The Unacceptable “F” Word
At one time a famous comedian had his list of unacceptable words you couldn’t say on television and radio. If you did the FCC would heavily fine the person which did so. This comedian I speak of was George Carlin. I certainly will not address these words, nor did I intend to, but instead the word that I speak of is not on his list:
If you did look at these words, you know these were once unacceptable for television. But, watching television has changed! What was once family oriented programming networks are not so friendly anymore. You not only hear the words on that list, but you see things which has definitely thrown society into a game changer for families, and especially young people. I think programming has affected families in so many ways, and this also includes the family dynamics as a whole. And to expand upon that would be the theaters, as well. Frequently used words which supposedly are rated into categories, are now even used in family rated films. I believe this has reflected itself upon our nation and world.
Standards have eroded over time, and now graphic scenes leave families trying to explain certain situations later, if they are good parents. Many parents don’t leave the theater or watch television and explain which causes children and youngsters to evaluate these subjects on their own which is dangerous to say the least.
I’m sure you thought the word with the “F” which I was referring to is a foul four-letter one, right? Well, it’s not. The word I speak of is “FAITH”.
This word has become the “unacceptable” F word. And not only is it unacceptable but if it is spoken of then it’s used in a derogatory manner, and even used as humorous!
The truth is the word faith is one which many people veer away from, and some families rarely even use the word. I personally have heard children ask their parents, “Who is God?” True story. And what’s worse is that example happened in my own family!
Faith is the F word which is avoided. Many colleges do not contain this word in their curriculum, many schools are prompted to never speak of it. In fact, if you intend to be a doctor then FORGET IT! Your taught there is NO GOD!
Peer pressure has only increased since I was in school, and the current crowds or ‘cliques’ are exclusive groups called, “goths”, “preps”, “punk”, “geeks”, “jocks”, “nerds”…etc. But if you hear of the religious groups then they are considered “crazy”. But, this doesn’t just apply to school anymore…it’s applies to the whole world!
Young people who want to build life upon faith are hindered by a peer pressure, so much so, that they can be ridiculed, bullied even, into edging faith out of their everyday experience of life. Faith is there, but it takes courage to use and own that F word.
The wave began ever so quietly…sneaking it’s way into families. How?? I believe television programming and theater films had a great part in it. Why didn’t Believer’s stop its progress? Just like with most things in life, they didn’t take it seriously. I liken it to Rock & Roll music…it’s end result is evil, but at first it was pleasing to the ear. When people said Rock music was the devils music, they laughed! Now listen closely to lyrics…have you? Well….you better!
Faith is a dirty word now. When families get together, including my own…we tell each other…”Don’t speak of religion or politics.” Crazy right?
Well, recently…I put my foot down! I told everyone it’s a NON-NEGOTIABLE subject for me…either you accept me as I am or don’t accept me at all.
This is what we have to do! PUT OUR FOOT DOWN!
If not….then it will get much worse. Ohhh…and it will because people are weak-minded!
But wait…do you have the guts to stand up for what you believe?
Then…GO SERVE YOUR KING!
JESUS CHRIST IS THE KING OF KINGS!
This is a Refresher Course for US Citizens who do not know about what you are Not being told about your Government! and its Secret Illegal US Laws to Rip you off and Surpress you
What I will do is make it as simple as I can and explain some basics that will tie everything into ONE MAJOR GOVERNMENT BACKDOOR SCREW TO ITS PEOPLE! If you do not know this information, please, do not jump ahead before you read everything, because IT WILL BE EXPLAINED WHY THIS OR THAT!
What you are about to hear is all 100% TRUE. Feel free to take 1 minute of our your life and you can do your own web search and see the 1000s of pages of these Secret Government Systems you are NOW SUPPOSE TO KNOW!
1 – Each Police Dept, City County, State and the US ARE ALL PRIVATE FOR PROFIT BUSINESS CORPORATIONS (hiding under the false name Government)! What does that mean? It means the legal term “Government” is the exact same a Private For Profit Business Corporation. It is NOT OWNED by the People, nor does the money go into your community to run you. It IS IN FACT OWNED BY Unknown Private Business(man) People FOR THEIR PERSONAL PROFIT! How more Clear do you have to have it to say ALL titles with “Government” in the name are Privately Held For Profit Corporations AND ONLY THE SINGLE OWNER OF THAT CORPORATION TITLE MAKES ALL THE MONEY! DA!
You “think” government means your community puts that money in a pot and it is like a bank account for your “government”.
