Turkey’s Aspiration To Create Its Own NATO

by Ted on November 27, 2020 in FeaturedGeneralHighlight

By Theodore Shoebat

Turkey’s foreign policy has less to do with dealing with the things foreign and more to do with making foreign things Turkish. The goal of Turkey, as we have been saying on this website for over a decade now, is the revival of the Ottoman Empire as part of the ideology of neo-Ottomanism. The Turks want to establish a Turkic union, or really the creation of a Turkish NATO, consisting of a confederacy of Turkic countries alongside Arab countries that were once under Ottoman control. Turkey’s military presence in Syria is not about fighting terrorism — this is merely the pretext — but about expanding the power of Ankara and ultimately establishing empire. If this were not the case, then Turkey would not be building banks, flying its flag in government buildings, utilizing Turkish curriculum in schools, or having Syrian rebels pose in front of a flag of the Ottoman Empire, in Syria. This is exactly what has been occurring in Syria with this conspicuous Turkish imperialism. As we read in a report from the Greek City Times:

Although Erdoğan claims to support the unity of the Syrian state, this has not deterred him from illegally opening Turkish banks in northern Syria, putting the Turkish lira into circulation, flying the Turkish flag on Syrian government buildings, using the Turkish education curriculum in Syrian schools, or from having Free Syrian Army commanders pose with maps of the Ottoman Empire.

You can see in this photo a Free Syrian Army rebel in front of a map of the Ottoman Empire, spanning all the way into the Balkans:

Turkey wants to form its own NATO — or really its own hegemony — and signs of this are already seen in the Turkic Council, or an organization of Turkic countries, consisting of Azerbaijan, Kazakhstan, Kyrgyzstan, Turkey and Uzbekistan. What is fascinating is that Hungary is listed as an observer state of the Turkic Council since Victor Orban is actually a pan-Turanian who believes that Hungarians and Turks have ethnic ties. Victor Orbin believes that “Hungary can offer the Turkic Council a connection to Europe.” Orban has even described Hungary as “Christian Turkish lands.” Orbin has also affirmed that Turkey is at the foundation for Hungary’s security: “Turkey’s stability is an assurance of Hungary’s security. Hungary’s foreign policy is to be framed in a triangle of Istanbul, Moscow and Berlin.” Orbin was the most vocal political official within EU who was against the EU’s taking in of migrants, but he is also a major supporter of Turkey, not just policy wise, but on an ideological level as well.

Orban and his ilk subscribe to the racial ideology of Turanism, or the belief in the superiority of the Turkic races. In 2012, Orban described Hungary as “half-Asian” and stated that Hungarians are the type of people who will unite together only by force:

“Cooperation is a question of force, not of intention. Perhaps there are countries where things don’t work that way, for example in the Scandinavian countries, but such a half-Asiatic rag-tag people as we are can unite only if there is force.”

In June of 2017, Viktor Orban delivered a speech at the Hungarian-Turkish Business Forum in Ankara, to talk about the importance of relations between Hungarian and Turkish industrialists. In his speech, Orban talked about both the racial relations and the need for deeper economic ties between Turkey and Hungary:

 Turkey is in a good location, and although there are now wars on its borders, strategically it is in one of the world’s most important locations. It has an enormous private sector. Why should it pay any attention to the Hungarians – aside from friendship and the intellectually intriguing question of common origins lost in the mists of ancient history? Why should any member of its business community divert their gaze to Hungary? I believe that there is one fact which even the most successful Turkish businesspeople would be wise to consider: Hungary is a country of ten million, and we are capable of generating exports worth 110 billion dollars; meanwhile Turkey is a country of eighty million, which is capable of generating exports worth 145 billion dollars.

Later in the speech Orban again brought up a common racial origin between Hungarians and Turks:

To sum up, we have the legend of common Turkish-Hungarian origins. We have mutual respect. We have an outstanding political and personal relationship between the leaders of the two countries. We have an enormous Turkey and a strengthening Central Europe. And we have a Hungarian investment and business environment without rival in Europe.

This interconnects with the pan-Asianism of Turkey; for the Young Turks declared Turkey to be the “Japan of the Near East” (I wrote an article on pan-Asianism which can be read here). Turkey will also be playing a major role in revamping Hungary’s military. According to a 2018 report from Hungarian Spectrum:

“We know little about the conversation that took place between Recep Tayyip Erdoğan and Viktor Orbán during the Turkish prime minister’s visit to Budapest a few days ago, but in the joint press conference Orbán talked about improving the Hungarian armed forces with Turkish participation. He explained that because of the poor economic conditions he faced in 2010, he was forced to curtail military spending, but now the Hungarian army is on track for a major upgrade. He intends for Turkey to play a major role in this endeavor. He added that Hungary is planning to embark on developing a robust armament industry with Turkish help.” 

Also according to Hungary Today:

…Orbán said that Hungary and Turkey would raise the level of military cooperation and build “powerful ties” in the military industry. He added that in recent decades “there have been no money or energy left to develop the military” but “we will make up for that now; Hungary’s goal is to build a modern and effective national army”.”

