Pelosi: Federal Reserve Needs More Transparency

By Ben Pershing

Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) said this morning that the Federal Reserve should operate with more transparency, one day after President Obama unveiled a financial regulatory overhaul that would give increased authority to the central bank.

"The fact is that the American people want to know more of the 'Secrets of the Temple,'" Pelosi said at her weekly press conference, referring to the 20-year-old book on the Fed she called "required reading in my day."

Even as Obama proposes to give the Fed more power to regulate firms and markets, an increasing number of members of Congress have expressed unease about the bank's growing reach and the murkiness of its finances. A bill authored by Rep. Ron Paul (R-Texas) calling for a full audit of the Fed's books by the U.S. Comptroller General now has a bipartisan group of 234 co-sponsors.

Pelosi said she did not know the specific details of Paul's bill, but did make clear she wanted to know more about the Fed's balance sheet, particularly since the central bank stepped in to bail out the insurance giant AIG last fall.

"Many of us were, shall we say, not surprised [but] taken aback when the Fed had $80 billion to put into AIG just out of the blue," Pelosi recalled. "All of the sudden you wake up one morning and AIG is receving $80 billion from the Fed. So of course we're saying, 'Where is this money coming from?'" And, she said, the Fed responded: "'Oh, we have it, and not only that, we have more.'"

Pelosi did not criticize any of Obama's financial overhaul proposals, nor did she provide any specifics on how oversight of the Fed should be increased. But, she said, "a balance has to be struck between what is required to run the Fed in a responsible way [and] what transparency there should be, so as the Fed assumes even more power... the American people have more knowledge about it."

Campaign for Liberty Applauds Senator Jim DeMint's Leadership on Audit the Fed Bill

Posted by Matt Hawes on 06/23/09 5:37 PM

C4L's latest press release:

ALEXANDRIA, Va.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Ron Paul's Campaign for Liberty today issued high praise for Senator Jim DeMint and his leadership on legislation to bring transparency to the Federal Reserve and our nation's monetary policy.

Last week, Senator DeMint became the first Republican to support S. 604, The Federal Reserve Sunshine Act of 2009. This week he has taken to the airwaves to help build momentum for this bill, including a nationally televised appearance today on Fox News' Glen Beck Show.

S. 604 is the companion to H.R. 1207, legislation introduced in the House of Representatives by Congressman Ron Paul, which currently stands with 237 cosponsors, a majority of the House.

"The Federal Reserve wields tremendous power and is at the center of our current economic storm of deficits, debt and bailouts."

"Senator Jim DeMint understands that in order to solve our problems, America needs transparency and accountability at our nation's central bank," said Campaign for Liberty President John Tate.

HR1207 Update - 242 Co-sponsors

THE LATEST FIVE TO OPEN THEIR EYES!

6/24/09

Rep Cantor, Eric [VA-7] - 6/23/2009
Rep Space, Zachary T. [OH-18] - 6/23/2009
Rep Conyers, John, Jr. [MI-14] - 6/23/2009
Rep Sherman, Brad [CA-27] - 6/23/2009
Rep Snyder, Vic [AR-2] - 6/23/2009


Conyers, by the way, is an influential Democrat who chairs the Judiciary Committee. He is far-left and totally secure in his district seat. That he is a co-sponsor proves that any Democrat will potentially co-sponsor this bill.



Posted by dljholt on 06/24/09 07:29 AM

Congratulations, C4L Patriots! Not only are there now 242 co-sponsors for HR1207, but we turned up the heat and Eric Cantor felt it. He signed on as a co-sponsor Tuesday, June 23, 2009.

The following five Virginia Congressmen are still holding out:

Rep. Glenn C. Nye (VA-2)
Rep. Robert (Bobby) C. Scott (VA-3)
Rep. Jim Moran (VA-8)
Rep. Rick Boucher (VA-9)
Rep. Gerald (Gerry) E. Connolly (VA-11)

Call your representative who has not signed on today and demand that he co-sponsor HR1207.

Suggested script:

Dear Congressman ________________,

I want you to join your colleagues in Virginia CD1, CD4, CD5, CD6, CD7, CD10 and 236 other representatives across the country in co-sponsoring and supporting the Federal Reserve Transparency Act, H.R. 1207.

