 French/German Military Treaty

Merkel says Franco-German treaty
a step towards European army

President Emmanuel Macron and Chancellor Merkel signed the deal, which pledges deeper economic and defence ties as well as commitment to the EU, in the German city of Aachen.

The French presidency said it was an "important moment" for showing the relationship was "a bedrock which can relaunch itself ... in the service of reinforcing the European project".

"We're seeing an existential crisis in terms of European integration, with Brexit and the expected strengthening of nationalists at the next European elections," said Claire Demesmay, a political scientist at German research institute DGAP.

It also includes a "mutual defence clause" in the event of one of them being attacked, although they are already committed to this as members of NATO.
"Populism and nationalism are strengthening in all of our countries," Merkel told French, German and European officials gathered in Aachen's town hall.

Citing Britain's departure from the European Union and the growing protectionist tendencies around the world, Merkel noted that international cooperation is going through a rocky time.

"Seventy-four years, a single human lifetime after the end of World War II, what seems self-evident is being called into question again," she said. "That's why, first of all, there needs to be a new commitment toward our responsibility within the European Union, a responsibility held by Germany and France."

"We assume the commitment to develop a common military culture, common defence industry, a common line for arms exports. Thus, we want to contribute to the formation of a European army", Merkel said.

The renewed Elysee Treaty also focuses on Franco-German defense cooperation and the fight against terrorism — and here, the countries have already come a long way. A joint military unit, the Franco-German Brigade, was created in 1989. It has, however, lost some of its significance in recent years, and plays no major role in the countries' day-to-day military routines.

Moving from visions to concrete defense projects has always been difficult because of the nations' diverging philosophies: The French are more likely to opt for intervention, while the Germans are very reluctant on the military stage. That should improve, however, as Germany and France have pledged assistance — including military assistance — "in the event of an armed attack" on one of the two countries.

The European Union is moving towards an EU army despite repeated assurances down the years that such a scenario would never happen.

Macron continues to pursue globalist policies despite his popularity sinking to a paltry 23% and France being beset by violent protests for almost two months.

The signing of the treaty solidifies Angela Merkel’s commitment to globalism.

During an event aimed at combating populism entitled Parliamentarism in the Tension of Globalization and National Sovereignty last year, the German chancellor brazenly said that “nation-states should be willing to give up their sovereignty today” and this should be done via an “orderly process”.
The Aachen treaty calls for closer work - in defence and the economy, as well as cultural integration, however it has been met with dismay from politicians on both sides of the border.

Labelled as 'high treason' by one French MEP and labelled as a 'Macron-money grab' by Alexander Gauland from the AfD - the agreement is supposedly designed to inspire greater unity in a fracturing Europe.

The treaty calls for cabinet meetings between politicians from both countries at least four times a year as well as coordinated defence projects. it also stipulates French support for Germany sharing its seat at the UN Security Council.

Refugee policy appears not to have been specifically addressed, however.
A number of Yellow Vest protesters from Germany gathered, with one, Henrik, telling Sky News, “We are here to protest against Macron and Merkel because of the way they are changing Europe.

“This is not the idea of Europe. Europe is an economic platform that everyone can work together with — not the kind of Europe where leaders [tell us what to do].

“Countries have the right to say they want this or that, but not Europe.”

“I am against the way Europe is going right now. It’s not the way democracy works,” Henrik added.

Marine Le Pen, the leader of France’s National Rally party, accused Macron of “an act that borders on treason”, while Alexander Gauland, of Germany’s Alternative für Deutschland (AfD) said Paris and Berlin were trying to create a “super EU” within the bloc.

“As populists, we insist that one first takes care of one’s own country,” Gauland said. “We don’t want Macron to renovate his country with German money … The EU is deeply divided. A special Franco-German relationship will alienate us even further.”

Italy’s far-right interior minister, Matteo Salvini, said earlier this month that he intended to challenge the text’s pro-European message, and indeed the whole idea of a “Franco-German motor”, with a Eurosceptic “Italian-Polish axis”.

