THE HAIRCUT
2010 Apr 8 from Georgette Bales
One day a florist goes to a barber for a haircut. After the cut he
asked about his bill and the barber replies, 'I cannot accept money from you. I'm doing community service this week.' The florist was pleased and left the shop. When the barber goes to open his shop the next morning there is a 'thank you' card and a dozen roses waiting for him at his door.

Later, a cop comes in for a haircut, and when he tries to pay his
bill, the barber again replies, 'I cannot accept money from you. I'm doing community service this week.' The cop is happy and leaves the shop. The next morning when the barber goes to open up there is a 'thank you' card and a dozen donuts waiting for him at his door.

Later that day, a businessman comes in for a haircut, and when he tries to pay his bill, the barber again replies, 'I cannot accept money from you. I'm doing community service this week.' The businessman is very happy and leaves the shop. The next morning when the barber opens his shop, there is a 'thank you' card and a dozen different books, such as 'How to Improve Your Business' and 'Becoming More Successful.

Then, a politician comes in for a haircut, and when he goes to pay his bill, the barber again replies, 'I cannot accept money from you. I'm doing community service this week.' The politician is very happy and leaves the shop. The next morning, when the barber goes to open up, there are a dozen politicians lined up waiting for a free haircut.

And that, my friends, illustrates the fundamental difference between
the citizens of our country and the members of our government. Vote carefully.

A DIM VIEW FROM CANADA
Posted 2010 Apr 3 from Rick
Hello Ed;
I am an American/Canadian who has for most of his life lived in Canada. I am having a difficult time understanding why there is such an to-do about a Government sponsored health program. I do not consider myself a liberal and at the same time I also do not consider myself a conservative. If I was living in the US I would have a difficult time choosing between the Republicans and the Democrats because frankly I think they are both full of crap.

Although there are some problems with the Canadian health care system, it is in my opinion far superior to what you have south of the 49th or will have. ... There is a lot of ranting and raving going on about collectivism and globalism but what is your alternative? What system would you put in place? I hear a lot of critism but very little in the way of alternatives.

Do you really think you can turn back the clock? Do you think that the few who run the planet are going to just go away? They don't care at all what system you put in place as long as they get to stay in their place; at the top and they will stop at nothing until their agenda is fulfilled.

Can the USA afford health care? Of course not. Can it afford to maintain its place at the top of the pile militarily? I don't believe it can. The USA is broke. Most Americans are so broke they can't pay attention unless it's to the garbage that's fed to them on the major networks on their television.

Nothing is really going to change. More money will be printed, the people will go further in debt, the banksters will get richer; the only ones who actually might see some real tangible loss is the insurance companies by being forced to accept policies that are riskier than what they are used to.

A POWERFUL LETTER CAN MAKE A DIFFERENCE
Posted 2010 Apr 1 from Wesley W. Hoyt
Dear Mr. Griffin:
I was pleased to find your organization which fits my beliefs as an individualist. I just joined as a charter member tonight.

Below is a letter I wrote about a incident in Boulder, Colo. this February. As shocking as this is, we are seeing more and more direct acts by the collectivits who value not the liberty of the individual. My letter of protest, along with others, achieved the goal: The false charges were dismissed, and the Boulder City Council appologized.

The fact that such an incident occurred is proof of the degree of movement toward totalitarian control. As you state, new leaders need to be elected. My letter to the editor of the Boulder Camera, which was circulated to the member of the Boulder City Council follows:

Boulder Resident Shocked by Police State Tactics
Sixty-one years ago I was born in Colorado then graduated from CU Boulder. I also have a law degree and have fought against injustice my entire career. Never have I seen such a gross violation of civil liberties as demonstrated at Monday’s Boulder City Council meeting.(
The photo and article show one of Boulder’s finest arresting a speaker (in handcuffs) who was interrupted in mid-sentence at an open Council meeting where he had been given permission to speak. No wonder people are flying airplanes into buildings! IS ANYBODY PAYING ATTENTION?

