Germany’s rearmament has become concrete in recent days, with orders thick and fast for nuclear-capable F-35 jets, transport aircraft and refuelers.
The Times of London on Mar 6 observed that Germany has changed more in three days than the past three decades.
“Every facet of foreign and security policy, of energy and economic policy, has been turned on its head. The transformation goes deeper too, to the psyche of citizens brought up to believe that peace was the country’s highest calling.”
Chancellor Olaf Scholz said Russia’s invasion of Ukraine impelled the new policy. But a broader view shows Germany has been maneuvered into position over many years and for the historically minded, the alarum tolls.
Sanctions have obliged Germany to forsake Russian markets and energy. At the same time it has turned into a military milch cow for Lockheed Martin and others, ordering 50 jets. As Europe’s biggest economy (GDP of $3.6 trillion, France $2.7 trillion, UK $2.2 trillion, Italy at $2.1 trillion, Russia $2.01 trillion) it can afford the bill but what kind of tensions does it set in motion?
This strategy to rearm within the nascent defence agency of a flagging EU, could revitalize the federation around a wealthy northern core, headed by a newly remilitarized Germany.
Unless it finds an answer to its now crippled energy supplies, it looks like someone is blowing up the balloon.
I doubt very much that Joe Biden has Europe on the mat: this is being done by deterministic factions within Germany, not strictly friends of Klaus Schwab in Davos at the World Economic Forum, but extended family. And with the help of the international banking interests who have helped Germany arise before.
That’s when history dongs like a bell. When the economy is shaky and someone launches an arms race; bankers open the spigots; then have a war that puts natural resources in play. They add a little social engineering, behaviour modification, a bit of eugenic research on the side, and come out of it with promises of “never again,” a land fit for heroes and a another redistribution of wealth (upwards).
That’s what we’ve got. Ukraine provides the assets in play along with Russia’s foreign reserves — in a bigger scenario there’s the mineral resources of Central Asia; Covid unleashed the psychologists and bio-surveillance on the population, the mRNA experiment is underway, and lockdowns provide the wealth redistribution to the billionaires.
Central bank digital currencies will complete the process of subjugation, tying the populace to their digital ID, while relieving most of them of the ability to buy assets — thus enriching the trillionaires.
Events, dear boy
Let us not credit to war that which was underway before. We have three recent impetus: monetary reset/Great Reset, Covid pandemic and conflict.
We know that in Aug 2019 the Central Bankers planned “Going Direct” — the closing of main street and the channeling of trillions to the wealthiest corporations — two months before Covid was announced in China.
The impact of the pandemic is largely a monetary transformative event:
1. Commodity prices had been hyper-financialized by decades of central bank money printing. Lockdown and Covid restrictions disrupted supply chains, which war has further distorted.
2. The dramatic downsizing of the global workforce is already happening: small and mid-size businesses responsible for 80 per cent of employment are reeling due to lockdown, not war. A broad perspective would trace Western deindustrialization to NAFTA and the pivot to China to Deng Xiaoping's U.S. trip in 1979 (though West's Canton-centered opium families have interests that go back centuries).
The forecasts and Cassandra-like prognostications of the World Economic Forum represent the "Great Narrative" — as the WEF itself admits. WEF represents the 1,000 biggest corporations, allied to the interests embedded inthe World Bank and UN.
3. Political posturing interrupted Russian gas, long before sanctions let alone war. It has not diminished Europe’s thirst, any more than it has reduced our reliance on food. And one-third of the world's wheat comes from Russia and Ukraine.
The interests ranged against Russia cannot take it down without starving their own people of Russian oil, gas and minerals.
4. Food shortages were already on the horizon before the war, and even rationing. Investors in synthetic food such as Bill Gates will take advantage.
5. The pandemic was the main experimental push towards central bank digital currencies — not the war, which is disruptive to this process. The self-inflicted damage to the petrodollar is much bigger than Swift. CBDC's are being prepared for imminent roll out.
6. The Belt and Road project will receive a further impetus, unless sanctions on some future day extend to China.
7. China and Israel are close; the latter is full of Russian scientists. Brendan O'Connell has been making this point forever.
8. Digital ID is essentially point 5. It has nothing to do with Sustainable Development Goals. It is a new form of monetary control which may end the individual's freedom to contract, and merge physical, biological and digital identity in a form of bondage. The aim of slavery is slavery, the aime of collecting DNA is ownership of data. SDGs and environmentalism is the cover.
9. The BBC says Russia may isolate its internet. The Cyber Polygon is a WEF narrative-as-pretext to regionalize the Internet and require Digital IDs to sign on. This may be linked to CBDCs but would also serve to restrict dissent, or criticism of measures such as rationing etc; while allowing the delivery of a tailored narrative.
10. Governments will cease to exist in their current form as the arms-length relationship with private capital will be replaced by central control by central banks. Monetary reset is effectively a shift to the direct ownership of assets. Corporations take the driving seat (they already have) but governments merely become service delivery agents.
History does not repeat
Yet this is an echo. Fast-back a century and Tsar Nicholas II tried to end the 1890s arms race by founding a prototype of the United Nations. On 29 July 1899 he called the first international peace conference and founded the International Court of Justice in the Hague.
Nicholas ll had been persuaded by Ivan Bliokh, a Jewish railway pioneer and financier, who foresaw the devastation that war would bring, wrote six books on the subject, and who partially influenced the Tsar.
Nicholas II was in close contact with the Kaiser Wilhelm ll, his cousin — the two conversed in English — until both were deposed, Nicholas murdered in 1918, the same year his cousin was forced to abdicate.
After Nicholas II was murdered his project was taken over by Rothschild and Rockefeller associate Andrew Carnegie, and repurposed as the nascent League of Nations. 
In 1908 the Carnegie Foundation pondered how else but war to “alter the life of an entire people,” and concluded it must be by war.

If you read Encyclopedia Britannica there is a fun version of propaganda.
Nicholas’ cousin (by marriage) Kaiser Wilhelm II of Germany was, predictably, hostile to the idea of the Peace Conference and the whole notion of disarmament. 'Imagine', he telegraphed the Tsar, 'A Monarch . . . dissolving his regiments sacred with a hundred years of history and handing over his town to Anarchists and Democracy!'
Less predictable, perhaps, was the response from another relation, the future Edward VII of Britain, still then Prince of Wales. He in time would be known as 'Edward the Peace-maker'. Yet he commented: 'As regards the Tsar's idea of disarmament throughout all nations, it is the greatest rubbish and nonsense I ever heard of. The thing is simply impossible!' (September 1899).
Thus you are to believe that Wilhelm and Nicholas who were trying to make peace (after all, they sat at the top of the world, had few overseas assets and only their seats to lose) were really lying, and justifiably lost their thrones to “Edward the Peace-maker” who dominated half the world by brute force.
Today the push to increase weapons spending is largely driven by the U.S. which ramped up its war economy after 1945. In addition there is the festering of the financial crisis from 2008.
Central banks have printed trillions of dollars to prop up asset prices and stop corporate balance sheets from collapsing into insolvency. The money flood has seeped into every sector of trade, creating a hyper-financialised economy in which every commodity from food to lumber is an object of speculation.
In addition, the social security, medicare and welfare state is sagging under the weight of longer-living populations and bureaucratic pensions that were inadequately funded.
The result is a choice between social and political revolution — or Armageddon. The reality is lost in a forest of words; the feel-good language of saving the Earth, the cries of desperation, and the jargon of technocrats.
