The Federal Reserve Plans To Identify “Key Bloggers” And Monitor Billions Of Conversations About The Fed On Facebook, Twitter, Forums And Blogs

Share on FacebookTweet about this on TwitterPin on PinterestShare on Google+Share on LinkedInShare on StumbleUponEmail this to someone

The Federal Reserve wants to know what you are saying about it.  In fact, the Federal Reserve has announced plans to identify “key bloggers” and to monitor “billions of conversations” about the Fed on Facebook, Twitter, forums and blogs.  This is yet another sign that the alternative media is having a dramatic impact.  As first reported on Zero Hedge, the Federal Reserve Bank of New York has issued a “Request for Proposal” to suppliers who may be interested in participating in the development of a “Sentiment Analysis And Social Media Monitoring Solution”.  In other words, the Federal Reserve wants to develop a highly sophisticated system that will gather everything that you and I say about the Federal Reserve on the Internet and that will analyze what our feelings about the Fed are.  Obviously, any “positive” feelings about the Fed would not be a problem.  What they really want to do is to gather information on everyone that views the Federal Reserve negatively.  It is unclear how they plan to use this information once they have it, but considering how many alternative media sources have been shut down lately, this is obviously a very troubling sign.

You can read this “Request for Proposal” right here.  Posted below are some of the key quotes from the document (in bold) with some of my own commentary in between the quotes….

“The intent is to establish a fair and equitable partnership with a market leader who will who gather data from various social media outlets and news sources and provide applicable reporting to FRBNY. This Request for Proposal (“RFP”) was created in an effort to support FRBNY’s Social Media Listening Platforms initiative.”

A system like this is not cheap.  Apparently the Federal Reserve Bank of New York believes that gathering all of this information is very important.  In recent years, criticism of the Federal Reserve has become very intense, and most of this criticism has been coming from the Internet.  It has gotten to the point where the Federal Reserve Bank of New York has decided that it had better listen to what is being said and find out who is saying it.

“Social media listening platforms are solutions that gather data from various social media outlets and news sources.  They monitor billions of conversations and generate text analytics based on predefined criteria.  They can also determine the sentiment of a speaker or writer with respect to some topic or document.”

The Federal Reserve Bank of New York intends to listen in on “billions of conversations” and to actually determine the “sentiment” of those that are participating in those conversations.

Of course it will be those conversations that are “negative” about the Federal Reserve that will be setting off the alarm bells.

“Identify and reach out to key bloggers and influencers”

Uh oh.  So they plan to “identify” key bloggers and influencers?

What exactly do they plan to do once they “identify” them?

“The solution must be able to gather data from the primary social media platforms –Facebook, Twitter, Blogs, Forums and YouTube.”

Hopefully you understand this already, but nothing posted on the Internet is ever anonymous.  Everything on the Internet is gathered by a vast host of organizations and is used for a wide variety of purposes.  Data mining has become a billion dollar industry, and it is only going to keep growing.

You may think that you are “anonymous” when you criticize organizations like the Fed, but the truth is that if you are loud enough they will see it and they will make a record of it.

“The solution must provide real-time monitoring of relevant conversations.  It should provide sentiment analysis (positive, negative or neutral) around key conversational topics.”

Why do they need to perform “sentiment analysis”?

If someone is identified as being overly “negative” about the Fed, what will they do about it?

“The solution should provide an alerting mechanism that automatically sends out reports or notifications based a predefined trigger.”

This sounds very much like the kind of “keyword” intelligence gathering systems that are currently in use by major governments around the globe.

Very, very creepy stuff.

Are you disturbed yet?

For those of us that write about the Federal Reserve a lot, this is very sobering news.

I wonder what the Fed will think about the following articles that I have posted on this site….

*Unelected, Unaccountable, Unrepentant: The Federal Reserve Is Using Your Money To Bail Out European Commercial Banks Once Again

*Celebrating Independence Yet Enslaved To Debt

*19 Reasons Why The Federal Reserve Is At The Heart Of Our Economic Problems

*Is Ben Bernanke A Liar, A Lunatic Or Is He Just Completely And Totally Incompetent?

*10 Things That Would Be Different If The Federal Reserve Had Never Been Created

What is their “Social Media Monitoring Solution” going to think about those articles?

Unfortunately, this is all part of a very disturbing trend.

Recently, a very creepy website known as “Attack Watch” was launched to gather information on those saying “negative” things about Barack Obama.

Suddenly, everyone seems obsessed with what you and I are saying.

This just shows how the power of the alternative media is growing.

Not only that, but it seems as though the government also wants to gather as much information on all of us as possible.

For example, a new rule is being proposed by the Department of Health and Human Services that would force health insurance companies to submit detailed health care information about all of their customers to the federal government.

Every single day our privacy is being stripped away a little bit more.

But now it is often not just enough for them to know what we are doing and saying.  Instead, the “authorities” are increasingly stepping in to silence important voices.

One of the most recent examples of this was when Activistpost was taken down by Google.  We are still awaiting word on why this was done.

Sadly, the silencing of Activistpost is far from an isolated incident.

Hordes of YouTube accounts have been shut down for their political viewpoints.

Quite a few very prominent alternative media websites have been censored or attacked because of what they stand for.

So why is this happening?  Well, it turns out that the power of the alternative media is growing.  According to a new survey by the Pew Research Center for The People & The Press, 43 percent of Americans say that they get their news on national and international issues from the Internet.  Back in 1999, that figure was sitting at just 6 percent.

The American people are sick and tired of getting “canned news”, and they are increasingly turning to the Internet in a search for the truth.

As I have written about previously, the mainstream media in this country is overwhelmingly dominated by just 6 very powerful corporations….

Today, ownership of the news media has been concentrated in the hands of just six incredibly powerful media corporations.  These corporate behemoths control most of what we watch, hear and read every single day.  They own television networks, cable channels, movie studios, newspapers, magazines, publishing houses, music labels and even many of our favorite websites. Sadly, most Americans don’t even stop to think about who is feeding them the endless hours of news and entertainment that they constantly ingest.  Most Americans don’t really seem to care about who owns the media.  But they should.  The truth is that each of us is deeply influenced by the messages that are constantly being pounded into our heads by the mainstream media.  The average American watches 153 hours of television a month.  In fact, most Americans begin to feel physically uncomfortable if they go too long without watching or listening to something.  Sadly, most Americans have become absolutely addicted to news and entertainment and the ownership of all that news and entertainment that we crave is being concentrated in fewer and fewer hands each year.

The “news” that we get from various mainstream sources seems to always be so similar.  It is as if nearly all mainstream news organizations are reading from the same script.  The American people know that they are not getting the whole truth and they have been increasingly looking to alternative sources.

The monopoly over the news that the mainstream media once possessed has been broken.  The alternative media is now creating some huge problems for organizations that were once very closely protected by the mainstream media.

The American people are starting to wake up and they are starting to get very upset about a lot of the corruption that has been going on in our society.

But it turns out that the “authorities” don’t like it too much when Americans try to actually exercise free speech in America today.  For example, you can see recent video of female protesters in New York City being penned in by police and then brutally maced right here.

Are you sickened by that?

You should be.

What the “authorities” want is for us to shut up, sit in our homes and act as if nothing wrong is happening.

Meanwhile, they seem determined to watch us more closely than ever.

So are you going to be afraid to talk negatively about the Federal Reserve now that you know that they are going to be watching what you say on the Internet?

Please feel free to leave a comment with your thoughts below….

  • Too Many Fat Asses In The USA

    I sure hope they’re watching me. Then they’ll know I want them abolished.

    Unfortunately, my gym insists on playing Ministry of Propaganda TV in the locker room. Couple weeks ago, the MOP was broadcasting Obama speaking in echo over a PA system at some event. Hearing this echo coming from two different televisions in the locker room sounded eerily like one of those speeches Hitler would have given, tho in English. just sayin’…

  • Mainuh1

    So the FED is going to be trolling blogs. Must have a lot of time on their hands, out of economic ammo, firing blanks. Mr. Bernanke you REALLY don’t want to know what main street thinks of you. You and your cronies rob the middle and lower classes so your bankster/investment friends can invest money borrowed at 0% while not giving out loans to main street. Do you think we are stupid? We’ve been watching you and your cronies bailing out your rich friends at our expense. It won’t be long before TSHTF and we will remember your actions and judge you accordingly.

