The German deep state was largely rebooted by the US deep state after the German defeat in WW2.

The German deep state was re-booted after WW2 by the occupying powers. This put the Western portion under the control of the US deep state, UK deep state and to a lesser extent the French deep state.

History

WW1

Full article: WW1

World War I saw the eclipse of the British Empire, and influence shift across the Atlantic from London to Washington.

Interwar years

After its military defeat, the US deep state invested in Germany. Antony Sutton has documented the assistance provided to Germany by The Money Trust. Sullivan and Cromwell were involved in assisting German companies.[How?][citation needed]

Chancellor Walther Rathenau signed the Treaty of Rapallo with the Soviet Union on 16 April 1922, "in a spirit of mutual goodwill in meeting the economic needs of both countries". Thereby they bypassed the weak status of both countries after WW1, and created great shock amongst the victorious Western Powers. One month later, on 24 June 1922, Rathenau was assassinated.[citation needed]

WW2

Adam LeBor reportedly unearthed documents about the Red House meeting in 1944, in which senior members of the German Deep state planned how to handle the defeat of Hitler. OpJB is an ostensibly non-fiction book about a successful UK operation to rescue Martin Bormann from Berlin at the end of the war.

1945-1949

The unprecedented violence of World War II necessitated a high profile "denazification" process. The Nuremberg Trials provided a visible aspect of this. Meanwhile Operation Paperclip exfiltrated people of interest to the United States and ratlines provided another avenue of escape from Germany.

Intelligence Services

Reinhard Gehlen, the head of Nazi intelligence, transitioned seamlessly to BND President after the war since the Gehlen Organization that he headed was invaluable to US Military intelligence. When the CIA was created in 1947, Gehlen reported to them, rather than the US military.

1950s

During the 1950s, the Stay Behind network, recruited mainly from former SS-members, made death lists of prominent people in the WDR[Where?][citation needed]. These lists included large parts of the Social Democrat leadership.

1960s

Franz Josef Strauß was a regular visitor to Le Cercle. He stepped down as defence minister in 1962 after it emerged that he had had Rudolf Augstein, owner and editor-in-chief of Der Spiegel, arrested and imprisoned for 103 days.

In 1963, when Chancellor Konrad Adenauer showed too much inclination to support the French vision of Europe over the American one, he was deposed 1963 by intrigues from the transatlantic deep state networks.

Kurt-Georg Kiesinger was a member of the Bundestag who attended 5 Bilderberg meetings from September 1955 to 1960. The Langemann papers revealed that the BND stole documents from US archives which implicated him in Nazi war crimes. He was Chancellor of Germany for nearly 3 years at the end of the 1960s.

1970s

Social Democrat Chancellor Willy Brandt, having shown too much foreign policy independence, had to resign after being entrapped by his own/US spy services in the Guillaume affair.

1980s

Oktoberfest Bombing.jpg
Full article: Oktoberfest Bombing

In 1980, the Oktoberfest Bombing killed 13 people. It was blamed on a "lone nut" neo-nazi, Gundolf Köhler.

Scott Thompson reported in 1982 that Helmut Schmidt's coalition government was taken down by participants of Le Cercle.[1]

The death of German politician Uwe Barschel in a hotel room in 1987 was officially ruled a suicide but many later independent investigations have shown that this was in fact a liquidation, and that Barschel had deep ties to arms smuggling networks in "Iran-Contra".

The assassination of the freethinking businessman Alfred Herrhausen was officially ascribed to the murky 'third wave' of the Red Army Faction, and the remnants of the group even claimed responsibility. But the murder might well have been because of some of his more unorthodox positions, like debt cancellation for the third world, which might have stepped on too many banking toes, leading to him being publicly accused of "un-solidaric behavior"[citation needed] by other bankers.

21st century

  • German intelligence agencies are reported[By whom?] to be collaborating with Neo-nazi terrorist groups including the the NSU. There is a significant overlap between police informers and active leaders in these groups.[citation needed]
  • Neo-nazis are given a free hand in Germany to recruit to the Nazi Azov-battalion in the Ukraine, creating a potential network for future Gladio-like operations.
  • When liberal (FDP) politican and Foreign Minister Guido Westerwelle showed too much independence, he was ousted after a media campaign. In 2010, leaked U.S. diplomatic cables revealed that American diplomats considered Westerwelle an obstacle to deeper transatlantic relations. The final straw was his opposition to the attack on Libya in 2011, and he was forced to resign.[citation needed]
  • The transatlantic deep state networks, controlled by the CIA, are actively working to create tensions between Russia and Germany, including sabotaging business relations, like the Nord Stream 2 gas pipeline.[citation needed]

The Press

Connections of the chief editors in the German corporate media: Stefan Kornelius, Josef Joffe, Michael Stürmer, Klaus-Dieter Frankenberger, Kai Diekmann

When the German Press was reestablished after WW2, both new and old media outlets needed certification from the occupation authorities. This gave a massive head start for the ones getting licenses. These structures that have dominated the press since then were established in this era; basically a certain permissible spectrum from conservative to liberal, but every single one loyal to the transatlantic connections.

The control was both on a personal level, where chief editors and influential journalists were recruited to deep state networks (see Atlantik-Brücke, German Marshall Fund), and on the ownership side where all permitted media outlets had to show the right attitude (see the Bild Zeitung manifesto). These mechanisms are still active today.

The Civil Service

The official denazification in West Germany petered out after a few years, due to the need for competent allies in the fight against Communism. High ranking members of the former Nazi party soon dominated the West German civil service.

Hans Globke, responsible for codifying the Nuremberg Race Laws, is the most prominent example of this continuity. In the Adenauer era in the 1950s, he was the “gray eminence” and closest confidante of the chancellor, responsible for personnel policy, cabinet work, the establishment and control of the foreign intelligence service BND and the internal intelligence service, and for questions of the CDU party leadership. He was severely criticized at home and abroad, but he was always protected by the government, the BND and the CIA.

The Langemann Papers were a set of documents revealed by Hans Langemann.

"Conspiracy theory"“There is in Italy a power which we seldom mention in this House ... I mean the secret societies... It is useless to deny, because it is impossible to conceal, that a great part of Europe — the whole of Italy and France and a great portion of Germany, to say nothing of other countries — is covered with a network of these secret societies, just as the superficies of the earth is now being covered with railroads. And what are their objects? They do not attempt to conceal them. They do not want constitutional government; they do not want ameliorated institutions ... they want to change the tenure of land, to drive out the present owners of the soil and to put an end to ecclesiastical establishments.
