I feel kinda weird posting Ben's work when he has his own forum but here it is!



I read the other day about Cruz's loans from Goldman Sachs for his campaign and something about him not properly disclosing it and yada yada yada. Truth be told I couldn't care less but thanks to Swann I learn Cruz didn't show this week to vote for a bill he co sponsored? Seriously? Why? What the hell? He goes on rants about the federal reserve, co sponsors the bill with Paul but doesn't show up to vote? Too busy to do your job, a job you created for yourself? Good lord!

Is this guy some kind of wolf in sheep's clothing? Is he working for the Big Banks? If not, at the least this says something about his character and just one more reason I would never vote for him.

And what the hell Democrats? Why are they so against government oversight of the federal reserve??? I guess they are whores to the banks too.

Sanders showed up to vote. He voted YEA.

Whose not a Democrat, Cruz? Yeah, I know. My beef was with all the democrats and the one independent against auditing the Fed.

Jeesh.

Talk about a partisan vote.

What riders were attached to this bill?

Anyone who would vote against auditing the FED without a very good reason should probably be audited themselves.

Yeah right, and I just noticed Franken didn't show up either! Although, I suppose he would have voted nay? What's his thoughts about the Fed?

Yeah, that's the only reason I could think of, besides them being Banker's whores, was that some added on fat to the bill caused them to vote nay. Would Paul do that though? Cause a separation between parties with riders that would force the democrats to work against him and vote nay?

Anyone got the details about his bill?

So what you're saying is there's a chance; a chance they're whores.

*Bernie's not a Democrat but he supports Paul's bill, is what I meant. Sorry that wasn't clear.

He voted for it.

Yeah, I forget he's an independent because I associate him with the democrats now that he's running for prez.

So the bill would allow government oversight of:



(1) transactions for or with a foreign central bank, government of a foreign country, or nonprivate international financing organization;

(2) deliberations, decisions, or actions on monetary policy matters, including discount window operations, reserves of member banks, securities credit, interest on
Deposits, and open market operations;

(3) transactions made under the direction of the Federal Open Market Committee; or

(4) a part of a discussion or communication among or between members of the Board and officers and employees of the Federal Reserve System related to clauses (1)–(3) of this subsection.


So, yeah, I think the GAO should be VERY aware of our central bank's dealings with other nation's central banks and governments.

Somebody needs to be in jail I think.

I'm not really sure how I feel about your post but I think it was meant as an insult?

If Congress audited the Fed and found them wanting,wouldn't that power revert back to Congress?Why wouldn't they want that power?

I have no idea what you're saying, what do you mean it would revert back power? All this is doing is finally auditing the fed and seeing everything. How is it the gov't hasn't been doing at least this since it began?

Congress already has the power. They always have.

But the Federal Reserve has the Money.

And don't forget, the Fed and most central banks worldwide take "advice" from the Basel Committee in Switzerland.

Glenn Beck Sends Ted Cruz an Email in Hopes of Understanding Why He Missed ‘Audit the Fed’ Vote — and Gets a Response
www.theblaze.com...




From: Ted Cruz
Date: January 13, 2016 at 7:50:37 AM CST
To: "Beck, Glenn"
Subject: Re: Urgent Can I get a comment

Sure.

I strongly support auditing the Fed. Indeed, I was an original co-sponsor of Ron Paul's Audit the Fed bill. Unfortunately, it was clear early on that yesterday's vote wasn't going to succeed (it fell 7 votes short). And, at the same time that the vote was scheduled, I had longstanding commitments to be in New Hampshire -- for a Second Amendment rally, and a 1500- person State of the Union town hall. If my vote would have made a difference in it passing, I would have cancelled my campaign events to be there. Because the vote was not going to succeed, I honored my commitments to be with the men and women of New Hampshire.

As President, I look forward to signing Audit the Fed legislation into law.

Cruz's wife is a Golden Sach's employee, the Region Head for the Southwest Region in the Investment Management Division, promoted from a vice president in 2013. She's taken a leave of absence for the campaign duration.

I suspect Cruz only pretended to support the Fed audit to appeal to the Tea Partiers and Libertarians. I don't think any Republican can win without them.
