Dear MakeTheStand.com Users,
I hope that you and your family had a wonderfully Merry Christmas, Happy Hannukah, or other and likewise that you will have a Happy New Year as we approach the beginning of 2009.
I am sending this email to let you know about a new initiative to protect gun owners throughout the country. If you are a gun owner who may need support because you exercise that right, or if you would like to support gun owners, there is simply no better way to do it.
The Gun Owners Fellowship (www.gunownersfellowship.com) is a private support network of gun owners across the country. Should any single member of the network face unlawful/illegal arrest, false charges, or other persecution for exercising their right to own, carry, or use firearms for self-defense, the support network could help by raising some or even ALL of the funds needed for legal defense. It works on this simple concept: the people who make up the network and are therefore eligible for the support are the same people who provide the support. 100 members can each chip in $20 to raise $2,000 for example.
If you own a gun in modern-day America, you cannot afford to pass this opportunity by. For only $29.99 you can become a LIFETIME member of the Fellowship and never have to pay another penny except in the circumstance that a member really needs and deserves your help. Then you would only be asked for an equally-apportioned amount just like all the other members of the network.
We are also helping a handicapped man who suffers from cerebral palsy, walks with a cane, and has legally and lawfully carried a firearm in Chicago (unloaded and enclosed in a case) for years. He was unlawfully arrested and charged with…well…doing exactly what Illinois law says to do. We are giving him $10 per membership and have helped raise well over $1,500 for his defense fund so far!!! So if you apply today and become a lifetime member for only $29.99 we will give him $10 of that.
Unfortunately, this introductory price ends after 12/31/08. So 1/1/09 it will be doubling to $59.99. The $10 per membership fundraiser for Chris Morley also ends. I feel bad that it took me so long to let the MakeTheStand.com users know about this deal, so I can extend the $29.99 price an extra week — so it will be good through 1/7/09. If you hopwww.gunownersfellowship.com right now and sign up it will cost that price, but after 1/1/09 it will be $59.99 and you will have to tell me that you heard about it through MakeTheStand.com and i can refund half of the price.
It may sound confusing, but it’s not. Try to sign up before the end of the year though and that will be the easiest. If you ever carry a gun, hunt, or simply go to the range…you should really consider this. Through my other website, ICarry.org, I receive regular phone calls from people who have been victimized by the so-called authorities. I was very distressed at the horror stories, so I decided to do something about it. Now we can provide immediate assistance for people who run into this type of persecution for exercising a Constitutionally-protected right.
Thanks for your consideration and hope to see you in the Fellowship. Once again have a wonderful New Year and take care and be safe.
Founder, MakeTheStand.com, ICarry.org, and the Gun Owners Fellowship
Army Prepares for First Homeland Active Duty for civil unrest/crowd control — story says it will be PERMANENT
Brigade homeland tours start Oct. 1 at ArmyTimes.com
3rd Infantry’s 1st BCT trains for a new dwell-time mission. Helping ‘people at home’ may become a permanent part of the active Army
By Gina Cavallaro – Staff writer
Posted : Monday Sep 8, 2008 6:15:06 EDT
The 3rd Infantry Division’s 1st Brigade Combat Team has spent 35 of the last 60 months in Iraq patrolling in full battle rattle, helping restore essential services and escorting supply convoys.
Now they’re training for the same mission — with a twist — at home.
Beginning Oct. 1 for 12 months, the 1st BCT will be under the day-to-day control of U.S. Army North, the Army service component of Northern Command, as an on-call federal response force for natural or manmade emergencies and disasters, including terrorist attacks.
It is not the first time an active-duty unit has been tapped to help at home. In August 2005, for example, when Hurricane Katrina unleashed hell in Mississippi and Louisiana, several active-duty units were pulled from various posts and mobilized to those areas.
But this new mission marks the first time an active unit has been given a dedicated assignment to NorthCom, a joint command established in 2002 to provide command and control for federal homeland defense efforts and coordinate defense support of civil authorities.
