Author: A Gold Standard Is ‘a Very Impractical Way to Run a Modern Economy’

The United States abandoned the gold standard for the dollar in 1971; President Donald Trump advocates for a return to it. Journalist James Ledbetter argues in his book “One Nation Under Gold” that “many of the worst economic catastrophes that have happened in American history happened when we were on a gold standard,” he told NPR.

He told Doc Thompson on TV Thursday about all the places the U.S. is known to store gold — and all the mysteries surrounding it. He said that although he is “not a purveyor of conspiracy theories,” the facts surrounding gold in America show “lots of things are possible.”

Ledbetter disclosed the “fishy” tale of former president Franklin Delano Roosevelt’s 1933 buy up of Americans’ gold and strange documentation choices by the government. The U.S. also flew “tons and tons” of unweighed gold  in 1967 from Fort Knox to the United Kingdom, which was panicked over the devaluation of the pound.

He said that gold is a “very impractical way to run a modern economy,” what with the expense of finding it, getting it out of the ground, and storing it — not to mention the government’s unexplained transportation history of the precious metal.

Was Dr. Fauci involved in a COVID cover-up?

Released emails between virologist Christian Anderson and Dr. Fauci during early 2020 show Dr. Fauci was aware several, competent doctors believed the COVID virus contained genomes 'inconsistent with expectations from evolutionary theory.' Or, in other words, they didn't believe it simply evolved from a bat. So, then, what changed? And why was Fauci so concerned when a 2012 paper regarding his interest in 'gain of function' research began to circulate online? It's all just speculation for now, but Glenn shares HIS theory: Fauci may have been involved in a major COVID-related coverup…

THIS is why Dr. Fauci’s emails ELIMINATE his credibility

Glenn breaks down the recent Dr. Fauci scandal, explaining WHY his recently released emails are so damning. Not only do his correspondence disprove the theory he was being censored by the Trump administration, but they eliminate any credibility he may have once had on the COVID pandemic, too. Even further: they confirm he lied under oath. The mainstream media may want you to think he's 'Mother Theresa in pants,' but these emails tell a MUCH different story. So, is it finally time to #FireFauci?

LIVE NOW: Golden State Gulag: California's pursuit of Communism is a WARNING for America

California has gone to hell. Homelessness and violence have spiked. Civil liberties and businesses have been destroyed in the name of "COVID safety."

They want their FAILURE to become YOUR FUTURE.

4 QUESTIONS the DHS must answer regarding their domestic ‘terror’ warning

The DHS recently released a rare terror bulletin, warning Americans of an increasing threat: domestic extremists.
