The smallest state of the Federal Republic of Germany, the Saarland, had elections today. The Landtag, the State Assembly or Diet was elected. It was the highest voter participation in over 20 years. The alt-right was beaten hard and passed the quorum only because the national non-socialist party didn't attend and endorsed the alt-right movement.

The electorate recognized the outcome of the US presidential election and decided it was time to take a stand for democracy and vote.

The silent people showed their faith in the constitution, in the human rights and in decency and dignity for all mankind and voted for the parties supporting the Geneva Convention and the rights of refugees. Over 90% of the voters did so. An overwhelming support.

Wahlverzicht der NPD (2012 1,4%) verhilft AfD zum Einzug in den saarländischen Landtag. Das aktuelle Ergebnis der AfD entspricht der Summe aus NPD und AfD bei den Kommunalwahlen 2014.

The nationalist party NPD withdrew from this year's election an assured the entry of alt-right movement AfD into the state parliament. The results of those two party from the last election 2014 sum up to the current result of the AfD. Without that the leftist coalition of the post-communist party Die Linke and the German socialist neo-cons SPD would have a majority and would rule the state in southwestern Germany the next five years.

That's the look German chancellor Angela Merkel gave the US president during the press conference after their meeting.

A quick post because I don't have time to write a full piece right now: Seth Abramson has done a very serious job of connecting the dots, and a picture of direct Russian influence and/or control over key aspects of the Trump campaign and its policies is starting to emerge. In particular, we're starting to get names, dates, places, and subjects of meetings.

For those of you old enough to remember, this is reminding me a lot of what happened with Iran-Contra around the middle of 1987, when the big chunks of information started to come out. Suddenly it was going from conjectures to concrete timelines, graphs of people and who knew what and when. But unlike Iran-Contra, here the top-level principal – in this case, Donald Trump – was clearly directly in the room from the get-go.

I'd expect this to start to develop very seriously in news articles in the next few days. Questions of Congressional investigation, FBI investigation, and so on will obviously be highly politicized, and the Congressional situation in the near future will depend heavily on the aftermath of the AHCA vote later today. However, this may soon reach the scales where even reluctant members of Congress feel forced to act. I've never seen anything like this – not Iran-Contra, and not Watergate. We're heading into uncharted territory.

Wie schön, dass Menschen nicht unsterblich sind. Man stelle sich vor, es würden noch Leute herum laufen mit den Ansichten aus dem 17ten oder 18ten Jahrhundert. Man merkt wie abseitig die Leute sind, die mit Ansichten aus gerade mal dem vorigen Jahrhundert herumlaufen.
