My Storyboard Spiritual Visual Interpretation Of What This Full Moon In Aquarius On Thursday, August 15th Is Ushering In For Us. ๐Ÿ’–

The pictures and gifs that I share sum up my visual interpretation of the current astrological message.

I feel the need to provide a little guidance. I would like to emphasize the need for you not to place importance on the genders in the images I share. I'm sharing from my female perspective, my spiritual lens. For instance if you're a male, switch the female image walking over the bridge to be you as a male image walking over the bridge. It could very well mean someone else walking over that bridge in your situation or it can also mean a situation walking over the bridge. The last two images at the bottom don't necessarily have to mean love and romance. The two images can mean a partnership or agreement has been reached harmoniously, a commitment to a job that you love, a gap has been bridged, and a contract has been sealed. Whatever the case is for you, it's all divinely ordained.

What message can you see in these images that applies to your life?

Today a thrilling Full Moon awakened a new path towards love.

With the Sun in Leo at 22° exactly conjunct Venus, planet of love, at 22° Leo, the sign of romance, both opposite the Moon at 22° in Aquarius, sign of the future – love is taking on a new meaning…

Love from a higher plane.

Love that honors YOU at a deeper level than ever before.

The you that feels intimately in tune with the Divine.

22 is the master number of peace.

Two 2s, each representing connection, intimacy, relationship, coming together to remind you about the special path you are on:
  • 22: Your intimate relationship to the Earth plane is deeply connected to your connection to Source – through your intuition.
  • The divine made visible (physical – Earth) joining the invisible hand of God.
This is the inner Peace forged in a NEW way.

Practical, real, Earth-centered and divine, mystical, timeless – hand in hand walking together as ONE.

Loving has taken on a meaning that transcends human compassion.

Now you are consciously feeling your devotion to the Divine.

Truly, the most intimate, loving communication is with Nature and to your Heart.

A sweetness fills your whole being when you nurture your relationship to Mother Earth. Inner peace is also found when you listen to the song in your heart.

Love is the fiber with which you weave your words, and Light makes the fibers visible and conscious.

What you focus on today will instill your whole being with tremendous appreciation and gratitude.

2 is an invitation to be intimately engaged with your true feelings.

2 invites you to be open, vulnerable, receptive…
  • In this case, the full moon in Aquarius glows with opportunities to get in touch with New Pathways of Love.
Whatever is appearing in your life is nudging you (most likely unexpectedly) to come to the edge…

You are opting to explore a new route.

It could be being totally honest about what worries you – and thereby stilling your fears.

It could be a new willingness to share more of your true essence with others – calmly, lovingly, with care.

Or it could be to create boundaries – to help your dreams come true.

Whatever it is, Aquarius seeks breakthroughs.
  • What is appearing in your life to nudge you towards liberation?
  • What is shifting in your life (Aquarius) in order for you to move full steam ahead into Loving Leadership (Leo)?
Pay close attention to commitments and people that are not vibrationally aligned to love, nurturing, liberation. They may be projecting their stuff onto you (unconsciously) and it is dragging you down. Watch the signs.

22 and 20 and 15 seek calm, peace, happiness – healing.

Just be totally honest and address what appears.

Never be fearful. Just address what has appeared and requires your attention. In addressing it without judgment, you alchemize the energy into Love.

Your inner temple is your guide. Listen, honor and trust.

Be confident in your ability to be divinely guided at ALL times.

Have a beautiful Full Moon!

Love and Blessings,
Tania Gabrielle

The Full Moon is Thursday, August 15 at 6:29 AM Mountain Daylight Time.

This is a good day for balance and choice. You can find yourself either in the basement with no windows but a sense of familiarity and security, OR you can go to up to the penthouse where you are more exposed and vulnerable but the view is way better. So if you find yourself in the “dumps” and feeling gloomy, unworthy, out of sorts with yourself and others, overburdened with responsibilities that are not yours, evaluate your life to see what you need. It is important not to get into the blame game as that never leads to the penthouse. Set some new intentions for yourself today as well as new or different boundaries if necessary.

This is also a very social time but choose carefully who you are around. The container of this full moon is excellent for dreaming big, new and different. Share some inspiration with others. What do you want your life to look like in a year? In five years? What if?

