Auditing the Fed

Postby alpha » Thu Feb 09, 5:55 am

I'm going three for three tonight, since zero hedge has been so interesting and this forum has been so slow. Anyway, ZeroPointNow writes...

"After a Democrat filibuster of Rand Paul's "Audit the Fed" bill - reintroduced in January along with 8 co-sponsors and passed by 53 Senators including Bernie Sanders, the Senator from Kentucky believes he may find a friend in President Trump, who has previously endorsed the idea. Opponents to the audit, also known as establishment shills, suggest that transparency might lead to scrutiny. You don't say? On Tucker Carlson Tonight, Paul explained how the Fed hurts people:..."

This likely could never have occurred with either a republican, or obviously a democratic president, however under Trump this could occur and would be a first. Rand Paul points out that the main lobbying effort against this endeavor is the Fed.

I agree he made his money, by being an establishment shill. However, he's neither republican, nor a democrat and has shown that he plays politics by neither's rules. He also stated during his campaign that he was open to the idea of auditing them. Just one house to go and it could become a reality, if zillions in bribes, er lobbying don't come out to stop it.

Perhaps the Fed is the devil and has been backing the apocalypse against the muslims and other impoverished nations for the past hundred years?
