READER FROM AMSTERDAM DEFENDS GOVERNMENT-RUN HEALTH CARE
Dear Mr. Griffin,
Last year I wrote to you, expressing my admiration and gratitude for your book on Vitamin B-17. Ever since I receive Unfiltered News, of which the negative tenor sometimes surprises me, especially as to the health care reform. The Health Care Lies, mentioned in this Weekly are, I suspect, instilled into the public by the vested interests in the status quo, and unfortunately many are susceptible to getting upset without any control. But anyone who takes the trouble to read in extenso President Obama's speech for the Annual Conference of the AMA in June 09 must know better. Especially two items I 'd have expected to be welcomed by you, the first being: "taming" the Health Insurance Companies by creating real competition (in price, coverage and quality) by a government-run body, and the second: striving for more choice - even comprising complementary and alternative treatments.

Fear for government-agencies I can imagine, especially in your country, but so far Medicare seems to have won a much better reputation than the Insurance Companies. The complementary and alternative treatments are not yet heralded so far, understandably, but contacts between AAHF and the Administration seem promising.
In my opinion, massive support for this Health Care Reform, coupled with the demand for real health freedom would create the best chance for health freedom ever, whereas failure would close the door forever. With best regards, sincerely yours,
H.G. van der Waals, Amsterdam, 2009 Aug 19

REPLY FROM GEG

Hello Mr. van der Waals.
There is no doubt that insurance companies stand to lose sizable cash flow from a government-run health-care program, but there is much more to consider than that. The real issue is that concentration of power and money into the hands of any industry will tend to corrupt those who hold that power. This certainly is true of the insurance industry. However, there is far greater concentration of power and money into government and, I think you will agree that this inevitable generates the ultimate corruption. It is hard to think of any government agency that has not, from time to time, been exposed as being riddled with corruption and waste.

I am glad you are familiar with the story of Vitamin B-17 in the control of cancer, because that points up the central fact of which I speak. It is not the insurance industry that attacked natural cancer remedies but governments. Governments always fall prey to corporate predators that fund politicians to write laws to give them advantage over their competitors in the market place, and health care certainly is no exception. Therefore, My objection to government-run health care has nothing to do with the insurance industry. It is based on my conviction that, under socialized medicine, the quality of health care will go down, the cost will go up (paid for by taxes and inflation) and competition among practitioners will completely disappear. So will freedom-of-choice for patients. In other words, I believe that the rosy picture painted by the President is primarily propaganda to sell his program and is the opposite of what will actually materialize.
Thanks for writing.

STAGED OBAMA TOWN HALL MEETING IN MONTANA
by Sue Citizen Wells, 2009 August 18

By now you have probably heard that President Obama came to Montana last Friday. However, there are many things that the major news has not covered. I feel that since Joe and I live here and we were at the airport on Friday I should share some facts with you. Whatever you decide to do with the information is up to you. If you chose to share this email with others I do ask that you DELETE my email address before you forward this on.

On Wednesday, August 5th it was announced locally that the President would be coming here. There are many groups here that are against his healthcare and huge spending so those groups began talking and deciding on what they were going to do. The White House would not release ANY details other than the date.

On about Tuesday Joe found out that they would be holding the "Town Hall" at the airport. (This is only because Joe knows EVERYONE at the airport) Our airport is actually located outside of Belgrade (tiny town) in a very remote location. Nothing is around there. They chose to use a hangar that is the most remotely located hangar. You could not pick a more remote location, and you can not get to it easily. It is totally secluded from the public.
FYI: We have many areas in Belgrade and Bozeman which could have held a large amount of folks with sufficient parking. (gymnasiums/auditoriums). All of which have chairs and tables, and would not have to be SHIPPED IN!! $$$$

During the week, cargo by the TONS was being shipped in constantly. Airport employees could not believe how it just kept coming. Though it was our President coming several expressed how excessive it was, especially during a recession. $$$$$

Late Tuesday/early Wednesday the 12th, they said that tickets would be handed out on Thursday 9am at two locations and the president would be arriving around 12:30 Friday.

Thursday morning about 600 tickets were passed out. However, 1500 were printed at a Local printing shop per White House request. Hmmmm......900 tickets just DISAPPEARED.

This same morning someone called into the radio from the local UPS branch and said that THOUSANDS of Dollars of Lobster were shipped in for Obama. Montana has some of the best beef in the nation!!! And it would have been really wonderful to help out the local economy. Anyone heard of the Recession?? Just think...with all of the traveling the White House is doing. $$$$$ One can only imagine what else we are paying for.

