Attempted Censorship For Posting 2011 Food Stamp Statistics

Preface: This post / page was first posted on 7.12.2011. It disappeared right after I first posted it on 7.12.2011 and it disappeared again on 7.13.2011. So I just re-posted it for a second time. Someone somewhere is attempting to censor free speech in America that dissents from any official information coming from the White House. This fact should be noted as one of the Top Ten Signs of Emerging Fascism. I want to thank readers for being here, and for caring enough to tell others about my work and for sharing the information they find on this blog. Please help me to continue to remain online. I need to vacate the heavily surveilled WP blogging platform asap. I need your financial support to do that. Browse the store or make a donation. Each time this post is removed I will re-post it. It will remain on the front page of this blog through Labor Day. I intend to make my point. Trying to silence factual dissenting speech in America will only make that speech grow louder.  I intend to keep researching, writing and speaking the truth to Americans, who are my friends, my family, my beloved countrymen, my neighbors. Thank you again for taking the time to read and share what you find on Alternative News Report.

“Today SNAP released the most recent food stamp numbers. Not surprisingly, we just saw another all time high 44.2 million poverty-level Americans relying on government funding for day to day sustenance. Granted the number appears to be plateauing, so all those who bought the change if not the ‘hype’, can rejoice as it may start declining next month: a development that is sure to be herald for Obama a 4th Putin-esque term.”

On 7.12.2011 I wrote:

There are approximately 300 million people in America in 2011. Between 44.2 and 47 million of them are now on food stamps. Did you know this? My first post on this topic from 15 minutes ago, disappeared into thin air when I tried to post it online.

I need to correct the erroneous percentages I see being bantered around in the media. It is NOT 14% of Americans who are now on food stamps. It is 20%.

Here is the bizarre little note that popped up in the WP dashboard when I tried to add the category “2011 Food Stamp Statistics” to my list of post categories:

WordPress is now being actively monitored and someone is trying to censor what is being posted. This is my second try. Here goes:

More on this topic, and what just happened, later. Please help me out and see to it that this post flies around the world. It’s not that the statistics are that dire. Americans who have eyes and a pulse know that what we are living through is NOT just a recession. It’s a depression. It’s the issue of being censored for trying to publish an article about it. That’s one of the top ten signs of emerging fascism: media and free speech censorship. Make sure that this post, with the screen shot I just grabbed, showing the telltale surveillance, and the attempt to intimidate me into NOT posting, gets into every email inbox in America. We are losing our free internet. And we are going to have to fight like hell to keep it.

Congress Moves to Pass Legislation Censoring Huge Chunks of the Free Internet to American Citizens: Sign Petition to STOP This Bill

27 Oct

Copyright 10.26.2010 By CK Hunter

Do you see how congress behaves when the population is distracted by a turbulent 2010 mid term election season? This behavior is parr for the course. Read the post below and sign the petition linked to it to stop passage of this legislation. Our free speech via a free internet is under attack in America, because the Obama White House wants to silence all dissent to their policies and movement toward a more socialist American society. Here’s the post. Please reblog and share this post with as many as you can.

Thanks! Chase Kyla Hunter

Stop the Internet Blacklist now!

By David Segal and Aaron Swartz

When it really matters to them, Congressmembers can come together — with a panache and wry wit you didn’t know they had. As banned books week gets underway, and President Obama admonishes oppressive regimes for their censorship of the Internet, a group of powerful Senators — Republicans and Democrats alike — have signed onto a bill that would vastly expand the government’s power to censor the Internet.

The Combating Online Infringement and Counterfeits Act (COICA) was introduced just one week ago, but it’s greased and ready to move, with a hearing in front of the Judiciary Committee this Thursday. If people don’t speak out, US citizens could soon find themselves joining Iranians and Chinese in being blocked from accessing broad chunks of the public Internet.

Help us stop this bill in its tracks! Click here to sign our petition.

COICA creates two blacklists of Internet domain names. Courts could add sites to the first list; the Attorney General would have control over the second. Internet service providers and others (everyone from Comcast to PayPal to Google AdSense) would be required to block any domains on the first list. They would also receive immunity (and presumably the good favor of the government) if they block domains on the second list.

