THE BELOW ARTICLE IS GREAT, BUT LEAVES OUT THE ABILITY OF DR CARSON TO REMOVE THE SCHISM, CREATED BY BARRY OBAMA, BETWEEN THE RACES ! BEGINNING WITH OBAMA’S CLAIM THE CAMBRIDGE POLICE WERE STUPID, THROUGH HIS SUPPORT FOR THE GANGSTER MICHAEL BROWN IN FERGUSON. OBAMA HAS CREATED THE WORST ENVIRONMENT FOR RACE RELATIONS SINCE HIS PARTY CONTROLLED THE SOUTHERN STATES AND WATER-HOSED AND BEAT BLACK AMERICANS!
HERE IS THE ARTICLE EXPRESSING MY ENTHUSIASM FOR DR CARSON:
Although Ben Carson is a newcomer to politics, he’s done a relatively good job of sticking close to GOP pack leaders, even overtaking Donald Trump’s impressive lead for a short time. His political inexperience, however, leaves many wondering “can he do it?” Can Ben Carson lead the United States, help restore economic prosperity, protect us from terrorism, and calm racial and political tensions at home that threaten to destroy us? Can the fixer of people fix American politics? Here are some reasons why he just might…
He’s a catalyst for change.
Ben Carson will disrupt the status quo. Unlike many of the other candidates, Dem or GOP, he isn’t bound by DC political ties. He’s fresh off the political boat, as it were, and can bring a new perspective to Washington and the White House. He is willing to state what he believes, even if it isn’t popular, but he does it in a way that demands respect instead of ridicule.
He may be new to politics, but he isn’t new to leadership.
Carson doesn’t have much political experience, but he has a resume chock-full of leadership roles. He was director of pediatric neurology at John Hopkins, and if you don’t think that position entails tough calls and decisions that will affect vulnerable children and parents, then you have another thing coming. He’s also served on the boards of corporations like Kellogg Co. and Costco Wholesale Corp as well as founding and heading his own non-profit.
He’s the smartest in the pack of candidates.
Leading the United States of America isn’t brain surgery, but I would guess it’s pretty darn close. Ben Carson would bring not only his intellectual prowess to the Oval Office, but also his plain old common sense. While the intelligence of many of the candidates can be doubted, no one could ever doubt Ben Carson’s genius stature. Even though he’s new to politics, he has the ability to learn the skills he needs to be able to lead the country well.
He understands healthcare.
One of the biggest issues facing Americans in this presidential election is healthcare: the Affordable Care Act isn’t working, but no one seems to have a good plan to fix it. Because Ben Carson has worked in healthcare for most of his life, he understands the unique pressures doctors face and he understands that patients need exceptional but affordable healthcare. If anyone can fix our healthcare crisis, Dr. Carson can.
A characteristic that has been lost in American politics is civility. Recent elections feature mudslinging and name calling and ad homonym attacks but little in the way of truth mixed with kindness. Carson has proven himself to be soft-spoken and civil even to those he does not agree with. While his opponents dredge up anything they can to attack him, Carson responds with graciousness.
Ben Carson may not have a plethora of elected roles under his belt, but that doesn’t disqualify him from the role of commander in chief. Who’s to say that serving as a senator or representative or even governor–probably the job most similar in nature to that of president—prepares a person for the difficult job of leading the United States of America? Any new president has a steep learning curve, and we think Ben Carson can overcome that learning curve as well as anyone.
WE BELIEVE BEN CARSON CAN OVERCOME THAT LEARNING CURVE BETTER THAN ANYONE RUNNING TODAY!
We are certain any of the republican candidates are much better than anyone the democrats are offering. In my house there has been a lot of interest in Ted Cruz, Donald Trump and Dr Ben Carson. However, Ben Carson seems to carry the day!
ALSO, HE CAN RESTORE THE IMAGE OF HARD WORKING, BLACK AMERICANS AFTER THE IMAGE OF THE GOLFER; DO-NOTHING DURING BENGHAZI; START WORK AT 9 IN THE MORNING; WASTED OBAMA!
What do you think? Is Ben Carson qualified to serve as president? Why or why not?
“They will kill him before they let him be president. It could be a Republican or a Democrat that instigates the shutting up of Trump. Don’t be surprised if Trump has an accident. Some people are getting very nervous: Barack Obama, Valerie Jarrett, Eric Holder, Hillary Clinton and Jon Corzine, to name just a few. It’s about the unholy dynamics between big government, big business, and big media. They all benefit by the billions of dollars from this partnership, and it’s in all of their interests to protect one another. It’s one for all and all for one.”
