Ron Paul may have retired from Congress, but his dream for the Federal Reserve to be audited and ultimately abolished is alive and well.
Rep. Paul Broun, R-Ga., was a staunch ally of Rep. Paul’s legislation to audit the Fed and is now the lead sponsor of a bill identical to the one that easily passed the House in the 112th Congress.
“I’m an original intent constitutionalist, as was Ron Paul while he was here,” Broun told WND. “We should audit the Fed. Hopefully we get rid of the Fed, and I introduced a bill to do that also.”
Read Ron Paul’s classic work, “End the Fed,” available in WND’s Superstore.
Broun said it’s incredible that the public knows virtually nothing about an institution with so much power over our economy.
“Congress has basically abdicated its duty to control money and the monetary supply and control of our money supply as a nation over to this semi-governmental agency that’s not really governmental,” he said. “In reality, we have had no auditing. We have absolutely no idea what they’re doing over there.
“We’ve had this quantitative easing now into the third time, which has been totally unproductive in trying to get our economy going. The Fed housing policy was part of the reason we had the housing bubble and crash. They’re still managing our monetary supply. They’re creating more and more dollars that have no or very little value behind them. Our dollars are becoming worth less and less. As time goes on, they’re going to be worthless.”
He added, “It’s absolutely critical that we audit the Fed so the American people can see what’s going on over there. Do it from top to bottom so that we can have transparency in this entity called the Federal Reserve. Hopefully, the American people will see that we need to go back to the gold standard, which I’ve introduced, and get rid of the Fed.”
The congressman said it’s ridiculous that the only clues we get on Fed actions are in the periodic comments from Fed Chairman Ben Bernanke.
“We see what he says, but we really have no clue how they’re managing our money across the board, how they are dealing with big banks or small community banks. We have no idea what they’re doing in creating monetary policy,” said Broun, who noted that lawmakers don’t even know how much Bernanke and other Fed officials earn in salary or receive in the way of benefits.
The GOP-led House easily approved the bill to audit the Fed in the previous Congress, but Broun lamented that it died on the other side of Capitol Hill.
“The problem is Mr. Obstructionist, Harry Reid, threw it in the trash can over on the Senate side,” he said. “So hopefully we can get the Senate moving on it by getting the American people demanding that we audit the Fed.”
Broun reiterated that his ultimate goal is to abolish the Federal Reserve and return control over monetary policy to Congress. He admits people don’t have much confidence in Congress either, but Broun contends putting Congress in that role at least offers the chance of that power and money ultimately returning to the the states.
“I’m a Marine and I’m fighting for liberty,” he said, “and everything I do up here is fighting for the future of our nation.”

Barack Obama has greatly expanded the powers of the presidency during his time in the White House, but there is one institution that he simply will not mess with. There is one organization that is considered to be so sacred in Washington D.C. that Obama will not dare utter a single negative word against it. That organization is the Federal Reserve. Even though he has shown that he is unafraid to pick a fight with just about everyone else in Washington, Obama flat out refuses to criticize the Fed and he even reappointed Ben Bernanke for another term as Fed Chairman even though Bernanke has a track record of failure that would make the Chicago Cubs look good. Perhaps Obama is aware of what has happened to other presidents that have chosen to tangle with the Fed. In any event, it has become clear that Obama submits to anything that the Fed says without question, and the controversy over the "trillion dollar coin" is another perfect example of this. For weeks, there has been much speculation in the mainstream media about the possibility that the Obama administration may print up a one trillion dollar coin that it would use to keep paying the bills of the federal government if an agreement to raise the debt ceiling is not reached. But on Saturday the Federal Reserve killed that idea, and we shouldn't be surprised by that because under no circumstances will the Fed ever accept a threat to their monopoly over money creation in the United States. If the Federal Reserve had allowed Obama to print up a debt-free trillion dollar coin, that would have set a very dangerous precedent for the Fed. The American people would have realized that the federal government can actually create debt-free money whenever it wants and that it does not actually have to borrow money from anyone. That is something that the Fed probably would have moved heaven and earth to keep from happening. But now we won't ever know how far the Fed would really be willing to go to keep their monopoly over money creation, because Obama has no plans to challenge this latest ruling from "the real boss" of our financial system.
Sadly, most Americans don't even realize that a private banking cartel has a monopoly over all money creation in this country. In recent years they have abused this power by wildly printing money ("quantitative easing"), and by making more than 16 trillion dollars in secret loans to their friends during the last financial crisis. Under our system, the private Federal Reserve creates money whenever they want, and nobody else gets to create money. It is an insane system, but very, very few of our politicians will ever dare to question it.
At this point, the U.S. Treasury Department is essentially just an arm of the Federal Reserve. That is why it was no surprise that the Fed and the Treasury Department issued a joint statement on Saturday. According to Treasury spokesman Anthony Coley, both the Treasury and the Fed have come to the conclusion that under no circumstances should a trillion dollar coin be printed up by the Obama administration...

