Parallels between Pre-WWI and Pre-World-War Three | How France and Britain Were Threatened by the German Empire | Part One

One of the oldest currencies in the history of mankind is the British Pound going all the way back to Anglo Saxon times in the 8th Century A.D. “. . . From 760 onward till around 1158, pennies were made from the finest silver that the Crown could get, as opposed to today’s pennies made from copper or metal. The sterling pound (in French: £ivre Sterling), in terms of the word was introduced in 1158 because over 90% of it was made from silver itself. The first gold noble coin was introduced into Britain in 1344. The shilling was introduced in 1487, while a new version of the pound was revealed in 1489. As you can see the changes from the 760 to the 1489 shows how quick currency has evolved as the monarchy asserted itself as the leader of how currency should be used. Gold has always been an important part of British currency history as in this period; it was also used to finance whatever was needed in the country by the aristocracy and the gentry . . .credit:

By the end of the 19th century, after Germany finally clobbered France in the 1870-1871 Franco-Prussian war, the newly created German Empire started reuniting under Kaiser Wilhelm II’s leadership (1888 to 1918), thus creating an economic threat to globalists empire-hungry Britain and France.  As a reaction to this German-Austrian trade threat aka trade war, Britain, with its Merchandise Marks Act of 1887 gave birth to the “Made in Germany” label. “. . . This label was originally introduced in Britain . . . to mark foreign produce more obviously, as foreign manufactures had been falsely marking inferior goods with the marks of renowned British manufacturing companies and importing them into the United Kingdom. Most of these were found to be originating from Germany, whose government had introduced a protectionist policy to legally prohibit the import of goods in order to build up domestic industry.”

The British Law “Made in Germany” was initially supposed to achieve two things:

  1. Stamp imported German products as third rated and of inferior quality
  2. Promote “British Craftsmanship” to British citizenry 

___Screen Shot 08-17-17 at 04.01 PMbbbToday, very few Germans acknowledge the fact that Germany owes their world renowned “Made in Germany” stamp of quality, which initially was intended as a stamp of third-rateness, to Britain.  By the late 19th century, Britain was becoming an industrial cul-de-sac or a business dwarf compared to the newly created German Empire and its 1882 Triple Alliance with Austria and Italy.

It was the German economy that threatened Britain and France prior to the start of World War One and certainly not the other way around as French and British history books would like us to believe. It was Britain that was becoming a bankrupt “World Empire” as British Gold supplies (British Pound backed up by Gold until 1914) were melting like snow in the sun, to the profit of Germany’s economy, which became a threat to Britain.   

It is worth noticing that Britain had enjoyed a British Pound, first backed up by silver and later on by gold until the gold standards were removed first time in 1914.  By the end of the 19th century, Britain’s economy was going from bad to worse, forced to borrow from its Central Bank to finance a much needed war that was supposed, as Winston Churchill would later on say during World War One, ” [to] smash the strength of the German people once and for all.”

Due to late nineteen century inequality of trade between Britain and the new kid around the block Germany, Britain was losing much of its gold. thus threatening the British Empire to its very core. Why did Britain and France, via the Dictate of Versailles, claimed 132 billion gold marks  (USD 450 billion in today’s dollars) from Germany? Gold Marks: not paper money as issued by the Bank of England established in 1694. Britain’s five centuries of ongoing wars with France, from the Hundred Years War in 1337 to the 1815 Napoleonic wars, had already left major scars on its economy.  

Anti-Germanistic feelings have often been expressed by duplicitous France but also hypocritical Britain. “Even today, American and British media concentrates what scant attention it bestows on anything German almost completely from a negative perspective until the point where the very word “German” is synonymous with ‘bad.’ German historical figures of greatness are rarely mentioned or their contributions are ignored, “misappropriated” or minimized. We are subjected to hundreds of dated British serials and sit-coms on public television which obsess about evil ‘Germans.'” Source:

Let’s take a quick look at the British Automobile industry. Is there such a thing? Where are the fine “Made in Britain” Automobiles such as Daimler Benz, BMW (Bayerische Motor Werke), Audi, Volkswagen (VW) and Porsche? Where do we find “Made in England” craftsmanship in this 21st century?

