Liberty Dollar founder Bernard von NotHaus on Peter Schiff Show Friday April 1

This is just in from Bernard von NotHaus

Dear Liberty Dollar Supporters!

If you have been appalled with the government’s comments trying to paint me as a “unique terrorist,” you are not alone. The gov is now trying to brand all local non-government currencies as illegal and anybody who expresses opposition to the current US monetary policy is a “unique terrorist.” Since the Liberty Dollar trial the word “terrorist” has lost any rational meaning and has morphed to simply mean, “doing something the government doesn’t like.”

Seth Lipsky’s article in The New York Sun regarding a “Unique form of Terrorism” confirms the gov’s intention to tailor “terrorism” to any definition they want or need for any occasion. As a result, the adverse reaction to government’s “terrorist” comments has generated a tremendous “blow back” in their face.

So I am pleased to announce I will be a guest on the Peter Schiff Show at 11:00, this Friday, April 1, 2011. This is the first time I have spoken publicly since my conviction. The interview will be very informative so I urge you to tune into Peter’s live radio show at http://www.schiffradio.com/. The show’s toll free number is 866.226.5620.

For over twenty years, Peter Schiff has been the forerunner to accurately forecast the U.S. stock market, economy, real estate, the mortgage meltdown, credit crunch, sub-prime debacle, commodities, gold and the dollar. He has distinguished himself as an expert on money, economic theory, and international investing. Peter’s best-selling book, “Crash Proof: How to Profit from the Coming Economic Collapse” has cast him as a legend in predicting the course of the US dollar and what is best for your money.

I have been consistently impressed with Peter’s investment advice and his dedication to those values that the Liberty Dollar represents. It is an honor to be on his show.

Please note: Currently, Peter Schiff is President and Chief Global Strategist for Euro Pacific Capital that is not affiliated with or responsible for the content of SchiffRadio.com.

I hope you can join Peter and I for an engaging interview – one not to be missed!

Monetary Reformer Convicted in Liberty Dollar Case

According to an FBI press release dated March 18, 2011, Bernard von NotHaus, 67, founder of NORFED and creator of the Liberty Dollar silver coin, has been convicted by a federal jury of “making, possessing, and selling his own coins.” The conviction of von Nothaus demonstrates just how far through the looking glass we have gone. According to the US government, anyone who advocates monetary reform (or any sort of government reform) may be a “terrorist.”

Here is a chilling quote from the FBI press release:

“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.”

It is evident that Ms. Tompkins has no idea what “legitimate currency” is, or that what she purports to be protecting is anything but “our democratic form of government.” The actual situation is well stated by J. Neil Schulman in his recent post at Rational Review:

“If there is such a thing as economic terrorism, it has been conducted without punishment by the financial elites who own and operate the Federal Reserve Bank. For the Department of Justice of the United States to overlook this mega-crime and prosecute a man whose goal was to enforce the law as written in the Constitution they have taken an oath to obey is an obscene reversal of fact and language. If there is such a thing as economic terrorism, the Federal Reserve is the economic equivalent of al-Qaeda, and its ravaging of the economy is the 9/11 of U.S. economic history.” (03/22/11)

This case is far from settled, and will hopefully serve to revive the political debate about money and finance, and ultimately advance the cause of free money and free banking.

By the way, Glenn beck will plug G. Edward Griffin’s book, The Creature from Jekyll Island, on Friday 2011 March 25. The entire Glenn Beck show that day will be devoted to an exposé of the Federal Reserve. The Glen Beck program is aired weekdays on Fox News at 5 PM Eastern time. –t.h.g.