“It’s a heck of a filthy relationship that makes everyone filthy rich — everyone except the American people. We get ripped off. We’re the patsies. But for once, the ‘powerful socialist cabal’ and the ‘corrupt crony capitalists’ are scared. The over-the-top reaction to Trump by politicians of both parties, the media, and the biggest corporations of America has been so swift and insanely angry that it suggests they are all threatened and frightened like never before.”
Excerpt from Bill Bennett’s “Morning in America” radio show.
IF BILL BENNETT’S PREDICTION COMES TRUE THE ESTABLISHMENT WILL HAVE A FORCE MUCH MORE VIOLENT TO DEAL WITH THAN ISIS, ISIL, DASH, AL-QAEDA, BLACK LIVES MATTER AND OCCUPY WALL STREET PUT TOGETHER! THE FORCE THAT DECIMATED THE NAZI AND IMPERIAL JAPANESE THREAT DURING WORLD WAR II WILL HIT THEM SO HARD THEY WILL NOT KNOW WHAT HIT THEM! IT WILL BE ALL THE EVIDENCE THE PEOPLE NEED TO BE CONVINCED THEY HAVE BEEN CONSPIRED AGAINST! ALL THEIR WONDERFUL WORD ARE BS, WHILE THEY RIP US OFF! MY SUGGESTION TO THE BANKSTERS, POLITICIANS, CRONY CAPITALISTS AND OTHER MEMBERS OF THE ESTABLISHMENT IS TO LET THE ELECTION PLAY OUT WITHOUT ANY SHENANIGANS AGAINST CRUZ, CARSON OR TRUMP!
Here is an explanation of the difference between the terms ISIS and ISIL. I have been suspicious of the term ISIL to which the administration stubbornly clings.
ISIS = Islamic State of Iraq and Syria. Iraq is to the east of Jordan (shaped like the hatchet) and Syria is to the north.
ISIL = Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant. Iraq is still to the east of Jordan, and “the Levant” is a term that comes from “the rising (of the sun, i.e., to the east)” – and is basically the land along the Mediterranean – that includes Lebanon, Israel, and those countries along there.
By saying ISIL, you “negate” Israel as its own country and lump it in with the rest of the countries along the Mediterranean – and Israel sort of disappears (loses its sovereignty) and becomes part of “the Levant ” – which is therefore part of ISIL.
If you’ve wondered, as I have, why all government agencies and especially BHO calls it ISIL and even spells it out every time it’s used, instead of ISIS as the rest of the world, here’s the answer. Decoding Obama’s speech reveals some startling revelations. In one press conference after another, when referring to the Muslim terror super-group ISIS, United States President Barack Obama will use the term ISIL, instead of their former name ISIS, or current name Islamic State. Have you ever wondered about that?
Here is the difference: What makes up the near exact center of the Muslim Levant ? Israel.
ISIL stands for the Islamic State of Iraq and Levant. Now, to us Westerners we don’t really make much of a distinction, do we?
No, honestly from our perspective it’s all about the same. But how would a Muslim living in the Middle East view it? Just what is the Levant anyway? Let’s take a look. The geographical term LEVANT refers to a multi-nation region in the Middle East. It’s a land bridge between Turkey to the north and Egypt to the south.
If you look on a map, however, in the near exact middle of the nations that comprise the Levant, guess what you see? Come on, guess!
****When Barack Obama refers over and over to the Islamic State as ISIL, he is sending a message to Muslims all over the Middle East, that he personally does not recognize Israel as a sovereign nation, but as territory belonging to the Islamic State.
Now you know why Obama has no plan, no goal, and no stated aim for dealing with ISIS.
But he does have a plan, and it’s a really nasty, diabolical one.
Obama’s plan is to drag his feet for as long as he can, doing only the bare minimum that Congress forces him to do. His plan to buy ISIL as much time as possible to make as many gains as they can. Listen as Obama and his press secretary and the spokesperson for the State Department and his Joint Chiefs of Staff painstakingly spells out the letters I-S-I-L so there is no doubt in your mind. And it’s working. The Islamic State has garnered millions of dollars, a vast cache of weapons, and in their latest foray have captured Syrian fighter jets and now 12 commercial passenger planes. With each passing day that Obama fulfills his stated aim of doing nothing, the Islamic State grows by leaps and bounds. The ultimate goal, of course, has not changed and will never change.
