Despite the Doom and Gloom Pt. 2: My 2012 Holiday Message

leadholiday2

2012 is coming to an end and, boy, was it a crazy one. Once again this year, I tried my best to bring you the one-of-a-kind information and analyses you can only find at Vigilant Citizen. I’ve always made it a point to prove that it is possible to write about the topics discussed on this site without being pushy, preachy, alarmist, hateful or completely delusional and I hope that I proved it again this year. While it is not always easy for me to stay on top of things and to write about some topics, it is nevertheless with great honor and pleasure that I do so. I’ve always enjoyed expressing myself through writing and, everyday, I thank God for the opportunity of reaching people while doing what I love. This website is truly a labor of love and the amazing feedback I receive daily from VC readers never fail to keep me motivated.

I am however not the only one who contributes to this site. This year again, the VC community came through with thousands of great comments and forum posts, enriching the site with a wealth of information and opinions. Due to the diverse nature of this site’s readership, there are often disagreements and heated debates but, when everything stays respectful, I consider this a very good thing. Opposing and confronting opinions has always been a healthy exercise that ultimately profits to everyone involved, so I’m all for it. What is truly important is that ideas and issues that are completely ignored by mass media are being discussed in a real and uncompromising matter. So I’d like to thank everyone who took the time to contribute to this site and to enlighten others, no matter the opinion.

I’d also like to give a special shout to the moderators of the VC Forums who did their best to keep the community striving and to Egersis who proofread dozens articles this year. Thank you all for your time and dedication.

That being said, this year also brought its fair share of problems and challenges. I had to deal with issues that made me realize that some people are actually trying to hurt my work and my credibility. I had to deal with heavy and sustained DDoS attacks that caused the site to be down for several days, attempts to hack the site, as well as threats and harassment by e-mail. Also, in what appear to be attempts at character assassination, I discovered that some people are spreading fabricated rumors about me on other websites and forums. As a lover of truth, reading outright lies about me is upsetting, but I guess that’s the price to pay for telling it like it is. I cannot control those who are trying to do me harm – and my only response to them is a quote from the immortal Johnny Cash:

Well you may throw your rock and hide your hand
Workin’ in the dark against your fellow man
But as sure as God made black and white
What’s done in the dark will be brought to the light

You can run on for a long time
Run on for a long time
Run on for a long time
Sooner or later God’ll cut you down
Sooner or later God’ll cut you down

Fortunately, I know that most readers of this site are discerning enough to realize that my only goal is to provide information based on research. I’ve always urged people to never unconditionally take my word and to look up everything for themselves. This site was never intended to provide “all of the truth” or “all of the answers” (I am still seeking the truth myself) but rather to be a starting point, an incitement to begin a quest for knowledge. My suggestion to true truth-seekers is to research information from several sources and to use your own mind and reasoning to come to your own conclusions. If you believe that you are more enlightened than others because you’ve started following another shepherd, the sad fact is that…you are still a sheep. I personally never wanted people to blindly follow me. Quite to the contrary, I am looking to encourage people to think for themselves. That’s what the world desperately needs right now.

Don’t Get Lost

Researching about the true motivations of the elite can become a disturbing and consuming exercise. It is easy to become angry, bitter and disgruntled about what is discovered. Yes, realizing that the elite is a sick, twisted and outright evil group is very unsettling and leads to lots of questioning. But, in the end, we must not allow ourselves to be sucked into “their” world and become obsessed with their culture of death. We must live our own lives to the fullest, according to our own values and, more importantly, we must never forget that life is still breathtakingly beautiful. I often say that for each minute one spends learning about the ugly truth in the world, one must spend five enjoying its beauty. If we become angry, bitter and depressed, we’ve lost and they won. It is not enough to know about their plans, we must carry out OUR plans. “They” are definitely trying to debase us from what is real, right, pure, good and authentic to make us accept their values, but we don’t have to accept it.

The greatest thing about being Vigilant Citizens is that we can recognize mass media BS, laugh at it, completely reject it and go on living the life we want to live. No obsessing about superficiality and materialism. No being scared to death by the news trying to push an agenda. No worshiping celebrities. Just real, basic, timeless values based on morals and principles – all concepts that are deemed uncool nowadays but that are nevertheless the roots of a strong person and of a strong community. “They” want to weaken these roots in order to make the masses more suggestible and manipulable. Strong values indeed cause people to say “NO, I won’t do anything for money; NO, I won’t neglect my family; NO, I won’t be in debt for materialistic crap; NO, I won’t fall for mass media lies”.

In the end, this is what VC is all about: Understanding the deceit in this world in order to avoid it. So, please after researching the truth about the elite, do not despair nor become bitter. Seize the moment, go outside, enjoy nature, breathe fresh air, spend time with your friends and family, cook a tasty meal, read a great book, play a musical instrument, follow your dreams and give a horse a great big slap on the ass because, despite the doom and gloom, life is still beautiful. In today’s world, slaves are chained through their minds. As easily as they can chain you with propaganda, you can break these chains with truth and vigilance. And then, you are free to do whatever you want.

