Obama Elites' European Solution ^ | November 18, 2011 | John Ransom

Posted on 11/18/2011 7:03:01 AM PST by Kaslin

Man’s conquest of Nature, if the dreams of some scientific planners are realized, means the rule of a few hundreds of men over billions upon billions of men.- C.S. Lewis, The Abolition of Man  

In Greece and Italy two unelected prime ministers, with banking backgrounds similar to members of our own government, have sworn to rescue their countries for the Euro

Liberty, Fraternity and Currency!

And they will save their countries by bringing to bear the expertise of every “non elected pipe smoking and tweed wearing university don,” in the Daily Mail’s derisive phrase, to tackle the problem of the Great European Society- which, incidentally, was created by a bunch of non elected, pipe smoking and tweed wearing academics stuck in the 1960s.    

In Italy, Mario Monti of Yale University, the European Commission, the Trilateral Commission and the Bilderberg Group has formed a government of “technocrats” who, like members of Obama’s administration, contains a number of high academic degrees and have experience in government bureaucracies but offer little else.

They form a government of so-called “government financial experts.” In short they are the technocrats who thought up the debt scheme that now hangs around the neck of the world.  

Monti’s cabinet has no elected officials.

Oh, this should work out well, I say as I cover my eyes.  

“Monti gave few hints about his political program Wednesday,” reports the Associated Press.

“Explaining why his Cabinet had no one from Italy's fractious political parties, Monti said he decided after talks with party leaders ‘that the non-presence of politicians in the government would help it.’"

Yet later he observed that “I hope that, governing well, we can make a contribution to the calming and the cohesion of the political forces."

Yes, nothing like an Italian dictatorship of technocrats to calm the political forces.

Mussolini’s Black Shirts would be proud.

They had to march on Rome to gain power.

Who knew all you had to do was drive Italy into bankruptcy?

I wonder if the Italians plan on invading Ethiopia soon?

Too late, I guess: We already invaded Libya on their behalf.

“The EIA showed that Libya’s No. 1 customer is Italy,” says PolitiFact, “which bought 28 percent of Libya’s [oil] exports in 2010.”

In Greece, Lucas Papademos of MIT, visiting professor at the Kennedy School of Government at Harvard University, professor at Columbia University, Senior Economist at the Federal Reserve Bank of Boston and member of, you guessed it, the Trilateral Commission, also instituted a government of technocrats this week in Athens.

“Mr Papademos, an unelected former banker,” says the BBC “leads an interim cabinet of technocrats backed by the leading parties.”

There's an echo in here.

And why wouldn’t they support him? They all went to the same schools or joined the same club or worked for the same bank.

Liberty, Currency and Fraternities!

Ben Bernanke for President? Or Tim Geithner?  

If you have any doubt about where all this headed in the US, then just take a look at Geithner's response to constitutional questions on the Euro crisis care of  the

At yesterday's WSJ CEO Council participants got to see what Treasury Secretary Timothy Geithner really thinks about constitutions and the law. 

While being questioned by Rupert Murdoch's top lieutenant, Robert Thomson, the topic of the Eurozone crisis came up and the need, in Geithner's view, that the European Central Bank should step in and buy Eurozone bonds whenever required. The problem with this is that it is against the ECB constitution that was approved by the EZ members when the ECB was formed.

So does Geithner see a problem with this constitutional limitation? Not really.

He said, in a somewhat irritated fashion, that "there are ways to get around these things". So much for constitutions. Then he added. "It's not rocket science [to get around these things]".

And there you have Geithner's view on laws, agreements and constitutions. There are ways to get around them.

That’s what the world has come to: We’re begging the people who put this clown car over the cliff on purpose to write us a white paper about it when what we really need is a parachute to stop our rapid descent.

“Don’t worry,” the technocrats have told us. “As long as we keep falling we’re fine. It’s hitting the ground that causes the real trauma.”

I don’t believe in the Trilateral and Bilderberg conspiracies. But I do believe that our world leadership suffers from a severe case of intellectual, political and corporate inbreeding that’s led them to dangerous defects in their vision for which there is no cure.   

Where were Papademos and Monti as the world climbed the debt wall? Or Bernanke or Geithner? They were teaching bankers how to do it, that’s where.

“No lesson seems to be so deeply inculcated by the experience of life as that you should never trust experts,” wrote Robert Cecil, the 3rd Marquess of Salisbury. “If you believe doctors, nothing is wholesome: if you believe the theologians, nothing is innocent: if you believe the soldiers, nothing is safe.”

And when we put the central planners in charge, then all we are left with is Currencies and Fraternities!Liberty, then, while cheap, will no longer be free.

Germany has no military, nor can they afford one with their socialism. They are building their empire by controlling the banking system to bankrupt their “allies” into submission, and in turn letting their “allies” fund Germany’s defense via the EU so the German people, content retiring at 55 and having 3 months vacation every year, have little reason to put up an opposition. Merkel really doesn’t care if England joins the Euro as long as she can control them, their military, and their weapons via the EU so the master race can have their socialism.

Where do you get the idea that German people retire at 55? They have never retired at 55. It’s always been 65 and has lifted up to 67. And where do you get the idea that Germans get 3 month vacation every year? The labor laws in Germany are governed by the German constitution, called Basic law. German law sets out specific time for paid and unpaid leave. Vacation time is customarily between four and six weeks, that is far short from 3 month. They get up to six weeks sick leave, but they have to pay their share for it through their insurance
