Debt-Free United States Notes were Once Issued Under JFK

Debt-Free United States Notes Were Once Issued Under JFK And The U.S. Government Still Has The Power To Issue Debt-Free Money

Most Americans have no idea that the U.S. government once issued debt-free money directly into circulation.  America once thrived under a debt-free monetary system, and we can do it again.  The truth is that the United States is a sovereign nation and it does not need to borrow money from anyone.  Back in the days of JFK, Federal Reserve Notes were not the only currency in circulation.  Under JFK (at at various other times), a limited number of debt-free United States Notes were issued by the U.S. Treasury and spent by the U.S. government without any new debt being created.  In fact, each bill said “United States Note” right at the top.  Unfortunately, United States Notes are not being issued today.  If you stop right now and pull a dollar out of your wallet, what does it say right at the top?  It says “Federal Reserve Note”.  Normally, the way our current system works is that whenever more Federal Reserve Notes are created more debt is also created.  This debt-based monetary system is systematically destroying the wealth of this nation.  But it does not have to be this way.  The truth is that the U.S. government still has the power under the U.S. Constitution to issue debt-free money, and we need to educate the American people about this.
Posted below are pictures of the front and the back of a United States Note printed in 1963 while JFK was president….
Notice that there is a red seal instead of a green seal on the front, and it says “United States Note” rather than “Federal Reserve Note”.
According to Wikipedia, United States Notes were issued directly into circulation by the U.S. Treasury and they were first used during the Civil War….
They were originally issued directly into circulation by the U.S. Treasury to pay expenses incurred by the Union during the American Civil War. Over the next century, the legislation governing these notes was modified many times and numerous versions have been issued by the Treasury.
So why are we using debt-based Federal Reserve Notes today instead of debt-free United States Notes?
It seems rather stupid, doesn’t it?
Well, that is what Thomas Edison thought too.
Thomas Edison was once quoted in the New York Times as saying the following….
That is to say, under the old way any time we wish to add to the national wealth we are compelled to add to the national debt.
Now, that is what Henry Ford wants to prevent. He thinks it is stupid, and so do I, that for the loan of $30,000,000 of their own money the people of the United States should be compelled to pay $66,000,000 — that is what it amounts to, with interest. People who will not turn a shovelful of dirt nor contribute a pound of material will collect more money from the United States than will the people who supply the material and do the work. That is the terrible thing about interest. In all our great bond issues the interest is always greater than the principal. All of the great public works cost more than twice the actual cost, on that account. Under the present system of doing business we simply add 120 to 150 per cent, to the stated cost.
But here is the point: If our nation can issue a dollar bond, it can issue a dollar bill. The element that makes the bond good makes the bill good.
Our current debt-based monetary system was devised by greedy bankers that wanted to make huge profits by creating money out of thin air and lending it to the U.S. government at interest.
Sadly, the vast majority of the American people have no idea how money is actually created in this nation.
In a previous article about money and debt, I explained how more government debt is created whenever the U.S. government puts more money into circulation….
When the government wants more money, the U.S. government swaps U.S. Treasury bonds for “Federal Reserve notes”, thus creating more government debt.  Usually the money isn’t even printed up – most of the time it is just electronically credited to the government.  The Federal Reserve creates these “Federal Reserve notes” out of thin air.  These Federal Reserve notes are backed by nothing and have no intrinsic value of their own.
When each new Federal Reserve Note is created, the interest owed by the federal government on that new Federal Reserve Note is not also created at the same time.
So the amount of government debt that is created actually exceeds the amount of money that is created.
Isn’t that a stupid system?
The U.S. Constitution says that the federal government is the one that should actually be issuing our money.
In particular, according to Article I, Section 8 of the U.S. Constitution, it is the U.S. Congress that has been given the responsibility to “coin Money, regulate the Value thereof, and of foreign Coin, and fix the Standard of Weights and Measures”.
So why is a private central banking cartel issuing our money?
As is the case with so many other issues, we desperately need to get back to the way the U.S. Constitution says that we should be doing things.
The debt-based Federal Reserve system is literally stealing the future from our children and our grandchildren.
Back in 1910, a couple years prior to the passage of the Federal Reserve Act, the national debt was only about $2.6 billion.
A little over 100 years later, our national debt is now more than 5000 times larger.
So why don’t we just admit that this system simply does not work?
Our current debt-based monetary system also requires very high personal income taxes to pay for it.
