What We Showed the Government

TRADING WITH THE ENEMY ACT of 1917 Still in Force

In 1917 the Trading With The Enemy Act was passed. This legislation is still in place. It’s article 5(b) states:

* That the President may investigate, regulate or prohibit, under such rules and regulations as he may prescribe, by means of licenses or otherwise, any transactions in foreign exchange for the export, hoarding, melting, or earmarking of gold or silver coins or bullion or currency.

* With this awesome power, the President of the United States may do what he pleases with our money or with gold if he deems our monetary system to be in jeopardy.

* Section 5(b) was used by Roosevelt in 1933 to confiscate gold.


When the great S.O.B., FDR stole the gold from the American people in 1933,

it told the government one very important thing. That their subjects would accept anything.

Citizens no more!