The ultimate goal is the destruction of Israel and then the United States.
Now you know a little bit more about why Obama chooses his words so carefully.
“A Jew who votes for Obama (OR ANY DEMOCRAT) is like a chicken who votes for Col.Sanders.”
NOW IT’S MY TURN:
All you idiots of SMART, can’t you finally see Trump has you all fooled into giving him everything he wants? Trump’s a genius! The clowns that think they are the smartest in the room are being lead around by their noses! Trump is the great negotiator! As he manipulated the press and the establishment, I now believe he will get Mexico to pay for the Wall! He can get better deals out of China! Once again he will re-establish good relations with Putin. He may also be able to get that twerp of a clown in North Korea and the terrorists to become more civilized! He is the only one that has a chance to negotiate peace in the Middle East! Until it happened, I couldn’t believe so many Americans could be deceived by Obama, twice! Then I saw Trump perform on the national stage! I thought he was just a lucky guy with connections. Now, I believe he is the knight in shinning armor we have prayed for! I still love a couple of other candidates, but lately Trump has taken the lead!
In case you haven’t caught on yet let’s look at what Trump does to work his magic: He researches the issue of the day. He finds out the truth behind it. He states that fact in an audacious manner! Everyone jumps all over what he said before looking into the truth of the matter, giving him tons of publicity, then the truth emerges and he looks like a hero and a genius!
The most recent example is the claim by democrats and establishment that Trumps calling for the activation of “8 U.S. Code § 1182 – Inadmissible aliens” of 1952 was illegal, unconstitutional and bigoted. It was passed by a democrat congress and signed into law by the democrat Harry Truman. The politician to use it was the democrat Jimmy Carter in 1979 when he gave all alien Shiite Muslims from Iranians 30 days to report. 50,000 did! 15,000 of them didn’t pass the smell test and were deported! When Trump asked the Obama government to apply the law to terrorist jihadists, the likes of Megan Kelly, Josh Earnest, Carly Fiorina, Harry Reid, Hillary Clinton, Lindsy Graham and Paul Ryan all proved how uninformed they are by attacking this law! Trump was right factually, legally and historically and his critics were left to look like fools!
8 U.S. Code § 1182 – Inadmissible aliens
Allows the president, by Proclamation to ban or prevent “All, or any class of immigrants” from the United States!
Please, if you are a member of the deceived class, Google it and see that unlike today, in those days the democrats had some common sense and passed laws that protected the American people! Here are a few of the most pertinent clauses for the situation today:
(3) Security and related grounds
(A) In general Any alien who a consular officer or the Attorney General knows, or has reasonable ground to believe, seeks to enter the United States to engage solely, principally, or incidentally in—
any activity (I) to violate any law of the United States relating to espionage or sabotage or (II) to violate or evade any law prohibiting the export from the United States of goods, technology, or sensitive information,
any other unlawful activity, or
any activity a purpose of which is the opposition to, or the control or overthrow of, the Government of the United States by force, violence, or other unlawful means,
(B) Terrorist activities
(i) In general Any alien who—
has engaged in a terrorist activity;
a consular officer, the Attorney General, or the Secretary of Homeland Security knows, or has reasonable ground to believe, is engaged in or is likely to engage after entry in any terrorist activity (as defined in clause (iv));
has, under circumstances indicating an intention to cause death or serious bodily harm, incited terrorist activity;
(IV) is a representative (as defined in clause (v)) of—
a terrorist organization (as defined in clause (vi)); or
a political, social, or other group that endorses or espouses terrorist activity;
is a member of a terrorist organization described in subclause (I) or (II) of clause (vi);
is a member of a terrorist organization described in clause (vi)(III), unless the alien can demonstrate by clear and convincing evidence that the alien did not know, and should not reasonably have known, that the organization was a terrorist organization;
endorses or espouses terrorist activity or persuades others to endorse or espouse terrorist activity or support a terrorist organization;
has received military-type training (as defined in section 2339D(c)(1) of title 18) from or on behalf of any organization that, at the time the training was received, was a terrorist organization (as defined in clause (vi)); or
is the spouse or child of an alien who is inadmissible under this subparagraph, if the activity causing the alien to be found inadmissible occurred within the last 5 years,
is inadmissible. An alien who is an officer, official, representative, or spokesman of the Palestine Liberation Organization is considered, for purposes of this chapter, to be engaged in a terrorist activity.
