The Fed is the root of all money evils

The Federal Reserve, more commonly known as “The Fed”, is the central banking system of the United States. As the common saying among sound money endorsers goes, The Fed is “no more ‘federal’ than Federal Express”. It is in actuality a quasi-federal cartel of private banksters and federal bureaucrats which centrally dictate United States economic policy with no oversight, transparency, or accountability; in fact, it has never been audited in its entire existence. The Fed claims one of its primary objectives is to control inflation, but in fact, the purchasing power of the dollar has decreased by more than 95% since its initiation, and the US has seen a number of recessionary and depressionary periods.

US dollars, more accurately called Federal Reserve Notes, are fiat money; that is, money backed by nothing of intrinsic value, traditionally such as gold or silver. For this reason, The Fed can engage in a little-understood but extremely detrimental act known as quantitative easing (QE). QE is, simply, the printing (or digital creation) of new (but worthless) money (also known as “expanding the money supply”), and is tantamount to legalized counterfeiting. This has the effect of decreasing the value of all other money in circulation, essentially stealing from your savings.

To counteract this criminal enterprise, the US must drastically reform its monetary policy. We must Audit the Fed and determine exactly where our money has been going for decades. We must return to a system of sound money, backed by a valuable asset like gold or silver.

It is no coincidence that the Federal Reserve Act and the Sixteenth Amendment (which established the income tax) were enacted in the same year, 1913 (as a matter of fact, the Seventeenth Amendment was introduced in this year as well, making it a very bad year for the US). Prior to the income tax, most citizens were able to live the majority of their lives without the involvement of the government. The government was funded via consumption taxes, and a return to such a method would do us well.

The Fair Tax would simplify and basically eliminate the current leviathan tax code, decreasing the burden on individuals and small businesses. It would place an emphasis on savings (the wealth of a country), as individuals would have an added incentive to contemplate their own spending. And it would spur economic growth and return jobs to the US, as corporations scramble to invest in the return of industry.

Audit The Fed, pt. 3! … then ABOLISH it!

previously I have made posts on HR 1207: Federal Reserve Transparency Act of 2009 [GT] [OC] and S 604: Federal Reserve Sunshine Act of 2009 [GT] [OC], “To amend title 31, United States Code, to reform the manner in which the Board of Governors of the Federal Reserve System is audited by the Comptroller General of the United States and the manner in which such audits are reported, and for other purposes.”

HR 1207 now has over 200 cosponsors (208 as of today)! it is also getting lots of well-deserved attention in the news. here’s one: Ron Paul’s Audit the Fed Bill Hits 207 Co-Sponsors House Minority Leader Boehner joins bi-partisan coalition supporting Federal Reserve transparency.

The Fed is literally a conglomeration of private banks which loans money at interest to the American people, for its own profit. it has the power to flood or drain the economy’s money supply. it has recently bailed out numerous special interests (which it won’t name, even to Congressional oversight committees) with billions more of our taxpayer money. it has recently hired a lobbyist to combat the Audit The Fed movement, because it knows that once we find out how it has been mishandling our money they will all be out of jobs and hopefully behind bars for treason.

there are also these other Congress bills acting on The Fed. HR 1348: Federal Reserve Sunshine Act [GT] [OC], and S 513: Federal Reserve Transparency Act [GT] [OC], “To require the Board of Governors of the Federal Reserve System to publish information on financial assistance provided to various entities, and for other purposes.”

HR 833: Federal Reserve Board Abolition Act [GT] [OC], “To abolish the Board of Governors of the Federal Reserve System and the Federal reserve banks, to repeal the Federal Reserve Act, and for other purposes.” now, I don’t think the majority of the people understand the significance of these bills. these are historical.. these are Andrew Jackson-esque! why is this bill important? Fed Would Be Shut Down If It Were Audited, Expert Says.

keep the heat on. keep contacting your Representatives and urging them to support these bills, using the techniques I described in the first two posts, linked in the first paragraph above. and if they won’t, vote them out! there is no reason to keep the Congress from having monetary oversight over We The People’s money; the Constitution specifically grants Congress with this power, and so any Representatives against this bill are in direct violation of their sworn oath. I end this post, as many others, with some insight from the old men with psychic powers:

If the People only understood the rank injustice of our money and banking system there would be a revolution before morning!
– Andrew Jackson

If the American People ever allow the banks to control the issuance of their currency, first by inflation and then by deflation, the banks, and corporations that grow up around them, will deprive the people of all property until their children wake up homeless on the continent their fathers conquered. I sincerely believe the banking institutions, having the issuing power of money, are more dangerous to liberty than standing armies! Already they have set up a monetary aristocracy that has the government at defiance. The issuing power [of currency] should be taken from the banks and restored to Congress and to the People, to whom it belongs!
– Thomas Jefferson

