WHO’S DRAWING FIRST BLOOD IN THE CIVIL WAR OF 2018?

Will the Liberals or the Conservatives Start a Civil Unrest?

“…mainstream right is a bit different. It’s not as well organized, for a start. The vast majority of right-of-center Americans aren’t actually very interested in politics, because they’re focused on work and family. When right-wingers do get annoyed about a political issue they’re less likely to do anything about it, for the same reason – they’re busy getting on with their lives. On the other hand, if they do get pushed hard enough that they decide to take action, they’re a lot more capable of creating some serious unrest. A lot of that is down to the simple fact that the right has more guns than the left, and tend to know how to use them.”

Editor’s Note: This article is written by Giurgi C. and does not necessarily reflect this website’s options and beliefs, but it portrays some scenarios that are likely to happen.

Prepping is a safeguard against a whole range of possible scenarios, and everyone has their own opinions about what’s most likely to happen and what would be the biggest threat. There’s one thing pretty much everyone can agree on, though, and that’s that widespread civil unrest is going to bring on a social collapse, at least in the affected areas and maybe right across the country.

Who’s likely to cause this civil unrest, though? Does anyone have the ability to throw large parts of the USA into chaos? We’ve all seen often enough how local issues can spark unrest in a neighborhood or even a small city, but could the same happen on the scale of a county, a state, the whole Midwest or Atlantic seaboard?

Yes it could, and the most likely way it’s going to happen is that some incident upsets politically active people – not just in the town where it happens, but across the state or the country – so much they decide enough is enough, and try to bring about a radical change. That’s happened hundreds of times throughout history, in all sorts of countries – and while the USA is unique in many ways, it’s not unique enough to be immune from the threat of mass civil unrest.

Experts don’t argue about whether unrest could happen in the USA. It could; that’s a done deal. What they do argue about is where it’s most likely to come from. Any part of the political spectrum can be pushed into rebellion but for that to happen to the majority who’re pretty much in the center, things really have to be bad. More usually, when unrest happens it comes from either the right or left. It doesn’t always come from people who could be labeled as extremists either – often it’s people who’re identifiable to one side of center, but not particularly hard line.

Left or Right: Who Wants to Fight?

Listen to anyone on the left and they’ll tell you that the biggest threat of civil unrest comes from heavily armed groups on the “far right” or “alt-right”. On the other hand, speak to anyone on the right and they will say that the real danger is the organized and violent flash mobs of Antifa and other “far-left” groups. Are they both correct, or is one – even both – wrong?

There’s no doubt that left and right both have extremes who’re more than willing to use violence. There aren’t a lot of them on either side though, so it’s unlikely they could directly cause widespread civil unrest. What they might be able to do is cause enough trouble to provoke a backlash from the mainstream on the other side, and that really could become civil unrest.

Thanks to the media it’s right-wing extremists who get the most attention, but in fact, their numbers are very small. There are neo-Nazi and white supremacist groups in the USA, but most of them are tiny and too disorganized to cause any serious trouble. There have been lone wolf terrorists on the American far right, with Timothy McVeigh being the most notorious. They’re sometimes capable of committing serious atrocities, but mass civil unrest is beyond them.

Left-wing extremists are more numerous, unfortunately. The largest extreme left group in the USA right now is Antifa – but, with an estimated 15,000 hardcore members, even Antifa isn’t big enough to create civil unrest at a national level. Law enforcement could put down an Antifa uprising inside a couple of days. The far left might not like that, but it’s still a fact.

The mainstream menace?

But what about the mainstream left – the tens of millions of Americans who see themselves as on the left of the spectrum, but reject extremist positions like Marxism? Could they reduce the country to chaos? Yes, they could.

Mainstream leftists don’t have the enthusiasm for violence that groups like Antifa are notorious for, but they do have an endless appetite for getting involved in causes. Any perceived “injustice”, from border control to employment policies, is likely to attract a horde of protesting lefties. Usually, nothing much happens beyond legitimate political protest, but sometimes things can get out of control.

If there’s a large protest movement, and its members feel they’re not being taken seriously, tempers can rise. If the people who’re getting angry are well enough organized this is where civil unrest can break out – and the problem is that large parts of the left are very well organized. This end of the political spectrum is closely linked to labor unions and a large, interlocking network of pressure groups; they’re very good at spreading messages, exploiting social media and getting people mobilized.

Many on the left also don’t have a lot of respect for the society we live in. They would like to see it “reformed” into something that fits their ideas better, and this attitude makes it easy for them to justify breaking the law. That’s why left-wing protests are prone to violence and looting; if everything you see around you is a symbol of oppression and inequality, it’s tempting to lash out.

The mainstream right is a bit different. It’s nothing like as well organized, for a start. The vast majority of right-of-center Americans aren’t actually very interested in politics, because they’re focused on work and family. When right-wingers do get annoyed about a political issue they’re less likely to do anything about it, for the same reason – they’re busy getting on with their lives.

On the other hand, if the right does get pushed hard enough that they decide to take action, they’re a lot more capable of creating some serious unrest. A lot of that is down to the simple fact that the right has more guns than the left, and tend to know how to use them. Any large, heavily armed, combat-effective insurgency in the USA would pretty much have to come from the right; the left just doesn’t have many people with those sort of skills.

Where’s the danger?

Both liberals and conservatives have the potential to create mass civil unrest if they decide they want to. That shouldn’t be a surprise; people are people, whatever they believe, and while some belief systems seem to encourage violence in their followers any of us can be pushed to rebellion by the right factors.

If conservatives rose up that would be more disruptive, and more dangerous to the government. Firstly, conservatives are more heavily armed; secondly, they have an inbuilt respect for law and order, so for them to start overthrowing society they have to be very angry.

Realistically, though, the political left is the main threat when it comes to civil unrest. They’re organized, they get upset easily and there are a lot of them. Most unrest in western countries is caused by leftist groups, and the USA Is just as vulnerable as anywhere else. Our citizens might be better armed to protect themselves, but mass action by the left could still tear society apart in a hurry. If that happens, all the systems we rely on in everyday life will soon fall apart across the whole area affected by the disorder – and, unless you’re prepared for that, you’re in for a pretty hard time.

Every American has been surveilled for years! What the Patriot Act did was remove the restrictions and requirement that another nation had to do it. PRIOR TO THE Patriot Act Australia was the primary place American surveillance was centered. Since the Patriot Act, it is conducted entirely by the NSA/CIA and all the records have been stored at a giant facility in Utah! They are now building another storage facility in Maryland!

Al Battista Many thanks for this awakened man: Edward A.Gawrys Jr

“After 8 years with the Kenyan in the Oval Office and after ineffectual presidents from after Ronald Reagan to present we were steamrolling our way to being a Sh$thole country. God indeed stepped in To Stop the carnage. Then Conservatives while patting their fat satisfied little egos sat back and watched an election get stolen in Alabama. In my opinion, we were not and are not pissed off enough yet to continue this fight. Some of us right now are giving their all. Some are giving some. Some are giving not much at all. Now is not the time to continue celebrating. Now is not the time for complacency. Now is the time to fight on at all cost. Like Benjamin Franklin said. “We have given the people a republic. If we can keep it”. “ Well, I say we can! What say you, my friends????? He also said “ if we don’t hang together we will surely hang separately “”

A Veterans Letter to McCain: TRUMP IS RIGHT

Trump is right!  “… McCain was “extremely disrespectful to the thousands upon thousands of people, many of whom happen to be his constituents, that came to listen to me speak about illegal immigration in Phoenix last week by calling them ‘crazies.’”
“Crazies” was, in fact, a term McCain used in response to Trump’s Phoenix rally, during which the Republican presidential contender invited a man whose son was killed by an undocumented immigrant to join him on stage, doubling down on the crusade against illegal immigration…”

