A United States Of Europe Is Emerging … Once Established It Will Be A Fulfilment Of Bible Prophecy

I …  Europeans experienced a massive loss of national sovereignty the week ending January 14, 2011, as Europe implemented its first ever European Semester that institutes fiscal federalism as a principle of economic governance
The Leaders Framework Agreement for fiscal federalism cannot offset the problems stemming from disparate people with dissimilar economies using a common currency. Historical evidence suggests that most currency unions don’t survive.

The Leaders in announcing their Framework Agreement waived national sovereignty and established the precedent for leaders to address continental issues. Confirmation of such comes from Donal Donovan, now a writer for Irish Times, who was a staff member of the IMF during 1977-2005 before retiring as a deputy director; he is currently adjunct professor at the University of Limerick and a visiting lecturer at Trinity College Dublin, writes Loss Of Fiscal Sovereignty Inevitable If Euro To Survive.

And Steven Erlanger in New York Times article Europe’s Odd Couple, sees a vision for a German led Eurozone stating: “John Kornblum, the former American ambassador in Berlin and still a resident there, sees a model for Germany in the United States and the way it helped keep Europe together after the war, mediating disputes and finding compromises. “The Germans don’t see it yet,” he says. “But they will have to take on the role of the United States in Europe, and have the same kind of balancing role we had for such a long time.” At that point, Germany’s marriage with France won’t matter so much anymore.”

The European Parliament Committee For Economic And Monetary Affairs reports: “Mario Monti on Thursday added his weight to Parliament’s drive for an economic governance model significantly different to that attempted in the first ten years of economic and monetary union.

“The European Parliament can become a house for budgetary transparency and can serve to combat the cartel of nationalism which dominated the last years of economic and monetary union”, he said.

At a brainstorming hearing on economic governance held by the Economic and Monetary Affairs Committee, Mr Monti, a former EU Commissioner and now President of Milan’s Bocconi university, joined other leading academics in explaining their ideas on the best way forward for economic governance in the EU.

They were unanimous on at least one issue – Europe’s interest in greater economic integration must take precedence over national and electoral concerns, as the only way to ensure greater long-term discipline, which in turn is the only way to growth. The plans currently on the table show a serious lack ambition, they added.

Participants also debated how to improve debt crisis burden sharing, notably through the possible design of Eurobonds.”  

And David Korosi, shares his views on the superstructure of the “economic giant” relating in article The Spinelli Phenomenon: “Altiero Spinelli was the heavyweight of the European federalist movement, first as activist, then as a very hardworking MEP. What do classic federalism want? “Prominent MEPs launched on 15 September 2010 the Spinelli Group, a network aimed at overcoming nationalism and promoting federalism across Europe”- says EurActiv informing us of the newest action of the (neo)federalist group of intellectuals. “I am still optimistic however, that the crisis will lead Europe to establish an economic union. I see no alternative” – said Joschka Fischer, member of the Spinelli Group.”

II … European Federalists met in conference this week to organize and plan for a European Superstate.
On January 13, 2011, The European Parliament published the article Joschka Fischer: European states must “combine interests” for common good, Mr. Fischer was born 1948 in Germany, is a prominent Green politician, was Foreign Affairs Minister 1998-2005 under Gerhard Schröder, is creator and member of the think tank European Council on Foreign Relations, and is currently political advisor for the Nabucco pipeline. He was at the European Parliament Wednesday, 12 January, to take part in a conference organized by the Spinelli Group entitled “The United States of Europe – Towards a Transnational Society?

An avowed federalist on European matters, Mr Fischer used the conference to call for greater European unity and for Europe to “combine our interests” to weather the economic storm.

