We The People to Congress: Audit the Fed!


John Fitzgerald Kennedy: The very word “secrecy” is repugnant in a free and open society.

Jive Dadson: That, of course, was the well known voice of President John Fitzgerald Kennedy.

Hello everybody, Jive Dadson here. I’ve been asked to come out of YouTube semi-retirement to make a video about a very important subject. It’s about your money, and it’s about secrecy.

The Federal Reserve System creates and controls our money, your money. In recent months, private demands under the Freedom of Information Act have been met with the answer, “We won’t tell you, we don’t have to”. In open hearings, Congressmen have asked, “Who is receiving the bailout money?” They were met with the answer, “We won’t tell you, we don’t have to”.

Even though the balance sheet of the Fed has ballooned by trillions of dollars in recent months, they’re right. The law says they don’t have to tell anyone where the newly created money went. You see, when the Fed was created in 1913, its secrecy was written into law, the justification being that secrecy would keep politics out. Does that make any sense to you at all?

Federal Reserve has never had a proper audit, and it never will, unless we demand it. This should concern every American. It’s not about left or right, it’s not about Democrat or Republican, it’s about your security and the wellbeing of your children and grandchildren.

The Federal Reserve Transparency Act of 2009 has wide bipartisan support. Unlike so many bills that go before Congress, it’s simple and it’s open. It’s very short. Nothing is hidden in obscure sections. Its only provisions are a one-time audit of the Federal Reserve System and a report by the Government Accountability Office on their findings.

I urge you to contact your U.S. representative, both to your senators, send them emails, telephone them, send them mail and send them faxes. Do it today, do it tomorrow, do it the day after that. Send them a fax every Friday.

I’d like for you to tell your friends and associates. I would be honored if you sent them a link to this video. However you do it, do it. I’m counting on you. There’s a link in the YouTube “More Info” section to a flyer. It’s perfect for faxing to your representatives in the House or the Senate or for sending them a snail-mail. I want you to do it right now and I want you to send a fax. Do it on Friday.

This is important, I’m counting on you.


Read the bill to audit the Fed H.R. 1207 here.

Check if your representative already supports H.R. 1207. If not, contact him or her every Friday by fax, email and/or phone.

Here’s the flyer mentioned in the video (pdf):

Audit the Fed!

Here’s a sample letter you can use:

Dear Representative,

Please co-sponsor and/or support H.R.1207, an effort to audit the Federal Reserve.

Recently, it has come to light that there is little to no accountability to the people on the part of the Federal Reserve. While the citizens of this country are required by law to give an accounting of every penny they come in contact with, the Federal Reserve has never been held to the same standard. During this time of extreme economic crisis, the people deserve an accounting of where our money is going.

Currently there are 46 co-sponsors for this legislation, and it is enjoying bi-partisan support. Your efforts in supporting this important legislation would go a long way in proving to your constituents that you not only hold the Federal Reserve to the same standard as you do your constituents, but it would also show that you believe in transparency. Anything less than support for this resolution suggests that you are in favor of secrecy and a lack of accountability to the people who pay the bills. We pay the tab; we have a right to know where our money is going.

Unlike recent bills that you voted in favor of that had hundreds of pages and just a few hours to read, this bill can be read in under 5 minutes. I encourage you to take the time to read it, and then move to support it.

Thank you in advance for your attention on this important legislation. I have every expectation that you will do right by your constituents and support this measure.


Look up the fax number or direct phone number of your representative here.

    You see see our Res Bank is owned by the Govt but parliament cannot dictate interest rates.Instead of Govt members on it’s board there are mostly captains of industry and also reps from social security etc.By owning our currency ,we can reduce our taxes.

    • Sean

      What?? the whole idea behind austrian economics and what ron paul is talking about is that central economic planning does not work. It creates business cycles. We’re not trying to set up a new form of central economic planning, we’re trying to get rid of it. THe whole idea is not to have anyone “owning” our currency. Its supposed to be controlled by individual banks.


  • Sean

    thats so funny. you dont know a damn thing about the roll of government if you think we should socialize our banks.. Who do you think is going to pay for that? interest rates or our tax rates.. what do you think the government would do if m1 was low? inflate the dollar.. Your such an idiot, you can think all you want, but you obviously don’t know anything about either money or government policies..

    • Sean

      Ron paul for sure does not want to socialize banks. He wants to get rid of the central bank, but not give the government 2wice as much power. What makes you think the government would do a better job at managing money, or persue different policies?

