Here’s monetary reformer Bill Still on an important monetary court case victory in Canada by COMER (the Committee for Monetary and Economic Reform), concerning the power of the federal and provincial governments to borrow money from the Bank of Canada interest-free (or effectively interest-free, by the federal government receiving the Bank’s profits).

My comment:

Great news, indeed, and very important, since cases like this are usually thrown out due to standing issues, with the bogus claim by judges that the petitioners aren’t eligible to have their case heard due to reasons like not being directly affected, etc.

And unlike a direct constitutional challenge, they are actually pointing to a statute, which is very important, since the court can’t say that it’s just the petitioners’ interpretation of the constitution, but it’s right there as active law because unfortunately these judges and lawyers have been trained to treat statutes more seriously than plain-meaning interpretations of the Constitution itself.

What I do wonder is how they can force the government to get loans from the Bank of Canada, and also how they can be made interest-free, since the provision just mentions loans, but not the interest rate, and of course the banksters will not want them to be interest-free.

But there is a nice way that the loans become effectively interest-free if the federal government does the borrowing, since the government is the sole shareholder of the Bank, and all profits return to the government.

As announced on Bill Still’s Still Report, Ellen Brown will be running for the position of Treasurer in California.

The good news is that the position is elected by the people, instead of being appointed by the legislature or any executive.

The Treasurer has a $75 billion investment fund, where some funds could be moved into a public bank.

Even if she doesn’t get elected, from my experience of following politics closely for over two decades, putting her name on the ballot raises awareness and gives her more attention and credibility in a subsequent election when there is more demand for positive change.

Instead of just sitting around and complaining or instilling people with hopelessness, Ellen Brown is directly engaging the public through the political process.

Tom WoodsFrom Tom Woods’ April 15, 2013 article, The Greenbackers’ Fake Quote Industry, picked up by LewRockwell.com the following day, I made the following comments, to which Woods responded to:

Bill Still tried to get fake quotations removed from his documentary, The Money Masters, but the copyright holder wouldn’t allow it, for reasons we can only surmise. In 2011, he created this page dedicated to exposing false monetary quotations (http://s6.zetaboards.com/Bill_Still_Reforum/topic/1177385/1/) so it’s good to see that you’ve joined forces with a Greenbacker in the interests of intellectual honesty, Tom.

To which Woods responded:

I happily concede that this speaks well of Bill Still.

Then, I commented:

In 2009, I exposed the fake Jefferson quote you cited above (https://fauxcapitalist.com/2009/10/28/what-thomas-jefferson-said-about-private-banks/) after hearing it so many times and deciding to do my own research and conceding that it must be fake if the word “deflation” wasn’t even used in Jefferson’s time.

To which he responded:

Great. Now if only you could get the 167,000 people who keep propagating the fakes to visit your page, we’d be getting somewhere.

Then, I wrote:

Tom, while fake quotations are often cited by Greenbackers, there are also fake quotations cited by Austrian School adherents, such as this fake Aristotle quotation: “In effect, there is nothing inherently wrong with fiat money, provided we get perfect authority and god-like intelligence for kings.“ We can thank James Dines for propagating that one. I emailed him asking for his source, and he never responded.

To which he responded:

I have never heard of James Dines, and I cannot imagine any serious Austrian falling for such an obvious fake. With the Greenbackers, fake quotations are systematic and everywhere.
