Mainstream Reporter Tells The Truth About Audit The Fed And The Creation Of The Federal Reserve

When someone in the mainstream media goes out on a limb to tell the truth, then the rest of us should go out of our way to applaud that effort.  Reporter Ben Swann of Fox 19 in Cincinnati is one of the few local television reporters in the United States that consistently tackles the tough issues.  As you can see from his "Reality Check" archives, he regularly does reports on the Federal Reserve, the emerging police state, the loss of our freedoms and liberties, the advance of globalism, the economic collapse, political corruption, etc. etc.  That is one reason why his YouTube channel is rapidly approaching a million views.  In his most recent Reality Check, Ben Swann asked this question: "Is auditing the Federal Reserve really necessary?"  In just four minutes, Swann covered the creation of the Federal Reserve, where money comes from, the 16 trillion dollars in secret loans given out by the Fed during the last financial crisis, and why an audit of the Fed is so important.  It really was extraordinary to watch a local mainstream news reporter tell the truth about these things.  We could definitely use about 1000 more reporters just like him.

The video of Ben Swann's recent Reality Check is posted below.  If you have not seen it yet, it is definitely worth the 4 minutes that it takes to watch it....

What in the world would this country look like if we had hundreds of other real journalists such as Ben Swann that were willing to tackle these kinds of issues head on?

Certainly nobody is perfect, but when a reporter like Swann is willing to go out on a limb and attack the Fed we need to applaud his efforts.

The mainstream media is supposed to hold those in positions of power accountable.

But most in the mainstream media treat the Federal Reserve with kid gloves.  It is incredibly rare to hear any real criticism of the Fed by mainstream reporters.

If the mainstream media was actually doing their job, then perhaps we could get some answers to some questions that have gone unanswered for a very long time.

For example, Zero Hedge has published a "smoking gun" that proves that the Federal Reserve was heavily involved in manipulating the price of gold long after the gold standard was abandoned.  If you have not read that piece yet, you can find it right here.

I would love to know to what extent this is still going on today, and why nobody ever asks Federal Reserve Chairman Ben Bernanke about this.

Another mystery that I would like to see addressed is the trillions of dollars of "off balance sheet transactions" that are unaccounted for at the Federal Reserve.  This was brought up once during a Congressional hearing, but nobody seemed to have any answers.  Video from this hearing is posted below....

As you can see from the video, nobody in the federal government seems to have any idea what is really going on over at the Fed.

But the Fed has more power over our economy and over our financial system than anyone else does.

Isn't it about time that the American people got some answers?

The Federal Reserve is at the very heart of our debt-based financial system that was created by the big Wall Street banks and for the benefit of the big Wall Street banks.

The Federal Reserve (and virtually every other central bank in the world) is not accountable to the people.  The Federal Reserve has created a perpetual debt bubble that is designed to systematically transfer the wealth of the American people to the banks.  In this system, the total amount of money and the total amount of debt is designed to continually expand.

Since the Federal Reserve was created, the value of the U.S. dollar has declined by well over 95 percent and the U.S. national debt has gotten more than 5000 times larger.

But nobody seems to want to hold the Federal Reserve accountable for any of this.

Just what in the world is going on here?

In a previous article about auditing the Fed, I listed some more questions that I would like to see someone ask the Federal Reserve....

If the Federal Reserve is supposed to prevent shocks to our economy, then why have there been 10 different economic recessions since 1950 and why are we about to enter another one?

Was the Federal Reserve involved in the manipulation of Libor?

What role did the Federal Reserve play in creating the housing bubble that resulted in our unprecedented housing crash?

Why has the value of the U.S. dollar fallen by 83 percent since 1970?

Why is the Federal Reserve paying U.S. banks not to lend money?

Why did Barack Obama nominate Ben Bernanke for a second term as head of the Federal Reserve when Bernanke has a track record of failure that makes the Chicago Cubs look like a roaring success?

Why is the U.S. national debt more than 5000 times larger than it was when the Federal Reserve was created in 1913?

Why were the Federal Reserve and the personal income tax both pushed through Congress in the same year in 1913?

Why does the Federal Reserve argue that it is "not an agency" of the federal government in court?

Why do all 187 nations that belong to the IMF have a central bank?

Most Americans are pinning their hopes for an "economic turnaround" on the upcoming election in November.

But the truth is that until something is done about the Federal Reserve it isn't going to matter very much who is in the White House.

As I wrote about yesterday, the total amount of all debt in America has grown from about 2 trillion dollars to nearly 55 trillion dollars over the past 40 years.

Yes, we should blame the American people for being really stupid about debt, but we also need to keep in mind that this is exactly what the debt-based Federal Reserve system was designed to do.

We have been enslaved by design and most Americans do not even realize what has happened.

Let us encourage reporters like Ben Swann to keep speaking out about the Federal Reserve, and the rest of us need to keep speaking out about the Fed too.

