Secession and Money

September 26, 2012

By Russell D. Longcore

I have an acquaintance in the Patriot Movement name of Sam Kerodin. Sam has a website at www.iiipercent.blogspot.com Sam is hardcore, to say the least. I respect him and his efforts.

The name of his blog is derived from the Three Percent. Historians state that about three percent of Colonials took up arms and challenged King George in the Secession of 1776.

Recently, Sam and some friends have brainstormed a terrific idea to start a new firearms manufacturing company named III Arms. www.iiiarms.blogspot.com. They will begin manufacturing the 1911 pistols and battle rifles on the AR platform.

They have also taken a decided step toward secession, as they intend to create a liberty community in the New American Redoubt. They have chosen Idaho as their new home. The weapons manufacturing facility will be at the center of their new Galt’s Gulch-like planned community, named The Citadel.

In a recent posting at Three Percent Patriots, there was a recommendation to look at the Lakota Nation and what they are doing about money. Specifically, the Lakota Sioux nation has a link to the Free Lakota Bank. This South Dakota bank is setting up bank accounts that only accept precious metals coins for deposit and the bank has a 100% reserve requirement. So this bank is repudiating the fiat money system AND the fractional reserve system at once. Kudos to Free Lakota Bank.

The bank links to a mint at www.aocsmint.com, where you can trade in your Federal Reserve notes for gold, silver or copper coins of .999% purity. The concept is excellent. The design of some of the coins is flawed. If you look at some of the coins, you will see that they have a stamped value. There is a one-ounce gold coin that says “Two Thousand” on its face. I saw another Silver coin that had the Dollar sign ($) in the design.

Very bad. Very bad indeed.

Washington might consider these coins to be counterfeit currency. And you know that one counterfeiter with guns will run all the other counterfeiters out of business. Ask Bernard von NotHaus of Liberty Dollar how the Feds regard alternate currencies, even when your currency are strictly warehouse receipts. Federal prosecutors successfully argued that he was trying to pass off the silver coins as U.S. currency. Coming in denominations of 5, 10, 20, and 50, the Liberty Dollars also featured a dollar sign, the word “dollar” and the motto “Trust in God.” He was convicted and got a 15 year prison sentence.

Here is the lesson about money for all lovers of liberty and advocates of secession.

In a new nation/state, freshly seceded from the United States of America, it will be crucial to establish a new monetary system. Anything even remotely resembling the American money system will fail. The new nation/state must utterly forsake legal tender laws in favor of the free market.

The free market is perfectly capable of determining what will be used as money. In the Colonial days of the 18th Century, the most prevalent money used was the Spanish Silver Dollar. It was one ounce of silver. It was ALL ABOUT the weight, not the value.

The Coinage Act of 1792 stipulated that a US Silver Dollar contain 374 ¼ grains of .999 pure silver. The first thing the Act did to screw up the money was stamp various values on the coins, such as $5,$10, $50 and so on.

The Act also prescribed the penalty for counterfeiting as death. I like that part.

But I digress.

If new nation/states are going to be successful with the Power of the Purse, they will have to allow the free market to determine what money is and what its value will be.

IT’S ALL ABOUT THE WEIGHT

In the beginning of the nation/state, I predict that the most obvious coins will be the initial money. That will be American junk silver and coins from other nations, such as Canadian Maple Leaf silver coins, silver bars, Krugerrand gold coins and gold bars. Those weights are already in the possession of individuals, and will jump-start the new economy. More choices in free market money will emerge quickly.

Private mints will spring up that issue precious metal coins in various weights and various purities. The reason for this is to facilitate transactions of varying size, even down to pennies. In a new nation, 100% copper pennies will still be a good idea, since copper is an accepted money unit now. The spot price for copper is presently higher than the face value of US copper pennies. But remember that those prices are denominated in US dollars, which are going to dissolve in hyperinflation soon.

With the advancement of technology, a bank like The Free Lakota Bank could accept precious metals deposits, and people could use a debit card to transfer weights to other depositors in business transactions. A person could carry a pouch of coins or a debit card or both. The bank could issue paper money redeemable in precious metals, but that would be up to the free market to decide. The new national government WOULD NOT have a national currency.

The only law that seems necessary in the new nation/state’s constitution regarding money would be a criminal penalty for counterfeiting, which is basically an act of fraud and theft. I still like the death penalty for this.

