Former German Defense Minister Karl-Theodor zu Guttenberg discussed the future of the Christian Social Union (csu) with party chief Horst Seehofer and other prominent figures in a quiet castle hotel in Neufahrn, Lower Bavaria, over the weekend of March 11. Anytime Guttenberg makes an appearance in Germany, rumors of a possible comeback are in the air—not so this time. This time the comeback is real. It’s a small start, but this return to politics will give him and his party an indication as to whether the population is ready for more.
“Just the radiance of the name Guttenberg can be witnessed in Neufahrn. tv cameras, photographers, journalists: Everything is ready for when the charismatic nobleman flies from the U.S.A. to the homeland,” German news website Stern reported (Trumpet translation throughout).
Guttenberg will support the csu in the Bundestag election campaign and take a key advisory position in foreign-policy issues. The formercss star will reportedly hold a campaign in each of the seven Bavarian government districts in the weeks leading up to the election. “If, however, the csu feels that his appearance would be more damaging than good, he will immediately withdraw, Guttenberg explained in an internal round,” Süddeutsche Zeitung reported.
Party leader Seehofer said he was “very grateful” for this development. “I consider it a very noble offer that he will support us in one or the other event,” he said, noting that Guttenberg is not looking for a position but rather “wants to help his family, his csu.”
One of Germany’s major daily regional newspapers, Rheinische Post, suggested that Guttenberg’s appearance in the campaigns “will also serve as a test”as to whether Guttenberg will once again “ignite” the people. “His fans as well as his opponents are likely to agree that Guttenberg will take advantage of this second opportunity. And then? ‘Now we focus on winning the elections, and then we’ll see more,’ says Seehofer in front of the Neufahrner castle. Guttenberg smiles, leaning relaxed against one of the state carriages.”
While in office, Guttenberg was Germany’s most popular politician. The csu remembers all too well the great popularity it enjoyed with him. But he was ousted from his post as defense minister when the University of Bayreuth stripped him of his doctorate for plagiarism. Guttenberg said the plagiarism in his doctoral thesis was inadvertent and occurred during a busy time in his life; he resigned as a result. The question now is, will his comeback once again stir the German people?
Guttenberg looks like a prodigal son returning to support his family in a time of crises. During his exile to the United States, he added valuable experience to his charisma and formed outstanding relationships with many American business leaders. He founded his own advisory company, Spitzberg Partners, and invests in companies around the world. Now he is ready for the long-desired and planned comeback.
To understand why we believe Guttenberg might be the man to lead Germany through the President Trump era, read “Trump, Germany and KT zu Guttenberg.”
How will this development affect life on the Continent? Drastically.
Over the years, Britain has been the biggest hindrance to the unification project proceeding forward. Where France and Germany had ambitious designs for European unity, Britain viewed it as a take-it-or-leave-it economic venture. This fundamental difference, coupled with Britain’s sheer size and political influence, has made London the resident counterweight to Franco-German ambition.
In this role, Britain has found itself the ally of European nations worried by Franco-German ambition. For Europe’s smaller, less influential states, Britain has been both a megaphone for their anxiety and the key ally preventing them from being steamrolled by France and Germany.
The withdrawal of Britain from the European Union will dramatically upset this balance of power.
With this millstone cut loose, expect European integration to move rapidly forward.
Clearly Germany stands to gain the most from Britain’s exit. It is best positioned to fill the resulting colossal power vacuum. It is already the economic hub and political nucleus of the Union; a British withdrawal will consolidate and augment Berlin’s role at the vanguard of this political bloc.
As Britain edges closer to leaving the EU, political pragmatism by German leaders will likely cause them to refrain from expressing too much joy too quickly; pro-integration leaders will likely express regret over Britain’s withdrawal, claiming Britain was an important and much-needed member of the Union.
But don’t let the rhetoric trick you.
The reality is that Germany, together with every other European nation eager to get on with unification, will be thrilled to drop the weighty millstone. Rather than spell the doom of European unification, a British withdrawal will likely spawn a pro-unification renaissance—at least among some EU states.
Watch for Germany, as it works to redraw the balance of power among its neighbors, to establish itself as the absolute, unquestionable leader of Europe. Without London as a hindrance, Europe will quickly become clay in the hands of a Berlin-based potter.
Other European governments, however, won’t be thrilled by Germany’s increased dominance over Europe. These nations—the ones that have relied on Britain as an ally against German leadership and ambition—stand to lose much when Britain withdraws.
Poland is a good example. Warsaw’s relationship with Berlin is cantankerous and fragile, and to lose Britain as an ally and mouthpiece would greatly weaken Poland’s position relative to Germany.
Beyond Poland, a British withdrawal from the EU could destabilize and likely handicap the political influence and strategic maneuverability of the Czech Republic and Slovakia in their relations with Berlin and Brussels. Additionally, a British withdrawal could send political tremors through others of Europe’s Anglo-Saxon states, including Holland, Denmark, Ireland, Finland and Sweden—though it may not debilitate their position strategically.
When Britain leaves, every European nation will be faced with the same decision: Submit to Germany as it assumes leadership over Europe, or follow Britain out of the camp.
Today, the EU is comprised of 27 member states; if a British withdrawal precipitates the secession of a few other states, the EU could quickly be pared down to a core group of pro-unification nations that are willing to fall under German leadership.
Prior to his death in 1986, Herbert W. Armstrong spent more than 50 years speaking on the future of world events based on biblical prophecy. During that period, he prophesied that a German-led, Roman Catholic European empire would eventually emerge out of Europe; he even explained how Bible prophecy indicates that this dominating European superpower will be comprised of five nations, or “kings,” from Eastern Europe, and five from Western Europe. Furthermore, he prophesied that this terrible European beast would rise to become a dominating global superpower. Literally hundreds of books, booklets, articles, sermons and television programs document this man’s prognosis about the future of Europe.
Combined with this warning about a coming European superpower was a message to Britain: that it would never be a part of this final European power.
Even as Britain sailed into the European Community on Jan. 1, 1973, Herbert Armstrong warned that that date would prove to be a “tragically historic date,” a date “fraught with ominous potentialities.” Today, after decades of declaring the warning about the rise of a European superpower and the withdrawal of Britain from this European project, these prophecies are poised to unfold in spectacular fashion.
Over the next few months and years, we must watch Britain closely. The day is quickly approaching when it will no longer be a member of the European Union. When this occurs, a political and strategic volcano will shake the Continent. The political chaos may be so bad that unification will seem utterly impossible.
However, this crisis will be short-lived. With a massive power vacuum needing to be filled and the Continent’s balance of power entirely upended, Germany will assume absolute leadership over the Continent.
Then, without Britain to counter German ambition, the entire strategic and political landscape of Europe will be redrawn by Berlin’s pen!
At that time, those European nations that distrust German ambitions and have relied on London as a counterweight to Germany will suffer a severe blow and be driven to make a tough decision. They will be told they can either embrace German designs for European unification or follow in the footsteps of Britain and leave.
The withdrawal of Britain will be such a momentous, destabilizing event for Europe that most analysts will probably decry the end of the European unification project. Indeed, there may be a period of confusion and chaos. But ultimately, rather than hinder the integration of Europe, the final cutting loose of Britain as a millstone could be a major event needed to thrust Europe forward as a smaller, more streamlined, more focused and tightly knit superpower.
