In the ’80’s the accolades were still pouring in for FDR, this was true for JFK. As we all know FDR was elected for four terms, died in office and was succeeded by the GREATEST PRESIDENT OF ALL TIME, HARRY TRUMAN. Getting back to FDR though we find many faults with the media reports during his four terms in office.

FDR promulgates executive order 6012 outlawing the private ownership of GOLD. Where it all began, in 1933. The press gave FDR a pass; like they gave one to Obama. FDR set the tone for the Deep State taking of private property without due process. Imagine what else he had up his sleeve, but nobody questioned his ultimate motives.

The stated reason for the order was that hard times had caused “hoarding” of gold, stalling economic growth and making the depression worse. The New York Times, on April 6, 1933, p. 16, wrote under the headline “Hoarding of Gold”, “The Executive Order issued by the President yesterday amplifies and particularizes his earlier warnings against hoarding. On March 6, taking advantage of a wartime statute that had not been repealed, he issued Presidential Proclamation 2039 that forbade the hoarding ‘of gold or silver coin or bullion or currency,’ under penalty of $10,000 and/or up to five to ten years imprisonment.”

Again, we reiterate the Deep State which, under FDR, took control of peoples lives. But that is not the main course here, only the appetizer. FDR was a very deceiving individual. We bring you back to his wife, a fifth cousin once removed.  Eleanor discovered her husband’s affair with Lucy Mercer in 1918, she resolved to seek fulfillment in a public life of her own.  Again this reminds us of JFK’s marital affairs which by the way were covered up with the utmost of zeal. He was careful never to be seen using his wheelchair in public, and great care was taken to prevent any portrayal in the press that would highlight his disability. Moving forward in years we are reminded of FDR’s track record, one that was never critically questioned during his four terms.


The recently discovered film clip of President Franklin D. Roosevelt being pushed in a wheelchair, despite showing neither Roosevelt’s face nor the wheelchair, has become an object of considerable public interest. One reason people find the clip so fascinating is that it seems to represent a radically different era in American political life—one in which the president could rely on the press corps to help him hide from the larger public something so glaringly obvious as the fact that he was a paraplegic from having contracted polio at age 39.

An NBC Nightly News report on the discovery stated that there was “a gentlemen’s agreement” between FDR and the press corps to hide the extent of his disability, and the Associated Press wrote that it was “virtually a state secret.” That has long been the conventional wisdom, repeated in countless books and articles. But it is inaccurate. In fact, the press sometimes described his condition in great detail.



Countries the world over have seen their currencies crash faster than an Egyptian jetliner.  Ask the poor souls in Venezuela how much their currency is worth. They remind us of the siege of Leningrad during WWII when the population hunkered down eating everything they could; not a rat, mouse or the “soles of their shoes” were spared. Venezuelans will tell you what the peso is worth “NADA”, nothing; you can’t even by toilet paper with it – so they use it for toilet paper.

The higher the price of gold goes the worse it will be for the status quo. Remember, the Central Banks were set up by politicians to print money ostensibly to feed their minions, this became the loop for reelection; it continues today. Once the printing stops, the true revolution begins, the free-loaders will no longer be in control, but the men/women of conscience and integrity will once again rule. Work will be rewarded not the other way around. Let us remind you how dangerous gold is to the parasite politician.

In 1933 Franklin Delano Roosevelt under Executive order 6102  our government confiscated the gold of all United States Citizens; gold was more dangerous than TNT. Gold was  the equivalent to today’s suicide bomber.

The latest from JP Morgan, when he talks people listen. His not so Rosy forecast is a danger sign; the result of Obama’s spendthrift money printing eight years in office. The economy has been sold out to the devil. Printing ad infinitum has caught up with the Politically Correct Zealot Progressive Politician. Click here to read the Morgan warning.

This comes on the heels of Friday’s disappointing May jobs report. According to the Bureau of Labor Statistics, US companies added just 38,000 nonfarm payrolls during the month. Economists were expecting 160,000. Meanwhile, the unemployment rate fell to 4.7% in May from 5.0% in April, but this was largely a function of 458,000 workers dropping out of the labor force.


Governments past and present are nothing more than magicians; they are adept at the three card monte where the taxpayer’s money disappears quicker than a vehicle vacuumed up by a Florida sinkhole. The best way to phrase the politician is a fugitive 180 degrees different from when they first became elected. In the majority of cases the political class summons the news media to put on a spectacle for the very few parasites who continue to mooch off the systems. The public in essence is to busy to protest such a prearranged spectacle. Always notice that the politician do gooder is always surrounded by his or her comrades. This is not because they believe in the policy or action to be taken, but to give support to a weaker member of the cabal.

The scheme of confiscation was initiated by FDR in 1933 when by executive order 6102 the gold window was abruptly shut. All citizens were required under edict to exchange their gold for paper. Think about this happening today. There would be lead flying in the streetsThe main rationale behind the order was actually to remove the constraint on the Federal Reserve which prevented it from increasing the money supply during the depression; the Federal Reserve Act (1913) required 40% gold backing of Federal Reserve Notes issued. By the late 1920s, the Federal Reserve had almost hit the limit of allowable credit (in the form of Federal Reserve demand notes) that could be backed by the gold in its possession (see Great Depression). If gold can’t be legally owned, then it can’t be legally redeemed. If it can’t be legally redeemed, then it can’t constrain the central bank.

Numerous individuals and companies were prosecuted related to President Roosevelt’s Executive Order 6102. The prosecutions took place under subsequent Executive Orders 6111,[8] 6260,[9] 6261[10] and the Gold Reserve Act of 1934.

There was a need to strengthen Executive Order 6102, as the one prosecution under the order was ruled invalid by federal judge John M. Woolsey, on the grounds that the order was signed by the President, not the Secretary of the Treasury as required.[11]

The circumstances of the case were that a New York attorney, Frederick Barber Campbell, had on deposit at Chase National over 5,000 troy ounces (160 kg) of gold. When Campbell attempted to withdraw the gold Chase refused and Campbell sued Chase. A federal prosecutor then indicted Campbell on the following day (September 27, 1933) for failing to surrender his gold.[12] Ultimately, the prosecution of Campbell failed, but the authority of the federal government to seize gold was upheld, and Campbell’s gold was confiscated.

The bottom line here is that the government then became the authority on what amount of money was put into circulation. They, at their will, could print any amount sufficient to keep the scheme rolling. Today we have seen the result of a the printing at all costs paradyne.

For instance, during Obama’s almost seven years in office, debt has risen by $8 trillion. Yet we have an economy in tatters; don’t believe the official dogma of 5.1 % unemployment, counting those who have given up, the unemployment rate is close to 14%. Keep in mind that during the depression not one single human being gave up looking for work. But it is a different matter today because of social programs and the what not provide a safety net. Putting that aside, those who have given up look is not because of the safety net, but because there are no jobs available.

If the government paper hangers feel that gold was the enemy in the past and paper (fiat) currency is the panacea, then why not print trillions of dollars and hand out a ten million to every citizen. By the way that has been tried in Germany during the reign of Weimar

The confiscating of gold produced a monopoly in all countries that did not back their currency with gold or silver. Effectively we have turned over out lives to the Federal Reserve money mongers without our permission.  Through printing the government has devalued an individuals assets over time. Soon the day of reckoning will be upon us. Very soon!
