Initial AFTF Premier Night Feedback..

America: Freedom To Fascism Premier.......God Bless America!!

July 28, 2006

A Letter to AFTF Volunteers:

There's an incredible buzz of energy, activity and truth flowing in the wake of this movie.

The results of all of our hard work nationwide within this loosely knit volunteer network are goingto continue to manifest and expand in very powerful ways. I have witnessed this firsthand here in Chicago and we're witnessing the sharing of the same effects around the country.

I just got off the phone with Richard Castro, VP of Theatrical Distribution, at Cinema Libre. He said he's amazed at the very high level of booking interest he's been getting from all across the country. Hundreds of theatres are calling him to request - DEMAND even! - to screen/show/promote Aaron's movie. Richard said he's been involved in dozens of these independent films and it's very, very unusual to see this extremely high level of pre-release interest coming from theatres. His normal procedure is to call the theatres trying to convince them to screen these independent movies.

There have been dozens of incredible stories we've received from volunteers over the past 1-2 weeks that testify to the incredible power of this movie.

Some of our leading volunteers will be videoing and recording digital pictures of the historic events of this weekend. If you get this message and would like to contribute to this process, please contact me at my personal email address - - and send along your video/digital files. I spoke to Aaron this morning and he's committed to making a commercial out of these clips of feedback from movie-goers this weekend that testify to the extreme power of the truth behind this movie.

Before I go to the premier of Aaron's movie here in Chicago tonight, I would like thank everyone for the time, trust, energy, and prayers you have placed in this supporting and promoting this movie. There's a great awakening going on in our world and it's wonderful to be part of this process. I have been honored to touch base and work, however very brief it may be for many of you on this list,

After this weekend it is my/our sincere hope that AFTF will spread nationwide. And we will continue to need all of your support to make this happen!

Thanks again for all of your help and support!

May God continue to Bless this Renewal and Awakening of America!

Peace and God Bless,

Fred Smart

David Noe's Allentown To NYC AFTF Bus Tour

David Noe had a brainstorm.....

Add these ingredients:

1) ONE (1) Luxury bus - departs from Allentown PA 3 PM EST, arrives NYC 4:45 pm

2) 47 paid tickets to Aaron Russo's movie, America: Freedom To Fascism (AFTF) -

3) Three pretty good sized ads advertising this "Free Ride to NYC to see Aaron's movie" across 3 days in the local "Allentown Morning Call" PA paper - two black and white, one color (circulation 100,000+ per day)

4) ONE (1) BIG 9' X 4' AFTF banner draped on the side of the bus.

5) ONE (1) feature in the local "Allentown Morning Call" paper written by a local reporter to cover this colorful story - which will include a picture of the luxury bus with the banner, etc.

6) A guaranteed opportunity to meet and greet Hollywood film producer, Aaron Russo, at the NYC premier of his new movie, America: Freedom To Fascism.

This afternoon we interviewed David Noe about how these ingredients are being mixed up as follows:

And after we logged that interview David Noe asked us "do you know who's been a key inspiration behind this project?"

We didn't "noe", so David Noe responded "Bob Graham has been a BIG inspiration."

So we called Bob Graham and logged this interview as follows....

Congressman McFadden on the Federal Reserve Corporation Remarks in Congress, 1934

On May 23, 1933, Congressman, Louis T. McFadden, brought formal charges against the Board of Governors of the Federal Reserve Bank system, The Comptroller of the Currency and the Secretary of United States Treasury for numerous criminal acts, including but not limited to, CONSPIRACY, FRAUD, UNLAWFUL CONVERSION, AND TREASON. The petition for Articles of Impeachment was thereafter referred to the Judiciary Committee and has YET TO BE ACTED ON.

So, this ELECTRONIC BOOKLET should be reprinted, reposted, set up on web pages and circulated far and wide.

"Mr. Chairman, we have in this Country one of the most corrupt institutions the world has ever known. I refer to the Federal Reserve Board and the Federal Reserve Banks, hereinafter called the Fed. The Fed has cheated the Government of these United States and the people of the United States out of enough money to pay the Nation's debt. The depredations and iniquities of the Fed has cost enough money to pay the National debt several times over.

Onion AV Club Pans “Freedom to Fascism”

It seems Aaron Russo might have stepped too far out of the mainstream with many of the issues he brings up in America: Freedom to Fascism, because the Onion A.V. Club — a source I trust for honest and impartial reviews — totally slammed it in a big way.

Lots of reader comments.

