Current News – 02.26.2017
- The Framers of our nation established that gold and silver are money, but federal taxing authorities in recent decades have required taxpayers to pay taxes on this form of money when its exchange for Federal Reserve Notes results in nominal capital “gains.”
- But that problem may soon be mitigated, at least in Idaho.
- A state representative has advanced legislation to remove state income taxes when Idaho taxpayers sell their precious metals.
- House Majority Leader Mike Moyle introduced House Bill 206 on February 23rd to amend Idaho revenue statutes, providing “that capital gains and losses on precious metals bullion and monetized bullion sales be added to or subtracted from Idaho taxable income.”
- Similar to a bill recently passed by Arizona’s state House, Idaho HB206 is a pure and tax neutral proposal. That’s because both precious metals gains (income) and losses are backed out of the calculation of one’s Idaho taxable income. While HB206’s passage will have little fiscal impact as to Idaho tax revenues, it will have a larger impact on Idahoans’ freedoms.
- By removing precious metals from the state income tax, Idaho can stop compounding the problem and instead help promote the adoption and widespread use of constitutional money.

Zimbabwe: U.S.$ Disappears From Banking System
- Transactional activity in Zimbabwe in recent weeks indicates a slow disappearance of the United States dollar, which is being replaced by bond notes.
- The bond notes were introduced last year under the $200 million export incentive to supplement dwindling dollar supplies due to weak exports.
- “There used to be days when I received my withdrawals in United States dollars or bond notes while other times it was in both denominations.
- “But, most of the time now we are receiving bond notes and very rarely in US dollars.”
- About a month ago, Starbucks CEO Howard Schultz decided to ‘take a stand’ in defiance of Trump’s immigration executive order and penned a message to the world vowing, among other things, to hire 10,000 refugees over the next 5 years and “build bridges, not walls, with Mexico”.
- Unfortunately, Schultz quickly found out the hard way that while most adult-aged Americans can agree that they like coffee, roughly 50% disagree with his political opinions. Which, according to Yahoo Finance, has sent the company’s “brand perception” into a downward spiral since January 29th.
The coffee giant’s consumer perception levels have fallen by two-thirds since late January, according to YouGov BrandIndex.
In Starbucks’ case, perception is still overall positive, but significantly lower than it was prior to CEO Howard Schultz published a public letter outlining the company’s plans to give refugees jobs.
- Adam Steinbaugh of the Washington Examiner has been investigating these schools, and he’s found that the administrators are encouraging students to snitch on each other (and their professors). Not to expose criminal behavior or cheating, but to target inappropriate speech. He found that 230 colleges have what are called “Bias Response Teams,” which are made up of either campus cops or administrators, and whose sole job is to investigate mostly anonymous claims of offensive speech.
- And as you might expect, these schools define “bias” in extremely vague and subjective terms. . It can include anything that offends anyone.
. The students and professors who are ratted out are usually reprimanded by administrators, and forced to endure conversations on the Civil Rights movement, and how their words hurt others.
- Siti Aisyah, the Indonesian woman who is being held in Malaysia for poisoning Kim Jong-un’s half-brother, Kim Jong-nam, in Kuala Lumpur airport last week, says that she was paid $90 dollars for the attack, which she believed to have been a prank.“She only said in general that somebody asked her to do this activity. She only said in general she met with some people who looked Japanese or Korean,”Malaysian police say that the “baby oil” was in fact VX, a powerful poison classified by the UN as a weapon of mass destruction, which is prohibitively expensive and mostly manufactured in state-sponsored military facilities.
- “Her health is stable. During the meeting with embassy officials, Doan Thi Huong said she was being taken advantage of and thought she was starring in a comedy video,”
- The North Korean leader’s half-brother can then be seen staggering around and asking for help, complaining of blurry vision – a symptom of VX poisoning.
- Why an eruption of media reports about an obscure figure, away from the center of power in Pyongyang for years? Why now? Why publicly to be seen worldwide on videotape?
- Who had motive and opportunity to kill him? If North Korean authorities wanted him eliminated, why did they wait so long? Why a public execution, making it easy for its detractors to automatically lay blame where it likely doesn’t belong.
- Reports indicate North Korea planned sending its Foreign Ministry director of US affairs Choe Son Hui to lead a delegation. On the US side, former Carter official/National Committee on American Foreign Policy senior vice president Donald Zagoria and former Clinton 1994 chief denunclearization deal negotiator Robert Gallucci were involved.
- Chemical weapons experts are mystified. “I have more questions than answers at this point,” says Richard Guthrie, formerly of the Stockholm International Peace Research Institute. VX is the most toxic substance known – 10 milligrams of the oily liquid on your skin, less than a drop, is lethal. But Kim took some time to show any symptoms, while the poison was handled by unprotected assailants, and didn’t contaminate other people.
- The use of the chemical, narrows the list of suspects, however, to someone who has or can make a small amount of VX. It isn’t hard to make, but the precursor chemicals are tightly controlled.
- The International Crisis Group think tank estimates that the state stockpiles 2,500-5,000 tons, including nerve agents such as VX. but has no proof.
- North Korea helped Syria build its chemical weapons stockpile, which included VX. It is one of only four countries not in the treaty banning chemical weapons.
- That is what makes Kim’s case so strange. VX is called a “nerve agent” because it inhibits the acetyl cholinesterase enzyme which breaks down acetylcholine, the chemical that transmits the signal to contract from nerves to muscles. If acetylcholine does not break down, muscles stay helplessly contracted, and victims die of paralysed breathing. They also go into convulsions, froth at the mouth, turn blue and display other tell-tale symptoms.
- . Kim himself is said to have reported liquid smeared on his face that burned his eyes, when he went to the airport medical station for help.
- The attacker was handling a cloth with no apparent protection, not wielding a syringe. The women are then said to have run to a washroom to wash their hands, where one vomited. Both are consistent with VX. But nothing else seems to have happened to them, even though they were apprehended soon after.
- “Any splash of a tiny droplet anywhere on her body would have resulted in some symptoms,” says chemical weapons expert Jean-Pascal Zanders . “She was jailed, but nothing like that was reported.”
- The attackers might have been pre-treated with atropine, a drug that blocks the effects of VX. But the medical staff who handled Kim in the ambulance where he later died – with convulsions, which is consistent with VX but also other poisons – would not have been pre-treated.
- The US and Russia are the only countries that have admitted owning VX stockpiles, but more countries are believed to hold it.
- Commander of the US Central Command (CENTCOM), General Joseph Votel, has secretly visited the Syrian Arab Republic in order to meet with leaders of US-backed militant groups. The visit was made just two days after it was announced that Washington is going to dispatch more US troops to the Arab country.
- Votel said that there is a need to dispatch more US troops to Syria in order to increase “mobility” and “firepower” of the US-backed group of militants.
- Votel made his Syrian trip just several days after a similar visit to the country of Republican Senator John McCain, who is the chairman of the Senate Armed Services Committee.
- A commander for the Iraqi popular forces has claimed that US forces are trying to evacuate ISIS commanders from the of city Tal Afar near Mosul.
- The Iraqi military have reported that the US army is trying to transfer ISIS commanders that are trapped in regions besieged by the Iraqi army, to safe areas.
- Eyewitnesses disclosed that the US military planes helped the ISIL terrorists in Tal Afar region West of Mosul.
- “We saw several packages dropped out of a US army aircraft in the surrounding areas of the city of Tal Afar in Western Nineveh province and six people also came out of a US plane in the ISIL-controlled areas,” the Arabic-language media quoted a number of eyewitnesses as saying.