  • Tatiana Covington

    Hey Fed, suck on it.

  • HerrLT

    The Bernank and the Fascist Police State known as the USSA can suck a wet noodle. Methinks Ron Paul, Bob Chapman, Max Keiser, John Williams, Gonzalo Lira, Peter Schiff, Porter Stansberry, the Tyler Durdens, and of course The Economic Collapse Blog are all honorary members on this monitoring list. Oh yeah – for the algos tracking us: END THE FED.

  • Kevin2

    They must be getting ready to hire a hell of a lot of people to watch a hell of a lot of people. Anyone know where someone can get an employment application?

    I won’t be afraid of it. I’ve talked so much about it they probably have my name on a list with twenty asterisks by it, or more.

  • The Cabal Has Destroyed Our Buying Power

    They have indicted themselves with both words and deeds, and they will be judged harshly by those who look back on this debacle with the passage of time. They will say we tip-toed through the TULIPS while reading JOHN LAW’S RULES OF CENTRAL BANKING/FIAT CURRENCY FOR IDIOTS. So it’s come to policies used by our former Cold War Enemies on thier own citizens, and our Allies called it having the authoritarian boot on the neck of said helpless citizens. I love the smell of desperation and fear in the morning, and this is pungent with both.

    The system of identifying key bloggers is not to simply gather information.

    From my own experience, If you write a blog critical of something and it get traction, you can expect some companies/governments (and presumably the Fed) to subvert your comments by either writing blogs “using your ID” to twist the message around, blatantly falsify your words and so on.

    My old boss employed someone to search for critical comments about him (or the company) and would brag about how he would “destroy them”. He even had porn “planted” on computers, so that if he fired someone, he had a ready made excuse. In the end he was bragging about sending emails under my name to my colleagues who were to gutless to react as they worried they would be next.

    I did contract work for US companies. To keep those companies happy, my old boss would cut and paste from various reports to look like we did a lot of work (sometimes using results from previous contracts with competitors) and would send those off under my name. I would get the “shut up because your name’s on it” routine.

    I worked at an analytical lab (as Group Manager) and regularly had the CEO telling me “what would be passed” – even contaminated food/wine for export. When I left, I heard that I was accused of not having the “industry’s interests at heart”, making “unauthorised comments to foreign embassies”, “trying to destroy the wine industry” and “failing to act as directed” when the CEO blasted me saying “where in your job contract does it say you have to act legally!”

    This is all in Australia. Where do you think Murdoch and the News empire started!!

  • JD

    All I can say is that if the Federal Reserve is reading this “You can go to HELL, HELL, HELL!” Ive been overloading myself today with conspiracy theories and Ive come to the conculsion that between controling our minds with lithium in bottled water to HAARP and setting up concentration camps in this country ive had just about enough of Big Sis. What are they so afraid of? That enough of us will pull our heads out of the sand and our asses that we will not go quietly into the night? Im proud of the Wall St. protesters. I hope that this will be a continuing trend. I hope this is still a free country that we can say whatever we want without fear of FBI agents or the thought police knocking down our doors and putting us on railroad cars to the next concentration camp. “Did we say Death Camps? Oh, we meant Happy Camps!” As long as we’re not instagating violence what is the govt.’s problem with our free thoughts? All I know that this is not the country that my Father and my Grandfathers fought for. America is turning into a brutal police state before our eyes. I sat in jail for 3 months this summer sitting off fines. I still have nightmares that im back in there again. I usually wake up and realize that im in the guest house and all is good. Being locked up for political reasons seems like the worst reason. Instead of being in there for a violent crime or theft you are locked up for your beliefs. Trust me, being in jail is one of the most humiliating experiences you can go through. They try to break your mind and spirit. Dont ever stop Michael. Keep telling us what a lying piece of crap the Fed Reserve is. I just hope that something bad dosent happen to you and the rest of us that dare to speak out. I will pray for you always my friend.

    • Michael

      I very much appreciate your prayers JD.

      My wife and I will be praying for you as well.

    “How they plan on using this information is not clear.” Ummm… They’ll probably use it the very same way the last dozen or more Gastapo oriented establishments used it; To find out who & where people are that are talking about them in a negative light and …shhhh!! ….. make them disappear….Shhh…. This is all nothing new. History repeats itself. We just think this is all new because we forget our history. History is supposed to teach us to recognize something that has happened before, so that we know what to do when we see it again. But since Germany was defeated, but the Gastapo just moved to the U.S. and took up shop here, they were never really defeated. All they needed to do was put in a change of address card and they’ve been back in business since 1948. Same Smell, Different Nostril. But fascist trash always smell the same, regardless of the era. Get ready boys & girls. It’s happening again. You didn’t learn your lesson well enough now it’s time for another helping of GastapoLand, the Movie. Please don’t talk for the duration of the film. We wouldn’t want to offend anyone, would we? Pansies…

  • mondobeyondo

    Oh gosh. Time was, I only had to be afraid of the FBI, CIA and the police. Now I have to be concerned about the FEDERAL RESERVE?!? Not to worry, I won’t keep talking or commenting about the Fed, even if Bernanke sends in the SWAT team to silence me.

    Now I’m getting nervous. I suppose I’d better keep an eye out for the Girl Scouts now as well. Who knows what info they may be gathering on me when I purchase some Thin Mints and Do-Si-Do’s. I bought 3 boxes of Trefoils this past March – that could make me a terrorist!! *GASP!*

    Oh, and in case you’re wondering why there’s been almost NO coverage of the Wall Street protesters in American print and broadcast media, it’s because most of the corporate main stream media are owned by Wall Street. Wouldn’t be in their best interest of reporting or broadcasting protests at Wall Street against corporate America, when you are owned, bought and sold by corporate America… y’know? You’d be cutting your own throat. Hence, the “hush-hush” policy of the American MSM. You can find plenty about it online on foreign media though.

    Oh yeah, but there’s pleeeeennty of news here in the U.S. about some dead satellite that plunged to Earth on Friday. That made quite a headline splash. (pun intended)

    I was waiting for some piece to fall on a mountain top outside Tucson or something. Maybe that would have been real news worth reporting.

  • Old Man

    My dear Federal Reserve,

    I love you. So very much! Kiss kiss kiss! You are my idol, my dream, my savior. You are the best invention ever. Better than the Constitution. You are more important than Congress. You are the blood and soul of America. Your Notes control the whole world – friends and enemies fear you. Oh yes, you are doing God’s work!!

    PS: Now get those freaking agents and cameras off my back.

      LOL that one made me laugh.


  • CitznKate

    The Fed isn’t satisfied with controlling the country through controlling the currency, apparently. Now they want to hire someone to help them try to control how we feel about being controlled. Goodness me, if I post negative things about the Federal Reserve on the Internet will there one day come a group of armed thugs to kick in my door, announce that the Ministry of Information has invited me to assist it in certain inquiries, handcuff me, pop a sack over my head, and take me away in a black mariah? I’m getting shades of Brazil, here.

  • JD

    Thank God we all have camera phones. The MSM is too busy with the freakin Reno air crash and the Real Housewife that got beat and Michael Jackson’s doctor to show us the real news. Those protesters were not doing anything but practicing free speech and right to protest. Those cops were acting like animals. They are a bunch of bullies taking on collage kids and young people that are just speaking out against corporate greed. I had no idea it was that bad. But according to Morning Express with Robin Meade you would think the top story of the day is some missing woman or how third graders are eating healthier. This needs to get out. Just remember, your silence gives your consent. The black booted thugs with badges are getting worse and worse. They killed a man in my old town by tazing him to death. And this is in little ol’ Montana. We have to stand up to these goons and as long as we got the cameras on them, we can show the whole country what they are. A bunch of cowards.

    A wonderful summary of yet one more outrage from the R&Rs (Rothschilds, Rockefellers, and their allies and servants).

    The remarkable thing to me is how they have used 9/11 to enslave, kill, and impoverish us. Will this descent into a police state ever stop? It won’t–unless the 99.9% of us remember our humanity, forget our incomparably trivial differences, and fight the bankers back. Moreover, we must use their tactics, including bribery, targeting of powerful individuals, clandestine activities, and brilliant strategizing. Absent this, in a few years we’d all be living in 1984. So get together with 1-2 people you can wholly trust, and start planning the oncoming leaderless revolution.

