1) … A Sovereign and a Seignior are about to make their European debut.
FT article Italian Government On Brink Of Collapse quotes Silvio Berlusconi as saying “No one in the EU can nominate themselves as special administrators and speak in the name of elected governments and the European people.”
This is one of the most timely remarks of this age. The seigniorage, that is the moneyness of Neoliberalism, came through the securitization of Treasury Debt, floating currencies, yen carry trade investing, the creation and use of the Euro, securitization of GSE debt by mortgage, and US Federal Reserve credit liquidity, ZIRP, quantitative easing 1 and 2.
The seigniorage of Neoauthoritarianism will come through diktat. Out of a soon coming Sovereign Armageddon, a sovereign debt and banking collapse, Eurozone Leaders will waive national sovereignty, and announce regional framework agreements which call for structural reforms which liberalize labor markets and overhaul pension systems, establish a Fiscal Union, which governs fiscal policy and manages spending, provides wider powers for the ECB, integrates banks with government, and establishes a stakeholder group from government and industry to oversee credit for companies critical to the security and prosperity of the region.
Bible prophecy foretells, a Leader, the Sovereign, Revelation 13:5-10, will arise to speak for and to the Eurozone; and together with his banking partner, the Seignior, Revelation 13:11-18, will provide seigniorage, that is moneyness, based upon their combined word, will and way.
The European Super Government will be a type of revived roman empire, and will feature a Fiscal Union, whose New Charlemagne, will rule with diktat, enforcing structural reforms, austerity measures, and debt servitude. The people will be amazed by the new seigniorage, that is the new moneyness, and follow after the Beast Regime of Neoauthoritarianism, Revelation 13:1-4, giving it their allegiance as held forth in Revelation 13:3-4. The vision of the sovereigns will be the basis for a collective Europe: totalitarian collectivism is the way of the future.
The coming President of the EU will be one knowledgeable with the scheme of framework agreements. He must be a fierce leader as he will have a whole spectrum of angry people to deal with. A leading individual for this position is Herman Van Rompuy, as he orchestrated the original Greek bailout, and as who the Daily Mail reports as saying, the age of the nation state is over and the idea that countries can stand alone is an ‘illusion’ and a ‘lie’.
The Apostle John describes the Beast Regime of Revelation 13:1-4, as rising from the sea of humanity, and as having seven heads, symbolic of mankind’s’ seven institutions, and ten horns, symbolic of the world’s ten regions. And Daniel the prophet presents the statue of the progression of world kingdoms in Daniel 2:31-45, where a Ten Toed Kingdom of iron diktat is mired with clay of democracy, to form a world wide government. Its political components are not compatible building materials, and will fail, introducing a fierce one world government seen in Daniel 7:7.
In 1974, three hundred of the world’s elite met as the Club of Rome. Their Clarion Call is for regional economic government, as a means to deal with the chaos stemming from the deleveraging and disinvesting out of the Milton Friedman Free To Choose floating currency regime. That call is clear, distinctive and ringing for the world federalists; and it carries an authoritarian imperative that will flow globally.
God is actively revealing the sovereignty of His Son who will introduce a new social order. The Bible reveals that Christians, have been set free, by the grace and truth of Jesus Christ. There are the church, the called out ones. These know the Sovereign Lord God, and have experience and identity out of him. Faithful Christians participate in Gods’ free mankind movement, by patiently enduring, where according to Revelation 2:27, God is destroying all forms of economic life and sovereign nation states such as Greece, to install his millennial kingdom on planet earth. Man’s 6,000 year existence of rule by human kings is coming to an end. The Apostle John said a day is as a thousand years and a thousand years is as a day, 2 Peter 3:8. This communicates that it has been two days since the Lord’s last appearance. Speaking of his body the church, the Lord said in John 2:19, that on the third day, He would raise it up. Believers are on the brink of being raised up to rule and reign with Christ for a thousand years, Revelation 5:9-10, completing a week of human experience on this planet, which introduces life in the Heavenly Jerusalem, Revelation 21:2-4. Wade E. Taylor writes of preparation for the third day relating that from Hosea 6:1-2, after a time of testing, He will raise us up, and we will live in His sight; all creation is groaning for this manifestation of His presence, that is parousia. In the coming age, there will be no double entry bookkeeping.
2) … European Federalists are moving to take one step closer to having a one world government. What is being said about the EU, can be said of the entire world. Why stop at the EU, when you can have a one world currency, a one world bank and economic system?
