ARIZONA LEGALIZES GOLD AND SILVER AS CURRENCY
Yesterday, you'll recall, I blogged about my high octane speculation, or perhaps one might even call it a high octane suspicion, that the human trafficking scandals that have erupted in almost every country of the west and which have spilled over into other countries, might be a large component of what I have been calling a hidden system of finance. And as China, Russia, and other nations of the BRICSA bloc have been buying up bullion, and negotiated bi-lateral currency and trading agreements, something else has been happening, quietly, and far from the attentions of the lamestream presstitutes of the corporate controlled globaloney media. And no, I'm not talking about the efforts of Germany or other countries to repatriate, and get an accurate audit, of their gold reserves on deposit in foreign central banks.
I'm talking about the quiet "revolt of the states" taking place in the USSA.
The Empire of the United States is in a bit of an economic quandry, for it doesn't make much that other people want to buy any more. Agriculture remains one of the USSA's primary non-military exports, but much of that food supply is now tainted with GMO products, and the growing revolt against them around the world might conceivably dent that in the future. Other than this, America doesn't export much that other people want to buy. If one has a few billion dollars of pocket change laying around, then one might want to buy an aircraft carrier, but increasingly, with new and much less expensive Russian missile technologies about to come into operational use, these big behemoths might end up being nothing but "missile magnets," as a US Navy friend of mine put it to me once during a recent conversation. Tanks? Well, Germany has an equivalent one, so why feed your hard earned defense dollars to the American beast when you can feed it to the smaller German beast? And for that matter, Russia has a better tank than either the USSA or Germany. They probably aren't selling, but at least you can try.
What about energy? Natural gas and such? Well, the USSA's sanctions game with Russia has as its unstated and hidden goal the sale of energy to Europe, a nice way to keep those pesky Frenchmen and Germans under the American thumb. The problem there is, it's more expensive than getting it from Russia, and the Germans are, understandably, not too happy about that. Even Frau Merkel woke up from her multicultural slumber long enough to tell her lackey, Mr. Junker, to express some profound displeasure. Go back to sleep now, Angela. All is well, Europe continues to crumble.
Aircraft? Well, sure, for a few tens of millions, one might want to buy an F-35. Trouble is, its performance is far below what was touted making it an expensive waste. How about a very expensive Aegis class missile frigate? The problem there is, obsolescent Russian Sukhoi fighters appear to be able to turn them off, completely. What about a nice Patriot anti-missile system? The problem there is, the new class of Russian ICBMs can defeat it, since they can change flight paths even in the descent stage, as can their 24 MIRVed warheads. But fortunately, the never-to-be-trusted-always-Byzantinely-scheming-Russians aren't selling that on the open market. ("Park it in my back yard, guys. Thanks!")
As all this is happening, I recently blogged about the Pentagram study that acknowledged that, yes, since 9/11, everyone in the world has pretty much had it with the USSA's unipolarism. Their solution? Double down: more arms, more militarization of the American economy, and, of course, more surveillance of Americans.
Perhaps the Pentagram's study was motivated by the growing revolt of American states against the cultural and political swamp of psychopathy that Washington, District of Cesspool, has become. It's a story we've covered here before: more and more state legislatures are passing resolutions recognizing bullion as legal Constitutional tender. Texas took an even bigger, bolder step, by creating a state bullion depository, a move which was followed by discussions of similar measures in Utah.
Now, Arizona joins, according to this article shared by Mr. B.H. (copy and paste into your browser):
The backing of the USSA's Federal Reserve notes is, of course, nothing but American military power. And if that military power is increasingly looking like a "risky" investment to foreign nations, then the dollar's days as a reserve currency are numbered. And some American states are seeing this, and acting. Hence, the Pentagram's recent study might be casting a nervous glance, not on foreign violence, or even random domestic violence, but at the growing movement of quiet revolt in the states themselves.
