MAN OF SIN: EMMANUEL MACRON’S END TIMES DREAM OF A 10-NATION EUROPEAN ARMY GETS MAJOR BOOST FROM EUROPEAN COUNCIL ON FOREIGN RELATIONS

Of the 10 nations asked, 67 percent across all countries believe their own country could not rely on the US. Even in the UK, 74 percent of those asked issued their support for a EU-level defence force. Last week Mr Macron once against issued his support for a new defence strategy which may replace NATO. During the virtual G7 Summit with other leaders, Mr Macron once again issued his call for Europe to rely on its strategic security rather than the US.

by Geoffrey Grider February 23, 2021

Emmanuel Macron said “I am a defender of European sovereignty, of strategic autonomy, not because I’m against NATO or because I doubt our American friends, but because I am lucid on the state of the world.

For everyone who still continues to doubt our assessment of Emmanuel Macron being the biblical man of sin from 2 Thessalonians 2, we present to you this latest update regarding Macron’s plan for a United States of Europe with their own free-standing army. Now let me see, where have I read about that before?  Oh wait, now I remember.

“And the beast that was, and is not, even he is the eighth, and is of the seven, and goeth into perdition. 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 17:11-13 (KJB)

If you think this article is something, wait to you see the one we’re working on where Macron talked back in 2017 about the ‘Geist’ or the spirit entering into him to propel him to take command of all of Europe. Funny thing, because that’s exactly what your King James bible says will happen when the spirit of Judas Iscariot is released from ‘his own place’ and enters into Emmanuel Macron upgrading him from the ‘man of sin’ which is what he is right now, to the ‘son of perdition’ what he will be after we who are saved leave on Flight #777. That’s how close we are. Are you ready for what comes next?

“That he may take part of this ministry and apostleship, from which Judas by transgression fellthat he might go to his own place.” Acts 1:25 (KJB)

Emmanuel Macron’s EU army plans handed major boost – poll finds support growing

FROM DAILY EXPRESS UK: An EU army has long been contemplated in the bloc with French President Emmanuel Macron, being a key supporter of any plan. In a boost to the EU’s plans, two-thirds of those surveyed in a poll from the European Council on Foreign Relations (ECFR) think-tank, were supportive of a European-level defence force. In the poll which surveyed 15,000 people, the most supportive of a defence force within the EU were found to be Portugal (72 percent), Sweden (71 percent), Spain (71 percent), France (70 percent) and Poland (69 percent).

This comes in response to many within the poll claiming they could not rely on Washington as a strategic ally. When asked on their opinion on the EU’s security partnership with the US, just 10 percent viewed the US as a viable partner.

IN CONTRAST, OF THE 10 NATIONS ASKED, 67 PERCENT ACROSS ALL COUNTRIES BELIEVE THEIR OWN COUNTRY COULD NOT RELY ON THE US. EVEN IN THE UK, 74 PERCENT OF THOSE ASKED ISSUED THEIR SUPPORT FOR A EU-LEVEL DEFENCE FORCE.

Last week Mr Macron once against issued his support for a new defence strategy which may replace NATO. During the virtual G7 Summit with other leaders, Mr Macron once again issued his call for Europe to rely on its strategic security rather than the US.

He told the Financial Times: “I am a defender of European sovereignty, of strategic autonomy, not because I’m against NATO or because I doubt our American friends, but because I am lucid on the state of the world.

“BECAUSE I THINK WE NEED A FAIR SHARING OF THE BURDEN AND EUROPE CANNOT DELEGATE ITS PROTECTION AND THE PROTECTION OF ITS NEIGHBOURHOOD TO THE USA AND SO WE HAVE TO DO IT TOGETHER. NOBODY CAN TELL ME THAT TODAY’S NATO IS A STRUCTURE THAT, IN ITS FOUNDATIONS, IS STILL PERTINENT. IT WAS FOUNDED TO FACE DOWN THE WARSAW PACT. THERE IS NO MORE A WARSAW PACT.”

France’s EU Affairs minister Clement Beaune also echoed calls for an EU defence force amid the threats from China and Russia

RIGGED: TIME MAGAZINE POSTS SHOCKING ADMISSION THAT BIDEN ELECTION WAS ORCHESTRATED BY A ‘WELL-FUNDED SECRET CABAL’ THAT ‘CHANGED RULES AND LAWS’

Their work touched every aspect of the election. They got states to change voting systems and laws and helped secure hundreds of millions in public and private funding. They fended off voter-suppression lawsuits, recruited armies of poll workers and got millions of people to vote by mail for the first time. They successfully pressured social media companies to take a harder line against disinformation and used data-driven strategies to fight viral smears. They executed national public-awareness campaigns that helped Americans understand how the vote count would unfold over days or weeks, preventing Trump’s conspiracy theories and false claims of victory from getting more traction. After Election Day, they monitored every pressure point to ensure that Trump could not overturn the result.

by Geoffrey Grider February 5, 2021

Time magazine has published a detailed account of what it describes as a “conspiracy” between “left-wing activists and business titans” to create “an extraordinary shadow effort” to “protect” the 2020 presidential election of puppet Joe Biden.

 

Adolf Hitler said that he did what he did to ‘restore Germany’ and to ‘save the Reich’, but what he really did was overt criminal activities designed to transfer all power to himself. It is the same with the stunning admission in Time Magazine today that in order to ‘save the election’, a slithery cabal of Democrats took billions of dollars and rigged it from top to bottom. Thanks for admitting what we already knew.

“We are grateful to the Washington Post, the New York Times, Time Magazine and other great publications whose directors have attended our meetings and respected their promises of discretion for almost 40 years……It would have been impossible for us to develop our plan for the world if we had been subjected to the lights of publicity during those years. But, the world is more sophisticated and prepared to march towards a world government. The supranational sovereignty of an intellectual elite and world bankers is surely preferable to the national autodetermination practiced in past centuries.” ― David Rockefeller

So why are they coming out now and admitting the whole process was an orchestrated fraud? Because they’ve got the power now, and they know it cannot be taken away, and even if it could, the pusillanimous GOP doesn’t have the will or the stomach for the job. And Time Magazine? They’re the very same people that David Rockefeller thanked for agreeing to keep secret the New World Order meetings of the Bilderbergers.

You can erase ‘conspiracy theory’ from your dictionary now, it’s all true.