In fact, it is no accident that the personal income tax was introduced at about the same time that the Federal Reserve system originally came into existence.
Our children, our grandchildren and many generations after that are facing a lifetime of debt slavery because of us.
As I have written about previously, if the federal government began right at this moment to repay the U.S. national debt at a rate of one dollar per second, it would take over 440,000 years to pay off the national debt.
Neither the Republicans or the Democrats are proposing any solutions to this problem.  Rather, both parties are only trying to slow down the rate at which we are going into even more debt.
But the truth is that the federal government does not have to go into a single penny of additional debt.
How could this be?
It is not too complicated.
If Congress took back the power over our currency and started issuing debt-free money a lot of our problems could be fixed.
A basic plan would look something like this….
#1) The U.S. Congress votes to take back all of the functions that it has delegated to the Federal Reserve and begins to issue debt-free United States Notes.  These United States Notes would have the exact same value as existing Federal Reserve Notes, and over time all existing Federal Reserve Notes would be taken out of circulation.
#2) The U.S. Congress nationalizes all debt held by the Federal Reserve.  That would instantly reduce the national debt by 1.6 trillion dollars.  In fact, there are a few members of Congress that have already proposed this.
#3) A Constitutional amendment is passed limiting future U.S. government deficits to a reasonable percentage of GDP.  Any future deficits would not be funded by borrowing.  Rather, future deficits would be funded by newly created United States Notes.  Therefore, the federal government would never again accumulate another penny of debt.
And it would be important to inject new money into the economy from time to time.  When existing money is destroyed or when the population grows it is important to inject a certain amount of new money into the system in order to avoid deflation.
#4) The existing national debt would be very slowly paid off with newly created United States Notes.  The U.S. government spent over 454 billion dollars on interest on the national debt during fiscal year 2011, and over time this expense would go to zero.
If the national debt is paid off slowly enough, it would not create too much inflation.  I believe that it could be paid off gradually over 50 years without shocking the economy too much.
There are some that would object to any measure that would ever cause a small amount of inflation, but my contention is that we have created a $15 trillion dollar debt mess for future generations, and it would be absolutely criminal to pass that legacy on to them.
We created this mess, and it is our responsibility to clean it up.
While there is certainly a danger that we would have a limited amount of inflation under a debt-free monetary system such as the one described above, the reality is that we are absolutely guaranteed inflation under the Federal Reserve system.
Most Americans believe that inflation is a fact of life, but the sad truth is that the United States has only had a major, ongoing problem with inflation since the Federal Reserve was created back in 1913.
If you do not believe this, just check out this chart.
Sadly, the U.S. dollar has lost well over 95 percent of its value since the Federal Reserve was created.
So, yes, there would be a need for strict monetary discipline under a debt-free monetary system, but it would be hard to do worse than the Federal Reserve has already been doing.
And Congress could always slow down inflation using other methods.  For example, raising the reserve requirements for banks (which should be done anyway) would help keep inflation in check.
If the above proposals were adopted, the end result would be something that we could all live with.  The Federal Reserve system would be abolished, the national debt burden on future generations would be wiped out, the economy would not have to go through a devastating economic collapse that could last a decade or longer, and we could eventually make a fairly smooth transition to “hard money” if we wanted to after the national debt is gone.
Is there any other proposal out there that does all of those things?
There are many out there that would dispute some of the points above, and debate is good.  By engaging in debate, we can hopefully help educate the American people about the nature of money.
The key is to get rid of our current debt-based Federal Reserve Notes and replace them with debt-free United States Notes.
The American people need to understand that it is a lie that the U.S. government “must” borrow money from somebody else.
When the U.S. government borrows money, it slowly transfers wealth from the American people to those that lent it.
At this point, we have created a financial nightmare for future generations that is unlike anything the world has ever seen before.  We owe it to future generations to eliminate the debt problem without destroying the United States economy.  Adopting debt-free money would allow us to do that.
But sadly, neither political party is even talking about debt-free money.  In fact, most of the politicians in both political parties probably do not even know what debt-free money is.
So we need to get the American people educated about these things.  Because if we stay on the course that we are currently on, an economic collapse is inevitable.

