    Explosives is all the are doing, wicked people playing God. It's so obvious because they can give you all the direction as it land like really and don't say it's satellites because all they show is CGI satellites. Why you can't see these satellites is the day? That's how they trick you what will hold up a satellites up in the skies where don't understand see not one when you are on a plane. I am amazed with the lack of knowledge in people. Why don't you get to use your phone in the Sky using your own service no wifi. Satellites are supposed to give you the best signal because you are closer to it. I am telling you reading book make you dumb. Long hours of research and breaking down all information makes you smart. Free Will means no one controls you but in this world money does. Get ready for digital it around the corner. Witchcraft can't save you all because them and all take the mRNA/RNA COVID 19 vaccine so they will cross you and every way being controlled by the elites. You watch all the movies showing you how they will get it done. Mitch was at the devil ritual meetings in Egypt and he came back with no idea of what's going to happen Wow. These are the people you want governing you no hope at all
