Liberty Dollar Down, Part 2
More notes on the convictions that too few in the freedom movement want to discuss
by Bernard von Nothaus, et al

Editor's Note

The conviction of the Liberty Dollar Four has been remarkable for the LACK of much chatter in the freedom movement forums. Not that I'm a Facebook junkie spending countless hours browsing my Home page looking for comments from my 100 or so Friends—many Free Staters, almost all linked to one freedom cause or another.

This scarcity of apparent outrage or agitation among us libertarians still at large truly disturbs me. More than anything, I'm infuriated that Congressman Ron Paul, who was asked to testify for the defense—namely to the effect that Americans have the absolute right to choose what they will use in exchange for goods and services, and Americans like Bernard have the absolute right to manufacture a means of exchange—declined to do so. Hence, a weak-willed, weak-minded jury, under sway of a likely prosecution plant, voted in record time to convict innocent men and women, probably the men to years in jail. Chalk up another political prisoner. I know not what course others may take, but as for me, Dr. Where will never get my support again... for dogcatcher.

A lot of freedom movement leaders—no need to name names—faced a gut check on the Liberty Dollar Four and came up short. Who's going to stand up for you when they come to take you away? Ron Paul? Lew Rockwell? Bob Barr?

If ye love [cowering before the federales and public perception] more than liberty, the tranquility of servitude greater than the animating contest for freedom, go home from us in peace. We seek not your counsel, nor your arms. Crouch down and lick the hand that feeds you. May your chains set lightly upon you; and may posterity forget that ye were our countrymen. – Samuel Adams

URGENT ACTION: Bad News for your Property!

Dear Liberty Dollar Supporters:

Thank you, thank you, thank you for the 100s of replies. The two most common words re my conviction were "sorry" and "sad." I wholeheartedly agree and am sorry I can't reply to every email. URGENT we have no time to lose to protect your property from gov theft!

Please do NOT let the government steal your property!!!

I have just learned that the government will aggressively defend against any claims once the judge decides on April 4th whether or not the property in whole or in part is subject to forfeiture. This means that the government may steal your property i.e. the silver that backs the paper or digital Liberty Dollar Warehouse Receipts 'without just compensation' i.e. fair market value! Please stand up for your Fifth Amendment!


Unless you are identified as an "interested party" on the official record prior to the April 4th Forfeiture Hearing on Monday morning, you may not have standing with the court to redeem your Liberty Dollar warehouse receipts or the gov process may be so encumbered that the government prevails and steals your property.

You do not have to identify the total value of your paper or digital Warehouse Receipts that you are holding to qualify as an "Interested Party." So, even if you are holding just one $1 Liberty Dollar silver certificate, you are qualified as an "Interested Party" and encouraged to register - IMMEDIATELY.

Registering is easy, fast and free: Simply email the statement below to Assistant US Attorney Thomas R. Ascik <>, the government attorney who is trying to steal your property. And send a CC to me <> and I will send all the emails to the attorney who will represent you after you sign an attorney/client agreement. Your CC to me is very important! Please do NOT forget to CC me so you will be on the list to have your property or its fair market value returned to you.

EMAIL THE STATEMENT BELOW to Thomas Ascik with a CC to me. Be sure to include your name and address:

I hereby certify that I am the bearer of Liberty Dollar warehouse receipt(s) and an interested party in any forfeiture action regarding my property. I demand the return of my property or its fair market value in a timely manner and to be informed with sufficient time to reply to any and all actions until my property is returned.



Please note that you will need to sign an attorney/client agreement and agree to pay a contingency fee prior to any legal services. NO FEE is required at this time.

But that may not be enough! If you are holding a serious amount of paper or digital Warehouse Receipts, I strongly encourage you to attend this Forfeiture Hearing on April 4, 2011 at the Federal Courthouse, 200 W Broad St. in Statesville, NC. I know the time is short, the distance is great and the cost is dear; but that is the best suggestion I can make at this time for anyone with a serious amount of paper or digital Warehouse Receipts. If you do appear, you will be called as a witness and officially recognized as an interested party in the court record.

NOTICE: There is a small chance that the Hearing may be continued (postponed) so please email me for the latest info for the Hearing.

Please do NOT let the government steal your property!! At the very least, email Thomas Ascik and send a CC to me to protect your silver. Stand up for your property and continue to be a part of the Liberty Dollar effort by demanding the gov return your silver or its fair market value.

Glenn Beck devoted his Friday, March 25, 2011 show to exposing the Federal Reserve and featured Ed Griffin. Google "glenn beck federal reserve" to find the show.
