Angela Merkel Political Allies Crushed in Bavarian Election…

In yet another example of voters rejecting the mass-immigration and suicidal pro-jihad policies of German Chancellor Angela Merkel, Bavarian voters delivered the most crushing defeat to her aligned political allies since 1950.

The Christian Socialist Union (CSU) lost more than 10% of their previous support; and their closest allies, the Socialist Democrats (SPD) also lost 10% of their base.   The Alternative for Germany (AfD), a party focused on stopping the pro-jihad policies of Merkel, gained a strong foothold; and the Green Party became a landing place for those ‘tweeners’ who do not wish to be argumentative, yet disagree with Merkel’s political allies who accept a few Bavarian deaths as necessary to advance multicultural sensibilities.

[ie. Green Party gains = those who no longer support Germany’s rush to self destructive jihad, but also don’t want to run the gauntlet of being called racist within the AfD.]

BERLIN/MUNICH (Reuters) – Chancellor Angela Merkel’s Bavarian allies suffered their worst election result since 1950 on Sunday, bleeding votes to the far-right and the ecologist Greens in a setback that raised tensions within Germany’s crisis-prone national government.

The Christian Social Union (CSU) won 37.3 percent of the vote, preliminary results showed, losing its absolute majority for only the second time since 1962 – an outcome sure to stoke infighting in the conservative party, already a difficult partner for Merkel in Berlin.

“Of course today is not an easy day for the CSU. We did not achieve a good result,” Bavarian premier Markus Soeder told a gathering of his party. “We accept the result with humility,” he said, adding that the CSU nonetheless wanted to form a stable government as soon as possible.

The result, which saw the pro-immigration Greens come second and the far-right Alternative for Germany (AfD) enter the state assembly for the first time, means the CSU will need to form a coalition – a humiliation for a party used to ruling alone. (read more)

              Or not, we will not know for sure until all the 50,000+ sealed indictments are unsealed.

              The clock on the STATUTE of LIMITATIONS STOPS with an indictment.

              […]The phrase “statute of limitations” refers to the time period within which formal criminal charges must be brought after a crime has been committed…. Therefore, in most instances, prosecutions are barred if the defendant can show that there was no indictment or other formal charge filed within the time period dictated by the statute of limitations….

              The statute of limitations runs until an indictment or information is found and returned to the court […] https://fas.org/sgp/crs/misc/RL31253.pdf

              How many sealed indictments are normal per year? 1,077 per a 2009 report.

              So I will wait until CONSERVATIVE Federal Prosecutors and Judges are appointed and all those sealed indictments are unsealed before I go hair on fire screaming about Jeff Sessions.

          Reuters is wrong, however, in classifying the AfD as “far right”. They occupy the spot in the political spectrum that the CDU abandoned when Merkel was “installed” by the globalists (one might say she is our Obama), and the entire political spectrum moved to the left. The CSU is a sister party to the CDU, but hasn’t moved as far left as the CDU has. Complicating the mix in Bayern is the fact that the Freier Wähler (Independent Conservatives) are also conservative, and many of those votes would have gone to the AfD. The elections in two weeks in Hessen should be interesting indeed…

        They’ve only been at it for FIVE years, and this is the first State election they’ve been in. Not bad for a first go. Moreover, the AfD are rapidly gaining ground in every state legislature throughout Germany, which is basically the only way they can tip the scales and get rid of people like Merkel, who are NOT elected directly, but SELECTED by the members of the winning coalition. Get enough AfD’lers in there, and they HAVE to listen.

        Btw, CSU is Christian Social Union, NOT socialist. They have been Christian since the start, and have become a sister party to the CDU (being Bayern-only, “thanks” to Schröder). There was talk of them going national again, but this election has probably quashed that. One thing to remember is the biggest loser is the SPD (who ARE socialists, indeed Marxists), whose voters moved to the Greens. The YSM here are portraying it as a HUGE gain for the Greens, but it’s only a WalkAway from the SPD to the Greens sort of thing.

        There are elections coming up in Hessen in two weeks which should be interesting, and better for the AfD, as the “Freier Wähler” (Independent Conservatives) don’t exist outside of Bayern, making it easier for the AfD to pick up conservative voters.

        That is the truth! Once the Muslim population reaches 16%, they will eventually become the majority in a country. Germany 🇩🇪 is truly running out of time. They have done this to themselves. They invited the invaders in with open arms. She is trying to pay them to leave but they aren’t going anywhere. Their goal is clear as day. To eventually take over Germany 🇩🇪.

