Observing the renewable energy transition from a European perspective

17th Century Dutch Wind Power

You can’t be a great power if you have no functioning efficient energy base. In the 20th century that #1 power was the United States and its oil-based economy. In the 19th century that #1 power was Britain and its coal and steam-engine. In the 17th century the #1 power was the Netherlands and its windmill-based economy. Thousands of windmills were used to pump water away to claim new land and sawmills produced the planks with which the Dutch could build a fleet of 30,000 ships, three times more than the rest of the world combined, used to set up a global empire and en passant to keep the English away.

The lesson for the 21st century is that again that political unit will be the geopolitical “top dog” who embraces a new energy base first. That energy base can only be a renewable energy base, born out of the necessity to combat fossil fuel depletion and climate damage. A united Europe is well-placed to be that political unit and the only one with a coherent renewable energy policy (“completely fossil free by 2050”), but China is taking renewable energy serious as well. And although Washington has no real renewable energy policy worth mentioning, on a state level, like Texas and California, successful initiatives do exist. It is too early for anyone to claim victory.

Wallerstein on European-American Relations

We already had identified the prominent American Marxist sociologist Immanuel Wallerstein as a supporter of the Paris-Berlin-Moscow continental European grand alliance, supporter as in: predicting that it will happen. This is a video from 2009 and had escaped our attention. From 6:47 onwards he says that his theory is that in the long run the US would prefer to link with China, rather than with Europe.

Our position is that that could be indeed the case. After all, if the US could team up with the USSR in 1933 with a program to combined destroy and enslave continental Europe, there is no reason why the US couldn’t team up with China, but that is something we Europeans should try to avoid at all cost, as we don’t want another 1945; instead we want a reversal of 1776. The reason why the US teamed up with the USSR in the past and could team up with China in the future, is because the US for a century or more is no longer run by people of European descent, but by the enemies of Europe, who intentionally are busy to destroy the European character of North-America and its European colony and turn both into half third world territories.

Europeans must act like the British did over a century ago, if they want to survive as a European civilization. German unification occurred in 1871 and twenty years later the British went in the “Oh My God” mode of thinking and began to plot for WW1, with the aim to destroy Germany, in the hope it would bring them another British Century, like the 19th century had been British.

Fate will apparently only let you be top dog for a century.
Who is next? Euro? Yuan? SDR? Gold?

It took them 23 years to get the alliances in place and the war started and eventually they succeeded in their war aim. The British were able to hide their intentions until the very last minute and continued to play nice with the Germans and pretended that they were willing to ‘mediate’ between France/Russia and Germany, where in reality it had been the perfidious British themselves who had been plotting for the war all along. They told the Germans they were neutral, giving the green light to the Germans to attack France first and a few days declare war against Germany anyway and Germany was trapped.

Europeans must act likewise: playing nice to Washington and in the mean time engage in secret diplomacy with the Chinese about how the world should look like after the end of the American era:


It is absolutely normal in world history that the #2 in the global pecking order (Greater Europe) and #3 (China) conspire together against the #1, with the aim to kick #1 a few rungs down the ladder, so #2 advances to pole position and #3 becomes #2. That’s what Britain did, when after 1891 it began to conspire with France and Russia against Germany and that is what the US and USSR did after 1933 against continental Europe.

We Europeans must think for the long term and realize that the West is the sarcophagus of European civilization because of its ruling cultural-Marxist multicultural ideology, imposed by the Straussians in Washington, the only serious enemy Europe has. At the same time it is very important aspect to consider that if you want to return to global prominence (and that is what we want, Wallerstein is correct in that we do not want to live that much longer in the shadow of America), you must realize that Paris-Berlin-Moscow could be the death trap of European civilization if it happens prematurely, because you automatically push America into the arms of China (Wallerstein’s scenario), just like currently Russia is pushed in the arms of China, thanks to the insane policies of the Straussians in Washington.

Every smart woman knows that it is not a good idea to file for divorce from a rich and once powerful man, who is lying on his deathbed and that it is far better to wait a little longer, sit it out, have an onion at hand to generate a tear or two, anticipate the funeral and shovel in the heritage (European America) once he dies, not a minute too early.

If you really want to be cynical, what a European should wish for is a war between the US and China, because that would eliminate any possibility of an American-Chinese alliance for the foreseeable future. That’s what the American and Soviet mode of thinking was when they deliberately pushed for the European war in 1939: the Americans had pushed the British and French in the fateful war guarantee for Poland and at the same time, the Soviets approached the Germans with a proposition for a non-aggression agreement, giving Hitler the illusion that he safely could come to the aid of his beleaguered and persecuted countrymen, forced to live in Versailles Poland, because in this way he could avoid a two-front war, or so he thought. Hitler crossed the border with Poland to solve a purely local conflict about Danzig, Corridor and status of Germans living in Poland, an action that in Nuremberg would be re-branded as “Germany starting WW2”, to cynically cover the real intentions of the Americans and Soviets (plus side-kick Churchill), who secretly were already in bed together since 1933.

What is the key to bring the Chinese over to our side? In 1914 the British had bought France into the anti-German coalition with the promise of Alsace-Lorraine and Russia with Constantinople/Bosporus. France would get its reward, Russia would get communism instead of ice-free access to the Seven Seas.

So how can China be bought into a anti-US coalition? Answer: Australia. We have reported earlier about the worries a very prominent senior politician, John Malcolm Fraser (84) had about the alliance Australia has with the US. Fraser is afraid that China could become embroiled with the US, that the US could lose (the US can’t even win from Vietnam, Iraq, Afghanistan, Somalia to name a few) and that the alliance with the US could become a pretext for China to occupy and take-over Australia, article here. In other words, China (1300 million) could easily double its territory, or should we naughtily say: Lebensraum? The only way to achieve that is via a conflict with the US. All it takes is European diplomats secretly passing the message to China that Europe won’t defend Australia, just like Roosevelt, Churchill and Stalin exchanged messages before September 1, 1939, that they would be on each others side in the intended rape of Europe. Now it is payback time. As part of the British empire, Australia fought against continental Europe twice, both in WW1 and WW2, so no need for sentimentality. Besides, Europe does not have the means to defend Australia against China, not even if it wanted. If Dutch, British and other immigrants could move to Australia in the fifties, correctly anticipating a shortcut to a better life, they can do that again and move to North-America if they can’t stand the smell of rice [*].

Wallerstein does believe that the US will lose its hegemonic position after the coming financial crash and that’s what we believe as well. But the greatest difference is that Wallerstein, the good old Jewish commie that he is, does not believe in race/ethnicity as major political categories (majestically ignoring how the USSR, Yugoslavia, Czecho-Slovakia, Iraq and now Ukraine came to an end over the past 23 years) and therefore can’t imagine that the US could fall apart. We in contrast believe that the demise of white America will precisely be the reason why the US will fall apart, although it is very difficult to accurately predict the timing. Our European strategy must be to do nothing substantial on the geopolitical front until America begins to fold. Breaking with the United States is not an option, in contrast to what Wallerstein suggests (but perhaps Wallerstein does not have the best European interest in mind). Why should we? In North-America there are still ca. 240 million people of European descent. Why should we make an adversary out of them if we can turn a substantial part of them into a sovereign junior partner of Paris-Berlin-Moscow? European-Americans are not the problem, the US leadership is. What Europe should do when the opportunity arises is to take the lead in the creation of a sort of ‘European Commonwealth’ and simply push away those American territories that don’t have a clear European majority, like the Latino-majority states in the US South-West, resulting in yet another white flight from these territories into ‘fly over country’. That should result in a quartering of the US: Mexican majority territories back into Mexico, East Coast, West Coast (two new ‘Brasils’) and finally a wide corridor, ranging from the Gulf of Mexico, all the way to the Arctic, a territory, sneeringly described by James Howard Kunster as “where Dolly Parton meets Hitler” (Kunstler also assumes a partitioning of America). The latter part, Europe should help creating, if necessary militarily and give Washington the Berlin-1945 treatment, together with constitutionalist American insurgents.

American Lech Walesa, Havel, Milosevic?

The partitioning of America, making America effectively neutral, would be sufficient in itself, an alliance with a European majority in North-America of say 150 million is a ‘nice to have’. But Paris-Berlin-Moscow of 700 million should alone have sufficient gravitas to defend itself and balance/contain China.

The greatest European strength in comparison with America is that the latter is much further down the road of multicultural destruction. Europe is, say 15-20 years ‘behind’. According to Paul Craig Roberts, the US will be a third world country by 2024. Another conservative, Pat Buchanan, also thinks that the US could fall apart by 2025. Let it fall apart, the sooner, the better. America in its present shape is gone, good riddance.

