According to my wall calendar, today is Yom Hazikaron l'Yitzchak Rabin - a day to remember a Prime Minister who became a "sacrifice for peace" on November 4, 1995. But, that's not what this phrase refers to -"Remember, remember the 4th of November."
Actually, that is a misquote. The correct version is "Remember, remember the 5th of November." It comes from a rhyme that is chanted on Guy Fawkes Day in England. Guy Fawkes was part of a conspiracy to assassinate King James I and blow up Parliament on that day in 1605 in a bid to restore a Catholic to the throne. He and his co-conspirators did not recognize the legitimacy of the ruling regime.
This is alluded to in the futuristic movie "V for Vendetta."
The film is set in an alternative future where a neo-fascist regime has subjugated the United Kingdom. ...V for Vendetta has been seen by many political groups as an allegory of oppression by government; libertarians and anarchists have used it to promote their beliefs. David Lloyd stated: "The Guy Fawkes mask has now become a common brand and a convenient placard to use in protest against tyranny....This plays right into Antifa's vision of itself as a protest movement against fascism and a liberation movement from what they perceive to be an illegal regime. Antifa has declared a "Day of Rage" for November the 4th.

...US Department of Defense (DOD) will simulate a “communications interoperability” training exercise across the United States on November 04-06. The announcement released on October 24 has not been widely distributed to the media, because the drill is simulating a total grid collapse and could spark public fear.This drill is predicated upon an EMP resulting from a solar coronal mass ejection (CME) and not an atmospherically-detonated nuke from North Korea or Iran.
Just last week we read about how God destroyed the world with water and there is a tradition that in the future it will be destroyed by fire. And this Shabbat, which just happens to be the 4th of November, we read about some cities which, 4000 years later, still represent in global consciousness the epitome of wickedness - Sodom and Gomorrah - and how they were destroyed by fire and brimstone that rained from Heaven.
This drill covers the time period between the 15th of Cheshvan, the full moon, and the 17th, which is the anniversary of the global destruction we know simply as the Mabul - the Great Flood.
What will be? What will be? Heads up!