Thumbnail

Dear Naomi, 
Please tell the senator that I would wish he not run for office ever again. Please give him a copy of this letter-it is meant for him, even though you are the only one I know that can reach him.
I will not vote for him, and many of my veteran buddies will no longer do so either. There are many reasons for this, but the biggest is that he has incompetent advisers. If that is not the case, as he gets older he is developing some problems with his thinking ability!
As a fellow Vietnam veteran with a Purple Heart and a Bronze Star I do respect his military service. However, I might be crazy, but the millions of other people backing  Ted Cruz, Donald Trump and Ben Carson are not. 
I’m sick of all of the politicians-among the crop of politicians only Cruz (and a few others) have the balls to stand up for America and the American Citizen.  Both Carson and Trump are real people that have had to have real life experiences with all of the struggles the politicians stick us with.
Trump is 100% correct when he says, “ McCain was “extremely disrespectful to the thousands upon thousands of people, many of whom happen to be his constituents, that came to listen to me speak about illegal immigration in Phoenix last week by calling them ‘crazies.’”
I realize Mr and Mrs McCain and their family do not have to shop were we regular people do, but when Arizona passed laws that reinforced the federal laws to protect all the citizens of all ethnic backgrounds from the illegal alien, our shops once again became normal with relative clean rest rooms, and the display shelves neat and not strewn into disarray.  After Obama and Holder took our states rights away by letting the illegal alien resume his infiltration of our state, everything sucks again!
I challenge the senator and his wife to come to our Ross’s in Prescott and find it neat after the hordes of illegals come through.
I realize much of south of the border do not have flush toilets, but why won’t the smugglers (or the respective embassies) tell their charges about flushing a toilet. Most adult American citizens whether black, hispanic or white flush!  Why can’t the illegal?
I’m not sure I can blame the illegals from Mexico.  After many trips to Encinitas, Plaza Santa Maria and Tijuana (as well as Mexico City and Ixtapan), the people were always pleasant, and all of the places I frequented were like  places in the USA, having flush toilets!?!  So either Trump was correct again, when he said Mexico sends its worst, or else these illegals causing the problem are from other parts of the world?
I don’t want to bring up the murders, the drunken “illegal” drivers, the “illegal” wrong-way drivers and the rapes and child molestations by “illegals” Neither do I want to bring up the 650,000 crimes committed in Texas, alone, by “illegals.”  Just know the senator’s claim that Americans are crazy for agreeing with Trump, shows he is the most out of touch person for not knowing what is going on in his realm of responsibility, the state of Arizona!
One final thought: We the people are not blind  We see the charade you establishment rupugnants are pulling.  Ted Cruz needs to run the senate! Obviously, Obama has some dirt on McConnell because Obama gets everything he wants from him and Boner or Bohner or however he spells his weak-kneed name.  I can’t believe his father ran a bar.  He is such a pussy!
You political shysters can come after me if you want.  I have nothing, so I have nothing to lose!  Also, if you do come after me there is about 20 or 30 million more of me that are sick and tired of watching this willing destruction of our once great nation!  Either open your eyes and do what we elected you to do, or get out of the way so someone with brains and balls can start to fix this mess most in the senate and house OF BOTH PARTIES created!
I thank God for the Ben Carson’s, Don Trump’s, Ted Cruz’s and the handful of others that are trying to save our country while the demonrats and repugnants are selling out our beloved America!  In the name of my Lord and Savior Jesus Christ!
Sincerely,
Al Battista
PS
Yes! I’m mad.  My Italian relatives have been fighting for the USA since WW I, All of my uncles paid a price in WW II. My greatest uncle fought with Patton during WW II, then paid the ultimate price in Korea.  My blood was minimal in Vietnam, mostly because, as Trump said, “it was a stupid war!” That war was won 4 times by the American troops and their Vietnamese allies.  Stupid politicians threw those 4 victories away just like Obama threw our Iraq victory away!  Do you understand why we no longer want stupid politicians running things.  That is why we need Ben Carson and Don Trump!  WE WILL TAKE ANYBODY, WITH LIFE EXPERIENCE, THAT IS NOT A SLICK, SMOOTH TALKING POLITICIAN!

… a new Mideast conspiracy theory


Former secretary of state Hillary Clinton attends a recent signing event for her memoir “Hard Choices” in Saratoga Springs, N.Y. (Mike Groll/Associated Press)

For the past few weeks, a number of Arabic-language social media users have been sharing screenshots and excerpts of a Hillary Clinton autobiography called “Password 360.” Many are shocked by one particular passage, in which the former secretary of state appears to concede that the United States, with the help of the Muslim Brotherhood, helped engineer the Islamic State extremist group.

That would be a startling admission — if it were true. Clinton’s new memoir contains no such passage. In fact, it isn’t even called “Password 360” — it’s called “Hard Choices.” Direct U.S. involvement in the rise of the Islamic State is a conspiracy theory at best.

Unfortunately, it’s a powerful one. The BBC’s Suzanne Kianpour reports that the idea appears to hold sway in Lebanon. According to Kianpour, the Lebanese Foreign Ministry summoned U.S. Ambassador David Hale to explain the rumor, and the U.S. Embassy in Beirut wrote on Facebook that any stories of American involvement in the creation of the Islamic State were “pure fabrication.”

The rumors have been around for quite some time, too: On Aug. 3, the online magazine 7iber published an article debunking the story, which it noted had been picked up by at least one major Jordanian media outlet. Lina Ejeilat, editor in chief of 7iber, says the story appears to have begun on obscure Egyptian Web sites before being picked up on more mainstream news sites and spreading through the Arab world. Although it initially talked specifically about the creation of an “Islamic state” in Egypt’s Sinai region, it appears to have evolved to also include the supposed U.S. creation of the Islamic State militia currently creating havoc in Syria and Iraq.

Ejeilat says the spread of the rumor on social media was remarkable. “Many people just wanted to believe it,” she explains in an e-mail. However, Ejeilat also notes that many others have recognized the theory as absurd and clearly fake: Twitter users have been using a satirical hashtag (“#مذكرات_هيلاري_كلينتون” or “Hillary Clinton’s Memoirs”) to mock the fake excerpts by making up their own, even sillier excerpts.

The rumors about the Islamic State and Clinton are a new variation on an old theme: that the United States supports the interests of the Muslim Brotherhood in the Middle East. That theory has unified supporters of Egypt’s post-coup government, Shiite Muslims suspicious of the reach of Sunni groups such as the Brotherhood, and even America’s right wing. Clinton has been singled out in these theories for some time. In 2012, for example, Rep. Michele Bachmann suggested that a close Clinton aide, Huma Abedin, had infiltrated the U.S. government for the Muslim Brotherhood. Bachmann’s comments led to a scathing editorial from The Post. When Clinton visited Cairo not long after, she was greeted by placards that said things such as “Clinton is the supreme guide of the Muslim Brotherhood.”

The Middle East is home to its fair share of conspiracy theories. To some degree, it is understandable, of course. There are plenty of historical examples of the West involved in secret dealings in the Middle East with disastrous results, and it is certainly true that the United States has a long, complicated history with the Muslim Brotherhood. Besides, the sudden, terrible rise of the Islamic State is difficult to comprehend for anyone, anywhere.

The reality of Clinton’s view on the U.S. role in the rise of the Islamic State is less conspiratorial but still damning. In an interview with the Atlantic, Clinton criticized President Obama for not arming Syrian rebels in the early days of the rebellion against Bashar al-Assad’s regime. She said this decision “left a big vacuum, which the jihadists have now filled.” Clinton herself acknowledged that she can never know whether arming the rebels would really have made a difference, and some, such as the Monkey Cage’s Marc Lynch, have argued that she is wrong. Perhaps it is a better representation of recent U.S. policy toward the Middle East: hard choices, and plenty of regrets.

