CONCERNING THAT ALLEGED GERMAN COUP D’ETAT BY ALLEGED ROYALISTS
One of the topics of discussion on everyone's lips is the recent alleged coup d'etat attempt in Germany, allegedly run by a group of royalists, or right wing MAGA-like groups, or embedded "ultra ring wingers" (code for Neo-Nazi) in the German state structure, or whatever. In fact, if I were to say what's uppermost on people's minds just judging by the materials sent to me this past week in my email inbox, I'd have to say that this story easily eclipses all others, and accordingly, I'm going to spend some time going over it, and sharing my "take" on it, for whatever it's worth.
Firstly, a shout out of thanks to all of you who shared articles - some of which are referenced below - on this story: L.G.L.R., T.M., V.S., T.R., M., P.G., S.D., and our friend and colleague, Bernard Grover, for all the articles linked here:
And last and by no means least, Bernard Grover's take on the restoration of royal symbolisms, and one of my "takes":
Rather than reviewing and commenting on quotations from these articles as is my usual practice, I want to jump right into my high octane speculations as these will more or less provide a summary of the articles' contents. The first thing that I suspect one must notice is the timing of this event. Increasingly I do not view the occurrence of events in isolation. My inclination is to assume their interconnectedness until proven otherwise, and while I realize this assumption contains its own methodological risks of massive misinterpretation, I think events of the past few years warrant such an approach; in the end, it saves a massive amount of time from having to argue for that assumption and then to argue a set of interpretations on its basis. We simply assume it, and proceed directly to the interpretations that it seems to imply.
Having done so, we notice several things about the timing: (1) it occurs after the death of Queen Elizabeth II and the accession of King Charles III in Great Britain and after several changes of government in that country; (2) it occurs concurrently with German Chancellor Scholz announcing a massive overhaul of German defense policy and posture, an overhaul that, let it be noted, appears also to be an economic and industrial stimulus package for German industry suffering under collapse of demand: when demand is needed for heavy industry, look to military expenditure; (3) it occurs when the USSA has embroiled itself and its European colonies and satrapies in a useless and dangerous war in the Ukraine, and after years of American promise-breaking and meddling with respect to that country and Russia; (4) it occurs when China is stepping up its pressure to woo American allies away from the West (think of Mr. Xi's recent trip to the Saudis), and finally (5) it occurs concurrently with German police also discovering two "moving" Chinese "police stations" in that country. The last time I looked, such extra-territorial jurisdictional exercise was frowned on in international law (except of course, for the USSA, which insists its citizens must continue to pay American taxes even if they live overseas...go figure). Finally, the event occurs concurrently with the ongoing financial and economic weakness of Europe, the EU, the European Central Bank, and of course, the whole FTX
Bankman-Fraud Bankman-Fried scandal, which of course involves the Ukraine and thereby affects European security.
I belabor the timing aspect of the event because, amid some attempts of western media to downplay the significance of the coup plot, and to emphasize German "hysteria" and so on (the BBC for example), the plain fact of the matter is that the timing indicates that the plot was a serious effort, not merely the plaything of a disgruntled and elderly European royal. Rest assured, had a similar event occurred in France or Italy or Austria to restore the Bourbons, or the Hapsburgs, or the Savoys, it would have been taken very seriously. This is not, in my opinion, hysteria on the part of the German government. In fact, as news continues to develop, we're informed that there were arrests in Austria and Italy as well, making one wonder why anyone from those countries would be involved in a German Putsch. We'll get back to that in a moment.
It's that word Putsch that I want to discuss for a moment. Coups d'etat are risky affairs, and more often fail than succeed, especially in a country like Germany where the government is "muscular", which is a nice way of saying that if you want to have a bad day, just cross a German policeman. Coups are not known as being all that successful in Germany. In fact, off the top of my head, I can't really think of any, except perhaps one, and it doesn't really qualify as a coup d'etat, and that was the collapse of Wilhelm II's support (and Quartermaster-General Erich Ludendorff's support) in the German General Staff in late 1918 that led to Wilhelm's abdication and self-exile in the Netherlands. Otherwise, coups in Germany have had a track record of colossal failure: the 1923 Beer Hall Putsch in Bavaria? Failure. The 1950s Naumann coup against Adenauer? Failure. The July 1944 Bomb Plot and Coup attempt against Hitler? Failure. The 1938 Generals' plot? That one didn't even get off the ground. So I'm not surprised that this one failed. If you think surveillance in the modern USSA is bad, you haven't been dealing with the BVD or BKA or BND lately, and trust me, they listen to everything in Germany, and always have.