Time Magazine: ‘Secret,’ ‘Well-funded Cabal’ Worked to ‘Protect’ 2020 Election

FROM BREITBART NEWS: The New York Times had reported on the effort in January, referring to the “Democracy Defense Coalition.” The Daily Beast hinted at it in the fall. But the Time article is the most in-depth report at what others suggested was going on behind the scenes.

The article by Molly Ball, titled “The Secret History of the Shadow Campaign That Saved the 2020 Election,” presents the effort as a heroic effort to preserve a free and fair election, and to fend off President Donald Trump’s anticipated claims of fraud. You can erase ‘conspiracy theory’ from your dictionary now. It’s all true.

Ball’s description, however, also matches what she calls a “paranoid” view of an effort to make it difficult for Trump to win:

THE HANDSHAKE BETWEEN BUSINESS AND LABOR WAS JUST ONE COMPONENT OF A VAST, CROSS-PARTISAN CAMPAIGN TO PROTECT THE ELECTION–AN EXTRAORDINARY SHADOW EFFORT DEDICATED NOT TO WINNING THE VOTE BUT TO ENSURING IT WOULD BE FREE AND FAIR, CREDIBLE AND UNCORRUPTED. FOR MORE THAN A YEAR, A LOOSELY ORGANIZED COALITION OF OPERATIVES SCRAMBLED TO SHORE UP AMERICA’S INSTITUTIONS AS THEY CAME UNDER SIMULTANEOUS ATTACK FROM A REMORSELESS PANDEMIC AND AN AUTOCRATICALLY INCLINED PRESIDENT. THOUGH MUCH OF THIS ACTIVITY TOOK PLACE ON THE LEFT, IT WAS SEPARATE FROM THE BIDEN CAMPAIGN AND CROSSED IDEOLOGICAL LINES, WITH CRUCIAL CONTRIBUTIONS BY NONPARTISAN AND CONSERVATIVE ACTORS.

THEIR WORK TOUCHED EVERY ASPECT OF THE ELECTION. THEY GOT STATES TO CHANGE VOTING SYSTEMS AND LAWS AND HELPED SECURE HUNDREDS OF MILLIONS IN PUBLIC AND PRIVATE FUNDING. THEY FENDED OFF VOTER-SUPPRESSION LAWSUITS, RECRUITED ARMIES OF POLL WORKERS AND GOT MILLIONS OF PEOPLE TO VOTE BY MAIL FOR THE FIRST TIME. THEY SUCCESSFULLY PRESSURED SOCIAL MEDIA COMPANIES TO TAKE A HARDER LINE AGAINST DISINFORMATION AND USED DATA-DRIVEN STRATEGIES TO FIGHT VIRAL SMEARS. THEY EXECUTED NATIONAL PUBLIC-AWARENESS CAMPAIGNS THAT HELPED AMERICANS UNDERSTAND HOW THE VOTE COUNT WOULD UNFOLD OVER DAYS OR WEEKS, PREVENTING TRUMP’S CONSPIRACY THEORIES AND FALSE CLAIMS OF VICTORY FROM GETTING MORE TRACTION. AFTER ELECTION DAY, THEY MONITORED EVERY PRESSURE POINT TO ENSURE THAT TRUMP COULD NOT OVERTURN THE RESULT.

THAT’S WHY THE PARTICIPANTS WANT THE SECRET HISTORY OF THE 2020 ELECTION TOLD, EVEN THOUGH IT SOUNDS LIKE A PARANOID FEVER DREAM–A WELL-FUNDED CABAL OF POWERFUL PEOPLE, RANGING ACROSS INDUSTRIES AND IDEOLOGIES, WORKING TOGETHER BEHIND THE SCENES TO INFLUENCE PERCEPTIONS, CHANGE RULES AND LAWS, STEER MEDIA COVERAGE AND CONTROL THE FLOW OF INFORMATION. THEY WERE NOT RIGGING THE ELECTION; THEY WERE FORTIFYING IT. AND THEY BELIEVE THE PUBLIC NEEDS TO UNDERSTAND THE SYSTEM’S FRAGILITY IN ORDER TO ENSURE THAT DEMOCRACY IN AMERICA ENDURES.

Ball describes the participants in this plan as “democracy campaigners.” It was led by Mike Podhorzer, a “senior adviser to the president of the AFL-CIO,” one of the nation’s most powerful labor unions, aligned with the Democratic Party.

Ball notes:

IN HIS APARTMENT IN THE D.C. SUBURBS, PODHORZER BEGAN WORKING FROM HIS LAPTOP AT HIS KITCHEN TABLE, HOLDING BACK-TO-BACK ZOOM MEETINGS FOR HOURS A DAY WITH HIS NETWORK OF CONTACTS ACROSS THE PROGRESSIVE UNIVERSE: THE LABOR MOVEMENT; THE INSTITUTIONAL LEFT, LIKE PLANNED PARENTHOOD AND GREENPEACE; RESISTANCE GROUPS LIKE INDIVISIBLE AND MOVEON; PROGRESSIVE DATA GEEKS AND STRATEGISTS, REPRESENTATIVES OF DONORS AND FOUNDATIONS, STATE-LEVEL GRASSROOTS ORGANIZERS, RACIAL-JUSTICE ACTIVISTS AND OTHERS.

By April, she notes, Podhorzer was hosting two-and-a-half-hour Zoom meetings with other participants in the project. They pushed Congress to fund vote by mail, and persuaded Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg to contributed hundreds of millions of dollars to “election administration funding.” (As Breitbart News warned, Zuckerberg’s donations looked more like a Democrat get-out-the-vote effort, and was aimed primarily at Democrat-heavy counties in key battleground states.)

The campaign also used legal efforts to change voting procedures during the COVID pandemic, leading to a “revolution” in mail-in voting: ” Only a quarter of voters cast their ballots the traditional way: in person on Election Day,” Ball notes.

The group also used a “nameless, secret project” to fight “disinformation.” Their method was “to pressure platforms to enforce their rules, both by removing content or accounts that spread disinformation.” Ball does not mention the New York Post‘s story about Hunter Biden’s laptop, but tech companies, mainstream media outlets, and former intelligence officials leapt in October to call the laptop potential Russian “disinformation,” and to suppress it. Twitter blocked links to the story, and also locked the Post out of its account for more than two weeks. The story was later shown to be true, with Hunter Biden announcing — after the election — that he was under FBI investigation.

THE GROUP ALSO DECIDED TO EXPLOIT THE VIOLENT UNREST THAT SPREAD ACROSS THE NATION IN THE WAKE OF GEORGE FLOYD’S DEATH IN MAY, AND TOOK STEPS “TO HARNESS ITS MOMENTUM FOR THE ELECTION WITHOUT ALLOWING IT TO BE CO-OPTED BY POLITICIANS.”

