EU Joint Debate on European Neighbourhood Policy

There was evidently a major speech in the European Parliament yesterday (March 10th) regarding the European Neighbourhood Policy, a 7 year project close to mid-term. It officially began January 1, 2007. The transcript I read did not name the speaker. I am endeavoring to find out who was speaking. I suspect it was Catherine Ashton. I further suspect she did it with very sophisticated help -- perhaps even from Javier Solana. It named all the familiar projects that Herb Peters and I started following from the time the project was first proposed.

Excerpting from the speech:

EU: Joint Debate On Foreign And Security Policy

European Parliament

Strasbourg, 10 March 2010

I am delighted to be with you to discuss the big questions on Europe's international agenda.

Let me begin by thanking Mr. Albertini and Mr. Danjean for their excellent reports. You have underlined the number, range and urgency of the challenges we face.

From strengthening the rule of law in Kosovo to working with the emerging powers to share responsibility for global governance. From promoting peace in the Middle East – and I join US Vice President Joe Biden in condemning the Israeli decision to build 1600 new houses in East Jerusalem –, to providing shelter to the surviving victims of Haiti’s earthquake. From dealing with proliferation problems such as Iran, to devising effective answers to "new" challenges such as energy, climate and cyber-security.

Europe is going through a phase of building something new. Where people have to adjust their mental maps and institutions have to find their new place.

Doing so is messy and complicated. But also exciting. For it is impossible to over-state just how important this moment is.

Right now we have a chance to build what many across Europe – and many in this House – have long wanted: a stronger, more credible European foreign policy.

Of course the European External Action Service will be key to deliver this. We have to build a system that is robust; that will enable us to deal better with the problems of today and new problems that will arise tomorrow.

For years, we have been trying to frame and implement comprehensive strategies. But the structures and systems we had, made this difficult. With the Lisbon Treaty and the EEAS we should be able to achieve this.

Two things jumped out at me. I'm not sure what Catherine Ashton's tenure will be. She has recently taken on a past key aide to Javier Solana as one of her main advisers. She and Javier Solana are both long time activists in European Socialist circles. However, it does appear from the tenor of her speech that Israel's prospects for renewal of the 2nd half of the 7 year treaty it entered into as part of the European Neighbourhood Policy are not particularly bright given the negative references to it in the above speech. Whether this is it or not, I don't know. The times are in God's hands.

Javier Solana may not PRESENTLY be there, but his policy creations clearly are.

Stay tuned!


There is precedent for cutting Israel off. The European Neighbourhood Policy has recently announced that Belarus will not be getting aid for the 2nd half of the program because of "human rights violations."

For the first half of the program, Israel was allotted %6 million (6 million Euros).


More info on moneys planned for those going into second phase:

European Neighbourhood Policy increases funding

"The EU said it will give over €5.7bn in aid to 19 neighbours over the next three years to reinforce political cooperation and promote economic integration between the EU and its neighbours.
"The aid will go to support political and economic reforms, regional and cross-border cooperation in the partner countries covered by the European Neighbourhood and Partnership Instrument (ENPI). It will also support projects in areas like climate change, transport, energy and environment. EU neighbours will receive more than €2bn in 2013, compared with €1.6bn in 2010."

Speech was Catherine Ashton's per this official EU source:

Here is a summary of the proposed program when it was being put in place. This summary is by a "Ted Montgomery."

Anon 8:36,

Well, if it isn't Mr. limits to free speech on the internet Sunstein. Interesting to see him in the midst of a localized push for data integration, especially with his history in economics.

In reading your latest information here, a thought occured to me. Given Javier's recent role expansion over at Centre for Humanitarian Development, he is now in a better position to request a forced two state solution of the UN. Given that he also helped structure the ENP, could we see a combination of both Israel being cut off, while a final solution is imposed on the nation, all of which could stem from his recommendations?
Anon 8:36,

Given Sunstein's involvement, I though I might take a look and how at your local level this may have played into some of the work I have been doing.

One important piece in the article I posted I would like to point out, Accenture is a provider of microcredit loans.

Here is a Columbus based blogger, that will give you a better idea of the cross operations between some of these groups and the RFID agenda.

Wasn't the Alliance of Civilizations introduced in Ohio August 2009 at some business forum? Was it Cleveland?

I was honestly not aware of this, so I decided to check and yes you are correct.

7th Annual Dialogue Dinner - 2009

The theme of this year’s dinner was “The Alliance of Civilizations.” Congresswoman Jean Schmidt accepted our invitation to be the keynote speaker. We also had the honor of having Mustafa Ozbayrak, an elected Turkish parliamentarian whose assembly own the idea of “Alliance of Civilizations” and work hard to promote peace in the world. Dr. Huseyin Coskun of the Ohio State University gave his perspective on the Alliance of Civilizations with a local flavor.

