Legal Bombshell Explodes

The government announced that Liberty Dollars may be subject to seizure. Meanwhile, Alan Greenscum said earlier this month, "Gold, unlike all other commodities, is a currency. And the major thrust in the demand for gold is not for jewelry. It's not for anything other than an escape from what is perceived to be a fiat money system, paper money, that seems to be deteriorating." This Newsletter chronicles the United States gov building a dictatorship to enforce their deteriorating fiat monetary regime and the risk that your Liberty Dollars may be seized.

Dear Liberty Dollar Supporters!

1. Legal Bombshell Explodes
WOW!!! Get ready! On Monday, August 29, 2011, literally while I was appearing in US District Court in Charlotte NC, Coin World issued a Front Page article, that covered three pages titled: "Liberty Dollars may be subject to seizure."

The shocking bombshell article, appears to reverse the gov's earlier statement that Coin World published on April 18, 2011: "Liberty Dollars legal to collect, official says - Private bullion pieces illegal to use as money." by senior staff writer Paul Gilkes.

The new article states: Liberty Dollars held by collectors may be subject to seizure as contraband by federal law enforcement, officials with the U.S. Attorney's Office and Secret Service said Aug. 24. It seems that new statements by those two federal law enforcement agencies reverse the position released from the United States Attorney's Office in Charlotte, N.C., and published by Coin World in April.

The new article quotes Jill Rose, chief of the criminal division for the U.S. Attorney's Office in Charlotte, N.C., and the prosecutor who convicted Bernard von NotHaus that the Liberty Dollar medallions are confiscable as contraband regardless if they are being exhibited for educational purposes only.

The most telling new statement in the article comes from the US Secret Service. On Aug. 24, in addition to speaking with Rose, Coin World talked separately with Glen Kessler, assistant special agent in charge in North Carolina for the U.S. Secret Service. Kessler subsequently conferred with his Secret Service superiors as to the potential confiscation and informed Coin World that because the publication has a worldwide audience, he had to defer additional comments to the U.S. Secret Service Office of Public Affairs. George Ogilvie, the public affairs officer for the U.S. Secret Service in Washington, D.C., said Aug. 25 the bureau had no comment on Liberty Dollar and indicated that Coin World would have to call back in a few weeks.

To many this sounds like the gov is very poorly prepared, does not know its ass from a hole in the ground and would like all of us to just forget about this matter. Are you going to forget about it? Hell NO! Are you going to forget that the gov confiscated your property?! Hell NO!. And I am certainly not going to forget about this either! Nobody can forget or forgive the gov for stealing their purchasing power every day! And nobody should allow the gov to continue with its corrupt, immoral fiat currency that is constantly losing value!

The complete shocking article that is full of gov fear-mongering is available HERE.

Will the conviction of BVNH/Liberty Dollar prove to be the cross that is too heavy for even the 500 pound gov gorilla to bear? Only time will tell how far the gov is prepared to carry this contemptible cross of illogical Biblical proportions.

How illogical?

The answer is as illogical as the current ONE DOLLAR US Silver Eagle that contains one ounce of silver. Currently, the one ounce Silver Eagle costs approx $45 but has a face value of one dollar. That is idiotic and makes no sense what so ever. Plus it confirms the stupidity of the US gov monetary policy and helps "free thinkers" realize the unique profitable solution that the Liberty Dollar presents to the current out-of-whack US dollar.


As a result of the gov scare tactics in the latest article, the prices of Liberty Dollar are already up dynamically! One collector reports that a one ounce copper is now $75 on eBay! In the past, a one ounce platinum Ron Paul Dollar went for $20,000!!! The gov is being stupid. No news there, right? But can they really go after ALL the Liberty Dollars? Not ALL, but unfortunately the gov have all the records from the Liberty Dollar office that includes all the orders so they could induce a new Reign of Terror. But can they get all? NO WAY. But they could certainly drive prices much higher.

The bottom line is that hundreds of thousands of Liberty Dollars have been used with merchants and third parties, given as gifts and many many are tucked away as trophies by the brave men and women who stood up for what was right in demanding the gov provide 'just weights and measures' for an honest means of exchange or they will do it themselves. Which is exactly what happened! I am very proud and honored by everyone who took a stand for a value base currency! God save the country because the gov can't!

So, please protect yourself and your money. And don't succumb to the fear that the gov is sowing. Hold on to your gold, silver and copper until a true value based medium of exchange is freely available in the marketplace. Until then, shun anything you know is false.

