ADD IOWA AND WEST VIRGINIA TO THE GROWING REVOLT LIST

You can potentially add Iowa and West Virginia to the growing list of American states that are fed up with FedGov overreach, according to these two stories shared by W.G. (and I apologize for the first link and all the "garbage" that came with it, try as I might I just couldn't get rid of it):

Iowa Subcommittee Passes Bill that Could Set Stage to Reject Some Executive Orders

And the second story (with similar apologies):

West Virginia Legal Tender Act Would Treat Gold and Silver as Money

Respecting the first article, it is important to note that the proposed legislation is still in sub-committee and has not been brought to a full vote, nor signed into state law by the governor. But the context is nonetheless worth considering, for it is clear that the "final straw" was at least in part the planscamdemic and resulting FedGov overreach:

Rep. John Wills (R) introduced House Bill 2012 (HF2012) on Jan. 11. Under the proposed law, the legislative council would have the authority to review any executive order issued by the President of the United States, if the order “has not been affirmed by a vote of the Congress of the United States and signed into law, as prescribed by the Constitution of the United States.”

Upon a recommendation by the executive committee, the state attorney general would be required to review the executive order.  Under the law, the state, a political subdivision of the state, or an organization receiving public funds from the state, would be prohibited from implementing any executive order that the attorney general determines to be unconstitutional during the review.

The law covers executive orders that relate to any of the following:

  • A pandemic or other health emergency
  • The regulation of natural resources including coal and oil
  • The use of land
  • The regulation of the financial sector as it relates to environmental, social, or governance standards
  • The regulation of the constitutional right to keep and bear arms

On Jan. 27, a subcommittee of the House State Government Committee recommended passage of HF2012 by a 2-1 vote.

Turning to the other article, West Virginia is slated to become the latest state to pass legislation recognizing gold and silver bullion as "legal tender" in the state:

A bill filed in the West Virginia House would recognize gold and silver as legal tender in the state. The legislation would pave the way for West Virginians to use gold and silver in everyday transactions, a foundational step for the people to undermine the Federal Reserve’s monopoly on money.

Del. Chris Pritt introduced House Bill 3135 (HB3135) on Jan. 12. The bill would create the “Legal Tender Act;” establishing gold and silver as legal tender in West Virginia. It would also create a nonrefundable tax credit offsetting federal capital gains taxes on the sale of gold and silver.

In 2019 West Virginia passed a bill repealing the sales tax on gold and silver bullion.

IN PRACTICE

In 2011, Utah became the first state in over 80 years to pass a law making gold and silver coin legal tender. The following year, the legislature followed up, approving a bill clarifying several tax measures and more importantly, expanding the definition of specie to include gold and silver coin approved by the state. With the law in place, United Precious Metals Association (UPMA) opened a “gold bank” that offers publicly available accounts denominated in gold and silver dollars in Utah. According to the UPMA, in the past year, it has grown 700 percent in assets under management and made up 2 percent of the market for U.S gold and silver coins. Account holders can make everyday transactions using their accounts through a debit card system.

With the passage of HB3135, West Virginia would follow Utah’s lead and take a step toward treating gold and silver specie as money instead of a commodity. As Sound Money Defense League Policy Director Jp Cortez testified during a committee hearing on a similar bill in Wyoming last year, charging taxes on money itself is beyond the pale.

Note, again, that it's not simply specie - gold and silver coins - but simply gold and silver bullion that are the focus of the bill. If, say, one had a few ounces of silver in the form of bars or medallions, one could exchange, for example,  three ounces of those silver bars for $150 worth of groceries at a participating store. With enough participation, the end of monetized debt fiat money (and its "digital currency" "upgrade") is not far behind. Also not far behind is a West Virginia bullion depository, or perhaps regional depositories for several states...

With respect to the Iowa executive order nullification bill, I suspect we're looking at the tip of an iceberg that is only going to grow, for implied within it is a review process for all prior executive orders. It's a process, in other words, that will grow not only in terms of executive orders brought under scrutiny and review, but also  process that I suspect will grow from state to state.

However, it  is worthwhile to consider a caution: there will be those tempted to lump such measures as these together with those calling for a convention of the states to amend the Constitution. Again, I cannot  emphasize strongly enough what a disaster I think that convention would be. Let's remember, the first convention of states was to gather and amend the Articles of Confederation. What we got, instead, was a coup d'etat in the form of the Philadelphia Convention and the current constitution, which the anti-federalists of the time (and I would have been one of them) were warning that was nothing but a document to produce plutocracy and oligarchy (and here we are). If you suspect that my language - "coup d'etat" - is too strong a characterization of that event, let me ask you a question: Who were the presidents of the United States after the peace with Great Britain, and before the adoption of the current constitution? Why are they not as much a part of our historical memory as George Washington or Abraham Lincoln? (Answer: John Hanson, Elias Boudinot, Thomas Mifflin, Richard Henry Lee, John Hancock, Nathaniel Gorham, Arthur St. Clair, Cyrus Griffin). Let us also acknowledge something else, and something that emerges as a dangerous implication of those advocating a convention of the states: there is no one in the current political class of the stature of a Madison, an Adams, or a Jefferson (whom, it will be recalled, was not present at the Philadelphia convention, and would that he had been!) to guide any deliberations of such a convention. Instead, you will have the likes of Jeb Bush, Hillary Clinton, Lindsay Graham, Chuck Schumer and people of that ilk guiding things.

