WW2 Could Have Been Avoided If The United States’ Deep State Had Not Intended To Use WW2 To Seize World Power! A Most Brutal Truth About World War 2!

Both in World War One and World War Two, the US economic and diplomatic might was originally allied, for years, with various German and European fascism regimes, including the USSR, and thus enemy with “representative” democracies France and the UK… The US de facto help to fascism weakened both France and the UK crucially… as intended.., because the US Deep State wanted to subjugate the world, and that started with the subjugation of Europe. All the more as Europe had established gigantic protectorates around the world, which adminstratively hindered giant US corporations (but fascist regimes, just as China today, and for the same reasons, were enthusiastic in cooperating with US plutocracy! [1]) US plutocrats could not muster armies to invade Europe directly, as the US is a offshoot of Europe, and especially of France and Britain. The solution for US plutocrats, and it presented them with many opportunities, was to foster fascism in Europe, from Moscow to Lisbon.

In particular, US busting of the blockade of Germany and Austria-Hungary enabled those fascist powers to keep on waging war (when the blockade became effective after the US had finally joined France and Britain, German explosive production collapsed to a tenth (10%) of the French one, which enabled the French to crush the last, and most massive German attack on Paris in a deluge of steel (second batle of the Marne, July-August 1918). 

So great was the pull of German fascism that it succeeded to put Lenin in power, and then, until Hitler attacked the USSR, the latter was an ally of German fascism… And US plutocracy… which heaped gigantic investments on all European fascist regimes (mostly Italy, the USSR, Germany, and Spain in this chronological order).

The US Deep State (prominently represented by oligarchic heirs such as the Harriman brothers, etc…), wittingly or not, pulled the strings just right, so that the world order came to be ruled after the war… by the USA. Even Stalin, initially allied to Hitler, was helped by the US government in a way the French Republic was not… and just a year after France fell to Nazi tanks fueled by Russian oil… [2].

Had the US directly helped France and Great Britain in 1939 or 1940, the war would have turned completely differently: the Nazi Reich would have been promptly defeated, Japan would not have attacked the US… Instead the US applied sanctions for belligerence, in 1939… against France and Britain, for having declared war to the Nazis. Later in the war, starting as early as mid-1941, massive US governmental help to Stalin, extending the private help from US plutocrats, blossomed into the Yalta Treaty, which gave half of Europe to Stalin. Then FDR rushed to make another evil pact, this time with Ibn Saud, a triangular exchange of fostering Fundamental Islamism against oil, the revenues of which would be placed on Wall Street.

Harriman was viewed by many Soviet leaders as more important than Stalin, and the real Czar, because the American enabled the Baku oil fields production to thrive, through massive investment providing US know-how. Many other US plutocrats played similar roles in fascist Italy, Germany and Spain. A lot of the help was provided with credit lines, nit just direct investment. Harriman was the only one to get the top honors of both the Reich and the USSR. Harriman was also the puppet master of the Democratic Party.

This world order has been in place since. It is covered up by the blanket declaration that only lunatics make theories about conspiracies, and impudent US declarations against colonialism and genocides, supposedly historically committed by the Europeans, in the grand hypocritical tradition founded by Washington and Jefferson. But actually the country that committed the greatest colonialism and genocide was the US itself (Australia and Canada are very distant second). This is why, historically speaking, the US was white and Latin America much less so.

The US strategy of favoring fascism in the 1930s was clearly evidenced in the way in which FDR treated his own ambassador in Berlin, his friend, the University of Chicago historian Dodd. Dodd, a Southerly gentleman specialist of the Secession War, and excellent friend to the French ambassador Francois-Poncet, thought the Nazis had to be fought to death, and could not be negotiated with. He so informed Roosevelt in 1937, and FDR reacted by replacing his ambassadors in Berlin and London by Nazi friendly characters (the one in London was Kennedy, father of JFK). When France made a cease-fire with the Nazis at the end of June 1940, FDR sent his right hand man, 4 star admiral William Leahy, to Vichy, thus recognizing that fascist dictatorship collaborating with Hitler as a legitimate regime (it was not).

Some will contest the very notions of conspiracies, plots, uppermost classes, social networks, plutocratic universities, corporations and corporate board class, old boys network, and how all these social connections created a US upper class which longed to help fascism and undermine democracy, knowing full well it was a win-win situation [3].  

It is a hard pill to swallow that Auschwitz and its ilk were among the deliberate costs for establishing the US world empire (the US Deep State and its media hid the holocaust the Nazis organized. Indeed, they were told explicitly by French, Polish and Jewish authorities, among others, of millions already assassinated). But, as long as reality is not faced, it can’t be improved.

Blitzkrieg: German armor, fueled by RUSSIAN oil, invades France in 1940. The proximal reason for the fall of France in May-June was the effective betrayal by the top general, Gamelin. The basic reason for the fall was that the US Deep State did its best to make it happen, including giving guarantees to France which the FDR government then ignored.

In the 1930s, obsessed by its own advancement, the US government and its pupett master, the US Deep State, betrayed democracy. It is a most brutal truth. It is also true that the Biden adminstration did not repeat the mistake in 2022. Why? Things have changed, and the confused knowledge of what went wrong in the 1930s, although the US profited from it, is slowly rising to the surface, as is the notion that, with weapons more powerful than ever, fascism, especially of the invasive type, is better nipped in the bud.

Humanity progresses, one wisdom at a time…

The US Deep State, ever since Obama day number one, has pushed frantically for transitioning to a 100% battery economy (by contrast to partly green hydrogen or nuclear). This is an example of a maneuver to cooperate with fascism, disguised as its exact opposite: more than 80% of the batteries, worldwide, are made in China; 7% in the USA. Watch what they do, not what they say they do..


[2] There was private US help to France and Britain, the best example being the fighter bomber Mustang, originally a Franco-British government contract with a private US company… The plane was so well designed from Franco-British requirements, that it became the best US fighter later.


[3].  (They will prefer to talk about the Ku Klux Klan… because the latter did not achieve to do much, in the end, and turned into a clownish distraction.).  

US COVID Experts’ Expertise: World Death Record, Towering Personal Wealth

January 16, 2022

Granted, how COVID deaths are recorded, or estimated, varies. Granted, population with more older people have higher percentage of COVID deaths. Yet, the differences worldwide are striking… and real. India, after apocalyptic predictions, went completely the other way, admittedly with a younger population, and got out of the pandemic by the end of 2021. The USA, led by the noisy privileged Dr. Fauci [0], who interacted with the Wuhan Institute of Virology in the domain of modifying bat viruses, fared worst with COVID. No argument: the numbers speak for themselves:

The USA has the world wealthiest, and most incompetent epidemiological experts, objective numbers of per capita death show. It is easy to figure out a relationshionship between wealth, corruption and deliberate incompetency. What about a criminal inquiry?

Why did this happen? Not protecting the most vulnerable populations: see “Democratic” governor Cuomo in New York, refusing the ship Mercy offered by “Republican” president Trump, and, instead stuffing back COVID patients in old folks’ homes…. where they promptly got infected and died.

Another factor has been naive overdependency on lockdowns and the efficiency of masks in confined enclosures after a few minutes. The epidemological graphs are very clear: social distancing without masks worked, but, with masks, social distancing did not work. It’s paradoxical, but logical, as a micrometric mask can’t stop a nanometric virus.

General lockdowns have not been shown to work, and have many very adverse effects. In some countries (France), citizens were prevented from accessing the grand outdoors, national parks, empty beaches, etc. Clear fascism devoid of rationality of the sort even Twentietch Century fascists never dreamed of imposing onto their own populations [1]…

For the elite establishment, the advantages of this COVID disaster have been multiple, and not just from greater profits, by getting rid of expensive workers. A foremost advantage of COVID for the elite has been the disrespect of one’s own reasoning capability stupid mandates allegedly against COVID have provided with. When something creates a good feeling, people try their best to make that something come around. Imposing fascism always makes elites feel good. COVID has been excellent that way, for the elites.

Elites have always an interest in fascizing the population, hence always favor the Authority Principle. COVID has provided an occasion to do so, in the name of health, atruism.

The general population has been inculcated with the notion that obeying blindly to very stupid orders is highly moral. Resisting such a (stupid) Authority Principle was not just immoral, illegal, “right wing”, thus racist… But even that those who resist the Authority Principle are “terrorists”. The day after I and others pointed out that nobody had been indicted for “sedition” or “insurrection” in the USA, eleven persons were charged that way (as I had predicted they would be). Including a Naval Veteran, long retired with 100% disability, an elderly gentleman who walks with a cane…

Even Harvard historians are aghast that citizens protesting the government are now charged with “terrorism”. “I’m surprised but not shocked,” Noah Feldman, a Harvard legal historian, said about the sedition charges on Thursday. “It’s a hard charge to prove. And it has this distinctive history of being used by governments who overreached in prosecuting their citizens.”

Ah, if even Harvard is turning against the establishment, that is, itself, something is happening. Distinctive history of overreach? Is the USA going the way of Putin’s Russia? In Putin’s Reich basically all opponents have been charged with “sedition”.

[0} Dr. Fauci’s household is worth more than 10.5 million dollars, in stock investments alone… and earned 1.7 million in 2020. His wife Christine Grady is the chief bio-ethicist at the National Institutes of Health (no nepotism, circulate…).

Dr. Fauci is the top-paid federal employee earning a base salary of $434,312 in 2020. Fauci is the Director of the National Institutes of Health’s (NIH) National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases (NIAID) and current Chief Medical Advisor to the President. Fauci out-earned the U.S. president ($400,000); four-star generals in the military ($282,000); and roughly 4.3 million other federal employees. 

But it does not stop there. During the pandemic year of 2020, the Fauci household income, perks and benefits, and unrealized gains totaled $1,782,807 — including federal income and benefits of $868,812; outside royalties and travel perks totaling $119,626; and investment accounts increasing by $794,369.

However, critics say that Fauci was funding research that was actually creating pandemic pathogens in labs that, if leaked or if fell into the wrong hands, might create the very human pandemic they were trying to prevent.

Something like that happened in France, with two prion deaths. France immediately closed 9 labs, as the situation is studied carefully. Prions, which are infective, chain reaction proteins, create some neurological diseases similar to Alzheimer.

The case of the wealthy Fauci household is general: the reason US health care cost so much is that the medical and pharmaceutical establishment is made of wealthy individuals… Once, long ago, a doctor made more than six million dollars, from Medicare alone… It made a scandal at the time…

[1] French authorities claimed that it was a principle of equity to not let some citizens access the outdoors when others could not. Let you, the rabble, all be poor at the same time, in the same way…

The hypocrisy was colossal, as the established elite had to respect none of that. In the United Kingdom, while the government imposed French-like fascist lockdowns, booze and maskless parties rocked 10 Downing street, the seat of the UK government, one after the other, and ministers evaded restrictions. The UK Prime Minister, opportunisitic Brexiter Johnson, presented his apology to the plutocrat-in-chief, the Queen (sorry, your highness, to have shown our privileged hand to the rabble).

In the USA, the abundance of the private jet industry, with 1.2 million employees, was in no way affected by all the lockdown silliness imposed on the bleating plebs. Exclusive ski resorts blossomed.

