“If you don’t want your kids drinking the poison [fluoride]
these scum are putting in there [the water],
go to [names the water filter company’s website].
We gotta start hating these people.
We gotta start being right out there in the open.
They hate us.”
– Alex Jones
The Alex Jones Show, 6/29/10
Alex is speaking of the globalists who force-fluoridate the water, which absolutely is disgusting, causing numerous negative health effects including lowering IQ. And the fluoride they force-feed the people isn’t even food grade!
Alex calls himself a Christian even in this very show:
“I am a Christian. … I am someone who follows Christ. And I can feel God. I can literally feel the Energy Source. I have a relationship. Okay, and I’ve had experiences that I won’t get into on the air, in my life, that are just unbelievable.”
It’s not just about being born-again and having God inside. “Those who are Christ’s have crucified their flesh” (Gal. 5). Going-to-heaven Christians abide in the Vine — so we can bear fruit that remains (Jesus in John 15), that isn’t poisoned. See my article: Who-Goes-To-Heaven Scriptures — Narrow is the Way.
Jesus calls us to love our enemies, all people no matter what. This is the Second Greatest Commandment. We are called to love, not hate.
Hating evil is different from hating people.
It’s quite different to hate what is being done to our children and to hate the people who are doing it, literally under Satan’s control. These people are pawns of the Devil.
Expose the system. Expose the matrix, but “love all people” is Christ’s way.
Or we’re like them: demon-led haters — branches that will be thrown into the fire and burned (John 15).
The ends doesn’t justify the means.
Failure to prepare
is preparing to fail.

Characteristics of a Sex and Love Addict *
|The following are some characteristics of sex and love addiction that we have used to hide the progressive loss of self, which is the heart of the disease:|
|1.)||Having few healthy boundaries, we become emotionally and sexually involved with people without knowing them.|
|2.)||Out of fear of abandonment or loneliness, we stay in or return to painful, destructive relationships, always struggling to conceal our dependency. Real intimacy is rare, if it has ever existed.|
|3.)||Fearing emotional or sexual deprivation, we compulsively pursue and involve ourselves with one relationship after another, sometimes having more than one sexual or emotional affair at a time.|
|4.)||We confuse love with such things as neediness, intensity, pity, sexual or physical attraction, being a victim or being a rescuer.|
|5.)||We feel empty or incomplete when we are alone. Though we fear both intimacy and commitment, we continually search for relationships or sexual contacts.|
|6.)||We sexualize stress, guilt, loneliness, anger, fear and envy. We use sex or emotional dependence as substitutes for nurturing, support and understanding.|
|7.)||We manipulate and control others with drama and sexuality.|
|8.)||We become immobilized or seriously distracted by sexual or romantic obsessions and fantasies.|
|9.)||We avoid personal responsibility by attaching ourselves to people who are emotionally unavailable.|
|10.)||We stay in denial about our addiction to emotional intensity, romantic intrigue and compulsive sexual activity.|
|11.)||To avoid feeling vulnerable, we may retreat from all intimate involvement, mistaking sexual and emotional anorexia for recovery.|
|12.)||We assign magical qualities to others. We idealize and pursue them, then we blame them for not fulfilling our fantasies and expectations.|
|* The Characteristics are typically read at meetings of Sex and Love Addicts Anonymous.|

Sex Addicts Anonymous (SAA)
1.We admitted we were powerless over addictive sexual behavior — that our lives had become unmanageable
2. Came to believe that a Power greater than ourselves could restore us to sanity.
3. Made a decision to turn our will and our lives over to the care of God as we understood God.
4. Made a searching and fearless moral inventory of ourselves.
5. Admitted to God, to ourselves, and to another human being the exact nature of our wrongs.
6. Were entirely ready to have God remove all these defects of character.
7. Humbly asked God to remove our shortcomings.
8. Made a list of all persons we had harmed, and became willing to make amends to them all.
9. Made direct amends to such people wherever possible, except when to do so would injure them or others.
10. Continued to take personal inventory and when we were wrong promptly admitted it.
11. Sought through prayer and meditation to improve our conscious contact with God as we understood God, praying only for knowledge of God’s will for us and the power to carry that out.
12.Having had a spiritual awakening as a result of these steps, we tried to carry this message to other sex addicts and to practice these principles in our lives.

