Germany has lost its economic freedom – Russia

The ongoing saga with the Nord Stream 2 gas pipeline and its long wait for approval and certification shows that Germany has no freedom to pursue its own economic interests, Russia’s foreign minister has claimed.

Speaking to the Russian First Channel on Thursday, Sergey Lavrov suggested that right now Berlin doesn't have economic sovereignty and is at the mercy of third parties.

“About Nord Stream 2, it’s no longer about freedom to choose alliances. It’s just freedom to carry out ordinary commercial activities on world markets,” he said. “It turns out there is no freedom for Germany to pursue its economic interests.”

The controversial Nord Stream 2 natural pas pipeline was completed in September but is yet to be certified. Approval of the project, which could have come this month, was suspended in mid-November by the German Federal Network Agency over a regulatory issue.

Democrats Use Dreaded Filibuster to Block Ted Cruz Bill Sanctioning Russia’s Nord Stream 2 Pipeline

Democrats used the Senate filibuster, which they are busy trying to eliminate, to block a bill by Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX) on Thursday that would have sanctioned companies associated with Russia’s Nord Stream 2 pipeline. The bill had 55 votes.

The filibuster requires 60 votes to end debate and move to a final vote, which meant that despite the 55-44 margin, and the votes of five Democrats in favor, the bill could not advance — a win for President Joe Biden’s approach to talks with Russia.

The Biden administration allowed the Nord Stream 2 pipeline to proceed last year — after shutting down the Keystone XL pipeline project in the U.S. to appease environmentalists — saying that the project was too close to completion to reverse.

President Donald Trump had sought to block Nord Stream 2 because it would have made Europe more dependent on Russia’s natural gas, increasing President Vladimir Putin’s leverage in the west and his ability to circumvent pipelines in Ukraine.

Situation with Nord Stream 2 reveals Germany's lack of economic freedom — Lavrov

The situation with Nord Stream 2 shows that Germany does not have the freedom to pursue its own economic interests, Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov told Channel One Russia on Thursday.

"As for Nord Stream 2, it’s no longer about the freedom to choose alliances, it’s simply about the freedom to carry out ordinary commercial activities on world markets. It turns out that Germany does not have any freedom to pursue its own economic interests. That’s where they, double standards, are most striking," he said.

Germany Lockdown Saw up to Three-Fold Increase in Child Suicide Attempts

The number of suicide attempts amongst children increased threefold during Germany’s second lockdown, according to estimates in a university hospital report.

Around three times as many children in Germany attempted suicide during the nation’s second lockdown, according to a study by Essen University Hospital.

The study was based on data gathered from 27 children’s intensive care units within the country, with the gathered data then extrapolated to provide a final figure.

According to a report by Der Spiegel, the study concludes that somewhere between 450 to 500 suicide attempts were made by children and adolescents during the period of Germany’s second lockdown.

“That is three times as many suicide attempts in 2021 as in the comparative period from mid-March to the end of May in the years 2017 to 2019,” Prof. Christian Dohna-Schwake of Essen University Hospital told Bild.

Don't Drag Nord Stream 2 Into Conflict Over Ukraine, German Defmin Says

German Defence Minister Christine Lambrecht on Thursday warned against drawing a link between the Nord Stream 2 pipeline, meant to transport natural gas from Russia to Germany, and the differences with Moscow over Ukraine.

"We should not drag (Nord Stream 2) into this conflict," Lambrecht told the broadcaster rbb in an interview.

"We need to solve this conflict, and we need to solve it in talks - that's the opportunity that we have at the moment, and we should use it rather than draw a link to projects that have no connection to this conflict."

US Senate votes against Nord Stream 2 sanctions

Democrats in the US Senate blocked the Republican proposal for sanctions against Russia over the Nord Stream 2 pipeline, saying it didn’t help Ukraine and denied President Joe Biden “leverage” to deal with the Kremlin.

Proposed by Ted Cruz (R-Texas), Senate bill 3436 would have given the White House two weeks to impose travel restrictions, asset freezes, and bans on doing business with US companies for those involved with the natural gas pipeline that runs from Russia to Germany.