Sun in Leo ~ Moon in Aquarius 22ยบ
6:29 AM Mountain Daylight Time

Once again Venus is aligned with the Sun – exactly! How fortunate we are. Sociability is high, social skills and aesthetics are valued, personal magnetism is strong. Venus is actually merged with the Sun at this time as she makes her underworld journey from morning star to evening star reappearing again in late September near Equinox in the sign of Libra. Venus and Mars are both making their underworld journeys ~ how intimate. They will approach in Leo, meet and join in Virgo, and then reappear in Libra ~ Venus as evening star and Mars as morning star.

Aquarius Moon in its fullness is a cry for freedom. Not the kind of freedom to do anything we want, but the freedom to be just who we are without judgment and restrictions, to express our unique non-conforming selves. More than that, we need to be free of our old belief systems so we can live in the free zone of ‘not knowing’. In that paradox zone, where we are open, but have no idea how, when or where life will unfold, is freedom. This requires a great deal of faith in quantum creativity, and is required for the shifts in consciousness we are called on to make at this time.

As the power sign of the element of air, Aquarius is rational, fair-minded, inventive and unconventional. It’s that Uranus ruler that can link them to higher frequency forms of creating and manifesting, and they are frequently brilliant and intuitively connected. They have a natural trust that because they create for the good of all with humanitarian motives that the quantum field will support them ~ and it does! Aquarius is an agent of social change and is progressive in outlook, generous and philanthropic as well, but the negative pole is often played out by the ‘rebel without a cause’ or the fanatically minded who like to tear down what exists or block change without offering constructive alternatives. There are Aquarians ruled by Saturn, the traditional ruler, and those ruled by Uranus, the modern ruler.

The Leo/Sun develops the unique, personal ego of each one, but it’s only preparation for the more transpersonal partner in this axis, Aquarius, that dedicates that ego to serving the group, the collective or an ideal. You might consider this Full Moon as a prelude to what begins in 2020, which is a shift in emphasis from planets in Capricorn to planets in Aquarius. Saturn moves into Aquarius March 2020, Jupiter moves in December 2020, and Pluto moves in January 2024.

The Leo cycle is here to remind us to love large and have the courage to live from the heart. Create and be generous with your inner light. Be a love machine, a poet – as Uranus squares Mercury (fully moving forward now at Full Moon) you might surprise yourself at your inspired voice. Luckily we have Chiron trining Mercury in fire signs so we’re supported to use our thoughts and words for passion and enthusiasm rather than enflaming drama and ego.

Remember what the Maharishi said in his final days to his followers: ‘the purpose of Life is to bring God Joy!’ – just what Leo has in mind for us.

USA: Democrat Presidential Candidates Elizabeth Warren and Kamala Harris Lied About Ferguson. They Both Tweeted That Michael Brown Was Murdered. Hand's Up, Don't Shoot Was A LIE.

National Review
written by Christopher Tremoglie
Saturday August 10, 2019

Democratic presidential candidate Elizabeth Warren yesterday tweeted:
This is an outright lie, one day after Warren complained of the dangers of rhetoric.

Michael Brown was not murdered. Michael Brown was shot by officer Darren Wilson in an act of self-defense. This is why the grand jury declined to indict Wilson for murder or manslaughter, and it was also the conclusion of the Obama administration’s Department of Justice.

“Every police officer in America should be offended by Sen. Warren’s ill-informed, inflammatory tweet today,” Jeff Roorda of the St. Louis Police Officers Association told me via email. “Holding a would-be cop killer out as some sort of victim or worse yet, a hero, does no justice to the truth or to reconciliation. Her careless words disqualify her from fitness to serve impartially as commander-in-chief.”

“I was a Democratic Missouri State Representative for 8 years,” Roorda also wrote. “But, I’m sick of uninformed members of my party attacking cops. It’s just wrong.”

Attempts to contact Senator Warren’s campaign by phone and email were not returned.
National Review

Their falsehoods were immoral, divisive, and quite possibly unlawful.

On Friday afternoon, two of the leading contenders in the Democratic presidential primary lied. There’s no other fair way to put it. They flat-out spread fiction, libeled an innocent man, and stoked American divisions — all for political gain.

Five years ago, a Ferguson, Mo., police officer named Darren Wilson shot a young black man named Michael Brown to death after an altercation in the street. False rumors about Brown’s death — namely that he was shot in cold blood while trying to surrender with his hands in the air — ignited violent protests in Missouri and revulsion across the United States.

