World War 3 WARNING? Russia, US and France Launch Nuclear-Capable Missiles HOURS APART

  • World War 3 WARNING: Russia, US and France Launch Nuclear-Capable Missiles HOURS APART
    by ATHENA CHRYSANTHOU, https://www.express.co.uk/
    RUSSIA, the United States and France have test-launched nuclear-capable missiles within hours of one another as fears rise of a return to a Cold War-era arms race amid the abandonment of the Intermediate-Range Nuclear Forces (INF) Treaty.

    The French military announced Tuesday its air force conducted a rare test Monday of the nuclear-capable medium-range air-to-surface missile (ASMP). The US then followed with firing a nuclear-capable Minuteman III intercontinental ballistic missile on Tuesday night. Shortly after, Russian armed forces fired a nuclear-capable RS-24 Yars ICBM.

    None of the tests were thought to be equipped with nuclear warheads and were likely scheduled ahead of the INF treaty breakdown. In a press release the French Ministry of Defense said the demonstration of the ASMP was “successful”.

Renewing Their Vows: France and Germany Sign ‘Treaty of Aachen’

  • Renewing Their Vows: France and Germany Sign ‘Treaty of Aachen’
    by Catherine Nicholson, https://www.france24.com/en/
    Strasbourg is a particularly apt place for discussing this week’s topic, as it lies on the Franco-German border, in a region that’s changed hands between France and Germany multiple times in its history – most recently annexation by Nazi Germany, then liberation after WWII. Earlier this week, President Macron and Chancellor Merkel signed off on a new version of the so-called Élysée Treaty, which has been the basis for 56 years of post-war co-operation. We ask what this new document is all about.

The Real ‘Bombshell’: France and Germany Unite!

AACHEN, GERMANY – JANUARY 22: German Chancellor Angela Merkel and French President Emmanuel Macron sign the Aachen Treaty on January 22, 2019 in Aachen, Germany. The treaty is meant to deepen cooperation between the countries as a means to also strengthen the European Union. It comes 56 years to the day after then German Chancellor Konrad Adenauer and French President Charles de Gaulle signed the Elysee Treaty, or Joint Declaration of Franco-German Friendship.

  • The Real ‘Bombshell’: France and Germany Unite!
    by STEPHEN FLURRY, https://www.thetrumpet.com/
    American journalists love to report “bombshells.” Bombshell news about a celebrity. Bombshell news about a “miracle cure.” Bombshell news about President Donald Trump. But there was a much bigger bombshell on January 22, and most journalists didn’t even notice that it had gone off!

    The biggest bombshell of January was the Aachen Treaty. The Times of London reported that the January 22 treaty includes “shared defense, foreign and economic policies in an unprecedented ‘twinning’ pact regarded as a prototype for the future of the European Union.”

    In some of the most important aspects of national power, France is bolting itself to Germany. And people think that other EU nations should do the same. The Times wrote that the treaty enables Germany and France “to present a united diplomatic front and act jointly in peacekeeping missions. … Some officials regard these experiments as a petri dish for the integration of the EU.”

    This is a real bombshell! Europe’s second-most powerful nation is giving its power over to Europe’s most powerful nation, and this might be just the beginning.

    The Aachen Treaty does not shy away from the issue of military cooperation. After signing the treaty, German Chancellor Angela Merkel said its provisions will build a “common military culture” between France and Germany and “contribute to the creation of a European army.” French President Emmanuel Macron said, “[A]uthoritarian powers are emerging everywhere … let’s build a real European army to protect ourselves and have a real foreign policy.”

    The treaty also contains a mutual defense clause. If either France or Germany is attacked, the other nation will come to its defense. The nato alliance, which includes the United States, already provides these two nations with guaranteed defense in case of attack. So why are they making an independent agreement about it? The treaty indicates that these two countries are already looking past nato. If America pulls out of nato or the agreement otherwise falls apart, Europe will have to protect itself without American firepower.

    My father’s cover article for the February 2019 Trumpet is “France Rejects America—and Empowers Germany!” In November and December 2018, he gave three Key of Davidprograms on the subject. The series was sparked by Macron’s comments in November, when he called for a real European army, praised a Nazi collaborator from World War ii, and publicly rebuked Donald Trump as not being a true patriot. At the same time, French Finance Minister Bruno Le Maire called for a European “empire” and urged Germany to take the lead. Merkel joined the chorus and called for a “real, true European army.” Then Macron visited Berlin and told the German parliament, “France loves Germany.”

Franco-Germany Treaty Likely to Boost Multi-Speed EU Integration, Leaving Italy Behind

  • Franco-Germany Treaty Likely to Boost Multi-Speed EU Integration, Leaving Italy Behind
    by http://dailyfinland.fi/
    The new treaty signed by France and Germany on Tuesday may give a key boost to the multi-speed integration of Europe, Italian analysts said. However, they warned that the treaty would risk leaving behind other major partners, including Italy, which are currently led by populist forces.

    The Treaty of Aachen, signed by Angela Merkel and Emmanuel Macron on Jan. 22, renews a friendship sealed with the signature of the famous Elysee Treaty in 1963. The new 16-page agreement covers several areas of bilateral cooperation, including foreign policy, defense, trade, research, climate and energy.

    “Seen from the EU’s perspective, the treaty is a relevant event,” Federico Niglia, international relations and European history professor with the LUISS University in Rome, told Xinhua. “All stages of the so-called Franco-German axis have always served as a metronome for the European integration process.”
    –   
    Closer Franco-German cooperation has also been consistent with the path of enhanced cooperation laid down by the 2007 EU Treaty of Lisbon, which opened the possibility of a multi-speed (or multi-tier) Europe, meaning different EU countries integrating at different levels and pace.
    –   
    Yet, the analyst noted that this renewed friendship between the two major countries of Europe also comes at a time when the EU appears to be “particularly divided.” “The fact that the treaty was signed by two non-populist governments a few months before the elections to renew the European Parliament (in May) means that it would also take on an anti-populist value,” Niglia explained.
    –   
    Michele Nones, scientific advisor at the Rome-based Institute for International Affairs (IAI) and European affairs advisor at the Italian Ministry of Defense, agreed that the new treaty was a good signal for the EU. “It is a sign of strengthening integration at the core of the European process, which has always been represented by Franco-German cooperation,” Nones told Xinhua.
    –   
    Nonetheless, both analysts highlighted that this “core” now comprised only two of the 27 EU member states (considering the forthcoming Brexit). “This so-called inner circle, which could speed up the overall integration process, is for now limited to France and Germany, which might not be seen as positive,” Nones stressed.

The dragon gave him his power, his throne, and great authority.

France and Germany: “We Are Committed to the Emergence of a European Army” — Coalition of 10 Nation Endtimes Empire is Here!

  • France and Germany: “We Are Committed to the Emergence of a European Army”
    by Soeren Kern, https://www.gatestoneinstitute.org/
    * “Populism and nationalism are increasing in all our countries. For the first time, a country — Great Britain — is leaving the European Union. Worldwide, multilateralism is under pressure….” – German Chancellor Angela Merkel.

    * “Converging this much with Germany is an abandonment of sovereignty — a betrayal. If we had not alerted the public, this text would have been signed on the sly. The text provides in particular for the need to legislate in the event of obstacles to Franco-German cooperation…. I do not want more convergence with Berlin, be it in social or security matters, or in closer consultation in the UN Security Council.” – Marine Le Pen, Le Temps.

    * “Emmanuel Macron is calling for a grand debate to involve citizens in the public life of our country. At the same time, however, the President of the Republic negotiated a treaty on the sly even though it concerns conditions essential to the exercise of our national sovereignty. Neither the French people, nor the Parliament, nor the Constitutional Council were consulted… For many reasons, this treaty undermines our national sovereignty.” – Nicolas Dupont-Aignan, leader of the party Debout La France! (Stand Up, France!).

    French President Emmanuel Macron and German Chancellor Angela Merkel have signed a new Franco-German friendship treaty aimed at reinvigorating the European Union, which has been buffeted by the European debt crisis, mass migration and Brexit — as well as innumerable conflicting interests and priorities among its 28 member states.

    France and Germany, the self-appointed guardians of European integration, have said that the new treaty is a response to the growing influence of populists in Austria, Britain, France, Italy, Hungary, Poland and other European countries who are seeking to slow, and even reverse, European integration by recouping national sovereignty from the European Union and transferring those powers back to national capitals.

    The continental showdown, which threatens to split the European Union down the middle between Eurosceptic nationalists and Europhile globalists, will heat up in coming weeks, ahead of elections for the European Parliament in late May 2019.

‘Puppet of Big Banks’: French Hit Back at Macron’s ‘I’m One of You’ Overture

  • ‘Puppet of Big Banks’: French Hit Back at Macron’s ‘I’m One of You’ Overture
    by https://www.rt.com/
    As France braced for the 11th week of the Yellow Vest protests, President Emmanuel Macron said that he is not a ‘man of the elite’ as his critics claim. Yet, people told RT he can’t relate to the struggles of ordinary citizens.

    In an apparent effort to brush aside the label ‘president of the rich’, President Macron decided to reaffirm that he is a ‘man of the people’. “I’m not an heir,” the president said on Thursday.

    If I had been born with a silver spoon in my mouth, or the son of a politician, you could have a go at me. But that’s not the case.”

    He made the remarks in the town of Bourg-de-Peage during the third round of ‘national debates’, a series of town hall-like events the authorities hope will help to foster compromise with the Yellow Vest protesters and other critics of the government. Some, however, find it hard to buy Macron’s ‘I’m one of you’ message.

    “He obviously doesn’t come from lower-income brackets like some of us do,”
     a woman told RT on the streets of Paris. “He can’t understand the everyday problems of French people living on minimum wage,” another Parisian said. “But it’s not really important what he says now. His future actions will define his presidency.”

    Not exactly a man of humble upbringing, Macron comes from a well-off family. Prior to first joining the government as minister of economy and finance, he was an investment banker with Rothschild & Cie Banque.

    “He studied in elite schools, as aristocrats do. He was ‘made’ there. The French elite is created this way,”
     a man told RT. Even if the president is right about not being born into the elite, his milieu most certainly was, another said.


    “Throughout his career Macron has networked with people who were born with silver spoons in their mouths. I think he is more a president for the rich. He is a ‘puppet’ of the big banks.”

    In the eyes of his critics, Macron well deserves the ‘president of the rich’ tag after scrapping the wealth tax, claiming it will prevent capital flight and boost the French economy.

Emmmanuel Macron CONFIRMS EU Army Plans – ‘Europe New SHIELD Against the World’

Daniel 7:7 – ” … behold, a fourth beast, dreadful and terrible, exceedingly strong. It had huge iron teeth; it was devouring, breaking in pieces, and trampling the residue with its feet. It was different from all the beasts that were before it, and it had ten horns.”

  • Emmmanuel Macron CONFIRMS EU Army Plans – ‘Europe New SHIELD Against the World’
    by ALESSANDRA SCOTTO DI SANTOLO, https://www.express.co.uk/
    PLANS to establish a European Army received a huge boost by French President Emmanuel Macron and German Chancellor Angela Merkel following their renewed commitment to a post-war agreement between the two nations.

    French President  claimed the renewed alliance will allow Europe to become the “new shield” against the “tumults in the world”. The French leader argued the two nations’ partnership will provide EU citizens with the “real protection” they need. Speaking at a joint press conference with German Chancellor  following their signed commitment to the Aachen Treaty, President Macron said: “Our joint ambition should be that Europe becomes the new shield for the people against the new tumults in the world.

    “That is our contemporary challenge, it is these new protections, it is our capacity to finally explain, show and demonstrate that the friendship between Germany and France, our common projects, that our ambition for Europe is what protects us really, and is what really allows us to regain control of our lives and to construct our destinies, freely chosen, in the world.”

    The latest Franco-German bid to strong-arm the EU under their control was hailed by EU officials in Brussels. Mrs Merkel said the Franco-German treaty will act at the first step towards a “European army”, in her speech in the coronation room of Aachen town hall.

Merkel: New Germany-France (Merger) Treaty Step Toward European Army

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 10 nations coalition, federation of 10 nations endtimes empire, which was behind the scenes has now been publicly revealed IMO. (see below)
  • Merkel: New Germany-France Treaty Step Toward European Army
    by https://sputniknews.com/
    The treaty will reportedly strengthen the existing ties between Germany and France, in particular, in the fields of economic, foreign and security policy, education and culture, research and technologies, climate and environment, as well as cooperation between border regions and civil societies.

    The new Franco-German treaty is intended as a step towards a European army, German Chancellor Angela Merkel has stated during a press conference with French President Emmanuel Macron.

    “We assume the commitment to develop a common military culture, common defence industry, a common line for arms exports. Thus, we want to contribute to the formation of a European army”, Merkel said. She said Germany and France would assist each other, including militarily, in the event of an armed attack on their territories. The two leaders are meeting on 22 January to sign a treaty on further boosting Franco-German cooperation.

    The new agreement has been developed on the basis of the 1963 Elysee Treaty, which greatly contributed to the historic reconciliation between France and Germany. The purpose of the new treaty is to enhance cooperation between the two states and prepare for the challenges they face in the 21st century, according to the Elysee Palace.

Merkel Says Franco-German (Merger) Treaty a Step Towards European Army

  • Merkel Says Franco-German Treaty a Step Towards European Army
    by https://www.rte.ie/
    Chancellor Angela Merkel has said that a new Franco-German friendship treaty was a step toward the creation of a future joint European army. Ms Merkel said the pact aims to build a Franco-German “common military culture” and “contributes to the creation of a European army”.

    President Emmanuel Macron and Chancellor Merkel signed the deal, which pledges deeper economic and defence ties as well as commitment to the EU, in the German city of Aachen. The French presidency said it was an “important moment” for showing the relationship was “a bedrock which can relaunch itself … in the service of reinforcing the European project”.

    Aachen, which sits on the Dutch and Belgian borders, is rich in European symbolism as the seat of power of Charlemagne, the 1st-century emperor who ruled over swathes of western Europe.

    “We’re seeing an existential crisis in terms of European integration, with Brexit and the expected strengthening of nationalists at the next European elections,” said Claire Demesmay, a political scientist at German research institute DGAP. “In this context, confirming this belief in Franco-German cooperation has symbolic value,” she told German public radio.
