Praying Medic: Qanon February 2020 (multiple posts)

Time to catch up with Praying Medic Geopolitical and Q analysis…I like how he rationally presents facts and connects the dots without sensationalizing anything. As a spiritually tuned in person, his hunches have proved to be correct more often than not. Since MSM distorts facts, lies to us, and is biased, it’s important to consider other self-defining perspectives, not only those dictated to us by popular MSM “news” organizations, whose funding and influence is questionable, and reveal the nature of their bias. ~PB

The media insist Qanon is a baseless conspiracy. They could settle the debate by asking POTUS about Q.

So, why don’t they?

There are some serious and interesting questions raised here that no one seems to be asking much, or answering…I have heard some reference to these things in the MSM but they gloss over and dismiss it, as always…Neon Revolt is clear, concise and informative, while presenting information and offering possible theories about what this information may indicate. ~PB

#FullMoon #LunarEclipse #SolarFlare

The Full Moon Lunar Eclipse takes place on June 5th, 2020 and is opening the Gateway to the Planetary Galactic Activation on June 20-21st 2020 bringing in some major changes in consciousness that will begin to change everything as we know it. Lots of hidden information/wisdom coming to the surface. June 8th is a 13th day of a 13 day cycle just days after the Lunar Eclipse which can mean increase in Solar Activity. The New Moon Solar Eclipse will be bringing in a more power energy- Cosmic/Solar activity.

It is very mixed in terms of experiences/energy/perception & it really just depends on the individual & Solar Activity influences us all differently. But many are about to awaken to a much higher state of Being- and I will talk about this more in the next video ( Solstice/ New Moon Solar Eclipse Planetary Galactic  Axis Activation) -it is the next phase of one cycle that culminated in 2011 and a new shift/cycle that began in 2012- synchronizing with planetary consciousness (tier of hierarchy within- all kingdoms are happening within- eventually every Soul experiences this/Enlightenment/Self-Realization & begins to embody Cosmic Consciousness fully… it all takes time to integrate, and the timing- or how long it takes for each- depends on the ego & the depths of the beliefs of polarity within at all levels of Creation.

Sending healing, protection, love & gratitude to all- bringing to Light what can no longer remain hidden or suppressed within Humanity. 💜 It’s time to humble ourselves, acknowledge what we need to change & come together as Humanity/Family & support one another in order to heal. We can no longer remain divided, we can no longer hurt another- it is destructive, inhumane & goes against Universal Law. We are meant to build one another up, not keep another down. Part of healing is not just expression, but being heard.

When we- Humanity- overcome the battle WITHIN (thoughtforms/invisible forces on subjective planes, fields of thought charged by emotion)– we are no longer IN the battle. We can observe, but we aren’t swayed out of our true knowing of who and what we ARE- Spirit/Source/God.

The physical is a matrix of the mind. If we cannot control our own consciousness- another will for it’s own purpose/desire/influence- its just the reality of reality. All about energy. Give & Take. There is a Law of Consciousness- if we do not know it, we are influenced by another ego, another will/desire, or destructive influences within the Collective Mind.

💜🧡💛💚💙❤💜🧡💛💚💙❤💜🧡💛💚💙❤

And Ofcourse Black Lives Matter! Equality is a Divine Right.. and experiencing or feeling an injustice is not “karmic” or “deserved” it means that one Soul has been influenced/dominated by another. Any feeling of injustice within, needs to be expressed or it manifests as dis-ease. The dis-ease manifestation of the world has been suppression of self-expression… which is suppression of Spirit- Life- Breath.

The world is speaking through subconscious metaphor… in many ways

The subconscious MUST out-picture all feelings/beliefs impressed upon it, the exact likeness of the feeling/belief… it will not alter the feeling of belief- it doesn’t matter if they are constructive, destructive, true or false, just or unjust, wanted or unwanted. What we dwell on with feeling- is impressed upon the womb of creation & is taken as a request then the subconscious go immediately to work by giving the feeling/belief form (manifestation.) It is our own job as individuals within Humanity to do this inner work, to change our ways of thinking- to balance where we are divided within. The Kingdom of Heaven is within, all things come from within- from the subconscious. We cannot see other then the contents of our own consciousness… all that we see outside or are aware of, is within.

