  1. The Personal Poet
    Nostradamus said it first!
    The end is nigh! No joke no lie
    The world will die With you and I
    The time has come nowhere to run
    As was foretold will now become
    The anti-Christ Has now arrived
    His evil will explode our sky’s
    With clever words and bad intentions
    This man won all the elections
    Living in his money tower
    Practising political power
    Promises and lies untold
    Working on the human souls
    No sooner was this man was elected
    All sense and reason was rejected
    His arrogance is narcissistic
    All actions are antagonist
    Already breaking every vow
    Babylon his nation now
    The truth abused and ostracised
    Until no longer recognised
    In such short time,he’s set the course
    Nation to nation show of force
    Divide and rule to break our trust
    Until our worlds reduced to dust
    Humanity’s now torn asunder
    Demonic forces pull us under
    The world will slowly realise
    That this man is the prince of lies
    The time has come to beg and pray
    Forgiveness for the end of days. 🙏🏻

  2. *Encyclopedia of the Russian Empire*
    *2036 Edition*

    *_The collapse of the USA_*
    _ _ _ _ _ _ _

    The dominant world power of the twentieth century, the United States of America, could be elegantly integrated into the Russian empire by our great leader Vladimir Putin through a genius master plan which origins date back to the early 1990s.
    Leader Putin realized that the Russian empire was not able to challenge the USA in open confrontations, back then. Therefore leader Putin, based on his experience from his time in Russian intelligence services, started to develop a strategic initiative to undermine the political system of the arch enemy with the aim of installing a US president.
    The long list of first measures included:
    – infiltrating media outlets like Fox News
    – infiltrating the US National Rifle Association
    – infiltrating the Republican Party
    – a search for suitable candidates for Russian led US presidency
    The career of one of the potential candidates, a US real estate mogul named Donald Trump, developed promisingly. After two decades of business relationships with Russian oligarchs, laundering money through real estate transactions, Mr. Trump was not only totally indebted to Russia but also totally compromised. And his character traits, narcissism and greed, made him a promising candidate for further development.
    This included measures to boost his popularity. Besides books written by ghost writers, his TV appearances as the host of the show “The Apprentice” made him a public figure with perceived qualities as a successful businessman and leader.
    In 2015 leader Putin ordered Donald Trump to run for the US presidency.
    The Russian efforts to support this attempt included:
    1.) Infiltration of multiple social media platforms with Russian fake personas and trolls as well as bots to multiply specific messages
    2.) Invitations to high-ranked NRA officials and members of the Republican party to Russia
    3.) Bribing and extorting strategic persons within US politics and media outlets (Several Novichoc assassinations at the time added credibility to these extortion threats.)
    4.) Leaking exactly targeted and exactly timed negative information to discredit Hillary Clinton, the presidential candidate of the Democratic party.
    On November 8th, 2016 Donald Trump won the US presidential election and immediately started his successful work to strengthen the Russian empire.
    His main achievements included:
    1.) Destruction of the North Atlantic Treaty Organization (NATO), in which the USA used to have a leading role
    2.) Weakening the leading US role in world economy through new domestic and international policies
    3.) Weakening the leading US role in world trade through extreme, factually unjustified tariffs
    4.) Destabilizing the US federal system by vastly increasing the US federal debt and using federal forces as a new presidential police
    5.) Decimating the US population by over a million through exploitation of the Covid-19 pandemic
    After losing the 2020 presidential election, but refusing to step down as US president, he ignited a civil war in December 2020.
    After five months of unrests the united forces of the presidential police together with NRA equipped civil MAGA forces prevailed and Donald Trump declared himself president for life on May 17th, 2021.

    In all this Russian experts under the leadership of Vladimir Putin advised president Trump in every detail.

    After two years of preparations president Trump declared the Union of Russia and the USA in his Christmas speech on December 25, 2023, explaining it as the biggest peace initiative in world history.

    On his death bed on December 18th, 2024 Donald Trump was granted the Russian patriotic medal of honor of the highest rank by leader Putin himself for his invaluable role in strengthening the Russian empire, which in our US colonies is known as “United States of America and Russia” (USAR).
    Donald Trump died on January 5th, 2025 in Florida and was buried on the Cemetery of the Russian Heros, Moscow on January 13th.

  3. I believe Dr Fauci.Too bad tRump didn’t now 26 people in Whitehouse have virus.This virus is a killer.stay safe.✌

  4. “Virus was the democrats party hoax!” the big liar clown said. “fake news too! ” he said it louder. Might be it is time to inject something that you recommended to yourself
    to prove that you are right. Virus, he said you are a hoax, you are fake. Pls show him who you are show him if you are real or fake. Bring him with you if you can. introduce yourself to his whole
    family too if you can because they show no respect to you because they don’t wear mask no social distance. He has already brought so much miserable, pain and suffering to many families, innocent
    human being and to this world because he disinformation about the severity of virus and cover it up and lied to whole country in front of everyone. If you think he can protect this country & YOU? Think hard and think deep again, he cannot even protect himself, he can protect you?
    Did you see this big liar clown walking out to his ride while wearing mask? Did you remember what he did to mock the former VP Biden about wearing his mask?
    Biden running the WH office for 47 years without getting the virus, you got the virus for just running it for around 47 months?
    They discard for human life, they already knew that someone got virus positively and did not take immediately action for self isolation & quarantine, instead they still went ahead to have this rally campaign, fundraising gathering later with no mask no social distance etc, an very irresponsible & disgraceful human being.
    didn’t he take the medicine/drug he recommended people who had this virus to take it? ” what do you got to lose? ” he said confidently. I am the most watched covid19 patient they’ve ever seen. 210k innocent PEOPLE have died, million and million of people have lost thier job, economic is in depression, Thousand might be million of retailers , restaurants going under, all under this big liar clown watch.
    what more you can say? WH is more dangerous than a war zone!!! Journalist said enter at your own risk!He has failed the nation , fail the people who once proud of themself in freedom, democracy, integrity, excellency in everything everywhere.

