German Defense Minister Ursula von der Leyen has demanded a stronger NATO presence in Eastern Europe. But that makes some in Chancellor Merkel's government uncomfortable. As the alliance moves to reassure eastern allies, Berlin considers its options. In last Monday's meeting of Christian Democratic Union (CDU) leaders in Berlin, the Angela Merkel spoke extensively about war and peace, including a detailed look at the Ukraine crisis. The chancellor also focused on her telephone conversations with Russian President Vladimir Putin as well as the role played by US President Barack Obama. When she then turned her attention to NATO, many expected a mild rebuke for Defense Minister Ursula von der Leyen. With her comments published in SPIEGEL a week ago, in which she urged NATO to show a greater presence on the alliance's external borders, von der Leyen dominated the German news cycle that weekend. Many interpreted her demand as a rhetorical escalation in the ongoing standoff with Russia and there was plenty of c ...

Germany's Schaeuble Defends Spenging Plan Germany's finance minister said Thursday that the 23 billion euros ($31 billion) in new spending the next coalition government plans without tax increases or new borrowing is "realistic but ambitious' as it will be financed from budget surpluses. "The priority measures for this legislative period, the next four years, are [expected to cost] EUR23 billion, and for that we have leeway, if we use the reserves that we always have in financial planning because we work cautiously," said the finance minister--a senior politician in Chancellor Angela Merkel's Christian Democratic Union--in a radio interview with Deutschlandfunk. "More [than EUR23.06 billion] can't be responsibly presented in a serious way, but this can be seriously presented," the minister said. "In recent years we always did better [than planned], there were always few debts and spending was lower than planned, which means this is a cautious, realistic but ambitious plan," Mr. Schaeuble said. Germany's t ...
Party leaders German Chancellor Angela Merkel (C) of the Christian Democratic Union (CDU), Horst Seehofer (R) of the Christian Social Union (CSU) and Sigmar Gabriel of the Social Democratic Party (SPD) hold signed copies of a preliminary agreement, which has still to be approved by the members of the SPD, in the Bundestag in Berlin, Nov. 27. REUTERS photo Angela Merkel's conservatives broke a party taboo on Nov. 27 in allowing Germans of foreign origin dual citizenship as part of a coalition deal with the Social Democrats, but Turkish nationals living in Germany said the planned reform did not go far enough. The conservatives have long opposed allowing people born in Germany to hold both German citizenship and that of another non-European Union country and it proved one of the most contentious issues in the talks on forming a new government. The country has some of the most stringent citizenship laws in Europe. In marathon coalition talks, both camps made concessions - the conservatives in allowing any w ...

German Greens mull new identity and coalition with Merkel * Greens hold exploratory talks with conservatives on Thursday * Elect new leader on Tuesday, could set tone for talks * Greens suffering identity crisis as come of age Germany's Greens will elect a new, more centrist parliamentary leader and hold talks with Angela Merkel's conservatives this week to explore prospects for what would be a landmark coalition with their former political arch enemies. "The chances of a coalition with the Greens have risen in recent days from 'theoretical' to 'conceivable'," conservative Environment Minister Peter Altmeier told Der Spiegel magazine over the weekend. Such a coalition was indeed long inconceivable for the Greens, who entered parliament in the 1980s with flower pots and jeans pursuing an anti-nuclear, left-wing agenda. SFor their part, Merkel's Christian Democratic Union (CDU) had once portrayed the Greens as dangerous radicals. Yet deep-rooted differences between the two camps have shrunk in recent years ...
OK, the first election Sunday is over, Sept. 15th was election for the Bavarian Parliament (Landtag) and the CSU (Christian Social Union) got the absolute majority and can rule for the next five years without having a coalition partner. Also at the same day there were elections for the Bezirkstag (one part of the local government of the 3rd and biggest local level in Bavaria; the state is divided in seven of them). And finally there were five constitutional revisions. After getting a majority in the parliament it is required for a constitutional revision that the Bavarian people agree to the bills to make them law. Now next Sunday (Sept. 22th) there will be elections to the Federal Parliament called Bundestag and it depends on the results of this election if Angela Merkel will be again Bundeskanzlerin (Federal Chancellor) or not. Quite thrilling what happens: the coalition partner of Merkel's party (called CDU = Christian Democratic Union) is the FDP and the FDP (= Free Democratic Party) was just kicked o ...
isn't the following just a bit naive? As if with their technological advances t& their devious ways (before y'all go on a rant I'm half German. . .the rest they conquered over the years. . .) the Germans haven't/aren't bugging their so-called "allies" even as we speak?! Hubris/arrogance @ work. . .looking for a negotiating edge. . . BAD SALZUFLEN, Germany (Reuters) - Germany's Angela Merkel said on Saturday that Europe should push ahead with free-trade negotiations with the United States next week while making sure that concerns about America's secret surveillance of its EU allies are not swept under the carpet. Though the German Chancellor told a political rally that free-trade talks are long overdue, she also said that the assistance of U.S. intelligence to thwart attacks on Germany in the past cannot justify American spying on the European Union. "Bugging is not what friends do. The Cold War is over," Merkel said at a meeting of her conservative Christian Democratic Union party in western Germany. Wit ...
Who the *** is Angela Merkel's Christian Democratic Union party, who says 'German is the most widely spoken language in European '. They want it used in European Parliament NO WAY. Europe is not the world and the world languages are ENGLISH SPAINISH AND MANDARIN. And I hope the first British member to use German in Europe Parliament is voted out by the British people. Remember we employ them to serve us not European members.
Bothered about world politics!!! Here's the glimpses Politics this week! David Cameron gave a big speech on Britain’s future relationship with the European Union. The prime minister called for a radically leaner EU and promised to negotiate a new settlement that will be put before British voters (if he wins an election in 2015) in a referendum that will offer an “in” or “out” option. Angela Merkel, the German Chancellor, said she wanted a “fair compromise”: “Germany, and I personally, want Britain to be an important part and an active member” of the EU, she said. In Germany Mrs Merkel’s Christian Democratic Union and its centre-right partners lost power in Lower Saxony, after the opposition Social Democrats and Greens narrowly won an election in the state (by just one seat).

German Propaganda In Polish Schools : Students graduating from German schools are illiterate when it comes to Eastern Europe," says Jörg-Dieter Gauger, a history professor at the University of Bonn whose works are mainly published by the Konrad Adenauer Stiftung, a think tank associated with Chancellor Angela Merkel's center-right Christian Democratic Union (CDU). Gauger complains that Germany's historical eastern territories -- which were home to major cultural and historical achievements, but now belong to Poland -- are hardly mentioned as having once belonged to Germany. He also thinks that school materials lack any "indication of regret over the loss of the eastern provinces," and he credits German textbook authors with having a "self-destructive approach" that has them constantly presenting Polish-German relations as a "story of victims and suffering." "...earning itself harsh criticism from Polish historians who felt that the text placed too much emphasis on the German resistance movement against H ...
Should This Worry Us ? Merkel Says : Multiculturalism has Failed in Germany In October 2010, German Chancellor, Angela Merkel, told a meeting of younger members of her conservative Christian Democratic Union (CDU) party at Potsdam that attempts to build a multicultural society in Germany had "utterly failed". She stated: "The concept that we are now living side by side and are happy about it does not work"; "we feel attached to the Christian concept of mankind, that is what defines us. Anyone who doesn't accept that is in the wrong place here." She continued to say that immigrants should integrate and adopt Germany's culture and values. This has added to a growing debate within Germany on the levels of immigration, its effect on Germany and the degree to which Muslim immigrants have integrated into German society.
