A Fourth Reich?


We all know Germany lost the war militarily in 1945; however, as documented in the Red House Report, which lays out a secret three-stage strategy for the Fourth Reich by Nazi industrialists, it appears that this plan for a strong German empire has, in some part at least, come to pass.
In stage one, the industrialists were to 'prepare themselves to finance the Nazi Party, which would be forced to go underground as a Maquis', using the term for the French resistance.

In stage two would see the government allocating large sums to German industrialists to establish a 'secure post-war foundation in foreign countries', while 'existing financial reserves must be placed at the disposal of the party so that a strong German empire can be created after the defeat'.

In stage three, German businesses would set up a 'sleeper' network of agents abroad through front companies, which were to be covers for military research and intelligence, until the Nazis returned to power"
For years, the Nazis had been covertly sending funds through neutral countries.  Martin Bormann, "an unquestioned genius of finance and administration", who set up "750 corporations throughout the world as depositories of money, patents, bearer bonds, and shares of blue chip industries of the US and Europe," informed a gathering of Nazi industrialists on August 10, 1944, at Strasbourg, of his flight-of-capital--to-safe havens state policy, which was launched immediately after this meeting.
"The war cannot be won by us; we must take steps in preparation for a postwar commercial campaign." - Martin Bormann, August 10, 1944
A 1943 FBI report stated:
After the rupture of diplomatic relations with the Axis by various countries of Latin America, the Axis began to use Argentina as the base of its espionage and sabotage activities against all American nations. It had been established that from this base of operations the Germans have spread the net of their subversive organizations to at least ten American countries, and that as a result of their work a large number of American lives, considerable American property, and the lives and property of the citizens and countries of the united nations which are engaged in the struggle against the totalitarian powers have been lost.
"The Economic Miracle"

Under the Marshall Plan, the money that was pumped into the economy arrived at the right time to rebuild German infrastructure.  But it was Martin Bormann who set the foundation for postwar recovery.  Because juxtaposed to the "Marshall Plan" funds, the  money funneled to "neutral" countries, under Bormann, and private investments from Swiss banks began to flow back into Germany, so that by 1951, 1936 levels of production were reached.The Korean War boosted the German economy to an "era of booming good times" when the Pentagon placed huge orders in West Germany to supply its needs for armies in Korea.

The following is from a secret memorandum written by high-ranking German officers and distributed among an elite group of German leaders in 1950. It can be found in T.H. Tetens’ 1953 book, Germany Plots With the Kremlin.

"Economic difficulties will one day plunge the United States down from its present dizzy heights. Such a catastrophe can be brought about through crafty manipulations and through artificially engendered crises. Such maneuvers are routine measures which have already been employed in international power struggle and will be used again and again as long as economic rivals fight for power positions and markets in the world.

It is quite conceivable that America, weakened by a depression, will one day seek support from a resurrected Germany. Such a prospect would open tremendous possibilities for the future power position of a bloc introducing a new order in the world."
Today, Germany is an economic powerhouse. While Spain suffers an unemployment rate of 23.3% and the rest of the euro zone, 10.7% Germany's unemployment rate continues to decline, their trade surplus, the largest in the world.

Recently, in addition to trying to reignite the debate over creating a EU constitution, and imposing financial sanctions on Hungary, while slamming their constitution, leaders of the EU nations signed a German-driven fiscal compact treaty on March 2, to enforce EU deficit-cutting and debt reduction rules more strictly. 

What about the German military?

Well, look out for the young aristocrat, Baron Karl Theodor Maria Nikolaus Johann Jacob Philipp Franz Joseph Sylvester Freiherr von und zu Guttenberg - or, for short, Baron Karl-Theodor zu Guttenberg - who took Germany by storm for a little while in 2009. Before age 40, he was the German Defense Minister, and one of the most popular politicians in Germany. In an interview, the Mayor of Guttenberg told journalists: “His correct title is Reichsfreiherr Baron of the Holy Roman Empire!

While in office, he set out to redesign the German military. In Nov. 2010, he said that Germany should "use military force" at a security conference in Berlin. He urged Germany to “be prepared to use its military to defend the country’s economic interests.” He then noted that the competing demands of nations today for raw materials made it imperative that Germany—a nation whose export-driven economy is heavily dependent upon imported raw materials—should be prepared to use its military forces to secure trade routes for raw materials and exported goods.

His wife, “Stephanie, a Luthern, (Baron Guttenberg is an ecumenical Catholic) is a great-granddaughter of Otto von Bismarck, the founder and “Iron Chancellor” of the 19th-century German empire." Unfortunately, for him, he resigned over a plagarism issue, and is currently a "distinguished statesman" at the Centre for Strategic and International Studies” in the US. Nevertheless, I wouldn't count him out just yet.
