Thou Fool

Thou Fool 


Luke 12:16 And he spake a parable unto them, saying, The ground of a certain rich man brought forth plentifully: 17 And he thought within himself, saying, What shall I do, because I have no room where to bestow my fruits? 18 And he said, This will I do: I will pull down my barns, and build greater; and there will I bestow all my fruits and my goods. 19 And I will say to my soul, Soul, thou hast much goods laid up for many years; take thine ease, eat, drink, [and] be merry. 20 But God said unto him, [Thou] fool, this night thy soul shall be required of thee: then whose shall those things be, which thou hast provided?

A lot of fools are showing their true colors during this man created scamdemic. Their greed and avarice is running rampant. They think they will get rich and live forever.

But their days are numbered. 

Your days are numbered.

All of these greedy rats running around thinking they are so cunning. They never suspect that there are greedier rats than themselves running an even bigger scam. 

They never entertain the thought that they too can be someone's victim. 

There is always a bigger fish and in this world there is always a bigger rat. The biggest rats of all have put out the rat poison and the little rats can't get enough of it.

1Ti 6:10  For the love of money is the root of all evil: which while some coveted after, they have erred from the faith, and pierced themselves through with many sorrows.
Yes indeed, many have pierced themselves through.

And this is just the beginning of sorrows

Mr 8:36  For what shall it profit a man, if he shall gain the whole world, and lose his own soul?

How do you wake up the dollar zombies? 

How do you raise the dead who are walking around with their faces glued to their smartphones? 

How do you bring life to the churches that are only morgues full of corpses?

They are all so desperate to hold on to this world that is passing away. It's a fool's errand. They'll meet a fool's end. 


No Religious Exemptions For 666

This is only a test. In the event of the real Apocalypse there will be no religious exemptions for the mark of the beast. 

let's go brandin'
Before the globalists do anything they model it out first. They model it and they run simulations and live drills. This is why they need massive data centers to collect and analyze all of those petabytes of data. They adjust their plans according to what they learn.

They need to do this because they are not God. They just aspire to be.

It doesn’t matter whether it’s six minutes, six days or six weeks. We’re gonna get it done. - Joe Biden speaking of passing the 3.5 trillion dollar infrastructure bill.

They placed vaccine mandate penalties within an amendment of section 666 of Title 29 of the US Code. 

Revelation 13:16 And he causeth all, both small and great, rich and poor, free and bond, to receive a mark in their right hand, or in their foreheads: 17 And that no man might buy or sell, save he that had the mark, or the name of the beast, or the number of his name. 18 Here is wisdom. Let him that hath understanding count the number of the beast: for it is the number of a man; and his number [is] Six hundred threescore [and] six.

Before the globalists implement a program they will run virtual simulations. These are followed by real world tests in series of increasing scale culminating in full scale live simulations.

Event 201, which was really Event 21, was the virtual simulation:

What a coincidence that they would have this massive coronavirus pandemic simulation and then we have the real thing. You believe that?

As Mr. Pompeo states below, we are in the live exercise phase:

Yes, he will deny that he meant what we imply here. 

Plausible deniability is one of their most prized assets together with the gullibility of the public to be assuaged by it.

The worker bees (i.e. Gates, Trump, Biden, Fauci etc.) do not even need to know the plan. They do the will of their masters based upon their innate greed and lust for power.

Is money YOUR god? Don't lie.

There are many other reasons why people go along with these things, such as black mail, ignorance and simple blind worship of science and other institutions of man.

COVID19 and vaccine mandates are the perfect global scale modeling environment for the implementation of the mark of the beast.

Do not misconstrue what is being stated here. We are not saying that COVID19 is not real. It is very real and many people are dying. But the real virus was made by the globalists and is just another prop in this simulation working fear in the population.

As the simulation creeps toward the mark of the beast one aspect is lacking:


Integral to the mark of the beast is worship of a man.

