Merkel angry over Trump climate position and Brexit, says Germany ‘can no longer rely on’ US and Britain
With Europe in grip of Jihadi terrorism and ever-worsening migrant crisis, German Chancellor wants to isolate Germany and take rest of Europe with her.
With Europe in the grip of Jihadi terrorism and an ever-worsening migrant crisis, German Chancellor Angela Merkel wants to isolate Germany and take rest of the Europe with her.
“The times in which we could completely depend on others are on the way out. I have experienced that in the last few days,” Chancellor Merkel said at an election rally in the city of Munich. “We Europeans must really take our destiny in our own hands.”
Chancellor Merkel’s defiant talk was “applauded by 2,000 listeners” present in a Munich beer tent, local media reported.
“Merkel doesn’t consider the U.S. a reliable partner anymore,” wrote the German newspaper Die Welt. Merkel “has no confidence in transatlantic relationship writes Munich’s Sueddeutsche Zeitung.
The U.S. president’s non-committal stance on ‘Climate Change’ was reportedly the deal-breaker for Chancellor Merkel. According to the German media reports, Chancellor Merkel had been irked by Trump’s defiance on the issue. She regards ‘Climate Change’ central to her internationalist agenda, referring to the last year’s Paris Agreement as the “key agreement that shapes today’s globalization.”
At the G7 summit—a meeting of the world’s most industrialised nations—held in the Italian city of Sicily, “the group of six [world leaders] fruitlessly tried to convince the U.S. President Donald Trump of the opportunities of a committed Climate Change Policy,” Süddeutsche Zeitung reported.
While the Obama administration, much like the E.U., was the leading backer of ‘Climate Change’ on the world stage. President Trump apparently has little interest in carrying along his predecessor’s ideological baggage.
After the disappointing G7 summit, the Federal Chancellor Angela Merkel doesn’t want to rely on the US anymore.
“The times in which we could completely depend on others are on the way out. I have experienced that in the last few days,” said Merkel on Sunday at a beer-tent speech in Munich-Trudering. “We Europeans must really take our destiny in our own hands.” She said amid applause from 2000 listeners in the beer tent.
With her words, Merkel was referring to the new administration of Donald Trump, but she was also referring to the impending Brexit of Great Britain. The Friendship with the US and Great Britain must be maintained. And “wherever it is possible, also with Russia and with other countries,” Merkel stressed. Here she placed particular importance to good relationship with France under the new President Emmanuel Macron. [Die Welt, May 28, 2017; Author’s translation]
The German political establishment sees President Trump as an obstacle on the way towards their progressive utopia. “Trump blocks progress at G7 summit,” reported the German public broadcaster Deutsche Welle following the two-day summit.
Now with pro-EU French President Emmanuel Macron on her side and her growing lead in national polls ahead of the September parliamentary election, Chancellor Merkel feels she can take on the U.S. President and rally continental Europe behind her.

“Reliable partner”: one that funds Germany’s defense so the Germans can have great social services and support Muslim migrants.
What are you talking about, Markel says they will reach the agreed on 2% by 2024. Krauthammer was upset that Trump didn’t promise to protect these slackers. Too bad. It’s suppose to be an alliance, not America pays and everyone else goes on vacation. The Europeans were actually laughing at Trump asking them to pay their share. Trump should tell them if they don’t meet theirs obligations they can protect themselves.
Some Euros won’t get serious until the US begins removing troops, tanks and jets from Germany and elsewhere. Then Germany can resort to old habits eg. slap the French.
All the tanks went to Iraq and Afghanistan a while back.
Just last June the first 250 tanks returned.
I tend to agree with you. They want our funding, and Obama was always more than willing to redistribute our money to them — for whatever ‘opportunities’ that apparently sfforfd.
I read that Merkel was demanding that England keep their borders open. She wants to share the Muslim barbarians the EU is importing.
Furher Merkel gets crazier everyday.
