Support of H.R.8421

 "A Patriot’s Plea To Be Free From A Fiat Economy"

In Support of H.R.8421 - To abolish the Board of Governors of the Federal Reserve System and the Federal reserve banks, to repeal the Federal Reserve Act, and for other purposes.

by: Ian Hamilton Trottier of Montana

As a 13th generation North American I understand well the evolution to create a revolutionary prosperity in a breakaway from the old world. Yet despite a 1776 Declaration of Independence, a global economic system has been secretly attacking American liberty. In 2024, we face fatal threats from a Federal Reserve initiated digital economic system implementing the forthcoming onset of the CBDC (Central Bank Digital Currency) monopoly and its social credit system.

An example of paternalistic serfdom surfaces through the guise of "safety against cash" by the Biden Administration's Executive Order 14067 (signed March 9, 2022). This is not only un-Constitutional and therefore an illegal movement against the American people, but it further enslaves them and their country to this debt-based system that they have all been subjected to since the creation of the Federal Reserve in  1913.  

Therefore, part of the importance of passing H.R. 8421 is the importance of returning the US economic system to a back bone of something with intrinsic value. A Fiat economy based on zero intrinsic value is deception. A cashless, fully digital economy based on zero intrinsic value is servitude, bondage and complete dependence... not INDEPENDENCE.   Globalists such as John Kerry have been vocal about Joe Biden’s willingness and intent on allowing the US to fold into the digital economic “Great Reset”.

What does next-generation digitized “cash” mean to a currency that has not run on the GoldStandard since 1971 under Nixon?  Does the United States dollar need to return to a gold standard as a digital currency; or can there be other intrinsic value? If it is not freely convertible to “hard money” like gold or silver, then it is simply considered fiat money, which can never be dependable for true intrinsic exchange. It means ultimately that some government bureaucrat can sign a piece of paper and create more receipts (dollars = debt); which is the current case. If a digital currency is not backed by anything of intrinsic value — it is worthless.  How much more ephemeral can the US become about the accountable value of money in representing real work, value and prosperity?

Even the DC-based IMF, with its mandate to promote international monetary cooperation, balanced growth of international trade, all within a stable system of exchange rates claims to have over 90.5M ounces of gold; where does that leave the US Federal Reserve?  Does the US Fed, in fact, have gold reserves?  What about the US Treasury?  Ron Paul has asked for audits, as has the H.R.8421 Bill Sponsor, Representative Thomas Massie.  Now WE THE PEOPLE should all be demanding audits!  If there is no intrinsic value to the American dollar, what does that mean to the coming “Global Digital Reset” and its Central Bank?

Much ill-doing can be done behind the cloak, curtain and veil of the privacy of the Federal Reserve Central Bank. Again, the US Federal Reserve Bank is not part of the US government.  It is private and does not represent The People as its name suggests. If the US Federal Reserve does not represent The People then does it simply feed the global Central banking structure based in Switzerland; not representing or upholding the values of America and her Constitution?

Consider: All global Central Banks feed into the Bank of International Settlements (1930) in Basel, Switzerland created to foster international monetary and financial cooperation while serving as a bank for central banks. That includes the US Federal Reserve (1913), the Central Bank of Russia (1860), the Bank of England (1694) and People’s Bank of China (1945). Why is the US Central Bank, Federal Reserve, regulated by a foreign bank?

The following is a well documented statement Woodrow Wilson made as he lamented the passing of the 1913 Federal Reserve Act:

“I am a most unhappy man. I have unwittingly ruined my country. A great industrial nation is controlled by its system of credit... all our activities are in the hands of a few men. We have come to be one of the worst ruled, one of the most completely controlled and dominated Governments in the civilized world, no longer a Government by free opinion, no longer a Government by conviction and the vote of the majority, but a Government by the opinion and duress of a small group of dominant men.” — Woodrow Wilson, 1924

Here would be my question to Alexander Hamilton, a man in which I share historic Hamilton bloodline: Is the Central banking system reflective of American values?  We do know this: it is not American by design; and it is a European mechanism of debt.

An unsettled American public, with all the advantages of the internet, resting on the backbone of digitization must ask: What are the parallels to digital social media and digital currency?  How does the US government keep the internet “free”?  How does it keep a digitized currency “free”?   Again, what are the threats to this Republic’s democratic values as our way of life transitions into the Cloud?  Where is the intrinsic value in a gold-less economy and why have our forefathers, along with other wise leaders warned us decade after decade about a credit based system’s dangers to freedom?  The digitization of information began arguably in 1837 with Samuel SB Morse and Alfred Vail; but could anyone have predicted it would become a lawful exchange of American value; likely run by third-party vendors?

The US is a Federation under a Constitutional Republic. It is not a Democracy.  Which means, ultimately, its economics should be left up to each individual State Governor to decide whether they want their jurisdiction to fold into the “global economic reset” or not. The Central Banking problems in the USA needs immediate attention; and is starting to get it from outside the Federal process.

Governor Abbott of Texas has recently motioned for a secession from the Union. This is not new as such dialogue has been ongoing for years now in States like California and Oregon. There is a reason for this: corruption.  In Texas, a group self-declaring independent governance, is already printing their own silver coins: The key is silver. 

As Congress contemplates Abolishing the Federal Reserve it must ask and answer these questions for the American public and answer in the Citizen's best self-interest:

1. Why is the Federal Reserve PRIVATE?

2. Why does its authority apparently breach that of the bounds of the Constitution (Article 1 Section 8)? “The Congress shall have power to lay and collect taxes, duties, imposts and excises, to pay the debts and provide for the common defense and general welfare of the United States; but all duties, imposts and excises shall be uniform throughout the United States;”...Clause 5: “To coin money, regulate the value thereof, and of foreign coin, and fix the standard of weights and measures;”

3. Why is the Federal Reserve NOT audited?

4. Why is there NO GOLD backing US currency (Nixon shock, 1971)?

5. Why do the US Treasury and the Federal Reserve claim NOT to have any gold — yet the IMF does?

6. If the USA does in fact have gold or silver, where is it? Ft. Knox? Why is Fort Knox NOT audited?

7. The Roman Empire eventually fell as the Denarius was devalued. Is the same happening in the US today? Does that matter? Should its currency return to a Gold Standard?

8. Why doesn’t the Federal Government pay off its $34T DEBT? Who is it in debt to? If it is in debt, doesn't that simply imply, we are all in debt also?

9. Will a coming “Global Reset” have intrinsic value to support the US dollar or will it be a fiat mirage of what is not there? And will it enable the crushing of real, daily liberty?

“America has become completely bankrupt in world leadership, financial credit and its reputation for courage, vision and human rights. This is an undeclared economic war, bankruptcy, and economic slavery of the most corrupt order! Wake up America — take back your country.” —  Rep. James Traficant, Jr (OH). 1993

Can we allow our fellow citizen’s economic voice to become so devalued that they drown in a fiat reality?  Do we allow this private, seemingly tyrannic, European banking system to dominate unaudited, unchallenged. Do we accept the same yesterday; the same before; the same tomorrow? Prepare for the worst as we live the same today. No, we live the best; as is this Nation’s dream for all.

It is the US Constitution and Bill of Rights that have built this great beacon of hope for the world to glow in. We cannot fail this great calling to pass the House Bill to Abolish the Federal Reserve, thereby granting the Patriot’s Plea to no longer live in a Fiat Economy.

I support H.R. 8421.  I call for an immediate abolishment of the Federal Reserve.