Identified as one of the ten most important people in the media that nobodys ever met, Andrew Breitbart details why leftward-leaning Hollywood is dangerous for America and why the people who run it are uninteresting, vitriolic, and vicious. Segueing from Hollywood to the Internet, Breitbart explores why the right dominates talk radio and the left seems to do better on the Internet and how the decline of print media is changing the nature of the national political conversation.

 

Exploiting George Floyd’s Death by Lloyd Marcus 

A different perspective than what we generally hear lately. I don’t think there should be access to just one narrative, and I find Lloyd Marcus to be refreshing, as he reminds us not only of the surreal times we are living in, but of what’s important in life, regardless. ~PB

AA LLOYD’S COMMENTARY

Exploiting George Floyd’s Death

by Lloyd Marcus • June 2, 2020 • 

Lloyd Marcus, The Unhyphenated American

99.9% of our American family is saddened and outraged over the wrongful death of George Floyd. We want the responsible police officer prosecuted to the fullest extent of the law.

And yet, rather than bringing our nation together, fake news media and the Democrats are excitedly throwing gasoline on the flames of racial hate and division. Their message is that America is still a hellhole of racism in which blacks are routinely murdered by whites and police. Blacks must continue voting for Democrats to keep racist white America at bay.

As expected, Democrats and fake news media are absurdly blaming Trump for Floyd’s death. These vile human beings in the media will say anyone wearing a MAGA hat is a racist complicit in Floyd’s death. Minneapolis rioters chanted, “Kill the white folks.”

The mayor of Minneapolis absurdly said the riots and looting in response to Floyd’s death are justifiable because they represent 400 years of pent-up black rage. That is such a crock of pandering leftist nonsense. The rioters are nothing more than paid domestic terrorists and ghetto trash exploiting the incident to go on an illegal shopping spree.

The vast majority of the rioters wreaking havoc have never experienced an ounce of racism in their entire lives. Americans have been trained to know they had better kiss blacks’ derrieres at every opportunity or suffer crucifixion by Democrats and fake news media. For crying out loud, beginning in kindergarten, leftist-controlled public schools teach white students that they were born racist scum.  Therefore, all whites must feel forever guilty, apologetic, and accommodating to blacks.

The dirty little secret is Democrats love creating race-based crises because it allows them opportunities to demand more sure-to-fail gazillion dollar government-fix-it-programs which end up fattening Democrat pockets. Along with selling their lie that America sucks, Democrats believe spreading racial hate and division wins them votes.

When I speak of ghetto trash, I am not referring to poor people. I was raised in an all-black eleven-story high-rise government project in Baltimore, Maryland. Grateful residents kept their apartments immaculate. Other residents were trifling ghetto trash with zero respect for the brand-new building, taking every opportunity to destroy it. I was around nine years old. Everyone told me everything wrong was always the white man’s fault. I said, “How can we stop mean white people from sneaking into our building at night; breaking the elevators, smashing liquor bottles, breaking light bulbs, and urinating in the stairwells?”

Democrats are all over TV exploiting Floyd’s death to falsely claim that blacks are routinely persecuted today the way they were in the 1950s. Democrats and fake news media are behaving as if eight years of America’s first black president never happened.

Sadly, the behavior of one bad cop helps Democrats and fake news media demonize all cops. Data confirms that cops are the greatest defenders of black lives

In truth, the greatest threat to black lives is other blacks. Democrats and fake news media remain dead silent about 30 to 40 blacks murdering each other every weekend in urban Democrat hellholes like Baltimore, Chicago, and Washington D.C. Shouldn’t those black lives matter? Where are the outrage and anger?

Democrats and fake news media only care about black lives when it furthers their socialist/communist political agenda.

Democrats and fake news media literally worship Planned Parenthood which targets blacks for abortion. Black women make up only 14% of the country’s childbearing population. And yet, 36% of all aborted babies are black. Democrats and fake news media actually celebrate the death of aborted black babies. Clearly, they are saying black baby lives do not matter.

