The EU’s Architects: Nazis and Nazi Collaborators

Hits: 321

There is an old adage that pertains to the founding of the European Union «If at first you don’t succeed, try, try, again». And for the Nazis and Nazi collaborators of the Second World War, viewing the post-war European death and destruction brought about by Adolf Hitler and his «Third Reich» alliance of Italian fascists, French Vichy, and others, the immediate decision was to «try again» with a European Union that would establish the same European super-state envisaged by Hitler but with a decidedly «democratic» aura.

What eventually became the EU, the European Coal and Steel Community, was formed by six Western European countries in 1951. The organization was the brainchild of Robert Schuman, a French politician who swore allegiance to Marshal Philippe Petain, the French Vichy leader and ally of the mustachioed German ex-corporal. Schuman was later stripped of his political rights for his collaboration with the hated German bosche. However, Free French commander, General Charles De Gaulle, restored Schuman’s full citizenship, after which the old Vichy collaborator set about to create a modified version of the Third Reich, the European Union. And to complement his «Fourth Reich-Lite», Schuman advocated a military alliance to give it muscle. It was the North Atlantic Treaty Organization (NATO). Schuman served as a post-war French foreign and prime minister. Schuman’s collaborators in his plan to create a federal Europe were fellow Frenchman and OSS/CIA asset Jean Monnet and German chancellor Konrad Adenauer, who, as pre-war mayor of Cologne and president of the Prussian State Council, provided the Nazis with various perks, including the right to fly Nazi flags from Cologne city flagpoles.

Another founding father of the EU was Walter Hallstein, a German lawyer who belonged to a number of Nazi professional groups and who fought as a lieutenant in a Wehrmacht artillery regiment in northern France, Hallstein was captured by the Americans and served out the remaining of the war in a prisoner-of-war camp in Mississippi. Western history books and the always-dubious Wikipedia, have whitewashed the Nazi credentials of EU founders like Schuman, Adenauer, and Hallstein.

Another supporter of the embryonic supporter of a federal Europe in the early 1950s was Prince Bernhard of Lippe-Biesterfeld in Germany and later of the Netherlands. Before marrying Crown Princess Juliana of the Netherlands, Bernhard was a Nazi Party member in Germany and an officer of the Reiter (Mounted Corps) of the SS. He was also a member of the Nazi Motor Corps. In 1940, Bernhard’s old pals at I.G. Farben, the German petro-chemical company, along with SS chief Heinrich Himmler, were lobbying Hitler for a common European currency, the precursor of today’s euro. After the war, Bernhard enthusiastically supported the creation of a European Union. To shepherd plans for the future union through European nations, in 1954, Bernhard sponsored the first meeting of European federalists and their Euro-Atlanticist NATO allies at the Bilderberg Hotel in the Netherlands.

The annual Bilderberg conference has, since 1954, promoted a federal Europe and more general globalization. However, like Adolf Hitler’s plans for a united Europe and a world under Axis domination, the Bilderberg plans and those of their EU colleagues come at the expense of national sovereignty, cultural rights, freedom of expression and freedom of thought, and workers’ rights. The Bilderberg conference also echoed the wishes and desires of NATO and the US Central Intelligence Agency, which were always certain to seed the annual conferences with their top assets. Plans to incorporate Eastern Europe into the EU were first designed in 1954 by Bernhard’s Bilderberg conference co-founder Jozef Retinger, a member of the wartime Polish government-in-exile in London. After the war, Retinger became a leading champion for a united Europe. Retinger’s agenda was so suspect by the Polish Home Army, the wartime Polish underground resistance, the resistance army tried to assassinate him during his secret visit to Poland.

It is truly amazing to see so many «progressives» have lamented the United Kingdom’s recent vote to leave the EU, an organization that was founded by Nazi collaborators and CIA agents-of-influence. EU officials like European Commission President Jean-Claude Juncker of Luxembourg – the original homeland of Robert Schuman, European Parliament President Martin Schulz of Germany, and other Euro-federalists have invoked the old Nazi policy of «collective punishment» in urging draconian measures being taken by the EU against the withdrawing British. The EU has even signaled that English will no longer be an official EU language, even though it remains the most widely-used lingua franca of EU member states Malta, Ireland, and Cyprus.

The EU, especially since the Maastricht Treaty, which led the groundwork for a more federalized Europe, has never been very democratic about its European «super-state». An ignorant and detached bureaucracy of Brussels «Eurocrats» has dictated to French bakers how to make baguettes, Greek dairy farmers how to make feta cheese, and German brewers how to make beer.

