MORE STRANGE MOVES FROM GERMANY IN EUROPE

About two weeks ago, there was more strange news and moves from Germany. We'll get to that in a moment, but first, let's recall some background. The first factor is Germany's precarious position in the center of Europe, surrounded by...well, if history is any teacher, Germany is surrounded by sharks: France and England to the West, Italy, and at one time, Austria-Hungary to the South, Russia to the East, and at one time in its history, Sweden to the North.  Prior to German unification under Prussia in 1871, the smaller German states, duchies, principalities and Free City-States  merely functioned as the great Freeway of Europe.  With the rise of Prussia as a great power, German diplomacy has had to walk a very careful tightrope balancing act between the western powers and Russia, making German foreign policy appear to the West, even in the best of circumstances, as schizophrenic.

More recently, we have seen Germany's pivotal role in postwar Europe in the creation first of the Common Market, then the European Union and the Eurozone, its pivotal role in NATO (post-reunification NATO, for example, was at one time heavily influenced by German General Klaus Naumann)...on and on we could go. Then came the shotgun wedding of East and West Germany under Chancellor Helmut Kohl's government, and then the emergence of the BRICSA nations (Brazil, Russia, India, China, South Africa), an unlikely geopolitical "alignment" brought about, as I have argued here, by the growing opposition and mistrust of post-Soviet American unilateralism, arrogance, and aggression.  Whether America's expanding role in the globe is justified or not, the mere fact that its military expenditures are trending to exceed the the rest of the world's major powers combined is enough to give those nations concern about the balance of power.  The profligacy of American spending has undermined confidence in the dollar as the world's reserve currency, to the point that now it would be safe to say that nothing backs it up, other than the raw threat of American military power.

In that context, Germany's recent calls for repatriation of its gold could be interpreted within the traditional context: Germany is merely displaying its typical schizophrenic diplomacy. Advocates of such a view could easily point to its central role in the EU.

But I'm not so sure, and I have indeed voiced the idea on this site that Germany's long term economic and strategic choices seem to lie more clearly with a realignment with Russia and China. With that in mind, a couple of weeks ago Germany sent another shocker to pompy Van Rompuy and the Euro-kooks in Brussels:

Germany Fires Live Ammo In Sino-European Trade War ... At Brussels

Lest you haven't the time to read Zero Hedge's assessment, it's summed up in that crucial last paragraph:

"But for Germany Inc., China is one of the two big economic engines that are still pulling. Exports to the Eurozone, particularly to top trade partner France, have stalled, and the industry is looking to China for growth. Chinese money is also flowing into Germany as Chinese companies are on a shopping spree, paying top euros for 98 firms in 2012, including Putzmeister, a world brand for concrete pumps [my article on the aftermath]. Germany Inc. sees in China an escape route from the economic mayhem of the Eurozone; it sees a booming market with over twice the population of the EU. For Germany Inc., China is the future – and Europe a drag. One more treacherous rift across Europe."

That, precisely, is the problem: the Eurozone, the EU, is and has always been a fantasy of silly and delusional people at Bilderberg meetings. The postwar realities that made the Common Market a good idea in the 1950s is no longer geopolitical or economic reality, and to expect Germany to continue to behave like the delusion makes any sort of long term strategic, economic, or political sense is to perpetuate the absurdity.

Bottom line: this is yet another key signal that the fissures in the EU are growing, not shrinking. If the trend keeps going, then we can watch for a quiet growth in the German presence at BRICSA summits, and the first step will come in the form of Germany being invited, and accepting, to send non-official "observers" to those events. That will be a first step to formal participation in the summits.

At that point, the EU will be revealed for what it truly is: without Germany, it's a vast irrelevancy and impotency.

See you on the flip side.

  1. Kind of not surprised by Germany’s recent “strange move” in the current Sino-European trade war, since this is not the first time Germany did such thing in recent years. Back In 2011, Germany abstained from the UN resolution on intervention in Libya, quite unusual for a pivotal member of NATO “abandoning its natural allies”.Germany’s decision probably had to do with two things: 1) Gaddafi was trying to bypass the dollar and the euro by introducing a gold-backed single African currency; 2) the Chinese were heavily invested in Libya before NATO invasion.