I recently wrote that the First Horseman of the Apocalypse, seen in Revelation 6:1-2, is effecting a global coup d etat, establishing the rule of state corporatism through the announcement of regional framework agreements. The end goal is the establishment of the Ten Toed Kingdom of regional economic government as foretold in Daniel 2:31-42.
Jeremy Kahn of Bloomberg writes of the leaders of the one world movement who are working for a political and economic union in the Eurozone.
Nicolas Berggruen, the Berggruen Institute, and his vision for European integration via the Council for the Future of Europe. “In Europe, all the experts say you need more integration, but the public doesn’t buy it yet,” says Nathan Gardels, a senior adviser to the Berggruen Institute. “So their job is really to resell the vision of an integrated Europe to the public.”
Berggruen is moving to save the West from sinking into chaos. He says the stock market swoons of 2011, the brinkmanship in Washington over the debt ceiling and the euro-zone debt debacle are symptoms of the same underlying problem. “What you really have is a deep, deep governance crisis in the West,” he says. To reduce the political paralysis that threatens the U.S. and Europe, the billionaire donated $100 million to create the Nicolas Berggruen Institute, with offices in Berlin, Los Angeles, New York and Washington.
In early September, the institute assembled a group called the Council for the Future of Europe. It includes former government leaders Gerhard Schroeder of Germany and Felipe Gonzalez of Spain, former European Commission President Jacques Delors, as well as economists Nouriel Roubini, Joseph Stiglitz and Mohamed El-Erian, the chief executive officer at Pacific Investment Management Co. Former British Prime Minister Tony Blair has served as an adviser. In public statements from Brussels, the group called for greater political integration within Europe. That includes the centralization of some fiscal policy, wider powers for the European Central Bank and European Financial Stability Facility to restructure the debt of private banks and the issuance of joint euro-area bonds to relieve the sovereign debt crisis.
2A) … Information on Gerhard Schroeder
Reuters reports Former German Leader Calls For United States Of Europe Former German chancellor Gerhard Schroeder on Sunday called for the creation of a United States of Europe, saying the the bloc needed a common government to avoid future economic crises. Schroeder, a Social Democrat who ran the country from 1998 to 2005, said in an interview with Der Spiegel that European Union leaders were wrong to expect the euro to drive the bloc on its own. “The current crisis makes it relentlessly clear that we cannot have a common currency zone without a common fiscal, economic and social policy,” Schroeder said. He added: “We will have to give up national sovereignty.”
“From the European Commission, we should make a government which would be supervised by the European Parliament. And that means the United States of Europe.”
Schroeder, who nurtured a close relationship with France during his leadership, welcomed an initiative launched by German Chancellor Angela Merkel and French President Nicolas Sarkozy to move toward a fiscal union in 2012. Their proposal, which would mean giving up sovereignty over budgetary policies with the aim to shore up the 17-nation currency union, has received a lukewarm response from other euro zone countries.
“Germany and France have sent a strong signal with the plan for a European economic government, if it is meant seriously and receives suitable authority such as a European finance minister,” Schroeder said.
“That is the correct way forward and the precondition for the correct funding, euro bonds,” he said. Germany, which enjoys lower costs for issuing debt than its single currency partners, has led resistance to joint euro-denominated bonds. “It is a huge bond market — speculators would no longer harbor hopes of splitting it up,” Schroeder said.
In order to initiate these changes, Schroeder said EU member states would have to return to the negotiating table and hammer out a new treaty to replace the one agreed in Lisbon that currently serves as the bloc’s institutional framework.
“In the crisis lies a real opportunity to achieve a political union in Europe,” he said. Schroeder, who says the EU can only respond to growing competition with the United States and Asia by being fully united, has long pointed to Britain as a hurdle to further EU integration. “Great Britain causes the greatest problems. (It is) not in the euro but the British nevertheless always want to participate when it comes to designing a European economic area,” he said. “That doesn’t work.”
The Global Viewpoint Network, and the Nicolas Berggruen Institute Press Release Gerhard Schröder: A Robust Vision of Europe for the 21st Century relates, My reform program, Agenda 2010, saw Germany respond to two challenges: globalization and demographic changes in German society.
We changed areas of the welfare system, in particular health care, pension and unemployment security. Also, Germany’s short-time working program played an important role, where the state now shares the costs with industry to keep skilled workers on the payroll during economic downturns, thus enabling them to scale up quickly when the economy picks up. We also made pensions and health insurance more flexible and placed greater emphasis on the responsibility of the individual in keeping costs down.
