Missed by many amidst the news of civil unrest in the nation was the discovery of an old interview which may shed light on the reason for our current national condition.
I have written in the past about the practice of occultism among our national elites in politics and entertainment. I began a journey of discovery about the topic when, during the 2016 election season, Wikileaks released the personal emails of Clinton insider John Podesta. The disturbing revelations included his communications with one Marina Abromovic, a supposed performance artist, inviting her to his home to perform the sickening "spirit cooking" ritual.
The unearthed clip was from an old interview with Abromovic in which she explained that Donald Trump was going to rise to power, and that he was a "magician" who would "wake up the world." I am unwilling to assume that a devotee of occultism is using the term "magician" as a figure of speech. What does this highly-placed practicioner of the dark arts know about Donald Trump?
You may recall Trump enthusiasts excitedly reporting the 2007 "prophecy" of the late televangelist Kim Clement that Donald Trump would become President, and that he would face impeachment threats but emerge unscathed. Amazingly, Clement also "prophesied" at the same time that Bill Gates would bring a new financial system to the world. In the wake of the COVID-19 lockdown, Gates has emerged on the global stage to promote his "quantum dot tattoo" identification system, which allows for cashless, touchless financial interactions. (Unbelievably, the quantum dot tattoo uses a patented substance called "Luciferase," and the patent number is 060606 - "666." If the symbolism of this is not intentional, it is an incredible coincidence.) He has touted the benefits of his injectable identification system which also removes the need for carrying personal ID cards, and tweeted that because of COVID-19 there is no alternative to the implementation a global vaccination program. End-times prophecy watchers have been sounding the alarm that the Mark of the Beast is being prepared for the public.
Clement was incredibly accurate in his predictions, but was that because he was sharing prophecies from the Lord, or channelling the plans of the enemy?
There are additional reasons for concern about the motivations of Bill Gates. A few months ago, Microsoft made the startling choice to use the above-mentioned spirit cooker Mabrina Abromovic in a promotional video for the new Microsoft virtual reality system. (The promotions were removed from the internet rather quickly after severe backlash from the public.)
In his pre-Presidential days, Trump expressed concerns about possible risks of vaccinations, which caused many critics of Big Pharma and the liberty-minded who object to mandatory vaccinations to view him as a kindred soul. It is odd that a man who was once viewed as a vaccination skeptic pledged, in the wake of the COVID-19 crisis, to fast-track a vaccination for the illness and make it available to all Americans. It is even more odd that a few weeks ago, Trump filmed an ad in support of the Bill and Melinda Gates foundation GAVI, the Global Vaccine Alliance, which works to increase access to vaccinations in poor countries.
To honest observers, it is clear that there is a canyon between Donald Trump's rhetoric and his actions. Yet, enthusiasm for him remains for a large number of people. For millions of people, the "Q-Anon" phenomenon plays a role in their unwavering faith. "Q-Anon" is a mysterious entity who supposedly channels insider information to Trump's faithful followers about his 4D-chess plans to drain the swamp. Every action taken by Trump which seems to betray his promises is explained as a brilliant part of a long-term, complex scheme to bring down the bad actors in government. Millions of people still tenaciously hold to the Q-Anon advice to "trust the plan," because, despite copious evidence to the contrary, "patriots are in control." Recently, Donald Trump Jr. and General Flynn have retweeted social media posts made by "Q-Anon" supporters, indirectly signalling support for the theory.
Nobody knows who Q-Anon is. Some believe the phenomenon is run by patriotic insiders in the intelligence community. Theories include Q-Anon being run by General Flynn, Barron Trump, John F. Kennedy, Jr. (who supposedly faked his death years ago and is now helping Trump behind the scenes), or some kind of artificial intelligence program. To reiterate, millions of people have faith in a secret plan based solely upon on a series of anonymous internet posts. How can otherwise sensible people be convinced to believe Q-Anon rather than plain evidence? It's almost as if they are under the spell of a magician.