Pre-WWI Britain became so fearful of the German Empire that its elite planned its utter destruction. Outrageous right? Well let Geopolitical News remind you of renowned World War I and II veteran and co-conspirator of the Lusitania’s sinking (Part One and Part Two) by the Germans: Winston Churchill’s quote on the Germans:  

Clipboard_Image 011_F

It is worth remembering that by the 1880’s, the newly create German Empire had caught up with the wealth of Britain, the 19th Century Industrial Revolution leader, to even surpass British steel production and the length of Britain’s railroad tracks. The German navy, thanks to the creation of its Imperial Navy started challenging the British one, thus the manufacturing of one of the world’s fastest sailing vessels at that time: the RMS Lusitania. Later on, the British navy transformed its RMS Lusitania into a warship that would end up being sunk by a German submarine near the coast of Ireland on May the seventh of 1915 (Part One and Part Two.)

Similar to Pre-WWI Britain and France struggling with their economies and threatened by industrial German powerhouse, London, Paris and Washington are again losing their industrial and financial footing; not only towards China (manufacturing most Western goods) and Russia (exporting raw materials) but also towards industrious and thrifty Germany.

The US Dollar, which became the world reserve currency after the 1944 Bretton Woods Agreements is dying of a slow death as reflected by international crude oil prices.

The Petrodollar was introduced by the US to the Saudis in 1974 following an oil crisis induced a year earlier by U.S. Envoy Henry Kissinger with the quadrupling of oil prices from three US Dollar to twelve US Dollar a barrel.

The Empire of Chaos strikes again: Declaration of U.S. sanctions thus war against Russia, Germany and Austria?

Amidst geopolitical cacophony, U.S. President Donald J. Trump and Владимир Путин (Vladimir Putin) will meet for the first time in Hamburg, Germany, against the backdrop of the well-known narrative of an alleged Russian collusion and meddling into the 2016 U.S. Presidential Election.  What some astute observers describe here as the ongoing Neocon (Neo-Conservative) Washington fascist refrain. But naturally, the nefariousness of the Washington Régime and its countless destruction of lives and countries is “a given” and a “legitimate act of grandeur” as the U.S upholds its “Liberty and FreedomLeitmotiv, shoving it down the throat of our international community with tanks, missiles, weaponry and wars if necessary.

As the US/EU fascist cavalry, within the cover-up of NATO, expands East, the amount of attempted color revolutions, coup d’états and deaths rise to a level never mentioned in the Mainstream Media (CNN, BBC, Frankfurter Allgemeine Zeitung, Le Monde, Süd Deutsche Zeitung, the Washington Post and the New York Times) fake news narrative.  Babylon is ready to defend its Bretton Woods Reserve Currency Status (USD/EUR/GBP/YEN, and Chinese Renminbi since 2015) with wars if necessary and it has become ___screen-shot-09-17-16-at-07-09-amnecessary Ladies and Gentlemen!

Swiss historian Daniele Ganser in his brilliant work (unfortunately only in German): Die Illegale Kriege der NATO / The Illegal Wars of NATO, coins post-WWII U.S bête noire hegemon as an “Empire” being responsible for the death of at least 300 million lives since the end of World War II.


But this time, the (U.S.) Empire of Chaos is isolating itself again, wanting now to supply LNG (Liquefied Natural Gas) and replace our Russian gas delivery and the upcoming €9.2 billion Nord Stream 2 pipeline project under the Baltic Sea that will double Russian gas delivery to Europe. Washington is trying to coerce Germany, Austria, France and Britain into buying U.S. energy: This time it won’t wash, Chancellor Merkel, French President Emmanuel Macron and Co. showed the Washington Empire of Chaos the finger sign threatening the U.S. with retaliations and sanctions. And by the way Сергей Викторович Лавров (Sergej Viktorovitch Lavrov), who was in Paris just one day before G20 Hamburg, confirmed that France & Germany will resume normal trade partnership with Russia thus by-passing the Washington fascist demands.

Petro-Dollar vs. Petro-Yuan geo-financial war: Syria under US-led aggression: Part One

The ruse and masquerade offered by the mainstream media propaganda revisited as “fake news” is hitting a record low. Newly elected U.S. President Donald J. Trump chided reporter Jim Acosta about CNN’s reporting style: “I am changing it [describing CNN] from fake news . . . [to] very fake news!” As far as the international community is concerned, no one has requested or invited the United States to barge in the sovereignty of the Syrian nation as opposed to Russia who was requested to do so. There is here a massive geopolitical nuance the Mainstream Media dinosaurs regularly fail to mention.  

