Embattled Merkel Backed by Schaeuble as Protest in Party Grows

Finance Minister Wolfgang Schaeuble rose to Angela Merkel’s defense as the embattled chancellor faces an organized protest by members of her party against keeping Germany open for refugees.

Schaeuble’s backing in a newspaper interview throws the weight of her most senior Cabinet member behind the chancellor after her approval rating slid to the lowest since 2011. At the same time, Schaeuble pressed Germany’s partners in the European Union to do more to secure the bloc’s outer border and sign off on 3 billion euros ($3.3 billion) in aid to Turkey, which is hosting more than 2 million Syrian refugees.

Lawmakers in Merkel’s Christian Democrat-led parliamentary bloc plan to hand in a letter at the chancellery on Monday demanding that she bar refugees arriving from other EU countries, according to a lawmaker involved in the drafting who asked not to identified because the letter isn’t public yet. While it’s unclear how many of Merkel’s 311 caucus members will sign up, the protest is focusing dissent that’s built up for months and has grown more public since mass sexual assaults in Cologne on New Year’s Eve.

  • Merkel invited them, so she needs to be brought up on Treason Charges and locked in the Hague and any idiot who takes up for her needs to be locked up too! Send all these animals to Merkel and let her take care of their urges to RAPE! Anyone who will have sex with a goat might be willing to take a step down the ladder and use Merkel to relive themselves with, depending on how hard up he is!

    What do you want to bet that the finance minister is doing the bidding of businessmen who are looking for cheap labor.
    Send that man into a room with 1000 rabid muslims. If he is alive at the end of the day, he won’t be backing immigration. If that does not work, send in his family.

    Merkel is friendly towards Obama. That should tell you all you need to know about her. She’s a pig.

    Merkel needs to be tossed out, how would she like to be raped?

      Elitist Bidlerbergs care nothing for the suffering of the common person unless they are using them to destabilize the country.
