Merkel To Europe: "Prepare To Cede Sovereignty"

Tyler Durden's picture





 

The liquidity tsunami that started in September of 2012 in the Marriner Eccles building and continued with the BOJ's own epic QEasing expansion three weeks ago, has so far provided the impetus for Europe to kick the can of its inevitable dissolution for a few more months, yet slowly but surely the market is starting to read through the artificial levels implied by Italian and Spanish bonds, driven by recycled ECB funding via bank and repo conduits and of course Japanese carry cash, and rumblings of a return to crisis conditions are back.

And as always happens, once the crisis talk is back, so is discussion of a fiscal union. Sure enough, earlier today Germany's Angela Merkel once again reminded everyone just what the stakes are in order to achieve a truly stable, and sustainable European union: nothing short of ceding sovereignty to Germany. And with that we are back to square one, because that has always been the trade off - want a unified, fiscally and monetarily, Europe? You can get it: just bow down to Merkel.

From Reuters:

German Chancellor Angela Merkel said on Monday that euro zone members must be prepared to cede control over certain policy domains to European institutions if the bloc is truly to overcome its debt crisis and win back foreign investors.

 

Speaking at an event hosted by Deutsche Bank in Berlin alongside Polish Prime Minister Donald Tusk, Merkel also defended her approach to the crisis against critics who argue she has put too much emphasis on austerity, saying Europe must find a way to deliver both growth and solid finances.

 

The comments came two months before European leaders are due to gather in Brussels to discuss moving towards a so-called "fiscal union".

The punchline:

"We seem to find common solutions when we are staring over the abyss," Merkel said. "But as soon as the pressure eases, people say they want to go their own way.

 

"We need to be ready to accept that Europe has the last word in certain areas. Otherwise we won't be able to continue to build Europe," she added.

Two conclusions here: Europe will be "staring over the abyss" very soon once again, and where Merkel says "Europe" she means Germany.

This is confirmed by the immediate denial of precisely this, adding "it would be "dangerous" if other countries in Europe felt Germany was imposing its own economic model across the entire bloc."

Oh, ok then.

So just what is Germany's vision for "Europe":

"We don't always need to give up national practices but we need to be compatible," Merkel said. "It is chaos right now."

 

"We need to be prepared to break with the past in order to leap forward. I'm ready to do this," she said.

So... just give up national practices sometimes. And yes, Merkel is of course ready to head the asset-stripmined continent. The question is who else in Europe is willing to hand over their liberties to the next iteration of the German Reich?

The Christian God is the original NWO eye in the sky. If the Nazis were the Third Reich, who were the first? Oh right - the Roman Empire, under the aegis of the Christian Demiurge, which went from tribe to tribe exterminating everyone they couldn't convert. It was the Christian God who smashed revelry and nature worship wherever he found it, putting to the sword scholars and priestesses and dumb, dirty peasants alike when they did not submit. I can't believe the number of people who claim to be anti-NWO while following the NWO's exoteric religion; ever read "The Family?"

Re: "Merkel is a stooge puppet for the money powers."

Wasn't Hitler?

You can say that this isn't about Germany, except that Merkel is in Germany -- ostensibly their 'leader,' bizarre as it seems -- and her administration is in charge of the finances and playbook and future of the German people. So yes, Vince Clortho, my doublethinking friend, this *is* also about Germany.

You point is still good though, to the extent that the perceived 'accountability' of bankster-whored governments to their people is being seen once again for the sham that it always was.

The Christian God is the original NWO eye in the sky......It was the Christian God who smashed revelry and nature worship wherever he found it,

christians simply, rather conveniently, forget where today's tyrany for global control started.  that's right.  in vatican, the oldest and most profitable corporation of them all - the corporate office of vatican: on 18 November 1302, Boniface issued the bull Unam sanctam. It declared that both spiritual and temporal power were under the pope's jurisdiction, and that kings were subordinate to the power of the Roman pontiff.  and then the unam sanctam ends:

Furthermore, we declare, we proclaim, we define that it is absolutely necessary for salvation that every human creature be subject to the Roman Pontiff

if that is not a forward looking, human kind enslaving, corporate mission statement, then i dont know what is ...

Anyone can call themself anything including the entire Vatican and Hitler quoted the Bible often. Organized Religion does not a Christian make. Only the Holy Spirit can do that. He also will decide who we are and refine us. The object at hand is to avoid the trap before it is sprung. (To avoid "the wrath to come")  Enjoy your religious freedom while you still have it.

Scapegoats are so hot right now. Because fuck taking responsibility for ones (or ones own elected governments) actions.