Mainstream Media (MSM) would want the gullible Westerner to believe that the United States, Britain, Israel and France (war-criminal French President Sarkozy bombing Libya back to the Stone Age) are fighting terrorism in Afghanistan, Iraq, Iran, Yemen, Sudan, Libya, Egypt and The Ukraine. But nothing could be further from the truth. ISIS is a western world product, which started in the name of Al Qaeda. AL Qaeda, led by former U.S. Ally Osama Bin Laden, was created by the U.S. “Criminal” or Central Intelligence Agency: CIA to fight the Soviet Union’s invasion of Afghanistan between 1979 and 1989. Al Qaeda is a CIA asset created by the United States of America, sponsored, trained and used as a geopolitical terrorist tool to coerce countries to bow down and compel to the Washington neo-conservative (fascist) narrative.

US-led terrorism is aimed at destabilizing strategic countries that dare to challenge its Anglo Saxon geopolitical and geofinancial interests. We have ample proof of the devastation the Empire of Chaos has left behind when we look at the U.S.-intervention in Iraq, Afghanistan, Libya, Syria, and The Ukraine to name just a few.

Adrian Salbuchi, International Consultant and Author summarizes U.S. “spread of democracy” by the following six steps:

—Target a county by calling it first a “rogue state”; Libya [One of world largest oil producer) and Qaddafi to introduce a Gold Dinar and Iraq: prior to U.S. invasion Saddam Hussein was planning to sell oil in EUR instead of Petrodollar.

—Support of “local terrorists” via U.S. NGOs and calling them “freedom fighters.”

—Destruction and genocide of local citizens via UN Sanctions such as Serbia and Libya.

—Spreading of lies and propaganda via the “international Community” expressed by Western News Outlets: Washington Post, New York Times, MSNBC, the BBC, Le Monde and the Frankfurter Allgemeine Zeitung.

—“Democratic Liberation” via Color Revolution and U.S. invasion: Kosovo, Iraq, Afghanistan, Egypt, Libya, Syria, The Ukraine and Sudan.

—Theft of local assets such as the 144 tons of Libyan gold or the 31 tons of Ukrainian gold as well as oil calling it “Foreign Investment and Reconstruction.”

The U.S. Empire of Chaos and its surrogate states (Britain, France and Israel) wage their international campaigns under the “spread-of-democracy” charade and the “fight against terrorism” subterfuge. The agile and swift U.S.-CIA fake-news propaganda machine is well lubricated: An exemplary reaction after a U.S. warplane shot down a Syrian army jet last Sunday in the Syrian Southern Raqqa country side: “The U.S. Central Command later issued a statement saying the Syrian plane was downed ‘in collective self-defense of Coalition-partnered forces (SIC).'” When President Saddam Hussein of Iraq started invoicing crude oil in EUR, US war followed shortly after. When Libya was on the verge of establishing a Gold Dinar, staunch U.S. allies France and Britain bombed the richest African country back to the Stone Age. When President Bashar al-Assad of Syria started supporting the South-Pars LNG (Liquid Natural Gas) pipeline: Iran-Iraq-Syria towards Europe instead of the U.S. controlled North Field from Qatar, Saudi Arabia, Syria on to Turkey and Europe; Assad sided with Russia and Gazprom thus threatening the U.S. Interests by taking side with the Sino-Russian Petro-Yuan interests.  Bashar al-Assad threatened and still threatens the dying U.S. Petrodollar hegemony established by Henry Kissinger in 1973: full Stop. This is the only reason for the war in Syria. Defending the Sino-Russian Petro-Yuan interests is a red flag that does not fit well with the Washington neo-conservative fiat paper money USD fascist régime.

___Screen Shot 06-20-17 at 02.40 PMaaa

The bottom line is currency warfare between the bankrupt Western coalition axis of fiat paper money: U.S., EU, Britain and Japan versus the BRICS: Brazil, Russia, India, China and South Africa.

