  • Real Crime, Fake News on German Crime Statistics

    The following video features a press conference held by German Interior Minister Thomas de Maizière in which he summarizes the country’s crime statistics for 2016. Mr. de Maizière does his best to spin the facts in such a way that the “refugees” don’t end up looking quite so criminal, but he can’t completely hide the reality of the numbers. To mitigate all those embarrassing un-PC statistics, he makes a point of emphasizing politically motivated right-wing crime as an important component of the report. Many thanks to Egri Nök for the translation, and to Vlad Tepes for the subtitling:
  • German foreign minister refers to 'nepotism' regarding Ivanka Trump's role

    The New Indian Express ^ | April 29, 2017 | Agence France-Presse
    BERLIN: German Foreign Minister Sigmar Gabriel Saturday criticised Ivanka Trump's role as an adviser to her father in the White House, describing it as a form of "nepotism." "For me there are things that remain strange, like for example the visit of his daughter to Germany which was treated almost like a world event, while the mix of politics with family and business reminds us instead of nepotism and would be unimaginable here," he said. Gabriel was referring to the visit to Berlin of Ivanka Trump this week to take part in a women's empowerment summit at the invitation of...
  • German economy booms as protectionist threat goes pop

    When port manager Axel Mattern looks out onto the Elbe River from his office in Hamburg's historic warehouse district, he can literally count the rising number of container ships leaving Germany's biggest harbour. There is an export boom underway, the ships tell him. China, in particular, is "buzzing", Mattern says. The sharp increase in demand for "Made in Germany" goods from around the world is pushing Europe's largest economy into overdrive -- and, not coincidently, helping dispel worries about rising protectionism under U.S. President Donald Trump. Some German companies are even considering expanding into the United States, while others reckon...

    Ivanka Trump, President Donald Trump’s oldest daughter, made her first oversees trip as a White House adviser earlier this week. As for how the trip went, it depends on who you ask. U.S. media outlets widely reported that the crowd Ivanka Trump spoke to at the Women’s 20 Summit in Berlin, Germany, “booed” and “hissed” at her when she defended her father for his stance on issues such as paid leave. “That is something I’m very proud of … long before he came into the presidency, he championed this in the primaries. He’s been a tremendous champion of supporting families...
  • German Paper: US Media Got It Wrong, Ivanka Wasn’t Booed

    US media reports that Ivanka Trump was booed in Germany are false, according to German paper Bild. “Many people were surprised by Ivanka Trump’s performance in Berlin. Contrary to the stereotype, the daughter of the US President made a sophisticated and level-headed impression at the panel discussion with Chancellor Angela Merkel, Queen Máxima of the Netherlands, and head of the IMF, Christine Lagarde. The glamorous White House ambassador also cleverly handled a controversial issue,” the paper reports. “US media, however, are focusing on something else: they claim that Ivanka was booed and sneered at.” According to the paper, there was...

    Time Magazine ^ | April 25, 2017 | Simon Shuster in Berlin
    Ivanka Trump had been speaking for less than five minutes on Tuesday before the jeers started coming from the audience. Given the topic and venue, they seemed almost inevitable. At the invitation of German Chancellor Angela Merkel, the First Daughter of the United States had come to Berlin for a roundtable discussion on the empowerment of women, a subject that was sure to clash with the sexist and vulgar remarks her father has made about women in the past. Sure enough, when she referred to President Donald Trump as a “tremendous champion” of women’s rights, particularly the right to take...

    Ivanka Trump is set to make her debut on the world stage Tuesday with her first official foreign trip to attend the W20 Summit in Germany, where she will be received not only as first daughter –- but as one of the closest, most trusted advisers to the president of the United States. While President Trump's nationalist campaign rhetoric may have rattled Europe, his globalist and polished 35-year-old daughter may be able to smooth her father's image before his trip to Europe next month to attend the NATO and G-7 summits. "There is really no greater emissary than a family...

    In Germany, in 1933, two men came to power... The first man, of course, was Adolf Hitler... The other man was Clemens August Graf von Galen, a towering giant of a man who later in 1933 was named bishop of Münster. Under the Nazis, he battled racial bias, the Nazi corruption of Church teaching and most notably the state-sanctioned program of euthanasia to kill off so-called “useless eaters” and burdens on the state.

