Germany’s position in America’s New World Order

Germany has become an economic satellite of America’s New Cold War with Russia, China and the rest of Eurasia. Germany and other NATO countries have been told to impose trade and investment sanctions upon themselves that will outlast today’s proxy war in Ukraine. U.S. President Biden and his State Department spokesmen have explained that Ukraine is just the opening arena in a much broader dynamic that is splitting the world into two opposing sets of economic alliances. This global fracture promises to be a ten- or twenty-year struggle to determine whether the world economy will be a unipolar U.S.-centered dollarized economy, or a multipolar, multi-currency world centered on the Eurasian heartland with mixed public/private economies.

President Biden has characterized this split as being between democracies and autocracies. The terminology is typical Orwellian double-speak. By “democracies” he means the U.S. and allied Western financial oligarchies. Their aim is to shift economic planning out of the hands of elected governments to Wall Street and other financial centers under U.S. control. U.S. diplomats use the International Monetary Fund and World Bank to demand privatization of the world’s infrastructure and dependency on U.S. technology, oil and food exports.

By “autocracy,” Biden means countries resisting this financialization and privatization takeover. In practice, U.S. rhetoric accuses China of being autocratic in regulating its economy to promote its own economic growth and living standards, above all by keeping finance and banking as public utilities to promote the tangible production-and-consumption economy. What basically is at issue is whether economies will be planned by banking centers to create financial wealth – by privatizing basic infrastructure, public utilities and social services such as health care into monopolies – or by raising living standards and prosperity by keeping banking and money creation, public health, education, transportation and communications in public hands.

The country suffering the most “collateral damage” in this global fracture is Germany. As Europe’s most advanced industrial economy, German steel, chemicals, machinery, automotives and other consumer goods are the most highly dependent on imports of Russian gas, oil and metals from aluminum to titanium and palladium. Yet despite two Nord Stream pipelines built to provide Germany with low-priced energy, Germany has been told to cut itself off from Russian gas and de-industrialize. This means the end of its economic preeminence. The key to GDP growth in Germany, as in other countries, is energy consumption per worker.

These anti-Russian sanctions make today’s New Cold War inherently anti-German. U.S. Secretary of State Anthony Blinken has said that Germany should replace low-priced Russian pipeline gas with high-priced U.S. LNG gas. To import this gas, Germany will have to spend over $5 billion quickly to build port capacity to handle LNG tankers. The effect will be to make German industry uncompetitive. Bankruptcies will spread, employment will decline, and Germany’s pro-NATO leaders will impose a chronic depression and falling living standards.

Most political theory assumes that nations will act in their own self-interest. Otherwise they are satellite countries, not in control of their own fate. Germany is subordinating its industry and living standards to the dictates of U.S. diplomacy and the self-interest of America’s oil and gas sector. It is doing this voluntarily – not because of military force but out of an ideological belief that the world economy should be run by U.S. Cold War planners.

Sometimes it is easier to understand today’s dynamics by stepping away from one’s own immediate situation to look at historical examples of the kind of political diplomacy that one sees splitting today’s world. The closest parallel that I can find is medieval Europe’s fight by the Roman papacy against German kings – the Holy Roman Emperors – in the 13th century. That conflict split Europe along lines much like those of today. A series of popes excommunicated Frederick II and other German kings and mobilized allies to fight against Germany and its control of southern Italy and Sicily.

Western antagonism against the East was incited by the Crusades (1095-1291), just as today’s Cold War is a crusade against economies threatening U.S. dominance of the world. The medieval war against Germany was over who should control Christian Europe: the papacy, with the popes becoming worldly emperors, or secular rulers of individual kingdoms by claiming the power to morally legitimize and accept them.

Medieval Europe’s analogue to America’s New Cold War against China and Russia was the Great Schism in 1054. Demanding unipolar control over Christendom, Leo IX excommunicated the Orthodox Church centered in Constantinople and the entire Christian population that belonged to it. A single bishopric, Rome, cut itself off from the entire Christian world of the time, including the ancient Patriarchates of Alexandria, Antioch, Constantinople and Jerusalem.

This break-away created a political problem for Roman diplomacy: How to hold all the Western European kingdoms under its control and claim the right for financial subsidy from them. That aim required subordinating secular kings to papal religious authority. In 1074, Gregory VII, Hildebrand, announced 27 Papal Dictates outlining the administrative strategy for Rome to lock in its power over Europe.

These papal demands are strikingly parallel to today’s U.S. diplomacy. In both cases military and worldly interests require a sublimation in the form of an ideological crusading spirit to cement the sense of solidarity that any system of imperial domination requires. The logic is timeless and universal.

ORDER IT NOW

The Papal Dictates were radical in two major ways. First of all, they elevated the bishop of Rome above all other bishoprics, creating the modern papacy. Clause 3 ruled that the pope alone had the power of investiture to appoint bishops or to depose or reinstate them. Reinforcing this, Clause 25 gave the right of appointing (or deposing) bishops to the pope, not to local rulers. And Clause 12 gave the pope the right to depose emperors, following Clause 9, obliging “all princes to kiss the feet of the Pope alone” in order to be deemed legitimate rulers.

Likewise today, U.S. diplomats claim the right to name who should be recognized as a nation’s head of state. In 1953 they overthrew Iran’s elected leader and replaced him with the Shah’s military dictatorship. That principle gives U.S. diplomats the right to sponsor “color revolutions” for regime-change, such as their sponsorship of Latin American military dictatorships creating client oligarchies to serve U.S. corporate and financial interests. The 2014 coup in Ukraine is just the latest exercise of this U.S. right to appoint and depose leaders.

More recently, U.S. diplomats have appointed Juan Guaidó as Venezuela’s head of state instead of its elected president, and turned over that country’s gold reserves to him. President Biden has insisted that Russia must remove Putin and put a more pro-U.S. leader in his place. This “right” to select heads of state has been a constant in U.S. policy spanning its long history of political meddling in European political affairs since World War II.

The second radical feature of the Papal Dictates was their exclusion of all ideology and policy that diverged from papal authority. Clause 2 stated that only the Pope could be called “Universal.” Any disagreement was, by definition, heretical. Clause 17 stated that no chapter or book could be considered canonical without papal authority.

A similar demand as is being made by today’s U.S.-sponsored ideology of financialized and privatized “free markets,” meaning deregulation of government power to shape economies in interests other than those of U.S.-centered financial and corporate elites.

The demand for universality in today’s New Cold War is cloaked in the language of “democracy.” But the definition of democracy in today’s New Cold War is simply “pro-U.S.,” and specifically neoliberal privatization as the U.S.-sponsored new economic religion. This ethic is deemed to be “science,” as in the quasi-Nobel Memorial Prize in the Economic Sciences. That is the modern euphemism for neoliberal Chicago-School junk economics, IMF austerity programs and tax favoritism for the wealthy.

The Papal Dictates spelt out a strategy for locking in unipolar control over secular realms. They asserted papal precedence over worldly kings, above all over Germany’s Holy Roman Emperors. Clause 26 gave popes authority to excommunicate whomever was “not at peace with the Roman Church.” That principle implied the concluding Claus 27, enabling the pope to “absolve subjects from their fealty to wicked men.” This encouraged the medieval version of “color revolutions” to bring about regime change.

