What Is “The Great Reset”?

November 19, 2020 by Michael Snyder

The Internet sure has been buzzing about “the Great Reset” lately.  That term has been trending on Facebook and Twitter, and the New York Times even published an article dismissing it as a “conspiracy theory”.  But it is definitely no conspiracy theory.  I was determined to get to the bottom of this whole thing, and I am going to share the facts that the New York Times either could not find or refused to share.  It turns out that “the Great Reset” is actually an initiative that was started by the World Economic Forum that is designed to get “global stakeholders to cooperate in simultaneously managing the direct consequences of the COVID-19 crisis”.  The following comes directly from the official website of the World Economic Forum

There is an urgent need for global stakeholders to cooperate in simultaneously managing the direct consequences of the COVID-19 crisis. To improve the state of the world, the World Economic Forum is starting The Great Reset initiative.

So the New York Times put out fake news when they told all of us that “the Great Reset” is just a “conspiracy theory”, and they owe all of us a major apology.

According to the World Economic Forum, “the Great Reset” is a “unique window of opportunity” for global leaders to shape “the future state of global relations, the direction of national economies, the priorities of societies, the nature of business models and the management of a global commons”…

As we enter a unique window of opportunity to shape the recovery, this initiative will offer insights to help inform all those determining the future state of global relations, the direction of national economies, the priorities of societies, the nature of business models and the management of a global commons. Drawing from the vision and vast expertise of the leaders engaged across the Forum’s communities, the Great Reset initiative has a set of dimensions to build a new social contract that honours the dignity of every human being.

In other words, “the Great Reset” is essentially just an updated blueprint for a New World Order.

The man behind “the Great Reset” is named Klaus Schwab.  He is the founder and executive chairman of the World Economic Forum, and elsewhere on the official site of the WEF there is an article by Schwab entitled “Now is the time for a ‘great reset’”.  The following is an excerpt from that article…

To achieve a better outcome, the world must act jointly and swiftly to revamp all aspects of our societies and economies, from education to social contracts and working conditions. Every country, from the United States to China, must participate, and every industry, from oil and gas to tech, must be transformed. In short, we need a “Great Reset” of capitalism.

He is very open about the fact that he wants to “revamp all aspects of our societies and economies”.  That means that all aspects of human activity would fall under his plan.

But in particular, he very much wants a “Great Reset” of capitalism.

That definitely sets off alarm bells.  When people start talking about dramatic changes to capitalism, usually what they mean is that we should move even more in the direction of socialism.

According to Schwab, there are three main components to “the Great Reset”.  The first involves reforming our economic systems so that they will “promote more equitable outcomes”

Moreover, governments should implement long-overdue reforms that promote more equitable outcomes. Depending on the country, these may include changes to wealth taxes, the withdrawal of fossil-fuel subsidies, and new rules governing intellectual property, trade, and competition.

Unfortunately, I think that he means the exact same thing that Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez means when she talks about “more equitable outcomes”.

Secondly, Schwab says that one of the main components of “the Great Reset” would involve massive government investments in “green” urban infrastructure and other similar projects

The second component of a Great Reset agenda would ensure that investments advance shared goals, such as equality and sustainability. Here, the large-scale spending programs that many governments are implementing represent a major opportunity for progress. The European Commission, for one, has unveiled plans for a €750 billion ($826 billion) recovery fund. The US, China, and Japan also have ambitious economic-stimulus plans.

Rather than using these funds, as well as investments from private entities and pension funds, to fill cracks in the old system, we should use them to create a new one that is more resilient, equitable, and sustainable in the long run. This means, for example, building “green” urban infrastructure and creating incentives for industries to improve their track record on environmental, social, and governance (ESG) metrics.

Doesn’t that sound a whole lot like the “Green New Deal” that many on the left have been pushing here in the United States?

Thirdly, Schwab envisions applying the “innovations” that we have witnessed during the COVID pandemic as a model for “every sector” of society…

The third and final priority of a Great Reset agenda is to harness the innovations of the Fourth Industrial Revolution to support the public good, especially by addressing health and social challenges. During the COVID-19 crisis, companies, universities, and others have joined forces to develop diagnostics, therapeutics, and possible vaccines; establish testing centers; create mechanisms for tracing infections; and deliver telemedicine. Imagine what could be possible if similar concerted efforts were made in every sector.

In other words, Schwab thinks that the global response to the COVID pandemic can be a blueprint for governing every area of our lives moving forward.

Doesn’t that sound just wonderful?

Of course in order for the globalists to get the United States on board with this “Great Reset”, they will need to get Donald Trump out of the way first, and they think that they are very close to achieving that goal.

The globalists envision a “sustainable” future in which all forms of human activity are very closely monitored and controlled for “the good of the planet”.  They are entirely convinced that a global system in which all the nations of the world are increasingly integrated is what is best for humanity, but those of us that are resisting the globalists understand that a one world system will inevitably evolve into a complete and utter global nightmare.

Globalist publications such as the New York Times will continue to try to convince all of us that plans such as “the Great Reset” do not even exist, even as globalist organizations such as the World Economic Forum are publicly announcing their plans right out in the open. In times like these, it is absolutely imperative to think for yourself, because deception is everywhere and those that tell the truth are often greatly ridiculed.

AS ‘THE GREAT RESET’ TRENDS ON TWITTER, STUDENTS OF BIBLE PROPHECY HAVE KNOWN FOR GENERATIONS ABOUT THE NEW WORLD ORDER AND ONE WORLD GOVERNMENT

We stand on the brink of a technological revolution that will fundamentally alter the way we live, work, and relate to one another. In its scale, scope, and complexity, the transformation will be unlike anything humankind has experienced before. We do not yet know just how it will unfold, but one thing is clear: the response to it must be integrated and comprehensive, involving all stakeholders of the global polity, from the public and private sectors to academia and civil society.

by Geoffrey Grider November 18, 2020

As the unsaved world is utterly astonied at the events unfolding in 2020, we who believe The Book have been patiently waiting for this time period to begin. Make a note, write it down, that time has begun.

 

Right now and for the past few months on Twitter, the term ‘the great reset’ has been not only trending there but burning up the Internet. Not only that, people have been excitedly reading about things like the ‘fourth industrial revolution’, COVID-1984, human implantable quantum dot microneedle vaccination system, and everything else that has been such a revelatory wake-up call in the never-ending craziness that is 2020. But none of this is new or news to bible believers who have long studied end times bible prophecy in their King James Bibles.

