The Origins of OWS "Occupy Wall Street: A Globalist Op?"

I found this article to be interesting and informative. I Thought it might be of some interest to others here at the DP.

"Occupy Wall Street: A Globalist Op?" by Kurt Nimmo

"The Occupy Wall Street movement, funded by globalist foundations – and increasingly receiving sympathetic coverage by the corporate media, at least its “liberal” wing – is now describing itself [12] as a gathering of “descamisados” (impoverished, landless) arrayed against the “estancieros” (land owners), a class warfare reference made popular in Argentina.

Could the FED actually be breaking the law?

Are there any economists or lawyers out there that can validate this article? If so, it seems like a big cache of ammo just landed in Dr. Paul's lap.

Herman Cain: Federal Reserve Audit Unnecessary - Ron Paul 2012 Video Release

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=q18jMzTWJ9A

In July 2011, a partial audit of the Federal Reserve as authorized by Congress revealed an unprecedented $16.1 trillion in unreported loans to U.S. financial institutions and foreign financial institutions.

On December 29, 2010, Herman Cain flatly denied the need for a Federal Reserve audit.

Herman Cain served as the Deputy Chairman (1992-1994) and Chairman (1995-1996) of the Board of Directors of the Federal Reserve Bank of Kansas City.

Washington Post article says Cain's answer on Federal Reserve was "disingenuous at best"

Excerpt:

When the candidates were invited to ask each other questions in Tuesday night’s debate, most focused their fire on the front-runner, former Massachusetts governor Mitt Romney. But Texas Rep. Ron Paul targeted Herman Cain - and caught the former Godfather’s Pizza CEO being disingenous at best.

...

While he didn’t use the word "ignorant" or specifically reference Paul, Cain pretty clearly did oppose a Fed audit at the time and dismiss those who supported one.

New Video: Ron Paul Leading

My last video was "The Age Of Ron Paul" that got a good amount of attention. I was hoping it'd encourage Aravoth to make another video, but to no avail.

In any case, my second video is now ready. It covers Ron Paul, the Fed, the economy... and is accompanied by Goonies music.

Please let me know your comments, thanks!

First Occupy Wall Street — Now Occupy the Fed

Perhaps surprising to some, many conservatives sympathize with the Occupy Wall Street protesters because they understand the motivating factors behind the protests: increased costs on everyday items, unemployment, inflation, etc. However, those conservatives recognize that much of the anger of the protesters is directed at the wrong target. The real enemy, they contend, is the Federal Reserve, and it is for that reason that those conservatives have chosen to use the momentum of the Occupy Wall Street protests to stage Occupy the Fed protests instead.

How Ron Paul Can End ALL Taxation

We have all heard candidates propose eliminating the income tax which came into existence by the same means as did the Federal Reserve bank and by the same co-conspirators. The creation of both was violently opposed by some starting with the Federal Reserve which is a privately run banking system controlled by the international bankers in collusion with the Rothschild Banking Cartel. These Bankster’s make Al Capone look like a Cub Scout as they are nothing but suited criminals that commandeered the entire monetary system of this nation under the auspices of the Federal Reserve Act!

Urgent from Stewart Rhodes: Give Me Your Top Ten Unconstitutional Bush Actions

I am about to write a blistering rebuttal to a neocon, Bush kool-aid drinking diatribe that acts as though the Bush years never happened, and only under Obama was the Constitution subverted. As usual, these neocons totally ignore the incredibly destructive, unconstitutional, treasonous actions of the Bush Admin and only complain about what has happened in the past three years, as if they were in a coma till January, 2009. I cannot at this time disclose the document I am rebutting, but I will post it, along with my rebuttal, after I am done.

Please help me by adding your top ten list (or top 20!) of Bush Admin crimes against the Constitution.

I think I already have a pretty decent list, but let me know if I am missing anything.