The lists are for sites “dedicated to infringing activity,” but that’s defined very broadly — any domain name where counterfeit goods or copyrighted material are “central to the activity of the Internet site” could be blocked.

One example of what this means in practice: sites like YouTube could be censored in the US. Copyright holders like Viacom often argue copyrighted material is central to the activity of YouTube, but under current US law, YouTube is perfectly legal as long as they take down copyrighted material when they’re informed about it — which is why Viacom lost to YouTube in court.

But if COICA passes, Viacom wouldn’t even need to prove YouTube is doing anything illegal to get it shut down — as long as they can persuade the courts that enough other people are using it for copyright infringement, the whole site could be censored.

Perhaps even more disturbing: Even if Viacom couldn’t get a court to compel censorship of a YouTube or a similar site, the DOJ could put it on the second blacklist and encourage ISPs to block it even without a court order. (ISPs have ample reason to abide the will of the powerful DOJ, even if the law doesn’t formally require them to do so.)

COICA’s passage would be a tremendous blow to free speech on the Internet — and likely a first step towards much broader online censorship. Please help us fight back: The first step is signing our petition. We’ll give you the tools to share it with your friends and call your Senator.

Who Owns the Media? Less Than A Dozen Corporations

When a half dozen corporations own every major media outlet in America, the stage is set for a state controlled and censored media that rivals that of any communist nation. The media ownership hegemony in the USA must end, in just the same way that telephone company monopolies were ended during the old days of “Ma Bell”. – CK Hunter

Ownership Chart: The Big Six

The U.S. media landscape is dominated by massive corporations that, through a history of mergers and acquisitions, have concentrated their control over what we see, hear and read. In many cases, these giant companies are vertically integrated, controlling everything from initial production to final distribution. Here is information about the largest U.S. media firms.

The leader of a newly formed public awareness campaign to alert U.S. citizens about an effort to stifle free speech says he expects local “boards” will be assembled within 90 days to begin censoring talk radio, a move that will come as an “Arctic blast” against the expression of opinion in the United States.

WND reported just days ago on a meeting at which more than two dozen principals of the nation’s top talk radio shows held a private strategy meeting to discuss government plans to squelch critical political speech on radio.

Organized by Brad O’Leary, author of the new book, “Shut Up, America! The End of Free Speech,” and Joseph Farah, editor and chief executive officer of WND, the group chose one attendee to be spokesman and chairman of the coalition – syndicated host Roger Hedgecock of San Diego.

The American Radio Free Speech Foundation was adopted as the name, and leaders now have announced a public awareness campaign and educational initiative, called Don’t Touch My Dial.

The announcement said the U.S. now is facing “an insidious attack on its First Amendment Rights that is being cloaked in legislation and regulation evidenced by the recently circulated draft FCC regulations … to impose ‘localism’ and ‘media ownership diversity’ on talk radio.”

“In addition, under the guise of ‘cyberspace security,’ Sens. Rockefeller, Snowe and Nelson have introduced S773 which would, critics say, give the federal government control over the Internet including, under emergency conditions, the right of the president to shut down the whole Internet or sites on it, including the interruption of e-mail,” the announcement said.

“When the public is informed about what is happening behind the scenes to threaten their First Amendment rights, they will be outraged. As shown in a recent poll that was commissioned by the coalition and is part of the ‘Zogby/O’Leary Report’s First 100 Days Poll’ when 3,937 voters from the last election were asked: ‘Four members of the U.S. Senate recently introduced a bill that would allow the president of the United States to turn off the Internet nationally in the event of an emergency, however the Bill does not DEFINE what constitutes an emergency. Do you support or oppose this bill?'” the announcement said.

It’s time to put up or shut up, America. Literally. Get the book that shows how to fight the assault on your freedom of speech!

Nearly 82 percent opposed the idea. Only 5 percent agreed with it.

Hedgecock told WND that most people simply don’t understand what the government appears to be demanding.

“I think the FCC is on the cusp of enacting regulations that would fundamentally alter the traditional American assumption that we have the right to share and debate political opinions,” he said.

“I believe the strategy is to make the current state of compliant journalism that prevails in the mainstream media the norm as well on the Internet and in talk radio,” he said.

And it’s coming soon.

