Bizarre: The Anti-EU Blogger Who Despises National Banking

In her recent Daily Mail blog article on the topic of Declan Ganley’s call for a United States of Europe, based on the precise formulation set out on the US Federal Constitution, and explicitly based on Hamiltonian national banking, ME Synon betrays a violently anti-federalist outlook which, while entirely appropriate with reference to the anti-republican corporate kleptocracy that animates the European Union, simply replays the age old republican vs federalist dispute which plagued the founding fathers in the early years of US Independence.

For those who have followed Declan Ganley’s political career since his famous, and successful efforts, to defeat the first Lisbon treaty referendum in Ireland, the issue of his pro-federalist leanings is hardly a revelation.

It is quite interesting however that just as the political debate in the United States itself turns to the immediate urgency of the reinstitution of a national bank to replace the bankrupt federal reserve, developments which are surely the inspiration for Mr Ganley’s own ideas, we have British journalists attacking not only Alexander Hamilton in person, but  also the entire edifice of the Federal Constitution which he was instrumental in securing by means of his economic policies.

It could just be a co-incidence, but wiser heads will detect the spoor of a particularly nasty Anglo-American rat, whose poisoning of the rapidly flowing stream of national economic recovery, harks back to the good old days of Lord Robert Cecil (later known as the Marquess of Salisbury) who lectured the House of Lords in 1862 on why the American Union should be broken up:

we are rivals, rivals politically, rivals commercially. We aspire to the same position. We both aspire to the government of the seas. We are both manufacturing people, and in every port, as well as at every court, we are rivals to each other.... With respect to the Southern States, the case is entirely reversed. The population are an agricultural people. They furnish the raw material of our industry, and they consume the products which we manufacture from it. With them, therefore, every interest must lead us to cultivate friendly relations, and we have seen that when the [American Civil] war began they at once recurred to England as their natural ally.