Most might think the Security and Terrorist section above are most important. However, I believe Section G is vital to our survival as a nation:
(G) Foreign government officials who have committed particularly severe violations of religious freedom
Any alien who, while serving as a foreign government official, was responsible for or directly carried out, at any time, particularly severe violations of religious freedom, as defined in section 6402 of title 22, is inadmissible.
Why is that more vital than terrorism? Simply because Islam isn’t just a religion, as Americans think of religion! The Muslim is controlled entirely by Islam. He follows it in government, health, marital relations, diet, military matters and especially legal matters.
The concern is in how they interpret “Legal Matters!” It appears from the beheading of an off-duty soldier in England, the beheading of a secretary in Oklahoma and the many shooting from Ft. Hood to San Bernardino every Muslim can determine and be “responsible for or directly carried out, at any time, particularly severe violations of religious freedom.” If the Muslim or a small group of Muslims deem a person is not of the correct religion he can decide to kill him! In other words, if a community of Catholics, Protestants and a Mormon were friends and their Muslim neighbor feels they are infidels, he can be the judge and the executioner! Maybe they have some sort of legal machinations before the Muslim can act, such as issuing a fatwah, but so far it looks like any Muslim at any time can be “responsible for … particularly severe violations of religious freedom.”
If you read The Hadith you will see Muhammad instructs the Muslim to “…lie in wait until the time is right to strike the Infidel…” and “…it’s ok to speak lies…” if it furthers the cause of Islam!
So, if the critics of Trump want to let just any Muslim into the USA, I suggest they rethink such an open welcome. Or, move to Saudi Arabia or a similar country and partake all of their joy! Meanwhile, we need a moratorium on admitting alien Muslims into the USA until they can be properly vetted!

ONE QUESTION: WITH ALL OF THE THUGS ROAMING AROUND, WHY WOULD ANYONE WANT TO GO TO A CHURCH FILLED WITH GOOD PEOPLE TO TAKE OUT HIS ANGER! Jerk, go take out a thug, not the saints.
Dylann Roof is a maniac.
I noticed the atypical action of the media by not using the “Je Suis…” phrase this time with the shooting at the AME church. Could it be the media is not religious? As a Christian I did not use “Je Suis (I am)” for the irreverent magazine in France. However, I will use it for the decent Christian folks in the AME church in Charleston, SC!
Once again, Barry O infers gun control is the answer! Sorry, Mr. Prez, nut control is the ONLY answer.
To my point. We are a country plagued by problems. In the past 6 years, the big problems have become worse, and the small problems have become bigger. I’d rather not explore all of these right now, but the one problem that is looming over all of us is RACISM!
Some have called me a racist, which actually is not true. I should be called a “Thugist.” I dislike thugs of all races. Dylann Roof is a maniacal, cowardly, racist thug! He is the kind of cowardly thugs I cannot stand! Any coward that has to enter a place of praise and worship to our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ, to commit a dastardly deed is a thug of the worst kind.
If he wasn’t a coward, he would have been hanging out with the thugs to rid the world of them! He would not be with the decent church people, to hurt them! If he was courageous, when the thugs committed a crime, he could have gotten rid of those scum. Such a clean up job would help the good people of the country. Destroying decent people hurts the country.
How can we fix this? What can be done to correct the worst problem we face? Only calm, confident intelligence can do it. Not words! Not Obama fantasy phrases! Only the intelligent, calm, confident Ben Carson can offer the leadership to fix this disease that is tearing our country apart!
The only democrat I would consider looking at for president is James Webb. However, he does not have the tools to fix this.
I like Ted Cruz and Rand Paul. While they both appear willing to take on and fix racism, I doubt they have the background to take on this task!
“Not being a career politician I know that before the American people will consider my solutions for fixing America, they will first ask – who is Ben Carson?
To help answer that question, I’ve published a new, easy-to-read short book on my life, simply called My Life. It is based upon my best seller Gifted Hands. I would very much like to send you a copy to read, and share with your friends and family.
While I also like Governor Perry and Scott Walker, they are not in my first tier of preferences, because they are not able to touch this area of racism.
Right now, the elitist repubs are ignoring this awesome candidate. If black people would get behind this wonderful Dr Ben Carson, the repubs would have to take him on! Help us beat the establishment at its monopolistic game! Let’s help Ben Carson win the nomination.
