I ran across this thread a short time ago. Haven't been able to find very many sources but still digging. God help us if it's true. I think most will not give it up without a serious fight.

Like hell they will.

I think folks are just about fed up with Washington telling us what we can own and what we can't.

Might just have to get back in to mining a bit to keep things interesting.

Doesn't really surprise me,however I think it will surprise those attempting to confiscate the gold, that they're mostly going to have lead and copper coming at them at a high rate of speed.

I am always weary of the big boom on buying precious metals in the past several years, have my reservations about 'why' the big push, but it does make sense that they would want us to invest in physical so that when the dollar crashes they can confiscate all the metals for themselves.

Good point Antar
well, we have the first time they did confiscation as a tip on what to expect...
I suspect that there will be a time to trade the gold and silver for things more usefull at the time...
like lead and beans....

I think it is time to be heads up in the corners as we say in hockey...

Yes, when things get ready to crash this so-called government is going to take away all your silver and gold your putting away right now. It's best you buy seed, non Gm seed.Buy things you can eat and grow. You say "I will hid my gold" no you want either if the penalty is many years in prison for the possession of it. No one will take it for barter this way. You'll just have a heavy bunch of metal to tote around every where you go...get something you can KEEP and use for yourself and your neighbor....You want make it alone and I don't care, nor do they, how many guns you have......It's all a video game to them....You'll see, very, very soon now....Good Luck....

Aren't you suppose to be the "home and the land of the free ?"

I don't think so

What they will do, ARE doing, is they will just make giving up your gold and silver the only way to get the shelter food and medicine you need to combat the situations they are creating..
Most will give over willingly and in so doing will sign over their death warrants.
no reason to keep a body alive, then they won't

I doubt there will be any shooting unless that is what they want
They have massive predictive computer systems like "google" (etc) to control the situations....


only way will be not to give in
an once of prevention...

HI DANBONES!!! Yep, I know something finally feels fishy to me, as if it is really falling into place for the plan. I am doing all I can to remain alert, awake and aware, but yes something wicked is on the horizon.

I hate to shoot a theory down that is Anti Government Capitalism etc but I really don't see them confinscating any Gold anytime soon. They need us. We are their slaves and they don't want to piss us off in record numbers for fear what happened in Egypt could happen here. Relax People!

I truly don't see any confinscation happening, it is simply not enforceable, most people didn't back in 33 and most will not now.
Now for the video, 100k an ounce? Hmmmm me smells a rat, who is pushing what?
Maybe the slaves are not buying enough gold and the masters need to push us into it.
I have always stood firm on the idea gold is the rich mans tool against the poor man, i don't have any, well other than a ring on my finger, and that will come at a dear price were anyone attempt to take that.
Now if gold is made illegal here in the US and you can't spend it, who is to stop someone from carrying it across to another counry?
A few ounces would go down quite smoothly and come out just as shiny on the other side, and no health side effects either.
Gold mule for hire!!
Don't buy gold, pay your mortgage off, buy useable items, food livestock, seed, Etc. show them who is truly boss, as you do not need their greedy system.
Just take your ball and go home.

I think this entire thread is skeptical.... The orders in the Wikipedia link were revoked so no longer are in affect.

I agree with this statement. This video sums it up.

Even if the SCOTUS said "Yes" to such an illegal, and fundamentally unconstitutional move (gold and silver being held as commodities and not used as legal tender as such) I've got a .40 judge and several other "Supremes" that would clearly say "Hell NO".

The Bad News - Yes, this Executive Order is true.

The Good News - It's from 1933. Nothing to worry about, even if it did happen before, very unlikely it could be enforced in this day and age.
