The fall of the Berlin Wall is a symbol of the Cold War in post-World War II Europe and it illustrated the gap between two political ideologies; Capitalism and Communism

30 years ago, some people in Germany were isolated from the rest of the world. They were trapped inside the Berlin Wall that was a guarded concrete barrier that physically and ideologically divided Berlin from 1961 to 1989.

Construction of the Wall was commenced by the German Democratic Republic (GDR, East Germany) on 13 August 1961. The Wall cut off West Berlin from surrounding East Germany, including East Berlin.

The Eastern Bloc portrayed the Wall as protecting its population from fascist elements conspriring to prevent the «will of the people» in building a socialist state in East Germany. GDR authorities officially referred to the Berlin Wall as the Anti-Fascist Protection Rampart.

The West Berlin city government sometimes referred to it as the «Wall of Shame», a term coined by mayor Willy Brandt in reference to the Wall`s restriction on freedom of movement. The wall came to symbolize physically the «Iron Curtain» that separated Western Europe and the Eastern Bloc during the Cold War.

U.S Secretary of State Mike Pompeo praised Reagan on Friday, saying he «courageously denounced the greatest threat to that freedom, the Soviet Empire, the evil Empire.» Reagan held a speech in 1987, but John F Kennedy said «Ich bin ein Berliner» in a speech in West Berlin, on June 26, 1963.

That speech is widely regarded as the best-known speech of the Cold War and the most famous anti-communist speech.

Kennedy aimed to underline the support of the United States for West Germany 22 months after Soviet-occupied East Germany erected the Berliin Wall to prevent mass emigration to the West. The message was aimed as much at the Soviets as it was at Berliners and was a clear statement of U.S policy in the wake of the construction of the Berlin Wall.

Another phrase in the speech was also spoken in German, «Lasst sie nach Berlin kommen» (Let them come to Berlin»), addressed at those who claimed «we can work with the Communists», a remark at which Nikita Khrushchev scoffed only days later.

Chancellor Angela Merkel thanked the United States for its support in reunification in a speech on Friday. Kennedy`s speech «Ich bin ein Berliner», and Ronald Reagan`s memorable Berlin sentence from 1987, «Mr. Gorbachev tear down this wall,» as well as Barrack Obama`s speech at the Brandenburg Gate in 2016, are in all German`s memories.

Germany`s capital, Berlin was deep within the area controlled after World War II by the Soviet Union. Initially governed in four sectors controlled by the four Allied powers (United States, United Kingdom, France and the Soviet Union).

Tensions of the Cold War escalated until the Soviet forces implemented the Berlin Blockade, which the Western allies relieved with the dramatic airlift. Afterward, the sectors border between East and West was closed everywhere but in Berlin.

Hundreds of thousands of East Germans defected to the West via West Berlin, a labour drain that threatened East Germany with economic collapse.

In 1961, the East German government under Walter Ulbricht erected a barbed-wire barrier around West Berlin, officially called the antifaschistischer Schutzwall (anti-fascist protective barrier).

The East German authorities argued that it was meant to prevent spies and agents of West Germany from crossing into East. However, it was universally known as the Berliin Wall and its real purpose was to keep East German citizens from escaping to the West.

The Wall closed the biggest loophole in the Iron Curtain, and Berlin went from being one of the easiest places to cross from East Europe to West Europe to being one of the most difficult.

The West, including the U.S., was accused of failing to respond forcefully to the erection of the Wall. Officially, Berlin was under joint occupation by the four allied powers, each with primary responsibility for a certain zone.

Kennedy`s speech marked the first instance where the U.S acknowledged that East Berlin was part of the Soviet bloc along with the rest of East Germany. On July 25, 1961, Kennedy insisted in a presidential address that the U.S would defend West Berlin, asserting its Four-Power rights, while making it clear that challenging the Soviet presence in Germany was not possible.

30 years ago, in 1989, a series of revolutions in nearby Eastern Bloc countries, Poland and Hungary in particular, caused a chain reaction in East Germany that ultimately resulted in the demise of the Wall.