One other reason you should vote for repubs: dems in power do not get the intense scrutiny of repubs. The dems get away with robbing us blind because of the cover they get from the news media. I could cite scores of examples but let us just look at one: Watergate brought down a repub prez because of the intense anal exam by the press. Both Jimmy Carter and Barack Obama have conducted more criminal activity than Nixon ever did. However, did you ever hear of the Jimmy Carter break in to steal evidence in a drug case that he wanted to avoid. Did the press ever go after Obama (or Hillary) for the crimes they were conducting in Benghazi, Libya; the real crimes involved in “Fast and Furious” gun running to Mexico; the intentional acts to incite racism in the Cambridge cop, Harvard Professor situation and many, many more. What, you don’t believe me? Of course, but you would if the press did its job in exposing dem crimes as rapidly and completely as repub crimes!
Wow! That was heavy! Allow me to lighten the mood with a little humor:
Expert Lemon Picker Gelio’s joke
Sally Mullihan of Clermont, Florida Decided to take one of the jobs that most Americans are not willing to do.
Sally applied for a job in a Florida lemon grove
And seemed to be far too qualified for the job.
She had a liberal arts degree from the University of Michigan And had worked as a social worker and a school teacher.
The foreman said, “I have to ask you, Have you had any actual experience in picking lemons?”
“Well, as a matter of fact, I have,” she said:
“I’ve been divorced three times, owned 2 Chryslers and I voted twice for Obama.”
We thank God for the Blessings we have; and the blessings we are receiving! We thank God, for everything!
Yesterday, after months of slowly moving through the legislature, a bill to repeal Common Core education standards came to the floor of the Arizona state Senate. It wasn’t a perfect bill, but it went a long way towards removing the damaging standards and restoring state control over education from an intrusive federal government.
Republicans have a majority in the Arizona legislature, so there was reason to be optimistic that the bill would pass. It had already cleared the state House by a vote of 34-23 in favor, and made its way out of several committees in order to finally make it to the Senate floor.
Unfortunately, when the votes came down, the bill failed to pass, with 13 ayes, 16 nays, and one Member not voting. Naturally, all the Democrats present voted against the bill, but Republicans had the majority. So what happened?
The vote failed, as so many of these votes fail, because Republicans betrayed the principles of smaller government and refused to stand up to federal bullying when they had the chance. State Senators Jeff Dial, Adam Driggs, Steve Pierce, and Bob Worsley voted to keep the standards that are ruining education for students, parents, and teachers alike.
After the vote, several supporters of the bill stood to speak with passion and conviction on the need to repeal Common Core. Their emotional connection to the cause was palpable, as they expressed their frustration with the failure of their colleagues to see reason and do the right thing. No one who opposed the bill chose to explain their votes. Their silence was deafening.
There will be other opportunities to repeal Common Core, in Arizona and in other states, but until Republicans start listening to the American people and having the courage to stand for education freedom, it’s going to be an uphill battle. As FreedomWorks President Matt Kibbe is fond of saying, sometimes you have to beat the Republicans before you beat the Democrats.
If you happen to live in Arizona, feel free to call up State Sens. Dial, Driggs, Pierce, and Worsley, and let them know how disappointed you are with their votes on HB 2190. The only way they’ll do better next time is if they hear, loudly and clearly, from their constituents.
Here is a partial list of how our freedom of Americans have been eroded over the years!
A. THE CIVIL WAR: Slavery may have been the precursor, but the real issue was States Rights. The Constitution envisioned each state to be its own country. Further, each individual citizen of each state was sovereign. The federal government had very limited and defined powers. The only thing the Civil War decided was how much power the feds would have over the citizens and the states!
B. THE INDIAN WARS: If freed slaves could be cheated out of their 40 acres and a mule, and the native American can be forced onto “Reservations” then no man or woman could ever truly be a free citizen because the government can do what it wants at the expense of individuals.
C. THE FEDERAL RESERVE ACT OF 1913: This is a two semester history course, to gain a full understanding about it. In a nut-shell,
“If the American people ever allow private banks to control the issue of their currency, first … ” Despite these warnings, Woodrow Wilson signed the 1913 Federal Reserve Act. A few … Roosevelt knew this history. … “I am afraid the ordinary citizen will not like to be told that the banks can and do create money.”
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.”
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.”
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.
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.”
READ THE BLOG FROM YESTERDAY FOR A BRIEF ARTICLE ON THE PROBLEMS WITH THE FEDERAL RESERVE SYSTEM.
