Tübingen, Germany, this picture is of the Neckar River just a few blocks from my Gymnasium where I went to school.
Back in 1968, I won the National German Scholarship contest. Actually, I came in second but my German teacher learned the winner was actually a German boy who was going temporarily to school in America. So she protested this and I won. I ended up being deported a year later because I was very, very active in the student uprising in Europe that year. It was tons of fun! Anyways, in the news this month is Germany’s fabled engineers and designers and business wizards caught with blood on their hands for rigging the fuel tests to improve the results for diesel vehicles. Heads are rolling and everyone replacing the heads that rolled turn out to be just as complicit.
‘Whether and to what extent this software actually attacks in an unauthorized manner, is currently still subject to internal and external audits’, VW announced on Thursday before the news of the raids.
Daily newspaper Bild pointed out that the sprawling Wolfsburg plant has been designated by the VW board as the place where most repairs to affected vehicles in Germany will be repaired.
US Volkswagen boss admits he knew of the emissions scandal last year as firm halts delivery of new diesel cars: this news just appeared and it looks like the picture is darkening greatly. Germany, as they did after WWII, will, like Japan, sweep all this under the rug but then, the US has been doing this for a long, long time, too.
The belief we are going to roast to death led Germany to have ‘stringent rules’ for CO2 which encouraged the use of air-polluting (in other ways) diesel vehicles. This infantile belief we will roast to death if there is ‘too much CO2’ (aka: plant food) has caused more than one EU nation to push for other real toxins that trees don’t eat to survive.
Then there is the really dumb EU politics foisted on the natives of Europe that are leading straight to extreme violence: West-led Color Revolution backfires as refugee crisis worsens the Chinese news, Xinhua reports.
Merkel Under Fire: German Conservatives Deeply Split over Refugees while the center-fet Social Democrat Party says, ‘The Number of Immigrants Has To Fall’. Close Quarters Asylum Shelters in Germany Struggle with Violence. Looming Doubts Merkel’s Grip on Refugee Crisis May Be Slipping as her popularity is plummeting. Germans are increasingly scared and they better be scared. They have tormented and killed in the name of ethnic cleansing to an amazing brutal degree under the Nazis and now they are doing the exact reverse which is typical of the German mindset: one extreme to the other bouncing back and forth tirelessly, wrecking everything in sight while doing this.

Protesters fill Berlin streets to demonstrate against Europe-US TTIP trade deal. The right wing backlash will be ugly. The liberals made a total mess in Germany. Merkel will be kicked out soon.
MOMENT OF EXPLOSION OF A BOMB IN ANKARA, TURKEY – YouTube: the video shows the celebration in the streets, all very peaceful and innocent. Turkey bomb: Almost 100 dead after attack in Ankara – BBC News: hundreds are injured. The ISIS monsters are claiming they did it but we don’t know if that is a lie. The fact is, the Kurds and the Sunni rulers of Turkey are at war with each other and it will be very much more bloody after this. Meanwhile, NATO wants Turkey to attack Russian jets and harry them. This is also very insane.
China condemns terrorist bombings in Ankara, Turkey but the Police crack down on mourners after bomb blasts rock Turkish capital because the government wishes to destroy the Kurdish freedom party.
Meanwhile, the continuing disaster in Syria: UK still seeking to conduct Syria airstrikes, says Michael Fallon in London. Yes, we are now going to openly attack the Syrian military which now has a powerful protector. No Gaddafi nonsense here, the ruler of Syria knows the US intends to murder him. Putin wants him to be alive, well and keeping Syria strong. Israel, on the other hand, wants Assad dead and Syria turned into the sort of ruins such as Libya or chained up like Egypt.
