Vigilant Citizen: Occult Website for the True Believers

Shots from the most evil airport on earth, as reported by Vigilant Citizen

At first, I hesitated blogging about The Vigilant Citizen, a site that exposes the Masonic/Illuminati symbolism present in everyday things ranging from pop stars to national monuments. The site had to be a joke, I told myself, poking fun at occult nuts the same way that Christwire pokes fun at religious zealots. I’m not so sure, though. It feels like too much research to be fake, and yet it feels too silly to be real (case in point: Lady Gaga, The Illuminati Puppet). Whether or not the site is faux, it’s attracted some true believers! As one commenter writes in response to the the Gaga post:

This is truly amazing im shocked. I believe god told me to check this site. I feel like a total fool I wad becoming a fan of hers. Im totally conviced that this is what she’s trying to convey.

So dive right in, and have an occultastic good time! My favorite article is a toss-up between Top 5 Worst 9/11 Memorials and Vigilant’s analysis of the Denver National Airport (part of his Sinister Sites series, which examines the architectural occultism of buildings from all over the world). In a style that reminds me somewhat of Weird New Jersey, the latter article gives us a spooky tour of the most evil airport in America, introducing us to the apocalyptic horse with glowing red eyes that guards the entrance, the airport’s nightmarish murals, the arcane symbols embedded in the floor, the gargoyle statues, and of course the Nazi swastika-shaped runway. All part of the impending New World Order! Enjoy.

    Illuminati-related conspiracies have never been my favorite, but Vigilant really is just too great to pass up! Also, I’ve flown to that Denver airport a number of times and always had great flights to and from! I wonder if THAT means anything…

  2. Tequila Says:

    I stumbled on that site when going through various 9/11 conspiracies. Be it a total joke or humorously serious it hits the tone of many painfully hardcore conspiracy sites minus the creepy web graphics circa 1998.

    I love this kinda stuff even if you know Dan Brown will eventually fill his next “book” with 90% of what you read.

    Ah Denver International…that place has had a bad rep since it opened. Having been there a few times it’s well deserved…

  3. Jerem Morrow Says:

    Doo bee doo bee doo. Glad your hesitation lost out. :)

  4. David Forbes Says:

    I utterly lost it when I hit the “Lady Gaga as Illuminati puppet” article, especially the comparison of her logo to that of the Waffen-SS.

    Seriously, ribs still aching from laughter. Ow.

    Thanks for revealing this, Nadya. I have a feeling much amusement is ahead.

  5. Chris L Says:

    Ugh. I don’t even have the patience to laugh at stuff like this any more. At least, not very hard. I’d have to be a robot (an ILLUMINATI PUPPET?) to not get at least a chuckle out of the Gaga post.

    This brand of conspiracy theory bothers me at least as much as fundamentalist religion, since those who engage in it are obviously smart enough to do “deep readings” of cultural symbolism… but too deluded to put that intelligence to any constructive use. There’s the same old teleology at work, too…

  6. MerkwürdigLiebe Says:

    If your into conspiracy therorys, you should give Umberto Eco’s Foucault’s Pendulum a try. It’s a story about 3 guys making up their own conspiracy theory to make fun about all the “believers” but in the end they somehow think that their own creation is real…
    anyhow, wikipedia calls it the thinking person’s Da Vinci Code

    Btw, conspiracy therories are pure fashistic evil (no joke), designed to hate your worst enemy (real or imagined) even more.
    A hundred years ago it were the jews, controling the mass media and world finance. Today it’s the USA or CIA who tricked poor japan into attacking pearl harbor, faked the moon landings and so on

  7. Nadya Says:

    MerkwürdigLiebe, that’s one of my favorite books! I should re-read it actually. Thank you for bringing it up. Actually, I just found the greatest thing that Eco said about Dan Brown, answering the question of whether or not Eco has read the Da Vinci Code:

    I was obliged to read it because everybody was asking me about it. My answer is that Dan Brown is one of the characters in my novel Foucault’s Pendulum, which is about people who start believing in occult stuff.

    But you yourself seem interested in the kabbalah, alchemy and other occult practices explored in the novel.

