PART 2

Almost everything I predicted about how Bit Coin could be brought down or controlled by the federal government has occurred since the article was written.

We, the people, did not take our responsibilities as a free society seriously and preferred television and other forms of entertainment to learning what we need to know to make sure those we elect to represent them are doing their job – rather than stealing from them.First, the traditional definition of fiat currency – a paper currency with no value unless backed by something with a defined value, like precious metals. Paper currency that is not backed by something of value is… worthless.

I disagree with the traditional definition because the currency of the United States and other nations, too is backed by the taxpayers. As long as taxpayers can be put in prison for not paying their taxes, paper currency is backed by the tyrannical threat of government actions against taxpayers.As long as government can penalize your bank account and it can under Dodd-Frank and your IRA or pension and it can, the fiat currency controlled by the Federal Reserve System is not worthless.

Servando Gonzalez — The Current Tragedy of the Commons… “Marx and Engels began their Communist Manifesto with a warning and a threat: “A specter is haunting Europe — the specter of Communism.” “

Marx and Engels began their Communist Manifesto with a warning and a threat: “A specter is haunting Europe — the specter of Communism.”

According to French economist Thomas Picketty, a new threatening specter is haunting the world: the specter of economic inequality.According a reviewer, Picketty’s new book, Capital in the Twenty First Century, has almost overnight captivated “Main Street, Wall Street and the cream of Washington’s trend-minded policymakers and think tankers.”[1] What is Picketty’s book main thesis?

That the gap between the poor and the rich has reached dangerous levels. Picketty warns that the U.S. may be on the same trajectory as France before the Revolution, where the very rich ended with their heads chopped-off.After analyzing data from the U.K., France, Germany, Japan and the U.S., Picketty proved with hard data what many people already have been talking about for many years: the rich really are getting richer, and their wealth is not trickling down.

Economic Reasons These United States Should Restore the Articles of Confederation as the Legitimate Central Government of the US

How would you like to begin a peaceful, legitimate political action which could roll back the last 100 years of government growth and national debt along with the hated federal income tax and the Fed?

What if you could force Washington to return to a strong dollar policy and allow real currency competition to escape the near total destruction of the dollar now worth only 5 cents of the 1913 dollar? Imagine a future when the President would be forced to seek a Declaration of War and get the states and citizens behind any new military incursion, invasion or bombing?Most experts agree Washington’s national debt and unfunded liabilities are a ticking time bomb toward national bankruptcy and dollar collapse.

Will It Be a False Flag Attack Or a Currency Collapse?currency collapse1Hitler initiated a false flag event and burned down the Reichstag to gain control over the German government. Could the same happen here in the United States? My initial response to that question is, does it really matter? The pattern of societal collapse and subsequent governmental enslavement of the American people will be largely the same whether the precipitating incident is a false flag attack or a currency collapse. For the purpose of simplicity, let us call the precursor event to all-out martial law, a currency collapse.

The Federal Reserve Is the Enemy of HumanityThe Federal Reserve has been bleeding this country to death for a century. What the dollar bought 100 years ago, can only buy three cents of product today. This means that 97% of the value of our currency has gone into the pockets of the Federal Reserve investors for the past 100 years.I am amazed at the abject ignorance of the American people and that they think the Federal Reserve is actually part of the federal government. As we like to stay in the alternative media, the Federal Reserve is no more federal than Federal Express.

For the record, the Federal Reserve is a privately held corporation which sells stock to preferred insiders. In 1913, a small majority of Congress commissioned the Federal Reserve to control banking in the United States. Without a doubt, this was the worst decision ever made by an act of Congress.The Dollar Is Divingfinancial collapse

The world is running from the dollar, or should I more accurately state the Petrodollar. Until recently, our dollar was used as the currency of international trading. Further, the dollar was also the reserve currency for oil. All foreign countries wishing to purchase oil from the Middle East, first had to purchase dollars from the Federal Reserve. After FDR took us off the gold standard during the Great Depression and Richard Nixon finished the task of providing America with a totally Fiat currency, the only backing that our dollar enjoys is that of being the reserve currency for both trading and for oil i.e. the Petrodollar scam.

The major cause of the present economic calamity is fractional reserve banking. When the government goes to the private Federal Reserve and asks for one trillion dollars, the federal reserve gets to print one trillion for the government, at interest, and 10 trillion dollars for themselves and to lend out at high interest rates. This inflationary practice erodes the value of your dollar while enriching our Federal Reserve investors.

