Below is a quote from the July Post:
- Why devastating floods in Germany and Barrie tornado? July 19, 2021
Germany’s Political Flood
Recall my son’s insight into the greater threat to the souls of men: socialism or capitalism.
On the same day as the Barrie tornado, the leader of Germany was visiting Biden in Washington for what will be her last trip. An important election will occur in September between the socialist Green Party (and coalition) and the present capitalist government of Merkel, with her controversial pro-gas pipeline from Russia. (I am simplifying the political landscape to make a point.)
The man chosen to replace Merkel as leader of the party is Armin Laschet, presently Governor of the German state of North Rhine-Westphalia.
So what happened?
Days of torrential rain culminated on Thursday, July 15th, 2021 (the same day as the Barrie tornado and revelation). It caused historic flooding with hundreds dead. The worst-hit was the North Rhine-Westphalia of the party leader Armin Laschet.
Most of the deaths have been reported in the states of North Rhine–Westphalia and Rhineland-Palatinate. dw.com
The headlines from major newspapers, such as the Wall Street Journal, says it all:

Conclusion: Pulling back the veil
The floods in Europe, especially Germany, are the result of heavenly events beyond our perception. Forever the future of Germany will be influenced, whose great weight of influence will, in turn, affect the fate of Europe.
Will socialism or capitalism prevail, or a combination of both?
So what was the outcome of the election — the war in the heavens?
It’s historically rare in German politics that the make-up of a leading coalition and identity of the next chancellor is so unclear. Despite Merkel’s popularity, her CDU struggled to galvanize the conservative party’s traditional base under Laschet, the governor of Germany’s North Rhine-Westphalia state.
Laschet was gaffe-laden during the campaign, including being caught on camera laughing during a tribute to those who died in the devastating floods in West Germany in July. Even on voting day, Laschet made a blunder by folding his ballot the wrong way — making his voting choice visible, which could make his vote invalid.
Climate change has played a central role during the election race. The environmentalist Greens gained more support than anticipated early on. ABC News
