In a move to bypass the unconstitutional fiat system of the privately-owned Federal Reserve, the State of Texas is establishing a gold-backed bank. Legislation signed into law by Texas Governor Greg Abbott establishes the Texas Bullion Depository, which will allow anyone who wants to deposit and trade in precious metals the opportunity to do so, thus allowing them to retain the value of their money.
On June 12, 2015, Governor Abbott said, "Today I signed HB 483 to provide a secure facility for the State of Texas, state agencies and Texas citizens to store gold bullion and other precious metals. With the passage of this bill, the Texas Bullion Depository will become the first state-level facility of its kind in the nation, increasing the security and stability of our gold reserves and keeping taxpayer funds from leaving Texas to pay for fees to store gold in facilities outside our state."
Rep. Giovanni Capriglione, author and sponsor of HB 483 said, "The really interesting part about this depository, which hasn't been getting a lot of press," is that "with this depository, private individuals and entities will be able to purchase goods, and will be able to use assets in the vault the same way you'd be able to use cash."
"This is different than your traditional bank - a traditional bank lends money. Especially if you're in Greece right now, you know that if you go to the bank, and everybody went to the bank to try to get their deposits out, there's not enough paper money to cover it. That causes a whole bunch of concerns. What this depository does is, it doesn't allow that - if there are 5,000 bars of gold in there, there will be 5,000 gold bars there, and you'll be able to access your deposits directly upon demand," Capriglione said.
"We set up a system of depository agents so you can have any corporation, any group, basically start a depository agent, and they can send and receive through this depository system, outside of the Federal Reserve System."
Confiscation Is Coming: Obama To Issue Executive Order Targeting 4.2 Million Retirees With Massive Gun Ban - The Daily Coin
If the President’s efforts are successful then it’s not difficult to see where mental health assessments go next. With Obamacare’s preventative care mandates it should be clear that the next phase in the disarmament of America will target adults between the ages of 18 and 62.
In fact, it’s already happening. California, the petri dish for a wide variety of socialist viruses, has already implemented statutes that allow the police to enter a person’s home and confiscate their weapons based on accusations of mental illness alone. Keep in mind that they have given themselves the legal authority to do this before any tests on the gunowner have been performed. They seize your gun first, then you have to prove your innocence.
And while you can dismiss this as California being typical California, anyone who thinks their state will be any different is kidding themselves. They’ll simply pass this on the Federal level, just like Obamacare and scores of other legislative actions, and it will be enforced directly by the Executive Branch.
Moreover, it is also important to note that the government has recently released new guidelines on mental illness and it turns out that if you are even reading this web site you have a diagnoseable condition:
The missile, known as Sermat, will reportedly have an operational range of 10,000 kilometers (6,200 miles) and be able to travel at 24,500 kilometers per hour (15,220 mph). The missile, which can reportedly also deliver up to 15 separate warheads to independent targets, will likely be stationed in the East or West of the country to maximize its delivery range.
North Korea has erected a new, taller launch tower at its missile base, possibly in preparation for firing a long-range rocket to mark an important national anniversary in October, South Korea's Yonhap news agency reported on Wednesday.
The 67-metre (220-ft) tower will be able to accommodate the launch of a longer-range missile than the rocket test-fired in December 2012. That launch was widely considered successful in putting an object into space orbit, the Yonhap report said.
North Korea is banned under U.N. Security Council resolutions from conducting tests that use ballistic missile technology but has defied international warnings and sanctions to pursue missile and nuclear programs.
"Our assessment is that the North will use the newly upgraded Tongchang-ri (missile) launch pad to launch a long-range missile larger than Unha-3," Yonhap quoted a South Korean government source as saying.
Unha-3 refers to the long-range rocket fired in 2012 from the base near its west coast.
The launch is likely to come around the 70th anniversary of the founding of the North's ruling Workers' Party on Oct. 10, the source was quoted as saying.
South Korea's Defense Ministry could not immediately confirm the report but an official said they were seeking to verify it.
Abby Johnson, Planned Parenthood defector: Loophole allows profits from fetal organ sales - Washington Times
Like Dr. Deborah Nucatola, Planned Parenthood senior director of medical services, Ms. Johnson said she and her colleagues would talk about their work, even indulge in “gallows humor” as they wound down after hours over margaritas and chips.
The video, released Tuesday by the pro-life Center for Medical Progress, shows Dr. Nucatola discussing how much fetal organs are worth, raising alarm over whether the organization is profiting from the sale of donated fetal tissue in violation of federal law.
House and Senate Republicans have called for a congressional investigation, while governors or attorneys general in at least three states — Georgia, Indiana and Ohio — launched probes into state abortion clinics to determine if fetal organs and tissue are being sold for profit.
“They [clinics] could say, ‘Well, it’s more difficult for me to harvest a brain than it is for me to harvest a kidney, so that collection fee is going to be $1,000 for a brain, whereas it’s only going to be $400 for a kidney,’” Ms. Johnson said. “And the problem is that it’s so subjective, the amount of money that can be charged. That’s really where we need reform.”