On Friday Joe and I got out to the airport about 10:45am. The groups that wanted to protest Obama's spending and healthcare had gotten a permit to protest and that area was roped off. But that was not to be. A large bus carrying SEIU (Service Employees International Union) members drove up onto the area (illegal) and unloaded right there. It was quite a commotion and there were specifically 2 SEIU men trying to make trouble and start a fight. Police did get involved and arrested the one man but they said they did not have the manpower to remove the SEIU crowd.

The SEIU crowd was very organized and young. About 99% were under the age of 30 and they were not locals! They had bullhorns and PROFESSIONALLY made signs. Some even wore preprinted T-shirts. Oh, and Planned Parenthood folks were with them.....professing abortion rights with their T-shirts and preprinted signs. (BTW, all these folks did have a permit to protest in ANOTHER area)

Those against healthcare/spending moved away from the SEIU crowd to avoid confrontation. They were orderly and respectful. Even though SEIU kept coming over and walking through, continuing to be very intimidating and aggressive at the direction of the one SEIU man.

So we had Montana folks from ALL OVER the state with their homemade signs and their DOGS with homemade signs. We had cowboys, nurses, doctors you name it. There was even a guy from Texas who had been driving through. He found out about the occasion, went to the store, made a sign, and came to protest.

If you are wondering about the press.....Well, all of the major networks were over by that remote hangar I mentioned. They were conveniently parked on the other side of the buildings FAR away. None of these crowds were even visible to them. I have my doubts that they knew anything about the crowds.

We did have some local news media around us from this state and Idaho. Speaking of the local media...they were invited. However, all questions were to be turned into the White House in advance of the event. Wouldn't want anyone to have to think off the top of their head.

It was very obvious that it was meant to be totally controlled by the White House. Everything was orchestrated down to the last detail to make it appear that Montana is just crazy for Obama and government healthcare. Even those people that talked about their insurance woes........the White House called our local HRDC (Human Resource and Development Committee) and asked for names. Then the White House asked those folks to come. Smoke and mirrors...EVERYTHING was staged!!!!!!!!!!!

I am very dismayed about what I learned about our current White House. The amount of control and manipulation was unbelievable. I felt I was not living in the United States of America, more like the USSR!! I was physically nauseous. Joe and I have been around when Presidents or Heads of State visit. It has NEVER been like this. I am truly very frightened for our country. America needs your prayers and your voices. If you care about our country please get involved. Know the issues. And let Congress hear your voices again and again!! If they are willing to put forth so much effort to BULLY a small town one can only imagine what is going on in Washington DC. Scary!!

WHY IS THE MEDIA CREATING CARLEY FIORINA?
In California, the mainstream media is preparing us for the next election. I don't know that Barbara Boxer has anything to worry about, but just in case, the back-up candidate is being presented. I don't know how many articles I've already seen regarding Carly Fiorina, but there have been many. I know almost nothing about her. I feel that I don't NEED to know anything about her, because of all the free campaign coverage she's getting from the press. By the time the primaries come around, most other candidates will be virtual unknowns. Sample news item

HOPE THAT THERE IS SOME HUMANITY AMONG THE HEALTH CARE CORRUPTION
Greetings Mr. Griffin,
Thank you so much for responding. I couldn’t agree more regards fascistic corp./gov’t collusion. In fact, the horse has been out of the barn on that for a long time. And yes, the Republican/Democrat posturing is just Laputans and Blefuscues arguing over how to cook an egg. Perhaps naively, I believe that there is an element of humanity in the reform, (if there is anything we can “believe” about it), in that it would reign in the usurper insurance companies and provide medical services to those who otherwise have none. Granted, these people are probably the least healthy, and the most likely to abuse the system, but I refuse to let prejudice determine my final thought. Having been a “victim” of insurance company “abuse”, I can only hope easing the burden of the uninsured is the operative here.

The insurers are the middlemen, and a great tax on the entire process. And while it goes against the fascist model stated above, both the AMA and pharma would probably like to see them taken down a peg, therefore, more profits are not their sole motivation. And these are two titans battling on global stage in what is in actuality the remaining vestiges of a free market. I don’ think the AMA or pharma are scheming to kill grandma either, and one should be able to realistically and rationally be informed of the options.

Now, whether or not you want to view the reform as the beginning of the end, or the lynchpin to the “Final Solution”, which seems to be the impetus for all the hysteria, I can’t say, but I believe that to be the source of all the brouhaha. How much further down the slippery slope we’ll slide? Surely, we will pick up momentum. Strange though, how most of the rest of the world has been able to institute many of these proposals and no Pol Pot has emerged. No Joseph Stalin. Amazing how people in most of the rest of the world can drop in to get a few stitches, or some diagnosis without being herded into a concertina wired enclosure. Or, allowed to run up some fantastic emergency room bill which the taxpayer will be on the hook for anyway.

