FROM OUR READERS
VIDEO IS TRUE BUT TOO VULGAR
I so appreciate your website and insight into all that is transpiring in
these seemingly “last days”. I love G. Edward Griffin and his ability to
expound on complex and profound topics. I read both The Creature from
Jekyll Island and World Without Cancer . . . both excellent,
However, I just want to make a comment on the Brasscheck video about
Blackwater on this last Unfiltered News. Of course, the information is
shocking and unbelievable, but I know true . . . so why is it that
inevitably the producers need to be vulgar? I just don’t get it. I would
love to pass on information like this but feel hesitant because of the one
statement—I found very offensive. It’s not spoken, but written on one of the
I know this is not your content, but if it could be cut or something, it

opinion, that is.
Thank you so very much for what you do. God bless and keep you all,

I totally agree with you. Unfortunately, we are not able to alter video when

IS "INTERNET NEUTRALITY" A DECEPTIVE PHRASE? Reader
says it really means political control of the Internet to stifle competition
with Google and AT&T. Read his letter here.
SHOULD WE SUPPORT RUSSELL MEANS
AND THE LAKOTA INDIANS?
We have received several inquiries about why we have not urged the support
of Russell Means who has called for separation of the Lakota Indians from
the United States. In outline form, here is the reason. (If you are in a
hurry and don't have time for the details, I suggest you jump ahead and read
just the last two paragraphs, starting with item six.)
1. Russell Means is considered to be a founder of the American Indian
Movement; although, in later years after a split developed between him and
the organization, AIM went to considerable length to distance itself from
Means and to downplay his role.
2. AIM has, from its beginning, been closely aligned with Marxists who have
pursued the classical Leninist strategy of dividing a target nation into
splinter regions through a revolutionary strategy called War of National
Liberation. This calls for identifying a religious, ethnic, or racial group
within a target nation that can be mobilized on the basis of some grievance
against the government or the ruling class. There usually are plenty of
legitimate grievances to draw upon, but the strategy calls for making them
worse and, if possible, even to create new ones. The objective is, not
reform, but bitterness, hatred, violence, and territorial division. This
strategy has been used in one variation or another in many countries, and it
is easy to identify if you know the rules by which they play. AIM has always
played by those rules, and its Leninist orientation is clearly visible. (If
you would like more information about this strategy, please contact me at
email@example.com, and I’ll be glad to send you the transcript of a video I
produced on that topic some years ago entitled: “More Deadly Than War; The
Blueprint for Communist Revolution in America.”)
3. After being caught up in this movement in the
beginning, Means eventually rejected the Leninist influence and, after a
protracted period of disagreement with other leaders, resigned from AIM.
Actually, the organization was quick to repudiate him and, in one of its press releases,
claimed that he had resigned no less than six times, so we can well
imagine what conflict went on at the leadership level.
4. There is no doubt that much of that conflict centered around the ideology
of Communism. While his former comrades remained faithful to traditional
Marxist/Leninist strategies and slogans, Means began to speak out against them. In a speech delivered in July 1980 at the International
Survival Gathering in the Black Hills of South Dakota, Means said in no
uncertain terms that Marxism was not the solution for the grievances of his
people. The enemy, he said, was not even capitalism. It was European
culture. Here is a sampling of his remarks:
“Capitalists, at least, can be relied upon to develop uranium as fuel only
at the rate at which they can show a good profit. That's their ethic, and
maybe that will buy some time. Marxists, on the other hand, can be relied
upon to develop uranium fuel as rapidly as possible simply because it's the
most "efficient" production fuel available. That's their ethic, and I fail
to see where it's preferable. Like I said, Marxism is right smack in the
middle of the European tradition. It's the same old song. … The only manner
in which American Indian people could participate in a Marxist revolution
would be to join the industrial system, to become factory workers, or
"proletarians," as Marx called them. The man was very clear about the fact
that his revolution could occur only through the struggle of the
proletariat, that the existence of a massive industrial system is a
precondition of a successful Marxist society. … So, in order for us to
really join forces with Marxism, we American Indians would have to accept
the national sacrifice of our homeland; we would have to commit cultural
suicide and become industrialized and Europeanized. … Marxism has something
of a history. Does this history bear out my observations? I look to the
process of industrialization in the Soviet Union since 1920 and I see that …
the territory of the USSR used to contain a number of tribal peoples and
they have been crushed to make way for the factories. The Soviets refer to
this as "the National Question," the question of whether the tribal peoples
had a right to exist as people; and they decided the tribal peoples were an
acceptable sacrifice to industrial needs. I look to China and I see the same
thing. I look to Vietnam and I see Marxists imposing an industrial order and
rooting out the indigenous tribal mountain people. … I hear a leading Soviet
scientist saying that when the uranium is exhausted, then alternatives will
be found. I see the Vietnamese taking over a nuclear power plant abandoned
by the U.S. military. Have they dismantled and destroyed it? No, they are
using it. I see China exploding nuclear bombs, developing nuclear reactors,
and preparing a space program in order to colonize and exploit the planets
the same as the Europeans colonized and exploited this hemisphere. It's the
same old song, but maybe with a faster tempo this time. … I do not believe
that capitalism itself is really responsible for the situation in which
American Indians have been declared a national sacrifice. No, it is the
European tradition; European culture itself is responsible.” (See:
5. So, it’s clear why Russell Means does not get along with his former
comrades who continue to have an affinity to Marxist-style collectivism.
However, in spite of the fact that, more recently, he has supported the
Libertarian Party and the Ron Paul presidential campaign, I can find nothing in his words
or actions that reveal an clearly defined attitude
about collectivism in general. The Libertarian Party embraces people from a
