Deloitte estimated that the U.S. contraction in in 2020 would be the second mildest (behind only Japan) among G7 nations, with all the other countries — Canada, France, Germany, Italy, the U.K. — estimated to take a harder hit.”
“It’s the best-ever recovery,” economist Art Laffer told Just the News. “But you know, bottom line, the reason that’s the best is because the first and second quarter were the two worst. They were caused by something not economic, they were caused by the pandemic. And so it’s not a normal recovery in the sense of the Great Depression.”
U.S. Ambassador to France and Monaco Jamie McCourt told Breitbart News exclusively on Monday that the Atlantic story about President Donald Trump allegedly bashing troops is untrue.
Ambassador McCourt was there the day President Trump’s team called off the trip to the cemetery at Belleau Wood because of inclement weather. She is the latest U.S. official who was actually present at the event to publicly deny the Atlantic’s account of events, which is based entirely on anonymous sources.
Needless to say, I never spoke to the Atlantic, and I can’t imagine who would,” McCourt told Breitbart News. “In my presence, POTUS has NEVER denigrated any member of the U.S. military or anyone in service to our country. And he certainly did not that day, either. Let me add, he was devastated to not be able to go to the cemetery at Belleau Wood. In fact, the next day, he attended and spoke at the ceremony in Suresnes in the pouring rain.”
McCourt’s denial regarding the Atlantic comes after former White House deputy chief of staff Zach Fuentes, a top confidante of former chief of staff John Kelly, denied the story earlier on Monday in an exclusive statement to Breitbart News.
In addition to Fuentes, former National Security adviser John Bolton has denied the account—as has every other person who could have witnessed the president saying this: officials who were there, from former White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders to senior adviser Stephen Miller to advisers such as Jordan Karem and Derek Lyons. Secretary of State Mike Pompeo, who was traveling with the president there, has also denied the report. In addition, first lady Melania Trump has denied the report and called the Atlantic article fake news.
While Kelly himself has not said anything publicly at this stage, Fuentes’s denial essentially serves as a denial from Kelly. That’s because Fuentes, in his denial, made clear that Kelly would not have stood idly by if Trump had, in fact, made the remarks that were alleged in the Atlantic story.
“Honestly, do you think General Kelly would have stood by and let ANYONE call fallen Marines losers?” Fuentes asked Breitbart News.
Now, with McCourt’s denial, along with those of everyone else who was in the president’s presence in France during this supposed episode, White House officials familiar with the matter told Breitbart News that there is nobody left who could have witnessed the president say something like this privately about fallen troops:
JULY 30, 2020 | KAREN HARDIN, IFA CONTRIBUTING WRITER
A coup d’état is a “game of uncertainty where people tend to choose the side they believe most other actors support.” According to author Naunihal Singh, in his book, Seizing Power: The Strategic Logic of Military Coups, it becomes a game of “numbers” to create the illusion that all power and support is on the side of the attempted takeover. As they work to create that illusion, they are simultaneously working to remove all opposition to their plan. This is where we are today.
1. Manipulate Information (Take over the media)
In a coup attempt, this is called the “Coordination Theory,” in which it “is mandatory for the rebels to take over the main TV and radio stations, in order to create a fait [accompli] (The feeling that something has already been accomplished and cannot be changed.)”
We see this strategy in play by liberals who insist that Biden is leading in the polls in numerous battleground states, despite the fact that he hasn’t been out campaigning, he can’t put together a cohesive sentence, and he could barely get a few hundred people to show up to his rallies when he did campaign. Yet we are told daily that polls show Biden winning—via the coup accomplices—the media.
But according to Singh, it’s not enough to take over the media. It is the content of the information delivered which is of paramount importance: “The conspirators do not need to waste time rumbling about their righteousness. Instead, they have to hammer home the idea that they have already won, and that most important actors have already pledged their support for the coup (p.29).”
Joseph Goebbels, the Propaganda Minister under Hitler in Germany from 1933-1945 (yes that was his job title) stated, “It would not have been possible for us to take power or to use it in the ways we have without the radio.”
Step 2. Defund the police
Police are always targeted for removal in a coup attempt to remove opposition. This was done in Hitler’s day by his military leader, Hermann Goering, who helped pave the way for Hitler’s success. In 1933, Goering quickly rose through the ranks and set up concentration camps for political opponents to crush any resistance. (Just as we see happening in China today.)
