Directed History: A Fact of Life?
The news from the EU front becomes ever more bizarre. Last Wednesday, just before Angela Merkel flew to London to tell David Cameron how desperately she wants Britain to stay in the EU, she told the European Parliament: "Of course the European Commission will one day become a government, the European Council a second chamber and the European Parliament will have more powers – but for now we have to focus on the euro and give people a little more time to come along." In other words, the EU is still on track to become precisely that "government of Europe" that Jacques Delors was boasting about in 1989 (to which Mrs Thatcher famously responded "No, no, no"). – UK Telegraph
Dominant Social Theme: The universe grinds on. Things emerge without rhyme or reason. Life continues.
Free-Market Analysis: Here in this UK Telegraph news roundup we have several nuggets of incredibly important information.
The first, above, speaks to the issue of what the EU is intended to become. Angela Merkel suddenly explains what must be clear to anyone who has had the stomach to follow EU politics: It was created to become an empire.
"Of course the European Commission will one day become a government, the European Council a second chamber and the European Parliament will have more powers – but for now we have to focus on the euro and give people a little more time to come along."
What is amazing about Merkel's comments is the precision with which she makes them. It is obvious that the EU political system was laid out with empire in mind decades ago.
We've written about this a number of times but it is worth re-emphasizing in light of the curious precision of Merkel's comments. Here's what we reported only a few days ago:
The EU's 'beneficial crisis' has spun out of control ... 'Europe' expected to be united through emergencies, but this one will tear it apart ... As long ago as 1957, Jean Monnet – who was the real organising genius behind the gradual building of "Europe" into a single, unified state – suggested that it was only through monetary and economic union that the "political union which is the goal" could be achieved. "There are no premature ideas," he wrote, "only opportunities for which we must learn to wait."
By 1970, Monnet's ideas were being fleshed out by the Werner report, which saw monetary union as the key step towards political union. But in 1978, another report for the European Commission, by Sir Donald McDougall, warned that it would be reckless to create a single currency unless Europe was first given an all-powerful government, with the power to tax, and to make a massive transfer of resources from the richer states to the poorer.
In the 1980s, though, that other great integrator Jacques Delors (second only to Monnet in his influence on the drive to European political union) decided to ignore the advice of McDougall and others and to launch the single currency without the suggested preconditions. To move straight to fiscal union, he knew, was not on the cards. But if the single currency was put in place first, it would create exactly the kind of strains which had been foreseen – making fiscal union the only way out.
At the time, we called the EU exercise, especially the euro, "an exercise in cynicism." The idea was to implement a currency union, we explained, "which would then collapse and usher in a full-fledged political union. First an economic calamity and then a political salvation ... Hundreds of millions traded in their national currency for euros that were designed to fail. They were SUPPOSED to fail."
We've made additional points regarding this issue, and we will repeat them because they offer a pattern that we believe is indisputable and confirms our analysis of directed history. Based on the above, we reaffirm our previous points regarding the manufactured nature of this "sovereign" crisis that no doubt EU backbenchers refer to quietly as an "opportunity."
Why, in fact, was the emergent opportunity a sovereign crisis? Because that was easiest to control. It is the Way the World Works. The World Bank lends billions to corrupt governments and then the IMF follows along with its "austerity" – higher taxes, lower services and benefits and privatization.
This is how the developing world experienced the twin cannons of Western control. The only slightly unusual part is that the World Bank/IMF strategy is now being applied to a first-world continent, Europe.
But should we be surprised? No. The strategies of authoritarianism are refined in the developing world – where no one is supposed to notice – before being rolled out in the West. Again, for the record, we repeat ... and repeat: Western bankers are not idiots. Not ONE of those banking officials who made the decisions (certainly not at the top) expected immediate repayment.
In this world, the largest multinational banks are instruments of Money Power. They lent because they were told to lend. They lent as policy instruments of a power elite that EXPECTED multiple defaults and desired the current crisis as a way to generate a greater political union.
Read how Merkel puts it, how clearly she explains it. She seems to believe she has nothing to hide now. She is telling her people and the opposition that this was all planned long ago. It will proceed with a merciless advance, like an occupying army. This is surely the reason for her candor.