I candidly confess that I am not very superstitious. I don’t care how many cracks I step on on a sidewalk; I don’t care how many cracked mirrors I look at; I’ve never thrown salt over my shoulder; I’ve never rubbed a red-headed boy’s head for luck; I don’t carry four-leaf clovers or rabbit’s feet in my pocket; and the number 13 doesn’t scare me a bit. All of that notwithstanding, however, I can’t help but believe that 2013 is going to be a rough year.
One thing is certainly clear: the last year that ended in 13 was a horrific year for the people of the United States. In fact, 1913 was one of the worst years of the Twentieth Century. Consider the following:
February 3, 1913
This is the date when the 16th Amendment was ratified, and the direct income tax and IRS were instituted. This was a flagrant repudiation of freedom principles. What began as a temporary measure to support the War of Northern Aggression became a permanent income revenue stream for an unconstitutional–and ever-growing–central government.
April 8, 1913
This is the date when the 17th Amendment was ratified. This amendment overturned the power of the State legislatures to elect their own senators and replaced it with a direct, popular vote. This was another serious blow against State sovereignty. The framers of the Constitution desired that the influence and power in Washington, D.C., be kept as close to the people and states as possible. For example, the number of representatives in the House of Representatives was to be decided by a limited number of voters. In the original Constitution, the ratio of “people of the several States” deciding their House member could not exceed “one for every thirty thousand.” (Article. I. Section. 2. Paragraph. 3.) And when it came to the US Senate, the framers also recognized the authority of each State legislature to select its own senators, thereby keeping power and influence from aggregating in Washington, D.C. The 17th Amendment seriously damaged the influence and power of the states by forcing them to elect their US senators by popular vote. The bigger the State, the less influence the State legislature has in determining its US senator. Senators who answered to State legislators, each answering to a limited number of voters, were much more accountable to the “citizens of the several States” than those who were elected by a large number (many times numbering into the millions) of people. For all intents and purposes (at least in the larger states), US Senators are more like “mini-Presidents” than they are representatives of sovereign states.
December 23, 1913
This is the date when the Federal Reserve Act was passed. This Act placed oversight of America’s financial matters into the hands of a cabal of private international bankers, who have completely destroyed the constitutional principles of sound money and (for the most part) free enterprise. No longer would the marketplace (private consumption, thrift, growth, etc.) be the determinant of the US economy (which is what freedom is all about), but now a private, unaccountable international banking cartel would have total power and authority to micromanage (for their own private, parochial purposes) America’s financial sector. Virtually every recession, depression, and downturn (including the one we are now experiencing) has been the direct result of the Fed’s manipulation (again, for its own purposes and with Washington’s cooperation) of the market.
Already, 2013 is shaping up to rival the monstrous year of 1913. Here are some of the reasons why:

The latest total number was estimated around 700,000 electronic signatures according to RT news, although this has not reached one percent of American population, it signals a dissatisfaction the American people have towards the government. Will this number keep rising? Is this the only last solution?One week following President Obama's victory for re-election, representative from... more

