Daniel Hannan’s letter of warning to America

This is an interview by the Hoover Institution with Daniel Hannan in America about his new book “A new road to serfdom (subtitled: A letter of warning to America” Forgetting politics for a minute, this is one of the best interviews I have ever seen. It is quiet, gentlemanly, and friendly. But, a little warning, don’t look at this until you have thirty-five minutes to spare, it is a long interview and you really won’t want to stop. When you have seen this you may well agree with my feelings that it is no wonder that David Cameron has sidelined this extremely intelligent and informed young man to the EU. He would fear him too much if he were in the British Parliament!

He is not of my party but I am always willing to give credit where it is due.

    Well, as a Deist, I don’t necessary agree with your references to Revelations, but I think you are leaning in the right direction here.

    So many are wondering whether this could be heralding the end of the EU but I certainly don’t think so! I would go further and won’t be surprised if the EU Commissioners start talking up the problem being due to each country controlling its own finances, so start rapidly moving to a total centralised treasury run by an European chancellor, thus removing all control of a member state over its finances.

    In 1790, Mayer Amschel Rothschild stated, “Let me issue and control a nation’s money and I care not who writes the laws.” And I read on Yahoo Answers that the Rothschild family have a total worth of 500 trillion dollars. Invested at the present half a percent, and paying taxes at the top 50p rate, this would bring $3.4 billion into the family each day.

    Daniel Hannan, warns against global governance; but I believe that out of the European Sovereign Debt Crisis, a global sovereign and a global seignior will arise to power.

    Philip Aldrick of the Telegraph reports that Mr Strauss-Kahn criticised Europe’s disjointed response to the eurozone sovereign debt banking crisis after Germany and other states resisted his calls for bolder action on Tuesday December 7, 2010 warning that “piecemeal” fixes would not work and a “comprehensive” solution is needed.

    Germany and France are pushing for an EU summit the week ending December 17, 2010, to approve a proposed treaty change that would allow debt-stricken euro zone states to make an orderly default, with private sector bondholders sharing losses on a case-by-case basis. However eurozone finance ministers did not agree on any new action this week to stop the crisis, making investors wary.

    I note that Dominique Strauss-Kahn has given “the clarion call” for a comprehensive solution to the European Financial Institution, Sovereign Debt Symbiosis Crisis.

    I believe the Strauss-Kahn call for a comprehension solution will go unanswered.

    A catastrophe is coming out of rising sovereign debt interest rates, as well out of further global competitive currency devaluations at the hands of the currency traders, resulting in a financial market place implosion, the European Financial Institutions, EUFN, will fall quickly falling in value, taking the entire global financial system down, resulting in Götterdämmerung, an investment flame out, bringing forth a new age.

    And the accompanying rise to power of a Sovereign-Chancellor, Revelation 13:5-10, such as Angela Merkel or Herman van Rompuy or John Redwood; and also a Seignior-Banker, Revelation, 13:11-17, such as Wolfgang Schäuble, or Olli Rehn, or Jean-Claude Trichet, or Gordon Brown, with fiscal sovereignty to control deficit spending, enforce internal country devaluations, provide a common EU Treasury for both taxation and transfer payments, assure mutual guarantees of the EU debt, and as Timothy Geithner called for, implement unified regulation of banking globally. All seigniorage, both credit and fiscal will come and go through the Seignior, who will make decisions on where money is spent.
