Here is “Rose Ladson”. Here is my Heir! Ursula fits most of the visions I have been having. My Prussian Teutonic Knights stand behind her. She is the woman in my painting whom I gave the name ‘Rose of the World’.
I was seeing names in the word THRONES. I saw THE SON. I saw a ROSE. Now I see a LAD, a SON, and a ROSE. Now I see VAN ANDERSON.
Rose Laden and I share the same birthday, October 8th. She she was four, she had a dream.
“Ursula von der Leyen is four years old when she told her mother about a strange dream. In it she says: “Heavenly Father, I break the clouds!And I broke the clouds! And as I said: Heavenly Father, I break the door! And I broke the door!When the door was broken, I was floating towards the sky, and I was an angel. Small brown wings I had, and a small, white underpants … “
Jon Presco ‘The Seer’
In 1977 she became a student of economics at the University of Göttingen, soon moving to Münster and then the London School of Economics. While studying in London in 1978, she used the pseudonym “Rose Ladson”, because she was seen as a potential target for West German left-wing terrorism. “Röschen” (“Rosie”) has been her nickname since childhood. In 1980, she switched to studying medicine and subsequently enrolled at the Hanover Medical School, where she graduated in 1987 after seven years.
From 1988 to 1992, she worked as an assistant doctor at the Women’s Clinic of the Hanover Medical School. Upon completing her postgraduate studies, she graduated as a Doctor of Medicine in 1991.
From 1998 to 2002, she was a faculty member at the Department of Epidemiology, Social Medicine and Health System Research at the Hanover Medical School, where in 2001, she earned a Master’s degree in Public Health.
Minister of Defence, 2013–present
In 2013, Ursula von der Leyen was appointed as Germany’s first female defence minister. By placing a major party figure such as von der Leyen at the head of the Defence Ministry, Merkel was widely seen as reinvigorating the scandal-ridden ministry’s morale and prestige. Along with Finance Minister Wolfgang Schäuble and Interior Minister Thomas de Maiziere, von der Leyen is one of only three ministers to remain with Merkel since she became chancellor in 2005.
While some other party officials were, like Merkel, also elected with scores over 90% to the CDU executive board at a party convention in December 2014, von der Leyen scraped only 70.5%.
Within her first year in office, Von der Leyen visited the Bundeswehr troops stationed in Afghanistan three times and oversaw the gradual withdrawal of German soldiers from the country as NATO was winding down its 13-year combat mission ISAF. In summer 2014, she was instrumental in Germany’s decision to resupply the Kurdish Peshmerga fighters with lethal assistance. In September 2015, she signalled that she was open to delaying the withdrawal of 850 German soldiers from Afghanistan beyond 2016 after the Taliban’s surprise seizure of the northern city of Kunduz; German forces used to be based in Kunduz as part of NATO-ledISAF and remain stationed in the north of the country.
Following criticism from German officials of Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdoğan‘s military crackdown against Kurdish militants in August 2015, von der Leyen decided to let Germany’s three-year Patriot missile batteries mission to southern Turkey lapse in January 2016 instead of seeking parliamentary approval to extend it. By April 2016, under her leadership, the German Federal Armed Forces announced they would commit 65 million Euro to establish a permanent presence at Incirlik Air Base, as part of Germany’s commitment to the military intervention against ISIL.
At the Munich Security Conference in 2015, von der Leyen publicly defended the German refusal to supply Ukraine with weapons. Stressing that it was important to remain united in Europe over Ukraine, she argued that negotiations with Russia, unlike with Islamic State jihadists, were possible. Germany sees Ukraine and Russia as a chance to prove that in the 21st century, developed nations should solve disputes at the negotiating table, not with weapons, she said. In addition, she noted, Russia has an almost infinite supply of weapons it could send in to Ukraine. She questioned whether any effort by the West could match that or, more important, achieve the outcome sought by Ukraine and its supporters. On the contrary, von der Leyen said giving the Ukrainians arms to help them defend themselves could have unintended and fateful consequences. “Weapons deliveries would be a fire accelerant,” von der Leyen was quoted as telling the Süddeutsche Zeitung daily. “And it could give the Kremlin the excuse to openly intervene in this conflict.”
When Hungary used a water canon and tear gas to drive asylum seekers back from the Hungarian-Serbian border in September 2015, von der Leyen publicly criticized the government of Prime Minister Viktor Orbán and called the measures “not acceptable and […] against the European rules that we have.”
Under von der Leyen’s leadership, the German parliament approved government plans in early 2016 to send up to 650 soldiers to Mali, boosting its presence in the U.N. peacekeeping mission MINUSMA in the West African country.