In regards to my case, nothing seems has happened and nothing may not happen until Judge Voorhees rules on my Motion for a new trial or dismissal. Federal District Court Judges have no time requirement when they must respond to a motion. Please be patient. Keep the faith! And please keep your prayers and good wishes focused for a positive outcome regardless of the odds against it. My case and the Liberty Dollar is in God's hands. I will issue an Alert as soon as the Judge rules on my motion.

2. 40th Anniversary: Death of the Gold Standard
It's been forty years since Nixon closed the Gold Window on August 15, 1971 and effectively killed the last vestige of the Gold Standard. I have saved more than 50 articles regarding the consequences of this action that breed floating exchanges rates and the current currency race to the bottom of the monetary pit. Certainly the worse is yet to come if the world follows the money into the rat hole of hyperinflation and a Nazi type future.

By Sunday morning on August 15, 1971, the 20,000 tons of the yellow metal deposited in Fort Knox in 1933 had decreased substantially due to the high military costs of the Vietnam War and foreign countries' abilities of exchanging gold backed dollars for actual metal. The United States, the once great leading global economic power, could no longer honor its financial commitments and President Richard Nixon declared the inconvertibility of the dollar into gold. As a result, the Bretton Woods system officially ended and the dollar became a fully fiat currency, backed only by the promise of the US government.

Nixon Ends Bretton Woods International Monetary System
Here is a video that shows Nixon announcing that the dollar will no longer be backed up by gold for international transactions. Gold had been outlawed for domestic use as money since 1933. This alarming event sparked the political career of a doctor named Ron Paul who participated in the only visit to Fort Knox on September 24, 1974.

The "Idiot of the Month" award goes to Alan Schram, Managing Partner of Wellcap Partners, a hedge fund based in Los Angeles, who wrote an article for the Huffington Post titled: Is Gold a Good Inflation Hedge? and states: "Gold does not generate cash flow, does not have any intrinsic value and therefore it is of dubious value as a long term investment." [Editor note: He must be paid by the gov…]

Certainly closing the Gold Window was a most offensive move against a value based dollar and the first building block towards a modern dictatorial government.

3. US Raises the Debt Ceiling
House Passes $2.1 Trillion U.S. Debt-Limit Increase

The House of Representatives approved legislation to raise the U.S. debt limit by at least $2.1 trillion and cut federal spending by $2.4 trillion or more, one day before a threatened default.

Senate easily passes bill to raise debt ceiling

US Raises Debt Ceiling But Jittery Markets Plummet

Did they do anything to Avert a Crisis? No. Any tax increase? No. Cut Defense Spending? No. Take any money out of pocket? No. Discuss a Constitutional Amendment? No. Make any Concessions? No. Cut any Spending? No. They did nothing more than vote for hyperinflation and add another block towards building a dictatorship.

As a result the Disapproval of Congress has hit an all time record high of 84% according to a Gallup poll released on August 16, 2011, barely a week after pollster Pat Caddell warned that a dramatic loss of confidence in the country's leadership meant Americans were now "pre-revolutionary."

The Gallup Report states: "Americans have usually not held Congress in high regard, but currently they have a more negative view of the institution than any other time that Gallup has measured it since 1975. The 84% rate is up sharply in less than a month when the disapproval figure stood at 77%. Click HERE for the full report.

Raising the Debt Ceiling was another building block towards a dictatorship.

4. S&P Downgrades U.S. Debt Rating
While many were shocked by S&P downgrading the US debt, I was very pleased that S&P had the balls to do what was obvious and correct. If anything they should have done it much sooner instead of warning the gov that it was about to happen. But what the heck, it finally happened and now it should be abundantly clear the gov has voted for hyperinflation. The government ruining it's credit rating was another building block towards a dictatorship.

5. Currency Collapse and Hyperinflation Nation
The next big building block towards a dictatorship is to destroy the US dollar with a currency collapse via hyperinflation. There are countless articles and video that confirm the gov is doing exactly that. Of course, nothing is confirmed until officially denied (by the government.)

6. Block by Block the US Is Building a Dictatorship
From removing gold and silver from the US currency, killing the gold standard, not reporting M3, lying about inflation, rising the debt ceiling and destroying the national credit rating, are steps towards setting the stage for currency collapse, hyperinflation, market crashes, national emergency, civil unrest, riots, marshal law, canceling elections and finally a dictatorship to bring order, all in the name of safeguarding our liberty, awaits us in the very near future.

To any ordinary person who questions this crazy situation it certainly appears that Washington is destroying America on purpose! In fact, Washington's !@#$#@! couldn't destroy the nation's economy faster - even if they WERE doing it on purpose! Just imagine, the very men and women that most people "think" should keep our economy strong - seem to be doing everything in their power to destroy the US dollar and turn America into a first class police state.

In reality, Congressmen and women do not think, are neither highly motivated to be patriotic nor is it their job to keep the economy or the dollar strong! It would be best if they just left the damn economy and our money alone and governed under the US Constitution. Actually it would be far better - if they just stayed home. Period!

And while the economic events are bad, the specter of terrorism and war far outweigh the monetary gamesmanship by the gov. From Ruby Ridge, to Waco, to Oklahoma City, to New York City on September 11, and then the PATRIOT Act and on to Iraq, to Afghanistan, and well over 100 military operations worldwide, the government has decimated our moral society. Not since the Opium Wars by the British in China has any government wrecked such long term damage on a single society. The US government is at war with the world and we will hell to pay for it.

Nothing confirms this more than a careful reading of the "The Budget Control Act Of 2011." Only the gov would give this garbage the perverse title of a "Budget Control Act."

What control? There is NO control! The gov is OUT OF CONTROL!!!

Did you notice how President Obama slickly and unconstitutionally inserted himself to take control of Congress' role over the federal purse strings? The lamestream media glossed over this detail in reporting the Obummer-Bonehead debt limit deal the President announced via TV on Sunday, July 31st.

Nobody has done a better job of exposing the insidious gov plan titled "Budget Control" and the alarming building blocks of a dictatorship than the Appellant Attorneys who came to my aid and filed the two Amicus Briefs on behalf of GATA and in defense of the Liberty Dollar. On August 4, 2011, Herbert W. Titus and William J. Olson distinguished themselves with their editorial: The Budget Control Act Of 2011 Violates Constitutional Order in The American Thinker.

Among the brilliant insights, Herb and Bill said, "By giving the President the authority to increase the debt ceiling and to determine that borrowing is necessary to meet the nation's commitments, this bill turns the legislative process on its head."

Heil Dictator! Hell, here we come.

The feedback was equally good: "Mr. Titus and Mr. Olson have done us all a service by pointing out the fundamental change this bill makes to our government's system of checks and balances. I hope that in the future they can expand on the possibility of this legislation being taken up and overturned by our courts."

Another very well written article by Mr. Titus and Mr. Olson is posted HERE.

Title IV of the Budget Control Act vests in a joint select committee the power to draft legislation to reduce the deficit by at least $1.5 trillion over the period of fiscal years 2012 to 2021. Here, members of Congress yield their individual legislative duties and responsibilities to a "Super Congress" selected not by the people -- but by the !@#$#@! Republican and Democratic leaders. Please read this article for more info about how Obama's "Super Congress" Dictatorship Usurps Congress

If you read the first four articles, it should be abundantly clear that the gov is deliberately building a dictatorship and your money, liberties, property, retirement funds, standard of living and the very lives of far too many Americans are about to be destroyed.

How bad can it get? Deadly. Recently, Ron Paul acknowledged that: "They're Setting The Stage For Violence In This Country"

So how does a country become a dictatorship? How did Hitler rise to power? The government did it. Block by block. And it is happening right now in America!

The first newspaper has already called for Obummer's impeachment. On July 22, 2011, Jeffrey T. Kuhner of The Washington Times wrote: President's socialist takeover must be stopped and called for Obummer's impeachment.

The alarm has been sounded. Only the government and the dumbest of the dumb are not taking action. As America moves toward a Nazi style hyperinflationary depression complete with an all-powerful dictator, don't be dumb. Use "dollar cost averaging" to accumulate more silver, regardless of the price until America's monetary system has returned to a value based currency that is fully convertible to gold and silver.

Please revisit the Declaration of Independence. And while the first sentence is quite familiar with: We hold these truths to be self-evident… The second sentence states the People's Right quite clearly: That whenever any Form of Government becomes destructive of these ends [life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness], it is the Right of the People to alter or to abolish it, and to institute a new Government, laying its foundation on such principles and organizing its powers in such form, as to them shall seem most likely to effect their Safety and Happiness.

"When injustice becomes law, resistance becomes duty." Thomas Jefferson.

7. The Case for $25,000 per Ounce Gold
The most asked question I got while on tour for ten years was, "How high will the price of gold and silver go?" Of course nobody knows. But that has not stopped countless advisors and dealers from quoting a wide range of prices. Now the Economic Policy Journal has published their Paper: The Case for $25,000 per Ounce Gold.

And of course they are not the only one with an opinion. It seems like almost every day, somebody who should know better, pipes up with yet another wildasssed estimate as to high how high the price of gold and silver will go.

