Not one of our original posts but in the context of all the anti - white bullshite we see from (mostly white) supporters of the neo - fascist 'progressive left' it was one we felt we had to share.

There appears to be no end in sight to Germany's crisis of democracy as the European Union's most populous and economically powerful state continues to stumble along without an effective government. Coalition talks between Chancellor Merkel's CDU/CSU and the left wing Greens and classical liberal Free Domocrats have stalled over irreconcilable policy demands.
This government paralysis has continued since the September vote failed to produce a viable coalition. As frustration grows among voters over potential partners’ inability to come to an agreement, desire among the voting public for another election grows. Merkel is reluctant to take this course as the political establishment fear it will lead to further massive gaines for the anti - immigration, anti EU party Alternatif fur Deutschland (AfD). The bureaucratic dictatorship in Brussels which effectively controls the EU is determined to stop any anti - EU party becoming part of a ruling coalition and has caused similar crises in Belgium, Spain, Portugal, Netherlands and Austria by trying to defy the will of the people.
Sixty eight per cent of Germans, in a recent poll, said they now favour another election if the so-called ‘Jamaica coalition’ fails to materialise, reports Zweites Deutsches Fernsehen.
Just 29 per cent of Germans oppose another election — and even if the present coalition talks succeed, just 50 per cent said they favoured it taking power. It certainly seems the incompatibility of the Greens and Free Democrats would make stable government impossible.
The idea of a fresh set of elections has been labelled as a disaster for Germany’s political establishment, as admitting coalition talks had failed would be a signal of the incapacity of democratically elected parties, Senior CDU politician and current Schleswig-Holstein Minister President Daniel Günther has said.

Have the Krauts lost the plot or are they so Islamified momories of what happened the last two occasions they demanded surrender from Britain?
Britain's chief negotiator in the Brexit process to separate our sovereign nation from the EU's bureaucratic dicttorship, David Davis, addressing a German business conference, said that his government is pursuing a ‘No Change’ transition deal with the EU, and that Britain will remain "the same country it has always been" after Brexit. Top EU negotiators have opted for a position that would rewquire Britain to be subject to the authority of the Union while having none of the benefits of membership.
His speech, which also confirms that the Conservative government is seeking a so-called transition period of “about two years”, will come as a surprise to Leave voters who hoped Brexit could usher in radical change and reform before 2020.
The 68-year-old framed his remarks in terms of Britain not turning isolationist, stating: “I read [in the German press] that ‘Britain wants to isolate itself’, that we are ‘short-sighted islanders’ … Well, I’m afraid I have to disagree.
"We are the same country we have always been. With the same values and same principles we have always had. A country upon which our partners can rely." In fact it is the EU that is isolationist in spite of their professed support for globalism. The suffocating burden of EU bureaucracy make it almost impossible for many third world countries to do business with customers in the EU while compliance costs EU firms so much their products cannot compete in export markets.
Elaborating on the EU's (for EU reasd Germany and France,) controversial transition deal proposals, David said that the Tory government envisages it as a period in which Britain retains "both the rights of a European Union member and the obligations of one, such as the role of the European Court of Justice," and "staying in all the EU regulators and agencies" during that period.
This means the Tories plan on leaving Britain’s relationship with the bloc completely unchanged — except that it may lose its representation in the European Parliament — until at least 2021. The EU is still refusing to compromise on its demands that Britain's relationship with the EU will remain unchanged in perpetuity.
Top German MEP Hans-Olaf Henkel, himself a former head of the Federation of German Industries (BDI), said he believes that Berlin — like Michel Barnier and Guy Verhofstadt — wants "unconditional surrender" from Britain on everything from the ECJ to the divorce bill, and that this attitude may lead to talks collapsing.
The European Union (EU) believes that the best possible outcome of Brexit talks is a limited Canada-style trade deal with the UK, leaked documents from the Commission have revealed. Brussels officials believe the UK’s insistence on leaving the Single Market and European Court of Justice (ECJ) means that a deeper relationship cannot be achieved, contrary to the promises of British politicians.
The EU document, leaked to the Politico website, stated that "single market arrangements in certain areas" or the "evolution of our regulatory frameworks" could not be managed within EU law as it stood.
The UK would have to be satisfied with a "standard FTA (free trade agreement)", the paper adds.
Britain’s desire for “regulatory autonomy” and wish to be free of ECJ rulings mean it is “not compatible” as a partner within the EU framework, it is claimed. In other words the EU sees their desired outcome as Britain leaving the EU in name only but continuing to contribute financially and be subject to EU regulatory authority. NO DEAL then.