D. Then in 1916 and 1917 Amendment XVI AND OTHER LAW TO FINALIZE ENSLAVEMENT: “The Congress shall have power to lay and collect taxes on incomes, from whatever source derived, without apportionment among the several states, and without regard to any census or enumeration.”
At this point, every American, of every race, color or creed – except for the most wealthy, connected people- was screwed!
How were we screwed? Let’s list just a few items of evidence: World War l; Volstead Act Prohibition 1920 1933; 1929 Depression; robbing individual Americans of their gold as well as most of FDR’s New Deal; World War ll; Korean War; Vietnam War; and most of the political moves in the Middle East since 1948 through today!
Too broad you say? OK! Here are a few specific examples: During the Depression of 1929, my grandfather lost his job. He could also play several instruments and with a few friends could go to the business districts in Boston, set up on the sidewalk, and people would throw coins into their instrument cases so they could bring some food home to the family of 8 kids. Today, you still have the freedom to do so UNTIL THE COPS ARRIVE-if you don’t have a license to be there you will be made to close up your shop or be arrested. Let’s look at another situation from years ago, to today: Until our modern era, if you had a few extra packs of cigarettes AND NO CASH, but the wife needed a loaf of bread and a few vegetables to finish a healthy meal for the family. So, you take your extra pack of cigarettes to your favorite tavern and sell them one at a time until you gather the necessary funds to complete dinner for the family. TODAY, do that and while being arrested you might have a heart attack and die! There are a million more anecdotes, but let’s stop here. You get the picture. AMERICANS ARE NO LONGER FREE! It has been coming in dribbles and drabs for over 150 years! However in the last 50 years of my adult life it has accelerated. Over the last 6 years this old dude has watched a Pharaoh like tyranny descend over the land! If we could only get circumstances as they were in the 1950’s and early 1960s, we might have a chance to save our country without the calamities that lie ahead for us! UNFORTUNATELY, there is never a “Going Back.”
Is this fixable? Yes! Start with the following:
Article 1, Section 10, Clause 1
No State shall … emit Bills of Credit; make any Thing but gold and silver Coin a Tender in Payment of Debts; pass any Bill of Attainder, ex post facto Law, or Law impairing the Obligation of Contracts, or grant any Title of Nobility.
Then the rest of the solution is to start taking our individual responsibilities, learn and abide by the laws of God, and as much as possible ignore the governmental impositions. Yes, obey the laws, or you will get all bound up in red tape and what the system calls “Process,” Remember, they have made so many laws, many of which conflict, that if you make “the man” mad he might cause you headaches! All you can do if that happens is “be still” and hope you get a judge with common sense!
If this scares you, find a “Prepper” or a Morman and learn the basics of survival. Then, get on your knees and pray that our God will restore the “Kingdom of Heaven, on Earth!” Then, use your power as an individual with “Free Will” to learn all that you can about the will of God. A good place to start can be found in The Bible’s, New Testament with the words of Jesus!
Don’t get all bogged down with rules and laws in The Bible-especially the Old Testament. If you worry about all of that you will be as confused as our present governmental system. Keep it simple! Jesus did when he gave us the Greatest Commandment of All-Love God with all, then love your neighbor as yourself! With that constantly in mind, read the stories and words of Jesus to see how to apply the simple government of God in your own life.

We thank God for the Blessings we have; and the blessings we are receiving!
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.
The U S Constitution says, “No State shall make any Thing but gold and silver Coin a Tender in Payment of Debts;
Hillary supporters are threatening people if they report on the many negative truths about “that woman” Hillary Clinton! Apparently they listed all of the words that cannot be used to describe her, even when they are true! Reading the list of “No, Nos” published in The New York Times” I noticed a glaring omission that will suffice by wrapping all the “No,No” words into one, simple, easily understood four letter word: LIAR!
In Case You Forgot!!!!
Should you pass this on? My recommendation is that you
Do it now…..or you can wait until she is the PRESIDENT!!
America made a bad mistake in 2008! (Fool me once, shame on me, but we were conned.)
America made an absolute HORRENDOUS mistake in 2012! (Fool me twice, shame on me!) We knew better!
No democrat can fix it! Only one Republican can undo the messes made over the past 6 years:
RUN BEN, RUN!
“I want people to understand that we, the American people, are not each others enemies. The real enemies are those people who are trying to divide us into every little possible group.”