[*] the writer of these words is a Dutch Saxon, with five centuries of unbroken Dutch-Protestant heritage in his DNA, a fact that is still responsible for far easier communication with British, Americans and Canadians than with say Catholic, Dutch speaking Flemish people. Holland, not Britain is the Genesis of Anglosphere, a historic fact we will elaborate later on. So why this seemingly ‘betrayal’ of Anglosphere? Because Europe is decisive for the future of the white race, not Anglosphere, that over the past 100 years has acted on behalf of the enemies of Europe. The survival of Europe is also important for those Anglos, who still identify themselves with their own race and civilization. Anglosphere represents a group of conquered people, who are being used to conquer the world in the interest of another group of people, let’s call them bankers, who are deeply hostile to European civilization and would like to see it destroyed (via multiculturalism). And as long as the Anglos continue to let themselves being used for this purpose, we continental Europeans can’t have their best interest at heart. As a consequence of ‘modern values’, the European race has become a dying race. If you want to change that, you have to kill modernity and help topple Anglosphere, the original promoter of these values. China and Russia won’t require us to commit suicide, but America does. That’s why America and the rest of Anglosphere needs to go, meaning toppled from pole position. If Anglos are lucky, a part of them, those who can carry their own weight, will end up in Eurosphere. If not, enjoy the Gulag.

The world according to George Orwell, “1984”. Orwell believes in Paris-Berlin-Moscow, China and the Caliphate and so do we. And Orwell believes in a totalitarian Oceania (pink), that’s you, Anglosphere. If the Gulag could happen to Russians, it can certainly happen to Americans, who have a weaker sense of identity than Russians. Commie Wallerstein and his ilk obviously want an alliance between Oceania and China, we Europeans in contrast want Eurosphere. The sacrifice of Australia could be the decisive factor in bringing that alternative world about.

Risk & Geopolitics


Risk is a very popular board game of French origin (1957, “La Conquête du Monde“). It is a game for 2-6 players, each of whom has an army and a Secret Mission Card, at least in the European variant. The winner is the player who fulfills his secret mission first.

Example Risk Secret Mission Card

Pre-1993 American versions of the game did not have this secret mission card; the objective was to conquer the entire world. There are no formal alliances, but everybody familiar with the game knows that ad hoc alliances are made all the time, to prevent one player from becoming too powerful. Additionally, open discussion is taking place about what the real intentions (contents of secret mission card) are of each individual player, just like in real life. Risk is a near perfect model for geopolitics because it is amoral, just like real politics, where demonization of the opponent is merely a tool to program the masses, in what is essentially a power game. Real geopolitics is a sequence of game of Risk sessions, usually culminating in the formation of alliances and ultimately war, which one party wins, after which the cards are dealt anew. Repeat cycle.

Over the past 125 years, four games of Risk were played, with 1891, 1933, 1948 and 1991, the years that every new game began. In chronological order:

  • 1891 – European Hegemony
  • 1933 – War on Europe
  • 1948 – Cold War
  • 1991 – American Global Hegemony


Players and Secret Mission Card:

1891- European Hegemony

Entente Cordiale, 1904 – the British walking off with the French bride as a first step towards the British planned destruction of Germany. Britain was the world’s hegemon during the 19th century and wanted a Second British Century (didn’t happen), just like the Americans want a second American century (won’t happen either).


  • Great-Britain – “Destroy Germany“.
  • The 19th century was the British century, mainly because of the defeat of Napoleonic France, but most important because of the invention of the steam engine by James Watt and subsequent industrialization. One KiloWattHour is the energy equivalent of one man-day of work. But if one worker can operate a machine of say 2000 Watt for ten hours a day (20 kWh), than all of a sudden that single worker is multiplied by a factor of 20 and Great-Britain no longer has 30 million citizens (slaves) but 600 million and corresponding geopolitical power. The numbers are arbitrary, but you get the point. That’s why Britain was ‘on top’ in the 19th century. But in 1871 the disaster (from British perspective) began: German unification. A brand new state of talented, hard-working people with the size of Britain and France combined came into being. And within twenty years ‘made in Germany’ had superseded ‘made in Britain’. For anecdotal evidence go to the Dutch railway museum in Utrecht to verify that before 1871 all locomotives came from Manchester, but after 1871 from Berlin. In 1891, a secret society, founded by Cecil Rhodes, decided to do something about it and mastermind a coalition with the aim to destroy Germany. In 1904 a milestone was reached when Britain managed to end centuries of Anglo-French rivalry and tie France to Britain in an anti-German coalition (Entente Cordiale). In 1907 Russia would follow (Anglo-Russian Entente), when London promised Russia Constantinople and the Bosporus as a future war booty. The British-led coalition was in place and the gun was directed at Germany. The next step was to wait for the proper opportunity to wage war. And that moment came with the Austrian-Serbian crisis, providing the Russians with the pretext (‘helping their Slavic brothers’) to wage war against Austria and indirectly with Germany, because of the German-Austrian alliance.

  • France – “Follow the British and conquer Alsace-Lorraine at the cost of Germany“.
  • France was never the driving force towards WW1, that was Britain. But Britain had a few fanatical allies in France that were willing to help organize the war against Germany, notably Théophile Delcassé, French president Raymond Poincaré and Maurice Paléologue (French ambassador to Petersburg). The French war aim was to reconquer Alsace-Lorraine.

  • Russia – “Follow the British and conquer Bosporus Straight and acquire access to the Seven Seas
  • Russia traditionally, throughout its history, was in desperate need of a warm water port, to end the paradoxical situation of the largest nation in the world being land-locked. The risk Russia took in 2014 in retaking Crimea, illustrates this desire. Britain’s most important ally in Russia to bring the war against Germany about, was the diplomat Alexander Isvolsky, not the Czar; the latter proved to be very reluctant until the last moment before the beginning of the war. Isvolsky played an important role in Russian meddling in the Balkans.

  • Germany – “Don’t become destroyed by Britain, France and Russia
  • Germany was the only one with peaceful intentions. Germany had seen an incredible rise of its economy and culture in general and had zero interest in a destructive war. Germany was perhaps a little naive in not noticing the repercussions its success had on notably Britain and France. On the night of 30-31st of July, 1914, feeling entrapped by a seemingly inevitable march of events, the German Kaiser Wilhelm mused to himself doomily in his diary:

    ‘Frivolity and weakness are going to plunge the world into the most frightful war of which the ultimate object is the overthrow of Germany. For I no longer have any doubt that England, Russia and France have agreed among themselves – knowing that our treaty obligations compel us to support Austria – to use the Austro-Serb conflict as a pretext for waging a war of annihilation against us… In this way the stupidity and clumsiness of our ally [Austria] is turned into a noose. So the celebrated encirclement of Germany has finally become an accepted fact… The net has suddenly been closed over our heads, and the purely anti-German policy which England has been scornfully pursuing all over the world has won the most spectacular victory which we have proved ourselves powerless to prevent while they, having got us despite our struggles all alone into the net through our loyalty to Austria, proceed to throttle our political and economic existence. A magnificent achievement, which even those for whom it means disaster are bound to admire.’

    That’s all you need to know about WW1 when it comes to intentions.


  • United States – “Do what the Israel Lobby says“. The United States should not have been involved in this European war. But unfortunately for Germany, US foreign policy was already under Jewish control and that fact was exploited by the British government that was on the losing side of the war and desperately needed new allies. Eventually, the Jewish lobby agreed with the British government that Britain would agree to the founding of the state of Israel, in return for the Jews to bring the US in the war on the side of Britain (Balfour Declaration). And although the Germans had done no harm to the Jews whatsoever, it were American Jews whose actions would be responsible for tilting the balance and pushing the Germans into the Versailles abyss.


1933 – War on Europe


Greatest conspiracy in world history. Europe destroyed, Anglo-Soviet mission accomplished, beginning or the rule of the ideologues. Victory of the Left.


  • Germany – “Prevent Bolshevik takeover and reverse Versailles by reuniting all German lands, regardless of what the rest of the world thinks“. The Versailles Treaty had pushed Germany into the abyss. There was a very real threat of Bolshevik takeover and communists and nationalists were fighting in the streets. In 1933 the nationalists had won and started to put the communist leadership in concentration camps (among them a lot of Jews), in perfect symmetry to what the communists in Russia had done earlier with the anti-communist opposition. The difference was the scale: in 1939 the German concentration camps harbored ca. 28,000 people, the Gulags in contrast millions. After 1933, the nationalist government embarked on a policy of bringing home all the German territories that once had been part of the German empire and/or actually wanted to return to the Reich: Rheinland, Saar, Austria (rump-Austria had requested in Versailles to merge with Germany but was refused. WW1 had been fought to destroy Germany, not to enlarge it with Austria), Suedetenland, Memel (just like Crimea volunteered to return to Russia in 2014). The last minor missing item on the German todo-list was Danzig and that was used by the US to get the war in Europe started, by secretly setting up the Poles against the Germans, let the situation escalate by falsely promising that the Allies would come to the aid of the Poles regardless what they would do (a bold-faced lie) and this indirectly encouraged the Poles to persecute the Germans, forced to live in Versailles-Poland, prompting the Germans to invade Poland to come to the aid of their beleaguered countrymen, after the Americans had pushed British and French into a Polish war guarantee first. Using that trick, the US could intentionally destroy Europe and divide the loot betweem themselves and the USSR and organize a show-trial in Nuremberg to falsify history and create the moral patina to justify the Anglo-Soviet actions.