However, one can see clear cut characteristics of a cult in the way the vaccine industrial complex propagandizes and proselytizes. 

Those who have been permanently injured still proclaim the virtues of their decision to receive the experimental jab. One would have to be blind not to see in this the blind faith of a religious zealot. 

Large numbers of jab victims continue to get sick and die despite being "protected", yet the blind worship continues.

Look at Singapore. Almost 90% of the population is fully vaccinated, yet look where the cases went vertical. Singapore's case rate is roughly 350% of what it was at its highest point prior to anyone being vaccinated there. Just look at the chart at that link. It is astonishing. 

The pandemic was essentially over for Singapore when they started administering shots in December 2020. At that time there were almost no cases at all. By late August2021, with almost 90% of the population fully vaccinated, cases began a steep vertical ascent that has yet to abate. Yet we are to believe that this is the fault of the unvaccinated? 

The global mind is being conditioned to worship whatever image the powers that be present as god, whether it be a vaccine (as it is now being presented within the simulation), or a man who is to come. 

Depopulation and population control as motives for the vaccines are disinformation. Many have died and many have been injured, but these are collateral to the agenda. 

The globalists understand that they must crack a few eggs to get to the end game.

Most people are intended to survive in order to be presented for this end game.

The restrictions and mandates are modes of psychological conditioning. They are being used to create an "us versus them" dynamic. People are being trained to obey and to hate and distrust those who do not obey.

Mt 10:22  And ye shall be hated of all men for my name’s sake: but he that endureth to the end shall be saved.

We are in the midst of global Stanford Prison Experiment. 

This is a trial run for the implementation of the mark and you have just become fully accountable for how you respond from here on out. 

Re 13:8  And all that dwell upon the earth shall worship him, whose names are not written in the book of life of the Lamb slain from the foundation of the world.

2Peter 3:3 Knowing this first, that there shall come in the last days scoffers, walking after their own lusts, 4 And saying, Where is the promise of his coming? for since the fathers fell asleep, all things continue as [they were] from the beginning of the creation.

Are you one of the scoffers? 

Understand this, that where this goes is in the hands of God. Satan has been trying since before Babel to implement his world religion with his antichrist at its helm. Satan never stops trying to bring it to pass. But it is God who has final say, as to whether now is the time to fulfill every last word of his Revelation.

No matter what comes or when it is easy to escape all of these things. It is only necessary to humble oneself and believe:

For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth on him should not perish, but have eternal life.

How Reliable Is The PCR Test

How Reliable Is The PCR Test


CDC is mandating a Ct of 28 and below for the vaccinated and 40 for everyone else (Yale study page 6 shows CDC lab 40 Ct). Does that sound like an honest organization to you? 

I am not going to come out and say that someone at CDC has a financial or other interest in Moderna or Pfizer. 

It's not like it never happened before:

In 2016 a group of more than a dozen senior scientists at the CDC lodged an ethics complaint alleging that that the CDC was being influenced "by corporate and political interests in ways that shortchange taxpayers." They noted "the pervasive nature of unethical practices throughout all levels at the CDC."

What does it mean? It means there are far more "breakthrough" cases than they will ever admit. Maybe even to the point that "efficacy" is null for all practical purposes.

The Plot

The PCR test is being used globally in diagnosing SARS-CoV-2.

But According to Kary Mullis (deceased), inventor of the test, there are problems with using PCR as a diagnostic tool:

In 2020 a landmark court case in Portugal ruled that four German tourists had been illegally detained due to having been declared COVID positive based upon the results of PCR testing:

In view of the current scientific evidence, this test is, in itself, unable to determine, beyond reasonable doubt, that such positivity corresponds, in fact, to the infection of a person by the SARS-CoV-2 virus...

