As much as with “brain dead” NATO (copyright Emmanuel Macron) no one ever lost precious assets betting on the incompetence, narrow-mindedness and cowardice of political “leaders” across the Atlanticist EU.

There are two main reasons for the latest German legalese gambit of suspending the certification of the Nord Stream 2 pipeline.

  1. Retaliation, directly against Belarus and Russia, “guilty” of the disgraceful refugee drama at the Poland-Belarus border.
  2. Politicking by the German Greens.

A high-ranking European energy executive told me, “this a game where Germany does not hold a winning hand. Gazprom is very professional. But imagine if Gazprom decided to deliberately slow down their deliveries of natural gas. It could go up tenfold, collapsing the entire EU. Russia has China. But Germany does not have a workable contingency plan.”

This ties up with a proposal that is sitting at a crucial desk in Moscow for approval for two years now, as I reported at the time: an offer by a reputable Western energy firm of \$700 billion for Russia to divert their oil and gas exports to China and other Asian customers, away from the EU.

This proposal was actually the key reason for Berlin to resolutely counteract the U.S. drive to stop Nord Stream 2. Yet the torture never stops. Russia now faces an additional hurdle: a carbon tax on exports to the EU which include steel, cement and electricity. That may well be extended to oil and natural gas.

Every sentient being across the EU knows that Nord Stream 2 is the easiest path to lower natural gas prices across Europe, and not the EU’s blind neoliberal bet of buying short term in the spot market.

“They are going to freeze”

Seems like the Bundesnetzagentur, the German energy regulator, woke up from a deep slumber just to find out that the Swiss-based company Nord Stream 2 AG did not meet the conditions to be an “independent transmissions operator” and could be certified only if it was “organized in a legal form under German law.”

The fact that neither the Germans nor the Swiss company were aware of it during the long, previous, always turbulent stages is very hard to believe. So now it looks like Nord Stream 2 AG will have to establish a subsidiary under German law only for the German section of the gas pipeline.

As it stands, the company is not “in a position” to comment on details and especially “the timing of the start of the pipeline operations.”

Nord Stream 2 AG will have to transfer capital and personnel to this new subsidiary, which will then have to present a full set of documentation for certification all over again.

Translation: gas from Nord Stream 2 will be absent during the coming winter in Europe and the pipeline, at best, might start running only by mid-2022.

And that certainly ties in with the politicking angle, as the German regulators are de facto waiting for the new German ruling coalition to emerge, including the neoliberal Greens who are viscerally anti-Nord Stream and anti-Russia.

The European energy executive did not mince his words on a quite possible scenario: “If Germany does not obtain their oil and natural gas by land now they cannot fashion a fall back position, as there is not sufficient LNG capacity or oil for that matter to supply the EU this winter. They are going to freeze. Much of their economy will be forced to shut down. Unemployment will soar. It would take four years to build up LNG capacity for natural gas but who will build it for them?”

Germany has zero margin of maneuver to dictate conditions to Gazprom and Russia. The gas that Gazprom won’t sell to northern Europe will be sold to eastern and southern Europe via Turk Stream, and most of all to Asian clients, which do not engage in blackmail and pay much better than the Europeans.

What is also clear is that if by a misguided political decision Nord Stream 2 gas is eventually blocked, the fines to be collected by Gazprom from the European consortium that begged for the construction of the pipeline may exceed 200 billion euros. The consortium is made up of Engie, Shell, Uniper, Wintershall Dea and OMV.

It’s against this background that the offer on the table in Moscow becomes even more than a game-changer. The bold recommendation to the Kremlin – with financing already in place – is that Russia’s natural resources including oil and natural gas should be redirected to China, as part of the Russia-China strategic partnership.

The proposal argues that Russia needs no trade with the EU, as China is way ahead of them in most advanced technologies. That certainly provides Moscow with the upper hand in any negotiations with any German government. As I mentioned it to the European energy executive, his terse comment was, “I doubt they will desire to commit suicide.”

It’s all Putin’s fault

It would be too much to expect from German and EU politicians the clear-sightedness of the government of Serbia, which is considering importing 3 billion cubic meters of Russian natural gas annually for 10 years. Gazprom has been on the record for years demonstrating the practical, reliable and cost-conscious aspects of long-term contracts.

Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov, commenting on the migrant crisis at the Poland-Belarus border, noted how “Poland behaves outrageously, while the leadership in Brussels applies double standards that are so apparent and naked that they can’t fail to understand that they are embarrassing themselves.”

The case of Nord Stream 2 adds extra layers to EU self- embarrassment as it concerns the wellbeing of populations already living inside Fortress Europe. Let them freeze, indeed – or pay virtual fortunes for natural gas that should be readily available.

As we all know, Germany, Nord Stream 2, Ukraine, Belarus, it’s all interlinked. And according to a Ukrainian lunatic profiting from an Atlanticist platform, it’s all Putin’s fault – guilty of conducting hybrid war against the EU.

