Ben Swann: "Do We really need to Audit the Federal Reserve?" Cites Jekyll Island, ON Air!

There goes Ben, again... doing what someone on the TeeVee ain't supposed be doing: cover REAL issues of significance!

Reality Check: Do We Really Need To Audit The Federal Reserve?


Published on Jul 31, 2012 by BenSwannRealityCheck

Ben Swann Reality Check takes a look at history and present activities of the Federal Reserve Bank and whether the Fed needs to be audited.


I'd submit that this is the most important episode of Reality Report that he has ever done: he actually goes into the founding of the Fed.Res., HOW its counterfeiting operation actually works, cites G. Ed. Griffin's Creature from Jekyll Island, publicly on MSM, for the 1st time!!!

Shocked!!! Shocked, I tell you!

Ben, watch your back, brother.

Now, you're on

http://youtu.be/1b_gmO7AJS4 list!

Show him some love, y'all!

He's now gonna need our support, more than ever, just like Dr. Ronald Ernest Paul, and ALL fellow r3VOL and InfoWarriors!

Mainstream Reporter Tells The Truth About Audit The Fed

Mainstream Reporter Tells The Truth About Audit The Fed And The Creation Of The Federal Reserve

When someone in the mainstream media goes out on a limb to tell the truth, then the rest of us should go out of our way to applaud that effort. Reporter Ben Swann of Fox 19 in Cincinnati is one of the few local television reporters in the United States that consistently tackles the tough issues.

What in the world would this country look like if we had hundreds of other real journalists such as Ben Swann that were willing to tackle these kinds of issues head on?

Do You Want to Support Ben Swann and Keep Him on the Air?

A message to everyone who supports Ben Swann (he's a hero of mine): Please don't just watch his videos on YouTube. The advertising money will go to some random person.

Instead go straight to the source! The link below links directly to the reality check main website on Fox 19. That way the ad money goes directly to his station, and the owners get a MUCH better idea about just how many people watch him (due to the large number of website hits)!


You can also sign up for the email list so that they send you an email every time there is a new reality check. This way, if the station faces increasing pressure to cancel his show, they will be making enough extra money from ad revenue that they will reconsider.

If you really want to support Ben Swann, please do it this way!

*Jaw Drop* Dude.... How does

*Jaw Drop*

Dude.... How does he do it! Sure we've got Dylan Ratigan going on MSNBC talking about the FED, but Ben..... can name names!!! It's amazing, and he still finds himself alive the next morning!! @____@

Balls the size of a Kahuna Burger (thats big)
Next time end your reality check with the words "My name is Ben Swann and I will never commit suicide". Also dont fly in any FOX 19 Helicopters.

Keep up the good work

Blessed are the peacemakers

WOW, awesome reporting!

Audit the Fed; then end it!

By the way, if anyone is ever traveling up or down the coast of Georgia on I-95, near Brunswick, make sure you make a detour and visit Jekyll Island. It is a beautiful Island and is (obviously) a very historic place. Be sure to check out Jekyll Books, which sells copies of 'The Creature from Jekyll Island'. What better place then to buy such a book!

This Just In:

Ben Swann tells the truth live on air - US News Agencies are united in outrage.

This guy, I love him.

platonically, he's hansome but still platonically...

this video

gives me a shot of adrenaline

Freedom! Forever!

Great video, and I know a lot

Great video, and I know a lot of folks don't know the history of the Fed's creation, but I thought it was pretty well documented. Why is it such a big deal that he mention it on air? I assumed anyone would if they were talking about the Fed's origins.

Marry me Ben Swann! Finally

Marry me Ben Swann! Finally a news reporter who is spot on with his reporting and the topics he chooses to cover.

I must confess

that while Ben is available locally twice a day here in Cincinnati, I seldom turn him on because of my preferred, self-imposed and restricted television viewing regimen.

Ben is such a blessing in a news media arena that is devoid of real journalists but is unfortunately enveloped by a curse. He's a relative prophet without honor in our household and many others who have awoken to the surreptitious indoctrination coming through the tube.

I guess it's true that sometimes you really don't know what you've got until it's gone. I only hope, for the sake of the liberty movement, that Ben is with us until the last person on earth is off the plantation and free of their chains of enslavement.

If there are still electronic communications after the fall of the empire, I will most likely turn to Ben for his insights and advice during the transition to a more anarchic, decentralized and freer world.

Wow, I get a little rush just thinking about such a day.

That was good.

May have been the best Reality Check ever.

please everyone go to the

federal reserve wikipedia page


and try to edit in jeckyl island history. They wont let you.

