Last night I attended a “Tea Party” in Van Nuys, CA. and to my surprise there were maybe 1,000 or more in attendance. Even more surprising was the fact that I realized that I had fallen smack-dab in the middle of a mostly -- right-wing rally.

I thought it would be more of an “End the Fed” type of rally with a lot of Ron Paul types but I was wrong. It was mostly Reagan loving conservatives who seemed to be throwing an angry temper-tantrum against “Socialism”. Even the cars passing by honked long and loud as the throng of sign holders cheered and egged them on.

Closer to the main local government building there off Van Nuys Blvd, was a stage where hundreds of tea-bag-carrying people crowded close to listen to anti-socialism and Obama-bashing speakers.

There were, to my relief, about 5 to 10% End the Fed signs and or references to protect our Constitution, and that gave me some hope for these common folk who seemed to be waking up from a long “no-worries-‘cause-we-got-a-conservative-in-the-White-House-nap” during 8 years of Bush.

Regrettably, all this commotion seemed to be a prodded result of conservative media pushing the buttons of these well meaning but myth-guided “red” half of our nations sheeple. Now that the “blues” are in the White House, it’s their turn to protest.

In spite of its apparent manipulated inspiration, I saw a ripe opportunity that could backfire on the Big-Brother power elite controlled media. Now is the time to sidle-up to our myth-informed countrymen and inform them of two key elements that could lead them down the rabbit hole of truth.

Number one: They are totally primed to see “America: From Freedom to Fascism” by Aaron Russo. Next Tea Bag rally—hand out as many of these as you can. This will start to undermine their loyalty to the GOP by introducing Ron Paul and/or Liberty ideas that the “fake” conservatives refuse to embrace.

Number two: After they’ve seen “Freedom to Fascism” they are ready to learn about the illegal formation of the Federal Reserve in the middle of the night in 1913 and how our dollar since then has lost 97% of it’s value. There are plenty of good DVDs that expose this most egregious fraud on the American public. Once they’ve digested this bit of truth they will be ready to connect the dots of 9/11 and the global agenda..

Now crank up the duplicators and get those DVDs ready as we have a splendid “wedge-issue” to help de-program our “red” brothers and sisters and re-align them with true issues of Liberty and Restoring our Constitution. In time, Obama will start to disappoint his believers and we can de-program them next.

Remember, the main objective is to expose the two-party system to be a fraud, supported by a corrupt media – which in turn, and with the grace of God… will unplug them all from the matrix of untruths. Our “red” and “blue” countrymen need us… and we need them. Only in large numbers can we challenge the power elite for their quest for a New World Order.

Dear Internal Revenue Service,
On this April 15th tax return due date you will find enclosed my
2008 tax return showing that I owe $3,407.00 in taxes.

Please note the attached article from the USA Today newspaper,
dated 12 November, wherein you will see the Pentagon (Department
of Defense) is paying $171.50 per hammer and NASA has paid
$600.00 per toilet seat.

I am enclosing four (4) toilet seats (valued @ $2,400) and
six (6) hammers (valued @ $1,029), which I secured at Home Depot,
bringing my total remittance to $3,429.00. Please apply the
overpayment of $22.00 to the "Presidential Election Fund," as
noted on my return. You can do this inexpensively by sending them one (1) 1.5 inch Phillips Head screw (see aforementioned article from USA Today newspaper detailing how H.U.D. pays $22.00 each for 1.5 inch
Phillips Head Screws). One screw is enclosed for your convenience.

It has been a pleasure to pay my tax bill this year, and I look forward to paying it again next year.

TO: Editor, Science News
We are not renewing our subscription to Science News because of our great disappointment in your promotion of the man-made global-warming myth. I cannot imagine anything less scientific than that. We are not neophytes on this topic and are well aware of the emotional responses and political agendas behind this myth. Global pollution is real. Global warming (man-made) is scientific fraud. If you publish this in the letters section of your next issue, you might be surprised at how many subscribers agree with this assessment.
G. Edward Griffin, Publisher, Unfiltered News, 2009 Apr 14


Hello Ed,
After reading a quote by John Adams regarding law firms, my memory was stirred by something I read over 15 years ago. It's in regard to the fraud perpetrated against the American people by way of the disappearance of the "Titles of Nobility and Honor" clause of the 13th Amendment. So I did a lazy search and found some very interesting information. It's not new, so I'm sure you're very aware of it. Here's one of the sites I found:

At the site they have a list of 20 sections of discussion. The history section could be a page right out of "Creature from Jekyll Island". It gives the low down on the unholy alliance of bankers and lawyers.

I appreciate the interpretation of what a bow means to a person of the Islamic faith, but I can tell you what my American interpretation is. When one man bows to another and the gesture is not returned then the man bowing is showing submission to the other, or if one man bows more than the other without making eye contact during the gesture he is also showing submission to the other. Obama did both! That bow was an insult to his Office and to the American people.
Kent Gibson, April 13, 2009


I am the writer of this article, and I chose to focus on Korb's statements about escalating in Afghanistan in the headline in order to get the most widespread readership and hopefully reach some Obama supporters. However, Korb really lets his hair down and says some revealing things about the elitist mindset and influence of the CFR.

Reader "H.M." submitted a very thoughtul and well-articulated letter today, in which he/she stated, as a Muslim, "In Islam, bowing (or any form of prayer or worship) to anyone or anything other than Allah/God/The Creator, is considered an act of treachery to God himself. I know that because I am a devout Muslim (I pray that Allah accepts me as one). There are no sources for Islamic teachings other than what is found in the Quran and example of Prophet Muhammad (hadith). I challenge anyone to find in these what supports this ludicrous assertion made by the writer of that piece."

Not being a Muslim, I cannot debate this point. However, having lived in The Philippines for some years, I happen to know that the act of "Mano Po" ("the hand, Sir") is a traditional form of obeisance or respect. It involves placing your head lower than the head of the elder or superior, and grasping hands, then placing the elder's hand against your own forehead. The elder or superior thereby imparts a blessing, and respect is shown.

The Philippines are contiguous with Indonesia, and it is my understanding that this custom descends from Islamic influence even throughout the predominately Catholic country of The Philippines. I suspect that Obama was trained to do this as a child, and it's a training that comes so natural and spontaneous that he may not have thought it out beforehand.

Perhaps you have readers familiar with Indonesian culture who can further enlighten us. But I'll agree with H.M. that it's not really a bow.
Technically, it's not "bowing", unless you are tall, and the other person is short, in which case it sure does look like it. It's more a matter of not looking down on your elders.

H.M. asks if there is something wrong with being a Muslim. Of course not. Not in and of itself. But when a man who claims to be a Christian, but with a distinctly Muslim background, gets himself elected head of a nominally Christian nation, and then appears to give more deference to a Saudi King than he does to the Queen of England, one is being reasonable to ask why the double standard. This so-called Christian president, I hear on radio, has not attended church one time since the inauguration. Okay, he's busy.

He is particularly busy apologizing for all the sins and crimes and inequities of America, both real and perceived, going back many generations. This is hardly the way to engender respect, but hey, he's president and I'm not. Part of the job is that he cannot expect to escape the heat when he does things that offend people.
Daniel New, Texas, 2009 Apr 10


Dear Mr. Griffin,
I pray that this reaches you and your loved ones in best conditions. I am one of many who learned a lot from you, and try to do their part in educating others about what is really happening in today's world, so we can act accordingly. Thank you.

One of the items in the last newsletter (2009 Apr 3) was: Obama breaks presidential protocol and gives Islamic bow of submission to king of Saudi Arabia. Sean Osborne of the Northeast Intelligence Network wrote it for Canada Free Press.

While there are many other important issues that we should be talking about, I found myself compelled to write to you regarding that piece, for the sake of the accuracy and integrity of the newsletter. This newsletter is one of the rare tools in today’s information jungle that I rely upon for receiving accurate information to help me form educated opinions about issues we have to deal with.

The writer of that piece concluded that this act of Obama was an Islamic act of submission. In other words, he concluded that bowing down to this Muslim king is somehow embedded in the teachings of Islam. That is simply wrong. In Islam, bowing (or any form of prayer or worship) to anyone or anything other than Allah/God/The Creator, is considered an act of treachery to God himself. I know that because I am a devout Muslim (I pray that Allah accepts me as one). There are no sources for Islamic teachings other than what is found in the Quran and example of Prophet Muhammad (hadith). I challenge anyone to find in these what supports this ludicrous assertion made by the writer of that piece.

I’m not sure what Obama was really doing, but if he did bow with the intention of showing the Muslim people that he respects them, I have a message for him: don’t bow except to your creator and apply justice. True Muslims are saddened by you bowing down to a western-supported dictator, while the injustice they experience are done with the support of the U.S., and in many instances, by the U.S.

