Major News Stories from German Economic News

Summaries of reports on three strategically important news-events:




German Minister: We do not want to see Russia crushed.

Germany’s Federal Minister Sigmar Gabriel has a surprisingly strong opposition to new sanctions against Russia. A few months ago Gabriel had tolerated them, but now he says that the isolation of Russia could even be “dangerous to the entire world.”

Russia proposes to EU: Say no to TTIP, yes to EEU.

Russia has presented a startling proposal to overcome the tensions with the EU: The EU should renounce the free trade agreement with the United States TTIP and enter into a partnership with the newly established Eurasian Economic Union instead. A free trade zone with its neighbors would make more sense than a deal with the US.

Soros: EU must take on new debt for a war against Russia.

The US investor George Soros urges Europe to a “war effort,” higher budget deficits to prepare for a war against Russia. Soros also calls for $ 20 billion in new loans from EU taxpayers for Ukraine.

This information has been presented as a response to readers in the United States who pay subscription-fees to The New York Times, Wall Street Journal, and other U.S. media, and who are seeking for an alternative to being deceived by them and by the U.S. aristocracy that own and control them — and to paying those ‘news’ sources for the privilege of being deceived by them. A trustworthy major news-site is necessary, and preferably one that doesn’t charge for access. German Economic News is available online without charge, and I have found it to be far more honest, much more reliable, than any major news-medium in the U.S.; and the three news-reports summarized above provide a fair introduction to it.

They publish in German, but in the new online world this makes little difference because anyone can read their reports translated automatically into English, in either or both of two different convenient ways:

(1) Google’s free chrome browser auto-translates from any major language, and therefore brings this newspaper to a computer translated automatically.


provides that same ability in any browser.


provides auto-translation of any selected excerpt.

Consequently, English-language readers no longer need to restrict themselves but now can access news-sources in any major world language. Readers no longer are required to stay mentally imprisoned by their given nation’s ‘news’ media, their given nation’s aristocracy who control them.

And one no longer needs to pay subscription-fees for censored and propagandistic ‘news’ that reinforces the lies from one’s own government (which represents the same aristocracy that control those ‘news’ media).
