efore Barack Hussein Obama's social progressive minions pushed Obamacare through the far left US Congress, he made sure the impetus to rid the nation of its "double-dippers" was already in force. The Obama Death Board, officially known as the Federal Coordinating Council for Comparative Research, was adroitly concealed in the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act of 2009. Since this legislation was a money bill and not a healthcare bill, its job description sounds benign. It was supposed to. It's mandate, according the legal verbiage, is to "...assist the agencies of the federal government, including DHHS and the Department of Veterans Affairs...to coordinate comparative effectiveness and related health service research...The Council will consider the needs of the population served by federal programs."

Add to that the equally benign verbiage in Section 1311 of the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act of 2010 which gives the Secretary of Health and Human Services, and her appointees, the authority to establish medical guidelines which your doctor must follow or face penalties and fines. Included in those guidelines is a mandate which says that when surgical procedures and/or medications and/or other treatments are denied by the medical bureaucracy within the system, healthcare providers may not provide those services outside the system. (That is the reason Canadian citizens, who are denied treatment for whatever reason in Canada, come to the United States for lifesaving medical procedures. In other words, in Canada like the United States under Obamacare, when you get a real serious illness—even if it's not terminal—you're supposed to die. That way, the seniors themselves prevent the collapse of the old age benefits program.) Looking through the 1,100 page Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act of 2010 there appear to be a few missing pages. Missed not in the sense that pages are physically missing. Missing in the sense that content which should be there isn't.

Missing was the section of the legislation that created the Federal Coordinating Council for Comparative Research. The Federal Coordinating Council would ultimately be assigned the task of determining at what point it would be a waste of taxpayer money to treat patients construed to be terminal. The Obama Death Board, whose job it was to measure medical services return-on-investment, was not a part of the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act of 2010. It was enacted a year earlier as part of the American Recovery and Investment Act of 2009. It makes you wonder why a key ingredient to returning Social Security to solvency was enacted a full year before the healthcare act of which it would be a key ingredient. When government plans a sleight of hand, it obfuscates the transparency it always promises the voters by making sure the left hand of government never knows what the right hand is doing—even when the occupant of the White House promises the most transparent government in history.

When the federal government plans to steal from the people of the United States, it has a historic track record of concealing the theft in some innocuous, nondescript piece of legislation totally unrelated to the theft they are attempting to perpetuate. When government breaks up pieces of a pending law and surreptitiously buries those pieces, like pieces of a hard-to-solve jigsaw puzzle that the taxpayers are never supposed to solve, you have a government which has assumed for itself too much undelegated power. When government assumes for itself the right of arbitrator of life and death over the people, you have a government that needs to be replaced.

In 1933 when Franklin D. Roosevelt could not get the 73rd Congress to reintroduce the 58th Congress' proposed 18th Amendment to remove the country from the Gold Standard, FDR decided to simply ignore that inconvenience. On Tues., Jan. 30, 1934, Roosevelt signed the Gold Reserve Act of 1934 into law. The following day, through Presidential Proclamation 2072, he reduced the weight of the gold dollar from 25 4/5 grains to 15 5/21 grains. Gold was worth $35 ounce on Jan. 30, 1934, and on Jan. 31 is was worth $20.67— or a net loss of $14.33 per ounce. Where did the authority to do that come from? Congress embodied FDR during the "national emergency" that existed on March 6, 1933 when Roosevelt took office. One would logically think that the authority to artificially remove the nation from the gold standard would be found in a money bill—Gold Reserve Act of 1934, which he signed the day before. It wasn't. Nor was it found in the Emergency Banking Relief Act of March 9, 1933 which makes even more sense. It was inserted in Title 3 of the Thomas Amendment in the Agriculture Adjustment Act of May 12, 1933. When the authority to create fiat money from gold was cited in Proclamation 2072, the Agriculture Adjustment Act was never cited as the authority. The authority was cited only as Title 3 of the Act of May 12, 1993.

The illegal seizure of specie (legal tender gold coins and gold certificates) from US citizens was promulgated through Presidential Proclamation 2039 which authorized gold seizures under the Trading With the Enemy Act of Oct. 6, 1917 by criminalizing the private ownership of gold. Roosevelt's unconstitutional action was legalized with the passage of the Emergency Banking Relief Act of March 9, 1933, and the Gold Reserve Act of Jan. 30, 1934. The holding of gold remained illegal until the passage of Public Law 93-373 was enacted on Dec. 31, 1974. Since that date hundreds of companies specializing in the sale of both rare and common gold and silver coins have sprung up throughout the country and countless thousands of working class American citizens began buying investment-grade gold coins.

What is most interesting is that none of the working class investors who are buying gold coins to provide themselves with an inflation-proof retirement income not at the mercy of Wall Street, have never asked what would have been the first question I would have lobbed at whatever gold broker pitched me pre-FDR gold coins: "How is it possible, today, to purchase pre-1933 gold coins?"

When Roosevelt seized all gold coinage and the gold certificates owned by private United States citizens (excluding wealthy collectors), the government reported that all of the gold coins seized were melted down into bullion. Later, Roosevelt said he used the gold coins seized from the American people to pay off gold claims from Europe, stating that he saved about 25% of the value of the exchange of paper money for gold by doing so. Roosevelt lied.

Most of the seized coins ended up in the private vaults of America's wealthiest families who gladly exchanged their fiat dollars for gold. In other words, the 1927 St. Gaudin's $20 gold coins that were seized from your parents and grandparents in 1933 under the threat of a hefty fine and a prison sentence, are the same much-sought 1923 St. Gaudin's $20 gold coins you are buying today—for $2,195.00. Who knows—the gold coins in your safety deposit box (or sewn into your mattress) may be the same gold coins the government seized from your grandfather when Roosevelt assumed office in 1933. Rhetoric aside, it's a fact that the pre-1933 gold coins you are buying today are some of the same coins that were seized from American citizens by the federal government on March 9, 1933 and replaced by a fiat scrip backed only by the good intentions of government. Not seized were the gold and silver coins by recognized "collectors: (i.e., the exempted rich). In fact, the wealthy bankers who instigated the theft of the real wealth of the American people were the beneficiaries of the redistribution of wealth from the middle class to the rich just as Hitler's lieutenants during World War II were the recipients of the wealth stolen, first from the Jews and then, from all of the captive peoples of the Third Reich.

While Europe's courts demanded restitution from the German government for the theft of the generational wealth of those nations it conquered, no court has ever demanded that the United States government, which stole the constitutional money of its citizens in 1933 after first declaring them to be enemies of the government to justify the theft. Unlike the fictitious Don Corleone or the real Depression era John Dillinger or Bonnie Parker and Clyde Barrow, the dons and capos in the federal government don't have to use a gun when they rob the American people, They simply enact a law that uses legalese that says, "This is a stickup. Give us your money!" Foreigners holding post-1933 US federal reserve notes were still allowed to redeem that fiat scrip for gold at any Federal Reserve Bank until Aug. 15, 1971. On that date, President Richard M. Nixon permanently closed the gold window, ending the practice of gold redemption for scrip.

The Annunzio-Wylie Anti-Money Laundering Act of 1992 (resulting from the Bank of Credit & Commerce International [BCCI] drug-laundering scandal) led to an array of laws that authorized banks to spy on their customers which ultimately resulted in a law known as "Know Your Customer." Among the things banks were now required to "know" about their "customers" was how many of their "customers" were buying gold coins and/or bullion. In the event of a new gold seizure, the Secret Service (the Treasury's police force) need to know how much gold you own, and where to go to seize it.

Under "Know Your Customer"—Section 326 of the USA Patriot Act—gold brokers were required to report the sale of pre-1965 coins on IRS Form 8300, ostensibly to safeguard them from seizure in times of a national emergency. In reality, this provision is a double-edged sword since tracking gold transactions is a prelude to confiscation. In addition to tracking who owned what coins, Section 326 initially required gold brokers to report gold sale transactions of $10 thousand or more to the IRS. To avoid having their gold purchases scrutinized by the IRS, buyers began spacing out their purchases to stay off the IRS radar screen. The IRS responded by extending the window and collectively coupling purchases so that smaller gold purchases were grouped and reported as a single buy. The reporting threshold was later reduced, first to $5 thousand, then to $3,000.

