  • All these events are setting up the stage for the war in Revelation 17: the 10 Horn Beast Revived Roman Empire (EU 2.0) vs the Mystery Babylon Whore (America 2.0). Washington DC, the City of 7 Hills, is the endtimes Babylon city IMO.

    Revelation 17:16-17 New King James Version (NKJV)
    16 And the ten horns which you saw on[a] the beast, these will hate the harlot, make her desolate and naked, eat her flesh and burn her with fire. 17 For God has put it into their hearts to fulfill His purpose, to be of one mind, and to give their kingdom to the beast, until the words of God are fulfilled.

  • RT Published on Oct 12, 2017
    The New York Times had previously claimed anti-virus software, produced by the Russian-based company Kaspersky, had been used by Moscow to spy on the US. However, an investigation by Germany’s cybersecurity agency says there’s no evidence to support the accusation.

FRANCE v EU: Emmanuel Macron Warns European Leaders They Have ONE YEAR to Reform Bloc

  • FRANCE v EU: Emmanuel Macron Warns European Leaders They Have ONE YEAR to Reform Bloc
    by MARK CHANDLER, http://www.express.co.uk/
    EMMANUEL Macron has challenged EU leaders including Angela Merkel to sort out reform of the bloc within a year.

    The French President set out his own blueprint for a more tightly integrated union last month, calling for a string of changes including a shared budget and joint defence force. And he warned yesterday that member states only had one year before the 2019 European Parliament elections to sort out reforms. Mr Macron set the deadline during a speech at Goethe University in Frankfurt before a later public appearance with Mrs Merkel.

    He told the audience in Germany: “I believe that, if you have a vision, you shouldn’t go to the doctor but you should open a debate. “I think we need to start the debate, we have a year to clarify and draw up a common roadmap.”

    The president said he wanted to meet Mrs Merkel more often so the pair could thrash out the EU’s future. He asked: “If we are ready for common policies on security, digital infrastructure, energy, migration, the fight against terrorism, then who can explain to me why we can’t have a common eurozone budget?”

Macron’s EU Plan for ‘United States of Europe’ Will Cause Many More Brexits, Historian Warns

  • Macron’s EU Plan for ‘United States of Europe’ Will Cause Many More Brexits, Historian Warns
    by AURORA BOSOTTI, http://www.express.co.uk/
    EUROPEAN Union member states will increasingly break from Brussels if the institution continues to pursue Emmanuel Macron’s federalist dreams, historian Niall Ferguson claimed.

    Mr Ferguson said EU states will seek alternative arrangement because of Brussels’ power-grasping aspirations. Speaking on the BBC This Week, the historian said: “The more Europe looks like Mr Macron’s United States of Europe, the more plausible it becomes to say ‘well, we don’t really need to be in this relatively strong unitary nation.’

    “In states like Spain, we can go from the autonomy that they have in Catalonia to independence. I think there’s a relationship between European integration and the encouragement of small states. We saw that in Scotland.

    “Frequently the Scottish nationalists would argue that they could have independence in this new context that has been created by the European Union.”

    In a major policy speech, French President Emmanuel Macron said Britain’s decision to leave the EU “shouldn’t take up all our energy” and advocated further reform of the European project. Mr Macron made the speech as a slew of recent polls showed his approval ratings have slumped to worryingly low levels, with the Europhile leader holding the support of less than one-third of French voters.

    In his speech he advocated a strengthening of the economic and monetary union for a core group of member states, like France and Germany – something critics fear will lead to a “two-speed” Europe.

‘Emperor’ Macron Exploiting Merkel’s Election Shock to Become Next EU Leader

  • ‘Emperor’ Macron Exploiting Merkel’s Election Shock to Become Next EU Leader
    by CHARLOTTE DAVIS, http://www.express.co.uk/
    FRENCH President Emmanuel Macron has abused Angela Merkel’s underwhelming election result by pushing for France to lead a European Empire, a Paris-based journalist has claimed.