“Hands up, don’t shoot” became a national rallying cry — until the Obama Department of Justice comprehensively and thoroughly debunked it in a lengthy report published on March 4, 2015. Writing in December of the same year, the Washington Post’s Glenn Kessler called the slogan one of “the biggest Pinocchios of the year.”

But Kamala Harris and Elizabeth Warren ignored the Obama DOJ. They blew straight through the facts of the case and published these accusations:
To demonstrate just how preposterous it is to accuse Wilson of murder, it’s worth revisiting the actual facts of the case, according to the best evidence available to the investigators. On August 9, 2014, Michael Brown and a friend were walking in the middle of the street shortly after Brown had stolen cigarillos from a local market and shoved away the store clerk when he tried to intervene.

When Wilson first spotted Brown and his friend, he told them to walk on the sidewalk. He then realized that they matched the description of the theft suspects and blocked their path with his vehicle.

Wilson tried to open his door, but it either bounced off Brown or Brown slammed it shut. Brown then reached into the vehicle and started punching Wilson. As Wilson fended off the blows, he reached for his gun. Brown allegedly tried to take the gun from Wilson, and Wilson managed to get a shot off, injuring Brown in the hand. Eyewitnesses corroborated Wilson’s claims that Brown was reaching in the car, and these claims were further corroborated by “bruising on Wilson’s jaw and scratches on his neck, the presence of Brown’s DNA on Wilson’s collar, shirt, and pants, and Wilson’s DNA on Brown’s palm.”

Brown then started to run away. After a brief pause Wilson pursued, ordering Brown to stop. Brown then turned back to Wilson and started running toward him. According to the report, “several witnesses stated that Brown appeared to pose a physical threat to Wilson as he moved toward Wilson.” Wilson fired again, striking Brown several times, yet Brown kept moving toward Wilson until the final shot hit him in the head, killing him.

The report’s conclusion was crystal clear:
Given that Wilson’s account is corroborated by physical evidence and that his perception of a threat posed by Brown is corroborated by other eyewitnesses, to include aspects of the testimony of [Brown’s friend], there is no credible evidence that Wilson willfully shot Brown as he was attempting to surrender or was otherwise not posing a threat. [Emphasis added.]
The report flatly declared that Wilson “did not act with the requisite criminal intent.”

“No credible evidence” is a powerful statement, but if you read the report, it’s a powerful statement based not just on extensive forensic evidence but also on the courageous testimony of witnesses who feared reprisal for speaking the truth. One witness, a 58-year-old black male, told prosecutors that there were signs in the neighborhood that said “Snitches get stitches.” Yet he spoke the truth anyway. Other witnesses overcame their fears and spoke the truth.

How do we have confidence that they spoke the truth? Because, as the report notes, their statements “have been materially consistent, are consistent with the physical evidence, and . . . are mutually corroborative.”

To be sure, there were other witnesses. Some neither incriminated him nor fully corroborated him. And there was an entire category of witnesses whose accounts were “inconsistent with the physical and forensic evidence,” the report noted, adding:
Some of those accounts are materially inconsistent with that witness’s own prior statements with no explanation, credible [or] otherwise, as to why those accounts changed over time. Certain other witnesses who originally stated Brown had his hands up in surrender recanted their original accounts, admitting that they did not witness the shooting or parts of it, despite what they initially reported either to federal or local law enforcement or to the media.
There are few more fraught issues in American public life than the question of police shootings — especially police shootings of black men. I’ve written about the issue time and time again and have come to believe not only that too many American police officers resort to deadly force too quickly but also that there is an unacceptable pro-police bias in our criminal-justice system. There is also evidence that race plays a more malignant role in policing than many of us hoped.

Indeed, while we must of course remember the DOJ’s report exonerating Darren Wilson, we should also remember that there was a second DOJ report in 2015 that found systematic misconduct at the Ferguson Police Department, misconduct that disproportionately affected Ferguson’s black citizens. I urge you to read both reports, and if you read the second report with an open mind, you’ll almost certainly come to believe that Ferguson’s black residents possessed legitimate grievances against their police department.