After 1st BCT finishes its dwell-time mission, expectations are that another, as yet unnamed, active-duty brigade will take over and that the mission will be a permanent one.
“Right now, the response force requirement will be an enduring mission. How the [Defense Department] chooses to source that and whether or not they continue to assign them to NorthCom, that could change in the future,” said Army Col. Louis Vogler, chief of NorthCom future operations. “Now, the plan is to assign a force every year.”
The command is at Peterson Air Force Base in Colorado Springs, Colo., but the soldiers with 1st BCT, who returned in April after 15 months in Iraq, will operate out of their home post at Fort Stewart, Ga., where they’ll be able to go to school, spend time with their families and train for their new homeland mission as well as the counterinsurgency mission in the war zones.
Stop-loss will not be in effect, so soldiers will be able to leave the Army or move to new assignments during the mission, and the operational tempo will be variable.
Don’t look for any extra time off, though. The at-home mission does not take the place of scheduled combat-zone deployments and will take place during the so-called dwell time a unit gets to reset and regenerate after a deployment.
The 1st of the 3rd is still scheduled to deploy to either Iraq or Afghanistan in early 2010, which means the soldiers will have been home a minimum of 20 months by the time they ship out.
In the meantime, they’ll learn new skills, use some of the ones they acquired in the war zone and more than likely will not be shot at while doing any of it.
They may be called upon to help with civil unrest and crowd control or to deal with potentially horrific scenarios such as massive poisoning and chaos in response to a chemical, biological, radiological, nuclear or high-yield explosive, or CBRNE, attack.
Training for homeland scenarios has already begun at Fort Stewart and includes specialty tasks such as knowing how to use the “jaws of life” to extract a person from a mangled vehicle; extra medical training for a CBRNE incident; and working with U.S. Forestry Service experts on how to go in with chainsaws and cut and clear trees to clear a road or area.
The 1st BCT’s soldiers also will learn how to use “the first ever nonlethal package that the Army has fielded,” 1st BCT commander Col. Roger Cloutier said, referring to crowd and traffic control equipment and nonlethal weapons designed to subdue unruly or dangerous individuals without killing them.
“It’s a new modular package of nonlethal capabilities that they’re fielding. They’ve been using pieces of it in Iraq, but this is the first time that these modules were consolidated and this package fielded, and because of this mission we’re undertaking we were the first to get it.”
The package includes equipment to stand up a hasty road block; spike strips for slowing, stopping or controlling traffic; shields and batons; and, beanbag bullets.
“I was the first guy in the brigade to get Tasered,” said Cloutier, describing the experience as “your worst muscle cramp ever — times 10 throughout your whole body.
“I’m not a small guy, I weigh 230 pounds … it put me on my knees in seconds.”
The brigade will not change its name, but the force will be known for the next year as a CBRNE Consequence Management Response Force, or CCMRF (pronounced “sea-smurf”).
“I can’t think of a more noble mission than this,” said Cloutier, who took command in July. “We’ve been all over the world during this time of conflict, but now our mission is to take care of citizens at home … and depending on where an event occurred, you’re going home to take care of your home town, your loved ones.”
While soldiers’ combat training is applicable, he said, some nuances don’t apply.
“If we go in, we’re going in to help American citizens on American soil, to save lives, provide critical life support, help clear debris, restore normalcy and support whatever local agencies need us to do, so it’s kind of a different role,” said Cloutier, who, as the division operations officer on the last rotation, learned of the homeland mission a few months ago while they were still in Iraq.
Some brigade elements will be on call around the clock, during which time they’ll do their regular marksmanship, gunnery and other deployment training. That’s because the unit will continue to train and reset for the next deployment, even as it serves in its CCMRF mission.
Should personnel be needed at an earthquake in California, for example, all or part of the brigade could be scrambled there, depending on the extent of the need and the specialties involved.
Other branches included
The active Army’s new dwell-time mission is part of a NorthCom and DOD response package.
