    Finally! The one thing that doesn't get much mainstream attention is being addressed. The Federal reserve bank is a socialists dream come true. I started reading about Andrew Jackson attacking the central banks. He's one of the last ones to stick to his guns and fight this thing.
    The Fed's role in this mess is getting so little attention.


    Should We Kill the Fed?
    by Patrick J. Buchanan on April 03, 2009

    For the financial crisis that has wiped out trillions in wealth, many have felt the lash of public outrage.

    Fannie and Freddie. The idiot-bankers. The AIG bonus babies. The Bush Republicans and Barney Frank Democrats who bullied banks into making mortgages to minorities who could not afford the houses they were moving into.

    But the Big Kahuna has escaped.

    The Federal Reserve.

    ”(T)he very people who devised the policies that produced the mess are now posing as the wise public servants who will show us the way out,” writes Thomas Woods in Meltdown.

    Already in its sixth week on the New York Times best-seller list, this eminently readable book traces the Fed’s role in every financial crisis since this creature was spawned on Jekyl Island in 1913.

    The “forgotten depression” of 1920-21 was caused by a huge increase in the money supply for President Wilson’s war. When the Fed started to tighten at war’s end, production fell 20 percent from mid-1920 to mid-1921, far more than today.

    Why did we not read about that depression?

    Because the much-maligned Warren Harding refused to intervene. He let businesses and banks fail and prices fall. Hence, the fever quickly broke, and we were off into “the Roaring Twenties.”

    But, the Fed reverted, expanding the money supply by 55 ...

    Great Glen Beck video on the subject. He's about the only one talking about this in the MSM

    "I am a most unhappy man. I have unwittingly ruined my country. A great industrial nation is controlled by its system of credit. Our system of credit is concentrated. The growth of the nation, therefore, and all our activities are in the hands of a few men. We have come to be one of the worst ruled, one of the most completely controlled and dominated Governments in the civilized world no longer a Government by free opinion, no longer a Government by conviction and the vote of the majority, but a Government by the opinion and duress of a small group of dominant men." -Woodrow Wilson, after signing the Federal Reserve into existence

    Andrew Jackson also understood the danger of a central bank. He suggested that a Republic would fail if such monopoly on the public money was allowed. His story doesn't get near the attention either. This story get's little historical attention because it's so banal and boring, but it's a significant economic event in the 19th century.

    That's probably the only quote of Wilson's I will probably ever agree with. ;)

    Yeah...uh well.....If you think this guy is a conservative or represents something other than "predominant" media then.....




    I really can't relate, because I rarely get my Nuzzz from those sources. Sure, Fox and CNN is entertaining but I prefer to watch CSPAN and make my own conclusions.

    I'd like this to be a discussion about the good/bad of the fed and who's talking about it.....
    So do me a favor and start another thread about how fox isn't msm and the bastion of all things conservative and troll that one.

    Ya know - I try to make conversation with your uptight ass and be personable and friendly - and you have to be a dick. Good job molon.

    Murdock is interested in making money - he saw a void in media coverage and filled it. I give the man credit for that.

    BTW - what else is there to discuss? the Fed should go - every conservative agrees. Nothing else to see or say here.

    I'm not the one who suggested Glen Beck is like a Matt Drudge, Taki Theodoracopulos, or Paul Craig Roberts.

    When Fox and so called "conservative" medias predominant message is for complete and utter rollbacks of The great society, and The New deal and show me that they intend to support the idea of opening up the Federal reserve to monitor by the public or do away with it completely, then I'll believe they represent conservatism and not more of the same MSM only with a few more slants our wayto get conservatives to watch and cheer.

    If the only thing they talk about is "tax breaks" and "reductions" in spending, then they're no better than the Left who've gotten everything they've wanted over the last century. And Republican's are complicit in it because they've just moved the ball up the field slower.

    So go take Rupert and his ilk and sell it to someone else. He's part of the problem.

    Oh and btw...doesn't he vote for the liberals?

    The fed should go, but very few conservatives agree. More, maybe, now that they aren't running things, but still not many.
