Wyoming Introduces ‘Doomsday Bill’ To Prepare For Collapse of Federal Government

Legislation lays plans for alternate currency in aftermath of US dollar devaluation

Lawmakers in Wyoming have introduced a bill that would compel the state to prepare for a complete collapse of the federal government, laying plans for an alternate currency, a standing army raised via a military draft, and an aircraft carrier.

“House Bill 85 passed on first reading by a voice vote. It would create a state-run government continuity task force, which would study and prepare Wyoming for potential catastrophes, from disruptions in food and energy supplies to a complete meltdown of the federal government,” reports the Wyoming Star-Tribune.

Compared to the rest of the country, Wyoming’s public finances are in a relatively good condition, a fact that has spurred lawmakers to protect the state against contagion from other areas that could develop in the aftermath of a massive financial collapse.

The bill (PDF) lays the groundwork for how the state would respond in the event of a sudden devaluation of the dollar or “a situation in which the federal government has no effective power or authority over the people of the United States.”

“I don’t think there’s anyone in this room today what would come up here and say that this country is in good shape, that the world is stable and in good shape — because that is clearly not the case,” state Rep. Lorraine Quarberg, R-Thermopolis, said. “To put your head in the sand and think that nothing bad’s going to happen, and that we have no obligation to the citizens of the state of Wyoming to at least have the discussion, is not healthy.”

The bill has to pass two more House votes before it can be considered by the Senate. If passed, the task force would have until December 1, 2012 to submit a report to the governor detailing the continuity of government plan.

While authorities at both the state and federal level are making preparations for social dislocation, with FEMA recently ordering $1 billion dollars worth of dehydrated food, a total of 420 million meals, Americans who buy food supplies in bulk are being characterized as potential terrorists by the FBI.

Continuity of government plans implemented at the federal level are so sensitive that when the plan was last updated in 2007, Congressman Peter DeFazio was barred from seeing the details despite being a sitting member of the House Homeland Security Committee.

Peter DeFazio (D – OR) was asked by his constituents to see what was contained within the classified portion of the White House’s plan for operating the government after a catastrophic terrorist attack, but was denied access, leading him to comment, “Maybe the people who think there’s a conspiracy out there are right.”

Five years later, the biggest threat posed to America’s survival in its current form of government stems not from terrorists but from the country’s huge unsustainable national debt and the possibility of another economic collapse.

A USA Today article published yesterday quoted three separate financial experts who all concur that the worst of the financial turmoil is yet to come, with trend forecaster Gerald Celente warning of an “economic 9/11″ that will provoke mass civil unrest fueled by anti-government sentiment.

Ron Paul Wins in House Vote: Fed Audit Passes Despite Foolish Opposition From Democratic Leadership

Ron Paul Wins in House Vote Fed Audit Passes Despite Foolish Opposition From Democratic Leadership

UPDATE: The House of Representatives just passed Ron Paul’s Federal Reserve Transparency Act by a vote of 327 to 98. Find out if your Representative voted for this important piece of legislation here.

The bill now heads to the senate, where it will be up to the majority senate Democrats to bring it to vote. Sadly, it may not get that far. Stay tuned.

. . . . .

Originally slated for a vote on Tuesday, Ron Paul’s Federal Reserve Transparency Act was pushed back to Wednesday on the House of Representatives’ suspension calendar. This means that the vote will require a two-thirds majority for passage (290 out of 435), debate will be limited to 40 minutes, and it will be a closed rule, thus preventing amendments from being added. For all intents and purposes, the vote should be quick, painless, and successful because Paul’s “Audit the Fed” bill has 274 cosponsors, and House Democratic leaders have said they will not whip against the bill, even though they have attacked the bill as dangerous. From there it will go to the senate, where the prospect of passage is not so rosy.

During debate on the Fed Transparency Act yesterday, House Minority Whip Steny Hoyer (D – MD) gave a foolish floor speech against bill, and circulated a letter to House Democrats urging them to vote “no.” It read in part:

“In order for the Federal Reserve to do its job effectively, it should not be subject to short-term political pressures. The experience during debate on the debt ceiling last summer should demonstrate to the American public that House Republicans cannot be allowed to hold our economy or our critical economic institutions hostage in order to further their extreme agenda.”

