Lockdown, Lockdown Light, Lockdown 2, Mega-Lockdown…

Angela Merkel is preparing her subjects for the next phase of effective government measures against COVID-19: The Mega-Lockdown.

Lockdown

Still remember, my fellow Americans? It has been a few weeks after all. As mainstream media repeatedly preached to us about Germany having the Corona pandemic under control?

It sure is reassuring to know that people like Angie & Co. are from the government and they’re here to help.

Merkel wants ‘very fast action‘ against virus after record deaths.

While Germany’s total deaths per capita since the start of the pandemic remain far lower than in the United States, its daily per capita mortality since mid-December has often exceeded the U.S. rate.

“The virus can only be stopped with additional efforts.”

German Of The Day: Problematisch

That means problematic.

Trump

Germany’s Merkel: Trump’s Twitter eviction ‘problematic’ – Chancellor Angela Merkel’s spokesman says the German leader considers the U_S_ President Donald Trump’s eviction from Twitter by the company “problematic.”

“This fundamental right can be intervened in, but according to the law and within the framework defined by legislators — not according to a decision by the management of social media platforms. Seen from this angle, the chancellor considers it problematic that the accounts of the U.S. president have now been permanently blocked.”

 

How To Identify Hackers

They always wear dark leather gloves while hacking.

Gloves

And they also knock out the wrong news organizations. Hasn’t anybody ever told them about CNN, the New York Times, the Washington Post and all the rest?

Germany: ‘Colossal’ cyberattack knocks out Funke news group – Hackers knocked out one of Germany’s biggest news organizations over the Christmas holiday. Such criminal attacks, which often come with ransom demands, have become a lucrative business model.

As Long As The Other Third Goes First

More accurate polling results just in!

Vaccine

Coronavirus: Two-thirds of Germans willing to receive COVID vaccine – A poll has shown a large majority of people in Germany want to receive the vaccine which is due for rollout on December 27. Nevertheless, more than half of the survey’s participants were concerned about side effects.

Yeah, right. Nice try, though. Try less than one in five willing to receive the vaccination and more than 80 percent concerned about side effects instead.

More than half of the respondents — 57% — said they were concerned about the potential side effects of being inoculated.

The Polls Have Never Been Wrong Before

So don’t hesitate to believe these results.

Merkel

And if you’re interested, I’ve got some wonderful Florida swampland I can get you for a real steal. But seriously folks, the wording below is very important. “Germany’s leadership has never been higher in many countries…” The country of Germany was clearly not among those polled.

Merkel Set to Leave Office With Germany on Top of the World – As German Chancellor Angela Merkel prepares to leave office after nearly two decades in power, approval of Germany’s leadership has never been higher in many countries.

Across the 29 countries and areas that Gallup has surveyed so far in 2020, a median 62% approves of Germany’s leadership, up slightly from a median of 59% for this same group in 2019. Approval ratings are at, or top, previous record highs in 18 of the 29 countries.

 

“Fascist” Just Doesn’t Work Anymore

I know. Why don’t we give “QAnon” a try?

QAnon

It is, after all, “the most dangerous cult of our times.”

Traditionally weak in the argument department, those of the leftist fringe normally call those who don’t agree with them “racists,” “Nazis,” “bigots” or “Fascists,” to name a few, but now their marketing department has discovered that these insults just don’t have the customer appeal they once enjoyed. This is they have now introduced a new product: “QAnon.” Guaranteed to to bludgeon thought criminals into line every time. At least until the next product comes along.

QAnon’s Inexorable Spread Beyond the U.S. – The bizarre, pro-Trump cult known as QAnon has been gaining followers in the United States for months. Now, the conspiracy theory has begun spreading to Germany. It’s followers believe that the coronavirus is a weapon of the elite in their quest to enslave the world.

35,000 To 38,000 Right-Wing Extremists In One Place?

Or even more? Wow, that’s a lot. That’s even, I dunno, hard to believe.

Berlin

Politicians outraged about right-wing extremist protestors.” Well, the first part is true. But what they’re really outraged about is how the German sheeple aren’t being sheeple enough. This is inconveniencing them. State and leftist-controlled media outlets will take care of that, however. If you don’t read what we have to say about it (follow the Party line), it didn’t happen.

Tens of thousands of protesters occupied the center of the German capital for the second time in a month on Saturday, denouncing pandemic restrictions in defiance of governments that are battling a resurgence of infections.

Berlin authorities said some 35,000 to 38,000 demonstrators from Germany and elsewhere in Europe gathered throughout the day. In the early afternoon police broke up a march through Berlin’s Mitte district after tens of thousands of protesters disregarded safety measures.

It Would Almost Be Cute

If it wasn’t so pitiful.

Police

As reported earlier, although they detest us (just like everybody else), Germans also blindly copy anything and everything braindead Americans do. Here’s a prime example. Their profile neurosis has got so out of hand that they are now trying to manufacture some kind of German George Floyd event. In Germany. With German cops. In the year 2020. Unbelievable.

Germany: Outrage grows over footage of police violence – 2 videos recorded in a month, showing police officers kneeling on suspects’ necks, likened to George Floyd.

Erschrocken und empört.

Numbers, Numbers Everywhere

And not a drop to drink. I mean think. Absolute numbers can be absolutely worthless. But who’s counting?

Covid-19

Read an interesting observation yesterday while going through an article by journalist Jürgen Kunze at the Swiss nzz.

Is the USA going to get the pandemic under control? Looking at absolute numbers can be spectacular but being that it was the expected number of deaths that got politicians to act we must concentrate on that: Per 100,000 inhabitants, the death rate list is led by Belgium with 86, followed by Great Britain with 70, then Peru 67, Spain 61, Italy 58, Sweden 56, Chile 54, USA 50, Brazil 48, France 46. Germany lands at place 36 with 11. Consequently, the USA is in the upper middle range. Shouldn’t one be asking why Belgium can’t get the pandemic under control!

Bekommen die USA die Seuche nicht in den Griff? Der Blick auf absolute Zahlen kann spektakulär sein, aber da ja die erwarteten Sterbefälle die Politik zum Handeln zwang, müssen wir auch dabei bleiben: Pro 100000 Einwohner führt die Todesratenliste (alles gerundet) Belgien mit 86 Toten an, gefolgt von Großbritannien mit 70, dann Peru 67, Spanien 61, Italien 58, Schweden 56, Chile 54, USA 50, Brasilien 48, Frankreich 46 und an 36. Stelle Deutschland mit 11 Verstorbenen. Somit befinden sich die USA noch im oberen Mittelfeld. Man müsste eigentlich fragen, warum Belgien die Seuche nicht richtig in den Griff bekommen hat!
