IS GRIFFIN JEWISH BECAUSE HE BELIEVES THE "PROTOCOLS OF ZION" ARE NOT AUTHENTIC?

I read G. Edward Griffin’s document about why he thinks the Protocols are a fraud. (Here is the link for those who are interested.) He actually believed the CIA Director was telling the truth. That’s really funny!

Israel blew up Pan Am 103 and blamed it on Libya, and blew up the La Belle Disco in Berlin, and blamed that on Libya too. The book by an Israeli Mossad agent titled “By Way of Deception” outlines how the Mossad carried a transmitter up the steps of an apartment in Libya, and sent out a faked message in “Libyan code” ordering that the La Belle Club be blown up in Berlin. Then Israel blew it up, blaming it in Libya again in the American media. And the CIA fell for it, even though France warned them that Israel did it. France knew the Israelis had sent the message, so they didn’t let Reagan fly bombers from England over France to bomb innocent people, so Reagan had to use an aircraft carrier to bomb innocent people in Libya for Israel. Remember that?

Doesn’t Ed know that 6 Jews own all media in America? Or is he one?

In 1967 they attacked the USS Liberty trying to blame it on Egypt, and then lied repeatedly later in their own books about it. In 1963 they murdered JFK and blamed that on Lee Harvey Oswald, and with their power of the media, kept that covered up for 45 years. We didn’t know the Mossad did it until 2008. (I have the photo of Lee Harvey Oswald in the doorway of the School Book Depository at the very moment JFK was shot). And Ed thinks the Protocols are a fraud?

In 2001 they attacked the World Trade Center and blamed that on Osama bin Laden, who also said he had nothing to do with it. How in the world could Ed believe that student pilots could fly a 757? And how could 4 different airline Captains, fail to defend their cockpits on the same day? Who would believe such a stupid story?

Didn’t he notice that there’s no airplane crash in the Pentagon, and that flight 77 wasn’t scheduled to fly on 911? And also NO airplane wreckage at all in that “empty field” in Pennsylvania? Is everybody brain dead?

Couldn’t he tell that building 2 was being “blown up” when he looked at the still photos? It did NOT “collapse” like they told us. Is Ed going to believe “his eyes” or what the Jewish owned media tells him? Doesn't G. Edward Griffin know that the whole 911 “Conspiracy Theory” is a fraud? How could he not know that? Unless he’s Jewish pretending to be Christian?
Skip Baker, 2009 Jan 8

REPLY FROM GEG:

Hello Skip.
You have made a huge leap of logic. I do not defend Israel nor do I challenge many of the facts you presented in your email. You asked my opinion of the Protocols, not of bankers, the JFK assassination, 9/11, or current affairs. If you had asked my opinion of any of those, my answer would have been fairly close to your own analysis, but certainly not on all points. It is faulty logic to lump everything into the same bag.

It certainly is true that present-day political Zionists are promoting the New World Order (along with a great many non-political Zionists), but that does not prove that the Protocols are authentic. You would never win your case in court with that kind of logic – and you will never win allies to your cause unless they already hold you viewpoint. If you wish to expand your influence, I urge you to stick with hard facts that you can prove. There are plenty of those to do the job without adding speculation.

VINTAGE VIDEO OF KGB DEFECTOR SHOWS 4 STAGES OF HOW TO SUBVERT A NATION. STILL VALID TODAY
Dear G. Edward Griffin,
I have recently published on YouTube a new Yuri Bezmenov series of videos in which he details his 4-stage KGB scheme for the takeover of Western societies. Very, very good; worth every minute.
Here is the link.

The videos are available in higher resolution than the YouTube standard. All one has to do is add the code &fmt=18 to the end of the raw video URL. Example:

Thanks and God bless,

WHY THE AMERICAN PEOPLE MUST BE DISARMED
This quote was sent to us by Ursel Doran, 2009 Jan 4

Before a standing army can rule, the people must be disarmed; as they are in almost every kingdom in Europe. The supreme power in America cannot enforce unjust laws by the sword; because the whole body of the people are armed, and constitute a force superior to any band of regular troops that can be, on any pretence, raised in the United States. A military force, at the command of Congress, can execute no laws, but such as the people perceive to be just and constitutional; for they will possess the power, and jealousy will instantly inspire the inclination, to resist the execution of a law which appears to them unjust and oppressive.
~ Noah Webster

UNPLUGGED FROM DIRECTV
Dear Mr. Griffin,
Yesterday, after years of frustration and disappointment with TV programming, commercial saturation, censured and slanted news casting, biased "documentaries" and over priced subscription fees, I finally called Directv and canceled my service. It occurred to me later in the day that a powerful message could be sent to our ever expanding government if the back bone of America unplugged the manipulation machine sitting in the living room.

I remember too, that there was probably no single person more influential in black balling the Ron Paul presidential campaign than Rupert Murdoch, and he is not only at the helm of Fox, but Directv as well.

Just a thought, but consider the implications, especially with the federally mandated digital signal rule pending next month.

HAL TURNER AT IT AGAIN. THIS TIME PRAISING CIVILIAN INSURRECTION
On New Year's day, a friend sent me an email containing a message from Hal Turner, a former talk-show host who, indirectly at least, is calling for insurrection against the government. After reviewing numerous serious crimes committed by the President and the President-elect, the Congress, the Federal Reserve Chairman, the Secretary of the Treasury, and Justices of the Supreme Court, Turner says:

"By themselves, any one or even two of these problems would be merely an illness that the Republic could deal with. Suffering all of these problems at the same time amounts to Cancer. A cancer that is killing our Republic.