Active-duty soldiers will be part of a force that includes elements from other military branches and dedicated National Guard Weapons of Mass Destruction-Civil Support Teams.
A final mission rehearsal exercise is scheduled for mid-September at Fort Stewart and will be run by Joint Task Force Civil Support, a unit based out of Fort Monroe, Va., that will coordinate and evaluate the interservice event.
In addition to 1st BCT, other Army units will take part in the two-week training exercise, including elements of the 1st Medical Brigade out of Fort Hood, Texas, and the 82nd Combat Aviation Brigade from Fort Bragg, N.C.
There also will be Air Force engineer and medical units, the Marine Corps Chemical, Biological Initial Reaction Force, a Navy weather team and members of the Defense Logistics Agency and the Defense Threat Reduction Agency.
One of the things Vogler said they’ll be looking at is communications capabilities between the services.
“It is a concern, and we’re trying to check that and one of the ways we do that is by having these sorts of exercises. Leading up to this, we are going to rehearse and set up some of the communications systems to make sure we have interoperability,” he said.
“I don’t know what America’s overall plan is — I just know that 24 hours a day, seven days a week, there are soldiers, sailors, airmen and Marines that are standing by to come and help if they’re called,” Cloutier said. “It makes me feel good as an American to know that my country has dedicated a force to come in and help the people at home.”
I was very impressed with this latest newsletter — particularly with the mention of COINTELPRO — so I thought I would share it for anyone who doesn’t get it 🙂
Alert #23: Answer to US Complaint Filed
August 18. 2008
Dear Liberty Dollar Supporters:
Thank you for your recent orders… We are on a roll… So sample this Alert:
The $1 Peace Dollars are flying out the door. All Hallmarked and Numbered editions are SOLD OUT. So if you want some $1 Peace Dollars ORDER NOW…
I am pleased to inform you that the Liberty Dollar defenders et al filed their Answer to the AUSA Thomas Ascik Complaint on Wednesday, August 13. Please click HERE for their 32 page Answer and its six Exhibits, a total of a few hundred pages as we get rolling with our BIG “federal case.” And of course I have not even been arrested… yet. But! I am sure that if they can indict a ham sandwich… they can and will indict me. Of course who would want a competitor whose product appreciates 500% while their crap depreciates 50% in the same time period!? More than just trying to run the Liberty Dollar out of business this is about economic and political power.
The government is clearly trying to destroy the Liberty Dollar business. And as the Defendant’s Answer points out in Paragraph 233, the FBI raid on the Liberty Dollar was a classic example of the type of political oppression code-named COINTELPRO that date back to the 1960s and found to be a violation of the Privacy Act, 5 U.S.C. § 552.
Political Oppression that Wreaks!
Unfortunately, the brazen audacity of the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) to attack political organizations is nothing new. But to raid a large national political organization such as Liberty Dollar p! articipating in a hotly debated presidential election is un! heard of , and wreaks of political oppression. The title of a commentary by the Great Depression economist, Richard H. Timberlake, Jr., PhD, puts it right: “Gestapo raid on coin-producing enterprise.”
As authorized by the Search and Seizure Warrants, the FBI raided NORFED – National Organization for the Repeal of the Federal Reserve Act and the Internal Revenue Code. Can there be any doubt that NORFED was a political organization? It was openly opposed to laws passed by US Congress, the non-Federal non-Reserve IOUs that pass as “legal tender” fraud and an oppressive tax scheme that is universally despised by every “taxpayer” and a growing body of non-taxpayers! Its name, sheer size and the booming success of its fund raising product, Liberty Dollar, obviously caught the attention of the federal authorities and they took the only action they t! rust – Attack!
