Stephen Bailey: Building the European superstate – The EU’s covert programme to create a country called the United States of Europe


BStephen Bailey. Serialisation – Part 1 of 3.

Any comprehensive examination of the process of the creation and subsequent expansion of the European Project, the European Economic Community (sometimes also referred to in the shortened form of the European Community) and since February 1992 the E.U., clearly reveals certain extremely disturbing covert trends and common themes running through the whole process. 

Ostensibly began as simply a trading bloc based on cooperation for mutual economic benefit (and even as supposedly a ‘peace project’ designed to promote cooperation between the states of Europe and so prevent another devastating war after the destruction of 1939 – 45), it’s subsequent development down the decades since 1945 has shown that there is a another purpose being secretly pursued behind the scenes by the bureaucrats of Brussels – nation building. 

‘The nations of Europe should be guided towards the superstate without their people knowing what is happening. This can be accomplished by successive steps each disguised as having an economic purpose, but which eventually and irreversibly lead to federation.’

– Jean Monnet, French political economist and one of the chief architects of post World War Two European integration. . 

During the dark days at the beginning of the Second World War in 1940, when it became obvious that the German blitzkrieg was about to overwhelm the French Army, a little known French political economist called Jean Monnet proposed that, in order to keep the Allied war effort going, there should be a political union between the United Kingdom and France in an Anglo-British union that would see France become part of the United Kingdom. This plan was put to Winston Churchill by the newly appointed French Defence Minister in Paul Reynaud’s government, Charles de Gaulle, an equally little known junior general, at a meeting in London on June 16th 1940. 

Churchill was sceptical (as was de Gaulle) but eventually agreed and de Gaulle rang Reynaud at 4.30 P.M. that afternoon.

He agreed to put this proposition to the French cabinet. This he did, but by this time, many elements in the French Government and military High Command had become overwhelmed by defeatism, conditioned by several factors. These included anger at the perceived betrayal by the U.K. for leaving the French Army on the beaches of Dunkirk (in fact a hundred thousand French servicemen had also been rescued by the British Navy from France and evacuated to the U.K. to fight on) and, it must be said, an anti-Semitic feeling in certain quarters (Philippe Petain and Pierre Laval were two notable examples). A ‘peace’ faction grew up around Petain that perpetrated the myth that France’s military disaster was ‘the work of the Jews’ and that France had been betrayed and abandoned by her traditional enemy, the U.K. 

Petain asserted that the U.K. was as good as defeated anyway and the proposed joining of the two countries would therefore be ‘fusion with a corpse’. Another cabinet member said: ‘Better to be a Nazi province. At least we know what that means’. Consequently, the Cabinet rejected the union plan, France’s military position subsequently deteriorated rapidly and Reynaud resigned, to be replaced by Petain, who sought an armistice with the Germans.

The idea of the sovereign states of Europe being joined into one country, a United States of Europe, was certainly not new. In the Twentieth Century, this idea had first been seriously proposed in Wilhelmine Germany, during the First World War. Germany was to be the centre of a unified European bloc consisting of the defeated nation states of Europe, who would have their economies controlled from Berlin and run to benefit Germany. Political power was to be centralised in Germany. Military defeat in 1918 forestalled this plan, but the concept remained in the minds of certain intellectuals, military men and economists, especially, but not exclusively, in Germany.

If Hitler had won the Second World War, he would have imposed a version of a Europe united under the military domination of Germany, with the nation states of Europe being reduced to vassals with mere cypher governments that run them for the benefit of Germany (see below under ‘Walter Funk’ for further details on this). 

A plan for a ‘European Confederation’ was drafted in 1943 under Nazi Foreign Minister Joachim von Ribbentrop, which spoke of the ‘common destiny of European peoples’. 

However, as the war progressed and it became completely clear to the German High Command after the German defeat at the tank Battle of Kursk, which took place between 5th – 23rd July 1943, that they were definitely going to lose the war, they began to make preparations for how Germany could rise as a country, and indeed dominate Europe, in the post war world. To this end, the High Command held a series of meetings in 1944, the most important of which was held at the Hotel Maison in Strasbourg on 10th August. These meetings are known about because a French spy had successfully managed to infiltrate them and wrote ‘The Red House Report’ covering what was said there for Allied Intelligence.

The Strasbourg meetings were attended by an elite group of German industrialists (including representatives from Volkswagen, Krupp and Messerschmitt), as well as certain elements from the military (Army and Navy) and the Ministry of Armaments. These industrialists were to work with the Nazi Party to rebuild Germany’s economy by sending money through Switzerland. They would build up a network of front companies around the globe. 

It was decided that, unlike the Third Reich, the new Germany would control Europe economically rather than militarily. After defeat in 1945, powerful ex-Nazi bankers, industrialists and civil servants, reborn as democrats, penetrated every sphere of life in the new post-war Germany. A number of the leading figures in the Nazi state, including the economy, politics, Civil Service and armed forces became leading builders of the European Union. There, they worked for a new cause: European economic and political integration, the creation of a European political and Economic Union under German control.

Other members of the Nazi elite were also involved in the planning for post-war German European financial hegemony. Otto Ohlendorf, a highly educated, intelligent lawyer and economist, attached to the Ministry of Economics, was one such person. He became interested in the works of another German economist called Ludwig Erhard. Erhard had written a lengthy treatise on the transition to a post-war economy after Germany’s defeat. Erhard considered how German industry could expand its reach across the shattered nation states of the European continent. The answer, he thought, was through supranationalism, or the voluntary surrender of national sovereignty to an external central international body. The stage was set for the post war decades of Germany’s attempts (aided by their old enemy, now ally, France) to build their new informal empire – the European Economic Community, soon to transform itself into the European Union.

Ohlendorf was also an S.S. functionary and Holocaust perpetrator. He was head of the Sicherheitsdienst Inland, responsible for intelligence and security within Germany. In 1941, Ohlendorf was appointed the commander of Einsatzgruppe D, which was responsible for mass murder in Moldova, South Ukraine, the Crimea, and, during 1942, the North Caucasus. He was prosecuted at the Einsatzgruppen Trial, convicted, and executed in 1951. 

The E.U. was founded and initially led by former Nazi and Italian Fascist officials, functionaries and a number of their associated fellow travellers, as was the Charlemagne Prize which has been awarded to Tony Blair, Edward Heath, Roy Jenkins and others for their role in removing democratic sovereignty from the nation states of Europe and handing it to the bloc. 

The E.U. has today reproduced the policies and structures of Nazi and Fascist controlled 1940s Europe and shows all the characteristics of a totalitarian anti-democratic informal empire.