The study referenced by the judges in the above case (and others like it) have been misinterpreted by many on social media:

Since the beginning of the epidemic,we have performed in our institute 250,566 SARS-CoV-2RT-PCR  for 179,151 patients, of which 13,161(7.3%) tested positive. Up to the end  of  May, 3790 of these samples reported  positives on naso-pharyngeal samples were inoculated and  managed for culture as previously described [8]. Of these 3790 inoculated samples, 1941 SARS-Cov-2 isolates  could be obtained after the first  inoculation  or up to blind subcultures. The correlation between the scanner values and the positivity of the culture allows us to observe that the image obtained with ten times more isolates than our preliminary work (1941 versus 129) does not change significantly (Figure 1).  It can be observed that at Ct=25, up to 70% of patients remain positive in culture and that at Ct=30 this value drops to  20%. At Ct=35, the value we used to report positive result for PCR, less than 3% of culture are negative.

This study is NOT stating that 97% of cases are false positive. These cases all have the coronavirus. It is a matter of whether they can be considered clinically infectious.

However, as the Ct increases a positive result does become more likely and in the video above Kary Mullis does state that (paraphrase) [you are likely to find just about any molecule just about anywhere if you amplify the sample enough times]. 

So what is an appropriate Ct value? 

In January 2021, when the Philippines was concerned about inbound passengers that might be infected with the UK COVID-19 variant (B.1.1.7) the DOH was using a Ct cutoff of 29:

Actually, what we were doing before was random. But of late, we checked all those who tested positive for COVID-19, those who have less than 30 CT value, they sent their specimen for sequencing. That's why we were able to find out the UK COVID-19 variant in a passenger from Dubai.

The Indian Council of Medical Research recommends a Ct cutoff of 35 in determining who is "COVID-19 positive":

All patients with a CT value of equal to or less than 35 may be considered positive, while those with a CT value greater than 35 may be considered negative. All samples with a CT value equal to or less than 35, which is seen as a poor sigmoidal curve, should be essentially retested. Implementing a CT value cut-off of 24 is not at all advisable as this would lead to missing of several infectious patients and increase disease transmission...

Health authorities should have a very good explanation for whatever Ct value they are using, especially if they are using a Ct above 35, considering this has a potentially great impact on the persons being tested. 

Dr Bernard La Scola, infectious disease scientist at IHU Mediterranee Infection-Aix Marseille University in France stated that pursuing cases with a Ct above 35 “is a waste of time to consider these rare cases.” 

The bottom line on using the PCR test as a diagnostic tool:

The RT-PCR test also appears to have its problems. Its inventor, Kary Mullis, who received the Nobel Prize for inventing the PCR manufacturing technique, is reported to have said that it was for research purposes only and not for medical diagnosis. An 80% false positive rate was reported from China in March 2020 (4).

The opinion of Dr. Mullis on the United States COVID-19 Task Force leader, Anthony Fauci, sheds some light on the handling of the pandemic in general:

Guys like Fauci get up there and start talking, you know, he doesn’t know anything really about anything and I’d say that to his face. Nothing. The man thinks you can take a blood sample and stick it in an electron microscope and if it’s got a virus in there you’ll know it. He doesn’t understand electron microscopy and he doesn’t understand medicine and he should not be in a position like he’s in. Most of those guys up there on the top are just total administrative people and they don’t know anything about what’s going on in the body. You know, those guys have got an agenda, which is not what we would like them to have being that we pay for them to take care of our health in some way. They’ve got a personal kind of agenda. They make up their own rules as they go. They change them when they want to. And they smugly, like Tony Fauci does not mind going on television in front of the people who pay his salary and lie directly into the camera...