What united countries in this solidarity was an antagonism to societies not subject to centralized papal control – the Moslem Infidels who held Jerusalem, and also the French Cathars and anyone else deemed to be a heretic. Above all there was hostility toward regions strong enough to resist papal demands for financial tribute.

Today’s counterpart to such ideological power to excommunicate heretics resisting demands for obedience and tribute would be the World Trade Organization, World Bank and IMF dictating economic practices and setting “conditionalities” for all member governments to follow, on pain of U.S. sanctions – the modern version of excommunication of countries not accepting U.S. suzerainty. Clause 19 of the Dictates ruled that the pope could be judged by no one – just as today, the United States refuses to subject its actions to rulings by the World Court. Likewise today, U.S. dictates via NATO and other arms (such as the IMF and World Bank) are expected to be followed by U.S. satellites without question. As Margaret Thatcher said of her neoliberal privatization that destroyed Britain’s public sector, There Is No Alternative (TINA).

My point is to emphasize the analogy with today’s U.S. sanctions against all countries not following its own diplomatic demands. Trade sanctions are a form of excommunication. They reverse the 1648 Treaty of Westphalia’s principle that made each country and its rulers independent from foreign meddling. President Biden characterizes U.S. interference as ensuring his new antithesis between “democracy” and “autocracy.” By democracy he means a client oligarchy under U.S. control, creating financial wealth by reducing living standards for labor, as opposed to mixed public/private economies aiming at promoting living standards and social solidarity.

As I have mentioned, by excommunicating the Orthodox Church centered in Constantinople and its Christian population, the Great Schism created the fateful religious dividing line that has split “the West” from the East for the past millennium. That split was so important that Vladimir Putin cited it as part of his September 30, 2022 speech describing today’s break away from the U.S. and NATO centered Western economies.

The 12th and 13th centuries saw Norman conquerors of England, France and other countries, along with German kings, protest repeatedly, be excommunicated repeatedly, yet ultimately succumb to papal demands. It took until the 16th century for Martin Luther, Zwingli and Henry VIII finally to create a Protestant alternative to Rome, making Western Christianity multi-polar.

Why did it take so long? The answer is that the Crusades provided an organizing ideological gravity. That was the medieval analogy to today’s New Cold War between East and West. The Crusades created a spiritual focus of “moral reform” by mobilizing hatred against “the other” – the Moslem East, and increasingly Jews and European Christian dissenters from Roman control. That was the medieval analogy to today’s neoliberal “free market” doctrines of America’s financial oligarchy and its hostility to China, Russia and other nations not following that ideology. In today’s New Cold War, the West’s neoliberal ideology is mobilizing fear and hatred of “the other,” demonizing nations that follow an independent path as “autocratic regimes.” Outright racism is fostered toward entire peoples, as evident in the Russophobia and Cancel Culture currently sweeping the West.

Just as Western Christianity’s multi-polar transition required the 16th century’s Protestant alternative, the Eurasian heartland’s break from the bank-centered NATO West must be consolidated by an alternative ideology regarding how to organize mixed public/private economies and their financial infrastructure.

ORDER IT NOW

Medieval churches in the West were drained of their alms and endowments to contribute Peter’s Pence and other subsidy to the papacy for the wars it was fighting against rulers who resisted papal demands. England played the role of major victim that Germany plays today. Enormous English taxes were levied ostensibly to finance the Crusades were diverted to fight Frederick II, Conrad and Manfred in Sicily. That diversion was financed by papal bankers from northern Italy (Lombards and Cahorsins), and became royal debts passed down throughout the economy. England’s barons waged a civil war against Henry II in the 1260s, ending his complicity in sacrificing the economy to papal demands.

What ended the papacy’s power over other countries was the ending of its war against the East. When the Crusaders lost Acre, the capital of Jerusalem in 1291, the papacy lost its control over Christendom. There was no more “evil” to fight, and the “good” had lost its center of gravity and coherence. In 1307, France’s Philip IV (“the Fair”) seized the Church’s great military banking order’s wealth, that of the Templars in the Paris Temple. Other rulers also nationalized the Templars, and monetary systems were taken out of the hands of the Church. Without a common enemy defined and mobilized by Rome, the papacy lost its unipolar ideological power over Western Europe.

The modern equivalent to the rejection of the Templars and papal finance would be for countries to withdraw from America’s New Cold War. They would reject the dollar standard and the U.S. banking and financial system. that is happening as more and more countries see Russia and China not as adversaries but as presenting great opportunities for mutual economic advantage.

The broken promise of mutual gain between Germany and Russia

The dissolution of the Soviet Union in 1991 promised an end to the Cold War. The Warsaw Pact was disbanded, Germany was reunified, and American diplomats promised an end to NATO, because a Soviet military threat no longer existed. Russian leaders indulged in the hope that, as President Putin expressed it, a new pan-European economy would be created from Lisbon to Vladivostok. Germany in particular was expected to take the lead in investing in Russia and restructuring its industry along more efficient lines. Russia would pay for this technology transfer by supplying gas and oil, along with nickel, aluminum, titanium and palladium.

There was no anticipation that NATO would be expanded to threaten a New Cold War, much less that it would back Ukraine, recognized as the most corrupt kleptocracy in Europe, into being led by extremist parties identifying themselves by German Nazi insignia.

How do we explain why the seemingly logical potential of mutual gain between Western Europe and the former Soviet economies turned into a sponsorship of oligarchic kleptocracies. The Nord Stream pipeline’s destruction capsulizes the dynamics in a nutshell. For almost a decade a constant U.S. demand has been for Germany to reject its reliance on Russian energy. These demands were opposed by Gerhardt Schroeder, Angela Merkel and German business leaders. They pointed to the obvious economic logic of mutual trade of German manufactures for Russian raw materials.

The U.S. problem was how to stop Germany from approving the Nord Stream 2 pipeline. Victoria Nuland, President Biden and other U.S. diplomats demonstrated that the way to do that was to incite a hatred of Russia. The New Cold War was framed as a new Crusade. That was how George W. Bush had described America’s attack on Iraq to seize its oil wells. The U.S.-sponsored 2014 coup created a puppet Ukrainian regime that has spent eight years bombing of the Russian-speaking Eastern provinces. NATO thus incited a Russian military response. The incitement was successful, and the desired Russian response was duly labeled an unprovoked atrocity. Its protection of civilians was depicted in the NATO-sponsored media as being so offensive as to deserve the trade and investment sanctions that have been imposed since February. That is what a Crusade means.

The result is that the world is splitting in two camps: the U.S.-centered NATO, and the emerging Eurasian coalition. One byproduct of this dynamic has been to leave Germany unable to pursue the economic policy of mutually advantageous trade and investment relations with Russia (and perhaps also China). German Chancellor Olaf Sholz is going to China this week to demand that it dismantle is public sector and stops subsidizing its economy, or else Germany and Europe will impose sanctions on trade with China. There is no way that China could meet this ridiculous demand, any more than the United States or any other industrial economy would stop subsidizing their own computer-chip and other key sectors.[1]See Guntram Wolff, “Sholz should send an explicit message on his visit to Beijing,” Financial Times, October 31, 2022. Wolff is the director and CE of the German Council on Foreign Relations. The German Council on Foreign Relations is a neoliberal “libertarian” arm of NATO demanding German de-industrialization and dependency on the United States for its trade, excluding China, Russia and their allies. This promises to be the final nail in Germany’s economic coffin.