‘Simply irrational’: Bundestag MP slams Ukrainian envoy’s demands to abandon Nord Stream 2

Germany needs the Nord Stream 2 gas pipeline since it can stabilize gas prices, and the requirements, particularly by the Ukrainian side, to abandon the project are irrational, German Bundestag Deputy from the party ‘Alternative for Germany’ Steffen Kotre said in response to TASS request.

"The requirements of the Ukrainian ambassador to deconstruct a ready pipeline, which is so much needed, are simply irrational. This is specifically meddling into the affairs of a third party," he said, adding that such statements made by the Ukrainian ambassador "cast a shadow on the international reputation" of Germany.

Covid Vax Death Rate 21 Times Higher Than All Other Vaxxes!

German site has compared the figures for adverse events of COVID mRNA vaccines with other vaccines. The results are nothing less than frightening

Citing the figures in the current safety report of Germany’s renowned Paul Ehrlich Institute (PEI) from December 23, 2021, found “frightening” results:

“In the last eleven months, four times as many suspected adverse reaction reports and four times as many deaths in absolute numbers were reported for COVID vaccines alone than in the last 20 years for the totality of all vaccines used in Germany.”

Using the PEI’s latest updated figures, a total of 123,347,849 doses of COVID mRNA vaccine had been administered in Germany up to November 30th, 2021. Correspondingly 196,974 adverse drug reactions (ADR) were reported, of which 1,919 were deaths.

Germany’s Priorities Are a Queer Commissioner and Female Crash Test Dummies

Sven Lehmann, Member of the Green Party, has announced that he wants to make Germany a pioneer in the fight against discrimination against transgender, homosexual and other sexual minorities. “Everyone should be able to live freely, safely and with equal rights,” he declared on Wednesday. Except of course the unvaccinated.

The federal government appointed the Green politician as the first commissioner for the acceptance of sexual and gender diversity. The new government will in future “pursue a progressive queer policy and also align family policy with the social reality of different types of families,” Lehmann announced. The SPD, Greens and FDP had already announced this plan in the coalition agreement.

The fact that nothing like this has ever existed, apparently weighed heavily on some.

Germany must treat Ukraine like Israel – Kiev

Germany has a moral responsibility for the future of Ukraine and is therefore obliged to sell Kiev arms so the country can defend itself against purported Russian aggression, its ambassador to Berlin has claimed.

Speaking as part of an interview with Funke media group published on Monday, Ukrainian Ambassador to Germany Andrey Melnik said, “we call on the [German] government to abandon its current position, which from the point of view of morality is absolutely unnecessary, and urgently provide Ukraine with the necessary defensive weapons. We have the right to self-defense.”

At present, Berlin does not supply arms to countries where there are military conflicts. The Eastern European nation has seen bloody internal fighting since the 2014 Maidan, which saw the government toppled by violent street protests, with clashes escalating in the Donbass region in recent months.

Nord Stream 2 still does not meet EU requirements – Berlin

The controversial Nord Stream 2 pipeline project does not yet meet European Union requirements for certification, and the process will remain suspended until the operator makes changes, Germany’s foreign minister said on Monday.

Speaking to the Italian newspaper La Stampa, Annalena Baerbock indicated that the future launch of Nord Stream 2 has geopolitical implications, and therefore the new government in Berlin demands that all requirements be met before certification.

Germany to delay Covid vaccine mandate – media

Germany’s plans to impose nationwide compulsory vaccination against Covid-19 likely won’t come to fruition any time soon, not due to lack of will but because of bureaucratic hurdles, media reports suggest.

In November, then-designated chancellor Olaf Scholz told Germany’s ZDF broadcaster that he expected a nationwide vaccination mandate to be introduced by February or March. Now, however, the regulation might not be in force until May or even June, the Tagesspiegel daily reported.

The delay is not a sign that Scholz’s government is any less determined to see Germans vaccinated but is merely due to a series of bureaucratic hurdles, the paper said.

Taliban weed about to attract millions in foreign investment

CPharm International (ECI), a German research and development firm, has said it is planning a multi-million-dollar investment in Taliban-controlled Afghanistan, with the aim of producing weed for medical purposes.

