Angela Merkel Warns Russia May Interfere In German Election Next

Tyler Durden's picture

It appears it's not just the US voting system that has been allegedly penetrated by Vladimir Putin (at least if Trump is winning). German Chancellor Angela Merkel said on Tuesday that Russia could try to influence Germany's general elections next year through cyber attacks or disinformation campaigns, following similar accusations by Washington, which also accused the Kremlin of meddling in the US vote.

Germans are scheduled to go to the polls in September 2017. Merkel has yet to announce her candidacy but is widely expected to run for a fourth term.


Merkel warns of possible Russian interference in German vote

It is unclear if Merkel's warning suggests that confidential German emails have also been hacked and are about to be released. 

"We are already, even now, having to deal with information out of Russia or with internet attacks that are of Russian origin or with news which sows false information," Merkel, said at a press conference alongside Norwegian Prime Minister Erna Solberg. Dealing with that was already "a daily task", she told reporters in Berlin.

"So it may be that this could also play a role during the election campaign." That, or perhaps what Merkel is more concerned about is her collapse in the polls as a result of her hugely unpopular "open door" policy which has allowed approximately 1 million middle-eastern refugees to enter the country, much to the displeasure of her countrymen.

The comments, first reported by AFP, came in response to a question about whether Germany could experience the type of cyber attacks that have plagued the White House race, notably targeting Hillary Clinton's Democratic party.

Germany's domestic secret service earlier this year accused Russia of a series of international cyber spying and sabotage attacks, including a case which targeted the German lower house of parliament last year.

Washington last month formally accused the Russian government of trying
to "interfere" in the election by hacking US political institutions,
charges the Kremlin has repeatedly dismissed. US intelligence services have yet to present any evidence of Russian involvement.

You can hear the drum beat getting louder every day.  This sounds an awful like like the buildup to Gulf War II.  

We're going to try this third world crap with Russia, a nuclear power?  This is insane.

Hey Angela,

Maybe one day if we're lucky, after enough "the Russians are coming" the Russians will actually end up coming.

All the fascists sing the same song these days:

THE RUSSIANS DID IT, THE RUSSIANS DID IT

Fucking stupid Merkel, destroying Germany, leading the world to nuclear war.

What the FUCK do these people think?  The Russians will not destroy them because they are afraid?

Germany has 80 cities with populations of greater than 100,000

8 Russian SS-18s, which each carry 10 800-kiloton warheads, will turn them all to ashes

On an average day, the detonation of One warhead will ignite fires over a surface area of 152 square miles (389 square kilometers) see http://thebulletin.org/what-would-happen-if-800-kiloton-nuclear-warhead-...

After that, the Russians have another 992 launch-ready warheads they will send our way.

Angela is as fucked-up as Killary. And as un-fuckable. Only question remaining: were Billiboy and Angie's 'man' too weak to please them. Or are those disgraces of a woman simply not interested in men anyway?

"...Russia May Interfere In German Election Next....", yeah, and? 

Would anyone aside from Soros and other satan worshipers mind?  Like someone here said before, it's time to flush the toilet !

Soros has already spent over $100 million bringing rapefugees into germany and millions influencing the USA elections. Odd she doesn't mention Soros? Neither does Hillary, another Soros-backed puppet.

The revised Russian military doctrine is pretty clear in that the Russians will respond massively if attacked. So they are insane as Putin will defend Russia. That is given as he is not ambiguous like the tossers in the West.

She's not very creative, in her lat campaign, her motto was "Yes We Can" - if it works, lets use it, right?

Amerikans and Germans have a lot in common.

Better close the borders before all those Russky savages come flooding in. They are the Horrible Hordes compared to the mild-mannered "doctors, lawyers, and engineers" from the middle east.

"The Russians are coming!"

I heard this Mantra for decades and the Russians never came.

I wouldn´t mind if they came today though.

The Rothschilds want to take Russia back like they did when they funded the Bolsheviks over 100 years ago and murdered 60+ million white Russian Christians.

 

Merkel like Hillary is another one of their stooges, this is all conditioning and propaganda to demonise Russia and to set the ball rolling for WWIII.

 

They should be smoked out by the citizens of the World and hung, drawn and quarterd - every last one of the bastards.

What for is Merkel trying to hedge her bets on her survival ? If Hitlary gets selected by hook or crook  she still would be embatteled

and have all the proxy hate thrown on to her locally. Germany is first down the vasall state food chain and made just to survive

at Americas behest. If Hitlary war party wins that vasall is up for nukes against a belligerent anti Russian policy that will have 

not a single German behind it : hence full mutiny against the status quo in Germany by tommorrow morning.

 

Hence I forgot, someone failed to explain to the Germans if elections would really change a thing... they`d be banned by tommorrow morning !

There ain`t no fool like an old fool or fooled before like in this democracy scam.

Vote for Hitlary, vote for war.

It's not an excuse, it's a setup. Brainwash the people to justify a war.

300,000 NATO soldiers have or are in the process of being moved near the Russian borders. US and Germany make the most of it.

coincidence?

Sudden Debt's picture

You should see how brainwashed the Europeans are...

I posted a few comments on the Trump and Hillary facebook page, and I even got phone calls of people saying "dude, other people see what you're saying, they'll hate you for it"

Almost every fucking moron here is like praying to Hillary and they know shit about her!

The media had gloryfied her so much and called Trump the devil so many times, they've got the entire population going for that fraud!

same thing here - I waschatting with my Oxford -educated English friends- all were extremely brainwashed, rabidly anti-Putin and pro-$hitlery.

 

TheGardener's picture

That cunt may see herself at the end of a rope by ways of treasonous alliances that served her good until they were not. Germans or for what the authochtonous remaining population is being called upon might take issue and act excuberantly on the really guilty one`s on all those lists.

What a freaking chance of anyone reported by what or whom for what ?  I hate quoting Brecht but they are just about electing a new populace

because the old one would not quite do the bidding.
