With the favourable settings being provided by the current global economic meltdown, environmental and health hypes (think of global warming, swine flus, etc), world wide terrorism (from Al Qaeda to local versions, e.g. Somali’s pirates and Nigeria’s MEND), advocates for the establishment of a One World Government are beating the iron while it is hot.
As we have repeated over and over, the strategy is first to form coalitions of regional governments, which will in turn coalesce into one eventual authority under the antichrist (Rev 17:17). Come with us as we examine some of the developments along this line in the past 2-3 months:
African Union develops new structures
In Africa, Libya’s Muammar Ghaddhafi literally arm-twisted his colleagues into getting the African Union (AU) to give its executive arm enhanced powers, creating a new structure that will include a President (for which Ghaddafi is top candidate), a Vice-President, and a Secretary of Peace and Security and common defence. In the arrangement, which must first be ratified by member states before it could become effective, other Secretaries will also replace the current union's commissioners (http://news.bbc.co.uk/2/hi/africa/8131941.stm)
Further reporting on the July 1 meeting which held in Sirte, Libya, the Reuters news agency said, the new African Authority will "represent the common interests of the member states of the union and speak in their name in international forums on international trade.”
The compromise, insisted upon mainly by Nigeria and South Africa after “hours of heated debate in a closed session”, however, is that the African Authority will not be able to act internationally unless it has a mandate from heads of state. The two countries have obvious concerns about losing sovereignty over their own defence and foreign policy issues in the eventual United States of Africa which Ghaddafi is so openly trying to achieve. Benin's Foreign Minister Jean-Marie Ehouzou summarized the situation: "The states are ready to cede a little bit a part of their sovereignty for the benefit of the [union]," he said.
Ceding “a little bit” of sovereignty at a time is what the Hegelian change towards the New World Order is all about. Only that the frequency for making demands for such series of “little changes” is rapidly increasing, driven by global developments such as those mentioned in the opening paragraph of this report.
In Europe, Tony Blair braces up to become Executive President
The EU, of course, is far ahead of the other Unions being patterned after it all round the globe, in achieving Regional governments as a prelude to a One World government. In her case, a decision to appoint a new sitting European president, for a maximum of five years, is to be taken before the end of the year - if Ireland votes “yes” in October in a referendum on the Lisbon treaty streamlining the way the EU is run and also creating the new post. Just as we have mentioned in the past, former UK’s Prime Minister Tony Blair is set to be appointed to this yet-to-be-created office. This position has not changed significantly despite expressed oppositions by Sweden and Spain - the countries whose tenures at the EU Presidency, (under the current arrangement of 6-monthly rotational presidency), would be affected if the new structure is adopted this year.
According to The Independent, UK (April 5, 2009), Gordon Brown has grudgingly supported Blair’s candidature. The unstated job description for the post (reserved exclusively for ex-PMs) includes a high-profile and particularly cozy relationship with the US.
And now, see who else is calling for the establishment of a Global Authority with “real teeth” – The Pope!
The Catholic pontiff, Pope Benedict XVI has on July 7, called for an “urgent” institution “of a true world political authority" whose task would be "to manage the global economy; to revive economies hit by the crisis; to avoid any deterioration of the present crisis and the greater imbalances that would result."
In his new encyclical titled “Charity in Truth” released on that day, the Pope specifically called for a “reform of the United Nations Organization, and likewise of economic institutions and international finance, so that the concept of the family of nations can acquire real teeth.”
Explaining what he means by “real teeth”, the Pope said that the new Authority “would need to be universally recognized and to be vested with the effective power to ensure security for all.”
“Obviously it would have to have the authority to ensure compliance with its decisions from all parties” he added.
It is hardly a coincidence that the Pope’s call for global governance came out at a time when various organizations and groups are now openly working assiduously to achieve the very same objective – which is the one major pillar on which all the prophecies about a coming antichrist in the end times squarely rests.
The World’s richest eight countries, the G8, was meeting at the backside of the Vatican (L’Aquila, Italy) at the time of release of the papal encyclical. Their major agenda was the Economy, which US President Obama tried to weave in with the Environment when he chaired a session on Global Warming.
