German Election Results?

Mutter Merkel did not do too well. As a senior persona and running for her 4th term , she and her CDU should have gotten at least 40% or more, so she could have formed a coalition with the Free Democratic Party as in the past; a clear majority would have been best. Germans are restless because of migrants and the stern Russophobia of her government.

The German media tried some Russian interference to discredit the AfD, but it did not work. Alternativa fur Duetschland did well, especially in former East Germany. SPD did poorly. Martin Schultz, the leader, said that the party will go into opposition. Smart move. Merkel will have to court the Free Democratic Party (right), Der Linke (left), and the Greens (Environmentalists).

SDP and AfD will be the opposition. They will want change to German economic and foreign policy. Despite being a wealthy country, Germany has 8 million people living in poverty, out of a population of 84 million. The status quo will no longer do. Even coalition partners will want change.

The Germans want change, and change they will get. Change on the migration policy, on Syria, Iran, Iraq, Afghanistan, and North Korea. The opposition will demand that sanctions against Russia be cancelled. The opposition will demand removal of nuclear weapons from the country and a Modus Vivendi with Russia. Germany will move to neutrality. France, Italy, Austria, the Czech Republic, Hungary, Greece,and Slovenia will join. Later, all of Europe will go neutral a la Switzerland. Britain will stay faithful to the US.

This massive shift will affect the policy of Africa and Latin America. The role of the dollar and the gold will be reversed. It will be very interesting.

German Election of September 24, 2017

The most important election of the key state of the E.U. is taking place tomorrow, September 24,2017, and the US mainstream media is giving it scant coverage. The elections are important because the results will direct or influence German geostrategic policy and orientation for the years to come

There are many parties in Germany: the Christian Democratic Union of chancellor Merkel, the Social Democratic Party, Der Link Party or the Left Party, the Free Democratic Party, the Greens, and the Alternativa fur Deutschland, aka an Alternative for Germany.

The Christian Democrats or CDU are leading. They may win plurality of the votes but no majority. The Social Democrats may gain plurality but no majority. Minor parties may play key roles in coalitions that may be formed which would govern Germany.

All minor parties are important, but two of them specifically. The Free Democrats of the right who formed many postwar coalitions with C.D.U. that ruled Germany. The other minor party is the Alternativa for Deutschland, or AfD considered extreme right with no members in the Bundestag, but is third in the polls.

Whatever garnitura comes to rule Germany, if Alternaiva fur Deutschland  wins seats in the Bundestag, it will become the most vocal opposition party in all of Germany. The AfD will demand an end to the US occupation of Germany, a modus vivendi with Russia, and the right to join the one belt,one road arrangement with China. Trade by rail system over Afro-Eurasia will avoid a possible US sea blockade. All this will be anathema to US geostrategic interests.

German elections are very important for the E.U. and the US.
