Wesley Snipes

His apartment was destroyed by the collapse of the World Trade Center's Twin Towers. He happened to have been delayed at the gym where he was working out, otherwise he would have been home at that moment.

The Biometric School Lunch?

One of our AFTF volunteers wrote:

I just got a message from a friend in Cleveland, Maple Heights. The fourth graders and maybe others were lined up in the Gym this week to give biometric readings of their hands. A note had been sent home that the kids were going to be given an ID card. Not a biometric reading. One kid refused and they said to the kid "YOU Have to." The kid said he does not buy lunch at school, but they made the kid do it anyway without the parents permission.

Words from the children's parent's relatives told me: the parents are to put money into a bank account that the child draws from. So now the schools will hold large sums of money from all students who eat lunch at the schools, most likely collecting interest or can be used for investment purposes?

America Freedom to Fascism Supporters March down Hollywood Blvd

Joining with Mahatma Ghandi's grandson, Arun, and Cindy Sheehan and Ron Kovic and a cast of thousands, America Freedom to Fascism demonstrators joined on October 28th 2006 for a march for peace!

The march began on Hollywood and Vine and ended in front of the CNN building on Sunset and Cahuenga.

Mr Ghandi took the official "first step towards peace" and put it in plaster of paris just as the stars do in front of the Chinese theater on Hollywood and Highland.

And this was also, indeed, a historical day because it was the first act of "civil obedience" towards peace, freedom and liberty where supporters of America Freedom to Fascism took it to the streets! Supporters of AFTF number 100s of thousands worldwide and the film by Aaron Russo is at number 65 on the top 100 of Google's videos as of this writing with over 120,000 people seeing the film online in the first 6 days and a rating of 5 out of 5 stars!

How I Learned To Stop Worrying and Love the New World Order

"Garko", our lead AFTF Volunteer Coordinator for Los Angeles wrote:

Back in the "good old days" of the Cold War between the USSR and USA, Legendary Film Director Stanley Kubrick released a classic film about a world gone out of communication and technology run amok and governmental nationalistic paranoia and war addiction. It was called Dr Strangelove - Or How I Learned to Stop Worrying and Love the Bomb.

But now we are in a new era and if a new movie were to be made along the same lines it might be called... How I Learned to Stop Worrying and Love the New World Order.

Bob Smither Attends AFTF Showing

Subject : Re: [SMTL_DISCUSS] AFTF Friday Night

It was a good crowd. Lots of Libertarians were there, including Bob Smither, the Libertarian candidate who wants Tom Delay's seat in Congress. He seems to be one heck of a nice guy - kind of a Ron Paul type. He's a professor of engineering at U of H. He is running neck and neck with that political whore Shelly Sekula Gibbs (vomit). Apparently she can't drum up much support in Ft. Bend County because nobody likes her. Volunteers are needed to canvass Ft. Bend for Mr. Smithers. If anyone is interested in helping out, let me know.

You might remember Mr. Smither. His young daughter Laura was abducted and murdered a few years back in the Friendswood area while she was out jogging.

Anyway, people were passing out all kinds of flyers before and after the film.

There were people in the audience who were appalled at what they were seeing and hearing in the film. We could hear them talking all around us. The part about what happened to Joe Louis got the loudest response overall.

After the film was over, everyone stood up and applauded.

I think word of mouth will be the film's best bet. Aaron Russo is wonderful - so much more appealing that Michael Moore.

Aaron Russo discusses America: Freedom to Fascism on TV talkshow

Between startling clips, Aaron Russo discusses his latest movie, America: Freedom to Fascism, and reveals why he made this very special documentary.

Watch video here.


From The Reader Comments

“Weapons Of Snipes Destruction” (No WSD Found)

Someone once said, “In Hollywood, there is no such thing as BAD PUBLICITY”. Nothing like a good scandal to bring out all of the cockroaches. If Aaron and Wesley “team-up”, not only will this IRS “Show Trial” appear on ABC, CBS, NBC, FOX, and CNN, there will also be spots on Inside Edition, Entertainment Tonight, and the Daily Show. Imagine the “OPENING MONOLOGUES” of Jay Leno and David Letterman.

“I see in the LA Times that the IRS is charging Wesley Snipes $12 Million in back taxes. Can you imagine the economic impact of that much money being applied to the $7 Trillion Dollar National Debt? Whew! I feel better already.”

“Have you heard that Movie Producer, Aaron Russo is doing a re-make of “Trading Places”? Yeah. Well, instead of the poor, black-guy getting rich, this time the rich, black-guy becomes poor. I understand that Russo is talking with Wesley Snipes about taking the lead role. Snipes reportedly asked Russo if this role would include foreign travel.”

Keith Olbermann Commentary

Keith Olberman is a man of succinct and powerful words. This commentary is an outstanding discourse that confirms that we no longer have a Bill Of Rights. We cannot wait to see what happens next. It is imperative beyond anybody's words that we must....

The Wesley Snipes Situation

Everybody in America knows that the IRS is after Wesley Snipes.

I think Aaron Russo should try to capitalize on this full court press of media attention that they are putting up against Wesley Snipes.

They're trying to say he's a tax cheater that tried to bilk the federal government out of $12 million and now they're going to get him just like they'll get anybody who tries to cheat the federal government out of any money.

Aaron Russo should get with Wesley Snipes and hype up the Wesley Snipes versus IRS trial into a media spectacle bigger than the Scopes Monkey Trial.

I mean this thing could be bigger than the Michael Jackson trial or the OJ Simpson trial.

Russo should pull Wesley Snipes out of hiding and put him up in some apartment in Hollywood near where Aaron Russo lives. Imagine the headlines now....









We have the opportunity to get that headline on every major newspaper accross the country. On ABC, NBC, CBS, FOX, CNN.

