The list of unflattering title, collected by the U.S. Ambassador Richard Grenell to stay in his ten-month tenure in Berlin is a long one: "total failure", "posturing of Flegels", "right-wing colonial officer", "he thinks he can to the Lord of the manor", "the little Trump". On Wednesday, still a came to it. Gregor Gysi wants to make him "Persona non grata" to explain, writes the Left-politicians on Twitter: "Maybe the USA will send a Ambassador to talk much better & can negotiate."
The 52-year-old U.S. Ambassador, it will not be able to have again. Or rather, he didn't want to leave. As the Figures on the medium-term financial planning of the Federal government were leaked, he has done what he loves best – he scolded: "That the Federal government attracts it only in a recital, to reduce their already unacceptable contributions to military readiness, is a worrying Signal of Germany in its 28 Nato allies." Wolfgang Kubicki, the FDP, said Grenell to lead as the "high Commissioner of an occupying power," and should immediately be reported.
However, one may speculate that Grenell not hurt, but feels understood. Much enemy, much honour’. You should confirm it in the Belief that the discourse in Germany will be controlled by "elites in Berlin". Who talk the things out in the open, must expect to be by some media in the right corner.
The Mixing Grenells passion
It is a closed world picture that has been immunized against objections. The more criticism, the more striking the evidence, that had felt the Criticized hit, and because the Criticized taken had felt, was entitled to the criticism of him. "What is true, is true": The quote is sometimes wrongly attributed to Karl Kraus, who can no longer fight it. As a Motto, it now unites the global leaders of right-wing populism.
Polterei as a principle. The also features Grenell. Gone and forgotten his promise from June of last year, as he promised, after a controversy remorseful is not: "I have no intention of myself in political Affairs, actively to interfere." In social networks, laughing out loud would be noted behind this sentence, a "lol", "of".
Because the Mixing is Grenells passion. He lives so intensely, that even Friedrich Merz, the head of the Atlantic bridge, defends on request. To outer "this man I me at all," he says. More distance, diplomatically packaged.
It began to Grenells first day of work with a naughty-research Tweet, addressed to German companies. He asked to terminate immediately its business relationship with Iran. He then gave the right-wing populist "Breitbart News Network" an Interview in which he said: "I definitely want to strengthen other Conservative in the whole of Europe." And: "There is the awakening of a silent majority, which opposes elites and their bubble."
He's threatening the company, criticized by the media
Then, Grenell threatened companies that participate in the German-Russian gas pipeline project "Nord stream 2", sanctions. The Federal government he criticised for not adhering to the air strikes on Damascus and Homs involved. The editor-in-chief of the "mirror" before he threw anti-American reporting, "since then, President Trump is in the office, increased this tendency to the boundless".
a few days Ago, America's chief diplomat in Germany threatened again: If the Chinese company Huawei will contribute to the construction of the mobile network, 5G, would limit his country's intelligence cooperation. The Federal government has not responded with the somewhat defiant-sounding remark, it was vulnerable to blackmail.
The Vienna Convention on diplomatic relations is obliged ambassadors, not in the internal Affairs of their host country to interfere. You should make contacts in governments and for the positions of their own country to advertise. The Ambassador of a country, no party and no President represented. Wolfgang Ischinger, the head of the Munich security conference and former German Ambassador to the United States, had not advised Grenell accordingly, to make the First in the host country is unpopular, but to explain his country in all its facets. However, such advice does not reach the stoick.
he Is with trump's approval?
In Berlin's political class is Grenell isolated quite, only the Minister of health, Jens Spahn is called, nor its friend. In addition, no one knows whether the U.S. Ambassador is out of arbitrariness or with the approval of Donald Trump. Although Grenell stresses at every opportunity how tight his wire to the White house, but apparently the appreciation is not always reciprocated. As a successor to the American Ambassador to the UN, Nikki Haley was looking for, ignored Trump the ambitions Grenells.
Because of the dealing with the Hyper-ventilate nd hothead as toxic, produce its claims, the Now-only-right-effect. Grenell is against doing business with Iran? Now. Grenell is against Nord stream 2? Now. Grenell calls for a drastic increase in the military budget? Now.More about

Grenells opponents see him as a part of that force which always wants Evil and always creates Good. For Mephisto, the US Ambassador is not. In addition, motif is in Spite of a bad Action. But who reconsider by his way of just those problems intensified, he claims to fight, it should perhaps be Occur.