  • British Empire – “Defend the British Empire and avoid war with Germany“. Britain-1939 is the only country that does not fit in the mold of the Risk board game, that assumes that the behavior of every country is defined by a single Secret Mission Card. In the case of Britain-1939 there were two Secret Mission Cards. The official one promoted by PM Chamberlain  and the second one, promoted by the British war party headed by the AngloZionist paid traitor Churchill: instigate war against Germany to promote US geopolitical interests, as defined on the US Secret Mission Card. Churchill was bought by a special interest group, called the Focus, whose explicit goal was to bring Britain into war with Germany. As an illustration: all the famous Churchill speeches, beating the war drums, were in reality written by a Waley Cohen, chairman of Royal Dutch Shell. The fatal mistake the Germans made, was to invade Prague, after the Czech state began to collapse, when Sudetenland was separated and returned to the Reich. With a little diplomatic skill they could have made the Czechs to volunteer become a member of the Reich, but the Germans are better engineers than diplomats. Although there never had been an independent Czech state in history, other than the one created by the victorious allies in Versailles to criple Germany and Prague had always been part of Austria and even had harbored the first German university, the invasion of Prague was the straw that broke the camel’s back and pushed Chamberlain in the defensive vis-a-vis the British war party. Chamberlain was very well aware of the existence of a second secret mission cards in the hands of Churchill. Despite repeated invitations, Chamberlains managed to avoid meeting Roosevelt, because Chamberlain knew precisely what Roosevelt was up to.

  • France – “Uneasy status quo with Germany“. France was not really keen on war with Germany, too vivid were the memories of the last war. Both Britain and France had reluctantly accepted that the existence of Germany needed to be accepted and that the Versailles conditions could not be upheld. In the end it would be the US and its stooge Churchill that would persuade the French to sign the fatal Polish war guarantee. Illustrative for the French reluctance was the fact that, although Britain and France declared war on Germany on September 3, 1939, it took them both more than half a year to finally undertake action and prepare for the invasion of Norway to cut off essential iron ore supplies to Germany from Narvik, but plans for that action were intercepted by German intelligence and Britain, France and Germany invaded Norway on the very same day. After a month or so, 8,000 Germans defeated 25,000 British and French. Once that action failed, Chamberlain retreated and Churchill became prime minister, although it had been him who had organized the failed Norwegian campaign. The first thing Churchill did was picking up bombing civilian targets in Germany, a practice on which the Germans had no choice but to retaliate with great reluctance, because they were never interested in this was.

  • United States – “Destroy and conquer Europe in an alliance with USSR“. The real architect of WW2 was the United States, that had been pushing for anti-German policies from the first day Roosevelt entered office. The first thing his government did was to establish diplomatic relations with the USSR, what no civilized nation had done before. That would turn out to be the beginning of the USA-USSR alliance that would eventually destroy and occupy Europe, by design. The USSR had plans to invade Europe since the early twenties, since world communism was core of its ideology. Stalin admirer Roosevelt never said anything against these Soviet intentions, but instead used it to encircle Europe. From the Finish Mannerheim files we now know that Roosevelt, Churchill and Stalin already agreed upon the destruction of Europe, early 1939. We will elaborate on the Mannerheim files later.

  • Soviet-Union – “Conquer the world for Bolshevism, to begin with Germany“. The Reds were victorious at the end of the Russian civil war and the USSR could consolidate during the early twenties and began to plan for world conquest, with defeated Germany as the prime target. This aim was detected by German nationalists, who wanted to prevent a take-over. In 1933 the nationalist managed to defeat the communists and install an authoritarian government that achieved remarkable economic success, resulting in elimination of unemployment and a modest prosperity for German workers. Germany had a foreign policy which aimed at bringing ‘Heim ins Reich‘ all the territories that wanted to return to Germany, but had been cut off by the Allies in Versailles. After all, WW1 was fought by the Allies to downsize Germany. Things went wrong with the last item at Hitler’s todo list: Danzig, at the time administered by the League of Nations. Although the town was 97% German, the Poles nevertheless wanted it for themselves and the Poles were secretly encouraged by the Americans not to give in to German demands. Like in present day Ukraine/Donbass, again the Americans had every intention to stoke the flames of conflict… because they intended to become part of the conflict and defeat the German core of Europe, so the Americans could colonize it. The situation began to escalate and the Poles began to persecute the two million Germans, forced to live in Versailles Poland and set their sights on Eastern Prussia. After the war, the Poles would completely cleanse the areas mentioned, but the intention was already looming in 1939. The Germans invaded Poland as a response to the crisis, not to incorporate Poland into Germany.

  • Japan – “Expand in Asia“. The Japanese empire sought resources and expanded in Asia, but dug its own grave when on September 27, 1940, Japan joined the Axis. That was a fatal move, because ten days later, US Lieutenant Commander McCollum wrote a memorandum, pointing out that Japan joining the Axis provided a splendid opportunity for the US to get involved in its desired war with Germany. All that the US needed Japan to do was to provoke it into an attack. The McCollum memorandum defined a program to achieve exactly that and the core issue was an oil embargo against Japan, that for the full 100% was dependent for its oil on the US, combined with impossible US demands to get the embargo lifted (“dissolve your entire Asian empire”). Roosevelt did anticipate that Japan would attempt to circumvent the embargo and get its oil from the Dutch East Indies. Roosevelt also anticipated that Japan would require to remove the threat in the left flank from the US fleet stationed in Pearl Harbor, on its way south. Japan had no choice and took the bait and attacked.

  • Italy – “Prevent communist takeover through fascism and expand in Africa“. It remains to be seen which one was the most useless ally for Germany: Japan or Italy. The alliance with Japan offered the opportunity for the US to get involved. Italy behaved complete Machiavellian and might as well have fought against Germany, if the French campaign had not been as successful as it did. Without consulting Germany, the Italian fools wanted grandeur and decided to attack Greece. This provided the opportunity for the British to ‘come to the aid of the greeks’. But instead of helping the Greeks against the Italians, the British landed in the North-East of Greece (Thessaloniki) with the sole purpose to bring the only German source of oil in Ploesti, Romania in range of the British bombers, forcing the Germans to intervene through Yugoslavia, a move anticipated and intended by the British. The purpose was to provide Stalin with extra time to complete the mobilization of his entire army and start the attack against Germany. Germany lost three valuable months, thanks to Mussolini and was the sole reason why Germany got stuck in the mud, 50 miles from Moscow. The plan to occupy Moscow and dissolve the Soviet state failed and the war was lost.

  • Poland – “Restore Polish greatness and expand at the cost of Germany“. Poland was the ‘useful idiot’ for the US and USSR to instigate WW2 in Europe, something the Russians are now hinting at, that that was indeed the case, without admitting their own considerable guilt in the sordid matter. Germany in 1939 had never any other intention than getting the 97% German town of Danzig back, at the time administered by the League of Nations as a result of Versailles, as well as acquire transport links to Eastern Prussia through the Polish Corridor. But land-locked Poland also openly wanted Danzig (and secretly Eastern Prussia, as well as cleansing Poland from Germans forced to live in Versailles Poland). Germany was willing to provide Poland with the right to use Danzig harbor facilities, but the Americans secretly told the Poles not to give in to any German demand, after the US had earlier pushed reluctant Britain and France into a Polish war guarantee. The US told the Poles that they could do what they wanted, because the Allies would come to their aid regardless. It was a bold-faced lie, after the war Poland was happily handed over to the loving care of Stalin, but the Poles believed it, because they wanted to believe it. Once that fatal war guarantee was in place, all the US needed to do was to ensure that war between Poland and Germany would indeed break out, to initiate a grand scale European war, just like the US hopes to instigate a total war on European soil again today, this time between NATO and Russia. And again, Poland could be used again to stoke the flames of war. This time Poland does not want to steel German territory (it already has), but add Ukraine to its sphere of influence. Lvov was once a Polish town and even Kiev. In 1946, all the US and USSR needed to do was to organize a Stalinist show-trial in Nuremberg and with a filthy grin on their face blame the Germans of ‘wanting to conquer the world’ and blame them for all sorts of atrocities, so the US and USSR for the eyes of the world could cover up the deception and provide themselves with moral patina to justify the consolidation of ill-gotten their European gains.


1948 – USA/USSR Cold War



  • United States – “Conquer the entire world for capitalism (read: Washington/Wallstreet elite)“. The US-USSR alliance successfully destroyed Europe and divided the lot loot among themselves. But once that was accomplished an alienation followed and the Cold War began. NATO was formed in 1949 and the communist bloc responded with the formation of the Warsaw Pact in 1955.

