Sunday, May 22nd open thread: ‘Bring Me To Life’

May 22, 2016

open-thread  Here is the open thread for Sunday, May 22nd. Please feel free to post links to interesting articles and to discuss whatever issues arise during the course of the day. Nothing is off-topic here.

  Last week we discussed 9 stories, did you miss any of them? If so there is an easy way to make sure it does not happen again. I understand that all of you are busy and cannot always find the time to check the blog for updates so why not subscribe to America’s Watchtower and receive email updates whenever I write a new post? That is the easiest way to follow the blog to ensure you never miss another post.

  In addition to subscribing you can also follow America’s Watchtower on Facebook and Twitter by clicking the links on the right. But you will get more than that for I often post links to articles I probably will not be writing about so it is a great way to keep up with what is happening.

  The Twitter widget in the sidebar is fully interactive. This widget updates my tweets in real time and allows you to respond to or retweet my tweets right from the blog. It also allows you to tweet me right from America’s Watchtower. How cool is that! If you do not have a Twitter account what better reason do you need to sign up for one!

  Here is Evanescence performing “Bring Me To Life” preformed live. 

  In this song Amy Lee sings about being broken inside and she sings about looking for someone to “save me from the nothing I’ve become.” She is most likely singing about a relationship which has gone bad and the feeling of desperation which comes in the wake of it but there is someone who can save you when you are broken and down–she is looking in the wrong place…

  Psalm 34:18: “The LORD is near to the brokenhearted and saves those who are crushed in spirit.”

  Psalm 147:3: “He heals the brokenhearted And binds up their wounds.”

        I think Amy Lee has a great voice and I always liked this song. I built another raised bet yesterday and today we got a few vegetables in it, still need more and next weekend we hope to have everything in it.

    Like your selected verses Steve – we know from experience don’t we that when we’re going thru some heartfelt times there seems to be a Supernatural covering over us and the situation. Some realize it and others don’t, or cannot, until they connect to the Source of this Life. Words of Spirit and Life.
    “But the natural man receiveth not the things of the Spirit of God: for they are foolishness unto him: neither can he know them, because they are spiritually discerned.” 1 Corinthians 2:14 Plugging into the right Source can make all the difference in the world … make us free indeed!
    With all the $$$$ going to this Agency one might wonder what’s going on if what they’re showing isn’t real. Is ‘seeing’ really believing? or is it just another (digital) painting?

    This makes fun of bathroom transexual agenda (once again to distort and destroy moral and ethical standards, by the perverted, insane ruling elite – who most are pedophiles/occultist):

    And what they’re doing the value of $$.

      I sure do know firsthand how God can put you at ease in times of trouble and I try to remind myself of this every day. I have not had a chance to watch the videos yet but I will.

      I have to admit I never really understood backward masking because how many people listed to albums backwards? Can it still be effective even when being played forward? I do not know. I remember years ago hearing about the backward masking in “Stairway” and I actually did listen to it backwards and at the “whispering wind” part I clearly heard “I live with Satan.” I cannot believe this is just a coincidence.
      The South Park video was funny yet sad at the same time.
      Ronnie James Dio was a heavy metal icon and if you look hard when you turn his logo over you can see it becomes “devil.”

        The playing backwards is something Crowley promoted in his satanic writings. Occult Law of Reversal: “talking (reverse speech), walking, thinking, and playing phonograph records, backwards. This is a form of divination, and we are warned against this in the Holy Bible.”
        I don’t know much about it or if it does really affect the ‘subconscious’ mind subliminally, but it’s something to consider. Some of the things this current puppet prez states ‘yes we can’ when played backwards says what he’s really about.

        Here’s a few things:

        ‘Let the night begin there’s a pop of skin
        And the sudden rush of scarlet
        There’s a little boy riding on a goat’s head
        And a little girl playing the harlot
        There’s a sacrifice in an empty church
        Of sweet li’l baby Rose
        And a man in a mask from Mexico
        Is peeling off my clothes ‘…
        Disney kids were abused in many ways and that’s why we’re seeing them doing what they’re doing today. It’s all part of the Agenda, anti-God socialization process. Without God, this is what’s left. Some think they can live w/out either, but … that’s doesn’t seem to be the way it works.

