Aaron Russo, A Model American

Ashley Hayes

“Let not any one pacify his conscience by the delusion that he can do no harm if he takes no part, and forms no opinion. Bad men need nothing more to compass their ends, than that good men should look on.” – Philosopher John Stuart Mill

Aaron Russo was a successful filmaker, (Trading Places, The Rose, Wise Guys) an activist, and a do-er who took his belief —  that we are all here to try to make the world a better place — seriously.

He had early success in the 1960s, while in his early 20s, in the undergarment business, in Chicago.  He believed America was free and that one could pursue whatever dreams he desired, as long as he did so with integrity and honesty. 

Shortly after opening a new nightclub, while his [mostly] hippy patrons were listening to the band, his business was surrounded by cops who busted through the doors and began dragging people, including him, to a “paddy wagon,” intentionally injuring him and brutally beating others along the way.  He then watched as firemen dumped bag after bag of trash inside his new club.

The next day, after reading the false story about why his club had been raided, one that claimed it was filled with rowdy patrons and was covered in trash, he was visited by two cops, one being a captain.  Together, they told Aaron that in order to continue his business, it was going to cost him $2000 a month and that, for that price, he”d be given the courtesy of a phone call in advance of their next raid (claiming the raids were needed to keep up appearances in the neighborhood).  Aaron agreed to the deal and the raids (and fees) continued until they eventually burned his business to the ground.

This was a wake-up.call to Aaron and his first exposure to corruption.  Prior to this, he’d had no idea this type of thing happened in America.  But it also spurred him in his lifelong quest to expose, and take action against, corruption when he saw it.

In the early ’90s, while running for office in Nevada, he was told Nick Rockefeller wanted to meet him.  They met and became good friends, even though they saw the world entirely differently.

Aaron Russo and Nick Rockefeller

In an interview with Alex Jones in 2007, shortly before his death from cancer, Aaron tells a story of how Nick told him, explicitly, that the ultimate goal of those in his world was to “get everybody chipped.”  Total control of the people was the goal. While most of us have heard about that tyrannical dream for some time, hearing an individual say a Rockefeller blatantly said it out loud to him in casual conversation is unnerving in a whole new way.

Nick also told Aaron that, at some point in the [then] near future, a major event, which would be a hoax, was going to happen that was going to permanently alter our world, usher in mass surveillance, and that the military would be involved in taking over other countries, pretending to look for weapons of mass destruction that didn’t exist.  Eleven months later, 9/11 happened.

Additionally, over dinner one night, Nick told Aaron that the “women’s lib” movement had been set up by his family because it had dawned on them that with women at home, that was keeping them from being able to tax half of the people, and that by getting women into the workforce, they could destabilize the family unit, get kids into school sooner “and begin indoctrinating them.”

Through Nick Rockefeller, Aaron learned about the Council on Foreign Relations (of which his family was, and is, a major player), confirming  it was the ultimate desire of those at the top of the organization to enslave the masses.

Upon learning these — and other — truths, Aaron set out to expose these horrific plans to anyone who would listen.  He held rallys, had a one-man show called “I’m Mad As Hell,” and produced an excellent documentary, America:  Freedom to Fascism.

While his film was released in 2007, it is absolutely relevant to what is happening in our world right now and exposes crimes and injustices to which most Americans are oblivious, but which affect us all.

I encourage you to take a couple of hours to watch it, and to share it with anyone you know.  The truth you will learn about the IRS is, alone, worth your time.  (Hint:  There is not, nor has there ever been, any law that says you have to pay income tax.)

Aaron represented the best of the American spirit, one that I choose to believe is still in all of us.  We just have to.have the courage to let it out.

