ZeroHedge.com reports in “Texas Pulls $1 Billion In Gold From NY Fed, Makes It ‘Non-Confiscatable’,” that on Friday, June 12th,

 

“Texas Governor Greg Abbott signed a bill into law that will allow Texas to build a gold and silver bullion depository.

“The lack of faith in central bank trustworthiness is spreading. First Germany, then Holland, and Austria, and now . . . Texas has enacted a Bill to repatriate $1 billion of gold from the NY Fed’s vaults to a newly established Texas state gold bullion depository . . . . the Bill includes a section to prevent forced seizure from the Federal Government.”

“HB 483 was introduced by state Rep. Giovanni Capriglione who said,

“We are not talking Fort Knox.  But when I first announced this, I got so many emails and phone calls from people literally all over the world who said they want to store their gold . . . in a Texas depository. People have this image of Texas as big and powerful . . . so for a lot of people, Texas is exactly where they would want to go with their gold.”

 

Good LORD!

Given the choice of storing your gold in Switzerland, Hong Kong, Singapore, Canada—or Texas—where would you rather store your gold?  A lot of people would say “Texas”.  Not just Texans, not just people in the US, but lots of people around the world would rather store their gold in Texas.

After all, how many of those foreign gold depositories would fight—fight—confiscation by the US government?  Texas might.

Once the Texas Gold Bullion Depository is operational (within a year?), so many people from around the United States and from around the world will choose Texas as the place to store their gold that multitude of gold-based businesses and markets might spring up in the vicinity of the nascent Texas Depository.

It’s even conceivable that the Texas Gold Depository might eventually give the Shanghai Gold Exchange (SGE) a run for #1 position as the physical gold market.  Not right away, of course; the Texas gold depository’s initial $1 billion in gold (25 tons) is no match for the 50 tons per week that are already being traded on the SGE.

On the other hand, China’s reputation for honesty and stability is no match for that of Texas.

I won’t say that the Texas Gold Depository is the cornerstone that will allow Texas to ultimately compete with the SGE.

But it might.

 

•  Since World War II, nations and institutions from around the world preferred to store their gold in the Federal Reserve vaults in New York City because it was unlikely to be invaded. The world had confidence in the safety and prudent operation of the Federal Reserve.

However, the United States and Federal Reserve haven’t publicly audited their gold treasury since A.D. 1953.  The Fed refuses to allow an independent, public audit.  That refusal has raised suspicions that the US government and Federal Reserve have been secretly selling off both US and foreign-owned gold in order to suppress the price of gold and maintain the apparent value of the fiat dollars.  These suspicions have diminished public trust in the safety and responsibility of the Federal Reserve’s gold storage program.

(Incidentally, the new law creating the Texas Depository mandates that—unlike the Federal Reserve and Fort Knox, which haven’t been inventoried in over sixty years—the entire Texas Depository must be inventoried annually and the result must be made public.)

 

•  Since WWII, Germany has piled roughly 1,500 tons of gold into NY Fed’s vaults and another 374 tons in French vaults. Reason?  During the Cold War, Germany feared that the Soviet Union would invade and steal Germany’s gold.

However, after the Soviet Union died in A.D. 1991, the Cold War died with it.  No longer threatened by Communist invasion, Germany began to consider repatriating some of its gold.  Other nations followed suit.

In A.D. 2012, Germany asked for the return of 300 of the 1,500 tons of its gold stored in the Federal Reserve.  The Federal Reserve explained that the repatriation of 300 tons to Germany would take seven years.

Seven years?!

The Fed claimed to hold 6,720 tons of gold in its NY vaults.  300 tons is just 4.5% of that total tonnage.  How could it take seven years to repatriate just 300 tons to Germany?  How could it even take seven months?

For years, there’ve been rumors that the US and/or Federal Reserve had secretly leased or even sold the gold they claimed to hold in their vaults to gold banks which then sold that gold into markets.  The rumored objective was to increase the apparent supply of gold in order to suppress the price of gold and thereby artificially support the apparent value for the fiat dollar.