Oh excuse me. I forgot the modern term for crazy is “conspiracy believer.”
Interesting article I read is that Merkel and most of the rest of the western European and EU leaders don’t care about the future is because they are childless. By contrast, the Prime Ministers of Poland, Hungary and the Czech Republic are all parents and devout Christians.
would be interested in that article.
What kind of site/source is that?
The EU leaders might be childless, but they don’t seem to get lonely – not with young boys around to molest.
The EU is great – invest your son:
The EU Is Finding a Way to Legalize Child Molestation
If you can’t send your son to Brussels for molestation, send him to Hollywood:
Unfunny ‘comedienne’ Sarah Silverman:
Silverman sent out a tweet on July 7, 2009 that reads:
Hey, is it considered molestation if the child makes the first move? I’m gonna need a quick answer on this.
— Sarah Silverman (@SarahKSilverman) July 7, 2009
Then only a month later Silverman sent out another tweet that reads:
I changed a baby’s diaper today and she had a totally shaved vagina. What a country!

Liberal and Green child molesters – the shocking reality of the European Parliament:
The EU wants to legalize child molestation because it’s standard behavior among its Muslims. Muhammad’s marriage of Aisha at the age of 6 (and his raping her at the age of 9) makes it holy behavior. Also, the raping of younger boys by older boys is sop at Islamic madrassas.
Once an East German, always an East German…
What a coincidence. Germany hasn’t really been an ally since 1989, and only an unwilling one before that. Anti-US propaganda is a daily staple of the German news diet, and their neo-feudal socialist state is committing cultural suicide. Screw them.
What Chancellor Merkel fails to realize is this: now that the Cold War is over, the United States doesn’t need Germany. Germany was the real estate we were going to use to stop the Soviet Union (somewhere around the Fulda Gap). But the Russians aren’t going to storm into Europe any time soon (though Estonia is right to be nervous). The other threats to Europe today are internal and are such that even if Europe recognized the problem and wanted our help, we couldn’t help them.
We don’t need Germany. If Germany wishes to reduce its relationship with us, fine. We can trade, we can have cultural and educational exchanges, we can smile and be nice. But if Ms. Merkel wishes to go her own direction, sure ma’am, you go right ahead. Be seein’ ya.
We need Canada. We need a (more) stable Mexico. We need Japan and Australia. But Europe? Nah, don’t think so.
The premise of NATO was that an attack on Paris or Brussels or Rome was the same as an attack on New York. Is there an American who today believes that to be true?
“We Europeans must really take our destiny in our own hands.”
Well, considering that their destiny is currently in the hands of the millions of migrants arriving in Europe, that’s a start.
can they spell ‘Eurabia’ and ‘Sharia’,
do their females want FGM as a duty to the cause ?
Merkel can rely on all those jihadi fighters she invited into Germany to protect her from Russia. But she will have to learn to down her beers in private and observe Ramadan if she wants to keep them happy.
Well given Germany invited a million uncontrolled Arab and Muslim men into Europe, the USA and Britain cannot rely on Germany.
in the mid to late 80’s when I served in hanau area there were turks knifing soldiers due to islam and it was covered up. we (I was MP) had reports edited to hide the reasons.
even in 1986 germans were working hard to get US nukes out of the area (read up on nato site 5 incursions at fleigerhorst kaserne) and lot of anti-us protests.
seems the germans want to have their cake and eat it still even today.
Pita and Humus more likely now.
Gasp! What swine they are!
Ah, Hessen! The province full of Birkenstock wearin’ and granola eatin’ Germans who make the rest of Germany seem downright conservative.
When I was stationed in Bavaria at the end of the 90s, the folks in Hessen were very vocal in their displeasure with the fact that we Amis were still there. Not surprising to hear they were rigorous about getting rid of our nukes in the late 80s.
To paraphrase Donald Rumsfeld, you conduct your foreign policy with the friends you have not the friends you wish you had.
