Aquaponics For Outrageous Plants!    Survive The End Days!

Your Government Has Betrayed YOU! - UN Troops in the USA NOW!

You pay taxes to build roads, fight fires, and educate kids.  FALSE.  You pay taxes because if you didn't you'd be arrested through violent means by our Evil Jew Shadow Government, aka "Govern = Control" and "Ment = Mind" or "Mind Control".

The truth of the matter is that we do not need a government?  We do not need to be "Governed".  Barack Obama is a pussy infiltrator and quite possibly The Anti-Christ who has deliberately destroyed the United States of America as demanded by Evil Luciferian, Zionist, Jesuit, Nazi, Communist and Eugenicist globalists, aka Evil Jew Men.  Government was created by obscenely wealthy people for the main reason of being able to tax ordinary citizens with a privately run ponzi scheme cleverly named "The Federal Reserve" to fool Americans into thinking it was a government organization because they used the word "Federal".   This was in itself misleading and a huge crime against the American people.  Then the power went to their heads, allowing them to use their fake power of governement over the people, but always assuring the people they were in charge of government and free by letting them vote, when truly they have never had much of a choice when it came to elected politicians since the media corporations are owned by the same evil Jew men, nor have Americans ever been truly free.  Similarly, and during the U.S. Presidential Election, Hillary Clinton was getting all sorts of media attention to make her appear popular and close in polls when compared to Donald Trump.  It was totally obvioius that the Zionist owned and controlled mainstream media had chosen demonic pedophile Hillary Clinton because she was willing to complete their evil 30 year plan and remove sovereignty from America in preparation for a totalitarian global government.  The government has never done anything but lie to their people and try to control the minds of Americans by putting them in the Alpha state through Satanic television, hence the meaning of the word "Government".  "Govern" means "Control" in Latin and "Ment" has the deeply hidden meaning of "Mind".  "Control Mind" or Govern Ment"  Despite the deceipt, Donald Trump won the presidency but is under constant attack by EVIL JEW MEN, Luciferians, Nazis, Communists, Eugenicists and Jesuits.

I am waiting for non-mind-controlled citizens employed by the police, military, CIA, FBI, DHS, NSA, FDA, FAA and many other corrupt government organizations and corporations to do their job and use force to arrest these evil reptilian controlled and demonically possessed government puppets who continue committing crimes against humanity, especially pedophilia, and stripping Americans of their sovereignty, God-given rights and civil liberties. Those who are under mind-control think we are either insane or joking when we use terms like "reptilian, demonic and possessed" by letting out a mind-controlled chuckle, and then saying "That's ridiculous! You are a conspiracy theorist! or You need help."  Believe the ones who are awakened and for as long as it takes you to figure it all out on your own from the TRUTHFUL resources we've provided and the plethora of truth media on the internet, while you still can.  The mainstream media outlets are freeaking out because we have exposed them for what they are, Satanic Pedophiles and puppets of the Luciferian Freemasons and New World Order.  There is a reason millions of people world-wide have actually proven these people are demonic reptilians possessed by demons and are actual clones that have replaced the original body, sometimes with up to 14 clones, since the clones don't last forever.  If this is difficult for you to grasp you are urged to believe it.  John Kerry is on Clone 14.  He died a long time ago. Hillary Clinton is on clone number 4 as of today September 28, 2016.  The United Nations is a good example of where these demons hang out.  America is in grave danger until people start wearing their medals, which will repel evil, and turn their attention away from demonic Hollywood (Holy Wood) and towards Jesus Christ, who has promised us all Salvation if we commit to a Pure and Holy life.  It's the best deal these globalists scumbags are going to get and I pity them for not seeking the Lord right now and repenting for their years of Mortal sin while they still can.  I pity them because they are truly lost souls that have been overpowered by evil entities, or demons, aka Reptilians.  You can help expose their evil and hopefully awaken these lost souls.  Before you dismiss this information let me just say one more absolutely truthful statement.  Everything you think you know about the world, everything you have been taught or indoctrinated to believe is upside down, backwards and inside out and until you do the research for yourself or allow myself and hundreds of thousands of other people show you the way, you will continue to be lost and will never awaken.  Lord Jesus Christ said "My people are destroyed for lack of knowledge: because thou hast rejected knowledge, I will also reject thee, that thou shalt be no priest to me: seeing thou hast forgotten the law of thy God, I will also forget thy children. King James Version (KJV) Hosea 4:6."  You are urged to seek the Holy Spirit and let Him guide you to the truth about the evil world and false reality you have been programmed to live in.  If you don't know how to help win this spiritual war don't worry about that.  Just ask, have FAITH, and you will be guided accordingly.   The following list contains some of these evil Jew men that may or may not be alive.  However, the Jews with offices inside the World Trade Center Twin Towers arr all living because they weren't in the buildings the day of the mini-nuke invasion.  JEWS ARE RESPONSIBLE FOR 9/11, JUST LIKE JEWS ARE RESPONSIBLE FOR THE HOLOCAUST.   Erase every movie you've ever seen about the Holocaust.  It is all an Evil Jew Hoax.