  • Soviet Union – “Conquer the entire world for Bolshevism“. The Cold War was a natural consequence of the existence of two power blocs, who both dwarfed everybody else and both had global aspirations: Liberal Capitalism versus Bolshevism. In the end the West would win without a war because it had a superior economic system.

  • Europe – “Unite Europe“. Europe understood that the days of four centuries of global European dominance were over and started to reconsider its position. Under joint Franco-German leadership, a program was initiated for far-reaching European integration via a sequence of institutional changes: EGKS, EEC, EC and finally EU, including a single currency, president, parliament and constitution. Until now the leadership of the US within the western alliance has not yet been challenged.

  • Non-Aligned Movement – “Steer independent course of both West and Soviet bloc“. Organisation of all those countries, not part of the West or Soviet bloc. Of limited significance.


1991 – American Hegemony


The world belongs to the Self-Chosen… or does it?

  • United States – “Conquer the entire world (NWO)“. Sees itself as ‘exceptionalist’ and destined to lead the world and eventually incorporate all global territory into one world state, the New World Order, a world without nations and borders and mixed populations. Religion and state are strictly separated. In this sense, the US is the last truly ‘communist country’ on earth, because it has exactly the same goal as the USSR (†), albeit with a different economic system. In order to realize this objective, the US tries to outspend everybody else on ‘defense’. Officially a democracy, but is in reality an oligarchy run by banking and media moguls, as well as think tanks. The US has no ambition to physically conquer the world, like the Europeans did with their respective empires; instead the US wants to conquer the heads of the global elites and make them align with global institutions like UN, IMF, Worldbank and promote mass immigration to destroy the idea of nation. The US army is merely used against adversaries that are easy to defeat. Strong disconnect between the Washington elite and the population, latest president approval rating 39%.
    The arsenal of the New World Order

  • EU – “Do reluctantly what the US says“. The EU has a combined economy slightly larger than the US, and from the outside looks like a monolithic block, but on closer inspection consists of a very diverse set of nations, that to a large extent operate independently, with the almost inevitable consequence of weak political leadership. No program to conquer/dominate the world. And although the official goal of the EU is to promote the idea of a multi-polar world, no serious attempts have been undertaken of late to challenge the US as colonial overlord.  It is satisfied to be on the side of the winners, has a ‘Atlanticist mindset’, calls itself a ‘soft power’, meaning that it is by and large not ready to challenge the dominance of the US. France could be the exception in the coming years and has a long Gaullist tradition of opposing Anglosphere. That tradition was reversed under Sarkozy but could return under Marine le Pen. Interesting is the growing divide between the baby boomer Atlanticist elite and an ever growing part of the population that resents the elite’s multiculturalism and mass immigration.

  • Russia – “Resist the NWO via ad hoc alliance with China“. Successor of the USSR (†). Began to lead global resistance against the US, after it understood that the US wants to colonize Russia. Strong coherent political leadership; weak, fossil fuel based economy. Strong support for the leadership from the population.

  • China – “Avoid conflict but resist the NWO via alliance with Russia“. Although China has a vastly larger economy than Russia, it prefers to hide behind Russia in the confrontation with the West, but will support Russia, because China knows it is next after a Russian defeat. In the mean time quietly work towards ‘de-dollarization’ of the global economy and ‘de-americanization’ in general.

  • Turkey/Caliphate – “Conquer the world for Islam, to begin with traditional Islamic lands and Europe next“. Turkey has understood that EU-membership is not in the cards, due to resistance from the European population. Under Erdogan, Turkey has quietly but steadily engaged on a re-Islamization program. There is no real separation of church and state. The actions of the US in Iraq has opened the prospect of the destruction of the Sykes-Picot borders in the Middle-East and the possibility for Turkey to found a neo-Ottoman empire. There are indications that Turkey quietly supports ISIS with the aim that ISIS does the dirty work for them.

  • JapanDo what US says but prefer isolationism. Mono-ethnic country, highly developed, but weak political leadership. Highly subservient to the US, even more than the EU.

2000 years of global GDP distribution in %. Most striking: the meteoric rise of China and the less meteoric decline of the US.

The real state of western finance: the US is a financial house of cards, worse than Greece, but can mask that fact as long as the world keeps accepting the dollar. Russia and China are aware of this vulnerability and are quietly working towards undermining the dollar.

2025? – Multipolar World Order

Scenario: in 2015 the war in Donbass as well as the situation in the Middle-East began to escalate. The US announced it would start to deliver lethal aid to Kiev. Meanwhile Saudi-Arabia intervened militarily in Yemen, which prompted the Iranians to retaliate and occupy the Saudi oil provinces, bordering the Gulf. Turkey reacted in its turn and fighting broke out between Shi’ites in Syria/Iraq and Turkey, which evolved in a full blown war between Turkey & IS & Saudi-Arabia versus Iran & Assad & Hezbollah. Oil exports from the Middle East came to a complete stand still. China meanwhile had begun to dump US paper and soon in many parts of the world it was no longer possible to pay in dollar. This caused the US government to lose buying power on international markets, which rapidly lead to massive uprisings and looting in the US. In response, Texas attempted to secede from Washington and several other states followed, a move Washington did not accept. Meanwhile Russia offered to deliver oil and gas to Europe, provided it would abandon NATO, something that France did first, soon followed by Germany. To illustrate the new state of affairs, Russian mobile Topol intercontinental missiles were stationed in Germany, under dual key control, aimed at the United States. At the same time Texas began to request European logistical and military support, something that the newly founded Paris-Berlin-Moscow confederation of 700 million decided to honor and managed to bring hundreds of thousands of troops ashore via Galveston, Texas. In parallel, Chinese forces took advantage of the imploding United States and invaded US ally Australia.

America: Australia’s Dangerous Ally

Map from 1818 of ‘New Holland‘ as it was known at the time, even to the British, until at least 1824. Nobody was really that much interested in this vast empty continent, witnessed by the fact that the British deemed it just good enough to make a penal colony out of it. Australia (7.7 m km2) is comparable in size to China (9.5 m km2), but inhabited by merely 23 million people (China 1300 million), facts that likely did not escape the attention of Chinese geostrategists.

John Malcolm Fraser (84) is one of the most senior people Australia can come up with. This distinguished gentleman has just published a long ground-breaking article, in which he advises Australia to distance itself from the United States.


Malcolm Fraser (born 21 May 1930) is a former Australian Liberal Party politician who was the 22nd Prime Minister of Australia. He came to power in 1975 through the dismissal of the Whitlam Labor government, in which he played a key role. After three election victories, he was defeated by Bob Hawke in the 1983 election and ended his career alienated from his own party.

John Malcolm Fraser (1956)

Wikipedia: “Fraser… was educated at Glamorgan and Melbourne Grammar School, before completing a degree in Philosophy, Politics and Economics at Magdalen College, Oxford, in 1952. At Oxford, Fraser was a classmate and friend of future Canadian cabinet minister and Prime Minister John Turner.” Editor: Fraser (and Turner) were the Australian resp. Canadian servants of the British empire, before Australia and Canada morphed into staunch satellites of the US empire, Anglosphere, the embryonic NWO, the Judaic State or whatever you want to call it.

A few quotes from Fraser’s article:

IT IS time for Australia to end its strategic dependence on the United States. The relationship with America, which has long been regarded as beneficial, has now become dangerous to Australia’s future. We have effectively ceded to America the ability to decide when Australia goes to war…

The idea of American exceptionalism is contrary to Australia’s sense of egalitarianism…

… at the moment, because of U.S. military installations in Australia, if America goes to war in the Pacific, it will take us to war as well—without an independent decision by Australia. Finally, under current circumstances, in any major contest in the Pacific, our relationship with America would make us a strategic target for America’s enemies…

The idea of American exceptionalism, which has always been present in the United States, has gone far beyond all comprehension in the years of America’s absolute supremacy…

Our task is not to embrace America, but to preserve ourselves from its reckless overreach…

Wow, what a candid admission, typical made by very senior politicians, with one leg in the grave. The sort of admission secret service expert and former Italian president Francesco Cossiga made when he said in 2007 in the largest Italian newspaper that 9/11 had been carried out by the Mossad and CIA, when he was 79 and was suffering from terminal cancer. Or US congressman Paul Findley, who in 2007 at the age of 86, claimed that the US was basically an Israeli colony. Courageous people are few, but do exist.

The article is a long read. But the essence is that Fraser accuses the US to be not interested in world peace and as such is a threat to all others. Fraser hints that the West is at least as guilty for the Ukrainian mess as is Russia and blames NATO of breaking its promise to Russia not to expand eastwards. Fraser says that basically Russia had no choice but to merge with Crimea, because of the Russian military facilities there. But Fraser is a little naive if he thinks that the current mess in Ukraine is the result of ‘failure of US diplomacy’, instead of what it really is: a naked, raw US power grab.

