Le dix Calendes d'Auril de faict Gotique, resuscité encor par gens malins:
Le feu estainct, assemblee diabolique, cherchant les os du d'Amant & Pselin.
The ten Calends of April of Gothic deed, resurrected again by evil people:
The fire is extinguished, assembly diabolical, seeking the bones of Amand & Psellus.
It is unlikely that anything resembling the "old normal" will ever return. Many small businesses, restaurants and bars especially, that did manage to reopen, will likely not recoup their losses since lockdown began. Many have gone out of business permanently.
In addition, small business owners, both black and white, have had their establishments attacked and destroyed by looters and by revolutionary groups, mostly Communists, Marxists, and Antifa, who have hijacked the Black Lives Matter movement ... and these ruined businesses will not be opening ever again. There is the threat of a second lockdown over autumn and winter 2021. If rioting, arson, looting, and murder continue in major US cities then spread to suburban America throughout the election and post-election period leading up to inauguration, and new lockdowns are ordered by state governors because of COVID-19 spikes, it is possible the level of violence and anarchy will escalate, resulting in a coup and the overthrow of the government, regardless of whether Democrats win the White House or Donald Trump is reelected. The rioters and revolutionary elements will become so powerful as to create a full blown REVOLUTION like Russia's in 1917 or France's in 1789, or worse, a CIVIL WAR.
It is unlikely that it was the French Revolution that Nostradamus was anticipating in this quatrain as the new calendar did not mark the beginning of the Revolution but the first day of the Republic: September 22, 1792. The ten calends of April in Gothic reckoning would be March 23. Proponents for a revolution calendar would have had it begin either January 2 or July 14 of 1789.
A new totalitarianism and the mass house arrests due to lockdowns will mark March 23, 2020 as the start of Year One. If a Revolution occurs, as was the case in France in 1789, a new calendar will be created and Year One declared to coincide with the events that marked its beginning, in March 2020. When the fire is extinguished, then will come the purges and the Terror.
This doesn't have to happen, but it MAY happen. In Corsican the phrase is "evil people" but in modern French the translation is "clever people."
In the end, the very foundations ("bones") of Christianity will be interrogated, represented in the West by Amand, Saint of Flanders and Bishop of Maastricht (6th Century AD), and in the east by philosopher Michael Psellus (11th Century AD). If the people are indeed evil, an anti-Christian age will commence ... not for the first time (see French Revolution and Reign of Terror and also Hitler's Third Reich), and also not for the last, unless this is truly the beginning of the end (see seven year reign of the beast and false prophet in Revelation).
One of the signs that this age is beginning is the reason I am writing this. It may seem silly on the surface, but is wrought with all kinds of implications. Many statues of historical figures have been torn down and are being torn down ... not only in the United States, but other countries as well!
And in some cases the new multitudes are crying out for other statues of contemporary pop stars to take their place, in particular Britney Spears and Oderus Urungus (who was portrayed by the late heavy metal vocalist, David Brockie). My guess is it won't be long before statues of Prince, Michael Jackson, David Bowie, Madonna, Taylor Swift, and others, living and dead, are erected to be worshipped as gods:
Des Roys & Princes dresseront simulacres, augures, creuz esleuez aruspices:
Corne, victume d'oree, & d'azur, d'acre, inrerpretez seront les extipices.
Kings & Princes will raise up idols, crosses, and augurs taking the auspices:
Horns, victims of gold and azure, bitter and fierce, interpreted will be their entrails.
Les simulacres d'or & argent enflez, qu'apres le rapt au lac furent gettez
Au desouvert estaincts tous & troublez. Au marbre script prescript intergetez.
The elevated gold & silver idols, which after the abduction at the lake were made
For all the holy discoveries & disturbed at the writing in marble, law interrupted.
What is missing are any real heads of the Revolution: there is no Marat, Danton, or Robespierre. The mob is never intelligent and its members are for all intentions "headless" ... but guiding the idiots' actions usually are intellectuals. There are none in this revolution or they are well hidden. Unless an intellectual leadership, usually a group of such men and women emerges, the revolution will turn into a CIVIL WAR. Most civil wars are failed revolutions. No revolution was ever led by Anonymous Cowards. Also no member or members of the Democratic Party can publicly assume responsibility, even though they are, because if they do, again, there will be civil war.
If history is again our guide, 2021 would then be a lot like 1790. If Trump is reelected in 2020 and the revolutionaries are in control, he and his wife Melania will be treated as figureheads and allowed to reside in the White House, but Trump will have no real power. Likewise with Joe Biden and his wife should Biden win. This is analogous to what happened to King Louis XVI and Marie Antoinette. If they seek to escape in 2022, they will be captured and held at another location in house arrest.
The Reign of Terror will begin in 2024 and whoever the President and First Lady are will be executed. The same holds true for Kamala Harris and her husband (the President and First Husband) if Biden wins but dies in office or resigns due to health issues. In 2025 the ringleaders of Revolution will themselves be executed and after a brief period of chaos and new terror, an effort will be made to restore a more civil order. The country will be so severely weakened that a new antichrist will take over in 2030 and lead the country into a world war in 2037. The United States and its antichrist will be destroyed in a nuclear attack in 2044.