The Fed’s inability to repatriate a mere 300 tons of gold to Germany supported the rumors that the Fed’s gold was gone.

Today, the issue of how much gold remains in US and Fed vaults is seldom in the news.  But it’s a common belief that the US government and Federal Reserve have secretly sold off so much of their gold, that their vaults are nearly empty.

That’s why they won’t allow a public audit.  A public audit would reveal that the vaults are bare.  If the vaults were shown to be bare, the apparent supply of gold might be reduced by ten thousand tons or more.  The price of gold would jump and the purchasing power of fiat dollars would fall.

My objective in this stroll down memory lane is to illustrate that there’s legitimate reason to distrust the US government’s and Federal Reserve’s ability to store gold:  several thousand tons may be missing.

To prove my point, answer this:  Suppose you had some quantity of gold that you wanted to store; suppose it was possible for you store your gold with the Federal Reserve and/or US Treasury—would you do it?  Would you trust the Federal Reserve and/or federal government to store your bullion, collectible gold coins, and rolls of silver eagles?

Think about that.  Would you trust the Fed or the feds to store your gold and silver?  Do you know anyone who would?

I don’t.

The Fed and the feds inspire so much distrust that it’s hard to imagine any private person trusting them to store their gold.

 

•  Which brings me back to Texas.

What if Texas had a gold bullion depository and you could store your gold in that depository, might you trust Texas to store your gold?

Truthfully, you should be wary of any entity that offers to store your gold.  But, at minimum, if you had so much gold that you couldn’t just bury it in the back yard and you had to store it someplace, would you be more inclined to trust the New York Federal Reserve, or the Texas Gold Bullion Depository?

For me, the question’s silly because the answer’s obvious.

In fact, when I consider storing gold in the Texas Gold Bullion Depository, I find my mind’s eye viewing an image of the Lone Ranger riding a galloping White Horse, and shooting his six-gun to the sound of the William Tell Overture.  It’s a silly image, but there it is.

I don’t trust any government.  It’s un-American to trust governments.  But if I had a mass of gold to store, who would I trust more than a Texas Gold Bullion Depository?  Switzerland?  Hong Kong?  Canada?  Singapore?  The New York Federal Reserve?!!  Ha!

So long as my imagination keeps producing images of the Lone Ranger and sounds of the William Tell Overture, I’ll keep my gold within The State of Texas.

Some readers are probably saying that Adask has finally flipped out.  It was bound to happen, sooner or later.  Now, you mention the “Texas Gold Bullion Depository,” and he sees the Lone Ranger.  Those readers might be right.

 

Mental Illness is Contagious

Texas Governor Greg Abbott is also regarded by some as a nut.  When the feds announced that they’d be conducting the two-month military exercise called “Jade Helm” in several States (including Texas), Governor Abbott ordered the Texas State Guard to monitor the US military involved in Jade Helm.  The Governor of Texas doesn’t trust the federal government.

A bunch of people reacted by sending Governor Abbott tin foil hats.  They think Abbott’s reaction to Jade Helm is evidence that extremist conspiracy theories and paranoia have taken root in Abbott’s mind.

I disagree. Although I don’t expect much that’s sinister to emerge from Jade Helm immediately, I see Abbott’s willingness to monitor and figuratively “stand up against” the US military as evidence that Texas doesn’t trust the feds.  I think that’s a good thing.  I think that’s a great thing.

More, the decision to build a Texas Gold Bullion Depository is even greater evidence that Texas doesn’t trust the feds or the Federal Reserve to store and protect Texas gold.  I think that’s another great thing and giant step toward a possible restoration of liberty in the Lone Star State.

So long as Texas is inclined to stand up against the feds and the Federal Reserve, I’m rooting for Texas.  You can call me “Tonto” if you like (and I know what the word means in Spanish), but I’m ready to ride with the “Lone Ranger”.  If Rachel Dolezal can self-identify as a black, then I can self-identify as a “faithful Injun companion,” Kimosabe.