Peter E. Uhde talks about a military plan for Hungary that is set to be in full materialization by 2026:

“Zrínyi 2026” is the name of a ten-year defense and military development program. This includes a voluntary reserve system for territorial protection, ie homeland security.”

There has been talk amongst Turkish nationalists in the media on the formation of a Turanian army, or even a Turkish NATO, in which Turkish nations will unite under Ankara. For example, in an article published on October 27th, 2020, by the Turkish daily Türkiye,  professor Cemalettin Taşkıran, speaks of how “the Central Asian Republics” are closer now to Turkey than in any point in the history of the Ottoman Empire, stating: “In Turkish history, the periods in which the Central Asian Republics got as close [as they are today] to the Ottoman state, and later to the Republic of Turkey, and in fact, gave each other such close support, are so few as to be non-existent.” He then goes on to say that

“the regaining of nearly all of the land [Azerbaijan] had lost… pleased the entire Turkic world. It would not be wrong to say that the support that Turkey gave changed the balance in the region. Will this go on to [the formation of] a Turan Army? Inshallah it will.”

The introduction of this article speaks of how the Azeri and Turkish victory over the Armenians bolsters the position in favor of a pan-Turkish military force. Its subheading reads: “It Will Be A Global Power – It Is Early But Definitely One Day.” And before this it reads:

“The success in Karabagh has brought once again to the agenda one of the West’s greatest fears: the Turan Army. Azerbaijan, which has become stronger with the military training, joint drills, and support with armed drones that Turkey has provided, has broken Armenia’s back. This picture of success that has appeared has once again brought to life the hopes concerning a Turan Army, that would be the joint military power of the Turkic states. The Turan Army, which will be a unique option for disrupting the plots in the region, will become a leading actor on every issue.”

In an article published on October 28th of 2020 by Yeni Çağ,nationalist Ahmet Gürsoy described this Turan army as “a kind of Turkic NATO,” and said that:

“Can it be? Yes. If we want it and we decide [to do it], it will be. Should it be? Yes to that too, it should be. It should be established, and the Turkic union should be wrapped up in a military organization and a concrete legal identity. This way all Turks will come under one single army umbrella and one single military personage. The dream, without beginning or end, of Turkish nationalists, is the great homeland: the Turan homeland may not be realized geographically. For this reason, we may not be able to geographically unite all of the Turks under a single flag as they were in their imperial periods. However, socially, by forming a legal identity, we can unite the whole Turkic union under a single flag, just as multinational companies are represented by the same flag in every corner of the world. The most striking and possible way to do this is the Turan Army.”

According to some prominent politicians in the Turkish parliament, there is a plan being conspired by Erdogan and his ilk to bring back the Caliphate to the center of the religious and political paradigm of the Islamic world. Cem Toker, the former head of the libertarian Liberal Democratic Party in Turkey, warned in an interview:

“There will be another referendum in the next four years… There is one more referendum left to come. I believe that Recep Tayyip Erdoğan is assertive (on this point). My guess: the caliphate. We will ask the nation, ‘shall we bring back the caliphate or not?”

When asked by the interviewer on whether or not he was certain of what he was saying, Toker responded: “It’s a very, very great possibility, yes …March 3, 2024 is the hundredth anniversary of the abolition of the caliphate…”

The 2020s is going to be a very turbulent decade (to say the least).

Texas sues 4 states for ‘skewing’ 2020 election results

‘Violated statutes enacted by their duly elected legislatures’

By Bob Unruh
Published December 8, 2020 at 12:

The state of Texas on Tuesday filed a lawsuit directly with the U.S. Supreme Court against Pennsylvania, Georgia, Michigan and Wisconsin, alleging officials in the four states are guilty of “skewing” the results of the 2020 presidential race by refusing to follow their own laws.

“Trust in the integrity of our election processes is sacrosanct and binds our citizenry and the States in this Union together, said Texas Attorney General Ken Paxton. “Georgia, Michigan, Pennsylvania and Wisconsin destroyed that trust and compromised the security and integrity of the 2020 election.”

Paxton charged that the states “violated statutes enacted by their duly elected legislatures, thereby violating the Constitution.”

“By ignoring both state and federal law, these states have not only tainted the integrity of their own citizens’ vote, but of Texas and every other state that held lawful elections. Their failure to abide by the rule of law casts a dark shadow of doubt over the outcome of the entire election. We now ask that the Supreme Court step in to correct this egregious error,” he said.

Texas contends the four states “exploited the COVID-19 pandemic to justify ignoring federal and state election laws and unlawfully enacting last-minute changes, thus skewing the results of the 2020 General Election.”

“The battleground states flooded their people with unlawful ballot applications and ballots while ignoring statutory requirements as to how they were received, evaluated and counted.”

Texas argues that elections for federal office must comport with federal constitutional standards.

“For presidential elections, each state must appoint its electors to the electoral college in a manner that complies with the Constitution. The Electors Clause requirement that only state legislatures may set the rules governing the appointment of electors and elections and cannot be delegated to local officials. The majority of the rushed decisions, made by local officials, were not approved by the state legislatures, thereby circumventing the Constitution.”