“As his support has grown across the country, he has found out that political enemies don’t care much about honesty or truth-telling. Rather, anyone with a platform can say anything he wishes in an effort to discredit a candidate. The candidate must then work to earn voters’ trust again in the face of lies.”
Bill:Obama is not destroying America. It’s millions of uninformed citizens who have either voted against their own best interests, or not voted at all. Fear & hatred do not a democracy make. Monarchy & communism have failed – democracy next? We the peeps better get off our asses.
Lili & Al:True Bill! Democracy fails when the lazy realize they can vote benefits for themselves, using money generated by the productive. The USA is there now! Too bad. I wish it could have lasted a lot longer than 239 years! I’m sorry for our kids, but guess we had our great life!
Lili & Al:Regarding “Obama is not destroying America” maybe you read the same article from Europe-I can only paraphrase it: ‘The USA will be able to repair the damage done by Obama if he leaves office on schedule. However, can the USA stand so many gullible (deceived) people that voted for him twice?’
Lili & Al: One last thought: Lili came from communist Yugoslavia, which was the least autocratic of the commie countries. True, her family had to use trickery to escape, but it was not as hostile to the West as Russia & E Germany, etc.. Despite it’s “Compassionate Communism” her experiences growing up in Serbia were very similar to her observations in Obama’s America. I have no hate or fear towards the (?progressive/regressive?) people that gave us Barry O, or towards Barry O and his cabal (or should I say Junta) either! I’ve had 50 borrowed years that God allowed me to have, filled with joy, pleasure, service and love! Any regrets I have are for the future generations of America! Too bad they don’t have any idea what they are in for! If they did they would heed your advice, “We the peeps better get off our asses.”
Please note: ALL OF THE SPONSORS FOR THIS BILL ARE DEMOCRAT OBAMA KOOL-AID DRINKERS EXCEPT ONE!
The government is going to seize retirement accounts!
The National Deficit, along with the lack of demand for Treasury Bonds, leaves the
government with no other option! And what you don’t know can hurt you!
Goldworth Financial first uncovered the early blueprint of our government’s plot to seize retirement accounts in early 2009. Since that time, we have come up with 9 Basic Questions that people have about this issue:
1. Who’s behind the plot to confiscate retirement accounts?
The government takeover of private retirement accounts is a concept first drawn up by Teresa Ghilarducci, who was funded by the White House, the Ford Foundation, and the Rockefeller Foundation. President Obama’s 2008 presidential run proposed the “Automatic IRA,” which has now evolved into Ghilarducci’s “Guarantee Retirement Accounts (GRA‘s)” concept.
2. Why does the Government want to seize Private Retirement accounts? They need it! China and other buyers of US Treasury (our debt) Bonds have stopped buying. The Federal Reserve reports that it is now forced to fill China’s role, and is buying over 61% of our Treasury Bonds.
3. Have there been any public hearings? If so, who’s involved?
There have been numerous hearings between the Internal Revenue Service (IRS) and the Labor and Treasury Departments. The topic discussed is known as the “Lifetime Income Option-Annuity Income Stream.” Here is the role that each is playing:
The role of the Labor Department-To draw up the guidelines for the Labor (workers) force to direct their pay into Guaranteed Retirement Accounts (GRA’s).
The role of the Internal Revenue Service
To write the laws that will tax/penalize you, if you don’t comply.
The role of the Treasury Department- They have Treasury Bonds/U.S. Debt they need to sell!
4. What workers’ unions are in favor of Nationalized Retirement Accounts?
Believe it or not, the SEIC, CIO & AFL are all in favor! The proposal for this is being discussed as “Re-Imagining pensions.” These workers’ unions are all in favor of “Universal Secure and Adequate (USA)” retirement for all.
John Adler, the Retirement Security Campaign Director of the SEIU, said: “We really don’t favor individual accounts as the way to go.” He went on to say: “Instead, we favor a pooled investment approach.”
John Adler also mentioned Teresa Ghirladucci’s Guarantee Retirement Accounts (GRA). Adler said, “Ghirladucci’s recent proposal of state-sponsored plans is worthy of consideration.”
5. Okay, so unions are in favor of de-privatizing retirement accounts. But government can’t just take our money, can they? Yes! Unfortunately, they can! Here’s a recent snapshot of recent headlines in leading newspapers:
May 16th, 2011-Washington Post reported: “Treasury to Tap Pensions to Fund Government.”
January 17th, 2012-Reuters reported: “The Treasury Dips Further into Pension to Avoid Debt Limit.”
