Is the Real Brexit Plan to Create a Closer European Union Without Britain?
By Daily Bell Staff - May 19, 2016

Germany Is Very, Very Tired … The overriding worry is that a vicious cycle has begun: As Germany gets ever more frustrated with Europe’s inability to change, it gets ever less likely to lead, so the change it wants becomes ever less likely to happen. If Britain were to opt to leave and other countries threatened to hold referendums, then even the cautious Merkel might be forced to seize the moment and bully reforms through Brussels to create a more cohesive, modern euro zone with a deeper single market.  – Bloomberg

Is this the plan? It hadn’t occurred to us. We’re well aware that top Eurocrats have counted on crisis to move the EU project forward.

But this Bloomberg article shows us clearly how EU political bonds might be strengthened.

As we can see from the excerpt above, the idea is that a “Brexit” – a British exit from the EU – might cause an immediate deepening of ties.

In other words, the remaining EU members would soon turn from a coalition of loosely linked nation-states into the longed-for (by some) United States of Europe.

We’ve written on this idea of deeper EU political ties quite a bit. It turns out that the reason to impose the euro was to create an economic crisis that would necessitate a deeper political union.

You can see an article HERE.

The top Eurocrats of the day understood that binding the EU to a single central bank would create considerable financial fragmentation.

But the manipulation ran a good deal deeper than that. Many countries were given loans in order for them to meet EU financial criteria. These loans were duly wasted and after the 2008 market implosion, it became clear that many countries could not repay the loans.

Some countries, like Greece, have become virtual vassals of the EU. Other countries like Spain are facing out-and-out bankruptcy. Spain’s debt is now worth more than its GDP.

The intention was to generate the largest possible union, while gradually weakening the economies of member states.

This process is ongoing. It includes Germany as well, though Germany has emerged EU’s critical country. But the ultimate goal has not yet been met. The EU is still a disparate group of struggling nation-states.

Perhaps Brexit holds the key.

More:

Over the past few days the Brexit referendum has taken a nasty turn, with Boris Johnson, the former mayor of London and a prominent “leaver,” comparing the European Union to Adolf Hitler and complaining about Germany’s growing power in the EU. He should visit Berlin, which I did last week. Far from wanting to rule Europe, Germany’s leaders seem increasingly worn out by its endless crises and, from their point of view, downright ingratitude.

This growing fatigue in the continent’s already reluctant hegemon could spell as much trouble for the EU as Brexit does. Postwar Britain famously lost an empire but couldn’t find a role; now, Germany has acquired an empire of sorts but can’t work out how to run it.

One of the myths circling the EU is that  German leaders decided to build an economic empire when they couldn’t acquire one militarily. But this doesn’t make much sense. The power in Europe lies with London’s City (the financial district), not Berlin.

It was London’s City that wanted war – and achieved it twice in one century – in order to speed up globalization. It is London’s City today that is in charge.

The Germans are indeed weary. But the weariness comes from what has happened to the country in the past 100 years.

The cohesive German culture did offer the Anglosphere a serious threat and that was one reason that Germany became the enemy. Now, having experienced these wars, Germany finds herself yoked to the European Union and in thrall to the City’s larger ambitions.

Germans would no doubt like to be left alone but that is not to be their fate.

In several articles, we’ve advanced the theory that Brexit was an elaborate manipulation. Our idea was that the City allowed Brexit in order to negotiate loopholes that would further benefit its commercial position.

Once the renegotiation was successfully completed, we figured Brexit would fail. But perhaps we missed something.

It is possible that Brexit itself is to be the galvanizing force that turns Europe into a cohesive nation? In that case, Britain would find itself on the outside looking in. But the City would have achieved its main goal, which was to create a homogeneous European region.

Conclusion: There are many political and economic currents swirling about Brexit. Once the vote itself is resolved, certain patterns will become much clearer. We’ll be watching.

    The past, history, once upon a time, long time ago, the distant past all very hard to get away from. 28 counties in the EU. The British have never consider themselves European, they are British, don’t you know. And the Europeans are really just apart of a big landmass called Eurasia. Cultures, languages and beliefs are also hard to get away from.

