German Region Thuringia Election Result Heralds The Collapse Of Germany

We have reported the growing likelyhood of an economic and social collapse in Germany both here and in our Daily Stirrer pages, but nothing has pointed towards that inevitable conclusion to Merkel’s mess and the accompanying disintegration of the European Union more strongly than the results of last weekends regional electioons for the state government of  Thuringia, a province in the north east of the country.

The near collapse of the two centrist parties, Angela Merkel’s CDU and the Social Democrats (SPD), which for decades dominated German politics, looks like a omen of what lies ahead in German politics and EU politics.

#

A majority in Thuringia, ruled by the CDU since the early 1990’s until 2014 when Die Linke took over with the Social Democrats and the Greens, just voted against the centrist, Merkelist, grand coalition of standing for nothing but globalism and tighter EU integration.

Die Linke (a coalition of hard left Marxists and other left of centre extremists,) and Alternative for Germany (AfD) secured more than 54% of the total vote. Die Linke, the remnant of the East German Communist Party, and AfD, the new face of Eurosceptic nationalism, anti-immigration and fiscally responsible Germans, took first and second place ahead of Merkel’s CDU.

Whereas in 2014, Die Linke formed a government with the SPD and the Greens, today they cannot, the grouping falls 4 seats short of a majority, and the Greens barely beat the 5% threshold for representation.  Had they not the coalition calculus would be unsolvable.

Merkel and the CDU, though they beat old rivals the SDP by a big margin will exclude themselves from the state government as the Europhile leadership categorically refuse to make a deal with AfD in any capacity, the sticking point being Merkel’s blinkered committent to her open doors immigration policy which has been the cause of so many of the country’;s social and economic problems.  It looks as if Turingia will be without an effective government for some time. The situation is just as bad in Brandenburg which voted in September and where the establishment has effectively blocked a coalition that contains the anti – EU Alternatif fur Deutschland.

This is becoming a trend in the EU where Spain, Belgium, Portugal and Italy are without effective governments because of undemocratic meddling in election results by Brussels.

In both German states, complex coalitions of incompatible parties will be needed the formation of any government and with at least four parties involved, to cobble together a majority on any controversial issue will be almost impossible because the only thing they agree on  is their refusal to collaborate with with AfD.  Lower Saxony will likely retain its current coalition between Merkel’s CDU, the SPD and the Greens after their election last month, although the demands of the Greens as their price for joining such a coalition, environmentalist reforms that will be ruinous for the local economy, are likely to be unacceptable to CDU and SDP representatives. .

These, and other recent regional election results in Germany all highlight the direction the country’s voters are moving, away from Brussels and Euro – Federalism and towards nationalism and a reclamation of national sovereignty. Voters are also repulsed by the mainstream party’s making impossible promises to everyone and reneging on them in order to advance “the European project,” by transforming the 27 member states into a federal republic, and against the Islamification of German society which is Merkel’s legacy.  As Alexander Mercouris of The Duran pointed out the other day, Merkel’s modus operandi is to hold the line on the status quo regardless of the social mayhem her policies are creating around her.

That has created a a situation where an illusion of stability and control is projected on the surface on the surface while is teetering on collapse with every new social development or item of economic news.

For years now, since the immigration crisis broke, the Hausfrau Volksfuhrer has been trying to keep the European project moving towards “ever closer integration” while ignoring domestic problems or pretending all bad news is just a “far right conspiracy theory.”  But in trying to keep things as they are in the world outside Germany, she’s let allowed Germany’s internal problems to run out of control.

Germany’s state elections this autumn in Germany have been not only been a a disaster for Merkel, they have also encouraged an upsurge in opposition to the EU central bureaucracy throughout Europe. Member states know that without German money propping up the EU, the organisation cannot survive. And with the UK, the second largest net contributor to EU funds after Germany about to leave, the burden has become unsupportable for the faltering German economy. And that is making thevpolitical situation even more unstable.

Look back to the aftermath of the 2017 national election and how hard it was for Merkel to put a ruling coalition together, leaving the EU’s most economically powerful member state without an effective government for over six months.  Some commentators predicted the end of Merkelism but somehow Merkel survived at the head of a fragile and unconvincing coalition The problems she’s facing now were just as acute then. but she chose to paper them over with yet another disastrous coalition with the Social Democrats and CSU.

What’s clear is that political opinions about the future of Germany are hardening away from the consensus politics Merkel’s Party and the SDP have been selling in fact the collapse of the SDP, once the default party of government is even more astounding than the decline of Merkel’s CDU.