That’s the complicated nation we inhabit, but the complexity does not mean there aren’t simple obligations that attach to every politician, activist, and member of the media. And the simplest of those obligations is a commitment to the truth. We know that lies and falsehoods can cause riots. They can cause city blocks to burn. They can destroy a man’s life. At the very least, they can further embitter an already toxic public discourse. When issues are most fraught, the obligation of courageous, honest leadership is most imperative.

But Warren and Harris’s failure is more than a failure of leadership. The publication of a false accusation of a crime like murder is libelous under American law. In other words, their lies may well have been illegal. Democrats — especially Democrats who seek to address the very real challenges surrounding police violence in the United States — should demand better. Harris and Warren should do better. They should correct and retract their false statements. There is no excuse for their inflammatory lies.

USA: Democrat Rep. Joaquin Castro (TX) Posted Names Of Trump Donors In His District, A Hit List, And Included Where They Work To Make People “Think Twice” About Supporting The President.

The Daily Caller
written by Peter Hasson, Senior Reporter
Tuesday August 6, 2019

Democratic Texas Rep. Joaquin Castro on Monday tweeted the names and employers of 44 San Antonio residents who donated the federal maximum to President Donald Trump’s reelection campaign.

Castro, whose district includes much of San Antonio, claimed the donors “are fueling a campaign of hate that labels Hispanic immigrants as ‘invaders.'” Castro is the twin brother of Democratic presidential candidate Julian Castro and chairs his presidential campaign.
“Sad to see so many San Antonians as 2019 maximum donors to Donald Trump,” the congressman wrote, proceeding to name local businesses whose owners gave the maximum to Trump’s campaign. Eleven of the 44 donors shown in Rep. Castro’s post listed their employment as “retired.”

Trump campaign communications director Tim Murtaugh is demanding Castro delete the post.

“Democrats want to talk about inciting violence? This naming of private citizens and their employers is reckless and irresponsible. He is endangering the safety of people he is supposed to be representing,” Murtaugh told the Daily Caller News Foundation.

“No one should be targeted for exercising their First Amendment rights or for their political beliefs. He should delete the tweet, apologize, and his brother’s campaign should disavow it,” Murtaugh continued.

Murtaugh added that the campaign reported Castro’s tweet to Twitter for “targeted harassment.”

House Minority Whip Steve Scalise was harshly critical of Rep. Castro as well, warning the Democratic congressman: “This isn’t a game. It’s dangerous, and lives are at stake. I know this firsthand.”

The names and employers of campaign donors are publicly available in Federal Election Commission (FEC) filings, but publishing lists of opposing donors in the area and their places of employment, is outside the norm for members of the House of Representatives.

Neither Castro’s presidential campaign nor Rep. Castro’s congressional office returned requests for comment.

Castro later doubled down on his decision to publish the list, comparing it to media coverage of large campaign donors.

In attempting to embarrass constituents who donated to President Trump, Texas congressman Joaquin Castro appears to have overlooked the fact that six of those he named also gave cash to him and his twin brother, 2020 Democrat Juliรกn Castro.

Joaquin Castro on Monday drew a torrent of criticism when the Twitter account operated by his reelection campaign listed 44 residents of San Antonio who donated the maximum amount to President Trump's campaign for reelection so far this year.

"Sad to see so many San Antonians as 2019 maximum donors to Donald Trump — the owner of ⁦@BillMillerBarBQ⁩, owner of the ⁦@HistoricPearl, realtor Phyllis Browning, etc⁩." the Monday tweet said. "Their contributions are fueling a campaign of hate that labels Hispanic immigrants as 'invaders.'"

Rep. Joaquin Castro and Juliรกn Castro, a former Housing and Urban Development secretary, are outspoken Trump critics. The brothers, 44, regularly denounce Trump for his administration's immigration policies along the U.S.-Mexico border, and since this past weekend have laid blame on the president for the shootings in El Paso, Texas, which claimed 22 lives, and Dayton, Ohio, where nine were killed.

Joaquin Castro may be creating political liabilities for himself by alienating his own constituents and donor base, all in an effort to brand those very same political givers as effectively racist for backing Trump in 2020.

A Washington Examiner review of Federal Elections Committee filings found three individuals on the list who gave $5,600 to Trump, the maximum available by law for the primary and general election, and Joaquin Castro, a congressman from San Antonio who also leads the presidential campaign of his brother, a former San Antonio mayor.