    • ❤❤️ Help for coronavirus until end of pandemic. Thoughts and prayer improve health.

      Meditation, Prayer and Spiritual Healing: The Evidence

      From NCBI https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC3396089

      Speak quietly out loud or in normal voice “God, please make my

      health perfect and eliminate harmful virus. Thank you.” Repeat every 1-2 hours (8-16 times a day) as long as the pandemic lasts and until a safe vaccine or cure is available. God is love. This helps. No cost. “A problem exists today regarding some know how to call on God for help while others do not. This loving help is available to all of us regardless of moral character, religious views, and personal beliefs. God does not punish and helps anyone asking correctly. God is love.” https://www.howtocallongodforhelp.com

      Social distancing helps prevent infected droplets, splatter, and aerosol particles from entering the lungs and eyes. Reducing viral concentration will give the body better odds at handling infection. First line workers are at high risk because of continuous exposure to the virus, thus greater susceptibility to Covid19. Fever, cough, shortness of breath, and sudden loss of smell and taste are common characteristics of the coronavirus.

      Covid19’s cytokine storm can cause long term tissue and organ damage and mental health problems.

      From Mayo Clinic https://www.mayoclinic.org/diseases-conditions/coronavirus/in-depth/coronavirus-long-term-effects/art-20490351

      Masks, face shields, washinghands and disinfecting surfaces prevent spread of this virus. Look into foods high in Vitamin C (avoid harmful synthetic Vitamin C supplements), Vitamin D (20 minutes daily sunlight or Vitamin D supplement with Vitamin K2 to prevent calcification), and zinc.


      Please share. Thank you.❤️

    Dr Fauci is the real expert in his field not “Dr” Trump

    • Dr Fauci is the real expert in his field not “Dr” Trump 😍🌹💌💛💗👌💋

    • 😆 liberals are by far the most naive and unintelligent people I’ve ever seen.

    • Dr Fauchi hasn’t examined or treated one Covid CASE PERIOD! The wisest thing Fauchi just said was “I don’t know”!! I wish some MSM, CNN, MSNBC, FOX, etc. would ask Fauchi ,what are the costs or consequences of these Democrat ruined Cities extending lock downs. Do the deaths and harm from ABUSE, SUICIDE,METAL HEALTH, POVERTY,CRIME. missed TREATMENTS or missed DIAGNOSIS outweigh the NOW minimal risk of dying WITH Covid?

    • @Pam Deshane
      Fauci is an expert in infectious diseases, not societal tradeoffs. But he has repeatedly said he wants us to get as much of our lives back as possible whiles still using the common sense safety recommendations. There are very few places with very strict “lockdowns” right now.

  9. If tRUmp got a cure, they better start passing that out to everyone ASAP or I call bs!

  10. Alex Mitchell | October 8, 2020 at 4:20 PM | Reply

    I”m surprised that Fauci didn’t mention that there is also an effective vaccination against the seasonal flu. That greatly reduces its mortality. At least for those of us wise enough to avail ourselves of it.

    • ALEX,
      YOUR V.P. IS LORD OF THE FLIES- just read the book! Unless, you don’t read, just like RUMP!

    • Alex Mitchell | October 8, 2020 at 6:06 PM | Reply

      @Jill Clement What does pointing out something that makes flu less deadly than Covid-19, have to do with your irrational comment? Perhaps you need to work on YOUR reading comprehension.

    I don’t like presidents that keeps refuting the most knowledgeable expert on immunization!!

  12. I hate that 7-8 months into this thing, we still have to ask Dr. Fauci to combat the silly narrative of “its just like the flu”. Our stupid stubbornness and arrogance is why we have 7.5 million + cases and massive unemployment. God help us.

    Trump doesn’t care if he kills kids by giving fake information to parents.
    With Trump, no lives matter, except his.

  14. Everybody knows it is more serious than the flu. The right wing just denies it for political reasons.

  15. Susan Cruisin | October 8, 2020 at 4:33 PM | Reply

    Let’s see who will you believe, Dr. FAUCI OR Dr. COVIDIOT? I believe in the real doctor not the shifty liar.

  16. Is going to be in the history books. Trump incompetence and ignorance mishandling covid-19. The USA have the most deaths and infections than any other country.

  17. If you’re taking medical advice from the ‘roided up Commander in Bleach, well, that’s on you. 😅😂🤣

    Please, please everyone needs to vote. We must kick the GOPs out of Office. The Republicans have betrayed us and have no moral fibre to stand up to the gangster who is our President.

    the most striking thing that could happen, is that tRump has a relapse with covid, would be like the drop that overflows the pot full of water

    Every republican president has given a recession but this takes the cake 🤕