Abstract: Expected rise of temperature in mountains correspond to a seven degree C rise. This informs global heating: in the long run, it will also be 7C. Large systems (Antarctica, Greenland) have greater thermal inertia, so their temperatures rise slower… But they will rise as much. In other words the so-called “forcing” by man-made greenhouse gases (which corresponds to 600 ppm of CO2) is universal, but the smaller the system, the faster the temperature rise


Geographical systems with little thermal inertia (mountain glaciers) show an accelerated rate of heating of these parts which is only compatible with a seven (7) degrees rise in Celsius by 2100… A rise the IPCC of the UN considers impossible… But INERTIA says that it IS happening. The first thing this implies is that most forests will burn… worldwide. Then the ice shelves in Antarctica will follow.


Anybody familiar with mountains worldwide know that temperatures are rising extremely fast: large glaciers I used to know have completely disappeared.. As in Chacaltaya, Bolivia. Or Portage, Alaska. The closest glacier to an Alpine village I went to as a child has been replaced by a larch forest (melezes)… One reason for this is that mountains are smaller in frozen mass than immense ensembles like Greenland and Antarctica. Moreover, the mountains’ permafrost is not as cold.  

From 1984 to 2017, the upper reaches of the fires in the Sierra Nevada of California rose more than 1,400 feet. Now the temperature in the lower atmosphere decreases by 7C every 1,000 meters. There are many potential factors to explain why fires go higher (although some contradict each other). To avoid paralysis by analysis, I will assume the rise in fires is all due to temperature rise. So what we have here is a 2.5C rise in 33 years.


Mountain thermal capacity is accordingly reduced relative to those of Greenland and Antarctica. The proportionality factors are gigantic. Say the permafrost of a mountain range is of the order of 10^4 square kilometers, at a depth of one kilometer (typical of the Sierra Nevada of California or the Alps at a temp of -3C. By comparison, Antarctica is 14x 10^6 sq km at a depth of 4 kilometers of permafrost at a temp of -30C. Thinking in greater depth reveals the proportions to be even greater: individual mountains are of the order of square kilometers [1]. This means that (using massively simplified lower bounds), Antarctica has a mass of cold which is at least 4 orders of magnitude higher than a mountain range: to bring Antarctica to seriously melt, as mountain ranges are right now, would require at least 10,000, ten thousand times, as much heat (or maybe even a million, or more, when considering individual mountains).  

As it is, mountains are exposed to a heat bath which makes their permafrost unsustainable. From their small thermal inertia, mountains warm up quickly. Greenland and Antarctica, overall, are exposed to the same bath, the same “forcing”, but because they are gigantic and gigantically cold, they resist more: they warm up, but much slower (moreover as warmer air carries more snow, it snows more while Antarctica warms up).

I have looked, in details at glaciologists records, from the US to Europe… Everywhere glaciologists say the same thing: expect a rise of the permafrost line of 1,000 meters… That corresponds to a SEVEN DEGREE CENTIGRADE RISEBasically, while glaciers were found down to 2,500 meters in the Alps (some can still be seen in caves)… Expect that, in a few decades, none will occur below 3,500 meters… Thus speak the specialists, the glaciologists…

Mount Hood, Oregon, in August 1901 on the left, and August 2015, on the right. The Eliot glacier, front and center, which used to sprawl for miles, is in the process of disappearing completely

What is happening then, when most climate scientists speak of holding the 1.5 C line (obviously completely impossible, even if humanity stopped emitting CO2 immediately)???… Or when they admit that we are on a 2.7C future in 2100? Well, those scientists have been captured by the establishment… They say what ensure their prosperous careers… At a global rise of 2.7 C, we get a migration of the permafrost line of around 500 kilometers towards the poles… Catastrophic, yes, but still, Antarctica will not obviously start to melt, big time.

At 7C, the melting of the surrounding of Antarctica, including destabilization of West Antarctica, and the Aurora and Wilkes Basin can’t be avoided… They hold around 25 meters of sea level rise….

If it came to light that a seven degree centigrade rise is a real possibility, authorities would turn around and really do some things, which may destabilize the worldwide plutocratic establishment: carbon tariffs are an obvious example. Carbon tariffs could be imposed next week… and they would have a big impact of the CO2 production. So why are carbon tariffs not imposed? Carbon tariffs would destabilize the deindustrialization gravy train: by employing who are basically slaves in poor countries, plutocrats make themselves ever wealthier, while making sure there would be no insurrection at home… A trick already used in imperial Rome, by the Senatorial aristocracy/plutocracy. That would be highly effective… By the way, without saying so, of course, and maybe even unwittingly, this is basically what Trump had started to do…

The devil has these ways which the commons do not possess…

That would stop the crafty, dissembling nonsense that countries such as France are at 4.6 tons per capita of CO2 emissions per year… That’s only true when all the CO2 emitted to produce the goods the French need is NOT counted.. including deforestation in Brazil to grow soybean. With them counted, one gets to 11 tons or so, more than double… The wonderful graph of CO2 emissions collapsing in Europe is the same graph as collapsing industrial production…

The devil has these ways the commons have not even detected…

Carbon tariffs would be a way to solve two wrongs in one shot: the wrong of deindustrialization, of corrupt pseudo-leaders not putting the most advanced countries, their own countries, first… And the wrong of producing too much CO2.

Little fixes will go a long way, as long as they incorporate hefty financing fundamentally researching new energy (it does not really matter which type, as long as it is fundamental…)

The 1609 CALAMITY: Founded The USA, Tempered By France

August 3, 2021

The 1609 Mental CALAMITY, Was Tempered By France’s Very Different Approach to Colonization and Human Rights. An Ongoing Project.

The biggest lie in the history of America is that the mentality of the founders and investors of the Jamestown colony of 1609, and that of their dependents, the Puritans of the Mayflower, was not a calamity for humanity. 1609 was genocidal and enslaving, with the goal of maximum profits, justifying the worst horrors… such as the formal introduction of slavery by 1619… for Africans… Actually correspondence of white masters among themselves showed that they referred to their indentured white servants as “slaves” (this is the word they used).

All the while the 1609 mentality hid behind the Bible, its convenient “chosen people” mantra, its jealous, genocidal god, and its military solutions for ecological limitations. (The latter is also found in writing. After pandemics had rolled through Virginia, Captain Smith marveled in the 1620s that “the whole country lays open before us“.

That 1609 mentality was not invented in America, but by the initial investors of the Virginia Company. They had made a fortune in Ireland, using quasi-genocidal means (the alley to the governor’s castle was lined up with Irish skulls…). The bloody conquest of Ireland by vicious plutocrats known as the West Country Men made them much more powerful and basically enabled them to also control of England… their next project was to establish colonies in the Americas; one of those West Country Men, Sir Francis Drake, died in Panama, trying to grab land from the Spanish; his friends went on with Jamestown, helped by the English military and the investor in chief, King James of England. 

The 1609 mentality considered that non militarily-authorized relationships of English colons with the Natives was a capital crime punished most atrociously by drawing and quartering the English traitors, no less. The Natives noticed and the father of Pocahontas deplored that the English refused to marry with his tribe. Along the same lines, the Puritans killed an entire English colony, around what is now the Boston area, because those “rough fellows” there had married Native women. An empowering mentality of the 1609 calamity was to make whatever eroded racism into a crime… a crime often punished by execution.

Two French armies and one French fleet, helped by general Washington’s continental army, won the world war known as the US war of independence, 1775-1783… Ten percent of dead soldiers in the US war of independence were French. Here a representation of French headquarters at Yorktown, with general Washington in attendance. Cornered by the French, besieged by French miners, blocked by admiral D’Estaing, pounded by long ranger French guns, the British army was made to surrender at Yorktown, ending the war.

The ultra-exploitative mentality of 1609 was fortunately somewhat corrected by the French intervention in the American war of independence, which injected a more civilized approach to progress…

For example, La Fayette tried to persuade, for years, verbally and in writing, his good friend Washington to outlaw slavery. Washington replied by flattering La Fayette for his great sense of humanity. La Fayette had played an outstanding role in persuading the French government to spend 5 trillion 2020 dollars in fighting Britain in America to create the USA. La Fayette, as a general, had led one of the two French armies which converged on Yorktown and forced the surrender of the British army.

The French 1789 Human Rights Declaration gave equality, freedom, and the right to vote to all men. It made the American owners look avaricious, petty, and as the slave masters they were… And showed to all the hypocrisy of the American master class. Slave trading had been made unlawful in France by Merovingian queen Bathilde in… 657 CE.

The gentler French approach to the colonization of America was less oriented towards enabling a few individuals and corporations to make huge profits, and become the law of the land. Thus, for example, the French would trade with the Natives, rather than exterminate them. The French would pay for furs, not scalps. This is of course also why the French failed and the English won the Seven Years world war (1756-1763)… at least until 1776… when the French instigation to rebellion bore fruit in America.

In a different context, the story of the virtuous too virtuous to fight efficiently for virtue keeps on repeating itself. This would happen in 1914-1917, and 1939-1941, when the USA refused to fight against racist fascism… by making up story of self-glorifying imaginary virtues (such as “pacifism” of racist president Wilson, who actually loved Prussian racism, and encouraged the Kaiser to go to war, thereafter facilitating said Prussian racist attack on the world… Or when in 1939, the US took sanctions against Britain and France for having declared war to Nazi Germany…)

New France did not exterminate the Natives… In contrast, the English colony had official extermination policies…. The relative goodness of New France contributed to its dominance by the Natives, hence its weakness. Lesser evil in New France ultimately caused its downfall to much greater evil…

Nobel Prize laureate Churchill said that he wrote “The Gathering Storm” to show:

“…how the malice of the wicked was reinforced by the weakness of the virtuous; how the structure and habits of democratic States, unless they are welded into larger organisms, lack those elements of persistence and conviction which can alone give security to humble masses; how, even in matters of self-preservation … the counsels of prudence and restraint may become the prime agents of mortal danger … [how] the middle course adopted from desires for safety and a quiet life may be found to lead direct to the bull’s-eye of disaster.

Nevertheless, the gentler French approach made a lasting impression on America (all the way down to Critical Race Theory, originally a French creation). The gentler roots of America, contradicting the deliberate evil of the founders of the English Colony of Jamestown, Massachussets, etc., did not just bring schizophrenia in North American culture. Ultimately, slavery was outlawed. The more civilized French mentality is bearing fruits to this day, and this is why the French help in creating America, and its more egalitarian and freedom loving orientation, is underemphasized by the contemporary ruling US plutocracy… which prefers to concentrate on exploitation, no holds barred, and with no benign hedonism in the way. As an anecdote, the more positive aspects of Critical Race Theory were invented in France, long before taking hold of US universities… France has also taken a very affirmative action against the greenhouse heating, with only one fifteenth (1/15) of the emissions of the US, thanks to carbon taxes, etc… And the French Republic has been at the forefront of taxing those tax havens… which make plutocrats that much wealthier and influential…

Thus, in a sense, the US war of independence against the plutocrats is still going on…

The 1609 Project: Cancel Culture And People, Maximize Profits

March 6, 2021

… Profits for the few that is…

Identity politics is tribalism by another name. Tribalism is as old as apes cancelling others for territory. Tribalism fosters simple-mindedness, cancellation, alienation, hatred, annihilation. Jane Goodall found it was systematic when chimpanzees interacted with other groups. Tribalism is the opposite of the open society and the most human activity, debate. It’s as inhuman as it gets.