At least there are two

At least there are two official Fed documents that acknowledge the Fed was created on Jekyll Island:

The second one even mentions G. Edward Griffin, Ron Paul, and Creature from Jekyll Island

Herman Cain worked for Kansas City Federal Reserve!!

That's why he came in here, to try to steal Ron Paul's thunder.

WOW!!!!!!!!!!! my man crush


my man crush on ben swann couldn't be larger!

Ben's Got A Pair of Elephant Balls...Wow!!

He actually mentioned Jeykel Island and the principle characters who crafted the FED..

Ben, you are a very good investigative journalist...A very rare bird indeed these days..

Tell your mom for me she did a very good job home schooling..

History should be evaluated carefully.

The Fed founders were business monopolies in addition to being bankers. Their main goal was steady credit for their businesses without the risk of running on their banks. Prior to the FED, THEY were the ones who lobbied for gold standard (!!!). It is AGAINST the FED founders' intentions to be on FIAT money, allow president to appoint the FED board and force the FED to take care of the government YEARLY deficit voted by American people via Congress.

It is government power that hurts economy the most.

If we concentrate all our attention on the FED and 5-6 banks, we wont get too far. France (1970's) and USSR (1921) expelled private bankers, but to their sheer disappointment, they did not get more freedom or prosperity. If the government did no have deficits, bailouts, FDIC, fixed conversion rate, regulations, tariffs, then the Fed (being on gold standard) wont be that of a problem. It is problem as the government FACILITATOR. In terms of credit expansion, fractional banking (which tied into the FED & FIAT) has a bigger impact. And if we to believe Murray Rothbard (I would be careful here), then only commercial banks are the problem and only those who lend to businesses of high order products (again, I am not with Rothbard on this.)

P.S. Therefore, fight against the current FED is a good thing to do (ironically since it is NOT what the Fed founders intended it to be.) Like for retarded, there are simplified textbooks, for anti-Semites and weak-minded, a simplified version about greedy bankers & Rothschilds is more digestible.


Their main goal was to use their wealth and power to influence the government to give them a monopoly on creating money. The problem is not fiat, the problem is the monopoly enforced by government and the only solution is an open competition of currency.

Holy Shinola!

Watch your back is right! He better reality check his car for explosives the next few times before he starts it. He'll either end up fired or in an "accident" after this one. I hate to sound like a paranoid freak, but I'll be praying for this guy's safety. Unfortunate things tend to happen to people that challenge and try to expose TPTB.

if they touch one hair on this man

Then some shit is gonna go down, time for these NWO fckers to FEAR US. Seriously if he goes down with as much as a cold then the mitias need to start closing some shit down... thats what the 2nd is for.

I agree with you...

Ben ... time to check behind you in front of you and beside you. Only other person high on the Feds xxxxxxxxx list is Ron Paul. They branded Paul as a kook a long time ago to hide behind their black curtain. Now Ben on a major tv station attacks them in showing the truth behind their theft. David Rockefeller isn't going to like this one bit. My prayers are with you Ben. Be safe my man!

Yes the head of J.P. Morgan also sits on the Federal Reserve Board. Isn't that a crock of s*&t? Hey buddies give me a couple bill. I'm going out on the town tonight. I'm running a little short. Thieves!!!!!!!!!!

It's time! Rand Paul 2016!

"Truth, Justice, and the American Way!"

Be honest,

would you be at peace if members of the FED board were government clerks appointed prior to a state municipal bank? If not, all your argument is false.


But i would be at peace if legal tender laws were lifted and we could watch the FED disolve into the pages of history as the 100 year long robbery.

I always use Bens Reality

I always use Bens Reality Check to try to inform the sleeping ones. He's one of the only reputable news sources out there and people will listen to him.

Recall REID

If he is not going to do his job he needs to be recalled ASAP Send a message to all those other worthless scum that get a check for doing nothing for the people. His finances need to be investigated too,he smells like rotten fish from here.

Holy smokes that was freakin' EPIC!

Ben is a champion among men. Brilliant piece.

Thank you Ben!!!!



Watch this dry yet astonishing Dr. Robert Beck cancer treatment lecture on Google Video - search "Suppressed Medical Discovery" - http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MkiX0jJJozk

Ben Swann is an American Hero

Keep the pressure on Harry Reid. Call him and ask WHY! 202-224-3542

Just in case you missed it

Call Hypocritical Harry at 202-224-3542 and ask why after supporting an audit for YEARS now that he has the power to make something happen he chooses to do nothing!

Just WHAT are THEY hiding?

It is up to US to find out!

To arms! To arms! The Redcoats are coming!
