Welcome Liberty Dollar Supporters!

1. Economic Collapse to Trigger Social Pandemonium
This article by Alan Peter should really catch your attention.  It opens with: 

As the shocking confidential information contained in this briefing shows, the threat of social meltdown and chaos is so large, a domestic law-enforcement arm of the U.S. military (referred to by The Army Times as the "Consequence Management Response Force") has been created to deal with what U.S. officials believe to be a coming, unprecedented wave of massive social chaos.

Ten Key Points of the article include:

 U.S. Preparing a Military Response to Coming Social Chaos
 Yes, U.S. Officials Are Quietly Preparing for BIG Trouble Ahead
 Dire Unemployment Picture Foreshadows Social Chaos
 Systemic Collapse is a Real Possibility: Other Shoes Are Getting Ready to Drop
 More Evidence the You-Know-What is Going to Hit the Fan
 When the Police Abandon Law-Abiding Neighborhoods to Mobs
 Jim Rogers now openly says the U.S. is heading for an inflationary holocaust
 The Washington Elite Are Quietly Making Themselves More Self-Reliant
 Vice President Dick Cheney’s Chilling Predictions
 Two Categories of People: The Prepared vs. the Clueless

Meanwhile the Debt Clock counts down to a monetary/social/political doomsday at:

2. Private Currencies: What if the US Dollar Went Away?
On September 4th, 2009, American Banking News - of all people - posed the question: "What if the US Dollar Went Away?"  Do you think they know something?  I encourage you to read this thought-provoking article that includes:

If the United States Dollar went away, consumers almost immediately develop some form of alternative currency or accept the currency of some foreign nation. It's possible that the British Pound or the Euro might gain a foothold in the United States, but it's also possible that the people would develop their own currency, and in fact, some already have.

A company, called Liberty Services, established a private currency called the Liberty Dollar, which was a private currency backed by silver in the United States. The operation continued successfully for years until the Federal Government shut it down. In 2006, the Justice department issued a press release stating that they had determined that using Liberty Dollars as circulating money is a crime. In November of 2007, the Federal Bureau of Investigation raided the Liberty Dollar offices and seized most of their company's assets, including the silver that backed the value of the Liberty Dollar.

3.  Liberty Dollar to return... to the $50 Silver Base?
Well as I wrote last month... the end of the Summer Slows / Summer Lows are now behind us.  Have you noticed the current precious metal prices?  Silver is in the $16 to $17 range.  And while gold is bouncing around $1000, look at the 30 day moving averages (30DMA) for Gold is $986.54 and Silver is $16.00!

This link has recently changed:

What does that all mean?  Well with spot silver over $16 for the past 30 days and the current 30DMA at $16.00... it is only a matter of time before the Liberty Dollar model, now happily copied by so many evolving currencies, will return to the $50 Silver Base.  In fact, since the Liberty Dollar is just returning to its previous base, there is only a 30 day waiting period before it actually Moves Up. YEA!!

A quick look back to metal rates for 2009 is very reassuring too.  In a recent issue of the USA TODAY, it noted that there has been significant price appreciation:  Gold at $997.90 increased 12.9% in 2009.  And silver at $16.49 increased 46.3%!!!!  Can you see why I am such a big fan of silver?  Do you want to protect your money or do you want to make a lot of money?  Whichever it is... please consider silver!

4. Making Up Crime - An important article
One of the advantages of the government war against the Liberty Dollar and the federal persecution of the Liberty Dollar Four is that many notable people took a stand in defense of the Liberty Dollar.  Even Lew Rockwell, my nemesis at the von Mises Institute, responded with a nice article and named the co-defendants as the Liberty Dollar Four.  Now, I am very pleased that Peter Ferrara has taken a stand for Liberty Dollar and published "Making Up Crime" that was recently published at  Peter is the General Counsel for the American Civil Rights Union and the Director of Entitlement and Budget Policy at the Institute for Policy Innovation. 

Peter's article points out that:  The indictment states, without citation to authority, "it is a violation of law for private coin systems to compete with the official coinage of the United States." No it is not. If the Congress wants to prohibit private circulation and trade in gold and silver coins, it can. But it hasn't. To the contrary, it has expressly provided by law that the American people enjoy the freedom to own and trade in gold and silver.

And concludes with:  When Fed Ex got started, the Feds charged it with violating the legal monopoly of the post office. When Fed Ex won that battle, it was a landmark victory for all Americans. The case against Liberty Dollar offers another potential landmark victory for American liberty.

Right on Peter!  Please click HERE for this important article. 

5. Legal Update... Motion Filed for TEA Party Dollar Orders
My attorney, Deke Falls, has filed a Motion with Judge Richard L. Voorhees, our Trial Judge, for clarification of the Oral Order issued by Magistrate Judge David S. Cayer on July 6, 2009, that said:  Defendants shall not circulate or aid in the circulation of any coins or currency in relation to the Liberty Dollar Operation.  We are currently awaiting Judge Voorhees's ruling on our Motion.  We hope to be able to fill the TEA Party Dollar orders based on the First Amendment Right of free political expression, as TEA is an acronym for Taxed Enough Already.  We will post an Alert as soon as Judge Voorhees rules on our Motion.  Thanks for your support, order and patience.  Click HERE to read the Motion.

