ANSWERS TO PRIVACY AND TECHNICAL DTC QUESTIONS
by Glen O'Hara, 2008 Nov 2
Actually the new DTV is quite safe. It's a one-way transmission; and
within this "new" technology as used by local broadcasters, there is no way
for anyone to gather private information, spy on you, peek into your living
room, etc. So relax. This facet of our television system is now referred to
as "over-the-air" or "terrestrial" television, to distinguish local
broadcast transmitting stations from "extra-terrestrial" (satellite) or
"cable." This distinction being unnecessary in the 1950's and 1960's. With
the purchase of High-Definition TV's exploding over the past few years,
people are anxious for "High-Def" content. I was an early adopter of HDTV
and customer of the "VOOM" satellite service pioneered in 2003 by Rainbow
Communications, part of Cablevision in NYC, and its visionary CEO James
Dolan. He was just too ahead of his time to convince shareholders of
Cablevision to continue funding "VOOM" until it could turn a profit. His
Son, Charles, actually sided with shareholders and "VOOM" went out of
business, selling assets and programming to Dish Network, then "Echostar
POSSIBLE CONNECTION BETWEEN OBAMA'S BIRTH CERTIFICATE AND ARNOLD THE GOVERNATOR?
Dear Mr. Griffin,
Thanks as always for your realityzone website. unfiltered news is my first
stop for information. I agree with you that something is being hidden from
the public vis a vis Obama's sealed birth certificate. My two cents
on the subject says that he is not an American citizen qualified to be
President according to the Constitution, but that seems rather obvious.
I think that the Rockefellers, et al., want him elected, and then
perhaps let it be known that he has indeed not been born in America. Then
they will parlay this fact into amending the Constitution so that this is
not a problem.
Then the road will be paved for the Govenator Arnold to goose step us into
the NWO. Of course, I hope this is not the case.

IS THE AMERO COIN DISINFORMATION?
There is an e-mail circulating containing the following link, which
leads to a video made by a man named Hal Turner, an ex- radio talk show
In the video Turner declares that billions of Amero coins were coined by the
U.S. Government's Denver Mint, and that the Secretary of the Treasury
shipped the Ameros to China. That by February the financial condition in our
Republic will be such that the North American Union (the joining of Canada,
US and Mexico) will come into being as a result of the “dollar” ceasing to
pass as currency. That Americans will be forced to turn “dollars” in at a
loss for Ameros, the currency of the NAU.
In checking out Turner’s story, it was discovered that Ameros are being
coined by a private mint:
After going to this website, scroll down to the 20 Amero copper coin and you
will see it is the one Turner is describing in his video.
It was also discovered that Turner is alleged to be an FBI operative. That
he constantly advocated use of violence on his talk show, which would be one
of the modus aperandi of such an operative. The following link takes
you to the website that reveals the FBI allegation:
Please pass this along to prevent your fellow Americans from being
victimized by this alleged agent provocateur. Beware of such e-mails;
remember, under the political and financial conditions we are living, the
atmosphere is ripe for disinformation. One of the uses of disinformation is
for the messenger to lose credibility, and thus be neutralized.

PRIVACY AND JUSTICE IN THE DIGITAL AGE
from Jerry Day, 2008 Oct. 25
in Response to the letter from Ryan from Florida, 2008 October 21
Questioning the capability of digital television systems to collect personal
The mandated conversion of television from analog-to-digital allows
government to profit from you by reselling spectrum that had been tied up in
the analog system. You will pay this hidden tax as various agencies,
investors and spectrum "developers" pass the costs of the spectrum
commoditization and "sales" on to you.
Government will be collecting large fees for frequency spectrum that it does
not own and which costs it nothing. Since government claims the authority to
"regulate" spectrum, it goes one step further and claims the right to profit
The private broadcast and cable television industry must spent hundreds of
billions of dollars to convert the entire pipeline to very expensive digital
equipment and formats so your government can make a relatively paltry and
unearned spectrum sales windfall.
RESPONSE TO PICTURE OF OPEN GRAVE PAINTED ON CEILING OF SMOKERS' LOUNGE
(Last week's edition)
Hey, smoking was not such a problem for the native Americans..... they
probably walked 10 miles a day and ate a much more vegetarian diet.
They gave humanity tobacco, the tomato, the potato, corn and the first
democratic and representative form of government. So maybe tobacco wasn't
their best contribution. But we still stole their silver and gold, which we
used to set up a stable international currency.
We sure have forgotten a lot, as we can see in the news!

