Wisdom is Peaceable..

That is what I love about Dr. Paul.

His ability to confront with wisdom.

One Voice, One Vision, One Love ~ Liberty.
Good Thoughts, Good Words , Good Deeds.
That is the Ron Paul rEVOLution Creed.

One Louv. ;-)..

Bernanke is not so arrogant in this clip ...

Ron Paul is on the mark and, quite frankly, has Bernanke looking a little less confident than he generally was in the past. Dr. Paul is grilling him like it's Fourth of July in the Park! Dr. Paul is my inspiration. Like a pitbull on a meat truck, he never gives up!

holy hell everyone!

the dollar is still the premier currency!

what in hell's name have all of us been thinking this whole time?


I agree, a BS response if

I agree, a BS response if there was ever one.

How RP and the others in the room didn't burst into laughter is remarkable.

Here's my problem with this.

Here's my problem with this. Obviously Paul is right. It's just rational thinking. However, he is learned and understands. If we assume everyone else isn't, then I don't actually see the catastrophe he is talking. In other words, if the dollar itself genuinely has no value to begin with...it's inherently worthless. It's just paper. Then, it's value is created out of thin air, out of social agreement, out of credit. Hence, as long as everybody still plays the credit game it can still work the dollar. Whether it does or not will probably simply depend on if the economy gets stimulated. On that note, I do keep thinking energy really does seem like an overall solution.

If Ron Paul has any staff he should get them to sit behind him.

Apparently the establishment is so worried about what Ron Paul has to say, that they feel the need to try to cause a distraction in the background every time he speaks.

Ron Paul's Convention Speech

Thanks for posting this

I smelled the end of the central bank system

Make sure to catch an End the Fed! rally near you this Saturday.

11/22/08 End the Fed rallies in 38 cities. There's a link in the upper righthand corner of the page. Bid farewell!

bernanke is a compulsive liar

and does anyone know who the fat phuk in the background laughing during Ron's talk is? He is a prime example of the reason for our demise. Someone actually speaking truth and these bastards are not even listening, or worse they don't care. I hope they all sink in an abyss.


Ticker Tape Parade

I think Ron Paul knows despite the fact that he won't really learn anything from these hearings, he wants Bernake on the record telling bald-faced lies like he had Greenspan do. When they go back to the tape, they'll realize Ron Paul was the only one asking relevant questions.


is using a sly lawyers trick on him by asking direct questions on tape but not pressing him.

Later, when the truth comes out, Bernanke will be crucified by his own lies.

God bless...

...George Carlin :)

"to make ourselves feel important." ... "...the people would see that we are irrelevant." "...which worthless ass..assets we're going to buy..." Priceless. :)

Maybe it's just me, but this was an "I don't give a rats ass anymore kinda speech." Where Dr Paul was just laying the big fat nasty dead fish at Bernanke's feet and saying, "Good luck with that!" hahaha

kind of funny he claims they are selling it but when you go to

buy some there is never any to be found. Makes one wonder who thier selling it to maybe Iran hehehe. Why not sell it to them they can just steal it back when they go to war with them.

Your right

They are not selling gold, they would be crazy to sell it at this point, It sounded like Bernake could barely bring himself to say it.....he was clearly being dishonest. They know that more and more people know and it is becoming clear to the world that the dollar is not going to work any more.

Bernacchio's nose is growing

Again and again he tells lies. Why does RP ask questions he knows he is not going to get a correct answer from? Is it to get others to see what a liar Bernacchio is? I sometimes wonder why he wastes his breath. He has so much more patience than I ever would.

Politics is just a people pacifier

Those were all rhetorical questions. We all know what's really going on.

"There can be only one permanent revolution - a moral one: The regeneration of the inner man."

"The body is but a vessel for the soul,
A puppet which bends to the soul's tyranny.
And lo, the body is not eternal,
For it must feed on the flesh of others,
Lest it return to the dust whence it came.
Therefore the soul deceives and despises."

I know he is too classy, but just once I wish he would ask...

"Mr. Bernanke, when Baron Rothschild farts, do you get a stain in your undies?"
I think it is time to start spelling out exactly who "The Fed" is - the sleeple are beginning to realize the Fed is a screwed up mess, time to drag them a bit deeper into the rabbit hole.
Rothschild Roundup, coming soon!

Truth exists, and it deserves to be cherished.

Bernanke is clearly lying

When he says gold does not come up in discussions "aside from when central bankers are going to sell".

That is a bald faced lie.

My liberty-minded home base of thought:



Freedom - Peace - Prosperity

He also

sounds like it. He reminds me of a little child squirming to get out of a lie.

The DP is proof that the grassroots support for Ron Paul and his peaceful message of individual liberty is large, real, and not going away!

The dollar is strong?

But the main question proposed is how long? Bernanke has a problem in perceiving the future of the greenback. The dollar is strong for this exact reason, countries at the moment are finding a "safe haven" in the dollar market for now. But some countries(Iran,China,etc) are wise to this scheme and are aware that this increase in the dollar is only temporary. Ron Paul is once again correct,Bernanke on the other hand cannot foresee these events.

"It is dangerous to be right in matters on which the established authorities are wrong" - Voltaire

" Government is not reason; it is not eloquent; it is force. Like fire, it is a dangerous servant and a fearful master. " - George Washington

Bernanke lied.

I think Bernanke lied. A few years down the road they'll say: oh, we've planned this since 2001. Bernanke is trying not to rock the boat - keep the status quo until the last drop of milk gets sucked out. anybody who believes the dollar is strong is in for a brutal awakening.

Surely not everybody outside

Surely not everybody outside the Ron Paul supporters are brain dead. Can America at large not HEAR what Ron Paul is saying? Does Bernanke really believe what he answers? Will someone in the house please remove the two jackasses animated behind Ron Paul in conversation and activity. Are they trying to be distracting? (on purpose???) Thanks Ron Paul for your unwavering commitment to truth and its disclosure.

rp and bb

bernanke's lost such credibility with me. i basically listen to what he says, and then believe the opposite.

rp: do you ever, in your conversations with other central bankers, discuss a new reserve currency?
bb: no, never! (read: yes! all the time!)

rp: do you ever disscuss gold?
bb: only when talking about selling gold (read: only when we talk about the need to hoard gold)

Very Interesting

It's good to see Rep. Paul sticking it to them in his always polite style because he actually gets some answers from them. Too bad Bernanke couldn't get more in depth about his views on a world currency and gold, but I guess he answered: no he still believes in the US dollar, no, they only intend to sell more gold.