A photo of G W Bush started this dialogue. Add your thoughts:

Keith Koblitz like him, hate him he was what you saw. Look at how he has conducted himself since leaving the whitehouse, now compare him to others like Clinton and Carter…..

Tony Smith LOL. Whoever created this meme knows nothing about the English language, because this is a qualified admission from Bush, who also knows noting about the English language, that he sold his soul.

I agree with GW: He didn’t sell his soul for popularity. He sold it for money and power.

Tamara Blessing No, he sold his soul to the devil so he could be part of the Skull and Bones like all of his family. They also did business with the Nazis in Argentina, etc, etc. Shinning example of morality!

Al Battista Sure, W Bush (and his dad) made some bad mistakes, but the entire USA made a terrible mistake when they let that communist-muslim into the White House.

Al Battista If the USA lets HillBilly (ya, you get 2 for 1, remember) in, then it’s over for us. Bush’s might be Skull and Bones, but HillBilly are a couple of perverts that practice gangsterism, witchcraft and the Hustle! How come so many people are so deceived they can’t see through these crooks?

Al Battista By the way, Did W really do anything for power, and he is already wealthy beyond belief? Sure, people that run for the prez position are all egos looking for power. However, after leaving office he has done nothing to enhance his position in power or wealth…See More

His days in college and when he was a professed alcoholic are far different than the day he was reborn again in Christ; became a devout Christian with the personal relationship with Jesus Christ; A great Governor; I devoted husband and father; and all-around outstanding human being

To throw stones at him after repenting and changing his life is a sad state of our country

To each that have no sin cast the first stone

George Bush and 48 other countries invaded Iraq with Democrat leadership beating the drums louder than any Republican – starting with Bill Clinton and Secretary of State Albright in the 90s

Al Battista I’ve been a Libertarian since 1979. We went to one of their first organizational meeting in Washington, District of Corruption when we lived there. Although I worked hard for the defeat of Kerry, I did not change my Party to RepublICAN until Romney ran in 2008, so I could vote for him in the primary. Only those with a vested interest in another candidate or the uninformed could not see that Romney’s record was the best to successfully fix the broken parts of our USA. I will probably change back to Libertarian if Rand makes it to the primaries-although he will be smeared by both demonRats and republicans. Otherwise, Ben Carson is the only other worthwhile candidate! Of course, Americans are so dumbed down today that they will not recognize the genius of the two best candidates! How do we make people see the only viable candidates are the ones that are attacked by leftists and republicans?

A Brief Education About the Private Corporation Called The Federal Reserve Bank!

Federal Reserve Fraud

Andy Naylor


The purpose of this application report is to describe the problems with The Federal Reserve and the money system and explain why I think these are problems today. I think this is important because it has to do with everyone in the United States. I will examine the perspectives of three economists, and analyze my findings. In this report I hope to accomplish proving how the American public was lied to and robbed of their gold and silver supply.My first economist is Tom Rose, an ex-religious agnostic who later became a Christian after studying the Bible. He is a retired professor of economics from Grove City College, Pennsylvania. He is author of seven books and hundreds of articles dealing with economic and political issues.

My second economist is Steven Jacobson, author of the audiotape series Mind Wars.

My third economist is Alan Greenspan, Chairman of the Board of Governors of the Federal Reserve System and Chairman of the Federal Open Market Committee.

Alan Greenspan, at the annual Dinner and Francis Boyer Lecture of The American Enterprise Institute for Public Policy Research on December 5, 1996 stated, “Augmenting concerns about the Federal Reserve is the perception that we are a secretive organization, operating behind closed doors, not always in the interests of the nation as a whole. This is regrettable, and we continuously strive to alter this misperception.”

My research and findings will show otherwise. I will show how the Federal Reserve has confused the public, lied to them and stole their gold and silver.

In a letter to Thomas Jefferson in 1787, John Adams wrote: “All the perplexities, confusion, and distress in America arise, not from defects of the Constitution, not from want of honor or virtue, so much as from downright ignorance of the nature of coin, credit and circulation.”

It was Daniel Webster who said; “Of all the contrivances devised for cheating the laboring classes of mankind, none has been more effective than that which deludes him with paper money.”

Garet Garrett, in writing about the Federal Reserve System and World War I, said:

…after many years of blundering toward it, and only a few months before the beginning of the war in Europe (WWI), we had found the formula for the most efficient credit machine that was ever invented. This was the Federal Reserve System. Most people are unsure of the meanings of words such as money, dollar, wealth, inflation and credit. The average person would be very surprised if they knew how the money system used to work compared to how it operates now.

According to Jacobson, The essence of psychological warfare is to confuse the meaning of words, and infiltrate the mind with conflicting concepts. Jacobson goes on to say that the use of the word Federal in the name federal Reserve leads the public to believe that the Federal Reserve is a government institution, when it is really a private corporation owned by foreign and domestic banks and operated for profit. The FED controls nation’s money supply and interest rates, and there by manipulates the entire economy, in violation of Article 1, Section 8 of the United States Constitution that expressly charges Congress with power to coin money and regulate the value thereof. Article 1, Section 10 of the constitution says: No State shall make any thing but gold and silver Coin a Tender in payment of Debts.

Federal Express and Federal Ammunition Company both have the word federal in them but the public knows about them, they know they are not government agencies because they are not misled about the companies.

Over time, gold and silver coins were removed from our money supply and removed as backing for our paper currency and replaced with debt (or credit). Credit is only in our minds. It is an idea, not a thing. It is expressed by bookkeeping entries and computer symbols.

According to Jacobson, “The manipulation of words and their meaning is the key to controlling what people think. Traditional definitions are eliminated while new meanings are repeated over and over again until accepted.”

The definition of dollar has changed to hide the fact that a dollar is not money, but a unit of measurement for gold and silver coin. Title 12 United States Code Section 152 says: “The terms lawful money or lawful money of the United States shall be construed to mean gold or silver coin of the United Sates.” Title 31 United States Code, Section 5101 says: “The money of account of the United States shall be expressed in dollars.”

Hundreds of years ago people would pay the local goldsmith to store their gold for them in his vault. He would then give them a receipt for the amount of gold that was stored. The receipt was not money, it was a money substitute. It was later common for people to use the receipts as payment for goods and services since they could be exchanged for the gold held in the vault at any time.

The goldsmith found out that only a small amount of the gold was ever claimed since people just kept exchanging the receipts. The goldsmith started writing receipts for more gold than he had, using some of the receipts to buy things and loaning the rest at interest, while taking title to real property as collateral. The gold for these extra receipts did not exist. By adding to the amount of receipts in circulation, the goldsmith stole from the people with the real receipts and decreased the value of the real gold receipts by creating inflation. The more of something there is, the less it is worth and more it takes to trade it for something else. Paper currency is a money substitute, it is not money. It is only valid when the number of paper currency equals the amount of real money that it is a substitute for. By manipulating the number of receipts in circulation, the goldsmith stole the wealth of the town without anyone figuring it out. By lowering the number of receipts, he could make money scare, creating a depression where he could foreclose on the property and magnify his riches. He could then quicken economic activity and bring abundance by raising the number of receipts until his next rip off.

America’s economic problems started with issuing fraudulent receipts for gold that does not exist. This became standard procedure for the banking business.

The recent equivalent to the goldsmith’s receipt for gold is the Federal Reserve Note. The word “Federal” implies Federal government, but the Federal Reserve is a privately owned corporation. The word “Reserve” implies that something gives the paper receipt value, but no gold or silver backs this paper. The word “Note” implies a contract, because legally a note must state who is paying, what is being paid, to whom and when.

