    1. When things were at their very worst:
      2 Suns, Cross in the sky, 2 comets will collide = don`t be afraid – repent, accept Lord`s Hand of Mercy.
      The first sign – the Earth will spin faster.
      The second sign concerns the sun, which will loom larger, brighter and begin to spin.
      Scientists will say it was a global illusion.
      Beaware – Jesus will never walk in flesh again.
      After WW3 – rise of the “ man of peace“ from the East = Antichrist – the most powerful, popular, charismatic and influential leader of all time. Many miracles will be attributed to him. He will imitate Jesus in every conceivable way.
      Don`t trust „pope“ Francis = the False Prophet
      – will seem to rise from the dead
      – will unite all Christian Churches and all Religions as one.
      One World Religion = the seat of the Antichrist.
      Benedict XVI is the last true pope – will be accused of a crime of which he is totally innocent.

      – banking collapse was deliberately masterminded by the Antichrist

      – Antichrist will step in and create a false peace in the state of Israel by joining them with palestine in an unlikely alliance.

      – „He will recite extracts from My Teachings, which he will passionately proclaim from every secular stage in the world, until people sit up and take notice of him.“

    2. @lemurian chick No, but I suspect you are given the fact you brought it up! Don’t you have some planning to do? I hear the 4th and 5th are big days for you nuts! Seek some help!

    1. The weak minded, and religious nuts are cuckoo and easily manipulated..
      End of story.
      If you can’t do logical research yourself based on science, facts, proof and truth, and reality… This is what happens…

    2. @lemurian chick Let’s see which side you’re going to refer that comment too, after March 4th, when these people believe Trump is going to the White House, and remove Biden, and stay president.

    1. When I watch the news on any news channel I’m sceptical of all of them as they all have a political agenda, all cherry pick facts and they all lie. This scepticism is healthy but I don’t see much of that on here. You believe everything CNN tells you, so how does that make you any different from people who believe QAnon?

    2. @Ryan so you literally are saying you are ok with pedos,kid sniffers and war mongers nice

    1. @Richard Barry there’s a thing in the senate called the filibuster… that’s why you’re not getting any relief any time soon

    2. @Richard Barry really? Do you not know that Biden’s bill hasn’t been voted on in the senate?

  1. I don’t know who needs to hear this but stop saving all your money, invest some of it if you want financial freedom

    1. I have seen this ‘conversation’ a number of times now, it’s an advertising scheme for a dodgy business. Caveat Emptor.

    2. AET School foundation is providing free education meals n clothes to garbage picking children and special children in Lahore Pakistan. Can anyone support poor children.00923334555106

    3. @Doctor James It is a scam using a number of different screen names. Reporting it does no good, unfortunately. Lord knows I’ve tried. They are running a grift, and gullible people will fall for it and lose all of their money. “A fool and his money are soon parted.”

  2. I agree with Alisyn cohost, the question IS why were their willing to believe these outlandish claims to begin with. Yes, it was out there in social media but it has to start with them. Basically their belief system. Just listening to the QAnon conspiracy theories is ridiculous and outrageous. I just can’t wrap my brain around the ideas.. because their are so far out there, unbelievable. Just sad..

    1. So was Epstein’s Island a conspiracy theory or reality, dear? Why is Guislaine Maxwell in the clink? There are connections between these people and sex trafficking and you ain’t seen nothing yet.

    2. America is at a crossroads where the economy and consumer culture has failed a lot of people and mainstream religion is not fixing people’s lives (or the economic problems) and in waltzes conspiracy and cult beliefs. This happened in the 1970s too.

  3. My children at 7 years old could tell the difference between fact and bs. And be able to research things.

    1. These people had set beliefs prior to believing this nonsense, they are easily presuded into this stupidity.

    2. @Forest Walker at a very young age my kids used the computer to learn. Never went on “social media” sites. Crickey when the oldest was 7 his father needed a liver transplant and I would find him on the computer in the middle of the night trying to find out about artificial livers… The gullibility and lack of reason with these people astounds me.

