The sad truth is that our Congress has developed the mindset to totally ignore the Constitution that they took an oath to uphold. Most say that the lure of power is too strong to resist. This must be so because the rush to enslave US is so obvious. Smart folks, like our congresspersons, know full well the consequences of their actions. By continually finding ways to constrict liberty while rigging regulations so that favored companies gain government contracts the current Congress is creating a Mafia style government in which they must continually pay homage to higher-ups or risk being left behind when the “big shakeup” of government takeover happens. The fix is in; they know it and they want to be on the winning side when it happens.
Barbed wire and Big Brother
The magic of our system of government was that power was diffused amongst several branches of government that pitted each against the other. However the forces of collectivism took hold and began its march. There has always been great wealth, and with the use of technology, a concerted effort by an ever growing group determined to gain absolute control has steadfastly undermined US. We are nearly at the end. IMHO, the next generation will grow up with barbed wire and Big Brother.
The Supreme Court as G-d
I am sure that you have heard the old saw, “If you saw it in the newspaper (in print) then it must be true.” I’m guessing that a similarly misguided, lazy, self-serving, non-critical thinking, and/or purposefully deceiving mentality is at work when someone says, “The Constitution is what the Supreme Court says it is.”
The Supreme Court acts as if they are G-d Himself. But G-d did not want his Commandments to be twisted beyond recognition. I submit that if G-d had wanted his Ten Commandments to be altered into political correctness, he would have given them to Congress instead of giving them to Moses.
In fact, in another great error in reporting, the Constitution does not create three co-equal branches of government, as we always hear. The Constitution created an Executive and a two part Legislative branch. The Judiciary was to be created but its mandate was to be limited by the Legislative branch. This means that it is Congress that determines what is constitutional, not the courts. Congress can, at any time, revoke the privilege of the courts to adjudicate in any particular area, for instance, abortion, campaign finance law, or creating money, etc.
The rational for this limitation is set out in The Federalist; Hamilton said that the elected branches hold the mandate to create law, not the unelected judiciary, and especially not nine unelected jurists who serve for life. The role of the jurist is to say if the law conforms to the constitutional precept. This is a role that the courts have abandoned. Now, anything is allowable. There are no effective restraints on law, regulations nor executive orders.
Power to the people
This nation is galloping down the wrong path. The Supreme Court is helping greatly by allowing unconstitutional law to remain in place, unchallenged. The 10th Amendment reads: The powers not delegated to the United States by the Constitution, nor prohibited by it to the States, are reserved to the States respectively, or to the people. Isn’t this clear? The states and the people shall handle all items not specifically delegated to the federal government. It is that simple. It is a mistake to think that those learned men stated in the Constitution anything other than exactly what they intended. Yet, I have never heard any justice say that existing law is not in keeping with the founders and their original intent, and therefore constitutionally suspect.
Anyone who cleaves to the notion that the Constitution is “out of date, made for an agrarian society, etc.” is not using their G-d given critical thinking skills. Simply read the founders to know that they had looked at history and came to the conclusion that men are not to be trusted within government, and were we to have a free society, men “must be tied with the chains of a constitution.” T Jefferson.
The Constitution’s mandate was to hold an individual’s life, liberty, and property to be sacrosanct. Our rights were not to be community property. We were to have an ordered liberty. In the classic sense, that means individuals had the responsibility to live within accepted rules; but the rules first had to comply with the unalienable rights defending an individual’s life, liberty, and property. The individual right is higher, more important than the rule dictated by any governmental body. This is the antithesis of “it takes a village” and other egalitarian nostrums.
The money power
Below is just one chapter in the implementation of a plan to doom America! Limiting the money supply was the founder’s primary weapon for restraining the growth of government. Congress eliminated this restraint, not with a statute, and certainly not with a constitutional amendment, but with a mere Resolution. Those still believing we are a government, “of the people, by the people, and for the people,” should now see that we really are a government, “of the corrupted, by the deceitful, and for the powerful.”
Look at the first line of the resolution below. Here, the Congress says that it can waive a tenant of the Constitution – simply by claiming that it affects the public interest. Now you know how the Constitution has been obliterated. Everything affects public interest, and therefore, there is nothing to restrain Congress – except you. We the people are the guarantors of the Constitution, not the Supreme Court.
Only gold and silver is money
Remember, the only “law” is the Constitution. All else is subservient. Where Supreme Court justices move away from original intent, then they are just as much the problem as Congress.
Article 1 Section 8: Powers of Congress: “To coin Money, regulate the Value thereof, and of foreign Coin, and fix the Standard of Weights and Measures;” This is clear, to coin money is to restrict legal money to coins, historically made of gold and silver; and that Congress shall regulate coinage via the creation of Standard Weights. Because the supply of gold and silver is small, the government would not be able to spend a large amount, allowing citizens to keep the fruits of their own labor. Indeed, even until 1910, the government’s take was only 10% of the GDP versus today’s minimum of 45% of the GDP.
