EU To Require ‘Biometric ID’

One step closer:

14 Because of the signs it was given power to perform on behalf of the first beast, it deceived the inhabitants of the earth. It ordered them to set up an image in honor of the beast who was wounded by the sword and yet lived. 15 The second beast was given power to give breath to the image of the first beast, so that the image could speak and cause all who refused to worship the image to be killed. 16 It also forced all people, great and small, rich and poor, free and slave, to receive a mark on their right hands or on their foreheads, 17 so that they could not buy or sell unless they had the mark, which is the name of the beast or the number of its name. — Revelation 13: 14-17

The European Commission presented on Wednesday (31 May) its proposal to “move forward” on eurozone integration with a treasury, a finance minister and several instruments to make the financial sector less vulnerable to crises.

The document, which is part of an ongoing reflection about the future of the EU, aims to “fill the gaps” in the single currency and to help the eurozone economies to converge.

“We cannot and should not wait for another crisis,” said commission vice president Valdis Dombrovskis, who admitted that “doubts remain about the full stability and safety of the system”. Continue reading

The refugee crisis is precipitating a transformative identity crisis in Europe. 

You have probably seen footage of helpless refugees pouring into Europe. It can bring you to tears to see photos of drowned toddlers, pregnant women traversing dangerous terrain, and thousands of underdressed, malnourished children.

But there is another important angle to this crisis that hasn’t received nearly enough consideration. This is the impact the refugee crisis is having and will increasingly have on Europe. Not just the immense financial cost, or the potential infiltration by Islamist terrorists, or the inevitable erosion of European culture. These consequences are significant. But something more fundamental, and more alarming, is unfolding.

Europe is experiencing a transformative identity crisis.

SCO Must Develop Measures to React to Threats Against Member States

And now the military side of the SCO will begin showing its teeth. These comments set the tone.

With India and Pakistan to be accepted into the club as early as Monday, the U.S., who is already suiciding itself out of existence, is going to have a serious problem on its hands — and is not prepared. Russia is also a full-fledged member.

If you ever wanted to see the 200 million man army written in Bible prophecy, this is a good candidate. The SCO is a world war axis and the sword is coming.

Delusional Demise of the Euro – It’s A Plan Now

Everyone comes to the foregone conclusion that the European project was a failure from its inception. Yet what most people don’t see, and oft repeated (see also HERE), is that it was intentionally designed to fail. Once ‘all hell breaks loose’ the government is right there to hand you the predetermined solution to provide the desired outcome in society they had long hoped for. In this case, a European superstate, or The United States of Europe with Germany and its Fourth Reich at the helm.

 

The eminent collapse of the Euro was pre-determined by the disastrous design from the outset. Instead of accepting responsibility and altering the mistakes that would require political reform, we are in a position where Europe is simply moving into the realm of beyond all hope. Continue reading

Ireland To Hold Referendum On EU Treaty

Ireland is to hold a referendum on whether to accept the European fiscal treaty which tightens controls on member states’ budgetary decisions.

Taoiseach Enda Kenny said he was confident the public will vote in favour of ratifying the contentious compact.

“I believe it is in Ireland’s national interest that this treaty be approved,” said Mr Kenny.

The Taoiseach, who announced plans for the referendum in the Dail, said that adopting the fiscal compact would be vital for Ireland’s economic recovery and job creation.

A decision to hold a referendum was taken on advice from Attorney General Maire Whelan.

The treaty, agreed by 25 of the 27 European Union states after Britain and the Czech Republic refused support, must be ratified by January 2013.

It is designed to prevent a repeat of the Greek debt crisis and protect against the potential collapse of the euro currency.