The billions lent in Portugal, Spain, Greece, etc. were ill-disguised bribes. Those who took the funds and then disbursed them work at the top levels of government. In Greece, for instance, a trial is taking place that pits a reporter against the Greek establishment. His crime: Revealing that many Greek politicians have secret Swiss bank accounts. See here: "Reporter Exposes Tax Evasion Among Greek Politicians, Targeted for Arrest."
Of course they do. When a national politician in Europe is tempted to tell the Eurocrats to go to Hell, he is apt to be visited by some good, gray men who tell him clearly that he can either open a Swiss account to receive a bribe – hush money – or face obloquy and embarrassment in the mainstream press.
Almost always they take the money. Apparently there is hardly an uncompromised politician in all of Europe. Which is why the Euro project grinds on even though its citizens by now don't agree with it and want it to end. Here's some more from the article:
In the meantime Mrs Merkel and her eurozone colleagues are hell-bent on getting the new treaty they imagine is necessary to save their doomed euro, and from which Britain will be excluded. So she wants Britain to remain part of an EU from whose inner ring we will be excluded, but she hopes that this will give us "a little more time" to come to our senses and join the euro – thus signing up to the full package, including the idea that the unelected Commission should be our supreme government.
Does Mr Cameron really have any idea of what a far-reaching game he is caught up in? Another story last week – with the headline "We need wind farms to power electric cars, says Cameron" – may make us wonder. On the face of it, nothing could seem dottier than putting these two huge blunders together: the fanciful belief that we can somehow provide a third of our electricity from unreliable windmills; and the quixotic enthusiasm for electric cars which, despite hefty subsidies, remain so unpopular that their UK sales have fallen this year to just 749.
Mr Cameron's faith in these vehicles is just as absurd as his plan, confirmed again last week by an energy minister, Baroness Verma, that every home and business in Britain must be fitted with "smart meters" within seven years, at a cost of £11 billion.
What few have yet realised is that all these schemes are part of a grand EU design for our future which even now is being tested on the Danish island of Bornholm in the Baltic (check out EcoGrid and Bornholm on the internet).
The point about smart meters is that they do not only enable us consumers to keep tabs on our electricity use: they also (though our Government does not like to spell this out) enable suppliers to exercise remote control over how much electricity we use. The EU knows that the windmills it wants to see covering Europe are unpredictably intermittent, and cannot guarantee sufficient power when it is needed.
The answer the EU's technocrats dream of, as we see from the Bornholm pilot project for a "European supergrid", is that they can use smart meters to micro-manage the power we receive, right down to their ability to switch off whole categories of electricity use in our homes when there is insufficient power in the grid (what they call " 'intelligent' control of household appliances" , such as dishwashers or televisions).
But the windmills can also produce too much electricity when there is no demand – which is where electric cars come in. The idea of the EU grand designers is that we shall all be charging up our car batteries at night, to soak up the surplus power generated by windmills at times when demand is low – to keep the grid stable without needing to balance it from "carbon" emitting gas and coal-fired power stations.
All this is so fiendishly ingenious that one suspects Mr Cameron has been talked into promoting it without any real idea of what he has got caught up in. But equally this applies to his wish for Britain to remain part of an EU that is following Mrs Merkel's dream of a single all-powerful government, over which we would have even less influence than we do now.
Again, we take exception. Cameron knows EXACTLY what is going on, just as Merkel does. These people are servants of Money Power. They work for a banking elite that intends to create global governance and has penetrated the topmost level of society around the world to do so.
Education, politics, military facilities, think tanks, mainstream media – every aspect of modern civilization has been taken over and bent toward this singular goal. The mechanism is directed history. The funding source is monopoly central banking. The strategy employed is mercantilism.
When it comes to what's being revealed here, we want to make sure our readers (and gratifyingly there are hundreds of thousands now) understand that there is nothing mystifying about our paradigm. You can analyze elite actions, too.
Accept that there is a power elite driving us toward world government and meticulously planning out the details of various "disasters" that provide the justification for further authoritarianism and the rest becomes clear. It is the reason we were able to predict years ago the use and eventual abuse of Smart Meters. Here are some articles:
We don't have a crystal ball. We just have the determination – like you – to look at what's going on without flinching or lying to ourselves to make things seem better than they are.
Conclusion: The great gift of the Internet Reformation is to allow us to see clearly ... if we want to.

