John Baldwin
This is the never-before-told, riveting true story about a teenage Christian girl who was seduced online by a charming young Muslim man from Kosovo, and her father who ultimately worked with the FBI to save her from disappearing forever.

The Baldwins were a strong Christian family, living in Plano, Texas. When their seventeen-year-old daughter, Mackenzie, met Aadam in a random-match online chat room, she fell for his good looks, his charm, and his respectful conversation. He told her he lived in New York, and they began an online friendship.

But over the course of a few months, Aadam revealed that he actually lived in Kosovo and had only pretended to live in New York so Mackenzie would keep chatting with him. The more attached she became to Aadam, the more detached she became from her family.

John and Stephanie, Mackenzie’s parents, had no clue what was behind their daughter’s change in personality, her surprising interest in Islam, her suddenly modest dress, and her withdrawal from friends and family. When Mackenzie’s attachment to Aadam increased even more and they became “engaged,” she started making plans to secretly fly to Kosovo where she and Aadam would be married.

But twenty-five days before Mackenzie was scheduled to fly to Kosovo, John found out about his daughter’s dangerous plan when three of her friends came forward. John contacted the FBI, and asked for help. Though the FBI did not believe Aadam was trying to radicalize Mackenzie, they were concerned about his intentions, as that part of Kosovo was known for sex-trafficking, human-trafficking, and citizenship frauds. Kosovo was no place for an unaccompanied, naïve teenager to secretly travel and marry a stranger she knew only through online chats. Within the limited time remaining before Mackenzie’s departure, John and Stephanie had to confront Mackenzie and stop her before she would be lost to them forever.

Told from the viewpoint of both father and daughter, Almost Gone follows Mackenzie’s network of lies and deceit and her parents’ escalating bewilderment and alarm. More than a cautionary tale, this is the incredible story of unconditional parental love, unwavering faith, and how God helped a family save their daughter from a relationship that jeopardized not only her happiness, but also her safety.

Is it happening to you? You wake up at night, look at the clock, and notice that it is 11:11 p.m. This happens again the next night, and the next. You think it is a coincidence, but what if you were to discover that it was happening to others—possibly millions of others—all over the world? And that it meant something...something important? The reports of people noticing strange and repeated associations with the number 11 are on the rise, prompting theories connecting this phenomenon with the coming Mayan calendar end date of 12/21/2012. But it’s not just the number 11 that is showing up in people—s lives, it is often accompanied by unusual events or profound insights. Mysterious numbers and strange sequences appear throughout the history of human experience. What do they mean? What secrets do they keep? Are these wake-up calls to a higher state of consciousness, triggers of paranormal experiences, or the activation of what some scientists refer to as “junk DNA”?In this fascinating new work, You’ll learn about: "• Number-based patterns in nature—such as the Fibonacci spiral, the golden ratio, and DNA sequences—and the secrets of sacred geometry. "• Synchronicity: The science behind coincidences and what they might be trying to tell us. "• How the entire universe can be condensed into a handful of mathematical numbers and equations. "• The power of numerology in human lives. "• Is God a number? How numbers relate to the creative force behind all reality.

“This exemplary and alarming book chronologically details the vast array of coercive mind control methods and techniques—from those used in ancient times all the way to the Cold War/MKUltra years and, finally, the present-day use of directed energy weapons. Mind Wars is a must-read for those who desire a comprehensive understanding of the subversive alteration and modification of human behavior, on a micro and macro scale.”

—Ron Patton, publisher of MKzine and Paranoia Magazine

“It is extremely unnerving to consider what has been done and will be done in order to subdue human consciousness. This is a must-read for those who refuse to join the consensus trance.”

—Patrick Whyte, co-owner/operator of Conspiracy Culture Bookstore

From the dawn of humanity, the desire to control the thoughts, behaviors, and actions of others has been a pervasive one. From the use of coercive persuasion by ancient Egyptians and the Knights Templar to today’s claims of electronic harassment and microwave “bombing,” we have always been at the mercy of those who wish to reprogram our thoughts and reshape our beliefs.