Fraser does not believe in a western defeat of the Islamic State nor that the West has any chance of long term success in Afghanistan. Furthermore, Fraser is afraid that an assertive nationalist and militarist Japan, possibly armed with long-range nuclear weapons in the near future, could become a catalyst for war between the US and China, now that the US has sided with Japan in the Chinese-Japanese dispute over the Senkaku/Diaoyu islands.

Fraser concludes that since the US could not win the conflict with Vietnam, it almost certainly can’t win a military conflict with China. And since Australia is allied to the US, Australia would become the defeated ally of a defeated superpower, without any friends in the region. In 1991, Australia was not as tightly integrated with the US as it is now, a development that Fraser deplores and was supported by both major Australian political parties.

Malcolm Fraser today, sadder and wiser, does not believe in a second American Century and fears for a Chinese future of Australia.

Editor: as always, you need to read between the lines of what this Australian old political fox is saying. Fraser is clearly afraid of China. He does not believe in a second American Century. He fears that the United States will likely loose a military confrontation with China, if push comes to shove. And that by implication, the Australian Lebensraum automatically would become a tasty prey for the victorious Chinese superpower. And that Euro-Siberia, if that were to happen, won’t lift a finger to protect Australia (he is correct, they won’t).

Australia’s cards are very weak. Fraser admits that Australia has no friends, apart from the United States and yet pleads for Australia to distance itself from the only friend Australia has. And Euro-Siberia will be relieved to see Australia as a safety valve for Chinese expansionism, if any. Better Australia than Siberia, you hear them think.

Moscow Confirms “Turkish Stream”


Yesterday we expressed our fear that Europe could have missed the boat with South Stream and indeed, Gazprom Deputy Chief Executive Officer Alexander Medvedev confirmed that South Stream is history and that instead “the Turkish Stream” is going to be build, even if the EU showed signs of being prepared to make a U-turn. And we believe Russia is credible. The European loss of face is enormous.

Putin-Russia has been courting Europe for full fourteen years, but under the current circumstances had no other choice than to quit. The nagging of the Euro-dwarfs Juncker, Hollande and Merkel simply became too much. As late as June Putin openly advocated a confederation with Europe, but was snubbed. We cannot begin to describe the depth of our rage.

China, Turkey and the US can’t believe their luck.

Satanic Washington got what it wanted, hook, line and sinker: destroy European-Russian relations, that got too cosy to the taste of the US. The neocons organized a Pinochet style CIA coup in Kiev, handpicked a satrap government and forced Putin to exercise damage limitation, by preventing NATO from taking Sevastopol, as well as wannabee operetta Nazi’s genociding Russians in Donbass (nota bene under Kolomoysky Zionist control, you really have to despair at the quality of what passes as Nazi’s these days). And they likely had a hand in co-organizing the downing of the MH17, the flying Lusitania. And from then on they could demonize Putin to their hearts content, dragging the Euro fools with them, completely against their own interest. Washington must be roaring with laughter, f*ck the EU!

China, because Russia has been successfully driven into their arms for a long time to come. Huge Russian infrastructure projects, like high-speed railway lines, will go to Chinese firms, not European ones. Additionally China is jubilant that with this move, Turkey is likely bought into the SCO-alliance, next to existing SCO-member Iran. And since Turkey and Iran will take over the entire Middle East in the coming decade, at the cost of Saudi-Arabia and the West, this means that the entire Middle East, with all its fossil fuel resources will then be under control of the Beijing-Moscow axis.

German Bundeswehr strategic assessment: more than 70% of fossil fuel reserves are situated in the “strategic ellipse” and Europe is now completely left out, because these Euro-idiots let themselves being maneuvered into black hole Ukraine on orders of the satanic Washington neocohns, destroying the relationship with Russia in the process, carefully build up over decades.

Turkey is jubilant as well. Out of the blue and completely unnecessary, Turkey got control over a large chunk of future fossil fuel supply from the Middle East and Russia to Europe and acquired corresponding leverage over Europe, illustrating once again the total incompetence of the European political class, that has outsourced the management of its interests to Washington, an extremely stupid idea. And when Egypt (including Suez canal) will sooner or later fall to the Caliphate, this would mean that Europe will be completely shut off from any source of fossil fuel.

The losers are Russia and Europe and the pathetic spineless Juncker, Hollande and Merkel and their convenient rock solid but fatal and masochistic Atlanticist faith are entirely to blame for this disaster. They will go into the history books as the Honecker’s and Ceausescu’s of western Europe, unable to say no to their overlords at the right time. They sit with their lazy *sses on the most advanced and greatest economy on the planet and yet don’t know what to do with it, other than waiting for orders from Washington.

Russia has to acknowledge that its plan A (Europe of the Fatherlands, including Russia) failed and are now reluctantly executing plan B, to find themselves driven into the welcoming arms of the Chinese.


Europe did not merely shot itself in the foot; it shot itself in both feet, hands, chest, head and genitals (if any). Nobody expects the EU to declare war on America. It would have been sufficient to say no to the sanctions, no to the take-over of Ukraine, yes to South Stream. Europe should have acted just like Schroeder/Fisher and Chirac/Villepin acted in 2003 over Iraq. Just say no, that was all, which would have come at the price of being called a “cheese eating surrender monkey” once again; who cares what the Americans say anyway. They will be history soon, like the USSR in 1991. Ukraine should have been a European-Russian affair and the US neo-bolsheviks should have been kept out.

Few people realize how dramatic for Europe this turn of events really is.

Oil Price Off The Cliff

Oilprice development over the last 2 year

What is happening here? Two hypotheses:

  • Saudi-Arabia deliberately flooding the oil market to wipe the competition out (Iran, Russia, US fracking business)
  • Demand destruction; world adapting to the high oil prices over the recent years

William Engdahl and others assume that Saudi-Arabia has increased oil production on request of global embarrassment USA in order to attack Russia, lower Russian income and hope for regime change in Moscow so they can loot the joint again, like during the Jeltsin & oligarch years.

Our educated guess is that it is mainly the first factor. Consumer behavior doesn’t change that fast. But we tend to think that this price dip will be short-lived, because likely victim #1 will be the US and its fracking business, wiping out production there in no-time, although Russia also will be severely hit. The winners of course are the consumers, to begin with in Europe:

[] – Ifo-Ökonomen heben Wachstumsprognose kräftig an

Very upbeat expectations for Germany. 1.5% growth in 2015 expected and record low unemployment of 6.6%.

[] – CPB: export én consumptie trekken aan

Netherlands, same story. 1.5% growth, reduced unemployment

Meanwhile, Iran is not amused:

[] – Iran: Fall in oil prices is ‘treachery’

TEHRAN, Iran (AP) – Iran’s President Hassan Rouhani said Wednesday that the sharp fall in global oil prices is the result of “treachery,” in an apparent reference to regional rival Saudi Arabia, which opposed production cuts.

[] – Saudi Prince says Riyadh won’t cut oil unless others follow

Saudi-Arabia admits that it could decrease production to give a boost to oil prices, but that it won’t:

“The kingdom is not going to give up market share at this time to anybody and allow – whether it is Russia, Nigeria, or Iran or other places – to sell oil to Saudi customer,” said Prince Turki, who has also held Saudi Arabia top overseas diplomatic post as the kingdom’s ambassador to the US.

Pepe Escobar on Turk Stream

Tough guys who know what they want, unlike the Euro pussies

Russia cancelled South Stream, catching the EU by surprise. The EU bluffed and failed. Germany can praise itself lucky is has at least North Stream in place, the Balkans are not so lucky.

The pipeline gambit began with the South Stream – Nabucco competition in 2009. 2009, that was before the 2014-prospect of Turkish SCO membership became a distinct possibility. 2009 was the year the West thought that Turkey was a western ally. The idiots.

2009 picture: Nabucco versus South Stream. Now South Stream and Nabucco have merged into a single pipeline, originating in Russia, but ending up in Turkey. The Turks can use this new situation to blackmail Europe, if necessary.

Nabucco turned out to be an empty promise: no pipeline, because no supply. Escobar says that South Stream could be revived, but he would not bet the farm on it. However, Juncker almost immediately backpedaled, but after Escobar finished his article.

But for the moment, South Stream is history. The pipeline is going to be built, but now to Turkey, not Bulgaria. Russian gas will probably end up in Europe anyway, but via Turkey, who can close down the future pipeline if it wants to. Europe wanted to reduce dependency on Russia (on orders of its US overlord), now the Euro-fools increased their dependency on both Russia and Turkey. Turkey won’t stall the process with nitpicking ‘third energy packages’ and glad it can control energy flows to Europe after all.

Escobar points out that the new destination of the pipeline makes perfect business sense for Russia, since Turkey is the 2nd biggest customer of Russian gas, after Germany, much bigger than Bulgaria, Hungary and Austria combined. But perhaps Turkey will be kind enough and leave something left for the Euro’s after all. Perhaps not.

Turkey is the big winner. They not only get the new pipeline, they also will receive a total new nuclear infrastructure, to be built by Russia. Turkey increasingly will become a hub for gas and oil. They already transport fuel from Azerbaijan, via the Baku-Tblisi-Ceyhan pipeline. Poor Saudi-Arabia; Russia will provide Turkey with all the energy it will need.

