HuffPo Op Ed: Time to Audit the Fed

by Rick Sanchez | Huffington Post

Snip:

We have seen the enemy and he is us.

Congress is spending tomorrow's money today, throwing us into economic oblivion. But Congress isn't the only culprit in the crime of grand larceny of our future. The Federal Reserve -- a quasi-public institution that includes privately-owned US banks -- is a more than willing accomplice.

As Thomas Jefferson warned, "...banking establishments are more dangerous than standing armies; and... the principle of spending money to be paid by posterity, under the name of funding, is but swindling futurity on a large scale."

For an entity that wields so much power, we know relatively little about the Fed. Would you trust an unknown banker to decide what happens with your paycheck every week? Why do we accept this for our country?

We grow up revering our government's transparency. "Checks and balances" is as much a part of our lexicon as is "American Idol." Yet perhaps the most powerful part of our government, the one constituting the biggest potential conflict of interest in our government's history, goes unchecked and unbalanced.

The mystery that is the Federal Reserve begins with its name, since it is neither Federal nor does it have any reserves. Those two facts are the crux of the problem.

Printing Truth in The Free Press? How will they make payroll?

Shocking!

"I am personally acquainted with hundreds of journalists, and the opinion of the majority of them would not be worth tuppence in private, but when they speak in print it is the newspaper that is talking (the pygmy scribe is not visible) and then their utterances shake the community like the thunders of prophecy."
- "License of the Press," speech, 31 March 1873

Huff, & a Puff...

Rick "I never said one intelligent thing on CNN" Sanchez?

WTH? Things must really be bad when we get Sanchez preaching anti-Fed reality.

When one speaks with authority long enough, eventually the

people will come to believe it. Once the light of reality is realized nothing can put it out. The New World Order is is trouble, they know it and there are shaking in their proverbial boots.

When this is all over and the murdering liars and cheats are rounded up, tried and convicted, we will hang them all and bring about an era of true freedom and prosperity.

The clock is ticking, there time is running out. Hold fast to what you have learned through discovery and act on it. Knowledge without works is a sin.

In the end we win, they lose..

Now the (D)'s can sign on.

Now the (D)'s can sign on. Huffpo said so.
Audit the FED/End the FED.

Wow, did you read the comments?

People are really waking up.

Rick

Why do you not discuss what they are trying to replace the fed with, and move to the real story? You know the plans for America Rick, why not say them since you have decided to get involved in this?
We know about the fed, Rick so do you. You're 3 years too late.
Everyone knows about the fed Rick, now lets talk about international law that the media uses/refers to every time america takes a step- completely disregarding we have American laws that dictate to government what they can and can not do. Rick, you and Beck should be talking about the imf and world banks plans for America.
until then~ you are both misleads and everyone knows it.