Another three individuals on the list told the Washington Examiner that they supported Juliรกn Castro's mayoral campaigns. Juliรกn Castro served as San Antonio mayor from 2009 to 2014, before being tapped as HUD secretary for the final two-and-a-half years of President Barack Obama's administration.

The congressman's approach left many of the San Antonio-area Trump donors on the list who gave to the Castro brothers angered and hurt.

“It is just amazing to me that he would do that,” said William Greehey, a philanthropist and former CEO of Valero Energy, who donated $5,000 to Joaquin Castro’s congressional campaign in 2013, covering the primary and general elections.

“Then he's calling me a racist because I'm supporting Trump. I mean, this is just ridiculous.” said Greehey, who noted he started a $100 million homeless campus project that mostly serves Hispanic individuals. “There's a lot of things you don't like about the president and his tweeting, but here Castro is doing the same thing with his tweeting.”

Joaquin Castro did not respond to a request for comment through the presidential campaign of his brother, who, according to the RealClearPolitics polling average, languishes in the Democratic field with 1% support.

Edward Steves, owner of a manufacturing firm that he said is the oldest company in San Antonio, told the Washington Examiner that he once hosted a fundraiser at his house that raised over $300,000 for Juliรกn Castro’s mayoral campaign.

But Joaquin's tweet and follow-up statements chastising local Trump donors may backfire for his own reelection races, Steves said.

“He's probably got 44 people that are going to contribute heavily to whoever might run against him in the primaries,” Steves said.

Donald Kuyrkendall, president of a San Antonio commercial real estate company, shared concern about his family's safety and wondered what the Castro brothers hoped to gain by the Twitter outing of Trump donors.

“Were his intentions to incite people to picket Bill Miller's barbecue or to come to Don Kuyrkendall’s house, you know, assault my wife, make nasty comments?” Kuyrkendall said.

Kuyrkendall said that in wake of the tweet, his lawyer reminded him that he once donated to Juliรกn Castro's mayoral campaign.

“Life is short and this kind of silliness is not good for anybody, especially with the climate we have right now with two mass shootings in a weekend,” Kuyrkendall said. “There's just no reason to highlight individuals and their companies as being some kind of, I don't even know what he thinks we are, bad guys because we support Republicans?”

“I'm just hopeful that none of this gets serious and that my grandchildren and children will be not intimidated by this stuff,” Kuyrkendall said.

Wayne Harwell, who gave $1,000 Joaquin Castro in 2011, then a state representative who would win his House seat the next year, emphasized his enduring financial support for Trump.

“I sure will not give to Castro any more,” he said. “Trump has helped our country have economic prosperity. I support his efforts although I may not support each word, I like the results of his efforts for America.”

Ed Kelley, retired former president and CEO of USAA Real Estate, said that he supported Juliรกn Castro's mayoral campaign in the past and considers him a friend, though he does not know Joaquin that well. The tweet "did not leave a good taste in my mouth" and "was not something I appreciated," Kelley said.

Gregory Kowalski, another individual on the list who gave $1,421 to Joaquin Castro's campaign in 2011, did not respond to request for comment.

“Sickening.” “Dangerous.” “Pitiful.”

That’s how two retirees targeted by Democratic Texas Rep. Joaquin Castro described the congressman’s decision to publish the names of 44 Trump donors in San Antonio area. Both women spoke on condition of anonymity, citing fears of political violence and harassment.

In addition to posting the list of local Trump donors, Castro singled out two local businesses for their owners’ Trump donations, as well as a local realtor. “Their contributions are fueling a campaign of hate that labels Hispanic immigrants as ‘invaders,'” he wrote on Twitter.

“I think what he did is sickening. I think it’s disgusting,” one retiree, herself an immigrant, told the Daily Caller News Foundation in a phone interview.

“I’m a naturalized citizen, I love the United States of America, I think our president is doing an amazing job. He’s not a racist, I’m not a racist, and for them to be totally trying to be brainwash people, I think it’s just garbage. I think it’s just going to backfire on them, really,” she added.

The woman said Castro’s post shows “how overboard [Democrats] have gone.”

“It’s upside down, it’s like they’ve gone off the deep end, because a lot of my Democratic friends are not quite walking away yet, but they are so turned off by what’s going on. I don’t think they’re going to vote,” she said. “I don’t think they’ll vote for Trump, but they’re not going to vote for the Democrats.”