    Click on the “Infocyde Twitter DB Profile” link on the top, there are lots of nice charts and graphs. I’ve pondered doing a little data gathering on the folks behind this effort and posting it somewhere, maybe with charts and graphs as well. But I’m probably too lazy.

  • Just about everything I’ve written for the past 4 years fits that description. Throughout the history of private banks, they have subverted governments and media outlets into complicity with fraud, racketeering, extortion and war, In the past, they haven’t particularly cared what anyone said or thought. If sentiment turned against them, rhry just instigated a new war.

    Michael-I get WAY more news from internet sites such as yours. I can get more accurate news about whats happening in this country from Al Jazerra, RT America, BBC etc than I can on the *********** news stations here in the USA. It is sickening that so few own so much of the media but that is what the conservatives gave us with all the deregulation/fairness doctrine repeal. Look at the wealth and income inequality and see all the bad things this inequality causes besides media ownership. I think the media needs to be broken up every bit as much as the banks.

    Yo, Keynesian Ben and the rest of you Federal Reserve buffoons. As you go along your merry, money printing way, destroying my country in the process, I’ve got a bit of “sentiment” I’d like to share with you and your watch dogs.

  • Lennie Pike

    Hey thug satanic gangsters at the Fed – is this negative enough to be reported back to you?:

    Why don’t you put a little more thought into your choices of the operatives that steal and lie for you, and choose people who are a little more palatable and credible with the General Public?

    I am specifically referring to Hank Paulson and Little Timothy (the worm) Geithner although there are others. It is so blatantly obvious that these two are advanced and accomplished bull shit artists and thug criminals that they have lost all credibility. You probably just thought – so what? – we have already dumbed down the Public so much that they won’t and can’t do anything about it. Think again – ever heard of Ron Paul? Know what his true position in the Presidential race is? Are you going to kill him, excuse me, have him killed like you did JFK?

    Back to my point, Geithner and Paulson have the personality traits of those who are devoid of any scruples or character and of those who reach the deepest levels of spiritual darkness – “and oh how deep that darkness can be.” You must be very proud of them both and all that they have done for you and against humanity.

    I couldn’t care less if you send someone to my house – I’m sure it won’t be you – you stay hidden safely in the shadows like vampires. If you were the stars of some horror movie, I’d believe it.

    Check my previous posts for more – there are few who are more critical. I love my fellow man and know what you do to make them suffer, and I know that there are very few who realize what you do and who you are – so there will be negative posts – people need to be educated so that you will be kicked out of the U.S. and back to where ever it is the hell you came from. It appears though that the Public is becoming more aware of you – so that’s good.

    Your scam is unconstitutional therefore is illegal, but breaking that law is absolutely nothing compared to the evil you carry out with the power you derive from breaking it.

    Americans and the World need to be made aware of who you are and the intentional suffering and destruction that you are directly responsible for so that they will refuse to accept your satanic New World Order which will totally enslave the world.

    People will be enslaved because you will continue to keep the truth from them, and demand through force that they deny the truth – BUT!!!!!!!! “They will eventually know The Truth and the Truth will set them free.”

    You will probably never change – but with God, “all things are possible”.

    Life can be wonderful you idiots.

  • My whole life I knew this was coming. Ever since I was 13 years old I have been a voice of dissent. I wasn’t afraid then and I’m not afraid now. This article has galvanized me and I will continue to keep the faith and post on my blog. I’ll never stop speaking out until I am dead. I’ve already sullied my reputation. Anyone who sees my work will immediately know that I am not a mindless drone. All someone has to do is Google my name to find my writing. I am not a radical I merely speak the truth. In a world ran by plutocrats I suppose that is enough to become a target.

  • Mark

    It seems that every four year term that a president finishes we loose more freedom. Many of the people in power are taking us towards a police state. I sure hope that this great experiment that our founding fathers started does not end up in the dust bin of history. It seems that the darkness is closing in on the world. Let us all pray to our God for more light. Let the light shine on these hucksters and maybe people will see then for what they are and learn to not allow their freedom to be bought with fake wealth.

  • What makes ya think that they don’t have access to this information already? This just shows me that the Fed is getting scared. They are learning that we know we are better off without them. They are now afraid that people are waking up. And the best part… They should be!

    Oh yes Bernanke, I do love it when you lie to me on TV. I get very excited when you lie to me in your economic forecasts. I for one appreciate the talent it takes to lie so blatantly with a straight face. Inflation, what inflation? Right Bennie. Wink, wink.

    While others claim you are a bone headed idiot that does not have a clue how you are destroying the economy. I find your actions quite entertaining and always good for gold prices. And no matter what anyone says I don’t think you are a money printing, pin headed, panty waist.

    Keep up the good work. Keep Lying to me Ben and print us ou another trillion. Why not another trillion for Greece. It makes me darn proud of my country. What would we do without you.

  • 007

    Oh Ben, you know all those posts I made about you and the beast, uhm i mean the FED were made as a jest. Glad to see you can take a joke. Hoverer, some posters (Gary 2) are overly critical of the FED in my opinion. all he can talk about is how he hates the FED and wants to tax you personally HARD. Seems an investigation is warranted.

  • After this monitoring is in place, new laws will be invented regarding speech that is deemed harmful to national security or whatever, and then we will see some very high profile arrests. These will be designed to scare the population into silence. Worked like a charm in the Nazi rise to power. History shows us this same playbook followed time and time again. Only problem is for every 20 people I try to talk to, I usually only find maybe 2 who are awake,and then maybe 1 who would be willing to take some kind of action. What a huge population of docile, submissive, dumb-down sheep. What to do?

    Only a fool hopes to get any sort of important information from the mainstream media in these troubled times but I’m sure there are some people who choose to keep their head in the sand and watch this stuff like it’s important while ignoring the events that show the decline of everything all over the world.
    I thank that guys like you exist mike that tell the news like it is without any sugarcoating and this might be the sadist in me talking but for once I would love for the mainstream media to have somebody stand up while their live and before they can cut off start destroying the happy image they have going on.

  • Martin

    As someone who is not an American and don’t live in the US either, I care little about what Federal Reserve might think about my posts.

    However I do believe that Federal Reserve and its policy is one of few major factors which will bring United States down.

    One way or another within several years their policy will destroy a dollar and later they will become to be irrelevant by the same.

    United States will become to be some sort of Third World nation armed with atomic weapons and ruled by corrupt entities.
    Something like Pakistan perhaps.
    This transformation is proceeding as we speak.
    After few more years or decades of such sad state of affairs country will simply dissipate and cease to exist together with its bankrupt banking sector.
    All that will fall into ruins very much like many empires of the past (including Soviets) did.

    So there is nothing to whine about.
    Federal Reserve is not in position to alter its trajectory to an ultimate ruin.
    Window of opportunity to do so have expired with Alan Greenspan appointment and this was quite a while ago.

    I think it is unfortunate that the Fed has stooped to intimidation tactics. They are going to find out that the people are really starting to wake up. There is a great video on my blog about the way the economy works from Mike Maloney. I urge you to see that video so that you will understand why the Fed are so nervous. God bless you all.

  • Pat

    In case it did not print, Here is the video about how the economy works:

    The bankers are literally willing to maintain their power with all means necessary.

          I gotta edit out some of the language there.

          And I didn’t think you believed in “karma” anyway. 🙂


          • A.S.

            what’s wrong with the word “***************************?”

            also, most readers will not understand the term “middot knegged middot” from the Hebrew: deed for deed.” So I used “karma” since this the closest that most people can associate with. Essentially, Divine Retribution will *********************** the Federal Reserve…it is just a matter of time.

  • ‘interesting to know, now that I’ve just posted an “Abolish the Fed” petition on the White House website! They say they will “consider” any petition receiving 5,000 signatures in 30 days – abolish the TSA has more than 15,000.
    For those who would like to sign the petition there, the address is
    (Unsure if the petition address would show here, I also posted it as my website below.)

    • Clark Kent

      A petition is a perfect way to get all dissident data, fully confirmed by their own pens. Like a sign up sheet for FEMA Roundups. And totally useless. A psychopathic dictator like the Fed is going to care about 1 mill signatures? or 100 million? LOLOL

      Withhold your credit card payments for 90 days until some indictments ensue. THAT will get their attention. Nothing else.

      We keep hoping the low-risk, no-pain method of passive squeals will win us freedom. Dont happen that way.

