(AFP) – Germany’s economy, Europe’s largest, grew by 0.4 percent in the second quarter, federal statistics office Destatis said in data released on Wednesday.
Gross domestic product (GDP) increased by 0.4 percent between April and June, adjusted for seasonal, calendar and price effects — slower than the unexpectedly strong 0.7 percent expansion in the first quarter.
If ordinary Germans were not traumatized enough by this weekend’s shocking official announcement that they should prepare to stockpile several days of food and water “in case of an attack of catastrophe” as part of the country’s revised “Civil Defense Concept”, then the latest news from German press agency DPA, which cites a confidential document prepared by the government according to which the government is considering “bringing back nationwide conscription in times of crisis”, such as situations in which the country needs to “defend NATO’s external borders,” will surely put them over the edge.
“An attack on German territory that would require conventional defence is unlikely,” the document said. However, civil defence measures are necessary because a “major security threat in the future cannot be ruled out,” it added. Continue reading »

People with Turkish roots living in Germany should show a “high level of loyalty” toward their adopted country, according to Chancellor Angela Merkel. It comes amid tense relations between Berlin and Ankara.
“We expect that people of Turkish origin who have been living in Germany for a long time should develop a high level of loyalty to our nation,” Merkel told Ruhr Nachrichten newspaper in an interview published on Tuesday.
“Therefore we are trying to have open ears to hear their concerns and to understand them. And for this we are also keeping in close contact with immigrant associations,” she continued. Continue reading »
The German regional interior minister who shot to prominence over his alleged role in the failure to handle, and subsequent cover-up of the Cologne New Year’s Eve migrant rape attacks has spoken out against Germany introducing a French-style Burqa ban, saying to do so would mean banning all religious clothing — including Santa Claus outfits.
Ralf Jäger, interior minister of migrant crime-hit German state North Rhine-Westphalia (NRW) made the remarks amid intense discussion in Germany following calls by the national interior minister Thomas de Maiziere for a partial burqa ban.
The left wing politician rejected the rationale for banning the Islamist garment, and said it was purely motivated by right-wing parties trying to shore up their poll positions. Speaking on Bavarian radio, Jäger said: “A burqa ban brings no security, but [is driven] only by election campaigns in some [German] states”, reportsFocus. Continue reading »
(AFP) – German Chancellor Angela Merkel called Tuesday on the EU and North African countries to do deals modelled on a controversial agreement with Turkey to stem migrant flows to Europe.
Under the EU-Turkey agreement, Ankara agreed to take back one Syrian who made it to Greece in return for being allowed to send one from its massive refugee camps to the bloc in a more orderly redistribution programme.
The deal also pledges billions of euros in EU aid for Turkey, visa-free European travel for Turkish citizens and accelerated EU membership talks. Continue reading »
Children granted refugee status in Germany will cost the country an extra 67 billion euros (£58bn/$76bn) to educate, according to an assessment of the costs of the migrant crisis.
Around 40 per cent of the million+ people who arrived in Germany last year are believed to be 20 or younger, meaning the country could need up to 25,000 new teachers while migrant children are denied places because schools are already full.
Dieter Dohmen, president of the Research Institute for the Economics of Education and Social Affairs, said the report showed the challenge facing German authorities. Continue reading »
For the first time since the end of the Cold War, the German government plans to tell citizens to stockpile food and water in case of an attack or catastrophe, the Frankfurter Allgemeine Sonntagszeitung newspaper reported on Sunday.
Following Angela Merkel’s proclamation that Islamic terrorism is not a function of the massive influx of muslim immigrants into Germany thanks to he immigration policy, we could not help but be a little surprised that, as TagesSchau reports, the federal government, according to a newspaper report wants to encourage the population to begin stockpiling food and water again, so that they temporarily can take care of themself in the case of a disaster or an armed attack. As Reuters details, Continue reading »
German authorities are set to introduce a new state defense plan that would make citizens stockpile food and water, enough to last for at least ten days, in the event of a major disaster or an armed attack, local media revealed.
The nation is to be encouraged to put away food reserves to take care of themselves in case of emergency, Frankfurter Allgemeine Sonntagszeitung (FAS) daily reported on Sunday citing a 69-page draft drawn up by the Interior Ministry.
“The population will have to hold an individual food stock that is to last ten days,” the document titled “Concept for Civil Defense” reportedly said. Continue reading »
This response was given by Vice Chancellor and leader of the Social Democrats Sigmar Gabriel after the Heidenau Merkel visit in 2015 in which she was insulted by a lot of bystanders of worried citizens opposing the creation of refugee centers in their neighbourhood.
Gabriels labeling has backfired, since nationalists now proudly reference it as an example of him betraying our country and people.
“Many people are increasingly feeling unsafe. Every law-abiding citizen should be in a position to defend themselves, their family and their friends,” AfD Chairowman Frauke Petry told the Funke Media Group in an interview published on Saturday. “We all know how long it takes until the police can get to the scene, especially in sparsely populated places,” she said.
My contacts in Germany are telling me that even in the major cities it will take way too long for the police to get to the scene.
Integration into the job market for migrants has become a major ongoing task for the German government but in one town migrants are refusing to work entirely.
One of the major issues of the migrant crisis is Germany and elsewhere has been the economic impact the massive wave of migrants will have in Europe. While some experts initially were optimistic about a potential vast new source of skilled labour, most economists have come to the conclusion that the migrants who have arrived are for the most part unskilled and poorly educated.
Yet in own Saxon town, they have moved past the usual barriers but the migrants have declared they don’t want to work anyway, reportsOE24. Continue reading »
As the number of underage migrants coming to Europe grows, many cannot afford the trip and end up in the hands of organized criminal gangs who force them into prostitution.
A club in Dortmund is attempting to tackle this problem. The “Midnight Mission” club is located in a small house in a rough area, but for the girls living there it is preferable to a life of sexual slavery. The director of the Midnight Mission club claims that due to their migrant background many of the young girls and boys slip through the cracks, reports Frankfurter Allgemeine Zeitung.

