IS THE COLLAPSE OF THE DOLLAR NEAR?
As I write, the Canadian dollar is at par with our own, which hasn�t happened for more than thirty years. The Saudis for the first time are refusing to follow the Fed�s Bernanke down the chute and Communist-occupied China, which Washington created, is threatening to destroy the dollar by dumping it. The Euro, which started out as an experiment, now stands at an unbelievable $1.40, trending higher.
The bond market could collapse. Talk about a possible collapse of the dollar is in the air, and you no longer need be crazy to say it. We�re talking about the impossible possibility that foreigners will stop buying U.S. paper, stop paying for Boosh spending. The only thing the Fed knows to do is lower the interest rate and keep printing �money,� which is �good� for Wall Street, but bad for Main Street.
So, here is proof that however rich you are, if you spend without end eventually you will go broke, especially if you kite checks and spend money you don�t have, no matter how masterfully you conceal it. After a while, people realize that there is no money in the account you wrote that rubber check on. And that is what the Federal Reserve Note amounts to: a rubber check.
Proof of its fraudulence is proclaimed in its very name. It says it is a �Note� but it is not. What is a note? You don�t need to be Ludwig von Mises to know that a note is a promise to pay. Pay what? Money! U.S. currency used to be honest, however unwise. On the note there was a �promise to pay.� If you took the note downtown, they would actually pay you money, some form of gold or silver. It was in effect a check, written by the government.
The Federal Reserve �Note� no longer even bothers to promise anything. Instead, it counts on the ignorance of the American people about such matters, deliberately engineered in the nation�s Communist government schools. I had taken required economics courses and had degrees from two of the most prestigious universities in the world before I ever heard of von Mises. Had you mentioned it at the time, I would have assumed Ludwig was the guy who ran the delicatessen on the corner. And by the way, the word �Federal� is also a fraud, because the non-note isn�t federal but semi-private, and there is absolutely no �reserve.�
The obvious question arises: Is this the emergency we have been awaiting, the manufactured emergency that could trigger the martial law for which Boosh is lusting? Remember that we have known one is coming because Jorge has set all the requirements for it in place; what we have not known is when, of course, and what kind of emergency it will be? A financial emergency would have the �advantage� of reaching all Americans. It would not be localized like Nine Eleven.
By coincidence, former Fed Chairman Alan Greenscum is doing interviews about his new multi-million dollar book. Because he ran the Fed for eighteen years, Greenscum is largely responsible for the present disaster, but he is peddling the same rancid claptrap to push the book. Members of Congress used to treat his every utterance like the musings of a god. Now he says the purpose of the war in Iraq is conquest of the oil. So, if everything else he said as Fed chairman was true, according to those worshipful Members, is this latest assertion true as well?
His finagling with the interest rates certainly contributed greatly to the real estate bubble that is now exploding. He says he knew about abuses, but that he could do nothing about them. Before he became Fed chairman, he denounced it brilliantly; as chairman he did all the things he had denounced. I shall not go over his criminal career again here. Greenscum was an inspiration for one of my recent books, Scumbags I Have Known: and Other Profundities. If you want to know what no one else will tell you about him, read it.
Although he is a particularly virulent scumbag, he is not the worst one I have known. The worst is Mike Wallace, of the Communist Broadcasting System, which is why his picture is on the cover. I used to write his show. Mike Wallace is dog vomit crawling with maggots the dog is lapping up. Mike is the snot dripping from the nose of a skid row drunk.
Mike Wallace is the man who attended a seminar on journalistic ethics (how did he get in?) where he told participants that if he learned of an impending ambush of a U.S. Marine patrol, he would not warn the platoon commander, because to do so would compromise his �journalistic impartiality.� It�s all about Mike, you see. Some people have marveled that Mike has lived so long. He�s in his late eighties. It�s really very simple. God doesn�t want him and he�s too putrid a scumbag to get into Hell.
So, what can you do? You can go offshore. Even today, few Americans are as familiar with offshore as Europeans for an obvious reason. In many places in Europe, you can drive a couple of hours in any direction and wind up in a different country, with a different language and culture. Europeans are used to that. You can even jump in your car in London and drive through the Chunnel to Paris. So, many Europeans speak more than one language. They are comfortable in other countries.
But you can board a plane in Caribou, Maine, fly all day, spend the night in Los Angeles, board another plane, fly all day, spend another night in Honolulu, board another plane and fly all day to Guam. When you get off you will be exhausted and half-crazy of course, but the people there will still speak English and you will still be mostly in the same culture. (Of course this would not be true if you fly to Detroit.) So, most Americans still regard offshore with suspicion.
