Talking HR 1207 UPDATES "The Federal Reserve Transparency Act"

READ ALL ABOUT IT
AuditThe Fed!

Dr. Paul's statement on HR 1207

FEDERAL RESERVE TRANSPARENCY ACT HR 1207
Capitol Switchboard: 202-224-3121

Source: http://www.campaignforliberty.com/bl...ew=12517&cpg=1

Momentum continues to build for Dr. Paul's legislation to audit the Federal Reserve! The title is "The Federal Reserve Transparency Act," and the bill currently has 11 cosponsors:

- Rep. Neil Abercrombie [HI-1]
- Rep. Michele Bachmann [MN-6]
- Rep. Roscoe G. Bartlett [MD-6]
- Rep. Paul Broun [GA-10]
- Rep. Dan Burton [IN-5]
- Rep. Walter Jones, Jr. [NC-3]
- Rep. Steve Kagen [WI-8]
- Rep. Ted Poe [TX-2]
- Rep. Bill Posey [FL-15]
- Rep. Denny Rehberg [MT]
- Rep. Lynn Woolsey [CA-6]

Here's Dr. Paul's statement introducing the bill:

Quote:
Madam Speaker, I rise to introduce the Federal Reserve Transparency Act. Throughout its nearly 100-year history, the Federal Reserve has presided over the near-complete destruction of the United States dollar. Since 1913 the dollar has lost over 95% of its purchasing power, aided and abetted by the Federal Reserve's loose monetary policy. How long will we as a Congress stand idly by while hard-working Americans see their savings eaten away by inflation? Only big-spending politicians and politically favored bankers benefit from inflation.

Serious discussion of proposals to oversee the Federal Reserve is long overdue. I have been a longtime proponent of more effective oversight and auditing of the Fed, but I was far from the first Congressman to advocate these types of proposals. Esteemed former members of the Banking Committee such as Chairmen Wright Patman and Henry B. Gonzales were outspoken critics of the Fed and its lack of transparency.

Since its inception, the Federal Reserve has always operated in the shadows, without sufficient scrutiny or oversight of its operations. While the conventional excuse is that this is intended to reduce the Fed's susceptibility to political pressures, the reality is that the Fed acts as a foil for the government. Whenever you question the Fed about the strength of the dollar, they will refer you to the Treasury, and vice versa. The Federal Reserve has, on the one hand, many of the privileges of government agencies, while retaining benefits of private organizations, such as being insulated from Freedom of Information Act requests.

The Federal Reserve can enter into agreements with foreign central banks and foreign governments, and the GAO is prohibited from auditing or even seeing these agreements. Why should a government-established agency, whose police force has federal law enforcement powers, and whose notes have legal tender status in this country, be allowed to enter into agreements with foreign powers and foreign banking institutions with no oversight? Particularly when hundreds of billions of dollars of currency swaps have been announced and implemented, the Fed's negotiations with the European Central Bank, the Bank of International Settlements, and other institutions should face increased scrutiny, most especially because of their significant effect on foreign policy. If the State Department were able to do this, it would be characterized as a rogue agency and brought to heel, and if a private individual did this he might face prosecution under the Logan Act, yet the Fed avoids both fates.

More importantly, the Fed's funding facilities and its agreements with the Treasury should be reviewed. The Treasury's supplementary financing accounts that fund Fed facilities allow the Treasury to funnel money to Wall Street without GAO or Congressional oversight. Additional funding facilities, such as the Primary Dealer Credit Facility and the Term Securities Lending Facility, allow the Fed to keep financial asset prices artificially inflated and subsidize poorly performing financial firms.

The Federal Reserve Transparency Act would eliminate restrictions on GAO audits of the Federal Reserve and open Fed operations to enhanced scrutiny. We hear officials constantly lauding the benefits of transparency and especially bemoaning the opacity of the Fed, its monetary policy, and its funding facilities. By opening all Fed operations to a GAO audit and calling for such an audit to be completed by the end of 2010, the Federal Reserve Transparency Act would achieve much-needed transparency of the Federal Reserve. I urge my colleagues to support this bill.

As Dr. Paul and others discussed at CPAC, Campaign for Liberty is committed to getting H.R. 1207, a bill to audit the Federal Reserve System, passed in this Congress.

Since its creation in 1913, the Fed's control of money and credit in this country has resulted in a 95% devaluation of our dollar and the piling up, just in the last year, of almost $10 trillion in bailouts and loans.

The Fed has so far resisted attempts to provide information on how it is spending the bailout money and currently dictates how accountable it will be to Congress.