The other point that the writer of that piece concluded is that by bowing to that king, Obama must have been -or is currently- a Muslim. After we established that bowing to anyone but God is forbidden in Islam, and that what Obama did was not a Muslim act, is there something wrong with someone being a Muslim? Is it unconstitutional for an American born Muslim to be president? What if Obama had also bowed to the British queen, what would this writer and the hysterical orchestra say about it?

The writer of that piece is affiliated with the North East Intelligence Network. I’ve been carefully watching their work for the past few years because of the alarming trend I saw coming out of it. As you can read on the about page of their website, it states that this entity was founded as a response to 9/11, and that their logo represents the 4 airplanes of 9/11. They accepted the fairy tale the government told us about 9/11 as fact. They are trying to create awareness about terrorism –unfortunately- by trying to link the teachings of Islam itself to terrorism. This works very well with the agenda of the “masters of the universe” who wants to take us for another joy ride, this time in Iran. As many similar entities and persons, they claim that they are against “radical Islam” and not against “moderate Islam”, but in reality their work spells out their hate for anything that resembles Islam or Muslims. They write about a few other issues such as China, but the main focus is “Islamic terrorism”.

This is an alarming trend for many reasons including:
1) It shows lack of understanding of what is really happening in the world, and who are the real power centers and brokers behind the scene.
2) It shows lack of understanding of what are the true teachings of Islam. Anyone can read the Quran for himself or herself and find out what it really says.
3) Their approach is inline with the mindset of an inevitable clash of civilizations and the us Vs them mentality.

I hope that you find what I shared reasonable and am looking forward to your comments and/or reply. Thanks and take care.
Respectfully Yours,
H.M, 2009 Apr 10


Ed -- normally I would not suggest to someone to watch TV, yet in this case, please share with Diana and all your readers, the show on History Channel, entitled "Ancient Aliens". It will stimulate them to reach beyond their current limiting paradigm.
Steven, 2009 April 10


I am a new subscriber. My research over the past months, which includes Mr. Griffin's and others' writings about the Fed, money and the global economy, have convinced me that this understanding of our financial system is plausible.

I think it does the movement a disservice, however, to bring up the topic of aliens, as a recent reader did. First of all, in my opinion the idea is preposterous. More important, however, the reader's comment and the reply, gave me pause as to whether the point of view expressed in Mr Griffin's work, is sound and not the work of fuzzy thinkers at best, or paranoids at worst. I was so dismayed to see alien conspiracy juxtaposed against the very real possibility of government/ banking financial manipulation.

The reader ended his discussion by saying, "reality is fragile and we can never be completely sure of it" Hmmm, is that real? I guess we can't even be sure of that statement. It is not logical to say that we can never be completely sure of reality, that is unless one's mental state has been seriously compromised. I am certain I am sitting here typing on my keyboard. And how is reality fragile? Will it break, and if it does, what happens? Again, such an illogical statement belies a lack of clear thinking and by printing it, I feel it compromises the integrity of the work of Mr. Griffin and others. I'm sure we can ultimately uncover the truth about the Fed, international banks and the role our government is playing in the future of our country and the world. If the truth is not exposed now, we will definitely find out eventually. And it will be so real., so real, so real.
Diana M., 2009 Apr 6


Thank you, Diana, for your critique. We did hesitate when adding that statement to our Readers’ Comments section, but the key word in our news service is UNFILTERED. If we filter out someone’s opinion because we or others may disagree, we are no better than those who control our major media. We operate under the assumption that, if the topic is of interest to a large percentage of readers (and the possibility of alien life definitely is in that category) and if it does not violate The Creed of Freedom or our Code of Conduct, we have an obligation to give it exposure. We have utmost confidence in our subscribers to make their own evaluations so long as all sides of a controversy are given fair treatment. Your critique is a perfect example of the kind of interaction we welcome and which we think is healthy for a free flow of unfiltered information.
Ed Griffin


I very much appreciate your taking the time to reply. I have listened to your interviews and watched your videos, and as a result, I have been devouring information and books on history, economic theory, and other relevant topics. I'm very much attempting to have an informed position.
I do understand your desire to give every civil subscriber a voice on your blog. Of course, I would prefer that the topic were limited to the Fed and the global banking establishment and all its ramifications. Otherwise I kind of feel like I'm playing Julia Roberts to your Mel Gibson. But that's okay, I get it. Your readers are your readers.
Again thanks for your thoughtful reply.
Diana M.

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.

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)

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 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)