Secession is the only hope for individual liberty and property rights in North America.

QE3: The Beginning Of The End

September 16, 2012

By Russell D. Longcore

The Federal Reserve flushed the toilet Thursday…and by extension Washington and the US economy are beginning to pick up speed as they circle the drain.

Federal Reserve Chairman Ben Bernanke announced Thursday September 13th that the Fed would be buying $40 Billion per month in mortgage-backed securities indefinitely into the future. The reason he gave was to “see more progress (in job growth)”. He said “the program should increase downward pressure on interest rates,” supposedly to encourage more home sales and refinancing.

When challenged about low interest rates hurting savers, Bernanke said the low rates help the value of homes. What he does not say is that the entire housing market is built upon a balloon of debt, and that home values are only where they are today because of inflation.

The Federal Reserve is a private consortium of banks whose sole reason for existence is to maintain the solvency of the banks. Buying mortgage-backed securities won’t help you and it won’t help me. But it will strengthen the bottom line of the member banks. Also remember that banks that participate in the fractional reserve system (ALL BANKS) have basically only one product…loans. Abraham Maslow said, “When all you have is a hammer, everything looks like a nail.” Banks only see one thing…debt.

And hear me loud and clear. This is not all of QE3. The Fed will quietly continue to print TRILLIONS of dollars and flood the world with them. Today’s announcement is akin to a magician distracting you with his left hand while the magic trick is being done with his right hand.

I want you to understand how dreadfully serious QE3 is. QE1 and QE2 were stimulus packages that utterly failed. But 1 and 2 were limited in amounts. QE3 has no outer or upper limit. The Federal Reserve will print as much money as they desire or need to keep the charade going. That means that hyperinflation is both guaranteed and imminent.

John Williams, owner and editor of Shadowstats.com, predicts that hyperinflation will hit America in 2014. That is 15 months from now. That means that anything that is either greenback currency, or any investment tied to Federal Reserve currency, will very rapidly lose its value.

Let me lay out the scenario for you:

1. There is no fix for Washington’s runaway spending. Even if Washington confiscated ALL the income generated in the American economy, DC would still be insolvent. If DC cut out all government spending except Social Security and Medicare, they would still be insolvent. There is no way to bring the system back into fiscal correctness where DC only spent what it takes in.

2. The Federal Reserve cannot even acknowledge or discuss the truth about the spending problem. If the Fed admitted that QE 1 and 2 were failures, they could certainly not justify QE3. And if they admitted that they can do nothing else but continue to issue more fiat money, they would expose the entire world financial system as the counterfeiting scheme it truly is. If the Fed chairman confessed that everything he has done has failed, he would likely get fired. Remember what Paul Volker did 30 years ago. He allowed interest rates to rise until they were north of 20%, and it brought some needed correction into markets. What Volker did worked. What Bernanke has done has not worked. But he cannot now turn an about face and do what Volker did. Bernanke believes in regulating interest rates at nearly zero percent, which only enriches the banksters and punishes anyone who is an investor or saver. Investing and saving is where capital comes from. And there are trillions of dollars in cash in America’s business that the businesses refuse to invest because of the Fed.

3. There will be a worldwide debt selloff.Think about your own situation. If you had a wad of cash stashed under the mattress, and you knew that it would quickly become worthless, what would YOU do? You would try to spend it or trade it for something of value. Nations are no different. Nations are people…governments are people. When the rest of the nations of the world that hold US Securities understand that QE3 will flood the world with dollars that are worth less and less, those nations will begin accelerating their selling of US Bonds. But who will buy them? The rest of the world understands the scheme, because kings and governments have debauched their monies for millennia. The world financial system today relies upon inflation simply to keep going. And DC and The Fed know that they can pay their debts with Dollars, even though they are becoming worthless. But the inflation rate will now begin to accelerate until it is a fire that cannot be quenched.

4. The Fed is the buyer of last resort. They MUST buy the debt held by the world.Why? (A) To prevent anybody holding US securities from selling too many too fast. Dumping securities would cause a global bond collapse. A “collapse” is what happens when the prices of bonds fall precipitously (too many bonds for sale at once) at the same time demand dries up. That means that nobody wants US Securities at any price. And all the nations…all the massive institutional investors…ALL know this. But as in #3 above, bondholders are going to know that the money they get paid for the US securities will be worth less and less. (B) Eventually, when Washington holds its monthly bond auctions, there won’t be any buyers…that is, except the Federal Reserve.