Mind Wars includes fascinating stories of:
Ancient attempts at mind control using spell casting, potions, and rituals.
Cults and the use of mental reprogramming.
More modern mind-control techniques, from hypnosis, drugs, and electroshock to radiation and psychic driving.
The inside story of the quest for a real Manchurian Candidate—MKUltra and the CIA connection.
The brave new world of electronic harassment, “voice to skull” technology, and gang-stalking.

The inner frontier of the human mind is the last bastion of privacy. But are we really in control of our own minds? The answer may shock you!"

Quit playing it safe and start running toward the roar! 

When the image of a man-eating beast travels through the optic nerve and into the visual cortex, the brain sends the body a simple but urgent message: run away! That’s what normal people do, but not lion chasers. Rather than seeing a five-hundred-pound problem, they see an opportunity for God to show up and show His power.
 
Chase the Lion is more than a catch phrase; it’s a radically different approach to life. It’s only when we stop fearing failure that we can fully seize opportunity by the mane. With grit and gusto, New York Times best-selling author Mark Batterson delivers a bold message to everyone with a big dream.

This is a wake-up call to stop living as if the purpose of life was to simply arrive safely at death. Our dreams should scare us. They should be so big that without God they would  be  impossible to achieve. Quit running away from what you’re afraid of.
 
Chase the lion! 
Change the world!

What is your five-hundred-pound dream?

In this highly anticipated sequel to his best-selling In a Pit with a Lion on a Snowy Day, Mark Batterson invites lion chasers everywhere to chase dreams so impossible that victory demands we face our fears, defy the odds, and hold tight to God.

These are the kind of dreams that will make you a bigger person and the world a better place.
Based upon 2 Samuel 23, Chase the Lion tells the true story of an ancient warrior named Benaiah who chased a lion into a pit on a snowy day—and then killed it. For most people, that situation wouldn’t just be a problem…it would be the last problem they ever faced. For Benaiah, it was an opportunity to step into his destiny. After defeating the lion, he landed his dream job as King David’s bodyguard and eventually became commander-in-chief of Israel’s army under King Solomon.

Written in a way that both challenges and encourages, this revolutionary book will help unleash the faith and courage you need to identify, chase, and catch the five-hundred-pound dreams in your life.

        منذ بدء الخليقة ظلّت الرغبة في السيطرة على أفكار الآخرين، وسلوكهم وأفعالهم، واسعة الانتشار، انطلاقًا من الإقناع القهري الذي مارسه قدماء المصريين وفرسان الهيكل، إلى ما نشاهده اليوم من غارات إلكترونية وقذائف موجهة بالموجات الكهرومغناطيسية، ما جعلنا نعيش دومًا تحت رحمة أولئك الراغبين في إعادة برمجة أفكارنا، وتشكيل معتقداتنا وفق مشيئتهم.

يحتوي هذا الكتاب على حكايات مدهشة، تشمل:

• المحاولات القديمة للسيطرة على العقل باستخدام السحر، والعقاقير الطبية، والطقوس والشعائر.

• المعتقدات الدينية وتوظيف إعادة برمجة العقل.

• التقنيات الحديثة للسيطرة على العقل، من التنويم المغناطيسي، والمخدرات، والصدمات الكهربائية، إلى الإشعاع والطب النفسي.

• التحقيق في مرشح منشوريا وعلاقة وكالة المخابرات الأمريكية المركزية بمشروع حرب النجوم.

• عالم الهجمات الإلكترونية الجديد الشجاع، تقنية السيطرة على العقل من خلال الصوت والمراقبة الشاملة.


        صحيح أن الحدود الداخلية لعقل الإنسان تعد آخر معاقل خصوصيته الحصينة، لكن: هل نحن فعلًا نسيطر على عقولنا؟ ربما تكون الإجابة صادمة حقًّا.