Introduced last Thursday, H.R. 1207 already has bipartisan support with 11 cosponsors from all across the country. In contrast to the massive "stimulus" package, Dr. Paul's bill can be read in less than five minutes.

Our new Audit the Fed flier was hugely popular last week at CPAC, and we are confident that the current economic crisis has created interest in many who had previously been closed to such an idea. We've now added it to our "Fliers" section so you can print them out and spread the word!

With your help, we will get this bill through the Financial Services Committee, the House and Senate, and to the president's desk. And we will be there to hold the politicians accountable for how they vote.

It's long past time for the Fed's books to be opened. We can make it happen, and we can do it this year.

I'm glad that Bernie's trying to find the truth here.

And I agree. I am curious about the political parties of the folks who co-sponsored there. There needs to be a call for transparency from both sides.

Yes, but it would make more sense if members of both parties supported it and it might just have a chance of passing.

I'm not holding my breath now. With the way the economy is going, I don't see government taking the time to listen to what they may consider to be quaint proposals.

No offense, but I'm a bit of a realist here.

Default Bernanke Says U.S. May Need to Expand Bank Rescue

Help, BAILOUT MANIA Gone Wild!

Bernanke Says U.S. May Need to Expand Bank Rescue

By Craig Torres and Scott Lanman

“But our economy and financial markets face extraordinary challenges,”
and doing less now would eventually prove to be more costly, he said.

March 3 (Bloomberg) -- Federal Reserve Chairman Ben S. Bernanke said policy makers may need to expand aid to the banking system beyond the $700 billion already approved and take other aggressive measures even at the cost of soaring fiscal deficits.

“Without a reasonable degree of financial stability, a sustainable recovery will not occur,” the Fed chairman said today in testimony prepared for the Senate Budget Committee. “Although progress has been made on the financial front since last fall, more needs to be done.”

Bernanke’s comments suggest he sees a role for bigger federal outlays as the Obama administration seeks congressional approval for a budget of $3.55 trillion for the fiscal year beginning in October. President Barack Obama has already signed into a law a $787 billion economic stimulus package of tax cuts and government spending.

Thumbs down Fed Refuses to Release Bank Data, Insists on Secrecy

Fed Refuses to Release Bank Data, Insists on Secrecy

By Mark Pittman and Craig Torres

Banks oppose any release of information because that might signal weakness and spur short-selling or a run by depositors, the Fed argued in its response.

As this illusion crumbles away, this fleck might need a flick to expose a deeper evil. So I sense a treacherous lingering afoot. Their game is shielded in all directions, so if it falls it will be planned. Never will they risk exposure for what they are. Sacrifices will be made so to strengthen the agenda.

If Dr. Paul wins this one, it just might be the downfall of the fed.

So when the beast is exposed, people might be ****** that there was a beast and it has razor sharp claws.

So they might dress up the beast like a school girl and have her go take a time out.

Default The Fed's Iron Shroud of Secrecy

The Fed's Iron Shroud of Secrecy

Posted by Anthony Gregory on 03/05/09 1:52 PM

In response to a Bloomberg News lawsuit (See Post #8), "The Fed [has] refused. . . to disclose the names of the borrowers and the loans, alleging that it would cast 'a stigma' on recipients of more than $1.9 trillion of emergency credit from U.S. taxpayers and the assets the central bank is accepting as collateral."

For too long, the Fed has enjoyed the monopoly privileges that only big government can provide while demanding private sector levels secrecy and independence from government inquiry -- and then some. What a timely occasion for Ron Paul's Audit the Fed bill (See Post #3).

Default Ron Paulís bill to audit the Federal Reserve now has 33 co-sponsors

Ron Paulís bill to audit the Federal Reserve now has 33 co-sponsors

RonPaul.com | Mar. 19, 2009

Ron Paulís bill to audit the Federal Reserve continues to gain momentum. H.R. 1207 now has 33 co-sponsors (as of 3/19/2009)!

If you too would like to see Ben Bernanke squirm and finally discover what the Fed has been up to behind the scenes, call and write your representative and ask that they support the ďFederal Reserve Transparency Act H.R. 1207″.


Capitol Switchboard: (202) 224-3121

Hereís a sample letter you can use:


Dear Representative,

Please co-sponsor and/or support H.R.1207, an effort to audit the Federal Reserve.

Recently, it has come to light that there is little to no accountability to the people on the part of the Federal Reserve. While the citizens of this country are required by law to give an accounting of every penny they come in contact with, the Federal Reserve has never been held to the same standard. During this time of extreme economic crisis, the people deserve an accounting of where our money is going.