My two cents.

Doug Kenline
Atlanta, Georgia


Yesterday, I wrote about Wesley Snipes being indicted for tax fraud. I was in a quandary as to whether it was an opportunity to bring the subject into full light of the American Public, or if it was a diversion. I was spinning my wheels. How did I resolve the issue? I didn't.

While some of us look at the trees, others are able to see the forest. Aaron Russo sees the forest. He was on the conference call last night. He listened anonymously while we chatted about petitioning the IRS and other related issues motivated by our good intentions. You know what road is paved with good intentions, don't you"

When Aaron finally spoke, he firmly revealed to us the bigger picture and reminded us that we MUST concentrate on SHUTTING DOWN THE FEDERAL RESERVE. Nothing else is going to make a difference. We no longer have a Bill of Rights. All the petitions, demonstrations and chatter about other issues are futile. They won't make a bit of difference.

Last night, George Bush put another feather in his cap and a bigger ball and chain on us. By signing bills S 3930 and HR 6166, called the Military Commissions Act of 2006, there are now rules that would allow the once unlawful detainment of prisoners deemed "High Profile" to be lawful even though the Supreme Court ruled against them. (To find our more about what this bill entails read what Amanda Allen, senior psychology and political science major from Goodlettsville, Tennessee and administrative vice president of the SGA wrote in the Western Kentucky University Herald.

There are already some 80,000 names that cannot board the airlines. Is your's one of them? Your gut should be wrenching about now. While you debate over how to protest the war, or petition the IRS, or wonder how Wesley's going to fair, pay attention to the weight of that ball and chain. You can't take it off.

So, good luck to Wesley, but the whole episode is amother distraction. It will not make any difference whether he wins or loses his case with the IRS. To battle the IRS is a debilitating distraction. We all know the power of the IRS, but there is a much greater power that feeds the IRS. The supreme authority that rules this country is wielded from a veracious beast we've been feeding for 63 years. Imagine a beast with more arms than a giant squid, more greed than Midas could begin to muster and more lust for power than Adolph Hitler could ever dream. We GAVE the Federal Reserve permission to make money out of thin air and so it does. Whoever makes the money, makes the laws. AND, it's not any more federal than the Federal Express.

The really sad part is that Americans living from pay check to pay check actually believe that the money they're paid for their hard labor has value. It does have value; about 4 cents on the dollar. There's nothing to back it up. Nothing. The cartel of bankers behind the Federal Reserve are really the government. Corporations ruling the masses is called "Fascism". That's what we got, folks. Fascism.

All the disturbing issues that we chat about are backed by incredible wealth. Follow the money! Your money! Wealth is the ascendancy. Thus, the only way to be effective is to go to the source of that wealth and cut it off. Consolidate all your concerns into one simple source. The Federal Reserve has grown to become a republic eating Goliath because we have all been sleeping. Even those that have been awake have been shamefully complacent. Now we are awaking. And, we are angry. But, even our rage can be redirected and diverted. Make no mistake, this has been a long-range plan and great forethought was given toward keeping control even after we begin to discover the truth. Simple, really. Keep us divided, polarized and distracted.

Those in power know that "united we stand - divided we fall" is not just a platitude, but a sure way to keep the public from having any knowledge of the real agenda. The anti-war movement has the best of intentions. Though making some political headway, their recognition of the fascist remaking of society is stubbornly absent. Going through the motions of protest as usual while all of society is being remade underneath our feet is to abandon our responsibility to the future of humanity.

The movie, AMERICA: FREEDOM TO FASCISM plainly reveals that the people behind the Federal Reserve are at the root of America's decline. This profound and startling revelation is getting no press whatsoever (duh). The unnerving but undeniable truth will empower you with knowledge that wealth cannot buy.

Certainly, wealth is power. But so is knowledge. Knowledge followed by action our last chance. At this point,it is the ONLY weapon we have to stop the system that was designed to enslave us. It is imperative that every American, concerned or not, view this film. It is a tangible and pragmatic opportunity to galvanize the public as ONE powerful entity. Not Republicans or Democrats, Left or Right but – Americans.

Knowing this, you don't have to try and convince anybody of anything about all the different issues, or your view on conspiracy theories. You donÂ’t have to belittle the republicans or praise the democrats. Just spread the word to see the film. With enough people KNOWING that the root cause of our decay is the beast we have unwittingly fed for 63 years, we have a chance to save this country by using the power that we have as united individuals taking action and SHUT DOWN THE FEDERAL RESERVE! WAKE UP!!

As Aaron states, “Once we remove the head of the beast, the truth of all the other issues will automatically fall into place.” Today, we have the power.
Tomorrow, I'm not so sure.

Opps!! Google Trends redux: Aaron Russo NOT more popular than Bush, Oprah...yet

One of our volunteers noted the other day:

I hate to be the bearer of bad news, but I found this incredibly hard to believe. So I used the same google trends tool to search george, oprah and aaron.... and both are markedly higher than aaron's ranking.... so whoever is using the tools and making these announcements on your behalf Aaron, does not understand how to use web tools .... look at the same search that I did with all three separated by commas, as the site suggests to group searches for comparative purposes. However, most people do not get searched enough to show up on google at all, so in that regard, you are getting lots of exposure and the site and momentum that we built for you proves out to be a success.

Wesley Snipes Conspires Against IRS

When I heard the news about Wesley Snipes facing charges of tax evasion, an immediate dilemma arose. Is this an opportunity? Or, is it a trap?

Was the mainstream media told it was time for another weapon of mass distraction and chose the wrong topic? If so, they have opened the door of opportunity to bring the tax issue into full view of the American people. Or, do the spin-masters arrogantly believe that it's a slam dunk conviction and decided to make this high profile case an example of what happens to you if you don't pay income tax?

