Large sections of the resistance have frozen in awe. The “great” mainstream author Ulrike Guérot, née Hammelstein, fights for fundamental rights and against corona measures while being systematically bullied by TV and newspapers. Anyone who is interested in what the lady did up to the age of 56 may have even more reason to be astonished – she sat in Soros’ ECFR, spoke at the WEF and, as a testimonial for Deutsche Bank, declared that we finally had to bring together the nation states abolish.
A comment by Willi Huber
Anyone who knows someone’s past has at least a toolbox of arguments to judge their current actions. One thinks of Volodymyr Zelenskyj, multi-millionaire, friend of the oligarchs and, reportedly, a highly corrupt ex-television comedian, who is now playing the “good defender of Ukraine”. You might believe that for a few minutes if you don’t know the history. I do not believe him.
Similar alarm sirens ring out in me when I look at Ms. Ulrike Guérot. Her résumé is amazing that she was still able to reach the hearts of many people in the resistance as well. Your oh so differentiated and selectively critical statements on the alleged corona pandemic as well as your opinion on the Ukraine conflict, which is not suitable for the mainstream, sound hollow to me. However, many people have no idea what Ms. Guérot used to do.
First, let’s look at her 2018 promotional video that she shot for Deutsche Bank. In it, she explained what she’s fought for in books and in performance for years: The total self-abandonment of the European nations and peoples to the arbitrariness of globalism. A Moloch state should take the place of the countries that have grown over thousands of years and regulate everything. We will find out a little later which criteria Ms. Guérot uses to form her opinions – you will be amazed!
Participation and contribution to the World Economic Forum (WEF)
Ms. Guérot is listed in the People section of the World Economic Forum, which she attended in 2019. It’s no secret – like all the other information in this article is no secret – you can too in their official CV read. Guérot spoke there on the topic “A New Agenda for Europe” – “a new agenda for Europe” and a second time on the topic “Averting ‚Peak Europe‘“ – “Prevention of a ‘Europe – apex’”. She must have been involved with the WEF for a long time. In 2018, for example, she criticized Angela Merkel’s appearance there, saying that it had not been specific and convincing enough – with regard to her favorite project, a greater Europe without nation states.
And yesterday you could already see that Macron, Ms. Merkel, Gentiloni, Trudeau, of course, the Canadian Prime Minister, were basically the four who said, we oppose it, we still need an open world system, world economic system, but above all, an open political system. That was all good too.
Now one could say that these would be one-time gaffes and apart from that one has to seek dialogue, it’s not wrong to talk to each other – not even at the World Economic Forum. What you forget is the fact that no dissenting voices are invited there – whoever appears there is handpicked and contributes to the desired agenda. This is the logical result of Ms. Guérot’s life’s work, as will be explained later.
Deeply rooted in George Soros’ network
Guérot’s connection to George Soros is far more intensive than his contacts with Klaus Schwab and his world domination elite. While the Austrian ex-Chancellor Kurz has been accused of being a member of some ECFR body, which I don’t think means much, Guérot was once the founder and director of the Berlin office of the ECFR – from 2007 to 2013. After that the activity as “Senior Associate” in Soros’ Open Society Initiative for Europe. In the NZZ she is referred to as “George Soros’s girlfriend”. One might think that she is also acting within the framework of the “European Democracy Lab” as the multi-billionaire’s deputy and presumed world leader. This is a think tank that aims to drive the United States of Europe forward and bring it to fruition. The money for this NGO, whose homepage consists of a tribute to Guérot and her books, comes from George Soros’ Open Society Foundation, Between Bridges Foundation and the Federal Agency for Political Education. They weren’t all there “until 2020” as supporters and partners, they are still there today.
In this context, an analysis by Hadmut Danisch, “Ulrike Guérot and the ‘Republic of Europe’” is worth reading. In it he states:
It almost pulls your socks off, from content such as gestures and demeanor. How does an IHK come to let such people perform? You have to see it, otherwise you wouldn’t believe it. It’s such a really totalitarian, “Marxfascist” system, she acts as Soros’ deputy, and that’s how politicians, journalists and the public are influenced.
We are talking about Guérot’s lecture from 2016, which you can watch can lead to heart here. And yes, it is a special highlight in the work of the lady, who now considers herself critical and resistant. Resistance to their vision of a greater Europe would be a crisis of masculinity, fear of castration – and Europe would be a woman.
