Although we are unable to engage in personal correspondence, we deeply appreciate your contribution. Thank you.

I was just wondering what your thoughts were concerning a short You Tube video I just watched reporting from CNN news, that a Russian professor is predicting the U.S. will disintegrate by the year 2010! He contends that America will split up into regions where certain states will group together independently, thus doing away with the U.S. as we know it. Your comments would be appreciated.
Mary S., 2009 Jan 15

We have passed over this story because we do not have confidence in the source. Pravda always has been the propaganda arm of the Russian collectivist government. The story line is fairly plausible, and there may be some truth to it, but Unfiltered News does not want to become an unwitting dupe in the battle between Russian collectivists and American collectivists. Thanks for asking.


From John Hammell, President of International Advocates for Health Freedom, Jan 15, 2009

As the first person in the world to ever call attention to the Codex International threat to health freedom (via an article in Life Extension Magazine in 1996) I speak with authority when I say that the (so called) Natural Solutions Foundation is not trusted or respected by any LEGITIMATE health freedom organization in the world including IAHF, NHF, ANH, AAHF, Mayday, La Leva di Archimede, Health Freedom Australia, The New Zealand Health Trust,The Dr.Rath Health Foundation, Well TV and others.

NSF is a controlled opposition group that is misdirecting the grass roots on the Codex issue. They would have people believe you can stop Codex AT Codex. You cannot! We have no influence over unelected bureaucrats from the world's FDAs at UN Codex meetings and never will. Everything that occurs at those meetings is decided before the meeting even takes place.

The only chance we have of stopping Codex (and the thing NSF never talks about) is by stopping regional harmonization through which the USA is being dismantled and forced into a North American Union Dictatorship modeled after the EU, which is a Dictatorship.

If NSF were for real, they'd be urging the grass roots to push for Congressional oversight on FDA's Trilateral Cooperation Charter with Canada and Mexico via which FDA is harmonizing the food and drug regs of all 3 countries as if a North American Union were already in existence. See

This question came to us from a subscriber who is struggling with the question: If religion must not be the authority for government, then what should be? He writes:

“The Declaration of Independence states that in respect to the opinions of mankind, we must give a reason that impels us to separation. I understand our movement is focused on freedom, but where is the justification for it? I agree whole-heartedly that the Constitution makes no mention of God, and in my opinion, rightly so. We do not want to offer freedom and then force someone into a paradigm of beliefs.

“However, if our freedom movement is to fight for freedom, on what justification are we doing it, or in other words, why would the NWO be wrong in clearing the earth of 90% of the population? For the sake of argument, let's suppose there is no God, the atheist was right all along, and evolution is true. On what authority can we justify that our desire for freedom is right and the NWO desire for our enslavement is wrong?

“The 10 Commandments for the NWO posted on the Georgia Guidestones hold evolutionary and atheistic values that clearly show that the world's population needs a 90-95% decrease. What makes that wrong? I know it's wrong, because I can say there is a Creator who grants rights, and the NWO has no authority over the Creator to take them away.

“I'm asking the movement to please explain to me how we justify that the NWO would not be saving the planet and resources by getting rid of all the 'inferior species'? Without using God as our answer, on what authority do we justify that our desire for freedom is right and the NWO desire for our enslavement is wrong? If this movement cannot justify that its basis for freedom is right over the NWO, why are we doing it? We need to state a reason that impels us to separation.

“Thank you,
Christopher J., 2009 Jan 13


Hello Christopher.
Regrettably, I must be very brief, but the essence of my thought on this is very simple. It really makes no difference what authority we choose. We can write proclamations all day long and claim God’s word or logic or philosophy as our authority, but they mean nothing unless we are able to back our proclamations with physical force. Those with the winning armies choose whatever authority they wish.

It wasn’t philosophy or the recognition of a Creator expressed in the Declaration of Independence that carried the day. It was the Continental Army. Those who win on the battlefield always determine the laws and can use any authority or justification they wish. Therefore, those of us who believe in freedom cite the philosophy expressed in The Creed of Freedom, and that’s quite sufficient, provided we can rely on the power of government to enforce it. But remember, that power is greatly restricted by the Creed itself. It is limited to the defense of life, liberty, and property. Without that limited power, however, we have no enforceable rights. That’s why the motto of Freedom Force is: “Those without power cannot defend freedom.”

The government is attempting to decrease the population for political and social purposes huh. It seems like the ultimate goal of the elite is to create this one world government where everyone has been implanted with an RFID chip. Anyone who refuses that chip will pretty much be disqualified from all society and all whom already have the chip will have very little room to protest. I've even heard from sources that there are plans to develop a technology in which micro chips can be surgically placed in the brains of infants so that as they grow up they will be subject to mind control via special wave frequencies. Sounds crazy but everything on the subject conspiracy is relatively crazy and should at least be considered with an open mind lest we become hypocrites.

Anyway, a one world government ruled only by a few seems like all the political and social control the elite could ever need. A large population doesn't seem to be what's standing in their way. For the elite, control of the masses is not terribly difficult. The entire world for the most part is constantly lied to and psychologically manipulated by the media. The TV does a near perfect job of telling people what to think and do. That's social control right there. And what about political control? Well if almost everyone at the upper echelons of government are all part of the same secret organizations then that would mean that politics is nothing more than just another stage act that is broadcast through your TV. In my logic, it seems that managing mases of people is not really difficult as long as you have the proper ratio of number of elitist to numbers of the masses. The ratio will always remain the same no matter the amount of people on this planet.

And so this still leaves me to wonder why the government is attempting to reduce the world population. I mean, if you believe that natural mechanisms will always keep the population in check then why is the elite even going through the trouble to do it manually? It seems the agenda of the elite is not entirely clear. There seems to be something more underneath the surface that we haven't discovered yet. The agenda almost seems other-worldly. Well anyway, if I'm in need of any correction on my thoughts or if you have any comments then I would greatly appreciate that. If not, then I think the readers of your weekly news letters may find my letter to be of some interest. Thanx for reading.

Hi from Mr Jonny & Ms Eve in Sweden. What do you think of these spooky photos from Mar? Is there something out there in space. Is is an angel? demon ore something else???
Received 2009 Jan 8



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


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.

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:

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

GENERATION RX; Children As Victims of Anti-Depressant Drugs

Follows the trail of dishonest advertising, falsified research, deceived doctors, corrupt corporate executives, distraught parents, and drugged children – a trail that leads to a wave of youth aggression and suicides. Millions of young people have been falsely diagnosed as having a brain chemical imbalance and given anti-depressant drugs that are destroying their minds. Even the most informed person will be shocked by the facts and testimony in this documentary. The human race depends on exposing and then stopping this pseudo-science of death. (More)


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. We have not seen the last of 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.

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)


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)


This is a history of theories and experiments regarding antigravity travel. It is a virtual encyclopedia of data, blueprints, and photographs.

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)

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)

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 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.

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)

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)

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)

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)


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)
