The first NATO Secretary Lord Ismay explained in plain terms the purpose of the Organization: ‘Keep the Russians out, the Americans in, and the Germans down.’

Moving toward the 3rd Russian winter

The first goal to keep Russia “out” was accomplished by NATO’s members expansion of thirteen countries.

The second goal of keeping America “in” was taken for granted by member countries since its foundation until President Trump make some remarks about these countries abide to their commitment by paying up their share of NATO’s budget.

The third goal to keep Germany “down” is more problematic.

When East and West Germany reunited it became be biggest country of Europe and the industrial power house of the European Union (EU). The Euro benefited mostly Germany as it gave the country a stable currency to exports their industrial goods at the expense of the southern countries of the EU. At the outset, the growing strength of the Euro doubled the public debt of weaker currencies of the continent and allowed Corporate Europe to buy on the cheap domestic and foreign competitors while being detrimental to the tourist industries of the south like Greece, Italy, Spain and Portugal leading to a potential political takeover of the south by the northern neighbors.

My cousin who lives in Italy explained to me that Deutschland lost the Second World War but corporate Germany won the battle when it joined the corporate global takeover of the world.

Keep in mind that the main reason for NATO’s existence was Hitler’s war/invasion Europe that fatally included Russia. The Russians counter attacked, invaded Eastern Europe as far as Berlin.

Germany was involved in two world wars because of the historic rivalry between European kingdoms/countries with big imperial egos.

Today we have a German born leader named Karl Schwab who runs a parallel political network called the World Economic Forum (WEF) that is comprised of many European political leaders including many foreign heads of states, celebrity billionaires and CEO’s of global corporations.

The Next Step for the World Economic Forum

In one of his speeches to the European parliament, ex-French president Francois Hollande explained the reason for the creation of the European Union was to avoid another European war. Unfortunately, it appears that NATO, in cahoots with several US political hacks and the WEF, will likely be responsible for the European Union’s demise.

If you’re curious as to how the symbols found on the US dollar came to be, look no further than
Michael Rizzotti’s well researched book. In addition to providing the reader with the history and context, the author expands on related subjects such as the Federal Reserve and the dollar’ s evolution to becoming the reserve currency of the world. All in all, a good, well written read.