    3. @C Higgins I get it I’m against sending hundreds of billions of dollars overseas .. both sides need to stop playing games.. no doubt about it.. they’re on the take both sides….and it’s absolutely Criminal how their playing the American people

    4. @Richard Barry I hear you. Money sent overseas isn’t altruistic. Usually in our interests. Meanwhile back at the ranch the Republicans have to stop being the party of no just to obstruct. The people are and have been in dire need for a long time. Not just the last month.

  4. I really don’t care what their excuse is, people have to look at the other side of the story, it seems like they were eating this stuff hook, line and sinker without thinking, is this really true??? If it’s got a national enquirer flavour to it, it’s more than likely not very believable but, when you let idiots tell you what you want to hear, that’s what you’ll gravitate to…wake up, oh and on another note…Trump lost!!!!

    1. @YUBO The Dominator yesterday in the middle of getting people’s names mixed up he said “what am I doing here?” He’s being protected by the same media who tried to catch out Trump at every opportunity.

    2. @YUBO The Dominator Trump isn’t far right, that’s a myth. Trump used to be a Democrat in fact. The day he announced he would be running against dear sweet Hillary the media branded him the next Hitler. Far right groups have rejected Trump, white nationalist leader Richard Spencer endorsed Biden for president.

    3. @Dog Poo Fairy that argument is dumb. Far right groups only started not liking trumps as soon as he backed down on all of his voter fraud claims. Before that he had literally all of the far right groups in his back pocket. He is a *self proclaimed* nationalist. One of the key parts of his campaign is a border wall on Mexico. He isn’t that much of a white supremacist but 100% does surround himslef with white supremacists. Do other republican presidents do all that?

  5. I understand FB had no regulation of this stuff, but tbh… whenever I see something on any social media platform I just double check it on google and it’s really not that hard… I learned about peer reviewed sources when I was like in 9th grade so if it doesn’t look official I won’t believe it LMAO soooo ..

    1. @Teresa Howick LITERALLY!! Thank you! Yes, even if I see something on CNN or MSNBC I will just go and look on google just to see if it is true, look at testimonies of the stakeholders involved or just searched it up at my local school library …. I really don’t understand how people don’t get this!! thank you Teresa!

    2. @Shelby Young ok but then what does “look official” to you. That’s the part that gets me. You think google is “Official”?

    3. @K F oh no! That’s a good question though, and I apologize if I came off rude with my response to Teresa. I use Ulrichsweb.com to determine if the journal is indicated as being peer-reviewed. I also look at an articles footnotes as well to see where they are getting there information from, whether it’s scholarly articles and stuff like that. Tbh, your right CNN is not the best source for everything, but I listen to them just for a starting point to hear what’s going on in the world and do my own research after to see the actual statistics behind there evidence!

  6. There’s big money in those algorithms aka data mines. I doubt the tech giants will voluntarily change anything, no matter how many countrymen fall into those rabbit holes.

  7. I love how dumb people say things like “Even if you are well educated, you could fall for this scam”. No. No well educated person believes in Q. They might have a degree of some kind, but if your education did not include the most basic critical thinking, you are not well educated. Responding automatically to stimuli is what amoebas do. Try to be one notch above that.

    1. @bradmoron I once felt the same as you, I wrote these people off as idiots too at one time but I would like to share with you a little story that made me see how deceptive and nefarious conspiracy circuits like Q anon can be. I had to cut a friend off in 2020 because she became a Q-nut! The bizarre thing about it is how she was a hard leaning democrat and feminist before her transformation. She absolutely hated trump and wouldn’t shut up about him the first year he was elected. We parted ways for about 9 months and I heard back from her in August 2020. All the sudden she thinks trump is gonna save everybody from the demoRATs! She actually used their lingo and I was shocked at the dramatic change. How can someone go from being a hardline lefty to seeing a racist autocrat as a savior? What changed? The pandemic. She got sucked into Qanon out of fear of the pandemic and Q played on that fear completely compromised her core values. That’s how cults like this work they don’t just rely on cognitive dissonance, they create it. Remember what the Capitol officer said about the rioters during an interview with CNN? He said the rioters were telling us they are with us and support us but then were beating us… He said it was the cognitive dissonance that really took him aback. Cults are dangerous they don’t just prey on the stupid, they prey on the vulnerable.

