Audit the Federal Reserve

150 Responses



The Federal Reserve is the chief culprit behind the economic crisis. Its unchecked power to create endless amounts of money out of thin air brought us the boom and bust cycle and causes one financial bubble after another. Since the Fed’s creation in 1913 the dollar has lost more than 96% of its value, and by recklessly inflating the money supply the Fed continues to distort interest rates and intentionally erodes the value of the dollar.

For the past 30 years, Congressman Ron Paul has worked tirelessly to bring much-needed transparency and accountability to the secretive bank. And in 2009 and 2010 his unfaltering dedication showed astonishing results: HR 1207, the bill to audit the Federal Reserve, swept the country and made the central bankers shudder at their desks. The bill passed as an amendment both in the House Financial Services Committee and in the House itself. But eventually the most significant portions of the bill were derailed. (Full story here.)

This year, Audit the Fed is back with a vengeance. Reintroduced on 01/26/2011 as HR 459, Ron Paul’s bill to audit the Federal Reserve now has 227 co-sponsors, and the numbers keep growing! HR 459′s companion bill in the Senate, S 202, has already attracted 20 co-sponsors.

This is history in the making, and victory is within reach. Imagine what will happen if HR 459, The Federal Reserve Transparency Act, comes up for vote in Congress! It has real potential to pass — BUT only if we educate and rally the people to support it and get our Congresspeople to put it to vote and pass it.

HR 459 (House)

Dear Representative,

Please co-sponsor and/or support HR 459, 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 227 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.

Sincerely,

S 202 (Senate)

150 responses to “Audit the Federal Reserve”

  1. Robert Karpie

    WAKE Up – “When Ignorance is Ignored, Stupidity is justified!”

    The Federal Reserve is robbing the U.S .taxpayers blind and destroying our Country. In fact, the FED is just like King George III and the international bankers; which is why the American Revolutionary War was fought in the first place?

    “The colonies would gladly have borne the little tax on tea and other matters had it not been that England took away from the colonies their money, which created unemployment and dissatisfaction. The inability of colonists to get power to issue their own money permanently out of the hands of George III and the international bankers was the prime reason for the Revolutionary War.” Ben Franklin

    No! Not any more, not on our watch. It is time to address the culture of corruption that has infected our government. It is time for our voices to be heard. Change is a critical must or else. Yes we have a seriously enormous problem in regards to our National Debt. But, how did we inherit this liability? Who or what caused it? How can we fix what caused it in the first place? That’s what we have to address! Our children are our greatest resource as they are our future but, if we don’t act now; they won’t have any future worth pursuing. This book deals with historical facts that they don’t teach you in school. Imagine that? Ironically, we believe what we are taught in school to be true, including history? Realistically, what we come to believe is the result of the conditioning from all aspects of society as we know it. But there is more to life as we know it, there is much more to learn; more than we can comprehend at this time. Sometimes, it takes a Leap of Faith to TRUST in the Grace of God. Alas, “You of little faith, why did you doubt?” Never underestimate the element of ‘SURPRISE’.

    WAKE Up – “When Ignorance is Ignored, Stupidity is justified!”

    The Federal Reserve is robbing the U.S .taxpayers blind and destroying our Country. In fact, the FED is just like King George III and the international bankers; which is why the American Revolutionary War was fought in the first place?

    “The colonies would gladly have borne the little tax on tea and other matters had it not been that England took away from the colonies their money, which created unemployment and dissatisfaction. The inability of colonists to get power to issue their own money permanently out of the hands of George III and the international bankers was the prime reason for the Revolutionary War.” Ben Franklin

    No! Not any more, not on our watch. It is time to address the culture of corruption that has infected our government. It is time for our voices to be heard. Change is a critical must or else. Yes we have a seriously enormous problem in regards to our National Debt. But, how did we inherit this liability? Who or what caused it? How can we fix what caused it in the first place? That’s what we have to address! Our children are our greatest resource as they are our future but, if we don’t act now; they won’t have any future worth pursuing. This book deals with historical facts that they don’t teach you in school. Imagine that? Ironically, we believe what we are taught in school to be true, including history? Realistically, what we come to believe is the result of the conditioning from all aspects of society as we know it. But there is more to life as we know it, there is much more to learn; more than we can comprehend at this time. Sometimes, it takes a Leap of Faith to TRUST in the Grace of God. Alas, “You of little faith, why did you doubt?” Never underestimate the element of ‘SURPRISE’. Check it out at: http://outskirtspress.com/B4HEART2/

    “Bag-in-bottle systems are not as common, and are used more for speciality products that possess exceptional barrier needs or require something other than a cylindrical or oval shape. Printers that have this technology are generally the fastest and very easy to use than most technologies available in the market today. These are just a few of the myriad of changes that the evolution of digital technology has wrought on the photography industry.