While I do not agree with Seth Bingham’s politics, as they say: “I would defend to the death his right to say it.” It was revealed that Councilman George Karakehian simply motioned his finger to the officer, Gestapo style, and Bingham was hauled off. What is equally disgusting is that a member of Council scratched a microphone as Bingham was speaking which drowned out his words. So much for freedom of speech!

This is (or should be) the “shot heard ‘round the world.” How could it be that, in Boulder, that bastion of freedom, Bingham was taken as a political prisoner. Should he apply for political asylum to Vladimir Putin? It seems the Russians are more tolerant of political speech these days than the ‘Good Ole USA.’ Where can a person turn who is being politically persecuted if not America?

When the Boulder City Council arranges for one of its citizens to be arrested at the very forum created for open public debate, they are definitely applying police state tactics; not to mention entrapment. You out there, the other members of the public, don’t you get it? If they do this to Seth, they can do it to you. What were they thinking?

Well, every student and professor in the Law School, the Journalism School and the Political Science department at CU should be marching on City Council to protest this tyranny; before it is too late.
The Boulder Council, the police and the prosecuting attorney all need to apologize to Bingham and to the public for their gross misconduct. If not, it will demonstrate that the precious gift of civil liberty given to us by our ancestors means nothing to them.

A REPUBLIC ALSO TEMPORARY?
2010 Apr 5 from Grace, grace2@tampabay.rr.com
.... And a republic is temporary because it only exists until the time, that Congress discovers they can get generous gifts from special interests, who are willing to buy their votes on legislation. I'd rather vote on the issues myself, thank you. (and we would still have to trust those who are counting the votes).

HOW MUCH TYRANNY CAN WE TAKE?
Posted 2010 Apr 2 from Mike Vincent, Aggravated Patriot
I am so sick and tired of this administration calling people in the tea parties terrorists. Obama and his followers are the ones destroying this great country. After stepping on and ignoring the US Constitution, this bunch of criminals which have forced this healthcare bill down the American peoples' throat and have done nothing good for this nation. If there are so many people appose to this healthcare bill. Where in the hell are they, and what are they doing to stop this Hitlerian horrible bill? Why is there nothing being done to get this usurper fraud out of office and thrown out of this country, if he is not an American born citizen? How much tyranny are we suppose to take?

READER SAYS JESSE VENTURA NOT INFORMED ON HEALTHCARE BILL
Posted 2010 April 1 from Patrick A. Parish
Dear Mr. Griffin,
I'm responding to the article in Unfiltered news about Jesse Ventura voicing support for the Gov't Healthcare bill. I did watch the video personally, and I'm not convinced that Mr. Ventura was addressing the actual bill or that he's actually aware of what has been written into the bill.

I could be entirely wrong about this, however what I heard him voice his support for is the health care that the veterans of the military, and the government officials recieve being afforded to all. Unfortunately, that type of health care is NOT what is supported for everyone in the healthcare bill, and is likely not to be the outcome in the foreseeable future of any future legislations for the health care bill.

I sincerely hope and currently chose to believe that Mr. Ventura's voiced support was based more on a misunderstanding of the text of the bill, and relating it perhaps to his own experience with the health care provided to himself than that of having actually read the bill. It is confusing that he should be ignorant of the text and nature of the bill, especially in light of his connection with people such as Alex Jones, but in consideration of his last interview with Alex, where he mentioned working fervently on an upcoming TV series, I think it is possible that he simply may not have had time to read the bill.

              ==================================

HOW MUCH TIME IS LEFT FOR AMERICA?
2010 Mar 31 from Americanism Educational League
About the time the original thirteen states adopted their new constitution in 1787, Alexander Tyler, a Scottish history professor at the University of Edenburgh, had this to say about the fall of the Athenian Republic some 2,000 years earlier:

"A democracy is always temporary in nature - it simply cannot exist as a permanent form of government. A democracy will continue to exist up until the time that voters discover that they can vote themselves generous gifts from the public treasury. From that moment on, the majority always vote for the candidates who promise the most benefits from the public treasury, with the result that every democracy will finally collapse due to loose fiscal policy - usually followed by a dictatorship."