“I think in the next 90 days we will see the imposition of the local advisory boards. They will immediately become complaint departments staffed by the Left on all local and nationally syndicate talk programs,” Hedgecock warned.

The underlying threat, of course, would be to the license the business needs to operate as a radio station.

“The threats of those complaints to the viability of the underlying station licenses will be immediate and will force corporations that own these stations into a very defensive posture,” he said.

“Talk about a chilling effect on free speech, this will be an Arctic blast of restraint on opinion based on the threat to take the license away,” Hedgecock said.

But talk radio will be just the first target, he said.

“The assault on the First Amendment that is being planned by the government and the extremist Left is not limited to their desire to silence conservative talk radio,” he said. “Newspapers and television are not immune to the anti-First Amendment efforts that are at work here. In addition, the Internet is also a target for receiving the restrictive aspects of the so-called ‘Fairness Doctrine.'”

Just weeks ago, Sen. Dick Durbin, D-Ill., submitted an amendment to the D.C. Voting Bill which would require the FCC to “encourage and promote diversity in … media ownership” and reaffirm FCC authority to mandate the presentation “of opposing points of view on issues of public importance.”

Also of concern to the hosts and producers gathered in the nation’s capital was a decision last week by Clear Channel, the nation’s largest owner of radio stations, to mandate the creation of local advisory boards by June at all of its properties. The move was seen as pre-emptive as the industry anticipates an FCC stacked with Barack Obama appointees will soon require stations to answer to panels of community activists.

In February, the FCC floated several proposals to require stations to better serve local communities, including establishing community advisory boards to consult stations on programming.

“We are materially increasing our commitment to community programming, increasing our accountability and broadening our public-service contributions in every local market we serve,” said John Hogan, president and chief executive officer of Clear Channel. “We believe when radio focuses on servicing local communities, it is radio at its finest.”

Other key members of the group so far include Lars Larson, Rusty Humphries, Rev. Jesse Lee Peterson, Steve Gill, Martha Zoller, Joyce Kaufman and Kirby Wilbur.

The public awareness campaign website includes a petition campaign to protest the developing limits. It also describes the so-called “Fairness Doctrine,” explains what it does to free speech and quotes a number of experts on the subject.

“Rather than having the government regulate what people can say, we should let the market decide what people want to hear. That’s precisely why the Fairness Doctrine was abandoned, and that’s why it ought not to be revived,” said U.S. Rep. Jeff Flake, R-Ariz., in a commentary critical of the plan.

“This fight is a First Amendment fight and one that every American must be involved with, which is why we have created ‘Don’t Touch My Dial’ as a vehicle for mass participation,” Hedgecock said.

Hedgecock also is chairman for Unfair Air, an effort to to protect First Amendment Rights as they pertain to radio and radio audiences.

WND founder and editor Joseph Farah launched a petition campaign months ago to block federal government attacks on freedom of speech and freedom of the press.

“This issue – and the urgent need for a broad-based, aggressive coalition to fight back – is much bigger than talk radio, and much more dangerous than an effort to simply silence a few voices that the current administration dislikes,” says Hedgecock. “This fight is a First Amendment fight and one that every American must be involved with, which is why we have created ‘Don’t Touch My Dial’ as a vehicle for mass participation.”

Patriots: How NOT to Blog & How NOT to Get Sent to Jail

‘Uh-Oh They’re Here’

A persistent blogger annoys police — and winds up in jail.

Monday, August 10, 2009

A 34-YEAR-OLD woman, the mother of a 12-year-old girl, has been locked up in a Virginia jail for three weeks and could remain there for at least another month. Her crime? Blogging about the police.

See: http://www.washingtonpost.com/wp-dyn/content/article/2009/08/09/AR2009080902126.html


The tragic, yet somewhat comical news story linked illustrates a very valid point for bloggers who follow local police activity. The woman who was jailed for blogging about undercover drug enforcement officers in Charlottesville Virginia clearly had some real issues, possibly a romantic obsession with one or more of the officers, and lacked all common sense and respect for personal and professional privacy in her blog posts. For those who intend to blog and write citizen journalist news stories about local law enforcement, there should clearly be some protocols to follow in order to avoid the fate of the woman in this news story, who is still sitting in a jail cell as of the date of this article.