Here are the links to his one-man show, his Alex Jones interview, and his excellent documentary:

    I don’t pay an income tax – but there is a place on my check stubs that says it’s deducted.
    What I also see is where it says I get X.XX amount of money per hour. I figure when this ‘income tax’ (unseen money) is deducted from my check- I don’t get X.XX per hour, I get less.
    If I actually get the money first, then paid them the (uhh) ‘tax’ owed, it would be a different story. Well… no —
    But alas- it is what it is (and will be)… until the fed is turned upside down and shaken until its pockets are emptied.

    To take back what is ours.

    An extraordinary article always, Ashley! And how ironic that an enlightened man such as Arron Russo become friends with a treacherous man such as Nick Rockefeller. And Nick’s smile in the photograph reminds of the Cheshire Cat. I think that maybe Aaron might be the ‘Alice in Wonderland’ that intrigues the devious and deceitful ‘Cheshire Cat’ who represents something more than the average eye can see! He has a tendency to make himself invisible and you don’t know what he is up to!
    “The Cheshire Cat is one of the characters who serves to help Alice and explain things to her.”

    But seriously, I listened to and watched the video, “Arron Russo’s AMERICAN Freedom to fascism.” It is certainly an eye opener where the IRS is concerned and more. And I have already shared it. I stated in my posted share that the people have been duped into paying income taxes. That it is not even a law under the Federal System. And no one seems to be able to prove that it is! But yet the IRS can send innocent American citizens to prison for not paying their taxes.

    And in addition, your article states that the “women’s lib” movement had been set up by the Rockefeller family in order to obtain income taxes from the working woman as well as the men.

    And now many women believe that they are not valued unless they are working or have a career.
    Although I believe that there might be even more to these scoundrels goals in wanting woman in the workforce. They have been manipulating the woman’s role in society for a very long time.

    “Ashtar Sheran: Your Future On Eden” channeled and written by Sharon Stewart:

    “The key to your resurgence of power is the acceptance of the divine feminine and the transition from toxic masculinity to divine masculinity.
    Toxic masculinity, in principle, is the destroyer of the divine feminine or so your controllers would have you think. There is no destroying the divine. It will always rise again and now it is.
    Toxic masculinity, as played out on your current timelines, is about oppression of the female, and oppression of those who practice divine feminine principles. That is why some of your races have been oppressed as well as women in general – because they are intuitive, nurturing, caring and the power upon which the masculine acts. You notice that in your indigenous communities, many of the elders are women, for example. This is why the toxic masculine rulers hate them. They hate anything that has power over them and the divine feminine does. And they fear your indigenous people.
    It created itself within the masculine of your earth, it created rulers out of the men and left the women to more menial tasks. Child bearing and child raising were seen as insignificant and were stripped of the reverence they indeed deserve. Bearing children is an act of co-creation and an expression of God in the sense that it is creation of life. Hence your sexual outlook has also been cheapened, with woman posing for pornographic photos, films and seen as sexual objects. ( Now women are given more respect in the workplace because they too, are seen as the workers of the hive mind, which was the role originally meted out to men. Your women see this as a rise in their power, but it is not. There is not power to be gained for any gender within your current Matrix regime.)
    Your divine feminine was attacked because your controllers are not worshippers of life; they are worshippers of death.
    Women are indeed the intuitors, the nurturers of life, and the givers of life to your race and they should be revered for this. Your ancient races knew this, this information has been held onto and passed down through your indigenous races throughout the cons. and for that reason, they were dominated and oppressed. They knew the truth. They know that the female is queen.
    It is in their nature. Look at your bee colonies. The female is dominant. In animal groups as well.
    People are heavily out of balance. And both sexes have power. It is not a question one dominating the other in nature: it is a question of your respecting one another and working together in balance for the good of all. This will be restored to your race.
    Throughout your history, your churches burnt those who practices feminine
    principles , at the stake, who healed the sick with potions and used the land to heal. They called them witches and these people were seen as heretics, who practiced dark witchcraft in violation in the rules of God, or the dark which the church imposed upon your people.”

    Hope I didn’t go to all over the place, John. But after reading Ashley’s article and listening to the video, my mind started churning!