Defense and foreign ministers from 23 European Union countries signed up to a plan to establish the Permanent Structured Cooperation (PESCO), which will allow countries to cooperate more closely on security operations and building up military capability.
EU foreign policy chief Federica Mogherini described the signing of PESCO as a "historic moment in European defense."
The decision to launch PESCO indicates Europe's move towards self-sufficiency in defense matters instead of relying solely on NATO. The EU, however, also stressed that PESCO is complimentary to NATO, in which 22 of the EU's 28 countries are members.
NATO Secretary General Jens Stoltenberg welcomed the launch, saying that he saw it as an opportunity to "strengthen the European pillar within NATO." Stoltenberg had previously urged European nations to increase their defense budget.
"I'm a firm believer of stronger European defense, so I welcome PESCO because I believe that it can strengthen European defense, which is good for Europe but also good for NATO," Stoltenberg said.
This can only underline what an enormous threat to world peace and national sovereignty the EU has become and how right Brtish voters were to vote for Brexit. The EU is no longer an economivc union, it is on the way to becoming an authoritarian, InterNational Socialist Empire. If we remind you of a story run by the left wing and staunchly pro EU newspaper The Guardian during the referendum campaign:
Is there a secret plan to create an EU army?
Claims from the leave side about moves to unify Europe’s armed forces are nothing more than fantasy
The Guardian now claims they simply got it wrong. If they did they are a bunch of incompetent wankers who should not be running a news organization because EU Commission President, Jean Claude Juncker, European Council president Donald Tusk and President of the European Parliament, Martin Schulz were all on record as having stated that an EU army was essentiale. More likely however is that jouranists and editors did what lefties always do when face with inconvenient truths. THEY LIED.
Leader of this push for pan - Euroipean militarism is the usual suspect whenever world domination ambitions are mentioned. Yes, Germany Is Quietly Building A European Army Under Its Command
What does it take to wake people up, the European Union is goosestepping towards Naziism.

