Merkel out, Scholz in – Germany’s new vax tyranny looms

Olaf Scholz was just cleared to be Germany’s next Chancellor, who is set to be sworn in Wednesday, marking an end to Angela Markel’s historic 16-year run at the helm. Meanwhile across Europe, ongoing Covid policy protests are erupting in Austria and France. To discuss all this, George Szamuely, writer and Senior Fellow at the Global Policy Institute in London and Gerald Olivier, journalist and research fellow at the Institute for Perspectives and Security Europe IPSE join In Question to discuss. China is firing verbal warning shots at the US this week, after the US threatened to boycott the Beijing Winter Olympics. This, after President Biden floated the idea of a diplomatic boycott of the games, while still allowing US athletes to compete on the grounds of ‘humanitarian violations.’ Meanwhile, China is taking its Belt and Road initiative all the way down to Africa’s western central coast in Equatorial Guinea. Former Pentagon official Michael Maloof and conservative radio show host Steve Gruber join a panel to discuss.