Following an unfortunate case of mistaken identity in late 2021, Vice media agency tracked down a German company, CPharm International (ECI), which has struck a deal with the Taliban.

Last year, a tweet from the Afghan Ministry of the Interior claimed that a firm called “Cpharm” had met with Taliban officials and would invest $450 million in Afghanistan to set up a “hashish-processing” operation. The media wrongly identified a small Australian medical consulting firm of the same name; they vehemently denied the link with the Taliban.

German City Bans Unboosted, Untested Patrons from Restaurants

The German city of Hamburg is to ban unboosted people who lack proof of a negative COVID test from restaurants as part of its rollout of new 2G-Plus rules.

Unboosted individuals will no longer be able to eat in a restaurant without a negative COVID test from Monday as part of its rollout of so-called “2G-plus” rules aimed at curbing the spread of the disease.

Those who have received a booster jab will however be permitted to dine test free, while those who are entirely unvaccinated remain unable to access restaurants at all, regardless of whether or not they have proof of a negative test.

According to a report by Bild, the new measures will also be applied to culture and indoor sports settings, alongside the “gastronomy” sector, which includes restaurants.

However, restrictions regarding retail remain unchanged, and those who are vaccinated but not boosted will remain able to gain access to shops without the need of a negative test.

Dozens of children mistakenly given Covid jabs for adults

Forty-two children aged five to 11 have been given Covid-19 vaccine doses meant for adults. Health authorities in Hanover, Germany, have claimed it should not enhance the risk of side effects.

On Monday, a spokesperson for the Hanover regional government announced that 42 children at a city zoo vaccination center had been given shots with higher concentrations, meant for adults.

The chief specialist at the health department, Marlene Graf, said the increased dose is not harmful, and no serious consequences are expected. “According to our knowledge, possible side effects should be limited to local reactions and fever,” she stated.

57% of Germans do not trust official Covid data, Health Minister admits numbers inaccurate

More than half of Germans no longer trust official Covid-19 statistics issued by the country's disease control and prevention authority, the Robert Koch Institute, a new poll has found.

A whopping 57% of those surveyed said they didn't trust the data, while 32% still deem government figures on the spread of Covid credible, according to a poll commissioned by the newspaper Bild.

The widespread skepticism is perhaps not all that surprising, given that Germany's health minister, Karl Lauterbach, himself admitted last week that the dynamics of the Omicron spread were "not being depicted accurately in the official figures because of false negatives by testing as well as delays in reporting new cases." The official dropped a bombshell when he said that the reported seven-day incidence rate was likely "two or three times" lower than the actual number of new infections.

German Protesters, Officers Hurt in COVID-19 Rally in Thuringia

Six protesters and four police officers were injured in clashes that erupted at an anti-pandemic curbs rally in the German town of Greiz in Thuringia on New Year's Day, police said.

Officers used pepper spray and batons against a crowd of some 400 people, who gathered in protest against COVID-19 limits for the unvaccinated, effective nationwide since Tuesday.

Police said dozens of criminal charges had been filed against protesters for resisting police orders, causing bodily harm and ignoring social distancing rules. Officers were lightly injured.

Around a thousand people protested restrictions elsewhere in the central German state, including in Liebenstein, Rudolstadt, Sondershausen and Soemmerda.

Opinion: Germany must face up to Russia's aggression

Preparing for war?

The government coalition's agreement was right to dedicate one of its longest sections to Russia. In addition to friendly words that attest to the depth and diversity of German-Russian relations, there is clear criticism of Russia's aggressive actions towards its neighbors.

There are direct references to "attempts to destabilize Ukraine, the violence in eastern Ukraine and the illegal annexation of Crimea" as well as the "comprehensive restriction of civil and democratic freedoms." In simple terms: Russia is waging a psychological, hybrid war that is not limited to Ukraine and neighboring countries — and is an increasing threat to the West.

Germany accused of turning EU into ‘Fourth Reich’

Speaking of Poland’s current standoff with the EU over an ongoing judicial dispute on Friday, Deputy PM Jaros?aw Kaczynski told a local newspaper that some states “are not enthusiastic at the prospect of a German Fourth Reich being built on the basis of the EU,” arguing that Berlin has abused the bloc’s legal mechanisms to deprive his country of its “right to self-determination.”