As usual The Daily Stirrer was moths ahead of the mainstream in reporting this.
Civilians in Yemen are still in the grip of a major humanitarian crisis as Saudi Arabia's war on the impoverished republic continues unabated. Shocking numbers are affected including 7 million civilians facing severe malnutrition, and 19 million out of the country’s 27 million population "in need of some form of aid." However, all of this is made worse by the Saudis having imposed a blockade on humanitarian support. It effectively genocide and yet the United Nations does nothing and the USA and NATO allies impose sanctions on nations which try to help Yemen.
Yemen has been devastated by more than two years of brutal civil war, with Sunni Muslims loyal to the oppressive regime, supported by the Saudi Arabian government's well equipped military and politically by the United States. President Abd-Rabu Mansour Hadi’s government is backed by the Saudi-led coalition and is fighting to drive the Shi'ite Houthi rebels out of cities they seized in 2014 and 2015.
Since the beginning of the conflict, US support for Saudi Arabia in Yemen, started by Obama and continued by Trump, thousands of innocent civilians—including children—have been slaughtered by American and European manufactured weapons. In spite of the fact that the Saudis have been caught dropping US bombs on schools, hospitals, and marketplaces, (remember the faux outrage from liberal media and politicians when Assad's forces were accused of doing that in Syria, even though a blind, deaf and dumb person could have seen those alleged atricities were false flag events.) The Saudis and their mercenaries have been directly targeting civilians yet the US and NATO continue to support the side controlled by the Saudis.
Last week, Houthi rebels in Yemen launched a ballistic missile toward the Saudi Arabian capital of Riyadh. In response to the attack which killed no one, the Saudis placed a blockade on all flights in Yemen, including humanitarian aid. The blockade has stopped the flow of the much needed medical supplies and the food for which millions of Yemenis are desperate and if not reversed will cause the largest genocide by starvation in modern history.
After briefing the UN Security Council last week, Mark Lowcock, the UN’s humanitarian chief, said the move will worsen a "catastrophic" humanitarian crisis that has pushed millions to the brink of famine and has caused a mass cholera epidemic, reports Al Jazeera. It is a safe bet however that three permanent members of the Security Council, Britain, France and USA will veto any move for actionagainst the Saudis.
“I have told the Council that unless those measures are lifted … there will be a famine in Yemen,” Lowcock, who visited Yemen late in October, told reporters last week. “It will not be like the famine that we saw in South Sudan earlier in the year, where tens of thousands of people were affected. It will not be like the famine which cost 250,000 people their lives in Somalia in 2011,” he added.
In spite all this being common knowledge, for three years the West has seen what was happening yet stood on the sidelines and refused to act. Strangely the same nations were eager to get involved in Syria and Ukraine until it became clear the price would be confrontation with Russia. Children are starving by the thousand in Yemen because of a US / NATO policy of supporting Saudi Arabia no matter what war crimes and human rights abuses the primitive theocracy is guilty of. All Western nations are complicit as is the United Nations by not only failing to step in and stop it but actually aiding it.

Many of us purchase our chocolate without thinking about who made it, and that’s a problem, since a variety of large corporations have been accused of using child slavery to give you your chocolate fix.
Denis MacShane: I was too much of a 'liberal leftie' and should have done more to investigate child abuse
In a rare moment of candour disgraced former Labour Member Of Parliament for Rotherham, Dennis MacShane admitted he could have done more to protect the victims of sex abuse gangs in his constituency who preyed on young girls in the local authority care system. While maintaing he knew of no specific allegations MacShane said he could have investigated rumours circulating in the town.

Senior CDU politician and current President of the Schleswig-Holstein provincial government, Daniel Günther tried to rally members of the party saying that a coalition deal between the CDU/CSU, the libertarian Free Democrats, and the Green Party must be agreed on soon as another election could be a disaster for the party.
Günther appealed to CDU negotiators to concede more to the left-wing Greens on asylum seeker issues or they may trigger a snap election which, he said, would fuel the continued rise of "extremism", Der Spiegel reports.
When he refers to extremism Günther means the anti - immigration, Eurosceptic AfD (Alternative for Deutschland) party, which is actually not extreme in the way the Greens are extreme
A new election, “would be a signal of the incapacity of democratically elected parties and be a breeding ground for extremists”, Günther said, revealing his party fears another election would result in massive gains for the anti-mass migration party which in September’s election came from nowhere to be the third largest party in the Bundestag. Other right wing political groups in Germany have no significant support.
Much of the current dispute stems around asylum seekers. The Greens have insisted that failed asylum seekers from Afghanistan should not be deported because the country is too dangerous, while Merkel promised last year that she would seek to increase deportations of illigal immigrants and failed asylum seekers.
Despite the promise, very few asylum seekers have been deported and Horst Seehofer, head of the CDU’s sister party the Bavarian Christian Social Union (CSU), said that large-scale deportations were "almost impossible".
Last month, CSU negotiator Alexander Dobrindt accused the Greens of deliberately attempting to stall the negotiations in the hope that Mrs. Merkel would be desperate enough to give in to all their extreme left wing demands. This of course would drive the Free Democrats to quit the coalition.
“The Greens provoke the failure of Jamaica. Anyone who presents their arguments completely without regard to the refugee crisis, the polarisation in our country, the resulting electoral successes of the AfD, and the tensions in Europe, seems to have no serious interest in forming a government,” he said. The Green's attitude is typical of a Marxisty party of course, ideology is all, the concerns of citizens are irrelevant.
The latest polling shows the CDU / CSU still with a comfortable lead and the AfD in third, but a collapse of the coalition talks could shake up the political landscape and some say it would be unlikely that Angela Merkel cold continue as leader of the party should a snap election be called.