U.S. Exceptionalism and U.S. Global Terror Management Strategy | Oligarchs and Neocons’ Destructive Agenda (Part Five)

Those who corrupt the public mind are just as evil as those who steal from the public purse.” —Adlai Stevenson | 1900 — 1965 | 23rd Vice President of the United States

In Part One, Part Two, Part Three and Part Four of this series, we saw how the U.S. has become a contested (by Russia and China) geopolitical Hegemon. We reviewed the illegal attacks and following wars on Serbian Kosovo and Iraq: Perfect examples of the neocons’ favorite military doctrine of preemptive strike. We analyzed the irrefutable evidence of U.S.-neocon mainstream media propaganda backed up by some pristine U.S. publications such as: The New York Times, The Washington Post, or even the U.S. Presidency.

John Pilger once wrote: “Journalism is the first casualty of war,” and mainstream Western news outlets have become as lethal and war-mongering as former Soviet Union (USSR) and German Democratic Republic (GDR) propaganda tools. Just like the USSR (Part Four) was defending its crumbling empire, the West has jumped on the propaganda bandwagon and rehypothicated the notion of a democratic state into a daunting Wagnerian Leitmotiv of “freedom, liberation and reform.” An alleged “democratizationZeitgeist has followed as this neocon doctrine has literally been shoved down the throats of countries like Afghanistan, Iraq, Egypt and Ukraine and this, regardless of local national opinions and interests.

In his wonderful work: America’s Deadliest Export: Democracy, The Truth About US Foreign Policy and Everything Else, William Blum blows off the neocon “democracy and freedom narrative” to expose the real geopolitical and geofinancial situation on the ground:  “. . . [B]ut freedom [in Iraq] indeed reign[s] — for the great multinationals to extract everything they can from Iraq’s resources and labor without the hindrance of [Iraqi] public interest laws, environmental regulations, or worker protections (emphasis Geopoliticalnews).”

__geopoliticsnews_f_mainstream-madia-neocon-propaganda_1Mulling over these last three quotes and comparing them with the first GDR one, helps put things into perspective. Thus, one may wonder how educated journalists like Thomas Friedman, Michael Gerson and David Brooks could churn out such literary neocon gobbledygook and gibberish. What could such book authors and columnist luminaries teach their kids about character, honesty and truth? Could these political point-scoring neocon stooges have become pathological liars suffering mythomania? One day, they too will have joined the shameful and despicable group of propagandists and will have added their names to a list of fascist “collaborateurs” (French euphemism for traitors) who, just like the Vichy deserters, will have contributed to the shame, disgrace and destruction of U.S. society and its citizens.

Julian Casablanca recently asked world expert Canadian American Dr. Henry Giroux “What entities are more powerful banks or nations?” Dr. Henry Giroux answered: “I think that now, nations are controlled by financial interests: Hedge funds and banks clearly control the U.S. Government. If you look at the number of lobbyists auditing any person in Congress, you know it is just overwhelming. Policies are basically written for corporations, I think the notion of State, of Governance being something that is being representative of [the] people, it is not just simply a lie, not just simply a myth, it is a distortion and complete misrepresentation and I will give you an example: Princeton did a study, a few years ago, and looked at policies over a 30 — 40 years period: 95% of those policies had nothing to do with the American People. Nothing! And Princeton concluded . . . that we no longer live in a democracy, we live in an oligarchy: Oligarchy meaning a government controlled by the rich (emphasis throughout Geopoliticalnews).”

Geopoliticalnews often uses three expressions to describe our 21st Century neocon Nazi fascist power grab takeover:

  • Plutocrat | Cambridge Dictionary: “Someone who becomes powerful because they are rich.” A heavy hitter, authoritarian, autocrat, autocratic, big beast, despot, dictator, dictatorial, establishment, figurehead, grey eminence, heavy, potentate, power broker, strongman, tyrant, voiceless.
  • Oligarch | “A form of government in which all power is vested in a few persons” or “In a dominant class or clique; government by the few”; “A state or organization so ruled”; “The persons or class so ruling.”
  • Kleptocrat | Merriam-Webster Dictionary: “Government by those who seek chiefly status and personal gain at the expense of the governed.”

