The Justice Department (Practically) Tags Bernanke as a Terrorist

JDA is probably on a couple watchlists herself (*waves*) but there is no greater terrorist than the guy who makes a career out of debasing our currency.

The following sounds like something that could have come out of Ron Paul's mouth but instead comes directly from the DoJ, who are further shirking their duties if they don't head over to the Board of Governors and arrest Zimbabwe Ben immediately.

Sovereign Man breaks it down for us:
The United States Department of Justice delivered a very clear and unfortunate message on Friday:

“Attempts to undermine the legitimate currency of this country are simply a unique form of domestic terrorism. While these forms of anti-government activities do not involve violence, they are every bit as insidious and represent a clear and present danger to the economic stability of this country.”

These remarks were released by the US Attorney’s office in the western district of North Carolina following the conviction of one Bernard von NotHaus, the creator of the ill-fated Liberty Dollar.

As you likely recall from a few years ago, Liberty Dollars were privately minted gold and silver rounds. Paper certificates, akin to warehouse receipts were also issued, effectively giving the bearer a right to claim a certain amount of gold or silver at the group’s warehouse in Coeur d’Alene, Idaho.

This is traditionally how the system of money used to function– precious metals would be stored in private, secure storage facilities, and paper certificates were issued as a medium of exchange that entitled the bearer to redeem metal from the vault. Liberty Dollars represented a return to that system.

Clearly, the Justice Department feels otherwise… instead viewing these silver rounds as an attempt by terrorists to undermine the US dollar.

Interesting choice of words. Undermine? “verb [transitive]. to erode the base or foundation of something. to damage or weaken, especially gradually. ”

Funny, this sounds a lot more like quantitative easing than anything else. Ben Bernanke, in creating trillions of new dollars and debasing the value thereof, is guilty of the same insidious acts, and similarly, he represents a clear and present danger to the economic stability of the United States.

In Bernanke's mind, he is a hero. A student of the Great Depression, Bernanke likely feels that he has done America and the world some great service by swooping in and injecting free money as far as the eye can see. The inaction on the part of the GD-era Federal Reserve was a favorite focus of his when he buried his bearded face in GD textbooks to prepare for his future as overseer of the Second Great Depression 2008 - present.

To the rest of us who know better, he is a terrorist. And it really shouldn't take clarification by the DoJ to figure that out.

Jr Deputy Accountant

Some say he’s half man half fish, others say he’s more of a seventy/thirty split. Either way he’s a fishy bastard.

Andy Mellon's advice went in and out of deaf ears and the country fiddle farted around for a decade. We're just washing, rinsing and repeating. Human beings rarely make painful sacrifices that are sharp and immediate so as to "get on with life". We're too chickenshit to do so when the rubber meets the road so we suffer a death by a thousand cuts instead.

I think this guys mistake was minting them with the words "US, LIBERTY, DOLLAR". However this is at best counterfeiting, and probably not even that.

I like how they seize the 7 million in bullion though. Getting desperate yet, guys?

Lemme see 7 million now in bullion at 36$-- that's gonna be quite a chunk of change when it hits 80$-500$ an oz.

Everynight, after he takes off his pinky ring and smokes his last Tampa for the day, Ben tucks in a little dollar bill for nighty-night and sings the sleepy little FRN a lullaby

What to annihilate
This age-old contradiction

LOVE the barking mid-song. I think they'd do an excellent cover of Lou Reed's White Light / White Heat.