Toward the end of the election, Ball reports, the U.S. Chamber of Commerce set aside old disputes to join the AFL-CIO in creating an alliance to reject claims of election fraud. Ball notes that some Republicans also aided in the effort. As Breitbart News reported at the time, there was a nationwide left-wing movement to unleash more unrest if Trump claimed victory in a close election. Ball’s reporting confirms that the “shadow” effort was coordinating such efforts. She adds that the “national mobilization network” was told to “stand down” after it appeared Biden would be the winner.

Later, she says, Podhorzer’s network decided to make sure there were few counter-demonstrators at the January 6 “Stop the Steal” demonstration in Washington, DC, ensuring that blame for what happened would be placed on Trump alone.

Davos ‘Great Reset’ conference opened by China’s Xi

Communist leader urges world to ‘stand united and work together’

By Art Moore
Published January 25, 2021 at 8:28pm

The World Economic Forum opened a virtual conference on Monday featuring its Great Reset initiative with a speech from China’s president and general secretary of the Communist Party, Xi Jinping.

WEF founder Klaus Schwab introduced Xi by commending China for its “many initiatives” undertaken “in the spirit of creating a world where all actors assume a responsible and responsive role.”

“Mr. President, I believe this is the time to reset our policies and to work jointly for a peaceful and prosperous world,” Schwab said.

Schwab’s reference to “reset” is the “Great Reset of capitalism” he called for last year to “reform” the world’s democratic systems in response to the coronavirus pandemic.

Schwab, who hosts the annual conference in Davos, Switzerland, of the world’s most influential political and business leaders, said in his introductory remarks that 2021 “will be the critical year to reestablish trust in our ability to shape our common future in collective and constructive ways” and to “accelerate the transition to a net-zero economy.”

“In view of this objective,” he said, it was his “honor” to introduce the communist leader.

Due to COVID-19, the in-person conference in the Swiss Alps has been replaced this year by the virtual “Davos Agenda” conference this week followed by an in-person “Davos in Asia” summit in Singapore in May.

Schwab said that in the last four years since Xi’s “historic speech in Davos 2017,” the world “has become more independent and more fractured and polarized.”

No doubt alluding to the global leadership of President Trump, who confronted China economically and politically, Schwab said “polarization
“has created the age of disagreement, which threatened to derail humanity.”

“Now, we must come together to ensure that we capture the moment and move into the age of collaboration to build a better world,” the WEF founder said.

In his remarks, Xi urged the global community to put differences aside, warning history shows countries that go it alone “will always fail.”

“As we cope with the current crisis and endeavor to make a better day for everyone, we need to stand united and work together,” the Chinese leader said.

“We have been shown time and again that to beggar thy neighbor, to go it alone and to slip into arrogant isolation will always fail. Let us all join hands and let multilateralism light our way toward a community with a shared future for mankind,” said Xi.

After engaging in a trade war and designating China the No. 1 U.S. enemy, the Trump administration closed with declaring the communist regime is committing genocide against its Muslim Uyghur population.

See the “Davos Agenda” opening:

Every country, industry ‘must be transformed’

Introducing the “Great Reset” initiative last June, Schwab wrote that the COVID-19 lockdowns “may be gradually easing, but anxiety about the world’s social and economic prospects is only intensifying,” warning a “sharp economic downturn has already begun, and we could be facing the worst depression since the 1930s.”

“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,” Klaus said at the time.

“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 said.

The United States, however, acheived the “V-shaped recovery” in Gross Domestic Product promised by President Trump, with a record 33.1% GDP increase in the third quarter, at an annualized rate, after a 32.8% dive in the second.

But WEF said in December the need in a post-coronavirus world for “global leaders to come together to design a common recovery path and shape the Great Reset” has never been greater.

‘Unique window of opportunity’

On its “Great Reset” webpage, WEF states that as the world enters 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.”

Kerry: Biden will propel ‘Great Reset’

In November, WND reported, former Secretary of State John Kerry and European Commission President Ursula von der Leyen said a Joe Biden presidency would help propel the “Great Reset” plan.

“The notion of a reset is more important than ever before,” Kerry said in a World Economic Forum panel. “I personally believe … we’re at the dawn of an extremely exciting time.”

Kerry said Biden is ready to rejoin the Paris Climate Accord, which would help drive the “Great Reset.” But rejoining Paris is “not enough,” Kerry said.

“The Biden administration will focus on every sector of the American economy,” he said. “There will be a 2035 goal to achieve net neutrality with respect to power and production.

Kerry said the U.S. is “ready to come back in and help to lead and raise the ambition in Glasgow to accelerate this incredible capacity for a transformation in the private sector.”

Dr. Anthony Fauci, the White House coronavirus adviser, has called for “radical changes” in the “infrastructures of human existence” in the wake of the coronavirus pandemic.

He made the statement in an article the scientific journal Cell.

At a conference at Yale University in October, Fauci was asked when the nation could go back to normal. He said Americans won’t be wearing masks “forever” but probably would need to continue with masks and social distancing measures through 2021.

We can’t just go “wherever we want,” he said.

Fauci said the United States needed to increase “international engagement.”

‘The final garrison’

Meanwhile, Roman Catholic Archbishop Carlo Maria Viganò, a former papal ambassador to the United States, warned President Trump in October that he is “the final garrison” against the “Great Reset.”

In an open letter to Trump, the archbishop said globalists are creating a “health dictatorship” to combat the virus, threatening the sovereignty of nations and religious freedom.

Last week, Cardinal Raymond Burke called the “Great Reset” an attempt to manipulate “citizens and nations through ignorance and fear” as Marxist materialism takes hold in the United States, Newsmax reported.

Burke, the former archbishop of St. Louis and now a member of the highest judicial authority in the Roman Catholic Church, said in a homily Dec. 12 that the “worldwide spread of Marxist materialism … now seems to seize the governing power over our nation.”

Vigano wrote a letter to Trump in May warning that the COVID-19 pandemic was being used to usher in a “world government” stripping people of their freedoms. In a letter in June, he encouraged Trump in his fight against the “Deep State.”

Democrats launch campaign to change Constitution, abolish Electoral College

‘Americans expect and deserve the winner of the popular vote to win office’

By Bob Unruh
Published January 13, 2021 at 9:42pm

Democrats, who long have chafed under the stipulations of the Constitution that make the United States a constitutional republic rather than a democracy, have introduced a House resolution to abolish the Electoral College and exchange it with a national popular vote for president and vice president.

