Dumb American lefties dubbed Merkel the leader of the free world. Things look rather different to the rest of Europe, right or left.

Forget the time that Merkel decided to open Europe wide to an invasion with few parallels in recent history. In the EU, France and the UK balanced out German power. Now the Brits are headed for the exit and that leaves France and its weak new leader.

Merkel has already begun throwing her weight around and acting like the leader of Europe as a whole. It’s why European leaders are far more worried about her than President Trump. Forget all the media attempts to sabotage Trump’s visit. European leaders will despise him, just as they despised Bush and Reagan. And, in private, they weren’t too respectful of Obama and Clinton either. Sneering at America is an old game in Europe. But America is the only other balancing force against Germany. American intervention stopped Germany twice. And no one has forgotten it.

European leaders may hold America in contempt, but they also know that we’re not threat to them. And if they have to live with a dominant partner, better a generous one like Uncle Sam than a cheap and mean one like Auntie Angela. And that’s even if she doesn’t invite a few million Afghans, Iraqis, Pakistanis, Syrians and some of their Libyan best friends to trash their country.


  1. Actually, Merkel seemed to forget that America and Britain ‘corrected’ Germany’s really bad decision process in the past – twice.

    What Merkel said, that Britain and America can no longer be trusted was appalling and offensive on so many levels and deserved far greater slap down than it got.

    She is a pig. and as a member of the Global neo-communist, She proved that you can take the girl out of the Stassi, but you can’t take the Stassi out of the girl.

    Both America and Britain did the correct action, once again. We’ ll see how the communist get on with out the big money coming in from the UK and US.