Most people say something like, “I have a dollar bill”. But what is a bill? A bill is a receipt of a debt owed by one person or company to another. Therefore, a “dollar bill” is a receipt (or bill) of debt of one dollar that is owed.

According to Jacobson, from 1914 to 1963, Federal Reserve Notes never claimed to be money, nor did they claim to be dollars. A note for five dollars read: “The United States of America will pay to the bearer on demand five dollars.” How can a promise to pay five dollars be five dollars? To the left of the President’s picture and above the bank seal, it said: “This note is legal tender for all debts public and private, and is redeemable in lawful money at the United States Treasury or at any Federal Reserve Bank.” In 1963 the FED began to issue its first series of notes without the promise, while taking notes with the promise out of circulation. How can paper become what it promises by removing the promise? To the left of the President’s picture and above the bank seal, it now read: “This note is legal tender for all debts public and private.” A note is an IOU, it is proof of debt. It is not possible to pay off a debt with a debt. No debt can be paid in full unless paid in gold or silver, coined and regulated in value by Congress. The name “Federal Reserve Note” is a fraudulent label since each word claims to be something that in reality it is not. By removing the promise to redeem the note in lawful money, the Federal Government in cooperation with the Federal Reserve, eliminated the monetary system of the United States as established by the Constitution and replaced it with something totally different.

If you are holding a one dollar Federal Reserve Note, the question is, what is it one dollar of? The answer is absolutely nothing. The number one measures no substance. The only thing that give paper money value is the confidence people have in it as is stated in chapter 30 of our textbook. Federal Reserve Notes are only accepted because people believe they have value. If the truth were ever found out, it would cause fininancial chaos because people would know they have no value.

There are only two economic systems. They are barter and credit. Barter is the trading of one thing of value for something else of value. A money system using gold and silver coin is a barter system. Throughout history, many different things have been used for bartering because money, in and of itself, does not exist. Something must be used as money. People have traded for goods and services using farm animals, large rocks, shells and crops.

Gold and silver have been used as money worldwide for thousands of years. All things used as money have had one thing in common, they were all tangible wealth. They were all things you could touch. They were all things you could weigh and measure. Credit, however, is intangible. You cannot touch credit. You cannot weigh and measure it because there is no substance to weigh and measure. It is all imagination.

Credit is not wealth. No work is used in the creation of credit other than a booking entry. Hundreds of years ago, when the goldsmith issued his first receipt for gold that did not exist, he created credit and inflation, because credit and inflation are the same thing. They are both receipts for capital that does not exist. They are both an imaginary unit of exchange. When half of the receipts circulating as a money substitute are redeemable in gold, the other half of the receipts are both credit and inflation. When none of the receipts are redeemable, all of it is credit and inflation. Credit is inflation, therefore, the only cure for inflation is real, honest money.

A twenty dollar gold coin is twice as large, and twice as heavy as a ten dollar gold coin. A dollar is a unit of measurement for gold and silver coin to insure uniform weight, purity, and value. A dollar unit of paper money that is not redeemable in gold or silver coin is a dollar unit of inflation, which is a dollar unit of credit, which is a dollar unit of nothing.

The purpose of paper money that is not redeemable for gold or silver coin is to get things without paying for them. Those who issue and control paper money as credit get everything for nothing. The cost to the Federal Reserve for printing a “note” is about two cents, no matter what denomination is printed on it. Paper money as credit is used to take wealth using numbers where numbers of nothing are exchanged for things of substance and value. This grand theft occurs in full view unnoticed because the public has been made an accessory to the crime by accepting pieces of paper with numbers on them in place of lawful money, not knowing the difference between worthless “notes” and lawful money.

Oliver Ellsworth, the countries third Chief Justice of the Supreme Court said of paper money: “This is a favorable moment to shut and bar the door against paper money. The mischief of the various experiments which have been made are now fresh in the public mind and have excited the disgust of the respectable parts of America.”

Roger Sherman, a delegate from Connecticut and author of the gold and silver coin provision of the constitution, wrote a condemnation of paper money entitled A caveat Against Injustice in which he said…”If what is used as as a Medium of Exchange is fluctuating in its value it is no better than unjust weights and measures, both which are condemned by the laws of God and Man, and therefore the longest and most universal Custom could never make the Use of such a Medium either lawful or reasonable.”

And so the framers of the Constitution specified a money system of gold and silver, to be coined and regulated in value by Congress and prohibited by the government from issuing paper money as stated in Article 1 sections 8 and 10 of the Constitution: “Congress shall have Power to coin money and regulate the value thereof. No State shall make any thing but gold and silver Coin a Tender in Payment of Debts.”

When Congress passed the Federal Reserve Act on December 23, 1913. Congressman Charles A. Lindbergh, Sr., father of the famous airman, told Congress after the vote, “When the President signs this act, the invisible government by the money power will be legalized.” President Woodrow Wilson signed the act into law, turning over the money system of the country to a group of private bankers and allowed them to create money by making bookkeeping entries, loan it at interest, and take title to real property as collateral. Because of this, the citizens of the United States have lost control over their money system and their government. The banking system operates the same as the goldsmith that deceitfully issued receipts for more gold than was on deposit.

According to Jacobson, Federal Reserve Notes are evidence of debt the U.S. Government owes to the owners of the Federal Reserve the payment of which is guaranteed by the collateral of all property and income of all U.S. citizens. When the U.S. Government needs to borrow money, the Treasury creates a bond, and promises to pay a specified amount of money at a specified interest on a specified date. This bond is evidence of debt just as an. I.O.U. is evidence of debt. This interest-bearing debt is the foundation for this nation’s money supply and its payment is guaranteed by the collateral of all property and income of all U.S. citizens. The Federal Reserve “buys” this debt simply by making a bookkeeping entry for the amount and writing a check against no funds, and then converts it into paper currency and checkbook money.

The U.S. Bureau of Engraving prints the paper currency in whatever denominations ordered by the Federal Reserve and charges about two cents for each note, regardless of the denominations, which the Federal Reserve “pays for” by making another bookkeeping entry and writing another bad check. In effect the Federal Reserve lends the U. S. Government its own credit, our credit, and then charges interest on it. If the public does this, it is called kiting, which according to Webster’s dictionary is defined as, “to use (a bad check) to get credit or money”.

If a citizen does this they can be jailed or fined for it.

Every dollar created by the Federal Reserve System is debt for the citizens of the United States, which the central bank collects interest on, in addition to the interest from the bond created by the Treasury that put this magic money making machine in motion. The Federal Reserve inflates the amount of the bond in order to make even more loans of imaginary dollars and collect more interest on an investment that cost nothing. Under fractional reserve banking, the amount of money a bank can create is limited by the reserve ratio or fraction it is required to maintain. For example, when the reserve ratio is ten to one, a bank can create and loan ten dollars for each dollar held in reserve and charge interest on it. While the reserves of the goldsmith were gold, the reserves of the Federal Reserve is paper, nothing more than bookkeeping entries that are a record of debt.

The absurdity of the situation is that if there were no debts, there would be no money, since every dollar of paper currency and checkbook money is loaned into circulation. And, in order to pay the interest, there has to be another loan because the banking system only creates the principal and not the interest. In fact, the interest can never be paid because it is not possible to return to the bank more dollars than were created, making it inevitable that the Federal Reserve Banking System acquire title to all wealth in the nation. This is exactly what the Framers of the Constitution intended to prevent when they specified a money system of gold and silver coin and prohibited the government from issuing paper money, because a nation that uses money based on debt can never be free of debt.

