A renewed fight to audit the Fed is gaining steam. In the previous congress, Dr Ron Paul's most urgent cause cleared the house, only to disappear into the abyss of senate. This time, a new bill (S.209/H.R 24) is before our representatives -- and has twenty-five co-sponsors in the senate and over 150 in the house!
We must ACT on this moment. Despite the momentum, the bill is again being buried deep in committee, darkness trying to smother light. This battle will take the combined force of every citizen who recognizes, as our forefathers warned, that all of our other freedoms are easily stolen away by those who would secretly hold the purse strings.
The Constitution explicitly says ONLY congress shall have "power to coin money and regulate the value thereof." The Congress, however, on Christmas Eve 1913, after the majority of its members had gone home for the Holiday, quietly handed off this sacred trust to a group of private bankers with the passage of the Federal Reserve Act – written by these same bankers. This private-for-profit monopoly is in charge of our US money supply and interest rate.
A full audit of The Fed has not taken place since 1953. A partial audit in 2011 revealed that The Fed had loaned $16 trillion since 2007 to various corporations and banks, many of which were foreign, all in complete secrecy. Where the money they create goes, what relationships the bank has, what conflicts of interest are exploited, all these are all in the dark despite the fact that the Fed decisions in controlling the country’s purse strings are more impactful on our country than the power wielded by those we elect.
The Fed resists any audit, maintaining its secrecy. Their defense: “Seeing what we do and trying to control it would politicize the process.”
This is the institution that CREATES our money at its will, and it is beyond inspection? It is the institution that controls the world through its manipulation of interest rates. This is the for-profit holding of the investment banks that claims to master plan the economy for OUR benefit, creates major bubbles, denies they exist, deflates our money 90% since its creation, and then grabs more control to fix the messes. They are the institution that can make loans of billions of dollars of their own created money, and we can’t know where the money goes and under what terms?
The founding fathers and other leaders warned time and again that such a monetary system was the worst threat we would face, and the culprits have confessed to the evil they have bred. Please take the time to consider these quotes. Take the time to do a little research on your own. Please take the time to DO something, whether on your own or through the ready-to-send mechanism at Loyal9.org. As our senate-staff consultant tells us, each letter is counted by them as a thousand votes bringing pressure.
Andrew Jackson said, “Eternal vigilance by the people is the price of liberty, and that you must pay the price if you wish to secure the blessing.” Please make this issue personal and please make this fight yours. The purse string is the power. This may be the most important issue of all.
“It is well that the people of the nation do not understand our banking and monetary system, for if they did, I believe there would be a revolution before tomorrow morning." -Henry Ford
“It’s the real truth of the matter is, as you and I know, that a financial element in the large centers has owned the government of the U.S. since the days of Andrew Jackson.” -Franklin Delano Roosevelt
"All the perplexities, confusion and distress in America arise, not from defects in their Constitution or Confederation, not from want of honor or virtue, so much as from the downright ignorance of the nature of coin, credit and circulation." -John Adams
"Most Americans have no real understanding of the operation of the international money lenders. The accounts of the Federal Reserve System have never been audited. It operates outside the control of Congress and manipulates the credit of the United States." -Sen. Barry Goldwater
"We have, in this country, one of the most corrupt institutions the world has ever known. I refer to the Federal Reserve Board. This evil institution has impoverished the people of the United States and has practically bankrupted our government. It has done this through the corrupt practices of the moneyed vultures who control it." -Congressman Louis T. McFadden in 1932
"A great industrial nation is controlled by its system of credit. Our system of credit is concentrated in the hands of a few men. We have come to be one of the worst ruled, one of the most completely controlled and dominated governments in the world--no longer a government of free opinion, no longer a government by conviction and vote of the majority, but a government by the opinion and duress of small groups of dominant men." -President Woodrow Wilson
"I believe that banking institutions are more dangerous to our liberties than standing armies. Already they have raised up a monied aristocracy that has set the government at defiance. The issuing power (of money) should be taken away from the banks and restored to the people to whom it properly belongs." -Thomas Jefferson
“The money powers prey upon the nation in times of peace and conspire against it in times of adversity. It is more despotic than a monarchy, more insolent than autocracy, and more selfish than bureaucracy. It denounces as public enemies all who question its methods or throw light upon its crimes. I have two great enemies, the Southern Army in front of me and the bankers in the rear. Of the two, the one at my rear is my greatest foe.” -Abraham Lincoln
"Give me control of a nation's money and I care not who makes it's laws" -Mayer Amschel Bauer Rothschild
The hour is grave because of what we have forgotten.
And now there are two (er, three?). Did it matter which? After watching the debates, it seems being AGAINST Liberty is now a campaign technique. And the winners are . . . (not the Bill of Rights).
Target date is 2030
Take a failed issue. Give it a righteous new name. Get people begging for government salvation. Ram the details through in secrecy. Paranoid indeed.
A must read: on the surface it is about the people who work behind the scenes for Trump. More deeply, it is an expose on the way the world really works. How are we brought to believe what we believe?
