German business group: ‘Prepare for very hard Brexit’
Some Brexiteers still paddle this bizarr believe that the Germans will come to rescue the UK economy because, … cars? I would recommend to actually listen to Germans for a change. The reality is quite the opposite. During the last two year, while the UK is twiddling their thumbs, Germans were hard at work to remove the UK from its supply chains and balance sheets.
After the BuzzFeed scoop that Bannon has been in touch with Boris Johnson, it’s now been revealed he’s talking to Gove and Rees-Mogg too.
#ausgehetzt-Proteste in München
Eine Volksdemonstration gegen die Politik der CSU
22.07.2018 – In der Münchner Innenstadt sind Tausende Demonstranten
gegen den Populismus und die Flüchtlingspolitik der CSU auf der Straße
gegangen. Etwas 130 Organisationen, Vereine und Kulturstätten hatten zu
dem Protestmarsch aufgerufen.
Boris Johnson: “Fuck business!”
Businesses: “Fuck Britain!”
A recent poll by German television revealed that only 25% of Germans trust the US government. Slightly more, 30%, trust the Russian one. Reasonably low, but slightly worrying that trust in Russia seems on the rise, without any real reason for it. Neither Putin nor Russia has changed its politics.
One example; At a recent visit to Austria, Putin gave a rare interview to Austrian television (ORF). Unlike Trump he sounded very intelligent and indeed reasonable. One would be forgiven to think that our image of him is not entirely reasonable after all. That is until we have a look at how Russian State media has covered the interview and overall trip to Vienna:
#Russia’s state TV:
Dean of Moscow state University: “The EU is coming apart at the seams —thanks to American God & voters, Trump is smashing it with a sledgehammer. That’s why Putin says he isn’t trying to weaken the EU. Why would he bother? Trump is doing all the work for him.” pic.twitter.com/ot4siOyzAx

This refers to the interview given by Richard Grenell, Trump’s US Ambassador to Germany, to Breitbart I mentioned earlier.
I normally restrain from sharing links to Breitbart, but this is a bombshell: Interview to Breitbart by Ric Grenell, US Ambassador to Germany!
He says he will personally intervene in internal politics of Europe to empower anti-establishment conservatives.
Thereby directly contradicting the State Department line that the Trump administration is neutral.
p.s. Side note about the comment regarding Austrian chancellor Sebastian Kurz, there is a misinformation campaign running about him in the right wing media that started last year https://derstandard.at/2000066611577/Welle-an-dubiosen-prorussischen-Fake-News-ueber-Sebastian-Kurz The goal is not clear, but they try to make him look more anti-system than he really is. This is all fake news, and important to remember that Kurz ran the elections on a conservative, but distinguish pro EU platform. Unlike his coalition partner, the Freedom Party.
