The American Dream Film, Orwell and Huxley, Meet John Doe

The American Dream
http://www.theamericandreamfilm.com/
The AMERICAN DREAM is a 30 minute animated film that shows you how you’ve been scammed by the most basic elements of our government system. All of us Americans strive for the American Dream, and this film shows you why your dream is getting farther and farther away. Do you know how your money is created? Or how banking works? Why did housing prices skyrocket and then plunge? Do you really know what the Federal Reserve System is and how it affects you every single day? THE AMERICAN DREAM takes an entertaining but hard hitting look at how the problems we have today are nothing new,
and why leaders throughout our history have warned us and fought against the current type of financial system we have in America today. You will be challenged to investigate some very entrenched and powerful institutions in this nation, and hopefully encouraged to help get our nation back on track.

Introducing ‘The American Dream’: Liberty is My Cinematic Mission Statement
12-13-10
Let’s first take a look at what makes good media. Regardless of the format, whether narrative or documentary, the first and foremost thing people want is a good story. Telling a good story and crafting interesting characters is a talent.
Film-making is not something that everyone is going to be able to do well. I say this not to discourage anyone but more to identify what the real issue is. The biggest strength of the liberal voice is that they use the elements of story-telling far better. They know that stories of struggle and triumph are far more engaging than messages of statistics and fear. I am convinced a lot of liberals would like the story of free markets and small government a lot better if we
did a better job telling it.
I am hopeful that all the film-makers out there will check out what we did and have the same reaction. It’s not the Democrats versus the Republicans, that is but a distraction. The real debate is liberty, freedom and prosperity vs. control and poverty. Once you get that its no longer about party we can put that “US” Vs “THEM” aside and start making films that convey the message of liberty being the greatest mission statement a nation has ever had.

2011: A Brave New Dystopia
12-27-10
Would we be, as Orwell wrote, dominated by a repressive surveillance and security state that used crude and violent forms of control? Or would we be, as Huxley envisioned, entranced by entertainment and spectacle, captivated by technology and seduced by profligate consumption to embrace our own oppression? It turns out Orwell and Huxley were both right. Huxley saw the first stage of our enslavement. Orwell saw the second.
Orwell warned of a world where books were banned. Huxley warned of a world where no one wanted to read books. Orwell warned of a state of permanent war and fear. Huxley warned of a culture diverted by mindless pleasure. Orwell warned of a state where every conversation and thought was monitored and dissent was brutally punished. Huxley warned of a state where a population, preoccupied by trivia and gossip, no longer cared about truth or information. Orwell saw us frightened into submission. Huxley saw us seduced into submission. But Huxley, we are discovering, was merely the prelude to Orwell. Huxley understood the process by which we would be complicit in our own enslavement. Orwell understood the enslavement. Now that the corporate coup is over, we stand naked and defenseless.

Meet John Doe (1941)
As a parting shot, fired reporter Ann Mitchell prints a fake letter from unemployed “John Doe,” who threatens
suicide in protest of social ills. The paper is forced to rehire Ann and hires John Willoughby to impersonate “Doe.”
Ann and her bosses cynically milk the story for all it’s worth, until the made-up “John Doe” philosophy starts a whole
political movement. At last everyone, even Ann, takes her creation seriously…but publisher D.B. Norton has a
secret plan. – IMDB.com

Martial Law: UK Police Chief Mulls Banning Protests
12-15-10
UK police chief Sir Paul Stephenson is considering whether to ask the British government to ban protest marches altogether in response to last week’s student riots, a move that would place Britain under a de facto state of martial
law.
Although the establishment media in Britain dutifully blamed the protesters for the violent scenes witnessed during the demonstrations, it later emerged that police had been behind a number of provocations that caused the running street battles,..
Stephenson is considering whether to use the Public Order Act in an attempt to ban marches, despite acknowledging the fact that such a move could only exacerbate the situation. Other proposals are to use water cannons to disperse
demonstrators, as well as snatch squads that would literally abduct so-called “trouble-makers” off the streets.

