Procede spedito il progetto texano di trasferire il proprio oro dalla Fed sul suolo "patrio"

 

E ci hanno messo veramente poco i texani a passare dalle parole ai fatti:

Zero Hedge - Writing's On The Wall: Texas Pulls $1 Billion In Gold From NY Fed, Makes It "Non-Confiscatable"
Submitted by Tyler Durden on 06/13/2015

La mancanza di fiducia nell'affidabilità delle banca centrali pare che stia dilagando (soprattutto la Fed ma anche la Bank of England, Er). Prima la Germania (veramente prima il Venezuela di Chavez, Er) poi l'Olanda, poi l'Austria.. e adesso il Texas ha reso operativa la legge che prevede il rimpatrio di 1 miliardo di dollari in oro dalla Fed di New York. L'oro sarà trasferito in una nuovo deposito blindato sul suolo dello stato.

Ecco la dichiarazione officiale del Governatore Abbott dopo la firma della legge:
Governor Greg Abbott today signed House Bill 483 (Capriglione, R-Southlake; Kolkhorst, R-Brenham) to establish a state gold bullion depository administered by the Office of the Comptroller. The law will repatriate $1 billion of gold bullion from the Federal Reserve in New York to Texas. The bullion depository will serve as the custodian, guardian and administrator of bullion that may be transferred to or otherwise acquired by the State of Texas. Governor Abbott issued the following statement:

“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."
Capriglione (il politico locale che ho promosso questa mossa, Er) ha detto allo Star-Telegram:
“We are not talking Fort Knox. But when I first announced this, I got so many emails and phone calls from people literally all over the world who said they want to store their gold … in a Texas depository. People have this image of Texas as big and powerful … so for a lot of people, this is exactly where they would want to go with their gold.”
Pare che gente da tutto il mondo voglia ora conservare il suo oro li, in Texas.

La legge prevede anche una sezione contro la confisca da parte del governo federale:
Section A2116.023 of the bill states: “A purported confiscation, requisition, seizure, or other attempt to control the ownership … is void ab initio and of no force or effect.”
Quindi pare proprio che siano disposti a proteggere l'oro anche dal governo... anche con le armi? Jade Helm inizia proprio domani, lunedì. E nell'esercitazione militare lo stato del texas è stato previsto come "hostile" ... qualcuno in Texas, intanto, ovviamente arriva anche a parlare di un possibile gold e/o silver standard in nuce (un tantinello prematuro?):
Effectively, the state of Texas will protect any gold stored in the depository from the federal government.

And free from the threat of confiscation, private citizens can use gold and silver as money, completely bypassing the paper money system.

People can legally do that with gold contracts. The difficulty is the implementation. Now Texas has set up a mechanism with the depository. We have accounts in that institution and can easily transfer back and forth certain amounts. So we can run our money system a gold or silver basis if we were so inclined,” said Vieira.

This would not be possible if the gold is stored in a bank because of the risks of bank holidays and bankruptcies. It would also not be possible if the federal government could confiscate gold.

According to Vieira, this anti-seizure provision rests on Article 1, section 10 of the Constitution of the United States, which obliges the States to not make anything tender in payment of debts apart from gold and silver coin.

“If someone from the Department of Justice comes along you are going to see legal and political fireworks. The state is going to say ‘we need to have a mechanism to make gold and silver money. This is pursuant to the constitutional provision we have. You can’t touch this. Our state power on the constitutional level is more powerful than any statute you may pass,'” said Vieira.

Because one of the litigant parties is a state, the case would go directly to the Supreme Court.

“We are talking about something completely new in terms of the legal playing field. This is no longer a fringe concept,” he adds, but cautions about a possible fight with the federal government: “We will have to see how committed the governor and the attorney general are.”
Un altro passo verso la famosa secessione del Texas?
