Oh how history repeats itself!
While America Sleeps...
December 23, 1913, while most of Congress was on Christmas break a few that stayed in Washington sneaked the Federal Reserve Act by, and it was quickly signed into law before the other members of Congress could get back to Washington to do anything about it.
This Federal Reserve Act is expiring NOW - THIS YEAR 2013 in DECEMBER.
Will the Congress sell the nation back into slavery and into the hands of the criminal banking system again?
I think we all know the answer to that one!
100 more years of slavery...
The Federal Reserve Act was enacted on the 23rd of December in the year 1913
The Federal Reserve System, a Christmas Gift that Keeps on Taking
by Szandor Blestman
Ninety nine years ago this month, the law that brought the Federal Reserve System into existence was passed. It did so at the behest of some very wealthy and very greedy men who wanted nothing less than total control of as much of the world’s total wealth that they could possibly get their hands on. These men with names like Aldrich, Rockefeller, Rothschild, Vanderlip, Kuhn, Loeb, Warburg, Morgan, Schiff, et al. wanted nothing less than total control of finances, currencies and economies worldwide. They wanted it so badly that they cared not what the majority might think, and they certainly didn’t care what the common folk at the time might think. These were the robber barons of finance in their day, and they knew the general public wouldn’t trust them or their banking schemes. It was for this reason they had to remain secretive in their plans and use every deception and political dirty trick in their arsenal to achieve their goals.
It took three years to set things up, but just before Christmas, on the 23rd of December in the year 1913, the Federal Reserve Act was enacted. It was sold to the American people as a sort of present to them, a way to stabilize the economy and prevent boom and bust cycles. What it was in actuality was a present to the wealthiest amongst us, the central bankers, and a way for them to gain control of our economy for their own benefit and to secure their power. It was a way for them to steal the real wealth of the common folk in such a way that most would never know or understand how their prosperity was being stolen.
Think about the date it was passed just for a second. It was just two days before Christmas. It was during the time when fully a third of the legislators had already gone back to their home states to spend time with their families.
I’m not completely certain about how things were back then, but in today’s world this is a time when most people are not paying attention to politics. I imagine it was the same even back then. Who wants to think about what politicians and lawmakers are doing when there are plans to be made for the big holiday?
Any law that is passed at this time of year should be suspect. Any law that is passed after elections have taken place and before the new congress critters have taken their oath of office leaves too many of the political class completely unaccountable.
As many of you may know I am not a big fan of laws and regulations. The more laws we have, the more tyranny we have, the fewer laws we have, the more freedom we have. The law should be simple, if you do harm to an individual or you damage or steal his hard earned property, you should be held accountable. If there is no victim, there is no crime. If there are to be laws and regulations to make sure that no thought crimes are committed, however, than those laws and regulations should be restricting the political class and punishing them for breeching the laws.
I think a good law would be that no legislation is to be passed during the period of time between an election and the swearing in of the new congress. That seems to be the time when the most constitution shredding, tyrannical, and controversial legislation seems to be passed.
But of course the political class and the power elite who control them don’t want to create anything that limits their power, they want to limit what the common folk can do. They want to make certain their power base is maintained and grown. They want more power, not less, and so they are going to create laws and institutions that help them to gain it. They do this by removing or hiding what little control the common folk may have over the systems and institutions where the government claims to have a monopoly and consolidating that power as much as they possibly can. They consolidate their monopoly power on the use of “legitimate” force by bypassing congressional oversight in war matters and creating laws such as The Patriot Act, The Military Commissions Act, and the most recent NDAA to set up a police state. They consolidate their monopoly on the justice system and put power in the hands of their judges by constantly harping on finding people either “guilty” or “not guilty” of crimes and refusing to inform juries of their right and duty to judge the law. And so it was that they consolidated their monopoly on currency creation and removed power from the hands of the common folks back in 1913 by passing The Federal Reserve Act.
Before the creation of the quasi private, quasi public Federal Reserve the power to coin money was solely vested in the US House of Representatives and money was based on silver and gold. It took the promise of the gift of stable prices and maximum employment through “elastic” currency to “sell” the American people on this central banking scheme. These promises, of course, have been broken time and again, and we are currently experiencing the latest downturn in the economy and the most massive unemployment in decades as a result of this ill conceived creation of the powerful financial interests. As history has shown, this institution does not give anything to the common folk, it takes everything from them.
