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



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!

Thanks for the positive article i notice that this site can put me at a low mood (at times) but your advice was really informing. everybody should open up their eyes and learn the truth because it helps you avoid being brain washed and corrupted by society! yeah for vigilant! yeah for no ignorance! only the truth sets you free!

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 entertaining than the performance itself. As usual there isn't anything on TV that can even come close to comparing to all the stuff on the internet. That said, I find it entertaining…rarely enlightening. I feel like were the internet a well, we'd be going to it to get our poison… 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!!

Beautifully written.

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 s**t that’s going on, yeah, life IS beautiful.
Keep up the good work!

this post made me smile! thanks ever soo much VC dont know where half of us would be without you!

Very well said! God bless you and the work you do.

Check this out, VC! Disney Land tracking devices, ha!!!!!!

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.

This is my favorite site to visit every week and get enlightening informations. Keep up the good works. Don't be afraid to let the Truth be known.

VC !……. You're da man…. thanks for another full year of awesome information…. Their "great work" is on the brink of collapse no matter how much they pretend it's not….. lookin' forward to a year of change ahead…. !
Cheers 🙂

Thanks VC for all the information and time you take to wake us up from the matrix. Happy New Year to you.

Happy Holidays and well wishes to you and your family VC. Big fan in Atlanta, GA.

Happy New Year VC!! And to all!!!

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 elite were so disturbing, i'd spend nights awake, or I'd sleep with the light on, for weeks at a time, but I'd never felt so… alive. I was wide awake both metaphorically and physically and it's thanks to you and your Gaga interpretations xD Your articles opened doors for conversation… 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 one with the Dark side and its minions, we won't know what to do next to serve the just and loving Creator. Because ones we're astray, and fumble and tumble in the dark, we are easily decieved, and then we're easy prey to the Dark One, whose dark will and… Read more »

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

I don´t agree with that part!

we should respect animals and treat them right!

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 by myself & if anything happened to harm him in any way I just couldn’t bear it. Having him opens me up to complete vulnerability when it comes to emotional pain. So anyways I felt like the Lord gave me this verse tonight. “Who are you that you fear mortal… 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 hell. It is what it is. They are victims of unlimited wickedness and they have no clue or they have?

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 this for opening my eyes but I will take your advice and go outside,spend time with my family.

May Allah bless you. I hope they won't be able to take you down…

That was refreshing. Thank You. HAPPY 2013

Thank you so much for you information you have no idea how much you have opened up our eyes….. Happy New Year VC all the way from Zambia, Africa……..

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 latest trend was going to change my life! Honestly if I'm somewhere where the TV is on, I get dizzy! I am happier, more in peace and what I value the most are the people I love. My time and energy goes to them and enjoying real things in life,… 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.

hey,the posted date is my Birthday.

Thank you VC for that… Jesus will prevail and let us enjoy life despite the doom and gloom.

Exactly what I needed to hear. Thankyou, perfect perspective! Happy New Year! Lets live life to the fullest in 2013.

Thanks VC for the good works and hoping to get more this 2013.


happy xmas to you vc,and thanks for your kind words.I pray you stay humble,open-minded and unbreakable.
Anyway,i wanted to share something :
it happened the day after chris brown's concert,in abidjan,cote d'ivoire-and really close to the stadium Felix Houphouet Boigny where the said concert took place.
Ritual sacrifice??I think so.
Best regards from Cote d'Ivoire,West Africa

I want to add my appreciation along with everyone else. Your work has helped me tie together the fragments of my own research and gut feeling over the years. The anger that comes with these truths can be debilitating and yes, we must avoid being sucked in. All this darkness is a great backdrop for the truth…seek first the Kingdom of God and His righteousness…

I would like to post a link here for a free download of my new album. This music is intended to be a healing balm for your soul in the midst of this bitter world.