The loophole you need to understand is that the Private undisclosed owner of that Business corporation name, all that money goes into their personal bank account. And what these criminals do are keep all the profits for their own personal wealth, and they kick back a few dollars here and there to give its community the “illusion” it is your cities! Anyone thinking that is 100% WRONG!
So now do you understand why you never ever know what your “government” does with its money? They painted the false trusting picture in your head as Reality, so you were all “Brainwashed” by your “government” to not see the truth!
– So whenever you hear the term “government employee” that is nothing but a corporation employee; disguised to reflect reality by the term “government”. But you see, it is the exact same meaning by made you think it meant something else.

2 – If you have been issued a US Birth Certificate, congratulations! You are a legal US “Citizen” Right; with “Constitutional Rights”? WRONG! You are a legal US “Corporation”; with “Corporation Rights”! Let me explain this Secret Illegal Backdoor Government Scam against its people…
In about 1933, your US Government Legally changed the processing term of issuing Birth Certificates from “Citizen” to “Corporation”. This is when your country Changed forever. So now instead of newborn babies being “citizens”, they were not called “Corporations.” So now instead of Love creating babies, the government looked at it as a Business Transaction between 2 individual people. Two people merged and created a newborn baby, or a “New Corporation”.
Since these were now newly created corporations, corporations laws now applied. Doing this your government replaced our commonly known “Constitutional Rights” of a “Citizen” to that of “Corporation Rights” for all Corporations. And from that day until today, you do not have 1 single “Constitutional Right” because by the letter of the US Legal Laws, you are now a “Corporation.”
Your so called “government” (aka corporation) could not financially profit off of “Citizens” but they could if they controlled the “Corporations.”
Birth Certificates have been and still are considered newly created corporations. They are signed will your unknowingly will of your mother by her signature, and you become a “corporation” to whatever she named you. Parents are never ever informed of this scam!
Once your birth certificate is published, it is an announcement of a new corporation on the market. And as all corporations, BY LAW, they need to be claimed; but parents do not know this.
So after 90 days after issue of their child’s Birth Certificate, the government is the “Default” owner of that unclaimed “Corporation” and BY US LEGAL LAW, they 100% OWN THAT “Corporation” (aka newborn).
Your government corporation now has another Business they own clear free! What do you do to profit from Corporations> Yes, you sell or trade them! Welcome to Wall Street! Your Birth Certificate is the Government (corporation) OWNED BOND stating they OWN YOU FREE AND CLEAR!
Next, your Government BUYS, SELLS OR TRADES THEIR BONDS to other corporations for profit!
Now do you understand WHY ALL US CITIZENS ARE SLAVES TO YOUR CORPORATE OWNER? You are traded on the Wall Street Stock Exchange for Profit, like any other corporation being bought/sold! Each of you are nothing but “Cattle” or “Slaves” being auctioned off to the highest bidder!
Where do you really think your Government gets its money to run your Country? They buy, sell, and trade YOUR FUTURE LABOR to other corporations FOR PROFIT! SO YOU ARE NOTHING BUT A SLAVE BEING BOUGHT, SOLD AND TRADED ON WALL STREET (you are not suppose to know this) So you don’t know this Legal Backdoor Scamming.
Your Government is nice and let you, your birth parents raise them as your own child, yet they 100% belong to your Government. As any parent, haven’t you ever heard of the Government always putting their nose into supposedly parent/child decisions? Well, you see, they “Own” you; your Parents do not “own” you. Your mother unknowingly signed all your newborn babies rights away and never claimed them as yours; thus you abandoned your baby after 90 days, by not legally claiming them as your own. Get the picture of “the game” going on that you ARE NOT SUPPOSE TO KNOW?
Don’t you get tired of always fighting the government of whats best for your child? Well, they are the “owners” of the “corporation” and they are doing what they want AS ITS OWNER! Now you know why your government is always worried why you ever go up against its policies, because they are brainwashing and “forming” your child to their wants and needs; not yours, nor the best interest of your child! Making sense on the game?
Now you hear that you can not home school your child right? Well, that is because you are harming “Their” legal property, and they do not want to educating them more then then want them know! Your children are being 100% programmed and conformed to the governments will of their property!
From the 90 days after the issue of their Birth Certificate until they are 18, your government is the LEGAL OWNER OF THIS PROPERTY! Once they because 18, children are transferred from “The Ward Of The State” to that of a “Private Corporation” So until you child is 18, the government as final say on all matters. Once they hit 18, they are responsible for themselves, but they are still 100% Bonded as a “Corporation”; and will be until the day they die, or reclaim their citizenship and break away from their “Corporation” business.
