Another Example of Hypocrisy & Tyranny at the Highest Level...

But what else can we expect from this UN-Constitutionally unlimited and unaccountable government We the People have created and allowed to fester over centuries?

Let's see how unjust and hypocritical the Neo-Amerikan INjustice system has acted this time, shall we?

Bernard von NotHaus of 67 years, a man who shares my first name and whom I've enjoyed the pleasure of meeting — a true patriot, unlike the unlawful band of criminals who currently hold public offices at all levels and departments of government — now faces a 15 year jail term for minting real silver coins called "Liberty Dollars" via his minting company NORFED, and selling them to voluntary customers who would rather hold real "money", rather than the fraudulent "Federal Reserve Notes" which the masses of Americans use daily for "legal tender".

Of course, NORFED never called Liberty Dollars "legal tender", nor pushed them on people as being such, yet included 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."

In announcing the verdict, prosecuting US Attorney Anne Tompkins is quoted as saying:

“Attempts to undermine the legitimate currency* of this country are simply a unique form of domestic terrorism. 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. 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."

* "Legitimate Currency"?  What is legitimate at all about Federal Reserve Notes?

Dear Miss Tompkins and your ilk who are currently holding power over a would be otherwise free people of America, and who have been aiding and abetting the real domestic terrorists, if you truly wish to dismantle insidious organizations that represent a clear and present danger to the economic stability of this country and which seek to challenge the legitimacy of our democratic form of government while operating outside of the US Constitution, then why not put Ben Bernanke and the entire lot of those running the Federal Reserve on trial for high treason against We the People of the United States of America???

After all, the Federal Reserve has been in total control over the coinage of money, even though the US Constitution grants this power to Congress only.  That fact that the Federal Reserve — a private organization not much different than NORFED, except they are run by crooks — has been unlawfully controlling the money system of the American people, is one of the long running violation against the US Constitution, and has been cited by the We the People Foundation & Congress, chaired by Bob Schulz, as part of the process of repeated attempts to hold the US government accountable through the Accountability (Petitioning for Redress) Clause of the First Amendment.

And of course, not only have our efforts in exercising the Accountability Clause been ignored, but the US Supreme Court has also refused to perform its duty in officially defining the clause.  Yet there are still Americans who remain entirely oblivious to such injustices at the highest levels of government and would rather blame some supposed opposing political party?

Now, here we are witness to the US Attorney sentencing an innocent man of 67 years to prison for 15 years for legally minting legitimate silver coins having real value and selling them to voluntary customers, while it turns a blind eye to another private organization whom since 1913 has been engaging in the fraudulent act of fractional reserve banking and usurping power and authority over Congrss' power to coin money via fraudulent "US Dollars".

In other words, you send an innocent man to prison for acting legally, while you do nothing to stop the illegal actions of the Federal Reserve...


This verdict by the US Attorney's Office (Western District of NC), further exemplifies that this so called "US Federal Government" has been hijacked by criminals posing to be defenders of freedom that are actually hypocrites who either apparently forgot they took an oath of office to uphold the US Constitution and defend the unalienable rights of the individual, or are violating their duties deliberately and should also be tried for high treason against the American People, the US Constitution, and the Creator Himself.

The word "God" should be removed from Federal Reserve Notes to prevent the attempt of making our Creator an accomplice to theft of countless Americans in past and future generations!

The article below by one Chris Duane is worth reading.  Too bad no one in the US Attorney's office will probably read any of this, but then again, it remains apparent that the overwhelming majority of anti-liberty & anti-American individuals within these various so called "American" alphabet soup organizations running ruining this country give a damn anyway.

In Liberty, wherever it's permitted...

When one understands the true nature of the Federal Reserve system, one rightfully asks who is the Patriot and who is the terrorist? How much longer, I wonder, before the People wake up?

