The Israel Deception

Is the return of Israel in the 20th century truly a work of God, or is it a result of a cosmic chess move to deceive the elect by the adversary?

Texas now joins in on the rebellion as legislature submits bill to make gold and silver legal tender

2017 has been a watershed year so far for states desiring to break away (rebel) from irresponsible fiscal policies out of Washington, and diabolical monetary policies issued by the central bank.  By this we mean that more and more states are looking hard at the potential of having gold and silver as money in the wake of rising inflation and a devaluing dollar.

So far three states have either submitted or passed legislation allowing for the metals to once again be recognized and accepted as Constitutional money, and now we can add a fourth as the great state of Texas is currently debating a new bill to allow gold and silver to become once again legal tender.

A bill introduced in the Texas Senate would establish gold and silver as legal tender in Texas. Passage of the bill would create currency competition in the state and serve to undermine the Federal Reserve’s monopoly on money. 
Sen. Bob Hall introduced Senate Bill 2097 (SB2097) on March 10. The bill includes a number of provisions to establish gold and silver as legal tender in Texas. It declares specifically that  certain gold and silver coins are legal tender, and prohibits any tax, charge, assessment, fee, or penalty on any exchange of Federal Reserve notes (dollars) for gold or silver. The bill authorizes the payment of taxes and fees in gold & silver in certain circumstances. It would also prohibit the seizure of gold or silver by state authorities. SB2097 also included provisions relating to gold and silver clauses in contracts, prohibiting payment in dollars if the contract calls for payment in gold and silver. Legally enforcing these contracts through state law would serve to encourage their use. 
Along with the establishment of a Texas gold depository authorized in 2015, passage of SB2097 would set in place all four steps states can take to encourage sound money and take on the Federal Reserve. - 10th Amendment Center
Ironically Texas had already forged ahead with another important step towards allowing gold and silver to be used as legal tender prior to SB2097 when they created a gold depository a few years back, and ordered gold owned by the state's university system to be repatriated from the Federal Reserve.  And in fact they, along with Utah, are the only current states to have either a public or private depository to hold gold for use in commerce.

Make Money Great Again: Petition to have government cease taxation on purchases of gold and silver

Alasdair Macleod is a long time precious metal analyst, and relative of a former Chancellor of the Exchequer (equivalent of U.S. Treasury Secretary) in Britain.  And just a few days ago he created a petition for Donald Trump, the newly election U.S. President, to sign an executive order eliminating taxes on the purchase of physical gold and silver.

Calling the movement Make Money Great Again (MMGA), Macleod believes this is the first step in changing the environment for gold and silver to return to being real money from its current status simply as a commodity, and open the door for it to become a part of the monetary system once more as originally deigned in the Constitution.

Make Money Great Again: Vote for Gold
THE PETITION: MAKE MONEY GREAT AGAIN 
We The People request the new administration Make Money Great Again; that gold and silver may freely be used as money alongside United States dollars. 
The Constitution explicitly recognizes gold and silver as money. We therefore petition that:
  1. All tax discrimination against gold and silver must cease, including the removal of all capital gains tax on holdings of, and transactions in gold and silver, and;
  1. That all impediments to using gold and silver as constitutionally-recognized money be removed.
We Petition the Administration to sign this Executive Order to Make Money Great Again. - MMGA
Making money great again by eliminating taxes on gold and silver is already occurring at many state levels, including a recent bill being brought to the House floor in the coming days in the state of Virginia.  And as this movement continues to grow at the local level, it will put more pressure on the Federal government to re-institute gold and silver as part of our overall monetary system.

In the 2016 Presidential election, the business of journalism is… business

For those who actually learned a little about history, the Constitution, and the value of journalism as a checks and balance on government power, they will be shocked to find out that at the upcoming Republican and Democratic conventions, news reporting on the presidential campaigns will be sold to the highest bidder.
Forget the fact that media outlets like Fox News, MSNBC, and CBS have made a small fortune on ad revenues sold by covering Donald Trump since their viewership’s have skyrocketed just to try to catch a glimpse of the ultimate outsider.  No, in today’s corporate media, where journalism is all about ratings, sensationalism, and profits, a new report out on July 4th no less finds that several publications will be demanding payment from the newsmakers themselves to run articles and features during the Republican and Democratic conventions.

Political prisoner and father of financier Peter Schiff dies in prison

Irwin Schiff was the ultimate political prisoner for his work in educating the American people on their legal rights regarding the unlawful taxation practices of the United States government.  And after spending 10 years in prison simply because he refused to stop talking about the Constitution and people’s rights, on Oct. 19 the father of well known financier Peter Schiff died while being shackled to a prison hospital bed.
Schiff had done nothing to harm the American people, nor did he commit any crime that was detrimental to the nation, but instead was imprisoned because he became a threat to the fascist state the U.S. had become, and threatened the illegal financial schemes of a government that relied upon the fleecing of its citizens to protect its own power.

While Congress waffles, 17 states decide to go to court over Obama’s immigration order

Despite the complete turnover in both Houses of Congress since 2010, the Republican led leadership has become little more than a limp dishrag when it comes to challenging the Constitutionality and legality of Barack Obama’s immigration programs.  But in a move that shows that many states have become extremely fed up with the political shenanigans in Washington, 17 of them signed on for a joint lawsuit condemning Obama’s most recent Executive Proclamation allowing for mass amnesty, and are seeking to have it overturned in the Supreme Court.

Connecticut becomes first state to suspend Constitution over Ebola scare

Even though the first cases of Ebola in the U.S. were in states not located near New York and Washington D.C., it appears the liberal bastion that rules the Northeast corridor of America is having little regard for the Constitution and individual liberties as the state of Connecticut on Oct. 10 has just suspended an important protection from the Bill of Rights, and decreed that anyone even thought to potentially have Ebola will be quarantined and isolated from the rest of society.

An argument agains both the Flat and Fair Tax proposals

Under the original foundation of the Constitution, taxes were primarily received through tarrif and excise taxes on goods coming and going from the American shores.  Control over these tax receipts was how the Port of New York became such a powerful entity, that its administrator, Chester Arthur, was elected President of the United States.

This all changed in 1913 with the advent of the Federal Reserve, and the passage of the 16th Amendment (Income Tax).

Since that time, the government has used taxation to increase tax revenues and receipts on the American people to now many citizens pay over 50% of their income in property, sales, excise, to the state and federal governments.

Over the past decade, grassroot organizations that sought to eliminate the 1913 system and incorporate a new tax structure that they consider fairer, and more in tune with original Constitutional taxation.  Two of these tax proposals are the Fair Tax and the Flat Tax.

A new look at both of these taxes by Lew Rockwell shows that each proposal has major flaws, and still do not address the nation going back to the original freedoms and liberties built into the Constitution.

Two specific tax reform plans that many conservatives and some libertarians have fallen for are the Flat Tax and the FairTax. Both plans promise to invigorate the economy, increase employment, and raise everyone’s standard of living. But neither one is true to its name, and neither one is an incremental step toward lower overall taxes. Both are fraught with problems and contradictions, and both are revenue-neutral plans that would fund the federal government at the same obscene level that it is now.

The Flat Tax is an income tax. It is the tax-reform idea that has been around the longest. First proposed by economist Milton Friedman in 1962, the Flat Tax entered the mainstream through a
1981 Wall Street
Journal article by Hoover Institution economists Robert Hall and Alvin Rabushka called "A Proposal to Simplify Our Tax System."

Under a flat tax, everyone’s income is taxed at the same rate (Hall and Rabushka say 19 percent; Forbes says 17 percent). But not only are there no tax brackets, there are generally no tax deductions either, other than those for personal and dependent allowances. Social Security and Medicare taxes would remain as they are now. The appeal of the Flat Tax is simplicity. You can do your taxes on a postcard-sized form says Forbes. Goodbye anxiety and compliance costs.

The main problem with the Flat Tax is a simple one: the Flat Tax is not flat. And furthermore, no one actually pays 19 or 17 percent. In fact, taxpayers don’t even pay the same percentage. The Flat Tax is actually a highly progressive tax. It is more progressive than our current system, and effectively has more tax brackets. Who said progressivity requires graduated tax rates?

The FairTax is a consumption tax. It is the most radical tax reform plan, bar none. It also has the most vocal and intolerant proponents. The FairTax is the brainchild of three businessmen concerned about the crippling effects on the economy of the federal tax code.

The FairTax is a national retail sales tax of 30 percent on the final sale of all new goods and services. All new goods are included - from cars and houses to prescription drugs and food. And with the exception of college tuition, all services are included - from heart operations and funerals to rent and haircuts. Purchases for business purposes would be exempt. Because it would replace the personal income tax, there would also no longer be withholding tax, capital gains tax, the alternative minimum tax, or taxes on interest and dividends. Even your gambling winnings would no longer be taxed.

So why is the FairTax not fair? Well, first of all, what’s fair about a consumption tax? Why is it that people who rightly criticize the income tax are so quick to accept a national sales tax on consumption? The FairTax perpetuates the fallacy that the government has a right to confiscate a percentage of the value of each new good sold and every service rendered. This is no different than claiming that the government has a right to the portion of each American’s income. As the late economist Murray Rothbard explained:

The consumption tax, on the other hand, can only be regarded as a payment for permission-to-live. It implies that a man will not be allowed to advance or even sustain his own life, unless he pays, off the top, a fee to the State for permission to do so. The consumption tax does not strike me, in its philosophical implications, as one whit more noble, or less presumptuous, than the income tax. - Lew Rockwell
In the end, neither tax proposal seeks to take America back to the original foundation of taxation, and the freedom and liberties of people to choose their income levels, and income lifestyles.  Nations that seek the majority of their revenues from their own people, instead of stimulating success and taxing imports from other nations is in part what has led to our divided society, where the rich despise the welfare class, and the poor accuse the rich of being the creators of their problems.