"There are only two ways to deal with cancer: either you kill it or it kills you. As a thinking person, it ought to be plain to you at this point, what solution we have in mind and why we're telling you repeatedly, in advance, to be not afraid. We are going to do what HAS to be done. When it happens, do not be afraid. This has needed to happen for a very long time to protect this Republic and the USA will be better off once it does happen.

To those of you who are about to be dealt with, you brought this on yourselves."

MY REPLY:

Mike, be very, very careful. Turner may not be what he appears to be. There may be agent provocateurs in our midst trying to precipitate an armed revolt that, not only would be easy to put down, but would provide the usurpers with a handy excuse to declare martial law. This may happen anyway, but we don’t want to be suckered into making it easy for them.

Turner implies that there is going to be a well organized wave of citizen-led arrests and/or assassinations. Anyone who cheers such a plan could get caught in a well-laid trap designed to identify the most militant dissenters and then "disappear" them into the prison gulag.

Be very, very careful.

HOW CAN WEB PAGES BE SAVED FOR FUTURE REFERENCE?
What do you use to grab a webpage and "archive" it? You keep a cached version of these articles on your Yahoo site, which I think is a great idea. Thanks.
Sean Ackley, 2009 Jan 1

REPLY:

In Internet Explorer, when you want to archive a web page, go to File > Save-as > and then choose the format you want. Other browsers have similar options. We prefer mht (Microsoft Hyper Text) because it saves everything in a single file, but Yahoo does not accept that, so we select html. That works OK but often the links and some of the images are lost. All you have to do is create a directory for your saved files and periodically move them to a CD or DVD for archival storage.

COFFEE DURING PREGNANCY
I just read the article about caffeine in pregnant mice that you linked to in your latest issue of Unfiltered News. I have to say as an expectant mother who does at times indulge in coffee, the title scared me. When I read the article, though, I was somewhat relieved. The mice in the experimental group were not ingesting caffeine; it was being injected into them. There is a difference in how the body metabolizes an injected substance vs. how the body metabolizes an ingested substance that needs to be further researched before we can conclude that coffee may be bad for unborn children. I would like to see the same study repeated where the mice are eating the caffeine (it could be added to their chow) rather than getting caffeine injections. Until then, I'm not sure it's worth getting too excited. Having said that, I do believe there are other studies which show caffeine might be a risk factor in pregnancy. The pregnancy books generally recommend mothers-to-be limit their caffeine intake but outside of the Weston Price Foundation (which I actually consider to be the nutrition gold standard), I haven't seen anyone advocate for total abstinence. The Weston Price Foundation founder believes any amount of caffeine or alcohol is bad for everybody. I'm a believer in exercising moderation for those things, and even more moderation during pregnancy. Anyway, I just wanted to mention that the study's conclusions may be premature. I'm open to the possibility of that being true, but I believe they should have the mice taking caffeine the same way humans do in their next study. I suspect the impact of ingested caffeine isn't as pronounced as the impact of injected caffeine is, and it may even be undetectable. Pregnant women should definitely avoid taking caffeine injections!

Re; SOMETHING OF HISTORIC PROPORTIONS IS HAPPENING
by Tim Wood 2008 December 1

Hello Edward, Below are brief comments re your recent news letter regarding the posting by Tim Wood.

The money circulating in most countries on this planet is owned and totally controlled by the elite - the bankers and their cronies and minions. We simply rent it from them - the rent is called interest. That ownership has been sealed with the blood of Presidents. Make no mistake about it. The Federal Reserve has to tell us nothing, and there is no one who will force it to tell anything. Only the unbearable pain of total collapse will wake people up.

The Myth of German Culpability is an excellent look at the flip side of the coin. Don't forget as well, that Germany could not have gotten far in it's war efforts without an incredible amount of support from American industry and banking - Rockefeller, Henry Ford, and Prescott Bush for example.

General Motors must get special mention. GM’s wholly-owned company, Adam-Opel, during WWII, was one of Germany’s main manufacturers of tanks, trucks and bomber engines. In 1938, just months after the NAZI annexation of Austria - James Mooney (President of GM Overseas Corp) was decorated by Adolph Hitler with the highest Medal Germany could give a Foreigner - the Order of the Eagle with Cross, and in 1942, W S Knudsen (president of GM 1937 - 1940) was recognized in a special way by the U.S. Army. No he wasn’t arrested for conflict of interest or conspiring to arm the enemy, he became the first civilian to be made a U.S. Army General.

NEW DVD:
KATANGA; THE UNTOLD STORY OF U.N. BETRAYAL

This tells how the U. N., from 1960 to 1962, waged an unprovoked war against the peaceful 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)

DECEPTION WAS MY JOB
The Testimony of Yuri Bezmenov, KGB Propagandist

Yuri Bezmenov, the son of a high-ranking Soviet officer, was a member of the elite propaganda arm of the KGB, known as the Novasti Press Agency. One of his assignments was to accompany journalists visiting the Soviet Union to make sure they did not discover the truth about Soviet life. After becoming disillusioned with the oppressive system, he escaped to the West at great risk to his life. In this interview, conducted by G. Edward Griffin, Mr. Bezmenov tells how the Soviets used propaganda against their own citizens; how he hoodwinked American journalists into publishing Soviet propaganda, how slave laborers are concealed from foreign visitors, and how he escaped to the West posing as an American hippie. Includes many photographs brought with him on microfilm at the time of his escape.

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)
