As Federal Reserve Challenges Trump’s Economy, States Push Back With Laws Strangling Fiat Currency

The Ron Paul-approved legislation comes as President Trump has publicly sparred with the Federal Reserve.

Kansas Gold Silver Federal Reserve

While the Federal Reserve continues manipulating interest rates in what many consider moves designed to strangle President Donald J. Trump’s roaring economy, Kansas and other states are attempting to pass legislation that would strangle fiat currency.

Kansas House Representative Michael Capps introduced legislation HB 2285 forcing the state of Kansas to recognize precious metals, such as gold and silver, as an official currency within the state. This would keep these precious medals from being taxed at the state level, and allow Kansans to bypass the seemingly anti-Trump Federal Reserve by using an alternate currency for economic transactions and stores of wealth to protect their savings from Federal Reserve meddling.

This legislation comes as President Trump has sparred frequently with the Federal Reserve, which has began to raise its historically low interest rates only as the President Trump’s economy begins to soar. In December of last year, President Trump declared that “The only problem our economy has is the Fed,” and said they “don’t understand” the economic issues the nation currently faces.

Former Texas Representative Ron Paul has endorsed the bill through his organization Campaign for Liberty, telling supporters the legislation will prove vital to dismantling the Federal Reserve’s stranglehold on the American economy.

“The Kansas Legal Tender Act would ensure a smoother transition from the Fed’s fiat currency by allowing a competing currency and legalizing gold and silver as money again,” wrote Paul in an email sent to Campaign for Liberty subscribers, “And precious metals can help protect you against the continued devaluation of Federal Reserve Notes.”

Paul also noted that while the Federal Reserve is able to manipulate the value of the American dollar, or Federal Reserve Notes, the value of precious metals has remained constant.

“In reality, gold and silver are simply excellent stores of wealth, maintaining purchasing power over time,” explained the former congressman, “Unlike the Fed’s currency that loses value over time simply because the Fed can create virtually as much of it as it wants to for free.”

“By recognizing precious metals as legal tender, Kansas legislators will help ensure you are able to survive the next inevitable recession caused by the Federal Reserve.”

Should the bill receive a committee hearing from Kansas Taxation Chairman Steven Johnson, it will then need a favorable vote to continue to the Kansas House floor before proceeding to the Senate.

Leaked Amazon Memo Shows How the Globalist Company Demonizes Their Own Workers

Bezos has been bad!

Published

on

A leaked memo from Amazon showed how the company’s CEO Jeff Bezos attended a recent meeting in which Amazon executives plotted ways to demonize a top labor organizer.

Notes from the meeting indicate that the Amazon executives are plotting a campaign to destroy the reputation of former warehouse employee Christian Smalls, an organizer who has been trying to rally Amazon workers for better wages and more benefits. They said that Smalls was “not smart or articulate,” and they hoped to make him “the face of the entire union/organizing movement.”

“He’s not smart, or articulate, and to the extent the press wants to focus on us versus him, we will be in a much stronger PR position than simply explaining for the umpteenth time how we’re trying to protect workers,” wrote Amazon General Counsel David Zapolsky in meeting notes that were circulated throughout forwarded widely within the company.

This was apparently discussed during a daily meeting that was meant to be centered around coordinating a response to the coronavirus pandemic.

“We go over the update on what’s happening around the world with our employees and with our customers and our businesses. We also spend a significant amount of time just brainstorming about what else we can do [about coronavirus],” Amazon SVP of Global Corporate Affairs Jay Carney said to describe the meeting while appearing on CNN.

But apparently their coronavirus meeting was diverted into plotting new ways to punish workers during the crisis. Amazon terminated Smalls last week after he led a protest at a Staten Island distribution facility in which several workers walked out on the job to send a message. Amazon is claiming that Smalls was fired for violating a mandatory 14-day quarantine after coming in contact with an employee who tested positive for coronavirus.

Smalls disputes the story that is being spread by Amazon about why he was fired. He is saying that his firing had nothing to do with alleged contact with an employee who tested positive for coronavirus. He claims he was fired because of concerns that he brought up with management regarding sanitation standards at the warehouse. Smalls also believes that Amazon is not being truthful about the number of workers who have been infected with coronavirus.

Other notes from the meeting lay out Amazon’s devious plan to target Smalls and make him the focal point of any response to public concerns regarding worker safety.

“We should spend the first part of our response strongly laying out the case for why the organizer’s conduct was immoral, unacceptable, and arguably illegal, in detail, and only then follow with our usual talking points about worker safety,” wrote Zapolsky in his notes from the meeting.

“Make him the most interesting part of the story, and if possible make him the face of the entire union/organizing movement,” he added.

Zapolsky attempted to rationalize his anti-worker sentiments in a groveling statement issued to VICE News after realizing his notes went public.

“I was frustrated and upset that an Amazon employee would endanger the health and safety of other Amazonians by repeatedly returning to the premises after having been warned to quarantine himself after exposure to virus Covid-19,” he said. “I let my emotions draft my words and get the better of me.”

Bezos’ brand of globalism does not put American workers first, and the coronavirus pandemic is seen by Amazon as just another excuse for the billionaire technocrat to put the squeeze on labor.
