Ron Paul's push for full Fed audit slated for House vote

One of Rep. Ron Paul's (R-Texas) pet issues will hit the spotlight this July, as House Republican leaders plan to hold a vote on authorizing a top-to-bottom audit of the Federal Reserve.

In a memo to Republican members sent Friday, House Majority Leader Eric Cantor (R-Va.) unveiled the GOP majority's plan for the months leading up to the fall elections. Among a "busy legislative agenda," including bills tackling healthcare, domestic energy production and taxes, Paul's 300-word measure has carved out a spot on the docket.

The bill is currently pending before a House Oversight subcommittee, but has garnered a substantial number of sponsors — 227 in all, including several committee chairmen. And while Fed-bashing became a popular activity on the GOP primary campaign trail, not all the bill's backers are Republicans. Several Democrats, such as Reps. Peter DeFazio (Ore.) and Dennis Kucinich (Ohio), are among those pushing for a Fed audit.

Greece

Might leave the European Union, as Alex Jones said they break away from the EU and they monetize their debt, which means they actually take their debt back to what they really owed the country will prosper. The EU has been very bad for Europe. But the biggest fear of the elites is that Greece will leave the EU or get kicked out, they will prosper in a few years and this will go viral all over the rest of the EU block. More countries will want out when they see how better off Greece is out from under the boot of the EU. They will all want to break away from the globalism. It has to happen here as well. If this bill passes I think it may just start the chain of events here, I think it will happen even if it doesn't. But it will take a bit longer. Alex Says Greece only owes about 9-10% of the debt they are told they owe.

Make no mistake.

The primary thing this is about is POWER.

A full audit chops down the all mighty federal reserve several notches.

What is discovered will be very important and interesting of course, but it's secondary IMO.

The Can Of Worms Is Set To Spill Folks

Our chants cannot be ignored any longer or else the American people will soon be convinced the entire congress and MSM is bought and paid for... Now they couldn't let us think that now could they??? I know allot of people still don't want to believe it but if they vote this down, everyone will know it must be true since a down vote would obviously mean congress is trying to protect the World Banking Cartel, and unfortunately if this is the case - I hate to say it may only bring us closer to possible civil war considering everything else and as the people are waking up and seeing the writing on the wall.

Folks, This is nothing less than a corporatist fascism takeover of our country and we must fight with every bit of might we have to defeat them and their pathetic Agenda 21 designed to drive our country into poverty and ultimately enslave us due to the fraud while stealing from the people...

Protests everywhere are starting to fight back at the police when they start beating people with their sticks... Raucous GOP Caucuses becoming more common around the country... NATO protests, Occupy protests, Bilderberg protests planned... Student protests!!! Oathkeepers are now starting to be at the protests watching and warning police. We must keep chanting at every rally, every gathering, every caucus - Our Words Are Powerful!!!

Call all of our congressmen and congresswomen, let their staff pick up the phone, they say hello and we don't even say hello, just say "END THE FED!!!"

Another fear I think that has recently triggered a more serious consideration of this audit bill could also be due to the widespread bank runs going on in Europe that the MSM is trying not to report but whereas the word is spreading too fast and getting here quickly as well... I myself don't tend to keep much money in the bank at any given time anyway, but the scare is in - people are just fed up with the fed and have decided to just withdraw their money... LOL oh what a nice response we have so quickly...

The book "Dishonest Money" by Joseph Plummer states in the first few pages of his book "One of the greatest threats a bank faces is known as a 'bank run.' It should be known that if banks actually ran a legitimate business,'bank runs' wouldn't be a problem. But they don't run a legitimate business and so bank runs are a problem..." So here we have it folks - this is one of their biggest weaknesses... Hmmm very interesting, We The People could be on to something here... Europe is ahead in the game LOL!!!

-LibertyG ... 2 Corinthians 2:16-17 "To some we are a scent of death leading to death, but to others, a scent of life leading to life. And who is competent for this? For we are not like the many who make a trade(for profit) but as those with sincerity...

and we really need to take a good close look at anyone

who votes against an audit. Personally I think it'll be voted down, and if it miraculously passes it'll be a squeaker.

It passed the House in 2010

but the Senate watered it down.

