Holy Smokes. The Shining is About The Federal Reserve!

Fascinating. I've watched these videos through once so far and Im still trying to put things together. Turns out that Stanley Kubrick's personal views of politics mirrors a lot of what we believe. This is Part 3 of his analysis which includes the Gold Room. Please watch the entire series. I'm sure many of us would enjoy this. Please vote up. Enjoy the goose bumps.

I read the book because of this post.

I had a copy to sell and decided to read it - about the fed? A beast in the woods that must be fed? Could be.

Scary book.

Don't feed the pandas. Ever.

Ha! Searched for this on yahoo... DailyPaul already covered it..

BUMP! For Halloween season and relevance still......

Watched The Shining again last night, scarier than ever... Kubrick is a master... lots of hidden symbolism I keep picking up on... On top of being abut the Federal Reserve, it is also about the Satanic lifestyle of the power elite.

Above vid doesn't work. :(

this is best I could find for now:


Are you a POT or a PET - Person Embracing Tyranny?

Watched the vids. Now I'm reading the book.

On page 319 - 3/4 of the way through. Never saw the movie, only the youtube videos.

Intense psychological drama - glad to take the time to delve into some 'fiction' because I'm learning a lot - about myself, others, blah bla bla...


Don't feed the pandas. Ever.

Timberline Lodge is in Oregon

Interesting narrative, however I wonder how many other "facts" are incorrect; such as the claim that Timberline Lodge is in Colorado, when it is in fact on Mt. Hood, Oregon. Oh well. Ron Paul is still right about auditing Fort Knox.

RON PAUL is the GOLD STANDARD of politics, his value never changes; it's tied to the CONSTITUTION!

read that once before

very good analysis. 100x stronger than the one in this video.

There's obviously different

There's obviously different messages in the movie. Its rather narrow minded to dictate that it's all about the moon landing.

This is a stretch

I find these coincidences to be interesting but just that: coincidences. None of the secret tidbits exposed in this video are substantive in any way, and I seriously doubt those are Woodrow Wilson's family members. Kubrick was a brilliant filmmaker, but I don't think this bears to light any hidden message about the Federal Reserve Act.

Is there really a Santa Claus (your DailyPaul potrait)?

Santa Claus (aka: WanderingHeath. Shall we believe in you? Others may need to stretch.

Stanley Kubrick was certainly the primary film cinematographer for the Apollo mission to where ever the NASA narrative told him to go. Desert(training missions). Air Force bomber (weightless flight simulators; aka big dive bomber). "A mid summer night's dream"

  • 1968. Stanley Kubrick releases 2001, Space Odyssey" in color. Traveled much farther. Cost: $5 theater ticket.
  • 1969. "Odd Lunacy: Apollo Moons... Kubrick final cut. Cost: Millions of Dollars.
  • Kennedy Space [Odyssey] Center, July 16, 1969. Apollo liftoff.
  • Desert, July 20, 1969. Neil Armstrong exits Lunar Landing Module
  • Pacific Ocean, July 24, 1969. Apollo Capsule splashdown, 912 miles SW of Hawaii.

Virginia, there is a Santa Claus. Now, for the rest of you? ....

It's actually Lysander Spooner in a Santa outfit...

Yeah, I don't really know much about this whole Kubrick conspiracy, but I was just commenting about this one video that's posted above - which is NOT very compelling evidence. I don't know diddly about this Apollo Kubrick connection, because, again, it wasn't in the video above.

So, Merry Christmas. Enjoy the well wrapped confirmation bias Santa Spooner left for you under the tree of liberty.

I really don't know much about the "Kubrick conspiracy" either.

Kubrick conspiracy fact is another matter. One should not expect Lysander Spooner nor me to believe any government landed their representative on our moon.

From what I remember, Lysander Spooner (portrait seems to be the original one that someone added Santa's uniform too) was an honorable man. Against all evil forces, he taught liberty & justice for all. Not taken by wicked conspiracy. Thanks for the memory.

Lysander Spooner (1808-1887) was a legal theorist, abolitionist, and radical individualist who started his own mail company in order to challenge the monopoly held by the US government. He wrote on the constitutionality of slavery, natural law, trial by jury, intellectual property, paper currency, and banking.

Best regards to Mr Spooner & you,

Someone randomly selecting an

Someone randomly selecting an older picture that happens to have several FR governors in it must happen all of the time.

Is that even accurate?

Are you sure? I didn't see any evidence presented in the video above that made that clear at all. This guy just made a claim these were the family members of Woodrow Wilson, then showed some pictures of their supposed family that may or may not be the people pictured. If there's a piece of evidence I'm missing, please illuminate me.