The world is a magical place full of Constitutional-Destroying-Zionists, Luciferians, Jesuits, Nazis, Communists, Eugenicists and modern day Liberal retards just waiting to use the mind-controlled fascist phrase "politically correct" whenever the truth is spoken. Most people, especially Zionists and Liberals don't really want the truth. They just want constant reassurance that the evil ways they believe in are the truth and to make the entire world believe what they're doing is the truth through mind-control via "OWNERSHIP & CONTROL" or all industries, organizations, religions and corporations.  The industries that have had a direct effect on human beings of the world are the "media, entertainment, medical and pharmaceutical industries", primarily, or perhaps I should put the Military Industrial Complex before any of these, since so many people have been wrongfully murdered for betraying the globalist agenda, evil Jew men, and miliary industrial complex, or murdered in large numbers through strategically corrupt industry leaders, "real" mind-control and "disease" forced on society via chemtrails, vaccinations, pesticides, food and pharmaceuticals, which is where the term "Zombie" comes from.  A Zombie is someone who is "blindly supporting another person because they appear to be the same race or having the same genitalia". It would never even occur to these people that an extremely wealthy group of people may be planning to control the entire human population, and that is precisely what is happening.  We are headed for the mass murder of millions of Americans in our lifetime if these globalists are not stopped.  Currently, as of April 3rd, 2017 these EVIL JEW MEN are cornered and squirming to cause all sorts of chaos, including a nuclear war.  When backed into a corner there is literally nothing they would not do to defeat humanity.

This coming election on November 8th, 2016, despite my firm belief that votes don't mean a damn thing and despite the idea that non-corrupt auditors supposedly audit each election using the same identical process in the same secure manner, will determine the collapse of America into either a fully tyrannical oligarchy or become an opportunity for armed citizens to acknowledge the degree of corruption in the United States Government, and throughout the world and finally retaliate against the evil-to-the-core United States Government.  However, the U.S. Governement realized American troops may awaken and refuse to disarm and shoot Americans so they actually brought into the USA, endless trainloads of UN combat vehicles and 353,000 UN troops to defend the U.S. Government from awakened U.S. Military Troops.  This evil that these demonic Luciferians keep exposing us to only strengthens with each passing day of complacency and deniability, which brings out the worst of all corrupt people in the world who don't live by "the truth", won't resist evil, and are now even welcoming it, under the 666 beast system. We must always live in truth to fight back with the united power of all good people, people of light not darkness, people who attempt to live their lives as Jesus Christ would.  Each and every organization in the following list below needs to be re-evaluated immediately for corruption and we MUST WEED OUT THE CORRUPTION BY HIRING ONLY GOOD, HONEST, PEOPLE and set standards to prevent the penetration of evil in every organization.  For instance, the Ford Motor company is owned by 4 extremely wealthy Luciferian 33rd Degree Masons. These Luciferians have infiltrated every single corner of the planet and have hijacked the United States Government. The lives of American citizens are in grave danger, and nobody is listening.  NOTE:  THE EMF INSIDE FORD CARS IS OFF THE METER!  THESE CARS WILL GIVE YOU CANCER!