As I show here, identity politics covers up its true aim, the advancement of the mentality that institutionalized the worst angels of our nature in the US power structure.

Identity politics built the US. In 1609 the English colony was a venture capital firm with state military assistance, the aim of which was gold and extermination of the Natives. Tobacco rendered profitable by inhuman slavery made the English colony profitable in the first half of the Seventeenth Century, creating a virtuous circle calling for ever more slaves. 

The English colony divided the population into indentured servants, red, black, white, slaves, slave owners, Protestants, Catholics, Jews, property owners, and “races” with no rights. Punishment was severe: English colonists going to the Indians were condemned to death, executed by quartering alive. 

The “Market” was “free” to proceed with “creative destruction”, buying and selling people and territory which white men did not own (that tradition continued until the late nineteenth century, when the US offered lots of 10,000 acres next to railroads, to… white men). Result? The American Natives were mostly exterminated… Exterminating most of the Natives is something that happened nowhere else in the world to that extent (except in Australia, also a British colony; in Tasmania, the Natives were exterminated to the last). 

Romans said:”Divide et impera”… Divide and command absolutely. Alienating and alienated identities divide. Who rules and commands (impera) then? The wealthiest families, controlling, and, or, owning all the media in the USA in particular, and the West in general, including Internet social networks. Liberty, Equality, Debate are their enemies.

Identity politics is how the USA was won: by cancelling the “wrong” “identities”, increasing the profits, thus the power, of the exterminators. It is the opposite of how France was created, 15 centuries ago. The Franks, who were originally German, integrated all the Gallo-Romans, accepted all religions and identities, equally, and then outlawed slavery.

The present cancel culture festering in the USA is more of the same alienation, tribalism, violence and destruction, to serve the owners. Far from being a rebellion against the established order, it serves it.

Patrice Ayme

1619. Coming of Africans. But whites and natives had been enslaved and exterminated in the prior decade, setting the tune.

Slavery in the USA, to the extent it happened, was a unique phenomenon. Thus, to speak about a European slavery problem is to divert attention to a secondary problem: although some European slave traders profited from the slave trade, and all Europeans enjoyed tobacco and sugar (and thus shortened life spans from these drugs), most of the profiteering from slavery and its institutions and associated constitutional structures was by white English speaking Americans… the same descendants of whom are giving lessons now.


P/S: A much milder version of the preceding comment was sent to New York Times in answer to:

Is This the End of French Intellectual Life?
The country’s culture of argument has come under the sway of a more ideological, more identity-focused model imported from the United States.
By Christopher Caldwell. (Mr. Caldwell is a contributing opinion writer and the author of “Reflections on the Revolution In Europe: Immigration, Islam and the West” and “The Age of Entitlement: America Since the Sixties.”)

Mr. Caldwell did not publish my comment, nor any of the short and factual answers I made to other comments. This is a deliberate usage of vicious power to kill debate, which should be illegal (the NYT has state given privileges). Including the following correction, after it was asserted that France did not have female intellectuals:

There are several famous contemporary French intellectuals who are women, including the president of the French academy.

France has of course an immense tradition of female intellectuals, including the most important head of state ever:

@ES The French monarch, Queen Bathilde, outlawed slavery in 655 CE. As the “Renovated Roman Empire” of the Franks conquered Europe, slavery was outlawed all over Europe.

The article and its comments accused France of racism. The question is not whether racism was a force in the past. In truth, racism is, institutionally speaking, an English, and by extension, and reinforced, US invention. Neither Rome nor France had racist laws (with the ephemeral exception of laws passed against Jews under Saint Louis, Louis IX… Ironically and tellingly enough)  

The following comment was also blocked:

@rlschles Allegations of racism  against France have been used by the racist US elite, which ruled thanks to racist laws (that France never had). The US elite is much more abusive than the french one, and is afraid of LEF, Liberty, Equality, Fraternity. Hence its drive to disparage France (which does not have slavery since 655 CE, 14 centuries ago, at least formally)

What is going on? The New York Times is at the core of the US plutocratic establishment Its principal enemy is then LEF, Liberty Equality Fraternity. France was against the invasion of Iraq, and tried to block it. There was then a war between the New York Times and France. Now that the Iraq invasion president is ruling the USA, the New York Times is redoubling its efforts to destroy LEF. Catwell knows very well that I am for LEF, so he bans me. This is serious, it’s a war. It looks superficial like that, but, as during World War Two, it could end up with dozens of millions killed. No, the USA is not going to attack France. But the US elite is making it so to encourage others to go tribal, and that’s where future war lays. The NYT is telling Xi, the Chinese president, implicitly: go ahead, go tribal, you have the support of the USA… Go invade Taiwan… That’s your “identity right”. Then of course, there would be a big war. Guess who would come on top? Yes, the US plutocratic class, same as in 1945…


Here are extracts from the NYT article describing what is, from my perspective, triumphant intellectual, political and economic fascism:

After waging a decades-long twilight struggle against these movements, Le Débat has lost.

Intellectuals of all persuasions have been debating what that defeat means for France, and they have reached a conclusion: The country’s intellectual life has come under the sway of a more ideological, more identity-focused model imported from the United States.

Le Débat was always resistant to American imports. It never fully made its peace with the free market in the way that self-described social democrats in America did under Bill Clinton. Nor did it climb aboard the agenda of humanitarian invasions and democracy promotion, as left-leaning American intellectuals like Paul Berman and George Packer did. That was all fine.


The NYT turns me into an ally of Macron (should be rather vice versa, as I started decades ago…)

NYT: “Many French people see American-style social-justice politics as a change for the worse. President Emmanuel Macron does. In the wake of the death of George Floyd in police custody last spring, protests and riots across America brought the dismantling of statues and other public symbols — sometimes on the spot, sometimes after further campaigning and agitation. Aware that such actions had found a sympathetic echo among some of his fellow citizens, Mr. Macron warned that France would not follow suit. “It will not erase any trace or name from its history,” he said. “It will not forget any of its works. It will not topple any statues.”

By last fall Mr. Macron was also inveighing against foreign university traditions. “I’m thinking of the Anglo-Saxon tradition, which has another history, and it is not ours,” he said, before singling out “certain social-science theories imported from the United States of America.””


Debate is directly under attack, as a mental principle:

NYT: “To look at how Le Débat unraveled is to see that these tensions have been developing for years, if not decades. They bode poorly for the future of intellectual life in France — and elsewhere.

Not all what the NYT says is incorrect. The best lies are made with lots of truth therein. NYT: “Marcel Gauchet, is a philosopher of democracy and a historian of religion. Totalitarianism, and how to find a politics of the left that avoided it, absorbed Mr. Nora and Mr. Gauchet both.

Mr. Gauchet, for instance, has studied with alarm the slow ouster of democratic principles by the very different principles of human rights. “The touchstone in the system,” he warned in 2007, “is no longer the sovereignty of the people but the sovereignty of the individual, defined, ultimately, by the possibility of overruling the collective authority.” Human rights, often imposed by courts or centralized administrative bodies, could wind up pitting democracy against itself. 


Another perspective that is entirely correct is found in the NYT analysis. NYT: “The first sign in France of a politics focused on minority groups came in 1984. Activists close to the government of François Mitterrand sought to address the complex problem of assimilating France’s mostly North African immigrants by founding an American-style activist group called SOS Racisme. Le Débat reacted in 1993 by publishing a skeptical book by the sociologist Paul Yonnet. SOS Racisme was not replacing a stuffy idea of race with a hip one, Mr. Yonnet argued; it was introducing race theories into a country where they had lately been weak or absent, ethnicizing newcomers and natives alike, and encouraging the French to look at the minority groups in their midst (Jews, in particular) as somehow foreign.”


NYT:”Mr. Gauchet, Ms. Agacinski and many others in their intellectual circle have not changed their politics. Rather they have been outbid by radicals offering a more exciting, if not necessarily more rigorous, critique of society.


NYT:”One questions the “legitimacy”… Where did this very un-French attitude come from?an answer: America. A few days after announcing that the review would publish no more, Mr. Nora spoke about its closing on Alain Finkielkraut’s radio show. Mr. Finkielkraut was pointing to disturbing tendencies in French intellectual life, but Mr. Nora wanted to take the conversation in a different direction: to the “mouvements à l’américaine” that start on campuses across the ocean and tend to show up in France. “What they call,” he said, “to follow the argument to its logical conclusion, cancel culture, which is to say the extermination of culture, the will to. …

Here Mr. Nora paused before continuing: “Anyway, I daresay some of us are old enough to have echoes in our heads of Goebbels when he said, ‘When I hear the word “culture” I reach for my revolver.’”

[Actually it was not Goebbels, but in a Nazi play with the following memorable: “No, let ’em keep their good distance with their whole ideological kettle of fish … I shoot with live ammunition! When I hear the word culture …, I release the safety on my Browning!” Notice that the gun is a US made gun, a “Browning”, because it’s US plutocracy which armed the Nazis, with contraband weapons”]


Cluelessly the ignorant brutes at the NYT observe: “The Goebbels quote may be apocryphal, but it is worth pausing to ask why Mr. Nora — born in the first half of the 20th century and preoccupied with the moral legacy of World War II — should call such a name to mind when discussing the influence of American culture on his own country’s.

Yes, vicious idiots, it is your party, the US plutocrats, the equivalent of whom the Romans used to call the “Optimates”, the “Best”, which gave the weapons to the Nazis! Precisely! As I just said. But of course the NYT blocked hundreds of my comments explaining this, so it can keep on pretending that only idiots would say this.


NYT: ““There is a mighty ideological wave coming from the United States,” the philosopher Yves Charles Zarka wrote last fall in an article about the death of Le Débat. “It brings rewriting history, censuring literature, toppling statues, and imposing a racialist vision of society.” Nor is it as iconoclastic as it looks, according to Luc Ferry, a philosopher and conservative columnist. “However anticapitalist and anti-American they may think themselves,” he wrote last year, “these activists are only aping whatever has been going on on campuses across the Atlantic over the last four decades.”


And the lying plutocratic New York Times to conclude, mixing the true, the ludicrous, the vicious, the real and the imaginary:

The shoe used to be on the other foot. The United States used to learn a lot from France. Until a generation ago, into the age of Michel Foucault and Jacques Derrida, one could say America deferred to France on matters intellectual. It doesn’t any longer. The demise of Le Débat was marked by not a single mention in any major American newspaper or magazine.

There are still lessons Americans can learn from France, provided we approach it with the right questions in mind. A good one to start with might be whether the American academy of recent decades — with the culture it carries and the political behaviors it fosters — has been, in the wider world, a force for intellectual freedom or for its opposite.

Well, dear fascists, and obscene censors, what you are doing called intellectual fascism, and the day you see thermonuclear suns rising over your cities, don’t say the others came for you, they came from you. In particular, you are teaching Mr. Xi that he is right, and democracy is wrong, that the debate is wrong. There is only one way out of that: violent mass death.

If The USA Had Been Decent, Would The Nazis Have Disturbed The Peace?