I’m Adding Some Steps
See: Who-Goes-To-Heaven Scriptures — Narrow is the Way
To be free, it helps tremendously to know that lust is a salvation issue!
Jesus said in the Sermon on the Mount (Mt. 5), we need to do whatever is necessary to be free from lust so we won’t go to Hell, so I think there should be more steps:
13. Realize that if we’re born-again Christians, God will never allow us to be temped beyond what we can overcome, always providing a way to escape willful sin (1 Cor. 10:13).
14. Acknowledge that if we are born-again Christians and willfully lust, we are literally now on the Highway to Hell, forfeiting our right to go to heaven, as long as we’re on that highway.
15. Acknowledge that if we willfully lust, we have opened the door for powerful, invisible, demon spirits to actually drive the addiction in our bodies, who make it seem impossible to get free.
16. Realize that through Christ, we can do all things — OVERCOMERS — more than conquerors!
17. Through God’s grace, we will crucify our flesh (Paul in Gal. 5), doing whatever we have to in order to not lust at all (Jesus in Mt. 5), which will remove the evil spirits’ rights (Eph. 4) to drive lust in our bodies.
18. Understand that steps 8 and 9 are important to be able to be ONE with each other and to be able to rest in God.
Did I miss any steps? Like forgiving those who hurt us, determining not to hate anyone from our now clean hearts?

From: News with Views
As we approach Father’s Day this Sunday, I think it is necessary to once again draw attention to what has become one of America’s greatest problems: the dearth of masculine leadership in the home. […]
…the overwhelming majority of evidence conclusively proves that a family is much better off when Dad is in it. Boys, especially, require the firm hand of masculine leadership. And that is a fact! And this brings to mind another problem: many fathers are either chronically away from home due to work schedules or are deliberately taking a passive, non-leadership role in the home. Either way, the result is the same: too many families are experiencing a dearth of masculine leadership. Let’s say it another way: masculine leadership is needed now more than ever! […]
The lack of masculine discipline and leadership in America’s homes is easily visible everywhere you go. Stroll down the aisle of most any shopping center, eat out at just about any restaurant, and attend practically any movie theater or church service and one is inundated with unruly, disrespectful, disobedient, bratty kids. And in almost every instance, there is either no father anywhere to be found, or if he is present, he is completely unattached and devoid of leadership skills. […]
There are many contributing factors to the decline of masculine leadership, of course. Society, itself, has mostly feminized our entire culture by ridiculing and lampooning manhood. Note the television commercials and programs that denigrate fatherhood. In most of these commercials and shows, the dad is caricatured as being the resident nincompoop, a bungling buffoon who barely has enough sense to walk and chew gum at the same time. Hollywood is no better. Think about it: when was the last movie you saw that extolled genuine masculinity? I’m not talking about bulging muscles, either. I’m talking about moral strength along with the inner character of virtue and integrity. As far as the social acceptance of masculinity is concerned, it seems that manhood died out with the black and white westerns.
Think, too, about how our children are being raised. The vast majority of them are being raised in a home devoid of strong, masculine leadership. In our schools (public, private, parochial, or Christian) the vast majority of teachers are women. The same is true for most churches. Think about it: unless a young man plays sports, he may grow from childhood to adulthood without hardly ever being exposed to real masculine leadership. No wonder more and more boys seem to be confused about their sexuality.
In addition, our laws increasingly discriminate against fatherhood. Let a father discipline his children according to Biblical instruction and there is a very good chance that he will be charged with some sort of criminal abuse, and have his children taken from his home by the authorities. Even an unfounded or unsubstantiated accusation against a father can result in State agencies removing his children from his home. Furthermore, the father may be subjected to a lifetime of government harassment by being permanently declared some sort of child abuser; he may also be forced to forfeit his freedom to purchase a firearm or to live where he chooses.
I can tell you this: if a bruised butt is evidence of child abuse, I was abused BIG TIME! My dad took seriously that maxim, “Spare the rod; spoil the child.” I can say this, however: I never got a spanking that I did not deserve; and looking back on it, I thank God for every spanking I got, because Dad’s correction gave me the sense of security, love, and direction that I desperately needed to make the right choices in life. I shudder to think where (or what) I would be today had my father not disciplined me. I also thank God that I was raised in a better time, when the culture had not ditched the laws of God and Nature in favor of this stupid, senseless, asinine political correctness that is rampant today!