Get yourself a horse (or maybe a copy of the Constitution) and you can self-identify, too.

 

•  Did you know that there are three electrical grids in the continental United States? There’s an Eastern grid, a Western grid, and a Texas grid.  Texas is the only state that, pretty much, has its own electrical grid.  Texas is the only state that’s energy independent.  Texas is the only state that could theoretically secede and easily become its own nation.

Did you know that if Texas were an independent nation, the Texas GDP ($1.5 trillion) would rank about # 12 among the nations of the world—a little lower than Canada ($1.8 trillion) and a little higher than Australia ($1.4 trillion)?

Did you know that the new Texas Gold Bullion Depository Law will allow private people to not merely store their gold and silver into the forthcoming depository, but also to establish private accounts whereby they can buy and sell with gold and silver?

Do you understand that, under the new law, those who hold accounts in the Texas Gold Bullion Depository will be able buy and sell by means of both paper checks and digital (internet) transfers?

I.e., suppose I have a Depository account holding, say, 50 ounces of gold and you also have another Depository account.  So long as we both had Depository accounts, I could buy your used car for 10 ounces of gold and pay you with a check or debit card that would cause 10 ounce of gold to be debited from my 50 ounces in my Depository account and transferred into your Depository account.

We could buy or sell with gold or silver!   

How many people do you suppose there are in Texas, the United States, or even the world—who’d like to have a bank account that would allow them to buy or sell in terms of gold and silver?  How big do you suppose the Texas Gold Bullion Depository could grow if it provided a basis for commerce denominated in gold, silver or other precious metals?  How fast could it grow?

Do you understand that if Texas can buy and sell with gold and silver, Texas will have established a gold- and silver-based monetary system to compete with and ultimately rival the Federal Reserve’s fiat dollars?

 

Retribution?

But will the establishment of a constitutional monetary system be allowed?

History suggests that the banking system is prepared to support fiat currency with acts of violence.

Do you recall that Saddam Hussein announced plans to start selling Iraqi crude for euros in A.D. 2000?  Do you understand that by selling Iraqi crude for euros, Hussein threatened the fiat dollar’s primacy as the world’s only “petro-currency”?  Do you recall that the US government invaded Iraq in early A.D. 2003 under the pretext of searching for “Weapons of Mass Destruction” that were never found and apparently never existed?  Do you suspect that the real reason for that invasion was to punish and destroy Iraq and Saddam Hussein for daring to sell Iraqi crude for euros and thereby threaten the US “petro-dollars”?  Do you suspect that the real reason for the A.D. 2003 invasion was to protect the fiat dollar from the decline in value that would follow if it lost its stature as world’s only “petro-currency”?

What about Colonel Muammar Gaddafi?  He led Libya from A.D. 1969 through A.D. 2011.  During his 42-year reign, he raised Libya up from the poorest country in Africa to the richest.  Nobody minded.  Nobody much cared.  He was accused of responsibility for the A.D. 1988 bombing of Pan Am Flight 103 that crashed at Lockerbie, Scotland, killing 243 people.  Later, the US bombed Libya but not much resulted from that attack.

However, do you recall that shortly after Gaddafi proposed a pan-African currency backed by gold, his nation was suddenly besieged by an alleged “civil war” and attacked by the US and western allies?  Do you remember that that attack caused the A.D. 2011 destruction of Libya and Gaddafi’s assassination?

Some believe that the real reason for the assassination of President John F. Kennedy was his alleged decision to stop issuing Federal Reserve Notes (FRNs) and instead use a paper currency issued by the US Treasury.

My point is that the life expectancy of those who threaten the survival of the fiat dollar can be short.

I’d bet that Texas Governor Abbott is aware of those reports and conspiracy theories.  Insofar as he’s helped implement the Texas Gold Bullion Depository Act and thereby threatened the legitimacy and value of FRNs, it’s not surprising that Governor Abbott might be a teensy bit paranoid.  If I were in his office, and Jade Helm was coming to my State, I’d also have the Texas State Guard spying on the Jade Helm military.  An ounce of paranoid prevention is worth a team of top-notch surgeons.