... it makes one think, just for a moment, that it was a shame General Beauregard didn't march into Washington, as some of his subordinate commanders urged him to do after the First Battle of Bull Run, but in any case, with all the new and abhorrent human trafficking going on, one wonders if, in fact, the South really did win...
See you on the flip side...

A public solution…?
es ist verboten!!!
And there is Arizona ITSELF. The home of (rediscovered) monatomic gold.
And the “Phoenix lights” which, whatever they were, certainly suggest large scale breakaway goings-on.
A better approach in all 50 states would be “Public Banking.
North Dakota is a shining example. When all the states were in the red, North Dakota was issuing checks to its citizens via its public bank. They were solidly in the black.
Public Banking Purposed In Arizona:
The main problem is who would be the real masters of the World if balkanization became the norm around. the World. Cui Bono think of it tribes with nukes and other weapons of mass destruction and no real power not even within it’s assume borders. The power would remain behind the curtains and in the shadows except more so who in the end would be the real masters without any accountability.
Aircraft carriers are the greatest white elephants in the military. I was in the Navy in the early 70’s. The word at that time was an aircraft carrier would last 15 minutes in case a real war erupted. Now that time is less than 10 minutes. They are good for diplomacy (limited) only. In the age of missiles they are sitting ducks. A truly humongous waste of money. Might as well build a fleet of battleships. They should paint them all white and put a giant elephant on the side. Hubris, thy name is US gubment.
Agree and disagree. They are easily-tracked and sinkable targets, true. However, these days, they are used as ‘brinksmanship’ pieces. Since sinking a “Battlestar Galactica” would immediately bring-on at least a local war, the PTB are gambling (with sailors’ lives) that the opposing nation will NOT go hot against a carrier. So far, this strategy has worked. Portable airfields are ‘sacrosanct’…
Brilliant. Next natural step is local currency, TexasCoin. Everybody wants gold backed money. Demand will skyrocket, as the dollar deflates into obscurity of Washington’s Weimar Republic. Everybody should be allowed to monitor their part of the bullion life on the internet, with a baby camera on their gold coins.
If I were a military man, I would prefer to get paid in gold backed TexasCoins. He who pays the piper gets a hired gun. Lead for gold in Texas town!
Why would gold have any particular value for long? It’s easy enough to make in quanity from copper, that method has been known for at least 90 years.
Though this kind of more than suggests sarcasm on your part:
“with a baby camera on their gold coins.”
Whenever were they not?
Just because you outlaw something doesn’t make it so. A truth always to keep in mind in our current Matrix of Lies ™ world.
The Empire is bankrupt and corrupted beyond all saving, the fiat parasites have sucked the vitality from the economy and the rentier parasitism and police state oppression are ramping up in tandem to alarming levels. So the states, which still largely have legislatures responsive to the will of the voters, start to become queasy and uneasy, making Plan Bs and checking the swiftest path to the door if it ever comes to that. And if things keep going as they’re going (and how on earth are they going to be reversed?) it will.
“The backing of the USSA’s Federal Reserve notes is, of course, nothing but American military power.”
Sure about that? Or perhaps what is power, military, or otherwise?
And as for gold, it’s easy enough to make in quantity in your kitchen. I’d posit there’s some equally simple method of making silver.
So Lost, how many millions are you worth then? If you are not worth millions, please finally can it with that “Oh yeah, you can make precious metals in your kitchen” BS.
@Lost – Please provide your source. You usually demand it if others.
I didn’t ask for a source in anything I posted here. I question whether the US is simply trading on “military might” as defined by aircraft carriers and cruise missiles, etc.
First to be clear: I said gold in one’s kitchen, better put with household chemicals that many have in the kitchen. Did not say precious metals–plural.
Second, and far more important, it’s well known what happens if you try to make money undermining “basic” physics. Specific to this kind of thing, sell more than a few thousand dollars of gold you make readily, and that’s the end of it. Read Barry Carter carefully on his friend Jim, albeit, don’t know if the story is still up and it does take a while to read–and at the end you’ll not find the formula for making rhodium out of the Nevada ethers.