What cannot currently be seized under current law are foreign gold coins except in the course of criminal cases or civil litigation, or by the IRS for nonpayment of taxes. The most common seizures of gold and silver coins are in drug raids and money laundering and Racketeer Influenced and Corrupt Organizations Act (RICO) (The Organized Crime Control Act of 1970, Public Law 91-452, 84 Stat 922, Sec. 901[a] cases. RICO is one of most the unconstitutional laws ever enforced by the federal courts because it denies the accused of due process before seizure takes place by allowing the US Attorney who plans to prosecute those accused of seizing their assets before charges are filed and long before juries find the accused guilty of a crime.

By seizing the assets of those being investigated under RICO, the government intentionally makes it difficult for the accused to financially mount an adequate defense. In the case of the auto surf industry—one of the most profitable get-rich-quick multilevel marketing stratagems—the government used RICO to seize the operating capital of the autosurfers so they couldn't pay their subscribers, triggering fraud complaints by the subscribers which would then allow the government to pursue the autosurf owners with criminal charges. Federal law defines a ponzi scheme as an entity with no primary revenue stream other than the contributions of new members to pay existing members. By government's own definition, the Social Security system is now a ponzi scheme.

In other words, government does not play by the rules it makes. Which brings us back to gold. And, gold brings us back to Franklin D. Roosevelt and Section 5(b) of the Emergency Banking Relief Act of 1933. Amending Section 5(b) retrofitted the Trading With the Enemy Act to construe the People to be enemies of the government, thus allowing the government to seize the gold that was legally-owned by the citizens of the United States moments before Roosevelt signed Presidential Proclamation 2039. With the stroke of his pen, FDR criminalized the private ownership of what was "legal tender money" just before he scribbled his name on his illegal edict.

What made Presidential Proclamation 2039 illegal? This clause in Presidential Proclamation 2039: "Whereas it is provided in Section 5(b) of the Act of October 6, 1917 (40 Stat. L.413) as amended, That the President may investigate, regulate, or prohibit under such rules and regulations as he may prescribe, by means of licenses or otherwise, any transactions in gold or silver coin or bullion or currency***..." Section 5(b), as amended, of the Trading With the Enemy Act allowed the president, at his discretion, to seize the assets of enemies of the United States found within the United States. Exempted from the provision in the original legislation, were the citizens of the United States. At 12:00:01 a.m. on Mar. 6, 1933, 12 hours before he was sworn in as President of the United States, FDR issued Presidential Proclamation 2039. But, it was not until March 9, 1933 that Section 5(b) of the Trading With the Enemy Act of 1917 was amended. No provision in law existed on March 6 that allowed Roosevelt to seize the lawful money of the citizens of the United States.

What does that mean? It means you can't trust the federal government. Especially today. Do you remember when former House Speaker Nancy Pelosi prodded the loyal members of the Democratically-controlled House of Representatives in the 111th Congress to "...hurry up and vote on" the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act of 2010 so they could "...find out what's in it"? Well, now we know. It has a whole bunch of stuff in it not related to healthcare. Among those unrelated things was Section 9006 which covers the expansion of IRS reporting requirements that deals with, among other things, the purchase and/or sale of gold coins by amending the reporting requirements of Section 6041 of the Internal Revenue Code. Why would Congress insert a completely unrelated measure in Obamacare? With over 1,100 pages, where better to hide something you don't want found? Title 26 § 6041 of the IRS code changes the reporting requirements on transactions of $600.00 or more in any taxable year, which is considerably less than $3,000 per transaction.

Why is the US government so determined to track not only the gold coins you buy from your neighborhood numismatics dealer but any coins you might buy from, or sell to, someone off the Form 8300 radar screen? It would seem to me that we are about to experience our second government gold heist. Your first one, if you weren't around on March 9, 1933, happened when Roosevelt seized all gold coins and certificates..

We are close to personally witnessing what the American people experienced with the banker-instigated Stock Market Crash in October, 1929, and in March, 1933 when the same bankers orchestrated the gold crisis that led the gold seizure as the Roosevelt Administration, following the lead of Fed Chairman Eugene Meyers, confiscated the gold coins and gold certificates owned by the American working class. Under the penalty of a fine and prison sentence if they did not surrender their gold or gold certificates, they were forced to exchange their real money for fiat scrip guaranteed only by the promise of a brand new president who proved, even before he was sworn in, that he could not be trusted.

The greedmongers of Utopia are no different today than they were when they created the Bank Panic of 1907 to steal the wealth of the working class of the United States by creating a new, permanent central bank in the United States which, John Pierpont Morgan and the Money Mafia assured the American people that by creating a permanent central bank that financial crises like the Bank Panic of 1907 would never happen again.