    • Analogous Nyme

      So rather than a government of the people, by the people etc, we get a corner of the internet where, if 5,000 people show that they want something, the government will “consider” it. Like when the king would spend a day ruling in petty court. Wonderful. makes me feel all warm and fuzzy about my congressmen and senators.

    • Bastiat

      I registered on but it will not let me sign the petition. It’s stuck at 4995 signers, just 5 shy of the needed 5000. What the heck

      • Bastiat

        Ha ha, got that backwards. Only 5 so far, 4995 to go.


    I think they are watching us because they know. We
    are watching them and they can’t stand it. 25 years
    ago the people had to get there news and facts from the MSM now we have a new way and they cant control every thing we see.. So they are trying to find out what we think about it all.. and they don’t like what they see..they are loosing control and in doing so they are going to keep adding ways to try to get control back. And every thing they add is one more thing we have lost (our right’s) now they are working on free speech. What will be next out right to VOTE THINK ABOUT IT ….If they take it they can do anything they want and we will not be able to do anything… All I can say is I will go down in a blaze of glory. I will fight to the end for me and mine I have worked hard to get what I’ve got and i will not stand back and just let it all go..STAND UP PEOPLE AS ONE WE ARE WEAK AS MANY WE ARE VERY STRONG!!!!!And that is what they are afraid of…..

    • Clark Kent

      Got news. They know what we think and dont care. Its what we might DO that gives ’em twitches. Not to worry, we wont do much except some begging & whining- letters to their agents in Congress, bitchin on blogs. No threat.

      • GuyFawkes

        Speak for yourself when you say “we”. I, on the other hand, am very active in planning and participating in larger and larger rallies in my city. I have signs on my lawn. I walk from business to business in my neighborhood sharing with them the reason to move their money out of the big banks.

        I hope that “you” will decide to stop begging, whining and bitching on blogs and take it to the streets.

        “They” will only listen to us if we are enmasse and screaming on the streets.

    • Zedge Hero

      I couldn’t agree with you more, it’s that fact that we are starting to think for ourselves and search out the truth that scares them. I have had friends and family members ask me if I am afraid for having my own news broadcast on YouTube. It is soley on how there is a World Revolution out there against the United Banking Cartel and the immense debt enslavment that is occuring. I say hell no. They say that I might be on some list and I say, if my name is on that list at least our relatives in the future will know that one of us had the guts to stand up for what is right. Don’t you think Jefferson, Franklin, Washington and down the lineage to Jackson where afraid of the money changers in the “City of London” and the powers that be. They knew they could face certain death by standing up to England and their evil banking industry. But they did so cause it was right. The revolution was about this issue. History can not be changed. It was not about taxation without representation. Don’t believe me listen to Benjamin Franklin here…..

      “The colonies would gladly have borne the little tax on tea and other matters had it not been that England took away from the colonies their money, which created unemployment and dissatisfaction. The inability of the colonists to get power to issue their own money permanently out of the hands of George III and the international bankers was the PRIME reason for the Revolutionary War.” -Benjamin Franklin’s Auto biography

      This goes back to Jesus- For all the devout Chrsitian followers here on this website, I think Money is the only thing I can remember that made Jesus really upset. Right?

      For a long time the Jews had been called upon to pay their temple tax with a special coin called the half shekelshekel. It was a measured half ounce of pure silver with no image of a pagan emperor on it.
      Back in Jesus time there was only a limited number of these coins in circulation, the money changers were in a buyers market and like with anything else in short supply, they were able to raise the price to what the market would bear.

      They made huge profits with their monopoly on these coins and turned this time of devotion into a mockery for profit. Jesus saw this as stealing from his people and proclaimed the whole setup to be. “A den of thieves”.
      Then he went ballastic on them. Even Jesus got furious with the money changers. He was more upset at them, then those that crucified him.

      Or as my News Motto goes

      It’s the United Banking Cartel versus us, not me versus you, for we are the many, and they are the few.

      Federal Reserve Audit

      Federal Reserve Additonal Loans

      Your not the only one they are watching Michael.

      “History records that the money changers have used every form of abuse, intrigue, deceit, and violent means possible to maintain their control over governments by controlling money and its issuance.”
      President James Madison

      I do the news every Friday so that it is documented, we will write the History this time and this time everyone will have access. For it’s the likes of Zero Hedge and Economic Collapse Blog that inspired not only me, but countless others to fight for what is right.

  • veemac

    we have to learn how to get together and protect ourselves and our country from these people who want to own and control everything. this is just a game for them. they don’t care about us. they distract us with crap that is not important. they lie cheats and steal from us. they want us dead. we have to act first. they should of been gotten rid of a long time ago.

  • Sounds to me like they are very frightened!


  • TD

    I find it laughable that the Feds or any group that attempts to control us think they can continue operating in the same manner forever.

    (1) The super-wealthy can’t milk us out of our money forever. After all, they use our sweat to survive. They need us to clean their homes, build their industries, create their technologies, and so forth. Their behavior is causing the very system they’re feeding off of to crumble. I consider the power hungry feds VERY STUPID, because they just don’t see that they’re digging their own graves—though they’re throwing quite a few of us in the grave with them.

    (2) The more control a government and any group of people exert, the more spectacular their downfall will be. Read the history of empires. Look at the consequences of revolutions. Here’s the mechanism: Currently, not enough people know friends, family, and colleagues who have been silenced by the gov’t. The more control a gov’t exerts and the more silencing, the greater the numbers of citizens affected, which in turn means just about everybody will know somebody in their family, among their colleagues, or in their neighborhood who has suffered. The problem becomes “personal.” Since people react based on emotion not rationality, a “personal” problem will anger them to no end.

    In the meantime, the decline will be slow and agonizing to all of us, and the final extinction of the Feds may not come in our lifetime. We want instant solutions. We want to reverse the course. We want to make people instantly aware of the looming danger. But raising awareness is tough when this very same system we’re fighting is keeping just about everyone of us too ignorant and obedient through education, too entertained through the media, too busy making a living, too busy shielding ourselves from crap being flung at us in our everyday lives, be it a phone charge, credit card APR that’s too high, an IRS mistake, dealing with an insurance company, and so on.

    Having lived in a war-zone, I’ve learned that the when a political entity, a militia, or any type of controlling entity scrambles to exert further control, it is a sign of massive failure within that entity, and its self-destruction is imminent. So I say to the Feds, “Go for it! Exert your power and try to silence us, as each step you take is one shovel of dirt you’re clearing until you put yourselves 6 feet under.”

  • My comfort is in knowing that there is a higher court than any institution of man. At the present time, the rich men of the earth have space to repent. They are in the position of the Rich Young Ruler. They could sell all that they have and give to the poor. Will they? It’s difficult foe people accustomed to unlimited wealth and power to give up their ill gotten gains. They are like drug pushers who shoot, snort and smoke up their profits. They suffer ftom the same addiction that they inflicted on their customers. We’re watching them front each other their next fix. I feel a blog coming on. There’s a lot of history, that hasn’t been written, yet.

    We really need to be aware of the depth of the evil that afflicts us. We have inherited lies from our fathers.

  • addict

    Hi, my name’s Addict, and I have an addiction. As mentioned in the blue box above, I’ve become addicted to news. My addiction is not sad, the news is. My news sources (dealers) are, in no particular order: Economic Collapse, ZeroHedge, SHTF Plan, SurvivalBlog, Kitco, and Drudge. I’m continually on these sites. I “feel physically uncomfortable if they (I) go too long without watching or listening to something” on one of these sites. Because of my addiction I’ve developed a disdain for both of the major political parties, and a genuine concern for the survival of the Republic. As a responsible husband, father, and neighbor I’m doing what I can to provide for the well being and safety of my family and encouraging my neighbors to do the same. I predict that just like texting has led to a new vocabulary (lmao) so will the monitoring by Big Brother. We’ll abbr. and alter the spel ling to screww up the data miners. Develop multiple user idez and use different sites to contribute information. If 3rd worlders can use the internet for the Arab Spring, First Worlders can as well. They have led the way, so we’ll use their experiences to shorten the learning curve and keep ahead of the monitors.
    NOTE TO Michael: The article mentions sites being shut down. Perhaps what Rawles at SurvivalBlog has done will help you and your fans:

    Thanks for what you do.

      Ops,but there is other called “endoftheamericandream” than might be interesting for you too!

