WAS HITLER RIGHT?
Edward, I have met you, purchased and read some of your books and
listened to some of your tapes. Today I read an article (in Unfiltered
News) by Tim Wood 2008, Dec. 1 castigating and vilifying Hitler. I hate
war as it is almost always perpetuated for the love of money and control.
This latest article by Michael Walsh and Gunther Kumel in my view and
research really puts the blame where it should be, on the Money Masters whom
you know and have written much about. Tim's article in the realm of your
Reality Zone in my opinion does not add credence to your many
Donald Neuls, 2008 Dec. 17
REPLY FROM EG:
Donald, I agree that the financial elite and collectivist political leaders
in Europe and America at the time were deeply to blame for bringing on World
War II, but that does not make Hitler and his collectivist regime innocent
victims. The Nazis had eagerly planned for war as a means of pursuing their
own agenda as well. Nevertheless, in the spirit of not censoring the news or
stifling opinions that differ from ours, we are posting the link you sent
that leads to the article by Michael Walsh. Reader comment is invited.
The Myth of German Culpability
WHO SHOULD OBAMA APPOINT TO HIS CABINET?
Hello G. Edward Griffin,
I have been trying to spread the message of freedom since 9/11 but often
when I tell people that the CFR and the Federal Reserve have infiltrated our
government and are pursuing a globalist agenda I am met with a response that
members of the CFR and Federal Reserve get cabinet positions and are
appointed to positions of power because they are the most qualified to hold
those positions. I am sometimes challenged with the question "who is more
qualified than candidate X"?, and honestly I don't know who is more
qualified. So I ask you, who are the candidates for freedom which are
qualified to serve in the president-elect's cabinet that don't subscribe to
a globalist agenda? Are there enough to fill a cabinet? Of course Ron Paul
and Dennis Kucinic would be great choices but I am looking for other
Don Kiter, 2008 Dec 12
The question is loaded. It implies that selecting the most qualified
candidates will make a difference. In the real world of politics, by the
time candidates are available for choosing, the game is already over. The
real action goes on every day all year long within the political parties,
the media, the educational system, and all other power centers of society.
There are few freedom-qualified candidates for office or appointment,
because the channels of selection are in the hands of collectivists. Even
Kucinich is a collectivist, although not a globalist.
Unless the stranglehold of collectivism is broken, nothing will change.
That’s why Freedom Force is focused on gaining influence in the power
centers and is not trying to generate support for the least ill-qualified of
the existing appointees. It’s the same dead-end game as voting for the
lesser of two evils. We lose no matter who is selected.
Ron Paul would never be appointed and could not serve if he were. Cabinet
members, regardless of their personal convictions, will follow the CFR
agenda or be expelled.

BAILOUT REDUX (from David Hoyt, 2008 Dec 12)
Last week’s “Black Friday,” the busiest day of retail shopping in America,
saw three percent greater sales revenue, compared to last year. The jump led
most news outlets to sheepishly speculate that a consumption surge may stave
off the impending recession awhile longer. Perhaps the worst is behind us.
The more likely explanation of Friday’s sales spike is that Black Friday’s
bedlam is less painful than paying full retail. If that is indeed the case,
quarterly retail sales will total less than last year’s. In the current
economy, ... (More)
NATURALIZED AMERICAN CITIZEN DECLARED ILLEGAL ALIEN (from Alberta
Phillips, 2008 Dec 2)
I signed on for a travel assignment (nursing) with an agency in
Nebraska. I was to start this assignment in January. All the forms have been
signed and I thought it was a done deal. Suddenly on November 26 I was told
that they use a pilot program called E-Verify to ensure that all hirees are
authorized to work in the U.S. - well I was informed that I was
non-confirmed. Which means that I am not authorized to work in the U.S.
according to Homeland Security. I called the social security administration
and talked to a Mr Mannis who assured me that he could see no reason why I
would have been flagge. I felt encouraged and related this to my employer.
They sent me a form that I had to sign - which said that I either chose to
contest the Homeland Security designation or not to contest it. If I chose
not to contest it, they would put me in a category called final
nonconfirmation which would immediately take away my right to work. Of
course I signed that I contested the designation and immediately sent it
back to the employer.
Now a little background, I was born in Toronto, Canada in 1954. I was
brought to the U.S. in 1956 when my mother married an American citizen. She
went thru the immigration process and I went thru the naturalization process
and became a naturalized citizen in 1966 (if my memory serves me on the
date) anyway I was adopted by my father in 1958 as well. I never really
thought about it much since then. I applied and received a social security
card, received it without any questions, and essentially have gone thru life
til now, thinking all was well. I thought I was an American, patriotic and
supportive of this country, it is all that I have ever known. (More)
SOMETHING OF HISTORICAL PROPORTIONS IS HAPPENING (from Tim Wood,
2008 Dec 1)
I am a student of history. Professionally. I have written 15 books in six
languages, and have studied history all my life. I think there is something
monumentally large afoot, and I do not believe it is just a banking crisis,
or a mortgage crisis, or a credit crisis. Yes these exist, but they are
merely single facets on a very large gemstone that is only now coming into a
Something of historic proportions is happening. I can sense it because I
know how it feels, smells, what it looks like, and how people react to it.
Yes, a perfect storm may be brewing, but there is something happening within
our country that has been evolving for about ten - fifteen years. The pace
has dramatically quickened in the past two years. We demand and then codify
into law the requirement that our banks make massive loans to people we know
they can never pay back? Why? (More)

