James Jaeger At The Daily Bell
The Daily Bell has a new interview with film maker James Jaeger which gives a panoramic over-view of James’ current film, MAINSTREAM. Here is a taste of the quality reading awaiting you at the Daily Bell’s website, where you’ll find the whole article/interview.
James Jaeger is an award-winning filmmaker who co-founded Matrix Entertainment which has partnered with Bill Van Alen, of Cornerstone Entertainment, Constitutional attorney, Edwin Vieira, Jr., and independent producer, Richard B. Iott, to produce a series of feature-length political documentaries centering on the U.S. Constitution. The first documentary – Fiat Empire about the Federal Reserve System, featuring Congressman Ron Paul – garnered a Telly Award and went viral as the #1 film on the Internet for six months. That inspired James and his associates to develop, produce and release additional cutting-edge motion pictures including the recently completed and released Midnight Ride – When Rogue Politicians Call for Martial Law, featuring Ron Paul, Stewart Rhodes, Sheriff Mack, G. Edward Griffin and other Freedom Movement celebrities.
The Daily Bell: Hi, we last interviewed you when your latest film Midnight Ride was debuting. We want to discuss your upcoming projects, but first update us on Midnight Ride.
James Jaeger: Hi thanks for having me back. Yes, we released Midnight Ride on November 6th of last year as the sister film to Molon Labe, released about 18 months earlier. Both documentaries were produced in association with Oath Keepers and Braeburn Entertainment and I really want to thank Stewart Rhodes and Elias Alias of Oath Keepers, Richard Lott of Braeburn and Brian Rockey for stepping up to the plate as our producers and making generous donations to not only kick the project into production, but complete it on time and on budget. Many have informed me that the production values of Midnight Ride were the best so far out of our seven films to date.
In review, Molon Labe is an introduction to the Second Amendment and the Militia System necessitated by the U.S. Constitution. Midnight Ride is a warning of what could happen if the right to “keep and bear” and the state Militia System are not effectuated as advised by the Founders. Anyone can see both of these films as a free public service by going to YouTube and entering the titles of the movies into the YouTube search field. Higher quality versions of these, and our other five films, can be purchased on DVD at www.MoviePubs.net
The Daily Bell: Midnight Ride explains what could happen if we ignore the advice of the Second Amendment and the Framers. What’s your reaction to Scalia’s death. Is it possible that the Second Amendment could be undermined?
James Jaeger: Scalia was a very significant supporter of the Second Amendment and if Hillary gets in her replacement will probably be another “gun control nut.” That said, even Scalia, to the best of my knowledge, never mentioned – as a fact or even a concept – the idea that a “well regulated militia” is necessary to the security of a free state.
Can anyone show me where Scalia, or the Supreme Court, even discussed the militia system? Can anyone show me where Scalia or anyone on the U.S. Supreme Court has demonstrated a knowledge of the Second Amendment as accurate as Edwin Vieira’s books, The Sword and Sovereignty and By Tyranny Out of Necessity? I don’t think anyone can. Thus the very Supreme Court of the nation seems to be ignorant about, or ignoring, the very most important part of the Second Amendment – the idea that we must have well regulated, well trained state Militias in each and every state guaranteeing the security of a free nation. So, no wonder we now have – instead of a free state – a Nazi-inspired Department of Homeland Security embedded in a government hell-bent on breaking into our cell phones. And yes, a number of experts in Midnight Ride, including Ron Paul, said we have become a police state. This is not a popular thing to say as accurate as it may be.
The Daily Bell: The mainstream media distributors continue to ignore your films. Will that change?
James Jaeger: As of this interview, Midnight Ride has had about 30,000 people watch it on YouTube and Molon Labe has been screened by about 228,000. Given the population of the U.S. is over 300 million and there are about 146 million registered voters, these are not great stats. So did we get mainstream distribution? Obviously not. Are distributors ignoring our films? Well they don’t seem to be promoting them with abandon – especially with things the films relate, so popular with the mainstream media.
Will this change? I don’t know, but our new film, tentatively entitled Mainstream – How Hollywood Movies and the New York Media Are Undermining Constitutional Principles, is going to take a serious look at the Hollywood studio/distributors and the New York-based TV Networks. We’re going to explain exactly why the U.S. mainstream media oligopoly is promoting the globalist agenda and how it has been influenced by cultural Marxism and corporate fascism. We’re also going to discuss how the studio system was destroyed by the government and why Hollywood went cold, ruthless and corporate.
The Daily Bell: It sounds very interesting. Can you elaborate?
James Jaeger: The plot is simple. Edison invented the movie camera and started making movies that basically sucked. He was no “movie mogul.” He was however a ruthlessly enforcer of his patents so no one else could make movies and, along with other “leaders” of the Eastern Establishment, discriminated against the Jewish European immigrants who set up the first movie theaters and were producing better movies than he. Fortunately or unfortunately, many of these early immigrants had to high-tail it out of New York because they were, after all, violating Edison’s patents. So they moved to a small then unknown suburb of Los Angeles called Hollywood and founded a handful of studios. They thus became known as the Hollywood movie moguls.
The Hollywood moguls set up the “studio system” and an endless flow of creative and diverse movies were produced in what became the Golden Age of Hollywood. Then, as mentioned, the government – probably influenced by Edison and his patent police – cracked down on the moguls and made them chop off their theaters in 1948. After this happened, the studios had no reliable showcase for their product and thus the studio system died. Along with this death perished great and original movies that championed America and gave steady employment to many, many actors, writers, directors, producers and production crews. Desperate for money, the studios sold out and were eventually bought up by conglomerates heavily infected with the disease of corporate fascism and cultural Marxism.
Our new documentary, Mainstream, shows the details of the destruction of the Hollywood “studio system” which has lead to today’s desperate, profit-driven, predatory, unethical, gross, derivative, undiversified, anti-American, anti-Constitutional mainstream media.
