SHOULD WE BAN NEWS SOURCES THAT BLASPHEME?
Brasscheck TV has been occasionally linked to by "Unfiltered News" because of some of its clips that you feel are newsworthy. I am writing to you today because of the daily email I received from them today, which was pure and simply blasphemy against the Creator - Yahweh my Elohim.

George Carlin is dead now (the presenter in the email), but Brasscheck TV showed its true colors as godless and therefore not worthy of recognition by me or by you, by presenting this "entertainer" as proof that church and state ought to remain separate.

I admonish you to discontinue any association with Brasscheck TV because it has allowed the blaphemous message of George Carlin, in the most detestable and abominable presentation I have ever heard, to be disseminated to an otherwise unsuspecting audience. Brasscheck TV should be censored by anyone that fears the all-powerful Yahweh!!!
G.S., 2008 November 7

REPLY:
We do not endorse any particular source of news nor do we censure it. Brasscheck is collectivist in orientation and, as you pointed out, very opposed to religion. Their mindset is what now is called the Progressive Left. Yet, every once in a while, they carry a program that contains valuable information that, as far as we can tell, is entirely true. When that happens, we link to it.

Some subscribers have urged us to distance ourselves from religious-based news services because they are offended by that orientation. Yet, to do so would be an equal violation of our policy. We take the truth where we find it. We even take news from The New Your Times, The Los Angeles Times, Newsweek, ABC, NBC, CBS, Fox, etc., in spite of the fact that some of the greatest blasphemies and lies ever told have come over those channels of communication.

Because we accept all sources of information does not mean we accept all details of information. We have a nose for lies, distortion, and propaganda, and none of that will ever appear in our news unless accompanied by our own analysis to alert readers to the defects.

Truth about corruption on the Right often comes from Left-leaning sources. Truths about corruption on the Left often come from Right-leaning sources. If we took information only from sources with which we agreed on all issues, we would be left with merely quoting ourselves, and we would miss a great deal of truth.

The promise of Unfiltered News is to present the truth, no matter the source. We think that is a necessary and wise policy.

THE INFLATION VS. DEFLATION DEBATE
Dear Mr. Griffin,
I have been a long time student of your books and seminars and I hope you would take a moment to hear what your student (employed within a location one block away from Wall Street in New York) has to say.

There is a lot of talk on whether there is an inflationary problem or a deflationary problem currently in the United States. Indeed, gas prices have come down dramatically and the prices of most commodities have been hammered. The way I conclude, and please feel free to comment, is that we are indeed currently in a deflationary crisis. However, this temporary deflationary atmosphere, I feel will eventually be followed by a massive inflationary wave.Permit me to explain to you the details of my conclusion...

The Federal Reserve system, as you know, is in effect when Banks are engaged in the business of lending to one another and to the public. It is foolish to assume that when the Fed prints money, that it will reach the people's hands immediately. It certainly takes time. But before the money the Fed prints is available to the people, it must filter through the network of banks. When the network of banks stop lending to one another and maintains tight lending standards and simultaneously is injected with liquidity by the Federal Reserve, then the balance sheets on the banks rise astronomically. Therefore, the banks are currently sitting on a wealth of injected cash right now. The reason why the inflation has not kicked in high-gear yet is because the banks who are sitting on this enormous cash from the Fed has not gone out on a spending spree of lending. When banks stop lending, it is then when the deflationary phenomenon starts to emerge throughout the public. However, the banks cannot sustain in not lending to one another for long and eventually they would need to circulate the money they are sitting on. As soon as they begin that lending, is the very first occurance of a major inflation cycle of what is to come.

Therefore, the deflation that we are seeing now is a result of the banks conduct in not lending and circulating the money they obtained from the Fed. There balance sheets are very high at the moment. But as soon as they begin the cycle of lending, is when inflation will kick in hard, fast and furious. For those people that say we are in a deflationary cycle are more short-term analysts, whereas the people who say we have inflation are more long-term analysts. The proper way of resolving the inflationary/deflationary debate is saying: We are indeed facing a deflationary crisis, which is a stepping stone to a major mega-spike of inflation

Is this a fair explanation? Thanks!
Kemal, 2008 November 12

REPLY:
Hello Kemal.

I think your analysis is accurate. The only thing we might add is that, in addition to the money created by the Fed that has gone into the banks but not yet injected into the public money supply, there is a huge amount of money created by the Fed and being directly injected into the public money supply by government spending for military, welfare, and boondoggles. This has partially offset the deflationary effect of mortgage shrinkage, stock market collapse, loss of savings, and other downward pressures. Without this direct government expansion of the money supply outside the lending mechanism, deflation would have been much worse.

I believe that, as long as the Fed exists and as long as Americans are content to elect politicians who are beholden to it, the nation is doomed to endless money expansion to the point where deflation eventually will be overcome by the tidal wave of inflation. In the process, all vestiges of a free market will be destroyed, and the presence of money won’t even be an issue anymore. There won’t be any. It will be replaced by a totally manipulated system of debits and credits controlled by the government and allocated to citizens through debit cards or embedded chips on the basis of their rank within a totally collectivist society. It’s not a pretty thing that is happening before our very eyes.

ANSWERS TO PRIVACY AND TECHNICAL DTV 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 Communications." (More)

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.
Happy Halloween,
Ryan Sparks. 2008 October 30

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 host:
http://video.google.com/videoplay?docid=1954933468700958565&hl=es
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:
www.dc-coin.com/index.asp?Category=8&PageAction=VIEWCATS.
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:
http://www.splcenter.org/blog/2008/01/11/neo-nazi-threatmaker-accused-of-working-for-fbi/

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
i
n Response to the letter from Ryan from Florida, 2008 October 21

Questioning the capability of digital television systems to collect personal data. 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 from it.

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. (More)

              ===================================

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 dtvtransition.org :

"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 more surveillance?

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?

Thanks.
Ryan from Florida, 2008 October 21

READER RESPONDS:

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.

DANGEROUS SERVANT;
A Discourse on Government by G. Edward Griffin

“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 HOW. (More)


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)

FIAT EMPIRE; The Federal Reserve vs. The Constitution
This 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)

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)

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)