  • Ross

    Sean “Isn’t that socialism?” What we have now is a totalitarian,parisitic monetary system that no one can audit.If govt has the power to issue currency with proper regulation,they can then be voted from power if they stuff up.People will pay less taxes,you can have smaller govt than now hence far less socialism.
    Money should belong to the people since they are the real producers!No non productive banks should own a curreny who merely function as gates keepers whom we pay rent to in the form of interest.

    It works well here in Australian Sean.We have the best perfroming banks on the planet.What we need to do is to back our currency by something of value and reduce our debt.

    Currently the US Fed takes $50 billion in profits each year and gives $30 billion the Govt.They keep $20 billion for doing nothing as well as creating inflationary money.It is not theirs to take or give back.It represents the increase in GDP of the people.It is theft Sean.

    Sean,I think I know more about your country than you do.

    • Sean

      so your for socialism? have you ever read the constitution, or the federalist papers, or common sense?

  • Ross

    Now Ron,if you you want some ideas for slogans etc,just consult me, since in the interest of our common humanity,they will be free.

    How about some signs,”Fed Up with Wankers”
    ” Stop Monetary Masturbation”
    Be creative and not angry,since even the corrupted will be converted by truth in the face of a perverted self destructive philosophy.

  • Ross

    Sean still does not get it.You don’t have to shut down the Fed.All you have to do is follow the Constitution which says that only Congress has the power to issue currency and the Fed can go off and play monopoly money all by itself.

    A sort of monetary masturbation Sean.You should know all about this!

    • Sean

      Isn’t that socialism? Where does it say that congress should issue currency?.. It does say that congress should not allow any currency other than gold or silver, but i don’t think our forefathers predicted us spending 40 billion dollars a month overseas on oil.

      • Sean

        have you even read the constitution? or the federalist papers? or common sense?

  • Michael

    I have written my representative, Steve Austria (R) OH-7 and heard nothing from him. I will be sending off another email, and calling his office Monday morning.

    Could someone clear up the differences between S.513 and S.604, they both sound similar. Thanks.

  • Cheryl A.

    Click on more from this publisher once you have read The Plot to Seize the White House to read The History of Standard Oil Company…

    History repeats itself indeed especially when the criminal is never punished but is rewarded with more wealth.

    Pur these elitist in jail. Their crimes are many but the one that stands out clearly through written history is HIGH TREASON.


    All wars have been fought for the industrialist fascist pigs! Our men and women should never spill a drop of blood on foreign soil. War is a RACKET.

  • Cheryl A.


    Read this censored book. What happened during Roosevelt’s time is and has been happening because of who controls the wealth in this country!

    WE can never go back to the gold standard while this banking cabal is in power. There is a conspiracy indeed and those conspiring are none other than a few wealthy elitist.

    We know who the enemy of humanity is!

    • Sean

      i would say that our economy has grown more than expected and has done quite well since the fed was created in 1913.

      • Nate D

        If you call debt growth, then yes we’ve grown.

        • Sean

          Debt becomes liquidated and turns into principle… So i would call principle growth if you want to be correct.

          • Sean

            I’m sorry, debt becomes liquidated and turns into equity, which is wealth, and growth.

      • Cheryl A.

        Wrong. Explain the great crash of 1929. You tell those people that lived through the Great Depression that. You tell the people that are homeless and unemployed that.

        The banking cabal are in control of our money (debt) supply. They create depression, recessions, inflation, deflation, contraction, expansion, etc. of our money supply.

        It is a private institution that answers to no gov’t…

        • Sean

          I don’t understand your argument. The reason why the great depression got so bad and lasted so long was because there was a gold standard. The money supply contracted 30% and the federal reserve could not step in and do anything.. Are you arguing against credit? because credit was around before the federal reserve.. Please be specific.

          • Sean

            Their were laws that prevented the federal reserve to help expand the suppy of money when it was needed because of the lack of gold reserves. That’s why people who are experts of the great depression say that there wasn’t enough done..
            And i don’t think you understand the point i was trying to make.. Homes, cars, or whatever else you pay with debt turns into value after it gets liquidated. Thats a general understanding.

          • Sean

            I really don’t understand your argument. The reason why the great depression got so bad and lasted so long was because there was a gold standard. The money supply contracted 30% and the federal reserve could not step in and do anything.. Are you arguing against credit? because credit was around before the federal reserve.. Please be specific.

        • sean

          • Cheryl A.

            Wrong again Sean. The Federal Reserve went to a fractional reserve system on its inception in 1913. Sort of like a PYRAMID scheme. The big crash happened in 1929. You do know the meaning of fractional reserve don’t you?

