Euro Crisis: “A Flood of Inflation”

[Original title: "Prof. Markus Kerber zur Eurokrise: 'Ein Schwall von Inflation'", in korrektheiten.com, January 14, 2012. Translation by MKH]

The Deutschlandfunk (DLF, a public German radio station) has aired, Friday night, an interview with Professor Markus Kerber. Kerber is an economist at the Technische Universität Berlin. He conducts research on public finance and economic policy. The occasion was the downgrading of the creditworthiness of France from AAA to AA + by the rating agency Standard & Poors. It was about the impact on the Euro. Kerber was speaking in plain language. He said among other things:

In total, Germany can try in this situation only one thing: withdraw from the Euro rescue fund – at least from the Euro rescue fund – to secure its rating and to save [herself]. Otherwise, in the near future the conclusions from Germany’s liability-causing situation will have to be drawn. Germany will have to be liable for all, and this necessarily leads to a serious downgrade. The bailout funds …

Germany Attempts to Silence Criticism of Islam

by Soeren Kern

[Though this article is not drawn from the German blogosphere, it provides correct information on the situation of the counterjihad movement in Germany. Soeren Kern is Senior Fellow for Transatlantic Relations at the mainstream conservative Grupo de Estudios Estratégicos, Madrid.] 

German authorities have officially confirmed that they are monitoring German-language Internet websites that are critical of Muslim immigration and the Islamization of Europe.

According to Manfred Murck, director of the Hamburg branch of the German domestic intelligence agency, the Bundesamt für Verfassungsschutz (BfV), his organization is studying whether German citizens who criticize Muslims and Islam on the Internet are fomenting hate and are thus criminally guilty of “breaching” the German constitution.

The BfV’s move marks a significant setback for the exercise of free speech in Germany and comes amid a months-long smear campaign led by a triple alliance of leftwing German multicultural elites, sundry Muslim groups and members of the mainstream media, who have been relentless in their efforts to discredit the so-called counter-jihad movement (also known as the “Islamophobes”) in Germany.

Martin Lichtmesz on Germany’s Colonization

Martin Lichtmesz, one of Germany’s best political essayists (whose essays I haven’t translated until now, as his German is so brilliant that you would have to be Shakespeare to translate it in adequate English), has published a new book: “Die Verteidigung des Eigenen”, dealing with the ideology behind Germany’s self-destruction.

I want to give at least a short quotation from it: Having dealt with Frantz Fanon’s criticism of colonization and colonialism, in which the author’s the reference to  his own nègrerie (“negroness”), i.e. his awareness of racial identity and its importance for freedom and self-determination plays a major role, Martin draws a parallel to the German situation, to the arrogant attitude of the West and the self-denying masochism of many Germans:

Thorsten Hinz: State of Emergency

by Thorsten Hinz

“Ausnahmezustand”, october 16, 2011, jungefreiheit.de

Translation by Google, revised by MKH

The question of the future government practice in Europe, recently raised by Heino Bosselmann, has found a first response with the bailout Act,  approved on 29thSeptember : We are in an undeclared state of emergency! The state of emergency includes the total or partial suspension of civil rights. Having pledged the German welfare state,  the Bundestag has actually suspended our property rights. Moreover, the state of emergency means transferring legislative powers from parliament to the executive (government). The current special feature is that the government is instructed directly by the “financial markets”.

If in case future bailouts the federal government requires a “special urgency” to be declared, “(…) the participation rights of the Bundestag and the Budget Committee will be exercised by a small commission of Budget Committee members  to be elected by the Bundestag for a legislative period. The number of appointees is the smallest possible allowing  each fraction to nominate at least one member and maintaining the majority ratios. In the case of an emergency measure requiring the purchase of bonds on the secondary market in order to prevent contagion, a particular urgency is regularly to be supposed. ” Diesen Beitrag weiterlesen »

Why “smart defense” is the opposite of smart defense

by Skeptizissimus, october 10, 2011, translation by Google

First of all: defense is probably the most important prerequisite for the undisputed sovereignty of a country. And sovereignty in international law and state law includes the integrity of national territory and the decisions of government.

Those who have saved up some minimal residual sympathy for the Federal Republic and perhaps even secretly hope that the media are not brought into line as if by an invisible force, may, with Google’s new search algorithm, search for the term “smart defense”. Surprise! No German-language newspaper or television station reported on the results of the signing of the Brussels conference of NATO defense ministers.

Thanks to the semi-government Russian RIA-Novosti, there are fortunately a little clarification:

Hostility Toward Germans Part III: White Guilt and Islamic Chauvinism

Hostility Toward Germans Part III:

White Guilt and Islamic Chauvinism

Written by Manfred Kleine-Hartlage

Translated by J M Damon

A translation of a German blog posted at

[Following is Part III of my lecture “Hostility Towards the Germans – Taking Stock” which was presented to the Institut für Staatspolitik (Institute for State Policy) as part of the 18th Berlin Colloquium on 16 July 2011.]

Expansion of the Paradign of anti German Hostility

to the Entire West

As we have seen, hostility toward Germany and Germans exists on three levels.

On the lowest (first) level, it is the kind of hostility or antagonism that is directed toward a specific Volk or people (in our case the Germans.)

On this level we are dealing with simple resentments dating to former antagonisms (such as those with the Poles, English and Jews.)

Written by Manfred Kleine-Hartlage  

Translated by J M Damon

<Following is a translation of a German blog posted at <http://korrektheiten.com/2011/08/04/deutschenfeindlichkeit-teil-2-deutscher-selbsthass-und-linke-ideologie/>

[Part I of my lecture on “Hostility Towards Germans” dealt with the ideology that has resulted from the anti German narrative in the West.
I described how and why this ideology has always been and will always be inappropriate for Germany.
In the following section I discuss the consequences that necessarily derive from the adoption of this narrative by the Germans themselves.
In conclusion I discuss the role played by leftist ideology in the overall complex of hostility toward Germans.]

Hostility Towards Germans Part I: The Anti-German Narrative in the West

Written by Manfred Kleine-Hartlage

 

Translated by J M Damon

 

Following is a translation of a blog posted at http://korrektheiten.com/2011/08/02/deutschenfeindlichkeit-das-westliche-antideutsche-narrativ/

The blog begins:

[On 16 July 2011 the author gave a lecture before the Berlin Institute for State Policy on the subject of “Hostility Towards Germans – An Appraisal” in conjunction with the Institute’s 18th Course of Lectures. Unfortunately there are no recordings of this highly interesting event.  In response to requests, I have reconstituted my speech from notes. Since the lecture is too long for a single blog article I am posting it as a series, beginning with “The Anti-German Narrative in the West.]