wide range of ideological conviction, including collectivists who are merely
expressing disgust for the leadership of the other parties. I would hope that
Means' affinity to the heritage of his ancestors would raise him above that,
but I am mindful that the Indian tradition also contains strong elements of
collectivism. I would like to have the opportunity someday to talk with him
about this. However, until we know where he stands on the conflict between
collectivism and individualism, we cannot automatically assume that he is a
champion of freedom.
6. Adding to this need for caution is the fact that Means is calling for
secession of the Lakota Indians from the United States and has appealed to
that great collectivist assembly of totalitarianism, the UN, for moral,
legal, and possibly physical assistance. He has asked for a seat in the
General Assembly. While any freedom-seeking person with common sense would
be working to get the U.S. out of the U.N., Means is working to get out of
the U.S. and into the U.N.
This is the reason we did not jump on the Russell Means bandwagon. He may
not be a Marxist/Leninist, but he still appears to be promoting the strategy
of so-called national liberation, and he is seeking to align himself with
the U.N., arguably the worst bunch of dictators and despots the world has ever
known. I don’t
see how anything good can come out of that, certainly not for the Lakota
RESPONSE FROM JOHN SAMBDMAN:
I have read your concerns regarding a cautious support of Russell Means and
the Lakotah Indians. Initially, I was encouraged by his efforts to establish
a sovereign nation within US borders, especially since it would give me
somewhere to go if our government became too oppressive. I understand your
misgivings of his appeal to the UN, but what other avenue is available to
him if he is to essentially force the USA to give up nearly 5 states and
possibly as many as 11?
They have no means of forcing acceptance and as you say those without power
cannot defend liberty. Ideally, I would like to see them succeed without an
appeal and possible dependence on the UN. Have you approached Russell means
and how would you suggest he proceed?
There are several other states entertaining secession, perhaps we could
forge our own International body of liberty minded nations and states akin
to the UN but instead working to promote individual liberty and standing in
the way of governmental oppression of individual rights. I have been
suggesting to those around me to start our own nation and attract liberty
minded individuals to move there akin to Ayn Rand’s “Atlas Shrugged”. I
believe an environment where one can live unmolested by government and free
to innovate would lead to real world solutions to our energy crisis among
other problems. Unrestricted Hemp production comes to mind. (No I am not a
pothead, I have never taken marijuana or any other recreational drug). I
look forward to your thoughts on these topics. I have enjoyed your books and
Freedom Force International is a breath of fresh air in what is quickly
becoming an oppressive environment.
REPLY FROM GEG:
I believe that, at the present time, the only possibility of success is to
create a freedom movement among the Lakotah Indians dedicated to the
recapture of their state and local governments through Constitutional means.
That, of course, is the mission of Freedom Force. I see no reason to
consider a solution for Indians different than the solution for the rest of
us. We are all Americans now and must work to build a united effort, not one
that will divide us further. I have not had an opportunity to talk to
Russell Means about this but would welcome the opportunity.
The idea of a new nation is appealing, but I have no idea where it would be.
It would not be within the current United States without a second Civil War
– which is not a very good idea. Thanks for your interest in this topic.
IT'S ALL FOR MY SECURITY
A satirical poem © June 16, 2008 by G. Edward Griffin
I woke up Sunday morning
(Father’s Day) with a silly limerick running through my head. It was a
satirical comment on how Boobus Amricanus is so willing to give
up liberty in return for the false hope of security against terrorism. I couldn’t get it out of my head
dinner, I began to play with the words and eventually produced a first
draft. Because satire
often communicates an idea more forcefully than dull documentation and
logical argument, I am publishing it to see if it has any such utility. I hope you will find it useful with your friends who don’t yet
It’s more than mortal man can bear.
Those terrorists are everywhere:
on land and sea and in the air.
Network TV bill of fare
daily warns us to prepare
for bugs and bombs and poison air
and other things enough to scare
the bravest man to deep despair.
They hate our freedom so we’re told,
our way of life so uncontrolled,
our rich, our poor, our young, our old.
I guess their hatred just takes hold
and burrows in and makes them bold
enough to kill and spend their gold
and set in motion plans untold
to get us ALL, … or so we’re told.
Seems strange to me they don’t resent
the other guys who represent
a way of life with free consent
or those who are benevolent.
The only ones they seem intent
to devastate to great extent
are those whos aero-planes were sent
to bomb their homes with such torment.
Never mind, the war will stay.
We’re going to fight this all the way.
But there’s a price we have to pay
to keep the enemy at bay.
Let our leaders take away
our lives and liberty TODAY,
and then our fears will go away
that they’ll be lost some future day.
My phone is tapped. My mail is read.
They know the thoughts inside my head.
The money I deposited
is now reported to the Fed.
They chip my hand, dispense my bread.
I think they watch me go to bed.
I don’t object. I’m glad instead
to be controlled until I’m dead.
And so I very happily
let them take my liberty.
No matter what they do to me,
it’s all for my security.
You see, you see, you see?
I’m just as glad as I can be
to let them take my liberty.
No matter what they do to me,
it’s all for my security.
Being informed is not enough.
Freedom Force awaits you here.
ARE VACCINES SAFE?
A 3-hour seminar that answers with a resounding NO.
This seminar was conducted by Mary Tocco, an
educator on natural health with special expertise in the side effects of
vaccines. Her presentation has been seen by over 100,000 people and voted by
viewers across the country as #1 on this topic. She has packed 27 years of
personal research into just three hours, and you will be glued to your TV
screen every minute of the way. Drawing on scientific documents from
government agencies and university laboratories, she identifies the toxic
components of vaccines, how they are related to autism and other childhood
disorders, how vaccines interfere with the development of a normal immune
system, and how infectious childhood diseases had all but disappeared BEFORE
vaccines were introduced as a result of improved sanitation and nutrition.