            You do know that these same people in control of our money supply funded both sides of WWII? They helped build up Russia (Communism) while building up Germany (Socialism)… War is a racket!

            This banking cabal smacks of ZIONIST!

          • sean

            Well actually I was correct and yes I know what fractional reserve lending is.

  • Sean

    you all have a better chance of winning the lottery than shutting down the fed. The other 99% of the population wont allow it.

    • I doubt that, we got millions of people now aware of what is going on and people who are armed and armed with the constitution.

      The Fed can’t hide anymore and there is a very good chance to be rid of it, once it is fully exposed.

      Showing everyone what’s under that hood is the road to resolve it.

      • Sean

        Please, theres nothing to hide. The federal reserve has been around for a long time. I think its the young uneducated kids who believes all the conspiracy films are real and try to rebel.. The problem is not some secret society, its central banks in general. If your going to rebel, know the correct reason.. Anyways, the senate wont allow this legislation to pass for the consideration of other countries confidentiality. Thats the whole reason the congress gave the fed this specific power in the first place.

        • Nate D

          This is something for your small brain so maybe you can learn something about the system you support.


          • Sean

            haha. i already know all of this. I don’t support it, Im just telling you how it is and how its going to be whether you like it or not.

          • Sean is an idiot, and there is no confidentiality agreement to not show other countries “central bank sheets.”

            That excuse died a long time ago!


  • Ross

    You can tell the Fed apogolists a mile off.Richard Halls must have shares in the Fed.Actually I’d like to know if the 12 banks of the Fed Res are privately listed companies or do they have share holders? Now this is a really important issue,since if they do have shareholders,this broadens their power base.

    Richard fails to acknowledge that unlike other private companies, the Fed is in a very priviledged position of reaping profits from the community without adding anything to society’s real productive capacity.They just generate money from cyber space and charge people interest for being productive.When your nose is the trough along with all the other pigs,you fail to realise who provided the food.Greed and power become the over riding motivation,which ultimately leads to the destruction of us all.

    History does repeat itself,so study well the two world wars and the Great Depression.

    • The regional Feds are own by the banks in the region. I am not a shareholder of any bank.

  • Linda Bell

    BRAVO!! it’s great reading how so many people really are aware of what is truely going on in this country. I’ve been reading how corrupt the I.R.S. the Federal Reserve and the judicial system is that it blows me away. (actually, the i.r.s.and feds were created to steal from the people to begin with.) Our Founding Father’s told the people to “stay on your toes” because it is sooo easy for corruption to take over and sure enough it started even shortly after the Constitution was written.
    Sovereign Individual is something else Americans do not know. We are the POWER that can do away with the vermin that runs OUR country. We don’t have to wait for the next election to do away with a politician. He or she is doing a crappy job…get rid of them immediately. It could really be simple if people just knew how much power they really have. It says so in OUR Bill of RIGHTS…that’s why government is doing their best to get rid of OUR RIGHTS because we won’t have the power to tell them off (so to speak)until those RIGHTS no longer exist.

    • The first step is realizing we have the power. The second step is having the spine to stand up to these “organizations”. Our country is about to be given away from us, we can not stand idely by and watch that happen with no concience. We must band together. We are bigger in numbers than they are. Can we do it? Yes!, we can! Let’s get organized.

  • Sean

    Here is an interview on ben bernanke. his first one ever. watch this before you judge him..


  • Frankly I am sick beyond the last straw of the two party systematic dictatorship

    Obama’s not the problem, I do believe he’s ultimately good on our freedom side, but regardless of that I know who I always vote for.

    Constitutionalists like Ron Paul and I couldn’t in conscience vote for anything less!

    It’s time the rest of the republicans, the constitutional conservatives come together after watching that nightmare of socialism during the Patriot Act years…..and begin the process of ripping down the two party duopoly, for the sake of all people.

    For Michelle Bachmann, for David Akaka, for like minded conservative democrats and republicans and patriots.

    All united under Ron Paul and the constitution, fighting for independence like we originally did a long time ago!!

    The Federal Reserve, the FRS system is nothing less than a sickening secretive dictatorship of clearly fascist Zionism.

    I am convinced that the Federal Reserve is designed to destroy the conservative ideals our forefathers warned the world about, that the Temple can not be saved, and must be exposed to the light of day.

    H.R. 1207 lights the fires and paves the path of the revolution against Globalization. Lets get this legislation in front of everyone, lets take back our party system, and then lets vote for “REAL CHANGE” in every state at the local level!!!!!

