A.

Hi, I just wanted to say thank you for your watchers series as well as the messengers of deception! I watched you on Sid Roth and had wanted to watch your video’s for some time now, so i ordered them.  They really answered alot of questions I had about the many deceptions going on and how satan uses all these different people to push his agenda.  The way you teach about the new age and other deceptions makes it very easy to spot now, which is awesome!!!! I do have a question though.  Have you looked much into the deception befalling the church via the kundalini spirit??  I have recently been studying on this topic and have been very alarmed and greatly saddened by what I am finding.  I even see this manafestation in my family. Anyway, thank you for your work. The Lord has given you a very needed ministry to keep the eyes of His children open and watching in this crazy time we live in!
Thanks again!  God Bless
 Karen W.

  1. I had to laugh at a comment a financial expert said about supposedly “safe haven” investments such as gold and silver. He said that “safe havens” don’t drop 10% in 2 weeks.
    Store up treasure in heaven, I say!

    • Once again I’m reminded of the prophecy David Wilkerson gave in his mind-blowing book “The Vision.” He called it one of the most significant in the entire book.
      He said that in the last days gold would lose its value and that collectors would be badly burned. (He called them hoarders.)
      Whenever a gold salesman calls (they do), I tell them that prophecy and they hang up real fast.

    • Yes, a sobering prophecy, DW is one of my heroes. I’m re reading the cross and the switchblade. Such an amazing book. I should read nicky cruz’s auto bio…

      If only I had as much faith as DW.

    • Binny ,I read ” The Vision ” back in the late 1970’s. The only thing I’m concerned about is that I remember the whole tone of the book being about how soon the events of the Vision were going to happen. I remember one part of the book in which David Wilkerson said that in his Vision the events shown going into the 1980’s were vague. Before the 1980’s his view of details in the Vision was much more exact. It’s been a while since the 1980’s and I can’t think of any of any major events detailed in the book actually occurring. Perhaps I’m not remembering the book properly but I do know that by the early 1990’s I had discarded the book.

  2. Majority of Mexicans Want More U.S. Help in Drug War

    Albert Einstein once declared, “The definition of insanity is doing the same thing over and over again and expecting different results.” He wasn’t describing our federal government’s nearly century-long war on drugs but I feel he might as well have been.
    Despite ample lip-service for “hope and change” the Obama administration’s cynical response to the escalating drug prohibition-related violence around the Mexican border epitomizes Einstein’s oft-quoted observation.
    The war on drugs really began with the invention of Nylon…… DuPont got together with Hearst (William Randolf Hearst) to begin demonizing hemp in order to create a market for the new fiber.
    They couldn’t prevent people from growing their own clothes unless there was a reason for it……. So they invented that too and started a campaign of prohibition on the dangers of the sub-species that we all know today as marijuana.

    Before the Internet, people were easily fooled by the dominant media, which Hearst owned.,,,, today, it would be like starting a campaign against the Tomato and Potato because they are related to Tobacco and the plant commonly known as the Deadly Nightshade.
    Hillary Clinton recently spoke on the subject of legalization not too long ago.. She simply said “there’s too much money involved”.
    She didnt mean too much drug cartel money, she meant too much money in our system. Enforcement agencies, police, prisons, guards and politicians. Careers are at stake here.
    The Correction Officers of America group said as much in their annual report a few monthd ago “relaxing drug laws or immigration laws would mean less need for our services.” Can’t have that, but if implemented the drug cartels would likely lose interest in cannabis business, because it would no longer be so lucrative. It is the black market aspect of cannabis that makes it lucrative for the cartels. Taking away 60-70% of a Cartels profits will cause the price of their harder drugs to skyrocket when they try to adjust for their losses. This should cause an overall decrease in useage of harder drugs in the popoulation.
    I am personally against drinking alcohol or smoking cigarettes and of course marijuana. Alcohol as well as any kind of smoking is toxic to the human body, but I do not wish to see people imprisoned and criminalized for doing so, nor do I wish to return to the days of alcohol prohibition.

    • War on Drugs is never going to be winnable and frankly I don’t think that’s the point any more than any of these other “War on…” concepts.

      A little addendum to my drone rant:

      Look up the name Brossard for yourselves if you have a problem with that source but he cites real news sources anwyays. Long/short: They’ve been using drones here on US soil for a while as is. We’re just waking up to it now…some of us.

