WILL THE U.S. GOVERNMENT AGAIN CONFISCATE PRIVATELY HELD GOLD? This notice, which was placed in post offices in 1933 is a bitter reminder that it could happen again. If you click on the image, you can read an enlarged copy and see for yourself that, the last time America faced a financial crisis, the President declared a national emergency and ordered all citizens to turn in their gold coins, gold bullion, and gold certificates (paper notes backed by gold). The only exceptions were coins that were perceived to have significant collector's value. Many coin dealers today point to this fact as a reason to purchase numismatic coins instead of what they call bullion coins. This is a reasonable precaution but it comes with a significant price tag, because one must pay for collectors' value in addition to gold value and, if they are ever needed as barter for necessities, it is doubtful that the common man would appreciate their collector's value. In times of crisis, gold weight is what matters most. Also, there is the possibility that gold coins will not be confiscated at all, inasmuch as so few of them are in private hands today compared to 1933. At that time gold, literally, was money, and a significant proportion of the population held them. We mention this, not because we think we are smart enough to know what will happen and to make a recommendation one way or the other, but because we feel that Reality Zonedwellers should have as much knowledge about these issues as possible so they can make informed decisions for themselves.

WHO IS COUNTING THOSE COFFINS?
Someone needs to address the facts. If there have been 4400 casualties in Iraq and 2100 in Afghanistan, why have more than 16,000 coffins been shipped home with strict enforcement of "rules" barring filming or tracking of the coffins and 19 different contractors used for the transportation? Are they lying about US Casualties, or have the coffins been used for the CIA dope trafficking operations, with the $$$$ going to the Bush / Clinton crime syndicates? Someone should openly address this to Obama, our new Commander-in-chief, who espouses "Transparency". I have asked the religious TV personalities to address the issue, but they will not touch it.

STUDENT TEACHER CONDUCTS CLASS BASED ON CREATURE FROM JEKYLL ISLAND
Dear Mr. Griffin,
My cousin, Benjamin Lertola, goes to Carnegie Mellon University where students can create and teach their own classes. Last year I gave him a copy of your book, "The Creature from Jekyll Island" and I just found out that this semester he is teaching a class on it. Apparently the class generated a lot of interest, because he has over two dozen students in it. Just thought you would like to know.

REPLY: Indeed, I am delighted to know about this. The thirst for truth will never be quenched.

STIMULUS CRIMULUS
The "Stimulus" and earlier "Bailout" measures are nothing more than a "taking" of the people's credit [money] and handing that all over to the Big Banks and corporations. --WITHOUT GETTING A SINGLE THING FOR THE PEOPLE IN RETURN FOR THESE PAY-INS. It's larceny. Pure and simple. Very large.

And worse: These bills are literally thousands of pages in length, that no one in congress has read. Nor did Congress or Obama write them. They were written by lobbyists for the recipients of these funds. The bills contain hundreds of complex provisions all designed to tighten controls over we the people by leaps and bounds. You are literally seeing here in these measures the architechture of the coming police state, under construction. Nothing less. And there is nothing left out there, that can stop it, save you and me.

"Members of Congress should be made to wear coveralls like NASCAR drivers so we can identify their corporate sponsors."

FROM "THE GULAG ARCHIPELAGO" (1973 by Aleksandr Solzhenitsyn) ON HOW TO RESIST MASS ARREST.

"During an arrest, you think since you aren’t guilty, how can they arrest you? Why should you run away? And how can you resist right then? After all, you’ll only make your situation worse; you’ll make it more difficult for them to sort out the mistake.

"And how we burned in the camps later, thinking: What would things have been like if every Security operative, when he went out at night to make an arrest, had been uncertain whether he would return alive and had to say goodbye to his family?

"Or if, during periods of mass arrests, as for example in Leningrad, when they arrested a quarter of the entire city, people had not simply sat there in their lairs, paling with terror at every bang of the downstairs door and at every step on the staircase, but had understood they had nothing left to lose and had boldly set up in the downstairs hall an ambush of half a dozen people with axes, hammers, pokers, or whatever else was at hand?

The Organs [government agencies] would very quickly have suffered a shortage of officers and transport and, notwithstanding all of Stalin’s thirst, the cursed machine would have ground to a halt! We didn’t love freedom enough. Every man always has handy a dozen glib little reasons why he is right not to sacrifice himself."

COURTESY VS. SAFETY
I am nearing 60 years now. As I have been reflecting over my own personal past, how I was raised, and what values my parents and school thought worthy of teaching children, my attention centers on two words. One word was a goal and role model for society when I was young, and the other is a significant icon for today's arrogantly selfish social climate. These are important words which ring two different messages, though without reflection and analysis of changing personal values over a long period of our propagandized population, the subtle direction changes involving individual personal paradigms on a mass scale of adopting one word over the other can easily go completely unnoticed.

