Divide et Impera – Anti-German Hatred Distracts from Real Problems
After German soldiers were accused of skewering Belgian babies on their bayonets and chopping off their hands out of mere sadism during WWI, and after Germans had allegedly fabricated lampshades from human skin during WWII, the claim is today that Germany is on the verge of subduing all of Europe. In Greece, Spain, and Italy fairy tales about a “Fourth Reich” are circulating. Il Giornale writes:
Now they’re coming back, this time not with cannons but with the Euro. […] we are to accept everything, to bow down to the new Kaiser called Angela Merkel, who now wants to command in our homeland as well.
As a private person it is difficult to make one’s voice heard against the lies of the big media in a short article, aimed at as many readers as possible. Many facts prove, however, that the anti-German hate propaganda is at odds with the truth.
Merkel: A Vassal Becomes “Empress”
According to the statistics (Franz-Ulrich Willeke: Deutschland, Zahlmeister der EU, 2011 – Germany, the EU’s paymaster) the Federal Republic of Germany has remitted 324 billions of €uros to the EU since the reunification in 1990 (that is 45.1% of the EU budget!) and has received only 178 billions of €uros – the “rescue fund” not included. That is to say: Germany has made a present of 146 billions of €uros to other countries during this period. At the same time, Germany has been highly indebted since the 1960s, and money has been lacking for many things (public transport, theaters, schools, roads, pensions, etc.). Why, this being the case, does Germany pay for others?
Germany has been an occupied country since 1945; today there are about 100,000 American and British troops in the country, whose presence is paid for by the German tax-payer. In November 2011, Finance Minister Wolfgang Schäuble stated at a bank summit in Frankfurt that Germany has actually not been sovereign since 1945. The background of this statement is the plan (also propagated by politicians such as Monti, Draghi, and Barroso) to completely abolish the European nation states. Merkel and many more politicians proclaim that Israel’s well-being is part of the Federal Republic’s reason of state. (Israel is a state which yearly receives high amounts of money, armaments, and support of all kinds from Germany.) Can a country which is not sovereign subdue Europe? Is Merkel an empress or a vassal?
The EU and the €uro are not German projects and they were not invented by France (respectively François Mitterand) neither – however, France had the biggest benefits from them over a long period and therefore was instrumental in implementing them (see Herse’s German article „Die Mär von der deutsch-französischen Freundschaft II“). The EU is the consequent further development of the “European Recovery Program” (in Germany known as the “Marshall-Plan”) which was started in 1947 by the USA and conceived to create structures which would permit the superpower to exercise influence on the whole geopolitical region.
As outlined above, the Federal Republic of Germany does not at all profit financially from the EU, and the €uro but is under attack because of the role it is forced to play with regard to it. This has always been well known by German politicians, but, given the country’s rank as a vassal, they had no other choice than to join the EU and the €uro zone.
However, many politicians in Germany and other countries meanwhile seem to identify themselves with international high finance, which is the €uro’s real beneficiary. Merkel is an anti-German politician. Unfortunately the media, which depend on high finance, portray her differently. They tell the Italians, Spanish, and Greeks that Merkel (= the Germans) is out for colonizing them, and they tell the Germans that “lazy” Greeks etc. are squandering German money.
Who does receive the money? The banks, and all the rest have to suffer for their sake. Meanwhile it happens more and more frequently that Germans are offended abroad as a result of Merkel’s politics, respectively of the media coverage and the politicians’ lies.
The Euro: Monopoly Money and Tool of International High Finance
The American Federal Reserve is a private banking consortium, holding the monopoly on printing money and lending it at interest to the United States, which in turn is liable for it with all its national property. This means the Fed lends out monopoly money, the production of which costs only a tiny percentage of its nominal value and which is accepted as legal tender for the only reason that this is stated in the rules of the game (=laws). This entitles them to either claim the repayment of this money, including interest. or, in case this cannot be accomplished, to claim real assets such as property, for example. The state itself is not allowed to print money but only to collect taxes. In the face of further expenditures (especially because of expensive wars, which are, we should not be surprised, promoted by high finance), the national debt will rise inevitably, until eventually national bankruptcy is no longer avoidable and the Fed can collect the collateral. The same concept applies to the Bank of England, founded two centuries earlier, and to the €uro as well, although in a more complicated way. Congruously Benjamin Shalom Bernanke now calls for the need of a Fed in Europe as well.
The €uro was created to gather as many European countries as possible in a common currency system. The resulting low interest rates (which were especially due to the strong economic performance of Germany) were to lure Southern European countries into ever more indebtedness without worrying. The pretext of “European solidarity,” called for by politicians and the media, enables international high finance to seize all the national property as well as the realty of all of Europe.
By downgrading suddenly and drastically the deeply indebted Southern European countries, the big US rating agencies, which are controlled by high finance, started a vicious cycle of rising loan interest, increasingly rising indebtedness, and, as a consequence, always lower ratings.
In order to “rescue” these countries and the €uro, countries such as Germany are forced to run deeper into debt as well, and each time a “rescue measure” turns out to be not sufficient, these countries are forced to concede even more money in order to avoid the money for the preceding “rescue measures” being spent in vain.
This game will be played until even the strongest European countries are irretrievably indebted, and all the property serving as asset backing for national, commercial, and private debts, falls to the banks, which, for their part, belong to international high finance.
Even prior to this, states – this is currently the case of Greece – will be forced to sell public property, which is bought up on the cheap with Dollars (also coming from China!), as long as these assets are still of value.
Admittedly, the Dollar will later go the same way as the €uro, but as it is still useful as “world currency” to buy up Europe, the €uro currency system must be destroyed in a controlled crash before.
And to make sure that not a single country can escape from this expropriation program, the ESM system (which, according to the treaty, cannot be legally quit or annulled!) was created; it is currently being ratified by the governments of all countries in the Euro zone.
As you can see, the situation is quite different from what is depicted in the mass media. Merkel is not a German “empress” but at best a handmaid of international high finance who is pushing the Germans and all of Europe into ruin. Presumably many questions are now arising in your mind. Unfortunately it is not possible to answer all of them in this article, but with the knowledge now you dispose of now, you are able to do further research by yourself. It is crucial to know that the €uro harms all European peoples and that the actual culprits distract from this by their vicious propaganda.
