I have been telling everyone for a couple years that they need to get out of the banks, trade their paper "currency" for something real, especially silver, and stock up on other essentials that will be priced out of reach when the dollar collapses.
You should read this very well written article by Betty Freauf which appears this morning on "News With Views" about the dollar collapse and a new world currency that is right around the corner. Again, it's a very good history lesson. "Those who refuse to learn from history are condemned to repeat it."

Who said last February that it was OK with them to produce a new currency to replace the dollar? None other than serial tax evader, our U.S. Treasury Secretary Timothy Geithner and the guy that held his nose when the corporations to big to fail began receiving government bailouts, Federal Reserve chief, Ben Bernanke. In a speech to the Greater Omaha Chamber of Commerce on February 6, 2007 Bernanke warned that rising income inequality in the U.S. “has been evident for at least three decades, if not longer.” [1] Gee, I wonder what caused that? Could it be the Federal Reserve printing money out of thin air causing inflation and the income disparity? And why did the Obama administration fail to invite the National Federation of Independent Businesses (NFIB) and the Chambers to the “Jobs Summit” table held early in December? National Black Chamber of Commerce president, Harry Alford, a guest on Glenn Beck on 12/9 told how unions with big government jobs that pay prevailing wages (40% higher than non-government jobs) discriminate by ignoring minorities for these jobs but instead they bring in workers from 60-70 miles away.
While he didn’t say it, it is common knowledge among union members that they will be reimbursed for food and lodging. And then we learn there is a Federal Prison Industry that is giving 160 prisoners the “green” jobs in one city where 80 other people destined for those jobs were laid off. It seems governments at all levels are producing the most jobs and have the most job security. The Chamber used to appease the United Nations regional administrative government leaders and now the chamber seems to be unwelcome. Those who say Appease, Appease are hung by those they tried to please.
Our Congress has become obsolete. Former Georgia Governor and Congressman Zell Miller in his book, A National Party No More says Washington lawmakers have replaced dogs as best friends in favor of Special Interest Groups and campaign consultants. He says the politicians are regularly petted and fed and they wag their tails and do tricks – the favorite one being “Beg,” but “Lie Down,” “Stay.” “Speak” and “Roll Over” are also favorites. The Special Interest Groups have to keep their pets obedient and performing in order to distort issues they must keep alive in perpetuity in order to make their jobs seem necessary. Our dictator’s Executive Decrees and his czars in charge of all these unconstitutional U.N. administrative governmental agencies are in positions to regulate us to death at random and they now seem to be running our country. Our votes are for cosmetic purposes only.
I’m reminded we’ve been taught the Civil War was fought to free the slaves but an ulterior motive of centralized government in Washington, D.C. was overlooked in our history books. Our Founding Fathers clearly understood that only a citizenry educated in morality and willingly bound by the self-forced chains of virtue can remain free of the chains of tyranny. Radio host Rush Limbaugh would ask, “How is Obama’s Hoax and Chains working for us?” Current centralized government with no checks and balances is returning us to slavery. And for all those “birther”debunkers, on June 27, 2004, the East African Standard Newspaper featured a headline that said: KENYAN-BORN OBAMA ALL SET FOR U.S. SENATE. Obama, at the time, would have said, “Only the president has to be a natural born citizen.”

  1. Re: "Obama, at the time, would have said, “Only the president has to be a natural born citizen.”

    That is perfectly right. He was running for Senate. Senators do not have to be Natural Born Citizens. This is a fact, and since he was running for Senate, it is relevant.

    Keynes, who asserted that Obama was not a Natural Born Citizen, was wrong in making this comment because Senators do not have to be Natural Born Citizens.

    So Obama was giving him a lesson in the Constitution. He did not have to be a Natural Born Citizen to be Senator. But this does not mean that he was not a Natural Born Citizen, only that he did not have to be one to be a Senator.

    Obama is, of course, a Natural Born Citizen because he was born in the USA. That is the original meaning of Natural Born, which was used at the time of the writing of the Constitution as the equivalent of Native Born today. Native Born was not a popular term at the time, but Natural Born was used all the time by American lawyers, and it always meant "born in the country."

    That is why such prominent conservative Senators who are also lawyers as Orren Hatch and Lindsay Graham say that a Natural Born Citizen is simply one who was born in the USA:

    Senator Lindsey Graham (R-SC), said:

    “Every child born in the United States is a natural-born United States citizen except for the children of diplomats.” (December 11, 2008 letter to constituent)

    Senator Orrin G. Hatch (R-UT), said:

    “What is a natural born citizen? Clearly, someone born within the United States or one of its territories is a natural born citizen.” (Senate Judiciary Committee hearing hearing on OCTOBER 5, 2004)

  2. smrstrauss. There is no proof that Obama was actually born in any State of the United States.
    He won't release any proof and has spent millions trying to cover this all up.
    You evidently didn't read the rest of the article. AP reported that he was born in Kenya.
    There are a lot of very pointed questions about his eligibility to be president, let alone the treason he is accused of by a grand jury in Tennessee.
    In fact there are several ongoing court cases about this:

  3. Happy Holidays:

    Let’s take these in order.