The resolution, led by Rep. Steve Cohen, D-Tenn., claims that the “development of mass media and the internet has made information about Presidential candidates easily accessible to United States citizens across the country and around the world,” the Washington Examiner reported.

While Democrats now have the majority in the House and Senate as well as the White House, the measure is not likely to succeed because a constitutional amendment must be ratified by two-thirds of the states.

The Electoral College was established as a compromise between those who wanted the president elected by a vote in Congress and those who sought a direct vote.

Cohen contends the Electoral College now is an “anachronism,” and the Constitution already has been changed, for example, to allow citizens of all races and women to vote.

The resolution states:

Whereas the Founders of the Nation established the electoral college in an era of limited nationwide communication and information sharing; Whereas the electoral college is premised on an antiquated theory that citizens will have a better chance of knowing about electors from their home States than about Presidential candidates from out of State; Whereas the development of mass media and the internet has made information about Presidential candidates easily accessible to United States citizens across the country and around the world; Whereas citizens now have a far better chance of knowing about out-of-State Presidential candidates than about Presidential electors from their home State.

Proponents of the Electoral College argue, among other things, that it prevents the nation’s large population centers from deciding elections, giving weight to the votes of smaller states.

Democrats also have been promoting an agreement, called the National Popular Vote, in which states would give all of their Electoral College votes to the winner of the national popular vote.

“Americans expect and deserve the winner of the popular vote to win office,” Cohen said.

“The president should always be elected by the people, not the politicians, and the Electoral College allows politicians to make the ultimate decision.”

The resolution has been assigned to the House Judiciary Committee.

January 6: A Crossroads Not Just for USA, But for Prophecy As Well

BY MARK DAVIDSON on JANUARY 4, 2021 • ( 0 )

We as a Christian prophecy community are watching for the Second Signpost.
Two days from now, January 6, 2021, will be a day of crossroads—not only for the United States but interestingly for contemporary prophecy as well.


USA At a Crossroad
Because of the advance of evil in this country in the form of generally collectivism, and more specifically Marxism, the US has come to this point where the constitutional republic may actually be lost.


If you doubt its most current form working in this country, look no further than the “woke” community with its charges of racism and forcing of transgenderism. Marxism needs a victim class and a rich class. Since the American worker is generally happy, Marxists had to create a new victim/rich class—that is, women, minorities, and immigrants being the “victims” to racist white men. Ridiculous, but nevertheless there it is.


Marxism is evil due to its envy manifesting as theft of private property, and extreme pride resulting in wholesale murder. Mankind has witnessed in the last century a couple dozen times in which it was tried and it always resulted in misery and murder. And now its extreme pride which causes its proponents to say everyone must think the way they do, has compromised the elections in six “battleground” states: Pennsylvania, Georgia, Michigan, Wisconsin, Arizona, and Nevada.


The courts won’t touch these lawsuits either due to the courts themselves are leftists, or they are conservatives afraid of being attacked in their private, personal lives.


So it has come down to January 6, the date at which both houses of Congress will certify, or not, the electors coming from the states.


Trump could still win reelection if the Republicans have a spine or if they all cared. And this is the danger—historically Republicans have only cared about themselves or don’t believe in anything. This is why over the last hundred years as the Left advanced their agenda every time the Presidency and Congress was theirs, these advances were not rolled back but allowed to stay whenever the Presidency and Congress were Republican.


And if the Presidency and Senate is won by the Left that may spell the end of the republic because the Left has got to the place where it will not let go of power. As Mark Levin said, we are staring at an abyss. States will be added, the Supreme Court will be packed, the Senate filibuster will be ended, and the Electoral College will be assaulted.


Of course, the Left winning has a direct impact on the Second Signpost, for the CCP-compromised Biden and his cronies may very well let Iran run out over the Middle East because the CCP told them to. What if there was no one to stop the ram because the only power that could was compromised by another power?


Prophecy At a Crossroad
The prophecy community that visits this website is in some ways a microcosm of evangelical Christianity in general in this country. Both here and in the country as a whole, opinions vary as to what will happen here in this country in the years prior to Christ’s return.


There are two camps. One says the USA is headed to judgment if we do not repent. The other says great days are just ahead for the USA.


The former position is held by many. Not only that but the Four Signposts of Daniel Revisited suggest that the USA will be in trouble (I wrote about this here). The findings shown in Chronicles also show that the USA will be in deep trouble with its people descending into great poverty.


The other prophecy camp shows great optimism for the future of the USA. What would drive this idea? General optimism may be one. Another might be American hubris which is driven by the normalcy bias. Yet another I’ve seen many times are all the people claiming to be prophets giving words saying the USA will have great blessing in the years ahead.


Both camps cannot be right.


Conclusion
The events of January 6 may give us more clarity as to which path the USA will travel.
If Trump wins and the Republicans hold the Senate, we stay the present course. The USA may indeed have a few good years ahead, and the Second Signpost may happen via a war between the USA and Iran in which Iran wins.


But if Biden wins and the Left takes the Senate, this will likely be the signal that (a) the Second Signpost can proceed at any time due to Biden appeasing Iran and/or China, and (b) the end of the republic due to elements on the Left basically telling the American people elections don’t matter and normal Americans responding to this challenge.


If the Left wins the election and takes over, time may show us all the contemporary prophecies telling us of America’s future wealth and power are all for naught.
January 6 indeed gives us a crossroad.

How elites are leveraging COVID to ‘Reset’ the world

David Kupelian lays out momentous choices facing Americans in the new year

By David Kupelian
Published January 3, 2021 at 2:37pm

Looking back at 2020, it’s undeniable that this has been one of the strangest years in American history – from January’s sham presidential impeachment, to the coronavirus pandemic and economy-destroying national lockdown, to widespread hysterical demands to “defund the police” while Marxist mobs burned and looted American cities, to Big Tech scandalously suppressing journalism it doesn’t like, to Big Media openly siding with the senile and corrupt Joe Biden while portraying President Donald Trump as a mentally ill, racist would-be dictator, to November’s breathtakingly rigged election – likely the most crooked and corrupt in our history.

In between these wall-to-wall crises, blue-state mayors and governors still found time to close churches while keeping strip clubs open, destroy as many small businesses as possible while encouraging rioting, and threaten law-abiding citizens with arrest and imprisonment for having too many people in their home for Thanksgiving or Christmas.