ORDER IT NOW

It will be up to the “resolve of Poland and Lithuania” to “counter the Kremlin threat”. The ideal framework in this case should be the Lublin Triangle – which unites Poland and Lithuania with Ukraine. These are the lineaments of the new Iron Curtain, erected by the Atlanticists, from the Baltic to the Black Sea, to “isolate” Russia. Predictably, German Atlanticists are a crucial part of the package.

Of course, to be successful, these actors should “also seek greater U.S. and UK engagement”, with every movement complementing “the role of NATO as the ultimate guarantor of peace in the region”.

So behold, EU mortals: a “perfect storm of Russian aggression during the coming winter months” is all but inevitable. Watch it on your screens while you properly freeze.

  1. When Merkelistan freezes, it will, of course, be blamed on “Russian aggression”. I wonder if the Ukranazi coup regime in Banderastan will be prevailed on to attack the Donbass as well so that Russia is compelled to step in. When the Banderastanis get smacked down – with or without Russian help to the DPR and LPR – it will, again, be called “Russian aggression” and will be the perfect pretext to seal the deal.

  2. Pardon me, maybe I have misunderstood what the author was trying to say, but I thought that the campaign against Nord Stream 2 and Turkish Stream started in the Summer of 2020 with a sanctions initiative led by several Republican senators in the USA. They even wrote a letter, openly threatening the not-Russian construction companies, etc. A political crisis was provoked in Bulgaria, with the aim to stop Turkish Stream, etc.
    And now Escobar is writing about the latest German gambit – but it’s not German, if it’s happening because of pressure from abroad. And “Germany does not hold a winning hand” – of course it doesn’t! They are supposed to be the losers from the whole thing. No Russian gas for those pesky Germans and their wannabe Fourth Reich!
    The UK is sending the army to the Poland-Belarus border! Jingle bells ringing, yes?
    So, it’s obvious the Germans are under immense pressure – and giving in. Bulgaria is also under immense pressure, although the topic about the pipeline has not surfaced yet. But it will, if the change of power succeeds.
    So, it’s not self-embarrasment by the EU countries. It’s a display of brain-not-fully-dead NATO hiearachy. The junior partners are being clobbered by the senior partners, or directly primed for war, and prepped to turn into a war-field, in the case with Poland and soon other countries from the Eastern periphery.

  3. The Greens are a suicide cult.

    If they were to take power they’d run the country like a progressive experiment, which would then fail and real authoritarianism would take its place.

    Maybe that’s the plan for the West: peak leftism, followed by a sharp correction. Cold hearths and food shortages to get the sheep to demand autocracy. What better way than a manufactured energy crisis?

    Germany is currently considered harder COVID lockdowns because people are coofing their lungs out:

    Germany sets ‘grim’ Covid record & eyes new curbs

    For the first time since the start of the pandemic, the number of new daily Covid cases in Germany has exceeded 60,000, according to the country’s disease control and prevention agency, the Robert Koch Institute.

    Authorities fear that in reality the figure is even higher, as not all cases are immediately reported or detected. Just a week ago, the number of daily infections across Germany surpassed the 50,000 mark.

    Among the country’s Covid hotspots are Thuringia, Saxony and Bavaria. In the latter region, hospitals are so overwhelmed with Covid patients that they have had to put off any non-emergency surgery.

    It’s going to be a long-ish winter. Wind power and solar ain’t gonna cut it.

    Hopefully unruly immigrants will not decide to commandeer trucks to roll over civilians trying to get Glühwein past their mask at the traditional winter huts. That would be the straw breaking the camel’s back.

    I’m not so sure there’s no plan. Depopulate Europe, “rewild” the “public facing” areas whilst strip-mining and literally destroying all ecosystems that get in the way of their greed and their fetish for lythium and what-not.

    This has been planned for a long time! And the plan will be implemented through agenda 21/30, and the theft of the “Global Commons” that that agendas’ implementation entales.

    The question remains, who would ever dream up such a diabolical plan for Europe and the World? What insane religious cult commands its adherents to utterly destroy the world for their own direct benefit, if any such “religion”, or “spiritual” tradition exists ??? (One wonders just exactly ((who))) is “pivoting east”.)

    It was the US, and still is, acting on behalf of certain Jewish bankers, that opposed NS2. Sad that Escobar thinks Unz’s readers are dumb and brain dead.

    The truth is that the bankers that pull Biden’s strings wish you to think that it is the German’s fault that NS2 has gone pear shaped. Whereas the truth is that it is the banking empire of the rich and greedy that is trying to close down Europe and destroy the Europeans.

    Of course, Escobar, being South American and in the employ of the Chinese while pushing CIA misinformation couldn’t care a pig’s f*rt in a thunderstorm for the 600 million Europeans that face a harsh winter.

