Well now it's "official" folks, the euro is in real trouble, because a Rothschild banker says it's so:
I have a number of comments, and they are of two natures: (1) the hidden geo-econo-politics going on behind the scenes in the Eurozone meltdown, which focuses on the emerging dynamic between Paris and Berlin, and (2) the conclusions that the Daily Bell draws.
So, first the geo-econo-politics. Note the following quotations from the article which, in turn, references Rothschild banker Normal Lamont:
"Eurozone leaders are already drawing up plans to get round their national parliaments to increase funding [to alleviate the sovereign crisis] if necessary Yet leaders of eurozone countries appear determined to keep the show on the road, however much voters and their parliaments object to the project. Never mind that the €440 billion fund is already considered too little too late — or that the European Commission President Jose Manuel Barroso resorted yesterday to demanding Britain helps bail out Greece even though we're not a member of the eurozone ...
"Euroscepticism is on the rise everywhere in Europe. European politicians know well that fiscal and political union of eurozone countries, with an economic policy determined by Germany, is not going to be acceptable to the eurozone's voters. Citizens do not want decisions on taxes and spending determined outside their own nation. Because of mounting opposition to the rescue plan, Mrs Merkel's policy at each stage has been to do the minimum necessary to keep the currency afloat. But this has not restored confidence, and the Americans have become increasingly alarmed at the threat the euro poses to the world. There are no easy answers."
Did you catch that? France had a major stake in Greek bonds, and Germany's bailout of Greece is, in fact, really a bailout of France and the French banks holding the bonds. No wonder "Euroscepticism" is on the rise, for Lamont comes right out and states what the problem is: the economic policy for the eurozone is coming from dictats in Berlin, which will set the policies for taxes and policy decisions in other nations. Meanwhile, Chancellorin Merkel, as the article notes, is doing the minimum necessary to hold the euro together, doubtless in an effort to minimize the growing influence of Berlin within Europe. "Euroscepticism" in other words, is a euphemism for some historical memories that need not even be mentioned, for they are all too obvious, and nowhere is Euroscepticism as strong as it is among the Germans themselves, who are being "asked" to foot the bill.
My second point concerns the Daily Bell's analysis:
"Strong stuff from an insider's insider. Does it indicate a shift at the very top? We've tracked the unraveling of numerous elite dominant social themes in the past few years, always pointing out that the growing Internet Reformation would make it difficult for the power elite to pursue their globalist ambitions. We've written on many occasions that we believe the elites eventually may be forced to "take a step back" as they evidently did after the advent of the Gutenberg Press.
"The Gutenberg Press and the information it spread prepared the ground for the Protestant Reformation and the schism of the Roman Catholic Church. In the process, the Western world experienced both the Renaissance and the Reformation, events that reignited science and resulted eventually in much freer markets for a rising merchant class and the populating of the New World.
The alternative media is often gloomy about the expanding progress of the new world order, but we've always believed it "would be a very difficult thing to implement. Money Power may seek global governance, but it's a massive undertaking and in the era of the Internet it grows harder every day.
"The elites have tended to try to shove reluctant middle classes toward one-world government via dominant social themes, fear-based promotions that frighten people into giving up power and wealth to globalist solutions. But in the 21st century these promotions have begun to sputter and fail, depriving the Anglosphere familial elites and their enablers useful tools.
"Afghanistan was a war that should have been won, or so the elites apparently thought, but enthusiasm for its prosecution has long since waned. It looks like a loss now. Global warming has been rebutted so many times by the alternative media that is now looked upon with skepticism in the mainstream media as well. Even central banking itself – the ability to print money from nothing – once the elite's "sacred cow" and perhaps its most important meme, has come under sustained attack.
"These fear-based promotions, along with others, are in trouble. And now it looks as if the grand dream of the EU and a continent-wide currency may be foundering as well, in the long-term if not the short. Now Lamont signals what is increasingly obvious: That the EU, or at least the euro, is a failing or failed experiment.
"If the Anglosphere is indeed surrendering its dream of a steppingstone to world government via the EU, this would be huge news and further affirmation of the paradigm we promote concerning the Internet Reformation, and its impact.
"Of course, the internationalist's dream dies hard. Alternative scenarios regarding global consolidation seem increasingly available, as we have pointed out recently. One fallback is probably to let the EU fall into chaos along with America and China, and then propose some sort of world government as a solution. (But we don't think this was the primary plan.) Another set of plans may have to do with memes we believe we have detected regarding "transparency" and now, via Occupy Wall Street, "direct democracy.""(Emphasis added)
First, note the implication of The Daily Bell's statements concerning the printing press and the rise of the Renaissance and the Reformation, for in fact the article is subtly arguing that these events were, to some extent, events that were running counter to hidden manipulations of the elite. In other words, the historical roots of what the Daily Bell calls the "Anglosphere" and that I call the "Anglo-American corporate elite" are indeed very old, a component of a centuries' long conspiracy, a case that one would have to argue by "revising and extending" the type of arguments I made in Babylon's Banksters. Indeed, such a case can be argued to a certain extent, as the research of Webster Tarpley on the Venetian oligarchy evidences. But even the indefatigable Mr. Tarpley would be the first to admit that such a case would have to be vastly expanded, to include the connections between Venice, Amsterdam, and of course, the City of London.
Indeed, the internationalist-banksters' dreams will die hard, if at all, but it is, I submit, and in half-agreement with The Daily Bell, that these statements of Mr. Lamont are perhaps the first signs that they are changing their long-term plan to "the backup" plan.
But there is another possibility, one The Daily Bell is quick to dismiss, and which I have time and time again warned about, and this is the tendency, within so much analysis within the alternative internet research community, to view the "Anglosphere" as a monolithic coordinated bloc, free of internal factional stresses, marching omnicompetently into the promised land of the New World Order. But there are other players, the "Fascist International" for one, with its deep inroads into global drug trade, intelligence agencies, and so on. And we must also point out, that in addition to France, there were other players in the Greek bond fiasco...Goldman Sachs for example, and that is as much a part of the other great faction within the Anglosphere as it is of the "Rothschild" group. So there may be deeper hidden reasons for the views of Mr. Lamont than even the Daily Bell intuits. We shall, as the article itself says, indeed see what time brings.
