German police invaded a surplus Cold War bunker which had been converted to datacenter use over allegations that the operators were collaborating with child pornographers, darknet drug dealers, etc (archived). The German collaboration allegations are at the core of the case, because under German law without active collaboration the service providers are sheltered from liability connected to whatever their customers may or may not be doing. This datacenter operation had been harassed by pseudo-statal organizations including the MPAA and Spamhaus from its inception through its capture. The local police commanders managed to assemble 600 armed conscripts to capture their target.
As the slow US withdrawal of troops from Syria continues to take shape, Germany has defied US orders to deploy the Wehrmacht to Syria and continue the ambiguous mission undertaken by US meddlers (archived). In the early years of the Hussein Bahamas administration insisted there would be no US ground troops in Syria, but after his re-election the ongoing accumulation of US materiel and personnel changed the dialogue to "Of course there are US troops in Syria" without any dialogue on whether there should be. Democratically elected US president Donald Trump has tried several times to withdraw the US from Syria, but folded against pressure from his subordinates and European allies including the French Despot Macron. They all insist "regime change" in Syria is still a viable and worthy purpose to pursue despite democratically elected Syrian President Assad's hold on power appearing firmer than ever.
Görlitzer Park has been carved to pieces by parkworkers using pink spray paint to create designated zones for migrant drug dealers to vend their wares (archived). This clear capitulation to asylum seeking drugs gangs follow ineffective efforts by local law enforcement to clear the park for local enjoyment. Park manager Cengiz Demirci who invented this "practical" scheme is certain it could be an even greater success if the "authorities" that failed to clear the drug market out of the park would simply issue vender permits to the drug gangs. The spray painted pink boxes appear to have gone unnoticed by the drug merchants who seem to still be occupying their normal posts near the park entrances.
Germany's domestic spy agency the BfV is raising alarms over a growing prepping fad which these secret police are presenting as a "undergroung far-right" threat to zher democracy (archived). That some people in Germany are stockpiling food, water, firearms, and other supplies as well as practicing in their use out of a fear that Germany could go to shit is apparently a problem for Zher Merkel's snitches.
As French Despot Macron continues gassing his own people, Yellow Jackets continue striking at the structures supporting the despot. Yellow Jackets and parties sympathetic to their cause have crippled more than 60 percent of the remote "speed trap" cameras used to control French drivers and enforce a national 80 km/hour speed limit on rural roads imposed last summer (archived).
With his apparatus of oppression under ongoing assualt by the French people, Macron is planning to sign a treaty with Germany further integrating the two in Aaachen on January 22nd (archived). The treaty will lay out a path for unifying France and Germany militarily while committing France to advance a number of positions in Germany's interest including a push to award Germany a permanent seat on the UN security council.1
Angela Merkel and numerous other German politicans have found information which they mistakenly thought was private is now available online (archived).
Seven year veteran of Germany's Der Spiegel Claas Relotius was fired after the news came out the fellow didn't much care to do reporting or journalism and had simply been fabricating stories and winning awards for doing it. As recently as December 3rd of this year Relotius was lauded by his peers as THE German reporter of the year:
The jury for the 2018 German Reporter Award was once again of the opinion that he had written the best feature story of the year, this one about a Syrian boy who lived with the belief that he had contributed to the country's civil war through a graffito he had daubed onto a wall in Daraa. The jurors praised the article for its "unparalleled lightness, intimacy and relevance that is never silent regarding the sources on which it is based."
And in Der Spiegel's own telling:
It has now become clear that Claas Relotius, 33 years old, one of DER SPIEGEL's best writers, winner of multiple awards and a journalistic idol of his generation, is neither a reporter nor a journalist. Rather, he produces beautifully narrated fiction. Truth and lies are mixed together in his articles and some, at least according to him, were even cleanly reported and free of fabrication. Others, he admits, were embellished with fudged quotes and other made-up facts. Still others were entirely fabricated.
Relotius and Der Spiegel's fraud were undone by a woman from rural Arizona who took issue with a report slandering a local US border integrity activism group she is afflilated with. As per their usual modus operandi, Relotius fabricated a fiction demonizing bloodthirsty nationalist vigilanties while Der Spiegel happily published the creative writing exercise instead as "truth from the front lines."
After a German court case where a complaintant sought to change the gender line on their birth registry entry from "female", the court legislated and the parliament implemented the addition of a third "diverse" sex category in the registry (archived).
Germany's Angela Merkel has begun advertising her plan to escape her ruinous political career in these changing, great again times. Her exit will begin this December where she will not seek another term as chairzher of her party and continue through 2021 when she will not seek another term as chancellor. Of course she could lose the chancellorship earlier if her coalition collapses under the weight of the messes she wrought.