      Arab Spring was successful because it was organized and pushed by THE BANKERS to use dissident rage for their own ends- to overthrow govts they wanted to get rid of. You dont see Saudi, Kuwait, Bahrain, Morrocco or Jordan Arab Springing now do you? Ask why.

      Arab Spring is as much about freedom as TARP is about solvency. A joke.

    To echo the sentiments of several posters here, I wouldn’t waste a lot of energy worrying about this, or any other federally-funded snooping program. The fact is that these assclowns can “monitor” whatever and whoever they want, but it doesn’t matter. The tide of public opinion is so overwhelmingly against them that once TSHTF, there’s going to be no one left to do their dirty work for them.

    Oh, and to echo another sentiment expressed by several posters here:

    Hey, Bennie – BITE ME!

  • knightowl77

    Another great article! It amazes me just how clueless the majority of Americans are. Many intelligent people refuse to talk “politics” and anything that might shake their world seems to fall into the “politics” realm. Sad….

    In fact soooooo many people doubt the warnings, that it continually makes me re-evaluate what is going on. Are they stupid/ignorant or am I a paranoid delusional nut? I have always thought that I was logical and rational, almost to a fault, but the ignorance of the majority of people shakes me to the core. I often think this must be a really long, bad dream and that it is time to wake up.

    It looks like it is time to vote for Ron Paul or anyone who will stop this Merry Go Round…

    • jboogy

      Knightowl, I couldn’t have said it better myself. What else blows my mind is that friends and family tell me flat out that they don’t want to hear it because there’s nothing they can do and they have enough to worry about already! I do not understand this response at all. They will someday show up on my almost- paid-for, hobby-farm doorstep looking for something to eat, and I will feed them while attempting to resist shouting ” I TOLD YOU SO”, into their faces.

      On the bright side I have been running into more and more people who nod their heads in agreement or are even knowledgable about current economics when I lob the, ” things are getting bad ” gambit at them .

  • Brian

    Liberty is definitely under assault! Unfortunately, it’s going to get worse… This is just another sign of that global (i.e., government and economic) system that must be in place. It will eventually get so bad “…that no man might buy or sell, save he that had the mark, or the name of the beast, or the number of his name.”

  • McKinley Morganfield

    If this is accurate info Bernanke’s band of jolly robbers have taken on more than they can handle. There are millions of people from all over the political spectrum who are deeply dissatisfied with the bailouts of the ‘too big to fail’ and who have little or no faith in the political process. What can they do? Shut down the web? That will back fired very quickly!

    So if this is accurate info I see it is a sign of their fear. When government fears the righteous wrath of the people freedom prospers. Keep exercising your rights.

Well, ever have a full, updated redundant backup and place in a secure location because when the beasts do attack, they will confiscate everything!! If an online mirror with server located in other continent can be afforded, it will also give some additional insurance.

  • Toomanyfakeconservatives

    First they came for the key bloggers, but I was not a minor-league blogger, so I did not speak up.

  • Well, there’s not enough room at the FEMA camps for everyone, so they have to prioritize who will be rounded up.

    I’m sure they are paying close attention to the people who are following and promoting Ron Paul, Alex Jones, etc…

    Heck, if you click ‘Like’ on the Ron Paul page on Facebook, you’re probably on their list.

    Silver is down 25%, thanks to their margin hikes. Better stock up before it’s too late.

    • 007

      I can’t believe these margin increases. They did it to gold and silver. And they raise them 25% in one day. On top of that, it is he fifth margin increase this year. Even worse, they wait until it is falling in price to try to drive the price down further.

      Oh well,what a great buying opportunity.

      • Hey 007, it’s been crazy watching the effect of the margin increase. They are doing everything they can to keep gold and silver down, and to scare people away from buying physical bullion.

        As you said, it’s a great buying opportunity. Perhaps the last one before the economy collapses and gold and silver skyrocket.

        For people that want to learn about using precious metals to protect their money, here’s a video from Mike Maloney of GoldSilver.

  • Between the OBummer camp collecting names of people who oppose his political moves… and the Feds collecting people who oppose their financial moves…

    You would hope those lists would include everyone in the U.S.

    Sadly, most people don’t have a clue as to the truth, and they don’t care to find out.

    I preach financial education so that people can protect their money, and most people just don’t get why the economy will soon collapse… and why they need to get out of paper assets.

    I expect them to find ways to screw-up the web sites, by using various forms of software. We live in a sick world. The FED is a sick operation. If they are reading this…You can go to hell!!!!

  • To be perfectly frank, I am not surprised at all about this move. why? well, I studied computational linguistics in germany and sentiment analysis is a very scary (at least for people who can think), yet powerful tool, that is commonly used to spy on people.

    what I find surprising is, that they come out into the open about it.

    anyhow, this stuff is ment for nightmarish big brother systems and, at least in my eyes, is ment as the last stage before they will take us to the camps…..

When the reckoning comes, no place in the world will be safe for you – just like you planned for us.

  • There’s a lot of talking going on about the economy, the Fed, etc… but not enough people are taking action to prepare for the coming economic collapse.

    We are already screwed. Why do we have to add these fake lies into the mix? I have been waiting for an answer to my question. I can’t pass on bogus info. Someone help me. Is this a real story or nor? Author, stand by your story. Where’s the real link? I’m waiting here.

    • Leo Uffington

      I agree. As I said below, the document at the link provided looks a bit dodgy. We cannot go around spouting sourceless material, otherwise we are exactly the same as the people we are against. We cannot afford to look like fools if we are challenging organizations at this level. We have to be the ones with 100% integrity. And I don’t see it here.

  • natali

    Well, I can’t wait anymore. E-mail me at *********************************, if you actually have some real info. I call bogus.

    But, my only question is why do you put this out, with no real back up? We are surrounded by lies; why make it worse? Who do you work for? Kashkari.

    I guess we’ll all be seeing each other at FEMA camps then?

    The Sheeple are still clueless on most matters surrounding the current dire status of the world, but there’s no doubt more people have waken up in the last year from alternative media. It still has a ways to go, but the Fed (and other private, international banking cartels) realize the importance of nipping it at the bud. Hence, they are promoting this so when it hits the fan, alternative forms of media will already be suppressed to a manageable degree.

    Hey Fed, it’s a bitch with the internet, isn’t it?

    This site will eventually get taken down in the next year or two. It is the main site to display when searching “economic collapse” on all search engines. For alternative media to pop up first, this surprised and pleased me. I guarantee a lot of “interesting” characters read this blog to see how smart we are getting. They are concerned and will shut you down eventually, Michael. The web traffic on this site is high if it is listed first on google general. I would get backup plans for servers and web registrations to reboot if something like that happens. They already have your IP address and location. It isn’t that hard to get for them. If you get suspicious on activities, I would also recommend getting one or two moderators (people or forum goers) you know well so posts can be activated if you are gone, so we can all communicate with each other. This is a powerful source and we don’t want it tampered with when the SHTF.

    I’m not kidding nor exaggerating. We will be seeing dreadful waves coming in October and another one this winter.

  • Leo Uffington

    I am against the Fed Reserve as much as anyone, and I believe there are a lot of cover-ups. And yes this was a good article… but did anyone take a close look at the RFP? I don’t know why but it doesn’t seem like a bonafide document to me. The language is simple, there are tons of spelling mistakes, the questions are repeated in different ways, check question E7… “How will the Proposed Solution measure success?” That is not the type of question a large organization planning something so huge, would ask. Most of the questions have barely anything to do with such a program.

    I’m thinking this is a fake document – please read the whole thing before you decide. Why would anyone do this? Beats me. To discredit truth movements when they can’t provide a source? I’ve seen thousands of RFPs from organizations way simpler than the FR, and they look a lot more professional than this.

  • FA

    Alright, that’s it! I’m not taking it anymore! I don’t care how crazy what’s his name is…I’m going to vote for him now and get rid of these Communists in the fed reserve. That would be Mr. Ron Paul!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Unless Sarah wakes up.

  • Analogous Nyme

    With the inception (pun intended) of the new Facebook gadgetry, especially the “Timeline”, the Fed has a ready made platform to observe and track all the information they want. Not just the statements you post, but what movies you watch, what other online topics you “like” and “dislike”, the music you listen to as well as any other details you post to Facebook or anyone on Facebook posts about you. Considering the financial interest that Goldman Sachs holds in Facebook, it should surprise no one that the men behind the curtain are looking for permission to take advantage of this global marketing research/ mass psych profiling now available to them.