The second retiree, aged 79, said she was “shocked” when she found out Castro tweeted her name to his followers.

“I think it’s really pitiful, it shows what he is or what he believes in and what he does, so it’s really disappointing,” she said, adding that she wants Castro to apologize and delete his post.

“I’ve had several phone calls this morning and people who have not donated to Trump, have said they’re going to. This has made them decide. It’s backfiring,” she continued.

In addition to serving in Congress, Castro serves as the presidential campaign chairman for his twin brother, former Housing and Urban Development (HUD) Secretary Julian Castro.

Castro doubled and tripled down on his decision to publish the list.

He said on MSNBC Wednesday that he hopes Trump donors “think twice” before donating to the president’s re-election campaign, while adding that he “didn’t create the graphic.”

USA: CNN's Cuomo Threatens to Throw Trump Supporter Down Flight of Stairs Because He Called Him, 'Fredo'. Cuomo Said That Name Was An Ethnic Slur For Italians On Par With The "N-word". ๐Ÿ™„

Monday August 12, 2019

WARNING: This post contains VERY strong, explicit language.

In a YouTube video released on Monday by “independent media journalist” with the title “That’s the Point with Brandon,” CNN's Prime Time host Chris Cuomo can be seen threatening to throw a reported “Trump supporter” down some stairs. The incident appeared to be designed to get a rise out of Cuomo, but the CNN host completely blew up at a minor slight.

All told, Cuomo used the “F-word” roughly 25 times.

Before the video started rolling, the unidentified man apparently called Cuomo by the name “Fredo.” The name was a stinging nickname stemming from the disgraced Fredo Corleone character in The Godfather film. Over the years, it's been a favorite jab at him from people on the right. But according to Cuomo, it was an ethnic slur on par with the “N-word”.

As a second-generation Italian-American, this author has never heard “Fredo” used as an ethnic slur, let alone it being on the same level as the “N-word”. It's normally an insult meaning the person was the black sheep of the family, or the lesser in a family. In fact, since it’s short for “Alfredo,” it would be really strange for someone to name children an ethnic slur. That’s not to mention that people without Italian heritage name their kids Alfredo.

“But if you want to play then we’ll fucking play,” Cuomo angrily spat as things began to spiral. “Yeah, but you’re going to have a big fucking problem.”

Things then seemed like they were headed for a brawl with Cuomo threatened the guy with throwing him down the stairs (click “expand”):

“Take a swing. No, no. Come on boy. You want to call me shit, call me shit then. I’m right fucking here,” Cuomo continued to taunt. “I’ll fucking wreck your shit. I’ll fucking wreck your shit.” Seconds later, the argument was broken up.

The video went viral moments after it hit Twitter. Responding to a snarky tweet from Donald Trump Jr., CNN spokesperson Matt Dornic declared that the network completely supported Cuomo. “Chris Cuomo defended himself when he was verbally attacked with the use of an ethnic slur in an orchestrated setup. We completely support him,” he wrote.

In a follow-up tweet, Dornic took a swipe at Trump Jr.’s younger brother, tweeting: “Speaking of dumb brothers.... cc: @EricTrump”. Effectively demonstrating what kind of people CNN hire.

CNN legal analyst Elie Honig got in on the action and threw his support behind the raging Cuomo. “Somebody threw an ethnic slur at @ChrisCuomo. I defend every damn word he says here,” he tweeted. Again, Fredo was not an ethnic slur.

Speaking of Trump Jr., Cuomo had zero problems with CNN commentator and former Republican Ana Navarro referring to the President’s son as “Fredo” back in January. In fact, the Twitter account for his show promoted it.

And, for the record, Cuomo Prime Time is on hiatus this week with Cuomo on vacation, so there wasn't a chance for Cuomo to chime in.

The transcript is below, click "expand" to read. Again, there is very strong language used, so caution:
Sharing tweets below to show you how the Left twists this news to blame President Trump.
Sharing these tweets below because the Left are comparing a guy calling Chris Cuomo "Fredo" to Tucker Carlson being gang stalked and harassed at a restaurant and later the Resistance went to Tucker Carlson's home.

Antifa outside Tucker Carlson's house: 'we know where you sleep'.

