Despite the Doom and Gloom Part III: My 2013 Holiday Message



At the beginning of 2013, I told myself: “This year should be interesting”. Well, I was wrong. The word “interesting” was not an appropriate word to describe 2013, even if it was meant sarcastically. Looking back at the events that happened this year, the best word I can think of is “foul”. 2013 started in the aftermath of the Sandy Hook shooting and things only got fouler.

In 2013, the world discovered the mind-boggling extent of government surveillance by the NSA. Mainstream news reported what “alternative” news were reporting for years: The NSA is an ever-expanding, Big Brotherish monster that collects and archives the personal data of all U.S. citizens, and pretty much everyone else too. Although these revelations did not cause much visible outrage, it was a gigantic cold shower that fell on freedom-loving people across the world. Everything that “paranoid conspiracy theorists” were claiming was true – and then some. Faith in freedom and democracy is fading like the ink on the Bill of Rights.

In order to forget these depressing facts, the masses turned to mind-numbing entertainment, the same way a wounded person turns to pain-numbing medication. And who was the most influential figure in the entertainment world this year? Miley Cyrus. Yup. That’s how foul 2013 was. Damn Hannah-Montana-turned-MK-sex-kitten was the most influential person in entertainment. But there were plenty of other events that proved that the elite Agenda is becoming too obvious to ignore.

Throughout the year, I attempted to decode and analyze the various events, videos, movies, and images that were thrown at us by mass media. By analyzing specific bits of media, I try to highlight their inherent manipulation and to help readers paint a much broader picture of what is happening in the world. Mass media is propaganda – but it is not trying to sell you on an ideology or a political view. It goes much deeper than that. It is about affecting the mind, the body, and the soul. It is about turning humanity into a debased, confused, and malleable mass of lost souls. It is about exposing and desensitizing minds to foul aberrations. It is about selling demoralization disguised as empowerment. It is about turning disgusting things such as pedophilia into something normal. It is about making you scared, insecure and unsatisfied. In short, mass media is poison. And that poison is everywhere.

“Damn VC, your holiday message is depressing :(“

I’m sorry. I really am. But even if my assessment is depressing, I am not depressed. And you shouldn’t be neither. Why? Because, although everything I described is horrible, it is all the result of a fake, artificial creation. The goal of mass media is to amplify things to create the illusion of importance. It is meant to manipulate and it works best when the subjects do not even realize that they are being manipulated. But we do know. Vigilant citizens around the world know that this is all just noise, meaningless noise meant to disrupt our thought process. Thankfully, we can shut that noise off and banish it from our minds.

Just because something is communicated to us doesn’t mean we need to accept it. In fact, we don’t even need to listen to it. The System needs us to exist, but we don’t need it. Furthermore, as we recognize the foulness of the System, we must be wise enough not to “feed” it further with our fear, anger, or hate. For our own sake, we must turn our backs to it completely and head towards what is true and pure. We must devote our lives to the things that make us happy, healthy, and complete. As I try to point out every year, we are made to enjoy nature, the company of our loved ones, and to stimulate our minds.

In a world that wants us to be angry, bitter, selfish and vile, I realized that the truest form of rebellion is uncompromising righteousness. In this day and age, I believe that a true rebel does not run the streets with a weapon yelling stuff. True rebels live the life they believe is right, no matter the consequences. Those in power do not fear some random person with a weapon. They can easily control that. Those in power fear those that are not corruptible, not buy-able, not brainwash-able, and not scare-able. And that is what being a Vigilant Citizen is all about.

This year again, I’d like to thank all of you for your incredible support. Thank you for taking the time to read my articles; Thank you for commenting on every article; Thank you for sending me heart-warming messages, symbolic pics, and interesting links; Thank you for submitting articles in the VC Community and thank you for spreading the word. We are making a difference and the world is taking notice. Happy holidays to you and yours.

I know this is late, but I thank you for this! I have been depressed over what the world has become..and evertime I turn on the radio or tv…all I hear or see is EVIL or something dealing with witchcraft! And what's up with this one eye thing? What does it mean? Anyway, I suggest we all turn to the Holy Bible, King James version for comfort. My grandmother told me to always read the Psalms when times are bad. She also used to say that she thought I'd live to see the "end."

i figured this stuff out a while back but I appreciate you making something of your self and creating this message for all people to see. Remember everybody teach your children what you have learned and don't get your thought process interrupted. Nothing is set in stone, we can change the future but our children hold the key.

Thank you for spending the time to do this and to enlighten us.
I am enlightened by this knowledge. I will live my life without the negative media. "As I try to point out every year, we are made to enjoy nature, the company of our loved ones, and to stimulate our minds." This quote reminds me of the Fahrenheit 451 and Clarisse McClellan who probably would say the same thing. It seem to me that our world is putting up its walls of mass media and closing off communication.

Absolutely love you VC!

You changed my life VC. I can't thank you enough for what you've made clear to me. My first awakening was becoming a Christian; the second, understanding the symbolism and purposes of the media. Now I am free to live an aware, righteous and peaceful life. Keep doing what you're doing, and we can all make a lasting difference in the wrestle for souls on this earth.


