World War II resulted in Europe being conquered,
not by Berlin but by Washington.
conquest was certain but not all at once.
Washington’s conquest of Europe resulted from the
Marshall Plan, from fears of Stalin’s Red Army that
caused Europe to rely on Washington’s protection and
to subordinate Europe’s militaries to Washington in
NATO, from the replacement of the British pound as
world reserve currency with the US dollar, and from
the long process of the subordination of the
sovereignty of individual European countries to the
European Union, a CIA initiative implemented by
Washington in order to control all of Europe by
controlling only one unaccountable government.
(TRADUZIONE: L'EUROPA E' CONDANNATA DAL VASSALLAGGIO A WASHINGTON?)
exceptions, principally the UK, membership in the EU
also meant loss of financial independence. As only
the European Central Bank, an EU institution, can
create euros, those countries so foolish as to
accept the euro as their currency no longer have the
power to create their own money in order to finance
countries that joined the euro must rely on private
banks to finance their deficits. The result of this
is that over-indebted countries can no longer pay
their debts by creating money or expect their debts
to be written down to levels that they can service.
Instead, Greece, Portugal, Latvia, and Ireland were
looted by the private banks.
forced the pseudo-governments of these countries to
pay the northern European private banks by
suppressing the living standards of their
populations and by privatizing public assets at
pennies on the dollar. Thus retirement pensions,
public employment, education and health services
have been cut and the money redirected to private
banks. Municipal water companies have been
privatized with the result being higher water bills.
And so on.
As there is
no reward, only punishment, for being a member of
the EU, why did governments, despite the expressed
wishes of their peoples, join?
is that Washington would have it no other way. The
European founders of the EU are mythical creatures.
Washington used politicians that Washington
controlled to create the EU.
years ago CIA documents proving that the EU was a
CIA initiative were released. See:
1970s my Ph.D. dissertation chairman, then a very
high-ranking official in Washington with control
over international security affairs, asked me to
undertake a sensitive mission abroad. I refused.
Nevertheless, he answered my question: “How does
Washington get foreign countries to do what
said. “We give their leaders bagfuls of money. They
belong to us.”
is clear that the EU serves the interests of
Washington, not the interests of Europe. For
example, the French people and government are
opposed to GMOs, but the EU permits a “precautionary
market authorization” of GMO introduction, relying
perhaps on the “scientific findings” of the
scientists on Monsanto’s payroll. When the US state
of Vermont passed a law requiring labeling of GMO
foods, Monsanto sued the state of Vermont. Once the
paid-off EU officials sign the TTIP agreement
written by US global corporations, Monsanto will
take over European agriculture.
danger to Europe goes far beyond the health of
European peoples who will be forced to dine on
poisonous foods. Washington is using the EU to force
Europeans into conflict with Russia, a powerful
nuclear power capable of destroying all of Europe
and all of the United States in a few minutes.
happening because the paid-off with “bagfuls of
money” European “leaders” had rather have
Washington’s money in the short-run than for
Europeans to live in the long-run.
It is not
possible that any European politician is
sufficiently moronic to believe that Russia invaded
Ukraine, that Russia any moment will invade Poland
and the Baltic states, or that Putin is a “new
Hitler” scheming to reconstruct the Soviet Empire.
These absurd allegations are nothing but Washington
propaganda devoid entirely of truth. Washington’s
propaganda is completely transparent. Not even an
idiot could believe it.
Yet the EU
goes along with the propaganda, as does NATO.
answer is Washington’s money. The EU and NATO are
utterly corrupt. They are Washington’s well paid
way Europeans can prevent a nuclear World War III
and continue to live and to enjoy what remains of
their culture that the Americans have not destroyed
with America’s culture of sex and violence and
greed, is for the European governments to follow the
lead of the English and exit the CIA-created
European Union. And exit NATO, the purpose of which
evaporated with the collapse of the Soviet Union,
and which is now being used as an instrument of
Washington’s World Hegemony.
Europeans want to die for Washington’s world
hegemony? That means Europeans are dying for
Washington’s hegemony over Europe as well.
Europeans want to support Washington when
Washington’s high officials, such as Victoria Nuland,
say “***** the EU.”
are already suffering from the economic sanctions
that their overlord in Washington forced them to
apply to Russia and Iran. Why do Europeans want to
be destroyed by war with Russia? Do Europeans have a
death wish? Have Europeans been Americanized and no
longer appreciate the historic accumulation of
artistic and architectural beauty, literature and
music achievements of which their countries are
is that it makes no difference whatsoever what
Europeans think, because Washington has set up a
government for them that is totally independent of
their wishes. The EU government is accountable only
to Washington’s money. A few people capable of
issuing edicts are on Washington’s payroll. The
entire peoples of Europe are Washington’s serfs.
if Europeans remain the gullible, insouciant, and
stupid peoples that they currently are, they are
doomed, along with the rest of us.
other hand, if the European peoples can come to
their senses, free themselves from The Matrix that
Washington has imposed on them, and revolt against
Washington’s agents who control them, the European
peoples can save their own lives and the lives of
the rest of us.