The elections of 2012 proved America was no longer a democracy.
I think the Death of Democracy in America began when the bankers were allowed to kill President Kennedy and the public did not even demand a criminal investigation. Disrespect for Democracy grew each time the bankers were allowed to blow up a buildings with Americans inside in 1993, 1995 and again in 2001.
The election riggers in America are so brazen that in 7 states last Tuesday they announced the winners even before the votes were counted. In California polls indicated that by a margin of 2 to 1 voters wanted food to be labeled so they would know whether or not it contained Genetically Modified organisms. I was surprised that even more did not support GMO labeling. News articles revealed that GMO food caused cancer, underweight internal organs with no lab animals surviving after 3 generations in good health and an ability to reproduce. Yet after the votes were counted GMO labeling was defeated by a wide margin. Frankly, I am suspicious.
The elections of 2012 proved America was no longer a democracy.
A nationwide Harris poll about the TSA revealed these astounding results.
A total of 30% of American adults said they would be “willing” or “somewhat willing” to accept a body cavity search to fly.
77% of American adults said the TSA was doing an excellent, good or fair job.
A total of 57% of American adults said it would be “completely” or “somewhat reasonable” that travelers should be made by law to obey every command given by a TSA agent inside an airport or any other public place.
35% of American adults would be “completely” or “somewhat willing” to wear a shock bracelet that would both track travelers through the airport as well as allow airport officials and flight crews to incapacitate them.
There was some good news. 65% found TSA agents touching travelers’ genitals to be unacceptable.

The Fed is a private for profit cartel which controls the money supply. The fed profits off of interest on our national debt when we pay our IRS taxes.
The higher the deficit the more profit ! The Fed has never been audited. Who owns the Fed and what country are they from?
The Founders revolted from this same “for profit” Central Bank system of European Kings. They knew it would eventual lead to debt servitude.

With two debates down and two to go, there's a lot of talk about who's winning and losing, about "style points" and, of course, intense scrutiny on what's been said. But let's take a moment to reflect on what hasn't been discussed or hasn't gotten nearly enough attention at the halfway point of the debate cycle:
The Fed & Ben Bernanke
There have been two debates and no mention of the Federal Reserve? How is that possible? The economy is the biggest issue of this campaign and the Fed is playing a huge role in the economy so it's hard to fathom that not one question has been asked about Ben Bernanke & Co. and none of the candidates have brought up the central bank.
One theory is that the "average" American doesn't care about the Fed, know what it does or who Ben Bernanke is. I think that underestimates the intelligence of the American people. They might not understand the intricacies of monetary policy but they do know they're getting almost no return on money markets and CDs and that a zero interest rate policy is highly abnormal.
Related: No, the Fed Does NOT 'Print Money': Just Explain It
Moreover, Ron Paul rose to national prominence in large part because of his criticism of the Fed and his "audit the Fed" bill passed the House this summer.
Some believe the politicians don't want to mention the Fed because Bernanke's easy money is letting them get away with not seriously dealing with the deficit; all the more reason to have the discussion in these debates.
In sum, it's a black mark on both moderators and all four candidates that Fed policy — and Ben Bernanke's future — hasn't been the topic of intense debate.
How to Fix Housing
Arguably the most important economic indicator, housing has shown signs of life. Friday morning, JPMorgan CEO Jamie Dimon said "housing has turned the corner," a view supported by trends in home prices, starts and permits as well as the drop in foreclosures.
Vice President Biden referenced the Obama administration's efforts to help homeowners last night — "we moved in and helped people refinance their homes," he said — and chided Republicans for allegedly blocking legislation that would "help 14 million people who are struggling to stay in their homes because their mortgages are upside down, but they never missed a mortgage payment."
It would've been nice to hear a discussion about whether the administration's efforts really have helped homeowners and, conversely, what the Romney-Ryan plan is to help ensure the nascent, still-fragile, housing recovery takes hold.
Rising Gasoline Prices
Gas prices are at or near record levels, which is the ultimate pocketbook issue for millions of Americans.
In the first presidential debate, Mitt Romney mentioned that "gasoline prices have doubled under the president."
But most of the discussion that night was about U.S. energy policy and whether or not President Obama deserves credit (or blame) for the increase in domestic drilling.
There was zero mention of gas prices in last night's VP debate, or rising food prices for that matter; that's a missed opportunity and belies the notion that the candidates are really focused on issues that matter to the middle class.
Let me know what you think: Are there other issues the candidates should be paying more attention to? Or do you feel like the debates so far really have focused on the "right" issues?

America is in deep shambles and our leaders have no clue what to do about it. As we face the fact that New Jersey's unemployment rate is at 9.9 percent, its highest level in three decades. Not to mention the ever increasing national deficit as well as the increasing number of people on welfare. As more Americans are becoming increasingly dependent on our government, more laws and policies are being passed that chip away at our abilities to make decisions for ourselves.
