Bank of Israel Governor Stanley Fischer Nominated for Number Two Spot at the Federal Reserve

The rushed campaign to insert Stanley Fischer straight from his position leading Israel’s central bank into the number two spot at the Federal Reserve has allowed little time for research into the appointee’s career or for informed public debate about his record. Like the failed recent Obama administration-Israel lobby pincer move to ram approval for U.S. military strikes on Syria through Congress, avoiding such due diligence through velocity may actually be the only means for successful Senate confirmation.

Some of Fischer’s accomplishments—from co-authoring a seminal textbook on macroeconomics to handling economic crisis at the IMF have—not surprisingly—been recalled by his many supporters. Other doings that shed light on Fischer’s controversial attributes—such as overhauling how U.S. aid and trade packages are delivered to Israel—have been mostly ignored. Appointing an openly dual Israeli-American citizen into the most important central bank in the world could be a watershed moment. While the doors of federal government have long swung open for Israel-lobby appointees focusing most—if not all—their energies on advancing the interests of a foreign state, any who were actually Israeli dual citizens have traditionally kept that a closely-guarded secret. Fischer’s long-term boosters, including the American Israel Public Affairs Committee (AIPAC), likely want to accustom Americans to openly dual citizens circulating between top roles in the U.S. and Israeli governments. A closer examination of Fischer reveals that average Americans have good reason to oppose his appointment, because his lifelong achievements for Israel have imposed high costs and few benefits to the United States while making peace more difficult to achieve.

And what are each of you

And what are each of you doing to promote the idea that crypto-currencies are a viable alternative to the central banking madness? Even if you don't completely believe in it, spreading the word undermines support for back room secret government and unconstitutional activities.

The "no entangling alliances" warning by Ron Paul goes both ways also.

This analysis by

the good Brother Nathaneal gives us a good perspective on what this appointment means http://brothernathanaelchannel.com/watch_video.php?v=1028
This quote of former Israeli Prime Minister, Menachem Begin, should explain what all non-Judaics are up against, that is instilled in most all Jews, whether followers of Judaism (Torah and Talmud) or not. “Our race is the Master Race. We are divine gods on this planet. We are as different from the inferior races as they are from insects. In fact, compared to our race, other races are beasts and animals, cattle at best. Other races are considered as human excrement. Our destiny is to rule over the inferior races. Our earthly kingdom will be ruled by our leader with a rod of iron. The masses will lick our feet and serve us as our slaves.”

Fischer’s candidacy-to-Senate-confirmation

Let's hope Rand delays the confirmation of Yellen so that more public attention can be given to this appointment they are tying to fast track!

"Media reports initially indicated that Fischer’s candidacy-to-Senate-confirmation would proceed on greased skids—with no Senate debate—taking only a week so that the pair could quickly take over the Fed in January. However, the Senate concluded its 2013 business without taking up the matter. The earliest date the measure could be put up for a vote is January 6, 2014."

"This rushed approach has meant relatively little reporting on the deeper implications of having an openly dual Israeli-American citizen a heartbeat away from Fed chairmanship. That is unfortunate, since Israel and its U.S. supporters have many hidden reasons for wanting stronger influence at the Fed that they would likely prefer not to discuss."

Something's fishy

And a Fischer appointment to the Fed doesn't meet the smell test.

So, where are the Israeli-firsters,

who usually swarm like bees to tell us how much we hate jews. They'll tell you how great an idea this appointment is, and what an anti-semite you are. "We're all a bunch of Nazis". Now maybe they'll stay away. LOL

It's a one world banking oligarchy.

There is an obvious conflict of interest but then again what isn't at the Federal Reserve.

RP would say "End the Fed"

Un-Effing believable. I used to think Israel was the 51st state.

But in fact, the U.S. is the defacto 2nd state of Israel.

If you think that's hyperbole, consider how much power the money-exchangers have.

ALL the power...THAT'S how much power.

"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."
-Ron Paul

but now the US seems to be

Israel's second state. ______

With all due respect, I will no longer be a voting prostitute for Constitution rejecting harlots.

The zio Rothschild counterfit false debt, crime bank

Of course would require a Zio IsUnReal stooge to be installed at the helm.

When will enought people reject counterfit, false debt, curency?

We do not need slave script and we do not need the goods sold in the slave stores where the script is required.


Can't we find Just an American to do this Job?

Instead of an Israeli!!! PLEASE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!



Remember we couldn't even find an American (business) to to Obamacare website. In fact we couldn't even find an American to be the president.

Merry Christmas from the city of david where goys are grown

hand picked, and misrepresented far from their own indigenous lore.

Xmas marks the spot where bethleham turns to the west bank and david rolls out red carpets of palestinian blood to materialize lore in gentile cives and senators in the order of extolling a righteous story

Whatever it takes for birth writers to pass over their own self in spite of others

if they ever looked in the mirror they would seem as silly as a snake devouring itself... and when you turn in disgust they would tell you it is a halo for the righteous

If I want to follow the word of Christ, I do so without cause of action bearing any ritual resemblance to a false king; there is no man-like Gods only God-like men diluting law to save a face in God we trust.

It is time to write with the real christ and start moving towards a de-mythologized christmas entrained by the subjective holy spirit setting us all apart to quicken our spirits for spring... we are now coming together to witness God in redemption of the annual cycle of light so that spring forms light around the self-evidence of individual spirit.

.... as charlie brown would say, Good Grief.

A true flower can not blossom without sunlight and a true man can not live without love.

Another zionist

"dual-citizen" put in charge of Americas money? Big surprise there!

"If this mischievous financial policy [greenbacks], which has its origin in North America, should become endurated down to a fixture, then that government will furnish its own money without cost. It will pay off its debts and be without debts. It will hav

If Americans were ever polled on it

"If Americans were ever polled on it—and they never are—the majority who now object to increasing aid to Israel would also likely object to quasi-governmental and governmental positions being staffed by people who—by citizenship or sheer strength of identity politics—are primarily occupied with advancing Israeli interests rather than those of the United States. It is obvious that the real reason AIPAC and its economic luminaries such as Fischer never substantiate any of the advertised benefits the U.S.-Israel “special relationship” delivers to America in return for all of the costs is simple—there simply aren’t any."
