This first article is definitely worth reading in full:
A friend of mine who raises great sums of money for Christian causes called the events of the past few days, “a catastrophe.” You have watched your retirement accounts and savings melt away as the stock market dives. Foreclosed homes dot our streets with and “For Sale” signs advertise the death of dreams. Financial institutions all over the world teeter on the brink of collapse. Wall Street wrings its hands in despair. Banks have failed. Credit lines that keep businesses running are drying up. General Motors may be bankrupt in a year. And soon the ripple effects will produce huge layoffs and job losses. Blame the government for its stupidity and corruption. Blame our greedy selves. But these are frightening times, and no one knows what to do.
The President of France has come up with a very creative way of solving the European debt crisis. On Sunday, a piece authored by French President Francois Hollande suggested that the ultimate solution to the problems currently plaguing Europe would be for every member of the eurozone to transfer all of their sovereignty to a newly created federal government.
In other words, it would essentially be a “United States of Europe”. This federal government would have a prime minister, a parliament, a federal budget and a federal treasury. Presumably, the current national governments in Europe would continue to function much like state governments in the U.S. do. In the end, there may be some benefits to such a union – particularly for the weaker members of the eurozone. But at what cost would those benefits come?
When I first learned that French President Francois Hollande had proposed that the members of the eurozone should create their own version of a federal government, I was quite stunned. But I shouldn’t have been surprised. For the global elite, the answer to just about any problem is more centralization. The following comes from a Bloomberg article that was posted on Sunday…
French President Francois Hollande said that the 19 countries using the euro need their own government complete with a budget and parliament to cooperate better and overcome the Greek crisis.
“Circumstances are leading us to accelerate,” Hollande said in an opinion piece published by the Journal du Dimanche on Sunday. “What threatens us is not too much Europe, but a lack of it.”
So precisely what would “more Europe” look like?
Hollande envisions a central government that has both a parliament and a federal budget…
In addition, this eurozone government would have its own prime minister. In essence, he would be the European version of the president of the United States. The following comes from the Independent…
There would be a eurozone government with its own prime minister, the officials said. This government would have its own budget – separate from the EU budget – to aid and invest in more fragile countries, It would try to harmonise corporation and pay-roll taxes to ensure fair competition in the eurozone.
Of course Hollande is not the only one calling for more centralization. Last month, European Central Bank President Mario Draghi, European Commission President Jean-Claude Juncker and Eurogroup President Jeroen Dijsselbloem proposed a plan that would create a shared European treasury…
However, what is important is the fact that this is where the European elite plan to take Europe. And when the next great European financial crisis erupts, these proposals will be offered as the “solutions” necessary to end the crisis.
There will be more ups and downs, but we are almost there.
A time of great chaos is coming to Europe, and the eurozone will be deeply shaken.
But whether or not there is a break up of the eurozone in the short-term, in the long-term the goal of the European elite is even more integration and even more centralization.
So even though there will be significant bumps in the road, I fully expect to see the “United States of Europe” that French President Francois Hollande has proposed.
Governments Worldwide Will (Begin) Crash the First Week of October ... According to 2 Financial Forecasters Washington's Blog
But to be clear, both believe that the domino collapse will eventually hit the U.S., and America will end up defaulting on its debts – and falling into financial crisis – as well.
The most worrying sign for European leaders is that public opinion and domestic politics are pulling them increasingly in opposing directions - not just between Greece and Germany, the biggest debtor and the biggest creditor, but almost everywhere.
Germans, Finns, Dutch, Balts and Slovaks no longer want taxpayers' money to go to bail out Greeks, while the French, Italians and Greeks feel the euro zone is all about austerity and punishment and lacks solidarity and economic stimulus.
A senior EU official involved in brokering the compromise, who spoke on condition of anonymity, said there was now a "20, maybe 30 percent chance of success".
"When I look at the next two to three years, the next three months, I see only black clouds," the official said. "All we succeeded in doing was to avoid a chaotic Grexit."
Problems are likely to resurface in late August or September when it comes to concluding the detailed negotiations on a three-year bailout program. By then Greece's economy may have gone further off the rails and Greeks may be heading for early elections.
Former U.S. General Calls for Rounding Up and Interning “Radicalized” and “Disloyal” Americans - Freedom Outpost
Thank your lucky stars that the former Supreme Allied Commander For Europe and one-time U.S. Presidential candidate Wesley Clark never made it to the highest office in the land. Because if he had, there is a distinct possibility that he would have used our military to take the so-called domestic war on terror to a level not seen since World War II.
Clark is, in essence, advocating a life sentence for people who have not committed a crime but merely engaged in speech — often reprehensible, yet constitutionally protected — the government considers radical and in opposition to its foreign p
No matter what topic the training session concerns, every DHS sponsored course I have attended over the past few years never fails to branch off into warnings about potential domestic terrorists in the community. While this may sound like a valid officer and community safety issue, you may be disturbed to learn how our Federal government describes a typical domestic terrorist.
Scores of seemingly innocuous activities are now red flags for the federal government. If you home school your child, discuss big government policies in a negative light, or simply declare the U.S. Constitution as the law of the land, you are a threat.
As we've noted previously, the Jade Helm 15 military exercises taking place over the next couple of months across the United States include training for the rounding up of dissidents and subversives. There is a significant amount of evidence and insider information indicative of a scenario that includes Gestapo-style tactics like secret arrests, interrogations, and detentions. In fact, a Texas Ranger recently dropped a bombshell and said that train cars with shackles were part of this summer's military training.
What would you call a person who casually discusses, over a nice crunchy salad, their personal role in the systematic murder and dismemberment of innocent children so that their little baby body parts might be most effectively marketed and fed to others?
The flagrant, obscene evil so nonchalantly addressed by the salad crunching demonic Ms. Nucatola is legal and legitimate in America because "We the People" have come to believe that we have the power to define that which is lawful apart from the unbreakable Law of God.
"We the People" actually believe that wehave the power to determine what is right, wrong, lawful, and lawless.
In this delusional, prideful, and arrogant state, we've severed the meaning of all of our most cherished concepts and virtues from explicit connection and subjugation to Christ. In doing so, we've consigned these things and all that they touch to death.
What we are seeing unfurl all around us is the natural consequence of our long-held All-American denial of God's Nature as the exclusive and necessary source of all true liberty, freedom, justice, and law. When we decided that His Nature as revealed in His Word was not to be our standard in the realms of civil government and politics, we resigned ourselves to the fate that we are experiencing now. When we refused to strive for Christ's rule over us politically, we consigned ourselves to be ruled over by tyrannical, godless men.
So as we watch the Big Gay Wave continue to roll (see: A Tale of Two (Gay American) Cities) and we witness the likes of Ms. Nucatola happily chatting away about her "legally" protected, "legitimate" business of providing "health care" by way of the systematic murder of babies for convenience and profit, understand this: This is what Christ-mocking perversions of law, liberty and freedom always produce. And it will only get worse from here, until and unless we repent and submit to Christ as King in practice.