THE FUTURE OF FOOD:
The Disturbing Truth about Genetically Modified Foods.
documentary is an investigation into unlabeled, genetically engineered foods
that have quietly filled our grocery stores for the past decade. It gives
voice to farmers who are under attack by the corporations that have created
this technology. It shows the grim health implications for an unsus-pecting
population and reveals how multinational corporations are seeking to control
the world's food system. (More)
documentary focuses on the growing police state in America and shows how the
Bill of Rights and the Constitution literally have been cancelled by recent
legislation and executive orders. With the next crisis, the President will
have power to confiscate all private property including homes, cars, and
money; all commercial property; all means of transportation; and can round
us up into work brigades. Anyone who criticizes can be imprisoned without
legal defense. Presidents now have more dictatorial power than King George
had when Americans fought the Revolutionary War to rid themselves of him.
This program includes a plan for restoring the Constitution without armed
STALIN, MAN OF STEEL.
History Channel documentary is more than just a biography of one of the world’s
most notorious dictators and mass killers. It shows how, in spite of
incredible crimes against his own people, Stalin was hero worshiped by them.
This was possible because the masses were easily moved in time of crisis
into viewing him as the embodiment of their nation, and loyalty to country
became blurred with loyalty to leader. Vital lessons for today.
The New Math of American Elections
documentary shows how the elections of 2004 and 2006 were stolen and who
did it. This is not a conspiracy theory. It’s the real thing! The people who
perpetrated this fraud remain in place to do the same thing in 2008 – and
every election thereafter. This has nothing to do with Republicans vs.
Democrats. It is about controlling the electoral process so that the common
citizen will never be able to break the grip of those who control both major
parties. This grip CAN be broken, but only if more Americans become aware
that it exists. That’s where you come in. Acquire this video and show it to
your friends. (More)
Vitamin C Deficiency Is the Origin of ALL Heart Disease.
sub-clinical scurvy, caused by a lack of Vitamin C, is the origin of all
heart and coronary disease. Does that mean everyone can be protected
simply by taking extra Vitamin C? Not quite. The first step is to
eliminate those conditions that deplete Vitamin C levels in the first
place. Here is the whole story told in fascinating detail. Simply
stated, coronary disease is preventable and reversible without drugs.
THE HIDDEN ELITE;
Testimony of Chauncey Holt, member of the JFK assassination team.
is the confession,
made eight days before his death, of a man who worked
in the joint service of organized crime and the CIA. Chauncey
Holt tells why the Mob and the CIA wanted JFK dead and how they carried
out his assassination. One of
Holt’s assignments was to create false ID papers for Lee Harvey Oswald
who he knew as a CIA undercover agent posing as a Castro supporter. Holt
reveals that there were several shooters, but Oswald wasn’t one of them.
He was set up to take the blame and draw attention away from the real
assassination team. DVD.
FILES ON JFK: The
confession of James Files, the man who shot Kennedy.
from prison, James Files tells how he was recruited by a Chicago crime
family and worked with the CIA to assassinate JFK. He
describes every step of the plan, names the key
players, and explains their motives. The
FBI claims that Files is not a credible witness; but you will be hard
pressed to agree after hearing hundreds of details that only could
come from intimate knowledge of the event and the players – including
Jack Ruby and Lee Oswald. DVD.
THE LATE GREAT U.S.A. The Coming Merger
with Mexico and Canada.
many people are still clinging to the belief that The U.S.will
never give up its sovereignty, the process already is far advanced. This
is not just a super highway between Mexico and Canada, but a total
political, economic, and military merger into what will be called the
North American Union, identical to the creation of the EU. Here are the
chilling details of a plan being implemented largely behind closed doors
by global elitists to terminate
the United States.

DECEPTION WAS MY JOB
The Testimony of Yuri Bezmenov,
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.