    No. In Foucault’s Pendulum I wrote the grotesque representation of these kind of people. So Dan Brown is one of my creatures

    Oi, I just came through Denver International on my way to Moscow! I don’t remember seeing half the murals they depicted though. It really is halarious what some people will come up with.

    (“Is it supposed to be ‘native’ art representing mother earth? Looks like an alien ‘sprinkling’ life on earth!” – Ha!)

  9. radian Says:

    Denver airport’s mural is/was pretty sinister ( @Alice ) I think they repainted some of it.

    The Lady Gaga bit is hilarious, I hope it was meant that way?

  10. Alex Says:

    The Manitoba Legislative Building?! Anyone who has ever been to Manitoba can assure you that there is nothing mysterious about anything in that province. The ghost towns are coooool though.

  11. Sam Says:

    I truly appreciate all the work that has gone into Vigilant Citizen and the exposing of the most unexpected things. I believe we live in a world where,we are so ignorant ( be you religious or not). These kinds of things are happening before our very eyes and we are asleep, we are ready to accept anything whatever it may be, but not considering that it may be evil hiding behind a facade of inocence and goodness. God bless the whole team of Vigilant Citizen, because it is a way of witnessing to people about Christ. Even if a person who thinks the articles are a joke, atleast they’ve read it and a seed of truth has been sown in their heart, even if they don’t realise it. The things talked about in this site are definitely not a coincidence, we are reaching the end times and many prophecies in the Bible are being quickly fulfilled. Like how we see the New World Order, approaching, it means that the Lord’s Coming is coming sooner than we think. But,with that God tells us that we don’t need to fear because his coming will be gain to those who believe in Him. They will live with him in Heaven forever and ever without any troubles and sin, but you who still haven’t accepted Him..there is still time. Jesus knocks at your door continually,wont you open the door for Him? Nothing you can do or offer to God can save you, it is only His grace. I don’t know but that assures me everyday, because that is what makes Christianity different from other world religions. In Christianity, you are accepted,therefore you obey where as in all other religions, you obey and therefore you are accepted. Christ grace alone saves you, you don’t have to do certain rituals or be initiated in order to be accepted by Christ. If you just believe in Him, His grace is sufficient enough to save you. May you all be Blessed !

    …been to DIA a few times. I couldn’t say about CONSPIRACIES, but the place is downright weird. It’s one of those places (like Texas) that feels like poo between my toes.

  13. Demzon Says:

    I spent a few years in DIA everyday and watched it being built. This is very much like a Rorschach test for the paranoid. They did no research in to any factual information and blew it all off as ‘things planted by the NWO.’ The mural they are going on about is in the main terminal so you wouldn’t have seen it if you just passed through in a connecting flight. There are four terminals; Main, concourse A, B, and C. Main and A are connected by a pedestrian bridge on the second level but the rest are access by train only. One Person mentioned going trough on the way to Moscow; likely concourse C. Cant remember if that is the one with the miniature city or the transportation history installment in the center.
    I did almost forget about that site. I’ll have to go rip them a new one with facts and real data that wasn’t just pulled out of a rectal cavity. Used to be a good past time of mine.

  14. R. Says:

    Late to the party as always.

    I’ve always had a thing for Illuminanti conspiracies and symbolism used in stuff. Solely because I was a weird child who grew up to be a weird woman still obsessed with that kind of stuff. Of course sometimes symbols are used without knowing the true background or history of the symbol (i.e. the swastika and the Nazis). Also people tend to read too much into things sometimes…the Lady Gaga article being one of those sometimes.

  15. simontaylor Says:

    You are all blind. And you don’t see anything wrong with Lord GaGas “performance” at VMA awards? To be honest we are in dark times & “Amerikas” people will be fucked first. I will say this, get back to me in 12 months, see what you think of your land of the free. You sheep never were free. Bin Laden? lol

    On CIA payroll 1986-1996 & met British government officials in mid 90’s. Do your research.