A Government of Socialists
Brace for the most bizarre government that Congress has ever seen in your lifetime. The Democrats installed a band of untested novices bent on adopting a socialist utopia. The House of Representatives has become a chamber of horrors that only libtard groupies could embrace and the Senate reflects the bluest of blue from metropolis and the coastal cultures. The gangland underworld families that make up the Deep State and are controlled by the Shadow Government elites have shifted tactics for electing the next generation of Federal legislators.

Digital Data is a Mortal Risk
The tech culture would have you believe that the digital format has produced untold innovations and advancements for personal development, societal advancement and business innovations. Well, the glass is half full for the kool aide drinkers, but for the mere mortals, who seek out a meaningful life as opposed to a regimented existence, the curse of placing the most intimate data on untold hard drives and shuffled among unknown servers, a loss of simple privacy is the least of the problems.

Somewhere along the line in recent history, some US think tank in the employ of the Central Intelligence Agency must have come up with the idea that overthrowing governments in Latin America by military coups came with bad optics for the coup plotters. Often, democratically-elected Latin American leaders were demonized by a cabal of military […]

Independent news releases from TRT World and BBC reports both support this author’s January 3, paper: “Israelis Shoots to Cripple and Maim in Gaza.” Both pointed out that Israeli snipers shoot largely unarmed Palestinians at will, from such point-blank range that the shooter, if competent, can choose whether each victim is to be wounded or […]

My preference was for President Trump to have declared a national emergency on 19 January 2019, and then ordered the U.S. military and the Corps of Engineers to immediately complete the construction of an effective wall along the entire length of the southern border. Indeed, if such a declaration was likely to have been hamstrung […]

“As more and more data flows from your body and brain to the smart machines via the biometric sensors, it will become easy for corporations and government agencies to know you, manipulate you, and make decisions on your behalf. Even more importantly, they could decipher the deep mechanisms of all bodies and brains, and thereby […]

Appalled by the Brexit vote, these elites played a waiting game, broadcasting warnings of what could happen, to panic the British public into reconsidering and reversing its democratic decision. Losing candidates and losing parties accept defeat and yield power. Establishments have agendas they do not regard as subject to electoral repudiation or repeal. Defeated, they […]


Nancy Pelosi has behaved so irrationally & has gone so far to the left that she has now officially become a Radical Democrat,” Mr. Trump said. “She is so petrified of the ‘lefties’ in her party that she has lost control …

Mr. Trump noted that Democrats, including Mrs. Pelosi, turned down his offer even before he made his televised speech, saying that they “don’t see crime & drugs, they only see 2020 — which they are not going to win.”

In response, BuzzFeed editor in chief, Ben Smith stood by the reporting, calling on Mueller to be more specific.

“We stand by the reporting and the sources who informed it,” Smith said in a statement, “and we urge the Special Counsel to make clear what he’s disputing.”

It was the second time the site was forced to defend the story in less than 24 hours.

Panic At Davos After Swiss Move As Bank Runs Accelerate And Financial System Begins To Implode

There is panic in the air at Davos as the shocking Swiss move has bolstered record attendance at a time when the bank runs in Europe are accelerating  and the global financial system is beginning to implode.

“When you have a 30 percent currency move in a matter of minutes, no chart could have predicted that stunning event.

Ron Paul: "How Stable Can The System Be, If It's Threatened By Fed Transparency"

The law creating the Federal Reserve gives the president power to remove members of the Federal Reserve Board — including the chairman — “for cause.” 

The law is silent on what does, and does not, constitute a justifiable cause for removal. So, President Trump may be able to fire Powell for not tailoring monetary policy to the president’s liking.

Trump tweets that Covington Catholic students were 'treated unfairly'

More videos emerged Sunday, a day after the first video was posted, that showed a group of Black Hebrew Israelites harassing the students before Nathan Phillips, the Native American man in the video, and several supporters got between the two groups, casting more questions about who was the instigator in the confrontation.
