  1. Waiting for #youngpharoah to comment on the “hate in their eyes!” What else other than “hate” is to explain this level of brutality? Fascinatingly, most of the outspoken stay silent when it strays from their tired rhetoric and doesn’t fit into their skewed narrative.

    • I replied with facts but a moderator erased my message which is strange because it wasn’t disrespectful…anyways not everyone can be saved…you will see Nibiru is near
      And the age is Aquarius which means we just left pisces which was the age of illusion now we are in the informational age and the age of unity ….. Google it it won’t be long for my people you can bet astrology on that….my PEOPLE are last but we will soon be first. #young pharoah.

        • You must be of Masonic origin because I give you facts and you reply with foolishness just study it and see if you can dispute my facts…. Google is your friend… that is all- i try to engage with you respectfully but you provide no factz….also google Norman bergun nasa….# young pharoah

          • It’s Bergrun….and he’s a nut. What you deem facts, others see as just fringe theories. Remember; we see what we want to see. And now, I must get to “traveling” … I’ve got to Google MORE LIGHT.

          • Correct it is Bergrun but prove he is a nut… I’ll wait and I have more proof in fact they are all nuts by the way the more light comment are you of Masonic Origin????????you didnt answer and remember let our yes mean yes and our no mean no.# young pharoah Ghaza light

          • I don’t have to prove he’s a nut as he certainly does a thorough job of it himself. You see, if you just allow most to continue rambling on or trying to prove their theories or beliefs due to their own mental weaknesses, the proof will eventually be established. Never been a fan of “followers” … of anything. Too easy to fool and rule. Pontificate on.