    The Federal Reserve is a private bank which is not accountable to any of us, nor allows itself to be dissected by Congress. Pass the Audit of the Federal Reserve and let us have freedom! Let us find out once and for all what Geithner and the Globalists have done to this country, and understand once and for all, why the Federal Reserve whom owns the media has attempted to legislate morality and bankrupt our nation.

  • I watch these videos, and I just feel ashamed that we let this happen. I mean we basically gave all of our power to choose, and dictate our own lives, and handed it over to a bunch of greedy, selfish, scoudreling trust fund babies. Where’s our sense of dignity that made us the model country of this planet? I for one am tired of struggling for a buck, and when I get my check I have just enough money to be in more debt. The Fed should be audited, why would we even give complete control of coining money to a private company not thinking they wouldn’t just start printing off all the money they needed for whatever they wanted? These bankers have been behind the scenes for centuries, and let me tell you folks, when I say they wan to enslave you that’s exactlt what I mean. I’m not the smartest guy in the world, and politics isn’t my strong suit, but when something is wrong it doesn’t take a rocket scientist to know it’s wrong. AUDIT THOSE LEECHES, IT’S TIME FOR SOME ACCOUNTABILITY.

    • Cheryl A.

      Bravo… Well stated!

  • John

    I don’t know how best to inform Ron Paul, maybe other users will be more able than me to tell him about this major loophole in the program:

    The video explaining it: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=n-arbfLTCtI

    Please watch it, it’s logical and explains how a major economic fraud may take place in future, and inform Ron Paul if you know how. Thank you and let’s hope this is somehow reviewed and avoided.

  • Roger Lent

    Is’nt it time that the american people grow a spine? Our nation behaves like a crack addict. We see the destruction all around us, to the point of losing everything we have, yet we dont have the will power or the cajones to do anything about it. When the destruction hits home, are we suprised that our neighbors and fellow countrymen and women are indiffenent? The me first mentality is comming home to roost. Unfortunatly, like a drug addict, we know this isn’t right, yet we are too scared to make the hard choices that will eventually free us from bondage of this most corrupt government. We built a border “fence” when we needed a mine field. As long as we tolerate corrupt officials to rule our lifes, we deserve what we get, corruption.

    • Cheryl A.

      Well said!

  • Cheryl A.

    By the way the IRS does NOT collect for our federal gov’t. It collects for the debt makers (federal reserve). This is why it was so imp’t for them to dupe you into accepting a social security number. Got to keep track of them slaves.

    By the way the income tax is NOT a tax on income. It is an excise tax. Also, the income tax collection is NOT necessary to run this country. The reason we are in debt is because Congress no longer prints and coins its own money. Thus the creation of debt incurred by the charging of interest (usury). The deficit is necessary to keep the slaves enslaved.

    When the people around the world wake up and realize that they have traded their real wealth which is labor for debt there will be a movement not a revolution. No revolution ever accomplishes anything except another form of government or enslavement like a dictatorship. Revolutions fail because they are organized. What comes out of the organized revolt? More enslavement. The difference between a movement and a revolt is simply the fact that a movement is an awakening and is non-violent.

    The natives are restless. We want answers and we want them NOW!

    Everyone should be mad as hell at the direction this country is heading. What about the public schools that are purposely dumbing down your children? How? Because they no longer teach facts. They are in the business of behavior modification. You now have sicko’s in charge of your kids. And the country wants to know why there have been so many school shootings and violence! Education starts in the home.

    Another thing that should be making people angry is the big pharma companies. When have you ever seen so many pill pushing commercials on TV? These are not cures. These are placebos. Our doctors and nurses are now pill pushers instead of true medical doctors/nurses. Want to know how much they know about nutrition just ask them? You will be surprised that they only take one or two courses in nutrition. All ailments and sicknesses start with what you put in your body and on the largest organ called the skin. How many of you know that aluminum is the first ingredient in your deodorant? And what has this been linked to? Alzheimer’s. Is it no wonder why there have been so many people diagnosed with this disease? How about cooking in aluminum pans or eating vegetables out of aluminum cans? How about the lotions you put on your skin? You do know that it has been proven that sun screen has been linked to so many skin cancers??? What about fatigue? Anyone have this problem of sluggishness? Well, it could be the fluoride in your water supply…

    These bankers, corporations, etc. all need to be held accountable for destroying lives. Both create hardships. Corporations do it by making you sick and with that comes a big fat hospital bill.

