Bavarian politician first out with hard lockdowns in 2020. "The CIA's dream candidate".
Markus Söder is a German politician serving as Minister President of Bavaria since 2018. He has been one of the foremost proponents of a hard lockdown and other measures in the Covid-19 situation.
Background, education and military service
After graduating from the Gymnasium in 1986, he served his military service from 1986 to 1987. He then studied law at the University of Erlangen–Nuremberg from 1987 with a scholarship from the Konrad Adenauer Foundation. He passed his first state examination in 1991 and was a research assistant at the department of constitutional, administrative and church law at the same university. He worked as a trainee and then as an editor with Bayerischer Rundfunk in Munich from 1992 to 1994, when he was elected to the Bavarian Parliament and became a full-time politician.
Söder has been a member of the Landtag, the state parliament of Bavaria, since 1994. From 2003 to 2007 he was secretary general of the CSU party; in this capacity, he worked closely with then Minister-President and party chairman Edmund Stoiber. During his time in office, he was also part of the CDU/CSU team in the negotiations with the SPD on a coalition agreement following the 2005 federal elections, which paved the way to the formation of Chancellor Angela Merkel’s first government.
As finance minister in the state government of Minister-President Horst Seehofer in the period 2011-18, Söder was also one of the state’s representatives at the Bundesrat, where he served on the Finance Committee.
A teacher remember's him in the following way:
The teacher says he would have remembered Markus Söder "even if he hadn't made this career. An excellent student, high intellectual potential." Söder never played truant, gave brilliant presentations, wrote excellent exams, got 15 points from him on every report card, "translates: one plus," which contributed to Söder's Abi (college-preparatory school diploma) average of 1.3.
As the teacher recalls, an almost audible "but" hangs in the air the whole time. He utters it when describing the team spirit of his class at the time as: a group of students among whom Söder "unfortunately" also stood out for a "lack of empathy." He enjoyed his A's the most, he says, as long as the others were writing C's. If someone had come too close to him in the grades, it could have happened that he complained that the exam had been too easy.
"Markus Söder always saw himself in competition with the group," says the teacher. Never, he says, was he asked for help by the others. "Who do you ask for help? The one you suspect wants to help."
Minister-President of Bavaria
In March 2018, lawmakers formally elected Söder as new Minister-President to replace Horst Seehofer, who had become German interior minister in Chancellor Angela Merkel’s new cabinet.
He and his cabinet were one of the first state governments to decide to impose a "lockdown" to contain the virus and in April 2020 he invited 2 Bilderbergers and the wife of a Bilderberg Steering Committee member to the Bavaria/COVID-19 Economic Advisory Council,
Söder predicts a "Corona-RAF"
"Evil thoughts turn into evil words and at some point also evil deeds", warned Söder."That is why we not only have to improve the security measures for democratic institutions in Germany, but also fundamentally look at the sect-like movement of 'lateral thinkers' and other comparable groups."
"There is a risk that “a corona mob or a type of corona-RAF could form in Germany from the environment of the AfD, that could become increasingly aggressive and even violent” "
According to him, the domestic security agency BfV has a central task to play here.
"Söder is the CIA's dream candidate"
The normally careful analyst Albrecht Müller, editor-in-chief the independent newsmedia NachDenkSeiten, published the assessment of an anonymous Berlin management consultant who "has contacts to the super-rich and super-influential." According to him, "Söder is the CIA's dream candidate; the imperial satrap for the next 20 years in the pivotal state Germany. He leaves nothing to be desired. See 16 years of Merkel. Every opponent of Soeder will be brutally crushed in the media.[..] You saw the value of Germany in election cheating against Trump. The CIA operations ran through Pakistan, Italy and Germany. And in the decline of the superpower you need stupid and brutal guys like Söder at every nook and cranny. For the tactics to maintain power, the interests of Germany, or democracy, are aboslutely irrelevant".
Müller agreed with the assessment, pointing out how the system works. The "services of another country do their own personnel planning for our country as well as for other peoples. And through their influence on the media of the respective country, in this specific case with us through the abundance of pro-transatlantic people present in the media, they ensure that their candidate always gets a good picture and is verbally present with interviews."
