European Leaders Discuss Plan for European Army

The United States of Europe is underway and its complimenting European Army is under construction. You’re looking at quite possibly the world’s next superpower — all courtesy of Germany’s Fourth Reich. All this of course is made easier when you run two-thirds of the Troika and have pushed Great Britain out of the EU bloc. None of this would happen if America would stop suiciding itself into the dustbin of history and remain a reliable partner by standing its ground on the world stage.

Either way, yes, they’re back. If you’re looking for Nazis, you’re 70 years too late. The game plan has entered a new phase.

“We are going to move towards an EU army much faster than people believe.”

  • Critics say that the creation of a European army, a long-held goal of European federalists, would entail an unprecedented transfer of sovereignty from European nation states to unelected bureaucrats in Brussels, the de facto capital of the EU.
  • Others say that efforts to move forward on European defense integration show that European leaders have learned little from Brexit, and are determined to continue their quest to build a European superstate regardless of opposition from large segments of the European public.
  • “Those of us who have always warned about Europe’s defense ambitions have always been told not to worry… We’re always told not to worry about the next integration and then it happens. We’ve been too often conned before and we must not be conned again.” — Liam Fox, former British defense secretary.
  • “[C]reation of EU defense structures, separate from NATO, will only lead to division between transatlantic partners at a time when solidarity is needed in the face of many difficult and dangerous threats to the democracies.” — Geoffrey Van Orden, UK Conservative Party defense spokesman.

European leaders are discussing “far-reaching proposals” to build a pan-European military, according to a French defense ministry document leaked to the German newspaper, the Süddeutsche Zeitung.

The efforts are part of plans to relaunch the European Union at celebrations in Rome next March marking the 60th anniversary of the Treaty of Rome, which established the European Community. Continue reading

France and Germany propose EU ‘defence union’

And guess where the focus is: The Middle East, where the Biblically prophesied King of the South (possibly Iran) just might reside. Who leads this? Germany’s Fourth Reich. France, as you’ve seen in years worth of previous posts on Global Geopolitics, including this one, only toes the dominant German line.

Furthermore, with America on its way out as a world superpower, we might be seeing the rise of another via Germany and its collection of subordinate vassal states, which could also as a whole turn into the Biblically prophesied King of the North. This new incoming bloc at the moment is referred to as the United States of Europe. Only time will tell how God chooses to let this play out.

Germany and France have drawn up plans for closer EU defence cooperation, including a new military HQ and swifter deployment of overseas missions.

The ideas were outlined by the two countries’ defence ministers, Ursula Von der Leyen and Jean-Yves Le Drian, in a six-page paper sent to the EU foreign service on Sunday (11 September) and seen by German newspaper Sueddeutsche Zeitung and French daily Le Figaro.

The Franco-German paper says, according to Le Figaro, that “in the context of a deteriorating security environment … it is high time to reinforce our solidarity and European defence capabilities in order to more effectively protect the citizens and borders of Europe”. Continue reading

Germany: Beginning of the End of the Merkel Era?

German Chancellor Angela Merkel (left) suffered a major blow on September 4 when the anti-immigration party Alternative for Germany, led by Frauke Petry (right), surged ahead of her Christian Democratic Union in elections in her home state of Mecklenburg-West Pomerania.

 

  • The anti-immigration party Alternative for Germany (AfD) surged ahead of Angela Merkel’s Christian Democratic Union (CDU) in elections in her home state of Mecklenburg-West Pomerania.
  • The election was widely seen as a referendum on Merkel’s open-door migration policy and her decision to allow more than one million migrants from Africa, Asia and the Middle East to enter Germany in 2015.
  • Merkel rejected any course correction on migration policy: “I am very unsatisfied with the outcome of the election. Obviously it has something to do with the refugee question. I think the decisions that were made were correct.” She went on to blame German voters for failing to appreciate her government’s “problem-solving abilities”
  • Many of the AfD’s positions were once held, but later abandoned, by the Merkel’s CDU.
  • A September 1 poll showed Merkel’s popularity rating has plunged to 45%, a five-year low. More than half (51%) of those surveyed said it would “not be good” if Merkel ran for another term in 2017.

