Germany’s Merkel Says “US and Britain Are Not Reliable Partners”

Once again, president Trump has not pleased Angela Merkel. The first time was the frosty visit to the White House, where president Trump did not shake hands with her in spite of a call from reporters to do so.

After last week’s European visit of the US leader, she said:  “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.”

The problem: At the G-7 meeting in Europe, Trump refused to endorse the Paris climate treaty, which president Obama had supported. That’s the great thing about elections: prior dumb actions can be reversed.

Apparently, president Trump agrees with tens of millions of Americans who don’t believe that what used to be called “global warming,” is man-made.  A little bit of research shows that these are normal cycles that have prevailed for tens of thousands of years. The only difference now is that greedy politicians and financial engineers have found a way to make trillions of dollars in profits from the cycles by scaring governments around the world.

The goal is to reduce CO2 emissions. But CO2 is essential for life on this planet. Anyone who believes that mankind is at fault should read some scientific articles. Or just watch the Weather Channel which is more entertaining. It explains how the earth self-adjusts or ‘buffers’ these cycles of CO2 and temperature changes. It’s nature! Here’s an excerpt from zerohedge on Merkel’s latest comments:

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.”

Our view: What are Merkel’s qualifications? She was a school teacher in communist East Germany, born under communism. Thus, we have to understand why she would let millions of uneducated, welfare-seeking migrants into Germany from the Middle East and Africa. It will destroy Germany as we know it.

Informed Americans love it when the US doesn’t go along with the lame-brained policies of European leaders.