    1. File on behalf of the American People, a class action lawsuit against the private Federal Reserve Bank and its’ shareholders for a total of $300 Trillion dollars for criminal acts of Fraud, Usury, Conspiracy to commit Grand Larceny and Theft by Deception by systematically looting the Treasury of The United States of America.

    For nearly 100 years,The Federal Reserve Bank has debased and debauched our currency by illegally authorizing an ODIOUS DEBT to be encumbered by our citizens without their knowledge, or in any way for their collective benefit.

    Contrary to the proper role in maintaining a sound currency, the Federal Reserve Bank along with the perverse oil cartel, has created a PETRO/DOLLAR scam, linked with an illegal DERIVATIVE PONZI SCHEME, run by the Fed and WALL STREET HEDGE FUND CRIMINALS, to defraud the American public, so as to leave them living like refugees in their own land. This ruthless cabal, now has the temerity to pass off this ODIOUS DEBT to the American people, thereby destroying not only our future, but Americas’ ability to be a free, sovereign nation.

    For these continuing acts of subversion and theft; the American People have long suffered for decades with fake wars for oil dressed up in an unending bogus war on terror; the repression of new energy patents to replace the ancient internal combustion engine which has been criminally forced to be used by the American people for 100 years to fraudulently prop up the worthless “RESERVE CURRENCY” used by this cabal to exclusively buy unneeded foreign oil in the largest cash flow charade in history.

    For this financial insult to Liberty and to the American people, the sum of $300 Trillion is demanded from the Federal Reserve Bank and their complicit shareholders.

    2.File under THE R.I.C.O. ACT, charges against any and all, past and present government officials who have conspired to enable the criminals in the Federal Reserve Bank and their co-conspirators to systematically loot the Treasury of the United States of America. Included in the lock up could be Presidents, Treasury Secretaries, Members of Congress, Generals, Admirals, Judges, and of course the Attorneys, who have cleverly crafted the language to deceive the American people out of their money and liberties.

  • GlennA

    When an institution cannot even be given a name reflective of what it actually is, or else the American people would close it right down, you know you have a problem.

    Had it been called: The Cartel of Privately Owned International Banking Interests, the people would have revolted.

    So instead, the biggest swindle ever pulled on the American people was instituted – surrendering our money creation and economy to private bankers, while duping everyone into thinking it was some kind of government body.

    And the way the politicians are always yapping about “Fed independence,” I wouldn’t be surprised if a lot of Americans actually think it is some untouchable branch specified in the Constitution.

    It is a swindle, phony and fraud right from day 1 – counterfeit in it’s very existence even before it produced it’s first counterfeit note.

    I was actually going to share this article, but can’t get answers about the content. I have a legal backgroud, and would look like an absolute fool to go passing this around. My question was quite simple: why can’t I find this so-called document on my own? And, why won’t the author speak up? Please be serious. Why the mind-screw? You call yourselves “media,” and, yet you act just like the whores we alreay have. What is the point? Step up or retract this drivel.

    • Um, sir, there is a link in the article in the second paragraph that brings one to the FRBNY Social Media RFP. — why is this so hard for you to find?

        Um, Jim, have you taken the time to LOOK at that document? LOL, it’s a joke. I was ready to pass this information along as well, but not with that kind of back-up. Just read it. If it then still isn’t obvious to you, get someone you trust, who’s smarter than you, to read it.

      Look at Fed Reserve Bank of Newyork site. It is there. Not on main Fed site. They probably did not want to publicize it.

          I had a link that took me directly to it. Found it through Google search “Federal Reserve Spying”. The FED has already confirmed the story and commented on it on CNBC. They claim it is not for evil purposes but whatever.

          • Leo Uffington

            My version of Google, when I search on your parameters, shows every article leading back to the original source, which was zerohedge. ZH points to the same suspicious looking RFP. Still no link to the FR. Can you provide evidence that they’ve confirmed the story and commented on CNBC?

        I couldn’t find it either.

  • natali

    Don’t you think we have enough trash out there already? This is a disservice. I have waited all night for an answer to my simple inquiry: where is the legitimate source for this article? Why won’t the author speak up? Maybe we need an “alternative” alternative media. You make yourselves look like fools. I’m understanding why the feds might want to monitor you, afterall.

    • boblawbla

        She did click on it and she DID read it. That’s why she is as upset as I am. The document is a joke. At first I thought it looked official but that was without reading any words. LOL.

  • I told you how HB Gary software was being used by the Air Force to infiltrate Social Media sites Here is My proof along with info from…ations-about-f

    Here is what I personally know about it. They infiltrated my Ron Paul Meet-Up site.Following please find a message which I
    think deserves immediate attention. I’ve just read this email
    — at least the first major part of it — and I suggest you
    check out Cruise Carter immediately. Or, is he someone you
    already know? I ask because you made him an assistant

    If you (or someone) can’t confirm that he’s a legit person,
    we’re considering booting him from our group, so attention is
    desired ASAP. TIA.


    P.S. I know Terry Hamel personally so I’ll check with him ASAP
    but his phone has been busy the past hour.

    P.P.S. I just found that there’s a 5000 character limit on
    messages sent via, so I am only sending you the
    first portion of this. If you need the rest please email me
    back your address.


    According to Terry Hamel from the Ron Paul meetup group this
    “person” Cruise Carter is a fake persona and is computer
    generated from government software trying to manipulate social

    Below is the message I received from Terry:

    ACTIVISM. Check your membership roster


    Check these out:…ampaigns.shtml
    WE SHOULD spread awareness of this.
    Each ID on meetup is limited to posting in three meetups per
    day. But there is no limit on the number Yahoo IDs that a
    person can have.

    This appears to be the operating procedure:

    1. Hundreds of Yahoo IDs were created, with regional
    designations. The sum of all of these Yahoo IDs covers the
    entire United States.

    2. A meetup profile was created for each Yahoo ID. Each Yahoo
    ID was used to subscribe to a different assortment of meetups.
    So far, I have not yet found one of these profiles that does
    not claim a location, that is in the same town with a military

    3. The system was launched, and tested, by posting a very
    harmless message. In most meetups this was a message promoting
    the rally in Greenville, SC on May 5. 2011, and then a Ron Paul
    money bomb. The Ron Paul campaign is investigating this.
    Campaign for liberty knows nothing about it.

    I think that we should email these “people” and ask them to
    give us a call on the phone. If we do get a call we should
    collect data including an alleged address and telephone number.


    This is a fact finding query.
    This is not the presentation of a theory, or the presentation
    of a conclusion.

    I am an organizer, or assistant organizer of a large number of
    patriot groups.
    I am subscribed to an even larger number of patriot groups.

    Lately there has been a new comer in practically every patriot
    meetup, and these new comers have a similarity in their email

    The similarity is that they all end in:
    or in

    The first part of the address is always a designation of a
    This is usually the name of a state, but is sometimes a smaller
    In general, each individual will have joined all of the patriot
    meetups in the territory designated in their email address.
    This has usually been done in the last few weeks
    (As I write today’s date is 05-04-2011)

    It looks as though they have a way to take over inactive
    profiles and change the email address. Many of the profiles are
    old, but the new email address is not found in the old posts.

  • The Satanic Psychopaths are professional pirates and thieves. Stealing your money, whether through the private issuing of your currency, or through government confiscation, is what they are good at. In response to the numerous requests for a description of how I see things playing out, I submit the following:

    1. First comes the silver and gold COMEX price suppression. In spite-of diminishing inventories in both metals, futures contracts and put options will continue to be manufactured against the markets. The goal is to keep the sheeple away from anything with real value during the plundering process. This will create a very real shortage of silver and gold as smart investors buy the metals at a deep discount.

    2. The Stock Market Crash comes first. Trillions of wealth will transfer hands as shorts against the S&P and other Indexes will continue to escalate. Insurance companies, banks, Mutual Funds, ETFs and other institutional investors will dump their holdings on command. Stock prices will go down, while Index Options capture all of the transferred wealth.

    3. Near the end of the market collapse the Federal Reserve will begin a series of interest rate hikes to trash all existing debt with a fixed interest rate. This will decimate the bond market. By the way, you can also buy Short Options against bonds and Call Options on Interest rates. More wealth transferred from the poor suckers that actually trust these people!