As a proud grateful American who happens to be black, I am appalled to witness Democrats and fake news media exploiting the tragic death of George Floyd. They are stirring the pot of racial hate to instigate violence while disrespecting blacks as useful idiots.

Blacks have experienced unprecedented prosperity and historic low unemployment under Trump.  To separate black voters from Trump, insidiously evil Democrats will use Floyd’s death to outrageously assert that reelecting Trump will mean open season for police to murder blacks. As baseless and stupid as that sounds, it reflects Democrats’ low opinion of blacks. It is the sort of emotional brain-dead lie Democrats believe will win over easily deceived black voters.

Reopen America Now! By Lloyd Marcus

AA LLOYD’S COMMENTARY

Reopen America Now!

by Lloyd Marcus • May 29, 2020 • 0 Comments

Lloyd Marcus The Unhyphenated American

Sunday, Memorial Day weekend, was a beautiful sunny day. Mary and I left our West Virginia home to make the 40-mile trek to Walmart and Home Depot in Virginia. We drove past a Virginia megachurch which usually has state cops directing traffic for the congregation. The parking lot was empty with a large “closed” sign. Meanwhile, Walmart and Home Depot parking lots were packed.

Around 50% of shoppers wore masks. Absurdly, I saw toddlers wearing masks, which were particularly annoying. Professor Dolores J. Cahill, PhD is a highly credentialed and respected Immunologist and Molecular Biologist. Prof. Cahill, world-renowned Dr. Russel Blaylock, Dr. Judy Mikovits, and countless other scientists around the world say wearing masks is dangerous.


Prof. Cahill explains that coronavirus is not transmitted through the air. It is transmitted through droplets on surfaces. Therefore, there is absolutely no need to wear a mask and no need for social distancing. Prof. Cahill says when you are covered with a mask, you have less oxygen which puts your immune system under stress. Because you are under immune stress, latent viruses in your body will reappear. You will have more coronavirus and other latent viruses will reemerge.  The bottom line, fake news media insidiously hyping fear is harming children. Which is not new. Everything leftists cram down the throats of the public always harms people.

At Home Depot, not only did the young woman who mixed my paint wear a mask, she spoke to me from behind a Plexiglas window. Stopping for gas at a tiny West Virginia convenience store, a masked staffer stood guard at the door restricting the number of customers allowed inside. The two checkout clerks worked from behind newly installed glass walls; both wore masks. Dollar General had strips of duck tape six feet apart on the sidewalk to ensure that patrons social distanced outside.

Health experts’ predictions of catastrophic deaths were wrong. Over 98% of people who get coronavirus recover.  And yet, in just a few months, fear and political exploitation have taken us from a booming economy to living in a nightmare apocalyptic sci-fi movie. Americans are suffering Great Depression levels of unemployment, overstressed food banks, skyrocketing suicides, and Democrats urinating on the Constitution, declaring themselves our supreme dictators. Observing all the extreme restrictions and precautions, I thought, “Dear Lord, we are experiencing nationwide hysteria.”

My skin crawls whenever I hear fake news media and Democrats on TV scolding and branding Americans selfish for desiring to reopen their businesses to serve the public and feed their families.


Always believing themselves smarter than God, wicked Democrats are actually advocating that we social distance from now on. God built us to withstand viruses. And yet, these arrogant knuckleheads say humans must never again interact the way they have since the beginning of time. Every day, I ask myself, “What on earth is wrong with these people?”

Back in April when Trump announced plans to reopen America, I noticed that Democrat and a few RINO governors immediately tripled down on their crazy edicts such as ordering all shoppers to wear masks. Their wicked game plan is to stop America from reopening and convince voters that Trump is deadly.

Despite Trump being proven innocent, Democrats continue promoting the lie that Trump stole the presidency via collusion with Russia. They impeached him, falsely accusing him of making illegal demands in a phone call with the president of Ukraine. These illegal schemes along with others have failed to end Trump’s presidency. Using the coronavirus lock-down to destroy the American economy is Democrats’ and fake news medias’ last hope of removing this pro-Christian, America-first Neanderthal from the Oval Office.