“If we, as Poles, agreed to such contemporary serfdom, we would be degraded in various ways,” he said, adding that if Poland followed the EU’s approach to economic and energy policy, it “would mean that our citizens would be poorer in a few years than they are now.”

Russia tired of smug lectures from Germany – Lavrov

Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov has said relations with Germany face serious challenges because the EU's leading state acts as though the world’s problems are created by Moscow, while those in Berlin do nothing wrong.

In an exclusive television interview with RT on Wednesday, Lavrov was asked to comment on deteriorating relations between the two countries, and to respond to German accusations that the impasse is Russia’s fault.

“They say they want to have normal relations with Russia, but first Russia has to change its behavior, full stop,” the diplomat replied. He reported that he had recently met with Annalena Baerbock, the German Foreign Minister, and that she had accepted an invitation to visit Russia.

Germany is set to introduce new anti-coronavirus restrictions ahead of New Year's Eve festivities, curbing nightlife and limiting private parties for those vaccinated to a maximum of ten people.

The impending curbs were announced by Germany’s new Chancellor Olaf Scholz on Tuesday, after a meeting with the leaders of the country’s states. The new measures will be rolled out nationwide on December 28.

“This is not the time for parties and cozy evenings with lots of people,” Scholz stated. “I would have liked to share more pleasant news just before the holidays.”

Gazprom halts gas transit to Germany via Yamal pipeline

Deliveries of Russian natural gas to Germany through the Yamal-Europe pipeline have been completely halted, data from the country’s transport operator, Gascade, revealed on Tuesday morning.

The suspension of the flow comes after a weekend in which the volume being sent through the network dropped significantly, just as demand for energy in both Russia and the rest of Europe reached its winter peak. On Monday, it was reported that state-owned giant Gazprom, the system’s operator in Russia and Belarus, had booked no capacity at all for transiting natural gas on Tuesday.

Russia shows German diplomats the door

Russia has declared two German diplomats persona non grata. Monday’s move is intended as a response to a similar decision taken by Germany last week, the Foreign Ministry in Moscow explained.

It comes just days after Berlin showed two Russian envoys the door after a German court sentenced a Russian national to life in prison over the murder of a Chechen separatist, Zelimkhan Khangoshvili, in 2019. Khangoshvili had been wanted in Russia on multiple charges. Three years prior, he had moved to Germany and applied for asylum there.

Germany responds to Russian NATO proposals

NATO should engage in dialogue with Russia but the US-led military bloc ought not stand for Moscow telling its members what to do, Germany’s new defense minister declared on Sunday, during a visit to Lithuania.

Christine Lambrecht made the statement during a press conference with her Lithuanian counterpart, Arvydas Anusauskas, in the town of Rukla. The minister said that while it was “important and right” to discuss the proposals put forward by Russia, NATO wouldn't allow Moscow to tell its member states how to “position themselves.”

The German defense minister’s recipe for de-escalating tensions boiled down to “diplomacy” paired with “credible deterrence” in response to what the West believes is Moscow’s desire to invade Ukraine. The official, who was sworn in last week, said it was no coincidence that her first foreign visit in her new capacity was to Lithuania. She assured Anusauskas, that Berlin “understands the concerns of its Baltic allies who are feeling threatened.”

1940s Calling: German Politicians Propose National Vaccine Registry

Leading political figures in Germany have signalled that they would support the country creating a vaccine registry to collect a list of those vaccinated as the new left-wing government has backed imposing a nationwide vaccine mandate.

Germany may once again follow the lead of Austria, which announced last month that it would be mandating vaccines against the Chinese coronavirus vaccine and crafting a database to track those who have complied with the government order. While the decision to implement such a mandate has yet to be agreed upon in Germany, incoming chancellor Olaf Sholz of the left-wing Social Democratic Party (SPD) has already backed the measure.

On Saturday, politicians debated the idea of a national registry should the mandate come into force. The president of the German Bundestag, Bärbel Bas, told Welt am Sonntag that she supported a national database for vaccination status.

