Since last year, after having appointed ex-Goldman Sachs-men as Prime Ministers of Greece and Italy, they are now openly demanding control of Greece's finances via a 'Budget Commissioner' - effectively, total control of Greek nation.
(Ironically, it is a German financier going by the name of Mayer Amschel Rothschild, who was once quoted as having declared: "Give me control of a nation's money and I care not who makes her laws.")
Anyways, this is from Reuters,
Philipp Roesler (chairman of the Free Democrats who share power with Chancellor Angela Merkel) became the first German cabinet member to openly endorse a proposal for Greece to surrender budget control after Reuters quoted a European source on Friday as saying Berlin wants Athens to give up budget control.
The Financial Times reported on Saturday that it had obtained a copy of the proposal showing Germany wants a new euro zone "budget commissioner" to have the power to veto budget decisions taken by the Greek government if they are not in line with targets set by international lenders.
"Given the disappointing compliance so far, Greece has to accept shifting budgetary sovereignty to the European level for a certain period of time," the document said.
Under the plan, Athens would only be allowed to carry out normal state spending after servicing its debt, the paper said.
And Greece is just the beginning...
A government source in Berlin said Germany's proposal was aimed not just at Greece but also at other struggling euro zone members that receive aid and are unable to make good on their obligations.
Auf Wiedersehen. (That, 'Goodbye' to all you soon-to-be-reichsfolk.)
