~ Newsleader.com: "Ron Paul's fruitless effort to end the Fed"

Ron Paul ran for president three times, served nearly a quarter-century in Congress, spawned a national movement and saw his son elected to the Senate.

But in his singular objective — to “End the Fed,” as the title of his book put it — the libertarian obstetrician from Texas failed. He didn’t even make a dent in it. In a valedictory Wednesday before Federal Reserve Chairman Ben Bernanke and his colleagues on the House Financial Services Committee, Paul raised the white flag.

Famous last words.

"But in his singular objective — to “End the Fed,” as the title of his book put it — the libertarian obstetrician from Texas failed."

As the foundations of our modern monetary system are crumbling and as Mr. Bernanke is the captain of this Titanic one can only surmise that Mr. Milbank is fast asleep in his Stateroom.

Dr. Paul has always said that the US will either manage the demise of the Federal Reserve System and the global central banking system of which it is now the central nexus, or it will collapse of its own accord with dire consequences. This has been the import of many of his speeches to Congress.

Although most of his colleagues have turned a deaf ear to his warnings many of the people at large have woken up to the fraudulent nature of their monetary system thanks in no small measure to Dr. Paul's work.

It has been my belief for the past five years that Ron Paul would be instrumental in bringing an end to the Fed and its machinations. This is the managed demise I referred to and the one that would be somewhat less traumatic for the people and the economy. I still hold to this belief and expect Dr. Paul to be elected as Republican nominee and as President in November to carry out his plans.

Mr. Milbank will just have to eat his words.

"Jesus answered them: 'Truly, truly, I say to you, everyone who commits sin is a slave to sin. The slave does not remain in the house forever; the son remains forever. So if the Son sets you free, you will be free indeed.'" (John 8:34-36)

Word Of The Day

Hmmm? Seems like that's the new Ron Paul word of the day... "fruitless"
Hah! Ron Paul has planted plenty of seeds that are sprouting well.

Like a noxious weed

This article (hit piece) seems to be getting picked up by compliant (presstitute) news outlets all over!??? Search it on google and see it's new life at cut'n'paste journals across America. ;-(

A good example of how the "news" is managed.

Thanks

for sharing, Barracuda. I refuse to click on that link--I will not help increase traffic to the writer of such nonsense...

What a POS!

I'm sure this DANA MILBANK was paid a good sum of money to write that drivel. These types of articles really grate my nerves. Grrr!

These kinds of articles

These kinds of articles really get on my nerves too, but then I'll think to myself, "Who is Dana Milbank?" Answer? A nobody, a "troll" for The Washington Post, someone skilled at writing opinions full of bark but completely absent of bite. Articles like Milbank's "Ron Paul's fruitless effort to end the Fed" are less credible than anything found in The Onion, but at least with The Onion, there are occasionally really funny things. "But in his singular objective — to 'End the Fed,' as the title of his book put it — the libertarian obstetrician from Texas failed." Wow! So many lies in one sentence! The fact is Ron Paul's works have not been fruitless endeavors or failed objectives unless one considers the awakening of millions of people in the U.S. and around the world to be something inconsequential and very temporary. If Dana Milbank's purpose was to quell the resolve of those who believe in liberty and want freedom from the tyranny of the central banks, then I can only say, speaking for myself, that the very opposite was the result: I am not going away. I'd bet that there are at least two or three others who feel the same way.
