Hello Ed,
Being Bulgarian and knowing my country better than the so called journalist that made this "documentary", I am highly suspicious of its contents. First as far as I remember Mr. Ivanov's name is his real name. He was all over the Bulgarian newspapers immediately after the 9/11 attacks he told the journalist a similar story about his alleged meeting with Osama Bin Laden. He was interviewed buy Bulgarian security people. They came back to the press saying that the waste material from "Kozludui" is being transported to Russia on a regular basses and there is no way islamic extremist can get their hands on it.

1. If everybody in Bulgaria knows who this Mr. Ivanov is, why is his face hidden on the "documentary" and his voice altered? I would say special effects. The USA was informed about this guy right away it was in the papers. Even if they did not pay enough attention there is un US ambassador that probably follows the general news, and the story was a front page for couple of days.

2. The story as it was in the papers after 9/11 and the one portrayed in the "documentary" differ enough for me to speculate that Mr. Ivanov is looking for attention.

3. The guy has a nuclear war head buried in his mothers garden, but instead of selling the weapon sells a story?

If for a moment the Bulgarian authorities suspected that this guy is for real, they would dig not only his mothers garden but the whole neighborhood to find it. (But they don't suspect it they already checked him out and concluded that he is a dump communist era military officer and smart ones in our army was an exception. Believe me I know. I was drafted and observed those clowns for 2 years.) Second if there was chance for that story to be real a corrupt official could sell the thing and pocket the money or at list they can act as if they are doing their jobs and run for re-election based on the glory of stopping a nuclear weapon sale. On the other hand if any of the numerous mafias in Bulgaria domestic or foreign believed this guy they would be pulling Mr. Ivanov's nails out of the nail bed till he points where the war head is so they can put it on the market themselves. Reminder: the guy was in the news before and people can easily find him based on the construction of this rather expensive property that was shown in the "documentary". The bottom line is this guy is a story teller, maybe he met Osama for 3 minutes, maybe not, the rest is pretty much a talk. Believe me guys I like a good conspiracy as much as anybody but this is not it. Lets talk weather modification, lime disease... serious stuff.

One more point- no way in hell that the Russian and Bulgarian Military will dump anything but conventional weapons in Sliven. Bulgaria did not have Nuclear weapons even during the Cold War. I wish we did and I wish we do. We really need them having Turkey as our neighbor, but we don't. Besides there is enough corruption in the ex Eastern European Block, nobody will dump nuclear weapons for grabs. It's either sold or well protected for future deals.

Dear Mr. Griffin and Readers,
While I'm totally on track with Freedom Force's ideals and the anit-collectivist movement, I'm a bit dismayed that so much energy is being spent on "The Bow."

If bowing to anyone but Allah is forbidden in Islam (according to H.M.), then Obama must not be a Muslim, right? Those who think the "Islamofascists" are the primary threat to your liberty and safety may now rest assured that

our dictator is not a Muslim. (Should he genuflect on his right knee to Pope Benedict XVI, you can also rest assured that he is NOT a Catholic.) He bowed, and a Muslim would not have done that. Whatever Obama is, he is not a Muslim, then, by Islam's own protocols.

Maybe the bow was one of gratitude. Maybe it signified Obama's knowledge that Saudi Arabia trades her oil for U.S. treasury bills. Fiat paper for very useful oil. Who's the winner in this deal, huh? I would bow to the silly potentate who agreed to such a scam, too. I'd bow to his pet goat.

For many Eastern cultures, bowing is the equivalent of a handshake. Witness the Japanese and Chinese. Neither a handshake nor a bow signifies slavish subservience, simply cultural respect while in the house of another. When you are the guest, you honor the host. It's really just as simple as that. If any of your members invited me to his/her house for dinner and important discussions, I would not only bow, I would also present them with a bottle of wine, or some such small gift. It's called manners. I would not, however, scrub his toilets.
Enough about The Bow, already.
Linda June, 2009 Apr 18


Nice cartoon by Margulies. I guess I didn't expect to see that on your site. What about the vast number of Americans who have produced all thier life, haven't collected any government hand outs, and don't expect social security, medicare or medicaid to be there at retirement, even though they have unvolunteering contributed to the scam all their working life. Does that make you chuckle?
Dave, 2009 Apr 17


Good point, Dave. We placed the cartoon to emphasize that too many Americans want benefits galore but complain when the bill comes in. My message is that taxes are not too high; government is too big. The growing deficit is proof that we don’t collect enough in taxes to pay for the government we have. When people complain about high taxes without also calling for less government, they are not in the Reality Zone. The cartoon didn’t get all that across but was a start. Sorry you found it offensive.


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.

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.

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. (More)

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.

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.
Part 1: Life under Soviet Collectivism
Part 2: Propaganda and Mind Control
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)
