In “The Bridge,” Remnick tells how Obama first visits his friends Hamid and Chandoo in Pakistan during Ramadan “and then to Indonesia to see his mother and Maya,” a three week trip in all. In 1981, Ramadan began on July 3 and ran for a lunar month.
In most countries, the existence of a credit system isn't controversial. Past financial information is used to predict whether individuals will pay their mortgages or credit card bill in the future. But China is taking the whole concept a few steps further. The Chinese government is building an omnipotent "social credit" system that is meant to rate each citizen's trustworthiness. By 2020, everyone in China will be enrolled in a vast national database that compiles fiscal and government information, including minor traffic violations, and distils it into a single number ranking each citizen.

In other words the more time goes , the less likely anything comes out of this besides BS rhetoric between the two parties.
...without knowing the traditions of Reconciliation, Reintegration and Regeneration the manifestos will be read out of context. There are enough old German authors stating that Pansophy is the Hermetic twin of Theosophy. This means that the initiatory legends described by Boehme were mirrored in the manifestos in the story of Christian Rosenkreuz.
The Tarot cards are female, and Sophanic, like the mysticism of Boehme. The Universe card shows that polarities have been split in the form of the two wands in the female figure’s hands. But in the next card you see a female in Temperance, who unites the opposites in an alchemical vessel. She takes what was separate before, and pours out two vessels into the greater one for union.
What are those polarities? And why are the separate and now being recombined? Alchemy calls this ‘Solve et Coagula’ which means ‘divide and recombine’ or rather ‘separate – purify – recombine.’ Paracelsus said this was the means of producing the Philosophers Stone. The Hermeticists depicted these polarities as the Lunar Queen and Solar King of alchemy. The Hermetic tablet also reads ‘It’s mother is the moon and its father the sun’ in leading towards the great miracle of Mercury.
But after combining the polarities in alchemy you arrive to Tiphareth, the sphere of harmony and the sun. It is quite clear that the tomb of Christian Rosenkreuz belongs to this sphere, for in many rituals Christian Rosenkreuz and Osiris come together as a unified mystery. What’s more the Mercury of the alchemist was distilled in a vessel called the Pelican, and this bird is a symbol for the Rose Croix.
You see how all this ties together so far. But Jacob Boehme’s mysticism is more explicit. Adam has fallen and broken into two polarities, by reconciling these two polarities WITHIN US we achieve the mystical state of what he termed the ‘Second Adam’ which again mirrors C.R.C in his tomb.
The sulfur of alchemy must now be wedded to the Mercury in order to create the Philosophers Stone. Boehme outright tells us that ‘Sophia is the Sulfur’ clearly showing he knew of these associations between mysticism and alchemy. Once we attain this Virgin he said we could then give birth to Christ within. How does this tie into the manifestos though?
Well, you see the Chemical Wedding is the next great advent and revelation of initiation. Where Boehme’s Theosophy presented a pure Christian mysticism our Rosicrucian forefathers presented the same mystery using Hermetic imagery. The Fama therefore shows the mystical Second Adam of initiation, and the Chemical Wedding presents us with Sophia in the form of Venus. Both of these are phases of initiation and a level of awakening on the Tree of Life.

You brought up that the ‘most popular photo of hiim’ shows a full beard.
Not sure what your point is if you really have one.
The point is that if Q really meant that person and wanted you to find him fast he could have posted "Think full beard", instead he seemed to have pulled something out of his nether regions.
Your post may have been relevant if I had posted a photo of him with a full beard.
My post is relevant because there doesn't seem to be one without facial hair.
