Karl-Theodor zu Guttnberg wants to continue business relations with the USA. The following was machine-translated from German:
25 June 2017
When the former Minister of Economic and Defense Affairs Karl-Theodor zu Guttenberg appears, the interest is great.Even in his free-speech talk about the world after US President Donald Trump on the day of the family entrepreneurs, no one in the hall talks in between. Then he is surrounded. We know each other. As a co-founder of Spitzberg Partners, he is reluctant to oppose the media. He can not answer some questions. Nevertheless, after the lunch he takes almost ten minutes for the Handelsblatt.
Mr zu Guttenberg, you would recommend the family business to continue to maintain contacts with the USA and put it in the after-trump era. What are the corporate executives to do?
It is not done with politics and politics exchanging. Many family businesses have long-standing connections to the USA. They should build a bridge themselves: economy to economy and economy to local politics. Also below the national governments. http://www.handelsblatt.com/unternehmen/mittelstand/karl-theodor-zu-guttenberg-eine-marktluecke-entdeckt/19977484.html
Notice that the article shows that Herr Guttenberg is still commanding a lot of attention.
He has made various statements about Donald Trump. In December 2015, Karl-Theodor zu Guttenberg called Donald Trump “that blonde lunatic named Donald” (Wish List or Reality? Digital Trends in 2016 | Karl-Theodor zu Guttenberg | hub conference. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dgdZUA96UBU. Posted December 11, 2015; watch also Karl-Theodor zu Guttenberg and Europe’s Future).
In 2017, Herr Guttenberg has urged Germany to do more because of the rise of Donald Trump:
Former Defense Minister Karl-Theodor zu Guttenberg has called on Germany to become more self-assertive with Donald Trump, a president who he believes may well bring about an era of “erratic” politics. …
former German Defense Minister Karl-Theodor zu Guttenberg has called on Berlin to ditch what he called its “passive, wait-and-see” attitude towards the United States and nurture “a culture of responsibility” instead.
In a guest column in German daily Frankfurter Allgemeine Zeitung, published Friday, the former conservative politician said Mr. Trump’s rise was a time for the German government to “be prepared to do more.” 01/20/17 https://global.handelsblatt.com/politics/time-for-tough-talk-with-trump-687154
Karl-Theodor zu Guttenberg was interviewed on Fox Business Network’s Mornings with Maria in May 2017, about Donald Trump’s plans to pull out of the Paris climate agreement, he stated:
I think this will weaken the US’s position on the international stage. I think the reaction will be harsh on the other side of the Atlantic. And I fear that might zero into further tensions into other topics. http://www.msn.com/en-au/news/australia/exiting-paris-agreement-will-weaken-us-kt-zu-guttenberg/vp-BBBJzIO
Many in Europe agree with Herr Guttenberg’s assessment of Donald Trump.
The Bible shows that Europe will ultimately turn to a ‘strongman’ of its own in Revelation 17:12-13–one who is able to monitor buying and selling.
This may very well be Karl-Theodor zu Guttenberg.
Even since his self-imposed exile, he has been in the news on a fairly regular basis. As regular readers of this page are aware, he has had some connections with digital currencies. Notice the following:
May 15, 2017
The former head of Germany’s armed forces is now helping to bring blockchain tech to some of the world’s largest financial institutions.
An early advisor to distributed financial technology firm Ripple, not to mention a bonafide German baron, Karl-Theodor zu Guttenberg today plays a key role in enabling the heavily funded startup to make inroads in the banking sector. But as co-founder of consultancy Spitzberg Partners, he is setting his sights beyond finance.
Over the course of his time at both the Ministry of Defense and Minister of Economics & Technology, zu Guttenberg built up an extensive network of global politicians, technologists and bankers.
Long rumored to be a potential candidate to replace his former boss, German Chancellor Angela Merkel, zu Guttenberg last month revealed exclusively to CoinDesk that his firm had partnered with the State of Delaware’s blockchain initiative to help bring a global tech cohort to the tiny US state. …
Zu Guttenberg cited smaller nations such as Estonia and Singapore, and jurisdictions including the Zug region of Switzerland and Delaware, as fundamental testing grounds for the types of legislation that might one day underpin a new financial infrastructure.
Specifically, he said the “charm” of Delaware’s increasing openness to blockchain should serve as a template for jurisdictions around the world. http://www.coindesk.com/meet-the-german-baron-who-thinks-blockchain-will-beat-the-middlemen/
Baron Guttenberg, thus, has some expertise in digital currencies–which can be used to monitor buying and selling. Also, if the USA or State of Delaware do something later against digital currencies, this could turn him further against the USA.
I expect that Karl-Theodor zu Guttenberg will further encourage Europe to try to take the lead on more international matters.
As regular readers of this page are aware, there are 9 speculative predictions I have posted over the years related to Herr Guttenberg that have been at least partially fulfilled:
- He has advocated more European military cooperation.
- He became unpopular for a time (and still is among many).
- He ended up, for a time, outside of political office.
- He went out of the limelight for a while.
- He went into exile (self-imposed).
- His exile was to a humid location.
- He has partially re-emerged in European politics.
- He has called for Germany to consider being a leader in data protection.
- He now has a beard.
Note: He did NOT have a beard when I first posted something that indicated that he could get one. He is also urging Germany to take steps that would tend to distance it from being under USA leadership.
Several of those predictions were based upon my understanding of prophecies in the books of Daniel and Revelation, plus outside sources.