She’d better be careful of what she wishes for. Does she think a Putin led Soviet Bear is going to let Germany build up a self contained international fighting force that has the ability to confront Russia…….ever again? I’d bet one Berlin and raise you a Dresden that they won’t.
Not only that, I suspect Greece & Poland are growing tired of EU/German diktats over their local policies as well. Particularly since Trump emboldened them and called out Germany and the other freeloaders on their NATO contributions.
Evidently Germany still holds on to its suicide wish it has suffered from all through the 20th Century.
Germany will not survive – not with the direction it is headed.
Eastern and Western European powers can easily overrun that infamous great northern European plain and make mince-meat of them.
That great northern European plain is the Achilles Heel of any “Germanic” state…….
Typical German. Insulting Britain and the US who helped to defeat Hitler and break the chains of Nazi aggression. We don’t need you.
And rebuilt their country, as well as the rest of Europe.
Too many Germans never believed they were bad – to have carried out the evil they did under Hitler.
I know this from a personal anecdote a co-worker who was fluent in German told. He told how as an American tourist (who the Germans thought couldn’t speak or understand German) he had sat across from Germans in a train compartment.
Not know he was fluent in German, they were going on about how Hitler wasn’t bad at all.
Eurabia is becoming Judenrein, as more and more Jews are making Aliyah or sending their kids to school in Israel (to also prepare for parents to make Aliyah).
Germany now facing a Refugee crisis, a Banking crisis, an Energy crisis, a currency crisis, a financial crisis, a NATO crisis and a major Demographic crisis.
And the USA is no longer going to be an Enabler.
Europe is done.
In the current geopolitical context, it looks like central and western Europe will eventually (i.e., soon) face a choice of fates; domination by Russia, or suppression by the Caliphate (even though the Caliphate doesn’t actually exist; the final effect will be the same).
The toxic hybridization of rampant liberalism and persistent socialism have left the societies of Germany, France, Italy, Belgium, the Netherlands, Norway, et al, supine and emasculated, unable to defend themselves and unwilling to even try. So all are going to be suppressed and dominated by somebody; if they’re lucky, they may get to choose who.
Personally, I’d recommend Russia. For all their faults, the Russians won’t dynamite all non-Islamic religious monuments (like Europe’s old collection of Gothic cathedrals), mutilate all the women, rape all the children, or behead all the men. Not all of them, anyway.
The UK, Poland, Hungary, and a few others are a different story. Maybe.
I wouldn’t trust Merkel any closer than I could throw a pig at her. Pretty sure Germany and the rest of Europe need to stop enjoying the safety that America provides before they wake up to their self-inflicted disaster.
Try throwing a pig at her. You might get lucky.
What is delicious about all this is that merkel and her ilk (soros and the rest) put all their eggs in the hillary clinton basket – every one of them.
Thank you, merkel and soros.
May they all choke on Donald Trump.
All this todo about climate change and all these drastic measures we must take, all the treaties they demand we make, and so forth, and yet we still have no serious, properly researched answers for 1) how much (what percentage) of the global climate change we are witnessing is due to man’s actions and how much is simply nature at work, 2) what are “safe” levels of CO2 that can be tolerated in the atmosphere and how is “safe” defined, and 3) what is the cost of “fixing” the global warming situation (whatever that means) as opposed to the cost of doing nothing?
Without answering these questions, our “leaders” have been driven by manufactured hysteria. They are demanding that we fix something that we are unsure if we are even the culprit for causing; demanding that we take corrective actions when we have no clue as to what those actions should be, what our goals should be, or what “success” should look like or how it should be defined; and without knowing the cost it will take to “fix” this issue as opposed to doing nothing. This all sounds like cart-before-the-horse paranoia aimed more at crowd control than it does a serious scientific crisis.
