U.S. Exceptionalism and U.S. Global Terror Management Strategy (Part Two)

___screen-shot-09-12-16-at-12-31-amPolish-American political scientist and geostrategist Zbigniew Brzezinski and his monumental geopolitical work:The Grand Chessboard”, is a must read if we want to better understand 21st century U.S. Hegemon Unipolar World priorities. (Former) Imperialist Atlantic Europe (Portugal, Spain, France, Belgium, The Netherlands and Britain) did rule Europe and the world up to the 1870’s until Continental Europe: Italy (grandiose contributor to modern banking system and the Renaissance) and Germany  “showed up”most likely  feeling left out and wanting a piece of the geopolitical pie. In 1879, Germany and Austria-Hungary formed what is known as the Dual Alliance which became the Triple Alliance with the addition of Italy in 1882. In the late second half of the 19th century and beginning of the 20th century (1880 — 1910), the German Empire was to become an economic powerhouse: Its economy rivaled and surpassed imperialistic Britain and France:

“The speed of Germany’s advance to industrial maturity after 1890 was breathtaking. The years from 1895 to 1907 witnessed a doubling of the number of workers engaged in machine building, from slightly more than one-half million to well over a million. An immediate consequence of expanding industrial employment was a sharp drop in emigration; from an average of 130,000 people per year in the 1880s, the outflow dropped to 20,000 per year in the mid-1890s. The surplus population continued to leave Prussia’s eastern provinces, but the destination was the growing and multiplying factories of Berlin and the Ruhr rather than the Americas. Earlier British fears of German competition were now fully justified. While Britain produced about twice as much steel as Germany during the early 1870s, Germany’s steel production exceeded Britain’s in 1893, and by 1914 Germany was producing more than twice as much steel as Britain. Moreover, only one-third of German exports in 1873 were finished goods; the portion rose to 63 percent by 1913. Germany came to dominate all the major Continental markets except France.”(Source: Encyclopedia Britannica)

___bpg_screen-shot-09-11-166-at-06-30-pmDue to its unbalance of trade payments towards Germany, Britain got so worried about losing its gold (The British Pound was then backed up by gold) that in 1887, it issued theMade in GermanyMerchandise Marks Act intended at degrading German products as shoddy compared to the renowned “British manufacturing standards” (sic). Obviously the unintended consequence is the fact that “Made in Germany” became, and remains to this very day, a worldwide seal of first class workmanship and quality. Where is the French, British or U.S. equivalent to Audi, Mercedes Benz, Porsche, Volkswagen, BMW (Bayerische Motor Werke) fine German automobiles? Was this one of the reasons why the Washington neocons have lassoed Volkswagen, for a while the first automobile manufacturer in the world, with a 15 billion USD fine and 3.000 of their cars were blown up in the Tianjin catastrophe?

At the turn of the 20th Century, the German Empire (with Austria, Hungary and Italy) had already become a Post-Industrial Revolution threat to Britain and France unchallenged Imperialists powers. I would like to  suggest that this could have been one of the core reasons why France and Britain needed Germany’s destruction (WWI) “once and for all” as stated by the great Sir Winston Churchill:

“You must understand that this war is not against Hitler or National Socialism, but against the strength of the German people, which is to be smashed once and for all, regardless of whether it is in the hands of Hitler or a Jesuit priest.”

___geopolitics_f_bankster_woodrow-wilson

Shortly after the newly (1913) created Private Federal Reserve, thanks to corrupt U.S. President Woodrow Wilson’s acquiescence, much evidence shows that taking down “German strength” could have very well been on the allies’ agenda:

  1. Germany’s industrial power and the talent of its people
  2. Germany not borrowing money from the central banks of England (BoE) or Federal Reserve

___bpg_screen-shot-09-11-166-at-10-31-pmWhat followed Germany’s 1918 defeat was the 11th of November 1919 humiliating Treaty of Versailles inflicted by Imperialists France and Britain (with the help of the U.S.) The combination of Germany’s WWI defeat and the Versailles dictate had just crushed a superb industrial nation by demanding an additional gold ransom (lost between 1871 and 1914 due to France and Britain’s trade unbalance) of 132 billion (gold) mark

“You see, the real value of a conflict, the true value is in the debt that it creates. You control the debt – you control everything. You find this upsetting, yes? But this is the very essence of the banking industry, to make us all – whether we [are] nations or individuals, slaves to debt.”