German WW2 debt reparations: $23bn plus forced labour camps, as well as outright intellectual property theft to the tune of $10bn, or the equivalent of ($33+bn / $35 = 943m oz x 31.3 / 1000 / 1000 =) 29,511 tons of fucking gold.

And that's not forgetting that WW2 was in large part started because of WW1 debt reparations, and now some fucking clueless posters here want to saddle them with more debt once again. Here's how it affected Germany, post-WW1:

Perhaps those very same people ought to pick up books on how the German economy was managed post-WW2. Oh, I forget. It's much easier to rage about moronic regurgitated talking points, seeking to locate a scapegoat, than study the aftermath.

Yeah, at this point I don't think Merkel is going to make it through next fall's elections.  The German economy will pay a heavy price if they go back to the DM, but that's still a better alternative to continuing with the EUR.  It's funny to watch German state TV and note the huge disconnect between their messaging (very heavy on "we must pay back for our past crimes") and the streets ("we've paid plenty, fuck off").

"no black market finance" I agree. Having said that this is clearly more than just Germany...French, Spanish and Italian banks benefit from this as well since the biggest recipient of "the banker largesse"'is the State and "growth opportunities in the East." i'd still stick with US based finance (Morgan Stanley, JP Morgan, Citi) as they have their own "largesse" (Fed QE, mild to non existent tax regime, nominal growth, an understanding of how this type of financing--sans gold--actually works, etc...) to work with. Wouldn't be surprised if those dividends start dramatically rising as well.

Great piece today from John Ward of the Slog, on the crooked devious German government -

How after World War II, the other countries semi-forgave and POSTPONED THE DEBTS OF GERMANY so Germany could rebuild in the 1950s ... although GERMANY PROMISED TO PAY AFTER THEY WERE RE-UNIFIED

Then after the fall of the Berlin Wall and the 1990 German re-unification, the GERMANS SAID IT WAS NOT A GOOD TIME TO REPAY, because they had so many re-unification expenses

but legally GERMANS STILL OWE DEBT AND REPARATIONS they have not paid

Like to the GREEKS whom THE NAZIS ROBBED ...

---

From John Ward's article:

« ... after the second world war the Americans imposed the London debt agreement of 1953 on their allies, an exercise in debt forgiveness to Germany on the most generous terms. West Germany’s economic miracle, the stability of the deutschmark and the favourable state of its public finances were all owed to this massive haircut. But it put Germany’s creditors at a disadvantage, leaving it to them to cope with the financial aftermath of the German occupation.’

The London debt agreement deferred settlement of the reparations question to a conference to be held after a future German reunification..which most people thought would never happen. But ever since it did happen in 1990, the Germans have steadfastly refused to honour the settlement.

In 1990, the Germans argued that any plausible deal would exceed the country’s resources, and that continued financial co-operation in Europe instead would be infinitely preferable. Waydergo: wouldn’t it be just peachy if the Germans now returned that favour in relation to Greek debt? Would a little smidgen of Berlin forgiveness and cooperation in relation to ClubMed be appropriate here? »

Let's have a look at the Club Med - Spain was neutral in WW2 so neither winner nor loser...Portugal too afaik...Italy was member of the axis and therefore on par with Germany so no debts owed here too (and, btw Italy was the ORIGINAL invader of Greece, Germany came later when Italy botched it!).

So, one MIGHT indeed have a second thought in Germany about being a little more lenient at least with Greece.

BUT: fact is, that these incredibly lazy, corrupt and incopetent a******* in the Greek Ministry of Finance are not even now, after 4 years of crisis, able to go to the next marina, have a look at all those 40-, 50,- 60+ feet yachts and check their owners declared income!

Are we really to believe that THOSE people are able to analyze 190.000 documents which were 70 - 100 years old (those reparation claims stretch back to WW1(!)???? I would not judge those people to be able to find their own behind even with a torchlight!

I am not a big fan of Germany (my country was fucked royally by them in WW2) but:

- MILLIONS of German civilians were killed AFTER WW2 has ended; the biggest perpetrators were: Russians, French, Americans, British, Poles, Czechs & Slovaks (who the fuck would have thought, eh?);

- MILLIONS of German POW were killed; the biggest perpetrators were: Russians, brutish, French;

- billions of dollars in gold, art, technology were stolen (same perpetrators as POW killers);

- thousands of scientists and technicians were either kidnapped (Russia) or "transferred" (US, UK, France); Russians moved entire factories while the US got the finest scientists (mixed with some fucked up characters for good measure);

- thousand upon thousands of rapes (committed by all victorious sides);

- the civilian population was kept at starvation calories intake well into the 50s (just for the fuck of it, not due to lack of food);

- the civilian population was denied heating fuel (be it wood or other kinds of fuel), just for the fuck of it;

 

The war reparations came ON TOP of this looting and killing.

