Tennessee Legal Tender Law Would Treat Gold and Silver as Money; Foundation to Undermine the Federal Reserve

NASHVILLE, Tenn. (Feb. 11, 2019) – Bills introduced in the Tennessee legislature would define gold and silver specie as legal tender and eliminate sales taxes levied on it. Passage of these bills would pave the way for Tennessee residents to use gold and silver in everyday transactions, a foundational step for the people to undermine the Federal Reserve’s monopoly on money.

Sen. Steve Southerland (R-Morristown) introduced Senate Bill 978 (SB978) on Feb. 6. Rep. Rick Eldridge (R-Morristown) introduced the House companion bill (HB1323) the same day. Titled the Tennessee Legal Tender Act, the legislation would make gold and silver legal tender in the state, meaning it would be recognized as a medium of exchange for the payment of debts and taxes. Practically speaking, gold and silver specie would be treated as money, putting it on par with Federal Reserve notes in Tennessee.

Specie legal tender would be defined as:

(1) Specie coin issued by the United States government at any time; and
(2) Any other specie that a court of competent jurisdiction, by final and unappealable order, rules to be within state authority to make or designate as legal tender.

By allowing the court to designate additional specie to be used as legal tender, Tennessee could free its citizens from potential supply constraints imposed by the use of only United States minted gold and silver coin. More importantly, the people of the state of Tennessee would be able to define what specie is considered constitutional tender, further distancing themselves from potential control of their competing currency by Washington D.C.

SB978/HB1323 would also repeal the state sales tax on gold or silver specie.

IN PRACTICE

With the passage of SB978/HB1323, Tennesse would take a step toward treating gold and silver specie as money instead of a commodity. As Sound Money Defense League Policy Director Jp Cortez testified during a committee hearing on a similar bill in Wyoming last year, charging taxes on money itself is beyond the pale.

“In effect, states that collect taxes on purchases of precious metals are inherently saying gold and silver are not money at all.”

Imagine if you asked a grocery clerk to break a $5 bill and he charged you a 35 cent tax. Silly, right? After all, you were only exchanging one form of money for another. But that’s essentially what Tennessee’s sales tax on gold and silver bullion does. By removing the sales tax on the exchange of gold and silver, Tennessee would treat specie as money instead of a commodity. This represents a small step toward reestablishing gold and silver as legal tender and breaking down the Fed’s monopoly on money.

We ought not to tax money – and that’s a good idea. It makes no sense to tax money,” former U.S. Rep. Ron Paul said during testimony in support an Arizona bill that repealed capital gains taxes on gold and silver in that state. “Paper is not money, it’s fraud,” he continued.

The proposed law’s impact would go beyond mere tax policy. During an event after his Senate committee testimony, Paul pointed out that it’s really about the size and scope of government.

“If you’re for less government, you want sound money. The people who want big government, they don’t want sound money. They want to deceive you and commit fraud. They want to print the money. They want a monopoly. They want to get you conditioned, as our schools have conditioned us, to the point where deficits don’t matter.”

Practically speaking, officially making gold and silver specie legal tender and eliminating taxes on the sale of gold and silver would crack open the door for people to begin using specie in regular business transactions. This would mark an important small step toward currency competition. If sound money gains a foothold in the marketplace against Federal Reserve notes, the people will be able to choose the time-tested stability of gold and silver over the central bank’s rapidly-depreciating paper currency….

One Minute to Midnight

Late last month, the Bulletin of the Atomic Scientists unveiled its “Doomsday Clock” for the 26th time since its creation in 1947, declaring that the hands on the clock would remain where they had been at the last setting, in 2018. Rachel Bronson, the bulletin’s president, described the environment in which the bulletin assesses the threats faced by the world today (which have expanded beyond nuclear to include climate change and cyber) as the “new abnormal,” and noted that no one should take comfort from the fact that the hands of the clock have not moved.

“This new abnormal,” Bronson wrote in her statement explaining the decision, “is a pernicious and dangerous departure from the time when the United States sought a leadership role in designing and supporting global agreements that advanced a safer and healthier planet. The new abnormal describes a moment in which fact is becoming indistinguishable from fiction, undermining our very abilities to develop and apply solutions to the big problems of our time.”…

Could there be any doubt, given the establishment’s dogged determination to frame russia for the ultra-incriminating DNC email leaks, and its coverup of the the murder of Seth Rich (which was in all likelihood committed by agents of the DNC), not to mention NATO’s years of preparation for a nuclear first strike on russia (for which the american people are ill prepared (unlike the russians and chinese, whose governments value their own citizens) that we would already be at war with russia if hillary had won the 2016 election?   And there’s a good chance that YOU, dear reader, would be among the first casualties.

