Mr Z’eebub’s ongoing dispute with Nazarene renegade Jesus Christ was described by EC officials in Brussels this afternoon as “not a major issue, and one which we feel sure can be amicably settled”.

The New Pending EU/EUROZONE TREATY Gives Ultimate Power To A Few Without Accountability To Anyone – 28 December 2011

Lucas Comment:  The new Treaty worked out by the EU en EUROZONE states seems to be a small version of a New World Order : the ESM – European Stability Mechanism. This ESM ruled by governors have no accountability to anyone, no courts, no parliaments, no governments and can take money from the treaty member states even sue states for not giving the money requested. This seems to be an ultimate Illuminati trick to use the crisis to bind the EUROZONE and EU states into a rule by ESM that takes money and can use money as it sees fit. Therefore it can use the money for making policy or repress or even blackmail states or people who do not work with them or do what the money kings say. It seems to me this new pending treaty should be stopped by the people. No more tyranny of money rule and undemocratic treaties, laws, rulings. No more leaders or officials without any form of democratic accountability to the people.  No more enslavement via debt. This has to end now.

Greece to miss deficit reduction targets – Europe – Al Jazeera English

Greece to miss deficit reduction targets – Europe – Al Jazeera English.

Greece has said that it will miss targets for reducing the budget deficit for both this year and the next that were set by the European Union and International Monetary Fund in an emergency bailout to avoid bankruptcy.The country’s deficit this year is expected to reach 8.5 per cent of gross domestic product, or $25.2bn higher than the targeted $23.1bn, which would have been 7.8 per cent of GDP, the finance ministry said on Sunday.Earlier, the cabinet had approved a measure to begin reducing the number of state workers, a contentious part of an austerity plan aimed at freeing up EU and IMF loans.

The plan creates a “labour reserve” allowing state workers to be placed on partial pay and be dismissed a year after.

The government has said it will put 30,000 workers in the reserve by the end of this year.

The finance ministry said in a statement after Sunday’s cabinet meeting that the 2012 draft budget, under which redundancies will be catered for, had been approved.

“The budget draft will be submitted tomorrow to parliament,” the statement said.

The move is the most contentious part of a reform package demanded by the EU and the IMF.

Without the release of a $14bn tranche of an EU bailout, massively indebted Greece could run out of money to pay state wage bills within weeks.

There are fears another debt default could wreck the balance sheets of European banks, damage the prospects of the euro single currency and possibly plunge the world into a new global financial crisis.

European officials are scrambling to avert the crisis amid calls for Greece to abandon the euro.

A senior member of the ruling coalition in Germany, Europe’s paymaster, said it may be necessary for Greece to get out of the eurozone, a prospect European governments officially reject as beyond consideration.

Unpopular

The latest round of austerity measures are deeply unpopular in Greece, and public sector unions hope that strikes and demonstrations can wreck the Socialist government’s resolve to enact them.

Workers to be laid off make up a fifth of the Greek workforce and are guaranteed jobs for life under a constitution that bans firing government employees in virtually all circumstances, making the move deeply unpopular.

Under the plan, 30,000 workers would be put in the reserve by the end of this year and paid 60 per cent of their salaries for a year, after which they would be dismissed.

The government has yet to announce how the programme would work, including details such as whether it would be used to push out younger workers, or only to accelerate the retirement of workers already reaching pension age.

Spending irregularities

Negotiators from the IMF, EU and the European Central Bank (ECB), known as the troika, have returned to Athens, the Greek capital, after walking out of talks a month ago, and have met Greek officials for the past four days.

 


officials spent the weekend trying to obtain the most accurate, up-to-date picture of Greece’s finances and forecasts, after protests, including staff occupations of ministries, meant a slow resumption of negotiations last week.

Olli Rehn, the EU economic and monetary affairs commissioner, will brief ministers in Luxembourg on Monday on what the Washington-based IMF wants to do, as looming recession risks turning Greece’s crisis into global catastrophe.There remains the spectre of imminent default, as anticipated by markets treating Greek sovereign bonds as monopoly bets.Their expectation is that the ECB, soon under new Italian management, will step back in.

Debt crisis Euro zone -EU misused for fiscal union and loss of sovereignty

The talks now in progress  to find solutions for the debt-crisis in the Euro zone and the EU are nothing more than further cutting sovereignty of member countries. The controlling widens around the world. Also measures are in place in the UK for further rioting. Punishments are severe and people think still this is for the good of its people.

Still people will not understand the Bigger picture and see that all is done with a reason of the dark ones. The real reasons behind the debt crisis or the rioting youth is not being addressed because now controls the wished for are or will be in place.

I really find it difficult to still see  a group of people asking for more and more control and giving away sovereignty of the people and themselves to the dark ones.  The counterbalance in favour of the Light is the growing group people awakening and rising above the duality controls of the illuminati. Their wish for ascending will be heard. And their families will be looking forward meeting them. Soon all the dark influences and their plans are history.

Love and Light,

Lucas
