Retaining Composure In Light Of Pure Evil


We are living in a time when the true nature of the occult elite is being slowly unraveled before the eyes of the world by a distributed network of independent citizen journalists and investigators. Yes, this is a post about PizzaGate, because it is so monumentally significant that it demands to be addressed. The details are available in overabundance on various threads and channels across the internet, so I’m not going to spell out the gory details here. A word of caution: cover yourself in prayer and with the blood of Jesus before researching these topics. The process of investigation itself is nothing short of spiritual warfare.

That being said, what can we conclude at this point? First, the effort to label everything and anything that deviates from the globalist narrative pushed by the occult elite as ‘fake news’ is an obvious propaganda ploy by the controllers of the obsolete media. Efforts to brush aside the investigation into the allegations of horrific crimes as witch hunts fall apart when put under any scrutiny. Their card has been pulled. Everything they’ve done over the past year has backfired. Their credibility is damaged beyond repair. It’s over for them. Enough about that.

The Economist’s World In 2017

World in 2017.jpg

A quick bit of background for readers that may not be familiar with the infamous covers of The Economist. Towards the end of the year the magazine – a City of London and Rothschild operation – puts out an issue discussing trends and forecasts for the year ahead. The covers used to be simple photo arrays of influential people and ideas related to the articles inside the issue. For the 2015 and 2016 covers the style shifted significantly. The imagery and symbolism became more convoluted and roused no small bit of speculation about what messages were being communicated.

For the 2017 cover, the style has changed again. The use of divination tools renders the entire structure more overtly occult than it has ever been. This article is not intended to dissect the various potential implications on the signals being sent here. If you’re looking for that type of content there are several hours worth of videos on YouTube produced by people with much more experience with occult symbology.

Why do we fail to navigate the variety of obstacles that we encounter in the family environment? Which questions must we ask of ourselves and of others in order to strengthen these crucial relationships? Where are the pitfalls we must avoid?

Bring your questions to our open forum and join us for another lively meeting of The Amateur Society. We look forward to having you with us. Stay safe and God bless!


When I Don’t Understand – Pastor Carter Conlon – Times Square Church – 11.27.2016


God’s ways are higher than our ways, and His thoughts are higher than our thoughts. In trial and affliction we may be assured of the faithfulness of the Lord. God knows what we will deal with in the near and distant future, and He knows exactly what we need to go through in order to be ready to endure, to follow, and to spread the gospel. We must give thanks to God always, especially when we don’t understand.

When I Don’t Understand – Pastor Carter Conlon – Times Square Church – 11.27.2016

My God, my God, why hast thou forsaken me? why art thou so far from helping me, and from the words of my roaring?

O my God, I cry in the day time, but thou hearest not; and in the night season, and am not silent.

But thou art holy, O thou that inhabitest the praises of Israel.

Our fathers trusted in thee: they trusted, and thou didst deliver them.

They cried unto thee, and were delivered: they trusted in thee, and were not confounded.

But I am a worm, and no man; a reproach of men, and despised of the people.

All they that see me laugh me to scorn: they shoot out the lip, they shake the head, saying,

He trusted on the Lord that he would deliver him: let him deliver him, seeing he delighted in him.

But thou art he that took me out of the womb: thou didst make me hope when I was upon my mother’s breasts.

I was cast upon thee from the womb: thou art my God from my mother’s belly.

Be not far from me; for trouble is near; for there is none to help.

Many bulls have compassed me: strong bulls of Bashan have beset me round.

They gaped upon me with their mouths, as a ravening and a roaring lion.

I am poured out like water, and all my bones are out of joint: my heart is like wax; it is melted in the midst of my bowels.

My strength is dried up like a potsherd; and my tongue cleaveth to my jaws; and thou hast brought me into the dust of death.

For dogs have compassed me: the assembly of the wicked have inclosed me: they pierced my hands and my feet.

I may tell all my bones: they look and stare upon me.

They part my garments among them, and cast lots upon my vesture.

But be not thou far from me, O Lord: O my strength, haste thee to help me.

Deliver my soul from the sword; my darling from the power of the dog.

Save me from the lion’s mouth: for thou hast heard me from the horns of the unicorns.

I will declare thy name unto my brethren: in the midst of the congregation will I praise thee.

Ye that fear the Lord, praise him; all ye the seed of Jacob, glorify him; and fear him, all ye the seed of Israel.

For he hath not despised nor abhorred the affliction of the afflicted; neither hath he hid his face from him; but when he cried unto him, he heard.

My praise shall be of thee in the great congregation: I will pay my vows before them that fear him.

The meek shall eat and be satisfied: they shall praise the Lord that seek him: your heart shall live for ever.

All the ends of the world shall remember and turn unto the Lord: and all the kindreds of the nations shall worship before thee.

For the kingdom is the Lord‘s: and he is the governor among the nations.

All they that be fat upon earth shall eat and worship: all they that go down to the dust shall bow before him: and none can keep alive his own soul.

A seed shall serve him; it shall be accounted to the Lord for a generation.

They shall come, and shall declare his righteousness unto a people that shall be born, that he hath done this.

Psalm 22

Ross Powell Of Survival 401k – The American Divide


Ross Powell is the founder of Survival 401k, a specialty financial services company that provides hard-asset based retirement account solutions and preparation recommendations. Please visit his website to explore the critical solutions that Ross offers. This article was originally published on US Daily Review: The American Divide


There are seasons in every country when noise and impudence pass current for worth; and in popular commotions especially, the clamors of interested and factious men are often mistaken for patriotism.

This turn of phrase from Alexander Hamilton, the founding father who graces both the $10 Federal Reserve Note and the Broadway stage at present, is rendered particularly noteworthy given the recent interaction between the cast of the musical Hamilton and Vice-President Elect Mike Pence. Aside from the rich irony of fake history lecturing real history, it is important to remember that as a nation and a society we are at a critical point of immense historical significance.

Leaving the semantics of the event aside, there is clearly a great divide in the hearts and minds of the American people. While the professionally-agitated demonstrations that began immediately after Donald Trump’s election have not led to a general escalation of tensions, the split in our society still remains and the potential for fractious action is perhaps more potent now than ever before. Strong emotions are still percolating, and our culture’s default postmodern worldview of relativism is coming to the forefront. We have been taught that right and wrong and true and false are simply whatever we each deem them to be. This has led to a generational indoctrination that has produced in the populous a profound sense of righteous indignation for anything that is deemed offensive. Our own emotional reactions have become the barometer by which important policy decisions are evaluated.

Happy Thanksgiving And God Bless!


Happy Thanksgiving and God’s blessings to all of my fellow amateurs! I’ll be out of the loop for a few days for some family time, but we’ll be back in action on Monday for our weekly call.

That I may publish with the voice of thanksgiving, and tell of all thy wondrous works.
Psalm 26:7

Enter into his gates with thanksgiving, and into his courts with praise: be thankful unto him, and bless his name.
Psalm 100:4