Another byproduct of America’s New Cold War has been to end any international plan to stem global warming. A keystone of U.S. economic diplomacy is for its oil companies and those of its NATO allies to control the world’s oil and gas supply – that is, to oppose attempts reduce dependence on carbon-based fuels. The NATO war in Iraq, Libya, Syria, Afghanistan and Ukraine was about the United States (and its French, British and Dutch allies) keeping control of oil. This is not as abstract as “Democracies vs. Autocracies.” It is about the U.S. ability to harm other countries by disrupting their access to energy and other basic needs.

Without the New Cold War’s “good vs. evil” narrative, U.S. sanctions will lose their raison d’etre in this U.S. attack on environmental protection, and on mutual trade between Western Europe and Russia and China. That is the context for today’s fight in Ukraine, which is to be merely the first step in the anticipated 20 year fight by the US to prevent the world from becoming multipolar. This process, will lock Germany and Europe into dependence on the U.S. supplies of LNG.

The trick is to try and convince Germany that it is dependent on the United States for its military security. What Germany really needs protection from is the U.S. war against China and Russia that is marginalizing and “Ukrainianizing” Europe.

ORDER IT NOW

There have been no calls by Western governments for a negotiated end to this war, because no war has been declared in Ukraine. The United States does not declare war anywhere, because that would require a Congressional declaration under the U.S. Constitution. So U.S. and NATO armies bomb, organize color revolutions, meddle in domestic politics (rendering the 1648 Westphalia agreements obsolete), and impose the sanctions that are tearing Germany and its European neighbors apart.

How can negotiations “end” a war that has no declaration of war, and is a long-term strategy of total unipolar world domination?

The answer is that no ending can come until an alternative to the present U.S.-centered set of international institutions is replaced. That requires the creation of new institutions reflecting an alternative to the neoliberal bank-centered view that economies should be privatized with central planning by financial centers. Rosa Luxemburg characterized the choice as being between socialism and barbarism. I have sketched out the political dynamics of an alternative in my recent book, The Destiny of Civilization.

    The U.S. is a satellite of the European WEF, notably Germany. The Berlin/Davos/Paris Axis of SJW Globalism gives Not-The-President Biden orders. The puppet illegitimately occupying the White House mindlessly obeys.

    The German Green Party, part of Scholz’s Traffic Light coalition, brought energy ruin to Germany. No U.S. involvement needed.

    The German Greens are also horrifying warmongers: (1)

    Germany’s Green Party conference held last weekend was a repulsive spectacle. The 817 delegates gathered in Bonn outdid one another with demands for an escalation of the war in Ukraine.

    It is hard to say which aspect of the gathering was more repugnant: the delegates’ rejection of the party’s earlier lip service to peace, disarmament, environmental protection and the phase-out of nuclear power, the cynicism with which they justified their new political line or the Greens’ disdain for and ignorance of the concerns and needs of the broad mass of the population.

    European Elites damage Europe via the EU. American presence = zip, zero, nada, bupkis.

    European Elites damage Europe via the European WEF. American vassals annually come before their European masters on their knees, groveling for orders and table scraps.

    As long as Europeans are in denial, nothing can get better. The #1 priority that European nations need to realize is:

    *European* (not American) Elites are the Problem —

    Hungary has figured this out. That is why they refuse to support Germany’s war in Ukraine.

    the germans have said that they going to cap energy prices to the german citizenry and businesses, which has enraged macron, as the french people will demand subsidies as well, destroying the plan to force the general public and businesses to solely shoulder the financial burden. this throws a major monkey wrench into their plan to dial up the pain on e.u. citizens, with the intention being to whip up hatred of the russians. cracks are appearing with the e.u. and nato, which makes me wonder if scholz, might not be having secret talks with the chinese and using his ridiculous demands as a cover.

    ‘Germany is subordinating its industry and living standards to [U.S.] dictates voluntarily – not because of military force.’ — Dr Michael Hudson

    Does a country that’s been militarily occupied for three generations possess the capacity for ‘voluntary’ action disapproved by its occupiers?

    Apparently not. Germany exhibits all the qualities of a vassal nation, attending to its own internal administration, but utterly subsuming its foreign policy to US/NATO dictates.

    Dr Hudson is correct that continuing on this path means the end of German industrial preeminence.

    I’m not as optimistic as he on the future of mixed public/private economies such as China. Massive malinvestment in China — such as its bloated property sector, owing to capital controls that limit Chinese citizens’ foreign investment opportunities — could well produce a depression like the US experienced in the 1930s.

    Nevertheless, the 1930s depression did not derail the US from briefly attaining chest-beating ‘sole superpower’ status, which is now visibly crumbling.

    This is one of Dr Hudson’s best articles. I look forward to seeing the video.

Germany’s part and parcel of the terrorist USEUNATO conglomerate, and even if they hadn’t lost the war they’d be gravitating in the same orbit of global corporate singularity as the Russia/China regimes and the US-led terrorists do, since Hitler, like Putin/Xi, was a “partner” until he wasn’t.

    For its part, Russia will have Indians, Turks, Chinese or whoever resell Russian fuels at inflated markups to Germany, and US ain’t gonna do shit about it, since economic crisis, like plandemic, “climate change”, etc., fertilises the taxcattle farmland.

    This is fucking laughable, the US itself will go after cheap resold Putin gas wherever they can cop some and then sell it to EU as US gas in “solidarity”. The “denazifiers” and “zero coviders” in the East will provide.

  14. The Crusades created a spiritual focus of “moral reform” by mobilizing hatred against “the other” – the Moslem East, and increasingly Jews and European Christian dissenters from Roman control.

    You can’t control your glib anti-Catholicism! What a smear piece. No mention that the Islamics came in and slaughtered Christians throughout the Middle East in their Jihad. Who had the “mobilizing hatred”? —it was Islam! 20,000 monks were slaughtered in the Theibad region of Egypt. 400 bishoprics in North Africa–NONE survived. Islamic terror took out 250 monasteries in Jerusalem! Who goes around with the phrase “Convert or Die”? ISLAM. Islam always spread by the sword–but to Hudson here–its the Catholics fault!

    Leo IX excommunicated the Orthodox Church

    No, he didn’t! His legate did–the Pope died while the Legate was there. The legate had no authority to do that–just a pissing contest.

    The problem with the Catholic Church, Hildebrand and others of that time period–they were Germans—and German ideas were different from the Italians in how they run things. Liege type alliances is what ran German society and the Germans germanized the papacy. It wasn’t because the Papal Office was Catholic, it was because the Papal Office was run by Germans according their own culture.

    I do not like Hudson’s analysis at all. The better on is E. Michael Jones–and the internal hatred of the Jew for the German. America is a Jewish run colony now. Jews do not fight physical wars–they fight thru finance. All finance is run by the Jews. That is how they control goyim countries. Jone’s analysis is far superior to Hudson’s approach which is secular and a white wash of what is really going on—Jew warfare thru finance.