    It’s only matter of time for the African currency to trade directly with Renminbi, which will greatly facilitate China’s ambition in Africa. AFRICOM was initiated to counter Beijing’s influence in Africa in the form of “Forum on China–Africa Cooperation”, relying on hard military power exact opposite of China’s soft economic power. What happened in Libya in that context was a theater”, but also in the context of the ongoing “currency war”. It seems someone was telling chancellor Merkel she had betted on the wrong side, as she “narrowly escaped helicopter crash”, right after her decision on Libya, and then Germany had the antibiotic resistant E.Coli outbreak. Not to mention around roughly same time, Japan had Fukushima.

    Knowing who are the other “major players”, it shouldn’t be a surprise to see “strange move” like, a joint German and Chinese effort to tackle the E.coli virus.
    It’s sort of “defiance” on the German part which eventually resulted in their calling of repatriation of their gold, i suspect when chancellor Merkel made the decision on Libya, she was probably already thinking about “following Gaddafi’s gold step”. And if anyone knows anything about “Yamashita’s gold”, it makes sense why that German call was made after Merkel’s state visit to China.

    It’s worth to note, Benjamin fulford said the Rothschilds were behind invasion of Libya,they were there for “bargaining chip”,i find it quite accurate, since Evelyn de Rothschild did actually visit Beijing talking about two seemingly unrelated issues, “an international currency” and “planning for drought”(as Western China just had drought),and since Nicolas Sarkozy too made a brief stopover in Beijing right after Tripoli falls to the rebels. Apparently he was there using “Libya” as “bargaining chip” for the upcoming Cannes G20 summit, it seems the Western elites didn’t cut deal with BRICS on Euro debt crisis, little wonder war is looming over Syria and for that matter briefly North Korea.
    Speaking of Benjamin fulford, he did say he hope Merkel can make the right decision and side herself with humanity.

  2. Germans are nothing if not patriotic. When I first came here, all my friends were east Germans. They all loved their Country, with the exception of my wife. They know Germany has the ability to design and invent things which Russia and China Need. America knows that as well. After the german contingent went to China, it showed the anglo-american elite what Germany had in mind. Maybe that`s why Obama is comming to Berlin this month. Maybe.

  3. For all intents and purposes, the globe has been split into 10 economic free trade regions:

    Euro, Nafta, CIS, UNASUR, ASEAN, AU, MEU (planning stage), Mediterraneanian Union (planning stage) China–Japan–South Korea Free Trade Agreement (planning stage) and SAFTA.

    In the pipe line are trans regional free trade agreements such as the Trans Pacific Partnership Agreement (TPP) to further reduce national barriers.

    Germany is acting completely rationally, it is not bowing out of the EU, rather it is dragging the Eu into trans regional free trade agreements.

    This is perfectly rational beviour and fits very neatly with Joseph Tainter’s book “The collapse of complex societies.”

    1. Germany is acting completely rational if it is preparing for war, as Dutch Paratroopers are Integrated Into German Army – old alliances reunited.

      Dutch paratroopers will be integrated into a new German division of rapid reaction forces, German newspaper Rheinische Post reported on May 22. The 11th Airmobile Brigade—a mobile force of 4,500 troops that is equipped with light vehicles, mortars and anti-aircraft systems—will join 8,600 German soldiers to form the new division under German command.

      Free trade regions; hardly!

      It’s like this, if a politician say’s were experiencing global warming, then what is actually being stated is were experiencing global cooling, just as the word freedom actually implies license.

      Societies collapse because there designed to collapse, as they were nothing but fiefdoms to begin with, controlled through peonage while being given the illusion of having free will choice in life, the suckers buy it every time.

      Here is what the controllers of the Berlin faction are suggesting need to be done as the European Union is intentionally, by design, collapsed.

      Berlin Group: EU Needs Army and Super-President

      The European Union needs a radical transformation into a superstate, according to proposals laid out by the EU’s most enthusiastic members. The creation of a European army, a single European president and a European border police force were among their most striking recommendations.

      Formed at Germany’s behest, the group of foreign ministers from 11 member states met throughout the year and published their conclusions September 17. Calling themselves “the Future of Europe Group,” and sometimes known as the “Berlin club” or “Berlin group,” their suggestions to create a super-president over the whole EU

  4. Dr. Farrell, I know this is not the place, but seeing no other, I’d be glad to have here your answer to the following question:

    Having bought your books on the Giza and the Nazi subjects, could you tell what is the proper order of reading them, if there is any, a chronological sequence of their date of issue or a thematical chain that does not follow the timeline sequence of your writing them?

