UN wants to tax producing countries on their consumption of oil and use the revue (what's left after paying UN expenses) to fund government projects in non-producing countries. Pure collectivism.

US; House passes 90% tax on bonuses to anyone at a company that received bailout. While many cheered, Congressman Ron Paul called the measure a distraction, a disgrace, and unconstitutional. He is right. The problem is the HUGE expansion of money that Congress approved, not the relatively small bonuses. The bill merely allows politicians to appear that they are protecting taxpayers when, in reality, they are robbing them blind. Raw Story 2009 Mar 19 (Cached)

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

No one mentions that AIG was the insurance company that insured the Twin Towers SPECIFICALLY against terrorism a month or so before 9/11 happened, and then paid off on the towers' collapses TWICE based on a friendly lawsuit between friends Larry Silverstein (who owned the Towers) and his buddy Maurice Greenberg, (CEO/owner of AIG) ????

So it would seem that AIG is right in the middle of things---and has been for some time. Anybody care to spend a bit of time connecting THOSE dots?????

I recall reading a few interesting points made by another reader, Terrence, in the Jan 16th issue of the Reality Zone newsletter. The person's question was basically, why are the elites going through all the trouble to reduce the world's population? The easy answer is, in my opinion, that the elites really don't quite control everything just yet. It seems they want absolute total control over absolutely everything, which they clearly don't have yet -- otherwise I wouldn't be able to write this message to you. The camera in my room would alert the government of my activity and they'd immediately turn off my microchip -- if I'm even allowed to own a computer as a slave.

They don't control everything yet. They don't own all the land yet. They want it all. But... I do have to agree with Terrence nevertheless. His/her words were:

"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."

I believe this statement is very insightful. Researchers such as David Icke, Jim Marrs, and others have talked about this. I too think there is something other worldly to the elite's agenda. With that said, I wanted to share an article with you. I don't know how much of the author's opinion is true -- but anything is possible and we should not take it lightly. Upon reading his web site and corresponding with him, he seems like a knowledgeable and very thoughtful person. Here is the link to the article...

The Montalk web site discusses topics that most folks in the freedom movement seem to ignore. But if we have enemies beyond the elites who we know, we certainly need to know about them. Tom Montalk outlines the dark hierarchy as follows...

Demonic overlords (5D negative)
Nordic occult overlords (lower 5D negative)
Nordic crusaders and Mantis beings (upper 4D)
Lower demonic minions (astral)
Reptilian Minions and other negative aliens (lower 4D)
Grays, which are genetically engineered robots (semi 4D/3D)
Upper Illuminati (occult, possessed, secret society people) (3D, a little 4D)
Shadow Government (underground bases, ultra-black ops military)
Lower Illuminati (political elite, Bilderbergers, etc…)
Open secret societies (freemasons and so on)
State / local government, corporations, university systems, etc….

I don't know how much of this is accurate but I thought you and other readers may find this of interest. Thanks for reading my letter.
Ankur, 2009 Mar 18


This is something I thought about and just wanted to share: The Herd.

We often call those who either are not aware of or think that everything is ok concerning what is going on in our political environment as sheep (sheeple). There are more animals within the fence than just sheep though.

Let's picture a rather large pasture. As we view this pasture we see that there are lots of sheep but there are also many cows. Then we notice that the pasture is fenced in with barbed wire. Most of the sheep don't even realize there is a fence at all, some see the fence but think everything is ok because after all they have food and water and they are able to do everything they want to do within the confines of the fence. The sheep go about their business everyday unaffected or not caring about their situation; bah, bah.