New Citizen Journalists: Use good judgment as to what is REALLY newsworthy

New Citizen Journalists: Use good judgment as to what is REALLY newsworthy

These are my own protocols. I offer them up for those who might be new to citizen journalism and who do not really know where the boundary line is between reporting, good reporting, no reporting –  and just plain outright idiotic harassment. We live in an era where all intrinsic common sense seems to have flown out the window and many people literally do not know how to conduct themselves in the most basic and fundamental of circumstances. The woman in the news story linked is obviously one of those people. She needed to have someone sit her down and just talk some common sense to her. That did not happen so now she is sitting in jail.

I actually do not think the woman in the linked news story was actually doing any real “reporting” at all. I believe she had a personal issue with one of the undercover officers which may have been an obsessive romantic crush, and was acting out of a personal vendetta, which ended up getting her arrested, all her equipment and even her personal journals confiscated, and has ultimately landed her in a jail cell. A jail cell is the last place a real citizen journalist needs to be, because you cannot reflect and report on what is happening in media if you are locked up. You are silenced. This woman crossed all boundaries of common sense and she got herself silenced as a result.

=> First of all, harassment of any kind  is NOT actually reporting wethemedia1at all. Obsessing on one or more individuals with repeatedly taking personal photos, following them in your car, photographing their home, publishing their home street address without their knowledge or consent violates their own rights to privacy, and is in total contradiction to the VERY REASONS that citizen journalism exists. We write to provide the point of view of someone who observes what is taking already taking place and we reflect back to the news reader what was seen and observed. If the event taking place is deemed to be of interest and concern to the general public it is worth recording and writing about. Here is an example. I enter a cafe and see a police officer talking to a waitress, just having a casual chat. That is not newsworthy.

On another day I enter a cafe and see a police officer slapping a patron in the face. Another officer covers up his actions and threatens observers if they report what they saw. THAT would be newsworthy, but I would discreetly step outside and find a way to make notes on what I saw unnoticed. If the slapping escalated into a beating, I would try to find a way to get photos or video without putting myself in the line of vision of the officers doing the beating.

The first thing they would do if they saw me shooting video is come for me and my camera. These kinds of things are happening now.  I have several videos posted on alligatorfarm.wordpress.com under “Cops Gone Wild” of private citizens actually being arrested for taking photos or video of police officers.

useeit-ureportitThere is a very fine line being drawn between news reporting, and recording routine police activities with no real reason or purpose. This is fuzzy territory and people like the woman in the linked story really crossed those fuzzy places with what she was doing. A journalist’s job is now more treacherous than ever in the USA, and a citizen journalist’s work in the present atmosphere  can be quite nerve wracking.

=> Make your best judgment call on what is NEWS, what is NEWSWORTHY, and butt out of all the rest of it. I am tending towards being vigilant locally i.e. observing incidents of apparent police harassment of individuals who are doing nothing wrong in public places. However, many times there is a history behind what is being observed that would shed new light on what looks like harassment. Often it’s a policeman or policewoman who already knows the person and has had recent issues with that same person repeatedly. Unless you actually know the entire background on a situation, what you might observe in public and describe as harassment of a private individual by police is in fact an officer trying to move someone along in  – without incident  – order to avoid having an issue re-emerge which has taken place before.

9 times out of 10 these incidents have something to do with public drug use, public drunkenness, and / or publicly dealing drugs in plain sight. There is almost always a history behind situations where the same individual and the same police interaction take place over and over again.

=> Keep a safe distance away at least 15 to 20 yards distance when observing any event or potential altercation. Use your telephoto function discreetly for photo / video. Take cover behind a dense solid object like a concrete wall or a large tree if possible. Stay quiet and calm. safe-videoshooterLearn to become invisible as you observe and record. (It’s a shamanic thing.) This should not have to be explained, but for the record, all kinds of things can go horribly wrong for you if you are just standing too close to a police officer who is trying to deal with a person, an event, a situation or a potential situation.

The urge to get right up in someone’s face to record video and watch something “go down” is asking for real trouble. I would add that in the present tense atmosphere it would be quite foolish to be seen in public anywhere pointing a camera or video unit at a police officer for no particular reason. The trick, is do this unseen if you want to capture events of real newsworthiness as they occur. An officer eating his doughnut is not newsworthy. Use some common sense.