    • Thank you for this commentary. You speak a truth MANY people do not want to hear. I would much rather see joe blow growing a few plants in his yard for personal consumption than see billions of dollars a year flow south and fund the cartels. And before this opens a giant can o worms, let me say this. Without thesavung grace of Jesus, drug use isnt stopping in this country.

    • “Before the Internet, people were easily fooled by the dominant media, which Hearst owned”

      Um … I think there’s something missing in that sentence. Since there isn’t any word or phrase modifying “the dominant media,” the sentence literally says Hearst owned *all* the dominant media (at some point in time) before the Internet existed.

      Sorry, but Hearst never owned *all* the dominant newspapers, television, magazines, radio stations, film companies. Not even if we limit it to the U.S. — not even close.

      For instance, the New York Times is certainly one of the dominant media. Hearst never owned it. Same for the Wall Street Journal, CBS, Time Magazine….

      Nor did Hearst ever own *most* of the dominant media, even if we limit it to the U.S.

    • How about Hearst Corporation owned a great majority of the media? Assets owned by the Hearst Corporation, a privately-held American-based media conglomerate based in the Hearst Tower in New York City, USA.:

    • The KEY to actually winning the “War on Drugs”! If the US could just get refocused there might be a chance…

      1)Law enforcement wont be undermining their own authority anymore by telling people that Cannabis is as addictive and chemically toxic as Heroin, Cocaine, Meth ,etc. Individuals whose only education on drugs comes from the government, wont mistakenly think these other lethal drugs are comparable to Cannabis.

      2)Cannabis users will no longer be exposed to the black markets that sell these other more harmful illicit drugs.

      3)Taking away 60-70% of a Cartels profits will cause the price of their harder drugs to skyrocket when they try to adjust for their losses. This should cause an overall decrease in useage of harder drugs in the popoulation.

      4)People under 21 will, for the first time, actually have a harder time getting Cannabis! We know this because it will be restricted to the same degree as Alchohol. Which, while not impossible for minors to obtain is currently harder to get than Cannabis. ANY improvements to this statistic should be considered a step in the right direction.

      5)Most importantly, if we allocate 30-50% of new taxes collected from Cannabis sales back to the “War on Drugs” and also redirected our current funds to fight these harder drugs, we might actually start to make a dent.

    • I strongly agree with Marzulli that marijuana opens the gate to dark spirits.

      There is no worldly or political program that will make the situation better. Compare legalized abortion.

      It’s part of the spirit of pharmakeia / sorcery or mystery babylon = hermes = mercury-god = jezebel.

      Look at all the people that rebel and gladly make themselves criminals now to get it. They say it’s nothing and ignore all their money fed back into the pockets of the cartels. ..or back to enforcement.

      Look at the masses involved in “legalization / decriminalization” (both lies). The big social experiment in mexico is that personal use possession of all drugs — even the most addicting — has been decriminalized in mexico over 2 years. Look how well that’s worked. The big social experiment of medical marijuana in california is ongoing and they’re billions in debt. So much for the theory of taxing marijuana.

      I’ve worked in prison ministry. I’ve also worked in law enforcement and seen the records of those in prison. Most have long counts of drug use and dui/dwi — in addition to other crimes (theft, violence, etc.).

      Those like president calderon of mexico and former president fox, who want to legalize marijuana if not all drugs, and to push illegal visitors into the US — aren’t on Christ’s side. They’re in bed with the enemy.

      The solution to drug use is Christ, not legalization nor enforcement.

    • I certainly agree that the solution to drug use is Christ; unfortunately not everyone will turn their life over to Christ. It sounds good on paper, but it’s simply not going to happen, so we must do the next best thing and deal with reality.
      This is a very difficult situation. Legalizing cannabis would not reduce the adverse impact on individual’s mental and physical health from the consumption of cannabis. If it’s bad for you when it is illegal, then it’s bad for you when it is legal.
      What does making it legal mean? Does that mean less government control? I think that would be very unlikely.
      Would it mean that people would be free to grow their own?
      Are alcohol and tobacco production controlled. Are they bad for our physical and\or mental health? Are they a waste of our money and health?
      The best option is that we respect our bodies and stop using the stuff completely, but that’s not going to happen either…. I am personally against marijuana use, at the same time people’s lives have been destroyed and ruined, some have served prison time with murders, killers and rapists for just having less than an ounce for personal use and many have been denied a legitimate herbal therapeutic relief of painful ailments such as glaucoma, folks with terminal cancer, and other diseases. That this plant continues to be illegal speaks much about how cynical and self-serving many of our elected “leaders” seem to be. Cannabis prohibition has been a tragedy for decades, and continues to be so.