The event most likely to trigger the collapse and fragmentation of Germany will be the failure of Deutschebank, the financial giant that, saddled with mountains of debt run up by the EU’s basket case economies, has been effectively insolvent for some time. There’s nothing quite as potent in destroying confidence than the failure of a major financial institutions, and in this case, when (not if,) the bank fails, the figer of blame will be pointed at the globalist government in Berlin.

Migrant who made 11-year-old pregnant twice sentenced to only three years

An adult migrant has been sentenced by a Swedish court to a mere three years prison time for repeatedly raping an 11-year-old girl and twice making her pregnant. In addition to the three-year prison sentence, the Swedish court also ruled that the migrant would be deported but would be able to return to Sweden after 10 years.

The man, whose ethnic origin, birth nation and religious background have not been releassed by the authorities, is reportedly in his twenties, and embarked on an abusive sexual relationship with the child im the summer of 2018, repeatedly raping her throughout the summer months after convincing her it was normal for girls of her age to have sex with adults, according to Nyheter Idag.

It wasn’t July of 2019, that the migrant was finally arrested by police although his illegal relationship with the girl had been reported almost a year earlier. In September 2019 Swedish prosecutors finally charged the man with four counts of rape. The court found him guilty of three.

During the time she was being raped, the child victim fell pregnant twice. Swedish media has not been able to determine whether any of the pregnancies were taken to term. However, SVT did report that medical evidence that the rapist was the father on both occasions.

Despite the rapist denying having known the girl’s age, the Blekinge District Court found the migrant guilty and sentenced him to three years in prison. Thank’s to the polititocally correct Swedish government’s policy of hhandling migrant crime with kid gloves only two years will be served. The court also ordered the migrant rapist to pay damages of 22,000 euros and expelled him from Sweden for ten years. And in view of Sweden’s open doors immigration npolicy what’s the betting he’ll be back and raping again within six months

Disastrous Manufacturing Figure Herald German Economic Recession

Germany has long been the prop that held up the economically feeble EU, in which more than helf the 27 members that will remain in the bloc after Britain leaves are economic basket cases (some due only to the strictures of Eurozone membership, others because of the traditional weakness of their national economies,) so with Germany slipping towards the recession we and other well informed blogs and news site have predicted since Merkel’s ‘open doors’ immigration policy allowed a couple of million iliterate, uneducated, unskilled and unemployable immigrants to flood into the country, incresing the bill for welfare services exponentially, problems for Germany’s high – tech manufacturing led economy which needs highly skilled, well educated and adaptable workers and professionals was inevitable.

When we wrote about the early signs of recession in the German economy we were scoffed at, called far – right nut jobs and conspiracy theorists, and inevitably, racists because anyone but a racist would know that a couple of millon unemployable immigrants living on benefits can only boost a high – tech economy.

Today, for all the auusurances by Europhile politicians and bureaucrats that everything in the European Union is on the up and up, Germany is on red alert for recession following the biggest collapse in activity for its mighty industrial sector since the financial crisis. Technically Germany already is in recession, they’re just not willing to admit it.

The eurozone’s bigge,t and most powerful economy relies on exports but its car industry has been punished by a slowing global economy,   government policies promoting electric vehichles which nobody want to buy because they are hideously expensive and useless, and the fallout of the trade war between the US and China.

Financial information service IHS Markit’s latest snapshot of Germany’s manufacturing growth – where a score under 50 signals contraction – dipped to 41.4, its worst level since 2009, as demand from non – EU trading partners slumped. There were also worrying signs that the manufacturing slump is spreading to the service sector after firms in that sector experience their first fall in new business since 2014.

Confidence among German businesses is the weakest since 2012, private sector job creation is stalling after six years of growth and companies are eating into backlogs as new orders begin to dry up, the figures showed.

Germany’s economy shrank an overall 0.1pc between April and June. Monday’s dire survey data comes after recent official figures showed a sharp 0.6pc drop in industrial production in July.

Phil Smith, principal economist at IHS Markit, said Germany’s manufacturing data was “simply awful”, with combined readings for services and manufacturers “firmly in contraction territory” and the weakest for almost seven years.

Italy PM Giuseppe Conte resigns, launches blistering attack on deputy Matteo Salvini

In another huge blow to the efforts of the Brussels bureaucracy to create an illusion of solidarity among remaining EU member states in the run up to Brexit, Italy’s Prime Minister Guiseppe Conte has resigned, citing the behaviour of his Deputy Matteo Salvini the man who was prevented from assuming the leadership of Italy after his party won the most recent election, by Brussels’ undemocratic refusal to accept a Eurosceptic politician as leader of any member state.