Increasing the amount of currency and checkbook money increases inflation. Creating new dollars reduces the value of all dollars, resulting in higher prices. By manipulating the quantity of created dollars, the purchasing power of every dollar is altered. Depressions are the result of private bankers reducing the money supply by tightening credit and withdrawing currency, causing a drop in prices, unemployment and foreclosure of property. This is premeditated theft.

Thomas Jefferson warned against private banks when he said: “If the American people ever allow private banks to control the issue of their currency, first by inflation and then by deflation, the banks and corporation that will grow up around them will deprive the people of all property until their children wake up homeless on the continent their fathers conquered.”

By calling gold and silver “money”, and then calling Federal Reserve Notes “money”, the two blended together in the public’s minds so that over time the difference between them was erased from the people’s memories. A promise to pay money substituted for lawful money until the promise was removed. Exchanging paper currency is not a complete transaction until payment is made in gold or silver coin. Until then, it is both credit and debt a record of a specific amount of money to be paid or received.

Credit, a deferred payment and debt, a sum of money due, are the same thing. It is hidden by deceptive double-entry bookkeeping where a debt becomes an asset by calling it a credit. Paper money that redeems nothing only appears to have value because it can be exchanged for things of value. When a piece of paper representing debt is exchanged for wealth, someone has been robbed. Paper money transfers wealth from one person, then from another, then from another, and on and on until the last person will be stuck with it.

During the Great Depression people who had gold in the banks wanted the banks to honor their contract to redeem the paper currency for gold.. The fraudulent nature of fractional reserve banking was at risk of being exposed because there was not enough gold on deposit in the banks to redeem all Federal Reserve Notes issued promising payment in gold. That was when President Roosevelt declared a national emergency and closed the banking system for two days as recommended by the Board of Directors of the Federal Reserve Bank of New York. Congress then passed the Emergency Banking Act declaring it illegal for U.S. citizens to own gold under penalty of up to a $10,000 fine and/or up to 10 years in prison. The people exchanged their gold and gold certificates for Federal Reserve Notes of created dollars based on debt, which stated a promise of redemption in lawful money.

Gold was now removed from the system leaving silver dollars as the only lawful money available. Silver was eventually eliminated from the money system, leaving the public with a totally scam money system of irredeemable paper currency and copper-nickel clad tokens that represent a debt owed to the owners of the Federal Reserve Banking System, the payment of which is guaranteed by the collateral of all property and income of all U.S. citizens.

According to Jacobson, when banks cannot honor their contract to redeem their notes for gold or silver coins, they are bankrupt. The contract between the people and the Federal Reserve printed on each bank note promising to pay in lawful money was invalidated because the system went bankrupt and because the amended version of the “Trading with the Enemy Act of 1917” placed all U.S. citizens in the category of enemy, and no contract is considered valid between enemies. American citizens were declared to be the enemy by their own government, for indeed they would be if the people ever discovered what had happened to their money.

Being unable to trade in wealth such as gold and silver coin enslaves the people to those who create and control what is being called money. All it took to rob the public was to convince people that paper and credit are money. The Federal Government and the Federal Reserve have the power to create unlimited amounts of credit because credit does not exist. It is not a tangible substance, but an idea represented by bookkeeping entries and computer symbols.

To pay means to deliver a tangible substance as money like gold and silver coin. Where there is no substance, there is no payment. There is only pretend payment. Banks do not really lend money, they only pretend to lend money. They put no money in a borrower’s account. They only make bookkeeping entries that are reduced as the borrower writes checks against imagined deposits.

When the banks charge interest on a loan they do not make, banks impart psychological value to numbers of nothing. Charging interest sustains the illusion that banks loan something of value, when all they do is rent the appearance of money.

Three years after signing the Federal Reserve Act into law, President Woodrow Wilson made the following statement: “Our system of credit is concentrated. The growth of the nation, therefore, and all our activities are in the hands of a few men. We have come to be one of the worst ruled, one of the most completely controlled and dominated governments in the civilized world–no longer a government by free opinion, no longer a government by conviction and the vote of the majority, but a government by the opinion and duress of small groups of dominant men.”

According to Jacobson, the Secretary of the Treasury is not the U.S. Secretary of the Treasury because the U.S. Treasury was bankrupted in 1933. The Secretary of the Treasury is not paid by the United States Government. The Secretary serves as U.S. Governor of the International Monetary Fund as receiver of the bankrupt United States, collecting the debt from U.S. citizens. According to Tom Rose, economics is the science of choice: the science, or study, of how man values alternative choices, and how he acts in implementing those choices in order to maximize his sense of well-being. This definition is somewhat broader than the dictionary definition of economics, that economics is “a social science concerned chiefly with description and analysis of production, distribution and consumption of goods and services.”

He defines Biblical economics as what the Bible says about man. He says that we must always remember that God is the Author and Controller of all economic law, and that man’s role is to discover and to apply God’s law in the created universe. Tom Rose says that according to Leviticus 19:35-36 monetary inflation is immoral, whether it is effected by the government treasury’s printing fiat money, or whether it is brought about by the central bank (Federal Reserve Bank) “validating” government deficits through sophisticated, hard to understand forms of credit creation. Monetary inflation, properly defined as the creation of new purchasing media (money), is immoral because it changes the measure of the monetary unit by debauching the currency that people use in their everyday transactions. Monetary inflation is what counterfeiters engage in when they create false money, and it is just as morally wrong for civil rulers to “legally” create false money as it is for counterfeiters to do it illegally. In short, it is a clear breaking of God’s admonishment to maintain a system of just weights and measures.

Tom Rose says that The Federal Reserve Bank has provided the needed sleight-of-hand credit financing to involve us in every foreign war during the twentieth century. The net result of our getting involved in one foreign war after another has been a consequent steady decline in personal freedom; the growth of a highly centralized, bureaucratic and fascistic government; a horrendous rise in taxation; the planned destruction of the gold standard, which used to give some degree of protection to American citizens against an out-of-control, profligate, high-spending government in Washington, D.C.; and decades of planned monetary inflation which has brought the 1940 purchasing value of the dollar to less than 8 cents. Yes, 92 percent of the value of the 1940 dollar has evaporated as a result of the Federal Reserve’s long-term monetary policy, which has quietly cooperated with the federal government to finance government deficits with Federal Reserve credit.

In conclusion, Alan Greenspan stated, “Augmenting concerns about the Federal Reserve is the perception that we are a secretive organization, operating behind closed doors, not always in the interests of the nation as a whole. This is regrettable, and we continuously strive to alter this misperception.”

According to Jacobson, by using misleading words the Federal Reserve has misled the public. They have over time replaced our system of real money of gold and silver coin with worthless paper, which is against the law according to The Constitution. Tom Rose says that according to Leviticus 19:35-36 monetary inflation is immoral, because it is not an honest standard as God commands in Leviticus.

I think the only solution to this problem is to do away with the Federal Reserve and go back to the way it used to be and have our money system based on gold and silver coin. As Jacobson said, the only solution to the problem is honest money. Besides the economic issues I have mentioned in this paper, there are other good reasons to have our money system based on gold and silver coin. For one thing, there would be no more counterfeiters. The only reason people do that now is because paper is pretty worthless. But they print a value on it, and all of a sudden it’s worth something. But you cannot counterfeit gold or silver. You cannot take an ounce of gold or silver and make it worth more than it is already worth. If you take an ounce of gold and stamp it into a US gold coin, it is worth no more than an ounce of gold. You can create paper money, just like The Federal Reserve does. But you cannot create gold or silver.

