Federal Reserve Attorneys: Fed Banks Are "Not Agencies" But "Independent Corporations" With "Private Boards of Directors"

Aug 1, 2011 at 2:11 AM | Registered CommenterDailyBail
As the long-time Chairman of the House Banking and Currency Committee (Charles McFadden) said on June 10, 1932:

Some people think that the Federal Reserve Banks are United States Government institutions. They are private monopolies ....

Similarly, the Bank for International Settlements (BIS) - often called the "central banks' central bank", as it coordinates transactions between central banks, and which is the entity determining the level of reserves banks are required to keep worldwide - is itself owned by the central banks of the world.

Silly Perhaps, but talk of the Mercenary army reminds me of "The Expendables Move". The movie plot depicts a front for the CIA who hires a team of Mercenaries to clean up some dirty work for pay. I had heard it mentioned sifting through the news but I really didn't understand for sure what that meant.

So it seems it was done in order to bring soldiers home and hide the fact that money is still being flooded to pay these army's for hire. I would say that it is strange but nothing surprises me anymore. I wonder how many don't really know this is going on or why?

CBO Scores "Bipartisan" Plan At Half Of S&P Required Savings; Only 2% Of Total Cuts To Take Place Before Obama Reelection



It was only a week ago that S&P said anything under $4 trillion in deficit cuts would be an automatic downgrade for the US. So according to the CBO's just released score of the bipartisan budget, the S&P will have to cut its rating of the US in half, since the total budget cuts will be just over 50% of what S&P demanded previously. And here's the funny part: of the $917 billion in known cuts (the other $1.2 billion is factored but not even the CBO has any clue what it will look like), a whopping 2% in cuts will take places before the Obama election. 2%! This whole charade is there only to make sure the president is reelected. Oh, and of course to make sure S&P does not downgrade the US. Which is where we get back to the fun. THE FUN. Because as it turns out, that whole $4 trillion thing.... S&P was only kidding. "It appears that the perception Standard & Poor's seemed to harbour, that the U.S. needed to find a $4trn sized package in order to keep its triple A rating, is unfounded.

Note: They were bullshitting us again!

As I have mentioned in previous posts, the carbon tax in all likelihood be implemented between now or after the 2012 elections for the purpose of balancing budgets. When Markley Waxman failed about a year ago I had a feeling that it will come back in spades. Waxman is now pushing climate change education and we all know that any carbon tax will be used for other purposes but sold to the public as a feel good environmental thing....

It won’t be impossible for the “super committee” to raise revenues. Not by a long shot.



Second the committee could choose to eliminate or change tax expenditures without touching marginal rates and brackets, as long as they were tax expenditures that would otherwise have been permanent fixtures of the tax code. The mortgage interest deduction is one example; the exemption of employer-sponsored health insurance is another.

Third, the committee could come up with a brand new tax added-on to the current tax system. A carbon tax or a VAT would both fit this description.

So there’s actually plenty of accounting room for higher revenues under a current law baseline.