Since then the Brussels elite has constantly interfered in Italy’s political and economic life, in a bid to prevent Salvini, who as leader of League, the largest party in the Italian legislature from carrying out their populist agenda. Salvini, the de facto political leader of Italy as Conte had no party backing him and no electoral mandate has been seeking confrontation with the EU principally over immigration and economic policies.

This development is certain to end the League / Five Star governimg coalition, resulting in a general election in which the hugely popular League is likely to win an overall majority. If that is the outcome Brussels will be powerless to prevent Salvini becoming Prime Minister and his party assuming overall control. And that would certainly result in Italy Leaving the European Single Currency system (the Euro,) as a step towards quitting the EU entirely. READ MORE at Vanguard News

Volvo To Move HQ From Sweden? It’s Not Because Of Brexit

 Volvo CEO Hakan Samuelsson sent shockwaves through his country and the EU today when he said the Swedish car company  company may have to consider moving its headquarters elsewhere. Volvo, he said, struggles to attract foreign specialists due to the lack of public security caused by the government’s failure to address the country’s soaring crime rate which is linked to mass immigration and the government’s refusal to deal with so called ‘no – go areas’ for police and energency services in Swedish towns and cities.
In Gothenburg, where the Volvo headquarters is located there have been gun battles in the streets between criminal gangs from rival immigrant communities vyinf for control of the lugrative drugs, sex and contraband trades. Human trafficking has also been a problem in Sweden that has not been dealt with because politically correct politicians, knowing the perpetrators were non – European, were reluctant to act for fear of ‘raising inter-racial tensions.

Speaking to the daily Svenska Dagbladet, Samuelsson lamented the fact that the auto manufacturer has been gradually losing its appeal to foreign tech experts and engineers, as well as top managers. The problem, according to him, partly lies in the fact that the specialists are reluctant to move to Sweden’s second largest city because of the high rate of violent crime.

“We are building cars, we cannot solve this problem,” Samuelsson told SvD. “Yet, one can still point out that this problem does exist.” Among the other issues he mentioned were the lack of affordable housing and schools. Part of th far – left government’s crazy immigration policy has been to give priority to immigrants, refugees and asylum seekers when allocating social housing, which has predictably resulted in a housing shortage.

The Volvo CEO mentioned that the company might seriously consider moving its headquarters out of Sweden if the situation does not change. He hastened to say that Volvo is not currently planning such a move, but he would not completely rule it out in the future.

Samuelsson’s words provoked an angry reaction from Gothenburg police chief Erik Nord, who dismissed them as “unfair.”

The general situation in the city is not that bad, he said, explaining that something that is seen as “normal” elsewhere somehow gets “undeservedly great attention” in Sweden.

However it is Police Chief Nord who is being unfair, like all government employees he is trying to pretend that the problems Samulesson highlighted do not exist. That they receive more media attention in Sweden than similar problems elsewhere is probably because until Sweden embarked upon its ‘open doors’ immigration policy, happily admitting criminals, fugitives, political agitators, terrorists and member of gangs involved in human trafficking, drug and gun running and modern slavery, it was probable one of the most orderly, law – abiding and safe nations in which to live.

Italy Arrests Captain Of Migrant NGO Ship After Illegal Docking

Italian leader Matteo Salvini continued to se the standard for leadersd of Eurosceptic EU member states when he ordered the arrest of the captain, crew members and passengers of a ship that crashed the Italian border control agency blockade to land its cargo of illegal immigrants on the Iitalian island of Lampeduesa. The captain of the migrant transport ship Sea Watch 3 had docked at Europe’s most southern port on the Italian island was arrested on Saturday following a protracted standoff, according to the New York Times.

Sea Watch 3 captain Carola Rackete

The 40 migrants onboard disembarked after 16 days on the Sea Watch 3, operated by German NGO Sea-Watch and operating under the Dutch flag and were taken to a detention centre for illegal entrants to Italy.

Captain Carola Rackete, 31, docked just before 2 a.m. after ramming an Italian government border-control vessel which was trying to stop them entering the port. Rackete was arrested on charges of “resisting a war ship,” which carries a penalty of up to 10 years in prison.

A spokeswoman for the Sea Watch charity Giorgia Linardi said that the situation was still “unfolding,” and that the charges had yet to be formalized. She added that the migrants had been taken to a migration center on the island. The so – called charity is a politically motivated organisation whic specialises in helping illegal immigrants from third world nations entrer the European Union.

