Anschluss Now! Angela Merkel, the EU and the Greater German Co-Prosperity Sphere

Author bio:

Lenin once reportedly said: “Never waste a good crisis.”

It is apparently famous advice that Frau Angela Merkel, the German Federal Chancellor, has taken firmly to heart. Well, up to a point, because Frau Merkel has got one step further than Lenin , or whoever the eponymous owner of the well-worn quotation might have been. She is building a crisis out of a crisis.

The chief thrust of the radical policy proposals now emerging from Berlin is the prospect of SuperEurope, a tight, highly centralized European federal entity with Germany sitting at the hub. Some interpretations paint a different picture; that Frau Merkel is planning to ditch all surplus baggage – meaning those states regarded as highly indebted and thus a threat to the Eurozone – overboard.

This is the famous Two Speed Europe which has been in vogue for many years now. It is invariably fished out when some crisis, artificial or otherwise, clouds the European horizon. Current events are no exception. However, let us be clear. Germany (and by natural extension, France) are not remotely interested in a shrinking Europe.

Nor are the Bilderberg Club and the Trilateral Commission, who between them control the institutions of the European Union and a majority of the member state governments. They have not spent all these years constructing a European superstate only to chop it up with a hatchet.

The excitement has been stirred by a (deliberately) leaked dossier from the German Foreign Office. Most commentators have drawn the wrong conclusions. The kernel of the document is the plan for a European Monetary Fund (modeled on the IMF). This body would be empowered (again just like the IMF) to elbow aside elected administrations in those countries beleaguered by economic crisis.

By no mere irony, this is exactly the scenario we have just witnessed in Greece and Italy played out in real time. I have already written here that the usurpation of the elected government in Italy was a dress rehearsal coup d’état for the likewise eviction of other governments. Spain falls into the same category, because although the Spanish, unlike the Greeks and Italians, had a chance to vote, it was really no more than an endorsement of policies and strategies already decided in Brussels and Frankfurt.

The future of the EU will hinge on the German proposal for an internal Stability Union. When the Japanese occupied much of South East Asia before and during WW2, they had a similar idea. The Shinto fascist junta was driven by Japan’s hunger for material resources. To make the empire seem more acceptable to the newly conquered subject peoples, the authorities in Tokyo cooked up the ‘Greater East Asia Co-Prosperity Sphere.’

The Stability Union will work in a similar fashion. The membership will be restricted to the core states considered to be running a tight economic and fiscal ship. The basket cases will be sent to Emergency Ward Ten for the duration, until their economies recover under the direction (lash) of the EMF.

They will not be thrown to the margins and left there, although they may find it difficult to recover some vestige of their former democracy.

The next step is full blown political union, to which the basket cases can aspire once judged in fit shape. All fiscal and economic policy will henceforth be decided by the European Council, the European Central Bank and now the European Monetary Fund.

This will be the greatest surrender of sovereignty by the member states since the march to European unity began in the 1950s.

The German FO statement charts a straight course towards political union as soon as the Stability Fund is established. Given this is exactly what Chancellor Merkel has been saying in public, we can take it for granted that the document is not some speculative kite flying. These are the considered and adopted policies of the German Government.

Having spent time myself laboring on the building site of European unity, I can point to the absolute rule which states that whenever there is some grand proposal for a massive new surrender of sovereignty to the centralized institutions of the EU, it always succeeds.

These are the important milestones of the last two decades.

The Maastricht Treaty establishing the Eurozone and the main pillars of a union with greatly expanded powers (1992); the Treaty of Amsterdam (1997) built on Maastricht by extending the union’s purview to justice (formerly the sole preserve of member states), security and a common foreign policy; Nice (2001) agreed on enlargement to include (colonize) the ex-Soviet bloc states in Eastern Europe; and more recently the Lisbon Treaty (2007) formalized the overarching supranational nature of the EU.

Brussels never takes no for an answer. Stubborn Irish voters rejected the Treaty of Nice as a step too far from national sovereignty. A year later they were forced to vote again and this time got it right. In 2005, French and Dutch voters threw out the proposal for a binding European Constitution. The Lisbon Treaty recovered most of the lost ground two years later.

The aversion to democracy within the structures of the EU is very strong. This extends to the member states, who invariably avoid popular referenda, claiming that having been elected themselves is quite sufficient.

The negotiating document also explicitly examines ways to limit treaty changes to speed up the reforms. It indicates that Frau Merkel will tell Mr Cameron to rule out a popular EU vote in Britain.

The Berlin document makes the rather startling suggestion that the sweeping changes that will certainly be required to create the EMF and the Stability Union should anyway be fenced off from direct accountability to the electorates of Europe.

