Audit The Fed Hall Of Shame -- 114 House Members Co-Sponsor HR 1207, Then Vote Against It

Video:  Ron Paul discusses the future of 'Audit the Fed' -- July 1, 2010


Guest post submitted by Sagebrush.


Democracy as defined:

1 -- government by the people; especially : rule of the majority b : a government in which the supreme power is vested in the people and exercised by them directly or indirectly through a system of representation usually involving periodically held free elections

2 -- a political unit that has a democratic government

3 -- capitalized : the principles and policies of the Democratic party in the United States <from emancipation Republicanism to New Deal Democracy — C. M. Roberts>

4 -- the common people especially when constituting the source of political authority

5 -- the absence of hereditary or arbitrary class distinctions or privileges


I have heard this word applied to the country I live in all my life.  I was taught and have always believed that honesty, truth, and rule of law were a big part of what makes a democracy work.  And that honesty, truth, rule of law and justice were a big part of what made the United States of America the greatest country on earth.  I know the elite have always had their blood-sucking presence in attendance and they have always been able to buy a Senator or two and sometimes more.  Same with members of the House. 

But it seems in the last ten or fifteen years or so things have changed in a big way.  The big banks on Wall Street have become corrupt gambling houses.  Lying and committing fraud on a massive scale that misleads investors, and cheats the American Taxpayer out trillions of dollars, is now standard operating procedure.  And it's obvious that it could not have been accomplished without the complicity of the Federal Reserve, the regulatory agencies, the U.S. Congress and the Presidential Administrations of both Bush and Obama. 

However, until recently I still believed that truth and justice would prevail and the American people would find out what really caused the collapse of our economy.  A few months ago Ron Paul  introduced HR 1207, a bill that would require a complete audit of the Federal Reserve.  318 Representatives ended up cosponsoring that bill.  They became aware of the fact that 75 to 80 percent of the people polled wanted that audit.  Their staffs got the message by phone, by email and in person.  So just as I was beginning to feel some optimism, along comes:

The Great American Theater Group known as the United States Congress.

  • Act 111 -- Scene 2

Plan of attack:

Ignore important issues like HR 1207 and S 604 and keep them in committee until it becomes apparent the voters are fed up.  Then pass 1207 in the House as a delay tactic.  Have Chris Dodd bring forth the great Consumer Financial Protection Agency.  Behind the scenes turn it into the Great Consumer Financial Destruction Agency.  Then get Bernie Sanders to act like he's really working for the voters and pushing for a similar measure with S-604.  Behind the scene gut the amendment  so it's not worth the paper it's written on.

Other actors will realize they may have lost some of their voter base, so they will sign on when they know it's gutted and it's too late to influence the outcome --  like Harry Reid, Chris Dodd, the Deficit President and some other wise politicians. 

The whole thing is scripted so the American people can be sold another meaningless stack of paper and the politicians can pretend that they are real legislators working for the people.  The end result will be a Consumer Financial Protection Agency that is still under the thumb of Wall Street.  It will allow the big bank gambling casinos to keep rolling along with little oversight. 

And the full audit of the Federal Reserve ends up a virtual  nonstarter. This allows the rich to get richer and leaves the American middle class hanging on to the side of a bottomless pit of debt, with total collapse a distinct possibility in the near future.

I realize now that I may be living in what used to be the greatest country on the planet, though it's new title is the most corrupt country on the planet.  A motion to return the Dodd-Frank Financial Reform bill to committee and add back the original full Fed audit was defeated -- with 114 of the original cosponsors of HR 1207 voting against it

It would appear that donations from the big banks mean more to these people then the voters do.  I hope the voters remember this in November.  I know I will along, with my family and most of my friends.

Vote them out, especially if they're on this list:

The immediate goal of the Bilderberg Group and their associates, many say, is to prolong the global depression for at least another year to two, or more, while they put into place a synthetic Ministry of Global Finance, within or without the UN. This decision was made at the Bilderberg Group's meeting in Greece in 2009, however, the idea was shot down by what the Bilderberg group, labeled, “nationalists” which in Bilderberg language is code for those who know their insidious plans to return the world to its population and the economic controls of the 12th - 16th centuries, renewing the Inquisition and the Crusades, and with a renewed power of the incompetence of blood royalty. The idea? To control an international military force of several millions, a work force of several millions, whose personal life expectancy would be mid-thirties, and which would protect and manufacture all of the luxuries of which the self-procliamed Elitists can dream, and kill off the rest of Humankind.

First they came for the Central Americans, but you people didn't say anything because you're not Central Americans. Then they came for the Iraqis, but you people didn't say anything because you're not Iraqis. Then they came for the Afghanis but you people didn't say anything because you're not Afghanis.

Well, now they've come for YOU American motherfuckers, so shut the fuck up and DIE like everyone else did.

What poetic justice: fucked by your own government. I like it.

WSJ headline: "The Submarine Deals that Helped Sink Greece."