November 10, 2019

History follows some paths. There could have been others. Just as with thought experiments in physics, inquiring minds inquire best by weighting the factors, making thought experiments in history (all historians have always done this, to an extent or the other, connecting the dots). The most interesting and instructive weighting of the facts occur when one changes nearly nothing, and one changes events slightly according to not just plausible, but probable scenarios. (The military learns much by running “what ifs” scenarios, and does this all the time [1]). It turns out that history is full of butterfly effects, where a small fluttering somewhere has giant effect after a while (the weather is notoriously that way with a three week horizon). Therein a morale: if one wants history to enfold optimally, looking forward, one should not neglect the utmost precautions. Including the fact that too much precaution can kill precaution, if one doesn’t understand the underground logic at hand.

This is what happened in Nazi Germany, when the army command tried to reintroduce rationality: it didn’t work, because they had missed the evil design of the Anglo-Saxon Deep State, and its attached plutocracy.

Ludwig Beck, a real hero in his belated struggle against Hitler, but too trusting of the Anglo-Saxon elite. Beck was chief of the German army and, from pro-Nazi, turned into an anti-Nazi conscious of the madness of Hitler and Al. He directed his subordinates, including the top admirals, to propose to the Americans and the British to announce that the USA and the UK would side with France in case of conflict with the Nazis. He was going to use this as a pretext to make a coup against the Nazis. Instead the US and UK warned Hitler of the conspiracy. Fired by Hitler, who couldn’t do more than that, as Beck’s prestige was immense, he organized behind the scene the coup of 1944. He was asked to commit suicide.

The question was asked: If the US joined the League of Nations, would WWII have occurred?

Let me change the question slightly into: If the US had respected its parent, France, and practiced other aspects of basic decency of a civilized nation, as its Gallic parent had tried to instill to it, would WWII have occurred? Or, otherwise said: If The USA had Been Decent, Would The Nazis Have Disturbed the Peace?

The short of it: no.

World War Two happened because the French Republic had more than enough with the Nazis. The French had been itching to go destroy Hitler since the latter invaded Spain in 1936 (with the help of the rogue Franco, and fascist Italy). However, after agreeing to come to the rescue of the Spanish Republic, the French, led by PM Jewish Socialist Blum, were submitted to scathing threats from London and Washington, so they didn’t. Then there was the Munich circus, followed by Hilter invading Czechoslovakia, Austria… 

After the fall of Spain (early 1939), the French stiffened the Polish spine, and added a chastised Great Britain in the appendix to the Franco-Polish treaty (“entente cordiale would apply…) Cornered, an enraged Hitler made his ultra secret alliance with fellow dictator Stalin official. Surely, now confronting fascist Japan, Italy, Germany and the USSR, the French won’t attack? But the French were undeterred. At that point the Nazis were stuck. They couldn’t lose face: Hitler knew that the German generals had nearly staged a coup already.

What could have stopped the war? Those German generals: they had all the power. Had the USA declared it sided with France, the generals would have known they were facing the infernal trio of France, Britain and their progeny, the USA, and, thus, Germany couldn’t win. So they had to stage a coup to save Germany, as they explained in 1937 to the Anglo-Saxon ambassadors.

However the position of the USA in 1939 relative to Nazism was not clear: plutocrat FDR detested egalitarian, socialist France, and wanted to grab all her colonies to make them part of the US empire. Moreover US plutocrats were roaming all over Germany doing excellent business under Hitler, owning a large part of it: IBM had the monopoly of computing, for example, a gift of Hitler (see “IBM and the Holocaust”). Finally, the US was a racist country, and much of Nazism was copied from US themes.


The very idea of League of Nation was born in France in 1916 (and then co-opted by hyper racist Wilson). So the entire US “isolationist” posture, which didn’t apply to Nazi Germany (the “Third Reich” was full of US plutocrats, US investments, US tech, etc.) was more directed against France, and an excuse for the US to deal with Germany as a new “Wild West“… like the myth of the “crippling” reparations, launched by racist plutocrat Keynes, who was enraged that Eastern Europe had been freed from Germany by Versailles… (the reparations were so little “crippling” that the French are still rebuilding, more than a century after the fascist German invaders dismantled even treasures of the Middle Ages…)

To be in the League, per se, would not have been enough, to prevent WW2. However, had the USA being just decent with its parent, France, the German generals would have seen their defeat was unavoidable, as the USA was siding with France.

And guess what, as I already said, but it’s worth repeating? The German generals, and admirals, led by a fierce colonel who wanted to overthrow Hitler, and, initially more loosely, by chief of staff Ludwig Beck, who was pro-Nazi in 1930 [2], asked, as early as 1937, the UK and US, to do just that, declare they would side with France. But they didn’t. Instead, the Anglo-Saxons told Hitler… And FDR recalled his friend Dodd, US ambassador in Berlin, an ex-history professor, viewed as too friendly to his French peer, and a determined anti-Nazi. FDR replaced Dodd by a pro-Nazi, and did the same in Britain, installing the notoriously pro-fascist plutocrat mafioso Joe Kennedy as ambassador there… (More details on the Dodd-Francois-Poncet interaction in the book “The Garden of the Beasts”…)

The German generals, as a collective mind, were not smart enough to realize they were going to become victims of the greatest bait and switch imaginable… Although the same exactly had happened to Germany in WW1… (The USA encouraged the Kaiser to attack, and then sustained him, until it became clear that France and Britain were going to win, then switched sides…)

Nowadays, the Germans have finally figured it all out, deep inside… Just as the Brits lost it completely… History is the ride that never ends…

The most amazing part of this subject is that many individuals who believe they know it well, actually keep on repeating the basic Nazi themes (hence my re-education program)…

And, even more interesting, those themes often only partly originated in Germany… Keynes launched the idea that returning Eastern Europe to self-determination was a racial and economic mistake. Even the famous “stab in the back” theme the Nazis used as a pretext against Communists, Socialists, and Jews, had been uttered first by a British general who had lashed back sarcastically at war criminal general and principal original Nazi, Ludendorff… Ludendorff ran away with that theme…  A way to bury his own war crimes under fresh layers of invented indignation…

The myth of the “crippling reparations” exacted by France and Belgium in a spirit of wanton revenge was launched… And survives to this day. Actually the “reparations” amounted to only 5 trillion of 2018 Euros. One out of twenty Frenchman had been killed, in a war cold bloodily launched by fascist Germany. So, roughly the “reparation” amounted to 800,000 Euros by dead Frenchman. That gross computation doesn’t count 4.3 million wounded, including hundreds of thousands mutilated for life. The industrial north east of France had been eradicated in deliberate devastation designed to cripple France. 

Ah, relevance for today? If one can’t still see the manipulations of the plutocrats and their associated Deep State, a century ago, how could one see them today?

Indeed, the fact the deep maneuvers of the US Deep State and its sponsor, US plutocracy, the billionaires and their descendants hidden in Foundations, Boards, Institutes, “Charities”, “Think Tanks”, plutocratic universities and the like, have not been exposed in full, doesn’t just explain the amazing (however ephemeral) success of the monstrosity known as Nazism.

More fundamentally, the obliviousness, and lack of interest, in the maneuvers of the Deep State and its sponsor, Anglo-Saxon plutocracy, explains much of the rise of global plutocracy and its attendant inequality, poverty, drug abuse, decay in education, healthcare and many basic services observed since…

Patrice Ayme



P/S: If I use the expression “Deep State” in the plutophile New York Times, it will censor the comment: We The People in the present day USA have been imprinted to believe that, should they see a conspiracy somewhere, and a fortiori a machine to create conspiracies, one is deranged… BTW, it’s the US Senate which blocked the entry of the USA in the League of Nations… Roughly simultaneously, all the documents revealing the theft of German property by the US government, and its transfer to US plutocrats, conveniently burned with a building in Washington in 1921 (so US Plutos stayed in control of German property they had stolen, thereafter… enabling them to steer Nazis) .

For the mood at work, have a glance at this, from 1943:


[1] Famously, re-runs of the 1940 Battle of France and Midway, give opposite results to what happened. In both cases, huge forces which should have been detected were not.


[2] Ludwig Beck, in a series of memos to the top Nazis and Hitler in May 1938: “The French army is and remains intact and is at the moment the strongest in Europe… The military-economic situation of Germany is bad, worse than in 1917–1918. In its current military, military-political and military-economic condition, Germany cannot expose itself to the risk of a long war…

Furthermore the chief of the German general staff cannot “accept these estimates of the military power of France and England…Germany, whether alone or in alliance with Italy, is not in a position militarily to match England or France. The May Crisis of 21–22 May 1938 further convinced Beck of the dangers of going to war in 1938, and led him to increase his efforts to stop a war that he felt Germany could not win. In November 1938, Beck informed a friend that, from the time of the May Crisis, the only consideration in his mind was “How can I prevent a war?”

On 29 July 1938, Beck wrote a memo stating the German Army had the duty to prepare for possible wars with foreign enemies and “for an internal conflict which need only take place in Berlin” [against the Nazis, that is]. The 29 July 1938 memo is considered the start of Beck’s efforts to overthrow the Nazi regime. However, Beck would resign too early, and alone, and Hitler manipulated him in keeping the resignation secret…

Europe United States’ (Of America!) What Deep Greek and Frankish History Teaches On Brexit Pettiness

September 17, 2019

Brexit repeats a mood of enmity from hysteria and pettiness, seen in Ancient Greece, feeding Greek hatred for Greeks. That self-defeating obsession was Greece’s undermining, enabling Rome to subjugate Greek mindfulness with Roman greed. Greece subjugation, when not outright annihilation, brought, in turn, two millennia of fascism and plutocracy, thereafter, having forgotten what democracy truly is.

However, the Greeks had the excuse of variegated origins, and the intrusion of an alien superpower, Rome. Instead, right now the USA and the Europe have a common origin, the latter being not just parent of the former, but having long been one superpower made of bits and pieces. Common Euro-American origin undermines the division ideology, not just because we don’t want to go down the Greco-Roman, dog eats dog suicidal slippery slope, but also because this common origin deprives division of its motivation.


Empires are a fact. Not just a theory, but a fact. “Empire” means the government is endowed with imperium, a powerful, sometimes lethal command of elected authority. It does not necessarily mean fascist dictatorship. The Roman Republic was an empire, before it got rotten, fascist, mass exterminating and inhuman. The USA is certainly an empire, and a representative democracy, and nearly a direct democracy in California. Empires present advantages, by breaking down barriers, and petty local regulations, corruption, creating big markets, powerful defense, etc. Ancient Greece failed because it failed to constitute an empire. Athens tried, and failed, because of the plutocratic alliance of Sparta and Persia. A century later, Macedonian plutocracy imposed plutocracy to Athens. Later, while Greek city states fought each other, Rome came in, and annihilated Corinth, viewed as too democratic because it was fighting Sparta. Then Rome proceeded to reduce all of Greece into slavery (with a few tiny counterexamples, to justify the rest).

