I remain utterly astounded by the total mendacity, not just mediocrity, of the mainstream media. Nothing they write about matters. Below really matters.
Judy Shelton may be the single most important advisor to President Donald Trump on monetary policy — along with our President’s triumphs against the cabal, gaining control over the Federal Reserve, recovering stolen trillions — a gold-backed dollar, along with a balanced budget and an end to the federal income tax, will change everything. I have goose-bumps thinking about the brilliant possibilities for America the Beautiful — give me evidence-based governance on top of a gold-backed dollar, 9/11 Truth, and #UNRIG Electoral Reform Act and it is GAME OVER for the Deep State.

From Jefferson’s early warnings to Roosevelt’s Bretton Woods and Nixon’s Camp David Shock, Shelton’s Fixing the Dollar Now is rooted in the need-to-know historical foundations of today’s dollar crisis. Drawing on the hard-learned lessons of the late-18th century, she first makes clear, There can be no question that our nation’s Founders deliberately sought to ensure that the new government…would never be able to indulge in the same monetary fraud that had brought ruin and cynicism to the individual states. And yet, Shelton argues the story of sound money in America has been an incremental slide away from these foundations in the name of political expediency. We need to end the practice of having our elastic currency serve as the default mechanism for government fiscal irresponsibility, she writes. Easier said than done? Shelton offers five complementary approaches weighed carefully and tailored for today’s window of political possibility. Ranging from a reexamination of the Federal Reserve’s dual mandate to a responsible return to gold convertibility, Shelton’s solutions represent a bold yet well-reasoned challenge to today’s leaders in Washington.
