The Fed Is Hiring: Lots Of Cops

Tyler Durden's picture




 

Some may have forgotten, or not be aware, that the Federal Reserve system has its own police force. Well, it does: "The U.S. Federal Reserve Police is the law enforcement arm of the Federal Reserve System, the central banking system of the United States.... Officers are certified to carry a variety of weapons systems (depending on assignment) including semi-automatic pistols, assault rifles, submachine guns, shotguns, less-lethal weapons, pepper spray, batons and other standard police equipment. Officers also wear bullet resistant vests/body armor. On October 12, 2010 President Barack Obama signed into law S.B. 1132 the "Law Enforcement Officers' Safety Act Improvements Act", which states that law enforcement officers of the Federal Reserve are "qualified law enforcement officers" and thus are authorized to carry a firearm off-duty."

At last check, there were over 1000 sworn members of the Fed police force. And judging by the recent spike in appearances of such "help wanted" ads as those shown below, that number is too low. We expect many more job postings such as these to appear in the coming weeks and months: in fact, we are willing to predict that the closer we get to a "renormalization" of the Fed's balance sheet, the faster the hiring of Fed cops...

I worked for the NY Fed back then in operations.  What a clusterfuck.  They'd hire really good people - who'd quit in frustration after 6 months.  The truly incompetent stayed - and rose in the ranks.  One systems person whould run out of meetings crying when questioned too 'harshly' about anything - but Daddy played golf with Board members.   The tellers - those that handled currency - made around $20,000 a year back then - and all drove new Caddys or BMW's.... they eventually relocated Currency Operations to NJ - on the site of a toxic waste dump in East Rutherford.  You can't make this stuff up.

The Fed is the WORST of private and public in one institution  (with an astounding amount of alcoholism in the upper ranks - the Pres of the NY  Fed actually fell over, knocking down a podium when addressing one bunch of bankers.  And that ethos filtered down the ranks.  Kind of embarassing to have your manager shitfaced- to the poitnt of taking off his shirt and ... at a friiendly 'morale-building' get to gether after work).

Think about it though.  If we continue in the path to Weimar, you're going to need MASSIVE amounts of currency simply to keep up when inflation really lets loose (and I have no doubt that it will).  The logistics of printing and distributing ever more money - and you will still need the paper stuff, we're not all electronic yet- are huge.

Yes.

I am heartened that many more are discovering the true distinction of legal vs justice (justness) which is the very cornerstone of proper law. Hitler had laws, Mao had laws Pol Pot had laws...all very much "legal" in every sense of the word but those legalities were never just or had anything to do with justice.

Law can be thought of as a simple trap for the public and the unwary, of what it is and what it is not. Without force, it is nothing (it has no validity without enforcement) and yet force, is the only thing that truly confronts its very existence when law is abused.

It won't be long before EVERY agency has it's own police force (does the EPA have a police force yet??).

When you have tens of thousands of new laws and regulations to enforce every passing year (and I'm not exaggerating) you just can't trust the general police force to be able to identify everything that is now a crime.  

As I was shoveling off my driveway yesterday I started to wonder how long before the EPA shows up and declares my yard a "wetlands" area and fines me for moving the snow around.  Of course they'll be back when it melts in the spring and dries up- they'll fine me again for destroying that same wetlands area.  If the EPA had a police force I'm sure that would be accompanied by being cuffed-and-stuffed, needing to post bail and hiring a lawyer to defend myself in front of a "special" EPA court.

It's authority creep and it matters not just because of how many police are hired, but by how SPECIALIZED those police forces are.  "Special" police always ends up needing "special" courts.

If you rely on police protection you deserve every bit of what will come of/with it. Legal precedence has already been set that cops have no duty to protect the individual. So no, I shall make no such demand.

The only police I even halfway trust are the locals, because I know them and they know me.  "Special" police forces protect only their agency.  Federal Reserve Police aren't answering 911 calls and helping ANYONE.  You won't see them out there stopping muggers from stealing Federal Reserve Notes from their victims.  And they sure aren't going to be there for the general public if the SHTF.  

They are just "enforcers" for their particular agency and do only that agency's bidding.  That those "special" police don't know anyone they are protecting any more than the "criminals" they are chasing adds another layer of potential abuse.  Everyone looks like the enemy to them.  I mean really, who's going to stop them?  The local cops?  No, no, no.  They are beholden only to their AGENCY.  The same people they work for are the same they are supervised and given impunity by.

