The Fed IS a Private Bank

I will admit that I occasionally read and watch Alex Jones.  A lot of people think he’s a nutter, and he certainly comes across that way a lot of the time.  He’s not always right – given the amount of material that they put out daily, it would be hard to be right about everything – but I do think he’s got the right idea on a lot of things, and I rather enjoy watching him make trouble.

Last weekend, he went on a little road trip around Texas taking aim at the Federal Reserve banks of Texas.  The Fed is a private bank, which seems to be more common knowledge now.  I even had a left-leaning friend of mine over the weekend admit that she’d finally checked up on my accusation that the Fed is private and found that I was right!  I was right about the federal income tax, too.  (It’s the small triumphs – let me toot my horn.  I’ve been waiting literally years for people to check up on me.)  Anyway, Alex was protesting down in San Antonio, and a private policeman came out and told them that they had to leave because the Fed property is private property.  Let me say it again: Federal Reserve Bank property is private property.  Although they receive tax money from us, it is NOT public property.

Alex made the video and, as per usual, he posted it to YouTube.  Apparently, the Federal Reserve has lodged a complaint with YouTube that this is a violation of their privacy and is going to attempt to either get the video removed or shut down the Alex Jones YouTube channel.  I guess they’ve finally had enough of his trouble-making.

Personally, I’m strongly in favor of auditing the Fed immediately, if not sooner.  I don’t think any entity that is receiving federal tax dollars has too many privacy rights.  The taxpayers have a right to know where their money is going – to whom it is going.  And until I see that $9 trillion that is still missing off the balance sheet, I have no trust and no love for the Fed.  Well… I didn’t have any love for them before, either.

Please check out the video.  We need to dispel the myth that the Fed is federal.  It’s about as federal as FedEx.  They are a private institution, and they survive on tax dollars.  Talk about a welfare recipient!

Also, please sign the petition to Audit the Fed.  There are currently 183 co-sponsors for HR 459 in the House, and 18 co-sponsors in the Senate.  Please help get this movement off the ground.  It is vitally important that we hold this institution accountable and find out where our money is going.