After several weeks of unrest, the East German government announced on 9 November 1989 that all GDR citizens could visit West Germany and West Berlin. Crowds of East Germans crossed and climbed onto the Wall, joined by West Germans on the other side in a celebratory atmosphere.

The «fall of the Berlin Wall» paved the way for German reunification, which formally took place on 3 October 1990.

Some people in Berlin say that they are more divided today than 30 years ago. It actually started right after World War II. East Germany differed from West Germany (Federal Republic of Germany), which developed into a Western capitalist country with a social market economy and a democratic parliamentary government.

Continual economic growth starting in the 1950`s fueled a 20-year «economic miracle». As West Germany`s eceonomy grew, and its standard of living steadily improved, many East Germans wanted to move to West Germany.

Today, we can see that it all boil down to one ting: The richest people in Germany live in the West.

Big companies and high income is missing in the East were only 36 og Germany`s 500 biggest companies have headquarters. In 1991, East Germany`s GDP per capita was equivalent to just 43 percent of that in West Germany, but now it`s 75 percent (2018). According to a poll, most East Germans still feel like «second class citizens.»

About 2 million people have left the East for the West after the fall of the wall, and two thirds of them were women. The Eastern population is older, poorer and more male. Only two soccer teams out of 18 are from the East. Interestigly, the far-right is doing it better in the East.

It all goes back to Stalin and the Communists. The German Democratic Republic (GDP, East Germany) was declared on 7 October 1949. By a secret treaty, the Soviet Ministry of Foreign Affairs accorded the East German state administrative authority, but not autonomy. The Soviet permeated East German administrative, military and secret police structure and had full control.

The Organization for Economic Cooperation and Development (OECD) said schools were «a justifiable source of pride for the East Germans.» OECD said that while education system in the former West focused on dividing children into different ability groups early on, the Eastern system was more equitable.

But after the fall of the wall, the East was eager to do everything in the Western way, even education. The education system in the East become more unequal. Kids drops out of school and are worce off in the East than in the West. In West Germany, people look back at East Germany in a very negative sense.

The West are more conservative and religious. Politically, Germany is still very divided. Voters in the former Communist states are voting the far-right AfD.

You can see what the communists have done to the mindset and the community. We know the story of one of the founders of Google, Sergei Brin. His parents escaped from Moscow to the United States. They separated the kids on the school. Brin couldn`t participate with the other kids in gym and matematics.

Indoctrination of Marxism-Leninism became a compulsory part of the school curricula, sending professors and students fleeing to the West. The East Germans created an elaborate political police apparatus that kept the population under close surveillance, inluding Soviet SMERSH secret police.

Who wants to live in a hell like this? The emigrants tended to be young and well-educated, leading to the brain drain feared by officials in East Germany. They stated «the flight of the intelligentsia has reached a particularly critical phase.»

The loss was disproportionately heavy among professionals, engineers, technicians, physicians, teachers, lawyers and skilled workers. The brain drain of professionals had become so damaging to the political credibility and economic viability of the East Germany that the re-securing of the German communist frontier was imperative.

Following World War II, Soviet leader Joseph Stalin headed a group of nations on his Western border, the Eastern Bloc, that then included Poland, Hungary and Czechoslovakia, which he wished to maintain alongside a weakened Soviet-controlled Germany.

As early as 1945, Stalin revealed to German communist leaders that he expected to slowly undermine the British position within the British occupation zone, that the United States would withdraw within a year or two, and that nothing would then stand in the way of a unified communist Germany within the bloc.

The major task of the ruling communist party in the Soviet zone was to channel Soviet orders down to both the administrative apparatus and the other bloc parties, which in turn would be presented as internal measures.

Property and industry was nationalized in the East German zone. If statements or decisions deviated from the described line, reprimands and punishment would ensure, such as imprisonment, torture and even death.

In 1949, following disagreements regarding reconstruction and a new German currency, Stalin instituted the Berlin Blockade, preventing food, materials and supplies from arriving in West Berlin. The United States, the United Kingdom, France, Canada, Australia, New Zealand and several other countries began a massive «airlift», supplying West Berlin with food and other supplies.

The Soviets mounted a public relations campaign against the Western policy change. Communists attempted to disrupt the elections of 1948, preceding large losses therein, while 300,000 Berliners demonstrated for the international airlift to continue. In May 1949, Stalin lifted the blockade, permintting the resumption of Western shipments to Berlin.

After the Soviet occupation of Eastern Europe at the end of World War II, the majority of those living in the newly acquried areas of the Eastern Bloc aspired to independence and wanted the Soviets to leave.

Taking advantage of the zonal border between accupied zones in Germany the number of GDR citizens moving to West Germany totaled 187,000 in 1950. 165,000 in 1951. 182,000 in 1952, and 331,000 in 1953.

One reason for the sharp 1953 increase was fear of potential further Sovietization, given the increasingly paranoid actions of Joseph Stalin in late 1952 and early 1953.

The fall of the Berlin Wall is a symbol of the Cold War in post-World War II Europe. The Wall separated East and West Berlin for 28 years, and it illustrated the gap between two political ideologies; Capitalism and Communism.

On Saturday 9 November, Berlin will celebrate the 30th anniversary of the peaceful revolution and the fall of the wall.

Normandy`s D-Day landing beaches have come to symbolise universal hopes for freedom and peace, and beyond that, for reconciliation

We will never be finish with World War II and the ideology behind it. 6th June 2019 marks the start of the 75th anniversary of the D-Day Landings and the Battle of Normandy and with it, a momentous occasion to celebrate peace, liberty and reconciliation.

Nigel Farage and his supporters is one of the first to celebrate next week because they see it as a victory for democracy. They don`t like EU because it crushes democracy and take decision-making powers away from ordinary people and gives it back to unelected bureaucrats in Brussels.

On 6 June 1944 and during the long summer that followed, men from all over the world came to fight in Normandy to defeat Nazism and re-establish freedom. Normandy will bear the scars of this moment in history for ever and every year we remember and pay tribute to the veterans from America, Britain and Canada to name a few. Keep in mind that Russia also defeated the Nazis.

The Normandy landings were the landing operations on Tuesday, 6 June 1944 of the Allied invasion of Normandy in Operation Overload during World War II. Codename Operation neptune and often referred to as D-Day, it was the largest seaborne invasion in history.

The operation began the liberation of German-occupied France (and later Europe) from Nazi control, and laid the foundation of the Allied victory on the Western Front.

After the German Army invaded the Soviet Union in June 1941, the Soviet leader Joseph Stalin began pressing his new allies for the creation of a second front in western Europe. In late May 1942, the Soviet Union and the United States made a joint announcement that a «…full understanding was reached with regard to the urgent tasks of creating a second front in Europe in 1942.»

However, British Prime Minister Winston Churchill persuaded US President Franklin D. Roosvelt to postpone the promised invasion as, even with US help, the Allies did not have adequate forces for such an activity.

Instead of an immediate return to France, the western Allies staged offensives in the Mediterranean Theatre of Operations, where British troops were already stationed. By mid-1943 the campaign in North Africa had been won.

The allies then launched the invasion of Sicily in June 1943, and subsequently invaded the Italian mainland in September the same year. By then, Soviet forces were on the offensive and had won a major victory at the Battle of Stalingrad.

The descision to undertake a cross-channel invasion within the next year was taken at the Trident Conference in Washington in May 1943. Initial planning was constrained by the number of available landing craft, most of which were already committed in the Mediterranean and Pacific.

At the Tehran Conference in November 1943, Roosvelt and Churchill promised Stalin that they would open the long-delayed second front in May 1944.

Hitler and the Nazis wanted Europe, but they lost. The Allies won and took back their own countries. They celebrated freedom and liberty. Two important things Trump often talks about. He also say that nobody can take control over the United States because they want to rule their own country.

Look at Europe now. Especially after the election were the Brexit-party won big. The Global establishment are often talking about the right-wing partys like «anti-imigrants» or «far-right partys», but that description is false.

They also often put Trump in the same folder as Salvini, Farage, Le Pen and Orban. How can so many experts be wrong? The global elite are doing a big mistake; they are not listening to the voters. The elites are being rejected because they failed, and the fight has just begun. It will intensify next year.

The global elite must start to eccept the fact that the populist conservatives and economic nationalists are on the rise. Just take a look at the «Deep State» in the U.S that rose up before and after Trump`s election. They tried to take him out from the office but failed.

Its fact; the global elites have suffered from their wishful thinking since Trumps inauguration. People in the U.K voted to leave the EU and in the U.S, they voted for Trump. What do you think? Are people in the U.K and the U.S stupid? It remain to see.

On 6 June 2019 at 6pm, the official international ceremony celebrating this major anniversary will take place on Juno Beach and will be attended by many Allied Heads of State.

U.S President Donald Trump, British Prime Minister Theresa May and many other world leaders and dignitaries will all be in Normandy to mark the 75th anniversary.

The French president, Emmanuel Macron is facing criticism for refusing to attend an international ceremony at Normandy`s Juno Beach next week. Instead, he is to take charge of a ceremony in homage to French commandos and Resistance fighters who took part in the Normandy landings in 1944.

In the morning of June 6, Theresa May and Mr Macron will lay the foundation stone of the future British Normandy Memorial, commemorating the 22,442 troops under British command who died in the summper of 1944 during fierce fighting as the Allies invaded France.

Later he will join Donald Trump at the American ceremony at Colleville-sur-Mer. At Omaha Beach, Mr Macron will award the Legion of Honour, France`s highest distinction, to five American veterans aged between 94 and 100.

Louis Mexandeau who is 87 years old, is a former minister for veterans, and he said: «We had hoped that France would honour in the appropriate manner the sacrifice of tens of thousands of Allied soldiers.»

We will all honor and pay tribute to our fallen heroes. The men who landed on D-Day, leading to victory in Europe in World War II.

A rich and unprecedented programme of events will be put together to bring the memory of this tragic period of world history to life, all while emphasizing the spirit of hope. The anniversary will be commemorated with military parades, firework displays, airdrops, giant picnics, conserts and military camp re-enactments.

Normandy`s D-Day landing beaches have come to symbolise universal hopes for freedom and peace, and beyond that, for reconciliation.

20 years since Princess Diana`s death in Paris and Mainstream Media is a huge part of the story

On Thursday 31, it is 20 years since the tragic death of Princess Diana in Paris. The question is: was it an accident or a murder? The more you scrutinize this case, the more you realize that something is terribly wrong in this world.

Princess Diana was beautiful and extraordinarily popular royal figure. She was a fashion icon. She was the people`s princess, but also big business for the mainstream media. The press was a huge part of her life, but unfortunately, also a huge part of the story of her death.

 

diana

(Princess Diana dancing with John Travolta)

 

Princess Diana died on 31 August 1997. She was fatally injured in a car crash in the Pont de I`Alma road tunnel in Paris. Nobody knows exactly what happened in the tunnel and there is a lot of conspiracy theories out there.

Diana died along with her driver Henri Paul and her companion Dodi Fayed. Bodyguard Trevor Rees-Jones was the only survivor, but he was also the only one with seatbelt on.

An inquest jury at the Royal Courts of Justice in 2008 ruled the couple were unlawfully killed. The ruling blamed the deadly crash on the «gross negigence» of driver Mr Paul and the paparazzi who had been hounding their car. It found alcohol had impaired Mr Paul`s judgement and that Diana and Dodi may have survived if they had worn seatbelts.

Many people doesn`t buy this story.

Every person who talked to Henri Paul that night has said that he did not appear intoxicated before the crash. Cameras on Ritz hotel taken only minutes before take off showed that Henri Paul was not drunken as a pig but normal.

Blood samples apparently taken from Henri Paul after the crash, showed that he was hopelessly drunk, but interestingly, the blood contained a medicine called Albendazole, which Henri`s doctor said he was never prescribed.

Even more bizarrely, the same batch of blood samples contained no trace of another medicine named Acamprostate which Henri had been prescribed. Did someone switch the blood sample?

Mr Paul`s friend Claude Garrec has attempted to defend the chauffeur. He claims Mr Paul passed an aviation medical test 72 hours before the crash and has dismissed suggestions the chauffeur was an alcoholic or suffering from depression.

«If Henri was an alcoholic and depressive how was this signed by a doctor just three days before he died? And one particularly strong memory for me was the message on a wreath at his funeral, «We are not fooled.»

Mr Paul was a pilot for 20 years and had to pass strict medical tests annually, including blood and liver tests, and I flew with Henri in his plane dozens of times, Claude Garrec said. His wife and his daughter were also with them at night and in foggy weather. They wouldn`t do that if Henri was mentally unstable.

Something is wrong.

First of all; why in the world did it take 1 hour and 45 minutes to get to the hospital?

Normally it takes only 11 minutes in rush hour. At night, when the accident happened, it would have taken only a few minutes, but they didnt drive directly to the hospital. The ambulance driver was ordered by the onboard doctor to stop and park outside Paris Natural History Museum, because Diana was in critical condition.

The ambulance driver parked there for more than 10 minutes. The hospital entrance was in plain view of the parked ambulance, but no one rushed over to help. They waited too long and Diana died.

Against all French laws, immediately a team of embalmers illegally embalmed Diana`s body, whilst it was still worm. This made any post-mortem examination extremely difficult to perform. Therefore doctors were unable to find out if there had been any tampering with her body during the ambulance journey.

All 24 road traffic cameras on the way from Rits Hotel to the tunnel was not working at the time Diana were driving there. Coincidence?

The same happened the day Michael Jackson past away. Coincidence?

His brother Jermine Jackson said all the cameras was out of function the day Michael Jackson died. He said someone is behind it, and that he want to know the truth.

Michael Jackson often said to his friends not to let him be at the hospital if he was sick. They will kill me, he said. He often said that someone was after him. The same can be said about Diana. Lawyer Michael Mansfield is suspicious after police did not react more strongly to a note Princess Diana had written in which she claimed someone was plotting to kill her. This is also what Michael Jackson said, according to his sister Latoya Jackson.

Michael Jackson said very often that his job is to help people. He was helping sick and poor people and he was taking care of many children. He was also a very good father figure. He was simply a person that everybody loved and still love. But so is it with Diana.

Diana was the patroness of charities and organisations working with the homeless, youth, drug addicts and the elderly. She was often seen visiting children afflicted with cancer or battling debilitating diseases requiring surgery. Diana was also the patron of HALO Trust, the world`s oldest and largest landmine clearance organization.

She did a lot of charity works, visiting terminally ill people over the world, leading campaigns for animal protection, AIDS awareness and against the use of inhumane weapons.

Five days after Diana`s death, Mother Teresa died. Another person with a lot of charity work. «I was to leave the convent and help the poor while living among them. It was an order,» she said.

In her words, I would care for «the hungry, the naked, the homeless, the crippled, the blind, the lepers, all those people who feel unwanted, unloved, uncared for throughout society, people that have become a burden to the society and are shunned by everyone.

Mother Teresa, known in the Catholic Church as Saint Teresa of Calcutta, had a heart attack in Rome in 1983 while she was visiting Pope John Paul II, better knows as Saint John Paul the Great by some Catholics. Mother Teresa died 5 September 1997.

Princess Diana had one big problem; Mainstream Media.

Media were stalking her 24/7/365, but so was it for Michael Jackson. They both died young but many people won`t buy the story of an accident. They both said very often that “they are going to kill me.”