The article reads like a piece of satire. Even as Greece finds itself roiled in the depths of financial crisis, seeking any way possible to claw its way out from under a crushing mountain of debt, the Greek government is spending billions of euros' worth of precious capital on – wait for it – F-16 fighter jets and submarines.

Greece, according to the WSJ, is shelling out €1.5 billion for U.S.-made fighter planes... and another €1 billion or more on submarines from Germany.

No matter how you slice it, €2.5 billion is some serious dough – close to 1% of Greek GDP. And the Greek army (just try to say "Greek army" without snickering) already has eight submarines. Eight.

Now they need two more submarines? Plus fighter jets?

Who do they think is going to attack them? Sparta?

The so called devleoped nations are already under a global banker's dictatorship. The Fed creates the bubbles with 0% interest fiat currency, and government fuels the bubble by stealing taxpayer futures to bailout the banks inflated claims of solvency. The BIS and central banking cartel are running the world--government works for THEM, not US.

Of course the Fed will never be audited - that path lies the way to hopelessness.

Only the STATES can protect the people. Only the States can build an economic firewall between the Federal governemt and the poisoned global economy it's bailing out ...

America Stands On The Precipice Of Total Collapse

Paul Joseph Watson & Alex Jones
Wednesday, July 14, 2010

There can be little doubt that America, along with the west as a whole, is being set up for a total collapse in which life as we know it will be fundamentally altered and rebuilt around a collectivist model managed and controlled by the same criminals who engineered the crisis in the first place.
America has been targeted for an economic, military, and social coup d’état by globalists who know that to get people to accept a new way of life under the heel of the new world order requires that the pillars of everything they knew before are completely pulverized. Freedom, prosperity, and community have no place in a “post-industrial revolution,” and every assault on the living standards of American citizens is designed to infect and wither these ideals.
We are looking at a road warrior style collapse of society within two years if the entities th

Very true. JFK tryed it and was shot dead within 3 days of telling the people whats realy going on. If Ron Paul would get in, im sure he would join JFK.

You can threw "Sticks & Stones" at the Monster all you want, but you can not kill it. Its gotten way to big to ever take down. Time to find a Island, or cave.

The fundraising, the Mama Grizzlies, Bristol's reunion with Levi—it all points to a Palin presidential run in 2012. But she isn't ready—and a loss could be disastrous for the GOP.

Why would this be in Palin's favor to have her daughter's life run through the media machine like the mob makes sausage in NYC? I don't see it, sorry to the wife she is leading you astray.

Obama in Maine...WTF...I was there a few years ago and it is the whitest place on earth, a bunch of berkinstock wearing Ben & Jerry’s vanilla ice cream eating crackers from Beantown. He will fit in fine with all the global warming twits who first went to Portsmouth, NH but didn’t stop there. Dubya must not be in Kennybunkport or I am sure Barry would plan a flyover and maybe even parachute in to enjoy a fish fry with Barbara and family. I am sure Barry would enjoy some battered code and some grilled corn on the cob. Yes, Michelle might want to swim back to D.C. but we all know she couldn’t swim around West Quoddy Head. Maybe the first family will climb Cadillac Mountain and plant the flag of Kenya up there and decry the white man’s foibles. Or, they could go on a boat ride and agitate some whales. Maybe the northern version of Jimmy Buffet, Mr. James Taylor, could join them to serenade Barry and Michelle with his Fire and Rain song. It is all about James’ drug addiction, Barry can reminisce about Columbia and his Pakistani roommate. The first kids will likely want to go on one of Michelle’s secret hikes like when they were in North Carolina. They can sneak up on a bigfoot and have a Hillary in Bosnia press moment. Who knows, maybe they are bringing a few of their new Gitmo pals who have been recently taught how to play Playstation 3 and many other western influenced life skills they so cherish. Aamir and Naseef could help look after the kids. Didn’t Sarah Palin say she could see Maine from her house? Ah Maine, the way life should be. They can shop, Maine is in a desperate bid to sell their abundant carbon credits. The Obama’s can buy a few hundred thousand worth to offset the press corp’s pathetic footprints as they beam at the sheer joy of watching Malia and Sasha throw sticks into the water for Bo to fetch. I’m sorry, did somebody say oil spill?

"America Stands On The Precipice Of Total Collapse"

(from the article);

"The plan for America is to sink the country into chaos so that it can be swallowed whole and consumed as part of the march towards global government. The globalists want to do to America what they have done to the third world, by creating an underclass of impoverished and deprived citizens who are dependent on government for their every need."

HALLELUJAH! FINALLY, U.S. citizens will get a first-hand taste of what it's like to suffer the abuse of Uncle Samuel. Now that the Obankster legalized murdering American citizens, I hope he really starts to USE that privilege extensively.

And we ALL know; sooner or later he WILL.

"She's a little old for you RLR"

True, she's like thirty and I'm only ten. That makes her THREE times my age.

But if she WAITS for me 10 more years, she'll be forty and I'll be 20, making her only TWICE my age. You're so smart, YOU tell me how much longer she would have to wait for me before I CATCH UP with her?
