Talks Collapse – Germany’s Merkel To Announce: “Inability to Form Government”…

Interesting juxtaposition when you contrast the ‘impossible mandate‘ election results in Germany, against the ‘incredible mandate’ election results in Japan for Prime Minister Shinzo Abe.  It’s as if there’s something, well, almost divinely nationalist guiding it.

Things are challenging for Angela Merkel in Germany, and amid the reality we see just how entrenched the globalists are in their ideological demands for ‘open borders‘.

The issue of unfettered immigration has collapsed any hope for German Chancellor Angela Merkel to be able to form a government. Merkel’s Christian Democrat Union (CDU) party had hoped to form a coalition with the center-left Social Democrat (SPD) party and the pro-business Free Democrats (FDP) party.  However, the primary issues surrounding immigration, spending and climate change are so deeply divided no coalition is possible.

BERLIN (Reuters) – Chancellor Angela Merkel’s efforts to form a three-way coalition government that would secure herself a fourth term hit a major setback after a would-be coalition partner unexpectedly pulled out of talks, thrusting Germany into a political crisis.

Merkel, whose conservatives were weakened after an election they won with a reduced number of seats, said on Monday shortly after the pro-business Free Democrats (FDP) withdrew from the negotiations that she would inform the German president that she could not form a coalition.

The development left Germany with two unprecedented options in the post-World War Two era: Merkel forms a minority government with the Greens, or the president calls a new election after parties fail to form a government. (read more)

The Alternative for Germany (AfD) party campaigned on a platform surrounding limits or caps on immigration; and common sense toward border security.

It is widely believed Angela Merkel would not want another election out of fear the AfD could gain even more strength.   However, absent of a coalition, that only leaves the alternative option of trying to govern from a minority position.  If attempted, this would make Merkel the weakest governing authority in decades, and any policy advancement would be subject to blockage by the opposing parties.

Any attempt to govern from the minority position makes business investment into Germany subject to high volatility on any given issue.  Compounding the problem is Brexit, and the U.K. pulling out of the EU meaning Germany needs to fill the financial gap.

Top that off with Germany’s expressed goals to remain atop the climate change agenda, and Germany’s economic companies will find themselves at a competitive disadvantage from non-Paris Treaty manufacturing nations.

Perhaps lots of horrible, terrible, trouble ahead…

“It is a day of deep reflection on how to go forward in Germany,” a tired-looking Merkel told reporters. “As chancellor, I will do everything to ensure that this country is well managed in the difficult weeks to come.”

Funny how that works…

    I more or less agree with Deusvults characterisation of AfD:
    “Their former leader Frauke Petry is now independent as the AFD is a rather weak party and actual NAZIS and weirdos are getting more traction. It’s a party in chaos.
    It’s just a vehicle for people who have no other choice to protest vote.
    They have not enough traction in West Germany to get into more power.
    Needs a more centrist party lead by people like Petry that aims for tight borders and stopping of liberal policies. Such a party could actually replace Merkels CDU.”
    On top they have rather an obstructionistic no-agenda than ideas for a Make Germany Great Again-Agenda.
    And here we come to the real problem. I dared to write “Make Germany Great Again”, knowing, that it is rather impossible to write this in view of Germany’s history.
    So I also have to give credit to the AfD to be courgagious enough to do their work amidst being constantly called Nazi by the very active Antifa and the media and the other parties. (This is probably also one reason why they are weak,)
    But what I really want to share is, that I came through a process that is not finished to the conclusion, that Germany’s history is more complicated than NAZI. What did the late emperor Wilhelm want? Respect for an economically strong Germany. But the British had their agenda and Germany was defeated and crushed through Versailles. Again Germany wanted to be strong, but now it went to embrace totalitarism, the holocaust and and the next world war. My father was a soldier in this war from 1938 up to when he came back home in 1948. Now this army is being called a criminal organization (which it was not). How can we live, when our fathers had to go through this and never got any respect for it? My father was in the american camps of Remagen, Sinzig and Andernach and towards me was not even able to talk about this time and the horror he survived.
    So much for tonight, my prayer and hope is, that through all this change now, we will be able to heal this history.

      Sorry to hear about your dad. And yes, Germany has a huge problem: it seems like it is impossible for Germans to talk about a Make Germany Great Again without running in the Nazi period and all kinds of fake “antiFa” accussations ( “antiFa” being THE only fascist in the room..).

      Which, IMHO, was exactly when Germany was NOT great. It was great before and after but definitely not during the Third Reich nor in the last twenty years -or so. It seems like Germany has not fully recovered from the Soviet schism yet.

      At least you have a country. I was born in Catalunya, and as my american coworkers joke, I have no homeland anymore. Oh well.

      My concern is that history is repeating itself and we might see a Spanish Civil War driven by the intransigence of the EU, while the EU proper becomes a Fourth Reich controlled by commie lunatics like Merkel… at which point we may see another World War in Europe as the German EU takes on the UK and Eastern Europe.

      You dad spent three years in a POW camp… my uncles spent two in Franco’s. At least they all survived.

      Enough of the collective guilt. Germany’s constant need to atone for a relatively brief episode in German history is directly responsible for the insanity of Merkel’s immigration policy. And even worse, Germany has used its economic and political power within the EU to force this immigration insanity on other EU members.

      Africa’s population will double by 2050 while the EU led by Germany struggles with feelings of self-hatred and a declining population. There will not be a happy ending for Europe with that set of conditions. At least the Poles and the Hungarians have resisted the EU deathwish. I hope the Germans can overcome their war guilt and conditioning long enough to save their great country and culture.

    Merkel is the “conservative” in German Politics?

    God Help Germany.

    What next? A Reichstag fire? Herr Merkel stops shaving her mustache? A round up of all the Communists and other parties. Reich Chancellor Merkel takes over the EU in a lightning attack on Brussels, starts ruling by decree and declares the Fourth Reich?

      Not to mention pansies. It would appear that nobody in the CDU is willing to challenge Merkel. And the CSU leader Horst Seehofer quite obviously has a spine like soggy linguine.