    Hudson does not mention the EU or its current President, Ursula Van der Leyen, or George Soros and Klaus Schwab.

    When the civil war in “Ukraine” really started, Victoria Nuland became famous for the intercepted phone call to US Ambassador Piatt where she stated “F*ck the EU”. This was concerning the conflict over which Ukrainian stooge would become western “Ukraine’s” puppet president.

    Clearly, the EU would have plenty of sound motives for resisting the US domination of Europe. The EU has been desperate to create its own army for decades. There is no sound reason for the EU to allow the US cut off its eastern energy sources and to destroy all its heavy industry, mostly concentrated in Germany and the Nordic countries. There is no sound reason for formerly neutral countries like Finland and Sweden to suddenly become belligerent to Russia and to watch their economies get crushed by inflation and over priced US energy.

    There are forces at work here that are far bigger and nefarious that Hudson is willing to discuss.

This is in contrast to speculative capital (such as we see in the USA) where the seller gains and the buyer loses; e.g. – stock market, hedge funds, derivatives, futures, etc… The Hitlerian model is neither capitalistic nor communistic but is grounded in Natural Law, specifically Newton’s Third Law of Motion..

    Another thing A.H. did, this time in regards to international transactions, was to use the barter system whereby two countries would simply draw up a contract and swap, leaving the international Jew out of the picture completely, as well as demonstrating for the world to see that surprise, surprise, no one needs the middleman! No interest, no transaction fees, just good old fashioned trade – something that upset some people.

    The Hitlerian economic model is – so far – the most equitable of any economic model in the history of humans. It made possible a healthy nation that was family and child-friendly, provided for the sick and elderly, gave workers dignity and a cheerful working environment as well as generous vacations, and embraced sound environmental and animal-friendly practices.

    China won’t abandon Russia and the multipolar order. They stand to loose too much. Furthermore, Sholz is useless and America wouldn’t use him to do their bidding with China. Beijing is preparing to do what took Russia 8 years to do. A full out economic war with America takes careful planning and can’t be done willynilly. Moreover, building separate institutions with BRICS and SOC nations will take time. The East isn’t in a time crunch like the West. Beijing and Moscow have time to carefully execute their plans, however DC, Brussels, and London are running out of time. Who knows they may win their war with the West without having to fire a single shot. Rome wasn’t built in a day. Or even better as the Russians say “Moscow wasn’t built instantly.” Москва не сразу строилась.

  21. WW1 was stalemated in 1916 and continued even after Brest-Litovsk imposed German chaos on Russia and Lenin had to swallow the bitter pill.

    USA prolonged that war by entering in the final months and getting a seat at the Versailles Table where Wilson created a New Central Europe and walked away leaving everything to fester – and Herbert Hoover to feed the starving populations.

    WW2 would have been avoided had Britain actually negotiated with Molotov – Litvinov had proposed an alliance in April 1939 – but Molotov bounced down the corridor between Ribbentrop and Admiral The Honourable Sir Reginald Aylmer Ranfurly Plunkett-Ernle-Erle-Drax who had no negotiating mandate and decided the British were time-wasters.

    European History of 20th Century was a consequence of inability to grasp calamity as an outcome and a fundamental lack of pragmatism

    Now the US has imposed an ideological strait-jacket just as much as the Brezhnev Doctrine once did in the East of Europe.

    Politicians used to hiding behind NATO, EU, IMF, WEF, UN and signing up to ill-considered schemes like Mafia Families have a convocation to agree on garbage contracts and union scams – are unable to impose personality or will – because they are ciphers of US policy nothing more.

    The appealing aspects of the SCO/BRICS Collaborations are that:

    A) In addition to Finance/Banking, Key Industrial, Mineral Extraction, Defense Complex, and ENERGY Mgmt Entities are State Owned or Vested.

    A1) KSA voicing their interest to join BRICS and/or SCO may be based on the fact that KSA and most of GCC/OPEC+ Producers are Crown/State Owned. While Brandon+Blinken+Nudelman-Khagan may try to Coup MbS via Mercs+ARAMCO, BRICS/SCO Involvement would prevent such Oligarch-Coups from succeeding. SINOPEC and GAZPROM may quickly increase their Footprint in KSA – offering much more than what ARAMCO would offer and Murica would allow (purchasing of U$Treasuries, minority stakes in Corporations, etc.).

    Who may interfere with the USA Petro Cost+Profit_Pricing Bases? OPEC/VEN/RUS/IRN/PetroCN¥

    Global Warming? Bad Subject to bring up –
    Main Problems are:
    1) Pollution/Depletion of Environmental/Livestock/Agricultural Resources (Land/Aquifer/Fisheries);
    2) CO² (no subscript, sorry) Poisoning Risk *World are averaging around 460-ish ppm now.
    *Been steadily increasing for 100+years.
    *Humans start having adverse effects of short term CO² exposure at around 700ppm, with – what I call, the “Point of No Return” or the “Marching Moron Threshold” – cognitive impairment at 1000ppm.
    *Ground and Oceanic Flora aren’t keeping up with their consumption of our CO² output;
    *Oceans have been absorbing – becoming a bit more acidic. We may eventually need to be “Net Carbon Negative” for decades to balance out.

    Last time the World had the mid 400ppm CO² were apparently 2 to 5 Million Years Ago in a declining trend. Trees grew on every Land Mass and Island. I’m not saying that were going to become like a mirror image of those reconstructive approximations (especially since we appear to have Antarctica isolated completely by Oceans in this Age – making for a better Heat Sink).

    If we’re going somewhere similar – it may be more “Milder” than what Treehuggers are panicking about. Letssay all the Glaciers, Continental Ice Shelves, Permafrost, Ground Based Methane Klathrate/Hydrate Melt and/or Evaporate. Methane has a 12 year Half-Life as it breaks down into CO²andH²O. Oceanic Methane Klathrate are usually kept below sunlight and depthpressured…some shallow Coastal Deposits may dissolve in the Tropics and Sub-Tropic/Temperate Springs+Summers.

    Soil/Aquifer Depletion may parch some lands; and Deserts may expand. We may experience more frequent Hurricanes/Typhoons/Cyclones and Precipitation.

    Humanity SHOULD survive this unless Nuclear Fission and Orbital Solar (we’re sticking with what’re being deployed+expanded. No Fusion replies – my hunch is that PetroMongers are going to suppress that until they can’t extract enough Oil from Dead Humans, like Soylent Green) don’t replace Crude+Coal usage before we reach the 1000ppm CO² Threshold.

    If extremist parties wearing “German Nazi insignia” led Ukraine, the country’s leadership would not be dominated by Jews since at least 2014. How hard is that to figure out? Ukraine’s own president is Jewish. The Jews run Ukraine as much as they run the US. The US helps Ukraine because there is an alliance of the two Jewish led governments of the USA and Ukraine and American Jews oppose orthodox Russia, as the Jewish congressman Jamie Raskin said the other day. If some Ukrainians in politics wear “NAZI insignia” I suspect most Ukrainians don’t even know it. It certainly hasn’t helped the Ukrainians spread the message that the Jews were their enemy in WW II, that the Jews starved millions of Ukrainians to death before the Germans arrived. The Jews run the government, the Jews erect monuments to their own suffering and no one (except for a few Ukrainians) accuse the Jews of anything, so they can overlook some “NAZI insignia” for awhile. They will eventually be outlawed.