Google: We’ll find info before you know you need it
12-10-10
Google is working on a service that finds information before a user has even started looking for it.
Forget Google Instant, this is about pre-emptively pushing data at users before they know they need it, said Marissa Mayer, Google’s VP of geographic and local services, who was speaking at the LeWeb internet conference in Paris this
week.
Mayer said Google is looking at what she called “contextual discovery” as a way to evolve search – pushing information out to people before they’ve started to look for it, based on factors such as their web browsing history or current location.

iPhone snitch network launched
12-13-10
A new iPhone App with the misleading name ‘PatriotApp’ attempts to draw on the power of the patriot movement, turning smartphone users into a gigantic snitch network.
An app like this is meant to solidify the climate of fear in which our leaders want us to exist. The threat of terrorism must be palpable in order for the ‘War on Terror’ to be justified and to validate all the extreme measures instituted in its name.

Kosovo PM is head of human organ and arms ring, Council of Europe reports
12-14-10
Kosovo’s prime minister is the head of a “mafia-like” Albanian group responsible for smuggling weapons, drugs and human organs through eastern Europe, according to a Council of Europe inquiry report on organised crime.
The report states: “As and when the transplant surgeons were confirmed to be in position and ready to operate, the captives were brought out of the ‘safe house’ individually, summarily executed by a KLA gunman, and their corpses
transported swiftly to the operating clinic.”

In praise of Junk silver
12-14-10
Oh, you do know that only dimes (originally dismes), quarters, halves and dollars (originally eagles) minted in 1964 or before are silver, don’t you?
Nickels dated 2010 and before are an alloy containing 25% nickel, currently valued at 6¢. They may be the small change of the future. Pennies dated 1982 and before contain 95% copper, they’re going for around 2.5¢ at present.

30 Reasons Why People Should Be Getting Really Nervous About The State Of The U.S. Economy
10-31-10
The same long-term trends that were ripping the U.S. financial system apart a month or two ago are still continuing to do so.  Millions upon millions of American families are still deeply suffering.  So exactly what in the world is going on here?  Well, this is what is known as a “sucker’s rally”.  Those on the inside know better than to throw money at this market.  In fact, corporate insiders are now selling off stock so fast you would think it is going out of style.
Meanwhile, hordes of innocent rubes are jumping back into the stock market thinking that it is the perfect time to get in.
The truth is that these “good times” are only temporary.  Don’t get used to them.  The following are 30 reasons why people should be getting really, really nervous about the state of the U.S. economy….

Bernanke’s QE 2 Will Sink Just Like The Titanic
10-29-10
Their stated goal is to boost the economy and create jobs. However, since economic growth cannot be achieved by printing money, their QE 2 will sink just as surely as the Titanic.
Worse still, by keeping rates too low, the Fed has enabled the US government to grow significantly larger than it otherwise could had its borrowing been restrained by higher rates. Absent these low rates, Washington likely wouldn’t
have passed expensive new healthcare and financial regulation reforms; they would be too busy trying to keep the lights on in the Capitol.
Higher interest rates and a commitment from the Fed to refrain from purchasing Treasury debt would force the government to dramatically reduce spending. If we combine less government spending with fewer regulations, reform our tax code in a way that stops punishing savings and investment, stop all government subsidies for real estate so that prices can fall to affordable levels, and allow all insolvent entities to fail, then a real recovery will take hold.

Why Is Indiana Putting Armed Security Guards Into 36 Unemployment Offices Across The State?
10-31-10
Did you ever think that things in America would get so bad that we would need to put armed guards into our unemployment offices?  Well, that is exactly what is happening in Indiana.
So is America going to become an armed camp where the people and institutions with money are protected by armed guards from the hordes of frustrated unemployed workers that can’t feed themselves or their families?
Americans are certainly not in a good mood about the economy.  According to a recent poll conducted by CNBC, 92 percent of Americans believe that the performance of the U.S. economy is either “fair” or “poor”.