“And he causeth all, both small and great, rich and poor, free and bond, to receive a mark in their right hand, or in their foreheads: And that no man might buy or sell, save he that had the mark, or the name of the beast, or the number of his name. Here is wisdom. Let him that hath understanding count the number of the beast: for it is the number of a man; and his number is Six hundred threescore and six.” Revelation 13:16-18 (KJB)

I have been saved since March 14th of 1991, and in a few months that will be 30 years I have been walking with the Lord by His grace and mercy. And for the vast majority of that time, I have been a student of The Book, with a special interest in end times bible prophecy. So no surprise there that the Lord gave me this ministry of Now The End Begins, the desire of my heart in service to Him. As the unsaved world is utterly astonied at the events unfolding in 2020, we who believe The Book have been patiently waiting for this time period to begin. Make a note, write it down, that time has begun.

So with that in mind, let’s take a look at the headlines and see where they line up on the end times timeline. As you read the following examples snatched from the headlines, remember how right now we are being locked down, forced to wear face masks, soon we will be forced to take a vaccine and then forced to receive an implantable digital identification. These things are happening right now, and when they reach fruition after the Rapture of the Church, then prophecy will have been fulfilled. That is what’s happening right now. Change my mind, if you can.

  • Pope Francis’ leadership underscores global influence of Roman Catholic Church: Last Thursday, the president-elect spoke by phone with Pope Francis. The readout from the Biden-Harris transition team highlighted elements of the conversation ranging from a shared commitment to “caring for the marginalized and the poor, addressing the crisis of climate change, and welcoming and integrating immigrants and refugees into our communities.” source

“For all nations have drunk of the wine of the wrath of her fornication, and the kings of the earth have committed fornication with her, and the merchants of the earth are waxed rich through the abundance of her delicacies. And the kings of the earth, who have committed fornication and lived deliciously with her, shall bewail her, and lament for her, when they shall see the smoke of her burning,” Revelation 18:3,9 (KJB)

  • The World Economic Forum Calls For ‘The Great Reset’: To achieve a better outcome, the world must act jointly and swiftly to revamp all aspects of our societies and economies, from education to social contracts and working conditions. Every country, from the United States to China, must participate, and every industry, from oil and gas to tech, must be transformed. In short, we need a “Great Reset” of capitalism. Clearly, the will to build a better society does exist. We must use it to secure the Great Reset that we so badly need. That will require stronger and more effective governments, though this does not imply an ideological push for bigger ones. And it will demand private-sector engagement every step of the way. source

“And it was given unto him to make war with the saints, and to overcome them: and power was given him over all kindreds, and tongues, and nations.” Revelation 13:7 (KJB)

“Because ye have said, We have made a covenant with death, and with hell are we at agreement; when the overflowing scourge shall pass through, it shall not come unto us: for we have made lies our refuge, and under falsehood have we hid ourselves: Therefore thus saith the Lord GOD, Behold, I lay in Zion for a foundation a stone, a tried stone, a precious corner stone, a sure foundation: he that believeth shall not make haste.” Isaiah 28:15,16 (KJB)

  • The Fourth Industrial Revolution: We stand on the brink of a technological revolution that will fundamentally alter the way we live, work, and relate to one another. In its scale, scope, and complexity, the transformation will be unlike anything humankind has experienced before. We do not yet know just how it will unfold, but one thing is clear: the response to it must be integrated and comprehensive, involving all stakeholders of the global polity, from the public and private sectors to academia and civil society. We need to shape a future that works for all of us by putting people first and empowering them. In its most pessimistic, dehumanized form, the Fourth Industrial Revolution may indeed have the potential to “robotize” humanity and thus to deprive us of our heart and soul. But as a complement to the best parts of human nature—creativity, empathy, stewardship—it can also lift humanity into a new collective and moral consciousness based on a shared sense of destiny. It is incumbent on us all to make sure the latter prevails. source

“And I stood upon the sand of the sea, and saw a beast rise up out of the sea, having seven heads and ten horns, and upon his horns ten crowns, and upon his heads the name of blasphemy. And the beast which I saw was like unto a leopard, and his feet were as the feet of a bear, and his mouth as the mouth of a lion: and the dragon gave him his power, and his seat, and great authority.” Revelation 13:1,2 (KJB)

  • The Rise Of The One World Religion Of Chrislam: The Oct. 13-17 interfaith forum was organized online due to the COVID0-19 pandemic. The line-up of the seventh edition of the forum included Cardinal Miguel Ángel Ayuso Guixot, President of the Vatican’s Council for Interreligious Dialogue; Patriarch Bartholomew of Constantinople; representatives from the United Nations, the International Dialogue Centre (KAICIID), the Organization of Islamic Cooperation, the World Muslim League, and the European Commission. In the words of Sheikh Abdallah Bin Bayyah, President of the Forum for Promoting Peace in Muslim Societies: “Religion is a great power that can be a bridge. I would love to see religious leaders act as fire brigades to put out fires and save people’s lives wherever they are; they don’t ask ‘how did this fire break out?’ but ‘how can we put it out and prevent it?’” source 
  •  

“And the woman was arrayed in purple and scarlet colour, and decked with gold and precious stones and pearls, having a golden cup in her hand full of abominations and filthiness of her fornication: And upon her forehead was a name written, MYSTERY, BABYLON THE GREAT, THE MOTHER OF HARLOTS AND ABOMINATIONS OF THE EARTH. And I saw the woman drunken with the blood of the saints, and with the blood of the martyrs of Jesus: and when I saw her, I wondered with great admiration.” Revelation 17:4-6 (KJB)

Yes, the Pretribulation Rapture of the Church will remove those of us who are saved before these things come to full bloom, so why are we seeing them now while the Church is still here? Because in the bible, all dispensations overlap each other,

UN World Food Program Warns Of “Famines Of Biblical Proportions In 2021” As Some Americans Wait 12 Hours For Food

November 16, 2020 by Michael Snyder

The UN World Food Program was the winner of the Nobel Peace Prize in 2020, and the head of that agency is warning of the potential for absolutely devastating famines around the globe in 2021.  The COVID-19 lockdowns that were instituted all over the world this year created tremendous hardship in many wealthy countries, but in poorer nations the economic devastation has created alarming waves of hunger.  There was hope that things would get better when lockdowns were being lifted, but now a new round of lockdowns is being imposed, and many experts are warning about what this could mean for those living in deep poverty.

David Beasley was absolutely thrilled when his agency was given the Nobel Peace Prize, because all of the attention has given him more opportunities to ask for money.  Because without a massive influx of money, he says that we are going to see “famines of biblical proportions in 2021”

The head of the World Food Program says the Nobel Peace Prize has given the U.N. agency a spotlight and megaphone to warn world leaders that next year is going to be worse than this year, and without billions of dollars “we are going to have famines of biblical proportions in 2021.”

