Ron Paul On Ending The Fed: The Power Of Ideas Will Prevail 101210Paul

Texas Congressman Ron Paul, who will take control of the House subcommittee that oversees the Federal Reserve in the new year, has re-emphasized his belief that the Federal Reserve should be abolished, but warned that turning ideas into reality takes time and effort.

Paul, author of the book “End the Fed,” told Bloomberg News today that his first action in the job will be to “think things through and not over-do things too soon.”

When asked if he intends to end the Fed, the Congressman replied “not right up front, but obviously that is the implication.”

“Even in my book about ending the Fed, I talk about not turning the keys and locking the doors, I talk about a transition.” Paul added.

The Congressman spoke about how he would go about reining in the Federal Reserve and the reasons he believes it is vital to do so.

“I’ll have plans for hearings to find out how much information we can get. Obviously it is very popular with the American people to audit the Fed, to know what they are doing.” Paul said.

“They can spend trillions of dollars and we don’t know where it goes. They have a bigger budget, they spend more money than the Congress does, and yet we have no oversight. It was never intended that a secret body like this could create money out of thin air and spend it, take care of some banks and big business and foreign banks while the American people struggle.” the Congressman added.

In response to comments from Barney Frank, the outgoing chairman of the House Financial Services Committee, that many establishment Republicans do not share Paul’s views on the Fed, the Congressman stated “I think that’s good advice.”

“If next week I issue a subpoena for such and such, I don’t think that would be met with a good acceptance,” Paul said. “And it’s not like I am a powerful person. My ideas are powerful but there is a committee chairman and a speaker of the House. I’m realistic and I know what that means. But I also know the strength of ideas and the power of ideas, and that’s what will prevail.” the Congressman urged.

Paul was selected to head up the domestic monetary policy subcommittee earlier this week by incoming House Financial Services chairman Spencer Bachus.

“This is the leadership team that crafted the first comprehensive financial reform bill to put an end to the bailouts, wind down the taxpayer funding of Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac, and enforce a strong audit of the Federal Reserve,” the Alabama Republican said in a statement, referring to legislation to audit the fed that Ron Paul introduced earlier in the year.

The bill eventually gained the support of 320 members of the House and staved off several attempts to derail it before a portion of the measure ended up in the Dodd-Frank financial regulatory overhaul.

“What I want to do is emphasize the oversight of the Federal Reserve, pursue this idea of auditing the Fed.” Paul said today. “We have a right to know, Congress has an obligation to know, the people want to know and Congress is behind us to do that right now.”

“We have to look into it and we have to start to consider reforms.” the Congressman said.

“I think it’s also very important for us to understand why monetary policy is so dangerous and why we should think about changing the Fed and getting rid of the Fed, and that is their contribution to unemployment, their contribution to the business cycle.” Paul added.

“They are the instigators of inflation. So for many many years, until at least three years ago, they were always given the credit for boom times and it was always thought that they could get us out of the bad times, but that no longer plays out because it isn’t true.”

“They give us the inflation but then they also give us bubbles that eventually always burst. But we are now in a serious problem with the financial markets and the monetary markets, and already many people around the world are talking about monetary reform, the dollar will not last as a reserve standard.” the Congressman warned.

Support #altnews & keep Dark Politricks alive

Remember I told you over 5 years ago that they would be trying to shut down sites and YouTube channels that are not promoting the "Official" view. Well it's all happening now big time. Peoples Channels get no money from YouTube any more and Google is being fishy with their AdSense giving money for some clicks but not others. The time is here, it's not "Obama's Internet Cut Off Switch" it's "Trumps Sell Everyones Internet Dirty Laundry Garage Sale". This site must be on some list at GCHQ/NSA as my AdSense revenue which I rely on has gone down by a third. Either people are not helping out by visiting sponsors sanymore or I am being blackballed like many YouTube sites.

