You Should Be Buying Silver NOW!

December 27, 2015

(Editor’s Note: I learned a lot by watching this video. Haven’t I been recommending that you buy silver? This is one of those life-changing, paradigm-destroying opportunities. Don’t miss this. Watch this video and be prepared to change how you live. By the way, I don’t do any business with Kitco, They aren’t paying me. I’m just throwing them some love for sharing this video.

Remember this: In a properly structured nation with money backed by precious metals, there is no central bank or government to control the money. The money controls the government. There is presently no nation on earth that functions with a gold/silver standard. And the only way that liberty will live again anywhere on this planet is when a group of people band together and secede. But the first thing that has to happen is not secession. It’s getting the money right. Nothing else matters.)

How To Hold Gold & Silver In Your IRA

January 17, 2015

If you have your investments in paper financial instruments, such as:
bank accounts
Certificates of Deposit (CDs)
mutual funds

You are entirely at the mercy of a bunch of other people who manage your money. All you have are documents that show you have some sort of ownership of those funds.

My personal recommendation is to LIQUIDATE ALL PAPER investments NOW, take your early withdrawal penalties, and place the remaining funds into gold and silver that you OWN and HOLD in your possession.

I also know that most of you will NOT do this. You may think that’s a crazy idea. But likely, if you watched ANY of the Michael Maloney videos today, you realize that the Death of the Dollar is imminent. And if you wait until the dollar collapses…or if you wait until AFTER a MAJOR stock market crash to liquidate…you may end up with nothing. Something is always better than nothing.

But this video shows you an alternative…how to hold gold and silver in your IRA.

Here is the video.

Taxation in FRONA

The first thing you must do when considering taxation in The Free Republic of North America (FRONA) is throw out everything you ever thought you knew about taxation. But even before that, you must throw out everything you ever thought you knew about money.

The money of The Free Republic of North America is the Frona. There will be the gold Frona, the silver Frona and the copper Frona. Gold Fronas will likely be used for larger transactions. Silver and copper Fronas will be used as the day-to-day coinage of the nation. Pure gold and silver coinage from other nations would also be acceptable forms of money since they are denominated in fineness and weight. So for example, America Eagles, Austrian Philharmonics, South African Krugerrands, Australian Kookaburras, and Canadian Maple Leafs would all be seen regularly in FRONA transactions.

FRONA money is silver, gold and copper. It is not BACKED by precious metals. That defines a “Currency.” Currency is NOT MONEY. Precious metals ARE money when they are minted as money. But precious metals NOT minted as money can be used as money. If I have a one ounce gold chain of 18K fineness, any merchant could accept that as payment in a commercial transaction because the weight and fineness are known. If I have a one pound gold bar of .999% fineness, it spends just like 16 one ounce coins. Get it?

The next thing that you must do is to stop thinking of gold and silver coins in terms of their value against other currencies, such as the Dollar. Coinage is a function of weight, not price. Yes, there would have to be some exchange rate to convert other currencies to Fronas. But the free market would determine this floating exchange rate, not the FRONA government. US Dollars or Euros might not have a Frona exchange rate at any price after TSHTF. But I’ll bet that the Chinese Renminbi or the Brazilian Real will be just fine. The FRONA national Charter, in its clause about money, would require any minted coin to display its purity and weight, but no value. For those international coins that displayed a value, such as “One Dollar” or Twenty Dollars,” those words would have no meaning in FRONA. And the law would proscribe the penalty of death for anyone minting fraudulent coins or altering coins (clipping or shaving).

In FRONA, goods and services will be priced in WEIGHT, not dollars and cents. A pound of steak might be priced at 0.25 ounce of silver. A gallon of gasoline might be priced at 0.10 ounce of silver. And copper Fronas are there to facilitate the smallest physical transaction, down to the penny. But when using a debit card for transactions, amounts could be priced down to the hundredth or thousandth of an ounce.

There will be no national money and no national currency. This prevents FRONA from debasing the money and stealing from the citizens. The free market will decide what the medium of exchange is. Common sense suggests that gold, silver and copper coins will become money, and likely silver and copper coinage will be the most widely accepted medium of exchange for day-to-day transactions. (Actually, in the technological age in which we live, the digital transaction will likely be the most utilized medium of exchange. Most people will do daily business with debit cards.) The FRONA constitution will prohibit itself from enacting legal tender laws. If the FRONA Treasury wants to issue gold and silver coins it may do so, but enjoys no monopoly or control. It would have to compete in the free market like all other minting operations.