Germany Won't Approve Nord Stream 2 Until July; EU NatGas Soars To New Record High

European gas futures surged to a record high Thursday after Germany said natural gas flows to Europe via Russia's Nord Stream 2 pipeline won't be made before July, according to Bloomberg.

Germany's federal network agency, Bundesnetzagentur, halted Nord Stream 2's certification process in mid-November. The regulator requested the Swiss-based operator of the pipeline, Russia's Gazprom PJSC, to set up a German subsidiary to comply with European regulations.

As soon as that happens, the certification process will resume. Speaking at a press conference, Bundesnetzagentur President Jochen Homann said, "a decision won't be made in the first half of 2022."

New German foreign minister calls for renewed talks on eastern Ukraine

Germany's foreign minister has called on Russia and Ukraine to resume talks over the Donbass conflict to ease tensions around concerns about a reportedly increased Russian troop presence on the frontier between the two countries.

Speaking during a trip to Stockholm, Annalena Baerbock suggested restarting the Normandy Format talks – named after those first held informally in Normandy seven years ago – between Germany, Russia, Ukraine, and France, with the aim of bringing peace to the region.

The conflict in the Donbass, in eastern Ukraine, began following the events of the 2014 Maidan, when violent street protests toppled the democratically elected government. This eventually led to two self-proclaimed republics, Donetsk (DPR) and Luhansk (LPR), declaring independence in a move not recognized by Russia, Ukraine, or any UN state. The region has seen sporadic fighting ever since. According to Kiev, Moscow is backing the separatists and is responsible for the conflict.

Germans at the gates of Stalingrad, 1942-1943

In June 1941, Hitler ordered a surprise invasion of the Soviet Union, and for most of the following year German forces drove out Soviet troops, capturing thousands of square kilometers of their country in the process.

In August 1942 the German VI Army had pushed all the way to the banks of the Volga River, near the industrial heartland of the USSR. Once captured, the Nazis breached the Volga, potentially destroying Moscow's ability to continue fighting. All they had to do was take another city. Stalingrad.

The pre-war population of Stalingrad was four million. It was a major river port as well as home to many important war and civilian industries.

Because the city bore the name of USSR leader Joseph Stalin, Hitler took a special interest in capturing the city as a personal hit on the Soviet leader. Similarly Stalin placed great importance on the capture of the city to prevent Hitler from capturing the city bearing his name..

Germany risks ‘complete loss of credibility’ – former top diplomat

There’s a lot of confusion and “unilateral verbal threats” around the Nord Stream 2 project, according to the former foreign minister of Austria, Karin Kneissl. She has described the whole situation as “very ambiguous.”

Talking to RT, she pointed to an agreement signed between the United States and Germany earlier this year. The treaty says that if there’s “some sort of militarization of the Ukraine conflict,” then the German government could consider sanctions. However, Kneissel said that “nobody has a real definition of what is such a situation when the Germans or the US government would use sanctions. There’s a lot of unilateral verbal threats around and the situation is very ambiguous.”

As for the Nord Stream 2 project, “contracts and treaties have to be kept, have to be preserved.”

Berlin’s block of Nord Stream 2 takes toll on European gas prices

The price of natural gas in Europe on Tuesday rose to $1,400 per 1,000 cubic meters after Germany said Russia’s Nord Stream 2 pipeline could not be greenlighted for launch, citing rising tensions on the Ukrainian border.

The price of January futures on the TTF hub in the Netherlands rose 5.5% to $1,428 per 1,000 cubic meters at 7:04am GMT, or $138 per megawatt-hour in household terms, according to data from the Intercontinental Exchange.

A day earlier, gas prices in Europe jumped around 10% after German Foreign Minister Annalena Baerbock said Russia’s newly constructed Nord Stream 2 pipeline could not be put in operation because it did not meet the requirements of EU energy law. Berlin suspended the pipeline’s certification process last month because its ownership structure failed to comply with the EU’s gas directive, which forbids the same company from supplying and selling energy within the bloc.

EU Members Agree to Import Nearly 40,000 Afghan Migrants, Over Half to Germany

15 EU member-states have agreed to take in nearly 40,000 migrants from Afghanistan, with over half being taken in by Germany alone.