Given the odds that the !@#$#@! gov has now programmed America for massive hyperinflation, possibly the kind that ushered in Nazi Germany, that is a likely place to find an answer to how high will the metals go. Look at what happened in Germany during three years of hyperinflation.

In January 1919 one ounce of silver was 12 German marks (silver was $12 US dollar not long ago) and an ounce of gold was 170 German marks (gold was $252.50 in 1999).

Less than four years later, in November 1923, one ounce of silver was 543,750,000,000 (billion) German marks!! And one ounce of gold was 87,000,000,000,000 (trillion) German marks!!!

The price of precious metals is the barometer that measures people's fear index of their national currency in comparison to gold and silver. There is no doubt that the fear index and metals are rising as the national gov currencies lose their purchasing power. Hopefully you bought silver long ago. If not, please consider using "dollar cost averaging" to maximize your return and minimize your fear.

8. NIA Sounds the Alarm with "End of Liberty"
The National Inflation Association (NIA) specializes in publicizing the latest info on inflation with videos and making mining stock recommendations. While I don't recommend mining stocks unless you have the time and money to bet on the ponies… I like NIA's videos and particularly the "End of Liberty" that refers to the current economic situation as a criminal monetary system and thinks the U.S. is headed for a complete societal collapse! This may be one of the most important films to watch!

9. Liberty Dollar to "Move Up" to $100 Silver Base?
On August 31, the 30 day moving average (30DMA) for silver was $40.29. Now that the Liberty Dollar model may Move Up from its current $50 silver Base to the $100 Silver Base, it is time to theoretically examine the currency's unique time based econometric structural model.

As designed by BVNH, Monetary Architect of the Liberty Dollar, the free market currency model moves up in bracketed steps so the value based currency remains in sync with it base metal. Initially the Liberty Dollar was introduced in 1998 at the $10 Silver Base when silver was approx $5 per ounce. Over the period of ten years, the Liberty Dollar Moved Up to the $20 and then to is current base of $50. The world's first free market currency has a specific disciplined econometric structure that was designed to always be in sync with the underlying metals market.

As per that design, the Liberty Dollar will Move Up to the $100 Silver Base when the 30DMA stays over $41.50 for 60 consecutive calendar days. That means that the one ounce 999 silver Liberty Dollar would then feature a MSRP of $100. So if you wanted to exchange US dollars for $100 Liberty Dollar the exchange would be 100 USD for 100 American Liberty Dollars (ALD) with a $100 MSRP on a one ounce Liberty Dollar that could be used for $100 in a retail transaction. (Please note most of the Liberty Dollar currency was exchanged at a very steep volume discount pricing as bullion + premium that enabled supporters to 'get it at a discount and use it at a profit' with an even greater profits as the value based currency protected your purchasing power over time.)

Of course, all of this is only theoretical as the Monetary Architect has been convicted of counterfeiting and the Liberty Dollar is not available at this time. (Please note the Liberty Dollar was legal to be bought, sold, traded and collected as a numismatic item until the recent article on August 29, 2011.)

Here are four in depth explanations on how the Liberty Dollar - the world's first private free market currency - was specifically designed to remain in sync with the wild velocity of the gold and silver markets, regardless of the market value of the precious metals i.e. the lost of value of the US dollar.

10. Happily Swamped by Facebook:)
WOW the messages from supporters are very encouraging and greatly appreciated!!!

Here is a recent post on my wall by an unfamiliar friend: "I have some of those Liberty Dollars and after making over +3000% return on some of them --the rest are NOT for sale. And with silver (which is what Libertys are made of) climbing over 800% since FY 2000, --I've never made a better portfolio decision than the Liberty Dollar! Go Bernard! You Rock! If the world had more "terrorists" like you, -we'd all be much better off!"

My sincere thanks to all my Facebook friends for your posts and messages. Keep it UP!!! Just know that there is no way for me to reply to all the posts but I sure love every message and I trust you understand.

Closing Remarks:
As we near Liberty Dollar's 13th Anniversary, lets rejoice in our accomplishments. We took the Liberty Dollar further than any other alternate currency in monetary history. Plus we have had a lot of fun doing it! Sorry the raid, arrest and conviction have stalled the people's right to be free from of bad gov money that keeps depreciating.

Thanks for your continued support. For it is only by banding together and adopting a free and independent currency that provides us with "just weights and measures" will we be able to throw off the yoke of a manipulated monetary/tax system and generate a peaceful and prosperous society.

Thanks again for all your efforts to return America to value - one dollar at a time!