    I can go on and on…

    We need common folks to push for Congress to grow a spine and put more laws into effect that hold these morons responsible.

    • Greg S.

      Cheryl A.—- Interested in talking to you more about your knowledge of the Federal Reserve.

    • we the people

      you should really see Alex Jones endgame. it creep ed me the hell out to see what the true purpose of the fed and its owners are up to. i really hope that every one here who talks like a patriot behaves like one as well. i hope that your bark is a big as your bite. these guys are cold calculating monster and will try to stop any one that gets in there way. we have to be as determined if not as well funded as they are. information is the key but action is our cause.

      • Cheryl A.

        United we stand, divided we fall!

      • Gunnerboy78

        i believe you mean you hope our bite is as big as our bark.

        as mine is.

        • Cheryl A.

          Mine too…

  • Cheryl A.

    The Federal Reserve is a private institution. The creation of the Federal Reserve and its collection agency the IRS came into existence in 1913. It all started with the charging of interest on fiat money (debt). We went from money that was backed by gold and silver to a fiat system which is backed by nothing. Each dollar that is printed represents debt.

    They are as federal as Fed Ex. LOL




    • Are you suggesting that a law be passed allowing the congress to audit a private company?

      • I’m not trying to be condescending or anything, but did you really just ask that question? You damn right we should audit a private company who acts as part of our government system, but actually isn’t. That Federal you see in front of Reserve is just a front my friend. Furthermore you damn right we should audit a company who prints our American dollar out of thin air, that’s about to go extinct by the way, and acts like they’re above the law. Greenspan has gone on national television basically saying we are above the law, and you can’t tell us what to do, and now this retard is a presidential advisor? Give me a break. So the answer to your question is yes we should audit a private company, if it’s the non-federal Federal Reserve.

        • we the people

          guys enough debating and more action. if we want to see this country and constitution survive we need to be on track here. we have to inform people of HR 1207. it is imperative that the fed is audited so that people can see the head of the snake. i went to http://www.visi.com/juan/congress/, got the fax number for all the reps in NY and NJ. then sent them the HR 1207 fax form. im going to do this everyday until i see that number of co-sponsors change from 58 to 108. we are this country’s last hope for freedom from this monster that is the fed. and i know that the heads of the fed have their drones infiltrating all of these sites to distract people from the true issue. we have to remain focused on the matter at hand or we will see our beautiful country go to ruins. please do whatever it takes, print out fliers talk to people get them to do the same. email, fax and call every single representative and senator in the USA if you have to. lets flood the halls of the hill with our demands for transparency, there’s no other way. and in the truest sense of the word if their appears here people who are trying to discredit what we are doing just say to those cowards what Samuel Adams would say

          “If ye love wealth greater than liberty, the tranquility of servitude greater than the animating contest for freedom, go home from us in peace. We seek not your counsel, nor your arms. Crouch down and lick the hand that feeds you; May your chains set lightly upon you, and may posterity forget that ye were our countrymen.” –

          — Samuel Adams

      • Cheryl A.

        Yes, laws are passed every day on “private” citizens. Why not on PRIVATE Corporations?

        Are they above the law?

        • Cheryl A.

          Anyone for harsher laws on PRIVATE CORPORATIONS? I sure the heck am. There is unfair advantage when a corporation is allowed to monopolize industries! I call it the way I see it.

          Can the avg. Joe go coin his own money? Then it is a monopoly pure and simple.

          Stop the monopolies NOW. Bring back FAIR TRADE and Competition NOW!!!!!

          Return the power to coin and print money to Congress! If not, harsher laws and penalties for charging USURY! Harsher laws on CREDIT CARD companies too!

          A contract should benefit both parties. If it does not there is NO contract. Push for honesty and integrity!

        • See how far they get with passing a law on taxing the AIG employees.

      • we the people

        your a moron and im sick of assholes like you coming to places like this knowing fully what we are trying to do here. we are trying to restore the republic and we don’t need to answer to the likes of a simpleton like you. only congress shall have the authority to coin money and that’s that you corporate drone. and as a parting gift here are some words from Samuel Adams.

        “If ye love wealth greater than liberty, the tranquility of servitude greater than the animating contest for freedom, go home from us in peace. We seek not your counsel, nor your arms. Crouch down and lick the hand that feeds you; May your chains set lightly upon you, and may posterity forget that ye were our countrymen.”
        — Samuel Adams

  • Why don’t you start by telling the people who owns the FED. It is NY & UK banks. It is a private company – look it up in the business section of the phone book.