 

Another Conspiracy Theory?

If you like conspiracy theories, here (as Rod Serling might’ve said) is “another for your consideration”:

What if Governor Abbott isn’t really opposing the federal government but is instead, cooperating with it?

What if the federal government really wants the Texas Gold Bullion Depository?

Of course, that idea sounds crazy.

But it’s only crazy so long as the federal government is determined to protect and preserve the fiat dollar.

What if the federal government has been finally forced to admit privately that the dollar’s sure to die within, say, one to three years?

Would the feds simply allow the dollar to die, chaos follow, and nation disintegrate before they created a new alternative currency?

Or . . . would the feds try to lay the foundation for an alternative monetary now—before the dollar died—so people would have an alternative currency that they understood and was readily available when the FRN breathed its last?

For example, what if Texas reestablished a constitutional monetary system based on gold and silver?  If the Texas system worked well and worked quickly—and if the governor wasn’t shot in the head by a “lone gunman”—other States might quickly follow suit.

It’s unlikely, but it’s at least possible that transitions in Texas and other states from FRNs to gold and silver might be sufficiently smooth to minimize a lot of the chaos and political unrest that could otherwise follow the FRN’s demise.

No matter what, if (when) the fiat dollar dies, there’ll be trouble.  But will it be “trouble” of the sort that follows when there’s an already established gold- and silver-based monetary alternative?  Or will it be “big trouble” of the sort that follows when one currency dies and there’s no readily available alternative?

 

•  Article 1 Section 10 Clause 1 of the Constitution mandates that, “No State shall . . . make any Thing but gold and silver Coin a Tender in Payment of Debts.” Regardless of whichever conspiracy theories turn out to be true or false, it appears that that constitutional money (gold & silver coin) may soon make a comeback right here within The State of Texas.

I’ve advocated a return to constitutional money for most of 20 years.  I’ve lived to some significant steps in that direction.

I can’t tell you how excited, pleased and proud I am.

 

•  Jade Helm is taking place within seven southwestern States.

Three of those states are identified as “permissive” which means that they’re presumed “friendly” to the federal government in the context of the Jade Helm exercises.  Those three “permissive” states are California, Nevada and Colorado.  (Booooo!)

One state, Arizona is colored “light blue”—meaning that their political slant is uncertain but tending to be “friendly” to the federal government.   (Boo!)

One other state, New Mexico, is colored brown and is identified as having an uncertain political slant but is probably “leaning hostile” to the federal government.  (Yay!)

Only two states, Utah and Texas, are colored red and identified as “Hostile” to the Jade Helm warriors and federal government.  (YAAAAAAY!!!!)

The southern-most tip of the permissive state California is also colored red (“Hostile” to the feds).  Yay.

But I’m ignoring southern California to focus only on the two complete states described by Jade Helm as “Hostile”:  Utah and Texas.

 

•  You might be interested to learn that Utah and Texas have something in common:

In A.D. 2010 Utah passed a law to become the first modern state to legalize and recognize gold and silver coin as money within that State.  In doing so, Utah fired a shot across the Federal Reserve’s bow and directly threatened the almighty FRN.

Now, in A.D. 2015, Texas passed a law to become the first modern state to establish a gold bullion depository able to have private accounts for people wishing to buy or sell with gold and silver coin or bullion.  In doing so, Texas has fired a powerful shot across the Federal Reserve’s bow and directly threatened the almighty FRN.

And now, the US government is hosting a seven-state military exercise that describes only two of the seven states as “Hostile”:  Utah and Texas.

Interesting coincidence, hmm?

In light of this coincidence, I suggest that until August 15th (when Jade Helm is supposed to end), the governors of Utah and Texas spend most of their time indoors away from windows and, whatever they do, stay the hell away from grassy knolls.