In FRONA, The Treasury Department collects funds in silver, gold and copper, not any other currency from any other nation of the world.

As an aside: The US Federal government has come up with poverty statistics over the years. And in 2012, DC considers you “in poverty” if your family of four earns $23,050 or less per year. Of course, you can own a house, a car, a refrigerator, a washer/dryer set, multiple TVs, multiple cell phones and a nice wardrobe. (Compare that to the per capita income in India of $1,219.00. Is there really poverty in America?) But in FRONA, all of that poverty statistical bullshit is swept away. The US Department of Agriculture determined that a family of three or more persons spent one-third of their after-tax income on food. But in FRONA, there is no Income tax, Social Security or Medicare deductions from a wage earner’s paycheck. So instantly, every FRONA wage earner gets a boost in take-home pay to 100%. And remember…the wage earner is getting paid in weight, not dollars.

* * * * * * * * *

As long as I am fantasizing about The Free Republic of North America, I want FRONA to be the identical boundaries of the State of Texas. After all, Texas is the US state with the most advanced secessionist movement, the Texas Nationalist Movement. And Texas is the state with the best chance of actually seceding and making nationhood work.

I pulled some demographic statistics from various sources for this article.

From the US Census:

-Median household income in TX 2010 – $50,049
-Households: 8.540 million, persons/hshld 2.78
-Per capita income 2010 TX $39,493 (rounding up to $39,500)
-TX population 2011 25,674,681

From the Bureau of Labor Statistics:
-TX Civilian Labor Force 9-12 12,632,000
-Unemployment rate: 6.8%

From Texas state website:
-TX state budget 2012 $80.6 Billion

So based upon those stats, I have made some rudimentary calculations. Remember that these are in Dollars, not ounces of money:

I am going out on a limb here and attributing the FRONA national saving rate at 10%. That means that everybody living in FRONA saves 10% of their income. Easy to do when you get paid 100% of what you earn.

-Per capita income $39,500 x 25.6M people = $101,120,000,000 ($101.12B)
-Per capita income $101.12 Billion x 10% = $10.112 B going into savings

Let’s say that 90% of per capita income was available to be spent. That is $35,550. Let’s say that on average, people do 75% of their transactions with merchants, which could generate a 10% sales tax. That is $26,663 x 10% = $2,666 per year in total taxation. $2,666 x 25.6m people = $68.250B.

This calculation does not include any tax revenue from transactions made by FRONA businesses. That could easily double the amount of sales tax revenue flowing into the national Treasury. These calculations also do not include tax revenue from non-citizens making purchases while in FRONA. More money for the Treasury. I can easily envision sales tax revenues in FRONA of $120-$150 Billion in FRONA’s first year in existence.

And the budget for the State of Texas for 2012 was about $80 Billion.

FRONA has only one source of revenue…a national sales tax of 10%. No property tax, excise tax, duties, tariffs, ad valorem tax, estate tax, corporate tax, income tax…NOTHING but the sales tax. In FRONA, the national sales tax pays for ALL government, even funding the governance needed down to the county and city level. There is NO OTHER SOURCE OF TAX REVENUE…PERIOD.

What happens to any surplus? Under the Charter I have written for FRONA, the government would declare a dividend and pay it back to the citizen/shareholders. Try to wrap your mind around THAT.

Now THAT’S the way a nation should work!

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

Two Choices: Own A Business Or Be A Wage Slave

By Russell D. Longcore

I think there are a couple of conclusions we can glean from the national elections just concluded. First is that a billion dollars got spent on campaigns and nothing changed. Mr. Obama is still in the White House. The Democrats still control the Senate. The Republicans still control the House of Representatives.

Second…the business community still controls them all.

Wage-earners have almost no deductions available to them. And in the next four years, the Obama Administration and Congress are coming for many of your deductions in a desperate attempt to steal more revenue from ALL Americans.

For most people, there is no expense in their working lifetimes greater than the amount of various taxes they pay. So, tax planning and tax preparation can have the greatest effect on your income. Just a few hours of effective tax planning can put tens of thousands of dollars back into your bank accounts. Over a lifetime, that could translate into hundreds of thousands…even millions. It could also mean the difference between the constant struggle of monthly income shortages versus living a lifestyle you enjoy.

Government is supposed to protect individual liberty and property rights. Today’s government does little or none of either. Washington DC is a massive spoils system. The best benefits go to those who have the best lobbyists and lawyers.

