Here...I'll just leave you with the text from one of your favorite MSM outlets...none other than CNN:



Angela Merkel may be the biggest loser of 2017




She once strode across the European stage like a colossus.

German Chancellor Angela Merkel used to be the de facto leader of mainland Europe, the guardian of the continent's liberal ideals, champion of European unity and standard bearer of German economic dominance and prowess.

This week's barbaric act of terror on the streets of Berlin, however, served as a stark reminder of the limits of Merkel's power, the inherent risks of her open borders approach to the refugee crisis and the extraordinary failures of German federal authorities in the face of the rising Islamist threat.

The chief suspect in the brutal attack on a Christmas market at the heart of Berlin is a Tunisian asylum-seeker, Anis Amri, who had already been the subject of an earlier German terror investigation but had been released instead of being deported, despite being in touch with radical Islamists, including a recruitment network for ISIS operating in Germany, German security officials told CNN.

The brutal atrocity has shone a huge spotlight on Merkel's highly controversial decision to welcome nearly 1 million migrants into Germany since the start of 2015 as well as her government's lax deportation policies and striking failure to act aggressively against Islamist militants.

Merkel's popularity had already fallen to a five-year low before this latest terror attack, with an approval rating in September of just 45%.

It will likely plunge even further in the coming weeks as public outrage swells, with discontent in the ranks of Merkel's Christian Democratic Union and its Christian Social Union partners certain to grow.

Merkel will represent her party in the German federal elections next fall, but if she is returned to office for a fourth time, it may be as a significantly diminished figure.

The Berlin attack is sending shock waves across an increasingly nervous Europe, and will intensify the criticism from other European leaders, especially in Eastern and Central Europe, of Merkel's migrant policy, which has left the rest of the continent in a far more vulnerable position.

Merkel's stance on the refugee crisis was strongly rejected by the rising powers in the east, including Poland and Hungary.
German power within the European Union was once formidable.
Today, it is increasingly challenged and rejected.

Unlike her British counterpart, Theresa May, Merkel looks remarkably out of touch with the winds of change sweeping through Europe, ignoring the growing calls for greater sovereignty and control over national borders.

She clings to a withering European project, ardently defending the European single currency while extolling the principle of freedom of movement across Europe in the face of mounting unease and fear at home and abroad.

She is also seemingly unwilling to confront the sheer scale of the Islamist terror threat to Europe, and to acknowledge the fact that her own refugee policies have greatly exacerbated the dangers.

Incredibly, Merkel has elevated a naive liberal humanitarianism over the national security of her own country.

The deep-seated problems facing Merkel are part of a broader long-term decline of German power.

In the coming decades, Germany will wrestle with a dramatically falling population and reduced economic competitiveness.

Great Britain is already on course to be Europe's largest economy by 2030, according to the Centre for Economic and Business Research, and will overtake Germany as the most populous nation in Western Europe by the middle of the century.

Merkel's heyday in the first decade of this century will likely be remembered as the highpoint of modern post-war Germany.

But the challenges faced by Germany today are significantly greater than they were just a few years ago.

Germany's Chancellor must act decisively in the face of the mounting terror threat, and regain control of her own country's borders.

Europe is dramatically changing, and Merkel must be prepared to adapt with it.


Bold is mine...just to show that her approval rating is low and still falling.

But hey...maybe they can both talk about the sleep patterns they have in common!

Move your ass to Germany already.


Hey, yeah. So, revisiting this idea. I see you have 27-ish people on board with your idea.

Are you all pitching in for my deportation, then? I trust you'll be paying for the airfare, then? And all of my stuff? You going to pack it? What about the property I own? Are you all buying me out? I can give you a price if you like.


Hmmm.......

Um. Yeah..........I'd say....*rubs chin*......
erm.....

It looks like Merkel agreed with Trump to spend more money for Germany's NATO commitment. There goes another narrative down the drain.

What about him?

The kids' father was half German, half English. Both of us are descended from "Pilgrims". Soule and Bolton and others. Would you like me to send you a file of my kids' genealogy?

I did not write the article's title.
And that, in fact, is all.

Well, to be fair, if I start a thread and use an article's headline (per T&Cs) and I don't agree with the headline's claim, I note that, otherwise it's fair game to assume that I agree with the statement of the headline.

Whether you wrote the headline doesn't matter if you passively support it by basing a thread on it.

Germany is currently only covering 1.3% of its GDP but Merkel has whispered that once the election is over, they'll take steps to increase... but it will take another seven years until Germany meets its 2% of GDP threshold required by NATO.

Trump is getting results. All he wants is funding action from these NATO members which is a win/win for Europe and the U.S.

Well, I certainly hope so, considering Germany lags far behind is NATO defense spending. All that is required is a measly 2% of your nations GDP, the minimum benchmark.

okay, I'm done here, at least for now. This episode of the BuzzyWigs Show is over. Have fun milling around, though. Chat amongst yourselves. I gotta go for now due to loss of interest. *wanders away aimlessly*

*ducks back in with one more thought*

Yeah - so. This reminds me of shopping. Some days I wake up and think "I'm going shopping!" and I do! And I last about two hours, and then I'm all like "shopping sucks. I'm going home."

So - anyway -- you all, thanks for coming to my once-in-awhile expedition here.
I didn't find anything I'm willing to buy today, though. (Awwww...)
Neither new nor used. But thanks.
