The Hill: "It might not be a surprise to find a smile on the face of Federal Reserve Chairman Ben Bernanke when he appears before the House Financial Services Committee Wednesday. It looks to be the last time he will have to face off against Rep. Ron Paul (R-Texas).

While unforeseen events could always compel Bernanke's return to testify, his delivery of his semi-annual report on the nation’s monetary policy may mark the final time Paul will have the chance to take swings at his least favorite institution, as the lawmaker is retiring at the close of the rapidly dwindling session."

Congress is the key!

I agree with you that those CURRENTLY in Congress don't have the spine of Dr. Paul. That's only because the people don't have a spine and that's because they are mostly mislead, misinformed, underinformed, uninformed, neutralized and ignorant. But please remember that we only need to swing about 20,000 votes in the average Congressional race to defeat an incumbent and elect the challenger.
I, just today, did the analysis for Alabama's 2010 Congressional races where they were contested. 19,000 is only 3.46% of the eligible voting population. 19,000 X 435 districts is 8,265,000 million voters. Ron Paul's Facebook page shows 1,030,468 likes. That means that we each need to reach out and educate 7 others to vote along with us for liberty and restore the constitution. Did I say audit, then end the FED?

CLASSIC tactic to offer his time to Ron Paul AFTER apologizing for supporting the Iraq war. He now ses the error of his ways.

BRAVO Congressman Jones!!!

You CAN decentralize money: BITCOIN!

The first honest, decentralized currency for the 21st century is already here! Please look into it, and learn about, and DEBATE it!

I read most of the comments here, and noticed that people just don't know that there is a true, decentralized, HONEST currency that we can all choose to use: Bitcoin.

No, I do not own this, I am not a shareholder, or any kind of a beneficiary of your understanding of this new, crypto-currency. It is simply REVOLUTIONARY and, perhaps, the spike that will be driven through the heart of thieves, and manipulators, of humanity's greatest enemies, may they be misguided, or evil: CENTRAL BANKERS!

please research and learn about Bitcoin

Just plain 'Happy'about the direction the world is taking! Especially if we live to reach LEV [Longevity Escape Velocity]

The greatest man the world

The greatest man the world has ever known... He has set the example for how I want to lead my life, and I vow that Dr. Ron Paul's hard fight will not have been in vain. I am going to personally right these thieves and murderers of their wrongs, so help me God. If you are reading this Ron, I love you. You are the single greatest influence in my life and for as long as I live, I will think about you and the example you have set with every step I take. Thank you for being my hero.

With love,

Felony

Not Sure Dr. Paul Would Approve Of The Name Felony

What's the background behind it (if I may ask)?

Bernanke Couldn't Care Less

Because he is a puppet just doing his master's bidding. He knows that the congress is on HIS side and won't do anything about the corruption! DUH! Dr Paul gives him too much credit for having a soul!

skippy

Thank you Dr. Paul

A doctor
A veteran
A congressman
A great-grandfather
A presidential candidate
A Man of principle and integrity.

And his hobby is economics. HIS HOBBY!!!!

Amazing.

Thank you Dr. Paul.

A man whose faith I'd follow closer than most famous professors

I had to pause for a moment to consider just how pivotal this encounter really was; and IS!

What a great sacrifices Dr. Paul made over much of his life; to have to have to expended sooo many hours, sooo far away from his dear wife, family, and friends; to stand sooo many frequent times alone; and to have stayed the course he did so conscientiously, when the vast majority of his peers of both major parties failed to follow their oaths, even as THEY knew they ought to.

The Fed's monetary policies were weighed by Dr. Paul long before his first involvement in government. Among other great Austrian economists; he identified them as the greatest opponent of our Liberty in existence in America today.

Of course Bernanke must disagree on nearly every honest point; but when good folks listen to them both, they know which one to trust.

Find out just what any people will quietly submit to and you have the exact measure of the injustice and wrong which will be imposed on them. - Frederick Douglass

Walter Jones is a patriot!