  26. There is more to this than the true facets of M. Hudson’s analysis.

    A new [different compartmentalization] split in Western society might be apparent. The “middle classes” are possibly cracking up in the West, since they are groomed and fed by Global Finance, the Western Cabal, and there is no longer a …Jeruzalem, Constantinopel… to feed them on. The scraps of wealth are out of the controlled territories. This is the weakest link for any real change in the West. The middle classes no longer able to feed on the drip of the faucet of Finance [Mostly Jewish, in mindset, setup, elitist]. The “zeal” [Hudson] might somehow fail.

    A far greater danger then expecting the necessary instigators of the “split” [Russia and China, and Iran as early adapter] to come up with a recycled vision of “more wealth and population to enjoy it”[the “more” economy, GDP, more pollution and energy exhaustion] that inevitably crashes into a crisis as the West so duly demonstrated [times over and understood, hence Covid, hence the need for population and consumption control if not the consequences of chaos].

    One can say of the Western Cabal [again Jewish inspired, minority driven, elitist] what one wants, but they understood at least that the above is the limit of Finance [not being able to service it’s dependencies with exo-territorial, planetary wealth]. Hence the need for “direct to the body” tactics [military capitalism (Crusades), Covid, Vaxxing, Chemical warfare, moral confusion as a goal, immigration as a war tactic]. They internalized their own Latin.

    The “ideology” of Russia and China is lacking in this understanding of the proof [industrial capitalism, growth, more trade is a solution to a next crisis] , there is no new lasting angle to circumvent the cycle economy that was a decades long Western experiment.

    I for one bet on “regression to the mean” for the expensive middle classes and overheating on the [East and South] Russia and China side before any lasting globalism can overtake. Globalism [not the current definition of Western dominance] will be the victor [in some form or shape, global accounting, planetary goal setting, quality of desire] in the long run, but this is not going to be a simple or linear process.

    Something to chew on for the next two or three generations. Good work of M. Hudson, as always, some tiny part of the picture missing.

    English King Edward the Confessor died on January 5, 1066. One year and one day after his death, on January 6, 1067, the Roman Catholic William the Conqueror was crowned king of England in Westminster Abbey.

    Then began a terrible campaign of pillage and bloodshed by the Conqueror against the English people, which culminated in the pseudo-council of Winchester in 1070, when papal legates deposed the Orthodox Archbishop Stigand, who had refused to crown William, and placed the Roman Catholic Lanfranc in his place.

    On October 15, 1072, the last English Orthodox bishop, Ethelric of Durham, after anathematizing the Pope, died in prison at Westminster, and the grace of the priesthood left the English land, in accordance with King Edward’s prophecy.

    When the Muslims killed monks and bishops in their northern African conquests, they may or may not have been aware of how the bishop in Alexandria brought in fanatical monks from desert “retreats” into the city, where at his behest they literally tore apart, limb from limb, Hypatia, the curator of the Library of Alexandria, with the greatest collection of manuscripts in the Western world. Later, they burned the library.

    ‘Without the New Cold War’s “good vs. evil” narrative, U.S. sanctions will lose their raison d’etre in this U.S. attack on … mutual trade between Western Europe and Russia and China. — Dr Michael Hudson

    This theme is expanded upon in today’s commentary by Michael Every of Rabobank:

    ‘Despite our new geopolitical era, Berlin still wants to do more trade with Beijing. Chancellor Scholz, now in China, not only ignored an open letter from 186 Chinese intellectuals and dissidents asking him not to go, but has stressed he is looking to “collaborate” wherever possible.

    ‘There was a waiting list of 100 top German firms wanting to tag along – a dozen did. In the eyes of critics, including the EU Chamber of Commerce in China, this makes Germany look like a particularly stupid dinosaur gawping up at a falling meteor and wondering if it wants to be friends.‘ — via ZeroHedge

    If Germany is forbidden by its American masters to trade with Russia, it can hardly expect a different result from attempting to expand collaboration with China, which the bellicose US now regards as an enemy too.

    Without acting to recover Germany’s sovereignty, Scholz actually will end up being just a particularly stupid dinosaur, gazing up cluelessly at the incoming meteor.

    One omission, though. When Mr. Hudson writes:

    What ended the papacy’s power over other countries was the ending of its war against the East. When the Crusaders lost Acre, the capital of Jerusalem in 1291, the papacy lost its control over Christendom. There was no more “evil” to fight, and the “good” had lost its center of gravity and coherence.

    he forgets that the papacy, after the sack of Constantinople by the crusaders in 1204 (“the greatest crime against humanity”, according to British historian Steven Runciman), continued to harass Constantinople until it fell to the Ottomans in 1453. That is when Moscow took over the leadership of Orthodox Christianity.

    Soon America will be a Holy Land like Paraguay where the middle class, money, schools, hospitals, hygiene and law enforcement are unnecessary. It is good that Washington DC has so many key players loyal to the One Holy Apostolic Church – that made Bolivia and Paraguay into those ‘shining cities on a hill’ and inspired the youthful morality of Dr. Tony Fauci.

    Germany lost most of their military age men in WW2 and then their Eastern half was occupied by the USSR until 1990.

    They definitely made a mistake by adopting the Euro but the current economic situation is nothing compared to 1945. Their industrial capability was reduced to bricks and yet they were a global economic power within 10 years.

    Climate change BS is they main tool the globalists use to tamp down nationalism and populism. They switched to the Covid hoax for a while just to keep it interesting, but are quickly switching back to the tried and true climate change. Michael Crichton figured it out in the 90s with his book State of Fear. The media, politicians and lawyers always need a great fear to keep the masses in line.

    It seems to me that the push by elites to have one world government is not to privatize public goods in 3rd world countries as Hudson suggests, but to destroy traditional family values in favor of secularism along with diluting white populations with easier controlled brown people.

    The Germans had their glory days from the late 19th century to the late 1930s. But after Uncle Adolph transmogrified Germany into the hellish cesspool of Nazism, the Germans have been going downhill ever since WWII.

    Is this latest attack on Germany’s economy simply a recontinuation of the Morgenthau Plan of the 1940s under the control of the exact same banking groups?

    The original post-World War Two Morgenthau Plan was an attempt to fulfill the revenge fantasies of Jews while at the same time fulfilling London’s long held desire to remove Germany as its main industrial competitor.

    Many Germans were deliberately killed during the time the Plan was being instituted from 1945 to roughly 1947-48., mainly through deliberate starvation and neglect overseen in large part in large part by Bernard Baruch’s long-time (with links going back to at least 1931) protege Dwight Eisenhower.

    It was only when General George Marshall was finally able to essentially go behind Eisenhower’s back and convince the rather stupid President Harry Trump as to genocide that was actually going on that The Morgenthau Plan was then short circuited and the far more benevolent Marshall Plan put in its place.

    Many millions have since died in the seemingly unending number of “Color Revoutions” the US government has engineered in foreign countries since the end of World War Two.

    Maybe we should recategorize the Morgenthau Plan as not being especially unique but rather just the first in a long line of post World War two “Color Revolutions”.