SMART METERS WILL BRING MORE GOVERNMENT CONTROL
2010 Mar 31 from Clark Thurlo
My natural gas utility company has already installed one of these new “smart meters” on my house here in California. My electrical service is scheduled to get one soon. I received a brochure in the mail, which expounds the wonders and advantages of this new technology. One section reads, “Accurately track which appliances or other equipment are costing you the most. Then make changes, at your discretion, to help make your home more energy efficient.” Of course, this is exactly how they’re ushering in government control over the temperature in your home. The smart meters allow your utility company to individually control your appliances. Initially, the control is in the hands of the home owner. Then the inevitable rolling black-outs and brown-outs appear, followed by permanent limits on the amount of time you can run your heater or A/C. Obama had referred to this during his campaign, something along the lines of “we won’t be able to keep our thermostats at 72 degrees anymore.” How long until reality surpasses the imagination of George Orwell?

WHAT COULD POSSIBLY GO WRONG?
2010 Mar 26 from "Maxine"
Let me get this straight. We're going to be gifted with a health care plan written by a committee whose chairman says he doesn't understand it, passed by a Congress that hasn't read it but exempts themselves from it, to be signed by a president who also hasn't read it and who smokes, with funding administered by a treasury chief who didn't pay his taxes, to be overseen by a surgeon general who is obese, and financed by a country that's broke. What could possibly go wrong?

MAO DID NOT LIVE LIKE AN EMPEROR
2010 Mar 26 from James Chu
Dear Ed,
In your reply to the comment "DOWN WITH CAPITALISM - BUT WHAT KIND?", you made a statement that "Dictators like Hitler and Mussolini and Stalin and Mao have lived like emperors because they control the wealth and means of production". If you care to read this book by the private physician of Mao while he was alive
(http://www.amazon.com/Private-Life-Chairman-Mao/dp/0679764437) you will notice that Mao only lived in a small one bedroom apartment inside a large government complex while he was the chairman of China. He did not own any properties such as houses or automobile or collectibles. He was paid a small salary just like any other government workers at that time. He had no servant other than one who cooked for him and several security guards. He did not live in a palace like a king. For the sake of accuracy in your publication, I thought you might want to make this correction.

              ==================================

WHAT ABOUT A PRE-EMPTIVE STRIKE BY ISRAEL?
2010 Mar 24 from R.M.
Dear Mr. Griffin,
I read recently The Creature From Jekyll Island, and it was a wild ride. I actually agreed with all of your premises prior to reading the book, but it reinforced my beliefs and shed light on many details.

On your website, in the section about the symbol, you state that you agree with all of Ron Paul's ideas about war. In January of 09, Ron Paul stated in a video that he made, that Israel entering Gaza was a sad day for the world because it was a victory for "pre-emptive war". Then he further stated that Israel had placed the Palestinians [sic] in a "virtual concentration camp" in Gaza.

Now, I am opposed to the Israeli leadership, as it is in bed with the globalists, and I am trying to bring real leadership to Israel. I was carried off a roof in Gaza in 2005 in protest of Ariel Sharon's Expulsion of 10,000 Jews from their homes for the crime of being Jewish. But Ron Paul missed one fact: The Arabs in Gaza had fired approximately 9,000 rockets into Israel during the 8 years prior to Israel militarily entering Gaza last January. These rockets brought with them the deaths and maimings that artillery bring, of course. And the only reaction by Israel was to high tail it out of Gaza in 05, which didn't stop any of the missiles/rockets. Do you agree with Mr. Paul that this was a pre-emptive war, and that Israel was wrong? And that Israel had put the Arabs in a concentration camp?

I was actually against Israel's incursion last year into Gaza because I knew that the IDF would just go in for a few days, do nothing, and then leave, and surely soldiers would die for nothing. I wanted Israel to go in and actually win and re-take Gaza (which is in the Land of Israel as delineated in numerous places in the Torah) and settle it thoroughly with Jews. To me, the only choices for Mr. Paul's words are that he is either completely ignorant about Israel, or that he's an anti-Semite. Of course, it could be both. What do you think? As someone I greatly respect because of your work, I look forward to your response.