6. North Carolina Connection? 
Good News / Bad News:  The good news is that Kevin can get out.  The bad news is that he cannot get out until he has a place to live.  So if you live around Asheville or Charlotte, please email me ASAP.  With 1.8 MILLION docs received from Discovery, this trial is going to take some time.  It is terrible that Kevin would linger for months before the trial even begins.  I hope to hear from somebody who can help Kevin, please.  I can attest that Kevin will provide for himself, pay rent and is a very positive minded person. 

Meanwhile, I am also looking for a quiet place that is less expensive than a hotel in the Charlotte area.  As this ground breaking federal trial shapes up.. it is obvious that I will need to spend several days on several occasions in the Charlotte area to prepare for the trial.  Then there will be the trial.  Of course all this is expensive.  If you have place where I can stay that includes a quiet work place, please contact me via email: Editor@LibertyDollar.orgThank you for your kind support. 

7. Liberty Dollar 11th Anniversary!
WOW!!!  In face of all the pressure of the ongoing battle over our right to use gold and silver between consulting adults... as if there should be any question... We gotta take a moment and say thanks for the 11th Anniversary of the Liberty Dollar!!!  WOW!  It's been quite a trip over the past twelve years.  Lots of bumps, curves and successes.  Just consider that for the first time in human history, the people themselves have created their own free market monetary system to protect themselves from depreciating government money and do so as their right to political expression!  This is ground breaking and one reason Peter Ferrara refers to our case as ground breaking. 

In light of all your losses from the raid, seizure and the forced closure to issue any additional Liberty Dollars, our organization has hung together. Thank you!  And I expect we will continue to hang together and win together!  I certainly hope a good number of you plan to be on hand at the trial and especially when we are acquitted!  A good show of support in the courtroom is important and the party afterwards will raise the ceiling! 

Happy birthday Liberty Dollar!!  And more importantly, thank you for all your support.  We wouldn't have a currency if you had not taken a stand and been involved with the Liberty Dollar currency model.  Charge!

8. 50th Anniversary of the 50th State by the $50 Hawaii Dala
I am pleased to inform you that we have the legal blessing to issue the $50 Hawaii Dala as a commemorative for the 50th Anniversary of the 50th State of Hawaii.  This blessing comes with the disclaimer:  Please note that the 2009 Hawaii Dala is not intended to be used as United States currency and any representation as such is strictly prohibited by law.  And the stern understanding that:  The Hawaii Dala is not intended to compete with the god awful US dollar. 

Every 2009 Hawaii Dala also features a hand stamped Hallmark on the reverse that attests that the Hawaii Dala is "NOT GOV $$$," as if anybody could confuse a silver $50 Hawaiian design with the clad $1 Eisenhower Dollar!  Regardless, this will be one of the most unusual Hawaiian issues in my 35 years. 

Unfortunately, the distributor for the HD has a problem with his merchant account that accepts credit/debit cards so the shopping cart is not operational.  As soon as that problem is resolved I will post to the Hawaii Dala list that you can place an order.  If you are interested in this unique issue, please sign up at

9. Bernard's 35th Anniversary
Can you believe this?!  One of these days I am going to be old.  It doesn't seem like it's been 35 years since I had my catharsis that changed my life!  I can still remember the day I wrote my first (and only) economic research paper, "To Know Value" on September 11, 1974.  May how times have changed.  And so has our money.  And that is why after 25 years as the Mintmaster at the Royal Hawaiian Mint that I "retired" to devote my time and money to providing a solution to our great country's terrible money.  Twelve years ago it all seemed so simple to issue a value based currency that people could use to protect themselves from the depreciating government money.  We felt the cloak of the First Amendment and the voluntary nature of the currency would protect us.  And we still feel that way.  But obviously, with our success, somebody didn't like the Liberty Dollar as it grew to almost $50 MILLION in circulation.  Meanwhile, if you are interested in a complete history of the Mint, its 700+ numismatic issues and our true rags to riches story from living without electricity on $30 a month to living on Diamond Head and driving a Rolls in the annual King Kamehameha parade with our sons throwing paper coins to the screaming crowd, please stay tuned as our book, Waifs in Gold Boots - The First 35 Years of the Royal Hawaiian Mint, is scheduled to be published in 2012. 

Closing Remarks:
There is not much more to say.  It has been a terrific 12 years with the Liberty Dollar.  And although I don't like the prospects of going to prison for 20 or 30 years, I could not live with myself, if I had not tried to solve our country's monetary problems.  As you may know, here is a lot of bullshit out there... and a lot of good people, like Lew Rockwell, etc., who mean well and talk a good story... but what have they actually accomplished?  Damn little IMHO.  My view is that if you are looking for a solution to protect your money AND return our great country to the values it was founded on... you must take action in the monetary system.  We the People of America have a civic duty to do what we can... and that is why I launched the Liberty Dollar twelve years ago on October 1, 1998.  

Many thanks for your continued support.  For it is only by banding together and adopting a free and independent currency that provides us with "just weights and measures" will we be able to throw off the yoke of a manipulated monetary/tax system and generate a peaceful and prosperous society.

Thank you again for all your efforts to return America to value - one Liberty Dollar at a time!