    Putin literally told Lukashenko, whom he can’t stand, to not interrupt gas shipments through Belarus from Russia to the “west” and to stop the farce at the border, which is a total farce because of the actual numbers involved (3-4000 refugees).

    Sad that Escobar thinks Unz’s readers are dumb and brain dead.

    A certain fraction of any website’s readers are stupid. And I’ve seen enough “lefty” sites to know they’re just the same.

    This is a pretty good article by Mr. Escobar. If it had included a couple things it would have been even better.

    … Europe for years has pushed for day-to-day spot pricing, instead of long-term contracts. Russian-controlled gas giant Gazprom has fulfilled those long-term contracts but hasn’t pumped additional gas beyond that. Mr. Putin says customers who have those contracts pay much less for gas than other buyers.

    Russia has been rigorously fulfilling contracts, but hasn’t done a speck more than that. It wants long-term contracts despite the potential for lower income, but the Euros won’t sign them.

    IMO the European leaders are quite capable of acting like fools without the Apartheid state helping with that.

    @El Dato

    Sounds weird. Sounds actually like bribery.

    It cannot be anything other than bribery.

    Where are the Asian customers? If those customers seek increased supplies of Russian gas would they not negotiate direct? Are Asians unable to advocate their own interests? Where is the evidence of Asia freezing to death or experiencing such an increased energy demand that they are willing to make such a payment. A payment which appears to be independent of the cost of transmission lines and the purchase price of the gas.

    Why is a “reputable Western energy firm” engaged in making the offer? Since the gas supplies are produced and marketed by a reputable Russian energy firm and purchased by reputable Asian energy firms, what role does a Western energy firm play?

    If Escobar’s article is correct a Western third party is proposing to make a payment to cause Russia to market its gas to Asia? Why would the reputable Western firm pay this money if it is not involved in the production, or transport, distribution and utilization of the gas in Asia?

    The only “reputable” angle I can perceive is that of a Western energy firm with a surplus of NG which it seeks to ship as LNG to the European market. It will have difficulty doing that as pipeline NG undercuts the price of LNG. From this perspective it may be very profitable to give Russia a financial incentive to turn its back on Europe and set about selling Russian NG elsewhere.

    The reputable Western firm then profits as the Europeans freeze to death and become willing to pay the most exorbitant prices for the reputable Western firms’ shipped LNG to replace the NG re-marketed to Asia.

    This has the added benefit of demonstrating Russia to be an untrustworthy and unreliable partner. The reputable Western firm can take advantage of this by claiming “our LNG may be expensive but we are saving lives the Russians put at risk. Never trust them again.” The result would be a lock on the EU LNG market which would likely continue for a period of decades. The price premium exacted from the EU would cover not just the expensive LNG but also the cost of the bribe sitting on Putin’s desk.

    The US would gain further benefit exploiting the resulting schism between the EU and Russia. This would further the interests of US hegemony and control of the EU as a collection of dependent vassal states. Would not be surprised to learn a significant portion of the bribe money was derived from the USG and its current Build Back Better campaign.

  22. Alfred says:

    It is important to understand what is really going on in the background:

    1- The Americans don’t want competition from Europe. A high gas price for Europe will result in industries collapsing and less competition.

    2- The City of London (i.e. Jews) want Europe to move away from long-term contracts with Russia. They control the media and public opinion. They can make the daily gas price fluctuate wildly – they make money from the price going either way.

    3- The EU Commissioners are unelected functionaries with almost unlimited powers. Who do you think controls them?

    4- 1/3 of MEP’s are in the pay of George Soros.

    5- A gas price controlled by bankers would be used to attack Russia.

    A look at what is happening with the silver price is illustrative. For many years, consumption has been rising while production has been falling. Any economist would tell you that would lead to a rising price. But that is not the case as the number of silver contracts exceeds the physical market by a factor of 100. Anytime the silver price rises, punters push their money into silver. The bankers sell paper silver and the price collapses – repeat and rinse. They want to do the same with natural gas.

    “They” are not commiting suicide, but they have quite literally talked the basquet of deplorables that they commander into wanting it with the clot-shot.
    The hybrid war by the anglozionist overlords to dismantle any achievement that they have allowed to develop on the european continent, which eastern europeans were once yearning to join, is reaching its climax. A kindergarden of wannabee-politicians is happily leading the country into the abyss, while any european nation with the tiniest remainder of survival instinct is deserting them.

    As a naif, I was taught that democratically elected representatives were to implement policies desired by the fully and fairly informed majority, whilst protecting the rights of any minorities, and I heard the expression “free markets.”

    Obviously, a ‘regulated’ market cannot be ‘free’ [unless the regulator is there only to enforce fully and fairly informed competition = no subsidies or imposed ‘external’ costs including taxation.]

    Next ‘obvious’ is that this article describes a situation at high variance with the above ‘ideals.’ In fact, the ‘NS2 operation’ is dominated by un- and anti-democratic, tyrannical rulers deploying various erring-ideologies. Here, I am not referring to Mr Putin or Russia, nor to Belarus, except that as targets of ZUSA regime-change schemes, they may be excused for reacting somewhat allergically to ZUSA/EU/D aggressions.

