Herman van Rompuy Calls for less sovereignty for remaining nation-states.

Flashback: Herman van Rompuy, President of the European Union: “Homogenous Nation States are Dead”.
The collapse of the Euro and the European Union is not a result of the financial crisis created by the bankers. In fact, the crisis was created as a way to justify the banker acquisition of independent nation states in Europe, America, Africa and Asia, among others.
After reading what van Rompuy’s intention is in multiple occasions — to end nation-states as we know them — it is clear that countries will not be strengthened as a result of any measure adopted by the EU, the European Central Bank, or the IMF. As we speak there is a fight inside the banking hierarchy, whose members are discussing what is the best way to collapse the world’s financial system, beginning with the Euro zone to later spread the collapse to the Americas.
The EU president has not shied away from his goal to destroy nations and to submit them to unelected governing bodies. “The time of the homogenous nation state is over,” Mr he Rompuy said, adding that “in every European member state, there are people who believe their country can survive alone in the globalised world. It is more than an illusion — it is a lie.” The firmness of this statement can only come from a man who behind the scenes knows all the details of the planned implosion of the world’s financial system.
Since last week and over the weekend, European leaders have met to determine what is the best way to bring down the Euro zone while consolidating power over the independent nation-states as they’ve done with Greece. After the European Central Bank admitted it will buy sovereign bonds from indebted nations, the International Monetary Fund (IMF) launched itself like the financial vulture it is to discuss what it believes must be its role in the mechanism to destroy the European economy. Meanwhile, Spanish Prime Minister, Mariano Rajoy, who has not officially accepted the conditions given by the ECB, entered a race to beg for softer conditions before he hands his country over to the ECB and IMF.
“The decision of the ECB to provide funds to Spain, pretty much obligates the country to request a second bailout,” said ECB head, Mario Draghi. The ECB has already expressed its intention to buy unlimited amounts of debt from Spain and other nations who may need it, so it is expected that Rajoy will not let the opportunity pass by without requesting a complete bailout of the country. Spanish diplomats have gone to Brussels, Frankfurt, Washington and Madrid to try to negotiate better conditions should the country request the bailout this Fall.
But according to Brussels’ insiders, not even a financial bailout will be a strong safety net for Spain, because it is clear that the country will not be able to meet its goals to cut the deficit due to the depression now taking place in Europe and the failure of the Spanish government to increase its revenues. So the so-called rescue or bailout is nothing else than a smoke screen to facilitate the handover of Spain to its creditor, the European bankers.
Meanwhile, the IMF chief, Christine Lagarde, has said the organization is interested in playing a relevant role in the design and monitoring of the European Central Bank plan to buy bonds issued by euro zone governments. Lagarde stressed that the measures recently announced by the ECB President Mario Draghi, “pave the way forward”, but pointed out that “the priority is to be implemented in a coordinated manner.” “We are prepared to help and assist in the design and implementation of any programs that should be part of the solution,” said Lagarde, who has said that her institution is willing to participate “actively” in the design and development of the program debt purchase of euro zone countries.
Both Herman van Rompuy and Italian Prime Minister Mario Monti have called a meeting with other European leaders to find common ground to “defeat the populist ideas that have sought to destroy the Euro,” they said. “The integration of the EU is an ongoing problem,” said Herman van Rompuy, “again dealing with the financial and social problems (…) so I welcomed the idea of ??President Monti to hold a special summit on the future of European unity,” said Van Rompuy.
The president explained that the European Commission is aware of the criticisms and oppositions that exist right now, but emphasized “the tremendous efforts of all European countries and institutions made ??with unprecedented solidarity”. Mr. van Rompuy probably means solidarity towards the bankers, not in favor of the European population, which despite suffering the largest rates of unemployment in recent history, has had no direct help from the EU leaders. In fact, the first initiatives adopted by EU governments were to cut spending on social programs, salaries, pensions and other programs that generally alleviate the burden on the largest portion of the average european citizen.
It is expected the Spain will expand its campaign to obtain better conditions previous to its request of a bailout during the meeting of finance ministers of the EU. It is expected that both Spain and Greece will clear the timing of the petition as the appetite of European partners to facilitate (or not) things mild conditions (or not). “That’s a conversation that should occur not between Spain and the ECB, but between Spain and the other members of the euro zone,” said Benoit Coeuré, French director of the ECB, in an interview on France Inter.
Herman van Rompuy did not shy away last week about what the final outcome of all of these negotiations must be. Van Rompuy said that by December the project for a new European architecture will have been submitted. This project will be undertaken by the ECB and the European Commission and will include four pillars connected to each other: a banking union, a fiscal union, an economic union and a deeper political union.
