The Irish voting population has now, under great pressures, voted to accept the Lisbon Treaty. If the remaining holdouts: Poland and Czechoslovakia give in, which they are expected to do, the Treaty will go into effect on January 1, 2010.
"I am pleased the Lisbon Treaty has been approved by the Irish people. This will allow for a more united and efficient Europe that will be better able to defend the rights and interests of all the citizens and states of the European Union and play a greater role in the world. Today is an important day for Europe."
HOW IS IT RELATED TO THE PLAN FOR A CONSTITUTION?
A written Constitution Treaty for the EU was drafted and agreed by Europe's leaders in June 2004. Tony Blair, the prime minister of the day, promised Britons a referendum on the text, to be the first popular British vote on Europe since 1975. But the original text was dropped after voters in France and the Netherlands rejected it in two referendums. The British vote was cancelled.
Two years later most of the Constitution's provisions were resurrected in the Lisbon Treaty, a document critics say is as much of a threat to national sovereignty as the old text would have been. In one of his first major decisions as prime minister, Gordon Brown broke Mr Blair's promise to hold a referendum on the new treaty.
WHEN DOES IT COME INTO EFFECT?
The treaty is intended to come into effect from the beginning of next year, but cannot do so unless all 27 member states have separately ratified it - making it binding by introducing its provisions into national law.
Even after the Irish "Yes" vote, two countries have yet to complete the formalities. Parliaments in both Poland and the Czech Republic have already approved the necessary legislation, but neither country's president has yet signed it.
In Poland, President Lech Kaczynski, an Tory-style Eurosceptic whose party is no longer in command of the parliament, is has been delaying his signing in the hope that Ireland would reject the treaty. He objects to the treaty because Poland will face a reduction in its votes on councils of ministers, while Germany gains.
Even so, he is widely expected now to sign within days.
Vaclav Klaus, the Czech president, who fears that the treaty tips the balance of sovereignty towards a European superstate, is more likely to continue to hold things up.
Defying both chambers of the Czech parliament, Mr Klaus has been accused of gambling with his country's economic future to make a minority political point.
Right-wing Czech senators, with links to the Tories, have lodged objections to the treaty with their country's constitutional court. The court may take between two and eight months to rule on them - giving Mr Klaus, egged on by his British and Czech supporters, the excuse to string things out.
Even so, Czech ministers have briefed EU officials that Mr Klaus will cave in and sign before the end of this year, enabling the treaty to enter into legal force in January.
I think I just heard the last tumbler in the lock

The world has changed quickly, and quietly
but fundamentally and thoroughly, over night
and it was all done by guile and craft.
I think you're right on the money Constance.
And still, very few in this country seem to recognize his name. That's stealthy.
Is this a metaphor for our modern world, so complex that it can hardly be understood?
Guess it's time for the old folks home. But I can't afford the old folks home, can anyone?
"Now, some claim that the United Nations can best protect the freedom of religion by adopting what is called an “anti-defamation” policy that would restrict the freedom of expression and the freedom of religion. I, obviously, strongly disagree. An individual’s ability to practice their religion should have no bearing on others individuals’ freedom of speech. The protection of speech about religion is particularly important since persons of different faiths will inevitably hold divergent views on religious questions. And these differences should be met with tolerance, not suppression of discourse. And the United States will stand against the idea of defamation of religion in the United Nations General Assembly and the Human Rights Council. (Applause.)"
Would like to hear from Rich of Medford on this one.
October 2, 2009--a day which will live in infamy. The European Union moves from a confederation to a legal federation with self-amending powers, huge swaths of additional policy control, and the ability to call upon all member states' military and civilian assets.
On top of that, under the new treaty, a member cannot legally leave until two years after it declares it wants to leave AND the EU Council must discuss and approve.
since it contains the Crown, which is the Central Bank of all Central Banks.
Are they in the EU ? Yes.
Do they use the Euro? No.

LISBON TREATY "GUARANTEES" USELESS - VOTE NO IN OCTOBER, 2009
VOTE ‘NO’ to Lisbon Two!
“Ní hea, No, Nein, Non, Nyet, Nope, Not, No Means No …”
What part of that don’t they understand ?