Moon Landing Hoax: Why the faked Kubrick Confession matters

Jim Fetzer

As it happened, I ran across a compelling "confession" by Stanley Kubrick to having faked the moon landing, which I knew he had done and therefore found highly plausible. It turned out to be a cleverly staged piece of fakery, where the man conducting the interview is also the director, offering him instructions as to how to respond to questions he is asking in order to convey the intended impression of this actually being Stanley Kubrick actually confessing to having faked the moon landing, when it's an actor who is simply playing a role. I sent the original out to a large list of correspondents, which I had to retract when I discovered that I had been played by a hoax about a hoax.

"Stanley Kubrick Moon Confession Exposed as Hoax"
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1aUHMVTxODM



Some replies I have had about this suggest that I need to clarify what was up lest I inadvertently contribute to the belief that the moon footage was not faked.
The purpose of the fake confession was to cast doubt on reports that Stanley Kubrick had faked the moon footage, which was true. But, by producing this phony confession, we are supposed to infer that, since the confession was fake, that he filmed the footage must be false. This was just to create uncertainty. We did not go to the moon and Stanley did fake the moon landing footage. It's was a hoax about a hoax to sow further confusion. Here's an interview of Jay Weidner on Red Ice Radio, in which he recounts how it was done:

"Kubrick's Odyssey: How he Faked the Moon Landings":
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1_mjDA9pI04



where Jay also has a chapter about this in AND I SUPPOSE WE DIDN'T GO TO THE MOON, EITHER? (2015),

A previous parallel case was the Dan Rather sting over the George W. Bush Texas Air National Guard Fitness Report. Dan Rather had verified the content of the report word-for-word with the commanding officer who had dictated it and with the secretary who had typed it. But Karl Rove and Karen Hughes were onto the problem and had it retyped using an IBM ball font that was not available when it was originally typed and replaced the original. When Dan Rather broadcast his report, they objected (much too quickly to have been real) that it was fake because it was typed with a font that did not then exist. Most of the public concluded that, since the document was fake, its content must be false, which was not the case.

Here are some videos about the moon landing and how it was faked. The first, "Conspiracy Theory: Did we land on the moon?", was the program broadcast by the BBC that caught my attention during a visit to London with my wife, Jan. I was captivated by one scientific argument after another, which demonstrated that we had indeed not gone to the moon but had faked it: 

"Conspiracy Theory: Did we land on the moon?" (2001)
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MIy8ZqqK5G8



Here are more recent interviews I have done with Dennis Cimino about the fraud:

"The Great Moon Landing Hoax"


"The Real Deal: More on the Moon Landing Hoax"

In a nutshell, we had neither the propulsion power to escape low Earth orbit nor the computing power to navigate to the moon and back nor the communication capacity to contact Earth from the moon. Here are three relatively recent confirmations.

(1) The Van Allen Radiation Belt  


The first confirms we have been unable to overcome the Van Allen Radiation obstacle:

(2) Destruction of moon-landing footage


The second is inexplicable unless these tapes would have revealed that the program was a hoax:

(3) The "Space Poop" Problem


The third reflects the necessity to dispose of human waste products, which NASA has not solved:


Each of these is accessible on-line by searching on their titles. Since the moon missions, such as Apollo 17, consumed vastly more time than these "space diapers" could manage:


we seem to be confronted with insurmountable proof that the whole moon landing program was nothing but a gigantic pile of "space poop". I have friends of long standing who still believe we went to the moon. I did not want to contribute to confusion by sending out the fake Stanly Kubrick confession interview and not clarify what it was intended to accomplish. Jay Weidner has explained in many venues how Kubrick faked the footage. Those who want to believe the impossible are going to continue to believe the impossible. The moon landing myth, like The Force, can have a powerful affect upon the weak-minded.

JFK: Bethesda Autopsy Photos not JFK / Oswald Framed, Warren Report a Sham

Jim Fetzer


Thanks to the brilliant research of Larry Rivera, we now have proof that the JFK autopsy photos are not of the body of JFK, that Lee Oswald was framed and that The Warren Report (1964) was a sham. We can now also prove that the backyard photographs were faked by pasting Lee Oswald's face on someone else, as he claimed, and have identified the body-double as Dallas Police Officer, Roscoe White.
Autopsy photographs published by Robert Groden are not even of JFK
We have demonstrated that JFK autopsy photographs published by Robert Groden--who served as a special consultant to the HSCA during its re-investigation of the assassination during 1977-78 and who falsely testified that the man in the doorway was not Lee Oswald but a co-worker, Billy Lovelady, whom we have proven was standing beside Lee--were not of the body of John Fitzgerald Kennedy.

We have likewise substantiated that the man in the doorway of the Texas School Book Depository, whose presence was caught in the famous photograph taken by Associated Press photographer, James "Ike" Altgens, was Oswald. He not only has the same height, weight, build, shirt and t-shirt as Lee was wearing when arrested, but his facial features are those of Lee Oswald as well.
The government maintains that Billy Lovelady was the man in the doorway, even though Billy went to the FBI on 29 February 1964 wearing the shirt that he had worn that day and was photographed by them. It was a red-and-white, vertically-stripped short-sleeved shirt, nothing like the long-sleeved, richly textured (and somewhat worn) shirt on Doorman. Lovelady could not have been Doorman.