He said: “I am still optimistic however, that the crisis will lead Europe to establish an economic union. I see no alternative.” And was asked: What should the Europe of the future resemble? He replied: “It’s very simple. Every day we are losing part of our sovereignty to the emerging powers. Yet we still wonder if we should abandon our sovereignty (in favour of the EU) or not. We are losing that sovereignty anyway! It’s just that it is going to non-European powers in the East (like China). We are losing importance and losing our position. The world is changing dramatically and the question that Europeans must answer is what will be the place of Europe in ten years. Europe must be strong. This will only be possible if we combine our interests. It’s laborious but it is possible if we exercise our sovereignty in a common manner. The aim would be to enter the “United States of Europe”, a true association of democratic states that pool their sovereignty. But our national identities continue to exist and the United Nations will continue therefore to play a strong role.”

Matic Bitenc attended the conference and wrote in article The Unites States Of Europe Debate:  “Thus I was very pleased to take advantage of that fact when I received an invitation to a debate about European federalism organised by the Spinelli group in the European parliament in Brussels. The Spinelli group is an assembly, mostly consisting of European politicians and officials who believe that the solution to the global challenges facing us all is a more tightly integrated European Union, preferably along federalist lines. While that alone might not have gotten me to come, the names of Joschka Fischer, Daniel Cohn-Bendit and Jean-Marc Ferry on the debate panel provided the much needed motivation.

Joschka Fisher I think really got to the crux of the transfer of sovereignty debate. He started out by bringing attention to the fact that the transatlantic West is losing its global supremacy it held for so long. While that might be something that even the birds on the roof are already singing, as we say in Slovenia, understanding the effect of that process on national sovereignty is crucial. The core and substance of sovereignty is basically autonomous power. Can you take a decision and bring it to fruition in reality? With the economic and political rise of Asia, Europe is losing its clout in the world and its decisions matter less globally if they are even realised. National sovereignties are many times an illusion. Effectively sovereignty is being transferred to Asia with an economic process, whether we like it or not. Case in point being the Copenhagen climate summit where EU countries were left out of the room and USA and China were the ones really discussing things. Thus we should reach over our petty nationalisms that keep us from pooling sovereignty further in the European Union. Only so will we be able to regain the European influence in the world, by speaking in one voice. This principle applies not only directly to foreign policy but to almost every other area, economy, research, anything with global implications really. As Jean-Marc Ferry wisely pointed out, that’s why globalisation is probably the main “selling point” of the European Union for the 21st century, much like keeping peace in Europe was after the second World War and most of the 20th century.

The debate was interesting, even-though I get the feeling the participants could have listened and actually interacted with each other more. Was it fruitful? Well, despite the completely full auditorium it seemed to me that they were preaching to the choir of already convinced. debates like this are only useful if they lead to some concrete action from the mindshare gained. While I have my doubts, I do hope the Spinelli group with its high-placed members has some more of concrete action up their sleeves.”

I want to go back just a short period in time to November 2, 2010 to reference Centurean2’s article The time of the homogenous nation-state is over – Van Rompuy, where the leader is quoted as saying: “We have together to fight the danger of a new Euro-scepticism. This is no longer the monopoly of a few countries. In every Member State, there are people who believe their country can survive alone in the globalised world. It is more than an illusion: it is a lie! The time of the homogeneous nation-state is over.”

And I reference the September 1, 1996 Lindsay Jenkins report which identified the Godfather of the European Union: Altiero Spinelli. Few in Britain have heard of the Italian Leninist and former Stalinist, Altiero Spinelli. Yet federalists at the heart of the European Union fully recognise the importance of Spinelli’s contribution to the creation of the European Union. His impact on the birth of the European Super State has been momentous.

Writing in his book The United States of Europe, Spinelli recommended “set[ting] up a few simple federal institutions, which must be solid, irrevocable [a word we have heard many times since] and easily understood. It will not be necessary to trouble much with individual national problems. The federation would provide the necessary internal order to which progressive forces would naturally adjust and from which they would derive their future character.”

