Felony Friday: Counterfeiters Could Destroy The StateSubmitted by Jao171 on Fri, 10/18/2013 - 12:06
One sure-fire way to end up being charged with a felony is by competing with a monopoly that is run by the State. Crimes against the State are always pursued aggressively and punished to the highest letter of the law. Creating copies of the only approved fiat currency ranks at the top of the list.
The State does not tolerate counterfeiting of Federal Reserve Notes. The creation of competing fiat currencies would lift the veil of magic that cloaks the shady operations of the central bank and expose the fraudulent system. The masses would quickly realize that the emperor has no clothes. This will be discussed later.
First let’s review a recent case of alleged counterfeiting charges brought against eight suspects in High Point, North Carolina. WFMY News 2 reports the suspects have been charged with two state counts of felony counterfeiting and will probably face federal charges.
When it comes to counterfeiting the Secret Service almost always gets involved. The federal agency that most people think is primarily tasked with protecting the President and world leaders actually had a different singular focus when founded. The reason the Secret Service was created in 1865 was solely to suppress counterfeiting of U.S. currency.
