Editorial Reviews

Controversial and throught-provoking are two words that describe one of the most talked-about documentaries of 2006.

Determined to find the law that requries American citizens to pay income tax, producer Aaron Russo (Bette Midler'sThe Rose, Trading Places) set out on a journey to find the evidence.

Neither left nor right-wing, this startling examination of government exposes the systematic erosion of civil liberties in America since 1913 when the Federal Reserve system was fraudulently created. Through interviews with two U.S. Congressmen, former IRS Commissioner and former IRS and FBI agents, tax attorneys and authors, Russo connects the dots between money creation, federal income tax, and the national identity card, which becomes law in May 2008 and will use Radio Frequency Identification (RFID) technology. Could this be a precursor to an impending police state in America? Watch the film and make your own conclusions.

Format: DVD
Russo has done a good introduction to some of the ills that are facing this nation and the world. This documentary is a starting point for information that more people need to know, discuss and share. He has appropriately singled out the Federal Reserve as public enemy no. 1. (The other side being that we could really use a moral and spiritual re-awakening, but I count Russo and this documentary as being part of that.)

A previous reviewer has made comments about the Fed that are quite inaccurate and Russo is on the mark. The Fed did not end the "run on banks", the act creating the Federal Depository Insurance Corp did that and is totally separate from the Fed. The fact is more banks failed after the creation of the Fed than at any time previously. What the Fed did was consolidate the money creating power behind the largest banks, who own the majority of the Fed. It also gave those same banks an essential monopoly on creating money through the legal tender law. The supposed or stated purpose of the Fed was to stabilize the value of the dollar which was a false pretext as the dollar has lost 96% of its value since the creation of the Fed. Read "The Truth in Money Book" or "The Creature from Jekyll Island" to understand how the Fed and our banking system operates. Our banking system, through charging people interest on what it creates out of thin air, has a hand in everyone's pocket and we would be a much wealthier nation with a different system of creating money.

A few years back (in 2000) I did a calculation to estimate how much we were paying to the banks and other institutions for the "privilege" of our money supply through the payment of interest. It came out to $1500 per year per man, woman and child in the US.

I was fortunate enough to have been able to catch this film in one of its limited theatrical showings. I was in stunned silence through the showing as was the rest of the hall even though I was aware of most of this information. During the ending credits it recieved a standing ovation.

This DVD is available now if not on Amazon try infowars. com They have it now.

Get this movie any way you can, show it your friends. Get multiple copies and pass them around.

This movie shows the truth about the IRS and the Federal Reserve. Every American needs to see this movie to understand how we are being sold into slavery.

This movie is stunning in the way it presents the information. If you anyone who is skeptical about the impending takeover and destruction of our republic, this movie can wake up even the most skeptical.

Aaron Russo has generated a masterpiece here.

See this while you still can.

The Film

Determined to find the law that requires American citizens to pay income tax, producer Aaron Russo ("The Rose," "Trading Places") set out on a journey to find the evidence. This film which is neither left, nor right-wing is a startling examination of government. It exposes the systematic erosion of civil liberties in America since 1913 when the Federal Reserve system was fraudulently created. Through interviews with U.S. Congressmen, a former IRS Commissioner, former IRS and FBI agents and tax attorneys and authors, Russo connects the dots between money creation, federal income tax, and the national identity card which becomes law in May 2008. This ID card will use Radio Frequency Identification (RFID) chips which are essentially homing devices used to track people. This film shows in great detail and undeniable facts that America is moving headlong into a fascist police state. Wake up!" From the Movie site...

Russo wanted to understand the law enabling the collection of the federal income tax. What he discovered will sober you and perhaps spur you to take action.

Aaron Russo is a respected Hollywood producer ("Trading Places" "The Rose") who has furthered the careers of Bette Midler and Led Zeppelin (back in the late 1960s).

In this self-narrated documentary, Russo interviews tax protestors, former IRS agents and former IRS commissioner Cohen. The latter was clearly surprised by Russo's questions and abruptly stopped the interview. The offending question? "Where is the specific law, statute that mandates individuals pay a federal income tax?" When Cohen, and other IRS agents were questioned, their answers were the same: evasive, hostile, but no concrete citation of law. There would seem to be no law.

This documentary resonated with me because it seemed to echo my own thoughts and observations about our government and more importantly this war on terror. Think about all the changes made under the banner of "security" and "freedom". This film will give you that and a whole lot more to munch on but it's not all doom and gloom. There are organizations out there leading the fight against a world government and the total erosion of our liberties. A big thumbs up to Aaron Russo for putting himself out there in the public light where I am sure it is going to cause him problems.