    ZUSA has no business interfering with NS2; IF they wish to sell their LNG into EU THEN let them do so on ‘a level playing field.’

    Neither Poland nor Ukraine has any business interfering with NS2; IF they wish to transit Russian gas into EU THEN let them do so at competitive prices, i.e. not to try to extract unearned fees over fair cost-plus [nor try to steal any gas on the way.]

    Neither the EU nor Germany [Greens as potential spoilers] have any business interfering with NS2; IF they wish to buy gas from anyone at all, THEN let them go to a truly free market, again on ‘a level playing field.’

    As an aside, the German Greens could probably ‘tolerate’ artificially increased gas prices as a way of attempting to cut fossil-carbon pollution, the other erring ideologies include the ‘ZUSA/Western’ neoliberal scams and German ‘Marktwissenschaft’ swindles.

    Any sort of artificial price above fair cost-plus will disadvantage the poorest in any market – so IF anyone is to freeze THEN it’s going to be those poorest. All the ‘unfair market manipulators’ will be nice & warm, sucking off the commonweal, as psychopathic parasites do.

    A classic symptom of terminal Leftism is when such governments begin to double-down on their own stupidity, and thereby reinforce their delusions even more. It is a devastating downward spiral where each iteration pushes the next even lower.

    It is terminal because no corrective action is possible. For that would entail the leaders of these governments to admit to being wrong and thus to relinquish their grip on power. Something that they are psychologically incapable of doing.

    The continuance of this socially pathological behavior is guaranteed by the definition of the personality profiles of those who govern in such regimes. There are no exceptions to this rule. For it is the physics of psychology.

    Therefore, such humans, by their own intractable nature, will blame everyone and everything but themselves for the failed outcomes of their policies. They will reason that failure is due to resistance against their policies. They will attempt to eliminate resistance by silencing anyone who opposes them and coerce everyone else into compliance with their delusions.

    Is this not the driving dynamic of today?

    Of course, nothing under these circumstances ever gets any better as a result. Circumstances always get worse until there is a general uprising or the system collapses under its own contradictions. But when populations are terrorized by their own leaders and in a constant state of fear, such regimes can last for generations. Such is the nature of totalitarianism.

    It is not complicated. The calculus is clear. The cancer of totalitarianism is metastasizing in Western Europe as we watch. Unmistakable tumors have emerged in North America. It is only a matter of time before the West dies as we have come to know it.

    The US threatened sactions against allseas, the swiss pipelaying company, who were forced to withdraw her ships from laying Nordstream II. Now Germany is shafting the Swiss again by withdrawing permits from Nord Stream 2 AG.

    It sure seems like every time the ZOG-US bitch slaps Germany, Germany turns around and bitch slaps Switzerland.

    Another point that Escobar misses here is that Germany is getting ready to lock down the “unvaccinated” the way Austria has, and Italy and France are already softening the battlefield for the next wave of restrictions against the “vaccine hesitant” with simultaneous predictive programming propaganda campaigns threatening lockdowns as well.

    Clearly the Judeo-globalists are planning a grand conjunction of all their anti-white pogroms. Simultaneous crisis of Global Warming, Bioweapons Plandemic, Refugee Invasion, Cold War, Hyperinflation, Food Shortages, and Energy shortages, are going to unite into a civilizational perfect storm against White European across the planet.

    Erdogan was stuck with huge refugee camps and no funds from Germany particularly to pay for them. UK paid more than entire EU to help costs of refugees in Lebanon and Turkey.

    EU is crass. Merkel invited people in 2015 – openly invited using videos etc – to attract people with promises of jobs and cars. She still has evening flights bringing them into Koln/Bonn airport.

    The whole thing is a charade. Belarus did not apparently even have a border with Poland judging by the barbed wire coils then have unfurled across fields……there is so much hype here.

    Euros won’t sign them because UK pioneered Spot Market pricing for Electricity and Gas and it benefits Traders. They got EU to copy this claiming it encourage Competition by outlawing long-term contracts which stultify the market.

    Since EU wanted to separate Post from Post Offices and Train Operating from Rails and infrastructure, the model continued. They already have Electricity Generators separated from Transmission with the real money being in transmission.

    UK started this with Breweries in 1980s by separating pub Ownership from Breweries – stupid policy – but it created same situation as in every other country – 2-3 large brewing groups owning all breweries and small brewers forced out of retail chains – als huge move to THT in supermarkets instead of pub consumption which was more profitable.

  46. Mefobills says:

    Atlantacism is Jewish in spirit. It is the evolved Jewish usury system.

    It was Jews who were the original inventors. A spiritual jew engages in all kinds of tricks to take sordid gain, especially usury.

