German Court Reverses Anti-'Nazi-Era' Military Restrictions

Tyler Durden's picture

Late on Friday, the BBC reported that the German military will in future be able to use its weapons on German streets in an extreme situation. This ruling, we hope purely a technicality - but clearly warranting some concern as to 'why now?' - by Germany's Constitutional Court, reverses some of the severe restriction on military deployments that were set down in the German constitution after Nazi-era abuses. After WWII, the new constitution ruled that soldiers could not be deployed with guns at the ready on German soil - the court has now changed that (it seems on the basis of terrorist concerns - as opposed to widespread bank runs, populist revolts at bailout-back-downs, or Hollande/Monti/Draghi sending over some boys).

You could not be more correct about the Non Pork Eaters.

In Canada and the U.S., most of our immigrant population at this point in time in history come from Mexico, Central and S. America.

In Europe, their immigrants come from the Middle East and N. Africa.

Germany itself is popular with Turks. Nice people an all, but their cultural baggage conflicts heavily with German society.

The French have it particularly bad. More than 40% of the voting population is of Algerian descent.

As for me, my heritage stretches back to the Slave Pits of Lithuania.

France is toast. Even now it burns. Their jizyah is too little too late.

Constitutions won't stop a bullet and they won't stop tyranny.

Since no one has a right to form a government, constitutions are ENABLERS of tyranny.

Just read a book called   "Hitler   Democrat."   by Genera; Leon Degrelle.     It could not be more fascinating and I think important.     Hitler was not very much like what we have been told.     What is happening to America now is exactly what happened to Germany - until Hitler took charge!    I really recommend that book.        It is available from American Free Press - or (or net or something.)      We do not need to be ignorant of history.    Actually, it is urgent that we really do know the truth.    "He who controls the pasta contrils the present" - and so forth.      Listen to Geoarge Orwell as a matter of urgency.

Sooner or later the average bloke on the street will realize that fiat money is always backed by a gun. So why not just get guns instead of money?

JF:  Okay. Ask yourself this: The Hadron Collider, okay? You’ve got two huge counter-rotating rings and they’re gonna spin up these particles and smash ’em together. Okay? I find that whole counter-rotating idea really weird, you know, suggestively weird. But the really weird thing to me is: Why is the first Christian Democratic Union Party Chancellor of Germany after Köhl a physicist? [Ed. note: he is referring to Angela Merkel.]

BR:  Hm.

JF:  Did you know that?

BR:  I did not.

JF:  She’s a Ph.D. in physics. [laughs]

BR:  Okay.

JF:  Why is she a Ph.D. in physics?

BR:  A Ph.D. in physics.

JF:  Yeah. Now, you know what a German Ph.D. is like, to get.

BR:  I do.

JF:  [laughs] You know, they don’t hand them out by any means and this, to me... Why is someone like that even in politics, but especially at that level? You know? This is not a Ph.D. in physics becoming premier of Somalia, you know. [laughs] This is a rather sophisticated nation, technologically. So that to me, you know... it’s another little indicator that we have to watch things over there very carefully.

There are an awful lot of these "why now" developments lately in the "just in case we need to kill a bunch of civilians with our military" category.   It seems pretty clear that They know or at least suspect that something big is coming and soon.

Nothing will happen then... and then masses of empty lives that secretly hoped for their misery to end will have to live on... 2013 will be a bad year.

My guess is that they take the system down after the election and install the new tyranny during the coldest days of winter.

Oh yeah, they're gearing up for the bond market tanking.  Baby boomers aren't going to get the retirement they wanted, so it's going to get very ugly.

If you are going to be the PERPETRATOR, would you not "know or at least suspect"?

Probably a preventative measure for when the Constitutional Court rules in favor of the EU doing anything it wants.

Nothing to see here, folks! Move along....

As the preparations unfold on how to kill several million innocents of each nation.  Soon, all they will need is an excuse to put a hot one between your eyes.  I'm not talking cop killers.  The police will soon be disillussioned also.  The military/industrial/bankster/political whore complex is coming soon to monitor,silence you, and take all your posessions.

Is it game on? The pressure on the system is tremendous. Look at the sharp rise in the 10-year over the last few weeks. The economy floated along as long as the rate of money printing was speeding up or interested rates were falling, and now neither is happening. Either yields are rising due to the bond bubble bursting, or yields are rising on expectations the Bernank will be announcing another LSAP program Aug. 31. Might be a bit of both.

bobert's picture

The yield on the ten year has risen 32% since 7/25.

Why has the ultra short 10 year PST risen only by 5% then during the same period of time???

Something wrong with da model?
