9m – Bank for International Settlements in Switzerland, founded in 1930, as a bank for central bankers, with around 60 countries as members
15m – Money is supposed to primarily serve as a medium of exchange between producers
15m – Money is actually functioning primarily as a medium of power
18m – 1933 gold confiscation, 1934 silver confiscation, 40% backing by gold, confiscated gold may have been pledged to international interests

40m – Over 95% of money today is numbers in a computer

41m – Compound interest, compounding the debt exponentially, mathematically doomed to fail, because producers cannot exponentially increase their value to debtors in the long-run
42m – Banks can charge a fee instead of charging usury
43m – Need to cut back unsustainable federal programs, because tax revenues don’t match up with spending obligations
49m – Estimated $16 trillion given to banks by TARP bailout, and $1 trillion went to European banks alone at the hands of the so-called United States Federal Reserve
50m – Out of around 190 countries in the world, only around 30-40 countries had no net debt, or there was no information for them

The Winged Lion Awards are in honour of the ‘Winged Lion’ – which is the historical symbol of usuryfree money. The Winged Lion Awards are presented to the winners from the nominated usuryfree creatives on behalf of the UsuryFree Network during the Annual UsuryFree Week scheduled from November 13th, until November 19th, each year.

Nominations are currently open for the following 15 categories – ideas for additional categories are welcomed:

Here are the top three categories. See the announcement for the other 12 categories.

1. A community that has launched new paper notes of usuryfree community currency during the current year. This community must have done something unique for their launch of paper notes of usuryfree community currency. Samples of the paper notes and details of this unique activity must be submitted with the nomination.

Anthony MigchelsI conducted a special interview with Anthony Migchels of Real Currencies on economics in National Socialist Germany, based on his popular September 16 article, Hitler’s Finances and the Myth of Nazi anti-Usury Activism, on October 20, 2013. Here is the audio.

We discussed:

  • mortgages only up to a maximum of 25% usury-free on the principal
  • the myth of Hitler’s anti-usury efforts
  • German consumers still heavily indebted with usury
  • internal constraints on Hitler, Hitler was anti-usury in his rhetoric before coming to power, different afterwards
  • Hitler as a statist on steroids
  • the official Nazi monetary policy was to serve the state and not the people
  • Confederate Greybacks issued to pay for war that overwhelmingly benefited the <10% minority of slaveholders
  • importance of decentralization of the money supply, no need for any usury (simple or compound interest) on money
  • beware of centralizing or half-measure monetary “reforms”

My nominee for the 2013 Winged Lion Awards is George Whitehurst-Berry, and he had the show Crash! Are You Ready? on the largest alternative network, GCN, from 2007 until 2012, and he’s now broadcasting on the same network as I am, with the shows the Financial News Network and Sedona Dreams.

He had the second highest online listenership of nearly 40 shows on the network, starting in 2008, and he was the one who inspired Wayne Walton into his activism, from listening to his shows about successful government-issued currencies and how the banksters intentionally sabotaged them, reading from books he collected that were written in the 1800s and early 1900s, that couldn’t easily be found at the time.

He also brought to light the little known fact about the Bank of Venice, whose paper documents always circulated at at least a 20% premium above gold, and even went up to 40% above gold, until they were regulated to be less than that value. It also never had any major panics, and contrary to G. Edward Griffin’s false claim about it failing, it only terminated due to an external invasion by Napoleon.

He also gave me the chance to appear as a guest several times, and guest host many times, and provided me with my first radio appearance ever, back on October 1, 2008.

The Winged Lion Awards will be awarded during this year’s 9th annual UsuryFree week from November 13 to 18.
