Head Lobbyist What’s In Charge

You know, kind of like ex-chancellor Gerhard Schroeder (SPD) being Gazprom’s top lobbyist?

Ain’t no big deal. The Greens are from the government and here to help, after all. They’re perfectly willing to turn a blind left eye to any conflict of interest or other ethical concerns in order to “save the planet.” The ends justify the means.

Germany’s foreign minister is facing domestic criticism over her surprise decision to recruit the head of Greenpeace as an international environmental envoy, including accusations she bent the rules to create the post and had obscured the divide between governing and lobbying…

She will reportedly receive a salary in line with that earned by bureaucrats of a similar rank, of almost €15,000 a month.

Morgan will have to also undergo a security check by Germany’s intelligence services, with some critics suggesting it may be difficult for her to distance herself from Greenpeace protest initiatives where its activists have clashed with the law.

Or valenki. Or whatever it is he’s wearing right now.

Germany is threatening Russia with dialogue again. That’s what moral superpowers do.

Annalena Baerbock: the German minister staring down Russia over Ukraine – New foreign minister won critics’ respect after meeting with Sergei Lavrov, but has work cut out in push for diplomacy.

German Of The Day: Plagiat

That means plagiarism.

Ask Green candidate Annalena Baerbock. She’ll give you a better definition. After copying it out of somebody elses’s book somewhere, that is. Plagiarism is the practice of using or copying someone else’s idea or work and pretending that you thought of it or created it. A plagiarism is an idea or a piece of writing or music that has been secretly copied from someone else’s work. This is a very popular pastime with German politicians these days. A real craze.

German Greens say plagiarism claims are ‘character assassination’ – Party hires prominent libel lawyer to defend its lead candidate, Annalena Baerbock, against allegations.

German Of The Day: Abstürzen

That means to fall, plummet, crash.

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.

German Greens Decide It’s Time To Finally Have A Woman As Chancellor

They’re progressive or something.

And she won’t remove that mask until she gets elected. It heightens the suspense, I’m told.

For the first time in their party’s four-decade history, the German Greens have announced a candidate to run as chancellor.

Equally historic is the central role the Greens will play in September’s general election.

On Monday, the Green Party announced that 40-year-old Annalena Baerbock would be its choice to take over from Angela Merkel after September’s election.