GEG'S REPLY:
Hello R.M..
This will have to be brief, but my honest answer is that, like many people depending on the mainstream media for news about the Israeli-Palestinian conflict, I really don’t know what to believe. I smell the strong stench of propaganda coming from both sides, but that is not sufficient to form an opinion about the question you ask.

Incidentally, I believe that pre-emptive strikes ARE justified IF the information of an imminent strike from an enemy is accurate. If we knew for sure that a group or nation really was going to attack us, it would be stupid to sit idly by and wait for the blow before we take action. If I knew for certain that an intruder in my home was intending to murder my family and me, I would do everything I could to overpower him first without waiting for him to take the final action. The problem is that, in modern times, the claim of imminent danger from a national enemy seldom has been true. More often than not, it has been merely propaganda to justify what was planned all along as an aggressive first strike. To what extent this ploy is being used in the current conflict is unclear to me; hence, I am unable to give you the answer you seek. In time, however, the facts themselves will determine my ultimate position. Thanks for writing.

DOWN WITH CAPITALISM - BUT WHAT KIND?
Posted 010 Mar 21 from Dasa Vinayaga
Dear Ed:
Let us be clear. Our capitalistic system is working just as it should. Consider three of its basic principles: 1. Buyer beware 2. All the market can bear 3. Profit motive. We learned these from grade school on. We honor them and those who master them. How the wealthy got all that money is not an issue. We do not ask if they are using it for the benefit of others. Nor is their character or behavior of any particular importance.

Please note that these three fundamentals of capitalism have not a trace of morality, ethics or humanity in them. They are a perfect expression of predatory philosophy. Therefore, we should not whine when our capitalistic system does exactly what it is designed to do: extract as much profit from the willing and unsuspecting, the unsophisticated and uneducated, the easily manipulated, etc.

Capitalism is amoral. That is why we are constantly trying to find ways to regulate and control it, but never succeed. It is why we are OK with profiting from illness and misfortune, addictive additives and stimulants in our foods and beverages, usury, false and deceptive advertising and the creation of exotic financial paper that produces nothing and defrauds the entire planet, to name a few. We have accepted a predatory philosophy as our economic way of life. All our protests and attempts to reign it in are insincere and cosmetic, like the addict blustering about swearing off his habit. The entire financial and economic structure must be replaced with one that recognizes us as beings of compassion and responsibility.

Even in the jungle there is a natural balance between predator and prey. In capitalism, there are no limits. We are free to consume ourselves (including our future offspring), and our planet so that unlimited and unconscionable profits may be accrued by the few. This process became alarmingly obvious in 2008. We do not have the natural sense of balance of the natural world. We are destroying our very species in the mindless pursuit of profit. Reflect, brothers and sisters. There is nothing noble or admirable in the capitalistic system we have created. It isn't even sensible. Let us create something better.

GEG'S REPLY:
Hello Dasa.

I regret that I do not have time to craft the kind of quality response your letter deserves, but the essence of what I would try to say is that your definition of capitalism is unique and not at all universally accepted. In fact, you have not defined capitalism at all. You merely have ascribed to it three rather ugly human traits. Those traits can be found with equal ease in any economic system, including socialism, communism, fascism, and any other variant of collectivism. Those who advocate these so-called social-uplift systems, once they get their hands on the power of the state, quickly abandon their lofty ideals and become the epitome of greed and ruthlessness.

Capitalism is defined as a system in which property and the means of production are in private hands as opposed to being in the hands of those who represent the state; but that is a mythical distinction in the real world. Ownership is meaningless. Control is what is important. In a free society, citizens who create the means of production are the ones who own it and, therefore, control it. In a collectivist system, politicians and the rulers are the ones who control it even though they do not own it. Dictators like Hitler and Mussolini and Stalin and Mao have lived like emperors because they control the wealth and means of production. Under a collectivist system, the people are told that they own it, but that is a nonsensical fairy tale to keep them content with the fact that they own nothing - not even their own lives.

