Ron Paul’s ‘Audit the Fed’ Bill to Get October Vote?

By

Jason Pye reports that Rep. Barney Frank (D-Mass.) will schedule an October committee vote on HR 1207, the “audit the Federal Reserve” bill introduced by Rep. Ron Paul (R-Texas).

We will subject them to a complete audit. I’ve been working with Ron Paul, who’s the main sponsor of that bill. He agrees we don’t want to have the audit appear as if it is influencing monetary policy, as that would be inflationary, and Ron agrees on that. We also think that one of the things the audit will show you is what the audit buys and sells.

Paul’s bill has 282 co-sponsors, including every member of the GOP in the House.

It's going to be attached to some of Frank's propositions though, right? So the vote is going to be on the whole package, which may or may not be favorable.

There are many ways this bill can be tarnished by a cadre of Establishment saboteurs… from EITHER party. Let them know that their own actions are going to be very closely scrutinized from this point in the legislative process onward. Political dirty tricks WILL be exposed.

Will the feds disclosure of spending recipients prove to be the stimulus of the big October event? The money they have spent is the burden of the taxpayer whether created by the Fed or collected from the
taxpayer.

Global War and Dying Democracy by Andrew Marshall
The new system being formed is not one based upon any notion of competition or “free markets” or “socialist morality”, but is, instead a system based upon consolidation of power and wealth; thus, the fewer the better; one government, one central bank, one army, one currency,one authority, one ruler. This is a much more “efficient” and “controllable” system, and thus requires a much smaller population or class to run it, as well as a much smaller population to serve it. Also, with such a system,a smaller global population would be ideal for the rulers, for it limits their risk, in terms of revolt, uprising, and revolution, and created a more manageable population. In this new capitalist system, the end goal is not profit, but power. It was through the central banking system that the most powerful figures and individuals ( Elitists ) in the world were able to consolidate power, controlling both industry and governments.These figures would collapse economies, destroying industry and thus, profits; bankrupt countries and collapse their political structures, destroying a base for the exercise of power; but in doing so, they would consolidate their authority over these governments and industry,wiping out competition and eliminating dissent.These are the main figures in the current reorganization of world order. Those who are driven by the lust for power often eliminate and remove all of those who helped them reach such a position.Power alters the psychology of the individual that holds it.Once power is achieved, and with no more power to gain, the obsession turns to the preservation of power & the paranoia of losing it.Power is a cancer; it eats away at its host.The greater the power held, the more cancerous it is, the more malignant it becomes.Power must be shared among all people the risk carried thus becomes a risk to all,and there is a more effective means through which everyone can act as a check against the abuse of power.

Go get “em” Ron, we're all cheering for you! Let's make sure to insist that it is done under Ron Paul's original terms as stated in Bill HR1207, not some watered down piece of useless legislation of a poor uneffective Audit that Ben Bernanke or some sympathizing Elitist judge would manipulate!

When that is done lets hope that we are able to “Abolish the Fed” very quickly! While we are at it is there any way we can impeach “Back Track” Obama and Biden at the same time?

I do not trust Frank as far as I could kick his fat lard but. He will water down the bill or gut it so that it will be meaningless. Frank is to0 far on the Federal banks payroll to allow this to occur. Time will tell. Hopefully the good citizens of Mass. will vote this sorry excuse for a Representative out of office in 2010.