The two words I'm referring to are: Courtesy and Safety.
As a youth my parents and grade school taught that "courtesy" was our most important attitude. Today, parents, schools, and media are centered on "safety."

Since courtesy involves habitually caring for, and thinking of other individuals than ourselves, the concept of "safety" is inherent within the context of "courtesy." But "safety" by itself, is narrowly focused and diabolically selfish. The word "safety," as used in our current social rhetoric, can even extend, and most often does, to completely exclude courteous behavior from our thoughts and actions.

Though this observation may seem irrelevant, I believe propaganda is at work, here, to continue to drive people apart. I believe it is extremely important for the citizens of this once great country to care for one another over and above religous beliefs, and other unnecessary quarrels. In truth, caring for each other is the only true way to regain our freedom and make this country great once again. As long as we are bickering and argueing and allowing the propagandists to sway our loyalties away from our constitution, we will never regain our freedom.

Thanks for the opportunity to express my views.

REGARDING NEWS THAT 8 STATES HAVE DECLARED THEY WILL REFUSE TO HONOR UNCONSTITUTIONAL FEDERAL LAWS - AND COMMENT ON 2ND AMENDMENT
From Ron Avery. Posted 2009 Feb 5

So far Arizona and Washington legislative resolutions just tell the feds to stop doing what they have no authority to do. They do not tell the feds exactly what it is that is unconstitutional. This is fatal error in the resolution. New Hampshire tells the feds exactly what laws they have made that are unlawful and void which they will not comply with and that such laws if not already if pursued further will dissolve the union. NH wins so far!

The Montana resolution to the US is stupid. The fed 2nd Amendment protects all firearms not just guns able to be carried by one man with a bore less than 1.5 inches. It is clear that the people have a right to keep and bear arms for the defense of the state and citizens thereof from the federal and state governments that violate the constitution. Those firearms consist of all weapons that would be used in the state militias including jets, rockets, mortars, missiles, Vulcan electric guns, tanks, cannons and nuclear devices. The rule is if the government has it the people should keep it and bear it. It's just too bad that the government went and developed all that stuff. Now we get to carry it around and scare them with it. I didn't make this up this comes from the mouth of Alexander Hamilton in the federalist letters to which no one argued:

"But though the scheme of disciplining the whole nation must be abandoned as mischievous or impracticable; yet it is a matter of the utmost importance that a well-digested plan should, as soon as possible, be adopted for the proper establishment of the militia. The attention of the government ought particularly to be directed to the formation of a select corps of moderate extent, upon such principles as will really fit them for service in case of need. By thus circumscribing the plan, it will be possible to have an excellent body of well-trained militia, ready to take the field whenever the defense of the State shall require it. This will not only lessen the call for military establishments, but if circumstances should at any time oblige the government to form an army of any magnitude that army can never be formidable to the liberties of the people while there is a large body of citizens, little, if at all, inferior to them in discipline and the use of arms, who stand ready to defend their own rights and those of their fellow-citizens. This appears to me the only substitute that can be devised for a standing army, and the best possible security against it, if it should exist." (Federalist Letter 29 - 7th paragraph http://www.constitution.org/fed/federa29.htm)

Clearly Hamilton is speaking not of the army but of a militia of well trained people with the use all military fire power to be held by them in defense of the state, their own rights and those of their fellow citizens. Is that not the best thing you've ever read short of John 3:16? THANK YOU ALEXANDER HAMILTON.

Old Hamilton was not all together a bad guy as some make him out to be. Or you might say even the questionable patriots of the revolution were absolute saints compared to the majority of ordinary tyrannous federal legislators, judges and executives of today!

THE UN'S PLAN TO USE FOOD AS A WEAPON OF CONTROL by Robert Singer posted on 2009 Feb 3

The Codex Alimentarius Commission, based in Rome, is an international organization jointly created in 1962 by the Food and Agricultural Organization (FAO) and the World Health Organization (WHO) of the United Nations, “allegedly” to protect the health of consumers with guidelines for food standards.

Codex Alimentarius may present the greatest disaster for our food supply—and thus for our health—this country has ever seen, and if not stopped is likely to be implemented starting in 2011. Let me repeat that, the greatest disaster to our health if not stopped, starting in 2011. (More)

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.

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.

First broadcast over Great Britain’s public service TV station, this documentary deconstructs the myth that Global Warming is caused by human activity. World-class scientists explain that it is caused by solar activity, and that similar cycles have occurred many times in history. Solar activity recently was high, so higher temperatures are the expected result. In previous years, when industrialization was increasing at its greatest rate, temperatures went down. (More)

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

G. Edward Griffin responds to questions from a camera crew creating a video documentary on the U.S. Constitution.

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.

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?

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)