Taxation was supposed to be a means whereby revenue was collected to pay for the activities of the government. But over time, the tax code became a system of rewards and penalties, and ways for businesses to cock-block their competition.

The IRS code is a hopelessly broken tax system that, over the centuries, was written by business for business. The IRS code favors businesses. There are hundreds of tax breaks, tax credits, tax deductions, tax deferments, tax incentives, etc…designed specifically for business. And I don’t mean just mega-corporations.

Even the smallest part-time, home-based business enjoys tax benefits that the employee wager-earner will never get. Here is a list of only a few benefits a home-based business enjoys:

• Deduct a portion of your property taxes.
• Deduct a portion of your mortgage payment.
• Deduct a portion of your mortgage interest.
• Deduct a portion of your utilities.
• Deduct a portion of business lunches.
• Deduct mileage on your car incurred in business.
• Deduct a portion of your car payment.
• Deduct a portion of your car maintenance expenses.
• Deduct promotional expenses for your business.
• Deduct all or part of your phone bills.
• Deduct insurance premiums for auto, home, health, life, business.
• Deduct travel expenses for business purposes.
• Deduct business gifts.
• Your clothing might be deductible.
• Deduct expenses for equipment like computers, software, supplies etc.
• Deduct expenses for ongoing training.
• Deduct expenses for tax preparation.
• Deduct expenses for legal representation.
• Deduct office furniture.
• Vehicles are deductible in certain instances, and you can depreciate them.
• Deduct depreciation on all the rest of your business equipment.
• Set up a personal retirement plan and put away much more than an IRA allows.
• Hire your kids and shield income from taxation and Social Security payments.
• Deduct rent or lease payments for equipment and/or real property.

That is only a partial list, friends. And the IRS code does not say you have to make a profit. You can even deduct your losses in some cases.

So…what should you do? Should you fall into the resentment fomented by the Mainstream Media of the 97% against the 3%? That keeps you broke and it will not change the system. It certainly won’t change your financial outcomes.

The old saying still goes…“If you can’t beat ‘em, JOIN ‘EM!”

Many people dream of firing their boss and starting a business. But if you have not ever owned a business before, there is a steep learning curve. That is why some folks choose a franchise because training is included. Remember…you had to get trained when you started your job, didn’t you? You must get training to become a business owner. Few of the characteristics that make a good employee translate to being a good business owner. That is why starting a business from the comfort of your home on a part-time basis makes the most sense. This gives you time to learn and grow and make the transition from follower to leader. Still, the business that you choose can make you or BREAK you.

Only one out of five small businesses that make it to their fifth anniversary are still in business. That means that 80% of new businesses FAIL in the first five years. That failure means losing money, investments vanishing, financial pressure, stress and the shame you feel from a failure in business. And if you choose the wrong kind of business, you could lose your business through no fault of your own if your marketplace dries up or the economy slows down.

So the business you choose for your home-based business is a crucial decision for your future and the future of your family. If your new business is successful, you can change your destiny and your family’s destiny for the better. Better schools for the kids, college educations, nicer homes, nicer cars, better vacations, more charitable giving. Choose unwisely and fail in business, and you will still change your destiny. Only it won’t be for the better.

The three most important things for your business are:

1. Choose a highly consumable, life-essential product or service. First let’s talk about the “highly consumable” part. Would you rather sell a product that people use every day, or a product that they seldom have to buy? Think about the difference between a business that sells electricity and a business that sells cars or caskets. Now what about the “life-essential” part? Think about the difference between selling mobile phone service versus selling bowling balls and accessories. You cannot go a day without your phone, but you could go a lifetime without bowling.
2. Have a large, growing, inelastic market demand. A large market demand needs no explanation. But you also need a growing market. Selling pagers 20 years ago was hot. But try even finding pagers today. Don’t put your business on the tail end of a trend. And what about that word “inelastic?” It means you want your business to be steady, and not affected by boom and bust cycles. Ask homebuilders or realtors about what happens to their incomes when a boom ends.
3. Duplicatable. If you have a home-based business that relies upon your efforts, then any vacation you take, or illness you have, costs you money. You can hire people in your business, but having employees brings its own set of problems. Think about what happens to a real estate broker. He hires new people, trains them, helps them be successful. But after a while, his new people want to be brokers, just like he is. When they do become brokers, they become his competition THAT HE TRAINED. The best solution is to have associates that work with you that have the same business opportunity that you have. Then when they are successful, you still make money. This is commonly referred to as “Network Marketing.”