It’s a given that every federal investigation begins with a wiretap. That is clear, simple and SOP. So there is every reason to accept as fact that the attack on the national Fulfillment Office of NORFED was specifically timed to confiscate the Ron Paul Dollars and the new Peace Dollars for maximum impact. There is no doubt that the FBI knew when the two-ton shipment of Ron Paul Dollars would arrive and they planned their attack for just two days after delivery to damage the Ron Paul campaign. This is wrong and grossly unconstitutional! This was clearly “political oppression” of campaign material. Just imagine what 60,000 campaign buttons, T-shirts or anything means to a political campaign. But WOW, just think what $60,000 Ron Paul Dollars would have accomplished at that critical time in Congressman Paul’s campaign.
And this is no little campaign for dogcatcher. This was, and still is, a presidential ca! mpaign by a well-established, 30-year US Congressman for the P! resident of the United States! This is the most important political election in the country! And the Federal Bureau of Investigation goons confiscated over $100,000 worth of presidential campaign materials!!! This was nothing short of a Nazi style attack to eliminate the competition. This is an assault on our right to political expression as guaranteed by the First Amendment. This sucks big time! F!@#$#@ the FBI!
The attack on NORFED and Congressman Ron Paul’s presidential campaign cannot be allowed to stand. In our Answer we demand the immediate return of all Ron Paul Dollars, Peace Dollars and all my political materials that were seized on November 14, 2007. We have less than 30 days until the Republican National Convention, September 1-4 and need that material now.
The FBI attack on NORFED was the same oppressive tactics they employed against the Peace Movement in the 1960s. Its code name then was COINTELPRO: “Counter Intelli! gence Program.” It was used against John Lennon, Timothy Leary, Martin Luther King and thousands of other innocent people dedicated to a peaceful society.
COINTELPRO (Counter Intelligence Program) was a series of covert and clandestine projects/attacks conducted by the FBI aimed at investigating and disrupting dissident political organizations within the United States. The FBI used covert operations from its inception; however, the formal COINTELPRO operations took place between 1956 and 1971. The FBI motivation at the time was “protecting national security, preventing violence, and maintaining the existing social and political order.” Sound familiar?! Targets included Groups suspected of being subversive, such as student political organizations; those in the non-violent civil rights movement, almost all groups protesting the Vietnam War; and even individual student demonstrators. The directives governing COINTEL! PRO were issued by FBI Director J. Edgar Hoover who ordered! FBI age nts to “expose, disrupt, misdirect, discredit, or otherwise neutralize” the activities of these movements and their leaders. If you went to college in the 60s you were spied on.
Guess what? The same FBI is still spying on you today! Recent news accounts have disclosed a burgeoning government (Pentagon, NSA, FBI, CIA, etc.) campaign for “detecting, identifying and engaging” internal enemies that include a database of personal information. The FBI is using “national security letters” to obtain secret access to your personal records and tens of thousands of Americans. And the National Security Agency’s interception of telephone calls and e-mails from the United States – without notice to the federal court that has jurisdiction over domestic spying – had been going on since 1978. OK… so maybe you had some privacy from 1971 to 1978. But not NOW!
In the same month that NORFED was attacked, The W! ashington Post disclosed an exponentially growing practice of domestic surveillance under the USA Patriot Act, using the FBI’s “national security letters.” Originally created in the 1970s for espionage and terrorism investigations, the letters enable the FBI to secretly review the private telephone and financial records of suspected foreign agents. But the hated Bush regime, referring to the Patriot Act, transformed the purpose of those letters to permit clandestine scrutiny of U.S. residents and visitors who are not alleged to be terrorists or spies!
This series of revelations about domestic spying that have emerged in the past few months are always defended in the name of fighting “terrorism.” This argument is a complete and utter lie. There is no doubt that these programs against NORFED, the Liberty Dollar, you and me have been enacted, enabled and deployed to stifle constitutionally protected domestic polit! ical dissents. The proverbial handwriting is on the wall. T! he US go vernment is against the very People who created it. And to make matters worse for you, me, the economy, your children’s education, etc., the government stands for war… war… and more war! Enough! This is NOT bullshit… it is a crime!