    Just like the one we now seem to be experiencing ourselves in the USA.

    Exploit the resources of Russia? After this war is over Russia will return to selling them oil and gas while begging for new vehicles and machinery. Huge amounts of medicine and medical equipment will also be needed. The trade of Russian oil for German products has been going on since WW2. It is mutually beneficial and not exploitation.

    Germany will be sitting pretty when this is all over. The chip shortage looks like it will be continuing for a few years and German vehicles and machines will be backordered which means premium prices.

    The global economy will explode and Americans and Russians will be lining up for German cars. Ukraine will also put in all kinds of orders for machines, medicine and also German weapons.

    Germany will boost the Euro like they always do. That will allow them to buy more American products.

    ‘How would a 5% one-time expenditure make [German] manufacturing uncompetitive in even the short-term, not to mention medium and long?’ — BlackFlag

    It’s not just a one-time expenditure to build LNG facilities. LNG is inherently costlier than piped natural gas owing to its required liquefaction, transport and regasification, requiring additional energy input.

    US industry has access to natural gas at its domestic source, before LNG conversion and transport costs are tacked on. Thus German chemical and fertilizer companies will face a long-term disadvantage competing with their US counterparts.

    To put it differently, if the NordStream 1 and 2 natural gas pipelines were operational, Germany would have no interest in LNG because it wouldn’t be competitive. LNG is a costly workaround for a politically imposed natural gas supply interruption.

    “ Both Catholicism and Talmudism are evil entities, seeking always to control the minds and emotions of those they rule by fear, greed and hypocrisy.”

    The root of the problem is Universalism. That plague started with the conquests of Alexander the Great whose ambition was to unite the world, then Catholicism ( Catholic meaning the Universal way), then Islam. All three Universalist movements led to rivers of blood and extreme hardship to humanity and all failed at their objective.

    Nowadays, Talmudism is leading the charge of a more sinister Universalism that is devoid of any semblance of real human values, backed by advanced technology and the cumulative knowledge in the field of psychology, along with the financial control of the world economy. That is bound to fail but not before exposing mankind to the worst trials and tribulations in recorded history.

    You mentioned the repulsive example of Hypatia and the Library of Alexandria, to which I will add another sad chapter of history in the Levant. When between the seventh and the eighth century AD, the Maronites, who were part of the Easter Church of the Levant, accepted to go under the tutelage of the Papacy, the first act towards the integration of those Syriac speaking people was to impose on them to change their language to Arabic so they could be used as intermediaries and missionaries with the rising Muslim communities in the Middle East, and what followed was the burning of their manuscripts thereby destroying an important part of their collective memory.

    It is noteworthy that the rise of Christianity in the Levant before Constantine was an almost bloodless phenomenon when mostly Christians were martyred but hardly on a large scale the way it happened in Rome. Christianity took extreme forms of violence with its spreading in Europe, culminating in the religious wars after the Protestant reformation. That begs the question of whether Europe was Chritianised or Christianity Europeanized.

    The Commission believes the pending trade deals in Latin America, such as Mercosur, as well as other deals with Chile and Mexico, are key to achieving that goal. The agreement with Mercosur, which was concluded in 2020, is especially important, given it would cover a major market and be a huge boost to the EU’s relations with Latin America.

The carry trade in the Forex market looked good seven years ago but can this be said today? Would these wild speculative investments exist along side a gold backed dollar today?..I think not.

The US dollar is still 61% of the global central bank reserve currencies. The economy of China is dependent on trillions of dollars (dollar credits) that they borrowed when the interest rates in the US were nearly zero, and the interest rates in China were 3 to 5%. So they borrowed these very cheap loans in the dollar, thinking that this would last forever.

    Agreed.

    In 2018, US Treasury Secretary Steve Mnuchin intended to negotiate a recalcitrant BeiJing Administration to apply sanctions on itself, that being to pull back on every technological advance and allow the United States to overtake – – –

    – Artificial Intelligence, Industrial Patents, Super Computing, Advanced Software, Advanced Logistics, 5G and now 6G, Industrial Robotics, Ultra-High Density Integrated Circuits, Quantum Research, Space-Based Applications, Advanced Weapons Development including Hypersonic Weapons, Electro-Magnetics and Artificial Intelligence.

    BeiJing politely said no but have been less polite since and Washington imposed sanctions that have damaged American industrial interests as China pursues self-sufficiency and closer integration with Russia and other countries in this their dominant geo-political arrangement, The Great Eurasian Union.

    China, incidentally, graduates more musicians than The United States graduates scientists and engineers and China’s graduates overall run to several million each year. Chinese people display an unmistakable commitment to their country as a whole. This cannot be said of The United States or other Western states where the much vaunted freedom of the individual is code for a cult of the self.

    ”The treaty was devised in the early 1990s at the end of the Cold War to give investors confidence in the new democracies in eastern Europe, whose previous Communist governments had a habit of suddenly nationalising industries or cancelling projects.”

    “It is unbelievable the EU agreed to lock in fossil protection for at least another decade,” says Cornelia Maarfield, trade and investment policy expert at the NGO Climate Action Network Europe. “This means countries will continue to spend taxpayers’ money in compensating fossil fuel companies rather than fighting climate change and moving to a renewable energy system. Adopting the reform would also come with a reckless expansion of the treaty to hydrogen, biomass and other energy materials, exposing us to even greater risks of uncapped compensation claims in future.”

    However, the Commission is warning that staying in the reformed treaty is a better option than leaving it, since the ‘sunset clause’ keeps countries liable for 20 years if they leave, while the reform makes them liable for half that time if they stay. The Commission told Brussels media that all EU countries endorsed the outcome of the reform negotiations in June, and the EU executive appears to have been caught off guard by the sudden exodus that has taken place over the last two weeks, with France, Spain, Poland and the Netherlands all announcing their intention to leave. Germany and Belgium have said they are considering it.

    “We are critical of the result achieved on a number of points,” said Dutch energy and climate policy minister Rob Jetten when announcing the country’s withdrawal on 18 October. “The treaty continues to offer too much protection to the fossil fuel industry.”

  194. I have problems with the ‘Cold War’ narrative.

    Prior to 1991 the Empire’s principal and genuine foe was the Soviet Union. After this Japan was accused of being the next menace. Focus later shifted to the Middle East.

    A multi-polar world is developing today. Bankster Jim O’Neill coined the term BRICS to describe this phenomenon. India, Brazil, and South Africa were comical additions. Washington is trying to prevent this from happening so as to maintain the old order and hegemony.

    The ‘Sleeping Giant’ is now awake and has industrialized after three failed attempts under the Qing dynasty, Republic of China or ROC, and People’s Republic of China (1949 to 1978).

    Consequently, it has amassed trillions in sovereign wealth. This money is used as leverage on the global stage. It is also financing military hardware that will be used to eventually challenge the Empire in the South China Sea and beyond.

    Thwarting the supply of Russian natural gas to Europe is just the beginning. Last year Gina Raimondo was explicit about disrupting Germany’s relationship with its biggest trading partner, China, where Volkswagen sells many of its products.

    Europe is problematic because it is no longer fragmented. What is now called the European Union was once merely a common market. After various treaties, it has become more cohesive and autonomous. The preceding sentence isn’t an endorsement of EUcrats bankrolled mainly by German taxpayers.