The widespread anxiety, confusion, distrust, and most of all, anger and fear resulting from these events all but guarantees ongoing division and violence throughout America, if not outright civil war. It’s been well over a century since American national politics was this ugly and explosive.

Yet what is happening in our nation today cannot truly be understood by looking at it through a political lens.

It’s often said “politics is downstream from culture” – that is, a society’s political life reflects its citizens’ deeply held cultural values. But culture in turn is downstream from religion, which represents the “unseen realm” of ultimate issues like good and evil, sin and redemption, the origin, meaning and purpose of life, and where we spend eternity. This all-important moral-spiritual dimension in which human beings uniquely dwell is the only frame of reference by which one can really comprehend what is happening in America right now.

For the great war in which Americans are engaged is not left versus right, Democrat versus Republican, or Trump supporters versus Biden supporters. Rather, it is one of good versus evil. And as usual, it features a great evil masquerading as noble and good, while accusing what is good and decent of being immoral and reprobate. It’s a classic case of projection – evil pretending to be good while condemning good as evil.

Which brings us to the “Great Reset.”

What we cryptically call “the left” is, of course, always trying to “reset,” “reform” or “transform” the world, as it is a fundamentally revolutionary worldview. Barack Obama, just prior to being elected president in 2008, famously said, “We are five days away from fundamentally transforming the United States of America.” Today, Joe Biden likewise insists he wants to “transform” America. Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer, breathlessly anticipating the upcoming Georgia runoff races that will determine control of the U.S. Senate, announced with a flourish: “Now we take Georgia, and then we change America!”

What are they all talking about? In a world of very deeply flawed human beings, America has already been blessed with the most enlightened, noble, moral, compassionate and liberty-preserving political and economic system in world history.

Superficially, those on the hard left claim they want a socialist utopia (though most avoid the word “socialist”) where justice and equality prevail. But that’s not the prize they truly seek. Let’s take a closer look.

‘Build back

In the case of the “Great Reset,” global elites, including right here in America, are intent on leveraging the coronavirus pandemic into a completely new world system.

The first and most pivotal phase of the Great Reset plan under cover of COVID is, of course, winning the 2020 presidential election through a dizzyingly multifaceted attack on the integrity of the U.S. election system itself, on top of a unified campaign by Big Media and Big Tech to elect Joe Biden at all costs.

Whereas Trump, as president, has represented “America First” and all the traditional moral and constitutional underpinnings of genuine American greatness, Biden is fully on board with the “Great Reset.”

In fact, Biden’s campaign chose as its official campaign slogan the seemingly innocuous phrase, “Build Back Better.”

“Build Back Better” is literally the slogan of the “Great Reset,” coined by its originator and main advocate, World Economic Forum founder Klaus Schwab.

Under cover of the COVID-19 pandemic, Schwab insists the entire world must “act jointly and swiftly to revamp all aspects of our societies and economies,” meaning, as he explains, “we need a ‘Great Reset’ of capitalism.” In other words, socialism.

Indeed, right now, the elite class in America and around the world is planning – in fact, openly bragging about – the “Great Reset,” whereby they intend to leverage the COVID era’s widespread public fears and government’s rampant emergency powers to “reset” the world’s economic, social and governmental systems to institute a “more just” global socialist utopia – run by them.

Schwab, patriarch of the “Great Reset,” explains: “The level of cooperation and ambition this implies is unprecedented. But it is not some impossible dream. In fact, one silver lining of the pandemic is that it has shown how quickly we can make radical changes to our lifestyles. Almost instantly, the crisis forced businesses and individuals to abandon practices long claimed to be essential, from frequent air travel to working in an office.”

“Every country,” insists Schwab, “from the United States to China, must participate, and every industry, from oil and gas to tech, must be transformed.”

Prince Charles is a key advocate for the Great Reset, as is International Monetary Fund chief economist Gina Gopinath, U.N. Secretary General António Guterres, as well as heads of many major corporations, including Microsoft.

Former Secretary of State John Kerry is all in, recently exclaiming: “The notion of a reset is more important than ever before. I personally believe … we’re at the dawn of an extremely exciting time.”

In fact, during a World Economic Forum panel discussion in mid-November, Kerry – who figures to be a special presidential envoy for Biden on climate issues – publicly affirmed not only that the Biden administration will support the Great Reset, but that it “will happen with greater speed and with greater intensity than a lot of people might imagine.”

Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau is remarkably frank about the subterfuge under which the global Reset elites are operating: “This pandemic has provided an opportunity for a reset. This is our chance to accelerate our pre-pandemic efforts to reimagine our economic systems that actually address global challenges like extreme poverty, inequality and climate change.”

Many might ask, what’s wrong with combatting poverty and inequality?

What many Democrat Party voters – especially younger millennials – naively fail to comprehend is twofold: First, not only doesn’t socialism cure poverty – in fact, it creates it – but socialism also necessitates turning a society into a totalitarian dictatorship; after all, radical wealth redistribution only occurs when the brute power of government compels it.

But even more fundamentally, the world’s elites do not really want equality for everybody. Historically, from Stalin to Mao to Chavez, Marxist/socialist leaders have never been truly interested in everyone being equal. That’s just happy-talk to seduce the masses. They want, first and foremost, power, they want wealth and privilege for themselves, they want glory, they want revenge on their enemies, and they want worship.

In a word, they want to be gods.

Which brings us to the nuclear core of the issue: The original temptation in the Garden of Eden was, “Ye shall be as gods.” (Genesis 3:5)

But when humans try to become gods, they turn into devils. Indeed, from abortion up to the moment of birth to the celebration of transgenderism to mandatory gun confiscation to the outright suppression of free speech, today’s Democratic Party increasingly is promoting policies and agendas that are either insane or evil – or both.

Evangelist Franklin Graham recently urged Georgia voters to reject what he called the “demonic” agenda of the Democratic Party in the two January elections to determine the majority in the U.S. Senate.

“I hope the church and all Georgians will see through this demonic-driven abortion agenda,” he said. “This is not just a political issue, it is a moral and biblical issue. We need leadership in our nation that sees the wisdom in defending life.”

Graham, the CEO of the Billy Graham Evangelistic Association and Samaritan’s Purse, noted that Senate candidate “Rev.” Raphael Warnock had tweeted his support for “reproductive justice.”

“Justice”? What an ironic term to use, when abortion represents the biggest and most significant injustice of our time, and perhaps in all of American history – the genocide of tens of millions of innocent human babies.