          Yea, not so much the tea party as evidenced by the accusations against the TP by people like you. You know, idiots like you out there trying to tell people that the Tea Party are a bunch of violent, racist extremists here to kill people.

          No matter how much you try to project your own Democratic/OWS philosophy onto the TP, the proof is in the thousands of pictures and videos on the web of both groups.

        I read that book about 20 years ago. It’s a tad difficult to comprehend in parts for a layman. Edward Griffin did a super job with his research. It left no stone unturned and that adds to it’s complexity. It’s all there but the thing is as thick as the Bible.

        When the most powerful and wealthy people go out of their way to travel and meet in secret and then get their laws passed when everyone is away at Christmas it does not take a rocket scientist to figure out something is really wrong.

        The fox was put in charge of the chicken coop. Things we’re never the same after that.

        most people think the idea for the federal reserve started at Jekyll Island but it actually came from Philip Dru, Administrator, a book by Colonel Edward Mandell House in 1911.this was a plan for the future government of the United States, “which would establish socialism as dreamed by Karl Marx.according to HOusew, this novel predicted the enactment of the graduated income tax, excess profits tax, unemployment insurance, Social security and a flexible currency system.This was the blue print followed by both the Wilson and FDR administration. There is a free down load of the book Philip Dru, Administrator on the Internet.

  • chiller

    This info. is from http://mykindred.com/cloud/TX/Documents/dollar/
    It’s a time line from 1800 to 2010 with year, cpi, dollar value and historical events. Reviewing this, it becomes clear the Fed has systematically destroyed our currency. For the first 100 years, our currency and economy operated with normal cyclical oscillations, the dollar never going to low, cpi never going too high. When the Fed took over in 1913, that all changed. With the exception of small adjustments for the Great Depression and WWII, our currency has plummeted. Not even after WWII, when the US was THE only engine of economic growth left on the planet, did our currency rise. Why? Because the Fed knew we were too busy rebuilding and enjoying the prosperity to notice their skimming tactics in progress. Today, they’re not so discrete.
    Dollar values are based on 1967 dollar value since this was the first time cpi hit 100. CPI, consumer Price Index, is what we pay for items. The highest it got the first 100 years was 63, right after the war of 1812. It only took the Fed 7 years to hit cpi of 60 and the dollar dropped 50%, doubling costs from 1913 to 1920. The year before the Fed, cpi was 29, dollar was $3.44. Today the dollar in less than 14 cents and cpi over 650. This is all proof positive of a diabolical plan to destroy our nation, by design or through greed, and it makes no difference which one is correct. The end result should be the arrest and prosecution of EVERYONE involved at all levels, EVERYWHERE!

    Ignorance has been forced on the American people thru Forced Government Schooling. They misinform rather than educate the students on every subject and avoid altogether classes on the Constitution of the United States and the philosophy behind it, and of course the Federal Reserve, which most people think is a branch of the Government. Students are conditioned to be slaves and operate in a Prison like environment. They are not there to be educated. The only way to recondition the American Public to the founding principles of Liberty is to end Forced Government Schooling and put it in an eternal grave, never to be resurrected but marked with a gravestone of FRAUD against the minds of Americans.

      Get the fed and the state govs out of our children’s education and open it up soley to a families choice…

      to choose in the free market place where there is competition without fed intervention, and let the consumer decide what’s best,…. it will stimulate the local economy and put the governments on austerity.

      Parents will get a much better bang for the buck, more choices…. even if they can’t educate them themselves.

    We gave the Fed all the rope they wanted and they took it. All we have to do is wait while they finsih hanging themselves. It’s not like they are going to be able to scramble out of what they have done.

    The up side is, they have cut their own throat and down side is that a lot of people may not live to see them pay for what they done.

    Our guy Swann did an excellent report….but to be fair, a lot of media people have been screaming, yelling and jumping up and down over the fed for a really long time….that a TV news reporter caught on to them hardly seems cause to claim that a sea change event has happened?

  • Note from Idaho

  • Prepared Pastor

    Interesting, but irrelevant. Hindsight is 20/20 and we could entertain ourselves with discussion or as I often tell my friends ‘shut up and do something.’

    We have the power to take ourselves almost entirely off the books, but instead the majority puts most of their efforts into earning Federal Reserve Notes (IOU Nothing) because it is the easier path.

    30 Year Mortgage
    vs
    Wait for a good deal on land.
    Build a garage and live in it.
    Build the house and raise our family.

    Drive to work.
    Eat out for lunch.
    Earn Money.
    Pay income and/or SS taxes.
    Buy eggs and KFC.
    Pay sales tax on food (some states).
    vs
    Raise chickens.
    Collect eggs.
    Butcher chickens.

    We don’t have to do everything ourselves, but if we do not do some things ourselves we have nothing to barter with. Economies throughout history have been a cycle of boom and bust. The time for bust is long overdue because the economy has been artificially propped up. If you think the bust is here you ain’t seen nothin yet. May as well do for yourself now as you will have no choice later.

