Jp Cortez: Gold and Silver Are Still Money
By Rory Hall
Once in a while it seems everything aligns just right and the world spins in the orbit we choose. This happened recently just after the publication of Gold: Still Money for a Reason. The article was published on several other websites and generated quiet a bit of noise. We always like it when that happens! The really good news is Jp Cortez, Policy Director of Sound Money Defense League, reached out to me about republishing some of his work. Needless to say I was flattered and humbled that someone of his caliber would reach out to The Daily Coin.
Jp Cortez and I discussed some of the issues we face due to the hijacking of our national currency. Under President Lincoln, yes Abraham Lincoln, in 1860, was the first step in stripping the nation of its wealth and consolidating the power at the very top of the banking cabal, government and corporations. It wasn’t until 1913 and the passing of the Federal Reserve Act that the soft coup was fully realized. But to be clear, it began while Lincoln was in office.
Lincoln printed 400 million dollars worth of Greenbacks (the exact amount being $449,338,902), money that he delegated to be created, a debt-free and interest-free money to finance the War. It served as legal tender for all debts, public and private. He printed it, paid it to the soldiers, to the U.S. Civil Service employees, and bought supplies for war.
Shortly after that happened, “The London Times” printed the following: “If that mischievous financial policy, which had its origin in the North American Republic, should become indurated down to a fixture, then that Government will furnish its own money without cost. It will pay off debts and be without a debt. It will have all the money necessary to carry on its commerce. It will become prosperous beyond precedent in the history of the civilized governments of the world. The brains and the wealth of all countries will go to North America. That government must be destroyed, or it will destroy every monarchy on the globe.”
The Bankers obviously understood. The only thing, I repeat, the only thing that is a threat to their power is sovereign governments printing interest-free and debt-free paper money. They know it would break the power of the international Bankers. Source – Michael Journal
The bankers in the mid-1800s were making their first real attempts at hijacking the United States. We all know what happened to President Lincoln, a “lone wolf” that was later killed as dead men tell no tales. The bankers knew then and as they know now, controlling the currency is how real power is garnered, maintained and increased. If a few bankers control the ebb and flow of currency, laws are of no consequence and corruption is the order of the day. We have proven that over and over. Anyone with eyes to see understands we are saturated in corruption at every level of society.
This truth has been hidden, in plain sight, from the people for the past 150 years. As Mr. Cortez stated in a brilliant piece published earlier this year, Gold and silver are money, not through government decree, but because they have proven themselves to be by surviving the test of time, while maintaining their value. It is unnecessary to argue with someone about what money is or isn’t. Either they understand what is or they don’t. We can try to help, but at the end of the day most people are going to have to change the way they see value, money and currency. As of now the Federal Reserve has done a masterful job of retraining the masses to accept a lie to be money; a lie to be of value and a mirage to be solid.
The information you are about to hear is rarely heard in today’s world. This is merely the first episode with Jp Cortez. We will be diving much deeper over the coming months and years to help people see money and currency in a completely different light.