I work with and for a lot of selfish, fearful, greedy people, for whom the thought of easing the burden of another human being is anathema to all they strive for. Some of these people are extremely well off, but when it comes time to break out the medicare, they are the first in line. They too are against this measure. If for that reason alone, I have to support it. It is primarily the anti-humanist fundamentalists convulsing over the loss of their false hooded pap, along with their incurable paranoia, whipped into a frenzy by the masters of manipulation, Beck and Limbaugh, that has got everybody’s panties in a knot. I prefer rule by reason, over rule by fear.Thank you for your time.

HEALTHCARE BILL WILL CREATE A BUREAUCRATIC MONSTROSITY
I have browsed and read extensively the HR-3200 'Healthcare Bill'. Several major issues strike and astound me immediately. They are: (1) that this bill creates a monumental, unmanageable, monstrous administrative nightmare with its multiple organizational staffs and requirements, (2) the "Commissioner" throughout the bill is charged with issuing requirements, standards and practices for the staffs at his own discretion without limits, (3) seemingly unending and unlimited number of task units, and (4) no way can this bill be paid for in less than umpteen trillions of dollars and thousands or millions of additional federal employees.

I read the 'pdf' version of the bill. 'PDF' files have the feature of 'find'. To get a quick sense of the complication of 'HR-3200', search and read the surrounding text for the following words: Commissioner, exchange, administration, governance, division, appoint, establish, quality health benefits, ombudsman, community, departments, staff, units, secretary, office, training, title, subtitle, etc. These will support my contention that the bill is a nightmare.

The criteria for the bill states that it builds on the current healthcare system, but the bill replaces, not builds on, the current system. Can you visualize what the bill would foster when a person such as one of the current cast of czars becomes the "Commissioner"? Ghastly!

LET'S GET GRIFFIN ON THE HUCKABEE SHOW - NOT!
While the author has some good points, reminiscent of George Washington's thoughts that religion and morality were the two pillars of government, he is off base on Mike Huckabee.

In December, 2007, Judicial Watch published its list of the Ten Most Corrupt Politicians and Mike Huckabee made the list (www.judicialwatch.org/judicial-watch-announces-list-washington-s-ten-most-corrupt-politicians-2007). Huckabee had 14 charges of ethics violations filed against him. Huckabee had the hard drives of 83 computers destroyed, as well as the hard drives of 3 main servers destroyed (what did he want hidden from the public?). Someone had donated $90,000 worth of furniture to the Arkansas Governor's mansion and Huckabee claimed it was his. In addition, Huck and his wife went to Target at Christmas one year and registered as husband and wife; then told their employees that they could go to the site and choose gifts for them there. (Is this low-class or what?)

On December 27, 2007, Alan Stang, author extraordinaire, wrote a column in News With Views about Mike Huckabee entitled "Huck the Schmuck" (www.newswithviews.com/Stang/alan22.htm). Here Alan unveils the fact that Huck's staff said he lied about his "theology degree." Alan reveals that at a dinner meeting in 2004 of the Republican Governors Association, Huck mounted the stage to give the opening prayer and used the occasion instead, to make God the straight man in a Bob Newhart-type comedy routine. Huck, supposedly a man of the cloth, belongs to a musical group called "Capitol Offense." This group plays songs such as "Honky Tonk Woman," "Good Golly Miss Molly," and "Devil With The Blue Dress On." All these songs, and others, extoll drugs, alcohol, and illicit sex. If Huck were truly a "preacher," he would be trying to save these women instead of lauding their sins. Remember, too, that these songs have to be rehearsed over and over to get them right.

Huck must also be remembered for the fact that he wanted bigger taxes and to bring more illegal immigrants into Arkansas. When Arizona's Proposition 200 passed, Huckabee criticized it saying that it was "race baiting" and "demogaguery." One of the authors of Prop. 200, Senate Republican Jim Hold, is a Christian. Huckabee said that he (Huckabee) "drank a different kind of Jesus juice."

Before someone naively decides that "we have to trust someone" in the media, he/she should do a little more homework before picking on a man such as Huckabee. Huck was put on Faux News by the establishment elites to give him exposure. If Huck were nominated to be the Republican candidate in 2012 and wins, he could be manipulated easily by the elites. As Mr. Griffin has oft quoted from Prof. Carrol Quigley's book, "Tragedy and Hope," the election of Huckabee would be to "throw the rascals out," only to have more of the same, e.g., bigger government, higher taxes, less personal freedom, etc.