Summarizing America’s current state, Los Angeles mega-pastor John MacArthur recently told Laura Ingraham: “America’s in a moral free fall. … You murder the babies in the womb. If they survive the womb, you try to seduce them into transgender sexual deviation when they’re young. If they survive that, you corrupt them with a godless education. If they survive that, you have divorce in the family. And if they grow to be adults, we drown them in a sea of pornography. This is a nation so far down in the sewer of immorality and wickedness that nothing surprises me.”

Barring a spiritual-cultural turnaround in the United States of America, where is all this leading?

A barcode for every human on the planet?

Since the coronavirus originated in China, and since Joe Biden is profoundly compromised with regard to China because of his family’s corrupt financial activities with that nation, and since Big Tech and so many U.S.-based mega-companies are in total thrall to China both for its vast retail markets and its cheap labor pool, it is reasonable to wonder: How exactly does China fit into the plan to “reset” the world under cover of COVID?

That’s easy: China is the leader.

Recently, in a chilling story headlined “Give Everyone a Barcode? China Trying to Use COVID Fears to Launch Global Tracking System for Humans,” the Christian Broadcast Network reported: “China’s communist leader Xi Jinping is calling for countries across the world to accept a global COVID-19 tracking system that uses QR codes in an attempt to expedite international travel.”

It was during a Nov. 21 virtual G20 leaders’ meeting that Xi proposed the “global mechanism” to deploy an electronic barcode that would help determine travelers’ health status.

“China has proposed a global mechanism on the mutual recognition of health certificates based on nucleic acid test results in the form of internationally accepted QR codes. We hope more countries will join this mechanism,” Xi said, according to the CBN report, which explained:

The system provides users with a color code based on their risk of exposure to the coronavirus and the QR codes, or bar codes can be read on mobile devices.

A green code indicates that someone is safe to travel, while an orange or red code signifies the need to quarantine for up to two weeks.

Xi didn’t elaborate on the type of app or QR code system that would be used and who would design it.

Not everyone is thrilled with a brutal communist dictator, one openly bent on ruling the entire planet, launching such a new surveillance and people control system.

As CBN reported, Human Rights Watch executive director Kenneth Roth tweeted, “Beware of the Chinese government’s proposal for a global QR code system. An initial focus on health could easily become a Trojan Horse for broader political monitoring and exclusion, akin to the dangers associated with China’s social-credit system.”

And according to some Christians, the report concluded, such technology-driven measures and tracking systems look a lot like “another step toward the fulfillment of the End Times ‘Mark of the Beast’ prophesied 2,000 years ago in the biblical book of Revelation.”

Revelation 13:16-17 famously warns: “It also forced all people, great and small, rich and poor, free and slave, to receive a mark on their right hands or on their foreheads, so that they could not buy or sell unless they had the mark, which is the name of the beast or the number of its name.”

Conclusion

Is “The Great Reset” inevitable? Not in America – unless 74 million American adults who voted for Donald Trump throw up their hands and resign themselves to a rapid decline and ultimate loss of the nation they labored to build, and in many cases fought and bled to defend.

America is still home to tens of millions of praying, Bible-believing, freedom-loving, right-thinking Americans. Rage and violence are not the answer, but boldly – as happy warriors – standing up for truth and for the nation that has blessed us all is now the order of the day, and will remain so for a long time to come.

America indeed needs a great reset, but not one envisioned by deluded, power-obsessed, sociopathic elites. Rather, the reset we truly need is a repentance-fueled revival that will invite God’s renewed blessing on us and restore our nation to its former greatness and goodness.

NOW GET READY FOR A VERY FRAIL JOE BIDEN TO BECOME THE TEMPORARY PRESIDENT AS KAMALA HARRIS AND THE PROGRESSIVES PREPARE TO TAKE EVERYTHING OVER

Are you starting to see the picture now? Joe Biden has to win, as crooked as it may be, because the New World Order cannot rise under Donald Trump, but let me tell you something else. No matter who is actually president, Joe Biden, Kamala Harris or Donald Trump, it all takes you to the same place eventually. Who was it that created Operation Warp Speed and the Messenger 33 coronavirus vaccine that leads you to the Mark of the Beast? Trump. Who was it that created the Abraham Accords that will lead you to the Daniel 9:27 (KJB) covenant? Trump. All these things are happening because God’s judgment is active and working to accomplish His will.

by Geoffrey Grider December 15, 2020

Now the last free nation on earth, America, is going to take its place in line along with all the other nations in the New World Order, so that God’s judgment will be fulfilled.

I want to write today to everyone that is feeling anger, hurt and/or confusion over the drama that is being played out across America right now with this stolen election, and remind you of a few very important things you might have forgotten or overlooked. Did the Democrats steal this election? Absolutely, no question about it, but it goes deeper than the Democrats and Progressives and their plan to create a Marxist state. What is happening right now is the active judgment of God, and we told you to prepare yourself for it. Don’t be so surprised that it’s here.

“Daniel answered and said, Blessed be the name of God for ever and ever: for wisdom and might are his: 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: He revealeth the deep and secret things: he knoweth what is in the darkness, and the light dwelleth with him.” Daniel 2:20-22 (KJB)

For over a decade now, we here at Now The End Begins have told you of the plan by the global elites of the Deep State to bring in the New World Order, a plan that went fully active in 2020. Please allow me to remind you of the original banner art we placed on NTEB back from the very beginning in 2009, here it is, take a look, and pay close attention to what is written in the bottom left hand corner:

So you see, none of what happening right now is new, this has always been the plan and it has been steadily unfolding since the start of the 20th century. When God placed Donald Trump into office in 2016, as we told you would happen, we also told you that it was a global judgment on the world. Why? Because now the last free nation on earth, America, is going to take its place in line along with all the other nations in the New World Order, so that God’s judgment will be fulfilled. This is what the Great Reset is all about, and America has to fall in order to bring that about.

“And it shall come to pass in that day, that I will seek to destroy all the nations that come against Jerusalem.” Zechariah 12:9 (KJB)

“Therefore wait ye upon me, saith the LORD, until the day that I rise up to the prey: for my determination is to gather the nations, that I may assemble the kingdoms, to pour upon them mine indignation, even all my fierce anger: for all the earth shall be devoured with the fire of my jealousy. For then will I turn to the people a pure language, that they may all call upon the name of the LORD, to serve him with one consent.” Zephaniah 3:8,9 (KJB)

Are you starting to see the picture now? Joe Biden has to win, as crooked as it may be, because the New World Order cannot rise under Donald Trump, but let me tell you something else. No matter who is actually president, Joe BidenKamala Harris or Donald Trump, it all takes you to the same place eventually. Who was it that created Operation Warp Speed and the Messenger 33 coronavirus vaccine that leads you to the Mark of the Beast? Trump. Who was it that created the Abraham Accords that will lead you to the Daniel 9:27 (KJB) covenant? Trump. All these things are happening because God’s judgment is active and working to accomplish His will. Joe Biden and Donald Trump ultimately take you to the same place, it’s just that you feel better with Trump. Don’t get mad at me for telling you the truth.

