Ron Paul Leads Hearing On First Ever Audit Of Fed


www.prisonplanet.com

Texas Congressman and 2012 presidential candidate Ron Paul held hearings Tuesday into a recent and rare one off audit of the Federal Reserve’s crisis-response emergency lending programs of 2008.
In his role as chairman of the Domestic Monetary Policy subcommittee, Paul relished the glimmer of transparency that was afforded as part of the Dodd-Frank Act, signed into law last year.

Robert Auerbach, Professor of Public Affairs at the University of Texas, backed Paul up by putting the case that regular and ongoing audits would not affect the Fed’s independence in any major way.

“The Fed’s mythical flag of independence from politics, a favorite Fed mantra to avoid individual responsibility, is merely a shield intended to protect the institution from being forced to act in a more transparent fashion,” Auerbach testified.


This may be the start of big things! I hope to god Ron Paul gets elected so you cousins across the pond can abolish the federal reserve once and for all. My main fear is that if things stray too far away from the status quo, Ron might find himself mysteriously dead..

Lets hope things go well.


Here is an interview.

If he's elected te results won't show it so he won't be president.
Or he'll be killed by some "Maniac"


I bet the Fed Audit won't even take place because who is gonna have time with the coming war they want.

I want to start by emphatically agreeing with Ron Paul on his stance to audit the Federal Reserve Bank and hold them accountable for their actions and policies.

However...

This is just a political donkey wash, and will likely have no real effect on changing some of the many problems in Washington, the least of which is Ron Paul's totalitarian ideal of what the roll of Government is and specifically what the roll of the president is.

It's akin to a politician trying to impeach a sitting president for getting a BJ in the oval office while at the same time cheating on his wife and getting a BJ from a staffer in his own limousine.

The fact that Prison Planet is debuting this waste of all of our times further compounds the political BS it really is. Prison Planet if some may recall is the same website that brought us "20 Minutes with the President". a faked interview hosted by Charlie Sheen in the midst of his completely crazed, crack smoking days. So, their objectivity and more likely their reporting is highly suspect.

A show or farce you say?

That would be true, if only that nasty little fact that he has been pushing this for such a long time now.

Please read the first sentence of my post above. GOD PLEASE READ IT BEFORE REPLYING. For effs sake, why can't people read what other people post? Wouldn't that make a whole lot more sense than looking like a fool afterwards?

I agree that this has been a Ron Paul stance for a while now. I have agreed with his stance on this. The problem I see is that it is just one thing that he does that I agree with and that I have my suspicions of the source of information that we are getting this from.

I did read it.
To me, it is like stating "With all due respect, your a jackhole".
There is double speak in this.

Did you mean that it is great to see him after it, but think that he was granted the ability in thinking a fool's errand?

I've liked the look of Ron Paul for a long time now. I like the things he says, his manner, and his professionalism too.

The more i hear about him, the more i like him.

I'm not into violence, but if the fed or their cronies do off Paul, let's just say i wouldn't like to wait too long before seeing on the news that the top tier guys concerned had had a terrible tragic 'accident' themselves.

I reckon Paul is going to be what Kennedy would have been to America, if 'they' had let him live.

If you want to save your country from oblivion, you Americans had better start rallying around this guy.

I find it SHOCKING that he is the ONLY high profile politcian america has that wants to audit the FED to see where all the money is going and why during this lingering great economic crisis. You would think he would have more direct support somehow and that the corruption level at washington was not 99%.

I guess politicians put their career and life ahead of everything else and when you have the elite paying bribes and making all kinds of thinely veilled threats, its becomes a no brainer why so few act. Castro had 4-5 attempts on his life, chavez of venezuela came down with cancer, gadhafi was forced out by france and britain, north korean dictator kim is isolated and his people starve, JFK and the entire kennedy family was cursed to death LITERALY, etc.

The egomaniac "elite" scum have a chokehold on who gets elected and how they get elected. If you promise hope with a plan that is a guarantee you will NEVER get elected due to lack of funds. Now if somehow you get a change of heart the corporate media will start a smear campaign with all the dirt they can pick up and if you go "overboard" they will probably put a death contract out on you.

Only a mass awakening can bring change and it will happen sooner or later. The "elite" make martyrs as a last resort because it helps the awakening process in the long run.

This is one area where I support Ron Paul 100%. The Federal Reserve should be abolished, and all of its crony banks need to be dismantled.

Sadly, until there is a massive upheaval, the Fed and it's control over US will go nowhere.

The source is irrelevant, if Paul has been recorded stating similar things before, surely?

I've heard and seen Paul himself bemoan the FED and a great many other con artists that many laypeople imagine is a government department.

I'd estimate a good 80% of American don't know the FED is private, and not government.

I certainly thought it was government, simply by what i'd seen on TV, read in articles etc. It wasn't until i started hanging around internet forums like ATS that i discovered the truth about the gangsters in the FED.

Ron Paul is on video stating that they have to be audited, he's said it in at least a few videos i've seen, a year or more ago.

The source doesn't have to be trusted, if Paul has said it before, and he has.

So you don't have to search yourself...feast yer mince pies on these!

Ron Paul: Audit the Fed!



And from 2009, HR1207 Audit The Fed Hearing W Dr Ron Paul.

The source is very relevant, as they have perpetrated hoaxes like this before.

I understand that this is one of Ron Paul's long standing stances. It's in fact the one thing that I agree with Ron Paul on. The rest of his tyrannical tour de force to turn this Republic into a raging Theocracy, I don't agree with. But that's not the point of this thread.

But it is very relevant that Prison Planet hosted this. It may be a complete hoax. Who knows when this video was actually recorded, or if it even exists in reality at all, or if it's just a compilation video of another meeting.

But by and by this is a waste of time. Ron Paul himself cannot audit the Federal Reserve Bank (although I agree that it should be audited for those dunces that simply can't get the point of my argument). He simply doesn't have the support or power to do so himself.

So therefore it's just another politician promising something they cannot deliver on. (otherwise known as a lie)

I think that your want to be right is overshadowing the actual truth. I read in your posts where you say you agree with RP but then you turn around and say it could just be a hoax because of the source. Who cares whether it was Ronald McDonald or Krusty the clown that presented the fact that Ron Paul wants to audit the Fed when in fact, Ron Paul wants to audit the Fed. It is the truth, and I don't see how he could just be "putting on a show" if he has made these types of statements for years and it has been shown by multiple sources. The logic you use seems "fuzzy".

The point of the post is to show that again, Ron Paul is doing something to have the Fed audited to sort out where our money went and to improve transparency. Who knows, maybe if people would have taken him more seriously before we could have avoided an economic meltdown or at least some aspects of it. I am glad he is actually doing something to help this country make a step in the right direction.

The last person to give the Fed grief was JFK . JFK signed an Executive order #11110 that gave the United States Treasury the ability to print money based on the Silver that we had . That made the fiat currency of the FEDERAL RESERVE essentially worthless . Ones and fives were printed and as soon as he was dead that money disappeared . As it passed with the monopoly money we use today most probably the Fed kept it and redeemed the silver also . The other president to cross the Bank of England and the Rothschilds was Lincoln . He also printed his own Greenbacks in out US Treasury to finance the war . He did this rather than borrow money at 24 to 36 % interest . The war was said to have been promulgated by the Rothschilds to divide this country and of course they financed both sides . So the Fed Reserve has been a thorn in our side from the beginning . My thoughts are that the Bank of England owned by the Rothschilds caused unrest to get people from Europe to flee persecution, come to this continent to subdue the Indians whom they could not deal with , take the land and then trick our bunch out of it as they have done so far .So far it's worked
Ron will be made an example of I'm sure .You don't cross the FED.

I know that Ron Paul has wanted to audit the Fed for a long time. That is part of my problem with the source. They could have put any video up there at any time with Ron Paul wanting to audit the Fed and it would be consistent with his stance.

The other problem is that Ron Paul doesn't have the congressional votes to do this.

Which translates in reality to another empty promise by a 30+ year career politician.

I am all ears

please direct me to the media whose reporting is not suspect in terms of objectivity, and while you are at it, filtering out all the facts that do not support their objectivity

I think the Fed needs a good audit and the time for the puppet masters to take a back seat for a while just may be near.....

The first part of your post was total twaddle and so I won't answer your inept and ridiculous request.

I agree, the Fed should be audited. Actually, in my opinion, it should have it's charter revoked, the Treasury department should print all money and the private institution known as the Federal Reserve Bank should be on the hook for all of the Debt the US currently holds.

But reality dictates that the second part of your statement won't happen. Sorry, Ron Paul, despite being the Conservative Messiah, isn't that powerful. Therefore this is just show. This is just posturing because he is running for President. It's all a show, Ron Paul knows this, and he is playing this stupidity to fool the morons that think this idiot actually works for the people.
