Fed To Take Propaganda To The Schoolroom: Will Teach Grade 8-12 Students About Constitutionality Of... The Fed

Tyler Durden's picture




 

Back in September we noted a peculiar RFP by the Fed which sought to become a secret 'big brother' to the social media world, and to "monitor billions of conversations and generate text analytics based on predefined criteria." The Fed's desired product should be able to "determine the sentiment of a speaker or writer with respect to some topic or document"... "The solution must be able to gather data from the primary social media platforms – Facebook, Twitter, Blogs, Forums and YouTube. It should also be able to aggregate data from various media outlets such as: CNN, WSJ, Factiva etc." Most importantly, the "Listening Platform" should be able to "Handle crisis situations, Continuously monitor conversations, and Identify and reach out to key bloggers and influencers." While it is unclear just how successful the Fed has been in eavesdropping on various critical blogs, and divining "sentiment", it now appears that the propaganda masters at the Office of Central Planning have decided to go for young American minds while they are still pliable. It appears that as part of its reenactment of Goebbels "economic education" curriculum, the Fed will now directly appeal to K 8-12 student, in which it will elucidate on the premise of "Constitutionality of a Central Bank." You know - just in case said young (and soon to be very unemployed) minds get ideas that heaven forbid, the master bank running the US is not exactly constitutional - you know, that whole thing between Andrew Jackson and the Second Bank of the United States...

And in case one is wondering what dogmatic propaganda their childredn will be filled with, here is tje course outline.

Lesson Description

The Constitution of the United States outlines the basic principles of the U.S. government. This lesson focuses on the express and implied powers of Congress and the power of the Supreme Court to decide whether a law is unconstitutional. In this lesson, students learn about McCulloch v. Maryland, a case decided in 1819 over (1) whether the state of Maryland had the right to tax the Second Bank of the United States and (2) whether Congress had violated the Constitution in establishing the Bank. Students also review the expressed powers of Congress identified in the Constitution and analyze how Congress implements the necessary and proper (elastic) clause to enact its expressed powers. Finally, students use their knowledge of McCulloch v. Maryland and the necessary and proper clause to consider the constitutionality of the Federal Reserve System.

Concepts

Expressed powers
Federal Reserve Act
Fiat money
Implied powers
Necessary and proper (elastic) clause
Precedent
Value of money [ZH: lol]

Objectives

Students will:

  • define expressed powers, implied powers, precedent, fiat money, the Federal Reserve Act, the necessary and proper (elastic) clause, and the value of money;
  • cite examples of the expressed powers granted to Congress in Article 1, Section 8 of the Constitution;
  • explain the meaning of the necessary and proper (elastic) clause;
  • explain the significance of the McCulloch vs. Maryland Supreme Court case; and
  • give examples of the implied powers necessary to implement various expressed powers.

Yet the oddest thing about the lesson plan is visual #4. It speaks for itself:

Well thanks for the warning...

The Fed shoulda thunk of this a long while ago.

They lost the intellectual battle for the minds of the future when Paul and Rothbard hit the college circuit 20 years ago. I have no idea what it would take to send the "defend the Fed" script viral the way "end the Fed" has gone viral. Seems impossible.

I honestly don't know what the fuss is about. The Federal Reserve has been deemed constitutional by the Supreme Court as well as many politicians such as Timothy Geithner (Current Treasury Secretary), Nancy Pelosi (Former Speaker of the house), Mitt Romney (GOP Presidential Candidate) and many finance professionals such as Hank Paulson (Former Treasury Secretary), Dr Ben Bernanke (Current Fed Chairman) and Professor Alan Blinder (Princeton Economics Professor).

Anyway, for the younger readers out there, pay attention to your teachers and make sure you add the Federal Reserve as a friend on Facebook!

I'm wondering how they can justify this crap as 'educational'?  It's obviously rank propaganda, and not even 'State propaganda'.  I read through the list and I seriously doubt the kiddies will be paying attention.  Hogwash is hogwash and the ones that are actually interested in this will work it out pretty quick.  The ones that don't would turn out a lost cause anyway.

