There people working hard to see some good things done. This page links to some of them - you can investigate and decide for yourself."
The 'Audit the Fed' bill has been watered down by Senator Bernard Sanders right at the last minute (a common strategy: pretend to be a populist, then at the last minute, the politician "gives in" in the spirit of compromise). The Audit the Fed bill could go to vote in the Senate any day now.
Obama opposed the bill, until the rewrite. One can only imagine what type of pressure his administration applied to the Senate.
Bernanke opposed the bill, and even said that an audit of the Fed's monetary policy could "seriously threaten" the Fed's independence. This statement couldn't be more true. Read the full article at morphcity.com
Federal Reserve Video:Constitutional authority to "coin money and regulate the value thereof" to a consortium of private banks.
It passed the "Federal Reserve Act".
Although certain officers are appointed by the President, Congress exercises little to no oversight over the Fed's activities. The 12 regional Federal Reserve Banks are owned by the member banks who buy shares in it. All nationally chartered banks and bank holding companies are by default member banks of the Federal Reserve System.
Just a few of the powerful banks which are owners of the Federal Reserve District Banks:
Goldman Sachs Bank (San Francisco Fed)Should Americans assume that these individuals serve on the Board of the New York Fed in the public interest or in their private, corporate interests? What do you think?
Bank of America (Richmond Fed)
Morgan Stanley (San Francisco Fed)
On the Board of Directors of the New York Federal Reserve Bank:
Jamie Dimon: Chairman of the Board and Chief Executive Officer for JPMorgan Chase
Jeffrey R. Immelt: Chairman and Chief Executive Officer General Electric Company
Indra K. Nooyi: Chairman and Chief Executive Officer PepsiCo, Inc.
For example (one of many): JPMorgan Chase was able to buy up both Bear Stearns and Washington Mutual Bank for pennies on the dollar through its cozy relationship with the Federal Reserve Bank of New York and the FDIC.
On the Board of Governors of the Federal Reserve System, we find that Kevin M. Warsh was from 1995 to 2002, a member of the Mergers & Acquisitions Department of Morgan Stanley & Co., in New York, serving as Vice President and Executive Director. This is but one of many examples of the cross-pollination between the world of private, international banking and the nominally "Federal" central banking system.
Alan Greenspan, the former Chairman of the Federal Reserve, admitted recently that the Fed operates without Congressional oversight.
"Well, first of all, the Federal Reserve is an independent agency, and that means, basically, that there is no other agency of government which can overrule actions that we take. So long as that is in place and there is no evidence that the administration or the Congress or anybody else is requesting that we do things other than what we think is the appropriate thing, then what the relationships are don't, frankly, matter."The Fed is, in fact, a private corporation which has been granted a monopoly on the issuance of money by the public authority of government. It is therefore a public-private partnership--an alignment which many political scientists define as Fascism.
It is important to state that private banking control of the Federal Reserve Bank is not significant for the direct profits which member banks accrue. It is the control over the money supply, the manipulation of the general conditions of credit and debt and the POLITICAL POWER associated with the private ownership of the nation's central bank which is meaningful.
The "Federal" Reserve is Federal in name only.
It is comprised of private banks and serves private banking interests and is accountable to no public authority.