I tell you the truth: there are not too many problems that could not be solved today with an old-fashioned, honest, morally upright, courageous disciplinarian-father who would lovingly bring up his children in the fear and admonition of the Lord. And let’s all remember that it is extremely difficult for a man to be this kind of father without the love and support of his wife. In this regard, the feminist movement is largely responsible for destroying both the femininity of our women and the masculinity of our men.
The serious incidents that took place on 31 May between Israeli forces and activists on a flotilla heading for Gaza once again put the spotlight on the acute hardship faced by the population in the Gaza Strip.
As the ICRC has stressed repeatedly, the dire situation in Gaza cannot be resolved by providing humanitarian aid. The closure imposed on the Gaza Strip is about to enter its fourth year, choking off any real possibility of economic development. Gazans continue to suffer from unemployment, poverty and warfare, while the quality of Gaza’s health care system has reached an all-time low.
The whole of Gaza’s civilian population is being punished for acts for which they bear no responsibility. The closure therefore constitutes a collective punishment imposed in clear violation of Israel’s obligations under international humanitarian law.
“The closure is having a devastating impact on the 1.5 million people living in Gaza”, said Béatrice Mégevand-Roggo, the ICRC’s head of operations for the Middle East. “That is why we are urging Israel to put an end to this closure and call upon all those who have an influence on the situation, including Hamas, to do their utmost to help Gaza’s civilian population. Israel’s right to deal with its legitimate security concerns must be balanced against the Palestinians’ right to live normal, dignified lives.”
The international community has to do its part to ensure that repeated appeals by States and international organizations to lift the closure are finally heeded.
Under international humanitarian law, Israel must ensure that the basic needs of Gazans, including adequate health care, are met. The Palestinian authorities, for their part, must do everything within their power to provide proper health care, supply electricity and maintain infrastructure for Gaza’s people.
Furthermore, all States have an obligation to allow and facilitate rapid and unimpeded passage of all relief consignments, equipment and personnel.

Close to six million Americans have been diagnosed with Alzheimer’s Disease this year. Although symptoms vary widely, the first symptom most people notice is forgetfulness that, at times, is severe enough to affect their work and social lives.…
All-in-all, Alzheimer’s is a frightening disease with little relief in sight for the sufferer. Recently, Alzheimer’s patients are being promised assistance using a medical microchip that is surgically implanted into an Alzheimer patients flesh. The controversial microchip creator VeriChip Corp. is at the forefront….
Opponents believe the government is choosing the most vulnerable citizens for the initial implants — Alzheimer’s patients, the handicapped, retarded, the elderly — but eventually every human being in the US, Mexico and Canada will be required to have the microchip implants if only to keep track of them and their activities.
“Under the federally supported National Animal Identification System (NAIS), digital tags are expected to be affixed to the U.S.’s 40 million farm animals to enable regulators to track and respond quickly to disease, bioterrorism, and other calamities,” according to a Business Week article.
“Opponents have many fears about this plan, among them that it could be the forerunner of a similar system for humans. The theory, circulated in blogs, goes like this: You test it on the animals first, demonstrating the viability of the radio frequency identification devices (RFIDs) to monitor each and every animal’s movements and health history from birth to death, and then move on to people.”
TARGETS OF THE ILLUMINATI
COMMITTEE OF 300
[ACCORDING TO DR. JOHN COLEMAN]
1. To establish a One World Government/New World Order with a unified church and monetary system under their direction. The One World Government began to set up its church in the 1920:s and 30:s, for they realized the need for a religious belief inherent in mankind must have an outlet and, therefore, set up a “church” body to channel that belief in the direction they desired.
2. To bring about the utter destruction of all national identity and national pride, which was a primary consideration if the concept of a One World Government was to work.
3. To engineer and bring about the destruction of religion, and more especially, the Christian Religion, with the one exception, their own creation, as mentioned above.
4. To establish the ability to control of each and every person through means of mind control and what Zbignew Brzezinski called techonotronics, which would create human-like robots and a system of terror which would make Felix Dzerzinhski’s Red Terror look like children at play.
