Ron Paul Snubbed on Federal Reserve Question at CNN Debate

Author of ‘Audit the Fed’ Bill Not Asked for Position on Auditing the Fed

Texas Congressman Ron Paul, who has consistently ranked in the top three of the GOP field in 2012, was blatantly skipped last night in the CNN debate on a question to which he has dedicated nearly his entire career in government– the Federal Reserve.

Yes, he has repeatedly introduced bills to audit and end the fed, wrote a book titled End the Fed; he currently chairs the House Financial Services Subcommittee on Domestic Monetary Policy and Technology and has campaigned heavily on the issue nationally since 2007. But he was not given a response to the questioning the candidates’ positions on auditing the Federal Reserve.

Worst still, it was at the Tea Party debate, a movement Paul also had a hand in founding.

Watch the video:

Tea Party Republican Debate Question #5: Should The Federal Reserve Be Audited?

CBS article identified the federal reserve as a major ‘target’ in GOP debate rhetoric, but again there was no mention of Paul.

Instead, the focus hinged around reaction to Rick Perry’s ‘treasonous’ statements, in which the Texas Governor has willingly stolen Ron Paul’s thunder on an issue he fought to bring to the surface of political debate. Now that the private Federal Reserve has become an unavoidable issue, there is silence from the man who sought to reign it in. Instead, Herman Cain, himself the former head of the Kansas City Federal Reserve, got time for a response, as did Bachmann, Romeny and Santorum.

CNN published this live blog on the question during the debate:

9:00 p.m. ET–Romney: Of course we should see what the Fed is doing.
8:59 p.m. ET–@CNNSitRoom: Happening now: Send your comments and questions for the first-ever #CNNTeaParty Republican Presidential Debate.
8:58 p.m. ET–Perry stands by statements.
8:58 p.m. ET–Bachmann: That’s up to Gov. Perry. I wouldn’t keep him as chairman. The federal reserve has a lot to answer for. They’ve got to be put on a tight leash.
8:57 p.m. Q: Do you agree with Perry, who came close to accusing Fed chief Bernanke of treason?
8:56 p.m. ET–Cain: Yes it should be audited. And I believe it’s focus needs to be narrowed. I don’t believe in ending the fed, I believe in fixing the Fed.
8:55 p.m. ET– Santorum: Yes. With respect to the last segment, what we need to do is have a pro-growth plan that can pass the Congress with Democratic support.
8:54 p.m. ET–Q from Gastonia, North Carolina: What is your position on the Federal Reserve? Should it be audited?

Perry stood by his statement calling federal reserve action ‘almost treasonous,’ adding that it is a ‘very clear statement of fact’– ready made for a soundbyte. This posturing puts him at the fore of the fed issue in the same public mind that has been convinced he’s the nominee apparent without even a vote.

The media have aided the seizure of the Federal Reserve issue knowingly, helping an empty suit candidate to coopt an issue that is touchy for the ruling oligarchy. Clearly there’s an attempt there to shift public anger on the fed over dollar policies and contain growing awareness about the private bank’s unaccountable actions. Tossing that nuclear football to Rick Perry will ensure that it is dropped, watered down in the coming debates and later wiped from media coverage and much of the public memory once the issue has fizzled.

Of course this tactic is nothing new. Jon Stewart piercingly identified the conspiracy to ignore Ron Paul in the major media, while his viability has also been clear but under-reported– frommilitary donations, online fundraising, polling (even against Obama), straw polls and other indicators, proving the Congressman’s wide appeal.

There’s been an ongoing effort to marginalize Ron Paul and squash his blossoming campaign. And at CNN last night, there were dirty tricks again.

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 happening 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".

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 IU know there are undercover Irish police moving from group to group cloning peoples accounts and getting people booted. Worse than that I know people in court at the moment for the content they had on their secret private group. Use Telegrams secret chat mode to chat on, or if you prefer Wickr. Or if you need to, buy a dumb phone with nothing for the NSA to hack into if you are that paranoid. Ensure it has no GPS tracking on it and 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 and other ways people can exploit the computer tracking device you carry round with you most of the day.

So if your not supporting this site already which brings you news from the Left to the Right (really the same war mongering bollox) 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.

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?
