This Thursday, the Senate voted to reject Rand Paul’s proposal to audit the Federal Reserve. The bill needed 60 votes to pass but was rejected by a narrow margin of 53-44.

“We’ve had a lot of Democrats who claim that they’re concerned about big banks and big banks controlling things and a revolving door between Wall Street and big banks and the Federal Reserve. We’ll see if any of those loud voices — Bernie Sanders, Elizabeth Warren — are they loud voices that really are for more oversight of the banking system?” Paul said.

Sanders was actually one of the senators who voted for the bill, while Warren was one of the senators who voted against it. Sanders had previously voted against a bill to audit the Federal Reserve several years ago despite showing vocal support for the bill at the time.

“Requiring the Government Accountability Office to conduct a full and independent audit of the Fed each and every year, would be an important step towards making the Federal Reserve a more democratic institution that is responsive to the needs of ordinary Americans rather than the billionaires on Wall Street,” Sanders said in a statement.

According to the Hill, last year the White House called an audit of the Federal Reserve “dangerous.”

“What that bill is about is about Congress supplanting its judgment as to what monetary policy should be. Congress shouldn’t be telling the Fed what to do with monetary policy,” a White House Spokesperson said in a statement.

Many people believe that the Federal Reserve is an organization that operates as a public service, there are not many out there who realize that this is a for-profit business.

Of course, there is nothing wrong with providing a service and turning a profit, but there is something wrong with using the government to monopolize a vital aspect of society, forcing the whole society to use a particular service whether they like to or not.

It turns out that The Federal Reserve makes billions per year through this coercive monopoly, and this much activists and researchers have known for a long time.  However, until now there has been very little hard evidence or sources to reference, which tell us exactly how much money they really do make.  Recently, some numbers were revealed that can at least shed some light on a portion of their income, and these preliminary figures amount to at least $90 Billion per year. reported that:

While leaders in Washington stare down the fiscal cliff, let’s not forget the fiscal fact that brought us to the edge: The annual U.S. government deficit of more than a trillion dollars.  But through it all, one government-related entity has been hauling in record surpluses. New data capture the scope of profits at the U.S. Federal Reserve, estimated to be $90 billion this year.

“The last five or six years their profits have roughly tripled,” says Allan Sloan, senior editor-at-large at Fortune Magazine.

According to Sloan, the Federal Reserve owes its success to its practice of buying securities with newly printed money.

“If you go out and buy $2 or $3 trillion of securities that pay interest and you don’t have to pay any interest on the money used to buy the securities, you make a lot of money,” says Sloan.

  1. Disappointing. No reason NOT to audit the “Fed”…

  2. Congress SHOULD be telling the illegal, unconstitutional, so-called ‘Federal’ Reserve what to do; “GET OUT OF THE USA”!

  3. If they have nothing to HIDE, why are they afraid of an audit????

    • What criminal operation would want someone taking a cloe look?

      Like ‘auditing’ Fort Knox. What? 50 years ago? Senators shown ONE BRICK – but couldn’t get closer than 50′ or so to a ‘pile of gold’?

      “Can we bleat when we see the shiny metal?”

    • ….because $$$ is just an ‘agreement’ between Banksters & does NOT exist!… but in the minds of the ‘banksters’ & the ‘suckers’….$$$ is a Grand Illusion…We’ve been hoodwinked…just wait till the imaginary Babylonian Money Majik of ‘Derivative’s’ (a made-up financial product) brings the CRASH…then say Hello to the NWO.

  4. FIRE the SCUM mr. TRUMP can repair our nation and it’s financial BLACK HOLE better than anybody .

  5. It’s been over a Century since this private concern was entrusted with safeguarding OUR gold, and tasked with printing currency against it.
    Now, a LOOONG overdue audit has finally gained momentum.
    What possible (credible) argument could our ‘representation’ lodge in objection?

    Truth is, the gold has been absconded with by the same private concerns that have highjacked our Country and stole TRILLIONS afforded them through their takeover.

  6. These are the gold collar scum that pull the potus puppet strings – ENDtheFED and there will be a thousand years of peace. They (the unfederal b.s banks) have stolen from the U.S. and should be replaced w/ a more humane system of non usury and no taxes.
    suggested reading – End the Fed – libertarian Ron Paul
    ‘Creature of Jekyll Island’ – G.Edward Griffin.
    ‘Hope and Tragedy’ – Quigly

    BTW: internet money is a wet dream of these sociopaths – no paper money – just tracks of all of your and mine lief long transactions, purchase something unusual and bang they will pull your credit and send the thug police after you. Living in the 21st century will be a nightmare if they are allowed to stay on the agenda 2030 path.

  7. So why did Cruz think it was not important enough to vote on this bill?
