In "Watershed Moment" Merkel Says Germany Can No Longer Rely On America

Tyler Durden's picture

One day after Donald Trump infuriated Angela Merkel and the rest of his G-7 peers, when the US president refused to endorse the Paris climate treaty, prompting the German chancellor to say  that “the whole discussion about climate has been difficult, or rather very unsatisfactory... here we have the situation that six members, or even seven if you want to add the EU, stand against one", Germany's prime minister made what many have dubbed, an "era-defining" statement.

Speaking at a CDU election rally in Munich, Merkel said that Europe "must take its fate into its own hands" or as the AFP put it, "Merkel warns US, Britain no longer reliable partners."

Faced with a western alliance divided by Brexit and Donald Trump's presidency, Merkel said "die zeiten, in denen wir uns auf andere völlig verlassen konnten, sind ein Stück vorbei", or loosely translated "the times in which we could completely depend on others are on the way out" and added that "I've experienced that in the last few days."

Merkel then said that while Germany and Europe would strive to remain on good terms with America and Britain, "we have to fight for our own destiny" and she also said that special emphasis was needed on warm relations between Berlin and newly-elected French President Emmanuel Macron.

Her comments came after Trump said during the G-7 meeting he needed more time to decide if the US would continue backing the Paris climate deal, which has frustrated European diplomats. A subseqent report by Axios, Trump privately told multiple people, including EPA Administrator Scott Pruitt, that "he plans to leave the Paris agreement on climate change" which will likely further infurate his European allies.

During his trip, Trump also echoed his past criticism of NATO allies for failing to meet the defensive alliance's military spending commitment of two percent of GDP.

Observers noted that he neglected to publicly endorse the pact's Article Five, which guarantees that member countries will aid the others they are attacked. The omission was especially striking as he unveiled a memorial to the September 11, 2001 terrorist attacks against the US, the only time the mutual defense clause has been triggered.

On Friday, Trump also described German trade practices as "bad, very bad," in Brussels talks last week, complaining that Europe's largest economy sells too many cars to the US.

Reactions to Merkel's striking comment came pouring in from the likes of Edward Snowden who called her speech an "era-defining moment":

... the president of the Council on Foreign Relations. Richard Haass, who called it a "watershed moment"

... the editor of the Financial Times, calling it a"big moment in transatlantic relations"

... and many others:

In short, it seems that the time for a New-er World Order may be at hand, and many are not too happy.

Germany has so many muslim "doctors, lawyers and engineers" that it no longer needs to rely on the USA taxpayers to support their rapefugeee folly.

Exactly like Hillary's DNC tantrum when Obama surged to the front.

Merkel and Macron are drowning twins, clutching each other as they sink into the limitless depths of EBC fiat credit-debt and an uncontrolled jihadi immigration, paying with their blood and treasure the price that USA should have paid, as the Supreme Luciferian Satanist Crusader. Our time will come. Heads on pikes on the tollways. Weeping and wailing and gnashing of teeth.

Fuch Germany,looks like we're going to have to save europe again but this time from the satanic pedophiles.

we should start by ridding the US of the ones that run it. and who says we "saved" Europe the last time- if you have not noticed any time the US "saves" a country it ends up way more fucked up than before. "We fought the wrong side"- General George Patton.

As someone who lives in Germany, married a German and am quite familiar with German culture from the inside ... I can tell you in the next ten years Germany will either "become Great Again" or it will cease to exist.

Why?  What will trigger either event?

Poverty.  Germans don't do well with poverty.  

When this financial system collapses the German "quality of life" will evaporate quickly. 

Then thereafter this society will decide where to go from here?  

Save the welfare state or kill it?  

Saving the welfare state when everyone is poor including the government means state managed factors of production, the other choice is freedom.

Something else to consider - when everyone is poor, including the government, they are going to get pretty resentful at seeing precious resources go towards foreign squatters. As I said above, that would get bloody, quick.

I think a part of this determination we see from Merkel now is because the support for globalism and the EU project is fading.

Britain is on her way out, USA is not aligned with the globalists and makes independent decisions, and the few victories the project has managed to squeeze out are weak.


I guess they will try to put some serious effort into inflating Merkel and relying on her to be the supreme leader of the EU.

Something like this


Another shot of Merkel, trying on her new mantle.

Eventuually we will all have to choose freedom. Everything else will have been tried and produced awful results/not worked. But we are going to have to go through some rough times before enough people reach this conclusion.

