Denver and Boulder Monthly Meetings: Smedley Butler and Naomi Wolf, September 2011

This month we will expand our view to the context in which a false flag event such as September 11, 2001, could occur.  In the United States, there have historically been constant efforts by well-heeled interests to crush our democratic republic.  We will explore two of these.

The Plot to Overthrow Franklin D. Roosevelt (41 minutes)

When Franklin Delano Roosevelt won the presidency in 1932, many Americans looked to his bold New Deal plans as the way out of the dark days of the Depression.  But a powerful group of financiers and industrialists saw his economic policies as a threat and devised a plot to replace the U.S. government with a fascist state.

This History Channel film reveals how, inspired by political trends in Germany and Italy, this group conceived of a plan to either overthrow the newly elected president or force him into a subservient position in which he would have to obey their orders.  They envisioned a paramilitary organization of disgruntled WWI veterans as the force to intimidate the government.  The man they chose to inspire and lead this army was a retired Marine officer who had twice been awarded the Medal of Honor, Major General Smedley D. Butler (left photo), a popular, colorful, and outspoken champion of veterans’ rights. But Butler was their undoing.  After discovering the details of the conspiracy, the horrified general blew the whistle and subjected the outrageous plot to the scrutiny of a congressional investigation.

With stunning footage of the 43,000-strong “bonus army” camped out in Washington, D.C., in 1932, we will witness glimpses into our history about which, most likely, many of us have been unaware.



The End of America (73 minutes)

From award-winning filmmakers Annie Sundberg and Ricki Stern (The Devil Came on Horseback and The Trials of Darryl Hunt) comes this provocative and expertly crafted film, based on the New York Times best-selling book by the same name.  With excellent graphics and videos to illustrate her presentation and with a stunning indictment of sweeping policy changes during the Bush years, author Naomi Wolf (The Beauty Myth) makes a chilling case that American democracy is under threat.

Investigating parallels between our current situation and the rise of dictators and fascism in once-free societies, Wolf uncovers ten deeply unsettling similarities—from the use of paramilitary groups and secret prisons to the targeted suspension of the rule of law.  With this galvanizing call to arms, she urges regular citizens to take back our legacy of freedom and justice.

Due to September 11, 2001, in the United States, all ten of these steps have been accomplished.

For those who missed the premieres of the Pre-Release Version of Explosive Evidence: Experts Speak Out, the film can currently be viewed online at    We strongly recommend you watch the film and help it go viral — it is incredibly powerful to see so many experts giving their testimony on this issue.  It’s a very compelling, “don’t miss” film that you will want to share with friends and family.

The finished version of this excellent film, which will have many added graphics, will be ready in about a month.  You may order it here.