“Between March and June 1944 five meetings were held in ‘t Hooft’s house. The participants signed the International Federalists’ Declaration, which was edited by the Italians and based on the Ventotene Manifesto. They wanted “to go beyond the dogma of the absolute sovereignty of the state and unite in a single federal organisation. The lack of unity and cohesion that still exists between the different parts of the world will not allow us to achieve immediately an organisation that unites all civilisations under a single federal government. At the end of the war one will therefore have to be content with setting up a universal organisation of a less ambitious kind, but one able to develop in the direction of federal unity.”

III …The sovereign debt and bank debt imbroglio will only get worse, as central bankers have lost debt sovereignty to bond vigilantes who have taken command of sovereign debt interest rates. This has opened the door for currency traders to run currencies up and down at will.

An example of their power, as they called the Euro, FXE, higher to end the week at 133.20, manifesting a “converge trade” in the Euro which caused the European Financials, EUFN, to rise to 22.69. The same traders executed a “dollar liquidity trade” that recently ran up the US Stocks, VTI, across the board, with everything from the mall cap stocks, such as the small cap discretionary shares, XLYS, small cap energy shares, XLES, and the small cap information technology shares, XLKS, to the trans-global companies like Exxon Mobil, XOM, receiving the currency traders moneyness.

Soon, out of deepening European sovereign crisis, fierce European economic governance will arise, led by a Chancellor, that is a Sovereign, and a Banker, that is a Seignior, to rule and provide moneyness.   

Perhaps the Chancellor will be Herman Van Rompuy, as Open Europe in Press Summary for December 24, 2010 related that in NRC Handelsblad article: ‘Van Rompuy: Eurozone Wordt Politieke Unie’, EU President Herman Van Rompuy stated: “the eurozone will become a political union”. And in ForexLive Market News International article EU Van Rompuy: Political Will For Permanent EFSF Now Stronger he stated: “The general feeling among all the main-players, all the 27, is that they will take every necessary step to safeguard financial stability. This political will is now a lot more clear than a few weeks ago.” “You can be sure that, if needed, we will take any step to guarantee financial stability,” he said. Van Rompuy also said that weaker eurozone states must meet their fiscal targets in order to improve investor confidence.”

Perhaps the Banker will be the EU’s top monetary official who said the euro 440 billion ($570 billion) bailout fund for debt ridden countries should be increased and given more powers. Monetary Affairs Commissioner Olli Rehn said that discussions with the 17 eurozone governments on boosting the size of the fund were currently going on “and progress is being made.” Rehn says “we need to review all options of the size and scope of our financial backstops,” according to Raven Clabough in New American article EU Officials Want Larger Bailout Fund

This dynamic duo is presented in Bible prophecy, the Sovereign is foretold in Revelation 13:5-10 and the Seignior in Revelation 13:11 -17. Eventualy they will rise to rule the world in brutal global governance as related by Daniel in Daniel 7:7.

IV … Summary

A federalize Europe which is presented in Bible prophecy of Daniel 2:40-43. There has been four great world powers since Daniel wrote the prophecy: Babylon, Persia, and Greece were all conquered and absorbed by the Roman Empire. All were described in the form of a giant statue representing the four Kingdoms. Babylon was the head of gold. Persia was the chest and arms of silver. Greece was the belly and thighs of bronze, followed by the two appearances of Rome, two legs of iron, Western and Eastern. And two feet of iron mixed with clay, which will be a revived Roman Empire coming forth as a United States of Europe whose influence will spread to ten toes, that being ten regions of global governance, which was called for by the Club of Rome in 1974, and which is described as a ten headed beast, manifesting in mankind’s seven institutions in Revelation 13:1-4.  Soon a EU President will be Caesar over a Revived Roman Empire. This Chancellor, or Sovereign, is described in Revelation 13:5-10. He or she will be accompanied by a Banker, a Seignior, as described in Revelation 13:11-18. Their rule will become global; it is described by Daniel in Daniel 7:7:  “After that, in my vision at night I looked, and there before me was a fourth beast, terrifying and frightening and very powerful. It had large iron teeth; it crushed and devoured its victims and trampled underfoot whatever was left. It was different from all the former beasts, and it had ten horns.”