Echoing the sentiments of many, I thoroughly enjoy your articles. I especially like that there is not a trace of any agenda one way or the other. Often, those who want to educate and open our eyes to the worlds evil, do so through the means of some dogma.

I happened along your site when I was bored at work one day and decided to look up a very disturbing movie I had viewed the night before…Black Swan. I had not connected the dots like this before, but being from a religious background allowed me to reactivate a vast archive of prior knowledge. I have been a loyal follower ever since.

Blessings and prosperity are my wish for VC and your readers in 2014!

BRAVO! Man your words on this end of year post are so profound! Before I found your site I had been sensing over the last two years that the media "propaganda" machine had gone into some kind of crazy overdrive…to me it seemed there was an "agenda" that was different from past years. The blatant "satanic, occult " imagery is in your face everywhere. Yet so many seem to not see it labeling it trendy or just conspiracy hype… but for me the sense that something was going on simply persisted. I had been reading elsewhere about the whole "one eye.. Illuminati" thing with skepticism because others present the topic with such irrationality. Then I stumbled unto your site last year and the pieces of the puzzle came together. Your ability to analyse the symbols and to simply present the facts logically is what's kept me coming back. All I… Read more »

a form of manipulation they instill is to acknowledge that the ones who are doing this are "elite". they are instilling a sense of inferiority in others, a false sense of inferiority to keep them below.

"The truest form of rebellion is uncomprimised righteousness" you said nothing but the truth and the truth shall set us all free


God bless you!

Don't know if its been posted on here already, but a report on the Sandy Hook school shooting was released recently, right around the Christmas/New Year period. Regardless of the true nature of the events that took place, I find the timing of this report suspicious – being hidden by other news (particularly here in the UK, can't speak for elsewhere) – so just wanted to point it out, in case others have missed it, as I almost did.

thanks VC.. give us an insight of holy grail by jayz and justine timberlake..thankyou.

people need to step up and stop SAYING THEY ARE ELITE, because by doing this, we ourselves are giving them power and acknowledging that there is someone above us. aside from "mass media" the first thing we need to realize is how to control our emotions. when we control our emotions, we can stop them from seeping through the things we see everyday that influence our thoughts subliminally. this may not be something everyone can accomplish, and that's why the second thing we need to do is have a resistance because all of this "mass media" odge podge revolves around capitalism, economics, your taxes, your money, and control. they do not care for anything but that and will take your children even if that's what it takes. there needs to be resistance with that, and then we can sit around on media websites analyzing images in music videos. i believe… Read more »
I absolutely love this site. It teaches me and I really respect VCs writing. When I love a site I usually scroll to the bottom and participate in, or at least read, the comments. However, the comments on this site I usually avoid as much as possible. If you are a christian (or any religion, but Christians certainly are the loudest) that is wonderful for you, and I am glad you feel you have all the answers and will be the only ones who are "saved." But this is not a Christian site. Not everyone shares your views. The comments people leave here lead me to believe most people are reading completely different stories than I am! And before anyone comments and says, " But VC is a mystic christian!" So what. He also asks all not to post for or against any religion. That's not what this site is… Read more »

People can write what they think… don't bi#ch if you don't agree – move on.

Thank you you Vigilant Citizen for bringing the truth to the unsuspecting masses. I hope that this new year brings you more knowledge that you'd be willing to impart to the rest of us. It takes a lot of strength and fortitude to do what you do and I appreciate it a great deal. I believe that knowledge is power and you've certainly brought plenty to the table to digest this year. Thank You!

Two Pieces of Interesting TidBits

1: KE$HA has recently checked herself into rehab for an EATING disorder. I believe there is a LOT more going on than an eating disorder when your own mother dresses up as a phallus and hops around on stage. I mean WHO DOES THAT?

2: Vox Populi Methods of Manipulation is and EXCELLENT documentary. Check it Out.

Happy New Year All…….May God have mercy on all of us.

Thank you for spreading your knowledge unto us. Not being afraid to speak out and encouraging us and informing us

Do you ever worry that they might do something to you? Because you are a mouthpiece to expose the illuminati for what they are? I just wondered…

Keep up the good work!

I saw this movie called "Beyond the black rainbow",
there is a lot of things going on there. VC, I hope you could talk about it.

Thank you for all you do! Keep up the wonderful work in the year to come and may you be blessed with health, love and happiness in 2014.

Let's hope that this year won't have such an impact on society. And that no one else joins the Illuminati train ride or the 27 club. Best holiday wishes to everyone on this site.

Thanks for everything VC. You rock!

We love you, VC. You keep our eyes and our minds open.
Keep up the good work.
Can't wait for the new year and the new articles.

well said VC n keep up the good work x big love xxx

(Put a diety in what u believe, if u do so) and receive blessings. If u dont believe in anything at all wake up and look around to your beloved ones and theres the greatest deepest And meaningful secret ever… love

Very well said VC, thank you for your articles throughout the years! Happy New Year:)

A happy New Year to all!

