GRIFFIN DELETED FROM WIKIPEDIA
My biographical listing in Wikipedia was deleted last week after being on line for about five years. The reason is that Wikipedia’s high-level editors claim I am a conspiracy theorist and a promoter of quack cancer cures. Apparently they do not agree with my view that there are hidden agendas in banking and government and they do not favor my defense of natural health without drugs. It is strange that they have no problem listing Hitler, Stalin, Mao Tse Dong, Al Capone, or even John D. Rockefeller’s fat
her William Avery Rockefeller who, according to Wikipedia: “was a quack doctor and a confidence trickster.” Nevertheless, the editors of Wikipedia find me to be so offensive that I had to be removed from the Internet lest my ideas contaminate the public mind. There probably is nothing that can be done about this, but if anyone has any suggestions, I would like to hear them – especially if any attorneys think that legal action might be appropriate. It’s not that I am so important, but there is a principle here that needs to be defended. It has something to do with the First Amendment of the Constitution.

LISTEN TO FORMER PENTAGON EXPERT ON DEPLETED URANIUM EXPLAIN WHY SO MANY YOUNG VETERANS ARE DYING OF ILLNESS
Dr. Doug Rokke is a career army officer who was the Pentagon's most senior DU expert during the first Gulf War. Appearing as a guest on our Reality Zone conference call, he described the illness and death inflicted on civilians, combatants, and even his own men who were assigned to clean up the mess, a task that was never completed. He tells how he was ordered to conceal this truth from the world and he confirms that Iraq did have biological weapons as early as 1990, but they came from the U.S. Army ostensibly to be used against Iran and the Kurds. The destruction of these stockpiles during the U.S. invasion in 2003 caused a deadly spill into the environment that harmed Iraqis and American troops alike. This incredibly important testimony was recorded and now may be heard on the Freedom Force web site here.

READERS' COMMENTS


MOTHER OF BI-POLAR CHILD DISAGREES WITH MIKE ADAMS

Dear Ed,
I have loved your "Unfiltered News" for many years now, and look forward to reading it each week. I seldom disagree with what you include, but today's article "4000% increase in diagnosis of Bi-Polar Disorder in children in last 10 years. This indicates, not increase in illness, but of false diagnosis to push drug treatment. Natural News 2008 Feb 19 (Cached)" made me want to share my thoughts.

I have a child with Bi-Polar Disorder and it took years (9 years to be exact,) to get a correct diagnosis. The reason is that the DSM IV, the Psychiatrists bible for diagnosing disorders, does not include a diagnosis for Bi-Polar in children. The ultra rapid cycling and different symptoms displayed in children is not in the adult diagnosis.

The title and content of this article is MISLEADING, stating that the increase in diagnosis in children is due to false diagnosis to push drug treatment. I strongly disagree! I believe that the increase in diagnosis is due to the fact that there was NO accurate diagnosis for Bi-Polar Disorder in children prior to 1993 and so now many Psychiatrists are diagnosing without the DSM IV, based on actual current research.

The author, Mike Adams, states that "Among the conditions in children that may easily be misdiagnosed as bipolar disorder are attention deficit hyperactivity disorder...." Well, our Dr. tested ADHD medications on my son and it made him much worse. Then he states "These children need better nutrition, not more drugs," All I have to say here is that I think Mike needs to attempt to parent a Bi-Polar child, before he makes such rash and uninformed comments. He then states "Furthermore, most of the drugs being used to treat these children have never been tested on children nor approved for use on children by the FDA." If he thinks that the FDA is a good organization that is to be trusted, then he has certainly not been reading his "Unfiltered News."

In my family, we are nutritionally healthy, eat only organic meats and dairy, eat no artificial colors, and take no other drugs, no cold medicines... only vitamins and fish oil. I am against most drugs and medications and stand right beside you in the fight against the AIDS/HIV drug therapy's and cancer treatments... But - The drug that has saved my sons life, and mine too as a parent, is Lamictal. It was originally created for other symptoms and disorders..., but is today saving the lives of many Bi-Polar children and adults alike. I do believe doctors push many drugs and surgeries unnecessarily, but to state that the increase in diagnosis of Bi-Polar in children is due to false diagnosis to push drug treatments, - that is just ignorant.

Thanks for hearing me out,
Your friend and subscriber forever,

WE NEED TO TAKE THE RON PAUL MOVEMENT TO A HIGHER LEVEL
It's been an inspiring experience working within the grassroots Ron Paul movement. Now that it's reasonable to conclude that we will not win the nomination, I've been thinking a lot about how to help keep the movement together, where the movement goes next, and how that could fit in with the goals of Freedom Force. Obviously this strategy exercise would've been necessary even had we won the Republican nomination, as we know that the fight is just beginning either way.

Already, just a week past Super Tuesday, I've felt a big slump in morale within the movement, affirming what was already obvious: that most members have little understanding of the true scope and depth of the mission, and most have yet to identify the true enemy of liberty, collectivism. But if we can somehow keep the local and regional groups together and involved, the learning process will continue and more members will learn what really needs to be done to rescue liberty and the Constitution.

In Ron Paul's recent video he suggested a mass rally in D.C. to demonstrate the power of the movement. I see little benefit to this plan, and think it indicates a lack of clear direction within his organization.


What is needed is a cohesive strategy to keep the Ron Paul grassroots organized and involved, to shape it into a powerful force for positive change in society. The official campaign actually hindered efforts to recruit and support local candidates, and many of the grassroots leaders also agreed that supporting local candidates would take away from support for Ron Paul. This demonstrated to me that there isn't a larger vision in place along the lines of the Freedom Force idea, and to date I see no sign of such a vision. I see no evidence that the Libertarian Party leadership that's been in charge of the campaign will provide this in the future, either. Ron Paul is in a position, and I think is willing, to be the leader of a larger movement, but I think he needs help with the vision and the plan.