All of this brings us back to the Iowa and West Virginia bills, for they both have something in common: they are both working from within the current constitutional system. In other words, we don't need a new one. We simply need to observe the one we have. That, of course, raises other questions, but those can await another time, and a patient and careful reading of the Anti-Federalist Papers...

... See you on the flip side...

    In the alchemist mint factory, there is gold being produced:

    The recipe for gold is following:

    The 33rd point is the center, in the 32-point compass. That exposes the ideological theft, that the apron-Jesuit Freemasons represent, by stealing the Runes, to make a 33rd degree mockery, out of the original kingship.

    This is crucial knowledge, when rolling back the ungodly federal ban, on the gold standard.

      BTW, Pontius Pilate, and Joseph of Arimathea, were honorable masons, by trade, both working with stone material, as overseers of aqueduct quarries, and mining operations.

      Thus they have the profession in common, besides, that the governor issues passport, for the tin trader, so he can travel Mare Nostrum. They are in position, to solve each other’s problems, discreetly.

      Original masonry is an old trade, and it includes cutting letters in stone, including Runes. The so-called “free” masons represent Jesuit moles, infiltrating the masonic guild, on behalf of papacy.

      Today, the masonic apron has become ungodly mockery, and a hideout for communism.

    It was my late father who sowed me an article from the New York Post titled know your history that brought up the pre–George Washington Presidents. And it wasn’t until a saw a newsreel from the forties on television that I finally believed him. It is no mistake that Eric Blair in 1984 Oceania is a cover the USA as it said in that novel down the memory hole.

      That is interesting, because it is not taught in history books. Likewise, the first bishop in Rome was a Briton, Linus, son of Caractacus, of Druidic origin. He too is memory-holed.

      Geopold Swampington is the 1st freemasonic president, of the freemasonic superstructure, put into place, with the long-term goal, to systematically remove the gold standard.

      Freemasons – at best – talk out of the both sides of their mouth, and drag their feet, and – at worst – they are hard core communists and popists, as chaos agents of subversion.

      In 1776, the creation of Illuminati, in Europe, and the creation of the USA, in America, was a joint operation – a transatlantic freemasonic handshake.

    I think the trend is clear but I do not think it is a revolt. What we have is the greatest push in our history towards centralization since 1789. That has been going on for 100 years. It is reached the point where people are no longer excepting of this additional centralization. This is a normal process. The ebb and flow of events, the tide in the affairs of men.

    The most important issue is how we fix the Constituuuud’Etat without letting sinister forces ruin it.

    This is a very timely article about West Virginia and the use of Gold & Silver as currency. I have noticed that silver bullion manufacturers are now making silver rounds in 1oz, 1/2oz, 1/4oz & 1/10oz denominations for sale in large quantities. These lower sizes are all a very recent offerings on a mass scale. Normally they were only available as conversation pieces or on a limited basis. There is also a new 1000oz silver bar on the market that never was offered in recent memory. Normally the top size in silver bars for the normal market was 100oz bars. These things alone say the bullion industry is preparing for the eventual use of Silver as the alternate to federal reserve notes in a near term event.

      Major mints such as the US Mint and the Royal Mint are producing gold bullion coins as small as 1/10 ounce. Besides catering to low-budget investors, this seems to indicate a long-term scenario involving the use of gold and silver as a money, a physical means of exchange.



  5. Joseph Aiello on February 9, 2022 at 10:31 am

    It will be interesting to see how far this goes because the Federal government takes a lot of money from the states citizens and then dishes it back in a very controlling and porkish manner. Get out of line or stick your head up too far and the money flow gets cut for, say roads or infrastructure, etc.
    Need to defund the federal government, first.



  6. Eddie Worthington on February 9, 2022 at 8:44 am

    It would be refreshing if some of the elected leadership understood the framework of our republic. State legislatures need not pass legislation to ignore federal mandates. This comes from a fundamental misunderstanding of our governmental framework that has most people believe the federal government sits atop the states when in fact it is the other way around (10th amendment). An org chart would have been a useful addition to the constitution at the time it was written. DeSantis/Florida seems to be the only state governor/legislature who understood this throughout the plandemic.



    • Zorost on February 9, 2022 at 9:13 pm

      I had the same thought. Exec Orders only apply to federal agencies within the executive branch, so can’t effect state agencies unless the state feels like going along.

      I like the sentiment, but Republicans making grand gestures then not doing anything concrete is an old story.

    The rollback, to gold standard, will cause an interesting domino effect:
    https://dl.dropboxusercontent.com/s/5ep9n45qgiyy7i4/scrooge-mcduck.jpg

    The unilateral declaration of independence will roll back, to a multilateral recognition of mutual dependence between states.

    That is a multipolar position, similar to how Europe is constructed, yet without royal pretenders controlled by papacy.

    Original kingship, in Europe, was based on Runes, highlighted by the Seven Seals, in the sundial of Elohim-Yahweh:
