"The Fed's Days Are Numbered" Ron Paul On The Crucial Issue "They" Don't Want To Talk About

Tyler Durden's picture

Via SovereignMan.com's Simon Black,

Just had a great weekend in Dallas, where I had the pleasure of spending some time with Dr. Ron Paul.

After our event on Saturday we sat down to record a quick podcast that I’m eager to share with you.

In this quick audio session we covered his views on the biggest issues surrounding the Fed right now:

  • Why the Fed is not going to raise interest rates
  • How they’ve lost the power to manipulate markets
  • How they rig half of every transaction you make
  • The crucial issue that they don’t want people talking about
  • And how they’ve made us poorer

You’ll definitely want to hear this.

"All The Fed has is credibility" and, as Ron Paul expounds, by folding on a 25bps rate hike, it tells you how fragile this system is... built on a foundation of sand."


Indeed, if stocks weren't held up, that would be another 'signal' of the fragility... "and that is why they created The Plunge Protection Team."


By "manipulating the most important price in markets," Paul concludes, "we are at the climactic end of the 'system' that started in August 1971."

Re:  Nationalize the Fed.


Did that already.  If no one has noticed, the Fed website is now .gov whereas two weeks ago it was .com  This is not trivial, nor cosmetic.

Rumor has it that the pentagon has assumed control, as it has also assumed control of Goldman's contracted government benefits payment system.

Stay tuned.  This won't be on TV for a while longer.

Honesty gets you nowhere in DC, nobody wants to hear it.

Kennedy executive order 11110, signed on June 4, 1963, took the Fed out of the loop of money creation.  Five months later he was dead.

There needs to be a litmus test for allowing people to survive once the collapse comes.  Do you know any-fucking-thing about the Federal Reserve, or the neocons, or the psychopathic CIA?  No?  Sorry, you're not worth saving..

No, we need a 50-million man/woman march on the scum in Washington D.C. We need it more than ever. Talk about change.....

Mr Poopra's picture

Unfortunately this country has been completly gutted by cowardice, narcissism, and stupidity.  Nothing will change until we go head first over the precipice.

Even the forest needs a good fire once in a while to burn out all the dead and rotten wood.  It will happen in the U.S. very soon, and i think when we finally emerge, it will be beautiful.

SuperRay, you nailed it . I'd show up for THAT work detail .

I'm pretty sure you will know by the end of "Federal Reserve" whether to drop the hammer. A whole lot of useless spoiled entitled arrogant subhumans developed because of the Bankers credit bubble. If it is a catastrophic collapse.

The Best President America Never Had

and the crowd said " give us barnabas"

cigarEngineer's picture

The discussion has been hijacked by those who posit that we should have a president at all.

They take it for granted that we need a president; the discussion, instead, should be whether we really need a president.

Meat Hammer's picture

There it is! I like the way you think, cigarEngineer. It's high time people stop believing that a free country needs a leader.

Demdere's picture

I wildly agree with both of you, but wait to change horses until we have put our gov back inside the Constitutional box.  Then we repeal all the laws back to 1776, and wait 20 years while things sort themselves out.  At that point, we can decide on the horse.

Any other path, I think, will keep the kleptocrats in power years longer, make the fall longer.

cigarEngineer's picture

Congress is an anachronism from a time where you had to take a stagecoach for days to reach the Capitol to discuss issues.

Today, these discussions happen in real-time, and each person can represent him- or herself. It is far easier to corrupt and pay off one person who represents a million votes, than it is to pay-off and corrupt a million voters.

Furthermore, as a response to people who argue that "people don't have the time and therefore elect representatives" — fine: each person is free to entrust with a voting-"power-of-attorney" to an organization that most closely follows his views. No more gerrymandering and disenfranchising large portions of the population. See? We're all on the same side here.

Sorry, but "Tyranny of the Majority" is no way to run a country.

It has been proven over and over again, the last time in Kiev, that the Banksters and their captured mecia are adept at rousing out the mob, to the detriment of every sane and peaceful person.

If the Fed's days are numbered it's only because a new and even more horrible form of fascism awaits us.