So Happy Holidays to everyone and remember that, no matter how grim it might get, truth and righteousness will always prevail!

VC

I enjoy your site immensely. Not sure we agree about everything but who does? I think one thing I wish you'd consider is that a lot of these celebrities are doing this stuff specifically because it enrages certain people, usually religious people whom it's blatantly obvious, even to an atheist like me, they hate with a tremendous passion. While everyone else was getting excited about the Superbowl and the commercials…my first thought was actually I wonder what VC's going to say about Beyonce's halftime show, HA! I know for damn sure that article should be about a hundred times more… Read more »

Beautiful article! Thank you so much for what you do on your website!!! I discovered your website this past July, and I honestly have not looked at the world the same since. It has been very freeing to discover the "truth" about this evil world we live in. Many, many thanks for what you do!!

I really appreciate this post, VC, particularly about not getting lost and seizing the moment. It’s easy to get depressed by this knowledge (and feeling alone, thinking that you’re the only one who believes it), though at the same time it’s empowering. It’s good to be reminded that despite all the shit that’s going on, yeah, life IS beautiful.
Keep up the good work!

hmmm believe it or not I haven't been in Disneyland because of VC's site. I was never keen on disneyland however I was planning to visit Disneyland Paris for 3-4 days maximum and decided to abandon the idea. Furthermore, I found more sites concerning W Disney and Disneyland and I thought to myself there must be an element of truth. That was in February 2010. So thank you for opening my eyes regarding W Disney and his magic.

Holy cow. That's all I can say. I found this site today thru a FB page that is relatively new and have spent my entire Sunday opening my eyes. I am saddened, bewildered, and appalled, but now aware. Thanks (?) lol.

Thanks VC another well written inspiring piece and I was nodding the Whole time. Since the first article you've ALWAYS urged us to do research ourselves. That's something I've admired you for and I'm working on teaching my sister the same thing. So many people just listen to one person and accept everything b/c it's easier, but that's the easiest way to get tricked and trip up. Thanks for everything you've done, and I hope this site stays up until the end of time! This was home for me for the past two years. The things I learned about the… Read more »

Thanks VC for being a light in the dark, a place where some of us can go to not feel crazy. God bless you and yours.

Thank you. I didnt like to read much until I came across your site. I can’t image the time and effort you have to put out just to keep up in today’s world. Seems like everyone’s doing something .. Coming out from the shadows now I guess. I can’t wait for your review of Beyonces Half time show during superbowl!

Yes, it is certainly easy to get lost these days… Maybe too easy, I'm afraid… But as long as we stand firm, and believe in the sovereign goodness and love of God, and the deep-seated inner goodness and willingness of man, and keep following the rightious path that has been made for us who know the real truth, the True Light and the absolute power of the Light and the Good side, we shall prevail and endure. Becuase if we stray from that rightious path, and let us be led astray and allow ourselves to fall prey to and become… Read more »

"give a horse a great big slap on the ass"

I don´t agree with that part!

Well said VC. I just started looking at your site & I think you have a good thing going here. I really like how down to earth, and straight to the point you are. Getting the info without the theatrics. Remembering the truth is good and that everything will be ok in the end. I was reading my Bible tonight and I came across this verse in Isaiah that really spoke to me. I’ve been in some fear lately. I wouldn’t have fear at ALL if it was just me but I have a 2 yr old son to protect… Read more »

You shouldn't have fear about the child. The child is only 2 and an angel, it will be absolutely fine if something happens to it. It will have eternal life. The other ones, the illuminated, should live in fear as there is nothing that could pull them out of the hellhole they'll probably spend eternity. The prince of darkness has promised them a good place in hell. Deluded people who can't see the woods from the trees. They'll be burning forever with worms coming out of every hole of their bodies. No prince of darkness can change the set of… Read more »

Just something I’m throwing out there, I noticed how here on this website christians and athiests get along. I don’t know why in real life we have to argue but I guess that’s what makes us human. If we all agreed on everything we’d be nothing more than robots. I’m not saying go kill someone becaue you disagree but instead have a friendly debate if things start to get heated then let the conversation go. This website kind of also reminds me of the buddhas teachings and how it teaches you to open your eyes. Thank you to whoever wrote… Read more »

Thank you VC, you were part of a huge shift in my life in the past few years I realised how stupid it was to value materialistic stuff and let TV and the press rule the way you think, what you should look like and behave! I stopped watching TV and I never open a fashion magazine again. I am still surprised how many adverts I used to be exposed to and as a "girly girl" how that affected the way I felt about myself and my life, like getting that new perfume or renewing all my closet for the… Read more »

We have similar values and changes in life.However…
I wold not decide weather to have kids or not.Scripture is clear on this regard and will of God still higher than sinister plots of darkness.
We had prophetic utterance-as soon as the world will start to crumble Lord will guide and protect His own miraculously and supernaturally.Children included.
