IS WORLD CONFLICT REAL OR ORCHESTRATED?
I have read your book The Creature from Jekyll Island. As a result I
obtained a fairly clear understanding of just how the United States was
“taken over” by certain powerful financial entities in circa 1913. I also
have a fairly clear understanding of the aims and actions of the, for want
of a better characterization, “Rhodesian Round Table” group, and its various
subsidieries (e.g. CFR-RIIA, “Bilderbergers”, Trilateralists, “Illuminati”,
Skull and Bones, et al.). For some time I had concluded that these entities
constituted a unified front dedicated to creating a one world or global
totalitarian state. And, that one of the main goals of this group was the
destruction of the American middle class because they see this class as
being one of the larger impediments to their goals.
This is apparently born out by the current economic situation in the United
States which does indeed appear to be the result of a concerted effort on
the part of certain powerful financial entities to destroy the American
economy. Such a destruction of the economy would have the greatest negative
effect upon the middle class. Then, presumably, the way would be open for
some sort of “North American Union”, wherein the sovereign nations of
Canada, United States and Mexico would be financially merged. For, if your
goal is to eventually have a one world state, you have to first create
smaller regional unions, such as the already extant European Union, then at
some later point in time you merge those unions, et cetera.
However, given that the above analysis is true, I find myself at a loss to
understand certain aspects of global geo-politics. I thought for some time
about who I could ask who might have answers to some of my questions, and
decided that you were probably the best person; especially since you wrote
the book that started my understanding of these situations! (and also due to
our joint membership in Freedom Force).
If there is a unified concerted effort on the part of one group of powerful
entities, then why do we see such diversity of forces? Let me explain. I can
see one group of powerful entities at work in the “West”, i.e. the United
States and its North and South American vassal states, Great Britain and its
Commonwealth, and the European allies. This group appears to be trying to
dominate the former Soviet Union by encouraging its break-up, co-opting many
of the former republics (the ‘Stans, Georgia, Ukraine, et al.) as well as
the former Warsaw Pact countries (esp. thru the Missile Defense system in
Poland and Czech Republic – more of which below). It also seems to be trying
to control the sources of petroleum which would give it enormous political
and economic power (hence Iraq, Afghanistan, Saudi Arabia, the Gulf States,
and the current threat to Iran.).
So far, so good. But! the way that the western ‘powers-that-be’ are going
about this goal seems to me to be counter-productive. They appear to be
pushing Russia into a corner. They are also threatening China. Russia is a
powerful entity in its own right with a nuclear arsenal and the ability to
project it inter-continentally; it is also proud of its sovereignty, i.e.
“Mother Russia”). China is another powerful entity because of its economic
power, especially its ability to bring down the U.S. economy any time it
Now, while “bringing down the U.S economy” might fit very well into the
plans of the western ‘powers-that-be’, it would, at the same time, severely
curtail the projection of American’s military power. Also, pushing Russia
into a corner runs the risk of a nuclear exchange, and such an event would
destroy a lot more than just the U.S. economy!
So, it has seemed to me that there is not such a monolithic ‘western power
entity’ afterall; that there is more than one group in positions of power.
And, that a loss of control over one of these groups, the so-called
“neo-cons”, may have occurred (ala Hitler)? Otherwise, why would we have
seen one group in the power structure, George H.W. Bush and James Baker,
attempt to rein in another group consisting of Richard Cheney and his
neo-cons via that Iraq Study Group? Also there may be another separate
group, traditionally aligned with the Democratic Party, which, while CFR all
the way, do not agree with the methods and aims of the neo-cons (I am
thinking of Brzezinski in particular).
This decision to put “defensive missiles” in place in Poland is very
dangerous. Have, perhaps, the neo-cons miscalculated? Did they think Russia
would not stand up for itself? that Putin would acquiese indefinitely in
their attempts to encircle the Mother Land? Am I wrong in thinking that the
“enemy of my enemy is my friend”? and therefore that in some strange way we
who want to preserve our freedom here in the United States, should be
rooting for Putin?
So, I guess what I am wondering is this: If you want to destroy the United
States financially, in order to move one step closer to its loss of
sovereignty, and hence its inclusion into this one world state, aren’t you
at the same time destroying its military pre-eminence? and hence thwarting
your own aims in other spheres?
As I suspect you’ll see, I have been thinking about this apparent
contradiction for over a year and it took me this many words to communicate
it. I know you are a busy man and I do apologize for the length of my
letter. I know of no one else who might know the answers. Others I have
spoken to just do not know; they seem to lack the breadth of experience and
Hoping to hear from you and thanking you in advance,
I am, sincerely yours,
Hello Frank Breckenridge.
I am flattered by your confidence in my ability to unravel the mystery you
so aptly described. I will have to disappoint you by confessing that I do
not have answers to all your questions. It is obvious that the world is
divided between two opposing forces of collectivism (Leninists vs.
Rhodesians) but the question is whether these forces are truly independent
of each other or are they controlled from deep behind the scenes by a common
directorate that orchestrates perpetual conflict as a means of conditioning
society through perpetual fear. I cannot tell you that I know the answer but
I must admit that the second answer explains more of what we see in the
world than the first.
THE LAND OF THE FLEA AND THE HOME OF THE SLAVE
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 '...at 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.

SOVEREIGNTY MEANS OWNERSHIP OF PROPERTY
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.

IS THE LACK OF DOMESTIC OIL PRODUCTION GOOD?
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?
2008 Aug 7
MR. GRIFFIN'S REPLY:
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,
INTERNATIONAL MOVEMENT TO CONVICT BUSH OF MURDER IS AN ATTACK ON U.S.
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.

The Persecution of Falun Gong
The Testimony of Charles Lee
Dr. Charles Lee is one of the few political prisoners held in Chinese
prisons who has survived to tell about it. After receiving a medical degree
in China, he came to the U.S. in 1991 for graduate study and soon thereafter
became an American citizen. In 2003 he returned to China to proclaim the
truth about government persecution of Falun Gong, a non-violent, spiritual
movement dedicated to “Truthfulness, Compassion and Forbearance”. He was
arrested and sentenced to 3 years in prison where he was beaten, force-fed,
and tortured, which he describes in gruesome detail in this video interview
by G. Edward Griffin. On January 21, 2006, Charles was released and returned
to San Francisco. Now he is a leader in the movement that has motivated
millions of members of the Chinese Communist Party to resign. (More)

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.

that it exists. That’s where you come in. Acquire this video and show it to