The Sea Watch, which rescued 53 people off the coast of Libya on June 12, had navigated toward Italy after rejecting an offer to dock in Tripoli, Libya, which humanitarian groups do not deem safe. Thirteen migrants had been allowed to disembark in Italy for medical reasons after the rescue. –New York Times

Italy’s Interior Minister, Matteo Salvini, closed the country’s ports to rescue ships last year and has demanded that other European nations (in this case The Netherlands, where the ship is registered, take in the undocumented migrants. On Friday, five countries offered to take them. Salvini, who has referred to the GNO vessel as a “pirate ship,” told RAI state radio that he had “ordered the arrest of an outlaw” who had recklessly endangered the lives of Italian border patrol officers. He also ordered authorities to sequester the ship “which goes around the Mediterranean breaking laws.”

On Saturday morning, Salvini posted a video of the ship's arrival at Lampedusa on Twitter, writing "Outlaw commander arrested. Pirate ship confiscated. Maxi-fine to a foreign NGO. Migrants distributed to other European countries. MISSION ACCOMPLISHED.”

No wonder the man is so hugely popular with Italian voters.

Spain’s Election Problem: Muslim Population Grew By 20% in 4 years As Spanish Nationals Are Marginalised

Catalonia has the fastest growing Muslim population in Spain – and more Islamic centres than any other region in the country. In spite of a strong separatist movement, the left has total hegemony in regional politics and the patriotic forces are being marginalised by the socialists, their elected politicians are excluded from key positions and known supporters are being fired from jobs and having trouble getting hired elsewhere, Defend Europa reports.

From 2011 to 2015, the number of Muslims in Catalonia has grown by 19.5%. That translates to 83,000 more people than 4 years ago. Not only that, the risk of terrorist attack has tripled in just this year (under the socialist government, almost 30,000 more Muslims, mostly uneducated, illiterate single males, have arrived). From 2011 to this year, the number of immigrants has doubled. They constitute more than one million people in a population of only 7 million.

This “wonderful” multiculturalism, the creation of the EU and being promoted by the socialist government in Madrid exploded in the Barcelona terrorist attacks of 2017. After seeing this, what was the reaction of the Catalan politicians? Well no, with the Catalan separatists hamstrung as the duopoly parties close ranks against them, its graft and corruption as usual in Spanish politics.

Campaigning for Spain’s general election, brought about when the minority socialist government, which gained power in a bloodless coup only last year, lost a confidence vote in the national Assembly. Campaingning for this election, to be held on April 28, begins on Friday this week and accusations of political espionage described as the country’s ‘Watergate’, external meddling and breaches of electoral law are flying in all directions.

Last month Spain’s judiciary launched a probe into an alleged conspiracy by secret police and the former conservative government led by Mariano Rajoy to smear the reputation of the left-wing Podemos party founded in 2014.

On April 1 Spain’s Socialist administration claimed to have deactivated the so-called “patriotic brigade” of senior police officers. “The sewers no longer exist,” said Interior Minister Fernando Grande-Marlaska.
But Podemos’s leader Pablo Iglesias has since claimed the dirty tricks campaign against his party did not end when the more ideologically-aligned Socialist Prime Minister Pedro Sánchez came to power last June.

Last weekend Mr Sánchez’s deputy press officer, Alberto Pozas, was summoned by a judge in connection with the theft of data from a mobile phone belonging to Mr Iglesias’s former aide. The phone was stolen in November 2015, weeks before the first general election in which Podemos took part, when Mr Pozas was editor of a now-defunct sensationalist news weekly called Interviú.

Investigators found data from the mobile phone among the files of former police officer José Manuel Villarejo, jailed since 2017 while a court probes his role as alleged leading member of the “patriotic brigade”.

Among a series of accusations against Mr Villarejo, the former police commissioner is believed to have staged a phony police probe into alleged financing for Podemos from the Iranian and Venezuelan governments.

And while all this is distracting voters, the invasion of Spain by illegal immigrants from Africa goes on, as in so many other nations in Europe the ruling elite are oblivious to the concerns of their countrymen and women who are not so privileged, and are happy to replace the population with uneducated, unaware cheap labour.

And so the smears and corruption, bribery, entrapment and general malfeasance will go on until election day and a vote, which in common with the last three general elections in Spain is likely to throw up an inconclusive result. Did you really think the UK is the only European nation where democracy is in crisis?
