Berliners love the smell of left-wing radical madness in Berlin in the morning. They must. Nobody in the red-redder-green Berlin government here plans to do anything about it.
Berlin: ‘Rigaer Strasse’ Looks Like War Zone After Attacks Against Police – A day before fire safety experts are supposed to check an illegally occupied apartment block in Rigaer Strasse, left-wing radicals attacked police officers from roofs, by throwing stones and firecrackers at them. As many as 60 officers were injured.
“People who set tires on fire are not fighting for open spaces used by left-wingers, but harass their own neighborhood.”
Thou shall not fly. Thou shall not participate in free trade…
Bans, prohibitions, Verbote. That’s what green folks do best. And Germany’s latest Green Moses just came down from the mountain. It is election season in Germany, after all. Time for more true Green religion.
German business lobby group defends its mocking of Greens leader – A German business lobby group on Tuesday defended a controversial campaign in which it portrays Greens chancellor candidate Annalena Baerbock dressed as a biblical Moses, holding two tablets under the caption “Annalena and the 10 bans.”
In its campaign, lobby group INSM attacks the Greens’ policies to steer Germans into electric cars and onto trains instead of domestic flights. But its portrayal of Baerbock as Moses has met criticism and accusations of anti-Semitism.
They want to save face. No, that’s precisely what they do not want. They don’t want their faces saved. Only if they are in a save place. I mean safe, of course.
Let’s face it. If you take what they say at face value, this means they don’t want companies like Clearview AI all up in their face. And they’re not joking either. They’re demanding that they get their faces back with a straight face.
How I Lost Control Over My Own Face – A company called Clearview AI secretly scrapes the internet for photos, thus producing a gigantic database for government agencies and police. Is it possible to remove yourself from the collection?
And as noted repeatedly in the past, that’s what the German Greens love to do, right before any big election comes along. There will be one here in the Fall.
It has become a real tradition with them. Whenever they are doing well in the polls, and they were up until a few weeks ago, they do one or two stupid things to remind the electorate about how clueless they are. Now their numbers are plummeting big time.
Their front woman (it seems the Greens believe it is finally time for Germany to have a woman chancellor) got caught failing to report her 25,000 euro “Corona bonus” to the taxman. Her CV doesn’t stand up to objective scrutiny either. Meanwhile, their resentful male number two has been stumbling around in Ukraine demonstrating to the German voter how naive he is. Or green behind the ears, if you prefer. Bring on the elections! Now. Bitte.
Der eine stolpert mit Stahlhelm durch die Ukraine und offenbart seine außenpolitische Unbedarftheit. Die andere vergisst, dem Bundestag Sonderzahlungen von mehr als 25.000 Euro zu melden, und kämpft mit ihrem eigenen Lebenslauf, der offenkundig nicht nur lückenhaft, sondern auch geschönt war.
The Americans are new to knuckling under with a wave of a feather and still need a lot of coaching.
Secretary of State Antony Blinken said Tuesday that Germany was cooperating to mitigate effects of major pipeline from Russia after a US decision to waive sanctions drew wide criticism.
President Joe Biden’s administration last month decided not to enforce sanctions against the builder of Nord Stream 2, which will supply energy-hungry Germany, drawing praise from Moscow ahead of his summit with President Vladimir Putin on June 16.
It’s just like the Dead Rat Bounce. I mean Cat. Only smellier. And not as bouncy.
On the eve of President Joe Biden’s trip to Europe, the survey by the German Marshall Fund and the Bertelsmann Foundation said he had not won back the standing of the United States as it was before COVID-19 struck. China’s reputation had risen slightly…
Only 51% of Germans see the United States as a reliable partner, rising to 60% in France, 67% in Britain and 76% in Poland. Fewer than a quarter of Turks trust the United States. Most Americans regard the European Union as a reliable partner, the study said.
But they are doing so in a way that will help create the illusion that the current Banana Republican administration in Washington has something to say in the matter.
Germany, U.S. hold talks in Washington on Nord Stream 2, Berlin says – Germany and the United States are holding talks in Washington to try to resolve a row over the Nord Stream 2 gas pipeline, German Foreign Minister Heiko Maas said on Tuesday…
Russia’s Gazprom (GAZP.MM) and its Western partners are racing to finish the Nord Stream 2 pipeline under the Baltic Sea. The project, now about 95% complete, would bypass Ukraine, potentially depriving it of lucrative transit fees and undermining its struggle against Russian aggression.