German Chancellor Angela Merkel suffered a major blow on September 4 when the anti-immigration party Alternative for Germany (AfD) surged ahead of her Christian Democratic Union (CDU) in elections in her home state of Mecklenburg-West Pomerania.

Watch Germany!

 

Europe’s refugee crisis is shaking Europe to its foundations. The shocks will help bring a new leader to power soon who will make a sinister deal with Russia.

Every reader should closely watch what is happening in Germany. That nation is going through some dramatic changes that are about to reshape the country and the whole of Europe. Yet most of the world is asleep to how serious these changes are.

German Chancellor Angela Merkel has never been weaker. In a very short time, she has gone from being one of the most popular politicians in the world to being the target of a lot of anger from the German people.

“You are killing off Europe.” Those were German politician Edmund Stoiber’s words for Chancellor Merkel in early January. Stoiber is the former minister-president of the state of Bavaria. In his view, Merkel’s policy of welcoming hundreds of thousands of immigrants from the Middle East and North Africa is destroying not just Germany, but all of Europe. Continue reading

Analysis: The security implications of the Panama Papers

What should also be interesting to see is how this scandal is going to be used in the war against cash, being that governments are now wanting to ban it to prevent bank runs in a financial crisis.

THE BACKGROUND OF THE LEAK

The source of the Panama Papers leak —the largest in history— is apparently a single individual who contacted the widely respected German newspaper Süddeutsche Zeitung over a year ago. After receiving assurances that his or her anonymity would be safeguarded, the source proceeded to provide the paper with what eventually amounted to over 11.5 million files. They include company emails, banking transaction records, and files of clients that span the years 1977 to 2015. The source asked for no financial compensation or other form of reimbursement in return, saying only that he or she wanted to “make these crimes public”. Continue reading

Merkel Has Two Months to Fix Migrant Crisis

One of Germany’s most senior statesmen has ended years of political silence to warn the German chancellor that she must get a grip on the immigration crisis—and do it soon.

German Chancellor Angela Merkel has until the end of March to change her mind about the nation’s approach to refugees or her position as chancellor could be under threat, according to one of Germany’s senior statesmen. “Angela Merkel must now change her position; otherwise there will be disastrous consequences for Germany and Europe,” he said.

War, a Mission of Generations

BERLIN (Own report) – Following last Friday’s terrorist attacks in Paris, leading German media have begun speaking of a new world war. A renowned daily, for example, wrote that “a third world war” is currently being forced upon “the entire planet,” warning that the war against IS “is not yet being waged with the intensity needed in a world war.” Other journals are calling for resolute action without “half-heartedness” or even “self-recrimination.” The fact that after 14 years of the “War on Terror,” terrorism is stronger than ever before and the Arab-Muslim world is in shambles is allegedly not the result of a misguided western policy. The West supposedly bears no responsibility for the fact that “processes of disintegration and decivilization” have begun within the “Muslim belt of crisis stretching from Pakistan to Morocco,” which has led to a “breakdown of civilization.” In addition to the continuation – and even expansion – of the policy of military intervention, various media are also calling for broadening domestic repression. In the case of a “terror threat,” the Bundeswehr should take on the task of protecting endangered streets. Among Germany’s main national media organs, only one renowned business journal is not participating in this comprehensive orchestration of public opinion and preparation for a “world war.” Military escalation “does not bring peace,” it only “spawns suicide bombers,” warns its chief editor and calls for finally searching for alternatives.

Greek Crisis Still Simmering

The Greek crisis is still far from being solved with Athens struggling to implement the reforms it promised in order to receive the latest round of bailouts from the European Union. So far, Greece has only followed through on 14 out of the 48 reforms needed to receive the €86 billion (us$95 billion) promised in the third bailout agreement made in August. Süddeutsche Zeitung reported on Tuesday that European creditors are planning to delay the October payment of $3.3 billion, with the planned $27.6 billion bailout payment to recapitalize Greece’s banks also in jeopardy.

