COMMENT: As the media fixate on the “disclosures” of career spook Baby Face Snowden (predictably failing to note how the entire affair tracks back to the far right/Cato Institute/Koch Brothers milieu), a huge and potentially devastating (for the U.S.) development is being eclipsed.
Obama and British Prime Minister David Cameron are lining up behind an enormous EU/US trade deal, which would bring the U.S. and the EU into a single market–the largest in the world.
As a general consideration, we don’t approve of these kinds of agreements. NAFTA and its litter-mates generally benefit corporate interests at the expense of the citizens whose prosperity they are supposed to elevate.
We are very, very leery of this whopper.
No doubt we will be deluged by rhetoric assuring us that the agreement will bring jobs, jobs, jobs and lots of good vibes all around.
Indeed it may do just that–for Germany, in all likelihood.
In this regard, we bring up something we have noted in many posts and broadcasts–the blueprint for German world wide domination crafted by Friedrich List in the 19th century and realized by the Third Reich in its above-ground and underground manifestations.
The Third Reich’s economic template was set forth by Dorothy Thompson in a 1940 article, reviewed (from a T.H. H. Tetens text) below.
Suffice it to say that economic forces and pressure are seen as the means for subjugating the United States, and that this will be accomplished by offering competitive advantages to commercial interests with which Corporate Germany has already networked.
In more programs and posts than we could link or note here, we have documented that the EMU and EU are the realization of the Listian blueprint. The brutal realities being imposed on the troubled nations of that continent are decimating those societies and driving the citizens in the direction of fascism.
We are confident that many cheerful statements will be issued reassuring the wary that this will all be fine and well–it’s just a single market, after all.
This is precisely how Britain was maneuvered into accepting market continuity with Germany and the EU. This hasn’t worked well for Britain, which did manage to avoid getting roped into the Euro.
Once Britain was “reeled in,” it developed that the rules were being made on the continent and were established to the detriment of the U.K.
The full chronicle of how this was done is beyond the scope of this post and requires lengthy academic consideration.
We strongly recommend the following website for serious perusal and dissemination. This is how it was done to the U.K.
Will it be done to the U.S. in a similar fashion?
In this context, we should never lose sight of the decisive power wielded by the immensely secretive, powerful Bormann capital network, which has major capital participation in major American corporations, in addition to dominating Corporate Germany. (Note, in this context, that any American corporation that would decline to cooperate with this “single market” could have its stock value collapsed by a sell-off.)
Organized labor, in particular, should be alerted to the strong probability that this single market will not work to the advantage of the United States.
EXCERPT: UK Prime Minister David Cameron has announced plans for what could be “the biggest bilateral trade deal in history” between the EU and the US.
He announced the start of formal negotiations on a trade deal worth hundreds of billions of pounds, aimed at boosting exports and driving growth.
Mr Cameron said a successful agreement would have a greater impact than all other world trade deals put together.
The talks were announced ahead of the G8 summit in Northern Ireland.
US President Barack Obama said the first round of negotiations would take place in Washington in July. They aim to conclude by the end of 2014.
The French have already expressed misgivings about parts of the trade deal. They are worried that if they cannot protect their film industry from Hollywood’s dominance, their unique artistic culture will be undermined.
After intense talks with other EU countries last week, it seems the French have persuaded the negotiators to honour what they call a cultural exclusion.
That leaves the way open for other sectors to say they are also exceptional and should not be included in the trade deal.
The French claim the Americans want to exclude financial services from the free trade negotiations. The Americans have not acknowledged that publicly but it is a reminder that behind closed doors the discussions might be very difficult.
Mr Obama said he was confident of reaching an agreement.
“There are going to be sensitivities on both sides… but if we can look beyond the narrow concerns to stay focused on the big picture… I’m hopeful we can achieve [a deal].” . . . .
. . . . The EU has said the deal will focus on bringing down remaining tariffs and other barriers to trade, and standardize technical regulations and certifications. . . .
. . . . Currently the US and EU impose relatively low tariffs on goods traded between them, but analysts say other barriers are often in place to prevent European companies competing in the US and vice versa.
One example is found in the car industry, where the EU and the US employ equally strict – but differing – safety standards, meaning that European car makers must meet both before they can sell cars in the US market, putting them at a disadvantage.
Agriculture is also expected to be a significant bone of contention.
The European farming industry is already heavily subsidized through the Common Agricultural Policy, and the European agriculture minister has already expressed reservations about the impact a free-trade deal might have. . . .
. . . . The Germans have a clear plan of what they intend to do in case of victory. I believe that I know the essential details of that plan. I have heard it from a sufficient number of important Germans to credit its authenticity . . . Germany’s plan is to make a customs union of Europe, with complete financial and economic control centered in Berlin. This will create at once the largest free trade area and the largest planned economy in the world. In Western Europe alone . . . there will be an economic unity of 400 million persons . . . To these will be added the resources of the British, French, Dutch and Belgian empires. These will be pooled in the name of Europa Germanica . . .
“The Germans count upon political power following economic power, and not vice versa. Territorial changes do not concern them, because there will be no ‘France’ or ‘England,’ except as language groups. Little immediate concern is felt regarding political organizations . . . . No nation will have the control of its own financial or economic system or of its customs. The Nazification of all countries will be accomplished by economic pressure. In all countries, contacts have been established long ago with sympathetic businessmen and industrialists . . . . As far as the United States is concerned, the planners of the World Germanica laugh off the idea of any armed invasion. They say that it will be completely unnecessary to take military action against the United States to force it to play ball with this system. . . . Here, as in every other country, they have established relations with numerous industries and commercial organizations, to whom they will offer advantages in co-operation with Germany. . . .
