He states, without reference, that she is “a Greenbacker by confession.“
It’s ironic that North got on his high horse and claimed to have discredited her book, Web of Debt, by pointing to errors in it, yet failed to do research into his own bogus claim that she is a Greenbacker.
The Greenback movement refers to those who supported the issuance of interest-free paper money at the federal level during the Civil War era and in the subsequent years of the late 19th century.
Had North done even the most basic amount of research — which he claims Brown failed to do regarding some of her claims — he would’ve come across her proposal (on page 455) for:
A bill to update the Constitutional provision that “Congress shall have the power to coin money” so that it reads, “Congress shall have the power to create the national currency in all its forms, including not only coins and paper dollars but the nation’s credit issued as commercial loans.”
Calling for a constitutional amendment to make Greenbacks constitutional means that Ellen Brown is not a Greenbacker, since she is saying that the Greenbacks that were issued at the time were unconstitutional, and would be unconstitutional if issued today, until an amendment is passed.