Furthermore, this is almost certainly an overture towards Turkish SCO-membership, completely sidelining the EU. Russia courted Europe from the very moment Putin came to power and Europe initially reciprocated the avances, culminating in the refusal of the triumvirate Putin-Schroeder-Chirac to join the US in the rape of Iraq.

This is what Putin really wants, cooperating with Germany and France, but unfortunately, Hollande and Merkel are of a lesser caliber than Schroeder and Chirac and completely subservient to Washington demands.

But everything went catastrophically downwards for Europe, when it cooperated with neocon run Washington, the only serious enemy Europe has, in its successful attempt to steel Ukraine from the 1000 year old Russian sphere of influence, early 2014. It was an act of pure western aggression and now Russia has hit back where it really hurts and this damage will be extremely difficult to mend and it will be probably necessary to kick the entire Atlanticist nomenclatura out, ranging from Merkel, Hollande to Juncker.

Condoleezza Rice on Russian-European Energy Relations

Former Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice and only woman with a bulky and greasy oil tanker named after her, forcing her to pretend that she actually liked that charming distinction, has some good advice for Europeans: lessen your dependency on Russian oil & gas and start to rely on your good friends in North-America.

La Rice ignores that the US is still and probably always will be a net fossil fuel importer, despite all the talk about increased shale oil and gas production. In other words: there is no mythical excess North-American supply that can replace Russian oil & gas. Washington will only be our friend, as long as Europe will play the second fiddle in the US multicultural global empire and the weaker Europe and its economy is, the better it is for the US. With friends like the US, who needs enemies?

Our Euro-centric neo-Gaullist political outlook of course is: ignore this self-serving advice, aimed at driving a wedge between Europe and Russia and bide time for the suitable moment to escape from the sarcophagus of European civilization, aka the West, led by financial house of cards and ethnographic time bomb USA. In this sense we can sympathize with the Turks, who have roughly the same attitude vis-a-vis Washington.

There is no way that the US, dominated by the all-powerful Israel Lobby, but that is rapidly changing into a third world country, can dominate 1.3 billion Chinese, 1.6 billion Muslims, 500 million Europeans and 200 million Slavs (with nuclear parity) ad infinitum. And the more it tries, the more it mobilizes counter forces and eventually will ensure that the entire world will unite against the US: France and Germany joining the BRICS for instance, would tilt the balance. Most likely the demise of the US as global hegemon will be initiated by China and Russia as the result of their clear intent to work towards the point where they no longer will accept dollar payments. The US, that needs to print $85 billion per month to keep itself afloat, will sink away in hyperinflation and chaos, once all the worlds dollars will return home, to the only place where they can’t be refused as legal tender.

Syria, Ukraine & Natural Gas


Pepe Escobar explains the origin of the conflict in Syria from a competition between Qatar and Iran about who could build a pipeline for European markets, sourced from the largest gasfield in the world, Pars, partitioned between Qatar and Iran. Syria had preference for a pipeline Iran-Iraq-Syria-Mediterranean, so Iran could sell gas from Iran, where Qatar insisted on a pipeline Qatar-Syria-Turkey, so Qatar could sell gas from Qatar. Obviously, Turkey and Iran’s arch-enemy Washington backed Qatar. If Syria had its way, the EU could be provided with gas for 45% from Russia & Iran, which meant tight European integration into Eurasia, which was unacceptable for the strategists in Washington. So the plan was to overthrow Assad and install a moderate Muslim Brotherhood sort of regime, which would have enabled the Qatar-Turkey ‘Sunny’ pipeline. As things stand now however, neither of both pipelines are going to be build any time soon.


Escobar is much less convincing when he suggests that the Ukrainian fracking potential was the determining factor in the conflict. He even suggests that ethnic cleansing is the undeclared goal, so fracking can commence unhindered. It is unlikely that Europe would support regime change in Ukraine to get fracking started and at the same time jeopardize the far greater volumes of fossil fuel from Russia than Ukraine can ever hope to offer. Realistically, the regime change was prepared years in advance, long before the fracking craze began in the US. In truth it was all about weakening Russia by stealing an ancient satellite from Moscow and mostly initiated by Washington. The EU empire builders were indeed also eyeing Ukraine and were willing to exploit the Maidan demonstrations for a rapprochement Brussels-Kiev, if it could be achieved ‘on the cheap’, without antagonizing Russia too much. But as things stand now, particularly Germany has second thoughts and would like to dump the Ukrainian project altogether.


Iran Backs Nabucco

Click to enlarge. The green pipeline within red ellipse is the planned but controversial Nabucco pipeline.

As of late, Russian-Irainian relations were intensifying: there was a power deal worth up to $10 billion, including new thermal and hydroelectric plants and a transmission network. And the barter trade oil-for-goods, according to which Russia may buy 500,000 barrels of Iranian oil a day. All much to the dismay of Washington.

However, now that Russia is itself under US and EU sanctions, and the West perhaps needs to see Iran as the lesser evil, now that ISIS is on the march, Tehran smells the chance to improve relations with Europe and position Iran as an alternative for Russian natural gas, knowing well that Europe sought to diversify its supply even before the Western engineered Ukrainian stand-off. Russia and Iran both have about the same reserves: 33 trillion m3. A logical route for transporting natural gas from Iran to Europe would be via Turkey. The alternative, the Friendship Pipeline, planned shortly before the Syrian civil war began, would connect the South Pars field, the largest natural gas field in the world, to the Mediterranean via Iraq and Syria. Obviously construction of such a pipeline is impossible under the current circumstances. Some claim that the outbreak of the civil war in Syria (begin anti-Assad protests March 2011, armed conflict started in September 2011) was related to the plan.

Iran is now in a difficult position. On the one hand it doesn’t want to spoil its good relationship with Russia, on the other hand Iran needs development and opportunities to sell its natural gas. And Iran knows that Europe wants to diversify and is anxious to invest in Iran provided a deal could be made. And that investment to the tune of $200 billion would be highly necessary to be able to deliver gas to Europe. In this respect Iran is lagging way behind Russia, meaning that Iranian gas is not going to replace Russian gas any time soon.

But then, out of the blue, Iran’s Deputy Oil Minister Ali Mejidi dropped the bombshell on August 11, by suggesting that “with Nabucco, Iran can provide Europe with gas. We are the best alternative to Russia.” It is not impossible that the US signaled Iran that benefits would be waiting if it would begin to promote the pet western pipeline project. For Iran this would mean business and some guarantee that the country could move itself out of the line of fire and have normalized relations with the West. Obviously this would come at the expense of Russia, although only in the long term, where South Stream could start to produce as early as by the end of next year, provided the stand-off and sanction baloney can be reversed quickly. Iran is the only country able to provide the necessary ‘content’ to the projected Nabucco pipeline. It could be in this light that bogeyman Iran could leave the ‘axis of evil’ in the future and is going to be replaced by Russia and ISIS as the new villains.

McCain Visits Bulgaria

US war mongering government to EU: “shoot yourself in the foot“. And the EU spineless satrap bureaucrats obey orders and shoot themselves in the foot. Brussels ordered Bulgaria to immediately halt work on the South-Stream pipeline, an obvious hit against Russia on orders of Washington, that is determined to start a war, cold or hot, with Russia on European soil.


Bulgaria btw is for the full 100% dependent on Russia for natural gas deliveries. The BBC schmucks noted: “Bulgaria has previously said it is being targeted by Brussels as a means of retaliating against Russia over the situation in Ukraine”.


At least they got that right. So Bulgaria, why listen to Brussels and commit economic suicide? Here an overview of European fossil fuel dependency on Russia:


Meanwhile, another spineless US satrap wannabee, the candy bar prez of the Ukraine, Poroshenko, has announced his maximalist positions regarding Novorossia, no doubt on orders of Washington, to create as much blood shed among Russophiles in south-eastern Ukraine to force Putin to intervene in the Ukraine:

Very good source for day-to-day intepretation of events in the Ukraine:

This is precisely the scheme with which Germany was suckered into WW2, when the allies secretly gave the Poles cart-blanche to go after the Germans forced to live in Versailles-Poland. In reality it was the refugee-crisis that prompted the German invasion (read for instance: 1939 – The War That Had Many Fathers, by Gerd Schultze-Rhonhof), an interpretation of events that Russia reluctantly seems to be willing to support. War is much closer than many people realize in the west. At least another cold war, but possibly even worse than that. War would mean that Europe will be cut off from Russian fossil fuel, with devastating effect for eastern Europe, but also for Germany. Again, it is time for us Europeans to break up the west and turn to Russia and send the Americans packing. The US are a dying empire. According to Paul Craig Roberts, a member of the former Reagan administration, the US will be a third world country by 2023.

But unfortunately it looks like that the US war machine doesn’t want to die peacefully like the USSR did in 1991.

