This article fails to state a couple of very important facts which make the 1930's & 1970's comparisons moot.
1. "This did not happen in the 1930s"
Uh, no, maybe it did not... the government mints continued to supply gold for coinage. However, what did happen in 1933 was FDR's unprecidented and
highly unconstitutional government mandated confiscation of all privately held gold. www.the-privateer.com...
said before and will continue to say, no act (including the patriot act) by any sitting president since Abraham Lincoln basically voided states'
rights by declaring war to prevent seccession of the Southern states has been as gross a violation of the United States Constitution as FDR's gold
confiscation (alongside other aspects of his "New Deal.") The man was truly one of the worst enemies to our freedom & our Constitutional rights
EVER in this nation's history and many have actually been brainwashed into honoring
him as if he was one of our finest presidents.
2. "This did not happen in the 1970's"
Of course the government didn't hoard gold in the 70's, in 1971 Richard Millhouse Nixon made an executive decision far, far stupider than anything
he's currently villified over concerning Watergate or his alleged racism. When Dick Nixon removed the US Dollar from the gold standard, it
immediately become a fiat currency, essentially as worthless as the powers that be decide it to be (or as valuable, depending on the PTB's wishes)
and setting the stage for the United States to suffer the cyclical banking crisises, inflationary recessions, and repeated financial molestation of
the international commodity markets we've all come to live under the ever looming threats of.
Thanks to FDR, a man could no longer walk into a federal bank, present a $100 bill, and demand $100 worth of gold bullion in exchange for his piece of
paper. He could still, however, at least claim
his piece of paper has legitimate worth as, even though he could not physically obtain it from
the treasury, at least it was known that there was $100 worth of gold sitting in a vault supporting the bill's value. Thanks to Nixon, the same man
now held a piece of paper with nothing whatsoever backing it. One day it could be used to purchase $100 worth of goods or services, the next day it
could be worthless and only good as an emergency handkerchief to blow his nose with.
What's happening now, who knows? I'm inclined to believe it's part of a third phase of this process which will involve transitioning the US to a
global currency unit. I don't actually believe we'll ever see the "Amero" come to pass, though. I actually think it's more likely that we will
one day switch to the Euro. If we ever do see the Amero, it will mean that we're still in a transitional period between a sovergn monetary system
and a global curreny unit, as I do not believe at all that anything short of one currency unit for the entire world is the ultimate goal here. Even
if we do see the Amero, the Euro, the Africo, etc, it still doesn't reach the ultimate destination of a unified monetary system. The thing that
doesn't fit about this is that I don't believe for a moment that any globalized monetary system will be backed by gold, so this apparent hoarding of
gold by the treasury can't be in preparation of any new currency system.
Who knows? Maybe it's just a sign that Nabiru is really going to pass near us in 4 years and the Annunaki are planning to return and collect more
gold to spray into their atmosphere to protect themselves from global warming? I'm sure they still have some strong ties with the treasury
department... (That was a joke, by the way. It's helpfull to stay light hearted and a little mirthfullness never hurts.)
