    There is absolutely NO reason to hide anything from the people nor the government. Federal Reserve is a fraud. Audit the Fed.

    "In the absence of the gold standard, there is no way to protect savings from confiscation through inflation. There is no safe store of value. If there were, the government would have to make its holding illegal, as was done in the case of gold. If everyone decided, for example, to convert all his bank deposits to silver or copper or any other good, and thereafter declined to accept checks as payment for goods, bank deposits would lose their purchasing power and government-created bank credit would be worthless as a claim on goods. The financial policy of the welfare state requires that there be no way for the owners of wealth to protect themselves." -- Alan Greenspan

    "This morning on my radio show, I was ranting and raving, Congressman Paul, about what happened in the House yesterday. Did the leadership yet again spring another thousand-plus page bill on members of the House and did they yet again without reading it, vote for it and does it yet again do the unthinkable, which is to raise taxes on employers in a time of recession?"

    I have attempted to find this Resolution, however, I wasn't able to find it. Can anyone find the bill?

    Niiiiice, you woke up early today!

    The fed uses threats. That's not a question.
    The rate does need to go up, naturally.
    Despite your tantrum, inflation will be unavoidable.

    I love it when you use that conspiracy word.
    One problem, this is not a secret.

    Good to see you so motivated in your crusade to save us.

      "The fed uses threats. That’s not a question.
      The rate does need to go up, naturally."

      If Kohn is speculating treasury borrowing rates might increase due to rating agency perception should monetary policy become politicized, and 'naturally' 'the rate does need to go up' you say, why would Napolitano say this is a threat?

      I just want to understand, I thank you in advance for your guidance.

      Regards,

      Matt

          It's not federal and there's no reserve. It's a private counterfeiting monopoly.

    "The Federal Reserve is now threatening the American people with higher interest rates if Congress continues to attempt to expose its private, super-secret, and unregulated methods."

    Where did this guy get a 'higher interest rate threat' from? See the last statement from the FOMC:

    "The Committee will maintain the target range for the federal funds rate at 0 to 1/4 percent and continues to anticipate that economic conditions are likely to warrant exceptionally low levels of the federal funds rate for an extended period."

    "Extended period"...

    Besides that inaccuracy, RP supporters chide the Fed for leaving rates at 1% a few years ago, NOW THAT RATES ARE AT ZERO, INCREASING THEM CONSTITUTES A 'THREAT'? aahahhaha, sooo umm, what are they supposed to do, LOWER RATES BELOW ZERO?!? LEAVE RATES AT ZERO?

    So despite the fact he is making sh up and NO THREAT HAS BEEN MADE, RP/Schiff supporters worry about 'Weimar-like inflation' and this genius is worried about the Fed increasing rates?

    Gawd, apparently he doesn't worry about insulting his audience's intelligence or worry about being a hyprocrite, it does take a backseat to conspiracies and the requirement of feeling persecuted I guess...

      It's not even the issue of interest rates, its an issue of the corrupted system and the behind the scenes fraud that takes place. It doesn't take a lot to come to this blog and flame at the congressman Ron Paul and his 'inaccuracies'. However, you should know that you're just an ignorant fool who has no interest in benefiting the people. Instead, just a nerd sitting behind his computer screen criticizing Congressman Ron Paul, thinking you're proving some kind of point. Congressman Ron Paul is doing an excellent job, he's a smart and a wise person, and YOU coming here and posting this SH on his blog (which is completely irrelevant to the big idea of this whole thing) doesn't make you look like a hero. Go criticize someone else, no one gives a SH about your opinion.

        But if it is not "even the issue of interest rates" then why is the basis of the rant "The Federal Reserve is now threatening the American people with higher interest rates"? The Fed is not, how foolish it sounds is my point!

        "An association of men who will not quarrel with one another is a thing which has never yet existed, from the greatest confederacy of nations down to a town meeting or a vestry."
        - Thomas Jefferson

        Maybe you should just sit around in a little bubble and agree with each other, that is how you become galvanized for an intellectual revolution... Yeah, right.

          Nevertheless, it's clear that the Federal Reserve is a corrupted system, and you have got to be a fool to say "leave it as be".

          "Maybe you should just sit around in a little bubble and agree with each other..."

          Isn't that exactly what everyone has been doing regarding the Federal Reserve since 1913?
