    BERLIN (AP) — Women in Berlin will soon be allowed to go topless at the city’s public swimming pools, like men, the Berlin state government said Thursday. The new bathing rules allowing everyone to go swimming without covering their torsos followed a discrimination complaint by a woman who was not allowed to go topless in a swimming pool in the capital. The woman, whose identity was not revealed, had turned to the senate’s ombudsperson’s office for equal treatment to demand that women, like men, can swim topless, the Berlin senate for justice, diversity and anti-discrimination said in a written statement....

    Leftism is at war with reality: women are men, men are the first female admirals and champion female swimmers, Old Joe Biden is competent, capable and coherent, drag queens are suitable entertainers for primary school children, and on and on and on. But every war has its casualties, as Leftists are learning these days at Free University in Berlin. A sex offender has been running wild and harassing women there for weeks, but the university has warned the victims not to call the police. The reason why they shouldn’t is as obvious as it is outrageous: the sex offender is...

    Support for left-wing parties has collapsed in Berlin after elections were re-run in the city on Sunday over “errors” in the previous ballot. An election re-run in the German capital of Berlin has seen support for the political right surge, with the centrist Christian Democratic Union (CDU) seeing a seismic ten-point rise over the previous ballot. Although the city had already seen elections take place in 2021, numerous “errors” and other anomalies in the voting process eventually resulted in the ballot being struck down in court, with the vote finally being re-run on Sunday.

    BERLIN (AP) – Climate activists said Wednesday that they have sawn off the tip of the Christmas tree erected in front of Berlin’s iconic Brandenburg Gate. The group Last Generation said two of its members used a hydraulic lift and a hand saw to cut two meters (six feet) off the top of the 15-meter (50-foot) tree and hang up a banner stating: “This is only the tip of the Christmas tree.” German police confirmed the incident.

    The largest free standing aquarium in the world, containing close to 1,500 exotic fish, exploded early Friday morning in Berlin, injuries at least two people.

The AquaDom was housed in the main floor of the Radisson Collection hotel in Berlin’s DomAquarée business complex. "In addition to the unbelievable maritime damage... two people were injured by glass splinters," the city’s police tweeted. Over 100 firefighters were sent to the scene of the accident....

    In the New Hampshire town of Columbia, Sen. Maggie Hassan (D) received 1106 votes. Her opponent Don Bolduc (R) received 193 votes. The town of Columbia has a total population of 695 persons. New Hampshire Democratic Party Chairman Raymond Buckley attributed the numerical discrepancy to "the possibility that Democrats might have been more enthusiastic about voting than the Republicans were.' In Pennsylvania, on election night Delaware County Board of Elections officials routed a van carrying ballots to a closed building out of sight of poll watchers.

    Berlin’s city-state government has been ordered to rerun elections in the capital, a first in German history, after poor preparation and sloppy organisation caused a cascade of chaos on polling day last year. In a scathing ruling on Wednesday, Berlin’s highest court declared the September 26th, 2021, state poll invalid because of a series of “errors that were relevant for election mandates”. A new election is now required within 90 days for Berlin’s 147-seat state parliament, the senate; a similar decision is likely at federal level to rerun the election for some or all of Berlin’s 29 Bundestag seats. “The...

    A car drove into a crowd of people in a busy shopping district in western Berlin on Wednesday, killing at least one woman and leaving six others with life-threatening injuries, authorities said. More than a dozen people in total were injured when the driver ploughed into people on Kurfuerstendamm avenue, near the landmark Kaiser Wilhelm Memorial Church, at around 10:30 a.m. local time, according to the German capital's police and fire department. After slamming into the crowd, the small silver Renault careened toward Tauentzienstrasse, a tree-lined street popular with tourists, before crashing through a glass shop window.

    The war in Ukraine is driving a wedge between Russian speakers in Germany. Putin’s critics and supporters are fiercely divided. The conflict came to a head on May 9, which marked 77 years since Nazi Germany's surrender. Barricades, strict regulations, and thousands of police on duty: German authorities predicted May 9 would get heated. Commemorated as "Victory Day” in many former Soviet countries, the date marks 77 years since the surrender of Nazi Germany. But due to the war in Ukraine, the occasion took on a whole new meaning. The divide between Putin’s opponents and supporters was brought into...

    Germany’s addiction to Russian gas has come to backfire on the European state, with one minister saying that the country is now suffering ‘in the most brutal way’ thanks to the policymaking of previous administrations. Annalena Baerbock, a senior member of Germany’s Green party who is now serving as the country’s Federal Foreign Minister, has said that her nation is now suffering “in the most brutal way” as a result of its addiction to Russian gas. Baerbock’s comments come as German authorities prepare for Russia to cease its supply of gas to the country, after the G7 nation outright refused...

    A British operative was inserted into President Trump’s White House in an effort to tarnish President Trump’s image and then derail the 2020 Election audit efforts. We’ve previously reported that an individual named Don Berlin inserted a document into President Trump’s inner circle days before Jan 6 in an effort to set President Trump up for perceived insurrection. A summary of this document was then scooped up by the Jan 6 committee and shared with multiple media outlets in an attempt to claim he attempted an insurrection after the 2020 Election steal. We now know that Berlin wasn’t alone. Another...

    The police of the state of Berlin is a very diverse force. Of course, it also offers Turkish citizens professional prospects. And for these people – as for everyone else – freedom of opinion, art and religion applies. Tolga K. also belongs to this diverse force. He is a police officer with the Central Property Protection. A “German” police officer, mind you. Even if you don’t notice it in his YouTube videos and publications on social networks: he prefers to salute the Turkish flag rather than the German one. On the one hand, he took an oath on the Basic...

    Former President Donald Trump spoke with Laura Ingraham Wednesday night as Russian President Vladimir Putin launched his full-scale attack against Ukraine. Trump says “this is something that shouldn’t have happened,” and people are going to be “needlessly killed.” “This is something that should have never happened,” he said. “This would not have happened during my administration. In fact, some people were saying, why didn’t this take place over the past four years during my administration? And it didn’t for a very good reason. I’ll explain that to you someday. But it wouldn’t have taken place, and it wouldn’t have taken...

The unidentified girl who was travelling with her friends was initially racially abused when she refused to wear a mask after being told it was a legal requirement by the other passengers, reports claim. Die Welt notes that once the girl left the train...