Since 1913, our dollar has lost more than 95% of its purchasing power.

HR 1207 amends section 714 of Title 31 of the U.S. Code to remove the restrictions on how the Government Accountability Office (GAO) can audit the Federal Reserve.

With these limitations gone, the Fed's discount window operations, funding facilities, open market operations, and agreements with foreign central banks and governments would all finally be open to congressional oversight. The GAO would be required to audit the Fed by the end of 2010 and to report its findings to Congress.

Sincerely,
(your name)

3) Sign the petition and ask all your family, friends, neighbors, and co-workers to sign, too.

Even if you've contacted your representatives before, do so again. We can't let up now.

Let's make this happen, patriots!!!

For liberty,

Donna Holt

Interim State Coordinator

Ron Paul at Cato: ‘Audit the Fed’

Posted by Chris Moody
June 24, 2009

When Texas Congressman and former Republican presidential candidate Ron Paul speaks about transparency in the Federal Reserve, he sums up his argument with one simple question. Why not?

“Why in the world should this much power be given to a Federal Reserve that has the authority to create $1 trillion secretly?” Ron Paul asked a standing room-only crowd today at the Cato Institute.

Paul was on a panel of speakers, including Gilbert Schwartz, former associate general counsel to the Federal Reserve, to discuss a new bill that will audit the Fed for the first time in its history. This comes at a time when the Fed’s balance sheet has almost tripled, from just over $800 billion before the financial crisis to almost $2.3 trillion now.

“We will only win when the people wake up and realize that transparency is what we need,” said Paul. “When we know exactly what’s happening, there will be monetary reform.”

Hear the rest of Paul’s comments below:

In response to a Bloomberg News lawsuit (See Post #8), "The Fed [has] refused. . . to disclose the names of the borrowers and the loans, alleging that it would cast 'a stigma' on recipients of more than $1.9 trillion of emergency credit from U.S. taxpayers and the assets the central bank is accepting as collateral."

For too long, the Fed has enjoyed the monopoly privileges that only big government can provide while demanding private sector levels secrecy and independence from government inquiry -- and then some. What a timely occasion for Ron Paul's Audit the Fed bill (See Post #3).

Ron Paul talks with U.S. News and World Report

Posted by Andrew Ward on 06/26/09 12:11 PM

On Wednesday, Matthew Bandyk sat down with Congressman Ron Paul to talk about the Federal Reserve's role in fostering the financial crisis.

Exclusive Conversation With Ron Paul: The Future Of The Federal Reserve

President Obama's financial regulatory plan has created controversy over the role of the Federal Reserve in our economy like rarely before. The person in Congress with perhaps the most unconventional point of view on these issues in American politics is Congressman and former presidential candidate Ron Paul (R-TX), a longtime critic of the very institution of the Fed and fractional reserve banking. He has recently sponsored a bill that would audit the Fed, which has attracted co-sponsors such as Dennis Kucinich (D-OH).

I just ran across this interview again earlier today and it continues to ring true. It's such a great 5 minutes.

Ron Paul on Coast to Coast

"I'm a very strong self-critic and I always look at my flaws." Ron Paul

Video (5:23):

Comment from youtube viewer Drg0nzo1:

Ron Paul is just too honest and blunt for Americans. We are a very sensitive bunch of people in all actuality. We tend to dislike people, and even feel insulted when they point out problems with our country. Especially if our "party" is currently holding office.

The truth isn't always a fun thing to hear, but i would rather hear the devastating truth of our current situation than a bunch of feel good BS.

Bernanke Threatens if Fed is Audited

Posted by CJLKAS on 06/28/09 04:33 AM

At a recent House Oversight Committee Meeting, Fed Chairman Ben Bernanke threatened destruction of the dollar and the US economy if the Fed was audited. Notice how he calls it a "takeover" of monetary policy by Congress if HR 1207 were to pass. Someone needs to school Mr. Bernanke that, under the Constitution, monetary policy belongs to the Congress - not the Fed.

Ron Paul, Dr. Popular

Posted by Andrew Ward on 06/30/09 09:46 AM

Fox News' Judson Berger covers Ron Paul's successful efforts to gain bipartisan Congressional support for HR 1207, The Federal Reserve Transparency Act of 2009.