5. Here comes hyperinflation. All our lives we have accepted an inflation rate of 3-4% a year as normal. As QE3 moves forward, inflation (which is actually now at about 8-9% per year) will quickly change to 8-9% per month. Shortly, 8-9% per week will jolt us. And THEN it will get worse. If you don’t know what happened to the money in Zimbabwe, do a Google search. A couple years ago, I bought 160 trillion of Zimbabwe money and it cost me $3.00. That will happen here in America.

Hyperinflation destroys the lower and middle classes. Think about it. If you are a middle class person, working and earning a living, you only have just so much discretionary income in your budget. You may even have no discretionary income in your budget, and your outgo exceeds your income. If prices double on the things you buy to survive, what will you do? But think about the upper class…the wealthy. They can more easily ride out a doubling of prices, since their living expenses are a smaller percentage of their income and assets. Inflation has always been the cruelest way for governments to steal from their citizens, and it has been done for millennia.

6. Then cometh the collapse of the West. Unless you get your assets out of anything that is tied to the US Dollar and into gold and silver and other hard assets, YOU. WILL. LOSE. EVERYTHING. At some point, anybody selling anything will stop accepting Federal Reserve notes in payment. But before that, America will descend into chaos, violence, crime and death on a level never before witnessed.

7. From the ashes of this historic cataclysm, groups of individuals will form that want to establish new nations of their own. And when DC has collapsed, and its counterfeiter The Federal Reserve loses control, there will be little to prevent secession and liberty.

If you do not believe that this scenario can happen or will happen, I invite you to tell me about a reasonable alternative scenario in which America digs its way out of this morass.

The year 2014 is only 15 months away. Washington and the Federal Reserve are your enemies. They only care about their own survival.

The only thing you should be concerned about right now is CAPITAL PRESERVATION. FORGET RETURN ON INVESTMENT. Get out of your 401K and IRAs. Take the penalties and get your cash. Get your money out of anything and everything that is tied to the US Dollar. I recommend that you buy a big safe for your home from Liberty Safes. I recommend that you take your cash and buy 50% gold, 30% silver and keep 20% in US Cash.You can afford to manage 20% of your savings as hyperinflation begins, but you cannot afford to lose 100% of your money. Put your hard assets in the safe. Get smart!

Secession is the only hope for individual liberty and property rights in North America.

We Are Not Powerless: Resisting Financial Feudalism

May 3, 2012

By Charles Hugh Smith
www.OfTwoMinds.com

It’s comforting to think “I can’t do anything to resist the Central State and its financial Plutocracy,” but it’s not true. There are many of acts of resistance you can pursue in your daily life; here are 12 perfectly legal ones.

That we are powerless is one of the key social control myths constantly promoted by the Status Quo. What better way to keep the serfs passive than to reinforce a belief in their powerlessness against the expansive Central State and its financial feudalism?

But we are not powerless. Our complicity gives the aristocracy its power. Remove our complicity and the aristocracy falls.

The pathway of dissent is to resist financial feudalism and its enforcer, the expansive Central State. Here are twelve paths of resistance any adult can legally pursue in the course of their daily lives:

1. Support the decentralized, non-market economy. The core ideology of consumerism and financialization is that non-market assets and experiences have no status or financial value. This includes social capital, meals with friends, projects done cooperatively with friends, home gardens and thousands of other decentralized activities that cannot be financialized into centralized market transactions. Identity and social status are established in the non-market economy by collaboration, sharing, conviviality and generosity. Decentralized generally means localized; farmers markets are examples of local market economies where the transactions are in cash (so banks can’t skim transactions fees) and the money stays in the local economy rather than flowing to some distant concentration of capital.

If you start valuing non-market assets and experiences as the most important markers of high status, you are resisting both financialization and consumerism.

Top-down centralized “solutions” imposed by the Central State are the problem, not the solution, as they further the concentration of wealth and power into unstable monocultures. Stop looking to overly complex “reforms” and centralized solutions to unsustainable systems and start exploring decentralized, localized solutions that bypass both the Central State and its financial aristocracy.