To have someone of the calibre of G. Edward Griffin on Huckabee's show would give credence to a man who doesn't deserve it and would be a great discredit to Mr. Griffin. As for me, I wouldn't give one red cent to such a [foolish] scheme.

READER SEES SOCIALIZED MEDICINE AS REFORM
I truly enjoy your “anti-establishment”, pro-libertarian newsletter. I also enjoy looking under the covers to find the endless corporate/militarist/pharma conspiracies that keep us locked in imperial wars, Enronesque scandals/bailouts and now possible forced inoculations. And that is why I find it perplexing, when proposals to cure one of the greatest usurpers of our personal well being, the medico/insurance/pharma cabal, is attacked as collectivist conspiracy. One contributor even suggests that the Health reform bill was lengthy and ponderous (and therefore “bad”) because it was written by lawyers. Imagine if it weren’t! Another article describes a Rovian tactic of impersonating a doctor. Seems the shoe is on the other foot now and the Republicans don’t like the fit.

I realize that the suggestion of circumscribing insurance and drug company profits for the benefit of the unwashed goes against the high-minded libertarian credo, but is there not a limit? Corporation socialism good/ public socialism bad? Is there something wrong with guaranteeing that your coverage will not be cancelled, or not denied? Is there something bad about keeping what you have and opting out? What makes these attempts at reform collectivist anyway? Because of more taxes? Because big medico might have a little competition? Fedex and UPS seem to be doing okay up against that powerhouse the Post Office; and taxes? It was during the cold war that taxes were at 70%! Talk about a double standard.

And this end of life issue – suddenly we have Death Panels! Oh for crying out loud! How can any thinking human fall for such inflammatory bombast and just plain lies? Where is the rationality? Ah, but they’ve taken out the “end of life provisions” in a “Hegelian” strategy! Lets, see, there is Hegelian dialectic, (which I bet 1 American in 10,000 couldn’t define (but are in dire need to)), Hegelian idealism, which even I struggle with, but Hegelian Strategy? Golly gee, sure sounds diabolic though. Whenever I see one side baiting an issue with pretentious slander, exaggeration and innuendo, in keeping with the Socratic admonition that people more easily believe lies than truth, I have to throw my hat into the ring of the reformers, and not the ring of those seeking to avoid reform.
James W., 2009 Aug 16

PUBLISHER'S RESPONSE:
Your objections are based on the assumption that socialized medicine would, somehow, be a blow against corporate control of medicine. The reality is that the corporations will RUN socialized medicine and receive most of the money that will flow from it. Just look at who is putting up the many millions of dollars to fund the new wave of pro-socialized-medicine TV ads. It is the pharmaceutical companies, the doctors’ union (called the AMA), the hospitals, and other corporate beneficiaries of the anticipated tax flow. This is NOT a Republican vs. Democrat thing. It’s a “corporate socialism” thing, which is the merger of corporations and government. The word for that is fascism. If you think that is the side of reform, I fear you are in for a great surprise.

ARE WE PAYING TO HAVE CHAVEZ POINT MISSILES DIRECTLY AT US?
Before I start, I would like to recognize who I am to the readers. I am Janice Williams, a woman born free on the land, born sovereign over her own person, born owing fealty to no artificial political entity! Born with an obligation to live and through Divine Guidance teach the truth!

I have read in a late e-mail that this Chavez is from another country. The oil is Chevron and the name is about to be changed to Petro something. The oil that we are purchasing is coming from this country is supporting Nuclear Weapons and they are pointing straight at us. This is why Chevron is changing there names. We are aware of what their oil is supporting and we need to stop buying it. Thank you for hearing me out.

TO THE AMERICAN STUDENT IN AUSTRALIA:
Have your class agree to socialistic grading. Everyone gets the same grade and it will be based on the average test score of each exam. See how many tests it takes for everyone to have a D or F because the lazy students will not have to study since they will get the same grade as the smart, hard working students who will pull up the average. The hard working students will realize after the first test that it is not worth the bother to study since the lazy parasitic students will get the same grade as they without even trying. No one will learn anything and everyone will fail, just like in a socialist society.

