Germany Anticipated This Financial Crisis—60 Years Ago

March 19, 2009 | From

Some Germans are not in the least bit surprised by the global economic collapse. Here’s why.

The Trumpet keeps a keen eye on Germany. For nearly two decades, the Trumpet staff has waited, watched and written about the emergence of a globally dominant, German-led bloc of European states. We have warned specifically that a spectacular global financial crisis, centered in the United States, will likely bring this event to fruition.

We are not entirely alone in this expectation.

The following is a snippet from a secret memorandum written by high-ranking German officers and distributed among an elite group of German leaders in Bonn and other parts of the world. It is an electrifying picture of current events.

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.

That was written in 1950. It can be found in T.H. Tetens’ 1953 book, Germany Plots With the Kremlin.

It’s prescience is chilling.