Rushing in to ask a police officer for his badge number in the middle of an altercation can turn ot to be "the good, the bad or the ugly."

Rushing in to ask a police officer for his badge number in the middle of an altercation can turn out to be "the good, the bad or the ugly."

=> Don’t try to be a “cowboy.” Be forewarned: If you march up to a police officer during a “situation” and “ask for his badge number” in the present mood and atmosphere of any town or city in America, you can expect to experience a surprising and legally unpleasant response. The police man you are addressing may just decide to “make your day”. Most often you are not going to get a badge number, instead you are going to get arrested or marked as a trouble making local for police. Think really hard before you choose to do this. People are being arrested, roughed up, handcuffed, interrogated, and even hauled away for “asking officers for their badge numbers”. I am not kidding. Better to cleverly stand behind a large tree, at a safe distance, get your video, post it to youtube.com for 2 billion people to have access to it, where it will make a bigger impact on reeling in out-of-control local law enforcement by public shaming, than to swagger up in the middle of a melee and demand the aggressing officer’s “badge number”.

=> Do not engage in public behaviors which will make you a “regular target” for aggressive, volatile, local police.
This is kind of similar to the rule of thumb for people who drive sports cars. If you are going to own one, don’t own a red one. In other words, DON’T MAKE YOURSELF A TARGET. I am continuously astonished at the stupidity of the young people who live in the region where I travel frequently. As the months go by, each time I return I see the same young homeless vagrants doing the same public behaviors repeatedly which inevitably get them roughed up by police. It reminds me of the wild feral child who acts out to get attention, only to be put into “time-out” over and over again for the acting out.

NEW ORLEANS TAPED BEATINGAdults now do this same behavior:  they “act out” in public to get attention. Apparently even really unwanted negative attention, like a 100 lb man being jumped on by 8 250 lb. police officers must constitute some kind of attention. I have seen this occur with the same man on several occasions. He is always doing the same negative behavior. He is an intellectually brilliant college aged man who has no common sense whatsoever. He will most likely be beaten to death by police officers one day. Which brings me to my next protocol:

=> Do not try to be a “bad ass” and brag that you intend to “take on the cops” in public the next time you see them.
This is the final and most utterly foolish behavior that I now watch young people doing in public (mostly men, but some young women too). It almost always begins with a young person being somewhat humiliated by several police officers in a public place, the person in question is either drunk, high, tipsy, mouthy, physically aggressive, and they get wheeled around, cuffed, pushed to the ground and wrestled into submission before they even realize they are out of line. They are too drunk or high TO BE COGNIZANT THAT THEY ARE OUT OF LINE. They end up being humiliated in front of their peers, and then vow to get back at the cops when they see them the next time. What do you suppose happens when “the next time” takes place?
Correct – they escalate sooner, more cops are called for backup, they are wrestled down faster, hauled away to jail – and now their face, name, behavior and where they live, and hang out are now WELL KNOWN to local police. Add to this the fact that during their drunken or high moment they actually vowed out loud to police and to other witnesses that they would “get back” at the cops who are restraining them, and they are actually stupid enough to VOW to fight back harder next time. This kind of talk in public is both a legal and potentially lethal nightmare for the braggart doing the “bad ass” talking. They have now talked their way into becoming HIGH visibility LOCAL TAREGTS FOR POLICE BRUTALITY AT A FUTURE TIME. That’s exactly how it starts. That is precisely what I observe taking place repeatedly which makes certain people stand out as potential targets for police to brutalize later. They taunt police, they swear revenge, they boast to their peers and even to strangers that they will beat the officers down “the next time” and so forth, and they may as well paint a red bull’s eye on their own backs and carry a sign that says: “I hate cops – come and beat me up now before I kill a cop.”

One would think that college males smart enough to attend classes and pass would be smart enough to know how to NOT become a police target. One would also assume that grown mature men in their 30s, 40s, and 50s would know how to NOT become a police target. One would be wrong. Failure to exercise common sense and good judgment in relation to local police law enforcement activities during any kind of encounter can now result in a lifetime of misery for locals who suddenly discover that they are now permanently unwanted HIGH PROFILE TARGETS OF THE LOCAL POLICE. Those who decide after an unhappy altercation that they want to “take on the law” the next time using their own foolish “cowboy style” acting out may end up ruining any peace they will ever have in their own local neighborhoods. Instead, exercising certain specific acts of restraint, remaining calm, refraining from excess verbosity, refusing to be provoked into vocal protests, refusing to be provoked into violent opposition, and choosing to NOT ENGAGE IN CERTAIN BEHAVIORS IN PUBLIC can save one’s reputation, privacy, peace, sanctity of person, even your job, and your future relations with everyone you know. Think before you act on impulse.