Currently there are 33 co-sponsors for this legislation, and it is enjoying bi-partisan support. Your efforts in supporting this important legislation would go a long way in proving to your constituents that you not only hold the Federal Reserve to the same standard as you do your constituents, but it would also show that you believe in transparency. Anything less than support for this resolution suggests that you are in favor of secrecy and a lack of accountability to the people who pay the bills. We pay the tab; we have a right to know where our money is going.

Unlike recent bills that you voted in favor of that had hundreds of pages and just a few hours to read, this bill can be read in under 5 minutes. I encourage you to take the time to read it, and then move to support it.

Thank you in advance for your attention on this important legislation. I have every expectation that you will do right by your constituents and support this measure.

Sincerely,

Auditing the Fed is only the first step towards exposing this antiquated insider-run creature to the powerful forces of free-market competition. Once there are viable alternatives to the monopolistic fiat dollar, the Federal Reserve will have to become honest and transparent if it wants to remain in business.

It's about time! Why not audit Fort Knox gold? Or...how about an audit of all Deep Underground Military Bases? That would really be digging up dirt! Go Ron Paul!

Should the Sherman Antitrust Act be applied to the Fed?

Antitrust Act (Sherman Act,[1] July 2, 1890, ch. 647, 26 Stat. 209, 15 U.S.C. ß 1–7) was the first United States Federal statute to limit cartels and monopolies. It falls under antitrust law.

The Act provides: "Every contract, combination in the form of trust or otherwise, or conspiracy, in restraint of trade or commerce among the several States, or with foreign nations, is declared to be illegal".[2] The Act also provides: "Every person who shall monopolize, or attempt to monopolize, or combine or conspire with any other person or persons, to monopolize any part of the trade or commerce among the several States, or with foreign nations, shall be deemed guilty of a felony [. . . ]"[3] The Act put responsibility upon government attorneys and district courts to pursue and investigate trusts, companies and organizations suspected of violating the Act. The Clayton Act (1914) extended the right to sue under the antitrust laws to "any person who shall be injured in his business or property by reason of anything forbidden in the antitrust laws."[4] Under the Clayton Act, private parties may sue in U.S. district court and should they prevail, they may be awarded treble damages and the cost of suit, including reasonable attorney's fees. [5]

Default 44th Co-Sponsor for 'Audit the Fed'

Three More Co-Sponsors Today!

Posted by Jesse Benton on 03/24/09 3:43 PM

Good news - Reps. Nathan Deal (GA), Trent Franks (AZ) and Pete Sessions (TX) all joined H.R. 1207 yesterday. Cosponsors now stand at 42.

All three are respected and have seniority. Rep. Sessions, as head of the NRCC, is in particular a power player.

Comments at source: http://www.campaignforliberty.com/blog.php?view=14147


HAVEN'T HEARD WHO THE 43rd CO-SPONSOR IS YET!
Just found the 43rd co-sponsor: Rep. Miller, Jeff (FL-1) - 3/24/2009


44th Co-Sponsor for 'Audit the Fed' (that number sounds familiar )

Former Republican Whip Roy Blunt (MO) signed on yesterday. The momentum continues!

Alameda County GOP Supports HR 1207

Posted by Matt Hawes on 03/31/09 2:43 PM

As you may recall, back last summer we did a few posts on the Alameda County, California GOP, as several Ron Paul supporters had won election to the Central Committee but were sued in an attempt to prevent them from taking their seats (under the claim that they hadn't been Republicans long enough.) Despite the challenges, they went on to defend themselves successfully and take their places on the Central Committee.

Now, the Alameda County GOP has passed a resolution in support of HR 1207, and they have been working hard to get other organizations to do the same. They also lobbied Democrat Representative Pete Stark, who is now a cosponsor. Keep up the good work, guys!

The text of their resolution is as follows:

Default AUDIT the FED - 55 congressman agree !!!

This is so important. Please watch short video by Ron Paul about holding Federal; Reserve accountable..etc




April 3, 2009

Dear Friend of Liberty,

Your outspoken support for Ron Paulís Audit the Fed bill is working!

The politicians are taking notice, and already 55 of them have signed on as co-sponosors to HR 1207. There has even been a companion bill introduced in the Senate. This is great news!

Now is the time to push harder!

Dr. Paul recently spoke about the gathering momentum of this movement, and he is optimistic that this bill really can pass. Please take a minute to listen to him in the video linked below.

<http://echo4.bluehornet.com/ct/4416573:5206465995:m:1:336699378:9F8743CF026FB5FCA 68F7A5793BA70E9>



http://www.campaignforliberty.com/campaigns/hr1207.php <http://echo4.bluehornet.com/ct/4416573:5206465995:m:1:336699378:9F8743CF026FB5FCA 68F7A5793BA70E9>


As you can see, Dr. Paul is enthusiastic about our chances, and his spirits are really buoyed by the outpouring of grassroots support.