Excuse me, but what the hell is the FBI doing spying on you and me? And why did they raid the Liberty Dollar? Why did the FBI confiscate the Peace Dollars and Ron Paul Dollars?! To kill political dissents. Clear and simple!
When I did six years in the 60s at Kansas State University, the person who published the radical “student” newspaper turned out to be an FBI agent! I now know he was part of the government COINTELPRO. The only difference between Kent State and Kansas State was that the government did not murder four students at K-State. The only difference between the FBI raid on NORFED and a raid on your home is that I have already been raided. If you want to protect ! your gold and silver, if you support a peaceful society, then please support the Liberty Dollar with a donation or at least an order.
Love the country? Love your home? Have a vested interest in the economic system? Please take action: Click on this link: http://www3.capwiz.com/y/dbq/media. Click five media locations in your area (limit 5 at a time) and send this Press Release to them.
SAMPLE PRESS RELEASE:
IMMEDIATE RELEASE: August 18, 2008
Political Oppression of Ron Paul Dollars
Liberty Dollar Cites FBI Seizure as Covert Action against Ron Paul Campaign
Demands the Immediate Return of Two Tons of Ron Paul Dollars
EVANSVILLE, INDIANA – Liberty Dollar Group announced today that it has filed an Answ! er in Federal Court for the immediate return of thousands of g! old, sil ver, platinum, and copper Liberty Dollars – including two tons of Ron Paul Dollars – seized in a FBI raid on November 14, 2007.
The group denounced the confiscation as political oppression of the Ron Paul presidential campaign and asserted that the seizure of the Ron Paul Dollars constitutes an attack on its First Amendment right of political expression. They point that in addition to the Ron Paul Dollar with a presidential candidate engraved on the front, the Peace Dollar features the Statue of Liberty torch with STOP THE WAR – clearly an ‘expressive act’ with political intent protected by the Bill of Rights.
The defendant’s Answer to the government’s Complaint says the federal government has no right to hold the currency, since it does not “constitute contraband or other property subject to seizure.” And that the seizures violate the plaintiff’s First, Fourth and Fourteenth Amendment rights.
Von NotHaus says h! e’s “beyond outraged” over the government’s brutal oppressive behavior. “It was bad enough that the U.S. Mint branded us as criminals for exercising our right to freely exchange the private gold and silver currency,” he said. “But interfering with Ron Paul’s presidential campaign is clearly a Gestapo tactic.”
The agents based their search and seizure warrants on an affidavit that the currency was being marketed illegally as legal tender. This claim is denied strenuously by Bernard von NotHaus, the fiery monetary architect of the currency. He points out that the primary point of the marketing was that it was NOT legal tender and that the Liberty Dollar is a private voluntary barter currency.
Robert J. Stientjes, the plaintiff’s attorney, asserts in the Answer that the affidavit does not constitute a prima facia allegation of probable cause. His motion also points out that “without the misle! ading depictions of the size, weight and color… ther! e is no probable cause for issuance of the warrants.”
The plaintiffs explain that the Ron Paul Dollar was created to give citizens the opportunity to own valuable metals, while providing important support for the Ron Paul campaign. They say they intended to make a significant donation for every Ron Paul Dollar issued.
Von NotHaus points out, “The US dollar has lost over 50% of its value in the last ten years, while the Liberty Dollar has appreciated by 500%! Would you rather make five times your money or lose half of it? I think the government is trying to crush our inflation-proof currency plus Ron Paul’s free market and peace campaign in a single stroke.”
ADD YOUR NAME AND CONTACT INFO HERE…
Thank God for Founding Father George Mason’s demand for the Bill of Rights! Otherwise we wouldn’t have shit! Well, we would still have the Bush regime, which is just the same!
Meanwhile the $1 Peace! Dollars are flying out the door. All Hallmarked and Numbered editions are SOLD OUT. So if you want some $1 Peace Dollars ORDER NOW…
And if you have a few minutes check out this interview by Don Harrold:
#1 – http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VMtRekpiP4A
#2 – http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4u4U9bUYMdE
More news on my retirement will be disclosed as we get closer to October 1… but I can tell you that my retirement will probably “blow your mind!”