    The confirmation vote on Janet Yellen to succeed Ben Bernanke has been delayed until after the New Year.

    Her nomination has placed the Fed’s destructive policies in the spotlight like never before.

    So I’ve launched the December 31 “Audit the Fed” Money Bomb in order to mobilize millions of Americans to turn up the heat on the Senate to vote on Audit the Fed.

    Your generous contribution will help me marshall outraged Americans through email, social media and online ads to gin up a tsunami of grassroots outrage.

    Thank you for your contribution,

    Senator Rand Paul : http://www.rand-2016.com/atfdecmb4.aspx?pid=1228f

    The Federal Reserve Act was questionably passed in 1913 and along with it the Internal Revenue Law (IRS) was included in the same bill. The Income Tax Law was passed in the same bill and was included to pay the Federal Reserve interest for loaning us our own money.

    I know this sounds screwy but it really is the honest truth.

    During the Great Depression of 1929 there was no Glass–Steagall Act in force and congress always thought the bankers caused the Last depression because they could use the depositors saving account to gamble on the stock market. So, in 1933 they passed the Glass–Steagall Act.

    The Glass–Steagall Act was a law enacted by congress in 1933 as a safe guard to protect the American people’s bank deposit accounts by placing a wall between all banks and Stock Brokers, forbidding the banks from investing in the stock market or use bank money to buy or sell any types of stock market derivatives.

    First, let me tell you how the Federal Reserve works.

    1) The Federal Reserve sells the bonds at an open auction.

    2) The Federal Reserve Banks around the country buys up most of the Bonds at an open auction.

    3) The Treasury Dept. spends all the newly printed bond money.

    4) Then at some point in the future all the new bond money will end up as deposits in some ones Bank Account.

    5) The Federal Reserve gives all the banks nine dollars for every newly deposited one dollar as a GIFT.

    The Federal Reserve is a sweetheart monetary system that was setup to supply the Federal Government with an unlimited amount of money it wants to spend without requiring the Federal Government to increase Taxes on the people.

    When the Federal Government needs money it just raises the Debt limit. Then the Federal Reserve prints up Bonds and sells them at the bond auction.

    They never have to worry about not selling the bonds because the Federal Reserve Banks will step in and buy up all the unsold bonds. Just to collect the bond Dividend.

    Now at some point in time in the future all of this newly printed money will be deposited in one of the Federal Reserve Banks in the system. The Federal Reserve System uses what is called a “Fractional Reserve Banking System”.

    This means that Banks are allowed to loan or spend Nine Extra Dollars for every one dollar held in deposit. This extra nine dollars is given to the banks not as a LOAN but as a GIFT and requires no repayment. They can use this money to make loans, to buy Federal Bonds and invest in the stock market or use bank money to buy or sell any types of stock market derivatives they chose.

    That means for every $1 trillion dollars the Federal Government spends in Deficit Spending the Federal Reserve (a privately own central Bank owned by non-Americans) will end up printing an extra $10 Trillion Dollars of newly printed money to put in its own pocket, plus charging the American People interest on the original $1 Trillion dollar loan to the Federal Government. Of course we the American People are required to pay the Federal Reserve Interest on this newly printed money from Income Taxes being withheld (IRS).

    Then as if the American people were not being screwed enough by this private banking cartel called the Federal Reserve during the last 100 years. Then in 1997 Bill Clinton President and both the Democrat and Republican Congress repealed the Glass–Steagall Act. This allowed the International Bankers to gamble with the American people’s bank deposit accounts. This was the real cause of the Great Depression in 1929 and also again with the 2008 Financial Crises that brought down America help put us in this Second Depression in 2008.

    American can never recover as long as we have a Private Federal Reserve Central Bank and we allow the International Bankers gamble with the American peoples Bank Deposit Accounts.

    The Federal Reserve is printing up $85 billion dollars every month to buy back Fake American National Debt Bonds. This is not inflationary in its self because they are not increasing the money supply. They are just trading newly printed dollars for the same dollar value of bonds so the money supply is not being changed.

    The Federal Reserve is purchasing these bonds back from the Large International Banks who hold a large portion of the Fake American National Debt. The Federal Reserve prints new money to buy back this FAKE National Debt back from its Branch Banks.

    But, here is where the American People get a real Screwing. Whenever newly printed money is being held on deposited in bank. Under the laws that govern the Federal Reserve all banks use what is Called the “Fractional Reserve Banking System”.