As I read the various news reports, I noticed how cleverly they were constructed. See if you pick up on the same rhetoric intent of Claire Hoffman, of the L.A.Times

"The actor is accused of trying to cheat the government out of about $12 million by filing false returns."

"Trying to cheat..." The word "TRY" suggests a presumed failure and coupled with "Cheat" we know for sure that he's failed as a CHEATER, and so will anybone else who doesn't "pay their fair share".

In the next paragraph, words in italics are those that struck me as typical ingredients of a fine brew for formenting fear.

"Actor Wesley Snipes was indicted Tuesday by a federal grand jury in Florida on charges of attempting to bilk the federal government out of almost $12 million by filing false tax refund claims."

The word "Federal" is used twice. Let's beef up the power of that word, so that when the people hear the "Federal" in Federal Reserve, they will not challenge its omnipotence. I realize that I'm pushing the envelope here. I doubt they are THAT meticulous in their manipulation. Then again,...dunno. But I had to laugh as I read the
Boston Globe quoting US Attorney Paul I. Perez at a news conference.

"It's a conspiracy against the IRS, basically to harass the IRS, from doing its lawful job in terms of collection of taxes,"

So, Snipes is a cheater who is harrassing the IRS, conspiring against them, bilking the government for millions, and all THEY want to do is take what's lawfully theirs. You've got to admit; that's pretty slick manipulation.

Anything that challenges the emerging fascism is a conspiracy. The real conspiracy is the claim that everything else is a conspiracy.

There could be a number of reasons this story is hitting the news. From just being a fluke to Divine Intervention, it's a story that has many dimensions. Since I don't believe in accidents, luck or coincidence, I'm left to trust that the truth, even though not a high priority in politics, will be the victor. I am comforted in saying this because history has proved that arrogance is always the downfall of tyrants.

So tell me, what scenario do you see happening with Wesley Snipe? Would it not behoove him to see the movie, "AMERICA: FREEDOM TO FASCISM"

Aaron Russo Uncovers America

Phil Brennan,

Do you know which law requires you to file an income tax form? Is the Federal Reserve System a part of the federal government or a privately owned bank?

Ask most Americans to name the law that mandates the filing of income tax forms and they'll tell you they can't – but they're sure it's in there someplace.

As award-winning film producer Aaron Russo ("The Rose," "Trading Places") claims in this blockbuster of a film, it's not. "There is no law," Russo insisted to

If they think about it at all, most Americans think the Federal Reserve System – the all-powerful central bank that produces our currency and controls credit – is an agency of the federal government.

Not according to Aaron Russo. He'll tell all who will listen that the Federal Reserve System is a privately owned bank, accountable solely to the unidentified banks – many of them foreign banks – that own it lock, stock and barrel. Moreover, the identities of the banks that own the Fed are a deep, dark secret.

And most of your money, collected from the taxes you pay, goes to pay the interest on the national debt to the banks that hold the government's IOUs, Russo said.

What galls Russo is the fact that "the government can make their own money without paying any interest. Why are we paying interest to these banks when we can make the money for nothing? But, the worst part of the scam is the fact that they control the government because of all this."

During the Civil War, President Abraham Lincoln spurned borrowing money from foreign banks to finance the war and borrowed $450 million directly from the American people by selling them bonds redeemable after the war.

This infuriated the international bankers, leading the Times of London to write: "It will pay off its debts and be without debt. It will become prosperous without precedent in the history of the civilized governments of the world. The brains and wealth of all countries will go to North America. That government must be destroyed or it will destroy every monarchy on the globe."

If all this shocks you, wait until you see Aaron Russo's new film, appropriately titled "America: Freedom to Fascism." It's a shocker. asked Russo how audiences are reacting to the film. "People are crying when they leave the theater," he said. The film "is really bringing people together."

Added popular Internet journalist Devvy Kidd, the film "could once and for all blow a hole so big in the web of deception, the course of history could be changed."

"America: Freedom to Fascism" connects the dots between money creation, voter fraud, the proposed national identity card, the implementation of radio frequency identification (RFID) technology to track citizens and the police state quietly evolving in America.

As the film shows, none of this is the imagination of some right-wing conspiracy nut. What's happening is thoroughly backed up and documented with interviews with top experts such as Rep. Ron Paul, R-Texas, former IRS criminal investigator Joe Banister, Katherine Albrecht, author of "Spychips," and the authors of the Federal Reserve exposé, "The Creature from Jekyll Island."

Telling the truth can be risky to a producer attempting to attract audiences to his film, as Russo explains.

"There are forces out there that don't want this movie seen or heard, and they're putting a media clampdown on me. They are seeing that I can't buy that much advertising to get media publicity to promote this movie around the country. Those are the tactics used to make sure I don't get on the air."

Booking the film into theaters, he added, has not been a problem. According to his office, the film has been shown to large audiences in ten cities and now, it is in Los Angeles. Soon, it will be in theaters all across America and available on the Internet.

In the film, Russo insists focuses on what he says is the illegality and deception surrounding the federal income tax and the founding of the Federal Reserve System.

He also says the Constitution's ruling that only the government is authorized to create money has been defied. Congress simply handed the power over to the Federal Reserve in 1913.

It's not just Russo and other critics of the Fed who have railed against the creation of a central bank. Abraham Lincoln, Andrew Jackson, and even Franklin Roosevelt warned against a U.S. central bank.

Said Thomas Jefferson in just one statement of many against a central bank: "I believe that banking institutions are more dangerous to our liberties than standing armies . . . the issuing power should be taken from the banks and restored to the government, to whom it properly belongs."

"I am trying to wake America up," Russo said. "That's why I used that title. Fascism is a reality in America. Fascism is the synergistic effort of big government and big corporations working together to stifle the people. That's what we have in America today. The corporations have taken over America, and the largest corporation of all is the Federal Reserve System. "

America ~ It's In Your Hands!

