Listen to AMERICA on Peter Mac Show

Cut & Paste from the AFTF Official Blog:

We're hitting America's airwaves. Fred Smart, national volunteer coordinator for Aaron Russo's AMERICA: FREEDOM TO FASCISM, was a June 27 guest on the Peter Mac Show, hosted by Peter McCandless in Kansas City.

Also on the show: Robert Allen Jones, an ex-Marine, Vietnam veteran and former Washington DC-based special prosecutor with the Department of Justice in the early 1970s. He tells his own story about the government's attempt to chill his ability to defend his clients before the IRS.

From Peter Mac's web site: "We're hoping that this film creates the kind of shockwave all over the country necessary to fix what is wrong and restore order, reason and Constitutional governance back to the Federal government."

New AFTF Volunteer Detail Form

Dear AFTF Volunteers:

June 15th - the 791st anniversary of the Magna Carta in 1215 - marked the one- (1) month anniversary of the official beginning of the AFTF Volunteer Network. On May 15th Aaron appeared as a guest for three hours on "Coast To Coast With George Nora" - On that same night a new link was added to to my email address. There was zero/no automation. Volunteers signed up in droves and we were backed up and overloaded from day one.

One (1) month later, thanks to an AFTF volunteer who is a skilled database developer, we thrilled to announce that we've deployed phase one (1) of a plan to automate this process - i.e. deploying a database with rules and logic which successfully has successfully logged in and responded to the vast majority of the 800+ volunteer submissions.

Volunteer Organization - Phase 2 –

Phase two (2) of our quest to automate this process begins today with the introduction of a follow-up online Volunteer Detail request form, which will allow us to segment our volunteers into groups according to their interests, skills and resources.

Daniel Ellsberg Interview

"The day after the next 9/11 our freedoms are gone."

In 1971, as a Defense Department Official and Vietnam Vet, he "released" 7,000 pages of Nixon's secret war plans, "The Pentagon Papers", to The New York Times. Placing him at the top of Nixon's "Enemies List" and having Henry Kissinger call his "The most dangerous man in the world!"

Bill Maher's Blog Comments On AFTF

America: Freedom to Fascism

"Seriously, this is a very interesting movement. It's not some whackjob either - I've actualy heard of the guy, Aaron Russo. And what's he's saying, is that we are all very much so still in control of our government - and as an added bonus we don't have to pay income taxes - it's... true."

Aaron Russo has been one of my favorite movie producers ever since I saw Trading Places. Turns out that Aaron is as wonderful as his movies – as I learned when I met him filming his new documentary America: From Freedom to Fascism.

From Freedom To Fascism Conscious Media Network Interview - May 31, 2006

The AFTF hits keep on coming.

This is a great personal interview with Aaron.

Please spread far and wide.

Here's the link:

From Freedom To Fascism
Consious Media Network
36 min 49 sec - May 31, 2006

Born in Brooklyn and raised on Long Island, Aaron Russo began promoting rock and roll shows at local theaters while still a high school ... all » student. From there, he worked for his family's business, opened a night club in Chicago where he helped create the careers of such legendary acts as Led Zeppelin, The Who, Janis Joplin, The Grategul Dead and Jefferson Airplane. No stranger to success, Aaron was the first Hollywood Producer to command $1 million for his services, with titles such as 'Trading Places' and 'The Rose' after a seven year partnership with Bette Midler, whom he managed to become the superstar she now is. Aaron has now stepped out and produced a radical new movie called 'America: From Freedom to Fascism' and it has received standing ovations in theatres from all around the country in its test marketing. Destined to be one of this years great movies, he takes things way further than Michael Moore and proves that the there is nothing in the tax code that says you have to pay tax on your labor. Now it's time for you to decide for yourself. Do we stand up for our constitutional rights or do we bury our heads in fear from political and social pressure. You can watch the trailer at and find out where it will be playing. Then again you could just keep working and pretend you never saw this.

Cancer Treatment for Aaron

Gene Chapman here. Aaron sent out an e-mail about him having cancer treatment in Europe, so I guess it's ok now to post about it here. Fred knows all the details; it appears to be under control, and Aaron is expected to be out of the hospital by the end of June. Be in prayer for Aaron's protection in all areas these days. He carries a heavy message in the movie that stands to change the entire ballance of power in the world, if fully recognized.

June 6. Got three e-mails from Aaron. he is front and center on the movie, so I guess the cancer didn't hold him down long. gene.
