Macabenta In the heat of the contest for the official Republican candidate for the 2016 presidential election, Donald Trump boasted that he could shoot somebody in the middle of Manhattan and not lose a single vote. He subsequently went on to win in the primary and the presidency. In almost four years of his term, Trump has been vilified more than any other head of state that I am aware of.

By Philip S. Chua, MD. All of us today are at risk, more than we realize, more than ever before. Criminals, as expected, are taking advantage of modern technology to perpetrate their illegal acts more efficiently and discreetly.

So, let us first be clear that it is only an apparent mercurial retrograde movement because the astrological point of view is geocentric (around the Earth).
