Luxembourg City

The last few weeks have shown the European Union as the most useless institution in the world that supposedly otherwise matters.

As if to take advantage of the timing, the European Court of (In)Justice ruled today that the Eastern European countries that refused to take in “migrants” during the 2015 Hegira broke EU rules.

Collective yawn.

Of course, the Hegira itself was set off by one of Merkel’s bureaucratic flunkies sending a single tweet indicating a policy change within Germany, which itself broke EU rules.

Democrat National Convention postponed. Covid-19 the official reason, but I think the real reasons are that the party brass don’t want the Bernietards to do a ’68, and they also don’t want Biden delivering a gaffe-a-second acceptance speech.

European leaders warn coronavirus could lead to the breakup of their union

https://www.msn.com/en-us/news/world/european-leaders-warn-coronavirus-could-lead-to-the-breakup-of-their-union/ar-BB125QZz

BERLIN —The coronavirus pandemic, with its simultaneous health and economic crises, is deepening fault lines within Europe in a way some leaders fear could prove to be a final reckoning.

The cohesion of the European Union had been battered by Brexit, bruised by the political fallout from the 2015 migration surge and the 2008 financial crisis, and challenged by rising autocracy in the east that runs contrary to the professed ideals of the European project.

Now, if Europe’s leaders cannot chart a more united course, the project lies in what one of its architects described this week as “mortal danger.”

2015 and 2020, probably the two red letter years in what will be the history of the transition of the European Union from what it was (or was hoped to have become) before then, and whatever it will be after then.

Germans snitch on neighbours flouting virus rules, in echo of the Stasi past

https://news.trust.org/item/20200402160625-8y12u

BERLIN, April 2 (Reuters) – Law-abiding Germans are zealously helping police crack down on people flouting new social distancing rules aimed at slowing the spread of the coronavirus by reporting on strangers, neighbours and friends.

In a country where denunciation was commonplace under the Communists in East Germany and Hitler’s Nazis, police forces across the country are getting tip-offs on anything from “corona parties” to people driving to weekend cottages.

I’ve written before here that, if ten Americans and ten Germans are standing at a signalized crosswalk, and it’s obvious there are no cars coming for hours, the Americans will all cross, the Germans will wait for the walk light to go green. It’s way more a function of the deference to authority rather than any specific ideology of the left or right.

“Snitches get rewards”?? That’s not the rhyme I learned on Seasame Street.
I always thought some enterprising black mayor of an American Murder Capital City should run a “Snitches Get Bitches” campaign, with billboards and video ads of Teen Tyrone witnessing a drive-by, calling the po-leece tip line, then ending up with twerking hoes hanging all over him.

In Michigan, where the state’s population is 14% black, African Americans made up 35% of cases and 40% of deaths as of Friday morning. Detroit, where a majority of residents are black, has emerged as a hot spot with a high death toll. As has New Orleans. Louisiana has not published case breakdowns by race, but 40% of the state’s deaths have happened in Orleans Parish, where the majority of residents are black.

There also seems to be a genetic component that no one, except bloggers, is talking about. Southerners (Niggers, Spics, Camel Jockeys) seem to be more susceptible than Northerners. Even among Europeans, Nordics seem to be less susceptible than Mediterraneans. Why aren’t epidemiologists looking at this?

US snatches masks from Germany in act of ‘modern piracy’ – Berlin senator

https://www.rt.com/news/484935-us-takes-masks-germany/

With Covid-19 infections climbing, Washington has diverted shipments of vital protective masks from its allies in Germany and Canada to the US. A Berlin senator described the move as “modern piracy.”

A delivery of 200,000 masks left a 3M factory in China this week and arrived in Bangkok, Thailand, from where they were supposed to be sent to the German capital. The masks never got to Berlin, and police in the city told Der Tagesspiegel that the shipment was instead bound for the US. Berlin’s Senator for the Interior Andreas Geisel confirmed on Friday that the masks had been “confiscated.”

“We consider this an act of modern piracy. This is not how you deal with transatlantic partners,” Geisel said.

I place the odds at about 50-50 that within two years the pre-Euro domestic currencies that existed before the Euro but aren’t in use now will return to internal domestic usage, the Euro will only be a cooperative facilitator for them.