—Umberto Calvini, from the motion picture: The International (starring Clive Owen as Louis Sallinger and Naomi Watts as Eleanor Whitman.)

After re-entering the geopolitical chessboard in 1871, Germany’s post WWII-partition, into West-Germany or Western Federal Republic of Germany (FRG), and East Germany or German Democratic Republic (GDR), gave the birth to a bipolar world dominated by the United States of America (USA) and the Union of the Soviet Socialist Republics (USSR | CCCP: Сою́з Сове́тских Социалисти́ческих Респу́блик). After the fall of the Soviet Union in December 1991, we returned to a Unipolar world dominated by the United States of America but increasingly challenged by the BRICS nations led by the Double Helix Russia and China.

How is the U.S. profiling and securing its geopolitical, financial and industrial hegemony? What are the main geopolitical “building sites” the United States of America is trying to control and secure right now? We shall begin addressing some of these topics:

  • Controlling the Balkan via NATO-Kosovo territories (Camp Bondsteel)
  • Ukraine:  a fascist coup d’état led by the U.S. and EU
  • Syrian conflict and U.S. gas and crude oil control
  • Qatar vs. Iran: The Sunni—Shiite gas dilemma
  • Destabilization of the Eurasian Balkan

United States of America: the 21st century manufacturing “Hegemon” viewed from Germany!

A few weeks ago a German friend and I were summarizing USA’s twenty first century contribution to the international community:

  1. USA: World Champion in the manufacturing of sodomy, pornography of the worst type coming out of the world renowned “San Fer(Por)nando Valley in Los Angeles Californi
  2. USA: World Champion in the rate of abortion and the +60 million lives that have been snuffed out since its inception
  3. USA: World Champion in the manufacturing of fiat currency money printed out of nothing and at the speed of several hundred billion USD every month by the Federal Reserve’s private banking criminals as opposed to Russia and China: More than 80% of Wal-Mart’s product range is made in China!
  4. USA: World Champion in the manufacturing of terrorism and its export via Al-Qaeda, ISIS, ISIL, IS or Daesh (Made in the United States of America) nefarious terror-subsidiaries sponsoring violence and turning countries such as Egypt, Libya, Syria, Afghanistan, Iraq, Ukraine, Yemen and soon Germany into failed states.
  5. USA: World Champion in manufacturing genetically modified organisms while destroying our international agricultural heritage and forcing its nefarious seeds of death all around the planet (Monsanto.)
  6. USA: World Champion in manufacturing fiat products with hedge funds derivative portfolio valued at a minimum of 600 trillion USD.
  7. USA: World Champion in destroying families, Christian values, Father, Mother, God, the 10 commandments and morals while supporting sodomy and endangering the safety of our children and grandchildren for generations to come.
  8. USA: World Champion in destroying western economies while importing by theft while paying its bills with fiat money printed out of thin air.
  9. USA: World Champion in drug manufacturing with more than 70% of US-cocaine sourced from Afghanistan where the US-CIA criminals control its export via NATO airbases in Ramstein Germany and Incirlik Turkey
  10. USA: World Champion in Arms Export Industry  (2014: figures in million USD)

How long will the international community accept to deliver goods and services to a country that not only promotes sodomy, destroys the environment, our heritage and our families but also settles its bills with US-Treasuries printed out of thin air? This will have to come to an end soon and it will!

