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: peachy.co.uk

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: www.revisionist.net

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:

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 United States of America’s Democratic Values: An Empire’s Charade of Duplicity, Criminality and Lawlessness

American terrorist hooliganism is constantly mascaraed as Washington’s “spread of democracy” and the “defending of Western Values” thanks to the main stream media apparatchik well in control of the neocon-mana fed daily to a gullible nations of jaded westerners more interested in the Game of Throne or the latest Kim Kardashian gossip than the nefarious deeds their governments are up to. This alleged Western “spread of democracy” leitmotiv could not be further from the truth.

When revisiting the establishment of the Den Hague International Criminal Court of Justice in the Netherlands, honorable mentions (and kudos) ought to go to the nations that voted in favor of the establishment of this international rule of law. The International Criminal Court of Justice’s aim was and remains the putting away of international criminality whereby illustrious names such as Rockefeller, Rothschild, J. P. Morgan, Goldman Sachs, the Federal Reserve, the International Monetary Fund (IMF), the Bank of England (BoE) established in 1694, The European Central Bank, the Bank of International Settlements (BIS) and the Khazarian mafia should have been put away a very long time ago, would justice reign in the land.

As prophet Isaiah, under God’s inspiration, once wrote: “The way of peace they know not; and there is no judgment in their goings: they have made them crooked paths: whosoever goeth therein shall not know peace.” —Isaiah 59.8 (KJV – King James Version of the Bible)

Needless to say, the international take down of recent war criminals such as Dick Cheney, both Bush and Clinton dynasties, also known as international drug lords for those better informed, Nicolas Sarkozy (former French President), Anthony Charles Lynton Blair (Former British Prime Minister) and of course Barack Obama, should have been put away a long time ago. Enumerating the name of the conflicts those nefarious leaders are responsible for would take too much space and is not the object of this post; nonetheless something Geopolitical News might revisit in future installments.    

If you think Geopolitical News is exaggerating when putting names like Obama or the Bush dynasty on this war criminals’ list: may we, please, invite you to review both Noam Chomsky’s quote about the corruption of all Post World War II U.S. presidencies:

Geopolitics_F_USA_Noam.Chomsky_About.Criminality.of.US.Presidents

or Ramsey Clark’s statement on U.S. Foreign Policy:

In 1998, the International Criminal Court was founded by the United Nations. The International Criminal Court (ICC or ICCt) is an intergovernmental organization and international tribunal that sits in The Hague in the Netherlands. The ICC has the jurisdiction to prosecute individuals for the international crimes of genocide, crimes against humanity, and war crimes. One would think the ICC would be an institution the Western World, including Britain and the United States of America in particular, would support and promote right?

170 nations were present in Rom on the 17 of July 1998 for the establishment of the International Criminal Court; great undertaking right? Well, among the 170 nations represented, 120 voted for the ICC’s establishment/foundation; 20 abstained and seven nations voted against it:
