Experts Frustrated?

Well, we certainly don’t want that, do we?

It’s a terrible thing for experts when “misunderstandings” still persist. It makes them look bad. And that would only cause them more frustration.

Experts frustrated as German footballer says he has not had Covid jab – Immunologists say Bayern Munich’s Joshua Kimmich is mistaken and vaccine misunderstandings persist.

I have concerns about the lack of long-term studies.”

The World May Think Germany Is Hunky-Dory

But you can bet that’s only because the pollsters didn’t bother to ask any Germans.

Woke Germans (the only ones who count) love to hate Germany more than woke Americans love to hate US-Amerika (AKA The Banana Republic), if you can imagine that.

Soft Power: Germany Gets Record-High Approval From World – The world’s approval of Germany’s leadership during Chancellor Angela Merkel’s last full year in office in 2020 hit a new record high, not only for Germany, but for any global leader in more than a decade. The 52% median approval rating for Germany’s leadership in 2020 towered above ratings for Russia (34%), China (30%) and the U.S. (30%).

The FDP Decides

It seems pretty clear to me who the next German Finance Minister will be.

Their boss, Christian Linder, will get the job. If he doesn’t, it won’t come to this odd coalition of SPD, Greens and FDP.

Lindner and the FDP stand for low taxes, debt limitation and a hard line towards Germany’s European partners. The climate crisis is to be addressed by private investment and carbon pricing. The Greens, by contrast, have put climate first – and for that reason advocate large-scale investment, lifting Germany’s “debt brake”, and a pro-European policy that continues the steps taken in 2020 towards common, debt-financed investment policy. It is precisely in these policy areas – where the differences between the Greens (and the SPD) and the FDP are greatest – that the finance ministry is critical.

Damning Press Reports

CNN actually got that right for once. If they wouldn’t have got him fired with this damning press report, they would have got him with another one.

German media group fires BILD editor after damning press reports – The German media group Axel Springer said on Monday that it has fired the editor-in-chief of the BILD newspaper, Julian Reichelt, for failing to “to maintain a clear boundary between private and professional matters” and being “untruthful to the Executive Board.”

That this guy could have survived as long as he did is the real story. His paper printed damning, un-woke, politically incorrect reports all the time. It was real journalism, in other words. He had to be cancelled at all costs, you see. That it took so long should gives one hope for the future.

Merkel Germany Still Has Merkel Migrant Madness Under Control

Not. Nor will they get it under control once she finally leaves.

Everybody but the Germans know that everybody knows they can come to Germany knowing the Germans know they won’t and don’t know how stop it, you know?

Germany still top destination for asylum-seekers in Europe – The number of asylum applications in Germany has risen again this year. Along with traditional routes through Greece, Italy and Spain, Belarus has become a major migration route in the last few months.

Stricter Lego Gun Control Needed

In Germany.

And bow-and-arrow control too, while you’re at it. How about better crazy control? Could we try that for once?

A teenager triggered a large scale police operation after a restaurant owner mistook a toy gun he was carrying for a real weapon.

A witness raised the alarm after seeing the 15 year old, who was wearing a camouflage outfit and holding what appeared to be a rifle, running up and down the street in the southern German town of Lindau.

“Of course, we had to go immediately,” an officer from Lindau police told Lindauer Zeitung.

Because They’re Homeopathetic

And mystics. Germans are. Until reality bites them in the you-know-what. Keep an eye on the current Green renewable utopia madness grippng the country, if you don’t believe me. And what will become of it in the coming months and years.

Homeopathy Doesn’t Work. So Why Do So Many Germans Believe in It?

How Natalie Grams, who once abandoned her medical education to study alternative therapies, became Germany’s most prominent homeopathy skeptic.

Then one day in 2013 at a nearby lake, Grams fell violently ill with a viral infection…

Shadowy

And highly unprofitable for Heckler & Koch & Co.

The Shadowy, Homemade Weapons Community Just Keeps on Growing – The right-wing extremist attacker from Halle had numerous homemade weapons with him on his shooting spree. But their quality was poor. Others, though, are perfecting the reliability of 3D-printed weapons – and have moved on to rocket launchers.

“It’s Not About Pressure”

“It’s about fairness.” And while we’re at it: War is peace. Freedom is slavery. Ignorance is strength.

Germany’s new COVID rules, explained – New rules are coming into force as Germany continues its battle against the coronavirus. Infection rates remain stable and many are ready to reopen — but 3 million remain unvaccinated, and health experts are still wary.

As of Monday, the cost of rapid antigen tests is no longer covered by the state… Starting November 1, unvaccinated people will not receive compensation for lost pay if coronavirus measures force them to quarantine…

“It is not about pressure, it is about fairness.”

German Of The Day: Vermasselt

That means botched.

Merkel’s botched succession: how Germany’s leader failed to keep her party in power – Longstanding chancellor accused of neglecting CDU and losing support of party’s rightwing.

The CDU stopped being conservative, or rightwing if you prefer, long ago. And it’s all her doing. It’s called the Merkel Method: She takes the wind out of her opponents’ sails by becoming more Green than the Greens and more Red than the Reds (SPD). The downside, of course, is that by doing so over the years she turned the CDU into them.