VC, thank you for the great work exposing the TRUTH ! Hope more and more people open their eyes and souls for the knowledge, which is hidden.. EVERYWHERE. And as i observe – thats happening. We are pushed to live in a grid of paradox and duality, so it depends on us to make an effort and overcome this separation. I wish every human being on the world to realize his fears and turn them into a creative power.

Best wishes from Bulgaria.

PS: Regarding NYE and all of the gregorian/masonic "under the dome" sh-t we are sunk into..

Hey folks, noticing something in GOOGLE`s logo today ? I laughed so hard.

nice one, you're so observant!!!

Thank you !

Some more I realized is how the digits of 0 and 1 are "caged" in the pyramid: 01 is the mirror reflection of 10, and thats the number of human spiritual perfection as we know. Thats why 9/11 is so important by its esoteric numerological meaning – because 10 is stuck between them without possibility to manifest itself.

Alsooo see how the 2 ( II -> 11 again and again) is doing the "as above, so below" thing.

So soft hints. 😀

Look at all this love here! Happy holidays everyone and vc!

This website has been an inspiration with all the knowledge that you bring to us. I always check this website for the "accurate" news. I admit that sometimes I can get a little depressed. It's disheartening to know that people don't care to acknowledge what's right in front of them. However, this site has also been a reminder that I am not alone. It's nice to read people's opinions and other knowledge gathered about different subjects. We have this nice little VC community here. 🙂 Merry Christmas to you all! If there is one thing that is very important, it's spend time with your loved ones for the new year and remember the good things that you have in life and what humanity is all about. What's coming is big but don't forget that turning a blind eye only makes you just as bad. In times of trouble one must… Read more »

Thanks, VC

Happy Holidays and God Bless…

Thank you VC!

Wish you a great holidays season, and my best wishes for 2014 🙂

Beautifully said!!!!! What a perfect way to sum up the year!!!!!!! Greatest wishes to you and yours!!! I look forward to keeping my eyes wide open in the following years 🙂

I concur wholeheartedly. Thanks for VC for voicing your thoughts on the truth.

Dear VC, thank you for this informative site. Thank you for all the hard work that goes into researching and composing each article. I really look forward to your angle on the issues you cover. I've been visiting your site for the past 3 years and you never fail to deliver. I just wanted to say keep up the excellent work, I appreciate each analogy be it spotm, a viral vid or movie. I am from South Africa and when I first started visiting this site I thought damn them americans are crazy but then I started seeing fellow South Africans on this site, The Parlortones, Oscar Pistorius , Die Antwoord and recently Candice Swanepoel from Decembers spotm and I'm realising that this NWO desensitising brain washing illuminati s**t is real and they mean business which is rather scary. But hey all I can do is stay strong and vigilant… Read more »

Hi, Chris!
About your "PS", yeah – i thought about that too. i'm sure that they kept Mandela alive all those years for a reason. We all know what happens with people who speaks the truth out loud, and fights for justice. They've all been killed. So, about Mandela, maybe some hidden agenda kept him alive, for some reason. Not unworthy his remarkable work and his emblematic figure, but we know how things work in the big scheme.

The Question is what year will Lucifer quit hiding behind his puppets and just have an outrageous coming out in a Terry Richardson photo shoot.

Merry Christmas and hope new year will be better for all of us! thank you for keeping up your site and for all the awesome, intelligent articles. It's really nice having site like this online. I wish you many more years of work! 🙂

Keep up the great work that you do Mr VC, I enjoy your email notifications.

Right on VC. Everyone in the western world should read that.

Well said VC, you pretty much summed up everything that I've been thinking about just like everybody else here. I probably would be expecting something similar in the new year

Love this post! Even tho I feel I somehow missed part 1 & 2 so I'll have to go looking for them, lol, this is exactly how I feel in my heart and I am so glad to know that more of us flock to the same page! Keep up your work in shedding light on more and more ppl, I love what is happening here : )

Happy Holidays vigilant citizens : )
Have a safe and awake 2014.

VC, can you do an article on the movie Elysium? Its FILLED with symbolism and id love to read you pick it apart!

Thanks for your interesting articles, I always love reading them. Here's to 2014! (I wonder what is next…)

God Bless you and thank you for sharing this very enlightening post. It was. Interesting how you put as obvious as it is I never tought of it that way….how the entertainment is numbing us to the disasters all around us. Happy holidays to you to! You are definitely sending a good message out there. I'm not depressed and I have a light in me that is brighter than ever. I won't let them steal that away!

Did anyone see the new samsung galaxy ad? One eyed symbolism everywhere. It's strange how blatant it is nowadays.

On my Street, i have three beauty spa lounges and all their ads feature a model with her right eye closed….then I ask myself «really? Is that all they got?» they are getting really desperate.

We should keep fighting and maybe make it with VC' s tips as proposed by Willie.


Please do an article on why if you ask Siri "What day is July 27, 2014?" She answers "Sunday (Opening Gates of Hades)

What a random question to ask that hoe!

D d d I always visualised you as a Scouser? Of course, not a scally.