    The East/West Caravan routes were the secret method of taking usury for thousands of years. Haibaru Donkey Caravaneers would take the exchange rate difference between Gold and Silver as they arbitraged the metal between east and west. This was the real religion and “energy” of the Jews, and few historians have figured it out.

    The proto Atlantacist system was run in the Mediterranean during the Levantine period (when Greece was ascendant). Jews set themselves up as intermediaries in entrepot cities ringing the Mediterranean. Solon’s reforms were a direct result of the usury taken out of Greece by the Merchant, especially due to silver debts stuck into the mouths of Greek farmers. Solon’s reforms were required because people started to starve and the land had polarized into Jewish hands.

    [MORE]

    If you wanted a slave, or wanted to launder pirated goods, then the (((merchant))) had family ties and his capital (usually silver) was available for international trade.

    Moving goods about by ship and controlling ports, rims, and also owning the money power got its first trial in the Mediterranean before (((our friends))) moved West to infect Amsterdam.

    After Ferdinand and Isabella kicked them out of Spain in 1492, something else happened that is erased from historical understanding. In 1497 Vasco De Gama discovered the Southern Route. This shipping route broke the Caravan route that the Haibaru formerly used to take usury on whole populations.

    Portugal soon took over the spice and metal money trade, and of course there were many Jews among the Portuguese. Sephardic Jews moved to Portugal in the subsequent 200 years, to then engage in their former practices, but now almost exclusively by merchant shipping. Spices, and precious metals were unloaded in Amsterdam. On the caravan routes, the unloading port was Constantinople. Jews moved from Spain to Portugal, to Amsterdam, to London – and hence followed their now Atlantacist trading patterns. The parasite jumped to America as they had finally won out by end of WW2.

    The gains of the revolutionary war were lost, as America fought on the wrong side in WW1,2.
    The big bang of Atlantacism in Amsterdam, which includes the invention of debt money (hypothecations) and stock market capital, and the first corporations happened in short succession.

    By 1694, the first debt spreading bank, the BOE, was installed in England, and the English lose their former natural hierarchy. The Kings actually become darker and more Sephardic as Jews marry into the system. England’s brain has been replaced by a (((Foreign Element))). The King system becomes a rump, an ornament – not real.

    Atlantacism has now been inserted into England, and from there the parasitic system can be exported around the world.

    Atlantacism and is child, Finance Capitalism, includes the formation of the first companies, which have a root word, corporeal – or men at arms. The first companies had charters and were short lived if they did not operate for the common weal. Today companies are perpetual and the only thing they care about is profit … which is very Jewish and very Atlantacist in thinking.

    People are only work units to be milked for profits, and profits are always marked as money prices.

    Judeo Christian Religion was invented and funded by Stock Market Capital, and this happened concurrent with the invention of the printing press.

    http://www.steinhardts.com/VIRTUALIB/manasseh2.html

    He (Manesseh Ben Israel) founded the earliest Hebrew printing press in Amsterdam (1626), where he published works in Hebrew, Spanish and Portuguese for the remainder of his life.

    Manesseh also printed works in English, with intention to dupe the English population.

    The Atlantacist method is Jewish system perfected. The founding of America was against this system, and Atlantacism caused the revolutionary war.

    The debt spreading bank BOE maneuvered King George, who then told the Colonials they could not use Colonial Script, and must pay gold/silver for Atlantic trade. This drained the Colonials of their circulating money, and caused a 10 year long depression. The depression was the cause of the war, not minor taxes. The stamp taxes and like were just an annoyance.

    Slavery (funded by finance capital from Jews out of Wall Street), the war of 1812 (Bank of England and other Mammonites trying to take over), Spanish American War (Malformed spiritual Jews trying to debt spread dollars and the Atlantacism behind Teddy Roosevelt’s White Fleet); WW1 (Jews and Usurers had installed the FED Reserve by sneaky means, and wanted a war for Atlantacism.

    The war was especially aimed at Germany who was a land power and had the temerity to build battleships.

    WW2 was Atlantacism again. Hitler had found a way to go around the Atlantacists; the western mammonites and jews were outraged as they could not take their pound of flesh.

    The takeover of Russia in the 90’s was the West trying to debt spread, and for (((foreign elites and oligarchs))) to dollarize the Russian economy, to turn Russians into debt slaves, to own Russian natural resources, to then extract and sell said resources on the “international free markets” where resources are moved about by ship of course. Russians and Slavs were to become white debt slaves, wandering in the land of their ancestors.

    The Germans got smashed the last time they tried to eject their parasites. Their body-politic might not be ready for the trials ahead, but the trials are coming. The parasite will consume Germany, inject foreign elements, indebt the people, and come to own real German resources. The historical people of Germany will be deracinated, and will becoming wandering strangers in the land of their ancestors.

    An overland tie-up with Russia is the medicine Germany needs to eject the Atlantacist parasite.

    The Jew might over-reach and cause Germans to freeze this winter, and that event might be enough to catalyze a Russian rapprochement and tie up with Russia.

