The EU’s Beastly Fines
“Intel faces biggest-ever EU competition fine,” ran the May 13 Daily Telegraph headline. The story reported the bombshell news that the European competition commissioner had slapped the American microchip maker with a $1.45 billion penalty. It was the second time within two years that the European Union had slammed record fines on an American computer company.
The rank hypocrisy of EU elites is mind-boggling. Keep in mind, we are speaking here of the most undemocratic political and economic combine in the world, an institution that consistently fails its annual audit and which promptly sacks anyone who blows the whistle on its multibillion-dollar wastage and fraud. This is the trading bloc, the most dominant in the world, that cries foul when free enterprise interferes with its grab for global economic might.
These fines reveal the true problem: Europe’s mindset. It is anti-Anglo Saxon, anti-free-enterprise, and determined to see the end of America’s status as a perceived superpower.
Yet long-time students of the history of postwar Europe ought not be surprised. It’s the outcome of an agenda that certain European elites have been nourishing for the past 65 years. The fines are but a harbinger of things to come as EU leaders gear up for a showdown with the United States.
Europe’s Long-Term Strategy
Anyone who seeks to understand the EU’s agenda should realize the long-term strategy that has been in play since its inception: a strategy to destroy the Anglo-American economies and replace their postwar dominance with a European imperial power having its economic and political hub in Berlin, its bureaucracy in Brussels, and its spiritual headquarters in Rome.
This strategy is as ancient as the Holy Roman Empire. In fact, it tracks right back to mother Babylon, when the Chaldeans and Assyrians seized the wealth of ancient Israel and Judah. It’s an intriguing history that our book The United States and Britain in Prophecy explains in detail (request your free copy).
Herbert Armstrong consistently pointed to the reality—long known by the upper echelons of Anglo-American intelligence services, many of whom were clearly compromised by, if not complicit in, its dealings—that the Nazis went underground toward the end of World War ii. They established a global network of seemingly legitimate business fronts, financed by Nazi loot channeled to them at locations all over the world—especially in Latin America, the Middle East and Spain, but also to covert Nazi cells in the U.S., Canada, Australia and certain African countries.
Underground Nazi operations were funded with cash and bullion that flowed from Switzerland, through the Vatican, to a laundry of overseas operations. Much of the wealth returned to Germany to aid the Wirtchaftswunder, the economic “miracle” by which Germany so speedily returned to normalcy to once again become the powerhouse of Europe following the devastation of World War ii.
The details of this Nazi web of intrigue have been published in such accounts as Sigrid Schuktz’s Germany Will Try It Again, Mark Aarons and John Loftus’s two bestsellers, Unholy Trinity and The Secret War Against the Jews, Martin Lee’s The Beast Awakens and Adam LeBor’s Hitler’s Secret Bankers, among numerous other well-researched publications.
Indeed, an uncanny similarity exists between the attainments of the EU and the goals of the underground Nazis who worked for the revival of Germany as the dominant power in Europe. Overwhelming evidence shows that the success of postwar German industry, banking and commerce is directly attributable to the efforts of the underground Nazi strategy that have worked to produce today’s greatest global trading entity, the EU. And that “German economic miracle—so vital to the idea of a new Europe—was built on mass murder,” wrote Adam LeBor in London’s Mail Online. “The number of slave and forced laborers who died while employed by German companies in the Nazi era was 2,700,000” (May 9). Added to this was the massive loot gained from the Nazi plundering of Jewish assets in the Holocaust, which slaughtered 6 million Jews.
It is this entity that now has the gall to bring a record fine against an American corporation for questionable business practices.
Seizing the Moment
The grave danger that Anglo-America faces from Berlin, Brussels and Rome seems beyond the comprehension of the present U.S. and British governments. Their apparent knowledge of history is shallow, their moral base deeply warped.
Since World War ii, these Europeans have smarted under the dominance of the Anglo-American way of doing things. Now, the Anglo-Americans’ days as influential world powers are clearly numbered. EU elites perceive the inherent, irrecoverable weakness of the Anglo-Saxon economies and the apparent ineptness of their current administrations. They are seizing their moment to make their presence felt.
This latest ridiculous fine on Intel by the European Commission is just one more indicator of the bullying character of the EU, of which we can expect much more. Even now, an EU clone, the Financial Stability Board—to which the world’s top 20 economies recently yielded control of their chief banking and commercial enterprises—is planning the method and the timing of moves destined to suddenly fulfill dramatic and fearful prophecies in your Bible.
To read these prophecies in Revelation chapters 13, 17 and 18 can be quite chilling if one sees them in the context of current events. Yet read on! Read to the end of the story in the final chapters of Revelation. There’s the real hope for the future!
What is currently building on the world scene today is but a harbinger of the best news of all—the imminent return of the Savior of mankind to finally set this world on the track to peace among nations, abundance of national blessings, and to the ultimate fulfillment of the incredible human potential for which that same Savior created man!