Perfect self control is the hallmark of the spiritually evolved human being. Jesus of Nazareth exercised perfect self control even when he was being absolutely brutalized by local authorities. He would expect no less from us. Absolute adherence to non-violence is the Way of the Path of the True Spiritual Warrior. it is also what Jesus would do.

DoD Rushes to Quelch US Army Major for Telling the Truth

16 Jul

Informed citizen journalists have known since last summer that Barack Obama is not a legal U.S. citizen. I first broke this story on my other blog last August 2008.  The Israeli Insider website had published hard evidence that his birth certificate was a fraud last july 2008. I practically begged US media outlets and newspapers to investigate the story. No one would touch it. They all had those secret illuminati guns to their heads you know, telling them what to say, do , and what to air about Obama.

So a  USA media black-out on the real facts about Barack Obama prevented enough voters from finding out the truth in time and he was elected. There had been a Philadephia democrat and veteran attorney who was also trying to build public support for a lawsuit prohibiting Obama’s campaign from going any further, but he threw in the towel after the election when it looked at the time like popular support for Obama would railroad his lawsuit, which was viable. He had a ton of evidence, including signed affadavits from alot of Obama’s relatives, stating they knew he was born in Kenya. His mother was too far along in her pregnancy to be allowed on the plane when the family tried to return to Hawaii. She was taken off the plane and Obama was born in Kenya. His birth name was different than his public name today.

Why does one suppose the US Department of Defense is so urgent to hush up one of their own, unless they know that he knows the truth? The bigger the truth, the greater the outrage and actions to be taken against it. That’s the illuminati way. So, you see, you can always gauge the level of truth in any given public event by the level of illuminati actions taken to suppress it.

And what we have here is a sledge hammer of fast actions taken by the DoD to squelch Major Stefan Cook and his lawsuit. Interesting, isn’t it? – CKH

Alligator Farm’s First Video Collection 7.2009

Wondering what billionaire USA media High Priestess Oprah Winfrey has been up to lately? Well, as if changing the course of human history by endorsing  false prophet Obama wasn’t enough to sate her thirst for global power, she has now founded a church. Yep.  “The Church of the New Earth” is based on the books of Oprah’s guru Eckhart Tolle, and it now boasts more than 5 million members.

Just what are these two alligators, the USA Christian media, and Oprah’s New Earth Church, at odds over? Such furor, such uproar. My guess is that it may have something to do with the dwindling coffers of many USA Christian churches, whose congregations are now so weary of being hammered with doctrines of fear, hate, hell, guilt and sin that they are just looking for a breath of fresh air somewhere.  ( Can I get an amen? ) And it certainly has not helped the Christian churches in America that at least 55% of the population wants them to STOP focusing on whether or not gays can marry and just FOCUS ON THEIR OWN FAMILIES instead. Ted Haggert. Ahem.

Is Tolle a bonafied spiritual teacher or, like Obama, a mass “oratorial NLP hypnotist and mass mind trance inducer”? Don’t they do some kind of mass trance as part of their church services? Just exactly what IS a mass trance?

Oh yeah, I get it. A mass trance is the same thing that Obama did to the nation when he would speak and the ladies would tear their blouses and weep, and young kids would beat their chests in affiliation, and hardened fossilized media talking heads like Glenn Beck would go gay for Obama and gush over the chill that ran up his leg when he heard him speak. Oh yeah. THAT”s what a mass trance is like. I get it.

Do you suppose if common folk knew that Barack Obama is a trained adept at something called “Neurolinguistic Programming” – a psychological control and mind control technique which emphasizes the use of “aggressive mental suggestions” delivered by specific voice intonations and inflections of speech, they might turn off that TV set when he starts up givin’ one of his “listen to me now and do what I say” speeches from the Oval Office?  It wasn’t just the intellectually vulnerable  ipod generation who voted by the gadzillions that got Obama elected – it was the complicit USA media and his ‘mass hypnosis’ oratorial skills using NLP.