Fifteen Years of Western NATO and US-led “Terror Management” | Post 1989 German Reunification | NATO’s Totalitarian Expansion | Neo-Conservatism

Book_The.Great.Deformation_David.A.StockmanWWII victorious U.S. and Allies shrewdly forced the U.S. Dollar upon the international community with its 1944 Bretton Woods agreements. Every U.S. Dollar the Federal Reserve, a private banking cartel, printed would be redeemable for gold at a standard rate of $35/oz. The Vietnam War, which required much more expenditures from the U.S. than expected, made the Federal Reserve print more U.S. Dollar notes than could be covered by gold. U.S. gold reserves were facing enormous pressure due to balance of payment concerns, the Vietnam War debt and Great Society programs, and the ensuing monetary inflation. A growing number of countries began to redeem their dollar holdings for gold: Consequently, on August the 15th of 1971, U.S. President Richard Nixon announced the de-pegging of the USD from gold. Director David Stockman, in his splendid book, The Great Deformation, cites this date as the beginning of an era of “fiat money.”

Book_Frank.Capell_Henry.Kissenger_Soviet.AgentIn 1973, the Rockefellers came up with a brilliant idea: Since America was such a great military power and Saudi Arabia needed protection for its vast oil empires, the Rockefellers publically used Soviet KGB agent and Jewish Nazi informant Henry (Heinz) Alfred Kissinger (born in Fuerth, Germany in 1923) to exchange America’s military might for Saudi Arabia’s promise to sell oil exclusively in U.S. Dollars. Between 1973 and 1974, the price of oil went from three to twelve U.S. Dollar per barrel globally: A 300% increase! Heinz Kissinger, who developed a relationship with Nelson Rockefeller (Frank Capell, Henry Kissinger: Soviet Agent. Cincinnati, 1992, p. 29), is a (Jewish) Zionist, author of the following quote: “In 10 years, there will be no more Israel.”

Central bankers’ deal of the century:

  1. The Rockefeller man-made “1971 oil crisis” forced countries in Europe to borrow more from Central Banks.
  2. The Saudis and OPEC reaped an incredible wealth but were compelled, by Rockefeller via Henry Kissinger, to source their military gear from the U.S. military industrial complex.
  3. “Rockies & Rothies” cashed in on both sides; Central Banks and gas stations (via Shell, BP, Exon), where consumers pick(ed) up the tab at a present average price of 1,25 €/liter in Germany ($ 5,20/gal.) including 68% energy tax and value-added tax.
  4. Countries had first to convert their local currency into U.S. Dollars thus having to export goods and services in order to get the U.S. dollars they needed to buy oil as opposed to the U.S. who could “print” (via the Federal Reserve cartel) whenever the need occured.

Mackinder and the Heartland Theory

Clipboard_Image 007“Before the American Empire there was the British Empire, and before Zbigniew Brzezinski (Author of ‘The Grand Chessboard’) there was Sir Halford John Mackinder (1861 — 1947). This Oxford academic-turned-policy guru was ostensibly a ‘geographer’, but he also possessed a certain ‘industriousness’ that led to him being Britain’s king-maker n behalf of the Eastern European states carved out of Europe’s fallen empires after WW1. In 1904, Mackinder submitted an article to the Royal Geographical Society titled ‘The Geographical Pivot of History’, in which he formulated the ‘Heartland Theory’, which he himself later boiled down to this: ‘Who rules East Europe commands the Heartland; who rules the Heartland commands the World-Island; who rules the World-Island controls the world.’ —Mackinder, Democratic Ideals and Reality, p. 194.” According to Zbigniew Brzezinski (inspired by Mackinder), those who control Eurasia control Africa, the Middle East and global oil and gas flows (the economic artery system of the world).

