President Trump and Chancellor Merkel Press Conference – March 17th…

President Trump and German Chancellor Merkel hold a joint press conference Friday March 17th 2017.

Chancellor Merkel again presented her view that globalization was the future of the world economy, and continued advocating for a failing multi-culturalist approach toward blended societies and reductions in national identity.  Merkel, like most of the far-left EU ideologues view Russia as an existential threat to their political objectives.

      Merkel is exceptionally intelligent and well educated (I think she has a PhD in physics or some such)–so much so that she has been able to convince herself and many many others that her globalist philosophical/political views are right, despite the glaring, objective demonstration that they are, completely wrong.

      PDJT has intelligence and competency where Merkel doesn’t–in the hard world of construction, business planning, and interpersonal skills. He is schooling her and using global manufacturing giants, like Siemens, Dow, IBM, Scheffler, and BMW to hammer the point home. She may not get it right away, but when she sees the almost failure of attempts to integrate her muzzy sub-human particles into Germany’s voc-ed programs,she will eventually wake up screaming from the nightmare she’s created in EU.

      HELLary, on the other hand, isn’t all that smart and has failed at everything she’s ever done. She has always just been willing to go beyond anyone else’s moral and ethical limits to get what she wants. If she were (shudder!) in a position of parity with Merkel, she would only want to bluster, posture, and assert herself to demonstrate her superior power–undoubtedly in the most evil manner available. She has never had any trouble sacrificing other people on the devil’s altar to gain power and she had every intention of sacrificing the entire USA for her own aggrandizement.

      Thank God for bringing PDJT to the fore, for giving Sundance and all here the light of truth, and for His continued blessings, guard, and guidance over us all to do His will!

          My parents had a few friends who were originally from Germany. I learned a great deal from these Elders, and they were always very kind to me.

          Wilbur always wore a suit coat and one of those proper hats of the old days. He was also quite adept with working with wood and his hands. I still have a few of his beautiful gifts, and I know they will last for a very long time.

          One of my Mom’s best friends, Yvonne, was from Germany. She opened up her home at a moments notice for my family when we traveled to my Father’s funeral a few weeks ago. I hadn’t seen or spoken to her since late 2013 at my Mom’s funeral. She held no anger or resentment and simply surrounded all of us with lots of Love when we were hurting.

          I quite like people from Germany. As a matter of fact, we have good people every where in this world. We are just lucky to find them and have them as our friends.

          Such a dull, and lifeless celebration. German Christmas trees are insane…they decorate with candles…fire! In addition to most Americans being of some German decent, the German people are probably the most similar to Americans. Hard work is valued, along with the ability to have a good time in balance. Both of us are warrior people at heart, slow to anger but when finally pushed too far will fight with ferocity. The German, Scot, Irish and English people can be thanked primarily for the national character that shaped and tamed this continent.

            Hear, hear! Totally agree that the German, Scot, Irish, and English are the primary foundation of our national character. There is a strong German influence on the midwest, due to the century of heavy German immigration to Pennsylvania following William Pitt’s invitation, and generations later spread out and filled the Northwest Territories. And indirectly through English colonists, through their deep Anglo Saxon roots.

            singingsoul, there was a massive propaganda effort during World War I to get Americans to despise and stereotype Germans and German speakers as “Huns!” It was called the Creel Commission, and it the media was deeply involved in spreading truly fake news.

            There was one really ugly example where a story was planted in a Shanghai newspaper about Germans re-purposing the dead bodies of their soldiers to make soap and glue. Germans were outraged about this, and as late as the 1960s, as a child, I still came across old WWI-era Americans who bought into this fake news story.

            It would be great if people in general became more skeptical of stereotype propagandizing that is used to mobilize us to kill other people “in good conscience”. At some point we’ll all get to the other side and realize what fools we’ve been, manipulated to hate and fear for the interests and uses of other people

But at the same time she is a globalist (which is against the bible, which she claims to believe), and also an idiot and useful tool of the progressives. God hates idiots. Letting people into Germany virtually without vetting is stupid.