Just exactly what is Oprah’s new church actually selling?  Every church everywhere is always selling something, and it usually has to do with MONEY and CONTROL, i. e.  Church of Scientology, Church of the Latter Day Saints, Church Universal and Triumphant (Elizabeth Claire Prophet’s former new age creation, which is now in tatters), Heaven’s Gate, The Family, Jim Jones’ People’s Temple, et al.

Has the cult of Oprah finally tipped the bucket of America’s tolerance for her various ambitions? Will she soon march her church members off into the  jungles of South Africa to build “the New Earth” –  leaving family members of cult-struck moms to sit weeping into TV dinners, wondering when mom will come home and cook some real food again?

Could this be why is American Christendom is so irate and up in arms over her new $church$? Is a mass $piritual awakening of stressed out Americans who are just disgusted with the Christian church, (although they have never stopped loving God, they just cannot stomach what the church sells along with it) who venture to read Eckhart Tolle’s books actually such a  BAD thing?

It all depends on whether we will soon see Oprah’s church members boarding planes bound for South Africa, or wearing pale apricot togas, ringing little bells in airport causeways, begging for more members and more money.  Stay tuned. I am watching this particular alligator with the keenest of interest.

===============================================

You just can’t make this stuff up folks. This video below came out about a year ago, right around the time that I figured out beyond all shadow of a doubt that Obama’s political career had something to do with the rise of the Antichrist.  I don’t usually like rap, but this is just darn eloquent.

Here is another one similar to it.

Just in case you did not know, CIA and NSA black ops in the US have now siphoned off more than 50 trillion dollars from usa taxpayers and CIA drug cartel operations since around 1970 and have used the wicked black cash to build an elaborate undergound tunnel and city system for the use of the Washington DC elites and military families when the 2012 pole shift hits the fan. The pentagon knows all about it. Oh by the way Russia is also building entire undergound cities for their elites, as is Norway. Norway is also storing seeds. Hmmm. Gosh. Seems like our governments forgot to tell us something. Hmm. Gosh. Wonder why all the major governments of the world now have telescopes pointed at the same spot in space. Wow. Even the Vatican has an observatory with it’s scopes pointed at the same spot. Gee. If you don’t know what I am talking about, you better read this web page and all it’s links from top to bottom. Then start praying like your life depended on it. Cause it does. – CKH See http://2012poleshift.wetpaint.com Here’s video footage of Norway’s undeground tunnel system, which they are building in secret. A few hardy souls with intestinal fortitude have posted news and videos about this on the web, I laud their courage. Pray for the people of this world. Here is another real alligator for you to gawk at: Now we all know by now that 9-11 was a false flag event carried out by New World Order operatives with the full knowledge and consent of the Bush crime family. Butt did you know that George W. Bush was such a loose cannon in front of TV cameras when he was speaking “unscripted” that he actually mentioned the bombs that had been pre-wired in the twin towers, (that took place the weekend before 9-11 under the pretense of upgrading security systems at the towers) where they had been placed right before 9-11. He actually accidentally admitted the whole thing in front of TV cameras, then just kept right on talking, too stupid to even realize what he had done. This is commonly called a “subconscious tell” in psychiatric circles. It happens when someone needs to tell the truth about something, but they cannot bring themselves to do it, so it kind of squirts out sideways as they appear to be talking about something else entirely.

Step right up and see it here first folks in the main pond of my Alligator Farm. Listen to George speak below, then tell me what you think he just said.

Marshall Masters is a scientist of noteworthy intelligence who runs a series of well documented websites which make a clear case that the arrival of Planet X Nibiru in 2012 poses a clear and present danger to human civilization. That is what all these secret undergound tunnels and cities, and the storing of seeds and all the covert astronomy is all about, just in case you have been idling away on a desert island for several years, and just washed back onto the shores of civilization. Here is Marshall’s February 2009 science report on video.
I suggest you gather the family round the hearth to watch this one.
This stuff ain’t for the faint of heart. See http://yowusa.com for more info and supporting free ebook downloads. See also
