Zeitgeist Time 2:02
Zeitgeist is perhaps the most earth shaking and paradigm shattering
film in the conspiracy documentary genre. Part I has created tremendous
controversy because it exposes the false basis of religion, and how the
elites have always used religion to control populations. In particular,
the sacred myths of Christianity are exposed as retreads of many earlier
religious myths, and are linked to sun worship and astrological belief
systems. Part II exposes the myths behind the 911 story portrayed by government
and the mass media. Part III is a breathtakingly powerful discourse on
the criminal basis of the Federal Reserve System and our enslavement through
the bankers' corruption of the monetary system. The film concludes with
an appeal to people to question their paradigms and belief systems, which
is the first step toward defeating the elite's conspiracy against mankind.
The production quality is excellent, and the film is a must see. Some argue
that the contentious subject matter in Part I may distract from the message
of the film. Edited versions that skip Part I can be found for those who
might be disturbed by the subject matter are available from www.onedollardvdproject.com.
America From Freedom to Fascism Time 1:49
This is a professionally done film by the late Hollywood director Aaron
Russo whose credits include the Hollywood hits "Trading Places" and "The
Rose". In fact, AFFTF was shown in select movie theatres across the country,
but predictably only for a very short time. Russo also hosted a weekly
cable TV series "Mad As Hell" where he dealt with the many government intrusions
into our lives. The film begins with a short history of the elite's conspiracy
to saddle the American people with a central bank and an income tax. The
film is done in Michael Moore style, with Russo playing the role of "Average
Joe" while interviewing government officials and random folks on the sidewalk.
Just as it consumes a large portion of our productive lives, the income
tax issue consumes a large portion of the film. Russo defended his obsession
with taxation and the corrupt money system during a Q & A session at
a pre-release screening of the film in Saint Charles, Illinois. He felt
that this was what would grab the attention of most middle class Americans.
But it would have been nice to see some of the other issues get more screen
time, i.e. the militarization of our police, discussion of the increasingly
fascistic laws being passed by Congress, and the new technologies of surveillance
and population control.
Obama Deception Time 1:51
Alex Jones documentary films are legendary and ubiquitous in the truth
movement. Although controversial at times, Jones has matured greatly as
a filmmaker over the years. Unlike the frequently scattershot approach
of earlier films, Obama Deception maintains its focus on the central
topic of the film which is identifying the elitist's power structure. The
film provides damning evidence of politicians at every level being tied
to the CFR, Bilderberg, or Tri-Lateral organizations. Bush's and Obama's
connections to occult groups/secret societies such as Skull and Bones and
Freemasonry complete the sinister picture. The real power behind the throne
pulls the strings of the President and Congress to carry out the plan for
world domination. Jones shows how the agenda for world government and the
loss of our rights and constitutional sovereignty never changes regardless
of whether a Republican or Democrat are in the White House. By staying
carefully non-partisan, the film is useful appealing to folks on the left
or the right. The analysis of the elite's pyramid of control is typically
superficial, as Jones ignores several of the "elephants in the living room".
The negatives in the film are too many scenes of Alex in the streets shouting
through a bullhorn, and too much footage of Jim Tucker in hotel rooms stating
the obvious. As with similar scenes in Jones' previous films, they distract
from the more important issues being discussed.
Our Corrupt Foreign Policy Time 2:02
This DVD is a collection of documentaries available from www.onedollardvdproject.com.
The topics cover all aspects of the ongoing US war against Third World
countries, including the School of the Americas, the Iraqi genocide, Iran-contra,
the Panama invasion, Indonesia/ East Timor and Viet Nam. There is more
than ample evidence of the atrocities committed against civilian populations
in the name of "freedom" and "democracy". Many topics are narrated by different
Hollywood celebrities like Elizabeth Montgomery, Susan Sarandon, and Kris
Kristofferson. There are extended speeches by Philip Agee (CIA) and Ramsey
Clark. Overall the information is good, but marred by the obligatory left-wing
clichés. Particularly annoying is the endless repetition of the
phrase "killing women and children"...does that mean killing adult men
is of no concern? The different narrators all offer the same "feel good"
strategies--calling/writing your Congresscritters or standing in the street
with "peace" symbols and antiwar chants. Rather than exercises in futility,
we need real solutions...this DVD doesn't offer any.
Pretext for the North American Union Time 1:38
This video deals with an important subject for those who worship the
nation-state. Unfortunately for those who have as little use for the USA
as they have for the NAU, the film has little to offer. The entire presentation
uses the film technique of playing video clips in a small window while
scrolling text below, with an American flag as a backdrop. Large sections
of the film are "power point" style, with the narrator reading the text
frame by frame. Unless you are hearing impaired, the technique is very
irritating. For those who make it to the finale, you will be "treated"
to more patriotic drivel and the national anthem...guaranteed to tug at
the heartstrings of all the mindless sheep who consider themselves proud
right-wing conservatives. Suggestions that we should all beg Congress to
stop their plans to steamroll us into world government are laughably naive.
The film has good intentions, but that isn't good enough any more. Instead
of flag waving, the film maker needs to pay attention to the ongoing destruction
of our (so-called) civil liberties in what has become the American police
state. Within the context of the much larger conspiracy, the subject of
the New World Order empire rearranging its administrative network over
the North American region is merely a footnote.
