EARTHQUAKES IN EUROPE: OPPOSITION TO MERKEL FROM MERKEL’S OWN ...

When I read this one, shared by Mr. A.B., it went immediately into my "wow" box; do not pass go, do not collect 200 euros. The reason: well, the cracks in the Atlantic alliance appear to be growing. We know, as I suggested in yesterday's blog and have suggested previously on this website, that the signals coming out of the United Kingdom lately clearly seem to be aimed at America. The British ruling class is unhappy with the Washington's increasingly looney "leadership" and the policies it wants everyone else to follow (like sanctioning Russia for objecting to America's sponsorship of a coup d'etat in the Ukraine).Mr. Cameron might mouth the right things for Washington's ears and the cameras, but quietly, in the informal meetings of the Tory party itself, I suspect there's a lot of grumbling behind the scenes. The French, you'll recall, are none too happy at having to eat the cost of two amphibious helicopter carriers it had built for Russia. And don't forget, M. Hollande did that little radio interview suggesting that maybe the sanctions weren't such a good idea, alienating Russia was an even worse idea and can't we all just get along and sing Kumbya(in French, of course). Within a very short time, he was hit with the Charlie Hebdo incident.

Then there's Mama Merkel.

So far, her efforts to resolve the situation independently haven't shown much independence, and all that in spite of her best efforts to be a good and compliant lap poodle for Washington. But she did, to her credit, get France and Russia and even the Ukraine to agree to ceasefire terms under the Minsk II talks, terms which the Ukraine seems determined not to observe(doubtless with some strategic prodding from Victoria F*-the-EU fame).

But Frau Merkel, it seems, has not been able to accomplish all this without some growing opposition within her own Christian Democratic Union party, and from one of her own cabinet ministers to boot:

HISTORIC NEWS: Finally, EU Breaks Away from U.S.

Here's the crux:

On Saturday, September 12th, United Kingdom’s Labour Party elected as its leader and their candidate to lead the UK, Jeremy Corbyn, who has been the most vocal British critic of the UK’s serving as the lap-dog of an aggressive imperialistic United States of America.

Simultaneously, the leader of German Chancellor Angela Merkel’s own Christian Social Union Party, Horst Seehofer, a man who, prior to his being appointed to be the Party-chief had been Chancellor Merkel’s Agriculture Minister, has now turned against Chancellor Merkel (who until now was the most powerful leader in all of Europe) and denounced her policy on the refugee crisis, and has now stated publicly that Germany should instead ally with Russia and against NATO on the entire Syrian war.

This public statement, which is really a sea-change in history, was reported Friday night, 11 September, in Germany’s leading magazine, The Mirror, Der Spiegel, and it represents the breaking-point in Germany’s foreign policy, finally yielding now to the rapidly rising anti-Americanism within Germany that results from America’s prioritizing America’s war against Russia as being a more important goal than the global war against Islamic jihad, which is clearly the most pressing threat to national security not only within Germany, and not only within all Western countries, but even within Pakistan and many other countries that have majority-Islamic populations, as well as in India, China, and other nations around the world.

The article of course ignores one possible reason for America's sudden turn from the "war on terrorism" to the renewal of the "covert war on Russia," and that is simply the very heavy, and documented, American intelligence community role in the creation or aiding and abetting of many of the terrorist groups themselves. Continued concentration on that only progressively airs American dirty laundry in that respect, and there's a lot of it.

But now, as the article notes, there is a huge sea-change in Merkel's own  party, and it was inevitable: Germany has little to gain, economically, militarily, or culturally, from continued cooperation with Washington's insane anti-Russia policy, and quite a bit to lose.

