An amazing story. This was

An amazing story. This is probably the clearest picture I've seen painted of the world we actually live in. I had read and seen so much before and since reading this book, and it fits in line with all I know to be true. So while I can understand skepticism to the story, I still feel it allows us to clearly see and understand what many of us already were thinking anyway.

Like others, though, I can't understand why these things are allowed. If it's so easy to murder a million Iraqis for personal gain, why is this one man allowed to potentially sabotage it?

Also, though perhaps it's completely unrelated to his former occupation, how can a man with such deep knowledge of the inner workings fall for the global warming hoax?

i've heard of this guy and

i've heard of this guy and he's one of those new age con-artists.
he gives talks to mostly leftist brain dead sheep.

there's just too many questions that arises from his stores. one of which you should ask yourself.. what does the nsa, an agency that specializes in electronic code-breaking, have anything to do with toppling governments?

I watched several of his youtubes and read his 'blog'--

I haven't read the book, because it costs $ to buy--

I do believe he is telling the truth, but I wonder why *they* have let him tell the truth--

why do some people disappear when they tell the truth and others not?

I know many of *us* have had the same question about Dr. Paul and the Judge, etc.--

and Ventura--

but this guy is not just teaching constitutional principles like Dr. Paul (who has gotten away with it, because he's been labelled a 'kook', I believe)--

he's revealing the inner workings--

why have *they* allowed him to do this?

it's hard to be awake; it's easier to dream--

Instrumental in my waking up experience...

I heard an interview with this man on a radical liberal radio station while I was starting to be aroused from my sleep. It really opened my eyes. I always wanted to read his book and now to find this here is some kind of coming full circle!

Freedom brings people together!

Bump for eye opening info!


Excellent information

I have several of John's books. Although his solutions are way to liberal for me, he does reveal what started shortly after WWII with our foreign policy disasters. Everything since has been nothing but blowback. Why John Perkins is a tree hugging liberal and not a libertarian is beyond me, but at least he knows where the real problems exist.

Just one thing....

this guy goes from being an economic hitman and then decides to reveal it...and write books and host spiritual vacation tours and all the sudden he's up there with the Lord Jesus?

Sorry but accolades aren't what I have for this man. He's an admitted criminal and no leader. I don't care how much sanctimonious crap he lays on. But hey, people like him make money either way. Maybe you can be contrite and line your pockets at the same time.

There is nothing strange about having a bar of soap in your right pocket, it's just what's happening.

I'm happy this made the front page

Thanks MOD's :) I was really hoping this would make it up for people to see.

Best video ever

The world needs to see this.

"Leaders aren't corrupt,

someone else has to corrupt them"...
Get real.

You should watch these too...

I will check them out


Another amazing book is "Family Of Secrets"

Below is a podcast from Lew Rockwell interviewing its author, Russ Baker. The book is about the Bush family.



Looks like i am going to do some book shopping.

That is an excellent book that all should read. My only

critique(minor) is that Bakers bias toward the D brand of the phoney left/right theater shows through. That was the sense I got.

Related: Love Jesse Ventura's voicing what is not supposed to be voiced but get the same D bias sense in his writing. Probably due to the Minn background.

In neither case is it a big deal.

P.S. Russ Baker has done long interviews on Coast to Coast which can easily be found on YOUTUBE.

"You are a den of vipers and thieves."

I mean to rout you out!

Yep, I've Listened To Them

The Dave Emory one is really long (though it really couldn't be long enough as far as I'm concerned).

I'm not sure what you mean by your comment that "my only critique(minor) is that Bakers bias toward the D brand of the phoney left/right theater shows through."

What is the "D brand"? And what is the overall criticism? I'm a big fan of Russ Baker so I'm definitely curious to hear this.

It is my contention that the political landscape is dominated by

shrill partisanship that is created, controlled, driven by those that have no interest in partisanship other than a tool to divide and conquer the masses and manipulate the masses for unstated longer term agendas. That agenda can be summed up as the very few with tremendous power, maintain/expand that power and use it for their self-serving interests while hiding that such a thing is occurring.

Even many very intelligent and well meaning individuals, Russ Baker being one, are fooled by the very powerful but totally manufactured and fake partisanship/pick a brand theater. I sense a D brand bias from Russ but his exposing the R side corruption of what is in fact a one headed monster(that he believes is two opposing forces in honest opposition) is still of great benefit.

The only downside of the credibility of people like RB buying into the false divide is that it helps perpetuate the perception that there is a true divide. I will take wide exposure of critical info however I can get it though.

Hope that clarifies my comment, if not let me know and thanks for asking.

Reading that book now -- it's

Reading that book now -- it's excellent. Recommended by my local librarian!

Amazing book.

His former boss confirmed his story, but I think disagreed with how he characterized it. Then that news article was deleted and things like Wikipedia would make you believe that he exaggerated all this for a book. But the policies he talked about are well known and public facts. And the types of discussions he claims he had, certainly take place.

Amazing book.

Why Zeitgeist is so controversial

They use a classic method of deception - they take 95% truth and use it to sell you on their 5% solution which is really just Agenda 21 in a different colored wrapper.

Apparently they blew it when they came out with the addendum because the fraud was made so blatantly in that film from what I've read...

even Teddy Roosevelt disdained pandas

I tell people to ONLY watch the first 50 minutes.

I tell people to ONLY watch the first 50 minutes of the ADDENDUM. I think they do a good job explaining the Federal Reserve and Confessions of an Economic Hit Man.

Skip the 2nd half!!

I've been reading this the past 2 days

Excellent book. It's crazy how the world *really* works. I'll definitely watch that video after I'm done w/ the book. I started watching actually and it's tempting to just watch the whole thing.


Don't let Jack Hunter hear about this.