And, the American people didn't believe them. Long before former Congressman and recently resigned Barack Obama Chief of Staff Rahm Emanuel said "never let a good crisis go to waste." From 1907 on, the princes of industry and the barons of banking contrived and created one financial crisis on top of another they to promulgate their economic agenda. They used each contrived crisis to bend the laws of the United States to achieve their personal objectives. Complicit in every crisis were the lawmakers on Pennsylvania Avenue in Washington, DC. who profited from the man-made crises that were never allowed to go to waste.

The crisis which started it all in 1907 was instigated by JP Morgan's completely fabricated rumors that the Knickerbocker Bank of New York was insolvent. The bank's depositors, who thought America's premiere banker would know the financial condition of every major bank in the country, started a self-fulfilling prophecy. The Knickerbocker Bank run spilled over into other New York banks and then, like the plague, it swept across the country sowing a path of destruction. Morgan achieved precisely what he intended to do. In the end, Morgan's "crisis" resulted in the passage of the Federal Reserve Act of 1913 and the fraudulent ratification of both the 16th and 17th Amendments.

Life Magazine reporter Frederick Allen reported in the Life's April 25, 1949 issue that historians concluded Morgan hirelings took advantage of the very unsettled conditions that existed in the fall of 1907 to "...precipitate the Panic, guiding it shrewdly as it progressed..." in order, they suggested, to kill off rival banks and consolidate weaker rival banks under their corporate umbrella. That was 1907. Leapfrog to 2007.

The economy of the United States was still growing in 2005. In fact, it was the first year since 1982 that not a single bank in the country failed. As late as the fall of 2006, regulators reported a healthy banking system with strong earnings, fast asset growth and robust capital indicators. Bank analyst, A.M. Best reported that "...the US banking industry entered 2006 in a relatively healthy condition." So healthy, in fact, that 2006 was the second consecutive year that no US banks failed. But hidden behind the public persona of personal bankers and community banks is a transnational shadow banking system controlled by the central banks of the world which never report their earnings—or their losses. The "financial crisis" the world was about to experience was their's.

Most economists would define what happened in the shadow banking system in 2007 as a fundamental bank run even though "they," as opposed to "it," could be termed as "sunspot runs" because there was nothing fundamental about what was happening. On the other hand, there was nothing "random" about the runs, either.

The crisis stemmed from banks in the emerging nations borrowing too much money from the largest banks in the industrialized world, and overextended themselves in their rush to build the 21st century infrastructure they had promised the princes of industry and the barons of business who, in turn, overextended themselves building new factories in the third world as they shuttered up old factories in the industrialized nations. The contagion mechanism that triggered the Financial Crisis of 2007 was too much demand for not enough money. For the first time in banking history, the world was on the precipice of a very real global, domino bank collapse caused by greedy men trying to remake the world economy overnight by redistributing the wealth of the industrialized nations to the human capital rich third world.

When that collapse happens, and it will, there will be a domino affect-impact that will realign the currencies of the world; and with it, what wealth is left in the hands of the working class will be stripped from them by law and surrendered to the "haves" who will then "have it all"—including dicatatorial control over the human capital of the world. And, the world will have come full circle From the feudal states of the pocket kingdoms of the 12th century when feudal lords ruled the serfs who were owned by them, to a global system of increasingly restrictive totalitarian socialism where the princes of industry and the barons of banking and business rule the human capital which, by law and deceit, will become their chattel in a new world order—without a middle class. Only workers and masters. Society's underclass, which served the politicians who pimped for the world's elites, will awaken one morning and discover the free ride is over. They will be forced to join the decadent working class, now earning far less than they enjoyed in the free enterprise system. In their awakening, the underclasss will discover the world their protests helped create will no longer tolerate protest because free speech will have evolved into sanctioned speech.

The die is cast. Those bent on the destruction of the free enterprise system are now too deeply entrenched to be stopped. While the time table of the New World Order may yet be delayed a few more years, it is—as the globalists have told us repeatedly—now inevitable. World government is the reality of the next decade. When America's citizen warriors are disarmed the walls of national sovereignty will fall like a house of cards and the totalitarian world of Big Brother will rise from the rubble. And the souls of the martyrs of America's historic past will cry out in despair.