Texas argues that as a dispute between states, the case qualifies for direct action by the Supreme Court.

The filing asserts the 2020 election “suffered from significant and unconstitutional irregularities in the defendant states.”

For example, officials changed election laws that can be changed only by the state legislature. And voters were not treated equally.

Other “flaws” arose from “the unconstitutional relaxation of ballot-integrity protections in those states’ election laws,” the complaint states.

“All these flaws – even the violations of state election law – violate one or more of the federal requirements for elections (i.e., equal protection, due process, and the Electors Clause) and thus arise under federal law. See Bush v Gore, 531 U.S. 98, 113 (2000) (“significant departure from the legislative scheme for appointing Presidential electors presents a federal constitutional question”) (Rehnquist, C.J., concurring). Plaintiff State respectfully submits that the foregoing types of electoral irregularities exceed the hanging-chad saga of the 2000 election in their degree of departure from both state and federal law. Moreover, these flaws cumulatively preclude knowing who legitimately won the 2020 election and threaten to cloud all future elections. Taken together, these flaws affect an outcome-determinative numbers of popular votes in a group of States that cast outcome-determinative numbers of electoral votes. This Court should grant leave to file the complaint and, ultimately, enjoin the use of unlawful election results without review and ratification by the Defendant States’ legislatures and remand to the Defendant States’ respective legislatures to appoint Presidential Electors in a manner consistent with the Electors Clause.

“Our Country stands at an important crossroads. Either the Constitution matters and must be followed, even when some officials consider it inconvenient or out of date, or it is simply a piece of parchment on display at the National Archives. We ask the Court to choose the former. Lawful elections are at the heart of our constitutional democracy. The public, and indeed the candidates themselves, have a compelling interest in ensuring that the selection of a President — any President — is legitimate. If that trust is lost, the American Experiment will founder. A dark cloud hangs over the 2020 Presidential election. Here is what we know. Using the COVID-19 pandemic as a justification, government officials in the defendant states of Georgia, Michigan, and Wisconsin, and the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania (collectively, “Defendant States”), usurped their legislatures’ authority and unconstitutionally revised their state’s election statutes. They accomplished these statutory revisions through executive fiat or friendly lawsuits, thereby weakening ballot integrity. Finally, these same government officials flooded the Defendant States with millions of ballots to be sent through the mails, or placed in drop boxes, with little or no chain of custody, and, at the same time, weakened the strongest security measures protecting the integrity of the vote – signature verification and witness requirements.”

Evidence, the filing contends, is growing daily.

“This court is the only forum that can delay the deadline for the appointment of presidential electors … To safeguard public legitimacy at this unprecedented moment and restore public trust in the president election, this court should extend the December 14, 2020 deadline for Defendant States’ certification of presidential electors to allow these investigations to be completed.”

There was a “pattern” to the states’ actions.

“State officials, sometimes through pending litigation (e.g. settling ‘friendly’ suits) and sometimes unilaterally by executive fiat, announced new rules for the conduct of the 2020 election that were inconsistent with existing state statutes defining what constitutes a lawful vote.”

Votes cast illegally should be disregarded, the complaint argues.

Already, “dozens” of witnesses have testified under oath of Republican poll challengers being kicked out of vote counting, “thousands of the same ballots run multiple times through tabulators; mysterious late night dumps of thousands of ballots … illegally backdating thousands of ballots” and more.

The official outcome defies logic and statistics, Texas asserts.

“The probability of former Vice President Biden winning the popular vote in the four defendant states – Georgia, Michigan, Pennsylvania, and Wisconsin – independently given President Trump’s early lead in those States as of 3 a.m. on November 4, 2020, is less than one in a quadrillion.

“Put simply, there is substantial reason to doubt the voting results in the defendant states.”

Like establishment media, the non-profit, independent Texas Tribune stated flatly there’s “no evidence of widespread voter fraud,” characterizing the case as futile.

“The last-minute bid, which legal experts have already characterized as a longshot, comes alongside dozens of similar attempts by President Donald Trump and his political allies. The majority of those lawsuits have already failed,” the Tribune said.

Michigan Attorney General Dana Nessel called Paxton’s suit “a publicity stunt, not a serious legal pleading.”

Noting the Texas appeal on his Facebook page, evangelical leader Franklin Graham urged the nation to pray.

“Join me in praying that if there is fraud, it would be proven — for the good of our nation and all future elections,” he said. “Forces of evil are at work, and we know how much is at stake. Pray for God’s will to be done in the outcome of this important election. Please pray — the only hope for our country is God.”