But you must discard that suspicion and become comfortable offshore � and you must do so quickly, for at least a couple of reasons. First are the reasons I cited above. The dollar appears to be unraveling. Remember, a pale imitation of the same thing happened before, during the War for Independence, when a man made a suit of clothes out of worthless Continental currency. That was why the Founding Fathers had such a horror of paper �money.�
The second reason is that the collapse of the dollar could trigger the martial law Boosh is lusting for, under which there could be exchange controls. You say you want the border closed? Suppose Boosh gives you what you want. Suppose he closes the border and you are not able to get out. This has happened in many countries. It happened in the Republic of South Africa when Washington imposed Communism there.
When I was a child, long before the Revolution, people routinely said we lived in the freest country on earth, which was true � then. Now it isn�t. Many countries enjoy more freedom than we do. With some exceptions, the countries of Central and South America and the Caribbean do. Switzerland certainly does.
In Costa Rica, for instance, the police couldn�t care less what you do in your house. If you leave the government alone, they will ignore you. Of course, if you provoke them, if you kill someone and hang his corpse from a tree outside your gate, in a couple of weeks they would probably come and politely ask whether something is wrong. If the taxes are not paid on a house, they will be paid eventually when the house is sold. The idea of kicking someone out of his home for unpaid taxes � as we do here � would be considered utterly uncivilized.
�Offshore� simply means outside the United States. It means keeping your assets in one of those countries. It does not necessarily mean that you physically are there as well, but it could. The oppression in this country has by now become so tangible that many people are leaving or at least thinking of it. Again and again, people tell me that without being prompted. Just in case, why not go to your nearest Post Office with $95 and apply for your passport.
Consider also that if the conspiracy for world government gets its way � and so far it has � there soon will be no onshore here to be offshore from. The country is being dismantled. Add up the Treason Highway, the North American Union and the invasion and infiltration of criminal aliens and you end up not with the United States but with a wide spot in the road.
A while back, I walked into an American bank and asked to buy $2,000 in travelers� checks. The teller asked me to complete a federal form. I refused, so the Womanager herself came out. I asked why I had to fill out a federal form to buy a measly $2,000 worth of travelers� checks. She replied without irony, �You could be a drug smuggler.� My wife thought my new identity was amusing, but I was offended. A drug smuggler with only $2,000 really needs to think about another line of work.
When I walk into banks in other countries, they suspect nothing. They treat me like a customer. They don�t assume I am a drug smuggler. Of course, if I were to dump bags of cocaine on their desks, they would probably wonder, but since I don�t do that, they don�t. These are banks every bit as physically impressive as our own, run much more sensibly.
Of course, while the (in)famous families that rule America routinely go offshore, Washington has assiduously tried to create the impression that offshore is illegal for you. Consider that I am not talking about elaborate structures designed to hide something. I am not at all talking about going offshore to avoid paying a tax the law says you legally owe. Of course you must pay such a tax. I am talking about after-tax funds.
I am talking about protecting yourself with something as simple as a foreign bank account and maybe foreign CDs. Needless to say, whatever you get should be in a different currency, such as the Swiss franc. Start with that. It isn�t as difficult as it now may seem. You can do more later.
If you don�t know what to do, find someone who does. We are talking about a relationship as intimate as the one with your doctor and lawyer, so you need to find someone in whom you have considerable trust. Of course, you would pay that person a fee for arranging what you need. You may not even need to leave the United States to arrange this and once you get started you will wonder why you ever thought it was forbidding.
will be happy you did it when a loaf of bread costs $100.

Alan Stang was one of Mike Wallace�s original writers at Channel 13 in New York, where he wrote some of the scripts that sent Mike to CBS. Stang has been a radio talk show host himself. In Los Angeles, he went head to head nightly with Larry King, and, according to Arbitron, had almost twice as many listeners. He has been a foreign correspondent. He has written hundreds of feature magazine articles in national magazines and some fifteen books, for which he has won many awards, including a citation from the Pennsylvania House of Representatives for journalistic excellence. One of Stang�s expos�s stopped a criminal attempt to seize control of New Mexico, where a gang seized a court house, held a judge hostage and killed a deputy. The scheme was close to success before Stang intervened. Another Stang expos� inspired major reforms in federal labor legislation.
His first book, It�s Very Simple: The True Story of Civil Rights, was an instant best-seller. His first novel, The Highest Virtue, set in the Russian Revolution, won smashing reviews and five stars, top rating, from the West Coast Review of Books, which gave five stars in only one per cent of its reviews.
Stang has lectured in every American state and around the world and has guested on many top shows, including CNN�s Cross Fire. Because he and his wife had the most kids in Santo Domingo, the Dominican Republic, where they lived at the time, the entire family was chosen to be actors in �Havana,� directed by Sydney Pollack and starring Robert Redford, the most expensive movie ever made (at the time). Alan Stang is the man in the ridiculous Harry Truman shirt with the pasted-down hair. He says they made him do it.
The obvious question arises: Is this the emergency we have been awaiting, the manufactured emergency that could trigger the martial law for which Boosh is lusting?
