July 6, 2009

Dear Friend of Liberty,

Earlier today, the first shot in our battle to pass Audit the Fed through the U.S. Senate was fired on the Senate floor by Senator Jim DeMint of South Carolina.

Senator DeMint, who has a well-deserved reputation for taking the battle to the other side in the Senate, once again proved why he is such a valuable ally in our fight to bring transparency and accountability to the Federal Reserve.

A little while ago, the Senate voted to pass HR 2918, the Legislative Branch Appropriations Act. This $3 billion bill contains, among many other things, provisions for GAO audits on certain agencies.

Seizing on a chance to take quick action to bring Audit the Fed up for a vote, and with the GAO provisions in mind, Senator DeMint attached the full text of S 604, the Senate version of Ron Paul's Audit the Fed bill, to HR 2918 as Senate Amendment 1367 before it was considered for final passage.

However, Senate Democrats refused to even allow a vote on the amendment! That's right. The internationalist, Fed-loving elite in the Senate used a parliamentary tactic to shut down DeMint's amendment.

After Senator DeMint brought Audit the Fed to the floor, Senator Ben Nelson of Nebraska raised a "point of order" to prevent a vote, claiming that the amendment violated Senate Rule 16 by "legislating" on an appropriations bill. The Senate president agreed, and the amendment was shot down.

Senator DeMint did not back down, though, and directly challenged Senate leadership by pointing out the other GAO audits contained in the bill. As Senator DeMint listed them off, the Senate president was forced to agree with Senator DeMint that each one he described, all of which would be left in for final passage, also violated Senate Rule 16.

Which tells us at least one thing: the problem wasn't with "legislating" on the bill or violating Senate Rules (which is commonly done). Shooting down the amendment was about preventing a thorough audit of the Federal Reserve for the first time in its history!

Senate leadership is hoping this issue will just fade away so they can get on to what they deem to be more "important" business, like dictating what kind of healthcare plan you and I can carry or passing destructive Cap-and-Tax legislation.

But the American people deserve answers on what the Fed has done with trillions of our tax dollars and what they are committing us and future generations to as part of their secret deals with foreign central banks and governments.

The leadership decided today to turn their backs on transparency, but our fight is just beginning.

As Senator DeMint made clear on the floor, the Audit the Fed bill has wide bipartisan support. He rightly warned the Senate that even if they delay today, they WILL have to deal with the issue on the floor.

It is up to you and me to back up Senator DeMint's words by making sure the momentum continues to build and the bill comes up for a final vote.

The rejection of the Audit amendment is just the first battle in our war. Now is the time to really put the pressure on the U.S. Senate to Audit the Fed!

Senator DeMint fired the opening salvo and showcased the hypocrisy of the Senate for allowing other GAO audits to be included in the bill while refusing to even allow a vote on Fed transparency.

Again, we're just getting started. Senator DeMint will keep fighting to pass Audit the Fed on its own or as an amendment, and we need to continue putting pressure on our senators to do everything in their power to achieve a floor vote!

Click here to sign our online petition. And visit our Audit the Fed action page for contact information to call, write, and fax your senators and urge them to support S 604 and to push for a final vote.

Together, we will finish this fight to Audit the Fed!


In Liberty,

John Tate

President

I really do not believe anything will come from all of this because the Feds have too much power and too many lined wallets but i am proud to know that we still have a few honest souls that are fighting for America.
I would write my Congressman but millions of us did that during the bailout and you see where that got us. We are not represented anymore on either side of the aisle but I will sign the petition and continue to spread the word and root for the home team.

I thank Ron Paul for creating this movement. I donated $25.00 for his campaign during his run for office (it was all I could afford
) But hey a call to ur senator or state rep is almost free. Any of you passionate about this please make that call!

Haha, I just got that email too, but you beat me to posting it. Thanks for getting it out there.

Now why would anybody object to bringing transparency to such a powerful organization? Corruption couldn't be much more blatant than this. It's important that we contact our senators and make sure to get everyone out of office that is opposed to auditing the fed. We will show our "leaders" in Washington that democracy can still work before it's all flushed down the toilet.

Who wants to watch the action?



Yeah, I know it's boring but I thought it would be nice to see it for ourselves.

Thank you for bringing this to my attention. Granted I had already heard about bills being proposed to audit the fed, but I really like the link the OP had because it made it so easy to take action. S and F
My congressman is already a cosponsor, yay!!

My senators OTOH are not supportive of it so they just heard from me haha

Good on DeMint on this one. I hope he's sincere in what he's doing....when will someone take a stand? When will someone just go off in Congress and starting throwing crap and go in a tirade?

Where is it and why hasn't it happened yet?

I want to see some GD anger...and there is NONE.

I guess we all know who will be voted out (or something of the sort) in the next election cycle.

Another line.

Great OP.

Remember, last month, while Bernanke was in committee he stated his opinion of auditing the FED.



No surprise there, however, it's somewhat encouraging to see them, at least, going through the motions.

Can someone please tell me what would happen if the Fed bank is audited? From my understanding audit means;


The general definition of an audit is an evaluation of a person, organization, system, process, project or product. Audits are performed to ascertain the validity and reliability of information; also to provide an assessment of a system's internal control. The goal of an audit is to express an opinion on the person / organization/system (etc) in question, under evaluation based on work done on a test basis.


We know TPTB behind the Fed are evil/ corrupt. Would they be investigated and arrested? What would happen if we found out TPTB in the Fed had ties to other people in power, such as the U.S government, courts, police departments and the MSM? And we found that they have been bribed to follow the Fed's orders? Would they also be investigated and arrested? What are the consequences of auditing the Fed? How widespread is the corruption? How far would TPTB go to prevent themselves being exposed?

I don't understand how they do all this in public and get away with it.
Kinda like the demorats going in hours early, locking everyone out and illegaly passing as many bills as they could before everybody gets there.

Whats it take to get everyone off their a**es? problem with sites like this and all the useless protests. They accomplish nothing.

When will everyone learn that NOBODY wants violence but at least our ancestors knew and had the balls to realize that IT was the only action which ever accomplished anything and ever actually worked...

Everyone will sit here posting about such cynical topics until the day every last one of your freedoms and physical being are finally incarcerated. Only then will everyone wish they have finally did something about it and realize that the time we spent sitting hear poking away at our keyboards was a precious waste of time.

My prediction for this endeavor is that before the FED will allow an audit, they will declare a banking holiday, effectively eliminating any chance at an audit. When they realize their goose is cooked, the banks will close. Watch for it.

The goose that lays the golden egg, is already dead, and the FED have it in the freezer, ready to cook when the time is right. I think they have started to thaw it out.

I'm totally for anything that will take some of the power away from the FED. The scumbag Democratic leadership, those bunch of kool-aid drinking bas____s, know that if the FED gets audited, the public will absolutely know they are in on everything, because the Dems own the stimulus package. There is no doubt they control the show. America is wising up to what's happening, but I fear we are past the point of no return. I guess we will get the chance to find out.