This shows only a fraction of the Greek world (which extended to Egypt, Libya, Crimea, Georgia, etc.) Moreover the map itself oversimplifies. For example Thessaly, in blue, south of green Macedonia, was, itself, a CONFEDERATION of cities. So this is a map of confederation, mostly! So far, so good, but they were actually fighting each other. So cities with, say 20,000 citizens, fought each other… And the Roman legions showed up. Republican Rome in 150 BCE had a population of at least three million, and that expanded enormously, by a factor of ten, as many states (say other Italians, Provincia (“Provence”), Africa, Iberia) became part of the empire. With a demography at least 40 times the most populous Greek city-state, Athens, Rome could do whatever its increasingly brutish instincts told it to do with Greek civilization. Civilizationally speaking, Rome, relative to Greece, was a big noise and fury, signifying nothing… Had the Greeks being federalized, with a Greek army, Rome could not have subdued them. But that was completely impossible: cities such as Sparta and Athens had just the love of (their own) freedom in common… Whereas the USA is the child of France and Britain 

There was no Ancient Greek empire, because the Greeks were too busy developing crazed out peculiarities, and putting lots of pride in this… similar to Brexiters. The ancient Greeks were obsessed by their little selves and quirks [1]. A Greek empire could have instilled some reason, and enabled ancient Greek civilization, the most advanced to survive. Same nowadays in Europe.

For example, Great Britain is corrupt. Corrupt in a way peculiar to Great Britain. Thus, being part of a larger ensemble may enable the UK to come out of this corruption. Indeed, the EU tried to make Great Britain less corrupt, but the corrupt ones rebelled, and, through their dominance of the minds of their unenlightened subjects, got them to decide against their best interest.

113,000 potential taxpayers are living in Britain while also being a ‘non-domiciled’ in the U.K… as far as taxes are concerned. Those extremely wealthy individuals control the UK media… to the point even intelligent Brits don’t know any better.

Tax avoidance by the global elite is eating the world’s social structure with extreme inequality. It was high time to do something about it within Europe, starting with the most egregious behavior.

EU member states have until 31 December 2019 to make this sort of blatant tax avoidance scheme by plutocrats illegal in their own national law. British plutocrats paying tax? Unimaginable! God save the queen of tax evasion!

This tax evasion is the driving force behind Brexit: the advocates of Brexit, pigeons paid by some of the world’s richest individuals have imprinted millions of parrots, who love to imagine themselves as “Non-Doms”. Why isn’t this motivation advertised more?

Why? Consider France: the media there is owned by plutocrats too, just as in the UK, and they have huge tax avoidance schemes in place as laws in the tax system. If the Pluts were stupid enough to call attention to the non-Dom reason for Brexit, they would bring along a mood questioning tax avoidance schemes in general…. and in particular, the schemes contrived in the legal system they profit from…

British Plutocracy Hates Losing Its Tax Advantages, hence Came To Hate Europe. And made sure to make the minds of the British that way, through its control of media. We The People should control control of the media by the few and wealthiest. It is a case where absolute control is needed.

The world is divided in empires, and some are vassal to others. One empire is dominant: the USA. One recently decided to be uppity: China. It’s put back into its proper place by its former sponsor, the USA.

The European UNION is an empire, yet just a subsidiary of the USA, and will stay that way forever, just as parents become dependent upon their child. A standing alone UK would be even more of a US puppet.

The present world picture is enlightened by considering what happened in the Middle Ages, or in Ancient Greece. In the Middle Ages, the two superpowers, England, the child, and “France”, the parent, were in conflict. The kings of Francia, a number of Valois, versus the Plantagenets, the guys who planted genets… It was a big mess, roaring about, signifying nothing.

The EU is a confederation vassal to the USA, similar to the “free” Greek Confederacies, themselves made of many city-states, vassal to Rome in the First and Second Centuries, BCE. The UK breaking away from the EU is similar to a Greek city-state separating from the Confederacy it belonged to. It happened many times, fostering divisions among the Greeks… thereafter to be gobbled up by Roman fascism…   Brexit is more of this petty hysterical nationalism which characterized the Greeks, while Rome was thinking universally…

However, on second, deeper inspection, the relationship between France, Britain, Germany, the USA (and their ideological satellites, including Australia and Italy) is not as in between Greek city-states, or Greece and Rome. Indeed Greek city-states had just one language, but various origins.

And Rome was still something else, tracing itself to Ilion (Troy). Whereas, in the “West”, all can be traced to Celts, Romans and Greece, through the gauntlet of the Franks (Imperium Francorum, by 800 CE the Renovated Roman Empire, RRE).

Things get even more complicated, when one realizes that France and Britain, in a number of ways, gave birth to the USA.

Now, indeed, the Greeks brought to the Romans knowledge, and even the alphabet (through “Magna Grecia”,as in Neopolis, “Naples”, to the south). So this way, Greece gave birth to Rome, intellectually speaking.

But in Western Europe, most of the Greco-Roman law, organization, moods, let alone language, and religion, survived through the Franks, and then drove the unification of Europe, complete by 800-1066 CE. See the Franks conquering all of Germany by 800 CE, and Eastern Europe, finding silver there, thus relaunching a currency economy, which Rome didn’t have enough precious metal to run; see the Franks conquer England by 1066 CE, and freeing the slaves… Or conquering Sicily against the Muslims, a few years later.

This is this united Europe, yet fighting with itself, which gave birth to the USA. As I said, even when fighting itself, as Greece was fighting itself, Europe was much more united than Ancient Greece, because of the common Greco-Roman-Frankish origin: the Greeks never had any such unification event: even when they went to attack Ilion/Troy, that was an alliance of city-states with very different origins (for example Sparta had nothing in common with Athens, their origins, Dorain for the former, were different).

European unification is actually very old, older than Rome: the big god of the Celts was… Hermes, the Greek god of commerce, travel, etc. Later, the rising Roman military power depended upon (purchased!) Celtic metallurgy.

Delusional Brexiters claim California will someday want to secede. They don’t understand that the US empire is an advantage and amplifier, for California. Why would California want to leave an Union it leads by the nose… with an average of a few referendums every few months?

The real problem of Europe right now is not enough local, direct democracy. Switzerland should be imitated, instead of going the Napoleonic route favored by Boris I Johnson… Because that the funny thing: Brexiters are proposing to impose the Napoleonic “Continental System“… complete with blockade…

Certainly, if the British people understood that the Brexit scheme was just motivated by having the wealthiest British citizens keeping on avoiding taxes, they would vote through referendum for exactly what the EU is trying to impose on December 31, 2019. That sort of EU decisions is taken actually by all the elected governments getting together inside the European Council, and hashing down a consensus. It would be better if such decisions were assisted by global EU referendums.

The EU will stay vassal to its child, the USA. Because the US is a stronger federation (some of its strength due to luck, some to diligence). The US is already a European Union… But on its own (conquered) continent.

Meanwhile, the pettiness of Brexiters waste all Europeans’ time away from more significant issues. And it will never end: the present drama is just about the transition period. After that, there will be ten years of exit negotiations. Brexit is Brexinfinity, because Britain is in Europe, whether it likes it or not, and whether it’s led by Henry VIII, Boris I, or Napoleon… Dumb stuff.

Meanwhile an hostile agent (Iran or proxies) made at least 17 impacts on the world’s largest oil installations, in Saudi Arabia, using GPS guided cruise missiles. (yes GPS is a US system). That took out 7% of the world oil production (5.7 million barrels out of 81 millions). At the limit, that doesn’t’ affect the ruling empire, the USA… which is the world’s top oil producer, and also the world’s top sustainable energy producer. But it does affect its European vassals, which are livid… And soon to feel much more affectionate to Uncle Sam, and its big muscles… Trump doesn’t want a war, especially now with a tough election ahead. Iran knows this. But, when the Deep State is really smart, and really capable, it knows nothing beats maximal force.

In an empire, force, applied well and best, is more important than elections, because survival is more important than formalities [2]. Not just my opinion: the Roman Republic, the longest Republic, ever, lasted five centuries. Rome had the function known as the “dictatorship” (for special emergencies as when a Gallic horde sieged, sacked, and blackmailed Rome, before being justly annihilated…)

P/S: The preceding is not meant to assert that, say, British fishermen are wrong, when they complain French fishermen come over and fish in their more fish rich waters… That seems to be true, and is, at first sight, an injustice. However, the first reasoning is fishy, because much, if not most, of the British fish production is sold on the continent… Without custom duties! The EU, as it exists, doesn’t have the means to impose its laws: they are enforced by the member states. The fish quarrel can, and should be, solved on a local level. There are thousands of those, no problem.


[1] As I said, Athens had an empire for a while… and needed one because of its wheat coming from the Pont (hundreds of kilometers east of Byzantium). That empire was broken because of the satanic alliance of Sparta with Persia… And later, again, by Macedonia’s Antipater…


[2] Greek city-states, most of them real, that is, direct democracies (to Cicero’s disgust), had emergency provisions to suspend all laws in case of vital emergencies… Just like the Roman Republic.

Why Weren’t The Kaiser & His Accomplices Hanged? Because they Could Help Some More To Institute the New Plutocratic Order

February 21, 2019

Abstract: The US plutocracy (evil corporations and their evil sponsors in the US government) fed the criminal German war machine in World War One… And then pulled the plug, a strategy which made the US flourish, while, and because, Europe deperished… However the German spirit of Armageddon was preserved, deliberately, to organize the Nazi Party and nazi spirituality, immediately after. That was accomplished first, by not pursuing the German war criminals.


Unbeknownst to the WWI Perpetrators and their Victims, the GERMAN PUPPET MASTERS THRIVED IN THE USA, And What We Call Nazism Would Instrumentalize Some More Of Those Same Exact WWI Criminals, Who Should Have Been Hanged, To Help Institute Further the Present Plutocratic Order:

As plutocracy is back to its dirty tricks with Brexit, it’s high time to look at history with some more blazing realism. So this essay talk of the Kaiser and his racist, maximally vicious goons, but one should keep in the back of one’s mind that this is also about the fact the Kaiser was the grandson of the “Empress of India”, Queen Victoria. In other words, this is essay is ancestral to that British elite which fostered Brexit, the deliberate alienation from a pacified Europe, thanks to having hypnotized the gullible with a pack of lies, similarly to hypnotizing the German population in 1914 to attack the world in general, and democracy in particular.

The Netherlands and the USA became wealthy from helping the Kaiser and his criminals-against-humanity attack civilization in 1914-1917. Those German criminals, and their spirit of unpunished criminality against humanity had more to give (Nazism). Thus the US was going to do its utmost not to hang them… Just as the French Republic was not to receive the guarantees she needed, to ensure the Germans fascists were not back to their criminality against humanity within a few years (as it turned out they were). 

German Foreign Minister Von Ribbentrop was condemned to hang at the Nuremberg trial in 1946. The charge? War of aggression. Reasoning superficially, the Nazis had accused France and Britain to have started World War Two. Hitler pursued that line to his last evil breath. Indeed, France and Britain declared war to the Nazis: they sent Hitler, strong from his alliance with Stalin, Hirohito and Mussolini, a 48 hours ultimatum within a few hours of Hitler’s attack on Poland, September 1, 1939.

However the Nuremberg tribunal viewed the nazi claim that France and britain had attacked, for what it was: sheer, cowardly idiocy: ever since they came to power the Nazis had worked towards war, and that got hot in 1936, when they invaded Spain, bringing the downfall of that Republic with three year war which killed millions (reference: the Guernica painting).