As I have previously explained to my readers, widespread crop failures along with the economic shutdowns brought on by COVID-19 have put a tremendous amount of stress on global food distribution systems.  Food prices are rapidly rising all over the planet, and this is hurting the people at the bottom of the economic food chain the most.

According to Beasley, many areas of the globe are potentially facing a major food crisis “in the next three to six months”

According to a joint analysis by WFP and the U.N. Food and Agriculture Organization in October, 20 countries “are likely to face potential spikes in high acute food insecurity” in the next three to six months, “and require urgent attention.”

Of those, Yemen, South Sudan, northeastern Nigeria and Burkina Faso have some areas that “have reached a critical hunger situation following years of conflict or other shocks,” the U.N. agencies said, and any further deterioration in coming months “could lead to a risk of famine.”

Here in the United States, the good news is that nobody is facing starvation at this point.

But the bad news is that we are in the midst of the worst economic downturn since the Great Depression of the 1930s, and some Americans are waiting in line for up to 12 hours for handouts.  If you don’t believe this, here is an excerpt from a news report about a food distribution event that just happened in Texas

Thousands of families lined up to receive groceries at a Texas food bank this weekend, some queuing for as long as 12 hours as the on-going coronavirus pandemic continues to inflict hunger and economic hardships on the state.

The food bank distribution event, held by North Texas Food Bank (NTFB) in Dallas on Saturday, saw 600,000 pounds of food given away – including 7,000 turkeys.

You have to be pretty desperate to be willing to wait in a line for 12 hours.

But when you are very hungry and you are very short on money, all of a sudden you will be willing to do things that you wouldn’t normally do.

For those that wouldn’t have a Thanksgiving dinner otherwise, this food distribution event was “a real big deal”

“I see blessings coming to us cause we all struggling. And I appreciate North Texas helping us out,” resident Samantha Woods said while waiting in her vehicle.

“I haven’t been working since December, can’t find a job, they cut my unemployment, it’s a real big deal,” said Cynthia Culter.

Elsewhere, millions upon millions of impoverished Americans are facing the possibility of being evicted from their homes right after the holiday season is over.

A national moratorium on evictions is scheduled to end on January 1st, and it is being reported that we could see a record number of evictions in January 2021…

An estimated 11 to 13 million renter households are at risk of eviction, according to Stout, an investment bank and global advisory firm. It predicts there could be as many as 6.4 million potential eviction filings by January 1, 2021 if the CDC moratorium is lifted.

Since the order does not cancel or freeze rent, all of the tenant’s back rent will be due come January 1. Without rent relief or an extension of the protection, many struggling renters will — again — face eviction.

I have a feeling that the moratorium may be extended, but that will just put even more financial stress on landlords.

And at some point there will be no more moratoriums, and all of that back rent will be due, and most of those households will not be able to pay it and will be evicted anyway.

Meanwhile, more Americans are losing their jobs with each passing day, and the new lockdowns that are being put in place all over the country right now will greatly accelerate that process.

No matter what happens politically, it appears that our national economic nightmare is only going to intensify in 2021, and that means that we are likely to see even more civil unrest.

Of course most people already understand what is happening to our nation, and that is why so many wealthy individuals are fleeing our core urban areas.  According to the New York Post, “far more than 300,000 New Yorkers” have moved out of the city over the past eight months…

City residents filed 295,103 change of address requests from March 1 through Oct. 31, according to data The Post obtained from the US Postal Service under a Freedom of Information Act request.

Since the data details only when 11 or more forwarding requests were made to a particular county outside NYC, the number of moves is actually higher. And a single address change could represent an entire household, which means far more than 300,000 New Yorkers fled the five boroughs.

This is already the craziest time in modern American history, and I will continue to keep my readers updated as we head into another deeply troubled year.

For a long time I have been warning that economic collapse, famine and civil unrest were coming, and now all three are all in the headlines on a continual basis.

Unfortunately, what we have experienced so far is just the beginning.  Global authorities are hoping for a “reset”, but what they are going to get is a “great meltdown” instead.

FOR 10 YEARS WE HAVE WARNED YOU THAT AMERICA WOULD BE BETRAYED BY HER LEADERS AND TAKEN OVER, THIS IS WHAT YOU ARE WATCHING HAPPEN RIGHT NOW

America is not mentioned by name in bible prophecy, and certainly neither are Donald Trump, Joe Biden and Kamala Harris. But what is mentioned in your King James Bible, and what is prophesied, is the coming New World Order under Antichrist. As Ronald Reagan so aptly pointed out in his landmark speech ‘A Time For Choosing’, America is the last nation on Earth to stand alone for freedom, liberty and provide it’s people the ability to worship God in peace and security. No other nation on Earth has ever guaranteed those things to its people, and because of that, America is unique. But because of those exact same things, America stands in the way of the New World Order, and as such must be taken out of the way. 

by Geoffrey Grider November 7, 2020

America stands in the way of the New World Order, and as such must be taken out of the way. What you are watching now is our elected leaders betraying this nation and pulling down the remaining pillars on which it stands.

 

The graphic that you see at the top of this article is the original banner I created over ten years ago. How well I remember sitting in front of my computer at my home in Colorado, looking at a completely blank canvas in Photoshop, and asking the Lord what He would have me to make. This was the very first graphic ever created for Now The End Begins. I direct your attention to the  text in the bottom left-hand corner of the image, this is where our story takes place right now in 2020. Take a look and see:

“For generations the Bible has warned of the coming End of Days, and you are now living in that time. America, a nation raised up by the Hand of God to spread the Gospel and to be a beacon of Freedom for people around the world is about to be forever silenced by these sworn to protect her—her leaders.” Geoffrey Grider 2009

America is not mentioned by name in bible prophecy, and certainly neither are Donald Trump, Joe Biden and Kamala Harris. But what is mentioned in your King James Bible, and what is prophesied, is the coming New World Order under Antichrist. As Ronald Reagan so aptly pointed out in his landmark speech ‘A Time For Choosing’, America is the last nation on Earth to stand alone for freedom, liberty and provide it’s people the ability to worship God in peace and security. No other nation on Earth has ever guaranteed those things to its people, and because of that, America is unique. But because of those exact same things, America stands in the way of the New World Order, and as such must be taken out of the way.

This has been a massive undertaking, costing billions of dollars and laid out over many years.  On January 17, 1961, Dwight D. Eisenhower ends his presidential term by warning the nation about the increasing power of the military-industrial complex, it is here the seeds of anarchy were sown. From there we watch President John F. Kennedy, in a speech entitled “The President and the Press” given at the Waldorf-Astoria Hotel in New York City on April 27, 1961, telling America how he aimed to expose the many ‘secret societies’ that were rising in power in the Deep State. Not long after he gave that speech, his security detail would be call off of his car in Dallas, Texas, and he would be dead. Murdered not by Lee Harvey Oswald, but by the CIA and George H.W. Bush.