Those who defend the EU’s «Euro-mess» claim that the UK’s Brexit vote is unprecedented. The argument is another fallacy. The UK is the third country to signal within the EU a desire to withdraw from the organization created to enable a kinder and gentler European Fourth Reich.

Greenland voted twice to leave the EU. The first vote was when Denmark, its colonial master, joined the EU in 1973. When Greenland achieved home rule status in 1979, it held another referendum and the outcome was the same: a flat no to EU membership. The lesson of Greenland was not lost on Iceland, which, after its economic rape by Europhile bankers, opted against joining the EU.

In 2015, Greece voted by more than 60 percent to reject the terms laid forth by the EU for continued Greek membership in the eurozone. The referendum was a de facto rejection of the EU, which warned Greece that if it rejected the austerity terms for continued inclusion in the eurozone, it was tantamount to a withdrawal from the inner circle of the EU. The ersatz leftist SYRIZA party, created by provocateur hedge fund tycoon George Soros as a controlled alternative to his hated Communists, set about to accept the EU’s draconian economic terms anyway.

Today, with Germany in the driver’s seat and Belgium, Finland, the Baltic states, Romania, Bulgaria, and Poland as obedient poodles for the Germans, the EU resembles the Third Reich’s Axis alliance. The EU is an accomplice of NATO in militarily threatening Russia. NATO’s military aggressiveness in the joint neo-Nazi and Zionist Ukraine dusts off the old plan of Hitler for the invasion of Soviet Russia – Operation Barbarossa. There is nothing odd or unique about the alliance of neo-Nazis and Zionists in Kiev and their support by Germany and the United States. It has all happened before in 1933 with the Transfer Agreement between Nazi Germany and the Zionists of Germany, an agreement that guaranteed unfettered German Zionist immigration to Palestine, an act that laid the groundwork for the later State of Israel. Meanwhile, the Nazis were free to concern themselves with conquering Eastern Europe and the Soviet Union before calling on its Zionist German friends in Palestine to help defeat the British mandate authorities.

Anti-EU political leaders in Denmark, the Netherlands, France, Spain, Greece, Italy, Portugal, Austria, Sweden, Hungary, and even Germany understand who founded the EU and why. Calls for additional exit referenda can only mean that the days of the Schuman-Monnet-Adenauer «Fourth Reich Lite» are coming to a fast end.

Americans Pay Price for Criminal Wars From Mass Shootings at Home
America’s horrendous gun violence can be attributed to many factors, but there is one factor that is hardly talked about or explored in public discourse – the apparent link between mass shootings and the rampant culture of US militarism.Mass shootings in the US – involving four or more persons – occur on an almost daily basis. The most recent major atrocity was in Virginia Beach last month in which 12 people were killed. The shooter was reportedly a military veteran.Turns out that US military veterans are disproportionately responsible for violent gun deaths among American civilians.

Why Trump is Wrong About North Korea
When I think about North Korea, what first comes to my mind is a mist over the calm and majestic surface of the Taedong River near Pyongyang. Next I always recall two lovers, locked in a tender and almost desperate embrace, sitting side by side on the shore. I saw them every day, while taking brisk walks at dawn. Now I don’t know for sure whether they were real or just a product of my fantasy; a sad and gentle reminder of all that has been already lost, as well as of all that should have happened but never really ...

The 1967 Obsession, Trump and Trivia
I arrived in Jerusalem last night and as always during the weeks between mid-May and mid-June the media is full of romanticized memories. Within these weeks are the two most siginicfant dates in modern Palestinian history: May 1948 when Palestine was conquered and renamed Israel, and June, 1967 when the Israeli army completed the conquest of Palestine by taking East Jerusalem, the West Bank and the Gaza Strip. For Palestinians these dates bring back bitter memories, but for Israelis the memories are sweet – those were the days when we were young and brave and innocent.  Vintage photos of soldiers at the newly conquered ...

Politics is Above Common Sense in Latvia
The painful issue of using Russian language in Latvia appears on the agenda once again. Ethnic Russians “knock at the doors” of international organisation trying to defend their rights to speak and get education in their native language. Their hope for understanding in Latvia is melting every day. It has become known that Russian Community in Latvia sent a letter to Council of Europe about violation of human rights. The message addressed to Secretary General Thorbjorn Jagland also calls for a request from the Venice Commission to amend the two Latvian language laws which were adopted by the Saeima in spring.