            “Nicolas Sarkozy (Nicolas Paul Stéphane Sarközy de Nagy-Bocsa, born in Hungary) – Former Jew President of France – spoke as Chairman of the European Council on December 17th, 2008 in Palaiseau before an elected circle of EU leaders about the great goal of exterminating the White race in Europe through violence if necessary, if their goal cannot be accomplished through Miscegenation alone. The key-sentence is:

            “What is the goal? The goal is Miscegenation (race-mixing)! And if people are not willing to do this on their own free will, then we shall force them through governmental measures. The Challenge of Miscegenation of the various nations is the Challenge of the 21st Century. It is not a choice, it is a duty. It is mandatory.”

              Where did you find this site? It is…interesting.

              Just so you know, my perspective is a little different than most.

              I don’t see any of these people as black or white. It’s complicated. Even President Trump. Who I voted for and I support. Most of them are probably leaning more toward black than white though…

              I do know a few things;

              1. The heavens rule over the earth, and God places over it whom He sees fit. (Dan 4).

              2. There are those who say they are Jews but are not, but are of the Synagogue of Satan (Rev 2:9). That likely includes many currently in Israel. If you want to really start an argument go talk to a Rabbi and ask who is really a Jew, and how can you tell. Khazars anyone?

              3. This present age is building up to a point where a man will come in his own name and the whole world will receive him. He will declare himself to be God and nearly destroy the whole world (being a conduit for Satan). It’s inevitable.

              4. Israel is still God’s chosen people and will represent him in a future day. But right now because of their unbelief they have been put on the bench, and are hidden in the world and numbered among the nations, which they shouldn’t be.

              Just holding these few things in mind when looking at world politics is very helpful as a filter to see through all the noise.

                The Bible does not teach that baptism saves, nor is it necessary for salvation. It also teaches that once you become a true Christian you never not be a Christian. The Bible teaches that faith in Christ is what saves, nothing else. It is through no works of man, including baptism. Baptism is an act of obedience the believer chooses to follow to show their faith in Christ, just as the Lord’s Supper is the same. The Bible also teaches that no one who is saved will ever be taken away from Christ. I John says that those who leave the faith were never truly of the faith in the first place.

                I was baptized as an infant because my parents thought that would save me. It was may years later that had become an agnostic and I studied the Bible and the other major religions of the world and found that the God of the Bible was true. I asked for forgiveness of my sins and for Jesus to come into my life and be the Lord of my life (He rules over it and I no longer do. My desire is to do what He wants, not what I want to do.) That was when I was saved. Later, as an act of obedience I was baptized, but I was already saved.

                If baptism saved then when Jesus was on the cross and he told the thief on the cross next to Him that he would be with Him that day in Paradise, then that would have been a lie if the thief had to be baptized to be saved. But he had faith in Christ and Christ told him that because of that faith he was forgiven and would go to heaven.

                  1 Peter 3:21
                  Baptism, which corresponds to this, now saves you, not as a removal of dirt from the body but as an appeal to God for a good conscience, through the resurrection of Jesus Christ,

    The difference between the Chancellor and Our President is the global view vs the national view – she speaks as if she is a ‘world boss’ who is unconcerned about the German people – whereas President Trump speaks as a ‘national leader’ who is concerned about the American people – the journalists who offered their questions from where I do not know – appear to be trying to discredit our President as a formidable leader – “what are you afraid of as far as fake news is concerned?” – that is an important question?

    it is the Chancellor who needs to be challenged about her migration problem – a problem that is affecting the German people adversely – the Chancellor speaks more like a politician than a leader – unlike our President who is a true leader – respect is earned Ms. Chancellor, not given –

    President Trump invited you here to speak about two countries – Germany and the USA – he is not interested in your position as a globalist nor your globalist views – he wants to do what is best for both the German and American people in trade agreements – the EU is inconsequential – get with the program Ms. Chancellor – we are not interested in your global grab for power – period

        Interesting point, but if we’re honest we must admit that western men have a superficial view of what beauty really is. We tend to base our view on things of far less substance than even western men of generations ago. When it comes down to it, when we all get old (and we all will get gray hair, or lose our hair, gain weight or lose weight, get wrinkles, and on and on) all that matters is the kind of person someone is. The heart matters more than appearance and that’s something western men have forgotten.

