German news show ponders Trump's murder; will they face charges?

Victor LaszloRebel Commentator
 

On a serious news program, a caller asks how President Donald Trump could be removed from office. Among the legal and procedural answers, one of the panelists suggest a “murder in the White House.”

In contrast, look at the kerfuffle after a German comedian joked about Turkey's president Erdogan, a true autocratic tyrant.

If a German comic who jokes about a foreign despot faces five years in prison, what should the penalty be for a news panelist who proposes murdering the U.S. president?

To the credit of the German government, there is a strong chance that its law on criminal prosecution for insults to a foreign head of state may be repealed, so comedian Jan Böhmermann may not face prosecution after all.

But does the example in the video above qualify as an insult?

Or as a suggestion?

As the second world war proved, anyone these bloodthirsty bastards dislike, their solution is death. They should have warrants issued and anytime they visit the USA they can answer for the threat.

I claim that the Stock Markets are up; the TSE and the Dow Jones.
Andrew Stephenson points out that U. S. Bonds are down trillions of dollars in the last two weeks.
The new President of the United States is a loose cannon, that is for sure.
Many clever people will make a quick profit on Trump’s becoming president.

Stifle was a word most used and associated with the sitcom All in the Family in the sixties. Stifle, Edith, Stifle! . But today it has a much more ominous and sinister connotation. Our governments are enacting laws to stifle our free speech in the name of protecting groups they think require special protection.
Western cultures exist because of free speech. Where free speech doesn’t exist, all the other advancements and freedoms don’t exist either. How much free speech exists in countries and societies where Islam is the dominate religion and government? Try to name one.

@jay Kelly….no that is foolish advice….the time to buy stocks is when the market has crashed. Just like the way the snakeoil peddlers have turned gold into a Ponzi scheme. You buy short….you sell long. Buying when prices are high is a sure way to get rained on.

The best investment right now would be in physical production capital assets…they will probably outlast their capital cost allowance and will defer your capital gains.

If you insist on buying percious metals the thing to do is buy Canadian Mint silver coins that are sold at face value…that is an investment that you CANNOT loose money on and there is some chance that speculative surge in silver price could one day make them more valuable….gold is a pool full of sharks and buying gold at long price is very foolish.

These days most bond transactions are done to create “paper losses” for tax advantage. There will be many investors buying discounted bonds as a way chalk losses that are not actual loss of money.

I have a business degree. I also screened applications for War Veterans Allowance which was a means tested income suppliment much like OAS/GIS. I have seen and am aquainted with people who have seven and eight figure net worth who qualify for these suppliments through clever fund management.

To get back to these five happy “appfel” in question, who may or may not be representative of the majority of German news media these days , it was interesting to to note that “spin” is “spinnen” in German… I do wonder how they are going to “spin” the results of the upcoming German presidential elections come February?… Ach Du Lieber!…

“Jay Kelly commented 33 mins ago
Glenn Craig, I say to you what I said to Yvette Mozol, the smart money is on the stock market. Dow Jones and the TSE are both up dramatically. Ideology is nice, but profits tell the tale. "

What profits are those? The stock market surge is entirely speculative and at least partially driven by the money fleeing from the toilet paper formerly known as American government bonds, which have lost trillions in value in the last two months.

How very SS of him to suggest that.

The answer is quite clear, unless you make a mockery of your other article titled “Support free speech, not sharia”. Although the rationalization differs subtly, free speech is free speech and is not conditional.

The potato face Merkel has to go. She has destroyed a gullible country that is uber-politically correct thanks to their WWII guilt.

Idiots! To suggest the removal or murder of Trump is both irresponsible and ignorant. If they wish to speculate on such matters, they should turn their attention to their own Merkel.

The Germans are still on a guilt trip over Hitler. Wake up Germany, for the Muslim Death Cult that you embrace will make Hitler look like Jesus Christ Himself, by the time they have finished their agenda for the German People.

You would do well to learn from Hitler, build a few death camps for Muslims only.

I am, of course not really serious, re the above, but I still think you should make yourselves aware of what is going on around you.

Remember, Merkel is a Communist.
