The Federal Reserve, a Privately Owned Banking Cartel, Has Been Given Police Powers, with Glock 22s and Patrol Cars

Quietly, without fanfare or Congressional hearings, the USA Patriot Act in 2001 bestowed on the 12 privately owned Federal Reserve Banks, domestic policing powers.

Now why would a bank need to be in fear after a so called "terrorist" attack? Were they worried that they may somehow be associated with the attacks?

Lets be honest, very little happens in this world without the knowledge and or input of the financiers and banksters. This video does a nice job of connecting the dots:

Seems that this provision has never been mentioned let alone discussed.

Whats more startling is the broad range of powers that they were given:

...authorized while on duty to carry firearms and make arrests without warrants for any offense against the United States committed in their presence...

Without warrants? For "any" offense? WOW.

Theyve been given more powers than any normal police officer.

But wait it gets better:

The Cleveland Fed notes that the job “may include, but would not be limited to: use of deadly or non-lethal force…”

Banks have security not their own law enforcement. However, these FED banks operate a little differently and probably require much more protection. But still, arrest powers with no warrant? That seems a little over the top, but since this has been around since 2001, how many people have they actually arrested?

Proberly no one RAB. I think it was for the future. They must have known what problems they would create in the future and were preparing for it. The fed isnt even American? European banksters? Still its strange that a bank was givern those powers. Money rules in the USA. Dosnt matter who or what you are. As long as you have enough money then you are number one.

Also created in 2001 after 9-11 was "Certegy".

The check and credit card verification company used across America. The Fed's wanted to use it to stop people from getting access to their credit cards, checking accounts .....if they thought they were potential "Terrorists".

Funny thing happened. US Military members who traveled alot across the country and had a hobby of shooting firearms were RED FLAGGED since their computers saw them buying ammo with their plastic cards and buying lots of gasoline and hotels as they crossed the country. Certegy started blocking US GI's access to their own accounts....even blocked them from using their Government Issued Credit Cards while they were traveling.

The whole "Certegy" program failed and really kicked the bucket when one of the employees took all the data it had on people and sold it to pocket the money. America got undermined but really the CIA/Pentagon/Federal Reserve supported everyones data being compromised because as crooks used your data to get to money it created a benefit to the economy of adding money into the system that otherwise wouldn't have been there to boost the economy.

In the end they'd wipe away the hundreds of Billions in losses annually as they always do under the radar....they just wanted to kick the can down the road.

Boy what a scandal they opened up with that.....funny part was they actually stopped the movement of US military to their destinations/deployments when they flagged them with their computers and blocked them access to their own money AND Government Issued Travel was RIOT.....certain people made Millions...a few Billions.

everyone on the Fed board currently is American, and im sure that most of the branch presidents are American as well, but yes in the pocket of euro bankers. New York Stock Exchange was just bought by Germany, no one seems to notice. Cash rules the world, just not mine

I know it sounds stupid, but if you buy local and don't become a crazy consumer, you can stay under the radar of giant corporations.
