Harry Reid was just playing the game

when he said this, when it came to the wheels hitting the road, he became a coward. Harry Reid is a coward, a backslider who screwed up somewhere and now will sell his country down the road to save his own ass. His voice even screams coward, let us not be surprised by his cowardice. March on and let these cowards shrivel by the roadside.

The R3volution requires action, not observation!!!!

Everyone should send this to Harry Reid


This should be sent to all Senate members in regards to Audit the Fed~

John 3:19-21
19 This is the verdict: Light has come into the world, but people loved darkness instead of light because their deeds were evil. 20 Everyone who does evil hates the light, and will not come into the light for fear that their deeds will be exposed. 21 But whoever lives by the truth comes into the light, so that it may be seen plainly that what they have done has been done in the sight of God.

Truth is treason in an empire of lies

Dirty money

Harry Reid was just bought by the Fed. Pawns, pawns, and more Pawns

Just Called His Office

Just called Reid's office and told them how thankful I am to have a Democrat so STRONGLY support transparency at the FED and based on comments Reid has made over the past 20+ years I expect him to support this bill 100% since he supports transparency at the FED. The guy on the other phone seemed a bit dumbfounded.

Bravo! The world is watching! Thanks Ben Swann!

Harry Reid cannot hide from this one! started to send this video to his constituents ;) please feel free to do the same!

Contact Harry Reid here...

WE the citizens MUST put pressure on Reid to allow a vote in the senate on Dr. Paul's bill to Audit the Federal Reserve.

You can write to Senator Reid here:

Here is what I wrote to him.
Feel free to use it if you write to him.
Dear Mr. Reid,

I understand there is a bill coming before the Senate to audit the Federal Reserve. (It was known in the House as H.R. 459).

The Senate version of the bill is S. 202.

I ask that you please allow this bill to be brought up for vote in the Senate as you have tried to do for years.

I also ask that you support this bill to Audit the Federal Reserve.

Thank you.
Here is his office in Washington D.C.

I understand he's a Mormon, like Mitt, as am I, so I wrote this:

It's funny that you don't have a menu item dedicated to The Fraudulent Reserve System!

That's right, it's not federal.

It has no reserves.

It's just a cartel of banks who've been impoverishing Americans and enriching themselves for 100 years.

It's the greatest scam, ponzi scheme of all time.

And yet you don't want to shine light into their darkness?!


You're a Mormon, I hear. Ever heard of the Gadianton Robbers?!? The prophets in the Book of Mormon identified these robbers, this secret combination, as THE cause of the fall of two great civilizations.

And they warn us to look out for them IN OUR DAY.

Well THEY are the families who own The Federal Reserve Banks.

They have conquered us.

Please reverse course, and sponsor this bill, and let's bring light into darkness.

Reid is Waiting for it to Blow Over

That's the strategy that politicians follow these days: wait until something more controversial happens and then proceed as usual. In other words, let it blow over and then act like it never happened. The news media are complicit with this, of course. We must keep this at the forefront of public discourse. Any ideas on how we can accomplish that so we get this to the Senate floor for a vote?

Simple explanation for the reversal

I believe the reason he no longer supports the audit is this... When he did support auditing the FED, it was with the understanding that the proposed legislation had zero chance of passing. Now that the chances of passing the legislation have increased to the point where his support for the measure actually matters, he has changed his position. He never truly supported a full audit of the FED... It was all just political grandstanding.

Benn Swann says

At about 3:20 Benn Swann says that the bill can be brought to the floor when the majority of the senate chooses.

I emailed Harry Reid and told

I emailed Harry Reid and told him he was a traitor.

Really great Reality Check!

I just called Reid's office, after holding for a while to speak to someone I was again told that Reid has not released a statement regarding this and they have no information on if or when he will.

Not surprisingly, it looks like he's not the only audit the FED flip-flopper without explanation:


How can you be that hypocritical?

Please send this video to everyone you know like I am going to do.

The only way to get Reid to do the right thing is through citizen pressure.

And even that might not be enough for this traitorous criminal.

Say one thing, do another.

Isn't that par for the course nowadays?

Remember when Senator Reid said taxes are voluntary???

