My friend Dale Williams (FreeWestRadio.com) sent me the link to this documentary film produced, directed, and narrated by Clint Richardson. It’s about the Comprehensive Annual Financial Report (CAFR), which Walter Burien has spent years attempting to make public on a wide scale. Burien gets ignored and even ridiculed by many and I think there’s a big reason for that (hint: it’s not his information)..
Burien fails in his delivery. He seems to have great information (I’ve tried to assimilate it), but reading and listening to him is like sitting through a lecture on 18th century botany and it’s ramifications for 19th century literature. b o r i n g
Richardson cuts through that and presents excellent, well-researched/documented, and fully explained information that doesn’t require a PhD and 3 jars of NoDoz to sit through. I’ve known Clint by reputation via friends of mine in Utah who’ve sent me his YouTube links when he confronts various politicians and snake oil salesmen (usually they’re on in the same) with blunt questions that he usually gets “out of my face, punk” answers to.
It turns out Clint has a technical background that’s suited to documentary-making, which you can see in this, his first feature-length doc. It’s 3 hours long, but well worth the time to sit through. Trust me, if you watch the first half hour, you’ll end up watching the whole thing anyway. It’s awesome information.
The Corporation Nation is as good as anything Alex Jones has put out, but without the bullhorn, Texas accent, and over-produced graphics and musical interludes. It’s more like what Jones used to make before he could afford high dollar production equipment.
Before seeing this film, I was not sold on the whole CAFR as a hidden agenda fascism-link and was pretty dubious about whether there was anything to the whole idea. I’d been pushed by fans like Judie H who has tried to get me to go through Burien’s stuff, but as I said, he’s about as interesting as watching the mating rituals of snails.
Now that I’ve seen Clint’s production, though, I know there’s something to this. He uses screen captures and walk-throughs to show you the information and where to find it yourself, which is awesome. The second or third time you watch this, you’ll definitely be trolling the Web as a paused screen shows you where to Google something.
This doc is well worth the time to watch and highly recommended. It’s absolutely free and can be watched on YouTube (at this link) or downloaded directly (fromTheCorporationNation.com). I’ve sent the link to our friends atRevolutionRequired.com, so expect to see this documentary as a feature on his 24/7 live stream as well.
The included graphic here was made by the Militant Libertarian because Clint doesn’t have a cover for his movie.