    Thanks,

  5. What we are dealing with is otherworldly.

    Ohrdruf Point Zero’s original premise was “there is no Germany, and there never was.”

    Now DownunderET is stating that “Martin Bormann’ Nazi International has achieved it’s goal in dominating the European heartland,”

    Playing devil’s advocate, if there never was a Germany, who’s to say that there is a European Union or ever was? This is the very essence of the word otherworldly.

    I believe this could best be summed up by the clandestine world of espionage and spycraft, a world where one may seem to be one thing but winds up being the other thing.

    Take Benito Mussolini who was the alleged fascist dictator of Italy during WW II, or was he? Could the real dictator of Italy have been located at Number 10 Downing Street in London, with Mussolini taking his marching orders from Churchill himself?

    Mere speculation you say? Outlandish speculation at that!

    SEE: http://www.guardian.co.uk/world/2009/oct/13/benito-mussolini-recruited-mi5-italy

    There is an old saying in the intelligence business: “Once a spook always a spook.”

    My contention is that Ohrdruf Point Zero’s contention is correct, except I’m taking it one step further –

    THERE ARE NO STATES AT ALL, NEVER HAVE BEEN AND NEVER WAS,

    The whole of history’s rich tapestry and traditions, are just that tradition’s. This system, the system (singular) was established in 350 B.C. as noticed in Plato’s work “The Republic.” Which described a ruling elite, lording itself over the human herd in oligarchical fashion. This would imply that since Greece gradually melded into the Roman Empire with its philosphers sought by Roman elitist in the education of their youth, that Pax Romana as the first modern State set up under Greek influence serves as a model of world domination and rule by a centralized elite to this day (2013).

    There is only one government of all governments, the NWO is not coming it is already here, and has been for well over 2000 years, if not before.

    As for DownunderET’s concerns, the NAZI’s are just a faction within the control structure that dominates the globe, who in all likelihood have developed weapons systems from the “New Physics” paradigm which will enable them to overcome the other factions of elites. Heralding in the Fourth Reich of neo-nazi feudalism of world domination perfecting Plato’s model of a neo Pax Romana with a NAZI twist.

    1. More succinctly put: States are merely administrative sub-divisions governed by a centralized authority.

      Wikipedia Administrative Division

      http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Administrative_division

      States that:

      An administrative division, subnational entity, geopolitical division, or country subdivision is a portion of a country or other political division, established for the purpose of government. Administrative divisions are each granted a certain degree of autonomy, and are required to manage themselves through their own local governments. Countries are divided up into these smaller units to make managing their land and the affairs of their people easier. For example, a country may be divided into provinces, which in turn are divided into counties, which in turn may be divided in whole or in part into municipalities. These are only a few of the names given to administrative subdivisions; more examples are provided below.

      Administrative divisions are conceptually separate from dependent territories, with the former being an integral part of the state and the other being only under some lesser form of control. However, the term “administrative division” can include dependent territories as well as accepted administrative divisions (for example, in geographical databases)

      1. Using the United States as an example of being an administrative sub-division, one need only to look to the “Treaty Clause” of the federal constitution and the corresponding “Supremacy Clause” (Article VI, Clause II) which states:

        “This Constitution, and the Laws of the United States which shall be made in pursuance thereof; and all treaties made, or which shall be made, under the authority of the United States, shall be the supreme law of the land; and the judges in every state shall be bound thereby, anything in the constitution or laws of any state to the contrary notwithstanding.”

        The “supremacy clause” is the most important guarantor of national union. It assures that the Constitution and federal laws and treaties take precedence over state law and binds all judges to adhere to that principle in their courts, making the States and attending courts administrative sub-divisions of the federal authority.

        Now as the federal authority disregards its constitutional mandates, it is unilaterally implementing treaty law as the law of the land superseding legitimate constitutional government in the formerly United States of America. This is being done under international mandates such as Agenda 21, the World Court, International monetary and trade organizations which find their roots in the “Laws of Oleron” and other quasi-governmental, meaning (private) oligarchical organizations.

