Reported circumstances of the deathly accident of Austrian politician Joerg Haider aren't consistent at all. The contradictions remind of German politician Uwe Barschel's death who died 1987 in a Geneva hotel apartment, officially and stubbornly declared as suicide by police, politics and judiciary - without final evidence. A few days ago an expert named Harald Weinlaender refers to new findings that Haider's car did not overturn even though this had been one fundamental paradigm for the explanation of the massive destructions the car suffered. Now the destruction theory is pivoting around a mysterious hydrant which Haider's car should have been crashed into. This hydrant, however, has never been shown in a photo to the public. The disappearance of Haiders wristwatch, of the registration plates, of the headlamps, the loss of both doors on driver's side remain unexplained - unless the hydrant is a being with devilish intelligence, as shown here. Caption: prime suspect: hydrant -- desperately sought.

Renewable Energies and Warmth law passes German federal cabinet and waits for approval by parliament Bundestag. Every law that is designed to protect earth climate has hidden and obvious beneficiaries - the producers of insulating material, solar cells and wind-driven generators belong to the latter. It is a politically mighty group that has the potential to create pressure on every single member of parliament who argues against these energy laws. The deeper sense of political correctness ideology is that there is no difficulty to find severe pc-offenses in anybody's past (perhaps a quote, perhaps any contact or trivial everyday-life action). By citing/falsifying/perverting this it's mere child's play to compromise any inobedient coeval. If this should be a member of parliament, he/she will look no longer affordable for such a position. So, members of parliaments, you better listen to what the inner party is telling you to vote for. Caption: Still in lobbyism preparation: ready-to-wear-fashion for the german taxpayer.

Off the Somalian coast  indigenous pirates are operating more and more impudent. Recently even a super tankship was captured by them and now they claim a two-digit million dollar amount as a ransom. German navy is there, but is only allowed to monitor and displace pirates if possible and necessary. Politicians in Berlin say navy soldiers may not detain any pirates because this was a police job only. Leading political personnel and military personnel seemingly are in the first line afraid of loosing their career, afraid that they could be publicly accused of breaking written oder unwritten laws when one pirate should get bodily or materially damaged.

Federal chancellor Merkel and some governors of German federal states make a splash of securing endangered workplaces at Opel car factories, a General Motors subsidiary. Confer caricature as of 20081118. When some 400 small and medium enterprises pass away over a few years and 100'000 workers are laid off there is no political nervosity at all. But if there are 100'000 jobs at one time at stake, politicians can't be busy enough to present themselves as saviors. All principles of market and competition are forgotten when they think they can earn easily some voter's sympathies paid with taxpayer's money. A few years ago then-chancellor Schroeder tried the same in the cases of Babcock and Holzmann, which were private limited companies. Both were temporarily saved in a big political presentation but went nevertheless into bankruptcy a short time later. Shown here is governor of Hesse, Roland Koch. 1.)

Central council of jews in Germany repeatedly caused an uproar when prominent persons used some words in public that have a connotation with Holocaust, even if those speakers didn't mean that connotation. Council even goes so far as to emphasize that certain words shouldn't be used especially in november because of the widespread crimes committed against Jews on november 9th, 1938. Politicians who went into this trap were repeatedly demanded to resign from their posts on that account. It seems as if it is wished to prescribe a feasible thesaurus of German language to Germans, seen as little children. Moreover, it seems as if it is wished that Germans should behave like children and ask council first before they choose not knowingly any German words that may have been used by national socialists. Thus an atmosphere is created in which anybody at any time can be incriminated of using nazi words when he dares to use German day-to-day language.

Federal government tries to grant relief to crisis-shaken german automobile industry by lowering the taxation of car-ownership. Its assumption: this may be an incentive for customers to buy more cars. Unfortunately, the government, as generally known a coalition of ever-quarreling christ-democrats and social-democrats, is notoriously unable  to stick to a regulation that once is presented to the public. Rather this government takes it into revision again and finally the customer does not buy a new car as he is deeply unsettled about how long any new regulation will last.

 Governor of federal state of Lower Saxony, Christian Wulff, takes part in a TV discussion and defends the high wages of managers: I find, if somebody saves tens of thousands of jobs and pays millions of taxes, one should not spread pogrom-mood against him. The central council of jews in Germany attacks Wulff thereafter with reproach of unjust comparison in respect of German Holocaust. Even his resignation is demanded. Many politicians and media supported this accusation, and Wulff had to make an apology. Thorough research for more sources of citing German word 'Pogromstimmung' shows that it is broadly used in very different contexts. In fact, the use of this word is semantically not specific for the sufferings of jews in history only, the accusations against Wulff are therefore not justified and, accordingly,  other, earlier users of this word were not reprimanded by councils of jews. Text shows several citations using the word pogrom-mood found on internet today. Interestingly, a swiss source uses it even for the persecution of 60.000 christs by aggressive Hindus in India. Caption: You downplay jewish sufferings, Mr Wulff! You should resign.

