Wait till November. They have marked themselves for retirement.


Never under-estimate the NWO. Incompetency may be their hallmark traits, but they are not beyond being crafty and despicable.

Between now till nov, they may try a few false flag events to rally the masses back to their puppets, with slogans such as 'it's either with us or against us' type of BS as they had done for decades to hide and cover up their mistakes.

They won't be voted out. Like I stated earlier, most voters are too stupid to know or care the difference. A large number of voters are just going to go vote for whatever political party they randomly picked when they first registered as teenagers. A large number of voters will pick whoever their spouse is picking.

As always, the race will come down to Democrats promising to give bigger handouts to poor people and Republicans promising to cut more taxes for wealthy people and big businesses. Whoever manages to convince the most people that they will make them richer will be the winner of those elections.

This Federal Reserve stuff won't have a thing to do with it. I'd almost be willing to put money on the following statements:

1. I bet less than half of Americans know that there is a Federal Reserve in the first place.

2. I bet less than a quarter of Americans know what the Federal Reserve is and what it does.

3. I bet less than 5% of Americans know that there was an attempt even made to audit the Federal Reserve, and a portion of THOSE people have probably forgotten all about it and will never hear about the audit failing.

4. 75% of the people who DO know all that stuff will disregard it completely and vote for whichever schmuck promises to give them the most handouts and/or tax breaks anyways.

I bet those 114 either got bribed or blackmailed. They sponsored the bill in the first place, clearly they were all for it. It's this last minute change that looks really REALLY fishy to me.

It could be that the obfuscation concealing the FED's activities is all that keeps us from seeing how bankrupt we really are in the USA. Could Transparency of the FED be the straw that breaks the camels back(the camel being our economy)

We all know they print money by the billions with nothing backing it. It's worth less than the paper its printed on these days. It's a huge ponzi scheme and the politicians know it. They don't want the money train to stop.

This country is so broken. I hate the rich. I HATE the rich. Hate isn't a strong enough word. If I ever meet a CEO of goldman sachs or BP or Haliburton or any of those giant corporate devils, It would take every ounce of my willpower not to strangle the life out of them and set their corpse on fire.

This doesn't make sense. The only reason to vote no is they are afraid of something, maybe the truth.

This is BS. So when I screw up on my taxes it takes 1 person to say go audit him, but when the Federal Reserve messes with the entire United States' money, we need a majority vote of several hundred people?

screw this country. Oh wait, they already did.


That's what I was thinking. "Why would anybody vote 'no'?".

Something we have to think about is that the "Fed" is NOT any more federal than Federal Express. They are a private bank and essentially answer to no one. Alan Greenspan said as much. That being said, Obama could alway issue an Executive Order, something he is getting quite good at.

I just don't understand why anybody would vote 'no'. My best guess is that the politicians simply don't believe we could handle the truth. Either that, or things are much worse than they let on.

They tried that with the oil spill.

Uber fail.

They are trying it with Iran.

No one wants a war nor cares about it. Fail again.

Not much more they can do. 4 months. That's all they have to do something. Not much can be done.

Polliticians Backflip To Fail Federal Reserve Audit Bill (HR 1207)

Weak-will politicians sellout again.

www.victoriaadvocate.com...

A motion to add a provision that would "audit the Fed" to the financial overhaul bill failed Thursday.

U.S. Rep. Ron Paul sponsored the audit the Fed bill previously supported by 320 members of the House. But the audit add-on failed by a vote of 229-198.

"It is foolish to grant more powers to the institutions that caused all the moral hazard and malinvestments that got us into this mess," Paul said on his website. "It is doubly foolish to do so without any meaningful accountability or transparency."

The amendment would give the Government Accountability Office authority to audit the Federal Reserve, which has a long history of independence from congressional audits.



www.ronpaul.com...

Ron Paul’s attempt to audit the Federal Reserve, which was previously co-sponsored by 320 members of the House (HR 1207), failed by a vote of 229-198. All Republicans voted in favor of the measure with 23 Democrats crossing the aisle to vote with Republicans. 114 co-sponsors of HR 1207, all Democrats, jumped ship and voted against Audit the Fed.

The GOP had offered the Fed audit as the minority’s last chance to alter the financial regulation bill. The bill does have an watered-down audit provision in the conference report, but it is limited to loans made by the Fed during the height of the economic crisis. Ron Paul’s bill would have allowed a total examination of the Fed’s books.

Ron Paul is now under investigation by the FEC. Its all BS...
I know this is political..

He is rocking the boat. They must shut him up somehow
because if too many people step over to his side, it will turn over...
The last guybefore Ron Paul that told us the truth was Traficant (Ohio) and they put him in prison

Elected officials act as if they are shown information, proof, of some terrible future if they do not toe the line for TPTB. (and then sworn to super duper 'double secret probation' secrecy.)

They act as if they were shown something like "2012" and "the day after" and told that these were real events...coming real soon....and Here is your "Escape" pass for the secret underground bunkers...as long as you go along with the program and keep yer mouth shut.

Dr Robert Oppenheimer warned us in 1955 that the threat posed by the misuse of what was being discovered at that time about psychological techniques would make the threat of Atomic Armageddon seem trivial.

And yes, Dr Oppenheimer used the word " trivial. "...

The odds that the supposed coming end times are nothing more than a kingpin of a master psychological plan for social manipulation, in order to fleece the wealth of 'the little people', creating dependents upon federal largesse, who will also have to 'remain silent" to get their handouts., is far greater than any apocalyptic reality..

Why the Fed will NEVER be audited.

www.libertyforlife.com...


AND

www.save-a-patriot.org...



These families will NEVER allow the information to leak out that THEY are in charge of everything and that THEY have stolen your rights, wealth and property from you without you even knowing it. Stealthy Encroachment, welcome to reality.

These same families inter-marry to keep it all in the family. The also run the IMF and WHO and are behind the NWO agenda.

In light of this thread, I link to my own thread, which gives you all an idea of how these people will remain in power, even though the people do want them removed.

Star & Flag for posting this story. This is the first I've heard of it. Kuddos to Ron Paul and all other representatives supporting it.

BUT... even if the Audit Bill had passed... Who would perform such audit?

They would control or attempt to control who performed the audit, and the audit results. There is just ZERO honesty in our government and they have got their claws into our system and are not going to let go.

Careful. Never say never. All one power clinging nuthead needs is just 1 hour to galvanise the masses to his side with a concept so powerful many will have no other choice but to swear allegience and vote according to his wish. Humans seek peace above all else and it will be along such lines will the threat to peace concept be played out in full.

Remember how the Sadam war and lies was perpetrated? Even peaceniks was fooled into siding the moron puppet Bush and republicans.

Once bitten twice shy. The NWO thought they could use such cards again. The oil spill crisis was thought to draw the fearful to them for help and mercy, but instead it revealed more of the corruption and incompetency of the greedy Corporations and paid govt officials in collusion, just as this failed fed audit had proven.

The korean crisis, gaza blockades and many other false flag events were again stupidly played out and failed,because of the internet, as more awakened deeply discussed and rationalize such issues, making more awakened to the realities of our world.

And our masters know it, and will learn from it, and probably even attempt to subdue the effect of the internet. Keep your eyes open as disinfo with divide and conquer tactics abound, to separate us brothers and sisters from each other yet again.

We have to remain one and be one, with already existing common ground of rational aspirations to stand on no matter our differences. We are humans first, and this will be our guiding principle for freedom. To fail is to become slaves and be satisfied with scraps from the rich and powerful whom seek to maintain their hold over humanity.

Good luck!
