So the nightmare continues.

“You don’t make the timeline, the virus makes the timeline.” (Dr. Anthony Fauci)

“Nearly all men can stand adversity, but if you want to test a man’s character, give him power.”– (Abraham Lincoln)

“The wicked persecute the good with the blindness of the passion that animates them, while the good pursue the wicked with a wise discretion” (Saint Augustine)

Against Moloch, against Moloch in these times,  against all of the exacerbating, singularly malevolent forces:

“Moloch the incomprehensible prison! Moloch the crossbone soulless jailhouse and Congress of sorrows! Moloch whose buildings are judgment! Moloch the vast stone of war! Moloch the stunned governments!
Moloch whose mind is pure machinery! Moloch whose blood is running money! Moloch whose fingers are ten armies! Moloch whose breast is a cannibal dynamo! Moloch whose ear is a smoking tomb!
Moloch whose eyes are a thousand blind windows!..”

Moloch, the bloodthirsty sacrificial Canaanite deity feeding on the human sacrifice
