SORAYA SARHADDI NELSON, BYLINE: This scene three years ago of asylum seekers thronging Munich’s main train station is what the conservative Bavarian party allied with Chancellor Angela Merkel says must never be repeated. More than a million migrants crossed the Austrian border into Germany through Bavaria since 2015. Although that flow has slowed to a trickle, the migrants’ impact on German society is a matter of constant debate, including by President Donald Trump, who tweeted inaccurately about it earlier today.
Do this by cutting five or six 1 inch holes around the top, as well as the bottom of the cone. Heat buildup can cause the rose bush break while it is dormant. It’s also advisable to mound soil around the crown of the plant before putting the cone in place.

Trump swore that he would not repeat the errors of the past. Presidents got worthless agreements in 1994 when “Pyongyang committed to freezing its illicit plutonium weapons program in exchange for aid” and again in 2005 when North Korea “pledged to abandon ‘all nuclear weapons and existing nuclear programs’ and return to the Non Proliferation Treaty.” The bland statement that Trump obtained seemed almost identical to these past, useless agreements with vows to undertake “complete denuclearization of the Korean peninsula” and commit to a “lasting and stable peace.” That sounds like the same pablum we’ve gotten before. The difference here is that Trump removed North Korea’s stigma as a pariah state, and for good measure, decided to discontinue joint war games with Seoul, which are an “irritant” to the North Koreans.
STENGEL: Yes, and that is that’s how they have amplified their message. And again, you know, Twitter has announced that they’ve taken down more than 400,000 handles. Facebook is in this game. Lanier acknowledges later to a reporter that All Hands is indeed primarily a PR tactic. “It’s really a shame we have police officers who don’t realize that public relations is a really important part of what we do. Absolutely, it’s a public relations stunt and it works! People like it.
Indeed, the religious conservatives stir unusually strong passions. Watching religious conservatives is like people in the 18th century going to asylums to watch lunatics chew on their own wrists,” says Regina Barecca, a social critic who teaches English at the University of Connecticut. They are a fringe, and people who take them seriously aren’t engaging in some disinterested dialogue.