Earlier in April, the Group of 20 nations, G20, had met and taken steps further drawing the world closer to a global currency
Other groups working towards the actualization of a Global Government are more publicity-shy, preferring that the citizens of the world remain completely oblivious to their existence and activities. One of such groups is the Bilderbergers, which had its 57th Annual secret meeting in Vouliagmeni, Greece between May 14-17. Attendees of the Bilderberger’s strictly-by-invitation conference are not allowed to speak a word of what was discussed in the meeting outside of the group. The group has no website and no minutes are kept of the meetings to ensure secrecy. According to the BBC "It's officially described as a private gathering, but with a guest list including the heads of European and American corporations, political leaders and a few intellectuals, it's one of the most influential organizations on the planet."
Shortly after this year’s meetings began, Bilderberg tracker Jim Tucker, based on inside sources revealed that the group has on its agenda “the plan for a global department of health, a global treasury and a shortened depression rather than a longer economic downturn.” Swedish Foreign Minister and former Prime Minister, Carl Bildt was said to have articulated making such transformation under the auspices of the United Nations. All these are in tandem with what the Pope later called for in his latest encyclical.
After the meetings finished, another Bilderberg tracker, Daniel Estulin, reported that “One of Bilderberg's primary concerns is the danger that their zeal to reshape the world by engineering chaos in order to implement their long term agenda could cause the situation to spiral out of control and eventually lead to a scenario where Bilderberg and the global elite in general are overwhelmed by events and end up losing their control over the planet.”
This scenario is straight from the prophetic Scriptures which predict the pouring out of “the wrath of God” on the world of the antichrist, presumably after his first 3 ½ years experimental atheistic global governance.
Apart from the usual political and business heavyweights (the Rockefellers and Ackermanns) attending Bilderberger’s meetings, there were also the Royalties. This year’s royal attendees included Queen Beatrix of the Netherlands (the largest single shareholder in Royal Dutch Shell, one of the world's largest corporations), Prince Philippe of Belgium, and Queen Sofia of Spain.

And Finally, Yet a new debutant: The Good Club
To further complete the story of secretive meetings by influential folks intent on foisting a global government of their choice on mankind in the days ahead, a meeting of American’s multi billionaires was convened on May 5. Co-hosted by Bill Gates, Warren Buffet, and David Rockefeller, the secret meeting held at the home of Sir Paul Nurse, a British Nobel prize biochemist and president of the private Rockefeller University, in Manhattan. In attendance at what an attendee dubbed the Good Club were “a dozen of the richest people in the world”, including New York Mayor Michael Bloomberg, the financier George Soros, Eli Broad, and the media moguls, Oprah Winfrey and Ted Turner.
According to the UK newspaper The Times, (May 25) these “leading billionaires have met secretly to consider how their wealth could be used to slow the growth of the world's population,” and that they “discussed joining forces to overcome political and religious obstacles to change.” Obviously, in the context of a global downturn in economy, these super-rich philanthropists could now wield an ever larger influence in the world. Bill Gates, son of a Planned Parenthood activist, has repeatedly stated his belief that a drastically reduced global human population is a necessary pre-requisite to a healthy and prosperous future on planet earth. The UK Times observed that this position “could result in a challenge to some Third World politicians” ideas about “traditional values.”
The Times however further pointed out that these ideas of the American multi-billionaires are in sharp contrast to the views espoused by some prominent demographers in the film “Demographic Winter”: that under-population rather than overpopulation is the greater danger facing mankind in the future. Celebrated columnist Don Feder was further quoted as saying that the demographic problem of worldwide declining birthrates "could result in the greatest crisis humanity will confront in this century" as "all over the world, children are disappearing."
But why a secret meeting? Stacy Palmer, editor of the Chronicle of Philanthropy, said the summit was unprecedented. "We only learnt about it afterwards, by accident. Normally these people are happy to talk good causes, but this is different - maybe because they don't want to be seen as a global cabal," he said. But how could anyone think that of these nice people!