On September 11, 1991, that same man, George H.W. Bush, now president of the United States, went before Congress and told America to prepare for the New World Order. Ten years to the day later, the World Trade Centers would be brought down under the administration of his son, George W. Bush, with his other son Marvin overseeing ‘security’ at the Towers. When the smoke cleared, freedom in America had taken a shot to the forehead with something called The Patriot Act, kind of like Hitler’s Enabling Act, just a little more subtle. One year after that, the first human implantable microchip would be released from a company called Digital Angel, and it was called the VeriChip. Oh yeah, I bet you’re awake now, aren’t you? Stay with me, the water is about to get deeper.

“The bricks are fallen down, but we will build with hewn stones: the sycomores are cut down, but we will change them into cedars. And there shall be upon every high mountain, and upon every high hill, rivers and streams of waters in the day of the great slaughter, when the towers fall.” Isaiah 9:10, 30:25 (KJB)

In 2008, America elected its first black president, the Muslim Barack Hussein Obama. I was thrilled that a black man was president, but I was disgusted that the same black man was a Marxist with a past so shady, all his records were sealed. You do the math. His boyhood heros were gutter-dwelling low-lifes like Bill Ayers and Saul Alinsky, avowed Marxists who sought the overthrow of America. Under Obama’s two terms, legal protections for heterosexual marriage was denied, and gay marriage became the law of the land. Transsexuals , transgenders and transvestites became a protected category. Under Obama we saw the creation of ISIS, Black Lives Matter and ANTIFA. The economy was so bad, Obama himself said it would take a ‘magic wand’ to restore it. Enter Donald Trump.

In 2016, America elected Donald Trump with a mandate to take on the Deep State, and drain the swamp, and I must say, he did a really, really good job. He beat 16 Republicans including Jeb Bush for the nomination, and then beat Hillary Clinton who had the complete support of the fake news media, and a billion dollar bank account. Trump beat them all, because God placed him in the Oval Office for such a time as this. Under Trump, the US Embassy was moved to Jerusalem, Jerusalem was declared the capital of Israel, and the American economy began to fire on all 8 cylinders, and we were prosperous once more. Donald Trump is also the only president in the modern-era to not lead us into a new war. One of his last acts was the Abraham Accords, and it is here where we pull over and park for a moment.

“And he changeth the times and the seasons: he removeth kings, and setteth up kings: he giveth wisdom unto the wise, and knowledge to them that know understanding:” Daniel 2:21 (KJB)

Donald Trump was put in office by God, according to Daniel 2:21, to prepare the table for the end times which began on May 14th , 1948. He was not put into office to Make America Great Again. I have long said that God used Obama to judge America, and to legally codify the sin we crave into the laws of our land, and He used Donald Trump to judge the world. The Abraham Accords are the foundational building blocks of the coming Daniel 9:27 (KJB) covenant that the Jews will make with Antichrist. Are you with me so far, do you see and understand what I am saying to you? The world has been prepared for judgement, and that judgment is now well under way, and it has reached America.

Get your eyes off of hapless pawns like Joe Biden and Kamala Harris, they are but instruments of God’s judgment. But prepare for the same people to make your lives miserable, unsaved Liberals are some of the most vindictive, evil people you will ever come across.

“And the ten horns which thou sawest are ten kings, which have received no kingdom as yet; but receive power as kings one hour with the beast. These have one mind, and shall give their power and strength unto the beast.” Revelation 17:12,13 (KJB)

Over in Europe, in Iran and China, leaders there are giddy with the prospect of a Joe Biden presidency. The globalism that Donald Trump stopped will be reestablished overnight, and taken to levels you have only ever read about in end times novels. Emmanuel Macron fully expects to form a pact with the Biden administration that will see the creation of the European Union Army, with Macron as its commander-in-chief.

All during the COVID crisis, we have watched churches in Democrat-run states be fined, closed down and run out of business. We have watched nearly $3,000,000,000.00 dollars of damage done in the Black Lives Matter Riots, riots that presumptive vice president Kamala Harris says are “good, necessary, and won’t stop even after the election”. We have watched ANTIFA killing cops with impunity. Now all that lawlessness will be legal, and not only legal it will be ‘protected speech’ as Kamala Harris has long said it should be.

This is the new America, the Great Reset, the Fourth Industrial Revolution. We told you for 10 years this was coming, you should have listened, we tried out best to warn you.

Over the past 24-hours, thousands of people have been out on the streets of New York City, no masks, no social distancing, with the full blessing of Democrat Mayor Bill Di Blasio and Democrat Gov. Andrew Cuomo. Huge groups of unmasked people only spread germs if you’re a Trump supporter, if you’re a Democrat, you won’t even hear it mentioned one time. In Washington, AOC has called for the creation of an ‘enemies list’, and it has already begun to be populated with names. In 2016, NTEB was placed on the ‘enemies list’ of the Southern Poverty Law Center, I have no doubt we will make AOC’s list also. And so will you.

“For the time is come that judgment must begin at the house of God: and if it first begin at us, what shall the end be of them that obey not the gospel of God? And if the righteous scarcely be saved, where shall the ungodly and the sinner appear? Wherefore let them that suffer according to the will of God commit the keeping of their souls to him in well doing, as unto a faithful Creator.” 1 Peter 4:17-19 (KJB)

Abp. Viganò warns Trump about ‘Great Reset’ plot to ‘subdue humanity,’ destroy freedom

‘It is you, dear President, who are ‘the one who opposes’ the deep state, the final assault of the children of darkness,’ His Excellency wrote. ‘Place your trust in the Lord.’

Fri Oct 30, 2020 – 1:01 am EST 

  •  

By Archbishop Carlo Maria Viganò

October 30, 2020 (LifeSiteNews) – His Excellency, Archbishop Carlo Maria Viganò, has written yet another open letter to President Donald J. Trump. Read it in its entirety below. It is available in PDF by clicking here. Read it in Italian here.

OPEN LETTER TO THE PRESIDENT OF THE UNITED STATES OF AMERICA

DONALD J. TRUMP

Sunday, October 25, 2020

Solemnity of Christ the King

Mr. President,

Allow me to address you at this hour in which the fate of the whole world is being threatened by a global conspiracy against God and humanity. I write to you as an Archbishop, as a Successor of the Apostles, as the former Apostolic Nuncio to the United States of America. I am writing to you in the midst of the silence of both civil and religious authorities. May you accept these words of mine as the “voice of one crying out in the desert” (Jn 1:23).