    “Why…? Why…? Why…?”

    A good place to get a better idea on what is happening is surprisingly the book of Genesis and the story of Joseph and the Pharaoh’s dream (the seven fat and seven lean cows). Though I do not believe in divine intervention there is a kernel of truth to the story of how a prosperous people can be driven into debt by a combination of natural disaster and market manipulations. People in debt eventually become slaves of those who hold the notes.

Secondly, there is no such thing as a “Democrat Congressman.” There are “Democratic Congressment,” who are members of the Democratic Party. Rush Limbaugh started substituting “Democrat” for “Democratic” because he felt it was some sort of inssult.

    What’s the difference between the U.S. Federal Reserve and central banks of other countries?

    1) The U.S. Fed thinks it runs monetary and economic policies of both America and the world. And conducts its sorry business as instrument of a private banking empire. In fact, it is an exact duplicate of the old British Empire of the 17th – 20th century, without the guns. Unless, of course, the Fed and the DoD gangs up – then you have a true 19th century imperial empire running around the world plundering and killing. The most recent evidence of that is call the Bush II Era. It’s no wonder that when you add the shock of a 9/11, add neocon imperial ideology, add the arrogance of a Bush ‘you’re with me or against me’ & ‘bring ‘em on’ policy, add the unfettered money power of a Fed and its cronies, and finally add the might of a DoD eager to so some ‘shock & awe’, and you have 5 decades of accumulated wealth and reputation destroyed within 8 years.

    2) Other central banks issue fiat currencies under strict legal and administrative controls from governments. U.S. Fed issue fiat currency to flood the world in dollar, under nobody’s law or control.

    3) The mandates of other central banks are narrow and controlled – all issue currencies under strict guidelines. Some have financial regulatory powers. All are owned by the government but operate at arms-length. Only the U.S. Fed, however, received total unfettered powers from Congress on both monetary and economic policies, WITHOUT supervision and audit. It is a de facto financial sovereign within a national sovereign.

    And now, after decades of this cancer at work, the reality and facts have begun to be realized. What shall we call this cancer that takes the country and the dollar-dominated world and pumps them like whores? Let me hear your imagination.

      And yes, “truth seekers” in the mainstream media tend not to have very long careers.

    The Federal Reserve is not part of the Government. It is an independent entity that controls the money of the world. Our government has really no control of the Federal Reserve. This name is has nothing to do with how it operates. As an example what does the word “official football” mean other than it is a football. Likewise “Federal” is just a diversion of their activity.

    I saw this a couple of days ago and my jaw dropped when he brought up Jekyll Island. This gentleman does a lot of these reports, bringing up topics you rarely see on the local news and he doesn’t pull many punches. From his bio, he has an Edward R. Murrow award and two Emmys.

    Here’s the link to all of his “Reality Check” reports.

    Read the history of the Rothschild dynasty and “Creature from Jekyll Island” by Edward Griffin.
    Griffin’s work is easy to read and very accurate! Thanks Ed.

    ***********, among many others, tried to warn every-one.

    I don’t propose a federal budget. The President does. I don’t have the Constitutional authority to vote on appropriations. The House of Representatives does. I don’t write the tax code, Congress does. I don’t set fiscal policy, Congress does. I don’t control monetary policy, the Federal Reserve Bank does. One hundred senators, 435 congressmen, one President, and nine Supreme Court justices equates to 545 human beings out of the 300 million are directly, legally, morally, and individually responsible for the domestic problems that plague this country. I excluded the members of the Federal Reserve Board because that problem was created by the Congress in 1913, and has yet to be corrected!!! Although the Federal Reserve Board is peppered with Low Life Criminals that you allow to stay in power. And why$$$$
    I excluded all the special interests and lobbyists for a sound reason. They have no legal authority. They have no ability to coerce a senator, a congressman, or a President to do one cotton-picking thing. I don’t care if they offer a politician $1 million dollars in cash. The politician has the power to accept or reject it. No matter what the lobbyist promises, it is the legislator’s responsibility to determine how he/she votes.
    It seems inconceivable to me that a nation of 300 million cannot replace 545 people who stand convicted — by present facts — of incompetence and irresponsibility. I can’t think of a single domestic problem that is not traceable directly to those 545 people. When you fully grasp the plain truth that 545 people exercise the power of the federal government, then it must follow that what exists is what they want to exist.
    If the tax code is unfair, it’s because YOU want it unfair. If the budget is in the red, it’s because YOU want it in the red. If the Army & Marines are in Iraq and Afghanistan it’s because YOU want them in Iraq and Afghanistan.
    If they do not receive social security but are on an elite retirement plan not available to the citizens, it’s because they want it that way. By the way you politicians are the people who put social security into General Revenue and then robbed us blind.
    Democrats and Republicans alike for decades have wanted to balance the budget. What seems to be the problem???