The FDA is not to be trusted under any circumstances and has to go, but their knowledge must stay. The duties and mission of all government organizations that have anything to do with the welfare of human beings must be thoroughly evaluated for the presence of an over-powering-evil that harms rather than helps people, like most government agencies. They must either be worked back into society as private non-governmental organizations or destroyed, including the FAA, EPA, CIA, FBI, DHS, FDA, TSA and many others. The Federal Reserve is finished. The CIA is of no benefit to the security and welfare of human beings. They are traitors!  The CIA serves the evil purpose of being a mindless killing machine only. Currently, a huge number of FBI agents are under Reptilian Possession. The list below is an important link to all extremely wealthy pedophile old men, and anyone with ties to secret societies, and shapeshifting reptilians, that are attempting to permanently enslave humanity. They can either surrender and repent now or rot in the eternal flames of Hell when Nibiru cleanses the Earth of all evil men and women who haven't repented. RAISE YOUR AWARENESS! and LOVE VIBRATION!  That is how we begin defeating all of the evil and corruption in Government and every square inch of the planet. Something tells me it takes 3600 years for mankind to screw-up the world, due to Nibiru's eliptical orbit of 3600 years.  We can stop this gruesome chain of historical events right now by becoming self-aware individuals who don't tolerate tyranny and evil but search and display truth in every single life situation, thereby preserving the lives of "good people".  Don't let history repeat itself, which it will do as time has proven.  There is no reason for past evils of the world to be repeated if people remain vigilant to their cause, "The Resistance". Join "The Resistance" Today and for God's sake, WAKE PEOPLE UP!  That is the purpose of Michael Savage, Dave Hodges, Alex Jones, David Icke, David Wilcox, Mark Passio, and many others, to get people involved.  Without replicating what they do on a large scale, our attempt to wake up all worldly citizens will be a futile attempt and the United States is in grave danger.

The world is a magical place full of Constitutional-Destroying-Zionists, Luciferians, Jesuits, Nazis, Communists, Eugenicists and modern day Liberal retards just waiting to use the mind-controlled fascist phrase "politically correct" whenever the truth is spoken. Most people, especially Zionists and Liberals don't really want the truth. They just want constant reassurance that the evil ways they believe in are the truth and to make the entire world believe what they're doing is the truth through mind-control via "OWNERSHIP & CONTROL" or all industries, organizations, religions and corporations.  The industries that have had a direct effect on human beings of the world are the "media, entertainment, medical and pharmaceutical industries", primarily, or perhaps I should put the Military Industrial Complex before any of these, since so many people have been wrongfully murdered for betraying the globalist agenda, evil Jew men, and miliary industrial complex, or murdered in large numbers through strategically corrupt industry leaders, "real" mind-control and "disease" forced on society via chemtrails, vaccinations, pesticides, food and pharmaceuticals, which is where the term "Zombie" comes from.  A Zombie is someone who is "blindly supporting another person because they appear to be the same race or having the same genitalia". It would never even occur to these people that an extremely wealthy group of people may be planning to control the entire human population, and that is precisely what is happening.  We are headed for the mass murder of millions of Americans in our lifetime if these globalists are not stopped.  Currently, as of April 3rd, 2017 these EVIL JEW MEN are cornered and squirming to cause all sorts of chaos, including a nuclear war.  When backed into a corner there is literally nothing they would not do to defeat humanity.

This coming election on November 8th, 2016, despite my firm belief that votes don't mean a damn thing and despite the idea that non-corrupt auditors supposedly audit each election using the same identical process in the same secure manner, will determine the collapse of America into either a fully tyrannical oligarchy or become an opportunity for armed citizens to acknowledge the degree of corruption in the United States Government, and throughout the world and finally retaliate against the evil-to-the-core United States Government.  However, the U.S. Governement realized American troops may awaken and refuse to disarm and shoot Americans so they actually brought into the USA, endless trainloads of UN combat vehicles and 353,000 UN troops to defend the U.S. Government from awakened U.S. Military Troops.  This evil that these demonic Luciferians keep exposing us to only strengthens with each passing day of complacency and deniability, which brings out the worst of all corrupt people in the world who don't live by "the truth", won't resist evil, and are now even welcoming it, under the 666 beast system. We must always live in truth to fight back with the united power of all good people, people of light not darkness, people who attempt to live their lives as Jesus Christ would.  Each and every organization in the following list below needs to be re-evaluated immediately for corruption and we MUST WEED OUT THE CORRUPTION BY HIRING ONLY GOOD, HONEST, PEOPLE and set standards to prevent the penetration of evil in every organization.  For instance, the Ford Motor company is owned by 4 extremely wealthy Luciferian 33rd Degree Masons. These Luciferians have infiltrated every single corner of the planet and have hijacked the United States Government. The lives of American citizens are in grave danger, and nobody is listening.  NOTE:  THE EMF INSIDE FORD CARS IS OFF THE METER!  THESE CARS WILL GIVE YOU CANCER!