After social democrat Andrea Ypsilanti's attempt of being elected as governor of German federal state Hesse with a one-vote-majority ended in a desaster, left politicians and media people are very keen on calling names the four social democrats' members of parliament that refused to support Ypsilanti (Carmen Everts, Silke Tesch, Dagmar Metzger, Jürgen Walter). They did so because of Y.'s plan to cooperate with the fraction of the extreme left despite her explicit promises given in her election campaign not to do so.

Reported circumstances of the deathly accident of Austrian politician Joerg Haider aren't consistent at all. The contradictions remind of German politician Uwe Barschel's death who died 1987 in a Geneva hotel apartment, officially and stubbornly declared as suicide by police, politics and judiciary - without final evidence. Spoken text: Haider's car crashed with this part against a traffic sign and a signpost, but both those were given the creeps by a right wing populist's bumper and left therefore no imprint on it. Due to nausea, too, both doors on driver's side dissolved themselves just before the car crashed against a hydrant and a concrete pillar. That's why they landed later nearly undamaged on the street behind the car. Caption: Concrete pillar, hydrant and car's registration plates fled then because of nausea, therefore a close-up photo of them never could be produced.

 Designated new chairman of Bavaria's CSU party and designated candidate for the chair of federal state of Bavaria's governor, Horst Seehofer, kicks finance minister Erwin Huber. The time in office of the aforementioned was the period in which the financial desaster of Bavarias state-bank, the BayernLB, bit by bit became apparent to the public. As it seems, Huber always knew more about the dimensions of the crisis than he publicly admitted, especially in advance of recent Bavarian elections. As long as he was in office, the new Bavarian leader Seehofer would have had a good scapegoat in his person for every new problem that emerged at BayernLB. Now that he is about to leave Bavaria's government Seehofer himself will be taken responsible for all new scandals that possibly will happen. In background: BavariaLB-crisis mountains.

Caption: Is your sense of humour politically correct? Text on left side: Agitation! Racism! Stuermer-style! Hate crime! -- Der Stuermer (roughly: the raider) was a disgusting anti-semitic, propagandistic periodical that was published by a certain Julius Streicher during nazi era in Germany. Therein often caricatures were shown with the intention to stir up the flames of hatred against Jews. This is the setting on which nowadays some people refer to the Stuermer always when being annoyed by a caricature they don't like. This is bad and slurring practice because it means to accuse the cartoonist of wishing or propagating the annihilation of people he drew - in a way the nazis did with their victims. There is in fact no evidence for this claim even if a cartoonist draws somebody in a very defamiliarizing way. Only if a nazi-like regime already exists there can be caricatures that have dangerous and hate-mongering features. Look at Iran's denying-the-holocaust-cartoon-competition. Where there is freedom of speech and thought no caricature should be named a hate-crime, because it can be discussed and frankly named outlandish if necessary. No reader or critic of the Stuermer had had that oppurtunity in those awful nazi days.

Politicians talking about excesses of capitalism referring to global financial crisis are tacit on the little thing that their state banks for years took advantage of very good interest rates when being invested in American housing derivates. These banks therefore again and again were able to transfer billions of Euros into the fiscal budgets of governments. At those times scarcely one of these persons made any public remark on the dangers and risks that were attached to collateralized debt obligations. Instead, they told their fiscal officers to go with god and bring home the money. Suddenly, as the situation has changed and crisis is evident, two big scapegoats are needed in Germany: The US financial system on the one hand, and capitalism on the other. Sign on burning house: Here a quick extra-billion for your budget. Small sign underneath: for regular customers. Balloons: The yankees ... do have houses ... that are really bad!

Austrian politician Joerg Haider dies in an accident south of Klagenfurt city. German media still after his death put very much value on calling him controversial and a  right-wing populist, which is a derogative indication of a person who untruthfully convinces people with simplified descriptions of reality and with prejudices. Remarkably enough it is part of political business in general, of all political parties, to inform with an inherent tendency towards one's own political advantage. Every german democratic party already has called another to be populistic when the latter dealt with a problem in a way that wasn't accepted by the other, as a matter of course on the political left side, too. It is, in fact, extremely populistic when the established parties create fear with hint on a supposed human fault when it comes to climate change and thereafter present themselves as the only ones who are able to curb it - taking the money of taxpayers. If populistic means "not differentiated enough" the use of this term for calling someone names is populistic by itself. Petrus at heaven's gate speaks on the phone, caption: Just a moment please, I note down. Right-wing pop... does one spell that with an o or an u? On sign: media obituary telephones.