HIGHLY-RESPECTED ISRAELI GENERAL HIAM ESHED SAYS UNITED STATES AND ISRAEL IN TOUCH WITH ALIENS AND IS CONNECTED TO CREATION OF TRUMP’S US SPACE FORCE

If true, this would coincide with US President Donald Trump’s creation of the Space Force as the fifth branch of the US armed forces, though it is unclear how long this sort of relationship, if any, has been going on between the US and its reported extraterrestrial allies. Speaking in an interview to Yediot Aharonot, Eshed – who served as the head of Israel’s space security program for nearly 30 years and is a three-time recipient of the Israel Security Award – explained that Israel and the US have both been dealing with aliens for years. And this by no means refers to immigrants, with Eshed clarifying the existence of a “Galactic Federation.”

by Geoffrey Grider December 7, 2020

Former Israeli space security chief Hiam Eshed says aliens exist, has been in contact with Israel and the US for years, humanity not ready for what’s coming

 

Before you make up your mind as to whether or not you believe this incredible story coming from a highly-respected and decorated retired general in the Israel military, allow me to remind you of a couple of things. First, on April 28th of this year, the United States Pentagon admitted that videos of UFOs taken by Air Force pilots are indeed legit, and that the encounters they had with aliens actually took place. In July, the Pentagon went a step further and said that they have recovered ‘objects and vehicles not made on this earth’ and that there is so much activity they had to create the Unidentified Aerial Phenomenon Task Force inside the Office of Naval Intelligence on August 4th, 2020. These are the facts, let’s proceed.

“But as the days of Noe were, so shall also the coming of the Son of man be. For as in the days that were before the flood they were eating and drinking, marrying and giving in marriage, until the day that Noe entered into the ark, And knew not until the flood came, and took them all away; so shall also the coming of the Son of man be.” Matthew 24:37-39 (KJB)

It was in May of 2020 that President Trump announce the creation of the US Space Force, complete with the all-seeing eye built into the logo, and everyone laughed at the perceived silliness of Trump in creating an intergalactic Space Force. Suddenly, as I am recalling the Pentagon admitting to UFOs, Trump’s Space Force is not quite so humorous anymore, is it? Ret. Israeli Gen. Haim Eshed is laughing, and he isn’t crazy, either. He is telling you the truth, and your King James Bible backs him up. You should believe what he’s saying, I do.

“And Enoch also, the seventh from Adam, prophesied of these, saying, Behold, the Lord cometh with ten thousands of his saints, To execute judgment upon all, and to convince all that are ungodly among them of all their ungodly deeds which they have ungodly committed, and of all their hard speeches which ungodly sinners have spoken against him.” Jude 1:14,15 (KJB)

Jesus says clearly that when the time of Jacob’s trouble begins, it will be just like it was in the ‘days of Noah’, and event that was kicked-off with the one-man pretribulation rapture of Enoch. If we are where we think we are in this crazy year of 2020, then what Haim Eshed is saying makes perfect, rightly divided and dispensationally correct sense. We are living in the overlap between the end of the Church Age and the start of the time of Jacob’s trouble, with the Pretribulation Rapture of the Church on the launch pad.

  • Please visit our friend Steve Quayle over on his Genesis 6 Giants site, it will be an eye-opener for you.

Former Israeli space security chief Haim Eshed says aliens exist, humanity not ready

FROM THE JERUSALEM POST: Has the State of Israel made contact with aliens? According to retired Israeli general and current professor Haim Eshed, the answer is yes, but this has been kept a secret because “humanity isn’t ready.”

Speaking in an interview to Yediot Aharonot, Eshed – who served as the head of Israel’s space security program for nearly 30 years and is a three-time recipient of the Israel Security Award – explained that Israel and the US have both been dealing with aliens for years.

AND THIS BY NO MEANS REFERS TO IMMIGRANTS, WITH ESHED CLARIFYING THE EXISTENCE OF A “GALACTIC FEDERATION.”

The 87-year-old former space security chief gave further descriptions about exactly what sort of agreements have been made between the aliens and the US, which ostensibly have been made because they wish to research and understand “the fabric of the universe.” This cooperation includes a secret underground base on Mars, where there are American and alien representatives.

IF TRUE, THIS WOULD COINCIDE WITH US PRESIDENT DONALD TRUMP’S CREATION OF THE SPACE FORCE AS THE FIFTH BRANCH OF THE US ARMED FORCES, THOUGH IT IS UNCLEAR HOW LONG THIS SORT OF RELATIONSHIP, IF ANY, HAS BEEN GOING ON BETWEEN THE US AND ITS REPORTED EXTRATERRESTRIAL ALLIES.

But Eshed insists that Trump is aware of them, and that he was “on the verge” of disclosing their existence. However, the Galactic Federation reportedly stopped him from doing so, saying they wished to prevent mass hysteria since they felt humanity needed to “evolve and reach a stage where we will… understand what space and spaceships are,” Yediot Aharonot reported. As for why he’s chosen to reveal this information now, Eshed explained that the timing was simply due to how much the academic landscape has changed, and how respected he is in academia.

“IF I HAD COME UP WITH WHAT I’M SAYING TODAY FIVE YEARS AGO, I WOULD HAVE BEEN HOSPITALIZED,” HE EXPLAINED TO YEDIOT.

He added that “today, they’re already talking differently. I have nothing to lose. I’ve received my degrees and awards; I am respected in universities abroad, where the trend is also changing. Eshed provided more information in his newest book, The Universe Beyond the Horizon – conversations with Professor Haim Eshed, along with other details such as how aliens have prevented nuclear apocalypses and “when we can jump in and visit the Men in Black.” The book is available now for NIS 98.

