Germany is attempting to construct a “Fourth Reich” by pressing for a European Union federal union, according to Poland’s Deputy Prime Minister Jaroslaw Kaczyski, leader of the nation’s governing Law and Justice party (PiS).
The Polish are Right to be Worried
Mr. Kaczyski made his remarks last week in an appearance with Polish media, noting the phrase “Fourth Reich” referred to the Holy Roman Empire’s “First Reich,” rather than the Third Reich of Nationalist Socialist Germany (Nazi Germany).
According to Kronen Zeitung, the Polish traditionalist stated if his fellow countrymen agreed to greater federalization of the European Union, “we would be humiliated in numerous ways.”
He said such a change to the EU would equal to the Polish people’s “modern slavery.”

In accordance of the “traffic light coalition” agreement reached earlier this month, the new German left-green-liberal alliance government committed to strive for more federalization of the European Union.
The other week, German Chancellor Olaf Scholz paid his first visit to Poland, meeting with Polish Prime Minister Mateusz Morawiecki.
He expressed his resistance to a centralized EU superstate, calling such a move “bureaucracy centralism” and asserting “Europe will be powerful if it is a Europe of sovereign countries.”
During his visit, Scholz did voice sympathy for Poland’s continuing migrant problem, which he said was a type of “hybrid warfare” orchestrated by Belarus.
“I revealed to the Chancellor the [Alexander] Lukashenko government’s new methods in this intentionally induced migratory crisis, the use of people as living shields, as weaponry,” Prime Minister Morawiecki stated.
Both nations are still at odds over legal review. The European Union filed a lawsuit against Poland early this week after the country’s high court declared the Polish constitution overrides European law in some cases.
The myth of a federal Europe which will be strong enough against China, Russia or USA is a demagogic leftist tale.
In practice we will have a big bureaucracy that nobody understand. Less efficient states. No democracy but more immigrants and more LGBT.

What Happens Next?
It is unthinkable that Germany would attempt to repeat the past by trying a take over of Europe. We know they can not use their military; it is not strong enough, however, they are more than capable of using diplomacy to achieve their goals.
Biden has a massive global crisis on his hands. For one, the Russians are massed on the Ukrainian border and ready to invade.
On the other hand, the Chinese are forever threatening to invade Taiwan. To add to his list of woes, the Iran nuclear deal is about to fold and now, Germany is on the move.
How will he handle the issue?
Under Trump, we knew strong leadership would keep the world’s villains at bay. Biden is a different man; his weak foreign stance gives America’s enemies the go-ahead to begin their moves for power.
It is only a matter of time now before a major conflict is sparked, due to China’s aggression towards Taiwan in the South China Sea.
