Anti-migrant AfD makes Berlin breakthrough, as Merkel’s CDU slumps:

Germany’s anti-Islamization and Eurosceptic AfD entered its tenth state assembly, as voters deserted the mainstream parties in the nation’s capital. But a left-leaning coalition is likely to take control of the city.

With all votes counted, Alternative for Germany (AfD), founded only three years ago, captured 14.1 percent of the vote, putting it in fifth place, but within range of the four leading parties.

“It’s a huge success. We are a party coming from nothing, so the only party that is gaining two digits is us. Now, we are moving from the regional elections here this year, and looking to the national polls in 2017,” Beatrix von Storch, an AfD MEP, told RT amid celebrations.

Now that plan will probably be well received by the German people.

In other news:

Germany to spend €600m housing Migrants in Berlin Hotels:

The German government is set to spend €600 million euros housing migrants in upmarket Berlin hotels at a cost of €18,000 per “refugee,” while the city’s 10,000 homeless population will remain on the streets.

Germany will spend £450 MILLION on a ‘multi-year’ contract housing up to 10,000 refugees at Holiday Inn hotels


Berlin authorities to pay €600mn to house refugees in 22 city hotels – report:

The Berlin senate is negotiating a plan with property owners to rent 22 hotels in and around the city to house refugees, German newspaper Frankfurter Allgemeine reports, with a reference to a source in the senate.
The plan is part of a longer-term leasing of 10,000 hotel places for migrants, each costing €50 (US$54.60) a night for the hotel accommodation or €18,000 per year for an “all inclusive” program of care and integration.

Grand City Hotels, or GCH, a London-based firm which owns the buildings in question, is to provide the Berlin Senate with 22 hotels, including Holiday Inn and Wyndham properties. It is not immediately clear how many refugees it is planned will be accommodated there Continue reading »

Regionalstudie:  Berlin und Ruhrpott werden zu Armutshochburgen (Der Spiegel, Dec 20, 2012):

Obdachloser in Essen: Im Ruhrgebiet nimmt die Armutsgefährdung stark zu

Obdachloser in Essen: Im Ruhrgebiet nimmt die Armutsgefährdung stark zu

In Deutschlands Regionen steigt die Armut zum Teil dramatisch – das zeigt eine neue Studie des Paritätischen Wohlfahrtsverbands. Längst sind nicht mehr nur die ostdeutschen Bundesländer betroffen. Das Ruhrgebiet gehört zusammen mit Berlin zu den “Problemregionen Nummer eins”.

Hamburg – Wenn Deutschland in diesen Tagen an etwas nicht arm ist, so sind es Armutsberichte. Verschiedenste Institute und Verbände veröffentlichen kurz vor Jahresende Analysen zur Armutsgefährdung der Deutschen, die sich zum Teil deutlich widersprechen. Oft steht dabei die Situation der Gesamtbevölkerung im Fokus.

Der Paritätische Wohlfahrtsverband untersucht hingegen seit Jahren die regionale Entwicklung – und die hält er für besonders besorgniserregend. Der Blick in die Regionen lasse die zum Teil “dramatischen Verwerfungen in unserem Land deutlich werden”, erklärte Ulrich Schneider, Hauptgeschäftsführer des Verbands zur Vorstellung der Studie am Donnerstag.

Dem Bericht zufolge ist mittlerweile etwa jeder siebte Bundesbürger von Armut bedroht. Erstmals habe die Armutsgefährdungsquote im vergangenen Jahr die 15-Prozent-Marke übersprungen, ein “absolutes Rekordhoch”. Mit 12,4 Millionen Menschen sei eine halbe Million mehr betroffen als noch im Vorjahr. Als armutsgefährdet gelten Personen in Haushalten, deren Einkommen weniger als 60 Prozent des durchschnittlichen bedarfsgewichteten Einkommens (Median) in Deutschland beträgt.

Nachdem ich gestern von einem Deutsch-Amerikaner noch einen Hinweis in dieser traurigen Angelegenheit erhalten hatte, den man wegen der allgemeinen Lebenserfahrung und den juristischen Denkgesetzen nicht wegargumentieren kann, hatte ich mich heute Nacht entschieden, Strafanzeige beim Bundeskriminalamt wegen eines mutmaßlich geplanten Terroranschlags am 26.06.2011 in Berlin einzureichen.

Jesuit Priest Admits Molesting Youth

Systematic Sexual Abuse at Berlin Catholic School
Molest cases at Berlin’s Canisius College Jesuit high school, where “systematic” sexual abuse took place for years.

A priest last week admitted in a statement to SPIEGEL he had abused a number of pupils at an elite Berlin high school run by Jesuit priests. In recent days, around 20 former students have come forward alleging they were sexually abused by priests at the school. The director of Canisius College has described the years-long abuse as “systematic.”