  16. Sophia Ithothe Says:

    Yeah, why make such a fuss about such normal things as gas-mask-wearing men, dead people, and children wearing Nazi clothes. All in a day’s work, so used to it all we are. And why bother about songs revealing their singers’ ‘weird’ interaction with strange spirits? As some of the correspondents say, it’s not as if it’s ‘real’, this satan thing. And in any case, none of the above-mentioned things (death scenes at DIA, Lady Gaga , Beyonce, Rihanna etc) have been written about in the MAINSTREAM newspapers or been talked about in CNN or ABC or whatever. So, how can we take them seriously??

  17. kc Says:

    LMAO for sure the only hiddin messages in VC’s website are the ones that he want to god fearing christians to hear…he twist and turns the specimin until it is what he wants it to sound like….he refers to baphomet like a million times wether it be a goats head or a gazelle lol

    Most of you guys need to quit living with you head in the sand. Vigilant Citizen is based on facts. I thought it was all BS at first, but if you research all of the info it is awakening. Research who owns the record labels, look up their families history. This stuff really is going on. Why? I don’t know. Will the world end tomorrow? No. I took me a solid 10 hrs of researching facts to release this is legit. Just open your minds and quit sticking to what your predetermined thought of the world really is.

  20. bbblaze Says:

    What about 2-pac? You never heard Killuminati? Where do you think that name came from. There are multi articles out there to back up vigilant. As for the Denver airport, what is not to believe? Out of all the things in this world, why would the go with that theme? These are not sculptures someone just created, they are historic symbols that were created years ago to represent what viligant says. And the Rockefeller’s, you can do good things and still be a bad person. Did you know they have been known to fund both sides of foreign wars? It is all about the $. I will not go on and on, nor do I have a major opinion as to what is ‘right’ and ‘wrong’. Just wanted to say don’t be a fool. Be an educated citizen and not another cattle in the herd.

  23. Johnny0 Says:

    Lady Gaga sold her soul to the illuminati / NWO for fame and fortune.
    Lyrics like” I want your death…I want your disease’ are psychological conditioning from the people bent on death and distruction.
    Unfortunately she probably didn’t realise what she got into until after the contract was signed. Now she is doomed with no way out.
    I bet that she does a crash and burn …like so many others who fall into the trap in their search for fame.
    This will happen either when she realises that she is trapped or when they are finished using her.

    “I took me a solid 10 hrs of researching facts to release this is legit.” – bblaze

    Oh my god, you guys, a teenager who can’t spell and possesses poor grammar skills put in ten hours of research to confirm to you all that this must be true! Did you hear me? TEN WHOLE HOURS!!! That must be, like, the longest anyone’s ever studied anything!

    Your mastery of Google has amazed me.

  25. Trinosophia Says:

    I have been researching symbolism – Whether you like it or not alot of the information is true.. Symbolism used in religion, freemasons, government buildings – And some people comment with “I LoL’d” and “Nutcases”..
    Impressive, but what can you expect these days…

    Check out if you want to learn more on your own, but of course that would mean you would have to pick up a book, so the chance of that happening is pretty slim, I guess..

    And Im not some old phuck, I just care about what happens in my lifetime, I want to take responsibility (but of course that sucks, right?!) and I want to become wiser with the intend of creating a better future (That sucks too right ?!)


  26. Planet X Nibiru 2012 Says:

    I personally believe it is all a big cover up.

  27. LiZz Says:

    I just dont understand why you ignorant people dont believe. I mean, if its because you dont have a religion or because it just sounds like theres no way the government and our favorite artist would be in on something like this…its ridiculous to be thinking like that. First of all, we dont know these people who we praise so much. Who are these famous musians and actors and actoresses? It’s like we think we know them because we watch E! and TMZ but noo we dont, therefore they could have been hehind all this. I mean maybe they really didnt know before they signed that paper, (because some people are so hungr for that fame and success)but im sure after, they kneww, and there’s no backing out. Its crazy how Micheal Jackson spoke on it, 2pac spoke on it, Omarian from B2K spoke on it, Tiffany Evans spoke on it, Lauren Hill..OH..but then theres the ones who have spoke about it but making it sound like its NOT true because they ARE apart of it. like jay-z rick ross lady gaga rhianna beyonce any politician… i mean what needs to happend before people can actually believe? like why are these people laughing at stuff like this. its sad. these people are draging all of YOU people to hell and you dont even know it. please wakee your research. Its not like this is all a big coincidence..its all to much for it BE a coincidence..theres no wayy. The greatest trick the Devil ever pulled was convincing the world … that he doesn’t exist! THINK ABOUT IT!!!. God Bless You.

