COMIC STRIP ON THE FED
Hello Mr. Griffin.
I saw your "call for cartoons" in last weeks Unfiltered News, and realized I've been meaning to send you one of my comics for some time now. It was while researching this comic that I discovered The Creature From Jekyll Island and Freedom Force International.

Here are some pages:
http://www.ultraist.net/spyguy/preview/spudPg3.html

Your work heavily influenced the script and dialog contained within.
I even ran an add for your book in it.

HISTORIC SPEECH ON THE FED
Ed, I am sure you have seen this, but it needs redistribution frequently.

THE HAPPY FED
From: Vetrano Antonino, 2008 Sept. 22

The Happy Fed is making cole slaw
the Good-Times white house is making stew
all the usual smiling suspects are invited
except for good old me and you!

CREATURE HAS ANOTHER FAN
TO: Ed Griffin
I have read many a book on the federal reserve.....luckily a colleague of
mine suggested yours.....no other books cuts to the heart of the charade in
such a clear fashion. Anyone who read this book should not be wondering how the current "credit crisis" occurred. The book is the biggest "I told you so" for the current state of the financial system. Sadly most people have neither the time nor intelligence to comprehend that they are being conned.

A PATRIOT'S HEART
By Clifford Reid, 2008, Sept. 21

The red embers of dormant rage
Begin to glow softly with the winds of change.
It's always there... fires burning, emotions churning,
Flaring at times without warning
Leaving auditory victims bewildered-puzzled-
Not at the topic,
For the topic is the catalyst of the rage-
But at the unexpected violent passion
Which assaulted the enforced calm
Required for conventional discussion.
The Rage... subdued but always anxious
To burst, again, the weakening bonds of self restraint.
Restraint required for the conventional discussion,
The conventional imagery, the conventional life,
The conventional slave.

Remove thyself, iron hand of greed,
Thou enslaving corporate mass!
Thou hast enthroned thine pernicious paper heart
In the sacred halls of law,
Corrupting all you touch with greed,
All you meet with vanity,
And enslaving with efficiency
The flower of earth's humanity.

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

LIMERICK ON THE FED
The creature from Jekyll Island looms large,
Godzilla's nothing but a fire breathing barge.
As the Fed gobbles all in its path,
Go ahead and do the math;
Taxpayers minus zero on the credit charge.

Henry Barnes, 2008 Sept 19

SONG LYRICS TO "WE DIDN'T START THE FIRE"
Hello, Ed. On a whim, I wrote the following song's non-chorus aspects yesterday in about 15 minutes and set them to the tune of the 1989 Hit Song by Billy Joel. Enjoy!
Sincerely, Dr. Daniel Carr
St. Marys, PA, 2008 September 19

                              We Didn't Start the Fire
"Palin, pigs and lipstick, Barack Obama and his schtick: Change; REAL change from John McCain, invented the Blackberry - in-sane! Biden says you're a Patriot when you pay more taxes - Idiot!...

We didn't start the fire
It was always burning
Since the world's been turning
We didn't start the fire
No we didn't light it
But we tried to fight it

"Break the Bankey, Ben Bernanke; John Edwards and Hankey-Pankey; Stock Mark-et goes up and down, George Bush is a Circus Clown; Congress sits on its fat ass, nothing worthy does it pass. Poisons in our water supply; how many groceries can we buy?

(Repeat chorus)

"John McCain with 7 houses, fighting terror he epouses; Guilani: many spouses; Huckabee or Huckleberry? Doesn't matter whom you marry. Hilary took 2nd Place; wipe that frown off your face. 9/11 Case-closed but how much do we really know? Republicans and Democrats - the Consitution's where it's at"...

(Repeat chorus)

Schwarzeneggar still can't talk; gas too high so we must walk. Mitt Romney has perfect hair, doesn't really seem to care. Condoleezza, we don't need ya. Where is Cheney, sooo insaney! Why so many Hurricaneys?! Housing crisis, getting worse; will this be my final verse?"

(Repeat chorus)

Oh! Chinese Toys and lead paint; Bush a leader? No he ain't; Obama's not a Muslim but how much can we trust him? Blue Cross, Blue Shield, how much money do they steal?Dollar does a nose-dive; How we gonna stay alive? Send more troops and start more wars, I can't take it anymore!!!"

(Repeat chorus)

We didn't start the fire
But when we are gone
Will it still burn on, and on, and on, and on...

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

WHY DO WE LIKE POLITICIANS WHO PROMISE CHANGE?
And every day, I receive candidate-bashing cartoons, stupid, political one-liners about lipstick wearing pigs, hockey mom's, etc. C'mon folks!! Give it a rest!! Instead of bashing the crap out of one candidate while touting another & generally forcing your unsolicited opinions on others, think about this.....................

