Ovation for Merkel ally Guttenberg on his political come-back

31 August 2017

BERLIN: The man once touted as Germany’s chancellor-in-waiting before his sudden fall from grace made his long-anticipated return to German politics on Wednesday with a speech hailing Angela Merkel as the right person to steer her country in uncertain times.

Karl-Theodor zu Guttenberg, who was Germany’s most popular politician until brought down, aged just 38, by the revelation that he had plagiarized his doctorate, presented himself as a chastened figure.

“I want to thank those people who, quite rightly, sharply criticised me for my failings. I learned much from them,” said the former defence minister, who has spent the past six years working for an investment firm in New York.

Guttenberg was received enthusiastically by members of his conservative Christian Social Union (CSU) party in the Bavarian town of Kulmbach, where the aristocrat’s former family castle is located.

Describing a “disordered” world beset by crises, with Donald Trump in the White House, the Korean peninsula on the brink of a nuclear stand-off and autocrats “trying to divide the West”, Guttenberg said Germany was “in the very best hands with my former boss” Angela Merkel. …

Although Guttenberg, married to a descendent of Germany’s 19th century Iron Chancellor Otto von Bismarck, has been cagey about the possibility of a more permanent political come-back, Merkel has welcomed her close ally’s campaign contribution. http://www.channelnewsasia.com/news/world/ovation-for-merkel-ally-guttenberg-on-his-political-come-back-9172614

He “fell from grace” because of a plagiarism scandal, yet Baron Guttenberg is still commanding a lot of attention.

The following was machine-translated from German and is followed by the original German related to him:

31 August 2017

Ex-CSU hopeful Karl-Theodor zu Guttenberg makes election campaign. In doing so, he appears selflessly, purified and attacking. The entertainer has not forgotten anything.

The tendency to connect politics with a touch of theater – in this case cabaret – has been preserved by the baron. For example, when he tells how President Trump is turning a light bulb: “He’s going to a chair, waiting for the world to turn around.” The fact that with Mike “Mickey” Pence and Donald Trump times two Disney figures in the White House sat, probably not even their creator dreamed. Guttenberg is a politician, Kim Jon Il calls him a “Dickmops with funny haircut”. Sigmar Gabriel is currently undergoing a “slimming down”, he hopes that the foreign minister will not start with marathon runs and ends like Joschka Fischer as a “drizzle”.

Guttenberg takes his audience on a journey through the world: “We had the Brexit, an interesting choice in the US, a worrying crisis with and around North Korea, the Middle East is still in flames, Venezuela is threatening to crumble. “

Ex-CSU-Hoffnungsträger Karl-Theodor zu Guttenberg macht Wahlkampf. Er tritt dabei selbstironisch, geläutert und angriffslustig auf. Der Entertainer hat nichts verlernt. …

Die Neigung, Politik mit einem Touch von Theater zu verbinden – in diesem Fall Kabarett – hat der Baron konserviert. Zum Beispiel wenn er erzählt, wie US-Präsident Trump eine Glühbirne eindrehe: “Er steigt auf einen Stuhl und wartet, dass sich die Welt um ihn dreht.” Dass mit Mike “Mickey” Pence und Donald Trump mal zwei Disney-Figuren im Weißen Haus säßen, habe sich wohl nicht mal deren Schöpfer träumen lassen. Guttenberg zieht über Politiker her, Kim Jon Il nennt er einen “Dickmops mit lustigem Haarschnitt”. Sigmar Gabriel mache gerade eine “Verschlankung” durch, er hoffe, der Außenminister fange nicht auch noch an mit Marathonläufen und ende wie Joschka Fischer als “Dörrzwetschge”.

Zwischen seinen Kalauern nimmt Guttenberg sein Publikum mit auf eine Reise durch die Welt: “Wir hatten den Brexit, eine interessante Wahl in den USA, eine besorgniserregende Krise mit und um Nordkorea, der Nahe Osten steht noch immer in Flammen, Venezuela droht zu zerbröseln.” http://www.zeit.de/politik/deutschland/2017-08/karl-theodor-zu-guttenberg-comeback-kulmbach-bundestagswahl

He continues to make various statements about international politics, Donald Trump, and Brexit.

Brexit, itself, is again in the news:

Brexit talks yield ‘no decisive progress,’ says EU negotiator Michel Barnier

31 August 2017

Four days of talks over Britain’s planned departure from the European Union have come to end. But officials from both sides of the table have been critical of the lack of progress. http://www.dw.com/en/brexit-talks-yield-no-decisive-progress-says-eu-negotiator-michel-barnier/a-40310785

Brexit is something that the Europeans fully blame on the UK. This will not end well for the UK.

Getting back to Karl-Theodor zu Guttenberg, in 2015 he 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 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.

This may very well be Karl-Theodor zu Guttenberg. At minimum if it is not him, I believe he would support the one that the Book of Daniel calls final King of the North and the Book of Revelation calls the Beast of the Sea.

The Bible tells of a person who had problems becoming the final King of the North European Beast power. Here are three translations of a passage that does so:

21 And there shall stand up in his place one despised, and the kingly honour shall not be given him: and he shall come privately, and shall obtain the kingdom by fraud. (Daniel 11:21, Douay-Rheims)

21 “‘His place will be taken by a reject, a man spurned and passed over for advancement. He’ll surprise everyone, seemingly coming out of nowhere, and will seize the kingdom. (Daniel 11:21 from THE MESSAGE: The Bible in Contemporary Language © 2002 by Eugene H. Peterson. All rights reserved.)

21 And in his place shall stand up a contemptible person, to whom they had not given the honor of the kingdom: but he shall come in time of security, and shall obtain the kingdom by flatteries. (Daniel 11:21, ASV)

Even since his self-imposed exile, he has been in the news on a fairly regular basis.

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:

  1. He has advocated more European military cooperation.
  2. He became unpopular for a time (and still is among many).
  3. He ended up, for a time, outside of political office.
  4. He went out of the limelight for a while.
  5. He went into exile (self-imposed).
  6. His exile was to a humid location.
  7. He has partially re-emerged in European politics.
  8. He has called for Germany to consider being a leader in data protection.
  9. 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. Others were based on outside sources that were not in conflict with biblical ones.

While these 9 speculative predictions do NOT prove that he is going to be the final King of the North European Beast power, he bears watching. His statements and actions are consistent with one who will be, or at least will support, something in Europe that the Bible warns against.