April 12 th, 2012-NY Post reported: “Feds Eye Retirement-Fund Tax to Cut $16 Trillion-plus Deficit”
And of course – August 16th, 2001–CNN reported : “Government Dipping into Social Security.”
If Government “borrows” money they have NO Intention of paying back, wouldn’t you call that stealing/confiscation?
6. Is Obama involved in the plot to seize retirement accounts, and if so, how will they do it?
Proof can be found in the Obama Administration’s 256-page FY 2013 Budget Proposal, the revival of his 2008 presidential run’s “Automatic IRA.” It has now evolved into two proposals: Secure Choice Pension and Government Retirement Accounts (GRA’s).
Some of the proposed “features” are:
Government will automatically deduct 5%-6% out of your earnings. Those funds will be deposited into a pooled GRA.
The current tax deduction will be eliminated, and replaced with a tax credit.
Instead of receiving a tax refund check, part or ALL will automatically be placed into a pooled GRA.
Worker’s un-used vacation pay will automatically be converted to income, which will be deposited into a pooled GRA.
The funds in your current retirement account will be converted to “longevity annuities,” which typically don’t start making income payments until the investor is well into retirement, 82-85 years old.
Guaranteed Retirement Accounts (GRA’s) will be administered by the Social Security Administration.
Much like S.S. Accounts, the uncollected equity will become the property of the Government, once the individual dies.
7.Okay, Government will turn my Retirement Account into a GRA, which will function as “longevity annuities.” But what’s in the annuity, and what kind of returns will I get?
According to Teresa Ghirladucci, the originator of GRA’s, the estimated return on your money will be 3%. It will NOT keep up with government-reported inflation, let alone TRUE/REAL Inflation.
The Government-run annuity will contain U.S. Treasury Bonds, Treasury Notes and Treasury Bills- everything China no longer buys.
The Treasury Department is so desperate to find new buyers, they recently announced that “taxpayers will now have another savings option-the ability to use their refunds to purchase U.S Savings Bonds without having to open an account with the Treasury; even ifthe tax payer doesn’t have a bank account.”
Citigroup analyst Hans Lorenzen said: “U.S regulators are essentially forcing banks to buy up government debt-While that helps Government Issue more and more debt, the strategy could ultimately explode if the government isn’t able to make the bond payment, leaving the holders of the bonds with toxic debt.”
Yes, through GRA’s, you will be holding our government’s toxic debt!

Other related proposed legislation:
SB1234, introduced by California Congressman Kevin De Leon. It’s known as the “Golden State Retirement Trust.” This bill is based on GRA’s.
On May 6, 2012, Lauren Schmitz, a research analyst at the Barnard L Schwartz Center for Economic Analyst (SCEPA), introduced HB5337. SCEPA is the very same Institution where Teresa Ghularducci originated the GRA concept. This Connecticut Bill is also based on GRA’s.
9. I don’t like the idea of GRA’s, so can I just pay the early withdrawal penalty and tax, and pull everything out of my retirement account?
No! The Government has already thought of that. On May 18, 2011, Herb Kohl (D-WI) and Mike Enzi (R-WY) introduced “S1020-Saving Enhancement by Alleviating Leakage in 401k Savings Accounts, “AKA: Seal Savings Accounts. This bill will restrict you from accessing your money. In fact, you won’t even be able to borrow from it.
Food for thought – When a country is neck-deep in debt, and has nobody to borrow from, recent history has shown us that indebted Governments steal their citizens’ wealth! Countries such as Belgium, Poland, Hungary, France, Argentina, Bolivia and Ireland have already seized private retirement accounts.
If you have read Goldworth Financial’s previous reporting on the De-Privatization & Seizure of Retirement Accounts, WHY are you waiting for the OFFICIAL government announcement: “To Protect You and for the Good of Our Country, we are Nationalizing Private retirement accounts”?By then, it will be too late to do anything about it!
It’s the old “Frog in a Boiling Pot of Water” they turn up the heat, in stages.
IF the Supreme Court’s ruling on Obamacare didn’t wake you, it should! The ruling will simply be used as case law, when government “herds” everyone into Nationalized Retirement Accounts.
You have worked Long and Hard for your money. Taxes will take a portion, inflation will take a portion… Don’t Allow Government to Take the Rest! Government money is Only a Note, a government promise; tangible Gold & Silver are Constitutional Money.
Much like Eminent Domain, most assets can be “Taken-Over” by the government.