While it is unclear if any evidence exists that could support Eshed’s claims, they did come just ahead of a recent announcement by SpaceIL, the group behind Israel’s failed attempt to land a spacecraft on the moon in 2019.

Uploaded to social media with the text “Ready to get excited again?,” the announcement contained a 15-second video of the moon with text saying “Back to the Moon,” followed by the date of December 9, 2020. It is likely that this is a follow up to the Beresheet spacecraft, which crashed after engineers lost contact with it just minutes before it was due to land. However, the follow up project, titled Beresheet 2, is expected to take three years to be ready.

THE GREAT RESET: POPE FRANCIS BECOMES LATEST GLOBAL ELITE TO ADOPT THE NEW WORLD ORDER MANTRA OF ‘BUILD BACK BETTER’ CREATED BY THE UNITED NATIONS

On his official website, Joe Biden explains the message behind ‘build back better’ by insisting that “this is no time to just build back to the way things were before, with the old economy’s structural weaknesses and inequalities still in place. This is the moment to imagine and build a new American economy for our families and the next generation.” Biden’s version of the World Economic Forum’s (WEF) “Great Reset” looks remarkably similar to that of Pope Francis. “We will be able to regenerate society and not return to so-called ‘normality,’ which is an ailing normality, indeed which was ailing before the pandemic: the pandemic highlighted it!,” he said, adding that the old normality “was sick with injustice, inequality and environmental degradation.”

by Geoffrey Grider December 5, 2020

Pope Francis has chosen the slogan ‘build back better’ from the United Nations and Joe Biden to describe his vision for the great reset after the COVID-1984 coronavirus pandemic, saying he finds the expression “quite striking.”

 

Back in October, we brought you the story of how we uncovered the true origin of the phrase ‘Build Back Better’ used by the Joe Biden campaign, and showed you how it didn’t originate with Biden but from the World Economic Forum and the United Nations. Furthermore, we showed you that ‘Build Back Better’ is the mantra of the burgeoning New World Order and the Great Reset, who are bend on global domination and recreating the whole in their own image.

“Behold ye among the heathen, and regard, and wonder marvellously: for I will work a work in your days, which ye will not believe, though it be told you.” Habakkuk 1:5 (KJB)

 Joe Biden chose ‘Build Back Better’ as his campaign slogan because he is the chosen vessel of the New World Order, and a Biden-Harris administration would tear down the United States from sea to shining sea. Build Back Better? Only if you’re a globalist. Now proving us to be right, Pope Francis who is king over the Whore of Babylon, has now adopted ‘Build Back Better’ and is right now feeding that poison to his 1.5 billion followers. Christians will be flying as Antichrist is rising.

Pope Francis Adopts Joe Biden’s Slogan ‘Build Back Better’

FROM BREITBART NEWS: “The theme of this year’s celebration is ‘Building Back Better: Toward a Disability-inclusive, Accessible and Sustainable post-COVID-19 World,” the pope wrote in his message this week for the International Day of Persons with Disabilities, while adding, “I find the expression ‘building back better’ quite striking.”

As Gian Guido Vecchi noted in an article Friday in the Italian daily Corriere della Sera, the Vatican chose to translate the Italian title “Riconstruire Meglio” using the exact words that Biden employs.

On his official website, Joe Biden explains the message behind ‘build back better’ by insisting that “this is no time to just build back to the way things were before, with the old economy’s structural weaknesses and inequalities still in place. This is the moment to imagine and build a new American economy for our families and the next generation.”

Biden’s version of the World Economic Forum’s (WEF) “Great Reset” looks remarkably similar to that of Pope Francis.

“WE WILL BE ABLE TO REGENERATE SOCIETY AND NOT RETURN TO SO-CALLED ‘NORMALITY,’ WHICH IS AN AILING NORMALITY, INDEED WHICH WAS AILING BEFORE THE PANDEMIC: THE PANDEMIC HIGHLIGHTED IT!,” HE SAID, ADDING THAT THE OLD NORMALITY “WAS SICK WITH INJUSTICE, INEQUALITY AND ENVIRONMENTAL DEGRADATION.”

In his recent op-ed for the New York Times, the pope wrote that this “is a moment to dream big, to rethink our priorities — what we value, what we want, what we seek — and to commit to act in our daily life on what we have dreamed of.”

“GOD ASKS US TO DARE TO CREATE SOMETHING NEW,” HE DECLARED. “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. WE NEED TO SLOW DOWN, TAKE STOCK AND DESIGN BETTER WAYS OF LIVING TOGETHER ON THIS EARTH,” HE PROPOSED.

The WEF at Davos welcomed what it sees as the pontiff’s endorsement of its “Great Reset” program, highlighting the similarities between their visions.

In an article titled “Here’s the pope’s prescription for resetting the global economy in response to COVID-19,” the WEF declared that Francis had “put his stamp on efforts to shape what’s been termed a Great Reset of the global economy in response to the devastation of COVID-19.”