 

Bottom line: the 3rd biggest crime in the history of the 20th century was the slaughtering of the German people (PEACE time), at the hand of the 3 victorious cock sucking allies: Roosevelt, Churchill and De Gaulle (only Mao and Stalin did a "better job" but they had bigger numbers to play with; btw Hitler is included in this ranking too, but he lags far behind).

 

As always, the common man got screwed on the upside as well on the downside and ended up paying for the whole party. And now you are worried about ze Germans, that somehow want to take over the world. Nobody in his right mind wants to go to war and Germans are no exception. But go ahead and believe all the crap about it and with some luck we'll kill each other again for the benefit of our "masters".

 

Now the EU is robbing right and left, fucking Germans and PIIGS alike, but somehow is the people's fault, for not working/saving/paying taxes enough.

England had to pay back the USA every single dime for all the US supplies used during the wa,r tanks, guns, right down to the chewing gum. I think they eventually paid it off in the early 2000's.

Germany got a free pass. In fact all the Nazi money held in the USA flooded back into Germany after the war to quickly rebuild their infrastructure.

What did England get not a fucking dime.

Germany wants complete domination of Europe. That was the Euro plan from the begining. This is war by other means.

Germany repayed their Greek debt according to all agreements. The latest was signed in 1990.

 

After WW2 the four Allies agreed that Germany had to pay 20B$. Greece demanded 10B$ of that.

 

Greece was accorded 25M$ or about 2.7B$ in todays money.

 

Germany payed 41B$ in various different payments since 1949.

 

Other reparation agreements were agreed upon and paid as well involving payments to individuals.

 

http://www.time.com/time/world/article/0,8599,2093990,00.html

 

Taking into account that all the money that went to Greece recently is gone (probably a good bet) the question for me is: How much more does Greece want? And, will it ever be enough?

Also, what else needs to happen to show the EC leadership in Brussels that this 'United States of Europe' is nothing but a pipe dream.....

I hate her, more than I hate Bernanke.

I have family in Germany, and like many Germans, they think this traitorous toolbag bitch is actually doing something positive for the country.

Germany is just like the US in a lot of respects, especially immigration. They open the floodgates to 3rd world'ers, who get free benefits for years (18 in Germany's case), all on the backs of the "working man".

Couldn't edit to add this:

Despite being one continent, Euroland is comprised of nations whose populations all have their own distinct culture, customs, beliefs, work ethic, etc. It evolved that way over hundreds of years, and no amount of political rhetoric, or legislative action is suddenly going to change that.

You have countries that are more Germanic in terms of ideology (Austria, for instance), but getting "everyone on the same page" is another story. It's Not Going To Happen. 

So give it up already, EU.

Go back to the policy of "every nation for herself". It's better for everybody that way, especially Germany.

Would those discussions really have to be "at length"?  

There seems be a desire by some in Brussels and elsewhere to maintain 27 independent votes at the UN and 27 separate Foreign Ministry spending budgets, all parroting a single foreign policy dictated by Brussels.  Only four of those supposedly "Sovereign" EU States share borders with Switzerland, yet TPTB in Brussels would like nothing more than to disregard Switzerland's tradition of bilateral treaties as well as the sovereignty of the EU's own members in regards to non CFSP foreign relations with Switzerland and negotiate pacts strictly between Brussels and Bern.  That puts Switzerland in an rather awkward position, where it is being pressured to treat its supposedly equal and sovereign neighbors as inferior vassal States not worthy of direct negotiation.  And what does it say of logic in Brussels- that Estonia and Cyprus should have a larger vote than Germany with regards to economic and trade integration with Switzerland?

Or perhaps I missed some lengthy public debate on this matter during my travels or due to my poor French and German skills?

I was intentionally conflating quite a number of distinct but interwoven issues (and will continue to do so here), because while I agree with you on the tactics and risks of Merkel's plan du jour, I begin to disregard the ideals of EU whenever I survey the horrors of the Wurstenfabrik, which I believe at best run counter to the ideals of its advocates.  Politics is a zero-sum game and the power players of the EU/EMU leadership have demonstrated a willingness to disregard both consistency and intellectual integrity in the pursuit of political expediency, only to oscillate frameworks (EU27 to EMU17 or Federal to Confederate) as soon as the crisis, challenge or negotiating party changes.  Furthermore, the irresponsible  EU/EMU  leadership seem to expect the rest of the world to continue to idly underwrite their profligacy and so far- fruitless pursuit of reform, or even consensus on the direction of reform, and demand nothing in exchange.