As I said when I wrote my letter to you in June, this historical moment sees the forces of Evil aligned in a battle without quarter against the forces of Good; forces of Evil that appear powerful and organized as they oppose the children of Light, who are disoriented and disorganized, abandoned by their temporal and spiritual leaders.

Daily we sense the attacks multiplying of those who want to destroy the very basis of society: the natural family, respect for human life, love of country, freedom of education and business. We see heads of nations and religious leaders pandering to this suicide of Western culture and its Christian soul, while the fundamental rights of citizens and believers are denied in the name of a health emergency that is revealing itself more and more fully as instrumental to the establishment of an inhuman faceless tyranny.

A global plan called the Great Reset is underway. Its architect is a global élite that wants to subdue all of humanity, imposing coercive measures with which to drastically limit individual freedoms and those of entire populations. In several nations this plan has already been approved and financed; in others it is still in an early stage. Behind the world leaders who are the accomplices and executors of this infernal project, there are unscrupulous characters who finance the World Economic Forum and Event 201, promoting their agenda.

The purpose of the Great Reset is the imposition of a health dictatorship aiming at the imposition of liberticidal measures, hidden behind tempting promises of ensuring a universal income and cancelling individual debt. The price of these concessions from the International Monetary Fund will be the renunciation of private property and adherence to a program of vaccination against Covid-19 and Covid-21 promoted by Bill Gates with the collaboration of the main pharmaceutical groups. Beyond the enormous economic interests that motivate the promoters of the Great Reset, the imposition of the vaccination will be accompanied by the requirement of a health passport and a digital ID, with the consequent contact tracing of the population of the entire world. Those who do not accept these measures will be confined in detention camps or placed under house arrest, and all their assets will be confiscated.  

Mr. President, I imagine that you are already aware that in some countries the Great Reset will be activated between the end of this year and the first trimester of 2021. For this purpose, further lockdowns are planned, which will be officially justified by a supposed second and third wave of the pandemic. You are well aware of the means that have been deployed to sow panic and legitimize draconian limitations on individual liberties, artfully provoking a world-wide economic crisis. In the intentions of its architects, this crisis will serve to make the recourse of nations to the Great Reset irreversible, thereby giving the final blow to a world whose existence and very memory they want to completely cancel. But this world, Mr. President, includes people, affections, institutions, faith, culture, traditions, and ideals: people and values that do not act like automatons, who do not obey like machines, because they are endowed with a soul and a heart, because they are tied together by a spiritual bond that draws its strength from above, from that God that our adversaries want to challenge, just as Lucifer did at the beginning of time with his “non serviam.

Many people – as we well know – are annoyed by this reference to the clash between Good and Evil and the use of “apocalyptic” overtones, which according to them exasperates spirits and sharpens divisions. It is not surprising that the enemy is angered at being discovered just when he believes he has reached the citadel he seeks to conquer undisturbed. What is surprising, however, is that there is no one to sound the alarm. The reaction of the deep state to those who denounce its plan is broken and incoherent, but understandable. Just when the complicity of the mainstream media had succeeded in making the transition to the New World Order almost painless and unnoticed, all sorts of deceptions, scandals and crimes are coming to light.

Until a few months ago, it was easy to smear as “conspiracy theorists” those who denounced these terrible plans, which we now see being carried out down to the smallest detail. No one, up until last February, would ever have thought that, in all of our cities, citizens would be arrested simply for wanting to walk down the street, to breathe, to want to keep their business open, to want to go to church on Sunday. Yet now it is happening all over the world, even in picture-postcard Italy that many Americans consider to be a small enchanted country, with its ancient monuments, its churches, its charming cities, its characteristic villages. And while the politicians are barricaded inside their palaces promulgating decrees like Persian satraps, businesses are failing, shops are closing, and people are prevented from living, traveling, working, and praying. The disastrous psychological consequences of this operation are already being seen, beginning with the suicides of desperate entrepreneurs and of our children, segregated from friends and classmates, told to follow their classes while sitting at home alone in front of a computer.

In Sacred Scripture, Saint Paul speaks to us of “the one who opposes” the manifestation of the mystery of iniquity, the kathèkon (2 Thess 2:6-7). In the religious sphere, this obstacle to evil is the Church, and in particular the papacy; in the political sphere, it is those who impede the establishment of the New World Order. 

As is now clear, the one who occupies the Chair of Peter has betrayed his role from the very beginning in order to defend and promote the globalist ideology, supporting the agenda of the deep church, who chose him from its ranks.

Mr. President, you have clearly stated that you want to defend the nation – One Nation under God, fundamental liberties, and non-negotiable values that are denied and fought against today. It is you, dear President, who are “the one who opposes” the deep state, the final assault of the children of darkness.

For this reason, it is necessary that all people of good will be persuaded of the epochal importance of the imminent election: not so much for the sake of this or that political program, but because of the general inspiration of your action that best embodies – in this particular historical context – that world, our world, which they want to cancel by means of the lockdown. Your adversary is also our adversary: it is the Enemy of the human race, He who is “a murderer from the beginning” (Jn 8:44).

Around you are gathered with faith and courage those who consider you the final garrison against the world dictatorship. The alternative is to vote for a person who is manipulated by the deep state, gravely compromised by scandals and corruption, who will do to the United States what Jorge Mario Bergoglio is doing to the Church, Prime Minister Conte to Italy, President Macron to France, Prime Minster Sanchez to Spain, and so on. The blackmailable nature of Joe Biden – just like that of the prelates of the Vatican’s “magic circle” – will expose him to be used unscrupulously, allowing illegitimate powers to interfere in both domestic politics as well as international balances. It is obvious that those who manipulate him already have someone worse than him ready, with whom they will replace him as soon as the opportunity arises.

And yet, in the midst of this bleak picture, this apparently unstoppable advance of the “Invisible Enemy,” an element of hope emerges. The adversary does not know how to love, and it does not understand that it is not enough to assure a universal income or to cancel mortgages in order to subjugate the masses and convince them to be branded like cattle. This people, which for too long has endured the abuses of a hateful and tyrannical power, is rediscovering that it has a soul; it is understanding that it is not willing to exchange its freedom for the homogenization and cancellation of its identity; it is beginning to understand the value of familial and social ties, of the bonds of faith and culture that unite honest people. This Great Reset is destined to fail because those who planned it do not understand that there are still people ready to take to the streets to defend their rights, to protect their loved ones, to give a future to their children and grandchildren. The leveling inhumanity of the globalist project will shatter miserably in the face of the firm and courageous opposition of the children of Light. The enemy has Satan on its side, He who only knows how to hate. But on our side, we have the Lord Almighty, the God of armies arrayed for battle, and the Most Holy Virgin, who will crush the head of the ancient Serpent. “If God is for us, who can be against us?” (Rom 8:31).