So anytime any person gets anything issued, you will notice that your name is always in CAPITAL LETTERS RIGHT? Well, this is the Corporation Legal way they are addressed on any legal document! That is why you never ever see your name in lower letters because you are not a Citizen but a Corporation. So every time you sign any document with all CAPS, you are Representing and Confirm yourself AS A Legal Business CORPORATION! See how they legally backdoor its citizens, and not tell them anything?
Every single action you do in your life is NOT AS A CITIZEN, BUT A CORPORATION! If you get arrested or do harm to someone, you do it as a Corporation; not person!
You verify you are acting as a Business Corporation every time you SIGN ANY DOCUMENT WITH YOUR NAME IN ALL CAPITAL LETTERS – Period, end of Story! Regardless if you were made aware of it OR NOT! Your Government System is set up automatically to hide THIS FACT, and why they never ever tell you!
Also, you wonder where all your Constitutional Rights have gone right? Remember, IN THE EYES OF US LEGAL LAW, YOU ARE A “Corporation” NOT A CITIZEN! Now do you 100% understand why your Government are getting rid of them?
Remember hearing – “People are Corporations” because “Corporations Are People”! Last year, didn’t they try to have “Corporations” vote? Well, that makes perfect sense now doesn’t it? Also, since you are a “Corporation”, your votes do not count as a “Citizens” vote. You can not be both a “Corporation” or “Citizen” at the same time.
Lastly, always remember YOU AND EVERYONE YOU KNOW IS A CORPORATION, so whenever you hear of Basic human citizens rights being ignored, or trampled on, remember, until you Reclaim your Citizenship back from your Birth Certificate created “Corporation” you are 100% a 24/7 Corporation.
Now you ask, how do I reclaim my Citizenship. Well, this creates a totally different TON OF GOVERNMENT HARASSMENT AND THEY WILL GO OUT OF THEIR WAY TO MAKE YOU AND YOUR FAMILIES LIFE A LIVING HELL! But you do need to complete a “Writ” as a Free Citizen and other documents. If you want to do this, do a search, as this is hard because very few people ever done it.
Now since you understand your government is a Private For (Personal) Profit Business Corporation for the owner, and by the letter of US LAW, you are a “Corporation.”

Who died before they collected Social Security?
THIS IS SURE SOMETHING TO THINK ABOUT!
THE ONLY THING WRONG WITH THE GOVERNMENT’S CALCULATION OF AVAILABLE SOCIAL SECURITY IS THEY FORGOT TO FIGURE IN THE PEOPLE WHO DIED BEFORE THEY EVER COLLECTED A SOCIAL SECURITY CHECK!
WHERE DID THAT MONEY GO?
Remember, not only did you and I contribute to Social Security but your employer did too.
It totaled 15% of your income before taxes.
If you averaged only $30K over your working life, that’s close to $220,500.
Read that again.
Did you see where the Government paid in one single penny?
We are talking about the money you and your employer put in a government bank to insure you and I, that we would have a retirement check from the money we put in, not the Government.
Now they are calling the money we put in an entitlement when we reach the age to take it back.
If you calculate the future invested value of $4,500 per year (yours & your employer’s contribution) at a simple 5% interest (less than what the Government pays on the money that it borrows).
After 49 years of working you’d have $892,919.98. If you took out only 3% per year, you’d receive $26,787.60 per year and it would last better than 30 years (until you’re 95 if you retire at age 65) and that’s with no interest paid on that final amount on deposit!
If you bought an annuity and it paid 4% per year, you’d have a lifetime income of $2,976.40 per month.
THE FOLKS IN WASHINGTON HAVE PULLED OFF A BIGGER PONZI SCHEME THAN BERNIE MADOFF EVER DID.
Entitlement my foot; I paid cash for my social security insurance!
Just because they borrowed the money for other government spending, doesn’t make my benefits some kind of charity or handout!!
Remember Congressional benefits?
— free healthcare, outrageous retirement packages, 67 paid holidays, three weeks paid vacation, unlimited paid sick days.
Now that’s welfare, and they have the nerve to call my social security retirement payments entitlements?
They call Social Security and Medicare an entitlement even though most of us have been paying for it all our working lives, and now, when it’s time for us to collect, the government is running out of money.