    Global freight forwarder Senator International plans to invest nearly $7.4 million over five years to establish a new facility in Spartanburg County and create 100 jobs. The company, headquartered in Hamburg, Germany, has signed a lease on 181,440 square feet of Spartanburg-based Johnson Development Associates’ more than 362,000-square-foot speculative, or spec, building at 769 Flatwood Industrial Drive. Senator International signs were placed near the property’s entrance Monday. The building sits on 53 acres of Johnson Development’s 1,400-acre Flatwood Industrial Park in northern Spartanburg County beside Rite Aid’s 900,000-square-foot distribution center. In its fourth quarter report, Greenville-based commercial broker Lee &...

    German tanks during World War II were often outmatched by superior Red Army designs beginning with the T-34. Armor, reliability and firepower were all—at various times—serious shortcomings. To counteract the Soviet beasts, Germany rushed ahead with tank destroyers—armored vehicles designed to inflict long-range firepower from concealed positions—but these also had a mixed record. The introduction of the Ferdinand during the 1943 Battle of Kursk turned into a disaster as the vehicles broke down from mechanical failures.
  • After Admitting Over One Million Migrants into Germany Merkel Admits Many are Terrorists

    In February Angela Merkel told reporters, “Islam is not the source of terror.” This week, after Islamists tried to blow up a bus carrying a top German soccer team, Merkel told reporters that “there is no doubt” that some refugees pose a security threat. Germany, a country of 80 million, received over one million migrants and unvetted “refugees” in 2015. Chancellor Angela Merkel expected another million migrants in 2016. German leftists greet Muslim refugees to Germany with cheers. In 2016 Islamic extremists murdered 22 people in Germany in seven different attacks.

    The case of a British Jewish child forced to leave his Berlin school after being subjected to anti-Semitic violence has provoked outrage and soul-searching in Germany. The 14-year-old, who cannot be named under child protection laws, was beaten, kicked and threatened with a replica gun after he revealed to fellow pupils that he was Jewish. *snip* His British mother, who asked not to be named to protect the identity of her son, told the The Daily Telegraph the school had done little to stop the bullying. “They told us this is normal for adolescents from this background, that they’re just...

    German Chancellor Angela Merkel has finally confessed that there is “no doubt” some of the migrants she invited into Europe are terrorists, following another deadly terror attack by a bogus asylum seeker in Stockholm, Sweden. “Many people are convinced that the refugee influx has made our country more unsafe,” journalists from the Funke newspaper group told the chancellor, in a wide-ranging interview which also covered Syria, North Korea, and the upcoming federal elections.

    The General Secretary of the German Social Democrats, led by former European Parliament President Martin Schulz, has said she wants Britain to hold a second referendum on EU membership now that it knows “what a Brexit would mean”. Katarina Barley, one of the most senior leaders of the party which operates as the main rivals to Angela Merkel’s ‘centre-right’ coalition, said: “When the referendum was held, nobody really knew what it would be about — not the British people, not even the political class.”

    Islamic headscarf a shroud of death for a free society,’ says former radical Feminist Zana Ramadani. With her book The Veiled Threat dealing with the plight of Muslim women in Europe, former radical feminist Zana Ramadani has kicked the Islamist hornets’ nest in Germany. Being born a Muslim herself, Ramadani is fearful of her life after receiving countless death threats from radical Muslims in Germany ... Once a darling of the left, Ramadani quickly fell out of favour with German liberals once she started criticising the oppression of women within Islam. Her fellow feminists accused her of being a racist...

    A new report by the OECD reveals that Germany is second only to Belgium when it comes to high tax rates in developed countries worldwide. The Organization for Economic Cooperation and Development (OECD) reported on Tuesday that Germany has the second highest tax rate after Belgium, when comparing 35 developed countries around the world. The OECD calculated each country’s tax wedge — the gap between what employers take home in pay and what it costs to employ them, including personal income tax and social security contributions. Germany had a tax wedge for single, childless workers of 49.4 percent, behind Belgium...

    Berlin’s neutrality law is most often discussed in relation to the Islamic headscarf. But one Christian teacher has found that it applies to other religions as well. A Protestant teacher working in the Wedding district of Berlin was told to immediately stop wearing her cross necklace, the German Catholic News Agency (KNA) reported on Tuesday. Consistorial president of the Berlin-Brandenburg Protestant Church Jörg Antoine confirmed last week that the woman had been given the instructions, which were based on Berlin’s neutrality law that prohibits teachers and other public sector workers from wearing religious symbols. The neutrality law has generally applied...
