Power-mad bird (Merkel) sticking close to top guy (Stasi agent Osten)
The picture above was taken in 1986. It depicts an outing to the Baltic Island of Rugen by members of the DDR version of The Hitler Youth: the FDJ – or in full, DDR-Jugendverbandes. The top Alpha-male at this gathering was Hans-Jörg Osten. And you’ll never guess who’s perched right next to him. Just as, after the collapse of the USSR, a mere ten years later, little Geli Merkel was perched equally close to the ample buttocks of Chancellor Helmut Kohl….whom she later shafted to take over the CDU leadership.
Very few close observers now doubt that Merkel’s father (the only man on record who defected from West to East Germany) was a Stasi social spy and part-time organiser. Nor do they have many doubts any more that the current German Chancellor Angela Merkel was an active Gruppenfüherin in the FDJ.
What most Germans don’t know, however, is that Hans-Jörg Osten was her Professor and close confidante at the Academy of Sciences where she was a student. And what they only found out yesterday is that Osten was a paid agent of the Stasi – with documentary evidence from the files to prove it.
In the files (extracted left) her physics professor and fellow FDJ bigwig is unmasked as a spy using the cover name ‘Einstein’.
Today, Hans-Jörg Osten is 56 years old, and a professor at the Leibniz University of Hanover.
The documents go on to say that he was recruited ‘on the basis of the political-ideological cooperation…in his operating activities, he is mainly useful on defence issues, and for the development of people working files. He was always a very reliable worker.’ The ‘defence issues’ thing is a reference to time spent by Osten working in the US. During this period, he was a Stasi spy.
Contemporaries suggest that Merkel had “an unusually close” relationship with her married Professor. Indeed, this tendency of unsere geliebte Geli to stick like a limpet to the big mines before disarming them has been recorded several times before at The Slog.
I will repeat what I have written umpteen times now: I have no bitch with the German people, only with the former spook/former DDR control freak between them undermining the Bundesrepublik constitution…and conning the German electorate into believing that Berlin will, under their tutelage, promote fiscal responsibility, democracy and a great future in the Eurozone.
Wolfgang Schäuble has already been shafted once by his boss. But as a former Minister of the Interior, he knows where all the bodies are buried. That’s why he’s in the position he is now, and why Geli is not about to fire Dr Strangelove come what may: he knows all about her former enthusiasm for Stalinism.
But those who think European liberty and democracy are safe in the hands of these two twisted gargoyles need a blunt reality check. I hope this piece acts as one.