The Free Press Covers AFTF

OH MY GOD I HAD NO IDEA!! That's what the audience is saying as they walk out of Aaron Russo's new film, America: From Freedom to Fascism. Their voices are hushed. Some faces are pale and wet with tears, sick at what they've discovered. Many are red, angry to learn for the first time that they have been robbed -- their country, their rights, and their very future have been stolen from them and their children.

James Turk Reviews AFTF

There is a new movie that everyone must see. It’s called AMERICA: FREEDOM TO FASCISM. This gripping, revealing documentary is produced and directed by Aaron Russo, who I am both pleased and honored to say is someone I have known for fifteen years.

Capone Is Reduced To Paranoid, Quivering Goo After AMERICA: FREEDOM TO FASCISM!!

Hey, everyone. Capone in Chicago here.

I don't mean to invoke the name of Harry Knowles in my reviews two weeks in a row, but in the same lengthy conversation in which he accused me of being too old to appreciate Lady in the Water (apparently most of America was also "too old" this past weekend), he also asked me a question I never thought another human being on this planet would ask me: "Have you seen a film called America: Freedom to Fascism?" My heart practically jumped out of my chest when he spoke these words.

Is The US Bankrupt?

Patrick Wood
July 18, 2006

Do Federal Reserve managers secretly believe that the U.S is bankrupt and is about to go under?

Well, where there's smoke, there's fire!

A stunning 23 page report by Professor Laurence J. Kotlikoff titled "Is the U.S. Bankrupt?" was issued by the Federal Reserve Bank of St. Louis in November, 2005, and quietly posted on their public website. Although publicly accessible, it was totally ignored by the U.S. press.

Promoting AFTF "On The Street" here in Chicago..

Last Thursday, July 20th, John Dean from Watergate fame, visited the GIANT Borders Books on North Clark street here in Chicago - located right across the street from the Landmark Theatre where Aaron Russo's film will open here in Chicago on Friday, July 28th - to promote his new book, "Conservatives Without Conscience".

Three AFTF volunteers were there, including myself, to pass out AFTF flyers will people were waiting in line to get John to sign a copy of his book during the period prior to John Dean's talk to what was a pretty packed crowd.

Paul DiGuida, one of our most aggressively persistent volunteers managed not only to share full color flyer of the movie with John, but for the remainder of the autograph session, the AFTF movie flyer remained sitting just to the left of his left arm while he signed his book for dozens of people.

Here's an audio blog that reports on this event.

My Review Of Aaron Russo's Film, "America: Freedom To Fascism"

By Chuck Baldwin
Food For Thought From The Chuck Wagon
July 21, 2006

Several readers have written me asking that I promote Aaron Russo's new film. Well, until recently I had not seen it, and certainly I could not promote (or criticize) a film until I had an opportunity to view it. That opportunity presented itself a few days ago in the form of a private screening.

Most readers probably already know that Aaron Russo has enjoyed a distinguished career as a film producer winning Grammy, Tony, and Emmy awards. His films have starred people such as Bette Midler, Lionel Hampton, Eddie Murphy, Nick Nolte, Morgan Freeman, and many others. To date, Russo's films have been nominated for six Academy Awards, as well as seven Golden Globes. His films have won three Golden Globes and the Image Award. His latest film is a documentary entitled, "America: Freedom To Fascism."

30 Second AFTF Radio Ad Audio

Here's the link for the radio ad that's going to be playing in the five opening cities. Some AFTF Volunteers in the Chicagoland area are creating a customized local 30 second radio add that will be sandwiched with the official radio ad from Cinema Libre and placed on two suburban stations that will reach into the far western suburbs of Chicago:

WBIG 1280 AM in Aurora, Illinois

WRMN 1410 AM in Elgin, Illinois

A 60 second ad runs $35 on these stations. They're planning on running several/many ads.

Special thanks to Ron Newman, former morning radio host at WBIG AM, and "Mike from Lee" for putting this package/idea together. Ron Newman is locally famous for his exclusive "2003 WBIG Truth In Taxation Series," his "2003 Truth In The Federal Reserve Series," his "May 2003 Constitution Week" and his "December 2003 Judicial Corruption Week" among other series.

The key focus of these meetings was our final push to activate the AFTF Volunteer networks in the five opening cities: Austin, Chicago, Kansas City, New York, Tampa.

Federal Reserve: U.S. headed for bankruptcy

Report: Coming $65.9 trillion fiscal gap
5 times GDP, twice size of national wealth
Posted: July 16, 2006

A newly published paper by a researcher for the Federal Reserve Bank of St. Louis warns that a ballooning budget deficit and pension and welfare timebomb is growing into a $65.9 trillion fiscal gap that will force the United States into bankruptcy.