Professorship without habilitation
Anyone familiar with the Austrian system will shudder when they hear “Donauuni Krems”. The part-time university is known for high tuition fees. For legal reasons, I don’t want to lean out the window further. This excerpt from Wikipedia might be interesting: From April 2016 to August 2021, Guérot was a professor at the University for Continuing Education Krems, where she headed the Department of European Politics and Democracy Research (DED). When she was appointed, the University of Krems recognized her cumulative publications as an achievement equivalent to her habilitation. It has now become common for certain elites to receive a professorship without a habilitation, just think of “Professor” Drosten. Guérot has been a professor at the University of Bonn since September 2021.
Plagiarism and made-up quotes
Together with the Austrian system favourite, Robert Menasse, she is driving the agenda of a Europe without state governments and without nation states. A joint book led to a scandal, important quotes in the book would have been fictitious. Guérot later explained that these errors in content were to be blamed on Menasse – she herself had never checked sources. Menasse, with his usual arrogance, declared that as an artist he was allowed to do that, it would fit (“What do I care about the literal when it’s about the meaning”).
With all the made-up quotes from great figures like Walter Hallstein, a sort of founding father of the EU and former President of the European Commission, was about the abolition of the nation states. Jean Monnet, also the founding father of the EU, was repeatedly tried with apparently fictitious texts:
Menasse claimed that Monnet had said: “(…) national interests are nothing other than the short-sighted economic interests of national elites, the satisfaction of which turns one’s own population and the populations of other nations into write-offs in the accounts of this economy, into victims in concrete life”. Among other things, he wrote to Hallstein: “The goal is and remains the overcoming of nations”.
Neither Monnet nor Hallstein had said the right sentences or made the right speeches. One of these is particularly distasteful, Menasse claiming a speech he quoted was given at Auschwitz in 1958.
Guerot published together with Menasse for years, and German media proved that she had used quotes from Hallstein that were made up in 2013. Menasse is also to blame for this. Guérot’s current bestseller “Who is silent agrees” is said to contain numerous unmarked quotations from other authors and thus plagiarism. It is doubtful whether Menasse is also to blame for this.
How opinion-forming works for Ms. Guerot
In his B&Besuch interview series, the German philosopher Matthias Burchardt spoke to Ulrike Guérot (see link to recording). From the 20th minute, Guérot explained how she changed her mind about Turkey joining the EU in 2000. At first she was critical of enlargement. During a trip to Turkey, she slept with an Algerian in Istanbul. From this overall mood, it emerged that she expressly welcomed Turkey’s accession all of a sudden. Not least because of this, some of my acquaintances describe Guérot as “rather naïve”. I abstain from voting, also in order not to commit an excess of evaluation.
It should also be mentioned how Burchardt primitively demeaned legitimate doubts about Guérot’s sincerity: Minute 27:45 “Ulrike Guérot was at the World Economic Forum, she is in favor of the abolition of the nation state and you quickly add one and one and get three. She represents the interests of Bill Gates.‘ The rhetorical trick Burchardt employs here is dishonest and essentially primitive. Criticism of Ms. Guérot is generally ridiculed by a conclusion that nobody has claimed in this way, doubters would probably not be quite close. This is a perfidious methodology, as known from the mainstream.
Other key points in the CV
The excursions into the world of the globalist elite were not snapshots but the rule. Guérot was a member of the CDU until 2015. It was there that her career began as a parliamentary assistant to the foreign policy spokesman Karl Lamers. Back then, in 1994, she was involved in Schäuble-Lamer’s paper on deepening the European Union. One of the next career leaps took her to Johns Hopkins University in Washington, then to the German Society for Foreign Policy in Berlin. It was followed by the deeply transatlantic and globalist German Marshall Fund, then the aforementioned Soros organizations.
I dare to say that Ms. Guérot has opposed freedom and self-determination all her life, sometimes mocking them with “feminist” to “left-wing Marxist” methods – until she suddenly, at the age of 57, changed her mind – at least with regard to violations of fundamental rights during the Corona crisis and the warmongering in the Ukraine conflict. You can believe that. But you don’t have to.
Switching sides again would be an often seen strategy
What you can learn from the Guérot case is to seek dialogue with everyone. Even if they have a strange history, every human being deserves to be heard. A good idea can actually come from any page. Exclusion is always at the beginning of fascism, totalitarianism, dictatorship. What you must not forget, however, is a great deal of caution. Just because you agree with someone on something doesn’t make them a friend you can trust blindly.
It would be a brilliant move of the system if Ms. Guérot – like so many top athletes – admits to the public that it was all just a big mistake. Nothing weakens the resistance more than supposed leaders who change sides at a critical moment. This trick was used several times in Germany – successfully – with the AFD, and Pegida was also decapitated with it. The future will show whether this will happen or whether Ms. Guérot will continue to fight steadily for freedom.
