Look into the eyes of terror… This man looks as dangerous as Osama bin Laden and Hitler all rolled into one. This “Domestic Terrorist” was convicted today by the Federal Government for conspiracy against the United States. He faces 15 years in jail for this horrendous crime. What was this “Domestic Terrorist’s” crime? Was he complicit in 9/11? How about the Oklahoma City bombing? Or the Anthrax attacks? Or the collapse of the housing or stock markets? No, this 67 year old’s crime was minting silver coins call the Liberty Dollar.
“Attempts to undermine the legitimate currency of this country are simply a unique form of domestic terrorism,” U.S. Attorney Tompkins said in announcing the verdict. (Source)
Bernard von NotHaus was convicted for making, possessing and selling his own coinsby a Federal Jury . Von NotHaus was the driving force behind the Liberty Dollar program that created real silver and gold coins for people to use as money. The Liberty Dollar was more of an intellectual assault on our money paradigm than anything else. He marketed coins with real intrinsic value so that people could “inflation proof” their savings. His company educated people about what real money was all about while minted these high grade coins.
Money can be anything provided that it has three characteristics; 1. medium of exchange, 2. unit of account, 3. store of Value. Legal tender is government-sanctioned money. The Liberty Dollar never claimed to be legal tender. In his indictment he was charged with “conspiracy with uttering and passing, a coin of silver in resemblance of genuine coins of the United States in the denominations of five dollars and greater, and intended for use as current money.” With that indictment, the Feds conducted a pre-dawn raid on von NotHaus and confiscated $4,000,000 in gold, silver and cash on June 6th, 2009. In the press releaseabout his conviction they claimed that his coins had features associated with legitimate U.S. coinage. Among the features that von NotHaus had on his coins was a dollar sign “$” and the word “dollar” on it. The Constitutional definition of a dollar which was defined in the Coinage Act of 1792 as either 24.75 gr. (troy) of fine gold or 371.25 gr. (troy) of fine silver. These Liberty Dollars are actually a lot closer to the Constitutional version of the dollar, than the dirty green toilet paper the Federal Reserve creates out of thin air.
If having the word “dollar” on money is a conspiracy against the United States and is now “domestic terrorism”, I have very important information to tell the authorities. There is a multi billion dollar well-funded “domestic terrorist” organization in Central Florida, right now. They have their own compound that spans 47 square miles that is very difficult to get into, at least during the summer. They are very secretive about future actions and pump out very slick propaganda so that the world sees things their way. The real “terrorism” comes from a huge multi-national money laundering operation that takes in billions of US Dollars and some of these dollars get recycled into their own subversive terror “dollars”. Somebody in the US Attorney’s office can make a huge career for himself or herself by taking down these much larger “domestic terrorists”. I estimate that their assets are 20,000 times the size of that “Domestic Terrorist” Mastermind Bernard von NotHaus. I even have all the evidence for you for an open and shut, slam-dunk case. So here is the evidence of their “dollars” that Americans might confuse for real money. Make sure I get some Presidential Medal of Freedom out of this deal
That is just the domestic threat, what about the foreign threat? I also have evidence that there is a subversive coalition of countries that are also seeking to destroy the American’s faith in our dollar by creating their own “dollars”. Instead of wasting our time in Iraq, and Libya with their weird dinars, we should conduct pre-dawn raids to seize the assets of these “dollar” countries. I think we should get approval from the UN, since apparently the Congress does not have the power anymore, to invade these countries immediately. Here is the list of the new Axis of Evil that use the subversive “dollar” on their currency; Canada, Grenada, Ecuador, Suriname, El Salvador, Panama, Belize, Singapore, Hong Kong, Taiwan, Brunei, East Timor, Australia, New Zealand and the very “evil nation” of Saint Lucia. Furthermore, I would suggest that the US Government seize all assets of any American citizen conspiring with this enemy by having this “fraudulent” money in their possession. To be safe, we should conduct pre-dawn raids on all US citizens that live within a day’s drive of Canada. These traitors may have given aid, comfort and funding to this new Axis of Evil by having Canadian Dollars in their cup holders of their cars or worse their coin jar. We would not want to these Canadian dollars to be confused with our legal tender. Shudder the thought!
