Donald Trump understands what has been said all along for years here: The EU is a German project (also with French help) designed for the benefit Germany. It’s taking power once again, but this time through European integration and subjugation of non-compliant EU members. If you’re looking for Nazis, you’re 70 years late to the party. This time it’s different.
Trump, known for parsing through nonsense realizes Germany has anchored Europe, not the other way around as was supposed to be at the end of World War II.
PRESIDENT-elect Donald Trump believes Angela Merkel made “one very catastrophic mistake” with her open-door refugee policy, which has allowed a wave of more than one million migrants into Germany.
He claimed his relationship with Merkel “may not last long at all” as he slammed the German chancellor for allowing the migrant crisis to get out of control.
Mr Trump also hit out at the EU, abelling the crumbling Brussels bloc “a vehicle for Germany” and he suggested more countries will follow Britain’s “smart” decision in voting to leave. Continue reading
ANGELA Merkel has renewed her call for the European Union to have its own army, warning the bloc will not be able to rely on others to guarantee its security with Donald Trump in the White House and Britain set to leave.
The Berlin chief said Brussels will have to take on “more responsibility in the world” as she predicted a cooling in trans-Atlantic ties under the eurosceptic President-elect.
And describing Brexit as “emotional” for her she urged the remaining 27 member states to use Britain’s decision to leave to railroad through ever closer military cooperation. Continue reading
Since the end of World War II, Germany has generally been content in America’s shadow. The nation has been reluctant to show its power, being satisfied with economic success. But 2017 presents Germany with major international challenges. With a Russian ally in the White House, German Chancellor Angela Merkel could become Russian President Vladimir Putin’s enemy No. 1. The radical shifts in American foreign policy will force Germany to make tough decisions—and force it to try and unite Europe around whatever decision it makes. All this will force Germany to throw its weight around on the world scene in a way not often seen. Trumpet staff writer Richard Palmer examines why 2017 will be the year Germany is forced to lead.

Now we know why Britain might leave the EU sooner than expected. It was always ‘in the way’ of the plans to create the European Army since it was reluctant to join and blocked its development wherever it was able to, all in order to keep from being a subjugated vassal state of the German-Franco vision.
Germany, bent on continuing to create a Fourth Reich, didn’t care which route Great Britain took. It would be out of the way in either case. Get ready to see the world’s next superpower: The United States of Europe with its own army, dominated by Germany, likely within five to ten years — maybe even sooner at this current pace.
EU leaders say Europe needs a defense union so it can be a ‘superpower.’
Nations in the European Union have often talked about working together on defense. Many pro-EU politicians wanted some form of an EU army. But in terms of having actual, practical plans, they have had little success—until now.
On November 14, EU defense and foreign ministers agreed on concrete steps toward greater European military cooperation. Continue reading
As said a quite a few times in the past, after America is done suiciding itself into the dustbin of history, you’re looking at your likely next superpower: A German-dominated United States of Europe. History tells us that when a superpower dies, there will ultimately be another one (or more) to fill in the gap. Donald Trump’s NATO funding rhetoric just might make it so real soon.
AN OBSCURE defence agency could play a key role in greater military cooperation as the European Union pushes on with plans for an EU army.
Although virtually unknown, the European Defence Agency could be a vital element if the EU hopes to forge tighter defence links in the future.
Currently, the organisation has a relatively tiny budget, staff of just 130 people, and is run by diplomats not military chiefs.
But there have been suggestions the EDA could become the European equivalent of the Pentagon – the headquarters of the United States Department of Defence. Continue reading
Donald Trump’s victory, as well as Brexit, ought to speed up plans for EU defence integration, Germany has said.
“Europe needs common political will for more security policy relevance. The outcome of the election in America could provide an additional impetus”, German defence minister Ursula von der Leyen said in an opinion article in the Rheinische Post, a German newspaper, on Thursday (10 November).
“The Brexit decision and the election in the United States have set a new course” for the EU, she added.
She said it was “difficult for Germany and Europe, on the day after the election, to assess what to expect from a Trump presidency”. Continue reading
BRUSSELS bigwig Jean-Claude Juncker has admitted he is determined to push ahead with controversial plans for a Europe-wide army.
The European Commission president claimed the proposal will keep the EU safe if the US distances itself from the bloc.
Germany’s government, especially Angela Merkel, is proving inadequate. For a leader with the right personality and leadership, this could be a terrific opportunity to seize control of Germany.
Since 1982, the year E.T. the Extra Terrestrial was released and the Falkland War occurred, Germany has had only three chancellors. The United States has had five presidents in that time; Britain six prime ministers; and Italy 15 prime ministers. Even more remarkable: Since the end of World War ii, more than 70 years ago, Germany has had only nine chancellors. That’s an average of eight years per chancellorship. America, in that time, has had 12 presidents, six years per presidency; Britain 15 prime ministers, five years per prime ministership; and Italy 45 prime ministerships, averaging 1.5 years each.
Behind these facts is a fundamental truth: Postwar Germany, perhaps more than any other modern nation, is accustomed to political stability and order.
So what happens if this stable, dependent political system breaks down? History provides some insight. Continue reading