Mr. Popular? Ron Paul Wins Supporters to Fed Sunshine Bill

All of a sudden, Congress is paying close attention to Ron Paul.

Quote:
The feisty congressman from Texas, whose insurgent "Ron Paul Revolution" presidential campaign rankled Republican leaders last year, now has the GOP House leadership on his side -- backing a measure that generated paltry support when he first introduced it 26 years ago.

Paul, as of Tuesday, has won 245 Co-sponsors to a bill that would require a full-fledged audit of the Federal Reserve by the end of 2010.

Audit the Fed and C4L: Gathering Steam

CQ Politics' Emily Cadel covers Ron Paul and Campaign for Liberty's efforts to promote a legitimate audit of the Federal Reserve.

Ron Paul's 'Audit the Fed' Bill Gathers Steam

Quote:
At the heart of Paul's anti-Fed crusade, as well as his other ventures, is the grass-roots lobbying organization Campaign for Liberty, a home base for his fervent band of presidential supporters. The organization was launched just over a year ago with cash left over from his bid for the GOP nomination. The 501(c)4 non-profit group claims a quarter-million members and says it has 20 full-time employees and coordinators in all 50 states.

"Ron Paul Strikes Gold"

Posted by Matt Hawes on 07/03/09 11:32 AM

Reuters reprints an article from The Big Money's Chadwick Matlin about Dr. Paul's leadership of an historic bipartisan effort to bring transparency to the Federal Reserve:

Quote:
Thus we come to the audit. For Paul it's a foot in the door to a much larger goal. To the 244 co-sponsors-74 of them Democrats-it's a way to show their constituents that they're worried, too, about where taxpayer dollars are going. It's an amusing dissonance between the leader of the rebellion and his revolutionaries. The two parties are after entirely separate goals, one (transparency) vastly more achievable than the other (the end of the Federal Reserve).

This again makes Paul's coalition all the more remarkable. The distrust of the Fed has reached a point at which a majority of House members are following a radical into battle. Congress' frustration was evident last month when Bernanke got roasted in front of Congress, putting his future as Fed chairman and the health of Obama's regulatory plan in doubt....SEE POST #86 THIS PAGE (also posted by Northern Santuary under Economy and Currency)

Breaking News on Audit the Fed!

Posted by Matt Hawes on 07/06/09 7:46 PM

Today, our battle to pass Audit the Fed through the U.S. Senate has been joined. The first shot was fired on the floor of the Senate tonight by Senator Jim DeMint of South Carolina.



Senator DeMint has a well-deserved reputation for taking the battle to the other side in the Senate, and tonight he once again proved why he is such a valuable ally in our fight to bring transparency and accountability to the Federal Reserve.

Occasionally, a chance comes along to take quick action on a bill, and Senator DeMint took just such an opportunity.

The U.K.'s Telegraph, using a study by a former Fed official, examines how U.S. interest rates may soon double (at least):

In a 2003 paper, Thomas Laubach, the US Federal Reserve's senior economist, calculated the impact on long-term interest rates of rising fiscal deficits and soaring national debt. Applying his assumptions to the recent spike in the US fiscal deficit and national debt, long-term interests rates will double from their current 3.5pc....

Rothschild's Federal Reserve Must Be Abolished

Allen L Roland, Ph.D.
The Peoples Voice
July 6, 2009

The history of the Federal Reserve is an ongoing battle between the Banking elite and the people and anyone who gets in the way is usually crushed. Bush and Obama's top down Wall Street bank bailout, at the expense of Main Street, is a good example of why Rothschild's Federal Reserve must be audited and eventually abolished: Allen L Roland

The Fed (which is not even a government agency, but rather a private corporation consisting of mostly foreign bankers and answers to no one) dictates America's financial policies and is the obvious conduit for the banking elite to control the financial world and, in particular, the New World Order.