August 1, 1914, had been much worse: that day, out of the blue, Germany declared war to Russia (Russia had not attacked Germany, nor planned to; Russia was mobilizing, true, but that was supposed to take weeks; whereas German mobilization could be done, and was done, in 5 days, or so). The next day, August 2, mounted German cavalry had penetrated deep inside French territory, killing and getting killed. These were the first dead of WWI. The French were taken by complete surprise: WWI was on.

When the Americans woke up, they realized that the dumb, brutish evil that was Germany would come to their shores, should it conquer Europe… However, the US plutocrats’ thought processes were more subtle than that… Where lesser minds viewed a terror, they viewed an opportunity…After the war, French authorities had determined that at least 1,000 German war criminals should be arrested, and face capital charges. Some of the charges were for example the deliberate killing of a two-year old little girl, who was bathing, one of many assassination which was fully documented… Still, nothing happened: the Kaiser had taken refuge in the Netherlands, a country which, by being a conduit to US plutocrats, crucially helped extend the war of civilization against barbarity, by a 2 or 3 years.

The Kaiser was not surrendered to the Allies because he and many fellow war criminals, had taken refuge in the Netherlands.

The short of it: the Netherlands and the USA created enormous wealth for themselves by enabling the racist fascist plutocracy known as the Kaiser’s Second German Reich to fight World War One by evading the Franco-British blockade. US goods were shipped in gigantic quantities to Germany. Either directly or through the “neutral” Netherlands.

Exports of the USA to “Near Neutrals” surrounding Germany and Austria saw an increase of +20% in 1914, versus 1913, and doubled from 1913 to 1915, and again largely increased in 1916. These facts show that US goods were reaching the central fascist powers by way of “Near Neutrals”. This happened with the Netherlands, Norway, Denmark Sweden. Actually the collapse of the direct trade with Kaiserreich and Austria was more than compensated, in cash volume with US exports to the “Near Neutrals”. A more refined analysis show that the goods sent to Germany enabled that fascist racist empire to go on with its war of aggression against the democracies.

In green, the collapse of trade of the USA with Germany, due to the maritime blockade imposed by the UK and France. The red line represents the rise of trade of the USA. I consulted older books and tables which showed the rise of the trade of the USA with the “Near Neutrals”. It’s roughly identical to (but less than) the graph the trade of the USA with France. Thus it more than compensated then the collapse of the direct trade with Germany. This red line thus represents contraband US help to the criminal regime in Germany.

(Make no mistake, US exports to the UK and France became gigantic, growing to six (6) times greater than US exports to Germany, pre-war (nearly the extent of exports to “Near Neutrals”); however UK and France two were democracies, and even were the two parents who gave birth to the USA; the point is that, without trade to Near Neutrals, fascist Germany would have been strangled much faster…)

Over the First World War, the number of millionaires in the Netherlands tripled. From war profiteering. While the USA became the world’s wealthiest empire.

The legalistic and uncivilized reasoning the USA used was to claim that “neutrality” implied keeping on trading as if nothing happened. Actually, something had happened in Germany, and it would be called “Nazism”, and rule, 19 years later.

France and Britain protested as much as they could to Washington, that US trade was keeping the bloody invading Reich alive… to no avail. Around three million Allied soldiers died fighting for civilization against the fascist invaders, while US plutocrats and their employees back home in the good old USA, made like the bandits they were. Bandits and racists. Remember: these were the USA where the Civil Rights of the same people most Germans tended to view as subhuman were systematically violated.

For the USA, WWI was just the beginning of using Germany as a bulldozer to clear the way to the New World Order

Nevertheless the Franco-British Navy was by far the largest and most powerful in the world: Germany and Austria-Hungary were progressively squeezed (after a while, the Royal Navy would stop US ships going to the Netherlands, and buy their entire cargo…) Trade of the USA with England and France more than tripled between 1914 and 1916, while trade with Germany was cut by over ninety percent.

For most of the war the United States remained formally neutral. When it eventually intervened significantly, engaging two divisions in July 1918 (which were obliterated quickly), the costs it had to bear were tiny when measured against its huge resources and the colossal profits it derived from the war. America’s main competitors in the world free market, Britain, Germany and France, were busy slaughtering each other. opening world trade to the transatlantic colossus. Between 1914 and 1917, American industrial production increased 32 percent and US GDP increased by 20 percent. All this was encouraged by generous grants of the US government to businesses (aka plutocrats). Thus they got entangled. The Bank JP Morgan financed Britain, and then France… At interest, of course.

All this to say that the US plutocrats had interest to see the war last more than a few months (it certainly would have, if Germany had been unable to make explosives, from the blockade, as happened in 1918…)

With the blockade restricting cotton supplies (cotton made 37% of cordite, the non-shattering explosive in wide usage in WWI; using TNT would blow up a gun, whereas cordite gently pushed the shell…), Germany’s explosive-makers tried to develop methods for making nitrocellulose from rags and wood-pulp. Meanwhile, their nitroglycerine production was limited by lack of glycerine (a by-product of soap manufacture), until a process for making it from sugar by fermentation was up-scaled from the laboratory. (And where did the sugar come from? Yes, the US…)

In yellowish beige the “Near Neutrals”. US trade feeding the fascist german war machine went through the Netherlands, Denmark, Norway, Sweden… pretty wealthy countries they became…***

When the blockade became effective, Germany collapsed:

Britain became ever more effective at enforcing the blockade without infuriating US plutocracy (The Royal Navy would stop ships, and then buy the cargos of contraband). That led the Germans to sink ever more ships, including those of “neutrals”… The excuse the USA needed to switch sides (Italy switched sides in 1915…)

In the end, in 1918, the US had changed sides, and the Franco-British blockade of Germany became very effective. Thus German explosive production collapsed to 5% of the French explosive production, which enabled the French to crush the last German offensives like bugs… The French had access to cotton, fat, etc… Let alone food, which Germany was running out of.

Germany was so much out of fat, from the blockade, Kadaververwertungsanstalt (literally “Carcass-Utilization Factory“), also sometimes called the “German Corpse-Rendering Works” or “Tallow Factory” became a delicious piece of propaganda. It was supposed to be a special installation operated by the Germans in which, because fats were so scarce in Germany due to the Franco-British naval blockade, German battlefield corpses were rendered down for fat, which was then used to manufacture nitroglycerine, candles, lubricants, etc. Well, a variant of this kind of “rendering” of human flesh would happen for real, two decades later, in the bowels of Nazi Germany.

Magnificent madman, butcher of Europe. Official painting by Max Koner of the crazed grandson of queen Victoria, Kaiser Wilhelm II. The USA knew, because of the Venezuelan attempt by the Kaiser to invade it, that the Kaiser was nuts. However, the US Deep State decided to use it as a way to weaken France and Britain, and all of Europe. Whether the plot was conscious or not is philosophically fascinating.

The Nazi view of what caused World War One: German aggression had nothing to do with it:

To claim that a cascade of alliances forced a scared Germany into war, the traditional story, is an horrendously inaccurate pro-fascist disinformation: it is actually Nazi propaganda. Germany had not been attacked in July 1914. Germany was not threatened. France did not do anything. France was invaded, without even a war declaration.

Germany mobilized in full, at maximum speed, in the last week of July 1914… and then attacked. France was attacking so little, that there was NO French government in Paris (all ministers, PM, President were in vacation). The French under-secretary of Agriculture, the only official left in the vacationing French capital, ordered general mobilization. French general mobilization started the same day when the Germans attacked and penetrated French territory more than 10 kilometers (2 August 1914). Funny that what would become Nazism is still defended 105 years later by ignorami who don’t know any better…


Decapitating German war criminals in 1919 would have decapitated Nazism, and installed a favorable critical spirit among German leaders::

Had the bigoted, racist fascist German invaders, aggressors and criminals against humanity, the Kaiser and his cohorts, who had planned war december 11 1912 been tried and executed, the top 1,000 of them… Nazism would NOT have happened: it would have been deprived of too many crucial leaders.

Here is an example, typical among many: war criminal general Ludendorff, the butcher of Liege in 1914. He should have been hanged in 1919, just for that. Instead, Ludendorff, who had been chief of the German army, de facto, in 1917-1918, was member of the Nazi Party before Hitler, and played a crucial role in said party: during the 1923 attempted coup, when the troops fired into the Nazis, they all fled, except those dying, but Ludendorff kept marching, alone, towards the soldiers: he used to command that army…

The absence of punishment for the German war crimes of World War One taught the Nazis they could get away with war of aggression and crimes against humanity..

Considering the collapse of the German ammunition making capability, once the US lifeline to fascist Germany was cut off, it is clear that Germany would have had to capitulate within a year or so of its aggression on August 1, 1914, if the USA had not broken the Franco-British blockade. (August 1 is the day the Kaiser and his goons declared war to Russia; they invaded France within 24 hours, and declared war to France a day after, on August 3).

So why was the nefarious role that the Netherlands and the USA played in World War One buried? Because, ladies and gentlemen, you are well immersed in the New World Order the heavy maneuvering of the USA started in 1914 contributed so much to. So you better love it, and not suspect it, otherwise you would be bad Americans!


Why was the USA so nice and tender with the German war criminals of World War One?

The Versailles conference was convened first of all to build a mechanism to make Germany cease and desist from its racist, aggressive and invasive ways, blatant already in eighteenth century Prussia (which had united Germany). However, it completely failed that way: by 1932, 13 years later, the Nazis would kill more than 10,000 of their opponents. The year after that, the elite of 1919 Germany had put the Nazis in power. Hidden behind screens, smoke and mirrors, the enormous influence of US plutocrats was in the driving seat all along (notoriously racist and anti-Jewish US plutocrat Henry Ford was apparently the main financier of the Nazi Party, in 1923, or even earlier…)

A number of elements:

  1. Germany was racist and exterminationist (see what it did in Namibia). The USA was racist, and had been exterminationist: a meeting of the minds. Actually, President Wilson and his right hand man, Colonel House, were notorious racists, and the latter proposed a racist world alliance to the Kaiser, June 1, 1914 (in the name of the former). According to me, that played a larger role than the Sarajevo assassination in deciding the Kaiser and his goons to launch a world war.
  2. Launching Germany at the US parents, France and Britain, was sure to destroy Europe, and would enable the US to come to the rescue of victory, as happened. At any point, the USA had the power to pull the plug on Germany, as it did in Spring 1917, by letting the Franco-British blockade be.
  3. The Netherlands and its vicious queen (instrumental in refusing to surrender the Kaiser) could play heroes of victimology in WWII, 20 years later, when invaded by basically the same Germans, now officially racist and fascist. That enabled them to sweep under the rug their dirty role in WWI… And the fact they contributed to the French defeat of 1940…
  4. In 1919, the USA’s deepest influencers, most of the US plutocrats, didn’t want Germany to become civilized; it still had to make to them the gift of Nazism… So it was important not to condemn the men who would make Nazism possible: most of these men were already in leadership positions in 1918. They kept those positions. For example, the chief of the general staff in 1918, Marshall Von Hindenburg, became president, and made Hitler Chancellor in January 1933.
  5. US maneuvers in WWI and WWII, when racist, fascist Germany was used as an attack dog to destroy the world’s old, European, order. ensured that the USA would control the world in 1945. That world control is enshrined, built-in, world institutions (IMF, World bank, UN. etc.). China has now to learn to live with them… or risk a world war…

To predict the future it is necessary to know the past, as the past put in place mental, if not institutional structures which rule present dynamics. One such psychological structure from the past steering the future, is to carefully not understand what really happened, to please our masters, or our guilty consciousness, or our laziness, and to not make the effort to find out what Machiavellian plots were really at works, moved by which actors….

