Bernard Von Nothaus was recently convicted of counterfeiting. The thing is – he was making gold and silver coins and medallions that do not resemble Federal Reserve Coins – and if they did – they would be worth MORE because they aren’t mixed with copper and nickel – they are pure silver and gold. Something is bad wrong with this country when a jury convicts a man of a crime like this.
Where do these Federal juries come from? Is it the same pool of people such that judges and prosecutors know who to choose to get their desired convictions? Look here and here for information on the conviction rates of federal juries.
Incidentally – some of the millions in assets that the federal government don’t even belong to Von Nothaus – he was storing that money for his customers as part of a service he provided. So – the government is stealing gold and silver from Americans, while they create more and more money. And we just let them steal from us?
