Weekend Watching: G. Edward Griffin - An Idea Whose Time Has Come

This has been posted on the DP a few times and it seems like a good time to watch it again. This is an informative lecture, so you can turn the volume up and listen while you're working on something else.

Pay special from about the 22:30 mark to the 30:40 mark or so.

Good video, well worth the 1.23 hours.

That was a great lecture...

It puts things into prospective and he gives a logical method of restoring the freedoms that have been eroded over the long term.

By using the Establishment's own methods against them we can take every power seat back one by one. Creating a counter or many counters to the Council on Foreign Relations by creating "Council on Domestic Freedom", as an example, here and across the world is the only way to accomplish our goals. It can and will be a long process to regain the power but I know we will all persevere and our numbers will only keep increasing as the totalitarians increase their pressure.

Mr. Griffin is brilliant and I enjoyed every bit of his lecture. It taught me a lot and it's very inspirational.

We have candidates who are standing up like Adam Kokesh, Rand Paul and RJ Harris for example that are the types of people we must elect to be able to take it back.

Nice vid

I've been looking for what to do for a while and that's the first I've heard of someone that has a plan.

Well worth the watch.


The price of freedom is eternal vigilence. He has laid out the plan: become a delegate (doesn't matter which party), take over the media (defend the Internet!), and stay tuned to the DP.

What do you think? http://consequeries.com/

...erm, why is there an image of the hammer and sickle...

...superimposed over the earth which then morphs into the logo?...
...and what is he on about when he says at 1:17 :
..."All we need to do is look at the Council on Foreign Relations as an example. That ladies and gentlemen is our role model. That is how it is done and that is how we are going to do it"...

not sarcasm

he's simply stating they have been successful, we have not. Know your enemy, that's all.

Rogue, have you ever heard of SARCASM??

Apparently you didn't really watch this--OR you don't want others to watch it?

5 stars

This was the first video

This was the first video played for the first CFL meeting in my area & hits right in the heart of the current Ken Buck situation, whats true whats not. All the facts need to come out the who, what, where, why, when. Just simple facts, no long drawn out explanations.

It is War

With income tax time here the power elite want to finance their agenda off the backs of productive hard working people. Anytime someone takes your property from you against your will it is thievery. A keystone to the structure of individual freedom and liberty is owning and controling the fruits of ones labor.

If this is truely a government of the people as is proclaimed so often why are thieves (dictorial government agencies) taking and controling our property. The IRS must stop confiscating taxes as RP prescribes or we will become slaves - if we aren't already.

and then you die

Those without power cannot protect freedom.

We must grab the rings of power.

Key is restoring the broken chains that used to bind the state.

Those are the two take home messages.

what if the government wants

what if the government wants to build some secret bunker somewhere, and they don't have any money to build the secret bunker. how are they going to build it? you know they want to build it and wil do whatever it takes to build it and pay the people to build it. so............

I am all for gold and silver but we have to think realistically like the government. maybe there is gold and silver and ten there is a government credit or something. you know they will try.

I watched the whole thing and

I watched the whole thing and the information is GReAT!

but the delivery is terrible, very hard to pay attention to

“One of the penalties for refusing to participate in politics is that you end up being governed by your inferiors.” Plato

"Doing nothing is the road to serfdom.

“Take back the power centers one by one, exactly as we lost them in the first place.”
Great vedio and call to action.

And never forget, “Humans, despite our artistic pretensions, our sophistication and many accomplishments, owe the fact of our existence to a six-inch layer of topsoil and the fact that it rains.”

This film is one of the most incredible speeches by our dear

G.Edward Griffin.

After I watched part of this the other day, I called and ordered

a dvd of it and also ordered some books from G. Edward Griffin. He has such a gift of explaining to folks.

His books are well written,

Love won! Deliverance from Tyranny is on the way! Col. 2:13-15

The reason I am ordering more books is that

the books I ordered last summer have 'disappeared', which is a Good Thing! It means I have loaned them out!
This time I ordered 2 copies of "The Law" by Bastiat and another copy of "Creature From Jekyll Island" (this is a big, thick book, so not many want to tackle reading it)

I thought of this when I read

Gary North's recent article. Posted this morning but had no takers. http://www.dailypaul.com/node/123340

Thomas Jefferson: “Indeed, I tremble for my country when I reflect that God is just, that His justice cannot sleep forever."

Viva La Revolucion!

Might I suggest

that you edit your thread and change the title to "A letter to Sarah (Palin)?

Betcha you get some takers then.

I read the same article this morning and have been toying with posting it at a Washington site. Gary North is spot on. And what gets forgotten in the Palin bashing (and I am no fan. She needs to figure out who she is and what she stands for...), is that she did do what many have attempted and failed to do in other venues, for many years. She managed to clean house to some degree in Alaska (I know, I know, the house seemed to get messy again real quick).