One of the most shocking documents in the "Paradise Papers," which have leaked the secrets of the super rich to the world revealed an "entrepreneur" charged with managing the oil wealth of the African state of Angola, where most of the population live in poverty, was paid more than $41m in just 20 months by the wealth fund he managed according to extracts from the documents opublished by The Guardian.
The money was paid as management fees (a standard euphemism for funds filtered by corporate crooks,) via a complex web of companies set up in offshore jurisdictions, mainly the Inidian Ocean island republic of Mauritius but with links to tax havens in The Caribbean and Europe. Jean-Claude Bastos also used his privileged position to help set up large investment deals he stands to further profit from, the Papers show.
All sides deny any wrongdoing.
Like many oil rich countries, Angola set up a sovereign wealth fund to invest the proceeds of its natural resource wealth. Similar schemes have been used by other countries, notably Norway, to help ensure a steady income for future generations.
Angola, like most African nations, is wracked by corruption and suffers extreme poverty. It also has one of the highest child mortality rates in the world.
The fund, Fundo Soberano De Angola (FSDEA), which was set up with capital of with $5bn (£3.75bn) in 2011, was surrounded by controversy from the start; the then Angolan President Eduardo dos Santos' son, 39-year-old Jose Filomeno, was appointed as its first CEO. Jean-Claude Bastos, sometimes also known as Jean-Claude Bastos de Morais, a Swiss-Angolan and close friend of the then president's son, was chosen as the fund's asset manager.
Typically, a fund of this size would spread the risk of investment among several asset managers, along with the fees it pays, said one expert. Instead of this risk spreading, Mr Bastos was given responsibility for investing almost all of the fund's money, and was paid accordingly. His company Quantum Global Investments Africa Management, manages about 85% of it.
One expert described the situation as "unusual". Andrew Bauer, an authority on sovereign wealth funds, told the BBC: "Funds want to hedge the risk. You don't want to put all your eggs in one basket."
Well we can guess that's why they are known as 'hedge funds'.
In a statement, the FSDEA said the appointment of Mr Bastos' company to manage the fund followed "an objective process". The firm was selected, it said, because of its "exemplary performance on previous mandates with the Angolan authorities".
The fund also said giving near total control of investments to one asset manager was part of its policy for the first 18 months only. Leaked documents included among the Paradise Papers investigation show the fund paid management fees of more than $90m (£67.5m) to Mr Bastos' Mauritius-based QG Investments Africa Management. This occurred over a 20-month period between May 2014 and the end of 2015.
The leak offers an unprecedented insight into what happened to the management fees after being paid into Mr Bastos' company. This money was split into two main chunks - with $41m declared as dividends, or pure profit, and deposited in a company in the British Virgin Islands, itself owned by a series of secretive offshore companies ultimately owned by Mr Bastos. A further $34m was paid in advisory fees to a Swiss firm majority owned by Mr Bastos. The rest, after minor expenses, was retained in the management company run by Mr Bastos.
Unfortunately such arrangements are perfectly legal. Such practices are made possible by the process of globalisation, while politicians and the media hype up the touchy - feely, all-join-hands-and-sing-Kumbaya aspects of globalism, such as free movement of people, which far from helping the poor actually facilitates people trafficking rackets, but the real benefit of globalsation is it allows the free movement of money, which benefits the hyper rich enormously.
When asked whether secrecy surrounding his activities was the reason for the series of companies registered offshore, Bastos said it was entirely his personal choice how he receives dividends from his companies. He also said the dividends he receives "pale in comparison to the long term positive impact my projects will have in Angola".
Both the fund and Mr Bastos said the management fees paid to Quantum Global Investments Africa Management are in line with global industry standards.