We are indeed on the brink of a totalitarian government and we have no one to blame but ourselves. Yes, we've been lied to since we were born. Yes, our history books did not tell how the United States began its mission to rule the globe. Was Manifest Destiny the seed? Or, perhaps it goes farther back in history than we can imagine.

I'm uncovering so much dirt under this country's carpet that I'm choking on the dust. I've been duped by those I trusted and I'm outraged at the repercussions. But, I'm mature enough to know that I can redirect my anger and use it to turn the tide. The waves of lies that swelled into a false belief system will be overcome, if I have to walk on the water to do so. Knowing the truth is saddening yet invigorating. If "the truth shall set you free", then America desperately needs the truth that this shocking yet galvanizing movie delivers. And then what? Use that truth for the sake of freedom. America, it's in your hands!

From Freedom To Fascism...And Back

From Freedom To Fascism...And Back

How unreal are we going to let reality get before we get real?
-- Swami Beyondananda

The other night, I watched the most heartening disheartening movie I've seen in a long time. Huh?? Let me explain. The movie was called America: From Freedom to Fascism, and while the content was disheartening, the context was heartening indeed.

At a time when America has surely been divided and just about conquered, segregated into two rival cultural / political tribes that are discouraged from having civil discourse, here finally is an attempt to create a unifying context. America: From Freedom to Fascism is the work of Libertarian activist and film producer Aaron Russo (The Rose, Trading Places), and it takes on the illegality of the Internal Revenue Service and the private ownership of the Federal Reserve Bank -- pet libertarian issues generally associated with the right wing. The movie also criticizes the war in Iraq, the Patriot Act, and other recent attempts to turn due process into "doo-doo process." The result is a film that shows how both political parties operate to the detriment of the vast majority of Americans. Could it be that we the people finally have a unifying tool to help grow the "up-wising?"

Consider that earlier this year, Jefferson Public Radio (Ashland, Oregon) talk show host Jeff Golden ( author of As If We Were Grown-ups) cosponsored a showing of the movie with a right-wing Rush Limbaugh-clone talk show host from nearby Medford. The film played to a full house, roughly half of whom identified as "progressive," and half "conservative." As the final credits rolled, the entire crowd stood up and cheered together.

This should be cause for all of us to cheer.

While strategically it makes all the sense in the world to throw the Republicans out of power in Congress this fall, throwing the Democrats in will not in and of itself alter the corporate influence in government. A Democratic victory should definitely be seen as the first step for "we the people" taking back America, but it is only a first step. And given the Democrats' uncanny knack for snatching defeat from the jaws of victory -- primarily by not facing the fundamental issues that are apparent to more and more Americans daily -- their regaining Congress would be even more an expression of changing political will in this country.

Lasting change of direction can only come when a significant number of Americans choose to step away from the limiting positions of "left" and "right" and come together to thoughtfully face the real issues that confront us:

What really creates safety and security in a shrinking world that could use a good shrink?
How can we use our human and planetary resources to feed the whole -- instead of the "hole" we seem to be feeding now?
How can we nourish independence and interdependence at the same time?
How do we turn issues like global warming, peak oil and environmental reconstruction into economic and spiritual opportunities?

But before we talk about what could be happening in this country, it's essential that we face what IS happening here. Put another way, before we put the body politic on a bodybuilding regimen, we must address the life-threatening situation it's in right now.

First the Good News: The Law of 75
Several years ago, spiritual psychologist Patricia Sun was speaking at a "new age" bookstore being picketed by four Christian fundamentalists. When she suggested going out and talking to the pickets, the bookstore owner rolled her eyes and said, "You can't talk to those people." Patricia decided to do it anyway. She went out there, looked them in the eye and spoke from her heart. After a short while three of the four put down their signs. "You're saying what Jesus said!" they said, and hugged her. The fourth refused and continued picketing

This story led me to conclude that three out of four people -- whatever their ideological orientation -- are capable of transcending that belief system in the face of something greater: The power of love and respect. Or as the Swami has said, "Get 'em by their hearts and their heads will follow." Hence what I call "The Law of 75."

Of course, in this divide-and-conquer atmosphere where the media tends to spark heat instead of light, the "you can't talk to those people" mentality prevails. And it doesn't seem to matter whether those people are Christian fundamentalists or Muslim ones. Merely the disdainful designation as "those people" is enough to tear the thin membrane of mutual respect, even before a word is uttered.

A recent article in the Washington Post suggests that "those people" might not be what we've been led to think. According to the article, between 20% and 35% of so-called "evangelicals" actually subscribe to progressive values like economic equity, environmentalism (which they call "Care for Creation") and ending the war in Iraq. So, if these evangelicals make up 25% of America's population, and at least one fifth of them don't buy into the religious right's religious wrongs, that means that the "base" of the religious right is less than 20% of American voters.

So how is it that the Neocon Republicans can rule on the basis of such a small base? Well, as we will see it's not their base that has debased our democracy and put freedom in the basement. It's their baseness.

And Now the Other News: It's Not the Base, It's the Baseness
This past Saturday night in Santa Rosa, the Swami had the honor of opening for Mark Crispin Miller, author of Fooled Again: How the Right Stole the 2004 Election and Why They'll Steal the Next One (Unless We Stop Them).

Miller, a respected writer and professor at NYU, has been -- in the parlance of the 60s -- "radicalized." That's when some significant emotional event springs you from the matrix of conventional beliefs, and all of a sudden you find yourself saying things you never dreamed you'd be saying. Miller's radicalizing experience came when he began investigating election fraud before the 2004 election, and then had his suspicions fully confirmed afterward. As Miller said to open his talk, when you allow yourself to look at the evidence there is no doubt whatsoever that not only are voting machines hackable, they have been hacked and they will be hacked again.