Those three characteristics in a home-based business are really hard to find. But they do exist!

There are two videos directly below that I offer to you. The first video talks about my Energy business. The second video talks about my other product in Social Commerce. Please look at both of them.

Then ask yourself… “Who Wouldn’t Want a Home Based Business Like This?”

Social Commerce Video

Choose one, or choose both. Then come join us!

In closing, remember this:

Your are either working for your own dreams or you are working for someone else’s dream.

The Nation I: This week, Warren Buffet and Berkshire Hathaway are hosting their annual meeting in Omaha. Thousands will attend. You gotta give the old boy his snaps. He has become one of the world’s wealthiest men in the stock market and owning companies. But a big part of his amassed wealth came from doing business with the Federal Government. So is it any wonder that in his doting years, he says stupid things like “the wealthy should pay more income taxes?” His “Buffet Rule” legislation went down in flames last week in Congress. But think about this. No one is preventing any wealthy individual from writing an extra check to the US Treasury. So this is not about the wealthy paying more voluntarily. This is all about being forced to pay more at the threat of death or imprisonment. This is all so extraordinarily disingenuous. The Congress carries the water for business. The tax code for business owners is laden with tax benefits and tax credits that employees don’t get. Employees don’t have their capital at risk, and they don’t deserve business tax breaks. But we all deserve less taxation. So instead of stealing more from the wealthy, let’s see someone slash EVERYBODY’S tax rates. Even better would be a ten percent national sales tax and no income tax.

The Nation II: President Obama made a surprise trip to Afghanistan this week to keep the fictional account of the murder of Osama bin Laden alive, now one year old. This was a campaign speech wrapped in an even bigger lie. Obama didn’t cap Osama. Bin Laden died of kidney failure back in 2002. Too bad presidential lies are not felonies.

International I: In the wake of the nuclear meltdown in Japan, the Japanese government has closed all of its nuclear plants for the first time in 40 years. Now they expect brownouts and rolling blackouts. Out of the frying pan into the fire. Hey Japan!!! Ever heard of the Molten Salt Reactor, using thorium as fuel? Totally safe, no radioactive waste, 60-year-old technology? China has…

Business: At a Sotheby’s auction Wednesday, one of the original four versions of Edvard Munch’s painting The Scream (you know, white face, mouth gaping open, eyes wide…kind of looks like that mask from the horror films) sold for $119,922,500…a new record. The winning bidder had way more money than common sense.

In 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 We can talk about it possibly designing a plan to make your dreams come true!

Economy I: The advance number of actual initial claims under state programs, unadjusted, totaled 330,475 in the week ending April 28, a decrease of 40,158 from the previous week. Yet, the Labor Department reported 365,000 new jobless claims last week. And here is a new piece of information I have never seen before, Today, the St. Louis Federal Reserve released a Bureau of Labor Statistics chart and report about Americans in the category “Not In The Labor Force.” Their report showed 88,419,000 Americans that have functionally dropped out of the labor force altogether. The chart only records up to 88 million people. Now…do you wonder how the government-released unemployment rate can be between 8-9% when 88 million adults are not employed in America? Folks, there are only about 315 million living people in America, and 25% of them are below age 18. Do the math. That means the REAL unemployment rate is about 25%. This statistic makes the Great Depression of the 1930 look pale by comparison.
Here is the chart.

Sports: Former NFL All-pro linebacker Junior Seau died of a self-inflicted gunshot wound this week. Seau is the eighth player from the 1994 Chargers championship team to die. We will all learn more about Seau’s life as the story unfolds, but there is something real bad about the head trauma that is happening in the league all the time. A lot of old players are ending up with dementia and other ailments from old football injuries. But this is the most violent sport in America. There weren’t too many Roman Gladiators that enjoyed a soft retirement either.

Entertainment: The movie The Avengers opens this weekend, and many are predicting that it will have the biggest box office first weekend in history, even bigger than the biggest Harry Potter opening weekend. Go see Nick Fury and his team of The Hulk, Ironman, Captain America, Thor, Black Widow and Hawkeye whip some bad guy butt. Written and directed by Joss Whedon of Buffy the Vampire Slayer and Firefly.At a theatre near you!

China’s Secret Plan Revealed!

March 19, 2012

by Russell D. Longcore

Porter Stansberry of Stansberry Research has produced a video entitled “China’s Secret Plan to Bankrupt Millions of Americans?” This video runs about 1 hour 20 minutes. I almost never offer links like this here at DumpDC. But I have watched this in its entirety and Stansberry is exactly on target.

