More Engineers And Scientists Are On The Way

Thanks to Germany’s clever immigration policy.

The avalanche Angela Merkel set off back in 2015 is finally starting to pay off!

Shortage of engineers, scientists threatens German industry – Germany’s homegrown population is declining, and with it the number of science and engineering students.

German engineering is known worldwide for its quality and innovation. But that brand is under threat. The number of students beginning university degrees in STEM fields — shorthand for science, technology, engineering, and math — fell 6% in just one year, according to a recent study from the nation’s federal statistics agency.

Germany Debates

And debates, and debates. But they never deport anybody.

And everybody who comes here knows it. That’s one of the main reasons they come. It’s a little game the Germans play; pretending they are a country that deports people who have come here to break the law.

Germany debates tougher deportation rules – A deadly knife attack on a German regional train has triggered a debate on deportation laws and their application. The suspect, a Palestinian, was living in Germany despite his criminal record.

Two weeks ago, a knife attack shook Germany when a man traveling on a regional train headed for Hamburg randomly stabbed passengers, killing two of them.

The alleged perpetrator, 33-year-old Ibrahim A.*, was known to the police, as he had multiple prior convictions for assault. He had just been released from detention, although he had nowhere to go.

German Of The Day: Hybrid Identities

That means… The hell if I know.

Other than maybe meaning German citizenship will soon be selling like heiße Kuchen (hotcakes). Of course, it could also mean “lets let our own German identity roll over and die.”

Hybrid identities’: why Germany is updating its citizenship rules – The draft law would allow people to apply for citizenship after just five years of residence in Germany, rather than eight years currently. It also states that: “Those who have made a particular effort to integrate — such as becoming proficient in German, doing voluntary work or performing well in school — can apply after three years.”

“The idea that you have only one homeland is completely outdated.”

Since The Suspect Must Remain Innocent Until Proven Innocent

And since the policies which allowed the suspect to be in the country in the first place must remain above reproach…

It’s time to consider tougher knife control laws in Germany again.

Palestinian man arrested for deadly stabbing spree on German train – A knife-wielding man described as a stateless Palestinian fatally stabbed two passengers and injured seven others on a train in northern Germany before being grabbed by members of the public and arrested by police, officials say. The motive of the attack was not immediately known.

Germany’s Population Is Booming

It’s at an “all-time high.” Due to illegal immigration (AKA “migration”).

Doctors, engineers and other desperately needed Fachkräfte (specialists, professionals) keep pouring in over the non-border by the tens of thousands (a mid-size German city every year). Thumbs up, Germany.

German population hits all-time high – According to official statistics, the number of people living in the EU’s largest nation grew due to record migration.

Germans And Their Knives

This happens here all the time. When is Germany finally going to introduce stricter knife control laws?

2 killed in stabbing in southwest Germany, suspect detained – Police say two people have been killed and another seriously wounded in a stabbing in southwestern Germany.

The 25-year-old suspect, a Somali citizen, initially fled the scene and was detained in a drugstore…

Border Checks?

In Germany? To “prevent potential perpetrators of violence” from entering the country?

It’s far too late for that, I’m afraid. And since when does Germany have borders?

Germany to introduce some border checks during G7 summit – Germany says it will temporarily introduce some border controls as the country gets ready to host the Group of Seven summit later this month in the Bavarian Alps

“The controls are intended to prevent potential perpetrators of violence from entering German territory, the statement said, adding that ”travelers must therefore expect to be subject to checks during this period.”

After Firing Two More Arab Employees Deutsche Welle Reports That Germans Are Less Skeptical Of Immigration

That makes five Arab journalists fired so far. The Deutsche Welle has become much less skeptical about firing them, I guess.

Germans less skeptical of immigration – People across Germany have become more accepting of refugees and migrants since the pivotal year 2015. But the latest study by the Bertelsmann Foundation shows that reservations remain.

Germans have overall become more accepting of refugees. But over one-third of respondents (36%) believe that Germany cannot take in any more of them. In 2017, that number stood at 54%. Currently, 20% consider the refugees to be “temporary guests” who do not need to be integrated into society.

All Countries Other Than Germany High Risk

As for Germany, it’s super-mega-ultra high risk.

No risk, no fun.

Coronavirus digest: Germany designates all neighboring countries ‘high risk’ – Germany has put Austria on its travel warning list, meaning all of its neighbors are now designated high-risk. Meanwhile, several Latin American countries have reported record daily infections.

The Merkel Legacy Lives On

Oh, these wonderful German Christmas markets. The smell of gingerbread and mulled wine. Sweet almonds, decorated wood stands, cops with machine guns, security barriers, memorial ceremonies…

It’s that cozy Christmas feeling again!

5 years later, Germany remembers victims of Berlin Christmas market terror attack – On December 19, 2016, Islamist attacker Anis Amri drove a stolen truck through a crowd in central Berlin, killing and injuring dozens. Five years later, the background to the attack remains unclear.