Audit Bernanke by Ron Paul

Before the US House of Representatives, Committee on Financial Services, Subcommittee on Domestic Monetary Policy and Technology Hearing on: "Audit the Fed: Dodd-Frank, QE3, and Federal Reserve Transparency," October 4th, 2011

by Ron Paul

In his 1974 Nobel Prize address, the late Austrian economist Friedrich von Hayek attacked the pretense of knowledge, the idea that policymakers have sufficient knowledge and power to shape society as they wish. Our political leaders failed to take Hayek's message to heart, as succeeding generations have continued to allow this intellectual arrogance to continue unabated. Just as the New Mandarins squandered America's wealth, resources, and young men during the 1960s, today's economic Mandarins seem hell-bent on destroying every last vestige of the free market and driving the economy into ruin. Congress has abdicated its oversight over these "expert" economists at the Federal Reserve, to the detriment of the economic well-being of the American people. Despite overwhelming grassroots support behind auditing the Fed, only incremental progress has been made toward unmasking the Federal Reserve's activities. Full transparency of the Fed's operations remains an elusive goal, but one towards which I intend to devote my remaining time in Congress.

The Fed has been given a monopoly by Congress to conduct monetary policy, and in so doing it tinkers with the most important price of all, the rate of interest. Interest rates reflect the price of time, and changes in the interest rate affect the structure of production. Forcing changes to the interest rate, as the Fed does, has a more pronounced effect on the economy than any law Congress has ever passed. Interest rates are used by individuals to make decisions about what type of investments they undertake, how much money they invest, and for how long. The higher the interest rate, the more likely an individual is to save money; the lower the interest rate, the less likely he is to save. Borrowers take the interest rate into account when borrowing money to buy a house, pay college tuition, or start or expand a business. The lower the interest rate, the cheaper it becomes to borrow money and the more likely individuals are to borrow; the higher the interest rate, the less likely they are to borrow. In a free market, some people will want to save while others will want to borrow, and the interest rate is the price that coordinates the actions of borrowers and savers.

$5 Debit Card Fee: Don't Blame Banks but Durbin, Dodd, Frank, the Fed

On Thursday, Bank of America announced that, starting the first of the year, they would be charging debit card users $5 a month for the privilege as a way to recoup lost income under new rules from the Federal Reserve. The rules, which took effect on Saturday, October 1, limit the amount banks may charge merchants accepting debit cards to 21 cents per transaction, down from 44 cents previously.

The Greatest Opportunity We May Have To Bring People to Ron Paul

Today I went into Boston for my guitar lesson after my classes, and not very far from it was the #OCCUPYBOSTON protests. I decided that as a politically active college student it would be worth my time to check it out. I had seen mixed views about the movement here, and whether or not it would be open to Ron Paul, and let me tell you this: Anyone here who doesn't think these people will stand with us, or that we shouldn't stand with them is wrong.

I wore a "Ron Paul is my Homeboy" shirt, and I got many compliments on it, thumbs up and the like. In fact I saw more Ron Paul supporters today than I have in my entire life, and everyone there, be they left right, libertarian or socialist all were uniting against the evils of the Federal Reserve and corporatism.

They are still developing what their goals are, and it seems really unclear at this point, but I can tell you it is safe to say that from my experiences these people have a lot in common with us, and are fighting the same fight. I feel we should unite with these people, and help them, because they're fighting the very same fight we're all fighting here.

On a side note if further motivation to help the cause of liberty is not enough - I met another college student - an avid Ron Paul supporter who also was about asking people questions and conversing with them who was arguably one of the prettiest girls I've seen.

I welcome any questions.

P.S.

I gave the dailypaul a few shout outs in a few interviews people had with me. Hopefully some more people find out about Ron Paul, and the liberty movement because of this.

Ron Paul supporters show up to Occupy L.A.

The demonstrators had a diverse set of issues. Some signs were rather straightforward: "Jobs Not Cuts." Others denounced the Wall Street bailout, the Citizens United campaign finance ruling.

Still others urged a boycott of Georgia for the execution of Troy Davis. And as often in such crowds, there were a handful of Ron Paul supporters. Several held up "End The Fed" signs.