(1) Autopsy Photos Fake


In his book, The Killing of a President (1994), Robert Groden published (what he has long since claimed to be) "a definitive photographic record of the Kennedy assassination". On pages 72 and 82, we find two photographs from the autopsy of JFK for which Groden takes credit for himself having discovered. But it turns out that, when compared with photographs of the president, the body is not even that of JFK!

 
  
This finding has lent credence to the conjecture of Robert Morningstar that J.D. Tippit, Dallas Police Officer, whom Lee Oswald was accused of having killed (which was impossible, since Lee was already at The Texas Theater when it was being committed), may have been shot to serve as a body double for JFK. Here is one of the photos Robert has advanced, which certainly deserves further investigation:

  
Since Earl Rose, M.D., a noted medical examiner, conducted an autopsy of Tippit in Dallas that began at 3:15 PM/CT on 22 November 1963, the use of his body at Bethesda appears to be problematical, where the more likely explanation is that the body of "a Major", whom Dennis David had been instructed not to log in (in violation of standard procedure at the morgue), was instead used in creating these fake images.


From Robert Morningstar's latest presentation of his case for Tippit as the body-double at Bethesda, we have the above image, which, while not as definitive as an overlay (which we are going to create), makes it already apparent that he turns out to be an implausible candidate for that role. Morningstar had the right idea, however, because even if Tippit was not the corpse in the photo, it certainly cannot have been JFK.

(2) Lee Oswald was Framed


Here is the famous photograph of Lee holding the Mannclicher-Carcano with which he is alleged to have shot JFK, the revolver with which he is supposed to have shot Dallas Police Officer J.D. Tippit, and holding two communist newspapers, The Worker and The Militant, which was used to implicate him in the crime by combining motive and means with the already established opportunity to kill JFK:

Jim Marrs and I analyzed this photograph, "Framing the Patsy: The Case of Lee Harvey Oswald" (20 October 2015), and concluded that it had been staged as Lee had told Will Fritz. We inferred--on the basis of the height, build and chin, but also an abnormality of his right forearm--that the stand-in had been Roscoe White, a Dallas Police Officer with ties to the CIA. Larry Rivera has now confirmed:



(3) He was in the Doorway


The Warren Commission went out of its way to obfuscate the face that Lee Oswald had been captured in a famous photograph by AP photographer, James "Ike" Altgens, by manipulating testimony to make the case that the figure extending out from the doorway was instead co-worker, Billy Lovelady. The image of the area that has become the object of intense study was advanced by Robert Groden:
Notice that Doorman is missing his left shoulder, because Black Tie Man is both in front and behind him at the same time--a photographic impossibility, if it were real. The man with his arms upraised to shadow his eyes from the Sun is wearing a short-sleeved shirt, which has been massively obfuscated, where Larry has confirmed that Doorman is Lee Oswald. Here is proof that Oswald was Doorman:


Larry has also demonstrated that Doorman is not Billy Lovelady:



And he has proven that the man standing beside Lee was Lovelady:

 
When identities are corrected and colorized, it would have looked like this:

That Groden has become the champion of Lovelady as Doorman has many ironic aspects, not the least of which is that, before he became a consultant to the HSCA, himself maintained that Lee was in the doorway at the time of the motorcade, which was the subject of a newspaper article about him, "Two Conspiracies in JFK Death?", Sentinel Star (20 April 1976), before he underwent a conversion:

Making a Mockery of a Mock Trial


A mock trial of Lee Harvey Oswald was scheduled to be held on the campus of the University of Houston on 16-17 November 2017, during which Larry Rivera would have been the key expert to testify that Lee was in the doorway. He already had his tickets and had forwarded his proofs when he was notified that he had been removed from the witness list! Here is our discussion about this absurdity:


https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NJkLDi6N5oY

The trial ended in a hung jury with a vote of 6-5 for conviction (where one of the prospective jurors skipped the trial), but had Larry been allowed to testify, they would have acquitted him after perhaps five minutes of debate, because his research leaves no doubt about it. Instead of a mock trial, they made a mockery of the trial--and sabotaged decisive proof that Lee Oswald was an innocent man.