“POPE FRANCIS HAS ISSUED A SCATHING INDICTMENT OF NEOLIBERALISM,” THE WEF NOTES, “A PHILOSOPHY ESPOUSING AUSTERITY, PRIVATIZATION, DEREGULATION, UNBRIDLED MARKETS, AND RELATIVELY WEAK LABOUR LAWS.”

Moreover, the pope “blames the ‘dogma’ of neoliberal economics for making us more vulnerable to COVID-19,” it states, while calling for “greater multilateral cooperation and a focus on human dignity.” “Neoliberalism’s free-market orthodoxy has been blamed for making health care systems and livelihoods especially vulnerable to the pandemic, and has drawn a clearer line under the need for active government intervention,” the article asserts.

REPORT: KILLED IRANIAN NUCLEAR SCIENTIST WAS MAKING 5 WARHEADS

BY ADAM ELIYAHU BERKOWITZ | DEC 7, 2020 | TERROR WATCH

I will turn you around and put hooks in your jaws, and lead you out with all your army, horses, and horsemen, all of them clothed in splendor, a vast assembly, all of them with bucklers and shields, wielding swords.Among them shall be Persia, Nubia, and Put, everyone with shield and helmet; Ezekiel 38:4 (The Israel BibleTM)

Inert Titan at the ready in the launch silo.

A report in the Hebrew-language news site Yediot Ahronot  written by investigative reporter Ronen Bergman and published on Friday stated that on a 2008 visit by George W. Bush to Jerusalem, former Israeli Prime Minister Ehud Olmert played a tape of Mohsen Fakhrizadeh, the senior Iranian nuclear scientist assassinated by a hit squad outside of Tehran ten days ago, speaking about his efforts to produce “five warheads.”

The recording was made by a source close to Fakhrizadeh who had been recruited by Israeli intelligence. Played as part of an effort to convince the US of the dire threat of an Iranian nuclear program, Olmert requested that the room be emptied of any non-essential people, including Bush’s national security adviser Stephen Hadley, in order to ensure the identity of the source remained a secret.

According to the report in Yediot, Israel had been compiling a dossier on the Iranian scientist for over three decades, indicating his deep involvement in a nuclear weapons program. The recording was considered by Israeli intelligence experts to be the final proof that the Iranian nuclear program was not focused on peace-time goals, as the Iranian government still insists in the public forum. 

At the time, Ehud Barak, Olmert’s Minister of Defense, requested the US to supply Israel with weapons that it did not have in its arsenals, such as vertical take-off aircraft and bunker-busting bombs. It was believed that Israel intended to use the weapons to carry out an attack against the Iranian nuclear program. 

According to the report, Bush responded to the request by pointing at Barak and saying, “This guy frightens me.”

Bush then reacted to the new information concerning the Iranian nuclear weapons program by saying:

BUSH: “US WILL NOT ACT”

“I want you to know the official position of the United States government. The US strongly opposes Israel taking action against the Iranian nuclear program,” Bush said, according to Ehud Barak in the Yediot report. “And in order not to be vague, I will tell you that the United States does not intend to act either as long as I serve as president.” 

After this response, Olmert decided to play the tape for the US president the next day in an attempt to convince him of the dire necessity. Before the meeting, Olmert insisted that everyone leave the room except for the president. Headley stated that protocol demanded that as national security adviser, he stay. But Olmert insisted that he leave and Bush assented. 

Olmert played the tape which was, of course in Persian, but the Israeli prime minister provided an English transcript.

“I’m going to play you something, but I ask that you not talk about it with anyone, not even with the director of the CIA,” the report quoted Olmert as telling Bush, identifying Fakhrizadeh as the man speaking on the tape. 

IRAN’S LONG HISTORY OF NUCLEAR WEAPONS DEVELOPMENT

Olmert described him as the head of the Iranian AMAD program. AMAD is the Iranian program aimed at developing a nuclear weapon that was begun in 1989. The Iranian government claims to have ended the program in 2003. The Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA), better known as the Iran Nuclear Deal, was predicated on the truth of this Iranian claim. President Trump pulled the US out of the JCPOA but the Democratic candidate, Joe Biden, who helped set up the JCPOA, and many of his cabinet nominees have vowed to return the agreement. 

The Yediot  report cites the recording, quoting Fakhrizadeh, but does not use the word ‘nuclear’. The nuclear scientist discusses his weapons program, complaining that the government is not providing him with sufficient funding. 

“They want five warheads,” Fakhrizadehsaid. “But on the other hand, they won’t let me work.”

Though Bush did not relent and sell Israel the requested weaponry, he did agree to full-intelligence cooperation on the Iranian nuclear weapons program and joint operations against it. 

Fakhrizadeh was named in 2018 when Prime Minister Netanyahu revealed a trove of secrete documentation taken from a warehouse in Tehran by the Mossad. The documentation was from Iran’s nuclear program.

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.

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.

China’s new intercontinental bomber could put U.S. bases, state of Hawaii in strike range

By Cameron Arcand, The Western Journal
Published November 30, 2020 at 6:18pm

China is developing a stealth bomber that would be capable of striking parts of the United States, a troubling prospect given the rising tensions between the two nations.

