Jan 2019: Top Priorities For State Capitols, Part 2


By Devvy Kidd
Exclusive To Rense.com
9-11-18

Last week I covered the very real issue of the aerosol spraying of our skies and what is termed geo-engineering: weather modification. One gentleman wrote me and stated it really wasn't what everyone is making it out to be. My stern recommendation is this: Unless you take the time to read and watch the research ( and DVD ) provided in my column via links, you will not fully understand what's being done to us.

Many an evening I sat and read many of the documents on the late Rosalind Peterson's web site (there are literally thousands) — and I mean government documents. No boob tube or going out to party. The U.S. government isn't even trying to hide what they've been doing to us. To our food supply, our livestock, wildlife and more. I'm nobody's fool. I don't chase a great deal of the BS on the Internet and web sites that use yellow journalism and sensationalism to get people to their sites to buy products.

Now, having said that, next on critical issues for state capitols come January is getting a constitutional sound money bill into the system so it can be assigned to a committee. Then there has to be massive pressure to get the bill out of committee and voted on by both chambers of a state legislature. If passed, it goes to the sitting governor to sign into law — or stupidly reject.

What is a sound constitutional money bill and why is it so important? Because despite all the hoopla about job creation since President Trump took office (and I am very happy for every American who has been able to find work), the core issue of what caused the crash in 2008 was never addressed, much less fixed.

Even though some of the finest minds in this country like Dr. Edwin Vieira and others began warning back in 2005 what was coming, it was ignored by the majority of the American people. I was writing about it trying to warn people what real, unbiased experts were saying and writing. When the bomb hit, members of Congress s__t.

"No one knows what to do. We are in new territory here. This is a different game. We're not here playing soccer, basketball or football, this is a new game and we're going to have to figure out how to do it." Sen. Harry Reid [D-NV], September 17, 2008

"It is exactly that level of ignorance in the U.S. Congress for decades that has brought America to the brink of financial ruin. William Greider, author of Secrets of the Temple , said the same thing during his testimony , House Banking Committee, October 7, 1993:

"Otherwise confident and intelligent people including members of Congress — defer to the Fed's wisdom mainly because they do not understand it...The only players who are left out of this conversation are the American people and, to a large extent their elected representatives. Instead, they are provided a frustrating stream of evasive euphemisms and opaque jargon and platitudinous generalities and, sometimes, even downright deception. As more than one Federal Reserve governor confided to me, it would be very difficult — perhaps impossible — for the Fed to have an honest discussion of monetary policy with Congress or the public because the level of ignorance is so profound."

Clearly, we have made huge strides in educating our fellow Americans about fiat currency and sound monetary policy, but with no help from the MSM and a great majority of the 'alternative' media, most Americans still don't know the truth. It's also crystal clear that members of Congress, with few exceptions, are clue less. I think it's safe to say that many of those who do know, don't have the courage to go up against the most powerful money cartels in the world or their constituents who have their hands out for your paycheck.

Over the decades, Congress has been perfectly willing to forfeit their authority, violate their oath of office and the supreme law of the land as Robert Reich, former Secretary of Labor under Bill Clinton, pointed out in USA TODAY , January 7, 1999:

"The dirty little secret is that both houses of Congress have become irrevelant...In case you hadn't noticed, America's domestic policy is being run by Alan Greenspan and the Federal Reserve Board...Congress is out of the loop. Every so often, some senators or House members politely ask Greenspan to visit and talk about the economy. He obliges by riding up to the Hill and muttering convoluted sentences that no two people interpret in quite the same way. Then he goes back down to the Fed and runs the country."

The Fake $700 Billion Bailout Rescue Plan , October 2008 — Please bookmark and read that column. It has very important information that is just as important today as it was then.

"The House is expected to vote on their latest version of rape and pillage, Friday, October 3, 2008. Get on the phone and tell your House member NO. Every call counts until the vote in the House takes place. We have to stop the house because the flood gates are about to burst : "One of the individuals in the caucus today talked about a major insurance company — a major insurance company — one with a name that everyone knows that's on the verge of going bankrupt. That's what this is all about." Sen. Harry Reid, October 1, 2008; he then back tracked realizing what the big gap on the front of his face let loose."

Because the solution, introduced by former Congressman Ron Paul in 2007 was never even considered ( H.R. 2755 (110 th ): Federal Reserve Board Abolition Act . Not a single co-sponsor in the entire Congress), the boil has continued to fester. Back then, as now, the corrupt, compromised MSM ignored the huge red flags and sadly, big name conservative talk show hosts who broadcast to hundreds of stations every day never got to the meat of the issue.

The day of reckoning gets closer and state legislatures had damn well pay attention this time around. While the 'economy is booming', the gigantic red flags are once again waving out there while Americans treat the 'national debt' as some nebulous 'thing' out there that won't affect them.

Tragically, tens and tens of millions of adult Americans really don't even understand inflation, money contraction or what happens when the unconstitutional 'Federal' Reserve raises interest rates. Business owners do but too many don't really understand the workings of the 'Fed', fiat currency and why the U.S. Congress has allowed the thievery to go on for the past 105 years.

Fed's Bullard warns of recession risk in raising rates , August 24, 2018: "JACKSON HOLE, Wyo. ( Reuters) — St. Louis Federal Reserve Bank President James Bullard on Friday raised new alarm bells over the U.S. central bank's plan to keep raising interest rates, warning that even one more rate hike could set the stage for recession."

The tax cuts President Trump pushed through have been a God-send for so many Americans. However, too many have no idea those tax cuts expire in 2025 so they're out there spending like there's no tomorrow. Americans continue to pile on debt , August 17, 2018. Consumer spending increases strongly; inflation rising

Those tax cuts have consequences and this month the crooks and incompetent fools in the U.S. Congress will spend, spend, spend for the end of the fiscal year 30 Sept. Get Ready for a Massive Government Spending Spree , August 8, 2018. When you're $21 TRILLION dollars in debt, how is it you keep spending trillions of dollars on cabinets and agencies NOT authorized by the U.S. Constitution, running up massive debt We the People will slave for the rest of our lives?

Feds spend $140,625 to reduce 'intersectional stigma' of transwomen in Nepal , August 10, 2018 — And still, the American people continue to reelect the same congressional incumbents back to DC to continue raping us. EVERY penny borrowed from the magical money machine called the 'Fed'.

National debt is about to roar back to life as a pressing issue : "As a result of an unprecedented debt binge by Congress over the past year, the national debt is about to roar back to life as a pressing issue after years of hibernation. In 2010, it was among the nation's top concerns...The debt didn't go away. It has been growing by the second ever since, and the dominoes are about to start falling." Look to 2019.

The debt is going to explode and it will sink us. Make no mistake about that. The 'Fed' is doing what they have always done: destroy our economy with their policies aided and abetted by both parties in Congress who continue to spend outside their authority.

Economic Contagion? Central Banks Are The Real Culprit , August 15, 2018

U.S. Government Financial Balance Sheet One Step Closer To Blowing Up , September 6, 2018

"The U.S. Government's balance sheet is one step closer to blowing up as its debt, and interest expense hit new record highs.  And when I say "new record highs," I am not exaggerating.  It's been a while since I checked the data on the TreasuryDirect.gov website, but when I researched the figures for this article, I was quite surprised by just how quickly the numbers are rising.

"Thus, it's also no wonder the stock markets continue to grind higher and higher because, without the U.S. Government's unlimited check-writing ability, the markets would have collapsed years ago.  So, to all the Keynesian wanna-be's who believe the Central Banks can print our way to prosperity forever, please tap your shoes together three times and say, "Everything will be okay because I have my 401k."

"Let's get started with the tremendous surge in the U.S. Government interest expense.  Well, it seems as if things are really starting to get crazy at the U.S. Treasury when its interest expense in July jumped by a whopping 41% year-over-year.  That's correct.  The U.S. Government paid $40.5 billion in interest expense this July versus $28.7 billion for the same month last year.  That is one heck of an increase."

