Germany’s Chancellor Angela Merkle is in big trouble, as Time reports about her political crisis that could reshape Europe’s migration crisis and potentially end her ten years in power.
A massive explosion in an apartment in one of Germany’s secret “no-go-zones” might not be in the Chancellor’s best interests…
A standoff at the top level of government over Germany’s liberal migration policies threatens to collapse the fragile coalition that Merkel presides over.
Merkel wants Seehofer to wait until the E.U. summit at the end of the month, where she will attempt to find a continent-wide solution. Seehofer, who as interior minister has powers under German law to impose his suggested policy without Merkel’s approval, has agreed to this.
But the agreement has a two-week time limit. If Merkel can’t come back from the E.U. with a big enough win, Seehofer can implement the policy himself.
Meanwhile, in the Wuppertal, Germany, an area flooded with migrants, an explosion rocks an apartment building, and the German officials have decided they will not investigate the blast that rocked an entire neighborhood.
NYP is reporting that 25 people were injured, four of them severely, when an explosion destroyed an apartment building in the western German city of Wuppertal, police said Sunday.
Police said the explosion rocked the several-story building shortly before midnight Saturday with a large bang, scaring people in surrounding homes so much they ran out into the street in a panic. The detonation was so severe it destroyed the building’s attic and the top three floors, the German news agency dpa reported.
Police said they were in the dark about the cause of the explosion, dpa reported.
Where the building stood is now a huge gap in a row of apartment buildings in the city’s Langerfeld neighborhood.
Later Sunday, authorities brought in heavy equipment to tear down the remains of the ruin. They said it was too dangerous for investigators to search for evidence that might reveal the explosion’s cause because the destroyed building could collapse at any time.
Wuppertal is one of the cities identified as a “no-go-zone”. So, it shouldn’t surprise anyone that investigators have decided to forgo an investigation into the cause of the explosion, choosing to instead, destroy the building.
Finally, in March of 2018, after feeling extreme pressure from German citizens, Chancellor Merkel admitted there were “no-go-zones” in Germany.
Despite evidence of the existence of areas in Western countries, European leaders and left-wing media commentators have long denied, and sometimes even mocked, those who claim that no-go zones exist.
But Merkel, who won Time Magazine’s “Person of the Year” in 2015 in part because of her open-borders stance, mentioned their existence in an interview this week with German broadcaster n-tv as she called for a zero-tolerance policy on crime.
She said that people have a right to feel safe when they meet in public places. When asked to clarify, she specified that she was talking about no-go zones.
“It means for example that there cannot be any no-go areas, that there cannot be areas where no-one dares to go but there are such places,” she said. “One has to call them by name and do something about it.”
Douglas Murray, author of “The Strange Death of Europe” told Fox News that it was the latest example of Merkel saying one thing but doing another. He noted that in 2010, Merkel declared in Potsdam that multiculturalism had “utterly failed,” only then to massively increase immigration just a few years later.
“She is the master of being able to say the headline-grabbing thing, while doing absolutely nothing to stop the reality from worsening, and then doing everything to make it infinitely worse,” he said. –Fox News
While the mainstream media in America focuses on whether or not Angela Merkel “likes” our “tough on US borders” president, German residents are facing a horrifying national security crisis, thanks to the irresponsible open borders policy of the unpopular Chancellor Merkel.
According to Express UK – Gangs of men are preventing people from straying into once vibrant areas of the country for fear of violence, and abuse that even law enforcement has been unable to control.
There are as many as 40 places named in confidential police reports – despite repeated denials from officers – according to a report by US think-thank Gatestone Institute.
In Duisburg, neighborhoods have been reportedly “divided” by Lebanese gangs who deal drugs, extort businesses and frequently rob.
A 17-page report prepared for the NRW State Parliament revealed the extent of the problems.
In Berlin or in the north of Duisburg, areas exist where police “hardly dare to stop a car”.
Rainer Wendt, President of the German Police Union, said: “Because they know that they’ll be surrounded by 40 or 50 men.”
Mr Wendt said attacks amount to a “deliberate challenge to the authority of the state – attacks in which the perpetrators are expressing their contempt for our society.”
German media has been monitoring the situation.
Recently, N24 Television described a popular shopping and residential area, Duisburg-Marxloh, where police have become “powerless”.
The channel reported: “The descent of the district is nightmarish. Now clans claim the streets for themselves.”
The pockets of lawlessness have deeply upset communities with some witnesses to the violence claiming the problems are being exacerbated by the German government, which has relocated hundreds of thousands of asylum seekers and refugees into these areas.
According to Der Spiegel: “There are districts where immigrant gangs are taking over entire streets for themselves. Native residents and business people are being intimidated and silenced. People taking trams during the evening and nighttime describe their experiences as ‘living nightmares.”
