Knowing Angela Merkel — Part II

Angela Merkel’s political ideology was incubated in East Germany, the former DDR, a rigidly communist Soviet satellite republic.

Perhaps the most astonishing thing about Angela Merkel is her immunity to the political consequences of her decisions. Contrary to all promises, the cost of power has soared, yet this has not impacted her popularity. As to the 1.5 million migrants she has admitted, they haven’t budged the polls at all

In Barack Obama, Merkel had found a younger partner sharing her basic views about climate and social values, a man of mostly talk and little substance. Merkel increased the resources for a government-funded network, WBGU (Scientific Council to the Government, for Global Environmental Policy). The goal was set of a global transformation of the capitalist system in the ecological direction. The Germans on the board included Joachim Schellnhuber, Nebosja Nakicenovic, Ottmar Edenhofer and Claus Leggewie, all well -known to be left-wing.

Note – Part 1 of Knowing Angela Merkel is here.

    It is possible that the polls are all fake and the elections are all a big act to make Germans think they live in a democracy. The democratic tradition doesn’t exactly run deep in Europe, and I wouldn’t put it past them for a second. As Stalin said, “it doesn’t matter who votes, what matters is who counts the votes.
