According to two news articles published in the Springfield NEWS-LEADER and by KSMU News, both dated January 17, 2013, SPRINGFIELD CITY OFFICIALS have finally succeeded in luring two ANTI-AMERICAN CULT Conventions to Springfield in June/July 2013.

In June 2012, a SPANISH-SPEAKERS ONLY Cult Convention will be held at
Missouri State University's JQH Arena, and then during the 4th of July Holiday, a CULT CONVENTION will be held for English speakers.

According to CVB President TRACY KIMBERLIN, the Springfield Convention & Visitors Bureau has been working FOR TWO YEARS to lure the WATCHTOWER CULT to Springfield. In fact, TRACY KIMBERLIN claimed credit for negotiating the deal which brought the WATCHTOWER CULT, the CITY OF SPRINGFIELD, and MISSOURI STATE UNIVERSITY together in this partnership.

What TRACY KIMBERLIN has yet to disclose is HOW MUCH FINANCIAL SUBSIDIES did the Springfield Convention & Visitors Bureau provide to the WATCHTOWER CULT to get their Brooklyn, New York headquarters to decide to relocate these two conventions from their previous location?

Springfield TAXPAYERS should DEMAND that the Mayor and City Council FULLY DISCLOSE the terms of this Deal, including HOW MUCH MONEY or other financial considerations were given to the WATCHTOWER CULT.

In the meantime, Springfield citizens and VOTERS should know what this ANTI-AMERICAN CULT will be using their TAX DOLLARS to teach over the Independence Day Holiday over at Missouri State University's JQH Arena.

In the mid 1930s, the Watch Tower Society started forbidding Jehovah's Witnesses to salute the American Flag, or recite the Pledge Of Allegiance, or stand for the playing of the National Anthem, or engage in any other patriotic activity.
Jehovah's Witnesses were taught to tell the news media, courts,and other outsidersthat the American Flag is a false idol, and doing any of the aforementioned activities is performing "worship" to a false idol.

This "public relations" reasoningis actually theLEAST of all the reasons that Jehovah's Witnesses refuse to engage in any patriotic or political activities. This secondary, ancillary reasoning was developed because the WatchTower Society did not dareto have its Jehovah's Witness members running around repeating forthe news mediaand courtroom judges the PRIMARY doctrine on this subject, which would outrage the American public.

What Jehovah's Witnesses intentionally do NOT publically explain to non-JWs is that the Watch Tower Society teaches Jehovah's Witnesses that the Government of the United States is governing ILLEGITIMATELY.

The Watch Tower Society teaches that the Government of the United States is under the control of Satan the Devil as his partner inSatan's universal rebellion against GOD. The Watch Tower Society teaches that GOD granted humans the authority to rule the earth only for a period of 2520 years -- starting in 607 B.C. and ending in October, 1914 A.D. The Watch Tower Society teaches that in October, 1914, the authority to rule the earth reverted back to GOD, and that He then formed a heavenly government to rule the earth.
The Watch Tower Society teaches that in 1919 that the Watch Tower Society was selected as the SOLE earthly representative ofthat heavenly government.

The Watch Tower Society teaches that the Government of the United States is its' enemy, because it has failed to surrender governmental power that rightfully belongs to the Watch Tower Society.

These are theACTUAL reasons that the Watch Tower Society forbids its Jehovah's Witness members tosupport the government of the United States-- no voting, no holding political office, no professing citizen loyalty via the Pledge of Allegiance or standing for the National Anthem, no joining the military to protect the United States, etc.

The Watch Tower Societyteaches that Armageddon will occur "soon", and at the Battle of Armageddon, that Jesus Christ and hisheavenly armies will ATTACK and DESTROY the GOVERNMENT of the UNITED STATES, and its military --- as well as all Americanswho did not convert to the Jehovah's Witnesses.

Jehovah's Witnesses look forward tothe day when they will rule the planet.

Here are some recent examples of REAL WORLD Jehovah's Witnesses putting into practice the beliefs and practices of the WATCHTOWER CULT.

Interested Readers can google the name "GRETA HAWKINS" -- to read June 2012 newspaper articles about a Jehovah's Witness public elementary school Principal who just recently refused to allow her students to sing Lee Greenwood's "GOD BLESS THE USA" at a recent graduation ceremony. Hawkins has also attempted to do away with her school's custom of daily reciting the Pledge of Allegiance and singing "AMERICA THE BEAUTIFUL".

INTERESTINGLY, since Greta Hawkins could NOT use her Watchtower Cult beliefs as a PUBLIC EXCUSE for her decision, Hawkins CLAIMED that Lee Greenwood's song "GOD BLESS THE USA" was OFFENSIVE TO IMMIGRANTS. Hawkins is CORRECT -- EXCEPT that "GOD BLESS THE USA" is only OFFENSIVE to IMMIGRANTS WHO ARE JEHOVAH'S WITNESSES.

Interested Readers also can google the name "LEROY McKELVEY" -- to read newspaper articles about a "devout Jehovah's Witness" who got into an argument with multiple attendees and ended up tasing a U.S. MARINE and others at a September 2011 Jets-Cowboys football game attended by past President George W. Bush and other public officials present to honor the 10th anniversary of 9/11.

Interested Readers should google the phrase "JW Manager entered the apartment without permission and took down the Flag" to read about a Jehovah's Witness apartment building Manager who refused to allow tenants to display the American Flag after 9-11.

To read about all of the above on one single webpage, Google the names "Armando Perez", "Tyler Templeton", and "Bruce Cooke" -- ALL IN THE SAME SEARCH -- to read about a dozen or so similar incidents involving Jehovah's Witnesses.

Religion and freedom of conscience are the same thing. You can't tell others what to think and still advocate freedom. There are however a few violent religions, as well as the Marxist revolutionaries, that have caused problems. It usually begins with rhetoric against 'religion'.

Some worship a tree; as long as they are non violent they are free to be wrong. But when they are violent there should be restrictions placed. Some banned in the past..

Roman Catholicism - recent ongoing violence.

Islam - recent ongoing violence.

Freemasonry - recent ongoing violence. Conspiracy.

Marxism - Same as Masonry.