Text reads: The political left is a church. As such it doesn't equal to those churches that derived from christianity and therefore were somehow open for the free will, but it equals Islam. Like Islam it takes itself for kissed by a god who holds the good and the truth as his own property. Like Islam it never acknowledges its fault and its mistakes. Like Islam it demands a world after its own vision, a society based upon the lines of its prophet Karl Marx. Like Islam it enslaves its own partisans, intimidates them, stupefies them even when they are intelligent. Like Islam it doesn't accept that you think the other way and when you do so, it despises you. It asperses you, draws you into trial, punishes you, and if Koran or rather the party orders to kill you, it will shoot you. (...) Like Islam, finally, the political left is anti-western. (...) Socialism bases itself upon collectivism. Collectivism turns down individualism. And whoever turns down individualism at the same time is turning down western culture.

The unions want to preserve this law, the EU wants to abolish it and already has threatened Germany with a billions-of-Euro-fine if German laws aren't modified this way. Merkel's CDU is step by step tending to the left.

The goods of democracy and open societies seen as shy deers, killed by a left-extremist stoning mob in Cologne on September 20th, 2008. The anti-islamization demonstration was finally forbidden by police as violence from the left protesters came to extremes. Politics, media and unions accompanied these incidents with malicious comments and stupid announcements that supposedly democracy had won a victory. On deers: Freedom of speech, freedom of assembly, human rights, equality under law, protection against malicious gossip, nonviolence. Text from horns: well done, you civil and democratic force!

Many German journalists covering the riots against the Anti-Islamization-Congress in Cologne choose an astounding spiteful style of language when it comes to opponents of islamization in Germany and Europe.

A demonstration of people who are worried about islamization tendencies in Europe is to take place in Cologne. Already before beginning the participants are massively aspersed as being national-socialist, as being morally on one level with Hitler and being generally hostile against strangers. In propagating this illusion, leftist offenders feel encouraged and legitimized to throw stones against human beings they dislike. Local and regional politicians (Schramma, Ruettgers) support this unrealistic view of demonstrators as they mingle the words "political right" with "rightist extremism" purposely. On signs of attackers: non-leftist plus non-muslim equals nazi -- only a dead opposer of mosque erection is a good opposer of mosque erection -- we are the good ones --peace! -- all we bring is love and pleasure -- kill all who insult islam! On flower: freedom of speech. Caption: Observe the "good ones" carefully - and act then in the opposite sense.

Resignation of social democrat's chairman, Kurt Beck (depicted left). He complains that media had falsely reported the decision-process of finding a SPD-candidate for chancellorship in coming elections in 2009. Following the media Beck was forced to accept Frank-Walter Steinmeier (right) as candidate whereas Beck himself puts much value on his version that he decided voluntarily for Steinmeier. This case had, according to Beck, irreparably damaged his authority as a chairman. Furthermore his proposal for Steinmeier as successor in chairholding was turned down in SPD's leading group. Successor will be his pre-predecessor as SPD-chairman, Franz Muentefering (middle). Decisive factor for Becks resignation probably are the very bad opinion polls of SPD party during the last months. Spoken text: Look where you are standing ... Caption: Finally fallen yet.

Nobel laureates in economics meet in Lindau on Bodensee, Germany. They complain that macroeconomic models produced ever since have little to do with reality, are too simplified.

Small restaurants and pubs with only one small guest room are now legitimized again to permit smoking to their guests.

German media do their best in propagating their view to the german public that Obama was the best, the one and only candidate for US presidency, especially during his visit to Berlin. Every remark, every encounter, every gesture is reported in hooray-style on online-live-tickers.

1987 retreated prime minister of federal state Schleswig-Holstein Uwe Barschel was found dead in a bathtub of Geneve Hotel Beau Rivage. During the following years the cause of his death was never unambiguosly determined. The charge was dropped in 1998. The examining district attorney, Heinrich Wille, uttered repeatedly that there were adequate hints for assuming murder crime. In 2007 he intended to publish a book with his findings. His superior officer, Erhard Rex, forbad this publication. He argued that Wille was not permitted to make private money with a book by using knowledge he gained while being in public service. Wille seeked for judicial help in order to legally circumvent Rex' ban. This legal process found its end today when the highest german court, the Bundesverfassungsgericht (BVG) in Karlsruhe, refused to accept Wille's petition.