They ALL promise change. How about if they run on a promise of restoration rather than change. A restoration that would take us back in time to a place where things ran better, smoother and life was more enjoyable.

Change? That, in truth, is what they have been giving us all along.
We USED to have a strong dollar ... Politicians changed that.
Life USED to be sacred ... Politicians changed that.
Marriage USED to be sacred ... Politicians are changing that.
We USED to be respected around the world ... Politicians changed that.
We USED to have a manufacturing economy ... Politicians changed that.
We USED to have lower tax structures ... Politicians changed that.
We USED to enjoy more freedoms ... Politicians changed that.
We USED to be a large exporter of  goods ... Politicians changed that.
We USED to be an OPENLY Christian nation ... Politicians changed that.
We USED to teach patriotism in schools ... Politicians changed that.
We USED to educate children in schools ... Politicians changed that.
We USED to enjoy freedom of speech ... Politicians changed that.
We USED to ENFORCE LEGAL citizenship ... Politicians changed that.
We USED to have affordable food & gas ... Politicians changed that, too
. ... and one could go on and on with this list.

What hasn't been changed, politicians are promising to change that as well if you will elect them. When, oh WHEN, is America going to sit back with open eyes and look at what we once were and where we have come and say, enough is enough?

The trouble is, America's youthful voters today don't know of the great America that existed forty and fifty years ago. They see the world as if it has always existed as it is now.

When will we wake up? Tomorrow may be too late. When will America realize ... Politicians are what is wrong with America?

CHANGE....NO!!!! RESTORE.....YES!!!!

WHAT IF FANNIE/FREDDIE HAD NOT BEEN BAILED OUT?
Hi Ed. I'm just wondering if you could answer the following to our Freedom Force group. It would be interesting to hear your response.

What would have happened if Fannie/Freddie would not have been bailed out? My gut instinct tells me that due to the bailout, a copious amount of real-estate has been 'redistributed'.
Hyrum, 2008 Sept 17

Hello Hyrum.
That’s a good question, and I am sure that I do not have a complete answer, but certain things are clear. (1) The losses would be limited to foolish investors and corrupt institutions that promote these fraudulent investments instead of being spread over the entire population by means of inflation, and (2) the public would have learned an important lesson to the effect that government guarantees are a mirage. The result would be a great deal of suffering, an economy that can recover, and smarter investors. As it is, there is a great deal of suffering, an economy that is made even more sick, and investors who didn’t learn anything. In other words, the problems are made worse and perpetuated.

THE CREATURE FROM JEKYLL ISLAND; A SECOND LOOK AT THE FEDERAL RESERVE
by G. Edward Griffin
Where does money come from? Where does it go? Who makes it? The money magician's secrets are unveiled. Here is a close look at their mirrors and smoke machines, the pulleys, cogs, and wheels that create the grand illusion called money. A boring subject? Just wait. You'll be hooked in five minutes. It reads like a detective story – which it really is, but it's all true. This book is about the most blatant scam of history. (More)

THE FEDERAL RESERVE
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)

INVISIBLE BALLOTS;
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)

THE POLITICALLY INCORRECT GUIDE TO GLOBAL WARMING AND ENVIRONMENTALISM
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)

TORTURED IN RED CHINA
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)

HEALTH MYTHS EXPOSED

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)

WASHINGTON YOU'RE FIRED!
This documentary focuses on the growing police state in America and shows how the Bill of Rights and the Consti-tution literally have been cancelled by recent legislation and executive orders. With the next crisis, the President will have power to confiscate all private property including homes, cars, and money; all commercial property; all means of transportation; and can round us up into work brigades. Anyone who criticizes can be imprisoned without legal defense. Presidents now have more dictatorial power than King George had when Americans fought the Revolutionary War to rid them-selves of him. This program includes a plan for restoring the Constitution without armed revolution. (More)

UN-COUNTED
The New Math of American Elections.
This documentary shows how the elections of 2004 and 2006 were stolen and who did it. This is not a conspiracy theory. It’s the real thing! The people who perpetrated this fraud remain in place to do the same thing in 2008 – and every election thereafter. This has nothing to do with Republicans vs. Democrats. It is about controlling the electoral process so that the common citizen will never be able to break the grip of those who control both major parties. This grip CAN be broken, but only if more Americans become aware that it exists. That’s where you come in. Acquire this video and show it to your friends. (More)

THE LATE GREAT U.S.A. The Coming Merger with Mexico and Canada. Late Great USAWhile many people are still clinging to the belief that The U.S.will never give up its sovereignty, the process already is far advanced. This is not just a super highway between Mexico and Canada, but a total political, economic, and military merger into what will be called the North American Union, identical to the creation of the EU. Here are the chilling details of a plan being implemented largely behind closed doors by global elitists to terminate the United States. (More)
