GOLD: Gold enabling secession?

Writing’s On The Wall: Texas Pulls $1 Billion In Gold From NY Fed, Makes It “Non-Confiscatable”

*** begin quote ***

The lack of faith in central bank trustworthiness is spreading. First Germany, then Holland, and Austria, and now – as we noted was possible previously – Texas has enacted a Bill to repatriate $1 billion of gold from The NY Fed’s vaults to a newly established state gold bullion depository…”People have this image of Texas as big and powerful … so for a lot of people, this is exactly where they would want to go with their gold,” and the Bill includes a section to prevent forced seizure from the Federal Government.

This is interesting to me.

I obviously follow the “secession movement”. There are active groups in many states and parts of states. 

I still think North Dakota is the most prepared because of the State Bank of North Dakota. They can “clear” checks and have the infrastructure in place to be a “central bank” for the State.

This “repatriation” of gold moves Teas into second place.

Many State could go on their own when the American Empire fractures. Just like everyone before them. The USSR being the latest.

Like the Soviet Union, the American Empire is going to go broke from corporate / personal welfare and too many foreign wars. It’s inevitable on their current track.

So what does an individual do?

After all opinions are like anal sphincters, everyone has one. It has be “actionable”.

  • Prepare for a “crash” by being a prepper (i.e., bullets, beans, band aids, bullion).
  • Get in shape. Use the poor man’s gym by just walking. (It’s sad that so many arm chair preppers are coach potatoes.)
  • Practice skills that you’ll need in the future (i.e., make fire; improvise solutions; eat basics).
  • Grow a garden. Real preppers create wild no-till forest gardens.

What are you doing? 

It’s going to be a rough time and many of “We, The Sheeple” aka “Clovers” aka “Mundanes” are not going to make it.

  1. “Earth Abides” ends sadly with the “light” of “intelligence” flickering out.

    Loved it. Loved Heinlein’s stuff — especially starship troopers — more.


  2. “Practice skills that you’ll need in the future (i.e., make fire; improvise solutions; eat basics).”

    One of the better written and more philosophical “End Of The World” novels is “Earth Abides” by George R. Stewart (1949). I’ll have to re-read it someday, but the one outstanding note from it that stuck in my mind was how something as basic as passing on the knowledge of a “bow and arrow” could be so important in a dislocated world. If you think about it, the bow/arrow thing was a real “technological leap” for hunter era humanity: how did someone actually come up with such a crazy idea?

    I read the book almost fifty years ago (As noted, I think it’s due for a second shot! LOL!) so I had a hard time pulling the title out of my brain. Here are a couple of lists that fans of that genre might enjoy:

    Of course the news that Putin is bragging about their 40 brand new State Of The Art nuclear ICBMs may have put me into this mind-set as well. I think a good bit of our current willingness to put all faith into all-powerful government stems from the annihilation fears of our youth.