For the German welfare state, this step marked a paradigm shift that many believed would carve away hard-earned benefits. In fact, we were able to strengthen the system by making Germany globally competitive and ensuring that benefits remained affordable for our aging population. At the same time, we raised expenditures in education, research and innovation. This gave a further boost to German industrial base. Implementing these reforms was politically challenging — they cost me my job — but the result has shown it was worth it: Germany is now the best situated of all European economies. France, Italy, Great Britain and others now have to catch up with this reform process, but under much more difficult conditions.
With Germany’s strength, however, comes a political responsibility for Europe in overcoming the financial crisis and spurring growth in the global economy as a whole. Germany has to contribute its share to stabilizing Europe’s economy and its currency, the euro.
Though it could have acted with greater determination when the crisis first began to unfold, the current German administration is now doing this. The decisions to bolster the euro stability mechanism, and in particular the further moves toward a common economic government for the currency union, as agreed upon by France’s President Sarkozy and Chancellor Merkel, are a step in the right direction. What we need now is to move more decisively toward greater coordination of economic, fiscal and social policies in Europe.
This is the precondition for surmounting the currency crisis. To do this we also need a single European bond market with Eurobonds. Eurobonds will at some point become inevitable, but can only be introduced as part of a coordinated European policy that fosters the convergence of economic conditions. Otherwise the ground will merely be laid for the next crisis. In addition, we need an agenda for growth and employment across the whole of Europe to overcome the weak competitive position of states like Greece, Ireland and Spain.
Greater coordination among the 17 Eurozone countries would also reinforce the development of a “two-speed Europe.” The Eurozone as “core Europe” will see more rapid integration than countries, such as Great Britain, which have a more skeptical stance toward further integration. The most important thing is that this “core Europe” remains open to all countries willing to integrate, in particular Eastern European countries, such as Poland, which is not yet a member of the Eurozone.
The end goal of an accelerated process in “core Europe” will be the formation of the United States of Europe, a real political union to which member states will transfer national power. This United States of Europe must include the membership of Turkey and an association with Russia. Closer ties with Russia are important for Europe because they guarantee direct access to Russia’s enormous energy resources, thus contributing to global energy security. For this same reason, the cooperation between American and Russian energy companies in the Arctic should be welcomed. Peace and stability on the European continent can only come about with, and not against, Russia. The second most important country for Europe is Turkey.
The current developments in the Arab world have made this clear. There is now a chance for democracy and freedom to emerge from within the societies themselves. Turkey is the template for this in the region because it demonstrates that a non-fundamentalist form of Islam and a free society are compatible. This is also a reason why the European Union must accept Turkey as a member. It will be a bridge between Europe and the Islamic world and will greatly help to ensure security not only for Europe, but also for the United States.
Europe has arrived at a crossroads. Either Europe develops into a political union and becomes a truly global player, or it moves backward as a continent of nation states that have neither political nor economic clout on the global level. We saw a premonition of such a weak and disparate Europe during the UN climate change talks in Copenhagen in 2009. The EU nation states played only a marginal role while the emerging economies, led by China, made the key decisions.
For me, one thing is certain: We need a united, strong Europe. Such a Europe is also in the interests of the U.S. and would strengthen the transatlantic alliance. For we now know that today’s great global challenges, from financial instability to climate protection to the fight against terrorism to peace in the new Middle East, cannot be met by a single state in the world on its own. Germany, firmly embedded within European structures, must do its share and not follow the temptation to retreat into its own national ego.

The Guardian relates Spain’s future depends on a more relevant Europe, Felipe González Says
2C) … Information on Jacques Delors
Notre Europe relates Jacques Delors was president of the European Commission from 1985 to 1995. He had previously been minister of finance in France. In October 1996, Jacques Delors founded the research institute Notre Europe and is today its founding president.
Eurozine relates Jacques Delors is a French economist and politician. He became the eighth President of the European Commission in January 1985 and was the first person to and was the first person to serve three terms in that office. Since leaving the Commission, he has chaired the UNESCO Commission on Education for the Twenty-first Century, (1993-1996). He founded the Paris think tank Notre Europe in 1996 and remains one of its presidents, and in 2010 M. Delors supported the new initiative the Spinelli Group, which was founded to reinvigorate the move for federalism in the European Union.