Daily Mail published on Dec 17, 2018: About 20 activists from far-left group Smash Racism DC gathered outside the Fox News host's house on Wednesday night where they knocked on his door before chanting slogans. They included 'we will fight, we know where you sleep at night', 'racism scumbag, leave town', and 'no border, no wall, no USA at all'. The Metropolitan Police Department of F.C. cops received the call around 6.30 and responded 'within a few minutes'. The group dispersed after police arrived and no arrests were made. The protesters come from the same group as the one which targeted Ted Cruz and wife Heidi, hounding them out of Italian restaurant Fiola as they ate dinner back in September. An affiliated Twitter account Shut It Down DC tweeted out the addresses of Carlson, his brother Buckley, Sean Hannity, Ann Coulter, and Neil Patel on Wednesday evening following the protest. Twitter later removed those posts.

Learn More About Daniel the Prophet Who God Gave Understanding In All Visions And Dreams.

These lion murals once lined the streets of ancient Babylon, the city where Daniel the prophet spent much of his life. The murals are now on display in the Istanbul Archaeology Museums in Turkey that was established in 1891, and houses a collection of Greek, Roman and Byzantine artifacts. (photo by David Treybig).

[source: Life, Hope and Truth]

Who was Daniel the prophet? What can we learn about his personal life and the prophecies God revealed to him about the end times ahead of us now?

The biblical account of Daniel the prophet begins as he and other young men from Judah were taken captive by King Nebuchadnezzar of Babylon (Daniel 1:1-4) in approximately 604 B.C. This captivity of citizens of Judah in Babylon lasted for 70 years, as God had foretold through the prophet Jeremiah (Jeremiah 25:11).

During this time, Daniel served in prominent positions in the governments of several Babylonian and Medo-Persian rulers, including Nebuchadnezzar, Belshazzar, Darius and Cyrus. In the first year of the reign of Darius, Daniel came to understand, or simply reproved to himself, the prophecy of Jeremiah that predicted a 70-year captivity of his people (Daniel 9:1-2).

A faithful man of God

The book of Daniel shows him to be a faithful man of God. When King Nebuchadnezzar threatened to destroy all the wise men if one of them didn’t tell him his dream and interpret it, Daniel and his friends asked for time so he and his three friends could beseech God in prayer to reveal this information (Daniel 2:18). When God answered his prayer, Daniel remembered to praise and thank God for giving them what they had requested (verses 20-23).

Later, Daniel again demonstrated his faith by praying to God even though he knew that doing so would endanger his life! “Now when Daniel knew that the writing was signed [that no one could petition any god or man except the king for 30 days], he went home. And in his upper room, with his windows open toward Jerusalem, he knelt down on his knees three times that day, and prayed and gave thanks before his God, as was his custom since early days” (Daniel 6:10).

Daniel’s faithfulness to God landed him in a lion’s den, where his detractors were sure he would be devoured. But God sent an angel that “shut the lions’ mouths” (Daniel 6:22), and Daniel was miraculously spared.

On another occasion the record shows Daniel praying and fasting for his people’s sins and asking for God’s mercy on himself, his fellow captives and the inhabitants of Jerusalem (Daniel 9).

The record of Daniel’s righteous conduct is not confined to the book he authored. God, through the prophet Ezekiel, stated: “‘Even if these three men, Noah, Daniel, and Job, were in it, they would deliver only themselves by their righteousness,’ says the Lord GOD” (Ezekiel 14:14, emphasis added).

Knowledge, skill and understanding from God

God saw these fruits of Daniel and his three friends and gave them knowledge and skill in all literature and wisdom. To Daniel, God also gave understanding in all visions and dreams (Daniel 1:17). As a result of God’s blessings upon Daniel and his three friends, the king “found them ten times better than all the magicians and astrologers who were in all his realm” (verse 20).

When King Nebuchadnezzar had a dream that troubled him in the second year of his reign, God revealed the meaning of the dream to Daniel in a night vision (Daniel 2:19). “Then the king promoted Daniel and gave him many great gifts; and he made him ruler over the whole province of Babylon, and chief administrator over all the wise men of Babylon” (Daniel 2:48).

At times, God sent an angel to deliver prophetic messages to Daniel, who then copied them down.

“Then it happened, when I, Daniel, had seen the vision and was seeking the meaning, that suddenly there stood before me one having the appearance of a man. And I heard a man’s voice between the banks of the Ulai, who called, and said, ‘Gabriel, make this man understand the vision.’ So he came near where I stood, and when he came I was afraid and fell on my face; but he said to me, ‘Understand, son of man, that the vision refers to the time of the end’” (Daniel 8:15-17).