There cannot be a legitimate foreign policy union absent a budgetary union, and no union will serve or respect the diverse and conflicting needs of all members equally.  Anything less is merely talking in circles in an attempt to sustain the unsustainable.

And while the whole world is waiting with bated breath for some sort of consensus to emerge out of the Comedy of Errors that is EU "Management" it would be polite if Mario or whatever reptilian shape-shifter is running the "Council show" at  Ecofin/FAC- would cut the Swiss a check for their upkeep expenses on Brussel's continual negligence over in Austria, Poland, and Hungary where again there is an absence of any EU consensus on who is actually responsible for what in that mess, but where even the Troika's IMF appendage agrees Budapest isn't paying its dues. 

Alternatively, the FED, BOJ, or even SNB could front-run Russia and just buy Cyprus (and its EU voting apparatus) for pennies on the dollar or a weeks worth of underwriting of broader EMU profligacy while we're all waiting for Godot to show up with that mythical EU consensus.  At some point someone outside of the EU will get creative just to pass the days away.

Seriously, I know you favor the European Hopium, but when is someone responsible in Europe going to step up and fish, or cut bait?  The exceptional commitment of European "political capital" is supposed to be at least slightly less laughable then Dubya trying to articulate a sophisticated argument for American Exceptionalism.

The remedy is to set them right as to facts, pardon and pacify them. What signify a few lives lost in a century or two?

It is not that simple when your politicians are in the pocket of the ECB aka technocrats and work for them first and you second.

I get Merkel's point about not wanting to fund a bunch of freeloaders. Cut them loose and let them figure it out on their own don't act like a dictator over it. You can't force people to change that don't want to admit they have a problem, you got to cut them loose and once they admit it then you can actually work towards fixing.

Because there is a party whip system in Ireland so a few paid off politicians can dictate to their political parties as leaders, the policies to be followed. No mainstream party are Anti-EU.

Can you give a rational explanation for Euro area economic policy then ?

 

They obviously wish to destroy us.

Post 1980 ~ Ireland ,Italy and the rest became a colonial market for their products.

Now we are worth more dead then alive  within the eurosystem which means they will extract our energy ration so as to export to trade deficit US ,UK & pegged China.

 

PS 

 

Provisional Irish energy balance for 2012 published a few days ago.

http://www.seai.ie/Publications/Statistics_Publications/Energy_Balance/2012_Provisional_Energy_Balance.pdf
(detailed breakdown of consumption in transport , heating etc yet to be published.)

Of course massive (probably the biggest % decline in Europe) drops are again seen – especially oil consumption.

Total primary energy supply oil (inc non energy)
Y2005 : 9 ,586 KTOE (Peak)
Y2010 : 7,690 KTOE
Y2011 : 7,101 KTOE
Y2012 : 6,244 KTOE !!!!

Thats a 34 % drop oil consumption without the use of a national currency token................

So we lost close to a million tons of oil consumption in one year ! ( 0.857 MTOE)

Nat Gas consumption also rolling over recently
Y2010 : 4,704 KTOE
Y2011 : 4,138 KTOE
Y2012 : 4,018 KTOE

Coal consumption up just a bit but no where near 1990 levels when we has much less oil & gas central heating.
(The only coal fired electricity plant in the south of Ireland came on stream around 1987 ~)
Y1990 : 2,085 KTOE ( max post 1990)
Y2009 : 1,154 KTOE (min)
Y2010 : 1,240 KTOE
Y2011 : 1,264 KTOE
Y2012 : 1,482 KTOE

Milled (industrial) peat up a bit these last couple of years.
Sod peat down (Euro boys & girls banning harvesting ?)

Milled peat
Y1992 : 804 KTOE (peak)
Y2010 : 643 KTOE
Y2011 : 619 KTOE
Y2012 : 676 KTOE

Sod peat
Y1990 : 617 KTOE (post 1990 peak)
Y2010 : 165 KTOE
Y2011 : 158 KTOE
Y2012 : 128 KTOE

 

 

But what if global resource constraints is solely a result of core internal euro deflation / creation of artificial scarcity which was used to give credit to the world…….

Given that there was no rational wage demand for these high value products in the colonial markets (other the bank credit) there was of course malinvestment / destruction of capital.
The (war time) capital both human & physical is now destroyed (no job retraining) so we now have real scarcity.

The destruction of Italy & the rest of us explained.

You don't understand what happened to Irish domestic industry when we left the Sterling peg in 1979 so as to join the euro.

Wages was 70% of GDP ~ in 1980

During the height of the boom it was in the mid 40 %.................

 

Because all rational domestic primary and secondary industry was destroyed we had no choice (within a  non sov country) but to game the international multinational system so as to pay the debt so as to maintain a positive money supply.