Average IQ-map of the world, clearly indicating a shift towards Eurasia.


America destroyed itself through mass-immigration from the third world. The days that America could put a man on the moon are long gone. Europe is clearly member of the wrong club. After the death of the Rothschildt-Goldman-Sachs empire (Anglosphere), initiated by the dumping of the dollar by the BRICS and the rest of the world, the world will become multi-polar, with Greater Europe (Paris-Berlin-Moscow) and China the leading political entities. China will retake Taiwan and possibly Australia and double its territory and solve its overpopulation problem. And Greater Europe of 700 million will protect European enclaves of 200 million in the balkanized north-America of the future.

$400B Russian-Chinese Gas Deal

Well done, America! By investing merely $5B in the overthrow of a legitimately elected democratic government in Kiev, using neo-nazi useful idiots as a tool for the dirty work, Washington managed to drive Russia into the arms of China and en passant deprive Europe of $400 billion worth of fossil fuel that cannot be replaced in the process. And you bet this was on purpose. Everything was done to prevent a rapprochement between Europe and Russia and keep Europe in a subservient position to the US. This could only happen due to Europe having no credible leadership, unlike Russia and China. It is time that Europe reconsiders its relationship with the US, get rid of Washington and NATO and go Eurasian.

One significant aspect though is that the gas will no longer be paid in dollar. And why should it? China has a broad palette of products to offer in exchange for natural gas from Russia.

Russia-China Gas Deal

Gas deal: $456 billion for 38 billion m3 over the next 30 years, starting in 2018. Price: 35-40 cent/m3. The US can be proud of itself. Through its clever maneuvering in the Ukraine, it has driven a wedge between Europe and Russia over the Crimean non-issue, leaving Russia little choice to prepare for the worst: opt for China as plan B. In that light it is of the utmost importance to tell the Americans to pack their bags and go home. America is not a friend, but a competitor and should be treated as such. Europe’s interests are first and foremost situated in Eurasia, that’s where the markets are, that’s where the resources are.



Merkel Visits Washington

US President Barack Obama meets with Ger[source]
In the midst of the deepening Ukrainian crisis, German chancellor Angela Merkel travels to Washington, and no doubt will be subjected to pressure to become tougher with ‘Putin’s Russia‘. A short glance on the graph below will immediately make clear that sanctions are only in the interest of Washington, but certainly not of Europe:


Meanwhile, senator John “boots-on-the-ground” McCain deplores that in his view the ‘German industry lobby’ has too much influence in German foreign policy, which is a ‘disgrace’.

[] – Senator McCain findet Merkels Führungsstil “peinlich” (Senator McCain finds Merkel’s leadership ‘painfull’).

And then there is John Kerry, who opines that with the Ukraine stand-off the ‘Trans-Atlantic global leadership is at stake’. After two decades of trying to manage Russia into (Washington-run) globalist structures, he has come to the conclusion that Russia is not interested.

[] – Trans-Atlantic global leadership at stake in Ukraine – Kerry

Our take: Washington is about the last place a German leader would want to be these days. It was Washington and the Nuland-coup that intentionally triggered the Ukrainian crisis in the first place. Germany and Europe can expect Washington to exploit the Ukraine issue to the max and drive a wedge between Europe and Russia. The Grand Old Men of German politics (Schmidt, Kohl and Schroeder) all warned against antagonizing Russia. The German industry likewise. But it is to be feared that das Maedchen doesn’t have enough spine (avoiding references to other body parts) to resist this frontal assault against German/European best interests.

Europe’s Dependency on Russian Gas






German-Russian Gas Trade to be Increased

A few days ago we reported negatively about announcements made by German chancellor Angela Merkel about a radical change in Germany’s energy policy in an effort to decrease the German dependency on Russian oil and gas. However, according to new information, the German government has decided to give the nod to new joint Russian-German gas projects worth billions. Maybe all the anti-Russian talk was perhaps intended to appease the Americans, where in reality business-as-usual reigns in all things German-Russian energy and trade relations? We hope so.

India Ready to Pay Iranian Oil in Euro

New Delhi, March 23: India is likely to grant Iran’s request to be paid fully in euros for oil, against the current practice of partial payment in rupees… Reports quoting Mohsen Qamsari, director for international affairs of the National Iranian Oil Company, said, “Indians are interested in increasing oil imports from Iran and we welcome this matter in the event that it would be possible for us to receive payments in euros in our accounts.”


Breakthrough Iranian Nuclear Program

For more than a decade the Iranian nuclear policy has been on the top of the international political agenda, but today a breakthrough was accomplished in Geneva between Iran and the P5 (China, France, Germany, Russia, United Kingdom, United States). Terms of the agreement: Iran can continue to enrich uranium but no more than 5% and limits the stockpile of enriched uranium. More transparency is agreed upon. In return some sanctions will be lifted and the basic right of uranium enrichment is acknowledged. The agreement is intended for six months, creating time for a permanent settlement. The most important conclusion is that the agreement is acceptable for all and that military strikes are off the table.

The Next Reserve Currency

Reserve Currency Status[zerohedge]
According to Wikipedia: a reserve currency, or anchor currency, is a currency that is held in significant quantities by many governments and institutions as part of their foreign exchange reserves. Being the owner of a reserve currency means you are a top dog; that you are in the middle of where all the action is. During the past six centuries there have been six countries holding the largest reserve currency. Painting with a broad brush you could allocate a century to each of them:

  • Portugese Century (15th) – The concept of a ‘Portugese Century’ is a bit of a stretch for this tiny melancholic European outpost, but nevertheless it were Portugese dare devils who were the first and only ones during the entire 15th century to explore the planet in grand style, before they were overtaken by Spanish, Dutch and British. The Portugese set the tone for European imperialism for centuries to come.
  • Spanish Century (16th) – Christianity ruled supreme again in Spain, after the last muslims were kicked out, a process known as Reconquista and America was discovered for the Spanish crown, both events in 1492. Gold and silver were transported from the new world to Spain by the boat load, leading to the rise of Spain within the European state system.
  • Dutch Century (17th) – Nothing beats winning a major war before you can even hope to own a reserve currency. In this century the Dutch were the winners, the losers the Spanish. The resulting landmark Peace of West-Phalia meant the consolidation of Protestantism in Europe, with Holland as its supreme bastion, a religion emphasizing the value of labour, economy, money and profit. The Dutch commercial fleet was three times the size compared to all other powers combined. All the foundations of modern economic life: capitalism, corporate structures, central banking, share holders, can be found in the Netherlands first as a fully developed integrated economic system, that would expand globally, perfected by the Americans and hold until today. The Dutch were the ones who kicked in the doors of modernity. The last great achievement of the Dutch was the military conquest of Britain and Northern Ireland by the Dutch army in 1688/1689, the so-called ‘Glorious Revolution‘. But please do us a favour, don’t mention this to the British, they don’t like to hear it. By plundering the vaults of the British treasury, the Dutch were able to hold the rising French power in check. The last European assault against Protestantism by Catholic ruled Britain and France against the Netherlands in 1672 was averted and Britain became a Protestant state. By exporting a winning religeous formulae to a larger country, the Dutch eventually digged their own grave. Holland is to be seen as the blueprint of Anglosphere and the United States in particular; heck, they even wrote the American Declaration of Independence, so Jefferson did not have to do it. The Dutch are pro-American to a fault, because of the religeous/cultural proximity and historic ties, no surprise they were the first to recognise the American Republic. Here are more than 50,000 Dutch assembled in the Amsterdam arena in May 2012, celebrating America. Not even the British would display this orgy of pro-Americanism, let alone the Germans or French. In 177x, the Dutch played a decisive role in bringing about the independent American Republic, together with France, at the cost of Britain. Britain fuming with rage, took revenge in the fourth and last Anglo-Dutch sea war and destroyed Holland as a large European power. But Holland had passed on the baton of its way of life to the United States.
  • French century (18th) – Next there were the French, who rose to continental supremacy, starting with Louis XIV, culminating in the conquest of the entire European continent up until Moscow under Napoleon. It is interesting to note that in this list of six, the French, who detest water, unless there is alcohol in it, were the only landbased power, unlike the Portugese, Spanish, Dutch, English and Americans, who are all seafaring nations (or ‘thalassocratic‘ nations if you have a degree in geopolitics and want to impress your mother and pretend that you understand the Heartland theory of Mackinder). The Anglos, who like to cultivate a certain dedain for these ‘cheese eating surrender monkeys‘, have yet to show for a similar military accomplishment (Subduing Hottentots or bombing women and children from safe three mile altitude or fighting German kids in the 1944 Ardennes does not really count). Just like that if you want to count in the modern world you need to have an ipad, in those days the snobs spoke French, like the upperclasses in the Netherlands or Prussia. The British, who by definition don’t like the strongest state in Europe, be it the Spanish, the Dutch, the French or the Germans (Balance of Power politics), organized a coalition against the French, who literally found their Waterloo in 1815.
  • British Century (19th) – From now on, for two centuries, the reserve currency would speak English. After Napoleon, the British empire was next, greatly stimulated by the invention of the steam engine, leading to vast industries, train networks and increased shipping. London was the true center of the world, much more than New York is today. By 1920 the British had acquired ca. 25% of the planet as a little Lebensraum of their own. But then the British committed suicide by applying their balance of power strategy one time too many and chose to destroy Germany, that had dared to outcompete Britain (and France) on world markets by the turn of the century. The British started to mastermind a coalition with the intent to destroy Germany (‘Germania est delenda‘), a strategy that succeeded initially, culminating in Versailles, the most cruel ‘peace treaty’ ever, but the same conflict was exploited the second time by extra-European powers USA and USSR. Although the British until today think that they won WW2, in reality they lost the largest empire in recorded history and unintentionally created the foundations of European unity, ending five centuries of British balance of power strategy. It is unlikely that we will hear much of Britain ever again as it remains to be seen if London can hold onto Scotland and Wales, or even onto itself as London is no longer majority English. Britain has acted as Europe’s geopolitical cat flap, that can be used by foreign powers to bring continental Europe down. The British are so fond of humor that they have decided to turn their own country into a joke.
  • American Century (20th) – The 20th century should have been the German century, but thanks to the actions of Britain in 1914 and 1939, Europe, that had ruled the planet since 1492, committed geopolitical suicide and the baton was passed to the USA and USSR. The American century was born. Or was it the jewish century, as this jewish author wants to have it? It was the Soviet spy Harry Dexter White, acting on behalf of the US government, who was the architect behind the Bretton Woods arrangement, that explicitly bombarded the US dollar as the reserve currency of the western world, now under leadership of the US. The western world experienced unparalleled economic prosperity, mainly thanks to unlimited supply of cheap fossil fuel. In 1989 the Berlin Wall came down and soon afterwards the USSR disintegrated. What followed was the so-called ‘unipolar moment‘, where the real US power brokers behind the scenes, like Krauthammer, Kristol, Perle, Wolfowitz, Ledeen, Libby, the ethnic identity of whom you are not supposed to mention in polite company, were dreaming of a ‘benevolent hegemony‘ of the US. The event of 9/11 provided a pretext for the creation of a terrorism meme, which would be used to invade countries at will; not few suspected that 9/11 was setup for that purpose (‘inside job’). Whatever the truth of that, the invasion of Iraq and Afghanistan proved to be a disaster for the US, from which it will unlikely recover. Combined with the rapid morphing of the US into a third world country and structural fiscal deficits of 1+ trillion $, it is obvious that the days for the dollar as global reserve currency are numbered and that it can lay itself to rest in the reserve currency mausoleum, next to the pesos, guilder, franc and stirling. Washington wants to rule the world but it can’t. Even Samuel Huntington, the great American prophet of the coming identitarian multipolar world order, had to backtrack from his own theory, as he foresaw that possibly North-America would not fit into his scheme. According to Pat Buchanan, the US might break up before 2025 as a result of ethnic strife, just like everywhere else in the world and we support that view.

