Currently the ‘federal government’ lays claim to 64.5% of the lands in the state of Utah, much to the ire of both the people of Utah and their representatives, but all that is about to change.

After three years of the ‘federal government’ refusing to discuss the matter with the state government, Governor Gary Herbert is moving forward with plans to seize the 31.2 million acres of Utah land from the ‘federal government’ and restore control of the lands to the people of Utah. The action is unprecedented.

In 2012, the Utah legislature passed the “Transfer of Public Lands Act”. This law demanded that the ‘federal government’ relinquish its hold on the land by December 31st, 2015, but Washington DC didn’t so much as blink. Now that the deadline has passed, Governor Herbert intends to take the lands 3 weeks from now.  The seizure entails a 4-step plan including education, negotiation, legislation and litigation, and the state is prepared for the costs involved for the effort. 

This past Monday, a 784 page report entitled “An Analysis of a Transfer of Federal Lands to the State of Utah” demonstrated that the state government was fully capable of doing the job that has, until now, been performed by the federal Bureau of Land Management (BLM) and the Forest Service.

The report’s analysis indicates that the state would incur approximately $280 million in costs to manage the lands. However, with an expected $332 million in royalties from mineral resources development, Utah will actually turn a profit from taking control of their own lands.

The news is welcomed by Americans all across the west who have grown weary of the abuses of the ‘federal government’ against ranchers, miners, loggers, farmers and other property owners who have been harassed and abused by the BLM and other federal bureaucracies.

The question remains – How will the ‘federal government’ respond? It is one thing to crack down on a small pockets of citizen resistance groups, but quite another to face off against an entire state. For now, groups such as the Citizens for Constitutional Freedom, led by Ammon Bundy, can take heart that movement to restore constitutional freedom is well underway.

Reading the many comments on different websites, we realize that many remain confused by the difference in the two currencies. 

The FEDERAL US DOLLAR (FRN) has nothing to do with the United States of America. The Federal Reserve Fiat dollar is owned by a private corporation formed in 1913 on Jekyll Island by private individuals. The “owners” of said corporation called it the US Dollar to cover up the scam of theft of the American people. If you have not realized this by now, we suggest a crash course into the history of the Federal Reserve.

When — not if — the Global Currency Reset occurs, the world will return to a “asset backed” system.  For example, currency baskets will obtain gold, silver, oil, corn, cotton or whatever resources prove valuable. This will enable each country’s currency to be “pegged” to a new value. These “baskets” will NOT have the country’s currency in it, for example – gold, yuan, British pound, etc. 

Right now the “SDR” (Special Drawing Rights) at the IMF is set up with “currencies” and that is not going very well, so that will change also. Each country has an audit of “assets” their country possesses and what it can support for a value to their currency. This “value” is not only gold bars in the vault, but also what is in the ground under their feet.

Back to the United States problem that people do not understand. Right now folks are saying that the US FIAT DOLLAR is going to devalue when the Reset occurs… WHO CARES!!! That is the privately owned fiat dollar.  Let it go down burning is what I say!!! The “true value” of the crap paper is about 3 cents. That is why a loaf of bread is around $4.00 at the store.

The USA Treasury will be sending out a NEW US TREASURY currency. If you do not believe this can happen…research what John F. Kennedy DID in 1963. Google Kennedy Dollar, look at the $5 bill and the $2 bill…what is missing? I’ll give the answer at the end for those too lazy to look it up.

This is how it will play out — so nothing for us to worry about.

The Global Reset happens…announcement is made that the USA is getting new USA TREASURY bills. For those of you who “might” still have fiat cash in your wallet or tucked under your mattress, you will be able to take it to the bank and exchange it for new treasury notes or spend it at the store. When the store makes its deposit, the US Treasury will shred it.

It is my understanding that it will take approximately six months for all fiat bills to be collected from mason jars, mattresses, etc.

So far it will be a one to one exchange…no reason to freak the people of the USA out. The FEDS have not printed new fiat $1, $5, $10, or $20 bills since 2009. This is why they have been pushing the “debit” card to use instead of cash. If everybody suddenly went back to only using CASH…the banks would freak out because they do not have that much fiat cash on hand.

