It’s endorsed by the late economist, Milton Friedman.

Another solution is to buy back the fed. The last provision of the Federal Reserve Act of 1913, Sec. 30, states, “The right to amend, alter or repeal this Act is expressly reserved.”  We must demand Congress abolish the fed or buy back the stock and make it part of the Treasury Department.  The Treasury Department must also be nationalized because it is currently part of the private fed as a result of the repeal in 1920 of the Independent Treasury Act of 1846.

The National Intel Report with John Stadtmiller, December 15, 2021 Hour 2



A solution that worked for me in court in 1996, causing Judge Rushing here in Pinellas County (case CTC96270955SANC) to rule that my obligations to pay $350 in traffic tickets was discharged, despite that I plea bargained (agreed) to pay them.  At hearings to show cause why I should not be held in contempt of court for not paying said tickets, I successfully argued that the Clerk of Court had discharged my obligations.  That State Attorney did not put up a fight other than to once assert that the UCC doesn’t apply.  I contested this argument by simply asking why the UCC would not apply to this commercial transaction, but did not receive a rebuttal.  I tendered (offered in person) lawful money (Silver Eagles) to the Clerk of Court who refused them, saying they had to be rolled. I used only two laws: 12 USC 152 and Florida Statute 673.6031 (also embodied in federal law as UCC 3-603).
“The terms `lawful money’ and `lawful money of the United States’ shall be construed to mean gold and silver coin of the United States.” 12 USC 152 (U.S. Code, Title 12, Section 152)
The following statute applies to tendering lawful money that is refused:

Florida Statute 673.6031 (UCC 3-603) Tender of payment.–

(1) If tender of payment of an obligation to pay an instrument is made to a person entitled to enforce the instrument, the effect of tender is governed by principles of law applicable to tender of payment under a simple contract.
(2) If tender of payment of an obligation to pay an instrument is made to a person entitled to enforce the instrument and the tender is refused, there is discharge, to the extent of the amount of the tender, of the obligation of an indorser or accommodation party having a right of recourse with respect to the obligation to which the tender relates.
(3) If tender of payment of an amount due on an instrument is made to a person entitled to enforce the instrument, the obligation of the obligor to pay interest after the due date on the amount tendered is discharged. If presentment is required with respect to an instrument and the obligor is able and ready to pay on the due date at every place of payment stated in the instrument, the obligor is deemed to have made tender of payment on the due date to the person entitled to enforce the instrument.
History.–s. 2, ch. 92-82.
The following statute applies to a creditor surrendering an instrument, such as a promissory note, that you have tendered for payment.

