Ron Paul Statement On The Fed's Bailout Of Europe

Tyler Durden's picture





 

From Ron Paul

Statement on the Fed's Continued Euro Bailout

The Fed's latest actions in cooperating with foreign central banks to undertake liquidity swaps of dollars for foreign currencies is another reason why Congress needs enhanced power to oversee and audit the Fed.  Under current law Congress cannot examine these types of agreements.  Those who would argue that auditing the Fed or these agreements with central banks harms the Fed's independence should reevaluate the Fed's supposed independence when the Fed bails out Europe so soon after President Obama promised US assistance in resolving the Euro crisis.

Rather than calming markets, these arrangements should indicate just how frightened governments around the world are about the European financial crisis.  Central banks are grasping at straws, hoping that flooding the world with money created out of thin air will somehow resolve a crisis caused by uncontrolled government spending and irresponsible debt issuance.  Congress should not permit this type of open-ended commitment on the part of the Fed, a commitment which could easily run into the trillions of dollars.  These dollar swaps are purely inflationary and will harm American consumers as much as any form of quantitative easing. 

The Fed is behaving much as it did during the 2008 financial crisis, only this time instead of bailing out politically well-connected too-big-to-fail firms it is bailing out profligate government spending. Citizens the world over deserve better than this. They deserve sound money that cannot be manipulated and created out of thin air by central planners who promise printed prosperity. Fiat money caused this European crisis and the financial crisis before it.  More fiat money is not the cure. The global fiat currency system has proven itself a failure, we need real monetary reform. We need sound money.

Anybody noticed how NPR is avoiding Ron Paul?  I listen to their morning & evening programs on my way to work/home and they never, ever mention Ron Paul.  I used to respect them a bit but it goes to show that they're just part of the propaganda machine.

Spend a minute and voice your complaint at their Website.  They need to hear from more of us.

Dear Mr. Paul:

I know that it will be impossible for you to win with zero news coverage but I want you to fight on anyway, and I am planning to cast my last ever vote for you as a write in no matter what because there is not another person running besides you that even I could not do better than, not a big ego here but a very dim view of all other candidates. Today the Fed set aside the last pretense of American freedom by bailing out European banks/governments, and congress and the president applaud.  Aside from the utter lack of shame on the part of Europe which refuses to get it's own house in order and would rather take trillions of our dollars than actually fix their own mess, the Fed should not have the authority to do this.  Congress has also decided to ratify the indefinite imprisonment of American citizens, without charge.  I cannot live in such a nation.

Fortunately, a bunch of people took a more constructive attitude in telling their reps to support an audit of the Fed back in the day.  It finally forced Barney Frank to let Ron's bill have life after more than half the House was co-sponsoring it.  If your Rep only hears from one or two constituents, it's not going to bother him.  If he hears from enough mad as hell voters though, self preservation instincts kick in.  At any rate, it costs you much less to pick up the phone or send an email / letter / fax than to do nothing and give tacit support to their shenanigans.

Exactly!  +1000

 

Members here mostly, Want To Believe?  Wasn't that the X-Files movie title?

 

If Ron Paul had a clue about how he could "make a difference", he would already have done so.  The men we entrusted to safeguard our money have stolen it ALL and used a tiny portion to bribe our elected officials and government workers wherever the money we entrusted to them needed to be applied.

These are the same fucking bastards from Wall St. and City Of London who fomented the Bolsheviks and Communist Revolution to rob the Tsar and keep Russia and the rest of the world off-balance while it looted them as well.

 

Grow the fuck up.  The system has been perverted into their perfection and they have looted U.S. continually over the past 3 years.  Every bit of money that could be looted under auspices of Federal, State, and Local govt has been LOOTED or put onto the publics back using debt financings based on FRAUD.

Your vote means even less than your opinion.
If you haven't taken action to secure the future for your family by now, you have failed to observe what the Looters have arranged for you; namely, destruction, starvation, or outright murder.

Only you can take the steps which might mean your bloodline will survive.
The elections have been rigged for years and nothing ever is changed or repaired.
All the seedstock has been eaten, and there is nothing left to build on or plant; UNLESS you make provision for self & family.  The political circus is just a charade.

