A New World Order?

Frankly, it takes your breath away. As though Angela Merkel had not done enough damage already, she recently suggested that nations prepare themselves to sacrifice their national sovereignty to the good judgment of the intellectual elites who run the European Union. Or some such.

It’s bad enough that Merkel has fundamentally transformed her own nation for the worse. Now she wants to share her Kantian vision with the world. Or better, she wants to impose it on the world. This cosmopolitan view of humanity, joined together in what Kant was the first to call a “league of nations” amounts to what people call the liberal world order.

You know about the liberal world order. Presumably, James Mattis was referring to it when he implied that President Trump was not sufficiently deferential to our Western European allies. And Bret Stephens, on one of his bad days, suggested that this liberal world order is the best friend Israel could have.

Presumably, Stephens was referring to the actions of our own presidential Kantian, Barack Obama, who declared himself, in words that echo Kant, “a citizen of the world” and whose idea of a liberal world order involved funding Iranian terrorism against Israel. 

And, Merkel’s government, along with the ever soft European foreign policy chief, Federika Mogherini, has been upholding the international world order by doing everything it can to save the Islamic Republic of Iran from American sanctions.

The deeper meaning of Merkel’s parting shot is, as Ben Judah suggested, that she and the European Union she pretends to control have lost out. Her plaintive wails seem to be coming from the peanut gallery, from those who history has tossed aside. The same seems now to be true of that great climate change warrior, Emmanuel Macron. Surely, he is a brilliant politician, but one whose brilliance seems not to command very much respect among the populace.

As for Merkel’s madness, here is the Zero Hedge report (viaMaggie’s Farm):

“Nation states must today be prepared to give up their sovereignty”,according to German Chancellor Angela Merkel, who told an audience in Berlin that sovereign nation states must not listen to the will of their citizens when it comes to questions of immigration, borders, or even sovereignty.

A politician who is retiring in near-disgrace can say what she really thinks. She must count among those who are bowing down to the god of democracy while insisting that government leaders must ignore the will of the people:

But Merkel has always had a tin ear for comedy and she soon launched into a dark speech condemning those in her own party who think Germany should have listened to the will of its citizens and refused to sign the controversial UN migration pact:

“There were [politicians] who believed that they could decide when these agreements are no longer valid because they are representing The People”.

“[But] the people are individuals who are living in a country, they are not a group who define themselves as the [German] people,” she stressed.

Merkel has previously accused critics of the UN Global Compact for Safe and Orderly Migration of not being patriotic, saying “That is not patriotism, because patriotism is when you include others in German interests and accept win-win situations”.

As the article points out, it sounds like she is trying to revive the Third Reich. To imagine that other countries will accept German policy on migration is madness. It is equally mad to imagine that national interest is common among different nations.

As mad as it is, French president Macron thinks the same thing.

Her words echo recent comments by the deeply unpopular French President Emmanuel Macron who stated in a Remembrance Day speech that “patriotism is the exact opposite of nationalism [because] nationalism is treason.”

The French president’s words were deeply unpopular with the French population and his approval rating nosedived even further after the comments.

Macron, whose lack of leadership is proving unable to deal with growing protests in France, told the Bundestag that France and Germany should be at the center of the emerging New World Order.

Where have we heard that before?

The truth is, both leaders have failed. History is bypassing their arrogant presumption. It’s yet another sign that a strategic realignment is taking place… one where small countries like France and Germany will have less influence. Given that they do not even see the reality that is staring them in the face, it should be clear that they are not taking it well at all.

The scoundrel says: "What's thine is mine".
The average man says: "What's thine is thine, and what's mine is mine."
The saint says: "What's thine is thine, and what's mine is thine."

Merkel, Macron, Obamao:

"You didn't build that!"

Scoundrels, all.

We, or anyone else, should give up our sovereignty to these fools? Who are certain that they are smarter than we are? No. NO. Not gonna happen. Well, maybe in Europe, where the people have been socialized to OBEY. Mostly. Might just break away, though.

Deserttrek, you can take the girl out of the DDR, but you can't take the DDR out of the girl.

Chuckle o' th' Day: The Guardian (a former news paper) reports that the struggling, ramshackle German military is recruiting Polish and Czech volunteers, and Reuters tells us they're aggressively recruiting minors (there's a precedent for that). Hansel Sitz-Pinkler and Gretel Herrisch are otherwise engaged occupying the BDSM fleshpots in Berlin, and falsifying auto emissions tests to sell cars in America.

Obviously, Germans are no longer a concern to adherents of the popular conspiracy theory bogeyman, The NWO.
