Alternative currency is the only answer, it's legal and does an end run on the monetary fascist regime. We don't need their stinkin paper.

I think the only reason Dr. Paul is still with us is because the media does a great job of making this honest man look like a looney. And that's if you're into politics. Otherwise you've 'never heard of him', so he must not be important - even though he has the spirit of Jefferson.

Lincoln succeeded ... and was also killed.

Garfield argued against the banks and Jackson successfully got rid of the European owned US central bank avoiding several assassination attempts.

Powderful people who oppose the bank end up dead.

And it's actually illegal. So good luck with that.

The real question is who is in charge of those big American and European banks? The rabbit hole indeed goes deep...

Just hazarding a guess that it's the same families who owned them in 1913.

Anonymous's picture

not really a guess we have much more recent data than that.

as recently as 1967 James Stillman Rockefeller was president of Citi while his cousin David was Chairman of Chase (now JPMC).

now of course, those fine gentlemen must have been the two most qualified candidates, since the family had long since given away all of its money, and therefore could not have been in a position to influence the boards of those massive corporations...

and everybody remembers US Vice President Nelson Aldrich Rockefeller. named for the Senator who sponsored the original Fed legislation (but not the final), who married his son to Abby Rockefeller.

What is Nelson remembered for again??

An organization can be corrupt and destructive without having strings being pulled by some nondescript upper echelon.  1000 Goldman bankers acting on their own greed and self interest are probably more destructive than the same number trying to act in unison under the orders of some aristocratic patriarch.

Their compensation plan rewards psychopathic behavior. The more pain you cause, the more you make.

Steak, I would say far more destructive.  Hence the reason I keep harping on one of my pet themes that questions IF those that created and loosed this structure have the capacity or will to reign it in knowing that their efforts may end in failure.

Your 401K is !!!!!  we are like virsus who feed on the patient until dead.  The same 401K that sent your job to China so your 'paid to play' manager could look good when he sends you your report on how 'well' your 401K is doing!  You don't need to understand the business, you ARE the business.

Good post. We need to see more such posts on ZH.

And we can further discuss the issues of a gold based currency vs a colonial scrip patterned system of exchange.

50 bps for $4.2 on $1000?

Does not seem right, shoud be 4.2% (42mm/1b)

50 bps * dur (~8) = 4%

I think it is a cunning political trick to tie future inflation to Ron Paul's reform efforts.   We know that auditing the Fed will not produce future inflation, but if the Fed's lobbyists can make that lie stick, there may not be any reform in our lifetimes.  When the devaluation becomes obvious, the leaders of our country can say it's Ron Paul's fault.

Haven't you heard?  CO2 emissions causes inflation and if we don't pass the heathcare bill, the big banks will fail.

bilbert's picture

I'm not sure that is correct - If I remember correctly, we need to pass the healthcare bill to reduce global warming.............

SilverIsKing's picture

I stand corrected.  Thank you.

This will not be paid for or settled until there are casualties in the street. Many of them.

Financial shananigans are always paid for in blood ultimately, and have been for centuries.

Take my advice and jump now, fuckers!

And I always thought the Rockerfeller-Rothchild connection was the stuff of conspiracy clubs, you know black helicopters, Bilderbergers etc.; the kind of clubs where tinfoil hats adorn the members and they discuss how to store a year's worth of food. But then I read the article above and come across some current mainstream news items which advocate a type of eugenics and global government and talk about domestic surveillance drones as if they were reporting on the latest Yankee trade. Then bizarro stuff like the White House School Safety Czar as an advocate of things unspeakable or a President who says one thing about the TARP on Tuesday and on Weds his Treas. Sec. goes and does just the opposite. Then we have Tiger the paragon of all things good and pure only to find out that the guy is, and actually always has been a prick both on and off the course but that the media chose to keep quiet about it.

Where do I apply for my tinfoil hat?

I can make one for you. All my friends are getting one for Christmas.

Obama's bumfuckery czar, Kevin Jennings, is a truly sickening freak. Who's next for Attorney General, Charles Manson?

The whole thing is being choreographed to recapitalize underfunded bank balance sheets.

SilverIsKing's picture

BINGO!  One more like that and you get to trade in your prize for the larger one.

Well, it is not so much that fed needs to be abolished, but it should really be targeting inflation rates.

Anonymous's picture

It's hard to trust anyone whose believes that the 'big banks' own the fed.

A modicum of research shows that's simply bogus by any standard....

Sad really, most of these beliefs are based on on griffin's work of fiction - Jeykll Island.

That's right. The Fed is not owned by anyone, and is staffed by priests who grow up meditating half-naked, eating forest insects, and chopping wood and carrying water, after taking lifelong vows of poverty. If you saw Ben Bernanke on TV in the Fed building, with the 30-foot ceilings, marble stairways, and gold-plated chairs, you know what I mean. The Fed exists only to serve.

Your ideas are intriguing to me and I wish to subscribe to your newsletter.

First thing I'm gonna do when i build my time machine is travel back to 1910 and blow up that rail car. Imagine the fall out if the 5 most powerful bankers in the country were to be eliminated from 20th century history. We might be worse off...but dayum....odds are we would be in much better shape.

The Federal Reserve has been working for 100 years to enslave you and it is almost there. It is just one economic collapse away from a suspension of the Constitution and martial law. Our Nation needs to turn to God and the Christian principles upon which it was founded before it is too late.