Why did the government borrow from it in the first place?
It was supposed to be in a locked box, not part of the general fund.
Sad isn’t it?
We are at a time in this world which has come full circle. A time likened to the days of when Jesus Christ walked the Earth. A few disciples followed after Him, and the rest denied the reality of what was coming. So, we have the same situation…many profess Jesus Christ with their mouth but few with their hearts. The Narrow Path is ever so hard to follow. Are you living your life for the flesh and the world, or do you put Jesus Christ first? Let’s be serious because your immorality is at stake…the future of your soul’s destiny hangs in the balance.

The Town that Dreaded Sundown
Once upon a time, this country (and world) lived with somewhat of a innocence about it. Long ago it was, but none the less we could live without fear of danger surrounding us constantly.
But, the kind of danger I speak of is the supernatural kind. Of course, anyone with any kind of knowledge of the supernatural/demonology has come to know that down through the ages the intensity of this war has only increased and is getting worse.
Statistics reveal that the amount of exorcisms are exponentially increasing around the world.
This was written on 27 Nov 2002;
During the last decade, it seems that the need for and availability of exorcists has actually increased. In 1993, there was only one exorcist in the United States officially sanctioned by the Vatican. By 1999, there were ten. The exorcist of the Archdiocese of New York, Fr. James Labar, conducts between 20 and 25 approved exorcisms each year. (1)
In 1993, the first meeting of the International Association of Exorcists only had six attendees. Six years later, in 1999, 200 attended. Possibly because of Gabriel Amorth’s influence, the number of exorcists in Italy has grown from 20 to 300.
If Fr. James Labar is doing 20 – 25 per year, and there are 10 exorcists in the U.S., that’s about 200 – 250 exorcisms in the U.S. If there are 300 exorcists in Italy and they’re doing the same amount per exorcist, that’s about 6,000 – 7,500 per year in Italy. Let’s assume that Italian exorcists only perform about 600 – 750 exorcisms per year. And the rest of the world does roughly the same number as the U.S. Theoretically, that would put the annual number of exorcisms at around 1,500. At least among Roman Catholics.
Since Roman Catholics only account for about 17% of all Christians, and since Christians only account for about 33% of all the people on the planet, let’s assume (again) that other religions that perform some form of exorcism only do so about half as often as Roman Catholics. So that would be roughly 9 times as many exorcism rituals, for a total of about 15,000 per year.
On the other hand, Gabriele Amorth also said that his opinion parallels that of Malachi Martin, in that he believes the RCC-Roman Catholic Church has high ranking churchmen, cardinals, archbishops and predates of the Roman curia, taking oaths signed with their own blood, plotting to destroy the Church from within.
How many other Catholics so eager to demonstrate the so-called “respectability” of their beliefs have dispensed with such “embarrassing” doctrines as the existence of the devil?
“Whoever says the devil does not exist is no longer a believer”
On July 13th, 1917, near the beginning of a century in which supernatural evil would all but be abandoned, Our Lady of Fatima deemed it necessary to show three children that hell exists and is not empty. What they saw horrified them to such a degree that they all dramatically changed their lives to avoid such a fate, becoming completely preoccupied with prayer, sacrifice, mortification and penance.
Our Lady did not tell them this vision was one possible representation of an afterlife without God, or suggest it was an educational illustration of why they should tend towards that which is good. She said, quite simply:
“You have seen Hell where the souls of sinners go.”
Readers of this site are most likely familiar with my POV-point of view. The Roman Catholic Church, in my POV, will be the establishment which will user in not only the New World Order, but the coming of the Antichrist. Their doctrines are blatantly contrary to the Word of GOD.
With that being said, I believe the experiences of the “Fatima” situation to be of the demonic kind. I believe them to be contact with the demons (necromancy) and Fatima was only an avenue in which they could direct their agenda into the world.
Did these demons take those children and show them sights which couldn’t eve be explained at the time? Did they truly see Hell? We may never know, but I can tell you this…from researching the incidents of UFO contacts with abductees, it’s plainly obvious they may have seen otherworldly scenes.
Since then, the “white smoke rising from the Sistine Chapel chimney” sent the message that the conclave had made its decision by 5:50 p.m. and ten minutes later, the bells began to ring for the jubilant pilgrims. In a bid to the 1.1 billion members of the Roman Catholic Church, Cardinal Jorge Arturo Medina Estevez introduced the new Pontiff – Pope Benedict XVI with the famous Habemus Papam formula, in traditional Latin. He began his greeting to the “universal Church” by stating “brothers and sisters” in several languages.