Many thanks to all the Liberty Associates, Merchants, and RCOs for your continued support. For it is only by banding together and adopting a free and independent currency that provides us with “just weights and measures” will we ! be able to throw off the yoke of a manipulated monetary/tax sy! stem and generate a peaceful and prosperous society.

ICarry.org has launched one of its newest initiatives to support gun owners and the lawful exercise of gun rights. The Gun Owners Fellowship is a private group of nationwide responsible, law-abiding gun owners — with open application beginning this week — who commit to one another in the event of unlawful arrest and illegal prosecution.
It’s no secret among gun owners that they are particularly susceptible to wrongful arrest and prosecution, simply for exercising their rights to own and carry firearms in accordance with the law. Arrest and prosecution – and most importantly the financial consequences associated with ensuring a proper legal defense – are used as a political weapon by anti-rights individuals in positions of power.
ICarry.org founder Shaun Kranish knows this well, after being charged with a felony for having a valid Illinois Firearms Owner Identification Card, and carrying an unloaded pistol in a container precisely as Illinois law prescribes. He even carried a letter from his attorney containing the actual law!! That didn’t stop anti-rights politicians in the courts from taking the original misdemeanor charges and upping them to felony charges. These charges were eventually dismissed, after over a year and tens of thousands of dollars later.
ICarry.org also receives regular contact from people in Illinois and even outside of Illinois who have encountered similar mistreatment by law enforcement and the courts. Lives of law-abiding gun owners are being tragically uprooted each and every day. We’re not talking about criminals – we’re talking about upstanding, law-abiding citizens here!!!
The Gun Owners Fellowship seeks to even the playing field by removing this financial threat and the life-changing consequences that can come with it. By sticking together, gun owners take away this burden, have a little peace of mind, and freely and more securely exercise some of their most important rights.
For more information and to apply when registration opens, please visit: http://www.ICarry.org and click on Gun Owners Fellowship on the left. We hope you might consider joining us 🙂
Freedom Force Report for February 2008
From G. Edward Griffin
My biographical listing in Wikipedia was deleted last week after being on line for about five years. The reason is that Wikipedia’s high-level editors claim I am a conspiracy theorist and a promoter of quack cancer cures. Apparently they do not agree with my view that there are hidden agendas in banking and government and they do not favor my defense of natural health without drugs.
It is strange that they have no problem listing Hitler, Stalin, Mao Tse Dong, Al Capone, or even John D. Rockefeller’s father William Avery Rockefeller who, according to Wikipedia: “was a quack doctor and a confidence trickster.” Nevertheless, the editors of Wikipedia find me to be so offensive that I had to be removed from the Internet lest my ideas contaminate the public mind.
There probably is nothing that can be done about this, but if anyone has any suggestions, I would like to hear them – especially if any attorneys think that legal action might be appropriate. It’s not that I am so important, but there is a principle here that needs to be defended. It has something to do with the First Amendment of the Constitution.

North American Army created without OK by Congress
U.S., Canada military ink deal to fight domestic emergencies
Posted: February 24, 2008
1:45 pm Eastern
By Jerome R. Corsi
© 2008 WorldNetDaily
In a ceremony that received virtually no attention in the American media, the United States and Canada signed a military agreement Feb. 14 allowing the armed forces from one nation to support the armed forces of the other nation during a domestic civil emergency, even one that does not involve a cross-border crisis.
The agreement, defined as a Civil Assistance Plan, was not submitted to Congress for approval, nor did Congress pass any law or treaty specifically authorizing this military agreement to combine the operations of the armed forces of the United States and Canada in the event of a wide range of domestic civil disturbances ranging from violent storms, to health epidemics, to civil riots or terrorist attacks.
In Canada, the agreement paving the way for the militaries of the U.S. and Canada to cross each other’s borders to fight domestic emergencies was not announced either by the Harper government or the Canadian military, prompting sharp protest.
