EU President Herman Van Rompuy called for new taxes at Bilderberg dinner
[published 3 days ago, but to show what this Jesuit s.o.b. has in mind for 'us Europeans'.]

Herman Van Rompuy, the man widely expected to be appointed the first President of Europe this week, has called for new eco-taxes and levies on the financial sector to fund a more powerful European Union.

Belgium's prime minister made the controversial proposal, leaked to a Flemish newspaper, during a secret dinner to promote his candidacy hosted by the elite Bilderberg Group.

The comments have added to a backlash against Mr Van Rompuy who, while still the favourite, has been identified as a federalist who is being championed as part of a Franco-German "stitch up" ahead a summit dinner that will appoint an EU President in Brussels on Thursday.

Mr Van Rompuy told an audience of industrialists and politicians that new European environmental and financial taxes, levied by Brussels, should fund the EU to replace resented national contributions being cut by governments because of the recession.

"The possibilities of financial levies at European level must be seriously examined and for the first time the large countries in the union are open to that," he said, according to the newspaper De Tijd.

The idea of using VAT, fuel duties and aviation taxes to give the EU a direct and independent source of income has long been demanded by the European Commission. Proposals currently circulating in Brussels could mean that all airline tickets, shopping and petrol station receipts in Britain list the amount of aviation tax, VAT or fuel duty that goes directly to Brussels as an "EU tax".

Federalist politicians support the plan as a way of giving Brussels autonomy from national treasuries, who begrudge EU contributions, and to provide the Commission with its "own resources" to further expand European integration.

But any plans to give the EU any direct claim or power over national taxation, including VAT, are opposed by Britain, Denmark and other more traditionally Eurosceptic countries.

"This speech is not going to do him any favours at all," said a European diplomat.

Mr Van Rompuy attended the Bilderberg dinner last Thursday at the invitation of the Vicomte Davignon, a former European Commission vice-president and a leading EU federalist.

The setting was the highly symbolic Castle of the Valley of the Duchess, or Chateau de Val-Duchesse, where the EU's founding Treaty of Rome was negotiated in 1957 and later the venue for the first ever European Commission meeting.

Among the diners was Henry Kissinger, the former US State Secretary and Nobel Prize winner who started the debate that led to the creation of an EU President after he famously asked: "Who do I call if I want to call Europe?"

...

Many officials and diplomats now believe that Nicolas Sarkozy, the French President and Angela Merkel, the German Chancellor, have overplayed their hand by backing a federalist candidate.

"Van Rompuy is being seen as the Sarkozy-Merkel candidate and there is resentment at a perceived Franco-German stitch up," said a diplomat.

 Quoting: Pluto

Some of us are trying very hard, but our elected officials just aren't listening to us anymore and couldn't care less about the Constitution they falsely swore to uphold and defend. When I call my reps office and site article 1 section 8 of our constitution (the part that details thier suposedly limited power) they act like I'm some nut case. The majority of us royally screwed up last November and now our government is run by a Marxist who is hell bent on tearing us down and co-operating with evey notion of a one world order. We have really rallied in places this year, but it's going to take a miracle to hold off the socialists in our own government until the next election cycle.

Please pray for us.
"God forbid we should ever be 20 years without such a rebellion. The people cannot be all, & always, well informed... If they remain quiet under such misconceptions it is a lethargy, the forerunner of death to the public liberty... Let them take arms... What signify a few lives lost in a century or two? The tree of liberty must be refreshed from time to time with the blood of patriots & tyrants. " - Thomas Jefferson in 1787

Sorry Pluto. While we are being "fundamentally changed" against the majority's will, we forget the suffering goin on across the pond

Hang tough
Facts are stubborn things;
and whatever may be our wishes, our inclinations, the dictates of our passions, they cannot alter the state of facts and evidence."

We can never shed our sins and regrets, only accumulate more, a burden that we grow and carry until our deaths. The best we can do is learn to live with ourselves, to accommodate our pasts

Same here. We ( the Dutch) voted against a European constitution. 64% said no. They just did not listen and went on with their sick scheme.
Today my head says "flee" and my heart says "fight".
Few of my friends plan to go abroad, like Thailand, Brazil.
But I will not back down. I just can't.

Please pray for us.

Yeah, the old 'divide and conquer', melting us down so they can pour us into the '1-world cast'.
S.o.s. (same old sh*t) everywhere. I'm learning a lot from what's going on in the US.

Hang tough
