    Looks like the whole Brexit movement is taking hold all over the world.

    Trump is an egotistical moron whose only chance of winning his to shut his stupid mouth and follow the scripts his campaign gives him to the letter from here on out.

    There, that saves me the trouble of having to follow yet another one of these threads.

    Protected turf? Lol. Dude, this election is going to be like every other in recent history: Solid blues will go for Hillary, solid red to Trump, with the decision ultimately coming down to just a handful of swing states. You can holler all you want, it won't matter. Cali is never going to Trump.

    The entire world if FED UP. Brexit, Merkel, middle east... all failures of the Left. The people have NEVER wanted change more and Trump is Change! Hillary is same old tired, very tired yesteryear policies. Never worked, no reason to keep trying.

    Not pro- or anti-AfD, but Merkel is a weak coward.

    Allegation of U.S. Spying on Merkel Puts Obama at Crossroads

    http://www.nytimes.com/2013/10/25/w...pying-on-merkel-puts-obama-at-crossroads.html

    The angry allegation by the German government that the National Security Agency monitored the cellphone of Chancellor Angela Merkel may force President Obama into making a choice he has avoided for years: whether to continue the age-old game of spying on America’s friends and risk undercutting cooperation with important partners in tracking terrorists, managing the global economy and slowing Iran’s nuclear program.

    The pressure to make such a choice builds each day, as some of the United States’ closest allies have demanded explanations from Washington after similar disclosures about the breadth and sophistication of American electronic spying. Inside the administration it has touched off behind-the-scenes recriminations between the White House and the intelligence agencies over how much detail was given to White House officials about which world leaders are being monitored.

    “This was colossally bad judgment — doing something because you can, instead of asking if you should,” said one career American official with long experience in Europe. A senior administration official declined to say what Mr. Obama knew or did not know about monitoring of Ms. Merkel’s phone, but said the president “doesn’t think we are in the right place.”​

    In Bavaria, Obama and Merkel take in the view

    http://www.cnn.com/2015/06/08/politics/barack-obama-angela-merkel-photo-germany-mountains/

    A photo captured Monday shows the president stretching out on a wooden bench, chatting with German Chancellor Angela Merkel with the jagged Bavarian Alps rising in the distance.

    Obama is closer to Merkel than almost any other world leader, and on Sunday praised her leadership on issues like climate change and the crisis in Ukraine.

    She, in turn, gave Obama a tour on the traditional village Krun, high in the mountains above Munich.​


    Merkel: “You’re spying on me—your best ally? It’s fine; I’m a weak coward. Spy away, friend Hoebama.”

    Right, because of course we all remember that George W. Bush, the man who started this whole moronic "war on terror", ran on the Democratic ticket :rolleyes:.

    The "people" you refer to don't want change. They want to be coddled, like a child scared that the monster under their bed is going to eat them. Trump tells them he'll take care of the monster and they believe him.

    Nothing you have posted here shows Merkel as a "weak coward". Do you have anything relevant to add?

    What I posted above is simple to understand, if you take the time to read it next time you might actually notice that I said ‘weak coward’ not “cheap coward.”

    I don't see the connection you're trying to make.

    Edit: I also don't see what this has to do with the Brexit.

    Obama spies on his “best friends” and illegally spies on 280,000,000+ Americans daily, that includes you. Merkel weakly took the spying, cowardly accepting it. Then it’s business as usual. Merkel’s a weak coward. Obama illegally spies on me and I loudly say **** OBAMA. Of course, I’m not a Merkel.

    Merkel deserves to lose to [insert political party].

    I'm sure you feel good about having the "inside info" on all these issues, but occasionally you might take a moment and realize how insane you sound. #themoreyouknow

    As far as I'm concerned: everybody that isn't outright against the AFD is supporting them and their heinous agenda, simple as that. Referencing Nazi-terminology and ideology? That crossed the line long ago.

    The funny thing is, although I do agree 100% that Merkel needs to be criticized for how she handled the refugee-crisis (too late too little) that is probably the only time I would actually defend her.

    And for the latest vote: Meck-Pom has to take in about 2% of the arriving refugees and seemingly didn't even achieve that. 2%. But they're probably the loudest to scream foul (among those crazy Saxons). Bunch of losers, seriously.

    Really, what did I say that’s “insane”? The NYT and CNN pieces on Obama spying on Merkel and Obama then chilling with Merkel? The 280,000,000+, according to NSA whistleblower Bill Binney? Me using services that are forced into cooperating in PRISM collection (Traitor Obama forced Apple into it), hence I am provably being illegally spied on? What is it that I said, that is “insane”? I’ll wait.

    #TheMoreYouKnow

    Yeah, it seems Obama-bots and Hill-bots don’t know much at all. Low information voters.

    I assume I'm an Obama-bot or Hill-bot by your estimation - and subsequently an idiot. Assuming you wanted to have a reasonable discussion on the issue(s) at hand, I would think that you'd use slightly less incendiary language in your posts. What, however, do I know - I'm evidently an idiot.

    Don't discuss with him - you'll end up dragging him down to your level and beat him with experience. :p

    Oh. You posed rhetorical questions...my mistake. I must have lost that in your tendency to post too many links and use snarky language. sorry about that.

    Would you prefer that she started a war, using drone strikes to murder thousands of innocent Americans? Hyperbole, yes. Point being Germany and the US are strong allies independent of spying. I imagine Merkel didn't want to incite public outrage. And let's be honest, the US spies on everyone and Germany likely does the same.

    And I think we can fairly say the government spies on us. For one thing spy implies we do not know they're spying. It usually implies they actually look at the information they are collecting. They may be collecting your information but unless you're a terrorist or into kiddie porn, nothing's happening.

    America's reaction to getting caught:

    There's probably a joke that goes around the world leaders who gets caught spying the most.

    Agreed. Although I think (and they certainly know) it's probably even more embarassing for those spied on since they have to somewhat keep a straigth face when openly condemning those actions (while, of course, doing next to nothing behind the curtain).

    "Ahaha, Angie, we got caught spying on you...what you gonna say about that! lol "

    "Ehrm, eh, well, stop doing that! *cough* No, really I mean that.."

    She is also losing support in Germany and the rest of Europe because of the attempted multi-pronged global "free trade" corporatist power grab.

    I just saw CDU at 33% and AfD at 12% in Germany still however.
