English: Canadian Flag

Question 5 of the Schedule 1 Application for a Temporary Resident Visa Made Outside of Canada states:

5 Membership or association with organizations

Are you, or have you ever been a member or associated with any political party, or other group or organization which has engaged in or advocated violence as a means to achieving a religious or political objective, or which has been associated with criminal activity at any time?

The irony is that Canada itself, through its governments, is associated with an organization that has engaged in violence to achieve a political objective, with the particular examples of NATO’s illegal attack on Yugoslavia in 1999 and on Libya in 2011.

The attack on Yugoslavia took place long before I had a public voice, but I had one when the Libyan bombings took place, and I used it on May 30, 2011 to write, Canada’s appalling participation in the bombing of Libya.

History, it is said, is indeed written by the victors, and hence the selective designation of who isn’t allowed to be in Canada.

“The World’s Most Listened to Late Night Talk Show”, Coast to Coast AM, with its estimated 3 million weekly listeners, has recently presented the case for sovereign, debt-free currency, over the gold standard.

On May 23, 2010, Joseph P. Farrell, author of Babylon’s Banksters, presented his case. From the show description:

One is a closed system, based on scarce resources, energy or money. The other is an open system, in which energy is in abundant supply, “and where money in turn reflects this by being a creation of the state, and therefore a debt-free instrument of exchange,” he detailed.

Any bank including the Federal Reserve can never issue interest, they can only lend money into circulation, so that there’s never enough money to pay the interest on the principle, he continued. A state, however, can issue debt-free money yet past US Presidents such as Lincoln, Garfield, and Kennedy all ended up assassinated after they tried to change the banking system, Farrell pointed out.

Then, on June 28, investigative journalist Jim Marrs, author of Rule by Secrecy and The Rise of the Fourth Reich, presented his case. From the show description:

He referred to the US as a “zombie nation” because citizens and the country itself are trillions of dollars in debt. JFK ended up dead not longer after he issued $4.2 billion in currency that was printed by the Treasury instead of the Federal Reserve, which in reality is a group of 12 banks that charge interest, he noted.

Read how the illegal Federal Reserve lies about United States Notes (Lincoln Greenbacks), and about private central bank misinformation.

In response to my article, “Gold confiscation: It depends on what gold, and how much,” someone posted a link to this video, by Mike Maloney of GoldSilver.com.

In it, Maloney makes one false statement, and one misleading one.

1) “They took it and they put it all in one place owned by the government, so it was nationalized.”
False. It was given to the illegal privately owned Federal Reserve banking cartel.

2) He says that people were compensated for the gold that was taken from them, which is true, and I mentioned that in my article. However, it was taken at the figurative point of a gun at $20.67, only for the price to be unilaterally raised half a year later to $35 an ounce. I argue that’s a violation of the 5th amendment protection of “just compensation” for the taking of private property, on two fronts. 1) A 60% unilateral increase in half a year isn’t just and 2) It wasn’t taken for public use, but for use by the illegal privately owned Federal Reserve banking cartel.

Additionally, he claims that the there was no confiscation of gold, saying that confiscate means to take without compensation.

From Merriam-Webster’s Online dictionary, confiscation is defined with the entry confiscate, as:

1. to seize as forfeited to the public treasury
2. to seize or as if by authority

Definition 1 doesn’t apply in this case, since the gold had to be turned over the illegal privately owned Federal Reserve banking cartel, and not the public treasury.

Definition 2 applies, and mentions nothing about it being seized without compensation. Indeed, the gold was seized, by the figurative barrel of a gun, backed by criminal penalties, as outlined in FDR’s Executive Order 6102.

Jim Cramer, former hedge fund manager and TV personality, blithely explains how the market is manipulated, including illegal activities, by telling us what he did and would do as a hedge fund manager.

Here are some of his most revealing statements (emphasis mine):

“You know, a lot of times when I was short at my hedge fund and I was positioned short, meaning I needed it down, I would create a level of activity beforehand that could drive the futures. It doesn’t take much money. Or if I were long and I would want to make things a little bit rosy, I would go in and take a bunch of stocks and make sure they’re higher and maybe commit $5 million in capital to do it and I could affect it. What you’re seeing now is probably a bigger market now. Maybe you need $10 million in capital to knock the stuff down, but it’s a fun game and it’s a lucrative game.

“I’m gonna boost the futures and then when the real sellers come in, the real market comes in, they’re going to knock it down, it’s going to create a negative view. That’s a strategy very worth doing when you’re valuing on a day-to-day basis. I would encourage anyone in the hedge fund game to do it, because it’s legal, it’s a very quick way to make money, and very satisfying. By the way, no one else in the world would ever admit that, but I couldn’t care. I’m not gonna say it on TV.

“When you get a Research In Motion, it’s really important to use a lot of your firepower to knock that down, because it’s the folcrum of the market today. So I mean, let’s say I were short. What I’d do is I’d hit a lot of guys with RIM. You can’t foment, you can’t create yourself, an impression that a stock’s down. But you do it anyway, because the SEC doesn’t understand it. That’s the only sense I would say it’s illegal.”

“When your company’s in a survival mode, it’s really important to defeat Research in Motion and get the Pisanis of the world and the people talking about it as if there’s something wrong with RIM. Then you would call The Journal and you get the bozo reporter on Research in Motion and you would feed that Palm’s got a killer that it’s going to give away. These are all the things you must do on a day like today, and if you’re not doing it, maybe you shouldn’t be in the game.”

“Apple’s very important to spread the rumor that both Verizon and AT&T have decided they don’t like the phone. That’s a very easy one to do. You also want to spread the rumor that it’s not going to be ready for Macworld. And this is very easy, because the people who write about Apple want that story. And you can claim that it’s credible because you spoke to someone at Apple, because Apple’s not going to issue a statement. It’s really an ideal short.”

“What’s important when you’re in that hedge fund mode is to not do anything remotely truthful, because the truth is so against your view, and it’s important to create a new truth to develop a fiction.

“The great thing about the market is it has absolutely nothing to do with the actual stocks.”

Dr. Ravi Batra, progressive economist and professor of economics at SMU, stated his support for a partial gold-backed currency as a replacement for the U.S. dollar.

On April 30, 2010, on the Thom Hartmann show, he stated at 57:30:

I don’t know if we will ever have one world currency in my lifetime, but currency should be backed up, partially at least, by gold, so that nobody can just inflate currency to fix the problem and leave workers dry. Wages have been stagnant at the same time, so we need to have some backing for the currency as well, and that should be gold.

The U.S. dollar was on a full gold standard until 1933, when most domestic gold was confiscated and transferred not to the U.S. Treasury, but the illegal Federal Reserve. After the confiscation, the price was raised from $20.67 USD to $35 an ounce. From then until August 15, 1971, the U.S. was on a partial gold standard, with foreign currency directly convertible into gold at the rate of $35 an ounce. Since then, gold has been able to freely float, and has hit all time highs since the economic turbulence of 2008, now over $1200 an ounce.

The call for a return to a gold-backed currency truly crosses the political divide, with a progressive economist singing the praises of a gold standard along with proponents of the libertarian Austrian School of Economics.

The Federal Reserve is the privately-owned central bank of the United States since 1913, that issues money into the economy as a debt with interest payable to them, and regulates the value thereof through various means.

From usconstitution.net:

“Section 8 – Powers of Congress”
“To coin Money, regulate the Value thereof, and of foreign Coin, and fix the Standard of Weights and Measures;”

From the above, we see that Congress has the sole power to regulate the value of coined money. Since the Federal Reserve is an institution that regulates the value of coined and uncoined money through various means, yet isn’t Congress itself, it and its activities are therefore illegal.

More in-depth analysis will follow in future postings that will serve to only strengthen the case against the Federal Reserve.