Instead of a Ron Paul rally in DC, I would suggest using the clear strength of the Revolution, the internet, and hold the first national virtual rally. Local grassroots groups across the country could gather with big-screen TVs and party & cheer just as if in DC, and it would be accessible to every member of the Revolution. There could be speeches & music, and the highlight, and main purpose, would be to unveil the master plan by Ron Paul himself...; the plan that will take back our government town by town, county by county, state by state.

This is a rough idea, and I'm simply offering it to see if it flies. If you think it's worth pursuing, or have other insights, please let me know your thoughts.
Sincerely,
David Lamb (2008 Feb 13)

Hello David.
I agree with all that you say except that I can see some possible benefit from from a DC March because it could build morale and clearly demonstrate the massive numbers of supporters for the Constitutional message. That would be one count that the crooked voting machines could not hide. The result possibly could have an impact on un-marginalizing the movement in the minds of average citizens. In the long run, we will need their support. Let's see what others think. Thanks for your thoughts.

THE RON PAUL MARCH ON WASHINGTON
(This is a revision of a posting made last week in which the writer's comments were unintentionally blended with comments from others without making it clear which was which. We apologize for the confusion and hope that restoring the entire letter will make it clear.)

This march should be, in essence, The March For Freedom, Liberty, and the Constitution, Led By Ron Paul, as opposed to The March For Ron Paul. The following was posted on Daily Paul this afternoon. It was met with exactly the sort of passionate division that you would expect, and it illustrates why I feel the way that I do:

"
How are we going to get the message out to the 9/11 Truthers (who mistakenly believe that Paul agrees that 9/11 was inside job), not to carry "9/11 WAS AN INSIDE JOB" signs at the March? If they carry signs like this, this will be shown on the news and it's what the public will focus us on if this happens. The public will generalize that we all believe that and are lunatics. This could be a nightmare for the Paul campaign. ... This is not a free speech issue. I'm aware that they have a RIGHT to carry such signs. I'm talking about PURSUADING them not to carry the signs, for the best interest of the campaign."

It is an unavoidable reality that there will be individuals who show up at this march and express controversial points of view. Even if you were able to get every single Ron Paul supporter to agree on which views should and should not be expressed (which will never happen), there will be people who show up who are not even supporters of Ron Paul. Some will even be our enemies seeking to undermine and divide us.

If it is The March For Ron Paul, there will inevitably be some Ron Paul supporters who will try to silence those who express views that they find too controversial (with the good intentions of "protecting" Ron Paul and his campaign). There will division amongst the marchers and a widespread collectivist mentality that is contrary to what Ron Paul stands for.

If it is The March For Freedom, Liberty and The Constitution, Led By Ron Paul, we will not be prone to such division and collectivism. We won't encourage this collectivist mindset where everyone argues about what hurts Ron Paul and what doesn't and who needs to be censored by the majority. Though most of the people there will be loudly supporting Ron Paul (as they should), there will not be a need for one group of people to try to silence another. There won't be a discussion about whether or not "we" should "let" people exercise their first amendment rights. Instead, we can all embrace the fact that people are exercising their God-given right to speak freely, which is a big part of what we are fighting to preserve by marching in the first place.

Sincerely,
Adam F, Pittsburgh, PA (2008 Feb 12)

DECEPTION WAS MY JOB
The Testimony of Yuri Bezmenov,
KGB Propagandist.
Deception Was My JobYuri Bezmenov, the son of a high-ranking Soviet officer, worked for the propaganda arm of the KGB, known as the Novasti Press Agency. One of his assignments was to accompany journalists visiting the Soviet Union to make sure they did not discover the truth about Soviet life. After becoming disillusioned with the oppressive system, he escaped to the West at great risk to his life. In this interview, conducted by G. Edward Griffin, Bezmenov tells how the Soviets propagandized their own citizens; how he hoodwinked American journalists into publishing Soviet propaganda, how slave laborers are concealed from foreign visitors, and how he escaped to the West posing as an American hippie. Includes many photographs brought with him on microfilm at the time of his escape. (More)

DEBUNKING 9/11 DEBUNKING
An Answer to Popular Mechanics and Other Defenders of the Official
Conspiracy Theory. Debunking 9/11 DebunkingAlmost half of the American people now believe that 9/11 was a false-flag operation,  engineered by the government to look like the work of an enemy it planned to attack anyway for other reasons. In the beginning, such a view was unthinkable; but, as evidence has surfaced that contradicts the official version, public opinion has turned. That triggered a spate of reports and books claiming to debunk the evidence. Here is the book that debunks the debunkers. It shows how they misrepresented data and ignored facts they cannot dispute. This book blows away the government’s 9/11 conspiracy theory.

WRITTEN BY BY RON PAUL!
If you are looking for a great way to introduce Presidential candidate, Ron Paul, to your friends, this is it:
A FOREIGN POLICY OF FREEDOM
A Foreign Policy of Freedom by Hon. Ron Paul
by Hon. Ron Paul.
Here are 93 entries from Ron Paul’s personal journal including hard hitting position statements delivered to Congress from 1976 to the present in which he challenges the foreign- policy errors of both major political parties. Every problem now menacing the survival of the United States is predicted in these pages as the inevitable consequence of abandoning the principles of the Founding Fathers and the Constitution. If we are to end terrorism and war, if we are to restore liberty and sovereignty, we must reject the bi-partisan insanity of the past 50 years and rally behind these traditional doctrines. (More)