Hitler was created in the Trenches. There is no equivalent of any such schoolyard today.

Hitler was ruthless in establishing a socialist state

 He printed his own money.

Do you remember hotpot Wodensday? Every family had to make a pot of stewv to help feed the hungry.

Women were encouraged to have babies. They had to contribute to the tribe.

Don't let these sanctimonious wannabe cowboys intimidate you. They are pure hot air

 The Bully of the world hasn't won a war for a long time.He cannot suppress the Iraqis, nor the Afghans who run around all day in their nightshirts.He blusters and farts but He and I know that there is an enemy so vastly superior to him, that his only defence is wilful blindness

And if we are defeated, may the Ice Giants of Ragnarok grind Germany back to bedrock.

The demons want it to be that you say Jesus was Jew.  Even though he was not from the genetical tribe of Turkey.  Even though being semitic he probably didn't have blue eyes like they show you in pictures as he was our brother Shem not Japath, in fact as the scriptures state he wasn't physically attractive but rather his beauty was the spirit within that he brought to the world.  I'm sure his spiritual body is beautiful like the spirit inside now as our Lord so who knows what he looks like now.  Jew is from the french world liu it's origin a French slang for the studies of Judahites.  Funny how the converts to Hebrew that Jesus called the twice the bastards of hell as the original Pharisee teachers are now supposed to be Jesus's people?  Even though he threw off the money hungry Pharisees?  Even though his father wiped out the Pharisees in 70 AD, man, woman, and child.  We are supposed to cling to some out dated idea that Jews are God's chosen people?  Please, it's disgusting.  Jesus would never endorse the Talmud promoting it's right as a Turkish people being your Master race.  He'd never advocate that a believer of his Father would have the right to steal, kill, rape for being of his selected genetical bounds.  Jesus's Father opened up the wedding ceremony for all those who wanted to attend, because the original Pharisees were too busy attending a funeral (their own). 


But nevertheless the demons want you to worship their idols called "Jews" or hate their holy people "Jews" so that if you think I hate "Jews" I must hate Christ for being a "Jew".  In fact you shouldn't even hate anyone, being realistic about the way a people work or hating their ways is acceptable but we are to love our enemies even if we have to depose them.  And that is how they turn many ignorant against their own savior and against their own champion of the righteousness of his Father the God we all know believes in justice.  HItler was one of those ignorant fools that turned his back on Chirsitianity instead of studying who "jews" really were he threw out the baby with the bathwater just like the demon filled "Jews" wanted him to.  Hence he too became like them an Antichrist. And the destruction he wrought on as an Antichrist was from a demonic view very much conspired as the final act to nail the coffin lid on anyone who dare rise against he fake master race.  Clever serpents and they have many deceived and scared now that going against the "Jews" is going against Christ.  You people are gong to have to be smarter than the Germans in WWII.  It's not good enough to recognize a bad deal you have to be able to sort out the bad actors by testing the fruits involved.  You're going to have to cling to the appointed Lord the one Shem rejected , the one your relatives as in Japath accepted as their own just as Noah predicted you would.  You're going to have to fight these demonic and twisted Jews with the truth.  And you're going to win then.

And BTW as Noah said that Japath would be sitting in the tent of Shem, we are in fact as followers of the Lord they rejected sitting in their tent.  But there are those of our brothers Japath (Turkish Antichrists called Jews) that are also sitting in the tent of Shem but illegally.  When we call out to our Lord and his legality and ask his Father to enforce his covenant with us then these fake Antichrists are going to be deposed from the tent.  They have no right being there, none and they know it. How could they think being of the the Synagog of Satan (Rev 3:9) as in advocating lying, cheating, raping and even murder of nonbelievers would qualify them as anything other than the Devil's own.  They'd better repent now because the rest of Japath's eyes are being awoken and when we bind to our Lord and his Father and see the truth and gather together then all that will be left of these imposters is the likeness of their Pharisee bosses of 70AD.  If the original Pharisee bloodline that rejected Jesus in 70AD were destroyed, how well do these imposters think they will do?