doesn't matter any more. I can believe how ignorant most people who deal
with money are about this subject.
Lately I have been asking bankers to explain fractional banking to me. Deer

TURN OFF THE TUBE - IT IS POISON TO THE MIND
Dear Mr Griffin:
I have long been a reader of "Unfiltered News." Thank you for the
opportunity to be able to read news with real truth in it. I want to comment
on television. All I hear and see from people about television would make me
believe, if I didn't know better, that there is an effective law forcing
people to watch television. Since I turned off the tube completely almost
five years ago, I find my mind opening up to new thoughts and original ideas
that are as "common sense" as can be, but seem to humor or appall other
people. And the fact that my children were raised almost completely without
television seems to make them a little different, too... actors rather than
RE-actors, definitely able to support themselves and their families, and a
strong contempt for lies and gossip... and propaganda, which they can easily
My advice is... if all we're going to see is propaganda, all we're going to
hear is lies, and all we're going to do is get more brainwashed and led
deeper into the "Pit of Distraction," why should we watch television? Indeed
the news, itself, seems to be some of the greatest entertainment on the
tube, but there is no truth... only lies that will take us farther and
farther from our true goal, a constitutional government. It is obviously
detrimental to our health and finances, and used by the powers we oppose to
accomplish all of the above. Keep the movies you love, but turn off the
tube. It is the single most devastating communication median ever devised,
and it is being very effectively used to develop and spread the only thing
that can defeat this once great nation... corruption from the inside out.
Turn it off. Block the air waves from your home. Let your kids, your family,
live without subjection, being able to make up their own minds, learning to
have a conversation that doesn't include the latest gossip and fad. Let them
grow up FREE of television and you will find out they will grow up FREE in
this nation, FREE in mind and spirit, FREE as God intended.
James 1:5-6 states: "If any of you lack wisdom, let him ask of God, that
giveth to all men liberally, and upbraideth not; and it shall be given him.
But let him ask in faith, nothing wavering. For he that wavereth is like a
wave of the sea driven by the wind and tossed."
Television changes subjects every 15 to 30 seconds. That, alone, is enough
to program young minds, and older folks alike, to be unfocused and wavering
and to accept it as normal and ordinary. We must stay focused in our minds
and spirits if we expect to accomplish our goals. Turn off the TV.

KATANGA; THE UNTOLD STORY OF U.N. BETRAYAL
This is the story of how the U. N., from 1960
to 1962, waged an unprovoked war against the peace-ful state of Katanga and
forced it under the Communist state of the Central Congo. Top U.N. personnel boasted in their public speeches and
memoirs of how they pretended to be preserving law and order while actually
carrying out a military operation to crush the tiny nation, all in the name
of peace. The great irony in this was that the free world was told – and the
American people firmly believed – that the U.N. army had been sent to the
Congo to “protect it from Communism.” The reason this story needs to be told
after all these years is that we have not seen the last of the U.N.
so-called peace-keeping forces. Unless the further development of what is
called the New World Order can be stopped, we are going to see a U.N. army
used more and more to bring its peculiar brand of peace to the world. The
best way to envision the future is to know the past. Black-and-white. 1991

UNSTOPPABLE GLOBAL WARMING (EVERY 1500 YEARS)
This New York Times Best Seller is a data mine of scientific facts showing
that global warming is not caused by human activity but by solar activity
and cosmic radiation – and the cycle has been occurring for millions of
years. The recent rise in temperature has created the most ideal climate for
civilization that Earth has ever experienced. The next cycle will be colder
and much less beneficial for mankind.
GREAT GLOBAL WARMING SWINDLE
First broadcast over Great Britain’s public service TV station, this
documentary deconstructs the myth that Global Warming is caused by human
activity. World-class scientists explain that it is caused by solar
activity, and that similar cycles have occurred many times in history. Solar
activity recently was high, so higher temperatures are the expected result.
In previous years, when industrialization was increasing at its greatest
rate, temperatures went down. (More)

science of harnessing gravity should have this book for the sheer enjoyment
of the unfolding story and as a serious reference volume.

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)

documentary focuses on the growing police state in America and shows how the

money; all commercial property; all means of transportation; and can round
us up into work brigades. Anyone who criticizes can be imprisoned without

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.

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