This was the previous election, the current pope is worse than the last.
In this article linked below;
The rise in demonic cases is a result of more people dabbling in practices such as black magic, paganism, Satanic rites and Ouija boards, often exploring the dark arts with the help of information readily found on the internet, says the church.
Belief in black magic and Satanism may have been spread by the internet, but there has been a streak of popular superstition in the Catholic Church for centuries. “I’m not sure it ever really went away,” said Mr Allen. “After the Second Vatican Council of the 1960s, there was a great deal of embarrassment among ‘enlightened’ Catholics about exorcisms and other aspects of the supernatural. It was seen as a medieval anachronism.
In 2003, this article was written;
Father James LeBar, exorcist for the Archdiocese of New York, said he has seen a “large explosion” in cases since 1990.
“Ten years ago I had no cases and now I have 300,” said Father James LeBar, an exorcist for the Archdiocese of New York.
“I have seen a dramatic rise in cases. In the past three hours before you phoned me, I have had three cases of people suffering serious contamination with the forces of evil. I am dealing with 10 to 15 cases a week.”
Moving onto 2011;
Exorcism is experiencing a renaissance in American Catholicism. There are more exorcists in the United States now than at any other time in modern history, according to experts. More than 100 bishops and priests met in Baltimore last November to recruit dozens more.
More priests in Italy and Spain are being properly trained on how to carry out exorcisms after an increasing amount of people have started adhering to mystical practices. The Catholic Church has decided to teach more priests how to perform exorcisms as the demand for such services continues to be on the rise.
CREATURES OF NIGHT
I give you the greatest of hope in your world of darkness that the victory shall be with Heaven. Know that the greatest trials suffered are but a small forfeiture for the great glory of being victorious over the adversaries loosed upon your earth. They come as creatures of night, but they must possess the bodies of humans. Understand this in the supernatural, My children: no man, woman, or child of reasoning is free from the attacks of Satan.
The truth is we all live in a town where there are some who dread the signs of sundown. When one begins to see the signs of dusk hitting the horizon, there are those who know they will get little sleep. They know that monsters do exist. These monsters love the darkness, and mostly come out at night.

Just in time for kids to go back to school after the holidays….before I begin this article, I want to tell a little story! It’s a true story. It happened to me when I went to have lunch with my granddaughter:
Upon arrival at the school, one must sign in, of course! Then, I proceed to the hallway and wait for the class to arrive at the lunchroom. We enter the lunchroom and I already brought for us. I brought a salad with all the fixin’s! We both love veggies so it was packed with pea pods (she and I called them that!) and carrots, peas, lettuce, etc. We ate, spent some valuable time together and her class went back to their room. I began to look around as I was leaving and noticed WARNING signs. They said, “NO FOOD IS ALLOWED OUT OF THIS BUILDING”. I thought that’s strange. But left and later realized why they were doing this! At first I thought it was because children would take food back to their classes and cause bug infestations, right? WRONG! They were hiding something!! They don’t want parents to know what’s inside the ‘food’ their feeding their children! WOW! Do you know what your children are eating?
Did you know that on a typical day, 32 million children in the U.S. eat cafeteria food? Or that most of these students consume over half of their daily calories at school?
Facts like these motivate us to connect kids to real food, and teach them how to make healthy choices through our sweetgreen in schools program. School cafeterias are one of the biggest areas of opportunity that exist in the battle against childhood obesity. Recently there has been discussion about what constitutes a quality lunch, so we took a look at some typical school meals around the world, and how our own country stacks up.
Local fish on a bed of arugula, pasta with tomato sauce, caprese salad, baguette and some grapes
Pea soup, beet salad, carrot salad, bread and pannakkau (dessert pancake) with fresh berries
Steak, carrots, green beans, cheese and fresh fruit
Pork with mixed veggies, black beans and rice, salad, bread and baked plantains
Fish soup, tofu over rice, kimchi and fresh veggies
Baked chicken over orzo, stuffed grape leaves, tomato and cucumber salad, fresh oranges, and greek yogurt with pomegranate seeds
Mashed potatoes with sausage, borscht, cabbage and syrniki (a dessert pancake)
Sautéed shrimp over brown rice and vegetables, gazpacho, fresh peppers, bread and an orange
Fried ‘popcorn’ chicken, mashed potatoes, peas, fruit cup and a chocolate chip cookie
Surprised at what you see above? You can help us make an impact and change the way future generations eat! Now until December 29th, purchase a local apple at any sweetgreen location, and we’ll donate the proceeds to FoodCorps to help connect kids to real food.
