At the beginning of the video the officer tells that man, likely a Turk, to probably (inaudible) stop smoking, but he apparently wasn’t listening.
Then he tells him not so kindly – again – to stop smoking.
Then the man laughs the police officers in the face.
THEN this happens.

A large group of migrants fought with locals in the German town of Peine, Lower Saxony, throwing stones, damaging cars, and shouting “Allahu Akbar”.
The clash began at around 9 p.m. Wednesday when a group of 10 migrants, some Syrian and some Palestinian, got into a fight. Shortly after the violence began, the police arrived on the scene and most of the perpetrators fled leaving one individual with a head injury who was taken to a nearby hospital.
At around 11 p.m., however, the violence erupted in the area once more when the migrants returned and began to smash the cars of local residents, many of whom are of a foreign background themselves. Around 40 to 50 locals left their houses to confront the mob, who threw rocks at the residents, as cries of “Allahu Akbar” were heard, Hannoversche Allgemeine Zeitung reports.
Police say the majority of the residents involved had Lebanese, Turkish, or Kurdish origins. Continue reading »

Perhaps even more brazen than the infamous theft of a bucket full of gold woth $1.6 million from an armored truck in broad daylight in Midtown Manhattan last September 29, moments ago local German press has reported that thieves broke into Berlin’s Bode Museum and made off with a massive 100-kilogram (221-pound) gold coin worth millions.
According to German media, the stolen coin is the “Big Maple Leaf”, a commemorative piece issued by the Royal Canadian Mint in 2007.

By weight alone, however, it would be worth almost $4.5 million at market prices. Continue reading »

Am 13. Januar 2017 starb plötzlich und unerwartet der Enthüllungsjournalist Udo Ulfkotte im Alter von nur knapp 57 Jahren an einem Herzinfarkt. Seither rätselt das Internet, ob es dahinter noch eine andere Wahrheit gibt. Dabei lautet die Frage wahrscheinlich nicht, ob und wie Ulfkotte ermordet wurde, sondern wer ihn auf dem Gewissen hat. In diesem Nachruf von Gerhard Wisnewski wird der Frage nachgegangen…

When German Chancellor Angela Merkel and other leaders of European Union countries reached a deal with Turkey in March 2016 to try to manage the migrant crisis, they conceded far more than a down payment of 3 billion euros, it turns out.

Merkel, Rutte and Turkish Prime Minister Ahmet Davutoglu reached an understanding on the number through a “gentleman’s agreement,” Die Welt reported, and they did not reveal this number to their fellow European leaders or the public.

The ‘Energiewende’ (transition to green energies) risks leading to a complete meltdown of Germany’s power generation sector.
The latest news is that German electricity giant Eon expects to post a massive 12.4 billion euro loss for the year 2016, NTV news site writes here. Careful not to link the loss to Germany’s failing renewable energy bid, NTV blames it on Eon subsidiary Uniper and its write-downs for “spun-off nuclear power plant business” and the “strongly fallen wholesale power prices“.
The Carnival parade float from Bad Bergzabern, Germany, that triggered an investigation by the police and State Attorney, showing Chancellor Angela Merkel behind prison bars, with the caption: “This is how traitors end up.” (Image source: SWF video screenshot)
- Germany’s police and legal systems, which took weeks to prosecute anyone in the city of Cologne in the wake of the New Year’s Eve mass sexual assaults, and then closed most of the cases after a year-long investigation, immediately swung into action against a group of small-town revellers.
- In Merkel’s Germany, you are allowed to walk free after setting fire to a synagogue, but not for mocking the Chancellor’s “sacred” refugee policy.
- While German police are busy raiding homes across the country and targeting citizens who write “hateful” or “offensive” Facebook postings, mosques in German are openly preaching anti-Semitism and ISIS-style jihadism.
Carnival in Germany is a time for some light-hearted fun, fancy costumes and political satire. This year, many German cities held traditional float parades on Rosenmontag, or Rose Monday, many of which depicted political themes. Images of U.S. President Donald Trump took centre stage in many float processions, in some instances with his decapitated head held up high by the Statue of Liberty, in the style of an ISIS beheading.
Other floats went after nationalist European leaders and right-wing parties. In Düsseldorf, President Trump was shown standing next to a blond Hitler, joined by France’s Marine Le Pen, and the Netherlands’ Geert Wilders. Continue reading »
