Is A Permanent “Patriot” Act Coming?

February 6, 2011

Nor Cal Truth    Feb 6, 2011

The AP notes:

Top Senate Republicans called Friday for the three powers to be made permanent — a step rejected in the original law in favor of “sunsets” to ensure regular reviews by Congress to ferret out possible abuse.

Republican Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell said doing so would give US intelligence and law enforcement officials “the highest degree of operational certainty that’s practicable.”

Interestingly enough, Mitch McConnell is making $$ yearly from groups like FOX news, Raytheon, and the Heritage Foundation. All three are incredibly suspect when comparing motive of function to necessity of function. 

Mitch McConnell’s net worth has skyrocketed from under $8 million ending 2007 to $20 million starting 2011. His State’s economic outlook is not as good as his, which brings up the obvious question of who Mr. McConnell is working for. Furthermore, as a member of the “U.S.” Chamber of Commerce, he was involved with trying to keep the 9/11 first responders from receiving more adequate healthcare.

Here are some perspectives from others against this draconian law:

Jesse Ventura Sits in for Larry King; Hosts Ron Paul and Rod Blagojevich

April 11, 2010

Jesse Ventura sits in for Larry King on the Larry King Live Show. This is pretty significant due to the book, “American Conspiracies” which Jesse authored, along with his current philosophies and political beliefs. All in all the best discussions are those that cover the War, and the lack of reviews for Jesse’s book. The two females can be a quite feisty at times, and Jesse is indeed being polite and respectful in discussion topics for Larry King while hosting his show; instead of it being an extension of Mr. Ventura’s hit TV show “Conspiracy Theory.” Hopefully this only builds more public confidence in Mr. Ventura and his questioning of the events of 9/11/01.

Afghanistan is Not the Right War

January 4, 2010

by James Corbett   Source: Global Research   Jan 4, 2010

TRANSCRIPT

If history has taught us anything, it is that we need to beware those populist politicians who claim to be men of peace by nature but men of war by necessity. The most violent wars this planet has ever seen, the most brutal regimes that have ever sought to repress their own citizens, the most genocidal schemes have always been nurtured under the leadership of politicians who offer war, violence and domination as a way of achieving peace.

Napoleon waged wars of agression in country after country, terrorizing the peoples of Europe and ravaging their lands in the name of a continent-wide peace under the French flag.

Hitler, too, assured the world that his conquests were born of necessity, a means to achieve the “living space” that the German people required to live in peace.

Vietnam, too, was a war to achieve peace. If Vietnam fell to the communists, the world was told, the dominoes would begin to fall in country after country and it would not be long before the red tide flooded Western shores.

An Answer to Bernanke

December 3, 2009

Source: CampaignForLiberty

By Ron Paul

Published 12/03/09

Federal Reserve Chairman Ben Bernanke (November 29th Washington Post) does not want us to know any of the details of the Fed’s secret operations. This position is not surprising and has been typical of all central bank chairmen.

Bernanke’s stated goal in his editorial is “To design a system of financial oversight…” that will “provide a robust framework for preventing future crises.”

During its 96 years of existence, the Federal Reserve has played havoc with our economy and brought great suffering to millions through unemployment and price escalation. In addition, it has achieved what only a central bank can: a steady depreciation of our currency. Today’s dollar is now worth four cents compared to the dollar entrusted to the Federal Reserve in 1913. Read the rest of this entry »

Congressman Watt Guts Bill to Audit the Fed

November 1, 2009

source: Washingtons Blog

Ron Paul tells Bloomberg that Congressman Watt has just more or less killed the bill to audit the fed:

   Representative Ron Paul, the Texas Republican who has called for an end to the Federal Reserve, said legislation he introduced to audit monetary policy has been “gutted”while   moving toward a possible vote in the Democratic-controlled House.

The bill, with 308 co-sponsors, has been stripped of provisions that would remove Fed exemptions from audits of transactions with foreign central banks, monetary policy deliberations, transactions made under the direction of the Federal Open Market Committee and communications between the Board, the reserve banks and staff, Paul said today.

Ron Paul’s Bill to Audit the Fed Is Now Veto-Proof

September 17, 2009

 

source: Washingtons Blog

As Kurt Nimmo previously noted:

 [Ron Paul's] Federal Reserve Transparency Act, HR 1207, [is] now up to 232 co-sponsors. It needs a two-thirds vote with 290 members on board so … Obama will not veto it.

 Ron Paul’s office has just confirmed that 290 members are now on board supporting the bill.

Here is the list of 289 supporters (plus Paul equals 290).

Obviously, support in the Senate for the parallel bill is crucial. According to Zero Hedge, there are approximately 25 co-sponsors for Sen. Bernie Sanders’ S 604 Bill, “The Federal Reserve Sunshine Act of 2009.


What the Fed is REALLY Trying to Hide In Fighting an Audit

August 5, 2009

 

source: Washingtons Blog

75% of Americans and at least 276 Congress members and 19 Senators want to audit the Fed, but the Fed is fighting tooth and nail to keep everything hidden.

Most people assume that the Fed wants to keep secret the list of banks which received bailout money. You know, something along the lines of “we gave Goldman Sachs $100 billion”.

But what the Fed is really struggling to keep hidden is the fact that the entire financial system is based on massive manipulation and fraud by the Fed and its primary dealers.

Specifically, the Fed is desperately trying to hide that many trillions of the government’s bailouts have gone to inflating the stock market, buying up the U.S. government’s own treasuries, and gaming the currency and gold markets.

Of course, when the New York Federal Reserve’s “primary dealers” (the dealers through which the Fed carries out its open market operations in general, and its PPT, ESF, and other schemes through) get the huge sums of cash from the Fed, they place bets based on inside knowledge of where the money flows are going (they also, supposedly, skim off part of the cash, but that’s for another essay).

In other words, the Fed’s primary dealers engage in insider trading and frontrunning on a scale which would make your normal white collar felons look like a silver nanoparticle.

Finally, the Fed is not the only central bank engaging in manipulation. An audit would show how the Fed is playing footsie with other private central banks in an international con game.

Don’t believe me? Show me the books and prove me wrong.