Paul ought to be leading a Revolution, rather than scratching his head in wonder and being Mr. Nice Guy.  He is too old, too timid, and knows there is nothing to save should he actually gain power.  We are long out of what Naomi Wolfe called "that awkward stage", but nobody will voice what must be done to those who put America and Americans into financial ruin and made sure there could be no rescue...

There are a few I like, but Paul is the best because I agree with him on monetary policy and the constitution.

I have a hard time with some of his policy because it is obvious that there will be systemic failure.  Then I remember I am an optimist when it comes to human ingenuity, and I realize that we will remake this once great Nation into how we see fit.

For example:

I wish we could have public schools for all.  But the problem is that the public school system has turned into a prison system for children.  Once it collapses I think maybe there will be more freedom.

I can only be an optimist and stand up with people to decide our fate.  Taking power of our destiny is our only choice.

By appealing to tons of bullshit about the Constitution and other patriotic crap, Congressman Ron Paul is able to seduce his brute and ignorant constituency while doing nothing at all in Congress (a clever way to make easy money). He is just part of the establishment while pretending to be a "genuine patriot." Dr. Paul is also a mediocre version of one of Leo Strauss' categories of society: the Gentlemen

The gentlemen, are lovers of honour and glory. They are the most ingratiating towards the conventions of their society – that is, the illusions of the cave. They are true believers in God, honour, and moral imperatives. They are ready and willing to embark on acts of great courage and self-sacrifice at a moment's notice.

Besides that, Americans are a bunch of stupid animals easy to manipulate and subdue. The sooner the US economy collapses the better, so these brutes will finally learn NOT to live beyond their means.

As a practical matter, don't you have to replace those people "around him" with people who have the same or similar core beliefs about federalism, adherence to the Constitution, etc., as Ron Paul?

And if so, wasn't Ron Paul's tenure in Congress necessary as the seed that sprouted into a changing of the corrupt guard?

I don't see how real, productive change is possible if you supplant the criminals in Congress of today with criminals in the future.

You can't get rid of them.

Imagine Bartlett's statement in a boardroom in a conference.  ONE guy understands the exponential.  He tries to convince the group that at time X, the expectations will be 32x present.  The rest of the room can't grasp it and they say, naw, it won't be higher than double now (because they did a linear extrapolation).  Smart guy uses maths on the board.  Rest of group doesn't get it and VOTES that their estimation is correct.  The decision comes out which is provably, mathematically, apodictically WRONG.

This is the Downing Effect; it happens ALL THE TIME.  I have nothing but issues at work with these people because I am expected to SELL or use political means to make the right outcome happen.  The truth simply doesn't cut it.

I would wager that most of the Congressclowns have the "pure heart, empty head" that we discussed in law school.  They don't know, they can't grasp, so they hide in the safety of superior numbers or else wrongly believe that such a thing is simply beyond ANYONE's grasp (because they don't get it).

The Law (the Constitution) is NOT all we have to defend ourselves from fascist governments.  Laws never protect people. Laws provide a code of conduct. Governments are instituted to define this code and provide punishment for those who violate it. When the government itself is the law-breaker, we have a God-given right... nay, a DUTY to replace that government.

 

The two things that ACTUALLY protect us from fascist government are actually related:

 

1) government fearing revolution

2) revolution

 

Lets pray the first works, because the second will really suck.

I don't mean to get technical to the point of triviality, but I actually think it's significant that people should realize that the Constitution is more a restriction on the laws that government be allowed to enact, rather than a law or regulation itself.

The Constitution protects inherent RIGHTS & LIBERTIES from the infringement of governmental overreaching (which are often in the form of laws or regulations), whereas laws & regulations must not offend the Constitution (and therefore, the inherent rights and liberties of citizens) in order to be enforced and/or upheld - there are different litmus tests employed by the courts to determine whether laws do or do not violate the constitution, based on the area or matter that the purported law pertains to, such as strict scrutiny, etc. (ultimately the constitutionality of which are ultimately decided upon by the judicial branch - when an appropriate challenge on constitutional grounds has been lodged).

We need not do anything affirmative to avail ourselves of the protection against governmental abuse the Constitution guarantees. The protections of rights and liberties it offers are a shield of protection, and do not have to be actively utilized, like a sword.

