Commentary by Dr. Ed Hindson ( the King is Coming telecast ) World Prophetic Ministry newsletter
"
The European Union ( EU ) has edged closer toward becoming a superstate by proposing joint EU embassies throughout the world. The proposal came days before the signing of the controversial European Reform Treaty ( formerly the European Constitution), which creates a European diplomatic service and a new post ------ that of an EU Foreign Minister.

The European Commission plans for travelers to use services at consulates in any EU country, suggesting that members can merge their embassies, with standard rules for help available to European citizens traveling abroad, and also to facilitate repatriation of corps from abroad.
If travelers run into difficulties, they can use embassy services in any of the EU's 27 member nations, representing 490 million citizens. Pooling of resources can allow smaller EU countries to use a larger member country's consulate.

The EU's citizens are already supposed to be able to use another member state's consulate if their country is not represented abroad .... but co-operation between the embassies and consulates is considered "patchy". The Commission is basically upping awareness of consulate's duties to EU travelers who lose passports or get arrested .....
" ( This ) is possibly another subtle step toward the European superpower described in the Book of Revelation." --
quoting British politician William Hague.

News :
One channel for Global TV - for "the ONE Voice"
"In addition to global taxes, “The Global Agenda 2009” report urges creation of a global television channel.
“Media has the capacity to connect the world, bridging cultures and peoples, and telling us who we are and what we mean to each other. The media can also ensure that no voice goes unheard,” it says. “We believe that this new moment also calls for a new media platform, across all media channels, a global non-profit ‘CNN’ providing a new form of independent journalism to inform, illuminate and deepen knowledge about issues that improve the state of the world.”

Thomson (
and Reuters) only for finance and health and info 
one media for one voice ( Ed: monopoly means more control; less free speech )
"The European Commission has approved Thomson's acquisition of Reuters, a move that opens the door to the creation of the largest financial news and information service in the world, but cuts the number of major firms in the sector from three down to two."
Having been given a green light on Tuesday (19 February 2008 ), Thomson, the Canadian financial information and workflow software provider, is to purchase UK-based Reuters, the newswire and financial data service, for €11.5 billion

Blair to head "Faith and Globalisation " -- a Social activism Gospel
"Speaking at Durham University, Tony Blair announced that the faith foundation will focus on building and developing the Faith and Globalisation course which started at Yale - creating a tight network between the twelve partner universities, and ensuring that this is recognised globally as a leading teaching, research, and social action orientated initiative.
It will bring together leading academics from across the faculties of humanities, [ Ed: a secular humanism Social Gospel ; see Galatians 1: 8--9 ]
social sciences and science to carry out global research that will help inform international policies in the future.

Tony Blair : Sharia and Palestinian State Funding--
90 assemble in Paris for Palestinian bonanza ; Blair to co-chair the event
(IsraelNN.com) Representatives of some 70 nations and another 20 international delegations will convene in Paris on Monday in a one-day "Conference of Donors for a Palestinian State." The goal is to raise hundreds of millions of dollars, or more, on behalf of a Palestinian state adjoining, crowding - and threatening - the State of Israel.
Participating organizations include the European Commission, the Arab League, the International Monetary Fund, the World Bank and European and Arab financial funds.  All 27 members of the European Union will be represented, as will be Middle East countries, the Group of Eight industrialized nations, Brazil, China, India and Norway

Britain : Sharia Banking --
The west is giving away the know-how, with gusto, to enable Shari’a banking and guarantee its success throughout the world. And to what ends?
For one,
Britain’s PM Gordon Brown has pointedly stated that he intends to make London the Islamic finance capital of the world. Further, he pledged that in 2008 the British government will issue its own “sukuk”, or Shari’a compliant bonds. Yes, government debt issued as Shari’a compliant

Tony Blair
( Ed: Although NOT the AC or FP, the EU President will endorse all that the AC stipulates . .. Once Bush's "poodle", he will become the AC's "parrot" ..as we see it )
but would seek to drive his own agenda. Remember the bold peroration he made to the European Parliament, on the eve of the 2005 British Presidency - a speech that heralded much incidentally and was highly regarded despite (or perhaps because) he laid into so many of Europe's sacred cows
[ Ed: or any other -- like American -- sacred cows. Our "sacred cow" is the Bill of Rights ]
... it gives us an inkling of how the Presidency of the European Council could look very different, both to Europe and the wider world if Blair, or someone like him, were to be appointed.
Cometh the hour, cometh the man

President of Europe ?
--by Patrick Buchanan
The price of his becoming president of Europe is surrender of his country's sovereignty.
Unless and until Britain gives up the pound, and accepts the euro as its currency, she cannot be a full member of the new Europe and Blair cannot be president. But before Britain can give up the pound, Blair must call a referendum and persuade his people to give up their currency and, with it, control of their economy. That referendum will pit him against Margaret Thatcher, the Tories and a majority of Britons, who do not wish to give up any more freedom or independence to Europe.

On top of the national governments of Europe has been added a new layer of transnational government. A new and more distant socialist bureaucracy has arisen to be piled on top of the old state bureaucracies. With this difference: These new bureaucrats have no loyalty to any country

President Blair
-- reinforcing foreign policy and defense
Critics claim it would create a powerbase for greater EU centralisation on issues like foreign policy and defence.
The president would be appointed by other EU leaders, rather than being directly elected
http://peeringintodarkness.com/ctd/?p=4612

Executive Role
He will continue to make the case for his modernising, progressive brand of centre-left politics and is thought to be preparing his own foundation – a smaller version of that set up by Bill Clinton, former US president – as a means of carrying forward his work in these areas.
However, at only 56, he would like to find an “executive role”
Mr Blair is said to be attracted by the idea of becoming president of the European Council,

He is deeply frustrated at leaving the European stage at a time when his three most senior counterparts are set to be like-minded reformers. He has formed close working relationships with Angela Merkel, German chancellor, and Josť Manuel Barroso, the European Commission president.
He has also been wooed, and to a degree imitated, by Nicolas Sarkozy, the rightwing contender and favourite to become French president in Sunday’s elections
http://www.ft.com/cms/s/4b7e16a2-f9a6-11db-9b6b-000b5df10621.html

earth-ethic, climate change
Other speculation is that he may wish to continue to campaign for development and better government in Africa and may use his celebrity status to seek more urgent action to combat climate change.
