Audit of the Federal Reserve Reveals $16 Trillion in Secret Bailouts | Unelected.org]
---------------------------- Original Message ----------------------------Subject: Fw: Audit of the Federal Reserve Reveals $16 Trillion in Secret : Audit of the Federal Reserve Reveals $16 Trillion in Secret Bailouts Posted by Paul Krugman on July 21st, 2011 The first ever GAO(Government Accountability Office) audit of the Federal Reserve was carried out in the past few months due to the Ron Paul, Alan Grayson Amendment to the Dodd-Frank bill, which passed last year. Jim DeMint, a Republican Senator, and Bernie Sanders, an independent Senator, led the charge for a Federal Reserve audit in the Senate, but watered down the original language of the house bill (HR1207), so that a complete audit would not be carried out. Ben Bernanke (pictured to the left), Alan Greenspan, and various other bankers vehemently opposed the audit and lied to Congress about three effects an audit would have on markets. Nevertheless, the results of the first audit in the Federal Reserves nearly 100 year history were posted on Senator Sanders webpage earlier this morning: http://sanders.senate.gov/newsroom/news/?id=9e2a4ea8-6e73-4be2-a753-62060dcbb3c3
What was revealed in the audit was startling: $16,000,000,000,000.00 had been secretly given out to US banks and corporations and foreign banks everywhere from France to Scotland. From the period between December2007 and June 2010, the Federal Reserve had secretly bailed out many of the worlds banks, corporations, and governments. The Federal Reserve likes to refer to these secret bailouts as an all-inclusive loan program, but virtually none of the money has been returned and it was loaned out at 0% interest. Why the Federal Reserve had never been public about this or even informed the United States Congress about the $16trillion dollar bailout is obvious the American public would have been outraged to find out that the Federal Reserve bailed out foreign banks while Americans were struggling to find jobs.
To place $16 trillion into perspective, remember that GDP of the United States is only $14.12trillion. The entire national debt of the United States governments planning its 200+ year history is only $14.5 trillion. The budget that is being debated so heavily in Congress and the Senate is only $3.5trillion. Take all of the outrage and debate over the $1.5 trillion deficit into consideration, and swallow this Red pill: There was no debate about whether $16,000,000,000,000 would be given to failing banks and failing corporations around the world. In late 2008, the TARP Bailout bill was passed and loans of $800 billion were given to failing banks and companies. That was a blatant lie considering the fact that Goldman Sachs alone received 814 billion dollars. As is turns out, the Federal Reserve donated $2.5 trillion to Citigroup, while Morgan Stanley received $2.04 trillion. The Royal Bank of Scotland and Deutsche Bank, a German bank, split about a trillion and numerous other banks received hefty chunks of the $16 trillion. This is a clear case of socialism for the rich and rugged, you’re-on-your-own individualism for everyone else. Bernie Sanders(I-VT) When you have conservative Republican stalwarts like Jim DeMint(R-SC)and Ron Paul(R-TX) as well as self identified Democratic socialists like Bernie Sanders all fighting against the Federal Reserve, you know that it is no longer an issue of Right versus Left. When you have every single member of the Republican Party in Congress and progressive Congressmen like Dennis Kucinich sponsoring a bill to audit the Federal Reserve, you realize that the Federal Reserve is an entity onto itself, which has no oversight and no accountability. Americans should be swelled with anger and outrage at the abysmal state of affairs when a un-elected group of bankers can create money out of thin air and give it out to megabanks and super corporations like Halloween candy. If the Federal Reserve and the bankers who control it believe that they can continue to devalue the savings of Americans and continue to destroy the US economy, they will have to face the realization that their trillion dollar printing presses will eventually plunder the world economy. The list of institutions that received the most money from the Federal Reserve can be found on page131

God creates man.
God gives mankind a brain.
God gives mankind a soul.
God gives mankind free will.
God expects mankind to use brain.
Mankind refused to use brain.
Mankind gives up free will.
Mankind gives up body.
Mankind gives up his money.
Mankind gives up his soul.
Mankind becomes a slave.
When mankind gives up his brain, his free will, and his soul he becomes a target for the forces of evil in both governments and religions. To know where you are going and where you came from and an analysis of the human condition read: COSMOLOGICAL ICE AGES.