  28. Cogent Says:

    So…let me get this straight. You guys sit around all day and whine about how annoying those over-the-top conspiracy theorists are? I’m not sure whats more annoying; the conspiracy theories or YOU guys who sit around and whine about them. I read someone post about how the conspiracy theorists should put their intelligence to use for something constructive. HA! Talk about the epitome of hypocrisy.

    Sorry. No offense intended, I think its alright if you whine. Its a free internet. :) Just find it funny that’s all.

  29. Mer Says:

    We find it funny, too. Which is why we’re not whining, dear. We’re giggling. Big diffy.

  30. Cathleen Freestrong Says:

    Yes, and have you ever seen “The Dark Knight” or “The Imaginarium of Dr. Parnassus”? I swear, Heath was brainwashed…

  31. johnsonb Says:

    The Vigilant Citizen website censored my comment that showed scientific journal articles that proved one of their articles wrong. I used to browse his website and message boards all the time but ever since they did that I view him as being more on the sensationalist side of things. I do believe a lot of his articles are true and show some crazy things that are happening. However, if he can’t admit he is wrong once in a while and has to delete comments by people who have a good strong research-backed argument against his article, that’s no better than some of the bad people he is writing about because it is covering up the truth. It’s just not very trustworthy. For the record the article was about news people suddenly talking gibberish while on air. He was saying there’s no known medical explanation for this and that the people may be mind-control victims. Actually there is a (not too uncommon) medical condition called Wernicke’s aphasia, that can cause sudden and temporary babble-speak because of damage to Wernicke’s area of the brain, and can be caused temporarily by seizures, auras preceding migraines, and epilepsy.

  32. eddie Says:

    All I know is that site isn’t what it appears to be. When I tried to point out that something they said was wrong, they deleted my comment and blocked me from commenting again. To all who will listen, please boycott that website……..They’re much worse and much much more dangerous than the people they’re trying to “expose”….those that want to know more, leave me a comment or a message on

  33. "in the know" Says:

    The individual behind VC is definitely an illuminati witch. Some illuminati clan is behind the website like most websites like that.

  34. Me Says:

    VC is a paranoid schizo who has eternal issues with satanist daddy and grandpa coz they used to penetrate his anus. If you see around his site usernames such as Sarah Connor-Yomael-joanna-Fleurdamour-Sofia-IgnotumArcanus-Syrus-Doctortrollcat-Sirrah-Sara-Mark-tornbanknote-SFrichie-All Seeing Oracle-Lone_Wolf and many others that I can’t recall now, be aware that they are VC himself. The guy is a demonized multiple personality dictator, a basket case who suffers from paranoid schizophrenia and he gets his jollies by trying to mind control and abuse others. IMO he should be institutionalized. That’s my 2 cents and you can keep the change. Cheers!

    These guys own and operate the

    Michael Kanfi


    Mitch Joel

    Joel is an online marketing genius who also owns Distort Entertainment and “produces” music for “underground” or “urban” band in Montreal and Toronto. Mickael lives in Laval where VigilantCitizen runs his operation out of. Henrik Ryosa of is also one of their accomplices who also knows a lot of digitial media and was once working with Joel on Distort Entertainment until realizing separate ideas would pull them in separate directions. Henrik now lives in Sweden and runs a production/media company of his own, but helps to steer people in certain directions with online contributions mainly to VC’s forum.

    The two of Joel and Kanfi have enough insider information to concoct the stories on VC, and knowledge between them to get thousands of viewers a day, upwards to 40k. Look at the google ads on that site and realize they’re making major BANK. Enough to justify launching two more copy cat sites
