The Federal Reserve Is Why You Can't Afford Food And Gas

Gary Gibson

The Federal Reserve is supposed to promote full employment and stable prices, yet its actions cause jobs to disappear and prices to rise. This should come as no big surprise, at least it shouldn't if you're not inclined to think government intervention is either desirable or productive. The Fed is government intervention at its purest: the central bank with the legal monopoly on the creation of new money.

The Fed has essentially one trick. It can legally conjure new money whenever it wants. With this one trick it manages to force interest rates down. Mainly it lends the new money to the U.S. government. That is to say, it buys government bonds.

The artificial demand the Fed creates by throwing billions of dollars at government bonds has a depressive effect on interest rates. But these lower interest rates are not a result of those free market forces we champion at the Whiskey Bar. Rather, they are the result of the machinations of a government-chartered bank with a monopoly on the issuance of currency.

The Fed likes to give mandates. Not follow them! UN-money?

"Federal Reserve is supposed to promote full employment and stable prices, yet its actions cause jobs to disappear and prices to rise."

UN-employment is artificial result of artificial UN-money.

UN-stable price is artificial result of too much UN-money.

Watch official UN sanctions allow UN-artificial war to be funding with UN-money funded by the Printers-That-Be (PTB).

When a 98 year old Fed gang purse swipes for 21¢, should a 200 year old lady politely refuse to be violated anymore?
21¢ Swipe Fee? Steal small change? Audacity of little hope? 06/29/2011

Should she just declare bankruptcy? Was it her fault all along?

    Or was it officialdom, all along the watchtower?

The Fed audits banks often. It refuses independent audit of itself.

Would the Fed fight a 200 year old lady that just wanted her purse bank? What if it where now empty? Would the Fed fight this poor lady?

It's not "government intervention," though...

because the Federal Reserve is not part of the government. It's a private business, above the government, above all people.

Governmental Circumvention. Circumvents Government.

"... because the Federal Reserve is not part of the government. It's a private business, above the government, above all people."

    Circumvention. According to the Fed is as you wrote. They lie. They lie in wait.

The Fed was set up by themselves. They lay claim to an act of unanimous consent. Their unpopular act was akin to a ramrod through a mystical process that immaculately created a beast the eve before Christmas Eve, 1913. We have been paying their price ever since.

Their claim is not protected by patent. No land patent. No invention patent. The claims is on your future wealth... Should you give it to them?

Should our US Treasury print Fed Reserve Notes for them?

Should they pin their $108 Billion notes to Turbo Timmy's shirt when he walks down the street to the IMF?

Wait a minute.

If the Fed is private then you can compete with it just like any other corporation.

The key is that the Fed is given monopoly power by the government. It's the government that threatens violence against anyone who tries to compete with the Fed.

The Fed is private but all competition is outlawed by government.

You too can print "legal tender." It is legal! The Woz! Printer.

Steve Wozniak prints $2 Bill "Legal Tender." Fed Fails w/ $100. 03/01/2011

This is not an April Fool's joke. Steve Steve Wazniak, Founder of Apple Computer, does print "Legal Tender" $2 Notes. Approved by US Treasury agents. Printing 15 years. Legally.

You can too!

You may get a jump start. Purchase some of his pre-printed "legal tender" $2 notes. He offers them for sale on sheets 4 $2 notes @ just $5. Yes, you may have $8 dollars printed for only $5.

End the Fed!

The primary issue of our day and in fact the last century, and in fact, a KEY issue back in the days when our righteous Founding Fathers fought Alexander Hamilton and the European money powers he represented.

"It is well enough that people of the nation do not understand our banking and monetary system, for if they did, I believe there would be a rEVOLution before tomorrow morning." - Henry Ford

Well said!

It's such a simple concept, but the implications are so disgusting, most people cannot grasp what's going on; it's at odds with their whole interpretation of reality.

Well... Loosely, yes. Loose change.

Here are forum posts from my notes that are more specific to points raised. The Fed is a convoluted web practiced in the art of deception.

We must do more than watch our wallets. Our wealth is spent before it arrives as a green promissory note "legal tender" in our wallet.

Your three sentences say so much! Tom Robbins explains ...

"The enemy of the black is not the white. The enemy of capitalist is not communist, the enemy of homosexual is not heterosexual, the enemy of Jew is not Arab, the enemy of youth is not the old, the enemy of hip is not redneck, the enemy of Chicano is not gringo and the enemy of women is not men.
We all have the same enemy.
The enemy is the tyranny of the dull mind.
The enemy is every expert who practices technocratic manipulation, the enemy is every proponent of standardization and the enemy is every victim who is so dull and lazy and weak as to allow himself to be manipulated and standardized."
~ by Tom Robbins

And never forget, “Humans, despite our artistic pretensions, our sophistication and many accomplishments, owe the fact of our existence to a six-inch layer of topsoil and the fact that it rains.”

Tom Robbins quote:

I believe in Nothing, therefore Everything is sacred.

Here's another one you may be familiar with ...

New Tom Robbins fan here

I had never heard of him before, but I love all those quotes!

Chris Floyd's observation is dead on, too.

Thanks!

Most

of his books are fantastic. I personally enjoy "Fierce Invalids Home From Hot Climates", "Jitterbug Perfume", and "Still Life with Woodpecker".

"If this mischievous financial policy [greenbacks], which has its origin in North America, should become endurated down to a fixture, then that government will furnish its own money without cost. It will pay off its debts and be without debts. It will hav