The FDA is not to be trusted under any circumstances and has to go, but their knowledge must stay. The duties and mission of all government organizations that have anything to do with the welfare of human beings must be thoroughly evaluated for the presence of an over-powering-evil that harms rather than helps people, like most government agencies. They must either be worked back into society as private non-governmental organizations or destroyed, including the FAA, EPA, CIA, FBI, DHS, FDA, TSA and many others. The Federal Reserve is finished. The CIA is of no benefit to the security and welfare of human beings. They are traitors!  The CIA serves the evil purpose of being a mindless killing machine only. Currently, a huge number of FBI agents are under Reptilian Possession. The list below is an important link to all extremely wealthy pedophile old men, and anyone with ties to secret societies, and shapeshifting reptilians, that are attempting to permanently enslave humanity. They can either surrender and repent now or rot in the eternal flames of Hell when Nibiru cleanses the Earth of all evil men and women who haven't repented. RAISE YOUR AWARENESS! and LOVE VIBRATION!  That is how we begin defeating all of the evil and corruption in Government and every square inch of the planet. Something tells me it takes 3600 years for mankind to screw-up the world, due to Nibiru's eliptical orbit of 3600 years.  We can stop this gruesome chain of historical events right now by becoming self-aware individuals who don't tolerate tyranny and evil but search and display truth in every single life situation, thereby preserving the lives of "good people".  Don't let history repeat itself, which it will do as time has proven.  There is no reason for past evils of the world to be repeated if people remain vigilant to their cause, "The Resistance". Join "The Resistance" Today and for God's sake, WAKE PEOPLE UP!  That is the purpose of Michael Savage, Dave Hodges, Alex Jones, David Icke, David Wilcox, Mark Passio, and many others, to get people involved.  Without replicating what they do on a large scale, our attempt to wake up all worldly citizens will be a futile attempt and the United States is in grave danger.

The world is a magical place full of Constitutional-Destroying-Zionists, Luciferians, Jesuits, Nazis, Communists, Eugenicists and modern day Liberal retards just waiting to use the mind-controlled fascist phrase "politically correct" whenever the truth is spoken. Most people, especially Zionists and Liberals don't really want the truth. They just want constant reassurance that the evil ways they believe in are the truth and to make the entire world believe what they're doing is the truth through mind-control via "OWNERSHIP & CONTROL" or all industries, organizations, religions and corporations.  The industries that have had a direct effect on human beings of the world are the "media, entertainment, medical and pharmaceutical industries", primarily, or perhaps I should put the Military Industrial Complex before any of these, since so many people have been wrongfully murdered for betraying the globalist agenda, evil Jew men, and miliary industrial complex, or murdered in large numbers through strategically corrupt industry leaders, "real" mind-control and "disease" forced on society via chemtrails, vaccinations, pesticides, food and pharmaceuticals, which is where the term "Zombie" comes from.  A Zombie is someone who is "blindly supporting another person because they appear to be the same race or having the same genitalia". It would never even occur to these people that an extremely wealthy group of people may be planning to control the entire human population, and that is precisely what is happening.  We are headed for the mass murder of millions of Americans in our lifetime if these globalists are not stopped.  Currently, as of April 3rd, 2017 these EVIL JEW MEN are cornered and squirming to cause all sorts of chaos, including a nuclear war.  When backed into a corner there is literally nothing they would not do to defeat humanity.

