    Having covered Europe, and Germany in particular, since the day Chancellor Angela Merkel opened the continent to mass migration in the autumn of 2015, I often feel like a chronicler of doom. The multicultural utopia promised by the EU politicians and the media talking-heads has made way for the nightmare of Islamic terrorism, mass sexual assaults, and knife crimes of epidemic proportions. This year was no different. The compilation of my 2019 posts below reflects the grim reality that mainstream media chooses to deny.

    Germans regard U.S. President Donald Trump to be the "greatest threat to world peace," a latest YouGov poll shows. About 41 percent of German respondents picked U.S. President as most dangerous from a list of world leaders which included Iran's Islamic tyrant Ayatollah Khamenei, North Korean dictator Kim Jong Un, Communist China's Xi Jinping, and Russia's Vladimir Putin. More than 2000 Germans were polled for the survey.

    German Interior Minister Horst Seehofer warned that the country could soon be overwhelmed by a refugee wave more significant than the one in 2015. "We need to do more to help our European partners with controls at the EU's external borders. We’ve left them alone for too long," Seehofer said during a visit to Turkey. "If we don’t do this, we’ll experience a wave of refugees like in 2015 - or perhaps an even larger one."

    Germany will ramp up border checks to stop illegal immigrants, German Interior Minister Horst Seehofer announced. The move comes after the country's right-wing Alternative for Germany (AfD) made big gains in the last month's regional elections. Berlin "simply can't get a grip" on illegal immigration, German newspaper Bild claimed. "The problem has aggravated as more and more Syrian refugees cross over from Turkey into the EU," the newspaper reported on Sunday, "The situation in cramped refugees camps in Greece is dramatic. German government fears that many of the migrants could try to get to Germany."

    The U.S. Ambassador to Berlin, Richard Grenell, has urged Germany to ban the Islamist terror organization Hezbollah from the country. Writing in the German newspaper Die Welt, the envoy called on Chancellor Angela Merkel's government to outlaw the Iran-backed terrorist group that has been "murdering innocent people from Lebanon to Syria, Thailand, Bulgaria, Spain and Argentina" for 37 years.

    Germany is heading into a recession, a report released by Chancellor Angela Merkel's office said. The economists working at the Chancellor's office see Germany technically in a recession given the country's negative growth in two successive quarters, the German weekly Der Spiegel reported. Europe's largest economy is expected to contract between July and September, as it did in the second quarter.