 

•  Confidence in the fiat dollar and the Federal Reserve is waning. As it does, the dollar will tend to die and people with gold to store will tend to look for depositories they can trust.  I doubt that many depositories will inspire more trust than the coming Texas Gold Bullion Depository.  The establishment of that Depository is a big story and, one way or another, it’s going to make a big difference.

    Excellent post, Al. Still thinking through the possibilities…the positive ones.

    It has taken a long time for people to come anywhere near seeing the dog and pony show of FRNs. Still, most trust the Fed to manipulate their wealth by keeping what they earn in paper and/or computer blips. My guess is that a good majority of folks will still choose the Fed to “protect” them and what they consider their wealth. A basis for my guess is that most don’t even own gold, silver, etc.

    Still, I’m cheering right along with you and think Texas and Utah may have their collective heads on straighter than most.

    Your post has renewed my faith in possible possibilities!

      Most can’t imagine that their FRNs could fail, But anyone who studies the issue knows that, inevitably, there will be a day when the fiat FRN fails and those whose wealth was tied up in FRNs will lose their assets.

      In the meantime, however, I think that most people will continue to say “In FRNs We Trust” because they have most of their wealth tied up, directly or indirectly, in FRNs. They habitually think in terms of FRNs (just as most people in this country think in terms of English). When the day comes that the FRNs fail, they’ll be just as shocked as the people who were building the Tower of Babel when their formerly universal language failed.

    Yes, absolutely, history shows that the bankster oligarchs will defend their paradigm with no limits. Not just fiat but also the next paradigm of a global technocratic resource based economy, with an emphasis on energy.

    About 7 years ago, I listened to a Patrick Wood tele-lecture (live telephone address to his subscribers) in which he described the Trilateralists’ (globalists) plans to shift to a global currency via the IMF’s SDR system of a basket of currencies. He said there were plans or at least proposals to back the global currency with gold (a big “selling point” I’d venture) and there was a working name for the new currency, which I vaguely recall incorporated the French or Latin word for gold. Why this is has not been more widely known in the alt media community is a mystery to me unless the significance of such a revelation was lost in the pandemonium following the economic squeeze in the wake of the engineered banking “crisis”.

    If you think about it, the mainstream media and globalist lackeys appear to be using reverse psychology to subtly create a meme that gold is money and resources = money. When spun a certain way, the process becomes one of manufacturing consent for the new paradigms to come.

    All concepts that seemingly on their face appear to go against the grain of totalitarianism can be twisted in such a manner as to become tools for the end game. This is true of calls for secession that were increasingly being co-opted in manner that could have easily been a gateway into eroding support for national sovereignty. A powerful national government is a nightmare, however, the “alternative” in problem, reaction, solution, style of global governance is far worse.

    The battle to wrest control of human consciousness away from the powers that shouldn’t be is our most challenging and complex seemingly Sisyphean task. We need to be astute and alert to the ways in which emerging memes are being used for purposes of social engineering. It’s possible for us to deconstruct these psy ops and use them as powerful teaching moments. Then the learning curve becomes our advantage, not the controllers.

    Al, I do so admire your work and have spread the most excellent “Man or other animals” teaching far and wide. And this essay on Texas repatriating its gold is top notch — I shouted hallelujah when I read that Gov. Abbott signed the law, and rejoiced that we chose to move to Texas in 2006.

    To help enlarge your perspective as to why this is going to succeed where other slaps at the Fed have failed, I would like to encourage you to consider something written by Dr. Stephen Jones of God’s Kingdom Ministries. He says that the 2520 years of the beast’s dominion ended at Feast of Tabernacles in Oct. of 2014, and we are coming OUT of tribulation instead of going into it as most mainstream churches teach. We, God’s people, now have the kingdom back to take rightful dominion. That’s a sound-byte version, but I encourage you to explore his materials. I have hope and now I see how we will have successes where we have failed before. He says that Russia and China are the new “kings of the east” who will take down the Rothies and Rockies and their usurious blasphemies that have enslaved us for 100 years. Here’s a selection of articles dealing with “kings of the east” and the end of the Babylonian system at their hand. I value your insight and thoughts about this perspective.