(An example is when many democratic voters, propelled by plutocratic media, got enthusiastic about Hillary Clinton for president, when the Clintons amply demonstrated that they were infeodated to financial plutocracy, the big banks. Democratic voters and others worldwide, ignored that drastic fact, denied it existed or had meaning, and kept on supporting the Clintons with the blindness of fanatics.)

The descendants of such actors, physical or moral, are among us, and they are actually leading the show. They have no interest in us understanding what really happened, because it informs the world we can see disintegrating around us.

To say it very clearly: today’s plutocratic order was forged in the dynamics of World War One, and its aftermath. The USA’s Deep State psychology, all too much the psychology of its plutocracy, has, mostly ruled, or majorly influenced, ever since.  


The preceding also informs the question that history, not just psychology, always should ask: what is subconscious? Did the USA consciously plotted to use Germany as a battery ram? History provides a partial, yet unambiguous anwer: some US participants, say Wilson, the president, and Colonel House, his right hand man, deliberately plotted to present to the Kaiser the greenlight for Germany to destroy France. Moreover, when they could have quickly weakened Germany by letting the Franco-British blockade be as effective as it could be, right away, they didn’t. So, they, too, were culprit of being traitors to civilization. And they too, should have been punished. (In the case of Wilson, his name should be struck of all institutions…)  

Peace, like violence, and for the same reason, going the other way, is paradoxical, self-contradictory.

The Vatican just defrocked a US cardinal. Not only the cardinal was stripped of his cardinality a few months ago, but now he is not even a priest anymore. I think he should be excommunicated, too. For crimes against children.

If we, civilization, want to survive, we have to become perfect. Socrates said an unexamined life was not worth living. I say: an unexamined subconscious is not worth having, if survival is the primary objective.

And it starts with examining history; that’s the easiest. Psychohistory, as it examines the past, is arguably less charged with guilt against living individuals… Yet, it addresses what their minds are made of, so considerable resistance to inquiry is often present…

Note 1: To persuade the world of the innocence of Germany, his top generals suggested to the Kaiser, to go isolate himself in a distant vacation locale… While they launched the World War. Surely he was not launching a World War from there? In truth, they were afraid that the Kaiser, faced by the enormity of what they were doing, trying to destroy France before the high seas blockade by the Royal Navy strangled Germany, would change his mind at the last moment, and call off the war. Just like with WWII, the German attitude was infused with nihilism, risking the lives of dozens of millions, and germany itself, for really dubious reasons…  However, from the plutocratic point of view, they had little to lose…


Note 2: The usual “Marxist” and “Neoliberal” analysis of World War One are much closer to each other than to my own analysis, which should be termed “Democratic”. Both “Marxist” and “Neoliberals” historians pretty much attribute WWI to an accident between great imperialist powers: Europe was a powder keg ready to explode. However, in Europe, only fascist Germany and the French Republic had enormous forces which could be deployed in a few days. And, but for few Belgian forces quickly swept away, World War One was, for a few weeks exclusively a massive assault of nearly the entire army of fascist Germany against a surprised French Republic.

Thus, contrarily to the official fake version of history, the evidence instead is that the fascist racist plutocracy ruling Germany decided to risk everything, by physically destroying France, as it viewed itself ultimately condemned by the rise of democratic France and increasingly democratizing Russia, while unable to catch up with the Royal Navy of the democratic UK (which had the resources of the British empire).

So, for me, the difference is the democratic index (that can be calculated, I will have to explain some day). The German attack on the world was decided by 6 men (2 of whom, the navy men, being reluctant) . To compare, Earl Grey went to the UK Parliament… So basically 600 men, for very good reason, gave the UK foreign minister the green light to declare war to the attacking Kaiserreich. One could say the UK was at least 100 times more democratic than Germany (600/6 = 100…)… all the more as the MPs got elected….

“Free Market”Can’t Sustain Global US Military Rule: Trouble Incoming May Trump Trump

December 22, 2018

The “Free Market” is another expression for Global Plutocracy Unchained. It mauls all states, replacing the rule of law by the most basic, most cruel instincts… Even the mightiest genitor of “Free Market”, the USA, is not immune. In other words, a mess, a mess we have seen before, when Rome collapsed… from the same exact syndrome.

Defense Secretary Jim Mattis, whose experience and stability were a balance to the unpredictable president, resigned in protest of Trump’s decision to withdraw American forces from Syria and his rejection of international alliances.

On Thursday, in a rebuke of the president, 4 star general Mattis decided that Mr. Trump’s decision to withdraw roughly 2,000 American troops from Syria was insufferable.

US withdrawal makes the other imperial Republican democratic power, the French Republic, the sole crucial provider of life for the Kurds who have been fighting and crushing the Islamist State (of which they hold thousands of dangerous prisoners, many crazed out European converts to Lethal Islam).

Now, of course, France has been under terminal economic, financial and social stress from vicious EU policy targeting the Republic, to profit so-called “free market”, actually dirty, obscure, global plutocracy. And Franco-British strength has been broken, mostly thanks to the obscure and obscured machinations of their own child, the USA!

Resources of empire. Part of the British Grand Fleet, before the war, in 1914. It comprised around 18 modern battleships, 29 older battleships, 150 cruisers, etc. By 1914, six brand new Elizabeth class battleships were under final construction, and were engaged in battle by 1916. As the British empire collapsed, these resources stopped being available. Something for the USA to meditate: if the US empire collapses, thanks to Trump, US resources will shrink… That would trump Trump.

The British Navy lost 35,000 sailors in battle during WWI. The USA, more than a century ago, enticed and supported the fascist foolhardy imperialist Kaiser Wilhelm, for the first three years of WWI.

“… Britain tread lightly in this grey area of legality because… from the beginning of the war that the U.S. would be the principal supplier of financial capital and munitions to the Entente during the war.10 Therefore instituting a full blockade of Germany imports when war broke out could have been the death knell not for Germany, but for Britain and its allies.

Britain and France established total blockade of Germany (UK) and Austria-Hungary (France), after 4 months of war, once German mass atrocities against civilians in France and Belgium became widely reported…

Trade from US cotton, camphor, pyrites and saltpetre producing states to Germany through the Netherlands, enabled the fascists German invaders to keep on making cotton based explosives (although much less than they needed, less than Great Britain which was itself less than France… By 1917, France was producing around 200,000 artillery shells per DAY, whereas total German annual  production was only a tenth of that…)

Britain and France, with a little tiny help from Italy won the First World War, starving invasive Germany into submission, thanks to their world empires… Then the USA came to the rescue of the Franco-British victory, controlling the latter in such a manner as to weaken morbidly France and Britain (vast subject).

When Europe dominated militarily: Naval forces, 1914. Notice the democracies, France & Britain together had 5 times more submarines than fascist Germany…. and nearly three times as many modern battleships soon available… Fascist Germany really went into that war without thinking, as fascist regime are prone to do…

More of the same US strategy, helping fascism through rogue US plutocrats, made the Nazi catastrophe possible (in particular by smuggling US weapons to the Nazis, before 1933…). The Nazi madness terminally exhausted Europe, enabling US plutocracy to install the so-called “American Century”, worldwide. Trump’s intuition is that this free market empire has turned out to be economically unsustainable, as the USA can’t afford the giant military establishment necessary to keep it going…. Allies don’t pay enough tribute. Devolution is needed.

Unfortunately Europeans have lost their empires thoroughly, and can’t step up, where the USA is stepping down; even China seems better able to invest in Africa than Europeans themselves… US thought empires could be replaced by “free market”. “Free market” is neither free, nor a market… And the USA, handicapped by the enormous military spending can’t afford it either (in spite of the free ride the GAFAM got so far…)

Rising powers are all over. Pakistan’s nukes, not just North Korea’s, have to be kept in mind. The world is out of control. We know what that means: it’s at the mercy of a fascist, invasive team of crazed generals, as happened in Germany in 1914.  

If such a war came. The obvious winning strategy for the USA and its closest allies would be a repeat of what the USA did in 1914-17 and 1933-1942: wait for the participants to exhaust themselves… So, paradoxically, “America First” may result in Britain, France, Western Europe getting closer to the USA in all ways…  

The past has to be harnessed to lead into the future optimally.

On the most macro-analysis, Europe let herself be manipulated into suicidal wars. Or, more exactly, Germany let itself be manipulated into Europe killing wars by US manipulators (Wilson, FDR, and a cornucopia of US plutocrats and bankers). Is Trump another of these “America-First” manipulators?

Well, at least, Trump admits it. That makes him more authentic: his reasons can be explored, debated, counter-acted.

On the face of it, Syria is a European problem: it was the wealthiest province of Rome, when it fell to crazed, mass murderous Islamists… in the Seventh Century (Islamists, after winning a crucial battle by great luck, killed all the males capable to bearing arms in Syria, just to prevent a Roman counter-attack). Arguably Russia is a European state, partly heir of Constantinople. So it would make sense that a combination of Western Europe and Russia would solve the Syrian problem, and similar problems caused by 13 centuries of fascist theology.

However, to do this, one would need Western Europe to have a military power similar to Russia’s. That can be done: French GDP, by itself, is higher than Russia’s. However, what’s lacking in Europe, at large, is the will… and more: a mind? It’s no surprise: Germany’s will was broken in the 1914-1945 war it made against France, Britain and Russia, and lost so badly, that even the sewer thinking that had become German philosophy went down the drain. And in Europe, only those three actors (supported by Belgium, Serbia, Croatia, etc.) had the clarity of mind to fight fascism.

So now Trump is saying sayonara… Just as the US refused to help democracy at crucial junctures in 1914, and 1939 (and even doing the exact opposite). The French have long proposed a European defense force, on and off. Short of that, at least other European states should let France access the means of the necessary power projection.

And if that means a 20% French deficit, let the Germans and the like, consent to policies which will make that sustainable (for example a devaluation of the Euro which would extinguish the debt by as much, etc.)  

One may think US policy unwise. But Europeans better beware: Rome came into Greece, and left, twice. The third time, it stayed. Now, of course, Rome had not been created, but inspired by Greece, whereas the USA was, indeed, created by Europe… In more way than one… France in particular is not just the parent of the USA, but also that of Britain… One more reason for the USA to give France the means to fight… By influencing other European states…

Extracts from General Mattis’ Resignation Letter:

Dear Mr. President:

I have been privileged to serve as our country’s 26th Secretary of Defense…

I am proud of the progress that has been made over the past two years on some of the key goals articulated in our National Defense Strategy: putting the Department on a more sound budgetary footing, improving readiness and lethality in our forces, and reforming the Department’s business practices for greater performance. Our troops continue to provide the capabilities needed to prevail in conflict and sustain strong U.S. global influence.

One core belief I have always held is that our strength as a nation is inextricably linked to the strength of our unique and comprehensive system of alliances and partnerships. While the US remains the indispensable nation in the free world, we cannot protect our interests or serve that role effectively without maintaining strong alliances and showing respect to those allies. Like you, I have said from the beginning that the armed forces of the United States should not be the policeman of the world. Instead, we must use all tools of American power to provide for the common defense, including providing effective leadership to our alliances. NATO’s 29 democracies demonstrated that strength in their commitment to fighting alongside us following the 9-11 attack on America. The Defeat-ISIS coalition of 74 nations is further proof.

