DID YOU KNOW THAT THE US CONSTITUTION HAS BEEN SUSPENDED VIA FAKE WARS FOR 70 YEARS

People in the US have no idea the games that have been played AGAINST them by the corporation of the United States which came into being in 1871. Few people understand that Nixon got rid of the gold standard which is what has lead to unfettered inflation for decades. The fact is that this country has been mismanaged by a small group of deceitful greedy people--most of whom already had more money than any body else, but were so greedy that they had to have more.

THURS EST

*************************

The Bretton Woods Agreement held gold at $22.00 per fine troy ounce.

In 1971 Nixon unilaterally canceled the Bretton Woods system and stopped the direct convertibility of the United States dollar to gold
In 1971 more and more dollars were being printed in Washington, then being pumped overseas, to pay for the nation's military expenditures and private investments. In the first six months of 1971, assets for $22 billion fled the United States.

Because of the excessive printing of paper dollars, and the negative balance of U.S. trade, other nations were increasingly demanding fulfillment of America's "promise to pay". That is, they were demanding gold from the U.S. in exchange for paper dollars. France, in particular, made heavy and repeated demands and acquired large amounts of gold in that manner.

1933 GLASS STEAGALL ACT prohibited banks from owning property etc., etc., etc.

1933 Emergency War Powers allowed the confiscation of gold and assets from those individuals who supported Adolph Hitler's Third Reich, the exclusion of American Citizens is contained within the first two sections.

The U.S. HOUSE AND SENATE, THE LEGISLATORS, JUDICIARY, PRESIDENT ARE BY "OATH" SWORN TO UPHOLD, PROTECT AND DEFEND THE CONSTITUTION AGAINST ALL PARTIES FOREIGN AND DOMESTIC.

WHAT EVER POSSESSED THE U.S. HOUSE AND SENATE ETALS TO ALLOW THE FOLLOWING?
Per 1973 US Senate: Constitution has been suspended for 40 (now 78) years.

1973 US Senate Report 93-549

"A majority of the people of the United States have lived all of their lives under emergency rule. For 40 years [now 78 years], freedoms and governmental procedures guaranteed by the Constitution have, in varying degrees, been abridged by laws brought into force by states of national emergency. The problem of how a constitutional democracy reacts to great crises, however, far antedates the Great Depression. As a philosophical issue, its origins reach back to the Greek city-states and the Roman Republic. And, in the United States, actions taken by the Government in times of great crises have - from, at least, the Civil War - in important ways, shaped the present phenomenon of a permanent state of national emergency."

THIS BEING THE CASE; WHEN THE DINAR FUNDS DOES THIS "UNILATERAL" [ONE PARTY] EXECUTIVE ORDER KICK IN?
New Executive Order: "Obama Has Just Given Himself the Authority to Seize Your Assets"

On Monday the U.S. government took steps to seize the US-based assets of Russian lawmakers and anyone else that the US government deemed complicit in supporting the Crimean secession movement.

We've seen the U.S. government do this in countless cases surrounding drug and financial crimes, and sometimes even against foreign leaders like Saddam Hussein and Manuel Noriega.

What makes this particular instance so unprecedented and terrifying is that President Obama went so far as to issue a new Executive Order to give himself the authorization to do so, because the laws of the United States are such that our government is not allowed to simply take someone's bank assets, home or business without due process.

Here's the kicker.

The new Executive Order doesn't just apply to just Russians or foreigners. It gets blanket coverage, so even American citizens could now face asset forfeiture if their actions are deemed to be "contributing to the situation in the Ukraine."

Be careful what you say. Be careful what you write. President Obama has just given himself the authority to seize your assets.

According to the president's recent Executive Order, "Blocking Property of Certain Persons Contributing to the Situation in Ukraine" (first reported by WND's Aaron Klein), the provisions for seizure of property extend to "any United States person." That means "any United States citizen, permanent resident alien, entity organized under the laws of the United States or any jurisdiction within the United States (including foreign branches), or any person in the United States."

Via: The Ron Paul Institute

Like most Executive Orders and government legalese, the definitions for why an individual would have their assets seized under this directive are extremely broad and they could, for all intents and purposes, be used against anyone who supports Russian interests, or simply argues against those of the United States.

You can read the full Executive Order at the White House web site. The key points are noted below:

All property and interests in property that are in the United States, that hereafter come within the United States, or that are or hereafter come within the possession or control of any United States person (including any foreign branch) of the following persons are blocked and may not be transferred, paid, exported, withdrawn, or otherwise dealt in: any person determined by the Secretary of the Treasury, in consultation with the Secretary of State:

(i) to be responsible for or complicit in, or to have engaged in, directly or indirectly, any of the following:

(A) actions or policies that undermine democratic processes or institutions in Ukraine;

(B) actions or policies that threaten the peace, security, stability, sovereignty, or territorial integrity of Ukraine; or

(C) misappropriation of state assets of Ukraine or of an economically significant entity in Ukraine

This new Executive Order has crossed a very dangerous line. It's one that turns the notions of property rights and due process upside down by effectively bypassing the U.S. Constitution.

While we're sure the President and his staff would argue that such a law would never be used against Americans who are protected by free speech, the fact is that the Executive Branch now believes it has the self-manifested authority to target any individual who engages in activities that undermine US interests abroad or at home.

If a President of the United States believes he has the authority to make it illegal for you to provide support to Russia by way of political commentary, charitable donations or other methods, could he also use similar directives to push forward other agendas?

President Obama has already re-authorized an E.O. giving him the ability to seize farms, food, processing plants, energy resources, transportation, and skilled laborers during national emergency.

The next Executive Order could come in the form of restrictions on firearms advocacy or target those who speak out against policies like government mandated health care. All it would take is the declaration of a national emergency and they can essentially do as they please.

Is it prudent to give a single person the ability to force such actions down the throats of the American people without Congressional oversight or Judicial review?