Florida Statute 673.6041 (UCC 3-604) Discharge by cancellation or renunciation.–

(a) A person entitled to enforce an instrument, with or without consideration, may discharge the obligation of a party to pay the instrument (i) by an intentional voluntary act, such as surrender of the instrument to the party, destruction, mutilation, or cancellation of the instrument, cancellation or striking out of the party’s signature, or the addition of words to the instrument indicating discharge, or (ii) by agreeing not to sue or otherwise renouncing rights against the party by a signed writing.
(b) Cancellation or striking out of an indorsement pursuant to subsection (a) does not affect the status and rights of a party derived from the indorsement. (5A Del. C. 1953, § 3-605; 55 Del. Laws, c. 349; 70 Del. Laws, c. 86, § 3.)
In either case, a creditor surrendering a debt-bearing instrument discharges the obligations just the same as a creditor refusing the tender of lawful money. After the Clerk of Court returned my promissory notes and after they refused my tender of Silver Eagles, I sent the Clerk a Notice of Discharge as a formality.  I pointed out to the judge that, per F.S. 673.6031(3) the Clerk was able to present the instrument (promissory notes) for payment at my place of residence, but neglected to exercise that right.  It’s clear each of us may act as a bank in most respects when one reads the Uniform Commercial Code, which is embodied in all state statutes, so it truly is uniform.  But the only argument the judge accepted was that the refusal of my tender of Silver Eagles constitutes a discharge from my obligations.
The notices of discharge let the Clerk know they discharged my obligations. I referred to the above statutes, using their language, to state that the Clerk discharged my obligations as a result of their “intentional, voluntary act” of “surrender” of the instruments (my promissory notes, included under the definition of “instrument” in the UCC), as they claimed they would accept payment only by cash or check, and then because of their refusing my tender of Silver Eagles, requiring them to be rolled.  Of course, I would have been insane to actually give them lawful money, but my act of tendering the promissory notes and the Silver Eagles to which the Clerk reacted with intentional, voluntary acts of refusing tender is all that was required to discharge my obligations.  The clerk actually discharged my obligations twice, but I didn’t try to make that argument which would have had to be made on appeal.  I didn’t even ask for attorney’s fees.  At all hearings I was prepared to tender Federal Reserve Notes should the judge rule against me and try to put me in jail.  Despite the judge ruling against my initial argument involving the promissory notes, he gave me more time to pay the traffic tickets.  At the final hearing the State Attorney had, without informing me, subpoenaed a slew of government workers: the state and county attorneys as well the state and county clerks of court.  They all attested that they would now be able to accept lawful money and deposit it into their bank accounts, and inform all Clerk of Court offices to accept lawful money, but they lied.  Soon afterward my brother tried to pay with lawful money which they refused.  It was just a deceitful show put on for my sake.  At the final hearing Judge Rushing said, “I’m going to rule in your favor,” and, “I’m going to rule that your obligation is, uh um [stalling incessantly]…” which enticed me to say “discharged.”  He then spoke in a complete sentence, “I’m going to rule your obligations are discharged,” to which I replied, “thank you.”  Perhaps this was his way of signaling that I should move the court to rule in my favor.  At this final hearing the only three words I uttered were, “discharged,” and “thank you.”  In the process of the “state” trying to ignore the Constitution, not to mention the UCC, to try to draw blood from me, I wonder how much it cost the corporate municipality known as, “COUNTY OF PINELLAS,” throughout the six hearings to arrive at their ruling in my favor.
If we, all across America, tried to pay our fines, code violations, traffic/parking tickets, fees, taxes, and more using the same arguments, it would be like throwing monkey wrenches into a genocidal machine.
I’ve been calling up talk shows to explain this argument. The last time I called Alex Jones to tell the story about three months ago, which is the second time I’ve told the story on his show, he said that seven people on Las Vegas beat the IRS with this argument.
From the book, Constitution: Fact or Fiction by Dr. Eugene Schroeder and Micki Nellis (ISBN 1-885534-10-8), it’s obvious we must demand the current president can and must repeal the state of national emergency under which this country has been since declared by FDR in his 1933 banking emergency and been renewed every year under various pretexts by every president since.  An example of Congress flailing helplessly is Senate Report 93-549, issued 1973, which states, “Since March 9, 1933, the United States has been in a state of declared national emergency.” and “These hundreds of statutes delegate to the President extraordinary powers, ordinarily exercised by the Congress, which affect the lives of American citizens in a host of all-encompassing manners. This vast range of powers, taken together, confer enough authority to rule the country without reference to normal Constitutional processes.”
House Joint Resolution 192, June 5, 1933, explains how, because the gold standard has been suspended, it is no longer possible to pay debt [with substantial, lawful money], but only to discharge obligations [with Federal Reserve Notes].
The United States (federal government) has been incorporated since 1871, then city, county, and state governments followed:
CHAPTER 62, 1871 / 16 United States Statutes at Large 419 / FORTY FIRST CONGRESS SESSION III. / CHAPTER 62, 1871 CHAP. LXII. — An act to provide a Government for the District of Columbia.
“Be it enacted by the Senate and House of Representatives of the United States in Congress assembled, That all that part of the territory of the United States included within the limits of the District of Columbia be, and the same is hereby, created into a government by the name of the District of Columbia, by which name it is hereby constituted a body corporate for municipal purposes, and may contract and be contracted with, sue and be sued, plead and be impleaded, have a seal, and exercise all other powers of a municipal corporation not inconsistent with the Constitution and laws of the United States and the provisions of this act.” (emphasis added)
Many misconstrue, but successfully argue, that Santa Clara County v. Southern Pacific Railroad, 118 U.S. 394 (1886), grants corporations the same status as an emancipated slave under the 14th Amendment.  This misconstruction is a result of a highly publicized comment made by Chief Justice Morrison R. Waite before oral arguments occurred, “The court does not wish to hear argument on the question whether the provision in the Fourteenth Amendment to the Constitution, which forbids a State to deny to any person within its jurisdiction the equal protection of the laws, applies to these corporations. We are all of the opinion that it does.”
Since 1871 the federal de jure government has been dormant because it is suspended and the de facto corporate government has replaced it. Because the various corporate municipalities rely on contracts (licenses) for their jurisdiction, it is impossible for them to be of, by, or for the People. From Black’s Law Dictionary, Third Edition, the definition of “license” is, “The permission by competent authority to do an act which without such permission, would be illegal.” This implies the government licensees, which includes most of us, are not competent. We, the People, have always proven competent living at liberty.