  • Rwolf

    The U.S. Justice Department’s—recently proposed forcing without warrants, all Electronic Communication Companies to retain permanently, user phone call records and Internet activity data. That would effectively trash the Fourth Amendment.


    U.S. Government wants the power without a warrant, to introduce as evidence in criminal prosecutions and government civil trials, any phone call record, email or Internet activity. Alarmingly, that would open the door for Police to take out of context, any innocent—hastily written email, fax or phone call record to allege a crime or violation was committed to cause a person’s arrest, fines and or civil asset forfeiture of their property. There are more than 350 laws and violations that can subject property to government asset forfeiture: Government civil asset forfeiture requires only a civil preponderance of evidence for police to forfeit property, little more than hearsay.

    If the Justice Department has its way, any information the FBI derives from (no warrant) acquisition of Web Server Records; User Internet Activity, emails; and phone records, can be used by the FBI for (fishing expeditions) to issue subpoenas in hopes of finding evidence, to prosecute Citizens for any alleged crime or violation—circumventing the Fourth Amendment. Consider: neither Congress nor the courts—determined what NSA electronic surveillance, perhaps illegal under Bush II, could be used by police or introduced into court by government to prosecute U.S. Citizens criminally or civilly. If U.S. Justice Department is permitted (No-warrant) surveillance of all electronic communications, it is problematic state and local law enforcement agencies and private government contractors will want access to prior Bush II /NSA and other government (retained electronic records) of Internet activity; emails and phone call information to secure evidence to arrest Americans and or civilly forfeit their homes, businesses and other assets under Title 18USC and other laws. Of obvious concern, what happens to fair justice in America if police become dependent on “Asset Forfeiture” to help pay their salaries and budget operating costs?

    The “Civil Asset Forfeiture Reform Act of 2000” (effectively eliminated) the “five year statue of limitations” for Government Civil Asset Forfeiture: the statute now runs five years (from the date) police allege they “learned” an asset became subject to forfeiture. It is foreseeable should (no warrant electronic surveillance) be approved; police will relentlessly sift through Citizen and businesses’ (government stored Internet data), emails and phone communications to discover alleged crimes or civil violations. A corrupt/despot U.S. Government may too easily use no-warrant- (seized emails, Internet data and phone call information) to blackmail Americans, corporations and others in the same manner Hitler utilized his earlier passed police state laws to later extort members of parliament, corporations and the wealthy to support passage of Hitler’s 1933 Discriminatory Decrees that suspended the Constitutional Freedoms of German Citizens. A Nazi Government threat of Civil Asset Forfeiture of an individual or corporation’s assets was usually sufficient to ensure Nazi support.

    Under U.S. federal civil forfeiture laws, a person or business need not be charged with a crime for government to forfeit their property. Most U.S. Citizens, property and business owners that defend their assets against Government Civil Asset Forfeiture claim an “innocent owner defense.” This defense can become a “Catch 22” a criminal prosecution trap for both guilty and innocent property owners. Any fresh denial of guilt made to government when questioned about committing a crime “even when you did not do the crime” may “involuntarily waive” a defendant’s right to assert in their defense—the “Criminal Statute of Limitations” past for prosecution; any fresh denial of guilt even 30 years after a crime was committed may allow Government prosecutors to use old and new evidence, including information discovered during a Civil Asset Forfeiture Proceeding to launch a criminal prosecution. For that reason many innocent Americans, property and business owners are reluctant to defend their property and businesses against Government Civil Asset Forfeiture.

  • Leo Uffington

    I too, like Natali, would love to pass this article around. But it’s based on one thing – a document that doesn’t look authentic at all. It doesn’t look like an RFP, it is full of spelling mistakes, it is written in a child-like way, it doesnt even ask the potential software developer to do any of the things it’s supposed to be asking. I mean, for ****’s sake, one of the questions asks whether reports can be generated. ANother asks whether those reports can be emailed to users. These are questions that would have been asked in 1982. Not today.

    The very crux of what you believe in, which is why you are here, is that you want integrity. You want to check sources. You don’t want to be fed nonsense. If all that is true, take a moment to look for yourself, look under the surface. Look at the document the author refers to, and decide for yourself if it’s authentic.

        Lol, the article on CNBC used Zerohedge as the source. The confirmation you speak of is that Zerohedge made the original announcement. It’s nowhere on the FR NY site. This has gone around in one big convoluted circle.

        Come on. This is important. The RFP is not authentic. You yourself told Michael that his article was picked up by CNBC. How does that “confirm” his story?

  • 007

    The FED thinks their little money games are so complicated the average American can’t understand it. But it’s not and the Internet is quickly educating the general public.

    For those new to the Fed it’s really pretty simple. Imagine we are all playing monopoly and the FED is the crooked banker. The FED keeps printing money and handing it out under the table to it’s friends. Meanwhile, we keep trying to play by the rules, going around the board and landing on their property with the big hotels. We may pass GO a few times and collect 200 dollars. However, the rent keeps going up a lot faster than what we can make it. It’s a big rigged game and we don’t have a chance. The average person just falls farther and farther behind the longer they play.

    This is one big reason our economy is so screwed up.

        Look at all the ones who spoke out against Big Media: Juan Williams is the latest entry in a growing list of journalists whose employment ended after trying to state their opinions quickly and plainly. They include CNN producer Octavia Nasr, for bemoaning the death of a Hezbollah cleric, CNN host Rick Sanchez for calling Jon Stewart a “bigot,” longtime White House correspondent Helen Thomas for saying that Israel should “get the hell out of Palestine.” Lou Dobbs CNN for speaking out against illegal aliens. Keith Olbermann was fired by MSNBC it had everything to do with Comcast’s acquisition of NBC

    What can Americans do to fight the New World Order?
    1. Turn off your T.V. (Better yet,throw it away)
    2. Think for yourself.
    3. Question all so-called ‘Authority’(Especially big banks,big oil,big weapons manufacturers,big government,multinational corporate interests,big media,and anything you were taught in school)!
    4. Get out,and/or stay out,of debt! (Try to not charge for things that you can just as easily pay for,with cash)
    5. Use cash as much as possible,rather than debit cards and/or credit cards,which allow companies to track what you are buying,and where you are buying.
    6. Get rid of grocery store ‘discount’cards –grocery stores provide this information to insurance companies.
    7. Bank at a Credit Union,or any alternative to the ‘Too-Big-To-Fail’Banks,that participated in the 2008 Banker Bailout. Don’t do business with ‘the Beast’.
    8. Invest as much as you reasonably can in precious metals –especially silver,and gold.
    9. You have the right to own a firearm,to protect yourself,and your family. Read the 2nd Amendment.
    10. Buy products that indicate “Made in America”–whenever possible. You’d be surprised to find out how many necessary,practical,every day products are still “Made in America”!
    11. Buy food at a local Farmer’s Market
    12. Start your own garden
    13. Meditate –reduce your stress!
    14. Get exercise!
    15. Read a book (here is an excellent book to read:Psychological Warfare and the New World Order:The Secret War Against the American People, by Servando Gonzalez )
    16. Listen to soothing classical, jazz, ambient, or alternative music
    17. Watch ‘Freedom to Fascism’– a film by Aaron Russo (can be found here:
    18. Watch ‘Why We Fight’–a film by Eugene Jarecki(can be found here:…r_embedded)
    19. Watch ‘Endgame’–a film by Alex Jones (can be found here:
    20. Below is advice from John Perkins’ book, entitled THE SECRET HISTORY OF THE AMERICAN EMPIRE (The Truth About Economic Hit Men, Jackals, And How To Change The World), pp. 322-329. “AVOID SHOPPING AS ‘RETAIL THERAPY’
    (Instead,jog,meditate,read,or find some other solution).
    SHOP CONSCIOUSLY –if there is something you must have,purchase items whose packaging, ingredients, and methods of production are sustainable and support life.
    Write letters telling Monsanto,De Beers, ExxonMobil, Adidas, Ford, GE, Coca-Cola, WALMART, and other labor exploiters and environment destroyers why you REFUSE to purchase from them.
    DOWNSIZE (your car,home,wardrobe) –everything in your life (and don’t buy what you don’t need) SUPPORT/SEND MONEY only to non-profits, radio stations,and other organizations that promote JUST causes.
    VOLUNTEER your time and energy to such organizations.
    ENCOURAGE stores to buy from local growers, producers, and suppliers.
    Shop at your LOCAL FARMERS’ MARKET
    AVOID DRINKING WATER THAT IS FLUORIDATED (only your toothpaste should have non-industrial fluoride)
    INSIST that those who use your money –banks,pensions,mutual funds,companies –make socially and environmentally responsible investments.” (end quote)
    21. Better yet –invest in precious metals (silver/gold).
    22. Research every company whose products or services you buy
    23. Research every organization to which you donate your hard-earned money
    24. Vote with your dollars!
    25. Watch ‘The Secret of Oz’–a film by William T. Still (can be found here:
    26. Get prepared for when the U.S. dollar TOTALLY COLLAPSES,and loses it’s place,as the world’s sole reserve currency. The ‘globalists’(European Central Bankers,like the Rothschilds,and the Rockefellers,as well) are planning to reduce the American Middle Class to the status of the Third World poor. That is,they are going to wipe out the American ‘Middle Class’. That is why they shipped our jobs overseas. That is why they engineered the current economic ‘downturn’. That is why no bankers have gone to jail,over their financial crimes –they are immune. There is no ‘justice’ in this system, it’s “just us” vs. them. It is owned, and operated by European Central Bankers,and their Allies in London,in Frankfurt, and on Wall St.
    27. Did I mention invest in silver (and gold)?
    28. Global,non-violent,NON-COMPLIANCE is the answer,of We the Plebs,to the ‘elite’New World Order!
    29. Find alternatives to EVERYTHING that they’ve set up,to entrap you in THEIR system. (Become a serious ‘prepper’)
    30. What would happen if 200 MILLION AMERICANS refused to pay their taxes,in 2012? (Just a hypothetical question)
    31. Familiarize yourself with the concept of BOYCOTT
    32. Corporate Membership in the CFR (Council on Foreign Relations):
    33. Don’t ever join a ‘secret’society. Expand the above list,and share it with everyone you know!