2. Stop participating in financialization. Financialization is the insidious imperative of the financial aristocracy that seeks to turn every interaction into a financial transaction that can be charged a fee and all assets into financialized instruments that can be sold for immensely profitable transaction fees.

As the finances of local governments implode under the weight of their protected fiefdoms, many are heeding the siren song of financialization as a temporary (and inevitably disastrous) “fix” to their structural insolvency. For example, the revenue stream from parking meters is financialized into an asset that is sold to a private corporation. When parking fees double, the residents of the city have no recourse via democracy or petition, as the meters in their city are now “owned” by a distant concentration of capital that can double late fees, charge outrageous transaction costs, etc., at will.

This is how financialization inevitably transitions into financial tyranny.

The erosion of America’s middle class financial security has several structural causes, but chief among them was the financialization of the housing market. This led to a bubble of credit and housing valuations and the widespread extraction of equity for consumption—the classic “windfall” that financialization always produces in its first toxic blush. Mortgage debt doubled from $5 trillion to $10 trillion in the bubble, and now America’s indentured homeowners “own” negative equity of $4 trillion. That is, the difference between the market value of the homes they ostensibly “own” and the mortgages they took on to buy the homes is negative $4 trillion.

3. Redefine self-interest to exclude debt-servitude and dependence on consumerism and the Central State. Unless you are long retired and have no other option, minimize reliance on the State. Reliance on the State weakens the correlation between sustained effort and gain, so the work ethic and entrepreneurism both atrophy as they no longer offer competitive advantages in a system where bread and circuses are guaranteed by the State.

4. Act on your awareness that the nature of prosperity and financial security is changing. Dependence on centralized concentrations of power (Wall Street and the Central State) is now an extremely risky wager that what is demonstrably unsustainable will magically become sustainable at some distant point in time via pixie dust or the intervention of aliens from Alpha Centuri. Security flows from resilience, self-reliance, decentralized, diversified sources of income and abundant social capital.

5. Stop supporting distant concentrations of capital that subvert democracy by using their gargantuan profits to buy the machinery of State governance and regulation. For example, stop watching broadcast programming owned by the six global media corporations that control the vast majority of the media/marketing complex.

Stop eroding your health and sending your money to corporate headquarters for distribution to the financial aristocracy—stop frequenting corporate fast-food restaurants and stop buying unhealthy packaged foods from corporate agribusiness.

Close your accounts with Wall Street investment firms and the five “too big to fail” banks that dominate the mortgage, credit and debt markets in the U.S. If you need such an account to transact your business, then maintain low balances so the banks cannot “sweep” your capital for their own use every day.

6. Stop supporting the debt-and-leverage based financial aristocracy. Liquidate all debt as soon as possible, take on no new debt except for short periods of time, explore localized or “crowd-sourced” private-capital loans that exclude the banks and limit the number of financial transactions that enrich the banks and Wall Street.

7. Transfer your assets out of Wall Street and into local enterprises or assets that do not enrich and empower Wall Street.

8. Refuse to participate in consumerist status identifiers and the social defeat they create. Stop admiring and respecting those displaying status signifiers; start thinking of them as pathetic prisoners of a pathological mindset. Stop judging people as “lower value” based on their lack of status signifiers. Free your own mind from the toxic sociopathology of consumerism and social defeat. Stop watching commercial television and minimize your exposure to marketing and consumerist propaganda.

9. Vote in every election with an eye on rewarding honesty and truth and punishing empty promises. Unless the incumbent has renounced corporate contributions, unsustainable debt, financial tyranny and Central State encroachment of civil liberties, then vote against the incumbent, for they are just another lackey of the State-plutocracy partnership. Avoid voting for either the Demopublican or Republicrat branches of the plutocracy; vote for an independent or third party candidate.

Remember that resistance isn’t just about refusing to participate in pathological plutocracy; it’s about establishing a sustainable alternative to the unsustainable State-plutocracy partnership. When people say that voting for a third-party candidate is “wasting your vote,” reply that voting for either of the plutocrat parties is the real waste of a vote because their “leadership” is dooming the nation to destabilization and insolvency. As independents pick up more and more “wasted” votes, they shift from being “marginalized” to becoming powerful voices of honesty and transparency.

10. Stop supporting inflationary policies such as “money creation” by the Federal Reserve and Federal deficit borrowing. Act on your knowledge that inflation is theft and that the Federal Reserve is a private consortium of banks that is the enabler and protector of the parasitic financial aristocracy.

11. Become healthy, active and fit. Refuse to consume unhealthy junk and packaged food, refuse to squander much of your time in sedentary “consumption” of corporate entertainment and digital distraction, and devote your energy and time to mastery, new skills, developing social capital and friendships, projects you “own” and enterprises that benefit your true self-interest. Refuse to follow the marketing/media siren song into chronic ill-health, addiction and social defeat.

12. Embrace self-directed coherent plans and construct a resilient, diverse ecology of identity and meaning. Build a social ecology of positive, active, collaborative, non-pathological people of like minds and spirits. Be powerful via resistance, not powerless via complicity.

It’s easy to confuse faith and political ideology. We resist changing our understanding, as we experience this transition as instability and insecurity. But changing our minds does not require changing our faith; rather, the firmness of our faith—in our Creator, in truth, in prayer, in our ability to help others and prevail—is the bedrock that gives us the discipline and resolve to confront the brutal and unwelcome facts of our circumstances and make coherent plans accordingly.

Flash Editorials April 28, 2012

April 28, 2012

By Russell D. Longcore

Let’s get this puppy started! Oops, gotta be careful. If Obama sees this, he might the idea to get some dogburgers delivered from some oriental restaurant in DC.

The Nation I: Mittens Romney won all four primaries last Tuesday. Big F***ing deal. Remember that you are going to vote for the lesser of two evils in November. And shame on you if you vote at all. If your vote, you are part of the problem, not part of the solution.

The Nation II: In our “Delusional Sociopath” Department, we gladly announce that Newt Gingrich has pulled out of the race. He probably will expect a Cabinet appointment or ambassadorship. I hope Romney makes Newt the Ambassador to BumfuckEgyptistan; or South Sudan, which is in a civil war.

The Nation III: Because the only thing that matters in the Mainstream Media is the Presidential race, let’s talk about who will be Mittens’ VP choice. There is lots of talk about Senator Marco Rubio of Florida. Small problem. Both of Rubio’s parents were born in Cuba. According to the oft-ignored old Constitution, “Natural Born Citizen does not mean just born on American soil. One must also be born of parents who were born on American soil. But why should that stop the Republicans? Sure as hell didn’t stop Barry Soetoro aka Barack Obama.

International I: Spain has made a move toward totalitarianism, and I promise you that the eyes of other nations are on this move. This week, the Madrid government banned cash transactions over $2,500 Euros between anybody, individuals or businesses. This is a blatant destruction of individual rights. They SAY that the move is aimed to combat black market activities. But I’m throwing the bullshit flag on Spain. This is about one thing…making sure that the Spanish government gets all the tax revenue it can collect. But in a wider sense, the order sets the stage for the cashless world system that all the governments would like to see…complete control of every individual. The funniest thing is that in my opinion, this will make the black market more vibrant, not less. The Black Market always figures out a way to avoid and evade the taxman.

International II: In the French primary election, President Nicolas Sarkozy came in second to socialist Francois Hollande. The French people don’t seem to want a national government that only spends what it takes in. They don’t want the austerity measures that are required for the French government to continue. France wants bread and circuses. Soon they will have neither.

International III: In March, Russia and Mexico each bought nearly $1 Billion in gold bullion. Mexico bought 16.8 TONS of gold, valued at $906.4 Million, and Russia bought 16.5 tons. The governments of Russia and Mexico understand very clearly, what is about to happen to the US Dollar. And don’t forget that China is likely the largest gold producer in the world, since they don’t release their mining figures. Speak Mandarin yet?

Business: Mad Cow Disease has been discovered in a cow in California. One dairy cow was found to have bovine spongiform encephalopathy, (BSE), otherwise known as Mad Cow disease. Seem a company was picking up dead cows for rendering, which means they cut up animals, boil the meat off the bones and use nearly every part of the animal for something, including cow feed. Yes friends, cows are fed cow by-products. As a matter of course, this company randomly tests for BSE. And the first test came back negative. Why they tested a second time, I don’t know. But they found the disease in this one cow. If you ever want to know what happens to cattle in the American beef industry just Google the words “cattle cruelty” and watch some of the videos there. You’ll think twice about your next Whopper. In today’s America, only grass-fed, free-range, drug-free organic beef is safe to eat. Remember, the USDA regulates the food industry, and they lie all the time, just like the rest of the Federal Government. If only random testing occurs, you know that other diseased cows are getting through without being discovered. And what doctor or hospital would want to reveal that Mad Cow disease killed someone? The political pressure to hide it to protect the Beef Industry would be enormous.