COLLECTIVISM TAUGHT IN AUSTRALIA
Dear Mr. Griffin,
This year, I enrolled for the Master of US Studies at the United States Studies Centre at the University of Sydney, pretty much to quench my curiosity as to what goes on at the centre, what's being taught in the course, and what direction the students lean. No surprises that most of these young Australians in the course lean towards collectivism, advocacy of massive tax hikes for middle to high income earners, groupthink solutions that give more deciding power to the state regarding terrorism and climate change, and even moulding the world towards totalitarianism if President Obama's heart desires it (the hero-worship towards him in this class has been creepy at best). One girl even said Australia should donate 5% of its GDP to foreign aid, and thought it would be a good thing if we were all taxed 100% of our income for the sake of funding all state-run programs to maximize peoples' reliance on government - my jaw dropped. I'm described as the token libertarian of the class simply because of my advocacy for limited government, freedom of speech and of the individual, as well as being vigilant and distrustful towards people in power, although my views are constantly looked down upon as "funny", theirs is just outright frightening. I was even accused of being a "Jew hater" because I brought up international bankers as a root cause of attacks on individual freedom.

This group claims to be very "pro-American", but I can't help but think they're just pro-Democrat simply because it's the non-Bush party, and is supposedly the party with a "superior moral claim" to race relations in America, so they feel that it is their prudent duty to take on socialist beliefs in economics to help out the needy minorities from low socio-economic backgrounds - I personally think my group in this class has been rick-rolled. I'm quite amazed they appointed me as Treasurer of the United States Studies Society, since my ideological perspective is so different from theirs as a whole.

Anyway, in one of our units this semester, we have US Economic Policy and Regulation. I told our lecturer that I'd "read Greider's Secrets of the Temple and Griffin's The Creature from Jekyll Island" (he was a bit shocked when I told him that I'd read Greider's book cover-to-cover). I'm always amused by this class how they constantly harp on how the US monetary system must be placed in the hands of "wiser men" (amazing, and I'm the only one who's read Greider!) if the Federal Reserve or the government isn't working properly, and in their language, that usually means it has to be taken away from those "evil right-wing conservatives" and into the hands of those "good natured left-wing liberals". This controlled opposition mentality is no more evident that what's displayed with our required reading, which is The Conscience of a Liberal: Reclaiming America From the Right by Paul Krugman, who is so extremely partisan in this book, that his purple-faced, foaming-at-the-mouth view of America is coloured by his false perception that the nation is actually "center-left" and the big, bad right-wing elites have been stopping America's "progression" into liberal utopian prosperity. It's like he's flirting with the right ideas, but he constantly uses incorrect labels that make his arguments confusing and piddly. I admit that I haven't finished reading the book yet, but so far, Krugman doesn't point out any useful solutions to America's financial problems, instead he's too busy painting a hyperbolic stereotype of the American Right, that there should be a "new New Deal" and that competition is one of the greatest sins of all simply because there are losers in such a system, and there needs to be an altruistic government to help them without question. He's probably the first writer and economist I've ever heard speak of the "welfare state" as something good - and this is the core text for the ecomomics class!

Another piece of hilarity lies in Krugman's introduction where he accuses Obama of attacking other Democrats in the primaries from both left and right perspectives, in my view, this was actually a good thing because it seemed at the time that Obama was objective and could see the good and the bad in these pointless debates and move on from the "left-right" paradigms, but Krugman spoke like he was indicting Obama for some sort of ideological betrayal, but he couldn't have been giddier when it's revealed Obama was just playing politics in the old reliable Machiavellian methodology.

No-one in my class has yet questioned the text, probably because it preaches to the choir, and they fit the bill perfectly, like good little foot soldiers. Some were even giddy enough to dance around after class like they were given a caffine rush because the lecturer just "had to be a liberal for prescribing that book! YAY!"

I'm very tempted to reference your book in some of the essays due this semester, because there are some topics that have cropped up during class that I think I can refute in the essays.

VACCINES; WHAT CDC DOCUMENTS AND SCIENCE REVEAL. by Dr. Sherri Tenpenny.
The Center for Disease Control is an ardent promoter of vaccines. Yet, from its own documents, we learn that vaccines are neither safe nor effective.

WORLD WITHOUT CANCER
The Story of Vitamin B17
by G. Edward Griffin.
Mr. Griffin marshals the evidence that cancer is a deficiency disease—like scurvy or pellagra—aggravated by the lack of an essential food compound in modern man’s diet. That substance is vitamin B17. In its purified form developed for cancer therapy, it is known as Laetrile. This story is not approved by orthodox medicine. The FDA, the AMA, and The American Cancer Society have labeled it fraud and quackery. Yet the evidence is clear that here, at last, is the final answer to the cancer riddle. Why has orthodox medicine waged war against this non drug approach? The author contends that the answer is to be found, not in science, but in politics—and is based upon the hidden economic and power agenda of those who dominate the medical establishment. This is is the most complete and authoritative treatise available on this topic. (More)

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)

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. 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)

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.