        When my parents were old and had been married almost 60 years my father had Alzheimers and he didn’t even know me. I stood by my mother’s bedside with him as she died. She had suffered many years (over 2 decades) and there was little left of either of them. But after she died I sat with him later in the day trying console him. He said that he was glad she died first because the two of them were one and whoever died last would be lonely and he’d never want her to be lonely. Even through the fog of his Alzheimers his commitment to her was rock solid and he wanted her to never go through loneliness. I realized that what matters was a person’s heart and that’s where true beauty or true ugliness is.

Young people age 16 are usually ready to begin entry-level job training leading to skills, respect, income and responsible entry into adulthood. There are many more work possibilities than just fast-food entry level jobs! Germany’s industries benefit from their educational system of apprenticeships (and so do their young people)

      The Bundestag separates students at age 16. Some go to college and some go to Voch-Tech – version 2.0. It’s a good plan. I’ve been screaming about it for 30 years.

        We did the same thing in the US for many years.
        It was lost somewhere in the 60’s…. one reason, young men were either in college or Viet Nam. Later on in the 70’s it was so easy to get through college everyone went whether they were qualified or not. It was at that time the unemployment lines were stacked with college grads looking for any kind of work..

          Yup. Remember my mother talking about this when I was a kid.

          In fact, we still had a Vo-Tech HS in the town I grew up in. A hold-over.

          It was a great idea.

          As a HS teacher, I felt bad for kids who clearly were not able to use and develop the incredible skills and interest they had in stuff beyond history, english, etc. Just because there was no where for them to go and develop these skills further.

        Compulsory schooling (Grundschule) ends after 8th grade, I think.

        From there, kids can go to work-study in the trades as an apprentice, go to mid-level schooling until 10th grade (Realschule) and then are placed into technical schools or business internships for mid-level positions or they are placed in the College bound (Gymnasium) track. The decision (done by the teachers) on who goes into the university track is done after the 6th grade, I think.

        Gymnasium goes to the 13th grade and need to pass exit exams (Arbitur) to be eligible for a placement at a university. For the most part, students are put into a university relative to their performance on exit exams, with the higher achieving students getting preference for universities of their own choosing.

        It’s a good system, by and large, although it is constrictive, with kids having to decide early what they choose to study. Changing majors, moving from mid-level schooling to college placement, etc. can be done, but it is clunky.

        The system is also tied into to German industrial needs more than the US system, I would say, in the sense that a lot of curriculum is determined by future industrial needs.

        The system was very good for one of my kids (because of school choice) as this one had to maneuver through the different systems for an arbitur in an English language school.

        Not so for the others who were much better off in the US system that was less constrictive and allowed them to get the experience and connections to move into more elite schooling opportunities.

      Merkel is a product of East Germany and the European Union. She’s never known full freedom and a sovereign unified Germany. She doesn’t even understand the concept. Her childhood home of East Germany (her family moved there from the West when she was a child) was part of the greater Soviet bloc, taking orders from Moscow, and her adult home of Germany takes its orders from Brussels.

      So like an old spinster scowling at a happy married couple, she sees true freedom, national pride, and national sovereignty and despises it, because she never had it.

    Merkel is vulnerable, seriously vulnerable. Germany will soon be looking at making a bilateral agreement.

    Trump was happy. Merkel was a fly in the parlor and knew it.

    Russia has significantly reduced its defense budget. Smart given Trump needs Russia and Trump is no longer trying to take out Assad, Hillary’s Globalist regime change, to make way for Saudi-Qatar oil market killing pipeline through Syria. That pipeline would have killed Russian oil revenue.