    • I agree. The crazy amounts of money that go to arrest, prosecute and imprison marijuana users with murderers and thieves would be better spent helping those that have a problem that affects their life….and only those that want that help.

    • Coffee is way more evil than pot. Instead of becoming calm and getting the munchies, you get edgy mean and forget to eat.

    • “How about Hearst Corporation owned a great majority of the media?”

      A “majority” is more than half. A “great majority” would be *considerably* more than 50%.

      On your list, Hearst owns 16 American newspapers, which range from large to quite small, though some of the small ones are in ritzy suburbs. (I saw a larger list when I looked; I remember it included the newspaper for a town where I lived in the 60s, and that’s not on your list.) But there were more than 13,000 newspapers in the U.S. in 2011, according to Stanford University. So unless Hearst owned 6,500+ newspapers, they didn’t own more than half.

      I see 18 magazine titles I can recognize (not all listed together); there are at least a couple of titles which seem to be trade magazines (Floor Covering Weekly and Electronics Products Magazine) which I didn’t count because they’re trade publications. There are currently “greater than 20,000” magazines published in the U.S., though “less than 400 have circulation of more than 100,000 copies.” I imagine most if not all of the 18 have circulations of more than 100,000 copies, though probably not Floor Covering Weekly. But unless Hearst own more than 10,000 magazines published in the U.S., they didn’t own more than half; and unless they own close to 200 magazines with a circulation of more than 100,000, they didn’t own more than half of the highest-circulating magazines in the U.S. [In a former life I was a public librarian, so I do know quite a bit about magazines.]

      Similarly, there are 27 local television stations listed, very few in major markets (plus a long list of cable channels and other things which may or may not be cable channels, which I won’t include with the local television stations since it would be comparing apples and oranges). As of March, 2011, there were 1,774 full power television stations and 2,172 low power stations in the U.S., according to this source, which claimed they had FCC statistics. So unless Hearst owned well over 1,900 television stations, they didn’t own more than half.

    • Ok, I get him feeling you are either a disgruntled employee of the Hearst Corporation or have a new position in research and development with the FCC ..; )
      Whatever the case, I’m done with this debate and ready to move on to the next one. Since we seem to be splitting hairs on the exact percentage of what the Hearst corporation actually owned during the time of the internets infancy, I will ask your forgiveness when I spoke of how “people were easily fooled by the dominant media, which Hearst owned.” Obliviously anyone reading my post with any common sense would know Hearst did not actually own 100% of the media,,, my point was Hearst owned quite a bit of the dominant media at that time and had a big influence on politics and policies.
      Sometimes you have to think outside the box and read between the lines no matter how difficult that may be, again I sincerely apologize, and I did not mean to mislead or cause any reader on this forum to go astray.

      Disclaimer: The events depicted in my post referring to Hearst Media owning ALL dominant media outlets are fictitious. Any similarity to any person or company living or dead owning 100% of the media is merely coincidental and not intended to mislead the reader.

    • Could this be related to the joint US-Russian military drills slated to take place there between May 21-24? Pondering…..

    • Congress recently passed legislation paving the way for what the FAA predicts will be somewhere in the region of 30,000 drones in operation in US skies by 2020.
      Judge Napolitano recently said “The first American patriot that shoots down one of these drones that comes too close to his children in his backyard will be an American hero.”

      A drone was already shot down in South Carolina by some dove shooters, Dove shooters are excellent wing shooters. How smart is it to fly your slow drone over a bunch of wing shooters that can pick off Doves going 50+ MPH?
      Anyone recall Vietnam? The VC could bring down a helicopter with a bow and arrow and a hunk of rope.
      What is scary is if these things are radar evasive then they won’t show up on the air to air radar that airplanes use either, thus no collision warnings. Pilots and passengers will be flying along and, BOOM! But the real dangers well all know are containers of liquids we are hiding in our carry on. If these close calls begin to happen with frequency, then we will have much more to worry about then groping by the TSA,
      If they really want to know what it is or where it came from just shoot one down and if it says (Made in China) its ours.
      All these intrusions on our liberties are coming from unelected unaccountable agencies. It’s Congresses job to shut these groups down and remove all the taxations, regulations, and unconstitutional agenda they put in place. If Congress won’t do this then Congress is an enemy of freedom.