The issue, Miller maintains, is not just the electronic voting machines but the electronic counting of ballots, where "black box" technology is used and no one is allowed to monitor the process! "Faith-based vote counting," Swami calls it. Thanks to an article earlier this year by Robert F. Kennedy, Jr. in Rolling Stone, the voting fraud issue has broken through the "soundless barrier."

Indeed, a recent Zogby poll indicates that 45% of Americans now believe that it was election fraud that put George Bush in office the past two elections. And the other 55%? They just don't want to go there. However, as Miller so starkly pointed out, "there" has already come here. Sadly, what has kept this neo-fascist regime in power -- in addition to their willingness to do anything to stay in power -- is "Not-Seeism," the choice too many Americans have made to not see what's right in front of them.

This is understandable. Who wants to go to bed (or wake up) with the thought that the leaders we have supposedly elected have fixed elections, lied us into war, and possibly allowed or caused our nation to be attacked precisely so that we could go to war? However, as someone who has been a student of politics since I was a kid -- and not someone given to paranoid pronouncements -- I have concluded that this current regime is a different creature from any in America's history. We keep wanting to imagine them as simply a pesky and persistent brand of "conservatives" who will get their comedownance at the polls someday. In reality, they are the most toxic sociopathogen our body politic has ever had to endure, and their goal is what can only be called "the final solution to the democracy problem."

They have violated, flouted, twisted and defied the most basic common understandings of our 220-year-old political system. Their proven corruption is unbounded, and it doesn't seem to matter to them who knows it. They act as if they will never really have to face the electorate, nor be held accountable. One alarm bell is that a panoply of true conservatives -- from the far-right Cato Foundation to William F. Buckley to Richard Viguerie to John Dean -- have condemned the abuses of power on the part of the neocons and say that neo-conservatism has no resemblance whatever to real conservatism. Ironically, conservatives with conscience have been more pointed in their critique of this un-American regime than many mainstream Democrats.

According to Miller, the recent Bush campaign to "rally his base" by invoking 9/11 and security issues is a ruse. He knows his base is a minority to start with and shrinking daily. The ruse, says Miller, is merely a cover so that if and when the election is stolen -- as in 2004 -- the Republicans can crow that their "base" showed up at the polls, when it was their baseness that showed up instead. And if for some reason the Republicans still lose their grip on Congress? We can expect -- as Thom Hartmann reported on his show recently -- that THEY will cry foul, and say the Democrats perpetrated voter fraud!

So ... what to do?

From Bad News to Good News: The Antidote for Big Brother is Bigger Brotherhood
As anyone who's ever been to a 12-step program will tell you, the first step is acknowledge you have a problem. So here is the problem as clearly and starkly as it can be stated: We have a de facto dictatorship in America now, and the only thing to prevent it from becoming an "in facto" one is the awakening of we the people. As Mark Crispin Miller pointed out, even if the vote IS stolen the one thing we the people can do to assert ourselves is to vote in record numbers anyway, and to vote for regime change. The more overwhelming the turnout, the less able they will be to steal it -- and in case they do, the more overwhelming the outcry.

It's taken the body politic years to lose its muscle tone, so it would be unreasonable to expect that we can get our "mojo" back all at once. Consequently, we should do all we can to win at the polls this time and realize the "up-wising" and subsequent revitalization of America's true values is a longer term conversation. We should soberly face the likely truth that the only thing that can shore up their regime is more force, and that their ultimate goal is neo-feudalism disguised as Big Brother totalitarianism.

And the only way to outstrip Big Brother is by cultivating "bigger brotherhood." Let's remind ourselves of the Law of 75 and realize that at least 75% of American want an open society, not totalitarianism. That means, we should -- as Patricia Sun showed us -- speak face-to-face and heart-to-heart with the "heartland." I would even suggest replacing the word "Republican" with "Neocon" to describe this regime, and become familiar with what true conservatives and even Republicans ( like former Rep. Bob Barr of Georgia ) have said about Bush and company.

Get a copy of From Freedom to Fascism and show it to friends, family -- and in a public gathering if possible -- between now and election day. Familiarize yourself with the conservative critics of the neocon con, and quote them frequently. While the chances of registering new voters grow slimmer as election day approaches, one of our hopes is to "convert" Republicans to turn away from neocon fascism in favor of true conservatism. A good innocent opening question when talking with those who identify as conservatives is, "Do you trust our government to tell you the truth?" Second question is, "Would you prefer to have a government that is truthful and responsive or one that lies to you for its own benefit?" Then finally, "So what are you going to do about it?"

One likely response you'll get is the cynical one: "That's the way things are, and that's the way they'll always be. There will always be corruption, abuse, etc."

A possible answer to that is: "That's exactly what they want you to believe -- that greed and evil are our nature. But maybe they want you to believe that to provide cover for their own actions. Are people in your own family greedy and evil? Or are they, just like you, trying to get by and provide for their families?"

On the progressive side of the fence, contextualize pet progressive issues from peace to environmentalism to civil rights to social security reform as all part of the bigger conversation of restoring "government of, by and for the people where our government does the people's bidding, not the bidding of the highest bidder." From the strategic standpoint, the ONLY thing happening between now and November 7th, is changing those "R's" to "D's" in Congress ( and not the way Fox did either ). Think of all those issues as the body politic fighting a case of the flu. Think of this election as escaping from a burning building. If you were bed-ridden with the flu and the building was on fire, would you stay and nurse the flu or get out of the building?

If you can volunteer an hour or two or ten between now and then to call or mobilize voters, to be a poll watcher, to write letters to the editor -- anything -- know that you are a part of a growing energy field, no matter what the results this time around. Consider that the current gang of misleaders have the media in their pocket, have zillions of dollars to spend and have the power of force and fraud on their side. And STILL they are concerned about losing. Keep this in mind: Their greatest weapon is fear, and their greatest fear is truth.