The cows on the other hand don't like the sheep being in their pasture and see them as being quite worthless for the most part. The cows see the fence and know that they are fenced in; they don't like this. The cows see over the fence where there are greener pastures, they want to be there. They see that the pasture is getting smaller, the fence is being moved inward restricting their grazing and the sheep are also bothering them more. Every once in a while a cow or two push against the fence to test its limits but they won't do more than that out of fear that something bad may happen to them; they may get hurt by the fence. Very rarely the fence breaks and a few cows get out and feel free but only to be rounded up and put back into the pasture; these cows are considered trouble makers and are shunned by all the sheep and many of the cows. The cows complain about their situation almost all the time but never really do anything valuable to get out of their dilemma, after all they're cows they've been bred to be obedient and not think too much. The cows go about their business everyday not liking their situation but unable to affect change; after all they're cows; moo, moo., 2009 Mar 15


I was directed to your website by a comment on my blog. Further to your analysis on gold confiscation [in the U.S.], you may find my commentary on the issue in an Australian context of interest.
(Click here for commentary.) Note that I will be constantly editing the text in the link above as new information comes to hand, so that it becomes the definitive discussion on confiscation in Australia.

Mr. Griffin.
I'm re-reading your book. You foretold the current economic crisis exactly as it has come to be! You scripted the cover-ups and lies being told by politicians and the Federal Reserve to the letter. As you pointed out, anyone that had read and understood anything about United States and world history could see this coming.

Thank you. But its is a very sad thank you. My wife and I saved and planned for our retirement. We are now watching Washington steal our hard earned retirement fund. If Obama and cronies have their way we will be bailing out Europe......Again!! The Fabians have been very patient.
Durbin Williams, Williamsburg VA, 2009 Mar 10


Hello Ed.
You can't imagine how much I enjoy reading your book [The Creature from Jekyll Island] and loaning the well read and battered copy that I have to others who are fascinated by it. Please also put me on your mailing list and send any newsletters that you publish. After all I'm serving 17 years in prison for trying to spread your message about the Federal Reserve System, which I'm proud to do so because everything in your book is 100% true, and every American needs to read it.

I laugh every day as I watch what is going on in this nation and I know why it's happening, while those in Washington refuse to wake up and change their ways!

At the present, taxpayers are spending $25,000 per year to lock me up, which is the first time in my life the government ever spent a dime to take care of me ... and they certainly never did anything to help me; so, at 61 years of age, I feel like that's better than living on $500 per month Social Security IF I had spent 40 years paying into that Socialist program, which I didn't. In a way, making the government spend 4 times more than they would pay me to live on Social Security is some kind of justice, after all. If life will not allow me to live in peace with those morons who simply will not let people live the American Dream, I'd rather be here than on the outside worrying about all the things the tax payers are having to worry about today.

I'm still trying to educate as many Americans as possible ... even if they are locked up. Someday these folks will be out of this place and they will at least know the truth.

Hello Mr. Griffin,
The Electronic Frontier Foundation (EFF) has created a Surveillance Self-Defense site to educate the American public about the law and technology of government surveillance in the United States, providing the information and tools necessary to evaluate the threat of surveillance and take appropriate steps to defend against it.

What is worse than surveillance society? Meet the bionic reporter here.

Also, Mr. Griffin, it would be very interesting to have your opinion on the subjects of Wikipedia project as its articles are written and edited by a hidden army of people with unknown interests and biases. Here is a description of a new interesting tool called WikiDashboard, that aims to reveal much of the normally hidden back-and-forth behind Wikipedia's most controversial pages in order to help readers judge for themselves how suspect its contents might be.
and some more discussion on the subject.
Best regards,
Glib Galkin, 2009 Mar 7


Thanks for the link, Glib. On the face of it, this looks like an excellent tool, and I expect to use it a lot. However, when I visited the site this evening, it appeard to be non-functional - or perhaps I did not understand how to use it. I will be checking back later.

The important and very misunderstood issue of state sovereignty is creating a lot of excitement across the U.S. "State sovereignty" is the the phrase describing the power the states have over the federal government. Since the states /created/ the federal government, they are more powerful. The /creator /is more powerful than the /creature/. The tenth amendment of the Constitution - "The powers not delegated to the United States by the Constitution, nor prohibited by it to the States, are reserved to the States respectively, or to the people" - affirms state sovereignty. Sadly, since the War Between the States, the roles have reversed. The federal government/ /has been telling the states what to do and has created thousands of pieces of unconstituional legislation encroaching on the rights of the states and the people. And many states have had enough.