  3. The main stream media portrays Russia as presently being on unfriendly terms with USA. Yet we have them participating…on American soil and/or airspace…in joint military exercises! And the same media presently portrays Israel as being consistently snubbed and ignored by the USA and NATO…yet the American public are now “informed” that the Israelis will also be involved in joint military maneuvers on American soil and/or airspace in the next few months. Mixed messages and high strangeness! Any ideas about what is occurring here?
    Here’s link to article

    • WOLVERINES!!!!!! WOLVERINES!!!!!!! I can afford to be tough. I don’t live in the USA. Watch them Rooskies. WOLVERINES!!!!! etc etc.

  4. I made reservations with the church for Saturday for L.A.’s conference this weekend in Vienna , OH and there were only 10 seats left for the luncheon (seats 200). I think you can still go to the conference without reservations, but the luncheon is full. That is wonderful! I want to see a packed house for L.A. and Russ. Their message is badly needed in these perilous times.

  5. Now it starts in Spain:

    Nationalized Spanish Bank Plummets On News Of Bank Run
    Submitted by Tyler Durden on 05/17/2012 – 07:21 Bank Run Bond Don’t Panic Greece Nationalization Newspaper

    The problem with bank runs is that once they start, they don’t stop. And while the world was conveniently distracted by events in Greece, debating whether or not people were withdrawing money in droves (they were), the real bank run happened elsewhere, namely in Spain, where just nationalized bank Bankia moments ago plunged 30% and was halted following an El Mundo report that “customers had withdrawn €1 billion over the past week.” In other words – a bank run (but whatever you do, don’t call it that – it’s not the politically correct and accepted nomenclature) which has sent shockwaves through Europe, pushed the EURUSD under 1.27, and bond yields in their traditional “Europe is open” direction – wider.


    • Domino effect. Too bad we all have to pay the price because the PIIGS countries just can’t get their act together…of course then again what am I saying? We’re all doing the same stupid and insane “let’s spend our way out of debt” insanity. It’s working great!



    Mind control for robotics. Tom Horn will have kittens when he sees this. Obviously again: Plenty of good can be had here but the slipper slope here can’t be ignored at all IMO when we’re talking about how they’ve got someone using their brain to control a piece of hardware. Mind you: This is what’s been de-classified and carefully leaked out to start getting us “sheep” conditioned for it. “See how great this is? Oh, how wonderful!” Who wants to volunteer to get that chip implanted in THEIR brain?

    • Wonder how those folks w/ irreversible stroke effects volunteered (?) for this experimental implant? I read the article you linked and a fellow in the comment section remarked about how the famous (and wealthy) physicist Stephen Hawking has ever gotten his thoughts into black and white! Seems as though if you’re not famous and poor…well… anything goes?

  7. Round Trip to Hell in a Flying Saucer – is a must read for Christian researchers and others who want to know what is behind much of the ufo related phenomena.

    Those Devilish UFOs June 27, 2011
    By Nick Redfern

    If you’re interested in exploring further the idea that what many believe is at the heart of Ufology (namely that we are being visited by extraterrestrials from far-away star-systems), may not actually be what’s going on at all, Round Trip to Hell in a Flying Saucer may well be the book for you.

    This is without doubt one of the biggest collections of data, case-files, interviews and more on the one facet of Ufology that – more than any other – usually gets relegated to the sidelines.

    And for that reason, Tim Beckley has done us a fine service in compiling 300-pages of packed material on this issue, all under one cover.

    So, what does the book tell us? Well, I’ll tell you! After an Introduction from Tim B himself, in which the general theories relative to demonic UFOs are outlined, we are treated to a very-hard-to-find gem from the early-1950s: a full reproduction of Cecil Michael’s book, Round Trip To Hell In A Flying Saucer (which, yes, is the same title as Tim’s book, so don’t get confused!).

