FAKE NEWS: Public Broadcaster Admits To Increasing Booing Sounds During Trump Davos Speech

  • FAKE NEWS: Public Broadcaster Admits To Increasing Booing Sounds During Trump Davos Speech
    by CHRIS TOMLINSON, http://www.breitbart.com/
    German public broadcaster ARD has been blasted after admitting it “boosted” the sound of booing at the speech given by U.S. President Donald Trump late last week.

    President Trump gave his speech at Davos on Thursday, again delivering sharp criticism to the mainstream media. He stated: “it wasn’t until I became a politician that I realized how nasty, how mean, how vicious, and how fake the press can be.”

    ARD released a clip of the speech on the Twitter account for its popular news programme “Tagesschau” in which distinct boos could be heard directly after the President’s comments. A short time later the programme admitted it had booted the volume of the audio in order to showcase the booing. The show has since been accused of “manipulation”, Stern reports.

    Those behind the programme wrote on Twitter, “We did actually make the sound a little louder at the end so that you can hear the booing. Only in this way can we reflect what our correspondents have reported.”

    Editor-in-chief of the German tabloid newspaper Bild Julian Reichelt called out those involved saying it was, “hard to imagine that you would have done the same for applause.”

    Kai Gniffke, the editor in chief of ARD defended the move saying that it proved the reporting of his journalists. “By the way, newspapers also make comparisons when they enlarge image sections and may even mark them with a red circle – nobody would come up with the idea of calling this manipulation, but rather journalistic precision,” he said.

    The move is not the first time the German media has shown a bias against the U.S. President. German left-leaning magazine Der Spiegel has been slammed by many for its various magazine covers including one that depicted President Trump cutting off the head of the Statue of Liberty designed to be reminiscent of Islamic State executions.

    Some in the German press have also engaged in radical rhetoric regarding Trump and his presidency with Josef Joffe, editor and publisher of left-wing paper Die Zeitsaying last year on a political panel television programme that the only way to end the “Trump catastrophe” was a “murder in the White House.”

    In a more bizarre comment, editor in chief of the centre-right paper Die Welt Ulf Poschardt said that the best way for Germans to oppose Trump was to be more multicultural and more “gay.”

    Germany’s establishment media collectively lost their minds when Breitbart London reported on a cathedral being set on fire in January last year, in addition to the use of an illustrative jetski photo which happened to include a barely recognisable, famous semi-retired footballer.

United States of Europe: German Minister Unveils Shocking EU Vision to TAKE OVER Continent

Revelation 13 New King James Version (NKJV) –
The Beast from the Sea: 13 Then I[a] stood on the sand of the sea. And I saw a beast rising up out of the sea, having seven heads and ten horns,[b] and on his horns ten crowns, and on his heads a blasphemous name. 2 Now the beast which I saw was like a leopard, his feet were like the feet of a bear, and his mouth like the mouth of a lion. The dragon gave him his power, his throne, and great authority.

  • United States of Europe: German Minister Unveils Shocking EU Vision to TAKE OVER Continent
    by AURORA BOSOTTI, https://www.express.co.uk/
    GERMAN Foreign Minister Sigmar Gabriel revealed his shocking vision of the future that would see the European Union completely control the continent.

    The fervently pro-EU politician suggested European countries in the future will only be able to exercise self-control through the European Union. Mr Gabriel claimed even Germany – the EU’s largest and strongest financial contributor – would have to accept more EU rules in the coming years. He said: “In the world of the 21st Century, Europe will only be able to act on a sovereign basis via the European Union, by winning back sovereignty through the European Union. 

    “Even Germany, big and strong as it is, in tomorrow’s world will not have a voice by itself. Our children and grandchildren will have the choice of having no voice to be heard or a common European voice.”

    He had been speaking at a conference detailing the next seven-year budget of the EU, following speeches by EU Commissioner Jean-Claude Juncker and European Commission budget Gunther Oettinger. Explaining his vision, Mr Gabriel called for further integration between EU member states to better “defend the interests” of their citizens and further stabilise the European Union.