Rather than continue a culture with the same standard of living, which makes corps rich somewhere, or whether to renegotiate what it means to live in a country without bringing in foreigners and to rethink the “system” is what needed to happen before any population manipulation occurred.

          Maybe that means a return to sustenance farming. But a discussion of the citizens of the country is warranted.

          President Trump traveled the country having these discussions with us.

          It may be that we accept a lower standard of living and return government to its original intent.

            The only way to reverse that trend, would be to place a ban on women working and if necessary subsidise the income of the one person breadwinner. The lowering of relative wealth is a given for at least 50 years, but the result would be a stronger and more balanced population, prepared to work for the Country and not their own selfish interests.

            I do not speak of socialism where the government pays from cradle to grave, but the reduction of government to a very small governing institution that looked after only defence and the upkeep of the law. If taxes could be lowered to less than 5% to maintain the government, then the rebirth of democracy would rely on the qualified vote, as in only taxpayer’s would be given that privilege. The replacement of people from one culture with another is a recipe for disaster and I believe there is no rational argument against that result.

They already had 5 million Turks living in Germany and inviting more Moslems is suicidal for a country of 85 million people. We all remember what’s happened in Serbian Kosovo, Muslim Albanians became a majority in Serbian province by virtue of having 7-10 kids per family and with the military help of Western countries including Germany took over the province and declared independence.

    To be brutally honest here, when Merkel speaks out of one side of her mouth about “free movement within the EU” for any and all “EU citizens” (I’ll not comment further on those), she is speaking of a fairly benign movement of vetted European people who have established identities. What she didn’t say was that once radical Muslim refugees get through certain weak points in their entry to EU nations, THEN they are free to move about, to their eventual targets.

    In speaking of multiculturalism, it’s easy to speak of Europeans who by and large are Christian, Jewish, and perhaps some Muslims who have lived benignly in Europe for generations. What they don’t say is that THEIR actual multiculturalism is a “shock treatment” to Europe, bringing in millions of persons who are very incompatible with European people’s traditional values going back centuries. And that’s how you kill a nation and its culture, with such “shock treatments”.

That was great how President Trump shut that lying EU reporter down after she falsely accused and interjected her “Trump is an isolationist” meme in regards to trade in her question and then she framed another one of her questions around “fake news.” President Trump set her straight that he is NOT an isolationist and that is an example of FAKE NEWS.

    Seeing German industrial leaders with the President reminds me of a story that I usually save for my grandson.

    The company buys the latest high tech machine for the production line from Germany. Highly engineered and the latest in 90s computer assistance. All production managers had to come in for a week worth of training from the German team. Their structure and adherence to process was annoyingly robotic.

    As the week wore on we managers watched, learned, and collaborated. When we were allowed to go hands on we gradually started tweaking, experimenting, and doing trial and error to the process. I don’t understand German but what they were saying sounded like we were blasphemous and reckless Cowboys. Where they were poor mouthing at first at the time of their departure they were taking VHS tapes of us to use back home for further evaluation. We had gotten the machine from a cold start to full production in half the time with half of the start up scrap of bad product.

    They learned and saw what American ingenuity was all about. We learned they liked our steaks and hated our beer.

          I went to look for more info. Some chemical agents preserve the foam head head on beer. This link lists sulfur dioxide and formaldehyde (among other things). Not everyone would react to this, but I can see where a subset of the population would get horribly hung over as you (and my German friend) described: http://www.buzzle.com/articles/preservatives-in-beer.html

          “Other preservatives that may be present in your beer are:

          Citric acid
          Sorbic acid
          Ethyl para-hydroxybenzoate
          Propylparaben
          Methyl parahydroxybenzoate

          Besides extending the shelf life of beer, some additives are also used as foam stabilizers. A simple experiment can enable you to decide if your beer contains foam stabilizers or not. Take a clean beer mug and add a drop of milk to it. Now pour your favorite beer in this beer mug. If the foam at top disappears within second, it indicates that no foam stabilizers are present in your beer. On the other hand, if the foam refuses to die even after a minute, be sure that your beer has been laced with preservatives.”