IS THERE A HIDDEN STORY BEHIND DIGITAL TV?
I frequent the Reality Zone as a reliable source of important information.
Thank you for your efforts to provide this information.
I came across something that I have not seen commented on anywhere from a
socio/politcal standpoint: the federally mandated transition from analog
television to digital television.
I have tried to read up on why exactly this is happening, but the "why" does
not seem clear. The dominant story that I get on internet searches I've done
is that in digital "the picture is better." If that is the case, why is the
government requiring analog to be shut off? Shouldn't they just leave it be
and eventually the superior product will take hold? This is what it says on
"Analog television service isn’t as efficient as DTV. It uses up much more
valuable spectrum that - once the DTV transition is completed - will be
provided to public safety organizations, such as first responders including
fire and police departments. Remaining spectrum will be auctioned off for
the production of new services. "
Also, from what I understand, digital television sends its information in
computer bytes, unlike analog. It would stand to reason then, that the
information transmitted via digital would be subject to more cyber-tracking,
control, and monitoring mechanisms than analog. Is it not sort of like
having radio over the airwaves versus radio on the internet? The internet is
much more "trackable" by the powers that be, as opposed to the free
airwaves. Anything on the internet can be tracked to an IP address and then
a physical address. Could it be the same for digital television? A tool for
I do not know much about television or this new federal mandate which
evidently will require us to purchase a "converter box" if we have old TVs.
Have you heard anything about this issue, or do you know of someone who may
know the repercussions of this?
Ryan from Florida, 2008 October 21
Until now, I have not given any thought to the subject "surveillance via the
TV" because of the all the advert language and related jibber-jabber.
I think I read an article about the future government spy range being
expanded to include TV a long time ago, but then it was something like
science fiction used to make another junk movie.
Now, because of computer technology, digital TV does come with better
picture quality and sound, but the price being paid here will be the spy
machine of the Feds which will keep track of your favorite channels, times,
programs and another background file that will be filled with everything
except your naked body in the shower.
Why? Political correctness, mindless brainwashing, never question your
politicians, never upbraid the banker because it's HIS money You are using.
I am switching to cable because I live in an apartment and have no other
option like a homeowner would with satelite dishes. Also the cable will
revolutionize my snail-paced operation with my otherwise fast XP program
on the outmoded dial up which prevents video and audio ops from normal
runs as that is more like a snail in the sun on frozen ground.

