  • Napoleon Reborn: We Need A “European Empire” To Challenge US And China, French Minister Says
    by Tyler Durden, https://www.zerohedge.com/
    As increasingly unpopular French President Emmanuel Macron’s calls for creating a “Real European Army” have been met with ridicule from President Trump, who has insisted that Macron should first try meeting France’s NATO commitments…

    … Another senior French official upped the aggressive rhetoric in an interview published on Monday, saying that Europe shouldn’t be afraid of using its power to become “a peaceful empire” to help it stand up to China and the US. French Finance Minister Bruno Le Maire made the comments in an interview with Germay’s Handelsblatt, which noted that Germany remains largely opposed to such a Continent-wide military alliance.

    To be sure, Le Maire insisted that “I am using this phrase because, in tomorrow’s world, it’s going to be all about power…technological power, economic, financial, monetary, cultural power – all will be decisive. Europe cannot be shy any longer about using its power.”

    Le Maire also hinted that there will be “decisions made” about a Continent-wide fighting force during an upcoming EU summit.

    “We have talked about it for a long time. Now it’s time for decisions. And there will be decisions made on December 4, 
    at the next meeting of the economy and finance ministers. I cannot imagine anything else.”


    Because the people of Europe have had enough of the “babble from Brussels.”

    “Everybody knows it takes guts to stand in the way of Donald Trump’s administration,” 
    Le Maire said. “The people of Europe have had enough of the babble from Brussels. They want to see action.”

One British Company Wants To Implant Microchips Into “Hundreds Of Thousands” Of Global Workers

https://www.biblegateway.com/passage/?search=Revelation+13%3A16-18&version=NKJV

  • One British Company Wants To Implant Microchips Into “Hundreds Of Thousands” Of Global Workers
    by , http://endoftheamericandream.com/
    It is really happening.  At one time, the idea that large numbers of people would willingly allow themselves to have microchips implanted into their hands seemed a bit crazy, but now it has become a reality.  Thousands of tech enthusiasts all across Europe have already had microchips implanted, and now a Swedish company is working with very large global employers to implement this on the corporate level.  In fact, Biohax recently told one of the biggest newspapers in the UK that they have been talking with a “major financial services firm” that has  “hundreds of thousands of employees”…:


    Biohax, a Swedish company that provides human chip implants, told the Telegraph it was in talks with a number of UK legal and financial firms to implant staff with the devices.

    One prospective client, which cannot be named, is a major financial services firm with “hundreds of thousands of employees.”

    For security-obsessed corporations, this sort of technology can appear to have a lot of upside.  If all of your employees are chipped, you will always know where they are, and you will always know who has access to sensitive areas or sensitive information.

    According to a top official from Biohax, the procedure to implant a chip takes “about two seconds”, and it is usually implanted in the hand…:

    A syringe is used to place the chip in an area between the thumb and forefinger, according to the report. Osterlund said the procedure is similar to ear piercing and takes “about two seconds.” The microchips operate via “near field communication” technology, similar to what is used by no-contact bank cards.

    “In a company with 200,000 employees, you can offer this as an opt-in,”
     Osterlund told the Telegraph.


    Right now, many companies use security badges, and I once worked in a building that required a security badge.

Italy ‘Will WIN’ Against EU: Economist Admits Budget Crisis Could UNRAVEL Eurozone

  • Italy ‘Will WIN’ Against EU: Economist Admits Budget Crisis Could UNRAVEL Eurozone
    by OLI SMITH, https://www.express.co.uk/ , 13 Nov 2018
    A LEADING economic analyst has predicted that Italy will triumph over the European Union, as the budget standoff between the two sides comes to a head tomorrow.

    There are mounting fears around the future of the EU, ahead of tomorrow’s Brussels-imposed deadline for Italy to submit a revised budget. The European Commission rejected Italy’s 2019 budget last month, claiming it violated a commitment to lower the country’s deficit. However, according to reports, Italy looks likely to submit a very similar budget, which could spark an unprecedented crisis for the EU.

    Leading economist Daniel Lacalle told CNBC’s Squawk Box that Italy will “win” in its battle with the EU – and this could doom the future of the bloc. Mr Lacalle said: “The Italian budget is a problem for the eurozone. It creates a contagion effect with other economies.

Merkel BACKS Macron: German Leader Demands EU ARMY Risking Further Anger from Trump

  • Merkel BACKS Macron: German Leader Demands EU ARMY Risking Further Anger from Trump
    by ALICE SCARSI, https://www.express.co.uk/
    ANGELA Merkel has depicted the “future of Europe” in her keynote speech to the European Parliament plenary session, demanding member states step up development of the EU Army.

    In a wide-ranging speech she also urged EU state members who are not abiding to EU rules to “share the responsibility” brought by immigration and the crises which hit the bloc in the past months. But if was her comments on the armed force which drew the biggest response. It led to jeering from some MEPs and comes minutes after Donald Trump attacked Emmanuel Macron for calling for an EU Army last week. Ms Merkel said: “Jean Claude Juncker some years ago said a common European Army would show the world there will never again be a war in Europe.

    “I’m not saying anything about Nato of course not. We can be a good supplement to Nato. “It would be a lot easier to cooperate if we have more than 160 weapons systems and the US only has 50 or 60. We realise that all the different instances have training and education. If we could pull this together we can work together with Nato.”

EU Under ‘an ILLUSION’: Brussels ‘NOT Prepared’ for Financial Fallout of Italy Budget

  • A major portion of Italian debt is held by French and German banks. If Italy declares bankruptcy, the entire European financial system will likely collapse. Is this the Illluminist Order Out of Chaos plan? Ie. A Catastrophic European wide collapse to usher in their 10 Horn Beast Revived Roman Empire. We will have to let events unfold to know for certain.
  • EU Under ‘an ILLUSION’: Brussels ‘NOT Prepared’ for Financial Fallout of Italy Budget
    by LEVI WINCHESTER, https://www.express.co.uk/
    THE European Union is not prepared for the event of bankruptcy in Italy and is under an “illusion” the bloc can force Rome to comply by Brussels’ rules, according to the President of the Ifo Institute for Economic Research.

    Clemens Fuest described the EU as being ill-equipped to deal with financial chaos in Italy, as he claimed no country can afford a national debt of more than 130 percent of gross domestic product in economic stagnation. He went on to warn a financial market crisis could trigger “the most serious disputes in the Eurozone” in an interview with t-online.de in Munich. Mr Fuest said: “The biggest risk in the short term is a capital market panic that can quickly lead to bankruptcy.”

    Italy has been at loggerheads with the EU over the Italian government’s fiscal plans, which include a deficit budget of 2.4 percent of GDP for 2019. EU bosses have threatened to slap the Mediterranean country with sanctions unless it follows the bloc’s fiscal rules in an unprecedented move which could see Rome slapped with a fine of £3billon (€3.4billion).

‘Issue of Sovereignty’: Macron Wants EU to Be Less Dependent on Dollar

  • ‘Issue of Sovereignty’: Macron Wants EU to Be Less Dependent on Dollar
    by https://sputniknews.com/
    In an exclusive interview with CNN, French President Emmanuel Macron admitted that the European nations have so far failed to provide a viable alternative to the US dollar, and are excessively dependent on the American currency.

    French President Emmanuel Macron told CNN’s Fareed Zakaria that currently Europe didn’t have ‘a clear alternative’ to the dollar because “de-facto there is an international extraterritoriality of the dollar due to its strength”.

    “Until now, we fail to make the euro as strong as the dollar. We made a great job during the past years but it’s not yet sufficient,” he said, when asked whether the EU will come up with a response to the US withdrawal from the Iran nuclear deal in terms of currency.

French Minister Wants EU to Become ‘Empire’

Revelation 13 New King James Version (NKJV) –
The Beast from the Sea: 13 Then I[a] stood on the sand of the sea. And I saw a beast rising up out of the sea, having seven heads and ten horns,[b] and on his horns ten crowns, and on his heads a blasphemous name. 2 Now the beast which I saw was like a leopard, his feet were like the feet of a bear, and his mouth like the mouth of a lion. The dragon gave him his power, his throne, and great authority.

  • French Minister Wants EU to Become ‘Empire’
    by https://sputniknews.com/
    Earlier, French President Emmanuel Macron called for creation of a “real European army,” citing threats that EU institutions have been facing lately. He also noted that Europe must be protected against China, Russia and even the US.

    French Finance Minister Bruno La Maire voiced an unexpected idea during his interview with the German media outlet Handelsblatt; he suggested that the EU should become a ‘peaceful empire’ based on the principle of the rule of law. He added that Europe will be different from other ’empires’, such as the US or China.

    “Europe should no longer fear utilizing its power and be an empire of peace,” he said.

    La Maire stressed that “power” will be the decisive force in the world of the future. He further elaborated that he meant economic, financial, monetary, and cultural power, as well as the power of technological advancement.

    During the course of the interview, the French cabinet minister also urged Europe to stand up to “illegitimate” US sanctions against Iran, and promised that the recently created special purpose entity will help the EU to overcome them.

    “We should tell the US loud and clear: ‘We are a sovereign continent and we decide ourselves with whom we will have trade’,” La Maire said.

    Previously, French President Emmanuel Macron came up with the idea to create a “real European army.” He stressed that the EU can no longer count on US protection, citing Washington’s recent decision to quit the Intermediate-Range Nuclear Forces Treaty. Macron added that Europe must protect itself from countries like China, Russia and “even the US.”

Italy Budget Crisis: Rome DISMISSES Brussels Ultimatum And Warns EU ‘Expect SAME Plans’

  • Italy Budget Crisis: Rome DISMISSES Brussels Ultimatum And Warns EU ‘Expect SAME Plans’
    by HARVEY GAVIN, https://www.express.co.uk/
    ITALY says it will defy an ultimatum by Brussels and refuse to back down over its controversial budget proposals as an Italian politician likened scare tactics used by the EU to ‘Project Fear’ in the Brexit referendum.

    European Union bosses have threatened to sanction the Mediterranean country unless it falls into line and follows the bloc’s fiscal rules in an unprecedented move which could see Rome slapped with a fine of £3billon (€3.4billion). But Italy’s populist government remains defiant and has rejected demands to submit a revised budget by Tuesday. Guglielmo Picchi, a politician in the right-wing League party, told the Sunday Times: “On Tuesday they will expect a letter from us – the letter from us will say it’s still the same budget.”

    The ruling coalition in Rome – made up of the League and populist 5-Star Movement – is planning on increasing borrowing to help fund its costly election promises, including a lowering of the retirement age and an increase in welfare.

Macron Urges World Leaders to ‘Fight for Peace’ on WWI Centenary

http://www.biblegateway.com/passage/?search=Revelation+6%3A2&version=NKJV

  • Al Jazeera English Published on Nov 11, 2018
    French President Emmanuel Macron has urged dozens of world leaders marking a century since the end of World War I to come together in a”fight for peace”. Addressing about 70 leaders in Paris, including US President Donald Trump and Russian President Vladimir Putin, he urged world leaders to reject nationalism, describing it as a “betrayal of patriotism”.
  • Macron preaches peace to world leaders gathered for WWI centenary
    by Pol O Gradaigh, http://www.dpa-international.com/
    Paris (dpa) – French President Emmanuel Macron on Sunday made an appeal for peace and cooperation to some 65 world leaders gathered in Paris to mark the centenary of the armistice that ended World War I.

    Warning of “ancient demons” and new ideologies that were threatening peace and co-existence, Macron urged his guests to act together to “banish the spectres of climate change, poverty, hunger, illness, all the inequalities and every ignorance.”

    German Chancellor Angela Merkel, Russian President Vladimir Putin, Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan and US President Donald Trump were among those assembled at the foot of the Arc de Triomphe for the solemn ceremony.

    Macron and his wife, Brigitte; Merkel; and King Mohammed VI of Morocco walked side by side up the Champs-Elysees in the rain as bells rang out across Paris to mark the moment at 11 am on November 11, 1918 when the guns fell silent on the Western Front.

    Trump and Putin arrived separately shortly afterwards. Minutes earlier, a topless protester had vaulted barriers on the Champs-Elysee and run towards the US leader’s cortege before a gendarme caught up with her and wrestled her away.

World Leaders Gather in Paris for Peace Conference

Macron said he wanted to rule like a Roman god ‘Jupiter’, above the political fray.

http://www.biblegateway.com/passage/?search=Revelation+6%3A2&version=NKJV

  • The Satanic WW3 looks less and less likely. Trump has messed up their plans.
  • World Leaders Gather in Paris for Peace Conference
    by https://www.france24.com/en/
    Dozens of world leaders met in the French capital on Sunday for the opening of the inaugural Paris Peace Forum, hosted by French President Emmanuel Macron.

    German Chancellor Angela Merkel made an impassioned plea for world peace and cooperation 100 years after Germany‘s defeat in World War I, saying “we must not simply stand by and watch” as more conflicts continue to unfold around the world. Merkel denounced the “national vaingloriousness and military arrogance” that led to the “senseless bloodshed” of two world wars. She warned against taking peace for granted, saying: “We have to work for it.”

    In a veiled dig at US President Donald Trump‘s America-first policies and skepticism toward multilateral cooperation, Merkel warned that “lack of communication and unwillingness to compromise” can have deadly consequences. “The concern I have is that blinkered nationalist views may gain ground once again,’ she said.

    UN Secretary-General Antonio Guterres also warned of “parallels” between the present day and the unstable and dangerous 1930s as he marked the centenary of World War I in a speech in Paris. “As I see it, several elements today have many parallels with both the start of the twentieth century and the 1930s, giving us grounds to fear that an unpredictable chain of events could ensue,” Guterres said at the Paris Peace Forum.

    Trump chose not to attend the forum, instead delivering Veterans Day remarks at the SuresnesAmerican Cemetery and Memorial in the suburbs of Paris. More than 1,500 Americans who died during the war are buried there. Earlier Sunday, some 70 world leaders gathered on the Champs-Élysées to mark the centenary of the signing of the Armistice that ended World War I.
