Government’s War Against Savers

Reuters published “India’s ‘gold monetization’ scheme could have a big impact on global demand”.  According to that article:

“Last week the Indian government approved the so-called gold-monetization scheme . . . [by] creating a system in which Indians holding private gold will be able to deposit it at banks—and then earn interest on their bullion holdings.

The government plans to then make the deposited gold available to buyers across India. The aim is to reduce gold imports from outside the country, which run at nearly 1,000 tonnes yearly.

“India’s cabinet also approved a ‘gold bond’ program in which citizens will be able to buy interest-bearing bonds backed by gold, rather than owning physical gold.

Estimates are that private citizens across India hold tens or even hundreds of millions of ounces of gold—which could become available to the banking system, if the monetization program is well received.”


First, a metric ton weighs 2,200 pounds.  If India imports 1,000 metric tons of gold at $1,200 per ounce, they’re importing $42 billion worth of gold each year.

India’s current GDP is about $2 trillion per year. Thus, India currently spends 2.1% of its annual GDP purchasing more gold from foreign sources. That’s 2.1% (more or less) last year; 2.1% this year; 2.1% next year.  Note that US economists hope that the US economy will grow by 3% annually.  Compare that 3% hope to India’s 2.1% annual drag on their economy due to purchasing foreign gold.  You can see that 2.1% is a significant expense for an economy the size of India’s and cause for governmental concern.

Administrative Law vs. “Show Me The Law!”

Rowan County is located in Kentucky.  Kim Davis is the Rowan County clerk who has repeatedly refused to issue marriage licenses to same-sex couples and has therefore been jailed by order of a federal judge.

Here’s a video of a Kentucky attorney, Michael Peroutka, explainting a constitutional defense for Ms. Davis at a rally.  He argues that she’s broken no law, because there is no law requiring her to issue marriage licenses to homosexuals.  Yes, there may be court opinions alleging that Ms Davis must issue such licenses, but court opinions are not “law”–they are only opinions.

As Mr. Peroutka pointed out, Article 1 Section 1 of the federal Constitution declares, “All legislative Powers herein granted shall be vested in a Congress of the United States . . . .”  If all legislative powers are vested in Congress, no legislative powers are vested in the courts (or in the executive branch, which is currently famous for issuing executive orders that seem to have the force of “law”). That means that the judicial and executive branches of the federal government have no authority to legislate and “make” law.

If the only charges against Kim Davis are that she’s defined a court opinion and/or executive order, then she has broken no law and it’s wrong, fraudulent and illegal to jail her for breaking a law because there is no such law.

Preserving Government’s Capacity to Spy on Americans

Last week, the Huffington Post reported in “Loretta Lynch: ‘I Am Very Concerned’ For Americans If A Key Section Of The Patriot Act Expires,” that:


“Earlier this month, the House of Representatives passed the USA Freedom Act, which would reform aspects of the Patriot Act and put an end to the government’s bulk collection of phone records.

Section 215 [of the Patriot Act] has been the legal basis for the intelligence community’s bulk metadata collection.

“U.S. Attorney General Loretta Lynch said she’s ‘very concerned‘ about what could happen if section 215 of the Patriot Act, set to expire June 1, is not reauthorized by Congress.

“My biggest fear is that we will lose important eyes on people who have made it clear that their mission is to harm American people here and abroad,” Lynch said in an interview with CBS.


By “people who have made it clear that their mission is to harm the American people,” does Mz. Lynch mean only foreign terrorists, or does she also include the federal government–which is certainly bound to “harm the American people” by depriving us of our rights and liberties?

Emergency Powers

James Turk interviews Lawrence Parks on the subject of “emergency powers”.

Note that, in my opinion, the President’s “emergency powers” only apply within the districts and territories “of the United States”.  They do not apply within the borders of the States of the Union (“The United States of America”).  If my opinion is roughly correct, it implies that your exposure to the President’s “emergency powers” may depend on whether you consent to assent to government’s presumption that you are “in” a territorial state (“this state”) of the singular “United States“.

In theory, if you can establish that 1) you’re a man made in God’s image (Genesis 1:26-28); 2) you’re “endowed by your Creator with certain unalienable Rights” (“Declaration of Independence”); 3) are one of the people of a State of the Union (like “The State of Texas”); who 4) is living and working within a State of the Union (a State of “The United States of America“); which 5) is not a “state of emergency”; and who is 6) entitled to “separation of powers”; and 7) therefore does not consent to be subject to administrative law or administrative process; then, 8) you might not be subject to President Obama’s “emergency powers”.

Kent Hovind’s Spiritual War

Creationism:  Endowed by his Creator [courtesy Google Images]

Creationism: “Endowed by his Creator”

Back in the 1990s, I published a magazine called the AntiShyster.  That publication focused mainly on criticizing lawyers and the judicial system, but I also touched on issues of religion.  I’d also sometimes touch on extraneous subjects that simply impressed me as interesting and important.

One of those subjects was Kent Hovind’s arguments in favor of Creationism–the idea that man really was created by God in the way described in Genesis.  According to Hovind, man is not the result of evolution.

At the time, I was in my 40s and regarded myself as semi-educated and reasonably intelligent.  Therefore, I knew that the Theory of Evolution was rational, scientific and undeniable. I wasn’t a “holy roller,” and I dismissed Creationism as a myth unworthy of consideration.

And then I read one of Kent Hovind’s articles that both advocated Creationism and also pointed out great logical flaws in the Theory of Evolution.  I was amazed. I no longer regarded Evolution as rational, scientific and undeniable.  I could see that while “evolution” meant “change” and offered a very logical theory as to how animal “A” changed/evolved into animal “B” which, in turn, changed/evolved into animal “C”–the theory of evolution cannot explain how animal “A” was created and came to be in the first place.

Going Postal: Gov-co Stocks up on Ammo

“Going postal” just took on a whole new meaning.  Apparently, Postal Employees are no longer content to shoot each other and are therefore preparing to shoot the public.

We know this because the USPS has joined the list of federal agencies that are stockpiling ammunition and firearms.

For example, the Social Security Administration put in a request for 174,000 rounds of .357 Sig 125 grain bonded jacketed hollow-point bullets.  Do they fear that the retirees are about to grab their walkers and storm the SSA buildings?

The Department of Agriculture requested 320,000 rounds.   Do they fear farmers and ranchers—or an attack by cows and pigs?

The Department of Homeland Security has requested 450 million rounds.  That’s enough bullets to shoot every American about 1.5 times.

The FBI has sought 100 million hollow-point rounds.

The National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration also requested 46,000 rounds.  Why does a weather service need ammunition?

To date, over two billion rounds of ammunition have been purchased or ordered by a variety of domestic federal agencies.