    2. I have to agree. You can be well-credentialed but still be woefully uneducated. Find me a philosophy major who is into QAnon, I dare you.

    3. @Black Thorn Romeo She is a zealot. Zealots are easily manipulated, because they are always 100% for or against something. Binary thinking is a sign of a lack of intelligence, since there is no understanding of nuance. She fell off the Democratic donkey on the road to Dumbasscus.

    4. ​@John L So explain how it is that intelligent people are more prone to mental illnesses, personality disorders, depression and suicidal ideation than less intelligent people? Intelligence simply isn’t the only safeguard against falling prey to a cult if you are looking for something, anything to save you from pain and powerlessness.

    5. @Donna B. being depressed and falling for a cult couldn’t be more different psychologically. Depression is a result of internally reinforcing your own negative thoughts, whereas falling into a cult is allowing someone else to implant their thoughts into your thoughts. Anybody could fall prey to negativity. Only dumb people let other people force thoughts on them without critically thinking about them, because dumb people don’t think critically. If they did, they wouldn’t be in the cult.

    1. @Alexander Acosta And those people can be logically taught to value other people’s opinions and there’s no communist party in America so it doesn’t matter anyway. But what do we do about the people who just ignore facts? They can’t be taught. Atheists communists weren’t the ones storming the capitol and killing cops because of Q. That was the Christian Republicans.

    2. @John L there’s a reason why stupid conservatives are reacting this way. Because for the last 100 years these atheist communists have killed 300 million people and more are counted. And their pre installation methods are very similar to what democrats and their investors are doing. Apply disinformation and apply propaganda, unfortunately both sides are doing this. There is a a huge ambiguity in the reaction of being paranoid and awareness due to fear.

    3. @2020 election Was a fraud there is fear. The fear of communism. That’s more real than Q.

    4. @Alexander Acosta Not just communism. They’re afraid of socialized medicine (although they’ll gladly accept medicare), they’re afraid of government assistance (although they’ll gladly accept unemployment checks, disability, foodstamps, and tax cuts for the rich that their buddy Trump passed). Basically they’re afraid of anything that helps people other than themselves.

    1. Yeah, these people were all paid by CNN dummy. No one actually follows this crap. I love how Liberals are the only ones talking about Qanon

    1. @Will trabazo Yes. He is talking about Soros talking points. He’s a paid shill. Probably ANTIFA or CIA or Blackwater. Very sad. He doesn’t seem to get that life is relatively short and being a pathological liar for $$$$ is a wretched way to go through life.

  8. Stop thinking there is some secret, insider knowledge. This is the same foundational basis for Scientology and Mormanism. It’s all based on secret knowledge- it’s pure crap. If you need the insight on the world, study science- ah, but that’s hard…

    1. That is why so many people call it a cult. I completely agree. I went to a mormon church when I was a child. They did not like me though. When I was in 2nd grade I told my sunday school teacher greek mythology was just like what they were teaching. She started to leave me in an empty class room so I wouldn’t infect the other children. They call it shunning. It didn’t work. My mormon family don’t communicate with me any more. The last time I was around them they were angry I didn’t do what they wanted and two of my uncles got robbed after I tried to warn them about how they would be and they ignored me. They probably think I’m a witch or something after predicting it even though it was based on cause and effect and they just had to make small changes to avoid it but that would have meant taking my advice and that was too much for their precious egos to bear. At least one of my uncles listen to me after the fact but if he didn’t he would have missed the boat and been left behind in a foreign country and that terrified him. They are too controling and gullibe. Total cult.

    2. @Mike Hunt Thanks for sharing. I hear you. I know plenty of families who have been driven apart because of how insane this and the Republican party in general has become like a cult. I just don’t understand why people think there is some hidden secret truth out there that separates them from anyone else. It’s like back story in some cheap Michael Bay movie.