The new US Treasury bill will have, for example, a TRUE value of let’s say $1.80 value to each $1.00 new bill. So that same loaf of bread sitting at $4.00 fiat right now will DROP IN PRICE to NEW USA Treasury price of $1.30 for example, or even drop back to 89 cents like it was 30 years ago. 

As ‘Poof’ used to tell us all “we will return to 1950s prices” because the NEW USA Treasury currency “will have a “TRUE” value to it and it will be WAY HIGHER than that crappy fiat paper worth no more than 3 cents!!! Just understand that the NEW Treasury bills will have a HIGHER value and you will be able to buy more at the store…this is also part of the “leveling the playing field” for us all. We will get more “bang for the buck” — finally!!!

As for the OLD FIAT PRIVATELY OWNED CURRENCY that was called the ‘US Dollar’…Let it Burn!!! When it burns, so will ALL that debt that is in Fiat dollars that has been chained around the neck of the World and the American people for the last 100+ years.


Iceland Sentences 26 Corrupt Bankers To 74 Years In Prison


By Grouch E. Geezr
January 16 2016

Iceland just sentenced their 26th banker to prison for his part in the 2008 economic collapse. The charges ranged from breach of fiduciary duties to market manipulation to embezzlement.
When most people think of Iceland, they envision fire and ice. Major volcanoes and vast ice fields are abundant due to its position on the northern part of the Mid-Atlantic Ridge(A hot July day in Reykjavik is around 55 degrees.) However, Iceland is also noted for being one of the Nordic Socialist countries, complete with universal health care, free education and a lot other Tea Potty nightmares. Therefore, as you might imagine, they tend to view and react to economic situations slightly differently than the U.S.
When the banking induced “Great Recession of ’08” struck, Iceland’s economic hit was among the hardest. However, instead of rewarding fraudulent banking procedures with tons of bailout money, they took a different path.
Prior to the recession, Iceland had one of the more thriving economies in the world, in spite of the fact that their total population (327,000) wouldn’t even fill a mid-sized American city. When the recession struck, they were among the earliest and hardest hit. However, instead of running to the vaults to shower the banks with money, they let the banks fail. They also resisted traveling down the European/Republican austerity road. Instead, they kept their social programs intact at a time when they were most needed.
And, they sent fraudulent bankers to jail.
When Iceland’s three major banks collapsed, it resulted in defaults totaling $114 billion in a country with agross domestic product (GDP) of only $19 billion. In October, 2008 the parliament passed emergency legislation to take over the domestic operations of the major banks and established new banks to handle them. They did not, however, take over any of the foreign assets or obligations. Those stayed with the original banks, right into bankruptcy.
They then brought charges against several banking executives for fraud and market manipulation, resulting in sentences ranging from four to five and a half years. As the special prosecutor said,

Why should we have a part of our society that is not being policed or without responsibility?

In the U.S., we simply tapped a few wrists with small fines, that ended up being paid by their respective banks.  (Can you say “got off scot free?”)

Sending the bank executives off to play rock hockey for a few years didn’t solve the problem, but it did send a message not to do that again.
At its worst, Icelandic currency, the Icelandic krona (ISK) was trading at around 250 ISK per Euro. In order to qualify for an IMF (International Monetary Fund) loan, Iceland raised interest rates to 18%, which, of course, attracted bank deposits. Iceland also received a $2.5 billion loan from Europe’s Nordic countries.
To power its recovery, Iceland utilized its natural advantages such as its clean, cheap geothermal energy to attract the tech industry. Icelandic commercial fishing remained strong and as the general world economy picked up, the tourist industry bloomed. The deeply depreciated krona also helped make Iceland and Icelandic products very attractive, economically.  On the banking front, they facilitated domestic debt restructuring and fiscal adjustments as conditions changed.
As to how it has all turned out, here’s what the International Monetary Fund Survey has to say about it:

Iceland has rebounded after the 2008/9 crisis and will soon surpass pre-crisis output levels with strong performance in tourism and fisheries. Debt ratios are on a downward path and balance sheets have broadly been restored. The financial sector is back on track though with some important items remaining on the docket.