Finally the most valuable -- and perhaps underrated -- action you can take is to keep the field of truth moving forward. In every conversation, in every meditation, in every prayer move the truth forward fearlessly. The more the field expands, the more likely change is to unfold, often in a surprising way. Last week, Trudy and I did a prayer and visualization for the body politic to "operate from the qualities of the intelligent heart" and that "the transition to the truth is safe and just."

The next morning, the headlines were full of Rep. Foley's resignation -- and the subsequent exposure of the hypocrisy of those who hide behind puritanism and yet cynically live by their own rules. The Republican misleadership immediately activated their spin and blame machine, but all indications were people just weren't buying it.

As a "coincidence theorist," I can only conclude this surprising outbreak of truth was merely a coincidence, and it sure would be nice if we could create more of them. So, here's my "tell a vision": Let's create the greatest coincidence ever -- that the reality of what America is finally coincides with the dream our Founders had. And there's no one here to do it but us.

Pastor Chuck Baldwin reviews "AMERICA: FREEDOM TO FASCISM"

By Pastor Chuck Baldwin

Several readers have written me asking why 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."

The film begins with a critical review of two monumental events that happened in 1913: the adoption of the 16th Amendment, which has been interpreted to authorize the forced taxation of individual income and the creation of the Federal Reserve, which turned the governance of America's financial system over to a centralized private banking interest. The film intelligently and convincingly makes a strong case for the opinion that both the 16th Amendment and the Federal Reserve System are flatly unconstitutional and may not even have been legally adopted.

Russo's film then factually demonstrates how modern presidents (especially Bush I, Clinton, and Bush II) have led America out of the light of liberty and into a dark alley of fascism (hence the film's title). The film provides many examples to prove the reality of that statement.

Many very credible personalities are interviewed in the film including Texas Congressman Ron Paul, constitutional scholar Edwin Vieira, Jr. Esq., former IRS special agents and investigators, and several others. Russo also interviewed former IRS commissioners, and reviewed copious court cases, including Supreme Court cases. Predictably (for such a documentary), notable tax resistors such as Bob Schulz and Franklin Sanders were also interviewed. And, frankly, their arguments are compelling!

The overall arguments and conclusions of the film are more than convincing! It will be very difficult for anyone objectively viewing this film to attack the facts and evidence presented. And for that reason, I'm confident that both the political and financial interests of this country will hope that no one watches it!

Russo also rightly connects the dots between developments such as the USA Patriot Act, the so-called "free trade" deals such as NAFTA and CAFTA, and the business and political alliance promoting illegal immigration with the overall push toward globalism and fascism.

Congressman Paul makes a compelling argument for the proposition that America is already in the process of becoming a police state. Russo also includes some disturbing police video which helps augment Paul's point.

Russo, in thorough investigative form, interviews many people ranging from everyday folks on the street to high level government officials. He also gave people from both sides of the tax debate an opportunity to present their case.

There were only a couple of disappointments with the film. I noticed two words that will be offensive to Christian audiences. Plus, had Russo added the cross-examination by the inquisitor-esque Alabama Attorney General Bill Pryor of Alabama Chief Justice Roy Moore, churches and pastors would more quickly be able to identify with this film. And if any group of people needs to see and comprehend Russo's film, it is today's pastors and churches!

The film runs for about one hour and forty five minutes. It is quite refreshing to see a first-rate documentary film which reveals the truth about the very real efforts of elites from both major parties and from international bankers to turn America into a fascist, globalist state, which is exactly what they are doing! I applaud the film and heartily recommend it! I further encourage Mr. Russo to produce a sequel and to seek assistance from likeminded Christians who can help him bring in those elements that will help his message connect with pastors and churches.

Russo's film is debuting in several major cities across the country over the next few weeks. If you have an opportunity to see it, by all means do so! If you are a real American, the film will anger you (as it was designed to do) and also challenge you to not sit passively by as international elitists steal our country out from under us. Here is the link to Russo's promo for the film:

Fantastic Review From The Simon

America: Freedom to Fascism
Aaron Russo's compelling new documentary reveals an America betrayed long ago... and a glimmer of hope that we can still fix things.
By Matt Hutaff, Oct 10, 2006

We're Catching Fire

Committing oneself to a dynamic movement like the one this movie is generating has its perks. One of them is interacting with people that are able to wrap their heads around a simple concept...We DO have the power to make a change. Each have at their very core the integrity to do what's right and just. Each activist has a true concern and compassion for the millions of sleeping Americans that have not yet removed the wool from their eyes. They each get slammed on a daily basis for expressing that concern, yet are not daunted in the process. Because they realize it is a process, they persist. And persistence alone is omnipotent.

One such valient volunteer is Aaron Russo's Press Secretary, Ilona Urban Blakeley. She rarely gets to experience the results of her endeavors like listening to an interview or watching an opening of the movie in any of the theatres. In fact, she has not even met Aaron face to face. Yet, her passion to keep our nation from turning to total Fascism is empowered with remarkable fortitude. She faces more daily rejection than spam on the Internet. But, she understands why. From the front line of this mission to wake up America, she recently found the time to send an e-mail. Here it is:

"The Press Release was sent 2 days ago to 17,000 media outlets as AMERICA: FREEDOM TO FASCISM launches into 6 cities.

Guess what? Of 17,000 releases, one, yes one response for an interview!!!

I was told by a Dallas radio Producer yesterday, whose station is promoting the movie, that Aaron's movie isn't current news! So they declined to interview Aaron.

Since when did movies have to be current news??? Was "March of the Penguins", another documentary, current news? No comparison of course.