If you put a frog into boiling water, it will jump right out, but if you put it into lukewarm water, it will stay and you can turn the heat up slowly and boilt it alive.
Elementary, my dear Tony.
Angela Merkel and the CFR are applying the same method in Europe.
Do a background check on Ms Merkel and see her pedigree.

Now that we are doomed to another 4 years of the fraud in chief I really wish this blog and others like it would more heavily cover the story of Obama's fraudulent documents. Maybe I missed it but I haven't seen it here. This is such an open and shut case and it's so obvious. I implore you to hammer this story relentlessly until there is more mainstream awareness... .

Last ditch effort on the Swami Ramdev topic, which again is also a seeming at first unrelated to 'directed history' : but if social engineering is considered, maybe it (spiritual engineering) is a key element! Like "Soma" in Brave New World. This is a brief synopsis of my original way longer comment (which wouldn't publish under the UN guru article.
Seemed (by the fact it would not publish) this quiet little topic was not to be trifled with lightly (lightly as my 'mightier than a bludgeon' pen)
Hmm. Could rewrite just opinions but leave out the subversive key words (just tried the opposite and my writ was bounced again) occult "reasoning" (a nice oximoron) being rather hard enough to grasp with the names, places, facts & so on.
So yet more briefly and blandly put :
In theory, a global elite wish to forge a central world government. It needs a global currency and even a single global religion.
The publishing house of the UN is Lucis Trust :

It's aim seems to be this goal.
Globalist think tanks such as Tavistock :

Are said to be involved with social engineering (rock music 60's. etc) a guru working with the UN seems... hmmm, ah yes : Seedy! A plant.
Empires need a powerful unifying myth to glue it's flag and coats of armor onto : in short, a religion.

Hello... am having trouble getting comments through. Is there a technical problem or dove too deep into subversive international waters, names, places and ideas ... indeed wanted to comment about Swami Ramdev... new age "wisdom" and the interesting publishing company of the UN born of rather an occult background. Interest in a one world religion and so on.
As elite memes go this innocent little subject is indeed as central as currency... maybe yet more deep too. So misplaced here, it is no less also very much a social engineering sort of effort at directed history. Indeed the UE (united elite's) desire for control can not ignore the power it would bring to harness into some sort of modern unifying spiritual guide... be it a puffed up media darling guru or a faked UFO... but dare not say more!
Only in that the oximoron of making rational sense out of any occult topic is like trying to win a chess game with a tough opponent... while ice skating... blindfolded. This suspected result (difficulty) is one of it's main attractions (and pit falls) !
Like trying to musically tackle the subject of mortality... which of course makes for things like Beethoven's 3rd or Mozart's Requiem ; or Hamlet's solilique (indeed musical) and Oscar Wilde's DeProfundus (on artistic par with Beethoven's Grosse Fuga) followed by his shame years in Paris.
All things which come to mind with such frustrations as certain "facts" emerge out of the hazy lazy warmly protected apathy's ignorance.

OK, your recent comments are showing up. So obviously you're not having a problem on our end. But comments tend to vanish in the ether if they are too long, so you might want to make them shorter. Just a technical glicht ...

I would suggest looking at the jewelry and clothes worn by these 'leaders' and realize what level of expense they represent. It screams I AM IMPORTANT/YOU ARE NOTHING. Comsumption at that level costs many many lifetimes of work... many.
He/She who is 'First' among you must be 'Least' has no meaning anymore. Be self-reliant... believe in yourself, not someone else to supply your need. Reduce the level of your wants to the level of your needs.
Run do not walk to the exit.

I believe in biblical prophecy, which says the there will be an antichrist that will unite the whole world. What I see is that steps are coming into placed to make this the united world. This man will bring peace to the world and all the world will accept him as there saviour. The fact that it is a man who will bring peace tells me that wars are going to continue and escalate.

"richer states to the poorer." Even the richer can't afford to carry along all the rest.

The parasitic sector is aware that as they leech even more blood from the producers, they need even more control of would-be dissenters. Smart meters give them the ability to fine-tune their control. Don't think that electricity is their only avenue of control.

In a general sense, GOV buys votes by insulating the non-productive sector from Darwinian pressures. GOV has a vested interest in this because most bureaucrats are completely unqualified to compete in the private sector. In a general sense,,, best-case-scenario, GOV bureaucrats are qualified to supervise people.
There are a billion computers in the world. As more and more of our world is defined within the bounds of natural law and logic, the computers dictate the best course
Even economics is slipping into the realm of computer control.

The world is burdened by too many chiefs.
The draft-horse and stevedore lost their niche to mechanization.
Bureaucrats have been reduced to defining the best shape for a banana to justify their continuing employment. This is an effort to create job security for an ever-increasing cadre of people who are redundant to a productive society.
The uber eurocrats may very well have planned for a crash to gain fiscal control. This appears as an act of desperation. They know very well what happened to a parallel situation in the U.S.S.R. Central planning has never worked and Austrian economics represents their worst fears. This is a fight for job security by hordes who can't justify their continuing employment. They hope to continue by edict and fiat.
I think that they have seriously miscalculated. The socialist runup to the current situation has broken the bank for the states. Europe desperately needs to grow it's economy to pay for all the bureaucrats that plan to remain employed. Post? crash, it must grow rapidly ( a socialist economy) to pay for the parasites. The recurring temptation to socialists is to print when they discover that they can't produce actual wealth to cover all their promises.
Japan has successfully proved that a country can scrape along the bottom for decades. America will soon dive to that same bottom to support it's non-productive sector. As computer-modeling, mechanization and artificial intelligence become ever more common, there will be an ever-increasing sector of non-producers clamoring for sustenance. Their all competing to feather their nests.