“In coordination with the Department of Justice, on September 14, 2006, the United States Mint issued a press release and warning to American citizens that the Liberty Dollar was “not legal tender.” The U.S. Mint press release and public service announcement stated that the Department of Justice had determined that the use of Liberty Dollars as circulating money was a federal crime.”(Source)
I wrote a very sarcastic piece a week or so ago called,“In Pizza We Trust”. I wrote to the US Mint and said that if they were no longer going to create Silver Eagles, they should create the next best thing, Chuck E. Cheese tokens. This funny but sad article struck at the heart of the problem, our government seems much more concerned with destroying it’s citizen’s money than protecting future generations from crushing debt. In fact any citizen that did buy the Liberty Dollar, actually made money instead of letting inflation destroy their savings. For the US Mint to claim that the Liberty Dollars are not “legal tender” is so stupid. None of his coins said “legal tender” on them. The US Mint has a hard enough time convincing Americans that their real legal tender coins are real money. Legal tender laws are when governments force garbage money on its citizens with institutional intimidation and possible violence to force the citizens to only use that money. They also make it illegal to have any competition to their garbage money. Without the treat of violence from the state, no human in the world would use monopoly money as real money. You certainly would not have to make silver and gold legal tender to force Americans to see the real intrinsic value of these precious metals.
Bernard von NotHaus did not claim his Liberty Dollars were legal tender and no person buying them thought they were. He sold one ounce gold coins for $500, and that coin is now worth $1,400. Meanwhile the dollar has probably lost 50% or more of its value in the past 10 years and now have the purchasing power of $250. Since the creation of the FRN legal tender, the dollar has lost 98% of its value. If you had 5 $20 ($100) St Guadens Double Eagle coins in 1913 they would be worth $7,000 just in gold content value. If you saved $100 in 1913 Federal Reserve Notes, would have the equivalent purchasing power of $2 now. That is what inflation by the privately owned Federal Reserve has done to our country. This case against von NotHaus was simply about the big bad Elite squashing some guy from challenging the Empire of Lies this country has turned into.
“Article I, section 8, clause 5 of the United States Constitution delegates to Congress the power to coin money and to regulate the value thereof. This power was delegated to Congress in order to establish and preserve a uniform standard of value and to insure a singular monetary system for all purchases and debts in the United States, public and private. Along with the power to coin money, Congress has the concurrent power to restrain the circulation of money, which is not issued under its own authority in order to protect and preserve the constitutional currency for the benefit of all citizens of the nation. It is a violation of federal law for individuals, such as von NotHaus, or organizations, such as NORFED, to create private coin or currency systems to compete with the official coinage and currency of the United States.” (Source)
The prosecution cites the Constitution for justification for this case and yet cannot see the quadrillion-dollar monster in our sight, the Federal Reserve. Ben Bernanke has caused more financial terrorism than any other human in history. The Federal Reserve has confiscated the entire wealth of this once great country with their privately owned debt based monetary system. Think about this, the average American is poorer than the average Bangladeshi peasant. The average American has tens of thousands of debt and the average Bangladeshi is just poor with NO debt. Even if you are one of the few Americans that are debt free or your assets are more than your debts, if you include all of the unfunded liabilities and public debt that is written on your family’s heads, you are much poorer in real terms than some beggar in Bangladesh. Don’t worry about that debt, because it is going to disappear in a hyper-inflationary depression that will make the Dark Ages look like child’s play. When it all goes down you can look no further than the criminal mastermind domestic terrorist Bernard von NotHaus for the cause of the collapse of the world economy. Just kidding…
Of course I am being sarcastic about this whole affair, because this whole case is a joke. This country is Trillions of dollars in debt to a group of private bankers who create money out of thin air and then have the chutzpah to charge us interest on this money. To make matters worse, when their buddies get this money in their local banks, they then can create more money out of thin air by using fractional reserve banking. The United States Constitution mandates in Article I, Section 10, Clause 1: “No State shall…make any Thing but gold and silver Coin a Tender in Payment of Debt.” Bernard vonNotHaus created a private company to bring money that actually has value and no debt attached to it. Not one person in a million would think that his money had any thing to do with the legal tender monopoly money the Fed pumps out and our poor country is choking on.
