I know that once you start talking banks, finance and things like The Fed, people’s eyes tend to glaze over.
But I promise you, The Fed is one of the most disastrous things to ever happen to the USA.
For more on that and why you should care, check out this video (but be prepared to have your world view rocked):
Now to the breaking news story….
The House just passed a bill to Audit the Fed. This has never been done before! The Fed is not a government entity. It acts like one, but it is not government. It’s ran by the Rockefellers and their ilk. It does NOT have our best interest at heart. We have NEVER once had a chance to actually see, let alone audit, their books.
This is a revolutionary bill that makes the audit one step closer to reality.
Here’s the story, from MarketWatch:
A House panel on Tuesday approved legislation that would let a government watchdog audit the Federal Reserve’s monetary policy decisions, a move bitterly opposed by the central bank.
The House Committee on oversight and government reform passed the measure by voice vote after roughly 30 minutes of debate.
The bill was the brainchild of Ron Paul, the former House Republican and libertarian presidential candidate and sharp critic of the U.S. monetary policy. Versions of the bill have twice passed the House by wide margins but then stalled due to lack of support from Democrats in the Senate and the Obama administration.
Analysts said the measure has a better chance to become law now that Republicans control both houses of Congress and the White House. Paul’s son, Rand, the Republican senator from Kentucky, has introduced a similar measure in the Senate.
Democrats in the committee were firmly against the bill.
“This bill would open the floodgates to political interference in monetary-policy making,” said Del. Eleanor Holmes Norton, a Democrat from the District of Columbia.
Rep. Carolyn Maloney, a Democrat from New York, said the measure would lead to higher interest rates because it would undermine the market’s confidence in the independence of the central bank.
Republicans said the measure was needed to rein in the Fed.