"They’ve got a personal kind of agenda" 

And from Principia Scientific, WHO admits high Ct produces false positives:

In August of last year, The New York Times published an article stating that as many as 90% of COVID-19 tests in three states were not indicative of active illness (archive). In other words, they were picking up viral debris incapable of causing infection or being transmitted because the cycle threshold (Ct) of the PCR testing amplified the sample too many times.
Labs in the United States were using a Ct of 37-40. Epidemiologists interviewed at the time said a Ct of around 30 was probably more appropriate. This means the CDC’s COVID-19 test standards for the PCR test would pick up an excessive number of false positives. The Times report noted the CDC’s own data suggested the PCR did not detect live virus over a Ct of 33. The reporter also noted that clinicians were not receiving the Ct value as part of the test results.
Yet a PCR test instruction document from the CDC that had been revised five times as of July 13, 2020, specified testing and interpretation of the test using a Ct of 40. On September 28, 2020, a study published in the journal Clinical Infectious Diseases from Jaafar et al. had asserted, based on patient labs and clinical data involving nearly 4,000 patients, that a Ct of 30 was appropriate for making public policy. An update to the CDC instructions for PCR testing from December 1, 2020, still uses a Ct of 40.

From the NYT article referenced above:

In Massachusetts, from 85 to 90 percent of people who tested positive in July with a cycle threshold of 40 would have been deemed negative if the threshold were 30 cycles, Dr. Mina said. “I would say that none of those people should be contact-traced, not one,” he said.

Note: I see a lot of criminal conspirators on the Internet calling Principia Scientific "fringe", but the excerpt above references the NYT and peer reviewed research. 

In Closing

PCR testing does not detect virus. It detects molecules that might be associated with a viral infection, such as might be caused by SARS-CoV-2. 

From the CDC:

NAATs [nucleic acid amplification tests - like the RT-PCR] detect one or more viral ribonucleic acid (RNA) genes and indicate a current infection or a recent infection but, due to prolonged viral RNA detection, are not always direct evidence for the presence of virus capable of replicating or of being transmitted to others.

When a person tests positive for SARS-COV-2, the lower  the Ct is the higher the probability that they have an ongoing infection. The higher the Ct for a positive result the lower the probability is for an ongoing infection.

Health authorities must select a Ct value that maximizes the ability to detect those who are likely infected with COVID-19, while avoiding the agenda of selecting a higher value in order to guarantee higher rates of positive cases.

The timing of the test is also important. Ct may be high at the early onset of infection and missing this key piece of data can lead to spread of the virus.

So, how reliable is the PCR test? 

PCR test reliability is highly dependent upon who is doing the testing and the methods and practices they are using.

The PCR test can be used by those who seek to give the color of legitimacy and process to the commission of a fraud. 

But the test is not the problem in such cases. 

The problem is unscrupulous people who have an agenda and will use whatever tools are available to perpetrate it and cover it up.

You can take people who are sick with flu, pneumonia, black plague or whatever and run a PCR test on them with a jacked up Ct and call them COVID positive.

People who have died in car accidents etc are having PCRs run on them and the families never get the body because it is cremated due to being deemed COVID positive. 

In some cases no test at all is done. People are ruled COVID positive on observation alone. This is a travesty, as observable symptoms of COVID can be attributed to any number of ailments. To take away a person's liberty based on this flimsy evidence is a crime.

Such things are being done in the world. People need to educate themselves en masse so that they cannot be railroaded by such practices.

Tom Felton Collapses WHY?

The actor who played Draco Malfoy in the Harry Potter films collapsed at the Ryder Cup

It's all over the news, but none of the outlets are mentioning this from four months ago:

I am not saying there is a causal link, but this happens A LOT. So should we not be allowed to talk about the possibility of causality? 

Shouldn't the vaunted science be asking the question? 

The fact that we are not allowed to ask such questions should be a huge red flag.

And it is.

If The Bible Is True

When the context changes to Revelation 13 and you are still in a Romans 13 mindset how do you think that works out for you? This is why Scofield liars sold you the rapture, so you would never think about it.

If the things that the Bible asserts are true, especially in Genesis, then all science must be tightly controlled to keep the truth hidden.

If all science is controlled, then all industry must be controlled.

If all science and industry is controlled, then all governments and military the world over must be controlled and under a global authority.