The annual program’s scope was extended with a new addition: Dialogue Awards. SEF will give annual dialogue awards to the individuals and organizations whose hard work and leadership contributes to the diversity and multiculturalism of our society. The four categories that awards were presented tonight are Excellence in Dialogue 1) in Academic Environment, 2) in Media and Broadcasting 3) in Education, and 4) Among Religious Institutions. The recipients are:

Professors Barbara Finan of Ohio Dominican University and Paul Numrich of Methodist Theological School in Ohio – Academic Environment
WOSU – Media and Broadcasting
Multicultural Center at OSU – Education
St. Thomas More Newman Catholic Center – Religious Institutions

In a different category, SEF also presented a dialogue award for a SEF volunteer for his hard work and contribution to the cause of Scioto Educational Foundation. While we strive to organize these events, our members play a major role. We honor a member each year for his or her contributions to the dialogue by actively getting involved in every dimension of our foundation's work. This year's award for Scioto Educational Foundation Volunteer Award was presented to Mr. Oguz Kurt.

The dinner was sponsored by the following organizations and institutions in alphabetic order: Agape Global Church Ministries, Broad Street United Methodist Church, Capital University, Columbus Metropolitan Area Churches Council, Columbus Sufi Circle, Ebru TV, The Fountain Magazine, St. Francis of Assisi Catholic Church, the Good News- Christian Ecumenical Magazine TV Program, The Martin De Porres Center, Multicultural Center at OSU, St. Thomas More Newman Center, Niagara Foundation, Ohio Dominican University, The Port Columbus Interfaith Services, Students for Dialog at OSU, Somali Women & Children's Alliance, Spiritual Sadhna Society, St Stephen's Episcopal Church, St. Andrew Parish, and University Interfaith Association at OSU.

It appears to me that many of these groups and goals are heavily represented in the Buckeye state. I would appreciate any first hand input from our friends there that have any knowledge on any of these groups, such as Central Ohio Sustainability Alliance or Scioto Educational Foundation.
Of course my home state of Michigan is far from devoid of AoC presence. Such as this AoC forum held in 2009.

I wonder if they have scheduled one yet for this year? I would be interested in observing one of these at the local level first hand.
Thanks for looking into the Buckeye New World Order folks. Practically nobody pays any attention to this stuff. Years ago Columbus had an annual New Age convention headed up by Carl Japikse. A graduate of Bexley High School. He lived near me at the time. Later he moved to Georgia. He is still in business and comes here periodically for his "seances". He publishes books via Ariel Press and his non-profit organization, LIGHT, affords him many opportunities. He had/has school teachers and college teachers in his "classes" and a local atty. and his wife are groupies. Quite an interesting situation.
Anon 5:24,

I am very interested to see how many of the things I have been looking at are being pushed and implemented at the local level. I actually owe you a bit of thanks for bringing this to my attention, as it has been eye opening.

I have sent you some information on Saito in a email.

Interesting site.
'Hated Israel will be annihalated'

The Palestinians and the nations of the Middle East will be rid of a “bad omen” once Israel is annihilated, Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad said on Thursday, in a speech communicated by Press TV.

Israel, a foreign presence and a “Western prodigy” in the region, had “reached the end of its road,” Ahmadinejad told supporters in southern Iran.

This is an excerpt of an article in the Jerusalem Post. Iran has been making very threatening gestures towards Israel, including developing sophisticated weapons. I wonder how they managed to do all this all on they're own. Did they get any help?
Antisemitism is the canary in the
coal mine.
It's the first whiff of Fascism
every time Fascism begins to rear it's
ugly head anywhere in the world.
It didn't begin or end with WWII.
It goes back to Egypt and Babylon
and beyond.
Hitler was just one of a long list
of fascists who began by demonizing
the Jews.

Now Europe and this idiotic Union
is vilifying Israel and blaming the
Jews for defending itself against
those who want to snuff it out.
Every country on earth is in place
because someone defended it and
died for it, but Israel is supposed
just lay down and die. The rhetoric
from that Iranian rodent is
stupid to the point of nausea.
If America weren't so completely
dumbed down, he wouldn't even
be given a podium to speak from,
much less an audience.

The canary is dead. The poison is
rapidly rising up through the
The EU is Fascist to the core, but
no one seems to realize it yet.

Come quickly Lord Jesus.
Bad news. As you say Paul, "canary is dead".