        Our President has to get our troops out of Germany 🇩🇪 and into Poland 🇵🇱. The Poles and other Eastern European countries need to drop the European Union 🇪🇺 and create their own block. The Italians may be the only Western European country allowed to join them. That depends on how successful they are in driving out the 500K invaders. Time will tell for them.

        Regrettably, our grandkids and great grandkids will be asked to defend the Eastern European block when the Muslims become the majority in most of Western Europe. I won’t be around but I will be praying for them as I look down from heaven.

          WE didn’t invite the refauxgees. The globalist puppet Merkel did. And only by building a base in the legislatures to supply enough legislative votes and power to push out Merkel can we be rid of her, as the Kanzler/in is NOT directly elected.

          There are elections in Hessen in two weeks. If the CDU loses voters there (and they go to the AfD), Merde-kel may well be toast. She’s crafty and ruthless, but even she has her limits.

            The “Gastarbeiter(n)” were brought in from Italy, Greece, Turkey, Spain, Asia(!), and other countries nearby. Of all these groups, whose progeny are now into their third or fourth generation. Actually the deal with Turkey was cut in 1961. As with the DEMONcRATs, the terms have been redefined, and they’re now termed immigrants…

            Of ALL of these, only the Turks have not integrated; indeed the second and later generations consider themselves primarily Turks, and peripherally Germans (though we idiot Germans are basically paying their bills). The Spaniards, Italians, Greeks, and Asians (to some extent) are more German than Germans, some would say.

            Another ill-conceived notion comes back to bite us. The descendants of Gastarbeitern in Hamburg, Berlin, and other large cities in the North and Northwest (NRW) have become the large “Familien” or clans, who often square off against each other and/or the biker groups, often in hundreds at a time.

            It is not unusual anymore for a traffic stop to be made, and shortly thereafter 10 or 20 “family members” show up, and before long, a few hundred more. Police often won’t do a stop without three or more backups on call, if not directly available. And our police are UNDEREQUIPPED, UNDERPAID, UNDERTRAINED, UNDERSTAFFED, and most of all, UNDERAPPRECIATED.

            I guess I could say, Green Lives Matter… It’s tragic. Political Correctness and globalism is killing off our civilization, indeed our Judeo-Christian civilization, which, for the third time, is threatened by the animals from the south.

          You need to take VoE with a few grains of salt. We’re not all dead yet. And Merde-kel is struggling, at best. Wait until after the elections in Hessen (end of this month) to see what shakes out there… This whole thing takes time, and short of a revolution (which is what Satan Soros wants), it takes a while.

          What astonishes me is how folks have forgotten history (or maybe they didn’t…). The Moslems have overrun Europe twice before, and each time it took HUNDREDS of years to get rid of them. The only solution is to never let them in, and never let them have a foothold. And despite all the political correctness it IS a religious war, with the added point that the Moslems’ religion controls EACH and EVERY aspect of their lives; from the minute they get up, to the minute they go to bed (indeed, someone said that even what they should dream about is proscribed). How they live, what they eat, how to eat it, what to wear, what to think: EVERYTHING.

          And they want US to follow THEIR rules, too… ca. sixth century “civilization”…

          Remember Ismael, who would be like a Donkey (hmm – DEMONcRAT Donkey?)… causing trouble (and his descendants as well) everywhere he went, with everyone he met, even amongst his own people…

          But, it looks like Italy is turning, Greece wants to, the former Eastern Europe (ironic, eh?) is shutting their proverbial doors, and we in the middle (unwillingly) are gradually getting fed up. We need some time, some patience, and a LOT of PRAYER.

        Angela Merkel‘s parents were from West Germany, and she was born in Hamburg. They moved to East Germany when she was a child (of course, very few people moved in that direction, many more from East Germany to West Germany). So, on one hand, one can think that they must have had unusually strong sympathies for the communist system. On the other hand, Angela Merkel‘s father was a Lutheran pastor, and a part of their motivation may have been to strengthen Christianity in Eastern Germany, which was, of course, disfavored by the government there.

        If they instead expected newcomers to follow accepted German laws and norms of behavior, etc., there really wouldn”t be a problem.

        Plus, that sh*t makes it very difficult for Muslims who immigrated years ago and DID integrate into German society.

        Same problem up in Canada for Muslims who immigrated to Canada in order to escape repressive cultures….and now Canada is betraying them by allowing the same crap they tried to get away from.