  • Naming Names: Your Real Government (When dark deeds unfold, point the finger in this direction).
    by Tony Cartalucci

    The Real Revolution
    “Boycott the globalists, cut off their support, undermine their system, and they lose their ability to commit these atrocities. That will be a real revolution and it can start today. Not burning cities and masked rebels waving flags, but communities no longer dependent and fueling a corrupt system we all know must come to an end.”

    Q: What exactly do they plan to do once they “identify” them?

    A: I suspect you already know, as people in other countries, who have displeased those in power, have discovered, much to their dismay. At the very least, you could be “disappeared.” In the Arab world they describe this as “being taken to the far side of the sun” where you will never be seen or heard from again. Should their be a major economic and societal collapse, followed by martial law, we may find out to just what lengths our financial masters will go.

    I thought I understood the Laws of this land !
    I thought you had to get permission to divulge another
    person’s comments via phone or such instrument.
    I thought it was illegal to bring anothr person’s
    comments into a court – as it was not admissable.
    I thought that OBAMA was a lawyer and understood the
    laws of these United States.
    I thought HE (OBAMA) knew that our laws differ from

    I couldn’t find the document on the Fed site either. Found other RFPs, but not this one. I did, however, send an email to the contact address noted. So far, no bounce.

    I think a potential reason for this not looking ‘professional’ is that it was generated using an electronic system as opposed to using, say, a Word doc or other word processing template.

    It’s no surprise. When you control ideas, you can spin the public until they are dizzy. Read “1984”, by George Orwell. He foretold this back in 1948. (He just got his dates wrong).

    So did Ayn Rand in “Atlas Shrugged”, in 1957.

    When JFK issued Executive Order 11110, it essentially repealed the Federal Reserve Act of 1913. He was shot just weeks later, and the fix was in, as the SS agents abandoned JFks limo as it rounded the book depository.

    The control of ideas is at the heart of controlling the sheeple. The Fed certainly doesn’t want the sheeple to realize that the Fed runs their lives, charges them interest to borrow what is supossed to be the money of the Republic. 4 cents paper and ink, buys them conrtrol and servitude.

  • Vic

    USAGold dot com shut down their forum, because too much truth was being told about teh banking industry, and what the Fed did in teh early 2000s to precipitate the 2006-8 housing collapse. If you speak the truth now, you garner the attention of Eschelon, which listens to all traffic. To speak the truth now makes you an enemy of the State. 1984, it’s here.

    Global Revolution 1: American Revolution 2: Day 18: Communication 2
    4 Oct 2011 (g1a2d0018c2)

    Preface from IronBoltBruce: I am not “Anonymous”, nor do I know anyone who is. Therefore, I cannot tell you with certainty who actually originated the two YouTube messages that follow. I also can neither confirm nor debunk their references to gold, silver and the Bank of England. Aside from any ramifications with respect to those unknowns, however, I personally endorse these messages.

    Message 1 of 2: Anonymous: The Bankers Are The Problem (listen)

    Message 2 of 2: Anonymous: Message to the Federal Reserve and U.S. Congress (read it)

    Message to the Federal Reserve and to the Congress of the United States of America from Anonymous

    Hello to the Federal Reserve and Congress of the United States of America. I am 0407, and I am a member of Anonymous. I wanted to share a few points that Anonymous sees as impediments to the Freedom and Prosperity of the American People.

    We know that the Federal Reserve is not a true Federal Agency. We know exactly what it is. It is a privately owned banking corporation whose majority shareholders are from outside the United States such as the Bank of England. We have watched it destroy the United States of America from within since 1913 and have watched it completely fail the American People, despite the charter which it had been given. It has been responsible for 100% of the economic troubles which have befallen this nation since before the Great Depression, all the while blaming it on the people and their actions, while not taking responsibility for it’s own misdeeds, and criminal acts of fraud.

    We know that it is nothing more than a means to control the American Government through the manipulation of the currency of this nation, and we are through believing that our Nation can not survive without it. We are sick of watching politicians that do not have the People’s best interests in mind gain their office only so that their only agenda is one set for them by the Special Interest groups which it control. We are through believing its lies, and we are, quite frankly, through with it.

    We order that you, the Federal Reserve Bank of the United States, return the power of printing the money of the United States of America back to the duly elected Congress of the United States immediately, and disband the Federal Reserve System. Those former and current Chairmen and the current and former Governors of the Federal Reserve who are still among the living present themselves immediately to the appropiate authorities for the acts of criminal fraud which they have knowingly committed on the American People.

    To the Congress of the United States of America:

    We the People, through the Voice of Anonymous, order that you immediately repeal the Federal Reserve Act of 1913, rip up this corrupt institution’s charter and authorize the United States Treasury Department to begin printing DEBT FREE money based on the Greenback created during the Administration of President Abraham Lincoln. We order that this money be backed with SILVER. It is known by Anonymous that gold reserves of the world are held by the same people who control the International Banks and the Federal Reserve. We know that there is no gold in Fort Knox which belongs to the American People anymore, therefore we absolutely order that the new money of the United States be backed 100% by silver reserves held in ownership by WE THE PEOPLE OF THE UNITED STATES OF AMERICA.

    This is not a request. This is not a plea. This is not a demand. This is an order from We the People of the United States of America.

    We are Anonymous.

    We are Legion.

    United As One.

    Divided by Zero.

    We do not Forgive.

    We do not Forget.

    Expect Us.

  • Can you name ONE other candidate with a track record comparable to Ron Paul’s,
    on BEHALF OF THE AMERICAN PEOPLE? (JFK doesn’t count – that was 1963 – and, the same people who killed him off, are running things now!)

    Just ONE?

    Didn’t think so.

    Ron Paul Leads Hearing On First Ever Audit Of Fed

    Ron Paul 2012. End the so-called ‘Fed’. End the endless wars. Bring the troops home & defend American borders. Restore America NOW…

  • Cecilia Redman

    I refuse to be intimidated by them or anyone else. The Bible tells us that this is going to happen in the “Last Days” and to be prepared. As a Christian, to stop saying evil is evil is tantamount to denying Christ, to me. And that I will never do. Come what may, I will always do and say what God would have me do and say and face the the worlds consequences if I must. I have a better home waiting in the next life.

  • “The way to understand all of this is to realize that it’s part of a broader syndrome,
    in which wealthy Americans who benefit hugely from a system rigged in their favor
    react with hysteria to anyone who points out just how rigged the system is.”
