Merkel mess…

leave a comment »

Like Hillary,  Angela Merkel doesn’t know when to shut up.   She won her fourth term as Chancellor despite having nearly destroyed her country with a ruinous immigration policy over the past twelve years.   Entire towns have been taken over by the immigrants she has welcomed,  and she simply ignores the fact that her own citizens are being robbed,  raped and killed by some of those same immigrants.

Most Germans are not allowed  to own  guns,  and the penalty for breaking the laws is quite severe.   Despite this, ordinary citizens are traveling to other countries and purchasing firearms to protect their families from the Muslim gangs terrorizing their neighborhoods.  This is first hand information from people I know who have friends and family there,  living in fear.

Now Merkel is trying  to keep  the insane Obama/Kerry Iran deal in place.  I grant you that Germans don’t have a stellar track record when it comes to selecting their leaders, but they won’t have a country left if they don’t come to their senses.   Meanwhile,  does Merkel actually believe that warning Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu to keep hands off the Iran deal, or else, is going to (a) intimidate Netanyahu, or  (b) change President Trump’s mind?

UPDATE:  Frau Merkel just admitted that her nation has  no-go zones,  a fact stoutly denied by most media everywhere.

Zuke confusion…

This German gentleman is no doubt somewhat embarrassed at having mistaken a  large zucchini  for a bomb,  but at least he didn’t make the opposite mistake with potentially deadly consequences.

Helmut Kohl, R.I.P.

leave a comment »

The long-serving  German chancellor  deserved either praise or damnation for the reunification of Germany,  depending on one’s point of view.   Since my view is that the European Union was a stinking hot mess from its inception,  I’m disinclined to shed many tears for a man who proved himself as a politician,  but was a failure as a husband and father. For others,  the jury is still out on Kohl’s legacy,  and  largely dependent on the ultimate success or failure of the EU.

I’m gonna pass…

…on this one,  thanks.    I don’t much enjoy massages anyway,  but definitely  not one  delivered by a python.   I can’t believe PETA hasn’t stormed into Germany demanding the cessation of the poor snake’s enslavement.

Germany is crazy…

leave a comment »

You probably didn’t grow up on a farm as I did,  but would you place a fox in charge of the hen house?   I very much doubt it.   Germany wants to train migrants  to be pool lifeguards to protect swimmers from sex attacks committed by…wait for it…migrants.

Gee,  how could this possibly go wrong?   Has the entire West lost its collective mind and all semblance of self-respect?

617 Squadron…

leave a comment »

The modern day 617 squadron has  recreated iconic  pictures from World War II of the original squad known as the Dam-busters for their dangerous attacks on dams in Germany.   Their heroics disrupted production for the war effort in Germany,  and no doubt shortened the war considerably.

Rope bridge…

leave a comment »

If you have a head for heights, this rope  suspension bridge  in Germany, which is about 300 feet above a canyon floor,  and nearly 1,200 feet long, is an adventure made for you.   Would I attempt it?  Yes,  because the Germans and the Swiss still know how to engineer things.