Additional accounts of an angel coming to Daniel are found in Daniel 9:20-23 and Daniel 10:5-14.

Daniel’s prophecies

Beloved and chosen by God to foretell future events, Daniel the prophet prophesied as moved by God through visions and dreams about what was going to happen throughout history, including what would happen to Daniel’s people in the “latter days” (Daniel 10:14) and to the whole world.

Here are a few of the prominent prophecies given by God through Daniel:
  • Four world-ruling empires. In a dream given to King Nebuchadnezzar, God revealed through Daniel that there would be four world-ruling empires (Daniel 2:1-43). Historically, these have proven to be the Babylonian, Medo-Persian, Greco-Macedonian and Roman Empires. Emphasizing the surety of this prophecy, God also gave Daniel a vision in which these empires were represented by four great beasts (Daniel 7:1-3).
  • The Kingdom of God. After telling King Nebuchadnezzar that there would be four world-ruling kingdoms, Daniel further prophesied: “And in the days of these kings [during the time of human government] the God of heaven will set up a kingdom which shall never be destroyed; and the kingdom shall not be left to other people; it shall break in pieces and consume all these kingdoms, and it shall stand forever” (Daniel 2:44).
In the repetition of the prophecy about human world-ruling empires, Daniel further noted: “I was watching in the night visions, and behold, One like the Son of Man, coming with the clouds of heaven! He came to the Ancient of Days, and they brought Him near before Him. Then to Him was given dominion and glory and a kingdom, that all peoples, nations, and languages should serve Him. His dominion is an everlasting dominion, which shall not pass away, and His kingdom the one which shall not be destroyed” (Daniel 7:13-14).

  • A little horn. In God’s vision to Daniel of four beasts, representing four world-ruling kingdoms, the fourth beast “had ten horns” (Daniel 7:7), which we have traditionally understood to represent 10 appearances of this fourth kingdom. Explaining what he had seen, Daniel wrote: “I was considering the horns, and there was another horn, a little one, coming up among them, before whom three of the first horns were plucked out by the roots. And there, in this horn, were eyes like the eyes of a man, and a mouth speaking pompous words” (verse 8).
This little horn that Daniel in vision saw “making war against the saints, and prevailing against them” (verse 21) is a religious power that will persecute God’s people at the end of this age (verses 24-25). Known by multiple names—the antichrist, the man of sin and the false prophet—this religious power will play a prominent role in the deception of mankind prior to Christ’s return. Additional references to this little horn are found in Daniel 8:9-12, 23-25.

  • The seventy-weeks prophecy. In Daniel 9:24-27 we find a prophecy that predicted the year—A.D. 27—that Jesus would begin His ministry. The prophecy also predicted that Jesus’ ministry to “confirm the covenant” would be cut off “in the middle” of the 70th prophetic week. The biblical record shows that this occurred after 3½ years, just as Daniel had prophesied.

  • Abomination of desolation. Chapter 11 covers prophecies that would be fulfilled from the time of the Medo-Persian Empire through the end time. After providing specific details regarding the successive kingdoms, we come to verse 31, where we read of daily sacrifices being taken away and of an “abomination of desolation” that would be placed in the temple. These events, which included a suppression of the truth and a defilement of the temple, took place during the time of the Maccabees and were a type of a future fulfillment that will occur before the return of Christ (Matthew 24:14-15).
For further study, see the article “Abomination of Desolation: What Is It?”
  • The time of the end. Beginning in Daniel 11:40, we read of events that will transpire “at the time of the end.” This includes conflict around Jerusalem between “the king of the North” and “the king of the South.” Before concluding his book, Daniel also refers to a severe “time of trouble” (Daniel 12:1), which is referred to as “great tribulation” in Matthew 24:21.
Daniel’s prophecies sealed

Even though Daniel prophesied during the early part of the sixth century B.C., his prophecies were sealed until the end time. Similar to the instruction he had received to “seal up” a vision he had been given earlier (Daniel 8:26), Daniel was again told, “But you, Daniel, shut up the words, and seal the book until the time of the end; many shall run to and fro, and knowledge shall increase” (Daniel 12:4).