“It’s kind of a trend when it comes to issues of Canada-U.S. relations and contentious issues like military integration,” Stuart Trew, a researcher with the Council of Canadians told the Canwest News Service. “We see that this government is reluctant to disclose information to Canadians that is readily available on American and Mexican websites.”
The military Civil Assistance Plan can be seen as a further incremental step being taken toward creating a North American armed forces available to be deployed in domestic North American emergency situations.
The agreement was signed at U.S. Army North headquarters, Fort Sam Houston, Texas, by U.S. Air Force Gen. Gene Renuart, commander of NORAD and U.S. Northern Command, or USNORTHCOM, and by Canadian Air Force Lt. Gen. Marc Dumais, commander of Canada Command.
“This document is a unique, bilateral military plan to align our respective national military plans to respond quickly to the other nation’s requests for military support of civil authorities,”Renuart said in a statement published on the USNORTHCOM website.
“In discussing the new bilateral Civil Assistance Plan established by USNORTHCOM and Canada Command, Renuart stressed, “Unity of effort during bilateral support for civil support operations such as floods, forest fires, hurricanes, earthquakes and effects of a terrorist attack, in order to save lives, prevent human suffering an mitigate damage to property, is of the highest importance, and we need to be able to have forces that are flexible and adaptive to support rapid decision-making in a collaborative environment.”
Lt. Gen. Dumais seconded Renuart’s sentiments, stating, “The signing of this plan is an important symbol of the already strong working relationship between Canada Command and U.S. Northern Command.”
“Our commands were created by our respective governments to respond to the defense and security challenges of the twenty-first century,” he stressed, “and we both realize that these and other challenges are best met through cooperation between friends.”
The statement on the USNORTHCOM website emphasized the plan recognizes the role of each nation’s lead federal agency for emergency preparedness, which in the United States is theDepartment of Homeland Security and in Canada is Public Safety Canada.
The statement then noted the newly signed plan was designed to facilitate the military-to-military support of civil authorities once government authorities have agreed on an appropriate response.
As WND has previously reported, U.S. Northern Command was established on Oct. 1, 2002, as a military command tasked with anticipating and conducting homeland defense and civil support operations where U.S. armed forces are used in domestic emergencies.
Similarly, Canada Command was established on Feb. 1, 2006, to focus on domestic operations and offer a single point of contact for all domestic and continental defense and securities partners.
In Nov. 2007, WND published a six-part exclusive series, detailing WND’s on-site presence during the NORAD-USNORTHCOM Vigilant Shield 2008, an exercise which involved Canada Command as a participant.
In an exclusive interview with WND during Vigilant Shield 2008, Gen. Renuart affirmed USNORTHCOM would deploy U.S. troops on U.S. soil should the president declare a domestic emergency in which the Department of Defense ordered USNORTHCOM involvement.
In May 2007, WND reported President Bush, on his own authority, signed National Security Presidential Directive 51, also known as Homeland Security Presidential Directive 20, authorizing the president to declare a national emergency and take over all functions of federal, state, local, territorial and tribal governments, without necessarily obtaining the approval of Congress to do so.

This is the THIRD piece we’re selling. The first ONE DOLLAR certificate sold for $61, and the second for $150. This is the first of only 2 TWENTY DOLLAR certificates being sold.
You are bidding on the third piece of the Liberty Dollar Arrest Fund (LDAF) Private Collection to go on eBay. The collection consists of the 82 remaining Liberty Dollar pieces owned by Shaun and Svetlana Kranish – the last known arrestees of the Liberty Dollar. Shaun and Svetlana were arrested in May of this year, in Walworth, WI, for offering a solid silver Liberty medallion at an outdoor ice cream shop. According to Bernard von NotHaus, this was only the fourth time in the nearly 10-year history of the Liberty Dollar that a user/owner was arrested. Shaun and Lana are also friends of Ed & Elaine of the family Brown, the well-known and well-respected members of the tax honesty movement who recently went to federal prison for refusing to pay income taxes. Shaun is the close friend of Ed & Elaine who the feds tragically used without his knowledge to introduce to Ed & Elaine the infiltrator who lead to their kidnapping. This auction includes memorabilia from their home, and is part of an ongoing fundraiser for their legal defense. www.MakeTheStand.com for more info.