If the Bible is true then everything, all history, all science and most of what calls itself religion MUST BE A LIE. Not that all of it is objectively untrue, but rather falsus in unum, falsus in omnibus. It does not matter what truth the powers that be tell.

They are liars about those things that matter most. All of their words are null and void. Any truth they tell is told for the strategic purpose of leading the world into the greatest lie all in service to their master, the father of lies.

If the Bible is true then there is no way that we have not been subject to this massive global conspiracy for at least the last several thousand years.

1John 5:19 We know that we are from God, and that the whole world is under the control of the evil one. (GWV)

Covid more than anything else reveals the global scope of the conspiracy. Covid is like a stroke of lightning that reveals the ONE WORLD GOVERNMENT cockroaches running around.

la cucaracha grande with newly installed 5G antennae

It also reveals just how asleep most people are.

The Powers That Be will drop fire on entire cities and nations to keep the truth hidden. 

There was a Great Flood. It killed billions of people. 

Noah...the least popular preacher in all history. 

What does that tell you about Osteen, Copeland, Warren and the rest of the Scofielders?

The myth is not the flood. The myth is that the government wants us to take its vaccine to preserve our health. The only truth in the story is that they made the virus they say they want to protect us from.

But we all know that only the most ignorant and uneducated among us refuse to take these "vaccines," right? 

Wrong. According to Carnegie Mellon University it is Americans with PhDs who are least likely to fall for it.

The PhDs along with the people with the most street smarts to smell a scam.

But it is not education that makes one intelligent or wise.  

It is the FEAR of God that is the mere beginning of wisdom. 

And it's coming. Fear is coming.

Lu 17:26  And as it came to pass in the days of Noah, even so shall it be also in the days of the Son of man. 27  They did eat, they drank, they married wives, they were given in marriage, until the day that Noe entered into the ark, and the flood came, and destroyed them all.

So, what will be your refuge?  




He Sitteth In The Temple

He Sitteth In The Temple

2Thess. 2:3 Let no man deceive you by any means: for [that day shall not come], except there come a falling away first, and that man of sin be revealed, the son of perdition; 4 Who opposeth and exalteth himself above all that is called God, or that is worshipped; so that he as God sitteth in the temple of God, shewing himself that he is God.

The Apostle Paul wrote the passage above and like all of his letters it was written in Koine (common Greek). 

A lot has been written by a great many theologians regarding the meaning of the second chapter of II Thessalonians.

Paul used the word "temple" in only eight verses throughout all of his New Testament letters:

  • 1Co 3:16  Know ye not that ye are the temple of God, and [that] the Spirit of God dwelleth in you?
  • 1Co 3:17  If any man defile the temple of God, him shall God destroy; for the temple of God is holy, which [temple] ye are.
  • 1Co 6:19  What? know ye not that your body is the temple of the Holy Ghost [which is] in you, which ye have of God, and ye are not your own?
  • 1Co 8:10  For if any man see thee which hast knowledge sit at meat in the idol’s temple, shall not the conscience of him which is weak be emboldened to eat those things which are offered to idols;
  • 1Co 9:13  Do ye not know that they which minister about holy things live [of the things] of the temple? and they which wait at the altar are partakers with the altar?
  • 2Co 6:16  And what agreement hath the temple of God with idols? for ye are the temple of the living God; as God hath said, I will dwell in them, and walk in [them]; and I will be their God, and they shall be my people.
  • Eph 2:21  In whom all the building fitly framed together groweth unto an holy temple in the Lord:
  • 2Th 2:4  Who opposeth and exalteth himself above all that is called God, or that is worshipped; so that he as God sitteth in the temple of God, shewing himself that he is God. 

In the case of 1Co 8:10 Paul uses the word εἰδωλεῖον (eidoleion i-do-li’-on) for temple to refer to an idolatrous physical temple.