Minority Report becoming a reality in Japan:

Face recognition technology in the advertisement.
Here's a recent "prophecy" of Bob Jones whose "words" are followed by IHOP, MorningStar (Rick Joyner, Todd Bentley) and others. This one is "out there" as Jones' stuff always is; but, you can see the Manifest Sons of God / New Age teachings through it:

Funny you posted this, I was looking at the developer of this technology per a request from Constance today. After getting a glimpse of what Hideo Saito has developed across the many aspects of this unfolding system, and the pieces I have been covering, I have to believe the timeline your link proposes may be modest to say the least. They have covered nearly all of the angles one could think of, all that is neccesary at this point is for a catalyst to thrust it onto the public.

Just discovered this blog recently and appreciate the info. This may be off subject - I was wondering if anyone out there keeps an eye on Sarkozy. He has had his hand in many things and if you dig a little beneath the headlines we can all see everyday - it is mindblowing what this guy is really responsible for. It was back in 2008 when he really caught my attention, and something in my gut has not let him out of my sight ever since. I am not claiming he is anyone specific - just think he is more than some crony taking orders.

From yesterday's local news, and then a search for the govt. dept. mentioned in article...just an interesting juxtaposition.
Last month we learned that the IRS was stockpiling tactical shotguns and other military type combat weapons.

This month it's the Department of Education buying combat weapons:

In light of that suicide plane crash into an IRS building, we can understand why the tax man would want to be able to defend himself from all those irate teapartiers.... However, while they can be used for defensive purposes, models like the Rem model 870 ultra short barreled (14.5") shotgun have been touted as the VERY BEST OFFENSIVE weapon by the soldiers tasked with going house to house to root out insurgents in Iraq.

It looks to me like our "civilian" Federal Agencies are just gearing up to be able to defend their offices in DC when the "you know what" hits the fan and the masses of people start marching on Washington. But then again, maybe not.

In the Dept. of Education's case, our educators could be preparing to enforce the new National Education Technology plan, which involves TRACKING EACH AND EVERY STUDENT IN A NATIONAL DATABASE. (JD take note). Again, this would imply an offensive use of the weapons, rather than defensive.

Hey, did somebody mention Google knowing our secrets:

Here's an excerpt:

"Google makes money by collecting mounds of data from and about users, and putting it to work by providing better products and ads that users are more likely to click on. So if all Google users prevented the company from logging their information, the search engine would be useless and the company wouldn't make money."

Note taken, in fact I had a conversation with Dennis Cuddy a few weeks ago about these very agencies and how they fit into the agenda. Dorothy has also recently sent some interesting information my way about data collection within the educational system. Interesting that they are now stockpiling scatter guns. This is surely a bad omen. These weapons are horrible for defensive applications as one can not realisticly control the spread of the projectiles. In a defensive situation it can't be predicted who might be in your line of fire, where as in raids they are used front line while your companions are safely behind you.

I know the IRS performs raids and tactical operations, but am now curious about the Department of Education and what precedent this may hold. Will they use this indoctrination department to perform raids when parents begin pulling their children from schools once the breadth of this system is in place? I mean, I know of truency officers, but this is ridiculous.

Yep, I am officially sick to my stomach. The National Education Technology Plan you pointed out has RFID and other information capture technologies at the core of the database you referenced. The horrifying part is I am seeing that some of this plan has been in the works since 2000, and has slowly been built up at a creeping pace. This really gives me more pause as to the idea of truency raids, as I could not help but notice the link you posted also references tactical combat training and body armor.
It certainly has been going on a long time. I didn't begin to appreciate the extent of The Plan until nearly 20 years ago. At that time there were already people like Cuddy, Berit Kjos, Charlotte Iserbyt and Lynn Stuter had been researching and writing about it then and that was the same time that I first began learning about Theosophy, Alice Bailey, New Agers, etc. When I saw how everything fit together it took my breath away. I couldn't learn fast enough. I read constantly. All these years later they are still moving along, having their way. Nothing has stopped them.
This is a warning to everyone. Through Facebook anyone can get all personal and public information on you that appears on the internet as Facebook links to .

Sometime back I attempted to privately warn others about News With Views. As a result deliberate lies about me were posted by supporters of News With Views on the internet without any ability to respond on my part. These responses were the top things that came up.

When Facebook says you can limit who sees your profile, forget it. It means very little.

Engaging Elementary Age Children as Service Leaders

They are savvy negotiators, open-minded risk-takers, and resourceful innovators. They also are tireless workers, ask hard questions, and care deeply about fairness. Who are we talking about Eight year olds. Yes, eight year olds and elementary school-age children in general who are still our invisible partners in improving communities."

About homosexuals in the army:

The New Age movement is a resurgence of Nazism. How clear does it have to become.

I agree with you Dorothy News With Views and Facebook is a trap waiting for its next victim, don't trust either of them.
Yes facebook, google and so on all collect information. Yet, we really have nothing to fear, for greater is He who is in us...
no reason to live in fear of these things. God will leads us on the path.
Let the ramifications of the following statement sink in, regarding the fate of privacy in America:

"As a social good, I think privacy is greatly overrated because privacy basically means concealment. People conceal things in order to fool other people about them. They want to appear healthier than they are, smarter, more honest and so forth."