On Thursday , 12th June 2008 , a vote was held in this State on the Lisbon Constitution/Treaty : for months beforehand we were repeatedly told by the political ‘establishment’ in Leinster House that that what we were being asked to vote on was “non-negotiable” , that we had to vote on it as it then stood , that it was legally impossible to have anything removed from it or inserted into it. Now that same political ‘establishment’ are asking us to believe that not only was it possible to change that Treaty , but that they had managed to do so to the “benefit” of this State’s position within the EU !
However - Czech prime minister Jan Fischer, who chaired a meeting on the supposed ‘new Irish Lisbon Treaty’ (as his country presently holds the EU presidency) was questioned (on Friday 19th June 2009) on these ‘Irish changes’ and dismissed them as nothing of the sort : “The protocol (”changes”) will clarify but not change either the content or the application of the treaty of Lisbon. It is an explanatory clarifying text which changes not a dot nor comma of the Lisbon Treaty.”
What has actually been ‘achieved’ by those idiots in Leinster House is a promise (”guarantee”) from the bigger political fatcats in Brussels that , at some time in the future, they might look at making a few amendments to the way the Lisbon Two Treaty affects this State! And Brian Cowan and his equally useless cabal of semi-political misfits were never going to get “changes to the Lisbon Treaty” due to the fact that Poland , Holland , Austria , Sweden and Britain used their combined ‘weight’ to ‘lean’ on Brussels , stating that if the Irish were to be offered a new Treaty then they , too , would expect the same offer to be made to them - so a compromise was agreed : Brussels would allow Cowan to claim that a “new Treaty” for the Irish was on offer but , at the same time , made it clear to Cowan that what they were offering was a promise that , if passed this time, they would perhaps - at some future date - take a look at the manner in which the Treaty affected this State. And please have no doubt that that is all that is on offer here - a promise from corrupt millionaire politicians in Brussels that they will , someday , give a curious glance over their well-padded shoulder at the way their tax laws are effecting finances in this State.
Don’t be fooled by them - VOTE NO TO LISBON 2 in October 2009 .
“The meeting and dinner heard how Ireland’s “intellectual mediocrity and lack of political courage” led to the rejection of the Lisbon treaty and included discussions of how to “cuddle and pamper” the Irish voter ahead of a new vote while at the same time “making pressures on them”.
This video gives an apt description of the type of morally and politically corrupt politician and system that are now demanding we vote ‘the right way’ on the already failed Lisbon Treaty. And this video shows what those bent career politicians stand to loose if we don’t vote the way they want us to . As Republican Sinn Féin have stated - “The decision to re-run the referendum on the rejected Lisbon Treaty in the 26-Counties next October represents an attempt to subvert the sovereign will of the people. All kinds of pressure is being applied to those allowed to vote to ensure that they arrive at the result Brian Cowen and the EU ‘élite’ demand…..”...read more....
Gee. Weren't the Czech Republic and Poland the countries Obama recently reneged on with regard to the Missile Defense System agreements???
The power rests in with the foreign minister position.
Remember, unlike the U.S. (where there is one supreme executive), the EU is a parliamentary system with two supremes (head of government and head of state). In the EU's case power is largely vested in whoever will fill the seat Solana is retiring from (that is unless Solana is reappointed).
Other interesting videos on there too.
The EU Presidency will be essentially POWERLESS. The real power resides with the FOREIGN MINISTER. Javier Solana has long since been designated to have the position once the new Constitution / Lisbon Treaty was in effect. In July, Solana said he intended to retire and not seek a third five year term. He has made similar statements in the past and not followed through.
Whether Solana (and I suspect he may not retire) or his successor in the immense powers he has carved out for the office, it will be the FOREIGN MINISTER and not any EU President (whether Tony Blair, Balkenende, Felipe Gonzalez or another) who will set the direction.
Right now, I'm suspecting that excuses will be found to keep Solana on, but then again, who knows?
I responded to "A WATCHMAN ON THE WALL" and then saw that you had already made the point. Thanks!
Thanks for the tinyurl link on the GLOBAL ONENESS Project. I note with interest the strong IONS (Institute of Noetic Sciences) and Lucis Trust links. IONS has given large recent grants to DUANE ELGIN for his work and MARY EVELYN TUCKER is a shameless proponent for a forced "New World Religion."
"It [the commission's mandate] can be prolonged after 1 November. It has happened on earlier occasions. One should also keep in mind that the high representative, who we have for the time being, [Javier] Solana, has a mandate that expires on 17 October. So also in his case there could be a continuation."
