The #stabbings in #Germany continue (deadly ones are but the tip of the iceberg): a 19-year old #German man was mortally stabbed (in the back) in the #PrenzlauerBerg-district of #Berlin on 2019-02-09. By, the perpetrator shouted "Hurensöhne"
.. shortly before the incident. If is to be believed, the victim did not answer the perpetrator's #provocations, rather tried to flee.

Relevant #context: and…. It is not clear what "dunkler Teint" means.
A telling piece of (dark!) satire which I found in the comments of…:

( I won't translate this, as this is too touchy a subject; I reproduce this for scientific purposes only, to give a sample of how people react to such reports. )

Today is the 79th #birthday of #German economist and writer Roland Baader(1940-2012), a proponent of the #AustrianSchool of #economics, an indefatigable defender of #liberalism and prophet of the dangers of creeping #socialism. In a sense, a secular Martin #Luther.
Under hashtags of the form #MDHP-𝑛 I will publish my translation of the following #obituary for Baader:
Gerd Habermann: 𝘔𝘪𝘵 𝘥𝘦𝘮 𝘏𝘢𝘮𝘮𝘦𝘳 𝘱𝘩𝘪𝘭𝘰𝘴𝘰𝘱𝘩𝘪𝘦𝘳𝘦𝘯.
Junge Freiheit Nr.3/12 (2012-01-13)
(published in pdf-form in…)
..The title of the above newspaper article has no DIRECT relation to Baader's work, rather is an #allusion to a subtitle of a book by Friedrich #Nietzsche (1844-1900), written when Nietzsche was at the verge of mentally collapsing. (Nietzsche was incapacitated from1889 onwards).

"Steht das Grundgesetz der Naturwissenschaft, dass jedesmal eine bestimmte Ursache mit einer bestimmten Wirkung verknüpft ist, nicht der Annahme einer frei wirkenden, geistigen Ursache, einer selbständigen Persönlichkeit im Wege?" My tr.: 'Does the basic law
.. of natural sciences according to which a designated effect is always connected to a designated cause not stand in the way of the assumption of a freely acting mental cause, of an autonomous personality?'

Remark. Seitz's expressions 'bestimmte Ursache' and 'bestimme Wirkung' .
.. pose serious problems for a translator (and they also may justifiably said to be careless philosophically): literally, this means
'determined cause'
'determined effect'.
Obviously, these would be infelicitous translations, in view of the semantical force carried by..

News about the topic of #Ankerkriminalität: . (A #German medical doctor, #JoachimTüncher died after having been stabbed in the head and torso on 2018-08-16 by a twenty-something #Somali #asylumseeker in #Offenburg(#BadenWürttemberg).)
Interesting detail:
.. During the #trial, the brother of the dead doctor reproaches the prosecution of not having pursued a hot lead having a #political dimension: the brother says that the victim had told him that some time before the killing, he had received a threatening phone call, apparently
.. some sort of vengeance for Tüncher's refusal to issue a medical certificate for (another)#asylumseeker(in order to prevent the latter's deportation).

Might this have been(this is pure #speculation) some kind of #hitjob/#contractkilling to cow German doctors into obedience?

Sometimes, the #German judiciary still can hand down severe judgments against #Muslims: today(2019-02-05), the suspected #murderer of #MireilleBold was sentenced to 'lebenslänglich' by a court in #Flensburg.

Thread on trump’s NAZI AGENDA:

Members in the world. I got out actively pursuing #Nazism about two years ago. I began training #DonaldTrump in 1997. I had known him for a while but he expressed interest in the #Nazi Movement to me in 1997.

A @BILD investigation shows the Russian Army is systematically using German-made folding propellers to run its military drone fleet.
By doing so, #Russia might have found a way to bypass the 2014 #Ukraine-related #EUsanctions for dual-use goods.…
The German companies "Graupner" & "aero-naut" were shocked to hear that their rotor blades are used in Russian military drones.
One CEO told @BILD “We have no intention at all of supporting this kind of use & will consider the extent to which we can take action against such use."
@BILD We found evidence, the #Russian drones with #German rotor blades were used to coordinate artillery fire on #Ukrainian troops since 2015 and are still used to breach Ukrainian air space in 2019.
The most recent downing of such drone - a Granat-2 - happened on January 23.

The deadliest sinking of a #ship in recorded #history appears to be the sinking of the 'Wilhelm Gustloff', a ship which for the most part carried #German #refugees. I will translate the text in the below image for you. It says:
'January 30 is boat-#refugee-memorial-day!
In no accident or (terror-)attack did ever die more people at sea [ I think that that qualification may even be omitted; e.g., 9/11 and Pearl Harbour COMBINED caused far fewer casualties LG,I]; people who only wanted to save their lives and who were actual refugees without
an alternative to what they were doing. On January 30, 1945 a Soviet submarine sunk the 'Wilhelm Gustloff' with more than 10^4 passengers on board; more than 9000 died in the icy #BalticSea.'

#Equities #SP500 was rallying and the bulls are cheering. The excuse seems to be, that Powell has blinked. Remember 2007-09? Fed started lowering rates by September 07. Yet that did not prevent Financial markets to decline hard until March 2009 #HZupdates
The thing is, that when liquidity #crunch snowball gets rolling, some announcement from #Fed will not do the job. Down the line, Fed will need to scramble (QE or the like) to fight USD shortage. My LT #SP500 model remains like this. Major Bear market ABC-structure. #HZupdates
I will not reveal my EW-count for #SP500 here. That is reserved for subscribers and buyers of Weekly Update. Only say, that we have not seen an impulse wave since Sept high. I expect a MAJOR decline to set in rather soon, taking us to my bottom of wave A from LT-chart. #HZupdates

A short thread on the significance of the #CDU election tomorrow in #Germany to determine #Merkel's successor as party leader [1/8]
The two front-runners are Annegret Kramp-Karrenbauer (AKK), the continuity candidate, and Friedrich Merz, who wants to take the party back towards the right. Jens Spahn, a younger right-wing contender, stands less of a chance [2/8]
Polls are of limited use in predicting who will win. Most are of CDU supporters, but the party leader will be chosen by a set of 1,001 CDU delegates in Hamburg. #AKK leads among supporters but #Merz may have the edge among the delegates [3/8]