But then again, I am only a 65 year old research chemist who has a degree in the “wrong” area to allow me to have a valid opinion and I am obviously far less intelligent and informed than the army of high school graduates, lawyers, and concerned college graduates who majored is such pertinent fields as Lesbian Dance Theory. In this day and age, we have somehow managed to convince so many that people like myself are truly ignorant in the areas of scientific research while those who never studied science know so much more. What could possibly go wrong?
It’s not not about the science, it’s all about the money. Collectivists all around the world want money from those who produce like the US and give it to their Collectivist friend while keeping some for themselves.
And what is the ideal temperature for the planet? We keep hearing that it’s too warm, but relative to what? Seven billion people on the planet need to be fed, so maybe longer growing seasons and wider growing regions will benefit the planet more than spending tens of trillions and bankrupting nations. Humans have only been around for a micro-second in the Earth’s 4 billion+ year existence and the planet has been warmer and colder than it is now. Humans won’t be around forever, either, despite the arrogance than says we can control climate, the sun, the gravitational pull of other planets, tilt of the earth, etc.
If they had a quantitative theory, and some repeatable measurements which could be used to evaluate the results of attempts at control, then—assuming such attempts were successful—we would know when to discontinue the control regimen.
And this they will never do.
Once control is imposed, it will be permanent, simply because there will be no way to demonstrate that we don’t need even more of it, and so on in perpetuity.
Paradoxically, the more scientific the study of a problem—real or imaginary—becomes, the less useful it is politically.
The point of Global awarding is to destroy capitalism so everyone is dependent on the socialist government and fearful of their economic survival. A big step towards the progressive/socialist fascist uttopia. A utopia where they rule a one party state and thru it control every aspect of society without regard for laws or the constitution. This utopia is identical in every significant respect to that create by Communists, Nazis and Muslims and just as evil.
Why is it from time to time a German leader comes on the stage and begins to bully the European region. Another case of “Do it my way or else.” Where have we heard that before.
All we have to do is to look at the history of Europe. Two world wars and many instances of brutal dictatorships. The usual European country has a national flag with its colors on one side and all white on the other. That way they can surrender quickly and not lose any business! This has been their modus operandi for centuries. They have become Socialists and with our money, have ignored their own defense. Now that Trump is demanding that they pay their share they are upset. Let them go to war against climate change if they want to but we will fight a real enemy.
Perhaps the rest of the world needs worry more about Germany. After all we’ve seen the end result when Germany feels isolated.
“the group of six [world leaders] fruitlessly tried to convince the U.S. President Donald Trump of the opportunities of a committed Climate Change Policy,” Süddeutsche Zeitung reported.
The ‘opportunities’….Interesting choice of words. What opportunities would be available through supporting climate change?
The first I heard about this climate hooey, several decades ago, was from some industrial wheeler-dealer types who were positively salivating over the idea of getting in on the “carbon credits” scam.
Hey, free money—the financial version of the perpetual motion machine.
This was long before it became an apocalyptic cult among our perpetual activists, who seem to be motivated by blind faith, rather than profit.
It’s been a total scam from the start.
Research how all the leftist, prog climate alarmists where screeching “Global Cooling” and “Global Winter” all through the 70s.
That seems to have shut down when Reagan and Bush were elected for 12 years…..
Then with the reign of Billy Bob Clinton here comes his Global Warming fiends. That didn’t sell, so they switched it to Climate Change.
Heck! What’s that old saying?
“If you don’t like the weather here, just wait a few minutes.”
They were already counting the money, and figuring out what to spend it on..
Now it looks like their cash cow slipped away…
Well, I hope it did.
Angela Merkel is incensed that the US and the UK I think for themselves, and are not her puppets.
The disturbing thing about Merkel is that Germans support her radical left agenda. Is it a guilt complex? Do they believe bringing in a million third worlders will be good for Germany? They bought this nonsense and now they own it.
Germans have no “critical thinking” skills methinks.