The New Face Of Terror
Chris Duane

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.The world hit a whole new level of crazy today. So crazy that even I might be at a loss for words to describe how screwed up this is
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 olds 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 coins by 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 $4,000,000 in gold, silver and cash on June 6th, 2009. In the press release about his conviction they claimed that his coins had features associated with legitimate U.S. coinage. Among the features that von NotHaus had on his coins was a dollar sign "$" 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

Detailed Satellite Images Of the "Terrorist" Compound

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.

Bomb, Bomb, Bomb Saint Lucia!


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.

Please Shut Silver Shield Up!!!

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)

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.Clear and present danger to the economic stability of this country?! What the hell is this girl smoking?!
"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 ShieldI Get It NowThe Silver Rocket and the Silver Door is Closing.)

US Attorney Anne Tompkins
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.public@ic.fbi.gov. 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.
Watch out! A "Domestic Terrorist" with a sword!
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.

  1. a comment from a friend who is apparently in disagreement:

    Nice rant. To bad your basic premise was wrong. In all my contacts with the wing nut, he was purposely trying to confuse the fact that liberty dollars were not US legal $$$ and were but a mere private collector coin, which the user could decide to accept or not, but ultimately they were not US currency. You and I understood the difference but many did not and he prayed on those people. How much of a profit did he make on each one he sold do you think? No one debates the legality of the coin. The issue is he was trying to confuse people that it was legal tender. He also made a personal profit on selling these coins (his real objective) and was nothing more than a con man. Apparently he conned you as well.

    my reply:

    in regards to your comments, apparently the US Attorney debates the legality of the coin.  they call FRN's "legitimate", and anything else "illegitimate".  they claimed NORFED was counterfeiting, right?  that was in fact one of the original claims when the FEDs raided NORFED and STOLE coins which had ALREADY BEEN purchased by voluntary customers.  (BTW, what about all the LD coins our Federal Government stole from customers which never got returned or reimbursed?)

    where does it say on the coin or any of the marketing material that they are legal tender?  and in truth, the ONLY "money" which is Constitutionally -- and therefore LEGALLY -- legitimate to be used as "money" IS silver and gold.  however, all three branches of Federal government has conveniently ignored this truth, highlighted in this case which was tried in this mock court of folly.

    and what is the crime in making a personal profit on selling silver & gold coins?  has Neo-Amerika already come to the point in its Socialism/Fascism conversion that its people think it's wrong to make a profit?

    most noteworthy however was my fundamental point in writing what you call my "rant" ;-) -- do you realize that the Federal Reserve has been making a major (i mean MAJOR ) personal profit (it is a private bank) on ripping off the American public since 1913?

    so presuming for a moment that you are correct and if Bernard received just punishment for his "crime" of making a personal profit for misrepresenting the product he was selling to the public, AND for "trying to confuse people that LD's are legal tender", then how much greater just punishment should the directors of the FED-R receive for making a personal profit on misrepresenting the product they have been forcing the American public to use as "money", while they engage in the unethical and immoral practice of fractional banking -- making "money" from the thin air? -- which is the REAL culprit undermining the American economic system since 1913?

    weighing on a balanced scale, i'd say they might should get off easy with the punishment of death for high treason against the US Constitution, against a century's worth of American generations, and against liberty itself!


  2. ... continued

    but let's get to the numbers in this blame game we're playing and see how i might have gotten "conned", as you suggest.  i purchased a one ounce "$10" Liberty Dollar back around '01-'02 for about $9 at one of the patriot meetings (they got discounts on larger purchases).  i still have it.  it's worth how much today, $30 or more?  yeah, i got "conned"!  LOL!  8-)

    i evaluated the product being offered to me in a voluntary sale, realized that i could take advantage of the reduced price due to patriot network group discount, and went for it.  i also purchased a couple others at the asking price of about 5% ~ 10% over the spot silver price (since it is a minted coin rather than a silver slug).  i made a good purchase on "money" that increases in value, rather than decreases in value.  so did i really get "conned"?  after all, to this day i don't feel conned in any of those purchases.

