Ron: In 1993 Rep. James Traficant placed the "Strawman Illusion" on the Congressional record by telling the US Congress that in 1933, the federal United States hypothecated all of the
present and future properties, assets and labor of their "subjects,"
the 14th Amendment U.S. citizen, to the Federal Reserve System.The truth is out there folks.
The Bankruptcy of The United States
United States Congressional Record, March 17, 1993 Vol. 33, page H-1303
Speaker-Rep. James Traficant, Jr. (Ohio) addressing the House:
"Mr. Speaker, we are here now in chapter 11. Members of Congress are
official trustees presiding over the greatest reorganization of any
Bankrupt entity in world history, the U.S. Government. We are setting
forth hopefully, a blueprint for our future. There are some who say it
is a coroner’s report that will lead to our demise.
It is an established fact that the United States Federal Government
has been dissolved by the Emergency Banking Act, March 9, 1933, 48
Stat. 1, Public Law 89-719; declared by President Roosevelt, being
bankrupt and insolvent. H.J.R. 192, 73rd Congress m session June 5,
1933 - Joint Resolution To Suspend The Gold Standard and Abrogate The
Gold Clause dissolved the Sovereign Authority of the United States and
the official capacities of all United States Governmental Offices,
Officers, and Departments and is further evidence that the United
States Federal Government exists today in name only.
The receivers of the United States Bankruptcy are the International
Bankers, via the United Nations, the World Bank and the International
Monetary Fund. All United States Offices, Officials, and Departments
are now operating within a de facto status in name only under Emergency
War Powers. With the Constitutional Republican form of Government now
dissolved, the receivers of the Bankruptcy have adopted a new form of
government for the United States. This new form of government is known
as a Democracy, being an established Socialist/Communist order under a
new governor for America. This act was instituted and established by
transferring and/or placing the Office of the Secretary of Treasury to
that of the Governor of the International Monetary Fund. Public Law
94-564, page 8, Section H.R. 13955 reads in part: "The U.S. Secretary
of Treasury receives no compensation for representing the United
Gold and silver were such a powerful money during the founding of the
united states of America, that the founding fathers declared that only
gold or silver coins can be "money" in America. Since gold and silver
coinage were heavy and inconvenient for a lot of transactions, they
were stored in banks and a claim check was issued as a money
substitute. People traded their coupons as money, or "currency."
Currency is not money, but a money substitute. Redeemable currency must
promise to pay a dollar equivalent in gold or silver money. Federal
Reserve Notes (FRNs) make no such promises, and are not "money." A
Federal Reserve Note is a debt obligation of the federal United States
government, not "money." The federal United States government and the
U.S. Congress were not and have never been authorized by the
Constitution for the united states of America to issue currency of any
kind, but only lawful money, gold and silver coin.
It is essential that we comprehend the distinction between real money
and paper money substitute. One cannot get rich by accumulating money
substitutes, one can only get deeper into debt. We the People no longer
have any "money." Most Americans have not been paid any "money" for a
very long time, perhaps not in their entire life. Now do you comprehend why you feel broke? Now, do you understand why you are "bankrupt," along with the rest of the country?
Federal Reserve Notes (FRNs) are unsigned checks written on a closed
account. FRNs are an inflatable paper system designed to create debt
through inflation (devaluation of currency). when ever there is an
increase of the supply of a money substitute in the economy without a
corresponding increase in the gold and silver backing, inflation occurs.
Inflation is an invisible form of taxation that irresponsible
governments inflict on their citizens. The Federal Reserve Bank who
controls the supply and movement of FRNs has everybody fooled. They
have access to an unlimited supply of FRNs, paying only for the
printing costs of what they need. FRNs are nothing more than promissory
notes for U.S. Treasury securities (T-Bills) - a promise to pay the
debt to the Federal Reserve Bank.
There is a fundamental difference between "paying" and "discharging"
a debt. To pay a debt, you must pay with value or substance (i.e. gold,
silver, barter or a commodity). With FRNs, you can only discharge a
debt. You cannot pay a debt with a debt currency system. You cannot
service a debt with a currency that has no backing in value or
substance. No contract in Common law is valid unless it involves an
exchange of "good & valuable consideration." Unpayable debt
transfers power and control to the sovereign power structure that has
no interest in money, law, equity or justice because they have so much
Their lust is for power and control. Since the inception of central banking, they have controlled the fates of nations.
The Federal Reserve System is based on the Canon law and the
principles of sovereignty protected in the Constitution and the Bill of
Rights. In fact, the international bankers used a "Canon Law Trust" as
their model, adding stock and naming it a "Joint Stock Trust." The U.S.
