How US Blackmails Other Countries – Explained By German Diplomat

A video more than a decade old featuring German diplomat Werner Weidenfeld in a TV appearance has resurfaced on Twitter, and it’s worth watching. In the segment Weidenfeld explains that the United States intelligence agencies embrace Germans when they agree, guilt trip Germans about World War II when they mildly disagree, and blackmail Germans with compromising information they’ve obtained when the disagreements are over major issues.

Jimmy and Americans’ Comedian Kurt Metzger discuss the scurrilous practices engaged in by US intelligence agencies to keep even staunch allies from exhibiting too much independence.

  1. Translation seems to be auto-generated. In the "secondary issues" described (where the translation talks about "rain" for some reason?), the diplomat paraphrases the US government saying what roughly amounts to "Hey Germany, we're protecting you and stuff. Where's the gratitude?"

    Seriously wonder why such bad translations make the rounds (same with a speech from Put!n regarding "golden ages" that has tons of weird sentences in the "translation")…

  2. These people are Not Capitalist, they are Straight Oligarchs, Modern Day Pirates who have Taken Over a Nation to Steal and the Destroy the World to Benefit the Elite Oligarchs Only… and the rest of us remain Serf-Slaves, like the a Hyper Version of the UK Royal Crown.

  3. Europe has been occupied by USA since 1945 they kept troops and military bases like in Syria, they even decided your political parties and they blackmail you if you're going against it's interest. Is that really free, did they really free you?

  4. The Coup D'etat in 1963 Against "We The People" Of America, Carried Out By A Private, Corporate, Extra Constitutional & Extra Territorial Criminal Cabal At War With "We The People" & At War Incestuously Among & With Itself For Global Dominance. Documented Evidence Of Grandad Bush Financing NAZI's Before & During WWII & The Then Post WWII NAZI Ideological Infiltration Of A Small But Now Controlling Apparatus "Deep State" Section Of The USA Government.

    It Is Not "The Constitutional United States Of America" "The Government Of The People By The People For The People" Doing These Things Around The World. If You Don't Use It People, You'll Lose It !!!

  5. Jimmy, you have fans in Germany. Reach out if you need help with translations in situations like this and you will be suprised. that auto translate was garbage and from what i was able to hear before you got what he meant.

  6. what he meant with what happens with disagreement when it comes to secondary issues that the Germans disagree with the US publicly is that the Americans will point that out and say, look we liberated Germany and now they can even disagree with us thanks to the freedoms the got from us. so they can use that for their own means and as propaganda. see, our ally disagrees with us and we are cool with because thats what we are all about. what i would like to know is what type of shit they had against the germans to use as blackmail.

  7. We in Europe need to divorce ourselves from USA before it's to late, and create better cooperation and trade through Eurasia.
    NATO has to be disolved and be replaced with an european militaryalliance without USA

  8. i love how jimmy called the spd a right wing party because they claim to be left and are viewed so by most of the public. so a jerkof comedian on youtube is right about german politics without knowing anything about it.

  9. Blackmails Other Countries=MUMTAZ;75;INDIA;SPIRITUAL;SUPERSTAR TO UGANDA;LAW;MARRIAGE;MODEL TO UNIVERSE;LAW;TAJ;2;LOVE=Osho Love is your very being…but that love has become almost impossible. The society does not allow it. The society conditions you in such a way that love becomes impossible and hate becomes the only possible thing. Then hate is easy, and love is not only difficult but impossible. Man has been distorted, reduced to slavery=Osho Omega point, where the whole of humanity and the whole consciousness of humanity would come to a peak=Osho Unless we create the transcendental man on the earth, there is not much hope. But I feel my people are capable of doing the apparently impossible.=Osho legal mind always goes on throwing responsibility on somebody else, Love takes the responsibility on itself=EU lawmakers name Russia a 'state sponsor' of terrorism | DW News=EU;LAWMAKERS; RUSSIA; STATES;SPONSOR FROM TERRORISM TO TAUFIQ-TAJ;2;LOVE-TASK;SUN;E=MC2;H2O;3C; 3D;3M;CIVILIZATION=Osho The West URGENTLY needs the fourth door.The Universal mind=Osho It needs immense clarity to see the world as it really is, and to see how society creates certain dynamics, certain pseudo phenomena to protect itself. There are more counterrevolutionaries in the world pretending to be revolutionaries than there are authentic revolutionaries. But it needs a tremendous clarity, coming only out of meditation, so that you can figure it out=Osho The idea should not be more important than the person. Even the whole humanity is not more important than a single human being. Humanity is an idea; a single human being is a reality. Forget about humanity, remember the human being — the real, the concrete, the throbbing, the alive. It is very easy to sacrifice human beings for humanity.