It's not just Google/YouTube defunding altenative chanels (mine was shut), but Facebook is also removing content, shutting pages, profiles and groups and removing funds from #altnews that way as well. I was recently kicked off FB and had a page "unpublished" with no reason given. If you don't know already all Facebooks Private Messages and Secret Groups are still analysed and checked for words related to drugs, sex, war etc against their own TOS. Personally I know there are undercover Irish police moving from group to group cloning peoples accounts and getting people booted. Worse than that I know some people in prison now for the content they had on their "secret private group". Use Telegrams secret chat mode to chat on, or if you prefer Wickr. If you really need to, buy a dumb phone with nothing for the NSA/GCHQ to hack into. Ensure it has no GPS tracking on it and that the battery can be removed. These are usually built for old people to get used to technology storing only a set of numbers to call. However they have no games, applications to install or other ways people can exploit the computer tracking device you carry round with you most of the day - your smart phone. If you are paranoid ensure that you can remove the battery when travelling around and do so to prevent GPS tracking or phone mast triangulation. Even with your phone in Flight mode or turned off, it can be turned on remotely and any features like front or back cameras, microphones and keylogging software can be installed to trace you.

So if your not supporting this site already which brings you news from the Left to the Right (really the same war mongering rubbish) then I could REALLY do with some..

Even if it's just £5 or tick the monthly subscription box and throw a few pound my way each month, it will be much appreciated. Read on to find out why.


Any support to keep this site would be appreciated. You could set up a monthly subscription for £2 like some people do or you could pay a one off donation as a gift.
I am not asking you to pay me for other people's articles, this is a clearing house as well as place to put my own views out into the world. I am asking for help to write more articles like my recent false flag gas attack to get WWIII started in Syria, and Trump away from Putin. Hopefully a few missiles won't mean a WikiLeaks release of that infamous video Trump apparently made in a Russian bedroom with Prostitutes. Also please note that this article was written just an hour after the papers came out, and I always come back and update them.

If you want to read JUST my own articles then use the top menu I have written hundreds of articles for this site and I host numerous amounts of material that has seen me the victim of hacks, DOS plus I have been kicked off multiple hosting companies, free blogging sites, and I have even had threats to cease and desist from the US armed forces. Therefore I have to pay for my own server which is NOT cheap. The more people who read these article on this site the more it costs me so some support would be much appreciated.

I have backups of removed reports shown, then taken down after pressure, that show collusion between nations and the media. I have the full redacted 28/29 pages from the 9.11 commission on the site which seems to have been forgotten about as we help Saudi Arabia bomb Yemeni kids hiding in the rubble with white phosphorus, an illegal weaapon. One that the Israeli's even used when they bombed the UN compound in Gaza during Operation Cast Lead. We complain about Syrian troops (US Controlled ISIS) using chemical weapons to kill "beautiful babies". I suppose all those babies we kill in Iraq, Yemen, Somalia and Syria are just not beautiful enough for Trumps beautiful baby ratio. Plus we kill about 100 times as many as ISIS or the Syrian army have managed by a factor of about 1000 to 1.

I also have a backup of the FOX News series that looked into Israeli connections to 9.11. Obviously FOX removed that as soon as AIPAC, ADL and the rest of the Hasbra brigade protested.

I also have a copy of the the original Liberal Democrats Freedom Bill which was quickly and quietly removed from their site once they enacted and replaced with some watered down rubbish instead once they got into power. No change to police tactics, protesting or our unfair extradition treaty with the USA but we did get a stop to being clamped on private land instead of the mny great ideas in the original.

So ANY support to keep this site running would be much appreciated! I don't have much money after leaving my job and it is a choice between shutting the server or selling the domain or paying a lot of money just so I can show this material.

Material like the FSB Bombings that put Putin in power or the Google no 1 spot when you search for protecting yourself from UK Police with "how to give a no comment interview". If you see any adverts that interest you then please visit them as it helps me without you even needing to give me any money. A few clicks per visit is all it takes to help keep the servers running and tag any tweets with alternative news from the mainstream with the #altnews hashtag I created to keep it alive!

However if you don't want to use the very obvious and cost free ways (to you) to help the site and keep me writing for it then please consider making a small donation. Especially if you have a few quid sitting in your PayPal account doing nothing useful. Why not do a monthly subscription for less money instead. Will you really notice £5 a month?