Another good reason for gold and silver coin is that it doesn’t wear as bad as paper money does. Paper money is frequently replaced because it wears out so quickly. I have silver dollars over 130 years old and they are still in great shape. In a way, gold and silver never wear out because at the worst they will wear down the fine edges. When this happens, they can just be recycled again into new coins.

I think in this paper I have accomplished what I have set out to do, that being to describe the problems with The Federal Reserve and the money system and explain why I think these are problems today. I have proved how the American public was lied to and robbed of their gold and silver supply.

A Multi-Millionaire’s Personal Blueprint For Surviving the Coming Currency Collapse:
“This is what I’m doing to protect my family and my finances –
I recommend you do the same.”   (Regardless of how little you can start with, today!)

Dear Fellow American,

Do you believe America’s financial problems from 2008 have been fixed?

Do you think we’ll have another banking crisis in the next few years, or a problem with our currency?

If you are concerned about these possibilities, you are not alone.

After all: What we are witnessing in America today is unprecedented.

Our government has embarked on a gross, out-of-control experiment, expanding the money supply 400% in just six years, and more than doubling our national debt since 2006.

It took our nation 216 years to rack up the first $8.5 trillion in debt… then just 8 more years to double that amount.

And this is precisely why so many questions about the economy and our future remain. For example…

Why has there been very little inflation thus far? How will we possibly pay back all this debt?

And of course, perhaps the most important question of all: Why has nothing “bad” happened after our government printed more than $4 trillion new dollars out of thin air and borrowed $9.4 trillion more?

Well, as someone who has been investigating this situation closely for years, who has built a $100 million business by capitalizing on expertise in finance and accounting… I am here to tell you with 100% certainty:

America is in for some major changes to our economy, our country, and our very way of life over the next five years.

The way you live, work, travel, retire, invest… everything is going to change. Some of it in ways most people would never expect.

Some time in the next few years, we will experience a “new” crisis of epic proportions.

We’re going to have a major stock market crash – and it will be worse than the one we experienced seven years ago.

We’re going to have a currency crisis too – because investors and governments around the world will realize the U.S. dollar is not the safe haven it once was.

Sooner than most people think, we’ll see the U.S. dollar lose it’s “reserve currency” status, and this will make it much harder for our government to borrow money, and have our military stationed in more than 150 countries.

As my friend James Rickards (who’s a financial lawyer and consultant for the U.S. government) wrote in his book Currency Wars:

“If the currency collapses, everything else goes with it… stocks, bonds, commodities, derivatives and other investments are all priced in a nation’s currency. If you destroy the currency, you destroy all markets and the nation.”

We’re going to have massive changes to our retirement system and Social Security. We’re likely to see huge tax increases and even a “wealth tax,” which levies a fee on all your savings and any assets of value.

We’re going to see all kinds of new laws and rules about what you can do with your money, just like House of Representatives bill H.R. 2847, which went into effect July 1, 2014. This law made it extremely difficult, if not possible, for the average American to get some of his money out of U.S. dollars, and into more stable currencies via foreign banks. In the months and years to come we’re going to see more and more of these “capital controls” placed on our personal savings… We’re going to have a massive inflation – when the trillions and trillions of newly printed dollars begin making their way into the economy.

We’ll also witness major changes to the very fabric of our society. Destroying a nations’ money in this manner wrecks businesses, friendships, and families, who simply don’t understand and aren’t prepared for what will happen.

Believe me, I don’t take these predictions lightly – and I have no interest in trying to scare you.

I’m simply following my research to its logical conclusion.

I did the same thing when I was one of the first analysts to accurately predict the collapse of the world’s largest mortgage bankers – Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac.

I did the same when I dug into the finances of GM and realized this once great American institution would soon go bankrupt as well. I did the same General Growth Properties (the biggest owner of mall property in America).

When I first presented my case and exposed the facts about these institutions at economic conferences, people got angry.

They couldn’t refute my research… but they weren’t ready to accept the enormity of the conclusions either.

And now, the same financial problems I’ve been tracking from bank to bank… and from company to company for the last decade have found their way into the U.S. Treasury.

The next phase of this crisis will threaten our very way of life.

The savings of millions will be wiped out. This disaster will change your business and your work. It will dramatically affect your savings accounts, investments, and retirement.

It will change everything about your normal way of life: Where you vacation… where you send your kids or grandkids to school… how and where you shop… the way you protect your family and home.

Look…

I know many people see the recovered stock market, the rebound in real estate prices, and want to believe everything is “back to normal.”

But I promise you, nothing is “normal” about what is happening in America today. It is all smoke and mirrors – the result of an out-of-control government experiment with our money supply.

After all, how can it be “normal” when…

* Roughly 75% of Americans are living paycheck to paycheck, with essentially zero savings, according to a recent study by Bank-Rate.

* The “labor force participation rate” (basically the percentage of able-bodied people who are actually working) has fallen every year since 2007 and is at its lowest level since the 1970s. (Source: The U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics)

* How can things really be “normal” in America, when the number of people on food stamps has basically doubled since Barack Obama took office… and when HALF of all children born today will be on food stamps at some point in their life?

Yes, you read that correctly: Roughly 50% of all children born in America today will be on food stamps at some point in their lifetime. Does that sound “normal” to you?

* Can our country really be back to “normal” when, according to the most recent numbers from the Census Bureau, an incredible 49% of Americans are receiving benefits from at least one government program EVERY SINGLE month?

* Or when 52% of all American workers make less than $30,000 a year?

* Can things really be “normal” in America when at one point, a single U.S. government-controlled (or do they control the government?) agency (the Federal Reserve) was purchasing up to 70% of the bonds issued by the U.S. Treasury – simply by creating money out of thin air?

* Or when the “too-big-to-fail-banks” that got bailed out in 2007 are actually 37% larger than they were back then?

* And how can things be normal when our country’s money supply has increased by 400% since 2006 – all just printed out of thin air. Look at this chart below… it should scare the hell out of you…

It shows that what has taken place over the past few years with the U.S. dollar is something straight out of Weimar Germany… or the last 20 years in Zimbabwe.

Like I said, no one can tell you when exactly the next crisis is coming. Not me… not anyone else. But I assure you, what’s going on today sure as the dickens isn’t “normal.”

And it’s guaranteed to end in a disaster.

This is why I recently put together a 107-page Blueprint, detailing the exact steps I’m taking to prepare for this inevitable crisis. I strongly encourage you to take these simple steps too.

My new work is called: America 2020 – The Survival Blueprint.

This is a handbook, a blueprint, and an owner’s manual for how to protect yourself and your family over the next five years.

One thing you need to keep in mind is…

The next big crisis in America is NOT going to be a “banking crisis” like we had in 2007.

It’s going to be a currency crisis that’s much bigger… and government bailouts aren’t going to do a damn thing to help.

I’m so concerned, I’m doing something I’ve never done before…

I’m giving away my 107-page Blueprint FOR FREE to any U.S. resident with a domestic postal address.

All I ask is that you pay $5 to cover the costs of shipping this Blueprint to your door.

Why am I doing this?

Why am I giving away so much valuable information for free?

Two reasons.

For one, it’s the right thing to do.

The American people deserve to know what our government has done, what’s coming next, and what you must do to protect yourself and your family from the disaster our government has created.

Many of the smartest people in the industry… like CIA and Pentagon insider Jim Rickards… hedge fund multimillionaire Jim Rogers… and superstar investor Kyle Bass (the minimum to invest with Bass is $5 million), are all taking precautions against a serious market crash and financial crisis.

Rickards is publically recommending people rush to buy gold, real estate and hard assets
Rogers moved his entire family to Singapore to essentially get them out of America.
And Bass built a 41,000 square foot ranch stocked with firearms and gold

But now, with “The Survival Blueprint,” there are easy ways for every American to protect their family and their wealth, no matter how much you have in the bank.

