Cheese From the Moon

Into the New City came the “Federal Reserve.” As camouflage, districts of the “Fed” were placed elsewhere in the New Atlantis. (Background: The Tao of Dow, Ersjdamoo’s Blog, August 28, 2015.)

The New City was what Nostradamus called New York City. The New Atlantis was the plan of Sir Francis Bacon.

Francis Bacon planned for an ideal commonwealth, in a “land far away and many years in the future.” His book, The New Atlantis, describes his dream. [1]

“We find that today,” wrote the late Virginia Fellows, “few know how vital a part Francis Bacon played not only in Newfoundland but in the founding of Jamestown. A careful search of the archives of history reveals that Bacon drew up the papers for the king’s signature granting the charter for the Virginia Company of London.” [2]

The Bank of North America

The Bank of North America was born on May 26, 1781, by resolution of Congress. An “ordinance of the 31st of [D]ecember following, entitled, ‘An Ordinance to incorporate the Subscribers to the Bank of North America” came next. [3]

An Act of April 2, 1792 established a mint and regulated the coins of the United States. Dollars or units were “to contain three hundred and seventy-one grains and four sixteenth parts of a grain of pure, or four hundred and sixteen grains of standard silver.” [4]

There is, wrote Alexander Hamilton, “an intimate connection of interest between the government and the Bank of a Nation.” [3] Notice though which of the two Hamilton capitalizes.

Disadvantages of “Banks”, Hamilton reported to what he calls “the house” (no capitalization), included (1) “That they serve to increase usury”; (2) “That they furnish temptations to overtrading”; (3) “That they give to bankrupt and fraudulent traders a fictitious credit, which enables them to maintain false appearances and to extend their impositions”; and (4) “That they have a tendency to banish gold and silver from the country.” [3]

Aid “is sometimes afforded by banks to unskilful adventurers and fraudulent traders,” added President George Washington’s Treasury Secretary. [3]

But would a National Bank be Constitutional? Secretary of State Thomas Jefferson and Attorney General Edmund Randolph objected on the grounds that the United States did not have the authority to erect corporations. Enumerated powers means that Congress may exercise only the powers that the Constitution grants it. Congress could only exercise powers specifically given to it. And it was affirmed by Jefferson and Randolph “that the power of erecting a corporation is not included in any of the enumerated powers.” [5]

To this, Alexander Hamilton argued the power to erect corporations was implied. It was “ends justify the means,” according to Hamilton. Power vested in a government was “sovereign”, and that “includes by force of the term, a right to employ all the means requisite, and fairly applicable to the attainment of the ends of such power” unless specifically precluded by the Constitution. Because the Constitution does not actually say the Congress cannot erect corporations, this means it can erect corporations, argued Hamilton. [5]

That is obviously a ridiculous argument. Because the Constitution does not specify that the moon must not be declared the only source of cheese allowed, this would mean the Congress can pass such a law and the President can enforce it.

Corporations As Persons

In 1819, the U.S. Supreme Court recognized corporations as having the same rights as natural persons to contract and to enforce contracts. In 1886, the Supremes suggested that because of the 14th Amendment, which prohibited a State from denying to any person within its jurisdiction the equal protection of the laws, this meant corporations too might be protected. In 1888, “the Court clearly affirmed the doctrine, holding, ‘Under the designation of “person” there is no doubt that a private corporation is included [in the Fourteenth Amendment].'” [6]

More “cheese from the moon” came in 2010, when the Supremes held that corporate funding of independent political broadcasts in candidate elections cannot be limited under the First Amendment, the so-called Citizens United decision. [6] After all, corporations were “persons” and so had free speech rights. It does not specifically state in the Constitution that corporations are not persons, and so, by the Alexander Hamilton argument, this must mean they can be persons.

But can an entire corporation be hauled off to jail? Apparently so, since they are “persons.”

This means that all shareholders of the “Federal Reserve” can be put on trial and imprisoned. Who are the shareholders though? A judge could issue a search warrant to find out: “This ‘person’, known as ‘Federal Reserve’, is hereby ordered to turn over a complete list of the names of its stock owners.” Why not? If “Federal Reserve” is a person, then a search warrant could be executed.

Next time a corporation is found guilty of a crime, because it is a “person” it can be imprisoned. This would mean all share holders go to jail.

Or some of us might form our own corporation, called The Corporation of Disgruntled Gentlemen. Then our corporation could pretty much do as it pleased, with no risk to ourselves. The Corporation of Disgruntled Gentlemen probably would eventually be investigated and fined, yes. No problem. We could just declare our corporation dead and then start a new one.
