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.

Now That Orange Man Is Gone Alles Is Well

Right? Well, not really.

Biden

And it’s because of you, Germany. Not the Orange Man.

The German trade surpluses remain. And remain they will.

The promised German defense spending levels for NATO have still not been met – nor do the Germans have any intention of ever meeting them.

The Nord Stream 2 gas pipeline, Germany’s going it alone with Russia (going it alone – Alleingänge – is something Germans regularly swear up and down they will never ever do again), will still not be accepted by the United States – or from most of Europe, for that matter.

Dollar signs in German eyes make it overly eager to allow Iran to do anything it wants to continue it’s nuclear program (a country openly calling for the destruction of Israel).

Germany forced the European Union to complete an investment deal with China – Germany’s largest trading partner – without even bothering to consult the incoming American administration. Nor does it share everyone else’s concern about allowing Huawei to provide the German 5G network.

To name just a few.

How did someone once put it?

“The Germans are very, very bad.”

German Of The Day: Reisewarnung

That means travel warning.

Travel

In this case for The Banana Republic of America itself!

Germany issues travel warning for Washington after attack on Capitol – Germans have been told to avoid central Washington, DC, following Wednesday’s storming of the Capitol building. It’s one of several advisories the German Foreign Ministry carries about travel to the United States.

Reisewarnung für die USA wegen militanter Trump-Anhänger.

“They should have shown more humility”

DER SPIEGEL: Humility?

America

Sandel: Yes. Think of Hillary Clinton’s use of the word “deplorables.” She used it in the last election campaign in reference to Trump voters, blue-collar workers. It showed an arrogance toward the less educated. Obama spoke of people who “cling to guns or religion…”

Sandel: It is true that the Democrats have repeatedly made this promise with good intentions: to show people a way out of the inequality that has worsened as a result of globalization. They emphasize university education as the avenue for upward mobility. But this leaves out over half of the population.

“The Democratic Party opened the way for Trump.”

Germany Tired Of Being Admired

“China and Russia vying for second” pretty much sums this “global” poll up, people.

Germany

With runners-up like that who needs first place?

Germany by far most admired country, with US, China and Russia vying for second – global poll – Annual Gallup survey casts doubt on Mike Pompeo’s claim that the US is ‘perfectly positioned’ to lead the free world in rivalry with China

I’ve been with 1000’s of men
Again and again
They sing the same tune
They start with Byron and Shelley
And jump on your belly
And bust your ballon

Aye!
Tired, tired of playing the game
Ain’t it a freakin’ shame
I’m so…
Let’s face it everything below the waist is kaput!

German Students Not Use To Countries That Uphold Their Visa Laws

Looks like it’s Fridays for No-Future for you.

Students

Sie schaffen das!

German students in US urge Berlin to take stand against new visa rules – “We’re counting on your support,” students wrote in an open letter to Angela Merkel’s government. Under new pandemic rules, international students face expulsion from the US if their schools offer online-only classes.

The new visa regulations as part of “an increasingly xenophobic immigration policy.”

Gazprom Gerd For Painful Counter-Reactions

He didn’t say who these counter-reactions were going to be most painful too, however.

Gerd

Nord Stream 2, folks. It’s getting ugly. The ex-chancellor’s reaction is quite understandable, however. Considering who he works for.

German government officials, MPs and experts have criticised U.S. plans to tighten sanctions on the contentious natural gas pipeline project Nord Stream 2 (NS2) currently under construction in the Baltic Sea as an encroachment on EU sovereignty in a parliamentary hearing. Former German chancellor Gerhard Schröder, who has close ties to the Russian government and chairs Nord Stream 2’s board of directors, said there is no doubt that the U.S. attempt to “dictate the sovereign community of states such as the EU what to do” must be rejected. He said that diplomatic possibilities must be exploited, “but this will not work without counter sanctions”, without giving details. Schröder said natural gas would be needed as a bridging technology in Germany’s energy system for a very long time.

But the former chancellor’s comments were met with criticism. His presence as a “badly informed Russian gas lobbyist is a disgrace for the highest government office”, said Alexander Reitzenstein, senior policy advisor at think tank E3G.

“Collective Response?”

Most likely, if it’s directed against US-Amerika everybody jumps on board.

Germany

Germany Weighs Measures Against U.S. Over Nord Stream Threat – The 1,200-kilometer (745 mile) pipeline under the Baltic Sea, designed to pump Russian gas directly to Germany, has triggered deep division between EU member states. But the prospect of a direct U.S. intervention in the 27-member bloc’s energy interests should prompt a collective response, said the officials, who asked not to be identified.

“The government is called upon to develop and put forward proposals for a measured, clear reaction on behalf of Germany and the European Union.”

German Of The Day: Überraschend

That means surprisingly.

Hiring

And you can just hear the disappointment ringing in this article’s title: Arbeitslosigkeit in den USA im Mai überraschend gesunken. That means unemployment in the USA in May sunk surprisingly.

You’ll get over it, Germany. That we’ll get over it, I mean. Now let’s see what you can do about your rising unemployment figures.

Damit haben die Experten nicht gerechnet: Die Arbeitslosenquote in den USA ist trotz der anhaltenden Folgen der Viruskrise überraschend gesunken.

The End Of Amerika Again

And again and again and again.

In this episode we die of coronavirus. Stay tuned for the next one.

How Trump Is Fueling a Corona Disaster – Donald Trump’s disastrous crisis management has made the United States the new epicenter of the global coronavirus pandemic. The country is facing an unprecedented economic crash. Are we witnessing the implosion of a superpower?

“German schadenfreude knows no bounds, particularly when it comes to the United States. The country loves to feel superior to a superpower like America. The reasons are psychological. The criticism of America has always been a bit infantile. One is familiar with the theory from psychoanalysis, when people talk about transference, or when suppressed feelings or emotions are overcome by projecting them onto others. It may work for a while, improving one’s feeling of self-worth by devaluing an imagined adversary. But it always falls short. Which is why the ritual must be constantly carried out anew.”
– Jan Fleischhauer (a German journalist who used to work for Der Spiegel itself)