The real question for Germany, and for that matter, France and the United Kingdom, will be to see if the growing opposition to American policy can be formalized across national boundaries, or, to put it country simple, if it can be forged into a "European Union" issue.  And this brings us to my high octane speculation: I not only suspect that it can be, but that this growing opposition - to American policy, to the growing "refugee" crisis in Europe - is in fact the "issue" being created to forge an "EU identity", and to create the requisite conditions for an integrated EU army. (On that score, recall only a few fews ago the merger of two of Europe's, and the world's, largest armaments firms into a gigantic conglomerate, creating one of the prerequisites for an integrated military). Notably, the way this is being generated is creating backlash against the progressive policies that have prevailed in Europe thus far. If it gells on a European-wide basis, then watch for that integrated European military. Then- in the context of growing opposition to American policy ,which will come inevitably, barring some unforeseen "about face" on Washington's part- after that, we can look for the demands to remove America's bases from those countries.

The game, at least in Britian's Labour Party, and Germany's CDU, would seem to be afoot. France, and Italy are the ones to watch now.

See you on the flip side...

  1. To me it looks like the U.S. rebelled against their sovereign Nazi International leaders after 9/11, and they lost. Only problem is the Nazi’s occupy the high ground (up there) and Germany was most likely on their side all along. Now rather than go down with the sinking U.S. ship, the U.K. and rest of the EU has decided to become sanctioned rulers of planet earth, subservient only to the space Nazi’s themselves….I just can’t seem to get that space station mission poster with the American and Russian Jedi’s out of my head though. I can’t imagine Russia giving into or working with the Nazi’s for long but who knows.

  2. One can’t help but speculate, is the removal of Australian P.M. Tony Abbott (You know, the “I’m going to shirtfront Putin” quoter) on September 14th, also part of what appears to be a major push back on U.S. policy? Folks, we certainly are living in interesting times!

    1. Turnbull (another truly Dickensian name) is yet another Golden Sacks alumni being put in yet another prime ministership withoutan election — that’s three by my count since the financial system collapse in ’08.

      Just another bankster “technocrat” put in place to harmonize the Western nations for more efficient harvesting.

  3. Can’t wait for the skinheads to give a warm hearted(well warm anyways, molotov cocktail style) german welcome to the refugee Syrians in the refugee centers they’ll be sheltered in. Kind of a modern day Hansel and Gretal gingerbread house deal, thats why Germany’s letting so many refugee’s in, because they’ll all be driven out as soon as the rest of the E.U. is flooded with humanity,ISIS sleepers among them.

    1. Hmmm Yankee so your take is that Germany could be behind and/or utilizing to its own ends the current deployment of Weapons of Mass Migration against Europe?

  4. Are we going to see chemical plant explosions in the EU soon?

    With so many layers and misdirectional loans made, do we have any means at all for determining who the one still solvent player is on the global monopoly board? After all, is there even one nation on the planet not in debt? Switzerland? There must be at least one entity on the planet with no debt (and boundless credit).

    For now it seems pointless to sort how who will be allied with who and who will be fighting who. That one last entity standing (debt free) can and may choose who to throw at who to liquidate wealth of nations as that last entity wills.

    Roger’s dark option starts to look more likely sometimes. How do we change our perspective to make that a less likely scenario?

  5. If you look at the front page of the Economist, I think it was the December issue, with all the world leaders, you will see exactly where the UK and Germany are going. Merkel is in lockstep with Putin. The UK has already moved east. All that gold moving from London to Shanghai is not only Chinese Gold. It is British Gold. For ll the anti colonialist British Empire rhetoric, the UK has had long historical ties with Hong Kong, Shanghai,and India that go back to the 17th century, four hundred years of trade and commerce via shipping. India is also an English speaking country, and has absorbed much of English literature and culture. Europe in turn has had thousands of years of trade and commerce with the east overland. The Silk Road project will re-establish these ties and cheaper costs through fast rail instead of expensive ports and boat yards and reduce time delivery. With a growing middle class in the east and populations figures in the billions, it is obvious where the net market growth and investment capital will flow. It is going to be an interesting century and by the end of it the world will look completely different to how it looks today. It is a great pity that the USA did not opt for co-operation with their Western neighbour Russia and build a bridge to the east from their western borders, instead they want to “own”Russia, in the same way Chevron and Monsanto have bought out Ukraine, a shortsighted, egotistical and self defeating policy. Nations of the world are not a McDonalds outlet or a Wall Mart outlet, they actually have ideas, customs and identities of their own.

      That’s the neoliberal way/short-term financial gains via their engineered virtual economy via their financialization/privatization current modus operandi.

      Long-term, smart investment?
      Not in their securitized DNA bones.

  6. Above all the manufactured chaos, a circumvoluted esoteric and ironic twist of karmic fate, which is no coincidence but nefarious intent, will put pope Francis’ pen to paper, to achieve triumph for the scheme of Giovanni « Francesco » Marino Morosini. With this sign Earth as a kingdom might loose it’s crown.

  7. “…this growing opposition … is in fact the “issue” being created to forge an ‘EU identity’…”

    If you are a ‘big picture’ kind of person, can you say:

    Problem -> Reaction -> Solution ?

    TPTB have long wanted a North American Union, a European Union, etc. In the case of the EU, they want an amalgamation of people, not the nation-state form of the EU today…

  8. My question to Frau Merkel is “when”, how long can this schrade keep going. The internal unrest in Germany’s government and most likely other European countries who are “fed up” with the US foreign policy, can only speak out at present. The REAL “blowback” is when the US bases get their marching orders, but don’t hold your breath.

  9. In one of her latest posts, “Heads Up, It’s a Trap” https://solari.com/blog/heads-up-its-a-trap/, CAF outlined the upcoming (at the end of this month) triad of Papal Visit, UN Meeting with all the necessary heads of state and potential vote on the UN Post-2015 Development Agenda, which she describes as Agenda 21 on steroids, we could be looking at devastating consequences aimed specifically at the US and to a lesser degree, the EU. Targeting the developed world for sustaining the rest of humanity, in every possible way, it is possible that the various opposition parties are also using this turbulent time to generate interest in regime change. I hate that we have to take such a wait and see position because it all sounds like a tempest is brewing.

      Certainly looks like those ducks are indeed lining up to do a number on the dumbed-down “believers”. Unfortunately, I fear more of us aren’t even in that pond, but will “feel” the collateral damage in spades[hopefully, not of the graveyard variety].

    In an aside, I just picked up an advance copy of “Supersymmetry” by David Walton where in the military industrial complex is doing black project research at the New Jersey Supercollider at Lakehurst. The weapons the are employing via quantum mechanics is breathtaking; even manipulating time. Also, a parasitic “intelligence” is attempting to use the collider as a means to “enter” our universe. It does manage to breach it during a military test of new technologies being displayed to the Secretary of Defense.

    1. I didn’t even know there was a New Jersey supercollider…well I guess that explains why my immune system always takes a nose dive when I return home. Strong magnetic fields and immune systems can’t exactly coexist.

    The Chinese Silk Road along with Russia India and others is going to be the new Gravy Train on economic/political rails throughout Eurasia. All the passengers are now coming on board to claim their booths/cabins for the long ride. Of course, they’re still building those space ports at undisclosed locations. Some will be partners in both and/or at cross purposes.
    But the U.S. appears to have been recently[past few decades] cast in the role of wearing the black hat. They do so love those villain roles, because frankly, it is just so, well… “them.”

  12. I don’t think the US is calling the shots. Europe and London are, they still control our money supply and thus our politicians. Our role is to be the scape goat for the war crimes the bankers deem necessary in the middle east. Our usefulness in their mind is coming to an end and thus they are weakening our alliances and perception to the world at large. Our population and culture is being degraded on purpose to make their New World Order look better and seem necessary. The ruling titled gentry had Clinton build up China likely for the sole purpose of pitting us against one another for both China’s and the US’s mutual destruction as they sit it out. Likely the EU can take Russia without us now. All three super powers are likely to be the fall guys for a massive depopulation agenda. From the ashes the old world ruling evil caste can rise up again to rule over the chosen survivors with an advanced technological serfdom. Complete with little black chips inserted into the spine of all newborn serfs to track their every move, correct undesired behavior or thoughts, or end the threat of them if they try to regain their self rule. History will be erased so future generations will never realize what they lost. I suspect the old world families are the break away civilization coming out of the shadows to try and retake the planet once and for all.

