Meet the New Boss Same as the Old Boss

Federal Reserve Building

By Susan Boskey

Sorry to have to break it to you. The truth is that President-elect Donald Trump is not anti-establishment. Certainly he is the opposite to Hillary Clinton in many ways; he will bring different policies to the country and a new look to the White House. Yet these two are only opposite in the same way day is different from night. Day and night together make up one 24-hour cycle of a calendar day. Similarly, Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton together comprised the whole of the 2016 presidential election.

What I’m trying to say is that, all things considered, these two are just two sides of the very same nothing-really-new coin. How could I imagine such a thing? To date, Hillary Clinton and now president-elect Donald Trump have both shown they are beholden to the Federal Reserve Banking System – the root cause of all things financial in the United States.  I concur with what Nassim Nicholas Taleb, philosopher and author of the book, The Black Swan, once said,

What we need to do is break the financial community’s grip on society.

In all probability, a Donald Trump presidency won’t break that grip. Certainly a Clinton presidency would perish the thought. The Office of the President intersects with, but does not have final authority over, Fed monetary decisions or policies. Yes, a president can elect new members to the Federal Reserve Board of Governors and also the chairperson and vice-chairperson for a new term. And yes, these elections give a president potential influence over the direction of monetary policy, but that’s it.

I like to use the analogy of nesting dolls to further illustrate my view. When considering the man-made systems of the world (scientific, political, educational, monetary, health, etc.) as nesting dolls, the largest/outside doll would represent the monetary system. The political system then fits neatly inside it as the 2nd largest, 2nd most powerful, and so forth. As such, the monetary system asserts an overriding impact on each and all other man-made systems.

In 2007 we learned something about the Fed from Fed Chairman Alan Greenspan.

The Federal Reserve is an independent agency, and that means, basically, that there is no other agency of government which can overrule actions that we take.

“No agency” includes the Office of the President. Yet somehow many believe the political power of a president “trumps” all, including that of the financial sector. (Pun intended.)

We learned more about the Fed the year following Alan Greenspan’s statement. In 2008 Bloomberg LP sued the Board of Governors of the Federal Reserve System to discover which banks they had bailed out and for how much. The Board of Governors of the Federal Reserve System appealed in 2009, arguing that they met the requirements of Exemption 4 of the FOIA request because the Federal Reserve Banks in question were “persons,” i.e. private corporations; therefore, disclosure would harm them. Though the Board of Governors lost the appeal and turned over documentation in 2011, what they submitted has been reported to have been mostly inconsequential to Bloomberg LP’s FOIA request and expectation.

But wait…there’s more. As the prime mover of all things financial, the Fed, no matter the truth of its legal structure, remains the bottom-line issue when it comes to U.S. economic success. That means no president, no matter how opposed to the one before them, is ever truly anti-establishment until and unless they take on the Federal Reserve Banking System.

A monetary system which issues currency that literally depreciates like a car (worth approximately 3 cents today) and decreases purchasing power at the register at an alarming and accelerating pace cannot be trusted. Quietly and systemically it undermines long-term economic growth and stability for everyday Americans. Since financial giants benefit from the current economic set-up, this awareness is not popular. It’s money that rules the world, not politicians.

  1. The unfed is the creature in the swamp along with all of the paid for ‘politicians’.
    it would seem that more and more folks are catching onto this. The dark forces are being outed and will eventually perish in the light.
    ‘…You can run on for a long time..what was hatched in the dark will be brought into the light…’ Johnny Cash circa 1960’s.
    Bitcoin anyone.
    Drain the swamp.
    It’s a movement.
    END the Fed – Ron Paul and me.

  2. The federal government, which is OWNED by The Federal Reserve, will never break away from its master.

    New societies established through SECESSION by liberty minded individuals must lead the movement to destroy monopoly central banking, fractional reserve lending, and fiat currency.

  3. Sorry babe, but that doesn’t mean Trump is not anti-establishment. There is only so much he can say or do before they assassinate him. …..and that is what they will do before they let him shut down the Fed Res.

    As I have stated before, his fortune is in their system. There will be no revolutions.

  5. Yup!

    And the only way any candidate will ever be different from the establishment boys and girls is if America resurrects mandatory biblicaly qualifications for civil leaders (required in 17th-century Colonial America) by repealing Article 6’s Christian test ban. While we’re at it, why not repeal the entire biblically seditious Constitution responsible for sending America to the precipice of moral depravity and destruction:

    “…3. Every problem America faces today can be traced back to the fact that the framers failed to expressly establish a government upon Yahweh’s immutable morality as codified in His commandments, statutes, and
    judgments. (Would infanticide and sodomy be tolerated, let alone financed by the government, if Yahweh’s perfect law and altogether righteous judgments were the law of the land? Would Islam be a looming threat to our peace and security if the First Amendment had been replaced with the First Commandment? Would Americans be in nearly as much debt if usury had been outlawed as a form of theft? Would crime be as rampant if “cruel and unusual punishment” had not been outlawed and criminals were instead punished with Yahweh’s altogether righteous judgments? Would we be on the fiscal cliff if we were taxed with a flat
    increase tax rather than a graduated income tax?)…

    “On February 27, 2009, James Dobson conceded that we have lost the culture wars. This is the consequence of Christians having spent the last two centuries lopping at the rotten branches of our culture’s corrupt tree while watering and fertilizing its roots.

    “We should lop away at the tree’s corrupt branches (infanticide, sodomy, the economy, etc.). However, until the root of these problems is Biblically addressed, we will never shut down the infanticide mills, we will never defeat the sodomites, and we will never fix the economy. In short, we will never win the culture wars. This
    issue is more than important for anyone concerned about God, our nation, and the future of our posterity, it’s the cutting- edge issue of our day…..”

    Then find out how much you REALLY know about the Constitution as compared to the Bible. Take our 10-question Constitution Survey in the right-hand sidebar and receive a complimentary copy of a book that EXAMINES the Constitution by the Bible.

    • If you want “mandatory biblical qualifications” for civil leaders, why aren’t you pushing for a Convention of the States and get that included in the U.S. Constitution?

      Your idea to have the U.S. Constitution abolished for this “defect” is DOA.

    • Grundune is a Mormon who rejects the Christ of the Bible and the Word of God (Psalm 19:7-11; John 1:1-3, 14; 1 Timothy 3:16; 2 John 1:7-11; etc.) and whose “Doctrine and Covenants” demand he defend the Constitution as divinely inspired (D&C 101:80, etc.), much the same as the Book of Mormon. He knows if the Constitution is exposed for the biblically seditious document it is, that
      the entire Mormon house of cards comes tumbling down.

      Tragically, many Christians are more inclined to follow Doctrine and Covenants than they are the Bible when it comes to the Constitution.

    • Kingdom Ambassador, aka Ted R. Weiland, failed internet fringe preacher doesn’t tell the truth about the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints so why should he be believed when he advocates the abolishment of the U.S. Constitution?

    If anyone was expecting a CEO/President of US inc to end the Federal Reserve, which only one has tried/failed, then they do not comprehend the situation of control over US inc. Ron Paul was the only candidate to ever present that opportunity.
    People fear of what might happen if you remove the currency issuer from their daily equation, as they must shop at “Walmart”.