Foreclosuregate Explained: Big Banks on the Brink
10-28-10
Banks are in a big pickle. If they can prove they own the title to properties they want to foreclose on, they are liable to the IRS for unpaid taxes and penalties. If they don’t, the are liable to be sued by bond holders for lack of due diligence in the bundled mortgages they sold to investors.
A Real Estate Mortgage Investment Conduit is what the name implies – an empty pipe that allows banks to collect fees as trustees of MBS’ without owning any of the assets that back them. It also allows them to avoid taxes and title transfer fees since they only pass through titles to property held as collateral for the MBS’ they sell.

New Hidden Missile System Unknown To Feds
10-29-10
The promotional video for the Club K Missile system is part of the marketing campaign by a private, Russian-based weapons manufacturer. The cruise missile system is hidden in a 40-foot shipping container. It can fire four long range satellite-guided missiles from a ship, train or tractor-trailer.
“To look at an entire weapons system that can be put on a cargo ship and deployed is frightening,” said Brent Brown an international security consultant, “It is a pretty devastating piece of technology that could have all kinds of collateral damange.”

Winter Climate and Winter Economy

The Super La Nina and the Coming Winter
10-25-10
This La Nina appears to be special, at least so far. It is well on its way to being the strongest of these events since the super La Nina of 1955-1956. During that powerful La Nina that lasted two years, the global average temperature fell
nearly one degree Fahrenheit from 1953 to 1956.
The current La Nina is coming on stronger than any in decades. The world is demanding more and more energy to fuel growth even in hard economic times. This winter may test the world energy supplier’s ability to provide it. The resulting increase in demand could produce a spike in energy costs. This could bring more hardship to people who are suffering through this long and deep recession. It remains to be seen if this La Nina equals or exceeds the super La
Nina of 1955/56. Right now El Nino’s colder sister is on the fast track to generate more temperature extremes and a very cold winter in some parts of the world.

Tony Robbins Economic Warning
08-25-10
Editors Note: This is my synapsis of two videos put out by Tony Robbins.
Mr. Robbins has had the ability to work with many financial experts over the years. With that relationship has come the benefit of their foresight into financial situations many of us do not have. Robbins this past August put out a 25 minute message of economic warning. Listed below are warning signs he feels are important enough for one toconsider when evaluating their positions where their money is involved.
1 Record unemployment. Average unemployment is about 35.2 weeks or 8.75 months.
2 Consumer confidence is lowest since fall 2008 and 9-11.
3 Demand for credit is shrinking by the largest percent in 60 years. People have/are paying back more than borrowed right now by 200%.
4 Real estate: lowest rates ever, 4.5%, banks selling more than builders. 68% drop in new mortgages since 2005.
5 Banks: People not borrowing.
6 Businesses not spending
7 Fed has interest rates low, but people are not borrowing.
We are in a credit detox

Dollar at Risk of Becoming ‘Toxic Waste’: Charts
10-25-10
“If the (dollar index) takes out the low that was made roughly a year ago I really think that will not only encourage more sales, it will cause a little bit of minor panic,” Griffiths said. “A year ago it was deemed too cheap, if it goes any lower than that it’s actually become toxic waste.”
Typically the major stock markets see a seasonal decline in September, but this year the month saw the markets rise strongly.
The seasonal upswing should add to any positive momentum being generated by expectations of further monetary easing from the Federal Reserve, Griffiths said.

Willem Buiter: The US Must Prepare For Savage Austerity
10-21-10
In an interview with Tom Keene yesterday, Citi strategist Willem Buiter, alongside Howard Davies chairman of the London School of Economics, said that “savage austerity” is in the US’ future. “The only question was really the timing and the composition.”
Too bad that even the possibility of actual austerity in the US would result with riots so severe it will make the ongoing economic freeze in France seem like the peak of Chinese economic growth.