Clipboard_Image 006On November the 9th of 1989, when the menacing Berlin wall, originally constructed in 1961 (155km/96,3ml), came tumbling down, there was a Ludwig van Beethoven “Ode to Joy” type of spirit in Berlin; an atmosphere of reconciliation between former German Democratic Republic (GDR) citizens and their Western counterparts. It was some sort of a Jubilee Celebration whereby Eastern Germans were heading back to their homeland. Meanwhile, the bankrupt Soviet Union (USSR) was collapsing into chaos and its Warsaw Pact, counteracting NATO’s western alliance, was falling apart. The USSR’s nuclear threat was dissolving and, within a few months, Western Europe was lively debating the obsolescence of NATO and its possible dismantle. Former Soviet Leader Mikhail Sergeyevich Gorbachev, warned on November 8 of 1989 that a new Cold War was taking shape: “now is not the time for recriminations. Let us work hard to restore confidence.”

clipboard_10Following the fall of the Berlin Wall, parts of the U.S. military establishment got worried since their power base, made of post WWII Cold War and national security, were eroding! The Soviet enemy threat was disappearing faster than snow melting in the sun. The lucrative “Cold War” military business was threatened to the core; so how would the U.S. justify military spending without any obvious Soviet menace? One might think that it should have been time for the U.S.-led NATO troops to pack their aging and preposterous bags and for the Yanks to go home: But no, it did not happen that way!

clipboard_11Despite U.S. and NATO’s promises towards the former Soviet Union never to expand after German Reunification, the Pentagon and its NATO goons and cover-up agents went right along with the resurgence of a nefarious form of U.S. expansion: imperialism via neocolonialism. Thanks to the control of the Western and U.S. Press this agenda was sold to the masses under the cover up of “democracy, “liberation” and “free markets” mostly realized via NGOs, false flag operations and color revolutions. The fascist Washington Neo Cons swapped the Cold War policy of Mutual Assured Destruction (MAD) with the doctrine of Nuclear Primacy: First Strike.

__clipboard_image_16“What has happened in Crimea is a response to the format that made Ukrainian democracy collapse. And there is only one reason for this: the anti-Russian policy of the U.S. and some European countries. They seek to encircle Russia in order to weaken and eventually destroy it… There is a certain transnational elite that has been cherishing this dream for 300 years.”Venezuelan President Nicolas Maduro, 19 March 2014

Clipboard_Image 003Geopolitical Neo Con Agenda goes back as far as the establishment of the Federal Reserve in 1913 in Jekyll Island followed by Bretton Woods, the 1973 Petro-dollar and the 2001 9/11 oligarch coup d’état on the American People , who’s democracy has been hijacked by an international group of financial fascist psychopaths. Many of us might perceive oligarchy in connection with Russia but the United States of America is an oligarchy not a democracy as a recent study by Princeton University Prof Martin Gilens and Northwestern University Prof Benjamin concludes.

Trillionnaires Rockefeller, Rothschild, Warburg, Busch and their billionaire minions Bill Gates, George Soros and Warren Buffett, to name just a few, are your 21st century kleptocrat class of criminal financiers and privateers who, like a tapeworm parasite, steal and loot wherever and whenever they can! Consider them as your 21st century digital gangsters, thugs and goons with their own set of oligarchic dictate. Those plutocrat neo-conservative fascists conquer the world with weapons of fiat money destruction. They steal and racketeer via renowned institutions such as the IMF, ECB, Federal Reserve, BoE and BoJ. They trade paper-money for countries’ hard core assets while using media as a weapon of mass deception.

In the next installment we shall look at Neo Conservatism and one of its main crusading tools: Color Revolutions via NGOs and how it was used to overthrow Slobodan Milošević in the NATO Kosovo/Serbian war.

Britain & U.S. Pre-WWI “Terror Management” | Winston Churchill | The Reichsbank, The Federal Reserve & The Lusitania Trap (Part Two)

After having won the 1871 war against France, Germany transformed its 300 entities, duchies and city states into a more unified country. In 1876. Germany also started its own central bank, the Reichsbank issuing a Goldmark independently from the Rothschild and Rockefeller central banks criminals of London and Paris. This rapidly allowed Germany to grow enough financial and industrial wealth to become a major European geopolitical and geo-financial power thus threat to both France and Britain.

