No it won't

Auditing the Fed will get his butt fired.

Keepin' it real.

They may bring back hanging just for those bankers and him.

You know they are going to resist putting there head in the noose.

Ok Ben

Ben was doing just fine at collapsing western civilization already. This is just the cry of a dying beast.


actually, if the FED is not ended THEY will collapse the economy and destroy the dollar. of course, that is what they want! So, they can kill off the current scam and start a new one that gives them even more power and control. Lying Bastard!

What a lying crook.

Bernanke has only one thing in mikd and that is looking out for the interests of himself and all his central bankers.

He has admitted that if the Congress (through the GAO) finds out the mischiefs they're up to then the consequences of our knowing would be cataclismic.

What does that say about what they're up to?

"We have allowed our nation to be over-taxed, over-regulated, and overrun by bureaucrats. The founders would be ashamed of us for what we are putting up with."

Awww, isn't it cute? He

Awww, isn't it cute? He doesn't want his economy to collapse. That's precious.

Well that's the point

Isn't it Bernanke? We've reached a point in global monetary policy where things have no choice but to reset; Ben Bernanke may believe that we can inflate the currency forever, but even I don't believe that to be the case. He has to know whats coming, and is just delaying it with the only power available to him.

I'm not sure all of us are prepared for a monetary reset. This is the largest bubble in the history of the world, and its on the verge on popping.

We live in interesting times.

criminal charges

First, Audit the Fed
Second, Criminal charges against Bernanke

Once the treason of their $14 Trillion 0.01% Int Rate funds that were only offered to selected groups... criminal charges should be brought forth.

What would be best if the money would be returned and set on fire. At least that will somewhat help this gross distortion of the money supply.

Reading between the lines,

Reading between the lines, what Bernanke is saying is that there is so much corruption, cronyism, manipulation, misuse, abuse and distortion that if it is exposed people would entirely lose faith in the monetary system. After all, if the reverse of that were true and things they were doing were adding strength, honesty, impartiality, then an audit of their activities would strengthen confidence in the monetary system.

The FED Will Collapse Anyway...

Here's the dealio - this economic system is going to crash whether we like it or not...


That is not my opinion. That is FACT.

The Audit will bring on the collapse, and if our nation simply allows the market to FLUSH THE SHITE FROM THE SYSTEM, WE WILL BE BACK ON TRACK WITHIN 24 MONTHS.

The only people who benefit from the extended misery are the banksters, lame sleeze media and poli-trick-ains...

Just sayin'...


It would collapse the FED's big fat wallet and secret deals

and probably lead to fraud charges brought against them.
It would be very bad for the Feds health.
All the secret funds they have stolen from America and sent
to other central banks.
Would not want to be in there shoes when a real audit happens.

haha Its "Fraudral Reserve" corp

finally they admit it.

It would be "destructive" to the currency and the economy... Uh, hello?

Have you checked the destruction wreaked under the existing set-up? How's the currency and economy been doing under you guys so far.


Seems legit.

Nothing to see here, just don't expose us or the economy collapses, that's all. Carry on.



It would show that you are crooks and evryone would lose faith in you fiat scheme ... Oh Ben they have ping pong in the penitentiary.

It's time! Rand Paul 2016!

"Truth, Justice, and the American Way!"

Ben plays the blame game.

Tag Congress, you're it.

Free includes debt-free!

The FED is just a company with a crappy product

The only economy to undergo problems is the one run on valueless printed paper and 1s and 0s in a computer. The Audit will reveal a collapsing system on its last legs, loans and debt adding up to an amount people will have strokes over. That's what it'll reveal and then some.

What's that Ben? You have a website? STFU. You're going to jail!

I love the way he acts as if there is stability in the dollar and the US financial markets. Don't be afraid of the collapse because the dollar has been collapsing since 1913.

who can watch this

and not feel their blood boil?

I f everyone finds out we're all crooks.....

I guess that's his logic.
"If everyone finds out we're all crooks..."
confidence will be lost.

Actually, it would probably

Actually, it would probably do the opposite Ben. We would find out where you've all been hiding the real money!

If you walk blindly through life, you will run into a lot of walls.

Ben, Ben, Ben. You can't

Ben, Ben, Ben. You can't fool us or scare us anymore. The only thing that would collapse just by looking at some numbers on paper is the world wide criminal bankster/corporate syndicate that has stolen our money, is trying to steal our elections, and wants to take our guns away and run tanks in our streets.

Logic would suggest that once the criminal mob stops stealing our money, the economy of We The People will prosper. Like Iceland. They are throwing the bankster bums in jail. Ha!

That's okay with me.

As long as they publish the addresses of some of these banksters first.

These banksters need to get a visit.



After he said "it'll collapse

After he said "it'll collapse the economy", I wish the congressman would have said, "and why is that?" I would have paid money to hear his response that that follow up.

Questioning dire,

Questioning dire, unsubstantiated statements is strictly verboten.

It's funny, by saying "it'll

It's funny, by saying "it'll collapse the economy", he's ADMITTED they're doing wrong. There is no way an audit could cause a crash on it's own unless it had some very 'disheartening' info and 'dirty secrets'. He acts like they're a "covert operation", who is afraid of someone leaking a hitlist(now that I think about it, that would fit, the hit list would have "Goldmann Sachs, Jp Morgan, Citibank" and more on it)

With Barney Frank and Chris Dodd

retiring rather than continuing to receive their routine graft and bribe payments, I suspect they are getting out while the getting is good. The Bernack would be wise to take a hike to...because when people are hungry they will do things that they normally wouldn't do...I won't elaborate.

"Necessity is the plea for every infringement of human freedom. It is argument of tyrants. It is the creed of slaves." William Pitt in the House of Commons November 18, 1783

Some here would have us believe we already do.

Obviously Bernanke knows we don't fully audit them.