    America, as long as it is parasitized by Atlantacist thinking is the enemy. The America of our founding has unfortunately become infected by the Jewish spirit.

    Bullshit. In Germany US service people are subject to German criminal code and there have not a few cases in which American soldiers were sent to German jail, which would never be the case if the Americnas were “occupying”Germany.

    Soilders…they are cannon fodder. Of course a low level soilder will be sent to jail. You think this can happen to anyone higher up in rank? Don’t be naive. Remember when the Germans wanted their 300 Tonnes of gold back from the US Gov? It took 5 years….I suppose it’s better than the 7 years the US Gov forecasted.

    Amen to that. But how likely that the Germans, who have been in the crosshairs of the Anglo-Zionist Empire since they achieved unification and proved themselves to be unbeatable commercial protagonists, are to undo the great mistakes of the two World Wars by truly allying themselves with Russia rather than have Germans and Russians, two of Europe’s bravest sons, shred each other on the battlefield for the benefit of the parasitical usurers. I guess it would take a revolution in Germany which has been so emasculated that the once proud, manly, battle hardened and chivalrous Germans are now exhibiting all the moral decay of the vanishing West by celebrating anal sex and miscegenation as a sign of moral emancipation. It is a long shot. But we hope that history will positively surprise us.

    Germany’s interests lie firmly within rising Asia, and Central and Eastern Europeans had better look East for resources and markets or they will suffer the inevitable decline of Atlanticism; however, with the current social decay afflicting those societies, the luxury of time cannot be taken for granted especially that the successor of Merkel will most likely exceed her crooked legacy.

    A nuclear Germany would be a greater existential threat to Israel
    than Iran (and to “Poland” than Russia). Why do you think they were never allowed to have nuclear recycling?
    Germany is surrounded by enemies (honorable exceptions: Austria and Switzerland).
    What´s more, that was the purpose of NATO and EU from the beginning.
    They pay hefty pensions to 20 million holocaust survivors, in addition to a tribute in submarines for the Samson Option. They pay through their noses for the fiscally incontinent halfricans on the European periphery, only to get protested against at every corner.
    They pay not only for their occupation, but for forces stationed in neighboring countries to threaten them, further for command headquarters, drone operations and logistics hub for the scourge of half the Earth.
    They pay for foreign policy regularly against their interests (esp. re: Russia).
    This includes the warm bodies of their yoof – the most recent not-funny incident
    was US death squads in Afghanistan donning German uniforms
    “to reduce their casualties”, effectively unloading the casualties on the Germans
    and laying waste to their civic programs (that weren´t intoxicating but
    at least somewhat working). With “allies” false-flagging you for fun, how bad can the Russians possibly be? NS2 is just the extension of these policies.

They will be happy when the poor freeze in their flimsy postwar apartments because of the gas price, it’s good for the climate, you know, good for human rights (violations of which only interest the Greens when they occur in the Russian sphere of influence) and it doesn’t hurt them and their voters personally, they are rich and/or live in new (expensive) low-energy housing that uses other types of fuel.

    Do you know where those refugees come from and what has been their ordeal. I bet Russia would be happy to have them as citizens to help them populate their large territory. So why are they heading toward Western Europe?

    As to the origin of the political crisis, I would rather look for an an NGO operation coordinated over the Internet with the help of operatives associated to the US state department. The usual objective is to create chaos and to divide Eastern Europe. That would be typical US foreign policy in action. That is cynical to the extreme of the US and affiliates to play political games out of of the suffering of those homeless people.

    NATO went to war in Afghanistan; now they get refugees as an expected outcome. That shouldn’t come as a surprise. This refugee crisis is rather a sign of how poorly managed Europe actually is. As if Europe is doomed as a political entity.

  111. Rest-Germany underlies foreign militäry rule.
    Rest-Germany is militarily occupied territory.
    The underlying law(lessness) in the “Federal Republic of Germany” is a construct of the Allied looters aka SHAEF. A republic always means rule of the chosen ones; just like democracy – “representative democracy”.

    Occupation law stands as an independent legal system above and alongside German law.
    On the one hand, it addresses those subject to the occupation, i.e. the German authorities, and in part also directly the individual German citizens. On the other hand, it delimits the rights and duties of the occupying authorities, albeit often in very blurred outlines and incompletely.
    from: VON SCHMOLLER/MAIER/TOBLER, Handbook of Occupation Law, JBC MOHR (Paul SIEBECK). 

    [MORE]

    Supreme Headquarters Allied Expeditionary Force, aka SHAEF:
    Here is no repeal of the SHAEF laws, not even by treaty provisions in the course of German partial unification. With reference to the lack of a peace treaty with the German Reich, the continuation of the foreign occupation status can be deduced in connection with the Berlin Declaration of the Four Powers, which remains in force with respect to Berlin and Germany as a whole. Russia too is still part of the game in Berlin. Russia still entertains 2 military outlets in Berlin. For many years Russia did not allow the opening of a new Berlin Airport. It got covered by the stoogies with fake stories of construction problems in order to not make the new “Germans” suspicious.