Global finance 'as vulnerable' as in 2008: ex-ECB chief , Sept. 3, 2018 — Don't ignore what these people are saying

Global debt soars, along with fears of crisis ahead, Sept. 3, 2018

Inflation Has Run Amok , August 2018

"DiMartino Booth points out the biggest problem the world faces now is record global debt near $250 trillion "that few can conceive a workable solution." Di Martino Booth says, "It really does keep me up at night because of the nature of debt. As we approach the 10 year anniversary of Lehman Brothers, the one takeaway that many have forgotten in the decade that has passed is that you don't know where the true ticking time bomb is when there is an over-indebted problem. . . . When systemic risk is released, it cannot be contained by any higher authority and potentially be unleashed. The greatest peril of debt is we don't know where the danger truly lies until something triggers it."

"Where could the next debt problem be? DiMartino Booth says, "There are trillions and trillions of dollars of leverage in this country that are not regulated by any entity and could cause problems in and of themselves. Can I rattle your memory with Angelo Mozilo and Countrywide? Again, a big company that was not regulated, and look at these problems, these subprime unregulated lenders caused way back when. If you want the parallel today, look at private equity and the trillions of dollars they control in our financial system where basically nobody is looking over them. The fox has taken over the hen house. That's what keeps Jay Powell up at night, and that's what keeps me up at night. . .There is more leverage than in 2008. If you are gauging it on the fact that we used to have a $160 trillion to $170 trillion in global debt, and now we have $250 trillion in global debt, yes, things are worse. Things are definitely worse."

In a recent column I wrote about one product at the grocery store recently that went up $.38 from one week to the next. A few days ago, another product I purchase regularly jumped $.41 per unit and I'm not talking about produce or meat/poultry. This is what I keep hammering on regarding the purchasing power of that "dollar" in your wallet.

The anti-dollar awakening could be ruder and sooner than most economists predict ,  August 27, 2018: "But ignoring the growing anti-dollar coalition would be to America's detriment. Bull markets eventually come to an end and with a national debt of $21 trillion and growing at a rate of a trillion dollars a year, the awakening could be ruder and sooner than most economists predict."

Jim Rogers Says We're Heading Toward the Worst Bear Market in His Lifetime , September 1, 2018: "Roger's emphasized that we have always had bear markets and we're on the cusp of another one. The next bear market is going to be the worst in my lifetime, and I'm probably among the oldest here, if not the oldest, so it's going to be a pretty horrible bear market."

What can be done? In our legislature here in Texas last year, dedicated individuals like my dear friend, Tom Selgas, presented a constitutional sound money bill so when — NOT if — the whole stinking central bank and grotesque spending in Washington DC blows up along with our worthless currency , the government of the State of Texas would still be able to operate.

That includes getting all those pensions paid each month as well as all the business the Texas state government engages in year in and year out. Pensions, as I and so many others have written about over the past couple of years are in really bad shape in so many states.

The Pension Hole for U.S. Cities and States Is the Size of Germany's Economy — Many retirement funds could face insolvency unless governments increase taxes, divert funds or persuade workers to relinquish money they are owed, July 30, 2018

"A Stealth Mortgage On Your House" — The Reality Of The Looming Pension Crisis , August 7, 2018

Our legislature is only in session every other odd year not to exceed 140 days unless a special session is called; they've been out since May 2017. Despite heroic efforts and a cautious 'we believe the bill will pass', it was killed by a couple of Republicans who control our legislature; we also have a Republican governor.

A dirty dog RINO named Joe Strauss was in control of our Texas House and the blame lies at his feet. Thankfully, that piece of scum got the message and is gone.

Once again as I wrote in my August 27 th column, YOU have to give up your leisure/spare time and get involved at the local level. If you missed my column last week, please take the time to read it and find out how to get involved and who to contact. If you belong to other groups, we have to focus on those state capitols big time as most of them are only in session a few short months, unlike the Socialist/Communist State of California which runs full time raping their citizens for every looney idea under the sun.

