Germany’s President Christian Wulff is the being pressured to resign as part of a smear campaign being spearheaded by Bild newspaper.
The accusations by Bild newspaper that Wulff misled lawmakers over a mortgage loan have proven to be untrue. Nevertheless, they are being used by Bild newspaper to try to force popular President Christian Wulff from his position and allow him to be replaced by Finance Minister Wolfgang Schäuble, one of the Global elite, who has made his contempt for democracy and for the German Constitution clear.
The push to remove Wulff comes as the German Bundestag prepares to pass a law transferring the right to decide on taxes, budgets and spending to Brussels in flagrant violation of the German Constitution.
Schäuble was described by Ambrose Evans-Pritchard as the most dangerous man in the world,.for driving the eurozone into a depression by „imposing a reactionary policy of synchronized tightening on the whole eurozone…that has no record of success without offsetting monetary and exchange stimulus.” http://www.telegraph.co.uk/finance/financialcrisis/8903036/Spain-the-fifth-victim-to-fall-in-Europes-arc-of-depression.html
Schäuble recently also threatened the UK with the euro.
At the European Banking Congress in Frankfurt in November 18th, Schäuble made statements showing his total lack of respect for the rule of law and the German constitution.
“[I am] pretty convinced that we can change the European rules within 24 months so much that we can lay the foundation of a fiscal union,“ Schäuble said.
He said that the concepts of nation states, soveriegnty and international law belonged to an „absurd“ old order.
The old order may be absurd in the eyes of the Global elite but the German Constitution guarantees the souvereignty of the German people and that the Bundestag to set taxes, budgets and spending.
The Constitution can only be changed by a referendum and the agreement of the people.
The German Constitutional Court ruled in 2009 that the Bundetsag is prohibited from transferring power away from the people to another body by the guarantees for popular souvereignty in the Constitution.
The Constitution was adopted in 1949 and designed as a safeguard against another dictator like Adolf Hitler emerging. It forbids a repeat of the Enabling Act of 1933 when the parliament passed laws which abolished democracy and gave Adolf Hitler dictatorial powers.
The attempted coup against Wulff comes at a time when the German government plans to transfer the right to set taxes, budgets and spending to the EU without a popular referendum in violation of the Constitution.
The Bundestag has already signalled that it will allow this transfer of power leaving the President as the only political force still able to block the law by refusing his signature.
The fiscal austerity planned by Brussels is not only unconstitutional. It will also destroy the German economy and lead to mass unemployment and social upheaval.
The events of 2008-2011 parallel the events of 1931-33 in Germany when an engineered banking crisis was followed by draconian austerity. President Field Marshall Paul von Hindenburg appointed Adolf Hitler as Chancellor in 1933 in response to pressure from bankers and industrialists in spite of the fact the Nazis gained only about 30% of the share of the vote in the elections.
The head of Commerzbank Friedrich Reinhart – a banker bailout recipient in 1931 –and the head of the German central bank Hjalmar Schacht were among those who signed a letter in November 1932 asking Hindenburg to make Hitler Chancellor. http://de.wikipedia.org/wiki/Industrielleneingabe
The 1931 banking crisis was engineered in a very similar way to the 2008 banking crisis.
Another signatory of the letter calling on Hindenburg to make Hitler Chancellor was Eberhard Graf von Kalckreuth, a relation of Alexander von Kalckreuth, who is Karl Theodor zu Guttenberg’s lawyer.
Guttenberg has strong links to Bild newspaper which is spearheading the smear campaign against Wulff.
Bild gave full backing to Karl Theodor zu Guttenberg when he was caught plagarising most of his doctorate, showing that Bild has no interest in ethics. The aim is to smear Wulff and to remove a rival and obstacle to achieving total control over Germany’s political bodies.
Bild newspaper started an investigation in August into a 500,000 euro mortgage loan deal which Wulff closed with the wife of wealthy businessman, Egon Geerkens in 2008 when he was premier of Lower Saxony.
At a later point, Wulff was asked whether he had business links with Geerkens. At the time when Wulff answered the parliamentary questions, he did not have any more dealings with Geerkens because the mortgage had been cancelled.
His spokesman is right to say a “truthful ‘no’ was given to a non-ambiguous question.”
It can be argued that Wulff did not give the lawmakers the whole history of the mortgage loan but this fault is trivial compared to the plagarism by Guttenberg. It is certainly no reason for him to resign.
Wulff as president is a much stronger guarantee that Germany will remain democratic than if he is forced out and replaced by Schäuble.
Support Wulff! Stop the unconstitutional transfer of power to Brussels!
