Guest Article - Stretching Terrorism

U.S. Attorney calls currency minting 'terrorism'
By Ben Smith of

"Here's a novel of an expansion of the federal government's use of the word "terrorism," from the triumphant statement of a North Carolina U.S. Attorney, Anne Tompkins, who just won a conviction against a man who minted his own currency:

Attempts to undermine the legitimate currency of this country are simply a unique form of domestic terrorism,” U.S. Attorney Tompkins said in announcing the verdict.

"While these forms of anti-government activities do not involve violence, they are every bit as insidious and represent a clear and present danger to the economic stability of this country," she added. "We are determined to meet these threats through infiltration, disruption and dismantling of organizations which seek to challenge the legitimacy of our democratic form of government."

The convict, Bernard Von NotHaus, who runs the National Organization for the Repeal of the Federal Reserve and Internal Revenue Code, and now faces 15 years in prison."

My Comments
A North Carolina state representative has just introduced legislation to create a new state currency backed by gold and silver. This bill is similar to the one recently passed in Utah. (It's OK for States to do this - NOT individuals).

So what's wrong with the individual states trying to protect their citizens from an overbearing Federal Reserve Bank who's destroying the currency and and an out-of-control Federal Government buying its own debt?

Answer: NOTHING!
