, let us politely strip away your completely idiotic, lying pretext that Russia allegedly "annexed" Ukraine.

Ukraine was regime changed by US/IMF/Soros agents in 2014, when the non-Eurocentric, duly elected Yanukovich got thrown under a bus, and Poroshenko got "anointed" as Ukraine's president, in an election more crooked than is a dog's hind leg.

President Obama publicly admitted to US culpability in this process:

Obama admits that the US brokered a deal in support of regime change in Ukraine

It's not Russia that's pushed Ukraine to the brink of war

Also, unless you have a really lousy case of SMD (Selective Memory Disorder), you will recall the reality about Victoria Nuland's nearly bragging about having spent 5 billion dollars to create regime change in Kiev in a presentation:

Victoria Nuland's Admits Washington Has Spent $5 Billion to "Subvert Ukraine"

Those, sir, are the realities of the situation; there was no annexation of Crimea by Russia; the Crimeans held a referendum of their people ( an exercise in peaceful self-determination, which as a signatory to the UN Charter, Ukraine defends, right?!?) as to whether Crimeans wanted to stay with Ukraine, post-coup, or petition the Russian Federation to join it. In an overwhelming majority vote, the Crimeans voted to petition the Russian Federation to become a member, and the Russian Federation accepted their petition.

Now, as to these German nationals performing in Crimea; if, in fact, they are German citizens, the law of Ukraine holds absolutely no sway in Germany, so there is utterly no legal foundation for a prosecution against them.

IF Germany decides to prosecute them, due to their going along with the "US Party Line" which supports the lie of Russian annexation, that is well within Germany's purview.

Now I am no fan of techno pop; but as a sister musician operating in a profoundly different musical paradigm (I'm a published Christian fine arts composer), art needs to be free, and be performed wherever there is welcomed, and not politicized.

Sir, in pursuing this lawsuit, you are appearing to the world, to be behaving as the nether end of a jaysap, and I would strongly encourage you to drop this lawsuit, and right now, for the sake or your and Ukraine's international reputation.

New US sanctions reflect Washington’s economic goals — German official

"There is an impression that the American side places emphasis on its own economic interests. In this respect, the European Commission’s decision to think about possible retaliatory measures comes as a logical reaction to extraterritorial sanctions, questionable from the point of view of the international law," said Volker Treier, Deputy Chief Executive and Managing Director of International Economic Affairs at the Association of German Chambers of Industry and Commerce (DIHK). The official added that "important energy security projects may be put on hold" if German companies are barred from engaging in joint projects with Russia. "This would have a painful impact on the German economy in general," he said.

Imperial Folly Brings Russia and Germany Together

The Empire of Whiners simply can't get enough when it comes to huff, puff and pout as the Empire of Sanctions.

Economic war has been declared against Russia for at least three years now. The difference is this latest package also declares economic war against Europe, especially Germany.

On the Russia front, what the Empire of Sanctions faces does not even qualify as a hollow victory. Kommersant has reported that Moscow, among other actions, will retaliate by banning all American IT companies and all US agricultural products from the Russian market, as well as exporting titanium to Boeing (30% of which comes from Russia).

‘Germany is a MESS’ Merkel tells Trump she REGRETS opening borders to migrants

ANGELA Merkel sensationally told Donald Trump she “wishes” she hadn’t let more than a million migrants into Germany, according to leaked transcripts of a call between the US President and the Australian leader.

Australian prime minister Malcolm Turnbull agreed with President Trump and added Mrs Merkel’s decision not to impose stricter border controls was “one of the big factors in the Brexit vote”.

In leaked transcripts of calls made by President Trump to foreign leaders during his first few days in office, the pair agree that “Germany is a mess” because of Mrs Merkel’s migrant policy.

President Trump said to Mr Turnbull: “Look at what has happened in Germany. Look at what is happening in these countries. These people are crazy to let this happen. I spoke to Merkel today, and believe me, she wishes she did not do it. Germany is a mess because of what happened.”

Aldi pulls eggs from German stores over fipronil poison fear

Supermarket giant Aldi has withdrawn all eggs from sale from its stores in Germany as they may have been contaminated by insecticide.

Tests showed that the chemical fipronil, which can harm people's kidneys, liver and thyroid glands, was found in eggs from the Netherlands.

Fipronil is used to treat lice and ticks in chickens.

One German official said up to 10 million of the contaminated eggs may have been sold in Germany.

Germany’s Spying Scandal—Why It Should Alarm You

“While the U.S. media did not cover the scandal in great detail, it created a huge splash in the German media,” wrote Trumpet editor in chief Gerald Flurry. “This whipped the German public up into a frenzy, which politicians exploited” (Trumpet, October 2014).

“Spying on friends is not acceptable,” Ms. Merkel said at the time. Her government declared that its foreign intelligence network, the bnd, has never spied on the United States.

Which is why a June 22 Spiegel report should be deeply embarrassing to her.

“Documents that Spiegel has been able to review show that the bnd, until a few years ago, actually had considerable interest in the United States as a target of espionage.”

DIESEL CRISIS: Merkel holidays as German officials make desperate bid to save car industry

It comes as Angela Merkel is looking to retain power in parliamentary elections in less than two months’ time.

But despite the huge pressure the chancellor is facing, she hasn’t bothered to return to Germany for the make-or-break talks - which could have a huge impact on her bid to retain the chancellorship.

The politicians present must strike a balance between standing up to the companies accused of unethical behaviour for allegedly failing to acknowledge the seriousness of air pollution, while also maintaining relations with an industry that employs around 800,000 people and is widely considered a source of national pride.