This coming election on November 8th, 2016, despite my firm belief that votes don't mean a damn thing and despite the idea that non-corrupt auditors supposedly audit each election using the same identical process in the same secure manner, will determine the collapse of America into either a fully tyrannical oligarchy or become an opportunity for armed citizens to acknowledge the degree of corruption in the United States Government, and throughout the world and finally retaliate against the evil-to-the-core United States Government.  However, the U.S. Governement realized American troops may awaken and refuse to disarm and shoot Americans so they actually brought into the USA, endless trainloads of UN combat vehicles and 353,000 UN troops to defend the U.S. Government from awakened U.S. Military Troops.  This evil that these demonic Luciferians keep exposing us to only strengthens with each passing day of complacency and deniability, which brings out the worst of all corrupt people in the world who don't live by "the truth", won't resist evil, and are now even welcoming it, under the 666 beast system. We must always live in truth to fight back with the united power of all good people, people of light not darkness, people who attempt to live their lives as Jesus Christ would.  Each and every organization in the following list below needs to be re-evaluated immediately for corruption and we MUST WEED OUT THE CORRUPTION BY HIRING ONLY GOOD, HONEST, PEOPLE and set standards to prevent the penetration of evil in every organization.  For instance, the Ford Motor company is owned by 4 extremely wealthy Luciferian 33rd Degree Masons. These Luciferians have infiltrated every single corner of the planet and have hijacked the United States Government. The lives of American citizens are in grave danger, and nobody is listening.  NOTE:  THE EMF INSIDE FORD CARS IS OFF THE METER!  THESE CARS WILL GIVE YOU CANCER!

The FDA is not to be trusted under any circumstances and has to go, but their knowledge must stay. The duties and mission of all government organizations that have anything to do with the welfare of human beings must be thoroughly evaluated for the presence of an over-powering-evil that harms rather than helps people, like most government agencies. They must either be worked back into society as private non-governmental organizations or destroyed, including the FAA, EPA, CIA, FBI, DHS, FDA, TSA and many others. The Federal Reserve is finished. The CIA is of no benefit to the security and welfare of human beings. They are traitors!  The CIA serves the evil purpose of being a mindless killing machine only. Currently, a huge number of FBI agents are under Reptilian Possession. The list below is an important link to all extremely wealthy pedophile old men, and anyone with ties to secret societies, and shapeshifting reptilians, that are attempting to permanently enslave humanity. They can either surrender and repent now or rot in the eternal flames of Hell when Nibiru cleanses the Earth of all evil men and women who haven't repented. RAISE YOUR AWARENESS! and LOVE VIBRATION!  That is how we begin defeating all of the evil and corruption in Government and every square inch of the planet. Something tells me it takes 3600 years for mankind to screw-up the world, due to Nibiru's eliptical orbit of 3600 years.  We can stop this gruesome chain of historical events right now by becoming self-aware individuals who don't tolerate tyranny and evil but search and display truth in every single life situation, thereby preserving the lives of "good people".  Don't let history repeat itself, which it will do as time has proven.  There is no reason for past evils of the world to be repeated if people remain vigilant to their cause, "The Resistance". Join "The Resistance" Today and for God's sake, WAKE PEOPLE UP!  That is the purpose of Michael Savage, Dave Hodges, Alex Jones, David Icke, David Wilcox, Mark Passio, and many others, to get people involved.  Without replicating what they do on a large scale, our attempt to wake up all worldly citizens will be a futile attempt and the United States is in grave danger.

The world is a magical place full of Constitutional-Destroying-Zionists, Luciferians, Jesuits, Nazis, Communists, Eugenicists and modern day Liberal retards just waiting to use the mind-controlled fascist phrase "politically correct" whenever the truth is spoken. Most people, especially Zionists and Liberals don't really want the truth. They just want constant reassurance that the evil ways they believe in are the truth and to make the entire world believe what they're doing is the truth through mind-control via "OWNERSHIP & CONTROL" or all industries, organizations, religions and corporations.  The industries that have had a direct effect on human beings of the world are the "media, entertainment, medical and pharmaceutical industries", primarily, or perhaps I should put the Military Industrial Complex before any of these, since so many people have been wrongfully murdered for betraying the globalist agenda, evil Jew men, and miliary industrial complex, or murdered in large numbers through strategically corrupt industry leaders, "real" mind-control and "disease" forced on society via chemtrails, vaccinations, pesticides, food and pharmaceuticals, which is where the term "Zombie" comes from.  A Zombie is someone who is "blindly supporting another person because they appear to be the same race or having the same genitalia". It would never even occur to these people that an extremely wealthy group of people may be planning to control the entire human population, and that is precisely what is happening.  We are headed for the mass murder of millions of Americans in our lifetime if these globalists are not stopped.  Currently, as of April 3rd, 2017 these EVIL JEW MEN are cornered and squirming to cause all sorts of chaos, including a nuclear war.  When backed into a corner there is literally nothing they would not do to defeat humanity.