    2. “THERE ARE NO STATES AT ALL, NEVER HAVE BEEN AND NEVER WAS”-

      exactly, longhorn- I became aware of Patrick Geary’s “Myth of Nations” after reading Schlomo Sand’s “Invention of the Jewish People” in which Sand albeit briefly referenced Geary- the brief link/concept caught my attention. however-

      stay well- regards-

      Larry in Germany

      1. Thank You LSM, as I had drawn my own conclusions as to the fact that State’s are nothing more than myths without being aware of Mr. Geary’s book.

        What got me thinking in this direction was Dr. Farrell’s book “Babylon’s Banksters.”

        While I do not believe that it was the intent of Dr. Farrell to lead his readers into drawing this conclusion, it was his explanation of how mercenaries were used in ancient history under the command of a central authority meaning the international bankers.

        Of course these same bankers were playing divide and conquer by causing the Chinese Empire to use a silver standard, the Western empire/s to adopt a gold standard. Which the international banksters would then play middleman between empires making handsome profits while driving the empires into a vassal state of peonage hence the mercenaries were enforcers of the banksters – war is the banksters racket.

        But by Dr, Farrell drawing out these seemingly unrelated facts and tying them together with his hypothesis of real time communications via a radio network ran out of the Temples by the Priesthood who were the banksters made it all fit together quite nicely.

        But back to your fellow Mr. Geary, here is a nice book review on his book as you recommended:

    3. Well this thread seems to have opened up a lot of different opinions, and that is healthy.

      I don’t care which way you slice it, the European Union is nothing but a probable good idea gone SOUTH. The manipulation by Brussels is the dead giveaway in my opinion (NWO) if you will. Then again I live in Australia and here we live very nicely and are probably far enough away from all the turmoil happening in the EU and the middle east.

      I’m thinking a lot of people are saying to themselves, what is going to happen to the EU, well looking from a financial point of view, it doesn’t look good.

      What I tried to point out in my first thread was that I didn’t believe Germany was going to leave the EU, and join the BRICSA’. And the reference to the Nazi International should be plain enough for anybody who has read the book to see.

      It’s just that Germany has sent a message to the Anglo-American elites, and that message is “Divorce”.

      1. “I live in Australia and here we live very nicely and are probably far enough away from all the turmoil happening in the EU and the middle east”-

        since when doesn’t Australia feel the ripple-effect of EU/US/middle east politics?- look at Australia’s history: was sucked into both WWI/WWII (both northern hemisphere conflicts) and by whom?- Europe and the US- then throw in the concept of “Pine Gap” (if there is truth behind the concepts/reports) sort of further de-bunking the concepts that AUS is a sovereign nation (on the par of US sovereignty)-

        now throw in:

        “the European Union is nothing but a probable good idea gone SOUTH”-

        exactly- so what could be farther south than…AUS-

        the last major conflict fought in the southern hemisphere was the Boer War in South Africa (excluding, of course, the earlier Spanish conquest of the “New World”)-

        any Aussie, Yank. Kraut, Gerry, etc. believing they are immune from the world of geopolitics (whoever is behind it) needs to pull their head out of the sand and face reality; none of us whatsoever regardless of geographical location are immune from “the system”-

        stay well- regards-

        Larry

      2. “Living nicely” in Australia??????????? Really??????????

        Our dollar has been raised so artificially high that what little industry that is left here is collapsing.
        The average Australian can no longer afford to own their own home.
        The cost of living is astronomically high and continues to go up.
        We are constantly dragged in to the wars of imperial conquest for the American Empire.
        Our foreign policy is no longer our own.
        Our government takes it diktats from London and Washington.
        Quite simply the notion of the sovereign state of Australia no longer exists, in fact Australia no longer exists. We are nothing more than a province of that great benevolent imperium, the “Pax Americana”.

        As an Australian living in the land formerly known as Australia I would have to disagree with the notion of living nicely.

        This used to be a great country once, alas that was a long time ago.

        1. Pax Americana – Hardly, legioXIV.

          Not having the particulars on the Australian economy here are the particulars about what is happening in America.

          ***

          Real wages fell 0.2% in 2012, down from $295.49 (1982-84 dollars) to $294.83 per week, according to the 2013 Economic Report of the President. Thus, a 1.9% increase in nominal wages was more than wiped out by inflation, marking the 40th consecutive year that real wages have remained below their 1972 peak.

          This decline is especially amazing when we consider that private non-farm productivity has doubled in this period.

  6. Seems to me that Martin Bormann’ Nazi International has achieved it’s goal in dominating the European heartland, Germany does indeed wave a big stick in the Euro. So why would they want to jump ship and get into bed with one of their arch enemy’s Russia.