Neocons promote:

  • National socialism (born in pre-WWII Germany as National Sozialismus
  • Financial feudalism led by oligarchs and plutocrats
  • Pro-Corporate trade “partnership campaigns”such as TTIP, TPP, NAFTA, CETA and TISA
  • Neo-Stalinism propaganda for wealthy oligarchs
  • Lawless and permissive liberalism or destruction of traditional Judeo-Christian societal structures
  • Removal of God and His laws, or any signs of His sovereignty as Creator and Ruler of the universe and mankind
  • One world borderless plutocracy (New World Order)
  • Global theft of countries’ assets  replaced by worthless fiat paper money issued by the private central bankster criminality of the worst kind: FED (the U.S. Federal Reserve), BOE (Bank of England), ECB (European Central Bank), BOJ (Bank of Japan), World Bank, IMF (International Monetary Fund), and last but not least the BIS: Bank of International Settlements | Basel, Switzerland | The Central Bank of all Central Banks.

Are our societies becoming dehumanized, totalitarian, crippled by environmental disasters and cataclysmic decline of traditional societal values? Is this 21st century unfolding in front of our very eyes promoting the shapes of a cacotopian society as described in George Orwell’s Nineteen Eighty-Four novel?

Welcome to 21st century dystopian neo-Stalinist socialist capitalism

How the USA Created Al-Qaeda and the ISIS Terror Group

Incisive article originally published by GR in September 2014.  Terror attacks or mass shootings allegedly perpetrated by the ISIS [IS, ISIL, Al Qaeda, Al Nustra, Daesh, The Islamist State] the question that should be asked: who are the State sponsors of  Al Qaeda and ISIS?  (M.Ch. GR Editor).
Geopolitics_F_Wordle_01“Much like Al Qaeda, the Islamic State (ISIS) is made-in-the-USA, an instrument of terror designed to divide and conquer the oil-rich Middle East and to counter Iran’s growing influence in the region.  The fact that the United States has a long and torrid history of backing terrorist groups will surprise only those who watch the news and ignore history.
The CIA first aligned itself with extremist Islam during the Cold War era. Back then, America saw the world in rather simple terms:
  • On one side, the Soviet Union and Third World nationalism, which America regarded as a Soviet tool;
  • On the other side, Western nations and militant political Islam, which America considered an ally in the struggle against the Soviet Union.
The director of the National Security Agency under Ronald Reagan, General William Odom recently remarked, ‘by any measure the U.S. has long used terrorism. In 1978-79 the Senate was trying to pass a law against international terrorism – in every version they produced, the lawyers said the U.S. would be in violation.'”
__USA_F_ISIS-DAESH-Terrorism_01During the 1970′s the CIA used the Muslim Brotherhood [A Nazi Fascist group who already had very close ties to the German Third Reich] in Egypt as a barrier, both to thwart Soviet expansion and prevent the spread of Marxist ideology [the very reason why the Khazarian Mafia hired Adolf Hitler in the 1930’s to stop the spread of communism they themselves had exported to Russia via the Bolshevik Revolution] among the Arab masses. The United States also openly supported Sarekat Islam against Sukarno in Indonesia, and supported the Jamaat-e-Islami terror group against Zulfiqar Ali Bhutto in Pakistan. Last but certainly not least, there is Al Qaeda.
Al Qaeda a U.S. database of thousands of Islamist extremists
Lest we forget, the CIA gave birth to Osama Bin Laden and breastfed his organization during the 1980′s. Former British Foreign Secretary, Robin Cook, told the House of Commons that Al Qaeda was unquestionably a product of Western intelligence agencies. Mr. Cook explained that Al Qaeda, which literally means an abbreviation of “the database” in Arabic, was originally the computer database of the thousands of Islamist extremists, who were trained by the CIA and funded by the Saudis, in order to defeat the Russians in Afghanistan.
__USA_F_ISIS-DAESH-Terrorism_02America’s relationship with Al Qaeda has always been a love-hate affair. Depending on whether a particular Al Qaeda terrorist group in a given region furthers American interests or not, the U.S. State Department either funds or aggressively targets that terrorist group. Even as American foreign policy makers claim to oppose Muslim extremism, they knowingly foment it as a weapon of foreign policy. The Islamic State is its latest weapon that, much like Al Qaeda, is certainly backfiring. ISIS recently rose to international prominence after its thugs began beheading American journalists. Now the terrorist group controls an area the size of the United Kingdom.
In order to understand why the Islamic State has grown and flourished so quickly, one has to take a look at the organization’s American-backed roots. The 2003 American invasion and occupation of Iraq created the pre-conditions for radical Sunni groups, like ISIS, to take root. America, rather unwisely, destroyed Saddam Hussein’s secular state machinery and replaced it with a predominantly Shiite administration. The U.S. occupation caused vast unemployment in Sunni areas, by rejecting socialism and closing down factories in the naive hope that the magical hand of the free market would create jobs. Under the new U.S.-backed Shiite regime, working class Sunni’s lost hundreds of thousands of jobs. Unlike the white Afrikaners in South Africa, who were allowed to keep their wealth after regime change, upper class Sunni’s were systematically dispossessed of their assets and lost their political influence. Rather than promoting religious integration and unity,
American policy in Iraq exacerbated sectarian divisions and created a fertile breading ground for Sunni discontent, from which Al Qaeda in Iraq took root.
The Islamic State of Iraq and Syria (ISIS) used to have a different name: Al Qaeda in Iraq. After 2010 the group re-branded and refocused its efforts on Syria.
There are essentially three wars being waged in Syria:
  • One between the government and the rebels
  • Another between Iran and Saudi Arabia
  • And yet another between America and Russia
__USA_F_ISIS-DAESH-TerrorismIt is this third, neo-Cold War battle that made U.S. foreign policy makers decide to take the risk of arming Islamist rebels in Syria, because Syrian President, Bashar al-Assad, is a key Russian ally. Rather embarrassingly, many of these Syrian rebels have now turned out to be ISIS thugs, who are openly brandishing American-made M16 Assault rifles.