Therefore, these months leading to the November election are going to be a battle like you have never seen before. If you think Democrats and fake news media have behaved badly thus far, you ain’t seen nothing yet.

In June, Mary and I will leave our almost-Heaven West Virginia home, flying to the West Coast to tour with the Conservative Campaign Committee on their “Operation Restore America” initiative.

A guy sent me an email saying both political parties are corrupt. While that may be true, we cannot stop fighting to turn our country around. God miraculously gave us President Trump. Realizing that the Israelites prevailed in battle when Moses’ hands were in the air, Aaron and Hur held up Moses’ arms. We must hold up Trump’s arms to make America great again, again.

America recently celebrated Memorial Day. It would be a devastating slap in the face to the brave men and women who died for our freedom to allow Democrats and fake news media to transform us into a socialist/communist nation.

Unfortunately, fake news media has so successfully filled some conservatives with fear of coronavirus that they accept Democrats repealing our constitutional liberties. Incredibly, they want this unnecessary lock-down which is literally destroying our country to continue.

Folks, those of us who love freedom and America must be the adults in the room, firmly demanding that this insane lockdown end immediately. God is on our side.

5th June 2020: Lunar Eclipse in 16th degree of Sagittarius: Courageous Hearts by Sarah Varcas

Sarah Varcus is one of my favorite Astrologers, I get great insights from her perspective. I don’t read her enough, though she is generous with her free access to much of her work. ~PB

(p.s.) This speaks volumes to me:

“An alliance between Chiron, Uranus and Mercury at the time of this eclipse unlocks fresh perspectives. But to benefit from them we must reclaim the fundamental right to honour our own experience and not have it dismissed, ridiculed or silenced if it runs contrary to the received wisdom of the time. This takes courage in a world where people are being demonised and discredited for daring to question the ‘party line’ and reflect more deeply on the narrative they’re being fed. But if ever there was a time for courage it is now! Courageous thought, courageous speech, courageous hearts open to a new world in which we’re not told how things are but instead discern, through digesting many perspectives and listening, perhaps most importantly, to the voice within that knows truth.”

 

 

5th June 2020: Lunar Eclipse in 16th degree of Sagittarius:
Courageous Hearts
by Sarah Varcas | Astro-Awakenings

This is the first of three eclipses this eclipse season, which also features a solar eclipse in Cancer on 21st June 2020 and a lunar eclipse in Capricorn on 5th July 2020.

All dates are UT

This lunar eclipse raises the issue of dependence and conditioning. In Sagittarius, it potentises the transfer of power away from the expert elite triggered by the North Node’s arrival in Gemini last month. Against the backdrop of recent unprecedented – and in some quarters hotly debated – social and interpersonal restrictions the world over, further compounded by protests and riots in the wake of George Floyd’s death at the hands of the US police, this eclipse cycle alerts us to a burgeoning shift of perspective, auguring an ever-increasing challenge to the authorities from people who have simply had enough.

The Sabian Symbol for the degree of this eclipse speaks of seagulls circling a ship in expectation of food. It’s fair to say this isn’t the most natural food source for seagulls, but it’s convenient and reliable. That’s why they do it. If you’ve ever eaten a sandwich on the beach you’ll know how quickly you become central to their quest for an easy meal and how easy it is to lead a flock of hungry birds down the beach if you wander off whilst eating!

These images convey a warning: if we make ourselves dependent upon a single supply (of anything), the source of that supply can control and lead us where it wants us to go before we even realise we’ve been led. Focused on the satisfaction and security of an easy meal we overlook the changing scenery and the distance developing between where we used to be and where we’ve wound up now. In Sagittarius we gain nourishment from information and learning, from broad concepts, highly sophisticated bodies of knowledge and honed expertise. Sagittarius is the sign associated with law, religion and medicine: three institutions that have shaped our modern world in many ways. This eclipse is an excellent time to reflect on how much power we’ve given them to determine what matters in our lives, and whether now might be the time to expand our perspective beyond what they want us to believe.