Mr. President, you are well aware that, in this crucial hour, the United States of America is considered the defending wall against which the war declared by the advocates of globalism has been unleashed. Place your trust in the Lord, strengthened by the words of the Apostle Paul: “I can do all things in Him who strengthens me” (Phil 4:13). To be an instrument of Divine Providence is a great responsibility, for which you will certainly receive all the graces of state that you need, since they are being fervently implored for you by the many people who support you with their prayers.

With this heavenly hope and the assurance of my prayer for you, for the First Lady, and for your collaborators, with all my heart I send you my blessing. 

God bless the United States of America!

Turkey’s unfinished war with the West

The triumph of an audacious Turkish nation over the Western powers that had caused the Ottoman fall from grace is a tale deeply embedded in Turkey’s political culture.

By SIMON SCHOFIELD   

NOVEMBER 1, 2020 09:12

The Treaty of Sèvres was a crushing humiliation for the Ottomans, proposing to dismember the sultans’ empire, leaving a rump state in which the Turkish people could lick their wounds. In defeat, they rallied around field marshall Mustafa Kemal Ataturk, the only Ottoman military commander to be undefeated in World War I. Ataturk had masterminded the Turkish defense of Gallipoli, a pivotal victory which has shaped Turkish identity as much as Trafalgar has shaped Britain’s.

From the ashes of the Ottoman Empire, Ataturk eschewed Islamist political ideology and kindled a fire of secular Turkish nationalism. Dissatisfied with the terms imposed at Sèvres, Ataturk launched the Turkish war of independence, taking on Greece, France and the UK, among others. Under Ataturk’s leadership, the Turkish National Movement emerged victorious over its rivals, reclaiming a number of territories lost and establishing a secular, modern Turkey.

The triumph of an audacious Turkish nation over the Western powers that had caused the Ottoman fall from grace is a tale deeply embedded in Turkey’s political culture. However, there have always been voices throughout Turkey’s modern history who have voiced dissatisfaction with the events of a century ago, believing Ataturk did not push far enough in the Treaty of Lausanne.

Such sentiments were voiced by none other than Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan, who demanded that the treaty be renegotiated when he visited Athens in December 2017, the first such visit to Greece by a Turkish head of state in 65 years. Maksut Serim, the president’s chief aide, dubbed Erdogan’s “secret keeper, “is of the opinion that the treaty has expired, according to a wiretapped telephone conversation submitted to a Turkish court.

Erdogan has forged a new political creed, taking the strong Turkish nationalism of Ataturk and imbuing it with revanchist neo-Ottoman ambition and a radical Islamist agenda.

This has engendered a sense of unfinished business; an aspiration to restore territories under the old Ottoman Empire to Turkish rule.

This new nationalism has also led to Erdogan seeking to use his government as a guardian of Turkic peoples, most clearly manifested in his support for Azerbaijan in the recent escalation in the disputed Nagorno-Karabakh region. The Islamist bent to his intervention on behalf of Baku cannot avoid notice, as he has deployed a contingent of Syrian terrorists led by a former ISIS commander to fight their corner.

The echoes of Sèvres and Lausanne continue to reverberate throughout the corridors of power in Ankara. Believing that the fall of the Ottoman Empire was due to its inability to secure naval supremacy in the eastern Mediterranean, the military brass in 2006 concocted the concept of the ‘Blue Homeland’, which claims sovereignty over great swaths of the Aegean and Mediterranean. Once the brainchild of his most vociferous rivals, Erdogan appropriated this policy for himself and has been implementing it with aplomb.

Erdogan even invoked Sèvres in his rebuke of those challenging his activities in the Mediterranean, declaring: “[j]ust as it rejected the Treaty of Sèvres 100 years ago, Turkey will not bow down to the modern Sèvres being pushed on it in the eastern Mediterranean.” Cloaking himself in ersatz righteous anger, Erdogan continues to attempt to channel Ataturk’s spirit, characterizing his own expansionist ambitions as the defiance of a plucky underdog facing down the European colonial Goliaths.
 
Such rhetoric has reached a fever pitch this week as Erdogan called French President Emmanuel Macron’s mental health into question, stating he needed “treatment on a mental level” in response to the French president’s campaign to maintain secular values following the beheading of a teacher who showed cartoons of the Prophet Muhammad in class. Macron has responded by recalling the French ambassador to Turkey.

The two have clashed numerous times recently as Macron has taken exception to Turkish provocations in the eastern Mediterranean and has been deeply critical of Ankara’s deployment of Syrian jihadists to fight in Libya. The French president recalled the ambassador to Ankara following inflammatory comments from Erdogan, who has since responded by calling for a mass boycott of French goods. Macron in many respects has taken up the mantle of Western leadership on Turkey, with Trump enabling Erdogan’s strongman tactics, while US president Barack Obama before him sought an accommodation with the hard-line Islamism now coursing through Turkey’s body politic.

There is a toxic political cocktail being purveyed and supped in Ankara. Its ingredients include hard-line political Islamism, Turkish ethno-nationalism, irredentist dreams of restoring Ottoman territory and a bunker mentality belief of Western conspiracies against Turkey. The only possible outcome is that tensions will continue to escalate as Erdogan steers his country away from Western liberal democracies and toward the “managed democracies” club led by Russia and China.

ISRAEL MOCKS UN FOR PUTTING CHINA, PAKISTAN, CUBA ON ‘HUMAN RIGHTS’ COUNCIL

BY JNS | OCT 14, 2020 | US-ISRAEL RELATIONS

Now go, attack Amalek, and proscribe all that belongs to him Samuel 15:3 (The Israel BibleTM)

Israel’s Ambassador to the United Nations Gilad Erdan slammed the election of several countries with poor rights records to the U.N. Human Rights Council.

“Today’s Human Rights Council elections prove once again that this council has nothing to do with protecting human rights and everything to do with violating them. Since 2006, the council has adopted 90 resolutions condemning Israel, more than all the resolutions against Syria, North Korea and Iran, combined,” he said in a statement.

“The obsessive focus on Israel, along with its protection of oppressive, dictatorial regimes, shows that the Human Rights Council is in the business of white-washing the crimes of these countries,” continued Erdan. “I call on all democracies that are still members of the council to immediately resign from this shameful and anti-Semitic body.”