    Osho It is not the realization of the vision, the coming of the new man, a new humanity..that will come in its own time.The more important thing is to be able to visualize it

    Osho Humanity now crossroads need enriched human being, three-dimensional. I call them three C's Consciousness compassion creativity simultaneously, task to be fulfilled (E=MC2 H2O)

    Osho The world needs purely religious consciousness, with no adjectives attached, unifying vision, a synthesis, Upanishadic approach–all is One

    Osho Unless ego is dropped your politics talent success will be criminal, competition will be cut-throat, murderous, you will succeed on the failures of many by destroying many

    (Presidents Donald Trump and Joe Biden both invoked the Defense Production Act (DPA) in response to the COVID-1 pandemic. The Cold War–era law gives the president significant emergency authority to control domestic industries. Trump used the law to crack down on hoarding, limit exports of medical goods, and increase production of critical supplies. Biden has used it to speed up vaccination and testing effort)=Man is entering into a new phase; a new consciousness is to dawn

    Osho Money beautiful not in the hands of individuals, society takes care of everybody. given all necessary for life, society enriched nobody guilty. Only when the center changes, the periphery changes. The periphery cannot change center. Let this be one of the most fundamental rules, they have governments, law in their hands

    Osho The only revolution that can free humanity from poverty is a scientific revolution. In fact, if machines are introduced more and more

    Osho If five thousand rich people who created wealth individually are together, they can create wealth a millionfold. Their standard will not go lower, their standard can even go higher

    Osho Money beautiful not in the hands of individuals, society takes care of everybody. given all necessary for life, all share whatsoever, society enriched nobody guilty

    Osho The darkness can be very old, ancient, millions of years old, but just a small candle is enough to dispel it

    Osho be materialists(MERITOCRACIES;MILITARIES;LIFENEEDS;GOODS) and spiritualists(HOMES;FAMIIES;LIFENEEDS;CASH) simultaneously, in a balanced way. Use science, but don't be used by it. Technology can help man suffering very much Machines can replace I would like a humanity free from work and you will become more spiritual. Science must-surrender to nature not conquest of nature-=Osho be materialists(MERITOCRACIES;MILITARIES;LIFENEEDS; GOODS) and spiritualists(HOMES; WOMEN; 2;CHILD; ELDERS;FAMIILES;LIFENEEDS;CASH) simultaneously, in a balanced way. Osho Meditation is a Scientific Methodology (E=MC2 H2O)=Osho URGENTLY needs the fourth door.The Universal Mind=


    Osho only thing that I am interested in is that my people should attain to the state from where they cannot fall I cannot give you anything more precious

    Osho The darkness can be very old, ancient, millions of years old, but just a small candle is enough to dispel it

    Osho be objective; create something which can help a wandering humanity to come to a resting place

    Osho citizens need dignity individuality certain sense of direction into eternity.That is missing.

    Osho the energy that was creating problem goes back to the cosmos — twitter – saifuddin taher rassiwalla @saifudd05242661

  10. If you think the CIA only does internationally legal actions, you haven't read their charter. If you think the CIA only does illegal coups and assassinations in countries like Iran, you haven't attended a single history class or watched an American television since 1963. If you think that the CIA only intimidates and blackmails foreign democracies like UK, Sweden and Germany, which could have had fully developed socialism after 80 years of peace since WWII had they been unobstructed, you haven't listened to their own bragging done on mainstream media like CNN. If you think money isn't a good enough reason to betray the ideals of peace, humanism, international cooperation, science, fairplay and justice at home and abroad by ostensibly nationalistic but actually commercial interests who teach lying first before job instruction, you are a woman, democrat, transvestite, religious, or just rich. The CIA is not the tool or an inconvenience or a necessity, they are the single and only enemy existing between us and utopia. We could solve homelessness, infrastructure, healthcare and we could be working on real problems that involve human advancement rather than just shoring up basic human necissities, like Mars colonization, fusion energy, plastic recycling, neutrino astronomy. We could have endless YouTube videos without censorship and 5 kids per woman, but the CIA has been in the way because of money while espousing nationalism and destroying democracy while censoring its advocates as first resort, blackmailing as a second and intimidation and assassination where appropriate, regardless of citizenship THE WHOLE TIME. Whatever your policy goal is, whatever your economic dream is, whatever your familial hope is, the CIA is your first and only obstacle.

  11. America blows up the German pipeline and the German government does not even complain. The video below shows the days when Germany stood up to America. On the 8 Feb 2003 German Foreign Minister Joschka Fischer, tells Donald Rumsfeld that he has not made a case for invading Iraq and Germany will not join the coalition with America.