I know that the fewer people who are prepared, the worse this crisis is going to be.

The second reason I’m giving this information away for free is because I know my Baltimore-based firm (which I started 16 years ago) does the best work in America when it comes to retirement, investing, and protecting your assets and your family.

I know that if I can help you protect yourself from the disaster that’s just around the corner, by sending you a FREE copy of one of my firms’ most important pieces of work, you might become a raving fan and a loyal subscriber over the long term.

It’s my favorite strategy for business and in life: Do more for others than anyone else does.

And I know that rather than TELLING you about our work… the best thing I can do is simply SHOW you what we do, with essentially a free sample – and no obligation for you to ever purchase anything from us ever again.

That’s why I’m happy to send you my just published, America 2020 – The Survival Blueprint for free, as long as you’ll cover the $5 shipping charge.

I have personally already taken the necessary steps to protect myself and my family from the next inevitable crisis.

But I know literally millions of hardworking Americans have not done a thing – or have not done enough.

And that is why my America 2020 – The Survival Blueprint is packed with literally dozens of useful ideas that will help protect you and your family.

Including:

* The three assets you (legally) do not have to report to the government (page 27)

Most Americans don’t know there are three legal assets that you never, ever have to report to the government.

Yes, you still have to pay taxes if you earn income on these assets or sell for a profit, but you LEGALLY DO NOT have to tell the government or anyone else in the world that you own them.

The benefit of this should be obvious…

Nothing is more dangerous than a broke, desperate, and well-armed government.

The less the government knows about where you have your money, the better. They will simply have a very hard time taking what they don’t know you have.

Gold can be such an asset!  How would you like access to low cost gold, and if you will, let us help you get some FREE Gold? Watch this video on how to earn FREE gold, just by saving money in the stable form of gold.

https://youtu.be/ver5iSoXmvs

I personally have quite a large stake in in one of these three assets. I’m not going to get into the details on what it is here, but I explain everything in my free Blueprint.

Every American needs to get some money beyond the government’s reach.
That’s only the beginning…

And that’s just the very beginning of what my Blueprint contains. You’ll also learn…

* The absolute #1 best way to get out of any jam during the next crisis. This is a technique you absolutely must prepare for and know how to use. This strategy was taught to me by one of the richest and most successful men I know, and I most recently saw him put it to use when we were traveling together in South America. I know this strategy will save me or someone I love in the future. (page 67)

* How to safely and legally move as much money out of the U.S. and out of the U.S. dollar… without having to report a single penny of it to the U.S. government. Yes, this is all completely legal and it’s a strategy used by many of my friends and colleagues. (page 32)

* How one small neighborhood survived after hurricane Katrina hit New Orleans. So many neighborhoods were destroyed and looted. But one used a radical technique to survive pretty much unscathed. What these folks did is extreme, and may not be right for you, but I think you could definitely put together a version of this strategy for your own neighborhood. The key is to know about it and prepare in advance. (page 71)

*While silver for less than $3 (when you can find it at these prices) is great, low cost gold, yes, and free gold, should be part of your savings strategy, as well! It’s important to remember: Silver and gold are the ultimate currency in a real financial crisis.  THE U S CONSTITUTION Article one, section 10, clause 1 states “..nothing but gold and silver is tender in payments for ALL debts…”

* The most valuable asset in a time of crisis. There’s no telling exactly how bad things are going to get as this crisis unfolds in America. There could be riots, protests, mobs, bank runs, even massive arrests, for extended periods of time. (page 53)

But the good news is, there is one asset you can own (now widely available in America), which should help protect you and your family from this chaos… and could also likely make you a small fortune in the years to come.

In fact, an index tracking this asset has absolutely crushed the stock market. Since 1992, it’s returned well over 1,100% gains.

Best of all, it provided these gains with almost no volatility. Just look at the chart below.

See how that black line goes straight up, without any hiccups?

Multimillionaire investor Barton Biggs, who has done exhaustive research on which types of assets survive a crisis, says this particular asset has historically “protect[ed] both your wealth and your life.”

During World War II, for example, when millions of families lost their entire life savings through inflation or government seizure, this was the one asset that enabled some families to survive… and to protect, preserve, and grow their money.

That’s why it’s an asset so many of the richest people in the United States are buying. I’m talking about the Walton family (of Walmart fame), Bill Gates, Ted Turner, the Hilton family, Charles Schwab, Microsoft billionaire Paul Allen, the Hunt family (of Texas oil fame), the Hearst family, the Ford family, and more.

As my multi-millionaire friend Doug Casey says, it’s the ONE THING you should own in the years to come.

I’ve personally spent an extraordinary amount of time and money over the past three years acquiring this asset in my hometown. You certainly don’t have to go to the lengths I’ve gone… but I strongly encourage you to do something similar.

The America 2020 – Survival Blueprint contains all the details on everything you need to know… and so much more too… including:

* The world’s three safest currencies. You can buy them right here in America, without ever leaving home, and without ever opening an “offshore” account, or anything like that. (page 65)

* My favorite private gold storage facility in America. You can find one of these operations in virtually every American city and town – and this keeps your assets out of the prying hands of banks and other financial institutions that are beholden to the government. (page 66)

Yet, you don’t need to pay for storage if you follow our plan.  Small amounts of gold are easy to store safely, and to carry around in your pocket.

Did you know that deployed Special Forces troops are issued a necklace of gold that breaks into 1/10 of an ounce pieces for dire circumstances they might find themselves in. That is still a very expensive meal if you have to trade a piece of the necklace for just enough food to survive for a day! HOW ABOUT WALKING AROUND WITH A COUPLE OF GRAMS OF GOLD IN YOUR POCKET. A gram is 1/31 of an ounce. My personal survival strategy is to carry $100 or so of gold in grams. You can too if you let us help you.

* Where to go during a crisis in the United States if you don’t have a rural retreat, and can’t leave your state. Here’s the safest place in just about every state. (page 70)

* A one-of-a-kind silver investment that could pay you 1,000%. There’s one type of unique silver investment most people don’t know about, which could eventually be the most profitable investment in America when the next crisis hits. This investment is truly one of a kind – there’s nothing else like it in the world as far as I know. (page 47)

* A simple way to organize all of your financial documents so you always know where everything is at a moment’s notice. Again, this is what I do personally. It’s simple. It’s easy. It’s free, and takes very little time. (page 72)

* The secret paper “currency” used by the world’s wealthiest people. This has nothing to do with the U.S. dollar, the euro, the Swiss franc or any other paper currency you’ve heard of before. It also has nothing to do with gold, silver, or any precious metals. But these certificates are among the most lucrative investments in the world, and allow you to completely separate as much money as you want from the U.S. banking and financial system. (page 74)

* How to quickly open a foreign bank account online, no visit required. Not everyone needs or wants to do this, but if you do, we’ll tell you exactly whom to get in touch with and what to say to do it as simply and easily as possible. (page 31)

* Two of the most dangerous investments for the next five years. Almost every American has one or both of these – but probably doesn’t realize the danger. (page 75)

* The absolute best types of businesses to start and the best types to own (either privately or as a public shareholder) over the next five years. This is where I have the bulk of my personal portfolio. It protects you against so many things… and gives you the opportunity to make potentially extraordinary gains. (page 78)

Working with us puts you into an international business.  You will never be on the scale of GE, Boeing, Amazon or the others, but you can operate as they do.  We do not offer tax advice, but as a tax man told me, you only pay taxes on the money you bring into the USA.

* The only five things you absolutely, positively must have to ensure you and your family can safely survive just about any crisis.

