May 8 marks the 76th anniversary of the capitulation of the armed forces of the German Reich. However, the date does not mark the surrender of the legitimate elected Government earlier headed by the twice-elected President-Chancellor Adolf Hitler (1889-1945).
There is much information about the surrender of Imperial Japan announced by Emperor Hirohito and formally signed on September 2, 1945. But one looks in vain for similar content relating to the surrender of the German Reich and for this oversight there is a good reason.
Germany’s post-war governments are illegal squatters. The Berlin regime, according to international law is illegitimate. It has been unlawful since the collaborating armed forces of the Soviet, American and British world empires overthrew Germany’s legitimate government in 1945.
On May 1, 1945, according to Adolf Hitler’s last will and testament, Gross Admiral Karl Donitz became the legitimate head of state and supreme commander of Germany’s armed forces. Admiral Karl Donitz alone had the absolute authority to negotiate an armistice with the Allies.
The new Chancellor’s written power of attorney was legally and absolutely essential for Generalfeldmarschall Keitel, Generaloberst Stumpff and General-Admiral von Friedeburg to sign the document of (military not government) surrender carried out on May 8, 1945.
In doing so the Allies clearly accepted that Gross Admiral Karl Donitz was the only legal authority empowered under international law to do so. After the surrender Admiral Doenitz immediately and legally formed a cabinet, which took full responsibility for dealing with the problems faced by defeated Germany.
This included emergency measures, the rebuilding of the transport system, the maintenance of law and order, and securing food supplies. Gross Admiral Karl Donitz also ensured that alleged war crimes would be investigated and brought before Germany’s courts. All of these plans were submitted to the Allies for their approval.
However, the Admiral-Chancellor, having served his purpose in signing the surrender (of the armed forces), was then ignored. Unfortunately for the strutting Allied leaders the legitimate government was still the internationally recognised governing power in Germany on May 8, 1945, and onwards.
The first thought of the Admiral-Chancellor was to resign but the Reichsprasident and his cabinet expressed the unity of the Reich. It was pointed out that the surrender on May 8, 1945, affected only the German armed forces and not the German State. Had Donitz resigned the allies would have got what they really wanted, the excuse to step in with their own state apparatus.
Gross Admiral Donitz wrote afterwards: ‘I am convinced that my voluntary abdication would have been the political mistake which I could have made after the surrender.‘ (Memoirs p.463).
Over three weeks later, when the allies realised that the legal German leader was not to be so foolish as to surrender the German state, embarked on a course of action which clearly and unambiguously violated international law and convention.
According to Harold Keith Thompson, Jr. (1922-2002), a leading American authority on the Nuremberg Trials, ‘On May 23, 1945, Gross Admiral Karl Donitz and the German cabinet were ordered aboard the liner Patria. Once on board the American Chief of Protocol, Rooks accosted the group. Also present were British Brigadier Ford and Soviet Major General Truskow, and in tandem a gloating ‘American’ interpreter by the name of Herbert Cohen.’
Their statement was read out by the uniformed Allied officers: ‘By order of General Eisenhower, I called you here to have to inform you that the German Government and the Command of the German Forces with all its members shall be arrested as prisoners-of-war. The temporary German cabinet is hereby dissolved.’
At this point, British soldiers in attendance were instructed to arrested and imprison the legitimate constitutional German government including the Reich’s President-Chancellor Admiral Donitz.
Thirteen days later the allies had the effrontery to declare: ‘There is no central government or authority in Germany capable of accepting responsibility for the maintenance of order, the administration of the country and compliance with the requirements of the victorious powers.’
Well of course there wasn’t a central government. The Allied military commanders had arrested the internationally recognised German government and thrown them into prisons without leave to appeal. Little matter that in doing so the Allies had impudently violated the first principle of international law on which they had declared World War II in the first place.
According to Article 43 of the Hague Convention, to which the Allies were signatories: ‘it is never permitted that the occupying forces change the system of legislation, jurisdiction or administration. That never under even military necessities must the aims of the war be executed by military occupation.’
The irony was that the legitimate elected government of Germany, as recognised under international law, was overthrown by the allies, and a dictatorship imposed in its place.
The British Commander-in-Chief put it this way: ‘The present occupation in Germany has no precedent and such a situation was never envisaged by the authors of the Hague Convention.
‘There is no German Government: the four commanders-in-chief exercise Supreme authority, each in his own zone of occupation, and also jointly in matters affecting Germany as a whole. In view of the supreme authority invested in them, there is no limit in their powers save these, which they choose to adopt.’
Indeed confirmation of the illegal seizure of Germany was provided by the Supreme Constitutional Court of the Federal Republic of Germany, in a judgement of July 31, 1973. This emphatically states that ‘the state (legitimate government of the National Socialist German Workers Party (NSDAP) survived the collapse of 1945, and the founding of the Federal Republic was not the creation of a new West German state but only the temporary arrangement of a part of the Reich.’
What is left of the Reich remains under Allied occupation. Those who bear the title ‘chancellor’ are nothing of the sort. Angela Merkel and her predecessors are Washington DC approved vassals. Merkel and her cohorts have no legitimacy under international law. ~ Mike Walsh.

Excellent synopsis. The incredible thing is, literally NO ONE knows this. The entire world has been kept totally ignorant of the facts, buried under a relentless Tsunami of manufactured atrocity propaganda, the extent of which boggles the mind. It is exactly that which enables the powers-that-be to maintain the charade – a lie bigger than anything ever imagined. The average person rightfully thinks this cannot be, the lies printed in the encyclopedias and history books must be true.

Certainly the school children in Germany never learn this truth about their government! Understatement of the year.