Oxford University Press relates Jacques Delors (born in 1925) was a French economist and politician who is particularly noted for his fundamental role in promoting and shaping Europe’s single market in his capacity as the President of the European Commission (1985-1995). Following careers in both the private and public sectors in France, and a period as a MEP (1979-81), Delors took on the role of Commission President in January 1985. The European Community (EC) that greeted Delors was lacking enthusiasm and integration had stalled. Delors himself had immense faith in the value of the European project so was determined to restore ambition to the deflated EC. The single market was Delors’ principal project and it is for this success that he receives the most acclaim. In cooperation with Lord Cockfield (who was appointed to the Commission by Margaret Thatcher in 1985) a Commission White paper on the completion of the internal market was drafted and submitted to the Council in 1985, which detailed all the barriers to the completion of the single market in Europe. It presented a framework for action towards, and set a latest date for, the completion of the project. The work of these two men underpinned the creation of the Single European Act (SEA) (1986) and the single market itself. This bold venture was not Delors’ only success. He also lay the foundations for the final stages of Economic and Monetary Union (EMU) which was articulated in the Maastricht Treaty (1992) (also known as the Treaty on European Union (TEU)). For this, Delors and his commissioners are known as the ‘Founding Fathers of the Euro’. Furthermore, the Maastricht Treaty ushered in the transformation from EC to EU.
3) … A Christian’s perspective why governments make war.
3A) … Justin Raimondo in Antiwar writes Why Governments Make War
We start, therefore, with the question of who is doing the formulating. In “democratic” societies, we are told, “the people” are the ultimate policymakers, because they, in theory, hold their rulers accountable, not only at the polls but in the forum of public opinion and whatever parliamentary apparatus shares power with the executive. In practice, however, foreign policy is a completely separate realm, the domain of “experts” and specialists ensconced in think tanks – and, of course, the higher reaches of the councils of state.
This distancing of the citizenry from the policymaking process is accentuated, in the US, by the erosion of congressional power in the foreign policy realm. In the latter days of the American empire, policy is made almost entirely within the White House and the national security bureaucracy: Congress ceded its war-making powers long ago.
The conduct of America’s, or any country’s foreign policy, therefore, is the province of a very small group at the very top of the political pyramid: what might be called, for lack of a better group description, the ruling class, otherwise known as the “Establishment.” These are the chief actors, aside from freelancers like terrorist groups, various “liberation” movements, and George Soros on the world stage.
To answer the question posed at the beginning of this article, it is necessary to ask what motivates the Establishment: what causes them to come to a consensus and act? For libertarians, and for those of a realistic mindset, not always the same thing, the answer is simple: it’s all about power.
The real reason for the Libyan adventure was the necessity of averting a political crisis inside the Democratic coalition: Obama wanted a “team of rivals,” and that is what he got. Having ceded the foreign policy of his administration to the Clintons, the President had little choice but to let Hillary assert herself: Libya was her war, and Obama let her have it for purely internal political reasons.
This commonality is demonstrated by the fact that democracies are just as likely to engage in imperialistic wars as are dictatorships of one sort or another: our current policy of endless war demonstrates this rule rather dramatically, and history confirms it. Britain, by far the most liberal and democratic empire that ever existed, was simultaneously the greatest aggressor, relentlessly expanding the Empire to nearly every continent, abolishing slavery and enslaving millions.
The politicians, in short, are in it to stay in it: they are in the business of acquiring and keeping power, and that is what motivates them in all matters foreign and domestic.
A libertarian theory of foreign affairs starts with the axiom that those in power wish to remain in power: all else follows from this basic proposition. It’s the “all else,” however, that is the important part, and not a mere detail to be filled in later. Because political and policy decisions are made by real people, not impersonal “forces” and floating abstractions, the specific context in which these decisions are made is key to understanding the course of events. It is not enough to say that there is some Vast Conspiracy – say, the Illuminati, the Bilderbergers, or the Elders of Fandom – operating behind the scenes and manipulating the “crisis” of the moment to its own advantage. It is necessary to cite specifics, i.e. evidence establishing causal connections between specific individuals, certain policy outcomes, and benefits accrued.
This is why journalism is such an important branch of the literary arts, and why its decline is such a blow to the cause of peace and liberty. Without specifics, and unarmed with facts, neither the professional analyst nor the interested citizen can get a clue as to what is going on with the biggest – and most dangerous – power on the planet. That’s why Antiwar.com is such an important tool in the fight against interventionism and militarism: because we give you the news they don’t want you to know about.
We cannot rest, because the tendency of governments to constantly seek opportunities to expand their power – including across national borders – is inherent and constant. It can be neither eradicated, nor ignored: it has to be constantly watched – and challenged. That’s why we’re here, and that’s why we must continue to be here for as long as governments exist.
3B) … Leaders of sovereign authority make war for more power so as to expand and maintain their empire.
