German drugs giant Bayer has made a $62bn (£43bn) offer for Monsanto, in a deal that would create the world’s biggest agricultural supplier.
Bayer said the bid was an “extraordinary opportunity to create a global agriculture leader.”
Monsanto is primarily known for genetically modified crops, often leading to vocal activist criticism.
Last week, news of the deal angered Bayer investors, with one describing it as “arrogant empire-building”. Continue reading
For over seven decades we’ve forecast the rise of a German-led united states of Europe. Today, other analysts and news writers are beginning to see the same trend develop—and at an alarming pace. Germany’s ascent to the top of Europe came quickly after World War ii and now we’re witnessing the fulfilment of a dream shared by European leaders throughout the centuries: the resurrection of the Holy Roman Empire. On today’s Trumpet Daily Radio Show, Stephen Flurry explains what Bible prophecy says about Germany’s rising dominance in Europe. Continue reading
Langley Intelligence Group says yes, and Bible prophecy agrees.
Berlin is working to create an anti-Iran alliance, and its boost in arms sales to Persian Gulf nations portends a shifting military culture, which could soon push Germany itself to rearm, Langley Intelligence Group Network said on April 24.
The report focuses on the “Merkel Doctrine,” as the German media terms it, which refers primarily to Berlin’s efforts to form a balance of power against Iran by arming Sunni Arab nations and Israel. The term is also taking on a secondary meaning about the increasing impetus for Berlin to move toward a more robust use of the German military.
The Fourth Reich rising:
And how will this whirlwind prophecy be done? Likely through a European Army created by the German-led United States of Europe, if it isn’t NATO.
The Islamic Republic’s terrorist reach extends well beyond the Middle East.
Even to the casual observer, Iranian meddling in Iraq, Syria, Lebanon, Israel, Yemen, Bahrain and other Middle Eastern nations is abundantly evident.
Iran is fighting both directly and indirectly against rebel forces in Iraq and Syria. It has tremendous clout in Lebanon via its Hezbollah proxy, and its determination to “wipe Israel off the map” is widely known. Recently, an Iranian general declared that his nation “must make efforts to bring Bahrain back into Iranian territory and transform it into a part of [its southwestern province of Bushehr].” And in the past four months, three Iranian shipments of weapons have been intercepted in the Middle East. The most recent of those arms shipments was intended for Houthi rebels in Yemen.
What’s less apparent, however, is Iranian meddling in Africa. Continue reading
If you’re looking for Nazis, you’re 70 years late to the party.
The nation has taken a different approach through proxies stacked within the Troika (European Commission, IMF and European Central bank). Germany then uses these institutions to economically force member nations to submit to their will or face a crash and its leaders will be out of power. Thankfully, the United States has its pawn running the IMF with Legarde, but 2/3 is enough to get things done their way as we’ve seen with Greece, now a German vassal state.
Through the shaped engineered unrest coming and a predetermined solution already at hand, The United States of Europe will be born — the world’s next superpower courtesy of the Fourth Reich. The EU Army is already being formed and the rest is not far behind.
Conditions on the Continent are ripe for the rise of a dictator.
Europe—homeland of Justinian, of Charlemagne, of Napoleon, stomping grounds of many of history’s most fearsome rulers—is suffering a crisis of leadership.
It’s not for lack of government. The place is crawling with bureaucrats. But Europeans, swaddled in red tape, are like children in an orphanage: nannies everywhere—but oh, how they need a father. Continue reading
This could also be what’s going on in the German-dominated European continent, where a United States of Europe with it’s European Army is coming.
“Many of you were in elementary school when you learned the toughest lesson of all on 9/11,” he said. “There are no walls big enough to stop people from anywhere, tens of thousands of miles away, who are determined to take their own lives while they target others.”
Kerry didn’t mention Trump by name, but Trump has repeatedly called for a wall on the southern U.S. border, and many Democrats, and some Republicans, have taken to calling him a carnival barker. Continue reading
(TRUNEWS) Germany is backing a plan to assemble a European Union Army, which would bring together all 28 member states under one command.
The plan would involve sharing equipment, putting together a council of ministers and having a headquarters.
The troops currently stationed at Incirlik Air Base include pilots, technicians, ground staff and specialists who evaluate the obtained images from the reconnaissance flights. Yet the troops at Incirlik have had to operate within temporary structures, such as containers and tents.
Spiegel reported that the German Army expects a long-term operation in Turkey. It referenced a planning paper from the Defense Ministry, which listed $75 million to be spent for: an air control area ($12 million), accommodations for German soldiers ($17 million), and a fully equipped combat headquarters ($39 million).

From 2007 with lessons for today:
It could be one of the most momentous, watershed events ever to occur on the European continent.
The time is drawing nearer when Britain will leave the European Union.
How will this development affect life on the Continent? Drastically.
Over the years, Britain has been the biggest hindrance to the unification project proceeding forward. Where France and Germany had ambitious designs for European unity, Britain viewed it as a take-it-or-leave-it economic venture. This fundamental difference, coupled with Britain’s sheer size and political influence, has made London the resident counterweight to Franco-German ambition. Continue reading
…and it won’t stop at ISIS. Guess who’s back.
Germany is planning to open an air base in southern Turkey that will assist its military in an intensified campaign against the Islamic State group in Syria. The planned $73 million base will be built as an extension to the Incirlik base, which both the German and U.S. military use for refueling missions to Syria, Spiegel reported. Continue reading
Germany to build a military base in Turkey
- Spiegel magazine reported that Germany is spending $73.7 million to build a new air base in Turkey.
- It will be built at the site in Incirlik where the Bundeswehr (German Army) is currently flying reconnaissance and refueling missions into Syria.
- The German Ministry of Defense expects its military campaign against the Islamic State will drag on, and therefore believes it needs to provide some more permanent solutions.
- One politician expressed surprise at how quickly Germany has been able to turn Europe’s initial reaction to the Paris attacks into a long-term military presence in Turkey.
- Is this part of Germany’s whirlwind strategy?