    Not surprisingly, the late-and-legendary John Keel gets a significant mention in the pages of Round Trip To Hell In A Flying Saucer. As students of Ufology will know (or certainly should know!), Keel was hardly a champion of the extraterrestrial hypothesis when it came to UFOs. Instead, he drew parallels between the UFO encounter experience and the realms of the occult, the paranormal, the supernatural, and the downright devilish. And, we get to see the results of Keel’s notable findings in the pages of this very book.

    • Hey L.A.! I kinda sensed there was something…..Doug Hamp’s show just never seemed to happen and…….. well, …..Have you checked into Blogtalk? The Hagmann’s are back there and it is actually the venue I like best for any show. Instantly archived so I can listen while what I did retain is still fresh! Steve Quayle is going to be on their show tonight at 10 PM ET and I was so looking forward to a really full evening with Hawk on survive to thrive, then 2 hours of Marzulli and finishing up with 2 hours of them. They seem like great guys and I bet they would have some good ideas for you! And Russ Dizdar……um, why am I telling you LOL! God will lead the right thing to you!

  8. U.S. Congress expected to vote on legislation authorizing war with Iran

    Posted on May 17, 2012 by The Extinction Protocol

    May 17, 2012 – WASHINGTON – This week, Congress is considering two pieces of legislation relating to Iran. The first undermines a diplomatic solution with Iran and lowers the bar for war. The second authorizes a war of choice against Iran and begins military preparations for it. H.Res.568: Eliminating the Most Viable Alternative to War – The House is expected to vote on H.Res. 568. Read the resolution. Section (6) rejects any United States policy that would rely on efforts to contain a nuclear weapons-capable Iran. Section (7) urges the President to reaffirm the unacceptability of an Iran with nuclear-weapons capability and opposition to any policy that would rely on containment as an option in response to Iranian enrichment. This language represents a significant shift in U.S. policy and would guarantee that talks with Iran, currently scheduled for May 23, would fail. Current U.S. policy is that Iran cannot acquire nuclear weapons. Instead, H. Res. 568 draws the “redline” for military action at Iran achieving a nuclear weapons “capability,” a nebulous and undefined term that could include a civilian nuclear program. Indeed, it is likely that a negotiated deal to prevent a nuclear-armed Iran and to prevent war would provide for Iranian enrichment for peaceful purposes under the framework of the Non-Proliferation of Nuclear Weapons Treaty with strict safeguards and inspections. This language makes such a negotiated solution impossible. At the same time, the language lowers the threshold for attacking Iran. Countries with nuclear weapons “capability” could include many other countries like Japan or Brazil. It is an unrealistic threshold. The Former Chief of Staff of Secretary of State Colin Powell has stated that this resolution “reads like the same sheet of music that got us into the Iraq war.” H.R. 4310: Authorizing War Against Iran and Preparing the Military for it. While H. Res. 568 undermines our diplomatic efforts and lowers the bar for war, H.R. 4310, the National Defense Authorization Act for Fiscal Year 2013 begins military preparations for war. Section 1221 makes military action against Iran a U.S. policy. Section 1222 directs our armed forces to prepare for war. –Huff Post

    U.S. attack preparations finalized: The American ambassador to Israel said this week that not only was America willing to use military force to stop Iran from developing nuclear weapons, but that preparations had already been made for a possible attack. “It would be preferable to resolve this diplomatically and through the use of pressure than to use military force,” the ambassador, Dan Shapiro, said at a meeting Tuesday of the Israeli bar association. “But that doesn’t mean that option is not fully available. And not just available, but it’s ready. The necessary planning has been done to ensure that it’s ready.” While American leaders, including President Obama and his defense secretary and chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, have frequently said all options are on the table regarding Iran, the notion of specific plans being made is not something they typically talk about. In fact, at a March speech to the American Israel Public Affairs Committee, the pro-Israel lobby, Mr. Obama warned that “loose talk of war” could actually speed Tehran’s move toward weaponization, saying “now is not the time for bluster.” –NY Times

    • Russia’s response:Military intervention in the sovereign affairs of other states may lead to outright war, including nuclear war, Russian Prime Minister Dmitry Medvedev said on Thursday.

      “The introduction of all sorts of collective sanctions bypassing international institutions does not improve the situation in the world while reckless military operations in foreign states usually end up with radicals coming to power,” he told an international legal forum in St. Petersburg.

      “At some point such actions, which undermine state sovereignty, may well end in a full-blown regional war and even – I’m not trying to spook anyone – the use of nuclear weapons,” he said.
