Tusk Warns ‘Immense Pressure’ From Trump May Lead to NATO Collapse – Reports

Sputnik News – June 29, 2018

During a summit dinner, the president of the European Council laid out his concerns that the “immense pressure” the Trump administration is exerting on the North Atlantic Alliance could lead to its collapse.

“Despite our tireless efforts to keep the unity of the West, transatlantic relations are under immense pressure due to the policies of President Trump,” he said.

According to The Times, Tusk called on EU leaders to “go beyond” discussions on US steel and aluminum tariffs and consider a potential break-up of NATO.

“Unfortunately, the divisions go beyond trade. It is my belief that while hoping for the best we must be ready to prepare our union for worst-case scenarios,” he said.

Europe should stand up to US threats and defend interests, ex-Austrian chancellor tells RT

RT – June 7, 2018

Europe should defend its interests from US policies that undermine the “international system of norms,” former Austrian chancellor Wolfgang Schuessel said on RT’s Worlds Apart.

Schuessel, who also served as president of the European Council, told RT’s Oksana Boyko that the Trump administration posed a serious threat to the “international systems of norms” and should not be allowed to disregard international law with impunity.

Criticizing Washington’s decisions to withdraw from the Iran nuclear deal and initiate a trade war with its Western allies, Schuessel said that Europe “should stand up and defend our interests.” He suggested that Europe could seek remittal through international bodies such as the United Nations and the World Trade Organization.

The former Austrian chancellor also noted that souring US-Europe relations could provide an opportunity for Brussels and Moscow to increase economic, political and security cooperation.

Belgian Politician Defies Pope’s Euthanasia Ban Order

Joshua Gill – August 14, 2017

A former Belgian prime minister rejected Pope Francis’ authority to ban euthanasia in Belgian Catholic care centers.

Herman Van Rompuy, former PM and first President of the European Council, tweeted Sunday that the days of Vatican authority in Belgium were over, according to Crux. Rompuy tweeted in response to Francis’ order that the Brothers of Charity cease euthanizing mentally ill patients in their care centers by the end of August. Rompuy sits on the board of trustees for the charity group, which has 15 psychiatric care centers in Belgium.

The tweet translates to “The time of ‘Roma locuta causa finita’ is long past.”  The Latin quote is a reference to St. Augustine, and means “Rome has spoken; the cause is finished,” with Rome as a representation of the Pope.

Stoltenberg said the deal was “historic” and would enable the EU and NATO to work as closely as ever.

Both organizations are able to confront these challenges on their own but form together a “formidable team”, Stoltenberg said.

Donald Tusk

RT – May 31, 2016

European Council President Donald Tusk has sounded the alarm, warning that Eurosceptic movements are gaining momentum in the EU because the dream of a federation-like union being pushed by EU leaders is out of touch with the views of ordinary Europeans.

“The specter of a break-up is haunting Europe. A vision of a federation doesn’t seem to me like the best answer to it,” Tusk said at a meeting of the European People’s Party, the biggest bloc in the European Parliament, Reuter reported.

Comment-John Durrad

Looking a little further ahead in time we see the emergence of a super power the Bible labels as “MYSTERY, BABYLON THE GREAT, THE MOTHER OF HARLOTS AND ABOMINATONS OF THE EARTH”  Rev 17:5

This colossus will also fail in a great way and God also implores His people to not be a part of it.

“And he cried mightily with a strong voice, saying, Babylon the great is fallen. is fallen, and is become the habitation of devils, (demons) and the hold of every foul spirit, and a cage of every unclean and hateful bird…And I heard another voice from heaven, saying, Come out of her, my people, that ye be not partakers of her sins, and that ye receive not of her plagues.”   Rev 18:2,4

Europe will break up, but not before great power is given to its leaders to control the population absolutely!

Whether or not Britain will be a part of this empire we will have to see, but the present 28 member nations will be whittled down to 10 major nations that make up the Beast power, the soon to come MYSTERY BABYLON THE GREAT!
