Pope Francis prayed that God would comfort Italy and the world in the midst of the raging Chinese coronavirus epidemic, appearing in an unprecedented Vatican audience in Saint Peter’s Square. Papal events at the Vatican are almost always filled with pilgrims and the faithful, but the ceremony overseen by the Pope was entirely empty on account of the strict quarantine imposed on Italy as the nation reels from an unmatched death count from the disease.

“May God’s blessing come down upon you as a consoling embrace,” said the Pope at the event. “Lord, bless the world. Give health to our bodies and comfort our hearts.”
The Pope encouraged prayer from the faithful for those directly involved in the response to the historic health epidemic- healthcare workers, doctors, grocery employees, police and volunteers.
The Pope chose to deliver the traditional ‘Urbi et Orbi’ address at the event, a Vatican tradition that is usually reserved for Christmas and Easter. The prayer implied the likely cancellation of Vatican Easter proceedings, with the devastation caused by the coronavirus in Italy likely precluding any major gatherings within the coming months, at least. Reports indicate that the Pope will celebrate traditional Good Friday and Easter Sunday masses, but alone, in a manner similar to Friday’s papal appearance.
Catholic Sunday Masses have been entirely cancelled in Italy, a nearly entirely unprecedented development that speaks to the gravity of the situation in the disease-stricken country. The nation had its worst day in terms of casualties on Friday, with deaths rising to 9,134, with a total national count of almost 87,000.
LOCKDOWN 2.0: Europe is Shutting Down Everything Again Due to COVID-19 Mass Hysteria
This is what Biden will do in America.
Europe is once again panicking over COVID-19, and political leaders are reinstituting draconian lockdown measures to shut down public life as a result.
“We are dealing with exponential growth,” German Economy Minister Peter Altmaier said to a virtual French-German economic conference in Berlin, according to Reuters. “In Germany, the number of new infections is rising by 70-75% compared to the week before.”
French Interior Minister Gerald Darmanin told the country to expect “difficult decisions” in the days to come regarding COVID-19 policy. Czech Prime Minister Andrej Babis is attempting to extend emergency powers until Dec. 3 in order to keep society shuttered.
In Russia, they have instituted a face mask mandate and are considering closing bars and restaurants. The Belgian government will decide on a national lockdown on Friday. Spain has instituted a national curfew that has been in place since Sunday.
Big League Politics has reported on the color-coded system of lockdown tyranny that is being implemented in the United Kingdom with COVID-19 fear used as the excuse:
Britain is rolling out their “three-tiered system” for restricting the liberties of its citizenry throughout the COVID-19 pandemic and beyond.
The plan is endorsed wholeheartedly by Prime Minister Boris Johnson, the Conservative Party figurehead who was elected to free Britain from globalist rule. Instead, he has implemented the technocracy like no other and essentially rendered the Brexit moot by abusing his authority in myriad ways.
Johnson introduced the new regime earlier this week. The national government will divide regional authorities into “local Covid alert levels”, which are listed as medium (tier 1), high (tier 2), and very high (tier 3). Tier 1 is color coded in yellow while Tier 2 is color coded in light orange with Tier 3 being color coded in dark orange. Each distinction brings a host of new restrictions that will cripple public life and destroy British businesses. Notice how there is no “low” level of threat even listed as an option here, as British authorities demonstrate that the return to a free society is no longer tenable.
“This is not how we want to live our lives, but this is the narrow path we have to tread between the social and economic trauma of a full lockdown and the massive human, and indeed economic cost of an uncontained epidemic,” Johnson said.
Johnson has effectively surrendered to the mass hysteria, lacking the strength and the will to defeat COVID-19 as quickly as President Donald Trump vanquished the virus.
“Engagement with other leaders in the north-west, the north-east and Yorkshire and Humber is continuing,” Johnson said. “I know how difficult this is. They, like us, like everyone in this house, are grappling with very real dilemmas, but we cannot let the NHS fall over when lives are at stake.
“So let me repeat the offer that we’re making to those local authorities: work with us on these difficult but necessary measures in the areas that are rated very high, in return for more support for local test and trace, more funding for local enforcement, the offer of support form the armed forces, and the job support scheme, as announced by the chancellor,” he added.
Meanwhile, U.S. President Donald Trump refuses to bow to fear in the face of the pandemic.
“Until November 4th., Fake News Media is going full on Covid, Covid, Covid,” President Donald Trump, in full campaign mode, tweeted on Tuesday. “We are rounding the turn. 99.9%.”
If Biden wins next week’s election, this sort of permanent virus shutdown regime is coming to the United States. A vote for President Trump is a vote to preserve the rule of law against the burgeoning technocracy.
