Fed Would Be Shut Down If It Were Audited, Expert Says


www.cnbc.com

The Federal Reserve's balance sheet is so out of whack that the central bank would be shut down if subjected to a conventional audit, Jim Grant, editor of Grant's Interest Rate Observer, told CNBC. With $45 billion in capital and $2.1 trillion in assets, the central bank would not withstand the scrutiny normally afforded other institutions, Grant said in a live interview.

"If the Fed examiners were set upon the Fed's own documents—unlabeled documents—to pass judgment on the Fed's capacity to survive the difficulties it faces in credit, it would shut this institution down,"

And yet, as we see, most of the gov puppets subservient to this fraudulent and criminal enterprises keep PROTECTING it.

This has become such a joke anymore. We have criminals not even part of our gov pulling all of its strings and dictating monetary policy with capital that they don't even have anything of any real value to back up with. They are a world class racketeering scam. And this has been going on for HOW many decades now?

I hope the public's awareness continues growing and that we can finally expose these criminals for what they've been doing for nearly a century and put an end to this nonsense once and for all. But I'm not holding my breath...

I am not worried about those miscreants being punished. They will skip the country with suitcases filled with gold before that happens. The fed reserve should be shut down, Americans have suffered the fed long enough.

It's not just Americans who have suffered.
It's many countries

That's why it's time to go back to the gold standard, because FIAT and the FED disallows keeping govt. spending in check.

So War and military expansion will always be a result of this unchecking of govt. spending.

Anyone see the movie The International?

I don't think it's enough to simply disband the Fed. These guys are crooks with both history and vision. I think that once Gitmo is cleared out of terrorists, it should be used to house the Fed, the czars whose very existence is unconstitutional, and pretty much all of Washington who is using a crisis to shred the constitution and funnel money to each other and their buddies. between the fed and washington insiders, you would have a group worthy of gitmo. then turn the whole thing over to Castro to maintain and see how much they all love socialism.

The FED and our government have become so far beyond corrupt that the people can no longer rely on either to police themselves... there are no checks and balances anymore. It's like the movie "The Marathon Man". Everyone you turn to for help are themselves crooks. There just doesn't seem to be anyone to turn to anymore... depressing really.

Since Americans seem unable, unwilling, and/or unmotivated (take your pick) to round up these crooks, lock them up, and throw away the key, maybe we need outside help to clean our house for us.

I tried talking about doing what you suggest, it ended badly with the FBI showing up at my door.

The lobbying efforts have kicked off and STRONG. I heard HR1207 has lost 7 co-sponsors since they've ramped up their efforts. They know they're in trouble with Ron Paul and his associates leading the way. We can't let this bill fail. Even if it's not a breakthough, it will be an effort to wall up the flow of BS that the FED has been pouring out since 1913.

Andrew Jackson



Mischief springs from the power which the moneyed interest derives from a paper currency which they are able to control, from the multitude of corporations with exclusive privileges... which are employed altogether for their benefit.




Andrew Jackson right before he shut down the 2nd National Bank and cleared our national debt for the first and only time in our history. I think it's time to read up on some history and learn. There is a reason our founding fathers and other patriots including Jackson had an issue with the international banking cartel.

Well
Of course it would have to be shut down. You think Ron Paul didn't know what he was doing all along here with HR1207?
I've been talking about this for a while now with a friend telling him this is exactly what Ron Paul knows- that if he can secure a comprehensive audit of the fed that it will be found to be so screwed up that they will have to shut it down.

And as of this writing, HR 1207 has a whopping 200 cosponsors in the house.
We might just allow those 200 a lighter sentence when all this is said and done. Any more takers? We'll go easy on yas, just for being good sports.

I made a mistake, or more like Campaign for Liberty made a mistake. We still have 207, not 200 as they reported! It's all good!

Ron Paul’s HR1207 is Unstoppable! 207 Cosponsors now

June 9th, 2009 8:12 pm | by Marc Gallagher

According to Matt Hawes at the Campaign For Liberty Ron Paul’s HR1207 to audit the Federal Reserve now has 207 cosponsors, including House Minority leader John Boehner!

One has to believe at this point that HR1207, in some form, will be passed by the House of Representatives. This is one bipartisan regulatory bill we can fully get behind.

I have serious reservations about the efficacy of HR1207, but as I’ve stated in the past it is a good start down the road of transparency that we truly need. We can only hope that such transparency, if passed, forces the Federal Reserve into a position of making very careful choices about how it conducts its business.

From Matt Hawes at the Campaign For Liberty:

Earlier in the day, we reported that HR 1207 is now up to 200 cosponsors.

I’d like to correct that… by changing it to 207!!!

Rep. David Dreier (R-CA)
Rep. Steve King (R-IA)
Rep. John Boehner (R-OH)**
Rep. Ed Perlmutter (D-CO)*
Rep. Chris Lee (R-NY)*
Rep. Mike McIntyre (D-NC)
Rep. Jim McGovern (D-MA)

* House Financial Services Committee Member

** Minority Leader, House of Representatives (Yes, you read that right!)

This means that just 10 more cosponsors are needed to attain a House majority. Our tracking page should be updated as soon as thomas.loc.gov updates the official count.

I saw that number as high as 209. But in reality, I'm not sure it really matters. They've been gutting it slowly but surely. The doubts expressed are well-founded.

Progress is a slow process.

Truth has very many enemies.

Paul's bill is far more potent than the lackluster origin of what we've seen with Kucinich' bill. The good thing about both of them are that they're heading in the right direction and it has caused fear within the FED. They're hiring marketing teams, lobbyists, etc... to combat a small number of people that have started a snowball effect with a true American movement!

I don't really agree with your self-defeatist attitude. I know this kind of puts a damper on your plans of a violent American revolution, but you should be happy with anything that involves combating greed and evil with truth and right.

We'll see where it takes us. We can only offer our support.

Think of how that would affect the economy and business in the us. I don't think the government will allow an audit, and if they did, it would show everything is ok and nothing is wrong as they keep us in the dark about it. And to think, these are the guys helping out car companies, banks, and other bailout business in the us.

Honestly, in the end the idea of money is absurd. "Why should you have to pay to live on the planet you were born?"