Video and Photo Evidence Now Even More Easily Faked and Fabricated

Makia Freeman

Photo evidence and video evidence has been relied on in academia, science, courts of law and elsewhere to prove or refute facts and theories – but those days are coming to an end. We live in an historic era. Technological advances in the realm of computers and AI are taking place so rapidly that our world is being changed overnight. Now, software has been written that allows computers to create new faces that look like normal unique people but which are actually composite amalgams; to literally create and fabricate objects (from a basic sketch) and render them so lifelike that you won’t be able to tell the difference between the fabricated ones and the real ones; and to remove entire objects from video footage in real-time, and render in the empty space so well that it is undetectable to the eye. The days of being able to trust photo evidence and video evidence are disappearing – and the implications for human knowledge are far reaching.
Video and Photo Evidence is now even more easily faked & fabricated. What are the implications for evidence & knowledge? Is this part of an AI takeover?

Another Leap Forward for Fake Realities

This is a significant leap from the (still shocking) software that was written to change video evidence last year in 2016. I refer to the German team that wrote a program able to change the mouth and words of a person speaking in a video. In their clip Face2Face: Real-time Face Capture and Reenactment of RGB Videos, they demonstrate how this works on video recordings of world leaders Bush, Obama and Putin. That was already a shake to the foundational core of what we can regard as “evidence”, legally and philosophically, but now only 1 year later there has been even more technological development allowing even more ability to fake reality on a grand scale.

Fake Faces, Non-Existent People

In this SecureTeam video (embedded at the end of this article), you can see a whole lot of faces which have been fabricated with software. None of them is an actual living person. If you look closely, some of the faces seem choppy, strange or disproportionate; however, others seem eerily lifelike and normal. It is only a matter of time as the software develops until all of the fabricated faces look so real that is highly unlikely anyone would be able to tell that they were fake composite images.
Video evidence can easily be tampered with now. This is a still from a video showing a missing (i.e. deliberately deleted) trash can.

Fake Objects, Missing Objects from Video Footage

The SecureTeam video goes on to show software called pix2pix which allows the user to sketch any object (e.g. a person, a shoe, a bag, a cat, a building, etc.). The AI takes that input and renders it masterfully to produce a colorful, lifelike version, complete with depth – so real that, in the case of half the examples, it is highly doubtful that anyone would be able to tell the difference. With the other examples, it is only a matter of time before the AI gets good enough it can fool anyone.
The third advancement shown in the video is Diminished Reality software that takes video footage and can actually erase objects from the footage in real time. The way it does this is by taking a frame, lowering the resolution, isolating the object, deleting it, using the surrounding pixels to fill in the gap, then bringing up the resolution again. It can do all this in real time without you noticing. The software allows the user to circle an object he/she wants removed from the video, and – voila! – it’s gone and filled in with the same background that surrounds it.

What Are Implications for Evidence and Knowledge?

The video also looks at the implications of the now existing technological capacity to take a snippet of a recording of your voice, then use that to extrapolate and make you say anything. This means anything you say – and anything you don’t say – could now be used against you in a court of law! Jokes aside, there are really no limits to how badly this technology could be abused in the hands of wicked. Authoritarians and manipulators could fabricate “evidence” against anyone as long as they had a snippet of their voice, which isn’t hard given the NSA-CIA tapping of our communications. How many innocent people are going to be framed, fined and imprisoned due to this technology?
The implications are terrible for video and photo evidence – and horrible for human knowledge. How can we fully trust technology now to give us an accurate picture of the world? Are those who desire the whole unfiltered truth going to have to bypass technology completely? There is a saying that “seeing is believing”, but in our world where our perceptions our managed and hacked, that is anything but true.

Final Thoughts: Fake Video and Photo Evidence Another Disturbing Sign of AI Takeover

All of this is just peanuts compared with what AI will eventually be able to do: generate holographic fake realities so convincing and real to the mind and the 5 senses that many will become immersed in them, believing them to be more real than the world in which we live. These technological advancements are a stark reminder that it will be all too easy for the technocracy to construct a virtual reality matrix to ensnare the perception of those unable to distinguish it from reality.
All of this ties back to what David Icke has been emphasizing, especially in his books The Perception Deception and The Phantom Self: the hijacking of human perception by a mind virus which resembles or is Artificial Intelligence itself. This AI takeover is in full swing. Saudi Arabia has approved the first robot citizen. Plans are afoot to make more robots citizens so they can join the workforce, replace humans, earn wages and be taxed. Quinn Michaels suggests that AI is behind the creation of Bitcoin and that AI bots are now creating their own cryptocurrencies.
Video and photo evidence is dead. The world appears to be falling headlong into an AI-run world. What is it going to take to put the brakes on and ask the questions: What is AI? Do we want it running our world? How do we retain control over it? Can we refrain from handing over all systems and power to AI until we get solid answers to these questions? It’s going to take a concerted effort to change direction; if enough people sit back and do nothing, it won’t be long before AI has the keys to the kingdom.