German gangs are recruiting new members from asylum seekers, the head of the German police union told RT, adding there are cases when a few days after a refugee camp is set up, “black limousines” apparently containing gang recruiters were spotted.
“In Berlin we have big groups of criminal family clans, among them are groups with Arabic and Asian backgrounds as well as Russians. We have the entire spectrum here,” Bodo Pfalzgraf, head of the German police union in Berlin, said.
He added that the structure of such clans “is based on family connections.”Continue reading »
REUTERS — Nine Iraqi asylum seekers and refugees have been arrested over the alleged gang rape of a 28-year-old German woman in Vienna on New Year’s Day, Austrian police said on Monday, a case likely to fuel public debate over immigration and crime.
Austria has not seen scenes like those in the German city of Cologne on New Year’s Eve, when hundreds of women told police they had been groped, attacked and robbed by mobs of men.
But immigrants have been accused of isolated sexual and other attacks committed in Austria, which has helped harden public opinion against an open-door policy toward migrants fleeing war and poverty in the Middle East and elsewhere, as the Cologne episode did in Germany. Continue reading »
(REUTERS) – The head of the far-right Alternative for Germany (AfD) says Berlin should send rejected asylum seekers and illegal immigrants to islands outside Europe and turn its refugee office into an emigration bureau.
The influx of over one million migrants last year fuelled support for the AfD, which now has seats in eight of Germany’s 16 state assemblies and is expected to make a strong showing in state votes next month in Berlin and Mecklenburg-Vorpommern.
Party leader Frauke Petry made the suggestions in an interview with the Bild newspaper published on Saturday. Continue reading »
Good Morning, I’m still reporting on the invasion.
What is driving the migrant invasion of Europe? The vast differential between the income in their native countries and that which the generous European socialist welfare systems bestow on migrants who get “asylum” status.
So the trick is to join the migration to Europe and ditch your identification papers and claim to be fleeing the war in Syria. In the past, refugees of war have been granted official “asylum” status under an expedited process that has so overwhelmed system, that it is now nothing but a sham. Last year, 96% of those claiming to be fleeing from Syria were rubber-stamped into Germany. Continue reading »

The government passed a law that allows them to take 1.5 billion euros from the liquidity reserve of the public health care fund (10 billion euros in total, paid by all members and additionally by the taxpayer) and to give that money to refugees / asylum seekers.
What would you call this? Insane?
We thought a reminder of the tensions that are bubbling under the surface in Germany.
As VoxDay noted appropriately, Germany’s elite is going to get a well-deserved one soon as German President Joachim Gauck was booed and attacked in the streets of Sebnitz, Saxony after he blurted out the following unbelievbable statement:
“The elites are not the problem, the people are the problem.”
Official German State TV and State Radio reported that “a handful of right wing extremists” have attacked the president and disturbed the otherwise peaceful and welcoming reception of the President. This is simply not the case, as seen in the video…
The people repeatedly shouted “Traitor!”, “Get out!”, “We don’t want STASI Pigs” and “We are the people!”. Continue reading »
