Karl-Theodor zu Guttenberg, the Plagiarist
#1
familiarize with germany's next chancellor,

[Image: 225px-Guttenberg-800.jpg]

Dr. Karl Theodor Maria Nikolaus Johann Jacob Philipp Franz Joseph Sylvester Freiherr von und zu Guttenberg. germany's by far most popular politician despite being the minister for defence, and we look warily at the military. never happened before. most popular had always been the foreign minister because he isn't involved in the internal affairs, but the fag holding the position right now is the most unpopular one for the first time ever since WW2.
guttenberg is so popular because he's been determinedly build up by germany's equivalent of foxnews, that's the big newspaper BILD. like foxnews successful due to its low standards, owned by a rich patriarch who loves to make politics. guttenberg also has a georgeous wife, ancestor of von bismarck, making herself famous by some charity work for raped kids and women. the new kennedys as a team.
i remember vividly a tv talk of zu guttenberg with another baron, von lambsdorff, minister for economy for many years. lovely to watch them patting each others back, assuring how good they are, and qualified to lead because of their blue blood, dedicated hard work for the common good, and high-mindedness.
well, maybe no longer, beacuse his record is clean no more. a few minor scandals, the state of things on the drill ship of the navy was not unlike those on the legendary bounty, and letters of soldiers in afghanistan had been opened and censored; but now it turns out that the baron's dissertation is a plagiat.

it also depends on the votes, and we still believe that votes determine politics, not wealth, noble birth, or god. as it happens, the conservatives lost more than 1/2 of their seats in the city state of hamburg last weekend, http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Hamburg_sta...tion,_2011 returning hamburg to the social democrats. not the baron is to blame of course, but the general incompetence of conservatives. meanwhile, the university of bayreuth deprived the baron of his dr. title yesterday. that was swift.

a nice showcase of the values of conservatives, lies and deceptions are perfectly legitimate for those people.

Karl Theodor Maria Nikolaus Johann Jacob Philipp Franz Joseph Sylvester Freiherr von und zu Guttenberg resigned from office today. merkel needs another defence minister, and chancellor hopeful. she made a big mistake stating in defence of her godson that she hired not an academic, but a capable politician. what caused an uproar amongst german scientists, which send her a petition signed by 30,000 scholars questioning how a man with no academic integrity could possibly possess political integrity? like that question was neccessary, he's right-wing after all. anyway, considerable damage for merkel and her gang of conservative thugs in this super elections year, more than half the states vote.

not alone like in hamburg recently, but teaming up with the greens they might take one or two more states in the west, and together with the left one more in the east. big problem for the cdu is that their minions, the fdp is significantly weakened as well. could drop from state parliaments if they don't take the 5% hurdle.

Government is necessary because people left unchecked will do evil.

the nucular fallout has arrived in germany. baden-wuerttemberg state gets the first green state premier ever, spd is the minor partner in the governing coalition. used to be the conservative heartland. in rhineland state lost the spd their majority, but the greens tripled their votes, returned to the parliament, and share the government. merkel is in deep shit, having lost three states in one year, amongst them the biggest one, north rhine-westphalia.

Quote:Merkel's party loses power in rich German state

STUTTGART, Germany (Reuters) – Chancellor Angela Merkel's conservatives lost power in a regional stronghold on Sunday, with early poll results showing the Greens, buoyed by Japan's nuclear crisis, surging to their first state premiership.

In Baden-Wuerttemberg state, where anti-nuclear sentiment has been mobilized by Japan's nuclear breakdown, the Greens and Social Democrats (SPD) were set to win 47.3 percent, eclipsing the Christian Democrats who held power there for six decades.

Merkel's CDU and their Free Democrat coalition partners, big backers of nuclear power, won a combined 44.3 percent, according to projections at 1800 GMT in the state of 11 million people.

Analysts said the loss would cause Merkel some headaches in her party, with many disconcerted by recent policy decisions; but they thought an immediate leadership challenge was unlikely.

"The horrible pictures from Japan and the horrible events in Japan was the main issue over the last two weeks," said defeated CDU state premier Stefan Mappus. "There was no other campaign topic and the winds from Berlin were also blowing against us."

The CDU, which has governed the state for 58 years, took 39.3 percent and the FDP 5. The Greens finished second with 24.2 percent and the SPD, their likely allies, took 23.2 percent.

"This is a historic victory," said Winfired Kretschmann, 62, the Greens leader in the state. "We will change things."

The Greens' 13 percent advance was mirrored in another state election on Sunday in Rhineland-Palatinate, where the SPD held onto power and was likely to form a coalition with the Greens.

SPD chairman Sigmar Gabriel called the vote a clear rejection of nuclear power: "This was a referendum against nuclear power and the people decided they don't want it."

FOREIGN EVENTS BLAMED

Economy Minister Rainer Bruedele from the FDP called his party's ejection from Rhineland-Palatinate's assembly a bitter defeat and blamed "events in Japan, war in Libya and the euro debate."

Last month Merkel's conservatives were ousted in Hamburg in a state election and lost control of North Rhine-Westphalia, Germany's most populous state, last May.

She has already lost her majority in the upper house of parliament, or Bundesrat, where the 16 states are represented, and further gains for the opposition mean her ability to pass some legislation will be severely limited.

Merkel's policy U-turns on nuclear power, military action in Libya and the euro zone debt crisis turned the closely-watched Baden-Wuerttenberg contest into a virtual referendum on the performance of her 1 1/2-year-old center-right government.

She abruptly shut down seven of Germany's 17 nuclear plants right after the disaster in Japan and put on ice plans to extend the use of atomic energy by 12 years from 2022 -- moves that voters and analysts described as a campaign ploy.

"I hope that the anti-nuclear movement will be strengthened across Europe with this election result," said Renate Stephan, 65, an accountant. "That was the main issue."

"This is the beginning of the end for Merkel," said Lienhard Bauer, a 53-year-old banker in Stuttgart. "I've been a CDU party member for more than 30 years but I didn't vote CDU this time."

Merkel could face some turbulence. After her SPD predecessor as chancellor, Gerhard Schroeder, lost North Rhine-Westphalia in 2005, he called a snap election and lost. But analysts believe she will quickly be able to steady her reeling party.

Anti-nuclear sentiment and criticism of Merkel's confused stance were big issues in a state where environmentalists were already mobilized by opposition to a major infrastructure program in the state capital, a railway project in Stuttgart.

we have to get used to a new phrase, 'green-red'. since times immemorial it had been 'red-green' because the sozis were always bigger. the greens however are the new conservatives. btw, their chairman is a turk. because every party now wants to get rid of nucular plants, we'll see cdu/green coalitions in the future.

the liberals got a new chairman, fag westerwelle retired after the fdp flew out of 3 state parliaments in four elections, and escaped this fate in the fourth by the skin of their teeth. continues as vice chancellor and foreign minister, though. the new fdp leader is this gentleman

a vietnamese, 38 years old. his new general secretary is only 32, so the board is dubbed as "boygroup". they are in real trouble, might even vanish for good. the platform was pro atom, and tax cuts for the rich, and they couldn't deliver that in times of bailouts and stimuli packages.

one more election in germany is due tomorrow, in the city state of bremen. governed continuously and sucessfully by the socialists since ww2, recently in coalition with the greens. the latest polls say that spd and greens will both win more votes, and the cdu be relegated to the third place for the first time ever in any election in germany. http://www.zeit.de/politik/deutschland/2...age-gruene

the conservatives have continually lost power and votes in europe - not just germany, and now they're shrinking to a mere fringe.