Isn't it "current news" that a grassroots movement is launching this movie around the Country? With or without the media's help?

The Nashville station which called a week ago to have Aaron on the morning drive show for an hour, called him at the appointed 5:30am (pacific time) yesterday morning to "interview" him for a full 10 minutes!

One aspect of the "Delphi technique" is to make people feel isolated, like they're the only one who thinks a certain way. Perhaps that's what's happening here. By refusing to give a voice to a phenomenon, they want us/people to think we are the only ones--outcasts, wackos, etc.

Don't believe it for a minute!! We're catching fire!

Denver is still playing well, and as the opening theater in Portland ends it's run, another Portland theater is preparing to open AFTF.

I've had calls from interested CO volunteers who are looking for theaters outside Denver.

Our own (SC) Amanda Moore and a vigilant group of Volunteers are putting together a showing in Charleston. That run will be Oct 17, 18, 19. Please support her and tell anyone you know to make it to her opening. I'll send a follow up email to you to let you know where it's showing and the times.

We're expecting L.A. to be huge. Many public radio stations (as opposed to commercial stations) have "been on this", and Aaron has been on several of their programs with great response from the listeners.

In Phoenix a week ago, Aaron was supposed to be on the morning drive show for 30 minutes. He closed the show 2 1/2 hours later! The Host said they have never had their phones lines stay lit like that. The callers just kept coming!

This is truly being grass roots driven.

These are all "interesting" bits of information I'm sharing with you. But the truth is we have, in this film, the potential to change the entire Country. We are in desperate times folks.

Last night, I was on the phone with the third lawyer this week, who has been following the movement of AFTF on the internet and on blogs.

Of German-Jewish descent, her family was part of the Resistance, and some paid with their lives. She has come forward to help because she doesn't want this Country to go the Route of Nazi Germany.

There is a Dallas Lawyer, who also told me a couple days ago, he is considering cutting back or getting out of his Law practice altogether to do what ever it takes to restore the country.

We are so grateful to see how this film is bringing Patriots out of the woodwork once they realize what is at stake here, and they know there is a network of us with whom they can stand shoulder to shoulder.

Some of you who are political scientists can explain this much better than I, but the "Bell Curve of Public Opinion" states just like a bell curve we all studied in school, we have the 2 very thin 3% "tails" with the "bell" in the middle, when the tail gets to 5% , the bell exponentially shifts.

So our job is to help get the information out to 5%, so as to shift the curve.

I say it frequently, and will continue to think and say, "Thank You Aaron for being a truth teller"! Thank you for giving us this work as a fundamental educational tool.

Let's not squander this opportunity! At the rate things are moving, there may never be another chance.

Yours in Freedom (what's left of it),

Ilona Urban, Blakeley

Press Secretary to Aaron Russo"

I'm sure that I am joined by countless names and hearts when I say, "Thank you,Ilona, for your dedication to liberty and determination to wake up America!"

Primary Objectives of FREEDOM to FASCISM film by Aarron Russo and its supporters

Submitted for review and comments by an AFTF volunteer:

1. Stop the polarization of America
2. Stop the domination of the Democratic and Republican parties over our political system
3. Shut down the Federal Reserve system

NOTE: Article 1, Section 10 para 1, US Constitution in part declares:
“No State shall … make anything but silver and gold coin a tender in payment of debts.”

Congress has violated its economic duty to keep America free in its issuance of US coin and currency.

Therefore, we, the American People, being deprived of our economic liberties seek restoration of the principals that are laid down in the US Constitution by the following:

a. Returning America's gold to Fort Knox and resuming it being audited.
b. Having Congress and the IRS, in a public forum, reveal the law that requires most Americans to pay a direct, un-apportioned tax on their labor.
c. Rescinding the law called the Real ID Act so Americans never have to carry a National ID Card.
d. Making it illegal to implant RFID chips in human beings tracking them for economic purposes.
4. Making computerized voting illegal in all 50 states
5. Keeping the internet free and out of the control of large institutions.
6. Educating juries to the fact that they have the right to determine the law as well as the facts in all cases including tax cases.
a. The American people must know that the judge is merely the referee in all cases under the US Constitution that require juries, compared to “tax court” where the judge is an IRS agent. The real judge is the Jury chosen from among the peers of the accused which is not obligated to follow the instructions of a judge unless
i. his advise permits the innocent to go free and
ii. unless the constitutional provisions and protections for the accused are strictly followed.
iii. There must be a law in writing and shown to the Jury before a defendant can be convicted of any crime.
iv. Since the IRS repeatedly states that filing a US 1040 is voluntary, how can there be a crime of non-filing for the act of agreeing to file voluntarily?
v. A servant government is itself subject to a properly formed Jury of the people.
vi. Never is a masterful government envisioned in the US Constitution.
b. The advocates of the film are not part of any one group of people; rather they agree that honesty and transparency in taxation with absolute accountability for funds received is critical to Liberty.
c. It is better to let the guilty go free rather than to convict even one innocent person.
d. Politicians who are annually “getting tough(er) on crime” are actually creating by legislation new never-heard-of-before crimes. This must stop.
7. Stopping Globalization because it is the path to a One World government.
8. Protecting the American borders
9. Restoring the environment
10. Putting an end to the Patriot Act
11. Signing up millions of Americans to pressure Congress so these objectives can be achieved.

AFTF Premiered In Six Cities on Friday

Friday, October 6th launched the biggest premier weekend for AFTF with openings in Dallas, Los Angeles, Salt Lake City, Phoenix, Tucson and Nashwille.

Two showings in LA were completely sold out. Garko, Our lead coordinator for LA reported:

"Both shows were sold out, people stayed long afterwards outside expressing themselves, talking with Aaron and on video to Yazik, over 20 people from the first show alone filled out fliers to offer their services as volunteers. many people outside after the film were offering their support in different ways... from a guest appearance on a cable show out of Santa Barbara to a music DJ wanting to put together a creative work to promote the film's message to his public."