Prospect of Civil War in U.S. – French Anarchists – Americans Buying Guns – New FSA/HSA Rules – Silver vs. Cold

Time Magazine: Prospect Of Civil War In U.S. “Doesn’t Seem That Far Fetched”
10-20-10
With protesters in France entering a seventh day of strikes and demonstrations against draconian austerity measures, many political observers in the U.S. are now wondering how long it will be before similar scenes unfold on American streets, with even Time Magazine now conceding that the prospect of a civil war in the States “doesn’t seem that far fetched”.
The question remains – how will Americans react if the Obama administration pushes ahead with its plan to seize all private 401(k) pensions, which will be swallowed up by the Social Security Administration under the banner of mandatory Guaranteed Retirement Accounts? How will Americans react to the upcoming announcement that the Federal Reserve will further eviscerate the value of the dollar by purchasing junk assets from big banks at exorbitant prices with money printed out of thin air?

Violent Anarchists Help French Authorities Crush Pension Protests
10-20-10
As we pointed out yesterday, there are two different groups protesting in France at the moment, those who are having a genuine impact, the union workers who have shut down entire areas of the country with fuel blockades, go-slow protests and picket lines and in doing so garnered the support of 70% of the country, and the idiot rent-a-mob anarcho-communists who will seize on any opportunity to run rampage in the deluded belief that they are standing up to the evil forces of capitalism by throwing a rock at a Starbucks window.
We have documented numerous different examples where the black bloc anarchists were completely infiltrated by the authorities to provide a pretext for a police state crackdown.
Every time a car is set alight or a shop window shattered, the state gets another opportunity to castigate the entire protest movement as a hoard of violent extremists, and with it meter out a more brutal and oppressive police response.

Americans Buying Guns In Preparation For Civil Unrest
10-18-10
Americans are acquiring guns, silver and food stamps at record levels in reaction to the crumbling economy, trends indicative of a fearful public who are struggling financially and preparing for potential mass civil unrest in the aftermath of a total economic collapse.
Interest in silver coins is also surging, with Americans looking for more affordable ways to protect their increasingly devalued dollar savings with many unable to afford soar away gold prices.

Under the new health care law, consumers using workplace pre-tax health savings accounts will soon need a doctor’s note to pay for Tylenol and an estimated 15,000 other over-the-counter drugs.
The IRS says any money removed from HSA accounts to pay for medical expenses bought without a prescription will be included as taxable income and subject to an additional tax of 20 percent.

Real Numbers = Great Depression, French Petro Panic, Silver and Rice, Manganese Adverse Affects

Print Edition

Behind federal government’s lies: real economic numbers prove US in Great Depression
10-18-10
Much of the major news media—as many Americans have finally come to realize—is in collusion with governments at the federal, state and county level. Gone are the days when journalists were true watchdogs over the public till and
promoters of good government. Most news organizations have become corporate organs attached to the government at the hip, and citizens have paid a dear price for this unholy alliance.

Meanwhile the federal government and the Federal Reserve both claim that inflation is virtually non-existent. They have denied any increase in Social Security benefits to retirees based on numbers that both know are fraudulent.

The real seasonally adjusted unemployment rate today hovers at 23 percent.

The horrifying truth is that since 1985 the dollar has lost about 50 percent of its value.

During 2009 the GDP collapsed by a negative 6 percent and even now is running at a negative 1 to 2 percent.

Panic at the pumps: French motorists swamp petrol stations as fuel supplies to main Paris airport cut off
10-15-10
Striking workers have closed down 11 out of France’s 12 plants, sparking fears that the petrol pumps will run dry.
Union bosses yesterday called for a nationwide strike on Tuesday, hoping to galvanise France into a drawn-out confrontation with the government over a proposed rise in the retirement age.
Transport minister Dominque Bussereau tried to reassure drivers that fuel would not run out – but petrol station owners said his message only sent more people rushing to fill up.
Meanwhile, 38 fuel tankers and 11 gas transporters are currently sitting off the Mediterranean coast, unable to offload cargos of crude oil to the biggest refineries around Marseilles.

