A reader sent me a link to the following from the EU Observer:
Trump: The day that shook the Western world
For anyone who thought that the Brexit vote in June would mark the year’s biggest political upset, the real earthquake came on 8 November – the day the US elected Donald Trump. …
End of an era? …
“American Psycho”, said Liberation, a left-wing French daily.
The US has had controversial leaders in the recent past, such as the inarticulate George W Bush whose invasion of Iraq in 2003 destabilised the Middle East, discredited America’s image overseas and caused a rift with France and Germany.
But if Trump’s campaign remarks end up becoming policy, then the coming rupture in EU-US relations could make the Iraq war moment look insignificant.
If he tries to do a deal with China and Russia to divide the world into spheres of influence, that could mean the end of the post-World War II transatlantic alliance.
It could also mean the end of the Western-led, rules-based, post-Cold War world order.
EU holds its breath …
With EU chancelleries watching whom he picks for his new team as a sign of his intentions, he has also named divisive figures for top posts.
His national security adviser, Michael Flynn, is a man who recently tweeted that “Fear of Muslims is RATIONAL”, because they wanted to enslave humanity.
His intelligence chief, Mike Pompeo, has said it was acceptable to torture terrorism suspects.
Trump’s new environmental protection head, Myron Ebell, thinks climate change does not exist. …
Even if Trump’s presidency ends up being more tame than many expect, his victory has struck an ideological blow against the EU. 12/27/16 https://euobserver.com/europe-in-review/136064
So, the vote for the UK to leave the European Union is considered less important to Europe that the election of Donald Trump.
I do not think most in the USA realize how upset the European leaders are with Donald Trump.
Last month the German publication Der Spiegel wrote:
America Has Abdicated Its Leadership of the West
14 November 2016
For 100 years, the United States was the leader of the free world. With the election of Donald Trump, America has now abdicated that role. It is time for Europe, and Angela Merkel, to step into the void.
Even history sometimes leans toward pathos. In January 2017, when Donald Trump is sworn in as the 45th president of the United States, the American Age will celebrate its 100th birthday — and its funeral.
The West was constituted in its modern form in January 1917. World War I was raging in Europe at the time and in Washington, D.C., President Woodrow Wilson told his country that it was time for Americans to take responsibility for “peace and justice.” In April he said: “The world must be made safe for democracy.” He declared war on Germany and sent soldiers to Europe to secure victory for the Western democracies — and the United States assumed the leadership of the Western world. It was an early phase of political globalization.
One hundred years later: Trump. …
What will happen to the West, to Europe, to Germany without the United States as its leading power? Germany is a child of the West, particularly of the United States, brought to life with American generosity, long spoon-fed and now in a deep state of shock. The American president was always simultaneously our president, at least a little, and Barack Obama was a worthy president of the West. Now, though, we must come to terms with a lack of Western leadership. …
America was long the benchmark for the West. But if Trump governs as he promised he would during the campaign, the land of the free will abdicate its role as leader of the free world. Then, it will be Europe’s turn. http://www.spiegel.de/international/world/trump-election-means-europe-must-now-lead-west-a-1120929.html?utm_source=dlvr.it&utm_medium=facebook#ref=rss
Notice that Der Spiegel: is stating that if Donald Trump keeps his promises, it will be Europe’s turn to lead the West.
I wrote an article some time ago titled: Who is the King of the West? Well Germany recognizes it was the USA, but now it thinks that this situation has changed with the election of Donald Trump.
Despite Der Spiegel‘s wording, the Bible shows that Europe will rise up to lead much of the world. The Bible refers to this European power as the ‘Beast of the Sea’ (meaning Mediterranean Sea; watch Can You Prove that the Beast to Come is European?) of Revelation 13:1-10 and the final King of the North in Daniel 11:21-45.
It is not just the Germans. Notice also something from a Belgian leader:
One of European Union’s most ardent advocates has urged his followers to “Make Europe Great Again”, and even seemed to suggest he could start pumping out Trump-style baseball caps to back up his slogan.
Guy Verhofstadt, a leading MEP who promotes near-total European integration, borrowed Donald Trump’s winning line to promote plans for an embryonic EU army, and an international border patrol.
Writing on Facebook, Verhofstadt told fans that the EU should not to “waste time” trying to cosy up to a Trump administration to support doomed projects like the TTIP trade deal:
Instead of whining about Trump’s victory, we should come up with a plan ourselves. We need to expand the European border and coast guard and also develop our own European security capability to keep us safe. If the Trans-Atlantic Partnership is dead, we should look for co-operation and opportunities from within Europe. Let’s not waste our time on a TTIP that the Trump administration will never agree to. Instead, the European Union should focus on completing its own single market.
It is time for unity in Europe. It’s time to make Europe great again! 11/16/16 http://heatst.com/world/diehard-europhile-mep-adopts-make-europe-great-again-slogan-hats/
EU Commission President Jean-Claude Juncker sent out a tweet over Twitter:
Trump wins … Wake up call for Europe to further unite & take charge of its own destiny (11/09/16)
Although Europe does have its own problems, the Bible says it will rise up anyway, and reorganize:
41 Whereas you saw the feet and toes, partly of potter’s clay and partly of iron, the kingdom shall be divided; yet the strength of the iron shall be in it, just as you saw the iron mixed with ceramic clay. 42 And as the toes of the feet were partly of iron and partly of clay, so the kingdom shall be partly strong and partly fragile. 43 As you saw iron mixed with ceramic clay, they will mingle with the seed of men; but they will not adhere to one another, just as iron does not mix with clay. (Daniel 2:41-43)
12 “The ten horns which you saw are ten kings who have received no kingdom as yet, but they receive authority for one hour as kings with the beast. 13 These are of one mind, and they will give their power and authority to the beast. (Revelation 17:12-13)
Europe is moving towards reorganization. And ultimately, a reorganization that a Vatican leader will endorse.
While many in the USA are oblivious to what is going on in Europe, the Bible shows that the coming reorganization will NOT end well for the USA or its Anglo-Saxon descended allies (cf. Daniel 8:25; 11:39; Habakkuk 2:6-8).

Forbes’ Brexit Monster is the Beast of Revelation Various ones have been properly convinced that there is a plan for a European superstate. Forbes’ writer Tom Worstall wrote that the Brexit vote was about the United Kingdom “not joining the monster of the European Union to come.” The Bible tells of a Beast monster that will arise in the end times in Europe. Dr. Thiel cites news reports, as well as the Old and New Testaments, to show that the monster many fear will arise in Europe, despite the vote by the British to exit the European Union.
