Though the Federal Reserve policy harms the average American, it benefits those in a position to take advantage of the cycles in monetary policy. The main beneficiaries are those who receive access to artificially inflated money and/or credit before the inflationary effects of the policy impact the entire economy. Federal Reserve policies also benefit big spending politicians who use the inflated currency created by the Fed to hide the true costs of the welfare-warfare state. It is time for Congress to put the interests of the American people ahead of the special interests and their own appetite for big government.
Abolishing the Federal Reserve will allow Congress to reassert its constitutional authority over monetary policy. The United States Constitution grants to Congress the authority to coin money and regulate the value of the currency. The Constitution does not give Congress the authority to delegate control over monetary policy to a central bank.
Furthermore, the Constitution certainly does not empower the federal government to erode the American standard of living via an inflationary monetary policy”.
Is it possible to replace a private banking cartel as the issuer of money? Career politicians spend trillions of Federal Reserve Notes that accrue interest payments upon the very creation of money. In this political environment, can this tribute payable to the central bank, be eliminated?
Listen to an NPR radio “All Things Considered“, and compare the fairy tale viewpoint of the role and function of the Federal Reserve by NPR to the rational and fiscally sound solutions that Congressman Paul presents. The apologists for the central banking swindle are “Tools” not of capital but of elite’s banksters that hold hostage an entire economy. Business no longer has the effective ability to overcome the excessive burden of unnecessary systemic interest. This is the inevitable consequence of a debt pyramid, when governments are required to pay tribute on money created by an accounting addition. It is sad that self-professed intellectuals are so ignorant of the functions and ultimate purpose of the Federal Reserve.
Viewing Ron Paul 0wnz the Federal Reserve and on Dylan Ratigan Jan 6 2011 provides valuable background and a hint of what may be possible. Expectations need to be realistic. While the dam is buckling and a flood is poised to wipe out the valley, only a perspective from high ground can attempt to ease the pain, which is inevitable. Paul is playing down the immediate prospects of replacing the Fed, not because he lost his nerve, but because of the squishy, all things considered mentality, that permeates the society. In order to right the ship of state, the bailing needs to start with stopping the bail outs.
Such measures are pale when placed in context with the real power that rules both the money centers and the political suites. Remember your history before you risk its repeat . . .
The high office of the President has been used to foment a plot to destroy the American’s freedom and before I leave office, I must inform the citizens of this plight. — President John Fitzgerald Kennedy – In a speech made to Columbia University on Nov. 12, 1963, ten days before his assassination!
Challenging the Central Bank stands as a risky venture and surviving not always guaranteed. The following is from President John F. Kennedy, The Federal Reserve And Executive Order 11110.
Section 1. Executive Order No. 10289 of September 19, 1951, as amended, is hereby further amended-
By adding at the end of paragraph 1 thereof the following subparagraph (j):
(j) The authority vested in the President by paragraph (b) of section 43 of the Act of May 12,1933, as amended (31 U.S.C.821(b)), to issue silver certificates against any silver bullion, silver, or standard silver dollars in the Treasury not then held for redemption of any outstanding silver certificates, to prescribe the denomination of such silver certificates, and to coin standard silver dollars and subsidiary silver currency for their redemption
By revoking subparagraphs (b) and (c) of paragraph 2 thereof.
Sec. 2. The amendments made by this Order shall not affect any act done, or any right accruing or accrued or any suit or proceeding had or commenced in any civil or criminal cause prior to the date of this Order but all such liabilities shall continue and may be enforced as if said amendments had not been made.
John F. Kennedy The White House, June 4, 1963.
Just coincidental or is there a direct message when one seeks to remove the gravy train from the inside circle of the real conspirators? Note that devoted followers of Ron Paul need to recognize that one man standing alone needs protection. The best way to secure that a serious audit of the Federal Reserve will take place is to coordinate among all factions and ideologies the imperative requirement that the Central Bank is accountable to the People. An audit is not nearly the resolution to replace the Fed, but it can be the starting point to invoke righteous outrage of the populace that might spread to the newly elected representatives on the Hill.
The Financial Stability Act establishes the Financial Stability Oversight Council, which will have the responsibility to promote market discipline, coordinate with other regulators to identify and respond to threats to financial stability, and resolve gaps in regulation.
The council will have the authority to place a systemically important financial institution under the supervision of the Federal Reserve. Nonbank institutions may be required to establish an intermediate holding company to be regulated by the Federal Reserve and may be required to divest holdings. The Federal Reserve, in consultation with the council, will tighten prudential standards for the large, interconnected BHCs and financial institutions it supervises. These firms will undergo annual stress tests and will be subject to credit exposure limits. Conferees added a House-passed provision that will require such institutions to maintain a leverage ratio of 15 to 1.
Just imagine expanding the Fed to regulate banking when the Federal Reserve should be under the microscope as the most vicious criminal syndicate of all time. When the Central Bank buys government bonds that must pay interest by the Treasury, this rigged game of extortion is out of control. “Now with holdings of $821.1 billion, the Fed is officially the second largest holder of U.S. Treasury’s, next to China and is just $25 billion away from being the Treasury’s largest creditor”.
