This Sunday Happens to be Named ‘Irma’ on the Czech Name Day Calendar

Published

on

In the Czech Republic, every day of the year has a unique personal name, in which people celebrate the “name day” that corresponds with their own — except for national holidays. In a bizarre coincidence, September 10th’s name just so happens to be Irma, same as the hurricane that is expected to touch down on the Southern United States over the weekend.

The calendar is not just fun and games. In the past, parents were expected to choose the name that corresponded with that day, all of which were originally pulled from the Roman Catholic Calendar of Saints. Unique or unusual names would have to be submitted and approved by a government office. Many of the names on the original list have been updated in recent decades to keep up with modern trends, however.

Name Day gained even greater meaning to the people of the Czech Republic in the 1980’s due to the fall of Communism and resurgence of the importance of individual identity versus serfdom for the “state.”

Hurricanes are named after humans because it is easier to remember than numbers or scientific terms. The Geneva-based World Meteorological Organization uses six alphabetically-arranged lists of 21 names for naming the storms. Names currently in the roster can be found on the National Hurricane Center website.

Given that both lists have names chosen long ago, the coincidence has been noted as quite remarkable by those who are familiar with the Name Day traditions.

Florida residents in several areas have now been ordered to evacuate as the category five hurricane is expected to hit as soon as Friday. Irma has already struck the small island of Barbuda, which has been reduced to nearly 100% rubble. Gaston Browne, the Prime Minister of the island, has stated that “the entire housing stock was damaged. It is just total devastation.” He added that the island is nearly uninhabitable in the hurricane’s wake.

Likewise, the island of Saint-Martin is “almost destroyed,” according to government officials and Richard Branson’s private island in the Caribbean has been “completely and utterly devastated.”

“I have never seen anything like this hurricane. Necker and the whole area have been completely and utterly devastated,” Branson wrote in a blog post on the Virgin website. Fortunately, he and his staff are all safe and physically unharmed.

Irma is the strongest hurricane to ever hit the Atlantic basin outside the Caribbean and Gulf of Mexico.

Bezos-Linked Thinktank Official Calls for Michael Anton’s Execution for Exposing Anti-Trump Color Revolution

A top official with the billionaire-backed Berggruen Institute has called for the kidnapping and execution of writer Michael Anton for exposing the color revolution coup that is taking place to oust President Donald Trump from office regardless of November’s voting results.

Claremont Institute President Ryan Williams highlighted the grotesque tweet made by Vice President of Programs Nils Gilman comparing Anton to French fascist sympathizer Robert Brasillach:

The Berggruen Institute has collaborated intently with the Washington Post in the past. The rag, owned by Amazon founder and technocratic globalist Jeff Bezos, worked with Berggruen on WorldPost, which later became Noema Magazine. They regularly publish pretentious drivel that virtually nobody reads.

Big League Politics has reported about the coup attempt that is in the works through the Soros-backed Transition Integrity Project:

A Soros-backed “election integrity” group is setting the stage for a revolution against President Donald Trump after November’s election.

The Transition Integrity Project, an organization featuring a bipartisan group of Trump haters, is claiming that President Donald Trump will cause violence if he disputes the upcoming election results. They are running simulations that they claim indicate that Trump and his supporters will create mayhem.

“All of our scenarios ended in both street-level violence and political impasse,” said Rosa Brooks, a professor of law and policy at Georgetown University, who set up the TIP. “The law is essentially … it’s almost helpless against a president who’s willing to ignore it,” she added.

Revolver noted that Brooks is an operative of George Soros with ties to his Open Society Institute going back decades. She served as Special Counsel to the President at the Open Society Institute in New York from 2006-07.

Brooks’ deep connections to Soros have helped her successfully navigate the ranks of the Washington D.C. elite. She was senior adviser to Assistant Secretary Harold Hongju Koh at the U.S. State Department. She taught at the University of Virginia School of Law before moving over to Georgetown. She is also on the Advisory Committee of National Security Action and the Steering Committee of the Leadership Council for Women in National Security. Her deep state bona fides are second to none.

Two of the Republicans who participated in Brooks’ study are neocons Bill Kristol and David Frum. They were the type of individuals tasked with war gaming as President Trump, the man who they have devoted their careers to opposing. Kristol is now funded by a Democrat oligarch and Frum continues to parrot Russian collusion lies to this very day.

“Our scenario exercises did not end in good places, but important to note that this does not mean that there is something inevitable about chaos and constitutional crisis in the coming months – just that these particular exercises suggest that these are real possibilities,” Brooks said about her study’s findings.

“The goal of the exercises was not to give people nightmares, but rather to identify possible inflection points to prevent or mitigate catastrophic outcomes to the 2020 presidential election,” she added.

Brooks hopes that policymakers act on the findings of her study, adding that “state governors, attorneys general, legislative leaders and secretaries of state need to think through these issues now, and understand the electoral system and relevant laws now, and not wait until Election Day to think about everything that could go wrong.”

Darren Beattie of Revolver has also exposed this dastardly plot by the left-wing fifth column that has implanted itself at the highest levels of government:

The far left is playing for keeps. If conservatives are not willing to do whatever is necessary to defeat this threat, America and Western Civilization will be no more.