America’s Middle East policy revolves around oil and Israel. The invasion of Iraq has partially satisfied Washington’s thirst for oil, but ongoing air strikes in Syria and economic sanctions on Iran have everything to do with Israel. The goal is to deprive Israel’s neighboring enemies, Lebanon’s Hezbollah and Palestine’s Hamas, of crucial Syrian and Iranian support.

ISIS is not merely an instrument of terror used by America to topple the Syrian government; it is also used to put pressure on Iran.

The last time Iran invaded another nation was in 1738. Since independence in 1776, the U.S. has been engaged in over 53 military invasions and expeditions. Despite what the Western media’s war cries would have you believe, Iran is clearly not the threat to regional security, Washington is. An Intelligence Report published in 2012, endorsed by all sixteen U.S. intelligence agencies, confirms that Iran ended its nuclear weapons program in 2003. Truth is, any Iranian nuclear ambition, real or imagined, is as a result of American hostility towards Iran, and not the other way around.

America is using ISIS in three ways:
  • To attack its enemies in the Middle East,
  • To serve as a pretext for U.S. military intervention abroad,
  • And at home to foment a manufactured domestic threat, used to justify the unprecedented expansion of invasive domestic surveillance.
By rapidly increasing both government secrecy and surveillance, Mr. Obama’s government is increasing its power to watch its citizens, while diminishing its citizens’ power to watch their government. Terrorism is an excuse to justify mass surveillance, in preparation for mass revoltThe so-called “War on Terror” should be seen for what it really is: a pretext for maintaining a dangerously oversized U.S. military. The two most powerful groups in the U.S. foreign policy establishment are:
  • The Israel lobby, which directs U.S. Middle East policy
  • The Military-Industrial-Complex, which profits from the former group’s actions
Geopolitics_F_Wordle_02Since George W. Bush declared the “War on Terror” in October 2001, it has cost the American taxpayer approximately 6.6 trillion dollars and thousands of fallen sons and daughters; but, the wars have also raked in billions of dollars for Washington’s military elite. In fact, more than seventy American companies and individuals have won up to $27 billion in contracts for work in postwar Iraq and Afghanistan over the last three years, according to a recent study by the Center for Public Integrity. According to the study, nearly 75 per cent of these private companies had employees or board members, who either served in, or had close ties to, the executive branch of the Republican and Democratic administrations, members of Congress, or the highest levels of the military.
In 1997, a U.S. Department of Defense report stated, “the data show a strong correlation between U.S. involvement abroad and an increase in terrorist attacks against the U.S.” Truth is, the only way America can win the “War On Terror” is if it stops giving terrorists the motivation and the resources to attack America. Terrorism is the symptom; American imperialism in the Middle East is the cancer.
Put simply, the War on Terror is terrorism; only, it is conducted on a much larger scale by people with jets and missiles.