A few 'modules' on TBTB hystery, and the fact that they own the Fed outright, and therefore own all FRN notes, and also the Magic-Mouse-Tweaker (MMT), and use FRNs to buy politicians to get the laws and injustices they want.

But they will of course try to shove that shit down their throat for 15 years or so.  It won't be one quick lesson, they'll keep coming back to it in a thousand different ways, and reinforcing it through pop-kulture and Goldman Sachs Youth kamps.

It's still going to FAIL though.

On May 23, 1933, Congressman, Louis T. McFadden, brought formal charges against the Board of Governors of the Federal Reserve Bank system, The Comptroller of the Currency and the Secretary of United States Treasury for numerous criminal acts, including but not limited to, CONSPIRACY, FRAUD, UNLAWFUL CONVERSION, AND TREASON.

The petition for Articles of Impeachment was thereafter referred to the Judiciary Committee and has

Congressman McFadden on the Federal Reserve Corporation
Remarks in Congress, 1934 AN ASTOUNDING EXPOSURE 

..............................

 Reprinted by permission 1978 Arizona Caucus Club


"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, hereinafter called the Fed. The Fed has cheated the Government of these United States and the people of the United States out of enough money to pay the Nation's debt. The depredations and iniquities of the Fed has cost enough money to pay the National debt several times over.

 

"This evil institution has impoverished and ruined the people of these 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 Fed and through the corrupt practices of the moneyed vultures who control it.

 

"Some people who think that the Federal Reserve Banks United States Government institutions. They are private monopolies which prey upon the people of these United States for the benefit of themselves and their foreign customers; foreign and domestic speculators and swindlers; and rich and predatory money lender. In that dark crew of financial pirates there are those who would cut a man's throat to get a dollar out of his pocket; there are those who send money into states to buy votes to control our legislatures; there are those who maintain International propaganda for the purpose of deceiving us into granting of new concessions which will permit them to cover up their past misdeeds and set again in motion their gigantic train of crime.

 

"These twelve private credit monopolies were deceitfully and disloyally foisted upon this Country by the bankers who came here from Europe and repaid us our hospitality by undermining our American institutions. Those bankers took money out of this Country to finance Japan in a war against Russia. They created a reign of terror in Russia with our money in order to help that war along. They instigated the separate peace between Germany and Russia, and thus drove a wedge between the allies in World War. They financed Trotsky's passage from New York to Russia so that he might assist in the destruction of the Russian Empire. They fomented and instigated the Russian Revolution, and placed a large fund of American dollars at Trotsky's disposal in one of their branch banks in Sweden so that through him Russian homes might be thoroughly broken up and Russian children flung far and wide from their natural protectors. They have since begun breaking up of American homes and the dispersal of American children. "Mr. Chairman, there should be no partisanship in matters concerning banking and currency affairs in this Country, and I do not speak with any.

The fact that these steps are being taken reveals their fear and desperation. You can practically see the gills in their necks gasping for oxygen. These sick, parasitic thieves are going to have to keep looking over their shoulders for the rest of their lives. Every person they see could be the one that snuffs them out. Every meal they eat could be their last.

We've all seen this production before over the ages and it always ends the same...with the breaking down of the bunker door to get at them.

You would think they would learn and the victims would learn through time. One is not free if they are dependent on anyone or anything.

Now for my rant...

So to the sheep I say, go stand in line for the scraps your masters throw over their shoulder for you. Recognize your place as a scrap yourself, a piece of meat, just a nod away from yet more scraps. Recognize how easily you are diverted away from the freedom you so crave but are never allowed to hold.

Why is this so?

Because you are afraid of liberty dear sheeple.

You want to be held, if only for a moment until they tire of you but you will understand. You want to feel important, if just for that day. You want life without pain which is impossible. You want all the accumulated knowlege of mankind given to you for just being obedient, servile. You want a warm bed to be provided for you. You want to feel protected and loved.

They will grant you some of this.

But you will never be free because of it and you know it in your heart.

You are afraid of the things that can accompany freedom. You can be cold yet free. You can also be hungry and free. You can have no friends and remain free. You can remain free until you are caught and brought back.

This is what you want really, a warm bed, a hot meal of leftovers granted to you by your jailers.
