Lockdown, Lockdown Light, Lockdown 2, Mega-Lockdown…

Angela Merkel is preparing her subjects for the next phase of effective government measures against COVID-19: The Mega-Lockdown.

Lockdown

Still remember, my fellow Americans? It has been a few weeks after all. As mainstream media repeatedly preached to us about Germany having the Corona pandemic under control?

It sure is reassuring to know that people like Angie & Co. are from the government and they’re here to help.

Merkel wants ‘very fast action‘ against virus after record deaths.

While Germany’s total deaths per capita since the start of the pandemic remain far lower than in the United States, its daily per capita mortality since mid-December has often exceeded the U.S. rate.

“The virus can only be stopped with additional efforts.”

Nearly One Percent Of German Population Already Vaccinated!

And we didn’t order nealy enough vaccine. And we’re out right now. And we will have to extend this latest lockdown into February, March, maybe into May.

Vaccinations

But don’t worry. We’ve got everything under control.

Germany battles one of the toughest pandemic stages — health minister – It will take months for the benefits of the vaccination drive to kick in for Germany as a whole, according to Health Minister Jens Spahn. He warned the lockdown would need to be extended into February and perhaps beyond.

Large-scale benefits of the vaccination drive still months away.

Where’s The Extinction Rebellion When You Need Them?

The Germans could use a little help here.

Baby

Germany population flatlines for first time in decade – Germany’s statistics agency says there’s been no increase in population for the first time in a decade, with more deaths and lower immigration.

In the three decades since German reunification, the population has — with only a few exceptions — tended to increase. However, this population growth has resulted exclusively from positive net immigration. Without more people immigrating than emigrating, the population would have been shrinking since 1972 with more deaths than births in every year since then. Germany’s birth or fertility rates have been well below global and even European averages ever since the Second World War.

German Of The Day: Problematisch

That means problematic.

Trump

Germany’s Merkel: Trump’s Twitter eviction ‘problematic’ – Chancellor Angela Merkel’s spokesman says the German leader considers the U_S_ President Donald Trump’s eviction from Twitter by the company “problematic.”

“This fundamental right can be intervened in, but according to the law and within the framework defined by legislators — not according to a decision by the management of social media platforms. Seen from this angle, the chancellor considers it problematic that the accounts of the U.S. president have now been permanently blocked.”

 

Germans Fear Trump Supporters Might Storm The Reichstag

I mean, the Bundestag. Some kind of tag. And maybe burn it down or something too. Been there done that, you know?

Trump

That’s why they are increasing police protection there. Looks like up to a dozen more cops or so. Wow. You can never be too careful when it comes to Trump supporters, after all. Here in Germany.

By the way, Trump supporters already stormed the place back in August only they weren’t Trump supporters so there was no moral outrage or hand-wringing concern at that time. Sensibilities can change though, I guess.

Berliner Polizei verstärkt Schutz des Bundestags.

Diverse German Storms To Get Diverse German Storm Names

Only they’re not German. The names. You can’t make this stuff up, people.

Storm

Even the weather in Germany must submit to the dictates of the Diversity Cult.

Move over, Siegfried. Ahmet is on the way.

A journalists’ group has named a low pressure system bringing low temperatures, dark clouds and snow to Germany after the boy’s name of Turkish origin in an effort to increase the visibility of the country’s increasingly diverse population.

“So far, our weather had mostly typical German names only, even though 26% of people in Germany have migrant roots.”

Cars That Don’t Emit CO2 Doing Irreversible Harm To The Environment

In German Unicorn-Land they can, at least.

Cars

All roads lead to irreversible harm to the environment here. It’s not easy to do these kind of mental mind twists but anybody can do them eventually if you try.

‘He’s a risk-taker’: Germans divided over Elon Musk’s new GigaFactory – The Tesla project will put Grünheide on the map, but some say it is doing ‘irreversible’ harm to the environment.

PS: Germans don’t like risk. How could they like a risk-taker?

The True Religion

In Germany: The state.

Church

Do what we tell you to do or else. Amen.

Coronavirus: German police raid church service with over 100 maskless worshippers – Police said they arrived on the scene to find dozens of churchgoers flouting coronavirus lockdown rules that ban singing and require people to keep their distance.

 

How To Identify Hackers

They always wear dark leather gloves while hacking.

Gloves

And they also knock out the wrong news organizations. Hasn’t anybody ever told them about CNN, the New York Times, the Washington Post and all the rest?

Germany: ‘Colossal’ cyberattack knocks out Funke news group – Hackers knocked out one of Germany’s biggest news organizations over the Christmas holiday. Such criminal attacks, which often come with ransom demands, have become a lucrative business model.