    Article IV of SHAEF – Proclamation No. 1
    At this signing of the treaty the German Reich as a whole was seized by the USA as the main victorious power! The confiscation came into force on 09.05.1945.
    SHAEF – Law No. 52, Article 1, § 1, and the national emblem.

    By becoming legally effective of the SHAEF-laws with the surrender declaration of the German Wehrmacht on 08.05.1945 in Berlin-Karlshorst, these laws are valid in the whole of Germany in the borders of 31.12.1937 (see also article 116 Abs.1 Grundgesetz – “Basic Law”)

    American right of control from 20.06.1948 and law No. 53
    (New version) of the Military Government – Germany, American right of control of 19.09.1949 after invokement of the previously commissioned and supervised Basic Law.

    Under current international law (“Hague Land Warfare Regulations” of 1907, Art. 43, [RGBl. 1910]), a “Basic Law” is a “provisional measure for the maintenance of peace and order in a militarily occupied territory for a specified period of time.” In this context, the laws in force until then in an occupied territory are included only to the extent that it suits the victorious powers.

    The given Basic Law “GG” under international law, basically a law for the maintenance of peace and order in a militarily occupied territory for a certain time and not a constitution elected by the people.
    Therefore, the GG was not a constitution elected in free self-determination and in Berlin, as well as in Greater Berlin, in Bavaria, in the Soviet Occupied Zone and in the remaining areas of the German Reich under foreign administration because of refusal of acceptance anyway without any validity.
    Proof: Point 6 of the preamble to the Convention on the Settlement of Certain Questions Concerning Berlin of 25.09.1990 (BGBl 1990, Part II, pp. 1274 ff.)

    Basic Law Article 146 [Period of validity]: This Basic Law, which shall apply to the entire German people after the completion of the unity and freedom of Germany, shall cease to be valid on the day on which a constitution comes into force which has been freely decided upon by the German people.

    Rest-Germany was and remains militarily foreign occupied territory.
    The weird thing is, that the main perpetraitor, the JewSA itself also appears like militarily occupied territory.
    The plandemic is proof that by now they (“they neighbours” you shall love) have got the whole world under the thumb. Jewtin the Putina seems also somehow playing along with the Sixth Jewish World War against mankind, white mankind in particular.

    Can’t speak for another person, but IMO the lunacy is not the awareness of the graveness of our situation, as you put it—obviously, that is not lunacy—but the failure to describe the problem correctly, and the hence the unrealistic solutions proposed. These promise that we can keep going as now while aiming for zero carbon—the whole show will be powered by renewable energy. This flies in the face of physics and reality.

    As many scientists have pointed out, at the current time, renewables are not “green,” from any point of view other than that they seem to reduce CO2 emission. As more and more habitats are destroyed to accommodate the space requirements of diffuse and intermittent energy sources such as wind and sunlight.

    That failure to take account of physics and to put it to the world’s people straight is the lunacy. There are very few locations (Iceland is one of them) where solar and wind arrays to generate “renewable” energy are NOT wreaking havoc on ecosystems and their resources that the earth will need for species, including humans, to adapt if they are to survive.

    Germany’s interest is the interest of a major exporter of advanced manufactured goods.

    Following this line, the EU has been great for Germany and still is. The Euro gives them a competitive currency (weighed down as it is by permanent deficit Southern Europe). If Germany still had to operate in D Marks (valued on German economic performance alone) their exports would soon become uncompetitive. Also the EU guarantees them tariff free access to the whole of Europe and easy access to the essential cheap and skilled labour of Eastern Europe (who’s incorporation into the EU they pushed for).

    Conclusion that the EU looks almost purposely designed to further German economic interests.

If the Germans of today are not aware that Germany was the leading scientific and technological power in the world with more Nobel Prizes than any other country in the world until they were surpassed in Nobel Prizes sometime after WW II then they can’t see just how far they have fallen.

Though there is a hidden problem with the Euro as the ECB is bearing the risk of default by weaker European economies like Italy which can delay their eventual financial bankruptcy caused by higher import debits then export credits known as trade deficits as well as their mostly shaky banks which are kept on life support by having the ECB approve their transfers in inter-European trade.

This was a simple exhibit of the true German spirit that has been sapped over the last 76 years by the story of the holohoax and all political parties of Germany, including the AFD, are still unable to break from the stifling chains of this oppressive story. The true German spirit that excelled in other fields like arts and philosophy is a giant kept in a cage until a truly new world order puts to rest the nefarious influence of the Anglo Zionist Empire.

Ukrainian volunteers were crushing them, and Russia was able to stop it only by introducing their own troops – airborne troops, among the best they have, and they were not able to hold the land area the so called rebels took. The Russians now hold half of what they originally took. There is still a steady flow of “cargo 200” back to Putin’s Soviet motherland.