It takes wealth. It does so by creating debt in the form of “easy” credit. This credit comes in the form of fractional reserves which more or less guarantees that there will never be enough currency to pay back everything that is owed. In this way, the banks are set up to own anything real that a borrower possesses for a little bit of paper, or in modern days some ones and zeroes in some digital data bank somewhere. The central banks and their financial sector partners have a tendency to horde commodities of real value such as precious metals, land, etc. while issuing their debt paper to an unsuspecting public.
It takes lives. One of the first things that happened after the creation of the Federal Reserve was World War I. There is a school of thought out there that this would not have happened had the Federal Reserve not been created, or at least America would not have become involved. The “elastic” nature of the new American currency made it possible to pay for the war on the backs of future generations, otherwise the rise in taxes would have created political pressure to avoid war.
World War I was supposed to be the war to end all wars. Instead most of the wars fought in the 20th century stem from World War I. Who is it that constantly benefits from such destruction? Who is it that profits from such suffering? The military industrial complex that we were warned about, and those that finance them even more so.
The Federal Reserve takes away value. It keeps pumping more and more money into the system, creating it like the money itself is the wealth and not just a token of exchange. The more money that is available, the greater the supply, the less it is worth. Those at the top, the power elite, can spend it while its buying power is still high, but those at the bottom, the common folk, receive the money after its value has decreased. That is what inflation is really about. That is why the costs of necessities are rising. And now your federal government needs to tax you even more so that they too can maintain their spending addictions.
The Federal Reserve System takes our freedom. It takes away our independence. It profits off debt. For every dollar it loans out it expects to take back ten. It creates a debtor nation and then makes the citizenry beholden to it for economic survival. It makes the nation dependent on its currency and credit like a junkie is dependent on a drug. It takes away the political will of the people by creating the fear that we will not be able to get our fix should the currency supplier be held accountable.
The cycle can be broken. First, more people need to be educated as to the origin of the Federal Reserve as well as how other central banks operate. A full audit of the Federal Reserve needs to take place and all moneys accounted for. Secrecy must be stopped and transparency demanded. The people of the United States deserve to know where all their money, all their wealth is being spent, and why more of it isn’t being saved to ensure prosperity for future generations. Finally, a way needs to be found to make the system accountable. No one should have such awesome power as a monopoly on currency creation enables. Strike at the source of the corruption, and we will begin to create a more honest and principled world for all to live in.
Nearly a hundred years ago, the Wilsonian progressives helped the moneyed elite sell the American public on a gift that to this day continues to keep on taking. Even Wilson himself realized he made a mistake when in later years he wrote: “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.”
Today the so called progressives want to continue to raise taxes. They want to keep the burden on the common folk. They want to treat symptoms rather than remove the cancer and cure the disease. They talk about those making over $250,000 a year as if they are the wealthy while bailing out those worth $250 billion. They want to steal from those who have become successful through industrious hard work while ignoring those who have made trillions through fraudulent and questionable means. That is not progress, it is tyranny against those who should be lauded for their hard work and successful endeavors. If you want progress, start by tearing down the stale old institutions that have been proven failures. Such an institution is the Federal Reserve. We have already given it too much and still it wants to take more.

Big Brother America: Government Preparing for the End of the Federal Reserve Charter in 2013
"In December of 2013, the Federal Reserve Charter will come to an end. The monetary enslavement created by Woodrow Wilson and the Central Bankers will come to a close.
In order for the Federal Reserve to retain control over the United States money supply, this charter will have to be resigned by Congress.
Yet, considering the public knowledge of how dangerous central banks are to a governmental system, it may pose a problem for the privately owned bank to reup their charter."

The Federal Reserve Charter began on December 23, 1913. This charter was good for 100 years, ensuring the Federal Reserve’s control over the United States currency.
Prior to centralized banking, each commercial bank issued their own notes. The first institution with responsibilities of a central bank in the U.S. was the First Bank of the United States, chartered in 1791 by Alexander Hamilton. Its charter was not renewed in 1811. In 1816, the Second Bank of the United States was chartered; its charter was not renewed in 1836, after it became the object of a major attack by president Andrew Jackson. From 1837 to 1862, in the Free Banking Era there was no formal central bank, and banks issued their own notes again. From 1862 to 1913, a system of national banks was instituted by the 1863 National Banking Act. The first printed notes were Series 1914. In 1928, cost-cutting measures were taken to reduce the note to the size it is today.