On Tuesday, the UNHRC elected China, Russia, Pakistan and Cuba, which all have poor human-rights records, among several other countries to fill 15 vacant seats on the council. Notably, Saudi Arabia, which has received criticism over its purported role in the killing of journalist Jamal Khashoggi, did not win election to the council.

In particular, the election of China has received widespread condemnation, especially given its ongoing treatment of Uighur Muslims in Xinjiang province, as well as protesters in Hong Kong.

In 2018, the Trump administration pulled the United States from the UNHRC in protest of the council’s frequent criticism of Israel.

Former U.S. Ambassador to the United Nations Nikki Haley said on Tuesday that “the U.N. Human Rights Council is a total farce not worthy of its name or the United States giving it any credibility.”

Israel is also the only country that also has a permanent item on the UNHRC’s annual agenda dedicated to the state’s condemnation.

AMAZON LAUNCHES NEW CONTACTLESS BIOMETRIC PALM READING TECHNOLOGY THAT SCANS YOUR RIGHT HAND TO ALLOW YOU TO BUY AND SELL AT STORES

 

Customers at the stores near Amazon’s campus in Washington can flash a palm for entry and to buy goods. The company chose palm recognition, according to Dilip Kumar, vice president of Physical Retail & Technology, because it’s more private than other biometric technology, and a person would be required to purposefully flash a palm at the Amazon One device to engage. “And it’s contactless, which we think customers will appreciate, especially in current times,” Kumar wrote on Tuesday.

by Geoffrey Grider September 29, 2020

Amazon has introduced new palm recognition technology in a pair of Seattle stores and sees broader uses in places like stadiums and offices.

 

With the rapid passing of time, technology is moving us closer and closer to the Mark of the Beast system where all buying and selling will be done through an embedded mark in either the back of the right hand or in the forehead. Amazon today announced that they will be offering contactless payments, Amazon One, from the bottom of your right hand, called Palm Recognition Technology and it’s something your King James Bible warned you about two thousand years ago. Amazon One could right be called Amazon 666 Lite.

“And he causeth all, both small and great, rich and poor, free and bond, to receive a mark in their right hand, or in their foreheads: And that no man might buy or sell, save he that had the mark, or the name of the beast, or the number of his name. Here is wisdom. Let him that hath understanding count the number of the beast: for it is the number of a man; and his number is Six hundred threescore and six.” Revelation 13:16-18 (KJB)

While it is true that there can be no Mark of the Beast until Antichrist is ruling over the whole world, it is looking more and more like the Mark of the Beast system that he will inherit is already up and functioning. In just one generation, we have gone from a card with a stripe, to a card with a chip, to no card at all and using the bottom of your right hand. All it will take is one, little flip, and there you will be, buying and selling from the back of your right hand, or from your forehead.

Amazon sees its palm recognition technology in stadiums, offices

FROM THE AP: Customers at the stores near Amazon’s campus in Washington can flash a palm for entry and to buy goods. The company chose palm recognition, according to Dilip Kumar, vice president of Physical Retail & Technology, because it’s more private than other biometric technology, and a person would be required to purposefully flash a palm at the Amazon One device to engage.

“AND IT’S CONTACTLESS, WHICH WE THINK CUSTOMERS WILL APPRECIATE, ESPECIALLY IN CURRENT TIMES,” KUMAR WROTE IN A BLOG POST TUESDAY.

The company expects to roll out Amazon One as an option in other Amazon stores in the coming months, which could mean Whole Foods Market grocery stores. But Amazon believes the technology is applicable elsewhere.

“In most retail environments, Amazon One could become an alternate payment or loyalty card option with a device at the checkout counter next to a traditional point of sale system,” Kumar wrote. “Or, for entering a location like a stadium or badging into work, Amazon One could be part of an existing entry point to make accessing the location quicker and easier.”

People can sign up for an Amazon One account with a mobile phone number and credit card. An Amazon account isn’t necessary

Turkey named ’biggest threat to Europe’ and EU territory as global tensions rise

September 23, 2020

Updated: 12 mins ago

Over recent weeks, fears of a World War 3 outbreak have been raised following the ongoing territorial disputes between Turkey and Greece. Ankara deployed the Oruç Reis vessel to the Mediterranean Sea to search for oil and gas.

After being escorted by gunboats, Greece called for Turkey to stop the “illegal activities”.

Although Nikos Dendias, the Greek foreign minister, insisted Greece wanted to work with Mr Erdogan, he argued only when the threat to the territorial integrity of the island nations was lifted.

In his latest column in the Independent, former British politician Denis MacShane said Turkey is Europe’s “biggest threat” by threatening almost everything Europes says.

He wrote: “By far the biggest threat to Europe – in terms of a foreign power that is threatening EU territory and almost everything Europe says it seeks to protect as its values – comes from Turkey.”

Mr MacShane went on to say he believes the main problem for Greece is Germany’s refusal to take a clear line.

He said: “The main problem for Greece is the refusal of Germany to take a clear line.

“German and EU hand-wringing on Turkey was confirmed in an interview with the main Greek paper Kathimerini when the director of the German Council on Foreign Relations, Daniela Schwarzer, also a special adviser to the EU foreign policy supremo, Josep Borrell, said proposals to put pressure or sanctions on Erdogan were ‘complex in a number of ways: whether they should be imposed, to what extent, under what terms – and under what terms they should be lifted’.

“She added; ‘We have not yet reached the point of broad and deep sanctions’.

 “In many EU capitals, the Greece-Turkey dispute is complicated, arcane and lost in every sense in many mists of history.”

Tensions intensified last month after Greece announced plans to expand its maritime borders in the Aegean Sea, sparking fears it could lead to war.

Under the United Nations Convention on the Law of the Sea, Athens is allowed to double its western territorial waters with Italy to 12 nautical miles.

It is believed, Greek Prime Minister Kyriakos Mitsotakis is wanting to extend its borders on the eastern side with Turkey.

Turkey’s foreign affairs minister Mevlüt Çavuşoğlu lashed out at Mr Mitsotakis’ plans claiming it will be the cause of war.

The dispute between Turkey and Greece has reached as far as France with Mr Erdogan lashing out at the French President Emmanuel Macron.

The Turkish leader claimed Mr Macron was pushing Greece into taking “wrong steps” in the region.

In response to this, Mr Macron urged for peaceful dialogue between the neighbouring countries and NATO allies.

Mr Macron wrote: “The situation in the eastern Mediterranean is worrying. 

“Turkey’s unilateral decisions on oil exploration are causing tensions.

“These must end in order to allow a peaceful dialogue between neighbouring countries and allies within NATO.

“I have decided to temporarily strengthen the French military presence in the Eastern Mediterranean in the coming days, in cooperation with European partners including Greece.”