In the case of 1Co 9:13 Paul uses the word ἱερόν (hieron hee-er-on) as a generic reference to a physical temple.

In every other case two facts prevail. First, the word ναός (naos nah-os’) is used and second, in each of these cases where ναός is used it is always to refer metaphorically to the human body as being the temple of God.

2 Thess. 2:4 is one of these cases. 

This is the same man with the same mind using the same word - ναός - to refer metaphorically to the human body as the temple of God five times explicitly by context and we have no reason to believe that the 6th case shown in 2Thess. 2:4 represents a change to this pattern.

This man of sin does not enter a physical "third temple" and proclaim himself to be God.

Satan enters a man whose body is the temple of God.

Anyone who teaches contrary to this is ignorant of scripture, for there is no physical building that is the "temple of God":

Ac 7:48  Howbeit the most High dwelleth not in temples made with hands; as saith the prophet,

Ac 17:24  God that made the world and all things therein, seeing that he is Lord of heaven and earth, dwelleth not in temples made with hands;

And certainly, Paul saw no physical building as being such.

Alternately, the "body" could be the body of the church. Technically, this is outside of the strict pattern of Paul using naos as a metaphor for the human body, but it is within a wider context of using it as a metaphor for the metaphorical body of Christ.

This interpretation does harmonize with the "falling away" apostasy of the church that this man of sin will be the leader of (and maybe already is and has been).

If this is the correct interpretation, then the first interpretation is also still correct, since this man will be indwelt by Satan and the man of sin's body is in fact "the temple of God." 

But if you are waiting for a third temple to be built in order for prophecy to be fulfilled, then you have been fooled by the Scofield gang of crooked lawyers.

Touching briefly upon the falling away, it is true that the apostasy has been happening for a very long time. It began with Judas Iscariot. But all of the apostasy up to now and that which follows is just the groundwork and the backstory to the discrete event that Paul describes as the falling away. 

The falling away and the revealing of the man of sin happen together and in close proximity. All of what calls itself Christian in total shall cast off Christ all at once and claim this man,whomever he may be, as its god.

The falling away is a punctuated event that throws a spotlight on the man of sin like nothing else historically or otherwise ever could.

It is not the long drawn out process of apostasy. 

It's the exclamation point at the end of the process.

Without the process the event would and could never happen.

It is coming. On which side of the line will you stand?

Copy That

"my concerns are that the government is not being transparent with us about what those risks are. And so, I am of the opinion that people have the right to decide whether to accept vaccines or not, especially since these are experimental vaccines" - Dr. Robert Malone (inventor of mRNA vaccine technology)

Recently, President Duterte made clear the responsibility of every person to do what they must for the sake of public health in regard to the ongoing pandemic:

"You choose, vaccine or I will have you jailed...But for as long as you are here and you are a human being, and can carry the virus, get vaccinated. Otherwise, I will order all the village captains to have a tally of the people who refuse to be vaccinated.... Because if not, I will have Ivermectin meant for pigs injected into you."

It is most interesting to note that he did not say that he would forcibly inject the vaccines into those who refuse to voluntarily submit to vaccination. 

He said he would have you injected with Ivermectin.

How odd.

Ivermectin is well known for its antiviral properties

Ivermectin has shown its potent in vitro antiviral effects against several RNA viruses, such as Zika virus, Influenza A virus, Newcastle disease virus, Chikungunya virus, Yellow fever virus, Dengue virus, Japanese encephalitis virus and DNA virus such as BK polyomavirus and Equine herpesvirus type 1 [3].

The anti-SARS-CoV-2 of ivermectin is likely through inhibition of viral IMPα/β1-mediated nuclear import, which reduces the replication of virus and thereby the viral load [4].Caly et al. showed the in vitro benefit of ivermectin in Vero-hSLAM cells infected with SARS-CoV-2.The authors found that a single dose of ivermectin was able to effect ∼5000-fold reduction in viral RNA at 48 h [4].