The next version of this experience will involve a LOT of VIOLENCE. It's coming.......damn near by accident.

jcdenton's picture

Is this a fact, or just your belief? According to people like you, there is no such thing as good news? There are no solutions. Only grief, sorrow, and misery? Is it time to immanetize the eschaton?

I don't know what worse could be coming, except to imagine yourself a Stalker in Half-life 2. Similar happened to the Northern Kingdom under the Assyrian. That is before they were completely exterminated. Is that what you hope for? If not, then how do you personally expect to escape it all? Create your very own wormhole to wherever?

This kind of fear porn is not at all constructive. The following is ..

When a certain group of people plan. Plan decades in advance. Decades to exact a result in order to prevent a larger disastrous result. History generally agrees that they will be successful. That humans are successful. Unless that some inhuman force intervenes to prevent it ..

Which side of history are you going to be on?

There is no 'the future'.  We make the future.  The internet changes everything, I am amazed by the speed of change.  My newest thought says they are losing the propaganda war, and know it.

Once the Republicans regain control the FED will be audited and ended........

For the sake of any animals or small children that may be in your home, I hope that is sarcasm.

Beam Me Up Scotty's picture

Just like when the Republicans take contol we will get:

1. A balanced budget

2. Term limits

3. lower taxes

4. smaller government

5. less government waste

etc. etc.

None of which came to pass when they DID have both houses and W. was president.  Instead, they acted just like fucking LIBERALS!

A Lunatic's picture

They repealed Obamacare too. How could you overlook such a crowning achievement.....?!

Meat Hammer's picture

A statist is a statist is a statist.

greenskeeper carl's picture

indeed. and none of those statists want anything other than a large, intrusive government. Republicans aren't upset about the state of affairs, they just don't like not being in charge of it.


And it can't be overstated- last time the R team had complete control, can anyone name anything postive that came out of it? any kind of legislation that rolled back the welfare state or the warfare state? nope, they had a chance and did just what any thinking person should expect them to do- keep spending, keep ratcheting up government.

because they are all the fucking same!  there are no liberals or conservatives...there is only bought politicians...  they're just successfully turning us against each other...what is it you don't get about that?

Crocodile's picture

That is sarcasm; right?!

arby63's picture

Could happen (maybe and not holding my breath yet) with Trump. Not ended necessarily BUT audited.

BringOnTheAsteroid's picture

From the perspective of the Fed members they can't be audited because they have been breaking the law.

They would destroy the system in order to cover up the crimes before they got audited.

Don't hold your breath.

I'm not worried about the Fed being eventually dissolved.  I'm worried about the new global system they will try to replace it with, likely more tyrannical than we can imagine.  Paying a portion of our production in income taxes makes every living person not within the criminal system a serf.  We claim capitalism yet we don't even actually own our property.  Try not paying property taxes to find out who the true owner is.

We have to restore the power of money creation to the Treasury.  This is the single most important political goal and should be done by any means necessary and at any cost.  Should even most of the world perish in this cause, it will be worth it, as we will start again...only this time free.  Failure to do so may sentence the entire human race to centuries of enslavement.

Beam Me Up Scotty's picture

Do you honestly think your representatives in congress would act any differently than the Fed?  They would print money to infinity too.  Unless there is some sort of mechanism to prevent that---a gold standard----you can't bet your starry eyes that the "treasury" would make all the money they need too.

Mr Poopra's picture

A return to a gold or commodity standard goes without saying if the Treasury would assume control again.

Also i would recommend any attempt at shifting money creation into private hands as an act of treason.  Anyone caught should be shot like a dog, maybe after some sort of public humiliation.  We can get creative here, guys.


cigarEngineer's picture

You are wrong in advocating violence against those who create money privately.

Allow people to use whatever money they want. If I want to make CigarBucks, you are free to not accept them.

That is what will lead sound money to prosper: notes issued by the best-collaterized private banks will flourish and gain acceptance. A loss of confidence in the collateral will lead to fewer people accepting them as payment and their value will similarly decline.

Please, think for yourself and think carefully.