5. To bring about the end to all industrialization and the production of nuclear generated electric power in what they call “the post-industrial zero-growth society”. Excepted are the computer- and service industries. US industries that remain will be exported to countries such as Mexico where abundant slave labor is available. As we saw in 1993, this has become a fact through the passage of the North American Free Trade Agreement, known as NAFTA. Unemployables in the US, in the wake of industrial destruction, will either become opium-heroin and/or cocaine addicts, or become statistics in the elimination of the “excess population” process we know of today as Global 2000.
6. To encourage, and eventually legalize the use of drugs and make pornography an “art-form“, which will be widely accepted and, eventually, become quite commonplace.
7. To bring about depopulation of large cities according to the trial run carried out by the Pol Pot regime in Cambodia. It is interesting to note that Pol Pot’s genocidal plans were drawn up in the US by one of the Club of Rome’s research foundations, and overseen by Thomas Enders, a high-ranking State Department official. It is also interesting that the committee is currently seeking to reinstate the Pol Pot butchers in Cambodia.
8. To suppress all scientific development except for those deemed beneficial by the Illuminati. Especially targeted is nuclear energy for peaceful purposes. Particularly hated are the fusion experiments currently being scorned and ridiculed by the Illuminati and its jackals of the press. Development of the fusion torch would blow the Illuminati’s conception of “limited natural resources” right out of the window. A fusion torch, properly used, could create unlimited and as yet untapped natural resources, even from the most ordinary substances. Fusion torch uses are legion, and would benefit mankind in a manner which, as yet, is not even remotely comprehended by the public.
9. To cause. by means of limited wars in the advanced countries, by means of starvation and diseases in the Third World countries, the death of three billion people by the year 2050, people they call “useless eaters”. The Committee of 300 (Illuminati) commissioned Cyrus Vance to write a paper on this subject of how to bring about such genocide. The paper was produced under the title “Global 2000 Report” and was accepted and approved for action by former President James Earl Carter, and Edwin Muskie, then Secretary of States, for and on behalf of the US Government. Under the terms of the Global 2000 Report, the population of the US is to be reduced by 100 million by the year of 2050.
10. To weaken the moral fiber of the nation and to demoralize workers in the labor class by creating mass unemployment. As jobs dwindle due to the post industrial zero growth policies introduced by the Club of Rome, the report envisages demoralized and discouraged workers resorting to alcohol and drugs. The youth of the land will be encouraged by means of rock music and drugs to rebel against the status quo, thus undermining and eventually destroying the family unit. In this regard, the Committee commissioned Tavistock Institute to prepare a blueprint as to how this could be achieved. Tavistock directed Stanford Research to undertake the work under the direction of Professor Willis Harmon. This work later became known as the “Aquarian Conspiracy”.
11. To keep people everywhere from deciding their own destinies by means of one created crisis after another and then “managing” such crises. This will confuse and demoralize the population to the extent where faced with too many choices, apathy on a massive scale will result. In the case of the US, an agency for Crisis Management is already in place. It is called the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA), whose existence I first enclosed in 1980.
12. To introduce new cults and continue to boost those already functioning which include rock music gangsters such as the Rolling Stones (a gangster group much favored by European Black Nobility), and all of the Tavistock-created rock groups which began with the Beatles.
13. To continue to build up the cult of Christian Fundamentalism begun by the British East India Company’s servant Darby, which will be misused to strengthen the Zionist State of Israel by identifying with the Jews through the myth of “God’s chosen people”, and by donating very substantial amounts of money to what they mistakenly believe is a religious cause in the furtherance of Christianity.
[I’m adding this brief video exposé of John Nelson Darby. However, I do support the right of Israel to exist, but I do not support their atrocities — just as I don’t support the many, dark side originated, US atrocities – editor.]
[youtube=http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xEGe8EzygwM]Dispensationalism started by John Nelson Darby who [probably isn’t doing so well right now]
“Darby is noted in the theological world as the father of “dispensationalism,” later made popular in the United States by Cyrus Scofield’s Scofield Reference Bible. Charles Henry Mackintosh, 1820-1896, with his popular style spread Darby’s teachings to humbler elements in society and may be regarded as the journalist of the Brethren Movement. CHM popularised Darby more than any other Brethren author. Darby is sometimes credited with originating, the “secret rapture” theory wherein Christ will suddenly remove His bride, the Church, from this world before the judgments of the tribulation. …
14. To press for the spread of religious cults such as the Moslem Brotherhood, Moslem Fundamentalism, the Sikhs, and to carry out mind control experiments of the Jim Jones and “Son of Sam” type. It is worth noting that the late Khomeini was a creation of British Military Intelligence Div. 6, MI6. This detailed work spelled out the step-by-step process which the US Government implemented to put Khomeini in power.
