Are You Free, Strawman?
by Unknown (11/18/2000)
A good overview on how the government 'legally' lays claim to our bodies and labors -- our 'person'. We are registered as collateral for government bonds (i.e. the public debt) and have essentially the rights of a slave. Read on...
Bankers' Central Bank Warns US Bubble Will Pop
US Blackout Of Story
by John Hoefle (06/13/2000)
The Bank for International Settlements (BIS), in a report issued on June 5, 2000, and in a major international press conference accompanying the release of the report at its headquarters in Basel, Switzerland the same day, confirmed that a global financial crash is right around the corner. While that assessment has been given banner headlines throughout Europe, the warning has been blacked out of the U.S. press. The story was even in the international editions of the Wall Street Journal, NY Times and Washington Post (IHT) and was on all the wires, but there was a total blackout in their US editions and in all but a few media here.
Billions for the Bankers
Debt for the People
by Pastor Sheldon Emry
The Real Story of the Money Control Over America. Billions for the Bankers started out as a small pamphlet back in the 60s. In later life Pastor Emry was able to improve it and expand it into book form, with illustrations.
Billions for the Bankers - Canadian Version

In 1867 the Fathers of Confederation gave the federal government (under Section 91 of the British North America Act) the right to create Canada's money supply. However, our federal government has given this right to the private chartered banks. Instead of getting our money supply for the cost of printing, our federal government now borrows the money from the chartered banks and pays over $40 billion per year interest. Payment of this interest took 33% of all the taxes collected in the last fiscal year. This means all businesses, farmers and individuals also have to borrow our money supply. Because money to pay this interest is never issued, we have to borrow the money to pay the interest. Thus borrowing drives all of us, including our governments, deeper and deeper into debt.
Billions for the Bankers, Debt for the People

"If the American people ever allow private banks to control the issue of their money, first by inflation and then by deflation, the banks and corporations that will grow up around them (around the banks), will deprive the people of their property until their children will wake up homeless on the continent their fathers conquered." - Thomas Jefferson
Can the U.S. Return to a Gold Standard?
by Alan Greenspan (09/01/1981)
Can a leopard change his spots...? Following is a verbatim article published in the Wall Street Journal on September 1, 1981. Its author is Alan Greenspan, who at the time was a partner in Townsend-Greenspan & Co. - an economic consulting firm. It is relevant and very significant to also know that Greenspan was the Chairman of the Council of Economic Advisors from 1974 to 1977, a period witnessing dramatic changes in the price of gold.
Central Banks, Gold, and the Decline of the Dollar
by Robert Batemarco (11/01/1995)
Are inflation, currency depreciation, and business cycles inevitable facts of life? Are they part of the very laws of nature? Or do their origins stem from the actions of man?

Fraud Shown in Passage of 16th Amendment
by Larry Becraft (04/01/1989)
The federal government and its tax agencies, supported by our congressmen, would like for us to believe that the power of the government to tax was greatly changed by the ratification of the Sixteenth Amendment in February 1913. Having been denied the right to tax incomes by a Supreme Court decision in 1895, Uncle Sam claims that, once this Amendment was ratified, a constitutional deficiency was corrected by the Amendment and that after 1913, it had a legal right to claim a portion of income of every American in taxes.
Gold and Economic Freedom

Alan Greenspan circa 1967
Greenspan has already lost the inflation fight
by Albert Friedberg (06/17/2000)
The corset is off consumer prices. Core consumer price inflation (even excluding tobacco) has risen sharply, as measured by either the personal consumption deflator (almost 3% year-over-year) or the core CPI (a shade above 2%).
Greenspan: Still Going for the Gold
by Judy Shelton (05/15/1997)
If patience is a virtue, Alan Greenspan is a saint. For more than three decades he has endeavored to guide the nation toward sound money -- first as a radical intellectual, then as an business economist and presidential adviser, and currently as chairman of Board of Governors of the Federal Reserve System. His critics on the left seem unable to comprehend the destructive consequences of irresponsible fiscal policy and accommodative monetary policy. His critics on the right simply cannot appreciate the long-term perspective of Greenspan, a man who argued powerfully in the 1960s that "gold and economic freedom are inseparable" and who has steadfastly, albeit slowly, continued to pursue the realization of his intellectual ideals in the economic sphere. Arbitrary and capricious, he is not.

Judge Sturges' Speech
Hard Money Advocated -- The Duty of Democrats
by New York Times (09/16/1875)
Speech at the New York Democratic Convention, September 16, 1875 given by Judge Sturges: "Then what is our duty? Our duty is to put men at the helm of the National and State Governments who will curtail these expenses and lop off all that are unnecessary until their promises are up to par, [great applause,] and then repeal your legal-tender act. That is resumption, and not by legislative enactment."
Manipulation of Gold Market Keeps on 'Truckin'
by Bill Murphy (06/17/2000)
No market trades like this for so long. The price of oil is surging, commodity prices are going up, there is record gold demand and producers like Normandy are delivering into hedges, reducing here-to-for supply. The price of gold should be trending higher, not ALWAYS stopping at $290.

Pay The Piper! Call The Tune!
by Elan (12/22/2011)
The debt-money system generates serious problems. One of these is that private banks can create only the amount of the loan; they cannot create the money needed to pay the interest on that loan. There is never, therefore, enough money in the system. This makes growth imperative. The system must grow or die. Debt and the interest on debt grow faster than money and income because debt is the only way to create new money. If the money supply cannot keep up to the cost of debt and interest, the economy will stall. When the burden of debt exceeds the capacity of debtors to pay, or the willingness of lenders to lend, the system must fail.
Rebellion or Revolution?

Sorry, Mr. Franklin, “We’re All Democrats Now”
by Ron Paul (01/29/2003)
At the close of the Constitutional Conventional in 1787, Benjamin Franklin told an inquisitive citizen that the delegates to the Constitutional Convention gave the people “a Republic, if you can keep it.” We should apologize to Mr. Franklin. It is obvious that the Republic is gone, for we are wallowing in a pure democracy against which the Founders had strongly warned... (Speech before House of Representatives, Jan 29, 2003)
Taxes And The Federal Reserve
A Short Primer
by John R. Prukop (04/25/2000)
Imagine that you own a business where no one in government knows who you are, where the IRS never questioned you, and no one in government dared to approach or reproach you. Imagine that you are king of the mountain, and ignorant American citizens are pay you over $17.5 MILLION PER HOUR -- EVERY DAY! Impossible? Truth is stranger than fiction.