Walter Jones is a patriot! And he is one of 2 members of the house (Justin Amash the other), to endorse Ron Paul for president. I have a ton of respect for Jones, and have ever since I heard him come out in strong oppostition of the Iraq/Afghanistan wars quite a few years ago, and admittiting on live TV that he was wrong to vote for their authorization.

we

will never see another spokesman like this for a long time.all i ask is please, Dr Paul, no matter if you win or lose, you will continue to guide us,stay in touch with us and show us what we need to win this battle against the crap we are putting up with.all we ask is advise. the movement will work if you tell us what to look out for.you know far more than we do, just advise us what to do next.
Most of us dont know how the system works. educate us. educate the world. all of us. dont leave us! we need you and love you. DR. Paul, you are my greatest hero that I ever had the honor to meet in my lifetime. i hope your movement generates another one even better and so on and so on.DR Paul! I salute you!

Didnt you hear him?

The Financial crisis is rolling towards the beginning. He.. isn't.. going.. ANYWHERE!

Don't count on it because Ron Paul will be the next POTUS.

Nice job, as always, Dr. Paul!

Dear God,

Please do not let this wonderful man who loves You and Our Country to slip through our fingers! Dr. Paul, we truly need you. We have so much to learn from you.

~Your perception becomes your reality~

Mark my words

Dr Paul, if you dont become president, we will make the country you dreamed of happen. There will be a day when the young people like myself of this generation look back and said, "this is where it all started, from a humble good man from texas who loved his country." I salute you Dr. Paul you have made me proud to call myself an american.

Texas has had a rough

Texas has had a rough political history. From LBJ, to Dallas and JFK, and obviously the Bush's. Speaking as a fourth generation Texan whose great, great, great grandfather founded Cruz, Tx deep in the brushy and cactus filled countryside of west Texas, I say thank you Dr. Paul. Even tho many of my family members feel I have "done lost it"...

My children we be well versed in your philosophy. They will remember.

God bless Ron Paul, the great State of Texas, and the United States of America!

Still only a weak argument from the Fed against a full audit

As of the yet, the Federal Reserve still does not have any sound argument for retaining their audit restrictions under US code, specifically they have not even presented an argument as to why they should be able to retain their audit limitations even if there is a time delay before the full audit is released.

A time delay completely undercuts their main argument that, "history proves that a independent central bank... blah, blah". They attempted the same argument against the "“Federal Reserve Accountability Act” of 1993.

They keep on saying that they undergo regular audits, however the US code clearly states what the audit can NOT include:

Audits of the Board and Federal reserve banks may NOT include—
(1) transactions for or with a foreign central bank, government of a foreign country, or non-private international financing organization;
(2) deliberations, decisions, or actions on monetary policy matters, including discount window operations, reserves of member banks, securities credit, interest on deposits, and open market operations;
(3) transactions made under the direction of the Federal Open Market Committee; or
(4) a part of a discussion or communication among or between members of the
Board and officers and employees of the Federal Reserve System related to clauses (1)–(3) of this subsection. (714 title 14 U.S. Code)

Ron Paul's audit bill basically removes these restrictions from US code.

The Federal Reserve has to date still not presented any sound argument as to why these audit limitations should remain in place for all time. The monetary "experts" can only produce an extremely weak argument against a full audit! The audit exemptions should be completely removed unless a sound argument for there retention is given, which these so called technocrats are apparently unable to do.

Walter Jones

seems genuinely sorrowful for voting for the Iraq War.

May the LORD bless you and keep you
May the LORD make His face shed light upon you and be gracious unto you
May the LORD lift up His face unto you and give you peace

He is

I won't say how I know but I do know. He's a strong Christian believer and he was convicted over that vote. I think he wrote over 8,000 letters (the last time I heard) to the families of soldiers, asking for their forgiveness for his vote. He's a good man, who also endorsed Paul for President.

8000 letters to soldiers' families? Wow!

I hadn't heard of Walter Jones either but I do want to learn more about him now. I don't know that I'd agree w/ his economics (I get the feeling he thinks the repeal of Glass-Steagall caused the financial crisis) but it certainly seems like the man has a conscience! That's more I can say for many in politics.

Plus he apparently endorsed Ron Paul for president (I hadn't heard that) and he yielded his time so Dr. Paul could speak to Bernanke one last time.