Ultimately, the currency upon which we depend on will be destroyed and life as we know it will be changed forever. The practice of fractional reserve banking should be wholly illegal because it creates a state of permanent inflation for the benefit of a few and sets up economic demise for the many.A Changing of the Financial Guard……

china buying us banks In order to keep its head about water for just one more day, the Federal Reserve has now permitted Chinese-controlled banks to take stakes in US banks. This is a nefarious invasion of the U.S. economy. Subsequently, we have witnessed a major shift in the percentage of the U.S. debt owned by Chinese vs. the Federal Reserve. This is the beginning of the end for the dollar, the U.S. economy, your standard of living, your assets, your freedoms and for many of you, your very lives.

Last week, Federal Reserve Chairman Janet Yellen testified before Congress for the first time since replacing Ben Bernanke at the beginning of the month.

Her testimony confirmed what many of us suspected, that interventionist Keynesian policies at the Federal Reserve are well-entrenched and far from over.

Mrs. Yellen practically bent over backwards to reassure Wall Street that the Fed would continue its accommodative monetary policy well into any new economic recovery. The same monetary policy that got us into this mess will remain in place until the next crisis hits.

According to this video released today by David Vose, America is already now under martial law. With the NDAA in effect and the obvious assassinations of American citizens happening before our eyes, the attempted silencing of truth and the lies of the mainstream media being exposed every day, is this video more proof that Liberty is already dead and gone?

 

As long as we still have the 1st and 2nd Amendments, we still have everything we need to make sure that Liberty lives on for long after we are gone. Awaken the masses while we still can.

Most visible are his 700+ articles at LewRockwell.com, probably all of which are supportive of, or at the least, not inconsistent with radical libertarian anarchism.

This article exists precisely because Gary North is often very insightful. Some of his excellent writings include critical analyses of the Federal Reserve, his arguments for a lifestyle of thrift, advice on market timing, support for home schooling and the Robinson Curriculum, the PhD glut and minimizing college costs, explaining the methods governments influence the price of gold, and highlighting Deuteronomy 20:5-8 as a religious argument not only against a military draft, but against all modern enlistment contracts as well.

Systematic Population Reduction of the American People Has Begun….. “Remember, our goal is not win an outright victory, it is to survive by delaying…” | Dave Hodges – The Common Sense Show

May 1, 2013 3 comments

…..Can We Effectively Respond?

Anything that can delay the mass implementation of these policies is a victory for the people against this tyrannical government. I believe that the globalists have invoked a very risky strategy. They may be able win a civil war from a military point of view.

However, if the people refuse to give in and commence the globalist inspired civil war, their strategy is imperiled. The longer it takes to subjugate the American people by using food and political agitation as a tool to ferment conflict, the more of the enforcement apparatus of the globalists will find that they and their families will fall victims to the same plot just the same as the people from which they are tasked with confronting. Starvation could prove to a great unifier for the American people.

The first order of business is for the people, regardless of any future executive decrees, lies in theimmediate need to become food self-sufficient. Begin to grow your food right now. Barb Peterson has a great prescription of how to garden indoors in cold weather climates. Also, begin to store food, right now. This includes storing water along with the chemicals to preserve it. In the upcoming days, you will need supplies that you have not accounted for.

Taxation is Robbery, Part 1 “It is not the law which in the first instance defines robbery, it is an ethical principle, and this the law may violate but not supersede”- Frank Chodorov – Mises Daily

April 3, 2013 1 comment

[From Out of Step: The Autobiography of an Individualist, by Frank Chodorov; The Devin-Adair Company, New York, 1962, pp. 216-239.]

 

RPREVOLU

The Encyclopaedia Britannica defines taxation as “that part of the revenues of a state which is obtained by the compulsory dues and charges upon its subjects.” That is about as concise and accurate as a definition can be; it leaves no room for argument as to what taxation is. In that statement of fact the word “compulsory” looms large, simply because of its ethical content. The quick reaction is to question the “right” of the State to this use of power. What sanction, in morals, does the State adduce for the taking of property? Is its exercise of sovereignty sufficient unto itself?

 

On this question of morality there are two positions, and never the twain will meet. Those who hold that political institutions stem from “the nature of man,” thus enjoying vicarious divinity, or those who pronounce the State the keystone of social integrations, can find no quarrel with taxation per se; the State’s taking of property is justified by its being or its beneficial office. On the other hand, those who hold to the primacy of the individual, whose very existence is his claim to inalienable rights, lean to the position that in the compulsory collection of dues and charges the State is merely exercising power, without regard to morals.

 

gophum

The present inquiry into taxation begins with the second of these positions. It is as biased as would be an inquiry starting with the similarly unprovable proposition that the State is either a natural or a socially necessary institution.

 

Complete objectivity is precluded when an ethical postulate is the major premise of an argument and a discussion of the nature of taxation cannot exclude values.

 

 

 

 

 

If we assume that the individual has an indisputable right to life, we must concede that he has a similar right to the enjoyment of the products of his labor. This we call a property right. The absolute right to property follows from the original right to life because one without the other is meaningless; the means to life must be identified with life itself. If the State has a prior right to the products of one’s labor, his right to existence is qualified.

The Obama administration is readying a push to get banks to make more home loans available to individuals with weaker credit, The Washington Post’s Zach Goldfarb reports.

It’s a push that walks a tightrope, since it is expected to help boost the continuing economic recovery immediately but risks opening up the shaky lending that led to the housing crash.

Obama’s plan would provide for more lending to individuals such as young people buying their first homes, as well as people whose credit has been damaged by the recession.

Today’s banks are insolvent by definition and if customers lose confidence in their holdings and decide to cash out, it’s called a ‘run on the bank‘ and the doors close.

 

Why?

 

 

 

If banks were legitimate businesses with ‘normal’ constraints, they would be legally liable to meet their contractual obligations, one of which is to ‘pay you, on demand’ your money.

 

A loss of confidence is always fatal because, by the very nature of fractional-reserve banking, no bank can honor all of its contracts.

“The high office of the President has been used to foment a plot to destroy the American’s freedom and before I leave office, I must inform the citizens of this plight.” — President John Fitzgerald Kennedy – In a speech made to Columbia University on Nov. 12, 1963, ten days before his assassination!

From The Final Call, Vol15, No.6, on January 17, 1996 (USA)

John F. Kennedy

Cover of John F. Kennedy

On June 4, 1963, a little known attempt was made to strip the Federal Reserve Bank of its power to loan money to the government at interest. On that day President John F. Kennedy signed Executive Order No. 11110 that returned to the U.S. government the power to issue currency, without going through the Federal Reserve.

Mr. Kennedy‘s order gave the Treasury the power “to issue silver certificates against any silver bullion, silver, or standard silver dollars in the Treasury.” This meant that for every ounce of silver in the U.S. Treasury‘s vault, the government could introduce new money into circulation. In all, Kennedy brought nearly $4.3 billion in U.S. notes into circulation. The ramifications of this bill are enormous.

A Run on the Fed?

 

Watch out for the cache of gold kept in the basement of the Federal Reserve Bank

It would be way overstating things to suggest that there could be a run on the cache of gold that is kept in the basement of the Federal Reserve Bank in New York. But in the wake of reports that Germany is undertaking a program to remove its gold from the Fed and return it to Germany, a bill has been introduced in the legislature of Texas to move the state’s gold bars held at a private bank in New York and transfer them to a depository in the Lone Star State.

 

The bill has been introduced at Austin by Representative Giovanni Capriglione. It would establish a depository in Texas itself for the state’s specie. It has been endorsed by Governor Perry. And Texas most famous former congressman, Ron Paul, has just sent us a cheerful telegram saying that if the bill passes, he’ll volunteer to go with Mr. Perry to “pick up our gold” — so long as the “governor brought along his body guards and the Texas Rangers.”

 

The measure introduced by Mr. Capriglione, a Republican of Southlake, is designed to bring back to Texas gold bars that the Texas Tribune reckons would fetch $1 billion. The Tribune reports they are owned by the University of Texas Investment Management Company, or UTIMCO. A report in the Washington Post and of the Gold Anti-Trust Action Committee says the gold Texas wants to bring home is on deposit in New York with a facility of HSBC.

The Congressional Budget Debate Is Just a Sideshow by Ron Paul

March 18, 2013 Leave a comment

Federal spending once again dominated the debate in Washington last week, as House Republicans and Senate Democrats began work on their ten-year budget plans. Contrary to claims, neither party’s budget reduces spending. While the Republican plan increases spending a little less than the Democrat plan, it would still spend $5 trillion in 2023, an almost two trillion dollar increase over this year’s budget.

Of course, these projections of future budgets are meaningless, as a current Congress cannot bind a future one. Therefore, the projected spending for next year is the only part of the budget with any significance. So is there a great gulf between the two parties’ budgets for next year? No.

 

 

 

For fiscal year 2014, the Democrat budget proposes spending $3.7 trillion, while the “radical” Republican budget spends $3.5 trillion!

Since arriving in the Senate in 2011, Rand Paul has been probing here and there for issues of populist resonance.

 

Audit the secretive, sinister Federal Reserve.

 

Rein in those TSA screeners patting down little girls.

 

In each instance, Paul (R-Ky.) has evoked the fear of oppressive government without tipping over into the paranoia of his father’s most dedicated supporters.

 

It has been a diluted, domesticated, decaffeinated version of the ideology that motivated Ron Paul’s presidential races.

It is sad to say there are just two reasons why the U.S. is not yet a banana republic. The first reason is that the US dollar has not yet lost its world’s reserve currency status, which is helping to keep interest rates at record low levels. If the dollar, yen and euro were not involved in a currency war, the dollar’s intrinsic decline would become much more evident, causing domestic inflation to soar, and our bond market to immediately collapse.

However, the perpetual erosion of fiat currencies will eventually cause investors to eschew the sovereign debt issued by the over-indebted nations of America, Japan and Europe—even if the dollar’s decline does not manifest itself against the euro and the yen.

 

 

 

The other reason why we have not been declared a banana republic is because America is not located between the Tropics of Cancer and Capricorn.

The Myth of Fed Independence… “By far the most secret and least accountable operation of the federal government is not, as one might expect, the CIA, DIA, or some other super-secret intelligence agency.” – Murray N. Rothbard – Mises Daily

March 4, 2013 Leave a comment

[Excerpted from The Case Against The Fed.]

 

By far the most secret and least accountable operation of the federal government is not, as one might expect, the CIA, DIA, or some other super-secret intelligence agency. The CIA and other intelligence operations are under control of the Congress. They are accountable: a Congressional committee supervises these operations, controls their budgets, and is informed of their covert activities. It is true that the committee hearings and activities are closed to the public; but at least the people’s representatives in Congress insure some accountability for these secret agencies.

 

English: Murray Rothbard in the 90's

It is little known, however, that there is a federal agency that tops the others in secrecy by a country mile. The Federal Reserve System is accountable to no one; it has no budget; it is subject to no audit; and no Congressional committee knows of, or can truly supervise, its operations. The Federal Reserve, virtually in total control of the nation’s vital monetary system, is accountable to nobody—and this strange situation, if acknowledged at all, is invariably trumpeted as a virtue.

Whenever the federal government decides to reform something we can be fairly sure that the problem is about to get worse, especially if they call the plan bi-partisan. The bi-partisan immigration reform proposal launched last week in the US Senate will be no different.

 

The new plan, introduced by Sens. McCain and Schumer, would provide a path to citizenship for many of those in the United States illegally. This would only begin after the borders are deemed secure and applicants have paid fees for their illegal entry. They must also pay back taxes on their earnings while working here without government permission. Those on a path to citizenship would be subject to background checks and would be monitored while in the US.

Only One Solution to the Fed Debt Trap

by Rand Clifford

The Oxford Dictionary of Proverbs lists the oldest written version of the saying “what you don’t know can’t hurt you” as coming from playwright George Pettie’s Petit Palace in 1576:

“So long as I know it not, it hurteth me not.”

Several Rothschild-controlled centuries later, what Americans don’t know about “the Fed” may be fatal.

The Fed gained control of America’s money in 1913. Government debt now soars toward $17 trillion. Interest paid to service this debt, for the year 2011 alone, was $454,393,280,417.03, largely funneled by the Fed to eight international banking families:

Rothschild’s of London and Berlin; Lazard Brothers of Paris; Israel Moses Seaf of Italy; Kuhn, Loeb & Co. of Germany and New York; Warburg & Company of Hamburg, Germany; Lehman Brothers of New York; Goldman, Sachs of New York; Rockefeller Brothers of New York.

Last week President Obama bluntly warned Congress that he will not negotiate when it comes to raising the statutory debt limit. If Republicans attempt to use a debt ceiling vote to win concessions on spending from the White House, Mr. Obama threatens simply to raise the limit by executive order or other unilateral action.

How Much Did I Accomplish?

 

In many ways, according to conventional wisdom, my off-and-on career in Congress, from 1976 to 2012, accomplished very little. No named legislation, no named federal buildings or highways—thank goodness. In spite of my efforts, the government has grown exponentially, taxes remain excessive, and the prolific increase of incomprehensible regulations continues. Wars are constant and pursued without Congressional declaration, deficits rise to the sky, poverty is rampant and dependency on the federal government is now worse than any time in our history.

All this with minimal concerns for the deficits and unfunded liabilities that common sense tells us cannot go on much longer. A grand, but never mentioned, bipartisan agreement allows for the well-kept secret that keeps the spending going. One side doesn’t give up one penny on military spending, the other side doesn’t give up one penny on welfare spending, while both sides support the bailouts and subsidies for the banking and corporate elite. And the spending continues as the economy weakens and the downward spiral continues. As the government continues fiddling around, our liberties and our wealth burn in the flames of a foreign policy that makes us less safe.
