‘Refugees NOT welcome’ as 66% of Germans turn on Merkel over migrants
ByPAMELA GELLER on August 22, 2016
She should be removed from office. Now. She is destroying Germany and Europe. Anyone in Germany who wants Germany to survive as a free nation should be working to make sure she is removed from office by whatever means the German constitution allows.

“‘Refugees NOT welcome’ as 66% of Germans turn on Merkel over migrants”, by Paul Christian, UK Express, August 19, 2016:

In a nightmare scenario for German chancellor Angela Merkel, her oft-repeated phrase “we can do it”, in relation to absorbing hundreds of thousands of migrants, has been widely derided.

A YouGov tracker poll revealed how two out of three Germans don’t agree with the phrase, which now haunts Mrs Merkel, as the country creaks under the pressure of waves of newcomers.

Political opponents like the anti-immigration party Alternative for Germany (AfD), have also thrown the soundbite back in her face and garnered huge numbers of new supporters in the process.

A YouGov poll showed how 66 per cent of those polled did not agree with Merkel’s boast, up from 51 percent last September.

The growing resentment towards the German leader could threaten her grip on power, with elections set for autumn next year.

As her authority ebbed away Mrs Merkel was even criticised from within her own Christian Democrats party, with MEP Karl-Georg Wellmann saying: “Many of our voters understand it as if we could, indefinitely, continue to take in more people.

“Chancellor Merkel might not even mean to say that, but this is how it’s being perceived — and that’s why people I meet in my constituency tell me that they are just sick of hearing that sentence.”

AfD deputy leader Alexander Gauland received a rapturous reception at a rally in August last year when he yelled: “We don’t want to do this, at all.”

At the time the party was polling at just three per cent, by June this year it had surged to 14 per cent.

The inability of Germany to integrate the influx has also caused concern, with the shock revelation this week that the top 30 German companies had employed just 54 migrants.

More than one million migrants arrived in Germany last year, with a third of them refugees from Syria.

Merkel has increasingly come under fire for her immigration policies which have seen around 16,000 refugees arrive in Germany every month.

She has faced a backlash and seen her popularity among voters nosedive, with many blaming her open door refugee policy for a spate of terror attacks in Germany…

Germans told to stockpile food and water for civil defence

Germans told to stockpile food and water for civil defence

Bottled water in Munich: Terror attacks have fuelled concern about national security
For the first time since the Cold War the German government is advising citizens to stockpile food and water for use in a national emergency.
Some opposition MPs said the new civil defence concept, to go before ministers on Wednesday, was scaremongering.
Citizens are advised to store enough food to last them 10 days, because initially a disaster might put national emergency services beyond reach.
Five days' water - two litres (half a gallon) per person daily - is advised.
The German news website Frankfurter Allgemeine (FAZ) said the new concept was set out in a 69-page German Interior Ministry document.
The document said "an attack on German territory, requiring conventional defence of the nation, is unlikely". But, it said, a major security threat to the nation in future could not be ruled out, so civil defence measures were necessary.
Soon, Germans began tweeting ironically under the hashtag "Hamsterkaeufe" (panic-buying).

"#Panic-buying: This is what it'll look like 2 hours after the supermarkets open," said one tweet
Interior Minister Thomas de Maiziere told a group of schoolchildren that Germany must be prepared to react if water or food reserves were poisoned, or if oil and gas supplies were interrupted.
The parliamentary head of the left-wing Die Linke party, Dietmar Bartsch, criticised the move, saying "you can completely unsettle people with yet another round of proposals, such as hoarding supplies".
The Greens' deputy parliamentary leader, Konstantin von Notz, said it was sensible to update civil defence advice which had not been touched since 1995.
But he warned against mixing up possible military or terrorist scenarios, saying "I can't see any attack scenario that merits a stockpiling of supplies by the population".
Germany's civil defence: Cold War and now

About 2,000 public bunkers and shelters were built in West Germany, with federal funding (former East Germany had its own communist network of shelters)
There was a wide mix of shelters - eg in garages, schools, private cellars
Special government nuclear bunker was built in Bad Neuenahr-Ahrweiler, 30km (19 miles) from Bonn
Law says Cold War-era shelters must not be converted into new types of building
Germany still has stockpiles of food - eg milk powder and beans - at secret locations, for a national emergency
Inventories are regularly checked and renewed
