Beyond Trump’s EU climate gambit

Will US President Donald John Trump’s taking America out of the Paris Climate Agreement cause wider problems for European Union elites?

Beyond Trump's EU climate gambit

As you’ve doubtless already heard, Trump announced yesterday that the US is pulling out of the Paris Climate Accord: Something in the Matrix just changed, and big-time.

To anyone paying attention, Trump’s cuts to the US Environmental Protection Agency budget, announced in March, gave an advance signal of the skeptical President’s disdain for the climate change lobby. He particularly didn’t appreciate its crippling implications for US jobs and industry.

So whether or not you like the Donald, this is a HUGE game-changer in world geopolitics. And this is only the start.

Indeed, newly elected, Vichy-style French President Emmanuel Macron reacted swiftly to the announcement by inviting pro-warming scientists to seek exile in France. Whether “97% of all scientists” in the US will leave for France’s budding caliphate is yet to be seen.

And unelected EU chief Jean-Claude Juncker is already lashing out against Trump, as are other European politicians. It must be clear to Juncker that a German-driven EU must now accelerate its existing plans for further economic integration through forced adoption of the Euro currency across all member states in an attempt (one perhaps futile) to avoid otherwise total disintegration of the bloc.

For example, Europe’s Visegrad nations – Czech Republic, Hungary, Poland and Slovakia – remain united in their resistance to overreach by the EU, perhaps because of increasingly striking similarities to the remotely planned Soviet Union they escaped from just over a quarter century ago.

Germany is by far the richest economy in the EU right now, even as it metes out disabling levels of austerity to the likes of Italy, Greece, Spain, Portugal and any other economically troubled members through a weaponised International Monetary Fund and ailing central banks.

This centralised control of Europe seems to be an attempt by Juncker and German Chancellor Angela Merkel to find success where previous world wars have failed for Germany. Their reaction to Trump’s hostile US may lift any remaining veil on the EU’s true ambitions in coming days, weeks and months.

Most interestingly, Juncker’s father-in-law was a proponent of Nazi Germany and reportedly helped initiate early stages of the Holocaust. There are also allegations across the internet that the EU chief is heir to a family fortune amassed by manufacturing armaments for Adolph Hitler’s Third Reich.

Consider too that Juncker recently stepped up his demands for the formation a ‘European Army’ – something he’s been calling for regularly over recent years and which Germany supports fully.

Perhaps the need to find recruits for such an army explains the EU’s otherwise incomprehensible open-doors policy of importing terror onto the European Continent. An overwhelming majority of “Syrian refugees” are military-aged men from other Middle East and North African countries – potential ‘stormtroopers”?

Also, Germany is seeking to restrict free speech by fining social media companies for publishing so-called “hate speech” and “extremism”. At a time of rising populism, of distrust for the EU project, this development is surely very reminiscent of book-burning from darker times one might have hoped we’d all learned from.

Trump has read the current geopolitical situation and acted. Now we can only watch events unfold.

This could be a very rough ride, and the world really never will be the same again.