Then it happened – the Constitution breached
On June 5, 1933, Congress passed House Joint Resolution (HJR 192). HJR 192 was passed to suspend the gold standard and abrogate the gold clause in the national constitution. Since then no one in America has been able to lawfully pay a debt. This resolution declared:
"To assure uniform value to the coins and currencies of the Unites States,
Whereas the holding of or dealing in gold affect public interest, and are therefore subject to proper regulation and restriction; and
Whereas the existing emergency has disclosed that provisions of obligations which purport to give the obligee a right to require payment in gold or a particular kind of coin or currency of the United States, or in an amount in money of the United States measured thereby, obstruct the power of the Congress to regulate the value of the money of the United States, and are inconsistent with the declared policy of the Congress to maintain at all times the equal power of every dollar, coined or issued by the United States, in the markets and in the payment of debts,
Now, therefore, be it Resolved by the Senate and House of t Representative of the United States of America in Congress assembled, that
(a) every provision contained in or made with respect to any obligation which purports to give the obligee a right to require payments in gold or a particular kind of coin or currency, or in an amount in money of the United States measured thereby, is declared to be against public policy; and no such provision shall be contained in or made with respect to any obligation hereafter incurred. Every obligation, heretofore or hereafter incurred, whether or not any such provision is contained therein or made with respect thereto, shall be discharged upon payment, dollar for dollar, in any coin or currency which at time of payment is legal tender for public and private debts. Any such provision contained in any law authorizing obligations to be issued by or under authority of the United States, is herby repealed, but the repeal of any such provision shall not invalidate any other provision or authority contained in such law.
(b) As used in this resolution, the term 'obligation' means any obligation (including every obligation of and to the United States, excepting currency) payable in money of the United States; and the term 'coin or currency' means coin or currency of the United States, including Federal Reserve notes and circulating notes of Federal Reserve banks and national banking associations.
Sec. 2 The last sentence of paragraph (1) of subsection (b) of section 43 of the Act entitled 'An Act to relieve the existing national economic emergency by increasing agricultural purchasing power, to raise revenue for extraordinary expenses incurred by reason of such emergency, to provide emergency relief with respect to agricultural indebtedness, to provide for the orderly liquidation of joint-stock land banks, and of other purposes;, approved May 12, 1933, is amended to read as follows:
"All coins and currencies of the United Stated (including Federal Reserve notes and circulating notes of the Federal Reserve banks and national banking associations) heretofore or hereafter coined or issued, shall be legal tender for all debts, public and private, public charges, taxes, duties, and dues, except that gold coins, when below the standard weight and limit of tolerance provided by law for the single piece, shall be legal tender only at valuation in proportion to their actual weight.'
Approved, June 5, 1933, 4:40 p.m. 31 U.S.C.A. 462, 463
House Joint Resolution 192, 73d Congress, Sess. I, Ch. 48, June 5, 1933 (Public Law No. 10)
Note: "payment of debt" is now against Congressional and "public policy" and henceforth, "Every obligation . . . Shall be discharged."
As a result of HJR 192, and from that day forward (June 5, 1933), no one in this nation has been able to lawfully pay a debt or lawfully own anything. The only thing one can do, is tender in transfer of debts, with the debt being perpetual. The suspension of the gold standard, and prohibition against paying debts, removed the substance for our common law to operate on, and created a void as far as the law is concerned. This substance was replaced with a "PUBLIC NATIONAL CREDIT SYSTEM" where debt is "LEGAL TENDER" money.
HJR 192 was implemented immediately. The day after President Roosevelt signed the resolution, the treasury offered the public new government securities, minus the traditional "payable in gold" clause.
HJR 192 states that one cannot demand a certain form of currency that they want to receive if it is dollar for dollar. The Federal Reserve Bank of Chicago created a workbook to explain bank reserves and expansion of deposits. If you review this Modern Money Mechanics article you will discover that all currency is your credit! The Federal Reserve calls it "monetized debt."
No constitutional mindset
Not a single candidate for president has called for the repeal of HJR 192. Not a single reporter has asked any candidate about going back onto the gold system. I have never heard a judge being asked to clarify how it is that a constitutional mandate can be abrogated by a mere Resolution of Congress. If it were that easy, why didn’t Congress simply undo the 18th Amendment to Repeal Liquor with a simple House Joint Resolution? I suspect that despite being illegal and causing societal havoc, liquor was plentiful, just as drugs are today.

Why hasn’t Congress totally taken away the right to bear arms in this manner of simply passing a House Joint Resolution? As for the guns, Congress knows that millions of gun toting citizens will not obey. However, few understand the value of being on the gold standard. Fewer still understand the debilities of fiat money and the power it gives Congress and especially those who control Congress. The banks would never have given out those bad mortgages were we on the gold standard. Bush and Obama would never been able to print trillions of dollars were we on the gold standard.
Do you still think things happen by accident?
Do something before it is too late.
May G-d Bless US All