15. To export “religious liberation” ideas around the world so as to undermine all existing religions, but more especially the Christian religion. This began with the “Jesuit Liberation Theology“, that brought an end to the Somoza Family rule in Nicaragua, and which today is destroying El Salvador, now 25 years into a “civil war”. Costa Rica and Honduras are also embroiled in revolutionary activities, instigated by the Jesuits. One very active entity engaged in the so-called liberation theology, is the Communist-oriented Mary Knoll Mission. This accounts for the extensive media attention to the murder of four of Mary Knoll’s so-called nuns in El Salvador a few years ago. The four nuns were Communist subversive agents and their activities were widely documented by the Government of El Salvador. The US press and the new media refused to give any space or coverage to the mass of documentation possessed by the Salvadorian Government, which proved what the Mary Knoll Mission nuns were doing in the country. Mary Knoll is in service in many countries, and placed a leading role in bringing Communism to Rhodesia, Moçambique, Angola and South Africa.
16. To cause a total collapse of the world’s economies and engender total political chaos.
17. To take control of all foreign and domestic policies of the US.
18. To give the fullest support to supranational institutions such as the United Nations, the International Monetary Fund (IMF), the Bank of International Settlements, the World Court and, as far as possible, make local institutions less effective, by gradually phasing them out or bringing them under the mantle of the UN.
19. To penetrate and subvert all governments, and work from within them to destroy the sovereign integrity of the nations represented by them.
20. To organize a world-wide terrorist apparatus and to negotiate with terrorists whenever terrorist activities take place. It will be recalled that it was Bettino Craxi, who persuaded the Italian and US Governments to negotiate with the Red Brigades kidnapers of Prime Minister Moro and General Dozier. As an aside, Dozier was placed under strict orders not to talk what happened to him. Should he ever break that silence, he will no doubt be mad “a horrible example of”, in the manner in which Henry Kissinger dealt with Aldo Moro, Ali Bhutto and General Zia ul Haq.
21. To take control of education in America with the intent and purpose of utterly and completely destroying it. By 1993, the full force effect of this policy is becoming apparent, and will be even more destructive as primary and secondary schools begin to teach “Outcome Based Education” (OBE).

The Hidden Agenda Behind Pornography
June 10, 2010
by Henry Makow Ph.D.
Porn is so freely available on the Internet, I can’t believe anyone pays for it.
Yet, supposedly porn is a $12 billion a year industry in the US, of which the Internet represents $2.5 billion.
I suspect porn receives a hidden subsidy from the Illuminati so it can be free. This subsidy may take the form of money laundering.
Porn serves a vital function for the Illuminati. We know they want to enslave us using debt, mind control and false flag terrorism. But we are not aware they have a deliberate program to enslave us spiritually using sex.
Put another way, the Illuminati is a satanic cult based on the Jewish Cabala. The course of “modern” history and culture has been designed to induct the human race into this pagan sex cult.
Its cosmology imagines that sexual intercourse somehow restores cosmic harmony. We have imbibed its idea that the mere act of intercourse is an edifying mystical-religious experience. This has resulted in the deification of sex and young beautiful women. Of course, anonymous sex is actually an incredibly degrading experience for both men and women.
Sexual degradation is the primary instrument used by the Illuminati to induct people into Satanism.
Thus, they promote everything that is unnatural and perverse: anonymous sex, bestiality, incest, pedophilia, and homosexuality (which usually involves anonymous sex and more.) This is how they enslave mankind.
We don’t like to admit it but I’m afraid “sexual liberation” was a ruse.
Monogamy and family are wholesome and life affirming. Sex is consecrated for marriage. Its purpose is to bond husband and wife and to provide a wholesome environment for children.