“Am I therefore become your enemy, because I tell you the truth?” Galatians 4:16 (KJB)

The coming year of 2021 will be many times more intense that 2020 has been so far, with the stakes far greater and higher. In 2021 we will see the Messenger 33 vaccine made mandatory, the establishment of Green, Yellow and Red occupation zones, and foreign troops from nations like China and Russia will soon be stationed outside our borders. Joe Biden and Kamala Harris are going to give away the store to the Marxists, that’s a guarantee. So you need to resolve in your mind right now what you believe, and what side you are on.

Let your passion burn for the things of the Lord, not the things of this world. Jesus gives out no crowns for American patriotism at the Judgment Seat of Christ, and when the Bible tells you that all the nations of the world will come against Israel, that’s means all the nations of the world including the United States of America. God has only ever made a covenant with one nation, Israel, America has no such covenant with God, and never did. 2 Chronicles 7:14 can only be applied to one nation, Israel. You are deluded and deceived if you think that verse will ever apply to America, it won’t.

“If my people, which are called by my name, shall humble themselves, and pray, and seek my face, and turn from their wicked ways; then will I hear from heaven, and will forgive their sin, and will heal their land.” 2 Chronicles 7:14 (KJB)

YOU CANNOT COMPLETE THE GREAT RESET UNTIL AMERICA IS PLACED UNDER UNITED NATIONS AUTHORITY, AND JOE BIDEN PLEDGED TUESDAY TO MAKE THAT A REALITY

According to a readout of the call, Biden thanked Guterres for his praise and said he looked forward to a new era of cooperation. “They discussed the need for a strengthened partnership between the United States and the United Nations on urgent global issues, including combatting COVID-19 and building resilience to future public health challenges, confronting the threat of climate change, addressing humanitarian need, advancing sustainable development, upholding peace and security and resolving conflicts; and promoting democracy and human rights,” the readout said.

by Geoffrey Grider December 2, 2020

Former Vice President Joe Biden spoke with U.N. Secretary-General Antonio Guterres on Tuesday, promising a “strengthened partnership” on a host of issues from coronavirus to climate, all predicated on a resumption of access to U.S. taxpayer dollars.

As we have long told you, you cannot have the New World Order until the Great Reset is completed, and the Great Reset cannot be completed while America remains outside the global authority of the United Nations. On Tuesday, Joe Biden in a phone call with UN Secretary-General Antonio Guterres pledged to reverse all Trump-era policies related to our national sovereignty and agree to form a ‘new partnership’ with the globalist parasites of the United Nations. Did you know that the UN is foretold in the bible? Take a look and see:

“Therefore wait ye upon me, saith the LORD, until the day that I rise up to the prey: for my determination is to gather the nations, that I may assemble the kingdoms, to pour upon them mine indignationeven all my fierce anger: for all the earth shall be devoured with the fire of my jealousy.” Zephaniah 3:8 (KJB)

The prophet Zephaniah tells us God will ‘gather the nations’ in the end of time, that took place on October 24th in 1945 with the creation of the United Nations in New York City. Zephaniah further tells us that God will ‘assemble the kingdoms’, so the United Nations call themselves the General Assembly. They have taken the bait, the trap is set, and during the time of the coming Great Tribulation after the Pretribulation Rapture of the Church, every member of the United Nations will march under Antichrist and come against Israel. Joe Biden is playing his small but meaningful role in helping to bring this about.

“He which testifieth these things saith, Surely I come quickly. Amen. Even so, come, Lord Jesus.” Revelation 22:21 (KJB)

Joe Biden Rushes to Embrace U.N. and Burnish Globalist Ambitions

FROM BREITBART NEWS: According to a readout of the call, Biden thanked Guterres for his praise and said he looked forward to a new era of cooperation.

“THEY DISCUSSED THE NEED FOR A STRENGTHENED PARTNERSHIP BETWEEN THE UNITED STATES AND THE UNITED NATIONS ON URGENT GLOBAL ISSUES, INCLUDING COMBATTING COVID-19 AND BUILDING RESILIENCE TO FUTURE PUBLIC HEALTH CHALLENGES, CONFRONTING THE THREAT OF CLIMATE CHANGE, ADDRESSING HUMANITARIAN NEED, ADVANCING SUSTAINABLE DEVELOPMENT, UPHOLDING PEACE AND SECURITY AND RESOLVING CONFLICTS; AND PROMOTING DEMOCRACY AND HUMAN RIGHTS,” THE READOUT SAID.

Biden’s warm embrace of the U.N. and its ambitions stands in contrast to U.S. President Donald Trump who has been highly critical of the organization, calling it to account and withdrawing the U.S. from key U.N. agencies and agreements while cutting funding to bloated U.N. bureaucracies.

.@ANTONIOGUTERRES SPOKE TO @JOEBIDEN TO EXTEND HIS PERSONAL CONGRATULATIONS TO THE PRESIDENT-ELECT. GUTERRES UNDERSCORED THE ESSENTIAL ROLE PLAYED BY THE ENDURING CLOSE CO-OPERATION BETWEEN THE US & THE #UN. READOUT: HTTPS://T.CO/AUOTKI4CPP

— UN SPOKESPERSON (@UN_SPOKESPERSON) DECEMBER 1, 2020

Under the Trump Administration, Washington has formally notified the United Nations of its withdrawal from the World Health Organisation (W.H.O.), pulled out from the Paris Climate Agreement, the United Nations Human Rights Council as well as United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organisation (UNESCO), besides ending funding to the U.N. relief agency for Palestinian refugees.

BIDEN HAS PLEDGED HIS ADMINISTRATION WOULD REJOIN THE HISTORIC PARIS AGREEMENT ON CLIMATE CHANGE WHILE RETURNING FUNDING, A MOVE THAT HAS ALREADY BEEN WELCOMED AT THE BODY.