    You can whine about Bandera as much as you like. Bandera is someone you lie about regularly, but the man simply wanted his country out from under the Soviet, Stalin’s, thumb.

    It begs the question: what is better, to have an evil government, or a braindead government?

    “Spare us the humanitarian tears of Putin, please.”

    Yes, but I bet Putin (and others) think the same about the humanitarian tears cried in the West about human rights violations in Russia and elsewhere.

    Is he wrong? who caused this refuge crisis in the Middle East? Poland was very much in the coalition of the willing, and their motives were entirely self-serving, with the usual anti-Russian drift. Germany was openly against the Iraq war but collaborated much more than Poland or any other of the pro-invasion EU states (8). Many countries only issued a letter of support, or permission for US military planes to enter their airspace. Without German clandestine permission of the same the war would have been impossible. The Ramstein base in Germany was at the very center of the US war effort, among other bases and harbours in Germany.

    Could Germany have said no to the US?

    Merkel has been slammed for publishing a letter of support of the Iraq war, in 2003, in the NYT. It was highly unusual for an opposition leader to openly go against government policy this way. In Germany she called Chancellor Schroeder’s anti-war stance a “shameless betrayal of the voters”. Schroeder was running for reelection and would have lost had he been openly for the Iraq invasion. The public had learned the lesson from the bombing of Serbia which increased rather than stpped ethnic tensions and inter-ethnic violence, and caused a major wave of refugees.

    Then the same thing happened again. And again.

    And Kosovo, once again, is a mess. The war launched by the Clinton admin, dragging along a reluctant Germany into their first war since WW 2, and the first war in Europe since then, was no victory of democracy, it did not stop “another Holocaust”, it only succeeded in tearing up and away a long-term ally – Yugoslavia – from Russia. It was the beginning of the end of any hope for a stable, prosperous, democratic and peaceful post-war Europe

    The roots of the Greens in Germany are very brown. National Socialism was very green. No need to trace the Greens to some Fabian society in the UK

    For those of you who don’t read German, there is an excellent English book written by an American scholar , John Gimbel, who served with the US military gov in post-war Germany.

    Matthias Erzberger!
    No need for truth?!

    “Very brown” and “very green”; brown + green = black. Erzberger.

    “The Greens” have nothing in common with National Socialism. Nada.
    Evidence: They hate nature and prefer the big smoke. Man (GerMan) is what they hate most.
    They are Antifa; i.e. Judah’s bolshevic project in form of „the march through the instituions“.

    Well Hias,
    I actually do not like “to reply” but stand alone.
    But you are provoking it (for the sake of truth and justice?!).

    Let me call justice for Germans because “Germany” does not exist in these times.

    Everything Erzberger says (here in regard to Nato’s wheelings & deailings) needs to be in perspective of a butchered, occupied, completely foreign (Jews & Allied hyanas) controlled, with the help of traitors like Schroeder & Jew Ferkel, exploited “Germany”; common German people are 3rd class citizens in their homelands. Thank you.

    I also remember very well Schröder’s No to the Iraq invasion and how he crawled only 2 weeks later to the Afghanistan invasion; he could not stand the violence and threats of the JewS, then especially the Republicans. That is when Schroeder could have made a meaningful stance for once and canceled Nato and asked „the Americans“ (the Jews) to leave. He is a twisted nothing. Schrott & his Joschka’s crimes against the peoples of Yugoslavia are „amazing“ to this day. Schrott, Fischer and each agreeing parlamentarian belong into lifelong jail and their wealth (including family sickerings) should be handed over to damaged Serbians…

    Why do 350 mio Americans need to protect 450 mio Europeans from 150 mio Russians?

    Maybe what you say is true but those in charge of Germany now want to make it easier for non Germans to get citizenship. A 3 year wait. So Germany will become more non German faster. Germany desperately needs another Hitler.

    Ultimately, Hitler didn’t believe in race, and once even said so. The point was ethnic allegiance, and forging a master race out of the best elements available

    What you write is complete bull,you don’t even get the chronology right – the Afghan war came after the Iraq invasion?

    You also don’t have a clue about Germany. You are fixated on the Reich – a brief period in German history. Even 1871 – the unification of the Reich – is exceptional wrt German history before and after. Before, Germans lived in rivalling tribes or states, and multiethnic European empires, and rarely ever agreed on anything, often fighting against each other, and more or less subject to having to submit to more powerful geopolitical actors. That’s what we always were, and are again. Nothing new here at all, we just went back in 45 to what we have always been

    A chinaman loving black baboo of Bengal spewing invectives against his betters. Know you not that the only way to scale up on the caste ladder from the lowly rung of untouchability is to join in the fight against your true oppressors, the commies of China and join the enlightened? Or do you aspire to be a coolie in the Forbidden City, varlet?
