Award-Winning Film Maker Says US Is Becoming Police State

Award-Winning Film Maker Says US Is Becoming Police State

(IsraelNN.com) Only one year after releasing his film that explored the potential illegality of the U.S. Government demanding an 'income' tax from its citizenry, Hollywood producer Aaron Russo passed away, but not before being interviewed on "The Tamar Yonah Show".

Aaron Russo was an award winning film-maker who produced blockbuster hits like "The Rose" and "Trading Places".

Russo later became active in politics and went on to make a ground breaking documentary, which he planned to title, "April 15th, The Real April Fools Day". The film was to focus on whether or not there existed a law requiring Americans to pay an income tax, or if the tax was in fact, a fraud. Through extensive research, he decided that the IRS was just a symptom of a much bigger problem, and renamed his documentary "America: Freedom to Fascism" after concluding that America is turning into a bona fide police state.

Russo shared stories of the U.S. government using power and authority to control the American people in a 2006 interview with IsraelNationalRadio's Tamar Yonah. Yonah and Russo discussed Patriot Act-related phone tapping, secret searches of private homes and offices without the provision of a search warrant, freezing of personal funds and assets, secret watch lists, private bank account and personal computer screenings as some of the actions U.S. authorities can conduct against American citizens. Alleged US governmental plans for biometric ID cards, Radio Frequency Identification (RFID) chips and governmental power to vaccinate Americans with untested vaccines, against their will are some rumors that have begun to circulate, causing concerns among some U.S. citizens.

The interview ends with reflection on the U.S. Government's policy, through the Patriot Act, of telling Americans that their rights will be protected by taking them away.