Grace and Peace to all,

Vigilant, you've done an amazing job at opening my eyes and finding the truth. While I take everything on the internet with a grain of salt, I admire the amount of research you put into your articles and I can honestly say that to do something like this without reward, it has to be a labor or love. I've been visiting the site for 2-3 years now and am glad that if my instinct tells me something is up with the media, politics, or the music industry that you have already addressed it or will address it in the future. May you have a prosperous, blessed, and safe 2013! Much love and thanks to you, your family, and you're amazing supporters.

Happy Holidays VC!
Thanks for another amazing year of refreshing literature!
Screw the haters and the hackers – Be proud! You know you're hitting a raw nerve somewhere up in the elite ranks…. A JOB WELL DONE!

So well said. People really do get so caught up in the evil that they forget to LIVE. Thank you VC for all you do for all your readers. It's so appreciated. Happy Holidays! <3

I Pray that with the New Year here, That we all become wiser, happier and more aware of the world around us! Despite the pure evil that the media pushes at we must stick together and spread the word. Division is the enemies weapon. Despite or religious beliefs and ethnic backgrounds. We must all have hope that through strength we can win Together!

Very well said Vig. Happy New Year!!

Thanks VC for leading the way! I'm from a culture that tends to accept things at face value. Even in my 40's and being a father of 3, I never realized all the evil happening around me, right before my eyes. I never knew how naive I was, so I can imagine how so many others are just 'duped' and led by the nose by people with calculated intent of destroying pure values and replacing it with a controlled, fabricated mindset. Thanks for opening people's minds – we may be a minority but the sense of passion and urgency for promoting the truth is very crucial. So, here's to the true, good and pure! Happy New Year everyone!!!

Bless you mate. Your work is much appreciated.

All the best.


Absolutely love this website. 🙂

A very happy New Year to all readers and VC. All the best!!!!!!!!

Thankyou soooo much for posting this….I was kinda being sucked into all of this…like it was over shawdowing my life, but God still sits high on the throne and I have to continually practice putting my trust in him. My eyes are def more opened because of this site and others. But I have to stay balanced! Thanks again….happy holidays

Thanx VC. I really do appreciate what you do. Happy new year to all vigilant citizens..

Bless you!!

As usual, highly encouraging! Being a reader now for over two years, I unfortunately do not contribute content… However, I am not only wide awake, I am interested in knowing more and notice obvious signs and symbols all around the streets of my city (through ads, other various propaganda).

Long story short, happy new year! And thank you!

More 2012 weirdness from one of the jesters….

Kanye West's crystal mask

Start sending care packages to ALL MILITARY SERVICE MEMBERS with NWO literature, Steve Jackson’s RPG crad games, food, printed copies of VC articles that relate to specific areas (Russian troops get world capital conspiracy Kazaistan and British troops get Princess Diana murder conspiracy occult messages article). Anything and everything from the oblivious conspiracies to the far fetched ones like project blue beam, Roswell, military moon bases, It’s the Zionists, it’s the Jesuits, holocaust hoax, Rothchild thinks they are satan’s children, etc… You can donate them (even African villages) printed articles, literature like “Behold a pale horse” or “Cures they don’t want you to know about”, infowars magazines, burned DVD copies of lectures from John Todd/Manly P. Hall/Bill Cooper/David Icke, Alex Jones documentaries, etc… Letters with your families life stories photos of your children, your life goals, your accomplishments, asking them about similarities, start a truth movement for the soliders, let… Read more »

It's been a pleasure learning from your site for the past 3 years you are very insightful, objective and when kesha admitted to what you had initially suggested that showed you had an idea of what you were talking about

i just saw that VC is mentioned on a wikipedia article, well done!********a

Seasons greetings and may you have a bright and prosperous new year. This is one of my favorite websites and has been a great help in my search of “The Truth”. Looking forward to reading many more informative articles in the year to come. All the best

Love your site!
Love this post.
Happy holidays and keep doing what you’re doing!! 🙂