Remember when Senator Harry Reid said taxes are voluntary. Reid maintained redistributive taxes are not a problem because people are not forced to pay taxes. He said taxation is voluntary???. How and why does Harry Reid get into this bind and make such a preposterous statement?

Jan Helfeld

I have an answer for you, Mr. Swann.

The answer is one of two things:

1) Harry Reid, like the vast majority of his colleagues, is a liar. He has been paid by the Fed Reserve, his master, to do its bidding. And he is simply following through on his commitment to his master.


2) He is being blackmailed. He's agreed to sex with whomever or whatever, and whenever he wants, and is granted immunity from prosecution and given the full monetary backing of the Fed for future campaigns, and for future political aspirations. In exchange he has been photographed, and THAT is the blackmail.

One of the two. And that's why he's not gonna tell you or his wife or family a damn reason has to WHY he's a hypocrite.

He has other family, right?

Aren't his other family members thinking individuals who can put 2+2 together and see that it isn't 5? I would think influencing those family members, in order to influence him, would be a top priority.

Note well that I am only saying to talk to them; it might also be useful to find out if any of them have gone missing, as that's a possible vector for his infection by the establishment... But I think your idea is probably more pertinent, because missing people tend to be a much greater cause for concern than mere photographic evidence of past events.

Kinda feels like History is on our side doesn't it?

We couldn't ask for a better situation, could we? Now more than ever people are understanding more about monetary policy and the Fed's role in all of it. Here we are with a historic vote that passed the Financial Committee and the House of Representatives. Such a thing has not happened for nearly 100 years. People have fought against the Fed and died. From Congressman Louis McFadden to Pres. John F. Kennedy. Now at 99 years since the birth of this colossal beast, we have the means to shine the light on this leech.

This bill is heading towards the Senate where the one who is in charge; the very one who supported an audit of the Federal Reserves for 25 yrs, is now the one who is opposing an audit of the Federal Reserves. And at perfect timing! He chose to be a complete hypocritical jackass in a time where we have youtube, blogospheric media, massive uprisings and a more informed youth.

Perhaps it's time to unleash the numbers of the Occupy movement, and combine it with the precise focus of the Liberty movement. We're already flooding Senator Reid's Phones and Messages, let's bring our forces together to pressure Capitol Hill.

Either he's been

Either he's been pressured/bribed by banks and their lobbyists

Or he's being an immature partisan scumbag and only opposing it because it was sponsored by a republican

Moral of the story? Harry Reid is still a douche

we finally found

the reason harry reid opposes the audit that he forgot he backed for so long is because democrats only have a memory span of about a day, so its not his fault guys...he doesnt even remember opposing it or his stupid ass comments on the bill will never be voted on....forgive him

Ha ha ha, phones busy and

Ha ha ha, phones busy and mailbox full...I think he may be taking a little flak for this!


This is complete BS. He was highly in favor of the bill for the last 25 years, and now he won't allow a vote on it?! Either he is blocking the bill because it was written by Republican's (Harry is a Dem I believe), or someone threatened or coerced him into blocking it. WTFFFF I hate politics! For the people my A$$. We might have to end congress before we end the Fed!

This is the "smoking gun".

This is not just another example of a hypocritical politician "flip-flopping" on an issue. It isn't even a simple case of a politician finally bowing to lobbyist pressure. This is the smoking gun that shows that we have a shadow government; that there really IS an international banking conspiracy calling the shots in a Washington D.C. Why else would Senator Harry Reid go against AGAINST the tide of popular opinion in an ELECTION YEAR?!

He (and the Democrats) have nothing to lose and everything to gain POLITICALLY by letting this bill pass. This bill is quite in harmony with their party's image as the defender of the little guy against big business.

In fact, given Reid's documented record of "supporting" Fed transparency, he could probably even steal credit from Ron Paul and the rest of the Republicans for its passage. At the very least he could use it to show how the Democrats are reaching "across the aisle" in the spirit of bipartisan cooperation.

Obviously, it was quite all right for him to TALK about auditing the Fed when there was no chance of such a bill actually passing. In fact it suited the Conspiracy's goal of maintaining the illusion that the American people were still ultimately in control of the Federal Reserve System.

Harry Reid's bosses have told him that this bill must NOT PASS; that it must not even be DEBATED. And it is also finally crystal clear that his "bosses" are NOT the American people.