I am interested in knowing about NWV. Considering how the writers featured at that site run the gamut in religious views. Well, maybe not the gamut but certainly a wide range. How do the NWV people gather information about people who visit their site or receive their daily offerings of articles?
Briefly glancing over the Education plan, they are fundamentally missing the boat in regards to ACTUAL education. First, if the goals are to teach kids to read or write, spending money on technology does very little to improve on the methods. My experience in homeschooling has already taught me that it is a slow process, one concept builds upon another, and you must address character issues as they come up. It has more to do with creating the proper atmosphere for learning, and having a teachable spirit. We've learned a lot and spent very little comparatively.

The goals they seem to want to put forth say enough "in between the lines". 60% of the population with a 2 or 4 year degree? Is that really necessary? That says to me we don't need farmers, builders, or artisans... or we're going to bring all trades under the college system... or we plan to over educate and have people with such severe student debt loads that they crumble from the payments when they can't find work. This does nothing to address "employment" as all these people will now be competing for jobs that they are all over-qualified for. Sorry if that sounds pessimistic...
Anony you have that right. Take Brazil for example. A large percentage of the population has advanced degrees but cannot do a thing with it. No granted there are many that are so poor they cannot even follow through with education cause need to get ways to get money to survive. But Brazil has many highly educated and selling sandwichs on the beach.
Todays New York Times says:

"The Federal Reserve played the
biggest role in rescuing the economy
from the financial crisis, a survey
of economists indicates."

WOW! Where to begin?
So the economy has been rescued !
That's great news, (that no one knows!)
And to think that it was the most
greedy, self-serving, cut-throat,
of all the cartels on earth that
rescued us. What a surprise!

Thank goodness for the
New York Times. Thank goodness for
those economystics.
And here I'd been under the
impressiion that we were in
big trouble.
Dear Paul,

It is not only Europe we have to worry about in terms of fascist encroachments upon our freedom. Check out the following posted at Breitbart Big Gov.


Yes Paul, all is well. Just take another prozac and don't worry about it. Think happy thoughts, hum your favorite tune, watch the shopping channel. Go back to sleep.

Don't know about you, but I can't wait to fill out my NCAA bracket. At least the tournament is still somewhat honest and pure. Shades of the Glass Bead game.

In any case....

Go Zags!

Fascism is just Communism in a
hurry, and Communism is just
Socialism in a hurry, and Obamism
is all the above in disguise.

But thanks for the link.

Gonzaga ? Maybe...

I read the Glass Bead Game so long ago
that I can't remember it. Herman Hesse ?
Now that you mention it, his books were
probably my first indoctrination in
the New Age; Buddhism being so
coool and smart and trendy in
the sixties, like it is now, with
Hesse being the "apostle" of it in
all his books. I remember Narsissus
and Goldmund and how the young
man in a seminary was portrayed as
backward, self centered and just
generally not as cool or smart as
his wild and "free" counterpart.
I thank the Lord for miraculously
leading me out of that "Egypt"
I agree with you about college
basketball, though. It might be
the last major sports event that
isn't rigged or at least tainted
by money, even though they're
all hoping to become pro$.

Hesse influenced me greatly in my youth, must be coming back to haunt me in my old age. I was just musing about how all this work, research, writing, observing, praying, sharing, is eerily similar to playing the Glass Bead game.

Here we are posting comments on this blog, like mini Magister Ludi's, making "deep connections between seemingly unrelated topics". I’m still not sure if all this knowledge is holding something back or bringing something into fruition. Or does it simply have no effect, no value, whatsoever?

Ecclesiastes 1:18 says, "For in much wisdom is much grief: and he that increaseth knowledge increaseth sorrow." Now I cannot judge what others have done or are doing with the knowledge they have gained. But truly, my own heart is exceedingly sorrowful, not because I'm so learned and wise, but because I know how unprepared I am for the days ahead. I am fearful for my children. Maybe I need to RE-imagine a different reality. Maybe I need to become a pre-tribber and not worry about anything. Maybe I need to start taking prozac. I don't know.

I do know that the whole point of Hesse's greatest novel was to bring us to Joseph Knecht's rather abrupt death. In theory, one can learn to swim without ever entering the water. But Knecht drowned because he was not fit to swim. A "master" of THE game, he couldn't even dog paddle across a small lake.

Sorry for getting carried away. Please excuse the ramblings of an old fool.

The Zags should win the first one. But the 'cuze will make round two very difficult.

It is one heck of a game.
Just now turned on my office TV, CNN. Just now covering Benjamin Netanyahu saying that he is now the world's "most embattled politician."