      Yep, that’s a good one Lou – interesting find! I tried to relocate to Kalispell (the online paper linked) years back when living in MN, didn’t work out, but the train trip was fun! It goes thru Glacier Park area down into Whitefish, which is N. of Kalispell. A fun trip for your hubby and you!
      The problem today regarding the 1984 concerns is that they (the evils that be) will start putting the mind controlling and altering nanobots in the chemtrail – air, food, water, etc (may already be) to make it easier for their Utopian Order (their idea of heaven on earth – which is hell for the majority who are left alive). Like the old Western movies, we need some ‘loners’ who work behind the scenes of those working behind the scenes! Which there probably are, we just don’t know about them, lest we blab and the enemy hears!
      When it all comes down to what’s needed it’s the Very ONE that all these demonic’s are wanting to be – and are imitating in their own sick and pervert way! ‘THE PRINCE OF PEACE (who’s power and grandness they desire)! HIS Job is all set and ready to make the crooked, straight! Thanks for the posting.

        I remember reading books OR watching movies from years ago that are sure relevant today. Makes me wonder how they had that insight OR were they just lucky!!
        My hubby is going up to Canada and Alaska again this summer for a couple months…I stay home and “hold down the fort”, as my Mom always said with the rentals….both of us could not be gone that long….I bet a train trip would be beautiful up north. My grandsons are coming to stay with us for a week after the beginning of June…there is a train museum over in Monticello, Il, not too far from here….they have about a 7-8 mile ride you take….we did it last year and they got to ride up in the lookout seats in the caboose. It was a diesel last year, but will have a steam engine there this year….I have told you guys before how I have a passion for trains, in particular steam! Nana (me), will like the ride too and will probably ask to stand out at the back of the caboose, again.
        Glad you mentioned chemtrails, you know there are people that think someone that believes in them is just plain nuts….I am NOT of that opinion.

        Sounds like a fun train ride – yes I like trains too Lou, they just have a certain ‘something’ about them that takes one into a ‘nice trip’:) Yes, the rentals keep you tied down – but maybe one day you & hubby could find a fill-in for a short train trip vacation together!
        A neighbor who keeps up with fraud in the Gov and system, is one of those who ‘won’t see’ that condensation doesn’t last that last long and make strange looking clouds = they’re chemtrails. I guess it doesn’t matter in the long run. There’s so many things we were ‘led’ to believe as true that aren’t, we probably won’t know them all before we die. People like karl rove parrot, that they create the ‘reality’ and to a point that’s true. What a lousy job they do at it!

        I wish Karl Rove would just “go away” and not show his face on tv again. However, I do not have to watch him anymore since i do not have cable tv now.

        On a side note, my hubby was talking to the neighbors dad out back today and came in to tell me he had gotten “into it”, with the guy and the guy turned around and walked off. He asked my hubby if he had voted for Obama and he said NO to both times…so the guy said the reason he didn’t vote for him was because he is black and has a Muslim name….neither reason was valid…he didn’t vote for him because he came from Illinois and we knew how he voted here and was not experienced enough to be the President….I think the case has been made that it turned out to be TRUE.

        Back to the chemtrails, those condensation trails sure stick around for a long time, don’t they?

        You are right Lou, once the race card was played there was no use carrying on the debate any more because obviously the person was not going to listen. Why waste the time, right?
        The Cure’s debut album came out in 1979 but they were an alternative band who got no airplay in America. I happened to find an alternative/college station one day which was playing all sorts of music I had not heard before and that is where I found them. They had a little bit of commercial success in the late ’80’s and early ’90’s but most of the people that I know who are my age never heard of them either.

        From what I have read, the behind the scenes of the behind the scenes people are The White Hat Society…have you heard of them before? They have articles that have “report #” before them….

        Just search and you will find more on them….they are everywhere.

        Thanks Lou. I’d heard of them. Checked the site and wouldn’t bank too much on them though turning the wave, because of what they deem as true. Won’t get into all that though. The world system is what it is because it’s tainted and will be until it’s really cleaned up by Truth.

    The First Dude in waiting may add to Hillary’s woes. Apparently the Clinton foundation gave a private company which the owners are friends of the Clintons – a violation of the 501C rules, 2 million and access to a government loan. But hey these are the Clintons and rules don’t apply to them. One of the partners is Julie Tauber McMahon [her FBI code name is Energizer] of Chappaqua, N.Y., a close [she only shows up when Hillary is out of town],friend of Mr. Clinton, who [just so happens to],also lives in Chappaqua.

        I think a friend with “benefits”. At least the FBI agents assigned to WJC seemed to think so. She did not have to pass through any security screening. They also preferred her to Hill – she brought them home baked cookies.

      There are rumors that the FBI investigation is actually focused on Bill and The Clinton Foundation. There is no doubt in my mind there is something shady going on there, I just hope the FBI is not “convinced” by the Clinton’s it would be very wise for them to drop the investigation, if you catch my drift…

        The movie was with Marlon Brando and is a bit unsettling to watch. It doesn’t have a good outcome in the movie as I would expect it to not have it in the real world, either.
