“…shall be deemed guilty of felony, and shall suffer death.”

by Robert John Stevens, May 7, 2016

“…shall be deemed guilty of felony, and shall suffer death.” — Penalty for debasing gold, silver or copper coins, Section 19, The Coinage Act of April 2, 1792

Had the Founding Fathers added just a few more words to extend the death penalty to people who didn’t work at the mint, they may have stopped the rise of the national banks, Federal Reserve, the unnecessary deaths of millions and significantly altered the course of history.

The Financial System Is A Larger Threat Than Terrorism — Paul Craig Roberts

Two solutions remaining regarding banks:

Throughout the Western world the financial system has become an exploiter of the people and a deadweight loss on economies. There are only two possible solutions. One is to break the large banks up into smaller and local entities such as existed prior to the concentration that deregulation fostered. The other is to nationalize them and operate them solely in the interest of the general welfare of the population.—Paul Craig Roberts

Broke U.S. Government Confiscates Billions From The Federal Reserve

Can this really be true?

Selected Quotes

n the U.S., the Federal Reserve’s assets total $4.486 trillion, including more than $2 TRILLION in U.S. government debt.

The Fed also has total capital (i.e. net worth) of $39.5 billion.

That sounds like a lot. Until you realize that it constitutes just 0.88% of its total assets. Not even 1%!

Just two weeks ago, the Fed’s total capital was nearly $59 billion. And even that wasn’t very much given the size of its balance sheet.

Today it’s $39.5. This is an incredible 33% drop in just two weeks!

It turns out that Congress and the President passed a law last month called the Fixing America’s Surface Transportation (FAST) Act.

And, buried deep within the nearly 500 pages of legislation is a neat little section demanding that Federal Reserve bank surpluses above a certain amount must be turned over to the United States Department of Treasury.

In other words, the U.S. government is so broke that they’re now confiscating assets from the Fed, putting the entire global financial system at even more risk.

Stock market rigging is no longer a ‘conspiracy theory’

America was built on capitalism and free and fair markets. Today’s markets aren’t fair. In fact, they are unfair because they are putting lots of money into the pockets of a small number of Americans.

The bigger problem is this: If stock prices are artificially inflated, nobody can tell what a company is really worth. And banks are going to be hesitant to lend money to companies with fuzzy valuations.
