G. Edward Griffin (born 7 November 1931) is an American political commentator, writer and documentary filmmaker. He has been involved as a founder and leader of a number of organizations in health, media, and politics of which the most prominent is American Media and Freedom Force International.



[edit] Biography

Griffin graduated from the University of Michigan with a major in speech and communications, and also attended the College for Financial Planning in Denver, Colorado where he obtained a Certified Financial Planner designation in 1989.

[edit] Author and film producer

As the President of American Media, a publishing and video production company in southern California, and as the founder and creator of the website Reality Zone, Griffin has published several books including The Creature from Jekyll Island and A World Without Cancer: The Story of Vitamin B17 as well as the video Capitalist Conspiracy.

[edit] Social activism

Griffin has served on the board of directors of the National Health Federation and the International Association of Cancer Victors and Friends. [1]. In December 1976 he founded the Cancer Cure Foundation.[2] a non-profit organization dedicated to research and education in alternative cancer therapies of which he is currently president [3].

Griffin received the Telly Award for excellence in television production.[4]

Griffin was socially significant for being one of the first public and media proponents of the now controversial natural alternative cancer therapy based on laetrile or Amygdalin, which is the subject of his book A World Without Cancer and the documentary of the same name.

[edit] The Coalition for Visible Ballots

Griffin is one of the founding coalition members of the The Coalition for Visible Ballots, a single issue group with the long-term goal to eliminate invisible ballots.

We at the Coalition for Visible Ballots believe that the only way to restore fair and honest elections to our country is to set aside ALL machines, including electronic of any type, touch screen, optical scan counters--and use PAPER BALLOTS, HAND-COUNTED IN PUBLIC VIEW.[5]

To this end he co-produced the film Invisible Ballots: A Temptation for Electronic Vote Fraud.

[edit] Freedom Force International

In 2002, Griffin founded Freedom Force International, an organization with members in countries across the world. Freedom Force International has an unusual membership fee structure: there are dues-paying members and non-dues-paying members. Mr. Griffin believes that such an organization should not require members to pay dues. In order to fund operations, however, certain bonuses are awarded to members who elect to pay dues. Until recently, the minimum monthly membership due was based on one ounce of silver.

A Revolutionary Train of Thought

A Revolutionary Train of Thought

from a Marine:

This is long.. but every word is from the heart.

I've spent the last 25 years of my life waiting for things to change for the better. They have not. In fact, things have only become worse. You all know exactly where I'm coming from.

Year by year, the American people are picked apart, lied to, robbed, enslaved and have had their Constitutional rights systematically stolen.

I'm a U.S. Marine. I've been saying for over two decades that a revolution is coming - and I didn't mean the one we have here. I mean a bloody one. A revolution where my fellow Americans finally reach the melting point, when former and currently active military join together to take the country back by force. Where the common citizen is finally asked, "Will you take up arms to regain your rights?".

Now I see differently. In the past months I have been given an entirely different outlook on the future. I see my fellow citizens, people with or without military backgrounds or affiliations to compel them to do so, joining the ranks of this freedom revolution.

As a person with a military background, if I look at this logistically there is no way to beat it. Armies need commanders, soldiers need orders, troops need training and supplies. But more importantly, in a time of conflict, those soldiers need a target to hit.

This revolution has to be the worst fear of anyone who would think to oppose it. It has no 'leaders'. It has no tactical disadvantages to exploit. You cant point a gun at an idea. You can"t put crosshairs on principles. This revolution can continue gaining momentum and influence, members and followers, attention and coverage without a 'voice' to do it with.

I'm reminded of the masked faces in 'V', standing together outside parliment (ok, it's a movie, but it fits here). None of those people spoke a single word. They had no faces. They had no speaches. They had no 'disobedient nature' about them at all. Yet anyone who watched that movie knew exactly what they were saying - and could almost feel the influence of that group in the air.