At the end of August, EU member states agreed to issue sanctions against Ankara if they refuse to deescalate tensions on the region.

EU top diplomat Mr Borrell said: “We (the EU member states) are clear and determined in defending the European Union’s interests and solidarity with Greece and Cyprus.

“Turkey has to refrain from unilateral actions.

“This is a basic element to allow the dialogue to advance.”

He went on to say “the most pressing and urgent thing is to solve the question of the drillings and the presence of Turkish boats in Greek and Cypriot waters”.

OPERATION OVERTHROW: GEORGE SOROS FUNDED ‘TRANSITION INTEGRITY PROJECT’ HAS PLAN IN PLACE TO REMOVE TRUMP FROM OFFICE WHETHER HE WINS OR NOT

The Democrats, having now created the false narrative that Donald Trump would refuse to leave the White House should he lose the election, formed the Transition Integrity Project to have a framework in which to remove Trump, win or lose. That’s the game here, it is a real deal coup in progress. Plans to remove Trump from office, even if he wins the election, are well underway.

by Geoffrey Grider September 16, 2020

The ‘Transition Integrity Project’ group, funded by George Soros for the Democrats, used a role-playing game similar to a military style planning exercise, and concluded there will be a very disruptive and lawless 11 weeks between Election Day and Inauguration Day.

 

Major portions of this article were co-written with award-winning author Lori DeMonia. The level of research and attention to detail she provided made this article possible. I extend my most heartfelt appreciation to her for bringing all this to my attention, at exactly the right time.

The Transition Integrity Project group was formed in December 2019, is funded by George Soros and its formation speaks to the very false idea, created by Democrats, that Trump will not accept a Biden victory and refuse to leave office. Which is more likely translated into ‘they know he’ll be the clear winner as he was in 2016, but he needs to go anyway’. Despite trying to impeach him, follow-up plans were already underway to force him out no matter what, that was also the plan.

“Let every soul be subject unto the higher powers. For there is no power but of God: the powers that be are ordained of God. Whosoever therefore resisteth the power, resisteth the ordinance of God: and they that resist shall receive to themselves damnation.” Romans 13:1,2 (KJB)

The Democrats, having now created the false narrative that Donald Trump would refuse to leave the White House should he lose the election, together with George Soros, formed the Transition Integrity Project to have a framework in which they could remove Trump, win or lose. That’s the game here, it is a real-deal coup in progress. So no matter who wins in November, the Democrats will make sure that massive chaos and confusion begins immediately, as they attempt to install Kamala Harris as president. This is how the Democrats plan on taking control of the country on election night.

They war-gamed 4 basic scenarios as we see here below..

This Is How The Transition Integrity Project Sees November:

  • Game One: An ambiguous win by Biden. The first game investigated a scenario in which the outcome of the election remained unclear from election night and throughout game play.
  • Game Two: Clear Biden Victory. The Trump Campaign team again attempted to federalize the National Guard to end further vote counting and called on supporters to turn out in large numbers. The Biden Campaign established a bipartisan transition team and mobilized supporters to ensure vote counting was completed thoroughly. In this scenario, Biden won outright in the Electoral College and the popular vote.
  • Game Three: The third scenario posited a comfortable Electoral College victory for President Trump — 286-252 — but also a significant popular vote win—52% – 47%–for former Vice President Biden.
  • Game Four: Narrow Biden Win. The final scenario explored a narrow Biden win where he leads with less than 1% of the popular vote the day after the election, and is predicted to win 278 electoral votes.

67 people participated as “active players”, and many others were observers and gave feedback. John Podesta played the role of Joe Biden and a few others in attendance were Michael Steele, Donna Brazile, and former Hillary Clinton advisor Paul Eaton. Plans to remove Trump from office, even if he wins the election, are well underway. One highlight of the report states that “the concept of election night is no longer accurate and indeed dangerous”. The TIP report dated August 3, 2020 was made available to the public and details the “crisis scenario planning exercises”.

The Findings Of Their Report:

Among the findings we highlight in the report:

  • The concept of “election night,” is no longer accurate and indeed is dangerous. We face a period of contestation stretching from the first day a ballot is cast in mid-September until January 20. The winner may not, and we assess likely will not, be known on “election night” as officials count mail-in ballots. This period of uncertainty provides opportunities for an unscrupulous candidate to cast doubt on the legitimacy of the process and to set up an unprecedented assault on the outcome. Campaigns, parties, the press and the public must be educated to adjust expectations starting immediately.
  • A determined campaign has opportunity to contest the election into January 2021. We anticipate lawsuits, divergent media narratives, attempts to stop the counting of ballots, and protests drawing people from both sides. President Trump, the incumbent, will very likely use the executive branch to aid his campaign strategy, including through the Department of Justice. We assess that there is a chance the president will attempt to convince legislatures and/or governors to take actions – including illegal actions – to defy the popular vote. Federal laws provide little guidance for how Congress should resolve irregularities when they convene in a Joint Session on January 6, 2021. Of particular concern is how the military would respond in the context of uncertain election results. Here recent evidence offers some reassurance, but it is inconclusive.
  • The administrative transition process itself may be highly disrupted. Participants in our exercises of all backgrounds and ideologies believed that Trump would prioritize personal gain and self-protection over ensuring an orderly administrative hand-off to his successor. Trump may use pardons to thwart future criminal prosecution, arrange business deals with foreign governments that benefit him financially, attempt to bribe and silence associates, declassify sensitive documents, and attempt to divert federal funds to his own businesses. READ THE FULL REPORT HERE

They anticipate, with a high degree of certainty, that this November’s election will be marked by a chaotic legal and political landscape. They are warning us now, even though some dismiss this as conspiracy theory, what they intend to carry out. The report concludes that there needs to be a robust strategy to challenge the white supremacist and extremist networks that enabled Trump’s rise to power. One article depicted an image of Hitler next to Trump. Even the language in the report claiming Trump rose to power and wasn’t elected by the people shows how determined they are to remove him by any means. In the 22 page report the word violence was used 15 times and chaos 9 times.

So now a new playbook is being embraced. Supporting the public’s peaceful protests as well as blaming the Trump supporters for street level chaos is part of it. People taking to the streets in large numbers for an extended period of time, is already being prepared to intensify. A group called The Fight Back Table met recently to make their plans for the upcoming “mass public unrest”. The executive director of MoveOn.Org was a participant.

The group used the Transition Integrity Project report as part of their planning as they too prepare for the upcoming mass unrest and violence. Those in the media are priming and programming the public to the “Trump refusing to leave office” narrative. Remember the “no one is above the law” line during the impeachment attempt? Well, the new one will be “Trump’s refusing to leave office”.