 

The document states: “Limiting the effect of the treaty changes to the euro zone states would make ratification easier, which would nevertheless be required by all EU member states .”

 

The British problem now rears its head. Given a chance, a referendum on EU membership in the Offshore Island would result in a resounding No echoing from one pole to the other. That Europe has never gained traction with the Brits is an under-statement. A few moments on the subject in the saloon bar of any pub will soon put you right.

So understandably the German Chancellor is keen to prevent David Cameron from holding a referendum. I wonder why she worries. He has already swept the issue off the table. The first big business for the British Government after MP’s trailed back from their summer vacations was a serious rebellion among Eurosceptic back bench Conservative MP’s demanding a euro referendum.

Cameron has equivocated many times about holding a European referendum, because it would split the Conservative party. However, his junior coalition partners, the Liberal Democrats, are avidly gung-ho pro-European. So he took the risk of resolving the issue once and for all.

With some agility, he allowed a full Commons vote; a simple staying in, yes or no referendum, or renegotiating the terms of membership. There will be neither, because there is not going to be any sort of referendum at all. The government would still have lost but for the opposition socialists joining with the main Conservative-Liberal coalition caucus. That’s the last that anyone will hear about the British people having any say in the matter.

After all, the prime minister constitutionally consulted parliament on the matter, and parliament is elected by popular vote. And he won a huge majority.

Now the punch line. The Stability Union is the brainchild of a core group around the great Bilderberger George Soros. It was Soros the currency speculator who broke the Bank of England and forced the UK out of the pre-Eurozone Exchange Rate Mechanism (ERM) back in 1992. He famously won a billion dollar bet.

Now Prometheus is armed with a new kind of fire. Perversely, his aim now is drag the UK back into the Eurozone and I think that he may succeed. Indeed, he may already have succeeded. First a spot of homework.

The so-called Eurozone crisis is merely an extension of the sub-prime and toxic credit derivative roller coaster that began in 2008-9. Much as it pains me to agree with Silvio Berlusconi, I am forced to concede that he is quite right as he goes about Italy today preaching ‘crisis, what crisis?’

The Eurozone ‘crisis’ erupted with force after the annual Bilderberg conclave in St Moritz in June this year. Occam’s Razor applies. If untoward events appear after the annual beanfeast of the world government clique, then you can be absolutely certain they are directly related.

Peter Mandelson, Blair’s former guru, was there, grinning away as ever at all these rich people. So was the UK finance minister ‘Boy George’ Osborne. He brought with him the rather peculiar Conservative backbencher Rory Stewart, a writer with a taste for hiking through wild country, a former soldier and Foreign Office official . This is a signal honor for a man who is a little over a year in politics. Already he is dubbed the ‘Secretary of State for Bilderberg’ around the bars and corridors of Westminster.

Unquestionably the German proposal was close to the top of the dialogue at St Moritz, alongside the pressing issue of the British Question and how to resolve it.

The Stability Union poses what is certain to be the biggest decision that Cameron is ever likely to take. The UK, which thinks of itself as the world's most important financial center, cannot afford to be wholly isolated from the Greater German-European Co-Prosperity Zone. Nor can she easily get in, trailing the baggage of the Pound Sterling, since the Union will be strictly Euro territory. (The same exact issue will confront Switzerland sooner rather than later, but that's another story altogether).

Something has to give. For the UK to find herself in the twilight zone with all those countries languishing in the intensive care block is unthinkable. It would mean reverting to the Continental System devised by Napoleon to lock the British out of Europe.

There is bitter medicine to swallow. The British people are unlikely to take kindly to finding themselves dragged by an enormous anschluss into an economic superstate dominated by Germany. The question for British politicians is whether they can afford to remain on the sidelines, no matter what the sentiments of the British people tell them to do.

The pound sterling and the euro have been drifting in the parity zone for some two years now. If they remained at par for any significant length of time, then the circumstances might be accommodating to a merger. That might be the safe docking procedure but it would still certainly ignite a great deal of politically-sapping domestic debate. But equally, it may be quite possible or even probable that Soros and his pals in the Bilderberg Club and the Trilateral Commission are thinking of tanking the pound altogether. Both scenarios are feasible, but I fancy given current events in Europe, the latter will be the chosen course.

It is definitely not a co-incidence that the German proposals have appeared as two governments – and effectively three, counting Spain forced into early elections – have been knocked over.

The British economy is in big difficulty, and the austerity program devised by ‘Boy George’ Osborne will only worsen matters. Could that be, post St. Moritz, intentional? It sounds much more like the old Soros style, doesn’t it?

Time to hoist the storm cones.