Dozens of states across our country are creating resolutions affirming their sovereignty and telling the government to back off. Pennsylvania is one of them. HR95 is a resolution introduced by Representative Sam Rohrer. Here is the resolution.
Here is Mr. Rohrer explaining HR95.

After Mr. Rohrer posted his video, the response was, I quote, "literally overwhelming". Here is the video he posted a few days later.

The rally supporting Rohrer's resolution will be on March 16th at noon in the Main Capitol Rotunda in Harrisburg, PA.

On 2/17 Greatview wrote and asked why is our government only claiming a total of 6,000 or so dead US servicemen from Iraq and Afghanistan combined, when they have shipped back over 16,000 coffins?

I read some years ago that our government only counts them as battle casualties if they die "on the ground" in one of those two countries. If they are wounded in battle, and medavaced out to Germany or elsewhere, and they die anywhere but on the ground (like if they die in the aircraft thirty seconds after takeoff); then the US government does NOT count them as a war casualty.

My husband and I just listened to a CD of Ed Griffin explaining the formation of the Federal Reserve. It's shocking how much manipulation and deception of which we are the victims, under the banner of Democracy. Having this perspective now, I understand why you say that the labels--Socialism, Facism, Republican, Democrat, etc. just don't matter.

We do have a question: Who is going to bail out the US when we citizens no longer have the money to pay? If the goal is to reduce the citizens of the US to poor "peasants" like other 3rd World countries, then the time is coming when we peasants won't have the money to pay the interest OR the principal on loans. Does not the whole fraudulant system then collapse? Where then is their power? Won't those in power eventually be shooting themselves in the foot?
Mrs. Cook, 2009 Feb 28

Hello Mrs. Cook.
This concept deserves thoughtful analysis covering many aspects of the drama but, in my view, it all boils down to this: The elitists do not expect the common man to pay for this current debt in terms of money. In the face of crisis, people now are exchanging their personal freedom for security, or at least promises of security. At the end of that process, money as we have known it disappears and becomes merely digital impulses in accounts assigned to each person. Those digits will be used to acquire the necessities of life. The quantity people receive will depend on their service to the state and their willingness to cooperate. Those who obey will be told where to live and what work to do. Those who dissent will be cut off and will starve or beg. The elitists’ power will lie in total control over the economic lives of their subjects. Common people will support the government, not with taxes, but with human effort. They will be slaves to the system. Money is not a significant factor under slavery. Masters do not collect money from their slaves. Instead, they possess the output of their labor.
Ed Griffin

It was with total disbelief that my wife and I recently discovered that the Federal Reserve is directly involved with educational programs in our children's high school. There is a program called "International Economic Summit", IES. Its stated purpose is:

"The IES program is a world trade simulation for high school students, which teaches fundamental economic concepts within the context of international trade. ... The Summit program is a ten-week economics curriculum designed around the theme of international trade and globalization. Over the course of the semester, teachers guide their students in preparing to serve as virtual Economic Advisors to their assigned countries."

Here is a link to their website:

These pages to the Bay Area chapter are even more very revealing:

Obviously, they assume that the "fundamental economic concepts" are Keynesian. The children stand no chance!

I hope you find this worth sharing with your readers who may not be aware of the extent of the indoctrination our children are subjected to.

MAKING A KILLING: The Untold Story of Psychotropic Drugging
This documentary exposes how psychiatry and the pharmaceutical industry have invented so-called mental diseases that are merely conditions of normal human experience – such as shyness or anxiety. Their goal is to convince everyone they have a mental condition that must be managed by prescription drugs. This marketing ploy has led half the population into dependency on medications for the rest of their lives. People are harmed more than helped, and these drugs kill an estimated 42,000 people every year. Learn how to protect your family from this brutal money-making machine. (More)

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)

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)

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.

Part 3: Cultural Subversion and 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)