    He said: “There is no loss of sovereignty by being part of the European Union. There may be a loss of sovereignty when it comes to shaping life in Europe if we did not have a European Union and if nation states by themselves had to defend the interests of their population.”

EU SUPERSTATE NEAR: Schulz Vows to Create Brussels Finance Minister in MASSIVE Power Grab

  • EU SUPERSTATE NEAR: Schulz Vows to Create Brussels Finance Minister in MASSIVE Power Grab
    by REBECCA PINNINGTON, https://www.express.co.uk/
    SPD leader Martin Schulz has said the European Union will have its own finance minister to oversee the Euro, as a series of controversial reforms is set to extend the bloc’s powers.

    In an  with Angela Merkel’s CDU, Mr Schulz’s SPD has backed an “investment budget” for the euro, as well as turning the ESM bailout mechanism into a European Monetary Fund under parliamentary control.

    Speaking to broadcaster ZDF, Mr Schulz declared: “The paper is a turnaround for European politics. There will be a European finance minister.” Leading CDU figures including Angela Merkel had initially expressed doubts about whether such a figure would have too much power, but she appears to have backed down in a significant concession to europhile Mr Schulz.

    The announcement is a huge success for French president Emmanuel Macron, who proposed the sweeping EU reforms, including the creation of a Euro finance minister.

    And the agreement between Germany’s two largest parties sees them commit to developing “common positions with France on all important questions of European and international politics”.

    Mr Macron has  about the CDU-SPD propositions for EU reform, as he personally does not back the creation of a European Monetary Fund, believing it is enough to make some minor changes to the ESM.

    However the plans bring Germany much closer to his views on the Eurozone – meaning Angela Merkel is highly likely to throw her weight behind his vision, which also includes an EU army and shared defence budget in a bold vision for Europe.

    After the 28-page document was unveiled on Friday morning, Mr Schulz said: “Together, we are determined to use Germany’s strength, both economically and politically, to make Europe a grand project again. This is our common goal.”

    EU Commission president Jean-Claude Juncker is . He said: “In terms of the substance I’m very happy with what the CDU/CSU and the SPD have agreed. It is a significant, positive, forward-looking contribution to European policy debate in Europe.” The creation of a European finance minister could be the first step in former European parliament president Mr Schulz’s dream for a federal Europe.

    At the SPD conference in December 2017, he laid out his desire to create a United States of Europe within eight years, telling party delegates: “I want there to be a constitutional treaty to create a federal Europe.”

    In the same speech, he vowed the SPD would take an active role in shaping European policy, refusing to give a say to more conservative figures such as former finance minister Wolfgang Schäuble. The SPD membership will vote on the deal at a party congress set for January 21.

Thank God We’re LEAVING! Macron and Merkel Plot Massive EU Power-Grab in Latest Revelation

  • Thank God We’re LEAVING! Macron and Merkel Plot Massive EU Power-Grab in Latest Revelation
    by AURORA BOSOTTI, https://www.express.co.uk/
    FRANCE AND GERMANY are rumoured to be plotting to strengthen their partnership to further expand their influence on the European Union.

    France and Germany have long shared a strong partnership on European Union issues, with Chancellor Angela Merkel putting fellow leader Emmanuel Macron’s plans for EU reform at the centre of her coalition talks. French MEP Jean Arthuis claimed Ms Merkel could push for an even stronger alliance should she succeed in forming a majority government after leaving Germany without formal leadership for months.

    Speaking to Euronews, Mr Arthuis said: “If this grand coalition is formed, I think it will be favourable to Europe. “Strengthening the Franco-German relationship will be good. Also beyond the partnership to the rest of the European partnership.”

    The German leader is struggling on through months of political uncertainty following an inconclusive election in September. But her decision to seek a political partnership with the pro-EU Social Democratic Party (SPD) could signal Ms Merkel is prepared to make concessions on EU-related issues.