10 Things the Food Industry Doesn’t Want You to Know
Bigger, juicier, saltier, sweeter, crunchier. Most of all, more. The food industry and its nonstop marketing has been tabbed by many experts as a major player in the obesity epidemic. “The result of constant exposure to today’s ‘eat more’ food environment,” write Marion Nestle and Malden Nesheim in their upcoming book Why Calories Count, “has been to drive people to desire high-calorie foods and to become ‘conditioned overeaters.'”
Even as the food industry takes steps seemingly in the right direction—by launching campaigns to bring healthy products to schools, for example—wellness initiatives are often just marketing ploys, contends David Ludwig, a pediatrician and coauthor of a commentary published in 2008 in the Journal of the American Medical Association (JAMA) that raised questions about whether big food companies can be trusted to help combat obesity. Ultimately, he has argued, makers of popular junk foods have an obligation to stockholders to maximize profits, which means encouraging consumers to eat more—not less—of a company’s products. Health experts including Ludwig and Nestle, a professor of nutrition at New York University, both of whom have long histories of tracking the food industry, spoke with U.S. News and highlighted 10 things that junk food makers don’t want you to know about their products and how they promote them. Here’s a peek behind the curtain:
1. Junk food makers spend billions advertising unhealthy foods to kids. According to the Federal Trade Commission, food makers spend some $1.6 billion annually to reach children through the traditional media as well the Internet, in-store advertising, and sweepstakes. An article published in 2006 in the Journal of Public Health Policy puts the number as high as $10 billion annually. The bulk of these ads are for unhealthy products high in calories, sugar, fat, and sodium. Promotions often use cartoon characters or free giveaways to entice kids into the junk food fold. On TV alone, the average child sees about 5,500 food commercials a year (or about 15 per day) that advertise high-sugar breakfast cereals, fast food, soft drinks, candy, and snacks, according to the Yale Rudd Center for Food Policy and Obesity. Compare that to the fewer than 100 TV ads per year kids see for healthy foods like fruits, veggies, and bottled water.
2. The studies that food producers support tend to minimize health concerns associated with their products. In fact, according to a review led by Ludwig of hundreds of studies that looked at the health effects of milk, juice, and soda, the likelihood of conclusions favorable to the industry was several times higher among industry-sponsored research than studies that received no industry funding. “If a study is funded by the industry, it may be closer to advertising than science,” he says.
3. More processing means more profits, but typically makes food less healthy. Minimally processed foods such as fresh fruits and vegetables obviously aren’t where food companies look for profits. The big bucks stem from turning government-subsidized commodity crops—mainly corn, wheat, and soybeans—into fast foods, snack foods, and beverages. High-profit products derived from these commodity crops are generally high in calories and low in nutritional value. Ultraprocessed foods, for example, lack fiber, micronutrients, and healthful plant substances called phytochemicals that protect against heart disease and diabetes, Ludwig wrote in a 2011 JAMA commentary. Consider: A 10-ounce, 90-calorie portion of strawberries has 5 grams of fiber, abundant vitamins and minerals, and dozens of phytochemicals, while a 1-ounce portion of Fruit Gushers also has 90 calories, but virtually none of the fruit benefits.
4. Less-processed foods are generally more filling than their highly processed counterparts. Fresh apples have an abundance of fiber and nutrients that are lost when they are processed into applesauce. And the added sugar or other sweeteners increase the number of calories without necessarily making the applesauce any more filling. Apple juice, which is even more processed, has had almost all of the fiber and nutrients stripped out. This same stripping out of nutrients, says Ludwig, happens with highly refined white bread compared with stone-ground whole-wheat bread.
5. Many supposedly healthy replacement foods are hardly healthier than the foods they replace. In 2006, for example, major beverage makers agreed to remove sugary sodas from school vending machines. But the industry mounted an intense lobbying effort that persuaded lawmakers to allow sports drinks and vitamin waters that—despite their slightly healthier reputations—still can be packed with sugar and calories.
