      There are two different documentaries contained here. HUNTED BY ANGELS was made in 2007 when I was going through some extraordinary experiences with a "Secret Society" that could manipulate government agencies like the FBI, the CIA and local police. I suspected I was being punished by these people for a documentary I made in 2005-2006 for the BBC called TWO FACES OF EDEN. This documentary never made it to the public because it was sabotaged, tapes stolen, deleted from hard drive, etc. In part, it discusses CAFTA - which is the "New World Order" agenda (I didn't know this at the time, but you don't mess with their agenda or they will attack your life and work). I also didn't know how powerful and experienced the NWO people are at keeping the real news out of the view of the large public media outlets like the BBC (the NWO does not seem to tolerate any criticism of their agenda... hence, the death threats and direct attack on my life and work). This copy of TWO FACES OF EDEN (made for the BBC in 2005-2006) is an early edit that I found hidden away on an old hard drive... so it's not polished at all. All updated copies of this documentary were deleted from the hard drive and/or stolen / destroyed. I found this copy on an old hard drive and I was so happy to find it 5 years after I thought all traces of this project had been destroyed or stolen. Many of the cuts are rough. But it's got some good moments. I also have a book that I've written at http://www.spiessuck.com which talks in more detail about spies and Secret Societies in modern day North America.

                    Harvest Time; Wise and Foolish Sons on Warn Radio Show ID#wf-060512-harvest-time Don’t Sleep in Harvest Time, as all who sow seed and harvest crops know too well. Harvest Time is very busy with the bringing in of the crops. Today we discuss this Harvest Time in the Earth along with the Wise and Foolish Sons. Harvest Time comes but someone who was too lazy to sow seed into the field, to water the seed sown, will be too lazy to go out into the field and harvest the crops. No these lazy ones would have you plant seed, sow seed, water that seed, and have you also harvest the crop by the sweat of your brow; so they could come and avail themselves of your labor and the harvest you have…The Watchman Dana Smith Harvest Time in the earth is here. When the Son of Man, the Son of God, the Son of David was on this earth, he spoke of the Harvest Time. There is a field, a seed to sow, a crop that needs watered, and a God who will add the increase. Harvest Time is here in the end times and Prophecy confirms that God will have a Harvest from the Harvest Time in the Earth. The world sits in its relegated authority and tries to act as God, even denying his power or existence at times. They deny his Son Yeshua Ha Massiach, Jesus Christ; but all Harvest Times centers on those who he died for. God our Father will have two Harvests. One Harvest Time, but two Harvests. There is one Harvest for the righteous and one Harvest for the wicked. Jesus came and died on this earth so man would not face a wicked Harvest, but through his death, burial, and resurrection and the shedding of his blood; man can find this redemption and Son ship. Harvest Time in the earth is here and the Wise and Foolish Sons are set to receive their rewards. Which one are you? He becometh poor that dealeth with a slack hand: but the hand of the diligent maketh rich. Pro 10:4 He that gathereth in summer is a wise son: but he that sleepeth in harvest is a son that causeth shame. Pro 10:5 Blessings are upon the head of the just: but violence covereth the mouth of the wicked.

Home Sweet Home For those who have already seen Yann Arthus-Bertrand’s ‘Home’ [2009], here is a chance to enjoy its ingenious and breathtaking photography without the narration nor the live sound, but complemented solely by the captivating score by Armand Amar, a scintillating collaboration of some of the greatest musicians from around the world. This is the 118-minute long, extended edition of the film, and as a result, we had to use additional music from other albums by Amar [see below for details]. If you haven’t seen ‘Home’ yet, you should, not just because it is a timely reminder to save our beautiful planet from the effects of climate change, but also because it is a stunning achievement in the history of cinema.