Named Prussian Minister of the Interior and Commander-in-Chief of the Prussian police, he was then able to remove hundreds of officers and thousands of ordinary policemen, replacing them with Sturmabteilung (literally Storm Detachment, the Nazi Party’s original paramilitary wing) and SS, who took over the policing of Berlin.
So why have multiple “news sources,” including Reuters and Politifact, gone on record claiming this is false although it is completely true? They don’t want us to notice the comparison.
Instead, we are told defunding the police is needed for “reform,” tying the action to the politically correct Black Lives Matter and social justice movement. But I believe it has absolutely nothing to do with reforming the police. It has to do with taking them out.
Step 3. De-arm the citizens
Our freedom and right to bear arms have been under attack for years. If citizens have no guns, then resistance to a takeover is gone. While the Democrats work to convince Americans that our society would be “safer” if citizens were forced to hand over their guns, history proves otherwise.
Charles Van Wyk, author of “Shooting Back,” has spoken out to warn others of what he witnessed personally in his country of South Africa as citizens were de-armed and strict gun control measures implemented. Now, 26 years later, South Africa’s crime statistics reveal over 20,000 people murdered last year alone–the highest number the country has ever recorded.
“Gun control precedes genocide,” Wyk stated, and history proves his statement true. According to case studies of major twentieth-century genocide, once gun control became law, minority groups were targeted and murdered by the governments that implemented the laws.
Once “gun-free zones” are in place, they are then able to dominate and control citizens, who have been stripped of their guns and ability to protect themselves:
Step 4. The Removal of Statues and History
Hitler understood the importance of removing statues and with them the history connected to them. In the book Hitler at Home (Yale University Press, 2015), author Despina Stratigakost explains how Hitler ordered the eradication of war memorials in newly occupied Belgian and French towns, which “suggests that the Nazis understood the influence of even modest monuments once they become embedded in a community’s everyday life.”
It is unknown how many WWI memorials were removed or destroyed in Belgium and France through Hitler’s orders, in his effort to recast Germany as the victor of the war.
Fast forward to America, where in the last few months, over 30 statues have been torn down in our nation and even more defaced in an effort to remove history under the guise of racism.
The media tried to make us see one thing—that all four men were part of the Confederacy. But what they hid from readers was the more important fact that all four of these men were DEMOCRATS.
Another country in which statues were toppled is Venezuela. Formerly one of the most prosperous democracies in Latin America, it is now a poverty-stricken wasteland. Venezuelanpolitical activist Elizabeth Rogliani has warned Americans that we should be concerned about the toppling of statues and attempted erasure of American history.
According to Rogliani, “Founding Fathers are going to be attacked. Religious symbols are going to be attacked. And next, probably, museums. I mean, anything can be attacked if you just let it happen. If you just let the first ones come down, then [there are] no limits to what’s next.”
“It’s an attempt to change the identity of the country. That’s my opinion. And, that’s what they did to us,” she said. “Of course, it was different. At that point, they already had taken the government. But, at this point, they’re trying to change the national identity and they’re trying to destroy the system. And, if they get to the government, they’ll do it. They certainly will do it.”
So my wife and I decided we would drive up to St. Augustine for a couple of days next week. Decided we better make sure all the attractions were open for business. Most were, but the one main thing we wanted to do was take an open air trolley to experience the downtown district. It’s open, but you have to wear a MASK. Are you kidding me? No way I give my hard earned money to a bunch of fear mongers. When something happens and it make no sense, such as wearing a mask in the open air, it’s a spirit. We are eat up with fear today. I am so glad I am old. I lived my life, I didn’t walk around waiting to be scared or triggered. God help this soy-boy nation raised with participation trophies.
I was raised barefoot walking in a barnyard, riding barefoot in the back of a truck, drinking from a garden hose, not wearing a seat belt in a car. I survived but not sure about the soy-boys. Civilization might end in the near future, at least one you would want to live in.
We need to ask forgiveness for those we led astray as abortion and the LGBTQ+ agenda were forced into other nations.
We need to repent and be cleansed of the blood on our hands from the abortions traded for aid.
We need to pray that the seeds of immorality and corruption that were spread would wither and die.
We need to pray that those who perpetuated this evil will be revealed, removed from their positions and prosecuted.
We need to cancel any partnership or alliance with the demonic realm, whether that is through an organization, a country, or an individual, and that all such partnerships will be brought to light and cancelled.
Most importantly, we need to pray for revival in our land.
