    According to a Psychology Today hit piece written by psychologist John Gartner, people prone to thinking that powerful men might actually get together and plan to maintain and advance their power are borderline psychotics who are a danger to society. In reality, hundreds of years of history has taught us that psychologists routinely aid authoritarian regimes in enforcing tyrannical and inhumane policies while helping them crush political opposition by defining suspicion of authorities as a mental illness.

    The profession of psychology blossoms under tyrannical regimes, as is explored in Ulfried Geuter’s The Professionalization of Psychology in Nazi Germany. Under Hitler’s Third Reich, the relationship between the ruling Nazi thugs and psychologists was close and mutually beneficial.

    “From Nazi Germany, South Africa, Russia and the former Yugoslavia, to Iraq today, psychiatry has been and/or remains a key player. In fact, the marriage between authoritarian government and psychiatry is as old as psychiatry itself,” writes Jan Eastgate, International President, Citizens Commission on Human Rights, “In the 1800s, Germany’s militaristic “Iron Chancellor,” Otto von Bismarck, utilized psychiatry to influence and control whole populations in order to fulfill his dreams of conquest through war.”

    In his book Dangerous Minds: Political Psychiatry in China Today and Its Origins in the Mao Era, praised as “eloquent and convincing” in a New York Times Review of Books piece, author Robert Munro exposes how psychiatrists and psychologists continue to be at the forefront of the brutal Communist Chinese system of ascribing mental illnesses to those who express even mildly negative political opinions towards the ruling Party.

    While Psychology Today’s John Gartner cites a single example of a “conspiracy theorist” who voiced support for Alex Jones entering Bohemian Grove armed with guns, and uses it to make the implication that “conspiracy thinking” is a major threat to society, documented history stretching back hundreds of years shows that psychologists, and particularly their tactic of classifying suspicion of authorities and “conspiracy thinking” as a mental illness, have played a key role in preserving the power of dictatorial elites and helping them to carry out inhumane practices while crushing free speech and legitimate political opposition.

    Great news that this week a federal judge ruled that the Fed has to release information under FOIA.
    Of course the Fed will fight this tooth and nail.

    Watch his body language when asked about Goldman Sachs – crossing his legs and laughing. Even as his mouth lies, his body tells the truth. The brain behind those lightless eyes is still a ruthless liar.

    He claims the Fed needs more oversight to prevent future bubbles and future caollapses. The current financial chaos stems from a lack of oversight, he says. Isn’t this the same argument the central planners have been making for years? Don’t they all say they need just a little bit more control of the market, of our lives, before the economy can reach true perfection. Geithner is a bagman. The puppetmasters behind the scenes cannot solve the problem; they can only hold back the tides for a little while longer. They cannot solve the problems because the laws of economics are more powerful than a handful of American, German, and British bankers.

    Mr. Geithner, you may not have caused all this, but you are helping cast the mold of our fate. We will see an end of this, and the things you are doing will cause great suffering in this country, and if there is any justice you will never have a moment’s peace in this world.

    Geithner, what a snake. First he tries to play down his connection with Goldman-Sachs, then goes on to list all the people in his staff, and people he has worked for that are associated with Goldman-Sachs.

    I just want to share my thoughts with the people here.

    This world seems to make less sense every day, i dont understand my purpose here. A lot of the people in the world around me are so angry, but they arent angry at these rich elitists who probably are the cause of a LOT of their problems, the people around me are cowards. Whether its them honking their horn at me when its clear i cant move forward in traffic or staring at me like a weirdo as i jog by, or a million other things. They dont want to even try to take down these rich bastards. Its not that their un-educated, its that they lack intelligence. Im definetly above-average intelligence and im grateful to be. They dont care about solving the problem for everyone, they just care about the quick solution for themselves which is probably so much easier in their minds.

    Why are so many people trying to change effect instead of cause? Its like you are constantly getting stung by bee’s, so instead of using a flame-thrower to kill the bee-hive, you buy a fly swatter to kill bee’s, even though they keep coming to sting you.

    We are being dumbed down on a massive scale, its like i have no family here, their is no WE ARE THE WORLD because everyone seems to just be out for themselves. So many unintelligent, vain, cynical, and hypocritical people now, i will NEVER become like them, ever. I just hope things change one day. I guess this is more me kind of wishing the USA and the people in it could have a bit more warmth and compassion… and intelligence.

    I guess thats all and i hope Ron Paul succeeds but i doubt he will. Lets face it, do you really think 1 texas congressman and less then 1% of our dumbed down population can take down the FED…. the creator of money? All they would have to do is pass out 1 thousand dollars to 1 million people to support NOT auditing the fed, their’s democracy at its best for you!!!

    Im glad i found out about Ron Paul also because i believe it really helped cure the apathy i feel sometimes. anyway hope i didnt sound too weird and thanks for hearing me out everyone, bye.