*2 great examples of passive protections of rights and liberties protected by the Constitution are 1) the right to just and fair compensation in the event of government taking of property, and 2) the right to bear arms.  As we now know, the rights recognized by the Constitution depend on both all branches of government, but especially the judicial branch, as it alone has the ability to overrule legislative and executive branch abuses of the Constitution.

THAT IS PRECISELY HOW all-white nations like Norway are at the top every year.  They DO NOT HAVE blacks and hispanics as 25% of their population causing their violent crime rates to be more than quadruple what they would otherwise be nor dragging down their average scores and achievement levels in schools.

Blacks at EVERY INCOME GROUP trail whites in the same group in average SAT scores by 140 points.  Again, IN EVERY INCOME GROUP.  Rich black kids score as well as POOR white kids.  You can very easily look this shit up.

As far as crime goes, blacks commit homicide at 10x the rate of whites.  One group of 5% of the population commits more than half the crime.  Hispanics commit the lion's share of the remainder.  In an integrated city like NYC, well in excess of 90% of the homicides and shootings were by these TWO GROUPS.  The numbers of them committed by asians or whites was almost statistically NEGLIGIBLE.

I have no HATE, you fucking RETARD.  In fact, no sooner do I say what I say than YOU SHOW UP to not only DEFEND, but REINFORCE the MSM message of racial equality.

You can either trust the MSM on this or you can trust the DATA and your lyin' eyes.  I find it ODD that so many of you can't get through a paragraph without blasting the MSM for having a propaganda agenda and being nothing but prevaricators and yet, ON THIS ONE TOPIC, you not only say they speak the truth, but you go even further to excoriate ANYONE who questions it.

The whole educational system needs to "go down", too.  It is proven to be a globalist/communist/Agenda 21 indoctrination mind-control Tavistock dehumanizing prison system.

The only way to "return to America's greatness" is to destroy the current "education" system and allow free individuals to create TRUE education.  I have learned more in my 5 year self-education than I learned in all of my years of INDOCTRINATION!

Ron Paul is the only sane voice in the chorus of global madness.

 

Umm...not really.  He isn't the only sane voice, he just happens to have a particular platform and stands out because he is surrounded by drones.  But irrespective of how correct he may be, I don't think it's a particularly far-reaching voice because it emanates from within the system.  Paul makes for a nice hero, but I think it's misplaced to marvel at him as a solution. 

Again, irrespective of how correct he may be, he's not going to be the next President.  He's not shaped any legislation that actually gets passed.  The fact is that things have gotten markedly worse since he's been a Congressman.  Is that his fault?  Of course not.  But it gets to the heart of whether he can be anything but a sane voice.

Just my two cents...

Why do you think he can't get any legislation passed? Huh?

Answer:  Because the entire Congress is a bunch of bitches for the New World Order and a traitor of the Constitution.

What do you want?  For him to gain "consensus" and compromise his principles simply to get an f-ing bill passed?

Settle down, dawg.  If you want to solve the problem, follow your own advice (see your 'Answer') and work on replacing the people around him.  That has a higher probability of success than wishing Paul into the Presidency.

Sorry for being truthful and practical. 

BTW, I'm sure you're aware that the first record of Hegelian Dialectic occurred during Paul's second missionary journey, as recorded in the book of Acts.  Might be interesting for you to review how Paul and Philo dealt with the Sophists.  :D

I can only "solve the problem" of Congress in the smallest of ways, restricted to my own district.  Others would have to participate in this "change", but unfortunately, the electorate is extremely ignorant of the true principles of liberty.

Glad to see you know your Dialectic info!  I will be honest that I did not think about Paul's interaction with the sophists (Acts 17) in that way.  Of course,  I am sure they had quite the lively discussion in Athens.  I know he tried to appeal to their form of philosophy...trying to "speak their language".  He was only partially successful.

Actually, Paul has a very good chance of defeating Obama IF he wins the GOP nomination.  His huge, passionate support base combined with the GOP faithful should be more than sufficient to unseat the current occupant.  Without his support base, the GOP has no chance with any of the "top tier" ruptured ducks they parade as candidates and the big O is virtually assured a second term.

It's all a matter of just how bad the GOP wants Obama gone.

I have my Dow 12000 hat (purchased in 1999) and my Ron Paul hat out.

Which one should I embrace and wear?