    1. Yes Roger a planetary ZARDOZ meets THE TIME MACHINE. Except this time the Morlocks will be on the Menu and the Eloi will be the diners. By the way Joseph I am now reading The Third Way looks like the NAZI International goes back further than the Third Reich if I get the drift of the book.

  13. The US is wrecking Syria and cultivating ISIS to get its pipeline to break Russia’s pivotal role supplying energy to Europe, and just as importantly, it is wrecking yet another ME nation on behalf of Israel, which is eager to claim Syrian territory for its vision of Eretz Israel dominating a region that, when this unholy pair are done with it, will be nothing but smoldering ruins.

    Islamic jihadis are the useful idiots in this project, and it shows to what extent Europe and especially Germany is under the thrall of the Zionists that they trot out this threadbare and oh-so-obvious bit of misdirection yet again.

    No one dare speak the truth about what groups are truly to blame for laying waste to the ME and creating all those muslim refugees.

  14. Then there has been the German sleight-of-hand on immigration. On Sept. 5th, the European oligarch press praised Merkel for announcing that Germany would admit a large number of immigrants from Syria. Photos – genuine, setups or both – appeared of Germans welcoming immigrants with placards and chocolate in Munich and Vienna train stations. But by Sept. 10th all this had changed. “Der Spiegel” blasted headlines about “left-right” demonstrator clashes over immigration (the usual division of the social space. And it “suddenly” emerged that a large number of the so-called Syrian refugees were not Syrian at all and many were “economic migrants” and not war refugees at all (see youtube postings by “Syrian Girl” which seem to be relatively well-informed). And the government announced a clamp-down on border crossings.
    Now it is just unthinkable that the Germans had “suddenly” discovered that the refugee business grapevine had spread the word that “Germany was admitting all Syrians” – with all the predictable consequences.
    It is hard to tell whether there is actually a fracture in the German oligarchy, or whether they take turns playing “good cop bad cop” as they did with the financial rape of Greece.
    A sign that there might be a real fracture is the extraordinary speed – barely a week – between the time when Germany declared “open borders”, unlike those “nasty” Hungarians, and announcing what was basically a new Gastarbeiter programme (which apparently still stands at least for the Syrians…. remember those old Nazi connections in Damascus?), and the unexpected announcement that it would take the hard line. The “leftwing” oligarch media has been disoriented, and for the moment is still lambasting the Hungarian government for daring to defend its borders.
    And of course “Der Spiegel” has not just “suddenly” discovered that the US anti-Russian policy is harmful to the country.
    Things are moving almost too fast to comment: anyway my down-to-earth speculation is that Germany will “suddenly” realize the need for a common “European” (i.e. German-directed) policy on immigration and try to impose it on the other countries (yesterday Sept. 15th Germany “demanded” that Italy improve its immigrant identification procedures…). And possibly, though I’m not so convinced, a common “European” policy on the Syrian issue.
    And France? Well they appear to be toying with some sort of neo-colonial military intervention in Syria – if it happens and turns out to be anything like the Libyan disaster, I wouldn’t like to be living in Damascus. Unless the “announced” intervention is a roundabout way of trying to warn of US-Saudi meddling.*
    *Note: The BBC documentary “Bitter Lake” is the first “official” criticism of the UK-US alliance with Saudi Arabia and of the war in Afghanistan

    1. France would be well-advised not to intervene militarily; it is insane as policy and will only serve to generate more refugees and destabilize the mess further. It is face-palm stupid but the Cabal says “Jump!” and they ask, “How high?”

  15. If the “tools” the US has used to convince or coerce EU leaders to play bootlicker all these decades against the best interests of their constituents are failing, one new tool might be for the US to work with its Turkish “partner” to flood the EU with unwanted emigrants. Might be useful to ask — given the fragility of the debt-saturated world financial system — who benefits if the EU collapses.