By 1900, Germany had become the largest steel producer in Europe (1913 steel production: Germany: 19,3 million tons. Britain: 10.4 million tons) with more railway tracks than Britain or France. In 1903, the Naval race between Britain and Germany led the British Navy to build the Lusitania: Coined the “Greyhound of the Seas”, the Lusitania was to become the fastest Atlantic Crossing and to compete with the German Hapag, which dated back to 1847, and Norddeutscher Lloyd (NDL) or North German Lloyd (NGL) formed in 1856.

The Lusitania made her first trip from Liverpool to New York in September 1907. Right before WWI the Lusitania had been transformed for war. Ammunition magazines and concealed gun mounts were fitted on her teak deck standing by for the addition of guns whenever it would be needed.

___1920px-The_Lusitania_at_end_of_record_voyage_1907_LC-USZ62-64956_F

On May 1, 1915, the ship departed New York City bound for Liverpool. Unknown to her passengers but probably no secret to the Germans, almost all her hidden cargo consisted of munitions and contraband destined for the British war effort. As the fastest ship afloat, the luxurious liner felt secure in the belief she could easily outdistance any submarine. Nonetheless, the menace of submarine attack reduced her passenger list to only half her capacity.

___Geopolitics_P_Lusitania_F

On May 7th, 1915, the Lusitania approached within 12 miles of the southern Irish coast. Winston Churchill, the Lord of the Admiralty, knew that German U-boats were operating in the area after three ships had been sunk in the previous 2 days. Not only did Churchill not come to the assistance of the Lusitania but he ordered her planned escort, the destroyer Juno, to return to Queenstown harbor. Earlier, the Lusitania had been ordered to reduce speed by shutting down one of her four boilers (ostensibly to save coal). She was a sitting duck and the entire Admiralty [Winston Churchill] knew it.

___lusitania-u-boat_FAt 2:10 in the afternoon a torpedo fired by the German submarine U 20 slammed into her side. A mysterious second explosion ripped the liner apart. One thousand one hundred nineteen of the 1,924 aboard died. The dead included 114 Americans which enraged the American public opinion. The political fallout was immediate. President Wilson protested strongly to the Germans. Secretary of State William Jennings Bryan, a pacifist, resigned. However, the seeds of American animosity towards Germany were sown.” Within two years after Woodrow Wilson waited for his second term reelection before sending America to war in April 2017.

Central banking: the tri-polar pre-WWI financial tension: The Bank of England, the Reichbank and the Federal Reserve.

Politic_P_Bank_Children.Waking.Up.Homless_1

The propagandist idea behind the Federal Reserve was that the U.S. needed a “powerful banking” entity such as the Bank of England (BoE) as American financiers thought that New York needed to develop its own commercial trading system that could handle bills of exchange in the same way as the London market. The Federal Reserve was founded in 1913 in Jekyll Island and “legalized” by U.S. President Woodrow Wilson’s government not too long after.

Clipboard_Image 002The “Fed” is a private banking institution that has become a U.S and international financial tapeworm parasite as describe by Catherine Austin Fitts. It destroys markets, capital, middle class, societies and families thus, the very foundation of a healthy and thriving society! Since Post WWII Bretton Woods agreements, its parasite tentacles have expended globally and connected itself to the Bank of England, the Bank of Japan and the European Central Bank with even more looting organizations such as the IMF (International Monetary Fund). the World Bank and the BIS (Bank of International Settlements), all having one single basic currency packaged into four different “names”: USD, GBP, EUR & ‎¥EN. The CHF (Swiss Franc) should be added to the list since the BIS in Basel is very much part of this international banking cartel. It is very relevant to refer again to G. Edward Griffin’s monumental work on the Federal Reserve: “The Creature from Jekyll Island: A Second Look at the Federal Reserve.”