This was the case going back to the time when Chedorlaomer captured and looted Sodom and Gomorrah, and took the people of the cities into captivity, including Abraham’s nephew Lot, who was living there with his wife and two daughters. Abraham’s response was swift and decisive; he led 318 servants of his household into battle, defeated Chedorlaomer’s military coalition forces and rescued Lot and his family, Genesis 14:1-16. This was ordained and planned by God. A questioning mind asks, what king of Salem, that is Jerusalem, did Abraham meet with after he rescued Lot? Answer, Melchizedek, Genesis 14:18-20.
In article We Are Witnessing The Beginning Of The End Of Democracy In Europe As God Is Destroying National Sovereignty And Personal Sovereignty So As To Reveal The Sovereignty Of His Son Jesus Christ
I write, The prophet Daniel in Daniel 2: 31-43 foretold that great leaders would arise as history unfolds. These have included Nebuchadnezzar ruling Babylon; Cyrus and Cyrus and Darius ruling Merdo Persia; Charlemagne ruling Rome; Tony Blair ruling Great Britain, Angela Merkel ruling the EU, and George Bush, The Decider, ruling America with Unilateral Authority. Soon ten kings will come to rule, each in his own regional power base. The statue of kingdoms seen in Daniel 2:31-43 communicates that God has ordained two iron kingdoms, these are the combine of the UK and Europe, and US Dollar Hegemony. And God has ordained the Beast Regime, the Ten Toed Kingdom of Regional Economic Government, to rule mankind. The coming President of the EU will be one knowledgeable with the scheme of framework agreements. He must be a fierce leader as he will have a whole spectrum of angry people o deal with. A leading individual for this position is Herman Van Rompuy, as he orchestrated the original Greek bailout, and as who the Daily Mail reports as saying, the age of the nation state is over and the idea that countries can stand alone is an ‘illusion’ and a ‘lie’
Eventually, the Beast Regime, being mired in the clay of democracy and the iron of diktat, will crumble. The Sovereign will gain the upper hand, and install a one world government, as foretold in Daniel 7:7, with one world bank, and provide global seigniorage as presented in Revelation 13:5-18.
Libertarianism, with its precept of personal sovereignty is now a bankrupt philosophy, as God is effecting his Sovereignty, by destroying nations so as to reveal the sovereignty of his Son, as seen in Revelation 2:27. Sovereign leaders will be replacing sovereign individuals. Freedom and choice are illusions on the Neoauthoritarian desert of the Real. Angela Merkel and Nicolas Sarkozy are ambassadors of regional economic government, as Kathimerini reports Merkel, Sarkozy and Papandreou will hold talks with Papandreou expected to outline plans for privatisation and further spending cuts. They are laying down the rule of diktat in the EU.
The Beast Regime of Neoauthoritarianism, foretold in Revelation 13:1.4, is built upon many; it is fathered by the 300 luminaries of the Club of Rome, whose 1974 Call is clarion, compelling, and comes with authoritarian imperative for regional economic government, as an answer to the chaos coming from unwinding carry trades and deleveraging stocks, as well as the failure of sovereign debt
A Super European Government is coming. Between The Hedges relates Sueddeutsche Zeitung reports Italy is prepared to give up “all sovereignties necessary” to allow the creation of a European central government,” citing Foreign Minister Franco Frattini. The European Union’s existing contracts should be extended or changed if necessary to incorporate a “stabilizing finance mechanism,” according to the report. The ECB should gain a “political role,” while remaining an independent institution, Frattini said.
Because of the severity of a soon coming sovereign debt and banking collapse, Eurozone Leaders will waive national sovereignty, and announce regional framework agreements. One Leader, the Sovereign, will arise to speak for and to the Eurozone; and together with his partner, the Seignior, they will provide seigniorage, that is moneyness, based upon their combined word, will and way.
The European Super Government will be a type of revived roman empire, and will feature a Fiscal Union, whose Iron Chancellor, will rule with diktat, enforcing structural reforms, austerity measuyrs, and debt servitude. The people will be amazed by the new seigniorage, that is the new moneyness, and follow after the Beast Regime of Neoauthoritarianism, giving it their allegiance as held forth in Revelation 13:3-4.
3C … What do religions and philosophy provide?
The ultimate goal of Buddhism, is Nirvāṇa, a state of absence of desire and craving.
The Khazar’s are occupying Zion and practice Zionism.
The Austrian Economists, profess personal sovereignty, and seek the limitation of government intervention, and seek Freedom so as to use personal property as they see fit to practice Free Enterprise.
The christian has a white stone, Revelation 2:17, and as Peter Anderson relates Let us be encouraged by the fact that in our hand we hold an admission ticket to Heaven, and an admission ticket into His presence at this very moment. We hold an acquittal that was personalized with a name that identifies us uniquely.