And now Obama wants to give even more power to the Fed as Eliot Spitzer writes today in Slate ~ "The Fed botched banking regulation once already. So why does Obama want to give it more power? "Spitzer goes on to elaborate on the main problem with the Fed ~ "The United States should not lightly put our fate back in the hands of the very entity whose oversight of the economy and financial sector brought us into the abyss. The Fed's lack of accountability and transparency is no longer justified by its record or sound principles or public policy. Granting the power without asking the tough questions would be following the path of least resistance ~ Has any thought been given to refocusing on a financial services model that has more smaller institutions and fewer mega banks, thus diversifying risk? Others, no doubt, will have more probing questions for the Fed; and President Obama, Treasury Secretary Timothy Geithner, and Congress should listen to them before they grant the Fed vast new powers."http://www.slate.com/id/2221898/

To fully understand the Fed ~ you must review its dark history of greed and manipulation which begins with the Rothschild's.

TIME LINE OF THE ROTHSCHILD OWNED FEDERAL RESERVE BANK

1791-1811: Rothschild's First Bank of the United States.

1816-1836: Rothschild's Second Bank of the United States.

1837-1862: Free Banking Era - no formal Central Bank through the efforts of President Andrew Jackson, who , according to Jackson, the Rothschild's later tried to assassinate.

1862-1913: System of National Banks through the efforts of President Andrew Jackson.

In 1862 Abraham Lincoln issued his own fiat money to finance the Civil War and bucked the New York Banks who wanted to charge the government 24- 30% interest on any loans. Lincoln was assassinated on April 14, 1865.

President James Garfield tried to buck the banks and was assassinated on July 2, 1881.

1913-Current: President Wilson Federal Reserve Act creates a consortium of privately held Jewish & associated banks called the Federal Reserve Bank. The largest shareholders of the Federal Reserve Bank are the Rothschild's of London holding 57% of the stock which is not available for public trading.

On May 23 1933, Congressman Louis T. McFadden brought impeachment charges against the members of the Federal Reserve Bank. A smear campaign against McFadden ensued and he was poisoned 3 years later.

On June 4th 1963, John F Kennedy signed Executive Order 1110 which returned to the U.S. Government the power to issue currency without going through the Federal reserve. With the stroke of his pen, President Kennedy was on his way to putting the Federal Reserve Bank of New York out of business ~ for that order gave the U.S. the ability to create its own money backed by silver. Five months later on November 22, 1963 Kennedy was assassinated.

Watch this outstanding ten minute video on the ominous and treacherous path of the Rothschild's ~ a path of greed, manipulation and corruption which continues to this day under the unaudited and secretive rule of the Federal Reserve Bank.

CAPTIONED VIDEO:

Congressman Ron Paul wants to audit the Federal Reserve. His bill to do this (HR 1207) already has 55 listed co-sponsors, and Congressman Paul's website says the list will soon be up to 90. Bernie Sanders has introduced a similar bill in the Senate (S. 604). CURRENTLY 245 CO-SPONSORS OF HR 1207

Senate turns aside new attempt to scrutinize Fed

Mon Jul 6, 2009 5:59pm EDT REUTERS

Reporting by Jeremy Pelofsky and Alister Bull, editing by Dan Grebler

WASHINGTON (Reuters) - The U.S. Federal Reserve, facing growing pressure as it tries to heal the ailing economy, dodged a bullet on Monday when the U.S. Senate cast aside a new effort to increase scrutiny of the central bank.

On procedural grounds, the Senate blocked a bid to permit the U.S. comptroller general, who heads the investigative arm of Congress known as the Government Accountability Office, to audit the Federal Reserve system and issue a report.

Republican Senator Jim DeMint, who has been pushing for greater transparency at the Fed, failed to get the provision attached to the must-pass annual spending bill that includes funding for the GAO for the upcoming 2010 fiscal year.

Ron Paul's bipartisan attack on the Fed

Posted by Jesse Benton on 07/08/09 09:21 AM

On MSNBC today (HR1207 is starting to get some spotlight in the MSM.):



Quote:
Legislators are sick of not knowing what's going on inside Bernanke's fortress, especially as the Fed becomes further enmeshed in the nation's fiscal policy. Paul's little bill has become emblematic of a larger movement, one that could spell trouble for Obama's troubled regulatory plan. Ron Paul — always an enemy of regulation — is now an enemy of Obama. And a mighty powerful one at that.