You don’t have to be a trumpster to be willing to count your blessings.

Russia and China’s refusals to support their own military domination by propping up the petro-dollar after it was mortally wounded in 2008 by the “fed” and its accomplices on wall street, is certainly a sufficient reason for sufficiently evil people to prefer nuclear war to public exposure and prosecution.   War resets everything.   It’s a perfect excuse to shift blame  for economic disaster to foreigners.  Public memories of culpability vanish.   They really have no choice.  And it’s ultra-profitable to boot.  Motive, means and opportunity.

Yes, things really are that bad.   And when the dollar goes south, things will get much worse, especially if the government’s own lengthy preparations for dealing with its manufactured masses of newly destitute americans are carried out.    We are worse than expendable.   We are a liability.

Cyber-Security Experts Release Damning Report: Why The DNC Was Not Hacked By the Russians

Who killed Seth Rich?  http://thoughtcrimeradio.net/?s=%22seth+rich%22

And who wants to go to war with russia and why?

Investigation by cyber-security and intelligence experts William Binney [former NSA technical director] and Larry Johnson

The FBI, CIA and NSA claim that the DNC emails published by WIKILEAKS on July 26, 2016 were obtained via a Russian hack, but more than three years after the alleged “hack” no forensic evidence has been produced to support that claim. In fact, the available forensic evidence contradicts the official account that blames the leak of the DNC emails on a Russian internet “intrusion”. The existing evidence supports an alternative explanation–the files taken from the DNC on between 23 and 25 May 2016 and were copied onto a file storage device, such as a thumb drive.

If the Russians actually had conducted an internet based hack of the DNC computer network then the evidence of such an attack would have been collected and stored by the National Security Agency. The technical systems to accomplish this task have been in place since 2002. The NSA had an opportunity to make it clear that there was irrefutable proof of Russian meddling, particularly with regard to the DNC hack, when it signed on to the January 2017 “Intelligence Community Assessment,” regarding Russian interference in the 2016 Presidential election:

“We also assess Putin and the Russian Government aspired to help President-elect Trump’s election chances when possible by discrediting Secretary Clinton and publicly contrasting her unfavorably to him. All three agencies agree with this judgment. CIA and FBI have high confidence in this judgment; NSA has moderate confidence.”

The phrase, “moderate confidence” is intelligence speak for “we have no hard evidence.” Thanks to the leaks by Edward Snowden, we know with certainty that the NSA had the capability to examine and analyze the DNC emails. NSA routinely “vacuumed up” email traffic transiting the U.S. using robust collection systems (whether or not anyone in the NSA chose to look for this data is another question). If those emails had been hijacked over the internet then NSA also would have been able to track the electronic path they traveled over the internet. This kind of data would allow the NSA to declare without reservation or caveat that the Russians were guilty. The NSA could admit to such a fact in an unclassified assessment without compromising sources and methods. Instead, the NSA only claimed to have moderate confidence in the judgement regarding Russian meddling. If the NSA had hard intelligence to support the judgement the conclusion would have been stated as “full confidence.”…

As global insect population plunges toward total collapse,  corporate media still censors the truth about GMOs and pesticides

(Natural News) For more than a decade, Natural News has been warning the public about the dangers of the use of chemical pesticides and herbicides, and the genetic modification of plants to withstand the onslaught of such chemicals. In return, Natural News – like most members of the independent media – has been vilified, mocked and even censored by the mainstream media. Worse, even generally respected journalists have stubbornly insisted, despite mounting evidence that these chemicals have a profoundly negative effect on human and environmental health, that so-called “conventional” farming methods are totally safe.

Sadly, Big Agri has continued to sell its deadly poisons, and things have now become so bad that even some in the mainstream media have started reporting on the devastating impact these chemicals continue to have on insect populations.

As reported by the U.K.’s Guardian, for example, an alarming study published in the journal Biological Conservation recently has confirmed that the planet’s insects are “hurtling down the path to extinction,” with more than 40 percent of all insect species declining and around a third endangered. The researchers found that there are several contributing factors to these shocking statistics, with the worst culprits being habitat loss caused by intensive agriculture and the use of “agro-chemical pollutants,” i.e. synthetic pesticides and fertilizers. (Related: Even TINY traces of pesticides found to cause infertility in insects, scientists discover.)

Why insects matter

It’s true that creepy crawlies just plain creep a lot of people out, and some of us might wonder why their health and well-being should be of any importance to us. What we might not realize, however, is that these insects are absolutely crucial to human survival because of their important role in pollinating most of the foods eaten by humans….

Petition: Repeal Immunity for Drug Companies Against Vaccine Injuries

To be delivered to President Donald Trump, The United States House of Representatives, The United States Senate

Why should the drug companies be above the law? If vaccines are safe, there would be no need to grant the drug companies immunity. In 1986 Congress gave the drug companies immunity against all lawsuits from vaccine related injuries. The Federal Government is now paying out billions in damages to some parents whose children have been hurt by vaccines. While the drug companies continue to rack up huge profits, most families continue to pay for the damages with their own money.

Physicist’s Letter of Resignation to APS over Global Warming Scam

The following is a letter to the American Physical Society released to the public by Professor Emiritus of physics Hal Lewis of the University of California at Santa Barbara.

Sent: Friday, 08 October 2010 17:19

From: Hal Lewis, University of California, Santa Barbara
To: Curtis G. Callan, Jr., Princeton University, President of the American Physical Society

6 October 2010

Dear Curt:

When I first joined the American Physical Society sixty-seven years ago it was much smaller, much gentler, and as yet uncorrupted by the money flood (a threat against which Dwight Eisenhower warned a half-century ago).

Indeed, the choice of physics as a profession was then a guarantor of a life of poverty and abstinence—it was World War II that changed all that. The prospect of worldly gain drove few physicists. As recently as thirty-five years ago, when I chaired the first APS study of a contentious social/scientific issue, The Reactor Safety Study, though there were zealots aplenty on the outside there was no hint of inordinate pressure on us as physicists. We were therefore able to produce what I believe was and is an honest appraisal of the situation at that time. We were further enabled by the presence of an oversight committee consisting of Pief Panofsky, Vicki Weisskopf, and Hans Bethe, all towering physicists beyond reproach. I was proud of what we did in a charged atmosphere. In the end the oversight committee, in its report to the APS President, noted the complete independence in which we did the job, and predicted that the report would be attacked from both sides. What greater tribute could there be?

How different it is now. The giants no longer walk the earth, and the money flood has become the raison d’être of much physics research, the vital sustenance of much more, and it provides the support for untold numbers of professional jobs. For reasons that will soon become clear my former pride at being an APS Fellow all these years has been turned into shame, and I am forced, with no pleasure at all, to offer you my resignation from the Society.

It is of course, the global warming scam, with the (literally) trillions of dollars driving it, that has corrupted so many scientists, and has carried APS before it like a rogue wave. It is the greatest and most successful pseudoscientific fraud I have seen in my long life as a physicist. Anyone who has the faintest doubt that this is so should force himself to read the ClimateGate documents, which lay it bare. (Montford’s book organizes the facts very well.) I don’t believe that any real physicist, nay scientist, can read that stuff without revulsion. I would almost make that revulsion a definition of the word scientist.

So what has the APS, as an organization, done in the face of this challenge? It has accepted the corruption as the norm, and gone along with it. For example:…

Harold Lewis is Emeritus Professor of Physics, University of California, Santa Barbara, former Chairman; Former member Defense Science Board, chmn of Technology panel; Chairman DSB study on Nuclear Winter; Former member Advisory Committee on Reactor Safeguards; Former member, President’s Nuclear Safety Oversight Committee; Chairman APS study on Nuclear Reactor Safety Chairman Risk Assessment Review Group; Co-founder and former Chairman of JASON; Former member USAF Scientific Advisory Board; Served in US Navy in WW II; books: Technological Risk (about, surprise, technological risk) and Why Flip a Coin (about decision making)

PedoGate: Global Elite’s Pedophile Empire Is Crumbling… Will It Ever Crash?

As both the scandal and crime of the century, pedophiles entrenched in power have been praying on generations of children for centuries. My call to duty as a therapist who for years worked with sexually abused youth as well as an alt news journalist and world citizen who cares about children, compels me in every way possible to spread the word of truth about this monstrous epidemic. So below is my latest article on this all important, highly disturbing subject matter…

Since the internet bombshell launched by WikiLeaks’ release of John Podesta emails and the uncovered Comet Pizza’s bizarre and suspicious activities leading to last fall’s Pizzagate scandal (PizzaGate for dummies), and the simultaneous reporting of unprecedented number of arrests made in child sex trafficking rings worldwide, clearly demonstrate that law enforcement is finally treating the global epidemic seriously.