One must wonder, what job would that be? If the job of the Fed is to act as the primary rescue vehicle for troubled banks by infusing them with money at virtually zero interest while debasing the currency, and while millions of Americans struggle to get manageable interest rates on mortgages, car loans, and credit cards from those very banks who get interest-free loans, then by this standard the Fed has done a bang-up job.

But if the job of the Fed, as its mandate says, is to achieve full employment and stable prices, it has failed abysmally. Even worse, it helped facilitate the very mess we currently find ourselves in. After the September 11 attacks, the Bush administration and the Fed were so frightened the country would slip into recession, they slashed interest rates to below 2% and kept them there for three years hoping the easy flow of credit would spur consumer demand. It did, especially in the housing market. The bubble fueled by the Fed’s loose monetary policy and the monstrous speculative casino on Wall Street that is the derivatives market burst in spectacular fashion, bringing down with it the global economy.

And now leading House Democrats oppose an audit of the Fed because it might hinder the Fed’s ability to do its job.

Given the above considerations, that wouldn’t be such a bad thing.

As for Hoyer’s contention that the Fed mustn’t be subjected to short-term political pressures, the reality is, everything is political, as a fiery Dennis Kucinich (D – OH) pointed out yesterday on the House floor.

Official found dead, head covered with plastic bag after measuring radiation in Tokyo park

According to a Japanese news outlet, Iza, on July 1st, 2011 63-year-old Mr. Takashi Kabayama was found dead with a plastic bag over his head in his home office.

Kabayama was a member of the Tokyo Metropolitan Assembly for the Liberal Democratic Party and had been measuring radiation in an assortment of locations throughout Tokyo. He would then upload his findings to his blog for the world to read, and on the day before he died (June 30, 2011) he measured 0.25 microSv/h in Mizumoto Park in the Katsushika ward located in Tokyo.

Fukushima Diary reported on February 22, 2012 via Gendai that ludicrously high levels of cesium contamination were discovered, also in Mizumoto Park. These levels were so high that they “turned out to be the same level of [the] ‘off-limits zone’ in Chernobyl.”

It is strange that this hasn’t been brought to the public’s attention sooner, because the fact that he was found at 3 AM July 1, 2011, meaning just a short while after he posted his update, is quite unusual.

Why would someone be taking radiation readings and updating their website the day that they were planning to kill themselves?

According to Fukushima Diary, none of his blog posts suggested that he might be suicidal and “he sounded motivated to measure around Tokyo,” something which hardly seems befitting of someone on the verge of taking their own life.

This is not the only anti-nuclear official who has died recently. In fact, it was reported on January 3, 2012 that 64-year-old Uemura Yasuhiro, town councilor of Kowaura Minamiise Machi Mie was found dead in his car with a shotgun wound to the chest.

Yasuhiro was reportedly taking his shotgun to his farm to keep away crows. Police thought it was suicide or a gun accident, even though the shotgun was reportedly placed outside of the car.

He was an outspoken opponent of the construction of the Ashihama nuclear plant of Chubu Electric Power, and after the Fukushima incident he began traveling around Japan lecturing about the dangers of nuclear power.

If only one official who came out against the horrors of Fukushima had perished in mysterious circumstances I would be more ready to discount the possibility of foul play.

However, when multiple bodies start piling up, all of which are connected to bringing the dangers of nuclear power into the sphere of public debate, I have to start wondering.

I don’t know how it is in Japan, but here in the United States we have what I call a “dual justice system” which treats certain sectors of society completely different than others.

On one side there is the ludicrously wealthy along with police, most politicians, most so-called officials, etc. and on the other side is the rest of us.

This allows for police to literally get away with murdering innocent tourists and brutally assault elderly people (with dementia no less) for no apparent reason only to get a written reprimand among other horrors.

Hopefully Japan is a little different and proper investigations into these mysterious incidents can be launched.