Similarly, I believe we must be resolute and unambiguous in our approach to those countries whose strategic interests are increasingly in tension with ours. It is clear that China and Russia, for example, want to shape a world consistent with their authoritarian model — gaining veto authority over other nations’ economic, diplomatic, and security decisions — to promote their own interests at the expense of their neighbors, America and our allies. That is why we must use all the tools of American power to provide for the common defense.

My views on treating allies with respect and also being clear-eyed about both malign actors and strategic competitors are strongly held and informed by over four decades of immersion in these issues. We must do everything possible to advance an international order that is most conducive to our security, prosperity and values, and we are strengthened in this effort by the solidarity of our alliances.

Because you have the right to have a Secretary of Defense whose views are better aligned with yours on these and other subjects, I believe it is right for me to step down from my position. The end date for my tenure is February 28, 2019, a date that should allow sufficient time… I pledge my full effort to a smooth transition that ensures the needs and interests of the 2.15 million Service Members and 732,079 DoD civilians…

Pétain, Racism, Treason, Racist World Wars, USA, Macron: the Eternal Wheel of Hateful Infamy, & Smugly Ignorant Complicity

November 8, 2018

The young, yet arrogant merger and acquisition banker turned French president, Emmanuel Macron, decided to honor Marshall Petain. Parroting Chirac, Macron said Petain was a hero who made “funestes” (lethal) choices (funeste comes from the Latin “funus”, namely a burial…)

Macron’s infamy encountered an outcry, in particular from Jewish organizations.

Indeed Petain’s criminal organization (“government”) passed a number of racial laws in particular against the Jews.

Petain had succeeded to hold the German fascist invaders at Verdun in 1916. (France had plenty of other generals who could have done the same.)  

The Battle of Verdun fought from 21 February to 18 December 1916, was the largest and longest battle of the First World War on the Western Front between the German and French armies. The battle took place on the hills north of Verdun-sur-Meuse in north-eastern France. The German 5th Army attacked the defences of the Fortified Region of Verdun (RFV, Région Fortifiée de Verdun) and those of the French Second Army on the right bank of the Meuse. Inspired by the experience of the Second Battle of Champagne in 1915, the Germans planned to capture the Meuse Heights, an excellent defensive position with good observation for artillery fire on Verdun. The Germans hoped that the French would commit reserves to recapture the position and suffer catastrophic losses in a battle of annihilation, at little cost to the Germans in advantageous positions on the heights.

The Germans captured Fort Douaumont in the first three days of the offensive. The German advance slowed in the next few days. By 6 March, ​21 French divisions were in the RFV and a more extensive defence in-depth had been constructed. Pétain ordered that no withdrawals were to be made and that counter-attacks were to be conducted, despite exposing French infantry to fire from the German artillery. By 29 March, French artillery on the west bank had begun a constant bombardment of German positions on the east bank, which caused many German infantry casualties.

In August and December, French counter-offensives recaptured much of the ground lost on the east bank and recovered Fort Douaumont and Fort Vaux. The battle had lasted for 303 days, the longest and one of the most costly in human history. In 2000, Hannes Heer and K. Naumann calculated 377,231 French and 337,000 German casualties, a total of 714,231, an average of 70,000 a month. In 2014, William Philpott wrote of 976,000 casualties in 1916 and 1,250,000 suffered around the city during the war.

World War One had been launched deliberately by the German imperial fascists in early August 1914. Their aim had been to destroy France first, then Russia, and finally, after it got an army together, force Great Britain to surrender. However after smashing into Belgium, and crushing northern France, the racist fascist invaders suffered a brilliant counterattack at the First Battle of the Marnes between 6 September and 13 September 1914.

Fascist German Troops Fighting the French REPUBLIC At Verdun, France, 1916. Ultimately more than 1.2 million casualties at Verdun alone, in a radius of a few kilometers.

French Commander In Chief Joffre was able to bring General Michel-Joseph Maunoury’s newly-formed Sixth Army into line northeast of Paris and to the west of the BEF. Using these two forces, he planned to attack on September 6. On September 5, Kluck learned of the approaching enemy and began to wheel his First Army west to meet the threat posed by the French Sixth Army. In the resulting Battle of the Ourcq, Kluck’s men were able to put the French on the defensive. While the fighting prevented the Sixth Army from attacking the next day, it did open a 50 kilometer (30-mile) gap between the First and Second German Armies.

Utilizing the new technology of aviation, French reconnaissance planes quickly spotted this gap and reported it to Joffre. Moving to exploit the opportunity, Joffre ordered General Franchet d’Espérey’s French Fifth Army and the BEF into the gap. As these forces moved to isolate the German First Army, Kluck continued his attacks against Maunoury. Composed largely of reserve divisions, the Sixth Army came close to breaking but was reinforced by troops brought from Paris by taxicab, buses and other motorized vehicles on September 7. On September 8, the aggressive d’Espérey launched a large-scale attack on Bülow’s Second Army driving it back.

By the next day, both the German First and Second Armies were being threatened with encirclement and destruction. Told of the threat, Moltke suffered a nervous breakdown. (The breakdown lasted months and was kept secret; Moltke had been the main fascist behind the foolhardy German attack onto the world and civilization.) 

During that week on the Marnes, 80,000 French troops died, and so did 68,000 Germans. (1,700 British, fighting under French command, also died.; the BEF, equivalent to a French army corps was not aggressive, because of its commander, also named… French. That enabled the german invaders to escape…)

The German retreat at the Marnes marked the abandonment of the Schlieffen Plan, that sneak attack on civilization. Overall German commander, and war plotter Moltke is said to have reported to the Kaiser: “Your Majesty, we have lost the war.” In the aftermath of the battle, both sides dug in and four years of stalemate ensued.

I went into some length about the First Battle of the Marnes to explain that, relative to these great feats, by great generals, in a war of movement, Pétain’s work pales into obscurity: his main battle, Verdun, was one of fortresses. One kilometer here, one kilometer there… But there is worse.


So yes, Pétain was a hero at Verdun. But he was put there, under orders from higher-ups in the French hierarchy. Pétain was following orders. He organized supply lines (Voie Sacree), got French soldiers executed.

When I heard of Macron’s temporary collapse of reason, I sent a message to a number of organizations.

Marshall Pétain obeyed at Verdun. However, when dictator of France, he chose to set up racist anti-Jewish laws. A crime against humanity. Pétain also agreed to a pro-Nazi ceasefire in June 1940, instead of pursuing the war from Algeria (Nazis couldn’t seize that). So he is a Nazi traitor to France & civilization, worthy of death!

Pétain was indeed condemned to death in 1946, and struck with national indignity.

Let me repeat my points:

  1. When Pétain was a hero, he was actually not just executing soldiers, but executing orders. Executing soldiers? The orders not to retreat were given using the old Roman method of executing those who disobeyed.
  2. When Pétain was on his own, in June 1940, he betrayed, first the Republic (France was a Republic fighting a lethally racist invading tyranny, the natural scion of the despicable tyranny of 1914… Not to speak of the holocaust in Namibia earlier…). Then Pétain betrayed civilization with his racial laws.  

In 1940, France had been the victim of her own commander-in-chief, who didn’t see the trap Hitler and the German High Command had led him in (although his second in command told him it was a possibility). A number of incredible coincidences made the situation worse (for example the absence of the Second Armored British division, which was supposed to be where the Nazi tanks passed). In 40 days the Battle of France (as it came to be known) caused 360,000 dead or wounded French soldiers, and around 164,000 casualties on the Nazi and Italian side (a bit more than 6,000 Italian died, and more than 50,000 Nazis).

Considering perhaps the callous disregard the USA showed for the peril in which France and britain, its parents, were. Pétain called for a ceasefire.

Asking for a ceasefire with the Nazis in 1940 was a mistake: it made the French empire weak, when it was far from defeated. The French fleet and French aviation were ultramodern, mostly intact and in great numbers. Retreating to North Africa, they could have prevented indefinitely the Nazis to get to Africa (the British, with much smaller forces than the French had, all by themselves, succeeded to nearly do so).   

Paradoxically, by holding Africa (and the Middle East), the French Republic would have been in better situation to protect French citizens in occupied France.

But then, of course, the population of France in 1939 was less than in 1914. Thanks to the butchery of WWI. Many French didn’t feel like dying for another war whose great and only victor was going to be the USA again… French die, US profits. (And you tell me Trump is bad? Relative to what?)

So why didn’t Pétain choose that route? Because he was a racist (against Jews, at the very least). A closet Nazi. It’s also for the same reason that De Gaulle, also a racist (this one against North Africans), was so fond of Pétain’s memory.

Actually, Pétain was filth. He should be celebrated as such. And only as such. His glory in WWI is nothing: it was ordered to him. Pétain clearly deserved death much more than King Louis XVI. Ah, but then, Macron said France couldn’t get over the execution of the king (although Britain clearly had). And that France still longed for a king… So, if Louis XVI was not that culprit, then neither was Pétain…

US citizens, reading all this, could smirk: who cares? Well, the French Republic, and her multiethnic empire twice saved the world by fighting to death German lethally racist fascism in 1914-1918 and 1939-1945. Pétain was Hitler’s soulmate. It’s important to be able to distinguish who was with Adolf and his ilk, and who was against.

The USA played a crucial Deus Ex Machina role in both world wars, encouraging & enabling lethal fascist German racist militarism in many ways. Now many (pseudo-) progressives in the USA vent hatred at Trump. As if Trump were culprit of what the USA did for real with its German proxy in 1914-45! It’s clearly unconscious, but those (pseudo) progressives would gain in power if they knew what truly happened, in the real world of real fascism and real racism, and how US plutocracy enacted its hatred.

In 1914-1917, the USA helped the Kaiser (and then did a 180 degrees as it became clear France and Britain were going to win). In 1933-1941, the USA and its plutocracy helped Hitler (and arguably more, as many US firms collaborated with Hitler, throughout the war… IBM, for example, from New York, through Geneva, kept on managing all the computers of Nazi Germany, all the way to May 8, 1945…)

Those who judge others, as if they knew history, should learn it first.

To finish with the traitor Pétain, traitor to France, the Republic, civilization and humanity, rightly condemned to death and national indignity. Pétain’s greatest glory in WWI was to order shot to death panicked soldiers, to make French soldiers fear their own generals more than the robotic racist fascists they were fighting. The least that could have been done, was to give him some of his own medicine, all the way. (Some, who were much less culprit than Pétain were executed; France executed up to 40,000 Nazi collaborators in 1944-45-46…)

Because it was not done, now we have ignorant, arrogant twerps telling us Pétain was a great man, at some point. One can be great, according to Macron, although one engaged in racist genocide. If Pétain had been executed, as he should have been, Macron would have reviewed his copy, before uttering his racist drivel.

The French REPUBLIC suffered 1.4 million KIA and 4.2 million wounded, including 15,000 “gueules cassees”, soldiers with atrociously destroyed faces.  Ten billion letters between French soldiers and loved ones were exchanged.