Yet the systematic kidnapping, torturing and raping of children by highly organized trafficking rings have barely if at all even scratched the surface of mainstream media coverage, which has chosen to act as a complicit accomplice and partner-in-crime in the unholiest of alliances with the child rapists themselves, consistently ignoring child sex trafficking rings being operated by powerful members of the world’s elite ruling class.

A prime example is the state owned BBC that knew for a number of decades that entertainer Jimmy Savile was raping hundreds if not thousands of defenseless, innocent children throughout the United Kingdom, and said and did absolutely nothing to stop it other than punish and silence those few who came forth trying to expose the evil.

Johnny Rotten of the Sex Pistols was banned by the BBC after he spoke up and once the 37-year old TV presenter Jill Dando called attention to the known pedophilia abuse at the BBC, she was abruptly murdered outside her West London home in April 1999.

And now we’re facing the exact same sort of criminal cover-up and retribution in America with the PizzaGate turned PedoGate scandal, as more children are sacrificed in the interest of protecting the guilty pedophiles.

Again, the Podesta-Clinton connected Pizzagate is but one local DC trafficking network exposed, but PedoGate represents the far global reach of all the child sex trafficking rings that flourish worldwide.

And why mainstream media continues to ignore and pretend that this pure evil savagery isn’t happening anywhere is pure diabolical criminality in and of itself, especially when this epidemic has grown so egregiously out of control that human trafficking as modern day slavery hit a record high in 2016.

Last year’s 7,572 cases of human trafficking jumped by 35% over the previous year. The UN estimates 1.8 million kids are trafficked into the global sex trade every year. We’ve received our collective wake-up call.

Despite these cold hard monstrous facts, America’s lame stream media continues to suppress and protect demented sexual predators at the highest rungs of power, by its longstanding wall of denial, ridicule and even assassination toward those courageous truth seekers, whistleblowers and journalists contending that the planet’s pedophilia scandal is every bit real.

Despite CBS Atlanta affiliate news anchor Ben Swann featuring a fair and accurate six minute synopsis on Pizzagate in January, and then suddenly losing his job and his online presence silenced with Ben’s own “going dark” admission for weeks afterwards, MSM can no longer sweep the inconvenient truth under the rug of denial and deception. We won’t allow it.

No longer will the elite’s despicable pedophile history be tolerated, enabling child rapists like Jimmy Savile to violate and pimp British children for an entire half century, nor will President George H. W. Bush’s criminal role in the Franklin scandal cover-up be dismissed, nor last year’s exposure of disgraced congressional kingpin — former GOP Speaker of the House and pedophile just two heartbeats away from US presidency Dennis Hastert.

Eight US attorneys were fired by President George W. Bush in December 2006 in order to protect convicted lobbyist Jack Abramoff’s sex ring, busily pimping trafficked in children, homosexual and lesbian prostitutes to high government officials and elite media figures at the DC Hilton, Ritz Carlton and Sheraton hotels. For decades pedophilia has thrived in our infested swamp of a capital.

For over a half century the global intelligence community like the CIA, Mossad and MI6 has in fact functioned as pedophilia pimps for the rich and powerful, supplying them with child victims from poor communities, orphanages and group homes around the world, joining the sins of the church in destroying countless young people’s lives and then covering them up.

The heartrending video account by the Hampstead 9-year old sister and her 8-year old brother of satanic ritualized sexual abuse and sacrificial murder drew little response from local UK police other than place the innocent mother in jail. This case typifies how the very agencies mandated to investigate and protect children instead become conduit layers to cover-up and protect the child rapists.

Until just recently global law enforcement as simply standard operating procedure protected the powerful in this world, historically turning a blind eye, abruptly suspending and ceasing every investigation when child molesting perpetrators happen to be:

  • cabinet officials,

But all that may well be changing now….

Amazon in Its Prime: Doubles Profits, Pays $0 in Federal Income Taxes

Amazon, the ubiquitous purveyor of two-day delivery of just about everything, nearly doubled its profits to $11.2 billion in 2018 from $5.6 billion the previous year and, once again, didn’t pay a single cent of federal income taxes.

The company’s newest corporate filing reveals that, far from paying the statutory 21 percent income tax rate on its U.S. income in 2018, Amazon reported a federal income tax rebate of $129 million. For those who don’t have a pocket calculator handy, that works out to a tax rate of negative 1 percent. The fine print of Amazon’s income tax disclosure shows that this achievement is partly due to various unspecified “tax credits” as well as a tax break for executive stock options.

This isn’t the first year that the cyber-retailing giant has avoided federal taxes. Last year, the company paid no federal corporate income taxes on $5.6 billion in U.S. income….