    Cold War plus ‘Destroy This Mad Brute’ soundbites and memes are used to herd Europe. Local leaders are still viewed as subordinates. In case some have forgotten, Merkel’s phone was allegedly hacked by a certain government.

    NATO expansion, Quadrilateral Security Dialogue, and AUKUS are different manifestations of the same agenda.

    Since we are all still living in Amerika, be it physically or digitally or culturally, the George Lucas movie or film ‘The Empire Strikes Back’ is an appropriate metaphor for current events.

    “Convert or die” did NOT apply to the “people of the book” (Christians, Jews, Zoroastrians); they “only” had to pay the jizziya.

    Then, as to @IronForge’s reply Jesus+Christianity were a Constantine-Sponsored Syncretic Cult – an Amalgamated Fabrication of Chrestus, Mythras, Dionysus, and other “Expiring Cults” of the 4thCE attempting to incorporate/hijack Judaism+their Messiah,

    Edouard M. Gallez (in: Die Entstehung einer Weltreligion VI, Verlag Schiler & Mücke, Berlin/Tübingen 2021, pp.298 sq.) writes of “la croyance encore largement répandue, selon laquelle le christianisme aurait été fabriqué au Concile de Nicée (325). De là est née la croyance en un ‘christianisme pré-nicéen’ (sans la foi en la divinité du Christ) opposable à un ‘christianisme post-nicéen’ (qui l’aurait fabriquée). […] Mais peut-on ignorer la diversité originelle de ses formes? Car quand on découvre l’existence de cinq ou six formes de christianisme toutes aussi originelles les unes que les autres, plus aucun schéma réducteur ne peut s’appliquer. Et cette diversité vient de l’apostolat des apôtres et de leurs disciples dans des régions aussi éloignées que l’Espagne d’un côté et la Chine de l’autre, ou que le Caucase au nord et la Nubie au sud, sans oublier la diversité des nations et cultures situées entre ces extrêmes – et en particulier l’immense et hétéroclite empire parthe dont la langue officielle était justement l’araméen, la langue des juifs et… des apôtres. La connaissance de cette civilisation araméenne, centrale entre le monde gréco-romain et la Chine, éclaire les débuts du christianisme; sans cet éclairage pourtant substantiel depuis les découvertes récentes de l’archéologie [note: (…) Pierre Perrier, L’Apôtre Thomas et le prince Ying, éd. Jubilé, 2012 (…) Le Catholicos arménien Sahak III Dzoporetsi et l’Eglise de Chine, in Actes du Colloque de Paris des 1er décembre et 30 décembre 2012, éd. AED, Paris 2013, pp. 123-166 (…) etc] on en vient vite à croire que le christianisme est gréco-latin […] Il convient de changer notre paradigme europeano-centrique. C’est déjà un progrès de tenir compte du christianisme syriaque, mais, s’il est héritier de formes originelles du christianisme (ce qui est parfois nié), il se trouve enfermé dans l’empire romain et soumis à une pression grecque intense [note: non seulement l’obligation était faite aux prêtres de célébrer en grec, mais le nom même de leur communauté a été hellénisé: kristyonè au lieu de mesihoyè (…)]. Mais comparé aux nombreuses communautés araméennes de l’Eglise de l’Orient (basée à Séleucis-Ktésiphon), il est minoritaire. Le problème de fond est de tenir compte des multiples formes prises par le christianisme des apôtres, selon les régions du monde où ils sont allés – toutes ces formes ayant en commun un solide socle hébréo-araméen. C’est ce socle qu’il faut regarder, sans vouloir y trouver à tout prix des concepts grecs qui nous sont familiers mais qui seront définis plus tard. […] Un manque de connaissances du monde sémitique est ainsi à l’origine de confusions (…). En fait, toutes ces mécompréhensions ont des racines très anciennes, remontant aux Byzantins. Ceux-ci ont joué un rôle déterminant en imposant leurs manières de voir et de raisonner: ils ont voulu donner des définitions conceptuelles à la foi, créant davantage de problèmes qu’ils prétendaient en résoudre. (…) Il convient plutôt de privilégier les sources extérieures au monde de l’empire gréco-latin, et en particulier celles hébréo-araméennes de l’Eglise de l’Orient, même si elles sont moins nombreuses que d’autres suite aux destructions islamiques systématiques (…)”,

    in short, it is the almost universal ignorance of the true primitive diversity of the Apostles’ creed, that leads almost everyone to believe in such falsehoods as those put forward by @IronForge.

    In addition to the poignant commentary by Brosi, please take a look at how the poison vax plays into the programs described by the consortium described. The vax attacks the pineal gland, the well preserved and well blooded control center in the brain, causing disruptions of several crucial processes, including that of reproduction. The destruction of the ionosphere is the cause behind the Al Gore hoax of “global warming,” the hoax now being peddled by the likes of Greta Thunberg. The moonlanding hoax was the prelude to the current attempts to undertake “space travel,” but first the roof of the house has to be destroyed for unfailing exits and returns. An Earth without an ionosphere won’t work, nor will the creatures on the planet be able to exist. In 2030 the blocking of the sun is scheduled; only those well vaxxed GMO’s will not suffer the detriment of a sunless Earth; humans and animals alike. Why do you think the hoax “Global Warming” was created? It’s a distraction from the attacks on the protective layers around the Earth, by EMF, causing weather anomalies. Nothing has to do with “warming of the Earth,” but with major disturbances to the weather caused by tearing the plasma layers around the Earth with EMF. In these layers resides the life force, the energy and light frequencies that humans need to exist. Without it we cannot exist. The Cabal of which Brosi writes foresees an artificial life force, distributed by means of artificial frequences, for the ultimate control of humanity. That’s where we are heading. Open your eyes…

    Not that I am aware of. Rammstein theatrics seem to be the forte of their dramatic lead, … this Till Lindemann, …. and I believe he is a sensitive soul (like so many artists) and deeply feels the glory, the violence, the pagan-rooted willfullness, the Teutonic drive for order under these conditions, to overcome the chaos-of-humanity-so-unleashed, ….. and the resulting outlook of melancholy that then arises, among men feeling these existential ethnic-like-tensions, emerging from the bosom of the instrument of these ethnic drives, that bore these now modern men – Germania, …. still emerging after all this time, somehow still emerging, after first seeded in biblical times.

    German actress Ruby Commey plays Germania in this masterful Rammstein production. She was pitch-perfect, as far as I can tell, in keeping with the themes I think Lindemann was going, for, as I expressed in the paragraph above. I think Ruby Commey was the perfect choice to play Germania, because, she obviously possesses the proclivity for displaying a purity and rawness of the emotional expressions that flash over her face (performed without inhibition), the perfect emotional dynamic to represent an ethnic nation, … and as well, for a man of Lindemann’s sensitivities, I think depicting Germania as a black woman, might be a purposeful decision to artfully present it this way, to highlight the conflicted nature (racial pride,…. racial disgust, …. leading to racial melancholy, and a hope for a return to racial glory, …. perhaps for the sake of the glory of the entire humanity this time) felt by the likes of Lindemann (and myself for that matter, …. even though I come from some offshoots of the Germania that arose in central Europe in biblical times, ….. my ancestors are Irish/Scottish/English – with all 4 parts of the family ancestry featuring these heritages, residing in areas of Ireland, Scotland and England, that also experienced various repetitive Norse and Danish genotype inoculations).