6. A health claim on the label doesn’t necessarily make a food healthy. Health claims such as “zero trans fats” or “contains whole wheat” may create the false impression that a product is healthy when it’s not. While the claims may be true, a product is not going to benefit your kid’s health if it’s also loaded with salt and sugar or saturated fat, say, and lacks fiber or other nutrients. “These claims are calorie distracters,” adds Nestle. “They make people forget about the calories.” For example, tropical-fruit flavored Gerber Graduates Fruit Juice Treats show pictures of fresh oranges and pineapple to imply that they’re made from real fruit, according to a 2010 report from the Center for Science in the Public Interest. In reality, the main ingredients are corn syrup, sugar, and white grape juice concentrate. And Keebler’s Townhouse Bistro Multigrain Crackers boast that they’re made with “toasted whole wheat,” although sugar content far outweighs the whole wheat. “‘Made with whole grains’ should send up a red flag,” says registered dietitian Marisa Moore, a spokesperson with the Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics. “If you’re eating packaged food, like cereal, bread, or pasta, check the ingredient list to verify that the first ingredient is in fact a whole grain.” (Think of the first ingredient listed on a package as the main ingredient; those listed farther down are included in smaller amounts.) Although the government is working to develop guidelines for front-of-package labels, no consensus has been reached.
7. Food industry pressure has made nutritional guidelines confusing for consumers. As Nestle explained in her 2003 book Food Politics, the food industry has a history of preferring scientific jargon to straight talk. As far back as 1977, public health officials attempted to include the advice “reduce consumption of meat” in an important report called Dietary Goals for the United States. The report’s authors capitulated to intense pushback from the cattle industry and used this less-direct and more ambiguous advice: “Choose meats, poultry, and fish, which will reduce saturated fat intake.” Overall, says Nestle, the government has a hard time suggesting that people eat less of anything.
8. The food industry funds front groups that fight antiobesity public health initiatives. Unless you follow politics closely, you wouldn’t necessarily realize that a group with a name like the Center for Consumer Freedom (CCF) has anything to do with the food industry. In fact, Ludwig and Nestle point out, this group has lobbied aggressively against obesity-related public health campaigns—such as the one directed at removing junk food from schools—and is funded, according to the Center for Media and Democracy, primarily through donations from big food companies such as Coca-Cola, Cargill, Tyson Foods, and Wendy’s.
9. The food industry works aggressively to discredit its critics. According to the 2008 JAMA article, the Center for Consumer Freedom boasts that “[our strategy] is to shoot the messenger. We’ve got to attack [activists’] credibility as spokespersons.” On its website, the group calls Nestle “one of the country’s most hysterical anti-food fanatics.”
10. “Pink slime” is on its way out—but it’s not gone. Ground meat is commonly bulked up with what critics call “pink slime,” butchering scraps that have been cleansed with ammonia. While the industry insists that its “lean, finely textured beef trimmings” are harmless, some experts are questioning the safety of the ubiquitous filler. Following a public outcry, the U.S. Department of Agriculture announced this month that school districts can choose between receiving beef with the trimmings or without, but at a higher fat content. A growing number of grocery stores, including Safeway and Supervalu, have announced that they’re ditching so-called “pink slime.” Still, it remains USDA-approved, and the food industry is free to use it.

The 10 Worst Foods to Feed Your Children
1. Kids’ Breakfast Cereal
Sure, that box of Cinnamon Toast Crunch or Captain Crunch might boast a boatload of vitamins and minerals on the label, but when you consider the amount of sugar and processed ingredients per serving, the miniscule amount of nutritional value they offer doesn’t count for much.
Nutritionists recommend that when you shop for a suitable cereal for your breakfast table, go for brands that contain at least 3-grams of fiber per serving and less than 10 grams of sugar. The best morning cereal that you can get junior hooked on is whole grain oatmeal, it’s high in fiber, vitamins, and minerals, and you can sprinkle on some berries and mix it with yogurt, or a dab of honey or real maple syrup.
2. Granola Bars
I know this might be a shocker (it was to me), but granola does not a healthy snack make. And many store-bought granola bars marketed to kids lack nutritional value more than the adult focus brands—they’re loaded with sugar and added ingredients like chocolate chips, marshmallows, candy, high fructose syrup, and artificial dyes, which makes one granola bar about as healthy as two cookies.
Instead, try whipping up a batch of homemade energy bars with natural ingredients like almond or peanut butter, raisins, coconut, whole grain cereal, honey, and dried fruit and nuts.
3. Luncheon Meats
Bologna, smoked ham, and even roast beef are a kids’ lunchbox staple. However, according to food experts, if your child eats a sliced meat sandwich every day, you may be packing them a very dangerous and toxic food.