Yes, that was fictional, but the 'feeling' provided by that scene is the same thing I get when I work toward the same goals that all of you are working toward - freedom and liberty the way it SHOULD be.

You cannot put a gag on the truth. You can try, and if those attempting to spread that truth are few, you may succeed. But when you've got millions already, and numbers growing by the tens of thousands on a continual basis, it is no longer possible.

An author once wrote; "There is no such thing as art, because art is mankind's attempt at holding a mirror up to either nature or imagination - and there isn't a mirror big enough to do that". In that same context - there is no 'gag' big enough.

The mirror, in our case, is the shroud of doubt that the powers that be, mainstream media and naysayers would try to cover us with. It is the veil of propoganda and disgregard that is draped across the televisions, newspapers, magazines and airwaves of the world, used to keep the population from hearing the message.

But the message is quickly becoming to vast, too loud, too obvious and too thought provoking for these would-be oppressors to contain any longer. The power of the truth, the power of right, and the power of true patriotism are far greater than any amount of money, bandwidth, propoganda or wool pulled over the eyes of those who could see.

This revolution has gone from being considered a 'side show of weirdos', to an 'internet following', to a 'group of citizens', to a 'nationwide freedom revolution' in a shorter time than I think even those who stand in opposition to it ever dreamed. It has demonstrated the will, ambition, determination, spirit, and unwaivering loyalty that many politicians and corporations could only dream of obtaining from those who would 'follow' them.

Normally, when a faceless, headless, runaway stampede of ever-expanding revenues and participants takes place - it is usually something the government came up with that is about to cost the taxpayers a lot of money. Those that are trying to gain access to the whip handles which could control us all have never seen anything like this before, and they are unsure of how to stop it.

They use their own 'tried and true' methods, such as media blackouts and (potentially) election fraud - but now there are too many eyes and ears watching them.. waiting for the slightest hint of impropriety.. ready to stand right next to the perpetrators and yell, 'Caught Ya!' when they attempt the subversive.

These warmongering, greedy, power hungry maniacs have never had to deal with the scrutiny that is being placed on their every move in such a public arena. They are unprepared, and they are scared. So scared that they have already slipped up during this election year. They have managed to 'cover their rears' with the mainstream thus far.. 'accident', 'human error', 'oops'. But they dont have any other methods than those they already use - so they will be forced to use them again, and they will.

When they do - this revolution will be right there to catch them. The 'oops' defense can only work so many times before it is no longer believed by even those who currently 'believe whatever MSM tells them'. Every time they slip up, the revolution gains more momentum, increases its numbers, and thereby increases it's ability to cover these subversive acts.

Eventually we will reach the tipping point.. and I think that will be sooner than later. Already this movement has grown by leaps and bounds. When it first started new patriots joined every month.. then every week.. then every day.. and as those numbers grew, so did the coverage from within, so that this freedom revolution grows every hour, potentially every minute. Not much longer and it will be growing at 'every second' rates.

This snowball cannot be stopped. I'm sure there are think tanks out there right now trying to devise a way to thwart our efforts - and every time they emerge from their meetings with new plans to present to their 'masters', they are met with the phrase "Go back and try again, it's even bigger than before".

That is the power of freedom. That is the natural outcome when real liberty is at stake. It takes a while to get started, but once it does it is that freight train that keeps being brought up - you cant stop it. The only thing that can stop that train is the train itself. It either puts on the brakes, shuts off the fuel, or steers itself into a wall.

THIS train has no one manning the brake lever, because it has no brakes. THIS train has no one watching the fuel gauge, because it runs on principal - not energy. THIS train has no one steering it, because there is only one path to freedom - and that doesn't need a track to run on.

To my fellow revolutionary warriors - I salute you, and look forward to the great and prosperous future we are about to embark on. I look forward to taking the ultimate voyage with you all - the voyage of liberty, freedom and returning Constitutional rights to all who live in this country!
