Many of us are taught that the Constitution of the United States is the law of the land. Unfortunately, the Constitution has been ignored, deemed not reasonable in the 21st century and otherwise become irrelevant in the way congress has acted for the past 160 years. The desecration of our Original Constitution by Congresses past manipulations to circumvent certain articles has opened up a Pandora’s Box of contingencies that are little known by the American public. All of which continues to enrich the Power Brokers to control the destinies of countless millions of American’s.
In the areas of finance is where the American citizen has been and continues to be at the mercy of governmental intrusion. A government that has stripped away to many of our liberties and freedoms. Now we are faced with a quandary about the Constitutionality of not only the US dollar but the ever encroaching cyber currencies like the Bitcoin and other cyber type currencies. Ever since 1934 when Congress amended Section 16 of the Federal Reserve Act the US dollar was stripped of it’s backing of gold. And, ever since 1960 the dollar was stripped of it’s backing of silver. So now the US dollar is Fiat money, meaning the only backing of our currency is the faith of the US government.
When we put all this together the currency to the US, the dollar is now void of any unilateral backing and therefore is Unconstitutional by acts of Congress. In other words congress has taken it upon themselves to amend and pass legislation that clearly circumvents the intent of our founding and our Constitution. We also have to remember that when the Federal Reserve Act was passed in 1913 Congress did so without Constitutional authority to do so. Now, our currency is only backed up by what is called Government – Sponsored Enterprise. This is a quasi-government entity established again by Congress to enhance the flow of credit to specific sectors of the US economy. Fannie Mae, Goldman Sacs and Freddie Mac are all examples of government – sponsored enterprises.
What Congress has done through the years has created smoke and mirrors financial entities. All of which have now created the greatest wealth disparity gap in history, created the greatest national debt in history and fostered not one Great Depression but several depression type economic catastrophes that have left a sobering realization that had Congress acted in good faith by adhering to the Constitution many of our current monetary crisis would have been avoided. Instead we are left with a nation that is on the verge of the greatest financial disaster in history. All because Congress failed to abide by the Original Constitution.
The history of this nation is being written in the annals of debt that has become almost to insurmountable. There have been two critical factors that have derailed the sovereignty and stability of the United States. In all our recorded history of over 200 years this nation has seen only small periods where our armed forces were not engaged in some conflict or another somewhere around the globe. From the time of John F. Kennedy’s death all the way up to today the national debt has continued to climb. There are two important factors as to why this nation still can’t grasp the concept of elimination of our now catastrophic national debt. A nation at war and a nation that relies on the creation of money by privately owned banks like the Federal Reserve Board are the most ruthless ingredients to incur massive debt.
In two distinct periods in our history has a sitting President tried to empower the public while reigning in the Nations debt. One during a time of the greatest internal struggle for national preservation namely the Civil War and another were we were headed into one of the greatest challenges that perplexed a nation primarily the Vietnam conflict. In 1861 President Lincoln needed money to continue to fund the Civil War. Bankers at the time were charging over 28% interest. Rather than pay up that high interest Lincoln pressed congress to authorize the Treasury Department to print full legal tender treasury notes [this is what the Constitution originally implied with no interest attached] to pay for the costs incurred form the war. When congress passed this legislation Lincoln stated ” We gave the people of this republic the greatest blessing they ever had. Their own paper money to pay their own debts.” Thus Greenbacks became the name this currency was called. To Lincoln’s credit the passage of the Merrill Tariff Revenue Act in 1861 along with establishment of the first ever income tax, a flat 3% on incomes above $800 [today equates to $19,000] all increased financial revenue to fund the Civil War.
Lincoln’s troubles began almost from the time he took office. By 1862 congress repealed the flat tax and instead established what was to become the basis of the complex tax system that we have today. A more progressive tax structure putting more of a burden on the less wealthy. Another set back was the National Bank Act of 1862. This act let banks become national in that they are charted by the Federal Government and authorized to issue interest bearing notes secured by Government bonds similar to what Alexander Hamilton did after the Revolutionary War in the creation of the First Bank of America. Passage of this bill ensured a market for the Federal Debt since the new National Banks would now be required to buy those bonds.
Had the National Bank Act failed to pass Congress Lincoln’s stressed that “Money is a creature of Law and the original issue should be maintained by the exclusive monopoly of national government. the Government should stand behind it’s currency, credit, and bank deposits of this nation. No individual should suffer a loss of money through depreciation or inflated currency or bank bankruptcy;” would have benefited the American public in a time of great uncertainty. Look what happened in 2008 with the Federal Reserve Bank running the show. Millions of our citizens suffered great financial loss. All the Federal Reserve does is loan money to the government at interest. What drives up our national debt higher are privately owned banks, the Federal Reserve, and a nation that continues to be engaged in armed conflicts anywhere in the world.
The London Times in 1863 who favored the Bank of England’s monetary policies wrote ” If that mischievous financial policy, which had it’s origin the North American Republic, should become indurate down to a fixture, then that Government will furnish it’s own money without cost. I will pay off debts and be without a debt. It will have all the money necessary to carry on it’s commerce. It will become prosperous beyond precedent in the history of the civilized government of the world. The brains and the wealth of all the countries will go to North America. That government must be destroyed or it will destroy every monarchy on the globe.” The wealth of the United States is in the hands of the private bankers not the American public. It is no wonder that the English were trying to help the Confederacy. When Lincoln issued the Emancipation Proclamation in 1863 the British populace who were opposed to slavery quietly withdrew their support of the Confederacy while Russia grew more supportive of the Union cause which helped the North and Lincoln preserve the Union.
In repealing the greenback law congress passed the National Bank Act in it’s place. All national banks were to be privately owned and the national bank notes they issued were to be interest bearing. The National Bank Act also provided that the greenbacks be returned as soon as possible as they came back in the payment of taxes. A hundred years later the United States Treasury Department computed the amount of interest that would have been paid if 400 million dollars would have been borrowed at interest instead of being issued by Abraham Lincoln. Because of the greenback resolution the United States Government saved 4 billion dollars in interest. President Lincoln followed the exact interpretation of the United States Constitution by the government creating it’s own money interest free.
More recent President Kennedy in 1963 almost one hundred years after Lincoln undertook the gauntlet of reducing our national debt again following the Constitution issued Executive order 11110. This order circumvents the Federal Reserve Bank and makes possible the Federal Government not the banks print interest free money. In 1963 the Treasury Department under President Kennedy issued $4,292,893,825 interest free money. What is so startling is that not long after Kennedy’s death all the United States notes, which Kennedy had issued, were called out of circulation.
The only time in the history of the United States that our National Debt was eliminated occurred when Andrew Jackson stopped the charter of the Bank Of America in the 1830′s. Today just imagine the trillions of dollars saved by interest free currency if the Treasury followed the Constitution. The Debt of this nation starts with the elimination of interest on the currency used. Reinstating the gold standard where one dollar is secured with a dollars worth of gold is one way to start. Another is what President Kennedy was trying to accomplish gave the Treasury the authority to issue silver certificates against any silver bullion, silver, or standard of silver dollars in the US treasury. Now, in 2021 the United States is still operating under the Federal Reserve System. A system that is arguably most instrumental in contributing to this countries trillions of dollars in federal debt. There is more truth in what Abraham Lincoln once said that is so true today “There can be no peace without justice, and there can be no justice without a reform of our economic system, for the financiers are behind most of the corruption in our Government.”