Jim Rogers says stock up on silver chopsticks and rice
10-10-10
Turning his attention to currencies, Rogers said: “Right now everyone is pessimistic about the dollar, including me, so I wouldn’t sell the dollar right now. In the long run though he believes the dollar will keep going down.
“I am pessimistic long-term but I found in life it’s better being a contrarian than not be,” he said.
Speaking in a Teck Ticker interview on Wednesday, Rogers said: “Central banks around the world are going to print money till we run out of trees”. Investors should protect themselves with real assets, he argues.
“Buy yourself some silver chopsticks or some silver cutlery, and buy yourself some rice, stock up with rice and you will be very rich in 5 or 10 years,” Rogers told India’s Economic Times.

The Second American Revolution

August 10, 2009
Gerald Celente. Don’t know him. Look him up. His Trends Research Institute has predicted so many events in the last 20 years that he is worth listening to. The recent re-interest in Tea Parties has not gone unnoticed. Obamacare has been taking the brunt of this frustration of the American people. This frustration covers both parties, or as many think, our One Party system. Those politicians who are listening to their voters are being able to speak, while those who are not are getting booed out of the building. Contrary to controlled media stories, Tea Party people are concerned nonviolent Americans who want their country back.

Swine Flu Vaccines Contain LIVE H1N1 VIRUS!

August 3, 2009
It’s not a typo, the main ingredient in the GlaxoSmithKline and Novartis vaccines contain a LIVE VIRUS, an attenuated virus meaning it’s a weakened form of the swine flu virus. Attenuated vaccines can be deadly and cause virus shedding, when a person is injected with an attenuated live virus the organism moves through the human body possibly infecting the host and then exiting through the feces, mucous membranes and saliva glands of the inoculated person. This is called ‘virus shedding’ and can last for weeks.

Bob Chapman on gold, silver, a bank holiday and the elite

Daily Bell: Regardless of what Western intel can or can’t do, the system is obviously under stress. You’ve said your sources predict a bank holiday. Can you expand?
Chapman: An investigative source as well as three well-placed subscribers told me that a number of US Embassies were being instructed to purchase local currencies. That can only mean that government believes that foreign sources may not accept US dollars as happened in early 2008.
Daily Bell: They would be stockpiling currency to ensure local liquidity?
Chapman: It is not simply an exercise in embassy self-protection. My sources believe that this would be caused by a plunge in the dollar and perhaps even a short bank holiday as a training exercise for a bigger, longer holiday later.

Capricorn One & Network two films to revisit

If you have never seen the mid 1970’s movies Capricorn One or Network, may I suggest doing so sooner than later. Capricorn One is the story of a failing space agency’s Mars landing hoax to keep the funding coming. The astronauts’ families are used to get them to cooperate with the hoax. One of the best illustrations of compartmentalization as a technician discovers an anomaly and one person in the know works to continue the cover-up.
In the film Network you get the famous line “I’m as mad as hell, and I’m not gonna take this anymore!” The better nugget in the film is Ned Beatty’s “Corporate Cosmology” speech. Sure films like Enemy of the State are more action packed and look slicker, but you just can’t beat O.J.’s early work and classic quotable movie lines.

These films in part or whole can be found on your favorite video search engine.

Do Seed Companies Control GM Crop Research?

Unfortunately, it is impossible to verify that genetically modified crops perform as advertised. That is because agritech companies have given themselves veto power over the work of independent researchers.
It would be chilling enough if any other type of company were able to prevent independent researchers from testing its wares and reporting what they find—imagine car companies trying to quash head-to-head model comparisons done by Consumer Reports, for example. But when scientists are prevented from examining the raw ingredients in our nation’s food supply or from testing the plant material that covers a large portion of the country’s agricultural land, the restrictions on free inquiry become dangerous.
