What the German Election Means

For the quick ones: not much. However, I would be remiss to not talk about it given that everybody pretends that we had much of a choice and that we as a people were respected as the sovereignty in our own homes.

Merkel’s Pro-Forma Party Leader Annegret Kramp-Karrenberger Steps Down

The pro-forma party leader of Merkel’s CDU stepped down following the turmoils of the Thuringen Prime Minister revocation. The issue went out of control because the CDU had a non-cooperation resolution that would not allow any member to work with either AfD or SED (currently renamed to LINKE). We saw profuse Stalinist fake apologies for innocuous acts like congratulating a newly elected state prime minister of the “respectable” pseudo-libertarian party FDP. Now the bets are also open again on who the person will be that follows Merkel as a Chancellor. Maybe La Merkel – Allah may bless her and fear her wrath – must also revoke her aged, aaaaaaged announcement to retire from politics.

Thomas Kemmerich – The Thuringen State Prime Minister That Wasn’t

Yesterday, the German state of Thuringen found a new Prime Minister in Thomas Kemmerich of the pseudo-libertarian party FDP. After Angela Merkel let it known from South Africa that she was not pleased and that he should be sacked the outrage crescendo reached deafening levels and saw the man resign today. But it was not just her verdict that a vote for Kemmerich in coinciding with a congruent vote from the dark Lord-and-his-mother-be-with-us party AfD were “unforgivable”. The media saw the rise of fascism upon us and a woman of the SED (now renamed as LINKE) threw a bunch of flowers to his feet. And can’t even go through the backstabbing and flipflopping here, but the destruction of a once fairly free country is palpable and the conflicts continue to escalate.

Libertarian Party FDP Hauls in Big Money for Election Campaign

Despite the fact that the German electorate is so shiftless that the pollsters yawn, major donors still have high hopes that a minor change may occur in the case that Merkel decides not to continue her coalition government with the left-wing party SPD, but rather with the libertarian FDP.

More than 1.9 billion Euro went directly to Merkel’s party CDU this year alone, while the much, much smaller FDP could cash in more than 1.5 billions.

Culturally dominant parties SPD and the Green Party could only rack up 100,000 Euro, which shows that nobody believes in effecting a change by funding them. Meanwhile, openly Socialist party DIE LINKE lives off state funding alone.

Five out of six major donors, large corporations or extremely wealthy individuals, put their money to the Libertarians.

Despite their libertarian rhetoric the FDP has a history of solely serving the needs of the rich. They embody the clichés the left has of the right.

The investment will go the way the Hillery Clinton funding went. After all German election results are VERY rigid.