The European Commissioner for Home Affairs, Ylva Johansson, has announced that 15 EU member-states have agreed to take in over 38,000 migrants from Afghanistan.

Of this number, it is understood that Germany, now led by Olaf Scholz of the leftist Social Democratic Party (SPD), will be taking 25,000 of the migrants — over half of the total amount being accepted by the EU.

AFP reports that the Netherlands will take the second-highest number, at just over 3,000, while Spain and France will be joint-third in the venture, taking 2,500 migrants each.

Commissioner Johansson praised the measure, calling it an “impressive act of solidarity” and claiming that preventing “irregular arrivals” requires EU members to invest in “legal ways to come to the European Union”.

Nord Stream 2 cannot be certified – Berlin

Germany’s new foreign minister, Annalena Baerbock, has said the Nord Stream 2 natural gas pipeline from Russia can’t be launched yet because it doesn’t meet EU energy requirements and “safety” concerns are outstanding.

Baerbock, a Green politician who assumed her role in the Foreign Ministry this week, discussed the fate of the multinational project in an interview with the broadcaster ZDF on Sunday. She insisted it still hadn’t met all that was required for it to be certified.

“As things stand at the moment, this pipeline cannot be approved because it does not meet the requirements of European energy law, and the safety issues are still on the table,” she said.

The Greens have openly opposed the pipeline and, during the recent election campaign and called for a halt to its construction. Their coalition partners from the social-democratic SPD have been more reserved in expressing their opinion of the project.

Germans, Australians dragged to government ‘quarantine centers’ for COVID-19

More than a dozen people have been forcibly placed in government isolation facilities in Germany while hundreds of people have been held in similar Australian centers as Western countries continue to ramp up the use of forced quarantine centers in the name of stopping COVID-19.

A recent survey by German newspaper Welt am Sonntag found that at least 15 people have been taken to quarantine facilities in Germany’s 10 largest cities since the beginning of the year.

The 15 individuals, who allegedly violated at-home isolation requirements for COVID-19, include 11 in Munich, two in Stuttgart, and one each in Düsseldorf and Frankfurt, Welt am Sonntag reported. The full number of cases is likely higher, as authorities Berlin and Leipzig did not provide figures to the paper.

Huge New Study Shows Zero COVID Deaths Among Healthy German Kids

The findings, in a nutshell: if you let your healthy child or teenager receive the mRNA Covid vaccine, you are insane...

German physician-scientists reported Monday that not a single healthy child between the ages of 5 and 18 died of Covid in Germany in the first 15 months of the epidemic.

Not one.

Even including children and adolescents with preexisting conditions, only six in that age range died, the researchers found.

Germany is Europe’s largest country, with more than 80 million people, including about 10 million school-age children and adolescents.

Serious illness was also extremely rare. The odds that a healthy child aged 5-11 would require intensive care for Covid were about 1 in 50,000, the researchers found. For older and younger children, the odds were somewhat higher, about 1 in 8,000.

Germans, Australians dragged to government ‘quarantine centers’ for COVID-19

More than a dozen people have been forcibly placed in government isolation facilities in Germany while hundreds of people have been held in similar Australian centers as Western countries continue to ramp up the use of forced quarantine centers in the name of stopping COVID-19.

A recent survey by German newspaper Welt am Sonntag found that at least 15 people have been taken to quarantine facilities in Germany’s 10 largest cities since the beginning of the year.

The 15 individuals, who allegedly violated at-home isolation requirements for COVID-19, include 11 in Munich, two in Stuttgart, and one each in Düsseldorf and Frankfurt, Welt am Sonntag reported. The full number of cases is likely higher, as authorities Berlin and Leipzig did not provide figures to the paper.

Germany: ‘Allahu Akbar’ Migrant Knifeman Threatened to Slaughter Children

An Eritrean migrant has been convicted of attacking two men with a knife while also threatening to kill children in the car park of a local shopping centre in the German city of Dresden.

Eritrean migrant Ismail M. approached a number of children said to be around 13-years-old at a car park of the Gorbitz Center in June and made a throat-slitting gesture while stating “I’ll slaughter you!”

