Merkel to seek fourth term to defend threatened ‘values’

Angela MerkelBerlin – German Chancellor Angela Merkel said Sunday she would seek a fourth term in elections next year to defend democratic principles in the face of looming threats at home and abroad.

Predicting her toughest campaign to date, Merkel said the forces of populism as well as the uncertainty created by poll triumphs for Brexit and Donald Trump meant she had a “duty to serve my country”.

“We are facing struggles in Europe and internationally for our values and our interests and, simply put, for our way of life,” Merkel, 62, told reporters at the headquarters of her Christian Democratic Union (CDU) party.

“This election will be more difficult than any before it, at least not since national reunification” in 1990, she added, citing a strong “polarisation of our society”.

Merkel, the EU’s longest serving leader, said she had “endlessly” weighed her choice and knew that in “distinctly difficult, even insecure times”, many leaders were looking to her as a source of stability.

    Much like O’buma…she has set-back civilization to a more vulgar and violent society. She should step aside before she is shoved aside, and let real leaders lead us out of this darkness, which her and O’buma brought into our mist.

    This pathetic human is no better than Obama, and is big into the NWO scam, and like Obama loves her muslims and has allowed her people to suffer under the infestation og these gutter rats that are raping their women and kids! She’s already had 2 attempts on her life and has had to double her security, but she’s brought it own her self!! She’s finished!

    Ms. Merkel will be judged based on what she has done in office so far. I’m not sure how many Germans are happy with the influx of Muslim refugees or their demands for change in German culture.

    Merkel is on her way out. The German people have has enough of the Muslim Invasion, and they have had enough of being told what to do by the E U. They have also reached the point where the guilt trip of world war 2 is no longer a factor. In a meeting with Obama, Merkel said the following;

    Angela Merkel will work with Trump So Long As He Backs the ‘liberal world order

    U.S President Barack Obama backed German Chancellor Angela Merkel to continue fighting for the liberal world order, saying he would vote for her if he could.