As the above survey also states, Iceland is “the first 2008-10 crisis country in Europe to surpass its pre-crisis peak of economic output.”
The krona is now running 142 ISK per Euro(up from 290/1 in 2008) The 2014 inflation rate was 2.05%.(down from 12.59% in 2008) The wage indexis running at 190.9. (up from 132.8 in 2008)
Btw, they did all this while keeping their social welfare intact. (There goes another bagger day-dream.)
Iceland’s President, Olafur Ragnar Grimmson explained how the country managed to recover from the global financial disaster,

We were wise enough not to follow the traditional prevailing orthodoxies of the Western financial world in the last 30 years. We introduced currency controls, we let the banks fail, we provided support for the poor, and we didn’t introduce austerity measures like you’re seeing in Europe.

When asked whether or not other countries, Europe in particular, would succeed with Iceland’s “let the banks fail” policy, President Grimmson gave his answer,

Why are the banks considered to be the holy churches of the modern economy? Why are private banks not like airlines and telecommunication companies and allowed to go bankrupt if they have been run in an irresponsible way? The theory that you have to bail out banks is a theory that you allow bankers enjoy for their own profit, their success, and then let ordinary people bear their failure through taxes and austerity. 
People in enlightened democracies are not going to accept that in the long run.

Why the American Revolution Against “Lockdown” Must Begin Now


By Bernie Suarez
Is America now caught like a deer in the headlights staring at one
“lockdown” event after another not knowing what to do? Or is everyone
happy that lockdowns are happening so that the government can keep you
safe? Are we not paying attention to what is slowly becoming the
greatest freedom crisis ever in American history where every day is now
9/11? What’s missing now is an idea for a revolution against “lockdown”
to declare it illegal and unconstitutional once and for all. Until this
idea catches fire we are all in for some very dark days.
I came across a story this weekend about a shooting
that took place at a Denver Colorado motorcycle expo between
potentially two rival motorcycle gangs. The report was not conclusive
about who the people involved in the shooting were. The mass media
reported that there was one person killed and at least seven others
wounded. It was a fight that ended ugly. For bikers and members on both
sides it was likely a very emotional and very tense situation that at
least for now had ended.

Unlike the typical modern day often scripted mass shootings, there
was no search for a gunman or suspects on the run who no one can see or
confirm their identity until long after they are announced dead by the
police and mainstream media. There were no patsies for the police to
hunt down then murder. No sharpshooters taking aim at random people and
no disgruntled shooters on the loose.
Despite the missing elements that would normally make this a mass
shooting or a “terrorism” related event, despite the missing “domestic
extremists” element, the crazed lone shooter on psych medications and
despite the missing “ISIS” component, we heard the term “lockdown” used;
a word describing a police tactic that until just a few years ago was
reserved for special situations.

The fact of the matter is that in America today, (as I have been writing
about lately) with every passing week, “lockdown” is increasingly
becoming a very common tactic, and this should concern all Americans.
According to reports surrounding this latest shooting incident, the
hospital where some of the wounded men were treated was immediately put
into “lockdown”, meaning innocent people were immediately placed on
temporary in-house arrest without being allowed to leave.
Sooner or later Americans will have to take a stand against lockdown
because lockdown is tyranny and lockdown is martial law and neither has
any place in America.
As I’ve said many times the idea of “lockdown” was mostly introduced
in 2013, primarily via two events that occurred just a few months apart.
In February 2013, the Chris Dorner manhunt was nothing more than a planned assassination,
then in April of 2013 we had the Boston bombing aftermath where they
officially and boldly rolled out “lockdown” to the national audience.
The control system has not looked back since.
Since that time, what we are seeing is an alarming and progressively
increasing use of “lockdown” in late 2015 and early 2016 and nobody
seems to be complaining. Where are the marches against lockdown? Where
are the street rallies to end lockdown? Where are the Americans holding
signs and banners in the streets reading things like “lockdown = martial
law return to the legal system of rules now” or “ordinary arrests don’t
require lockdowns, stop abusing the constitutional rights of Americans”
or even “Hitler did lockdowns, why are we doing it?”
These activists it seems don’t exist yet because we (America) are
being fully conditioned to accept tyranny by the day. No one is even
realizing that this past week is one of the first times if not the first
time we’re hearing the term lockdown used more than once in one week in
America. It was just a couple of months ago when the mass media used
lockdown in Paris and then a few days later in Belgium to describe their
international manhunt”.
Will your neighborhood be “locked down” tomorrow? There isn’t anyone
reading this article that can confidently say no, and that is serious
cause for concern. It’s time to face the tyrannical reality America is
in. They sold “lockdown” to Americans when no one was looking and
everyone bought it. No one complained, no one thought it was odd, no one
questioned it, and now martial law lockdown is here.