The 26-year-old Eritrean was then confronted by a pair of Iraqis who noticed that he had been yelling at the children. One of the men, Muhamed Al M., told news website TAG24: “I came from work. Then we saw the man yelling at the children. We are there to protect the children.”

Achmut, the other Iraqi man involved in the incident, added: “He insulted our mothers, shouted insulting words and ‘Allahu Akbar’… At first he shouted in German. When he learned that we were Iraqis, he yelled at us in Arabic.”

In Germany, Covid management is being militarized

A general with experience from operations in Kosovo and Afghanistan and the NATO Defender Europe major maneuvers will in future lead the Corona crisis team of the new German government. Breuer is called “General Corona” in the Bundeswehr.

The tasks of his command also include the operation of military training areas and practical measures in connection with host nation support, i.e. the stay of troops from allied states in Germany and their transit. In this context, Major General Breuer was tasked with assisting the advance of US troops towards the Russian border during the Defender Europe maneuvers.

He now runs the new Corona crisis team, a supposedly civil body, from an office in the Federal Chancellery. By assigning posts to a general, the new government, in which the Greens have a strong position, is pushing for the normalization of a military response to a health issue.

Four injured after old WWII aircraft bomb explodes in Munich - police

Four people were injured when an old aircraft bomb exploded at a bridge near Munich's busy main train station on Wednesday, police said on Twitter, raising the number of wounded from three earlier.

The Munich fire brigade said one of the people was seriously injured.

More than 2,000 tonnes of live bombs and munitions are discovered each year in Germany, more than 70 years after the end of World War Two.

British and American warplanes pummelled the country with 1.5 million tonnes of bombs that killed 600,000 people. Officials estimate that 15% of the bombs failed to explode, some of which were buried six meters (20 feet) deep in the ground.

Why Germany’s new leader is a major threat to the EU

Incoming German chancellor Olaf Scholz has been clear about his intention to pursue a federal European state. But far from bringing the European Union’s member countries closer together, his plan could rupture it completely.

Scholz will become the new chancellor of Germany within the next 10 days, heading a ‘traffic light’ coalition made up of his own party, the SPD, the Greens, and the Free Democrats.

The top jobs will be divided between the leaders of the respective parties, with the three most powerful positions going to Scholz, the leader of the SPD; the FDP’s Christian Lindner, who will be finance minister; and the Green co-leader Annalena Baerbock, who will become foreign minister.

Ukraine demands Germany pay up for WWII damage

Ukraine’s top diplomat in Berlin has demanded that Germany must pay for what he describes as the theft of priceless heritage from the country by the Nazis during WWII, as well as for subsequent deals made on cultural artifacts.

In an open letter published on Monday, Andrey Melnik, the Eastern European country’s ambassador said he refused to attend a concert marking the repatriation of Johann Sebastian Bach’s archive under the terms of a deal concluded just two decades ago.

In the statement, the envoy argued that Kiev is still owed compensation “for the enormous losses in cultural heritage during the Nazi occupation, as well as from the point of view of supporting [Ukraine] on its path to membership in the EU.”

The report details documents obtained by Axios wherein Congressional members are warned that fresh Biden admin sanctions would "ultimately damage transatlantic unity" and leave Washington's credibility weakened.

UK Army Reestablishes 'Permanent' Germany Presence Directed At "Russian Threat"

The United Kingdom announced at the end of last week that the military will ramp up its permanent presence of troops and tanks in Germany, a year after drawing down its large Cold War-era presence there. British media appeared unanimous in citing that it was in the face of the "Russian threat" - with the premier newspaper The Sunday Times describing a "brigade-sized force" will now be closer to eastern Europe "in the event of war with Russia."

"Hundreds of vehicles including tanks and drones will be deployed back to Germany in a government U-turn as the army builds one of its three big overseas hubs in the country," The Times wrote in reference also to Oman and Kenya, which will additionally form the three new "regional land hubs" of the army's foreign deployments.

Germany Warns US Congress Nord Stream 2 Sanctions Will 'Damage Transatlantic Unity', Docs Show

The German Embassy in Washington reportedly handed American congressmen a document saying that the pipeline poses no threat to Ukraine or the EU and arguing that new restrictions could undermine US-German ties and weaken the credibility of the US government.