We need to pressure the Senate so co-sponsor and support Rand Paul's S. 202, the Federal Reserve Transparency Act of 2011.

Hopefully these peoples ballz don't shrink on voting day;

and hopefully these Congressman and Senators don't get a manila envelope in the mail with black and white photos of the wife and kids with a note that reads:

"You will not vote to audit the Fed, or else"

Keep pushing forward, the time has come to put this beast back in the box and bury it forever.

Great News!

But I am nervous on what will come to light. In the long run, it will be good, really good, but watch out for the short term effects. What will happen next? Lawsuits? Impeachments? Convictions? Suicides?

We need help in the SENATE

There are only 21 Senators on record of supporting the Audit the Fed bill in the Senate (S 202). That's only 21% of the Senate.

PLEASE contact your Senators and urge them to co-sponsor Rand Paul's S. 202 for a FULL audit of the Federal Reserve.

Find our if your Senator is a co-sponsor here:

It's up to us to spread the news. Fruits are maturing from the long struggle Dr. Paul has gone through over the past 30+ years. We need to spread the good news: Dr. Paul's message is Winning!

Ron Paul for Freedom!!!

Knowledge is the currency of the Universe.-
Giorgio A. Tsoukalos

Ron Paul's said it all along

if the Federal Reserve could just be audited, lawmakers, and people alike would wake up to what incredible crazy system these banksters get away with. This one item should be insisted on by Paul at the convention along with some real oversight to ensure they don't blow him off down the road.

Awesome news!!! Looking

It's been a long process.

I'm from Oregon & DeFazio's

I'm from Oregon & DeFazio's Congressional district. he is a democrat but seems to be very pro-civil liberties. He often supports Ron Paul's bills, he also votes against war.

he also doesn't take congressional pay raises & drives a beater car & scoops up poop at the Eugene Celebration parade every year.

every time i email him asking him to audit the fed, vote for NDAA amendments/repeal, vote against CISPA/SOPA/etc, vote against the TSA, etc he writes me back a personal email about how strongly he agrees.

I know he's running against Robinson who Dr. Paul has endorsed. I'm interested in any opinions folks from Oregon (or elsewhere) have on DeFazio vs Robinson this year (principles & voting record).

Defazio has treated us well

Nobody is perfect, but Defazio is pretty darn good. He even voted against the Patriot Act since the first time it came up right after 9/11.

Robinson's son (using same platform as Robinson) ran against Defazio in the Democratic Primary this year and lost by a landslide. Defazio got 90% of vote. It was nice for the young Robinson to get involved but the downside is that it kept Democrats from switching parties in the primary to vote for Ron Paul.

In 2010 DeFazio beat Robinson Sr. 54-44
In 2008 the Republicans didn't even bother trying.
In 2006 Defazio got 62% of vote. and so on.. 1996 he had 66%

Not sure what the latest redistricting will do. I will take a good look at Robinson, but I am generally not inspired to get rid of good people for someone unknown. I have no idea if he will be able to stand up when in Washington. People tend to change when they get in office.

Sorry for late response....just saw this when googling for defazio

I've written to him as well

I've written to him as well regarding issues like the NDAA, and received similar response. I'm new to the political scene and could be naive, but he seems like a good person. And I have heard about Art Robinson being libertarian minded so I really can't say I have a strong opinion between the two... maybe we can just hope that there are two very good politicians to choose from and it's a win-win situation for the people and whoever doesn't take the position can find their niche for the time being and try again next time.

That's a majority!

227 / 435 = 52%

...the question is, will all the sponsors actually attend and vote for the bill, and what will the Senate do?

"Alas! I believe in the virtue of birds. And it only takes a feather for me to die laughing."

Is there a matching Senate

Is there a matching Senate Bill?

Yes...

...and guess which Kentucky Senator introduced it? : )

http://www.opencongress.org/bill/112-s202/show

It has 20 co-sponsors.

Thanks patriot

I 'm asking myself the same question.
We all remember what happened the last time.
That is why we need to put immense pressure on these people.

Agree LL

This is possibly one of the biggest single things we can do before getting President Paul elected!!!!! Ending the Fed would really shrink Washington down to size.

Thanks Rollo

You said it well.
And this is an issue where we activists can make a real impact.
Calls emails etc.