Your republic will be as fearfully plundered and laid waste by barbarians in the twentieth century as the Roman Empire was in the fifth; with this difference; that the Huns and Vandals who ravaged the Roman Empire came from without and your Huns and Vandals will have been engendered within your own country, by your own institutions.
– Thomas B. Macaulay

HR 1207: Audit The Fed

“The Fed”, or The Federal Reserve, is a private conglomeration of banks which literally controls the U.S. economy and has the power to print money, but has never been audited. when asked fiscal questions by Congress, the Chairman of The Fed (currently Ben Bernanke) is free to, and ususally does, NOT answer. Alan Greenspan himself has said that The Fed is above the law. does it make sense that the most powerful private corporation in our country, one which performs all its operations with our taxpayer money, has never been audited? it’s time for this to change.

UPDATE: Rep. Alan Grayson [D-FL] asks the Federal Reserve Inspector General about the trillions of dollars lent or spent by the Federal Reserve and where it went, and the trillions of off balance sheet obligations. Inspector General Elizabeth Coleman responds that the IG does not know and is not tracking where this money is.

this is a bill by Ron Paul [GT] [OC], but it is the epitome of a nonpartisan issue. I can’t imagine a “Democrat” or “Republican” going home and saying, “well I don’t really think we have a right to know where our money is going, so I think the Federal Reserve should continue giving our money away in secrecy”.

here’s how to support this bill, and it’s almost as easy as reading what you’ve just read (well, it will take about 5 minutes):

  • go to faxZero, which lets you send 2 faxes per day for free. put your name and email into the “Sender Information” box (it’s important to use a valid email, as you will be sent a confirmation which you have to click before the fax will be sent).
  • download this pdf. attach it to the “Fax Information” section in faxZero, and enter the Confirmation Code.
  • find your state’s reps which are NOT currently co-sponsors of this bill (here are Virginia’s reps – currently the gentlemen from districts 1 and 6 ARE co-sponsors – the rest need to hear it from us!).
  • go to your rep’s official website and find the contact page (for example, Rep. Randy Forbes). find the fax number for their Washington D.C. Office, and copy and paste it into the “Receiver Information” box in faxZero after putting your rep’s name into this section.
  • UPDATE: HERE ARE NAMES AND FAX NUMBERS:
    • Rep. Rob Wittman [R] at 2022254382 (already a co-sponsor)
    • Rep. Glenn Nye [D] at 2022254218
    • Rep. Robert Scott [D] at 2022258354

  • click “Send Free Fax Now”! you will receive a confirmation message in your email – click it. congrats! you have just contacted your Representative about one of the most important issues facing our government today…
  • but don’t stop there! send another one to another rep. then, tomorrow, send two more. keep sending until every rep in the nation gets the message! we wanna know where the gold at.

if you have any questions, please leave them in the comments. I would love to answer them. it’s time for transparency.

what is Bilderberg?

hmm – that’s a good question. my suggestion: Google it!

so, did you Google it yet? if you did, you might have noticed that Google’s new “dropdown magic” (the suggested results that drop down whenever you start typing) didn’t seem to work correctly for the phrase Bilderberg. now, maybe there’s a reason for this – maybe there just aren’t any articles out these about Bilderberg! after all, that is how the dropdown magic is calculated – the more results a keyword has, the more important it will be in the dropdown.

so, did you notice how many results are returned for the term Bilderberg? 1,530,000. seems like that should be enough to get some face time, right?

now, try this. start typing the word, until you have typed “Bilde”. notice something weird? they neglected to censor the misspellings! “bildeburgers” and “bildenbergs” are shown in the dropdown magic – and did you notice their results? 1,180 and 10,400 respectively. seems like the term with about 1,000 x the results should show up here, right?

now that I’ve hopefully got you intrigued, it is your duty to look into what the Bilderberg Group actually is, and why it’s being censored. at first you won’t believe it, or maybe you won’t care. maybe you’ll think I’m a crazy conspiracy theorist – if you’re reading this, hopefully you know me better than that. but maybe, just maybe, you’ll educate yourself on the most important issue impacting our current state of affairs – the Federal Reserve System (“The Fed”). and then maybe you’ll investigate Infowars and Alex Jones, and look into New World Order, and Illuminati. and if you look into this enough, you might come to find that the world you think you’ve lived in is drastically different from the world you actually live in.

“We are grateful to the Washington Post, the New York Times, Time magazine and other great publications whose directors have attended our meetings and respected the promises of discretion for almost forty years. It would have been impossible for us to develop our plan for the world if we had been subject to the bright lights of publicity during those years. But, the world is now more sophisticated and prepared to march towards a world-government. The supranational sovereignty of an intellectual elite and world bankers is surely preferable to the National auto determination practiced in past centuries.”
– David Rockefeller