    This system allows all banks to loan or spend up to 10 times the amount of all dollars held on deposit in all banks (this is the same thing as counterfeiting). This is not a loan to the banks, but a gift. These Banks are not required to pay any of this money back.

    When the Federal Government allows all these banks to counterfeit our money like this, they cause inflationary, which is actually a tax laid on the people because it makes everyone’s money worth less every year after year. This is the main cause of our yearly Inflation.

    In Fact since the Federal Reserve Act was passed in 1913 the American dollar has decreased in value by about 97% because of this Privately Owned Central Banking Cartel System.

    During the last 100 years the American people have paid Trillions of Dollars of Interest to the Federal Reserve Banking System (privately owned Banking System owned solely by International Banking Cartel). Plus because of the “Fraction Reserve Banking System” they was allowed to STEAL based on our Fake National Debt owed: $17 Trillion times 10 = $170 trillion Dollars over the last 100 years.

    Thomas Jefferson Quotation (1776):

    “If the American people ever allow private banks to control the issue of their currency, first by inflation, then by deflation, the banks and corporations that will grow up around them will deprive the people of all property until their children wake up homeless on the continent their Fathers conquered.”

    This is what Thomas Jefferson warned us about 237 years ago, so ignorance is no excuse and all of these Federal Politicians should be put on trial for Treason by the American Peoples court.

    America is in big, big trouble and here is what I would do to solve everything:

    1) I would reestablish the Glass–Steagall Act.

    2) I would close down the Private Federal Reserve Central Bank.

    3) I would cancell all the United States Fake National Debt Bonds held by the Federal Reserve and all their Branch Banks.

    4) I would close down the Internal Revenue Service Dept because this is just a collection arm of the Federal Reserve to pay Interest on a Fake National Debt which I will payoff the same way it was created.

    5) I would require all the banks to drop “Fractional Reserve Banking” and go to “100% Reverse Banking”.

    6) I would put the United States Treasury Dept is charge of the creating of all money coined or printed Dollars as stated in the United States Constitution.

    7) I would tell the US Treasury to print up enough dollars and buy back our entire National Debt (which is interest bearing Bonds). This would put us totally out of Debt and not be required to pay nearly $400 Billion Dollars interest annually on a FAKE National Debt. The Social Security System will now have $2.6 trillion dollars cash in a private bank account.

    8) I would pass an Amendment to the United States Constitution that states ”anyone who tries to setup a Private Central Banking System in the United States will put on trial for Treason and THEN Executed”. This would eliminate the incentive to assassinate or kill anyone like they did to JFK in 1963, to install or keep a Private Central Bank System in the USA.

    9) I would pull out of NAFTA and the WTO. By ending NAFTA and the WTO it would automatically create well over 13.86 million Jobs almost overnight.

    10) I would repeal the Anchor Baby law back to its inception.

    11) I would give all illegal aliens one week to go back where they came from or round them up and put them in Sheriff Joe Arpaio desert prison Camp or these FEMA Concentration camps built to house the real American Citizens.

    SO MOTE IT BE..

    Ron Paul is a real hero. Like Robin Hood, he is helping the poor. Unlike Robin Hood, he is also helping the rich. In short, he is helping everybody. Except the evil government.

    Forget the audit and send them all to jail pending the death penalty. Make sure the jail is in Nevada on the most radio active desert sand there is. Then give their money back to the people and create an independant currency never ever to be handled by any Jew any where ever & take back the gold and silver as well.
    If your automatically thinking anti semite than you are not privy to even be reading this. Am I against Jewish Israel every body should be as well as the corrupt UN.

    It really should be routed out as President Andrew Jackson declared! An audit would be revealing as a first step. Eye opening for sure…

    In 1835, President Andrew Jackson declared his disdain for the international bankers: “You are a den of vipers. I intend to rout you out, and by the Eternal God I will rout you out. If the people only understood the rank injustice of our money and banking system, there would be a revolution before morning.”

    Yes, I support those two bills. Printing more paper than products and services produced is like stealing from everyone, especially, the poor.

    No amnesty, please. All illegals should leave at once.
    Abolish the 1965 immigration law signed by Johnson. That
    was an aberration. This is a White Christian Nation.
    Minorities from Third World nations do not belong or fit
    in the US. One hundred million non-Whites is an abomination.

    I voted for Mitt Romney because he is better than incompetent Obama who was never qualified to be president, never… And of course, he is doing a lousy job. He had no business leading Whites. The Bush, too, were bad presidents, so, I voted Libertarian. If I can help the Libertarians here on Hilton Head Island let me know. Kind regard, Alexander (843) 227-2695.
    P.s. Pat Buchanan is correct. His book “Suicide of a Super Power is excellent.