    So which currency is going to be the next reserve currency? Who are the candidates?

    Current reserve currency situation:


    Ranking nominal GDP:

    EU $17T
    US $15T
    China $7T
    Japan $5T
    Russia $2T
    India $2T
  • Dollar? All talk about American decline is premature and the dollar will stay in place? Owning a reserve currency means you can, to a certain extent, print money with zero nominal value in exchange for real values, first and foremost oil. But this setup presupposes that there are economic partners willing to accept this money in the first place. As we speak all major ‘partners’ like Russia, China and Brasil (BRICS) and now even Australia, are working towards the goal of eliminating/bypassing this essentially American free lunch.
  • Euro? Come-back of Europe? They ruled the planet for five centuries, even as a divided continent, until assorted inconveniences like Americans and Soviets came along and (temporarily?) interrupted the European party. The Soviets are dead and although the US can wipe out life on the planet 100 times over, the Russians, Chinese, French and British can do it at least one time, which is basically enough, militarily speaking to keep the Americans in check. A cowboy carrying hundred shooters is not necessarily in advantage facing an opponent with only one. Militarily the US are a paper tiger as soon as the famous boots are on the ground, as fiasco’s like Vietnam, Somalia, Lebanon, Afghanistan and Iraq have shown. The American is a travelling salesman, not a warrior, or ‘lousy imperialists‘ as Pat Buchanan once put it. Europe already is the largest economic power on the planet, is for the first time united under a single currency and has 500 million Europeans in contrast to 180 million Euro-Americans plus 120 million of non-European origin, many of whom are a burden rather than an asset. Europe’s industry by-and-large outcompeted that of the US (cars, planes, trains, aerospace) and sooner or later this will have repercussions on the political power level. Not that these industries have a lot of future in a resource depleted world, but it does show the strength of the new formation. And then there is the option of a Paris-Berlin-Moscow alliance, the one advocated by French general De Gaulle (‘Europe of the Fatherlands’). Quintessential gas-pipelines to Europe already come from the East, not from the Atlantic, a geopolitical fact of the highest importance.

    The French president Charles de Gaulle in 1962 rejecting supranationalism and Atlanticism in favour of a Europe of the Fatherlands, including Russia after the demise of communism. The time is ripe for that vision to be realized.

  • Renminbi? The what? See, everybody on the planet knows what a dollar or euro is, or even currency number three, the British pound, but China still has a long way to go before at least 5% of the US population can discern this currency from a starlet featuring in American Idols. Would-be Nostradamusses like Jim Rogers already let their kids learn Mandarin (which is not a fruit), because, you see, China is the next big thing, just because these people are foolish enough to fill the shelves at Walmart with pedal bins in exchange for printed green paper.
  • Gold? Libertarians of all nations unite! Oh wait, that’s a ‘collectivist’ thing to do and we are all glad we are not like that. Seriously, gold has won considerable traction world wide since the FED began to print money big time and nobody was fooled by the soothing term ‘quantitative easing’. Yet as a coin gold is useless unless you bring your microscope when you buy a loaf of bread. Demanding that paper currency is backed by gold for 100% will work maybe for a couple of years, but soon another Nixon will come along and start to ease this restriction. In itself ‘fiat currencies’ can and did work, provided you have an independent central bank with the task of keeping inflation low. Best example is the Bundesbank, an institution that worked perfectly for decades. Why? Because the Germans had not set themselves impossible goals and merely concentrated on building cars and left ‘conquering the world’ gladly to the Americans. The Americans in contrast cannot let go of impossible imperial dreams and that’s what’s bringing them and their currency down in the end (‘imperial overstretch‘). They don’t have the money to fund all their imperial projects, so they print, which is noticed by the rest of the world, which votes with its feet, that is away from the dollar.
  • IMF run world currency? Well, as long as the IMF is (correctly) seen as an institution serving western interests, this is not likely to happen.


    First of all, in the rising multipolar world, there will be no second Bretton Woods, where one entity can impose its currency upon another. There will be several competing currencies and the acceptance of a foreign currency will be proportional to the package of products that economy can provide to the potential holder of that currency. You are from Kenia and you want a car? Forget your local currency, make sure you have dollars or euro’s and then you can come back. You are still from Kenia and now want oil from the Gulf to drive in your newly acquired French car? Bring dollars only, courtesy US army, which occupies the Gulf region, providing ‘security’ to that area. Or try the Russians, maybe they accept euro’s. So how is the graph above going to look like in 10, 20, 30 years time? We could be honest and say we don’t know, but that’s not a billable answer. So our guess would be that, ignoring resource depletion and the possibility of war, the green euro area will increase somewhat and that a small band representing Chinese money will appear, both at the cost of the dollar, but that if the international system remains stable, the dollar could hold out quite some time. But that is a big if. The greatest threat to international financial stability comes from Washington itself, in its unwillingness/inability to cut its spending and moderate its ambitions. Washington could reduce its military budget with 50% without compromising its own security, but it won’t. Washington is up to something, prepares to jump and does not mind if the American launchpad for that jump will get under water because of the jump and the rest of the world knows it and starts to react, putting Washington in dangerous isolation.

    But maybe all the talk about the reserve currencies of the past is meaningless for the direct future as the most likely successor for the dollar has not been mentioned in the list above: barter, meaning no currency at all. If everything breaks down and no trust is left, this is going to be the mechanism to keep economic life going, be it on a the back burner. In the thirties the Germans traded locomotives against Argentinian wheat, circumventing financial institutions in Anglosphere, which was not appreciated in London and New York. One thing we do know for certain, namely that the Unipolar Moment of US supremacy is going to be just that: a moment (1991-2003). What is really in store is a chaotic declining world, where modernity is going to be traded in for archaism, where all the peaks will be behind us, except peak hurt:

    1914 – Peak Europe (at the eve of the Great War)
    1969 – Peak USA (moon landing)
    2005 – Peak conventional oil
    2008 – Peak West (Lehman crash)
    2018 – Peak fossil energy