READER THINKS GRIFFIN'S VIEWS ARE TOO EXTREME
Dear Mr. Griffin,
While browsing your website and looking at some of your excellent
articles, I read through your missive "future calling", and the creed
that you expound.
I am merely an ordinary plebeian, so I may not understand all your
sophisticated thoughts, but you seem to have become very religious
about your individualism to the point of extreme. You seem to have
lost sight that it is not a religion you are expounding which needs to
be puritanical, but what matters to people, what is workable, and what
is their need. It is a human invention, and it needs to serve human
needs. Here are just two points where your ideas become dicey. 1) A
blood family is a unit, separate from an individual, and separate from
the extrapolation of its converse to a totalitarian state as you
imagine all combines to become. While you someplace state that there
needs to be a balance and extremes are no good, you again swung back
in your creed exposition to deny any existence of any grouping, for
the abstract fear of its limit. I remain unconvinced. 2) There is no
notion of public commons. you want all things privatized and run on
market forces in true competition. Sorry - don't buy it when the
demand can be infinite on limited supply or limited ability to acquire
it, or essential services and "things" need to be held for the common
good of all the peoples, especially to meet their existential needs.
This includes air, water, electricity, money creation (that you
concede), air waves, etc. etc. You want total deregulation, and
government out of all responsibility other than the minimal ones you
list. All that too is utopia isn't it? Many things you have stated are
good, as good as apple pie. If you tone down your rigidity, which to
me, sounds almost like religion, the ideas would be more implementable
as a happy compromise of the things you have so well articulated. I
really like your clarification of the emphasis on non-coercion. That's
great. I don't like your sole emphasis on all or nothing approach
towards individuals or totalitarianism. While many arguments can be
made to show what happens in the limit - it is not the limit for which
we design the operating envelope of any system. As a system architect
in electrical engineering, I know that from my own professional system
design experience. See my patents listed on my website to verify my
credentials for what I assert if you wish. Here too, a gentle system
that does what's desired by the people for whom it derives its power
and to whom it serves, as you rightly put it, can create a balance.
Your emphasis on principles is excellent. I appreciate that very much.
While I learnt from your essay, I don't agree with its fundamental
Zahir Ebrahim, 2008, October 18
I am saddened by your comments because they tell me that I was not
successful in convincing you that the battle between collectivism and
individualism is not subject to compromise. As I see it, in the end, only
one will survive and there can be no permanent middle ground. Collectivism,
like pregnancy, once begun must go to full term or be aborted. There is no
such thing as a balance between pregnancy and non-pregnancy. Government
power never voluntarily stops short of total.
Although my ideological beliefs are not in the same category as religious
beliefs, nevertheless, I do hold them to be extremely important. They may
not relate to my life in the hereafter but they do relate to my life in the
here and now - which is no small matter.
I am dedicated to freedom for myself and my fellow man. If the day should
come when you find yourself in abject slavery in a collectivist state, I
know that you, also, will be extreme in rejecting the system that enslaves
you. I think the only difference between us is that you probably don't
believe it could happen to you, whereas I believe it now is too close to
Thank you for taking the time to express you view.
ZEITGEIST ADDENDUM REJECTED, POINT-BY-POINT
by Daniel Morin, 2008 October 21
I agree entirely with Mr. Griffin regarding Zeitgeist Addendum.
The first movie, Zeitgeist, is much better than its Addendum. The first part
of the first movie is more a matter of opinions. The second part documents
actual facts about 9/11. The third part gives a brief overview about the
Federal Reserve. If I had to recommend the first movie, I would recommend
only the second and third part.
After reading Mr. Griffin’s comment, I decided to watch the third part again

A Discourse on Government by G. Edward
“Government is not reason. It is not eloquence. It is force. Like fire,
it is a dangerous servant and a fearful master.” – George Washington
G. Edward Griffin responds to questions from a camera crew creating a video
documentary on the U.S. Constitution. He answers the most difficult
questions imaginable in the fields of political and social science. The
depth and clarity is amazing, especially considering he is speaking
extemporaneously without script or notes. In an era when many people are
just now waking up to the WHAT of current events, here are issues for the
brain that go far beyond that shallow pool into the deep water of WHY and

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

It reads like a detective story – which it really is, but it's all true.

THE FEDERAL RESERVE
A Discourse by G. Edward Griffin
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
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)
FIAT EMPIRE; The Federal Reserve vs. The Constitution
documentary shows how the Federal Reserve creates inflation, destabilizes
the economy, causes wars, and enriches financial elitists at the expense of
the common man. You will learn that the Fed is not a government agency but a
banking cartel, and you will understand why many Americans view it as a
sophisticated form of organized crime. (More)
A Temptation for Electronic Vote
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
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
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)
HEALTH MYTHS EXPOSED
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!
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
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)