    now, i don't have perfect agreement with every facet of NORFED protocol, or with every single action of its representatives -- even the ones i am friends with.  for example, at the end of one of our monday night socials, myself and a couple other libertarians did witness Kevin Innes giving a "$20" LD silver coin to pay for his dinner when the price of silver was only around $12.  (still, in hindsight, El Chapala's came off making money on that deal with the current price of silver! ;-)

    however, that is when i began to take issue with their coins, but i still supported their efforts to challenge the Federal Reserve system.  then at some point NORFED began minting the same one ounce silver coins with "$50" on it, when silver was only around "$25-$30" per ounce (at one point).

    at that point, myself and a few others made it clear to Kevin that we had some problems with their protocol -- not minting the coins themselves or calling them "Liberty Dollars", but that by including a printed value on the coins would always be differing from the actual value of silver or gold at any given point.  of course, we all understood and agreed with the fact that a minted coin is worth more than a slug of one ounce silver, but not more than ~5% of the value.

    so, when a bunch of us (including Kevin) traveled up to DC for the "Ron Paul March on DC" during the summer of 2008 (i think), we had a major argument about the matter, explaining to Kevin that many "libertarians" disagreed with NORFED's putting a "dollar value" on the coins.  we suggested that NORFED should have RATHER simply imprinted the weight and left it at that.

    even so, it is up to the buyer of anything to determine whether or not the vale placed on the item is worth the value they themselves, or the market, places upon the item prior to purchase.  i was all good with paying a couple extra bucks for nicely minted coins, but not several dollars.  at more than 5% markup, i'd rather simply purchase silver coins which aren't so nicely minted for less than a 5% markup.


  3. ... continued

    regardless, there was never any confusion generated by the LD or its presentation, except perhaps for the incident where we caught Kevin passing the coin marked "$20" at El Chapala when it was only (at the time) worth around $12 or so.  however, i cannot confirm that he did this everywhere, and i also cannot confirm that Bernard did so at all.

    so perhaps the only real crime which was committed, if any, was marking a silver/gold coin with an overly inflated dollar amount.  mine is still marked $10, but i sure wouldn't let it go for that little!  so really, anyone thinking about accepting a silver/gold coin should always educate themselves as to its value... INCLUDING and ESPECIALLY those issued by the freakin' Federal Reserve!

    but the "true crime" committed, as viewed by the evil powers that continue to extort Americans (since 1913), was to challenge the FED's fake money with real silver & gold.

    these evil people will attack anyone who attempts to compete against their illegitimate currency with REAL currency, because they know there is no competition.  they know that if the American monetary and economic market was allowed to be free, their fraudulent scheme would soon collapse and the American people would again begin to prosper.

    this is why they will not allow a free market to exist with regard to the fraudulent monetary system -- they don't want a legit monetary system... they WANT to keep increasing their own wealth while the rest of America collapses!

    this is one of the most important issues our country faces and most people would rather just be blinded and not address it.  the elitists who have control over the political duopoly desire nothing more than to squash any competition with tyranny -- they abhor freedom and will stop at nothing to continually squash liberty.

    thankfully, Ron Paul has been pushing this issue for decades and we can now have some hope that we might actually finally mandate a Federal Reserve audit... we can only hope.

    so sure, if anyone wants to claim that the American justice system prevailed with regard to the sentencing of Bernard von Nothaus to 15 years in prison for his "crimes", then one should also at least be consistent with regard to such a method of sentencing judgement and apply the same toward those who have been perpetrating similarly worse crimes.

    for all those who have a different viewpoint on all this, i guess i just cannot understand the logic one uses to arrive at that viewpoint, as it is completely foreign to my understanding of rule by law and equal protection under the law.  to simplify, i just call it "hypocrisy", and i cite that it is occurring at the highest levels of this Neo-Amerikan government, which i refuse to call "mine".


  4. The "Crime" of Private Money