In the view of Prof. Laurence Kotlikoff of Boston University, the U.S. is already bankrupt – at least the government is.

America: Freedom To Fascism PROMO DVD ready for sale/distribution via the web

An ATFT Volunteer from the Baltimore area, Art Pollock, and his son - I don't remember his name (so sorry) - have finished their work on a AFTF PROMO DVD which contains original quality versions of all the AFTF trailers as well as the Conscious Media Network interview - - with Aaron Russo which has received rave reviews from around the world.

Art and his son are selling this AFTF PROMO DVD for just $2 - which covers burning, labling, packaging and shipping expenses. Please note that this also includes what I believe is a $1 donation to All Your Freedoms, Inc. paypal account to support the advertising/promotion of Aaron's movie.

The production of this promo DVD has taken lot creative effort and time. The package is very professional. Included in the production are graphic DVD menus and links to encourage viewers to visit Aaron's website and donate to support the marketing/distribution of his film.

Please also note that Art and his son received the proper releases from Aaron and the Conscious Media Network for this DVD. I personally assisted in the process of securing these releases - and it took time, time which we really are in short supply of right now. They are not encoding this DVD which means that local people are encouraged to make copies to hand out to people in their local markets. But please note that the $2 pricing of this DVD is so low that my very strong recommendation is for our volunteers to encourage everyone they know to purchase and distribute as many of these DVDs NOW directly from Art and his son by going to this site:

Please support Art's son by buying and passing out as many of these DVDs as you can right NOW!

Vermont Commons - SUMMER '06 WEB EXCLUSIVE! Film Review - "From Freedom To Fascism"

Submitted by Rob Williams on Fri, 07/14/2006 - 3:26pm.

FILM REVIEW: Connecting The Plots: “America – Freedom to Fascism”

Hollywood producer Aaron Russo is a guy who knows how to have fun, having produced such movies as “Trading Places” (featuring comedian/actor Eddie Murphy).

But his new film “America: From Freedom To Fascism” is a radical departure from such fare.

As Russo tells the story, in making his new documentary he set out on a quest to answer a question he’d heard for many years.

Namely, is there really a law requiring U.S. citizens to pay taxes on their labor?

What he uncovers along the way, he then weaves into one of the most important grassroots documentaries in a long time. Bring plenty of popcorn with you to see this film, because you will need energy for the post-screening journey.

Imagine this scenario: you call your local Pizza Palace planning to order two large pizzas with meat toppings. A female voice identifies you by your 20-digit national ID number. She mentions where you work. You ask how she knows this. “We just got wired into the system,” she says. Whatever. You place your order. Suddenly she slaps you with a $20 surcharge. Aghast, you demand, “Why?” She tells you: “Your medical records show you have high blood pressure and extremely high cholesterol.” Where’d she get my medical records? Oh, yes. The system. She says she can deliver your meat pizzas anyway because Pizza Palace has a deal with your health care provider, but you must sign a waver absolving Pizza Palace of all liability in case you drop dead (nice of them), and there’s a fee for processing the waver (swell!). Then she adds a $15 fee to deliver to your house: “You live in an orange zone—another hold-up on your street just yesterday.” News to me! You gasp at the total price: $67! “You can afford it,” the girl says, “after all, you could afford to take your wife to Hawaii last year. Those plane tickets weren’t cheap.” You nearly choke. She knows I vacationed with my wife in Hawaii??? She also knows you checked out a book at the library on how to save money vacationing at the beach, though, and can name a magazine your wife subscribes to. You’re hungry, so finally you agree to all the terms and all the fees, just to get your food. “Uh-oh, looks like you’ve maxed out all your credit cards, though. Have cash on hand, okay?”

Is this where we’re heading?

INSIDE THE FEDERAL RESERVE: WND unveils comprehensive report on 'fraud of the century'

Posted: July 6, 2006
1:00 a.m. Eastern

© 2006

While millions of Americans look with awe to the Federal Reserve to protect the nation's financial well being, millions more mistrust the Fed, seeing it as an unaccountable, private banking cartel siphoning off citizens' wealth and manipulating America's economy for the benefit of a hidden elite.

Where does the truth lie? That's the question that's asked – and answered in-depth – in the July issue of WorldNetDaily's acclaimed monthly Whistleblower magazine.

Here's the link..

Ties in perfectly with the premier of Aaron Russo's movie, America: Freedom To Fascism.