Interesting weeks ahead for us.
after Belgium here what I read about the flu.
link : Tiny url :
the article is longer and has links
"On Saturday I gave a talk in the Volkshaus in Zürich, Switzerland, about the dangers of the „swine flu“ vaccine, noting that taking the toxic jab can be made compulsory under the Swiss national pandemic plan and also the International Health Regulations (IHR) 2005, which came into force on June 15th, 2007.
Just how real the threat of forced vaccination is in Switzerland was brought home to us all when one of the people who came to the Volkshaus showed us a letter from the Swiss military calling them up to work for the Swiss army medical corps between November 11th and 31st in order to "assist" with the „swine flu“ pandemic.
It appears that about 200 reserve officers are to be called up for 3 weeks of preparation for the "swine flu" pandemic in a first wave and then reserve soldiers in a second wave in December.
The use of soldiers or police in a forced vaccination or quarantine campaign is allowed under the Swiss pandemic plan and WHO's IHR.
The Swiss army has already taken control of stocks of the „swine flu“ vaccine, and is preparing to distribute them to special vaccine centres.
"According to vaccination plans, the central registers of all the people who live in a particular canton will be used to get every single person Switzerland to go to the vaccine centers at a specific time and place where they will be forced to take the vaccine, which will almost certainly contain microchips as well as toxins, so will be tagged and controlled by WHO and the Rockefeller/Rothschild international banking cartel that funds them for the rest of your life even if you are not damaged by the vaccine."
I knew there was a trick since I asked if the vaccinations could be obligatory (during a training on the flu) and the person started to say yes than stop it.
It's already started in China and Australia.
But at church they still believe that the rapture will come before!
I'm very upset but remember that Jesus told us not to be troubled.
"Remember, unlike the U.S. (where there is one supreme executive), the EU is a parliamentary system with two supremes (head of government and head of state). In the EU's case power is largely vested in whoever will fill the seat Solana is retiring from (that is unless Solana is reappointed)."
Almost as if he was unable to perform a task unless he was in the presence of the 1st -
Not saying there would ne be a consideration for it to tael place but it can not be put out there without evidence, please.
Remember - the acceptance of the mark will accompany the worship (freely or otherwise in whatever format) of the beast.
Verichip/"digital angel" is very much in on the "swine flu" "detection/epidemic" scene.

MKs launch new alliance with European parliaments
Seeking to combat a perceived growing anti-Israel trend in Europe, Knesset leaders have joined a new alliance intended to strengthen ties with European parliaments.
Funded by wealthy patrons within European Jewish circles, the alliance is seeking to lower the rhetorical temperature on the Palestinian issue and heighten awareness of a potential Iranian nuclear threat, which has been downplayed by many European leaders.
Last week, the lobbying group European Friends of Israel (EFI) launched the European Forum of the Knesset, a coalition spearheaded by MK Yohanan Plesner (Kadima) with the blessing of Knesset Speaker Reuven Rivlin (Likud)....read more....

VeriChip partners with Microsoft HealthVault
Monday, November 24, 2008 in News
Verichip Corporation, in the news in the last couple of weeks due to stock-related excitement, now offers some operational news. The company, makers of the FDA-approved implantable RFID chip, has announced a partnership with Microsoft HealthVault, an online depository of personal health records.
Microsoft HealthVault offers users a format to organize personal health records, share selected information with health care providers and family members, and connect with other health-related sites to get medical information and reach health goals.
Users of VeriMed Health Link system, which includes the implantable chip, will now be able to export the system’s information to the HealthVault site.
(Jeff Jones tried to reconstitute the SDS just two years ago)
The article reads:
The organizers described the board as “remarkable for its diversity”.....
Considering that the self-confessed witch named Starhawk is one of the board members, and her affiliation with Van Jones (no relation to Jeff), I guess I can't argue with that description of the new MDS board!
Some are saying that the plan is to 'change' our DNA.
I think that the Mark of the Beast is dependent upon the worship of the Beast. You have to worship the Beast to qualify for the Mark of the Beast.
Your worship of the Beast will somehow be registered - like logging on on the Internet to a specific website possibly named "Beastsite" followed by clicking on the circle nominated for "I accept".