Germany Plans New African Mission

 

 

Germany is planning to send several hundred soldiers on a mission to stabilize the region of northern Mali. Not only is this another important step forward for Germany’s military and its increasing involvement in the world, but it is also an important step forward in developing German-Dutch military cooperation.

Europe Will Soon Impose Border Controls

Europe is imposing capital controls…  next up will be border controls.

How do we know? Because they already suggested this before.

Back in March of 2012, when the EU Crisis first began to spin out of control, then Prime Minister of France Nicolas Sarkozy openly called for the renegotiation of the Schengen Treaty: the treaty that established the 26-nation EU as a “borderless” entity in which individuals could move from one country to another with little difficulty and which also made trade among EU members easier. Continue reading

Eurozone To Impose Capital Controls On Greece If No Deal By Weekend: German Press

It looks like we’re going to see a painful first shot fired at Greece if they can’t come up with a deal. What exactly will happen out of this is anyone’s guess, but here are three (but not limited to) possible scenarios while Germany’s Fourth Reich drops the hammer:

  • Greece capitulates and is brought to its knees and becomes a German vassal state like Cyprus. (40% chance)
  • Win-win situation for all is found with dual economy compromise. A dual economy with weaker EU nations on the periphery and two currencies as in Cuba. (40% chance)
  • Grexit with a following meldown of the world’s largest economy, the European Union. (20% chance — less likely due to high strategic importance and national security of Europe)

 

Just as we hinted earlier when we reported that the ECB may use the “nuclear option” on Wednesday and yank Greek ELA, here comes German Suddeutsche Zeiting [sic] with a report that Eurozone countries have reached a Greek emergency plan (yay)… which calls for the imposition of capital controls on Greece if no deal is concluded by the weekend (oh no).

https://i0.wp.com/cdn3.img.sputniknews.com/images/102187/62/1021876294.jpg

 

German arms company Heckler & Koch illegally sold large supplies of weapons to Mexico, a German newspaper reported Friday, citing sources at a customs agency.

MOSCOW (Sputnik) – The German Customs Investigation Bureau in Cologne (ZKA) said, as cited by Sueddeutsche Zeitung, that between 2003 and 2011, Heckler & Koch company delivered 9,400 rifles to Mexico.

According to the newspaper, the company made 3 million euros ($3.4 million) in the illegal sales of G36 assault rifles. Continue reading

Is Europe Getting Ready to Fight Back?

The trend was most clearly demonstrated by European Union Commission President Jean-Claude Juncker, who called for the EU to create an army. He told Die Welt on March 8 that “a common European army would convey a clear message to Russia that we are serious about defending our European values.”

His statements received broad support, especially in Germany. Defense Minister Ursula von der Leyen said that “a European army is the future,” and Chancellor Angela Merkel called for “deeper military cooperation in Europe.” Continue reading

Flashback: German Paper: Banks Getting Ready for Greece to Leave Euro

Banks are preparing staff to deal with riots after Greece switches back to the drachma.

Banks are quietly preparing for Greece to leave the EU, Süddeutsche Zeitung warned August 22. “An army of management consultants and lawyers” have spent weeks on “the infinite number of things to do,” it wrote (translation from Presseurop throughout). Continue reading

Top EU diplomat calls for Palestinian state within 5 years

Ahead of her visit Friday, Federica Mogherini says actors in the region ‘need the European Union to be present to make steps forward’

The European Union’s new foreign policy chief called for the creation of a Palestinian state within the five years of her term, and announced that the EU intends to play a more influential role in the Middle East than it has in the past.

“What’s important for me is not whether other countries, be they European or not, recognize Palestine,” Federica Mogherini told the European press in comments published Tuesday, referring to Sweden’s recent recognition of a Palestinian state. “I’d be happy if, during my mandate, the Palestinian state existed.”

This weekend, she is scheduled to arrive in Israel and the Palestinian territories for her first official visit. During her two-day trip, she will meet with Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, Foreign Minister Avigdor Liberman, President Reuven Rivlin, opposition leader Isaac Herzog and the chief peace negotiator, Justice Minister Tzipi Livni. She is also expected to travel to Ramallah and the Gaza Strip, where she will meet with senior Palestinian officials. Continue reading
