For our video presentation at this month’s meetings in Denver and Boulder, we are pleased to offer Deceptions, a film by Chris Pratt. Deceptions is a film about awareness and critical thinking. Starting with 9/11 and proceeding through Bush and then Obama, the film reveals an elite of a much higher order. Master puppeteers of unimaginable wealth and power, an elite shrouded in secrecy and protected by layers of the super rich, and a media that controls both the news and public opinion. They are the ones pulling the strings, the ones in charge.
Chris Pratt, a Vermont neural plasticity expert who calls himself a “citizen journalist,” made this film in the midst of his own crisis of discovery, and dedicated it to the unveiling of several deceptions and the waking up of America.
This is the theme of our times. And the people are rising, making films, educating ourselves, standing up, and finding our voice. Join us for this remarkable film, 58 minutes in length.

A Message from the Filmmaker:
I never intended to do a film.
Had no experience.
This journey began while preparing for a presentation that emphasized the importance that awareness and focused attention had on brain function.
So, with no experience but a ton of determination, I chose to share these truths with anyone who would listen.
Life was so much better when I lived in the “bubble” unaware that my freedoms had some very distinct boundaries. If I stayed in my sandbox I was OK. But if I ventured out, if I became a critical thinker, read, questioned authority, thought beyond Democrat or Republican, I realized that my opinion and perceptions were being managed by a corporate media, that there was no public policy only corporate policy.
I became a subversive. But how could I reconcile continual war, wiretapping, unanswered 9/11 questions, torture, rendition, terrorism, the loss of freedom, police brutality, news suppression, the bailouts, evaporation of the public option, a toothless financial reform, no real audit of the Fed, BP’s constant lies, political bribery, uncharged war criminals and corruption beyond belief? My country was disappearing. How could I do nothing?
Time is running out, America.
Please consider joining us in either Boulder or Denver for this important film and bring a friend!
