PostFrance Will Reopen on January 20th: A Coincidence? (George Aucoin, -France, 11/25/20 2:59 am)
Last night, November 24th, the Covid-weary people of France, currently under curfew and stay-at-home orders, awaited the going-forward plan of their President Emmanuel Macron set for transmission at 20:00 French time.
In a relatively short (approximately 30 min) pre-recorded statement to all of France, the President of the 5th Republic announced that France would deliberately reopen over the next two months. Not 60 days but the next two months. What day will France, under the current government plan, achieve complete liberation from Covid-19 restrictions? January 20, 2021. It will be a day to celebrate.
Curious that. Macron is an unabashed globalist and former Socialist party member. Nobody more than Macron in Europe (perhaps Angela Merkel) wishes a burial of the Trump American presidency. That date, January 20, 2021, if the cheating, lying, pompously posturing far left of American politics has its ill-begotten way, will be the end of the globalist's nightmare. An unvetted, demonstrably mentally incompetent pretender to American political determinism will be sworn in as President of the greatest and most powerful country on earth on January 21, 2021.
Who pretends globalists don't conspire?
JE comments: George, I understand your disappointment with the Biden win, but how can you characterize his nascent administration as "far left"? Consider the personnel selections: Janet Yellen and Antony Blinken for starters. They are about as centrist and mainstream as one can imagine. Dare I say, they are conservative in the strictest sense, as in conserving institutions and the order that held sway for decades before Trump shook things up. It is precisely the left that will be dismayed by these picks.
To shift gears, I find it intriguing that Macron would address the nation in a recording. Is this common practice in France? US presidents tend to speak live, possibly to give an aura of "authenticity" to the message.