Mr. and Mrs. Kranish still face ongoing legal proceedings as well. For more information on this, you can visithttp://www.LibertyDollarArrest.com. They have been working with Bernard on resolutions. Now, Bernard finds himself a victim of the government (or should we say bankers – I suppose the terms can be used interchangeably) and is likely to face criminal charges. As you probably know, the Liberty Dollar offices and warehouses were raided and all platinum, gold, silver, copper, and any other metals/materials, records, computers, you-name-it were taken by the so-called “authorities.” Despite running this honest business for nearly 10 years, the government waited until just recently to make its big move. This move also curiously came after Bernard and the Liberty Dollar sued the government for statements released about the Liberty Dollar.
The fact of the matter is that every American has been victimized by our dishonest monetary and banking system. The use of fiat currency – “money” created almost out of thin air – literally worth less than the paper on which it’s printed, has caused our dollar to lose nearly 97% of its buying power in the last 100 years. The trend is continuing, and even accelerating at this point. Each and every day, more “money,” in the form of digital ones and zeros mostly, is injected into our economy, causing the buying-power of the dollar to drop further, and bringing it closer and closer to extinction.
Article 1, Section 10 of the Constitution for the United States of America:
“No State shall enter into any Treaty, Alliance, or Confederation; grant Letters of Marque and Reprisal; coin Money; emit Bills of Credit; make any Thing but gold and silver Coin a Tender in Payment of Debts;”
Unfortunately for all of us, since we borrow our paper, fiat, scrip money from the private banking cartel – the Federal Reserve – we no longer own our wealth. The States have allowed the federal government to pass off its borrowed paper as payments for debts. We carry debt notes – IOUs – promissory notes – whatever you want to call them. We carry these instead of GOLD or SILVER certificates or coins that one can actually own. We’ve traded our national wealth of gold and silver for this paper – the bankers conned us out of our money!
These are some of the reasons the Liberty Dollar was founded, and some of the reasons why the Liberty Dollar will continue, no matter what actions the so-called government takes in opposition to the Constitution.

A limited number of the 82-piece LDAF Private Collection will be sold on eBay. This collection has been created to raise money for three parties: Mr. and Mrs. Kranish, Mr. and Mrs. Brown, and Mr. von NotHaus. A portion of the proceeds from this auction will go to each party for their respective legal defense against the bankers/government.
Shaun, Lana, and the others behind this collection are still working to help Ed & Elaine while they are in prison. They are working to raise money for ongoing legal defense, as well as money to help make Ed & Elaine comfortable while in prison. Elaine has also been using her very limited commissary money in prison to buy items for less fortunate inmates. At least one lawyer has been hired at this point to help Ed & Elaine. More legal work will be necessary to see that they get a fair trial and are released from prison.
Bernard von NotHaus has authorized this collection. The silver Liberty Dollar rounds/medallions will feature his arrest hallmark and the certificates of authenticity will feature his signature.
Numbers in the collection:
· 82 total pieces in the collection – 1 Liberty Dollar medallion or silver certificate per collection piece – 82 total Liberty Dollar products.
· 7 total “Fraudulent Event Notes” from Ed & Elaine’s house. The 7 notes have been paired with 7 of the 82 collection pieces – 7 collection pieces feature a FEN from Ed & Elaine’s house.
· There are 5 silver certificates. Likewise, there are 77 silver medallions or rounds.
· THIS eBay auction features one of the 5 silver certificates. Only 2 more will be sold on eBay. This is 1 of only 4 framed silver certificates that will be sold on eBay.
