A resurgent spirit on mainland Europe?

In what has been described as a 'game-changing' event, the recent EU summit aimed at addressing the financial calamity facing the Eurozone is perhaps leading to a repeat of a little-known event at the close of the Second World War.

David Cameron’s refusal last Friday to accept Lisbon Treaty changes bringing tighter fiscal union and a further very significant loss of national sovereignty for EU members.

The isolation of Britain from the other 26 member states on this issue is a seismic change in our relationship with Europe. The possibility exists that we may indeed now free ourselves to some extent from European governance.

Few have heard of US Military Intelligence report EW-Pa 128 also known as the Red House report. It is a detailed account of a secret meeting at the Maison Rouge Hotel in Strasbourg on August 10, 1944.

German document

There, Nazi officials ordered an elite group of German industrialists to plan for Germany's post-war recovery, prepare for the Nazis' return to power and work for a 'strong German empire'. In other words, the Fourth Reich. As Adam Lebor wrote for the Daily Mail:

Nazi Germany exported massive amounts of capital through neutral countries. German businesses set up a network of front companies abroad. The German economy soon recovered after 1945 – all in line with the 1944 plan. The Third Reich was defeated militarily, but powerful Nazi-era bankers, industrialists and civil servants, reborn as democrats, soon prospered in the new West Germany. There they worked for a new cause: European economic and political integration.

A 77 year-old Nazi plot to dominate Europe in the post-war period may seem farfetched to you, but German-dominated European economic and political integration took a step further this last weekend.

The following proposed EU measures will be viewed by some as heralding the arrival of the antichrist financial system in Europe. Others will say that the German dream of dominance over Europe has been achieved without a shot being fired. Germany, the industrial and economic powerhouse of Europe, represented by Chancellor Merkel is very much the driving force for these changes:
  • A commitment to "balanced budgets" for Eurozone countries- defined as a structural deficit no greater than 0.5% of gross domestic product - to be written into national constitutions
  • Automatic sanctions for any Eurozone country whose deficit exceeds 3% of GDP
  • A requirement to submit their national budgets to the European Commission, which will have the power to request that they be revised.
ThumbscrewsAny European nation no longer able to govern its own financial affairs cannot be considered a free state with autonomous sovereign power in the conventional sense.

The European President Van Rompuy is unelected, Baroness Ashton the EU foreign policy chief is unelected, the European Commission is also unelected. The same is true of many members of the current Greek and Italian governments, made up of financial or political technocrats, appointed because they will align with EU policy. Does this sound like democratic activity?

For the seventeenth consecutive year, the Court of Auditors has been unable to sign off the EU budget. The auditors said that they were unable to account for 3.7 percent of European spending. This equates to €4.6 Billion of the European Union’s colossal €122 Billion annual budget.
In Brussels nobody bats an eyelid. That’s not surprising. It would have been a bigger shock if they had actually signed off the budget for once.

It seems that this weekend Britain has begun to distance itself from the EU. Two thirds of British people consider that a good idea, but Britain still faces immense challenges and major crises.

As we look forward to 2012, the likelihood of economic distress, the church being shaken, the possibility of looting, rioting, and terrorism in our land and all-out war in the Middle East don't seem farfetched at all. It is an agreed view amongst the political and economic pundits that the recent summit addressed tomorrow's problems in the Eurozone; but as yet no solution has been found to remedy the present economic crisis which has gripped the EU. In fact we could be just weeks away from a financial disaster that will collapse the Euro, causing panic and chaos.

'At that time his voice shook the earth, but now he has promised, "Once more I will shake not only the earth but also the heavens."
The words "once more" indicate the removing of what can be shaken--that is, created things--so that what cannot be shaken may remain.' 
Hebrews 12:26-27