The H-20 bomber, which has been on the radar of the United States for months now, is expected to have a 5,280-mile striking range, putting Hawaii and the U.S. territory of Guam within its reach.

The U.S. Defense Department’s 2020 China Military Power Report gives insight into China’s aviation ambitions.

“A number of reports suggest the new bomber, likely named the H-20, could debut sometime in the next decade with the following features: a stealthy design, employing many fifth-generation technologies; a likely range of at least 8,500 km; a payload of at least 10 metric tons; and a capability to employ both conventional and nuclear weaponry,” the DoD said in August.

A new report from the Royal United Services Institute, a United Kingdom-based think tank, makes it clear that the bomber would have significant power, according to the South China Morning Post.

“Armed with nuclear and conventional stand-off missiles, the H-20 would represent a major break from previous People’s Liberation Army Air Force doctrine and equipment development practice,” said the RUSI report, released in late October.

This is a major change for the Chinese People’s Liberation Army, which currently is only truly able to defend against and attack nations in Asia and islands in the Pacific Ocean, such as the Philippines and Japan.

“The H-20, by contrast, would give China a truly intercontinental power-projection capability,” the report said.

China’s H-20 stealth bomber will give PLA ‘truly intercontinental’ strike capacity, says report https://t.co/07icYQH4nx

— SCMP News (@SCMPNews) November 26, 2020

This news comes as the Pentagon has raised concerns about China’s growing military power and how it is quickly becoming the nation’s largest adversary.

The report from the DOD makes it clear the communist juggernaut wants to best the United States in military prowess by 2049.

“Two decades later, the PLA’s objective is to become a ‘world-class’ military by the end of 2049 — a goal first announced by General Secretary Xi Jinping in 2017,” it said. “Although the CCP has not defined what a ‘world-class’ military means, within the context of the PRC’s national strategy it is likely that Beijing will seek to develop a military by mid-century that is equal to — or in some cases superior to — the U.S. military, or that of any other great power that the PRC views as a threat.”

Tensions between the United States and China have soured since March, mostly because of the global impact of the COVID-19 pandemic that originated there, the intense scrutiny over Uyghur Muslims being placed in forced labor camps, and the government’s crackdown on freedom protests in Hong Kong.

As a result, the U.S. government sanctioned the communist nation by enacting the Uyghur Human Rights Policy Act and the Hong Kong Autonomy Act. The Trump administration also announced sanctions on Chinese companies that use slave labor.

China is poised to become the nation’s greatest enemy since the Soviet Union, so military developments such as a new stealth bomber should not be taken lightly.

While President Donald Trump has taken a tough approach to China after trying to negotiate trade deals with the global rival, it is unclear how Democrat Joe Biden’s administration would respond to the growing threat.

China plays an integral role in the global economy, so the United States needs the right leaders to navigate this rocky chapter in foreign policy.

Reasons why the 2020 presidential election is deeply puzzling

If only cranks find the tabulations strange, put me down as a crank

Patrick Basham

November 27, 2020

3:44 PM

To say out-loud that you find the results of the 2020 presidential election odd is to invite derision. You must be a crank or a conspiracy theorist. Mark me down as a crank, then. I am a pollster and I find this election to be deeply puzzling. I also think that the Trump campaign is still well within its rights to contest the tabulations. Something very strange happened in America’s democracy in the early hours of Wednesday November 4 and the days that followed. It’s reasonable for a lot of Americans to want to find out exactly what.

First, consider some facts. President Trump received more votes than any previous incumbent seeking reelection. He got 11 million more votes than in 2016, the third largest rise in support ever for an incumbent. By way of comparison, President Obama was comfortably reelected in 2012 with 3.5 million fewer votes than he received in 2008.

Trump’s vote increased so much because, according to exit polls, he performed far better with many key demographic groups. Ninety-five percent of Republicans voted for him. He did extraordinarily well with rural male working-class whites.

He earned the highest share of all minority votes for a Republican since 1960. Trump grew his support among black voters by 50 percent over 2016. Nationally, Joe Biden’s black support fell well below 90 percent, the level below which Democratic presidential candidates usually lose.

Trump increased his share of the national Hispanic vote to 35 percent. With 60 percent or less of the national Hispanic vote, it is arithmetically impossible for a Democratic presidential candidate to win Florida, Arizona, Nevada, and New Mexico. Bellwether states swung further in Trump’s direction than in 2016. Florida, Ohio and Iowa each defied America’s media polls with huge wins for Trump. Since 1852, only Richard Nixon has lost the Electoral College after winning this trio, and that 1960 defeat to John F. Kennedy is still the subject of great suspicion.

Midwestern states Michigan, Pennsylvania, and Wisconsin always swing in the same direction as Ohio and Iowa, their regional peers. Ohio likewise swings with Florida. Current tallies show that, outside of a few cities, the Rust Belt swung in Trump’s direction. Yet, Biden leads in Michigan, Pennsylvania, and Wisconsin because of an apparent avalanche of black votes in Detroit, Philadelphia, and Milwaukee. Biden’s ‘winning’ margin was derived almost entirely from such voters in these cities, as coincidentally his black vote spiked only in exactly the locations necessary to secure victory. He did not receive comparable levels of support among comparable demographic groups in comparable states, which is highly unusual for the presidential victor.

