Der EU

A reader in Berlin has been kind enough to send information on the status of the EU Constitution / Lisbon Treaty ratification in Germany, where his government, like the government's of virtually all of the other EU countries, is intent on transferring its sovereignty to an EU superstate without allowing the German people a say.


Stephan Ossenkopp writes:

. . . [W]hat most people are unaware of is the fact that the EU constitution of 2005 has never been officially ratified in Germany, either. What an expert in this field revealed to an audience a few months ago was, that, although both houses of parliament (Bundestag and Bundesrat) have passed it by a great majority (of corrupt suckers), the constitutional court (Bundesverfassungsgericht) refused to give the German president permission to sign it, because of a clear violation of the principle of the Grundgesetz (our constitution) that only the German people can vote up a new constitution. So in order to prevent a backfire, he did not sign it. Any law can only pass after a signature of the president.

The EU "Lisbon" treaty is scheduled to be ratified on I think the 23rd of April in the Bundestag, and on the 25th of May in the Bundesrat. The president would have to sign it afterwards. What I and some others are doing is, getting the German public to realize that they can actually prevent it from being ratified by forcing attention on this, and by demanding a referendum, which is their right guaranteed by the Grundgesetz. If you want to be "complicit" in our conspiracy, then I can send you some articles to spread, because the problem is that the average citizen is not supposed to know according to the authors and promoters of the treaty, like Jean Claude Juncker et al. We are getting out flyers and leaflets on the streets (I live in Berlin) as well as produce publications, videoclips and online radio shows.

As an aside, I would add that the German papers, such as Der Spiegel are far more dissatisfied, vocal and realistic about the problematic nature of the EU and this non-democratic transfer of sovereignty than any of the papers I have read in Britain. Perhaps there is a shot to derail this grand experiment in non-democratic socialism at the Rhine. I am going to take Stephan up on his offer, and would urge all interested parties to do likewise.

And by the way, if you are concerned with freedom and preservation of Western culture, you need to be an interested party. The fundamental dangers posed politically, economically and culturally by the well meaning socialists of the EU are extensive, potentially existential, and the ramifications do not end on European shores.