    Speaking to France 24, journalist Chris Dickey said that Mr Macron is the new EU leader as he replaces Germany’s Angela Merkel, following her shock election result last month.

    Greeted by laughter from the panel, Mr Dickey, a Foreign Editor at The Daily Beast, said: “We’re sitting here searching for a word as we’re having this conversation for what the role would be for what he would assume, and the word that keeps coming to my mind is emperor. “He’s clearly looking to do this not by conquest but through the conquest of ideas – by building up the economy of France, by stabilising it so it is not seen as a burden by the Germans, but more as an equal. “But by coming forth with these visionary ideas, when in fact you have this sense of Germany kind of in an intellectual mire.” 

    Mr Dickey referenced The Economist’s cover featuring Macron in the spotlight and Merkel slumped in the shadows on the stage. Mr Dickey said: “When The Economist is doing that, as conservative as it is, and not terribly pro-French, historically it’s pretty striking.” 

    France 24 journalist Douglas Herbert also said: “There is a vacancy free right now to assume that intellectual pulpit in the leadership pulpit in Europe, and as a leader, he might be the prime candidate for that.”

    In a keynote speech at the Sorbonne University in Paris, President Macron revealed his plan for a more integrated union, which is a role that Germany has maintained for years. His plans include shared eurozone budget alongside closer links between European voters and their institutions.

    President Macron also called for a shared border police, a joint defence force and budget, plus a Europe-wide carbon tax.

‘He’s a Godsend’ Germany’s FDP Hails Macron’s Plans to Reform EU

  • ‘He’s a Godsend’ Germany’s FDP Hails Macron’s Plans to Reform EU
    by IDA AKERSTEDT, http://www.express.co.uk/
    THE LEADER of Germany’s Free Democrats (FDP) has warmly embraced Emmanuel Macron’s vision for the European Union as he hailed the French President as a “godsend”.

    Adapting a far more conciliatory tone than during the German election campaign, Christian Lindner echoed the language Mr Macron used when he set out his vision for Europe last week. In the French President’s big address at Sorbonne University in Paris he announced sweeping reforms of the EU including closer cooperation on defence, immigration, energy and digital economy. The 39-year-old also renewed his demands for a shared eurozone budget, which pro-business FDP has been hostile about throughout its election campaign. 

    But when asked about the topic, Mr Lindner told newspaper Bid am Sonntag: “We should not focus on red lines, but rather on common horizons.” In a marked shift of tone, he said: “Macron is a godsend. More cooperation in crime fighting, the military, asylum, energy and digital is within reach.”

    German Chancellor Angela Merkel’s Christian Democratic Union (CDU) is expected to enter talks with the FDP and the Greens in the coming weeks with the aim of forming a new three-way coalition government after a poor election performance.

France and Germany Agree ‘Intense’ Partnership to Push Federal EU Superstate After Brexit

  • France and Germany Agree ‘Intense’ Partnership to Push Federal EU After Brexit
    by Liam Deacon, http://www.breitbart.com/
    German Chancellor Angela Merkel and French President Emmanuel Macron have agreed an “intense” partnership to drive the European Union (EU) towards deeper integration after Brexit.

    Mrs. Merkel praised the young French premier’s ambitious vision for the bloc after he called for the EU to work more closely on defence and migration and for a eurozone budget. “Last night’s discussions showed there’s a common realisation of a need for a leap forward in Europe,” Mr. Macron told reporters from Reuters on Friday after an EU summit dinner in the Estonian capital Tallinn. “Today we’re all convinced Europe must move ahead faster and stronger, for more sovereignty, more unity, and more democracy,” he added.

    Mrs. Merkel told reporters before the meeting with Mr. Macron that his ideas could be the basis for “intense” Franco-German cooperation. She said: “As far as the proposals were concerned, there was a high level of agreement between German and France. “We must still discuss the details, but I am of the firm conviction that Europe can’t just stay still but must continue to develop.”

    In a wide-ranging speech earlier this week, Mr. Macron called on Germany to work with France to reform Europe, and drive it towards a federal superstate. He urged European leaders to put a vision for the EU above their national interests, saying in his address that he had “no red lines, only horizons”.

Merkel and Macron’s EU TAKEOVER: German Head Urges ‘INTENSE’ Co-operation as She Cosies Up

  • Merkel and Macron’s EU TAKEOVER: German Head Urges ‘INTENSE’ Co-operation as She Cosies Up
    by ROB VIRTUE, http://www.express.co.uk/
    GERMAN Chancellor Angela Merkel praised French President Emmanuel Macron’s ambitions for the European Union and said his ideas could be the foundation for “intense” Franco-German cooperation on the future of Europe.

    Meeting before a summit dinner of EU leaders in Estonia, Mrs Merkel and the recently elected Mr Macron are keen for the bloc’s founders to drive it forward in the wake of Brexit, though the losses she suffered in winning a fourth term on Sunday mean Europe’s leading politician faces uncertain support at home.

    On Tuesday, Mr Macron outlined bold proposals for a European renewal, calling for the European Union to work more closely on defence and migration and for a euro zone budget. He urged his peers to put European vision above national interests, saying in his address that he had “no red lines, only horizons”.

    However, he faced a cautious hearing when he expounded his ideas to fellow EU leaders over dinner in Tallinn. Lithuania’s no-nonsense President Dalia Grybauskaite tweeted while the discussion were ongoing: “European horizons drawn. “Important to avoid mirages in the desert on the way.”

    The informal get-together was arranged on the fly before a “digital summit” on issues ranging from data and cybersecurity to raising more tax from online firms. It had no set agenda and could range widely, even allowing for Prime Minister Theresa May to pitch her ideas on Britain’s looming exit from the European Union. But diplomats said its focus will be on the fizz of new initiatives, notably from Mr Macron.

Macron Wants to Create a “Group for the Rebuilding of Europe” in the Coming Weeks

  • Macron Wants to Create a “Group for the Rebuilding of Europe” in the Coming Weeks

    Macron to sell EU plan in Tallinn
    French president Emmanuel Macron will start his campaign to convince fellow EU leaders to support his EU reform propoosals on Thursday (28 September).


    At an informal dinner in Tallinn, Estonia, Macron will explain to his colleagues how he wants his ideas, laid out in a speech on Tuesday, to become the basis for a roadmap that would be elaborated before next summer.

    On Tuesday, he said that he wanted to create “in the coming weeks” a so-called “group for the rebuilding of Europe”, with representatives from all interested member states and from EU institutions.

    Before the Tallinn dinner, which was organised ahead of an EU digital summit on Friday, Macron will meet German chancellor Angela Merkel, whose support will be necessary if his initiative is to take off.

    On Wednesday, Merkel’s spokesman said that she welcomed Macron’s proposals “with an open mind”, but that it was “too early for a detailed assessment”. “The chancellor welcomes the fact that the French president spoke with so much verve, with so much European passion, and that he presented a lot of substance for the upcoming and essential debate about the future of Europe,” Steffen Seibert said.

    Macron’s ideas did not come as a surprise to the chancellor, who had spoken twice with the French leader ahead of his speech on Tuesday. On Monday, she signalled that she would “not rule out anything or set red lines,” and that her christian-democrat CDU/CSU party would “support what makes sense”.

Macron Lays Out Vision for ‘Profound’ Changes in Post-Brexit EU

  • Macron Lays Out Vision for ‘Profound’ Changes in Post-Brexit EU
    by  in Paris and  in Brussels, https://www.theguardian.com/international
    French president proposes deeper political integration but suggests UK ‘may one day find place’ in EU moving at different speeds.

    The French president, Emmanuel Macron, has set out his plans for a “profound transformation” of the EU with deeper political integration to win back the support of disgruntled citizens, but suggested a bloc moving forward at differing speeds could become somewhere the UK may “one day find its place again”.

    Macron, a staunchly pro-European centrist who came to power in May after beating the Front National’s Marine Le Pen, pleaded for the EU to return to its founders’ “visionary” ideas, which were born out of the disaster of two world wars.