Anyhow, it’s really not my great interest, just a formula I read some where, and since I had the ingredients…
The locked in “thinking” about the periodic chart, etc, is of far greater interest to me.
It would seem that a small Middle Eastern nation has pinned it hopes of being the future capitol of world government on the wrong nation, as globalization now appears to be following that one road to rule them all. Such a shame, as they have spent the last two hundred or so years infesting the West with their protocol driven agendas. They have overplayed their hand and too many see what is going on in the West and want no part of it for themselves. The West is dying of this cancer that has metastasized and is killing its host. It may be that radiation is the only treatment left, at this point.
Radiation to treat cancer — another bit of medical genius.
Well having sucked the US dry, the fiat parasites are moving on and trying to infect China now, making a deal to get the IMF in there and start feeding off them, too.
LOL, was thinking more in term of Russian launch codes and big red buttons.
Re. radiation (of any sort), what about a specific DNA-attacking virus. Anyone? Anyone? Aw someone round here must have watched 12Monkeys and learned chemical biology.
JPF: “Agriculture remains one of the USSA’s primary non-military exports, but much of that food supply is now tainted with GMO products…”
Much ‘conspiratorial’ talk has been about the PTB’s plans to humble, if not destroy, America – i.e., to sink-it to the point of not resisting globalization. In that regard, I could easily see the ‘tainting’ of crops as a deliberate Strategic goal, having nothing to do with Monsanto’s profit or market share…
(I would add civilian aircraft – primarily Boeing – as one of the gems of American exports. So, in line with the above, it is not surprising to see a ‘subjugated’ Congress sabotaging export sales by shutting-down the Export–Import Bank of the United States – responsible for leveling the sales playing-field through offering equivalent interest rates as overseas sources. Even if EXIM is resurrected, overseas buyers may now shy-away from an uncertain capital-source in their planning. Well done, Congress…)
In line with Joseph’s pointing-out of intra-America turmoil, I would recommend a book: “The Nine Nations of North America by Joel Garreau (1981). It was riveting when I read it, and explained a lot. Also, I have just learned of a similar book, “American Nations: A History of the Eleven Rival Regional Cultures of North America” by Colin Woodard (2012).
Interesting (!) maps from the two books appear here:
Within the thesis of Joseph’s blog, I could easily see the PTB agitating along these ‘natural’ fault lines, similar to what they did to bring-on the American Civil War. (Do you actually think these bullion activities were done without ‘sanction’ from the top?) Whether the PTB will attempt to actually break-up America into smaller, easily-dealt-with ‘nations’ or they just desire to weaken the central authority through regional-agit ation remains to be seen…
Hey, Goshawks. You said, “Within the thesis of Joseph’s blog, I could easily see the PTB agitating along these ‘natural’ fault lines, similar to what they did to bring-on the American Civil War.” It’s refreshing to see someone who does not accept the official narrative of this period in our history. We might not always agree with details but the two of us could have reasonable and hearty discussions and remain respectful of each other. I have always thought the USSA labor management policies were imposed by financiers at the federal level to leverage soft human trafficking and slavery as the economic machine of industry. The technics changed from slavery and indentured service to open borders and free immigration, but the strategies are always the same! And it’s always the same peoples pushing them.
OC, thanks and back at ya. Within my original profession, aerospace engineering, I knew something of that nature was going-on. Several fellow graduating-engineers were unable to obtain jobs, because US companies would go overseas and recruit engineers at much-reduced salaries. The H-1B Visa ‘guestworker program’ scandal. Those companies would lobby Congress to allow vastly-expanded overseas recruitment, while lying through their teeth that there were no qualified individuals in the States to hire. I had several friends doing the equivalent of working at McDon’s because of that corporate SCAM…
Markets have pushed the idea that bullion has a “price” in dollars or other central bank debt instruments. But the opposite valuation will be made increasingly: today, for example, 100 USD (which used to seem like a lot of money) = 0.0789 ounces of gold. This would be the size of a tiny bead.
