Ministers ponder creation of EU super-president
EU Observer ^ | 20.04.12 @ 09:16 | Andrew Rettman

Ideas kicking around in a reflection group of select EU foreign ministers include merging the roles of the EU Council and European Commission presidents.

A senior EU source told this website following a meeting of the club in the Val Duchesse stately home in Brussels on Thursday (19 April) that the new supremo would have more power than either Herman Van Rompuy or Jose Manuel Barroso do today but also more "democratic legitimacy" because he or she would be elected by MEPs.

In other reforms, the new figure would "streamline" the European Commission into a two-tier structure.

Every EU country would still have its own commissioner with their own vote in the college of 27 top officials. But as in some national set-ups, some commissioners would have more than one dossier while others would be the equivalent of ministers without portfolio.

The new super-president would also chair General Affairs Councils (GACs)—monthly meetings of foreign ministers which discuss internal Union affairs. …

The "super-president" being elected by the Members of the European Parliament would thereby have "more democratic legitimacy"? Yeah, tell us another one, EU. What kind of country would the USA be if you had congressmen and senators elect the POTUS, and even worse, only the POTUS could initiate legislation and sign it into law?

Will his title be “The anti-Christ” or would that be a little obvious?

Maybe “Therion” on top of “Antichristos”.

Isn’t that how it used to be in the US (legislators electing the US President)?

But yeah, bad idea, but then again I want the EU to be consigned to the dustbin of history anyway...

I don’t know if he will be the AC or the false prophet or some other forerunner.

He is certainly likely to be right up there at or near the top and preparing the way at the very least.

Ex Terrorist Walid Shoebat & Joel Richardson make a strong case in GOD’S WAR ON TERROR

that the AC will be a Muslim . . . that the Ezekiel 38 etc wars are all with Muslim nations etc.

I think he makes some very valid points. I think the globalists are intent on destroying Islam at some point, probably after using it to shred Christianity et al . . .

Time will tell . . . evidently not that much of it left . . .

And Tony Blair asked for that job - he works directly for The Quartet - trying to divide Israel for “peace”.

The goal of “The Tony Blair Foundation”.

Blair is also a huge proponent of the AC’s One World Ecumenical religion.

Reading this book right now. Very insightful and though~provoking read. I believe Mr. Shoebat knows what he's talking about.

“...the AC will be a Muslim...”

He’s in The White Crib/Hut, right now.

One of my friends agrees with you.

I don’t think so.

He’s tooooo evil in his background.

I think the AC will come on the scene in more white-washed white robes of pretend righteousness . . . OThuga has too much baggage to fill the role. I think he’s definitely a forerunner.

I don’t think he could even compete for the role of false prophet, however.

He certainly has a lot of extensive research to back up his assertions. Most ring true. Some seem over-wrought.

Am about 1/3 through it.

I’ll defer to you, Quix. You are better informed on this, than I.

THANKS FOR YOUR KIND WORDS AND REPLY.

However,

deferring to my opinions about much of anything can be exceedingly hazardous . . . particularly in some contexts.

I certainly see through the glass quite dimly.

I just think OThuga is far too much of a bad apple reared as a bad apple and a very clumsy, goofy one, at that.

I think that the AC will be a FAR WORSE DESTROYER though Othuga is plenty bad enough.

Yet, I think the AC will come on the scene as a man of peace and wonderful looking and sounding salvation for the planet.

OThuga can’t even walk his dog properly. Only the worshipful psychophants think he can do much of anything right.

Just doesn’t sound like the Biblical AC, to me.

Yet, a friend insists that God told him OThuga was the evil one. I think he heard wrong.

“I just think OThuga is far too much of a bad apple reared as a bad apple and a very clumsy, goofy one, at that.”

I think you might be vastly-underestimating him. He knows exactly what Soros and he are doing, as he takes his explicit marching orders to continue destroying this Republic.

“Yet, I think the AC will come on the scene as a man of peace and wonderful looking and sounding salvation for the planet.”

That’s exactly what he did in 2007-08, with “Hope & Change”, “Racial Harmony”, “Fundamental Change”, Everybody Prospers” etc etc etc. Some of us knew *who he really was* and *what he was really saying*.

The 52% who put him in The White Crib/Hut, had no clue or didn’t care, as their “white guilt” and “financial reparations appetite” made them vote for him.

We’re all paying the price, now, and will for decades to come. A lot of what he’s done, can’t be undone any time soon. And some, can never be undone.

JMO.

I think that was

a dry run of some of the memes and strategies, mechanisms.

. . . at 1/4th volume and 15-20% the sophistication to come with the real deal.

I don’t even want to think about what happens on Nov 7th, if he’s re-elected.

that the AC will be a Muslim

Such an occurrence would be an interesting answer to the question "Why, in the book of revelation, wouldn't we hear of scads of people (who we know now in 2012 as Moose-limbs) all going ballistic to counter the blasphemous to Islam claim that the AC is 'god' ?"

From this point of view, the AC would likely be the 12th imam or somesuch.

Cheers!

YUP.

More hypocrisy from Islam that decries Christianity for calling Christ God . . .

yet they say “Peace Be upon Him” after every mention of Muhammed’s name . . . which in the Arabic . . . means God Almighty is praying TO Muhammed.

What rank hypocrisy.