We are told that Biden won more votes nationally than any presidential candidate in history. But he won a record low of 17 percent of counties; he only won 524 counties, as opposed to the 873 counties Obama won in 2008. Yet, Biden somehow outdid Obama in total votes.

Victorious presidential candidates, especially challengers, usually have down-ballot coattails; Biden did not. The Republicans held the Senate and enjoyed a ‘red wave’ in the House, where they gained a large number of seats while winning all 27 toss-up contests. Trump’s party did not lose a single state legislature and actually made gains at the state level.

Another anomaly is found in the comparison between the polls and non-polling metrics. The latter include: party registrations trends; the candidates’ respective primary votes; candidate enthusiasm; social media followings; broadcast and digital media ratings; online searches; the number of (especially small) donors; and the number of individuals betting on each candidate.

Despite poor recent performances, media and academic polls have an impressive 80 percent record predicting the winner during the modern era. But, when the polls err, non-polling metrics do not; the latter have a 100 percent record. Every non-polling metric forecast Trump’s reelection. For Trump to lose this election, the mainstream polls needed to be correct, which they were not. Furthermore, for Trump to lose, not only did one or more of these metrics have to be wrong for the first time ever, but every single one had to be wrong, and at the very same time; not an impossible outcome, but extremely unlikely nonetheless.

Atypical voting patterns married with misses by polling and non-polling metrics should give observers pause for thought. Adding to the mystery is a cascade of information about the bizarre manner in which so many ballots were accumulated and counted.

The following peculiarities also lack compelling explanations:

1. Late on election night, with Trump comfortably ahead, many swing states stopped counting ballots. In most cases, observers were removed from the counting facilities. Counting generally continued without the observers

2. Statistically abnormal vote counts were the new normal when counting resumed. They were unusually large in size (hundreds of thousands) and had an unusually high (90 percent and above) Biden-to-Trump ratio

3. Late arriving ballots were counted. In Pennsylvania, 23,000 absentee ballots have impossible postal return dates and another 86,000 have such extraordinary return dates they raise serious questions

4. The failure to match signatures on mail-in ballots. The destruction of mail-in ballot envelopes, which must contain signatures

5. Historically low absentee ballot rejection rates despite the massive expansion of mail voting. Such is Biden’s narrow margin that, as political analyst Robert Barnes observes, ‘If the states simply imposed the same absentee ballot rejection rate as recent cycles, then Trump wins the election’

6. Missing votes. In Delaware County, Pennsylvania, 50,000 votes held on 47 USB cards are missing

7. Non-resident voters. Matt Braynard’s Voter Integrity Project estimates that 20,312 people who no longer met residency requirements cast ballots in Georgia. Biden’s margin is 12,670 votes

8. Serious ‘chain of custody’ breakdowns. Invalid residential addresses. Record numbers of dead people voting. Ballots in pristine condition without creases, that is, they had not been mailed in envelopes as required by law

9. Statistical anomalies. In Georgia, Biden overtook Trump with 89 percent of the votes counted. For the next 53 batches of votes counted, Biden led Trump by the same exact 50.05 to 49.95 percent margin in every single batch. It is particularly perplexing that all statistical anomalies and tabulation abnormalities were in Biden’s favor. Whether the cause was simple human error or nefarious activity, or a combination, clearly something peculiar happened.

If you think that only weirdos have legitimate concerns about these findings and claims, maybe the weirdness lies in you.

Days before Christmas, Jupiter and Saturn will look like one bright star — some believe the alignment is the same described in the Bible

It will be the first time the planets are this close since the Middle Ages

CARLOS GARCIA

A rare event in the heavens just ahead of Christmas will feature an alignment of planets that a famous astronomer believed was the phenomenon that is mentioned in the Bible when Jesus Christ was born.

The alignment of Jupiter and Saturn will appear in the skies on December 21, the winter solstice. The last time the rare alignment of the planets was this close was in 1623, nearly 400 years ago. That was only 14 years after Galileo discovered the moons of Jupiter with the invention of the telescope.

Another famous astronomer, Johannes Kepler, posited in 1614 that the alignment of the two planets might have been what was reported in the Nativity Story of Christ in the Bible. The planets aligned in 7 B.C., around the time that Christ was born.

The account in the Gospel of Matthew says that the wisemen came to Jerusalem to seek the birth of the “King of the Jews” after seeing a bright star in the sky.

…behold, the star which they had seen in the East went before them, till it came and stood over where the young Child was. When they saw the star, they rejoiced with exceedingly great joy.

And when they had come into the house, they saw the young Child with Mary His mother, and fell down and worshiped Him.

There is much debate among theologians and Christians as to whether the bright star in the sky was a natural phenomenon or a supernatural event.

Whether the star was the conjunction of Jupiter and Saturn or not, the rare sight will be visible to those in the Northern Hemisphere shortly after sunset in the southwestern sky. The conjunction will dip under the horizon after a few hours.

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.