Paul Moritz Warburg (1868 – 1932) was one of the original founders of this “US financial private banking cartel” who drew up the institutional design of the Federal Reserve System. His older brother Max Moritz Warburg (1867 – 1946), a close adviser of Kaiser Wilhelm II. was the German Jewish banker who assisted Germany into financing its WWI expenses. Max Moritz Warburg and his younger brother Paul Moritz were both in favor of an American German financial version of the French-British “Entente Cordiale” in order to erode the British financial and industrial monopoly.

The creation of the German Reichsbank established in 1876. was seen by Britain as a financial threat likely to compete with the Bank of England. From 1873 to 1914 the German Empire introduced the German Goldmark.  At the beginning of WWI the Goldmark was turned into a “Papermark” to become one of the most disastrous financial crisis in German history! The Allies were shrewd enough to demand “Goldmark” payments for WWI compensation and not the fiat “Papermark” legal tender. The German Goldmark became a threat to the London and Washington central bankers: An additional reason why Germany had “to be destroyed.” It would be  worthwhile reading Peter Williamson Campbell‘s work: Britain Was Responsible For WWI, WWII & The Holocaust: Aided And Abetted By The USA And The Vatican to shed more light on the topic of western banking criminality.

The carving out of Germany following WWI by the allies was obvious!  France and Britain wanted to do away with a possible ”German threat” and blend Germany into a European context that should never allow the country, financially and economically, to ever stand up again. Much more was to follow after WWII and the 1992 Treaty of Maastricht coined by French Président François Mitterrand as: “A Versailles Without The War.

Fifteen Years of Western NATO and U.S.-led “Terror Management” | Germany 1871 – 1914 | German Gold Mark | German Industrial Revolution (Part Nine)

”Those who cannot remember the past are condemned to repeat it,” Jorge Agustín Nicolás Ruiz de (George) Santayana, Spanish-born philosopher  (1863 — 1952)

“War is the continuation of politics by other means.” Carl von Clausewitz, Prussian General (1780 — 1831)

Relying on Western Mainstream media is often connected to propaganda and geopolitical lies such as:

  • 9/11 was an Al Qaeda “terror attack” on America (which in some way it was because Al Qaeda is a U.S. CIA asset in the first place!)
  • Russia is alone to be blamed for the Ukrainian conflict
  • Crimea “was invaded” by Vladimir Putin
  • Libya was freed from Muammar al-Gaddafi for “democratic” reasons
  • Egypt and its Arab Spring was the outburst of a “democratic” revolution

Many things are not what they appear to be and many historical events, we were taught at schools/universities or read about, rarely recount the truth of what happened!  Wars are (often) initiated by financial institutions and their bankster cabal!

Could this have been the case when, on June the 28th of 1914, Archduke Franz Ferdinand of Austria, heir presumptive to the Austro-Hungarian throne, and his wife, Sophie, Duchess of Hohenberg, were shot dead in Sarajevo (Serbia)? Shortly after their assassination, Austria-Hungary, Belgium, Britain, Bulgaria, France, Germany, Italy, Serbia, Russia, Turkey and the U.S. got involved in a cataclysmic chain of events that would make up for one of the bloodiest wars in European history.

How could a European conflict (and World War One) end up with Article 231 of the Treaty of Versailles, often known as the War Guilt Clause, and Germany bearing alone the full moral responsibility for this (European) catastrophe?

“The Allied and Associated Governments affirm and Germany accepts the responsibility of Germany and her allies for causing all the loss and damage to which the Allied and Associated Governments and their nationals have been subjected as a consequence of the war imposed upon them by the aggression of Germany and her allies.” (Treaty of Versailles, Article 231)

Books_Christopher.Clark_The.SleepwalkersAustralian historian and scholar Christopher Clark, author of “The Sleepwalkers: How Europe Went to War in 1914, makes an insightful statement: “Those who think that my book is about an acquittal of Germany’s great responsibility for the conflict are on the wrong path. This book does not set Germany free from its shared responsibility of the outbreak of this war whatsoever. It is an attempt at considering and understanding the origin of this war as a European problem. It is not striving to ‘de-Germanize’ the war but to ‘Europeanize’ it.”