AFTF Sold Out Proof

Beverly Hills Theatre Marquee

Long lines for second sold-out show

Aaron Russo with theatre-goers

Phoenix was 40-50 seats shy of a sellout for the main screening - in a 220 seat theatre - and even more came for the late night screening.

Dallas was a complete success - still waiting for more concrete details.

Indications prior to Friday was that SLC was going to be a sellout - we are still waiting for concrete numbers.

Nashville was the worst among the 6 cities with only 50 tickets sold on Friday.

Yesterday we lauched a nationwide effort to pull Nashville out of the pits. Over 170 tickets were purchased by volunteers throughout the country and we had 4-6 AFTF volunteers passing out the tickets to passers-by on the campus of Vanderbuilt University and the surrounding neighborhoods.

We will have more details later.

Friday, October 06, 2006 Reviews AFTF

"In the new film America: Freedom to Fascism, Hollywood producer/director Aaron Russo (The Rose, Trading Places) calls on all Americans to put partisan politics aside to stop the erosion of civil liberties and the destruction of the Constitution."

For the first time in our nation's history our representatives have just voted for the right to hold you indefinitely in a secret detention facility, put you on trial based on evidence you cannot see and sentence you to death based on hearsay or testimony that has been gathered from torture. What about habeas corpus? Sorry, you won't be able to challenge your unlawful imprisonment. Even if the government decided to drop the charges, under these new laws, the President wouldn't be required to release you.

Subsection 4(b) (26) of section 950v. of HR 6166 claims you can be tried in a military court if you are, "Any person subject to this chapter who, in breach of an allegiance or duty to the United States, knowingly and intentionally aids an enemy of the United States, or one of the co-belligerents of the enemy." Can you (or anyone you know) define what a "co-belligerent" is? And how do we know who's been classified as an enemy?

America needs to wake up," warns filmmaker Aaron Russo. "The truth is this country is being forced into fascism by fear and intimidation coming from our own government. They are destroying our Constitution and the media isn't even covering it!" Russo's powerful new film, "America: Freedom to Fascism" uncovers the government's plan for stolen elections, a police state with a national ID card and ultimately a new world order.

America: Freedom To Fascism [2006, Movie]

Russo is a clearly a healthy minded skeptic who tries to get both sides of the story. In addition to interviewing tax experts, attorneys and a former IRS criminal investigator, he attempts to speak with representatives from the IRS itself: Few return his calls, and Homeland Security shows up when Russo attempts to film outside the IRS offices in Washington. In the end, the unavoidable question remains: Even armed with the galling knowledge presented in Russo's film, who in his or her right mind is going to take on the IRS? --Ken Fox

With that title, you might expect another documentary about the erosion of American civil liberties in the name of the war on terror, and this film gets there eventually.

Ed Ward's "The Price of Liberty" Reviews AFTF

American: Patriot to Profiteer - Aaron Russo
An in depth review of "America: Freedom to Fascism''

The Movie That Will Cause the Declaration of Worldwide Martial Law.

That's my review of Aaron Russo's Masterpiece of Rights. I cannot put it more strongly or simply. One way or the other, this is the movie of your life. The movie will make you sick to your stomach and aware of what the US government is doing by documented evidence of Both Political Parties' activity. We must act now or forever live in fear.

''America: Freedom to Fascism''' (A:FtF) is an extremely needed exceptional movie for the exposure and reform of this government's abuse of America. As one of the many activists that try to stay current with all areas of the Constitutional abuses of this government, enthusiastic surprise and relief overtook me as a post revealed "Aaron Russo's -'' America: Freedom to Fascism - Full Version - For movie screening only" on google video. Finally, here was the movie in which many are placing their hopes for release and discovery of much needed information available for mass consumption.

AFTF Oregon Opening Synopsis

Picture of Seth, Manager of the Clinton Street Theatre, and Dede Farrell, AFTF Oregon/Portland Coordinator

Dear Team,

We had a great opening here in Portland on Friday! Full house of about 225 people on the first show. I recorded footage for TV with thank you's to Aaron, which will air on PCM cable access soon. This footage is on it's way to Aaron with hope of some of our clips getting into a national commercial for promoting the film.

Please get on the daily conference call for national updates, listen in or speak up. We need you. It is a grand opportunity, after administrative agenda items are cleared for the day, to listen and learn from highly aware and educated leaders and speakers. It also gives one great hope to know we are in an awesome network of Americans who understand, care, and are being effective in changing the playing ground for the average person. Together we will be victorious. Believe it or else! Call is 4:26pm PST daily at 702 851 4044, then option 2 followed by pin 1626356#.

The response from the audiences coming out of the theater are amazing. One person ysterday said, "A person is just not the same after seeing this film". America: Freedom to Fascism will be released before Thanksgiving on Internet pay-per-view and DVD. Google video may be included as well. That should all rock this film into households across the globe. It is very exciting. Go to for news on other cities opening.

Please be in touch with me with your ideas for bringing this film to colleges, Universities, church groups or other organiztions. There are systems in place for a variety of ways to show the movie, including using it to raise funds for your projects, as well as supporting the promoting of the film. I want to extend a very special THANK YOU for all the volunteers who work with me across the state and here in the city to make our movement in Oregon a success. These are the rubber meets the road people and I'm so appreciative of your efforts. Thanks again. Thanks also to those of you who traveled from far and wide to be here with us this week-end. Your caring and concern is huge! It means everything to America.

God Bless Us All. Our new slogan is, " One Family...One Movement...Freedom for All!!!"

Love and Light,

Dede Farrell
AFTF Oregon