It is essential that our government operate with as much transparency as possible, now more than ever. But the Federal Reserveís operations remain shrouded in secrecy.

When people found out that Congress had quietly appropriated millions for AIG bonuses, people were outraged.

Imagine their reaction when they hear about the TRILLIONS the Fed has secretly been sending to Wall Street!

If you have not already done so, it is vital that you sign the petition <http://echo4.bluehornet.com/ct/4416574:5206465995:m:1:336699378:9F8743CF026FB5FCA 68F7A5793BA70E9> urging your Congressman to cosponsor the Audit the Fed bill. The thousands already signed up have shown that your voice really can move Congress to act.

Even if you have already signed the petition, there is still more you can do to help. Forward this e-mail to your friends and encourage them to get on board and sign the petition <http://echo4.bluehornet.com/ct/4416574:5206465995:m:1:336699378:9F8743CF026FB5FCA 68F7A5793BA70E9> . This is a winning effort and your friends wonít want to miss out.

Campaign for Liberty will be matching the overwhelming activity of the grassroots. We will be gathering hundreds of thousands more petitions and lobbying Congressmen on the fence. A few days before the vote, if we have the resources, we plan to run hard-hitting targeted newspaper, radio and TV ads.

Such a massive effort wonít be easy Ė or cheap.

So in addition to signing your petition or forwarding this e-mail to a friend, I also hope you will make a contribution of $25, $50 or $100 to Campaign for Liberty.

Listen to how encouraged Dr. Paul is already <http://echo4.bluehornet.com/ct/4416573:5206465995:m:1:336699378:9F8743CF026FB5FCA 68F7A5793BA70E9> . Heís been seeing the inaction in Congress for years, so he should know when the politicians are beginning to wake up.

Letís reward his hard work by helping pass his momentous bill that will change our monetary system forever.

To make that milestone possible, please click here <http://echo4.bluehornet.com/ct/4416575:5206465995:m:1:336699378:9F8743CF026FB5FCA 68F7A5793BA70E9> to donate to Campaign for Liberty. Your contribution of $25, $50, $100 Ė or even more Ė will allow us to ramp up the efforts that have Dr. Paul so optimistic.

We can do this, but we need your help.

Campaign for Liberty canít just print money out of thin air like the out of control Federal Reserve. Only your voluntary contributions permit us to do this work.

So please, listen to Dr. Paul <http://echo4.bluehornet.com/ct/4416573:5206465995:m:1:336699378:9F8743CF026FB5FCA 68F7A5793BA70E9> talking about the progress weíve made, forward this e-mail to a friend, and make a generous contribution <http://echo4.bluehornet.com/ct/4416575:5206465995:m:1:336699378:9F8743CF026FB5FCA 68F7A5793BA70E9> to Campaign for Liberty to help make this bill a reality.

In Liberty,

John Tate
President,
Campaign for Liberty

P.S. Ron Paulís Audit the Fed bill now has 55 cosponsors and is still gaining momentum! Click here <http://echo4.bluehornet.com/ct/4416573:5206465995:m:1:336699378:9F8743CF026FB5FCA 68F7A5793BA70E9> to hear how encouraged Dr. Paul is with the flood of petitions on Capitol Hill, and how optimistic he is about this billís chances.

If you havenít done so already, please click here to sign the petition <http://echo4.bluehornet.com/ct/4416574:5206465995:m:1:336699378:9F8743CF026FB5FCA 68F7A5793BA70E9> urging your Congressman to cosponsor H.R. 1207. And please make a generous contribution <http://echo4.bluehornet.com/ct/4416575:5206465995:m:1:336699378:9F8743CF026FB5FCA 68F7A5793BA70E9> of $25, $50, or $100 so Campaign for Liberty can afford to give this bill the tireless support it deserves.

I can't even imagine what might happen if this passes. I mean when you think about it, what will congress then do if they audit the Fed and see that they have been raping our country for decades? Will they man up and boot them? Or will we all of a sudden see this bill get shot down for suspicious reasons?? I guess we will just wait and see.

Good on Ron Paul!

The privately owned Fed Reserve has been raping (financially) Americans and people around the World since 1913 when it was set up on Jekyll Island.

People interested in this should read the excellent expose by Ed griffin called The creature From Jekyl Island - a must read! And also check out Ellen Brown's book Web of Debt or see her great site www.webofdebt.com

Time for a change!