Diana didn`t do it easy for her self. She found a new partner and that partner was her former bodyguard; Dody Fayed. The son of Mohammed Al-Fayed which is the owner of the Paris Ritz hotel.

Dodi Fayed was a muslim. So is it with Jermine Jackson. We know that there is a huge problem with religion in this world. We know France and Paris` attitude to muslims. And we know what have happened in Paris lately.

A year before Michaels death, there were rumours about Michaels religion. The Sun and New York Post claimed that Michael Jackson had converted to Islam, but according to British popstar Yousef Islam (Cat Stevens), he didn`t have any kind of conversation ceremony with Michael.

In November 2008, Michael Jackson’s New York lawyer, Londell McMillan rejected a British press report that Michael Jackson has become a Muslim. “That’s rubbish. It’s completely untrue,” McMillan told reporters. In other words: Fake news!

Jermine Jackson converted to Islam. Not Michael Jackson.

Diana is very different from all other women, but seems to be very similar to Princess Elisabeth of Hesse and by Rhine (1864 – 1918). Elisabeth was also very beautiful and extremely popular among the people.

She was also famous in Russian society for a charitable works among poor, but in 1918, Lenin ordered the Cheka to arrest Elisabeth. A few Bolshevik (Communist party) workers took all her money and everything she had and killed her.

Her remains were removed further east and to China before being ultimately taken to Jerusalem, where she were laid to rest in the Church of Maria Magdalena.

Elisabeth was canonized by the Russian Orthodox Church Outside of Russia in 1981, and in 1992 by the Moscow Patriarchate as New Martyr Yelizaveta Fyodorovna (Princess Elisabeth). She is one of the 10 20th-century martyrs from across the world who are depicted in statues above the Great West Door of Westminister Abbey, London, England.

Diana`s accident happened in Paris. A city since Beaumarchais and Voltaire that is often referred to as La Ville Lumière (The city of light). Both because of its leading role during the age of Enlightenment.

That has lately become a dubious honor.

Cambodias leader Pol Pot and his friends grew up under the French Colonial Empire and was not inspired by communist Stalin or Mao. They all went to school in Paris in the 1950s, and Cambodia`s Revolution, and all their ideology came from Paris. The city of light. A city were Red Khmers was born.

According to several sources, interviewed by EIR, the Paris Police Prefect (police chief), Philippe Massoni was in the tunnel, and French interior minister, Jean-Pierre Chevenement, was at the Pitie Salpetriere Hospital prior to the arrival of the ambulance carrying Princess Diana.

French media reported that, along with Massoni, other top-ranking French officials were also at the tunnel, including Patrick Rioux, chief of the Judiciary Police, and Martine Monteil, head of the Criminal Brigade.

All those officials of high-ranking French government officials placed them in charge of the so-called rescue effort.

The evidence shows that Princess Diana`s death was almost certainly the direct result of criminal negligence by these French authorities. She could have received life-saving attention earlier and probably survived.

French authorities have systematically suppressed evidence, intimidated and gagged key witnesses, badly bungled the most vital forensic test, and prevented any outside agencies, including the families of the deceased, from even raising questions about the conduct of the French officials handling the investigation.

The cumulative effort of all the falsehoods, each tracked back to French government sources, has been ruthless cover-up on the part of the French.

This case would have resulted in manslaughter prosecution of the responsible officials had the crash occurred in the United States.

The Mainstream Media were stalking Diana, better known as «Gang Stalking», which is illegal. Mainstream Media was also stalking Michael Jackson. It is a big crime. Mainstream Media`s «hate product» number one now is President Donald Trump.

A President that is fighting against the establishment which is on the left and right side and also in the mainstream media. Trump is also the President that found the word: Fake news.

In 20 years we have seen so many cover-ups and fake news about the accident i Paris. People want to know the truth, but still today, media is not telling the truth.

Lawyer Michael Mansfield said there is a good reason to suspect the Paris incident was not accidental and calls for a fresh investigation into the fatal crash.