The German government has called upon US congressmen not to impose sanctions on the Nord Stream 2 pipeline, insisting that doing so will "damage transatlantic unity", Axios has reported, citing newly obtained documents.

"US Sanctions targeting Nord Stream 2 would undermine the commitment given to Germany in the Joint Statement, weaken the credibility of the US government, and endanger the achievements of the Joint Statement, including the provisions supporting Ukraine", the German "non-paper" dated 19 November and marked as "classified" said.

Germany’s Incoming Government Agrees to Keep Hosting US Nukes

Germany’s incoming government said in a coalition deal that it will continue hosting US nuclear weapons.

The announcement comes after some speculation that the new government might be opposed to the presence of nuclear weapons based on earlier comments by members of the political parties forming the coalition. The government is being formed by the Social Democratic Party(SDP), the Green Party, and the Free Democrats.

Germany has no nuclear weapons of its own but has between 15 and 20 US B-61 nuclear gravity bombs at the Büchel Airbase and a fleet of Tornado fighter bombers to deliver them as part of a NATO agreement.

Members of the Greens and the SDP have previously voiced opposition to the arrangement, causing NATO to press the country to continue hosting the nukes. NATO Secretary-General Jens Stoltenberg said if Germany stopped hosting the nukes, the alliance would move them further east, closer to Russia.

On 19 November, German Army Lieutenant General Jürgen-Joachim von Sandrart relieved the Polish Army Lieutenant General S?awomir Wojciechowski as Commander Multinational Corps Northeast (MNC NE) during a change-of-command ceremony at Baltic Barracks.

In his final address, LTG Wojciechowski emphasized that in the last three years the Corps had remained at the centre of adaptation and change across the Alliance’s north-eastern flank:

A German doctor committed suicide by writing that he could no longer deceive his patients

The head of the Chemnitz clinic in Germany committed suicide because of the “vaccination lie”.

Thomas Jenges committed suicide by jumping from the roof of the hospital. In his suicide note, the doctor allegedly justified his move by saying that he could no longer tolerate the “constant lies and scams about supposedly harmless vaccinations” associated with C0vid.

Dr. Thomas Jenges wrote a rather impressive suicide letter that he demanded to be published. In it, he is said to have sharply criticized the government’s information policy on the dangers of C0vid-19 vaccinations. The doctor could no longer endure the constant lie that vaccines were supposedly harmless. And he could no longer deceive patients.

In the note, Yanges strongly condemns the vaccination of the population with the experimental and deadly C0vid-19 vaccine, which is actually a biological warfare agent. In his opinion, this is genocide and a crime against humanity.

New study from Germany confirms higher vax coverage --> higher excess mortality

I just got a new study from a friend in Germany (Max Langen).

What this new German study shows is: The higher the vaccination rate, the higher the excess mortality.

I can’t say I’m surprised. These are the deadliest vaccine in human history by a factor of over 800. But it is always nice to get confirmation from multiple sources who have no conflicts.

The authors write (translated into English): “The correlation is + .31, is amazingly high and especially in an unexpected direction. Actually, it should be negative, so that one could say: The higher the vaccination rate, the lower the excess mortality. However, the opposite is the case and this urgently needs to be clarified. Excess mortality can be observed in all 16 countries…”

In plain English: vaccination makes things worse, not better.

Euro winter of Covid discontent: Now Germany bans unvaccinated people from restaurants as continent goes on 'red alert' for Christmas lockdowns, French protest against further restrictions and Belgians are ordered to work from home

Germany is following Austria's example in locking-down unvaccinated people in regions where hospitals are becoming 'dangerously full' of Covid patients.

Chancellor Angela Merkel yesterday announced that the move is 'necessary' to tackle a 'very worrying' fourth wave of the pandemic that is overwhelming hospitals, and blamed the unvaccinated for driving the surge.

Europe has become the epicentre of the pandemic once again, with the World Health Organisation warning that the Continent was the only region in the world where deaths had increased as Covid-related fatalities spiked by five per cent just this week.
