48 Stat. 1, Public Law No. 1
The Emergency Banking Relief Act
March 9, 1933

"If ever this vast country is brought under a single government, it will be one of the most extensive corruption, indifferent and incapable of a wholesome casre over so wide a spread of surface. This will not be borne, and you will have to choose between REFORMATION and REVOLUTION. If I know the spirit of this country, the one or the other is inevitable, BEFORE ITS VENOM HAS REACHED SO MUCH OF THE BODY POLITIC AS TO GET BEYOND CONTROL, REMEDY SHOULD BE APPLIED." -- Thomas Jefferson
"The dissolution of the monetary system created by the Bretton Woods Agreements can be traced to the early 1960s. The monetary system during this time period made a DE FACTO TRANSITION from a gold standard to a dollar standard. . . The reality of dollar convertibility ended." (Public Law 94-569, 90 Stat. 2660, at pg. 5936)
"By a continuing procss of INFLATION, governments can confiscate, secretly and unobserved, an important part of the wealth of its citizens. There is no sublter, no surer means of overturning the existing basis of socirty than to debauch (DESTROY!) the currency. The process engages all the hidden forces of economic law on the side of destruction, and does it in such a manner which not one man in a million is able to diagnose." -- John Maynard Keynes, "The Economic Consequences Of Peace", 1920.
"In the absence of legal reserve requirements, BANKS CAN BUILD UP DEPOSITS BY INCREASING LOANS (Think about that!) and investments so long as they keep enough currency on hand to redeem whatever amounts the holders of deposits want to convert into currency. This unique attribute of the banking business was discovered centuries ago. . . Then bankers discovered that they could make loans merely by giving borrowers their promises to pay (bank notes). In this way, BANKS BEGAN TO CREATE MONEY" (Out of thin air... nothing at risk!). -- "Modern Money Mechanics", Federal Reserve of Chicago.
"IF THE MEDIUM which the government was AUTHORIZED (by the Constitution!) to create and establish could immediately BE EXPELLED, and substituted by one it had neither created, estimated, nor authorized - ONE POSSESSING NO INTRINSIC VALUE - the power conferred by the Constitution would be useless - wholly fruitless of every end it was designed to accomplish." -- U.S. Supreme Court: United States vs. Marigold, 50 U.S. 560, 13 L.Ed. (9 Howard) 257.
"Bank notes are the representatives of money and circulated as such only by the general consent and usage of the community. But this consent and usage are based upon the CONVERTABILITY of such notes into coin at the pleasure of the holder upon their presentation to the bank for redemption. THIS IS THE VITAL PRINICIPLE WHICH SUSTAINS THEIR CHARACTER AS MONEY. So long as they are, in fact, what they purport to be, payable on demand common consent gives them the ordinary attributes of money. But upon failure of the bank for which they were issued, when its doors were closed, then its INABILITY TO REDEEM ITS BILLS is openly avowed, THEY INSTANTLY LOSE THE CHARACTER OF MONEY, THEIR CIRCULATION AS CURRENCY CEASES with the usage and consent upon which it rested and the notes become a mere dishonored and depreciated evidence of debt." -- Westfall vs. Braley, 100 Ohio 188, 75 American Decisions 509.
31 U.S.C. 314.  Standard unit of value
The dollar of gold nine-tenths fine consisting of the weight determined under the provisions of section 821 of this title shall be the standard unit of value, and all forms of money issues or cointed by the United States shall be maintained at a parity of value with this standard, and it shall be the duty of the Secretary of Treasury to maintain such parity.
31 U.S.C. 321.  Standard for silver coins
The standard for silver coins of the United States shall be such that of one thousand parts be weight nine hundred shall be of pure metal and one hundred of alloy. The alloy of the silver coins shall be of copper.
12 U.S.C. 411  Issuance to reserve banks; nature of obligation; redemption
Federal reserve notes, to be issued at the discretion of the Federal Reserve Board [Board of Governors of the Federal Reserve System] for the purpose of making advances to Federal reserve banks through the Federal Reserve agents as hereinafter set forth and for no other purpose, are hereby authorized. The said notes shall be obligations of the United States and shall be receivable by all national and member banks and Federal reserve banks and for all taxes, customs, and other public dues. THEY SHALL BE REDEEMED IN LAWFUL MONEY ON DEMAND at the Treasury Department of the United States, in the city of Washington, District of Columbia, or at any Federal reserve bank. (Dec. 13, 1913)
The American Gold Eagle Act of 1985

Federal Reserve Notes are not legally 'Notes' because they do not promise to pay anyone at anytime and are no longer redeemable in lawful money... and they are not 'Dollars'.

