"No bigger flim-flam has ever been foisted on the American people than the creation of the Federal Reserve in 1913 under Woodrow Wilson. It continues to be the scam-of-all-scams, flying under the nose of nearly every American for well over a hundred years."

Makow Disclaimer- I think the gold standard is stupid and doesn't work. Capital (Debt) must be infinite. The issue is who owns the debt.

No bigger flim-flam has ever been foisted on the American people than the creation of the Federal Reserve in 1913 under Woodrow Wilson. It continues to be the scam-of-all-scams, flying under the nose of nearly every American for well over a hundred years.

A flim-flam of almost equal proportion was the taking of our country off the gold standard, first by Franklin Rosenfeld (his real name) in 1933, and again in 1971 by Richard Nixon; and the removal of our country's currency and coins off the silver standard, which happened in 1964, immediately after the assassination of John F. Kennedy.

Most people today are unaware that American citizens used to be able to take a one-dollar bill to the bank and exchange it for a dollar's worth of silver (a silver dollar), or that our dimes, quarters, half-dollar and dollar coins actually contained silver. Minting silver coins is a practice that goes back thousands of years. It's why coin-clipping was such a terrible sin and why coins today have ridges on them.

These treasonous acts by Woodrow Wilson (the worst president of all time), Franklin Rosenfeld (the second worst president of all time), Lyndon Johnson (the third worst president of all time), Richard Nixon, and others are why our currency and coins today are essentially worthless. Sure, they can be exchanged for goods and services - as long as everyone else agrees to do the same - but there's nothing of value backing those bills in your wallet or the coins in your pocket.

Some people today say crypto is a flim-flam. It's not backed by gold or silver. It's not backed by anything. In fact, when you get right down to it, crypto-mania today is no different than tulip-mania in 17th century Holland, or those Circle of Gold chain letters that hippies like Ram Dass profited from back in the 1970s. With chain letters, pyramid schemes, tulips, and crypto, if you get in early, you can make money. If you get in late and are left holding the bag . . . 

I know some people who have gotten rich off crypto. Like Ram Dass and his disciples, they got in early, began at the top of the chain, and reaped the rewards. Some of them haven't cashed out. "You've made more money than you'll ever spend," I tell them. "Why not cash out now and focus on what's important, like the eternal?" But they can't. Greed has taken possession of their minds. Like a hot dice shooter, they're glued to the craps table and unable to pull themselves away.

While the masses are buying crypto, countries are buying gold. The Central Bank of Turkey is the biggest buyer of gold this year, followed closely by China and India. Turkey wants to join BRICS (an intergovernmental organization comprised of Brazil, Russia, India, China, South Africa and other countries). Maybe those BRICS countries know something we don't.

If you think the United States (which lost a war in Afghanistan, failed to mount a "coalition of the willing" to invade Niger, and is badly losing a proxy war with Russia), along with Israel (which is losing its own war), France (who was kicked out of Niger), and their Western allies represent the future, perhaps crypto is the way to go.

On the other hand, if you think super-powers Russia and China, along with emerging super-powers India, Iran, and others, better represent the future than struggling Western nations, perhaps gold makes more sense.

What to Expect in the Next Two Years

We WILL see a major improvement in the economy under another Donald Trump presidency. That's inevitable. What's more important than a rising economy, however, is how you react to it. If you get caught up in the hysteria of "crypto-mania" or "gold fever," you will risk being swept up into a vortex of sin and debauchery, which is precisely what most people are going to do. Be careful.

A soaring economy will make your life easier, certainly more comfortable. You'll be able to buy another car, maybe another house, maybe two more houses. But will any of that make you a better person? I think you know the answer.

When I tell people how to make gobs of money, they beg me for more information. When I tell them how to go to Heaven, I'm met with a fluoride stare. They're interested in the one, but not the other. And that's despite the former being of value only in this world, while the latter will literally take them to Heaven. Money is all they're interested in. 

You are Already Rich

Over 600,000 people tuned in to Roaring Kitty's recent livestream on buying GameStop, with many of those 600,000 would-be investors waiting over twelve hours for the show to begin. They all want to become billionaires like he is doing, but none of them care about going to Heaven. What's more, none of them realize that they are already billionaires. 

By that I mean take a look at your own body. Pay attention to your breathing. Study the way your muscles extend and contract. Observe your five senses and the way you see, hear, taste, touch, and smell. Those things are all priceless. They are beyond the level of human comprehension and you cannot put a price on them. On top of all that, you have the ability to ascend to Heaven when you leave this life. You are already worth more than the richest billionaire on earth.

Keep that in mind as you navigate your way past the dopes, fools, and morons that make up American society. If those same people put as much effort into going to Heaven as they do into chasing get-rich-quick investment schemes, there would be a lot less stress in the world and a lot more souls in Heaven. You don't have to follow their example. You don't have to end up burning in hell as they inevitably will.

Yes, you have to earn a living. And yes, I want you to make enough money to support a family, if that's what you choose to do. But put money in its proper place - behind God, behind family, and behind your own peace of mind.

Liked Stone's article but if he thinks Trump will be the "Savior " you are dreaming.....Sure he will help for a while but bad things will happen on his watch when he gets selected to be President. What happened in the first term? They blamed him for Covid, Political Division and the Riots.

Henry- you are correct about the gold standard, but missed the mark on "the issue is who owns the debt."

The real issue is who controls the regulation of currency. Currency was to be regulated and created by the US Congress. Article 1, Section 8. "To coin Money, regulate the Value thereof, and of foreign Coin, and fix the Standard of Weights and Measures; Congress has the power to issue DEBT FREE currency.

Instead under the unconstitutional Federal Reserve Act, private banks issue "federal" reserve (there are none) Notes (an instrument of debt).

Every US president that has been assassinated or had an attempted assassination tried to mess with the currency. (not sure about Reagan). Lincoln issued DEBT FREE currency for the north, and printed the BACKs "Green". Worked so well he announced he was going to do it for the whole nation, and was dead a week later.

With a new debt-free currency, Congress could pay off the debt quickly by using the new currency to pay off any outstanding bonds associated with Federal Reserve Notes. Could even make a law that the banks only get 50 cents on the dollar, take it or leave it.

Mr. Stone is correct about Woodrow Wilson being the worst President in US history.