The Dow 12000 hat is frayed and shabby looking from being put on and taken off so many times, and it reeks of rat & cockroach infested garbage (the kind found in the dark recesses that lurk within allegedly grandiose Manhattan skyscrapers).

The Ron Paul hat looks just purchased, despite being quite old, and has an aroma to it reminiscent of [m]ayflowers, freedom and rationality.

 

*Ron Paul - One of the select few, and possibly only, legislator in the modern era who has remained steadfastly respectful of  the Constitution of the United States as the ultimate check on government expansion, the concept that the United States is a Republic that is governed by law based on Constitutional principles & Constitutional RIGHTS of the citizenry, and not the varying opinions or decrees of men, and that the government is to be retrained, and not empowered, by our Constitution. Whatever one thinks of particular opinions Dr. Paul holds, it can not be denied that he forms his votes based not on popular sentiment of the time or corrupt lobbyist/corporate/MIC/CronyKleptocratic influence (or even his own personal, individualistic beliefs), but rather, he forms his votes based on an objective analysis of what our Constitution either states or does not state (and speaking of 'states,' Ron Paul is all for the federalist notion that states should be far more free of federal mandates, also consistent with the Constitution).

All in all, the Republicans are offering up a pretty poor choice, nobody really first class. I wonder why.  Mitt Romney is at least presentable, though his religion is quite unacceptable (not to mention ridiculous) and he is an also ran.  I don't suppose it really matters, as it will be meet the new boss, same as the old boss.

Example the Hawaii Senate Race, in which Rasmussen showed the incumbent 13 points ahead, although in actuality Inouye won by 53[24] – a difference of 40 points, or "the largest error ever recorded in a general election in FiveThirtyEight’s database, which includes all polls conducted since 1998".

Regarding Ron Paul and the gaggle of diluting puppets the prime time debates surround Dr. Paul with: The problem may be due to the unmentioned fact that too many American males spent way too much time playing with their sisters' Ken and Barbie dolls.

But, they're truthful in that, right...?

How can you people believe that they are liars but that this is the ONE THING in which they are really being truthful?

Much of NPR's funding comes from the Rockerfeller funds, and since they are the principal owners/benefactors of the Fed system they won't let NPR break radio silence on Ron Paul. I have supported all my local NPR stations for years, but from this moment on Pacifica/KPFK is the only one I'll be supporting.

NPR - What a joke.  I get my daily humor from the accented, 'left-wing', war and police state propaganda over there.  I love the monthly money drives when they sucker locals into sending in bits of money, thinking their funding is all dried up, in between advertisements that the Bill and Linda Gates Foundation, the Brookings Institute, Soros, and other Oligarch's Foudations are the other charitable givers.  It is humorous and nauseating at the same time.  They try to keep us Ron Pauler callers off the air but we never cease to get through on nearly every subject.

NPR is a fraudulent propaganda enterprise hiding under a disguise of as an independent and unbiased intellectual news agency.

In reality

·         It news programming are coming straight from BBC (UK government department of Propaganda)

·         NPR domestic & international programming and reviews are under strict control of Zionists, Israeli Mossad, and CIA

·         It actively & unquestionably promotes government agendas and policies specifically homosexuality, perversion, and justification of depriving US citizens from their civic rights

In other words, NPR is a Zionist & Neo-con enterprise masquerading itself as an independent and unbiased intellectual news agency.

Hasn't anyone figured out that this isn't a Republic or a Democracy anymore??? We're in a dictatorship and nothing short of a revolution is going to change that!!!

BAC is slowly working inexorably back down towards $5 again.

They could pump all the resources the country has into it, but if it isn't going to change and become a good company what difference does it make? None!!

Bernanke ought to be realizing this by now. The problem is how to dissolve or let the banks go with minimal systemic disruption. That's not going to be easy.

actually 'me and bobby mcgee' was written by kris kristofferson. 

not being picky but it is a quote, and i would hate to see the derivative version get the credit when the actual asset is ignored

Kris Kristofferson = Rhodes Scholar.  I guess they let one good person in that shitty club.  Isn't Whitney Tilson a Rhodes Scholar?

>The cause of suffering is desire - Buddha

Yet Buddha did not have a catatonic, vegetative existence. Uttering that statement shows that even he was driven to act by felt uneasiness.