“Sexual liberation” is the crucial first step to Satanism. It reduces all relationships to the lowest sexual common denominator. Men, and increasingly women, now think in terms of “hot or not,” of “hitting” this and “doing” that, no matter how inappropriate. Sex has become a tiresome cultural obsession and fetish. Homosexuality is normalized and promoted.
Anonymous sex is the antithesis of monogamy and family.
Yet anonymous sex is now the norm. We have been conditioned to think of anonymous sex as “self expression” and “liberation.”
In fact, it is the unfolding of their satanic methodology. It is how they dehumanize and destroy their members, how they win them for their evil deity.
We’ve gotta job to do.
We’re runnin’ out of time to do it.
You’ve got a gift to use.
Get out in the world and use it.
Bury your foolish pride.
We’ve gotta unionize.
Hey, don’t you think it’s time
to boycott Hell?
Don’t let a neighbor go,
form a holy picket line.
We’ve gotta let them know.
Don’t you think it’s time
to boycott Hell.
We’ve got the strength to win
standing arm in arm together.
Forget our differences,
we can change the world forever. …

“Success comes from knowing that you did your best to become the best that you are capable of becoming.”
“Although I wanted my players to work to win, I tried to convince them they had always won when they had done their best.”
“Consider the rights of others before your own feelings,
and the feelings of others before your own rights.”
“Never make excuses. Your friends don’t need them and your foes won’t believe them.”
“Winning takes talent, to repeat takes character.”
“Never mistake activity for achievement.”
“Be more concerned with your character than your reputation, because your character is what you really are, while your reputation is merely what others think you are.”
“If I were ever prosecuted for my religion, I truly hope there would be enough evidence to convict me.”
“Remember this your lifetime through:
Tomorrow there will be more to do.
And failure waits for all who stay
With some success made yesterday.
Tomorrow you must try once more,
And even harder than before.”

The Roman poet Juvenal (circa 100 A.D.) wrote regarding the way latter-day Roman emperors retained power and control over the masses that were seemingly more than happy to obsess themselves with trivialities and self-indulgences while their once-great-and-powerful empire collapsed before their very eyes. He wrote:
“Already long ago, from when we sold our vote to no man, the People have abdicated our duties; for the People who once upon a time handed out military command, high civil office, legions–everything, now restrains itself and anxiously hopes for just two things: bread and circuses.”
I submit that a good many in America are, like Rome of old, carelessly frittering away their God-given liberties, foolishly clamoring for nothing more than government handouts and never-ending entertainment. Millions and millions of Americans (especially males) are literally intoxicated with sports. Sports are no longer a great American pastime; they are now a great American obsession.
Mind you, this writer has been a sports fan all of his life. I began playing organized basketball in the fifth grade; I was on the high school wrestling team; I played football in high school and college; and I ran track. Still today, I enjoy watching a good NFL game….
I am not talking about sports in general; I am talking about the way many American men have allowed sports to control and dominate their lives. With many, sports are not just a hobby; they are a religion. I cannot count the number of conversations between men that I overhear in restaurants, airplanes, boardrooms, and, yes, even church houses, in which every man in the circle is literally consumed with all sorts of sports facts, information, and opinions. In many such discussions, these men will talk about nothing else. To these men, there is absolutely nothing in the world more important than the latest sports score, announcement, or trade. NOTHING!
And there is also a very real psychological pitfall associated with a man’s intoxication with sports. I submit that an obsession with sports gives men a false sense of masculinity and actually serves to steal true manhood from them.

“Karl Marx said that religion is the opiate of the masses —
when really it’s football.”
“Why don’t you realize what your life’s priorities are?
A bunch of guys chasing a ball around a field
has become the focal point of Americans’ lives.
And we wonder why the country’s going down the toilet.
Look in the mirror.”

Don’t Look Back
By John Wooden
The years have left their imprint
on my hands and on my face.
Erect no longer is my walk,
and slower is my pace.
But there is no fear within my heart
because I am growing old.
I only wish I had more time
to better serve my Lord.
When I have gone to Him in prayer,
He has brought me inner peace.
And soon my cares and worries
and other problems cease.
He’s helped me in so many ways;
He’s never let me down.
Why should I fear the future
when soon I could be near His crown?
Though I know down here
my time is short,
there’s endless time up there.
And He will forgive and keep me ever in His loving care.
