Dr. Ron Paul’s Weekly Column for March 5 gives us great news about the growing anti-Fed movement and monetary policy in the state of Arizona.
This is another example pioneered by Bernard von NotHaus for citizens, states or other organizations to lead America back to a value based monetary system and protect its citizens from the abuse and monetary rape of its citizens by the federal fiat money.
Audit the Fed is not the only focus of the growing anti-Fed movement. For example, this Wednesday the Arizona Senate Finance and Rules Committees will consider legislation (HB 2014) officially defining gold, silver, and other precious metals as legal tender. The bill also exempts transactions in precious metals from state capital gains taxes, thus ensuring that people are not punished by the taxman for rejecting Federal Reserve notes in favor of gold or silver. Since inflation increases the value of precious metals, these taxes give the government one more way to profit from the Federal Reserve’s currency debasement.
Tomorrow, Wednesday March 8, Dr. Paul will be in Arizona to help rally support for HB 2014, speaking on behalf of the bill before the Arizona Senate Finance Committee at 9:00 a.m. He will also be speaking at a rally at noon at the Arizona state capitol. He hopes every supporter of sound money in the Phoenix area joins him to show their support for ending the Fed’s money monopoly.
Inside President Trump’s otherwise “standard Trump stump speech” at CPAC was nestled what might be a most intriguing observation:
Global cooperation, dealing with other countries, getting along with other countries is good, it’s very important. But there is no such thing as a global anthem, a global currency or a global flag. This is the United States of America that I’m representing.
Mr. Benko explains that there is, in fact a global currency. It is called the U.S. Dollar. He then does a superb job of explaining a bit of the history, the problems this created, and what President Trump’s options are if he indeed wants to “Make America Great Again.”
Mr. Benko: “As I have repeatedly observed Donald Trump shows a strong affinity for gold. He has also shown a keen intuitive grasp of how the gold standard was crucial to having made America great.”
What would be the outcome of President Trump’s following his instincts and going for the gold?
Today I did an interview with Gary Franchi of The Next News Network. I invite you to go to You Tube and view the video. Gary’s team did an awesome job, and I encourage you to please share the video far and wide.
There have been a lot of very important, very significant political and geopolitical developments and they can all impact gold or commodities one way or another…
I do have the sense that we’re getting closer to some very significant break in the system…
This is a great interviewSprott’s Thoughts publication did with Jim Rickards, following a recent keynote presentation at the Sprott Natural Resource Symposium. James G. Rickards is a best-selling author and advisor to the U.S. Department of Defense and Intelligence Communities.
Everyone knows that gold used to be money but most people don’t think of it as money today. I do personally and that’s how I analyze it, but that’s not widespread. Most people don’t think gold is money. They think it’s a commodity. I disagree. I think its money.
So gold used to be money. It’s not really money today except to a few people like me. I think it will be money again in the future.
What is money? I gave a lot of illustrations; feathers, clam shells, euros, gold, silver, beads, digital money, credit cards, and bitcoin. The truth is they’re all money or have been money at certain times. There were certainly times and places when feathers or clam shells were money. Not so much today but that used to be true in certain societies.
People like to criticize gold or paper dollars or bitcoin and they say well, “It’s not backed up by anything.” The dollar is not backed up by anything or bitcoin is not backed up by anything. I make the point that all forms of money are backed up by one thing—confidence.
So I expect that when governments suddenly wake up one day and say, “Wait a second, all these people we tried to chase out of paper money, they’re going into gold.”—at that point, there will be a war on gold.
If you and I have confidence that something is money, then its money….
Historically, the British haven’t been too keen on gold. Now that post-Brexit, the future is so unknown and the effect on the economy so uncertain, they are seeking a safe haven in both gold and silver to protect their net worth. They are worried about bank failures and inflation. They are worried about losing their life savings.
Reuters reports on one London-based property developer who said “the current sense of panic over the UK financial system was unlike anything he had ever seen.
‘I just can’t believe what’s going on,’ he said, asking not to be named. ‘Projects that were meant to happen now haven’t and the last thing I would do right now is buy another property.’
Instead, he has bought £350,000 worth of gold and plans to hold it for at least the next two years.”
Britain’s departure from the European Union could send shock waves across the global economy and threaten more than a trillion dollars in investment and trade with the United States, reports The Washington Post.
From Zero Hedge “The truth as all those who buy gold after the devaluation learn, is that for gold to be a store of value and preserve purchasing power it has to be acquired before some catastrophic, devaluing event, which as yesterday’s Brexit showed, tends to be utterly unpredictable.”
Gold and silver are real money. REAL money is inflation proof. With the US dollar losing value at an alarming rate and more bailouts with much
higher National Debt continuing to grow, now is the time to take monetary matters into your own hand and protect your money… before it is too late.
“highlights the fact that people all over the world are fed up with politicians, central banks and financial institutions working together to further degrade our rights and pillage our wealth. The Brexit vote is the latest evidence of this, but so, too, is the rise of Donald Trump’s popularity in America.”
“The anti-establishment movement is pushing back and with it will come collapse of the status quo, panic and violence. Anytime throughout history that confidence in the system has been lost and chaos is the norm, precious metals become the only safe haven asset and currency of last resort.”
I advise that you trade a hefty portion of your worthless Federal Reserve Notes (FRN) for silver or gold before it’s too late. The Trump Dollar would be a great place to start!
The last few days I was attending a coin convention in Orlando, Florida and did a couple of video shoots that I will post soon. Video shoots went well… the proof is in the pudding… or as they say on the floor of the editing booth…
Since I returned from the coin convention… I am swamped with a backlog that seems to be unending. I am now home and recuperating from my travels. The air-conditioning just quit working so it is HOT as h*ll in here as its 97 today. I hope you can stay cool where you are.
One of the few freedoms I see that we still have left to us, is the freedom to buy real money; i.e. gold and silver. Yes, this is another shameless plug for the Trump Dollar. Of course I want you to buy some gold and/or silver from me. Own some Free Speech that is Actually Worth Something.
The “2016 Trump Dollar” is a clear call for freedom of political speech and an expression of distrust of the entrenched political class. It was created to recognize Donald Trump’s heroic presidential candidacy and popularize it with collectors and sound-money supporters. It was designed by Bernard von NotHaus, the monetary architect of the Liberty Dollar. That’s me.
Tyler Durden, over at Zero Hedge, best expressed today, my sentiments about the current state of freedom in America.
“Moral law no longer governs. Only the law. And that can be anything. There are no limits whatsoever on what may be done to us; only that a law be enacted (and not even that). We are bound to obey, regardless. The king’s men could simply take our things, search our persons on whim. The colonists objected to such treatment and cited such treatment among the reasons for their decision to secede. Is it not a fact that the government’s men (and women) can simply take our things? Search us on whim? Have you traveled recently?” Read his post HERE.