      Let all people of decency who have been accustomed unjustly to wage private battles against other people of Western Civilization now all unite and go against the Mohammedans in a Holy Crusade and end with total victory this war against monstrous evil which should have been completed long ago.

      Let those who for too long a time have been dhimmis, now become knights. Let those who have been fighting in service of Mohammedans against their own Christian brothers and sisters and Jewish cousins now fight in a proper way against all the followers of the blood thirsty misanthrope sub-animal pedophile rapist demon. Let those who have been wearing themselves out in both body and soul in vain attempt to win the small minds and dark hearts of the Mohammedans now labor for glorious honor against them.

      Behold! On the one side will be the completely destroyed Mohammedans, on the other the fierce and righteous protectors of humanity. On the one side will be the destroyed enemies of the Lord, on the other, his friends who will shout at all the Mohammedans and their enablers as they destroy them, “Deus vult! Deus vult! Deus vult!”

      Germany has not had an “absolute Mehrheit” (veto-proof majority with one party) since the 1930s, except for a brief period of a week or so in the 1950s. The fears of a takeover like Hitler did, and runaway inflation (as happened between WWI an WWII) live on in the German psyche even though the folks who actually saw and lived through it are (mostly) no longer here.

      The backroom negotiations that produce the Kanzler/in make the Mafiosi look like nursery-school children. Only by filling up the state legislatures (which select the upper house, much like we used to do many years ago), and by gaining seats in the lower house (Bundestag), can enough pressure and votes be applied to insure a MGGA result.

      Sad to think that the SJWs and YSM (and Godwin’s law, in a sense) has made the concept of a great Germany to be anathema to most Germans: but that is gradually changing (hence the AfD)…

Thus the left usually moved there, producing a vast amount of beatniks, hippies and wierd cultists in the Western half, while the cold, dark and sullen East Berliners did their thing.

      The first thing to realize is the German media is even more fake news than the US media, moreover it’s controlled by Merkel and her AgitProp crew. Objective analysis is hard to find, especially as the CSU picks up the pieces and cobbles together a coalition.

      The fact that the Greens are second-largest (but barely more than HALF AS BIG as the CSU) is more a testament to the utter failure of Nahles and the SPD than the “success” of the Greens. One need only look at Baden-Württemberg to see the utter destruction the Greens can wreak upon a state: the Schools, the Police, the infrastructure, even electricity is not as stable as it once was, which is a HUGE problem for industry (OK, for everybody).

    6 And the LORD said, Behold, the people is one, and they have all one language; and this they begin to do: and now nothing will be restrained from them, which they have imagined to do.

    7 Go to, let us go down, and there confound their language, that they may not understand one another’s speech.
    8 So the LORD scattered them abroad from thence upon the face of all the earth: and they left off to build the city.

The SPD’lers went over to the Greens, so not much of a change there, but the YSM are spinning it as the greatest thing since sliced bread. The far left (Die Linke) is still beneath 5% (so they don’t get any seats), and the Greens and SPD together have no chance to build any sort of a coalition, as the rest of the parties are varying degrees of conservative.

    Your analysis of die Grünen is way off the mark. They are rabid, leftwing extremists. Many of the people who voted SPD last time voted for the Grünen this time around. I watched one of their leaders being interviewed during the campaign. She was demonising as neo-nazis the people who protested peacefully in Chemnitz against the rising criminality following the fatal stabbing of a German by a gang of immigrants there. There is a significant division in Germany between the West and the East. Had this local election (Germany has 16 Länder) been held in the East the AfD would have easily cleared 25 percent, perhaps more. Many East Germans are comparing their government with the SED government and accuse them of using the same tactics. Trust me the German MSM has been hijacked by the extreme left. You think CNN is bad, the German MSM is far, far worse.
    What we are experiencing across the entire west is on the one hand those who respect the rule of law (AfD, Republicans) and those who don’t (Democrats,die AltParteien). The Altparteien are the legacy parties and include practically all parties in Germany except the AfD.

There are the smaller, alternative outlets, e.g. http://www.ungefreiheit.de that are steadfastly conservative, but are far smaller than the YSM outlets.

      I expect that the election in Hessen (without the extra conservative party, the Freier Wähler) will show what the AfD can do. I can only hope and pray. As the different state elections occur, the AfD gains seats, which, at the moment, is the most powerful thing they can do outside of campaigns to win the hearts and minds of voters (a la MAGA)…