      Hi Donna,

      Your link leads to a multitude of articles. I haven’t had time to read them all. However, I have skimmed over 8 or 10 of those articles, and they’re interesting, well-written and good. So far as I can see from my superficial examination, the author offers an insight into the “kings of the East” that is new, or at least new to me.

      Most of us have been taught, trained, conditioned to more or less believe that, in End Times, the “kings of the East” would be an army of millions of men (probably from Russian and China) who would go to war against Israel in particular and the West in general. This war would culminate in the Battle of Armageddon. These “kings of the East” and their armies would be evil.

      But, if I’m understanding correctly, the author (Dr. Stephen Jones?) of the articles you recommended is arguing that while the “kings of the East” and their peoples may not “know” God in the sense that they worship him on a regular basis, they are nevertheless chosen by God to act as His agents and enforcers against “Mystery Babylon”. More, they’re not planning to wage war against the “saints” (God’s people) but rather to free the “saints” by waging war against “Mystery Babylon”–which the author seems to regard as the West’s banking system.

      I agree that the West’s fiat monetary and banking system is the world’s “heart of darkness”. I can see how “Mystery Babylon” could be that fiat monetary system. However, I’m personally inclined to see “Mystery Babylon” as larger than just the banking system and to also include the government of the United States, the New World Order, etc. However, I’m not really a student of End Times and all of these potential components of “Mystery Babylon” are so interwoven that it’s hard to say which is primary, which is secondary and which is only apparently part of “Mystery Babylon”.

      The fundamental point to the articles I skimmed seems to be that the armies of the “kings of the East” will not wage war against the “saints” but against “Mystery Babylon”. That argument is intriguing and even comforting. I’d like to believe it. Right or wrong, I feel as if I’m one of the people currently engaged in spiritual warfare against “Mystery Babylon” and, except for my faith in our Father YHWH ha Elohiym, I tend to feel “outgunned” and isolated. It would be nice to believe that secular help may be coming in the form of the “kings of the East”.

      I have to admit that Dr. Jones’ interpretation is intriguing and, at first glance, tends to resonate with me.

      But I’m not about to believe something just because it might be “comforting” or “nice to believe”. I’ll have to reread the relevant chapters of Daniel, Isaiah, and Revelation with an eye to discerning whether the “kings of the East” must be the “bad guys” bent on destroying the “saints,” or if they might be the “good guys” or at least unwitting agents of God who are bent only on destroying “Mystery Babylon”.

      If I had to guess, I’d say that on rereading those books of the Bible, I’ll find some verses that might be interpreted as supporting Dr. Jones’ arguments. But, if I recall correctly, I will also find some verses that make it seem undeniable that the “kings of the East” are the enemies of God and God’s peoples.

      For example, at the Battle of Armageddon, the blood is supposed to so deep that it rises up to a horse’s withers. I’ve always assumed that this would primarily be the blood of the armies of the “kings of the East”. But is it possible that this blood could be that of both the armies of the “kings of the East” and of the armies of “Mystery Babylon”? Could that blood be primarily or even exclusively that of the armies of “Mystery Babylon”?

      Who are the real adversaries at Armageddon? The “kings of the East” and Israel? Or, the “kings of the East” and “Mystery Babylon”? I’m pretty much amazed that I’ve never considered these questions in the past.

      Up until now, I’ve taken it for granted that the answer was “kings of the East” versus Israel. But, now, for the first time I find myself wondering if the correct answer might be “kings of the East” and “Mystery Babylon”. After all, whatever “Mystery Babylon” is, it has its hooks just as deep into the State of Israel as into the United States. Thus, it’s conceivable that the “kings of the East” might come to wage war not with “Israel” (the “saints”) but with the agents of “Mystery Babylon” who have infiltrated into the secular State of Israel and secular United States. Thus, it’s conceivable that the Battle of Armageddon could be within geographic “Israel” and be against the agents of “Mystery Babylon” who are sequestered in secular/geographic Israel–and yet, not be against spiritual “Israel” (the “saints”).

      I’m not convinced that Dr. Jones’ interpretation is correct, but it does make me wonder–and I like to wonder.

      Thanks for the link and helping me to wonder about a previously unexpected possibility.

        Re: Kings of the East
        East of what? Who are any “Kings” today that have two hundred million armed troops? I believe “Kings” meant leaders too. Today, China has over one Billion people. Two hundred million is 1/5th of one billion & this is not using “new math” Just food for thought. The industrial complex in China is mind boggling.

      Constitution of Texas (1845)

      We, the people of the republic of Texas, acknowledging with gratitude the grace and beneficence of God, in permitting us to make a choice of our form of government, do, in accordance with the provisions of the joint resolution for annexing Texas to the United States, approved March first, one thousand eight hundred and forty-five, ordain and establish this constitution.

      . . .

      Constitution of the State of Texas (1861)

      We, the people of the State of Texas, acknowledging, with gratitude, the grace of God, in permitting us to make choice of our form of government, do ordain and establish this Constitution:

      That the general, great and essential principles of Liberty and Free Government may be recognised and established, we declare, that–

      Section 1.

      All political power is inherent in the people, and all free governments are founded on their authority, and instituted for their benefit, and they have at all times the inalienable right to alter, reform or abolish their form of government, in such manner as they may think expedient; and, therefore, no government or authority can exist or exercise power within the State of Texas, without the consent of the people thereof previously given; nor after that consent be withdrawn.

      . . .

      Constitution of the State of Texas (1876)

      Humbly invoking the blessing of Almighty God, the people of the State of Texas do ordain and establish this Constitution.

      Article I, Section 1.

      Texas is a free and independent State, subject only to the Constitution of the United States; and the maintenance of our free institutions and the perpetuity of the Union depend upon the preservation of the right of local self-government unimpaired to all the States.

        Notice the word choice where, in 1845, the people of Texas established that state’s constitution in accordance with provisions for “annexing Texas to the United States”.

        Black’s Law Dictionary, 1st edition:

        ANNEX. To add to; to unite; to attach one thing permanently to another. The word expresses the idea of joining a smaller or subordinate thing with another, larger, or of higher importance.

        ANNEXATION. The act of attaching, adding, joining, or uniting one thing to another; generally spoken of the connection of a smaller or subordinate thing with a larger or principal thing. The attaching of an illustrative or auxiliary document to a deposition, pleading, deed, etc., is called “annexing” it. So the incorporation of newly-acquired territory into the national domain, as an integral part thereof, is called “annexation,” as in the case of the addition of Texas to the United Slates.

        Thus, annexing involves two entities: one of lesser, the other of greater significance. The Texas constitution of 1845, through its use of the phrase “annexing Texas to the United States”, identifies these entities by name as “Texas” and the “United States” respectively.

        Henry,
        @Constitution of the State of Texas (1876)
        [ 1876 !! After the WAR Amendments & en FORCED ed via “appropriate Legislation” ]
        @ Article I, Section 1.
        @Texas is a free and independent State, subject only to the Constitution of the United States.
        Here we go, > subject only to the Constitution of the United States.. AND I believe this means SUBJECT to THAT so called,United States Constitution Appropriate legislation.

        And in all three Texas constitutions the State of Texas is ‘the People’. An analogy is a vacuum company forms a free and independent corporation for the purpose of promoting their product within a given region. The sales of vacuums is of importance to shareholders, salesmen and managers as well as customers who have an interest in the quality of the product and availability of spare parts. Placing the concept terms such as these avoids to some extent the political enthusiasm although to this day some people will still swear that a Hoover is better than a Dysan (brand loyalty).

        > And in all three Texas constitutions the State of Texas is ‘the People’.

