Liberty Dollar ‘form of domestic terrorism’


The leader of a group that marketed a fake currency called Liberty Dollars in the Asheville area and elsewhere has been found guilty by a federal jury of conspiracy against the government in a case of “domestic terrorism.”

Bernard von NotHaus was convicted Friday at the conclusion of an eight-day trial in U.S. District Court in Statesville. The jury deliberated less than two hours, according to the Department of Justice.

“Attempts to undermine the legitimate currency of this country are simply a unique form of domestic terrorism,” U.S. Attorney Anne Tompkins said. “While these forms of anti-government activities do not involve violence, they are every bit as insidious and represent a clear and present danger to the economic stability of this country.”

U.S. Attorney Anne Tompkins added. “We are determined to meet these threats through infiltration, disruption, and dismantling of organizations which seek to challenge the legitimacy of our democratic form of government.”

    To all those DC beltway wonks, you are right. Creating a sound currency without the use of violence is an act of terrorism, to the monsters the call them self " US Government."  All I can say is, " keep up the good work." Really, bomb some more 9 year old getting fire wood, shoot another child's dog because there may be dry flower in the house.  Yes that is right continue with you violence and their will not be a bunker deep enough a castle wall high enough to save you when the people wake up.  What is that on the wind heading into CA. that is the wind of change.  Guess what your precious military and swat teams wont be of any use, then the people will under stand that being " United" in the crimes against humanity is not a good thing no matter how much American Idol c., they watch.
