It won’t be China. German warships usually go kaputt, you know. And the German Navy doesn’t really, well, exist.
Although if the Germans ask the Chinese really nicely…
German warship ‘Bayern’ heads to the Indo-Pacific – The German navy’s frigate “Bayern” set sail on Monday for the Indo-Pacific region, fully loaded with Berlin’s aspirations to play a small role in the geopolitical standoff between China and the West.
The first such deployment in almost 20 years is meant to uphold freedom of navigation in international waters, protect “open societies” and express support for regional partners sharing Germany’s values, Defense Minister Annegret Kramp-Karrenbauer was quoted as saying in a statement.
And for refusing to think correctly. A dangerous mix indeed.
Berlin protesters decry coronavirus measures; 600 detained – Local authorities had banned several different protests this weekend, including one from the Stuttgart-based Querdenker movement, but protesters in Berlin defied the ban.
As one high-level Arrogance Expert noted: “If practically all experts worldwide say the coronavirus is dangerous and vaccination helps, then who actually has the right to say, ‘Actually, I’m smarter than that?’ To me, that is an almost unbearable level of arrogance.”
You know, as in Berlin court bans anti-lockdown protests?
These Querdenker (people who think outside the box) keep thinking outside the box so it’s time to box them up and move them out.
Judges in the German capital have moved to ban a number of weekend demonstrations amid fears they will lead to a rise in coronavirus infections. Police expect protesters to travel to Berlin nonetheless…
The upper court said the Querdenker movement was characterized throughout Germany “by the fact that the participants used them to violate legal norms created to contain the risk of infection in a way that attracted public attention, in particular by disregarding the social distance requirement and the mask requirement.”
It’s a verboten word, of course. That’s why anyone using it must be publically tried and found guilty in the media courtroom. More fake moral outrage, in other words. Yawn.
A German Cycling Official Apologizes After Shouting A Racial Slur During A Race – TV cameras picked up a German cycling official yelling a racial slur during the men’s time trial Wednesday at the Tokyo Olympics, prompting an apology from the official and a reaction from at least two of the cyclists involved…
At the time, Arndt was trying to catch rival riders from Algeria and Eritrea. Looking on, Moster shouted, “Get the camel drivers” several times, according to Deutsche Welle.
But you Germans stay out. Of Germany. Or at least go into quarantine for two weeks.
Germans face tougher Covid checks at own border – Germany plans to tighten the rules for returning holidaymakers amid growing concerns in northern Europe over a sharp rise in infections being brought back by tourists.
That means farewell tour. That’s right. Angela Merkel is farewell touring these days.
And she won’t be satisfied until the tour is over and she has left her party, the CDU, in a shambles as she walks out the door and turns off the light. She has spent the last sixteen years taking the wind out of opposition parties’ sails – through compromizing her own party’s principles – and has not only managed to destroy the SPD (Social Democrats), for instance, she has turned her once conservative CDU into the new SPD. Conservative CDU voters are perfectly aware of this, of course, and the polls for the upcoming election are showing it. And that’s one of the reasons why her hand-picked mini-Merkel-man, Armin Laschet, does not exactly inspire confidence with the German electorate. This election might just get ugly, in other words. But Merkel will be fein raus (gone and off the hook). Can’t wait for books to come out. Not.
Merkels Abschied vom Kanzleramt: Was kommt nach der Bundestagswahl? „Werde mit der Zeit schon was anfangen können.“
No. Not those kind. Although… What’s the difference in the end?
German female gymnasts will choose whether they want to wear full body-suits in Sunday’s qualifications at the Tokyo Olympics after receiving accolades for donning the outfits in the past in a stand against the sexualisation of their sport.
Sleepy Joe’s latest brilliant geopolitical chess move has the Russians shaking in their boots. Well, at least shaking their sides in laughter.
U.S., Germany strike a deal to allow completion of controversial Russian Nord Stream 2 pipeline – “Should Russia attempt to use energy as a weapon or commit further aggressive acts against Ukraine, Germany will take action at the national level and press for effective measures at the European level, including sanctions to limit Russian export capabilities to Europe in the energy sector.”
Cell broadcasts and other mobile phone disaster alerts are dangerous. Whoever does the broadcast has your data. You know, like your telephone number? And they could reach you if they wanted to, which is the point. To save your life, for example. But Germans don’t want that. After they save your life what happens then? What happens to the data? Who regulates it? A complete, unauthorized stranger could save your life next and nobody wants that. No, thanks. Data privacy comes first in this country, pal.
German authorities faced pressure on Tuesday to set aside longstanding privacy concerns and send mobile phone alerts directly to people in potential disaster zones following the devastation wrought by last week’s catastrophic floods.
Warnung per “Cell Broadcast”: Viele Länder setzten auf das System, das per Mobilfunk in Sekunden fast die komplette Bevölkerung erreichen kann. Deutschland aber wählte eine andere Technologie.