        This is generally the case. Emer de Vattel, in The Law of Nations which has long been taken seriously by those who build and maintain (as opposed to seditiously undermine) nations, including the Founders of the United States:

        “Nations or States are political bodies, societies of men who have united together and combined their forces, in order to procure their mutual welfare and security.”

    Assuming the “this state vs The State” theory is viable, I’d say it’s “this state” that’s actually going through the motions of recovering the gold. Even so, they’re acting like The State. If that act is allowed to persist, they current Texas government may be inadvertently pushing us back towards a “The State” environment.

    I keep on dreaming that Rand Paul will take us back to Article 1 Section 10 Constitutional money. After saying,”no more FICA taxes and a flat tax of 14.5%” maybe…. It was just a dream.

    Texas is a very valuable State to the globalist. A partial list of facts that make Texas quite unique;

    Pantex – every US made nuclear weapon is assembled/disassembled at the Pantex plant outside of Amarillo
    Oil Refineries – the 2 largest US oil refineries are in Texas, and they also are in the top 10 for the world
    Speaking of oil, ExxonMobile HQ is in Dallas, not to mention all the other numerous oil/gas companies based in TX, in particular drilling and related support businesses.
    Fort Hood – Killeen, largest population of US military in the world, 200+K acres, Texas has a total of 21 military bases
    Lockheed Martin- every F-16 built in Fort Worth, plus part of the F-35
    In fact from 2000-2014 $454 Billion dollars of defense contracts were awarded to 17,000+ companies in Texas;
    http://www.governmentcontractswon.com/department/defense/texas_counties.asp
    As Al mentioned TX has it’s own independent power grid
    Texas is the largest livestock producer in US, largest producer goats and sheep. Texas large cereal and produce grower and leads the nation in cotton production. Also has a large commercial fishing fleet.
    As of 2010 Texas GDP of $1.2 trillion, 2nd largest in the US, comparable to the GDP of Canada or India who were the 10th and 11th largest in the world.
    NASA LBJ Space Center in Houston
    Texas has a large Information Technology concentration in the Austin area
    DFW Airport – 3rd busiest in the world by aircraft movement, and 9th busiest by passenger volume
    Alliance Freight Airport – Ft Worth, worlds first 100% industrial airport
    Texas Medical Center – Houston, largest medical center in the world
    University Texas Education System – 9 campuses and 6 health/hospital institutions including UT Southwestern in Dallas, and MD Anderson in Houston – world’s #1 cancer treatment center
    Here is an interesting fact, current UT Chancellor is a former Admiral of the Navy.

    If Texas succeeds, it won’t be from the globalists.

      > If Texas succeeds, it won’t be from the globalists.

      If Texas secedes, it will be by the globalists: the same international Money Power behind the breakdown and privatization of the nation state worldwide for the last 25 years especially, but really since the early 1970s.

      Anarchy, secession and social disintegration are the current goals of the international Money Power (with plenty of marketing support from the mainstream and astroturf media), because the Law & Order imposed by the functioning body politic of a nation’s people is last obstacle to the “free market” hegemony of billionaires.

        I knew something was wrong with my ‘succeeds’… I meant secedes. You are exactly right Roger. My point ultimately is the Texas is WAY to valuable to be allowed to ‘secede’ and become truly independent.

        Also forgot to mention that the Texas Gold Depository will be funded by the one billion in gold bullion that University of Texas purchased several years ago.

    I mentioned to my coin dealer here lately that I believed they stopped minting the coinage out of silver in A.D. 1964 due to the publics’ removal out of circulation due to it’s undervalue. He said it was not the public but foreigners were using their debt instuments to purchase silver. That it was cheaper to purchase U.S. silver coinage than it was to open a mine due to it’s being below the cost of production. The same situation exists now, thus the unending demand for silver as evidenced by the mintage numbers released by the U.S. Mint. My question, if this mispricing continues will this deplete all silver supply available and have we arrived there already? It must be much more expensive to open a mine now and thus purchase of silver may actually more urgent than at any time in the last 100 years!
