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
publications.
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.

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 not-so-obvious picks.

Thanks,
Don Kiter, 2008 Dec 12

REPLY:

Hello Don.
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.

That you won't be done Till he has no dough.
When he screams and hollers,
Then tax him some more,
Tax him 'til He's good and sore.
Then tax his coffin, Tax his grave,
Tax the sod in which he's laid.
Put these words upon his tomb,
'Taxes drove me to my doom...'

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 sharper focus.

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)

BANKERS GIVE DEER-IN-THE-HEADLIGHTS LOOK

Mr Griffin,
I teach C.E. to insurance agents nationally, and lately I have been sharing a power point presentation about the Federal Reserve right from your CD I got at the Ron Paul rally in Mpls, MN. I will teach this class until it 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 in the headlights look is what I get.
Thank You,

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 assess.

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 introduction by G. Edward Griffin. Originally released as a VHS tape, this program has been re-mastered in DVD format.

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. (More)

THE 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)

SECRETS OF ANTIGRAVITY PROPULSION

This is a history of theories and experiments regarding antigravity travel. It is a virtual encyclopedia of data, blueprints, and photographs. Includes information on electrogravitic effects now used in advanced military craft, such as the B-2 bomber, and in missiles. Everyone with an interest in the science of harnessing gravity should have this book for the sheer enjoyment of the unfolding story and as a serious reference volume. (More)

THE 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)