More about the picture:

The final photo of the film features the date 1921. I’ve searched around a great deal to find historical events related to that year and I’ve only found two things that resonate with the other themes described in this analysis. The first is that 1921 was the year of retirement from office for the US president Woodrow Wilson, who handed over all control of America’s banking systems to the privately owned Federal Reserve. The result of this was America’s abandonment of the gold standard, the Wall Street crash of 1929 and the great depression. Note that the exact date of retirement of Wilson was March 4th 1921 and the date July 4th 1921 is shown in the photo of Jack waving goodbye to us. Possibly significant concerning the 4th of July is this speech given by Woodrow Wilson on 4th July 1914 at Independence Hall. In it Wilson very cleverly dismisses the Declaration of Independence as an irrelevant historical document, no longer applicable to America.

1921 is the year oft cited by Dr Ron Paul as a short recession.

Recall the magician approach a table setting for dinner w/ a white linen tablecloth. The audience figets, as they have seen this magic show time & time again; yet, they dare not miss anything.

Magician: The tablecloth represents our "world economy." [Whoosh!]

The whole world economy may disappear with a whisk; yet, the China still remains. Though I myself am a magician, I do not know how those that whisked away our economy in 2007... did their craft... Money & banking w/o anything but credit? ... I don't know who did it. More puzzling:

    Where, oh where has our little economy gone?
    Where oh where could it be?
    With one option cut short.
    The other cut long...
    Where oh where could it be?

Where could they hide the whole dang world economy?

pretty weak evidence

the cash in his hand + the same 'gold' room is seen as smaller black/white photos when he isn't hallucinating?

the argument that it was about the apollo mission is much much stronger.

I think I'll be re-watching the Shining

The Fed: Loaning you blind, since 1913.

Federal Reserve Exposed:
Speeches. - Louis T. McFadden, US Congressman

... Do we dare to admit that everything which has happened to America since the Whiskey Rebellion has been the result of foreign' influences, of alien conspiracies carried out through fetid and subterranean corridors of power, the work of the government that dares not speak its name. The Civil War, World War I, the Great Depression, World War II, these were events which were not desired by the American people, they were not planned by the American people, they were not voluntarily entered into by the American people. But all of these events were the result of the planning of men who have no addresses, no fixed homes, no substantial loyalties save only to their own 'criminal interests. These are men who in healthier times were sent to the gibbet, but today we make them presidents of our banks and universities, and we watch appalled at the chaos and destruction which ensues from their every act.

Let us remember that for ten years, Congressman McFadden had been Chairman of the House Banking and Currency Committee. While exercising the duties of this position he exposed some of the greatest crimes of the century, including his stinging indictment of the Board of Governors of the Federal Reserve System in which he charged them "with having treasonably conspired to destroy constitutional government in the United States." Because of these exposures, Louis T. McFadden had un-, leashed' the full power of the international criminals against him. When he made these speeches, he was alone. He had nothing to look forward to save his own political demise. The power and pelf of his enemies was brought to bear and the political life of this great servant of the people was terminated in the November 1934 elections held in the 15th Congressional District of Pennsylvania.

Thus these speeches are the personal signature of a great man, a hero fighting to the death, surrounded but never thinking of surrender, the final gesture of a man we should all honor and emulate, an American worthy of the name.

-- Louis T. McFadden, US Congressman

The Shining is about the Moon

This movie is, without a doubt, Kubrick's confession that he filmed the first lunar landings. His wife and best friend corroborated this publicly.

The Fed enables whom ever they wish. Stanley Kubrick was hired.

Stanley Kubrick has my admiration for his creative genius with film & telling an epic tale.

He has been paid handsomely for his craft. He was paid well ("millions & millions") for his magnificent camera work that mooned the world. He was paid to show the narrative written by NASA to the world. He used his NASA contract "legal tender" payments to create film documentary evidence that was good enough to fool the world that Apollo sent men (That is human imagination) to the Moon. (They actually filmed near Hollywood, the Nevada Desert, the belly of Air Force bombers, Navy ships, etc.) The Moon Landing was filmed in (1969).

Russia asked for & received billions & billions of Dollars (hush money) to pay for supposed continental grain harvest failure. What you believe is what you see.

Was it the Sea of Tranquility or the Sea of Liquidity? That is a question of faith & confidence. What you believe is what you see. (Or do I have it back words?).

Simultaneously, Stanley Kubrick created the fabulous film, 2001, Space Odyssey (1968). Cost less ($5 theater ticket). Traveled farther (The Moon was a weigh station). The Monolith was the .... Wait (Better you see the theater version of this tale.).
The Fed is the conduit. It granted itself the privilege of passing out our nations "legal tender." The point is documented in
FEDERAL RESERVE ACT, 1913 (preamble shown here; full text at the link)

    An Act to provide for the establishment of Federal reserve banks, to furnish an elastic currency, to afford [make-believe] means of rediscounting commercial paper, to establish a more effective supervision of banking in the United States, and for other purposes.

    That links to: "The Federal Reserve Act, 1913 itself. Reading the act's first sentence is telling enough.