But here’s tonight’s commercial message. Here are the most important questions I could ask you: Are you living the dream? Do you spend as much time with the people you love as you want to? Are you living in the home of your dreams? Are you living in the spot in the world that you dream of? Do you drive the car of your dreams? Do you have a dream of helping others in some charity that remains unfulfilled? And let’s talk about where we spend a huge chunk of our time…at work. Are you working at the job of your dreams? Are you making the kind of money you always dreamed of earning? Were you able to answer “YES” to any of those questions? Most people I know are not living the dream…whatever that phrase means to THEM. I can’t tell you what YOUR dream is. But if you could not answer “YES”, how are you planning to make your dreams come true? There is a racing analogy that works well here: You must have the right vehicle but you must be the right driver. Think about it. If you have a NASCAR or Formula One car, and you’re the driver, you’ll probably get yourself killed in a race. And if you take the best NASCAR or Formula One driver and put him in a Volkswagen Beetle, he has no chance of winning. To win and make your dreams come true, you must be the right driver in the right vehicle. Here is another important question: How important ARE your dreams to you? Do you have a burning desire to make them come true…or do you just enjoy fantasizing about what it would be like to live the dream? Most of the people I spend time with are in the first category. They are working hard to make their dreams come true. Even if you have the right vehicle and you don’t think you’re the right driver, cheer up!! You can Learn to be a great driver…the driver of your dreams! If you’d like to learn more about making your dreams come true, and whether or not my energy business could be the right vehicle for you, send me an email at russlongcore@gmail.com. We can talk about it possibly design a plan to make your dreams come true!

Economy I: The number of actual new unemployment claims under state programs, unadjusted, totaled 366,743 in the week ending April 21, a decrease of 3,484 from the previous week. Yet, the Labor Department reported 388,000 new jobless claims last week. Folks, think about this. Every week for almost two years, a group of people the size of Oakland, California or Omaha, Nebraska get laid off. For TWO YEARS. That is 100 weeks of Omaha-sized layoffs. Recovery, my ass. Every time you see a news story that even hints at recovery, you should throw the bullshit flag at your TV.

Sports: NBA Player Ron Artest, who changed his name to Metta World Peace, had a bad case of stupid while his Lakers were playing the OKC Thunder last Sunday. Mr. Peace threw an elbow that hit Thunder player James Harden right behind his left ear, sending him to the floor with a concussion. Candyass NBA Commissioner David Stern only suspended Metta for seven games. What a disgrace Stern is. The Peaceman should be fined a month’s salary and suspended for the remainder of the season. That would send a message. But the fans like NBA Thugball, just like they like NHL Hockey. So the thuggery will continue.

Entertainment: Donald Trump’s Miss Universe Pageant has a dude competing this year with all the girls. Canada’s contestant (Canada??) is 23-year-old Jenna Talackova, who may look like a girl, but still has the XY chromosomes the rest of us guys have. It was only four years ago that he had a dick-ectomy. Have you seen this guy? He’s totally hot…no Adam’s apple issues, no five o’clock shadow, no deep voice, great set of hooters. No RuPaul action here. Actually looks a lot like Lisa Kudrow of the old Friends sitcom. Wait a minute! I hear some of you clucking your tongues because I think he’s real pretty. But my wife says that I’m just a lesbian trapped in a man’s body. After all, I like to do the same stuff lesbians do, except I do not need a strap-on. Makes sense to me…

The Principle Of The Gold Standard Part 9

April 13, 2012

Editor Notes:

I discovered a remarkable thinker and author recently. Antal E. Fekete is a Professor at the Memorial University of Newfoundland. He has written outstanding articles and does compelling lectures about money. This is a ten-part series on the gold standard. Ladies and Gentlemen, the first thing that a state must do at secession is invent a monetary system…that is the Power of the Purse. Creating gold money is a lot easier than you think.