    Sure you can have one foot in each camp, but what does that achieve? The Euro was designed by the elites for the elites, and Russia and China are just basically trading nations of “no concern”.

    The other spanner in the works is the German people, who will go to the polls in September, people outside the Euro see exactly the follies of the European Union, protests in the streets, stealing people’s money etc , and so the German people must see it as well. The polls indicate that Frau/dulent Merkel is very popular, but who believes polls.

    The game would get very interesting if Merkel’ party were to lose, September in the Reich will be very interesting to watch.

  7. Germany has been stab in the back since the days of the Holy Roman Empire. Used as a gladiator arena in the Thirty Years War 1618-48 that killed at least a million Germans. Again after WW 1 holding the bag for that war which lead to WW 2.and after a front line in the Cold War they have had enough of this so why not look east.

      1. na komm jetzt, Ohrdruf, please-

        there is no such thing as a “German folk”; Germany is a political boundary that has constantly been revised and if one looks at Germany’s geographical position smack-dab in the center of Europe through which every single invading army has “fornicated” it’s way there’s a reason why most Germans are NOT (contrary to popular belief) blond/blue-eyed- in fact, very, very few- just look around if you are truly German and living in the country which I doubt because of your statements)- there are more true blue-eyed redheads than blonds although they are still relatively rare-

        “We…are in this eternal game to protect the eternal female principle”- right- and I shot Kennedy- just look at the grammar of the German language to begin with (it’s THE most masculine-oriented language I’m aware of due to the constant grammatical shifts- end-points- to “den, dem”- and the structure of German society has only recently changed due to recent laws now requiring women who have filed for divorce due to their husband’s infidelity (I have a co-worker now going through the following) to pay for their husband’s support because they earn more-

        Germany has always been a patriarchal society-

          2. thanks, Dr. Farrell- I smelled a shill from his very first posting as I’m sure you also did (you’re not exactly “stoopid”)-

            but it still baffles me how so many posters fell for (and responded to) his vapid diatribe- and I have to admit I was playing the devil’s advocate by myself responding- but was just giving himself enough rope with which to hang himself- and it worked!-

          4. I made my post before I saw this one. Clearly Yeats was not entirely correct. Some of the best still do have conviction!

        “The best lack all conviction, while the worst
        Are full of passionate intensity.”

        Oh…Thank you, Larry in SW Germany. I agree with your recommendation.

  8. One additional note to what I just stated for Ohrdruf Point Zero. In addition to reading “Babylon’s Banksters as well as Dr. Farrell’s other books, may I recommend Ezra Pound’s (poet laureate) Cantos;

    http://www.amazon.com/Cantos-Ezra-Pound-Directions-Books/dp/0811213269

    Pound’s Cantos gives insight into the medieval banking cartel that operated out Italy in the 1400’s (House of Medici)

    See: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/History_of_banking

    It is interesting to note that Pound wrote to his father in the 1920s, in which he stated that his plan in writing his Cantos was:

    A. Live man goes down into world of dead.
    B. ‘The repeat in history.’
    C. The ‘magic moment’ or moment of metamorphosis, bust through from
    quotidian into ‘divine or permanent world.’ Gods, etc.

    Ezra Pound’s Cantos dovetails with Dr. Farrell’s work in emphasizing the religious angle and that history is a series of repeating episodes of the same playbook! I’ll end with this caveat; I caution the casual reader that Pound’s “Cantos,” is strictly metaphysical and esoteric, meaning it will be a complicated to difficult read, that is unless they are bilingual especially fluent in Japanese. Enjoy!

  9. Ohrdruf Point Zero you may have something there. In Babylon’s Banksters, Dr Farrell alluded to the fact that most of what is counted as fact by most about Statecraft, is actually the revealed history-story for public consumption (with emphasis on STORY); with most States and empires throughout recorded history being nothing more than fiefdoms of a global elite, extensions of ruling oligarchs behind the scenes operating out of the Temples.

    One concept comes to mind to more accurately describe this hypothesis –

    Organized Criminal Syndicate.

    It is as A. Eisenstein stated: Reality is merely an illusion, albeit a very persistent one

    1. then why did you post this:

      “We Germans as a ‘folk’”- please explain-

      of course there was no ‘Deutschland’ until Bismarck united the German-speaking states
