This does not come to me as a surprise, but I just found out that the Federal Government is seeking to dismiss the Liberty Dollar lawsuit. Effectively government lawyers trashed his case with extreme prejudice.
Main grounds for dismissal:
1) Von Nothaus Has Not Stated Jurisdictional Grounds for Suing the United States and His Claims Must Be Dismissed.
2) Von Nothaus Has Not Shown an Actual Controversy and His Complaint Must Be Dismissed
3) Declaratory and Injunctive Actions Which Interfere With the Criminal Process Are Not Appropriate.
The true nature of the beast:
*taken from the motion to dismiss*
“The United States, as sovereign, is immune from suit save as it consents to be sued.” United States v. Sherwood, 312 U.S. 584, 586 (1941). Indeed, “the terms of its consent to be sued in any court define that court’s jurisdiction to entertain the suit.” Id. “If the Government does waive its sovereign immunity, it alone dictates the terms and conditions on which it may be sued.” Macklin v. United States of America, 300 F.3d 814, 820 (7th Cir. 2002). Further, “[a] suit against federal officers in their official capacity . . . is a suit against the United States.” Del Raine v. Carlson, 826 F.2d 698, 703 (7th Cir. 1987)”
Translation: The government is an omnipotent entity akin to a god which cannot be held responsible for any of its action unless IT choses to recognize responsibility and even then IT alone can dictates any damn terms it so pleases, so bugger off you pesky citizen and bow down to its mighty sovereignty or else you’ll find its cold boot stomping on your face.
You can find the government’s motion to dismiss over here:
Well folks, you can count this as another case of the government trampling over your freedom to choose.
I wish Mr. Bernard von Nothaus all the best and hope that somehow he manages to rescue the Liberty Dollar from the brink of destruction.
