IS THE BULL MARKET OVER FOR GOLD AND SILVER?
This is the greatest Silver and Gold buying opportunity of all time, or is it the end of a bull market?

The bull market is far from over. To say the precious metals bull market is over is as foolish as saying there was never a bull market in the first place. It's a documented fact, throughout history, all bull markets last 14-19 years. This bull market has been going since 2001. So we still have at least, another SEVEN years to go. Commentators, who believe that the commodity bubble in silver and gold has popped, don't understand what drives them in the first place.

Remember, if the fundamental reasons that drive a market don't change... The market direction has No reason to change. (More)

PRAISE AND VALIDATION FOR THE VIDEO:
KATANGA; THE UNTOLD STORY OF UN BETRAYAL

The following comments from Isabelle Iserbyt are in response to the re-release from The Reality Zone of an older video documentary entitled Katanga; The Untold Story of UN Betrayal. It can be viewed on the Internet here.

I served as secretary to United States Ambassador Douglas MacArthur in Brussels while the Katanga atrocity was taking place (1960-1963). I recall well the tragic story regarding Katanga related in telegrams coming in from Elizabethville. I dreaded going to work knowing that my inbox would be full of cables relating news of the massacre and rape by UN troops of innocent civilians, Katangese as well as Belgian. My hatred of the United Nations began at this time and continues to this day.

Ignorance regarding the role of the UN in enslaving all of mankind is almost universal. We can thank the UNESCO-controlled education system for that. For instance, how many people realize that the Vietnam War was a United Nations war fought under the auspices of the Southeast Asia Treaty Organization? The people who so correctly opposed the Vietnam War don't know it was a UN War. If they did, would they continue to strongly support the UN? And what of the role of the UN in the Middle East debacle? And the role of the United States military in carrying out the UN's agenda worldwide?

I pray fervently that this documentation will reach the widest audience worldwide. It is vital for all the world's people to view this devastatingly tragic film in order to understand how their country will be next on the list, when and if it resists becoming part of the New World Order under the UN. Tshombe's own account of what happened in his country (My Fifteen Years in Government, 1967, 103 pages) can be viewed at http://www.americandeception.com.

If only those receiving your email would take action by supporting legislation to get the United States out of the United Nations: H.R. 1146, the American Sovereignty Restoration Act.

Best regards,
Charlotte Iserbyt

IS WORLD CONFLICT REAL OR ORCHESTRATED?
Dear Ed,
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 chooses.

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 knowledge.

Hoping to hear from you and thanking you in advance,
I am, sincerely yours,
Frank Breckenridge

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?

Sincerely,
Wm. Tennant, 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, serve.

THE CREATURE FROM JEKYLL ISLAND; A SECOND LOOK AT THE FEDERAL RESERVE
by G. Edward Griffin
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)

THE FEDERAL RESERVE
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)

INVISIBLE BALLOTS;
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 POLITICALLY INCORRECT GUIDE TO GLOBAL WARMING AND ENVIRONMENTALISM
Here is scientific proof that: the Earth often has been hotter than it is now; only a tiny portion of green-house gases are man-made; most of Antarctica now is getting colder; the media only recently abandoned the global "cooling” scare; and more. These facts counter the global-warming junk science that is scaring people into meekly accepting more government. (More)

TORTURED IN RED CHINA
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)

THE FUTURE OF FOOD:
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)

HEALTH MYTHS EXPOSED

A former drug-design chemist confronts ten myths that prop up a sick health-care industry. He shows that FDA-approved drugs are NOT safe and effective, pharmaceutical drugs do NOT improve the quality of life, cholesterol is NOT bad for you, and other myths. There is a surprising bonus in the section on the real cause of obesity and why dieting and appetite suppressants usually don’t work – and the author shows what does. That section alone is worth the price. (More)

WASHINGTON YOU'RE FIRED!
This documentary focuses on the growing police state in America and shows how the Bill of Rights and the Consti-tution 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 them-selves of him. This program includes a plan for restoring the Constitution without armed revolution. (More)

UN-COUNTED
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)
