Novus Ordo Seclorum: French and Germans explore idea of smaller euro zone

Smaller Font Larger Font RSS 2.0

November 10, 2011PARISGerman and French officials have discussed plans for a radical overhaul of the European Union that would involve setting up a
more integrated and potentially smaller euro zone, EU sources say. “France and Germany have had intense consultations on this issue over the last months, at all levels,” a senior EU official in Brussels told Reuters, speaking on condition of anonymity because of the sensitivity of the discussions. “We need to move very cautiously, but the truth is that we need to establish exactly the list of those who don’t want to be part of the club and those who simply cannot be part,” the official said. French President Nicolas Sarkozy gave some flavor of his thinking during an address to students in the eastern French city of Strasbourg on Tuesday, when he said a two-speed Europe — the euro zone moving ahead more rapidly than all 27 countries in the EU — was the only model for the future. The discussions among senior policymakers in Paris, Berlin and Brussels raised the possibility of one or more countries leaving the euro zone while the remaining core pushes on toward deeper economic integration, including on tax and fiscal policy. The change has been discussed on an “intellectual” level but had not moved to operational or technical discussions, the EU official said. A French finance ministry spokesman denied there was any project in the works to reduce the currency bloc’s membership. “There have been no conversations between French and German authorities at any level on decreasing the size of the euro zone,” the spokesman said. A radical overhaul of the European Union would be opposed by many members. “This will unravel everything our forebears have painstakingly built up and repudiate all that they stood for in the past sixty years,” one EU diplomat told Reuters. “This will redraw the map geopolitically and give rise to new tensions. It could truly be the end of Europe as we know it.” In Berlin, European Commission President Jose Manuel Barroso warned about the economic costs of any splits in the euro zone. Germany’s gross domestic product could contract and its economy would shed one million jobs, he said in a speech. Barroso said any push toward deeper economic policy integration should not come at the price of creating new divisions among EU members. “There cannot be peace and prosperity in the North or in the West of Europe, if there is no peace and prosperity in the South or in the East,” he said. To an extent the taboo on a country leaving the 17-member currency bloc was already broken at the G20 summit in Cannes last week, when German Chancellor Angela Merkel and Sarkozy both effectively said that Greece might have to drop out if the euro zone’s long-term stability was to be maintained. -Reuters
Wars and Biblical Prophecy: The prophecy in 2nd chapter of the book of Daniel speaks of the final 10 nation confederacy descended from European countries that will be in league with the papal state prior to the return of Christ. “And as the toes of the feet (10) were part iron, and part of clay, so the kingdom shall be partly strong, and partly broken.” Daniel 2:42. Is this crumbling European Union, partly strong and partly broken, a part of this prophecy? George W. Bush said the EU would have a completely different look in 5 years. In the novel 1984, against a backdrop of the global police state, the world is subjected to a multi-generational series of endless wars in Eurasia as propaganda and unending surveillance haunts every citizens of the New World Order dystopian society. The Party tolerates no dissent and demands absolute pious obedience to the authority of the State. Eurasia is inhabited by almost 4 billion people and comprises more than 72.5% of the world’s total population. -The Extinction Protocol
Individual rights eroding: A Supreme Court justice on Tuesday expressed major concerns that the government would engage in round-the-clock surveillance reminiscent of the totalitarian world of the George Orwell novel 1984 if the court ruled in the government’s favor. The court heard oral arguments in the Jones case, in which the outcome will determine whether warrantless GPS tracking by law enforcement is an invasion of Fourth Amendment protection from unreasonable search and seizure. Justice Stephen Breyer questioned what a democratic society would look like if people believed the government was tracking them for days at a time. If you win this case, then there is nothing to prevent the police or the government from monitoring 24 hours a day the public movement of every citizen of the United States,” Breyer said. “So if you win, you suddenly produce what sounds like 1984 from their brief.” –The Hill