 And from the Healio clinical information website:

Thus far, Marik said, studies have indicated that ivermectin has demonstrated efficacy in preventing COVID-19 infection prior to and after exposure to COVID-19. He also said that it has been shown to effectively treat the virus in the early symptomatic stages and among patients hospitalized with COVID-19

For instance, Marik and colleagues noted that a randomized controlled trial in Egypt found that among health care and household contacts of COVID-19 patients, just 2% of those who received ivermectin and wore PPE tested positive for the novel coronavirus, compared with 10% of contacts who were only given PPE.  

So why is Ivermectin's efficacy being downplayed by so many? 

Perhaps this statement from the same article is why:

Paul Marik, MD, FCCM, FCCP, founder of the alliance and a professor and chief of the division of pulmonary and critical care medicine at Eastern Virginia Medical School, said that ivermectin “is a safe drug that is exceedingly cheap.”

People are getting rich from the vaccines, but no one is going to make money from the "pig medicine" Ivermectin.

Ivermectin has been used by billions of people for forty years. 

Have you ever heard stories about it causing heart attacks, strokes, painful rashes all over the body, death, etc?

Neither have I. 

We know personally of examples of all of those things, but not due to Ivermectin.

Another thing that Ivermectin does not do is attack reproductive organs.  

Long established Ivermectin v. highly suspicious compounds promoted and protected by unprecedented propaganda.

Copy that.


The pharma prostitutes are so desperate that they had to make up a fake story about Ivermectin overdoses filling up Oklahoma hospitals. Only brain damaged liberal NPCs blindly believe this grade-school level propaganda anymore. Unfortunately, there are over 200 million of those in the United States.

This article is not telling you to take Ivermectin. Ivermectin may not be indicated in all cases. No dosage information is given here either. That is for a medical professional to determine if you can find one who is not owned by the vaccine industrial complex.

Aspirin and even sugar can be deadly in the hands of an idiot. This article requires wisdom and intelligence to assimilate. If you lack those, then please disregard this article and head down to the vaccination center immediately. 

You probably cannot even find Ivermectin anymore because the doctors, nurses and pharmacists have snapped it all up. Wonder why.

Is Your Adobe Reader Crashing?

Is Your Adobe Reader Crashing?



This started happening to me a couple of years ago. I fixed it by creating a rule in Windows Firewall to block AcroRd32.exe from accessing the Internet. 

That works, but there are a lot of other rules in my firewall - so many that sometimes I have to turn it off to make things work that I want to work. 

So, I have started finding more elegant ways of stopping what I want to stop, while allowing other stuff to get through.

This is where I began looking into exactly what is going on.

Using Currports I found that AcroRd32 was trying to access a couple of different IP addresses:

Exploring this on the net reveals that Adobe most often is looking for these two FQDNs (fully qualified domain names): and

When you run each one of these through tracert or ping at the command prompt they do indeed turn up our IP addresses from above:

When I plug that first IP ( into IPNetInfo it does not return Adobe:

Instead it returns the CDN (content delivery network),, that is hosting the Adobe service. Same for the other address.

So how do we block Adobe from communicating with these addresses to stop the shutdowns?

We use the hosts file.

You need to open hosts in notepad with admin privileges. The easiest way to do that is open notepad, pin it to the taskbar, close notepad, then right click on it on the taskbar while holding down shift and then select "Run as administrator."

Then you need to open hosts from the file menu of notepad.

You can find the host file on the drive hosting your Windows installation under Windows\System32\drivers\etc

And make sure that you select "all files (*.*)" because the hosts file does not have an extension.

We want to block these Adobe domains using for IPv4 and :: for IPv6 and that looks like this in our hosts file:

Now when Adobe Reader sends a request to the system to resolve either of those two FQDNs the hosts file will block the request, which looks like this:

Adobe Reader is no longer able to reach the two IP addresses that were causing the shutdowns.