Congress had passed a law making it illegal for any legal "person" to
duplicate a "Joint Stock Trust" in 1873. The Federal Reserve Act was
legislated post-facto (to 1870), although post-facto laws are strictly
forbidden by the Constitution. [1:9:3]
The Federal Reserve System is a sovereign power structure separate and
distinct from the federal United States government. The Federal Reserve
is a maritime lender, and/or maritime insurance underwriter to the
federal United States operating exclusively under Admiralty/Maritime
law. The lender or underwriter bears the risks, and the Maritime law
compelling specific performance in paying the interest, or premiums are
Assets of the debtor can also be hypothecated (to pledge something as a
security without taking possession of it.) as security by the lender or
underwriter. The Federal Reserve Act stipulated that the interest on
the debt was to be paid in gold. There was no stipulation in the
Federal Reserve Act for ever paying the principle.
Prior to 1913, most Americans owned clear, allodial title to property,
free and clear of any liens or mortgages until the Federal Reserve Act
"Hypothecated" all property within the federal United States to the
Board of Governors of the Federal Reserve, -in which the Trustees
(stockholders) held legal title. The U.S. citizen (tenant, franchisee)
was registered as a "beneficiary" of the trust via his/her birth
certificate. In 1933, the federal United States hypothecated all of the
present and future properties, assets and labor of their "subjects,"
the 14th Amendment U.S. citizen, to the Federal Reserve System.
In return, the Federal Reserve System agreed to extend the federal
United States corporation all the credit "money substitute" it needed.
Like any other debtor, the federal United States government had to
assign collateral and security to their creditors as a condition of the
loan. Since the federal United States didn’t have any assets, they
assigned the private property of their "economic slaves", the U.S.
citizens as collateral against the unpayable federal debt. They also
pledged the unincorporated federal territories, national parks forests,
birth certificates, and nonprofit organizations, as collateral against
the federal debt. All has already been transferred as payment to the
Unwittingly, America has returned to its pre-American Revolution,
feudal roots whereby all land is held by a sovereign and the common
people had no rights to hold allodial title to property. Once again, We
the People are the tenants and sharecroppers renting our own property
from a Sovereign in the guise of the Federal Reserve Bank. We the
people have exchanged one master for another.
This has been going on for over eighty years without the "informed
knowledge" of the American people, without a voice protesting loud
enough. Now it’s easy to grasp why America is fundamentally bankrupt.
Why don’t more people own their properties outright?
Why are 90% of Americans mortgaged to the hilt and have little or no
assets after all debts and liabilities have been paid? Why does it feel
like you are working harder and harder and getting less and less?
We are reaping what has been sown, and the results of our harvest is a
painful bankruptcy, and a foreclosure on American property, precious
liberties, and a way of life. Few of our elected representatives in
Washington, D.C. have dared to tell the truth. The federal United
States is bankrupt. Our children will inherit this unpayable debt, and
the tyranny to enforce paying it.
America has become completely bankrupt in world leadership, financial
credit and its reputation for courage, vision and human rights. This is
an undeclared economic war, bankruptcy, and economic slavery of the
most corrupt order! Wake up America! Take back your Country." [emphasis
Comment by Thunderhead (22/6/07): This momentous speech signed his (James Traficant's) political death warrant. I wonder what ever became of James Traficant. He was on par with the founders of this great land.
... Special attention should be paid to the astounding information about
how we are under the maritime law of contracts and not common law. This
relates to why the U.S. flags in official buildings fly the gold tassel
and fringe, indicating a state of martial law in a perpetual national
emergency. Rhetorically, could it also indicate that all wars are
The Federal Reserve is ex post facto to 1870, I read
somewhere that is the first time the U.S. government had to go hat in
hand to the Rothschilds and settle bankruptcy terms.
This transcription is not punctuated quite correctly. I tried to correct some of it.
(23/6/07) This is important, so I will try to outline the significance of this speech a little.
Under common law gold and silver are considered lawful money for paying
debts. Since any central bank-issued fiat currency is merely a
substitute for lawful money, it discharges a debt, but does not pay it.
Said another way, we are getting something for nothing. Sounds good at
first, but there is a terrible price to pay. For one thing, nothing
bought with a money substitute is really owned, either, and the State
can confiscate it at any time.
The worst part is that we have to pay the federal government, no matter
what evil it commits. We cannot question the national debt (14th
Amendment). We cannot invoke the U.S. Constitution in tax court.
Because we use a worthless money substitute with limited liability to discharge our debts, we are tax slaves to ZOG. http://goldismoney.info/forums/showthread.php?p=641790
Comment by RileyTheWiley (4/17/09):
I think it was prescient. Traficant had his eyes open, which is
probably why he went to prison. He also raised hell about the Demjanjuk
frame-up and the TWA800 shootdown.
About that time I started seeing newspaper articles about the mafia and
official corruption, which seemed to be totally out of control in
Youngstown, Ohio, of all places. I didn't make the connection until
they were hauling Traficant off to prison. Youngstown was his beat. The
articles were a warning which he failed to heed.
Someone steps out of line, they start looking for evidence of wrongdoing. Sooner or later, they find something.

I just read a comment posted to a Youtube video about Rep. Traficant that said he may be freed soon. In the meantime:
