Not only was former chancellor Merkel’s style of politics material in laying the groundwork of current Germany. It was in essence the electrophysiological effects of her voice that set her apart. Her famous voice shows earlier mismatch negativities (MMN) responses than unfamiliar voices.
This is no lefty, no commie. He’s Filthie and he tries to explain Russia, Putin, Ukraine and in doing that a lot of fucked up politicians. Filthie is pretty good. Decide for yourself.
An Attempt At Objectivity
“I wonder if this isn’t just a case of acclimation? Think about it – for the last 40 years, we in the west have elected a steady stream of ridiculous fops, carnies, perverts, and shysters for our leaders. Turdo. Macron. Biden. Merkel et al. Even the retards are beginning to see it and lose patience with them. Could it be that we are so used to these cretins posing as our leaders… that we no longer recognize a warrior when we see one?
It’s a recurring theme I see going on with the disconnected normies, the self proclaimed experts, and the other Globohomo zombies… is this idea the Putin is a mad man, a megalomaniac, and a murderous socialist zealot. Where have I heard this kind of codswallop before? The chant used to be “Orange Man Bad!!!”. Now it’s “Russia Man Bad!!!”. The same message coming from the same tools that brought America a cooked election and a fake pandemic. Gah – I’ll leave Aesop and the foot-loops to their stories and narratives…. but now I am genuinely interested now. Who is Vlad Putin? What makes him tick?
Hmmmmm. Born in 1952. Grew up with the Cold War. Graduated from law school and went to work for the KGB in 1975 or so. Welp… he isn’t an idiot, that’s for sure. He rose in rank and retired from the KGB as a lieutenant colonel. So, we can safely say he’s no nut job either. He was the Russian answer to James Bond, really.
Got started in politics, and was brought in to turn Russia around. When the old Soviet Union collapsed, many former east bloc countries fell into anarchy and chaos and turned into war zones run by competing gangsters and war lords vying for control. People complained when Vlad seized extraordinary powers for himself, and used them to eliminate his rivals. What folks don’t get is the fact that any number of Vlad’s rivals were just as bad – and many were far worse – than he was. They would have used the exact same tactics too. That is the way Russians roll. It’s also why, when their politics go sideways…tens of millions of innocent people end up dead. In Russian terms, Vlad is a saint. And turn Russia around he did! When he first came to power the population of Russia dropped as people flooded west to more freedom loving countries. As he slowly reversed the economic depression, people started having families again and the population of Russia started to rise. Russians have no use for the morally and intellectually bankrupt. Putin began finding such people in his govt – and ruthlessly rooted them out. Our leaders today would have probably been sent to the gulag decades ago if Putin were in charge.
In 2015 turmoil and disorder erupted in the Ukraine. The US – over the objections of Putin and his country, overthrew a legally elected leader installed a puppet Ukrainian govt headed by Zelensky. Almost at once Zelensky started poking and taunting the bear. The Ukraine competes with Russia as a gas and oil supplier. Under Zelensky, the Ukraine started extorting billions of dollars a year from Russia by playing fast and loose with trade agreements and ignoring others altogether.
The US didn’t listen to the Russian complaints because the Ukraine bought off the Bidens, the Kerrys, the Clintons, and the Romneys. There are undoubtedly others. So… no, General Aesop. Putin didn’t just wake up one day and decide to invade the Ukraine. He tried to talk to you about it, and you didn’t listen to him.The Ukrainians under Zelensky went on to the kill 14,000 civilians in the former Donetsk and Luhansk oblasts. The first thing Zelensky did was make the use of the Russian language illegal even in areas where Russian was the dominant language. Putin isn’t asking for anything unreasonable either. NATO has been crowding his borders with tanks, troops, and ordnance for over a decade now – this despite their promises that they wouldn’t do that. He wants your troops off his borders, he wants an end to the corruption and blatant theft of the finks in the Ukraine, and he wants a mutually enforced neutrality for the Ukraine. You could have thrown him a bone at any time during the last decade… but you pissed in his face and called him names instead. Now you and the mean girls are trying to cancel him on Facebook and Twitter!
Biden and faggots like you have been tormenting and taunting the shit out of that Russian Bear, and if you keep fucking with him…you’re going to find out. As we speak, Russia is slowly pounding the Ukraine into rubble. All you need to do is start TALKING to the guy to make it stop. Ball’s in your court, morons.
Putin is not a nice guy. He is a warrior – unlike certain gay male nurses in California that pretend to know it all. Putin does not like killing but will do it if that is what he needs to do in order to safeguard his country. Politics that come from bumper stickers and one liner memes aren’t going to cut it.
It’s said that people get the govt they want and deserve. Perhaps we have ours… and the Ukes are getting theirs? Time will tell I suppose.”
“So long as her attractions could enthrall, She flounced and flirted and enjoyed it all, But now that they’re no longer what they were She quits a world which fast is quitting her, And wears a veil of virtue to conceal Her bankrupt beauty and her lost appeal.”
The number crunchers at DeStasi Stats did a great job at creating a completely new index. Based on the well-known ECONOMIST BIG MAC index, they looked at the economic scenario from 2005, the beginning of her reign, until 2021 when she was carted off. Here is the ‘Merkel’s Pants Index’. One could as well call it the ‘Merkel’s Pants Chafing Index’. The years from 2005 till end of 2006 were without any event that could bother Mutti. The pants index is accordingly flat. However, some aids meant to have heard something from across the ocean and that’s when it got interesting. She kept saying it does not concern Europe. Yeah, right, until it did. Boom.
The U.S. subprime mortgage market collapses after the housing bubble burst the year prior. The U.S. crisis ultimately triggers a global banking crisis and credit crunch that lasts through 2009, felling global financial behemoth Lehman Brothers and prompting government bailouts of banks in the United States and Europe. As borrowing costs rise and financing dries up, Greece is unable to service its mounting debt.
October 4, 2009 Papandreou’s Revelation
Pasok (Socialist) leader George Papandreou wins national elections, becoming prime minister. Within weeks, Papandreou reveals that Greece’s budget deficit will exceed 12 percent of GDP, nearly double the original estimates. The figure is later revised upward to 15.4 percent. Greece’s borrowing costs spike as credit-rating agencies downgrade the country’s sovereign debt to junk status in early 2010.
May 2, 2010 First Bailout for Greece
To avoid default, the International Monetary Fund and EU agree to provide Greece with 110 billion euros ($146 billion) in loans over three years. Germany provides the largest sum, about 22 billion euros, of the EU’s 80 billion euro portion. In exchange, Prime Minister Papandreou commits to austerity measures, including 30 billion euros in spending cuts and tax increases.
February 21, 2012 EU Agrees to New Greek Bailout – Things heat up and Mutti has to do a lot of trundling between Berlin, Brussels, Paris and where not.
Finance ministers approve a second EU-IMF bailout for Greece, worth 130 billion euros ($172 billion). The deal includes a 53.5 percent debt write-down—or “haircut”—for private Greek bondholders. In exchange, Greece must reduce its debt-to-GDP ratio from 160 percent to 120.5 percent by 2020. Greece and its private creditors complete the debt restructuring on March 9, the largest such restructuring in history.
September 6, 2012 ECB Unveils Unlimited Bond-Buying Plan – Merkel close to heart attack as she hears those words of that Italian, “Whatever it takes!”. Gone were the Buba days when Germany adopted the euro.
ECB President Mario Draghi announces an open-ended program to buy the government bonds of struggling eurozone states on the secondary market. The policy shift, coming weeks after Draghi’s vow to “do whatever it takes to preserve the euro,” is aimed at calming volatile markets, and the ECB’s strong show of commitment succeeds in bringing down borrowing costs for indebted periphery countries.
Things calm down and likewise Merkel can relax a little.
July 17, 2013 Greek Parliament Approves Austerity Measures
Greece’s Parliament approves unpopular new austerity measures, agreed to as a condition of the ongoing EU-IMF bailout. The legislation include layoffs of some twenty-five thousand public servants, as well as wage cuts, tax reforms, and other budget cuts. The approval opens the way for a new tranche of bailout funds worth nearly 7 billion euros ($9 billion), while labor unions call a general strike in protest.
Merkel feels vindicated and Pants Index shows clear downturn.
April 10, 2014 Greece Returns to International Bond Market
Greece returns to international financial markets with its first issue of Eurobonds in four years. Despite an early morning bomb blast, the government raises 3 billion euros in five year bonds, with an initial yield of under 5 percent—a low rate seen as a mark of a return to economic normalcy. In another sign of renewed investor confidence, the offer raises 1 billion euros more than expected.
2015 brings double whammy and Merkel needs to shuffle to and fro as Super Mario goes on spending spree. This Italian, the ‘Draghila’. Add to that her invitation to hundreds of thousands of people from strange countries to just flock in and enjoy the sight seeing in Germany with all its perks. Other Western countries think she has gone mad. Borders anyone???
January 22, 2015 ECB Announces Quantitative Easing
Faced with deflation and economic stagnation in the eurozone, the ECB announces a 1.1 trillion euro (more than $1.2 trillion) program of quantitative easing (QE) to spur inflation and growth. Under the program, the ECB will purchase 60 billion euros in financial assets, including sovereign government bonds, each month. Under ECB rules, however, Greek bonds are not eligible.
Can it get any worse? Yes, the lefties win in Greece and that finance minister without tie but great piano player has the audacity to show up. Schäuble about to rip the wheels off.
January 25, 2015 Syriza Wins Snap Elections
The left-wing, anti-austerity Syriza party wins a resounding victory in snap elections, breaking more than forty years of two-party rule. Incoming Prime Minister Alexis Tsipras says he will push for a renegotiation of bailout terms, debt cancellation, and renewed public sector spending—setting up a showdown with international creditors that threatens Greek default and potential exit from the monetary union.
November 2016 shit hits the fan. What happened? Only one word needed, TRUMP! Her absolute nemesis. Merkel will never recover from that and the Pants Index shoots up as ever fatter growing thighs gobble up 8 pants a year. It’s chafe, chafe, chafe. Germany has never seen that before. Weimar pants inflation.
In 2021 she is basically dead. A sitting, lame duck waiting to get the boot. The rest is history as she is replaced by a total bore from Hamburg.
