The following comment is in response to an article dated August 14 headlined: "US: Military advocates use of mind control and brain-altering drugs to make soldiers want to fight."

That is not a new concept. In the 1950s, the military tested a substance termed 'BZ' on soldiers who were not advised beforehand of the 'possible' consequences of consumption. BZ is a psychoactive substance which military manuals described as ' least 100 times more potent than LSD.' One exposed soldier jumped to his death from a window. Can experimentation on unwitting 'members of the workforce' be far behind? One last thing: Note my use of the Bushism, 'members of the workforce.' We are no longer 'citizens.' Welcome to the Land Of The Flea and the Home Of The Slave.

I am concerned that there can be no national remedy for the collectivism you so correctly describe without first there being a clear and definitive understanding of what exactly individualism is that withstands judicial and legislative spin. Exclusivity of  Property Right is the key to that understanding.  and guess what -- the vast majority of Americans have no idea what that means. In my opinion, referencing "national sovereignty" without  limiting that by individual sovereignty over property has a tendency to further the collectivist goal. Here is my essay on this topic. I hope your readers find it of value.

There has been much discussion lately concerning domestic oil production as a result of high and higher oil prices. Many political and economic leaders seem to believe that domestic oil production would curb the rise in oil prices in the near future if we would simply drill for oil here in the U.S.

As it is right now, we purchase a large amount of our energy needs from outside the country. We exchange our dollars for their oil. We get the oil. They get the funny money. Thus we are shielded from our own inflation.

It's my opinion that if domestic oil production would ever be granted on a large scale by Congress, wouldn't this create more inflation by keeping our dollars in the country? Does my theory have a leg to stand on?

Wm. Tennant, 2008 Aug 7


It’s difficult to predict the effect because there are so many interrelated factors, including the high cost of domestic oil caused by massive limitations imposed by the environmentalist movement. A large proportion of the money we pay to foreign oil producers is funneled immediately to the multinational oil companies who have contracts to process the oil and deliver it. Some of the largest of those, of course, are U.S. based, although that does not guarantee that the money would return to America.

It sometimes is theorized that exporting our fiat money for valuable resources and goods is advantageous to America because foreigners get worthless paper while we get things of value. I do not agree with this, however, because a great deal of that money eventually does comes back home to buy equities in American corporations and banks, real estate, mineral resources, and political influence. Eventually those who received our dollars end up owning huge chunks of America.

When all is considered, it is my opinion that it would be to our clear advantage if we were oil independent and once again had strong domestic industry. History has shown that those who produce, rule. Those who do not, serve.


In Unfiltered News you posted a video with the caption: "Discussion of convicting Bush as an international war criminal is gaining momentum and actually appearing in mainstream media, as in this amazing example" Brasscheck Posted 2008 July 31

I got excited reading the caption, however after watching the video i felt like this was an endorsement for world government. George Soros has been running the ACLU, and all they have been concerning themselves with lately is Bush and torture. Thats all you ever hear, and now I'm not surprised that the ACLU is inadvertenly aiding this move toward world government. Soros was thanked by the World Federalist Association in a video I found for his contributions. They never mentioned specifically what it was, but I see it now. I think there should be more elaboration on your video link about what the danger really is. I'm not in favor of a world court having the power to prosecute our president. We need to do that ourselves and we need to do it by getting involved and not waiting for someone else to do it.

We agree wholeheartedly that this development represents a mixed bag of good and bad features. Perhaps your comments will alert others to the potential trap, so we will post them to the Readers’ section of the weekly news. Thank you for your perceptive analysis.


Mr. Griffin,
I thought I would share this tidbit with you, as it is your uploaded video (Katanga, the Untold Story of U.N. Betrayal) to Google that I shared in this post to the History Channel that was deleted. I find it stunning that I'm censored almost always anywhere on-line where I share the 6 minute clip of Ezra Taft Benson, too explosive perhaps to be tolerated? At any rate, thank you so much for your great information, your many years of exposing the "hidden things of darkness" that must come to light.

Here is a post I sent out recently explaining the complete censorship of videos on the Internet: (Click here to see the complete post.)

Where does money come from? Where does it go? Who makes it? The money magician's secrets are unveiled. Here is a close look at their mirrors and smoke machines, the pulleys, cogs, and wheels that create the grand illusion called money. A boring subject? Just wait. You'll be hooked in five minutes. It reads like a detective story – which it really is, but it's all true. This book is about the most blatant scam of history. (More)

A Discourse by G. Edward Griffin

The author of The Creature from Jekyll Island; A Second Look at the Federal Reserve adresses such issues as: Who created the Fed? How is money created?
What impact has this had on the American Dollar? Should our currency be backed by gold or silver?
Where does government get most of its funding? Why do bankers get away with it? What might happen if we continue on our current path? What might come from a return to constitutional money? (More)

A Temptation for Electronic Vote Fraud.   Governments are installing computerized voting systems with no paper record to verify accuracy. Elections will be controlled by companies that do not allow voters to inspect their software. If vote counting becomes privatized, there may be no way to get it back. High-tech vote fraud is already a reality. If you value your vote, you absolutely must get this information to your friends – and fast! (More)

The Disturbing Truth about Genetically Modified Foods.

This 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)

This 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 revolution. (More)

The New Math of American Elections
This 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)

THE LATE GREAT U.S.A. The Coming Merger with Mexico and Canada. Late Great USAWhile 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. (More)