The Idea of a Greater Croatia by Pavao Ritter Vitezović (II)
Part I The political purpose of Vitezović’s writings The ultimate political purpose of P. R. Vitezović’s works, based on his ideological construction, was of a triple nature. First of all, he tried to refute the Venetian claims on the territory of Dalmatia, the Istrian Peninsula, the Dalmatian Islands and Boka Kotorska (Cattaro Gulf in present-day Montenegro) that rose during the Great Vienna War 1683–1699 in which the Republic of St. Marco successfully fought the Ottoman Sultanate in a coalition with the Habsburg Empire [Banac 1984, 73]. The war clearly marked the beginning of the irreversible decline of the Ottoman power which consequently opened ...

Orwell at the UN: Obama Re-Defines Democracy as a Country that Supports U.S. Policy
In his Orwellian September 28, 2015 speech to the United Nations, President Obama said that if democracy had existed in Syria, there never would have been a revolt against Assad. By that, he meant ISIL. Where there is democracy, he said, there is no violence or revolution. This was his threat to promote revolution, coups and violence against any country not deemed a “democracy.” In making this hardly-veiled threat, he redefined the word in the vocabulary of international politics. Democracy is the CIA’s overthrow of Mossedegh in Iran to install the Shah. Democracy is the overthrow of Afghanistan’s secular government by ...

Europe’s Forgotten ‘Hitler’ Killed over 10 Million Africans
Most people have no idea of who is pictured above, but you should. The sight of this man should cause a similar revulsion to that of seeing Mussolini, Mao, Stalin or Hitler, as he committed an African genocide that resulted in the killing of over 10 million people in the Congo. His name is King Leopold II of Belgium. Most of the people never learned about him in school, and have also most likely never heard about him in the media either. This is because he’s not included in the popular narrative of oppression (which includes things like U.S. slavery and the ...

NATO Intensifies its Preparations for War with Russia
Against the backdrop of US aggression against North Korea, NATO is intensifying its preparations for war with Russia, the world’s second largest nuclear power. A report in the German news magazine Der Spiegel (Issue 43/2017) based on a secret NATO document indicates how far plans for war have progressed. The news magazine concludes: “In plain language: NATO is preparing for a possible war with Russia.” In the document entitled “Progress report on the Alliance’s Enhanced Deterrence and Defence Disposition,” leading military figures call for a major boost to military capabilities in order to conduct a so-called “Major Joint Operation Plus.” The ...

The 1929 Lateran Treaty: B. Mussolini’s Faith-Based Initiative
This Wednesday, February 11 [2009], will mark the 80th anniversary of the signing of the Lateran Treaty and related agreements, in which Benito Mussolini’s Italy recognized the Vatican as an independent state and showered it with money and other benefits. Mussolini got what he paid for. For well over a thousand years prior to 1929, Popes exercised absolute civil authority over central Italy, a region known as the “Papal States.” Their power was based on a document called the “Donation of Constantine,” in which the 4th century Roman emperor Constantine was supposed to have granted the successors of St. Peter control ...

The 2001 War on Afghanistan is a Profit Driven “Resource War”
Author’s Note US and NATO forces invaded Afghanistan more than 16 years ago in October 2001. It’s has been a continuous war marked by US military occupation. The justification is “counterterrorism”.  Afghanistan is defined as a state sponsor of terrorism, allegedly responsible for attacking America on September 11, 2001.  The war on Afghanistan continues to be heralded as a war of retribution in response to the 9/11 attacks. US troops are still present and deployed in Afghanistan. The legal argument used by Washington and NATO to invade and occupy Afghanistan under “the doctrine of collective security” was that the September 11 2001 attacks constituted an ...

Ukraine’s State-Sponsored “Azov Battalion” Expands Use of Nazi-Inspired Symbols
On September 22, Ukraine’s Azov Battalion had a ceremony honoring its fighters who were killed in combat in eastern Ukraine’s Donbass regions. It is natural for any military unit to honor its dead. But it is evident from the images on Azov’s own website that this ceremony used iconography that is disturbingly reminiscent of the 1930s Nuremberg rallies, including the use of searchlights, the banners with Waffen-SS stylized logos and the flames. The background of Azov, its leadership, its recruitment and emblems are all deeply disturbing. It grew out of the Social-National Assembly of Ukraine (S.N.A.), a group of far right and neo-Nazi organizations ...
