FTR #314 Update on European Union and the European Monetary Union

MP3 One Seg­ment
NB: This RealAu­dio stream con­tains both FTRs 314 and 315 in sequence. Each is a 30 minute seg­ment.

High­light­ing the EU and EMU in the con­text of an impe­r­i­al pan-Ger­man­ism, this pro­gram presents some impor­tant infor­ma­tion sup­ple­ment­ing past broad­casts on the sub­ject.

1. Mys­te­ri­ous Cana­di­an-Ger­man busi­ness­man Bern­hard Schreiber is the sub­ject of a new book, detail­ing his role in the sale of Air­bus jets to Air Cana­da. (“New Book Looks Deep Into ‘Air­bus’ Affair;” 4/9/2001.)

2. An extreme right-winger, who has been com­pared to P‑2 Lodge Grand Mas­ter Licio Gel­li, Schreiber main­tains that his rev­e­la­tions could threat­en the Cana­di­an polit­i­cal estab­lish­ment. (Idem.)

3. Cir­cum­stances sug­gest that Schreiber may very well be asso­ci­at­ed with the Bor­mann orga­ni­za­tion. The eco­nom­ic and polit­i­cal com­po­nent of a Third Reich gone under­ground, the Bor­mann orga­ni­za­tion con­trols cor­po­rate Ger­many and much of the rest of the world. (It was cre­at­ed and run by Mar­tin Bor­mann, the orga­ni­za­tion­al genius who was the “the pow­er behind the throne” in Nazi Ger­many.)

4. Schreiber is a pri­ma­ry play­er in the CDU fund­ing scan­dal that already threat­ens major polit­i­cal inter­ests in both Ger­many and France.

5. The CDU fund­ing scan­dal, in turn, has seri­ous impli­ca­tions for the Ger­man-dom­i­nat­ed EU.

6. Next, the pro­gram details a Ger­man-bro­kered pro­pos­al to estab­lish a fed­er­al gov­ern­men­tal struc­ture for the EU, some­thing viewed with con­sid­er­able alarm in France and the Unit­ed King­dom. (“Alarm at Super­state Plan” by John Hoop­er and Patrick Win­tour; The Guardian; 4/30/2001.)

7. The broad­cast dis­cuss­es acqui­es­cence on the part of a num­ber of EU coun­tries con­cern­ing key points of EU gov­er­nance. Spain was among the coun­tries elect­ing to con­form to the Ger­man polit­i­cal will on sig­nif­i­cant points. (“Spain Backs Down to Ger­many over Aid” by Leslie Craw­ford and Haig Simon­ian; Finan­cial Times: 5/30/2001; p.2.)

8. France acced­ed to key Ger­man demands as well. (“Paris and Berlin Agree on New EU Mem­bers” by Robert Gra­ham and Haig Simon­ian; Finan­cial Times: 6/13/2001; p.2)

9. Ulti­mate­ly, the EU vot­ed in con­junc­tion with the essence of Ger­man demands, although some Ger­man pro­pos­als were resist­ed. (“Euro­pean Union in Pledge on Enlarge­ment” by Peter Nor­man; Finan­cial Times: 6/18/2001; p.1.)

10. In a move many have seen as indi­cat­ing a return to its impe­r­i­al past, Ger­many has been mov­ing toward reclaim­ing the for­mer East Pruss­ian city of Kalin­ingrad (now, part of Rus­sia.) (“Ger­many in Secret Talks with Rus­sia to Take Back Konigs­berg;” Dai­ly Tele­graph; 1/21/2001.)