A 'Dollar' is a weight of metal!

Here is Congressman Philp Crane of Illinois.
He was the author of the American Gold (*and Silver) Eagle Act of 1985:
"The power to coin money is expressly delegated to Congress under Article I, Section 8 of the Constitution. The meaning of the phrase is clear, but Congress has been ignoring it for the past 70 years, ever since it delegated power to the Federal Reserve System to print money and create credit ex nihilo. Over those 70 years, our Nation has been plagued with the worst depression, inflation, unemployments, recessions, bankruptcy, and interest rates in our history. Nothing we suffered under an imperfect standard during the 19th century can compare to the damage our economy has sustained under the management of the Federal Reserve.

The authors of the Constitution wrote Article I, Section 8 precisely for the purpose of outlawing the type of monetary system we now have. The use of the word coin rather than the word print, or the phrase emit bills of credit, was deliberately placed in the Constitution as a reaction to the debacle created by paper money printed and issued by the Continental Congress during the Revolutionary War. It is significant to note that this power of coining money is mentioned in the same sentence in the Constitution as the power to fix the standards of weights and measures, for the framers regarded money as a weight of metal and a measure of value.

For decades now, but especially for the past 10 years, we have had a medium of exchange, the Federal Reserve note, which is fluctuating in its value. As Roger Sherman, a delegate to the Constitutional Convention wrote, "If what is used as a medium of exchange is fluctuating in its value, it is no better than unjust weights and measures * * * which are condemned by the Laws of God and man." With the issuance of new gold coins by the Treasury, the Federal Reserve's monopoly on money will be challenged.
The American Gold Eagle Coin Act of 1985 represents a major step toward replacement of our present irredeemable paper money system with a gold based system." See: Congressional Record – House, Extension Of Remarks, January 3, 1985, pgs. 469, 470)
The inhabitants of Washington, D.C. are accustomed to defrauding the public and have been directly engaged in the activity for over a century. They contrived the entire systematic scheme, pledged the full faith and credit on debt instruments ("public obligations" - FRNs - 12 USC 411), debased the coinage (18 USC 332 - Public Law 89-81), dishonored and disavowed payment of those instruments (Public Law 90-269), sell the gold and silver Coins to the public at higher than face value [exchange value - 31 USC 5112(f)], and then claim that they are one-for-one, dollar-for-dollar value and that they cannot be held liable for their illicit acts and continued miscreant behavior.

"The Constitution of the United States does not secure to anyone the privilege of defrauding the public." Eaton v. Iowa, 188 U.S. 452, 454 (1903) The statute and systematic scheme is patently unconstitutional as violating the equal weights and measures clause. See: Constitution, Article I, Section 8, Clause 5. Congressman, Philip Crane clearly stated the matter and the consequences of this continued illegitimate activity.

The State and its political subdivisions are not authorized to directly or indirectly implement or engage in any act or series of acts that violate clearly enunciated prohibitions. Craig v. Missouri, 29 US 410 (1830). The State is strictly prohibited from directly or indirectly emitting Bills of Credit and from "making any Thing but gold and silver Coin a Tender in Payment of Debts." Falsely passing the blame off on Congress while claiming benefit of the same illicit and unconstitutional acts is the epitome of gross public corruption.

What is the solution?
The remedy is resetting the governmental structure under the Law of Nations to the STANDARD Ordained and Established by the Constitution for the United States of America, September 17, 1787, its lawful Bill of Rights: the First Ten Amendments, December 15, 1791, and the Coinage Act of January 12, 1792.