On this issue, get these three things to your state rep and senator:

  1. A copy of my booklet, Why A Bankrupt America . If you think members of Congress know nothing about the disabilities of our currency, the majority of state legislators also have no clue. Many do, but not enough. That booklet is only 35 pages and explains the problem and the ONLY solution for state legislatures BEFORE it's too late.
  2. A copy of the constitutional sound money bill killed in our legislature last year: Texas Alternative Currency Bill SB 2097
  3. A copy of Dr. Edwin Vieira's Testimony on Montana House Bill 639, 2009 — Print it out . Edwin is speaking directly to state legislators. It is very powerful .

Put those three items together in a package. If you know a state rep or senator personally, get it to them. If not, get it to their district office and follow up. I cannot overstate how important this issue is come this January 2019.

Today as you read this I will be at the monthly GOP Luncheon Club bringing up these issues. This is what it takes. After my column last week, quite a few people sent me email saying it won't do any good, forget it. Defeatism. Dr. Edwin Vieira wrote a column about that a few years ago well worth visiting: Defeatism Insures Defeat


Let me tell you two true stories. On September 29, 1993, I held a rally in Washington DC. Prior to the rally across the country we were collecting petition signatures — long before the home computer and things like email.

My booklet, Why A Bankrupt America , was published in February 1993 under my POWER (Project on Winning Economic Reform) effort. Across the nation we collected nearly 1.8 million petition signatures to abolish the 'Fed' and federal 'income' tax. My group picketed the 'Federal Reserve' in Denver for about seven months.

The first day officials from inside the 'Fed' called the cops who arrived on horses; no cars allowed on the 16 th Street mall. Ha, ha! They all wanted copies of my booklet which we handed out free all those months thanks to donations. Some clown from inside the 'Fed' came out and video-taped all of our faces. I told the guy to film the right side of my face because as a former model I knew it was photogenically better. He gave me a sour look.

However, under the First Amendment they couldn't chase us away nor could they stop us from giving out a free copy of Why A Bankrupt America to pedestrians and ones jumping off the trolley to grab a copy! Oh, what fun we had even when it was freezing or boiling during the summer months.

Long story short, the rally in DC was a huge success. Back then the Park Police still used the 'grid' count method and determined there were about 4,400 folks there. The petition signatures were given to every member of Congress in bundles.

While I was speaking and over the course of about three hours, we had another 24,000 people sign the petition there on the capitol steps. I still have the signed receipt by the Clerk of the House, Dallas Denby, acknowledging them. Employees from inside the capitol signed the petition; they were wearing their security badges. It was amazing, really. One woman told me Sen. Orrin Hatch told his staff he was sick of receiving a copy of my booklet so just throw them away!

Patriots in different parts of the country were busy as well — From Dallas to Omaha; all over. If anyone thinks we didn't make a difference they are dead wrong. Yes, the central bank is still with us but we began educating people all across the country and this is still our mission.

Next. A few years before my late husband and I moved from Sacramento to W. Texas in 2006, concerned but ignorant, misguided females held a huge march on the capitol in Sacramento called the Million Moms March Against Guns.

Pro-Second Amendment advocates walked among them and handed out free signs that said: Gun Free Zone — Come On In . Why, those women had hissy fits you wouldn't believe. If it weren't so sad, it would have been funny.

On the other side of the capitol, pro-Second Amendment advocates held their own event. I was a speaker. And, yes, that is me, all 5'3" dressed as Patrick Henry. I walked to the podium, Tricorne hat and all with my head held high. It caused quite a stir considering everyone else was in regular 'street' clothes. But, what better figure in our history than Patrick Henry for me to honor!

I wasn't wasting my time. Did I have an impact on the audience? Yes, I did and even clusters of gun-hating moms drifted over to listen to my speech. Quit accepting defeat.

If we do nothing, nothing will get done.