An alliance between Chiron, Uranus and Mercury at the time of this eclipse unlocks fresh perspectives. But to benefit from them we must reclaim the fundamental right to honour our own experience and not have it dismissed, ridiculed or silenced if it runs contrary to the received wisdom of the time. This takes courage in a world where people are being demonised and discredited for daring to question the ‘party line’ and reflect more deeply on the narrative they’re being fed. But if ever there was a time for courage it is now! Courageous thought, courageous speech, courageous hearts open to a new world in which we’re not told how things are but instead discern, through digesting many perspectives and listening, perhaps most importantly, to the voice within that knows truth.

Mercury is currently preparing to turn retrograde in Cancer on 18th June 2020. Between this eclipse and that moment, we would do well to FEEL into what’s happening in our world right now. Let our intuition guide us towards an understanding that holds water in a deeper and more profound way. Once Mercury is retrograde, and as the next two eclipses occur, we’ll have the opportunity to recalibrate our internal knowing according to information that comes our way. But we can only do that if we give our intuition a platform from which to speak, and reclaim the power invested in the experts as they dictate what our experience should be.

As we stand at this juncture in human history there are weighty choices to be made and we must each make them as best we can. This eclipse season will both reveal the shadow side of readily accepted sources of information – hidden interests, inaccurate assumptions, covert agendas –  as well as illuminate in their wake new sources of knowledge previously eclipsed by the might of received wisdom and unquestioned ‘truths’. The path ahead remains scattered with obstacles and the battle for dominion over the collective mind continues unabated. This lunar eclipse is just the beginning and there is much to be revealed and digested before we can decide, collectively, the quality of our future.

Saturn is now retrograding through Aquarius before returning to Capricorn in July. You can read more about what this means for us in terms of freedom of thought and speech here. But as we encounter this eclipse we may well find stirring within, a more insistent demand for information that challenges the dominant narrative and a burgeoning need to forge alliances with others who sense a more pressing truth bubbling to the surface. For whatever’s going on in this world today, it is we the people, not the privileged elite with vested interests in our obedience to their cause, who can – and must – decide the shape our lives take from here.

INFERIOR CONJUNCTION OF VENUS | EarthSky

Inferior Conjunction of Venus

June 2, 2020: Tomorrow, June 3rd, Venus will pass almost directly
between the Earth and the sun. This is having a strange effect on the
planet’s shape. “It is like a ring of fire,” says Didier Favre, who sends
this picture from Brétigny-sur-Orge, France:

venus_crop

When Favre took the picture on June 1st, the sun was only 2 degrees
from Venus–hence the blue sky. “It was not an easy picture to take,”
says Favre, “but what a beautiful view!”

Why does Venus look like a ring? Simple: The planet’s nightside is facing
Earth. Sunlight filtering through the edge of Venus’s carbon dioxide
atmosphere forms a luminous ring around the dark disk.

Astronomers call this an “inferior conjunction of Venus,” and it’s one of the
best in decades. At closest approach on June 3rd, Venus will be only 29
arcminutes (about half a degree) from the center of the solar disk. Only
twice since 1961 has Venus come closer–during the famous Venus Transits
of 2004 and 2012 [ref].

soho_conjunction_crop

A SOHO coronagraph image of the ongoing conjunction. The horizontal
line running through Venus is caused by the planet’s bright light overloading
the pixels of SOHO’s digital camera.

Observing Venus at this time is dangerous. With the sun just a fraction of a

degree away, it is easy for stray sunlight to sneak into optical systems, damaging
sensitive electronics and hurting human eyes. Only skilled observers taking careful
precautions should attempt it.

In space, the Solar and Heliospheric Observatory (SOHO) will be monitoring
the conjunction. Coronagraphs onboard SOHO use opaque disks to block the
glare of the sun, revealing nearby stars and planets.  It’s a type of  artificial solar eclipse.

Even SOHO will have some trouble, though. On June 3rd, Venus will be so close
to the sun that it briefly dips behind the coronagraph’s opaque disks, hiding the
moment of closest approach. Ground-based observers will have to try to fill in the gap.
