German Chancellor Angela Merkel (left) rejects criticism of her decision to allow more than a million mostly Muslim migrants to enter Germany last year. “We can manage our historic task… we can do it. … Anxiety and fear cannot guide our political decisions,” she said at a July 28 press conference, adding, “I cannot promise you that we will never have to take in another mass wave of refugees.”
As ArmstrongEconomics’ Martin Armstrong rages, Merkel refuses to admit that she is wrong and will not reverse her refugee policy despite all the problems, attacks, rapes, and terror.
This is the precise reason why career politicians are no longer acceptable. They will never defend the people nor will they ever admit a mistake.

We will see more and nations raise borders and if Germany wishes to take in millions, they will have to keep them all for themselves.

In the week following the attempted coup in Turkey, which killed about 290 people, the municipality announced it intended to set up a cemetery specifically for those involved — people that officials have branded as traitors undeserving of a proper burial. About 24 coup plotters are believed to have been killed that night.
Authorities would “reserve a spot and call it a traitors’ cemetery. Passers-by will curse them,” Istanbul Mayor Kadir Topbas said in remarks carried by the Dogan News Agency. “May every passer-by curse them and let them not rest in their tombs.” Continue reading »