Take a good look at the label, does junior’s favorite lunch meat contain nitrates, a preservative used in food processing that drastically increases the risk of heart disease and cancer.
4. Snack Cakes
I know your child looks forward to that Ho-Ho, Twinkie, or Wagon Wheel you pack in their lunch box every day. But as much as we love treating our kids, most processed snack cakes are ripe with trans fats, the most unhealthy processes fat known to mankind.
So if your child needs something sweet to cap off every meal, pack some mixed berries and grapes in their lunch pail or bake cookies or squares from scratch using natural ingredients.
5. French Fries
I know that most parents are aware that feeding their kids French Fries at every meal is asking for weight gain and the development of a very unhealthy habit. However, moderation is the key here.
If you’re going to feed your little one fries, keep them to a few meals per week and make them a side, not the starring food feature. Nutritionists warn that French fries offer very little in the way of nutritional value—they’re super high in fat and sodium. Unfortunately, the same goes for potato chips, cheesy snacks, and any fried and puffed snack food. Instead, opt for baked chips or make your kids baked potato wedges instead.
If you are in the habit of ordering pizza several times a week after a stressful day, be aware that the pizza that comes to your door is a far cry from the kind you make and bake in your oven at home. So put down the phone. You can quickly throw together a healthier homemade pie with store bought, whole wheat crust, natural, low-fat cheese, shredded chicken, and tons of veggies.

7. Juice Boxes
You know that juice boxes are bad news ever since you handed your 4 year old a fruit punch in the car for the first time. Did you ever get those stains out of your seat upholstery? However, juice boxes really don’t pack any nutritional value say food experts, so stop feeling so bad.
Not only are they packed with sugar, most commercial juices lack fiber and vitamins because they’re void of any real juice. Instead, blend up a batch of fruit smoothies with whole fruits, yogurt, and ice as a nutritious after school snack.
Packing a plastic baggie of crackers has saved my child from a meltdown time and time again. However, when I noticed the gratifying crunch I was feeding my child was made from processed, white flour, preservatives, unhealthy oils, I quickly swapped them for a brand make with fibrous whole grains.
Not only do they satisfy hunger for longer, they don’t leave my children tired and cranky. It’s really a win/win for everyone involved.
9. Soda Pop
My kids love soda, but dentists warn that serving pop on a daily basis means a mouthful of sugar at every meal. Not only does that affect your kids’ waistlines, it’s damaging to their teeth as well. And even diet soda contains a ton of toxic chemical sweeteners that should be served in moderation.
There are plenty of alternatives when it comes to drinks for children. Try all-natural fruit juices, milk or even water instead of pop at meals. Cutting back just a bit a day will go a long way in making your children healthier.
10. Fruit Snacks
Put down that strawberry fruit roll! It likely doesn’t contain any real fruit anyway. Nutritionists attest that most fruit snacks are actually candy masked in a health label—and no, “fruit juice” doesn’t count.
Instead, add some real fruit and fiber to your kids’ lunches in the form of dried whole fruit, like raisins or apricots, or fresh grapes, berries, and sliced apples and pears.

CERN is located in Geneva. Geneva and “Saint Geniis” are similar to the word “Genesis.” The purpose of CERN is to find the Origins of Man and the Universe. They have stated that they want to open a doorway to another dimension and find a God. Is it just a coincidence that CERN is short for the horned God Cernunnos? Is it also a coincidence that CERN has to go deep underground to do their “god” harnessing experiments? Cernunnos was the god of the underworld.
CERN is linked to several secret projects being carried out by the European Union and the European Trilateral Commission. CERN also is responsible for the internet and have been doing ongoing research for governments with regard to global sustainability.
It was also reported that in 1999 CERN proposed and carried out quantum Vortex experiments searching for Solar Axions. Axions are hypothetical particles that are components of dark matter. In order to find these Axions CERN proposed the use of a decommissioned magnet called SATAN.
It was an acronym for Solar Axion Telescopic Antenna.
One of the attempts at creating a portal anchor happened in an area where there is rumored to be an ancient Stargate in the real ancient Babylon, Iraq.
On September 8th, 2008 something happened in the Iraqi city of Al Hilla. Al Hilla has been rumored to be a city where a Stargate exists. It was reported that there was a cover up where nearly 20 American troops died as they attempted to cross through a gate conduit between the Collider at CERN and one of the anchor gates at Al Hilla. According the mainstream news reports the soldiers committed mass suicide.
