In light of this Assault on our Financial Freedom

In light of this Assault on our Financial Freedom


November 20, 2007 – The FBI raided the headquarters of Liberty Dollar last week.  Liberty Dollar maintains that it has done nothing illegal and plans to fight the government to the end.  The Liberty Dollar is a bartering tool backed by precious metal.  Holders of Liberty Dollars prefer holding these dollars because each is backed by gold or silver. Since a Federal Reserve note is backed by nothing other than the rapidly dwindling faith in its purchasing power, a Liberty Dollar is worth more, much more, than the worth less debt notes issued by the less than desirable banking cartel that is the Federal Reserve.  The actual value of a Federal Reserve debt note – regardless of denomination printed on its face, is approximately 3 cents.  That is the cost of printing a debt note.  The cost of holding debt notes is much more expensive.  Think about it. 


The government maintains that the precious metals and currency holdings seized during the Liberty Dollar raid are subject to forfeiture to the United States under 18 U.S.C. 982 because it is property allegedly involved in, or traceable to, money laundering, in violation of 18 U.S.C. 1956 and 1957; under 18 U.S.C. at 982 because it is allegedly traceable to, gross receipts and proceeds obtained, directly or indirectly, as a result of alleged mail fraud, in violation of 18 U.S.C. 1341, and alleged wire fraud, in violation of 18 U.S.C. 1343. 


So who are the real criminals?  The federal raid on the Liberty Dollar headquarters in Evansville, Indiana was the result of an elaborate undercover operation in which FBI traitors posed as patriotic Americans that sought to get involved with a free market enterprise that was creating sound currency backed by something more than the hopes and dreams of the ruling elite and banking cartel to confiscate the wealth of the middleclass through the hidden tax of inflation. 


Nobody using Liberty Dollars believed that the silver medallions and silver certificates were legal tender for all debts, public and private.  Holders and users of Liberty Dollars sought instead to have a hedge against inflation created by the Federal Reserve when it creates money out of thin air – backed by nothing.  The Liberty Dollar was not created to be legal tender – it was created to provide honest, sound money – something the Federal Reserve does not provide!


Meanwhile, the value of the worthless paper in America’s wallet continues to be worth less.  Most of the world seeks to dump the dollar because of its ever-increasing worthlessness.  It’s just a bad investment to be holding dollars these days thanks to the Federal Reserve.  Countries that aim to harm the United States seek to encourage oil-rich nations to dump the U.S. dollar in favor of other currencies such as the Euro.  Saudi Arabian foreign minister Prince Saud Al-Faisal just last week acknowledged that the mere mention of OPEC studying the issue of the U.S. dollar, as its value continues to find new record lows could cause a ripple effect that collapses the U.S. economy.  When the Asian banks hint of diversifying away from dollars – Wall Street suffers record-breaking losses.  Is this the sign of a sound monetary policy and a secure currency?  I think not. 


How is this possible?  How can foreign countries collapse our economy by refusing the U.S. dollar?  Why would they do this anyhow?  For most of these nations, it’s just business.  Nobody wants to be stuck holding a plummeting stock.  Just like on the stock market, a massive sell-off can create catastrophic losses for those that do not get out on time.  Wise investors and the crafty benefactors of the Federal Reserve System are already out of U.S. dollars.  They dumped the dollar long ago.  How about you?  As investors with the Liberty Dollar have just learned – getting out isn’t as easy for everyday people.  The FBI has just seized personal savings, investments, with no return in sight.  The people can only take so much.  Sooner or later, Americans are going to lock and load.  Know your targets!


The problem today isn’t with organizations such as Liberty Dollar.  The problem is with the U.S. Congress and the Federal Reserve.  The government didn’t raid and steal the assets of Liberty Dollar because the organization was engaged in real criminal activity.  It raided and stole the assets of those involved and invested in the organization because it was a threat to the worthless Federal Reserve debt system and the goal of maintaining a debtor nation.  Americans carry more debt and have less savings than at any other time in our nation’s history.  The people are broke, and so is the U.S. government.  Collectively, we are drowning in debt thanks to the criminal monetary policy of the Federal Reserve.


It was because the people at Liberty Dollar were not selling and promoting collateralized debt obligations that it got raided and robbed by the real criminals – the federal government.  It is utterly amazing that honest money is illegal in these United States, and dishonest money is legal and protected by the U.S. Congress that passes the bogus laws that the FBI stretched and manipulated to treasonously oppress the rights of the people to barter with gold, silver, and certificates to their liking - free from banking cartel intrusion and control. 

The raid of Liberty Dollar was grand theft committed by the federal government to the tune of $21,000,000.00!  It is a travesty and injustice that the public must take the time to fully comprehend.  

If you are not familiar with the history of the Federal Reserve, I highly recommend that you purchase the book – The Creature from Jekyll Island.
