What the United States and their global corporations call “Free Trade Agreement” (TTIP) has been compared to NATO by former US-vice president Biden. It is meant to subject Europe to American economic domination and their interests. This has an inner and an outer goal:
This seizure of power over Europe by means of economy politics and commercial law with the help of TTIP is accompanied with attacks on economic strongholds, mainly in Germany, which are not yet controlled by the US. The main target is currently Volkswagen.
Twice General Motors has attempted to take over “the fat VW” by means of unlimited Fed credits. The first time they were beaten by the Porsche family, the second time their lawsuit against Lower Saxony Law at VW (stipulating a vetoing power) was rejected. Now they are trying to bleed VW for a third time, through US lawyers and administrations commissioned by them. The goal is to weaken VW, to make it cheap, in order to be able to take it over for a lower price.
Were VW to try a reciprocal coup in the US, the US government would immediately intervene and declare the transaction a violation of national security. The real current VW scandal is that the German government is not backing VW, that it is obviously more loyal to the US power than to the over a hundred thousand VW employees.
If we allow the Americans to destroy VW in favour of the two American competitors Ford and Opel (General Motors), Germany will lose one of its economic beacons, not only on the national but also on the international level. This illustrates what the US will undertake also against the others of our corporations and know-how monopolists, with the help of US law installed in Germany through TTIP.
And thus it is not surprising that a government that keeps silent about the destruction of VW also tolerates and even supports the seizure of power of the German economy by US corporations. A destruction campaign like the one the US has launched against VW would be inconceivable conversely for Germans in America – and it would not be tolerated by any US government or any Congress. This demonstrates again the worth of a contract between a powerful (the US) and a powerless partner (EU) if it is negotiated between a global power on the one side and its puppet officials on the other (EU Commission) and if the officials of the employers’ association pursue their corporations’ interests, against the majority of their medium-sized member companies.
The importance of the US economic seizure of power over Europe for the US president is demonstrated by Obama’s plan to visit the Hanover Fair in order to “align politics and economy in favour of TTIP.” •
