The Swiss online SRF public television site here reports that German power engineering giant Siemens plans to eliminate some 6900 employees, half of them in Germany. Hit will be the conventional power plant and electric drive systems branch.
German energy sector in turmoil
The SRF writes that the power plant branch “is suffering due to the Energiewende“, Germany’s attempted transition to renewable energies. This branch alone will see 6100 job reductions. Turbine plants in Görlitz, Leipzig, Offenbach, Erfurt, Erlangen, Berlin and Mülheim (Ruhr) will be impacted. The announcement just before the start of the Christmas holiday season has angered trade unionists.
The Handelsblatt here reports that some of the impacted engineering workers are “in shock and in tears” over the news. Protests and strikes have been announced.
t an accurate, concise assessment of how Germany’s “Energiewende” (transition away from fossil and nuclear energies over to green energies) has been faring so far. It’s grade? I’d interpret it as an F for failure.
Quickly turning into a huge embarrassment
Once seen as “a paragon of green energy virtue“, the Energiewende is nothing like it was sold to be by green energy hucksters. In fact things have gotten so bad that we can expect activists to grow totally silent on Germany’s Energiewende as its failure becomes glaring and embarrassing.
The WSJ editorial boards reminds readers that Germany is not even going to come close to meeting it’s 2020 or 2030 targets, despite the hundreds of billions of euros committed to the project so far.
No greenhouse gas reductions in 9 years
– Merkel says German multicultural society has failed (BBC News):
Attempts to build a multicultural society in Germany have “utterly failed”, Chancellor Angela Merkel says.
She said the so-called “multikulti” concept – where people would “live side-by-side” happily – did not work, and immigrants needed to do more to integrate – including learning German.
The comments come amid rising anti-immigration feeling in Germany.
A recent survey suggested more than 30% of people believed the country was “overrun by foreigners”.
The study – by the Friedrich Ebert Foundation think-tank – also showed that roughly the same number thought that some 16 million of Germany’s immigrants or people with foreign origins had come to the country for its social benefits.
“She said the parties agreed on measures that will ensure that the total number of admissions won’t exceed 200,000 people a year.“
Taking family reunification into account the real number might be above 1,000,000 people per year and Germany is finished!
After German Chancellor Angela Merkel admitted late last year that she had “lost control” of Germany’s refugee crisis after adopting an “open door” policy that fueled an unprecedented spike in crime, her weakened ruling coalition announced Monday that it would seek to impose new restrictions on the number of refugees admitted to the country.
Germany famously admitted nearly one million refugees from Syria, Libya, Afghanistan and other war zones in 2015, a five-fold increase over the previous year.
Migrants repaid Germany for its openness by committing 142,500 crimes during the first six months of 2016, including several high-profile sexual assaults.
And now it seems Merkel has hit a wall and folded…
Merkel is a Freemason and an elite puppet.
In other words, just like in the recent Franch elections, the German establishment was just trounced:
- Worst result for Merkel’s CDU/CSU since 1949
- Worst result for SPD Since 1945
Even more troubling for the German establishment is that the far-right AfD was the second strongest party in former Eastern Germany:

BERLIN (AP) — German Chancellor Angela Merkel says it’s unacceptable for Hungary to ignore a ruling by the European Union’s top court that it must accept refugees under an EU-wide plan. But she’s not specifying any consequences.
Hungary’s prime minister has said that while he “took note” of the European Court of Justice’s ruling last week, he’d continue to oppose the plans.
Merkel told Tuesday’s edition of the daily Berliner Zeitung: “That one government says it isn’t interested in a verdict by the European Court of Justice cannot be accepted.”

On Sunday, during a televised debate for the upcoming German Federal elections, current Prime Minister Angela Merkel said:
“The fact is clear that Turkey should not become a member of the EU. I’ll speak to my (EU) colleagues to see if we can reach a joint position on this so that we can end these accession talks.“
This shift in Merkel’s position has been met with various responses. In the EU, Finland and Lithuania have stressed that they want to continue the negotiations, despite Erdogan’s less sub-stellar track record. Lithuanian Social Democrat MP Linas Antanas Linkevičius said that:
Germany is doomed and has no choice…
Personally, I would say that TPTB want Martin Schulz to be the next Chancellor of Germany, because Merkel has fullfilled her duty in serving TPTB to 100% and it is now time to introduce a new puppet into the game to further advance the agenda of TPTB.
Next up: (Planned) financial collapse, (planned) hyperinflation and (planned) civil war (all over Europe and in the U.S.).
H/t reader squodgy:
“Europe will be well & truly fucked….for good.
That is exactly what Merkel’s masters desire.
The writing is clear & on all walls.”