    You read up on genetics, DNA and they always state, color of the eyes, hair, skin all are in your DNA, and more than likely culture, language and belief are encoded. And reinforced by environmental surroundings (family). This is Natural law and Human Action.

    The war the elites are really waging is against Natural Law and Human Action, and they have been losing that war since once upon a time, long time ago and the distant past. Good luck to them!!!

    A vote for BREXIT is like a vote for Trump: You may not be sure what will happen but you do know the alternative is worse. So, I continue to predict that the UK will exit the EU. Here’s a video explaining why that’s a no-brainer IMO:

    Now, Germany is beginning to wake up themselves. The German people may be fast learners. They no longer accept the “logic” of the politically correct who say that ME immigrants have to be admitted because of their Nazi past. They no longer accept that Germany must surrender its sovereignty so as to never bully its neighbors. They no longer accept that a weaker Germany is good for Germany.

    Here’s another prediction: Germany will be next on deck to leave the EU, especially if the UK DOES NOT leave.

      Indeed, from a general standpoint, much of current political movements appears to be people opting to put down their shovels rather than keep digging the hole.

    Surrendering one sovereignty is more than to simply admit failure. It’s throwing in the towel before the solution is sought. Just ask the folks of Greece.

    I believe the Brits are becoming aware the EU, with the accompanying
    Euro, is placing an overwhelming economic cost on each nation that
    will lead to its economic ruin.

    If the nations in the EU want more money (Euros) for more spending
    (deficit spending in the US), they have to each approve a bond issue
    that will obligate them to pay the principal and interest of that
    bond issue. The credit of each nation is pledged to the ECB which
    will manage the bond issue. Ultimate control is granted
    to the bank.

    This is the identical financial structure as in the U.S. The ECB will
    receive the pledged bonds and make a book entry issue of Euros that
    will be divided among the various nations. The nations will spend the
    fiat Euros thus created.

    [The ECB will claim they have “loaned” the Euros (as is similar in the
    US) but the book-entry money is not legal “consideration.” The
    claim of a loan is to convey an image only.]

    The ECB will sell the bonds and pocket the money. WOW !! The ECB just
    made a windfall profit. The ECB unquestionably has secret owners in
    Basel.

    The various nations have just saddled themselves with a huge debt that
    can never be paid off. The same destructive Ponzi scheme in the U.S.
    has been detailed at
    http://www.scribd.com/doc/48194264/rip-off-by-the-Federal-Reserve-revised

    I thinks the Brits are becoming aware of the economic tragedy inherent
    in the Euro and want out.

    If we wanted to analyze the Brexit in detail, I believe we can see the European Union is the same model as the treaties that are being negotiated by the U.S. – in secrecy. The policies of the International Monetary Fund and the World Bank should also be considered as guidelines. The same financial groups are involved in each of the above.

    Treaties and the EU each abrogate all legal protections that have been legislated by a nation. Commissions that have been staffed by financial entities decree mandates which govern all elements of affected society. This is in the same manner by which the IMF establishes conditionalities to enforce the debt of the IMF. The calamity to each nation has been observed by Michel Chossudovsky in GLOBALIZATION OF POVERTY.

    Businesses have become protected from local governing and legal process. Financial entities can be regulated only by an unidentified foreign body. Each
    involved nation becomes a vassal state of the organization. Rapacious
    profit for the financial entities is the only objective.

    Military entities will be brought in from foreign nations to guarantee compliance in
    the same manner the US military and the CIA enforce the IMF/WB debts.
    Ref. CONFESSIONS OF ECONOMIC HIT MAN by John Perkins. NATO is
    established to give a self-governing image for European nations.

    The EU is on steroids for Europe what the IMF/WB have done to the third
    world. It is a shame the U.S. (which continues to tolerate executive
    treaties) has not seen the same remedy as Britain.

    Interesting occurrence. A posted 2012 DB writing (cited on another website) at —

    http://www.thedailybell.com/news-analysis/eus-prodi-admits-leaders-knew-euro-would-cause-ruin-but-hoped-political-union-would-follow/

    acknowledges that the EU was established as a preliminary for the creation of the
    EURO. The EURO is the economic motivation. The humongous profit
    for the bankers has been detailed in previous writings in this thread.