The European Union is another body that has applauded Biden, saying “things are going to get a lot easier” because he will be diplomatic putty compared to a combative Donald Trump, as Breitbart News reported. Trump also stood up to NATO and the refusal of most – but not all – of its members to pay their way rather than rely on U.S. taxpayer funds and forces to carry the load in Europe. The president made no secret of the fact the organization was not pulling its weight financially and left the U.S. to “pay and bleed” for Europe’s defense.

The exchange between Biden and Guterres came hours after Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg announced the company is ready to play its part in a potential Biden administration with its coronavirus vaccine response, as Breitbart News reported.

Mark Zuckerberg said in a livestreamed interview with Dr. Anthony Fauci that Facebook is trying to work with Joe Biden defining ways the social media giant can help a potential Biden administration enact its policies. The Facebook CEO mentioned a “push around authoritative information on vaccines,” but did not go on to elaborate on what that would entail.

The Financial Times recently reported Facebook plans a major push to encourage the site’s users to get a coronavirus vaccine — as well as incentivize users to share content related to the Paris climate agreement.

COVID-1984: LOS ANGELES IMPOSES 21-DAY LOCKDOWN ON RESIDENTS, POPE FRANCIS IN ROME CALLS FOR CREATION OF A ‘NEW POLITICAL AND ECONOMIC SYSTEM’

Barbara Ferrer, PhD, MPH, MEd, Director of Public Health, said, due to the recent surge in coronavirus cases, “We must take additional safety measures to reduce the risk of illness and death from this terrible virus and protect our healthcare system.” “Acting with collective urgency right now is essential if we want to put a stop to this surge. Please remain home as much as possible and do not gather with others not in your household for the next three weeks,” she concluded. The announcement comes two days after county officials banned outdoor dining, the KTLA report said.

by Geoffrey Grider November 28, 2020

Los Angeles County announced Friday a massive, new 21-day COVID-1984 coronavirus lockdown as Pope Francis calls for ‘new economic and political system’ from Rome.

 

They are pounding us from all sides now, Democrats governors and mayors across America in far-Left Liberal regions of PA, CO, CA, GA NY and other places issuing endless draconian restrictions on our freedoms and liberties, while across the pond in the Revived Roman Empire, the King of Vatican City calling for a new COVID-centric world with ‘new politics and economics’. No, you’re not paranoid, they are after you. Actually, they’ve caught you. On Friday, Los Angeles was placed on yet another massive COVID-1984 lockdown.

“For nation shall rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom: and there shall be famines, and pestilences, and earthquakes, in divers places. All these are the beginning of sorrows. Then shall they deliver you up to be afflicted, and shall kill you: and ye shall be hated of all nations for my name’s sake. And then shall many be offended, and shall betray one another, and shall hate one another.” Matthew 24:7-10 (KJB)

When we rightly divide those verses from Matthew 24 you see above, we understand that will be taking place during the time known as the great Tribulation, but guess what? We are so close to the Pretribulation Rapture of the Church that we are watching the unsaved world preparing to receive Antichrist, and God is right now giving us a free ‘sneak preview of coming attractions’.

Meanwhile, there is this from the False Prophet of the Whore of Babylon:

“God asks us to dare to create something new. We cannot return to the false securities of the political and economic systems we had before the crisis. We need economies that give to all access to the fruits of creation, to the basic needs of life: to land, lodging and labor,” the Roman pontiff said. “We need a politics that can integrate and dialogue with the poor, the excluded, and the vulnerable, that gives people a say in the decisions that affect their lives. We need to slow down, take stock, and design better ways of living together on this earth,” he said.

Pope Francis concluded: “Solidarity is more than acts of generosity, important as they are; it is the call to embrace the reality that we are bound by bonds of reciprocity. On this solid foundation we can build a better, different, human future.” source

All signs are pointing to the fact that 2020 is the year the global elites of the New World Order decided to crash the current system and bring in the new one. This is not a drill, this is not a test, this is the real thing. Please act accordingly.

Los Angeles County Officials Announce Three Week COVID-1984 Stay-at-Home Order Just In Time For Christmas

FROM BREITBART NEWS: “The temporary order will be in place for three weeks through Dec. 20 and will allow essential and emergency workers, and those securing or providing essential and permitted services, to leave their homes,” KTLA reported.

On Twitter Friday, the county said coronavirus cases remain at “alarming levels” and the number of those hospitalized continues to increase:

AS NEW COVID-19 CASES REMAIN AT ALARMING LEVELS AND THE NUMBER OF PEOPLE HOSPITALIZED CONTINUE TO INCREASE, A TEMPORARY LA COUNTY HEALTH OFFICER ORDER WILL BE ISSUED TO REQUIRE ADDITIONAL SAFETY MEASURES ACROSS SECTORS, EFFECTIVE 11/30/20 THROUGH 12/20/20 HTTPS://T.CO/YTJAH9DS9R PIC.TWITTER.COM/D0TT05SC4Z

— LOS ANGELES COUNTY (@COUNTYOFLA) NOVEMBER 27, 2020

In a press release, public health officials advised residents to stay home as much as possible and wear a mask when they are outside and around other people:

ADDITIONALLY, IT IS VERY IMPORTANT THAT IF YOU ARE EVEN MILDLY SICK OR THINK YOU WERE EXPOSED TO SOMEONE WITH COVID-19 THAT YOU STAY HOME AND AWAY FROM OTHER PEOPLE, ESPECIALLY THOSE AT GREATER RISK OF BECOMING SERIOUSLY ILL FROM COVID-19 AND CONSIDER BEING TESTED FOR COVID-19.

TO DATE, PUBLIC HEALTH IDENTIFIED 387,793 POSITIVE CASES OF COVID-19 ACROSS ALL AREAS OF L.A. COUNTY AND A TOTAL OF 7,604 DEATHS. TESTING RESULTS ARE AVAILABLE FOR MORE THAN 3,681,714 INDIVIDUALS WITH 10% OF ALL PEOPLE TESTING POSITIVE.

“Today, Public Health has confirmed 24 new deaths and 4,544 new cases of COVID-19. Currently, the five-day average of new cases is 4,751,” the release continued.

Barbara Ferrer, PhD, MPH, MEd, Director of Public Health, said, due to the recent surge in coronavirus cases, “We must take additional safety measures to reduce the risk of illness and death from this terrible virus and protect our healthcare system.”

“Acting with collective urgency right now is essential if we want to put a stop to this surge. Please remain home as much as possible and do not gather with others not in your household for the next three weeks,” she concluded.

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.