“Wer meint in meinem Buch einen Freispruch für die deutsche Staatsführung damals zu erlesen ist auf dem falschen Weg. . . . Das Buch spricht die deutschen überhaupt nicht von einer starken und großen Mitverantwortung an den Ausbruch dieses Krieges frei, sondern versucht die Entstehung dieses Krieges als europäisches Problem zu verstehen und zu betrachten. Es ist ein Versuch die Geschichte dieses Krieges nicht zu ‘entdeutschen’ sondern zu europäisieren.Christopher Clark

Germany never initiated nor started this war in the first place: Austria-Hungary did! So, why were the Allies (France in particular) so keen at accusing and humiliating Germany when France, Britain, Russia, Serbia, Austria-Hungary and the U.S. should have also been held accountable? Why Germany?

DBP_1988_1378_Made_in_GermanyTo answer this question, we need to review the geopolitical circumstances that transformed Prussia from a fractured kingdom (post Napoleonic wars) to a united German nation. How was Germany able to accumulate so much wealth from 1850 to 1914? Germany’s industrial strength was nothing short of an “Industrial Miracle.” Despite the fact that this Industrial Revolution started 100 years later than in Britain, the Netherlands and Flemish (north) Belgium, by 1900, Germany had become Europe’s number one economy. How did it happen?Clipboard_Image 008_F

The quintessential reason for Germany’s industrial revival (1871-1900) was the establishment of a German Currency (Mark) backed by Gold! Germany’s national wealth Clipboard_Image 014was rapidly created because their gold backed currency was not borrowed from central banks. This is geopolitically and geofinancially crucial because both (private) Bank of England (BoE) and newly created (private) U.S. Federal Reserve (1913 in Jekyll Island) did not have “monetary control” over Germany. As a nation, Germany was free to issue interest free money. Just like Adolf Hitler did with Germany’s development of what would become the world’s finest Autobahn (highway) network, Germany’s “interest free” money speeded up the expansion of its industrial wealth.

Germany’s late nineteen century industrialization was also speeded up thanks to:

  • The 1832 creation of a Zollverein (customs union) that promoted free trade between all German States
  • The 1870 German defeat over France and Otto von Bismarck‘s 1871 creation of a united Germany (from its initial 25 German-speaking states, city-states and duchies) that  stimulated its industrialization even further
  • The new politically united Germany could now exploit the rich iron-fields of Lorraine taken from France
  • The development of a national railway network especially after 1830. By 1850 Germany had constructed half as much as Britain and twice as much as France
  • The extraction of coal from the Silesian, Rhineland and Ruhr fields
  • Germany becoming Europe’s leading steel-producing nation in the late 19th century
  • The emergence of larger companies such as Alfred Krupp (railway, locomotives and armament production) and Werner Siemens

___Geopolitics_Afraid.of.GermanyIncidentally, the 23rd of August 1887 marked the birth of Made in Germany: A trademark law from the “Merchandise Marks Act” imposed by Britain on all German imported goods, which had to bear the Made in Germanylabel. Britain’s obvious intention was to downgrade German products as of “lesser quality” thus “lesser price,” which, as we know, turned out in Germany’s favo(u)r!

We are beginning to see how German currency (gold Mark) and German economy lead us again to the central banksters! London, New York and Paris did not like Germany issuing free money and feared (France especially) the threat that such an economic powerhouse could cause!  Winston Churchill, appointed First Lord of the Admiralty before the start of World War I, would eventually make this revealing tatement:

Clipboard_Image 011_F“You must understand that this war is not against Hitler or National Socialism but against the economic strength of the German people, which must be smashed once and for all, regardless whether it is in the hands of Hitler or a Jesuit priest“. —Winston Churchill

In part 10 of this series, we shall see how French Premier Minister Georges Clémenceau was instrumental into forging the disastrous Treaty of Versailles that would eventually “humiliate” and “flatten” Germany not only economically but also as a nation.