    In what was hailed on Tuesday as one of the most pro-European speeches by an EU leader in years, he spoke up for common EU policies on defence, asylum and tax, called for the formation of European universities, and promised to play Ode to Joy, the EU anthem, at the Paris Olympics in 2024.

    He said time was running out for the EU to reinvent itself to counter the rise of far-right nationalism and “give Europe back to its citizens”. With Brexit looming, Macron warned the rest of Europe against the dangers of anti-immigrant nationalism and fragmentation. “We thought the past would not come back … We thought we had learned the lessons,” he told a crowd of European students at Sorbonne University in Paris.

    Days after a far-right party entered the German parliament for the first time in 70 years, Macron said an isolationist attitude had resurfaced “because of blindness … because we forgot to defend Europe. The Europe that we know is too slow, too weak, too ineffective”.

BOMBSHELL ADMISSION: Eurocrat Reveals Bloc’s Defence Plans ARE Designed to Create EU Army

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.”

  • BOMBSHELL ADMISSION: Eurocrat Reveals Bloc’s Defence Plans ARE Designed to Create EU Army
    by NICK GUTTERIDGE, BRUSSELS CORRESPONDENT, http://www.express.co.uk/
    A SENIOR eurocrat last night made the stunning admission that Brussels’ new defence policies are ultimately being used as a backdoor way of creating its own EU army.

    Gunther Oettinger, the bloc’s finance chief and a close confidante of Angela Merkel, said his “dream” of a euro force will be achieved incrementally through the slow entanglement of European militaries. The German eurocrat, who appeared on the podium next to Mrs Merkel as she delivered her election victory speech on Sunday, added the EU’s current defence plans are the “first step” on that journey. 

    His frank outburst will be greeted with dismay by other senior EU officials, including foreign affairs chief Federica Mogherini, who have tried to portray the ‘Defence Union’ in a more friendly light as a simple way of improving cooperation. Speaking about the proposals back in March, the Italian eurocrat said: “It is not the European army – I know this is the label that is going around – but it is a more effective way of handling our military work.”

Macron to Press Ahead with Speech Outlining Vision to Rebuild EU

  • Political theatre for sheeple consumption. The sheeple don’t get to decide the organization of Europe. It is just a persistent illusion they are under. A 10 nation federation: United States of Europe, has already been agreed and has been implemented behind the scenes. Emphasis mine:
  • Macron to Press Ahead with Speech Outlining Vision to Rebuild EU
    by  in Paris, https://www.theguardian.com/international
    French president will not be distracted from plans for deeper integration by tricky new coalition government in Germany.

    The French president, Emmanuel Macron, is to press ahead with a major speech setting out plans to “rebuild” the EU, despite fears that a new coalition government in Berlin could limit his ambitions.

    The German chancellor, Angela Merkel, who in recent months had cautiously warmed to Macron’s proposed radical overhaul of the eurozone, won a fourth term in office this weekend. But she faces difficult coalition talks with smaller parties in the face of opposition from the emboldened far-right, anti-Europe Alternative für Deutschland (AfD) party.

    The prospect of Merkel sharing power in a coalition with the pro-business Free Democratic party could create problems for Macron’s plans for deeper integration of the eurozone with a shared budget and finance minister.

    Christian Lindner, the FDP leader, remains fiercely critical of Macron’s ideas for eurozone governance, and hours after the election result said he would put the brakes on with “red lines” against Macron’s plans for a single eurozone budget.


    Lindner sought to hammer home German taxpayers’ fears that a more integrated eurozone with its own budget meant Germany being made to pay for bills left unpaid in other states, naming France and Italy. “For us, it’s unimaginable,” he said.

    The Greens, the other potential German coalition partner with Merkel, are in principle closer to some of Macron’s views. But with the FDP as a partner and the AfD pushing back loudly in parliament, the prospect of Merkel selling deeper European integration to her coalition and the wider public looks far more challenging.