It's an important difference.

Another quaint question, regarding a runaway social pyramid system which has NO "kill switch" ...

Who do the 1,000 man, and growing, police force of the Federal Reserve Board actually work for, when the Fed is not a governmental entity, but rather a private corporation, owned by shareholders whose identities are difficult to discover ???

That is just another tiny tip of the ENORMOUS ICEBERG of the degree to which America's combined money/murder systems have PRIVATIZED the death controls that back up the debt controls. How utterly bizarre does it get to have private corporations, whose shareholders can not readily be verified, and whose operations have never been independently audited to any satisfactory degree, are directing their own growing army of police protection? In that context, I repeat that the most important, and most mad, thing that the government of the USA has done is allow its runaway systems of legalized lies, backed by legalized violence, to become increasingly PRIVATIZED!

The USA social pyramid systems have become psychotically insane ... In my opinion, many people want to continue to indulge in their political fantasies that their realities are not now circumscribed by people who are criminally insane, making the decisions that overall influence what is going to happen ... Having a private corporation with a growing private police force, whose owners can not be readily identified, which has the power of legalized lies, and legalized violence, to back them up, is actually runaway criminal insanity, which is the result of the best organized gang of criminals being able to take over covert control of the political processes.

Most people want to continue to believe that there is still some ulterior rationality and deeper level of self-interested sanity behind these developments. However, my view is that this whole process of successfully corrupting the powers of governments, in order to effectively privatize them, has become INSANE and utterly irrational.

Still most of the few people who wake up more to some of the levels of the runaway social insanities want to still believe that there must be some deeper levels at which covert sanity is directing the overt insanities, for their own evil, but nevertheless still rational, self-interest. However, I think that more fully waking up to how bad things truly are requires facing the facts that thousands of years of the history of warfare, and all of the science and artfulness which was behind that history, has leaped off its rails, to become criminally insane.

The Federal Reserve Board does not know what it doing, and the Fed's police force does not know what it is doing. They are runaway social insanities, where the power to rob, and the power to kill to back up that robbery, have become PRIVATIZED in ways which are social insanities, which are necessarily headed through some series of psychotic breakdowns.

The best metaphor for our actual reality is that we are stuck inside of an insane asylum, which has been taken over by the most criminally insane inmates. Thousands of years of history of warfare, topped off by hundreds of years of history of the current financial system, have NOT created something which still has some hidden levels of rationality, albeit evil purposes. What exists now is actually an out-of-control social insanity, where the solutions to its problems, like the Fed hiring more people to serve in its PRIVATIZED police force, actually expresses runaway social insanity, NOT some hidden level of evil rationality.

Just one well-placed cop with a brain, real balls and a conscience could be extremely dangerous.  The puppetmasters know that after a few years of hyperinflation, a few Fed cops might wake up unless they have a lobotomy or a paycheck that isn't toilet paper.  That's why they're setting the bar so low, even though you need a college degree to be a friggin' cashier these days. 

To any cops reading this:  Don't take the government's vaccines.  Don't let them dose you with anything at work, especially if you sense a crackdown is imminent.  Don't even take the coffee that morning.  They will try to vaccinate you against knowing or caring about this horrible truth:  You protect and serve the biggest crimminals (the ones who buy the laws).

There were only two people from my old high school that wanted to become police, and applied for the job. The nicer, but relatively unintelligent, guy was turned away, because he was "too philosophical." However, another asshole, who was not too bright, was accepted to become a police officer. Within five years he made front page news by killing an unarmed young man, who was trying to run away, by shooting him in the back.

Therefore, according to my personal experiences, only the relatively stupid assholes are picked to become police officers. It is not just that one has to not be intelligent in order to be allowed to become a police officer, one also has to be able and willing to be an utter asshole to get picked for that job.

A long time ago, in the days of my youth, there used to still be a significant number of good police officers. However, those are extremely rare today! A monstrous "brown shirt" brigade is being deliberately assembled, who will obey orders, no matter how insane and evil those orders would appear to most other people. Of course, that fits the overall pattern that our entire society has been more and more taken over by the most criminally insane people. ... As my previous reply above already just said, I believe that things are way, way, way worse than almost anybody is willing or able to face!