This coming election on November 8th, 2016, despite my firm belief that votes don't mean a damn thing and despite the idea that non-corrupt auditors supposedly audit each election using the same identical process in the same secure manner, will determine the collapse of America into either a fully tyrannical oligarchy or become an opportunity for armed citizens to acknowledge the degree of corruption in the United States Government, and throughout the world and finally retaliate against the evil-to-the-core United States Government.  However, the U.S. Governement realized American troops may awaken and refuse to disarm and shoot Americans so they actually brought into the USA, endless trainloads of UN combat vehicles and 353,000 UN troops to defend the U.S. Government from awakened U.S. Military Troops.  This evil that these demonic Luciferians keep exposing us to only strengthens with each passing day of complacency and deniability, which brings out the worst of all corrupt people in the world who don't live by "the truth", won't resist evil, and are now even welcoming it, under the 666 beast system. We must always live in truth to fight back with the united power of all good people, people of light not darkness, people who attempt to live their lives as Jesus Christ would.  Each and every organization in the following list below needs to be re-evaluated immediately for corruption and we MUST WEED OUT THE CORRUPTION BY HIRING ONLY GOOD, HONEST, PEOPLE and set standards to prevent the penetration of evil in every organization.  For instance, the Ford Motor company is owned by 4 extremely wealthy Luciferian 33rd Degree Masons. These Luciferians have infiltrated every single corner of the planet and have hijacked the United States Government. The lives of American citizens are in grave danger, and nobody is listening.  NOTE:  THE EMF INSIDE FORD CARS IS OFF THE METER!  THESE CARS WILL GIVE YOU CANCER!

The FDA is not to be trusted under any circumstances and has to go, but their knowledge must stay. The duties and mission of all government organizations that have anything to do with the welfare of human beings must be thoroughly evaluated for the presence of an over-powering-evil that harms rather than helps people, like most government agencies. They must either be worked back into society as private non-governmental organizations or destroyed, including the FAA, EPA, CIA, FBI, DHS, FDA, TSA and many others. The Federal Reserve is finished. The CIA is of no benefit to the security and welfare of human beings. They are traitors!  The CIA serves the evil purpose of being a mindless killing machine only. Currently, a huge number of FBI agents are under Reptilian Possession. The list below is an important link to all extremely wealthy pedophile old men, and anyone with ties to secret societies, and shapeshifting reptilians, that are attempting to permanently enslave humanity. They can either surrender and repent now or rot in the eternal flames of Hell when Nibiru cleanses the Earth of all evil men and women who haven't repented. RAISE YOUR AWARENESS! and LOVE VIBRATION!  That is how we begin defeating all of the evil and corruption in Government and every square inch of the planet. Something tells me it takes 3600 years for mankind to screw-up the world, due to Nibiru's eliptical orbit of 3600 years.  We can stop this gruesome chain of historical events right now by becoming self-aware individuals who don't tolerate tyranny and evil but search and display truth in every single life situation, thereby preserving the lives of "good people".  Don't let history repeat itself, which it will do as time has proven.  There is no reason for past evils of the world to be repeated if people remain vigilant to their cause, "The Resistance". Join "The Resistance" Today and for God's sake, WAKE PEOPLE UP!  That is the purpose of Michael Savage, Dave Hodges, Alex Jones, David Icke, David Wilcox, Mark Passio, and many others, to get people involved.  Without replicating what they do on a large scale, our attempt to wake up all worldly citizens will be a futile attempt and the United States is in grave danger.