1. Worshipping the beast;
2. Identifying with a person/system that is anti-God;
3. The abandonment of traditional Christianity in favor of some "One World Religion".
If someone ends up with the Mark, they either never belonged to God in the first place, or made a terrible choice by rejecting the Life they had for eternal death.
There are a lot of scary things coming up, but "accidentally" taking the Mark should not be one of things we worry about. Keep an eye on the technology, certainly, so you can warn your unsaved friends, but worry?? Not me!
Because God has endowed man with the gift of free will, the degree of any sin is always proportionate to the degree of freedom with which any man has sinned.
Apocalyptic passages of
Scripture are usually mysterious and difficult to understand.
While it is always possible that the "mark of the beast" could be a literal mark, the Church Fathers have suggested that the "mark of the beast" could be symbolic with the "mark of the beast" on the forehead signifying the things a person chooses to believe or disbelieve and the "mark of the beast" on the right hand signifying how a person chooses to act.
Even though Protestants do not recognize the books of the Maccabees as conoical, they nevertheless recognize them as apocryphal and inspirational.
In the Books of the Maccabees we have the story of the person who was definitely a type of the antichrist....namely, Antiochus IV Epiphanes.
There is also a story in the Second Book of Maccabees which takes place during the persecution under Antiochus IV Epiphanes and which embodies what it means to wear "the mark of the beast" on one's forehead or on one's right hand.
It is the story of a highly respected scribe named Eleazar and it reads thus:
4 Eleazar, one of the foremost scribes, a man of advanced age and noble appearance, was being forced to open his mouth to eat pork.
But preferring a glorious death to a life of defilement, he spat out the meat, and went forward of his own accord to the instrument of torture,
as men ought to do who have the courage to reject the food which it is unlawful to taste even for love of life.
Those in charge of that unlawful ritual meal took the man aside privately, because of their long acquaintance with him, and urged him to bring meat of his own providing, such as he could legitimately eat, and to pretend to be eating some of the meat of the sacrifice prescribed by the king;
in this way he would escape the death penalty, and be treated kindly because of their old friendship with him.
But he made up his mind in a noble manner, worthy of his years, the dignity of his advanced age, the merited distinction of his gray hair, and of the admirable life he had lived from childhood; and so he declared that above all he would be loyal to the holy laws given by God. He told them to send him at once to the abode of the dead, explaining:
"At our age it would be unbecoming to make such a pretense; many young men would think the ninety-year-old Eleazar had gone over to an alien religion.
Should I thus dissimulate for the sake of a brief moment of life, they would be led astray by me, while I would bring shame and dishonor on my old age.
Even if, for the time being, I avoid the punishment of men, I shall never, whether alive or dead, escape the hands of the Almighty.
Therefore, by manfully giving up my life now, I will prove myself worthy of my old age,
and I will leave to the young a noble example of how to die willingly and generously for the revered and holy laws." He spoke thus, and went immediately to the instrument of torture.
Those who shortly before had been kindly disposed, now became hostile toward him because what he had said seemed to them utter madness.
When he was about to die under the blows, he groaned and said: "The Lord in his holy knowledge knows full well that, although I could have escaped death, I am not only enduring terrible pain in my body from this scourging, but also suffering it with joy in my soul because of my devotion to him."
This is how he died, leaving in his death a model of courage and an unforgettable example of virtue not only for the young but for the whole nation.
2 Maccabees 19-31
Some of our politicians who justify their evil pro abortion votes by saying that they are "personally opposed but...." should read the story of Eleazar lest they continue to wear the "mark of the beast" on THEIR right hand by their ACTIONS.
Because the Book of Revelations tells us that the punishment will be the same for those who wear the "mark of the beast" on their foreheads OR on their right hand.
To act contrary to one's beliefs is called "dissembling" in the Bible and it is the equivalent of lying!
Even though Protestants do not recognize the books of the Maccabees as conoical,
I meant to write
Even though Protestants do not recognize the books of the Maccabees as canonical,
I suspect the present administration recognizes they are being watched at this point. I would like to think my youtube video was a consideration in framing her remarks cautiously.
If you believe what the Gospel says, there is a line you cannot cross as a believer. It is not possible. Some may argue with me and I'm open to destroying your arguments regarding this matter.
It is most important that we have our salvation to rest upon. Without that assurance we have nothing and that assurance is clearly provided from Genesis to Revelation.
Wow - a love fest if I ever heard one -
