We live in extremely turbulent times, the prelude to what are likely to be substantially worse ones. In this scenario, the EU is trying to assert itself as an "active [power which could] make an impact on a global scale".
This was clearly expressed by Javier Solana, the EU's Common Foreign and Security Policy “representative”, when he outlined the EU's future defence strategy in its Thessaloniki summit in June 2002 (CCEE, 2003).
This strategy document, known as “A Secure Europe in a Better World", raises the possibility of the Union undertaking “early, rapid, and when necessary, robust intervention anywhere in the world".
The same summit also saw the approval of a future European Constitution (CE,2003), drafted by a Convention created specifically for this purpose.
European Union TreatyEdit
The proposed EU Constitution -- meant to replace all previous treaties -- was already legally dead thanks to ”no” votes by both the French and the Dutch in 2005.
But behind the scenes, there has been treachery afoot.
The Constitution underwent a political makeover and re-emerged as the new EU Reform Treaty.
The proposed [EU Reform] Treaty on how Europe will be run is essentially the same as the rejected EU Constitution, an architect of the original document said yesterday.
Valery Giscard d'Estaing, the former French president, admitted the changes made were "few and far between...and more cosmetic than real".
Mr d'Estaing, who has compared his role in drawing up the blueprint to that of America's founding fathers, said the term 'constitution' had been dropped simply to "make a few people happy".
German Chancellor Angela Merkel hailed the signing of the long-awaited EU Reform Treaty in Lisbon, saying it is a milestone for the European Union (EU).
"This day marks a historic success, a success for Europe," Merkel told the German parliament.
Senior British Cabinet sources have warned that the new treaty will push hard for Brussels to be given a full-time unelected president, who would serve a five year term and speak as the voice of Europe on the world stage.
The EU has long been used as a tool for globalization and has now reached the point at which it has become a supranational federal government for Europe. Over the years, what was originally sold as a simple free trade treaty has slowly been built from the bottom up into an all encompassing monolithic authority over the entire region.
The areas it now seeks to dominate also include public health, social policy, transport, justice, agriculture, fisheries, energy, economic and social cohesion, the environment, internal and external trade, and consumer protection.
The move towards a centralized superstate in Europe that supercedes nationally elected officials on virtually all aspects of governance mirrors almost exactly Hitler's vision for Europe in the 1930s.
European Federal ArmyEdit
Jean-Pierre Jouyet, the European affairs minister, said that the United States was more open than ever to a French push for a European Union defense capacity separate from NATO and that previously reluctant former communist EU members in the east were also coming around to the idea. "You can't be European, want to be a global player and not give yourself the necessary means," Jouyet said.
But all these countries that joined the European Union did so voluntarilyEdit
No, they did not. Look at Denmark which voted against the Maastricht treaty twice. Look at Ireland [which voted against the Nice treaty]. Look at many other countries, they are under enormous pressure. It is almost blackmail. Switzerland was forced to vote five times in a referendum. All five times they have rejected it, but who knows what will happen the sixth time, the seventh time. It is always the same thing. It is a trick for idiots. The people have to vote in referendums until the people vote the way that is wanted. Then they have to stop voting.
“Common European Home"Edit
“Mr President, I cannot tell you exactly when it will happen – probably within 15 years – but Europe is going to be a federal state and you have to prepare yourself for that. You have to work out with us, and the European leaders, how you would react to that, how would you allow the other Easteuropean countries to interact with it or how to become a part of it, you have to be prepared.” -- Giscard d’Estaing in January of 1989, during a meeting of a delegation of the Trilateral Commission with Gorbachev.
This was January 1989, at a time when the  Maastricht treaty had not even been drafted. How the hell did Giscard d’Estaing know what was going to happen in 15 years time?
And surprise, surprise, how did he become the author of the European constitution [in 2002-03]?
A very good question. It does smell of conspiracy, doesn’t it?
It first came up in 1985-86, when the Italian Communists visited Gorbachev, followed by the German Social-Democrats.
Politburo and Central Committee secret documents which have been classified show very clearly that the whole idea of turning the European common market into a federal state was agreed between the left-wing parties of Europe and Moscow as a joint project which [Soviet leader Mikhail] Gorbachev in 1988-89 called our “common European home.”
The Soviets came to a conclusion and to an agreement with the left-wing parties that if they worked together they could hijack the whole European project and turn it upside down. Instead of an open market they would turn it into a federal state.
In the East the Soviets needed a change of relations with Europe because they were entering a protracted and very deep structural crisis; in the West the left-wing parties were afraid of being wiped out and losing their influence and prestige. So it was a conspiracy, quite openly made by them, agreed upon, and worked out.
It is no accident that the European Parliament, for example, reminds me of the Supreme Soviet. It looks like the Supreme Soviet because it was designed like it. Similary, when you look at the European Commission it looks like the Politburo. I mean it does so exactly, except for the fact that the Commission now has 25 members and the Politburo usually had 13 or 15 members. Apart from that they are exactly the same, unaccountable to anyone, not directly elected by anyone at all.
When you look into all this bizarre activity of the European Union with its 80,000 pages of regulations it looks like Gosplan. We used to have an organisation which was planning everything in the economy, to the last nut and bolt, five years in advance. Exactly the same thing is happening in the EU.
When you look at the type of EU corruption, it is exactly the Soviet type of corruption, going from top to bottom rather than going from bottom to top.
If you go through all the structures and features of this emerging European monster you will notice that it more and more resembles the Soviet Union.
Of course, it is a milder version of the Soviet Union. Please, do not misunderstand me. I am not saying that it has a Gulag. It has no KGB – not yet – but I am very carefully watching such structures as Europol for example.That really worries me a lot because this organisation will probably have powers bigger than those of the KGB. They will have diplomatic immunity. Can you imagine a KGB with diplomatic immunity?
They will have to police us on 32 kinds of crimes – two of which are particularly worrying, one is called racism, another is called xenophobia. No criminal court on earth defines anything like this as a crime [this is not entirely true, as Belgium already does so – pb]. So it is a new crime, and we have already been warned.
Someone from the British government told us that those who object to uncontrolled immigration from the Third World will be regarded as racist and those who oppose further European integration will be regarded as xenophobes.