I know… many “survival experts” list dozens and dozens of things you should stock up on. But believe me, there are basically five things you need. And with these items in hand, you’ll be able to weather whatever comes your way. This is what I’m doing personally – it’s what I recommend you do too. (page 70)

And much, much more.

Look, I can’t tell you exactly when these life-changing events are coming to America. No one can.

I can only tell you that I’m certain they’ll occur. And that our country will look very, very different in 5 years than it does today.

Just remember: We as Americans are not immune to the basic laws of economics and finance.

Over the past 100 years, many other governments around the globe have tried to do exactly what our government is doing today…

That is: Print money in massive quantities to pay growing, insurmountable debts.

In just the past 100 years, for example, we’ve seen this scenario play out in Germany, Russia, Austria, Argentina, Brazil, Chile, Poland, the Ukraine, Japan, and China, just to name a few.

And it has a perfect track record…

In every case, in every instance, printing and borrowing money on such levels has ALWAYS led to financial and economic crisis.

Today, that process is well underway in the United States.

The point is, you absolutely must take the necessary steps now to protect yourself and your family.

Today, we as a nation owe more money to more people than any nation in history. We owe more money than all of the European Union combined. And U.S. debt per person is more than twice as much as in the E.U.

Now our politicians will tell you that everything’s OK. They point to a rising stock market, recovering real estate prices, and declining unemployment and say, hey… we’re back on the right track. We’ll be fine.

Our government would have you believe (without any proof whatsoever), that it can order the Federal Reserve to prevent interest rates from ever rising to a level that would cost the American people or the government anything.

Our politicians believe (again, without any proof whatsoever) that they can stimulate the economy by even more deficit spending, so that it grows faster, allowing tax revenues to produce a surplus.

But you know better, my friend. You must know better.

The only question is: Will you take the necessary steps to be ready?

You will if you read and take the simple steps detailed in my 107-page America 2020 – The Survival Blueprint.

And that’s why I want to send you a free copy. Again: All I ask is that you pay $5 to cover the costs of shipping it to your home.

The smartest money-men in America are making preparations right now… shouldn’t you?

I’m talking about people like Bill Gross, who probably knows as much about currencies and debt as anyone in the world. For years he ran the world’s biggest bond fund. He was quoted by Bloomberg, saying:

“We’ve told all of our clients that if you only had one idea, one investment, it would be to buy an investment in a non-dollar currency. That should be on top of the list.”

And Jim Rogers, one of the world’s most successful multi-millionaire investors, who is saying something similar:

“I believe the dollar could lose its status as the world’s reserve currency and medium of exchange, something that would lead to a huge decline in the standard of living for U.S. citizens like nothing we’ve seen in nearly a century.”

Even Warren Buffett, the world’s most renowned investor with a net worth of $63 billion, has reduced his company’s bond holdings to their lowest levels in more than a decade, according to Bloomberg News.

What Bloomberg didn’t mention is that Buffett also moved almost 70% of his remaining government fixed-income investments into foreign currencies. ?

Then, in recent months, Buffett just spent a fortune on a business that will probably see sales quadruple when a big crisis hits. I’m talking about America’s #1 battery maker, Duracell.

Now… I know… the ideas and solutions I’m encouraging you to take might seem somewhat radical to you at first… perhaps even “un-American.”

But the truth is, I’m recommending these steps because I love this country, and I want to see as many people as possible emerge from the mess our government has put us in.

Again: This is what I’m doing personally… for myself and my family. And it’s exactly what you should do too.
And there’s more, too…

When I send you your free copy of America 2020 – The Survival Blueprint, there are three other Research Reports I’ve been working on that I want to give you immediate access to as well, also free of charge.

They are…(If you are already wealthy these reports are vital.  However, most Americans today do not have that wealth.  Our PAY IT FORWARD program gets you in our program at no cost to start. As your wealth grows you can upgrade, and be wealthy, or at least be in position to help your family when disaster strikes.
Research Report #1: The Tax-Free Way to Make 500% in America Today.
Research Report #2: The Gold Investor’s Manual

Most people know gold is a good investment to protect against what could happen in a crisis, but most people don’t have a clue about the best way to buy or store it.

(Follow our program and storage can be free.)

I will be surprised if gold does not reach $5,000 an ounce or $6,000 an ounce in the next few years. Currency expert Jim Rickards says it could reach $7,000 per ounce.
Research Report #3: The 100% Secret

If you want the opportunity to make a lot of money during the coming crisis, one sure way to do it is to learn the intricacies of an unusual investment strategy we have been teaching our readers to use for several years.

Like I said, all three (3) of these Research Reports are FREE.

I’ll also give you a free 30-day trial subscription to my monthly research report, called Stansberry’s Investment Advisory.

In my monthly research report, I will regularly update you on the currency situation, the unintended consequences of the Fed’s money printing, and best ways to grow and protect your money over the next few years.

My Investment Advisory, which you’ll receive on the first Friday of every month, is the perfect way to stay up-to-date on the currency crisis taking place in America right now.

And I ask only that you pay $5 to cover the cost of delivering this Research to your doorstep.

If you like our work, great – I hope you’ll want to keep reading our research and insights in the future. We’ll bill your card a fully-refundable $99 for a full 1-year subscription after your 30-day free trial is over.

This is a fast-moving situation… with lots of moving parts. I have four very smart analysts working with me to stay apace, in my Investment Advisory every month. One is a certified public accountant… another is an expert on science and technology… another is a former money manager… another is an expert on various types of debt.

I think you’d benefit substantially from receiving our work over the next few years… but like I said, if it’s not for you, no problem.

By paying just $5 today, you’ll at least have the information you need to protect yourself from the disaster about to hit our country. Plus, you’ll receive access to a bundle of bonus Research Reports and a free thirty-day trial subscription to my monthly research report, Stansberry’s Investment Advisory. And you are under no obligation whatsoever to buy anything else from me or my firm in the future.

It’s also important to keep in mind that: All of the steps I am recommending you take to protect yourself are simple, cheap, and easy… at least for now.

But that will change very quickly as events unfold.

I know, most people reading this will do nothing. They’ll say to themselves: “I’ll deal with that when the time comes.”

Many of my friends, colleagues, and family members are still in serious denial about a major currency crisis in the United States. But this is natural…

In the world of psychology, they call this the “normalcy bias.”

You see, the normalcy bias actually refers to our natural reactions when facing a crisis.

It causes smart people to underestimate the possibility of a disaster and its effects. People believe that because something has never happened before… it never will. We are all guilty of it… it’s just human nature.

(Porter, “…never happened before?” Maybe you didn’t hear RECENTLY about Poland, Cypress and

Zimbabwe 100 Trillion Dollar Banknotes

How long does it take to buy basic goods in Venezuela? – …a worsening economic situation in Venezuela, thousands queue almost every day … Venezuela installs finger scanners in supermarkets

and many other places!) It may not be in the USA yet, but it is getting mighty close!

What’s scary is the normalcy bias often results in making disastrous situations much worse than they would otherwise be. For example, think about the Jewish populations of World War II…

As Barton Biggs reports in his definitive book, Wealth, War, and Wisdom: “By the end of 1935, 100,000 Jews had left Germany, but 450,000 still [remained]. Wealthy Jewish families… kept thinking and hoping that the worst was over…”

As Biggs says:

People “almost always are too complacent, because they cherish the illusion that when things start to go bad, they will have time to extricate themselves… It never works that way. Events move much faster than anyone expects… History usually doesn’t evolve in a slow and orderly way; often it leaps forward in disorderly, chaotic jumps.”

This point is: Take these simple steps now, while it’s all safe, cheap, easy, and 100% legal. Don’t wait. If you do, it’s very likely the situation will change so fast, it will be impossible for you to do anything about.