    The real US unemployment rate is 16 percent if persons who have dropped out of the labor pool and those working less than they would like are counted, a Federal Reserve official said Wednesday.
    “If one considers the people who would like a job but have stopped looking — so-called discouraged workers — and those who are working fewer hours than they want, the unemployment rate would move from the official 9.4 percent to 16 percent, said Atlanta Fed chief Dennis Lockhart.

    I strongly believe we need a federal reserve audit. The recent stock market action suggests to me the federal reserve is intervening in a free and open market. I believe the biggest beneficiary of this TRILLION DOLLAR stock market move in a couple of weeks was Goldman Sachs. Goldman Sachs sells derivatives in our equity markets its apparent that Goldman Sachs Has Total Control Over our stock market using the unlimited capital available from the federal reserve. I believe Goldman Sachs doesn’t have the best interest of our markets. They are misusing the federal reserve to manipulate the stock market and making huge 100 BILLION DOLLAR profits THIS IS ILLEGAL people expect our government to obey the laws just like citizen. Also this manipulation without regards for cost continues to put our government and the people more and more in debt

    JUST THE FACT GOLDMAN SACHS HAS HAD SUCH IMPOSSIBLE SUCCESS AT TRADING IS ALL THE PROOF OUR GOVERNMENT NEEDS TO KNOW TO PROVE MANIPULATION!!!!!!

    AUDIT THE FEDERAL RESERVE

    I would say that is not right. Who is this guy to say what we need and don’t need. Most don’t know anything about this, I in turn have done my homework and know that full disclosure and optimum transparency is necessary to run any free-market operation. Not auditing the FED is a lack of transparency, other than that, it simply needs to be done. It has never been done. The centennial is coming for the so-called Reserve, so I think it is about high time we do a full audit, starting with year 1913 to the present second. WE THE PEOPLE DEMAND A FULL DISCLOSURE OF ACCOUNTS FOREIGN AND DOMESTIC FROM CONCEPTION TO PRESENT. It is nothing short of which they demand from us.

    “The United States is not at present an over-populated country. If, however, the population continues to increase at the present rate (which is higher than that of India’s increase, though happily a good deal lower than the rate now current in Mexico or Guatemala), the problem of numbers in relation to available resources might well become troublesome by the beginning of the twenty-first century. For the moment over population is not a direct threat to the personal free dom of Americans. It remains, however, an indirect threat, a menace at one to remove. If over-population should drive the underdeveloped countries into totali­tarianism, and if these new dictatorships should ally themselves with Russia, then the military position of the United States would become less secure and the preparations for defense and retaliation would have to be intensified. But liberty, as we all know, cannot flour ish in a country that is permanently on a war footing, or even a near-war footing. Permanent crisis justifies permanent control of everybody and everything by the agencies of the central government. And permanent crisis is what we have to expect in a world in which over-population is producing a state of things, in which dictatorship under Communist auspices becomes almost inevitable.”

        Yes Matt your right about his former position but you know? who is electing who ? A secretary treasurer would be terminated from the position under the coinage act of 1792 if any money , coins were created with a shortage of gold or silver composite metals within the department of weights and measures that accounted for the percentage formula in mixture. Their working for the fed.reserve corp.and not the treasury. (ref.Wikipedia coin act of 1792) http://endthefed-dlandry.blogspot.com/ http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Coinage_Act_of_1792

    Geithner is a moron. Auditing the Fed will not make the Fed any more or less independent then it already is. There will still be a Board of Governors with limitations on how many can be from the same political party, the Fed Open Market Committee will still be able to establish interest rates outside of congressional control. But since the Fed Open Market Committee reports are open to the public, why not all the Fed’s operations? If the Fed is unwillingly to publicize its actions, perhaps that is because it knows its actions are unethical. And if publicly-traded companies are required to disclose their actions in annual and current reports, why shouldn’t the Fed be required to disclose their actions?

    AUDIT THE FED!!! It must happen and I am sure the truth will be more fascinating than any fiction. I am beginning to think the that there is a huge ponzi scheme in operation. If the FED has nothing to hide it should be audited and hopefully this will spark audits of other central banks. I have always wondered how some individuals and certain organisations mange to raise staggering sums of capital and then embark on massive business expansion programmes which benefit a few key shareholders?? I think the penny is dropping.

    I cannot believe such a willful lie was said about Dr. Paul. The moment I heard it I cringed. I just watched the Obama deception. That movie is true. Dr. Paul wanting the FED to hold independence is like Obama respecting the true nature of the constitution.

    “how important it is to us to have the Fed independent of politics”

    Sure… that’s why Fed Chairman Ben Bernanke was just reappointed by the President, and why Timothy Geithner left his job as NY Fed President and Vice Chairman of the Federal Open Market to become Treasury Secretary.