It appears that Germany almost had the right idea last time in recognizing Mystery Babylon and the Turkish Antichrists as the problem, though the occult methodology and fascist implementation totally wrong.  We have to give Germans half the credit they deserve, but it appears that genetical neutering ordered in by the Jews has totally did its intention of making Germany feminized.  They even elect in female GermanaJews (assuming the elections are real) as their leaders. I suppose it didn't help that the best, brightest, most motivated, and probably the most agressive men got annihilated either.  Or that few rebellious school boy males were probably whipped by sadistic Jezebels into reciting how aweful they were for the awful things they did in WWII.  Truth is that Hitler was a half Jewish madman and instead of using their anger properly to address the problem the Germans were taken advantage of by the Jews to set the world stage for final Mystery Babylonian world domination.  Now Ironically the birthplace of Jewish cradle of Christian destruction as in Russia is going to be the last holdout that resets Mystery Babylons whole efforts.  Sadly, Hitler rode the wave of the realistic contempt the people had for the Talmuds for wiping out their entire existence and made something of a monster out of it so that everyone that followed along nicely with the banker rip off got wiped off the earth. 

Sometimes a person kind of wonders with Rockefellers supporting HItler and such if it was part of the design.  So they could all play oppressed victim as they continue their Talmudic victimization and parasitical nature of their hosts.  Now Europe is totally in a straight jacket, they can't even speak their mind about their opressors without going to jail due to the 6 million Jews that supposedly died but they can't find the graves or ashes.  But on the other hand we have 60+ million of Russian Christians that were slaughtered by the Jewish Bolshevist prior to Hitler and not even a wimper is heard in our press.  So in essence the big mouths in U.S. were silenced years ago, and I suspect that eventually freedom of speech here will also be curtailed with "tolerance" laws.  In fact they probably have plans for people like you and me being their next catalyst for that happening.  Grandchildren of the devil being Turkish Antichrists.  And RIP Germany, to which I have much genetics to thank.

A start would be to get rid of the CIA-controlled BND and media. They work for a foreign power, not Germany.

Strange view. In 1943, the UK military Chief of Staff declared the USSR was the next enemy. By then, the US and UK had stopped sharing German military intelligence with their ostensible ally, the USSR. The US dropped nukes on Japan to show the USSR who was boss. The US took high level Nazis to safety in the US instead of putting them up for trial at Nuremberg. It also game amnesty to Japanese CW/BW experts in exchange for their knowledge. These CW/BW experts had conducted experiments on humans, including Americans and Russians. The Russians wanted them tried in the war crimes tribunal in Tokyo, but the US stalled until the amnesty was established. The Russians resorted to their own trial in which damning evidence of the atrocities was revealed. The US/UK claimed this was just propaganda. The Soviets were fully aware of the US/UK intent against them.

It is purely coincidental that the US is even now encircling Russia with BW labs (2 in Ukraine, 1 in Khazakstan, others elsewhere).

Nazis to safety in the US instead of putting them up for trial at Nuremberg

Nuremberg had nothing to do with truth, justice or honour. It was an exercise in humiliation and rationalizations for the atrocities that the allies committed.

Pure theatre.

Confessions were extracted by sleep deprivations and threats to family.

The entire episode is a blot against our ancestors.

Why do you think they killed Hess a day before his release? To stop him from telling Germany's side of the story.

I turn my back upon anyone regurgitating the lies of this most shameful episode.

Churchill was well on his way to becoming a vagabond after losing the family estate in the 1923 crash.

The Rothschilds bailed him out. He was baught and paid for. His job was to drag a very reluctant Empire into the war to bring Germany to heel. Hitler was printing his own money.

Of cause the Rothschild bankers told Churchill how to partician Eurasia.

No need for Baron R. to get involved. He was having breakfast in bed.

Now you know why Churchill was inebriated the entire war.

We could only be so lucky ... you white people in the U.S. with German/Prussian ancestry would love a ethno-state when the race war in the U.S. finally kicks off.  

White people are only 51% of the U.S. population and some 43% of people under the age of 12.  U.S. is more fucked that Europe is.

But the white people here outside the pussy-farmed coastal cities (where most of the so-called people of color live) are well trained and comfortable with their massive amount of stockpiled arms. Unlike Europe where people rely completely on the state for their protection, having given up any means to protect themselves to achieve their so-called socialist paradise, rural and small town people here are prepared and ready to fight to protect themselves, and are not very afraid of the 5'10" 130-lb gender-confused "victim" men from the big cities. Big difference.

There is no empathy amongst whites for themselves. They grovel and squirm at the slightest hint of a guilt trip.

It is so disgusting to watch. 

No one else believes a word of this guilt tripping, but they are quite willing to take advantage of it to escape their own people and harvest the fruits of our civilization.

Like baboons raiding a farmers maize field, they despoil the very civilization that they raid.
