Humanitarian Aid

Just like the Banana Republic of America, Germany and the EU continue to support “humanitarian” NGOs who then funnel this money to Hamas & Co.

And just like the Banana Republic, these same concerned Europeans then condemn Israeli for defending itself with retaliation attacks.

Hamas, if you didn’t know, is just another name for the Iranian mullah regime. The rockets being fired from Gaza are made in Iran. Here too, the Banana Republic and Europe are doing everything in their power to restore the nuclear deal with Iran. This, we are led to believe, will promote peace in the Middle East. You can’t make this stuff up, people.

Deutschland hat den Kern des Krieges nicht erkannt.

Zero The Hero

Or Hero the Zero, if you prefer.

Zero

German of the day: Perfektionismus. That means perfectionism. But what it really means here in Germany these days is something else altogether. The Germans are now perfect at getting everything wrong. The days of German perfectionism are long gone and they are reminded of it daily.

Heroes to zeros: how German perfectionism wrecked its Covid vaccine drive – The same thoroughness that made Angela Merkel’s government a pandemic role model is now holding it back.

This time Angie let Brussels handle the vaccination planning, like a good European. BIG strategic blunder. That blew up in her face big time. But she can never get it right, really. The Germans are damned if they do (as in do it alone), damned if they don’t.

 

Roll Over And Die With Style

It’s as easy as climbing stairs.

Nord Stream 2

The Banana Republic’s Secretary of State may pretend like his country will see to it that Nord Stream 2 isn’t completed but it’s just empty posturing that won’t have any consequences and the Germans know it. Just like Vlad Putin and everybody else.

Germany is pushing for the pipeline’s completion, despite sustained U.S. opposition over more than a decade. The United States fears Russia could use Nord Stream 2 as leverage to weaken EU states by increasing dependency on Moscow.

“President (Joe) Biden has been very clear, he believes the pipeline is a bad idea, bad for Europe, bad for the United States, ultimately it is in contradiction to the EU’s own security goals,” Blinken said as he met NATO Secretary-General Jens Stoltenberg.

 

Self-Sufficient?

That’s pure nationalism! And you call yourselves good Europeans. All day long.

Self

Germany seeks to be vaccine self-sufficient by next year – From 2022, Germany should be able to produce enough of its own vaccines to inoculate the whole population in the case of a pandemic, a top official said on Saturday.

Vaccination commissioner Christoph Krupp told newspapers of the Funke Media Group that, by May, a government task force would put forward a concept to achieve the goal of setting up a state-guaranteed system for vaccine production.

Europe, That’s What Went Wrong

Germany’s COVID management: World wonders what’s gone wrong – A year ago, Germany was effusively praised for its coronavirus response. Nobody would think to do that now. If anything, the international view today is a mixture of astonishment and schadenfreude.

Germany

As reported earlier“Germany is the architect of the European failure because Germany and Merkel were behind pushing for the European process that was a failure from the beginning.”

Europe “ought” to work. But it doesn’t. Then the real world bites back.

Nice Europeans

Come in last.

Nice

Germany should have led the world at handling the pandemic. But experts slam Merkel’s vaccine response as a disaster.

“Germany is the architect of the European failure because Germany and Merkel were behind pushing for the European process that was a failure from the beginning,” Julian Reichelt, the managing editor of Germany’s largest selling tabloid newspaper Bild, told CNN.

“She wanted to make it all about Europe and her being a great European,” he says.

Unhappy?

Who cares? You didn’t vote for me. As a matter of fact, nobody did. Other than non-elected officials like me, that is.

Unhappy

You can’t fire me. And I don’t quit. I’m not a quiter. I’m a loser maybe, but I’ll quit when I decide to, thank you.

Germans unhappy with EU’s handling of vaccine scheme – Roughly half of Germans believe the EU has handled the coronavirus vaccine rollout badly, according to an opinion poll. It comes as separate research finds a majority want an end to the country’s lockdown…

The United Kingdom has given at least one jab to 31% of its population, while Germany has so far at least partially vaccinated 7.63% of its population (that actually means more like 3.5, of course), according to figures compiled by Our World In Data.

That is marginally above the EU average of 7.60 people for every 100.

Unpopular?

No need to wonder why. German and EU politicians went out of their way to make the AstraZenica vaccine unpopular.

Astra

You know, Brexit and all that? It had to be made unpopular because it came from post-Brexit Britain and demonstrated, once again, how incompetent EU bureaucrats are in matters like this. They have  done everything wrong they could possibly do wrong when it comes to COVID vaccines yet still gladly point a schoolmasterly finger at a country that is clearly getting the problem under control.

COVID: AstraZeneca vaccine remains unpopular in Germany – In Germany, everyone who wants a coronavirus vaccine should receive one by September. But this plan will only work if millions of people accept the vaccine produced by AstraZeneca.

Think about it: You are willing to endanger the lives of your own citizens in order to make your “ex” look bad.

 

German Nationalism Shows Its Ugly Face

By wanting to protect its citizens from incompetent, unelected European bureaucrats.

Germany

That’s not very nice. What about European solidarity or, whatever they call it these days? We should all die at the same rate. Equally. I know: We’ll call them rotten Nazis!

Merkel Ally Urges Germany to Circumvent EU on Covid Shots – A senior member of Angela Merkel’s conservative bloc took a swipe at the chancellor’s vaccine strategy, calling for Germany to purchase shots at the national level because the European Union is too slow.

At the current rate, Germany will need 2.8 years to inoculate 75% of the population with a two-dose vaccine.

Dig, Uschi! Dig!

It really is fun to watch her. I think she’s gone mad, by the way. But this is the world that Angie Merkel & Co. want.

Uschi

The incompetent Eurocrats are in a horrible hole. So why are they STILL digging?

For politicians across the world, the past 12 months have brought challenges few could have imagined. And inevitably, every government has made its share of mistakes. But for some people, determined to hold up a magnifying glass to Britain’s failings, there has always been a shining beacon of honesty and competence — the EU. Time and again, they insisted that France, Germany and their Continental neighbours put Britain to shame…

The EU’s vaccine shambles has been well chronicled, from its failure to sign a timely deal and secure supplies to its mendacious attempts to blame the British/Swedish pharmaceutical company AstraZeneca and its ham-fisted attempt to close the Irish border. So I don’t intend to rehearse all the gory details. What has shocked me, though, is that instead of apologising, the Brussels elite have doubled down on their mistakes and evasions. Having found themselves in a hole, they have been digging more furiously than ever…

Despite her pompous presidential title, Mrs von der Leyen is not a serious politician. Most German commentators see her as a serial failure, whose time as their defence minister was blighted by her risible inability to arrange proper aircraft procurement. She was parachuted into the Commission presidency as Angela Merkel’s creature, a pliant puppet who would do her mistress’s bidding. But if Mrs Merkel had known what was coming, she would surely have made a better choice.
