Germany’s Deep State is located in Washington, NOT Berlin
Europeans are suffering vastly higher costs now for energy — the foundation of ANY nation’s economy — and do so because of the primary and secondary sanctions that America’s Government demanded, and that Europe’s Governments copy and comply with, which sanctions strangle what had previously been, by far, the cheapest and the most-abundant energy-sources for Europeans, which had been pipelined-into Europe from Russia. Furthermore: on 26 September 2022, the two biggest pipelines to bring energy into Europe, Nord Stream 1 and 2, both were brazenly blown up — pretty much dooming Europe. At 12:41 EDT, on 29 October 2022, the Daily Mail headlined “Liz Truss's personal phone that was hacked by Kremlin agents was so compromised it was locked away in a ‘secure location’ as experts fear top secret negotiations and private messages may have been leaked”. The Daily Mail reported there that “The hack was discovered during the summer’s Tory leadership campaign, when Ms Truss was Foreign Secretary, but the details were suppressed by Boris Johnson, who was Prime Minister at the time, and the Cabinet Secretary, Simon Case”; so: her phone definitely WAS hacked, which adds credibility to the professional hacker Kim Dotcom’s allegation published independently in a tweet at “11:11 AM · Oct 30, 2022”: “@trussliz [UK’s Foreign Minister] used her iPhone to send a message to @SecBlinken [U.S.’s SecState] saying ‘It’s done’ a minute after the pipeline [they didn’t yet know that it was both of them] blew up and before anybody else knew.” Kim Dotcom might have been the hacker of Truss’a phone, but he refused to say whether he was. Russia’s Government had said immediately on September 26th that the blowing-up of their two pipelines was “sabotage” and that they were determined to find out who did it. U.S.-and-allied public officials and ‘news’-media (including the Daily Mail in that October 29th headline) however, consistently alleged immediately on September 27th and thereafter (and without alleging ANY evidence — not even unsourced evidence) that this sabotage of Europe’s energy-supplies had been done by the main owner of those pipelines, which was Russia. Whoever destroyed those pipelines caused billions of dollars of damage to Russia, and maybe even more damage than that to Europe. But it causes huge benefits for American energy-producers, to replace Europe’s forgone energy-supplies from Russia. The likeliest hypothesis (if Kim Dotcom didn’t post that tweet in response only to the Daily Mail’s news-report of the prior day) is that President Biden (perhaps through his SecState Blinken) had gotten Boris Johnson (perhaps through his ForSec Truss) to order the blow-ups. Certainly, Germany, a co-owner of those pipelines, has been stunningly (if not shockingly) unconcerned about investigating the matter.
A vassal-nation in (or “colony” of) an imperial power (which in today’s world MEANS ONLY America — since that is the only remaining empire) does NOT have sovereignty. Instead, that nation’s foreign policies can be, and are, ONLY what that imperial power allows, and NOTHING ELSE. This is DEFINITELY the case with today’s Germany.
Germany is being deindustrialized despite (not because of) what Germany’s industrialists and investors want; and this is because the billionaires who want this are in the imperial country, America, whose billionaires control the U.S. Government, and they are benefitting enormously from the doubling of oil exports, and from the fact that “The U.S. has the recoverable resources necessary to single-handedly double the global LNG market,” and also from the soaring exodus of Germany’s manufacturing into America, which exodus to America is being subsidized, financed, by all U.S, taxpayers. This is one of the final stages of their empire’s exploitation of its vassal nations. These are some of the many ways in which America’s super-rich, its aristcracy, are devouring now even the head, the aristocracy, of the given vassal-nation (in this case, Germany). And not only do all Germans suffer from it, but the vast majority of Americans also do, because the only results for us are higher inflation — and we can’t eat the weapons that the U.S. Government is sending to Ukraine in order to carry out “regime-change in Moscow.” It’s all being done for America’s billionaires.
History is full of examples of imperial nations that first worked with the aristocracies of their vassal-nations but then increasingly devoured and ultimately destroyed even their cooperating vassal-aristocracies — and even their own nation’s public. In fact, it’s normal in the final stage of all empires. This is an act of desperation by and on behalf of America’s billionaires who are grasping at their last opportunity to continue, for a while longer, their imperial collective enterprise, before it fades forever into history’s dustbin.
On December 11th, Alex Christoforou and Alexander Mercouris of The Duran (two remarkably insightful commentators on international relations) headlined their 24-minute video discussion, “German coup targets political opposition. Merkel’s disastrous legacy”, and interpreted the alleged recent coup attempt in Germany as being instead “the German Government is trying to find ways to take out Die Linke and AdF” which are the only two German Parties that DON’T back the German Government’s strong support for the U.S. Government’s efforts to defeat Russia’s Government in the battlefields of Ukraine. Both of the discussants acknowledged that it’s a proxy war between U.S. and Russia, which uses Ukrainian and other U.S.-armed-and-trained soldiers there in order to score a win for U.S. and a defeat for Russia — aiming to produce in Russia the overthrow of its Government: yet another (and the biggest-ever) U.S. vassal-nation. However, at 10:43 in their discussion is the question, from Christoforou, “Does that [asserted coup-attempt] signal some sort of U.S. Deep State involvement in shaping the media narrative for this story?” and possibly that “someone in the United States is involved in driving the whole thing?” That question, however, is a wrong or even misleading one to raise, because it pretends that Germany’s Government ISN’T actually a vassal of America’s Government — which it unquestionably IS. Germany’s Government won’t do what America’s Government won’t ALLOW it to do. Any political Party in Germany that raises any serious QUESTION about Germany’s slavish adherence to America’s foreign policies (as Die Linke and AfD do) will be marginalized, on behalf of, and as an expression of, the U.S. Government’s control over Germany’s foreign policies. The two discussants there are using such phrases as (from Mercouris, at 1:25) “This is going to be leveraged and used by the German ruling elite to clamp down on society. I think that’s the one outcome that’s going to be a definite.” But that “ruling elite” is actually headquartered in Washington DC, not in Berlin Germany. Consequently, too, Christaforou’s wondering whether there has been “some sort of U.S. Deep State involvement in shaping the media narrative for this story” is like asking whether Germany is in Europe.