Today, the Federal Reserve prints the legal tender for the United States. It controls inflation of that currency, its worth and how much of it is in circulation at any given time. The currency is not backed by gold, silver or any other precious metal. It is fractionally created from the debt of the United States government to the privately owned and controlled Federal Reserve Bank. Each note printed by the central bank is worth roughly $ 0.80 cents (depending on the fluctuating currency rate). The debt mounts up as the federal no0tes are printed because as each is worth less, the value is lessend as well.
In the case, the debt cannot be repaid because the legal tender is never worth more than the debt.
In December of 2013, the Federal Reserve Charter will come to an end. The monetary enslavement created by Woodrow Wilson and the Central Bankers will come to a close. In order for the Federal Reserve to retain control over the United States money supply, this charter will have to be resigned by Congress. Yet, considering the public knowledge of how dangerous central banks are to a governmental system, it may pose a problem for the privately owned bank to reup their charter.
In the early 1900's, the excuse for the bank’s creation was to balance the monetary issues of the day. However, once the Federal Reserve was into control, the stock market crashed and the Great Depression began. It also consolidated the smaller banks into the hands of the larger mega-banks of the time; putting more and more power into the hands of a few bankers.
Would the American public today allow this to continue if they were given a choice?
At the end of 2013, this choice will be on the table for America to decide if the Central Bankers will continue to force the population to be as feudal serfs to a monetary system created simply for enslavement.
Recently, developments in the realm of the monetary system and governmental control have surfaced. The circumstances seem to be unrelated, however when the dots are connected, a picture begins to form. If the charter and control of the Federal Reserve is coming to a close within less than two years, how would alternative means of ensuring control be put into place if the Congress did not reup the charter for the Fed?
It might look something like this:
12/31/2011 – NDAA signed by President Obama.
This legislation gives the President power to secretly arrest, detain American citizens without trial, and even kill them.
Late 2011 – The Enemy Expatriation Act, or H.R. 3166
If this bill were passed, it would strip US citizens of their citizenship, therefore allowing the government to treat them as terrorists.
December 2011 – FEMA Camps activated.
FEMA camps are designed to house millions of people. The official reason is for displaced populous due to an economic or financial crisis.
10/2011 – ACTA Treaty signed by 22 countries globally.
This treaty allows those countries the power to censor the internet in their country at the will of the governments. This treaty was effectively executed after the protests of SOPA and PIPA.
11/2011 Para-militarization of local police
The military training local police departments and giving them access to military grade weaponry, computer technology, and assistance of the National Guard when requested for population control.
2009 and Before – Urban Warfare Drills
Training the US Military Services to detain American citizens, use force if necessary, and/or kill them.
It appears the United States government is making preparations for civil unrest. Could a contributing reason be the coming end of the Federal Reserve Charter in 2013? If the charter ends, the monetary system will have to either be reinvented without the fractional reserve control of the central banking system, or the charter will have to be resigned for another determined amount of time.
And yet, there seems to be another answer looming on the horizon. The IMF and World Central Bank have been calling for a world monetary system where the Bancor will be the global currency. This would take care of the individual countries’ differing monies. This would also appear to take care of the governmental debts all of these countries have incurred against the central banks of the world. As fiat currencies all over the global are being imploded or abandoned, this control over the world’s money cloaks a dangerous agenda.
With world currency, comes world governance. In the beginning of 2012, the United Nations, France, China and other countries have called for a One World Government. And considering the United States is slipping into a police state control, the answer of global governance could be the next step in the take over agenda.
Most of us rely on our money for everything. We do not know how to be self-sustaining in any capacity. Our dependence on the functionality of the system will be turned into the shackles that hold us down and permanently enslave us. This is when the System will use the Problem-Reaction-Solution formula to finally lock us down.
1. They created the fractional fiat currency printed in debt.
2. They will expect us to decry a new monetary system as this one shows itself to be failing.
3. They will issue a global currency (with paper or RFID chip) to save the populous from total economic collapse.
Wake up America. The red alert is flashing. Now is the time to pay attention and prepare for self-sufficiency.