What I'm more intrigued by is a question looming over all of this, that I have not yet seen be asked nor answered: given the size of this apparent conspiracy, why was no action taken earlier either by the plotters or by police? There is, in other words, something about the aspect of timing that we're not being told. Did the German security services delay a round up until they had more or less the complete outlines of the conspiracy? Or were they in fact forced to move ahead of schedule? I ask these questions, and particularly the last one, because if you followed the news reporting, the narrative seemed to subtly shift from royals wanting to reinstall an 1880s style imperial German monarchy, presumably with Prince Heinrich XIII as Kaiser und Koenig, to a group of "ultra-right" people with MAGA and Trump-like pretensions, a characterization that seems to me, on the surface, to be ludicrous because in all my years of dealing with Germans from boyhood until now, I've never met a single one on the left or right that even remotely resembles the American right wing Republican! My point is, the narrative shifted a bit, but for the moment, it appears the media is sticking with the royalist plot narrative.
And here is precisely where getting a handle on this story gets "prickly". We're being told that this was all about restoring some version of the old Second Reich, the imperial German Kaiserreich of 1871-1918. Why then were Austrians and Italians involved? Neither Austria, nor the Austrian Tyrol, were parts of the Second Reich. Nor is the family of Heinrich XIII the royal and imperial family of that Kaiserreich. THat family is, of course, the Von Hohenzollerns, and its current head, Prince Georg Friedrich von Hohenzollern und Preussen is very much alive and kicking. So, for that matter, is the revival of symbols of the old Kaiserreich in modern Germany (see my articles https://gizadeathstar.com/2019/07/things-or-rather-people-that-make-you-go-hmmm-the-hohenzollerns/ and https://gizadeathstar.com/2019/06/culture-corner-the-kaisers-castle-and-the-goosestep/). The only time Austria and large portions of Italy were part of the Reich was under the First Reich, or Holy Roman Empire of the German Nation. That may be a clue as to the ultimate aim and designs of the coup plotters, I do not know, for certainly many German royal families, including the Hohenzollerns, held the right of electors of the Holy Roman Emperors. After all, a "revived Roman Empire" is very much a part of the "dispensensationalist" template that I have long believed informs Mr. Globalooney's plans.
In short, my friend Bernard Grover in his article that I've linked above, has adequately outlined my (and my friend's) private discussions about a possible scenario of the "return of the royals", and I indeed think that this is a possibility in play. What Mr. Grover has done is to expand the context to include the royal and imperial houses of Asia as well, and while we're discussing the return of royal and imperial symbolism, do not forget that the ceremony of the installation of the Emperor Naruhito of Japan was broadcast on television just a few years ago. Could we indeed, as Mr. Grover summarizes this speculation, be looking at a "restoration" scenario:
With the increased use of royal symbols, the decay of democracy, and the rumblings of a return to bloodlines, are we seeing a move towards regional if not a global monarchy? Could the perceived gangland wars - by me and others - be the royal houses re-establishing territories, and even settling who gets to run the planet? Are we seeing the rise of the Fourth Reich, or return of the Second Reich? Did monarchy come to an end in the 20th century, or did they just let us run free until we made a (ahem) royal mess of things?
Assuming the rise of the royals explains many things - the all-out attack on the middle class, the moral and ethical decay of secular democracies, and the global desire for beneficent if not benign leadership.
It also explains the incessant expansion of Socialism. Socialism, after all, is defined by State ownership of everything, and once in place, is easily transferred to a royal bloodline - especially one with established roots and “rightful” claims. Ownership of everything by a single individual defines monarchy.
It would explain the push for absolute dependence on the State, from cradle to grave, much like the feudal peasants of yore. After all, if all property and sovereignty are vested in the monarch, doesn’t that mean we will “own nothing and be happy”? Isn’t that essentially the defining characteristic of a “subject” to the crown?
Indeed, is Mr. Xi's quest for "lifetime" appointments but a clever disguise for bringing back the Han Emperors? Are we looking at the attempt to create (twelve?) regional kingdoms held together by a global Imperator Rex? Again, possibly. Time will tell as we learn more about this story, but don't expect the media to cover it. I rather suspect the story will be quickly buried, and forgotten. But if this view of the possible scenario is correct, it needs to be followed closely. If I hear or obtain any information, I'll keep everyone posted.
The second possibility here is equally plausible, and that it that this story is one big distraction, using a very real (and apparently amateurish) coup plot as a crisis of opportunity, and that the real goal here is - like the Reichstag fire - to create a false flag to allow a declaration of emergency, and a crackdown on internal opposition, for whatever reason, though again, here, Herr Scholz's recent calls for a much more muscular German military and foreign policy provide one possible connecting motivation.
The bottom line: regardless of which of these two views, or anywhere on the spectrum between them, that one lies, I view this story as being very significant, and one to watch closely. Not only that, but I also view it as further confirmation of that speculation I and my friend have entertained in private conversation, that the royals are fed up, and may be privately entertaining the possibility of a return to the visible and direct, rather than hidden and remote, exercise of power.
See you on the flip side...
