  Earlier this month, federal judges in Seattle, WA suspended President Trump’s travel ban from seven Muslim-majority countries, stating that it violated a Constitutional clause which prohibits religious discrimination.  American leaders and world leaders alike voiced their objections to the ban along with all those who protested online, at airports, in the streets, and with their [...]

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=orGx_V72Wk4 (This powerful video is from Sarah Ferguson’s sentencing last fall; Judge Dwyer and District Attorney McNamara we were told have since learned a good dela about how people can be unduly influenced by high-demand groups.)   On Monday, Bruce and Deborah Leonard received prison sentences (he: 10 years, she: 5 years) for participating in [...]

National Slavery and Human Trafficking Prevention Month

By | January 17th, 2017|Categories: Blog, Current Events|

Human trafficking is a variation of undue influence.  Trafficking rings function as commercial cults, with pimps and traffickers as their cult leaders.  They use the same basic methods (outlined in the BITE Model) to recruit, control, and exploit victims. As January is the official National Slavery and Human Trafficking Prevention Month, I’d like to take a [...]

JW Leadership Fails to Protect Children

Guest Blog by Steve Guziec   When I was a Jehovah’s Witness, I prided myself on knowing I was part of the only true Christian organization on the planet earth because of the love shown in “Jehovah’s Organization.”  I told myself and others this for decades.  One of the largest “comforts” to me was knowing that [...]

  It has been a little over a week since Donald Trump lost the popular vote but won the electoral college delegates needed for the 2016 Presidential election.  Civil rights groups have reported hundreds of hate crimes against women, racial minorities, and Muslims.  Trump supporters have also reported harassment and violence against them.  (I highly recommend [...]

A Call to Activism

From Combating Cult Mind Control (2015) I am still recovering from shock and dismay over the results of the 2016 American presidential election.  I still stand by my appraisal of Donald Trump as a person who holds the stereotypical characteristics of a cult leader. Now that he is America’s President-elect, we have an even greater opportunity [...]

Does Trump Display the Stereotypical Profile of a Cult Leader?

  There are many reasons to be saddened, disgusted, confused, outraged, scared, and even traumatized by Trump’s presidential campaign. He has just declared a “scorched earth policy” and is saying there is an “international conspiracy that is persecuting him” and he is just a “martyr for the cause of America.” In studying cults and their leaders [...]

  Earlier this month, former Ohio divorce attorney Michael W. Fine pleaded guilty to five counts of kidnapping and one count of attempted kidnapping. His crimes were not typical. Instead of using brute physical force, Fine used hypnosis. In court documents Fine was accused of hypnotizing female clients for sexual purposes. According to my information, the [...]

  This coming Sunday marks fifteen years since the 9/11 terrorist attacks.  On the morning of September 11, 2001 our nation was changed forever.  Many lives were lost, and many of us were left in shock and disbelief as we helplessly watched the scenes of horror on our TV screens.  We spent the next few days [...]