    Sealing a deal with the SPD to renew their ‘grand coalition’, which has governed Germany since 2013, would be Ms Merkel’s best chance of securing a fourth term in office after the election weakened both parties. Mr Macron’s plans are supported by SPD leader Martin Schulz, who wants more investment in the eurozone and has even called for a ‘United States of Europe’ to bring the bloc closer together.

One in Three Germans, French Polled Support ‘United States of Europe’ Idea

https://twitter.com/RJTaskerDXB/status/946504690723966981

  • One in Three Germans, French Polled Support ‘United States of Europe’ Idea
    by https://sputniknews.com/
    MOSCOW (Sputnik) – Approximately one-third of German and French nationals support the idea of establishing a so-called United States of Europe, which is promoted by leader of German Social Democrats (SPD) Martin Schulz, the results of a recent poll showed.

    At an SPD party convention on December 7, former President of European Parliament Schulz suggested turning the European Union into a “United States of Europe” by 2025 and adopting a constitution.

    According to the YouGov poll published on Thursday, 30 percent of Germans and 28 percent of French support the idea, while 33 percent and 26 percent, respectively, disagree. In other countries, such as Sweden, Finland, Denmark, Norway and the United Kingdom, the population largely opposed the proposal, with around half of the respondents speaking against the idea.

    The poll was conducted on December 13-19 and involved 8,138 individuals from the countries mentioned above.

‘United States of Europe’ Would Become a ‘German Dictate’ – Czech Politician

  • ‘United States of Europe’ Would Become a ‘German Dictate’ – Czech Politician
    by https://sputniknews.com/
    German SPD party leader Martin Schulz’s talk of a European federalist constitutional treaty sparked an uproar of dissent and criticism within the European Union, especially from its Eastern European members. Speaking to Sputnik, Czech politician Premysl Votava outlined what he said was so dangerous about Schulz’s proposal.

    Last week, Schulz outlined his desire to create a legal mechanism for Europe’s federalization, subject to EU member approval, leading to the creation of a ‘United States of Europe’ by the year 2025. According to the politician, any country opposed to the idea would be free to exit the supranational bloc.

    Speaking to Sputnik Czech, Premysl Votava, deputy chairman of the Czech National Social Party, a left civic nationalist and soft Eurosceptical party, said that while Schulz’s proposal was absurd, it was by no means accidental.

    “It turns out that one of the countries of the European Union, and one which from the economic point of view is the strongest, wants to determine how the EU will look within the next few years. This looks like a return to the time of the dictate, when small states have to submit to the interests of stronger states,” the politician warned.

German FM Defends SPD Party’s Idea of European Super-State

Revelation 13:1 – Then I stood on the sand of the sea. And I saw a beast rising up out of the sea, having seven heads and ten horns,(b) and on his horns ten crowns, and on his heads a blasphemous name.

  • German FM Defends SPD Party’s Idea of European Super-State
    by https://sputniknews.com/
    With his proposal for deeper European integration, SPD leader Martin Schulz has big plans to transform the EU into a bloc with a common constitution. His initiative hasn’t been met with excitement among the conservatives, but the German foreign minister and member of Angela Merkel’s CDU/CSU party, Siegmar Gabriel, has supported the move.

    German FM Siegmar Gabriel criticized the harsh reaction of his CDU/CSU colleagues toward SPD leader Martin Schulz’s proposal to promote the idea of a so-called “United States of Europe,” Tagesschau reported.

    Members of the conservative party on Saturday rejected the SPD chairman’s idea of deeper integration within the EU, but Gabriel urged them to refrain from attacking someone who proposes new ideas.

    “Politics is often criticized for not having any visions,” Gabriel said. “Now someone has an idea — namely, Martin Schulz — about how to move forward with Europe, but everyone falls upon him.”

    According to Gabriel, Europe must become an institution “representing European citizens on the global level.”

    In the “changing world,” national states are incapable of withstanding global challenges on their own, he argued, adding that “if we do not stand together, then our children will have no voice” on the international stage.