Berlin’s Canisius College, a university-prep high school run by Jesuit priests, is one of the most elite schools in the German capital. Former students from the respected private school have reached the upper echelons of business, politics and society. For the past week, however, Canisius College has been at the center of a major sexual abuse scandall.

Last week, around 20 former students claimed they had been sexually abused by two teachers at the school, Wolfgang S. and Peter R. The abuse is believed to have been committed during the 1970s and 1980s.

‘Nothing To Apologize For’

After being contacted by SPIEGEL, one of the former teachers admitted he had abused some of his students. Wolfgang S., a former sports teacher and Jesuit priest, issued a statement to his victims stating it was “a sad fact that I abused children and young men under pseudo-educational pretexts.” The churchman, who today lives in South America, said that he had informed regional Catholic authorities in Germany in 1991 of his “criminal past.” He claims the Jesuit priests had known for 19 years about the multiple incidents of abuse.

Stefan Dartmann, the Catholic Provincial Superior for Germany, confirmed to SPIEGEL that the order has knowledge of the crimes that had been committed by Wolfgang S. at the time. Dartmann said a lawyer had been hired to investigate the files “to determine what, exactly, the Jesuits knew at the time and what consequences they drew.” Wolfgang S. left the order in 1992. Previously, he is also believed to have abused pupils at other schools, but he refused to comment on those allegations.

In addition to his time at the Berlin school, he worked at the Sankt-Ansgar School in Hamburg and at the Sankt-Blasien school in the southern Black Forest region from 1982 to 1984.

‘Intimate, Fatherly Behavior’

The then-director of the school, Father Hans Joachim Martin, said that S.’s “intimate, fatherly behavior” towards some schoolchildren had attracted his attention. S. was later forced to leave the high school.

S. also claimed he had told the Vatican about his misconduct. In his statement, he says that he had provided testimony to the Vatican with “unvarnished honesty.” And in South America, he had “again and again come into close contact with the torturers and victims” of the Pinochet dictatorship. “I was confronted with my mirror image as a tormenter of children,” he said.

Several victims expressed their outrage over the tone of his statement. In the document, dated Jan. 20, S. addressed “all the people who I abused as children and in their youth.” He added, “I’m sorry for what I did to you. And if you are capable, I ask you to forgive me.” But he also told SPIEGEL: “I have come clean about my past to God and the world.”

The second man alleged to have abused children at the school is a 69-year-old former religion teacher from Berlin, Peter R., who has disputed all allegations. SPIEGEL could not reach R. for comment by press time on Friday or on subsequent attempts on Monday. After his time at the school in Berlin, R. apparently worked as a pastor with young people in the state of Lower Saxony. He was reportedly the victim of a knife attack by a former Canisius College student several years ago.

Victim: Priest Ordered Me to Masturbate in Front of Him

After SPIEGEL hit the newsstands on Monday, additional details emerged in the alleged abuses.

One former victim who has accused Peter R. told SPIEGEL that he had had “several extensive talks” in 1981 with the school’s rector at the time, in which he spoke exhaustively about his sexual abuse. He said the abuse had taken place in a basement on the school grounds. He said the priest had repeatedly ordered him to masturbate in front of him. “Anyone who wanted to get any further in school,” the witness said, was forced to go through similar degradation.

Karl Heinz Fischer, the school’s rector from April 1981 to June 1989, confirmed to SPIEGEL that a student had reported Peter R.’s abuse to him during the first half of 1981. Fischer said he had immediately notified his superior, priest Rolf Dieter Pfahl, who was the Provincial Superior for the Jesuit Province of Northern Germany, of the allegations. Pfahl then called for Peter R. to be transferred. After the summer holidays in 1981, Fischer told SPIEGEL, Peter R. was no longer deployed in the classroom. Continue reading »

‘A World that Stands as One’ = ‘A One World Order’ = ‘The New World Order’

Sen. Barack Obama’s vote for a federal surveillance law that he had previously opposed has sparked a backlash from his online advocates, who had energized his campaign for the Democratic presidential nomination.
Source: CNN

The elite knows that in the coming election people will probably favor the Democratic candidate for a ‘change’ and thats why Barack Obama, like Bill Clinton before, stands for change. This is just manipulation.

And since John McCain is obviously no option, especially not for change, people who want to see a change will vote for Barack Obama.

Yet all these candidates are puppets set up by the elite.

All these candidates are after your emotional reaction to favor one candidate and reject the others, because if you are getting emotional about them, than you stop to think and then they have you.

If people would for a moment not look at the messenger but at the message, then a different picture would emerge.

Ron Paul does not have to say that he stands for change, because his actions speak louder than words.