The problem with trying to pin the trait of greed exclusively on capitalism is that the word capitalism is incomplete by itself. The question is: what KIND of capitalism? There are two kinds: COMPETITIVE capitalism and MONOPOLY capitalism. Competitive capitalism is what made America great and produced one of the highest levels of personal freedom and prosperity the world has ever seen. But, ever since the Wilson Administration, America has evolved into monopoly capitalism in which competition has been replaced by government regulation and favoritism for wealthy corporate lobbyists. You are calling for an end to capitalism, but competitive capitalism has been dead in America for over 100 years.

We would be a lot better off to dump such words as capitalism, socialism, fascism, and so forth and get right to the heart of the matter, which is that all these corrupted systems are merely variants of collectivism. All the ills you mention are nourished by collectivism. What the world needs now is an awakening to this reality and a return to the principles of individualism that were enshrined in the American Constitution. Thanks for writing – and thanks for caring.

A NEW AMERICA. As America staggers from government control and corruption, politicians in both major parties are calling for a “new” America. This DVD shows that what they propose is not new but a continuation of the programs of their predecessors, the same programs that created the present crisis. These politicians refer to themselves as “Progressives,” but their ideology is indistinguishable from Socialism, Communism, Nazism, or Fascism. The generic name for all these variants is Collectivism. This is an impressive production covering a massive political landscape. It should be studied by all serious students of political history and current events. It includes the testimony of G. Edward Griffin. (More)


REMOVE CHLORINE FROM YOUR SHOWER
It is common for health-conscious families to install chlorine-removal filters in their kitchens, but it has been estimated that we absorb more chlorine through our skin when taking a bath than we ever could from drinking water. That is because the body's skin surface is larger than the intestinal surface and because the lungs, too, are very efficient absorbers, and we inhale a substantial amount of chlorine gas while bathing. Benefits of de-chlorinated water are healthier, younger looking skin; softer, more manageable hair; less fading of color-treated hair; relief from dry skin and scalp; and better lathering. Removes 90% or more of chlorine. (More)


BLUEPRINT FOR TRUTH
Architects and engineers challenge the official version of building collapse on 9/11

Richard Gage, founder of Architects & Engineers for 9/11 Truth, presents the findings of 130 design and construction professionals who have concluded that the collapse of the Twin Towers and Building 7 could not have been caused by fire, and that the so-called “pancake theory” (of one floor falling on the one below it, causing it, also, to break loose and fall on the next floor and the next – yet doing so at the same speed to the ground as they would if there were no resistance to slow them down) is contrary to the laws of physics. Their conclusion? Only a controlled demolition, which severs supporting columns at their base, can cause a building to collapse in such free-fall fashion. There is, of course, much more. Some of this information has been available previously in bits and dabs, but this is the first time all of it has been assembled into a single, coherent presentation. Skeptics may dismiss one or two of these issues as mere anomalies; but, when they all are considered together, only a person in deep denial could reject them all. See the evidence and judge for yourself. DVD (More)



GLOBAL WARMING
AND GLOBAL FEUDALISM
A discourse by G. Edward Griffin
Without notes or preparation, Griffin fields questions about the United Nations, global warming, and how these topics are tied together. Here are some of the issues covered:
Is the UN our last best hope for peace or the foundation for global feudalism? Is the UN controlled by leaders of nations or by hidden structures and power brokers? If the latter, who are they? Are American elitists motivated by love of country, desire for international harmony, or something less admirable? Is it possible to get out of the UN, or have we passed the point of no return? With regard to global warming, what is Agenda 21? Is forced population-control justified to save the planet? Is the UN's report on global warming based on valid science? If not, then what? If the mission of the World Health Organization is not world health, then what? What are the IMF and World Bank and why should anyone care about them? What is the Freedom Force strategy for reversing the trend toward global feudalism? (More)


Silver Lungs

 
FALL OF THE REPUBLIC

The presidency of Barack H. Obama. This program is about America’s economic/political decline at the hands of global elitists who now dominate its government, media, banking system, and major political parties. If we are to break the grip of this cabal, the American people must know who these people are and how they operate. This program has excellent production value and will keep you riveted. However, its primary value is, not as entertainment, but as an encyclopedia of facts and insights needed for realistic action to RESTORE the Republic once again. DVD (More)


