1. Economic Collapse to Trigger
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

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

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
This link has recently changed: http://www.scotiamocatta.com/scpt/scotiamocatta/prec/pm_daily.pdf
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
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 Townhall.com. 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

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.org.
Thank 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
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.
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 www.HawaiiDala.com.
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.
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
Thank you again for all your efforts to return America
to value - one Liberty Dollar at a time!