“While these forms of anti-government activities do not involve violence, they are every bit as insidious and represent a clear and present danger to the economic stability of this country,” she added. (Source)
Clear and present danger to the economic stability of this country?! What the hell is this girl smoking?! We are running Trillion dollar deficits every year and she is worried about some old guy minting silver and gold coins?! We have 25%+ unemployment because of the policies of the Federal Reserve and .gov, and Bernard von NotHaus is a “domestic terrorist”?! We have inflation running at it’s highest levels since 1974 and silver coins that say “dollar” on them are a conspiracy against the United States?! We have $700 billion dollar bankster bailouts while Americans are getting thrown out of their houses and the Liberty Dollar is insidious?! Shame on you US Attorney Anne M. Tompkins! Even more shameful is the jury that handed down this ridiculous decision. The jury could have sent a powerful message to the Elite by saying these charges are dismissed. Or maybe even awarded the defendant a $100 million judgment in his favor. I guess that is what you get when people are ignorant of the economic realities of our world. Unfortunately those that are most ignorant, are also the ones most at risk when the dollar collapses.
“We are determined to meet these threats through infiltration, disruption, and dismantling of organizations which seek to challenge the legitimacy of our democratic form of government.”(Source)
First, we are a Constitutional Republic not a democracy; there is a huge difference. One is a rule of law, the other is mob rule. All government officials swear to preserve and protect the Constitution of the United States and the Republic for which it stands from enemies, foreign and domestic; not democracy. What a crazy world we live in where I have to remind a US Attorney of that basic fact! This above quote also telegraphs to us slaves that the government will use CoIntelPro on any organization that undermines this criminal system of inflation and intimidation. What happened to ‘home of the brave and land of the free?’ This is quote is so outrageous, where do they get the authority to conspire against American citizens like this? What is this Nazi Germany or Stalinist Russia? Do we have to fear government intimidation in the United States of America? I am probably on some government watch list because I had the audacity to write the US Mint that they should coin Chuck E. Cheese coins as legal tender. If I should disappear one night to Guantanamo, have a slice of pizza in my name.
In an ironic twist of this case, in the very same state where Bernard von NotHaus was convicted of this “domestic terrorism”, a Republican Legislator Rep. Glen Bradley wants North Carolina to issue its ownlegal tender backed by silver and gold. Rep. Bradley said that, “I think we’re in the process of inflating a dollar bubble that could be very devastating.” This legislation would seek to do what von NotHaus did not do, create another legal tender. Rep. Bradley is correct that we are about to enter a period of hyper-inflation that will destroy the savings of all Americans. This hyper-inflation is true financial terrorism. When a private group of individuals can create money out of thin air and destroy the value of money throughout the world. This is on the back of Utah passing similar legislation. We should encourage this political action at all levels of government and look to create community currencies. You could even use pre-1964 US legal tender, which has 90% silver, to use as your savings.
I would encourage every American to not wait until some sense comes to your local, state and federal government. Take action now to divest yourself of all paper assets and get real tangible assets in your possession. Let the banksters print their toilet paper to infinity, we will continue to change it in for real assets like food, water, supplies, guns, ammo, gold and silver. Buying physical silver is the greatest thing you can and should be doing right now. (Do your own due diligence and study why. Read The Silver Bullet and the Silver Shield, I Get It Now, The Silver Rocket and the Silver Door is Closing.)
American’s should not sit idly by and accept these intimidating government actions. I mean if this is accepted without objection, it is a slippery slope before they come for your bullion, guns, hoard of food or worse.. Call and email these civil servants and educated them on economic realities of the world. This is a great time to help open people’s eyes and maybe bring some of them to our fight for freedom. United States Attorney’s Office Western District of North Carolina Contact: (704) 344-6222 orCharlotte.email@example.com. I would love to hear about their future prosecution Walt Disney for “Domestic Terrorism” because of the Disney Dollars. At the very least I would want them to tone down the intimidating rhetoric of calling Bernard von NotHaus a “Domestic Terrorist.” Maybe they can clarify what other groups the government plans on infiltrating, disrupting, and dismantling? I wonder what we cannot say in this new world order? We sat by quietly when the government tried to cover up Abu Ghraib. If we do not say enough is enough, one day they will use that terror on us at home. (Force yourself to see these pictures of our torture. NSFW.)
“Those that did not see this coming will not know what to do when it gets here.” Jim Puplava.
The collapse of the dollar is a mathematically inevitable event. Those politicians and prosecutors who get ahead of this curve will make historic careers fighting for freedom. I believe that in the 2016 or 2020 presidential election we will have an Aware politician who rose to the highest level of power. This will because he had the courage to fight against the very powerful banking interests that have destroyed this country with their corrupt money. Those that awaken their fellow citizens to this most dramatic event in human history, will be doing the greatest service to their fellow man. If you want to become one of the Awakened, the best and fastest way is through the free Sons of Liberty Academy.