THE MARKETING OF MADNESS
Are We All Insane?
Psychotropic drugging now is a mega-profit industry based on a venture between psychiatrists and drug companies. This documentary shows how modern psychiatry has been built on pseudo science, fraudulent research, and slick marketing campaigns. The goal of these hucksters is to convince everyone that they are mentally ill in some way and, therefore, need to be on mind-altering drugs for the whole of their lives. Here are the facts you need to protect yourself and family from one of the most outrageous and deadly hoaxes of all time. DVD (More)


Over-The-Counter Natural Cures
by “The People’s Chemist”, Shane Ellison, M.S.
A former chemist for Big Pharma tells how drugs are highly toxic and, in many cases, cause greater illness than they alleviate. But the nutritional supplements sold in health-food stores also are manufactured by pharmaceutical companies and are not the “natural” products we assume they are. Synthetic vitamins may be chemically similar to those in nature but they are devoid of the co-factors found in the natural state, and that means that vitamins in a pill are far less effective than in foods and herbs. This led Ellison to examine thousands of natural sources, to identify those that are loaded with complete nutrition. In the process, he found some that can produce astounding reversals of such chronic diseases as obesity, diabetes, heart disease, and even cancer – all for under $10 for a 30-day supply. This book could save you thousands of dollars and may even save your life. (More)


Money by The Mouthful;

Have healthy teeth and never need to visit a dentist again.
Dr. Robert Nara is a most unusual dentist. He tells people how to have healthy teeth and gums with no need to visit a dentist ever again. He shows how a simple dental hygiene program using hot salt water applied with a dental irrigator can kill bacteria that cause dental caries and gum deterioration. In the absence of that bacteria, teeth actually can re-mineralize and gums will heal. This has led Dr. Nara into great disfavor with the dentist's union called the American Dental Association. Why? As Nara explains, it's all about money. 58 min. audio CD. (More)


THE NEW AMERICAN CENTURY
The Secret Plan for World Domination.
This documentary provides the missing link for the truth about 9/11. The missing link is MOTIVE. If you cannot imagine why anyone would want to cover up essential evidence, then wonder no more. Taken from the words of the plotters themselves, you will come to understand that a terrorist attack was exactly what they hoped for to justify a massive military incursion into the Middle East, all of which was planned long before 9/11. You will witness decades of maneuvering for the control of oil and gas resources and see, first hand, incredible war profits on a scale much greater than ever before in history. Even if you are familiar with some of these events, this is the first time all of them have been brought together in one place. (More)

GLOBAL WARMING;
THE EMERGING SCIENCE
AND UNDERSTANDING
This DVD is an antidote to Gore’s Inconvenient Truth. Designed for the classroom, it is divided into three lessons based on statements by internationally recognized climate scientists covering such topics as climate change in history; data errors in computer models; the impact on global temperature by cosmic rays, solar flares, and cloud formation; the truth about melting ice caps and flooding; and the benefits of increased CO2 levels. It also shows the corruption of science by the United Nations IGPCC which, although advertised as a scientific body, is a political body that requires the scientists it employs to alter their findings to support pre-determined conclusions.

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

G. Edward Griffin
marshals evidence that cancer is a deficiency disease, like scurvy or pellagra, caused by the lack of an essential food factor 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 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)


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)
 

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)
 

UNSTOPPABLE GLOBAL WARMING (EVERY 1500 YEARS)
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)
 

THE GREAT GLOBAL WARMING SWINDLE
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 industrial-ization was increasing at its greatest rate, temperatures went down. (More)
 

THE FEDERAL RESERVE
A Discourse by G. Edward Griffin

The author of The Creature from Jekyll Island; A Second Look at the Federal Reserve addresses 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)
 

THE DANGEROUS SERVANT;

A Discourse on Government by
G. Edward Griffin
“Government is not reason. It is not eloquence. It is force. Like fire, a dangerous servant and a fearful master.” – George Washington
G. Edward Griffin answers 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 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)
