It looks like the Federal Reserve may finally have something to worry about now that HR 1207 is finally gaining serious steam. If enacted, HR 1207 will amend title 31 of the United States Code and reform the manner in which the Board of Governors of the Federal Reserve System is audited by the Comptroller General of the United States. In other words, for the first time since 1950, the criminals at the Federal Reserve will be forced by law to open their books.

HR 1207 was sponsored and introduced by Rep. Ron Paul. On February 26, 2009, it was referred to the House Committee on Financial Services. It now has 179 co-sponsors (see the list of sponsors below).

If passed, the bill will force the Fed to give a public accounting of the trillions of taxpayer “loans” handed over to the banksters. It will force Congress to audit the Fed and this will force out into the light of day the Fed practice of inflating the currency for the gain of a small number of international bankers. It will reveal the bankster practice of engineering financial crises and depressions — or scientifically created, as Congressman Charles A. Lindberg Sr. said after the Federal Reserve Act was passed in the dead of night — in order to consolidate illicit gains and eliminate competition (as the bankers are monopoly men).

On March 25, 2009, H.R. 1207 had 44 co-sponsors. “We’re making great progress because a lot of you have helped encourage your member of Congress to co-sponsor the bill,” Ron Paul said. “And to me, this is very, very important that we do this. The atmosphere in the Congress has definitely changed. It’s changed with their attitude about the Federal Reserve System, but overall there’s a tremendous push by the American people for the Congress to wake up and have more transparency… I have argued, of course, that we don’t need the Federal Reserve. It’s not part of our constitution and we should get rid of it, but it doesn’t happen that way. But if we get the audit and get the books open, make them answer the questions, I am convinced that the American people will be so outraged that then we will have reform of the monetary system.”

Imagine Ben Bernanke, shorn of his arrogance, dragged before Congress and compelled to answer questions. In the not too distant past, this prospect was a remote dream, but now, thanks to Ron Paul and all the people who have insisted their representatives support this bill, it may become law.

This is good news! I hope this bill does pass. I have always believed that if the government wants to audit and tax us, then they should lead by example and get audited as well.

I agree. THis does sound like a good thing. Hopefully it will pass.

Although I think this is a good thing... I think it does not go far enough. We need to be RID of these evil F#s.

As long as they have the power to create and control our money...they can do with us as they wish.

I think that the only way for this to pass and put all those scum for some tar and feathers is to convince the reps that do not appear on the list to pass this bill. Only by sheer force of numbers will it pull through.

Every time I see news like this, I'm reminded of this thread where the Inspector General is desperately trying to swerve the conversation.

You read my mind. The passage of this bill will be the catalyst of the true end of america. We are the bankers bitches now and they really own this place. If we bite the hand that feeds they will retaliate and we all know what to expect....

Not sure if I agree...

We got the biggest guns,
and the strongest army in the World,
why do we need someone checking our checks and balances?

Soldier boy here maybe I dont understand but ah.. We are the strong.. Our voice echoes, does this not add to our demise?

Honest question, we are America,
just is this that important?

oh did I awaken you.. Good,
speak up...

seriously..

civilians...
A fortiori Ad eundem gradum, Amor ordinem nescit..

I will never forget brothers..
here nor there I am at the place where he says nothing holds in the lost or incomplete... How you feel is like I seek... A bill passing past the mandibles sitting in a place to hold the shape of the latter to the sun.

One in the few who disagree's. We are America..

America baby...

Let me be ignorant..
for I am not alone...
wake the hell up...

It doesn't go far enough but I think this can only be done successfully in baby steps or the whole thing will come crashing down again and it could be worse than the last financial crisis.
I think even Ron Paul realises this and although he doesn't say it, after the Audit and you've got fact and figures and also PROOF of illegality, then you can take it to the next level.

I think this steady as she goes method is a good idea.
Otherwise, you'll have most digging in their heels and not co operating if they knew the big picture.

Fair enough, yes. It is a good first step. I just hope that we have the strength to act fully and appropriately when we get the damning news.

Yeah but its gonna take brains and not brute strength this time around. Armed revolutions will result in destruction and the total acquiescence liberty. In fact, this is a major reason it is being encouraged by many.

We are dealing with higher intelligence and perhaps a higher force than we cannot fully comprehend yet....

The chess game is not over but we have lost many pieces. It will take strategy, resourcefulness to the extreme, and a great effort but it can still be done. Once the shackles are in place there will be no turning back...This is why we must now, at this moment, simply become the change we would like to see.

The cookies will crumble and the lemons will be dispensed

sometimes it can be depressing to realize that not enough people are tuned into the reality of the deliberate polarization of the collective conscious. It has always been a tactic, used time and again throughout history only now the technology is far beyond anything in observable history.

How do you combat polarization? The middle ground, as most would agree, is probably the best pathway to take. When you get to the extremes you fall into the trap. Many people label this as attention deficit/depression/bipolar/OCD.
Polarization can be neutralized by education and awareness and avoiding extremes. If you happen to be a risk taker like myself, you know that for as high as you go, you will sink equally as low. Polarization can be annihilated by the mass understanding of this tactic, but until that happens the results will stay the same.

The most powerful controller of the mass consciousness? I believe that there are many contributors but the most insidious would be the television. Control the media control the viewers minds and realities. I wonder if there is some way around this???


It will take ideas and leaders to act on those ideas, but the catch is.......


leaders are made not born. We will have to endure suffering to defeat our enemy and it will take solidarity in an innovative way to cope with the trappings of our lust for technology....

The death star exploded from within....