    Re; “There is no proof that Obama was actually born in any State of the United States.”

    Obama has posted and shown to both Politifact and FactCheck the OFFICIAL birth certificate of Hawaii. This, the Certification of Live Birth, is the only birth certificate that Hawaii issues. It no longer issues copies of the original birth certificate to anyone. ( The facts on it have been repeatedly confirmed by the officials in Hawaii, who are members of a Republican governor’s administration. Their statement is direct, saying that the facts in the files MEAN that Obama was born in Hawaii. (

    The Certificate of Live Birth is accepted as proof of birth in Hawaii by all the departments of Hawaii (Yes, including DHHL. I checked.), and it is accepted as proof of birth in the USA by all the branches of the US Military and the US State Department.

    The Wall Street Journal said:

    “Obama has already provided a legal birth certificate demonstrating that he was born in Hawaii. No one has produced any serious evidence to the contrary. Absent such evidence, it is unreasonable to deny that Obama has met the burden of proof. We know that he was born in Honolulu as surely as we know that Bill Clinton was born in Hope, Ark., or George W. Bush in New Haven, Conn.”

  4. Re; “He won't release any proof and has spent millions trying to cover this all up.”

    (1) He HAS released proof, and it has been repeatedly confirmed by the officials in Hawaii, and the McCain campaign checked out all the allegations that the document was forged and that Obama was born elsewhere than Hawaii and found them all false;

    (2) The allegation that he has fought the release of his birth certificate is particular crap because (a) He has released his birth certificate, (b) the lawsuits were not for his birth certificate. They were to stop him from being president.

    There was never a lawsuit against him that simply asked for his birth certificate. The lawsuits were to prevent him from being president. All the lawsuits before the election tried to stop the election, and none of them (and I read them all) even asked that he show his birth certificate to the court. That accounts for by far the bulk of the cases. The bulk of the cases after the election were to stop the Electoral College from voting, stop the certification of the election by Congress or stop the Inauguration. I have read most of these cases, and again none asked that Obama show his birth certificate to the court.

    So, the lawsuits were not for the birth certificate, and Obama did not try to hide it because he wasn’t asked to show it.

    Re: “\You evidently didn't read the rest of the article. AP reported that he was born in Kenya.”

    The AP did NOT report that he was born in Kenya. The AP has repeatedly reported that he was born in Hawaii.

    This is what the AP said:

    “The AP has never reported that President Obama was born in Kenya. In fact, AP news stories about the state of Hawaii have confirmed that he was born there. The Kenyan paper that you cite rewrote a 2004 AP story, adding the phrase ‘Kenyan-born.’ That wording was not in the AP version of the story.” (

    This is what the National Review said about the myth that Obama was born in Kenya:

    ““The theory that Obama was born in Kenya, that he was smuggled into the U.S., and that his parents somehow hoodwinked Hawaiian authorities into falsely certifying his birth in Oahu, is crazy stuff.”

    Let me add a little to that. IF a child were born in Kenya she or he would need a US travel document to get to the USA. That would be either a US visa on a British passport or the change to his mother’s passport to include him when she was in Kenya. If either of those had occurred, there would be application forms for the documents still stored in the files of the US State Department, which was under the Republicans until January. They would have been found by now.

    Also, Obama’s Kenyan grandmother did NOT say that he was born in Kenya. She said, very clearly, that he was born in Hawaii.

    You can hear her say “America, Hawaii” in response to the question: “Whereabouts was he born?’

    Listen to the complete tape. Listen to the complete tape, until after the question “Whereabouts was he born?”

    Re; “There are a lot of very pointed questions about his eligibility to be president, let alone the treason he is accused of by a grand jury in Tennessee.”

    You know, of course, that treason is a federal offense. This is a state grand jury. It will not hand up an indictment because no state court has jurisdiction over a federal offense.

    So let’s put the two things together (1) The original meaning of Natural Born Citizen, the one that applies to Obama, is merely “born in America; (2) Obama was born in America.

    He is thus a Natural Born Citizen. This explains the fact that all 365 of the Electoral Votes that he won on Nov. 4 2008 went to Obama. Not one of those electors though that he was not Natural Born and changed his or her vote. And this explains the fact that the Congress confirmed Obama’s election unanimously. Not one objected.
