Watch Ron Paul And Jim Grant Discuss Monetary Policy Live

Tyler Durden's picture

The much anticipated hearing on "The Relationship of Monetary Policy and Rising Prices" chaired by Ron Paul and includes such witnesses as James Grant has started. It should be quite interesting because the last time we checked, Grant contued to refuse to drink the Bernanke Kool Aid.

The complete witness list consists of:

Why do we need a hearing on this?  Can we not trust our eyes and wallets at this point?

Which one of the witnesses will be the "defender" of the FED - Lehrman??

Certainly neither Grant nor Salerno...

Blocked at work. Do we know if any recordings will be available?

Ace Ventura's picture

Blocked here too. And no luck finding it on any of the CPSPAN channels broadcast through Comcast. Fun watching a nearly empty House considering whether or not to 'order the previous question' regarding the taxpayer subsidies for NPR.

Can't let the peasantry see the hearings on the REAL issues that affect everything, now can we?

CSPAN can show the hearing on NPR, but not this.... god bless the media.

A lot of Ron Paul's videos often have poor audio-especially on You Tube.

The headline is bad but the article is worse. It makes you want to puke. Caroline Salas is clearly carrying water for the Fed.

"The Standard & Poor’s 500 Index of stocks has climbed 18 percent since he said Aug. 27 that additional asset purchases might be warranted."

Pffft 18%? That's nothing. Just ask Mugabe. Look how well Zimbabwe is doing since going 100000000000% inflation. They are the largest economy in the world right?

Not just a water carrier. She actually believes it. She thinks QE is something new I guess. Little does she realize that QE is just what turns bad economies in banana republics.

Your last sentence was perfect.  A great way to sum it up.

The Bernank is clearly not printing fast enough.

He needs to turn the clock speed up on the electronic digit machine in order to keep up with Japan.

Japan is printing trillions, not billions, and look how much better the Yen is doing...

Finally an attempt to get to the truth of the ponzi and it's nowhere to be found on the MSM nor is the audio good for the link-- haha what a blatant attempt by the bullshit system to block the truth.  Fucking bastards.

Has this audio been sabotaged ?

I am viewing it and listening to it on Windows Media Player.

Unfortunately, listening to Ron Paul is like listening to your high school principal lecture you about how you should be studying 24/7 and you should avoid drinking and girls at all costs.

Pretty much falls on deaf ears....

Temporalist's picture

Yes for momos that have no patience finding out how they are being robbed and would rather touch themselves looking at charts that show how well the wealth effect is working Dr. Paul is a bore. 

iinthesky's picture

Couldn't agree more. What they should do is go back in and re-read the congressional records from 1929-1933. Specifically read the words spoken by a brave man from Pensylvannia named Louis McFadden. Through those years he lays out the whole scam. How they embezzled all the gold into Europe, how they funded the Nazi's through billions of gold dollars shipped over there to pay for paper reparation bonds that the Germany refused to pay. How the BIS came about. So much fraud and this guy laid it all out. I recommend spending some time reading those speeches. Get 'The Collective Speeches of Louis McFadden' from Amazon. They should go in and reaffirm what was done back then because those were the years that were formative for the current socialist police state agenda where everything requires a license and you own absolutely nothing. They state very clearly in the congressional records that FRNs will represent a mortgage on all property and land of the American people. It's mind boggling but it is required knowledge to put the pieces together.

Mudflap's picture

Louis McFadden was spot on...

"Mr. Chairman, we have in this country one of the most corrupt institutions the world has ever known. I refer to the Federal Reserve Board and the Federal Reserve Banks. The Federal Reserve Board, a Government board, has cheated the Government of the United States and the people of the United States out of enough money to pay the national debt. The depredations and iniquities of the Federal Reserve Board has cost this country enough money to pay the national debt several times over. This evil institution has impoverished and ruined the people of the United States, has bankrupted itself, and has practically bankrupted our Government. It has done this through the defects of the law under which it operates, through the maladministration of that law by the Federal Reserve Board, and through the corrupt practices of the moneyed vultures who control it."

From a speech in 1932.

iinthesky's picture

Indeed.. McFadden was a rare man. Perhaps this is why they treated him like Rasputin, they shot him, poisoned him, then finally poisoned him again to kill him. When we came to 1932 he was already frothing at the mouth about the private fed. Prior to this he was leading up to the finale. He exposed everything.. the globalists, which at the time were calling themselves 'internationalists' and the agendas if the BIS, etc. Before him I believe Lindburgh was on their asses. I havent read his books yet. The reality in this country is so far removed from what the average man or woman takes for granted it is a chasm of legendary proportions. The shit they pulled in the teens, 20's and 30's to set up the system is never discussed, never studies, and constantly denied. The joke of it all is, its all public record.

My Dear Senator:                                                                                                Feb. 16, 1900

 Here is still another very objectionable bill. It is so outrageous as to be ridiculous, but it needs to be looked after and I hope there will be no difficulty in killing it . . .

                                     Very Sincerely yours,

  My Dear Senator:                                                                                                               April 17, 1900

  I enclose you a certificate of deposit to your favor for $15,000 . . . I need scarcely again express our great gratification over the favorable outcome of affairs . . .

                                      Very Sincerely yours,

They own the lawmakers... they feed the elite (buying support)... they have no master... they fear nothing... they take what they want (with no legal or moral boundaries) with impunity.

When do those fighting over the scraps tire of wiping the blood from their hands each day?

When do we fight back?

No junk from me.  Every expensive mistake in my life has involved one or the other of those.  Usually both.

Makes a perfect metaphoric statement though of why are so completely doomed.

Anyone actually able to watch? I haven't been able to connect.

These guys make it too easy for conspiracy theorists to seem right.

Yes, they are on break.

I have been watching it on Windows Media Player.  You do need to crank up the volume.

The Profit Prophet's picture

Yes, they're on a 20 minute break that started about 10 minutes ago.  The boys are speaking from the heart about what a corrupt Elitist system the FED is, America's desperate need for a gold standard, and how QE has only benefited financial elites and speculators - to the detriment of the middle and lower classses.