Millions of Americans should have taken to the streets after Boston
bombing demanding justice for the people of Watertown, Massachusetts but
no one did. Millions should have taken up the cause of justice on
behalf of Chris Dorner’s tyrannical manhunt but no one did. And we all
watched in 2005 as FEMA approved the unconstitutional invasion of
American homes following hurricane Katrina in 2005. All of these events
were leading to one thing:  introduction of martial law in America. Now
it seems too late. Martial law is apparently here. After you read this
article and as you sleep tonight, realize that the police can declare
lockdown in your neighborhood and there is nothing you can do to stop
this. No one apparently saw this coming, no one protested, no one
stopped it and no one took action. So now we all have to deal with this
new reality.


So let me be the first to suggest that its time to raise awareness,
make noise and draft legislation in your town to STOP lockdown dead in
its tracks. Start thinking of how and when you want to take action, how
you want to word your letters to your elected officials and what you
want to say in your city council meetings, but start doing it.
Otherwise, realize that your home is no longer a safe place from
government. Realize that the constitutional protection you thought you
had against illegal search and seizure is one lockdown away from going
up in smoke. Which means that you are ONE crisis actor staged event away
from having police enter your home. Realize that you are one false flag
event away from having police rummage through your home at will. Think
about that!
More importantly, realize that it’s time to end lockdown. Understand
that America did just fine before lockdowns began and it will do just
fine after lockdown is completely abolished and ruled unconstitutional.

want to be part of the revolution to abolish lockdown, don’t you? If
revolution today starts with the freedom to spread revolutionary ideas
then let me suggest this idea. Let’s abolish lockdown before it’s too
late. It’s time to take a stand against lockdown in your local
community. Let’s challenge our local community leaders to demand that
local and federal police prove to us the effectiveness and purpose of
their lockdowns and how they make America safer. Let’s challenge them to
give us one example when lockdown was effective. It’s time to force
“lockdown” itself into the court system for its day in court.
Picture an America and a world without lockdown. Recall the days when
police went about their business of searching and arresting suspects
based on the information they had and their failure to capture wanted
suspects was dealt with by implementing standard police investigation
operations. We saw these police investigation techniques in every cop TV
show growing up. What we’re seeing now is a lust and obsession to want
to catch every suspect dead or alive now or never. We’re told that all
of life must stop until their suspect is apprehended or as we commonly
see today, murdered. We’ve put such a high value of importance on police
searches that we’ve relinquished our rights to them and bowed at their
alter. This police worship has now come at the highest price possible,
costing us all our natural born rights and freedom from tyranny and
illegal government searches and quartering in violation of the third and
fourth amendments.
Lockdown has forced me to change how I think. It really hits home
when you think of the possibilities of what could happen at any moment
and it forces me to re-evaluate what my priorities are when it comes to
activism. For anyone who thinks this issue is no big deal or that we
can’t stop lockdowns so we might as well accept it, I want to challenge
you to show me any other government action that is immediately more
threatening than lockdown. Lockdown is equivalent to having someone
point a loaded gun at your head in real-time. When its happening, all of
a sudden nothing else matters. Once lockdown begins, you are it. During
lockdown you could be mistaken for someone else as occurred in the
Chris Dorner assassination manhunt and your words and actions could be
misconstrued in a different way. During lockdown you could more readily
be accused of resisting; and if you are a gun owner attempting to
protect your home not realizing what is happening, all your rights just
went out the window and you could pay for this misunderstanding with
your life or jail time.
Will America and humanity around the globe stand up to lockdown or do
we not have the will? What does your local community think about the
morality, legality and constitutionality of lockdown? Has the issue been
brought up yet? Does anyone have the courage to push back on the police
state? Now is the time for action if you care about freedom. If you
agree please share this message.
