Monday, January 10 - What In The World Are They Spraying?

What are the strange white lines in the skies witnessed around the world? Can the toxic elements found in soil, water, and air be related? People call the lines, sometimes expanding to cover the sky, chemtrails.

Chemtrails have long been debated and producer Michael Murphy and director Paul Wittenberger teamed up with world renowned author and documentary film producer G. Edward Griffin to combine their expertise and research to put an end to the debate about chemtrails. The world premiere of What In The World Are They Spraying? was held in Atlanta in October 2010. This is the first-ever full length documentary about chemtrails.

Monday, January 17 - Collapse

Explores the theories, writings, and life story of controversial author Michael Ruppert. A former Los Angeles police officer who describes himself as an investigative reporter and radical thinker, has authored books on the events of the September 11 attacks, energy issues, and more. He draws on reports and data available to all internet users, but has a unique interpretation.

Collapse premiered at the Toronto International Film Festival in September 2009 to positive reviews: Entertainment Weekly called it, "one of the few true buzz films;" Roger Ebert wrote,
"I couldn't tear my eyes from the owe it to yourself to see it."

Monday, January 24 - Oklahoma City: What Really Happened

On April 19, 1995, in what was at that time the worst attack ever perpetrated in the US, 168 people were killed in the bombing of the Murrah Federal Bldg. in Oklahoma City. Was there more than one bomb? Did some of the occupants have prior warning? Are there other "unsolved mysteries" connected with this atrocity? Oklahoma state rep. Charles Key, featured in this video, stands alone as the only political figure in America willing to raise questions concerning the investigation of this attack. While placing his political future on the line, he strives to find out what really happened. (Rep. Key still holds office today.)

Eyewitnesses and experts and let you draw your own conclusion about what really took place in Oklahoma City on April 19.

Monday, January 31 - Sir! No Sir!

An astounding documentary telling the hidden story of soldiers' involvement in ending the Vietnam war. A Green Beret haltingly states, "Everything I grew up with...This is just not the way you treat human beings." Soldiers' individual doubts would eventually evolve into outright rebellion, with active-duty American troops refusing Vietnam duty, inciting stockade riots, joining off-base protests, and going AWOL. The film links this opposition to the hundreds of battlefield shootings by American troops of their own commanders in a notorious practice that became known as "fragging." [shooting] For some, the brutality they witnessed in Vietnam destroyed the convictions that made them willing to fight and die.