    If I am interpreting Lindemanns’ artistic expression correctly, …. then I think, this artistic vid, allows me more-so to feel what Lindeman feels, about his place in the world, …. a hallmark of truly great art.

    I’m not against a green agenda. But i dislike LIES, data falsification, and interpretation by corrupt or incompetent so-called scientists. I also wonder why the meme ”global warming” has been changed for ”climate change”.

    (Please see the graph below from NOOA)

    ISES Solar Cycle Sunspot Number Progression
    Set Zoom on ALL to have the X-axis (Universal Time) graduated from years 1750 to 2025.

    https://www.swpc.noaa.gov/products/solar-cycle-progression

    According to the graph, the sunspot number cyclically varies, reaching maximum and minimum values every 12 years approx.

    Furthermore, the maximum (peak) value reached during each 12-year cycle cyclically increases and decreases over time, as if modulated by a sinusoidal signal having a time period of about 200 years.

    Thus the minimum value of the sunspot number stayed low (peak magnitude below 100) between 1800 and 1830. Reportedly, record low temperatures and droughts occurred in the United States during this period. This corresponds to the minimum value of a (hypothetic) 200-year cycle.

    200 years later, i.e., from year 2000 to 2022, the minimum value of the sunspot number stayed low (about 100 or lower).

    If the displayed data is reliable, we might be heading for a prolonged period of record-low temperatures and droughts, as in 1830. So not really towards a global warming.

    You might be right. If Macron is censoring Rumble (headquarters in Canada and US), it seems Europe has some agency, at the very least.

    I strongly agree with a ‘green agenda’ if it means the 3R (reduce, re-use, recycle), stop destroying forests, rivers, lakes, stop this absurd excessive, compulsive consumption of goods to fill a moral void. The West is in no position to lecture other countries, including China, about pollution.

    My text was not a ‘cut and paste’. It’s how i interpret the graph shown by the NOAA. Mr Engdahl wrote several interesting articles related to this. For example:

    World Extreme Weather: Is it Man or Something Else?
    http://www.williamengdahl.com/englishNEO26August2019.php

    What astrophysicists have documented is that our sun—by far the greatest factor for whether we experience heat or cold spells, El Nino Pacific events, or severe volcanic or earthquake activity as in the past months—that the sun undergoes a complex cyclical series of intense activity followed by declining activity, activity commonly known as sunspots or solar eruptions, huge electro-magnetic events. Typically the sun eruptions come in roughly 11 year cycles of peaks and lows. These cycles overlay longer cycles and relate to the highly complex motion of our solar system in the universe. Currently since 2018 we are experiencing a period of significant decline in solar activity, a solar minimum.

    […]

    The US Government’s National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) says, “All weather on Earth, from the surface of the planet out into space, begins with the Sun. Space weather and terrestrial weather (the weather we feel at the surface) are influenced by the small changes the Sun undergoes during its solar cycle. The most important impact the Sun has on Earth is from the brightness or irradiance of the Sun itself.”

    What are the effects of a weaker solar activity, a more dormant cycle as we now experience of less solar energy or irradiance reaching Earth? In addition to increased cloud coverage globally, the vital jet streams weaken and volcanic activity increases, along with earth quakes, combined with erratic unpredictable weather. […] In some regions there will be significantly more drought while in others significant flooding with major effect on world food production possible. The weaker solar activity, known as Solar Minimum, also correlates with a global cooling trend. This has been documented going back centuries and longer.

    The current solar cycle, called by NASA the Number 24 Cycle, peaked in early 2014 before starting its measurable decline in annual sunspot activity. The minimum is predicted to take place in 2020. It could last for years. Some predict a new “mini Ice Age.

    Germany is run by the CIA. Soros Uber Alles. Then there’s the aftermath of being kinghit with the Greatest Lie Ever Told, the Hollow Hoax. The Anglo-Zionists out-Goebbelsed the Propagandameister himself with that whopper. Lies don’t really come any bigger, do they?

    Each time Germany starts to get anywhere it gets hit with another right hook from the tranny worshippers. Now it’s an engineered energy shortage. The world has energy aplenty. But we aren’t allowed to use it.

  223. @Hulkamania

    You are retarded. The US military would never willingly leave Germany.

    I would support shutting down the bases but the Germans wouldn’t. Not the politicians anyways.

    Has nothing to do with politics and everything to do with economics.

    It would be like suggesting that the Florida keys shut down spring break.

    Germans may complain at times but 21 year old military men with gov money keep a lot of beer flowing.

    Yes, millions world-wide understand that, except the American herd of sheep. The 2020 election just confirmed their misunderstanding by electing the Zionist politburo.

    Okay, maybe I should apologize to Americans. But to me it’s irritating, jarring, to read “math” with no “s”.

    I totally agree.

    Unfortunately where I come from, so many unthinking young people are doing the same. They now even celebrate Halloween, a holiday totally alien to our culture.

    That is the power of US propaganda/soft power for you. Who needs a large conquering army when you have Hollywood?

  227. It’s about that time when empty rhetoric is spewed forth about the “troops” & former cannon fodder. Such rhetoric can be found @ this here link, where “Google” claims to be “supporting” veterans…LOL.

    https://blog.google/outreach-initiatives/diversity/veterans-day-2022-en/?utm_source=hpp&utm_medium=referral&utm_campaign=veteransday22

    Yet the truth is Amerikka treats its vets like feces, & holidays like this are just emotional blackmail to get the flag waving USian morons (redundant) steeped in jingoistic nationalistic pride as they stuff their Anglo and indoctrinated “diversity” faces w/ propaganda and of course, corn syrup, red dye 5, and salt. Yankee doodle dipshits.

    If Amerikka really cared about its discarded cannon fodder, dontcha think it’d “support” them ALL the time…not just 4 one day? And why is there still no universal health care like every other country in the world since Amerikkka really cares abt the debt/taxes slaves “wellness”…wear a mask… Oops.

    Not quite. Hard to take seriously any author who so easily peddles half truths.

    For instance,

    “The NATO war in Iraq, Libya, Syria, Afghanistan and Ukraine was about the United States (and its French, British and Dutch allies) keeping control of oil.”

    A few years ago General Wesley Clark who has Jewish credentials himself, disclosed he’d been let in on a little secret in 2001: he was told 7 wars had been planned in 5 years by the likes of Jewish neocons such as Paul Wolfowitz.

    Iraq was the first port of call followed by Libya and Syria (which of course Israel has no interest in, least of all the Golan heights). Libya also falls under the scope of Greater Israel and I guess a perk of taking out Gadaffi was it became easier to ship illegals over by the bucket-loads from Libya. Wesley even says this deliberate plan of attack can be traced back to 1991.

    Wesley Clark has made this speech a few times and the reasons he cites vary from “oil” to “taking out Saddam”. The fact these wars tie into the Yinon Plan, “A Clean Break” and PNAC all driven by Jewish neocons to bring about Greater Israel is never mentioned.