The most important thing to know about Germany and any other Government that is a vassal in the U.S. empire is that it IS a vassal in the U.S. empire. A vassal-nation in (or “colony” of) an imperial power (which in today’s world MEANS ONLY America — since that is the only remaining empire) does NOT have sovereignty. Instead, that nation’s foreign policies can be, and are, ONLY what that imperial power allows, and NOTHING ELSE. This is DEFINITELY the case with today’s Germany.
So, when, at 10:43 in the discussion, Christoforou wondered “Does that signal some sort of U.S. Deep State involvement in shaping the media narrative for the story? I don't know.” Mercouris replied, “I don’t know, either.” But, realistically, how could it even POSSIBLY not be the case? Would that not necessarily imply that Germany DOES possess sovereignty over Germany?
Maybe Germany’s leaders will do a 180-degree reversal and kick out all the U.S. military bases that are there and quit the anti-Russia military alliance, America’s NATO; but, unless and until that happens, Germany will remain a U.S. vassal-nation.
If this isn’t the time for Germany’s leaders to negotiate with Russia, when will it be?
What Germany’s Negotiating Position with Russia Should Be
The time might come soon when Germans will finally recognize that what’s needed in order for them to have a thriving future is for them to marry their abundance of industries with Russia’s abundance of resources — energy, materials and agriculture — and finally to say (and say decisively) no, and a final “Goodbye,” to the constant demands from the United States for “regime-change in Moscow.” However, since Germany needs trade with Russia now far more than Russia needs trade with Germany, the Germans would be negotiating from the weaker position. On the other hand, the combination of Russia’s economy with Germany’s economy would reverse Germany’s downward trajectory, and thus would suddenly restore hope for a booming future German economy — something that currently appears to be almost impossible. Germany is in the more vulnerable economic position of the two right now, but Germany’s making the switch away from America and toward Russia would provide to Russia what it wants the most of all, which is an end to the Russia-hating American hegemony, and end to America’s NATO anti-Russian military alliance, and finally an opportunity for Russia to negotiate peacefully an end to the Cold War that America has been waging against Russia even after the Soviet Union and its communism ended in 1991. This would be a deal that would benefit Russians just as much as it would benefit Germans. It would transform the global future in a more positive way than has happened in centuries. And it now is more possible than has ever been the case since the end of WW II in 1945.
In my commentary yesterday, “Germany’s Deep State is located in Washington, NOT Berlin”, I stated, and provided evidence for, something that to many people is an obvious fact: Germany — which has 231 U.S. military bases (and you can count each one of them on that list) — is a vassal-nation of the U.S. empire, and therefore cannot make any decision in international relations that the U.S. Government (the empire’s headquarters) won’t allow it to make. That’s what it means for a country to be part of an empire but not the empire's center: not the imperial nation. The vassal nation has no sovereignty, because it has yielded that up to its imperial master. Any empire is an international dictatorship. Germany cannot have democracy until it first restores its independence. And doing so would likewise restore its thriving economy, because the American empire is now set upon crushing it. If the time has not come for Germany to disobey America and restore its national sovereignty, it never will come.
That article also stated something which now is in the process of emerging as an obvious fact: that the U.S. is obstinately determined, in the late stages of its increasingly challenged (as in Vietnam, Libya, Syria, Afghanistan, and, now, also Ukraine) empire, to extract from its vassal nations, and especially from the ones that are in Europe, as many manufacturing jobs, and as much else of those colonies’ economic wherewithal, as it can, and as fast as it can.
Once Germany has negotiated its deal with Russia, Germany will be able to demand the U.S. to get out — to end its military occupation of its land and restore Germany’s national sovereignty. It can’t do that now, but once the negotiations, which will have to take place in secret, produce a binding German-Russian agreement, Germany will have that freedom — which it has not had ever since the Versailles Treaty was signed in 1919. At long last, Germany will be able to become, again, a stable and peaceful sovereign nation, no longer a vassal nation. The peace terms will be between Germany and Russia, and will weaken the U.S. empire of constant wars and coups and subversions, so that the world’s future will then clearly be led by the Eurasian Continent (no longer from the U.S. across the Atlantic), and this will be a new and better future for the entire world than has been, since 1900, the world’s recent past (including since post-WW-II, the period of The West’s subservience to the U.S. regime, which is an international police-state).
What Russia wants more than anything else is a stable peace. What Germany needs more than anything else is restoration of its sovereignty. That would be the deal. Both sides to it would come out ahead from it — as would the entire world. And it would peacefully lead to the end of the American empire. It would lead to a deal between Russia and NATO itself. It would lead to what Russia’s Vladimir Putin has been calling for since at least 2007. In that sense, Germany would be leading “The West” and doing it in an anti-imperialistic way (NOT in an imperialistic way like post-WW-II America and Hitler’s Germany imposed). It would be the glory of a new, EurAsian-oriented, Germany, which then would be part of a better world. It must happen. Why not now? And, if not now, then when? When? (Or will that instead be only if?)
Will Germany decide the world’s future? Or will America? Because, if America does, it will be World War, which will destroy the entire world. This is the choice, that is to be made.