This is information you will likely NEVER see in the mainstream media. And what China is doing right now will impact YOUR LIFE if you live more than three more years on this earth. Even if you choose not to watch this video, your life will be changed by China’s strategy. So, why would you choose to remain ignorant of what is going on? Why would you not want to prepare yourself and your family for the future?

Watch this video. The information is free. Preparing for the future won’t be.

The Nation: Mitt Romney got his ass handed to him in two caucuses and one primary this week. I realize that no delegates were in play, but what does it say about Romney when he gets beat by Rick Santorum, a wannabe conservative lightweight? Even Ron Paul beat Mitt in Minnesota. Tells me that voters would still like to see someone other than Romney as the candidate. But I still think he’ll win eventually.

The Nation II The Obama Administration has given the Catholic Church the Judas kiss. Catholic bishops signed off with their support of Obamacare a couple years back. Now, the Department of Health and Human Services issued regulations that require all non-church religious institutions (schools, hospitals, etc.) to provide employee health insurance that covers contraception, sterilization and drugs like the “morning after” abortifacient pill. Last time I checked, Catholics teach that using contraception is sin. The tyranny is breath-taking, and is a direct assault on the First Amendment. But the old Constitution has no authority to control the Federal government, so why should anyone be surprised that the Feds ignore it blatantly? The Feds know that America will not rise up, but will bitch a little and then comply.

The Nation III Congress passed The FAA Reauthorization Act which orders the Federal Aviation Administration to develop regulations for the testing and licensing of commercial drones by 2015. Barack Obama is expected to sign the bill. That means privacy and surveillance issues galore. That also means that the heavily armed Predator drones could be flying in American airspace soon. The FAA projects as many as 30,000 drones could be watching America overhead by 2020. America is there no level of tyranny to which you will refuse to stoop?

International: The brain-damaged bullies in the Obama Administration don’t seem to be able to leave anyone alone. It’s not enough to breathe out threats to Iran. Oh, no. Washington has to stick its nose into the Syrian civil war. Now the Barry Bunch are trying to slap penalties and sanctions on the Syrian government in an effort to overthrow the Assad regime. Fortunately, when the Obama Oddfellows tried to push this through the Security Council of the United Nations, China and Russia vetoed it. Perhaps Bashar al-Assad should step down, but it’s none of DC’s business.

Business: One of the reasons folks tune into the Super Bowl is for the clever advertisements. I remember an ad from years back that showed cowboys trying to herd cats. I have no idea what they were trying to sell, so I’m guessing that ad wasn’t very effective. This year’s crop of ads were lackluster at best. I didn’t laugh out loud at one of them. But a 30-second spot cost an advertiser $3.5 million this year. Is it worth it? When your ad reaches over 100 million people at once, it might be. Plus, if your ad is great, you’ll get people around the water cooler repeating your ad for days thereafter. But what counts is whether or not sales increase because of the Super Bowl ad. Who knows?

Shameless Plug: If you have a business, a product or a website, you’re always looking for ways to promote and make new sales. One of the best ways to promote your business for free is to write articles about your products or services. Anybody can write a short article, perhaps 350-400 words. Think about it. You are likely an expert on something. Then go to Super Article Directory and we will publish it! Join over 61,000 other authors who post articles at our Directory. And the best thing is that publishing articles at Super Article Directory is FREE!! Publish your articles with us and watch your traffic increase! Check it out at

Sports: Giants, baby! The best story to come out of the Super Bowl is about Tom Brady’s wife Gisele getting caught telling the truth about Tom’s teammates. She was recorded saying (with expletives): “My husband can’t throw the ball and catch the ball at the same time”…or words to that effect. At least we know that this supermodel was watching the game. Tom’s teammates dropped passes that were right in their hands in the last drive of the game. Gisele said the same thing that most every Patriots fan said, whether at the game or watching somewhere else. So, why is she catching a ration of shyt for it?

Entertainment: Super Bowl’s halftime show provided no entertainment whatsoever. Madonna lip-synced her way through her odd dance routines, and then it was thankfully over. One of her supporting cast members, a no-talent called”MIA,” flipped the world the bird while on camera. It was a cynical and brilliant move to gain attention. The NFL leadership should be ashamed that they insulted their audience with this crap. For Christ’s sake, it’s only a 12-minute gig. Can’t they find a decent act to perform 2-3 songs and behave themselves? Between Janet Jackson and Madonna, you guys in the NFL office suck at choosing talent.
